The more I engage in the practice of hypnosis the better insight from my unconscious I sense. Things are starting to look amazing. I hope you agree before they take this down !
Grab a coffee and enjoy a read that could change your life for the better instantly. I will point out some simple clues to recovery, and explain in easy terms the mind, brain, science and snake oil. To achieve this will you allow me to reframe some of the more traditional thinking? If nothing else but for a moment of emotional relief from the strict confines of medical science I want to show you there may be another reason for mental illness epidemic we are seeing destroy families across the nations.
If the diagnostic model for mental illness has been working for you and the treatment programs you have been offered appeal to you, keep doing what you are doing and please don’t let my ideas offend you. I have no intentions of changing anyone’s mind or method of treatment, I only share to inform another perspective that we could look at for the thrill of possibilities.
Well we have to give credit where credit is due. The pharmaceutical trillion dollar industry has done a very good job on making sure we think mental illness is a permanent part of life, that without drugs the situation is hopeless. Labels and mind and mood altering drugs have become the new way to deal with problems for all ages of people, from the elderly being most likely to be on a psychiatric drug (Vancouver Sun states 97% of elderly); women next followed by children being the most common consumers before men. We are rapidly giving in to sickly diagnosis of incurable mental illness which can come within minutes of sitting in front of a doctor. How can they know you have a Serotonin problem when they can’t even be bothered to take a blood test? They say mentally ill people need drugs to balance something, but have never proven the imbalance to the individual. I know I’ve been offered and accepted anti-depressants by almost every single doctor I encountered beginning in about 1998. At first we are told it was for only three months, then I must find another way to peace.
I use to blindly (not using my own senses) believe a man (or anyone) could know what is wrong with my body and mind without a scientific test. How is that for giving up will to another? How do we come to that place as equal partners to other humans?
It is a fact of life that the people feeling weak or vulnerable are at a risk of being led somewhere that works against their own good senses for a satisfying life experience.
It is no secret in my community that I present myself as appalled at the current way we treat mental illness in Canada. To me it is not only keeping people sick, it is contagious through the family and generations to come. Popping pills is NORMAL and we wonder why kids need drugs to cope and find their own way to get the job done.
Addictions continue to take over the will and lives of good people who become dependant on everything and everyone other than themselves. We have much fear around trusting our own good judgement and intuition on how to live, and live well.
I think we have turned our will and our lives over to the power of others – is that what we are suppose to do?
Can it make us sick?
See if these unconscious bits of wisdom that comes to me doesn’t appeal to your better judgement:
Depression can be the best thing that ever happens to a person. It is a message from the unconscious that a sense (or more than one sense) is out of balance and needs attention. It could be a spiritual emergency.
Self medicating is not going to help in the long run because it shuts down the part of the brain that is suffering, the right hemisphere.
Right brain is where ideas, emotions, and creativity for problem solving live.
Recovery becomes next to impossible to tap into while on long-term acting anti-depressants, which are designed to dull the senses for emotional pain relief. Drugs are supposed to inhibit sight, sounds, feelings, tastes and smells to protect the patient from…life.
What is less known is the pharmaceuticals also affect the senses of sexual arousal, hunger, insight and sometimes common sense – putting children at risk of being neglected or placed in dangerous situations, depending on how strength legally prescribed drug the parent is taking. Just because they do not give a ‘high’ does not mean those senses aren’t blocked.
Living with dulled senses for any length of time is not healthy to any reasonable thinking person.
In my opinion the whole chemistry theory simply cannot work for a spiritual energy, but this isn’t the first time I’ve sensed people in authority were wrong.
Like the time my pastor insisted (and I willingly believed) women bleed because of a punishment from God, and my role on earth was to serve man. No wonder I was tired, ashamed, and felt hopeless.
Ideas may not flow to the blocked mind and yet that is where our true answers live. Think of depression as a clear signal that change is needed in some area of life. If we cannot hear what the sense of depression is saying, how on earth can we end the pain and grow forward?
The imagination is what gets folks into trouble and it is what leads the way out. But if we have no ability to imagine the best for ourselves we risk manifesting what we are imagining in the darkness.
I ask you to begin to deliberately imagine a better life you can enjoy. You are allowed to fantasize the best for yourself besides in sexual situations!
To exercise your very own intuit; find a creative outlet that seems like fun to you. Colour, draw, write, or otherwise focus on something that will take you out of your head and in new light, so to speak. Play, pretend, enjoy something, no matter how small – as often as possible. Decide what is enjoyable for you, and do that.
Give up the control and responsibility of everyone else for extended periods of time – and never let anyone control you away from your peace.
Please become aware of the tapes you play in your mind about yourself, your life, and your problems.
The more we tend to focus, obsess, worry, the more of the same will we seem to bring about. For example, thinking about fat all day long will literally create more fat!
Maybe you can’t control the world at large, but you can get yourself into good mental shape if you think you matter enough.
Imagine you are responsible for one life and if you can manage that you pass the test and win.
If you build a foundation that works for you everything else will fall into place.
The universe will respond to your energy and reveal opportunities that will show you what you are really made of when connected to yourself.
If you are depressed because you didn’t learn solid coping skills, or were not really conditioned to sense a healthy image of self, please know that you are not permanently damaged! DON’T LET ANYONE TELL YOU THAT, please.
It is never too late to change your imagination and gain these tools to thrive in life in a manner that actually works for you.
Begin to allow the idea that you are much more than this. Inside of you is a miracle just waiting to be revealed I promise.
I’m winding down: This one is going to be hard for you, I know: But,
Be gentle with yourself, okay? No more tough love.
Chances are others were not always gentle with you and you’ve learned very well how to take over the emotional whippings.
Or, if you tend to be hardon others around you – maybe leave them alone.
Live. Let live. Let go. Grow.
Clear the fearful, shamed or angry energy in any way that works for you.
Aren’t you sick of people being mad at you, giving you unwanted advice, meddling in your business like you don’t have a lick of sense yourself?
Take yourself back at any time by speaking up against control.
Set boundaries. We teach people HOW to treat us. Teach them well.
Don’t do to others what you wouldn’t want done to you.
The stress of everyone else’s emotional reactions is just too much so please don’t inflict unnatural fears and worries on others to pick up
And don’t let anyone do it to you.
Remember, you are responsible for ONE soul this journey.
Treat yourself and others kindly, keep a clear conscience for peace of mind.
I ask that you never push yourself to do what you are not ready to do. You will know when you have had enough, and not a moment before.
Go with flow, not against it
Don’t be afraid or ashamed to seek out help in a way that makes good sense to you.
Depression is sick, not stupid.
Use your senses of insight to make decisions about how you want to get your life back.
Ensure the person or program you seek assistance from respects you as an individual, and has uplifting, motivating, inspirational ways to get you to your life recovery.
Recovery does not have to be mean, harsh, or punishing. In fact, if it feels nasty the odds of it working is unlikely
Stay away from fads and fashions that have no clinical results.
People spend thousands of dollars trying to find the easiest, less painful way to self and end up with the least success.
Hypnotherapy is fast, it is safe, it is lovely and it works – but if the client is not willing to put any effort into the treatment – well, you get out of anything what you put into it.
Research and then ask yourself for the best answer on the kind of help you seek from others.
Talking about your problems is good. Once is enough. After that you are beating a dead horse.
Going on and on and on is embedding the issues into the unconscious creating bad feelings all day long.
One good idea is to stop focusing on how you got to this place, and ask yourself what the solutions might be.
You know everything if you take the time to ask yourself. Isn’t it time?
Please like and share if you find this helpful. I am soon going to be producing a video blog so that I can just say all of this with my face right there for you to get to know. Let’s start talking about some other solutions than what we are currently being offered by the medical establishment.
Be like me; take back control over your comfortable happy life 🙂
