Why the world will never be the same.. and this May be a good thing #hangintherehumanity

The world has Been going crazy for past few decades and it seems to be happening more and more each day. Generally, I don’t let the news into my head and affect my emotions; I’ve been pretty good at building a wall of “don’t give a f$&@” around my spirit. That wall is starting to crumble slowly and this May be a good thing.

With so many violent events ( most seem racially motivated) happening so frequently, I find the people around me becoming more and more impacted, which Iin turn is impacting me because I care about them. This ultimately means that i now have to step forward and do/say something about it.

If you know anything about me, then you know I’m that “woo woo” guy who believes “I am the universe and energy is all there is”, so naturally I have to look at the world through this lenses of energy, so pay attention while I break it down, Buddha-style:

The expression of violence is the result of the build up of fear and anger. Not everyone’s expresses these pent-up emotions like this; some people freeze and become even more scared. At any rate, when you look at the emotions of anger and fear from the viewpoint of the Chinese five rhythms model cosmological makeup of the universe, you will discover that anger and fear are connected with the elements of wood and water, respectively. The designation of fire can also be applied to any passionate emotional reactions, as in crimes of PASSION.

Right now,  it seems as if  this world is engulfed in fire on the energetic level and humanity is responding ( mostly unconsciously) by losing control of their rationality and acting as scared people do.

Another interesting observation is that in the Chinese cosmological model, the rhythm of wood corresponds to anger and Growth.

Now what am I reaching for? Speculation time!!! I feel that the energies of fire, water and wood are flooding the earth and is causing feelings of hatred to bubble up to the surface, to be expressed through violence.

Because fire cleanses, all of the hatred and fear that has been festering in the souls of  humanity is being burned away, unfortunately it seems to be manifesting in seemingly random acts of violence.

So how can we protect one another during this time of transition? Here’s a few suggestions:

1. Pray/mediate on/for peace of spirit and understanding of our fellow man. We all have the capacity to project positive feelings to those around us, but very few use it. By focusing on a time when you felt extremely peaceful in your spirit and carrying that feeling with you as you go about your day, you will have a positive, uplifting effect and most everyone you encounter, even if you never utter a word.

Daily meditation before you leave you home is excellent to still your mind and emotions so that you radiate peace instead of fear. Meditation will help to center your Self within your Self.

2. Notice the feelings of anger and hatred in yourself, if there be any there. By noticing these feelings, you take the first steps to evaporate them before they manifest is less than desirable ways.

3. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. If you can avoid situations and contexts where there are likely to be violent outbursts I.e. Any place where crowds of people can gather, then avoid them. While we as individuals may have control over our emotions, when a person becomes lost in the crowd, they take on the mind of that group and tend to follow blindly. This is not being fearful; this is taking stock of a situation and taking the safe route.

4. Avoid watching the news. Believe me, you’re not missing anything important whatsoever. Whatever is happening in the world will happen regardless of whether or not you hear about on CNN or MSNBC. While you’re trying to get your daily dose, your mind and body are undergoing a subtle shift and your emotional state changes in the short span of time that it takes to stay abreast of current events.

There will be an end to all of these violent outbursts, because all things have and beginning and an ending, so all we can do is be part of the solution by staying in touch with our God-nature and shining that light to the people we meet.

Best,

Do you have traumatic experiences trapped in your muscles right now?

We’ve all been there:

You get into some sort of accident and your body tenses up powerfully, and then relaxes completely when the danger is gone…. Or does it?

According to practitioners of body work modalities like Feldendkrais, Applied Kinesiology, etc…

Your body still remembers the incident like it was 20 minutes ago. Not only do your muscles remember, but your nervous system remembers. Your body stores the memories in the form of posture deviations and various physical reactions to similar stimuli.

All traumatic experiences seem to have these three components working:

1) a internal representation of the incident ie a memory consisting of visual, auditory, kinesthetic, olfactory, and gustatory (smells and tastes, respectively). This is evident in simple stimulus -response experiences in daily life ie you smell a certain smell which triggers a certain memory, positive or negative.

2) a body posture response ie certain muscles becoming overtight in an effort to protect you from said experience.

3) briefly mentioned in point 1 was the stimulus-response effect ie this happens outside which cause this change internally ie emotions and thought processes/sequences.

Think about it: when you think back to some traumatic experience, don’tyou automatically shrink spiritually and get a bad feeling?

Wilhelm Reich coined the term “armoring” for any group of muslces that remained constantly-over tight and used many massage techniqes combined with cognitive restructuring to bring the muscles back to a normal resting length. Over stretched muscles are not-so-awesome, but we will discuss that more at a later date.

Furthermore, in chinese medicine, each organ and group of muscles and nerves, bones, etc is governed by Meridians. According to Chinese Medical Theory, each meridian governs a specific emotion ie lung meridian governs grief, central-meridian governs confidence, liver meridian governs anger etc.

When you grab your own copy of my new book, Master Keys to Health and Vitality, you’ll learn powerful techniques to help take control of your thoughts, emotions, and vitality.

As you can see, there are many different perspectives on and modalities with which to effect the release powerfully-toxic emotions from the body.

Next question: Now that i know that i’m holding on to some past traumatic experience with my body posture, how can I release that so I can move forward to experience a deep, fuller life as though it never happened?

There are many very effective and valid techniques for doing so.

Cognitive restructuring, as mentioned above is a powerful tool for body change when used properly.

Blowing the negative energy attached to the memory is another powerful way to help the body get back to vitality in everyday movement.

Timeline therapy and various other NLP processes are excellent to use in conjunction with Cognitive restructuring to cause the body to relax and let go.

Reiki is a good modality to use. It helps by focusing directly on the chakras, helping the individual to release said negative energy charge from these storage vortexes, which also happen to exist in the same place as various nerve plexi.

Aryuvedice medicine is another very powerful modality for trauma release.

Tibetan medicine is a good way to go.

A good acupressurist and/or acupuncturist with some psychological trauma training can be of great help as they can help you affect the meridian-emotion connection for change.

If you’re going to use any of these modalities, you want to find someone you can trust, someone who has a lot of “tools” they can use to help you get out of trouble should you be working with a memory that ellicits a powerful response.

Evoking those powerful feelings can be like stepping in a cage with a hungry lion, and not having the tools to get out of said cage can be devastating.

Readiness is another factor to consider, as we never really seem to be “ready yet”. However, with some crafty word play, you can create a state of readiness in yourself to seek help for change.

Can your remember a time when you felt powerfully brave and you said to yourself ,” screw it, lets get this done…”? Act as if you can tap into that state anytime you snap your fingers now…

Don’t let the trauma stay in your body and wreak havoc; create a readiness state in yourself backed with strength and courage and hope for a besutiful outcome; seek help and change your future for the better.

Best,

Amir Campbell
