How to access your innate health

Dr. Judith Sedgeman explores with Kimberley Porter in this 55 minute video clip the three principles of Mind, Consciousness, and Thought at the “Innate Health” Conference in London, December 2011.

Not only are they explaining the principles behind our lived experience, they are also answering frequently asked questions regarding the impact of experiences and circumstances on our thoughts and feelings.

Readers who are interested in finding out more about how the three principle understanding can be useful in everyday life are encouraged to contact me on 09-486.3770. You can also find more clips from the conference on the Tikun Website

So Simple – So Powerful

I have lately written a number of posts that reflected my understanding of the 3 Principles. I posted this trailer here for those who might be interested in getting an idea what the 3 Principles is all about. Have a look at the impressive applications in private lives of people, schools, communities, prisons, and mental health settings.

My understanding is still at a beginner’s level – yet as it deepens more and more, things make sense to me now that have been puzzling me as long as I can remember. For example:

How come I can look at clients and see the beautiful, good, and caring persons while they can see only ugliness, broken-ness, and fault when they look in the mirror? (more…)

How To Get Over Childhood Stress: The Process Of Healing

I have explained in the previous article “How to Get Over
Childhood Stress: The Process of Getting Hurt"
how childhood experiences became
part of the child’s neurological physiology that over time, through re-enforcement
and repetition becomes an aspect of its personality structure.

The task of recovery is to stop the process of repetition
and re-enforcement of the unwanted beliefs, thoughts, and behaviours and to
encourage new, positive ways of being in this world. Thus new neuro-pathways
need to be created (if you remember that has to happen through experience!!) or
if they exist but are just faint connections they have to be strengthened
through more and regular traffic. At the same time it has to be avoided to go
down the familiar path of neuro-connections that are negative and unhelpful so
that they wither away. On paper that sounds very easy, doesn't it?

Grounding Meditation

Here is another relaxation / meditation exercise. This one is more focused on grounding yourself. Grounding is one of the concepts used in therapy quite a bit. In the widest sense it means 'getting both of your feet firmly on the ground'.

Do you feel shaky, spacey, or confused? A grounding exercise might be just what you need. Because all meditations/visualisations emphasise deep breathing, you will get the relaxing benefit of breathing regularly and deeply. This in itself brings you more fully into your body.

I found the meditation on YouTube

ENJOY! and let me know how you find it.

The Truth about Drugs and Mental Health

Today I am talking about fixing depression quickly through medication, the years old fairy tale of  the “Chemical imbalance” in the brain that causes depression and a whole array of other mental illnesses. Whereas in past decades people have blamed mothers for peoples’ mental health problems, nowadays theories favour the defective brain as the cause for issues people struggle with.

It is amazing that theories of biological causes manage to remain in the forefront of the discussion between doctor/health professional and patient – given that there is no evidence to prove these theories right. A large number of researchers have already in the late 90s pointed out that the biological-chemical-imbalance-theory is a creative construction kept alive by the pharmaceutical industry.
