Epilepsy – The emotional links

Amanda Campbell/ June 4, 2016/ Blog/ 0 comments

Epilepsy occurs when the brain loses its ability to regulate the speed of the electrical charges (thoughts) that travel across neurons in the brain.

Fast charges causes a depolarisation in the neurones.
This may create unintentional stimulus that activates physical activity of the muscles, leading to a seizure.

The speed of the electrical activity can relate to the speed of the mind’s thought processes which are required to perform and respond to life’s situations.

In life, when one creates a belief or becomes concerned that they / someone may take inappropriate action, if they lose the ability to be in control of how fast they can or need to respond to a situation. The concern is based on their ability to control how fast, they need to think and then respond to a situation in life.
This may affect the function of the cells in the mind, that regulate the electrical system in the mind.

Emotions that may resonate with you now or in the past:

Feeling attacked, criticised.
Condemned to a certain fate.
Feeling neglected or mistreated.
Feeling abandoned, unwanted or violated.
The belief that something is wrong with you.

This concern becomes the topic of this person’s life, leading them to look at all of the events in their life through these eyes / belief. When the subconscious mind draws a comparison between their concern and a current situation – this is what may lead to an ‘attack’,


The brain is already designed to be fast and respond to our needs.
One must upgrade the information in one’s mind, rather than believe that the issue is about how quickly we might be able to respond to a situation.

Focus on practicing getting the body back into safe mode.
Write a journal
Stop yourself when you start to over-plan or overthink
Practice yoga

When we change the way we feel about something it can change what we see in our reality around us, but also what occurs biochemically in the body. Everything is connected.


I trust in the flow of life

All of our decisions always lead to precisely the correct situation to grow

Tuck is a community devoted to promoting sleep health awareness. Their research team has been looking into how seizures change the brain’s ability to regulate its sleep-wake cycle. They we want to spread the word about how patients with seizure disorders can get better sleep, so we created this resource guide:
