Who we are and what we spend our life achieving is determined by what has gone “wrong” or driven us from the “mean”.  All of us are specialized by this diversion.  The degree of variance equals the level of trauma and the direction of the variance is specific, directly toward or directly away from the nature of the trauma.  It is the acceptance of our traumatic experiences and their influence that lead us to a sense of well being.

Natural compensations

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

A human being’s psyche exists in a layered form. It is much like the layers of an onion. Each layer adapting to the layer before it. Compensating in this way to return to its natural form, rounded with smooth surfaces. One could say that each layer compensates for the perceived imperfection of the previous layer. This natural process causes each of us to exist in a state of internal conflict. The position we take depends on which layer our present state of being represents. This also explains why we choose our present avocation to compensate for our perceived weakness or imperfection. We are constantly adjusting and readjusting our being to achieve our pre trauma self. Thence we become experts at what we perceive as our least adequate self.

Psychotherapy/Health regimen

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

Psychotherapy is a process involving the search for the underlying cause of unconscious motivation. It is somewhat similar to a surgical medical procedure in that it goes directly for the underlying problem is designed to neutralize the effects of trauma. Regressive forms of psychotherapy are indicated when the strategic decisions that one comes to in one’s life cannot be implemented intentionally. This blockage indicates inconsistencies in one’s life that interfere with internal harmony. The source may be unaccepted archetypic impuses or it may be due to a traumatic disruption in our early years.

There is a law of physics that applies here. “One cannot change the past” I propose that one can only change how they perceive and feel about the past. I believe this law implies that the only way to change our memories is to relive them in the present and come to a new conclusion. I propose that the decompensations and “flashbacks” in our lives are not “sickness” but attempts to heal by bringing the past alive in the present.

Many of the esoteric arts an medicine are misused when they are aimed at suppressing the pain instead of working through it.

Remember there is no thing called pain. Pain is a message from the body to the brain. The only communication the body uses are pain/pleasure, comfort vs discomfort, and desire.
