Product Review: Joy Organics CBD Oils

CBD oil:  How do you know which oil to buy?

What is the hype about CBD oil?  Is the buzz true that CBD oil is the “miracle cure” for what ails us?  After many years of thinking that Big Pharma is better, people are returning to mother nature and her herbs and spices.  Plants are effective as healers, and without the side effects often found with pharmaceutical medications.

There may be a better way to heal, a more natural way.  The body’s endocannabinoid system was discovered by scientist Mark Harkenham in 1990, and it has taken 28 years for politics and research to catch on to how this system interacts with our immune and neurological systems.

Negative People Bring you Down

What would happen if you got rid of all the negative people in your life? The complainers, whiners, and manipulators. The abusers.

If you stopped associating with all those people who bring you grief, who would be left?  What percentage of your life consists of negativity?

We know, intellectually, that negative people bring us down, but even so, we live, work, sleep and eat with them.  We do our best to ignore them, to appease them, to understand them, but by the end of the day, we are tired of their drama.

Emotional Release Through Body Work

 

woman in warrior poseWhat does this mean?  Emotional release through body work.

The idea of emotions stored in the body is not new.  Alice Miller (1923-2010), a psychologist who was a child survivor of Nazi Germany, was one of the first to bring this to light.  She wrote several books on the subject, but her ideas were put to rest until recently.  Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) also understood that women’s “hysteria” resulted from sexual abuse, but he waylaid this path and went the way of alter egos and parent-hate as the cause of our problems.  His thinking has been the basis for therapists for the last one-hundred years.  It is time to put his practices to rest.

The Meaning of Healing

How do you know when you are healed? What exactly is the meaning of “healing?”

A cut heals into a scar. We say the cut is “healed,” but the reminder is there in the form of a scar. Is a scar a form of healing?  Physical scars are usually a tear in the skin – whether a big tear or as a knife wound, or a small tear – a prick of the finger with a pin.

Our bodies have an amazing capacity to rejuvenate and grow. Growth is one of the requirements of a living organism. Growth and reproduction.
