Working with reactive and difficult feelings

Sitting with highly reactive feelings is often a highly somatic experience that most people have no framework for and therefore no means to understand what is happening. It can be a very frightening thing to sit with reactive feelings.

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. ...

Psychiatric Drugs Cause Harm — #WorldBenzoDay

This is the video I did last year for this day. Help raise awareness and please share it and other information about benzodiazepines today.  Visit: --  World Benzodiazepine Day: Change through Unity  (Facebook page) -- Recently I wrote another post about what it was like when the illness incurred by the drugs was at its worst: When medicine and doctors almost kill you…  Because, yeah, I was on death's door for a long, long time. It can still feel traumatic to really think about that time. I do hope we can help others avoid such a fate. ...

Together we rise above the egregious & dangerous message of worthlessness

I don't think my life is getting any easier as I heal (which can really be a drag sometimes) BUT...I just love life more and more and more...truly life is good. Healing from brain injury incurred by psych drugs -- I'm not only healing drug injury but also the injury of having been thrown away... Continue Reading →

Healing from trauma is an unlayering process

Healing from trauma as well as the waking up process, in general, is often experienced as an unlayering process. Lately I've been revisiting the oldest wounding again. It's been a doozy. It's got correlates in the body (and shows up as chronic illness via the psych drug damage--everything matters and everything is connected!) and so I've not been feeling well either. It's bringing up all the stuff about the system and healers that played into my even earlier wounding.

the mental health professionals who perpetrate against us

I think a lot about why I can't work therapeutically with people in the mental illness system. I have found that the same traumatic dynamic comes up with some frequency outside that system too with "healers" of all stripes really...alternative doctors, energy workers, therapists of various sorts, you name it...if they are in the healing profession they've hurt me and people like me. Some of us are like magnets to people's ugliness. This is a sort of karmic phenomena for some of us and to change it we must become aware of how it works under the surface because it's not a conscious process for anyone involved. Clinicians are the worst because they're in a position of power and they deny that this is happening. That of course adds to the injurious nature of the dynamic. ...

There is a time for everything: odds and ends as they emerge…

Remember: inflammation, when not gone awry, helps the body heal. Everything has it's place and time. *** Some people need to quit drinking coffee. Others need to start drinking it. Oh, hell, yeah. One person's poison is another person's medicine After a decade of not drinking coffee (because I really had to quit!) it is... Continue Reading →

About that which animates all of life…

Seems my thoughts as they've pertained to my healing process have been essentially planted by life-force so that I would achieve through my responses to my somatic experience, what was needed in order to heal the whacked out nervous system, gut, and immune systems etc. Never has it mattered if anything was clinically true or not...what mattered was that the narrative made sense to my ego so that I would follow directions and ultimately heal. ...
