    Thank you for this Kevin. All the best to Natasha. I do hear voices from time to time – always with useful information – occasionally life-saving information for others.

    I wrote to you at least once before that many of the people I saw at one of your workshops were psychically open and did not know how to navigate the territory – drugs were making them ‘worse’

    A voice-hearer and cutter lost her compulsion to cut and her voices almost disappeared when she went on a gluten-free diet. She had childhood sexual abuse trauma – a good therapist could have removed that from her energy field. She did not cut herself for one full year and was not hospitalized during that year. She also got rid of her diabetes. Unfortunately – on the advice of a psychiatrist giving her ‘nutritional guidance’ – she went back on grains (gluten) and the voices came back and she started cutting again – she was hospitalized, given ECT and died. She was just over 30 years old.

    • Hi Maie, thank you.
      I don’t think it’s what you mean but your message could be interpreted as inferring people hear voices because they eat grains, which would be a bit bonkers.

      People hear voices – many do and most will at some point- and most of them are fine – or at least ok.

      Many people struggle with taboo experiences like voices because they’ve been trained to do so by society’s stories that experiences voices are all bad so that means if they hear voices then they must be bad too.
      And that is such a load of Bollocks..

      Some do feel disempowered by their experience and do suffer. My observation is that people who feel disempowered by their experience of voices also feel disempowered in other areas of their lives – often as result of having being wounded by life experiences – that T word, eh?

      The primary damage caused by trauma is in the ability to form relationships, with others, self(s) and our environment.

      I’m with you, eating shyte can rob our energy- or give us so much we slip into rage – made all the more difficult because not feeling great leads many folks to seek succour in eating shyte.And millions is spent on designing and promoting foods that encourage that pattern.

      Likewise, eating well – as well as a bunch of other things- can give us enough energy to handle whatever comes our way.

      Life, eh?

      Thanks for the article/ resource.
