Emotional Hygiene

Support-Relief-Reslience-Skillful response-

Feel the icky feelings of your own experience of diseased emotional vibes and spend time cleansing and educating your entire emotional experience of life. This is time well invested. Let’s look at 3 aspects to begin:

Trapped emotion currently beyond our conscious access

Unprocessed emotion and bad seed of poor emotional beliefs

The dance of support and relief

We won’t let it out unless we feel safe, proeteced and provisioned. There’s just no time because we are always in survival mode and cannot affort to give time to this- wrong - This is most important and influences every other reality of relationship which is the source of all circumstances.

Emotional toxicity festers and infects. Only regular cleaning can keep it in check. This is true for you, me and everybody. Each person should switch around their priorities and feel more fully into this reality of life.

Being emotionally savvy is the greatest skill for success in an matter. It all depends on listening with our whole being. Being aware means noticing that the other person(s) is elemental to your own process in life.

Emotional maturity begins with the duty of emotional hygiene practices. Are you upset, feeling unloved, abused...etc. Or you have infected others with those diseased emotions. Then make the time today, a lot of time to just feel the emotinoal experience of your own life. You will see that most of the same patterns are repeating and basically are the emotions programmed into you by your upbrinding and life experiences. But, that’s just it. These are only programs. So, run an emotional virus scan and let it do its work. This means allowing the emotion of being love and being loving to wash you. Slow down your sense of time and relief, contentment and positive emotions to overwrite your emotional paradigm.

Somebody taughts us to ‘stay starving’ as that is a way to get more. But, this is not the way which brings fulfillment. Releif your emotional dramas and choose fulfillment independent of circumstance; that’s the key.

Please just relax. The sense of urgency is often simply self created unreasonably. Living life in such urgency perpetually creating a big production even out of small matters is unhealthy and robs us of vital life energy. We perpetualte such dramas only because we do not know how to get energy for ourselves and have to bounce off of others. We feel our mooring is outside of ourselves. It is not. Our ship, anchor, sails and winds are all acutally within; go there.

The biological biography keeps a record of our emotions yet how often do we go there for scheduled mainainance and upgrades?

DISCHARGING, CONTENING, SATIATING, ENJOYING

These are basic elements of Emotional Hygiene. Take each one 10 seconds at a time each day and watch your emotional balance improved. That’s just 40 seconds per day. It can be in any order you like.

EMOTIONAL EDUCATION

At the end of this document there is a long list of emotions. Read through them slowly, carefully. Begin to become more familiar with the subtleties of emotional feeling. Over time, this yields amazing returns for the wellness of our lives

Basically Fear and Love

Are you clear about what you are feeling and emoting? A 40 year study by Berkely determined that our emotional intelligence is 4 times more important than our IQ in determining overall success in life. So, It’s EQ over IQ not the other way around.

Emotional Support is the defining quality of personal success in any matter.

How does this emotional support happen? Will it occur if you are more powerful, successful and/or sexy? Are such qualities related to genuine emotional success?

These are the questions we will explore in this writing. Together let’s dive deep into our individual and personal emotional feeling.

Emotinoal feeling is both a phsycial and psychological sensation that is sometimes joined together.

As we recognize the true roots of mind/body wellness we discover a relationship with emotional and physical feeling.

This is where it all starts-The journey within our own bodies to discover what is going on within.

“The kingdom of heaven is within you.”

J.C.

I think Jesus meant that as we improve in ‘embodiment’ we also improve in our emotional coherence which eventually leads us into the transcendental/omni awareness present when we go through the portals within and wind up ‘non local’ in our presence.

Letting time pass without any notice nor concern

Enjoying the passage of time

Invite them come to you and remain separate from their decision to do so or not.

People will use your emotional starvation against you and trap you by pretending to be in a win/win with you when really most people are so in survival mode that every action they make is a deceptive ploy to trap you into their purpose.

Diseased Anger is a tragic expression of an unment need

Everything we do is for an emotional return

Do not become overly concerned with controlling or domininating. True leadership and authority that can enforce is given not taken. Once it is given only then can we ‘take control.’ Attempting to do so before it is given is not sustainable.

There are issues in your tissues

Your biology reflects your biography. Where in your body to you feel your emotional issues?

Take a deep breath. A 1935 movie. In a movie I watched last night made in 1935 last night one person suggested to another for them to ‘take a deep breath’ so that they could release stress, settle down, calm down and regain their composure. Good Advice. The simple act of breathing deep and making our breathing pattern slow and steady is a core exercise for us all to practice. Can we invest the time to really calm down or should we just keep going at full speed all the time. The answer we give here says much about what direction we are headed in.

When asked to write about emotions I do find myself at a loss. So many emotions and too much lack of peace and trust. So much inner and outer conflict that it seems quite the accomplishment just to get some peace and I’m sure that is the way for emotional healing yet I think about it much more than I feel it.

These are the tools for emotionally maturing that I use:

How can you have a commentary or a proposal for how you are going to solve the problem all the time. Watching the democratic and republican debates I am just taken back that a whole world participates in a set of people talking about solutions only; hardly saying I don’t know, we need something we don’t have…etc.

IF YOU DON’T HAVE AN UNRESOLVABLE PROBLEM THEN YOU CANNOT EXPERIENCE AS GREAT SOLUTION.

Embrace with guidance the navigating of your skills; emotional and physical. By learning and doing new things that are out of our comfort zone we are engaging the greatest way for making new and healthy connections in our brain/neurology. It is the key to brain fitness.

Living with feeling as a major navigator and helping us to make decisions instead of just thinking about it.

Questions:

How do I find emotional support?

How do I set boundaries without loosing balance or endangering myself?

When I feel threatened how do I maintain composure and enforce proper boundaries?

How do I express negative emotions without making things worse?

It seems like I don’t want to make anyone angry with me and I feel that if I do I could be hurt in one way or another. Yet, I also realize that I need to protect my ‘agenda.’

I could talk from my head and give all sorts of answers as if I knew them but the truth is that I’m emotionally starved. This ‘emotional starvation’ seems to be the root of all our problems.

Points about my emotional state:

It seems that I compromise myself by getting into relationships where I can get something then compromising myself because of the feeling that I must do so to get ‘the sale’ ‘the discounted price’ ‘the grace’ etc. It seems that all this is a kind of manipulation for me not to have to be responsible for myself.

The article below gives some great tips to practice. I, for one, seem like I do not have another choice other than following some good advice and guidance because obviously I simply cannot do this without following guidance.

Please buy a card deck of all emotions

Mix them together on a table from time to time and notice what emotions stick out as you look around.

Here is a brief summary that is at the end of the first article:

Every minute, every one of us is alive with needs and values, seeking expression. You love to live in harmony with your values, and you love to contribute to others' experience of harmony, when you can do so with no element of coercion involved. Moment by moment, with honesty and empathy, you can meet your needs, and bring your values to life. Practicing these 10 Steps you truly can transform anger into compassionate connections.

Here are a few articles I found on the net.

http://www.naturalchild.org/marshall_rosenberg/ten_steps.html

The 10 Steps

When we feel angry, three things are happening.

1) We are upset because we are not getting our needs met.

2) We are blaming someone or something else for not getting what we want.

3) We are about to speak or act in such a way that will almost guarantee we will not get what we need, or that we will later regret.

When we are angry, we focus almost completely on what we don't want and our thinking is caught up in images of the wrongness of others that are involved. We have lost sight of what we really do want and need.

Using the following steps you will learn how to change this pattern and connect with the life-serving purpose of anger. You will discover where anger comes from and learn how to express it in ways that meet both your needs and the needs of others. Use these steps for re-focusing your attention during an angry conflict and learn to create outcomes that are satisfying for everyone involved.

Step 1:

Think of anger as a red light on your dashboard.

Every minute, every one of us

is alive with needs and values,

seeking expression.

Evidence for entrainment by external fields

The Schumann oscillations propagate for long distances and readily penetrate through the walls of buildings and into the human body. Schumann frequencies have considerable overlap with biomagnetic fields such as those produced by

Fig. 7.4 The Schumann resonance is a unique electromagnetic phenomenon created by the sum of the lightning activity around the world. Electromagnetic pulses from lightning travel around the earth, bouncing back and forth between the ionosphere and the earth's surface. At any given point on the earth, the Schumann resonance shows up as electric and magnetic micropulsations in the range of 1-40 Hz. The frequency and strength of the signals depend on the distribution of global thunderstorm activity, local meteorological conditions and the conductivity of the earth's surface at the point of observation. Bursts of Schumann pulses are easier to detect in fair weather, and occur more often during the day than at night. These terrestrial factors are, in turn, influenced by more distant extraterrestrial factors, such as solar and lunar position, sun spots, planetary positions, etc. (See Pressman 1970, Dubrov 1978.) (After Bentov 1976, Fig. 16, p. 145, with kind permission from Integral Publishing.)

the heart and brain, but the Schumann resonance is thousands of times stronger. The similarity of a train of Schumann signals and an alpha brain wave are shown in Figure 7.5.

A number of biologists have concluded that the frequency overlap of Schumann resonances and biological fields is not accidental, but is the culmination of a close interplay between geomagnetic and biomagnetic fields over evolutionary time (e.g. Dircnfeld 1983). Hence researchers have examined interactions between external fields and biological rhythms.

Organisms are capable of sensing the intensity, polarity, and direction of the geomagnetic field (Gould 1984). There is evidence that geomagnetic rhythms serve as a time cue in the organization of physiological rhythms (e.g. Wever 1968, Gauguelin 1974, Cremer-Bartels et al 1984), although this continues to be controversial. A variety of behavioral disturbances in the human population are statistically related to disturbances in the earth's electromagnetic field or to man-made interferences:

Friedman et al (1965) documented a relationship between increased geomagnetic activity and the rate of admission of patients to 35 psychiatric facilities.

Venkatraman (1976) and Rajaram & Mitra (1981) reported an association between changes in the geomagnetic field due to magnetic storms and frequency of seizures in epileptic patients.

Perry et al (1981) correlated suicide locations in the West Midlands, England, with high magnetic field strengths due to 50 Hz power lines.

Many studies have demonstrated the probable entrainment of brain waves by external rhythms of natural and artificial origin:

■# Reiter (1953) measured reaction time, an important factor in traffic safety. Upon entering a cubicle at a traffic exhibition, visitors were asked to press a key. When a light came on, they were to release pressure on the key. Their reaction time (i.e. the time between Tight on' and 'key release') was recorded for many thousands of visitors over a 2-month period. At the same time, the ELF micropulsations (Schumann resonances) were monitored. The micropulsations slow when a thunderstorm is approaching, and Reiter found that the subjects were slower to respond during such periods. When the micropulsations speeded up, into the range of alpha brain wave activity, reaction times were faster.

of the earth's field. Under these controlled conditions, the effects of the fields on reaction time were comparable to those obtained during the exhibition. Moreover, subjects in the laboratory experiments repeatedly complained about headaches, tightness in the chest, and sweating of the palms after several minutes of exposure to 3 cycle/second fields. When the headaches faded away, there was often a feeling of fatigue. These symptoms resemble the so-called 'weather sensitivity' complaints that some people have before the arrival of a thunderstorm.

^ Hamer (1968, 1969) pulsed subjects with low intensity artificial electric fields from metal plates on each side of their heads. Fields of 8-10 Hz speeded up reaction time, while slower oscillations of 2-3 Hz slowed down reaction times significantly. Similar results were reported by Friedman and colleagues in 1967.

# In 1977, Beatty reported studies on the practical significance of brain wave entrainment for people such as air traffic controllers, who need to maintain an alert state for long periods. Subjects monitored a simulated radar screen, watching for certain targets to appear. In agreement with the findings of Reiter and Hamer, slower brain waves were correlated with slower reaction times and poorer performance in the task.

#■ Over many years, Wever (1968) and colleagues at the Max Planck Institute in Germany observed hundreds of subjects who lived in two underground rooms that were shielded from external rhythms of light, temperature, sound, pressure, etc. One room also had an electromagnetic shield around it, consisting of a mesh of steel rods and plates that reduced the influence of geomagnetic rhythms by 99%. The rhythms of body temperature, sleep-waking, urinary excretion, and other physiological activities were monitored. All subjects developed longer and irregular or desynchronized or chaotic physiological rhythms. Those in the magnetically shielded room developed significantly longer and more irregular physiological rhythms. In some experiments, artificial electric and magnetic rhythms were pulsed into the shielding. Only one field had any effect: a very weak 10 Hz electric field. This field dramatically restored normal patterns to the biorhythm measurements.

Each of these important but seldom cited studies concluded that biological rhythms can be entrained with natural and artificial ELF electric fields. Entrainment of brain waves can set the overall speed of responsiveness of the nervous system to stimulation. This is called reaction time, and is an easily measured parameter of consciousness. The results support Becker's contention

that the pulsing DC electrical system (brain waves) set the tone of the entire nervous system.

These studies do not mean that when a thunderstorm approaches, everyone will get drowsy and react slowly, and accidents will happen. Instead, they suggest that there is a statistically greater chance of slower reactions and more frequent accidents under these conditions. Geomagnetic pulsations do not affect everyone the same way. However, there is evidence that geomagnetic pulsations strongly entrain brain waves during meditation and other practices in which one 'quiets the mind' to allow the 'free-run' periods to be dominated by geophysical rhythms.

Mechanism of entrainment

The internal pathways involved in the body's responses to external magnetic rhythms are shown in Figure 7.6. The pineal gland is the primary magnetoreceptor. Between 20 and 30% of pineal cells are magnetically sensitive. Exposure of animals to magnetic fields of various intensities alters the secretion of melatonin, the electrical properties of pineal cells, and their microscopic structure (reviewed by Sandyk 1995). In addition, various animal tissues contain particles of organic magnetite. Two separate research groups have now recorded magnetically influenced impulses in single neurons connecting magnetite-bearing tissues with the brain (reviewed by Kobayashi & Kirschvink 1995).

The question of whether living systems are sensitive to the earth's magnetic field has been bitterly controversial for more than a century. There are now a number of plausible and well-documented mechanisms for such interactions, and abundant evidence that they take place. Moreover, Becker's research has shown how geomagnetic entrainment of the brain waves can affect the entire nervous system at a very high level of control (i.e. the perineural DC system that extends throughout the body and has roles in regulating injury repair).

In terms of an energetic paradigm for bodywork and movement therapies, there is no need for us to hypothesize that geomagnetic fields, modified by terrestrial and extraterrestrial events, entrain brain waves. Scientists from around the world have already done so, and continue to build solid supporting evidence.

The next chapter explores how these concepts may apply in the therapeutic setting.

brainwaves are not being entrained by the thalamus, the Schumann resonance can take over as the pacemaker, particularly if the individual is in a relaxed or meditative state (Schumann signals are thousands of times stronger than brainwaves). The brainwaves regulate the overall tone of the nervous system and the state of consciousness. The electrical currents of the brainwaves are conducted throughout the body by the perineural and vascular systems. The biomagnetic field projected from the hands can be much stronger than the brainwaves (Seto et ai 1992) indicating that an amplification of at least 1000 times takes place somewhere in the body. Alternatively, the body may simply act as an effective antenna or channel for the Schumann micropulsations.

Emotional Exchange-

Fast and furious because many are just trying to find a way to control and use the other person so we need to be very aware and self sourcing. Self sourcing because if we thing someone else has something to give us that can solve our personal problem then we are more likely to just become food for their purpose.

Take time to feel and think about the other persons experience.

Facial recognition: Really pay attention. Can you recognize the emotional experience others are going through?

Feeling better and better and better is the only success in life. Notice I did not say thinking better, nor doing better….Feeling better is first and foremost then the other two are naturally fueled. So, I leave us with this question to discuss. How can we feel better? Seems simple yet it significantly eludes me to this day.

Grace is a wonderful reality told to us by the wisest of people. Can you and I improve the feeling and ability grace? Yes, we can-by getting help and by practice. It can and does get better so let’s just keep going ok? OK.

The fundamental problem in addiction is the destructive nature of the substance abuse and the inability to stop. The frontal regions of brain control behaviors including planning and organization, motivation for goal directed activity, weighing consequences of future actions and impulse inhibition, known collectively as executive functions. The PFC projects to ACC and OFC, with all 3 projecting to the VS, a dopamine rich area important for expression of behaviors. Frontal cortical damage occurs with binge drinking intoxication. Dysfunction in specific regions of brain contributes to an imbalance between craving-limbic drive and frontal cortical attention and executive functions, particularly reflection and inhibitory control. PFC, ACC and OFC all contribute to executive functions and inhibition of impulses. Impulsive behaviors result from impaired executive functions since they include actions that are poorly conceived, prematurely expressed, unduly risky or inappropriate to the situation, which often result in undesirable consequences. Thus, addiction is likely due in part to increased impulsiveness from the loss of frontal cortical inhibition of impulses and increased limbic drive.

The discovery of a key role of the frontal cortex in addiction provides new approaches to therapy. Adolescent age and genetics are clear risk factors for neurodegeneration that could inform strategies to reduce drinking in high-risk populations and thereby prevent the progressive neurodegeneration and impulsive-addictive changes. Further, existing therapies for addiction involve frontal cortical activation. Naltrexone, a pharmacotherapy for alcoholism, increases OFC activity. Abstinence from alcohol induces brain regrowth and return of some cognitive abilities. Addiction therapies focused on enhancing abstinent brain activity and growth could become new approaches to treating addiction. In any case, there is substantial evidence that addiction is related to loss of frontal lobe function and increased impulsivity.
