The Still Small Voice is Speaking. Are we sane enough to listen?

About a decade ago, two psychiatrists and a team of student psychiatrists asked me if I hear voices in my head. “Why, don’t you?” I answered. They looked grandiosely disapproving and all simultaneously ticked something in their notepads. Oh dear. … [click on title to read and hear more]

Is more stuff ever enough? Who is it that wants that hand-held device?

gary:rich

This is an excellent discussion. I’ve been practicing not paying for anything unless totally necessary…where that line is drawn varies and changes as I also practice letting go…I have become convinced however that it’s possible to survive in something of an alternate economy…or at least create part of our lives in an alternate economy… [click on title to read and hear more]

Your body tells you when you’ve moved out of harmony: listen to learn

gene keyes

Your body tells you when you’ve moved out of harmony…you need only start listening. There is no hurry, however. Take your time. Learn to pause and listen. Find your own natural rhythm. Slow down, breathe, listen, tune yourself back into gaia’s heart… [click on link to read and listen]

The body electric…genetic geniuses everyone of us…we need only pay attention…

The below picture is what it feels like to be in my body. No kidding…the psychiatric drug brain injury opened me up to intense sensitivities and this piece of amazing artwork expresses what it’s like. We are not alone in this experience. Many people are being greatly challenged in similar fashion. Learning to interpret all these sensations can be overwhelming. I am grateful that people everywhere are getting clued into this reality. We need only pay attention. Then we not only start to learn about the mystery that we are living we also start to find one another. Awareness is key. It’s time to wake up. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

Slow medicine

In our fast-paced world, we often look for quick-fix solutions to our health challenges, not realizing that these “solutions” in fact may contribute to our problems. Most health challenges are in fact the result of an imbalance in our bodies and lives, and most quick-fix solutions actually exacerbate these imbalances. Slow Medicine teaches that to achieve and sustain good health, we need to become aware of each area of our lives and explore how to optimize our wellness, not only within each of these areas, but also through their harmonious integration. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

Not knowing and living with confidence

already

The more we engage with our lives without requiring reassurance, the more we realize that this is already the case at all times. We can never have objective confirmation that we are making the right choice. We don’t know who we are, what happens when we die, how to have the best relationship or be the best parents possible. No one has ever been able to prove just what it means to live the best life possible or how to do so. Basically, we’re just falling through space, making it up as we go. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

Stimulate your vagus nerve and thus chill out: simple, natural, uninvasive methods

color design

What was really fun is that Yasmina gave me a new really fast fix. I can feel pretty much the minute my body goes into an immune response now. And so last night when that happened, I filled up a bowl with ice cold water and dunked my head in the bowl. AWWW…an instant improvement in stress, anxiety and the immune response disappeared. LOVELY. Yes, it really did chill me out in more ways than one. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

You will love again the stranger who was your self

dwalcott

Love after love The time will come when, with elation, you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror, and each will smile at the other’s welcome, and say, sit here. Eat. You will love again the stranger who was your self. Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart to […]

The healthy human being requires a healthy micro biome (gut) — for mental and physical well-being

love your gut

Creating gut health has been critically important to my healing process and I’ve seen it be critically important to 1000s of others in both my chronic illness healing circles as well as my psych drug withdrawal circles. … (click title to view and read)

Madness made me: “I made meaning, not in spite of my madness, but because of it”

a way out of madness

Thanks to the reader on Facebook for sharing this nice short video documentary. Just 3 minutes of packed brilliance: “Down the end of the long polished corridor, Mary O’Hagan comes face to face with the condemning words written about her in her psychiatric files.” … (click title to view and read)
