In his book, A New Earth, Eckhart Tolle discusses the importance of enlightened doing, which means, living in spiritual consciousness rather than ego. It could also be stated as, being aware of our thoughts and material motivations, rather than lost in them. He also says, when we are more focused on the goal, rather than what we are doing in the present moment, we create stress for ourselves, and stress is what we need to eliminate in order to recover our health.
I recently decided to reread, A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle. It is my favourite book, and it has helped me immensely in understanding the root of, and coping with, this neurological condition I am experiencing.
I am excited to announce the rerelease of my first book, The History Teacher! I first published it in 2010 and decided to give it a makeover after the release of my second book, The History Teacher 2.0, which I published through a new self-assisted publisher, FriesenPress. Quite frankly, I wanted to clean it up a bit. It was my first effort, and grammatically, it needed some work. So it’s the same story, but a much smoother read! If you would like to check out the storyline, go to the Fred’s Books page.
Thank you so much for your support and for taking the time to read my books! Please know that I appreciate it enormously!
I am presently writing the third instalment of The History Teacher trilogy and hope to have it published by the end of this year. After that, I plan to begin writing, The Kid!
I recently watched a Super Soul Conversation Oprah Winfrey conducted with Gary Zukov, author of Seat of the Soul. During their delightful chat, I was reminded of how important it is for me to acknowledge and be grateful for the wonderful gifts of this Parkinson’s experience!
The last four months has been a remarkable journey of ebbs and flows, fearful moments and spiritual insights, culminating in a renewed focus on acceptance, surrender, gratitude, forgiveness and love!
In my last post, I wrote about how much I enjoy shoveling snow. I really like exercising in the fresh air! As much as I enjoy it though, it has really been messing me up, leaving me experiencing more intense symptoms! The same is true for playing golf, writing and other activities I undertake.
Conflict arises when one party tries to impose its will on another party and the second party resists, or worse still, counters by trying to impose its will on the first party.
We are presently having such an experience on the road we live on!
I am presently in the midst of an intense healing period. I’m grateful to say that a few blog readers are doing the same protocol and we are sharing our experience. I’m so happy not to be doing this alone. The healing we’re doing is based on a protocol developed by Janice Walton-Hadlock of pdrecovery.org. Walton-Hadlock believes that Parkinson’s disease is not the result of being in a chronic fight-or-flight state of fear, but rather, it is from being in a chronic “pause” state of fear or from being in a chronic “disassociative” state of fear.
A few weeks ago I started waking up in the middle of the night feeling a bit panicky. It was due to some tightness in my throat [causing me to want to swallow repeatedly] and my tongue sticking to the top of my mouth. It was making think I might suffocate. I knew it was nothing serious [I wasn’t going to suffocate], but still, it was really starting to play on my mind… freak me out! I think it was triggered by the medical marijuana I was taking, because I was also feeling a lot of emotional upheaval during the day. I was getting to the point where I was scared to go to bed. I was doing everything I could to make the feeling go away, but it wasn’t working!
