Screaming From The Golden Cage: Heal Anxiety, Depression And Addiction By Embracing The Truth

Dr. Bruce Alexander, professor emeritus of psychology, performed an experiment in the 1970s. His team built two cages for laboratory rats. In one cage a rat was alone and isolated. It couldn’t see or touch other rats and had nothing to do. In the other cage called Rat Park, they had good food and lots of cheese, running wheels for exercise, colored balls, platforms for climbing, tin cans for hiding and many other rats to play and have sex with.

Rat Park soon filled with babies. In both cases, rats had access to two drinking bottles: a bottle of water and a bottle of water with morphine. Morphine is pure heroin. Unlike street heroin that contains brick dust, bleach powder, cement and other contaminants, morphine is much stronger. At the end of each day, researchers measured the two bottles to see if rats preferred the pure water or the heroin water.

The rats in solitary confinement almost always chose the heroin water. They always became addicted and killed themselves. In Rat Park, they almost never drank heroin water. None become addicted or overdosed. Rats are social, sexual and working beings just like humans.

It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble.
Is what you know for sure that just ain’t so.
– Mark Twain

People who become addicted don’t have to be put in cages. It’s enough for them only to feel caged-in a job, in a relationship, in a family or in a country. They will drink or take drugs to cope with the situation. Prof. Alexander concluded that addiction is an escape from an environment where human connection is impossible. Alcohol or drug dependence is the consequence of not bearing being present in your own life.

While prof. Alexander was studying the effects of the social environment on rats, the Vietnam war was unfolding on the other side of the world. According to a study published in the Archives of General Psychiatry, 20 percent of the American soldiers fighting in Vietnam were addicted to heroin. The public in the United States was terrified that hundreds of thousands of veterans will become junkies but this never happened.

When they returned home, 95 percent of the addicted soldiers stopped using heroin within one year. Another study published in the Archives of General Psychiatry revealed that addicts who didn’t receive any treatment were as likely to stop using drugs as those who went rehab. They changed the environment, they changed their behaviors.

Johann Hari, in his book Chasing the Scream, wrote that rats in solitary confinement and soldiers in Vietnam didn’t become victims of the drug but of their environment. Addiction was their way of coping with “being dislocated from everything that gave them meaning,” wrote Hari. When you feel caged, and your world becomes intolerable, you leave physically if you can or mentally if you cannot. When soldiers returned home to a meaningful life, they gave up the drugs.

People who live in a social environment where they can connect with others and bond with their work will not become addicted even if they have alcohol and drugs around them because they want to be present in their lives. But if you feel trapped or caged in a situation, a job or a relationship, if you cannot bond because of you in life in a social context that punishes you for expressing who you are and for living your truth, you will find refuge in whatever takes your pain away. Prof. Peter Cohen, director of the Center for Drug Research at the University of Amsterdam, suggested that we need to replace the word addiction with the word bonding. We have a fundamental human need to bond with our work and with others, but we can only bond if we live our truth and open our hearts.

Do You Feel Caged?

You don’t need to live in a cage, or to go to war to feel caged, and not be able to find meaning in life. Your own mind, your unconscious beliefs, a toxic friendship, a job environment or family relationship can choke your will to express who you are with the same tragic effects. The heart’s calling – your will – is only love and cannot be anything else. Your will flows through your heart and pulls you towards what you most value in life.

When you embrace it, you find meaning. When you block it, you find pain. Love is the force that pulls us to follow our dreams and step into the unknown, to reveal and express who we are, to explore, to discover, to create and to bond. Whenever your behaviors conflict your will, whenever you think and act against love, tension grows within yourself. Strain turns into pain. Anger, anxiety, and depression follow.

The Importance of Living Your Truth

I have a friend who is project manager for a financial corporation, but her dream is to open a restaurant. Her will is to start this new business. Every time she thinks about her calling her heart fills with joy. She feels love. But immediately her mind drags her in the opposite direction: ‘What if it doesn’t work?’ ‘I am in my thirties, and I have a child. ‘What will my parents say about me quitting my job after they supported me through college?’

She then acts as she thinks she should and stays in her job without actually willing to do so. Everyone envies her. She earns a great paycheck, has a loving husband and a beautiful child, and she’s sinking into depression. She feels even worse when she looks around her because apparently, she has no reason to feel depressed. The truth is she has the only reason to feel depressed: her heart is screaming from a golden cage, and she doesn’t listen.

Finding Peace of Mind and Joy with Truth

The greater is the gap between what love calls you to do and what you actually do, the deeper the depression you can fall into. The way to find joy is to leave the cage, not to make it prettier. Why do you think the waiting rooms of psychologists and psychiatrists are filled with successful people who realized after twenty or thirty years of work that money, a career and a house in the suburbs do not bring peace of mind and joy of heart?

They keep hoping that by changing the external conditions of their lives – earn more money, be in a better physical shape, have another partner or travel more – will change how they feel. It never works because the emptiness is not around them. The emptiness is within them. And the only way to come back to life is to acknowledge that little voice rising from your heart and begging you to return to love, to return to truth.

Heal Yourself of Herpes Naturally! A Complete Guide for Natural Cure!

Heal Yourself of Herpes Naturally! A Complete Guide for Natural Cure!


Warning: Do not buy this book unless you are willing to discipline yourself and manage your time efficiently enough to spend few hours on yourself everyday. Dear Reader, You might have come across various articles, blogposts and books on Herpes. I have seen books that dedicate the initial chapters in educating the reader about Herpes, its causes, symptoms and types. Sadly some authors have the nerve to give their books with cure and without cure where the one with cure is priced higher than the one without cure. This book is not going to talk about what Herpes is. It will not even discuss the types, symptoms and causes. This book is about the CURE! This book talks ONLY about the SOLUTION! There is NO magic pill. It involves a LOT of cheap medicine you can find anywhere easily- herbal, ayurvedic and natural medicines you can find in your garden, kitchen, supermarket and stores that sells alternate medicines. And it contains directions about a series of simple activities like exercises, massages, breathing techniques, etc. We will discuss the cure for Herpes which happens to be the cure for many sexually transmitted diseases (with slight modifications). BEFORE you buy this book keep in mind the following.1) I am NOT SELLING any product here or anywhere for that matter. Do not lose your money to any fraudulent impostor posing to be Richard Teddy Frank. I have NO plans to start a website until mid 2016. If I open a website, I will announce it on my author page on Amazon. Right now my hands are full with my practice and wellness centre, and I don’t fancy having a website run entirely by the staff members.2) I am NOT going to ask you to sign up with me for prescriptions or tailor-made charts. Medicines are prescribed here in this book. You can buy anywhere you want. 3) I am going to show you how to get cured of Herpes using the inexpensive things you find in your garden, kitchen, supermarket and stores that sells Indian medicine. Be healed. God bless you-Richard Teddy Frank

Rape Survivor: Working On A Sexual Assault Documentary Helped Me Heal

Ari Mostov says she was bitter that she felt pushed out of her “dream school” in 2013, after campus officials didn’t take her report of rape seriously.

Now, the 22-year-old is channeling her energy into “It Happened Here,” a documentary about campus rape — work she said makes her feel like she is making an impact and has also helped her heal.

Mostov filed a complaint in May 2013 against the University of Southern California that resulted in an ongoing federal investigation of the school. In the complaint, Mostov detailed that the university’s Department of Public Safety had told her she had not been raped because her assailant stopped and did not orgasm.

Records later obtained by The Huffington Post showed that the DPS had also labeled Mostov’s report as an “injury response” rather than rape, which she believes shows how the school kept sexual assault statistics low.

The increased scrutiny on USC began to subside in 2014. Some of the complainants graduated, while others said they became too stressed to continue speaking about their cases in public. Mostov was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and clinical depression. She had found university employees’ responses to her report of an assault to exacerbate her mental anguish, so she left USC behind.

“I knew returning to school, it was going to be absolute hell again,” Mostov said, so she took time off to address the aftermath of her assault on her own terms.

Mostov was a film and screenwriting major at USC, and was able to find some short-term production work after leaving school. Then she was introduced to Marjorie Schwartz Nielsen in November 2014, who agreed to hire Mostov to help work on the “It Happened Here” release and subsequent campaign and promotions. The film debuted on the cable channel Pivot earlier this year and began being screened on college campuses in conjunction with the White House’s “It’s On Us” anti-sexual violence campaign. It will be released on iTunes and Google Play on May 12.

Working on the film, Mostov said, has been “one of the most amazing experiences” of her life.

“For the longest time I wasn’t able to think about what happened, I wasn’t able to grieve,” Mostov said. “Not being able to return to the school of my dreams and all of this hurt and pain I was putting off — I was finally able to put it to work.”

Nielsen said the survivors she has worked with and interviewed came forward for various reasons — that their assailant attacked someone else, that they felt their school’s atmosphere was getting worse, that they were tired of hearing stories similar to theirs — but what has kept them involved is a desire for “not letting the momentum die.”

“None of them pursued civil suits against their attackers,” she said. “They took up activism because they wanted it to change things.”

Neilsen said the social activism component is critical because to actually eliminate sexual violence, awareness isn’t enough — advocates need to address actual solutions.

At each screening, Neilsen said she explains campaigns some colleges have hosted on their campuses to inspire copy-cat demonstrations, and asks students in attendance to take the White House’s “It’s On Us” pledge.

The “It Happened Here” team has had more than 130 screening requests for the film, including some from organizations in France, Canada and Bangladesh. It’s stretching beyond college campuses, getting screened at several California high schools. On March 30, Mostov and Neilsen spoke about sexual assault at a TEDxYouth event in San Diego. Over the summer, the team will plan for more screenings at schools in the fall. They said they are particularly hoping to get more high school students to see the film, so they can start engaging young people before they arrive at college.

“This affects everyone, and really, in order to stop the cycle, we need to get ahead of these behaviors,” Mostov said. She envisions a day when asking for consent is as routine as asking for a condom.

“We’re really hoping to help to teach people, especially the younger generation, that they have a right to advocate for themselves,” she added. “It’s personally something I really struggled with because I didn’t know.”

Mostov wants to send the message that “I am brave.”

“I am doing this, this happened to me and I’m not going to be silent about it,” she explained. “My story matters too. This is what happened. I don’t care if you don’t believe me, I don’t care. This is what happened to me.”

After Earthquake, Kids In Nepal Heal Through Art

A group is providing some comfort to kids in Nepal through art therapy.

Following the magnitude-7.8 earthquake that struck Nepal last month, the staff from Nepal Children’s Art Museum (CAM) has been working at a child friendly space (CFS) — an area set-up by UNICEF that provides support for children following emergencies — to help kids create art as a form of healing.

CAM is trying to extend its efforts further by raising money for its initiative through a crowdfunding campaign to bring art therapy programs to other child friendly spaces in Nepal. So far, they have raised around $ 4,300 of a $ 20,000 goal.

The group hopes its work can give the kids some support during this difficult time, according to founder Sneha Shrestha.

“Art is a good way to help them recover from the disaster. Providing children with learning experiences during these hard times gives children safety and predictability,” Sneha told The Huffington Post. “We hope that they don’t lose their imagination and continue to draw, play, learn and just be children.”

At the CFS, the museum staff provides art supplies and toys to the children, Nistha Shrestha, CAM’s director, told HuffPost. They participate in creative and educational activities with the kids as well. Sometimes, the children tell stories with puppets CAM has given them, or draw different landscapes or objects. While art may not seem so important after a natural disaster, it can be crucial to a child’s rehabilitation.

“Some of these children have not had any of these experiences even before the earthquake occurred,” Nistha said. “We hope that we are giving them an opportunity to associate the earthquake with more positive memories of a space where they feel safe, cared for and appreciated.”

The initiative seems to have had a positive effect on the kids. Nistha told HuffPost that art has become something the children eagerly look forward to each day.

“When we start to pack up, they hang around, not wanting to leave … We have to constantly assure them that we will be back the next day to get them to leave!”

Heal and Release What No Longer Serves You

I’m a huge fan of healing and release. As we peel away past layers of ourselves, hurts, limiting beliefs that no longer serve us, and anything else that needs to be cleared, we step more fully into the person we’re here to be in this life.

As part of my TAT Acupressure certification, I get to work with a sweet soul from India as we give one another sessions. In our most recent session, we both showed up with a similar focus. She was focusing on feeling like she didn’t have enough time and always feeling rushed. I was focused on feeling the pressure that comes with major expansion in my business, and the fears and worries of someone who has crashed and burned spectacularly in a past businesses.

The fears we carry from our past weigh us down, and often cause us to recreate the exact same situations we set out to avoid.

During our sessions we focus on silent conversation with whoever or whatever shows up… and there I was, facing my younger, less experienced self. The person who, while building a pretty great and successful business, also made some really poor choices and decisions financially, with clients, and just in life in general.

When my younger self appeared to me, a whole swell of love and compassion washed over me. I found myself saying to her that it was okay… more than okay. All of what she went through was so necessary and so needed, and that without her errors and poor choices, I wouldn’t be the business owner I am today. I wouldn’t have the business I have today, doing the work I do, completely fulfilled and in love with every aspect of it.

More importantly, I wouldn’t be as fully aligned as I am today, in life, business and relationships.

Each and every misstep brought me closer to this space, and every mistake and failure has taught me so much. I’ve built a really solid business with an amazing team, serving so many beautiful and inspiring individuals around the world. I’ve learned how and where I need support, what works and what doesn’t, who I really want to serve and support, and how to best deliver my work.

The mistakes are a huge part of my getting to this point.

I left my session feeling totally calm. That part of me that has been so afraid of repeating past mistakes finally feels at peace. Expressing compassion and appreciation to that older version of me… wow. Healing and release is one of my favorite things in the world. It allows you to grow more completely into the person you’re here to be, and show up more fully in your life, relationships, and work.

2014-12-18-HealRelease.12.2014.Temp_C.jpg

Heal and Release What No Longer Serves You

1. Recognize the layers that are at play.

It took me some time to realize that much of the fear, worry, and stress I had in my business came so heavily from my past experiences. I’ve done a lot of work around faith and trust, and I’ve felt so clear that everything is really aligning for me right now in an amazing way… yet I felt a lot of fear. Fear that it was all going to come crashing down more spectacularly than I’d ever experienced before. Fear that I didn’t have what it would take to continue growing, expanding, serving, creating, and showing up how I desire to.

You have to take pause and really dive into the heart of what’s coming up for you. Sure, life may be hard and stressful right now, things may be off, but is the fear, worry, stress, or overwhelm truly coming from this moment? Or is it coming from a past hurt, failure, or period of your life? Are you projecting beliefs you cling to onto people and moments that don’t warrant them? Dive in with curiosity (not judgement) and see what you uncover.

2. Heal the layers that need healing.

Sometimes in order to truly move forward, we need to forgive someone we never thought we could. Sometimes that person is ourselves, the one who made mistakes or hurt others. Sometimes we need to send light and love to older versions of ourselves, and show some compassion for what we were going through. Sometimes we need to rebuild trust, reconnect to our truth, and accept ourselves exactly as we are. This will look different depending on the layer that’s coming up. My favorite forgiveness exercise is Hoʻoponopono, the ancient Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness.

Simply sit with the statement, “I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.” You can do this while tapping with EFT, in meditation, or while sitting in front of the mirror looking into your own eyes (a really uncomfortable and powerful practice). I’m also a huge fan of Acupressure for releasing attachments, resonance, and stuck emotions.

3. Release it.

Sometimes we become so attached to our stories, beliefs, and limited ways of operating in the world that it’s terribly uncomfortable to be without them. But if you want to experience a life, relationship, or work you really love, you have to release. Take all the pages you journaled on through your healing and burn them. Write a letter or make a call and create closure. Use Acupressure to remove it for good. Bring yourself back to the present moment, fully healed and whole, and engage in what’s in front of you right now.

When you’ve really worked through this process, you’ll feel more peaceful, focused, aligned, and on purpose. There’s no longer anything holding you back from doing and becoming anything you desire… except maybe the next layer.

4. Repeat as often as you need.

Here’s the thing… there are so many layers. Layers upon layers upon layers will come up for you as you work to create more joy, purpose, fulfillment, and alignment in your life. It’s natural! We pick up so much “stuff” from our childhood, as we grow up, and all the experiences that we have in life. All relationships leave energy and imprints, from family to friends to partners. All experiences leave imprints as well. With a world and people made up entirely of energy, it’s impossible to avoid being effected by what’s happening to and around you. Continue this process as often as you need, and remember that you’re not broken if another layer surfaces, you’re just human.

Take action now!

Where are you feeling stuck or held back due to past experiences, beliefs, or versions of yourself? Work through the steps above and start healing and releasing those layers.

Lea Michele Reveals Kate Hudson Helped Her Heal After Cory Monteith’s Death

Lea Michele is opening up about her boyfriend Cory Monteith’s death in the new issue of Elle magazine.

The “Glee” star, 27, covers the December issue and reveals that her co-star Kate Hudson took her in and helped her cope with Monteith’s death. Michele admits that Hudson was one of the first people she called upon hearing the tragic news, explaining, “I called her and said, ‘I don’t know where I’m going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters].’ She was like, ‘Oh, you’re going to stay at my house.’ Like it was nothing.”

And Hudson didn’t just open her doors to Michele.

“She let my family stay there, and any of my friends. She made sure that in the refrigerator were my favorite juices,” Michele tells Elle. “I’ll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me.”

Monteith died in July at the age of 31 from a “mixed drug toxicity” consisting of heroin and alcohol and Michele has been slowly adjusting to a life without him ever since.

“It’s very hard,” she admits, continuing, “You have to be very strong to come out of this alive, but I think by doing the best for myself, by showing that you don’t have to lose yourself, maybe someone else will feel some sort of strength or comfort.”

In the interview, Michele also admits that she and Monteith began dating during the first season of “Glee,” but that “no one really caught on.” In early 2012, they made it official: “‘You wanna do this?'” Michele recalled them asking themselves. “We knew.”

“I know that Cory would want nothing more than for me to take this situation and use it to help people,” Michele adds, “I don’t know if I will. I don’t know how.”
