Hey there.

Back on April 3, I told you about one class (Getting That Metaphysical Book Out) that I’m developing with my friend Morgan Daimler for the fall Changing Times Changing Worlds convention

Now I’d like to talk to you about another class I’m working on for the same convention

Now, none of us is getting any younger and for many of us, that comes with more aches and pains. Pain management is a big deal, whether it’s from an acute injury or a chronic condition.

Now, I love mainstream medicine and feel that it has a lot to offer in the area of pain management, but it also has limitations and setbacks, such as side effects, addiction and your body acclimatizing to medication so it doesn’t work as well any more

For this reason, I’m pulling together a class on alternative health pain management techniques. What’s out there? What works? How does it work?

Since this is not a “one size fits all” universe (thank heavens), this class will offer introductory information about what might be helpful in the world of alternative medicine, so that people can make more informed choices and find the practices, mainstream medicine, alternative medicine or both that work best for their unique and special needs.

To make this class the best that I can, I’m inviting you to give me input – comment here or send me an email at we_are_foresight@yahoo.com to let me know what kinds of things would you be interested in seeing in a class like this.

And thank you in advance for your feedback

One of the most immediate issues you’ll have once you’re out of a bad relationship is stress.

Sounds crazy, no? After all, being in the bad relationship was the stressful part and now that you’re out, you should be able to relax, right?

Yes and no.

Being in a bad relationship is stressful, yes, but many times, your survival instincts will kick in while you’re in such a relationship. This is the reaction that lets people swim for miles through shark infested waters after a ship goes down or lift a car off of a loved one.

And survival instincts are not just for literal life or death situations. When you’re in a situation where you feel threatened, whether its physical harm,  or emotional, your adrenalin starts to pump, giving you the energy to fight or to run away, and if you’re in an ongoing stressful situation, you continue in a state of ongoing elevated adrenalin until te situation is resolved or until you finally run out of energy and collapse

and often, if you’ve been in this “fight or flight” level long enough, those elevated levels may continue, even after the threat is gone.

The “fight or flight” syndrome was originally supposed to be a short term solution to help you survive a challenging world- but when it becomes the long term default, it can deplete your immune system, harm your health, affect your ability to make decisions, limit your happiness and in general make it harder for you to have a good life.

And it feels lousy. Let’s not forget about that.

So we don’t want to stay in that state. But, when stress has become a habit, it may not change spontaneously. You may have to teach yourself how to relax and let go of stress.

There’s a lot of good ways to do this.

  • Exercise
  • Positive thinking
  • Meditation
  • Simplification
  • Relaxation exercises

And I’m going to get into some of these in more detail in coming posts.

The basic thing to remember right now is to pay attention to what your body is telling you, and when it starts to feel stressed, that’s time you need to slow down or stop and do something that helps you to feel calmer or happier

More details ahead

*Note- Being in or ending a bad or abusive relationship can leave you with physical, mental, emotional and spiritual damage which you need to deal with. Since this is not a “one size fits all universe”, everybody will have different things they need to heal and recover.

If you need medical treatment, or counselling, or medication, I’d encourage you to get what you need, just as I’d encourage you to try alternative health approaches or self esteem builders. Remember to find what works for you, and then make sure that you do what you need to heal on an ongoing basis.

Take care of yourself- you deserve it.*

Hey there.

For a lot of us, it’s the last dash until the holidays with too many good things to be done and not enough time to do them all.

It’s too easy to “shop til you drop”; but in the holiday season, it’s also important to remember to take care of ourselves as well

So, while you’re baking or wrapping or checking things off your life, here’s a little gift for you- a gift of five and a half peaceful minutes. Put down the spoon or the tape or the check list and take a moment to watch and breath and relax

and then do what you need to do to deck them halls and jingle them bells :)

Happy holidays to you from Foresight.

It’s been getting colder hereabouts, and when it gets colder, my knees, which have seen a lot of living, start to ache more and even hurt. Given that my life is lived in motion most parts of the year and especially in the holiday season, painful knees and the associated limp are not what I want to be dealing with, especially when I’ve got people to see, places to go and things to do.

So, anyway, I was limping along on my daily rounds the other day and the pain and the crankiness in my knees got worse and worse until I finally had to stop, sit down and take a break.

And as I was sitting there, waiting for things to get more manageable so I could move on again, I started thinking.

I thought”Hey, I know that affirmations have helped in the past to ease pain for me. Haven’t done that for awhile.”

I thought “Hey, I know  acupressure to relive knee pain and make them stronger. Haven’t done that for awhile.”

I thought “I know Reiki too and that can do wonderful things to help my body heal. Haven’t done that for awhile.”

Well, duh.

I had the tools I needed to support my body and feel better. I knew what I needed to do to take care of myself, and I was so busy that I didn’t do it.

That ever happen to you?

So, I did my affirmations and I did my acupressure and I added in my Reiki, and, when I stood up again, 95% of the pain was gone and I was walking much better.

and there’s the two clues

It’s not enough to know how to do something- if you want to benefit from that knowledge, you have to use it,

and…

in this season of giving to and caring about others, its important to to take care of yourself as well.

So what do you know that you need to do to take care of yourself?
