I believe that the most important component of women’s health and women’s personal blossoming is their physiological state. Physiological state is about how the body and organs work on the inside.
A physiological state which is calm, loving and connected brings good health and prosperity; while a physiological state of anxiety, fear and fighting brings diseases, bad conditions, relationship breakdown and financial turmoil.
A physiological state is not equal to an emotional state. There are some differences between the two. The emotional state is all about the emotions you experience in a particular moment. The physiological state is how your body reacts to those emotions.
That means that if your physiological state is calm, loving and connected your body becomes resilient to any stress, pressure or adversity.

Quote of the Week
"The intuitive mind is a Sacred Gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."
You also become more intuitive and aware of what your body is telling you during each particular situation.
Physiological state of a woman depends on her hormonal balance.
Oxytocin is a hormone of love, connectedness and body awareness. Having enough oxytocin makes women thrive
and blossom. It is a natural state for women to be in because oxytocin isreleased during labour and breastfeeding. Also, oxytocin is associated with the ability to bond with others and with the ability to love and feel loved. In women, if this ability (to love and feel loved) is decreased then all sorts of problems can arise: from simple depression and anxiety to the more serious like cancer, suicide, autoimmune illnesses and so on.
There is another hormone - adrenaline - which is responsible for the physiological states of stress, anxiety and fears as well as our so called “fight or flight response”.
“Fight or flight” is important only if we are in a survival state. When you need to escape from danger or fight for your own life or the lives of your children. It is a very primitive emotional response and our ancestors used it as a survival mechanism to cope with dangerous situations. But now what we’ve done is we activated the ‘fight or flight’ system so often that it becomes a type of default mechanism.
It gets activated in the wrong places, at the wrong times, and with people we love or want to be friends with, not with a real threat. Activating ‘fight or flight’ too often makes us over-adrenalized and puts us in a bad physiological state where our body and organs don’t function very well.
Producing more of the “love hormone” oxytocin is the answer to most women’s problems: be it health problems or relationship problems or even financial problems because if you are over-adrenalized you can’t think rationally, can’t be intuitive and can’t make the right choices in life.
