DR. CANDICE PERT and WHAT THE BLEEP

Leave a comment

I want to share a quote of  Dr. Candice Pert [link here] from the film What the Bleep do We Know [link here]. It has helped me to review many of my decisions and situations in my life. Consider seeing this film if you have not seen it in awhile, or at all. Netflix or library rental. I think you can still buy a copy.

“We are bombarded by huge amounts of information, and its coming into our body. And we  are processing it, coming in through our sense organs. It’s percolating up and up. And at each step we are eliminating information. And finally, what’s bubbling up to consciousness is the one that is most self serving.” Dr. Canice Pert, What the Bleep Do We Know.

Postscript 10/2013: Rereading this a couple of years later, the above quote still rings very true. Rather frightening when applied to the world situation as reported by the media. I am assuming some of that is true!

This is a concept that I consider when I receive emails from people selling products that have a big fear charge around them concerning the fate of the planet. What seems obvious to me is not obvious to others. Quite often I have to remind myself of the power of fear and its effect on [our] my senses.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
