THE SLACKER - NEUTRALIZED BY STRESS? by Cathy D. Slaght
We're at a time of increased awareness, but for many it isn't leading to ACTION.
For example, we know the dangers of processed foods, but don't seem to change the way we eat. We see inequities in the court system, but say nothing, since it doesn't seem to effect OUR LIVES personally. And then there's the children- some unspeakable things are coming to light, but most prefer not to talk about it.
A term for those who go about their daily lives without regard for the rest of the world could be SLACKER. After all, each of us can have such a positive impact on the world.
But, then, maybe this isn't a fair assessment.
It could be that SLACKERS are just people who have been neutralized by STRESS. Their brains are ALREADY working to capacity. There's no energy to deal with anything beyond their own personal life.
And yes, the brain requires exceptional amounts of energy. It governs each and every one of our actions, conscious or otherwise, or so the experts say. And then there's the tedious day to day stuff:
Ultimately, the hypothalamus, a cherry-sized gland in the brain, along with its two principle allies, the pituitary and pineal, is responsible for all this- the entire process is known as homeostasis. These 3 allies control the flow of energy in and out of the body, but the hypothalamus starts the ball rolling. This is why its gained the reputation of being the “guardian of health”.
It's like a general control unit for the brain.
And, again, STRESS throws it off. This term-stress- covers a wide range- any form of trauma, early childhood or otherwise, EMF, poor diet, career and relationship stress, physical illness or injury, and let's not forget FEAR- which typically accompanies the programming all of us have experienced.
We adapt to all this stress, but only so far. Then BOOM- there's a catastrophe of some sort- often illness, but it may also manifest as financial problems, relationship disintegration, and so on. It varies for each of us. The Universe may just be trying to get our attention.
Some of us get to have all the BOOMS at once. But also, there can be COLLECTIVE BOOMS.
For example, are you aware that, according to those who research this type of thing, there is now more revenue in America from child sex trafficking than drugs? You may want to confirm this via some internet research, and then share what you learn with others.
AND- are you aware that here, in the “land of the free” many internet sites/ YouTubes that talk about this are being blacklisted, taken down, while online pornography continues to run freely?
Who can exert this kind of power?
Awareness- followed by united action- for the children- is it necessary, and if so, are we capable?
Meanwhile, for today's group work, we're focused on the hypothalamus- etheric, not physical
