In The article called “Hacking the Nervous System” by Gaia Vince (http://mosaicscience.com/story/hacking-nervous-system) the author describes the experience of a woman who suffered from severe, debilitating rheumatoid arthritis and her eventual treatment with a device which minimized inflammation by simply stimulating the vagus nerve. What this means, is that by activating the vagus nerve which works through the parasympathetic nervous system, we can greatly influence inflammation and the immune system. The role of the brain on body inflammation can be profound. If you suffer from digestive complaints, high blood pressure, depression or any inflammatory condition, please read on. Let me explain the possible implications step by step.
Research results on the electrophysiology of intuition show that sometimes if a future event is emotionally relevant, the heart can produce a signal that alerts you before the event takes place.
This high speed intuitive intelligence reacts faster than the mind can perceive and bypass standard thought processes. There are 3 types of intuition:
As much as fear is a result of reacting to the actual or perceived events in our lives, it is also a biological function of the human body, and when equipped with an understanding of how the body manages the emotional system, we can easily outsmart it, tricking ourselves into emotional balance.
This perspective is scientifically validated by new research from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago Illinois, which discovered how the various rhythmic patterns of breath profoundly impact memory recall and the emotional body, specifically the fear response.
The brain creates electrical impulses which link physical functions to emotional reactions, and the electrical activity of the brain is deeply affected by our breathing patterns. The outcome of this balance is determined by whether or not we are inhaling or exhaling, as well as if we are breathing through the nose or the mouth, as each variable creates a different electrical response within the brain.
In the Northwestern study, participants were shown images of human expressions, some frightful, while engaging in various patterns of breathing. Researchers observed that people more easily process fear, and more readily recall images, while inhaling through the nose.
“One of the major findings in this study is that there is a dramatic difference in brain activity in the amygdala and hippocampus during inhalation compared with exhalation. When you breathe in, we discovered you are stimulating neurons in the olfactory cortex, amygdala and hippocampus, all across the limbic system.” ~Christina Zelano, assistant professor of neurology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and lead author of the study
The amygdala is decisively liked to the processing of emotions, especially those related to fear, while the hippocampus is strongly linked to memory recall, and the breath, which originates with the diaphragm, plays the critical role of regulating their function.
“Breathing is modulated at the diaphragm, and it is also the location where many physical symptoms associated with fear and anxiety manifest.“ ~Brett Wilbanks
The differences in brain activity which occur during unique breathing rhythms were recognized by looking at brain activity during the introduction of fearful or surprising human faces, finding distinctively heightened activity during inhaling. Knowing this can be highly advantageous when you realize that your fear reaction is working overtime.
“We can potentially use this fact to our advantage. For example if you’re in a dangerous environment with fearful stimuli, our date indicate that you can respond more quickly if you are inhaling through your nose.” ~Christina Zelano
Furthermore, this further validates the importance of meditation, which commonly centers of developing control of the breath in order to quiet the mind and normalize physiological function in the body. The long-term results of a dedicated meditation practice include more stable and optimal emotional reactions to the world around us, indicating again that breathing is a critical component of living a fearless life.
Who are you really? An amazing lecture given by Alan Watts a British philosopher, writer, and speaker. Speech extract from "Does it do you, or do you do it" by Alan Watts, courtesy of alanwatts.org
"Neuroscience has discovered that our brain’s very design makes it sociable, inexorably drawn into an intimate brain-to-brain linkup whenever we engage with another person. That neural bridge lets us impact the brain—and so the body—of everyone we interact with, just as they do us.
Even our most routine encounters act as regulators in the brain, priming emotions in us, some desirable, others not. The more strongly connected we are with someone emotionally, the greater the mutual force. The most potent exchanges occur with those people with whom we spend the greatest amount of time day in and day out, year after year—particularly those we care about the most.
During these neural linkups, our brains engage in an emotional tango, a dance of feelings. Our social interactions operate as modulators, something like interpersonal thermostats that continually reset key aspects of our brain function as they orchestrate our emotions.
The resulting feelings have far-reaching consequences, in turn rippling throughout our body, sending out cascades of hormones that regulate biological systems from our heart to immune cells. Perhaps most astonishing, science now tracks connections between the most stressful relationships and the very operation of specific genes that regulate the immune system.
To a surprising extent, then, our relationships mold not just our experience, but our biology. The brain-to-brain link allows our strongest relationships to shape us in ways as benign as whether we laugh at the same jokes or as profound as which genes are (or are not) activated in t-cells, the immune system’s foot soldiers in the constant battle against invading bacteria and viruses.
That represents a double-edged sword: nourishing relationships have a beneficial impact on our health, while toxic ones can act like slow poison in our bodies.
Virtually all the major scientific discoveries I draw on in this volume have emerged since Emotional Intelligence appeared in 1995, and they continue to surface at a quickening pace. I intend this book to be a companion volume to Emotional Intelligence, exploring the same terrain of human life from a different vantage point, one that allows a wider swath of understanding of our personal world.
When I wrote Emotional Intelligence, my focus was on a crucial set of human capacities within an individual, the ability to manage our own emotions and our inner potential for positive relationships. Here the picture enlarges beyond a one-person psychology—those capacities an individual has within—to a two-person psychology: what transpires as we connect.
Take, for example, empathy, the sensing of another person’s feelings that allows rapport. Empathy is an individual ability, one that resides inside the person. But rapport only arises between people, as a property that emerges from their interaction. Here the spotlight shifts to those ephemeral moments that emerge as we interact. These take on deep consequence as we realize how, through their sum total, we create one another."
— From the prologue to Social Intelligence, by Daniel Goleman
I remember as a child attending many weekly Sunday church services, and began to wonder about the truth of religious stories and teachings. I remember very clear the phrase if you don’t go to church, I will burn in hell forever, or that God will punish me if I don’t take my child to church every Sunday.
My personality resented any type of ritual or “I have to do” things, just for the sake of doing it, because that is the custom, because I will be “better” “wiser” “smarter”. I just have to take things the way are giving it to me, without questions, arguments or exploring any other possibilities. As if I borne broken already or just because I existed somehow "I fall" and I have to rise doing all these things that other people are doing.
Always wonder, what if hell and heaven they don’t really exist? “Well but it says in the Bible that is true, so it has to be!” the answer will come from people, as soon as I popped with this question.
Couple of days ago, I found this book that was a delight to read("22 essays on the African American Experience, by Anthony Browder"), because of the truth that I feel in it. So I would like to share it with you:
“Many people do not and cannot accept any statements that do not confirm what they are presently believed, even if the beliefs that they presently hold to be true are based on false information and are inconsistent with reality."
Today we continue with 5 W'S from the previous post, so we can get the whole picture about hypnosis and hypnotherapy. The next 2 questions are "WHAT" & "WHEN":
2. WHAT can hypnosis be used for?
Hypnosis is a natural, yet an altered state of mind, in which the critical faculty is relaxed and selective thinking is establish. Natural, means everyone has the capacity to enter into the altered state of awareness we refer to as hypnosis. The critical faculty begins developing around age seven and it’s the gatekeeper to the subconscious mind. During hypnosis, relaxation of the critical faculty facilitates the communication between the conscious and subconscious mind. And selective thinking means I am focusing, without effort (means I choose to do so) – upon an idea.
Therefore, hypnosis can be used to return to healthy balance of mind, body and spirit. Hypnotherapy helps the clients to free themselves from the subconsciously limiting beliefs that are reflected in self defeating thoughts and emotions that slow healing and generate pain. It brings light to the dark thoughts held by the mind that are often the ultimate reason for disease.
The following are just a few of the applications for hypnosis or hypnotherapy that have been demonstrated with research:
3. WHEN should I use self-hypnosis/ go to a hypnotherapist?
Most of the people go to hypnotherapy when someone recommend this to them or because they want a past life regression. A lot of people associates hypnosis with going back in time and find out who they were in another life time, just for fun. Although the past life regression is a technique we use to recover the resource that you had in another life time and activated now, in the present time. I believe it’s our job as hypnotherapist to educate people to know how and when they can go to a hypnotherapist.
Person with an ailment or any kind of physical complaint for that matter, are to see their physician first, for medical treatment and make use of hypnosis and hypnotherapy as an adjunct to medical treatment, second.
Hypnosis session can be done in person but also via Skype. Me personally, I do not work heavy duty issues via Skype. There are certain times where you need to physically be next to your client, some of them need your physical presence in order to create a strong rapport. This is something that can be established in the first 20 min free consultation that I usually do when I have a new client.
Some of the common possibilities when a person, can use self hypnosis or go to a hypnotherapist are:
The Five Ws, the 5W1H, or the Six Ws are questions whose answers are considered basic in information-gathering or problem-solving. They constitute a formula for getting the complete story on a subject. So let’s apply these questions today to get the whole picture about hypnosis and hypnotherapy, from my point of view and experience.
Today will respond the first question: WHO?
1. WHO can be hypnotized?
Everyone enters altered states naturally in the course of their everyday activities. What is an altered state? Any time your awareness wanders away from the analytical, reasoning mind you are entering what is called an altered state. For example when you take a nap your brain wave activity changes from beta to alpha wave function, at which point you are in an altered state. Daydreaming is another example of a naturally occurring altered state. While daydreaming you use your imagination and emotions to create an event or something that you desire and so that body begins to react as if the event was real, causing you to enter into a light hypnotic state. Focused attention naturally alters your state of consciousness. When you focused on a project or when you watch your favorite movie, you stop paying attention to other external stimulus, and any noises like telephone ringing or human voices do not distract you, it is likely you are in a light hypnotic trance.
Understanding that the altered state (hypnosis) is naturally occurring and knowing the characteristics of this process creates success in inducing hypnosis.
Educating the client before a session, creating rapport with them, gaining their confidence, exciting the imagination by explaining what is possible for them through using their inner resources and help them create positive expectations and then refocused their attention, by distracting the client from whatever could distract them from entering hypnosis, all of this makes everyone capable to enter a hypnotic state.
Theoretically this is true, but there may be psychological reasons that someone is resistant to being hypnotized which might make it very difficult for that person to relax enough the gatekeeper of subconscious mind to enter a hypnotic state. This resistance can be overcome by creating a very strong rapport with the client, so he/she can trust you enough to let go of the resistance.
Usually people who are certain that they can’t be hypnotized have a deep need for control and think that if they allow themselves to be hypnotized they will be giving up control. This is a paradox, because during hypnosis the only one who has the control is actually the client.
Our bodies are intelligently designed to co-exist as a part of nature. So just by taking time to take a deep breath, drink alkaline water, absorb the ultraviolet light from the sun, walking barefoot, you are connecting to the Earth.
Before almost all ceremonies, native people establish a certain vibration within their bodies and their spirits. And that it is just connecting with love with Mother Earth and Father Sun. This simple habit is very powerful. First, it will allow you to find your way within and find the Sacred Space of the Heart. (something that we attained during the Awakening the Illuminated Heart Workshop – see details.) Second, it will allow you to get grounded.
Grounding is the process of removing the excess charge on an object by means of the transfer of electrons between it and another object of substantial size. When a charged object is grounded, the excess charge is balanced by the transfer of electrons between the charged object and a ground.
Our bodies come into contact with the Earth on a regular basis. Positive electrons in the form of free radicals can build up in our bodies and direct contact with the ground balances this out as it is a negative grounding charge. The human body and the cells have electrical energy, and especially with the high prevalence of Electromagnetic waves, Wi-Fi and mobile phone waves, many of us have a high amount of positive electrons built up in our bodies.
The easiest way to be grounded is to walk barefoot on some grass or earth, or to immerse your self in a body of conductive water such as the sea or a mineral-rich lake.
The most immediately noticeable effect people report from being grounded is that they ‘feel better’. This has been described as a feeling of greater peace within themselves, feeling calmer with reduced stress levels. If there is pain present then often this is reduced or disappears completely.
One of the primary health benefits of grounding is its antioxidant effect. It helps alleviate inflammation throughout your body. This fact it’s supported and backed by prominent medical doctors, scientists, but also, it was used by ancient civilizations that placed strong value on their relationship to the Earth.
The surface of the Earth holds subtle health-boosting energy. All we have to do is touch it and become truly alive. It’s sufficient to maintain your body at the same negatively charged electrical potential as the Earth and so grounding can become one of the most potent antioxidants we know of.
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF GROUNDING?
With regular grounding, numerous health benefits have been observed, such as:
Grounding is the perfect remedy for anyone who is feeling stressed, triggered, regressed, rushed, overworked, confused, overwhelmed, panicked, angry, clumsy or drained.
To ground yourself means not only to help the physical aspect of your being, but also helps your consciousness. Our emotions are nothing but energy in motion and when you do not release that excess of emotions, the body will absorb that excess and store it in the muscles or in the organs. So by removing that energy charge in your body, releases also the emotions stored in the body and the thoughts associated with those emotions. Because everything comes in packages: sensations (body) – emotions – thoughts are linked with each other. Grounding yourself, though different methods will help the emotional, the mental and the physical body.
When we are focus in the present - meaning I am totally in the body, aware of my emotions and thoughts - we connect with the frequency of the earth itself. We allow the energy to move through our body. Grounding can become the ability to control psychic energies that flow through you, an ability that allows you to remain present here and now, without wondering away with your thoughts, or your inner energies.
Conscious energy work means you are conscious of the energies you manipulate. You release energies from your body, energies that aren’t needed anymore. You can do this just by intending to do so. Energy follow thoughts, so just think about releasing energies.
HOW DO I GET GROUNDED?
1. Walk barefoot on the earth. Go out there! Be in the Nature! Feel the Sun on your skin! The Earth maintains a negative electrical potential on its surface. When you are in direct contact with the ground (walking, sitting, or laying down on the earth's surface) the earth's electrons are conducted to your body, bringing it to the same electrical potential as the earth.
Throughout history, humans have walked barefoot on the ground, which naturally discharges and prevents the buildup of electrical stress within the body. Also, your immune system functions optimally when your body has an adequate supply of electrons, which are easily and naturally obtained by barefoot contact with the Earth.
2. Living in the now. A quick method of bringing your focus in the present is to start scanning your body from head to toe.
Start a body scan by focusing on the sensations in your body. Start with your feet. Notice the soles of your feet, your toes, in-between your toes, the top of your feet, ankles, and heels. Does it feel hot or cold? Do they hurt? Are they numb or swollen? Can you feel the blood circulating through them? Are they feeling tired? Don't judge how they feel, simply notice how they feel. Wiggle your toes. How does that feel? For me it always brings a smile to my face. Once you have a made a strong connection with your feet move your attention upwards past your ankle, switching all your focus from your feet to your lower legs, then move onto your knee caps, the backside of your knees, your thighs, and so on all the way up through your body without rushing. Then, begin listing things that you see in the room. Be where you are physically. Pick up objects in the room and notice the way they feel in your hands. Now be aware of your emotions while you are doing this. Once you notice the emotion, be aware of your thoughts. What are you thinking right this moment, while you have this sensation in the body and this emotion?
3. Eat root vegetables. Anything that grows underneath the surface of the earth will connect you with the frequency of the earth and thus, will have a grounding effect. Some examples of grounding foods are: potatoes, turnips, carrots, beets, sweet potatoes and radishes.
4. Use grounding stones. When we share space with a mineral, our frequency must entrain with the frequency of that particular mineral. If a crystal, gemstone or other mineral holds a frequency that is grounding, keeping it near you (in your pocket or hand or worn as a necklace etc.) will help you to ground your energy. (for example: hematite, smoky quartz, obsidian, red coral, onyx, black tourmaline, ruby, garnet, pyrite, tiger iron and black opal)
5. Use your senses. Use grounding scents. Whatever you feel is right for you. Just ask your body and trust your gut! No one knows better than yourself! Color to ground yourself. Colors offer powerful vibrations. Use sound to stimulate your root chakra. Certain crystal bowls, metal bowls and alchemy bowls have been designed so that the sound that they emit stimulates and balances your root chakra, which grounds you. But toning with your own voice is perhaps the most beneficial. When you hum deep, low notes you will notice that they vibrate in the pelvis. Start by humming a high tone and pay attention to the sensation you feel in your body (it may be like a buzzing). Try to use the tone to direct that sensation down in your body. Direct it between your legs or to the base of the spine.
6. Do grounding visualizations and imagery. One of the easiest and powerful imagery is to visualize yourself as a tree. See yourself becoming a tree. See, feel and know your arms are now the biggest branches in the world. They can touch the sky and connect directly with the Source. Now visualize your energy flowing down into the center of the earth. Then visualize your feet become these huge roots growing deep into the ground and then visualize pulling the energy of the earth up through those roots and especially up through your root chakra, which is located just in front of the base of the tailbone. Now focus on pulling that energy up through your entire body, going through every cell of your body, every organ and muscle. In the same time see, feel and sense the unwanted energy or whatever you want to release moving down to the ground. It’s like a circuit. Something goes away, you have to fill that void.
7. Hugging a tree. Trees are grounded, as well. All you have to do is to hug a tree, and intend to release the unwanted energies. The tree will do the rest. Often, this method is mixed with charging yourself with positive energies, as trees do work as big energy antennas.
8. Enjoy your hobby – Doing what you love can help you ease your mind, being present and focus. Some people play computer games; others play golf; other cooks, or just taking a walk or hiking.
9. Practice meditation. Do it before getting your day going, and try it again before retiring for the evening. A regular grounded meditation practice can actually help you to sleep better at night, which is crucial to your healing. Your body needs this time to rejuvenate, as does your spirit.
10. Move your body. Breath, stretch, walk, jog, jump rope, walk a dog, skip, roller blade, bike, hike, garden, do yoga, go to the gym, run, swim, dance… but get up and do something. Your body needs to move and stretch. Exercise helps you ground.
11. Using Earthing mats. You can Google “”Earthing” company that developed tools , such as mats, sheets for the bed, that reconnect you to the Earth.
12. Using HeartMath tools. This is something that we get to learn during the Awakening the Illuminated Heart Workshop or through my private sessions. Changes in the earth’s magnetic field have been shown to affect human heart rhythms and have been associated with the following: changes in brain and nervous-system activity; athletic performance, memory and other tasks; synthesis of nutrients in plants and algae; the number of reported traffic violations and accidents; mortality from heart attacks and strokes; and incidence of depression and suicide.
According to Global Coherence Research from HeartMath, “Earth has a strong internal magnetic field that appears to be generated by electrical currents in the liquid outer iron core that are driven by internal heat sources. The magnetic field resembles that of a bar magnet or “dipole field” with an axis tilted about 11.5 degrees from the spin axis, so, the magnetic poles are not the same as the geographic poles. Earth’s magnetic field strength was first measured by Carl Friedrich Gauss in 1835 and has been measured repeatedly since then. The field has shown a relative decay of about 10% over the last 150 years. The locations of the magnetic poles are not static; they wander as much as 55 kilometers every year. The geomagnetic field is influenced by the sun and moon’s rotations, solar flares and probably interplanetary influences. Animals, including birds, can detect Earth’s magnetic field and use it to navigate during migration. It has been shown, for example, that cows and deer, when grazing, tend to align their bodies north-south in response to the earth’s magnetic field.”
Emoțiile și sentimentul general de boală sau de bunăstare se resimt și sunt exprimate în corpul vostru . Sentimentul de boala sau de bunastare este o evaluare pur subiectivă . Adesea se referă la starea emoțională generală . Emoțiile de fericire, bucurie, furie, tristețe sau durere – le puteți simți fizic, puteti vorbii despre sau le puteti manifesta. Te simti fericit, atunci când râzi sau zâmbesti . Furia este simțita ca tensiune musculara, ca un ghem în intestine, sau chiar o creștere a temperaturii corpului . Lacrimile redau expresia fizică a tristetii , bucuriei sau durerii.
Emotions and your overall sense of illness or well being are felt and expressed in your body. Your general feeling of illness or wellness is a purely subjective evaluation which you make for yourself. Often it relates to your general emotional state. You can physically feel, as well as speak of or act out, the emotions of happiness, joy, anger, sadness or grief. You feel happiness when you laugh or smile. Anger is felt as muscle tension, a churning in the gut, or even a rise in body temperature. Tears give physical expression to sadness, joy or grief.
Dr. Wallace C. Ellerbroek was a prominent California surgeon, psychiatrist and psycholinguist. After years of informal research and a formal research project using acne patients, he realized that “disease arise not so much out of what happens to us but as a results of how we see things, and the things we tell ourselves.”
“It isn’t what happens that bugs you, it’s the things that you say in your head about what happened that makes all the machinery get messed up and leads to varieties of diseases.”
Here is how he explained the relationship between the body and the way we see things in our life:
“We humans create mental pictures of what we observe in the external world, our version of reality. This evaluation of reality is often inaccurate, due to limitations of our sensory organs and inadequate mechanism for verifying our perceptions. At any given moment we have a personal idea of how we think the past, present and future should be. Reality can be seen as the way we want it to be, the way we think it really is or the way it actually is.
When our world seems to match our picture of how we think it should be, we feel good. When humans become aware that their version of reality doesn’t match their fantasy of how it should be, they often irrationally and unconsciously demand that reality be changed to match their fantasy. The failure of reality to alter itself to match their fantasy can lead to depression and frustration, the emotions that are the core of illness. ”
Your language affects your body both positively and negatively. When you think about situations that makes you angry, your blood pressure can rise. Some people get red in the face. Often the heart beats faster and the jaws clench. These physical reactions are caused by thoughts which trigger emotions and vice versa. Emotions trigger more thoughts as you give meaning to what you feel. This vicious self – reinforcing cycle, if it becomes a habit, will eventually bring itself to your attention as physical symptoms.
The human body is a network of billions of interconnected cells, each in communications with others. You, as awareness, reside in that body. The body is the temple of the spirit, the house of the soul and the reflection of the mind. Each cell, through a spark of consciousness, knows how to re-create itself. The intelligence within each cell is part of your so-called unconscious mind. If these cells receive a message about a headache, for example, they can join together to create an ache in your head. In this sense, language becomes a connecting link among the cells in your body.
Milton Ward, in his book “The brilliant Function of Pain” wrote “Pain, rather than being a terror, is actually our own brilliant force, functioning in our behalf, ready to guide us through life if we are willing to listen.” Pain transmits a powerful message from body to mind. In this way it serves to communicate the way to health.
Many people are not aware of their power to make themselves sick or to heal themselves. Your initial response to the idea that you cause your own disease might be skepticism, fear, anger or dismay. Skepticism is reasonable. If your reaction is fear, anger, dismay, it might be worthwhile to examine the source of your feelings. Perhaps you feel that way because you equate responsibility with blame and shame. You may not be used to forgiving yourself for your mistakes, changing to more appropriate behavior, and then forgetting about it. Some people think they have to act perfectly and when they don’t, they punish and berate themselves with negative self talk and feelings of guilt.
We are not victims. Rather, when we forget to take responsibility for our health, we often choose unconsciously to harm ourselves. Then we feel like victims of fate.
There is a better way of thinking available. But it takes awareness and practice! You don’t have to roll over and play dead. When you choose to be responsible for your own health and well being, there is a lot you do to help yourself. The aware use of the guiding light in your mind is a powerful way to help yourself to be well.
I created this video especially for the end of the year to help you use your creative Intelligence in 2016 and take responsibility for your life.
You have 2 self –help experiences: 19 questions to inventory your common beliefs and attitudes about a variety of everyday experiences and events in order to uncover your feelings about them. The purpose of the last self-help experience in this recording is to practice being in charge of what you think about.
Enjoy and never stop to discover yourself!
Responsabilitatea și Inteligenta Creativa
Dr. Wallace C. Ellerbroek, a fost un proeminent chirurg din California, psihiatru și psycholinguist. Dupa ani de cercetare informală și un proiect de cercetare formală folosind pacienti cu acnee, el si-a dat seama că "boala nu apare atât de mult din ceea ce se întâmplă cu noi, ci ca rezultat al cum vedem lucrurile, și ceea ce ne spunem despre acele evenim/ experiente, etc .”
"Nu este ceea ce se întâmplă cu tine te deranjeaza de fapt,ci lucrurile pe care ni le spunem despre ceea ce s-a întâmplat, ceea ce face ca masinaria sa se strice și duce la tot soiuri de boli."
Iată cum a explicat relația dintre corp și modul în care vedem lucrurile din viața noastră:
"Noi, oamenii cream imagini mentale a ceea ce observăm în lumea exterioară, versiunea noastră a realității. Această evaluare a realității este de multe ori inexacta, din cauza limitărilor organelor noastre senzoriale și mecanismelor neadecvate pentru verificarea percepțiilor noastre. La un moment dat avem o idee personală legat de ceea credem despre trecut, prezent și viitor-ul, asa cum ar trebui să fie. Realitatea poate fi văzută ca modul în care doriți să fie, modul in care gandim ca este sau modul în care aceasta este de fapt.
Când lumea noastră pare a se potrivi cu imaginea noastră despre cum credem că ar trebui să fie, ne simțim bine. Când oamenii devin constienti de faptul ca versiunea lor de realitate nu se potrivește cu fantezia lor despre cum ar trebui să fie, de multe ori irațional și inconștient cer ca realitatea să fie modificata pentru a corespunde cu fantezia lor. Eșecul de a modifica realitatea pentru a se potrivi cu fantezia lor poate duce la depresie și frustrare, acele emotiile care reprezinta nucleul de boală. "
Limbajul afectează corpul dumneavoastră atât în mod pozitiv și negativ. Când te gândești la situații care te fac sa te superi, sa te enervezi, tensiunea arterială se poate ridica. De multe ori inima bate mai repede și fălcile se inclesteaza. Aceste reacții fizice sunt cauzate de gânduri care declanșează emoții și vice versa. Emoțiile declanșeaza mai multe gânduri în timp ce dai un sens la ceea ce simti. In cazul în care acest ciclu vicios devine un obicei, va aduce în cele din urmă în atenția noastra simptome fizice.
Corpul uman este o rețea de miliarde de celule interconectate, fiecare în comunicare cu celelalte. Tu, ca si constiinta,esti in corp. Corpul este templul spiritului, casa sufletului și reflectarea minții. Fiecare celulă, printr-o scânteie de conștiință, știe sa se re-creeze pe sine. Inteligența în fiecare celulă face parte din așa-numita, mintea ta inconstienta. Dacă aceste celule primesc un mesaj despre o durere de cap, de exemplu, ele se pot alătura pentru a crea o durere in capul tau. În acest sens, limbajul devine legătura între celulele din corpul tau.
Milton Ward, în cartea sa "Geniala functie a durerii", a scris "Durerea, mai degrabă decât să fie o teroare, este de fapt propria noastră forță geniala, care funcționează în numele nostru, gata să ne ghideze în viață, dacă suntem dispuși să ascultam." Durerea transmite un mesaj puternic de la corp la minte. In acest fel ea servește pentru a comunica drumul spre sănătate.
Mulți oameni nu sunt conștienți de puterea lor pentru a-si face rău sau de a se vindeca. Răspunsul inițial la ideea că ne provocam propria boală ar putea fi scepticism, frica, furie sau spaimă. Scepticismul este rezonabil. În cazul în care reacția este frica, furie, disperare, ar putea fi util sa iti examinezi sursa sentimentelor tale. Poate te simți în acest fel pentru că echivalezi responsabilitatea cu vina și rușine. Poate nu esti obisnuit sa te ierti pentru greșelile tale, sa te schimbi la un comportament mai adecvat, iar apoi uiti despre asta. Unii oameni cred că trebuie să acționeze perfect și atunci când nu o fac, se pedepsesc și se mustra cu vorbe negative și sentimente de vinovăție.
Noi nu suntem victime. Mai degrabă, atunci când uităm să ne asumăm responsabilitatea pentru sanatatea noastra, alegem de multe ori inconștient să ne facem rău. Apoi ne simtim ca victime ale destinului.
Există o modalitate mai bună de a gândi ! Dar este nevoie de conștientizare și practică! Nu trebuie să se rostogolim pe jos și să facem pe mortul. Când alegeți să fiti responsabil pentru propria sănătate și bunăstare, există o mulțime de metode de a te ajuta. Utilizarea conștientă de ghidare a luminii în mintea ta este un mod puternic de a te ajuta să iti fie bine.

“Your body believes every word you say” is a book that describes the language of the link between the mind and the body. The author – Barbara Levine, battle with a huge brain tumor, for fifteen years, and that helped her to trace common phrases like “that breaks my heart” or “it’s a pain in the butt” back to the underlying beliefs on which they are based and the symptoms they cause.
We do not realize that our language sabotages our health – physically and psychological. When we are not aware of our body, our sensations, our emotions, our feelings and the thoughts that go with that specific sensation and emotion, we are not in charge of our lives.
I put together the exercises presented in this book (which is out of print right now) after applying them with my clients in my private practice, and decided to create these videos so you can benefit from them too. The episodes are in a progressive order, so for better results I suggest you to follow them in order. You have to teach yourself and remember how it is to be self aware of your body, of your emotions, your thoughts and only then you can start reverse the negative thoughts and bring self destructive ideas from your subconscious to you conscious mind. And that is how hypnotherapy works and most of my clients succeed to reprogram their life dramatically for the better after 5- 10 sessions.
Rather than remaining passive victims, let’s take charge of our life! It takes courage, strength and most of all desire to change!
This series are called “Your body believes every word you say” and today first episode it’s called Self-Awareness. The purpose is to expand your ability to recognize thoughts on which you may have patterned your life, to learn how your memories affect you and to recognize your seedthoughts and core beliefs.
RAluca Heim, CHt
A hermit was meditating by a river when a young man interrupted him. “Master, I wish to become your disciple,” said the man.
“Why?” replied the hermit.
The young man thought for a moment.
“Because I want to find God.” The master jumped up, grabbed him by the scruff of his neck, dragged him into the river, and plunged his head under water. After holding him there for a minute, with him kicking and struggling to free himself, the master finally pulled him up out of the river. The young man coughed up water and gasped to get his breath. When he eventually quieted down, the master spoke.
“Tell me, what you wanted most of all when you were under water.” “Air!” answered the man. “Very well,” said the master.
“Go home and come back to me when you want God as much as you just wanted air.”
Just like in this story one needs to really want to be enlightened as much as he/she will want air to breath. The desire, the intention, will open up the path for you, and what your being will need to experience in order to achieve enlightenment will come forth.
Enlightenment is different for each one of us. But the desire to achieve it comes from the same thought: to know God, to know our own true nature, to be awakened. This desire/ intention it’s a deep seed in the human consciousness, and once that seed germinate it will bloom into the latent potential within us and the path to enlightenment is opened. Once you start walking on that path, there is no wrong or right path. It is what it is, and whatever experience you have it is meant to take your being closer to realization of who you are. Because ultimately we want the answer to a very important question: Who Am I? That was my question when I start on the path of enlightenment. You can start with this very simple exercise: sit in meditation, breath in, breath out, rhythmically, just observe your breath for a while, and then say to yourself “Who Am I?” continue to breath in and out rhythmically and just watch your thoughts, let them pass, and then put the question again. Continue like this for the entire meditation. Breath, put the question, observe and listen to that voice within. Do this exercise for at least 21 days. You will start feel, sense and know a deeper sense of who you truly are.
“Just as the mere name of food does not satisfy the appetite of a hungry person but he must eat food, so also a man who would learn about the Voidness (i.e. Universal Awareness) must meditate so as to realize it, not just learn of its definition.” Milarepa
You can read books about enlightenment, attend to different workshops, you can dress in white all day long, wear beads and be vegan, but that doesn’t mean you are enlighten, you actually have to meditate, do different type of exercise, put into action your thoughts and your knowledge about enlightenment, so you can feel it and know it, deep inside of you. No other soul can make you enlightened; all they can do is to be a catalyst for your awakening.
There are no short cuts to enlightenment. Enlightenment is of the moment, an opening to intelligent infinity. It can only be accomplished by the self, for the self. Another self cannot teach enlightenment, but can teach/ learn information, inspiration, sharing of love, of mystery, of the unknown that makes the other self reach out and start the seeking process.
According to RA, ( in the book “The law of One”) , all of these are just techniques. This is not the heart. Let us remember that we are all one. This is the great learning and teaching. In this unity lies love and light. This is the fundamental teaching of all planes of existence in materialization: unity, love, light and joy. Then the next level of teachings is in meditation and service. Here are 4 simple exercises that RA gives us:
Exercise 1: Realize that the moment contains love. That is the lesson for this 3rd density. Consciously see that love in awareness and in understanding distortions.
Exercise 2: The Universe is one being. When you view another, see the Creator.
Exercise 3: Gaze within a mirror. See the Creator.
Exercise 4: Gaze at the Creation, which lies about the mind/body/spirit of each entity.
See the Creator.
The foundation of these exercises is meditation, contemplation or prayer. With this attitude these exercises can be processed.
I will end with another beautiful story about enlightenment that for me says it all.
Buddha was gathered together with his disciples one morning, when a man came up to him.
‘Does God exist?’ he asked.
‘He does,’ replied Buddha.
After lunch, another man came up to him.
‘Does God exist?’ he asked.
‘No, he doesn’t,’ said Buddha.
Later that afternoon, a third man asked the same question: ‘Does God exist?’
‘That’s for you to decide,’ replied Buddha.
As soon as the man had gone, one of his disciples remarked angrily:
‘But that’s absurd, Master! How can you possibly give such different answers to the same question?’
‘Because they are all different people, and each one of them will reach God by his own path. The first man will believe what I say. The second will do everything he can to prove me wrong. The third will only believe in what he is allowed to choose for himself.’
So whatever you do in your life, do it in unity, with love and joy, so that the light inside of you shines your path to enlightenment!
Or what drives people to therapy? From my perspective, we can divide the answer into 3 major categories:
1. Pain – physical and Suffering – emotional. The greater the suffering, the easier to hypnotized/ work with. The person is really engaged to get rid of the pain/suffering; they will try anything, to move in the comfortable area. The desire is sometimes enough for the healing of that person. So “convince me you suffer enough! If so, let’s get to work!”
2. Existential frustration. This is the time when we ask ourselves the purpose of life, who I am, what am I doing here, etc. This is a great moment, when people are curios, they read, they research, and they don’t stop until they get the answers to their question. It is a driving force, which puts in motion the energy to discover who we truly are and what our mission is. The Choice theory, written by W. Glasser, states that:
· all we do is behave
· almost all behavior is chosen
· we are driven by our genes to satisfy five basic needs: survival, love and belonging, power, freedom and fun.
We all make choices according to basic needs that come from within ourselves. The needs drive our choices and influence how we behave in those choices. The most important thing, in Glasser’s vision is to choose a purpose. In order for that purpose to really work, it has to contribute to someone else life.
We need each other and I believe that the cause of almost all psychological symptoms is our inability to get along with the important people in our lives and with ourselves!
3. Psychic boredom. This person sense that they have untapped resources. Is the type of person who has everything they desired – a good job, house, car, the spouse is great, beautiful children, everything is perfect, except the fact that they feel empty inside. And they come and ask the therapist “Why do I feel empty, if I have everything?” We have these beliefs, created by society that if we have a house, a car, a spouse and children, then our life is perfect and we will feel happy. Sometimes, we waste a life time to achieve these things, and we end up feeling empty in the end, without knowing what really makes us happy. Just ask yourself, what makes you happy? When is the last time you took time, to think and feel about what makes you happy? There are 6 senses that will always give us the answers that we need. And yes, those answers are given by the person who knows you better than anyone: YOU! You feel, you see, you hear, you taste, you sense and you know what makes you happy! None of these 6 senses are better than the other one. All of them create that wholeness that you looking for.
Or sometimes, we don’t know how to name an emotion. That’s right! I met a lot of people in my practice, and when I ask them what you feel right now, they are not able to articulate what they feel. That does not mean they don’t feel, but they do not have in their vocabulary a name for that sensation, for that emotion, for that feeling and so on. And that is because nobody teaches that in school. Unless you study psychology! The society forms a model of a human being, that doesn’t need to think about his emotions, his sensations, his feelings. They only have to do things, to achieve things, to achieve success. And success means to have the perfect job, the perfect car, the greatest house with the latest technology.
What if, success means to know YOU? To know your deepest fears but also to know your strongest points. What if success means to overcome your fears and to learn to communicate with the loved ones? What if success means to learn how to speak with your child and to encourage him for this great journey called Life? What if success means how to learn to love yourself?
This is what should drive us to go to therapy! This is why we should go to therapist, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, light therapy, sound therapy, and any kind of therapy that suit the being that you are!
In joy and light, I wish you to be ready for change!
I decided to talk today about faith. I am reading Napoleon Hill's book - "Think and Grow Rich" and it triggers something in me. Did faith is important to reach our goals and dreams in life? Of course! But what happens when you loose your faith along the way? I remember the times when I did have the Desire to accomplish my goals, I did had a Plan, and I did had Faith, at least at the beginning. :) And I made a mistake, that most of us do: give up after the first failure! But I remembered, my Goal, my Vision about my desire, and the fact that I AM creating my destiny! It is 100% my responsibility of whether I succeed or failed! No one else! So I start working on myself and learning ! Because the best way to move forward and to succeed is to invest in your self and to improve yourself everyday! That takes time, commitment, perseverance, desire and faith! Through hypnosis, using the suggestions that both me and my co-therapist (remember this is how I call my client) agreed before accessing the subconscious mind, you can overcome any challenges you have around Faith! Below, you have an extract of Napoleon Hill's book, about Faith:
FAITH IS A STATE OF MIND WHICH MAY BE INDUCED BY AUTO- SUGGESTION
All down the ages, the religions have admonished struggling humanity to “have faith” in this, that, and the other dogma or creed, but they have failed to tell people HOW to have faith. They have not stated that “faith is a state of mind, and that it may be induced by self-suggestion.”
In language which any normal human being can understand, we will describe all that is known about the principle through which FAITH may be developed, where it does not already exist.
Have Faith in yourself; Faith in the Infinite.
Before we begin, you should be reminded again that: FAITH is the “eternal elixir” which gives life, power, and action to the impulse of thought!
The foregoing sentence is worth reading a second time, and a third, and a fourth. It is worth reading aloud! When you make this statements aloud , your body hears it, every cell in your body hears it and they will start taking the command - remember you are the Captain of the ship! - and then your body will start act upon those statements - so your actions, your thoughts, your behavior, your feelings will act as if you HAVE FAITH! It might be awkward at the beginning, but believe me : Fake it, until you make it!
4 years ago, I took a train, which totally changed my life. I choose this train and all started when I asked myself “How can I help others?” It was my driving force to get up in the morning joyfully and have a sense of accomplishment. I invest in myself, so I can “become” better, so that I help others in better ways. I “become” a teacher of consciousness (like you can teach consciousness…You are consciousness, but I found out that, much later – I am telling you God has a sense of humor) which I realize years after that it was just a role I was playing, and you don’t become something by attending a school, or a seminar or a workshop. You might learns tools, exercises, but unless you really have the desire to change and heal, unless you are willing to take a look at your darkness, to embrace it, unless you are willing to fail and start all over again, never give up, unless you make that step, so you can own your healing, so you can replicate it on yourself and others, you can go to thousands of seminars and workshops, and you remain with nothing more than a list of events you attend.
So I took a role of teaching others how to go in their hearts, how to heal their emotional wounds, how to live from their heart, facilitation workshops around the world, but there was something missing. I wasn't feeling whole! I forgot to ask myself the question: “How can I serve?” You will ask me, so what is the difference? Well, life took care of that, so I can see the difference. I found myself in situations where I have lost everything! Being thousands of miles away from my friends, my family, no job, all alone. I found myself in the middle of the biggest storm of my life! But there…I have found my peace and my gift: I found me! I had to go through the darkest night of my soul, so I can see who I AM. And there was no Raluca, the mother, the daughter, the sister, the wife, the therapist, and the teacher. All of these were just masks, roles that I played; I identify so much with it, so that I can avoid the greatest and simple fact: I AM! And there is nothing after I AM! I am grateful for all my experiences and now I am ready to share with souls around me, from another perspective: I AM serving life.
I am not helping, because when you help, you use your own strength to help those who have less. When we help, we take away from people more than we could ever give them. We diminish their self-esteem, their integrity and wholeness.
When I serve, I do it with myself; not from the perspective I am strong, you need to be fix. When I fix, I do not see the wholeness in the other person or trust the integrity of the life in them. When I serve, I see you as whole, as already healed and beautiful, strong and complete. This is my perspective now! We draw from all our experiences. Our limitations serve, our wounds serve,even our darkness can serve. The wholeness in me serves the wholeness in you and life. Service is a relationship between equals. Service is renewing. It sustain us, it gives us energy from within, not from others.
And this is the new path that I AM, now. After 2 years, going deeply inside, I rebuilt my entire structure, according to the new life and energy that we are now starting to embrace. It is just my way. It is not THE way. There are millions of ways, as long as you are willing to let go of the old and make a leap of faith, going forward without asking how, just knowing and trusting that you are on the right path for your soul!
Hypnotherapy served me in so many ways and in a shorter time than any others therapies (Being trained as a psychologist and psychotherapist, I experience myself different kind of therapies). I discover myself through my experiences, being complete and not broken, feeling it, sense it and knowing it! And I thanks the people who stood by me, listen to me, worked with me and served me, so I can wake up from a deep sleep!
Hypnotherapy serves, and me being the client, I was not just a client, I was co-therapist. Co-creating my life from the bottom in a conscious way. I had not learned and I will not teach how to be conscious. You are, so that others can be!
And this is my promise and my mission, serving as a hypnotherapist: I will use my experience and knowledge to facilitate change that are mutually agreed upon to be in your best interest, in the shortest possible time.
