Bullies are they born or made?

As a child, I was terrified of everything.  If I could have lived with the chooks in the back yard I would have.  They understood me.  I could talk to them for hours and they would nod their heads in agreement.

But of course, I had to be educated, clothed and fed so trips to school, back to the family home, to friends big and small, to town, to ballet lessons etc etc had to be endured.

The time when I met bullies were in my working life.  Authority, a huge fear to accommodate. Despite all my tools of EFT, Catherine Ponder affirmation, swallowing selenium my great love water, I still get the butterflies in the guts syndrome when having to face authority and the unknown.

Now as my 70th birthday approaches at the end of the year (oh wow doesn’t time hike) I look at the advice I would have given my small self.

If you want to hide with the chooks that’s okay but when you get hungry what happens then?  There is only a certain amount of apples and bananas you can eat in a day.  Your diet will have to be varied.  What about having a shower.  You don’t like being unclean, do you?  What about toilet stops?  What about that wonderful book by enid Blyton that has just been returned at the library and you have your name down for it?

So my little person how are we going to manage all the tasks that lay ahead of you?

Staying with the chooks is really not an option.

You don’t like blood.  Remember when you fell over and broke your tooth?  All that blood.  Yuk!

MMMMM so what do we do.  You have a lot of living to do.

Actually, on thinking about the lost opportunities in my life I have a revelation:  I can blame my wooseyness for not being an achiever.  Or can I.  That’s another EFT to look at.  What have I achieved, what do I want to achieve especially now I am looking for a job and nobody wants to pay me. I am a has been that never was anyway.  Oh dear tangent time.

Karen Denby My Niuean Way

I have decided to write a book ‘Don’t Panic H.E.L.P is on its way. (Working Title) Copyright KM-D Nov 2017

P  Prepare for Resilience

HYDRATE:  Grab a drink of water when the panic attacks.  Imagine the water gurgling down your throat.

Visualise the water mixing with all the contents of your clever stomach.  Watch in your mind’s eye the swirling and churning that is preparing the water and food on its journey.  Be amazed at the wonders and miracles of the involuntary processes in the body.

EFT:  Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping)

Similar to acupuncture and acupressure, Tapping is a set of techniques which utilize the body’s energy meridian points. You can stimulate these meridian points by tapping on them with your fingertips – literally tapping into your body’s own energy and healing power.  You can have one point that you particularly like that can be stimulated straight after hydrating.

LOWER YOUR HEART RATE: Take your pulse.  Count the beats per half minute.

While you do this, breathing through your nose visualise a pink cloud into your lungs.  Concentrate on what is happening in your body. Are you trembling?  Are your knees knocking? Do you feel faint, nauseous, angry, fearful etc.  Have an affirmation which you can relate to.  e.g. ‘I am perfectly fine’.  Say this over and over in your mind until your pulse has calmed.

PREPARE FOR RESILIENCE:

To build up resilience is a personal journey.  Some methods to gain mental health resilience depend on the individual. Some like to hug their friends. Go To the Melbourne Science Centre

Alternative Healing

After years of researching alternative and complementary healing methods I can say:

EFT (emotional freedom technique) is the start to recovery

add

Positive Affirmations (Catherine Ponder’s Healing Affirmations)

a Good Movie try ‘The Belier Family’

try laughing-even forced laughing helps

a Good Book try ‘anything written by Fannie Flagg and Barbara Ewing

Talk to a few 5 year old kids (they are the wisest people on the planet) they will come out with stuff that is wise and will make you laugh

while you are doing affirmations take a walk or bike ride & sing your affirmations

‘I an healthy now’ I have perfect health now’ lalalala

Do something nice for a friend-buy them a goldfish

Grow veges and hippeastrum-beautiful

Have good eats and good sleeps

Get positive vibes from positive people-toss the negative ones aside

New Moon the ways of the cat

IMG_2738

There is so much going on in the world at the moment and if you listen and read and see the news in the media most of the news isn’t that great.
Sometimes it is quite difficult to feel positive about life when things seem to be just so crazy.  We can theorise and cast opinions but most of us who are invisible just have to get on with it.

I have a lot of tools to raise my head above the mire of negativity.  These include staying around good mates, EFT (tapping-and sometimes tap dancing & not falling into the sink) reading the signs with symbology, dowsing, colour healing, going to the movies, getting a great book, researching stuff I am interested in and sometimes I sit and take lessons from the cat.

Her name is Stormy Blue named by my grandkids.  I call her Kitty as I find it is easier to stand out in the middle of the night in my nana nightie and long stretched out of shape jersey calling ‘Kitty Kitty Kitty’ rather than Stormy Blue.

Kitty has a wonderful way of stretching her body.  I often try to stretch the same way she does but I get tangled up in my jersey.  I go to yoga & do ‘down dog’ I reckon it could be called ‘up cat’ but who am I to change years of traditions.  stretching is great because with my old bones I can moan about my sore muscles instead of commiserating about the state of the world and that my fave Bounty Bars are so much dearer than they were last month.

Kitty yawns beautifully a wide open mouthed nearly dislocating jaw yawn-I love to do this too.  My ears creak and groan but there is something else to bleat about rather than how there is so much domestic violence in the country I live and we have the highest statistics in the western world (I think)

I watch Kitty climb trees thinking she can fly.  I always shoo all the birds away when Kitty decides to hang off the branches as I would be devastated if she grabbed a bird.  I keep her very well fed with the hope that she will not think the local feathered friends are not breakfast worthy.  This activity certainly keeps my mind away from the natural disasters that are overtaking the world at the moment.

Kitty sleeps and sleeps and sleeps. I have tried to sleep and sleep but I can’t.  I just sleep.  But watching Kitty quiver and twitch while she sleeps keeps my mind away from the dreadful terrorist attacks that have been taking place in the world recently.

so with the new moon rising this week-make like a cat and just meow through each day and take lessons from our feline friends.  If you don’t like cats, I am sure there are other animals you can take lessons from as long as it is not rabbits as the world is over populated as there are 7.5 billion people at this second and we don’t need anymore.

watch the world population clock as the world goes down the gurgler
