As I awaken my innate senses I am concerned about the state of mind of the people. I think they are insane. Or slaves.
Evidence is flowing in that right brain oppression has created a dark place for much of the population who live in the depression of darkness. Introducing a sure way to understand for yourself how well you are seeing things. Sleeping minds can feel lethargic, heavy, unable to see the flowers, or smell the coffee. Human senses are manipulated negatively by trauma, emotional reaction, and chemicals. Unsuspecting good people may experience very real issues with their living senses for survival if denied the opportunity of Free Will.
The focus on left brain intelligence where memory, numbers and logic exists to come to a proven scientific conclusion, makes mental pygmies of the people. We seem to have succumbed to the status quo, against the right brain oriented spirit. Up to 80% of the population could be right brain hemisphere beings who find it just as difficult to live in a left brain world, as the left handed feel using the right hand or the right hand using the left. It doesn’t feel good for a reason – it’s not the way they work. When we finally allow the left handed to use the left hand his work is just as good as any right handed person. Am I wrong? Do I make sense to you? Because this is just coming to me now and making perfect sense – all from my imagination guessing at things.
How depressed would the left-handed person be if they had to use their right hand – because someone else said so? What kind of work do you think they would produce for you?
Eventually, when working against the current we are going to get tired, sick and drown.
Insomnia, sight (losing things right in front of you), hearing, tasting, smelling, hunger, sexual arousal, body temperature and blood pressure senses are affected, as well as many other senses needed for human survival like insight and common sense. Symptoms will include mental, emotional and spiritual disconnection, low energy and sensations of mental imbalance. Physically the body can experience IBS, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Migraine Headaches, Insomnia, skin disorders, and worse. Everything coming from unconscious mind affects the human body experience if the brain is not nurtured, exercised, developed.
Okay, all of that boring negative news we need to know aside, let’s do some brain exploring just for giggles because I know you probably don’t sense a lot of fun every day living in a ‘inside the lines’ world:
First, give yourself a break. Go get a cookie or a treat of some kind no one else would approve of, and just sit down in a quiet dark place, the bathroom if necessary. Decide it’s okay to go back in time when you use to play pretend, imaginary games. At the very least, it can’t hurt.
Allow permission to unwind and relax for three hours or three minutes – the imagination can work at the speed of light, and there are no rules.
Are you ready to learn why we may be experiencing so much mental illness and addictive behavior?
What if I started by telling you there is nothing wrong with the sick at heart that a look at the root cause can’t fix? Are you interested in getting to the bottom of emotional and mental imbalance?
This discussion would be incomplete if I didn’t start off talking about what is literally making about half of the school population emotionally and spiritually sick. For me I could not tolerate public education in elementary and secondary school and I’ve figured out why the place made me so very unhappy in spirit.
This is important and we need more empathy if our kids are going to get anywhere…
Trying to cope in a row style environment, remembering facts and figures was hard and boring to me. I somehow knew I don’t need to know everything they want to force me to learn, I can teach myself how to think. Get me to Grade four where I can problem solve, read, write, communicate with civil behavior and I’ll be fine. I know now my learning style did not suit left brain academy at all. I started off on the wrong foot. The left one.
In Grade 1 we had these IQ testing standards and I remember the teacher saying as soon as we finished our exam booklet to quietly go outside until all of the other children were finished. Well, that’s all Cherylann needed to pretend to answer all of them correctly as fast as possible without looking at the questions. Just filled in the grey squares and off I go to play – first one out.
Of course the system thought I was disabled in some way from the beginning because of that first impression brought on by a little girl who just wanted to end the unhappy classroom experience. From that moment on my life took a turn for the worse and lost years of education I’ll never get back. I failed grade 2. That was the first year I remember feeling a deep seated depression settling in my spirit. No one had any confidence in me even though I could tell time before my brother who was two years older than me, and I was reading way beyond anyone else I knew. I wrote poetry and was so good even my mother liked my written thought sometimes although she nor I saved anything. It was rare for me to have any credit in school until I found my own way back starting at my age of 21.
Let me give you a couple of examples on how public school was no help in my emotional or academic growth. Grade 8 Math said I did nothing that semester, and I finally dropped out of school in grade 10 after the huge disappointment I received from the one class I did like, English: We were told for 50% of the grade to write a book of poetry. All different kinds, Haiku, Couplet, Limerick, Free Verse…omg I was in heaven! Finally I was going to bring home an “A” rather than the usual D’s and F’s or Incomplete’s with “U” for Unsatisfactory effort. Then the system kicked me in the ass right out the door when the assignment had an added requirement: I had to illustrate each poem. People who get my brain will feel my pain in the idea of drawing pictures! It will RUIN EVERYTHING! In the poetry there is passion, in my drawing we barely have a Kindergarten level ability of even staying in the lines. It was a horrifying assignment that sucked all of my passion right out me until I found myself again. I refused to illustrate those poems, wanting to show off my poetic art, and only received a C, and the teacher said I should have had an incomplete. I am creative, but in my own unique ways that didn’t include fine arts.
So I did what any other free thinking right brain person would do, run away from home to escape the madness. That’s a nice way to frame things but I want you to know my awareness about myself then was nothing like the self-awareness of I have myself today. I was a worthless no value person who was filled with self doubt and even hatred, in my mind back in the day. A bad girl in my mind, however mislead.
I look back today and am in awe of how my life came together so unconsciously perfectly well, and how I made it is anyone’s guess. I am a miracle but that’s another story I’ll share another time.
Speaking of guessing and getting back to the spirit:
I think guessing is the secret to everything. I am conscious of our right brain capabilities lately in my work as a Clinical Hypnotherapist. I work with some seriously depressed and anxious women and men who are collapsing in the same left-brain oriented world that I almost drowned in before them. All of this memory, order, perfection, lines, rules, technology, is making people sick. We worship and embrace logical training and is now (or has always, I don’t know) the dominate force of our people. It is the only side of the brain respected or valued in this, and most other worldly cultures.
The problem is men and women were created equal, but not the same. It’s so obvious to me I can’t believe no one thought of this before. We have such a completely different physical and mental mind it’s amazing no one said anything to make me think again about how important Math 8 would be, considering the trauma it caused my happy spirit. We need to ask why doctors only studied the male body for research until recently when female forms are the one’s with all of the tools for life? How can they compare the sexes at all? Why no man still understands a woman is because he isn’t one. It’s part of the plan for us to be different, but we spend so much time trying to be the same as men instead of our own amazing selves.
This is where the exciting part comes in for women everywhere and to come – it turns out our part of the brain makes us the inventors of the world too! We are Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, and Alexander Bell, and all of the one’s who made this world what it is today because they were allowed to imagine things without shaming. Airplanes and wild ideas of internet connect was just an idea floating around someone’s right brain. The imagination. If that imagination can connect with the senses for life; sight, sound, taste, smell, touch – and intuition – you can count on a manifestation in reality. The creator. That’s our gift. We have ideas, imagination, and the creative passion within us that would make this world one hell of a place to live. Almost perfection if you think about it. Being allowed to imagine is all it takes.
Can men be right brain oriented and women be left? Absolutely. It’s true more women are right brain feminine but there are many right brain masculine. Gays, transgendered, ADHD (so-called) and other male types are right brain oriented in some areas and do not do well in school in many cases. Unless they are little lobotomized to obedience or something. The mind is is about spirit development, supposed to be, don’t you think?
The emotional imagination has been played with and manipulated for someone else’s benefit. Not mine. Instead of imagining and manifesting a good life for ourselves, we give the female sex up to the idea that we are born in sin. Fear, shame, anger are learned into the consciousness, darkening the heart to sleep until you hardly know it’s there anymore. This part of our being feels like it’s going insane. The unconscious spirit just can’t take it anymore! That’s what I think.
Imagine the imagination is exactly where your kind of wisdom is found? And it’s beyond left brain limits – it is infinite in emotional intelligence. The way we have evolved is an example…and it just keeps getting better. But never to perfection. It is infinite, flexible, relative, and does not know time.
The whole point is self-love and respect, and to count on you for your good life. The spirit can only awaken to universal wisdom if we know it is there. It is clear we have been led down the wrong road for our own spiritual sake with the judgement we place on men and women alike. It is never too late, and maybe all of our experiences was supposed to be how we were going to develop the soul all along anyway.
SENSES OF THE IMAGINATION
How do you solve problems and then thrive?
- Guess. If you don’t know the answer to something, use your imagination to figure out the problem. You know. You know everything. The more you believe the more you know. This is an amazingly fast way to open up the vault of the unconscious imagination. You know things, you have had life, lots of your experiences will remind you of the answer and it’s all stored right there in the unconscious ready to be accessed if you’d just go to the guess channel. I’ll tell you a secret, if you connect with yourself enough you might soon be connecting with your guides and the rest of the universe as well.
2. Put yourself into trance regularly. If you can’t see a Hypnotherapist then find a way to get out of your own way. Music, arts, look into a fire, whatever…you know how, you know everything. I have confidence in your innate talents and resources to put yourself into a calm state of mind where you don’t have to think for a while. 🙂
3. When in a trace state of mind begin to dream and fantasize using the mind’s eye. If you have difficulty understanding this, think of it as the same way you might have fantasies for sexual gratification, only this time you want to open up the juices of other senses for life. To create your imagination with any kind of clarity the dark ego emotional nonsense has to be removed. It’s okay, you don’t need them believe me. You really have to be willing to give up a lot of the ego. Use your imagination to balance the emotional senses. It won’t hurt your sex drive to focus on another fantasy, it might even help.
Friends, as we evolve into this next age emotions are sparking everywhere and it is going to get worse, you can imagine. This is your gift, your deal – emotions and they are love, compassion and empathy. That’s the heart under the ego of fear, shame, and anger. You feel unstable because you are waking up I suspect, and can sense things that go on in your life are not right, but can’t figure out what. It’s right brain oppression and you’re only just beginning an amazing journey now. It feels unstable because no one is agreeing with your thinking that you can hardly deny anymore. Right brain people keep silent and I share from my heart to be an example of the opposite. I hope you find your purpose and inspire others with your mind. It is special. It is very special. Finally.
For Suffering Sensitive Men and Women
You can come up with ideas to leave a controlling or abusive relationship. Find a way because you are smart like that so do it. Without consciousness the senses feel like insanity.
Men, they’re great too with their own unique talents, resources, and offerings to the world! But not everything is all about men, especially when the main right brainers are indeed women who have been very badly neglected in life offerings and benefits, and we are beginning to know it. I encourage the development of right brain education, in the way that suits the child’s spirit. I tell big pharma that drugging beautiful minds with medication that stays in the energy 24/7 should be a criminal offense, if they only knew the damage it was doing throughout North America.
Instead of using the imagination to scare yourself to death, try to turn the imagination around for better results and watch yourself blossom into the butterfly you were meant to be. What do you think all of those pretty butterflies are trying to tell you when they flutter by? Time to stand up and take your place at the table with all of the others now. If no one has invited you to equality and good life, find another way. You too will come up with all sorts of theories as you evolve. What if you are allowed? XXOO

I notice a disturbing pattern emerging when it comes to mental illness and women. First, the current system seems to be creating even more sickness and suicide for the multitudes and masses, which conflicts with my good senses of what a medical community should be doing for the betterment of society. Second, I believe the cause of so much unhappiness has little to do with illness, and more to do with oppression of right brain talents and resources.
I know what wonderful and miraculous things can happen when creative folks are allowed to express themselves exactly how they are without having to compare their gifts to left brain oriented counterparts. I see women and men regain self-esteem very quickly with just learning a few new ideas for WHY they may be feeling so mentally sick other than what they are being told by doctors and pharmaceutical commercials.
What if mental illness is really an unconscious reaction to bullshit?
Why does it seem like more women than men are ‘crazy?’ How come no one ever asks how to cure mental illness and seem perfectly happy accepting drugs as the solution to unconscious despair? Schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterized by abnormal social behavior and failure to understand what is real according to Wikipedia. Whose real? How come in many eastern countries schizophrenia folks are used as ‘wise men and women’ who have great insight to things most people cannot see? These are just a few questions I have after years of living my life as a woman in a society that insists my body and mind must work like the male ones or I am ‘abnormal.’ I believe women (and men) are brainwashed into believing how they are supposed to feel and be, because it works better for someone else.
Imagine a world that nourishes, respects, and even admires women for their physiological differences? How much better can civilization be with a ‘feminine’ balance to masculine values? I wonder if one would feel mental in a world of left brain folks if they thought their right brains mattered too?
Women have been traditionally ‘known’ to be the crazy ones at home, work, and in the psyche wards. What if ‘mental illness’ is really ‘right brain intelligence neglect?’ We live in a left brain world where conditioning and development is almost entirely based on preferences of logic and order. It all starts in grade one. Everything one needs to know about the right brain is apparently learned by Kindergarten because that is when the imagination part of us begins to get stifled, shut down and shut up to make room for academics. Sure we have some music and art classes available to help students along, but mostly we will find left brain activities of memory development, algebra, and even sports as the preferred activities, and this is about as interesting as going to the dentist all day long for some people and so problems ensue when one does not live up to the expectations of the educational system we have available.
Soon we may wonder what is wrong with girls who suffer in math or boys who disrupt procedures in the class. Why is everyone else going to school like good little boys and girls, but others are simply not fitting in, and ‘failing?’ Many children are now being labeled as diseased in some way, mentally if they do not keep up with the way things are. It’s becoming ridiculous to me to see so many children and adults drugged and put away for life with a label of mental illness because we do not care to look deeper.
Displaced children grow up with thoughts of inadequacy, not belonging, and no voice. Powerlessness in a system that actually works against the amazing minds of right brain thinkers creates so much turmoil a person can hardly cope after a while. Soon the person may begin to shut themselves down in fear of their own differences.
Mental illness can feel debilitating. There is no sense of self power or control when one is hidden under blankets day in and day out with the television blaring in the background to drown out the destructive thoughts. Drugs, alcohol or food are often introduced to cut the incessant misery sense. What about anxiety? What a nightmare that is when they suddenly have an inability to breathe while driving, or in a public place. What is the answer we have for these suffering souls? Ativan, Xanax, Clonazapam. Imagine what it might be like to feel worthless, unlovable, wants to give up, and die. Suicide has become so epidemic it is now the number one killer of our youth — more than accidents and murder put together.
Whatever we are doing to help mentally ill and addicted people does not seem to be working. In fact, it is making things much worse.
People are dying in record numbers by their own hand!
What if the problem isn’t mental illness, rather mental deprivation of the senses which can be restored with a little bit of attention to the real problems in society?
Are you ready for a new perspective on that ever so popular DSM, the Diagnostic and Statistic Manual that every doctor in North America refers to as a bible of sorts when deciding what is wrong with women medically, when it comes to mental symptoms?
If someone’s answer to our problems makes a little bit of sense we may inadvertently buy into horrible permanent life decisions for temporary emotional relief. Vulnerable folks are easily convinced on the idea there is something wrong with their biology because nothing else seems to make sense in their world. The so-called science about Serotonin being discovered as the culprit to mental illness is still being passed around as truth. Just Google, “Serotonin Lie” and see what you find. Every day we are seeing cases of pharmaceutical marketing literally driving people completely away from themselves and their own good senses and on drugs actually designed to inhibit the life of the right brain!
If anyone tells me I have an incurable mental or physical illness you better believe I need to see the blood work or x-ray to prove that today. No longer do I take the word of someone who cannot possibly understand my world as they figure I may have a biological problem, rather than something else going on. For mental illness no evidence of chemistry sickness exists even though people believe this to be the case. Sometimes a confused doctor will say no one really knows what causes mental illness so it could be DNA genetically passed down with no reason at all.
Perhaps. Maybe not. My clients tell me they get tired of doctors guessing treatment until the right drug is discovered by accident. Stuffing symptoms with mind altering chemicals makes as much sense as someone taking a pain medication for a physical reason forever, doesn’t it? It should be RARE not the common practice to offer life time brain-pain medication.
When can we find out why people feel mental? For some it is simply easier to pack it in and be sick with permission from the system. Many women agree to be mental so they can have a government sponsored disability income in a corporate society that offers a fraction of work income and benefits their left brain brothers are earning. We have made women responsible for everything to do with the family, accountable for keeping everything together without assistance from a wayward spouse, and then pay her peanuts when she needs to work to put food in the kids mouths. I’d rather go on mental disability, thanks. It is all about survival and women will do what they must to keep going; some are brilliant at working the system that tries to keep them powerless, afraid, and ashamed. You go girl!
Isn’t it time to fix the problem before life is completely wasted away? I hear time and time again, “My depression keeps me stuck. I am anxious and stressed about everything. I have a feeling like I don’t belong somehow. I don’t matter. Everyone walks all over me. I am too sensitive. There is something wrong with me. I can’t get along with the people everyone else gets along with, and, I can’t seem to learn the way everyone else is learning.”
Seeing things with new eyes
Let’s take a look at some of the labels the DSM and current traditional medicine in a new light, and I’ll suggest an alternative option for rescue and recovery for each ‘disease’ as listed:
Depression — Lives in the past. Often caused by a serious denial of self-love, a traumatic event, or conditioned feelings of powerlessness. The depressed person is often brainwashed to believe they are financially needy or dependant in an unhealthy relationship they feel they must have for survival. Unconscious self anger results in confusion. Wrongful thoughts become so debilitating the body lives in a constant state of tension, pain and exhaustion.
Rescue and Recovery — Get out of the environment and find a place to re-group – alone. Figure out why you have taken over the emotional abuse (in thought) and learn how to retrain your thinking and imagination to the satisfaction of your spirit. Stop looking at the problem and begin wondering about solutions for your own comfort, peace, and happiness. Find a way to matter to you. Your gift, the right brain (imagination), has infinite ideas, start looking there. Even more importantly, find a way to not need someone else for survival as that kind of relationship can turn you into a miserable slave working against your own life. Chronic unhappiness is a clue something is wrong in LEARNED THINKING.
Make a new life plan when you are up to it. Women don’t get defeated overnight and it will take some time to regain self, but you can count on a right brain woman to find a way to get the job done if she is interested in a better life.
Anxiety — Lives in the future. Severe fear to believe in self. Unconscious screaming, “Something is wrong! Fix it!” We are finding that anxious people are so intuitive and powerful when we sense a conflict of conscious thinking to unconscious knowing it can feel like one is losing touch with reality. And you are. Intuit can hardly stand self-denial and unconscious will create sensations of panic when we do not listen to our own infinite wisdom about the present.
Rescue and Recovery — Dare to look at what scares you, really. Hypnosis and hypnotherapy work miracles for the anxious because in treatment they actually figure out for themselves how to listen and obey their own inner voice, and the answers feel like amazing empowerment for better living. 100% recovery is not only possible, it is probable for those who believe they can be healed. Sadly most people are unaware of recovery and end up drinking or drugging the right brain sensations instead, all the way to institution and death as we are seeing in epidemic proportions. Get to the root of the anxiety for complete recovery of life. If anxiety based on a recent traumatic experience is the only problem it can be cured in one simple hypnosis session.
Bi-Polar Disorder — This requires an entire reexamination on the female anatomy and life experiences. In many cases the diagnosis is brought on after the ingestion of anti-depressant medication, which is known to create feelings of mania in some people (people who don’t need antidepressants I’m thinking). As long as the diagnosis and pills are allowed to be handed out recovery is slim to none as the beholder succumbs to living down to the ideals of instability. The powerful brain drugs that are dispensed under the name of ‘safety’ will kill the spirit eventually, in almost every case. Until just a few decades ago crazy women use to be given brain surgery (Lobotomy) to remove her emotional being. I remember a girlfriend’s mother had her emotional response removed (located in the right temple brain) and my friend said she could slap her mother’s face and Mom wouldn’t care. She’d forget about it real soon if she did figure out she was insulted or hurt.
Isn’t that a nice way to live? The friend said her mother’s emotions were taken out when she was 20 years old after being forced to marry a man twice her age due to pregnancy at 15. Living now with 4 children in an abusive home it became too much to handle, and so she ‘left’ mentally and almost burned the house down. This woman was a danger to herself and others. Police were involved and the husband told the doctors if they didn’t fix his wife he would kill her. Doctors fixed mom for dad’s better health. The surgery was done in 1959 and a common practice in the times. My friend said her mother had two more children and never complained again. Life was good for everyone…else.
I remember the movie “The Stepford Wives” released in about the 1980’s, and have never quite forgotten at how powerful and mind numbing brainwashing can be when oppressed people are trained to be the servants for others, and no complaining from the wives because their ‘thinking’ belongs to someone else — they believe (consciously) they WANT to live for others.
There are many examples of religions brainwashing the masses into belief systems that utterly ignore female gender brains other than to be used for service.
Unconsciously we may create mental illness when we deny our own purpose.
Women are being diagnosed with Bi-polar Disorder (false, unsubstantiated diagnoses) and those drugs will make the victim not care at all about what was going on within the family, or life. Be glad we didn’t live in the 1940’s or 50’s where the powerful doctors could have removed your emotions forever without permission. But they still work to manipulate the mind into thinking we can do without emotions by using right brain stoppers.
Today we have what is called “Chemical Lobotomy’s” in the form of prescription psychiatric medication that anyone can get at any time with the right ‘story.’ Yes, some people need to be put away safely and drugged for better comfort while imprisoned. I have yet to hear a successfully medicated person living a happy life to old age, there may be a few cases, but they are certainly rare. Life is never smooth for the chronically mentally ill and so I am suggesting we stop telling people to give up to the illness!
If one believes in psychiatric diagnosis the hope for full life recovery is diminished because there is no solution other than expensive pharmaceuticals that often increase over time.
Little to no effort is given to figure out where the serious mood swings come from other than, “She’s a nut bar for no particular reason.” Having very little credibility in a world where women use to be considered property of men it isn’t too difficult to believe she is not worth saving if she isn’t taking care of everyone else the way she is supposed to be. I am not being negative here, it is time to look at some truth and let’s investigate these alarming throw away people whom I no longer believe were “born insane.” I witness full recovery of mental people who decide to forsake the others to save themselves.
Rescue and recovery — Figure out for yourself if you have a serious life threatening mental illness, or may have been wrongly perceived through the eyes of someone else. I am telling people without hesitation today to really check out the facts of the case before giving up as a mentally unstable person for life. See my next blog where I will outline many amazing women who were able to rise above their traditional roles and make remarkable contributions to society after being labeled ‘fruit cakes’ with no credible value their entire lives. These women are proof enough for me that anyone can escape oppression – and the mental illness philosophies that are keeping female oppression alive.
ADHD — Disruptive problem child who cannot concentrate or stay focused. A right brain oriented (more often male) bored to the core with the left brain training in the education system. Needs right brain stimuli and acceptance of the difference. She or he often has spiritual sensations and intelligence beyond the imagination. If allowed to develop naturally in any creative realm we will witness this child later change the world with their amazing creative brains. The greatest inventors and genius ones can be labeled as ADD or ADHD. Albert Einstein had early childhood learning and behavior problems in school but his mother never told him about the nasty report cards about how he was a dummy in the eyes of the school. Good thing, right?
Rescue and Recovery — If a child is unhappy in his or her learning environment find one that works. I understand not all parents can afford special education for their amazing child but if you create some questions with right brain imagination the left brain will find a way. Be willing to see there is a problem underneath the child’s acting out behavior. Understand children may only be negatively reacting to an intolerable learning environment. It is important to believe your own eyes when it comes to your child. If they didn’t act up at home then it is coming from someplace else.
Borderline Personality Disorder — The list of ‘symptoms’ in the DSM for this label is far removed from truth. They say she is a trouble maker, instigator, and drama queen. She is known for making up stories about good people and are unbelievable with their accusations. Freud diagnosed sexually abused girls who acted out as having fantasies about their fathers, living in an alternate reality. Can you imagine being molested and then told you are making it up? By respected science? Imagine being shamed to tears in a court full of disbeliever’s with suspicious ‘allegations’ of sexual abuse. Ignorance continues with dismissive thoughts as women continue to live without validation of horrific experiences while being re-victimized in the circuits (circus?) of the justice system.
This unlikable ‘borderline’ creature is a truth teller. She likely speaks up poorly because she has no idea how to articulate her needs since her needs don’t matter to anyone, anyway. In this woman’s story she is rarely validated with her thinking — and this can lead to feelings of internal rage. Like a volcano about to erupt the emotional pain is felt deeply. Listen, people do not like the truth. Truth can be too uncomfortable to even glance at, and so it is easier to sacrifice the life of a truthfully outspoken woman who already feels powerless than it is to investigate the truth she is trying to educate the world with eyes, ears and feelings wide open.
Keep in mind I do believe there is ‘real’ Borderline (Borderline Psychopath) people who have little or no feelings of fear, guilt, shame. I am suggesting professional opinions by mental health humans are fantasies made up to make the person feel she is okay being nuts because others are crazy just like her; see the list of symptoms? That’s the proof they have when they want someone to believe they are unstable people. The problem is you can show a list of anything to anyone and they will find a place of belonging if it reaches a need of the patient to be heard in some way. Any way.
Rescue and Recovery — She is on her own. People are unwilling to believe in the imagination of a BPD and there is no help in the current system other than drugs, but odds are she will refuse to take them and go on suffering without love or acceptance for herself. If you have been reduced this kind of judgemental diagnosis you must take back your own control. Find a way to love every part of you, even the difficult parts you’ve been trained to hate too. Practice speaking up and teaching people new ways to treat you. If you cannot find a way on your own reach out for help to build your confidence and self-esteem. An entirely new way to look at yourself is required because somehow mental conditioning growing up taught you self-doubt all the way to self-hatred like everyone else who does not like your ‘truth.’ BPD must learn to set boundaries about how they are viewed and treated by others.
Postpartum Depression — A mental condition only given to women who gave birth and yet adoptive mothers suffer with this so-called mental illness as well. Once again chemistry imbalance is blamed. Real cause is extreme mental exhaustion and depletion of the senses with increased life responsibilities. A new 24 hour clock to live by alone can make one sick. Mother often has to concern herself about work and finances as well as carry the weight of managing the baby, house, and everyone else’s feelings but her own. Unconscious doesn’t like self-neglect yet the well-trained conscious mind says she is not enough if she complains. Having to be super-human leads to collapse eventually.
Rescue and Recovery — Throw away the idea you must be all and do all at your own expense. Demand help and don’t feel guilt or shame while doing so. It takes two to bring a child into the world, not just one. As long as a woman believes she must keep up with impossible demands she will, until she cracks completely in some cases. Self care is needed if no one else seems to. Don’t be a victim, be in charge!
PreMenstrual Syndrome (PMS) — Mental disease caused by cramping and discomfort during monthly cycle of a woman. Too often something is very wrong in the organs of female anatomy and pain goes undiagnosed due to ignorance and lack of understanding and research. In addition to medical doctors unable to find a suitable solution for this very real problem. Employers are allowed to show no mercy or tolerance for the different biological make-up of female staff and provide nothing to assist in the need for some accommodation. Women have been conditioned to not speak of their ‘problem’ and is often shamed into silence for her ‘difference to men’ and can feel irritable because unconscious Intuit (one’s truth) will respond negatively to the thought she deserves to live in shame and pain.
Rescue and recovery — The shaming of physiological differences to men needs to be replaced with empathy (most of the rule makers are males who would never be able understand the unique needs of women – and so need to be educated). If no one else cares about your pain, YOU must care and take care of yourself in whatever way makes you most comfortable and happy. Use the right brain to imagine ideas for making yourself feel better during this time, and the left brain will find a way to make it happen for you. Two brains work together like magic when you believe in both of them!
Addiction — Inability to live sober in a world that seems upside down. At first some comfort is felt in the indulgence of drugs or alcohol, but after a while that right brain is going to reject that solution and create all sorts of added problems to the life.
Rescue and Recovery — First, get rid of any notion you are powerless. Find a way to believe in yourself and ability to control anything. Fill your imagination with thoughts of strength and empowerment. Addiction is self suicide, start recovery by figuring out why your life doesn’t seem to matter to you. There is a ‘learned’ reason.
The Intuit doesn’t like slavery. We are born free to survive, and thrive. However the best part of us (right brain imagination) goes unconsciously hay-wire when neglected and made to feel needy and dependent on others for survival. Dependency for happiness is simply not healthy for anyone.
I write this article to beg you to reconsider what might be really going on in society that is creating so much suffering and pain for women and children, and many men. Can we reframe this whole ‘women are crazy thing’ just for giggles and see if we can’t come up with a better solution to mental illness? How about we change everything right here and now instead of packing it in with acceptance of emotional torture and drugs?
Hypnosis and hypnotherapy are an amazing therapy for self-actualization. It helps one open the eyes to what the problem is, and how to find solutions to obtain happiness, peace of mind, and a comfortable sense of being. Control becomes possible when we believe in it for ourselves.
I have a feeling mental illness will be replaced with new exciting possibilities for all of us if we dare to allow all people the right to think the way they are born to think, not the way we want them to be for the better lives of everyone else.
Right brain can create a good or bad life. In spite of what we have been told about the imagination, why not deliberately go into the mind’s eye and use it to make yourself well again? “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” Said respected philosopher and writer, Napoleon Hill.
Find a creative outlet you enjoy. Colour with crayons, engage a craft you wouldn’t mind spending hours doing, learn a new art that fascinates you, listen to or play music, read or write. Intuit feels happy and peaceful while creating so if you are fortunate enough to work in a right brain occupation your life will be much happier.
Remember when you were a small child you use to play ‘pretend’ with the imagination, before that got all cancelled in school norms — why not go back and play pretend about retraining your own mental thinking. Imagine you are amazing for a change. Fake you matter if you think you don’t. Your unconscious and body will respond with love!
Believe in your own eyes, ears, and feelings. You wouldn’t eat something that smelled or tasted bad because the senses are connected to the unconscious part that will wake up in the event of a bad food. Learn to trust all of your own good senses! Just because a story makes sense (fantasies of someone else are only true if you buy into that line of thought) does not make it your truth. Some people are trained very well to not say a word about their own truth to protect someone else. Others know how to manipulate the sensitive’s senses for their own selfish needs and gratification. They use emotional manipulation of shaming, fear, guilt, and even anger to get what they want from a person who feels weak or vulnerable.
Stop Waiting and Start Creating
Hopelessness is bound to set in when we deny our own value and existence. Isn’t it time to wonder why so many mental cases are ending up sicker than ever with the current mental health treatment of people? Perhaps women need to put their intuition and imaginations to work on how to educate and articulate what we know, but do not get to say out loud? Maybe some men who understand their own right brain intelligence will feel safer if they too are allowed to be whom they are innately.
When the left and right brain are allowed to work together as equal partners miracles happen. When only one side of the brain is developed the sense of mental imbalance is the result. We are literally working with half a brain.
*Mental illness can be a serious condition that is passed onto children as they watch, listen and learn how to cope from parents. Please find a way to rescue and recovery if you have a little bit of hope left in you. At the end of the day, only you really can change anything and it takes a belief there is better waiting as soon as you ask for more.

- Conduct any typical meditation to relax your body deeply from head to toe while laying down on sofa or bed with comfortable pillows.
- Clear your mind by pretending to put worries, thoughts, mind chatter into a container, put a lid on it, and kick it over a cliff!
- Imagine yourself going down down and down, like in an elevator (counting down helps).
- When you know your body is deeply relaxed, heavy, doesn’t want to move for a while… you can begin to open your right brain (imagination, pretend part) for change.
- Still using your minds’ eye create an image of what mental symptoms you want gone and imagine yourself free of the problem. Like watching a movie or pictures you can sense, pretend, imagine…and make your image as vivid as possible. Face the situation as if you are really there. Now the fun begins!
- Pretend you don’t have the issue anymore and while visualizing this, monitor your feelings and adjust them so that you are no longer afraid, or anxious even as you are there right now.
- If you have difficulty conjuring up pictures in your imagination pretend you can see them like memories of things you have seen in the past. Memories (good and bad) make the most powerful images for us so please ensure you conjure up only the best, happiest, memories of the past. We do enough bringing up the bad memories in that part of our brain on our own which led to unhealthy symptoms to begin with in most cases.
To illustrate, if you want to lose weight take yourself into meditation, begin to imagine yourself in the size and weight that you want to be. Pretend you are already that weight and put on all sorts of clothes to show off your body in your minds eye. See yourself at work, at home, naked. Deliberately tell yourself you are fit and love your body (every time you hear yourself say, “I am fat” or something to that effect deliberately change it to, “My body is amazing.” We use our negative imagination to create horrible images of ourselves and this is a good opportunity to turn that around by doing the opposite in your mind.
Folks tend to spend a lot of time in the imagination – but not in a good way. Deliberately change your own mental images and begin manifesting new outcomes.
Wash away old conditioning, rinse and repeat and you will find your new behaviors unfold without even thinking about it. People who undergo hypnotherapy eventually find old negative thoughts and emotions are replaced with feelings of confidence, control, and peace of mind. It becomes a new unconscious way of thinking and feeling, and these new sensations will transform you into wanting to engage in new healthier behaviors and eating habits.
From within, so is without!

A lecturer when explaining stress management to an audience,
Raised a glass of water and asked ‘How heavy is this glass of water?’
Answers called out ranged from 20g to 500g.
The lecturer replied, ‘The absolute weight doesn’t matter.
It depends on how long you try to hold it.
If I hold it for a minute, that’s not a problem.
If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my right arm.
If I hold it for a day, you’ll have to call an ambulance.
In each case, it’s the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.’
‘And that’s the way it is with stress management.
If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later,
As the burden becomes increasingly heavy,
We won’t be able to carry on. ‘
‘As with the glass of water,
You have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again.”
The lecturer went on, but I would like to add that the burdens most of us keep, unnecessarily in most cases, are worry, fear, guilt, shame, anger, resentment, jealousy and envy. Those are our enemies. Those are our real heavies.
Negative thought leads to negative feelings that, if not tended to as soon as possible, can sit so long they become deeply painful emotions. And we all know by now that deeply painful emotions lead to pain in our bodies. We walk around so stressed and full of anxiety it is no wonder our physical bodies hurt!
Sometimes, the hardest thing in the world to do is to analyze and come to terms with our own feelings. We are so use to Secrets, Stuffing, Shame…the S word enemies and recipe for depression. But once you see what it is you must see; and deal with what you must deal with, you will be amazed at how strong, confident, in control (of everything) you are and feel as your just reward!
YES YOU CAN! Imagine it. Have it.
Had a great conversation with someone I consider to be a wonderful mentor Rob Hadley. It is amazing what he is doing with his clinic, Vancouver Hypnotherapy. Rob is also the owner of Harlequin, a hypnosis show he does for entertainment purposes for Dry Grad programs around the province.
But hypnosis and hypnotherapy are so much more than entertainment. It is a powerful process designed to help clients get to the root of what is disturbing them emotionally.
Rob and I are on the same page when it comes to matters of mental illness. We both believe other forces are at work within a person, than a vague promise that one has a chemical imbalance, in fact, the idea of the reduction of Serotonin as the culprit for instability is so disputed now, they don’t even bring it up anymore in most educated cases.
People have been hypnotized into believing something beyond their control is responsible for their extreme emotions, feelings of panic, unknown fear, a pending doom sensation. Sometimes the disturbance is very unnerving and scary with voices and hallucinations. I call it a disturbance, but is it really?
The pharmaceutical company’s propaganda has worked well: “You need these drugs because you have a chemical imbalance, just like a diabetic needs insulin, you need a pill.” And we listened to that! And we believed it without one thought to the real fact that you can get tested for diabetes and the insulin will show improvement. There is no such test for the chemical they say we lack in our brains for heaven’s sake! How on earth do we buy into that? Consider the marketing. The commercials, “Have you been feeling down, loss of interest in activities, ask your doctor….” And we all know when you go to the doctor you are going to get a drug. They have nothing else for us.
Our intense upsetting feelings, in my opinion, are signals from our unconscious mind, trying to break through the conscious mind, the critical mind, to tell us something. Have you ever had a ‘feeling’ you should do something, or not do something, and went ahead and did it anyway only to regret it? That was your smart unconscious mind talking to you! We maybe need to deal with something by tending to ourselves gently and compassionately. Learning the art of self-care is the most powerful talent you can do for yourself, especially after a loss, or a trauma, until you gain your composure back.
Or perhaps our unconscious mind is telling us we are lying to ourselves, keeping a disturbing secret to protect ourselves, or someone else. Recently psychologists are theorizing that shame is the seed of all depression. Whatever label you want to give for sadness, loneliness, loss of interest, lethargic…I see people lifting out of even the most serious of ‘mental illness’ when they approach it with entirely different eyes.
Whatever is going on, we may not know in the conscious mind, but trust me, your unconscious mind knows the truth and is waiting for your conscious mind to catch up. Our unconscious mind is our best friend. It is us, as perfect beings the way we were born. And she doesn’t like drugs!
If we let negative events and situations control us, and we let these feelings sit and fester for a prolonged period of time, we are bound to feel the weight of it physically after a while. If our stress is so great, and we do not take care of ourselves, it will get worse. Does that make any sense to anyone else?
It is a well known fact that stress attacks our organs, including skin. If we hold onto such feelings for any length of time, feelings of emotional instability will set in, and that emotional stress/pain will begin to attack your organs. Where do you feel your stress in the body when you are stressed? In the chest? Stomach? Head? That is where the energy is attacking your body and you will get sick in that area if left neglected.
The Similarities Between Anti-Depressant Medication and Heroin.
Anti-depressants can work for a while. After a time, it’s a physical addiction. Let’s not mince words. No more hiding. Just like heroin, psychiatric medication works for a while and then more often than not it becomes more of a problem, than solution.
As soon as one feels upset it seems the quickest and easiest answer is to take a drug to inhibit the emotional response of the brain. Why are we allowing this? For the most part we wouldn’t go out and take heroin if we fell sad. I know I never started heroin because I feared that after one ‘hit’ (or whatever they call it) I would be addicted. I did not consider how addicting psychiatric drugs can be!
Have you looked up the side affects to your brain medication lately? People tend to gloss over the serious warnings as if they are not even there. They don’t care. They are either apathetic by now, or in their mind the drugs are working for them because whenever they stop the symptoms re-appear, sometimes even worse than before. Lives are not ‘improved’ on any psychiatric drug. They are not designed to cure. They are designed to cover our feelings up.
An alcoholic who abstains from alcohol for years and suddenly starts again find their alcoholism symptoms are magnified drastically and drink even more than they did when they stopped years before. If we cover up our feelings with any kind of substance, including legal prescription drugs, the symptoms will come back like a tidal wave when you stop the drug. So, people choose to stay on heroin until they die, or are institutionalized. People are choosing to stay mentally ill, and on doctor ordered medication, rather than deal with the tidal wave of emotions that comes when we are suppose to deal with something.
Perhaps the general public is not keenly aware that the same kinds of side affects are found in people withdrawing from anti-depressants and anti-psychotics. Increased risks of suicide and murder are just one nasty thing to watch out for when you decide to stop taking the drugs. Emotions are extremely prickly when we stop taking our psychiatric medication and the degrees of severity depends on how much you are taking, and for how long.
It’s ugly, and the saddest part of all is that all too often people believe they are chronically mentally ill after they try to come off of their legal prescription drugs. I’ve heard time and time again in my practice that they need the relief, because every time they came off their life fell apart. I know. I know all about it, it happened to me. Along with six psychiatric labels and no less than 19 different types of serious brain drugs I know how long it takes to get your brain back to the way it was suppose to be before the chemicals.
It took me a full year to feel back to balance after the drugs the doctors had ordered for my mental wellness. A full year of hell, I might add. But I pushed through. I told a friend what I was doing. I was very careful. After I knew I was fully weaned i went for help by seeing a Clinical Hypnotherapist in White Rock. I engaged in 14 sessions and my life has never been the same since that time. I found myself. I found my inner power in hypnosis. I found God again in hypnosis. I learned how to deal with the eventual emotions we all feel from time to time, and I learned to never let them run wild again. My rewards for finally taking care of myself continue to astonish me. I am free! I am alive! I am at peace.
Life is going to happen with or without me drugged up. I can get a grip. I got a grip. I won’t keep secrets that matter anymore either. It gets me in trouble sometimes, but I’ve never felt stronger. I’m passionate about my message and I have good reason to be. And I’m excited that after years of NO passion, YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL BACK TOO!
But Schizophrenics are VERY SICK and need the drugs for safety!!!
Rob and I were talking about schizophrenia and how this ‘mental illness’ is only known as a disease in North America. In Africa, Rob suggests, people with schizophrenia are honored, and give information that the people believe as information from the spirit world. It is only in North America (or was it western world, Rob?) where we treat emotional imbalances as a sickness.
What if extreme signals such as auditory voices, visions, heightened vision, hearing, and feeling power, are really a spiritual emergency of some kind? What if we, a society who is based on science, are actually covering up something very beautiful with drugs?
What if the western world has it all wrong, and here we are, drugging to escape what our ancestors have had to feel and deal with drug free for millions of years?
I believe that it’s almost criminal to sell the idea that feelings of deep sadness, panic, fear, etc. are a sickness, and that is the ONLY information we are getting from our government…completely dis-empowering the weak even more.
Of course my first suggestion for help is to find a clinical hypnotherapist in your area who is trained in Regression and Parts Hypnotherapy. The change in you will amaze you! I am offering Skype Hypnotherapy Services to people who cannot find one in their area.
If you cannot afford hypnotherapy, I will suggest finding other ways to get to the root of what is bothering you so deeply in any way you can. Find a support group, or find a drug free mental health organization who can help. Help is out there, but we have to open our eyes to find it.
Please help me share the message that our government has to open up its’ eyes and see that the drug solution has become the problem. We need more help for people in despair! We have all of the resources and tools to help people in severe emotional pain, and yet all we do is feed them another pill. It’s a disgrace what we are doing to our people by ignoring all other treatment options besides medicating. . I don’t buy that answer for help anymore. Have I changed your mind at all?
