DO I SEE MY BODY AS A TOXIC MESS?
At times, yes. That feeling has truly delayed my physical, emotional and spiritual healing. I come to see that, in the past, the health practitioners I have been generally attracted to are extreme in their views and approaches. How so? Well, some practitioners see the body the way they see the world: a toxic place that we need protection from. It is easy to understand why. How we consciously or unconsciously see the world is reinforced by what we listen to, watch read. Most notably are our biological and environmental histories that deeply effect our patterns of thinking developed in childhood and over the years.
THE WAR AGAINST DISEASE: ARE YOU READY?
I know, first hand, the difference between using drugs and surgery vs herbs, superfoods, vitamins diet, bodywork, colonics, etcetera. However, the point of view of these two worlds has some commonality. The shared opinion, by many health care providers and the public, is that disease is a battle that needs to be fought.
WHAT CREATES OUR REALITY?
Many people who are active in the Alternative-Holistic healing communities profess, or at least dabble with the idea, that our thoughts greatly impact our lives. However, when it comes to the condition of the environment and the health of our citizens, their take is pretty negative. Some would argue realistic. I am here to question what I see and how I see it.
Some things just seem so apparent to me; global warming, air pollution, the sewage laden condition of our waterways and oceans. Deep in my gut and heart, it all feels overwhelming. My feeling of overwhelm and despair is paralyzing and clouds what and how I see the world. Facing my feeling of overwhelm has been one of the primary emotions I need to heal. It is not an energizing mindset. Approaching life with a consciously positive attitude is not easy, but being pessimistic is a drain.
HOW CAN YOU NOT SEE IT?
More and more aware of my perspective I recognize my conscious and unconscious beliefs and mental conditioning. I notice this wherever I go. I very often focus on people that do not generally look well to me. Trash on the roadsides and dirty cities often provide great fodder for feeding my negativity. Could it be that it is not what I am seeing but how I am seeing it that is the real issue? I feel this is true.
WHAT TO DO?
Reprogramming the neural pathways of the brain is one of the processes I am utilizing. Here are some things that I use to consciously explore the world around and within me:
What The Bleep [link here] is a film that proves and disputes many practical and scientific theories. You can buy the theater length and extended version on the website link.
Dr. Joe Dispenza [link here] is featured in WTB. HIs very informative and entertaining video entitled “Evolve Your Brain”. His talk expands on the principles of Quantum Physics. This entails re-patterning our neural pathways to create change in how we perceive ourselves and the world around us.
EFT Tapping expert Stacey Vornbrock [link here] has developed tapping protocols based on her study with Dispenza. These tapping sequences are extremely effective when repeated daily to interrupt unwanted behavior patterns.
The Tapping Solution [link here] is a website providing information about The Emotional Freedom Technique. EFT is a great guided or self help therapy technique. EFT UNIVERSE [link here] has facts and research info about EFT.
Rebirthing [link here] is a therapy that helps heal our physical and emotional body through the breath. Peace Arnold brings love, light, compassion and humor to her work with individuals and groups. I highly recommend this healing therapy.
Colon Therapy is one way to begin to detoxify the body, clear the brain and lighten the spirit. Home units are available. Initially, getting a series from a Colon Therapist is the best. Home Colonic Units available at Dancing Cells [link here].
Laugh. Do not underestimate the power of joy and humor.
DECLARING WAR ON THE BODY
Within the Raw Food Community cleansing is the major alternative to going the Allopathic Medical route. The raw diet is cleansing, but what is absorbing all the toxins being unearthed? The Allopathic protocol is largely about masking symptoms with prescriptive medicine. Their next point of action is, or leads to, surgery, chemo, radiation, etcetera.
Many of the loudest voices in the Raw Food Community are men. Their approach is warrior – super hero [Vitalis and Wolfe] and most of their followers are women.
I have done many cleanses, colonics, dietary regimes. I am grateful for the information I have learned form these men. However, most of the cleansing and diets have some strong similarities to the philosophy of allopathic medicine. The body is a battle ground and we all need to “man up” and “go to war”.
From Macrobiotics to the Raw Food Community I often observed practitioners and clients ending up returning to Allopathic Treatment. I am sure I have found an answer in healing my GI Tract. Please visit Unique Healing Donna Pessin. Within her program lies, what I believe, one answer to healing the digestive system and entire body. It is not a magic bullet by any means!
Is Allopathic treatment wrong? It can be a life saver in an emergency. For long term illness it can be a crutch. I would not rely on it for the long haul. This is especially true if you want to live vibrantly as years go on.
