Transformative healing: more working with parts (sub-personalities) — the god/higher-self/life-force part

Trauma causes splits in the psyche. Working with parts or subpersonalities is one of the ways of healing such splits. ...

All I ever was and had to be was sad

by Talya Eidelman It was that moment that I realized that all I ever was and had to be was sad, that everything could arise from that place. Even joy. I'm the saddest person you will ever meet. But I settled there nicely and that's why I am passionate and light and deeply loving. The deeper I felt my sadness the more I saw that it wasn't sadness at all, but the feeling that I was unable to love the way I wanted to. Sadness wants to love, anxiety wants to create and anger wants to make a change. Sadness is what wanting to be in a permanent state of undying love feels like. So we must meet each other in the sadness. Over and over again, until we remember...

Animals hunker down when they’re healing…they do not fight the process. Let us be like the animals.

As I surrender I find that my brain/body/ has so much healing to do still and often times that requires bed rest and total quiet even now several years into this healing process. It's not illness when the body needs to rest...it's the demands of healing. Highly intense metabolic processes happening that mean I simply have to stop and allow the internal processes to take over. I need to surrender to the wisdom of the body at those times. I generally don't bother trying to explain to others anymore...not in any sort of detail. ...

THIS

If I were foolish enough to give you a system and if you were foolish enough to follow it, you would merely be copying, imitating, conforming, accepting, and when you do that you have set up in yourself the authority of another and hence there is conflict between you and that authority. You feel you must do such and such a thing because you have been told to do it and yet you are incapable of doing it. You have your own particular inclinations, tendencies and pressures which conflict with the system you think you ought to follow and therefore there is a contradiction. So you will lead a double life between the ideology of the system and the actuality of your daily existence. In trying to conform to the ideology, you suppress yourself – whereas what is actually true is not the ideology but what you are. If you try to study yourself according to another you will always remain a second-hand human being. ...

Remineralization…a good thing to do in preparation for drug withdrawal (as well as for general well-being)

Minerals are essential for all of our bodily functions. They are needed for bone and teeth health for our blood, skin, hair, nerve function, muscle and for all our metabolic processes. They are foundational to everything we are as physical beings. All minerals are generally in a state of depletion in modern western people because our soils suck and our food supply is so compromised in a multitude of ways. Before withdrawing from psych meds it's important to have some foundational well-being if at all possible so that one might mitigate severe withdrawal issues.

Facing the shadow, both the darkness within us and that of others…

The dialectic -- staying safe and getting our feet dirty both -- we need to learn to do that. Lately on twitter there has been a meme about being willing to get into "good trouble." In these times, I dare say, it's a necessity to our survival. Be willing to get into good trouble! ...

Psych drugs and brain damage

It’s clear to me that many of us not only heal but transform into something healthier and more whole than we ever were before psych drugs. Forget recovery…there can be much more, much better than whatever we were before psychiatry. *** There is an unfortunate belief in some parts of critical psych communities that says that the brain injury that many of us sustain as a result of psychiatric drug use and withdrawal is permanent and irreversible. That we cannot heal from it. ... It's not true.

Marci killed her daughter in a bout of toxic reactivity to psych drugs

I am heartbroken and again and again. We cannot abandon the least among us because we are all in this together whether we like it or not. We must start giving people love and support rather than drugs which far too often cause further harm (seen or unseen).

Histamine, salicylates, oxalates sensitivities (food sensitivity in general, too): HEALING it all

Sensitivities to many different foods and substances, for me, have proven to be issues with poor methylation and therefore a non-existent capacity to detoxify naturally. I had 100s of radical hypersensitivities with foods that I no longer have at the height of the psychiatric drug withdrawal syndrome. ...

Physical, mental, emotional – all ONE (Chinese / Ayurvedic systems have known this for millennia)

There are many access points to the whole. Sometimes people concentrate more on different access points…like the psychological, or the physical. I’ve come to concentrate on the whole shebang because I had no choice. It was what was required that I might heal. Different folks have different paths and sometimes only one access point is enough to bring about healing that allows for basic growth and functioning. The only problem is when people imagine their access point is the only one that works and get dogmatic about it. We are endlessly diverse and so there are many different ways to go. Always. ...
