Addiction Recovery

The Basis for All Addiction We have become so accustomed to living in a state of stress that often we are unaware of it until we experience pain, disease or addiction. Often addiction can arise from the pain of stress and the deep desire to simply relax, in addition to the desire to not feel pain, and yet to feel happy and at peace. The key word here is feel. Many adults are locked into a closed state of being in their minds and not feeling. Drugs and alcohol can give a sense of opening and feeling, and yet ultimately cause a cycle of further closure, pain and disease. We all share the following:
  • Unconscious programs of resistance to avoid pain and feelings of fear, anger and grief, which actually create it.
  • The desire to experience the state of fundamental physical, mental and emotional balance, or homeostasis, which is the foundation of health and well being, and from which all feelings of joy, love and peace that we all desire arise.
Those who are considered addicts, not unlike the rest of us, have this cycle happening in the desire to repress pain and to experience well being, as a result of their unconscious response to unconscious programming. The cycle of the use of drugs, alcohol, food, sex, pornography, etc, and even negative thinking, is the result of the desire to repress pain, fear, anger and grief and to experience the state of homeostasis, health and well being and joy. The use of drugs, alcohol, food, sex, pornography etc., create greater and greater physical, mental, and emotional imbalances, and so the cycle continues until there are physical, mental and emotional breakdowns. These breakdowns create opportunities for change.

The Six Factors of Aging 1. Stress – The number one factor in accelerated aging and disease is stress. The experts are in agreement. Just about everyone in research agrees, see the statistics to the right. that 95% of diseases originate from stress. Over the past 15 years this perspective has become universally accepted. The United States federal government has come out publicly in agreement. Cortisol is released from the adrenal glands in response to stress or low blood glucose. A UCLA study links this stress response to aging and disease. Every cell contains a tiny clock called a telomere, which shortens each time the cell divides. Short telomeres are linked to a range of human diseases, including HIV, osteoporosis, heart disease and aging. The telomere is a kind of molecular cap, made of DNA, that protects the ends of the chromosome from damage. As a cell ages, the telomere keeps shortening until it reaches a finite length. At that point cells stop dividing. The study concluded that the telomere shortening was the result of stress and excess cortisol. 2. Excess Insulin – A Brown University study stated that insulin plays a central role in aging. Excess insulin which can lead to Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, elevated cholesterol and obesity. One does not have to be obese to experience elevated cholesterol. Stress and High carbohydrate, low fat diets are the prime causes of excess insulin. The average western diet of processed foods is packed full of these simple sugars and the rapid increase in diabetes and insulin resistance tells its own story. For this reason, to avoid this situation it is advisable to avoid eating refined carbohydrates and simple sugars as much as possible. 3. Free radicals – Free radicals are unstable oxygen molecules in the body that have lost an electron and searches to stabilize itself by robbing healthy cells of electrons. This thievery results is oxidation. Over time, oxidation causes breakdown of proper function and integrity of tissues and organs in the body. Oxidized cells eventually turn into tumors or some other form of disease. Any excess radical not quenched by anti-oxidants (ie Vitamins C and E which the body cannot produce), will ricochet off other circulatory and cellular components leading to oxidation, damaged cells and aging. 4. Acid PH Balance and Aging – The pH balance recognized by all medical physiology texts as one of the most important biochemical balances in all of human body chemistry. Maintaining a slightly alkaline pH balance is your body’s first line of defense against aging and disease. You must try to maintain a balance between the acid and alkaline in your body at all times to remain healthy. Your Body pH Affects EVERYTHING! Acid pH causes partial lipid breakdown and destructive oxidation cascades. This accelerates Free Radical damage of the cell walls and intracellular membranes structures, which then unravel, killing cells in the process. This is a crucial step toward premature aging, creating wrinkling, age spots, and the following list of degenerative diseases 5. Excess Blood Glucose – Consuming simple carbohydrates and sugar causes excess glucose. Stress causes your body to release cortisol and raises glucose levels. Excess Blood Glucose increases AGE formation, advanced glycosylated end products, which are cross linked products of carbohydrates and protein, a key component to aging and disease. Glucose adheres to the surface of arteries and capillaries and leads to artherosclerosis, blindness, impotence, diabetes, and kidney disease, free radicals and aging. 6. Dehydration - “Dehydration is a major factor in premature aging and is associated with Arthritis, Addiction, Premature Aging, Back Pain, Angina, Insomnia, Headaches, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol Levels, Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Colitis.” -Dr. F. Batmanghelidj Six Factors of Aging and Diet The six factors of aging are interrelated to diet and water intake, when combined with stress represent a powerful force to accelerate aging and disease. Eating too many calories causes excess free radicals. Eating too many calories as refined carbohydrates, sugar, causes an increase in insulin and blood glucose levels. Increased insulin forces the body to produce more cortisol. Consuming acidic foods and drinks causes an acid pH balance. Not drinking sufficient alkaline water contributes to the body to be dehydrated, toxic, acidic and oxidizing. Next article- how to reverse these aging factors and have beautiful, youthful skin.  

Awakening Sacred Union

Awakening Sacred Union

Most people go though life in a state of constriction and fear.  It is said that in every moment we have a choice of being in the constriction of fear or in the energetic flow of love.  Unfortunately the unconscious default program for the majority of us is that of constriction and fear, which results in constricted breath, tense bodies, minds and emotions and can lead to physical, mental and emotional disease.  This constriction and fear is also is reflected in our most intimate relationships. The capacity to be intimate with another begins with knowing, accepting and loving ourselves.  Hieros Gamos is the Sacred Marriage of a Human Being with Divinity (the Inner Spirit) and the Unification between all life expressions and its levels of opposite. This is the union of with our own divine nature, which is the prerequisite to the divine union with another. Learning to open our hearts to loving and being loved is the essential spiritual path. Evolving through conscious relationships is the most difficult, yet the most rewarding of all paths. It begins with our connection with our own hearts, and the capacity to love ourselves. It is then that we can love another, and allow ourselves to be loved.

  Hearts in Harmony is about restoring our natural balance and innate harmony with life- of aligning our heartbeats to the heartbeat of the world and to one another. Our society does not educate us in how to have health, well being, and loveand happiness. So, though we would all like to experience it-most of us do not.

The basis of health and well being lies in the state of homeostasis,  balance, and harmony of the physical, mental and emotional levels of being. Physical, emotional, and men...
