Dopamine is a type of neurotransmitter. Your body makes it, and your nervous system uses it to send messages between nerve cells. That’s why it’s sometimes called a chemical messenger. Dopamine plays a role in how we feel pleasure. It’s a big part of our unique human ability to think and plan. -Webmd
Have you ever seen the human body with out the flesh, bones & organs? Google it, you’ll see the nervous system in the shape of the body. These nerves are literally all connected flowing all around the body. What triggers the nervous is our experiences. With each experience comes a thought, with a thought comes an emotion. When this process occurs, hormones flow through the central nervous system as a reaction to what was just felt. Dopamine is the feel good hormone. It’s this hormone that pleasure releases. The biggest ways we are experiencing this now on the planet is through social medias notifications, porn, sugar & drugs. These days, it’s SO EASY to get a hit of dopamine. We go walking around the planet with cellular data constantly in our energy field because were carrying a mini computer in our pocket. Pull that puppy out & watch your reality become swept up in a whole new uncontrollable vortex of information. Everyone is on it. If you’re not, you’re probably a little old school and/ or odd. The issue with the excess of dopamine hits is the paralyzation it has to the body. After so much of the feel good pleasure it leads to laziness, anxiety, burn out & straight up addiction..
I have been on Instagram for years. Using it as a tool to inspire, but also to get my dopamine hits. Posting pictures & LOVING the attention its getting from my peers. Posting a story & viewing who is learning my content, DOPAMINE HIT right there. This habit that I have created is dangerous however. Why? Because it’s a vortex that I choose to jump in that leads me no where except uncertainty, mindlessness & no tangible progressive value that comes from it. IT TURNS ME INTO A ZOMBIE WHOSE ADRENAL GLANDS ARE SHOT. I am not in the present moment. I am not tapped into my organic vortex of thoughts & feelings. If I am not present & aware in my energy field, how can I expect to feel grounded, peaceful & solid in ANY aspect of my life. The influence of the social media is MAJOR, and most of us aren’t even aware of the negative effects it has on our mind body and soul.
I knew I had a problem when I opened my phone to call my dad but impulsively & habitually clicked the Instagram Vortex button. I was previously proud & happy that I have never dealt with addiction with substances but got a stern slap in the face when I realized I AM ADDICTED TO MY DOPED UP PHONE. The device that is FULL of all the unhealthy hits of temporary pleasure. What does an addict do? They want more & more & more & more. To twitter notifications, to Instagram, to Facebook, to Snapchat ect. ect. THIS IS KILLING OUR SOULS! THIS IS WHY DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY NUMBERS ARE HITTING AN ALL TIME PEAK!
I have been on social media (except for youtube) for 3 weeks now. I have never felt so good. Iv’e never realized how much through out the day I look at this device & expect to see SOMETHING pop up. Iv’e never felt more present. I’ve never felt more aware & in control. Iv’e never gotten so deep in morning meditations before. I FEEL ROOTED IN WHO I AM. I’m back to giving the number one thing in my life energy again.. ME. When I’m good, my family is better, my friends are better, my productions are better, my creations are better. I am of more quality, I produce more quality. WHY? Because I AM NOT ENSLAVED TO ANYTHING. I AM FREE. Freedom.. This is what all the Americans hype about. We’ll let me tell you that this feeling I have now is what will truly set you free. Because no matter what is happening in my external environment, (Right now we are quarantine with Corona.) I feel calm, peace, joy, relation & power knowing that I DO NOT RELY ON ANYTHING TO MAKE ME FEEL GOOD OUTSIDE OF MYSELF. Now THAT, that is power. Read that statement above again & really soak that up.
I expect i’ll be off the medias for awhile longer. I am going with the flow, however my current reaction to the thought of hoping back on anytime soon makes me feel SICK. I believe this is how a lot of us are feeling. Because the global consciousness is currently going through a big SHIFT & WAKE UP CALL. We will suffer immensely if one does not sacrifice the external things that is bringing in a low frequency & energy. Because as aspects of God, we are MADE to vibrate at a hight frequency. Social media is tricky, because its is swamped with LOW FREQUENCIES.
I AM listening to high energy music, eating simple nutritious foods, (avoiding meat & dairy intuitively.) being pressing with my family, reading, creating & LOVING. I am so grateful for the sacrifices I have made to FEEL this GOOD. I have never felt so strong in myself. I LOVE ME SO MUCH. I am realizing more and more everyday about myself, about what I want & don’t want. Journaling all my realizations, emotions & thoughts is SO therapeutic & relaxing. I challenge y’all to do a three day getaway. Get off all social media for a weekend, (It helps to delete the apps from your phone.) you may realize that going longer will feel good. After time away we’ll achieve and find a good balance of all the things. BALANCE IS BEING BROUGHT FORTH NOW!! God bless you, I love you.
