  1. @Andrea Marchetti Actually it's reversed: it's how a person sees these concepts and methods that tells you his/her level of development.
  2. What has been done, has been done. You can't go back. It's normal to feel like that, but remember that you also can move on. Maybe this is a challenge God/the Universe/etc. made you face in order to grow: you were meant to experience this situation. It's all planned, like new age people like to say. The very fact that you regret the work done is the first obstacle of the challenge. When life gets tough, may your love be tougher.
  3. Could you elaborate on these ones or the logic behind them? How are you so sure?
  4. @integral If she wants understanding, Complex PTSD. If she wants exercises to do, The Completion Process or Shadow Before Dawn. Keep in mind that there could be more powerful books, these are suggestions from my experience.
  5. Shamanic Breathing, Inner Child Work, Psychotherapy, ect. Basically any form of healing.
  6. @billiesimon Many philosophers were heavily academic and technical, which can hinder from spirituality.
  7. @Rinne It's possible, but it depends on how you define your goal. The more you heal, the more stuff from your subconscious appears that you may want to address. There is no end to healing. Because the subconscious is infinite, spiritually speaking. Becuase healing is coming closer to God. But it's also true that what happens changes you. I don't know if all changes can be reversible. There are some changes that could be reversible, but need more than a single life of efforts to heal, so they are considered fixed. Or there could be changes that require years, but it's not practical to tackle them, it's more practical to learn to integrate them in your everyday life. So in the end it boils down to how bad do you want it, how much is it valuable to you and how much time and energy are you willing to spend on it.
  8. @Leo Gura I see. Thanks
  9. Didn't Hegel devalue the role of intuition and higher state of consciousness? Didn't he firmly believe that reason was higher than intuition? I have a friend of mine who chose philosophy at university, and he told me this. Which I always found odd, because the stuff he talks about is clearly Consciousness.
  10. @integral Alright, let's do this. All I'll say will be a generalization, it will be partial and possibly wrong, because I've got little info. Nonetheless don't take what I'll write for granted. First of all, you need to be extra caring. Being through what she has been through that destroys her trust in men and manhood (the literal idea of men). She might behave in a receptive manner to what you say, but deep down you don't know how much she fears men and how much a shell of a person she is. She might behave like that because she is so paralyzed that she has put so many metaphorical walls to keep people from seeing into her and her hurt. She could be in a serious state of prolonged shock, which she is covering up unconsciously, emotionally speaking. She might be aware mentally of what happened, but the emotions could not be there, because she has blocked them or she has dissociated from them so much that she is numb to the pain and any emotion regarding the event. You have to be super attuned to her and her needs. She might listen to what you suggest, but she's 13, she's too young to understand, and also she was raped, which adds a huge block to her ability to be mature and understand she needs help. I think she won't be ready soon to start healing. You have to be patient. VERY patient. A huge thing you could do is finding a serious FEMALE (preferably) therapist, someone with the skills to deal with sexual abuse, PTSD and C-PTSD (complex-PTSD, which involves developmental trauma), and everything connected, and talking to the therapist about her situation (without her there), and seeing what could be done. For example, you could plan this with the therapist, if the therapist thinks this could be a good idea: you make the therapist and the girl meet casually (you might need to be there), with the intent of giving her the opportunity to have a safe relationship without the fear of feeling "being hospitalized". If you want to give her informations and perspectives, I highly suggest you learn for yourself first. First of all, this teaches you how serious the situation is. Second, this teaches you how to better caretake her. Third, how do you know which info she needs? Fourth, you have responsibilities to how you treat her. You might be the only safe relationship she has. Going into the practical stuff, here's the frameworks, ideas and methods worth learning (in no particular order): C-PTSD Inner Child Work Parts Work (gestalt therapy) Somathic Experiencing (SE) EDMR Rosen Work Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) Tension, Stress and Trauma Release Exercises (TRE) Here are some books I read on trauma that could be helpful: Shadows Before Dawn, by Teal Swan: this has a story of abuse inside, which could provide a new perspective and a frame of reference for healing. But on the other side if she's not ready the story could traumatize her more. The Completion Process, by Teal Swan: this has a poweful exercise which she could not be ready for, but still this book is invaluable because it teaches how trauma and trauma healing work. Trauma and Memory: Brain and Body in a Search for the Living Past, by Peter A. Levine & Bessel A. Van Der Kolk: this book provides stories and a powerful model for dealing with trauma. Complex PTSD: From Surviving To Thriving, by Pete Walker: book with extensive theory on trauma, and some good exercises. Healing the Shame That Binds You, by John Bradshaw: book with extensive theory on shame based trauma. This integrates greatly with the book by Pete Walker. The Body Keeps The Score, by Bessel Van Der Kolk: book with theory on psychosomatic effects of trauma. If she's ready to heal, the first thing she needs is SAFENESS. This means she has to re-gain safeness in her body, in her mind, in her emotions, in her relationships, in her environment. So exercises like grounding exercises or emotional vipassana could be useful, or some other type of body-based healing work. If you'd like more info, check out my posts. I may have additional resources or info on trauma.
  11. Would a person with a very high state of consciousness be able to change something like his/her hand and make this change permament after the peak state wears off?
  12. @Michael569 Cool, thanks!
  13. @Michael569 Have you found anything about microwaves producing AGEs?
  14. @integral Take a look at this videos, which can give you an understanding of hidden or lesser known mechanics of myopia: But that's just the beginning, a partial piece of the puzzle. There is more. Check out this video: Here the guy talks about a great insight (no pun intended) to the myopia problem. Really, I was amazed by the discovery. Put all perspective together and you realize that myopia is very complex and nuanced, and with the right approach can be at least partially reversed. For more info from the forum, check out these posts: (you can also directly search on the forum for "miopia", "myopia", "eyesight", "vision", "eye", etc.) Other resources: https://www.seeing.org/techniques/ and this video:
