New View on and Tools to Heal Compulsive Behavior and Addictions. If You feel this is for You – give it a go.

Came across this video lately and thought I’d share briefly as it describes perfectly the way I’d advice others to deal with whatever addictions or compulsive behaviors they might be struggling with. It delivers a very interesting view on dealing with those, through looking at them as a Gift with no Judgement whatsoever but understanding, curiosity and embracing the lesson it carries  ‪#‎OutOfAddiction‬ ‪#‎HealingAddiction‬‪#‎AccessingWisdomInside‬ GIVE YOURSELF A GIFT OF GETTING TO KNOW YOURSELF.

It’s an interview with Mary O’Malley, author of “What’s In the Way IS the Way” . Briefly about Mary :

In the early 1970s, a powerful awakening led Mary O’Malley to begin changing her relationship with her challenges, freeing her from a lifelong struggle with darkness. Mary’s new book What’s In the Way IS the Way, provides tools and techniques for healing fears, anxieties, shame and confusion, and transforming struggles into the peace we all long for. Mary is committed to helping people heal their inner wars, so they can become a part of the healing of our planet.” 

It’s pretty good damn interview – definitely worth a listen for .. probably most of people out there 😉

“Healing – as bringing Awareness and Mercy INTO That, which we had held in Judgement and in Fear”.

How to Overcome Addiction, Compulsion, Bad Habits. Self Compassion – The Gift of Our Compulsions:

“We can heal the war inside ourselves, we can begin to heal the planet”. Start with Yourself and see ripple effects of this healing in the Outer Reality …

When The Body Says No: Mind/Body Unity and the Stress- Disease Connection, Addictions – Amazing talk by Gabor Maté.

gabor-mate-new-site I’ve been interested in Gabor Maté’s work for a few years now. First came across him during watching one of The Zeitgeist Movement movies and his points of view resonated with me deeply. Since then I decided to explore his work more and never did regret it. Gabor is  is a Hungarian-born, Canadian physician who specializes in the study and treatment of addiction and is also widely recognized for his perspective on Attention Deficit Disorders and his firmly held belief in the connection between mind and body health. He has authored four books exploring topics including attention deficit disorder, stress, developmental psychology and addiction.

“Rather than offering quick-fix solutions to these complex issues, Dr. Maté weaves together scientific research, case histories, and his own insights and experience to present a broad perspective that enlightens and empowers people to promote their own healing and that of those around them.

For twelve years Dr. Maté worked in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside with patients challenged by hard-core drug addiction, mental illness and HIV, including at Vancouver’s Supervised Injection Site. With over 20 years of family practice and palliative care experience and extensive knowledge of the latest findings of leading-edge research, Dr. Maté is a sought-after speaker and teacher, regularly addressing health professionals, educators, and lay audiences throughout North America.” Watch some of his talks (starting with the video of the title of this post) to see why that is.

An excerpt from the video to encourage you to listen to this amazing interview from this year’s Science and Non-Duality Conference :

You can’t separate the mind from the body. And we now know scientifically that there’s no basis for those separations. So, it’s not that there’s a nervous system and the immune system, and hormonal apparatus, and cardiovascular system, and the emotional system; It’s all a part of One and the same system. There’s a science called psychoneuroimmunology, that studies the connections and the Unity of the emotional system, immune system, hormone system and nervous system. It turns out they are all connected.

Gabor-Mate_010914 There are differentiated functions of the same super system. It turns out that the nervous system wires them all together like a giant electrical grid, connects the bone marrow to the brain, sends messages from the bone marrow to the brain, from the brain to the bone marrow, where our immune cells and brain cells are manufactured, from the thymus gland in the neck, where the white cells are stored – to the brain and vice versa, from the gut to the brain, from the heart to the brain; brain to the heart. The Heart itself is a nervous system. It’s like a second brain in a sense, it has certain predictive capacities. (…)

Then they all secrete the messenger substances into the circulation and they talk to one another. Biochemically. So that the immune cells, the white cells in the circulation have the capacity to manufacture every hormone at the brain manufacture. And so the immune system is talking to the brain. And the brain is talking to the immune system. The immune system has been called the floating brain. It has got learning capacity, reactive capacity and memory. Just like the brain does. And then there’s the brain gut connection . (…) The gut sends much more messages to the brain than come the other way. It seems to be much more intelligent than your thoughts. The gut receives the messages from the whole brain. It magnifies them and sends back up. So when you are listening to the gut feeling, you are getting the whole picture. Your intellect and your thoughts are only a small part of your evaluative apparatus. Emotions come much before the real thoughts. (…)
