When your palms face each other, it means you have the expertise in the subject matter. If you sit down and grasped your hands in front, it means you are feeling nervous or are hesitant to speak on the topic. Palms Position The palm position talks a lot about your personality. The palm-up gesture exhibits a submissive and non-threatening personality. For instance, a beggar sits on the roadside pleading people to help with his palm facing upwards to demonstrate he will not harm anybody. When you handover something with palm-up gesture the receiver feels comfortable to talk to you. The palms-down approach implies authority. Adolf Hitler is a major proponent of this gesture. If you handover something with this gesture, it will develop antagonistic feelings in the mind of the receiver. The significance of each of these disorders will hold a meaning different for Ethiopians than for Bostonians. Where acute disorder, starvation, and epidemic infectious disease are rampant, it is unlikely that the symptoms of chronic conditions will hold as powerful a place in the local collective consciousness as they do in societies that have passed through the epidemiological transition to chronic disorder as the chief source of morbidity and mortality. Baldness and impotence among middle-aged men, acne and short stature among adolescent males, obesity and eating preoccupation (bulimia and anorexia) among adolescent and young adult women, and cosmetic concerns among the elderly are culturally marked conditions that express the narcissistic preoccupation of modern Western society. Agoraphobia (fear of leaving the house) has been said to express through its symptom of houseboundedness the Western woman's ambivalence about the choice between having a working career and being a housewife (Littlewood and Lipsedge 1987). At present, the dementia of Alzheimer's disease captures popular attention in North America as an unacceptable index of the final assault of aging on the autonomy of the person. Relabeling alcoholism as an illness and child abuse as a symptom of family pathology are further examples of the widespread process of medicalization in Western societies, whereby problems previously labeled and managed as moral, religious, or criminal are redefined as disorder and dealt with through therapeutic technology. These problems open a window on Western society, showing its chief cultural concerns and conflicts. To recapitulate our main argument, cultural meanings mark the sick person, stamping him or her with significance often unwanted and neither easily warded off nor coped with. The mark may be either stigma or social death. Whichever, the meaning is inescapable, although it may be ambiguous and although its consequences can be significantly modified by the affected person's place in the local cultural system.

It is by communicating with the consciousness of the body that each of those people can discover (and heal) the cause of their pain. We are individuals, with an individual history, and that is the real key to healing. We need to know our reasons for being imbalanced, in pain, or out of sorts. By learning to communicate with our body consciousness directly, we can surpass the mechanistic definitions given to us by outer culture of why we may be in pain and discover and, more importantly, heal on an individual basis. There is nothing more powerful than the experience of understanding what our body wants and needs to feel whole. I invite you to discover the body deva, the consciousness of your physical body. To start, we will begin discovering the body deva through imagery work. As you progress, you will want to work with the body deva in the more advanced ways shared later in the article. Beginning Body Deva Exercise Consider that there is a consciousness in your body that you can speak to. THE BRAIN AND DISSOCIATION If dissociation is initially helpful when dealing with trauma yet very unhelpful once the danger has passed, why do people continue the process? The answer lies in part with a small primitive area of the brain called the amygdala, which is thought to assess and respond to potential threats before conscious awareness even occurs. One way of thinking about trauma is to imagine it being processed through the thalamus on its journey to the prefrontal cortex, where the traumatized individual is able to make sense of the experience. On its journey to the frontal cortex, the information is filed in the appropriate file folder (or context) to be brought out later, if necessary. If the information is not adequately processed, however, the cortex begins to operate like a sentry, working hard to guard the limbic system and to keep the traumatic material at bay. Unfortunately, the cortex does not work well when someone is asleep, overly tired, drinking, or especially when experiencing any form of PTSD. Trauma researcher Bessel van der Kolk and colleagues hypothesize that PTSD occurs in part when the amygdala overfunctions and the hippocampus underfunctions. The limbic system of the brain (made up in part by the amygdala, hippocampus, thalamus, and hypothalamus) is primitive and reactive in the way it interprets incoming information. Because language is not a part of the limbic system's repertoire, that information is interpreted as images and sensations.

Most people are surprised to learn that there are many different types of loss. Loss is loss, they say, and that is true on one level; In the remainder of the article, we'll focus on complicated loss, loss in limbo, and disenfranchised grief. It's important to remember that grief is a reaction to those losses. While we don't want to dwell in the intricacies of the types, understanding what kind of loss you're experiencing can sometimes help you find your best self in the situation. Complicated Loss To put it simply, complicated loss is any loss that is complicated by other factors. Most of us know that we will experience loss when a relationship naturally ends. When two people mutually agree on separation and divorce, that is an uncomplicated loss. When the death of an elderly relative happens in an expected way after a good, long life, that is an uncomplicated loss. In this context, radiation constitutes a significant disturbance, preventing the optimal exchange of information. This, in turn, causes control disruptions, energetic blockages, and finally illness. Black tourmaline helps to reestablish energy flow and the healthy exchange of information, and it can even help to prevent large disruptions to energy flow. The color black is, in itself, indicative of the setting of boundaries. Its other characteristics also make it suitable for combating the effects of electromagnetic stress. Tourmaline alleviates stress, is helpful in cases of muscle tension and pain, and encourages sleep. Tourmaline quartz consists of fine, needle-shaped inclusions of tourmaline embedded in clear quartz. In principle, it works in the same way as black tourmaline. Tourmaline quartz dissolves stress, tension, and resistance. It has an enlivening and activating effect--more so even than black tourmaline--and thus helps to find a balance between tension and relaxation.

And thus began a period of about three years of strange and confusing experiences that I wouldn't understand until later in life to be child molestation. When Innocence Dies I lived a pretty sheltered life until the abuse started. I grew up in a small town on old farmland. Before I was abused, the evilest thing I remember being exposed to was the time someone broke into our home while we weren't there. There was also one time when I stole a fake wedding ring from a bag of wedding cake decorations from my grandmother's bakery. I had a crush on a girl at school and thought she'd think I bought her jewelry. I don't remember how old I was, but I had obviously not hit puberty because my only desire was for her to like me back. My imagination gave birth to no other desire. I suppose it also could have been that my imagination had yet to be hijacked and sexualized, even as a kid. In short, options are often excuses, nothing more. As you learn to shut off the voice that rationalizes doing something other than what you've set out to do, you make discipline automatic. This automation doesn't make you robotic, it makes you effective. It turns you from a dreamer or a dabbler to a doer. It turns your intentions into actions and accomplishments. Removing the voices and opinions in your own mind that constantly want you to do what's easiest rather than what's best enables you to live, and live well. You create this lack of thought when it comes to acting by setting fewer, better tasks, and acting upon them habitually. You do not become less creative, rather, you're more creative because you're giving time to creativity. When it comes to action, creativity is no longer needed, it's time to act and that doesn't require analysis. As I made a morning run routine, as I did it 10 days in a row, then 20, then 30, it became less of a grand quest and more of a habit.

Perhaps you say that you need time to think about the situation before responding. Perhaps you excuse yourself from the situation. Whatever choice you make for responding differently in the moment is wonderful. You have entered the change process for creating something new. Allow yourself to feel thankful for the progress you have made, one choice at a time. Understand yourself. After the moment of reacting and trying something different, find some quiet time with yourself for an inward look. What situations tend to bring forth reactions of pain, anxiety, worry, fear, or anger? As you become aware of these types of situations and the feelings you typically have, you will more easily be able to try different responses when they come up again. And, after understanding yourself better, ask yourself how it felt to try something different. Leg gestures: what do they mean The way a person stands or sits talks a lot about his or her personality. The leg movements are a reflection of the actual mental state of an individual. Since, the legs are quite far from the brain, a person is not aware about the leg movements; Actually, leg movements are an accurate reflection of a person's mental state rather than the person's facial expressions. It is because facial expressions can be easily manipulated by an individual due to his or her mental awareness but the same is not applicable to the leg gestures. If you are a shy person, you will twist your legs around each other or the legs of a chair to hide your negative emotions. Even when that person stands while talking to another person, he or she will cross one leg before the other, trying to hide the rear foot. A seating posture with crossed legs expresses a defensive attitude; The latter reflects a competitive or argumentative personality.
