Stress is feeling impotent to execute a plan or desire. It is the ultimate in feeling thwarted against the capacity to discharge an expectation into a state of realization. In health, it feels like, “Ah, I did it! I put the effort in and there it is, a big beautiful bouncing baby project, isn’t she lovely?! I’m so proud! Now I can finally bask in the glory of utter fulfillment!” As a healthy person, I will have perfect trust and faith that my effort will ultimately lead to fulfillment of a desire; it is just a matter of time and it will. I can trust in my healthy will and wisdom to get me to this state of full actualization. Right?!
However, if your history with stress indicates that the arrival point never seems to come to fruition, it’s outside your reach, some insidious force seems to pervade that sabotages the whole damn thing, leaving you feeling like a bloody failure. This cyclical pattern is just playing itself out yet AGAIN!! Guilt, victimization, and self-hatred mounts and you do your very best not to take it out on those you love. It is so hard, though, as the frustration seems to leak from your nostrils and ears. You feel yourself seething with it below decks.
Also, you notice that weird things are starting to occur in your body; you haven’t slept through the night in months, your hair may be falling out in the shower, you’ve been having mild gallbladder attacks or kidney stones , your sex drive is dried up and mostly gone, you’re suffering heartburn, and your craving for sweets is off the charts, you’re peeing like a racehorse way too frequently. What the heck is going on?
You feel the anger and frustration mounting. Perhaps it is a pattern around finances, the full realization of one’s inner value in the external ambient. Perhaps your inner milieu wants that juicy job sailing tourists around the world, but for now you’re stuck as a palliative care nurse (true story, btw). The prevailing feeling being that you trained for that job and you’re resigned to remaining at it until you can magically conjure the readies to make the transition. Perhaps you’re still living out of your parents’ expectations. On paper, though, it feels like you may never garner the gumption or resources to make the leap. For now, your feet are stuck in cement. Argghhhhhh!
Although you have the pictures of sailboats plastered to your walls at home, it still feels like a far-off pipe dream. What about all those affirmations, “I am sailing the world, I feel the ocean breeze on my face, I am cutting the jib!” And then, the reality of waking at winter’s dawn to catch the bus in the dark and cold invades your spirit with the most brutal of realities. You feel raw, sore, and jagged inside. What happened to that wee kid in you that used to race with the wind on your bike, build forts, and dream about becoming a rock star?!
You ask yourself, over and over again, what am I missing? How come everyone else seems to be realizing their dreams, but I can’t seem to get past token actions of having bought the organic sunscreen? Am I not deserving enough? Haven’t I done my time? When is it my turn to fully actualize my essential self and my dreams? Does this sound familiar to you? Are you tired of hearing the tirades of angst in your head?
We’ve got you! We lived this matrix prior as well. We know that stress is the #2 killer (just after allopathic drugs) in North America. We’re going to help you get out of the pain and suffering that has you secretly rocking back and forth, sucking on your thumb in that broom closet or bathroom stall when you think no one’s looking. We see you and we also have the tools to help.
There are 3 jurisdictions of Heilkunst Medicine. The first is Regimen (nutrition, hydration, dormition, recreation, coition). Basically, you must stop messing around! Cut out the refined sugars and carbs, and eat more for your blood type. This is really critical. We have other blogs (3 Streams in Heilkunst) on why this is, so go read those if you need further justification. Start drinking 2.5 – 3 litres of pure spring water per day (ABC’s of Healthy Regimen).
Start exercising for your blood type (Exercise for my Blood Type) and playing at a sport you love. I’m a “B” blood type and I love weekly hikes up into the hills where I live, yoga several times per week, and my meditation practice. Also, start winding down earlier in the evening, reading that self-help book or perhaps a novel about 45-50 minutes before bedtime and lights out. It is really important that you kill the lights and computer stimulation so that your autonomic nervous system can depart gracefully into sleep.
Sex is brilliant! If you’re not thusly conjoint with a resonant beloved partner, sex on your own is pretty delicious too. Love on yourself in the same way, using the same gestures that you would have your supreme lover engage with you. The idea being that you can’t wholly plumb love in your ambient until you’ve nailed down those delicious romantic gestures from inside. Love and romance is fostered from the inside out.
Also, the crazy thing is that while fever invokes a healthy immune function in a child, sex actually is the healthy expression of rage, anger, and stress in an adult. The more you teach your body, through pleasure, how to feel tension, charge, discharge, and then relaxation in its cells and the autonomic nervous system, the more it will recall this same gesture in everyday life. If you’re having trouble, though, executing through intimacy we can help with character analysis and resonant remediation.
The second jurisdiction of Heilkunst Medicine, is medicine proper. It’s peeling back the timeline onion of your stress-riddled adulthood, which no doubt stemmed from how you were raised as a child (Sigmunda would agree). In many cases, it is also anchored in your childhood, the genetic miasms, chthonic fears and ideogenic beliefs. It can take a bit of time, in conjunction with pathic remedies like lycopodium (key rx for impotence), aurum metallicum (working with little reward), sepia (‘if someone asks me for one more thing …’), staphysagria (repeated patterns of victimization), lachesis (guilt, resentment, shame) and ignatia (long term grief and disappointment).
We also employ brilliant flower essences like cherry plum (where your back is seemingly against the proverbial wall), white chestnut (for you cycling through the same old patterns over and over again), larch (for a lack of confidence), etc.
The third jurisdiction is therapeutic education, or Anthroposophical (study of man) Orgonomy (addressing armour/beliefs). This is the area where we help you to stop reinfecting yourself with the old states of mind that no longer serve you. This occurs more in tandem, or after, the diseases are mostly cured and your timeline resolved. Going after your character structure for why you felt you needed to live feeling thwarted and impotent in the first place is part of an illusion of belief. Poverty consciousness (not just about money) is, after all just a state of mind, albeit a powerful one. It can be cured just like the others.
Start, perhaps, by taking a look, at the following resources and see how they impact on you:

Conscious creation plays a very big part in replacing the subconscious program of feeling victimized by stress-filled circumstances. You are ordained with the capacity to self-rescue yourself from the habitual armouring, perpetuating chronic beliefs that you’re not enough. It is not about more doing or effort! It IS about having the health to identify where you’re wrong thinking patterns exist and having a deep desire to change them.
The final frontier of Heilkunst Medicine (or Romantic Science), the complete medical system, is the realm of using your very own God-imbued wisdom to excavate you from your mired beliefs. This is not the illusory or superficial “law of attraction,” although the gesture came from same roots, with medicine and regimen, you can more permanently exact the life that you’ve always wanted for yourself by “BEING” the answer you want to “BE” in the world starting now, right this minute, impressing this new data onto your subconscious and employing it as the change agent on your behalf. Your ambient will buck up to this new expectation, it is the LAW of RESONANCE. The thing is, do you have to strengthen your muscles of FAITH to hold the charge? Are you ready?
My new book, soon to be released on Amazon, speaks more liberally to this process:
