The Paperback of “Healer” is Printed and Available for Sale on Amazon along with the Kindle E-book.

Healers heal themselves, they don’t heal others. We can share our work with others though so they can be about taking care of themselves also. Healers are authentic, living examples of how you can step out of your subconscious imprinting from parents, family, and provincial upbringing to create your conscious mind and live a truly free life of your choosing. We also know how to access the information in our unconscious mind through the dream state. The unconscious mind transcends intellect, brings forward intuition and allows it to MANIFEST in physical! The information in the dream state, where there is no thinking, is available to everyone.

Crossing Over, Coming Together, Part II

I’m almost done giving you the scoop on “Molecules of Emotion” by Dr. Candace Pert, Ph.D. I’m going to finish summing up Chapter 11 of this great book where she talks about healing herself after all she’s been through in the NIH lab, with the men, and being unfairly excluded from the Lasker Award because she’s a woman.  She says,

I realized that I had been angry for years, harboring deep resentments that went all the way back to Sol and the Lasker, perhaps even further back… (more details)In the Lasker days, when I began comparing what happened to me to the losses inflicted on Rosalind Franklin. I had only intuited that suppressing my emotions was dangerous and might lead to cancer, but now I had amassed enough hard scientific data to convince me that I needed to heal my emotions if I wanted to pull through this difficult time-alive and healthy” –pg. 236

Rosalind Elsie Franklin (25 July 1920 – 16 April 1958) was an English chemist and X-ray crystallographer who made contributions to the understanding of the molecular structures of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), RNA (ribonucleic acid), viruses, coal, and graphite so her comparison was apt given her work and success. Born in 1920 in London, England, Rosalind Franklin earned a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from Cambridge University. She learned crystallography and X-ray diffraction, techniques that she applied to DNA fibers. One of her photographs provided key insights into DNA structure. Other scientists used it as evidence to support their DNA model and took credit for the discovery. Franklin died of ovarian cancer in 1958, at age 37.

Here’s what women do to themselves because there is so much negativity reflected back to us regarding having power, intelligence, and self-esteem from other women, men, and religion.  She says,

There was no doubt I had a reputation for being a spitfire, someone who was so hellbent on her own path that other people often felt the best thing they could do was simply stay out of my way. For the first time, I seriously considered; Was I the problem? If I’d behaved differently, been a good girl, and played the game according to the rules, would Peptide T have made it to the market, saving the lives of people who were now dead because it wasn’t available sooner?

I wrote “No” all over the margins. We’re not called to be saviors of the world or co-dependent. The short of it is, she found some spiritual healing for herself, was about to understand the true nature of forgiveness and forgave Sol, her old boss. She began to accept herself and found a quiet mental state where she didn’t feel the need “to perform” or achieve so much anymore.  I can totally relate to that as many women can.  She says,

I also started to become aware of synchronicity, to see connections between events and people happening simultaneously and then to act on this awareness instead of out of the more familiar linear cause-and-effect model”-pg. 242

Here is where intuition really kicks in and she says,

It appealed to me intuitively. The mind-body network is so taxed by unprocessed sensory input in the form of suppressed trauma or undigested emotions that it has become bogged down and cannot flow freely, sometimes even working against itself, at cross-purposes…When stress prevents the molecules of emotion from flowing freely where needed, the largely autonomic processes that are regulated by peptide flow, such as breathing, blood flow, immunity, digestion, and elimination, collapse down to a few simple feedback loops and upset the normal healing response.”

As a professional bodyworker and reiki practitioner, I see this every day and align it every day with my patients.  They can feel it and I stay busy!

“My colleagues were doing research on how trauma and blockage of emotional and physical information can be stored indefinitely at the cellular level.“-pg.243

So there you have it. And does our health care system understand and act on this in their treatment before they charge you $10,000/year for health insurance? No. Do they cover treatments by practitioners that really empower and help people get well?  No way! They are mired in materialism and greed most of the time and their treatments don’t work unless the placebo effect kicks in. It’s your belief in their pill that makes you feel better, not the pill itself. That’s an expensive magic show and sometimes they make it worse. It’s a crap shoot they play with our body and most people let them.

 

Bill Evans, “My Foolish Heart”

 

 

“My Foolish Heart” by Ned Washington
The night is like a lovely tune
Beware, my foolish heart
How white, the ever constant moon
Take care, my foolish heart

There’s a line between love and fascination
That’s hard to see, on an evening such as this
For they both give the very same sensation
When you’re lost in the magic of a kiss

Her lips, are much too close to mine
Beware, my foolish heart
But should our eager lips combine
Then let the fire start

For this time, it isn’t fascination
Or a dream that will fade and fall apart
It’s love this time, it’s love my foolish heart
My foolish heart

For this time, it isn’t fascination
Or a dream that will fade and fall apart
It’s love this time, it’s love my foolish heart

My foolish heart
My foolish heart
Poor foolish heart

The Secret of Life…

“Secret O’ Life” by James Taylor

The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.
Any fool can do it, there ain’t nothing to it.
Nobody knows how we got to the top of the hill.
But since we’re on our way down, we might as well enjoy the ride.

The secret of love is in opening up your heart.
It’s okay to feel afraid, but don’t let that stand in your way.
Cause anyone knows that love is the only road.
And since we’re only here for a while, might as well show some style. Give us a smile.

Isn’t it a lovely ride? Sliding down, gliding down,
try not to try too hard, it’s just a lovely ride.

Now the thing about time is that time isn’t really real.
It’s just your point of view, how does it feel for you?
Einstein said he could never understand it all.
Planets spinning through space, the smile upon your face, welcome to the human race.

Some kind of lovely ride. I’ll be sliding down, I’ll be gliding down.
Try not to try too hard, it’s just a lovely ride.
Isn’t it a lovely ride? Sliding down, gliding down,
try not to try too hard, it’s just a lovely ride.
The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.

Relationship Anarchy & Monogamy

It seems that there is no logical contradiction in romantically loving two people at the same time. But the issue here is psychological, as it generates profound emotional dissonance. (If you invest yourself which women do by nature).

The dissonance stems from the fact that by definition, emotions demand partiality, that is, the preference of one person over another, which entails some sort of exclusivity. Partiality for a certain man or woman is a function of nature for the purpose of beneficial reproduction and it always has been. Pheremones control the process and generally, women do the picking since we are the soil that grows the baby and the seed. The male sperm is fertilizer which may account for the lack of bond and his lack of emotion tied to sex or any physical body. I don’t know. Women’s bodies know everything, are emotional and do bond and nurture. It’s crazy being a woman. We’re like walking magic without even trying.

Emotionally, it is extremely painful to imagine your lover in the arms of another person. Indeed, most of those who told of being romantically in love with two people at the same time and pleased with the experience also claimed that they would not like to be at the other end of the relationship; that is, they would find it enormously difficult, if not impossible, to share their beloved with someone else.

The deeper problem, however, does not concern normative values, as seen in heteronormativity and amatonormativity but rather emotional ones. It can’t really be completely intellectualized. Even if this process of relaxing of moral norms continues, and there is no reason why it shouldn’t, a major problem remains: the partiality that colors our emotional system, and in particular jealousy, fear, humiliation, and sorrow which are associated with realizing that your beloved partner is in love with someone else. These are million-year-old brain functions brought on by hormones for our survival!

How can you not be partial toward someone you bond your soul (body and mind) to? Answer; You don’t bond. If that continues, the foundation of society, the family within a community, unravels.

But if you are a unique individual, then you must only bind your soul to another unique individual to which you are in affinity. Because you are individual, it can only ever be partial because you largely belong to yourself, is my thought. What of that?

Pardon my bluntness here, but I believe that in essence, wives are patriarchal fuck girls that serve as a status trophy for a man. The king in his castle. “This is the fuck girl (wife) that will bear my children says the fuckboy. It doesn’t mean that I don’t want the delight of other pussies that I call friends”. And millions of men feel entitled to just that… while they’re married…secretly. No love, no bond. But the fact that they married shields them from the truth. They “appear” to be bonded in monogamy which is a sign of emotional maturity, as long as they don’t get caught being immature and indulgent.

Post-fertility, I have no idea what my function is to a man. It’s not going to be a nurse to his lack of health. I do know that a woman, absent the fear of getting pregnant and remaining sexual and healthy could turn the world on its head. It could be considered a woman’s prime and make all the young perky girls ruffle in competition. I guess that’s a cougar. It’s tempting.

But what about bonding? When are men going to feel a compulsion and obligation to love and bond as much as women?

I don’t know. I just know that sex is meaningless and jungle level without it. I’m not interested.

Snow and Cherry Blossoms at the Office of Alternative Medicine; NIH

On page 224, Dr. Pert is now in Washington, DC in the Office of Alternative Medicine (OAM) at the National Institute of  Health (NIH) talking to Wayne Jonas, MD who was at the helm of OAM in the 90’s. She told him that it has long been her wish to see a program started inside the NIH that would do the basic research to put new paradigm science on a secure footing.

“All kinds of practitioners, from the nurse healers who practice therapeutic touch to the holistic chiropractors (and Naprapaths) who do manipulations, tell us that they feel subtle energies moving through the bodies of their patients. My own hunch is that these energy emanations get created as ligands bind to receptors in the body, doing their intricate humming dance with each other. Now, these energies have not been convincingly measured by objective devices, although a few physicists have worked at devising more sensitive means of measuring quantal events. Why couldn’t the NIH fund some research on the subject? —either on measuring the body’s energy field or on studying how energy healers can influence this flow, perhaps by using their own energy to trigger receptors in a manner analogous to the way electromagnetic energy fires neurons.”

As I read this section, which Dr. Pert wrote back in 1997, twenty years ago, it’s a little startling and depressing that this project hasn’t been achieved yet.  I’ve been a Reiki practitioner in my office and my patients and I feel the Ki or Qi, day in and day out as I work on them, and yet materialistic science has yet to ramp up their methods to measure it?  Yes, it’s 2017 and millions of people all over the world, from Qi Gong practitioners to Reiki in hospitals, know that it’s real and it works to move Qi (Chi) as sure as you can feel the heat of the sun when it shines.

Sure, you can make the qi chaotic again with your habits, thoughts, and negative emotions when you walk out the door, but all of it is alignable if you let it in. We’re teaching you how balanced and aligned can feel so you can decide whether or not you want it. We can’t make you accept it.

Wayne Jonas agrees with me on the necessity for basic research and, in a great example of synchronicity, relates how just the day before he had presented his idea for an intramural research program to a gathering of NIH institute directors. This is wonderful news, and if he can make it happen, it will be a terrific breakthrough…”

Crossing Over, Coming Together

In “Molecules of Emotions”, by now AZT was being tested and she had resigned from NIH in June 1987.  The OAM, Office of Alternative Medicine has been established at the NIH as well, right in the main building much to Dr. Pert’s surprise.

The OAM was established four years ago by the NIH to investigate and evaluate many of the alternative therapies and practices-including acupuncture, homeopathy, manipulative healing techniques (such as Naprapathic Manual Therapy), chiropractic and massage, visualization, and biofeedback-that have become so visible over the past ten years that the mainstream can no longer ignore them.”

NIH is finally catching up with the American public which is well aware of the benefits of alternative medicine as shown by a study done by David Eisenberg at Harvard.  In an article, he published in January 28, 1993, issue of the The New England Journal of Medicine, he showed that one-third of Americans are using alternative medicine and paying out of pocket, $13.7 billion dollars.  Here is the link to that article;

January 29, 1993 Article in NEJM

In a mere eight years, by 2025, this is the prediction for how big our market is going to be, that includes intuitive knowing and processing of emotions in the body; $197 billion

Alternative Medicine Market in 2025

Dr. Pert says, “In my capacity as chairperson of an OAM study section on mind-body medicine, a position I had undertaken at the behest of the previous director of the OAM, Joe Jacobs, I had had the opportunity to review many studies in the field of alternative medicine finding good data, some as solid as anything in the mainstream, to show that the mind and emotions can influence immunity. The experience made me ask the serious question; If we know thoughts and feelings can influence disease, why aren’t we doing more expanded hard research to determine which diseases these modatlites are most applicable to, and performing the experiments that could lead to answers and possible cure?

Oh boy, that’s a good question! My theory; greed and fraud are the reason. In a materialist, mechanistic paradigm, there are no profits in cures, wellness, empowerment and truth. And if you’re an atheist, there is no God or afterlife to account to for your selfish actions that hurt others by treating their bodies like they are cars or computers so they feel free to behave in whatever they want with impunity. What difference does it make if there is no karma. Social expectations and norms will take care of who gets accepted and who gets shunned. It’s a good thing they’re flat out wrong and the Universe doesn’t work that way. In their view, you live, you die, that’s it.  Get what you can and go.

It’s very cynical and nihilistic, isn’t it?  When I leave a straight’s office, it seems to me they don’t have a damn clue. They just want to prescribe more drugs that puts more money in their pocket. But they believe in the drugs, not the inherent power of the body to align itself!

Sensible, tuned in people know that we are not alone.

 

“Molecules of Emotion”-Chapter 10; Intervention, Obstacle Course and Trials

Dr. Pert is still working on analyzing Peptide T in the lab to find a cure for AIDS…page 206-7.

I remember feeling excited to finally begin the experiments, but also apprehensive as if I were about to dive into a swimming pool drained of water. Everything about this project, it seemed, had depended on some hard-to-fathom combination of intuition and/or mystical intervention and/or sheer good luck, all of which were somewhat suspect to my scientific mind at the time. The direction had been dictated by a voice in my head while I stood at a podium in Maui, and the choice of sequences we’d made, while based on a firm rationale, had involved a heavy dose of intuition, a fact that other researchers would either marvel at for decades to come if we were successful, or ridicule mercilessly if we were not. Now the moment of truth was upon us. Would our magic peptides do the deed and prove us right?

This is a factual account of a scientific process done by a Ph.D. at the National Institute of Health.  We cannot, with any integrity, brush it away with the wave of a hand.

“…I arrived early and eagerly pulled the tapes from the counter, scanning the numbers. It took only minutes to realize that we had something here. The counts showed that our peptides had knocked the binding of gp120 down to half, competing with the HIV for the receptors, just as we had theorized they would.”

Dr. Pert is about to make another remarkable breakthrough with regard to VIP; vasoactive intestinal peptide.

Much later, I was to speculate about what emotional tone VIP was associated with. Could a particular emotion generate or suppress quantities of VIP in the body, affecting how much of it was available to block or leave open a pathway for the HIV to enter the cell? Clinicians have the impression that increasing self-esteem seems to slow the progress of the disease. This leads me to speculate that VIP might be the hormonal manifestation of self-love, just as endorphins are the underlying mechanisms for bliss and bonding.”

All bodyworkers (massage therapists, reiki practitioners, Chinese doctors, some chiropractors, and Naprapaths) intuitively know this already and have for thousands of years just by putting our hands on the body. We’ve languished in the shadows and been called unscientific and esoteric, been ridiculed and called charletans while the white coats laugh all the way to the bank and the patients either worship or revile them.  It’s now time for the public to wake up and listen to what alternative practitioners are trying to teach their patients about mindfulness, repressed emotions causing illness, and the need to take responsibility for honing your mental focus to be well.  My holistic practice website is here: Deep t.Issue Therapy & Reiki

“Conceived by believers in the mind-body connection, Peptide T was truly a child of the new, more holistic paradigm.  And that was a big problem for a large establishment institution such as NIH.”

Trials to be continued…

“Molecules of Emotion” continued

I finished Dr. Pert’s book. Be sure to check the blog site as I already posted the one after this.Now I’ll try to catch my readers up to speed in about three posts. The second half of the book is far less traumatic than the first half because she finally starts keeping company with holistic folks and realizes how awful the National Institutes of Health was for her. As a woman, it was very hard to read chapters 1-7. Chapters 8-13 were great though.

In Chapter 10 she is dealing with working to come up with a cure for HIV with her team. In the section called “Intervention”, she was giving a speech in Hawaii. On page 203, she says,

“We had found a T4-like molecule in our brain mapping with high densities in the hippocampus and cortex…I began to speak but my voice sounded strange as if it were coming from a distance.”

Our data clearly suggest the T4 receptor could be a neuropeptide receptor since its pattern is reminiscent of the patterns of known brain peptide receptors,” I reported, the words echoing as they left my mouth. And then, following that seemingly from out of the blue “If we could find the body’s natural peptide ligand that fits the T4 receptor, it could yield a simple, nontoxic therapeutic to stop the virus from entering the cell.”

Here is an example of the INTUITION at work while she’s doing a live speech.

“There was a hushed silence as both my audience and I let these remarkable words sink in. Had I just proposed a discovery path for the cure for AIDS? It was the very first time such an idea had occurred to me. And then I heard a louder voice, this time not recognizable as my own and not spoken out loud, but echoing inside my own head! It was a strong male voice that commanded: “You should do this!”

And here we have an example of what it’s like to hear the voice of a spirit guide, which could be her father who was deceased. In my personal life, I hear the voice of my partner Michael who died in March 2016. When I call him to me, we have a conversation in my head. He never intrudes but is always there for me. It’s not odd folks; it’s common. Truth-telling is important here. We live in a world of Spirit.

She says,

“I certainly wasn’t used to hearing voices comment on my lectures, and at first I assumed the command was some kind of hallucinatory aftereffect of the exhausting hike up the volcano. But the logic of the approach was so compelling that I trusted that voice. Even the fact that it was distinctly male didn’t rankle my feminist sensibilities, because whatever that voice was-hallucination, the voice of God, my own higher wisdom-I knew exactly what it was telling me to do! My whole scientific career, it seemed, had been a preparation for answering the question I had just proposed to myself; What natural peptide fits the HIV receptor in the brain and in the immune system, and how can we make a synthetic version of it to block the receptor and thereby stop the entry of the HIV virus?

To be continued…

False Equivalencies of Gender

My intuition came on strong today regarding a remedy for what is perceived now in the media as immense gender disparity, women as the victims, and a desire for justice.

Matriarchy and Patriarchy, operating our human societies for the last 10,000 years have set up false equivalencies of power. The actual behaviors on the part of men and women, in terms of physical, sexual behavior is entirely NATURAL. What is not natural now is our civilization. Staring at our screens and not talking or touching one another is indicative of that! Our healthcare system is indicative of that also. Nothing about our body awareness, perception, and flow are in accord with the natural cycles and rhythms of nature.  It’s affected our sexual behavior as women and men, of course, as the first line of physical behavior since that is mainly what we are; sexual animals. Our civilization has taught us, via State and Church to not be sexual animals anymore, or follow nature, and that it should all be controlled and repressed. Sexual behavior and all of nature is actually a beautiful thing; not to be avoided but to be feasted on! Wow is the repression of beauty and enjoyment a profit boon for the porn industry; bottom line.  And why does pornography need to be only seen as violent?  Some of it is violent, much of it is not.

We see events now, all over the world really, trying to bring a measure of SHARED power not based on gender. We see it in Saudi Arabia, Europe, Africa, and the U.S. but we keep banging the drum of gender as a procrastination really, mostly on the part of women, to, at last, release matriarchal dominance (the Democrats) that subjugated and insulted men in the past while we abused our power over them.

We need to finally acknowledge that men can take care of themselves as grown-ups and need to rectify their adolescent behaviors (the Pubs), that we can each take care of ourselves, and neither women or men need to throw themselves on the sacrificial pyre of STATE or CHURCH forcing its values onto the family.

Those two institutions use gender war to take both of our power. Let’s support one another, be kind and loving to one another and acknowledge our unique power as individuals. Our strength is in each other, NOT in institutions, tech, political parties, and a money system that supports militarism and gender disparity at each others expense.

Network of Mind IN the Cells

steven-holl-shadow-art

Steven Holl-Shadow Art

Chapter 9 of “The Molecules of Emotion” gets juicy. Dr. Pert says, on page 185

The three classically separated areas of neuroscience, endocrinology, and immunology with their various organs-the brain; the glands; and the spleen, bone marrow, and lymph nodes are actually joined to each other in a multidirectional network of communication linked by information carriers known as neuropeptides.

“…it might make more sense to emphasize the perspective of psychology rather than of neuroscience, for the term psycho clearly conveys the study of mind, which encompasses but also goes beyond the study of the brain. I like to speculate that what the mind is, is the flow of information as it moves among the cells, organs, and systems of the body…the mind as we experience it is immaterial, yet it has physical substrate, which is both the body and the brain.”

The mind, then, is that which holds the network together, often acting below our consciousness, linking and coordinating the major systems and their organs and cells in an intelligently orchestrated symphony of life.  This view of the organism as an information network departs radically from the old Newtonian, mechanistic view where we saw the body in terms of energy and matter. But there is an intelligence running things.  Intelligence in the form of information running all the systems and creating behavior.”

Creating behavior?  Now there is where I part ways with her.  My son, who is studying psychology believes our behavior is determined by chemicals in the brain. Many people believe our behavior is pre-determined or determined, that there is no real choice or free-will.  Frankly, this seems to be the debate as we are squarely in the high-tech age, moving from Newtonian materialism to Einstein quantum states where something we see only exists because we see it collectively.  It doesn’t exist in and of itself, by itself.

What do your intuition and experience tell you here?  How has your life unfolded?  My life has taught me that I create my reality by the habitual feeling, beliefs, and thoughts that I run. So I check myself every day. It’s called mindfulness. While I am part of an agreed upon collective mind field as I look out my office window at the snow-covered roofs, my individual perception, interpretation, feeling, and thought process is chosen by me.  Am I kidding myself?  Am I just a puppet on a string?

It makes no sense to believe that. Otherwise, our lives would all be the same and unfold in a gentrified fashion and have no meaning or differentiation. There is an observation! Many people’s live ARE gentrified because they are not acting on their power to choose; free will.  It is possible to abrogate your rights in the universe and then your mind goes into default mode, programmed by your family, Facebook, and CNN and you are part of the herd mentality. There are a thousand ways to free yourself from that and uplift your mind. Follow your intuition.

While it’s true that in my personal life, death/change has been a constant around me, it’s not something I chose to happen; I’ve witnessed it happening to others first hand. The universe allowed it to occur around me for a reason or maybe I did. However, my individual choices are indeed the reason I find myself in my current situation. It’s all good.

My mind is run by my intuition 24/7 and always has been. Personally, I feel like I live in a kaleidoscope.  When others see static sameness, I see and feel minute details of an ever-changing landscape of colors, vibes, temperatures, shapes, dimensions, and souls coming and going.  Even sitting still, I feel in my body that life around me on earth is a dance of changes in light and shadow and I interpret them as quickly as I can and respond.
