A couple of days ago, I was in the forest that surrounds our home, collecting kindling for a fire. I was dressed only in shorts and a T-shirt, enjoying the warm sunshine, when it occurred to me how truly special was the moment! This was rare! Shorts and a T-shirt so deep into autumn in our part of the world! Then the thought came to me that the key to eliminating fear and stress [which is the key to good health] is spending time in nature, completely free of thought! It was illuminating indeed! The universal-energetic-intelligence will communicate with us and guide us on this road less travelled! Being in nature, without thought, opens us to this potential! It was a phenomenal moment and I felt awesome!
Touchwood, but I feel very fortunate that I sleep well! Most nights I sleep straight through, 7 to 8 hours!
A couple of weeks ago I decided to change the focus of the blogs I was posting. I did this for two reasons. First, I have already covered everything I know about recovering from Parkinson’s. It is all included in my protocol! Second, I decided that my posts would be more beneficial if they were more inspirational in nature and content. Help others to experience happiness, even if only for a moment!
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!
Let me begin by saying, even though I’m writing a post about anxiety, I thankfully, do not experience a lot of it. The situations that cause me to experience anxiety include speaking in front of a crowd, packing for a trip or being late for something. These situations are infrequent.
Since being interviewed by Robert Rodgers last week I have spoken to several people who are really struggling at the moment. And even though we’ve all been diagnosed with the same condition, our challenges are quite varied. Severe trembling, anxiety, panic, headaches, paralysis and immobility, disorientation and the like.
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!
Thanks to a recent conversation with a friend, I had an epiphany about my experience with this neurological condition. I realized that I have been spending far too much time thinking about the symptoms I experience; wanting not to experience them.
For many people experiencing the neurological condition known as Parkinson’s disease, anxiety is one of the more common and challenging symptoms.
Anxiety is a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome. It is an expression of fear, created by a thought. Given the challenges of the symptoms and given what the future holds for those who consider their condition to be incurable, it is no doubt that anxiety is so common.
