Smile! Your Symptoms are Healthy! (part 3 of 3)

(cont from part 2)...

The more adept you become at understanding the body's natural healing response, the more you are going to avoid panicking or seeking out medical help which may be unnecessary, or even prevent the body completing its natural self-healing cycle.

Examples of Healing Responses

I've lost count of the number of very real healing responses I've had, but I'll share a few so you can see what can happen. It will also help you to understand the connection between underlying emotional causes and how old emotional pain manifests as physical symptoms.

Back Pain Healing Response

Even though I know that almost any physical pain I experience has an emotional cause or undertone, sometimes it's useful and necessary to get physical help. One day I was experiencing a sore left knee, and took myself to my cranio-sacral osteopath for a treatment. Even though I knew she had done good work, the next day I woke up in agony, barely able to walk. My left hip was very sore and...

Smile! Your Symptoms are Healthy! (part 2 of 3)

(cont from part 1)...

Many people are unaware that when they have symptoms, their body may be in a natural 'healing response' or 'regeneration' cycle. They think something is going wrong when actually something is going right. If you know how to recognize a healing response (by cross-checking the list in part 1) you can hold it as a possibility it may be one. If it truly is one, you must then do the following:

How can you tell if you are in a healing response or not?

One of the things which can catch us out when we are experiencing a healing response is that we don't recognize when we are in it! We have been so conditioned to think that symptoms are 'bad' and that 'something must be going wrong' that we immediately jump to the conclusion that we are getting sick or worse.

Jumping to conclusions without complete information is a natural human tendency which we have to learn to monitor, because it can often lead us astray. (This goes for any area of our life!).

In order to know...

Smile! Your Symptoms are Healthy! (part 1 of 3)

Every cell, tissue and organ in your body have both a physical and 'meta-physical' physical function. Meta means 'beyond' so metaphysical means 'beyond physical'. This means every cell, tissue and organ also have an emotional function: they have to store, manage and process your emotions!

Let's be honest, whose mind hasn't gone to fearful, worst-case-scenario thoughts such as 'maybe it's cancer' or 'maybe I'm dying' when experiencing severe or  inexplicable symptoms?

One of the most useful concepts to understand in health is the HEALING 'RESPONSE' or HEALING 'REACTION' and how to handle it.

Not understanding this phenomenon can trip you up, and even have you rushing unnecessarily to the doctor or emergency room. 

In particular understanding what I am about to share will take away a lot of FEAR AND WORRY you may have around being ill. 

So listen up, this information could be a game-changer!

Understanding and managing the healing response

healing response Feb 13, 2019

What most people are unaware of is that every cell, tissue and organ has a 'beyond' physical function which we can call 'metaphysical'. Meta means 'beyond' - metaphysical means 'beyond physical'. Simply put, every cell, tissue and organ has an emotional function: they have to store, manage and process our emotions!

Stop the Mind Torture! Be Here Now!

The past is history

The future is a mystery

Today is a gift

Which is why it's called the present

"People often feel there is ‘something missing’ in their life. What is missing is attention and alignment with the present moment” Eckhardt Tolle

The Future

A very common mind habit which people have is to WORRY and worst-case-scenario-think (WCST) - to constantly expect the worst to happen.
 
Worry is mentally rehearsing what you don't want to happen. It is an extremely unhealthy and non-beneficial mind habit, because it doesn't bring inner peace, harmony or resolution. 

The Past

Many people also dwell a lot in the past in their mind. If they are continually focusing on unhappy past events, and how they were 'wronged' or were 'right', this will cause much inner grief, anger and resentment.
 
They re-hash past events, wishing the events had gone differently and achieved a different outcome... how the outcome SHOULD have been different.

7 Types of Tiredness which cause Chronic Fatigue, ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) and Burnout

There can be much misunderstanding and confusion over the real meaning behind symptoms of ‘chronic fatigue’, and what actually causes various kinds and types of debilitating exhaustion.

There can also be much confusion over the difference between the labels of ‘ME’ (myalgic encephalomyelitis), ‘chronic fatigue syndrome’ (CFS), ‘post viral fatigue’, burnout, ‘adrenal fatigue’ and more, all conditions which leave one with the experience of overwhelming and seemingly inexplicable tiredness.

So I hope this blog will go a way to explaining the differences.

What I am about to share comes from 20 years of research into this topic, as a result of my own personal experience of adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue syndrome and burnout, plus working with hundreds of clients since 2006 with these conditions.

Before we get into the 7 unhealthy types of fatigue, we must first look at what normal healthy tiredness is…

Why am I tired of people being asleep?

"I want you to wake up so I can take a walk" - Gangaji, self-realized spiritual teacher

Warning! This post could trigger some indignant responses, especially if you are metaphorically 'asleep'. That's OK: some people won't like it and some people will love it! This post is for those who are ready to hear the usefulness in what I have to share, because it's truly meant to be a helpful 'wake up' call to help you solve your problems, because I WANT you to be happy and well : )

First of all, I'm going to have to share some definitions here in order for the title (and content) of this post to even make sense...

When I refer to 'being asleep' I am not talking literally as in lying in bed asleep! I certainly don't have a problem with that! Sleep is good and essential.

I'm using this term in the sense of asleep being 'unaware'.

Unaware of what?

Of many things, but primarily of oneself and greater truths about life which one has not yet 'woken up to'.

I was asleep like this for...

Do we need a pill for loneliness?

depression loneliness Jan 29, 2019

Today I read in the Guardian that scientists are researching a pill for loneliness***.

So here are my two cents worth on why this is not likely to provide the fundamental 'cure'.

Having experienced much deep loneliness over much of my life, I can speak personally as to the devastating effects of what it's like to be and feel alone.

It affects every layer of our being: mind, emotions, physical and spiritual. 

Research has shown that loneliness can impair health*, for example one research project showing it raises levels of stress hormones and inflammation, which in turn can increase the risk of heart disease, arthritis, Type 2 diabetes, dementia and even suicide attempts.

From years of personal introspection on how to manage and deal with feeling alone and disconnected from other human beings, I have drawn two major conclusions:

1. THE IMPORTANCE OF KNOWING HOW TO MANAGE THE FEELINGS OURSELVES

If we know how to deal with the feelings of loneliness, which one...

How to tell if you're in an abusive relationship

Every time I was shouted at, criticized or berated, I would feel terrible inside. I felt hurt, frustrated, hopeless and powerless. It felt awful. And a part of me kept saying 'this just isn't right. Surely it can't be right to be treated this way'?
I don't share this story very often because it's not the sort of thing one talks about with strangers, or even friends.
 
I'm sure you know what I mean if you're currently in the same situation.
 
Fortunately I'm not anymore, but I was for many months, and it nearly ruined my life. And then once I came through it, it became one of the biggest life lessons I ever had, and for which I am now truly grateful.

You see, I was in a toxic, abusive, dysfunctional, unhealthy relationship.

On a daily basis I would be put down, criticized, bullied and belittled.
 
I was so stressed and anxious all the time I barely had one or two hours sleep a night.
 
I walked on eggshells all the time, afraid to open my...

The Unseen and Painful Consequences of Being Bullied

bullying Jan 27, 2019
"People bully others, or tolerate being bullied by others, in an unconscious effort to protect themselves, either emotionally or physically, or both". 

Bullying and unfair treatment can appear in many shapes and forms, in all walks of life.

It can (and does) happen at school, university... in the workplace... on holiday... at home.

So why is it people become bullies?

And why is it we tolerate unacceptable or unfair treatment?

And more importantly, how do we put a stop to either of these things?

These are all questions we need to ask if we find our self either a ‘victim’, 'rescuer' or ‘persecutor’ on the 'unfair treatment' spectrum.

The underlying reasons for becoming a victim, rescuer or perpetrator is the same: to protect ourselves from feeling the emotional pain we have hidden inside. To protect ourselves from ‘feeling bad, not good enough, rejected or unworthy’ and more.

Bullying - A Serious Issue
