The imagined mix of physical and psychological issues

Updated January 21, 2023

Those who think their body should be transformed and become more spiritual need to be more physical. The body is solely material. Hence it cannot be mixed with something immaterial. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

In most cases, you do not have to read Alexius’ Duality Hacks in a particular order. But in the case of this article, you may benefit from reading about the perception ‘it is what it is’ in hack #4.2 The brain’s script and how to perceive it to be happy.

For years there has been an unhealthy idea about uniting body, mind and soul. However, the body is a physical unit built to deal with material matters, not mental, emotional or metaphysical ones – like the physical and cyberspace cannot be combined, except in fantasy. In other words, the assumed link between a problem in the psyche and the body, or vice versa, is make-believe. How to undo that is what hack #4.3 The fake mix of physical and non-physical issues, explores.

Naturally, the body is exhausted after working, jogging or doing something else that requires much energy. But if you respond to the body’s condition with anxiety and assume those feelings are connected, it feels like the body is about to collapse. However, since the connection between a physical and psychological issue is made up, so is the supposed outcome. Hence it cannot be healed in the body but where it is imagined, namely in the mental zone.

On the other hand, if you deal with the body’s tiredness physically, the problem is probably solved by a good night’s sleep. And if you deal with anxiety where it is, namely in the mental sphere, you see it has nothing to do with feeling tired but old feelings of not making triggered by feeling exhausted. But you made it. That is why you are tired. And you will feel anew after resting the body.

The body is made to interact with structures that, like itself, are material. That is why the body interprets your attempts to integrate it with non-physical feelings or ideas of spirituality as an attack on its integrity, which it must defend itself against.

You will never find anything physical in the digital world. Likewise, you never see something physical in the psychological sphere or vice versa. In other words, the concept of a body-mind connection is a scam.

Non-physical feelings are fleeting, so if you want to make them last, you must combine them with something more lasting, like physical feelings. However, immateriality and materiality do not mix, so their combination is purely speculative. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

A psychological feeling only seems sticky or hidden when imagined combined with something substantial. Undoing this fantasy by facing the psychological issue in the mental area may at first seem like torture because you fear what you have suppressed. However, if you do not edit the unpleasantness, it will not remain long because the mental zone is airy, so one look at it is enough to dissolve it. That happens so fast that you will not remember what you looked at. Read more about this process in Sadness is a close friend of gladness. In The psychological zone is anywhere, but in something solid, you can read about where the mental zone is.

Unfortunately, most people do not want to undo the belief in a body-mind connection. On the contrary, they want to uphold their imagined union of immaterial and material issues as authentic so that they can extend specific emotions and thus remain in a fantasy of lasting love, for example. Should their extended feelings be questioned, they refer to the bodily symptoms they claim are caused by psychological issues.

The nature of non-physical feelings is fleeting, so if you experience a specific one continuously, it is not due to the feeling but to you. You probably have combined it with a physical sensation in the body, which seems to make it more substantial and lasting. So, by imagining the psychological feeling in the stomach, you seem to experience it every time you have an upset stomach.

If it is an exceptional experience of love you want to hold onto, you probably combine it with a pleasant physical notion in the heart. And if it is a hateful memory you want to hold onto, you link it with physical unpleasantness in the chest. However, just as you cannot combine a wall with the wind, fusing a body with an abstract feeling is impossible.

Yet, it is possible to mentally blend the experience of physicality and psychology so that whenever you experience a specific kind of love, you think you feel something nice in the heart. And whenever you feel hatred towards someone, you imagine something weird in the chest. In both cases, it is a mental experience based on the wish to extend a psychological feeling by imagining it is linked with a physical experience.

You can undo this imagination by perceiving your reaction to the thought-up mix of physical and psychological feelings in the chest as ‘it is what it is.’ That renders your response indefinable. Therefore, since the body is set free from your thought-up mixture, it lines up with the biological system to outline the physical part of the combo and heal it in agreement with physical laws.

Most likely, the problem is the muscles. They have tightened up to defend against your attempt to inflict the body with non-physical issues. In that case, you can help the body by massaging it with fasciae tools from Blackroll, for example. However, to ensure you have no hidden heart problem, it is good to consult a healthcare professional.

When we project the weaknesses of our personality onto how we feel vulnerable parts of the body, such as the stomach, our perceived flaws seem to have been erased from our awareness. That is how we fool ourselves into believing we have been transformed. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

When something seems very scary in a movie, it is often experienced as real because fear builds up in your body. However, the film has no power to do that. The anxiety is not caused by the events in the movie but by how you perceive them.

You perceive the events as scary because you have conditioned yourself to interpret specific scenarios like that. And to make fear real, you project it onto a body part that already is tense and seems to get tenser when you give it your attention. Thus it feels as if the movie affects your body.

Sometimes, it is the other way around. For example, you have a stomach ache, but it does not add meaning to your life. So you imagine a psychological issue from your past causes the pain. Unfortunately, this thought-up combination results in a psychosomatic disorder that is impossible to disentangle because the psychological part is most likely pieced together.

Fortunately, you do not have to understand what is going on and why. As said above, you can undo this imaginary combo by perceiving your reaction to it as ‘it is what it is.’ That renders your response indefinable, wherefore it has no definable cause. And without a specific cause, there is no particular effect. In other words, the supposed psychosomatic disorder is undone.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

You have excluded what you do not like about yourself from your awareness by imagining it is linked with the feeling of a vulnerable body part. Therefore, since your psychological issues seem hidden inside physical problems, you unconsciously resist healing the physical difficulties that you imagine are blended with psychological issues.

It does not rain because you feel sad, nor does the rain has the power to make you feel bad. That is unless you choose to perceive such a course and effect. Likewise, the body cannot make you sad, nor does feeling unhappy make the body bad unless you imagine such a connection.

Projecting psychological feelings onto the body and expecting them to go away when the body is fixed is like placing feelings in your smartphone and thinking they to go away when the phone is repaired. Psychological feelings remain in the psychological sphere. Hence it is there they must be dealt with.

When you do not look for anything to make you feel better, your reaction to everything automatically is perceived as ‘it is what it is.’ Consequently, there is not something to upset you. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

Many people turn the body’s signals into mental messages by dematerialising the body – the genital zone, for example, is dematerialised via tantra sex. Read more about sex here. Thus it seems you can mentally decide that the signals from the abandoned areas are spiritual. But there is no spirituality in the body. On the contrary, the body is material. That is why it defends itself against the attempts to combine it with non-physical issues by turning it into a weapon against you.

Even though this feels distressing, you accept it because this further disrupts the natural flow of communication between the body and the brain, so you, not the brain, seem to be the body’s boss. However, the body does not understand the thought-up vision of a body-mind-soul connection. So again, it attacks your ideas of integrating it with spirituality by making the body suffer. And on it goes until you stop inflicting the body with your ideas of unity.

Fortunately, it does not matter how abused your body is regarding applying Alexius’ Duality Hacks. They bring you into a state of not-knowing regardless of the body. In this state, the slate is wiped clean, So when you return to the consciousness of being someone, the foolish ideas of a body-mind-soul connection are gone. Thus your body is happy, and since you appear to be in it, so are you.

Most do not feel and see the body as it is. Instead, they have a vision of what it will feel and look like in the future when they have successfully imposed their ideas of perfection upon it.

When you perceive your response to an experience as ‘I know what it is,’ it is based on a quick look at different points of view to see which one establishes you as in-the-know. The feeling of stress that this entails is not solved before you stop insisting, ‘I know what it is,’ and instead perceive your response as ‘it is what it is.’ This perception does not require you are on top of it. Thus, you are at peace.

When your reaction to something is perceived as ‘it is what it is,’ the specific meaning you decided your response opens up and reveals it is not singular but twofold. Therefore, paired with being pure, lust does not make you feel ashamed but joyful. Photo © Alexius Jorgensen.

The fastest way to repair a psychosomatic disorder is to not perceive it as ‘I know what it is but ‘it is what it is.’ The first view is definite, whereas the second does not have a monocratic but dualistic approach. Hence the second view aligns you with dualism, and since you are in a world of duality, this is the way to go if you want to feel complete.

In other words, to start the healing of a psychosomatic disorder, there is nothing you need to change but your perception of your reaction to it. Read more about that in The body is made to deal with physical issues, not psychological ones.

Sometimes, the breath is held back to prevent pain in a problematic body area. That is not healthy, nor is pushing the breath through it. Both approaches imply you believe that you are in control. However, you would quickly die if you should remember to breathe.

The solution to this is not to let the breath be. This idea also implies you are in charge. The key is to step back so that what you believe in being is out of the way. That is done by perceiving the fear that your problem seems to cause as ‘it is what it is.’ It reveals fear is not alone. It is complemented by confidence, defined by fear that outlines confidence.

In this interplay, called the duality flow, you feel complete, thus free. Therefore, since there is no attempt to interfere with the breath, it runs freely despite physical issues.

Whatever is perceived in the psyche to affect the body or in the body to affect the psyche is made-up connections. Fortunately, they are undone when you perceive your reaction to the effect as ‘it is what it is.’ However, you may feel empty when the idea of a body-mind connection goes down the drain. No worries. Soon you realise how laid-back life is without this fake unity.

Although the clothes and the body wearing them seem closely related, they do not understand each other. The clothes have no love or anything else to give the body and vice versa. Likewise, immateriality and materiality have nothing to give each other. Their reality is different. That is why psychological ideas of attaining physical wellness do not work.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Since psychological issues seem to impact the body significantly, many conclude they are connected. But that is like assuming clothes are connected with the body because you feel cold without them. They have absolutely nothing in common.

∞∞∞∞∞∞∞∞

Clothes feel good when adjusted to your body’s size. And the body feels good when you are adjusted to it, which you are when willing to fall all the way into the body. The purpose is not to integrate your awareness with the body but to enjoy the interaction of heaviness and lightness. It feels so good that grievances and desires disappear, so every moment is the perfect moment – nothing is wrong or missing. It goes on like that until you focus on something specific.

Applying one or more of Alexius’ Duality Hacks reestablishes the connection between the body and the brain. Not by healing the body, though, but by undoing the foolish idea that you are in it. Hence it becomes like a coat you wear. It follows you, but you are not the same.
