Lately, I’ve been feeling terrible. My heart rate is between 112-149, I have a lot of ectopic beats and I feel like I’m on crack. My first guess, as a physician, was that the LDN I’ve been taking has been curing my Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and now the amount of thyroid supplement I’m taking is way too much. I got my lab results back and, yep, I’m hyperthyroid. So, I’m going to stop taking my thyroid and will check my labs in a few weeks. So LDN is amazing for autoimmune and inflammatory conditions!!
Today, we interviewed Howard Hughes. I forgot that Emma canceled a couple of weeks ago, and he was on our session plan. I’ll get to John Denver next week. We also had a long session on dreams! It was fascinating as was the Hughes interview.
Monday at 7 PM CT is Erik’s Hour of Enlightenment radio show. Call 619-639-4606 15 minutes prior to talk to Erik. http://goo.gl/aFHTzJ Topic: How to live with a narcissist, even if that narcissist is you!
Enjoy today’s Best of Erik and have a great weekend, peeps!
Me: Why do people always talk about soul mates or twin flames? To me those are titles, but very few understand the true meaning of those relationships. Can you give us a simplified explanation, and also tell us why we have such a huge connection with some people but yet we never see them again? The feelings don’t stop. The emotions are still there, but the actual manifestation of the person is gone.
Jamie (laughing): Don’t, Erik! Erik’s joking, and he’s saying, “Oh, they’re an asshole. You just didn’t know it at the time.” He’s joking.
Erik: A lot of the time, there are the road signs. You know, you drive by them on the highway; they give you direction. They’re in the right spot; they give you accurate information. If they weren’t there, you’d get lost, but you keep on moving. That was their purpose, in that moment in time, to encourage you to be a better you, and the moment moves on. Why would you be selfish enough to think that that person should stay in your life long term because it was magical for a moment.
Erik: Stay in the moment. Stay in the now, cuz it constantly changes. You know, we choke a lot of—
Jamie (to Erik): Choke? You said choke. Yeah.
Erik: We choke a lot of situations from their magic.
Jamie: We choke the magic from a lot of situations. That’s how you should say it, Erik.
Erik (laughing softly): Oh, now you’re my verbal editor!
Jamie and I giggle.
Jamie (to Erik): That’s exactly what I am! I’m your verbal editor!
Me: There we go!
Jamie: Ha ha!
Erik: Ahem. All right. Getting back to it.
Jamie: Okay. Fine. He wants to be funny when HE’S funny, but when I come up with something funny, mm mm.
Me: It’s too much.
Erik: So, if you don’t stay in the moment, in the now, and how it constantly changes so you adapt. You’re always in the now. If you’re hanging on to a moment, then all of a sudden, you’re living in the past.
Erik: Yeah, because now is constantly growing, and if you’re hanging on to one of the nows, BOOM, all of a sudden it’s the past. So, this person feels like, “Oh, I didn’t get what I needed,” or “The moment went by,” or “It was too late.” It’s such bullshit. You’re just deciding to live in the past.
Me: Okay, so—
Erik talks at the same time, so I say, ‘Oh, go ahead.’
Jamie: I don’t know. He’s talking about “Lay-ow,” “Lay-o”? Some famous quote. Lao? He’s talking about if you’re living in the past, living in the future and the present. If you’re anxiety, you’re living in the future, and if you’re feeling depressed, you’re living in the past. If you’re feeling at peace, you’re living in the present.
Me: Interesting. That’s so true.
Erik: That’s a person’s name. Lao. L-A-O.
Me: So, basically, she’s talking about a soul mate. Soul mates don’t have to stick with us an entire lifetime. They can have little contracts, come in and do their thing and leave. That doesn’t mean they’re not, uh, basically, look, we’re eternal beings. They’re not going to be forever gone. She has to have that understanding. But to her, it feels like some sort of death in a way. We love them, but we can’t see them all the time—throughout the rest of our human life.
Erik: That’s not a punishment.
Me: Yeah. It doesn’t mean they’re gone forever. They’re soul mates. They’re eternal. She has to look at it from that perspective.
I love this passage:
If you are depressed,
you are living in the past.
If you are anxious,
you are living in the future.
If you are at peace,
you are living in the present.
