Hello dear souls.

this is a deep, deep thread to read and take in.

this is my first post in these forums in several years, as i had been bedridden and unable to focus on my permaculture research and participation.

i will keep this brief and share what has been the most helpful tool for assisting me in this new chapter of healing of my lifelong chronic illnesses, depression, hopelessness, and all.

i have spent more than fifty years, hundreds of thousands of dollars, dozens of doctors, and  used other healing modalities dealing with my health and healing.  and what i am about to share has helped me more in one month than all that put together

i am not selling anything, i am just very grateful about this and want to offer hope to you.

it is called faster EFT, Eutaptics. and it quickly changes our neural connections so that our bodies can heal. it is simple and easy. and PROFOUND.


online, there are more than 1,000 videos to watch--free sessions and training where Robert Smith, the developer of fasterEFT/Eutaptics is helping others.

PLEASE check it out.

if it is okay with the moderators, i will say to do a youtube search for faster eft then add "grief", "depression", "Lyme", "addiction", pain, rape, POTS, trauma, PTSD, thyroid, cancer, weight, claustrophobia, dementia, studying, whatever may be your various illness or condition.

there are videos with folks sharing their experiences with fasterEFT/ Eutaptics and how may of them were ready to end their lives and this is what turned their life around. there are videos which show the process of how to tap.

the online sessions are great because you can tap along on yourself

tapping along with the three sessions on childhood trauma, pain, and soda addiction is where i felt the first noticeable shifts in my own pain and conditions.

many bright blessings to all of you, and please for goodness sake, check it out.

you have nothing to lose and much to gain from this trying it \

how many of us have tried everything else? and perhaps considered that death would be better than the endless, unrelenting pain and illness?

if you have questions, simply contact the folks via their website/s. they are super helpful and compassionate. as they have all come from illnesses and emotional trauma, etc. as we all have had challenging lives.  and our unconscious has been 'driving the bus' driving our lives.

hi ya'll,

While listening to a Rosemary Gladstar pod cast, she mentioned that these times seem stressful, because they are our time to be a live. That doesn't mean somethings aren't truly stressful. If a bear was chasing us, then stress and hormones would help our bodies run. Then the stress would be over. Financial, work and other society stresses don't necessary go away as quickly as a bear would.

When daughter gets anger or stresses, I ask what she needs and remind her that she has choices. She can run around the house, go to tree fort, yell outside, draw a picture. She is in charge of her emotions, she chooses how she reacts to anger/stress. We are fortunate, we chose to move the country when she was 6. Isolation is our struggle. Everyone has struggles, my heart goes out to you.

Sometimes we are the cat and sometimes we are the bag.

One negative way stress effects one's body is by putting on weight. Stress causes release of cortisol which encourages fat production and storage.

Now before everyone makes the Olympic jump to 'bad foods eaten' leap, pause and ponder how one's body is really trying to protect itself by doing this. I have come to my conclusions based on knowing  there's a Diet Industry totaling over $60 BILLION each year. And the greater fool bottom line is that dieting does NOT work (long term. 95% of dieters end up heavier after the REgain. AND all the stress over foods and eating only ADDS to the stress and fat production.

ANYthing that helps one to de-stress is a step in the right direction. (for those concerned about eating body honoring check out Intuitive  Eating by Tribole & Resch  2 registered dieticians who have been un-dieting people for decades)

As someone who's been dealing with epilepsy since the age of 13, if I don't manage stress properly the result is seizures.

I've a long and twisted history of a mismanagement of stress and am still struggling with effectively dealing with it...though I continue making improvements with regard to living a more healthy, positive, and beneficial life.

This thread popping up is rather timely.

I've had one hell of a week?  Month?
It seems to sneak up on you.
Or at least it's inconvenient so you keep putting it back in the box until it's out of control.

I have found previously that self care goes a long way.

Which I say as I lay in bed unshaven, unshowered, surrounded by unfolded washing and hungry on a sunny day because I called in sick.
