    I had a close friend of several decades who was himself a physician -- and seriously diabetic. His life was saved serially at least twice by two Doberman dogs he owned serially, each of whom had the ability to tell when he was heading into insulin shock whilst sleeping in the middle of the night. In both cases, after trying to rouse him, the dogs began to whine, then howl, then jump on his wife's chest to wake her up. She was a nurse, and each time she managed to take corrective action and save his life. The dogs remained devoted to him and he to the dogs for their lifetimes. Being a lifelong dog owner, really a dog person, I stongly suspect that their perceptions had to do with smell, for I never saw any evidence they were channeling some unseen person or power. Cheers!

    #10 No, thank you, sweet @Tricia Mitchell! I think you're right...maybe she was Australian..the woman that could smell PD?
    I know the smell of death well before it comes, but it has a perfume unique to each person, methinks.

    #8 to your part two @Tricia Mitchell. The loosing of vision is a precursor to coma, and I would imagine that was because my core temp was at it lowest 93F (95 being the standard hypothermia level). At that time in the US, I remained undiagnosed. Back in the UK, it was finally discovered the neuro-behcet's accounted for many of my problems.
    That said, we have a family curse: never say you're good at SOMETHING, or it will kill it stone dead. I mention that because, for myself, I might walk in danger, but I don't play with it!

    #7 yes, lovely lady @Tricia Mitchell - I guess I've had a few misses, but I'm still kickin' :) My Di was caused by some impact to the posterior pituitary gland, probably by a blow. This stops the correcting regulation of the kidneys, so they will find as much water from the 60% of the body's make-up to drain away: can't be re-stocked fast enough. The meningitis over the years has caused many small lesions in my brain, so I take the fifth wherever possible :)
    That said, death waits for no one!

    #12 Thank you dearest @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I'm grateful to you. Allow me some time to get some routine tasks out of the way & I shall take that time to also consider my response to your latest buzz, which I've already read & Harvey's replies. The depth requires time, like leaves in a teapot need time to infuse the water with their flavour (bit of a co-dependent relationship, as without the water and heat to unlock the flavour, the tea's potential would never be realised/released, and the water would remain bland). I think too much at times, Dr Ali & my 'challenge' is to be more present in my body! Have a wonderful day, dear friend.

    #11 Quite simply "WOW" (sorry) @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I am amazed at what's possible. That's incredible. Thank you for explaining PAS in a way I can comprehend. I don't yet know why or how, but my mind is trying to make connections with a woman who, once upon a long ago, I would've considered eccentric, then I changed! Iris Sparkes can diagnose what is "wrong" with people based on the vibration of the name they chose to go by (not our birth name). She writes their name on a piece of paper and places it under a light (she is trained in colour therapy & spent a period being taught by the Incas in Peru). She then sends distant healing using 'new energies' available on earth.

    I was skeptical of her abilities, but when she sent healing to my dogs, I saw the change in their behaviour. She also 'diagnosed' from the names of two people close to me at the time, that they had difficulty expressing their emotions. I kept an open mind and it was only some time after our call that I recalled I had described one (before choosing to practice compassion) "emotionally constipated" & the other used to self-harm due to a stated inability to express emotions.

    Perhaps what I'm being shown by your PAS research & Iris's work is that everything has a vibration and it's that vibration is stored in my recordings (& that's as much as I, perhaps, need to know?). I shall return later to contemplate the "identity of the sun" (which was mentioned in my astrology report of the last couple of weeks, so I may place it in that context in relation to your Branches of Wisdom buzz dearest Ali)

    #5 Yes, abbreviated as PAS. photoacoustic spectroscopy draw the graph between sound intensity and light wavelengths. If we trap somebody's breath in a test tube and cover the tube with a cork and then expose the test tube to light the trapped air will heat up. It soon starts making sound. Now, if the same person gets sick then the trapped air form h/h breath will make a different sound. In both cases drawing the graph of sound intensity with light wavelengths will show differing spectra. We shall also notice the formation of peaks characteristic of volatiles in the breath.
    I wish you all successes in your research dear @Tricia Mitchell

    #3 Thank you @Lisa Vanderburg I appreciate your compliment and for sharing this buzz. I vaguely remember reading something similiar, if it wasn't the Scotswoman, it was somebody who could smell illness. My friend claimed she could smell death on a person (I didn't disbelieve her, nor could I fully comprehend it, as it was years ago, before I was aware of the degree of my ESP). Yes, it's amazing that service dogs are being trained to sniff out cancers and alert their owners of impending epileptic seizures. At last, we are recognising the importance of our senses as dear Dr Ali stated in his comment #3

    Thank you both for expanding this discussion about the possibilities the olfactory sense can offer us.

    #2 @Lisa Vanderburg your language'ing interested me. I hope you don't mind me elaborating. You spoke about "finally" returning to the UK (I have no context for this). Losing weight. Losing your sight ??loss? I wondered. Losing your 'vision' metaphorically and literally. (Lost sight of the UK - finally returning?)

    Our external world reflects our inner, so banging your head, I wonder if at times you may have felt you were "banging your head against a brick wall"? (perhaps not; I'm not asking for an answer.)

    Hypothermia - when our body is in the stress phase of dis-ease, it's characterised by cold hands and feet, a lack of appetite and sleep.
    I've not heard of nephrogenic diabetes insipidus so I looked it up - it says it's due to a problem with the kidneys. The kidneys depending on which part of the organ tissue we focus on, are associated with LOSS or separation (kidney collecting tubules) or overwhelm (kidney parenchyma).

    Understanding what our bodies are adapting to, in terms of our beliefs, emotions and perceptions of our environment is not to blame ourselves, but to empower us to become aware of how we can positively impact our wellbeing. None of this occurs at a conscious level; it is not deliberate, but people (naturally) can become defensive when it's suggested they may have had a hand in their own health issues. I'm glad you're aware that moths are your body's way of getting your attention; you can introduce earlier 'warning signs' by communicating with your body to ask it to show you when it needs your attention πŸ’š

    #2 @Lisa Vanderburg thank you for sharing your story. Wow. You've been through a lot and it sounds terribly traumatic. I have to say my mind honed in on "after my last life-threatening event" and loss of vision (forever searching for meaning & patterns). I wondered if you've had a number of life threatening events (not knowing you, because we've only recently connected), but then I read you get meningitis a lot. Then I jumped straight to the question to find the why behind the why this was happening. It unnerves people. For example, a woman in a social media group asked for advice as to how to combat her lack of commitment in life & business - lots of people suggested strategies. I read it. '4' & '6' flashed up. I "knew" it was likely 4 & 6 years old. So I wrote a scenario suggesting the numbers "may be" ages. If mum & dad broke up around that age, and there was a lack of consistency, she may have made a decision, that became a limiting belief, that has been a theme throughout her life. To change the lack of consistency in her life & business, I would look around there for the root & change the belief. The reply was that they were very tough years. The strategies make it easier, but to change the outcome, my approach is find the weed & pull it out.

    #1 @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee you cited me in your comment: "I used a couple of techniques to get past the denial of what I felt to be true"- what you wrote here is an issue by itself. You didn't use the word run away. Is it denial? Is it run away? Is this the better solution? Why not face the past issues? I don't claim I have a sharp answer, but I see this as a very relevant issue to discuss.

    I scribbled a couple of ideas that came to mind as I read yours & Harvey Lloyd's comments on your buzz https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/ugliness-brings-beauty

    The truth is I can be dogmatic in search of the truth. My clients give me permission to do so. In that moment, it was my perception that Denise was denying the truth. Something I encounter is a 'knowing' when another person's heart - that knows everything their soul knows - is withholding truth. It agrees to communicate, then "doesn't know" or says "No" when I 'know/feel' based on past experience that I've tapped into information meant for that person. People who aren't a 'good fit' as prospective clients dislike my direct/persistent approach. There will be a day(s) when clients will show up to teach me that "my ego has got the better of me" & I will learn that sometimes I am wrong & hope my humility will be restored. But thus far, I always say that I am happy to be wrong (which I am) and continue with lines of inquiry I feel are true, even when a 'hurting' heart tells me I am wrong. The key is to make the heart feel safe to express the 'unthinkable/unspeakable' & feel into the fear, so we can find & clear the limiting belief.

    #1 Dr Ali, your comment gives me a window through which I am being to gain greater insight into the incredible man you appear to be. You have introduced me to a new term "photoacoustic spectroscopy" (I broke it down photo| acoustic spectr-um/-al| oscopy, but on doing an internet search, suddenly my grey matter is physically tingling). I would like to learn more, as I feel your research may be able to assist in providing a theoretical framework for some of my work. I created some meditation audios & during it there are, on average, 3 times when my stomach contracts to clear energy in the listener. This is recorded & some listeners report the energy is intense. Feedback has confirmed this to be true, but the HOW energy is recorded is still something I don't yet understand. I understand sound is energy & the feelings it evokes when in the form of music we enjoy, or get "pumped up to", while working out, but recording my energy & that triggering bio-logical & e-motional changes in listeners I lack the logic to explain.

    My response will be in a couple of parts dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. I wish to learn more about your breath prints novel (you've written 3!). I chuckled at the vision of a super sleuth protagonist in a stereotypical long rain mac! Yes, you're right, it could well be a scene in a drama!

    #1 Absolutely right there with you, @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee! There was a Scotswoman who claimed she could smell Parkinson's Disease, and through various research, she was right! Now dogs are being trained to detect PD and other illness.

    Wow @Tricia Mitchell - this is so very relevant; I have to congratulate you on your perseverance! We finally left the US for the UK after my last life-threatening event: nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, probably caused by me banging my head (didn't know until much later). I didn't realize this for several days (never heard of it). I was bed bound and losing weight fast. My family were terribly worried but I just put it down to a freaky bout of meningitis (which I get a lot). But as I got thinner, by skin felt like paper and I began to see many little moths - I thought they were feeding on me. In Florida with a body-temp at hypothermia I was becoming delirious and it came to me that I should measure my urine & water intake (I was drinking tons but was so very thirsty). I was beginning to lose my sight and I didn't want the family to know, so I did this, looked it up and had someone to my doctor.
    But moths remain both omen and not to be ignored...and the only thing I will kill.

    This buzz resonates so well with me dear @Tricia Mitchell. You remind me of my research on photoacoustic spectroscopy and my novel in Arabic "Breath Prints". How much we can tell from breath and even one part in a million of acetone or other volatiles i a amazing. Equally amazing is your super sense to smells. This buzz could be turned into a great scenario for a movie in which breath analysis reveals the antagonist.
    "I used a couple of techniques to get past the denial of what I felt to be true"- what you wrote here is an issue by itself. You didn't use the word run away. Is it denial? Is it run away?

    It is a shame that people are still considered 'daft' and medicated into oblivion for expressing what comes naturally...Sure, there are very many dis-eases of the brain that can contribute to such experiences...but sadly enough, I have long believed an enormous percentage of these so-called dysfunctions have been misdiagnosed and poorly managed with chemicals that exacerbate many underlying conditions that would otherwise remain stable...We still have a lot to learn.

    (part 2... I hope some day @beBee incorporates a character counter, to save on editing time postscript!) @Lisa Vanderburg you're right. Anything that isn't understood is feared. I was thinking about the various scenarios where our curiosity is quelled by another's fear & a post I wrote on LinkedIn came to mind https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/why-do-we-hold-ourselves-back-tricia-mitchell We need to adopt & encourage childlike curiosity. I shall look for the origins of the neuron quote - it's one I know & is oft' quoted, but I don't recall who to attribute it to. I thank both you & the delightful @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee for contributing to this topic.

    Rupert Sheldrake's TED talk about 10 science dogmas was banned & removed (he's interviewed about it here) https://youtu.be/kAuxXvNVhgA - an anonymous scientific board deemed it unscientific http://blog.ted.com/the-debate-about-rupert-sheldrakes-talk/

    What hope do adolescents have when biologists whose work blending science & spirituality & exploring telepathy is prefixed with 'quasi-' & 'pseudo-science' in an attempt to discredit their work? The courage to stand by our unfolding truths - especially those that challenge the status quo - is something that I feel (for the most part) comes with age, failures, and knowing that there is no other option left but to live our truths. Those pubescent years with raging hormones, still developing brains & social/physical awkwardness leaves little space to voice those visions or 'wild' ideas.

    Dearest @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee & @Lisa Vanderburg, thank you for keeping my buzz company 😊 I appreciate it. You both make valid points I recall when I became aware that I was "changing" or, coming into my own. I viewed the 'unknown' as some secret society. The people I was confident enough to mention it to, without 'fear' of judgement, would reveal they met with other like-minded people. Behind closed doors, where they could express their authentic self & feel comfortable to explore and speak freely. As you both state, there are consequences for acting or choosing not to act. The internal struggle of fear & madness; the external questioning of the other's sanity & fear.

    We all, at some level, wish to belong, feel accepted (our "sameness"), while expressing our individuality. It's the second time this morning that my mind has found its way back to Dr Ali's buzz https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/against-authenticity-and-free-movement Thank you for highlighting the dichotomy surrounding whether or not to speak one's truth - in not doing so, this 'may' express itself in our communication centre (e.g. persistent throat issues) & perhaps, that dis-ease with Self, "What's wrong with me?" may even create the "madness" internally. I cannot find a better way to articulate [external] perception of 'madness' (feared) vs.the real risk of [internal] bio-logical 'madness' as a result of a lack of opportunity to find a new 'normal', a reality that includes the 'paranormal'.

Sometimes, it is unsafe to unload as much as it it to keep the load on our shoulders. Life can be cruel sometimes when it gives us two choices, both of which are bitter.

    #8 @Cyndi wilkins you are perceptive. I did an in-depth muscle test after I made the connection between the dogs and my breathing. It went to some old memories concerning needy men I'd attracted into my life and yes, my self-talk at the time was that I felt I was suffocating under their neediness, which was the source of my irritation.

    While I'm extremely fond of my dogs, I don't see them as my babies, nor substitutes. When they choose to leave their physical bodies, if I perceive them as "my babies" that 'brutal separation conflict' can express itself as breast cancer. I've seen it in women who have perceived their jobs/businesses as their 'baby', when exploring the thoughts and feelings lying at the root cause of their dis-ease.

    You're right about the dogs being there first. I actually picked my second dog up as a pup on the day I dropped my ex-hubby at the airport. As I continue to work through various old issues, their individual symptoms, which correlate to specific events in my life, will heal, too.

    Appreciate your warmth and insight. πŸ™‚

They will stay close when we are sick; service dogs can alert their owners prior to epileptic seizures and others can sniff out cancer. They truly are amazing. I appreciate your suggestion.

    #5 Thank you, Harvey. I was thinking about following up with a tale of a dogwalker whose lab developed pancreatitis, which the vet said would be lifelong. I shared that in humans, the pancreas reacts with associations around territorial anger. I asked when it started and it was around the time his first child was born. So I asked if the dog was their "fur baby"? He said yes. The dog was feeling undermined by the human baby. I gave him some suggestions as to how to make his dog feel included and her pancreatitis calmed down and hasn't had a flare up since.

    Thank you for sharing your story about your labs & how they reflected your feelings towards your business.

    You're totally on point with this: "The mental view of this, the dogs remind us of service and whatever it is we are involved in we may have lost that vision of service and life has become a chore." There are aspects of being of service that are a chore. Mindset shift & frisbee at the ready.

    Though i can not speak to your specific situation, i can say that the couple of Labs we have had are more intuitive than we give them credit. Our labs could sense when our professional lives were not in line or when change was upon the company and frustration seemed to be the meal of choice. They would constantly tug on us for play are rubbing.

    Like you my first interpretation was they were annoying. Overtime i associated it, maybe a little to much so, that they new i needed a fresh start and the backyard and Frisbee was where i could find it.

    If nothing else they offered a comparison to when i was calm to the frustration of the day. The mental view of this, the dogs remind us of service and whatever it is we are involved in we may have lost that vision of service and life has become a chore.

    I am encouraged by the mere way you asked the question. Engaging in why is a problem these days. We tend to be stuck in because, if or Mr. somebody did it. My grandchildren invite Mr. Somebody into the conversation all the time. I have fun with it, but not at work.

    Great thoughts.

    #1 Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee thank you sonmuch for sharing this buzz; I'm grateful to you for doing so.

    Great invitation that I'm not quite ready to expand upon. I'm still sitting with the uncomfortable truth that through my own frustrations, I projected onto the dogs a desire for permanent separation (even momentarily) & am amazed at how quickly my body obeyed "Your wish is my command".

    Be careful what you wish for is sage advice. Even with training, we're always working on our own issues.

    How many singles enter into partnerships to avoid being separate from another? There are many who would rather be unhappily coupled than alone. Their separation anxiety would probably be higher, do you think?

    I need to dive even deeper, reprogramme me... thank you dearest Ali. I knew there was something I was unwilling to acknowledge. On walks, they pull me in all directions and that reflects how I've been feeling! Get that out of my energetic field so they can't pick up on it! Brilliant. Im grateful to you for posing the question!!

    Dear @Tricia Mitchell- you made me pause and think with this superb line of your sharing-worthy buzz "My once independent dogs have separation anxiety". You could expand on this. How many couples live in the anxiety of possible separation? If we watch what happens to dogs we may derive the necessary lessons. We should be aware to the doubts of separation and will with them accordingly. May be your experience with your dogs showed you insights on what to do.

    #3 "Perhaps it's time for informed consumers to enlighten their practitioners?" Great question. How do you facilitate that? There are some doctors who are learning and adopting a biopsychosocial model into their practice. But I think it's better coming from fellow colleagues of a similar standing. I was incredibly resistant to META-Health even though I was on the training course, because it challenged everything that I believed. "Symptoms are meaningful" and bacteria and infections having a bio-logical function didn't sit well with me at all. Fortunately, the trainers encourage you to go out and try to break the model. In trying to prove it wrong, time and again, one's trust in the framework grows.

    Eben Alexander is probably able to talk to medical students about the consciousness of patients in a coma, because he has the credentials of working as a neurosurgeon and the medical records of when the meningitis struck him and they were going to pull the plug on his life support. Perhaps the informed consumer needs similar credibility for the audience to shift towards embracing or integrating a new model of health?

    #2 Such an obvious question, @Deb 🐝 Helfrich that it hadn't occurred to me, "When does fear not get in the way of our wellbeing?"

    It's unfortunate that we avoid open dialogue about certain anatomical parts because we don't feel comfortable discussing them. When I used to be an interpreter, I'd be booked for a doctor's appointment. The client would spend the time in the waiting room explaining about the problem with their toe (prep for facilitating communication). We'd go in, the doctor would consult based on their toe, then they'd sit there, despite the cues to leave. There was something else. The real reason. It was always an "intimate" issue. Why is it that we feel so uncomfortable about voicing those concerns that we wait until we're literally out of time before we "blurt" it out.

    I'm glad you think the story is useful in many ways. Your observation on some doctors' attitudes: "Trust me, I'm a doctor" reminded me of the extreme cases, including Ian Paterson. I'm not sure if this will play overseas, nor if I like the reporter's style: https://www.channel4.com/news/ian-paterson-breast-cancer-surgeon-jailed-unnecessary-operations

    I had one consultant refuse to see me after I questioned him - I wanted to know beyond doubt and their literature was littered with maybes and unknowns. Perhaps, if you're the expert, and there are so many unknowns, you feel defensive when questioned? You're right about the model being broken, and a lack of funding (& staff shortages in the NHS in the UK) will only exacerbate the current pressures. Thanks for commenting.

    When does fear not get in the way of our wellbeing? I think it is an interesting question about how we shut ourselves down from talking about certain things, body parts, and stories of life experiences we cannot, yet, fully explain.

    I think this tale is useful in multiple ways. It shows how as medical consumers, requests for information can be treated contemptuously. Trust me, I am the doctor, is a very deadly attitude. Because it shuts down conversation. We have boxed diagnosis into such a tiny little space of time, that many people go through years of medical visits getting a lot of pills, and shrugged shoulders.

    How can we take charge of our own health if we don't understand why something occurred, or how our lifestyle choices, and overall wellness status impacted what has went wrong.

    We've made healthcare fit to assembly line efficiency models and we will stay sick as a society until we can see just how ineffective this truly is for such a complex bodymind system.

    #30 I understand what you're saying about feeling bad but, you're right, there is nothing you can do. It was a similar thing with this person, as you describe. I kept giving options: hypnotherapy, reiki, coffee & cake or walking the dogs - I made it as easy as possible, offering to pick her up and drop her off. She would only engage if it was about staying stuck. The emotional distress caused to all was too much, then the family backlash because I'd "deserted her", but I couldn't be around that manipulative energy any longer.

    If that friend wishes to come back, they will. If not, you were good enough to leave the door open but they have the choice whether to walk through or close it. Thanks for sharing @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher

    #29 I had to do that with a certain person over a year ago. I felt bad but there was nothing I could do to help and I felt she was self-sabotaging our relationship after she did the same with her family and a few other good friends. I left the door open but I haven't heard from her since.

    #28 thanks @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher yes, you summarised it well. I referred to her as an old friend because eventually I had to walk away when I discovered she had become emotionally manipulating. Recycling crises to get sympathy, which (I'd later learn from her daughter) had actually happened weeks earlier. She engaged when speaking about meds & MH professionals. She'd withdraw & fall silent if focusing on anything that may contribute to the solution, which meant facing her reality. The things she did were very damaging emotionally to those around her. For reasons of self-preservation, I eventually severed all ties.

    #27 Thanks for explaining that. Numbness which can lead to situational depression from real life experiences. A great support system can help people when they are going through a hard time. It sounds like she has a good friend in you. Life can be so tough and it can leave people feeling numb, I agree- meds are not the answer in cases like that.

    #26 hi @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher I recognise that each person has the right to choose the best course of action for them; I'm not anti meds. My old friend's issue was a social one with her neighbours. Her neighbourhood was a socially & economically deprived area. Meds, sadly, don't factor in any social elements, they just numb feelings, including joy. They take the edge off life, which, if someones been living on a knife's edge is helpful. But it also numbs joy, which is one of the contributors to lifting us out of feeling low. Thanks for replying.

    #24 That's sad to hear about your neighbor. Sometimes meds are needed depending on the severity of the illness but many times doctors either over-medicate or put people on drugs without giving other modalities of treatment a chance. Many times, meds should just be temporary, helping a person to get over their hump period while they receive other therapy.

    #23 how wonderfully refreshing @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher that you have an MD who is so aware & interested in healing in the widest sense of the word. He sounds great & totally supportive. When I read your quote of him stating that meds numb, it reminded me of an old friend. She had an ongoing dispute with noisy neighbours.

    The ongoing dispute shifted her existing low mood into depression. She felt unable to move home. So, the doctor put her on anti-depressants. The nuisance neighbour situation got worse, the doctor kept increasing the dosage.

    It was a social situation that medication could not resolve. Changing the environment, or trying to detach from the situation (with meditation) may have more beneficial than creating the conditions where a plan was needed to gradually reduce the dosage!

If they could 'prescribe' self training & holistic therapies, in consultation with patients/clients," I am lucky enough to have a Doctor like this. He refrained from giving me meds knowing I'm working with my therapist using EMDR and meditation, along wtih CBT. My therapist even has essential oils to use during the meditative part of our therapy which is at the end. My Doctor looks forward to updates because he's been to a few conferences on EMDR and found it can relieve symptoms for a long time unlike Meds that numb you and give you no chance for a cure... his words. :)

    #18 @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher thanks for reading this one and commenting. If I understand you correctly, you're suggesting looking at what others have already done, in terms of methods? I think it's a great idea. Personally, I tend to limit what I take on these days, because I spent a long time "gathering" certificates in order to "prove" I was "good enough" & didn't know when to stop. In my 20s, there would be rookie cowboys out in the field, doing harm & I would be cautious & conscientious, declining work because I wasn't qualified, then I wasn't experienced enough. It was only them making a "pig's ear" out of something that would spur me into action. So, I use the tools I already have& trust that I'll be shown what I need to know or directed to any new training I need.

    I wholeheartedly agree with you when you state, "Many of us suffer from lack of inner peace and I going to bet it's great to add layers of self training along with therapy if necessary and a Doctor's help. Why not, it sure can't hurt." Doctors practicing functional health understand the mind-body-environment (social) connection. If they could 'prescribe' self training & holistic therapies, in consultation with patients/clients, it would be so empowering. I think it all boils down to educating the people who are looking for a different solution. Thank you for sharing this buzz in the Mental Health hive. I appreciate it.

    #15 (Part 3) I am pleased that you've been able to release comingled events through physical releasing using the audios I recorded @Deb 🐝 Helfrich. You wrote, "But I didn't quite understand how intensely, even low level, sub-cognitive stressors and events can affect how we proceed through life." I don't think any of us do, until we stumble across them & then laugh at the absurdity of some of the beliefs. Here's an example I wrote about: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/foul-play-business-tricia-mitchell where a repeated pattern of successful businesses & wealth SLIPPED AWAY from a man, and the root was found in when he was 15 years old - the chance of a professional football career SLIPPED AWAY from him.

    It seems your travels are bringing you back to shore, Deb.

    "Hopefully these two different personal narratives can indicate a direction of sorts for those who will have to hack their own way out of their own jungle of memories and the wild things that grew up in their bodymind complex." I hope, too, Deb that others will benefit from our willingness to be open about our journeys & perhaps, be inspired to embark on their own travels to unravel & understand the patterns in their lives.

    #15 (part 2) I admire that you're able to stay out of words & just allow the process to unfold, as you unfurl. You capture the western approach to dis-ease so eloquently, "Unlike the current, standard, western model that seeks to converge any issue into a set of symptoms that require a fixed remedy, our mind makes connections in a free flowing, relevance-centric way."

    I don't know whether I've shared this video clip with you before or not, but this is my trainer talking about a woman who walked out of her job. Events eventually went back to childhood, being hit by a swing as a toddler & then the day that she was born. The belief? When things are going well, I screw it up for others (she was born on Christmas Eve & Xmas was put aside for her older siblings, because the new baby was here). Only when we become aware of the existence of a pattern, "Why does this seem to keep happening to me?" (although life does not happen TO us), can we take steps to change it.

    At 3.33 he starts to talk about the ONE BELIEF that we all have in our lives: https://youtu.be/iGCpEjobv-w?t=213 5.05 he uses a bamboo metaphor which illustrates your comment, "We often regard our random thoughts as just that, out of the blue, and yet there has to be some shared salience, for these thoughts to proceed in sequence. Uncovering where events 20 years apart hold the same emotional charge is a new method, to most, for uncovering how our brains have wired certain disparate events together." He introduces Diana's story at 7.43.

    #15 Dear @Deb 🐝 Helfrich I enjoy reading your comments. I'm glad you found this post very insightful. Today, I learned that the pioneer of the system I referenced here died, aged 82. My next buzz will be about his journey. Although I never met him, I feel emotional talking about his selfless contribution to the planet, without which, I'm sure I wouldn't be able to affix my spiritual approach to a scientific framework

    I love how your approach is away from words, because it was your way of escaping & your rich metaphor of moats and being an island suddenly brings to mind the saying "No man is an island".

    It's interesting, looking at Human Design (HD), my chart shows that I have to speak aloud to understand - so the internal healing conversation actually happens externally (I think aloud; I'm one of those "annoying" people who asks for advice, and in talking it through arrives at a conclusion, thanks you for your input, without you uttering a word).

    My "obsession" with seeing patterns in everything probably leads to a curious exploration of where this thought may 'fit', which also leads me away of just BE-ing and accepting "It just is". I am an investigator in HD terms, so I'm always going to try to understand what's going on.

    I don't think many people are aware of just how compliant the subconscious mind is. Set the intention & it will provide the answers, if it's safe to do so. Tell it to show you the events & it will. It's then our childlike curiosity that can explore the connection, if we wish, between seemingly random events.

    Pt2 - But the truth is that I wasn't fighting any specific villain or trauma, and I was unaware of how the very low attachment I received in my earliest days played out in my choices and preferences and ultimate withdrawing. Therefore, I didn't keep track of the steps of protection, I didn't even notice them at all. But the boundaries between me and the world went from a mote that a drawbridge could easily connect, to an ever vaster sea as my island of self drifted from shore.

    I find this a very insightful post, @Tricia Mitchell, as a model of how a personal, internal healing conversation unfolds. Unlike the current, standard, western model that seeks to converge any issue into a set of symptoms that require a fixed remedy, our mind makes connections in a free flowing, relevance-centric way.

    We often regard our random thoughts as just that, out of the blue, and yet there has to be some shared salience, for these thoughts to proceed in sequence. Uncovering where events 20 years apart hold the same emotional charge is a new method, to most, for uncovering how our brains have wired certain disparate events together.

    As you know, I have been experiencing quite a lot of tremoring as my body releases decades of comingled events, as I listen to your recordings. From the very first, I intuitively felt the power of TRE. But I didn't quite understand how intensely, even low level, sub-cognitive stressors and events can affect how we proceed through life.

    In my case, different than yours, I try to stay out of my mind and cognition, as much as possible, since my own way of self-soothing was my ability to retreat into the world of my thoughts. My mind palace was a comforting, fortified place that I spent years trying to escape, rather than just unsecuring the steps I took to secure myself in the first place.

I agree with you entirely, and also, if we don't see the world as it is, but as we are (attributed to the Talmud & others), where there is a lack of inner peace, our outer world will merely reflect that turmoil. I'm resisting making reference to a "political" leader who lacks the finesse and oratory skills required to convey peace to the masses. It all starts with the inner work on ourselves and being at peace with who we are & accepting responsibility for the decisions and choices we make in our lives.

    #2 I so enjoy reading your comments and your buzzes, @Deb 🐝 Helfrich. Thanks so much for engaging with this one. You contextualise it so well. Socialisation and being socialised - the pros and cons of group identity & needs versus individual identity & needs. It binds and is binding. It offers people strength, where they may be wearisome & collectively may be too strong for individuals to break free & express independent thought, where those opinions may wobble the foundations upon which the organisation is built.

    I totally agree with your viewpoint, especially that the socialisation aspect discussed has the potential to be more detrimental than we currently are aware.


    "I wish it wasn't the case that so many people trudge diligently for long swathes of time along the convention route, that offers panaceas to symptoms but no actual ways to reverse or repeal the disease state itself." I guess we are all on a journey of discovery & can exercise freewill as to the choices we wish to create or decision we wish to make.

    This 'socialization' aspect is far more devastating than we currently give it credit for, @Tricia Mitchell. In both ways - that it is comforting, therefore calming, to be with a social group experiencing the same struggles and also that we can be socialized to accept group 'wisdom' and therefore can be blinded to our own best interests.

    I wish it wasn't the case that so many people trudge diligently for long swathes of time along the convention route, that offers panaceas to symptoms but no actual ways to reverse or repeal the disease state itself.

    Right now, it tends to be those who finally can get angry, or who become abandoned by the system they put so much faith into, who can open to an alternate pathway.

    We have to stop teaching and enforcing that we are here to learn the rules, when we are here to grow, evolve, experiment and experience.

    Ah limiting beliefs. Dr Christiane Northrup MD challenged notions of ageing, Dr Bruce Lipton, cell biologist speaks and writes about the biology of belief. I wasn't aware of the story, but my work is centred around supporting people to release their limiting beliefs that create dis-ease in their body or unwanted patterns and behaviours in their lives. You're right in suggesting to people who aren't in the know, the power of our minds. Thanks for sharing the elephant story.

    #48 The story goes that five blind people were led to an elephant and asked to describe what an elephant is. The person who felt the tail said the elephant is like a rope. The one who felt the leg said the elephant is like a tree. The one who felt the side said the elephant is like a wall. The one who felt the trunk said the elephant is like a hose and the one who felt the ear said the elephant is like a leaf. None of them were wrong, they each had an incomplete picture of a whole elephant.

    Our minds do make meaning and stories, and this is an important function of a fulfilling life. I would just suggest that we begin to recognize a bit more that what we believe is really just a story - and find stories that create the kind of life we want to have. Look at all the stories we have about aging as the years seem to pass. What if we told a different story, like memory, eyesight and vitality get better with age? If we could get to believing things like that, our magnificent brains would then begin to follow those orders rather than the failing health and eyesight, etc, directives we currently give them.

    #47 Hi Sue, it's interesting, if we believe we are our stories, without them, who would we be? It's true, we are not our stories, but as many of us use them to define who we think we are, the fear in letting go of them, cannot be underestimated. Is it perceived by some that in doing so, they will become undefined? After a life of believing that identity is one's job, "Hi, my name is & I'm a [insert job title]" or one's position within the family - someone's brother/sister, mother, partner, child, etc. in giving up these stories, there is no guarantee that a safety net will catch us at the other end of any de-conditioning process.

    The mind is a meaning making machine. We will always seek ways to try to explain things. It is that which can lead to searching for truth. That truth can lead to consciousness. The truth about what causes dis-ease in the body & how healing is changing as the massive changes take place on earth.

    Great point about perception is projection. People are mirrors of that which lies within us. Yes, I recognise there are elements within that are resistant to change, yet it was unfair to continue working with clients when I was an interpreter, as my empathy for their stories waned. Thanks for contributing & no, I'm not aware of which elephant analogy you're referring to.

    #13 I appreciate this rich discussion, Tricia. I believe we are being called to release any and all of the stories that we use to try to explain things. Every person's story is describing part of the elephant. (Do you know that story?) Each of us is pointing at a greater truth that none of us can see yet. It is ineffective to mistake the stories we tell as being the ultimate truth. What we see and how we interpret what we seem to see is all projection of our own consciousness. I also have an education background and realized that I was not yet healthy enough to work in that field as I was continually seeing what was wrong, unfair, corrupt, etc. I didn't like the energy I was in when I was thinking and perceiving in that way. As healers and coaches it is very interesting from the projection point of view that we are perceiving people who are not ready to change. What does that say about us?

    #42 I was looking for where your comment fits, Harvey, & without an @mention who you were responding to (#33 isn't hyperlinked, but I think it's in response to #32).

    Politics and inept staff spring to mind. One of my managers was promoted by default & staff almost lost their jobs (as the person went off on a self-promotion jaunt around the deadline for the business plan. The department would've been without funding in the new fiscal year had another manager not stepped in & saved our team. Not stating my previous employers on my online profiles gives me the freedom to write, while respecting their right to anonymity... Perhaps the corporate "struggles" are universal?

    The politicians "muck about" with education and targets to the detriment of children's development, replacing play with training them in readiness for SATs tests with a focus on school league tables. There's reports of kids as young as 4 having panic attacks. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-39589910 I'm sure the issues are multi-faceted & the solutions require a multi-disciplined approach. I think Sir Ken Robinson has the right idea (& I can't remember which Scandinavian country has better academic achievement that the UK and the kids don't have homework, but there's an emphasis on creativity & play).

    "God is in each of us" - again, that negates God. Unless the plethora of war criminals, murderers, rapists, pedophiles and tyrannical despots are to be enshrined, worshiped and celebrated. ..... never mind - we already have a culture that does that.

    #35 #37 I am with you on a lot of the details, @Brian McKenzie, while seeing it from an entirely different and enlightening and joyful perspective. To sum up:

    God is not 'out there' but within every single one of us. The consciousness we experience is god. All the formalized religions just took this nugget and embodied it within people and stories based on the societal influences of that time/place. Most of them, in their own hierarchy, began to defeat their own initial quest to talk about this capacity every single one of us have that is incredibly difficult to talk about.

    We can certainly find stories and spiritual communities helpful or hurtful.

    So there isn't a god, then each of us is our own creator, when it comes to the utilization of our consciousness.

    Just like you broke away from the entire framework of american life, you can chose your own definition of joy right now and go on the ride of your life. You already do in many ways. But you see it as a reaction against, when a small pivot to seeing it all as a choice to be your unique self becomes effing empowering in its attraction of a tribe making radical choices, just like you.

    And all the sudden the grumbles become your own version of sharing the bounty of the path you are whacking for your own life.

    The change from I am forced/required to be this sort of trailblazer to I chose to be this sort of trailblazer - well it's hard, but really revolutionary.

    (And as in most of my comments, I am more trying to elucidate my own thinking, rather than advise you in any way, unless my words ignite something.)

    #33 I sense the apathy of the great thinkers /regulators who never did/do.

    Education has not changed but rather constantly and consistently reveals the layer of strata in the wrong direction.

    We see corporately the strain of diversity in large organizations. Yet somehow we feel 2000-3000 students on a single K-12 campus can be managed.

    #35 Everyone has a narrative I could pull or my Southern Baptist. The bad baby sitter and two outlaw brothers. But that would still be choice

    I understand your choice from your narrative but have you not yourself created your own vaccum?

    My main point to existence is you have choice. Either you let your narrative choose or we can get above our animal existence and choose ourselves

    Besides under your paradigm what difference would another choice make, nothing to loose.

    #7 I admire your openness, Deb 🐝 Helfrich about the entrepreneurial journey and you make a very good point that what you've downloaded from your parents comes from an era when "having a job for life" was the norm.

    You're absolutely right that we need spotters to show us what lies in our blind spots. If these beliefs weren't hidden, we'd probably be living in a very different world today. An existence where people are conscious of their freedom to choose.

    Yes, the speed of the questions are to keep up with the rate at which information becomes available to me about a person, in a "hold on to your hat; you're in for a ride." sort of pace.

    Great quote here, Deb 🐝 Helfrich "Outside our habits, our rehearsed responses, lies freedom." Thanks for adding further to this discussion.

    #37 Hi Brian, I'm going to bow out and leave others on this thread who wish to interact with you to do so. I've spent many years trying to convince others, much to my frustration. I recognise that this was about trying to get others to see life from my map of the world, instead of respecting their map and their journey.

    You are, of course, entitled to believe what you want. However, as a Highly Sensitive Person, it is in my best interests to not interact with people who have a, dare I say it, negative outlook. Energetically, I pick up on those vibrations, even over the internet; even through the written word. I then have to spend time 'discharging' other people's energy. The reason I left my old profession is that I was supporting people who had no desire to, or were incapable of, change. Today, as I am still working on patience & letting go of frustration, I choose not to be around people who choose to disempower themselves.

    All the best

    #32 (sorry, I was testing if I had maxed out the characters permitted on a comment) My point is that in addition to your comment about many children lacking a frame of reference for a day at the beach, for some, it may have been where some childhood trauma took place. I guess it's a bit like hypnotherapy scripts, instead of defining where one's happy place is by describing it, it's self-defining what and where our happy place is (but that probably involves differentiated learning materials and people are already working under time constraints). Actually, it makes me wonder whether the experience of your children is due to socio-economic factors/deprivation or geographical location...

    I wasn't aware of the mind when I was working in the field. I only knew that we had a finite amount of time to help students turn it around. They arrived at college, after their school teachers had written them off. The trick was to give them enough encouragement to discover for themselves where their plateau was, instead of accepting somebody else's opinion.

    It was a balancing act - promoting independence, yet acting as a safety net in the background, ready to step back in to support communication between them and their non-deaf peers, to enhance social integration. Sometimes support was a hindrance and encouraged dependence - both parties thought they couldn't "do it" without you, until they tried. One of the problems I had managing staff was that there was a conflict of interest in promoting independence and the support worker's vested interest (financially) in students being dependent upon them.

    In terms of developing skills, some students came to us with qualifications that didn't match their knowledge and ability. They'd had 'sympathetic' support workers who'd done the work for them. That denies them the opportunity of acquiring the skills, gives them an unfair advantage & certainly doesn't prepare them for the world at large. Thanks for your comments.

    #32 I agree with your comments about special education. I can only refer back to my experience of the individuals/groups I've worked with: Deaf people - with Learning Disabilities; - with Mental Health issues, - with dual MH & LD, - with a visual impairment & those in forensic MH services. What was common was sensory deprivation - I'm speaking in terms of pragmatics, not of Deaf sign language users being a linguistic minority. Whether it's introducing a new concept or communicating letter-by-letter on a DeafBlind person's hand a community meeting discussions, the building blocks of knowledge are often missing, so we backfill, before we can give access to the information conveyed.

    The lack of auditory memory (speech sounds for reading and writing) & the fact that sign language is syntactically opposed to written English means that literacy & story time are problematic. That's compounded by the failure of the education system (Older Deaf people were taught speech & language therapy at the expense of their education, so they could be assimilated into society and work in factories, but had poor literacy). Abuse at residential schools for the Deaf, many attended aged 3 or older & weren't allowed to sign (bonding; attachment theory) & elderly Deaf people knew each other by the number they were given at school. Schools were so far away from home, they only returned during holidays. 90% were born to parents who weren't deaf, so communication & isolation within the family was an issue. MH issues in the Deaf community was higher than in wider society, when I was working in the field.

    Today, depending on the education authority, those in mainstream education can be supported by staff with basic or conversational level signing skills - insufficient to grasp & convey concepts & curriculum subjects. Hopefully, the reading age for school leavers has now risen above that required to read a tabloid.

    #29 Thanks for your feedback and comment of the comment. We call the folks you seek 50 percenters. The folks who are on the edge of change and are becoming seekers. They know that something is out there and they want it but lack the process map of understanding the journey.

    In special education you are dealing with a childhood narrative that is difficult to get through and give tools of success. Many of my own personal journey has been to understand how the brain evolves within society and then how can it be changed. From behavior management to the skills (or lack of) that lock the brain in a position, to understanding how reading is one of the major contributors to anti-social behavior.

    I read a study done by a college in England and a statement crushed me. The author used the sentence, "A day at the beach." This sentence conjured up childhood memories, my own family memories and a narrative of pure joy. The author went on to speak to the fact that many have no narrative of this nature. So A day at the beach meant nothing.

    The contrast for this is a teacher who has experienced the joy of the narrative teaching a student who has not. This has been my journey for the past ten years. How to make simple words mean something for the person who has not experienced that joy.

    Increasingly i am sensing that the 50 percenters are becoming less and less as the Matrix grows within media. Why seek higher meaning when the path is laid out for greatness on TV. But as i sense in your walk we will keep looking and promoting the greatness of humanity.

    Many people today are suffering from many conditions that traditional medicine has not seemed to help alleviate or cure.

    Which is sad when there are alternative solutions through natural methods that most have either not heard of or tried.

    That is why I have brought on Jack Miller, a Certified Traditional Naturopath (CTN) of Natural Health Sciences of Arizona, LLC- to discuss a couple of the natural therapies he offers at his clinic in the hopes of educating listeners on other options. We will be talking about the use of Laser Energetic Detoxification & Oxygen Steam Sauna along with what to look for when choosing a Naturopathic Practitioner.

    I truly believed that when people are informed with good information especially when it comes to their health that they are more empowered to take control of their wellness outcomes.

    Jack Miller has over 20 years of experience in the natural health field and is a professor at the Academy of Comprehensive & Integrative Medicine (ACIM). He graduated from a well respected school of natural health with the highest honors in 2010, after having fully recovered from end stage Lyme disease as a patient of Dr Cowden in the 2003 Lyme pilot study. The comprehensive nature of that study taught him the power of holistic medicine at that time. His clinic has had significant documented success on helping many clients with various conditions.

    I watched a FB live today by a fellow healer. She spoke of forgiveness. Forgiving situations. I nodded in agreement. But then I found myself disagreeing when it was suggested that you don't need to forgive the person, the perpetrator.

    Here's why I disagreed:

    1) If we don't forgive the person, then we're still holding on to the event. The only person that's going to hurt is you. Forgiving the other person allows us to heal. That's not saying it's OK what they did. It's saying, I deserve to let go of the barbed wire I've been holding onto for years, so the wound can finally close.

    2) I thought about the Ho'oponopono practice - IF we are all One, and we reflect each other, then we are all responsible for creating the world in which we live (an idea that may be unpalatable & one we may not wish to digest, yet if we create reality by our thoughts, collectively we have all contributed to the world we live in, intentionally or otherwise) https://hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/How-Dr-Hew-Len-healed-a-ward-of-mentally-ill-criminals-with-Hooponopono

    3) We need to forgive, not just at a heart level, but at a gut level, too. The gut is where our identity lies, our self-preservation and is also responsible for our mobility - taking action. If we want to "move on" from events in our lives, not let it determine who we are or are becoming, then we need to "digest" forgiveness.

    I've tried forgiving the events, but not the person, and for me, it didn't work. If you're finding it hard to let go of a situation in your life, try "playing" with Ho'oponopono for 21 days (that's how long it takes to create a habit).

    #2 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich I love the fact that Rob Scaer's a neurologist yet acknowledges what animals & indigineous tribes can teach us in releasing trauma. If you think about it, movement & sound both shift 'stuck' energy (soundwaves can be used medically to dissolve kidney stones), so the components of rituals makes sense.

    Have you watched his video about how the brain works in trauma (the one with the polar bear shaking the trauma of being sedated & tagged out of its Autonomic Nervous System (ANS)? Yet, when people go into shock and start shaking, the first reaction is to hold them still & comfort them. Their body is trying to discharge it from the ANS.

    #4 Ah, @John White, MBA I think breathed some life into one of my posts (the synchronicity one). I also recall @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee writing about whether our beliefs and emotions alter our body's chemistry. Mick's world will have altered to make his reality fit his beliefs. I know with one of my patterns - once I found the belief - my body would shut down, overwhelmed, and I'd fall asleep. That way I could never work to the degree where I'd exceed the financial threshold that was linked to a traumatic event that had occurred 30 years earlier in my life, when I was 16! It literally wasn't safe to do so, according to my subconscious.

    I think there's a lot of restorative work that could be done around safety and security in childhood, which would benefit adults. There's something forming in my mind about choosing relationships where people will feel the 'familiarity' of insecurity because it replicates the only way of being that the person knows. By healing the 'inner child' people could then choose more nourishing relationships, perhaps....would it contribute to reducing anxiety figures??? Who knows.

    Thinking about his some more. It is actually rather safe to say that homelessness is tied in some way to our childhood dynamic. That is, after all, when we learn the definition of home. And the eventual state of having nowhere to lay your head happens to people who either in reality or in their perception don't have any people where they find themselves who they can turn to in times of illness or financial hardship.

    I would think that it would be an interesting proposal that someone would fund to see if working with you to uncover these memories and long-buried thoughts that brought people into a very precarious way of life.

    At the absolute least, the power of an open, honest conversation with someone who is curious and able to see everyone's humanity is worth funding.

    #1 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich thanks for contributing your wisdom. This was the first time I'd actually seen this TEDtalk. It's amazing, though no surprising that those imprinting years in the womb and particularly in the first 7 years affect us throughout life until we look for the 'programme' and update it. Your comment, "The part that moves me the most, is just how quickly all of the ills of our world will shift when we decide to grow a new generation of humans without undue trauma," reminds me of an article a fellow EFT colleague shared. If I can find it, I will share the link. It warms my soul to see what can rise out of tragedy, conflict and PTSD, such as the work in Rwanda, like you say, and also the Tapping Solution's work in Sandy Hook & with war veterans.

    When I read your comment about my Street Coaching, it reminded me of the various programmes that take to the streets - David Blane & other magicians. Then I thought, what if people don't want to reveal intimate details of their life on camera? Then I remembered Embarrassing Bodies. I don't know if it aired in the States but they're 3 doctors who travelled the country & holiday destinations with a lorry/container that's kitted out as a consultation room, and invite strangers in for consultations where intimate examinations are filmed. The payoff is that the patient gets their embarrassing conditions that their GP or consultants have been unable to resolve treated privately. I guess the difference is, people can see or feel the symptoms, and are at the p'll do anything to get rid of their pain points, whereas I'm not medically trained and these pain points are often hidden.

    17/05/2017 #1 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    I've watched this TEDtalk a few times. It is a important supporting reference. Of course, what happens to us as a child, most especially trauma & events that register as traumatic to young brains. will affect the patterns of a lifetime. The part that moves me the most, is just how quickly all of the ills of our world will shift when we decide to grow a new generation of humans without undue trauma. And for whom we actively work to help them heal the trauma's that are inevitable. There are many stories among the EFT community about work in Rwanda that backs up how feasible this is. We can work on a bunch of labyrinthine plans that will likely fail, or we simply grow a new set of humans trauma-free.
