What is the "fight or flight response?"
This fundamental physiologic response forms the foundation of modern day stress medicine. The "fight or flight response" is our body's primitive, automatic, inborn response that prepares the body to "fight" or "flee" from perceived attack, harm or threat to our survival.
What happens to us when we are under excessive stress?
When we experience excessive stress—whether from internal worry or external circumstance—a bodily reaction is triggered, called the "fight or flight" response. Originally discovered by the great Harvard physiologist Walter Cannon, this response is hard-wired into our brains and represents a genetic wisdom designed to protect us from bodily harm. This response actually corresponds to an area of our brain called the hypothalamus, which—when stimulated—initiates a sequence of nerve cell firing and chemical release that prepares our body for running or fighting.www.thebodysoulconnection.com...
'Fight or flight' receptor revealed
The 'fight or flight' hormone adrenaline — which is produced during times of stress — is an agonist of the β2-adrenergic receptor (β2AR), a G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) that mediates multiple downstream effects, including pupil dilation, blood vessel constriction and increased pulse rate. Three-dimensional structures of GPCRs are difficult to obtain because hydrophobic surfaces in the transmembrane (TM) domains and GPCR flexibility (caused by multiple conformational states that vary according to agonist binding) prevent the molecular contacts that enable protein crystallization.www.nature.com...
When the third chakra is balanced it brings the capacity to accomplish that which we want and allows us to relax and enjoy these accomplishments. We are able to successfully wield our own power and will which attracts prosperity and balance in turn allowing us to feel safe and secure. We are more disciplined and better able to organise, able to deal with changes and see that they lead to new and better things. Life seems better and we are able to concentrate on learning. A lack of balance in the third chakra may be due to a lack of balance in the first two Chakras. If this chakra is not working properly it is inclined to create negative influences in the physical this can be seen in the form of ulcers, digestive problems or liver and pancreas complaints, it can lead to anger and frustration, as well as problems dealing with power and authority. Anger is the product of to much self-power, everything feels like an up hill struggle which is full of conflicts. Frustration is the product of to little self-power everything feels to demanding and others place too many demands on us. Being aware of an imbalance of the third chakra is very important because it highlights our understanding of our own inner workings. This allows us to look within and reclaim the balance, our own power, allowing us to move forward with self-confidence.

So, there is a certain person who when i am around them it kind of like, empties my stomac so to speak. It kind of like, turns my solar plexus in a way. I pretty much have an understanding over what type of energy that my solar plexus has on me, what i am curious about is what does that mean about the person i am around when this is happening? It kind of initiates a feeling of discomfort that i become aware of, almost like a fear. The thing is when i become aware of it i am able to separate it from myself. I would like to further understand what is happening in this dynamic and maybe what kind of information i can be picking up from this.
