Warning: This Blog is Shit

I recently completed a death doula training at which my heart cracked open and I lost my mind. I had hoped I’d learn new exciting ways to include death in the conversation at Eden Retreat Center and Wellness Community. Instead I learned a whole new way to look at Everything including Shit! It’s really All Good! You may know I’ve been talking shit for 40 years; mostly telling people they’re full of it! As a colon hydrotherapist, I’ve seen first hand the relief that letting go of shit can bring. People can be very uncomfortable, anxious, feverish and sick just because they need to take a huge dump!

Imagine my joy to learn that colon hydrotherapy is also a way to assist the dying! Turns out, it’s quite common for a person to die just after letting go enough to take a good shit! So, let that shit go, my friends! Let Love Fly!

I Am Black

From Black Lives Matter to BLACK LIBERATION by Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor is agreed to be a must read for we who believe in Freedom! Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor is assistant professor in African American Studies at Princeton University. She’s an activist and scholar; and writes on Black politics, social movements and racial inequality. From Black Lives Matter to BLACK LIBERATION is dedicated “To the parents, brothers, sisters, partners, and friends of those who have been killed by police and other forms of state-sanctioned violence and yet remain committed to the struggle for a just world.”The book is 219 pages. I’ve got half the pages bent down because of an amazing quote or mind blowing idea! Those quoted include: Frederick Douglass, Lyndon Johnson, Martin Luther King Jr., Huey P. Newton, Naomi Murakawa, Jimmy Carter, Lee Atwater, Lee Sustar, Richard Nixon, Christian Parenti, Manning Marable, Amiri Baraja, Bayard Rustin, James Baldwin, Tef Poe, Barack Obama, Vann Newkirk, Darnell Moore, Johnetta Elzie, Donna Murch, Al Sharpton, Ashley Yates, Brittney Ferrell, Charlene Carruthers, Alicia Garza, DeRay McKesson, Asha Rosa, Aldon Morris, Arundhati Roy, Megan Francis, James Forman, Mwenda Katwiwa, Abraham Lincoln, Malcolm X, John Watson, Tim Wise, Claude McKay, Vladimir Lenin, Leon Trotsky, Karl Marx, Edmund Morgan, Antonio Gramsci, and C.L.R. James.

The author does such a good job telling the history and connecting it with what we see today. Because she is so knowledgeable and an activist, every chapter has a mind blowing conclusion; on such topics as: Black Awakening in Obama’s America, A Culture of Racism, From Civil Rights to Colorblind, Black Faces in High Places, The Double Standard of Justice, The End of an Illusion, #BlackLivesMatter, and Black Liberation.

Some examples of the things I didn’t quite get until now? Every time there has been a step forward in Civil Rights Law, back to the Civil War, the white men in power immediately spin it so no progress is possible! Black People continue to be blamed for their poverty; while complete and total, political and economic reform is the only answer! Law, order and modern policing are based on racism and the subjugation of Blacks! President Obama could not be for the Blacks because it was whiteness that had got him elected! It is disingenuous to focus on poor, working class Blacks without addressing the many ways the criminal justice system has taken Black parents from their children! All these police killings of unarmed Black people is nothing new; it’s social media that has made the world aware of how heinous the situation is in the US! White supremacy and capitalism are intimately connected! “The New World we are struggling to create must destroy oppression of any type!”

I am Black. As a white, homeless, senior, woman, I mean no disrespect to People of Color, when I say, I am Black. I had dread locks for 26 years as my plea for the end of racism and beginning of Peace on Earth. Never in those 26 years did I feel as Black as I do now. In the last 5 years, a tyrannical narcissist, card carrying member of the Good Ole Boys, defrauded me of my home, inheritance, business and all my personal possessions. That’s not what made me feel Black either. It’s that I finally see how the whole system is rigged and that nobody has a chance against the man. That terrible discouragement and hopelessness is what makes me feel Black. I realize if I had been Black, when the sheriff came to physically remove me from my home; he would have just killed me instead!

Move Beyond Victim Consciousnesss!

Our last 4 blogs have been about simple things you can do for yourself to detox and heal your body. This blog introduces you to Eden’s Mental Health Tool Box. All the tools are simple, easy to use and very effective in healing even our deepest wounds. Moving Beyond Victim Consciousness is one of the simple tools you can use to heal your emotions, mind and spirit.
There is scientific evidence for something called, “the abused chain of abuse.” It means people who have been abused tend to abuse others. Victim Consciousness is our negative thoughts and beliefs, either inherited or inflicted. We verify these unhealthy thoughts and beliefs through three roles found on the victim triangle. We’re all spinning around in ourselves and in our relationships, playing one of these 3 roles: The Victim believes she’s been abused, weak and needs someone to rescue her. The Rescuer offers unasked for advice and caregiving: believing her needs don’t matter and she has the right to disrespect other’s boundaries. The Persecutor is fearful, defensive and abusive. Interacting from one of these roles is the only style of relating to ourselves and others that many of us know.
The goal of all spiritual practice and psychotherapy is to transform yourself into Observer Consciousness, to be able to welcome the teaching in every present moment. We interact with ourselves and others differently when we respond from the higher frequencies of these roles: The Observer, The Nurturer and The Asserter. The Observer is to be our best self and compassionate witness to life. The Nurturer focuses on taking care of self first and only then extends a hand to others. The Asserter perceives life as positively abundant and radiates self assurance.  
Ok, so what’s the tool you ask? There are 3 steps to wake up and recover from victim consciousness: 

Show up! This means to be present for yourself and willing to do whatever it takes to be happy and healthy.

 Align with a higher frequency in a daily practice of any kind! This can be meditation, yoga, prayer, a devotional reading, music, dancing, singing, etc.

Clear! At Eden we teach these invaluable techniques to clear negative beliefs, thoughts and feelings: Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping), “The Work” of Byron Katie, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. (We’ll show you these tools and more in future blogs.)
 A well known secret to happiness is this: The only thing we can control in life is our reaction. Change the way you think about the things that happen! There are no mistakes, ever. The Universe is unfolding as it should; it always has and it always will.
