Where there is no joy left, we can be sure we have excluded the right-brained perspective. When all we can see is the hard wall of the corridor we are apparently walking and the printed signs and arrows on those wall saying we "must" go this way or that, we can be sure we have lost the over-view and its an imprisonment of sorts. "Down there' we can only go one or maybe two or three routes (some of its junctions are confusing thus they seem to offer choices...) but we have lost the very point of the journey if we no longer experience the very joy that makes us want to be here in a human body. So if diagnosis only brings limitation and fear, we need to make sure we don't lose sight of that other perspective...the broader perspective that allows us to see the whole point.
Receiving a set of black and white test results can make us feel very different about our health challenges; almost in a split second, like there is now something actively "wrong" with us or broken and this is one of the major pitfalls of the allopathic route. When we lock ourselves down into the perspectives of what is thought to be known or proven by “science” we shut off many avenues; likewise, when we remain open to looking at old data through new eyes, our own experiential eyes (not the inherited beliefs that are passed onto us by another) moment to moment, we leave the door wide open for a new set of circumstances to emerge, breaking the mould of any diagnostic paradigm that might otherwise have seemed so cut-and-dry, not to mention doom-laden. We might even get to turn that diagnosis around into the best news, instead of the worst (yes, I've seen this happen) leading to a very different outcome. Remember always, it's not the diagnosis that matters but the meaning that we give to it!
A new study supports the theory that the human autonomic nervous system registers space weather events "as they happen" and in their aftermath. Added to this, my own anecdotal experience of acute nerve pain during two weeks of intense space weather helps shed new light on this fascinating phenomenon. Exploring the ceaseless dialogue that we ALL have with the universe...and the opportunities this presents once we get beyond the fear-factor.
A new article about OCD popped into my emails this morning and it was so compelling that I felt I had to share it with my readership here...
What happens when others don’t take your optimistic viewpoint, when they insist on the “hell in a handbasket” view of what’s playing out? Or, at the subtler level, when family members or close friends go into their own blue funk, even if it's all just down to too much tiredness and so many work pressures that they can't see the wood for the trees? These little play-offs happen all the time in family, office or community life. When you learn to hold that special place that you’ve learned how to feel out for yourself, you help them to defuse and to meet you where your higher vibe is always waiting for them; and it's a well-accepted reality that a lower vibration will always acquiesce to the highest one available when there’s a play-off. “So why do I always get brought down by other people’s moods?” you might ask; because, at some level, you go back to meet them there - whether out of kindness, duty or the long-established expectation that their downturned viewpoint is an inevitable return or "more real" than your higher version. I've stopped doing that and here's how and why... (read more)
Looking at chronic health from the perspective of the Nine Waves of Creation has been about the most powerful thing I have ever written about; the perspectives I have gained are pure gold in my healing process and possibly yours too. If you have unanswered questions about "why do I have these health issues" I urge you to read on, this is just a small taster: "I have long considered my own health challenges to be a sign of “something going right” rather than “something going wrong” and have held on to the fact that I clearly signed up to be one of many forerunners of some sort of evolutionary leap that made the transition for me and those like me particularly hard, courageous and (by old paradigm terminology) inexplicable. The more doctors shake their heads at these kind of illnesses, the more I have felt like it is the doctors that are behind, not me, and that the science simply doesn’t exist to explain what I am going through. Things have softened up somewhat over the last decade and science is slowly getting more of a handle; perhaps, mostly, because it is starting to allow that it doesn’t have all of the answers. However it seems so obvious to me that the reason they don't get further than that is that they still insist on being able to pin-down and box-up these illnesses along with all the other conditions they manufacture pills for but what if they aren’t even meant to nail this one down using those methods? What if all they will ever capture, for a few minutes, are some of the symptoms…before those move on to play hide-and-seek somewhere else? What if that is the very nature of the beast because it doesn't WANT to be pinned down since it is trying to evolve us to a point where we cease this obsession with possessing and labelling and shape-sorting everything that we think we know? What doctors haven’t been seeing is that the very desire to pigeon hole everything in this way is a Seventh Wave perspective…and we are no longer under the day-time influence of that wave!"

The subtlest sensory cues may be the prompts that repeatedly set old feelings in motion again…but if you can shine some light on their source, and send some love and understanding back to the “you” of those times, great healing can be the result. As well as seeing that original event in all its glory - appreciating what the “you” of back then was subjected to and what they survived (which can bring massive healing all on its own), you could perhaps strive to make the current “offending” circumstances very different to the ones that hold the original wound since you know now what you are dealing with and what renews that sense of unspeakable discomfort in your life. Perhaps you could even delve into the wider circumstances of the trigger event to see if you can intuit what it was that helped catalyse the deeper trauma that took place. As ever, it is the light of consciousness that heals most powerfully in all these kinds of situation; allowing you to revisit what was only a partial and immaturely-assessed picture of circumstance when it first happened to you “in the past” and bringing a new depth of understanding to it with your current breadth and maturity of awareness.
