The Science Behind The Journey

Eight five percent of all illness is stress related. 

So in the times of stress and distress it’s no surprise that heart disease, cancer, depression, asthma, burnout and many other illnesses are on the increase.

Our emotions, thoughts and words influence our bodies and the effect our cells, DNA and ultimately our health.

Our emotions play an important role in our physical health

Over the years numerous scientists and medical doctors have studied and subsequently verified research in support of The Journey Method.

Dr Bruce Lipton, Candace B Pert (PhD) and Deepak Chopra MD and others, have shown that at a molecular level, suppressing emotions can lead to individual cell receptors becoming blocked and in some cases diseases.

Dr Deepak Chopra, in his book Quantum Healing, published the theory that trauma and suppressed negative emotions are often stored as in our cells. He argued that this negativity can cause disease and illness many years after they have rest been put in place. 

Suppressed emotions can block cells functioning

The science is also showing that negative thought patterns can block the immune system. Which means if we think negative thoughts it has an impact on our health.

Negative thoughts lead to negative emotions and in turn negative behaviours and actions. Whereas the reverse is true when you think a positive thought. 

Try out a little experiment with me. If you were to think a negative thought, for example, I cannot do it, what emotion would you feel? And the reverse now. If you were to think a positive thought, like I can do it, what would you feel. Are you more likely to engage in positive behaviours when you are feeling good or bad. 

“Psycho-neuro-immunology research has produced compelling evidence that our thought patterns directly and instantaneously affect our whole body chemistry, and can suppress our immune system (1).

We all ‘know’ that angry people get more heart attacks, and stressed-out people get ulcers. Only happy is healthy, and some evidence even links grief, fear or resentment to cancer (2)." Kevin Billet

Thought patterns can suppress your immune system

These blocks then interfere with the normal healthy communications between cells, and this impairs many body functions. Conversely, allowing the feelings and emotions to flow unblocks the receptors and helps maintain good health.

Renowned cellular biologist Dr Candace Pert has established that when we have repressed emotions, or issues we’ve buried or swept under the carpet, it creates a body chemistry that can block our cell receptors in certain areas of the body.

If those cells remain blocked over a long period of time there is an increased likelihood for illness to be created in the specific areas where the cells are blocked.

Illness starts where your cells are blocked

What Brandon Bays, founder of The Journey, discovered was how to access specific cell memories and, more importantly, how to actively resolve and let go of the stored issues. 

“What science has found is that when you’re at the peak of a strong emotion, if you suppress it at this time – for example as people do when they go into shock or have a trauma – a biochemical reaction will go into the bloodstream. If over time cells remain blocked, that’s where illness is going to start. The Journey Method helps you go through a process of releasing the trauma.” Brandon Bays

The key to cellular healing is to:

  • Release repressed emotions
  • Uncover and clear repressed trauma
  • Resolve unaddressed cell memories

Then your body and your being can naturally go about the process of healing leaving you soaring in boundless peace, wholeness and wellbeing.
