Learning about how to listen to the body takes time. Small things we can start paying attention to help. *** It’s best when we can taste our medicine which is one fundamentally critical difference from pharma. Herbs and food have taste that prepare the body for what is coming. And as we pay attention over… Continue Reading →
Your body tells you when you’ve moved out of harmony: listen to learn
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.
A taste of “Yoga is Union” – move your body and listen to sounds for the soul
Listening to music and moving to it (or not, sometimes I simply meditate) have become and will remain a foundational aspect of becoming well for me. I listen to many different sounds, do yoga, I walk, I dance, and I mindfully am present with the movements of my body when I do just about everything. Even when I do the dishes or any other household chores. Becoming conscious of our incredibly lovely animal bodies can be a deep and profound joy. … [click on title for the rest of the post]
The “Start Small, Listen to Your Body” Taper Plan (psychiatric drug withdrawal)
Generally when we start tapering, we all start with the expectation that we can hold our taper and our bodies to a calendar schedule.
Unfortunately, bodies were invented long before calendars, and healing doesn’t follow a numerical schedule. (Just try telling a broken bone that it has to heal exactly 10% every two weeks.)
And what I see is that the people who do best with their tapers are the ones who listen to and follow their bodies’ internal wisdom, rather than some external notion of a “correct taper” or some schedule given to them by someone outside. [click on title to read more]
The hungry ghosts know. Listen.
Somatic mysticism, diet and returning to my ancestry…. I like using “somatic mysticism” to explain my experience because I feel everything deeply in my body. I can feel my cells doing their work quite often and I feel all manner of metabolic movement and I feel far more than I can even begin to really… Continue Reading →
My body is my meditation practice
There is a freedom, vast and beautiful, when one comes to know how insignificant ones importance in the world is. This while also deeply appreciating the great value that we all hold as well. *** If your heart is not open to yourself then your heart is not open. *** When we are resonant with… Continue Reading →
this animal body
***Get to know the animal within…she’s the Goddess too. There is no separation…we are animal…we are divine in that we have the capacity to experience the oneness with all and that goes well beyond the body…it’s important to not leave out half of the equation…to be grounded, knowing and healing the body is an imperative…… Continue Reading →
Trauma and the body
Trauma that is held in the body over time freezes…the healing process requires defrosting…it can be painful…physically and emotionally. Their is no separation between body and mind. The body is mind, the mind is body. So what is done to the body is done to the mind and what is done to the mind is done to the body. It’s a vibrant, synergistic relationship of oneness.
Healing the brain/body/mind from trauma and psych drug injury
Let us please open our eyes and help one another to see. Right now those in public and sanctioned positions to help us are actually harming us unintentionally. We must bring this to a stop. We must help one another. There is no motivation to heal without drugs if there are no safe places to do it. Right now it’s not safe for most people most of the time. This alone will keep people from even attempting to do it or even realize or acknowledge it’s possible. It’s scary and the fear is justified and even rational given what we face. I am in a rare and privileged and lucky position and I still get frightened too. This is scary stuff. …
The brain (body/mind) that heals itself
What happened to my brain and nervous system as a result of long-time psych drug use was that it’s capacity to feel shrunk –literally. I’m now growing new capacities…encouraging new neuropathways and pruning less than ideal ones. I can feel this happening. Really. Anyone can do this given the right circumstances…support and resources are needed. This is why I do the work I do. We are hurting people with neurotoxic drugs that impede growth and healing. At best all they do is suppress and control. …
