Download and read online Deep Blue in PDF and EPUB Why do partners return to dysfunctional relationships forgiving, forgetting and forever repeating the same miserable scenario? Without awareness and mastery of entrancing hypnotic forces, relationships can be severely damaged or even destroyed. The essential premise is that addictive enmeshment is the result of what are experienced as irresistible pulls from hypnotic entrancement. Hypnotic entrancement is fantasy fixation of perfect love leading to eventual demise. Parallels are drawn to hypnotic phenomena. Entrancement involves a coming together or fusion of idealized images superimposed upon physical attributes of the partner. Each partner brings to the relationship ideals or images of their perfect mate. Partners merge their ideal images of love and beauty with the size, shape and contour symmetries of mates. The scope of the book is to guide the reader through the turbulence where the hidden self is revealed as an anchor of sensory motifs. Sensory motifs are inherent, self-organizing structures and characteristics that give partners their sense of uniqueness. Numerous case examples illustrate a four-stage parallel between addictive bonds and hypnosis (e.g.: idealization, disillusionment, obsession and reproachment). Reawakening is described as releasing entrancement through the emergence of innate artistic motifs.

Download and read online Resurrections in PDF and EPUB A Resurrection can be: a defining moment or incident, a restoration of balance, an epiphany, a spiritual awakening, a solution, an escape from distress or simply leaving behind a life of quiet desperation. It might even be realizing that what you have or what you are is pretty good after all. Or it may be as perplexing as trying to understand the dream that helped you to resolve a difficult problem. Resurrections may result from focusing your attention and every conceivable resource to work your way through a troublesome situation. Or, it may be discovering you have insights or abilities beyond your wildest dreams. A resurrection may be like being in the Zone, occasionally teasing you with a glimpse of what is preternaturally possible but remaining elusive and mysterious. Resurrections can be changes, improvements or discoveries. They may include recognizing and understanding the significance of signs, details, nuances, implications and suggestions; occurring when we finally "connect the dots" and solve the riddles. A resurrection can be effectively dealing with adversity, perhaps in a way beyond our immediate comprehension, challenging everything we ́ve learned, believed and thought we knew. People are said to be "wired" differently, and there is every reason to believe that discovering and developing our unique areas of strength and ways of "seeing" may produce what we can now only label as extrasensory perceptions or intuitions. It may be that when we are under duress, our minds can extend their range and perhaps show us what they can really do. It may be exactly like the miraculous physical feats of strength people have been known to perform under extreme conditions. Those who may have experienced very unusual mental insights would naturally be hesitant to say anything, and an otherwise normal individual who discovers atypical abilities would be well advised to keep it to themselves. They should learn to understand and develop them quietly, but certainly not inadvertently dilute, discourage, suppress or exorcise a "gift" because it may be startling, unsettling or it isn ́t explainable in familiar terms and contexts. The following fictitious vignettes are inspired by real experiences and then embellished. Although the stories are very different, they have several common threads. They involve people who don ́t suppress their insights, they actively explore their worlds, and they face conflicts and difficult issues head on. They allow their instincts, intuition, reasoning, curiosity and innate abilities to flourish, empower and help them. You will find adventure, deceit, romance, honest talk, real issues and psychic/supernatural influences in the stories. Each vignette can stand on its own, and the characters ́ lives often intersect and continue as the various stories unfold. Please sit back and enjoy a very different and stimulating intellectual ride. Some of these incidents can stretch the limits of our imaginations. We can ignore them or we can choose to explore their significance and perhaps learn something new. We all try to categorize events in our minds in an orderly fashion, but perhaps we ́re overly constrained by our limited number of words, the few concepts we have to work with, and the unknown manner in which events/actions may actually influence one another. If chance, randomness and chaos are the natural order of things, then all the more reason to take as much control as you can. Why not try and summon and focus any and all possible energies to help organize events you can have control over to help achieve your purposes? Use superstitions, rites, objects, prayers, meditating or whatever, there ́s every reason to try, it may indeed do some good; provided you also supplement those efforts with tangible action. We simply don ́t know what ́s possible if we are able to put our conscious and subconscious efforts to work simultaneously. Scientists and philosophers all seem to agree
Download and read online Adventures in Human Being in PDF and EPUB Sunday Times bestseller We have a lifetime's association with our bodies, but for many of us they remain uncharted territory. In Adventures in Human Being, Gavin Francis leads the reader on a journey through health and illness, offering insights on everything from the ribbed surface of the brain to the secret workings of the heart and the womb; from the pulse of life at the wrist to the unique engineering of the foot. Drawing on his own experiences as a doctor and GP, he blends first-hand case studies with reflections on the way the body has been imagined and portrayed over the millennia. If the body is a foreign country, then to practise medicine is to explore new territory: Francis leads the reader on an adventure through what it means to be human. Both a user's guide to the body and a celebration of its elegance, this book will transform the way you think about being alive, whether in sickness or in health. Published in association with the Wellcome Collection.

Download and read online Changed for Good in PDF and EPUB From Adelaide in "Guys and Dolls" to Nina in "In the Heights" and Elphaba in "Wicked," female characters in Broadway musicals have belted and crooned their way into the American psyche. In this lively book, Stacy Wolf illuminates the women of American musical theatre - performers, creators, and characters -- from the start of the cold war to the present day, creating a new, feminist history of the genre. Moving from decade to decade, Wolf first highlights the assumptions that circulated about gender and sexuality at the time. She then looks at the leading musicals to stress the key aspects of the plays as they relate to women, and often finds overlooked moments of empowerment for female audience members. The musicals discussed here are among the most beloved in the canon--"West Side Story," "Cabaret," "A Chorus Line," "Phantom of the Opera," and many others--with special emphasis on the blockbuster "Wicked." Along the way, Wolf demonstrates how the musical since the mid-1940s has actually been dominated by women--women onstage, women in the wings, and women offstage as spectators and fans.

His guides include famous explorers from the past - Leichhardt, Sturt, Strehlow and Giles - as well as artists, anthropologists, rodeo riders and even Hell's Angels.

Download and read online A Year by the Sea in PDF and EPUB The basis for the major motion picture of the same name. An entrancing memoir of how one woman's journey of self-discovery gave her the courage to persevere in re-creating her life. Life is a work in progress, as ever-changing as a sandy shoreline along the beach. During the years Joan Anderson was a loving wife and supportive mother, she had slowly and unconsciously replaced her own dreams with the needs of her family. With her sons grown, however, she realized that the family no longer centered on the home she provided, and her relationship with her husband had become stagnant. Like many women in her situation, Joan realized that she had neglected to nurture herself and, worse, to envision fulfilling goals for her future. As her husband received a wonderful job opportunity out-of-state, it seemed that the best part of her own life was finished. Shocking both of them, she refused to follow him to his new job and decided to retreat to a family cottage on Cape Cod. At first casting about for direction, Joan soon began to take pleasure in her surroundings and call on resources she didn't realize she had. Over the course of a year, she gradually discovered that her life as an "unfinished woman" was full of possibilities. Out of that magical, difficult, transformative year came A Year by the Sea, a record of her experiences and a treasury of wisdom for readers.

Download and read online Connections in PDF and EPUB The purpose of this book is to look for a richer means of communication in the classroom than the almost exclusive use of discursive language. It specifically focuses on the teaching of aesthetic appreciations, and offers presentational symbolism as a complement to discursive language. Part I locates some key descriptions and definitions of various kinds of language in the works of Huyghe, Langer, Wheelwright and Denton. It also stresses the limitations of discursive language and then focuses on the inability of discursive language to communicate appreciative feelings. Part II offers a semiological approach to presentational symbolism, studies the key elements of the language of images, treats the relationship between images and discursive language, considers the relationship between music, images and verbal language, and focuses on the correspondences between various art forms.
