To lighten the load

Make sure your only carrying today’s burdens. 
Too often we carry far more than necessary,
Reduce your load by dropping tomorrow’s worries, and yesterday’s baggage. 
Present pressures and problems are usually enough. 
Leave tomorrow’s until later. 

“Every morning cries to us: do wat u ought and trust what may be. 

Johann Wolfgang Goethe. 1749-1832

Find Your Inner TruthWith an Affirmation Board

So how can you get clear on what you want? How do you find your inner truth and reclaim your power? I want to share with you a practice Louise and I call My Affirmation Board.
An affirmation board is a self-portrait. It’s a presentation of everything your entire being says yes to. If you are familiar with the notion of a “vision board,” it’s very similar but we want you to know that you don’t have to be limited to just images. The form of your affirmation board is entirely up to you, but here are some suggestions to get you started. Select a medium with which you are comfortable working.

Idea 1: Make a Collage

Much like a vision board, you might do a collage of hand-drawn images, or pictures cut out of magazines or printed off the Internet. If you want to travel more, find pictures of the location you have always wanted to visit. If you want to take care of your body more, find mouth-watering images of healthy foods that will honor your body like the temple it is.

As you lay out your collage, be honest with yourself: what do you really want?

Idea 2: Make a List

"Until You Know What You Really Want to Say Yes To, You Will Continue to Say Yes to Everything Else." — Robert Holden, PhD #inspiration #yes #motivation #choices #louisehay

You might prefer to do a written list. Write down everything that you love, that makes you happy, or something that you want to bring into your life.

Louise and I have noticed that people’s first attempts at creating an affirmation board often focus on having and getting.

We encourage you to make sure your Sacred Yesses are more than just a shopping list. You might include developing a quality like courage, gratitude, or forgiveness, for instance. Maybe you want to practice a skill like meditation, yoga, painting, or cooking.

Idea 3: Create a Mind Map

Maybe you’d like to do a mind map. There are wonderful examples of mind maps on Pinterest that you can browse for ideas.

Ask yourself, “What do I want to learn?” and “What do I want to experience?” Include your favorite affirmation or a personal mantra, for instance.

Whatever you do, keep it to one page.

What Are Your Sacred Yesses?

You create your affirmation board by listening within. You are listening for your Sacred Yesses. These Sacred Yesses belong to you. They’re not your parents’ yesses or your partner’s, your children’s, or anybody else’s. They‘re not about what you should do with your life; they are about following your joy.

They affirm what you love, what you believe in, and what you cherish and value. They are about you living your truth. Find your Sacred Yesses, and you find your inner truth.

The key is to express yourself, heart and soul. To focus on being rather than doing.

Louise and I encourage you to give your affirmation board plenty of time. Express yourself. Be creative. Feel free to experiment. It’s not about getting it right. And it’s not about creating something that looks good.

If you want, you can share your board with a coach or a trusted friend. It’s good to get feedback. Maybe they will point out something that you’ve missed. Finally, make sure that your affirmation board is about what you say yes to today—right now—not someday in the future. Remember, this isn’t about chasing happiness—it is about following your joy.

As you get clearer about the Sacred Yesses of your life, you experience a sense of empowerment and grace that helps you to live a truly blessed life.

Louise Hay CBT

Using Cognitive Behaviorial Therapy (CBT)

Now that you have been medicinally and pharmacologically rewiring your body, you might as well do the same with your brain and your behavior. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can help you start to identify the thought patterns in your brain, the “what if” and “I could, but I’d rather not” thought patterns.

Exposure therapy can help stop the pattern in which you avoid more and more things in the world. This is a procedure where you use imagery and with a tremendous amount of support start to imagine past traumatic events and conceive present circumstances that remind you of them. With support, you’ll learn to desensitize your brain and body.4

It’s important, at this stage of your treatment, to tell yourself that you are a brave survivor for having come so far and that you want, paradoxically, to face new situations that might be scary and out of your comfort zone.

Holding two thought patterns that are seemingly opposite concepts (i.e., paradox) is the key to healing trauma. For example, “I love myself just the way I am” is a phrase that can be coupled with its seeming opposite, “I want to change.”

Often people who have a history of trauma and abuse have difficulty holding paradox and are prone to black-and-white thinking. So, you might say, “I’m a survivor, I’ve come this far, this is what I learned to do to feel safe.”

However, if the way you’ve learned to feel safe is by limiting your life to only one or two friends, you’ll feel less anxiety at first, but in the long run you’ll socially starve. Limiting happiness and freedom because you are panic-stricken means you are still shackled to your trauma.

That’s all right. You can love yourself where you are and want more.

How do you do that?

Dialetical behavioral therapy (DBT) helps you train your mind to handle seemingly opposite thoughts and get rid of the black-and-white thinking that escalates panic and limits your life. Dialectical behavioral therapy for many is the treatment of choice for PTSD and panic disorder.

This kind of cognitive behavioral therapy is based on Tibetan Buddhism and mindfulness. It helps you learn how to regulate panic, fear, sadness, anger, shame, and guilt. You may also want to consider hypnotherapyEMDR (stands for “eye movement desensitization and reprocessing”), and other therapies that help people alter their mind-body networks for trauma.

Other Mind-Body Medicines for Panic and PTSD

In addition to 5-HTPpassion flowerlemon balmrhodiola, and ashwagandha, you may want to consider also going to a psychopharmacologist if your panic gets out of control, for temporary medication support. But warning—try to avoid Xanax, Valium, Klonopin, and other benzodiazepines. Yes, they may help in the short term, but if you find that you’re using them for a very long term to curb anxiety and panic, you may find out, as I’ve said, that you end up getting two problems instead of one.

In addition to PTSD, you might find out you have an addiction, and then you’ll end up having to go to rehab to get off the Xanax, Valium, or Klo-nopin. Not easy.

Traditional Chinese medicine can be helpful to treat brain and body anxiety, especially after panic. Try these:

  • If you tend to get hot/cold sweats—zizyphi spinosae
  • If you tend to get shortness of breath and panic—lumbricus
  • If your blood pressure tends to be too high or you get chest symptoms—uncariae
  • If you have problems falling asleep—magnetium
  • If you have stomach distress and panic—os draconis and concha ostrea

Perimenopause and PTSD

If you’re perimenopausal, and you have symptoms of anxiety and panic from PTSD, there are a variety of other medicines. Corydalis tuber treats nervousness, agitation, insomnia, and headache. Coptidis rhizome treats nervousness, anxiety, chest pressure, hot flashes, and memory issues. Then magnolia cortexpromotes relaxation, decreases anxiety, and helps with insomnia as well as the stomach upset.

THE AFFIRMATIONS
When it comes to handling trauma, the first thing Louise does is have a person re-create it in herself and in her world. To help a person handle trauma from the past, especially childhood, she helps them create a “healthier inner child,” one with memories of safety and security. Other therapies do the same. They call it “re-parenting yourself.”

Louise’s affirmations for the inner childhelp you establish thought patterns in your brain for the child in you who saw the world as anxious and fearful.

So, before we get to those exercises, is there really a way that that could affect your brain?

Is there really a way that healing the inner child with affirmations could really rewire the injured brain circuitry of a person who has PTSD?

Quite possibly, yes.

There is a lot of science to suggest that past trauma changes the way we perceive the world. When you have trauma at a young age, the memory warps your brain circuits. Affirmations help you change the wiring.

So perhaps by doing these inner child exercises, we are implanting in our brain competing thoughts and memories that dilute or drown out traumatic ones. I don’t think you can ever remove a traumatic memory. Many wonderful, brilliant, and great people’s lives have been formed and directed by trauma.

Nelson Mandela, for one, was imprisoned for 25 years and, to say the least, was subjected to catastrophic humiliation and physical and emotional suffering that later took its toll on his physical health. And his trauma gave birth to a form of wisdom that is a revolutionary force to create peace in our society. You don’t want to remove all your traumatic memory, do you?

If you do, think again.

Erasing traumatic memory may remove sources of wisdom that could inform your future avocation or calling. Once again, try a dialectic: I, Mona Lisa, personally can understand the desire to wipe out pain and suffering in one’s past—and (notice I didn’t say “but”) I choose instead to think of all the sundry painful and traumatic events in my life as, in fact, a credential.

Many people think my best credentials are my B.A. from Brown University, my M.D. or my Ph.D. and certification in psychiatry. That may be true, and you may also agree that I’ve received wisdom in some other critical ways:

  • Scoliosis and having a rod in my spine with a fusion from my neck all the way through
  • Epilepsy and narcolepsy, where I “fall asleep,” once falling asleep while running across a bridge and getting hit by a truck and thrown 86 feet, fracturing my pelvis, ribs, and scapula and probably sustaining a brain injury
  • Bilateral invasive breast cancer with a double mastectomy and reconstruction
  • During one spinal fusion revision surgery, bleeding out on the table, taking 10 minutes to be resuscitated, and being in the ICU for two and a half weeks
  • Foot-long clot in a vein in my left hip
  • Four small bowel obstructions
  • Dyslexia and ADHD

Suffice it to say, it’s been a bit of a ride. I managed to survive, maybe even thrive, despite the fact that I have a lot of scars on my body and my brain, and yes, maybe a vulnerability in my spirit, though I wouldn’t want to admit it. I bring to you this credential. Now join me in Louise’s meditation.

In the exercise below, Louise tries to help us rewire our brains’ vision, hearing, and memory circuits by guiding us through an inner child meditation; she tries to re-create a safer and more loving world. Perhaps she is helping us rewire our amygdala and hippocampus circuits as we “re-parent” ourselves.

Inner Child Work Meditation

See your inner child. Notice how the little child looks and feels. Comfort your child.

You might apologize to your little one for having neglected it for so long and only berated it and scolded it in the past.

But now you can promise your inner child that from now on, you will always be there for it, you will never leave it alone, and whenever this child wants your comfort or advice or playtime with you, you will always be there.

You acknowledge that this relationship with your inner child is one of the most important in your life.

Tell your child how much you treasure it. Build its self-esteem and self-worth with praise.

See your child relaxed, safe, peaceful, enjoying itself, laughing, happy, playing with friends, and running free. Enjoying everything it does, school, studying, being creative, sharing with others, touching a flower, hugging a tree, picking a piece of fruit, eating with delight, playing with a puppy or a kitten, or swinging a swing high above, laughing with joy, running up to you, giving you a big hug.

See the two of you, healthy, living in a beautiful, safe place, having wonderful relationships, parents, friends, co-workers, being greeted with joy wherever you go. Having a special kind of love with a special person.

Now visualize the teenager within you, being comforted as it moves through the bewildering time of puberty that marks the transition from childhood to adulthood, building its self-esteem and self-worth.

Visualize the adult in you now with love and congratulate yourself for having come this far. You were always doing the best you could at any point in time and space.

Build your own self-esteem and self-worth. The love and acceptance you have for yourself now will make it easy to move in the next level of self-love.

You are very powerful. You have the power within you to help create the kind of world you want all of us to live in.

Louise also offers Affirmations for PTSD:

I am harmless to others and others are harmless to me. I feel safe with the young and with the old.

I feel safe with those who are like me and those who are different from me.

I feel safe with animals, I feel relaxed with animals, I live in harmony with all animals.

The weather is my friend. I am in harmony with all of life—the sun, the moon, the winds and the rain and the earth and the movement of the earth. I am at peace with the elements. I am always comfortable in any weather. My body adjusts to the outer temperature. I am at ease.

I have also learned to be tranquil. In the midst of chaos, I can be tranquil. Tranquility is inner peace.

I practice being peaceful when others are agitated. I do not have to buy into people’s agitation.

For me, peace of mind and loving myself is the most important state I can experience.

By changing my thoughts, I now create peace in my world.

Peace replaces fear, terror is replaced by tranquility, scariness becomes serenity, uncertainty becomes confidence.

Love replaces hate. Repression makes for freedom. I bless all people with love, I surround the planet with love.

Healing from PTSD, Trauma and Mind-Body Anxiety

Mind Symptoms of PTSD

  • You experienced painful emotional or physical trauma in your family growing up.
  • You’ve suffered emotional or physical trauma in one or more of your relationships.
  • There has been an event in your life in which you’ve been threatened with such serious physical or emotional harm that it would be out of the range of what we consider normal life experience.
  • Some examples might be living through war, witnessing an accident with loss of life or limb, experiencing rape or incest, or seeing your children suffer abuse.
  • Whatever the trauma you’ve experienced, you tend to have “repeat performances” of this painful pattern in one relationship after another, one job after another, and so on. The painful pattern seems to replay over and over in your life like the movie Groundhog Day.
  • You have thought patterns of terror, fright, panic, and edginess.
  • You have a feeling that you might be hurt or harmed, or that someone might reject or criticize you.
  • You believe you won’t get the help you need.
  • You feel you’re incompetent to change the situation.
  • You feel like you’re going crazy.

Body Symptoms of PTSD

In addition to the symptoms in the previous section, you may have these:

  • Trembling and shaking
  • Hot flashes and cold chills
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Nausea or a sick feeling in your stomach
  • Pressure in your chest
  • A pounding heart
  • Cold sweats
  • Shortness of breath
  • A lump in your throat
  • Dizziness and vertigo
  • Feeling like you’re “out of your body”
  • Feeling like you’re dying

You’ll find that trauma can rewire the brain, and if the above descriptions sound familiar to you, read on. You will have a whole host of solutions you can use with your health care team to create physical relief and emotional serenity.

DOLLY: ANXIETY AFTER A TRAUMATIC EXPERIENCE
Dolly, 28, came to Mona Lisa Shultz, M.D., Ph.D. because her family was concerned for her after a traumatic childhood. Here is Dr. Lisa’s account:

THE INTUITIVE READING
I saw Dolly as if she were in a house and someone was walking in and out and slamming the door. The individual in the house who seemed to be creating terror seemed to have violent mood swings, so potent that they would affect people nearby, in the same room or even on other floors of the house. It felt like Dolly’s world was threatened, and the horror of being around this person reverberated in her body.

After meeting that family, I saw that Dolly’s life seemed unstable in so many realms. Did she have a hard time making friends outside of her family? I had a hard time seeing a partner or other relationships. It didn’t seem like she could last in a job and make enough money to support herself.

THE BODY
Her head felt shaky. Her body felt shaky. Everything about Dolly’s mind and body felt nervous. Was there dizziness and vertigo in her head? I sensed a lump in her throat. It seemed that she was constantly out of breath, and her heart skipped a beat in a way that was terrifying.

"I don't blame myself." — Louise Hay #affirmations #positive #quotes #forgiveness

I could see that her digestive tract tended to look like it had butterflies in it, giving her that nauseous feeling. All the muscles in her body seemed tight, making her feel exhausted. I could see Dolly up all hours of the night trying to get to sleep.

THE FACTS
It turned out that Dolly had seen her father beat her mother on multiple occasions. His explosive temper drove away everyone except, of course, Dolly. Dolly still lived with her father because she couldn’t manage to find Mr. Right, nor could she make any job last. Her problems with focus and attention made it hard for her to finish school, and she was soon diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Dolly told me that doctors gave her antidepressants for irritability, and then they said she had bipolar disorder, the idea of which she thought was ridiculous. Dolly began to medicate away the memories of her father’s violence with alcohol and marijuana. All she wanted was to have the episodes of panic go away. She wanted the chest pounding, the choking, the trembling, the nausea all to just leave so she could start to have a happy life.

What is PTSD?

Many of us have events in our life that are traumatic. A parent dies when we’re in middle age. One of our children gets a minor illness and we’re terrified that they may not survive. A child may be diagnosed with a learning disability, or we may have a fender bender on the highway.

All of us have the resilience in our brains and bodies to bounce back; however, when we experience an event that is over the top in magnitude, such as up-close, personal experience of war, watching a loved one die, being a victim of rape or abuse, and so on, the horrific memories get laid down in our brains and bodies.

Psychiatry names this post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The most recent studies with brain scans indicate that in PTSD sufferers, the fear network is not working properly. Whether it’s revealed by PET scans or magnetic spectroscopy, we know that the elements of the network produce aberrant amounts of serotonin, GABA, or other neurotransmitters.3

If you, like the person in this case, have had serious trauma in your life, you may suffer from anxiety as well as depression and from its effects in your brain and body. First, understand that part of all life is distress.

From the moment we’re born, we cry. It’s painful. Daily all of us have one event or another that causes distress. Some amount of “stress,” pain, is necessary for us to grow and develop. Some even believe that crisis is necessary to challenge us and force us forward to accomplish greater and greater feats.

Symptoms of PTSD

Whether it’s taking our first steps or the anxiety we face on the first day of kindergarten or the first day of college, all of us have to face normal amounts of fear and other feelings so we can recruit other brain regions to adjust our thoughts and move on to the next life mission.

However, if we’ve been threatened or someone close to us has been threatened with bodily harm or sexual violence, this can be considered PTSD if four basic symptoms continue longer than a month:

  1. You keep having reverberating memories of the event in the form of dreams, images, or body reactions.
  2. You go out of your way to avoid situations that remind you of the event. This might be avoiding a highway or highways around it after you’ve had a car accident, or avoiding the sounds of airports if you’ve seen a helicopter crash, and so on. You avoid situations where you hear, see, or sense reminders of the trauma.
  3. You have changes in how your thoughts work, your mood functions, and your body functions after the event. Your memory is like a fog. You can’t remember events. You may feel like you’re out of your body, you dissociate, and as a result you may have a distorted memory of events. You may either blame yourself or you blame the world. You may start to withdraw from activities. You may feel numb or detached from loved ones. And somehow, that overall dulling in your brain makes it hard for you to experience love, joy, and satisfaction.
  4. Last but not least, your body remains keyed up after the trauma with norepinephrine, that adrenal gland stress hormone, which causes you to be jumpy, reactive, and hypervigilant; your muscles will tighten, and you’ll get exhausted. This also makes it hard for you to focus, pay attention, and, yes, fall asleep. Your jumpiness and moodiness may make you more likely to have anger outbursts, causing problems with your relationships, your job, or your functioning as a whole.

The symptoms of panic with PTSD are not the most paralyzing consequence. What is the most paralyzing consequence is you restrict your life. You start to avoid things that remind you of the trauma.

The circle of avoidance gets greater and greater and greater and greater. Those highways you started to avoid after the accident start to become back roads as well, until you stop driving completely. Hearing traffic noises may bother you, at which time you start closing the windows in your house and just don’t want to listen to any kind of car at all. You may stay home more and more.

When people start to tell you, “Hey, listen, you’re getting more and more restricted in your life,” you’ll say, “Well, I could do more, but I’d rather not.” You start to think, What would happen if? Well, I could go in a car, but what if an accident happens? A minority of people, 5 percent, actually end up unable to leave their homes, a homebound situation called agoraphobia.

PTSD Treatments

If you have suffered from a serious traumain your life that affects your mind and body, these solutions can help you support your brain and body as you heal the past and create a healthier mind-body for greater happiness in the present and the future.

When it comes to suffering from panic after a trauma, it’s important to look at all the medical conditions that could make your anxiety, nervousness, and twitchiness worse.

Have a physician check out your thyroid, your blood sugar, your calcium, and your adrenal gland. HyperthyroidismCushing’s syndrome (excessive cortisol or adrenal gland exhaustion), and a parathyroid gland problem can all mimic or worsen panic attacks.

Go to a cardiologist and have an EKG to check out your heart rhythm.

If you have symptoms of dizzinessvertigo, and feeling “out of your body,” go to a neurologist to make sure you aren’t also having a brain wave problem.

Go to an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctor to make sure your middle ear isn’t also causing some symptom.

Notice I’m not saying that if you treat these physical health problems, your panic will completely go away.

Traumatic experience may increase your chance toward having all of these disorders, so it’s important to treat both the physical problems and the emotional distress.

While you’re at it, make sure that your shortness of breath isn’t made worse by allergies or asthma.

Have a trusted coach, counselor, or nutritionist go over your diet to make sure that medicine, supplements, or foods aren’t making your panic worse, especially caffeine and alcohol, not to mention cocaine and marijuana.

You might say, “Marijuana? How could that possibly make my panic worse?

Well, it may make you calm at first, but over time it will make your brain foggier in terms of attention and memory. It’s called “borrowing from Peter to pay Paul.”

Using marijuana may calm your nerves but mess up your attention; using alcohol can help you fall asleep, but you’ll end up feeling more depressed. It’s important to work with a trusted practitioner to balance your psychopharmacology so that the things you’re doing to self-medicate your panic aren’t making your brain and body worse.

Every day I wake up refreshed, ready to go, and full of motivation
Being motivated and driven is a natural part of who I am
Being motivated and ambitious is a part of life I enjoy
Getting myself in the right state of mind and motivated comes naturally to me
Firing myself up and becoming motivated comes naturally
Feeling motivated, energized and on fire is normal for me
Motivation, energy, drive, and passion are part of my daily life
