Sexual assault, psychiatric assault and the patriarchy

Those of us who have both been sexually assaulted and then assaulted by psychiatry have wounding so deep that nobody listens to us really - nobody listens to both a woman and a crazy person. ...

Adventures in attempting re-entry

But then again, I contain multitudes... Anyway...this is what the post is really about: Adventures in attempting re-entry -- Wow.

Reality tunnels or what flavor is your delusion?

Just re-listened to the video included in this post and had to reshare it with everyone. I really love this idea — “reality tunnels” as discussed by Robert Anton Wilson. It helps one adopt a larger perspective about all the other humans running about. We are all dealing with reality tunnels based on the context of our incredibly diverse lives and circumstances.

Everything Matters

Listen!-  

Today I tweeted:

I didn’t realize that it would end up being a bit of a theme for the day. I think another way of considering this is that when we experience clarity and not just delusion that there are as many windows to reality as there are human beings. Clarity in one human being will be from a different perspective than clarity in another human being. Clarity is our gift to the world. We are all different so that we might find that clear view and be who we are. In clarity we cease to fight over our differences and begin to embrace and deeply appreciate them.

The histamine intolerance link and how this paleo girl went vegetarian — and back again — dysregulation demands it

When we’re healing our needs are a moving target. Healing is not static! We need to respond to our body and be willing to change up what is helping at all times. This is a good thing. It is the opposite of taking a drug for the rest of our lives for maintenance. It means our body is alive and changing. Getting in sync with it’s language to come to understand it takes time and what is needed changes all the time. (that might include pharmaceuticals for some folks at least some of the time. We are all endlessly variant and our needs, based on our history, are all going to be different. Practicing love for whatever our bodies need right now is also difficult and highly desirable. We can only come to ourselves right now in this moment…with whatever chaos or lack of chaos we might be in the midst of.

I found the below article getting traffic again lately about my dietary adventures…it’s sometimes good to read old stuff and see how things have changed and/or remained the same. Sometimes I’ve forgotten my own insights…or not thought about them for a long time and they are again helpful. my dietary adventures have since gone through many other permutations yet the foundational insights seem to continue to be useful. (that means the *details* are now different and not exactly the same as what is explained in this post)

In memory, with love, Yasmina Ykelenstam of “Healing Histamine”

A dear friend and colleague passed away yesterday from breast cancer. It came as a shock. She was only 43 years old. Yasmina Ykelenstam and I were both running websites in the early days of blogging and we did a lot of bouncing ideas off one another back in the early days of that foment ...

The eternal child

The “eternal child” (puer/puella aeternus) in man is an indescribable experience, an incongruity, a handicap, and a divine prerogative; an imponderable that determines the ultimate worth or worthlessness of a personality. ...
