Molecules of Emotion/ Everything You Need to Know to Feel Go(o)d

      My original intent was to write about what I have learned from reading the book "Molecules of Emotion" by Candace Pert, Ph.D, but now I find myself reading her most recent book "Everything You Need to Know to Feel Go(o)d.  This is a fascinating read.  An accomplished, respected scientist who has made the connection between the workings of the body and the mind.. explains her research simply and clearly.  The connection comes down to the simple cell and it's workings.   The functioning of the body(mind) is directed by individual cells (their signals and reactions), based on their interaction with ligands (neurotransmitters, hormones and enzymes). This is the basis of the bodymind communication system.

Ligands are responsible for  98% of all data transfer in the body and brain. Each cell has surface receptors that move and shake creating a vibration, which will resonate with a ligand vibrating at the same frequency. At this point the binding action of the cell and ligand creates the signal for the cell to take action; grow, divide, repair etc.    This cellular vibration is a force of attraction.

Molecules of Emotion -Ligands
What you experience as a "feeling" is the attracting vibration and the connection of cell and ligand is the manifestation of that feeling.
