Fear Less

“You cannot play great music until your heart has been broken.”

I think this is a wonderful digital magazine and website, Fear.Less, which I’ve been sharing with friends. And it’s all free (download June’s issue, HERE). There are some fantastic stories of upliftment and encouragement through trials and tribulations the contributors to the magazine have overcome.

People new to the practice often ask me whether I’m some kind of counsellor or whether there is psychology involved in the process. I say no, but there’s always psychology involved and it’s probably one of the most fundamental factors in dealing with psychosocial health and moving forward with life. And when you’ve been through enough grief, change and trauma in your own life, coupled with getting help from others along the way to deal with it, one generally has a tip to pass along.

Autosuggestion, as a principle cause of nervous system interference, was a term the founder of chiropractic came up with over 100 years ago. For all that time ago: pure genius, in my opinion. Negative reverberations throughout the system have a profound influence on how it functions and will ultimately determine the fate of one’s health. Thoughts become things!

Another term for placebo is positive mind-body interaction, and if your health care provider is not using it, understanding it, embracing it… they’re behind the 8-ball. We made it through the 90s, people, get with the times. For more click on Mental Wellness.

Understanding autosuggestion is pivotal to helping people move forward and that’s why I like Fear.Less. For example in this post they write: “Get over it is horrible, selfish advice and a shortcut to thinking. I think blunt suggestions are attempts by the suggestor to secretly reassure himself of his own security. I think harshness without hope is a waste of time. It’s not manly, it’s not strong and independent, it’s asinine.”

How many times have you heard someone say, “get over it”? It doesn’t work that way and can be very hollow advice. There are a myriad of neuropsychosocial dynamics to “getting over” something like personality type, past experiences, coping mechanisms and support networks. People need the right kind of love and support for the length of time they personally require and this website is a great addition to help keep you on the rails, having faith that eventually you will reach the station.
