Clinically, it orients attention to ideals, to whatever may be deeply important to a client. Clients who may not consider themselves “spiritual” often hold certain ideals or values they care about deeply or that seem ultimate, such as a client of mine (Steve) who was an atheist but described being moved to a sense of awe and profound respect for the processes of evolution. Shults and Sandage (2006; Sandage & Shults, 2007) adapted the definition of spirituality offered by Hill et al. (2000) to fit a relational theoretical orientation by defining relational spirituality as “ways of relating to the sacred” (Shults & Sandage, 2006, p.
Stress Responses Challenges and threats activate stress response systems—involving an immediate release of the parasympathetic vagal brake and subsequent activation of the sympathetic nervous system through direct means and through release of hormones along the hypothalamus–pituitary–adrenal axis. Emotions such as fear and anger focus one’s attention on relief from danger but unfocus one’s cortical problem solving and rational thinking. The emotions narrow attention to the immediate freeze–flight–fight behaviors.
This overall hypothesis was supported by neurobiological, hormonal, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral evidence (see Worthington, 2006, Chapter 4). A metaphor used to explain emotional replacement was chemical titration, in which negative acid (representing unforgiveness) is titrated by dropping in a positive-pH base, bringing the pH back to neutral. Note, of course, that this is a metaphor and is not a literal explanation of what happens neurochemically. In some cases, rather than replace negative emotions by positive, the positive is built alongside of the negative and ambivalence is experienced.
