It’s been a while since I last blogged. A lot is happening or beginning to happen, so I was waiting on something more concrete to report on but I’ll sum up some of it real quick right now.
A new mentor I have found was saying something very interesting and that is.
Every Negative, if you look closely has a Positive right next to it.
The paradox nature of life. Every negative situation has already the positive counter part that comes with it.
In this light. We are constantly showered with blessings by the divine. It’s only our egoic perception that blocks our ability to see this.
Michael Brown (Presence Process author) has also said, “Thank you is the only prayer”
So what has happened with me through the Presence Process and Inner Integrity is that I became very focused on the problems.
I didn’t know what to do. I just sat there day by day and just sat with my problems.
I became intimate with them.
I became really present with my self conscious/self esteem issues that had to do with my physical body.
I had gotten braces at age 18, and I had over crowding, and my doctor told me I didn’t have the option to expand the dental arches since I was too old so I had 4 bicuspids removed to create space. I got the traditional train track braces that closed the gap.
2 years later, the braces came off and I was never really satisfied with the outcome. What had happened was my arch was narrow before but getting the bicuspids removed to straighten teeth had increasingly narrowed my arch. I had straight teeth but the arch was narrow. I had thought that I had to change my thinking around this and get over it internally, but I was never successful at that. I was sort of always trying to cover up my self consciousness about it, I suppose I was even ashamed to have those feelings because I was thinking I had to “love myself” whatever that meant, and at the time I had thought it was about only having positive feelings about myself. but as Sri Bhagavan has said, that is white washing the fact, like putting a rug over a spill… It will soon start stinking.
Finally something happened when I really began confronting what I was really feeling. I very naturally and calmly, went on google and started researches about palate expansion.
Came across number of topics and some horrendous stories of people that had tooth extractions for orthodontics resulting in very serious consequences.
I don’t want to go into all those details here but basically I found solutions to the problem.
Adult palate expansion is possible. and it was being done with phenomenal results. But I found far more than that.
I had found blogs by couple of guys that were on a journey of “physical restructuring”.
They had similar orthodontic treatment as I had, and had teeth extractions resulting in terrible results. The face collapses because of bone loss, and that causes a change in nervous system and the brain because it affects the whole skull.
This can cause depression, and other changes in personality.
Now I’m not a doctor so I can’t really say if all of this is true or not but what’s interesting is as these guys are correcting their facial structure they are seeing tremendous changes in personality.
There is just a lot here for me to explain in one blog post but basically the treatment these guys are using to attain these result is NCR, Palate expansion (like the homeoblock or DNA appliance), and face pulling.
Don’t quote me on the following, this is just some of the things they claim but to me makes total sense.
What they claim is that beauty is a function of great symmetry.
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” is a false statement spouted by ugly people to feel better about their lot in life.”
“The fact is that there is an irrefutable standard of beauty based on golden mean geometry, and an irrefutable standard of sexual attractiveness based on facial symmetry!”
“Going Back In Time, We Can See Beauty Has Always Been Beauty”
“Many of the self esteem issues are just simply issues of not being good looking enough.”
“Self-esteem is a function of symmetry”
—-Every Negative, Has a Positive Next to it.
The problem here is that my facial symmetry was greatly compromised by poor orthodontic treatment. Although I have “straight teeth” according to orthodontist’s point of view, it has caused a collapse of the face, and other complications far more than I may have realized. In the realms of emotional/nervous system perspective.
The solution, new forms of effective physical therapy that looks at the entire skull. Therapies that begin to correct facial symmetry by creating new bone growth.
As mentioned above these new physical therapies are: NCR(Neuro Cranial Restructuring), DNA appliance, and more new therapy called Face pulling.
The Possibility here is to achieve the golden ratio of facial structure. What god originally intended my face to look. Golden ratio = optimal function = optimal beauty.
To not only reverse the damages caused by tooth extraction, but to improve facial symmetry far beyond what I had even before extractions.
I’m dabbling at the beginning stages of this process. I should have much more to report soon.
