It is commonplace in the United States to hear people complain about drugs, medications, and vaccines. Many people I know do not want to use them, particularly vaccines. This point of view has various rationales: drugs are ineffective, drugs have side effects, natural remedies are better, the drug companies are out to rip us off, etc. While all of these assertions have some truth in them, these people are in danger of throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
You’re staying home.
You’re washing hands.
You’re drinking water.
Are you still anxious?
Do you realize the entire world is now focusing single-pointedly on well-being?
Everyone in their own way.
Vast numbers, hidden, like stars in the sky in the daylight.
The doctors and nurses and researchers in their way.
The caregivers in their way.
The people of all religions in their way.
The light-workers in their way.
The world is stopped, on pause, from its frenetic pace.
Perhaps people, the earth, and our busy-ness need a rest.
The roads are empty.
Perhaps people see better “nearsighted” now and then.
People look for groceries and food.
Perhaps people appreciate better the abundance we took for granted.
People’s daily routines are all “off-kilter” and disrupted.
Perhaps the habits were also a box that now is not.
Hi, it’s Marilyn Fuller again: health coach, nurse, nutritionist.
I talked to you last time about the Circle of Life: primary foods, secondary foods. Primary foods being Relationships, Regular Activity, Fulfilling Career and Economics, and Spiritual Practice. Once you are satisfied and balanced in those areas, you’ll be happier and more fulfilled. You’ll be satisfied with life!
Then you can go on to what you're putting in your mouth, which is secondary Foods.
On my walk, I met a neighbor who told me this story. He had an ulcer, and so his stomach had been hurting him. Some of his friends convinced him to go on a men’s retreat with his church.
He reluctantly went, even more reluctantly because they were serving pizza, which would not agree with his stomach. Near the end of the retreat, he was surprised because the leader said, “Let’s pray for Donald.” So everyone laid their hands on Donald and prayed for him.
Afterwards, there was no longer a burning in his stomach. He was completely cured during those few minutes that day.
Pedro was a 97 year old man from Cuba who was always at the Senior Center where my wife goes.
She really liked him and would often talk with him.
He was funny, upbeat, and filled with life, dancing even into his late 90’s.
He died. That day our grandfather clock stopped. The grandfather clock had been running continuously for over a year. A few days later, when I opened it to see what had happened, I saw the chime mechanism was incredibly stuck. I needed a force of about 5 pounds to unstick it. This had never happened before.
I’d like to talk about a subject that many patients are bothered by, and that is anxiety, either at work, with family, relationships, friends, whatever.
There’s a point on your ear, on the topmost of your ear, there’s a “v”. That is your anxiety point. If you take your left hand and put it on your ear point, that is where this point is.
To heal, you have to forgive.
If you’re bound with old thoughts about people who you haven’t let go because they have hurt you, you will have difficulty healing. Body parts, all functions well. Pain seems to hang on. And you ask the patient, “Have they forgiven everything?” And they will say, “Yes, except.” And they will recall the exact incident, sometimes many years ago, where they have been hurt.
So once they deal with the situation, then they can start to function again on a normal basis. But they must let this go.
Once I began talking to my higher self, there were so many great questions to ask.
I use 2 approaches.
The first is that I wait 5 seconds for a thought to appear.
The second is that I use muscle testing, also known as talking to the smart body. You can find hundreds of videos on youtube describing how to do this – there are many ways. The easiest is the sway test: stand, ask a yes/no question, and see if you sway forward for yes, or backward for no.
Here are a few of the many questions I ask my higher self.
It may seem a tricky or even daunting thing to calculate, what percent of my thoughts are positive, but for me, it is really quite simple.
The easiest way, is that I ask myself the question, and expect and wait for an answer,
The answer comes as a thought that appears, rather than figured out – I don’t make the thought, but rather it appears. And it happens very quickly, within 5 seconds.
I mentioned this once to someone, and he said that he’d never think of talking to his own mind.
