Jenny Rush Chronic Illness as an Access to Quantum Healing. Passing Through the Eye of the Needle into Self-Actualization

1052 руб.
After a number of years of being chronically ill with Lyme disease, Jenny Rush had a momentary realization that she was overlooking a lesson(s) that was resulting in continued ill health. As she went into her last year of dealing with chronic illness at a physical level, Jenny shifted her primary focus from the illness itself to addressing the multitude of experiences that the illness was provoking. This resulted in ongoing shifts in perspective, a process of awakening to her true Self that resulted in quantum healing.This is a raw, honest and inspiring story that takes the reader through the common struggles of chronic illness such as resistance, resignation, lack of self-worth, loss of identity, suicidal depression, guilt and exhaustion into acceptance, surrender, awakening and true healing. It describes the process of an ordinary person traveling through the eye of the needle into self-realization.While Jenny's revelations were similar to those described in near death experiences, there were no exotic or ellaborate visuals. She was a normal person lying on sofa and staring at cobwebs on the ceiling when she had her first of many epiphenies. This book is for anyone dealing with chronic illness who longs for peace and fulfillment. It is the story of using the experiences of Chronic Illness as an access to Quantum Healing, and of how true healing is available to, and possible for, anyone.

What if your ‘incurable’ chronic illness could actually be undiagnosed (but treatable) Lyme disease?Do you have a host of chronic, life-altering symptoms that have baffled your doctors and left you with no clear answers? Or have you been diagnosed with a debilitating chronic illness like fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome, or even a serious neurological disorder like MS, ALS or Parkinson’s?What if, like thousands of other people, the real root of your chronic illness has actually been the treatable condition of chronic Lyme disease, but no one you’ve consulted has yet known how to rule it in…or out…of your diagnostic picture? What if, instead of blaming yourself for not trying harder to cope or not being tougher while living with your pain, fatigue, brain fog and other significant symptoms, you found out that you actually had a bacterial-based illness needing specific medical treatment? How would having a treatment that finally sends you on your path to wellness change your life?Author Lisa Dennys took on the role of relentless health care detective and spent over 30 years on a personal search for wellness. Diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, heavy metal toxicity, adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism, Lisa tried everything to get well. In this process, she was forced by illness to take extended leave from her career paths as an Occupational Therapist, Doctor of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture and Life Coach.

Elizabeth Mburu African Hermeneutics

2102 руб.
Interpretation of Scripture occurs within one’s worldview and culture, which enhances our understanding and ability to apply Scripture in the world. However, few books address Bible interpretation from an African perspective and no other textbook uses the intercultural approach found here. This book brings both an awareness of how one’s African context gives a lens to hermeneutics, but also how to interpret texts with integrity despite our cultural influences.African Hermeneutics was born of Prof Elizabeth Mburu’s frustration at only having textbooks that predominantly followed a Western worldview to teach her African students. Mburu’s approach to hermeneutics is one that begins in Africa, moving from the known to the unknown as students learn to apply her ‘four-legged stool model’ to biblical texts, namely examining: the parallels to African contexts, the theological context, the literary context, and the historical and cultural context. This textbook will help students and pastors interpret Scripture with greater accuracy in their own context, allowing for faithful application in their local contexts.

Is mental illness really demons? Many Christians and just people in general believe that mental illness is demons, and there are even many books written to that affect. Many deliverance ministries get a lot of business from the mentally ill. But is it really always demons?There are many Christians living with mental illness and they aren't healed, some are ministers. This book is about mental illness from a Christian perspective, and many wonder if you can even be a real Christian and have mental illness.

For some of us, myself included, chronic illness can be a cruel and painful road that we're unfortunately forced to walk alone. For in that place we spend far too many years suffering in total isolation where perceptions, prejudices and ignorance dominate every facet of our mortal being. A place where Lymes Disease, Gulf War Syndrome, Myalgic Encephalopathy, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Toxic Body Syndrome, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Depression and Stress etc, are simply written off as psychologically driven illnesses and / or illnesses that's there's no possibility of recovering from. But as someone who's been through the chronic illness mill and come out the other side, I'm here today proclaiming that there is a way through those illnesses and that way is mapped simply in my Raphael's Treatment Protocol.

When “African Theology” was first formulated, women played just a small role. In 1989 Mercy Amba Oduyoye set out to change this by creating the Circle of Concerned African Theologians in order to them a voice. The Circle of Concerned African Women Theologians is an African Baby, born in an ecumenical surrounding. Though there were other movements addressing the issue of gender inequalities in church and society, circle theologies are distinct from other women's liberation movements in that they are theologies formed in the context of African culture and religion. This book traces the Circle history from 1989 to 2007.

Myra Bluebond-Langner In the Shadow of Illness. Parents and Siblings of the Chronically Ill Child

4164 руб.
What is it like to live with a child who has a chronic, life-threatening disease? What impact does the illness have on well siblings in the family? Myra Bluebond-Langner suggests that understanding the impact of the illness lies not in identifying deficiencies in the lives of those affected, but in appreciating how family members carry on with their lives in the face of the disease's intrusion. The Private Worlds of Dying Children, Bluebond-Langner's previous book, now considered a classic in the field, explored the world of terminally ill children. In her new book, she turns her attention to the lives of those who live in the shadow of chronic illness: the parents and well siblings of children who have cystic fibrosis. Through a series of narrative portraits, she draws us into the daily lives of nine families of children at different points in the natural history of the illness--from diagnosis through the terminal phase. In these portraits, as family members talk about their experiences in their own words, we see how parents, well siblings, and the ill children themselves struggle, in different ways, to contain the intrusion of the disease into their lives. Bluebond-Langner looks at how parents adjust their priorities and their idea of what constitutes a normal life, how they try to balance the needs of other family members while caring for the ill child, and how they see the future. This context helps us understand how well siblings view the illness and how they rel...

Religious Conversion: An African Perspective includes a selection of key texts which are not easily accessible elsewhere. Most of the chapters discuss the long-standing thesis of Robin Horton who argues that religious change results from social transformation. The contributors provide different perspectives on what remains an ongoing provocative, though inconclusive debate. The book has chapters on conversion in Africa from such authorities as Robin Horton, Humphrey Fisher, and Richard Gray. It also contains chapters on Zambia by Elizaebeth Colson, Brendan Carmody, Austin Cheyeka, Felix Phiri and W Van Binsbergen. This collection of chapters provides an introduction to the discussion surrounding the query: Did the Christian and Muslim messages bring something fundamentally new to the African religious horizon? What has indigenisation meant? What is the role of traditional religion?

3944 руб.
People with mental illness have been negatively treated, stereotyped and rejected due to the societal notions and misconceptions about mental illness. Recent studies claim that the dangerousness criterion of the involuntary commitment statute accounts for psychiatric stereotyping and discrimination despite improved treatments and better prognosis for mental illness. The purpose of this study was to investigate the cultural conceptions of mental illness within an African culture residing in Botswana versus the same conceptions within an American culture residing in Miami, Florida. This was achieved by examining the current cultural conceptions of mental illness within each culture. We explored the cultural differences of individuals’ perceptions of involuntary hospitalization of people with mental disorders as specified by the mandatory commitment statutes from each culture.

The continuing revival of traditional African religion presents an unavoidable challenge to African Christianity. While Africans today are being exposed to modern education, traditional thought is still the source of the basic world-view of most of the people, and the growing Christian population is not exempt from this influence. This book provides a new, constructive and critical approach to African traditional religion, from the standpoint of Christian faith. The major issues discussed are: African beliefs about God; sources of African knowledge about God; African beliefs about the spirit world; worship of the spirits; and African beliefs about sacrifice and sacrifice in a biblical perspective.

Research on health involves evaluating the disparities that are systematically associated with the experience of risk, including genetic and physiological variation, environmental exposure to poor nutrition and disease, and social marginalization. This volume provides a unique perspective - a comparative approach to the analysis of health disparities and human adaptability - and specifically focuses on the pathways that lead to unequal health outcomes. From an explicitly anthropological perspective situated in the practice and theory of biosocial studies, this book combines theoretical rigor with more applied and practice-oriented approaches and critically examines infectious and chronic diseases, reproduction, and nutrition.

Gerhard Kubik Angola in the Black Cultural Expressions of Brazil

2014 руб.
The transplantation of African musical cultures to the Americas was a multi-track and multi-time process. In the past many historical studies of African diaspora music, dance and other aspects of expressive culture concentrated on events in the Americas. What happened before the American trauma and simultaneously in Africa was often looked at unhistorically. In this book, world-renowned ethnomusicologist Gerhard Kubik considers African music and dance forms as the products of people living in various African cultures which have changed continuously in history, absorbing and processing elements from inside and outside the continent, creating new styles and fashions all the time. African diaspora music then appears as a consequent and creative extension overseas of African musical cultures that have existed in the period between the sixteenth and the twentieth century. From this perspective African diaspora music cannot be described adequately in terms of "retentions" and "survivals," as if African cultures in the Americas were doomed from the outset and perhaps only by some act of mercy permitted to "retain" certain elements. Using field research and documentary sources, Kubik tracks down some aspects of the Angolan dimension in the panorama of African music and dance cultures in Brazil, and also addresses methodology applicable in the wider context of African diaspora cultural studies.

6014 руб.
One of the fundamental challenges in deconstructing, rethinking and remaking the world from a Pan African vantage point is that some captives have tended to delight in the warmth of the [imperial] predator’s mouth. In other words, some captives forget that the imperial predator’s mouth gets warm because empire is eating and heating up from prey on the continent. (De-)Militarisation, Transnational Land Grabs and Restitution in an Age of the New Scramble for Africa: A Pan African Socio-Legal Perspective is a book that knocks on key aspects relating to land, militarisation, a PostAfrican World Order and a chaotic Post-God World Order, which require critical scholarly and policy attention in the quest to free Africa from centuries-old imperial depredations. The book carefully navigates the imperial entrapments which are designed to focus African attention only on decolonising African minds without also engaging in the [imperially more unsettling] decolonisation of African materialities.

What are the origins of slavery and race-based prejudice in the mainland American colonies? How did the Atlantic slave trade operate to supply African labor to colonial America? How did African-American culture form and evolve? How did the American Revolution affect men and women of African descent? Previous editions of this work depicted African-Americans in the American mainland colonies as their contemporaries saw them: as persons from one of the four continents who interacted economically, socially, and politically in a vast, complex Atlantic world. It showed how the society that resulted in colonial America reflected the mix of Atlantic cultures and that a group of these people eventually used European ideas to support creation of a favorable situation for those largely of European descent, omitting Africans, who constituted their primary labor force. In this fourth edition of African Americans in the Colonial Era: From African Origins through the American Revolution, acclaimed scholar Donald R. Wright offers new interpretations to provide a clear understanding of the Atlantic slave trade and the nature of the early African-American experience. This revised edition incorporates the latest data, a fresh Atlantic perspective, and an updated bibliographical essay to thoroughly explore African-Americans’ African origins, their experience crossing the Atlantic, and their existence in colonial America in a broadened, more nuanced way.

To date conservation in Africa has been very much the domain of the biologist, but the current ecological crisis in Africa and the failure of past conservation approaches many of which were exogenous in nature demands a radical new appraisal of conventional practices. This book provides a new inter-disciplinary look at the practice of Biodiversity conservation in Africa. It brings together understanding of conservation from a cultural perspective hence bringing social scientists, anthropologists, historians and conservation biologists for the first time. The book sheds light on the previously neglected but critically important social aspects of conservation thinking in Africa that includes indigenous knowledge, belief and practices. This new approach to conservation, the book argues, cannot deal simply with the survival of wildlife and species habitats, for the future of African wildlife is intimately tied to the future of African rural communities. The book emphasizes an urgent need for rethinking and revision of the past conservation approaches so that a new approach borrowing from a cultural perspective is promoted not as a competitive approach but rather a complementary one.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - Economic Policy, grade: 73%, University of Pretoria, course: International Relations, language: English, abstract: The concept of social learning by Peter Hall has created a wide scholarship which supports the fact that a paradigm shift in a policy change could successfully occur through the promotion of knowledge and new ideas instead of a focus on power relations of the influencers of policy. This research paper operationalizes the concept of social learning in the context of the relationship of Bretton woods institutions and African countries. The paper assumes that the failure of the paradigm of neo-liberalism which was imposed by the Bretton woods institutions in their focus on institutional power relations, hegemony and hierarchy to African countries means that the African continent needs a paradigm shift in its countries' public policy, especially in its countries' macro-economic policies. Scholars have published their dissatisfaction with neo-liberalism as they claim that it impacted the African countries negatively and further worsened their economic crisis instead of stabilizing it. The paper proposes the application of the concept of social learning in the process of policy formulation by African countries so as to reach a paradigm shift, replacing the paradigm of neo-liberalism with an African produced paradigm.

This is the story of my personal journey from childhood, up until the present day.

For some of us, myself included, chronic illness can be a cruel and painful road that we're unfortunately forced to walk alone. For in that place we spend far too many years suffering in total isolation where perceptions, prejudices and ignorance dominate every facet of our mortal being. Few of us know however that the majority of chronic illnesses results from our body moving into chronic Toxic state. But let me be very clear here, that toxicity is not a manifestation of a weak psychology it is always the derivative of disease and that is FACT.

This book examines the impact of chronic illness on the experiences of motherhood. The data for this examination derives from qualitative interviews with mothers with multiple sclerosis (MS). The interview questions for the qualitative research study focused on issues per­taining to the impact MS has had on chronically-ill women's per­ceptions of mothering, identity, the body, and the medical establish­ment. This research contributes to scholarship on feminist analysis of mothering, identity, and health care. This work argues that despite facing barriers to empowerment met in essentialized views of mother­hood, a social lack of knowledge about chronic illness, and hier­archical health-care models, mothers with multiple sclerosis empower themselves to care for their bodies, the needs of their families, and to incorporate the changes MS introduces to their lives in meaningful ways.

Identity is an essential existential constituent of the reality of existents.Inthe period of colonialism there developed self understood African cultural identity with two dimension: one related to the African to his/her fellows, the other to Europeans. Joyce Cary's colonialist accounts of African history from a European point of view is reflected through an analysis of pre-colonial Africa, British interaction with Africa and the consequent exploitation, African nationalism, independence and the subsequent disillusionment with independence. However, while focusing on Europe, cary does not hesitate to depict the Yoruba historical perspective. In addition to references to Yoruba history, Cary examines overt resistance to imperialism. Cary's novels calls up imperial preconceptions to underline their foolishness and the foolishness of a Europe that does not see a humanized colonies and its colonies' abilities.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2014 in the subject Nursing Science, Florida International University, Modesto A. Maidique Campus (Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing & Health Sciences), course: Nursing & Research, language: English, abstract: In light of the present-day obesity crisis, this study describes the impact of demographic, cognitive, behavioral, and biological factors on health outcomes in pre-menopausal and menopausal African American women living in rural South Carolina.The data suggests that obesity and related chronic diseases can be, in fact, curbed by a better-informed public, a shift in body-awareness and a deeper understanding of the sociocultural heritage and our relationship to food in general. As a groundbreaking study within this high-risk population, it also puts in perspective to what extent these factors are driven by the socioeconomic status of the women.The findings from this research place renewed urgency on interactive strategies in education and the healthcare field in order to better equip African American women in rural areas with the tools to confront obesity and related chronic diseases.

This qualitative study is an attempt to explore the adaptive experiences of elderly Chinese caregivers who have to take care of their spousal partners who are suffering from Alzheimer’s disease (AD). As the illness is known to be chronic and degenerative in nature, caregivers are thus faced with many stressful situations and adjustments are necessary. In fact, participants of the study often utilized more than one strategy in adjusting to their situations. The six aspects of adjustments are thus put together in this study as an integrated model of life adaptation and survival tactics adopted by elderly Chinese AD spousal caregivers. Also, whether these caregivers are successful in adapting depends on their abilities to accept changes in themselves and their environment, and achieve a compromise between the two. Based on the findings, a culturally sensitive perspective is thus put forward to enhance the understanding of studied phenomenon within the contemporary Chinese context. Recommendations are also made regarding the needed policy changes and the revisions of social work practices in support of the elderly suffering from AD and their caregiving spouses.

The diagnosis of a chronic illness can separate a person’s timeline into two spaces: the before and the after the onset of the disease.For this author it is Parkinson’s Disease. The disease has been with her for 20 years. For the first few years the relationship between her and Parkinson’s remains moderate. But the symptoms gradually become worse. And the battle begins. Her psychoanalytic practice has to close. Patients are referred to colleagues. Her days and nights consist of dualistic power battles, of feelings of resignation, or of enduring the hours when her body freezes and she becomes a statue, at the mercy of Parkinson’s Disease.This book is a descriptive narrative of the re-shaping of this state through learning an unfamiliar pattern of relating, through acquiring a consciousness—and an experience— of an intimate autonomy. From the initial port of a relating pattern with Parkinson’s Disease consisting of the usual fight, flight, freeze or the book’s new ‘fall’ structural methodology, the author takes off on a voyage harboring cryptic intimations about being “with” an illness, about a less ego accentuated interacting. This remarkable transmutation happens gradually. A re-molding takes place during the course of an eight year journey. The nucleus of this book is a descriptive narrative of this journey, of a voyage to the paradoxical space of an intimate autonomy.Even though The Hiss of Hope is about living with a chronic disease, the book does not dwell on a life of su...

It has been widely reported that issues related to organizational context appear frequently in discussions of information systems success. The statement that the information system did not fit the behavioral context in an organization is often part of the explanation of why particular information system encountered unanticipated resistance and never met expectation. While this context has been intensively studied, we still lack evidence on how this organizational context is affecting the success of information system from a managerial action perspective. This type of managerial involvement is often neglected to the extent that it became an essential obstacle to organizational performance. The objective of Creating a Culture for Information Systems Success is to assist CIOs and IT managers on how to use their managerial actions to create a suitable cultural environment in the organization, which leads to a successful implementation of information systems. This book will also provide guidelines for managers on how to create this organizational context, measure it, and ensure it leads to a successful implementation and use of information systems. The main theme is to explain how behavioral context of an organization led by their managers and executives would lead to the success of the information systems function.
