So, I have recently discovered that my home where I grew up was near the Rocky Flats nuclear facility in Colorado that was raided by the FBI and the EPA the year that I was born for environmental violations! Wonderful, the lake that I used to swim and water ski in was a nuclear cesspool! Looks like I need a lot more detoxification now lol. The correct papers have been sent it so now I am just waiting to get some kind of pay back sometime in the near future for the loss of property value on our old home . No wonder I glow in the dark ! 🙂
Other than this I have been learning a lot from the doctor I work with about diagnosing and treating sacro-iliac joint disorders which has been fascinating. It is always interesting in the office, especially when I have been having my weekly massage with an elderly woman whose forefathers were Nazis. She is a very nice lady actually but her children are all ashamed of their heritage and even forgot how to speak German. They had to hide the truth from many in the US so they were not harmed. I agree with her as she told her children that the victors write the history books. She grew up under Hitler when he was in power, she is even reading an original Mein Kampf copy that is written in German right now. Funny, she says that she feels it was safer under Hitler that Trump!
Her friend just returned from Germany and says that there are so many refugees, the place is no longer the same and you can hardly find a German restaurant! Ironically, the Green party of Germany has attacked the nativist, anti-immigration party AfD calling them “Nazis in parliament”, which is exactly what this patient of mine says they really are! Her husband was in the same POW camp as St John Paul II. She told me a story about how the mafia was caught laundering money trough the Vatican and the Pope found out. Now, this person who was caught is being protected by the Vatican but as a catch they are not allowed to leave otherwise the laws do not apply.
She knew all about the Vatican having it’s own laws, how Henry Ford was friends with Hitler, and how evil George Soros is. I always seems to have better conversation with her than people my own age who just want to talk about sports and television! She is interested in and full of history and also told me that the Caribbean is named after cannibals. So I looked it up and found out that the very word “cannibal” comes from “Caribal,” referring to the Carib tribe natives of the Lesser Antilles.
Challenging situations help you reach your potential , pushing you into your power. They are opportunities to creatively find out who you are and what you can do.
Even writing this blog in advance challenges me. I really love the daily interaction that we have here. Your participation feeds my soul and pushes me to reach my potential. I like to springboard each day’s blog post off of the previous posts. I can’t do that right now, so there is a part of me that is angry and frustrated about that.
Do you see how easy it is to allow anger to creep into your life?
These are very subtle energy streams that most people ignore…are you mindful of them in your own life?
Do you realize how the little subtle energy streams can grow into raging rivers inside if you are not diligent in your inner level work?
The global handlers know this…do you observe how they feed the angers, hurts, frustrations of the populace?
Is it easier to succumb or to keep on your own path?
There are always temptations waiting for you to allow them into your mind…do you realize how many times a day you allow them in? and how many times a day that you reject them?
Do you realize how many choices you have every day to stand up and Self-empower?
Do you realize that it is the tiny, little subtle energy streams coming together that can make you or break you?
How diligent are you at monitoring your own mind-pattern so the outer world has less influence than your inner world?
Can you name at least 3 incidences today that tried to pull you off your inner course?
Excellent release work! The fasting always helps release the physical that holds the mental/emotions stored within the cellular structure. One thing we have consistently spoken about regarding fasting is “after-the-fact”.
You are doing the pre-fasting mental preparation. You are making it through the fast. But what happens “post fast” is just as important as all of the other parts of the process.
Breaking your fast is important. I highly suggest slightly steamed veggies, such as shredded cabbage and carrots with lemon juice and/or some type of organic vinegar, sea salt and pepper. You have to get your body going; you have to re-start the peristaltic action of the intestines; you have to scrub out the toxins that have been released into your digestive track.
The important thing is not to fill back up with what you just got rid of! This is why the mental work is so important. This is also why you may get cranky and irritable when you stop shoveling food in! You have nothing placating the body so you don’t have to look at the emotions.
Go into the crankiness and irritability to determine “why do I feel this way?”
“Is my body hungry? Am I bored? Do I want to eat even if my body isn’t hungry? Why?”
You cannot ask too many “why’s”.
And the deeper you go with your questioning, the deeper the answers, which can be extremely uncomfortable. You must go into your discomforts or they will rule and challenge you for as many days as you walk this Earth and beyond.
And when you pull them out, you must replace what you no longer need with something.
This is why I highly recommend Medium Green for emotional healing and Pale Pink for unconditional love and acceptance of Self.
Breathe out the “bad” and breathe in the “good”. If you only breathe out the “bad” you are going to be left with a lot of empty holes.
As soon as you feel stressed, you are going to either call back in what you just released, or create more! or both!
In the same way, when you break your fast, observe the body when it knows it can have food. Does it control you? or do you control it?
What are you going to put in the body, now that it can eat?
What are you going to put in your mind?
Are there too many food choices? Are there too many mind-pattern choices?
Is it easier to choose foods when there are less choices?
Is it easier to choose what to think, feel, do, be with fewer choices?
Do you think that when you do your release work that you have a tendency to call back in (or make more) of what you just released?
How do you fill the empty spaces that are left behind? or do you?
How do you fill the physical body after the fast?
If you really love junk food/fast food, should you never eat that?
When I do massage lately as I observe the patients I notice many times people will say “oh my stupid shoulder” or “oh that damn leg”, and I find it casually humorous but also why do they say such things? It makes me think, how many ways can we create to feel damaged. Why are you angry because you have pain in your leg when YOU created the situation and now you are blaming the leg lol!
I have been working with an interesting doctor of physical therapy from Belgium who worked with Muhammad Ali when he had Parkinson’s. He used to teach at university in Belgium and worked for many years also in a cadaver lab. I love him because he brought chocolates to our office from Belgium lol.
He met Emil Vodder who founded lymphatic drainage massage in France in the 1930’s. Lymphatic drainage massage is the most medically researched form of massage. In my school books it mentions that him and his wife developed the techniques for treating sinus infections, enlarged lymph nodes, and acne. The technique was used in the beauty industry at that time. What the book does NOT tell you that our doctor told me is that his wife actually had breast cancer. That is how he discovered it and developed the treatment. Because, when the breast is removed surgically due to cancer they also remove the lymph nodes of the area for several reasons but in part so it does not spread.
Lymph glands are very interesting because they have an “immunologic memory” and they protect the body from foreign aggressors. Their balance between filtration (hydrostatic pressure) and resorption (osmotic pressure) are effected by diet and exercise. In a normal circulation there is balance between the arterial in-flow and the venous out-flow. If you think of a bath tub faucet as the arterial inflow, the main drain as the venous outflow and the overflow drain as the lymphatic outflow it makes a lot of sense!
If there is not enough protein in your blood plasma then there is less resorption (osmotic pressure) and your bathtub fills up with too much junk! This can result in edema caused from malnutrition like you see in some Third World countries. The phenomenon is known as kwashiorkor. This edema can increase/worsen with exercise, or by sitting next to a hear source as well.
In protein deficiency the filtration will decrease because of increased tissue pressure and you are left with residue of interstitial liquid that is supposed too be transported by lymph. So basically, too much junk in your bathtub that makes you sick, take that vegans! In normal conditions the lymph circulation can drain 2 to 2.5 liters of lymph liquid a day. This capacity can increase to 20/30 liters a day. There are ways of treatment including massage but if edema occurs it is definitely a sign of malfunctioning lymph circulation.
These are all facts from the doctors book I read and below is a painting of his from our office.
