We all understand what stress means.
When it comes to our health, the
things in our lives that really stress us are the things that switch on our Survival
Instinct. Any long lasting or high impact stress simply signals danger to the mind & body.
This leads to a situation where the mind & body are no longer in a natural balance of
homeostasis. The conscious mind or soul* becomes overshadowed by the survival instinct & it is
a totally unconscious occurrence.
In this state, any weaker areas of our body no longer get
the extra energy that is necessary for basic function.
There are normal responses to stressors that are
simply a part of human life - such as accidents, birth or the death of loved ones.
If the stress response is long lasting or out of
proportion, it starts to
affect our ability to live a happy & healthy life. We also each have highly individual
stressors that are unique to our own survival instinct type.
*'Soul' is not meant in any religious context
& you can exchange the word 'consciousness' depending on preference.
We also all understand what exhaustion
switching on our survival instinct & affecting our health is about a serious depletion of life
energy. This is about much more than simply feeling naturally tired after working or playing hard.
This is the type of exhaustion that we don't bounce back from.
In this state of exhaustion, our survival
instinct is activated because such low energy levels puts a human being in danger. Our survival
instinct knows nothing about modern life - it is hard wired to surviving in tribal group life
in the wilds of nature.
If the exhaustion is long
lasting, it causes a
peculiar state of trying to 'compete for resources' which is a totally unconscious
occurrence. We naturally
try to push harder to compensate for the exhausted state & to stop other people
This is because humans can only survive by
living in groups & in a tribal group everyone must pull
their weight for the survival of the whole. If we are exhausted we cannot do this & our
survival instinct is switched on as a result. This is because we unconsciously fear being thrown
out of the group which puts us in serious danger.
When the survival instinct is switched
on and dominant for a
long time, we begin to produce symptoms of ill health. The survival instinct doesn't care about
sending any extra energy to our weaker areas. These weaker areas require extra energy from the body
to come up to the normal functioning capability of stronger areas. We are all born with naturally
weaker areas & we can acquire them due to poisoning or trauma. Aside from a serious accident or
accidental poisoning, I believe we are more likely to suffer trauma & toxicity to
those areas that are weaker in the first place!
There will always be a trigger
somewhere in the biography of the
person that led to a drop in energy; the survival instinct becoming dominant and the production of
This is about cause & effect: the effects
are the symptoms and it is very important to address both cause & effect rather than just the
symptoms the mind & body produce.

both what your triggers are and what your symptoms are. These Survival Instincts Patterns are
