The obtainment of a personal cohesiveness is the successful integration of your pseudo-self and Ideal Self. As you shift positions, the pain may move around to different areas over time. In the beginning, this pain is predominantly from tight muscles and is associated with tender knots in the muscles called trigger points (where the belly of the shortened muscle bunches up). These feel like tender marbles when someone gives you a massage. As the condition progresses, some people develop numbness or tingling in their hands or feet (paresthesia and carpal tunnel syndrome), and sometimes burning/shooting pains (nerve pain or neuropathy). Sometimes the skin is even sensitive to touch (called allodynia). All of these pains can be effectively treated and are discussed in articles 9, 10, and 11. Increased thirst. Because of hormonal problems, people with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia often have decreased ability to hold on to salt and water, which increases urine output and thirst. A classic description of CFS/FMS is that you drink like a fish and pee like a racehorse. Drinking a lot of water and increasing salt intake becomes important and will help you feel better. There is just nowhere to go in the conversation. She simply doesn't care how she affects us in the family, much less how she is impacting her future. What does the Bible teach about the daily responsibilities of life? For each one should carry their own load (Galatians 6:5). God expects us to spend time and energy carrying our loads of responsibility for family, finances, and other challenges. That's how a successful life works. So what happens when someone in your life takes little ownership of their own load, leaving you to make up the difference? You feel angry, which makes sense. You feel that everything is not right, because it truly isn't right.
Today as I filled up my car at a service station, down an adjacent street a teenager drove insanely fast for one block. You can hear trees and other plants guiding you in your mind. You instinctively know what a tree or certain plant needs. You have a special tree where you go to sit down whenever you are free and you experience total peace of mind. In fact, scientific research has actually shown that plants under the care of such people tend to thrive. Precognitive Empath When you are a precognitive empath, it is said that you are a psychic empath, or a person who has the gift of foresight and you can tell about things that will occur in the near future. One of the most basic ways in which you can tell whether you are a psychic empath is when you have dreams and they things happen in reality just as you saw them in your dreams. In other cases, you may also dream and see the indicators of things that will happen, rather than seeing them directly. Here's a tip for precognitive empaths: After dreaming, you may wake up immediately for a short while and then in the morning, you will forget what the dream was. Therefore, it is advisable to keep a journal on your bedside so that you can record the dream immediately so you do not forget it. To do so, you must know both sides of you well. As shared earlier, it's common to ignore, avoid, and pretend you do not have a shadow side, again, as it is often interpreted as the dark side of the personality, which we do not want to acknowledge, let alone believe exists. As you introduce yourself to your shadow, you may find it to be a difficult experience at first. Yet, once you embrace your imperfections as necessary aspects of becoming perfect, the relief of the weight of living a half existence is real-I-zed. The truth is, we all have unwanted and unacceptable aspects of ourselves. Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung refers to this as the buried part of the personality, hence the term shadow side. This pseudo-self carries the conglomeration of your negative thoughts, desires, and impulses that emerged through living and surviving your developmental years of trauma. I like to think of the shadow as the scars left on your skin from a fall or wrinkles evident of living long on this earth. These medals of honor show you are alive and surviving;
The hard knocks, tragedies, and abuse get stored somewhere and your pseudo-self volunteered to carry this weight. As we discuss regarding low adrenal function in article 14, Hormone and Hypotension Intensive Care, trying to restrict salt when you have CFS/FMS is a quick way to crash and burn. When people ask me how many glasses of water to drink a day, I tell them a much better approach is simply to check your mouth and lips. If they are dry, you are thirsty and need to drink more water. It is important to note that dry eyes and dry mouth that do not improve when you drink more water (called sicca syndrome) are also common. These symptoms can often be resolved by taking fish oil (Vectomega) and sea buckthorn oil (Omega 7 by Terry Naturally) supplements, B vitamins, and magnesium. Frequent infections. Many CFS/FMS patients have: Recurrent respiratory infections, sore throats, and swollen glands and seem to catch every cold that's going around. This tends to resolve with adrenal support (see article 2). Chronic sinusitis, nasal congestion, and postnasal drip. From one stoplight to the next, for about a hundred yards, his tires squealed and his muffler roared. Then he stopped, looked around, and smiled at the startled pedestrians. I felt angry. They felt angry. You'd feel angry. Helplessness. See if this sounds familiar: You speak to the entitled person in your life time and again about the troubling situation, yet see no change. After a few attempts, a feeling of helplessness sets in. It's as if all your attempts accomplish nothing.
People often feel as though their reasoned arguments and warnings, all their loving care, fall on deaf ears. The Empath Way The term empath has recently become a popular topic in the spiritual community as people are now beginning to realize that being sensitive is a gift and that there is no reason to be ashamed of their empathic ways. As an empath, you possess a unique gift that provides you with the opportunity to genuinely feel the needs of others and the world and universe as a whole, allowing you to be a powerful healer of the world. Your gift provides you with the opportunity to sense where more love and compassion can be offered and then offer it as a way to contribute to the raising vibrations of this loving planet. However, if not used properly, being an empath can result in obsessive behaviors that deplete your energies and prevent you from experiencing the positive wonders of your gift. If you know you are an empath or if you have a suspicion that you might be, you may have questions about what that means and where this gift even comes from. In this article, we are going to explore what it means to be an empath, why you are living with this gift, and how this gift can support you in living out your life's true purpose. We will begin with the history of what it means to be an empath and move through to a more modern definition to provide you with the opportunity to build your understanding of your gift and how it fits into the unique makeup of the universe. The History of Empath Over the past millennia, the term empath has risen up across many different religions and cultures as a way to describe people who were sensitive to others in a seemingly mystical way. But if buried and shoved away, this paralyzes you and you cannot grow into your Ideal Self. As you befriend your shadow, you can come out of the darkness and into your light to truly see what was previously unseen. This is the magnificent work and wonder of your true and Ideal Self. It is then that you have a real-I-zation of what your good and loving energy feels, looks, and is like. Now the challenge is your awareness and willingness to befriend your pseudo-self. To do so, you must first stop, look, and listen now. This is the moment to admit to yourself that you have a shadow who may be most unpleasant. As you explore who your pseudo-self is, you may discover characteristics of self-centeredness, manipulativeness, and even lack of regard for others. Along with these characteristics are dark feelings of rage, bitterness, jealousy, and maybe even vengefulness.
As you process, remember that all thoughts and feelings are normal; This is most often caused by candida/yeast. Digestive disorders, including gas, cramps, and alternating diarrhea and constipation. These are usually attributed to irritable bowel syndrome (sometimes still called spastic colon). Irritable bowel syndrome simply means that you have these symptoms and your doctor does not know why. In CFS/FMS, these are usually triggered by bowel infections, especially candida, and improve with treatment. If your gas smells like sulfur, you likely also have SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth). Continuing body-wide flu-like symptoms. These patients often have reactivation of an old virus. Allergies and sensitivities. CFS/FMS patients often have a history of being sensitive to many foods and medications. I encounter this feeling of helplessness a great deal with parents, employers, and spouses. They say they have tried every technique and strategy they know.
