Emotional Guidance Scale

This is the scale Dr. V was talking about on the call today. 

Imagine an Emotional Guidance Scale with the good feeling thoughts on one end and the bad feeling thoughts on the other. 
And now, acknowledge that the end that feels good equals allowing and the end that feels bad equals resistance.  
So it is obvious that, depending upon your choice of thoughts, you could move toward either end of the scale.  
It is also obvious that the further you are from one end of the scale,  the closer you are to the other end.  In other words, this thought feels better; this thought feels worse.  This better feeling thought indicates allowing; this worse feeling thought indicates resistance............ The thing that matters most is that you consciously reach for a feeling that is improved.  The word for this feeling is not important.  

A scale of your emotions would look like this:

 1. Joy/Knowledge/Empowerment/Freedom/Love/Appreciation 
 2. Passion 3. Enthusiasm/Eagerness/Happiness 
 4. Positive Expectation/Belief 
 5. Optimism 6. Hopefulness 
 7. Contentment 
 8. Boredom 
 9. Pessimism 
 10. Frustration/Irritation/Impatience 
 11." Overwhelment" 
 12. Disappointment 
 13. Doubt 
 14. Worry 
 15. Blame 
 16. Discouragement 
 17. Anger 
 18. Revenge 
 19. Hatred/Rage 
 20. Jealousy 
 21. Insecurity/Guilt/Unworthiness 
 22. Fear/Grief/Depression/Powerlessness 

 A rather effective way of balancing your Energy is to continually reach for feelings of relief.  A feeling of relief always indicates an improvement in your vibration, and it always means a release of resistance, or an increasing of allowing.   Illness is all about resistance on some level.   You have been resisting your Natural Well Being up to NOW.

This is from Abraham-Hicks.

FREE Conference Call Every Wednesday

**Please note the new dial in phone number and access code below.

Dr. Vinayak and I have been doing these conference calls for emotional support every Wednesday @ 1pm Pacific Time (4pm EST).  This is my way of giving back to the Lyme community for helping me with donations and support throughout my struggle with the disease.  Anyone struggling with illness is welcome to join as this is not centered around Lyme.  This is centered on recovery and releasing your "temporary" conditions and letting go.

I missed last weeks call and really think I needed it.  It keeps me in line mentally with what I believe to be true about healing.  Healing can begin with healing our emotions and not focusing on our symptoms.  

Free Conference Call
NEW Conference Dial-in Number: 619-326-2700
Participant Access Code: 9758596#

IMPORTANT:  Please press press the *6 keys once you are signed into the call.  This will mute your phone.  Thanks!   And please try to call in a few minutes early as we will begin at 1pm PST / 4pm EST. 

Feel free to just call in and listen or ask Dr. Vinayak for emotional support for something specific.  If you would like to remain anonymous, feel free to use a fictitious name. 

To listen to previously recorded phone conferences, click HERE.  Make sure you are listening to it through Internet Explorer!

Tomorrow on Dr. Phil

Set your DVR's!  Tomorrow on Dr. Phil there will be a segment on chronic Lyme disease.  

Tomorrow on Dr. Phil Friday - April 13, 2012

Deadly Consequences

Dr. Phil’s guests say they’re dealing with serious illnesses that could have deadly outcomes. First, Annette says as a mother, she wants the right to euthanize her severely-disabled children, 42-year-old Jeffrey and 43-year-old Janet, who have been institutionalized for more than three decades with the rare genetic disorder, Sanfilippo Syndrome. Her only legal option is to remove their feeding tubes, which she says would lead to a painful and inhumane death. What would you do? Hear from acclaimed trial attorney Geoffrey Fieger on why he thinks the laws against euthanasia should be changed. Then, former model Stephanie Vostry, 25, says that she suffers from constant pain and seizures caused by what some doctors believe to be chronic Lyme disease, and others wonder if she's faking. With natural medicine providing minimal relief, hear how she says she's turned to self-medicating to dull her pain. Plus, chronic Lyme disease hits close to home for a Dr. Phil staff member and a San Diego weathercaster. 

The trailer for the show is below and then another snippet is below that.

Update on ME

I am still doing pretty darn great!  Working on getting even better.  Just wanted to let people know.  I don't think about Lyme disease so much anymore so I don't think to blog often.  So hearing nothing from me is a good thing.  I have more good days than bad now (THANK GOD)!!  I just need to exercise more!!!!  Trying to find the energy (sometimes just mental) some days and wish I had an exercise partner!  2 of my dogs are gimpy right now (chihuahua needs knee surgery and doberman pulled something playing ball).  My other dog is old so he just lays around.  Maybe I'll meet a fun friend that wants to exercise with me!  When the weather is nice I'm more motivated.

Anyway, life is good.  See ya Wednesdays on the conference calls!!

P.S.  A lot of you have left me wonderful comments of encouragement, your stories, etc over the years.  My comments only show up if you do it through Disquis for some reason.  I can't figure out how to fix it.  So if you wonder why your comments don't show up, that is why!!  I'm sorry!  I do get to read them though and I do appreciate them very much.  I hope I can get it fixed and I can respond to everyone.
