Traumas Are Portals To Awakening

That got us hooked on the healing arts and I think I took every course that came to town in those days. Wonderful courses with Dr. Bernard Jensen on Whole Foods and Iridology, Dr. Alzner’s Deep Muscle Reflexology, Werner Erhard’s Seminar Training known as EST which was very mind-altering in those days, and although I loved the Vita Flex method, I went on to get certified with the Reflexology Association of Canada in the early 80’s and became a teacher shortly after that.

At that time, doing all this alternative stuff was nowhere near as close to main stream as it is today — reflexology, yoga, and vegetarianism were still hokey pokey and we were considered a bit weird by our children’s friends. The kids would come home from school and I’d be standing on my head, or be in the corpse pose, or twisted like a pretzel. The visiting …

Dealing With Negative People

In dealing with Negative People, the teacher in me will sometimes try to show them another viewpoint to looking at a situation or problem in a more positive light. This clearly doesn’t always work, because, everyone’s journey is different. In the case of someone not being pliable enough to look at another angle, I realize that I don’t need to have any more words on the subject, as they won’t help this person just yet anyway. I am, however, very grateful to have had teachers in my life who have shown me different viewpoints on the negative side of the world. I realize that there are very many ways of looking at things in life to keep yourself in a positive place. What I’ve learned throughout my life is that my trials and tribulations in the world, while sometimes very ugly and painful, have made me who I am. These …

Lower Risk of Schizophrenia in Children

Besides genetics, there are other reasons that can trigger schizophrenia in an individual:

    • Pregnancy complications, traumatic experiences in childhood such as sexual abuse, psychological abuse, and brain injury are also contributing factors that could lead to schizophrenia.
    • Abusing illicit drugs at an early age also precipitates the onset of the disease.
    • Any discordant and strained relationship with family members is also said to be a major reason for schizophrenia.

Incidentally, there are also reports which predict high occurrences of schizophrenia in rich countries as well. Seeking the best of treatments like the schizophrenia treatment can be a viable option for patients. The schizophrenia disorder treatment is counted among the best in the country.

However, when there is a family history of schizophrenia, certain precautions become necessary to prevent or lessen the effects of schizophrenia for the rest, especially the children. Because landing up in a schizophrenia treatment center cannot be …

Help Men Recover From Divorce

  1. Stopping to live in denial – If the wives initiate the divorce, most men are taken by surprise. This is because they have been living in a state of denial. It is important to accept the situation, only then one can face it with will and grit.
  2. Not freaking out – It is important not to freak out when the man gets to know about the divorce as it will make him more vulnerable. It is normal to feel lost, hurt and dejected, but one should be able to de-stress and share the shock and disappointment with a friend or a loved one. Acting in haste can be disastrous.
  3. Calming activities – It is extremely important to calm down so that one can plan the next move. This can be achieved by trying yoga or some form of meditation. Deep breathing can also be immensely helpful.
  4. Spending time with kids 

Health Effects of Cannabis

The term cannabis is used loosely here to represent cannabis and marijuana, the latter being sourced from a different part of the plant. More than 100 chemical compounds are found in cannabis, each potentially offering differing benefits or risk.

A person who is “stoned” on smoking cannabis might experience a euphoric state where time is irrelevant, music and colours take on a greater significance and the person might acquire the “nibblies”, wanting to eat sweet and fatty foods. This is often associated with impaired motor skills and perception. When high blood concentrations are achieved, paranoid thoughts, hallucinations and panic attacks may characterize his “trip”.

In the vernacular, cannabis is often characterized as “good shit” and “bad shit”, alluding to widespread contamination practice. The contaminants may come from soil quality (eg pesticides & heavy metals) or added subsequently. Sometimes particles of lead or tiny beads of glass augment the weight sold.…

Various Types of Aromatherapy Oils

In actuality, you do not have to be a massage expert in order to administer aromatherapy on the skin. If you will just look around, you will find tons of aromatherapy oil recipes. However, you need to ensure that you and the person receiving the treatment are not allergic to the oil components and the carrier oil itself. For instance, cinnamon oil is not suitable for direct skin application since it can be a very strong irritant. Also, vegetable oils that are often used as carrier should be diluted well and stabilized to become safe on the skin. Essentially, using the right oil and the perfect mix can travel a long way in achieving total wellness.

There are various types of oils that can be used in the treatment in order to achieve certain goals. Here are a few oils to choose from:

  • Rosemary oil – This one is one

About Soul Loss and Spirit Loss

The soul which has a human body, at its most simplistic level, is energy. Even at the moment of conception, there is energy. Soul is that energy that is all-pervading. And going one step further, science reveals energy cannot be destroyed; hence, the soul survives the death of its body. Yet, my title suggests soul loss. Does that contradict the Second Law of Thermodynamics? Frankly, no!

Soul loss comes to us from ancient shamanic practices. In days gone by, the healer described the malaise suffered by an individual as soul loss, or a part of the soul being taken away, stolen, or kept by a loved one. Our ancient ancestors believed that a soul could get lost and because it had trouble finding its way back, the individual became ill. Additionally, an evil entity could steal a part of the soul; thus creating illness. A parent, especially a mother, might …

Perceptions and Our Immune System

Medicine is not an exact science but consumerism has influenced the medical profession to act in a way to give the public impression that medicine is indeed an exact science. Medicine is not a consumer item yet they go along with the notion that it is a consumer item. This way they can apply the same standards of measurement of quality that applies to any consumer item which of course further reinforces and distorts our perceptions into believing that medicine is indeed a consumer item. Politics is game of distorting people’s perceptions. Medicine is all about clearing up people’s perceptions and improving their mental health. If the medical profession plays politics it means that they are also involved in distorting perceptions. Clearly they should stop playing politics and stop politicians turning medicine into a political football. They should be exposing politics. Alas, I can see no hope of society ever …

Benefits of Aromatherapy Candles

The art of aromatherapy is using the aromatic oils (essential oils) found in plants for the treatment of disease and for other health benefits. Those essential oils are taken from the plants and mixed with other substances, such as alcohol, lotion and other oils. Traditionally, they were applied in an oil base and massaged into the skin but they may also be beneficial when they are inhaled by being sprayed into the air or through the use of high-quality aromatherapy candles.

The fragrances from the essential oils work within the body, including the nerves of the nose to stimulate enzymes, hormones and to cause changes in the functions of the body. This would include lowering the pulse and reducing your blood pressure. It is also thought that aromatherapy may help to stimulate the production of substances within the body that reduce pain.

Aromatherapy candles make it very convenient for anyone …

Quit Smoking Weed Quickly

  • Setting a date to quit weed. Most people who use pot just verbally say they will quit smoking tomorrow or simply when out of weed, this is the most dangerous approach and most ineffective; it’s good to set a date to quit in a weeks’ time or days or even month. By setting a date to stop smoking weed gives you a goal to work to achieve.
  • Make sure you discard all smoking gear, most marijuana smokers very decorative paraphernalia like bongs, rolling tools, vaporizes and smoking bows. Getting rid of such things puts you at a hard time devising ways to smoke and this becomes more difficult for you and the harder it gets the more likely you are to quit smoking.
  • Being prepared and ready for withdrawal; having set your day to stop smoking weed makes the body ready for withdrawal enabling it to be easy for you.
