COVID-19, Rethinking the Implausible

 squaring-the-circle.png

The piece explores the most "out there" idea that we have some intentional, mental control over molecules. What could this even mean?

To explore this, I go back to what we know about molecules, the mind, and how we might use one to affect the other. Obviously we do this, but how and what we accomplish is hard to define. That is the "implausible" that I'm trying to redefine. 

Viruses are too simple to have a strategy because that would require them to negotiate changing events in order to maintain it. Instead, they have a varied toolkit and the ability to evolve quickly... Evolution is to a virus what thinking is to us...

The key is to be able to change feelings in your tissues. If you have no feeling, then there’s nothing you can change. But once you have some feeling, then you can shape, expand, and even speak to it.

This piece introduces the next hypnotic visualization "Mind and Molecules" that is available as a separate podcast in this series.

COVID-19 and Viral Fatigue

Lactobacillus_plantarum2_9dco8.jpg

One of the consequences of viral infections—and we can presume this will be a consequence of SARS-CoV-2—is something called Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (PVFS). It’s estimated that 20% of those who recover will experience some form of PVFS.

This piece explores what we know about viral fatigue, how it's similar to chronic fatigue, and what is done about it. It is most likely a dysregulation of one's gut and this piece explore my own attempt to rebalance my G.I. tract.

This piece introduces the hypnotic visualization "The Harmony of the Microbes" that is available as a separate podcast in this series.

Membrane Locksmith (a hypnotic induction)

 organisms_in_body-sq.jpg

Membrane Locksmith explores the idea that our minds have the power to affect our membranes and, in the case of viruses, to improve our membranes’ ability to protect themselves.

Let’s take hypnosis to the biochemistry of our membranes. The object of this hypnotic visualization is to:

  • create a new cellular awareness,
  • alert your tissues at a cellular level,
  • awaken membrane-level awareness,
  • stimulate more effective responses to infection.

COVIND-19, Future Visions

bamboo_bridge.jpg

It seems inconceivable that through power of mind alone we can micromanage our white blood cells, but we can. We don’t know how this is done; we don’t even know which ratio is best, yet somehow we can do it. 

Let’s go a step further to the molecular level. Can our minds control the biochemistry of our membranes?

I have created a hypnotic visualization called Membrane Locksmith that explores the idea that our mind has some power to affect our membranes.

This piece, Future Visions, is an introduction to and explanation of Membrane Locksmith.

The Gut Part I-Stomach (a hypnotic induction)

stomach62.jpg

You can build an intuitive relationship with your stomach, but neither a doctor nor psychiatrist can help you. You can only reach your stomach in trance, because your stomach does not live in the world of mind.

The Gut Part I-Stomach leads you to a deeper and more caring relationship with your stomach. It is not curative, and it is not designed for a person in distress, though it might help them. Its aim is to create balance and alliance between your mind and your stomach.

Please tell others about this guided visualization. We all experience stomach distress at various times in our lives. This kind of self-hypnosis can help many people.

COVID-19 and Your Stomach

vagus_nerve-memory.jpg

To develop a relationship with your stomach get beyond the notion that your stomach is there to serve your needs. It’s the other way ’round. Stomach comfort is about what makes your stomach comfortable, not what you want.

Ayahuasca is a medicine, ceremony, and other-worldly adventure; a combination of tropical plants whose chemical effect only manifests in combination. The plant constituents are not edible, and the result is so far from palatable that it goes right off the scale...

The independent intelligence of my stomach was clarified to me through a conversation I had with an impatient old crone who claimed to be my stomach. This voice spoke at a point in one of my hallucinogenic ayahuasca experiences...

You make two decisions before you eat something: is it familiar and does it taste good. Neither should be relied upon without consulting your intuition. But what is intuition?

I’ve created a self-hypnosis audio file called “The Gut Part I – Stomach.” It is not curative, and it is not designed for a person in the throes of a G.I. infection. It's designed to create the kind of balance and alliance I value and maintain between my mind and my stomach.

Airways (a hypnotic induction)

bubbles.jpg

Hypnotizing your immune system might prevent it from filling your lungs with water. You can say that’s ridiculous, but hypnotism can do amazing things.

Airways is written to be an aid for people experiencing pulmonary distress: feared, anticipated, incipient, progressing, serious, or severe. Its goal is to fortify, synchronize, energize, support, and relax both the person, the lymphatic system, and the autonomic nervous system.

Please tell others about these suggestions. I believe it could save lives.

Your Lymphatic System (hypnotic induction)

lymphatic_system_body.jpg

Listen to this visualization and retain the detached state that results from it. You will gain a waking sensitivity toward the areas where your nodes are located. Just as you can move through space with a heightened balance and awareness of the location of your limbs, so you will expand this to “think from your lymph nodes.”

COVID-19: Hypnosis for Your Lymphatic System

doors.jpg

Sleep has been verified as an immune enhancer, and it may be the most effective thing you can do.

It is my untested belief that you can enhance your body’s recuperative efforts during sleep by deepening your interoceptive sense before sleeping.

This piece discusses how you might achieve this through imagining, sensing, and focusing on the tissues, organs, and processes. Do this by listening to the subsequent podcast titled "Your Lymphatic System." This will take you to a deeper connection with these autonomic processes.

Nose and Throat (hypnotic Induction)

nose_and_throat.jpg

The induction Nose and Throat is a sensory exploration, a combination of imagination and heightened awareness. The object is to be mindful about your breath and responsive to the sensations in your throat and maxillary sinuses. Beyond that, my hope is that through creative visualization you will gain some control over the autonomic functions of blood flow, mucus production, and immune response in the sinus and throat tissues.

It is offered here as a tool for improving your immunity against the COVID-19 virus.
