I used to be an addict.
Not the kind of addict that people judge or at least frown upon.
But the kind of addict that people kind of support in our modern 24-hour work society, because being addicted to stress also means you can get a lot of work done in a very short time.
Adrenaline does that for you. You feel great, butterflies in your stomach, you can think really clear, have loads of energy and you’re at the top of your game.
I have always loved the pressure of waiting until the very last moment before I would do what needed to be done.
I was the kid that stared out of the window for the first 20 minutes of doing a test and then I answered all off the questions in a surge of adrenaline in the final minutes before the bell rang. I loved that feeling in my belly.
I got addicted to it.
Addicted to adrenaline.
Addicted to stress.
If you know anything about human design and genekeys, you won’t be surpised that stress is in my hologenetic profile, twice!
And no surprise, I manifested all kinds of situations in my life that caused me stress. My adrenal glands were working overtime.
But living on adrenaline also has a downside. Our bodies are not made to deal with a constant surge of adrenaline and cortisol. Adrenaline is great for situations that require a fight-flight response but let’s be honest, these days we don’t really need to survive on a daily basis. We don’t need adrenaline pumping through our veins 24/7. It causes all kinds of physical and mental problems, like burnout (adrenal fatigue), sleeping disorders, high bloodpressure and weight gain and hairloss.
It’s not easy to quit producing adrenaline. It’s not the same as to quit smoking, which I did about 15 years ago. I just decided to quit and stopped buying cigarettes (and yes, it can be that easy, a real decision is that powerful!)
Adrenaline is an inside factor and it takes some time to condition your body into changing the chemical cocktail it produces for you on a daily basis.
It’s kind of a self-supporting system. Your body produces adrenaline, that causes your mind to think certain thoughts and these thoughts cause your body to produce more adrenaline.
The only way to break this cycle is to change your thoughts.
Or to stop thinking all together 😉
It’s all about reprogramming your body and mind on a quantum level.
I love to help my clients with that and I am about to have two open spaces in my private one-on-one mentoring program. Contact me if you’re interested and want to learn more about what it means to work with me on that level.
