Developing The Eyes To “See”

April 2017 Newsletter

Contemplation or meditation is about developing the sight of God. It can’t be termed anything else. When we speak of “seeing” as a bodily organ, we are more often alluding to perception or proprioception, discerning the essence of a thing.

When I looked at the sunset in this image , above, I heard the sound of the waves and felt my bare feet in the black volcanic sand. I aimed my camera west at the cascading light of the mountains that surrounded Puerto Vallarta. I  also felt culture shock. The image brings back that feeling of thawing from the cold, wet, rain of the west. I drove thousands of kilometres to arrive at the taking of this image that thawed my feelings of shock. When I put on my proprioceptive goggles, I might have discerned some feelings of grief and fear that were in me and in the image. You might relate to that image similarly, sensing my mood at the time or perhaps conjuring up a time when you felt similar feelings.

Vision or being “sighted” has so much less to do with “seeing” than it does with an epistemological event swathed with feelings that are soaked with impressions (feelings, functions and sensations) sourced both from inside and outside our bodies. Reality, as it lives in me, and in you, can be subjective (as in Kantian terms.) We can actually begin to develop an objective science of sight, so to speak, and render those sensed impressions into to a science of spirit: Rudolf Steiner’s epistemology.

In essence, this is the arm of Heilkunst; termed Anthroposophical Science; or the study of man. When we achieve unicity between God and man through our“soul seeing,” we can begin to sort out what is a function of disease and what is health. We can see or more accurately apperceive, discern and diagnose, based on certain qualities of feelings, functions and sensations (the Physician’s response)- trusting more in our inner soul’s function to “see” and apprehend phenomena.

This is why, as Heilkünstlers, we have no issues working with patients by phone. Our organs have been honed over the last twenty years to be able to “see” with all our faculties – not just with our eyes. A change in tone, a sudden in breath, a pause, or even a swallow inserted at the right time will enable us to perceive what we can not see. It feels like a transcendental meditation, adopting the spiritual sight, a departure from ordinary cognition.

In essence, your soul wants my soul to obtain the truth about you, so that you can be whole. It  reaches out to me through nuances in symptoms so refined at times that you may not even be consciously aware of them . The soul is entirely intact, and it’s job is to push discrepancies out into our midst so they can be fully apprehended – their meaning sucked clean from the bone and annihilated. For us, this is the functional nature of the “seeing” phenomena for proper discernment.

Rudolf Steiner states, “Just as in the body, eye and ear develop as organs of perception, as senses for bodily processes, so does a man develop in himself soul and spiritual organs of perception through which the soul and spiritual worlds are opened to him. For those who do not have such higher senses, these worlds are dark and silent, just as the bodily world is dark and silent for a being without eyes and ears.”

In this month’s articles, we speak about eyes and the meaning behind the “ocular” block as per Dr. Wilhelm Reich. Why don’t you take a look and see if you can wholly apprehend the phenomena around the meaning behind “pink eye” and why we don’t always use our eyes to “see” – when we are trying to avoid engaging with something in our lives.

 

Women’s Work; How To Lessen The Burden

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the kids were still at home, we had a couple of systems that worked well as we had two busy practices, both of us were doing post graduate research and we had a farm to also run. Basic stuff had to get done, but I was unwilling to be the sacrificial lady lamb in the equation. Jeff, also, would not allow this to happen to me, either, so we developed some basic systems.

Every week we had a white board on the fridge and the four of us would divvy up the chores to be done that week, listed for each day. We also had laundry folding parties where everyone would meet in the living room, the clean laundry spilt out of the baskets onto the floor and then everyone would help sort by pitching undies, shirts, pants etc. at each other until it all got distributed. Great hand-eye coordination and memory work with this one! Each person had their own basket to fold (or gather) their clean clothes into and then put them away in their drawers or closet.

If the kids needed help, they would ask as we buddied up when one child was smaller and more challenged with the task at hand, but they were generally part of the sorting party by the time they were 4 and running the washer and dryer by 12. Sometimes their clean clothes lived in that basket until they got to the bottom, but it had to be kept in their closet. It was their choice as long as it was “put away.”

The other thing that helped a lot is that we had going was a shared grocery/general shopping list app on our phones divided into categories like “market,” “grocery store” or “hardware store.” If stuff needed to get on the list, like ‘cheese’ the child had to use our phones to load it on there or it wouldn’t get bought. Over time, they both got better at spelling these items … but often either Jeff or I would be standing in the grocery isle laughing ourselves silly as Jordan got good at writing items like, “monkey balls” or “penis pickles.”

When they were in their teens, they had the same shared list on their own phones and then when they drove, they also did the groceries. Yay! We helped to grow them into these shared roles from the time that they were little. They were also taught how to manage bills, make payments, and budget accordingly. Now, we’re showing them how to invest in ways that yield solid returns.

The idea was/is to make it fun, there was always some joking around, and the burden was never all on my shoulders to be the Queen-pin of our domestic operations. We also divvied up the cooking and everyone took a night or two preparing supper for the family. We ate a lot of the same things and our crock pot got a lot of use. Sundays, we’d get some music on, Adie would often bake (her Scottish shortbreads to die for), I’d prepare one meal, Jeff another and Jordan would be designated sous chef or dishwasher. The key was that we worked together at all of it … including mucking out the stalls in the barn. It built a sense of teamwork and belonging. A dull knife and a carrot can keep a toddler busy for quite awhile!

In our practice, we see a lot of women chronically in a Sepia state (the careworn mother) or Cancer state (rescuing others to the exclusion of self) of mind.  It is important to activate the health and well-being of our essential selves so as not to default to this program often wrought by our fore-mothers.  Trying to work full-time and/or homeschool and then also deal with all of the responsibilities of hearth and home (or farm) can start out as protracted stress and then become, over time, Sepia or Cancer states qualifying you for more aggressive treatments.  Is it time to wake from your resignation?

Finding Out Where Joy Resides

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many folks come to us to address a chronic issue; chronic fatigue, chronic headaches, chronic back pain; chronic sciatica, chronic depression, chronic anger, and the list goes on.  This is where the journey begins, but it is not where it ends.  Once the chronic symptoms are addressed, the patient generally becomes so curious that she wants to know how deep the rabbit hole goes into her psyche.

She wants to not only find out the aetiology for the chronic pain, but she knows intuitively that something lurks beyond the cause, something so rarified that she may have never known it’s purity this lifetime.  Once the shocks, blocks and traumas are out of her way, she teases back the curtain to find where the joy resides.  She observes this new way of being even though it frightens her.

She realizes her chronic symptoms kept her from knowing this state of being.  What now?  Over several weeks, she fans her newfound “growledge,”  developing inch by inch her courage  to know herself in a way that she’s never apprehended before. She cautiously reaches for the joy  that resides just beyond her grasp.  She pulls back, afraid.  What if it’s transitory like all the other times she tried to know her wishes?!

She reaches, again, and it tickles her back.  She wonders if anyone is watching, if they can see the Kaos in her.  Her pure awe grows in the face of this newly realized essential self.  She remembers feeling like this as the tiniest child.  She realizes now, that the joy isn’t fleeting, but that the hardest task ahead will be to realize that she deserves it.

When Will We Know? Observations On Forced Education

3564907218_e21ca3bc65_z

“circle of friends” by Valentina Powers

Rudolf Steiner, Spiritual Scientist, and founder of Waldorf Education and Anthroposophic Medicine cites that children can’t in fact subsume, in a healthy fashion, reading, writing or mathematical concepts until well after the milk teeth have fallen out. The idea being that if you wake a child too early to intellectual machinations, you damage the fine tuning of their etheric (creativity and absorption) and astral (artistry and inspiration) integration.

In this over-intellectualized and mechanistic epoch in which we live, one of the greatest crimes I see in healthcare is over-intellectualized adults who struggle with accessing all of their organs for knowledge. They’re just not properly integrated! This produces anxiety and neurosis on a large scale as their capacity for trusting their inner guidance system (gnosis) has been tarnished due largely to the tyranny of forced education.

Parents who live in fear that their child won’t be able to compete in this global culture unless they’re bullied into unfolding their egghead processes early on, actually destroy their child’s innate capacities to become lifelong learners, something which ought to be borne as a self-inspired, inside-out gesture. Real knowledge has never been a successful outside-in game and never will be. You’ve heard the maxim, “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.”

A natural curiosity is the stuff of health. It propels us from the Godhead of our ordination as human beings (not human doings) otherwise as children we’d never ask questions like, “Why is the sky blue?” If this innate desire is squashed, and replaced by government curricula and unproven homework that turns parents into hateful enforcers instead of advocates and protectors, we destroy a child’s delicate intuition.

When will we come to wholly trust, and have faith, that each of us will ask the questions – from an internal fount whose source is beyond our comprehension – that will propel the answers towards us? When will we come to the understanding that as we progress through our spiritual unfolding, our nuanced capacity to know will flow and ebb with each consciousness soul phase we blunder through so that we’re married to the functional purpose that evolution pours through each one of us?

When will we know that the gesture to bully and shove round pegs into intellectually limiting square holes is on its way out and that feminine wisdom is mounting a luminous trail so self-sustaining and rejuvenating that the silos of patriarchy are being revealed, and breaking down at an amazing rate? When will we know that the desire to “know thyself” is so flipping compelling to each one of us that its intrinsic nature is something to be preserved, not browbeaten or terrorized with ridiculous tests.

When will we preserve the essence of our innately curious being-ness as wonder-filled seekers?  

When will we know?

In Gratitude – ‘Tis The Season

164154

While attending University, way back when, I used to board with a great big Irish Catholic family. Actually, there were once seven children at home but when I arrived on the scene to rent a room, only the mother and one daughter were left at home. The young woman and I both attended the University of Toronto at the same College.

When I came downstairs one day the mother, H. (I’ll call her), wearing a surgeon’s mask, was stripping the paint from around the oak window casings with a small blow torch and a paint scraper. She was singing softly to herself. I tried to creep by without disturbing her as she seemed so intent on her task. She called out, “Is that you Allyson?” I replied, “Yes, I’ve come down to make some breakfast.”

I recall commenting on the incredible amount of work she was doing and that it might take a year, or more, for her to strip all the windows in the house, including the stained glass ones, and wasn’t she afraid of burning the wood or torching the glass? She responded that it was therapy for her after the decades of work at Queen’s Park as an assistant to a prominent political member. She was now retired and it seemed stripping windows of their white paint was how she’d decided to best fill her days. At the time, I didn’t understand why a retired person wasn’t out scuba diving or lunching with a whole gaggle of friends.

She continued, saying that she wove her prayers into the vapour from the torch, that they would be carried heavenward with each bubble of paint that she scraped from the sill. During the hotter summer months, she’d often strip the paint for 8-9 hour stretches in her panties and a loose t-shirt. I wondered at this sixty-five year old feminist as if she was a most curious object. Sometimes, I knew that she could feel my eyes on her and I could feel her smile; she’d just continue humming as she worked without saying a word. One time she did ask me if I had issues with feminism, and for three decades after I was mystified by her question.

Late one afternoon, I came home via streetcar along Gerrard St. East, to find on my bed a book entitled, “A Canticle for Leibowitz” by Walter M. Miller, Jr. about a simple shopping list left behind by a monk and how its seemingly benign items like, “Pound pastrami, can kraut, six bagels–bring home for Emma” speaks to the rise and fall of humanity in the face of atrocities like a nuclear holocaust. At the time, I didn’t have a clue why H. would want me to read such a book, however, since she seemed to take an interest in me (I had been orphaned the year prior) I forced myself through its pages. We never spoke about why she gave it to me.

To this day, I still don’t wholly understand the ramifications of what was written on the pages of that book, so I took it on as a gesture of intention, a meditation of sorts. Just as this woman scraped paint day after day, perhaps not wholly understanding why or what her function or purpose was at the time, she was investing her thoughts into the practice. I tried to bring the same gesture to that book, and many other books and practices since.

H. taught me that to be a woman in the 21st century, it is sometimes enough not to will something into existence with a great fury, hell bent on accomplishment. That sometimes, seemingly meaningless, repetitive tasks can allow for the space to contemplate, ruminate and even pray. That sometimes, whispering your hopes and dreams into the whiff of vapour, or exploring the incongruous meaning behind why a person is canonized by patriarchal religion is similarly mysterious.

It is the task of remaining open and receptive, in a state of gratitude for the simple things in life, where laying down the rod of doing in exchange for a state of being is an act of utter courage. It is the meaning of the “mass” portion of Christ-mass. When I look up Mass, I get a whole conglomeration of meanings in Wikipedia that look something like this:

“The English noun mass is derived from Middle Latin missa. The Latin word was adopted in Old English as mæsse (via a Vulgar Latin form *messa), and was sometimes glossed as sendnes (i.e. “a sending, dismission”).[8] The Latin term missa itself was in use by the 6th century.[9] It is most likely derived from the concluding formula Ite, missa est (“Go; the dismissal is made”); missa here is a Late Latin substantive corresponding to classical missio.

Historically, however, there have been other explanations of the noun missa, i.e. as not derived from the formula ite, missa est. Fortescue (1910) cites older, “fanciful” etymological explanations, notably a latinization of Hebrew matzâh (??????) “unleavened bread; oblation”, a derivation favoured in the 16th century by Reuchlin and Luther, or Greek ?????? “initiation”, or even Germanic mese “assembly”.[10]Already Du Cange (1678) reports “various opinions on the origin” of the noun missa “mass”, including the derivation from Hebrew matzah (Missah, id est, oblatio), here attributed to Caesar Baronius. The Hebrew derivation is learned speculation from 16th-century philology; medieval authorities did derive the noun missa from the verb mittere, but not in connection with the formula ite, missa est.[11] Thus, De divinis officiis (9th century[12]) explains the word as a mittendo, quod nos mittat ad Deo (“from ‘sending’, that which sends us towards God”),[13] while Rupert of Deutz (early 12th century) derives it from a “dismissal” of the “enmities which had been between God and men” (inimicitiarum quæ erant inter Deum et homines).[14]”

It is really a tough piece for me to sort through. I don’t fully understand its holy  historical references; however, if I am patient enough, some vaporous light may illuminate it if I’m meant to know more. The other day, in a foreign country, where the language is foreign to me, I slipped into a two hundred year old church during mass. I sat in a back pew, closed my eyes in the cool stoney air and felt the wisps of incense wash over my fatigued bones. My camera draped at my side, I closed my eyes and fell into a meditative state as the filthy, homeless person with a ratty beard prayed next to me in Spanish on bended knee.

In the past, when directed by my mentor, Steven Decker, to study Rudolf Steiner until I drifted off to sleep more mystified and confused than ever, I’d become comforted without knowing precisely why I was studying such heady texts. It was like being tussled and tossed about in the washing machine of mystery. While I don’t always know in the moment, I trust that a canticle of meaning will eventually find me during the seemingly most mundane of tasks, a whispered prayer, poem or song received in the corridors of my heart.

I no longer have issues with powerful women. They don’t scare me. H. was right. It took me years to understand that just because I wasn’t counted as a wizened woman in my early twenties due to my weakened, diseased state  doesn’t mean that I didn’t have the potential to eventually become one.  After thirty years, through the portal of my own health, I learned to breathe many prayers into countless sill windows. Although ongoing, I now feel the answers to my own feminine mystery; a sweet place where I might serve in my ontological confines in this present space and time.  

A canticle of seemingly endless lists filled with pastrami and sauerkraut in the face of political holocaust can join together to produce strong, capable and assured women, who whisper prayers for the salvation of self and other into the vapours of time. This unifying presence through family and intention is the Divine feminine ignited.

This year I am thankful for rest, health, verve, ease, strength, quiet, creativity and an inner grace that is ripening. I am grateful for inspiring women, and men, in my life who hold the candle of the mysteries of life in good stead until they’re ready to be wholly illuminated. I am able to fall into meditation, offering prayer-filled alms to the Spanish beggar for he shines the light on what is still my greatest challenge: the quickness with which I judge the sills of time to be too many to make a shred of difference.

“Just as in the body, eye and ear develop as organs of perception, as senses for bodily processes, so does a man develop in himself soul and spiritual organs of perception through which the soul and spiritual worlds are opened to him. For those who do not have such higher senses, these worlds are dark and silent, just as the bodily world is dark and silent for a being without eyes and ears.”

Honing Our Organs of Self Knowledge As Digital Nomads

Well, we’ve put 19,000 kms in total on our car since June travelling across Canada and down the west coast of the United States and into Mexico. We’re finally settled in the most remarkable city that we’ve ever been to in both Europe or North America. Think ancient Italian port town nestled on a rocky bowl with mind-blowing food and culture for less than a few pesos.

Guanajuato, Mexico is built in a steep teacup that is an ancient caldera of a volcano. It was the seat for the Spanish invasion, and subsequent revolution, due to the wealth of the gold and silver mines documented in the art of Diego Rivera (Frida Kahlo’s husband).

dsc_0065

In the week that we’ve been here, we’ve already been to several concerts, with a world class symphony, with performers that hail from Russia, Europe as well as Mexico. Yesterday, I went to a piano recital that blew my socks off, afterwards there was a wine and tapas offering in the spectacular garden with local folks peppered with expats. It cost me $10 Canadian.

I’m learning to muddle through with my broken Spanish, although it is tough being so effusive and so short on vocabulary. I will start my tutoring online next week and hope to volunteer here with local youth who make organic soaps and olive oil so that I can learn more of the colour of this expressive romance language.

Our two room casita, with fibre-op, sits at the very top of the bowl with mountains jutting up on three sides. Any stroll to the the town takes us on a steep incline that makes me often think that I need a climber’s belt, ropes and several carabiners to make it back home.

Our morning hikes take us down cobbled streets through a dam, salted with patos blancos (white ducks), a gorgeous park past several schools and universities for art, political science and engineering. Of course, there are churches with huge iron bells and haciendas dotted in between with old colonial styling and balconies, man how I love a pretty balcony!

Jeff and I will scoot into Café Tal for a Sencha Tea (or the best hot chocolate I’ve ever had) and then we might have a couple of steamed tacos for breakfast from a street vendor. All totalling about $3.50 Cdn. A cab is 50 pesos (about $3.00 with tip) and the bus is 5 pesos (which is so little I can’t calculate it). Our groceries for the week come to about $30 – $40 Cdn at Mercado Hidalgo (built by Ernesto Brunel and Antonio Rivas Mercado with input by Alexandre Gustave Eiffel of Paris’ Eiffel Tower) where we get all our fruits, vegetables and meats.

It’s even cheaper if you walk the streets and locate the native indians, mostly women with babes in arms, who’ve brought their wares to sell down from the ranchos way above the lip of the caldera. One such young fellow, in front of his parent’s vegetable stall, stopped and asked me in broken English where I was from. I responded, “Canada,” gesturing way, way far from here, and he asked me if we speak English there and I said, “Yes, and French too!”

The weather is very cool here at night, dropping down to a nippy 5-8 degrees celsius which is in the mid 40’s on the fahrenheit scale. Like home, we have three blankets on our bed for warmth at night. And boy do we sleep! At 7,000 feet above sea level, we’re having to take the homeopathic remedies, Coca and Cundurango, for a touch of altitude sickness. You’re extra sleepy at night, the oxygen thinner so when hiking back up the 3,500 steps (about 15 flights of stairs … no, we don’t count them … we have an app for that!) from having tea, we need to stop a couple of times to catch our breath. Also, you can have headaches right where you’d have devil’s horns, if you were thusly inclined, on the top of your head and feel at times a little hungover with a stomach bug.

While it takes about six weeks, typically, to stabilize your blood oxygen levels, we’re already feeling amazing in our new locale. We travel like this to fulfill our astral desire function to know new people, culture, art, music and language. It builds the ontic (sense of autonomy/immunity) by holding our essence in check as we’re exposed to many different circumstances and seeming social incongruencies to our more conservative Canadian sensibilities. Also, living in Canada, frankly is just too familiar, and also very pricey now that we’ve just paid off all of the “investments” we made into our education.

We’ll see what the next five months here in Mexico yields. In our opinion, we’d much rather be on this side of any walls to be erected by boisterous (better if I don’t add the other adjectives I’m thinking of) politicians.

 

How to Use Feeling to Provoke Healing

 

 

 

we-need-to-feel-to-heal

 

 

Consciousness of feelings sparks the desire to heal. First, we have to identify that we don’t like certain feelings before we can change them. Perhaps you have an inclination to feel perpetual fear that keeps you from engaging in an activity, or sadness that makes you think that maybe you’re depressed. Maybe you’re feeling guilt just like your mother did or you find yourself flying off the handle with a primal anger that startles you.

Much of these feelings are provoked over time from thwarted desires. Many of them are anchored in unresolved childhood trauma. If we can get to you soon enough and apply Heilkunst principles, we can reverse and re-engineer the feeling before it becomes an engendered disease with both physical and mental symptoms. It is so much easier to reverse a disease matrix when it’s still simply a feeling (think of the relative ease of preventing a preganancy before conception compared to after).

When we apply the law of cure, like cures like, the patient gets to experience, on the emotional level (and physical too) the backing out process. This means that she will revisit the reasons that she contracted with the state of mind (thwarted desire) in the first place before it became a chronic physical or mental manifestation of the disease matrix.

All disease starts in the mind and can be traced back to a frustrated desire (external) versus “wrongly formulated or misguided desires due to illusion, delusion, belief, etc.” (internal). You can study Messages From the Body by Michael J. Lincoln or The Healing Power of Illness by Thorwald Dethlefsen if you want to know more on what symptom corresponds to what state of mind.

If a negative feeling or belief is around long enough, it will engender a disease matrix that spawns symptoms. By then harnessing the law of cure (‘homeopathic’ means ‘similar suffering’ from the Greek) will become necessary. It will not be cured until then. So many folks try to take sufficient vitamins, eat the right foods, exercise, go to talk therapy or use essential oils for example, which are great for sustaining health when you’ve already got it, but for an engendered disease the only law of cure is like cures like.

The healing phase occurs as part of the secondary action following the cure. It is a natural byproduct that occurs from the process of having addressed the underlying cause on the law of cure. The original thwarted desire can suddenly, and easily, become a realized reality. We, luckily, get to see this resolution with our patients and also in ourselves. As a result, the physical symptoms no longer have an etiology to anchor to, and will dissipate, as the cause has been removed; the lifeforce unblocked.

All chronic symptoms have a functional relationship to “the feeling.” Once this root cause is wholly addressed, lawfully, then the healing can begin, but not before. Otherwise you’ll hear the patient say that he “feels stuck” or that she just can’t “move forward”.

If caught before the point of engenderment of a disease (think pregnancy again), then it’s simply a matter of “changing your mind” and reverse engineering those thoughts. However, if the feeling has spawned a root system (think placenta), with the accompanying chronic symptoms, there is only one law of cure, like cures like, if you want to address it to its very essence.

You need to feel in order to heal, and then by applying the correct principle(s) to properly address the nature of your suffering outright you extract it by the roots (the traumatic timeline and the Genetic Miasms). If you think about it, simply trying to change your mind or throw supplements at it (the law of opposites is only healative), it won’t change the fact that you’re still ‘pregnant’ with the diseased feelings running amok.

Jeff Korentayer and I (Allyson McQuinn) have almost 20 years of study and practice discerning the difference  between “feeling” and “emotion” (or “feeling” and “feelings”), as well as “objective” versus “subjective” feeling. Basically, we diagnose through your feelings into the singular, underlying feeling, isolating the deeper emotional blockages that you may be able to verbalize, or not. Your symptoms tell a whole story, and not just physically, that we can isolate through “objective” feeling.

Here’s an example:

You say that you suffer headaches over the eyes, sinusitis, difficulty getting to sleep at night and a desire to be alone. You despise when folks try to console you as it makes you feel more irritated than better. We notice on your timeline that you’ve never felt well since a series of break-ups which followed the death of someone close to you.

Even though you’ve described a number of emotions and symptoms, the objective feeling is one of unresolved grief. The homeopathic remedy to address the underlying cause for all of these feelings, functions and sensations is Natrum Muriaticum. The thwarted desire has to do with feeling blocked from realizing resonant love and fears associated with one’s limited mortality.

While this is a very simplified example, my hope is that you get the idea of how feeling the feelings is the first phase in setting your GPS “to heal.”  Once you’ve identified that you no longer want to feel this way, that you need help to unblock where you feel stuck, we can peel your onion of thwarted desires using curative principles, the Heilkunst approach, and help you to get on with fully actualizing your essential self, enabling you to realize all your goals and dreams.

Lisa’s Natural Birth ala Heilkunst

unnamed-2

Our baby, Seamus is our “opps baby”. The pregnancy was a bit of a surprise since we weren’t trying and both of us are 44.  We both have been in treatment with our Heikunstler (and I am a Heilkunstler in training) for over 15 years, eat organic and try to live a healthy lifestyle so getting pregnant easily should have been no surprise since fertility and health go hand in hand.

My pregnancy was routine and uneventful and I did remain active throughout it – down hilled skied until I was 20 weeks, biked until 30 weeks and hiked until 35 weeks, this was on top of taking care of my two other boys (13 and 8 yr olds) and a female Newfoundland puppy. My last baby was born at home, and I planned a home birth for Seamus as well.

I went overdue, a new experience for me as both of my other boys were born at 39 weeks. As I approached 41 weeks with an OP position (posterior) I started taking homeopathic remedies to help turn my baby, along with seeing my acupuncturist and chiropractor. My labour started (literally) with a splash when my water broke all over our family room floor at 10:30 pm on a warm summer night. I called out to Doug but he was putting our youngest to bed and didn’t hear me, so my oldest son, told him my water had broke and I needed some towels. He ran downstairs with our “good” towunnamed-4els which I refused to use and frustrated him since he wasn’t concerned about what towels we used – he did go up and get different towels. He seemed more panicked than I expected and when I asked him what was going on, he replied that the last time my water broke, I had delivered within 15 minutes. Once I explained to him that I had been in active labour for a few hours then, and that this was the start of this labour, he settled down and we both laughed about the misunderstanding.

We put our boys to bed, who wondered if the baby was coming soon and we told them that it could be hours yet. At 11:00pm, I called my midwife and as there was no active labour pattern, she told me to try and get some rest and call her when labour had established itself. Doug and I chilled out in our bedroom – it was a wonderful restful, intimate time as we chatted and relaxed. Contractions started at 11:30pm (it should be noted that we were so relaxed that Doug dozed off while timing the first few contractions. LOL) and by12:30am they were becoming uncomfortable, so I asked my midwife to come and got into my tub to get some relief.

Our midwife and douunnamed-3la arrived at 12:45pm and my contractions were 3 minutes apart and were lasting 1 minute. At this point things went fast, and got blurry as I quickly dilated (my midwife did not do any internal exams – she usually doesn’t do them as she can usually tell how quickly a woman is dilating by observing her). I can remember feeling some fear as my contractions got more intense and asked Doug to write out a paper remedy for aconite which took care of it instantly. My doula and midwife were amazing using comfort methods between contractions such as ice cold cloths on my shoulders, giving me ice and water (at this point I wanted nothing to eat) and lots of encouragement, especially when I hit transition and decided that I didn’t want to have a baby after all. LOL. Doug was a rock star went things got tough for me, helping me in and out of the tub, keeping me reassured when I felt I couldn’t do one more contraction, and letting me squeeze whatever parts of him I had a hold of during contractions. I had assumed a half squat in my tub and it was suggested that I move around more but after changing positions, I quickly realized that I had naturally assumed the best position for me and quickly went back to it and stayed in that position until I was fully dilated – a great example of my body knowing what is right for it when left alone to follow its own guidance.

I started pushing at ~2:35am and started to lose control for a moment with the tremendous forces urging this baby down. My midwife quickly runnamedeminded me that this was a big baby and if I didn’t go slow, I could tear. I listened to her and put every effort into relaxing and letting my body move the baby on its own. At this point I was lying back in the tub and Doug was supporting my upper body. As Seamus was moving down, I could feel my hips shift slightly to accommodate him and within 10 minutes he was crowning. He had turned during labour from OP to OA (I had been doing paper remedies of Kali-carb throughout labour to help him turn) and once his head was out, I took a two-minute break while waiting for the next contraction – my midwife said he was rotating his shoulders underneath the public bone during this time. This seemed like a long time for Doug who initially worried about our baby’s head being out under water for such a period of time, but my midwife assured him, that baby was fine and was being given oxygen through his cord. I didn’t want to push anymore at this point (not that I had done a lot, as my body had done most of it without any effort on my part), but my last contraction took over and with one push, Seamus was born at2:50am.

unnamed-1He gave a little cry and quickly settled on my chest. Heated towels were put around him while we relaxed in the tub waiting for the placenta to detach. The cord stopped pulsating after 15 minutes so Doug cut it and my placenta was delivered 15 minutes later (actually I stood up and after the smallest of pushes it fell out). I had no tears from the delivery which was great seeing that he was our biggest baby weighing 8pds, 7 ounces. Seamus was peaceful and alert after the delivery and Doug and I spent the rest of the night/morning relaxing in bed with our new baby (I did a paper remedy of arnica to help me with my recovery).

My recovery was very short as all soreness had left within 24 hours of the birth (I also took birth remedies after the delivery), and all bleeding at stopped 4 days after delivery. I had my placenta encapsulated and started taking the capsules 5 days after birth. Breastfeeding is going well, and I’m feeling great. ~ By Lisa Power

HP (Homoprophylaxis) and How to Get Your “Green Vaccines”

HP_is_for_Homoprophylaxis_..._we_ve_been_providing_-green_vaccines-_to_patients_for_the_last_15_years_with_the_highest_of_efficacy,_without_causing_an_ounce_of_harm._We_work_internationally.

Background

Some of you know that we’ve been working on a book called, “The Vaccination Myth and The Immunization Answer; How to Use Homoprophylaxis to Easily Obtain Natural Immunity.” It is a hard piece for me to research and write, for two main reasons.

  1. My son was badly vaccine damaged by the Hep. B (high pitched screaming around the clock for 6 months) and then by the MMR (which injected him into suffering advanced Autism including stimming, no eye contact, severe constipation, thwarted language skills, OCD behaviours and bouts of rage including hitting, biting, and kicking)
  2. I’m beyond enraged, myself, to discover the full extent to which no vaccine has actually been scientifically proven. It boils down to the fact that humanity is Big Pharma’s guinea pigs without an ethical placebo. I’m simply shocked, during this research project, to trace certain vaccines right into the heart of the 3rd Reich and Hitler’s Regime, an Ahrimanic nightmare, with deep roots of supremacist tyranny. Forced vaccines are actually breaking the Nuremberg Code which is: “The Moral Right to Conscientious, Philosophical and Personal Belief Exemption to Vaccination.”

History of Medical Tyranny

I’ve learned how kids became paralysed and subsequently died from the Salk-killed polio virus that originated in California’s Cutter Labs and how Roosevelt used one of his colleagues from Wall Street to promote the March of Dimes anyway. They tried out the vaccine on innocent boys from a group home in Pennsylvania without their prior consent. As a result, hundreds of children became sick and some even perished while this unethical vaccine was released to the public en masse anyway.

Source: http://amhistory.si.edu/polio/virusvaccine/vacraces2.htm

We also know that the highest incidence of AIDS infections actually first showed up where Hep. B vaccines were concentrated in New York City, San Francisco and central Africa. Could this be a form of ethnic cleansing? Dr. Richard Leviton seems to think so, if you read his book, “Physician; Medicine and the Unsuspected Battle for Human Freedom.” Also, it begs the question about the logical use of this vaccine in infants who cannot engage in carnal relations where Hep. B could possibly be transmitted. Also, the vaccine wears off by the time the child is 16. This begs the question, how much revenue is gained by this unproven needless vaccine in a newborn?!

Also, the HPV Vaccine has maimed and also killed hundreds of girls. The CDC actually cited, years ago, that there is no biological connection between the human papillomavirus and cervical cancer. In May 2007, it was reported that over 1,600 adverse reactions, including three deaths, had been linked to Gardasil, Merck’s new vaccine for human papillomavirus (HPV). It appears that this vaccine was conjured out of thin air without a shred of evidence proving its efficacy. It is being tried on unsuspecting teens and it’s now being promoted for boys and infants to take as well?!

For the past 20 years and more, our community has been providing “Green Vaccines” on the sound basis of homoprophylaxis. This is a simple oral dose of the homeopathic rx, that has no capacity to cause you or your infant harm. We’ve provided these nosodes in the prevention of childhood illness and to those travelling to distant lands with the highest of efficacy during this time. It is administered as a dry dose, either on lactose powder or on a potato starch wafer, depending on where it is being shipped to.

Back in late 1990s, we sampled one hundred individuals each year for the first 5 years to discern if any of them ended up suffering a bout with the flu. None of them had. While every year those who’ve chosen to get the allopathic flu shot have less than 10-20% efficacy given that the strain morphs each year. Some years, the CDC has admitted giving a vaccine with no proven efficacy. These vaccines are also laced with Thimerosal (mercury) which is a known neurotoxin and has a known connection to Autism.

Dr. Mercola cites, “To put things into perspective, malaria kills 3,000 people EVERY DAY, and it’s considered “a health problem”… But of course, there are no fancy vaccines for malaria that can rake in billions of dollars in a short amount of time. One Australian news source, for example, states that even a mild swine flu epidemic could lead to the deaths of 1.4 million people and would reduce economic growth by nearly $5 trillion dollars.

Give me a break, if this doesn’t sound like the outlandish cries of the pandemic bird-flu I don’t know what does. Do you remember when President Bush said two million Americans would die as a result of the bird flu? In 2005, in 2006, 2007, and again in 2008, those fears were exposed as little more than a cruel hoax, designed to instill fear, and line the pocketbooks of various individuals and industry. I became so convinced by the evidence AGAINST the possibility of a bird flu pandemic that I wrote a New York Times bestselling book, The Bird Flu Hoax, all about the massive fraud involved with the epidemic that never happened.”

Perhaps also think of the more recent Ebola and Zika scares. The media used these potential scourges to rattle the chain of fear in the population. Big Pharma, the mainstream media and those vile henchmen in government, who don’t mind lining their pockets with dirty drug money from this legal drug cartel, use fear to keep the population within its insidious grasp of control. It is becoming the crime of this century as 1 in 45 boys now suffer Autism at the hands of this insidious matrix!

History of HP

The most data collected on HP that we know of is by Dr. Isaac Golden in Australia. He’s been using HP for decades with kids achieving the greatest of efficacy. Not only is HP devoid of chemicals, adjuvants (preservatives), antibiotics, human DNA from aborted animal or fetal tissue, GMO’s, propylene and ethylene glycol (window washer fluid), it performs with the best results into the 90th percentile. On the sound basis of like cures like, we can actually provide you and your child with natural immunity to a disease without risking an ounce of harm. This is how your body naturally assumes immunity in nature.

Homeoprophylaxis is also effective for the prevention of childhood diseases as observed in 3500 children (Golden, Isaac. “Homeoprophylaxis-A Fifteen Year Clinical Study: A Statistical Review of Efficacy and Safety of Long Term Homeoprophylaxis. Gisborne. Vic. 2004). http://www.homstudy.net/Research/

Capture

With HP, you and your child develop lifelong immunity as a result of these bio-resonant remedies. There can be a mild healing reaction in some cases after a child has had an HP dose given that they may have a cellular memory of their parents’ allopathic shots within their DNA and so a slight fever, a longer nap that day or runny nose can be indicative of this “clearing” of the debris from their soma. There is no risk of swelling at the site of injection as the dose is administered orally with HP.

Also, in 20o years, there has not been a case of seizures or deaths ever from a homoprophylactic dose of a homeopathic remedy like with conventional vaccines. Cilla Whatcott, HD RHom, CCH, PhD writes, “The innate developing immune system recognizes one disease, begins an immune response by producing a fever, then a discharge or eruption, and then resolution by developing lifelong immunity to a specific virus. HP produces a similar response yet in a much milder way. We might observe a very brief runny nose or perhaps a longer nap. However, there is no immune system confusion, no viral competition, no crossed signals, and no system overload like with conventional vaccines!

HP is made by serial dilution of an original substance, either from a natural disease or from an animal, mineral or vegetable source. It is diluted past Avogadro’s number (remember high school chemistry?), rendering it devoid of any molecules, and thus harmless. It maintains the original energetic frequency, however. It’s this stimulation to the immune system that primes it to recognize a disease when encountered in the environment to effectively mount an immune response in the most natural way. Or, the disease is repelled altogether.”

We’re very excited to report that homoprophylaxis hasn’t the capacity to cause harm, but it also has a stellar, proven, track record. Dr. Hahnemann, the founder of Heilkunst (and the principle homeopathy meaning “similar suffering”) Medicine determined that what makes a healthy person sick, can also cure someone who is sick. In his 88 years, he proved 99 remedies efficacious, wrote meticulous volumes on “Chronic Diseases,”  “The Organon of the Medical Art” and “A Friend to Health” in his “Lesser Writings.”  He addressed thousands of cases of Cholera and Scarlet Fever using these same homeopathic principles and homoprophylaxis in his lifetime. All this from having first translated the works of a Scottish Physician, Dr. Cullen, from English into German.

 

Studies Backing up HP Efficacy

Back in 2009, we wrote a blog about one of the most monumental successes in homeopathic history! The country of Cuba could not afford to buy allopathic vaccines with its $3 million dollar price tag and so they used the principles of homoprophylaxis for Leptospirosis infections, instead. The bacterial infections after flooding each year were harming thousands of individuals (some even were dying) prior the introduction of this preventative nosode. The results are cited here:

“Cuba goes through a yearly cycle of Leptospirosis epidemic, especially after the hurricanes flood the countryside and water pollution reaches its height. (Leptospirosis: infectious disease caused by the spirochaete Leptospira transmitted to humans from rats, giving jaundice and kidney damage. Can cause death). Annually the population is exposed to the disease, most especially after hurricanes. Until Aug 2007, the Finlay Institute (a part of the Ministry of Public Health, Cuba) has been distributing its own allopathic Lepto vaccination. August is the height of the hurricane season. Annually, many are left homeless, flooded out and under the stress of disaster situation. There is a sharp rise in the lepto epidemic. The usual expectancy of infection even with allopathic vaccination would have been around a few thousands, with some deaths included. Part of the reason for this is that the high cost of vaccination prevents putting but the most at-risk populations (ie children, pregnant women, elderly) on vaccination. The cost of such limited vaccination is about US$3,000.000.

But in Aug 2007, Finlay put approximately [2,500,000] people (yes! 5 million doses!) in 2 provinces on homeopathic nosode prophylaxis at the cost of about only US$ 200,000. That figure represents the entire population of the 2 provinces. The prophylaxis consisted of 2 single doses about 2 weeks apart. Included in the dose was the Lepto nosode + some Bach flower remedies to address the mental distress of the disaster situation. How very amazing it was to watch this presentation being made. Up to the point, the presenters were showing us graph after graph of the usual rise of the epidemic, year after year, even with the use of allopathic vaccination. Each year the graphs would edge higher and higher towards the year-end, reaching up to the thousands of infected. But this time, within 2 weeks after Aug 2007, the rising lines literally dropped off the chart to ZERO-Ten infections only! Yes. Near-zero infections, zero deaths from leptospirosis after Aug 2007. And in 2008, no deaths, infections less than 10 a month.”

Other studies include:

  • Influenza (International Journal of High Dilution Research 2011; 10(36):174-176)
  • Meningitis in Brazil (85,000 people (Mroninski, Adriano, Mattos. Homeopathic Links, Winter 2001, Vol 14(4))
  • Japanese encephalitis in India (20 million people (Srinivasulu, G.An Open Observational Study on the prevention of Japanese Encephalitis through Miasmatic Prescription, Journal of Homoeopathy,U.K. 2014))

The efficacy of homoprophylaxis can not be disputed. It is so robust, without causing an ounce of harm, exceeding the effectiveness of any allopathic, conventional vaccine without any dangerous or deadly side effects. Please review the studies above for further proof.

 

Which HP Immunizations Would I Choose?

Those of you leaping the fence from the allopathic side (I was once one of you too until my son was severely damaged) will be curious about antibodies and titres and such as a marker of immunity. As we’ve written in our book, “The Vaccination Myth and The Immunization Answer; How to Use Homoprophylaxis to Easily Obtain Natural Immunity,” this is in fact not an accurate marker as all individuals respond uniquely on the level of their immune function to ward off pathogens.

Pleomorphic shifts in disease can vary and folks with higher levels of antibodies to that disease can still get sick. Kids shedding diseases after vaccines can in fact infect vaccinated kids (read our book when it comes out with all these citations if you like). Natural immunity is not an arbitrary, mechanical measurement of titres or antibodies, but an informed, labile, motile discerning, God-endowed, lifelong immunity to diseases based on homoprophylactic exposure in a safe environment where not an ounce of harm can occur. This is how nature intended you to be!

Folks that contact us for HP are typically looking to prevent the following:

  • Childhood diseases, such as : Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Diphtheria, Pertussis, and Polio
  • Epidemics, such as Influenza
  • Endemic Diseases, such as Leptospirosis, Ebola, Zika, Sars etc.
  • Travel Immunizations, such as Hep. A, Hep. B., Dengue Fever, Yellow Fever, Malaria, Cholera, etc. (both endemic or epidemics depending)

The dosing for the prevention of each disease depends much on the health of the individual and the virulence of the disease. In healthy kids we immunize with an oral “green vaccine” about once every 3 years. In the case of the flu, typically once in the Fall and once in January, again, depending on the health of the individual and whether or not we’ve done prior timeline or Genetic Miasm therapy with them using Dr. Hahnemann’s principles of Heilkunst.

In the case of an endemic issues, again it depends on how significant the issue is and how prevalent the infectious, or protracted, nature in the population was in the past. In many cases, we administer the remedy and watch for a healing reaction which will inform us how best to proceed with (and when) for the next dose. This is how medical science, tailored to the individual, has been rendered for hundreds of years prior to allopathy and their one-size-fits-all approach.

We’ve never had a patient challenged at the border when travelling or restricted from attending school in Canada (we’re protected by our Constitution … thank God) or even when crossing borders worldwide (although we expect this to change in the U.S. as Big Pharma attempts to squeeze {or murder*} us holistic physicians). In Canada, you can still abstain from vaccines based on the signing of the form of “Religious and Conscious Beliefs.” Just ask, we’ve got copies in our office that we can send to you. The frustrating part is that you have to have a person who’s designated to sign a “declaration of oaths” and apply their official seal to the original. However, a copy remains on file at schools, camps and other institutions exempting your child from having to be vaccinated. In some States, your rights are being infringed upon (ie. Bill SB277 in California) so you’ll have to research on a State by State basis what your exemption rights are.

Administering The Actual Dose

After an initial consultation, we will ship the homoprophylaxis remedies to your door by mail or courier. Nursing moms will just simply take the dose themselves for their infant or toddler. Children that are ingesting solids don’t have issue with taking their potato starch remedy or the ones made up with vitamin C powder or lactose powder given that it just dissolves on the tongue in less than 2-5 seconds. You can watch here as “Wee Willow Takes Her Remedy” if you’d like to see one of our littlest patients administered her remedy by her Mom. More elderly patients often seeking prevention for the annual flu will have no issue taking their homoprophylactic flu dose by mouth or in their water or food.

In the Words of a Brand new Homeschooling Mom

12308473_989024061157452_7827027006852178667_n

“As I shift my thinking from our seemingly traditional way of educating children, to the new way of learning with worldschooling, unschooling, homeschooling, it’s given me some unique perspectives, although I bet many of you have found this to be true as well. Families who school traditionally always seem angry, frustrated, stressed. Not just with themselves, but with their children as well. They have that set schedule, and heaven forbid if it doesn’t work out as planned! The kids don’t get up on time, don’t do as they are told in a timely manner, etc., etc. The kids fight everyday, about things that no longer seem that important to me.

It’s amazing how much time, energy and effort families are putting into getting to school on time, (kids) behaving in school, doing well in school. Their lives are essentially put on hold … for school. Instead of learning around their life schedule, they are living around a school schedule. This is not conducive to a happy home I’m finding.

Just this morning, a friend posted on FB that her morning had gone to hell in a hand basket because no one was cooperating, no one was was dressed on time for school, lunches weren’t made yet because she had spent her early morning fighting with the kids to get them up on time and such… all so that they can get to a building on time! I posted on her status “You know … Homeschooling would fix this … Set your schedule, or don’t!” She agreed, but left it at that.

I’m also finding parents can not wait until their little ones are five, so that they can drop them off at school and let them be someone else’s issue for 6 hours. They want “Me time” again. Ok sure! I get that! Everyone needs some quality alone time to recharge, but it seems like it’s become a tradition to push our children away and on to complete strangers in hopes that they will learn something.

I watched Lainie Liberti ‘s Tedx Talk she just posted.. and the line where she says that she put a lot of focus on Education and school … but that the only goal for that was for her son to become educated. No other goal… and such a vague goal it was too, just being Educated seems to mean absolutely nothing these days. You can be educated and still have no clue about the world around you, be dense to common sense and compassion.

Come to think of it,  the North American way of Parenting is extremely flawed I think. We love and nurture a growing baby in the womb, but as soon as they are born we detach ourselves from them. We push them away so often because “its good for them” that we send them to School at 2.5 years of age … calling it “Pre-School” why? what is this 2.5 year old learning? I’m not even sure.

Anyways …Total epiphany this morning! This past weekend (May Long Weekend, Victoria Day) was a sneak peek into what our new lives as homeschoolers will be like. We slept in, we did what interested us, no expectations, no set schedule, we were together as a family. I turned off the TV after lunch, we read, jumped on the trampoline, colored to our heart’s content. We were just US … togetherness. It was Amazing! I enjoyed it immensely!! As did the kids!

The more I learn about this way of Learning, the more I know it’s right for us.” ~ Candice Robertson, Worldschoolers Facebook Page
