Scar Healing

Posted by Joanna Rubini on

I've written before about scar healing, but my attention was largely towards the spiritual and emotional. But as I am a believer along the teachings of Drs. Joe Dispenza and Bruce Lipton, I believe the physical manifestation of trauma can also heal, because of our capacity to heal emotionally/spiritually.  Again, I reiterate my belief that physical healing is not so much the stitching up of tissues after trauma, as it is the restoration of balance and harmony after trauma, due to our personal work to understand, accept, and love ourselves...pre, during, and post trauma. The biggest physically sustained trauma I've...

Adulthood Neuroplasticity

Posted by Joanna Rubini on

I listened to a glorious interview the other day from one of my favorite scientific podcasters Dr. Andrew Huberman who was interviewing Dr. Alia Crum. The interview is here.  It was glorious because they are both extremely well educated professors at Stanford University that at least appear to be approachable and human, and she gave the simplest (for me) to grasp guidance I've ever heard for understanding and gently steering my own behavior. She repeated what I've heard before and already understand- that if we have a reaction to (aka if we are triggered by) something, that indicates we have a...

Arriving at Healed

Posted by Joanna Rubini on

We are not all seekers, but if you are reading this, you are at least curious about our existence. Seeker: one that looks deeper inside, deeper outside, of self, for meaning, understanding and ultimately, ascension to some holy state of existence. I keep looking, reading, studying, so that I finally, FINALLY, get it! I read a passage the other day from Anthony De Mello...to the effect of "you have arrived, you are here, you are perfect. The holy state you seek is now."  WHAT?  Where are the fire works, the visions, the hidden coming out to the apparent? That's it?!  Now I...

The Power of Suggestion in Healing, in Life, in Love: "I Am..."

Posted by Joanna Rubini on

We are all story tellers:  "I am good at this, I am deficient at that. I excel at this, I am impaired doing that. I am enjoying this, I am bored with that." All of our talk- which is largely happening inside of our brains and not even being spoken aloud- directs our ship. What is our ship? Our bodies. So our thoughts and talk are, however subtle, the blue print for the plan and the directions for the voyage.  For example, I have a family member who struggles with sub-optimal oxygen absorption, aka less than ideal lung function. I can hear her:...

Fear, Kidneys and Self Compassion

Posted by Joanna Rubini on

Have you ever gotten that mid back side ache? On either side of your spine? If you look at images of our human anatomy, you see that our kidneys are there, midway down the back, like a side ache.  Kidney's help us digest animal protein, they also help us digest or 'acknowledge' our fear, per Traditional Chinese Medicine. Fear is pretty normal for most creatures- I wonder if sharks are fearless? Or orcas? So if fear is normal to experience, and thus not 'wrong' why would our bodies signal it's presence to us? Just like every other  unconscious emotion or...
