Whatever You Fear Has Already HappenedWritten by Susan Dunn, MA Clinical Psychology, The EQ Coach

Childhood lasts a long time for elephant, as it does for human. They have much to learn about survival and their culture. They’re dependant on their mothers, emotionally and physically, for 3-5 years, and often aren’t weaned til their 10th year. Why this long dependency? Because they aren’t born knowing how to survive, they must learn it. Similar to humans and apes, much of elephant’s brain development takes place after birth. This allows for (and demands) learned behaviors, not just instinctual behavior.
Like humans, elephant is born with minimal “innate” knowledge. For instance, it’s only through watching adults elephant learns its trunk can be used to pick things up, or scratch or drink with.
Now what if young elephant calf, with it’s new brain (“impressionable”) is captured and its leg chained to a stake in ground that he can’t pull away from no matter how hard he pulls? And at same time, he’s scared. Scientists are discovering that fear and memory get stored together in cells for a long time. Once coupled with fearful events, they continue to fire in unison long after original event is over. At an early age, elephant has learned “helplessness,” that when that thing’s on its leg, no matter what it does, it can’t get away, so eventually it gives up and quits trying. And there stands that 7-ton animal tethered by nothing, really, except its fearful memories.
Has this happened to you? (Think about it.) Could coaching help? (Think about it.)

Mind, Body, Spirit Healing vs. Traditional Psychotherapy/PsychoanalysisWritten by Dorothy M. Neddermeyer, PhD, MSW, CCH, CRT
Continued from page 1
The higher self has somewhat of a higher perspective of our human "doings" here. This can be likened to a view of our life path and actions from a helicopter above us. This higher self is akin to our "soul self." I like to call it "all seeing self"...constantly moving us around on this chessboard of life. This soul self or "higher self" knows just exactly what we need to do at any moment and strives to tell us through such things as dreams and instincts. Connecting with this "higher self" consciously is very empowering. Working with this metaphysical principle is often called "transpersonal" because it transports us to a direct contact with highest part of ourselves. Consciously connecting higher self, subconscious mind, and conscious mind allows us to have a balanced and complete metaphysical healing. (The subconscious mind is inductive computer that cannot deduct, but merely remembers all perceptions we have ever had, from any lifetime.) Metaphysical and Mind, Body, Spirit Healing In metaphysical healing, Facilitator assists person to connect with three major parts of themselves—mind, body, spirit, and to go back to inner child, or "child of inner light." All things came from light, so internally we are all light, no matter what camouflage (depression, anxiety, panic attacks, anger, shame, guilt, sadness, eating disorders, substance abuse, etc.) we have adopted to keep our "inner child" safe. We ourselves often do not know any of this consciously, but when you learn it, and consciously give this "trilogy" our empowerment to act in our lives, amazing healing occurs. This is true spiritual healing. We have many bodies that all empathize and work to help one another. The physical is lowest or most "base" of these bodies, so that when these different bodies have problems that hurt us, they eventually show up in this body. Since all bodies help each other by drawing attention to some special part of us, we cannot avoid dealing with a problem. The soul directs attention there by running "most powerful" emotional experience over and over again - at least vibrationally - so that we will eventually "get it" and look for original cause...In this soul reclaiming technique of looking for damaged "inner child" becomes very important. This is because when we are hurt too badly we sort of "splinter off" or "cocoon" into child we are at that moment of most hurt and dis-empowered self. The person we are just continues on doing best we can to grow and develop. When we become strong enough, soul urge to become "whole " again becomes empowered, seeks out means by which we can "reclaim" this "inner child," who seeks to help us become whole again. Metaphysical healing is a very simple process, though its explanation is lengthy. We consciously know of this child part of us and it's pain inside. Unfortunately, we are seldom given tools with which to reclaim this part of us and unite this inner child with person we have become now... This transpersonal healing is very complete, much easier and more efficient than you can believe, and wonderfully fulfilling. This is original abandonment: when we separate off from ourselves because we simply are seeking to learn and grow and lesson seems way too hard, we become "segmented off," less powerful, and believe we have to be victims. We are all very powerful, incredible "beings of Light," and it is time we took control of that loving power and help each other heal and recognize beauty of all our "inner child self;" help them become reclaimed and we, therefore, become whole, healed, beautiful beings with a higher perspective of our true spiritual wholeness. Only then, can we accomplish what we have come here to do and recognize our soul's real purpose for being here at this time. The benefits of healing are all encompassing. In working with people for 23 years, I have learned, no matter how urgent or grim a person's predicament seems to be, I know without doubt if they are WILLING to do mental work of going within to release old beliefs, feelings, thought patterns and forgiving, anything can be healed. The belief that some issues or conditions are ‘incurable' whether it is emotions or physical illness, which is so frightening to so many people, only means that particular issue or condition cannot be cured by ‘outer' methods and that person needs to GO WITHIN to effect healing. Whether issue is anger, sadness, fear, guilt, shame, or humiliation there is a negative thought pattern that produces them—thus these consistent thinking patterns create our experiences. A condition can be as annoying as acne or as dreaded and frightening as ‘C' word—Cancer. By changing our thought patterns, we can change our experience, thus healing condition. The issue or condition came from inner trauma person experienced and can be healed—never to return again. ###
