In broad terms, the findings showed “significant genetic overlap” between anxiety and conditions including PTSD and depression that frequently co-occur with anxiety. This fact, the researchers said, “provides biological evidence that this known clinical comorbidity is due at least in part to shared genetic etiology [causation].” The team found strong positive correlations genetically between participants with recent anxiety symptoms and depressive symptoms and/or neuroticism.

In the portion of the combined sample that is of European ancestry, the strongest GWAS correlation with anxiety was a gene called SATB1, which is thought to influence the activity (“expression”) of multiple other genes involved in neuronal development. One such “influenced” gene is called CRH, which encodes the Corticotropin Releasing Hormone, a protein that plays a central role in the operation of the body’s HPA axis, the linked system in which the hypothalamus, pituitary, and adrenal glands modulate stress and the fear/anxiety response. The protein product of a gene called CRHR1, the researchers note, has been a proposed treatment target for anxiety and stress-related disorders.

According to Mark Briscoe, Jesus experienced anger and grief. His anger was a righteous anger for it had selfless reasons. He experience grief when Lazarus died but not for Lazarus but for the people who loved Lazarus. He knew he would raise Lazarus. But looking at the people who wept he was grieved. And you find the shortest verse in the Bible. “Jesus wept.” He didnt feel shame or guilt for they imply He would have sinned.

Conscience is the built-in power of our minds to pass moral judgments on ourselves, approving or disapproving our feelings, actions, thoughts, and plans, and telling us, if what we have done is assessed as wrong, that we deserve to suffer for it. Conscience has in it two elements: an awareness of certain things as being right or wrong, and an ability to apply laws and rules to specific situations. Conscience insists on judging us, and insist on judging us by the highest standard we know. So we sometimes call it God’s voice in the soul, and in a sense it is.

Paul says that God has written a certain knowledge of His laws on every human heart [Rom. 2:14–15], and experience confirms this. But conscience can be misinformed, or conditioned to regard evil as good, or become seared and dull through repeated sin [1 Tim. 4:2]. The judgments of conscience are only to be received as God’s voice when they match God’s own truth and law in Scripture. The conscience must be educated to judge scripturally.

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 and thinking 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.

Yes, I do believe the disconnect for students, families, and schools. It’s in the Spiritual Development…

The disconnect happens in these domains: (intellectual)- what is right, (moral) what is good, and (imaginative) His Divine Will for us in design, plan, and purpose!

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.

What Is Conscience? Billy Graham’s Daily Devotion, Nov 09, 2021 Having a good conscience . . . –1 Peter 3:16 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 the built-in power of our minds to pass moral judgments on ourselves, approving or disapproving our feelings, actions, thoughts, and plans, and telling us, if what we have done is assessed as wrong, that we deserve to suffer for it. Conscience has in it two elements: an awareness of certain things as being right or wrong, and an ability to apply laws and rules to specific situations. Conscience insists on judging us, and insist on judging us by the highest standard we know. So we sometimes call it God’s voice in the soul, and in a sense it is.

What is Conscience/Righteousness- Intellectual (Pure Heart)? The moral feeling, by which we mean a sense of the difference between right and wrong, would seem to be a part of the native furnishing of the mind. 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. [Retrieved from https://www.internationalstandardbible.com/R/righteousness.html].

What is Self Realization/Blamelessness- Imagination aka “The Simple” (Clean Mind)? 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.

Justifying Faith- RAS/GUT (anger) Strength, Might, Simple (Grace Upon (to) Grace-Divine Love)

Indwelling Faith- PONS (shame) Peace, Authority, Absolute (Glory Upon (to) Glory-Divine Honor)

Saving Faith- Thymus (both) Joy, Power, Complete (Faith Upon (to) Hope- Divine Majesty)

Research On:

Im In Christ and Live by His Understanding & Virtue (Peace, Strength, Joy):

Strength-Might-Simple (Might-Knowledge)– “The Avenger”, “The Builder”- “The Originator to the ‘First Born’” Jesus’ Mighty Name

Pride/Lying (anger) — — -self-control — — -simple righteousness

Vanity/Slander (anger) — — -kindness — — simple humility

Peace-Authority-Absolute (Authority-Wisdom)– “The Creator”- Almighty God

Envy/Murder (anger) — — patience — — -absolute courage

Greed/Stealing (shame) — — goodness — — absolute compassion

Joy-Power-Complete (Power in God’s Image-Love, Peace, Justice)- “My Friend”-“My Master”, “My Guarantor”, The Lord Jesus Christ

Gluttony/Gossip (shame) — — joy — — complete knowledge

Lust/Adultery (shame) — — -peace — — complete wisdom

Love, Peace, Justice= Bliss-Happiness, Delight, in Holiness and Godly Sincerity, Pleasure in Conquering…Sloth/Anger & Shame both (freedom) — — gentleness/greatness — -Understanding who Jesus IS and rest in Peace Of Christ’s Strength (Harmony)

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 due to learning with trauma 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, my neurodivergent thinking, and holistic wisdom. Where learning is concerned, the “whole person” is important because people are different and so many learn and think 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.

My interest is in helping parents and teachers to understand learning and behavioral challenges and to love learning again. I graduated from Auburn in ECE in 1998. I have been a Montessori teacher here in Birmingham for almost 12 years and have lived in Birmingham for the past 19 years. As an early childhood teacher, I want continue to grow and develop as a constant learner. In 2012, I graduated from Secondary Education with a P-12 Reading Specialist certification the University of Alabama. As a Reading Specialist, I train on diversity and literacy development; I have a specialized knowledge of assessment and diagnosis that is vital for developing, implementing, and evaluating your literacy and neurodiversity behavioral, character development programing. Also, I have varying experiences designing instruction and environments for Montessori and Non-Montessori (OSR-Pre-K) environments. Therefore, I can consult for any environment or setting! In 2013, I attained my highly qualified status in ECE and Reading. In 2013, I also got my Orton-Gillingham AA tutor certification. I currently tutor full-time along with consulting. I have actually been tutoring since 2003. Along with other independent tutoring/interventionist experiences, I have brought dozens of students from an emergent to an advanced reading level! In addition to tutoring, I have provided the reading strengths and needs of my students and share that information to classroom teachers, parents, specialized teachers, and other stakeholders.  Lastly, I have also been a trainer/presenter, since 2008 and really enjoy this aspect of my career. As an experienced trainer, I have trained on many topics including: literacy (the five components), classroom management, positive discipline, diversity character development, Montessori Philosophy, policies and procedures, child development, and Alabama's Pre-k. Take note: Schools and families are desperately looking for an alternative type of affordable multi-sensory, hands-on, and interesting instruction. Currently, I am training and interested in writing on the following topics: A Comparison of Pre-K to Kindergarten; Adolescent Literacy (7th+); Assessment; Developing Readers; Children’s Literature; Classroom Management Techniques; Comprehension; Montessori Philosophy; Environmental Print & Early Writing; Family Attachment; Language and Literacy; Outdoor Classroom; Poetry Writing (7th+); Positive Guidance; Fine-motor Development; Cursive Writing; Creative Writing; Comprehension: Study Skills/Test Taking Strategies; Morphology; Phonics Instruction; Diversity Education; Neurodiversity Education; HandWriting; Reading Strategies; Best Practices P-12.
