Meditation – The Stress Relief Secret When Your Mind Is Full
Meditation – The Stress Relief Secret When Your Mind Is Full By 0 Life Inspired By Nature “Here we are – the soldiers of life. We long for a paradise with tranquility. Relying on angels to arrive. Never realizing they are already here. Also, they do not wear their armor for fun.” ~ Maria Lehtman H ow do you train your mind? Do you realize that as complex beings our mind is a renewable engine? We are never ready – never complete. However, our minds can become stronger. When meditation is not enough “Meditation is the soul’s perspective glass.” ~ Owen Feltham My meditation studies began when I was 5-years old. Accompanying my parents to Norway one summer I learned from the pioneers of the transcendental meditation (TM). I practiced alongside my parents and learned to offset some of the pains that I had. I suffered from headaches and migraines very early on. At the time, there was not enough support for the right nutrition, physical training, and physiotherapy that could have helped me further. About transcendental meditation: “Perhaps its greatest benefit is that it’s relatively quick to learn and easy to master. No waiting weeks or months of practice before you see results: TM cuts right to the chase, taking only days — or for some, minutes — before one feels a reprieve from their painful and overwhelming thoughts.” ~ Forbes During the meditation retreat, everyone received a personal mantra. Repeating the mantra and breathing exercise, I would sit meditating next to my mother. I had my meditation timer set for 10 minutes, and then I was free to go and play. Growing up I continued to meditate although less frequently. I was creative and kept hobbies that today are called mindfulness practices. I had no idea that my 8-year old girl’s hobbies would later be considered mindfulness practices. Decades and many more courses later, not to mention rigorous years of team leadership in a tight and competitive ICT field, I hardly believed a day would come when none of my methodologies would work! I had learned to calm my mind with single commands, such as: “Reduce stress level by 30%,” with an immediate response. This year my mind found its limits of meditative tranquility. The impossible had become real. How have I managed from that point on? Leaning on energy healing and grounding through nature “Meditation is to be aware of every thought and of every feeling, never to say it is right or wrong, but just to watch it and move with it. In that watching, you begin to understand the whole movement of thought and feeling. And out of this awareness comes silence.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti After years of practicing complicated energy healing, I did not foresee a day when my childhood mantra would become my only rescue. Lately, my meditation method has been walkabouts in nature, calmly, without too much hurry. Sitting down and admiring the lakes and trees if I feel tired. Taking pictures when I feel like it. If I do not want to bother, I leave my mobile in the car and my heavy Nikon at home. When I have tried to reach out in any way to my inner core, or the channels that connect us to the universe, I have felt broken. Something inside me, where I know our identity sits, has no longer been responding correctly. I know, that trauma endured during the past year cannot be overlooked. Moreover, for the first time in my entire life, I see my body react appropriately in social events with my sympathy and empathy working as programmed while knowing that I have no possibility of reaching in for the deeper connection within me. Yes, that happens – and no, there are no treatments, medication, yogis, therapies, gurus or fix-it methods for me. Why? Because there is only one person, who has decades of history of what the identity matrix should look like. The one was looking back from my mirror. When I hit that point, I started to follow my earlier methodology learned during my peaks of fibromyalgia. Here is one of the basic practices: Calming an overwhelmed mind:
Do not let thoughts occupy your mind even when they enter your mind. When going gets tough, lie down (or sit comfortably) and focus on breathing. You do not have to think about any specific techniques, breathe and focus your vision, e.g., on a tree behind the window, a painting or a photograph you enjoy. If it helps, close your eyes and imagine a place you love (a beach, a peer, sitting on a river bank). Do not let thoughts occupy your mind even when they enter your mind. Keep your vision on the mark, and let the thoughts pass through you as if they were not part of you at all. Consider that all that clutter entering your mind is like leaves in the wind whirling across the street. If you can make it in one piece for the next 10 minutes, you can make it another 10 minutes and so on. Until finally, you feel grounded enough to stand up and do something practical. Learning a mantra: You do not need a specific retreat to gain a mantra. You can associate any word or words to work with your mind and body. For example: Breathing in think of the word: ‘relax.’ Breathing out think of the word: ‘calm.’ You can also choose any positive word, a phrase, or a short prayer like a Sanjeevini and repeat it in your mind when panic sets in. Connecting with your inner circle of trust Despite my continuous efforts, I hit a complete wall. I asked my friend, a skilled healer, to help me out – seeking out options when my road seemed blocked. Until one night, we both knew I had to replace energy connections from the very past causing my trauma and panic. It all happened late in the evening. I was sitting in my car thinking about how to do the impossible. I knew my mind was going to be my worst enemy. My day-to-day crust protecting my trauma was getting so thin that any meditation only triggered a worse impact. I had to fix the underlying matrix. I took my healing wands and initiated a connection with my energy. Immediately the pain and trauma came over me like a moving train. I searched back to any thought that could help me get through the healing session. Suddenly I thought of the mantra I had learned as a child. I repeated it on the back of my mind over and over again. After two hours of fighting back the tears, pain, overwhelming emotions that seemed to come in from everywhere at once, I completed the healing. I felt as if a hurricane around me had withdrawn. I was completely exhausted. However, scanning my inner energy vortex, I found something substantial. A response. A new beginning. The gift of winning your mind-battle
Your price in learning mind-calming techniques is that you can move through a trauma cycle without anyone else getting hurt on the way . Meditation and mindfulness do help . There will be days when your mental strength is tested to the limit. There will be a battle, and you will feel like a pawn with your identity at stake. Make sure you build a practice and self-discipline to prepare for those days. Build up the armor your mind needs. Your price in learning mind-calming techniques is that you can move through a trauma cycle without anyone else getting hurt on the way . You may take damage, but you do not bring down others with you. When you do not isolate yourself from your circle of trust – you will always have people supporting you. And remember: The only regret is regret itself! Winning a battle never feels like a victory, but it can feel like the sea calming after a stormy night. Keep up the practice! And no, you do not even have to believe in it. You need to keep up the method of calming your mind. Your subconscious association and neural connections will work for you. Meditation is a powerful technology to create self-awareness and your place in the world. “Half an hour’s meditation each day is essential, except when you are busy. Then a full hour is needed.” ~ Saint Francis de Sales Sources: Transcendental meditation® TM ǀ https://www.tm.org/ Transcendental meditation ǀ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transcendental_Meditation
Comment on Could A Chiropractor Help With Your Pain? by Ridley Fitzgerald
Home » Blog » CAREGIVING » Could A Chiropractor Help With Your Pain? July 17, 2017 By Rena McDaniel 11 Comments Could A Chiropractor Help With Your Pain?
Chiropractors use spinal alignment correction in order to treat a range of different health issues. The most common ones include various muscular and skeletal disorders, spinal alignment and general pain relief. Some individuals have even used chiropractic care to successfully treat problems such as disorders of the connective tissues, lactose intolerance in infants and even migraines.
What makes chiropractic care so popular is the fact that it is a non-invasive, drug-free solution which, when performed adequately achieves amazing results. That said, let’s go over some of the conditions that can be helped with a trip to the chiropractor. Pregnancy pain
Aching and pain are a pretty common occurrence during pregnancy. What most people don’t realize is that improper pelvic alignment might be the one to blame for the pain in the lower back and sciatica, which pregnant women often treat using chiropractic care. Future mothers have rather limited options when it comes to alleviating pain as most treatments have the potential to harm their fetus and chiropractic treatment is often their best option. There’s a complete maneuver used to address sacroiliac joint and sacrum in order to balance the pelvis called the Webster Technique . According to some reports, the technique in question has an 82% success rate and should preferably be performed during the 8th month of pregnancy. High Blood Pressure
In an effort to find a solution for controlling high blood pressure, some researchers have put chiropractic care to use. They have tested a realignment procedure that is performed on the spine to adjust the Atlas vertebra. That is the bone at the top of your spine that sticks out the most. This was done for eight weeks and once Atlas was realigned with the rest of the spine, the patients who’ve had the procedure performed had considerably lower blood pressure. Bell’s Palsy
Bell’s Palsy is a condition which causes hearing disorders, paralysis of the facial muscles and issues with the jaw and the muscles supporting it. The recovery process varies from one patient to another. With enough time to fully understand the patient’s problem, professional chiropractors can actually create individual treatment programs used to relieve pain, improve motion and help with nerve-related issues. A 49-year-old woman who suffered from this condition received chiropractic care over a 6-month period and showed overall improvements. Headaches
Headaches are the second most common condition regularly treated using chiropractic care , with the first being general pain. There are many reasons why we suffer from headaches, including alcohol abuse, processed food, sleep deprivation, hunger, stress, as well as pain originating from nerves in the cervical part of the spine. An experienced chiropractor can manually loosen up the muscles and joints in order to alleviate the pressure on the nerve. This is particularly useful with patients suffering from neck-induced pains and headaches. Asthma-related pain
Asthma is an agonizing condition followed by intense spasms of the bronchi in the lungs which make it extremely difficult to breathe. When struggling for air, those experiencing an asthma attack tend to cough regularly. Constant coughing can lead to pain in the mid-back which additionally worsens the entire situation. Although chiropractors can’t cure asthma, they can help by relieving pain in the posterior musculature caused by it. This is particularly useful for small children who are often the ones who are afflicted by this condition. Lower-back pain
This is one of the most popular, or should I say requested, technique. Pain in the lower back has become widespread due people spending more and more time sitting behind a computer, both at home and at work. A skilled chiropractor can easily manipulate the sacroiliac joint to alleviate pain. Some chiropractors have a certificate to perform the Active Release Technique said to relieve the muscles from scar tissue and relieve pain at the same time, making it an ideal treatment for lower-back pain. This is why it’s important to avoid cheap and unlicensed practitioners and only go for the most experienced chiropractor Perth can offer. ADHD
ADHD is a condition often treated with prescription drugs such as Ritalin. However, simply stuffing our children with drugs is hardly going to solve the problem. This is exactly why researchers have tried to use other, less destructive options. Chiropractic care is one of them and it has shown some rather promising results in treating kids suffering from ADHD. There are numerous researches which have linked posture with brain and motor activities and helping realign the spine becomes a perfectly reasonable answer when compared to hard drugs.
These are just some of the numerous disorders and issues that can either be treated or positively affected using chiropractic care. From headaches and pregnancy pains to attention disorders and asthma, in some cases, even inflammatory bowel disease and therapeutic support for patients with cancer, the chiropractic care has proved itself to be an invaluable technique for non-invasive treatment. So why not give it a go? (Visited 150 times, 2

San Francisco Bay View » Deceptions, lies and misappropriation of funds at McConnell Prison in Texas
September 17, 2018
by Keith ‘Malik’ Washington
Written Sept. 4, 2018 – Today the heat and humidity inside my cell has reached a level which has caused me to feel dizzy, and I have been experiencing migraine headaches. Only five states air condition all their prisons. States in the Deep South, from Texas to Georgia and Florida, do not.
Senior U.S. District Judge Hilda Tagle denied my request for an emergency preliminary injunction. One of my main requests was that she order TDCJ to fix the inoperable and malfunctioning HVAC system here on the McConnell Ad-Seg Unit.
The specific area which has been affected the worst by the faulty HVAC system is F-Pod. F-Pod consists of six separate sections, A through F. Sections D, E and F have the worst living conditions on the unit, and sadly most of the inhabitants are Black and Latino males.
Invidious racism is a dark and dirty secret being covered up and masked down here on the McConnell Unit.
During the month of August 2018, while we were waiting on U.S. District Judge Tagle to answer my request for emergency intervention, Senior Warden Philip Sifuentes of McConnell Unit and TDCJ Region IV Director Miguel Martinez were formulating a plan to usurp and circumvent my request to have the agency fix this HVAC system, which has left prisoners to deal with inhumane conditions of confinement.
Here at the McConnell Unit, located in Beeville, Texas, the heat is a problem right now! McConnell Unit has cell-phone jammers, and possession of contraband cell phones has not been a major problem. However, Sifuentes and Martinez recently conspired to overstate the threat.
Instead of bringing contractors in to fix the inoperable HVAC system, Sifuentes decided to bring in contractors to install cell-phone blocker upgrades! So here we are in the midst of super humid and hot temperatures, prisoners here in McConnell Ad-Seg are sealed in cement ovens, and these oppressors spend $87,000 (eighty-seven thousand dollars) on cell-phone blockers?
And then, to add insult to injury, they charge that balance to the TDCJ Maintenance Department, which is now over budget, and has no money to fix the HVAC system, which has us suffocating and lying on the floor just to seek relief! Invidious racism is a dark and dirty secret being covered up and masked down here on the McConnell Unit.
What we need down here is a public information request and the comptroller in Austin to start investigating these violators of the public’s trust!
This is not the first time that TDCJ resorted to deceptions and lies in order to withhold humane living conditions from Texas prisoners.
Just recently, Jolie McCullough from the Texas Tribune reported that the $20 million estimate the prison agencies’ expert claimed it would take to install air conditioning at the Pack Unit in Navasota, Texas, has now gone down to $4 million – imagine that! This is not the first time that TDCJ resorted to deceptions and lies in order to withhold humane living conditions from Texas prisoners.
But you see, Sisters and Brothers, when these unethical liars were in the midst of the federal civil lawsuit where prisoners were challenging the unconstitutional conditions of their confinement, the state of Texas said and did anything it could to mislead and misinform “the trier of fact”! Will Judge Hilda Tagle be fooled? We shall see!
Dare to struggle, dare to win!
All power to the people!

We usually suggest B12, D, Thyroid and Iron are all looked at in addition to the usual tests done regarding Hughes Syndrome/APS.
