Eradicating Suicide. Blow the trumpet. I wanted to feel up to making a video for world suicide prevention day, but after a quick trip to Spokane, street healing, I wasn’t up to being seen in my day-long PJs. But my take on suicide prevention is different than many of the posts today. I WAS that… Continue reading Eradicating Suicide
Meditation Although many start using mediation or mindful-ness simply as a way to calm the mind or be present when manic, it can lead to other spiritual experiences. “If you’re not aware of meditation dangers, they can unexpectedly come and cause many troubles in your life, such as frightening visions, non-physical contacts, or even insanity.”… Continue reading Demystifying Meditation’s Dangers
I am 41 years old now, but the deep cutting scars left behind from my 16th year of life are still clearly visible. In my brain-speciality Traditional Naturopathic practice, teenagers want to reach out and touch them, a link between their current self and their future self, a self they have often wondered would still… Continue reading Self-Harm: 4 Steps to Cure the Cutting
When my kundalini energy awakened I started seeing snakes everywhere: on TV, newspapers, I heard conversations about snakes and even dreamed about them. I felt the kundalini energy moving in me and causing physical discomfort.

As I sat on my mat, a bat-man-signal-like light emanated from the top of my head, then the Lord spoke to my heart and said "Yoga is bodily worship of idols and it yokes you to spirits seeking worship.

They were then entering my mind through the top of my head!
I woke up in a fright to say the least. My arms were flailing in front of my face and I was gasping for air. Something heavy hung in the air, and I felt like I was drowning under deep, black water and the pressure on my chest was unbearable. The most aweful vibrations and sound were reverberating through my like knives, and I swear I could hear crying and growling through a sound so loud and obnoxious that I should not have been able to hear anything else. The sound was like a fog-horn or train whistle, or like that line from Dumb and Dumber when he asks if you want to hear the most annoying sound ever.
One of the main complaints I hear in my Dr. Amen Brain Health Coaching Practice from parents of young children is regarding night terrors, but they are not isolated to children. I can relate. My earliest memories starting around age two were of nightly night terrors. And I wet the bed until about age ten.… Continue reading How to End Night Terrors (part ii)
Did you know that your brain actually has neurotransmitters that function as ON and OFF switches? I used to have this same problem, and had to Ambien to even get any sleep, but that is not very congruous for an author who writes med free books!
Is it mental illness? Or is it something else? Could it be something Spiritual or Otherworldly?

These… Continue reading Mental Illness vs. Spiritual Experiences
