Perspire Perspiration Sweat

Strong emotion, deeply moved, excitement, fear, intense feeling. It can also suggest you are feeling ill at ease about how others feel about you if you are worried about your body odour.

Mostly fear. As we get near to experiencing areas of our memory or inner feelings that disturb us, rapid heartbeat and perspiration are some of the first signs. Also excitement or feeling we are repulsive to others if we feel the perspiration is obnoxious. Pleasurable exertion.

Physiological effects can be caused and switch suddenly through our changing emotions. See Martial Art of the Mind

A pounding heart and sweating can be caused by sleep paralysis. See Sleep paralysis

Sweating and trembling often occur as a realise of unconscious emotions arise when reliving a traumatic experience. They also can occur as a person gets near to the hugeness they carry within them. See Reaction to the unconscious

But sweating is a natural process of regulation and is a way of losing excess heat in the body. Bad smelling perspiration is a sign of an unhealthy body. Somebody recently told me that they sweat enormously when it is reasonably hot, and said it was showing a good system. But people complain when the weather turns warm and also when it is cold. It doesn’t mean their system is working well, but it shows their body does not adjust to changes of temperature. I know of a man who doesn’t have to add great amounts of clothes in the cold weather and is not feeling uncomfortable and sweaty in summer.

Analyses of thousands of hair, blood and sweat samples of people in Britain by Dr Stephen Davies, of the Biolab Medical Unit in London, has clearly shown that toxic elements accumulates with age. Simultaneously, levels of essential elements decline, leading him to conclude that our overexposure to toxic elements and under consumption of essential elements has exceeded the human body’s capacity to adapt and successfully detoxify. The lack of sufficient essential elements makes lead, cadmium, mercury and aluminium even more toxic. The combination of these factors is no doubt lowering our overall intellectual performance and emotional stability. Taking vitamin C can detoxify Lead; zinc counteracts cadmium; selenium counteracts mercury.

 Example: One woman dreamt the same dream from childhood. She was walking past railings in the town she lived in as a child. She always woke in dread and perspiration from this dream. At forty she told her sister about it. The response was, ‘Oh, that’s simple. Don’t you remember that when you were about four we were walking past those railings and we were set on by a bunch of boys. Then I said to them, ‘Don’t hurt us our mother’s dead!’ They left us alone, but you should have seen the look on your face.’ After realising the dread was connected with the imagined loss of her mother, the dream never recurred.

Idioms: break a sweat; don’t sweat it; in a cold sweat; no sweat; sweat blood; sweat bullets; sweat of ones brow; old sweat; sweat it out; work up a sweat.
