Fighting Parkinson’s, and 2019…the year of calming your mind!

Happy New Year, 2019!!! As we wound down 2018 chanting our affirmations together, the sun began to rise and awaken us to 2019 and the wonderment of all of the possibilities that lie ahead. For each and every one of you, this is a new year, a new breath of fresh air, and a new outlook: 2019…the year of calming your mind!

As you know, the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® is a soul, mind, and body recovery protocol. If you do not calm your mind and get control over your mind, your adrenaline-driven-self-criticizing-anxious-fearful-mind (yes, THAT mind), then your mind will substantially interfere with the soul and body recovery.

Your mind says, “Why have faith in the recovery and learn to love yourself? (soul healing). Weren’t you paying attention at the neurologist’s office? You cannot be cured. You cannot even slow or halt the disease. And by the way, your best is not good enough, so no matter how hard you try to get better, you will not ever do enough to be worthy and deserving of the recovery.” Can you see how your mind undermines your soul recovery?

Your mind says, “Why do you think your body is getting better? (body healing). Who cares that you got your sense of smell back, that your fingernails are growing long, strong, and fast, that your energy has improved, that you are sleeping better, that your urgent urination has subsided, that your constipation has subsided, that your indigestion has gone away, and that people are telling you how much better you look? You are shaking a little more or are a little stiffer or slower? You are getting worse.” Can you see how your mind undermines your body recovery?

How do you calm THAT mind? Well, my friends, to begin 2019, help is right here in a larger way than you can imagine. As I am certain you have seen in the blog post comments, a regular contributor is “Jan — UK.”

Jan’s husband Alex is a musician. He narrated a guided meditation with affirmations for Jan and they shared it with me. When we were on our next coaching call, Alex joined Jan and me and explained that if I felt it would be beneficial, he would remove the affirmations/meditations personal to Jan and re-record a similar guided affirmation/meditation audio for all of you as a gift.

I was overwhelmed and told them that it would be a wonderful way to start the new year, calming the mind. So, my friends, here is the gift from Jan and Alex in the UK:


Thank you Jan and Alex for your hard work on Jan’s recovery and for your willingness to assist our world-wide recovery community. I am grateful for you.

2019…the year of calming your mind!

I am grateful for all of you!

Happy New Year 2019!

YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!

All my best,

Howard

Fighting Parkinson’s, and opening your energy flow

Today I am posting my fourth video in my Parkinson’s Disease Symptoms Relief video series. The video focuses on reaching up and stretching to open your energy flow for less tremors and better movement.

I feel that Parkinson’s symptoms, particularly tremors, originate in large part with a blockage in Gallbladder Meridian Point 21 near the shoulders. Click here to see the Gallbladder Meridian.

As you can see, there are 20 points on each side of the head. The meridian exits the head through point 20 at the base of the skull on both sides of the head. From there it goes across the side of the neck and out toward the shoulder through point number 21.

When point number 21 is blocked, very little energy can flow down the arms and very little energy can flow down the meridian through the body down to the fourth toe of each foot. This results in tremors in the arms and hands, tightness in the trunk and legs, difficulty in standing up from a chair, difficulty in initiating walking, and issues of poor balance.

Todays video, Parkinson’s Symptoms Relief Part 4 – Reaching and Stretching for Tremors and Better Movement, is a reaching and stretching exercise designed to open and stretch in the open position GB point 21. Here it is:

In the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®, you are stimulating and stretching the Gallbladder Meridian in the second part of Medical Qigong for the Liver. However, there is no direct focus on stretching and opening point 21. This reach and stretch exercise is a wonderful complement to the Recipe.

Okay. Let’s all reach for the stars, reach for the moon, reach for the sky, and open GB 21 for less tremors, more energy, and better movement.

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

Howard

Fighting Parkinson’s, and strengthening your voice

Today I am posting my third video in my Parkinson’s Disease Symptoms Relief video series. The video focuses on strengthening your voice and improving articulation so you can face the world with confidence.

Many people with Parkinson’s find it difficult to go out in public or be in other social settings because they have a weak voice or feel like they are not able to correctly articulate their words. This is the worst feeling.

It is important to be able to go out into the world with confidence and a fully articulate booming voice. It is one of the things by which others judge how you are doing, and nothing says “I am getting better” more clearly than your voice.

1. Inhale deeply, and on the exhale say aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh loudly for as long as possible. Repeat this 5 times in a row two or three times per day. This will shake phlegm loose and increase voice volume as well as raise your internal vibration. 


2. Repeat the following for one minute each:

Lalalalalalalalalala 

Nanananananana

Tatatatatatatatata         

You can do this 1-3 times per day. These are exercises for the tongue, and they help with articulation.

Here is a video for further explanation and a demonstration:

Okay. One last thing. I could not hear any of you. So, take a deep breath right now in the moment, and let me hear a big, booming aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh. Okay, okay, okay…I am hearing you now. Good for all of you.

Now grab onto the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®, go out and be with other people, and be your own cure for your Parkinson’s,

I know you can do it.

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

Howard

Fighting Parkinson’s, and being in the present moment RIGHT NOW!

Last month, I made a big push with my November to Remember, No Excuses November, 30-day challenge 2018 to do a modified version of the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® for 30 days. The 30 days ended yesterday, November 30, 2018. So, what’s next? Where do you go from here?

Yesterday was November 30, 2018 and today is December 1, 2018. We have a way of putting labels and limits on our lives based upon what somebody at some previous time decided was correct. Theoretically, if somebody’s decision had been different, today would be November 31, 2018. What I am trying to point out to you is that much of what we think is real is a script written by somebody else, and we have been following the script and its rules without question.

If you want to be cured of Parkinson’s, then today, you need to begin breaking the rules, clearing out the illusions, and writing your own script of where you want to go in your life and your recovery. It is time to choose to start truly being your cure and living your cure!

Faith says “I know I am going to be cured of Parkinson’s, and I will do the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® every day until I am cured!” That’s it! So, what are you doing in the moment RIGHT NOW?

Where is your mind? Is it looking back at November thinking good thoughts? Is it looking back at November thinking self-criticizing thoughts about how you did with the 30-day challenge? Is it looking forward with excitement? Is it looking forward with fear?

As you can see, the mind pulls you away from what is going on RIGHT NOW! What is going on right now is you are reading this post with your fellow travelers on this path to your cure…be in the moment, gather strength and perseverance from each other, connect to each other through the universal energy…draw energy from inside yourself, share it with the others, and draw their energy into you as you feel this moment, RIGHT NOW!

And smile. We all are in this life together. We are drawn here together for a reason. Being as we all are here together, why not make the most of it and help ourselves by helping each other.

Where is your mind? When you are sharing the universal energy with each other, bringing yourself into the moment RIGHT NOW, and feeling each other’s love and compassion, you cannot answer the question “where is your mind,” because your mind leaves, and your heart controls the moment.

Yes, when you are in the moment RIGHT NOW, you are in your heart, and for that flicker in the moment RIGHT NOW, your mind does not exist in the past or in the future…there is no judgment, no regret, no criticism, no fear…no deceptive, illusion-filled, Adrenaline-driven mind.

In the moment RIGHT NOW, as we gather together and feel each other’s presence, there is love, joy, compassion, contentment, gratitude, forgiveness, happiness, and simply being.

Where is my mind? I do not know. I am in my heart.

And, where is your mind? The more you are in your heart, in the moment RIGHT NOW, the more you will be able to answer the question “where is your mind?” with the answer “I do not know.”

Today is December 1, 2018. How about that. What are you doing in the moment RIGHT NOW?

How about letting go of your over-thinking mind in favor of your loving, compassionate heart. How about making the commitment to yourself to cure yourself from Parkinson’s, and then living your cure in all you do, physically, mentally, and spiritually.

You can do this. I know you can!

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

Howard
