Intense Times? The Breakthrough Series, Part 1

Breakups to breakdowns to breakthroughs…. when our world feels like it’s falling apart, what if it’s crashing to come together in a whole new way?  What if the answer to our prayers comes not only in happiness, yet also in hardship? When life brings us to our knees, for the humbled, it can be an opportunity to disintegrate and dissolve what’s no longer working, rebirth, and find new footing. Not to mention the myriad of opportunities for sharpening awareness. The willingness to let go, allow life to break us down, and simply not know – is a labor of love and invitation to birth the new – and breakthrough.

Beyond the potential risk and pitfall of getting stuck in unresolved patterns, life’s intensities can be a form of medicine, an opportunity to feel, heal, discover and resuscitate secret dreams, and ultimately repair relationships – primarily the one within.

Once the shock has been absorbed, and we’ve gotten past the initial stages of hurt – what if the intensities and sharp-edges also serve as blows to the beliefs that tell us we aren’t good enough, or worthy on some level? Perhaps it’s simply more opportunities to love ourself that much more, no matter what. If not for the Great Pain Penetrator, we may have little reason to de-armor, feel our own fragility and vulnerability; question what we’re doing and what may seem like a nice normal life.  Breaking out of the status quo, another world awaits.  Creating your world to your greatest liking, what does it look like?

Like spring storms bring summer, and weeding a garden most often brings bounty, there can be many perils in the quest for pearls.  Going for what we really want, is an invitation to inquiry. It asks us to adventure into our own (inner) work.  “Whether by hook or by crook”, force or acts of nature, the opportunity for success is present within every failure.  Receiving the blows as gifts, and breathing into sucker-punches, may be the difference between feeling stuck, and breaking through.  The willingness to feel it all, not know, dig deep inside – and ultimately persist, no matter the fumbling we face – is to receive and rise from every failing and fall, and every disaster, and every loss.

When the central pillar of your life, or the very ground you stand upon crumbles or collapses – how do you handle lives inevitable foibles?

Though I don’t always want to embrace – or feel – what comes with unavoidable change, there’s another part of me welcoming transformation. The part that’s patiently inviting me to know myself better, like a inquisitive child always interested to play.  You know that part, yes?

I happened to be on day 11 of a juice fast when I got the news of my fathers’ sudden death last month.  My belly was so very constricted with emotion, eating was out of the question for almost a week after.  I was so thankful to be fasting.  It’s as if a part of me knew, and was preparing.  Not only for his passing, yet also for the receiving that I had no idea death also brings.  Integrating these very deep intensities is the place from which I now write you.  Breathing a bit deeper a few weeks later, I’m in awe of how emotions and experiences shape, shift, and change us.

As of late, one of the biggest messages I receive is to let go of the agenda(s) that typically dictate my day, and just receive.  Stop working so hard in hopes of aim, out of blind ambition, and the patterns that fuel such behavior, and yes, just receive. To receive, I’m asked to feel.  Everything. All of me… the broken bits, what I push away, and the Greater Wholeness that’s undisturbed, no matter the surface flaps. I’m comforted to be reminded of the stillness in the calm inner depths within.  Making time and space for receiving is easy slack-jawed… stunned, there’s been nothing else I could do really.  Though as I reintegrate a new reality each day, I (re)learn how crucial a life of practice is for wellbeing…. and to keep making space for it, for receiving. For me this means daily meditation, yoga/exercise often, breathing, fasting, clean eating, and a creative loving life.  What does it mean for you?

Dear friend, much like my own process, may the inquiry open you to receiving in a whole new way.  You too have probably worked hard enough in one form or another.  May it be light, with receiving serving you.

My love to you..

P.S. I will be writing you again soon this month with part 2 of The Breakthrough Series.

Faith, Forgiveness, Trust & Bali – Part 2

mayur-gala-487

Hello My Friend,

I thought it had been an intense month… wow – it could only prepare me for what was to come. How about you?

Every beginning has an end, and every end has a beginning – like seasons start to stop, to cycle yet again.  Birth eventually meets death, and another life springs forth in its wake. Buds blossom, ripen, return to seed, to bloom yet again.

Since I last wrote you, my father suddenly passed away at 85.  A proud and noble man, suffering wasn’t his style.  His sudden passing couldn’t prepare us for the shock that’s still present a week later in echoes of disbelief. Easter Sunday he went to church fine, and died from congestive heart failure within 24 hours.

What’s left is deep surrender, and the gifts he continues to bestow.  His heart was/is enormous, and continues to give.  While grief underlies, his big love lingers and offshoots.  Just like him to set it up this way, makes me smile, Dad was always joking around and cheeky. Receiving his generosity of spirit lightens the load, and brightens my perspective.  His ability to turn weighty issues into something to learn from and laugh at, kept us from cracking to bits in life – and in his death.  His greater faith, and consistent daily prayers at the crack of dawn were never missed.

Whatever you’re experiencing – is life asking you to trust, have faith, and forgive yourself and others?  If so, how are you experiencing these gifts? Amazing how death teaches us to live, reconcile, and resolve what makes us dead to life – now.  It reminds me, why not live now, fully?  Though his soul knew, he surely didn’t expect to die so suddenly.

Perhaps Life can actually be trusted, and all else is just a bad habit that can be reeducated and retrained?  Unmanaged, distrust in self and life degrades health and well being, and erodes growth and goodness.  Indulged, that place only steals like a vampire, and sucks us dry – perhaps this is the ultimate Grim Reaper.

In my experience, witnessing and being willing to feel fear, while minding the gaps, with heavy doses of self-forgiveness is key.  Worry has less stronghold and I can receive the bigness, miracles, and magic that exist beyond the myopic smallness that fear immobilizes me in. What do constructs of the mind mean on our death bed?  May we live now, and not assume tomorrow.

Here are some things that help me with faith, forgiveness, trust – and Bali, or wherever this world traveler finds herself (now en route from the US to Spain)…

  1. The less I react, the more opportunity I have to respond (or be responsible)… this really help.  Developing the witness is a great tool! BOS (breathe, observe, surrender).

  2. Stepping outside of emotions, my own and others (especially people I’m closest too), keeps things in perspective.  Choosing to step off the emotional rollercoaster, breathing instead – gives us each space to feel our own feelings – and keep things from getting blown out of proportion.

  3. Take nothing personally.  It’s not about you.

  4. Trust we’re all doing our very best.

  5. Doing biz in a foreign country (or for many of us in general), I cross-check sources of info, and take full responsibility to educate myself… and do what’s necessary to develop.

  6. Make a conscious choice to face and feel fear and worry, rather than getting too comfortable with them as habit and coping mechanisms.  Be willing to feel discomfort!

  7. Fall back on faith in self, especially when in doubt.

  8. Be quick to forgive, life is short.

  9. Keep trusting the Bigger Picture of life…. like a teabag inscription says:  “that which makes the planets rotate can take care of your daily routine.”

  10. Love myself anyway… no matter what.

  11. Paradise is a state of mind, more than a place.

  12. Reacting is optional, what’s are the other choices?

Fear to freedom, faith to forgiveness – energy goes where attention flows.  Stress or faith, trust or suspicion, expansion or contraction – each are a matter of choice.  Indeed a cycle ensues, wherever we concentrate our focus.  They end to begin again.  Like seasons.  Where does one stand in a moving mandala that seemingly never stops – or starts?  From the center point of course, smack in the middle, where homeostasis neither begs nor borrows… it just hangs out in equanimity, steady, grounded, stable.  What a comfort to remember fear, anxiety, and panic are optional.  We can simply make other choices, like deciding you’d rather have apples over oranges.  May we try try again, until we break patterns of suffering, and instead create conscious change – because we posses the power of choice.

Thank you for reading.

Much Love,

Dr. Amy

Faith, Forgiveness, Trust & Bali

Dearest Reader,

It’s been a very intense past month or so, how about you?

“No more, I just don’t have the bandwidth for more third world bleeding and bureaucracy.”  Anthony emphatically tells me as we enter the next level of doing business on Bali.  It took over a year and a hefty lump of finance, though we now have a brand new legal machinery that’s akin to a running a complex Ferrari – we actually thought we bought a simple Toyota.

There’s a part of me that wants to save him from the bleed by taking on the bureaucracy. Then there’s the part of him that wants to save me from operating outside my league – in an arena where sharks and snakes extort – then eat foreigners for lunch.

I learn that fulfilling dreams can often mean not only encountering magic and miracles along the way, yet also demons and dragons.  Walking in an enchanted forest filled with fairies and feathered friends; it could be easy to ignore the forces that reinforce your biggest fears.   It teaches me to keep fully switched on, relaxed, though no dozing off.  Landscapes – beyond ideals – are mutable. Surely if the learning curve doesn’t kill you, it makes you stronger.

Are you going for your dreams – or dreaming of them – though faced with what keeps you from fully living them?  Do the stakes seem as high as your passion?  Yes my friend, I can relate, and write you from as much trepidation, as determination.

Just when we’re about to crack, break under the weight of it all, or what we perceive our burdens to be – coming up for air – we may find suffering is often optional. Buried and blinded by what we’ve made bigger, shackled to unconscious commitments and reactivity, our choices narrow and become accompanied by “I have to”, “I have no choice”, “I’m trapped”, and “There’s not enough for me.”

My….  the stories we tell ourselves. One of mine has been the bitchy bad cop. On guard for yet another rip off or deception that confirms my suspicions (especially in regards to doing business on Bali).  Just the other day, I heard the voice inside reminding me that this painful behavior is optional… oh right, I don’t “have to” police and patrol.  There are other ways to more appropriately protect and grow our investment without feeling horrible, and enacting old fear patterns.

Do you tell yourself stories that keep the hamster going around the wheel?  You know the ones that keep you outside your dream in repetitious “have-to’s”?

Aside from quagmires and conundrums, there’s yet another voice inside that reminds me to step out of story and witness, and forgive my own flailing, fallibility, and humanness. Just forgive myself in general.  Including insecurities, stories, perfectionism, and constructs. We do it to ourselves, and can undo it to.

Listening to this kinder and wiser voice, it calms and quiets me.  It asks me to be aware of where I put my attention, and invest in trusting The Bigger Picture.  Beyond scraping and scratching, worry and obsessing – is spaciousness – and faith lived in our Deeper Undisturbed Self.

Part 2 to come soon….

Much Love,

Dr. Amy

Getting Menstrual Cycle Back

Student: Hi Amy, It’s been a while.. I hope you have settled well back to NYC as well as enjoyed your time in Ibiza. What a wonderful place to discover.

I’ve been thinking of you lots lately and if you were still in Bali, would’ve tried to come to see you. 

My partner and I got married in August which was extremely special. In November we decided we would start trying to have a baby. However, ever since I have no longer got my periods (used to always be regular and had already come out of a pill 3 years ago).

Nothing else in my life has changed – I’ve been on the same roughly 70% raw food diet, eating gluten, dairy or sugar very rarely (meat hardly ever). Alcohol sometimes but not more than before. And in general I’ve been very healthy with regular yoga practices, not too stressed at work, sleeping well. I haven’t been sick for two years except this Christmas, when I had high fewer and was sick for a few days. I’ve been doing 3 x 4-5 day juice cleanses per year, last one in November. 

If you have any tips regarding nutrition or what to focus on that could help getting my periods back again, or any other comments, I would really appreciate hearing from you.

With love..
Dr. Amy:  Nice to hear from you!  Lovely!

I’m so happy for you – how wonderful you got married and now wanting to have a child, gives me goose bumps!!!
I will be in Bali for about 6 weeks, starting next week – so if you can come then, you’re very welcome!!!
It’s very common on the healthy eating/lifestyle/detox path that at a certain point, often a few years into it – that you’re period may stop.  Often stress is a part of it – though, in your case, you haven’t had stress really, and it sounds like not so many variable have changed in your life… though clearly your body is giving you  signs of something else.
Here’s my general take on what’s happening with you….  Any shift in diet/detox – whether for the more healthy, or less – can cause the channels of elimination to shift.  For us as women, this can also be with our menstrual  cycle – SUPER common.  I’ve seen women not bleed for up to 2 years even.  In essence, when my sense it that
your blood/elimination flow is congested basically.  Instead of the blood thinning (from the womb lining), as it will with time, once your body adjusts and stabilizes – the blood actually coagulates from slow circulation in the womb… We can see this as a natural to the body no longer needing to over compensate for oxygen to the womb being slowed
by a heavier diet… oxygen/circulation is increasing, though we’ll experience it in the beginning (years even) sometimes as a very heavy flow, or if so thick – it may even stop the flow, and at the same time our hormones may go a bit tweaky (our of balance).  I encourage you to keep doing what you’re doing with all your healthy practices, keep patient and listening to your body – and balance will return, and you will bleed again.  The blood may come as very thick, dark (or even black), and even smell very strong.  This is all the old back up your womb has been accumulating for a very long time – not just since your cycle stopped.  It may also be spotty to start.  After a few months, and once any heavy bleeding has past (and even very heavy cramping for some) – once your womb has sufficiently cleansed itself – you’ll likely no longer have intense cramps and pain, the
blood will flow with ease and not too much – or too little. It will be bright red, and have little to no smell.  After many years of being on this path, your cycle may go down to just 2-3 days, and be just an absolute joy and pleasure – as we celebrate the absolute beauty
and privileged of being a woman, and what that means – with our cycle being representative of that.  It’s no longer a burden or irregular…
All of those state indicate an imbalance in a woman’s body… that you’re now experiencing with it stopping.  Just continue, and know it will return.  The more tuned in you are to your womb, ovaries, and being the woman you are – the better… the great beauty, lesson, and
benefit of what you’re experiencing – is the return to being aware of yourself as a woman, and all the treasure that comes with it – so long as we understand ourselves, and our cycle as an indicator to self/health awareness. Here’s an exercise to help you with that… it works  wonders.  I had clients who haven’t bleed in some time, begin right away:

1.  Get into a quiet meditative place, where you won’t be interrupted.

2.  Place one hand on your heart center, and tune into it.. then drop your attention down
into your ovaries, and place the other hand on that area.
3.  Feel your heart and ovaries/womb and tubes all connected together.  Breathe into them, letting go, and surrendering your awareness unto your female organs, and heart center (the thymus gland, located in the center of your chest).
4.  Now place both hands onto your ovaries.  Keep breathing into them, out from them.
5.  Drop your ears into your ovaries… listen to them, what are they telling you? Listen closely to your female organs.  Allow all sensations, feelings, thought, and messages to surface… just listening. If it brings emotion, allow yourself to fully feel them. If tears come, or any feeling – give it space, attention, allowance, and complete acceptance.
6.  Once you feel clear… begin to rotate your ovaries counter clock-wise, with your awareness.  Like you’re opening a jar.  Imagine them opening, softening, and coming to life.  Keep listening to them, feeling, and experiencing them.
7.  Keep with this for at least 5 minutes… give this process as much time as you can, each morning when you wake up (or morning time), and before going to sleep (or evening time)… keep with this practice consistently, feeling how it may affect your ovaries, how you feel, while welcoming your menstrual flow.
Consistency is key! Keep with it!  Relax into it, listen closely to your female organs, and what it feels like to be a woman.  Enjoy!!!  This is your birthright – to be closely connected with yourself, and female organs.  Get to know how much “power’ you have with your body… it only does what the mind tells it to. May this be a conscious process that allows you to fully connect with yourself. Often we lose our cycle because we’ve lost connection to ourselves as a woman.  Welcome your tenderness, sensitivity, feelings – and all you are. May you in-joy yourself fully.
Let me know how it goes!!!
Much love!

Feb. News, Why Believe In Love? 9 Reasons

Why Believe In Love?

Why believe in love, anything, or anyone really?

What’s the significance of belief and how it drives us? What we believe in gives value, validity, and weight to what we deem important, and how we direct our lives. Without it, we may feel stuck, stagnate, and otherwise impaired. Yet with some beliefs, we may be impaled by what we’ve inherited, what we’re conditioned by, or what’s been imposed upon us – and ultimately what we may have bought into.

In a modern day world of quick fixes, fast solutions, and snake oils – it’s no wonder we may not believe in love – or much of anything, and even be cynical and bitter. This is understandable, yet potentially fatal when it comes to the most important belief of all… some say that’s the belief in self. Perhaps what believing in oneself truly means is beyond beliefs, and it really means knowing self? Is knowing self/self-love the turning point in not only our personal growth, yet also in our collective human evolution?   Thinking, feeling, and acting from a deeper state of inner reflection – rather than what’s popularized and in politics – surely sets a different stage, that the drama we may find in our lives, and in mass culture.

What’s beyond belief then? For me, consistent connection to the ever shifting and changing inner terrain within that listening to my body and inner voice reveals. Devoted to, this place of mystery offers me fresh insights that my unconscious beliefs tend to defend with rigidity, rights and wrongs. For example, if my lover and I have a fight, I can continue to project my views onto him, insisting he is judging me. Just last night this happened. Sitting with it, I realized I was judging myself for not being able to keep up with my personal ideals of perfectionism. If I continue to defend this place of projection, we only fight and feel distrust towards each other. In reality, softening my self-ideals, accepting and loving myself anyway – well, we not only get along better – yet also a part of me is deeply healing. Who can keep up with perfectionism? There’s little love there.

Thank goodness for that little voice inside. It’s constantly drawing me back within to listen, and trust love.

Here are 9 reasons why to “believe” in love:

  1. Belief can lead to knowing with ample time for self-reflection, inner listening, following that little voice inside – and loving self as first priority.
  2. If I don’t believe in love, do I believe in myself?
  3. Love generated from within isn’t contingent on anyone else… it never goes away, dies, or changes… it’s the one thing we can always count on.
  4. Holding out for true love is easier on us than choosing the opposite, or settling for compromised shades of what may appear to be love.
  5. Love asks us to dig deep. It sets the priority and precedent for all other positive values such as honesty, integrity, and kindness.
  6. Love never losses. Even if we are faced with challenging choices, if love is the determining bottom line factor, even if it hurts – we win in the long run.
  7. It’s where good things grow from, and where we can find comfort and solace… love is where truth lives.
  8. Real love sets us free… otherwise, bound is the captor of “love.”
  9. Love is the place of magic, miracles and healing – where the inexplicable is born, and where the sacred is sanctified.

Happy Valentines Beloveds! May we free ourselves to love… beyond belief.

Much Love,

Dr. Amy

Feeling Bloated

Student:

Hi Amy, 

I feel really bloated now.

This is my second day of liquid only consisting:

1 lemon juice

2 green juice

1 coconut water

1 coconut mylk (flesh+water+strained)

1 turmeric lemonade with stevia

I’ve started fasting since 16-19 January consisting lemon, green juice, coconut smoothie/mylk, and 1 salad. 

The first 2 days I still had cooked food: flourless wheat and other wrap (containing gluten) around my salad. Only 3rd and 4th day I was on fully raw.

Stevia has always been my best friend since Bali retreat.

It’s only been 2 days I’ve been properly following the good food combining chart. The first 2 days of fasting I had seeds, nuts, and coconut oil in my dressings, which according to the chart you have sent it is poorly combined.

I had Enema on Thursday evening, yesterday evening, and today afternoon, after the building of bloating feeling getting bigger and bigger. I had a thorough flushing anally through enema since Thursday, yesterday, and today. It was gradually cleansed with lots of debris stored junks that today on my last flush it was the clearest, felt really great flushing and releasing.

Then I felt really weak. 

I had my green juice straight away. 

I’m sensitive with kombucha and other fermented or containing alcohol probiotic. So I had my prebiotic Jerusalem artichokes which I have early in the morning normally. Then I had my coconut mylk 1 hour after green juice. Then 1 hour after followed by a cooked vegan strained broth of tomato, onion, and carrot, I felt a need of something soothing and I can’t take the weakness. I slept it over afternoon and it didn’t go away. Instead I had vegan broth above blended and strained, salted a pinch one.

Im gonna do a mediatation and breathwork now.

I feel like I need a massage. But my normal Friend who have given great energetic Thai Massage was busy. So I have to wait til this coming week.

I had my dry skin brush and scrubbing superfood on Tuesday and today.

I feel really bloating now.

Please advice.

Thank you.

Dr. Amy:
Thanks for writing.
I highly recommend getting a colonic asap.  Enemas are great, and important when
we don’t have access to colonics.  Though, they aren’t anywhere near as thorough
as a colonic.
It sounds like you have so much stored waste and gas loosened – though again, back to
the perastalisis muscle not being toned enough yet to eliminate to the same ratio it’s actually ready to come out.  With this loose waste is likely some compacted old poo and mucous that also contribute to the blockage – which creates bloating.  If you get on the colonic tube, you’ll likely dump MASSIVELY!   It’s imperative to do this asap!  The longer it sits there bloated out, the more it recycles back into your blood stream. This is why you feel so weak.  You really need to get that stagnate poison out of your body, and you will feel SOOOOO much better. Your body will then be able to uptake nutrition properly, which will also give you energy.  Enemas just aren’t thorough enough for this type of bloating.
You will feel a significant difference with just one good session, though it will take likely about 3-5, continuing to fast – until your body and thoroughly eliminated.
It’s very important to not break your fast until you’ve gotten the waste out.  That would be counter productive. You’re doing excellent work, and your body is responding very well ….. it’s doing exactly what it’s designed to do.  Over time, with continued fasting and staying off the other types of food, our perastalisis with strengthen. It will take some time, with exactly what your doing.
So – I highly suggest continuing your fast for at least 3-5 days more, with the same amount of colonic sessions.  It will likely be life-changing for you. You’re very ready!!!
One more thing, in your email you said – “I can’t take the weakness”…. I’d like to encourage you to shift your thinking about this.  I understand its challenging to feel weak with so much toxicity passing through your body.  This is when your body and being need your attention the most.  To be willing to feel the weakness, and take good care of yourself, is different that reacting to it with rejection, and not wanting to go there. Naturally we don’t want to go there. Though – what if there are messages for you there?  What
if you have an opportunity to slow down, replace the word weakness with the thought “wow, thank you body, I feel you’re passing massive toxicity now, I honor you, and am allowing myself to feel this both in my body, and what it feels like emotionally.”  What does feeling weak bring up for you?
May you allow yourself to feel all these feelings, honor them, and take good care of yourself… all the while following the colonic sessions as suggested.  I promise you’re going to feel like a different person in a weeks time.
Most important is to stick with it, allow it to pass, use your circulation practices as you’ve learned… and REST.
It takes much energy to detox the old poison out.  So please take the pressure of yourself, be with the feeling, COLONICS (and yes its important that many sessions), and continue.  Getting in the sauna will also greatly help!
Much love dear heart.

Dr. Amy: Home remedies can be a shot in the dark without proper diagnosis.
 
You may (or may not), have a parasite. If you do, it may be a general garden variety type that’s typically easy to eliminate with MMS and fasting correctly. With more dangerous type of parasites such as ehystolitica, it’s crucial to have accurate diagnosis. Keep in mind that obtaining this, from even the best of well-intended doctors, is almost always inaccurate due to the lack of thorough testing, lab testing for a wide range of species, and targeted accurate treatment. The only specialist I know of in the world who I trust to diagnosis – at least 95% accurate – is Dr. Kevin Cahill in New York City. Dr. Cahill says general stool tests are 70% inaccurate, even the hot stool test is said to not be highly accurate.
 
So – before you apply random home testing, I strongly recommend that you know what you’re dealing with. It’s worth a trip to NYC for this, especially if you’ve changed your diet and lifestyle, though you’re still not getting truly better. Or for anyone who just simply doesn’t get well, and their health rapidly declines. Very
often a dangerous parasite is at the root of such conditions, and illnesses. Unfortunately, accurate testing is difficult to come by.
 
Bless all your efforts! You have basic knowledge to eliminate common bacteria from your system dear, this is the place to start. If it isn’t working, best to see the worlds parasite specialist… Dr. Cahill. Especially because you’ve traveled extensively in 3rd world countries. Though, even people who haven’t left 1st world countries often have them… when you’ve been especially to India, it’s almost certain you’re a host.
 
Keep with it. I know it isn’t always easy when you’re tired all the time, yet there are solutions for those who apply themselves with a focused effort. It takes that, as pathogens and parasites are not easily eliminated. You’ve got to really want to take your body back – from basically the natural process of decay. Standing up for your life is what it takes now, otherwise, they may be given an unconscious permission to literally eat you up.
