Television, Heart Issues, Diabetes And The Cancer State Of Mind

“Watching Tv” by Sandra Vos

It would be easy to tout facts such as 80% of sedentary American adults watch 3.5 hours of television a day. I could also describe how 92% of all Americans have a television set in their home which consumes more than half of their available leisure time. These facts are fairly well known.

However, a study done at the National Cancer Institute where 221,000 active individuals between the ages of 40-71 years of age still showed a predisposition to heart disease and cancer where T.V. was a 3-4 hour daily habit. This may not be such common knowledge. Also, did you know that chronic television watching is linked to incidences of  diabetes, obesity, influenza/pneumonia, Parkinson’s and liver issues as well?

Now, if I open the pages of Michael J. Lincoln’s book, “Messages From The Body” and review the reasons for a few of these diseases cited above, you might perceive the link to how watching television precipitates the state of mind before the disease manifests on the physical level. Here are excerpts from Lincoln’s book from each section specified:

  • Cancer – “Powerlessness-rage.” They feel overwhelmed and devastated, with a sense of intense emptiness in their life. There has been many years of inner conflict, guilt, hurt, grief, despair, resentment, confusion and/or tension surrounding their deepest personal issues. It is connected with feelings of hopelessness, inadequacy, helplessness and self-rejection. They see no possibility of relevance or effectiveness from the Cosmic realm. They have disharmonious attitudes towards parts of themselves that they don’t want to deal with.”  
  • Heart Issues – “They are not expressing and manifesting love with others-now and/or before. They operate out of scarcity assumptions and the belief in constricting limitations. They tend to judge themselves a failure and therefore work furiously to accomplish on the job and to dominate others. They are full of tension, anxiety, resentment and suppressed aggression. Underneath, they are frightened children full of regrets, sorrow and remorse for a life wasted and a “vast wasteland” experience. They are the product of highly judgmental and demanding parenting that never gave them the message that they were good enough.
  • Diabetes – “Boulevard of broken dreams.” They are longing for what might have been in their life, and they are in a state of emotional shock. They have a deep dissatisfaction with their life and an accompanying self-dislike. There is intense sorrow and a sense of starving to death in the midst of plenty, of being surrounded by most of the things that have meaning without their being available to them. They have a great deal of despairing desperation, depression and demoralization. It’s a “. . . but not for me” attitude that is often accompanied by a fair amount of feeling very sorry for themselves. There is no sweetness left in life for them, and there is insufficient joy in their life.

Our predecessor, Rudolf Steiner, was a Goethean scientist who spoke liberally about stages of development in seven year cycles. He cited that when a child is first born, they’re most focused on physical development. It takes a lot of internal, mineral, forces to grow a body from its total dependency on Mom and Dad to be able to first sit, then crawl, run and then at 50-70 pounds at age 7, dribble a basketball with any kind of coordination.

From the ages of  7-14, Steiner speaks to how we are more etherically developing our capacity to receive impressions. This is the time in our development when we’re naturally and resonantly ready to be engaged more with art, story (fairy tales and putting on plays), music, eurythmy (a type of rhythmical, dance-like movement mostly found in Waldorf Schools), creativity (watercolors, drawing, sculpting, etc.), hand-work (knitting for metabolic limb coordination), sport (healthy competition) and fully actuating our imaginal forces through the etheric body.

From 14 to 21 we develop our astral bodies through actualizing our desires, goals, dreams through fantasy and socialization. This is when we experience the onset of puberty and hopefully a healthy unfolding of our sexuality. However, “Waldorf educators saw a direct link to this astral body and the watching of television. The scenes, the lack of imagination involved, and the topics covered on most channels would obviously bring on the astral stage of the body at an early age from the outside in. This was one reason that television was banned from Waldorf schools. Modern researchers, however, have just recently made this connection when they recently announced, “Watching Television may Quicken the Onset of Puberty” (Dr. Laura Markham, 2006).

In Markham’s article, based on 35 different research studies she states that this connection has a lot to do with the hormone melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland in the brain, which plays a key role in regulating the body’s internal clock. Light emitted by television screens suppresses melatonin levels in the blood, which disrupts sleep patterns of children and teens as well as the age at which they enter puberty. It is also interesting to note that the problems of early-onset puberty have baffled researchers since 1950. This was the same date in which televisions became widely owned in the United States.”

On one Waldorf school website from Ireland they state, “Television, as well as film, videos, DVDs, recorded music, computers and electronic games have a very powerful effect on children. It can take several days for the effects of a single video to wear off. If children are watching every day, the effects never wear off at all; many children now speak a lot of the time in ‘cartoon’ voices, make ‘sound effects’ to accompany their jerky movements (kicking, punching) and compulsively repeat lines from videos they have seen over and over again. This is now seen as normal childish behavior, but it really comes from these media, not from the children themselves.”  I once served an Autistic child who could “script” word for word every Disney movie she’d ever seen!

The other consideration is that we need time in order to process impressions as our thoughts go through a cycle of maturation. Watching television inhibits this natural process. Steiner stated that, “What is learned more slowly at any given age is more surely and healthily absorbed by the organism, than what is crammed into it.” (Spiritual Ground for Education by Rudolf Steiner).

This is also why homework is not promoted in Waldorf education, to give ample time for a child to wholly integrate all of the art, story, plays, music, and movement they were engaged with from the inside out to settle down into their etheric mind (where memory is stored) during the remainder of waking consciousness into the sleep consciousness.

“Noam and his lemon-baby doll” by Michael Radwin

They will wake the next day full of reflections from the day before, having crystallized their impressions into thoughts. Children become sick, first mentally and then physically if this natural rhythm is not allowed for, given that the externalized impressions will override this capacity for thinking. The child’s head, instead, will be filled with images from video games or television. Once again, his own concentration and imagination will have been denied him. He’ll deem that life occurs, out there in T.V. land, not internally in his own world of self-actualized and fructified dreams. The application of a properly threaded Will (male gesture) and Wisdom (female gesture) will be hobbled.

The other problem is that if we’re told at allopathic schools that there is little room for the bubbling up of our internal creativity and that we have to succumb to standardized testing instead, we will begin to feel the light go out on our internal capacity for imagination and freedom of expression. A generalized malaise, and “why bother” attitude starts to show up. It might even lead to suicidal depression in our teens. I know because I serve teens brought to me for Heilkunst Treatment in this state more often than I’d like.

These external dumbing down forces start to spread into the rest of our lives. The why bother gesture begins to permeate everything to the point where a sufferer opts to live externally, watching others live, fulfilling lives through their externalized perpetual fantasies, while the watcher sits on the sidelines and simply watches or controls a gaming console. It becomes a lot less risky to live life on the sidelines physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually if we’ve repeatedly gotten the message that what we’d like to contribute is not wholly valued.

I serve so many of these checked out children and adults, that it is astounding. It is an Aurum (homeopathic rx for the loss of one’s inner gold) state, in which they’ve forgotten their inner value. They’re not connected to their true heart’s desire (heart disease) and their lives feel profoundly un-lived (cancer). In many cases, they don’t even know what they’d like to be anymore, either in the present, or later on when they grow up, as they’ve not even thought to ask themselves this question anymore. They’re utterly resigned. T.V. perpetuates dissociation, escapism, a disengaged onlooker society. The video game and pornography industry is also counting on this physical, mental and emotional inertia of the watcher on the living room couch with his bag of cookies or chips.

Onlookers over time are numb, shut-down and not very resourceful. Perfect if the government, in cahoots with Big Pharma, want to be passing bills for mandatory vaccinations through congress without folks knowing or caring. No, you won’t see that on CNN or allopathic news. That content is only peppered liberally through my personal Twitter stream where my ire is completely provoked to write books and articles about this insidious phenomenon. #vaxxed #cdcwhistleblower  Sometimes I actually wonder if there is still anybody out there?!

In Heilkunst Medicine, we also discuss at length a Chthonic, fear-induced state entitled Bufo. In nature, Bufo Rana is a big, meaty, overgrown toad with big slobbery lips and a quick tongue. He sits  for hours, unmoving, staring at a fixed point in his environment, barely blinking waiting for a juicy fly to pass by, otherwise he is sedentary, conserving his cold reptilian energy, seemingly unaffected by his ambient. In the human disease state, you’ll observe these characteristics in addition to symptoms of lasciviousness, lewdness, lustfulness, and wantonness. They’re almost drooling as they can’t wait to get home to watch pornography and attempt self-gratification in the basest of ways in private. I’ve served many modern men, and women too, in chronic Bufo states.

I’ve also known two men in my life who were chronic T.V. watchers. One of them watched the news on a popular station from sun-up to sundown. He also developed a tumor the size of a grapefruit in his gut, breaking one of his ribs. He never knew it was there until Doctors noticed it while examining him for a hernia.

A second individual I know retired some years ago and watches a variety of sitcoms, news and documentaries day in and day out. He leaves his house on a very limited basis, living mostly in fear of the outside world. He takes a variety of drugs for depression and anxiety. His pallor is ashen. I can’t help but wonder if his chronic television watching is contributing to his problems.

I also serve individuals who have chronic problems with memory. They have difficulty recalling where they put their keys, issues with dates, times, people’s names, etc. Again, it would be interesting to wean them from television, in addition to Heilkunst Treatment, and see if their etheric memory increases.

“Television” by Chris Brown

As you can see, television is a toxic, mind-numbing and disease inducing machine. It infects you and your family with its agenda, which represents less than 1% of reality. If you travel the real world, as I do, you’ll realize that 99% of the population is so loving, helpful and compassionate, perhaps you too will forget the violence and fear proffered by television.

I’ve not had television in my midst for over twenty years for the precise reasons that I’ve illustrated above. Living without it means that I get to live my own creative, thought-provoking and imaginative life, full of juicy impressions and healthy desires. I’m a photographer, an artist, a romantic scientist and a philosopher. I get to write books, serve patients and compose blog articles based on my own generative impressions, fully taking the time to ruminate upon ideas as they crystallize into articles. I love my over-the-moon fulfilling life and I feel that T.V. would only detract from desire to know myself and others in a deep and meaningful way.

Staphysagria’s Victimization Versus Aggression – A Mini Study in Polarities

The laws of the universe are made up of polarities. This is how the planets don’t fly off into the ether and wipe out The Starship Enterprise. Also, night follows day, a growth spurt follows a fever and boy will quite often meet a girl. These polarities create new life, vortexes and Fibonacci sequences propelling us towards growth in nature’s logical formation.

We find each other, and the embrace takes place. The swirling energy of first love. I can’t eat. I can’t sleep. My romantic heart, mind and body crave to know the other through a co-communion of every one of my bodies. It is true that all new life begins with swelling and heat. This is the upside of the Fibonacci vortex.

Aloe by Kai Schreiber

All seeds swell with moisture when the soil heats up in spring spawning new life. A morning glory flower will close at day’s end. The lowest palm frond to the earth will die, shudder and peel off the trunk enabling the remaining fronds to live on, for now. This more contractive death march is the downswing of the Fibonacci spiral. Our intimacy en route to orgasm works the same way … up spiral … down spiral … up spiral … down spiral. This is also true for curing disease.

Curing rage and anger is not different. The up spiral is aggression, the down spiral is victimization. Swelling and contraction, over-inflated aggrandizement and it’s polarity, prey. It is the two sides of the same spiral.

Our relationships are also based on these inherent physical and spiritually-imbued polarities. They are gifts, a universal endowment. God’s loot bag for our being birthed.

In the case of the Staphysagria disease matrix, one person will shoot off like a canon with anger, going from 0 – 700 decibels in under 20 seconds perhaps yelling at the other person. The expression “Going Postal” captures this side of the Staph. energy. Reacting suddenly with an expression of anger so out of proportion to the actual stimulus is very characteristic. They will generally throw things …. up spiral. The down spiral of ‘victimization’ will cower in terror, making herself as small as possible, fearing any notice with terror.

This distinct polarity in Staph. is like night and day. It is true that every unhealthy aggressor must have its equally unhealthy victim.  This is not a judgement, it is simply the observed phenomenon after twenty years of research.  The whole basis of survival of a species is based on this polarization between the strongest and most skilled, and its prey. Nature doesn’t moralize, it is just the way that it is.

However, we can alter this disease endowment. Run up alongside this polarity in motion, toss the potentized remedy at it and take out its legs. We can also force the hand of its alter ego of Lachesis (guilt and shame). After Staphysagria is cured, it will usually illuminate Lach. I’m only observing the outcome, the phenomenon of consciousness.  Again, I’m simply an observational scientist.

In the healthy dynamic, we term the polarity ‘will’ (masculine) and ‘surrender’ (feminine); in health we should be able to easily wield both at the cusp of a vibrant borderland. Our heart-filled orgasm function also depends on it. I should be able to call on either gesture at a moment’s notice. The key to wholeness is to be able to be both conjointly! 

However, if someone is in a more diseased state they forfeit choice.  They become karmically locked into one mode of being either the victim OR the aggressor, then “Houston, we have a problem” — a Staphysagria disease problem. It is true that formerly abused women will typically, and sadly, find another relationship with yet another abuser, even if she thinks that she’s skipped her karmic default ‘this time’ having secured a loving partner.

If this disease matrix is not cured outright, she’ll inadvertently produce the very same ill-fated dynamic as before, helping to create that very same gesture of martyrdom again seeking its very ugly mate. Often, she will subconsciously resonate with yet another perpetrator which will reveal itself, first subtly, and then more overtly over time the more she acquiesces to old behaviors.

I was so interested in this dynamic that I went on to do my postgraduate research into why women are often so paralyzed in victimhood, re-attracting a mate who causes them mental and emotional harm. I’ve studied the phenomenon both in those that have been rapists and those that have sadly been victimized by rape.  As a woman, I wanted to understand our etiology as historical victims often burned at the stakes of patriarchal hate.

My research, stemming back to the Bible, finally culminated with the book, Unfolding The Essential Self; From Rage to Orgastic Potency that cited much of Dr. Wilhelm Reich’s Character Analysis and his understanding of how emotional and physical shocks become characterological armoring stored up in the physical body. After I’d apprehended my thesis, I wanted to find out what to do about it clinically. This seemed like a natural avenue to follow as a multi-orgasmic Feminist.

As a result, at Arcanum Wholistic Clinic where I serve patients, internationally, we use sound regimen to make the organism both strong and labile (another polarity), and then homeopathic remedies like Staphysagria to discharge the anger from a timeline of abuse or aggression. Through Character Analysis and a more cognitive approach, we help to ensure that the patient doesn’t reinfect themselves again with the old state of mind, reverting to old default patterns.   It can be likened to very carefully and elegantly dismantling a bomb.

The expressions of rage can be profoundly deep and cathartic. Sometimes the patient will yell, scream, hit a punching bag, project or simply and more subtly just “change her own mind.”  I’ve had patients express deep rage at a suppressive parent by staging their imaginal death on the stage of their imagination.  Much liberation can occur from an exercise like that.  Journalling and meditations can also be brilliant homework to help raise consciousness of the issue as it resolves.

It depends on the individual and how deep into the somatic layer the depth charge was laid. The reverberations can be a ripple in a puddle or of tsunami-like proportions. Aggressors and victims alike will often have the linchpin removed as we reach deeper into the sequential removal of their childhood shocks and traumas. Early childhood will reveal the force-field where the engenderment first occurred.   The key is to be able to effectively hold the patient as they hit the psychic trip wires laid lovingly at their feet.

The forcefield of hate will be revealed.  It is just a matter of time and patience.  It will be laid bare and raw for us both to view the original split in consciousness for which they subconsciously decided between victim or aggressor. When the patient sees it, they will choose to change it, and discharge the energy of persecution. The aggressor will show empathy and the victim will step up and exhibit self-compassion and a desire to protect herself (and those entrusted to her) appropriately.   It is fair to say that I love this moment of liberation.

I liken that magical moment in session to waking from a dream, albeit a nightmarish possession of sorts. Jesus even said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing. And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.” Luke 23:34. As you can see, here we have the division cited again from a historical perspective. The schizophrenic split between aggressor and victim wholly becomes healed.

Once the rage is resolved, it opens the individual up more for love and true orgastic potency out of a healthier will and capacity for surrender … up spiral … down spiral. They’ll be able to oscillate and hold the charge of a healthier radial and contractive gesture. Reich termed this the healthy orgonome. Former abusers will generally find their more sweet, wisdom-soaked and surrendered side, victims will find their vital drive to become their more vibrant essential selves, fulfilled and more fully actualized; both can now know true orgastic potency.

This is why I re-wrote this polarity from my rage thesis, two years later, into a novel entitled, Sophie’s Truth; How a Young Girl Unfolded Her Essential Self Through Love. For me, I had wanted to depict this healthy polarity between the sexes in the story form of a novel and see how we treat the state of mind more clinically. I wrote it for both men and women even though the main character is female and narrowly misses being raped at a house party and how she uses the remedy Staphysagria to find her essential orgastic self.

You may see where the dynamic of victimization was first seeded in my character’s story. Her parents are terrified that she will have sex, constantly projecting their fears onto her with helicopter-parenting which creates the armored terror Sophie suffers. Eventually, it produces the ultimate prey response at a party one night where she is victimized. A victimized child will just recreate her being victimized in other circumstances. Her fright is sniffed out by a young aggressor, motivated by hate, eager to bite into the flesh of her soft, tender neck by a character I named Peter (the wolf incarnate).

It was important to me, at the time, to share the thesis in a less academic, more accessible novel with younger women who craved to know love and true orgastic potency after a rape – the supreme form of victimization. I depict Sophie, my character, as having been conditioned as a victim by her parents who raise her to have virtually no trust or self-reliance. Her parents were her first persecutors, and the pattern is later mirrored in her social schema. Peter, of course, is her Father in younger sheep’s clothing.  It is an actual depiction of a great number of patients I’ve served.

After receiving just two homeopathic remedies, Aurum for inner value, and Staphysagria for victimization, my character comes to a better place of grace, just as I’ve described clinically above. Sophie makes some stunning realizations on the bus from Paris to Nice, France that enable her to move through her karmic conditioning, evolving into the young woman who’s able to be on equal footing with her true beloved.

Much of my research speaks to Dr. Wilhelm Reich’s book, Children of the Future, which describes the phenomenon of armoring and how our belief structures are just faulty sutures on the traumas of our past. These emotional insults show up in our body’s segments as biological sheaths that over time become plates like shields in our musculoskeletal systems that can be measured by how much energy remains trapped below the skin when a stimulus is perceived.

A parent’s aggressive tendencies to always be in charge will produce eternal victims that just seek out other aggressors to replace the ones that she grew up with. I can not tell you how many times I’ve seen this in my practice. The idea is that by softening the musculature with good nutrition, exercise, ample water, exercise and the right homeopathic remedies administered at the right time using the law of cure, the individual can extricate themselves from their karmic patterning.

The patient will begin to adhere to her own inner ethical compass (instead of an external one) and begin to exercise her will, in conjunction with her capacity to surrender, and grow her confidence and capacity to step up on her own behalf, out of self-love. It is the most beautiful thing to see. I feel so blessed to have witnessed this true transformation countless times.

Like my character, Sophie, who starts out by not being capable of making an autonomous decision for herself (until she achieves cure of her state of mind by homeopathic law), I’ve served patients exhibiting the same qualities. Once, however, she’s finally set free, discharging the rage of persecution, she’s able to fully self-actualize more into a state of grace with a healthier will and discernment.

It is such true grace to witness both my female and male patients come to a state of more balanced grace after an event of sexual assault. It is tough to help them find the necessary kahunas to become the healthy leader at times when it is necessary, or alternatively, completely relax and let themselves be taken out of love. It’s true that tantra (inside out) may be the polarity of the more base pornography (outside in), but that’s a whole other article.

I once took a self-defence course, called Wen-do, in my 20s designed specifically for women in the booming metropolis of downtown Toronto. It was highly recommended by the Rape Crisis Centre in order for women to learn instinctual coping strategies needed for fending off an aggressor when needed. I witnessed the bravest of women, studying this art of self-defence, from the seat of their wheelchairs!

It is fair that I felt concerned for my less able-bodied sister, but thankfully, I learned that you don’t have to be stronger,  just more knowledgeable about physics. I witnessed that from any position, you can facilitate the aggressor in the direction that he’s already going in by using his momentum, immobilizing him to the floor, pinning him in his tracks.

In the class, we were encouraged to get comfortable finding our voices, and acting completely crazy by screaming out random grocery lists items! This can actually be effective in the face of an aggressor who can become instantly afraid of someone seriously mad while spitting the words, “broccoli, cauliflower and cheese strings!” into their face with a familiar bridled hate-soaked will. I learned that you can turn the tables on an aggressor in an instant using this approach!

I was also truly amazed, in that class, at how hard it was to teach some women to express rage, even in the face of an aggressor who could possibly maim them or worse. You could tell that they were just pre-programmed to “take it”, due to prior unresolved traumas in childhood.  You could actually observe them empowering the aggressor with their broken wills and victimized stance, their gestures of anger hollow and empty. Their armoring condemning them to a plight of repeated violations and I felt afraid for them.

It was interesting to me that when my son was studying Aikido, he’d ask me to attack him and then suddenly I’d find myself sucking dirt off the kitchen floor. Even though he was taller and much stronger than me, he showed me how I could also render the same move and get the same good results with him when he, alternatively, pretended to attack me.  It was amazingly effective.  Too bad we don’t spend more time educating aggressors how to become caring and conscientious empaths.

In order to be fully threaded as orgastic beings, we have to be able to convert our hate and rage into love … or we’re lost without either hope, gestures of self-love, or faith in ourselves. We need access to both in order to foster a healthy capacity for sexual intimacy where we toss the tantric ball back and forth between us through the oscillating gesture of will and surrender.

The orgasm function is totally built on this inherent capacity. Leading ourselves and the other closer and closer up and also down the climactic steps until we build up enough energy in our organism to trip the lights fantastic into the realm of the more heady all-over body orgasm, a loss of consciousness and full discharge of all nether content, including anger. A full release of this hate and rage is actually not possible for either the Staphysagria victim or their aggressor as I will illustrate further below.

When I give Staphysagria on the sound basis of like cures like, I see a brilliant resolution to an individual’s capacity to step up out of victimization, or alternatively, step down from having been more the aggressor. After the remedy is given, I’ll often counsel the patient to take a partnered dance class to learn how to lead, or to acquiesce. Also a self-defence course where a person can learn to scream, “carrots!” like never before, can save a life.

Case Illustrations of the polarities of Staphysagria for Clinician and Patients (Please note that due to patient confidentiality, I had to find other creative ways to illustrate this phenomenon in nature):

A few years ago, I was interviewed by John Campbell on his radio show in Saint John, New Brunswick. It was about a local politician who’d been put away in jail for the sexual assault of a number of youth in his care. I argued that both the perpetrator and the victims were equally broken and that the way the justice system works, neither party obtains cure which just continues to perpetuate the dynamic, generation after generation. It is palliative, or suppressive, at best as the victims will generally grow up to be aggressors.

I recall in my early 20’s thinking about going into Law until I witnessed firsthand the injustices in the justice system. The rapists and murderers often going free based on a technical loophole spun by a savvy lawyer who could work the system was such an abomination of justice.

I’d lived with my Godparents after my parents had died at age 17. My Uncle was one of the top criminal lawyers in Canada. I often read diaries of the offenders and then went to watch, in fascination, the court proceedings. I once asked him how many of his client were guilty, and he replied ‘all of them’. When I asked him how many he got off from serving time, he replied, ‘almost all of them’.

In one case his client had raped and murdered a young girl in Niagara Falls. I had read his journals. He was the son of a fellow big wig lawyer. That boy walked and on that day in court, so did I.

As a result of getting so many criminals “off” my Uncle died prematurely by Alcoholism and Type II Diabetes (unable to extract the sweetness out of life) for which I’d had to attend to festering sores on his feet. My aunt was off travelling and having affairs with various wealthy tycoons. It was a sick and dysfunctional picture of impotence. Not my long-term gig at all.

Thusly, though, this Physician was born with a deep love for resolving chronic disease and a phenomenal fascination for armoring and the healthy human condition was born. My partner and I are listening to the Serial podcast with Sarah Koenig and the Undisclosed podcast with Rabia Chaudry regarding the Adnan Syed case in the States where a Muslim youth was totally framed for the murder of a young Asian girl. Both, sadly, were victims of a patriarchal judicial system that had no desire but to serve its white supremacist self. It is great to hear the police and justice system totally torn apart by law professors and a couple of ethical young lawyers, although, 17 years post hence. However, I digress.

This brings me to the conclusion of my study here. I want you to hear the words of a victim of a woman victimized by Jian Ghomeshi. He’s a famous ex-radio show host who allegedly victimized and brutally assaulted a string of innocent women. Many went on dates with him with promises that he’d help their modelling or acting careers.

Listen to their words and please let me know at the bottom of this article what your response is to them. The first one even comes from an adjacent village from mine in New Brunswick.

Excerpt: “The pain was so bad, she recalled, that she considered going to the hospital the next day. Instead, she accepted Ghomeshi’s pleas to give him one more chance and meet him again in a public place for a platonic outing. They ended up watching TV at his house and cuddling. He told her he was from an abusive family. They maintained a friendly correspondence for a while, but what happened didn’t sit well with her. She ultimately confronted him to say she felt he had manipulated her. That’s when he reminded her in an aggressive tone that he had kept records: “i have text messages…you WANTED it…””

Excerpt: “Three other women told me similar stories, supported by evidence, of manipulation and entrapment. Ghomeshi would establish an electronic paper trail before the alleged violence took place and would make efforts to continue a correspondence afterwards. It followed a pattern.”

Excerpt: “They would then meet him, and what happened, happened.

If women were upset with him or elusive afterwards, Ghomeshi would seem to become nervous and made efforts to normalize things. One woman said he showed up at her home in tears. He sent friendly, flattering emails, and sometimes they would respond in kind. Once this record of amicable contact was established, he would stop responding to their messages. Some chased after him with solicitous emails.”

As the trial has gone on, I’ve watched women engage with a nervous, more morbid fascination. Usually it’s women who have a history of sexual abuse and victimization seeking a crude homeopathic dose attempting to cure themselves. I’ve heard firsthand just how enthralled they are. You see, they’ve not yet reconciled, or cured, that side of their victimized selves and they find the proceedings bringing up old, unresolved traumas where they suffered instances of the same abuse, it is the sad plight of the Staphysagria state of mind.

Multiple Sclerosis; Stored Up Rage And Resentment From Childhood and Even Past Lives

Do you know someone with MS? Did you know that they’re harbouring every childhood slight, resentment and undischarged bit of hatred and rage in their body?  They’re not properly threaded in the capacity to discharge their feelings.  Their literally a “nervous” wreck creating an abnormal hardening of the body tissue in an effort to “hang on” due to an excessive resistance to change.

Their issues are deep and karmic. The spasms and chronic inflammation are an indication of their armour‘s inability to let go. In technical terms, they’re ‘sympathetic storming’ and through Heilkunst treatment, we work to help them to let go of their stored up content and respect the parasympathetic state of wisdom and relaxation.  It isn’t easy as they’ve been postured in this gesture typically a long time.  Some have even been born in this contractive feedback loop.

Subconsciously, the MS patient has chosen to store up all that content and turn it in on themselves in a defiant act of self-martyrdom. The roots lie mostly in the Genetic Miasms Cancer, Syphilis and Lyme.  They will say things like, “I’m completely useless and worthless” for which the remedies Aurum and Lachesis will help to start lapping away at their deeper pathology.

Here’s Narayan Singh’s (aka Michael J. Lincoln) “Messages From The Body” on MS:

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS (Loss of nerve endings, resulting in weakness and incoordination)
‘Wardening of the attitudes.” They are being forced to look at things they’ve never looked at

before, including past life stuff. They are having to live life for the moment, and to be crystal clear about

what they can have and what they can’t have. They have typically been highly oppressive and coercively

demanding in their pattern in past lives. They have a will of iron, and they are intensely inflexible, all of

which arises out of a generalized dread. They have taken on their situation with self-willed determination,

in a “true grit” response to the situation, leading to a “pit bull” stubbornness and to a “going down

fighting” approach. They have taken on a real mental hard-nosed and hard-headed approach. It is the

resultant of growing up in a rigidly patriarchal household.

……………………………….

“Exploitation-rage.” They feel like they have been forced to undertake hard physical work or

its equivalent in energy output against their will. They feel there is no support or assistance, and that they

have to sustain everyone all by themselves. They hate it, and they desperately want help and support.

They feel that they have exhausted themselves, and they really resent it. They feel alone and alienated,

and they are full of despair. They are in effect wreaking revenge upon those who never loved them.

Their family were exploitive and demanding, with little or no concern for their needs or welfare.

……………………………….

“Gotta take care of it myself!” They are into severe martyr-tripping, guilt-inducing and massive

control-tripping. They have a real “thing” about reforming and reforming things. They are very rigid

and moralistic, with a steel-reinforced value system and a fixed way of looking at the world and of doing

things. They are fearful that if they don’t take a personal hand in things, it will all go to hell in a bread

basket. They have a great deal of bottom line despair in response to their original severely dysfunctional

and judgmental family, in which they played the “hero(ine)-rescuer.” They were the “family hoist”,

and inflexibly disaster-deflection became their specialty.

……………………………….

“Self-straight-jacketing.” They are fearful of being free, and they are terrified of their true feelings. They are repressing their emotions, and they are therefore trapping themselves into immobilization and muscular atrophy. They are as a result unable to cope or to flow with change or to work in a co-creative and cooperative relationship with the world. They have then subsequently “selective electromagnetically” attracted and been attracted to overwhelming situations and relationships just like the original family’s scene. They therefore have a strong codependent “rescue trip” pattern which is now leading to a final denouement with regard to learning the lessons involved.

 

As mentioned in another blog, a person only has three possible outcomes when addressing a disease matrix : cure, suppression or palliation.  The bottom line is that you can work to cure it with Heilkunst Medicine or try to suppress it with drugs that cost about $15,000 – $20,000 per year.  It depends entirely on what your personal goals are as sussing out the root cause and coming to terms with the emotional and karmic aetiology is never easy, either.

Seeing What’s Behind Your Time Line

This blog is part of a series; its original title was “Heilkunst Basics: University, 4th Year (Seeing What’s Behind Your Timeline)”

Today, September the 11th, marks the anniversary of an event which continues to have a tremendous impact on our lives. There are so many dimensions to its meaning, and I will stick here to the direct medical impact, as I have seen through my patients, both at the time of the event itself, and in the years since.

At the time of the event itself, there was a tremendous amount of call-ins to the clinic from patients seeking all forms of emotional remedies, especially including shock and fear at first, and then shortly afterwards followed by the full spectrum of tonic (archetypal) emotional states. The range of acute anxiety remedies (including aconite, ignatia, and so on), and the primary tonic emotional archetypes represented by NSOL were dispensed frequently, and often in very high potencies due to the intensity of people’s experience at that time.

The individual components of NSOL are:

Natrum Muriaticumfor feelings of bereavement and loss, and ultimately for a challenge to someone’s core belief structure which questions whether people and the world in general can be trusted.

Staphysagria – for feelings of being victimized, or abused. Possibly for an anger without knowing exactly where or how to direct it.

Opium – for the root state of mind underneath many fears and anxieties. A kind of feeling “frozen in place”, like the dreams where someone is on a railway track, and cannot move a muscle.

Lachesis – for feelings of guilt, and a generally intense state of pent-up emotions looking for an outlet. Think of the image of a snake all charged up, and ready to strike out suddenly with its venomous tongue.

The NSOL combination is generally used quite a bit during a patient’s general Heilkunst treatment, and its individual components will be called for when they are emerging in a very distinct way on their own. NSOL, and its components, are very often used for treating specific shocks and traumas on a patient’s time line, as well as for dealing with the emotional reactions to situations occurring in the present.

The nature of the event of 9/11 certainly brought up many of these intense emotions, but it went much deeper than that. As is the case with anyone’s time line of shocks and traumas, the question of what is perceived as a trauma, and what it means to a given individual, will depend not just on the event itself, but on their underlying structure, in terms of their armoring structure combined with their belief structure. Two siblings, for example, who grow up in the same dysfunctional family dynamic can potentially have very different perceptions and reactions to it based on their underlying structures.

For many patients, this experience of 9/11 and its aftermath served as a catalyst to break through some of this deeper structure, and start to draw out some of their deeper chthonic issues, as well as higher ideogenic themes. The very nature of our world, as we perceive it, changed in many ways as a result. From a phenomenological point of view, when such an event of mass impact occurs, it represents a point in time where such a general shift in consciousness has, or is about to begin.

Armoring of the Thoracic Segment

This blog is part of a series; its original title was Heilkunst Basics : University, 3rd Year (Armoring of the Thoracic Segment)

The thoracic (or chest) segment is a big crossroads in our system, where many of the processes of our upper self meet and mingle with those of our nether self. In Anthroposophical terms, this is the home of our rhythmic system, which is the mediator between our nerve-sense and metabolic-limb systems. If you think of the top listed causes of death, you’ll see that both the heart and lungs seem to take the brunt of life’s stressors, and can be the first to go.

When looking at the thoracic segment from a more strictly orgonomic perspective, it is important to note up front that one of the primary mechanisms in armoring is what Reich called the “chronic inspiratory attitude”. The chest, and more specifically, the lungs are the seat of this defunct breathing pattern which many people don’t even notice that they fall into continually.

Some other physical indicators of an armored chest segment can include a posture of hunching over, as if in protection of the vulnerable heart and emotions. Conversely, there can be the opposite form of defense, which is a compensated posture showing over-confidence. More severe breathing difficulties, such as asthma-like conditions are also included here. The patient, themselves, may report a feeling or sensation of heaviness in their heart, or it may be observed by their general attitude in life. Any suppressed sobbing is stored in this segment. (Whereas suppressed tears are more related to the ocular segment, for example, and the root of sinus headaches).

The thoracic cavity is also directly connected with the arms, and with all of the emotional actions they take, such as reaching out (as in the feeling of ‘longing’), or the opposite gesture of punching in anger.

The modalities of treatment will vary with the needs in the moment of the patient, and may include : punching a pillow or punching bag; reaching out towards an imagined object or person of desire; breathing exercises, working towards a full and deep respiration; the homeopathic remedy aurum to release the feeling of heaviness in the heart; pressing on the patient’s chest to help them fully exhale while breathing.

Money And Its Relationship To Inner Value

Money can be a very touchy subject. When I was a kid, my Dad would pay the monthly household bills at the kitchen table. If you came upon him with his meticulously sorted accordion file, it was best if you backed slowly out of the room. This exercise never left him in the best of moods. My biological mother exhibited the greatest crime against her own inner value by committing suicide when I was eight years old. The woman who stepped in to replace her was a Certified General Accountant and I learned that money must be “managed” and luxuries “saved for.” I was raised with a strong Protestant work ethic and the attitude that swam in my veins is that everything must be struggled for and that you can only make enough to pay the bills and you’re lucky if you can eek out the little extra to go camping for a week or two in the summer or to Florida for a week at March Break. We were profoundly middle class.

When I entered my twenties, I got a good job working for the government (because I learned from my parents that a nice secure job with benefits is most desirable). I was fortunate enough to work in innovative groups called “task forces.” We would hire consultants, who were allegedly “smarter” than us, who would come in from the outside, look at our tasks and processes and help us to “reorganize” ourselves to do it differently … over and over again. Basically, these exercises would just pit the innovators against those individuals counting their days until retirement with the “leave me the heck alone” attitudes. It was curious to me that no matter how much I worked for the side of innovation, I was still paid the same amount as the “calendar counters.” And neither of us counted ourselves “satisfied” as neither of us could make a difference or ever be recognized by breaking the glass salary ceiling. While I effort-ed out of my Protestant work ethic, the bean counters proudly touted that they did next to nothing. We were all effectively impotent!

It took me 13 years of living this emotional suicide to recognize that I was destroying my own soul and inner value. I felt trapped in my own limited state of mind. It was at this time, that I began Heilkunst treatment. After taking the remedy Aurum Metallicum (derived from Gold) for “ailments of disappointed love, ailments from business reversals and humiliation, and fears of failure”, I chose to do the only thing that made sense to me. I dressed up my Curriculum Vitae and “became” a Consultant. For the first time in my life I felt a feeling of excitement, almost like I could soar with possibility. The glass ceiling shattered and in the first year, as an outside innovator, I earned double my annual income while only working 9 months of the year. Incidentally, I was doing the exact same work for the government, but I was now being called in from “the outside.” It was brilliant, I worked less hours and I had more time to spend with my small children. I secretly felt I was committing some crime to my WASP-ey heritage.

Over the next 4 years, I innovated organizations both public and private, really getting to know my own inner value. The problem became that I was putting all this glorious effort into organizations, that paid me very well, but the schism lay in the fact that I felt their Management remained stubbornly skewed. At this higher level of consulting, I wasn’t pitted against the state of mind of the workers, but the owners and managers. My core values did not match theirs and I kept getting enmeshed in their politics. I was taking their money and short-falling on the products and services based on our contract. I’d reached another kind of glass ceiling now as a consultant, and I knew that if I continued, I’d keep trying to jam my ethical center down, as my square peg didn’t fit their round hole. I would have to work for myself.

As a Physician, who charges money for her services, I have become a consultant to many clients. My contracts are often entered into on an hourly basis. I exchange my knowledge for some form of the other person’s personal value, usually money. Based on my inner knowledge, and continual learning, my fees have to match my inner value, otherwise, I won’t have the clients who resonate with my present research goals. However, if my fees are too low, I end up working with individuals whose inner value is also depressingly compromised. It is a fine line in which I must always reconcile my inner value with my outer. After 15 years of intensive research, writing, and my own treatment, I have achieved a deep sense of my own inner value. I have attained “orgastic potency” in my work and personal life and so do many of my patients. There is no disparity or incongruency between my inner or outer value. A recession is only a state of mind perpetuated by fear.

The Genetic Miasm, Psorinum, is defined in our Materia Medicas as “poverty consciousness”. It corresponds to the Fall and humanity will show a sharper decline into this state of mind starting about Sept. 21st. If you notice an, “anxiety and hopelessness about the future, pessimism, fears of poverty, health, cancer, the future, failure, restless, anguish, feelings of foresakeness, despair and isolated”, you may qualify for curative medicine. However, if you choose to work with me, you will have to dig down into your resourceful inner value, separate from the disease, and recognize if you are a candidate for “orgastic potency.” Psora is the disease of “lack” – they are “itching to become” and the individual prey to this state of mind will always take a posture, or a position, that is lower than their deeper capability. It is no accident that my mother committed suicide on Sept. 27th and my father died of a heart attack at age 43. Unfortunately, my Dad could not attain a life lived out of a heart filled with self-love and my Mom succumbed to her Aurum and Psora diseases. I know where I’ve come from and I know who I am now.

Some interesting statements I’ve heard recently from clients and friends who may suffer Psora disease:

A friend and client stated, “If Ally raises her fees, I wonder if we can still be friends, let alone continue treatment?”

A friend noted, “Those horse lessons for your daughter must be expensive! Now that I’m fifty, I’ve always wanted to learn how to ride, but felt it was always too expensive.”

A parent of a client stated, “That means that both Physicians are now making $70 more per hour combined for their pocket!”

Some interesting statements I’ve heard recently from clients and friends who have resolved their Psora disease:

A client recently stated, “I know that no matter what happens, I can always recreate myself to meet my needs. I am very resourceful.”

Another client exclaimed, “If I continue living the “abandoned” state of mind, that is what I’ll keep reaping, so from here on in, I am rescued! Boy, that creates some heat in my belly!”

A friend and client noted, “Like Goethe said, once I made the commitment, all the forces in the Universe showed up to support my endeavor. I didn’t need to experience an ounce of struggle as there isn’t any more separation between who I am and what I want. I am abundance and that simply is what is reflected back!”
