MY ELBERT: EVERYONE LEARNS BETTER EMBRACING REVOLUTIONARY TEACHING IS The first Specialized Online Coaching Curriculum. I’ve spent the last 20 years perfecting an alternative, holistic approach to correcting learning differences, including, but not limited to, Dyslexia and Neurodevelopmental differences (view the “why” behind My Elbert below …view program HERE).
After twenty-five years of being in education, I provide tutoring, consulting, and coaching on dyslexia and other neurodevelopmental differences. Over the last 15 years, I’ve observed an increasing amount of affective, behavioral, sensorial, cognitive, physical, mental, and spiritual difficulties and differences along with an increased number of children being medicated, misdiagnosed, or going undiagnosed; Therefore, I have developed a neuropedagogy that includes my observations and evaluations that looks at the “whole person” using empirical science and holistic wisdom. Where learning is concerned, the “whole person” is important because people are different and so many learn differently. My neuropedgogy allows neuroscience, psychology, and education to come into an authentic practice. It really looks at how we all process information differently in space and interconnected time; in brief, we are all wired with dissimilarity for which each neural pathway is connected differently to process the same information that we all can receive. My current practice is a holistic approach to discovery of inner-being, spiritual-growth, and aims to learn how to stimulate new zones of the brain, and increase self-directed neuroplasticity, and create connections (neuropathways) for learning to be successful. Furthermore, it is targeted at naturally stimulating the brains of all types of learners, not only those with students who have learning disabilities.
The Problem: We are seeing children/adults digress with gulf-sized disconnect and low self-esteem. Each child/adult is multidimensional and ALL our systems and senses need to function equalized, activated, and balanced for learning to take place. The triune brain which is the neomammalian complex (RAS- aka neocortex), midbrain (pons- aka limbic system), and forebrain (thymus aka reptilian) is working on a downward function, which makes learning chaotic in the mind. People are using their mental and emotional bodies to learn, not their etherical body (etheric).
The Solution: When using the etherical body, ALL our faculties, systems, and senses will function equalized, activated, and balanced. The triune brain needs to be working in an upward function (no longer perform in a protective function). With a functional upward system, the child [or adult] can trust themselves and their gifts and learning uniquenesses through spiritual mindset with self-directed neuroplasticity through ABC’s and gain God awareness (eventually unity) through PYAM Daily. They’re offered the freedom arising from conditions within the brain, senses, or sense organs and not directly caused not by external stimuli but the knowing with-in themselves which is patience for understanding and trusting in their subjective, divergent mind.
What is a Subjective Mind? Subjective mind, which wants to comprehend the world by self realization, consciousness and is open to different interpretations of same objects viewed through different lenses. [Retrieved from https://medium.com/all-things-philosophical/subjective-and-objective-63465fa88fd4].
What is Self Realization? How can we achieve this state of Being for ourselves? Self Realization is a term that is becoming increasingly more widely used. In many ways it is an obscure term, and its meaning is not immediately apparent. For many it is a term that means the same as ‘Enlightenment’ – a word which is similarly something difficult to determine. However the term ‘Self Realization’ is more useful as it actually refers to a very specific stage in the journey of awakening that Ramana Maharshi and others described.

What Is Conscience? Billy Graham’s Daily Devotion Nov 09, 2021 Having a good conscience . . . –1 Peter 3:16 What is conscience? God has put within each one of us something that cries aloud against us, whenever we do that which we know to be wrong. Conscience is the detective that watches the direction of our steps and decries every conscious transgression. Conscience is a vigilant eye before which each imagination, thought, and act, is held up for either censure or approval. I believe there is no greater argument for the existence of God in the world today than conscience. There is no greater proof of the existence of a moral law and Lawgiver in the universe than this little light of the soul. It is God’s voice to the inner man. Conscience is our wisest counselor and teacher, our most faithful and most patient friend.
My motivation is to inform schools, organizations, and their families, who consider themselves weak or weary with challenges of nerurodiversity and learning uniquenesses, by implementing and working with teachers, specialist, and families through social media, courses/speaking engagements, book sales, coaching/consulting, and outreach all with my internationally recognized program! As well as, I would like to share a little about myself and how I can help you by consulting and/or training! I have dyslexia and struggled with anger/shame due to LD (view My Story Of Dyslexia: HERE); My neuropedagogy is based on the following: my own inductive and divergent reasoning (self-actualization and consciousness), logic of evaluation because my deficit in language and early development in visual-spacial outside-of-the box problem-solving skills, detective sense contributed to my own gift of dyslexia, gift of knowledge and wisdom (discernment), countless hours of student observations, philosophy including ontology and (w)holism, neuroscientific, neuropsychology, educational research, and studies along with my perpetual care for children.
I am also searching to tell my story/testimony of dyslexia by coaching, training and consulting opportunities by inform schools, organizations, and their families. I’m also interested in connecting with professionals all over the world with common interests related to alternative and holistic education such as: explicit instruction, neurodiversity awareness, emotional agility, epigenetics, neuropedagogy, self-directed neuroplasticity, literacy tutoring, learning differences, positive mindset and positive learning environments. This deep desire for change in education on a global level has prompted me to share more about my reasoning for My ELBERT program. Again, what I’m presenting to you guys in this program with an ‘alternative perspective’ not a typical one, because I’ve definitely have a divergent mind not a typical one personally. I’m not your traditional academia type educator (even though my extensive resume says otherwise- see HERE) in the least due to my experiences with growing up neurodifference, eventually, had taught me to train and trust mind, body, spirit connection to optimize learning. So please do not hesitate to contact me. I’m online but willing to travel.
In my experience, everyone Who Excels In Learning Has Developed A Unique Sense Of Trust In Themselves, Their Gifts, & How They Process Information!! -Tricia Cook
Again, speaking of the “whole person”- we know epigenetics relating to learning influences of intergenerational anger and shame have the ability of being healed and determines which genes will be expressed and how their own systems will function. The main goal is to heal our very own DNA holistically through exercises and activities which block or ease the production of specific inflammatory proteins (toxicity) excreted by the gut-brain axis, decreasing biochemical reactions that happen between the Pineal, Pituitary, Adrenal & Carotid Glands along with by activating and aligning the Thymus (via vagus nerve chakra) and Pons, RAS & ACC/HPA (energy centers-wheels- alta major and soma chakras) causing decrease in deficiencies while regulating our own biofields (including electromagnetic fields). This is the divine stamp where you are regulated and experiencing harmony, honor, wisdom, and becoming devoted to your purpose including but not limited to: love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. ‘ Galatians 5:22-23 https://www2.bible.com/bible/111/GAL.5.22-23
You need to, again, speaking of the “whole child”- you need to examine every aspect of their learning, not just the end goal or result which is literacy and their appropriate learning behavior. Anonymous author, “DNA works by way of the same principles as the mind and neurons of the brain and body.” Ways to look at neurodifferences holistically: observe and take observational notes on the child…50% Nature- 50% Nurture for which you will read here all about, and I focus on epigenetics, self-directed neuroplasticity, and neuropedgagogy. What Is Epigenetics? Epigenetics is the study of how your behaviors and environment can cause changes that affect the way your genes work. Unlike genetic changes, epigenetic changes are reversible and do not change your DNA sequence, but they can change how your body reads a DNA sequence or even “silences” certain genes.

Epigenetics comes to Life: Neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) encompass a broad group of conditions characterized by alterations in the development of the central nervous system (CNS), resulting in varying degrees of cognitive and/or behavioral symptoms. Several conditions are grouped under the diagnosis of NDD, including intellectual disability (ID), learning disorders, communication disorders, motor disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum condition (ASC), epileptic encephalopathies (EE), and schizophrenia (SZ) [1, 2]. In the “Journal Nature Neuroscience”: Intelligence ‘Networks’ Discovered In Brain For The First Time, 2015-“Remarkably, they found that some of the same genes [M1 & M3] HERE that influence human intelligence in healthy people were also the same genes that cause impaired cognitive ability and epilepsy when mutated.” “Also, studies show that autistic people have a 20% risk of having epilepsy and that people with epilepsy have a 20% chance of being autistic. The reason for this may be that the effects of epilepsy and autism spectrum condition (ASC) on brain structure and function overlap. Chromosome 12-GRIN2B The NMDA receptors mediate a slow -permeable component of excitatory synaptic transmission in the central nervous system. The early expression of this gene in development suggests a role in brain development, circuit formation, synaptic plasticity, and cellular migration and differentiation. Naturally occurring mutations within this gene are associated with neurodevelopmental disorders including autism spectrum condition, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, epilepsy, and schizophrenia. Autism spectrum condition (ASC) and dyslexia are both neurodevelopmental disorders with high prevalence in children. These two disorders share common genetic risks remain elusive. DOCK4 (dedicator for cytokinesis 4), a guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) for the small GTPase Rac1, is one of few genes that are associated with both autism spectrum condition (ASC) and dyslexia. Dock4 is important for neuronal development and social behaviors [Retrieved from https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7488083/; https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fncel.2019.00577/full]
What is the Interoceptive System? Having trouble with this sense can also make self-regulation a challenge because of physiological processes related to affective feeling. The interoceptive system [also] has special nerve receptors which are located throughout our bodies including internal organs, bones, muscles, and skin. These receptors send information to the brain. The brain interprets this information and uses it to tell us how we feel. The interoceptive system helps our bodies stay in a state of optimal balance, which is known as homeostasis. [Retrieved from https://occupationaltherapy.com.au/interoception]. Especially, it’s hard for those with Interoceptive Discrimination Disorder (IDD), which is a form of Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), it is very difficult to distinguish internal feelings from external ones.

Note: A study found impaired functional connectivity and autistic-like behaviors in CX3CR1−/− mice lacking responsive microglia (Zhan and others 2014), for example, though this could be due to two reasons: a transient decreased microglial density in postnatal development, or the fractalkine signaling pathway being responsible for the tagging of synapses.

Researchers at Gladstone Institute, have found that calm reduces levels of the protein tau, which is known for its role in Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative conditions, changes excitatory and inhibitory cells in ways that make it harder for the brain to burst with overexcitation. It also promotes the maintain balance in the brain. Previously they showed in mouse models that reducing tau levels makes the brain more resistant to epilepsy of diverse causes.

Cell–cell interactions (CCIs) are physical interactions between two or more cells, which can be mediated by proteins, ligands, sugars or other biomolecules. Protein–protein interactions (PPIs) are physical interaction between two proteins, often involved in structural systems, signal transduction or metabolic processes. Differentially Expressed Genes are identified as more highly (or lowly) expressed in one condition versus the other after comparison of their expression values between two conditions. Genes with restricted, constitutive or unusual pattern of expression are quantified accordingly to their characteristics to avoid miscalculation or underestimation of signals. Operational taxonomic unit—a definition used to classify groups of closely related organisms. DNA sequences can be clustered according to their similarity to one another, and operational taxonomic units are defined based on the similarity threshold (usually 97% similarity) set by the researcher.

Nerve cells in the human brain talk to one another at sites called synapses, where molecules are released to signal to the next cell. When people learn or remember things, this signalling is strengthened. When communication between synapses goes wrong, circuits become broken. The function of nerve cells and synapses depends on proteins that are made using information encoded in genetic material called RNA. It is thought that RNAs are located exactly where and when they are needed for synaptic signalling because some kind of synaptic ‘tag’ labels the correct active synapse. Scientists have recently learned that RNA can have a methyl group/molecule added to one of the RNA bases, which ‘marks’ the RNA message. Such adding of methyl groups can influence proteins binding to DNA or RNA and consequently stop proteins being produced.
This new study shows that RNA marking can be reversed at synapses and hence may act as a ‘synaptic tag’. Synaptic tagging allows the synapse, rather than the nucleus, to be the unit of long-lasting neuronal plasticity. The findings suggest, that if disrupted, this could cause synapses and nerve cells to malfunction by influencing the formation of toxic protein clumps [causing brain injury (deficits) such in the case of Long-Term Potentiation (LTP) and long-term memory (LTM) encoding needed for learning.
These genomic mechanisms involve methyl groups being put on RNA messages and importantly taken off when a synapse is active. The implications are very important for normal brain function, but also for reversible psychiatric mental conditions such as anxiety and addiction disorders and early-stage neurodegenerative diseases such as dementias.” [Retrieved from https://neurosciencenews.com/synapse-neurotransmission-19501/; https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fnhum.2013.00589/full?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Neuroscience-w41-2013].
Synergism represents an efficient means of increasing the amplitude of cellular responses induced by low levels of stimulation. Recently, several kinetic and physicochemical models have been developed to describe and predict synergistic responses. Synergy mainly results from mutations in functionally related genes. In one study, on the etiology of the prevalent defects found with Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS), a systemic autoimmune disease which has cognitive effects, the synergism between aPL and anti-NMDA antibodies were explored and found a direct effect of anti-PL on neuronal cells.

In recent years, large genome-wide association studies have been extremely helpful to identify new genetic risks of psychiatric diseases (e.g. PTSD, SCZ, BP, MDD), and genetic overlapping risks among these disorders and other medical diseases, and traits. A more comprehensive understanding of the genetic overlapping among these disorders is needed to clarify common pathways among diseases, or specific genes (see The Thymus below) uniquely implicated in each disorder.

Biological scientists often want to determine whether two agents or events, for example, extracellular stimuli and/or intracellular signaling pathways, act synergistically when eliciting a biological response. Similarly, the nervous system is highly vulnerable to various internal and external factors which could lead to acute or chronic neurodegeneration. The morphological basis of dysfunction after injury involves loss of integrity of the extracellular matrix, neuronal circuitry, and synaptic activity and plasticity (see Thymus below).
The primary injury enables a huge variety of developmentally-related biomolecules to stimulate the process of regeneration. Extracellular proteins, cell adhesion molecules, neurotrophic factors as well as different organic and inorganic compounds of the nervous tissue are necessary for recovery after injury. However, the secondary injury as well as further degeneration of the surrounding tissue, could be prevented by reactivation and recruitment of a plethora of cell signals, such as growth factors, neurotransmitters, extracellular matrix (see thymus below) proteases , cell adhesion and recognition molecules.

One category of signaling cascade includes receptors to receive signals, kinases (serine/threonine/tyrosine) that phosphorylate proteins, adaptor proteins that bring kinases and substrates together, and transcription factors that alter gene expression as a response to stimuli. Other signaling cascades depend on hormone signaling and their cognate receptors that function as transcriptional regulators. The pathways described here are a small example of how inter- and intracellular signaling is important for development of an organism, sustaining cellular homeostasis, and how aberrations in these pathways can lead to disease.

Note: 15- PCSK6 Chromosome This gene encodes a member of the subtilisin-like proprotein convertase family, which includes proteases that process protein and peptide precursors trafficking through regulated or constitutive branches of the secretory pathway. The encoded protein undergoes an initial autocatalytic processing event in the ER to generate a heterodimer which exits the ER and sorts to the trans-Golgi network where a second autocatalytic event takes place and the catalytic activity is acquired. The encoded protease is constitutively secreted into the extracellular matrix and expressed in many tissues, including neuroendocrine, liver, gut, and brain (see Thymus, Brain & Testes). This gene encodes one of the seven basic amino acid-specific members which cleave their substrates at single or paired basic residues. Some of its substrates include transforming growth factor beta related proteins, proalbumin, and von Willebrand factor. This gene is thought to play a role in tumor progression and left-right patterning. Likewise, 7- RELN This gene encodes a large secreted extracellular matrix protein thought to control cell-cell interactions critical for cell positioning and neuronal migration during brain development. This protein may be involved in schizophrenia, autism, bipolar disorder, major depression and in migration defects associated with temporal lobe epilepsy.

A human with a particularly high measure of SPS is considered to have “hypersensitivity”, or be a highly sensitive person (HSP). See The Theory of Positive Disintegration- those with mental issues as sick (neurosis, anxiety, etc. see original Dabrowski works for an extensive list), the theory proposes that it is the very persons who show those symptoms who have the highest potential for growth and personality development. The strengths of the TPD clearly lie in the different view it gives of certain mental health symptoms.

What is Proteomics?
Proteomics is the large-scale study of proteomes. A proteome is a set of proteins produced in an organism, system, or biological context. … Proteomics is used to investigate: when and where proteins are expressed also the rates of protein production, degradation, and steady-state abundance.
Think about mitochondria and cell health? Also, on a cellular level, think about the Epigenetics Modulators?
Epigenetic modulators thus serve to transduce signals from environmental agents, injury, inflammation, aging and other cellular stressors towards modifiers to alter the chromatin states of tumor suppressors or oncogenes and to promote epigenetic flexibility and the acquisition of stem-like features early during:
- Epigenetic mechanisms form a layer of control within a cell that regulates gene expression and silencing. …
- Three different epigenetic mechanisms have been identified: DNA methylation, histone modification, and non-coding RNA (ncRNA)-associated gene silencing (“turning off dyslexia”).

A slew of 17 studies reveals the first comprehensive list of all cell types in the primary motor complex, offering “a starting point for tracing cellular networks to understand how they control our body and mind and how they are disrupted in mental and physical disorders,” reports ScienceDaily. From the report: The 17 studies, appearing online Oct. 6 in the journal Nature, are the result of five years of work by a huge consortium of researchers supported by the National Institutes of Health’s Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative to identify the myriad of different cell types in one portion of the brain. It is the first step in a long-term project to generate an atlas of the entire brain to help understand how the neural networks in our head control our body and mind and how they are disrupted in cases of mental and physical problems.

As well, the energy cycles which are known as circadian rhythms, which were popularized by Nobel Prize-winning researchers Jeffrey Hall, Michael Rosbash, and Michael Young. They highlighted that every cell in the body is set to follow this biological clock which determines your sleep, appetite, hormone releases, and energy levels. Polymorphisms in this gene are associated with susceptibility for multiple sclerosis (MS). Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants (see Thymus below). “The circadian rhythm of about 24 hours is a fundamental physiological function observed in almost all organisms, from prokaryotes to humans. Identification of clock genes has allowed us to study the molecular bases for circadian behaviors and temporal physiological processes such as hormonal secretion, and has prompted the idea that molecular clocks reside not only in a central pacemaker, the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) of hypothalamus in mammals, but also in peripheral tissues, even in immortalized cells.” Furthermore …(See RAS, Pons, Thymus below, and see brain and testes association HERE-Retrieved from Thymus Function and Aging: A Focus on Thymic Epithelial Cells https://www.frontiersin.org/research-topics/24158 https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/15834108/; https://link.springer.com/article/10.1186/1471-2199-5-18).
An autoimmune disease is a condition that affects your hormones and immune system which mistakenly attacks your body. The immune system normally guards against germs like bacteria and viruses. When it senses these foreign invaders, it sends out an army of fighter cells to attack them. There are more than 100 autoimmune diseases, including conditions such as celiac disease, type 1 diabetes, and psoriasis. These occur when the immune system mistakenly attacks parts of the human body. This statistic comes from the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association.

4 – The vitamin D Receptor and T cell function
Where is the vitamin D receptor?
In humans, the vitamin D receptor is encoded by the VDR gene located on chromosome 12q13. 11. Like the iNKT cells, there are also fewer CD8αα/TCRαβ precursors in the thymus of VDR-KO animals. Moreover, to complete development CD8αα/TCRαβ cells must travel from the thymus to the gastrointestinal tract where IL-15 induces proliferation and upregulation of CD8αα. Due to decreased levels of IL-15 receptor expression VDR-KO CD8αα/TCRαβ cells proliferate poorly, resulting in a diminished mature CD8αα/TCRαβ population in the VDR-KO gut (Yu et al., 2008; Bruce and Cantorna, 2011; Ooi et al., 2012). These data illustrate that in contrast to conventional T cells, VDR expression is mandatory for development of both iNKT cells and CD8αα/TCRαβ T cells. VDR is expressed in most tissues of the body, and regulates transcription of about 900 genes involved in intestinal and renal transport of calcium and other minerals. In a study by Patel et al. (1995) plasma toxins from uremic patients was shown to bind to the patient’s VDR, thereby disrupting binding of VDR-RXR to DNA resulting in a diminished VDR response. It so appears that post-translational modifications of VDR adjust VDR activity in both health and disease. [Retrieved from https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fimmu.2013.00148/full].

Similarly, Early last year, researchers from institutes in Germany and Greece reported a mechanism in the brain’s outer cortical cells that produces a novel ‘graded’ signal all on its own, one that could provide individual neurons with another way to carry out their logical functions.

Chapter 1 The Body
Nature- is the maturation of the brain and body; for the purpose of survival, it’s the ability to perceive, give meaning, learn, and act including motivation along with resilience of our very own environments, and seeking out patterns first.
Our brains and particularly the posterior lobes of cortex, have evolved to recognize environmental patterns efficiently. Just as affect can influence what we perceive in the outside world, our expectations about what we are seeing can warp what we do see. Illusions, like Abelson, are great ways to illustrate the brain’s dependence on and interaction with patterns when recognizing our world. The environment is comprised not of random or chaotic information, but rather of predictable patterns. Humans’ ability to rapidly recognize those patterns is a critical part of how recognition networks function.. Received from http://udltheorypractice.cast.org/reading?12&loc=chapter2.xml_l1969841].
In mice, a specific type of brain cell called a PV neuron improves the ability to distinguish a target sound from background noise (i.e., the cocktail party problem) (Kamal Sen, Boston University). The feeling of ownership over one’s body while experiencing an event strengthens the memory representation of that event in the hippocampus, a brain region involved in learning and memory (Heather Iriye, Karolinska Institute, Sweden). In humans and monkeys, imagining an object’s movement activates motion-sensitive areas of the brain, suggesting that both species can simulate versions of the world in similar ways (David Sheinberg, Brown University). A novel technique involving non-invasive transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) informed by real-time scalp EEG recordings enhanced human visual perception by modulating communication between frontal and visual brain regions (Nitzan Censor, Tel-Aviv University, Israel). These studies give a better understanding of the neural basis of perceptual phenomena will help clarify both ordinary experiences — such as the ability to pick a single voice out of a noisy background — and disorders in which perception is altered — such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer’s disease.

It also connects and aligns the chakras (energy centers-wheels), Pons, RAS & CAN: ACC/HPA and thymus including their own biofield (including electromagnetic field). This vagal balance allows (via thymus) the brain stem to receive the information (formulating patterned neural connections) from the environment, the frontal lobe to perceive the universal emotions which are the following: anger, strength, joy, bliss, shame, empathy, courage, compassion, might and harmony, and the midbrain to monitor and receive information (firing pattern of brain nerve cells in a network), The PONS and RAS- HPA/ACC includes executive functioning which involves logic through analysis or evaluation; initially, the thymus is where the mind (thymus) deems how important based on cellular memory (what or why). “The relationship to the senses and the is direct, for the senses leave lasting impressions on the soul.” [Retrieved from https://www.unseenwarfare.net/the-five-senses.]

It works through the brain and the brain controls the body. We are created in the image of God. They test animals of all sorts by putting large mirrors in their habitats. No other animal recognizes his image. Only humans recognize our image.” Note: Your brain makes up its mind up to ten seconds before you realize it, according to researchers. By looking at brain activity while making a decision, the researchers could predict what choice people would make before they themselves were even aware of having made a decision. The work calls into question the ‘consciousness’ of our decisions and may even challenge ideas about how ‘free’ we are to make a choice at a particular point in time.

Then onto the frontal lobe, where the “why” is based on context cues and visual-patterening (evaluation) and the “what” is based on recursive aspects of patterns (analysis). The vagus nerve controls vagal balance and the executive functioning system (via the thymus- vagus nerve chakra). The thymus (high-heart and mind) including the vagus nerve can be deactivated, hyperactivated, hypoactived, underdeveloped, or variably then going inactive in children (adults-too); therefore, all information is the chaotic and releases specific inflammatory proteins at the gut-brain axis which can be toxic to the triune brain.

Bottom’s Up- Nope Bottom’s Down
But we can look beyond neuroscience to other fields for confirmation of the importance of these three basic components of learning. For some time, educators, psychologists, and organizational theorists have pointed to the same three components in any learning organism. For example, Lev Vygotsky, a pioneering Russian psychologist of the early 20th century, described three prerequisites for learning:
- Engagement with the learning task
- Recognition of the information to be learned
- Strategies to process that information14
Recognition is Heterarchical
We have seen that individual aspects of patterns, such as their color, shape, orientation, or motion, are processed by separate parts of recognition networks. And these specialized processes proceed in parallel. But they do not proceed independently. Like affective systems, recognition systems are intensely interconnected and heterarchical. The naïve assumption is that recognition is primarily a “bottom-up” process. In this view, visual sensory information enters the nervous system at the retina (the bottom) and then travels up through an increasingly complex hierarchical network, eventually reaching the visual cortex where patterns in the visual information are recognized (the top).
But as we saw in the Adelson illusion, recognition is very much a “top-down” process. Our brains don’t just passively receive information in that bottom-up way. Instead, our brains are constantly and persistently anticipating and predicting what patterns we will see, hear, smell, taste, or touch, and those expectancies profoundly affect what patterns we actually do perceive. To facilitate recognition, our brains consistently make use of higher-order information such as background knowledge, context, previous experience, and overall pattern.

Responsive System Dysfunction (RSD): *Dysregulation Functional System Regulation RAS (Brain stem)-PONS (Mind/Brain) DISCONNECTION THYMUS (SOUL)- Is Negatively (Anger and Shame) Charged Synergism of Cells Causing Deficits -Tricia Cook
*NOTE: Dysregulated and Dysfunctional System Responsive System Dysfunction (RSD) and Total Learning System Dysfunction (TLSD) works in a downward effect from RAS to -PONS to -THYMUS:
ALL our systems and senses need to function equalized, activated, and balanced for learning to take place. The triune brain which is the neomammalian complex (RAS- aka neocortex), midbrain (pons- aka limbic system), and forebrain (thymus aka reptilian) is working on a downward function. People are using their mental and emotional bodies to learn not their etherical body (etheric).
NOW ALL LEARNING IS IN THIS DIRECTION:
JESUS (Mental Body- 1st-3rd chakras) RAS- HPA/ACC the aka neocortex (Body & Brain- breath). It’s the cognitive and physical “what” (meaning) which is the “The Way”. A clean heart- brings purity.
Holy Ghost (Emotional Body- 4th-6th chakras) PONS aka limbic system (Body & Mind- breath). It’s the affective and the physical “why” (motivation) which is “The Truth”. A pure mind- brings blamelessness.
God (Etherical Body- 7th-12th ) THYMUS aka reptilian (H. Heart & Mind- authentic breath). It’s the God-Soul, authentic self connection which is infinite, complete, & absolute truth “The Light”. A clean heart and pure mind with blamelessness brings righteousness (salvation).
Eliminating Negative Thoughts
In the field of psychology, emotions are not just our feelings, as some may think. Just as colors are actually the appearance of different frequencies, emotions [especially anger and shame] are composed of similar properties. A lower or negative emotion has a lower frequency and the body isn’t able to assimilate that frequency or doesn’t know how to deal with it. In these situations, these emotions can become “trapped” in our magnetic field [“soul”] or even in our bodies causing imbalances that can affect the proper function of our body system. [Retrieved from https://thebodyemotions.com/what-is-the-emotion-how-it-changes-lives/]
Emotions are our feelings, thoughts, ideas, perceptions, physical sensations and involve the senses and their faculties and systems, all of which start in the mind. They create what we call mindset- needing a calm mindset for equanimity is key. Our God- spiritual mindset regulates every love or fear experience we have and our very purpose of being here on earth. The emotions need to be honored, especially anger and shame. Emotional agility is to move quickly and easily from anger to strength and shame to empathy; for adults, it is to move quickly and easily from hatred to courage and grief to compassion. For this to happen, you need self-directed neuroplasticity, amongst several other things for which I will mention. Retrieved from https://doi.org/10.1155/2017/9634501.
Likewise, you need to not only need to eliminate the negative thoughts, but to become conscious of the positive thoughts. We have gifts, strengths, and talents that can be developed by natural compensation of the brain and can enforced by your environment. Recognizing these gifts will hopeful be recognized at an early age before anger and shame starts to surface. Anger and shame energies can hide the gifts, strengths, and talents because you believe the negative and untruth that you are ‘not good at anything’.

The ‘theory of mind” is the degree of capacity for empathy and strength; as well as our understanding of ourselves and others have a mind, too. Where the mind is located has been a continuous debate- I propose that the mind at least begin in our very own thymus. The thymus in Greek root–thymos–the middle region between reason (intelligence) and desire (imagination). The thymus is the center of both our higher and lower self. It is the epicenter of a vagus nerve highway including the interchanges from our gut-brain axis, to our Pons, RAS including CAN: ACC and HPA (both housed with-in the brain) which all control every system, sense, and function; basically, every aspect of the human being. The thymus aka “leb” can be overtaken by love or fear- it’s where our consciousness and super consciousness (ARAS- chakras 12+ consciousness and subconscious conjoin in unity) begins and ends. In reference to the “leb:- R E Murphy on the heart – The heart is the central organ of the body in the wisdom literature. It is often paraphrased as “mind,” since it does have an intellectual component (cf. the usual, if unfortunate, translation of the “listening heart” of Solomon in 1Ki 3:9 as “understanding mind”). But it is also the basic orientation of a person, embracing desires, emotions, and attitude.
The attitude depends on the student finding motivation and meaning for their learning. One’s attitude for learning makes for a make or break type learning. -Tricia Cook
In the field of child-psychology, “Every attitude has three components that are represented in what is called the ABC model of attitudes: A for affective, B for behavioral, and C for cognitive. Although every attitude has these three components, any particular attitude can be based on one component more than another (Study.com 2020).” The naming of the word attitude as it relates to students learning can give someone a negative perception; parents ask me all the time, “can you help me with my child’s attitude”. The attitude one has for learning makes for a make or break type learning. I observe kids all the time with Responsive System Dysfunction (RSD) which means it is hard to find meaning and motivation for learning. When your child is learning under stress, fear, and having RDS, they are learning from their mental or emotional bodies, primarily with a (anger) Sympathetic Functional System which is a hyper-processing dysfunction and (shame) Parasympathetic Functional System Dysfunction which is a hypo-processing dysfunction or both anger/shame which is a Total Functional Dominance System which is a varied hyper-, hypo- dysfunction of the RAS (Rectangular Activation System). This hyper-, hypo- and varied dominance affects the “whole child”.
Affective differences clearly exert powerful effects on learners’ ability to learn. Affect can influence a learner very positively—as shown in Rosalie Fink’s work on reading instruction of individuals with dyslexia—or, as is more commonly noted, negatively. 31 Students with severe affective disorders, such as schizophrenia or a history of abuse, are highly vulnerable to reading failure, in part because strong affective influences derail the work of recognition and strategic networks. More prevalent issues, such as learning disabilities, can also produce strong affective responses over time. We have talked to college students with learning disabilities who vividly describe the palpable dread with which they pick up and open new textbooks. Naturally, some effects are commonplace for everyone—anxiety before a test or a presentation is not only typical of most people but also beneficial. A certain amount of stress or anxiety can prepare us to pay close attention and to perform at our best. Understanding these differences can help teachers support learners appropriately.

Perceiving with Interpersonal Victimhood Outside of Conscious Awareness
The research was published in Personality and Individual Differences:
Another Recent Study uncovers the “Tendency for Interpersonal Victimhood”: A new personality construct has been defined that describes people who persistently see themselves as victims within interpersonal conflicts. This research has suggested, for example, that middle school students with learning disabilities often view academic situations as threatening, even exhibiting physiological stress responses upon entering a room where they will be asked to read. While more successful readers tend to show mild anxiety when asked to read aloud, students with a history of reading difficulties show elevated heart rates and other indicators of stress even before being given instructions.25
Murphy and Zajonc (1993) affirmed a previous finding that positive and negative affective responses “can be evoked with minimal stimulus input and virtually no cognitive processing” (p. 723). They further found that when affective network response is elicited outside of conscious awareness, brain response is diffuse and a specific location cannot be specified.
“The emotion is a direct avenue to explain a spiritual truth. Likewise, “draw away the mind from its grief… “later noting that ‘we ought not to grieve for those whom we see to be set free, and we bear in mind that so many holy souls are, not without a purpose, at this time loosed from the chains of the body’ (1.67). ” Written by Rt. Revd. Prof Bishop Irenei of London and Western Europe HERE
According to Fr. Stephen Freeman, acknowledging our emptiness and brokenness, our failures and weakness, is an exercise in confronting shame. It can be quite painful – something we either avoid or cover over with self-loathing. Shame is not self-loathing. Indeed, the energy behind our self-loathing is simply pride (ϕιλαυτία). Self-loathing is consumed with the self and driven by its unwillingness to be that person. Bearing our shame is the willingness to acknowledge the truth of ourselves and our lives as a simple fact, without protest or promise of reform. It is enduring the simple fact of our lives, how we live them, how we fail, how we really do not love God or others, etc. It is not an exercise in comparative failure – it does not matter whether our weakness is similar to anyone else’s. Such comparisons are merely another exercise in self-justification, an avoidance of the fact, the shame, of our lives.
In this particular ancient tradition, anger, or any passion for that matter, is not an appropriate motivation for any action….Of course one must act, personally and politically, in whatever ways are possible and appropriate to make the world a better place, but not with anger burning in your heart. Anger blinds and deafens. Anger keeps us from thinking clearly and from paying attention to and loving the human beings in our presence right now. Anger drives away the Holy Spirit and consistently leads us to say and do things we later regret. Anger is not the way. We need to give the heart a way out of itself. This goes back to the idea of opening the heart to others. If you want to get out of the trap of anger or resentment, of bitterness, of depression, a key starting point is to find ways to serve another person, because when you really serve someone else, when you offer genuine compassion to another suffering person, the heart does not have time to be bitter, does not have time to loathe or to hold onto energies.

4 Types Of Victimhood (Can Injure The Soul-then Spirit)
When a child with neurodifferences is learning something new or stressful, if mindset is perceived with anger (SFD), we can observe lessened neuroplasticity of the midbrain (right lobe) and constant speed shifting (accelerated or and varied) of the prefrontal cortex, frontal lobe along with midbrain (left lobe) and emotional disorders with long-term memory problems. Likewise, if the mindset is perceived with shame (PFD), we can observe lessened neuroplasticity of the prefrontal cortex, frontal lobe along with posterior left lobe, and constant speed shifting (slow or and varied) of the midbrain (right lobe) along with more executive functioning issues and short-term memory problems or midbrain. We can attribute this constant speed shifting to the common difficulties of poor neuroplasticity. Likewise, the lacking a self-directed neuroplasticity such as positive Spiritual mindset such as mind trusting qualities of belief that’s and feeling safe and secure in their environment:
-Sympathetic Functional Dominance System- I AM worthy (autonomy), REASON- related to others predominately:
- anger- transform to strength
- hatred- transform to courage
-Parasympathetic Functional Dominance System- I AM enough (attunement), DESIRE/DISCOURAGED-related to self predominately:
- shame- transform to empathy
- grief (guilt)- transform to compassion

“In particular, Crick found it impossible to believe that DNA could have evolved, based on his knowledge of its structure and the principles of naturalistic evolution. Rather than consider the possibility of DNA being the deliberate construction of an intelligent Creator, Crick mused about ideas like exogenesis, panspermia, and directed panspermia. Crick has since re-affirmed his commitment to the evolution of life on earth from purely natural mechanisms, though with significant questions left unanswered [such as] For the complete matrix, you have to have matter, force, energy, space, and time. Those five things are all in Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning [time] God [force] created [energy] the heavens [space] and the earth [matter].” The complete matrix is in Genesis 1:1 and that is a profound scientific statement. However, all red blood cells, including human, must start with DNA, as DNA contains the code that tells each cell how to construct itself in the first place. All other cells in the human body contain nuclear DNA. Also, all cells start with nuclear DNA. Nuclear DNA structure is a double helix, with two strands wound around each other, a structure first described by Francis Crick and James D. Watson (1953) using data collected by Rosalind Franklin. The reason for this is that DNA contains the basic code that tells each cell how to grow, function, and reproduce. Nuclear matrix proteins (NMPs) are part of the structural framework of the nucleus and provide support for the nuclear shape. These proteins have also been attributed roles in DNA replication, in ribonucleic acid transcription and in the regulation of gene expression. The nuclear matrix is a three-dimensional filamentous protein network, found in the nucleoplasm, which provides a structural framework for organising chromatin, while facilitating transcription and replication. Our cells contain Dictyostelium discoideum amoeba, as well as from cells embedded in soft three dimensional matrices [393,394].

In your thymus, in the case of “knowing” acknowledge: God is Alive (Life), Infinite (Eternal), Complete (Perfect). Rev. Christopher Nagbe told me, “the Lord that give us strength to acquire knowledge so if the knowledge is given we should always acknowledge Him in our profession, in our education; so forth, then we will know that the required us to walk in the spirit, so we can’t fulfill the deals of the flesh in so doing we will always know that there is someone greater than our education”. As the importance of the role of the thymus has grown, so too has the understanding that it is extremely sensitive to both acute and chronic injury. The thymus undergoes rapid degeneration following a range of toxic insults, and as part of the aging process, albeit at a faster rate than many other tissues. The thymus is, however, capable of regenerating, restoring its function to a degree. [Retrieved from https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4837659/]

9 – Image 1.0 My ELBERT: Responsive Dysfunction (RSD) Checklist Functional Is A System Dominance Checklist illustration
“Neuroplasticity allows the neurons (nerve cells) in the brain to compensate for injury and disease and to adjust their activities in response to new situations or to changes in their environment” (Definition of Neuroplasticity, 2020). Also, I’m needing to mention developmental trauma and learning something new, switching content and context frequently!!
Specifically, the mental body is anger brain dominant and perceives in the heart everything related to learning with anger. The emotional body is shame brain dominant and perceives in the heart everything related to learning with shame. According to my good friend, Tom Heintz (An Emotional Code Practitioner-Creator of The Body Code) references Christine H., MS, LMHC (Hammond 2018), ‘Anxiety [anger and shame] is one emotion that can be passed down from one generation to the next. Also, there are 10 emotions that can also be inherited through family trauma, parental modeling, and/or abusive behaviors.’ For those who struggle with sensory triggers and learning stressors, like when experiencing reading or writing, these negatively perceived and filtered experiences with anger and shame, can cause a trauma type of developmental anxiety and sometimes even depression. [Generational Healing: “10 Emotions That Can Be Inherited.” The Body Emotions, thebodyemotions.com/10-emotions-that-can-be-inherited/].
In a study by conducted by Dahle et al. (2011), they found “between 17% and 24% of the boys with dyslexia were registered as anxious/depressed, with withdrawn behavior or somatic problems in the borderline and clinical areas” (p. 167). Another interesting point noted in this study by Undheim (as cited by Dahle et al., 2011) is that “teachers did not believe that they had dyslexia because their general achievement was too good” (p. 167). Dahle et al. (2011) tells us “behavior and emotional problems can be displayed differently in different settings, and it might be difficult for teachers to identify and be aware of internalizing problems in the classroom setting” (p. 168). [Retrieved from Dahle, A. E., Knivsberg, A.-M., & Andreassen, A. B. (2011). Coexisting problem behaviour in severe dyslexia. Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, 11(3), 162–170.] In 2018, I created My ELBERT Responsive System Dysfunction (RSD) Checklist, which is a Functional System Dominance Checklist. I have found in over 4 dozen students what I always knew; that they develop anger first, if not given a healthy, safe, and supportive environment for their anger. Also, anger can develop into shame. Then, the shame will be more dominant. Therefore, My ELBERT is also a Learning Uniquinessess checklist and resources are important for those working with neurodifferences because shame is harder to address than anger. Shame is the defense for anger and survival (see Maslow Image 2.0a below) of some people before the point of safety. Some people though are less susceptible to shame and remain in anger. I have found more times than not where just anger has been marked; especially in younger students. Note: if anger and shame are not addressed at a young age, it can turn into hatred and grief. Also, anger appears anxiously (hyperactivity) and shame appears sadly depressed (hypoactivity). Together with both anger and shame, someone can appear anxious and sad. With shame being the hardest, their body may appear calm but internally their mind can be ruminating on negative thoughts, feelings, ideas, and emotions which can be hard to know unless your child shares them with someone. This is why the checklist and interview is so important. I interview the students and their parents (teachers too preferably) where an [x] means most of the time in their learning environment and a [/] means some time in their learning environment (see image 1.0).
There are several other factors for successfully expelling learning apathy such as with gaining resilience (meaning), and motivation such as: sleep, diet, health and wellness, physical activity (body), regulation of vagus nerve (soul- body connection), sometimes even the spirit-soul-body connection (much older teens), gratitude including love of self and others (heart-connection). Also, the environment that most of us live in today causing sensory overload along to consistently multitasking and/or content & context-switching (handling 2 or more tasks at the same time) especially in this complex, non-connected (yet, connected), neurotoxic and EMF toxic infused environment- ALL decreasing our very own electromagnetism and vagal tone.
NOTE: Anterior Cingulate Cortex (ACC-CAN) and Vibrating the Alta Major Chakra & Shame
Anterior Cingulate Cortex (ACC) and Vibrating the Alta Major Chakra
The Cinguate Gyrus (CAN)- is a large arch-like lobe in the center of the inner brain that is a part of the limbic system; it houses the organs and their interactions constitute the Anterior Cingulate Cortex (ACC-shame) and the main function of this area of the brain functions to process conscious emotional experience and the parasympathetic nervous system (right side). The ACC plays an important part of conscious reappraisal of emotions such as shame/empathy and anger/strength for the ARAS (Super conscious). Note: The amygdala, bulb at bottom not shown in pic.., is where The Cinguate Gyrus (CAN) first receives perceptions from the mind via the thymus, via the peripheral cranial/CNS nerves, then onto the ACC. A hyper-, hypo- amygdala works harder and the VACC can get dysregulated (shame mainly). The exact role of the Anterior Cingulate Cortex (ACC-shame) in executive functions is still debated, with most prominent theories suggesting a role in cognitive control, including error detection, conflict monitoring, and/or task switching [Retrieved from https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fneur.2010.00158/full].

The hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis is a complex set of direct influences and feedback interactions among three components: the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland, and the adrenal glands associated with the soma chakra and anger. These organs and their interactions constitute the HPA (anger) axis, a major neuroendocrine system that controls reactions to stress and regulates many body processes, including digestion, the immune system and the sympathetic nervous system (frontal lobe/left side). Note: Like above, the amygdala, bulb at bottom not shown in pic.., is where The Cinguate Gyrus (CAN) first receives perceptions from the mind (cellular memory- anger mainly) via the thymus, via the peripheral cranial/CNS nerves, then onto the ACC.

11 – 2.1 HPA illustration
Vagus Nerve and Vibrating the Soma and Alta Major Chakra
The vagus nerve- is one of the cranial nerves that connect the brain to the body. More specifically, it’s the connection between the brain and the gastrointestinal tract. Likewise, the vagus nerve has two bunches of sensory nerve cell bodies, and it connects the brainstem to the body and vagal nerves carry somatic and visceral afferents that can alter the activity of the brainstem at the point of the reticular activation centers (RAS). Remember the CAN: RAS & ACC (shame)/HPA (anger) also allows the brain to monitor and receive information about several of the body’s different functions and matters of the mind including the perceptions and filters of the parasympathetic (shame), sympathetic (anger) & total (anger/shame) response system during stress such as reading. When you activate the chakras (energy centers-wheels, major 8 and soma/alta major- HPA (anger)/ACC(shame)) and normalize, balance the vagal tone and electromagnetic field, it will stop the “epigenome” which are again the collection of chemicals markers (focus: inherently dyslexia). This interruption allows the body to then calm, be healthy, resilient, gain positive attitudes (joy, bliss, and happiness) and make learning more pleasurable and effective; therefore, also the Reticular Activating System (RAS) needs to be activated via the vagus nerve (thymus- vagus nerve chakra).
The ascending reticular activating system (ARAS- chakras 13+) itself is on the cerebral cortex and is responsible for the achievement of super consciousness (higher transpersonal self) . Note: The ARAS doesn’t fully develop in the brain until variably, around the ages 21–24 years old (Fowler, J.W. 1998). [“Fowler Faith Stages.” Encyclopedia of the Sciences of Learning, 2012, pp. 1323–1323., doi:10.1007/978-1-4419-1428-6_].
Jamieson, Mendes, Blackstock, and Schmader (2009) studies demonstrate instructions for the other group of students stated that people often feel anxiety during test taking but did not suggest how to reinterpret this experience. The results of this manipulation were striking. Students who were told how to “reappraise” the feelings they experienced during the test had significantly better performance on the math section of the practice GRE in the laboratory compared to students who were not told how to interpret their anxiety. Knowing how to reappraise or reinterpret the arousal experienced during testing appears to have had a dramatic effect on performance.30
However, the processes are also “top down” because the amygdala depends on input from the cerebral cortex to evaluate information as threatening or benign. As this example of bi-directionality in the nervous system suggests, emotion and cognition are so intertwined that disentangling them is rarely practical or useful. 28

Corpus Callosum- Crown Chakra
Corpus callosum- links both hemispheres and to varying degrees. Hence, students might have a lateral cognitive dominance of the functioning system- the students with the right-hemisphere dominance have Parasympathetic Functional System Dominance (PFD) and might have dysphonetic dyslexia because language and analysis (break down category and sequencing) which is a left-hemisphere task: therefore, students with right-hemisphere dominance might have high functioning autism, can have language deficits such as dsyphonetic (auditory) dyslexia.
Also, Note: The left and right side of the cortex are not equally thick in younger brains – a phenomenon called “cortical asymmetry”. Asymmetry is seemingly a good thing, as it allows the brain to function optimally, as the left and right brain are specialized to do slightly different jobs. The researchers found cortical asymmetry is lost as we age, proving that the two sides of the brain deteriorate at different rates. In the exact same brain regions as in normal aging, they found the left side of the brain shrinks faster in Alzheimer’s disease. [Retrieved from https://www.lifebrain.uio.no/news/nature_brain_asymmetry.html?fbclid=IwAR2ZWjQ-y1nZeI6KQYxgjO4j1PNn0A-ARumqNiUAwhqgdtmmNMRPzb2a5Zw].
Also Epilepsy Cells signaling memory strength had lower selectivity if located within a right-hemisphere [Retrieved from https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/epi.17010].
Unilateral Neglect (or Hemispatial Neglect)/Total Functioning System Dominance (TFD)- student might have high-functioning autism along with other learning differences (below). Someone prominent in right-brain (ACC) has an unawareness of objects to one side of the body or personal space. In severe cases, a side can be completely ignored when carrying out certain tasks and everyday functions such as writing, so may have dysgraphia. But another important brain function is controlled by either the right side of your brain or the left side of your brain, depending on your handedness.
Sympathetic Functioning System Dominance (SFD) student has total (see below) or left corpus callosum dysfunction then having a total right or left-lateral hemisphere dominance (HPA), evaluation (specifically color, shape, size & dimension) is a right-hemisphere task; those with a Sympathetic Functioning System Dominance (SFD) therefore, might have autism, Irlen Syndrome, and dsyeidetic (visual) dyslexia.
Unilateral Neglect (or Hemispatial Neglect)/Total Functioning System Dominance (TFD)- students might have autism (lower functioning) along with other learning differences (below). Someone with dominant frontal lobe or the (left) dominant temporal lobe (SFD) can cause a condition called aphasia, which is a serious disturbance of speech and communication.
Functional Disconnection/ Complete Functioning System Dominance Syndrome when the short-term memory aka “working memory” is not equalized, then the information being led by the Corpus Colosseum to the frontal lobe for executive functioning becomes deficient- when in adults hatred and grief are involved. Whether the Corpus Colosseum is underdeveloped or deficient in its development for example: there can be blockage, protein folding, insufficient synapse development (premature pruning), poor fluid to transfer synapse message, etc. Also, if the Corpus Colosseum, the “short term memory” is compromised this is also known as Mixed Brain Dominance or dysphasia and forms of autism.
Mind You Again: The Mind
With just a Sympathetic Functional System Dominance (SFD), they perceive in the mind everything with anger during stressful experiences. When they have a Parasympathetic Functional System Dominance (PFD), in the mind, they filter and attune themselves to everything with shame. When we have both anger and shame in the mind (see child sample above), this is called a Total Learning System Dysfunction (TLSD) which creates: this creates almost complete soul-body disconnect (dysregulation) due to constant learning aka cognitive speed shifting (hyper-. hypo-, and varied) which tires out the brain’s (RAS) Rectangular Activation System (chakras 6-8th including soma and alta-major chakras), Pons (crown chakra), and Thymus (vagus nerve chakra) much quicker than the aligned and balanced learning brain and body which, in turn, lessens neuroplasticity. When our very own DNA generationally predispositions with dysfunctions of the Rectangular Activation System, Pons, and Thymus and for learning differences (anger and shame predispositions), ALL our systems and senses can have any dysfunctions, and therefore, we can actually have body-soul disconnection in the mind!
Mind you again, learning apathy is complicated and that the spirit-soul-body/connection-trust-love disconnection causes maladjustment and belonging in this world. Don’t worry, our spirit, soul, and body connection can also be complicated to a point, if we understand that we are love and not meant for fear. Think about it this way, when your child has a Hypo or Hyper, Total Responsive System Dysfunction (TRSD), their learning decreases due to disconnections to others-themselves, soul-body disconnection of consciousness, perceptions of anger/shame along with assimilation (meaning and motivation) of those perceptions. Sadly, the students who have TRSD dysfunctions, they can become labelled Learning Disabled amongst other labels. Therefore, they are not learning effectively, cognitively, or behaviorally on a conscious level nor helped in a way that is revolutionary nor effective. There’s always hope and faith in their spiritual growth:
- Soul-body connection of consciousness is a spirit Salvation brings Joy, Peace & Hope (no longer partially or fully spiritual “dead”)
- Spirit soul-body connection of super consciousness is a mature spirit of Eternal Life bring Rejoice, Harmony, & Faith
In regard to Spiritual Maturity, Joyce Meyer said November 16, 2021– ‘Get Yourself OFF YOUR Mind”. Then, we have respect to His glory, living by grace, and the light of God acting in His character and His Operations.

True Trinity- With-in Everyone
- People with a neurodifference (approx. 23% of population) learn from Pathos to Ethose All “Atypical” People Learn Ethos to Pathos——–but there’s a missing third component for ALL LEARNING FOR EVERYONE The Authentic Self (thymus):
(RAS- HPA & ACC) The Body & Breath of Jesus (1st-3rd chakras)= Minister of The Word
- The ETHOS- “the what” is the RAS= HPA & ACC (body & brain= brain stem) processing side and short-term memory- it’s the present and the arousal of the limbic cortex such as: ACC- amygdala, and the hippocampus. It is where our dreams come into our reality and then onto fruition, need healing to have grace and mercy and shame or fear can prohibit. Correlated with chakras 6–8th so needing empathy.
(PONS) The Heart & Breath of Holy Ghost (4-6th chakras)= Ministry of The Spirit
- The PATHOS- “the why” is the Pons (body & mind = midbrain) which is a small part of the brain above the pons that integrates sensory information and relays it upward (RAS). Similar to the RAS, it is responsible for arousal (hyper-, hypo-, and varied) and plays a role in mood. In terms of long–term physiological changes, it is also associated with long-term memory- it’s the past and the future. This is also where dreams are centered based on our thymus and what we focus on or need healing to become pure and blameless. It is where our dreams come into our reality and then onto fruition, and grief and hatred can prohibit. Correlated with chakras 1st-8th so needing courage and compassion.
(THYMUS- “The Leb”) The Mind & Soul-Spirit Connection of God (7-12th chakras)= Peace From God
- THE Authentic Self (the true question/answer) is the Thymus (high heart & mind= soul) a connection of perception between all affective and behavioral cognitive experiences on a cellular level (cellular memory) including the mainstream universal emotions of anger, strength, joy, bliss, shame, empathy, courage, compassion, might, and harmony and relays it upward (PONS). It’s also where you can find the “imagination” and “intelligence” that lies within all of us of God’s Will. It’s removed veil and divine nature “God’s Divine Nature” With-In Ourselves (described here). This is where the God’s mind creates our purpose by filtering, interpreting our world and experiences which in turn creates our dreams into reality of miracles and blessings and Nothing Can Prohibit IF RECEIVED GOD. Correlated with chakra 9-12 and all the rest of the chakras.
Using Mental or Emotional Body to Make Decisions: Means Free Will- Not at Peace With God, Yet…

RAS – “The Door” Rectangular Activation System
14 – 2.3 RAS Rectangular Activation System Note: includes Soma and Alta Major Chakras illustration
The RAS being activated via the pons, and thymus leads someone to a “Flexible Mind”. This flexible mind is due to the transference of “cells” and activating the synapse of the neurons to increase neuroplasticity. A “Ridged Mind” is a closed mind- remember, if you don’t use an “open mind”, you lose it (placidity- that is, also read below abstract thinking). -Tricia Cook
Vagus Nerve & RAS Vibrating Alta Major Chakra (*aka God Awareness Chakra)
The Reticular Activating System (RAS)- Ras/ HPA & ACC/Gut – to know, perceive, recognize, have, aware, cognizant, do laugh, reverence, ask, repent, reconciliation which is a network of neurons (hyper-, hypo-, or, varied) located in the brain stem that project anteriorly to the hypothalmus to mediate behavior such as sleep, memory, and learning; as well as, both posteriorly to the and directly to the cortex for activation of awake, desynchronized cortical EEG patterns. The reticular formation (part of pons-see below) is a set of interconnected nuclei that are located throughout the brain stem. It is not anatomically well-defined, because it includes neurons located in different parts of the brain. The neurons of the reticular formation make up a complex set of networks in the core of the brain stem that extend from the upper part of the midbrain to the lower part of the medulla oblongata. The reticular formation includes ascending pathways to the cortex in the ascending reticular activating system and descending pathways to the spinal cord via the reticulospinal tracts.  It is holistically and spiritually known from being a center “where we can create our own reality” whether positive, negative, or neutral. Knowing: What we focus on in our mind (thymus), pons (dream center) then comes to fruition here in our RAS. The reticular activating system’s fundamental role is regulating arousal and sleep−wake transitions.

Note: the thalamus has been found to be less passive in cognitive functions may indeed be supported by a more general role in shaping mental representations. Several features of thalamocortical circuits are consistent with this suggested role, and we highlight how divergent and convergent thalamocortical and corticothalamic pathways may complement each other to support these functions. Furthermore, the role of the thalamus for subcortical integration is highlighted as a key mechanism for maintaining and updating representations.

The GUT- The SECOND Brain
The gut consist of 75% of our immune system, and the microbiome refers to the collective genomes of the micro-organisms in a particular environment, and microbiota is the community of micro-organisms themselves (box 1). Approximately 100 trillion micro-organisms (most of them bacteria, but also viruses, fungi, and protozoa) exist in the human gastrointestinal tract12—the microbiome is now best thought of as a virtual organ of the body. The human genome consists of about 23 000 genes, whereas the microbiome encodes over three million genes producing thousands of metabolites, which replace many of the functions of the host,13 consequently influencing the host’s fitness, phenotype, and health.2
The human body is composed of a complex biological system; with over 90% of microbiota cells and 10 million microbiota genes (1), it possesses over 100 trillion bacteria, 10 times the number of human body cells, 150 times the number of human genes, 1,000 species and over 7,000 strains (2).

- Microbiome—the collective genomes of the microorganisms in a particular environment
- Microbiota—the community of microorganisms themselves
- Microbiota diversity—a measure of how many species and, dependent on the diverse indices, how evenly distributed they are in the community. Lower diversity is considered a marker of dysbiosis (microbial imbalance) in the gut and has been found in autoimmune diseases and obesity and cardio metabolic conditions, as well a in elderly people.
- Colonocytes—epithelial cells of the colon
According to several studies, there is considerable evidence showing that the gut microbiome not only affects the digestive, metabolic, and immune functions of the host but also regulates host sleep and mental states through the microbiome-gut-brain axis. Preliminary evidence indicates that microorganisms and circadian genes can interact with each other. The characteristics of the gastrointestinal microbiome and metabolism are related to the host’s sleep and circadian rhythm. Moreover, emotion and physiological stress can also affect the composition of the gut microorganisms. The gut microbiome and inflammation may be linked to sleep loss, circadian misalignment, affective disorders, and metabolic disease.

Stress also exerts a great influence on the functions of our immune system: if the immune system is somehow compromised and cannot properly cope with physicochemical stresses [such as food/nutrition, noise, pollution, metabolic disorder, infection, and inflammation], or if the stress exceeds the regular adaptability of the immune system, this leads to diseased states that may develop into fatal conditions.

The pons is part of the brainstem that in humans and other bipeds lies inferior to the midbrain, superior to the medulla oblongata and anterior to the cerebellum.  The pons integrates both the medulla oblongata and the thalamus (NOTE: the importance of conscious reappraisal of emotions (emotional reappraisal) such as shame/empathy and anger/strength for the ARAS). In the thalamus, students can have a slow (hypo-), accelerated (hyper-) or varied processing, and they have a problem with sensory integration disorders (corollary discharge) and emotional intensity or insensitivity with their neurodifference. The Pons, like the RAS, is responsible for arousal (hyper-, hypo- and varied).

The pons controls our breath known as ‘life’. God gave us the ‘life’, so we can be the breath of God, leading a pure and blameless life. The pons just doesn’t serve to help the different lobes communicate, but also is the veil of God. The pons area also contains the trapezoid body (RAS) where you are able to vocalize sounds.

Carotid Body. The carotid body is a chemoreceptor located in the adventitia of the bifurcation of the common carotid artery. Chemoreceptor function: Carotid body monitors the blood’s pH, pCO2, and pO2 and thereby modulates cardiovascular and respiratory function primarily through sympathetic tone.

Thymus- “The Second Gate”
20 – image 4.2 thymus illustration works with RAS illustration
(has an effect to peripheral, Vagus Nerve, CNS- as well as EM Field aka “the senses”)
Thymus (12th chakra and all chakras, high heart & mind)-Upper or Higher Heart Chakra (*aka God Unity Chakra, Ascension Chakra, Vagus Nerve Chakra). It is the “one” umpire known as the mind. Thymus- to be, have, belong, remain, imagine living in love (wisdom, curiosity, “intellect”, connect)-It is known as “the seat of the soul”, and our Higher Intelligence & Imagination or “The Mind”- for the fact that it: holds a record of traumatic or painful events, dimensional to the subliminal content (see intelligence model below) and ancestral narration (see imagination). High Heart Chakra, also called the ascended heart chakra, is connected with an organ: the thymus gland which before birth and throughout childhood (largest in the teen years-dormant at 50 years old). The thymus is a specialized primary lymphoid organ of the immune system. Within the thymus, thymus cell lymphocytes or T cells mature. T cells are critical to the adaptive immune system, where the body adapts specifically to foreign invaders. The thymus is located in the upper front part of the chest, in the anterior superior mediastinum, behind the sternum, and in front of the heart. It is made up of two lobes, each consisting of a central medulla and an outer cortex, surrounded by a capsule.  The thymus is instrumental in the production and maturation of T-lymphocytes or T cells, a specific type of white blood cell that protects the body from certain threats, including viruses and infections; It plays a role in immunity, autoimmunity, and aging (it’s basically our twin flame and fountain of youth). It’s made up of a scheme showing development of branchial epithelial bodies from the thoracic cavity of the foetus. I, II, III, IV. Branchial pouches.  The human leukocyte antigen (HLA) system or complex is a complex of genes on chromosome 6 in humans which encode cell-surface proteins responsible for the regulation of the immune system. The HLA system is also known as the human version of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) found in many animals. More importanmtly, the “soul that is the seat of the mind”.

For spiritual mindset….”a healthy spiritual heart (intellect, emotion, will) [thymus] is at the center of one’s inner being (soul) and is vital for a healthy soul, serving as the “fountain” of all moral attitudes and actions.”
Inward. Man or Part- in´wẽrd : A Pauline term, nearly identical with the “hidden man of the heart” (1 Peter 3:4 ). The Greek original, ὁ ἒσω (also ἒσωθεν )ἂνθρωπος , ho ésō (ésōthen ‘ ánthrōpos (Romans 7:22 ) is lexigraphically defined “the internal man,” i.e. “soul,” “conscience.” It is the immaterial part of man – mind, spirit – in distinction from the “outward man” which “perishes” (2 Corinthians 4:16 the King James Version). As the seat of spiritual influences it is the sphere in which the Holy Spirit does His renewing and saving work (see the chakras- wheels) (Ephesians 3:16 ). The term “inward man” cannot be used interchangeably with “the new man,” for it may still be “corrupt,” and subject to “vanity” and “alienated from the life of God.” Briefly stated, it is mind, soul, spirit – God’s image in man – man’s higher nature, intellectual, moral, and spiritual. A symbolic expression in the Old Testament represented by three Hebrew words: חדר , ḥedher, “chamber,” hence, inmost bowels or breast; טחות , tuḥōth , “the reins”; קרב , ḳerebh , “midst,” “middle,” hence, heart . Once in the New Testament ( ἒσωθεν , ésōthen , “from within,” Luke 11:39 ). The viscera (heart, liver, kidneys) [the internal organs in the main cavities of the body, especially those in the abdomen, e.g. the intestines aka “the gut”] were supposed by the ancients to be the seat of the mind, feelings, affections: the highest organs of the psyche , “the soul.” The term includes the intellect (“wisdom in the inward parts,” Job 38:36 ); the moral nature (“inward part is very wickedness,” Psalms 5:9 ); the spiritual (“my law in their inward parts,” Jeremiah 31:33 ). Its adverbial equivalent in Biblical use is “inwardly.” INWARD , MAN (which see) is identical in meaning.

Thymus Ancient Extracellular Signaling Molecule Matrix (ECM)
The thymus includes ancient extracellular signalling molecules which are cues, such as growth factors, hormones, cytokines, extracellular matrix components and neurotransmitters, designed to transmit specific information to target cells. Increasing knowledge about the roles of extracellular matrix and its components in the nervous system development and disease is important from the therapeutic viewpoint. Activation of signaling cascades underlying reorganization of the extracellular matrix and stimulation of neuronal plasticity is an achievable goal and a promising approach for treatment of acute and chronic neurodegenerative disorders. Recent data suggest that extracellular matrix proteases modifying cell recognition molecules on the neuronal surface, modulate synaptogenesis and plasticity during development and neurorepair.

However, it is still unclear how these changes in brain regions are linked to PTSD. Further research needs to be conducted to understand the function of brain regions during the development of PTSD. Also, people can develop PTSD, depression, or both as a result of a major traumatic event. The hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis (HPA axis) may play an important role in such a difference (see HPA and anger above).

For many people, a traumatic experience can leave an indelible impression on the brain in the form of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Dysthymia- People with untreated ADHD can suffer from dysthymia — a mild but long-term mood disorder or sadness. It is often brought on by living with the frustrations, failures, negative feedback, and stresses of life due to untreated or inadequately treated ADHD. People who are dysthymic suffer almost every day from low energy and self-esteem. [Retrieved from https://www.additudemag.com/slideshows/adhd-emotions-understanding-intense-feelings/‘].

A study of human brain tissue suggests clinical depression reduces the quantity of astrocyte cells in key regions
Depression (major depressive disorder) is a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act. Fortunately, it is also treatable. Depression causes feelings of sadness and/or a loss of interest in activities once enjoyed. It can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems and can decrease a person’s ability to function at work and at home.

The gut microbiota is associated with…The gut microbiota forms part of a complex network termed the microbiota-gut-brain axis along with the enteric nervous system, sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions of the autonomic nervous system, neuroendocrine and neuroimmune components the central nervous system. The gut microbiota is associated with neuropsychiatric disorder such as schizophrenia, autistic disorders, anxiety disorders, major depression and bipolar disorder. Major depressive disorder is a stress-related mood disorder associated with a disrupted HPA axis, and evidence suggests that the gut microbiota play a key role in modulating depression. Bipolar disorder is a severe psychiatric disorder with dysfunctions of neuroimmune system which also suggest the brain-gut-microbiota axis is an important physiological mechanism. (See Dysautonomia, HPA and anger above).
Communication from gut to brain occurs through tryptophan, an essential building block of serotonin. Serotonin is key in regulating mood, eating, and sleep patterns. There is limited storage capacity for tryptophan in the brain, and a constant supply is required from the gut. It was once believed that tryptophan came strictly from diet alone, but what research has shown is that gut microbiota, particularly Bifidobacterium, produces tryptophan and increases its levels in the bloodstream. This study below has since been replicated, adding to global evidence linking the microbiome-gut-brain axis to stress and mental health disorders. Low diversity in the gut microbiota is now considered a significant biomarker for major depressive disorder. Other mental health and neurodegenerative disorders with significant microbiome-gut-brain ties include: post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, and autism. The microbiome-gut-brain axis also plays a critical role in irritable bowel syndrome, and in understanding the link between mental health disorders and physical illness, such as depression or anxiety co-occurring with inflammatory bowel disease.

Lastly, potential mechanism include changes in microbial content, immune stimulation, neural pathways (via the vagus nerve), tryptophan metabolism, gut hormonal response, and bacterial metabolites.
Most people are unaware of the connection between dyslexia and ADD or ADHD. It has been estimated that between 30 – 60% of kids with dyslexia also have either ADD or ADHD.
“Challenges with processing emotions start in the brain itself. Sometimes the working memory impairments of ADHD allow a momentary emotion to become too strong, flooding the brain with one intense emotion.” Thomas Brown, Ph.D.
Brain imaging studies demonstrate that chemicals that activate reward-recognizing circuits in the brain tend to bind on significantly fewer receptor sites in people with ADHD than do those in a comparison group. People with ADHD are less able to anticipate pleasure or register satisfaction with tasks for which the payoff is delayed.
Few doctors factor in emotional challenges when making an ADHD diagnosis. In fact, current diagnostic criteria for ADHD include no mention of “problems with emotions.” Yet recent research reveals that those with ADHD have significantly more difficulty with low frustration tolerance, impatience, hot temper, and excitability than a control group. Sometimes the working memory impairments of ADHD allow a momentary emotion to become too strong. At other times, working memory impairments leave the person with insufficient sensitivity to the importance of a particular emotion because he or she hasn’t kept other relevant information in mind. Challenges with emotions start in the brain itself. Sometimes the working memory impairments of ADHD allow a momentary emotion to become too strong, flooding the brain with one intense emotion [emotional intensity or insensitivity]. At other times, the person with ADHD seems insensitive or unaware of the emotions of others. Brain connectivity networks carrying information related to emotion seem to be somewhat more limited in individuals with ADHD.

Rejection (Anger/Shame) & Abandonment (Hatred/Grief): Causing Injury to Spirit & Soul
In case you are not completely sure about the difference between the two; the spirit is our power source. When we die, our spirits leave our bodies. Our spirit has emotions and memories and is where we experience God’s presence. Our soul is our mind, will, and emotions. This part of us dies with our bodies, though the memories are still carried in our spirit. Given that we have two different operating systems, it is no wonder that God’s word acts as a sword to divide soul and spirit. [Retrieved from https://www.facebook.com/poemachronicles/posts/3048764585446073]
I believe it is important to make distinctions between the two, in part because healing from each of them takes different approaches. Soulish wounds are common and are often in the realm of what I call experiential knowledge. We get our feelings hurt, and forgiveness or repentance helps to heal the pain. Sometimes facing the injuries in our soul is a necessary growth experience. Facing our fears, learning to handle anger, and controlling our responses to emotional pain are an integral part of the maturing process.
Injuries of the spirit, however, are more difficult to locate and more difficult to heal. In order to fully explore this kind of injury, the nature of the spirit must be understood. Our spirits are our life source. When we become born again, it happens in the arena of the spirit. God unplugs from our human power source and plugs into His power. It is in our spirits that we feel God’s presence and hear His voice. Injuries to our spirits can interrupt our ability to experience God fully, though not always.

AVOID Insensibility: Nurture Their Godly Nature
Anhedonia presents itself in a myriad of disease processes. Anhedonia is the inability to feel pleasure. It’s a common symptom of depression, as well as other mental health disorders. Most people understand what pleasure feels like. They expect certain things in life to make them happy, causing temporal sins and suffer from “mental attitude sin”.

Definition of insensitive

so insensitive as to laugh at someone in pain
: not responsive or susceptible
insensitive to the demands of the public

Basically, I’ve observed learning apathy when just stop caring for others and having emotional agility- They may believe nothing matters especially learning and school; as someone anonymous had written to me, ‘their soul implodes upon itself’!! There’s a lot to be said for Maria Montessori’s observations of trusting the universe along with ‘the child’. If we love and trust our children, this becomes their inner thoughts, ideas, feeling, intents, dreams, and perspectives. When they trust their own mind (including feelings, emotions, thoughts, ideas, perceptions), they can experience the “gifts of dyslexia” and learn anything the way they learn best.
NOTE: “ When your child has a Hypo- or Hyper-, Varied Responsive System Dysfunction (RSD), their learning and motivation (attunement) through their senses decreases due to disconnections to others-themselves along with soul-body disconnection…”. Also, “Relative to the hippocampus, these memories are then stored as polarities in the brain-experiences and reality of consciousness in the past, future, and present. (see RAS specially ACC above- associated with the alta major chakra and shame) ( Retrieved from https://www.frontiersin.org/research-topics/224/the-hippocampus-beyond-recognition-memory)
Disorders of consciousness (DOC) along with Total Functional Dominance System (TFD), in my mind, means the leb is not matured, complete, and unstable leading to unstable health and wellness which lends to diseases, illnesses, learning differences and overall problems and complications in peoples’ lives. Their body, soul, and spirit are disconnected to God and not fully conscious (see Universal/Supra Causal Self: Miracles and Blessings: Supra-Mundane God- https://tcooktutor.edublogs.org/)
One cause of spiritual apathy is sin in the believer’s life. When David sinned, he felt separated from God (Psalm 51:11). As he confessed his sin to God, David prayed for God to “renew a steadfast spirit” within him (verse 10), and he had this request: “Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me” (verse 12). A believer who feels spiritually apathetic should confess any known sin and ask for God’s cleansing and renewal. [Retrieved from https://www.gotquestions.org/spiritual-apathy.html].

GAMMA- Devotion of Bible Study Daily
We hypothesize that, rather than participating in the temporal binding of sensory events as seen in the cortex, gamma band activity manifested in the RAS [I propose ARAS- if done daily] may help stabilize coherence related to arousal, providing a stable activation state during waking and paradoxical sleep. Most of our thoughts and actions are driven by pre-conscious processes. We speculate that continuous sensory input will induce gamma band activity in the RAS (BIBLE STUDY) that could participate in the processes of pre-conscious awareness, and provide the essential stream of information for the formulation of many of our actions.

NEEDING TO BE ADDRESSED- Learning Differences including Our Electromagnetic System
All of our senses and corresponding systems give us vital information about our surroundings. Our EM field gives us “sense” included in our interoception and exteroception. Exteroception is sensitivity to stimuli originating outside of the body. Sensitivity, sensitiveness, sensibility – (physiology) responsiveness to external stimuli; the faculty of sensation; “sensitivity to pain” visual modality, visual sense, vision, sight – the ability to see; the visual faculty. Interoception is the perception of sensations from inside the body and includes the perception of physical sensations related to internal organ function such as heartbeat, respiration, satiety, as well as the autonomic nervous system activity related to emotions (Vaitl 1996; Cameron 2001; Craig 2002; Barrett et al 1997). As well as, our EM and Torsion Field is “our senses” not what we think of as senses as the vehicle (ear, eyes, nose, mouth, skin, balance) that sends messages through our nerve endings, CNS and then to the brain. Our EM and Torsion Field, you will read more on later, includes our chakra system. These senses depend very closely on the thymus, ‘our mind’ to make sense of our own world and experiences, including relationships with others. Our senses give us our perceptions of our universal emotions, plus, are we going to live in fear or love. Our senses include our cellular memory and how we act. Again, for the divergent thinker it is where our mind consciousness makes our decisions, not logic.
“Just as He gave us five natural senses, God also created us with five spiritual senses. In these lessons, Patricia King helps you cultivate your spiritual senses and mentors you in how to see, hear, feel, taste and smell more of the supernatural realm that is all around you. This course is not just about acquiring knowledge, it is meant to be a doorway to encounters that will answer the cry of your heart to know Him and His Kingdom more fully and intimately.” Patricia King
What is the law of conservation of energy? It states that energy can be converted in form, but not created or destroyed. I need for you to think about the universal emotions as energy that can be transformed or changed amongst being hereditarily passed down through generations and stored in the thymus (vagus nerve chakra) as well as translate into our very own DNA. Electromagnetic energy is part of our quantum-self; there are three forms of electromagnetic energy: visible light, infrared radiation, and radio waves. Let’s focus on 7 spheres of invisible light converted into visible light and ‘as you focus, so you are there in superconsciousness’ (see below) as 5 dimensional light- Glory and Victory.

The Holy Place represents the Soul of man (1 Thessalonians 5:23), and the three items of furniture (i.e., Golden Lampstand (1), Table of Showbread (1), Golden Altar of Incense (1)) in the Holy Place represent the process that will lead to this Truth transformation. Therefore, the Holy Place’s “Curtain Screen” symbolically represents Jesus as “The Truth” (John 14:6). “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV
““indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding,” Proverbs 2:3 NIV then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.” Proverbs 2:5 NIV “And he said to the human race, “The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.” Job 28:28. The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that wee pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil [placed in the middle of the temples outer court]. https://www.bible.com/en-GB/bible/111/GEN.2.9.NIV
The tree of knowledge of good/evil:
(PONS) good and evil; Wisdom- fear the Lord
(ARAS/THYMUS) Understanding- shun evil
Understanding and Knowledge basically, is wisdom of Good (awe of The Lord) and having the knowledge of shunning Evil (caution of The Devil).

The Veil (s)
The veil separating the Holy Place- “Inner Santuary” from the Most Holy Place is also symbolic of man’s spiritual heart [aka Thymus] (1). Man’s spiritual heart connects the spirit and the soul, similar to the physical brain connecting the body and a man’s soul (Hebrews 4:12). The Holy of Holies represents the Spirit of man (1 Thessalonians 5:23). This is where God the Holy Spirit dwells in the Christian upon salvation (aka, baptized with the Holy Spirit) (1). The church of Jesus Christ is a spiritual temple made of “living stones . . . Being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 2:5). Not only is the church as a whole or as the local body the dwelling place of God’s presence, but individual believers are also to consider themselves the temple of God’s Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19; cf. 2 Corinthians 6:16, NLT). Lastly, Yahweh [God] would write his law upon the hearts of men (rather than on tables of stone), and all would know God directly and receive his forgiveness.
Like Joel Osteen says, Remember, what people did or didn’t do to you doesn’t determine your worth. What you did or didn’t do yourself doesn’t determine your worth, either. Your worth comes from your Creator, the Most High God who breathed His life into you. He crowned you with His favor. He calls you a masterpiece. Don’t go around ashamed, guilty or condemned; shake that off! If you’ve made a mistake, repent and do better. The next time you think, “Shame on you,” remember that Jesus paid a great price to take shame off you!

Discipline is defined as “training expected to produce a specific character or pattern of behavior.” Discipline is not part of the sin nature, but it is a natural component of the Christian life. The foremost of the disciplines is that involving the Word of God and constitutes the reading, study, memorization, and meditation of Scripture. Scripture memorization is also essential. We always have the freedom to choose what we place in our minds. The second discipline is that of prayer. Our prayers are a spiritual communion with God through means of thanksgiving, adoration, supplication, petition, and confession. Taken together, the spiritual disciplines of prayer and the Word will provide us with a rewarding program which will lead to godly living, praise, submission, service, and celebration of our salvation and the God who provided it.

Body of Christ- “The Way” (Joy) =Gifts
- Affirmations of Authority
- I am Worthy
- Mercy= forgiveness, justice, knowledge, unconditional Love (releases anger/strength)
- I am Enough
- Grace= freedom, abundance, and devotion (releases shame/empathy)

- dysgraphia, dysphasia, cp, self-regulation, attention & executive functioning
Including “the Senses”:
The vestibular system is a sensory system that is responsible for providing our brain with information about motion, head position, and spatial orientation; it also is involved with motor functions that allow us to keep our balance, stabilize our head and body during movement, and maintain posture. Awareness of body balance and movement are monitored by the vestibular system. The vestibular senses (the sensations of body rotation and of gravitation and movement) arise in the inner ear; the sense organs are the hair cells that send out signals over the auditory nerve. The somatosensory system is the part of the sensory system concerned with the conscious perception of touch, pressure, pain, temperature, position, movement, and vibration, which arise from the muscles, joints, skin, and fascia. The tactile stimuli are detected by mechanoreceptors and produce sensations of touch and pressure. The proprioceptive system is located in our muscles and joints. It provides us with a sense of body awareness and detects/controls force and pressure. The proprioceptive system also has an important regulatory role in sensory processing, as proprioceptive input can assist in controlling responses to sensory stimuli. The proprioceptive sense tells us about our body position. It is stimulated every time we move. Each time we use our muscles or stretch and bend our joints. Receptors for this sense are all over our body, deep within our joints and muscles. The tactile system refers to our sense of touch. Tactile doesn’t just refer to our hands! The main way we perceive this input is through our skin, which has many receptors all over our bodies for all different kinds of sensations. Tactile sense related to touch, specifically the information received from varying pressure or vibration against the skin. Tactile sensation is considered a somatic sensation, meaning it originates at the surface of the body, rather than internally. (Somatic & Vestibular Issues See Pons including Basal Ganglia Below)

The visual system comprises the sensory organ (the eye) and parts of the central nervous system for visual processing. Again, remember the proprioception also referred to as kinaesthesia (or kinesthesia), is the sense of self-movement and body such as visual sense and the vestibular system, to create an overall representation of body position, movement, and acceleration. The auditory system is the sensory system for the sense of hearing. It includes both the sensory organs (the ears) and the auditory parts of the sensory system. The auditory parts help us to process sounds and language. Auditory sense is the ability to hear; the auditory faculty; auditory modality, sense of hearing, hearing. auditory system – the sensory system for hearing sense modality, sensory system, modality – a particular sense.

God, what’s my (Your) purpose? What are my wishes? (Higher Purpose & Will- Acceptance of Christ Center and His Will & Purpose)
The olfactory system, or sense of smell, is the sensory system used for smelling (olfaction). Olfaction sense is one that has directly associated specific organs. Most mammals and reptiles have a main system and an accessory olfactory system. The gustatory system is the sensory system responsible for the perception of taste and flavor. In humans, the gustatory system is composed of taste cells in the mouth (which sense the five taste modalities: salty, sweet, bitter, sour, and umami), several cranial nerves, and the gustatory cortex. There are tons of research on how olfactory & gustatory senses are related to emotions. “The fact that the olfactory system is closely linked with limbic brain regions mediating emotion, memory, and behavior (Carmichael et al., 1994; LeDoux, 2000; Eichenbaum et al., 2007) suggests a robust pathway by which nasal breathing could even shape rhythmic electrical activity in downstream limbic areas, with corresponding effects on cognitive functions.” [Reteived from https://www.jneurosci.org/content/36/49/12448?fbclid=IwAR0gqnyZ9b_0_ViS_yIa0186bY8Wkax6eZ_joF2fxTGLZqe8ZR5yO_pIvuI].

28 – NEEDING TO BE ADDRESSED- Our Dysregulation In OUR Biofield “Our Senses” (see chakras below)
29 – 3.1 Biofield illustration
Our Chakra “Energy”-“Divine Light” Centers & System (also see Thymus- the wheel)
Soma Chakra & RAS w/ HPA
The tone “La” is spiritual Seat of Consciousness- directly related to the principle of light. Solfeggio 852 Hz. The frequency is in communication with ones’ Spirit. In Spirit of Jesus, this creates awareness and opens the person to Spiritual experiences. All knowledge manifested as “standardized field”. As a result, it opens the high heart to healing energies. On the physical plane, it’s the highest center of command for the central nervous system (Sympathetic Functioning Dominance).
VIBRATING THE SOMA CHAKRA ALLOWS CELLS TO TRANSFORM INTO A HIGHER LEVEL OF SYSTEMS.
Alta Major Chakra & Pons w/ ACC
This “Om” or “Aum” is of Enlightenment of the Absolute- Divine Consciousness (same as an infant/toddlers fontanel). It’s 963 Hz. It’s the infinite which is the past, present, and future. Furthermore, it vibrates the thymus, throat and skull- cerebrum including the basal ganglia, pituitary and pineal gland including all the senses. Helps with the secretion of hormones such as melatonin and serotonin. On a spiritual level, it connects us to God and the purist being of authentic-self. Also, you are enlightened that Everything is inside you and your soul’s work or purpose. (Parasympathetic Functioning Dominance). Note: The carotid body is a chemoreceptor located in the adventitia of the bifurcation of the common carotid artery. Chemoreceptor function: Carotid body monitors the blood’s pH, pCO2, and pO2 and thereby modulates cardiovascular and respiratory function primarily through sympathetic tone.

Learning Differences including Our Chakra Systems & The Vagal Tone
The chakras spin like a wheel which fuels our MIND (thymus) and EM and Torsion Field. The chakras spins like a wheel and sets our minds’ vagal tone (ultimately thymus) which can be Hypo- or Hyper-, Varied. The chakras need to be balanced and equalized for our mind (thymus) not to be dysregulating our senses nor other systems. When your child has a Hypo- or Hyper-, Varied Responsive System Dysfunction (RSD), their learning and motivation (attunement) through their senses decreases due to disconnections to others-themselves along with soul-body disconnection of consciousness. The hypo-Anger Sympathetic Functional Dominance (SFD) means certain chakras (energy centers-wheels) are spinning too fast in which the lower self requires strength. The hypo-Shame Parasympathetic Functional Dominance (PFD) means they are spinning too low and need empathy. If varied Total Functional Dominance (TDF), the lower self (1st-8th chakras) are going deactivated or going inactive along with thymus and require both strength and empathy including joy, bliss, and peace. Note: the 8th chakra includes the vagus nerve (thymus), in turn includes alta major and soma chakras.
Wherever the spirit would go, they would go, and the wheels would rise along with them, because the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. https://www.bible.com/en-GB/bible/111/EZK.1.20.NIV
The word monergism comes from a combination of the Greek terms for “one” and “energy.” Combined, they mean “a single force.” When applied to salvation, monergism implies that God is entirely, completely, and solely responsible for any person’s salvation. This view contrasts with synergism (“a combined force”). Synergism suggests salvation is accomplished through a cooperative act of God and man.

According to my friend, Vishwas Asolkar, for each stage in the process of spiritual growth you need ‘the purity of thoughts, cleansing process and meditation at such phases which are continuous and dynamically evolving.’ Also, ‘Perhaps, we can develop Cosmic Intelligence by reaching to the Eternal State of Love, Joy, and Peace with Grace and Mercy of Lord with Simple pure Devotional and Love.. Through suffering due to a pair of opposites would exist to reminder us to intensify love and Devotional Energies dynamically…’ [Goodness rather than] attachment to ego, the need elimination and training the path towards brightness of Wisdom. I say, “That’s Imagination- that wisdom from the drawing wasn’t intelligence (but Holy Spirit- moved the hand). People have much of the intelligence but the Holy Spirit- done by prayer, praise and worship.”

Our Electromagnetic System “Our Senses”& The Brain
Our Electromagnetic System “Our Senses” affects other parts of the brain (see below) that have a part in some of the most important aspects of learning, which includes the following tasks:
Analysis (break down category and sequencing)
Memory/Learning (short and long-term memory)
Autonomy (meaning) and Attunement (motivation)
ALSO EXHIBIT (Specifically):
Working Memory Impairments
Specific Language & Speech Impairments
Weak Phonological Awareness
Executive Functioning and Sensory Issues

Anxious? Goal Is A Neutral State Of Calm and Equanimity
31 – Image 3.4 Note: Limbic system up for sympathetic state and down for parasympathetic, neutral in equalized
Sympathetic State (Mental Bodies)- anger, fight and flight, hyperactive thymus (upper-heart chakra) resulting in hyperactive systems and senses.
Parasympathetic State (Emotional Bodies)- shame, freeze, hypoactive thymus (upper-heart chakra) resulting in hypoactive systems and senses.
GOAL: A Neutral State, calm or at “peace” when learning under stress, of equanimity of the structures and interacting areas of the limbic system are involved in learning such as motivation/meaning (Autonomy- Will), emotion (Atunement), and memory (Mind). The limbic system is where the subcortical structures meet the cerebral cortex. … The limbic system also interacts with the basal ganglia. Also, they need to avoid insensitivity.
A neutral state includes the thymus (vagus Nerve Chakra) as well as the crown chakra. See the Functional System Dominance (FSD) below as well information above with the Corpus Callosum including coronal suture; sagittal suture; pineal gland; hypothalamus; pituitary gland.  SEE BELOW

32 – Crown Neutral State Retrieved from https://sway.office.com/tye5JiEkb6nsRTqg
NOT A Functional System Dominance (FSD)- when the RAS & ACC (anger)/HPA (shame) and the brain stem (reptilian brain) regulates our sympathetic (anger) and parasympathetic (shame) systems as it responds to stress: such as when reading. It also acts as a vehicle for sensory information. Note: Students with Sympathetic Functional System Dominance (anger-SFD) have mostly hyper-sensory processing and Parasympathetic Functional System Dominance (shame-PFD) has hypo-sensory processing and Total Functional System Dominance (both anger and shame- TFD) and varied processing. This disequilibrium of the systems can make appropriate learning behavior more or less challenging such as: self-regulation, attention and executive functioning, oppositional and aggressive behavior, anxiety and possibly even depression.
NOR A Responsive System Dysfunction (RSD)
Lastly, it helps to be familiar with the midbrain (mammalian brain) which includes: medulla oblongata and pons do their jobs effectively such as…
Basal ganglia- regulating motor functions. The “basal ganglia” refers to a group of subcortical nuclei responsible primarily for motor control, as well as other roles such as motor learning, executive functions and behaviors, and emotions. Students with Sympathetic Functional System Dominance (anger-SFD) have mostly hyper-sensory processing and hyperactivity in their proprioceptive, somatic, vestibular, and gross-motor abilities (ADHD- hyperactive type & cerebral palsy) and Parasympathetic Functional System Dominance (shame- PFD)- have mostly hypo-sensory processing and hypoactivity in their proprioceptive, somatic, vestibular, and fine-motor abilities (ADHD-inattentive type & dysgraphia). Varied is, of course, Total Functional System Dominance which is most common with dysgraphia (anger and shame- TFD).
Hippocampus- Parasympathetic Functional System Dominance (shame- PFD)- have mostly hypo-sensory processing and hypoactivity of the hippocampus which helps humans process and retrieve two kinds of memory, declarative memories, and spatial relationships. Declarative memories are those related to facts and events. Examples include learning how to memorize speeches or lines in a play. Spatial relationship memories involve pathways or routes. Spatial relationship memories appear to be stored in the right hippocampus. The hippocamp is also where short-term memories are turned into long-term memories. Relative to the hippocampus, these memories are then stored as polarities of time & space in the brain-experiences and reality of consciousness the past, future and present. (see RAS specially ACC above- associated with the alta major chakra and shame). Note: Students with learning differences, neurodivergency have problems with perceptual ability, time & space awareness, executive functioning, and memory (also see PONS and Thymus below).

In Alzheimer’s disease, tau and another protein called amyloid-beta build up into tangles and plaques—known collectively as aggregates.
Interesting Research- Dementia, those with memory loss, they did have faster thinning of the entorhinal cortex due to amyloid level as well as brain shrinkage of the hippocampus. Relevantly, the Wnt pathway has been recognized as critical for the central nervous system development, several Wnt components retain their expression in the adult brain, including the hippocampus, and have proven to be fundamental in both the development and function of synapses (Inestrosa and Arenas, 2010; Inestrosa and Varela-Nallar, 2015). Altogether, these findings strongly suggest that Wnt signaling might be down-regulated during aging, leading to increased vulnerability of the neural network and increasing the risk for the onset and progression of age-related pathologies, such as AD. Wnt inhibitors, including the secreted-frizzled-related protein 1 and 2 (SFRP-1 and SFRP-2) and Dickkopf-1 (Dkk-1), all them antagonists at the cell surface. As a result, mice deficient in Dkk-1 exhibit enhanced spatial working memory and memory consolidation and also show improvements in affective behavior (Caricasole et al., 2003, 2004) [Retrieved from Scienmag. “SCIENMAG.” What Comes First, Beta-Amyloid Plaques or Thinking and Memory Problems?, apple.news/A0bfYT-YLR2u8kRquMsjKRA; Scienmag. “SCIENMAG.” What Comes First, Beta-Amyloid Plaques or Thinking and Memory Problems?, apple.news/A0bfYT-YLR2u8kRquMsjKRA?fbclid=IwAR2; https://www.alz.org/media/documents/alzheimers-facts-and-figures.pdf; https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpsyt.2021.737270/full?fbclid=IwAR1M2cFp6D3BRbSd4rBFnJs-UxFBBG-CDWIoxP38tUYq5UNuY5mgQoQcsfQ].

“Young children who are neglected or maltreated have abnormal patterns of cortisol production. Also, a family’s experience of economic hardship is associated with elevated cortisol levels among children. A mother’s depression during her child’s early years can lead to even higher cortisol levels. Under such conditions, the child becomes more vulnerable to a range of stress-related disorders affecting both mental health (e.g., depression, anxiety disorders, alcoholism, drug abuse) and physical health (e.g., cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke).” Also, in the early years, Comfort seeking may be difficult for people with intellectual or multiple disabilities, because they are often less securely attached or they lack the behaviors to seek comfort. In general, the experience of stress, coping with stress, attachment behaviors and disabilities seem to be closely related in this population (Janssen et al., 2002; Schuengel and Janssen, 2006; Schuengel et al., 2013; Giltaij et al., 2016).

Pineal Body, Pituitary & Adrenal Glands (see hypothalamus below)- synthesizes hormones such as our melatonin, serotonin, and dopamine and cortisol which helps you respond to stress (reading for example) and has many other important functions. Acetylcholine and dopamine are the bridge of the synaptic gap between neurones, are the ‘neurotransmitters in mind’ that form the substance of the volume, which is essential for consciousness. Also melatonin studies recently show that melatonin exhibits many bioactivities, such as antioxidant activity, anti-inflammatory characteristics, boosting immunity, anticancer activity, cardiovascular protection, anti-diabetic, anti-obese, neuroprotective and anti-aging activity. Note: Students with (anger) Sympathetic Functional System Dominance (SFD) are deficient in dopamine, melatonin, and have hyer-norepinephrine production (diligence- fight, flight, flee & hyperarousal). Students with (shame) Parasympathetic Functional System Dominance (PFD) are deficient in serotonin, melatonin, and have hypo-norepinephrine production (hypoarousal, memory retrieval, diligence/motivation-freeze). Note: The pineal gland helps with a meditative state if the head is covered- it’s great for Calm (I will write more about calm ahead! Varied is, of course, Total Functional System Dominance (TFSD) which is most varied in hormones and the hardest time being calm with mood swings along gaining equanimity also can be diagnosed congenital adrenal hyperplasia.

Theory of Positive Disintegration- A theory of emotional development from lower to a higher level of psychological functioning, proposed by K. Dabrowski. The core idea of the theory is that structures of a lower level must be dismantled before structures of a higher level can be erected. The theory emphasizes the role of inner conflict, moral sensitivity, compassion, and self-judgment in the personal growth of creative [imaginative] people and spiritual seekers.

The limbic system is involved in processing both emotion and memory. … The midbrain is comprised of structures located deep within the brain located by the pons , between the …
Thalamus- integrates and sends sensory information such as autonomic functions (para/sympathetic) aka sensory relay nucleus.
Basal ganglia- group of structures linked to the thalamus in the base of the brain and involved in coordination of movement.
Olivary body- motor learning and perception of sound (auditory and visual processing specifically).
Hypothalamus- See Thymus above- speed processing of information also you need to remember the important RAS info. which includes the following excerpt: ‘The RAS is said to be the gas pedal [slow, accelerate or varied cognitive speed processing] that ignites the diencephalon (the hypothalamus and thalamus) as well as, the cortical areas [where all long-term memory/storage takes place] of the brain’ (Petty 1996). The lateral hypothalamus mediates an array of cognitive and physical processes that widely projects throughout the nervous system. Thyrotropin-releasing hormone is one of the smallest hormones in the body, consisting of a miniature chain of just three amino acid building blocks. It is made by a cluster of nerve cells in the hypothalamus, an area at the base of the brain just above the pituitary gland. This nerve cell cluster is known as the paraventricular nucleus. The nerve fibres that come out of it carry the thyrotropin-releasing hormone and release it into the blood surrounding the pituitary gland, where it has its most important action. This is to regulate the formation and secretion of thyroid stimulating hormone in the pituitary gland, which in turn regulates the production of thyroid hormones in the thyroid gland. Thyrotropin-releasing hormone is very short-lived, lasting for a matter of two minutes and travelling less than an inch in the bloodstream to the pituitary gland before it is broken down. Also, includes the hippocampus (see above)- which is in the limbic system and regulates perceptions (such as the perception of shame, long-term memory). Students with Sympathetic Functional System Dominance (SFD) react with anger and have hyper-speed (accelerated) processing and long-term memory issues (both also varied from trying to regulate accelerated-slow so one and so forth). Students with Parasympathetic Functional System Dominance (PFD) filters with perceptions of shame, have slow speed processing (also the controversial- slow cognitive speed tempo) and bypassing the facts needed for short-term memory (effects sequencing skills, background knowledge)-headed straight to filtering based on meaning and perceptions (again shame)- short term memory issues are actually a prefrontal lobe executive functioning issues. Again, the frontal lobe to perceive the universal emotions which are the following: anger, strength, joy, bliss, shame, empathy, courage, compassion, and harmony (executive functioning logic through analysis or evaluation) where the mind deems how important (what or why) [Retrieved from https://www.yourhormones.info/hormones/thyrotropin-releasing-hormone/].

Discovering how to live a blameless and pure life once realizing the issues of learning and relationships HAD TO HAPPEN and ALL problems with others such as: being the teachers, school and learning, relatives such as brothers/sisters, or the other kids. It really isn’t others or the neurodifference itself; It is our understanding of the greater purpose in life (as many other’s stories), so for the greater good to Glorify His Kingdom!
Gould says, when we talk about the transformation of the whole person—body, soul, and spirit—it has radical implications….What is the relationship of “nature” to a “person”? What is an “energy”? How are a nature’s energies expressed? The proper definition of nature, energy and personhood form the cornerstone for a proper definition of salvation and the goal of our existence in God. Likewise Gould says, These energies that infused Moses—and we said it before—they are not created energies. This is God.,..later, Robinson says, glory of God, the energies of God- Gould replies…[yes] The shakinah glory [aka Holy Spirit, Mother Cosmos in other traditions) [Retrieved from https://www.ancientfaith.com/podcasts/ourlife/relics_part_4_persons_essence_and_energies].
Key Contemplation: Stay Blameless & Pure Know It ALL Had to Happen
Intention: God Awareness and Unity
Affirmation: I AM THAT…I AM SAVED- I AM COVERED IN THESE INTENTIONS IN MY BODY and SOUL WHICH INCLUDE THOUGHTS, IDEAS, MESSAGES, VIRTUES, FEELINGS, DREAMS AND VISIONS (see image 4.0 below)
Goal: Daily Functional System Regulation (DFSR) =Thymus (Soul) to -Pons (MidBrain) to -RAS (Brain stem) VERSUS
7 Natural Natural Rays of Light SOLUTION ABC’s & PYAM DAILY: HOW THE SYSTEMS, FACULTIES & FUNCTIONS SHOULD WORK
The Solution: When using the etherical body, ALL our systems and senses will function equalized, activated, and balanced. The triune brain which is the forebrain (thymus aka reptilian), (pons- aka limbic system), and the neomammalian complex (RAS- aka neocortex) needs to be working in an upward function. With a functional system, the child [or adult] can trust themselves and their gifts and learning uniquenesses through spiritual mindset with self-directed neuroplasticity through ABC’s and gain God awareness (eventually unity) through PYAM Daily.
Highest Heaven- (Part of Heaven 3) God (Etherical Body) THYMUS aka reptilian (H. Heart & Mind- authentic breath), “The Way”. A clean heart- brings purity.
(Heaven 1-3) Holy Ghost (Emotional Body) PONS aka limbic system (Body & Mind- breath), “The Truth”. A pure mind- brings blamelessness.
“The Ego” JESUS (Mental Body) RAS the aka neocortex (Body & Brain- breath), “The Light”. A clean heart and pure mind with blamelessness brings righteousness (salvation). Salvation brings Joy because YOU ARE LIVING, no longer dead.
From what you’ve read, you will understand: heaven (actually open heaven, when revealed), the universe, each other, our DNA (ourselves), God all are ONE- in the Spirit. “Wherever the spirit would go, they would go, and the wheels would rise along with them, because the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.” https://www.bible.com/en-GB/bible/111/EZK.1.20.NIV Isaiah 64:1 is a primary passage: “Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains would tremble before you!” Other open heaven passages cited include Ezekiel’s vision in the first chapter of his book, Jesus’ baptism in Matthew 3:16, Jesus’ promise to Nathanael in John 1:51, Stephen’s martyrdom in Acts 7:54–61, John’s vision in Revelation 4, and “Jacob’s ladder” in Genesis 28.
Abnormal wiring of CCK+ basket cells disrupts Spatial Information Coding: REFLECT On The Problem: As well, The 7 Natural Rays of Light
“Developmental disruption of the connectivity of these cells diminished the power of theta oscillations during exploratory behavior, disrupted spatial coding by place cells, and caused selective alterations in spatial learning and memory in adult mice. These results suggest that normal integration of CCK+ basket cells in cortical networks [ARAS- see below] is key to support spatial coding in the hippocampus.” Retrieved from del Pino, I., Brotons-Mas, J., Marques-Smith, A. et al.

Is there a worry gene? Yes… Silence this BDNF gene(common with OCD, Anxiety, Depression) doing the above activities. Researchers at Yale have identified a gene mutation for “rumination” — the kind of chronic worry in which people obsess over negative thoughts. It’s a variation of a gene known as BDNF that’s active in the hippocampus, an area of the brain involved in thinking and memory. Retrieved from https://www.wsj.com/articles/SB120035992325490045

Abstract Thinking & Mental Health
Abstract thinking is the ability to understand concepts that are real, such as freedom (grace) or vulnerability (humility), but which are not directly tied to concrete physical objects and experiences. Abstract thinking is the ability to absorb information from our senses [learning] and make connections to the wider world.
Some neurological conditions may interfere with your ability to think abstractly. Please read the research about Abstract Thought and Eye Gazing: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3997200/
- Autism spectrum disorder.ResearchersTrusted Source have found that some people with autism spectrum disorder may have trouble with concepts and problem-solving.
- Some forms of abstract thinking, particularly those involved in interpreting social situations, Trusted Source may be limited by schizophrenia.
- Traumatic or organic brain injuries. Injuries from accidents and prenatal exposures, including fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, can impact the areas of the brain that make abstract thinking possible.
- Intellectual disabilities. Individuals with intellectual impairment often have difficulties using and understanding abstract thinking skills.
- Often the parts of the brain involved in many types of dementia are the same parts that control abstract thinking skills.
Abstract thinking is defined as the ability to think beyond the immediate, specific stimulus situation and to think about situations in general, symbolic modes . … Deficits in abstract thinking are prominent in patients with schizophrenia, particularly in chronic patients and patients with severe symptoms  [Retrieved from https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3997200/].
Note: God being unseen but made real by Faith and the Truth can be hard to know for some. Don’t mistake, you can still receive and posses mercy & grace, but you may not be cognizant or aware. What is abstract cognitive thinking? Abstract thinking refers to a cognitive concept involving higher‐order, or complex, thoughts. … The generation of concepts, or abstract ideas, indicates an ability to progress beyond concrete thinking. The concrete interpretation of a concept involves a focus on the salient, obvious characteristics. [Retrieved from https://link.springer.com/referenceworkentry/10.1007%2F978-0-387-33754-8_2].
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” https://www.bible.com/en-GB/bible/111/HEB.11.1.NIV
What develops a flexible mind and abstract thinking/reasoning? Acknowledging God with daily scripture reading. – Tricia Cook

Affirmation of Faith
The internal flame is the divine stamp of infinite and complete wholeness with God. There’s peace and comfort knowing He is my help, lamp, and savior!! The way to a complete functional system again is replacing anger with strength and shame with empathy (adults hatred with courage and grief with compassion). Why anger with strength? Have you seen a paranoid, anxious, angry person, who’s absorbed in their “ego”, ever want to face and examine their anger feelings and triggers? It takes a lot of strength to do this! Why shame with empathy? Have you ever seen a withdrawn, self-absorbed, and ashamed person who’s almost defeated, ever want to have empathy, for themselves (or others)? Jesus has already taken their suffering, so stay blameless. Those with a SFD, PFD, or TFD just need to accept Him into their heart, actually thymus (internal-sacred flame- high heart, thymus) and ask for help by growing in eternal strength and wisdom to increase their own peace and comfort (harmony) while gaining infinite “wholeness”. This is the divine stamp of grace and mercy that we are promised!
Peace With God
Peace From God
Peace with Others
‘For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell; and, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say , whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. ‘ Colossians 1:19-20 https://www2.bible.com/bible/1/COL.1.19-20 [Retrieved from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2z9OXwWP5BM].
Mark Briscoe talks about faith: As Paul says, “Not all men have faith.” Nor are we born with faith, but again we must listen to what God has spoken. God’s Word tells us in Romans, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.” There are no short cuts. Whether we hear or read someone preach the Word, it is the Word of God which produces faith. So when we read the scriptures, we are hearing God’s word spoken to us and builds our faith. People say that Christianity is a personal relationship with God and that is true. The circle of communication must be completed. When we pray we talk to God and when we read the Bible God speaks to us.

What is a Magnanimous Spirit?
37 – Image 4.5 Stages of Evolution of Soul Energy
Spiritually, It’s the spiral which represents a connectivity with the divine, spiraling from the outer ego (the outside world) into the inner soul (cosmic awareness, spiral awakening and enlightenment). The spiral represents evolution and growth of the spirit. It is a symbol of change and development. Where you come united with God via Jesus, who is the Bridge!! My Good Freind Vishwas Asolkar says, ‘… [Magnanimous Spirit is the] awareness and Vision with experience or understanding … Whereas the Discs or Chakras [wheels] are the gates to balance the Subtle Energies and push to higher intelligence [and imagination], higher endurance to be at the core where Jesus or Master lives in the form of Joy Bliss and Peace within that controls all energies by way of His Love towards devotion, trust, and care externally and internally… joy, bliss, and peace form a transparent medium of all energies!’ Note: The Holy Spirit works in us, conforming us into the image of Christ (Romans 8:29).
Definition of magnanimous
1 : showing or suggesting a lofty and courageous spirit the irreproachable lives and magnanimous sufferings of their followers— Joseph Addison 2 : showing or suggesting nobility of feeling and generosity of mind too sincere for dissimulation, too magnanimous for resentment— Ellen Glasgow
‘Like My Good Freind Vishwas Asolkar says, For [It’s the] Internal Nature of Soul and External grace of the Lord’s field of Absolute Truth. It’s the field of Super Conscious Energy of Love for Jesus’. Which is the field of state of Cosmicity where the Lord, Master or Jesus with his love takes you and [others] closer to Him [Like a Centrifugal Force- see image] … Thus, we receive pulses of waves of joy, a spiritual union of energies of Lord and His Field of Absolute Truth. Likewise, ‘Our Soul is in union with God always, God being the Supreme…the [courage, generosity, etc.] energy is given by the Field of Super Consciousness & Absolute Truth which is commanded [His Commands], cared by God. It’s He who gives us the feel of His care, love, protection, and Salvation. Through faith, your desires, and thoughts will automatically apply to His Commands (Which is His Desire For Us).
Those He has called to Glory (Bread) Through Believing in The Word of God- He gives peace through you by mercy (strength) and courage (might). This is salvation that brings Him Glory.

REMEMBER: People are using their mental and emotional bodies to learn, not their etherical body (etheric). Also, as one of My Elbert trainers says, ‘it’s time to release the wisdom-filled strategies that God has given you…the hidden parts of yourself while at the same time learning to see, hear and recognize the greater content that is God.’
I’m offering courses and professional development opportunities…that’s right, with consulting opportunities. I’m interested in guiding global governments to embrace a neuropedagogy such as mine. -Tricia Cook
