Introduction

MY ELBERT: EVERYONE LEARNS BETTER EMBRACING REVOLUTIONARY TEACHING IS The first Specialized Online Coaching Curriculum.  I’ve spent the last 25 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, psychopathology, holism, Evangelical theology, 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 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 atonement meaning 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! Affirmation (Blessing of Thanksgiving, heart):  Do not be conformed to this world ([modern],this age) [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable [right, moral] and perfect Will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]. Romans 12:2 AMPC 

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].

The cerebral cortex is thought to be the seat of conscious  processing in the brain. Rather than being inactivated, specific cells  in the cortex show higher spontaneous activity during general anesthesia  than when awake, and this activity is synchronized across those  cortical cells.  [Retrieved from https://neurosciencenews.com/unconscious-brain-activity-20571/].

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. Retrieved from https://sway.office.com/6BhnVi2YHh09O1v8.

 What is Conscience/Righteousness- Intellectual-Moral aka “The Perfect” (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- Imaginative-Moral 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. [Retrieved from https://andreaoneness.com/self-realization/].

According to Erik Erikson,  during the first years of school, every child must resolve the  conflicts between a positive self-image and feelings of inferiority. If  children succeed in school, they will develop positive feelings about  themselves and believe that they can succeed in life [Retrieved from http://www.ldonline.org/article/19296/].

Likewise, this study aims to investigate the emotional perspective of having  Dyslexia, a specific learning difficulty that not only affects literacy  but many aspects of an individual’s life, from childhood into adulthood [Retrieved from https://www.researchgate.net/publication/290213848_Dyslexia_Investigating_Self Harm_and_Suicidal_ThoughtsAttempts_as_a_Coping_Strategy]

What is neurodiversity?

People  with dyslexia and other forms of neurodiversity have sound and language  processing problems. They will struggle to connect letters to sounds  and, mainly difficulties identifying speech sounds and learning how they  relate to letters and words; as well, those with visual processing  difficulties struggle to understand visual information such as letters,  shapes, or objects and problems processing the graphic symbols (mainly,  problems with convergence). Other difficulties related to the absorption  and processing of sounds [sounds especially can be omitted from words  by the student], students with dyslexia most commonly omit letter  sounds, words, phrases in the middle position, then the end, and least  commonly the beginning. When they omit, they might do sound confusions  such as repetition(s), substitution(s), addition(s) or delete  altogether, on the other hand; transversal(s) and reversal(s) are more  common in students with a visual processing difficulties. P.S. I suggest  -have them remember: if it doesn’t look or sound right reread or  rewrite till your brain feels like “it’s just right” [trust your  brain-you are smart, you can do it, and you are love]. Ask me how I can  help you by tutoring, coaching, consulting and/or training!

What is neurodivergency?

 I  consult to help others discover their own/someone else’s  learning uniquenesses, interest, and how to use their gifts and  strengths. Those with a neurodifference usually have a neurodivergency;  meaning, they often have intuitive and insightful, well-developed social  awareness and emotions while possessing a lexicon of words to help with  the synonymous “why’s of dyslexia”. They also have deep and holistic,  list-form type thinking including: problem-solving and  building/constructing abilities, competitive drive, computer skills, and  gaming strategies. They seek their own endeavors of creative,  imaginative, visual, artistic, and visionary skills while taking on  inventing and innovating pursuits. I can also tell you that they may  excel at thinking of “outside the box” solutions, seeing a problem from  many sides, and patterns/spatial relationships along with the ability to  think in 3 dimensions-using our strong evaluation skills and  imagination (capable of observing patterns of: color, shape, size, dimension, rhythm, meter, tone, and chant). They have an innate ability  for caring for people, animals, and nature [Note: sometimes due to  circumstances they go against their own nature in this respect]. Lastly,  I prepare students with unique learning and neurodifferences to connect  to the world with enrichment classes through my program MY ELBERT.

What is neruopedagogy?

My current practice is a holistic, alternative approach to  being 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 differences. You need to  know that my neuropedagogy is based on the following: my own inductive reasoning, logic of evaluation, outside-of-the box type problem-solving  skills, detective sense contributed to my own gift of neurodivergency, gift of knowledge and wisdom (discernment), countless hours of student observations (Montessori), (w)holism, neuroscientific, neuropsychology, educational  research (Orton-Gillingham and “Science of Reading”), and spiritual/religious studies (Nouthetic Counseling) along  with my perpetual care for the “whole person”. We can identify goals and potential solutions to problems which cause emotional turmoil;  seek to improve communication and coping skills; strengthen self-esteem,  and connection (unity) with God; and promote behavior change and optimal mental health and “wellness”.

κοπιάω  (Strong’s #2872 — Verb — kopiao — kop-ee-ah’-o ) (a) “to grow tired with toil,” Matthew 11:28; John 4:6; revelation 2:3 ,  also means (b) “to bestow labor, work with toil,” Romans 16:6;  Galatians 4:11; in John 4:38 , AV, “bestowed (no) labor,” RV, “have  (not) labored,” and, in the same verse, AV and RV, “labored.” See LABOR ,  TOIL , WEARY.

“Obey God and leave all the consequences to Him.”  “We can be tired, weary and emotionally distraught, but after spending time alone with God, we find that He injects into our bodies energy, power and strength.” Charles Stanley, preacher of His Word- The Gospels. [Retrieved from https://quotestats.com/topic/charles-stanley-quotes/]. Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart (power-joy-pons), and with all thy soul (energy-bliss-thymus), and with all thy mind (power-joy-pons) and strength (body-delight-ras-gut).  Mathew 22:37-39

What is the best way to support those with Neurodevelopmental disorders or Neurodiversity in later onset?

I find the best support includes  understanding the impact that a negative social environment, aka  learning with trauma, has on those who have a neurodiversity, or as I  prefer to say “neurodifferent”. My program, My Elbert, was developed to  help those who feel weak and weary due to being neurodifferent including  those working with them. Mainly, I help others to succeed and employ a  positive attitude towards learning and learning environment. Instead of  allowing shame and anger to overwhelm the learner, I focus on bringing  in positive emotions and teaching methods for instance observing when  they are needing calm delight. As well, help the learner with their  learning difference and change their brain with self-directed neuroplasticity [flexibility and adaptability] and atonement.  I support students with mixed: My Elbert enrichment along with literacy  intervention, and tutoring online classes. These classes/sessions stem  from a hybrid of elements and methods from Montessori- life domains and development with observation, Nouthetic  Counseling- theology, evangelism, behavioral sciences , and Orton-Gillingham methods- practice of reading in research.  I developed this program  due to my own experience and being labeled severely learning disabled.  As  well as, I would like to share I little about myself, I have a  Neurodiversity in Auditory, Visual and Vestibular as well a  Neurodivergency which had made me weak and weary over the span of my life. Basically,  I struggled with anger/shame due to LD (view My Story Of Dyslexia: HERE and ask about my RESUME!)

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. 

     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.

     Superstition  or scruple may lead a person to count as sinful  an action that according to God’s word is not sinful.  But for such a  “weak” conscience [Rom. 14:1-2; 1 Cor. 8:7, 12;]  to go against itself  and do what it mistakenly judges to be wrong would be sin [Rom. 14:23].   Those whose conscience is “weak” should never be pressed to do what  destroys their good conscience.  

     The New Testament ideal is a conscience free from guilt and  able to guide us in  a holy direction.  The conscience can only be freed  from guilt by the power of Christ’s blood.  Once freed and protected in  its freedom by the gift of justification, the conscience is able to  grow through the teaching of Scripture and the means of grace in  Christian life…

Like my  friend, Al Rosenblum wrote, God made us with an empty place in our hearts that only He can fill. He  fills the spiritual need enabling us to operate lovingly and effectively  in our human relationships. The empty place causes us to have  hunger/thirst for love, affection, appreciation, etc.. We use our   to attach to people and things in our world that we believe will fill  our emptiness. Before salvation which happens in a microsecond of time  when we believe the gospel (death, burial, resurrection of Jesus to  resolve our sin debt with God-Father) we are disconnected from God and  can only attach our hunger & faith to people & earthly things of  the world. We attach our hearts to the things of this life and build a  false belief system around the idea that the love of people and possessions  (instead of  God) can make us happy (a lie). We build our entire belief system on lies that we pick up out of the world (this statement  requires considerable explanation). All that we learn & believe that  builds our thinking system before we are saved is devoid of God as the center & purpose and without the Holy Spirit to reveal the divine truths to us. After we are saved we use the same system to learn the same divine ideas that Jesus used in His earthly life so that we can use them too, becoming like Him from the inside out. AGAIN, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart (energy-bliss-thymus), and with all thy soul (power-joy-pons), and with all thy mind (energy-bliss-thymus) and strength (body-delight-ras-gut) [UPWARD FUNCTIONAL SYSTEM– Thymus, Pons, RAS/GUT].  Mathew 22:37-39 

We have all harbored anger and shame in our high heart-mind. On the other hand, “In your anger do not sin” : Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,…” https://www.bible.com/en-GB/bible/111/EPH.4.26.NIV. Jesus works on our “Leb” at night, giving His believers instruction at night and request for us to be in a mindset of Christ the rest of the day! 

In my experience, everyone Who Excels In Learning Has Developed A Unique Sense Of Trust In Themselves Through Jesus, Their Gifts, & How They Process Information!! -Tricia Cook

What are mitochondria?

Mitochondria are  compartmentalized, dual-membrane organelles that are responsible for  most energy production in the cell. Mitochondria contain their own DNA  and ribosomes (RNA).  Their primary function is to convert energy from glucose into ATP via oxidative phosphorylation. Mitochondria also play an  important role in the cellular stress response through processes such as  autophagy, apoptosis, and hypoxia. Mitochondrial dysfunction is implicated in many human diseases including cancer, metabolic syndrome  & neurodegenerative disorders, ex. Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) (Retrieved from https://www.novusbio.com/research-areas/cellular-markers/mitochondrial-markers.html; https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fnmol.2018.00393/full).

Mitochondria have been increasing recognized as important players in the  aging process. Most aging related diseases and particularly  neurodegenerative diseases have mitochondrial involvement. Co-activation- brings the neurons to activation and stimulation of mitochondrial production within the cells which  helps build more efficient, proactive neuronal networks and plasticity.  Mitochondria are the principal synergetic energy generators of cells, and neurons are cells that require a lot of energy. People with depression have fewer mitochondria in their neurons and people with untreated depression have lower levels of protein produced by mitochondria. These help maintain optimal energy production as well as structural integrity and optimal numbers of mitochondria. [Retrieved from https://www.mdpi.com/journal/biology/special_issues/Mitochondria; https://neurosciencenews.com/mitochondira-depression-19710/; https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fnins.2018.00386/full].

A characteristic of diseases such as Alzheimer’s and  Parkinson’s—collectively known as neurodegenerative diseases—is the  build-up of misfolded proteins. These proteins, such as amyloid and tau  in Alzheimer’s disease, form ‘aggregates’ that can cause irreversible  damage to nerve cells in the brain. Protein folding is a normal  process in the body, and in healthy individuals, cells carry out a form  of quality control to ensure that proteins are correctly folded and that  misfolded proteins are destroyed. But in neurodegenerative diseases,  this system becomes impaired, with potentially devastating consequences. As  the global population ages, an increasing number of people are being  diagnosed with dementia, making the search for effective drugs ever more  urgent. However, progress has been slow, with no medicines yet  available that can prevent or remove the build-up of aggregates. [Retrieved from https://neurosciencenews.com/stressed-cells-dementia-protein-folding-20532/].

Ordinarily, there is a balance in the brain between signals that  increase cell activity and ones which suppress it. In epilepsy, the  balance is disturbed, and the nerve cells send signals in an  uncontrolled manner. The ion channel which has mutated in the patient  normally has a dampening effect on nerve signaling. Therefore, a new study sheds light on the biological mechanism behind some genetic forms of epilepsy. [Retrieved from https://neurosciencenews.com/genetics-epilepsy-20646/].

Please Note: A new NIH grant will allow Virginia Tech researchers to explore the mechanisms of social memory in the hippocampus. “Impaired social memory is a phenotype of numerous neurological  disorders, ranging from autism spectrum disorder to schizophrenia and  Alzheimer’s disease,” Farris said. “By unraveling the molecular nuances  underlying healthy memory storage, we aim to pinpoint a host of  potential interventional targets for neurodevelopmental, neurocognitive  and neurodegenerative disease. She [Farris] hypothesizes that these unusual mitochondrial characteristics may be  influencing this brain region’s plasticity – or ability to rapidly  modify synapses, neurochemical portals that mediate communication  between neurons.” [Retrieved from https://neurosciencenews.com/mitochondria-social-memory-19623/].

Ribosomal  RNA is the predominant form of RNA found in most cells; it makes up  about 80% of cellular RNA despite never being translated into proteins  itself. Ribosomes are composed of approximately 60% rRNA and 40%  ribosomal proteins by mass. [Retrieved from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ribosomal_RNA]

Connection Can Be Differentiated & Lost with Self & Others on A Cellular Level: Via Proteomics Degeneration -Tricia Cook

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. Proteomics is the analysis of the entire protein complement of a cell, tissue, or organism under a specific, defined set of conditions. [Retrieved from https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/neuroscience/proteomics].

Epigenetics Modulators?

 A Neutral State, calm delight 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 (Atonement- Will), emotion (Attunement), and memory (Autonomy). The limbic system is where the subcortical structures meet the cerebral cortex. … The limbic system also interacts with the basal ganglia. Also, the need to avoid insensitivity.

Yes, I do believe the disconnect for families, students, and schools and the neurodiverse in general. It’s in the Spiritual Development  part of Nerupedagogy, where the disconnect happens in these domains such  as: (intellectual) what is right, (moral) what is good, and (imaginative) what is His Divine Will for us by in and upon design, plan, and purpose!!!

INTELLECTUAL-  what is right, memory (RAS-ACC & HPA)

Pleading  Disparagement- expression of a low opinion of someone’s thoughts, ideas, &  feelings!! Every cell in your body holds hundreds of pages of information on all levels of your being: physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Cellular memory is a theory that the body’s cells retain memories independently of the brain.  The RAS triangle of well-being—how to promote a healthy flow  between your mind, brain, and relationships in a specific way such as Autonomy=Resilience, Attitude, and Focus!

MORAL- what is good, emotion  (PONS)

Neuroplasticity is the capacity of nerve cells to biologically adapt to circumstances, to change their connections and behavior in response to new information, sensory stimulation, development, damage, or dysfunction. Mindsight, a skill we can all develop to break free from mental patterns that get in the way of living our lives to the fullest; A practical definition of the mind—distilled from a dozen scientific fields; PONS & The RAS promotes a healthy flow between your mind, brain, and relationships in a specific way such as Attunement=Resilience, Attitude, and Attention!

IMAGINATIVE- what is God’s Will, atonement (THYMUS)

Self-directed neuroplasticity and atonement, then, is the ability for the brain to change itself depending on how you direct your thoughts and attention. The THYMUS is the “self-directed” piece refers to your ability to intentionally shape your brain by using it in a specific way such as Autonomy & Attunement= Adaptability (3 A’s)! Meaning, the “whole person”, becoming willing to adapt to Him and allowing him into All consequence made by our own will and choices. Because, this trust will let us know our own truths that basically-We Are Free from the old covet, Sin Laws and Can Come to realize the new covet, Spiritual Laws (water, blood, and Spirit has atoned for us through His resurrection).

Disposition of Genetic Proponents-Genetic Etiology

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.

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”).

“Cells are continuously dying in our body due to infections, cell turnover, developmental processes, and other extrinsic stress…”: In these chromosomes…most present in neurodiversity; we are needing to examine cell health (avoid cytotoxicity) such as:

A multidisciplinary team at the University of Illinois  Urbana-Champaign has devised a new approach to 3D imaging that captures  DNA methylation, a key epigenetic change associated with learning in the  brain.

Three Potential Mechanisms of Transcranial Photobiomodulation (tPBM):

First, by direct stimulation, where photobiomodulation is applied directly on the distressed neurons themselves, activates mitochondrial function that then increases both adenosine triphosphate energy and the expression of stimulatory and/or protective genes.

Second, by indirect stimulation, where photobiomodulation triggers recruitment of a “middle man”, such as cells of the immune and/or stem cell systems. These activated cells may swarm to the region of distressed neurons and helps them survive and function, by potentially increasing the expression of anti-inflammatory cytokines while decreasing the pro-inflammatory ones.

Third, rather than acting on the distressed neurons through either a direct or indirect stimulation as described above, photobiomodulation may act on other brain regions, for example motor cortex, that then stimulate the neural networks that underpin the behavioural improvements.

A very important study shows acute stress as a result of childhood maltreatment to accelerated early maturation of the immune system. Acute  psychosocial stress states stimulate the secretion of an antibody type  protein that is decisive in the first immune defense against infection,  but only after puberty. However, children with a history of maltreatment  present a similar response to that of adolescents, which suggests there  is an early maturation of the immune system in these cases.

It has been identified as a ligand for  the class I human leukocyte antigen (HLA-I) in thymus. Studies of the orthologous mouse protein suggest that it may also play a role in  spermatid differentiation, as well as in neuronal morphogenesis [a class of large neurons present in the peripheral nervous system below] and synaptic plasticity. 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.

 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.

Bones provide both skeletal scaffolding and space for hematopoiesis in  its marrow. Previous work has shown that these functions were tightly  regulated by the nervous system. The central and peripheral nervous  systems tightly regulate compact bone remodeling, its metabolism, and  hematopoietic homeostasis in the bone marrow (BM). Accumulating evidence  indicates that the nervous system, which fine-tunes inflammatory  responses and alterations in neural functions, may regulate autoimmune  diseases. Neural signals also influence the progression of hematological  malignancies such as acute and chronic myeloid leukemias. Here, we  review the interplay of the nervous system with bone, BM, and immunity,  and discuss future challenges to target hematological diseases through  modulation of activity of the nervous system.

Hyponatremia is not only the most common electrolyte disorder but is also associated with higher infection rate [1], cardiovascular disease [2, 3], and mortality risk [4, 5]. Central nervous system (CNS) symptoms are the main manifestations of hyponatremia [6]. Think about how  dementia cause an electrolyte imbalance? Residents who have very advanced dementia may also develop electrolyte  imbalance because their brain no longer reminds their body to drink or  accept fluids when offered to them. How is an electrolyte imbalance diagnosed? Electrolyte imbalance is usually diagnosed by blood tests. Does level(s) affect dementia? Several studies reported that chronic hyponatremia resulted in mild cognition impairment (MCI) [7, 8], which in turn was associated with increased risk of progression to dementia [9] or death [10].

Conjugated linoleic fatty acid (CLA) helps body composition, help reduce body fat deposits,  cardio-metabolic risk factors, improve immune function, and energetic metabolism          

Read more: Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a type of fat. Dairy and beef are major sources of CLA in the diet. Most CLA supplements are made from safflower oil. CLA might help reduce body fat deposits and improve immune function. The average diet supplies 15-174 mg of CLA daily.  It is a naturally occurring  ingredient that can safely be used for numerous health-promoting  benefits. 05/09/08 CLA, the natural weight loss supplement, was recently approved by the FDA as a food product and regarded as safe for use in foods. If you were wondering how much CLA to take for weight loss, most healthy adults take a dosage of 3 to 6 mg  of CLA daily. However, adults over 155 pounds should take a minimum of  3.5 mg of CLA. Anywhere between 3,000-6,000 milligrams is ideal for individuals at a healthy weight. Those who weigh over 155 pounds should take at least 3,500 mg (3.5 g) to get the full effect of CLA. https://www.rxlist.com/conjugated_linoleic_acid/supplements.htm. People commonly take CLA by mouth for weight loss. It is also often used for bodybuilding and fitness, but there is limited scientific evidence to support these uses. Furthermore, CLA supplementation may modulate the immune function, help  re-synthetize of glycogen and potentiate the bone mineralization.

CLA  supplementation also could increase the lipolysis and reduce the  accumulation of fatty acids on the adipose tissue; the putative  mechanisms involved may be its action in reducing the lipase lipoprotein  activity and to increase the carnitine-palmitoil-transferase-1 (CAT-1)  activity, its interaction with PPARγ, and to raise the expression of  UCP-1..Similarly, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is being sold as a panacea that has the  capability of reducing or eliminating cancer, preventing heart disease,  improving immune function, and altering body composition to treat  obesity or build lean body mass. Unfortunately, there has been very  little published human research on CLA. This review will examine the  literature on CLA and discuss the animal research on which the above  claims are made. The limited human studies will be presented with an  evaluation of the potential uses of CLA for human health and disease.

The emotions of anger/shame or hatred/grief or deceit/guilt are energies (synergies discussed more in NTN Part II) that affect everyone differently, and in some ways the same.

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 attitudes. Then, think about environments, the senses, and seeking out patterns first (see Nurture section below).

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.

Speaking of the “whole child”- the vagus nerve connects the brain stem to the body. 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.]

What I mean by Cellular memory? It’s what we know about PSTD  where the cellular landscape of proteins–a dynamic that captures significant features of an event, in part by synthesis of new proteins. Ask yourself what is “let go” and kept in out memory for means of safety (what or why)? Also, what is synthesized and deemed safe or unsafe?

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.

Engagement is Heterarchical

 Researchers have identified gene expression signatures common to  sensory processing that facilitates the brain’s interpretation of  sensory input. Sight,  touch and hearing are our windows to the world: these sensory channels  send a constant flow of information to the brain, which acts to sort out  and integrate these signals, allowing us to perceive the world and  interact with our environment. But how do these sensory pathways emerge  during development? Do they share a common structure, or, on the  contrary, do they emerge independently, each with its specific features?

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

ALL Upon Faith In Hope- SHEWBREAD-  shō  : “Show” (so always the American Standard Revised Version) is simply a  modernized spelling of “shew” (so always in the King James Version and  generally in the English Revised Version), and it should be carefully  noted that “shew” is never pronounced “shoo,” not even in the  combination “shewbread”; Compare “sew.” In the King James Version “shew” as a verb is the translation of a very  large number of terms in the original. This number is reduced  considerably by the Revised Version (British and American) (especially  in the New Testament), but most of these changes are to secure  uniformity of rendition, rather than to correct obscurities. The proper  sense of the verb, of course, is “to cause a person to see” (Genesis  12:1 , etc.) or “to cause a thing (or “person”) to be seen” (Deuteronomy  4:35; Judges 4:22 , etc.).

 παραδειγματίζω  (Strong’s #3856 — Verb — paradeigmatizo — par-ad-igue-mat-id’-zo ) shame  signifies “to set forth as an example” (para, “beside,” deiknumi, “to  show”), and is used in Hebrews 6:6 of those Jews, who, though attracted  to, and closely associated with, the Christian faith, without having  experienced more than a tasting of the heavenly gift and partaking of  the Holy Ghost (not actually receiving Him), were tempted to apostatize  to Judaism, and, thereby crucifying the Son of God a second time, would  “put Him to an open shame.” So were criminals exposed. In the Sept.,  Numbers 25:4; Jeremiah 13:22; Ezekiel 28:17.

Recognition is Heterarchical: The “New Man”- Perceives as God Does (Living Faith- Seeing, Hearing & Understanding By Faith)

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.

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.

Total Learning System Dysfunction (TLSD)

Literacy (reading, writing, speaking) can lead someone to experiencing disparagement and intense emotions. These emotions [anger and shame] 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 a calm delight  with 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’. Please Note: All motivation is in the higher forms of empathy, autonomy, and authenticity. (Retrieved from https://positivepsychology.com/dabrowskis-positive-disintegration/].

What is emotional intensity and how related to Darbowski’s Overexcitabtlites:

Learning with trauma includes Emotional Intensity”- Includes…Cognitive, Social/Emotional, Mental, Physical & Spiritual:  Dabrowski identified five areas of intensity-Psychomotor, Sensual, Intellectual, Imagination, and Emotional. How do you know if you have overexcitabilities? When  stressed, children with psychomotor overexcitabilities may talk over  anyone and everyone, act impulsively, misbehave in ways that are  seemingly incongruent with their age, display nervous habits like tics,  and may even act compulsively – organizing things or arguing about  perceived inconsistencies.  [Retrieved from https://raisinglifelonglearners.com/psychomotor-overexcitabilities/;https://www.sengifted.org/post/overexcitability-and-the-gifted].

  • A lot of people with emotional intensity have experienced problems during their childhood.
  • a combination of life events, psychological experiences and effects, and genetic factors.
  • It is characterized by heightened and intense feelings, a constant stream of both positive and negative feelings – Anger, Shame, pain, distress, despair, fear, excitement, love, sadness or happiness.
  • sometimes a mixture of many  Emotions at the same time.

When neurotoxicity (tau- toxic protein clumps develop in Hippocampus or other areas) happens at an early age, the brain will sometimes compensate. This natural compensation means early development in other parts of the brain.  -Tricia Cook

The “gray matter” of the brain is densely packed with nerve cell bodies  and is responsible for the brain’s higher functions, such as thinking,  computing, and decision-making.  But gray matter is only half of the brain matter inside our heads — the  other half of brain volume is called . It has long been  established that stress-related illnesses, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)   trigger changes in brain structure, including differences in the  volume  of gray matter versus white matter, as well as the size and   connectivity of the amygdala. However, researchers are just beginning to  understand exactly how chronic stress creates long-lasting changes in   brain structure, which affect how the brain functions. “We studied only  one part of the brain, the hippocampus, but our  findings could provide  insight into how white matter is changing in  conditions such as schizophrenia, autism, depression, suicide, ADHD, and PTSD,” Kaufer said. The hippocampus regulates memory  and emotions, plays a role in various emotional disorders, and has been  known to shrink under extended periods of acute stress.” [Retrieved  from https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/the-athletes-way/201402/chronic-stress-can-damage-brain-structure-and-connectivity]

Many neuroscientists suspect that variations in white matter may  underlie differences in reading ability, and hope that by determining  which white matter tracts are involved, they will be able to guide the  development of more effective interventions for children who struggle with reading skills. Findings: When we read, information zips between language processing  centers in different parts of the brain, traveling along neural highways  in the white matter. This coordinated activity allows us to decipher  words and comprehend their meaning.

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 ” ” is an eon- a miniature particle-spherical body made up of God’s Image (That can multiply, grow, expand- as in constant connection and flow through Christ, by means of coming-into the ARAS-THYMUS, & PONS, RAS/GUT, -God’s conscious (nous)). It’s the ultimate “energy” center that create an authority of the self-body seeking out love, peace, and justice. It makes up our EM field- and determines or desires and higher purpose as it’s “the soul” in commune with one’s spirit. 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. 

So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.  Genesis 1:27 AMP  

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 (TFD) 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.

The Mind: Perceiving with Interpersonal  Victimhood Outside of Conscious Awareness

The research was published…Personality and Individual Differences (think about autonomy):

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 [such as disparagement]. 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 [sympathetic-anger] of stress even before being given instructions.25

                                    SEVEN IMPACTS OF DYSLEXIA CAUSING INTENSE EMOTIONS

Here’s let’s think about the impacts of dyslexia and the disparagement all creating anger/shame especially in school:

First:

Difficulty understanding any concept without starting with the “whole picture”. The dyslexic learner thinks and understands the world in whole concrete images. If the whole concrete image has not been presented first and is available when the student is starting to learn the parts, the parts will not make any sense and the brain will discard them. The dyslexic needs to start with and see whole images and whole concepts, not the separated parts.

Second:

Difficulty with understanding the parts separate from the whole image of the word. If these students cannot see the parts within the whole and the whole image at the same time, they cannot make sense out of pieces or parts of information.

For example, demonstrating fractions. Use two oranges, keep one whole, cut the other up first into halves then into quarters, but always have the visual image of the whole orange present. The student must understand that the word fraction stands for the equal parts you have created from the whole.

Third:

Difficulty with the skills of hand printing, spelling, reading, and composing sentences correctly. This usually means that the dyslexic brain cannot transfer its concrete images adequately, which works with abstracts and uses the language of words and numbers.

Fourth:

The dyslexic thinker cannot learn, analyze, or work with what they do not understand or can process. This is a strong indication that although the students are taking in information and attempting to store it in whole concrete images, they are not using it for thinking or learning that requires abstract processing. Instead, they are memorizing the image of the information and giving it back verbatim in their answers. Basically, difficulty with understanding the parts separate from the whole image of the word.

Fifth:

The dyslexic learner does not always understand the abstract words, thoughts, and ideas they hear or read as they cannot easily turn them   into whole concrete images they can visualize. Words must be memorized beforehand, so the brain does not have to lose time during reading figuring out how the word is decoded, what it sounds like or means. If the student spends too much time in decoding and recognizing the individual words, comprehension of the story is lost.

Sixth:

The student is forced to reread the passage over and over to understand what they have just read. Their short-term memory can consequently dump the information when the dyslexic has struggled too long to decode the words and find context in what they are reading. Therefore, the student will not be able to answer any questions about their reading assignment because the student has not processed the information correctly or stored it in long-term memory.

Seventh:

Difficulty in following instructions. Dyslexic students need very specific and complete instructions on how to do an assignment, project, test or complete a lesson. Again, this is about the necessity to see the whole picture.

They need to understand how the assignment starts and ends. They need to know: where to put their name, date and title; what kind of paper to use; pen, pencil, or computer; the date to hand it in; how the answers should look (for example: one word answers, a paragraph or a page); and any other issues that may be of concern for the student. Once the student has all the information they require they have the “whole picture” of what to do and can now see the parts so they are ready to start the assignment.

Also, the entire lesson or explanation must be given at one time on the same day. If this does not happen, the students will forget everything they should have learned to be able to work on and complete the assignment. Dyslexic students should always be allowed and encouraged to ask questions to fill in any gaps they have in understanding what they are required to do.

With Disparagement Some  Can Start to Disassociate, Increase Shame, AND/OR Become INATTENTIVE to What They Are Reading

Researchers investigate why we “space out” and stop paying attention  to the world around us when we become engrossed in social media posts. Sometimes  when we are reading a good book, it’s like we are transported into  another world and we stop paying attention to what’s around us. Researchers  at the University of Washington wondered if people enter a similar  state of dissociation when surfing social media, and if that explains  why users might feel out of control after spending so much time on their  favorite app. [Retrieved from https://neurosciencenews.com/dissociative-state-social-media-20640/].

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 [fight, fight]” (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.

Over time, I observed those who experience disparagement- go from anger in nature, to hatred and resentment. Similarly, those with shame nature- go from regressive anger to shame, grief, and guilt,  “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. ‘ Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God. [Ps. 110:1.]’  Hebrews 12:2

In this particular ancient tradition, anger [and shame], 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 leading “into Darkness”-then Spirit)

When a child with neurodifferences is learning something new or  stressful, if mindset is perceived with anger (SFD-sympathetic functional dominance), 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-parasympathetic functional dominance), 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:

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.

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.

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/]

“The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.” Timothy 1:5 https://www.bible.com/en-GB/bible/111/1TI.1.5.NIV

Exaggerated or Hyperbolical Expression for Three Levine: Justifying, Indwelling and Saving All Things BY His LOVE & Your Faith

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 scripturaly.

What relationship do we have with Jesus?Jesus calls us “friend” in the Bible (John 15:15). A relationship with Him is a relationship of intimacy and security, of being totally known and totally accepted.  It is not a relationship of equals, however. Jesus is fully God as well  as fully man, and as such He remains Lord of heaven and Earth. [Retreieved from https://polishednetwork.org/blog/what-does-it-mean-to-have-a-relationship-with-jesus].

8 – 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!!

Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible  event: accident, rape, or [learning with trauma]. Immediately after the  event, shock, and denial are typical. Longer term reactions include  unpredictable emotions, flashbacks, strained relationships, and even  physical symptoms like headaches or nausea. A new study in Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging  has used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to examine the  effects of acute stress and “polyvictimization,” or repeated traumas, on  three brain networks in adolescents. Findings: Stress and trauma during adolescence can lead to long-term  health consequences such as psychiatric disorders, which may arise from  neurodevelopmental effects on brain circuitry. [Retrieved from https://neurosciencenews.com/stress-teen-brain-20563/]

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 behavior 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 (hyperarousal) and shame appears sadly depressed (hypoarousal) and both being varied arousal. 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; all very much causing chaos in the mind.

What is the butterfly effect in simple terms? A property of chaotic systems  (such as the learning atmosphere & the mind) by which small changes in initial conditions  can lead to large-scale and unpredictable variation in the future state  of the system. The field of study of chaos has its roots in differential equations and dynamical systems, the very language that is used to describe how any physical system evolves in the real world. The story of chaos is step by step, from simple non-chaotic systems, to different types of attractors, to fractal spaces and the language of unpredictability.  The deterministic nature of these systems does not make them predictable.[8][9] This behavior is known as deterministic chaos, or simply chaos.  In these cases, while it is often the most practically significant  property, “sensitivity to initial conditions” need not be stated in the  definition. The theory was summarized by Edward Lorenz as:[10] [Retrieved from https://interestingengineering.com/what-exactly-is-the-butterfly-effect; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaos_theory].

Note: The nuerodivergent thinking is not real linear-considered non-linear as well not being 1-3D but somewhere between. Note: Through equanimity (delight calm) it can become linear, but not in the sense most are used to. The neurodivergent are completely different paths and none being the same. So ask yourself, having choas in the mind a good or bad thing even though the body, mind, spirit may suffer for the neurodiverse? Is suffering good or bad?  How many have a neurodiveregncy?

Vagus Nerve and Vibrating the Soma (HPA-anger) and Alta Major Chakra (ACC-shame)

“Exogenous prenatal  risks are evident (e.g. valproate and toxic  chemicals) or possible  (e.g. selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors),  and processes  endogenous to the materno-foeto-placental unit (e.g.  maternal diabetes,  enhanced steroidogenic activities and maternal immune activation) likely heighten offspring vulnerability to ASC.” [Retrieved from https://acamh.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/jcpp.12501].

The steroidogenic pathways involve the synthesis of steroid hormones from cholesterol, known as steroidogenesis.  The biosynthesis of steroid hormones in the adrenals, ovaries, testes,  placenta, brain, and skin are regulated by tropic hormones and other signaling pathways. [Retrieved from https://fullscript.com/blog/steroidogenic-pathways-overview] SEE  image below…Note: The thymus in turn appears to have some effect on adrenal function inas-  much as thymectomy leads to enlargement of the adrenals  The thymus is located in  the upper part of the chest and produces white blood cells that fight  infections and destroy abnormal cells. Adrenal gland. An  adrenal gland is located on top of each kidney. Like many glands, the  adrenal glands work hand-in-hand with the hypothalamus and pituitary  gland and the augmentation of thymic products (by injections of thymus extracts) causes a  partial adrenal atrophy.

See THYMUS (high heart): drenal glands, also known as suprarenal glands, are small, triangular-shaped glands located on top of both kidneys. Adrenal glands produce hormones that help regulate your metabolism, immune system, blood pressure, response to stress and other essential functions. [see Thymus above…Retrieved from HERE].

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.

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-THYMUS, & PONS, RAS/GUT,- 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

NOTE:

For Language, in the human brain, processes speech sounds and interconnects auditory  cortex with frontal lobe regions important for language. Although only  humans have speech and language, the link via the auditory pathway in  other primates suggests an evolutionary basis in auditory cognition and  vocal communication. According to findings, the different parts of the inferior parietal lobe (IPL)  specialize  in different cognitive functions – such as attention, language, and  social cognition, with the latter reflecting the ability for perspective  taking. Inferior Parietal Lobe The inferior parietal lobe is a posterior region of the brain that is most well-known for its role in visuospatial processing.

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].

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.

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].

Mind You Again: The Mind & Identify “Why” the Emotions doing  PYAM (Prayer, Yoga, Affirmations & Mediations)

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!

 δίδωμι  (Strong’s #1325 — Verb — didomi — did’-o-mee ) “to give,” is rendered “bestow” in 1 John 3:1 , the implied idea being  that of giving freely. The AV has it in 2 Corinthians 8:1; the RV  adheres to the lit. rendering, “the grace of God which hath been given  in the churches of Macedonia.” See ADVENTURE and especially GIVE.

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 by  doing PYAM (Prayer, Yoga, Affirmations & Mediations)…

  • 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 of  Peace, Authority, Absolute is a mature spirit of Eternal Life bring Rejoice, Harmony, & Thanksgiving

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.

(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.

(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.

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. [2]  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. The ascending projections of the reticular activating system  enhance the attentive state of the cortex and facilitate conscious  perception of sensory stimuli.

The GUT- The SECOND Brain & Solar Plexus

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).  [Retrieved from https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpsyt.2018.00223/full].

  • 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. [Retrieved from https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpsyt.2018.00669/full].

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 level of dopamine in the brain may have an impact on  emotional recognition in those with Parkinson’s disease and  schizophrenia, a new study reports. Emotion  recognition among people with disorders such as Parkinson’s disease or  schizophrenia may be affected by changes in the levels of dopamine in  the brain, say researchers at the University of Birmingham. Dopamine  is a chemical messenger – often known as the ‘happy hormone’ – that  carries signals controlling mental and emotional responses in the brain. Parkinson’s  disease and other neurological disorders are known for their links with  low or disrupted dopamine levels that cause those affected to struggle  with a number of social skills. This is the first time, however, that a  positive connection has been made between dopamine and the ability to  recognize emotions in others.

Linguists are interested in language for its own sake, as a complex  product of the human mind. They are also interested in how language  develops in children, how it changes over time, and how it is used in  human society. Furthermore, Neuroscientist Suzana Herculano-Houzel has pointed out that our brains are different because of the number of neurons packed into our skulls — it’s less about the size of our brains. The density of that packing, and the ensuing neuronal connections this density allows for, gives rise to our ability to acquire language from birth and use it till death. She assumes that the main function of the brain is   to regulate our bodies as we move through life. That means that at   every given moment, our brains assess our hunger, threat levels, etc. to   figure out how much energy we need to get through the day. Thinking  and  cognitive perception are secondary products of how our brain  responds  predicatively to our environment. If the grammatical system is a resource that the brain uses depending on  context, then our emotions and identity can also affect how we use  grammar. This is precisely what we have found.

In the human it is located in parts of the cuneus, the lingual gyrus and the middle occipital gyrus of the occipital lobe. Brodmann area 22 is cytoarchitecturally located in the posterior superior temporal gyrus of the brain. In the left cerebral hemisphere, it is one portion of Wernicke’s area. The prefrontal cortex contains Brodmann areas  is thought to be involved in psychological functions such as executive  tasks, attention, and memory. This Research Topic, since they are the most rostral, and might be  involved in more elementary computations as compared to, say, BA46,  which is clearly involved in working memory. Also, Brodmann area 10 (BA10, frontopolar prefrontal cortex, rostrolateral prefrontal cortex, or anterior prefrontal cortex, the  area is “described as “one of the least well-understood regions of the human brain”.[2] Ronel (2018) conducted a similar analysis for ADHD, in terms of 4 types  of selection/inhibition (lateral BA 8 – motor selection/inhibition;  lateral BA 9 – emotion selection/inhibition; lateral BA 10 – memory  selection/inhibition; lateral BA 11 – sensory selection/inhibition). Present research suggests that it is involved in strategic processes in memory recall and various executive functions. During  human evolution, the functions in this area resulted in its expansion relative to the rest of the brain.[3]” [Retrieved from https://www.kenhub.com/en/library/anatomy/brodmann-areashttps://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fnbeh.2013.00198/full]

 ‘T  cells are critical to the adaptive immune system’: Stopping Inflamation and Even Damage

The collaboration between Professor Adrian Liston (Babraham Institute)  and Professor Matthew Holt (VIB and KU Leuven; i3S-University of Porto)  has produced a targeted delivery system for boosting the numbers of  specialized anti-inflammatory immune cells specifically within the brain  to restrict brain inflammation and damage. The research team found that regulatory T cell numbers were low in  the brain because of a limited supply of the crucial survival molecule  interleukin 2, also known as IL2. Levels of IL2 are low in the brain  compared to the rest of the body as it can’t pass the blood-brain  barrier. Together the team devised a new therapeutic approach that  allows more IL2 to be made by brain cells, thereby creating the  conditions needed by regulatory T cells to survive. A ‘gene delivery’  system based on an engineered adeno-associated viral vector (AAV) was  used: this system can actually cross an intact blood brain barrier and  deliver the DNA needed for the brain to produce more IL2 production.

Thymus (12th chakra and all chakras, high heart & mind, inward man)-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 (also see RAS-GUT), 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. [2] 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. [4] 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.[1] The HLA system is also known as the human version of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC)  found in many animals.[2] More importanmtly, the “soul that is the seat of the mind”.  [Retrieved from https://www.hindawi.com/journals/jtrans/2012/842141/; https://www.unseenwarfare.net/3-powers-of-the-soul; https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/scisignal.abc8579; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thymus].

The Thymus and High Heart & Gut Relation

See Kidneys here: The Spirit body of the Monad is only consciously aware of the contents of the Soul  when it is connected to the Soul. This is the same as when the physical  body is disconnected from the Soul, the conscious mind does not  remember her (cannot feel the soul). When our Heart is healed, there is a fire that is ignited inside the  Heart that is accessed, and the fire in the Heart is also in the  Kidneys. There is a triangle that connects the Heart into the Kidneys.  The Kidneys are in the base of the triangle from left to right and the  point of the triangle is in the Heart. When the Heart is healed, there  is a twin flame ignition in our Heart and Kidneys, which shifts the  Heart configuration. Twin flames equals structure of light within the  Heart. So two flames ignite in the Heart. The Monad  is the greater flame and the physical body is the lesser flame. When  this dual flame is ignited, there is an ignition in the Heart and a fire  coming into the Kidneys, which is about blood cleansing.

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.

As well, sympathetic [Anger] innervation of the thymus originates from the superior  cervical and stellate ganglion. These fibers travel in a plexus along  large blood vessels until they enter the thymic capsule. Parasympathetic  fibers  [Shame]  arise from the vagus, recurrent laryngeal, and phrenic nerves.  Several rodent studies have found that thymocytes respond to stimuli via  norepinephrine, dopamine, acetylcholine, neuropeptide Y, vasoactive  intestinal peptide, calcitonin gene-related peptide, and substance P.[2][6][2] [Retrieved from https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK539748/].

Research on the molecular and cellular basis of learning and memory has  focused on the mechanisms that underlie the induction and expression of  synaptic plasticity. There is increasing evidence that structural  changes at the synapse are associated with synaptic plasticity and that  extracellular matrix (ECM) components and cell adhesion molecules are  associated with these changes (Retrieved from HERE).

The Thymus aka Leb, Lebab Cont.

The leb is “:The Veil”, of the five senses, also what enters the body, and absolutely essential for physical life and  health, so too a healthy spiritual heart (mind (intellect), emotion (imagination), will (“ego”-good/love & bad/fear)) is at the center of one’s inner being (soul)  is vital for a healthy  soul, serving as the “fountain” of all moral attitudes and actions. The invisible realm of the spirit is as real as the visible world. In  fact, the Scripture tells us that it is even more real (Hebrews 11:3).  And just as God gave us five natural senses to interact with the  physical world, He gave us five spiritual senses to connect with the  supernatural world. The Leb- high heart, mind and “the gut” which is the bodily organ by means of which the raw data of experience is shaped into thoughts, concepts, or judgments. https://www.preceptaustin.org/heart_leb?fbclid=IwAR3sxBfseZ2LTzssTfOghYI_kfM-mtglVqyEqG3W7xAPJIQt3uODG9GjNdk

The puritan, John Flavel said, it’s light of the understanding, recognitions of the memory, seat of principles and the fountain of actions. John MacArthur – The “heart” commonly refers to the mind as the center of thinking and reason (Pr 3:36:21;7:3), but also includes the emotions (Pr 15:1530), the will (Pr 11:2014:14), and thus, the whole inner being (Pr 3:5). The leb aka heart and mind carries along several other organs of the body (cf. ear and eyes already in Pr 4:2021) mentioned frequently in wisdom instruction: mouth, lips, and eyes (parallel to “eyelids” or “orbs” in Pr 4:25), mouth, lips, and even the foot and hand. The heart is the depository of all wisdom and the source of whatever affects speech (Pr 4:24), sight (Pr 4:25), and conduct (Pr 4:2627).

PTSD- Many advances in science have been made in the last decade to better  explain the pathogenesis of PTSD. Advances in the brain imaging method  have allowed us to study changes in patients’ brains in a non-invasive  way. Recent studies have observed the activity or morphology changes of  several brain regions in patients with PTSD, including the prefrontal  lobe, amygdala, hippocampus. 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 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.

“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.” 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.

Emotionally overexcitable (OE) is often the first to be noticed by parents. It is reflected in heightened, intense feelings, extremes of complex emotions, identification with others’ feelings, and strong affective expression (Piechowski, 1991). Other manifestations include physical responses like stomachaches and blushing or concern with death and depression (Piechowski, 1979).  Emotionally overexcitable people have a remarkable capacity for deep relationships; they show strong emotional attachments to people, places, and things (Dabrowski & Piechowski, 1977). They have compassion, empathy, and sensitivity in relation-ships. Those with strong Emotional OE are acutely aware of their own feelings, of how they are growing and changing, and often carry on inner dialogs and practice self-judgment (Piechowski, 1979, 1991). Children high in Emotional OE‚ are often accused of “overreacting.” Their compassion and concern for others, their focus on relationships, and the intensity of their feelings may interfere with everyday tasks like homework or doing the dishes.

I can also tell you that they may excel at thinking of “outside the box” solutions, seeing a problem from many sides, and patterns/spatial relationships along with the ability to think in 3 dimensions-using their strong evaluation skills and imagination (capable of observing patterns of: color, shape, size, dimension, rhythm, meter, tone, and chant). They have an innate ability for caring for people, animals and nature [Note: sometimes due to circumstances they go against their own nature in this respect]. Lastly, I prepare students with unique learning and neurodifferences to connect to the world with enrichment classes through my program MY ELBERT.  [Retrieved from https://myelberteveryonelearnsbetterembracingrevolutionaryteaching.com/author/tcookedu/].

Two Types Of Literacy Intervention Learners, I Observed That Go Most Unrecognized In Their Gifts:

  • The Students with the “Engineering Mind”: a student who spends hours taking things apart and putting them back together, creating things, assembling and un-assembling ex. legos, blocks. They are setting things apart to see how they can fix them, problem-solution thinkers (descibed above). They are are natural engineers. It is inherent in their curious nature. As they grow, almost instinctively they show great interest in shapes (using evaluation kills descibed above) and numbers. They tend to be shy and seems to have a different cognitive processing speed: https://www.edsurge.com/news/2022-04-05-students-have-different-thinking-speeds-inclusive-teaching-means-realizing-that.
  • The Students with the “Technical Mind”: is what I describe as a “technical thinker” (similar to the “engineering minded” with divergent abilities). They can or tend to understand/provide complex information to readers/listeners in a way that they can understand and apply, even if they don’t have prior knowledge of the topic; Yet, they are truly interest-based learners at the same time. “Technical thinkers” can explain, especially verbally with a rather large lexicon knowledge, how a particular subject works or how and what’s needed to complete a task or project including: list-form, divergent, systematic thinking and somewhat linear-so they can express the topic that can be structured in the following step-by-step instructions. Note: sometimes needed to be given the “right tools for analysis” in order to express/communicate to others. This is my job! Note: I have noticed both of these types are “doers” and need autonomy (avoid disparagement); They need to be independently doing something to learn and apply their divergent reasoning (opposite of typical scientific method observing (first), then hypothesis.theory and test by moving, touching, following interest, writing something technical, application of skills, etc..). They, as well, can have a learning difference (neurodiversity). They are also “strong willed” and know technically what they have “in mind” to work on, so please let them be autonomous and independent in their work. They may have a strong purpose in their special interest that could change problems to the world!! As well, a possibly sensory processing sensitivity (SPS, as measured by the highly sensitive self-test), which corresponds most closely in theory to what we refer to as “hypersensitivity” or “high sensitivity”–check out sensitivity as a personality trait bearing the following characteristics
  • :greater depth of information processing (see learning types below)
  •  heightened emotional reactivity and empathy (emotional intensity)
  • increased awareness of subtle changes in one’s environment (divergent thinking/reasoning)
  •  greater propensity for overstimulation (see overexcitabilies)
  • Read here …See My work HERE.  Lastly, I observe these gifts, learning types mostly in my Gifted and Talented and/or Twice Exceptional with overexcitabilies!! Does this describe your child? Ask me about “The Steve Jobs” type (strong see overexcitabilies and early dev. in logical-mathemtaical thinking); “The Tom Cruise” type (strong see overexcitabilies and early dev. in emotions/drama); “The Richard Branson” type (strong see overexcitabilies and early dev. in entrepreneurship/creativity); “Einstein” type (strong see all overexcitabilies and early dev. in science specially physics) along with more excentricities:

Speaking of emotional intensity, maybe you are seeing symptoms manifesting in your child or student already.  Your, once, delightful child/student has suddenly increased complaints of:

•   Disorganization

•   Stomach Aches

•   Hives

•   Lack of Focus

•   Shortened Attention Spans

•   Destroying Their Pencils

•   Sleep or Digestive Problems

Manifesting in:

•   Depression

•   Memory Problems

•   Cries Easily

•   Anger

•   Sadness

•   Shame,

•   Problems With Authority…etc.

It’s frustrating.  It’s humiliating.  It’s exhausting.  And sometimes it feels like no matter how much time you spend reassuring yourself and your child or student they seem to be falling further and further behind.

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.

REJECTION- Righteous  (Purpose, Pure Heart Only IN GOD)

Righteous by His Mercy for: Paul spoke about Faith; He discourses on righteouness, self-control, and the judgemement to come. (Acts 24:24-25)

Righteous by His Glory for: ‘It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy. For Scripture says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden. ‘  (Romans 9:16-18)

ABANDONMENT- Humble (Blameless “Clean” Mind)

Humbled by His Grace for: Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways (Proverbs 4:26 NIV).

Humbled  by His Victory for: He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 1:8)

AVOID Insensibility: Nurture Their Godly Nature

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 here] 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.

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”.

 : not responsive or susceptible                                                             

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].

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 (Hyper-, Hypo-, Varied). 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.

Focus: The difference between internal and external motivation.  External motivation – the driving force that triggers you in achieving  your goal. Such as: Money.

Internal Motivation comes from God and His Eternal, Absolute and Complete Light- Read More Here.

Solution to DISCONNECT- SOUL IS TO BE GODLY TRAINING- To Him Be The Glory

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 atonement meaning 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.

30 – 3.0 EM and Torsion Field illustration

The Senses Make Up Themselves & Their Corresponding Systems and Functions along with soul -body connections/ SOUL-SPIRIT CONNECTION (read more on Pons- parts of the brain- I describe as heart not mind for that would be the RAS/Gut)

EM Field is our affective-spiritual components which include the following: a healthy  and functional physiological, sensory-motor systems meaning our  exteroception and interoception (“our senses”) including our sensory  system (especially visual and auditory) along with central and  peripheral nervous systems- which is regulated by RAS & ACC/HPA,  Pons (parts of the brain- I describe as heart not mind for that would be the RAS/Gut), thymus and biofield (including  electromagnetic field, internal chakras). 

Here is Pink’s summary of what it means to keep the heart. The reader  is advised to read the extended discussion that goes with each point  by clicking here. https://www.preceptaustin.org/heart_leb?fbclid=IwAR3sxBfseZ2LTzssTfOghYI_kfM-mtglVqyEqG3W7xAPJIQt3uODG9GjNdk

1. To “keep” the heart means striving to shut out from it all that is opposed to God…

2. To “keep” the heart means striving to bring it into conformity with the Word…

3. To “keep” the heart means to preserve it tender unto sin…

4. To “keep” the heart means to look diligently after its cleansing.

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.”  https://www.bible.com/en-GB/bible/111/GEN.2.9.NIV

Wisdom from the Holy Spirit-  thus, the whole inner being (Pr 3:5). The “leb” aka heart and mind carries along several other organs of the body (cf. ear and eyes already in Pr 4:2021) mentioned frequently in wisdom instruction: mouth, lips, and eyes (parallel to “eyelids” or “orbs” in Pr 4:25) and bring righteousness, humility, and discernment as a fruit of the Spirit:

See The 7  (Spheres of Salvation) “Orbs” of Light and “Humanities Discernment”: Truly I tell you, Love Jesus by Tricia Cook

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  . . .

Justice attains its inner fullness only in love. Because every person is truly a visible image of the invisible God and a sibling of Christ, the Christian finds the “perfection” aka become “The perfect.

Divine Unity/Absolute Holiness aka “The Arc of the Covenant” and “The Blood

Charity is held to be the ultimate perfection of the human spirit,  because it is said to both glorify and reflect the nature of God.  Confusion can arise from the multiple meanings of the English word  “love”. As other theological virtues, Charity is divinely infused into  the soul; it resides in the will.

We are saved by faith in Christ, plus nothing. Faith that saves will be accompanied by good deeds (James 2:17).

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.

Prayers Two Types Related To Iniquity (Generational Anger & Shame) HERE

FERVENT PRAYER (Fervent,  Fervently)  A — 1: ἐκτενής  (Strong’s #1618 — Adjective — ektenes — ek-ten-ace’ ) denotes “strained, stretched” (ek, “out,” teino, “to stretch”); hence,  metaphorically, “fervent,” 1 Peter 4:8 . Some mss. have it in Acts 12:5 ,  for the adverb (see B). Cp. ekteneia (with en), “intently,  strenuously,” in Acts 26:7 , AV, “instantly,” RV, “earnestly.” Cp.  EARNEST.  B — 1: ἐκτενῶς  (Strong’s #1619 — Adverb — ektenos — ek-ten-oce’ ) “fervently” (akin to A), is said of love, in 1 Peter 1:22; of prayer, in  some mss. Acts 12:5 (see under A); for the comparative degree in Luke  22:44 , see EARNESTLY.  C — 1: ζέω  (Strong’s #2204 — Verb — zeo — dzeh’-o ) “to be hot, to boil” (Eng. “zeal” is akin), is metaphorically used of  “fervency” of spirit, Acts 18:25; Romans 12:11 .  Notes: (1) In Colossians 4:12 , the verb agonizomai, “to strive,” is  translated “laboring fervently,” AV (RV, “striving”). (2) In 2  Corinthians 7:7 , the noun zelos, “zeal” (akin to C.), is translated  “fervent mind,” AV (RV, “zeal”). (3) In James 5:17 , “he prayed  fervently” (AV, “earnestly”) translates the noun proseuche, followed by  the corresponding verb, lit., “he prayed with prayer.” In James 5:16  deesis, “supplication,” is so translated in the RV, for the AV,  “effectual fervent prayer.” There is nothing in the original  corresponding to the word “effectual.” The phrase, including the verb  energeomai, “to work in,” is, lit., “the inworking supplication,”  suggesting a supplication consistent with inward conformity to the mind  of God. (4) For “fervent heat” see HEAT , B. A  — 1: ἐνεργής  (Strong’s #1756 — Adjective — energes — en-er-gace’ ) denotes “active, powerful in action” (en, “in,” ergon, “work;” Eng.  “energy;” the word “work” is derived from the same root). It is  translated “effectual” in 1 Corinthians 16:9 , of the door opened for  the Gospel in Ephesus, and made “effectual” in the results of entering  it; and in Philemon 1:6 , of the fellowship of Philemon’s faith “in the  knowledge of every good thing” (RV). In Hebrews 4:12 it describes the  Word of God as “active,” RV (AV, “powerful”), i.e., full of power to  achieve results. See ACTIVE , POWERFUL. 

EFFECTUAL PRAYER B — 1: ἐνεργέω  (Strong’s #1754 — Verb — energeo — en-erg-eh’-o ) “to put forth power, be operative, to work” (its usual meaning), is  rendered by the verb “to work effectually,” or “to be effectual,” in the  AV of 2 Corinthians 1:6; Galatians 2:8; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; in each  case the RV translates it by the simple verb “to work” (past tense,  “wrought”). In James 5:16 the RV omits the superfluous word “effectual,”  and translates the sentence “the supplication of a righteous man  availeth much in its working,” the verb being in the present participial  form. Here the meaning may be “in its inworking,” i.e., in the effect  produced in the praying man, bringing him into line with the will of  God, as in the case of Elijah. For a fuller treatment of the word, see  WORK. See also DO , MIGHTY , SHEW , Note (11). 

Note: The noun energeia, “working,” is translated “effectual working,”  in the AV of Ephesians 3:7; 4:16 See gnēsiōs- gnay-SEE-ose [Pure Heart] “sincerely, honorably” (akin to A, No. 3), is rendered “truly” (marg., “genuinely”) in Phil, 2:20 (AV, “naturally”).  Read More HERE* see image below The Trinity- US< GOD, UNIVERSE<LOVE= THREE IN ONE Show (sight) & Tells You (hear) IN WORD ABOUT The Future So Pray; Prayer and contemplation

“A large part of the spiritual life consists of observing the inner movements of the mind, guarding the thoughts, and training the mind away  from disturbance in thought to mental.” [Retrieved from https://www.unseenwarfare.net/3-powers-of-the-soul] 

“Therefore,  since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves  from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness  out of reverence for God.”  ‘But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. ‘  I John 2:5 In Luke 17:20–21,  Jesus says, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor  will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of  God is within you” (NKJV). The context of Jesus’ statement is a question  put to Him by His Pharisee detractors, who had asked when the kingdom of  God would come (verse 20). 

Simple Knowledge including Intelligence= Intention. Related to Lower Personal Self: The Gifts

Again, spiritual disconnect happens in (intellectual)- what is right, (moral) what is good, and (imaginative) His Divine Will for us in design and purpose! -Tricia Cook

INTELLECTUAL-Humble Intention means to “stretch” the mind, in the direction or towards “one’s purpose” of “basic Spiritual Needs”- Tricia

God, what’s my (Your) reality? What are my gifts? (physical, emotional rational mind, personal power and will- Ego Center). The gifts are simply “your true nature” including the following:

Description: Heart Heavy- needing “The Fruit”- leads to forgiveness (see forgiveness prayer, also The Beatitudes)

Self-control

Patience

Kindness

Gentleness

Goodness

Faithfulness

Greatness

Love

Do you have good self-control over your emotions?  Holy Spirit can help you take control of this important aspect  of your life. Do your Intentions Reflect Your True Nature?

Description: Heart Achy- need Thanksgiving (Gratitude Journal or SEE Litany, Litany ex Deliverance of Restatement)

Humility

Charity

Authenticity

Gratitude 

Diligence

Candidness

RAS ACC/HPA- Concrete Thought  (conscious develops around age 2)

I: Awareness of Transmutation

Body of Christ- “The Way” (Joy) =Gifts

b. I am Worthy

c. Mercy= forgiveness, justice, knowledge, unconditional Love (releases anger/strength)

b. I am Enough

 c. Grace= freedom, abundance, and devotion (releases shame/empathy)

Sensorimotor stage (conscious develops around age 2)- developing motor control and learning about physical objects (Piaget, 1952).

  • Physical Self (chakras 1–3): anger/strength, joy, bliss, peace, shame/empathy
  • Vestibular & Somatosensory Senses & Proprioception, Tactile Senses= RAS (chakras 6-8, body and brain)
  • 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. 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)

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 over excitation. 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. [Retrieved form https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2021/10/211019223309.htm]. Also, Note:  Studies have demonstrated that iron can regulate tau. This study examines the levels of total tau, hyperphosphorylation of tau, and SDS- and  β-mercaptoethanol-resistant high molecular weight tau (HMW-tau) in crude  extracts from gray and white matters of AD frontal lobes were analyzed by immuno-blots. They found the seeding potency is markedly higher in gray matter than in white matter such disease that includes Alzheimer’s disease (AD), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), and other disease pathologies ..[Retrieved from https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33459649/; https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6108061/].

MORAL Wisdom, Intention for Good including Imagination = greater certainty of purpose, also Related to Lower (central) Personal Self: The Dreams- Tricia

God, what are my (Your) dreams?  (creativity, visionary, aspiration, wisdom- Dream Center). Wisdom is where Revelation turns to Knowledge (glory), Understanding turns to Truth (victory) for the purpose of adoring God.

Please read the research about Abstract Thought and Eye Gazing: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3997200/

PONS Abstract Thought  (spiritual conscious begins develops around age 7, makes a jump at 12)

I: Awareness of Revelation

 Heart of Holy Ghost-“The Truth” (Humble) =Wishes /Dreams

A. Affirmation  Of Power

b. I am Worthy

c. Glory= I have Purity (harmony).

 (releases hatred/courage)

 b. I am Enough

c. Victory= I have Blamelessness (gratitude).

(releases grief/compassion)

Pre-operational stage & Concrete operational stage (spiritual conscious begins develops around age 7, makes a jump at 12)- Developing verbal skills, naming objects and reasoning skills, learn about abstract concepts, numbers, and relationships (Piaget, 1952).

  • Mental Self (chakras 4–6, cognitive brain)
  • Visual, Auditory Senses= Pons (chakras 9-11, body & mind- Note: only total functional dominance)
  • dyslexia, higher functioning autism, oppositional and aggressive behavior

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.

Published by Tricia Cook, MEd., Online Dyslexia and Behavioral Interventionist, RSP, AA O-G Tutor & Montessorian

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.
