Each article was written to address issues of concern for both laypeople and professionals who are interested in or affected by the phenomena of dissociation. It offers a glimpse into the history of dissociation and how it is viewed today. These articles are written for both the layperson and the professional in the hope that they will help clients with DID become active participants in the treatment process. This article talks about ways the disorder itself might be contributing to this problem, but it also talks about why adjunct therapies might be needed. Adjunct therapies addressed include art therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, dialectical behavior theory, hypnosis, and bodywork. The use of medication in conjunction with therapy is addressed in article 7; In article 10 the focus is on the friend, family member, therapist, or other supportive person in the life of someone with DID. This article talks about boundaries, communication issues, and self-care. The epilogue includes parting thoughts and is followed by appendices that offer valuable information about inpatient treatment options, articles and other resources, and Internet sites. The information provided will be helpful for anyone wanting to learn more about DID. She went on to say that any anger we feel over 15 minutes is old anger. Of course anger is only one of the emotions that arise. When a relationship ends, when divorce happens, and even when a death occurs, we are left with so many feelings. Feeling them is the first step toward healing. Allowing Old Wounds to Come Up for Healing Your loss will also be a window into your old wounds, and like it or not, they are going to come forth. Some of them you may not be aware of. When you're going through a breakup, for example, you may think, I knew he wasn't going to stay. In a divorce, you may believe that I don't deserve love, or when a loved one dies that, Bad things always happen to me. These are negative thoughts that stretch beyond the current loss.

The need for human intervention is likely to become increasingly superfluous. The Dangers of 5G: Health Consequences As 5G is yet to become widespread and is still not available at anything like its full potential, we can at the moment only speculate about the specific repercussions of its broadcasting technology. However, one thing is fairly certain: radiation levels will rise exponentially in both private and public spaces. Neither wifi nor second to fourth generation cell phone providers, from GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) to LTE, are likely to disappear over the short term as 5G will not be able to replace all the other standards. This will lead to 5G antennae being added to all the existing transmitter sites. To exploit 5G's full potential for the complete integration of every aspect of our lives into a network, at least one transmitter will be required every 330 feet. As a result, radio radiation will be more ubiquitous than ever before. There is as yet no clarity at all about how indoor spaces are to be supplied with connectivity, however. The higher frequencies used by 5G are far less able to penetrate solid objects (such as walls, buildings. The reality for most of us is that life, and the art of living it, is an ongoing journey of the wonder switch being turned on and off. We're born with it on. Then a bully on the playground or in your home turns it off. A teacher or coach who affirms the magic inside you turns it back on. Then someone whose own wonder has been crushed, crushes ours. Wonder switch off. Years go by, and the gaps between the switch being on or off grow bigger. Then the gaps become like expansive canyons until the wonder of our youth feels like a distant, vague memory. Finally, the switch is worn and rusty, the way most things get when they haven't been used in years. And so we learn to live without it.

Achieving your goals isn't dependent on luck or talent. Their achievement depends on who you are, and who you are is how you live everyday. To do the right things on the grandest scale is discipline, without which you will not live a purposeful, happy, meaningful life. Who am I to talk about discipline, let alone teach it? To be honest, this is a section of the article that my editor demanded I include, but something I've struggled writing. I am not so arrogant as to assume I'm an authority on discipline, which is a marketing rule you shouldn't admit - who wants to hear from someone who isn't an authority? I'm not sure there are authorities on such topics, there are merely people who've grown to understand it, adopt it, include it into their lives, and those who study it and so forth. I am not a teacher in the modern sense. I'm not someone who doesn't have skin in the game as Nassim Taleb puts it. My success or failure in life depends on discipline. But this article will show you that you can purposefully create what you desire even while dealing with unwanted circumstances and challenges. You will learn how to apply the truth that your intentional focus causes energy to leave your body and activate connections to bring you what you set your intentions on. You have the power to create what you want in your life and to navigate difficult times in a way that brings you more of the core desires of your heart--perhaps love, purpose, financial abundance, or adventure. Caring for my dying brother gave me an awareness of being able to have the core desires of my heart while at the same time experiencing something that I definitely did not want. While taking care of my brother I was aware of the immense love we had for each other. Indeed, I would not have felt the pain of losing him had I not first felt love for him. During that caretaking time I was also aware that my ability to love and be loving was growing. In the end, as I now go through my days without my brother's physical presence, I feel hugely grateful for my increased capacity to love that came about through the painful process of taking care of him while he was dying. That increased capacity to love has made me more able to form truly meaningful, fun, caring relationships in my life today, which indeed has given me the desires of my heart. While we cannot avoid all pain or difficulties in life, we can reshape them.

There are other universal gestures that will be explained later, in article 2. American Hand Gestures - Cultural differences People belonging to different cultures may interpret gestures in different ways. Hence, it is important to learn what each gesture means. Observe the pictures below and understand what each hand gesture signifies across different cultures. Thumbs Up: US citizens use this gesture to imply agreement or approval. Hitchhikers use it to appreciate a job well done. However, people in the Middle East will feel offended if you use this gesture as it means nothing is going on well. Avoid using this gesture in Greece, Sardinia, Russia or West Africa. In Mediterranean countries it means `your wife is unfaithful' Periods of alleviation also reveal attendant diminution in anxiety and depression. There are rising feelings of mastery, often due to acceptance of a paradigm of care that substitutes a pragmatic notion of illness maintenance and disability reduction for the myth of cure. Of course, swings from amplification to damping, and vice versa, need not reflect psychosocial influence: often biological change is responsible. As a result, there is uncertainty over the reason for exacerbation or remission, which, regretably, encourages a corresponding tendency to dismiss even the obvious social-psychological push of the swing. The upshot is conjoint (practitioner/patient, family) denial that chronic disorder is so influenced--a fateful complicity that in my experience correlates with pessimism and passivity. Not surprisingly, the effect is to worsen outcome. The Meanings of Illness Illness has meaning, as the cases I have mentioned suggest, in several distinctive senses. Each type of meaning is worth examining. From an anthropological perspective and also a clinical one, illness is polysemic or multivocal;

We can fully understand who we are, why we are, and become more conscious about why our bodies and our lives are out of balance. This may result in great physical change, a lessening of symptoms, and more joy and laughter in your world. I do hope that it does, as the weight of the world and the heaviness of what we carry is often such an incredible burden. We are often unaware of just how much of a burden we carry until it begins to lift. We are often unaware of how many limiting beliefs we hold, and the impact of those beliefs on our lives, until we realize that we no longer need to have them shape our world. The Clarion Call The sort of clarion call to take responsibility for our own healing has been sounding for decades, and as meditation and inner work grow in popularity we are more and more accepting of the fact that we must take part in our own healing process to truly get well. This is not to say that we should not visit healers, medical professionals, and others on our path, as those skilled professionals can be of great help (and can get us out of some very stuck places). They can compassionately assist us and listen at the deepest levels, moving us forward in profound ways. Someone who has attended to his or her own healing path in an in-depth way can be a profound catalyst to our own process. Caution: As you begin to read this article, remember that even educational material can bring up many feelings. Also, the personal stories about trauma and dissociation included in these articles may encompass material that is triggering for some people. If you are easily triggered, do not read personal accounts when you are alone. If, for any reason, you begin to experience emotion that feels overwhelming, it is probably an internal signal that you need to put the article away until a later time. Please respect the pace at which you can process this information. As you begin reading, I hope you do so in the spirit of personal growth for you and you alone.
