Pleasuring the Senses - Curing Depression


Pleasure Healing and Psycho-sexual Progression Coaching are to be sure totally natural and drug free therapies that are proving to provide long term relief for depression and anxiety suffers. Unarguably depression causes not only the sufferer great distress, but their friends, work colleagues and family also bear the brunt of illness also. And what is worse is that the numbers suffering debilitating depression and anxiety disorders are growing at alarming rates. However depression is not any way shape or form, a new disease, but rather this mood disorder indeed plagued both sexes of all generations, throughout recorded history.  

Today whether sufferers are diagnosed as clinically depressed or suffering bipolar, most are usually prescribed drug therapy by their doctors; which may or may not include some type of regression or cognitive therapy, (commonly known as counseling.) Now many health professionals agree that drugs are necessary in cases where the sufferers is so severely depressed that they are threatening to kill themselves, or otherwise harm others.  However the use of artificial mind and sense-numbing solutions has rarely if ever, equated to a sustainable cure for depression or anxiety, over the longer-term for any sufferer. 

In contrast, body workers and sense healers, trained in pleasure healing, work with their clients who suffer depression and anxiety, in such a way as to clear the root of the illness in an effort to provide sustained recovery of their joy, energy and well-being. Logically our next question then is, what is the root of depression? To answer this question let us look first at the symptoms of the dis-ease.  For most suffers, cycles of lethargy equating to a chronic lack of energy, would rate highest on their lists. Scattered thought, lack of motivation and the inability to focus on carrying out even the most basic daily living functions, also rate high as common traits for depressive illnesses.


Intriguing a most often overlooked fact is that most suffers also share a feeling that all their senses including sight, sound, smell and taste, along with sensitivity to touch are dulled and significantly experienced as being' flat' during a cycle of depression.  For the majority of depression suffers, this feeling of numbness, extends way beyond their moods and sensitivity to actually feeling paralyzed in certain parts of the body. In contrast when a sufferer comes out of depression, they usually report a heightened arousal, or feeling state. Keep in mind though, for now, we are only discussing the symptoms of depression, rather than the cause of the symptoms.

Now in an effort to help clients understand this chronic 'Armoring' that is likely to be the underlying cause of their dulled senses; a little game I like to play is to pinch them lightly in different parts of their body. While I am doing this, I keep asking them to show me where their mind is located. Immediately most people point to their head and insist that their mind, lives only in their brains.  Still I keep pinching, and pinching, until finally a client is moved beyond that illusion. After a bit of  a rethink, the majority arrive at the truth, which is that the 'mind receptors' reside in every part of the body - and therefore is never ever, separate from it.

Certainly once one comes to know the capacity and extended reaches and regions of the mind, one is then able to recognize that the entire sense-system of the body- is the mind. In fact the mind and the sense system are so functionally related to each other that it is unfathomable to think it possible to separate or wall off even the slightest 'sense of a sense,' from being taken in and absorbed by the mind.

And vice versa; to believe what manifests in the mind does not manifest in the sense system, is utterly senseless.

Hence we arrive at the precise explanation of the root cause of depression and anxiety disorders.  When either a sense, or even as little as a 'sensation of a sense' is walled off or repressed, in effect a part of our mind is walled off and repressed also. In essence this state of walling off and repression of our senses is equivalent to chopping a leg off of our mind.  Of course when we do, the mind becomes literally imbalanced; and as a result, it burrows down into the deep dark hole of senselessness.


The next logical question to ask is: what causes a person to wall off, or repress a sensation, or even a whole sense faculty? Again, I will endeavor to explain this very complex condition in simple layman’s terms.  Commonly when a person perceives, remembers or just plain senses the sense stimuli coming at him or her is painful, shameful, alien or overwhelming and therefore is unable to be processed, both the natural and the learnt defense system are activated. When this occurs, the senses armor up; and either fight or take flight, away from the perceived sense dangerous and therefore what it perceives as damaging stimuli. 

As a further example to explain 'sense armoring', those with Asperger’s and Autism are very apt at walling off stimuli that is perceived as far too complex for their senses to process.  Very cleverly, those with Asperger's or degrees of Autism learn to shut out stimuli that they cannot process by withdrawing, or otherwise by generating their own familiar stimuli; such as rocking or shaking or making monotone repetitious sounds.

Similarly a normal person will do the same, but in more subtle ways. Rationally though, let us remember that all this flurry of selecting or rejecting stimuli takes a great deal of energy to properly process; especially when we realize that our senses are not as easily switched on, or off, as a light bulb.


Anxiety Disorders


Now Anxiety Disorders are not a completely different kettle of fish to depression - both are sensitivity disorders. In contrast to depression where the senses are locked down tight, the root cause of anxiety disorders are that the whole of the sense network remains on high alert instead of switching off and coming to a state of relaxation; which of course is man's natural state.
 
For some this high alert tension is experienced, close to every second of the day and night, causing their senses to stand at attention, ready to fight or flee the outside stimuli. Essentially when a person suffers from an anxiety disorder, the sense moderator is dysfunctional. A person suffering a sense-disorder of this type, obsessively goes hard at defending every perceived stimuli; that is until they literally become exhausted and shut down.
 

Care, clearing & reconditioning the sense receptors


 Often when coaching clients with sense disorders, I use the example of their motor vehicles needing proper care, maintenance and fuel to function effectively to carry them from A to B reliably.  Essentially our body and mind are no different. Repairing the function of a damaged or dysfunctional sense system, holistically and without the use of drugs is possible; though I confess, no quick fix.

Yet it is a cure that far more effective in treating the underlying causes of depression, compared to just numbing the senses with barbiturates or 'talk therapy' such as counselling or psychotherapy.  Certainly the holistic natural approach of pleasure healing, which consists of pleasurably stimulating the body's sense system, has proven to result in a sustainable long term cure for those who are able to sustain a commit to the discipline of self-care.

Learning to listen to our senses, so they do not have to scream and rage against us to receive our attention is the first process in the recovery of healthy sense receptors... read more
