Published

on

When something traumatic happens in your life it rocks you to the core. The world is no longer a safe place. It becomes somewhere that bad things can and do happen. (source)

The American Psychological Association defines trauma as “an emotional response to a terrible event like an accident, rape, or natural disaster.” Life experiences like divorce, illness, and death can also be traumatic. You typically feel shock and denial following a trauma. In the long term, you may experience flashbacks, volatile emotions, and physical symptoms like headaches, nausea, and fatigue.[1]

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Is Much More Common Than We Think

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, affects many of us, probably way more people than what we may actually think or even statistically measure.   There are a few types of PTSD:

  1. Delayed-onset PTSD – if your symptoms emerge more than six months after experiencing trauma, this is often called  ‘delayed PTSD’ or ‘delayed-onset PTSD’.
  2. Complex PTSD – if you experienced traumas at an early age or it lasted for a long period of time, you can be given a diagnosis of ‘complex PTSD’.
  3. Birth trauma – PTSD can occur after a traumatic birth.

Most of us are victims of painful childhoods which can be very hard to break free of and it can leave us with very low self-esteem. We tell ourselves things like ‘I am not good enough’ or ‘ I am ugly’ or ‘nobody cares about me’ If you have too many of these self-limiting beliefs floating around in your psyche, it can really impact many different areas of your life, from work to relationships.

What is very important to realize is that these harmful emotions can really impact our health in the long run. From chronic fatigue to gut issues and cancer, emotions can play a big role in the underlying cause of these issues. It is therefore important to try and do something about these emotions and past traumas.

Any sort of painful experience can stay stored in our subconscious and according to some experts, these painful memories are also stored in our cells.   Unless they are removed, this can then wreak havoc to our health and wellbeing.

There are many therapies available these days, but they can be very expensive, time-consuming, and are not always effective.

I, like many others, am someone who has had a lot of traumas, that left many layers, which have been very painful physically and mentally to deal with. I fought to survive my own mind on a daily basis for decades.

I spent many years talking about all of the things that had happened to me, only to realize that I was constantly re-triggering all my initial issues.  Whilst some people find comfort in sharing their problems, is there really proof that talking alone gets rid of the memory that is causing harmful physical reactions?

How Memories Get Triggered

Recently, I saw a young girl break her wrist at a local farm. It was horrific to witness how much pain she was in, the terror that she was experiencing, and to also see how badly her wrist had been damaged.  This actually brought back painful memories from my own past. When I was 12, I dislocated my right elbow which looked equally as gruesome.

Here I was at the age of 42, about to pass out at the site of the poor young girl’s wrist because it triggered my own previous memory from all those decades ago. This is how PSTD occurs, We store the initial traumas in our subconscious, and if that pathway is somehow reignited, it brings back harmful memories and releases chemicals through our bodies again which affects our emotions and our health.

I couldn’t sleep without thinking about the poor girl.  Each time I closed my eyes, I saw her badly damaged wrist and heard her terrifying screams.

Abusive Relationships Are So Damaging 

I told a friend about what had happened who had also experienced her own severe traumas over the last few years, her ex-boyfriend used to physically and emotionally abuse her and after it finally ended, she admitted that she was so ‘broken’ she didn’t know if she could survive.

It was awful to see a once-powerful woman have her spirit broken by a mentally abusive man, and I remembered feeling scared for her, as I too, know what abusive relationships can do to a person’s health and well-being.

My friend had said that she was so much better, and had tried something that took her only 6 sessions for her to be able to think about all that had happened over the last few years by the hands of her ex-boyfriend without it making her feel sick, scared, unloveable and weak.   The memories hadn’t been erased, but she could think of them, and ‘see them’ without it causing her any physical reaction.  She said it was a miracle.

Sonic Reset Therapy

My friend had been using something called Sonic Reset Therapy (SRT) SRT uses the latest research in sound to produce a carefully calibrated tone, which activates negative neural networks. It then overlays the sound with a Reset Tone which gently reduces the strength of the problem memories/feelings/states that you began with.

What is the evidence base for SRT?

SRT is a type of Neuro Remodulation Therapy. These approaches, such as Eye movement desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) all aim to change the way a brain stores information, so that memories and feelings are healthily processed and no longer feel overwhelming.

How Does Sonic Reset Therapy Work?

Sonic Reset is a therapy that you can do at home, through the use of an audio file and your headphones. You can do it any time of the day or night (never during driving of course!).  You basically listen to a specific tone, for 20 minutes, whilst focusing on the bad memory or emotion as much as you can during that time. Then you have a break for 10 minutes and listen to it again for another 20.

You can do this as many times as you need until you can think of the memory without it making you physically feel something harmful. For me, and many others, they often only need to listen to the audio file once or twice depending on the memory.   It worked immediately for me in regards to the young girl. I was gobsmacked at how fast it worked. I also noticed that I had the best sleep that night after listening to the audio file before bed.  It was such a deep sleep and I had vivid dreams!

The second time I knew this worked really fast was during my sister’s wedding. She had asked me to say a poem during her ceremony, in front of 60 wedding guests. I have always been terrified of public speaking so the night before her wedding, I listened to the audio file, just once.

The next day, I was able to get up and speak without shaking like I normally do, and whilst I can’t say I had zero nervousness, It was indeed much less severe than it normally would have been.  I have no doubt that if I listened to the audio file a few nights before in a row, I would have felt even far less stressed about speaking in front of all of those people.

A Spiritual Perspective On Smoking Cannabis: An Important Viewpoint To Consider

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In the video below, Sadhguru shares his perspective on smoking marijuana and why it's not truly needed to achieve the feeling one may receive to do it.

  • Reflect On:

    I'm not saying there isn't medicinal value and that we should outlaw this plant, I'm saying we have a very large societal challenge, just like with alcohol, where we are not facing our inner challenges and are using substances to cover them up.

I was having a conversation yesterday about something that has always been a reflection point for me. Since I was a kid, I was never drawn to substances, even alcohol. I always felt great, high even, when just being.

As I got older and I finally tried cannabis for the first time, and then a few more times after that as years went on, I started to realize it actually brought my state of being and clarity down. The tough part was trying to explain that to others when having conversations about how these substances don’t produce a true experience of higher consciousness, but more so give you a glimpse in a sense.

Before we go on, I want to bring something up. The challenge with this topic is that we tend to get very emotional and rigid about it. Not only that, but we aggressively try to lump people into FOR or AGAINST cannabis. I’m not here to do that. I’m simply creating a reflection point as my desire is to help shift consciousness and empower us within to create a world where we can truly thrive. So for a moment, set aside your own hard coded beliefs and just be open to what this article is shining light on.

Societal Cannabis Culture

For the most part society either breaks down into people who judge cannabis as a drug that is for ‘stoners’ and are very against it. These people tend to believe there are no positives to cannabis. On the flip side are the people who feel cannabis is an amazing wonder plant that can do no wrong, and that the “highs” it provides expand the mind and we experience peace.

The truth is, cannabis has good aspects and not so good aspects to it. And while the positives can be really helpful for a very small subset of people on this planet, smoking it is one of the worst ways to use cannabis health wise. Not only that, society is using its medical benefits to turn attention away from the addiction many users have to it. This is a tough pill to swallow and makes many people aggressive and angry when I bring it up, but it’s true. In a big way, but not all the time, we are using cannabis as a society to help cope with feelings deep down that we want to shut off or hide from. As a note, we are also using food, TV and other things in the same way, but right now I want to focus on this reflection.

Cannabis can assist people with autism, people who have seizures, and in some cases it may have helped people cure cancer. There are benefits that can come from this plant being used in a proper medicinal way, but we must remember to look at the downsides that come from regular cannabis use that many simply don’t want to acknowledge.

A Note On Legalization

First off, I do not believe the plant ever needed to be illegal to begin with. In fact I’ve done much research on how it became illegal and it really had more to do with protecting an industry more than anything else.

That said, there is something to consider here that many of us aren’t looking at too clearly when it comes to what legalization really means. It means that powerful people are going to be the ones who profit most from it, that’s why it’s becoming legal. Not only that, but the reason it is taking so long is so they can get in place the many aspects required to make sure they achieve what they want: stripping medicinal aspects out of the plant profiles, controlling the seeds, and ultimately feeding society cannabis focused solely on creating a THC based ‘high’. This is no different than controlling alcohol and feeding it to society in the ways we currently do.

The cannabis industry is worth over $40 billion, making it the second-most-valuable crop in the U.S. after corn. As stated in a powerful article by GQ, “And even though weed is still federally forbidden, it sounded like whoever was behind BioTech Institute had spent the past several years surreptitiously maneuvering to grab every marijuana farmer, vendor, and scientist in the country by the balls, so that once the drug became legal, all they’d have to do to collect payment is squeeze.”

Humans should be able to make choices as to what they want to do to themselves and their bodies i.e. smoke cannabis or consume alcohol, but I believe greater education needs to be placed behind both and ultimately: we must start looking at the real reasons as to why we use both of these substances so often.

Looking At Cannabis Differently

I see that in many ways the use of cannabis is making the average user numb, in the same way alcohol does. I’ve used cannabis before, in a number of ways -smoking, edibles etc. I’m not saying the feeling is the same for every single user, but I’ve also been around thousands of cannabis users in my lifetime while they were high and you notice the same ‘vibe’ virtually every time. Perhaps there are varying degrees, but for the most part it numbs us out and sometimes quiets the thoughts to create a calmness. Is this like meditation? No, but it can be confused as that. I know, I’ve been there too.

Below is a video of a perspective on cannabis I feel is very important for us to consider. Let me be clear, I’m not saying there isn’t medicinal value and that we should outlaw this plant, I’m saying we have a very large societal challenge, just like with alcohol, where we are not facing our inner challenges and are using substances to cover them up. I am inspired to help create a world where we can truly empower ourselves form within, move beyond our mind and egoic challenges that help us grow and do just that – grow. But if we continually bury our challenges in substance, we won’t.

I believe it’s time we come to the uncomfortable truth and face the fact that as a society we have not done the greatest job in encouraging one another to truly explore, express and move beyond many of the emotional challenges life’s experiences have provided us, that are there for our growth. Think about it, do we want to just cope through life? Or do we want to truly move beyond our stuff? There is SO much suffering we can prevent by making it a societal norm to work through our challenges on a deep level. This is where I believe we must go.

Note: You can try meditation to help calm the mind and move more clearly through challenges. Here are more tools as well.

Lost relationships, divorces, losing jobs, feeling unloved, lack of confidence, depression etc. All of these things are not here so that we can use bandaids everyday to cover them up and get through them, they are here for us to learn more about ourselves, grow and evolve as people and as a society. To create a world where we can truly thrive. To get there, we must begin to face our challenges.

I made this choice 10 years ago when I started to discover meditation and inner reflection, and although I wasn’t a user of substances like alcohol or cannabis, I would use food to cover up my emotions or I would distract myself with TV, whatever worked. But I can share from experience, the incredible changes that come from shifting those stories within and gaining true empowerment will change everything in your life, and everyone can do it.

New Moon In Virgo: Efficiency & Practicality

Published

on

We are having a New Moon in Virgo on September 17th. This is initiating a 29.5 day lunar cycle and new wave of energy for the coming month; however, the astrological configurations mentioned in this article will be more prominent over the following two weeks. This cycle will include a Full Moon in Aries on October 1st/2nd.

Virgo season began on August 22nd/23rd, nearly a month prior to this Lunation, and will end on September 22nd/23rd when Libra season begins. However, his New Moon will still carry some of its Virgo themes into the first eight days of Libra season prior to the Full Moon.

This is a good period of working with and co-creating with the energies of this sign. Virgo is associated with productivity, duties, service, health, cleanliness, and purity. It is organized, adaptable, conscientious, skillful, orderly, punctual, diligent, efficient, analytical, detailed, discerning, precise, and practical.

Virgo is about problem solving, adjusting to changing conditions, and coming up with solutions. Negatively, this energy can be cynical, fussy, high strung, and perfectionistic. It can also be exorbitantly mentally oriented as well as overly critical and discriminating.

Mars began its retrograde a week prior to this New Moon which will last until mid-November. This energy is a significant part of the current astrological backdrop. Generally it is a time that can ultimately help to facilitate a change in how we apply ourselves in certain areas of life, however, the retrograde period itself can bring frustrations and challenges that help with that process. You can read more about this Mars Retrograde here.

New Moon Trine Saturn & Quincunx Mars Retrograde

This New Moon is in a tight trine with Saturn in Capricorn which is transitioning out of its retrograde at the end of the month. This can be a good period for operating in a responsible, cautious, orderly, productive, realistic and practical way. However, considering that Saturn is finishing up its backwards motion, these next couple of weeks are generally better for getting things sorted out and prepared as well as perhaps focusing on tasks that you have already been working on.

It is possible that in late September and in early October, we can experience some sort of shift, or change in gears, that can take things into a different direction. Saturn will be in a square with Mars Retrograde at that time, and we may have to contend with limitations and obstacles that can affect how certain things move forward.

This New Moon is also in a quincunx with Mars retrograde which can reflect annoyances, tension, or conflicts that may require adjustments and adaptability. Issues that come up may be at odds with our needs or the way we want to express ourselves. This energy is the strongest on the 19th/20th but can also be more noticeable on the day of the New Moon.

New Moon Square Lunar Nodes, Mercury Square Jupiter

This New Moon is also in a close square to the North Node in Gemini opposing the South Node in Sagittarius. We may be at odds between the past (South Node) and the future (North Node), beliefs (Sagittarius) and facts (Gemini), our immediate aspects of life (Gemini) and the world at large (Sagittarius).

However, the focal point should be the North Node in Gemini and expressions of the South Node in Sagittarius energy should be serving that focal point and not be the emphasis. The rulers of the Nodes, Mercury (Gemini) and Jupiter (Sagittarius) are also in a tight square with each other at the time of this New Moon. This can reflect tension between these two sides and potentially conflicts between ideas, viewpoints, and opinions.

Jupiter is in the limiting Saturnian sign of Capricorn while Mercury is better placed in Libra, the sign of diplomacy, seeking common ground, considering different needs/perspectives, and fairness. Mercury square Jupiter can be good for learning but it can also be excessive when it comes to information and we can more easily be mentally scattered.

Mercury Quincunx Neptune, Then Square Pluto, Saturn & Opposing Mars

Mercury is in a quincunx with Neptune which is strongest on the 18th/19th. This energy makes it harder to integrate or juggle our intuitive, creative, imaginative, compassionate or spiritual expression with our mind, communication, tasks, and thought process. Issues pertaining to lack of boundaries, flakiness, delusion, escapism, intoxication, may come up.

Mercury moves towards a square with Pluto which is strongest on the 20th/21st. Our thoughts and communications can be deep, powerful, penetrating, investigative, raw, real, and potentially intense. This can also reflect obsessive or compulsive behavior, suspicion, fears, anxiety, or conflicts pertaining to power or authority.

Mercury then moves to a square with Saturn (22nd/23rd) followed by an opposition to Mars retrograde (23rd/24th), creating a t-square formation in that time period with the separating Pluto energy (20th/21st, mentioned above) tied into it a bit. This can be a time of obstacles, delays, communication issues, pessimism, and conflicts while we can get more easily irritated or angered. Circumstances may come up that can be pushing us to be more cautious, realistic, or responsible.

This period is the beginning of Mercury’s pre-shadow period in which it will be returning to another square with Saturn. Some of the issues or developments that occur at this time may be connected to things that will play out during the retrograde (October 13th/14th until November 3rd/4th) and weeks surrounding that period. It will also be the Equinox and therefore this energy is imprinted into the following three months in which it can manifest in other ways/areas separate from this initial period.

Making Intentions & Things To Consider

What can you do to be more practical, productive, and efficient? Is there anything you can or should implement to improve your health and functionality? What have the circumstances, developments, or challenges over the last week (leading up to this New Moon) shown you in how you should be applying yourself? Do you need to implement stronger boundaries? Do you need to be more adaptable? Are you clinging to the past or are you willing to take steps to help you grow? What aspects or details of your immediate life, surroundings, or relationships do you need to focus on more and what excesses or broad aspects of your life are getting in the way of that?

These are just some examples of what to consider or focus your intentions on at this time. However, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you. It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. The exact moment it will occur is 11:00am Universal Time on September 17th. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

Why We Get Into Fights When Sharing Information

Published

on

We’re in a time when mainstream media and traditional conversations are failing to address a number of important topics within society, anything from current events to politics and so on, and this is birthing a great deal of ‘alternative conversation’ that often stems from alternative media.

But with this, comes to the common ‘fight’ between various ideas and ideologies that is much more avoidable than we often realize. I wanted to share a quick tid bit from a recent episode discussing how we can reflect to develop better communication and connection faculties that can make a big difference in how we communicate important ideas that are emerging without creating such huge divides ad tension.
