DISSOCIATIVE IDENTITY DISORDER

I have treated clients with this disorder and it is an amazing experience to perceive facial changes, personality and speech changes, eye colour changes in an individual with this disorder.  I found this webmed article for you on this fascinating disorder.

Dissociative Identity Disorder (Multiple Personality Disorder)

Listen

 

Dissociative identity disorder (previously known as multiple personality disorder) is thought to be a complex psychological condition that is likely caused by many factors, including severe trauma during early childhood (usually extreme, repetitive physical, sexual, or emotional abuse).

What Is Dissociative Identity Disorder?

Most of us have experienced mild dissociation, which is like daydreaming or getting lost in the moment while working on a project. However, dissociative identity disorder is a severe form of dissociation, a mental process which produces a lack of connection in a person’s thoughts, memories, feelings, actions, or sense of identity. Dissociative identity disorder is thought to stem from a combination of factors that may include trauma experienced by the person with the disorder. The dissociative aspect is thought to be a coping mechanism — the person literally dissociates himself from a situation or experience that’s too violent, traumatic, or painful to assimilate with his conscious self.

Is Dissociative Identity Disorder Real?

You may wonder if dissociative identity disorder is real. After all, understanding the development of multiple personalities is difficult, even for highly trained experts. The diagnosis itself remains controversial among mental health professionals, with some experts believing that it is really an “offshoot” phenomenon of another psychiatric problem, such as borderline personality disorder, or the product of profound difficulties in coping abilities or stresses related to how people form trusting emotional relationships with others.

Other types of dissociative disorders defined in the DSM-5, the main psychiatry manual used to classify mental illnesses, include dissociative amnesia (with “dissociative fugue” now being regarded as a subtype of dissociative amnesia rather than its own diagnosis), and depersonalization/derealization disorder.

 

What Are the Symptoms of Dissociative Identity Disorder?

Dissociative identity disorder is characterized by the presence of two or more distinct or split identities or personality states that continually have power over the person’s behavior. With dissociative identity disorder, there’s also an inability to recall key personal information that is too far-reaching to be explained as mere forgetfulness. With dissociative identity disorder, there are also highly distinct memory variations, which fluctuate with the person’s split personality.

The “alters” or different identities have their own age, sex, or race. Each has his or her own postures, gestures, and distinct way of talking. Sometimes the alters are imaginary people; sometimes they are animals. As each personality reveals itself and controls the individuals’ behavior and thoughts, it’s called “switching.” Switching can take seconds to minutes to days. When under hypnosis, the person’s different “alters” or identities may be very responsive to the therapist’s requests.

CREATING SPIRITUAL MUSIC

One of the greatests gifts I possess is my innate ability to create spiritual music. Music is frequency and all life, emotion, colour and matter is made of vibrations and frequency.

Harnessing the emotional aspects of mood and environment into musical frequency is a process of beauty and extreme internalisation of resonance and beingness.  To create spiritual music you must be in tune to the wave of existence.

Below is a song and video I have created called “The Song Of Grace”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-Qy3Ys5Wdc

I remember years ago channelling amazing spiritual music where I was speaking in Cherokee of all things, channelling an american indian medicine woman.  The recordings of these songs done with two other musicians was awe-inspiring, natural and immediate without planning.   One of these songs has a link below to my dropbox of the recording.  It is on my album Spirit In The Key Of Rainbows and it is called Heartsong.  Click on the link below and you will be given access to this free.  There is a man on didgeridoo, a lady on piano and myself vocalising.  It was done one evening in my clinic room impromptu.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/4x63nr7f7iu7b26/3%20Heartsong%20Mastered.mp3?dl=0

Here is the link to purchase the album if you are interested in more of my music

I have placed some examples of beautiful spiritual music here below.
The link at the bottom is a clip I found on youtube called the Song of the Butterfly done improvisationally by a hungarian group.

WHERE IS THE LOVE?

Why should be even need to ask that question?  Isn’t it normal to love?  Well for some people it is very normal and for others it isn’t.  What is unconditional love versus conditional love?

Unconditional love means you love unconditionally.  You give without the thought of needing to receive.

Conditional love means you love with rules and conditions which if not meant means you are likely to withdraw the love.

I have encountered both sorts of people many times.  The givers and the takers, the carers and the sacrificers.

Who are you in your own world?  Do you take care of yourself or do you sacrifice yourself?  What about others?

We can all have agendas in life.  Refugees, war, homeless people, unemployed people, rich people, religions, propoganda, politics and money.

Unconditionally we should be sending out high frequency vibes everywhere to help this world to assume the understanding and compassionate knowledge of loving unconditionally.  Make a little love,  make a little move towards peace and harmony.

If you are used and abused, say no more and give yourself the love you are lacking.  Do not make neglect your mantra, instead embrace the possibilities of the abundance of love.

This world has to learn to love before it thinks!

Use the tools you have and meditate when you are able.

Follow Your Heart Living

This video is so inspiring.  It is a medicine woman who has constructed her ideal home herself and living her heart life.  Please watch it as it really makes you think about creating alternative choices in life.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evsu9NOo4hQ

It makes me think about life even more.  Recently my mum passed away of heart failure at the age of 95 years.  It is something that makes everything in your world upside down and you have to re-evaluate your life and everything you hold dear in the process.

I have been looking at various youtube videos for a while and realise that I often look at Tiny Houses, different lifestyles and things that are unique.  I am pondering my own living.

When life throws you lemons you can make lemonade as they say, or you can go sour and forget to put the sugar in.  I choose the sweetness of life.

As a part of this choice I have decided to walk more everyday; to not sweat the small stuff and of course to be grateful for everything I already have.

That is a key to living a heart life.  Know you are doing what you love and if you aren’t, change it.  You are empowered to change in the connection to yourself.  It is expected don’t you think to explore your own self deeply until you find a fit.

So I hope you find a great fit for yourself in your life choices.

Namaste and blessings.  I am turning off the computer and going for a walk in the forest to talk to nature, God and the spirit of my parents passed.

love and light

WHAT DOES BURNOUT LOOK LIKE?

Burnout looks like this.


Lol

Really though, burnout looks like this…..


Burnout is when you just can’t go on.  thinking, being, knowing, continuing, sleeping, being awake, talking, answering questions, pretending.

If you are experiencing burnout, one of the hardest things to do is to step off the treadmill but it is the thing you need to force yourself to do the most.  The consequences of burnout are breakdown.  Emotional/physical/spiritual/energetic breakdown.

Some strategies to counter burnout are:

Remembering it isn’t going to be the end of the world if you change the status quo.

People will respond to you how you expect them to sub-consciously so take some time to meditate and be alone to evaluate what you really want in your environment.

Rest, even if it means laying down for twenty minutes or turning off the devices!

Do not answer the phone, the email or the door for a mandatory half hour period every day.

Be kind to yourself first.

Eat well and drink plenty of water.

Watch a funny movie and don’t pay yourself out for the downtime.  

Read a book, do a self-hypnosis, get a massage.

Remember the key to avoiding burnout is to recognise patterns that need changing and do one thing at a time to change them.  If you try to throw the baby and the bathwater out at the same time you have probably already burned out.

Take magnesium, zinc and B vitamins to help you help your nervous system and body to cope.

STOP for a bit!

I hope this helps you.  You are allowed to be yourself.  That is why you were put on this Earth in the first place.  It is all about self love and acceptance not work, worry and strain incorporating stress.

Please if you haven’t already, get this hypnosis track and relax!!!!!!  Please look after yourself.  You deserve it.  It isn’t only your car that needs servicing.

LIVING OFF THE GRID

What does that mean?  It means living without the use of power generated by organisations.  It means self-sufficiency.

Living in isolation isn’t necessary but living without the normal provided services which cost us money and resources and instead using nature’s resources is all part of living off the grid.

You would expect to have a bit of land, solar panels potentiall, a creek for water?  You would expect to have to grow all your own food and farm animals, provide your own clothing or buy cheaply.  Would you be on a pension?  Would you rely on the government?  The idea is no.  You return to a natural way of living before societies constructed our needs and wants models in the media.

It would take a bit of work and intelligent reading to know who to live off the grid if you have been societised.  After all so many expect a pizza delivery, a supermarket shop, a clothes shop, a telephone or internet service, a tv channel, parties to attend and concerts to see.   Well living off the grid doesn’t preclude you shopping or attending social events, but it does mean you have to find a way to generate your own power instead of using provided electricity services etc.

I have found such an inspiring short video for you of a lady by the name of Jill Redwood.  She has been very happy self-sufficient and living off the grid for 30 years and her story is inspiring.  This is a must watch feel good video.  She grows her own food, repairs her own house, makes her own cheese from her own goats,  channels water from a stream and irrigates her crops, and she has a dunny (outside toilet).

I remember living in a caravan while building my own home twenty- six years ago and the emptying the toilet bucket never really gets comfortable, but the rest of it was awesome.  Living on a block of land with two children running in nature whilst you construct your home.  The home was far too big and felt like a mansion once we got out of the caravan after 16 months, however  once you experience living simply, it does grow on you and I have a hankering for it still in many ways.  Perhaps mine will be the grey nomad existence?  Who knows.

However, this lady has it sorted and living alone, finds extreme comfort in her lifestyle.

MOBILE PHONES AND HEMORRHOIDS

“Well there is another interesting topic.  Did you know that you can get hemorrhoids from mobile phone usage?
Perhaps not many people really think about this but it is a real problem in todays social media world.

People sit on the toilet too long and take their mobile phones in with them and read.  Yes they do!
I have clients who confess and I know people who do it.  People these days just don’t go to the toilet to evacuate their bowels.  People go there for a break, a respite, a quiet minute.

In our hectic lives of emails and social media, people will even be addicted enough to take their mobile devices in with them and sit on the toilet awaiting nature’s processes whilst being completely devoid of time contrainsts.  Their mind is a frenzy of activity and their body just lets go.  Then it finishes letting go and their mind doesn’t even notice.

How many levels of candy crush does it take to get a hemorrhoid?  Why is this linked?

Sitting on the toilet in this position once you have competed your ablutions so to speak, will place pressure on the under-carriage.  The muscles aren’t made for half an hour of download time.  Leave your mp3 downloads to sitting at the desk or chair.  Your sphincter muscle will overstretch from the downward pressure that toilet posture will produce and the next thing you know there is a stretched area and whammo your veins are popping through and you have a hemorrhoid arrive on the next push episode.

Wow Katherine, you are being graphic today.  Well it is because life can be a pain in the arse at the best of times when life’s pressures build up without adding to the physiology of the cause and effect process.

My advice is have a laugh, live your life without your phone for at least this long.  Go the the toilet because you need to and go outside or to your workstation to check your emails the old fashioned way.  

Well actually I expect this is an age old problem of reading on the toilet.  It used to be newspapers or articles in a magazine.  I am sure we have all seen the movies and tv shows depicting this as a funny joke against “dear ol’ dad”. These days however I am hearing many women complaining of it also.  Leave the reading to the length of time it takes you to do your business and remember the outside world will still be there when you get out of the cubicle to embrace and enjoy.

Here is an article about hemorrhoids for the uninitiated”.

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD ARE NOT SO DIFFERENT IN NEEDS

I consult with people from around the world on a daily basis.  Today in my clinic I conducted life coaching and medical intuitive work with clients in the USA, Wales and Australia.  Some days I consult with the UK, ASIA,  Canada,  France, Europe, Australia, USA etc.   What is the common denominatior?

The common denominator is people who have a common need.  Advice, life coaching, intuitive information, healing and insights.  People of different races and cultures may have differing traditions and practices but the thing that is worldwide is the need for healing, peace and community.

People in the western world may appear similar.  Similar iphones, dress, music and possessions.  They may also have common stressors like busy lives, dissasociation and dis-ease with life in a simple form.

People in asia have very similar likes and dislikes to the western world but some cultures are high pressure and some are laid-back.

Commonality of experiences and media exposure in most countries these days I find cause stress.  Visions of terrorism, poverty and aggression, politics and hopelessness must be tempered with visions of grace,, joy and abundance for us to survive a discontinuation of our social norms.  There is too much going on for everyone on the planet except for those blessed with isolation in some form.

Isolation is a form of detachment.  This can be healthy as well as difficult and unhealthy depending on its form.

Loneliness is an isolation which has disease effects.  Blissful isolation in a media free, natural environment is a form of disease release and comfort.  We are by nature animals of the Earth.  We need time in nature and freedom to breathe to be healthy.  People around the world are very common in a need for peace, happiness and community.

I embrace this need by providing insights and healing for people in my consultation environment.  Sometimes you only need a pair of eyes or a mirror to understand yourself and your environment.  This is the nature of good advice.  Impartial accuracy and compassion.  I love my work!

If you want to experience some of this for yourself and gain insight and peaceful freedom in your forward movement please feel free to contact me for a consultation.  You can also listen completely free of charge to the radio program I conduct weekly.  Links are on my website.  There are hundreds of hours of free advice and insight here.

Namaste.

A SNAPSHOT OF LIFE IN THE MONTH OF MARCH

March has been a very busy month for me.  It is usually a busy life for me but I have been particularly busy this month.

We held a three day healing festival in Port Macquarie for my students,  I conducted three reiki classes and did the usual clinic, weekly radio hosting of my program on www.newsforthesoul.com called Connect To Creator, and wrote a lot of material for my new partnership business Scale It Up Now.

I thought about the juggle of the active mind.  I have a very active mind!  Sometimes it won’t be quiet at all and sometimes it is serene.  Yes I think if you could picture my mind you could picture a juggler with a series of balls, deciding which ones to allocate a topic or task you and then rotating them with skill.

I have a skillful mind.  I have an amazing soul that tirelessly works and invents for the greater good.  I have a human body which sometimes wonders what the heck I am doing?

Do you have that problem?  A mind full of tricks and inventions and a body with a finite energy source.  I look after myself and rest too.  Don’t get me wrong, I am no machine of work.  I am however actively engaged in life.  I sing in a barbershop quartet,  I am rehearsing in a musical for a broadway production, I am writing courses, material , hypnosis scripts,, books and music.  I even wrote a song this month and recorded it.

No I am not superhuman, stupidly driven or mad.  I am living the way I live.  I am guaging my surroundings, my life and my intentions, my soul purpose and finding ways to fulfil them.   Yes I do meditate and sit quietly.  Sometimes I vegetate in front of the TV.  I do all sorts of things to assist my peace.  I walk in nature and I swim in my pool.  I laugh a lot and I experiment with silly things that take my fancy.

A snapshot of the month of March has its own inclusions.   I bought new makeup called Yunique which I decided is marvellous.  It didn’t cause me excema on my eyelid.  Something eyeshadows can do.  Therefore I give it a plus.

My youngest son wrote new music on the piano. My other son showed me photos of his holiday with partner and son on facebook and I saw him loving fatherhood.  My middle son is building my new website and is often emailing me so we are getting lots of chats in.  My daughter is busy with six children so we don’t talk as often as could be perhaps, but I love seeing photos of the kids and the odd skype session.    Sometimes I pine for them and days when they were growing up that I saw more of them.  I did a bit of that in March.  Where did I get the time to combine all these things?  Sometimes in my dreams!

Life is full of dreams, abundances, joys and fortunate events. Life is especially full of these when you receive messages from friends, clients and family that say nice things about your efforts.

Abundance is life and where there is empowerment there is no fear.

I wish you abundance.

Namaste”

WATCH THIS TIMEWARPING IN MOTION – I LOVE LONDON

“I looked at the link below and it made me really think.  It is a fantastic film footage from 1890 to 1920 showing identical scenes between London in those times and London now.

It made me feel nostaligic to see places I had visited in 2009 and knew.  I remembered being at the gates of Buckingham Palace with my husband and two youngest boys.  I remember their hijinx on the statues out the front, climbing the statue in haste so they didn’t get caught and sliding down the lions.  Aged 7 and 16 it was hysterical to watch their joy and mischief.  Things like trying to make the guard at the sentry box smile, when they are not supposed to by pulling faces at him.  You can only do so much to get there in time when boys are on the run in front of you in a crowd.  I give the guy credit for not moving a facial muscle!  

Memories came flooding back for me, shopping at Hamleys toy shop,  five stories of toy shop that had my children thinking they had gone to heaven, even if we couldn’t take all the toys home!  So I can imagine what it would do for the older generation who knew London in earlier times.   It makes me think of all things about aging and what the world has become from what it was.  Some things never change and some things change drastically.

When you view this film footage there will be some recognisiton of landmarks but there are other factors to make you muse over life.

Firstly, I doubt anyone from the old footage is still on the planet living.  The horse and carts where now there is traffic was a real insight into how we lived.  Ladies on bicycles on what would now be traffic strewn roads.

It is like watching an amazing dream in black and white.  Some of the footage is astounding and congratulations to the person who replicated identical scenes from 2015 to 1890s etc.  

Please watch and enjoy a travel back in time and reminisce about how life has changed.”

HOW TO BECOME A SUCCESSFUL AUTHOR – WRITTEN BY A PULISHER

” Today we have a treat.  It is a post of advice made by Marc Allen who is the publisher of New World Library.  Marc is a friend and he is the publisher of Eckhart Tolle.    
I interviewed Marc Allen for my program, Connect To Creator onwww.newsforthesoul.com.    He is a wise and compassionate man who manifests a marvellous and abundant reality.  

Here is the link to the interview I did with Marc Allen for your enjoyment.  It goes for one full hour program so settle in and get comfortable.  This is about manifesting your dreams.

http://www.newsforthesoul.com/show-mp3s/katherine-bright-interviews-marc-allen-june-1316/

These are his words and so I relay them as part of todays newsletter.  

If you wish to become a published author, you cannot do better than listen to this successful publisher’s advice”.

 

“A writer just emailed me and asked me what I would do to launch an ebook if I was a first-time author. I wrote back:

Good question. It all depends on you, and what you really enjoy doing — a whole lot of good writers are not very good promoters, and a whole lot of good promoters are not very good writers.

I started out self-publishing a few books of my own. Then I found some distributors. Then I published a friend’s book, then another. Then I realized I had a publishing company. I didn’t really enjoy the promotion and distribution part of it, so I eventually found other far more capable people to handle that side of it, so I could focus on the editorial side.

Here’s what I’d suggest to first time authors: (1) study the art and craft of writing and create the very best piece of work you can, then re-write and edit carefully, so it has no grammatical errors or typos; (2) study the publishing industry, and see if you have something that an established publisher would be interested in; (3) if you self-publish, realize that to be successful, you’ve got to do everything an established publisher does — edit well, get a good cover and book design, launch (I’d definitely do print copies as well as an e-book), find distribution, and promote.

It might all seem overwhelming… but I recommend beginning authors go to the big annual publishing convention — Book Expo America (see BookExpoAmerica.com

) — it’s in New York this year, May 31 to June 2. The entire publishing industry is laid out in front of you, including book distributors like National Book Network that will take on single-book publishers and distribute them. You rub shoulders with all kinds of people in the industry, and see all the choices you have: get an established publisher, get an agent to represent you to publishers, or self-publish and get distribution.There are also these new publishing models now (like Barrett-Koehler, I think), where publishing companies have the author finance the production of the book, then they do promotion and distribution and split income 50-50 (or something like that — I haven’t worked with any of these publishers, but it seems like a good option for certain kinds of writers. Avoid “vanity publishers,” who make all their money off their authors; find the publishers who make money off book sales!)

Don’t let it overwhelm you. Do what you can. The important thing is to get your book out there… and then stay behind it in any way you can. I know a writer who writes and self-publishes novels, and she only sells through Amazon and one distributor, New Leaf in Atlanta. That’s all she does. And she’s sold over 10,000 copies of her first novel. Not bad.

I wish you well.”   Marc Allen

MONEY VERSUS INTEGRITY IN EARTH PROTECTION

As humanity progresses on this planet, we seem to be having a large segment of the population who have become excessively focused on the profit at any expense mentality.  This is so below the possibility of human consciousness in the greater scheme of our universal plan.

Human beings have degenerated our planet at such a rate that it is almost impossible to have contemplated this only a few hundred years ago.  We are destroying rainforests, landscapes, rivers and oceans with practical disregard at an astounding rate.  Species are becoming extinct at an enormous rate.  What are we doing?!!!!!!

Why do we think we are immune?  Humanity is considered a scourge by Mother Earth in some places instead of a functioning proportion of an intelligent species, placed here to respect and function in integrous unity with all other species.

Many humans have become consciously aware.  Indigenous tradition respects and supports the breath of this planet of ours.  Yet as the enlightened and prosperous races continue to deny the simple energetics by which we are bound, the Earth suffers and our resources diminish.

We are finite, not infinite as a species and as a planet.   The time it takes us to die is really in our hands.  Denying climate change doesn’t change it.  Politicians cannot dictate how the Earth reacts except by condoning the use or lack thereof of force or chemicals.  Respect is being lost as it is replaced by greed and acquisition, prestige or consumerism.

Let us all pray for some commonsense to prevail and sustainable practice to be part of the common mindset in all races and places on our beautiful planet.  

Please take the time to watch this link.  It is one upsetting, but to me incredulous aspect of denial we are currently experiencing.  Eloquently and succintly put,  Robert Kennedy Junior speaks in fact about the Dakota Pipeline in the USA.  This is a prime example of lack of integrity and commonsense in profiting financially at  the expense of human welfare.  The Hopi Indians have a profesy about the Black Snake you may also look up on google which has been linked by the indigenous to this pipeline.
