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.

 

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…”

To be continued…

 

 

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.

 

Turning Point

stars

Dr. Pert was speaking of Norman Cousins:

What the body needed was the life-affirming, joyous experience of laughter.  State of mind, thought, and feelings, all of which were completely ignored by the medical model, did, in fact, play a major role in recovery.  He even postulated that the laughter had triggered a release of endorphins, which, by elevating his mood, had somehow brought about a total remission of his disease.“-pg. 167 of “Molecules of Emotion”

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS TO US IN THE BODY, NO MATTER WHO HAS TRIED TO OR HAS VICTIMIZED US, IT IS COMPLETELY WITHIN OUR OWN POWER TO CHANGE, TURNAROUND, AND DO WHAT WE WILL WITH OUR OWN MINDS AND BODIES. We all intuitively know this and try to reason it away.

There is no blame because we have individually been given this full power.  There are no accidents; everything happens for a reason.  And NO ONE ESCAPES the REPERCUSSIONS of the HARM they do to others or themselves. The forces of karma are real. It’s not up to us to get revenge.

Ego says, “I’m sick and useless.  Everyone must drop what they’re doing and give me their energy for myself to use and throw into my black hole of toxic energy because I have NONE within myself.  Everyone else took it from me. I am a poor wretch.”  That’s a huge lie. It’s like a dementor and those in affinity will be drawn to you like a moth to a flame. Those sitting in the light of fullness and self-care will keep you far away if they are wise.

We each have a duty on this planet to transcend, release, forgive, and take action on behalf of ourselves to be well no matter what and FOCUS on what we want to feel for our own bodies and mind.  Stop blaming and take responsibility for your power to think, feel, and create. Stop giving your time and mind to religion, family, politics, and shopping that are negative if you want to be whole.

If you verbally, mentally, and emotionally think of how evil and wrong others are all day and then hate yourself too, you are full of murder, hate, vile disease, and toxic energy that no one who sits in love should be around. You are creating it with your mental focus. Pivot away from that. The Universe has your back.  Sit in the truth of love and wholeness, not in lies.

The universe agreed to allow you to come into the body and CREATE WITH YOUR BODY AND TIME, the experiential learning of your choice.  Now get busy and stop blaming others for the condition of your body and mind, wasting your time, and do something productive that you want to do.

There is no end to forgiveness from the universe or support for you to pivot and change because they don’t have an opinion of you. No one really does and if they do, it has no power because you are the boss of your body and mind, not them. The only opinion that matters to you is your own. The Universe comes from and sits in pure love.  You can use and roll with that or you can resist it.  It’s all your choice.  But wellness and wholeness is the truth, 24/7, available to your mind and heart to use, focus on, and create.  Practice makes perfect.

Do you believe it or not?  It’s the difference between being constructive or destructive with your time.  Are you helping or harming the planet? Do you hate God/Source or do you Love? God hasn’t done anything to you; humans have because they are imperfect, and so are you.  So, let it go and do good to yourself and others no matter what!!!

Turning Point; Shift

Molecules of Emotion cover

Highly toxic chemotherapeutic drugs developed in the 1950’s kill ALL rapidly dividing cells in the body, which means not only cancer cells but many kinds of healthy cells as well” p.153

Chemotherapy, as a treatment for cancer, is counterintuitive then.  Is it legal for me to say that?  The above quote is from a Ph.D. neuroscientist who worked at the National Institutes of Health.

I intuitively knew my father wasn’t going to make it.”-Candace Pert, p.158

It was at this juncture in the episode that I found myself at an NIH lunch table, sitting opposite my onetime collaborator, verbally wrestling with him over control of the research. As the power boy sat across from me making demands, I was in no position to mount an effective defense, nor did I want to.  In tough tones, he told me that he’d prefer to cut me out altogether, and deal only with Terry. This was his arena, he told me, in no uncertain terms, and I needed to understand that. After all, he was the chief, and if I was a good girl, maybe I would be considered for the position of research associate on future projects.”-p.157

I’ve encountered this in male chiropractors offices as well in the last five years.  It’s outlined in my book “Healer”.  Sometimes it seems as though we haven’t gotten much past Tudor England in the times of King Henry the VIII! It’s 2017 but the White House is still run like the Palace of the King and Queen.

Whenever something doesn’t fit the reigning paradigm, the initial response in the mainstream is to deny the facts“-p.162

The thing about that is, that’s how all humans tend to react to information they don’t personally like. Our egos and feelings come first. The facts of the matter come second.  IF….IF…we’d all pay attention to synchronicity and our intuition, that would not be the case. The fact is, intuition is rational and helps us feel secure because its basis is found in the body. It is no wonder that all of our institutions, (Church and State) and our health care system train us to ignore our own intuition about our body or tell us that we’re supposed to sacrifice them for the greater good.  No, it’s for THEIR good they want our money, energy, time, and body. You can take it back.

We’ve evolved to pay attention to our feelings, instincts, and intuitions and all the great scientists and artists know that. I make a good living now that I’ve empowered myself and have my own business.  You can too. But you have to love and honor yourself above what your parents and society tell you is acceptable.

Activating the 12 Chakra System

I work with the immaterial energy centers of the body all the time in my office while I’m doing Reiki.  My patients can feel it because I’m working with Qi or Ki. In addition, my pendulum can pick up the direction of their spin very easily but I don’t use it much anymore.  My hands can feel it.  I only use it when a patient needs to see how their energy is affecting something they can see; the pendulum.

the-12-chakra-system2

Chakra means “wheel”.  Most people are used to working with the 7 chakras, but in this time of increased spiritual growth and ascension, it is important to work with the 12 chakras.  That said, only do it when you’re ready, especially if you’re just now becoming aware of your qi and the chakras.

12-Stellar Gateway chakra-Accessed in deep meditation or even in the dream state at night when you’re out of the body yet still tethered.

11-Soul Star-The Soul Star Chakra is located about six inches above the crown chakra (top of the head) & is the bridge from the human to the spiritual realms. …

10-Causal-The causal body is the layer of energy beyond the higher mental body and is linked to the throat chakra and the causal chakra at the back of the head. This is the doorway to higher consciousness and links the personality to the collective consciousness of the planet.

9-Crown Chakra-This is where we learn, on a spiritual level, to love unconditionally, allow compassion for our fellow soul’s who we realize are on their own path, just like us. It’s also where we open up to lessons directly given from spirit guides and what opens wider when we seek an adventure.

8-Third eye chakra or clairvoyant seeing.  This one spins constantly for me as I live by my intuition first and then I run it through the filter of my rational mind.  It’s psychic vision or a sense of what you are creating going forward for yourself.

7-Throat chakra-how you express yourself.  Whether speaking, writing, playing, crafting, painting…you are speaking in your voice that is unique to you.  For people that feel they must hold their tongue or were taught to guard their cards closely, this will be very low functioning.  There is a good middle ground here.

6-Heart Chakra-who and what you love lives here.

5-Solar Plexus-Your power chakra.  How you express your strength, what you’re good at in the world or not who you are to the outside world, confidence level.

4-Naval chakra.  This is the Dan Tien and is the center of your body.  Your birth qi is seeded here by your mother, who also formed your subconscious mind.  This is very personal and sometimes we need to talk deeply about this.

3-Sacral chakra-personal feelings.  Relates to all reproductive and digestive issues.

2-Root chakra-Your grounding, sense of connection and security in the body related to sex, reproduction, money, ability to walk, willingness to walk, desire to run, relaxation and movement of the feet, hip, knee, ankle, and feet will be directly affected by your attitudes, values, feelings and actions with regard to all of these issues. Security, territory, property, what propels you to stay in the body and keep interacting on Earth in this unique manner.  The ten chakras above it are what energize you with “your agenda”.  Everyone is walking the Earth for different reasons.  The soles of your feet bring in the energy directly from the Earth like a two-pronged plug plugged into an electrical outlet.  Be sure you’re plugged into the Earth.

1-Earth Star.  The condition of your earth star will tell a practitioner whether you’re plugged in the body or compromised.

Chakra healing is now a widely known method of energy healing, and although most people are familiar with the 7 chakra system, there are in fact many chakras.  The higher ones are transpersonal.

It’s important to work with your Reiki practitioner closely to activate and balance both front aspect and rear aspect chakras.

Peace!

 

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.

Eat Whatever You Want

I know most of my holistic peers don’t agree with me on this.  That’s fine.  This isn’t a consensus reality.

You know the saying, “You are what you eat”?  I disagree…so much.  You are what you think and what you feel.  Wayne Dyer, “The more you change the way you look at things the things you look at change.”

I love it when Abraham-Hicks gets a new person up to ask a question and she asks them, “Do they tell you what to eat?”  I think it goes over the head of the person in the audience asking a question but I find it hilarious.

From my 15 years in clinical practice and from reading the science backing up the reason for why the body is the way it is, I believe that hardly anyone understands why the body is the way it is…really.

You are what you feel and what you think and then your mind manifests it.

Your vibration has been proven to be absorbed by all of your cells and literally changes them.  What is your vibration?  Your vibration is the dominant feelings you run and your habitual thoughts, beliefs, and ideas all day.  It’s also what you absorb from other people because you don’t have the boundaries up around your body.  It’s also what you decide to watch and take INTO your mind all day instead of being focused on your own body, your own thoughts, your own breath, and feelings.  The latter is what you’re shooting for being centered and grounded.  Then you can hang around in public and not habitually suck the public energy into your space.

Yes, food has vibration, by itself, without anyone in the room.  All the plants and animals we eat used to be alive and have their own vibrant qi.  Then we killed them.  So we all eat dead food unless we just picked it or just killed it.  But THERE IS NO WAY that any food sitting there on the counter has a stronger vibration on its own, affecting your cells than your feelings and thoughts right at this moment about the food.

The fact is, your thoughts and feelings are what affect the food, not the other way around.  The food does not have power over you, you are the one that has the power over it.  Your attitude toward the food you eat, your feelings about the food you eat is what makes the foods vibration.  That fact is the origin of blessing food before eating it is aligning our minds and blessing ourselves no matter what we eat so that we are in a loving frame of mind.

So, eat whatever you want, dream up your life, meditate and feel your cells vibrating and lose the guilt!  Be happy while you’re eating and that alone changes your metabolism.  Other things do too, but ignore the toxic emotions projected on to food or anything for that matter,  by other human beings and the media.

Salad looks really good to me, but so does the Laffy Taffy sometimes.  If I get happy thinking about it, it raises my vibration and eating it cannot bring my vibration down unless I change my thoughts and feelings about it.  Because they both make me happy, they are both healthy and they both taste good.  But if you really believe it’s bad, don’t eat it because then you are eating the bad vibes you just projected onto it!  It’s all about what you believe, not the thing itself.

Let’s see how long this takes to catch on in our compulsive, materialistic culture where everyone gives away their thoughts and feelings to everything they see outside of themselves to avoid dealing with or knowing their own thoughts and feelings, thus their own power.

Emotions You Run Proliferate

It’s not quite fully understood yet and I don’t believe there’s a scientific formula for it, but people are starting to observe the fact that emotions you run accidentally, by default, in reaction to events, others, OR on purpose… duplicate.

There are no right or wrong, just or unjust feelings.  Everyone is free to feel whatever they feel at any moment in time and then receive the repercussion.  It’s nature.

If you throw a ball straight up into the air, it will come down.

If you’re in the habit too long of sitting in and running negative emotion, it becomes an automatic pilot and then your body will begin to break down.

If you’re in the habit of daily getting up and feeling and enjoying your body, grateful to be alive one more day knowing it’s going to end someday and deciding to drink it in and run the race, your body will remain strong and vigorous.

Some people put on a good front that they’re happy, but their body tells the truth.

If you tell the truth about how you feel, let go and move on to the next one, you will be well.

If you deny or cover how you really feel and never let it go, you’re making yourself ill.  Sure, you can do it with a smile on your face, but your body tells the truth about how you feel and a healer can feel it.

Take care.

 

Hands on Holistic Healthcare

The doctors in white coats have come to be mostly about drugs and surgery in response to how misaligned Americans are with their own flesh. Many times, none of that is necessary. The flesh can be healed by moving the deep blood or Qi. Blood is Qi.

The responsibility is not entirely on them that they aren’t offering you what you really need. It is a market after all; supply and demand are in play and most Americans demand something quick because they don’t know any better. The information and choices with regard to being well are out there, but then they have to read and ask questions. Well, if they don’t want to do that the whining and blame begins and here we have the condition of our current healthcare system.

The health insurance companies make a lot of money off of this dis-empowering  dynamic and the federal government gets a cut by intimidating you into a mandatory program that doesn’t work,  mostly because it doesn’t include what does work; mind, body, spirit.  It’s great for sick people and those that don’t take care of themselves but not for most of us.

The public wants as many ways as possible to self medicate and keep their feelings under the carpet so they can keep their addiction going until they’re six feet under.  It’s this American mentality that gave us Trump.  It’s very red. “Don’t mix up my provincial haven with diversity, culture and choices.” They want to lock in a time warp, alcoholism  firmly entrenched with rigid religion and Hallmark holidays and “nobody touch that dial!”. They don’t even have a HDTV or cell phone. This is a majority of America in 2017. I can’t believe we’re still in Mayberry RFD but the world is going much too fast for most Americans and they’ve brought in an orange monster to make it stop with “alternative facts”.  The people who live in the cities and on the coasts just laugh at them.  It’s not working.

I and my peers are over here on the leading edge, looking at quantum physics and Abraham-Hicks, Reiki, Deep tissue therapy that moves the blood which is qi, herbs and chakra balancing. I put my hands on a patients body with a heart full of love to set an example and I feel joy doing this.  I use Reiki and teach my patients how their thoughts and feelings manifest into their tissue, then I help them release it.  All of my patients acknowledge and can feel the mind/body connection.  I m very proud of that. They are made aware of it through my touch. That is the case for all healthcare practitioners who put their hands on patients. We are called to a higher integrity in our hearts and minds. And we are called to practice strong boundaries between professional  care and personal care.

In a healthcare office where touch is involved there is no personal care. We use draping and there is no nudity.  In addition, we are not to use techniques that hurt the patient.  I’ve gotten a lot of complaints about that. Patients tell me that massage therapists have hurt them going too hard with to much oil pointing thumb tips or elbows into their flesh. That’s called nociceptive treatment and is un-called for.  Pain is not therapeutic it’s sadistic.

Also, there can be no physical intimacy, and it’s illegal.  These boundaries are still being established, but it degrades the holistic professions if there is any crossover.  I believe this is an issue in the public mind especially with regard to massage therapy where oil is used.  I do manual therapy, deep tissue work in my office so there is no full body spa massage.  What I do is health care and can be covered by insurance if the insurance companies would cooperate.  I get physician scripts all the time that they pay no attention to.

Hopefully, soon, soft tissue specialists will have doctorate level licensing and there won’t be any more confusion regarding which soft tissue treatment is entertainment and which one is healthcare.  It will be coming.
