A Head Injury is Like A Brain Without a Body Which Would Be a Disaster ?
A head injury is a disaster like having a body without a brain! You never know if your brain will work properly or go on strikes for hours, days , month or years! Memory gets lost but who knows where to find your memory. Clear thinking may become a thing of the past. Making decisions with a head injury might even seem harder to pull that out of the confused brain that has been traumatized further by not reversing the old brain injury.
What does trauma do to the communication within the nerve system and the body?
A Head Injury tells the body there is a disaster with your brain that has happened to you! An Arm without a hand would be a catastrophe called a handicap. A body without legs would be a cripple lacking the ability to move around restricting our freedom of movement. Each of us recognizes these serious condition because they are so visual and functionally restricting.
Yet, how many of us recognize the lesser conditions where the brain has reduced communication within itself, a head injury effect? How many of you have reduced communication with the body because of current or hidden trauma. Do we recognize when the body has these difficulties communicating with the brain?
1. Symptoms: mal absorption – poor digestion,
2. Nervous conditions,
3. Circulatory problems like high blood pressure or low blood pressure,
4. Osteoporosis or arthritis,
5. Poor circulation which is lack of electrical charge in the red blood cells,
6. Elimination problems,
7. Glandular dysfunction,
8. Hormone imbalances and the list goes on and on.
What is happening to the body’s functions when there is trauma, a head injury, that limits proper communication thru your nerve system between the body and brain? We see stress and adrenal exhaustion turned into disease state: hypertension, digestion mal-absorption, increased cortisol levels, blood sugar levels sky high, hormone imbalances, circulatory deficiencies, muscle spasms, neurological conditions that destroys lives. This leaves certain tissue screaming for the proper nutrients but they don’t get it. Do You? We take our brain and its ability to control the body for granted. Sometimes we take it for Granite – hard headed! What attitudes, actions, beliefs act like concrete in our minds to clog up our abilities and our lives?
So what can be done to bring this communication back on line after a head injury? How do we get the free flow of information moving again and re-established? Live life with a full deck? Take a vacation ! Well that’s a good start toward relaxing some of the stress that affects our brain and body but that’s just a start. How can you learn to take and active role in your internal thoughts and emotional processes without having to spend 8 years in college becomes a psychologist or medical doctor?
The answer may be simpler than you think. Let’s look at a model of another country whose population is so vast that they don’t have the resources like we do in this country so they had to come up with an alternative health care. This is not disease care, but health care system that anyone could participate in and be effective in managing their own health. Now does that mean that they will never need additional help from trained professionals. No! Does it mean they take an active role in understanding and learning about what causes health to change? YES! Does this mean that these people practice lifestyles that support health and longevity? YES! Do they take an active interest in eating foods that will help them stay healthier? Yes. You guessed it. China is the country that teaches its people how to take care of themselves and other thru several key activities that we as Americans can also learn. One of the major gifts that China has given to the world is its knowledge of Acupuncture with or without needles. The other gift that the Chinese have given the world in the practice of many of the exercise programs that helps us mobilize the subtle energies of the body called QI (Chee). In The West QI is known by another name = IQ. I like to think of it as the opposite of what our psychologists created many years ago to measure the Intelligence Quotient of a child which really tells us how they manage their energy throughout their lives. This was called IQ. The Chinese look at the intelligence of the universe instead of localized to a given person and it is available to all of us . It is called QI or Quantum Intelligence. So some people view quantum intelligence as universal intelligence. The sum of all possibilities is available for those who can tap into this fabulous storehouse of knowledge. So how would we tap into this storehouse of knowledge? Just trying to access what I ate last week sometimes has become a chore to remember! Why do we have such a difficult time accessing your own memory banks or information stored within you? There are many factors. . .Yet there is a simplified way of looking at this process by using an example!
A head injury is a brain just like a computer with scrambled programs – Internal Chaos!!!
Lets take a newly built computer with nothing on the computer but the operating system which allows us to turn it on. The only thing we get to see is just the basics of getting the computer operating. Without the proper programs or way of deleting programs that are no longer useful to us, the computer would be just a small box that would take up space and have very little usefulness. The power in the computer is seen when we have quality stable software that allows us to do certain things, keep addresses, plan our day, calculate information, keep financial records, play games, talk to other people in different parts of the world. What happens when this same computer develops a virus, or a malfunction? What happens to performance? Its like having a body without a brain. The information you try to retrieve from the computer is unreliable just as a head injury makes your brain functions unreliable. You find errors in the information, or the computer just down right quits. It won’t work at all.
Let’s see how some of the information the computer creates is just like what is happening in your own brain with a head injury. The computer creates a system of connections to different devices in the computer like the monitor, printer, modem, other part of the computer circuitry, the programs, links to other programs that interacts with them, and manages billions of pieces of information that has to be processed for the computer to do its job. So all the connections in the computer are just like all the streets we observe in a city or town that are all connected going some where. Our brain does the same things but in a different way. The brain makes connection to all of the organs and cells in the body to the spinal column, the limbs, to 308 muscles, 208 bones, 60,000 miles of blood vessels, over ten trillion neurons in the brain itself, with all the hormone secreting glands and the list goes on and on. The internal workings of the nerve system have to be able to process a lot of information and tie events together clearly so we can remember in living color and vivid details about what happens in our lives. So we call this association of all the connections in the body, nerve system, glandular system organs, extremities, and the brain is a NEURONET. This literally means a network of neurons that all carry information about a particular topics that means something special to us. This also means that neuronet carries information about bodily processes and events that are positive or negative and have emotional connections to them. This neuronet thrives on repeated usage of that information to make it strong and lasting in our memories. So what happened to you when you were two years old and you fell is now connected via the neuronet by the association with the bicycle fall, at age 16, and the car accident at 23, and the movies you saw last night about another car accident on film. All of these layers of events get stored in the neuronet and continue to support actively the neuronet connections getting replayed in, our lives over and over. WYSIWYG is a computer term that tells us that what ever is store in the computer will be displayed on the screen. This is also like what ever is in the neuronet will be played out in our lives as a series of holographic images. So this presents a little challenge. What if I don’t like what I’m seeing or experiencing in my life? How do I change that massive pile of information stored in my brains neuronet? First of all you need to clear the trauma from a head injury.
Up until recently most people went to a psychologist or psychiatrist and spent years trying to unravel the layers of confusion stored in our memory backs. Most people had difficulty doing that successfully.
So along comes a course of study called Chaos Theory. Another course of study that is its opposite in a study of natural law and principles. Another course of study which is over 5000 years old is acupuncture. Another vitally important contributor to this synergism is the field of Quantum Physics. Wait a minute! I don’t understand all this technical stuff. How do you expect me to do something for myself if I have to deal with all this intellectual stuff? I can barely keep my life together let alone learn some exotic science concepts. Well hold on don’t be alarmed. What we will do is just extract some key ideas from these fields. Apply them in an easy way. And get some really interesting results. So if I get too technical you pull me back to reality with a big “WO! wait a minute!” We have a challenge that we have layer after layer of information stored in our brain, cross linked to other information in our brain that is creating chaos in our lives. So what we want to do is to apply chaos to the neuronet that is holding these conflicting data and information. Our objective is to clear that energy and establish a newer way of looking at things. So this new way of looking at things is called change the energy content of the neuronet. Break the old connections! Re-educate your neuronet with a new program that allows you to be focused on what you want. In a nutshell this is what we are about to do.
We need a couple of very powerful tools to allow us to accomplish this goal we just setup. So here are the tools:
- We need to understand that the acupuncture system is a series of channels or canals that are filled with energy that flow all over our body and brain. The acupuncture system connects with all the internal organs, muscles tissue, spine, and brain and more. Not to worry, you don’t have to be an acupuncturist to do this method. We just need some basics to get started
- We have two ways of affecting the acupuncture system. We can stimulate acupuncture points and increase the energy. Or we can over stimulate and put that energy to sleep by sedating the energy or by beating it down with over-stimulation. Stimulation means rubbing an acupuncture pit for 16 seconds, or tapping it for 16 seconds. When we want to sedate a point we have to over stimulate the point and we do that for 30 second to 10 minutes.
- The acupuncture system is very orderly because it runs by a twenty four hour clock called the circadian rhythm clock. Each two hours a particular meridian get repair energy to rebuild and heal that processes in that meridian and associated organ. So there are times when we would want to go with the flow of that energy and create more change by stimulating or sedating different points in the acupuncture meridians. To begin with you will be using the points that I designate are for stimulating or for sedating. Coupled with this rubbing acupoints will be the next part of the technique and that is a saying or phrase that is goes like this:
- Even though I have a challenge with _________________ (list the event you are challenged with). Are challenged by, then add to it a positive outcome for this challenge. So you might say I deeply and profoundly accept myself. Understand that you are creating two opposing energies in sound that will neutralize the challenge you are working with. The positive statement will prevail and since you are using positive emotional energy, your positive emotional energy being more powerful than negative emotions, will create a positive outcome.
- Your brain loves to produce results! Try this idea on several different goals or project you may have. It works when you work the process.
