“Behind our wounds”

What is a wound?
A wound is an emotional and  or a physical imbalance that is transmitted from generation to generation.
How do you know if you are carrying such wounds? There are often physical and emotional clues to their existence.. An example would be Hearing a young person say I am afraid of having a heart attack in my 40s, because my dad had one at 45 out of the blue and died.
Or My family has always not trusted those___kind of people because his brothers killed my grandfather.

“To interrupt the transmission of wounds from generation to generation
precisely because their persistence is so disruptive” to our
health “and because the problem of passing on intergenerational
trauma is so often overlooked.”
Do read James O’Dea’s book “Cultivating Peace” if you are serious about helping heal yourself and the planet.
Thank you James for laying out so clearly the steps to help our world heal from the inside out.

“High School Varsity Letters for more than just athletics”

Awarded a “Varsity Letter” in high school is a big deal. Now a forward thinking administrators od Snohomish High Schools in Snohomish County and the United Way are rewarding excellence. Letter men and women earn their Letters for many achievements.

Teens in the Everett district’s high schools have a chance to earn a letter for helping others. Athletes are encouraged to volunteer in the community. Promoting the idea that school isn’t simply about grades and and sports.

A great way to inspire teens to be involved in their community, improve their self worth and emotional health by helping others.

A Varsity Letter now is given for Community Service if student has completed at least 145 hours of volunteer work per year. Those hours can’t include time spent on class work or other graduation requirements.

Helping heal the planet one person at a time starts with helping others and yourself to be better.

“Harvard med. students demand change”

It’s about time!

From the beginning of a student doctor’s medical education is taught by professors with deep Harvard old ways die hardfinancial ties to the traditional pharmaceutical industry. One might say that these young doctors in training are brain washed into the belief that there is only one way to practice medicine.
As the Harvard Medical Student Organization discovered, the clinicians and researchers who lead preclinical medical education at US medical schools are usually drawn from affiliated medical centers and therefore are likely to have financial ties to industry.3  Out of Harvard’s 8,900 professors and lecturers, 1,600 admit that they or a family member have ties to drug companies that could bias their teaching or research.
• The pharmaceutical industry contributed more than $11.5 million to Harvard in 2008 for “research and continuing education classes.”

In the context of physician education, financial relationships to the subject matter have been shown to induce selective presentation of data and definitely created the medical mantra that the only good and safe medicine is the Big Pharm. one.
Drug companies were the greatest influence on doctors’ decisions of which drugs to prescribe. Further, about 70 percent of doctors regarded drug representatives as an efficient way to obtain new drug information! One professor’s disclosure list had 47 company affiliations!

Drug companies spend $4 billion each year on direct-to-consumer ads in the United States, but 400% more, a massive $16 billion, to influence your doctor. That is $10,000 per year per doctor   in the United States.

Two hundred Harvard Medical School students have challenged their school’s administration, demanding an end to pharmaceutical industry influence in the classroom. These organic changes will take years to unwind and reeducation of staff to open their eyes to safer natural ways to care for people.

Harvard received the lowest possible grade, an “F,” from the American Medical Student Association, a national group that rates how well medical schools monitor and control drug industry money.

The students were joined by Dr. Marcia Angell, a faculty member and former editor in chief of the New England Journal of Medicine, who has vigorously advocated for an end to liaisons between academia and Big Pharm.

Go Students!  Become educated and aware so more consumers can receive quality well informed integrated health care.

“Angry leave it for the dogs”

“If your dog doesn’t like someone you probably shouldn’t either.”
– Unknown

Has your behavior gone to the dogs?

Even if you are in an angry mood never bark at anyone. It is bad for your image and makes communication tougher.-MW

“The external expression of anger can be found in facial expressions, body language, physiological responses, and at times in public acts of aggression. Humans and animals for example make loud sounds, attempt to look physically larger, bare their teeth, and stare. The behaviors associated with anger are designed to warn aggressors to stop their threatening behavior. Rarely does a physical altercation occur without the prior expression of anger by at least one of the participants. While most of those who experience anger explain its arousal as a result of “what has happened to them,” psychologists point out that an angry person can be very well mistaken because anger causes a loss in self-monitoring capacity and objective observability.”

Speak from your heart so anger never overruns you.

This is the sunset at the North Pole with the moon at its closest point last week.
a scene you will probably never get to see in person,
so take a moment and enjoy God at work at the North Pole.
And, you also see the sun below the moon, an amazing photo and not one easily duplicated.

You may want to pass it on to others so they can enjoy it.
The Chinese have a saying that goes something like this:
‘When someone shares with you something of value,

you have an obligation to share it with others!’
I just did.. Your turn
