The Light Inside Us. Mastery Newsletter November 29, 2017

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

We are taught that light emanates from the sun, bounces off external objects and into our eyes. And that is how we see.

 

The blind World War II French resistance fighter Jacques Lusseyran discovered otherwise.

 

He found we have the light inside us.

 

Lusseyran went blind in a freak accident at the age of 8.

 

The Germans occupied France in 1940 when Lusseyran was only 16. The following year, he created a resistance group. It grew to over 600 members.

 

Lusseyran was charged with interviewing prospective members to weed out any potential spies. His heightened senses seemed to give him extra powers of perception.

 

Eventually the group merged with a well connected and official resistance group, Defence de la France.

 

Their underground newspaper had a circulation of over 100,000 during the occupation.

 

Lusseyran and his friends would carry their shoes in their hands. They quietly slipped the two-page paper under doors in apartment buildings in Paris.

 

The Defence de la France newspaper became France Soir after the war. A daily newspaper with a circulation of 1.5 million in the 1950s.

 

Eventually Lusseyran and many of his friends were arrested by the Gestapo. He was mercilessly tortured. 7am to 7pm for days on end. He never gave up any names.

 

He was sent to a concentration camp, Buchenwald.

 

The treatment of the prisoners became progressively worse as the Germans started to lose the war. Food was scarce and sometimes non-existent. Prisoners were weak and dispirited.

 

Lusseyran found an internal wellspring of strength during this time. He helped others. Often he would translate between French and German. He was a brilliant student and had taught himself German by listening to radio broadcasts.

 

In his autobiography, Lusseyran talks of his body getting blocked up and losing control. First, lungs, then intestines, ears, all his muscles and eventually his heart.

 

He was watching his body in the act of leaving this world. Not wanting to.

 

He describes the bodily pain as “twisting and turning in every direction, like snakes that have been cut in pieces.”

 

In the middle of this torture, Lusseyran said something took hold of him…life! He wrote he had never lived so fully before.

 

“Life had become a substance within me…It came toward me like a shimmering wave, like the caress of light. I could see it beyond my eyes and my forehead and above my head. It touched me and filled me to overflowing. I let myself float on it…I drew my strength from the spring. I kept on drinking and drinking still more.”

 

Slowly he came back from the dead. A friend, who Lusseyran thought to be an atheist told him that he didn’t have a chance in the world. Lusseyran burst out laughing. The friend didn’t understand the laugh, but he never forgot it.

 

He left the hospital on his own two feet. He was filled with happiness. Happiness in a Nazi concentration camp!

 

 

What lessons are there for us in Lusseyran’s experiences?

 

He tells us:

 

“To forget was the law…(all) must be forgotten…to hold on to the strength to live…Memories are too tender, too close to fear. They consume energy. We had to live in the present; each moment had to be absorbed for all that was in it, to satisfy the hunger for life…

 

Latch on to the passing minute. Shut off the workings of memory and hope. The amazing thing is that no anguish held out against this treatment for very long…Suffering may persist, but already it is relieved by half. Throw yourself into each moment as if it were the only one that really existed. Work and work hard.”

 

After the war, he married, had children and taught French literature in America.

 

Tragically, he and his wife died in a car accident on holiday in France. He was only 46.

 

Lusseyran showed his gratitude to his country by writing his autobiography AND THERE WAS LIGHT. He expressed two truths that his experiences had taught him.

 

The first truth is that joy does not come from outside but from within.

 

The second truth is that light does not come to us from without. Light is in us, even if we have no eyes.

Smiling is Your Super Power. Mastery Newsletter November 22, 2017

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

 

There is a super power lurking in your belly.

 

It is the “Inner Smile.”

 

You can access this super power just by smiling.

 

When you don’t feel like it…REALLY don’t feel like it…that is when you need this super power the most.

 

In those times, you can put a pencil between your teeth. That creates a smile.

 

Here is why:

 

A smile makes you feel good. A smile triggers the “feel good” hormones such as endorphins, dopamine, serotonin. These have been called “The Angels’ Cocktail. Think of smiling like a natural anti-depressant.

 

A smile relieves stress. The Angels Cocktail crowds out the stress hormones. It is a little known fact that cortisol and adrenaline cannot co-exist with the Feel Good Hormones.

 

Smiling Boosts Your Immune System. Researchers think immune function improves because you are more relaxed when smiling.

 

 

Smiling Lowers Your Blood Pressure. Probably for the same reason as for boosting the immune system. You are more relaxed.

 

Smiling Helps You Stay Positive. Try this test: Smile. Now try to think of something negative without losing the smile. It’s hard, isn’t it? Even when you paste on a smile, it still sends the message to your body and brain: “Life is Good!”

 

Stay away from depression, stress, and worry. Activate your super power: Smile!

 

 

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Cursive Writing. Dinosaur or Essential Skill? Mastery Newsletter November 15, 2017

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Who needs to write anymore? We have laptops. Typing is faster. Smart phones, why we can speak into them to send a text message.

 

Is there any real need to teach students how to write longhand? (that’s what “cursive writing” is.)

 

There are certainly lots who don’t know how to do it and are not bothered learning it. They will say they can always use block printing.

 

Do we lose anything really by not knowing how to sign our names in cursive?

 

I contend that we lose a lot. We lose way more than is visible on the surface.

 

I invite you to look at a bigger picture.

 

For our youngsters to have a fulfilled life, what is necessary and what is fluff and not needed?

 

The school system seems to think that music is not necessary.

 

Physical education is thought of as secondary.

 

I would remind those folks that the word gymnasium really meant school originally.

 

Stick with me on a short circuitous route.

 

First, where is the human mind?

 

If your first answer to this is the brain, that is what many will agree on.

 

Not I.

 

Candace Pert co-discovered endorphins. In her book MOLECULES OF EMOTIONS, she reveals that the mind is in every cell of the body!

 

Allow me to repeat that. The mind is NOT located in the brain. It is in every cell of the body.

 

It may well be why the Attention Deficit diagnosis is so popular. Kids fidget. Teachers don’t like it. What they don’t realize is that to learn, we use our whole bodies. Not just the brain.

 

Bodily movement is an integral part of the learning process.

 

Therefore, it behooves us to expose our young learners to many modalities of movement.

 

I suggest that in order for children to grow into well-rounded, healthy, fulfilled adults we need to have them dip into all kinds of experiences that seem frivolous on the surface.

 

This would include but not be limited to:

 

Music of many genres from classical to modern. Even to have them play an instrument or many instruments.

 

Singing. Everyone can sing. But we drum that out of our kids. That to me is child abuse. Many of us were exposed to that abuse.

 

Dancing. Learning how to elegantly move the body is, I believe integral to a fulfilled life.

 

Art. We can all draw. But calling a child’s efforts a failure because it doesn’t fit with our ideas about beauty is a shame…at best. Abuse at worst.

 

Handwriting and even calligraphy. Something different happens in the body when we write as contrasted with typing (or speaking). In our rush-rush world, many of us have taken to writing quickly and losing our writing skill. “Mindful writing” may be the solution.

 

Literature. Even for computer nerds.

 

Public speaking. Listed by many as the #1 fear. Yet competent communication is critical to advancing in any career.

 

Leadership skills. That should be obvious.

 

Conflict resolution. How to argue. Many think arguing is about what today’s politicians do. That is not arguing. That is hurling abuse. How to argue using reasoned statements is a skill set. Essential, says I.

 

Outdoor survival skills. It builds confidence to know that no matter what nature throws at you, you know what do to.

 

Self-esteem. Not by being politically correct and protecting kids from any and all things that may upset them. But building a strong inner knowing.

 

Martial arts. So they know how to defend themselves and have a strong core that is aware of their surroundings. Self-esteem comes from knowing you can handle yourself and knowing how to stay out of situations.

 

We can probably think of many other topics to study.

 

Emotional Intelligence. How to manage money. Time management. Meditation (“Mindfulness” is actually making inroads now, thank goodness.)

 

Tell me what other areas of study you feel are essential.

 

Tell me if you disagree with me too.

 

 

 

The modern education system was designed to produce workers who can fit into industrialized society. Be the cog in the machine.

 

You did not need to know any of the above to land a job in a pulp mill for example.

 

But the new emerging world needs new skill sets, plural. And we cannot know what connections are made in the mind amongst the many areas of study. Connections that can help us be more creative. Connections that we would not make if we had no grounding in varied fields of study.

 

Cancer Letter #3: Dr. John Sarno – Mastery Newsletter Special November 10, 2017

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

What if cancer is a symptom and not so much a disease?

 

What if cancer is a symptom created by the unconscious mind as a distraction to aid in the repression of strong unconscious emotional issues?

 

That is the reasoning of Dr. John Sarno.

 

Writing in Forbes magazine, Edward Siedle reveals that his back pain went away never to come back.

 

Not from surgery, but from understanding the root cause.

 

Dr. Sarno said that we all have emotional pain and even rage in our unconscious mind.

 

The conscious mind creates pain and other conditions such as cancer to distract us from having to deal with the rage and pain in the unconscious.

 

Siedle’s article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/edwardsiedle/2012/09/26/americans-best-doctor-and-his-miracle-cures-dr-john-e-sarno/#7618df055466

 

 

Note some of the famous personalities who have used his methods in this Wikipedia entry:

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_E._Sarno

 

 

Psychology Today magazine reveals there is a documentary on Dr. Sarno in the works: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-mind-body-connection/201412/all-the-rage-film-about-dr-sarno-emotions-and-health

Vision Versus Intuition – Mastery Newsletter November 5, 2017

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

A strong vision of where you want to be can pull you along.

 

Create that vision. Do only what will keep you on the path toward it.

 

Eliminate those actions which will not, which are a distraction.

 

Forces beyond out understanding can come into play if we stay focused on the vision.

 

 

Is there an exception?

 

Is there another way? Is there a more powerful way to invoke the power of the universe to our benefit?

 

What about…there is a divine plan for my life. A plan I only have a partial view of?

 

What if my intuition is the keyhole I can look through to see that plan?

 

What if I just pay attention to “what wants to happen next?”

 

Here is an example. My friend and Laughter Yoga buddy Soren Russow lead a Laughter Yoga session. An attendee loved it so much, she kick started negotiations with the organizers of an upcoming conference. (The Hearts and Hands Conference in Vancouver and Victoria, BC, Canada)

 

Those discussions lead Soren and I to brand ourselves as “The Laughter Dudes.” www.LaughterDudes.com

 

We made a proposal as the organizers requested. It was accepted. We held two extended Laughter Yoga sessions in both cities.

 

Scores of participants loved it and told us so. www.laughterdudes.com/portfolio/

 

The whole thing seems to have taken on a life of its own.

 

Note that Soren and I did not have a “vision” for making this happen.

 

It manifested seemingly on its own.

 

We were just doing what was presented to us…what was in front of our noses. Not really knowing how it would all unfold. We saw one step on the staircase. When we stepped on it, the next step appeared.

 

We were just following intuition at each step.

 

Lesson? Perhaps we can get too fixated on a “VISION” in capital letters. Too fixated on how we want the outcome to be.

 

Perhaps the outcome is meant to be far greater than our vision.

 

Perhaps paying attention to intuition can lead us to something greater than our conscious mind can conceive.

 

What are your thoughts on this?

 

 

 

 

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Laughter Yoga, a Minor Medical Miracle. Matti’s Victoria Newsletter November 1, 2017

Neat Stuff For My Greater Victoria Friends, Fiends And Fellow Roustabouts.

 

“Incurable” Dry Eyes Relieved in One Laughter Yoga Session.

“A lady attended my 2 day leader training (diagnosed with Sjogrens Syndrome – dry eyes, dry mouth). It has no cure.  After just one laughter session she had tears flowing down her face for the first time in years and the next day she was salivating.

–Merv Neal, Master Trainer in Laughter Yoga, Australia.

 

Soren Russow CLYL here in Victoria reports back pain relief. He had a back injury. He was not able to bend forward more than slightly…about 10 degrees. After 20 minutes of laughter, much of the pain was gone. He was able to bend most of the way forward without pain.

Who knows, maybe other pains and conditions might be helped too. Certainly we know now that a sustained laughter session can help with motivation. Dopamine is called the motivation hormone. And dopamine is produced in the body with SUSTAINED laughter. We need about 10-15 minutes.

When will we see YOU at Laughter Yoga? Next session Wednesday, November 1st…hey, that’s today…St. Patrick Street in Oak Bay. Email me for address.

Dopamine The Neurotransmitter for Fun and Profit. Mastery Newsletter November 1, 2017

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

How to Get Motivated  and Feel Fulfilled

 

Here’s how. Flood your body with dopamine. It is the hormone that motivates.

 

How to do it? Meditation. Regular meditators report a sense of calm and being centred.

 

Laughter Yoga has been shown to produce the same state as meditation. 10-15 minutes of SUSTAINED laughter does it.

 

Here you find my 10+ minute video to laugh with me daily.

 

Cold showers. Shown to increase dopamine levels by up to 250%.

 

Cold showers aficionados (like me) swear by it.

 

There are foods to eat and foods to stay away from.

 

Lifestyle factors come into play as well. No surprise that exercise increases dopamine production.

 

Adequate dopamine assures you will feel more alive, focused, productive and motivated.

 

Watch this delightful video for more ideas…like which one fruit is the best for increasing dopamine levels.
