There exists many perspectives on "disease" as well as in regards to bodily pains and other physical conditions. All perspectives might possibly be represented on a spectrum ranging from the exclusively physical through layers of the non-physical dimensions of our being such as emotional, mental, etheric, spiritual, etc. If you are open to considering the perspectives beyond just the physical - read on!
"When you experience a physical or psychic malaise, do not try to get rid of it by immediately resorting to medication. First, consider that in giving you this pain, nature is pressing you to do work on the spiritual plane. Try to forget this discomfort for a moment, and meditate, pray, connect yourself to the light. I am not saying that you can cure all your pains by means of thought. But instead of always choosing the easy way to rid yourself of the smallest aches and pains through external means such as tablets, pills and so on, first call upon a spiritual element. Try working with light, love, harmony and purity."

"Energetically, kidney problems can be associated with being ‘pissed off’."
I believe there is "new medicine" correlations like this as well!
November 16, 2018 - More Regarding The Kidneys -
You’re probably familiar with the western concept of “body, mind, and spirit”. The TCM equivalent of this trio is called “The 3 Treasures”. The 3 Treasures are the esoteric substances that nurture the organ systems and keep the mind, body, and spirit in balance.
Qi, one of the 3 Treasures, is the life force that supplies the body with energy. The second treasure is “Shen”, which is loosely means “spirit”. The third treasure is “Jing”.
What is Jing in TCM?
Jing has no exact English translation, although many people attempt to define it as “essence.” In a way, “essence” is an accurate description. Jing is indeed what makes you, well … you, even before you’re born. Which is why some people equate it to DNA. Like the double strand helix genetic blueprints that determines everything from your hair and eye color, it determines your physical and energetic attributes before you’re born. You inherit this treasure from your parents.
Ancient TCM philosophy theorizes that everybody has a set amount of Jing at birth. A healthy newborn has a lifetime of it accrued in an energy savings account. Your essence enters your body and like a network of tree roots, it anchors all the energy you’ll expend in your lifetime.
So why should you care about Jing if there’s nothing you can do about the essence you’ve inherited? Why should you care about it if you’re born with a predetermined amount of it?
Over the course of your life, if you live a life of moderation, you’ll likely keep a good chunk of it stored in your energy savings account. But if you take out too many withdrawals, your ‘financial essence future’ might not be so bright.
Top 5 things that drain your Jing
Here are a few ways that your essence can leak from the body:
Excessive sexual ejaculation
Lack of sleep and staying up late
Drugs and alcohol abuse
Signs that your Jing is leaking excessively
Here are some tell-tale signs that your Jing is draining precipitously:
Accelerated aging (looking older than your real age)
Looking and feeling tired all day
Habitual trouble focusing
Loss of hair
Loss of purpose
If you waste your essence, in theory, your health can suffer because your immunity will be lowered, and will be more vulnerable to the so-called external pathogenic “6 Evils” such as Wind and Cold (or Wind-Cold). Healthy people who maintain their essence, generally speaking, are able to fight off more effectively colds, flus, and allergies.
How can you increase your Jing?
So it is disheartening to think that your life essence is consumed virtually every day. Isn’t it? The good news is there are ways you can preserve or even replenish your Jing. You can prevent your inherited Jing bank account from being drained by eating nutritious foods. Some foods that are especially beneficial for supporting Jing include eggs (both poultry and roe, aka fish eggs); organ meats; bone broth; bee pollen; kidney beans; sea vegetables; royal jelly; black rice; and seeds.
Some Chinese herbs, according to TCM theory can actually replenish Jing. You’re probably familiar with at least a couple of these Jing-regenerating herbs such as goji berry and mulberry. There’s also the legendary anti-aging herb, he shou wu as well as shan yao. Our formula, Hairvive, features he shou wu, which may help you maintain a youthful appearance.
Here are some other ways to preserve or replenish your Jing:
Refrain from frequent self-gratification and sexual intercouse
Practice Qi-building therapeutic modalities such as Tai Chi, Qigong
Jing’s relationship to blood and kidneys
Unfortunately, many people don’t live moderate lifestyles. Too much junk food, not enough exercise, too much stress … this is the normal Jing-leaking lifestyle for far too many people. When your Jing essence leaks, your blood production could become deficient. That’s because, in TCM theory, Jing, which is stored in the Kidneys, travels to the bone, whereby it’s transformed into marrow, which in turn produces Blood.
But let’s get back to chronic stress and examine the link between Jing leakage and western functional medicine. Over the last few years, more attention has been given to adrenal support, or more specifically adrenal fatigue (which is not an official medical diagnosis).
The theory of adrenal fatigue is chronic stress floods the body with cortisol, the stress-regulating hormone. Normal hormonal metabolic pathways become disrupted and diverted under chronic stress in an effort to keep up with the demand to produce cortisol.
And from where is cortisol secreted? The adrenal glands, which rest on top of the kidneys. Remember, the Kidneys are the storage house of Jing. It’s interesting that in both TCM and modern functional diagnostic medicine, stress can wreak havoc on the kidneys.
(This is why it’s important to learn how to manage stress and take all-natural herbal formulas that encourage stress management.)
Sea of the Marrow
Not only is Jing leakage bad for the Kidneys, it can also be bad for the brain. In TCM theory, the brain houses the “Sea of the Marrow”. If you’re leaking too much essence, the Kidneys can become weak, and therefore, the brain may suffer from malnourishment. A malnourished brain can manifest in poor concentration and memory, or feeling confused and foggy-brained.
Another crossover between TCM and western medicine relates to Jing’s role in forming “clear blood,” which in western medicine, translates as “plasma.” Jing produces clear blood in the Liver. In western medicine, the liver plays the major role in producing proteins that secrete into the blood, including major plasma proteins.
For women, menstrual blood can cause major withdrawals of Jing essence. (At ActiveHerb.com, we have all-natural TCM herbs to support menstrual health.)
Jing, Qi and Shen working harmoniously
Jing is the densest, physical matter within the body. Similarly to DNA, it determines our constitution. In fact, according to TCM theory, it nourishes, fuels, and cools the body. When our lifestyles are moderate and we’re eating well, getting enough sleep and managing stress, we support our Qi.
When we contain Jing and don’t let it leak, we possess abundant Qi. Moreover, we feel energetic and vivacious. And when both Jing and Qi are vital, according to TCM logic, our spirit (shen) will also be high.
November 10, 2018 - The Book of Living Nature -
"If you leave a bit of food around in a room, right away certain insects will appear. If it is a little honey or jam, you will have wasps and flies. If it is cheese, you will have mice. How do these various insects and animals sense from afar that there is something there for them? And to make them disappear, all you have to do is to clean. These well-known details of everyday life help you to better understand certain phenomena of the psychic life. When people entertain certain thoughts, or certain desires or feelings that are neither luminous nor pure, right away entities which like these impurities arrive and make their home in them in order to feed off such impurities. In what state will such people who attract dark entities feel? But if they purify themselves, if they begin to live reasonably, the entities move out, light spirits take their place, and peace and joy will prevail. Very few people know how to read the book of living nature. You will say that these are only small details; yes, but their applications in the psychic life are boundless."
The "... Onion" has seen a half dozen additional "insects" over the years that probably correspond to "certain thoughts, or certain desires or feelings".

"Understanding how the brain parcels out specific decision-making tasks can offer insight into conditions in which such networks go awry, such as in the case of psychiatric disorders. Depressed people, for example, clearly have difficulty with value-based decision making: because nothing feels good or seems appealing, all options appear equally bleak and making choices becomes impossible. Hoarding disorder, in contrast, may involve overvaluation of certain possessions and impairment of the cognitive control needed to shift one’s attention away from them. That explains why hoarding becomes more important than other life goals like maintaining relationships."
Dr. Mark Hyman presented an interesting series titled "Broken Brain" that focused on a number of conditions including depression but not the "Hoarding disorder" which I would have been interested in seeing as one of our former "fellow gardeners"(FG) had that condition. Other FGs included the conditions of Bipolar Brain Disorder, PTSD, Depression, plus couple others that I'll have to research to get names for.
September 22, 2018 - Exit From The Matrix: Illusions of the ordinary mind - by Jon Rappoport -
"The ordinary mind is built on its own 'national security' program. It protects itself from intrusions it considers disruptive. (Know anyone who heavily guards themselves from "intrusions"?)
And the biggest of those disruptions are ideas that contain 'risk.' What kind of risk? Ideas that take you into a new waking state you’ve never been in before.
The ordinary mind is a shield against this.
Eventually, the person gets so bored with his ordinary mind that he can’t imagine it doing anything except carrying out assignments and functions—and for that, artificial intelligence (AI) would be much better…so why not give up to AI? Give up, give in. ..."

In a private message to a "fellow gardener" -
While I opened and read your message (he) appeared just a couple feet away from me. So I seized the moment (with your message on the screen before me) as an opportunity to tell him about the door and that it would be very much appreciated to have the door shut. He apparently wasn't able to hear it very well. At first he didn't acknowledge me or what I said at all. He went right into talking about getting appreciation where-ever he went on his trip. While he was talking I suddenly interrupted him asking: "what about what I just said?" He then roughly said "I hear you". I then immediately made note of that (thinking I'd quote that to you later). Then he started to say that he felt I was the cause of his cancer! I quickly responded saying I don't believe that! He replied saying "You don't have to believe it I'm saying I feel ...". I then said "I repudiate that" and I was prepared to express that in even stronger language had he not backed off when I then said: I don't want to continue this conversation with you any more now. He then said he had more to express but was cutting off his emotions cause he realized I don't want to hear about it now ...
No one the cause of his cancer no matter what he feels or says he feels. I don't need any more conversation with him about that.
It would be best for me (and for other/s concerned) not to volunteer any communications that are intended to reach him under this condition as of now.
Writing the above to "a fellow gardener" was most positively without having this blog in mind. Finding my way intuitively to post this here at first simply seemed like the right place for it. Then while rereading this on this page "the door" suddenly stood out boldly in my awareness as directly symbolic and symptomatic of a certain psychopathy!
Just received the October Forecast from Michele Finey:
"Scorpio’s main focus is on what lies hidden.
The Underworld is a key area for this most mysterious sign.
Indeed, anything that is unknown or that requires investigation is where Scorpio’s interests lie.
Those with planets here are keen to get to the core of any issue,
so Scorpios have a fascination with psychology
A fixed water sign, Scorpio is often compared to an iceberg,
not just because ice is water (in) its solid state,
but because the largest part of an iceberg lies beneath the water (surface),
hidden from view. We really don’t know what’s down there ..."
"He" (in the opening paragraph for today's entry) has his Sun in Scorpio, plus Mercury and Chiron!
You Can Never Change Your Life Through Willpower. Here’s What Actually Works.
The opposite of addiction is connection.
When you think of the word, “Willpower,” do you think of “individual” or “together”?
Willpower is all about the individual. -
Willpower is trying to go it alone. Willpower is an attempt to win a silent battle. It’s the opposite of vulnerability. It’s the opposite of connection.
You’re As Sick As Your Secrets -
Addiction expert and founder of Genius Recovery, Joe Polish, often says, “A person is as sick as their secrets.”
In the book, THE BODY KEEPS THE SCORE, Bessel van der Kolk M.D. explains that traumatic experiences halt or “freeze” a person’s development. When a person experiences trauma, they usually keep their pain to themselves. Very rarely do they open up and share what they’re going through.
As a result, their pain gets suppressed. Hence, Dr. Gabor Maté explained in a recent interview with Tim Ferriss, “Trauma isn’t what happens to you, it’s what happens inside you.”
Trauma isn’t necessarily caused by tough experiences. It’s caused by keeping those experiences and the pain or confusion of those experiences to yourself. It’s caused by fighting silent battles. It’s caused by trying to go at it alone.
Addiction therapist and researcher, Arnold M. Washton, Ph.D. said, “Many people think that what the addict needs is willpower, but nothing could be further from the truth.”
Willpower is focused on the self. You can’t overcome an addiction on your own. As Johann Hari explains in his famous TED TALK, the only way out of addiction is through connecting with other people.
Addiction is all about context. So is all behavior.
Most people fail to make positive change in their life because they are trying to do it all themselves. Their silent battles and attempts at willpower only suppress their pain further down.
We All Have Multiple Personalities -
According to neuroscientist, Candace Pert, PhD, in her book, YOUR BODY IS YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND, we all have multiple personalities. Bessel van der Kolk M.D. agrees, explaining that certain sides of us are very well-developed, whereas other sides are radically under-developed.
Something may trigger you and all-of-a-sudden the scared 3-year-old version of you shows up. You don’t know how to cope, and you do anything you can to avoid the pain and confusion you’re experiencing. Addiction, then, is a solution to a problem. It’s a solution, albeit an unhealthy and temporary solution, to pain.
When a person gets stuck in their pain and individuality, Bessel van der Kolk M.D. calls it having a “frozen personality.” Which brings up another huge myth and misconception in Western Culture: the idea that we have a fixed and static personality — one we’re born with and one we die with.
We place a lot of emphasis on personality. We believe it’s the “real us.” It’s not.
Your personality is an adaptation to your environment. It’s also an adaptation to the suppressed emotions you have.
When you learn to connect with other people, and learn to get the help you need to heal your suppressed pain, your personality will change. You’ll no longer rely on your crutches. You’ll experience much deeper sides of life.
Beyond that, when you learn to connect with others, you open yourself up to growth and opportunity that could never be available to you with the “lone ranger” mentality.
Connection is the key to growth.
Connection is the key to overcoming addiction.
Connection is required for going much further than you could ever go on your own.
According to Harvard Psychologist, Robert Kegan, there is a 3-step model of “conscious evolution.”
Socializing-self = a person who is highly DEPENDENT. Everything they do is out of fear and anxiety. They do whatever they think other people want them to do.
Authoring-self = a person who is INDEPENDENT. They have their own goals, beliefs, and agendas. They engage in relationships so long as those relationships get them where they want to go. They get much, much further than people stuck in dependence. This level of conscious evolution is most prized in Western Culture, because we’re very individualistic. We’re not as focused on collaboration and connection. Instead, we’re obsessed with what individuals and “super-heroes” can do on their own. Additionally, as a society, we’ve become very addicted, and we’ve lost much of our ability and confidence to truly connect and be vulnerable. Which is why people like Dr. Brené Brown’s work is so important on vulnerability, connection, and courage.
Transforming-self = the highest stage of conscious evolution, which is far more reflective in Eastern Cultures, is where a person becomes INTERDEPENDENT. They no longer try to fight silent battles. They don’t attempt willpower to change their life. They recognize the importance of context and connection. They have their own goals, and views. But they can also see beyond their own mental frame and compare it with other mental frameworks, allowing them to continually weed-out unhealthy and limiting beliefs. Additionally, at this stage, a person has embraced vulnerability and collaboration — connection — so they are constantly doing work with other people where the whole becomes fundamentally different and better than the sum of it’s parts. According to Kegan, only this stage of conscious evolution is conducive to faith, because the actor trusts and expects that the best outcomes will come about, all the while not being obsessed or tied to a certain outcome.
You don’t just have one personality. You have multiple. And the more holistic you can live your life, and seek connection over willpower, the more you’ll be able to overcome past traumas, and the more you’ll be able to create a much bigger future.
According to Strategic Coach founder, Dan Sullivan, when two people come together who are living in their “unique ability,” they can go 100X bigger in their goals.
As Stephen Covey explains in 7 Habits of Highly Effective People:
“Synergy is what happens when one plus one equals ten or a hundred or even a thousand! It’s the profound result when two or more respectful human beings determine to go beyond their preconceived ideas to meet a great challenge.”
Are you fighting silent battles?
Are you still trying to change their willpower?
Or, are you open to context and connection?
The above mentions of consequences from the misuse of will is underscored by The Human Design System especially regarding individuals with an Undefined Will Center. The individual mentioned previously with his Sun, Mercury and Chiron in Scorpio also has an Undefined Will center. I'm intending to review what Human Design says on this and may possibly quote some of that here especially as it pertains to the deteriorating health of an individual.
One can not "escape" the universal law of sowing and reaping. One way or another we all reap what we sow. You cannot truly hold another accountable for what you sow. Other people do not cause you to have "cancer" (or any "disease". "Cancer" is your own body's special biological survival program that is launched to "buy you time" so you can find the resolution to your own inner conflict. No one creates the conflict within you.
Every thought is a potential seed. We sow seeds every day! Not all seeds are "good seeds". With any "garden" there comes a time when weeding is required and especially if you want to reap a fruitful harvest from your garden! "The garden" is a metaphor for the great within. Your thoughts are firstly and for-mostly within you. It is your own thoughts that sow seeds into the emotional field within you. When upset emotions or "ill" feelings arise look at your thoughts behind them and be willing to do some weeding before claiming another individual is the cause of your ill feelings.
