After shoulder dislocation, Pictures/video showing very limited range of motion in shoulder!

video done JUN 4th 2018:

Demonstrating how I still have limited range of motion a long time after my dislocated shoulder occurred the night before Easter(APR 1). Video done JUN 4. I can use my uninjured left arm to stretch my injured right arm further which demonstrates some of my shoulder muscles in my right arm do not function at this time! I do continue to stretch my right arm with and without the help of my left arm! I do swing a 5 lb dumbbell through this range of motion I have in my right arm to strengthen it and can do a bicep curl holding two 5 lb dumbbells in my right hand. Also can do a squat to chest exercise two handed with 20 lb dumbbell for over 1 minute now!
For further background on this accident and my rehab start with this blog post and then check out later blog posts on this subject:

My range of motion in my right arm is quite limited. I did have my dislocated arm worked on at the VA hospital ER on Easter morning and I am sure the professionals brought in on call after me waiting a number of hours in pain did the best they could with the help of Xrays! I just had a lot more damage from my very hard fall onto a concrete sidewalk than just a dislocation as pain in elbow, hand, upper arm, shoulder and ribs for weeks after accident continuing to the present seems to indicate. Have not been back to VA hospital since missing a walk in type appointment due to not finding parking in massive traffic jam at hospital 8 days later on a Tuesday! I was in pain and my friend driving was also in pain due to injuries still healing from an car accident around Halloween! I gave up on the VA which was hard to get rides to and which may have costed me time and money I could not afford with my dire financial situation!

Spiritual value not hurt by shoulder dislocation&associated injuries from my fall the night before Easter

This is an update, have written about this previously. For those who have not kept up on my progression toward recovery from this accident, here is a link to the first in a series of blog posts I have on this subject: https://astrogoodwin.wordpress.com/2018/04/07/how-am-i-feeling-6-days-after-my-shoulder-was-dislocated-and-put-back-early-easter-sunday/

Here is my daily evolving morning exercise/rehab program as of today, 5/28/18: Started with some stretching! Then, did various movements to rehab my right arm/shoulder’s range of motion with and without the 5 lb dumbbell! Did left handed weightlifting with 20 lb dumbbell and also did some 2 handed 20 lb dumbbell bicep curls combined with squats! Then did a little more stretching! Then did warm up quarter mile meditative walk before doing exhausting quarter mile run, and exhausting 3/4 mile meditative walk! I do everything with the great intensity that decades of extreme and creative spiritual physical training has enabled me to do!:

Range of motion for my arm with elbows straight is only 16 inches from side to side and 29 inches front to back! That means I am really limited in what I can do! At the elbow I am not limited, have full range of motion and getting my strength back! I do not have the time or money to find out what type of operation/surgery might work to improve this situation! My ability to function in the area I have of value(the spiritual) to the world is not harmed by this limitation and dealing with this situation has made me have to become even stronger spiritually using my very advance meditative techniques to enable me to heal a lot of the damage done and to handle the pain that helps the body really focus on healing!

I understand that there is a lot of determination in this world to not deal with the pain and hard work and change required to advance further spiritually and shed the intoxicating addiction to the spiritual beliefs and techniques(rituals) of the past! So getting people to value my expertise is not easy here! But, anyone without spiritual blinders on should be able to see how messed up this world is spiritually and how important it is for every individual on this planet to do their part spiritually to improve these problematic conditions! Spiritual competence in the world starts with individual spiritual competence and as long as people arrogantly cling to the beliefs of the past this world will continue on a path that will not serve it well spiritually!

For those who are not familiar with my spiritual theories and techniques this link that follows has a list of links to an awful lot of my stuff of immense value I have on the internet that has not yet got much attention drawn to it by a public that tends to just like to have their present spiritual ideology reinforced rather than challenge themselves to advance further in this very important area related to creating a better future on this planet both individually and collectively:

My accident recovery and the challenges of being extremely unique in a spiritually backward world

Everyday I do left handed weightlifting along with rehab for my right arm/shoulder, an intense quarter mile run, many extremely intense and painful 3/4 of mile meditative walks! I do push my limits and the intensity of my meditative walks do make my pain in my right arm/shoulder worst! Being a spiritual pioneer that tries to challenge the limits of what I can handle spiritually, I try to make my cat-like crouched meditative technique even more intense so as to feel the pain even more acutely. I battle the pain in order to learn to handle it better, and also heal myself. The ability to handle pain really well is needed in order to develop the intense spiritual strength required to handle the really really serious problems of this challenging reality we are part of……………………………….
I do pay for how hard I push it with arm and shoulder pain at night! But, I am getting more use to intense pain and still get some good sleep! At least I can sleep lying down which I could not do for 4 weeks after the accident/fall/dislocated shoulder. More than a dislocation happened in this fall, my body is feeling pain in elbow, hand, and right side of chest! I did not think of other injuries when at the ER when I had a dislocated shoulder that demanded immediate attention. Have been on my own medically since that ER visit which suits me fine. I do best dealing with my medical issues on my own, and can not afford to do otherwise………………………………………………………………………………………………………
I do have serious survival issues that make so much in my life extremely difficult and society plays an extremely strong role in this due to its failures in serving me as well as it does others who have more “normal” needs! Society provides jobs, housing, and all sorts of public services for people who are very normal in their abilities, but is way too backward spiritually to understand and help address the basic need of someone as uniquely abled as me. People assume I fit in to society a lot more than I do and can be quite clueless as to the real circumstances I face trying to survive in this world. I am pretty much one of a kind and that is why I am the spiritual pioneer I am! I do not qualify for social security retirement due to limited work history and would not be alive today if not for the help of family and friends…………………………………………………………………
So many people with positions of power and influence in this world are really spoiled and arrogant, often blaming the victims of their inadequate policies/actions and abilities rather than becoming more responsible in their approach. They become too intoxicated by the money they make and power they are able to yield! Heavy spiritual consequences result in this highly technological age we now exist in when a society lacks an adequate level of spiritual maturity to deal with the serious problems within it! Seeing things from many sides and angles in all of its complexity is not easy! People often would rather have a tribal type mentality that irrationally ignores or condemns that which they are not familiar with! Religions and societies can be quite tribal and irrational in how they evaluate the value of what they believe to be true as compared to what others not in their group/ organization believe………………………………………………………………………….

How am I feeling 6 days after my shoulder was dislocated and put back early Easter Sunday?

At times not good at all: fever and nausea with intense pain in arm, at other times a lot better! Use ice on forehead and arm. Getting a little better over time. Must sleep sitting up using pillow on table or arm will hurt too much, Appointment Tuesday! Do not want to use the VA hospital too much! once cleared to rehab my injury I can do so myself using really good videos on youtube. I just did a lot of damage! I do not want a huge bill and do not trust the medical profession that much when it comes to understanding my unique body! I do feel that as soon as my tissues heals enough, I will start making really fast progress! I just have a very sensitive body that has been really pushed to the edge. But I am use to living on the edge and really trust my intuition will guide me well in the healing process! I do not take pain killers now, did take Ibuprofen at the beginning, but did not like the acid reflux and other side affects. So a lot of the pain is the result of this. But. I feel that I will heal faster if I feel the pain and am not knocked with pain killers. I am optimistic that I will come back stronger than ever! Tuesday will give me information on how the healing process is going! All so complicated. My body is use to being pushed hard by me, so I will continue to challenge it in any way I think will speed up its progress even if at times quite painful!

When I fell while doing a meditative walk in the dark last Saturday around 10 PM and dislocated my shoulder in rare posterior direction(3 to 6% of dislocations)and with the strong yanking done to get it back in place, muscle/tissue damage was done! I do not normally do well with the medical profession and my neurologically different body! I am good at doing my own research and self treating my own body! I am not concerned with it dislocating again since my body tends to be tight rather than loose which is what makes recurring dislocation more frequent and happen more often with younger people. My accident happened in a way that was like an instant complete stop upon forward moving impact with the ground and the impact was very violent and quite a shock! The dislocation did not happen easily!
My world has not fallen apart because of the shoulder dislocation that occurred as a result of a fall! I will make a fast recovery and still be more advanced in my meditative exercise techniques than anyone else afterwards, since I will not lose most of my head start I have as a result of all my past effort and training! I did have to make one more adjustment to my astrology system that only an accident like this one would force me to! I immediately was doing daily quarter mile painful meditative walks, and after practicing my running in short bursts inside my house for a while started doing daily runs of a quarter of a mile also! I will be ready! I will be doing some strengthening of my left arm soon so that it can help my other arm to be able to handle the type of 2 handed dumbbell swings I do sooner!
I have become a lot better at using my left arm and hand due to not being able to use my dominant right! Eating can be messy, but I am getting better at it. I do have finer motor skill limitations that affect my left arm/hand more tan my right. This was typed with one hand and mostly using two fingers on it!

DUALITY IS EXTREMELY VALUABLE SPIRITUALLY!

Duality is what gives us spiritual strength! My training helps me handle the challenges and deepness that comes with this duality that is so important to our reality! Without duality nothing would exist! Some people are spiritually attracted to nothingness! I try to stay clear of delusional beliefs. I am trying to do something about how backward we are spiritually in this world and the unhealthy physical and spiritual consequences that result to the individuals who exist here and to the planet as a whole. LOVE vs HATE: We would not be able to exist spiritually if we did not have strong connections with other spirits. When we are between lives our deep connection with other spirits that are incarnated in different physical worlds help us to maintain our identity while we are without a direct physical connection ourselves. Love does draw us to the special bonds required in order to be reincarnated in a new life. But hate plays a role. We would hate to not have the healthy spiritual connection we require. We would hate anything that would destroy or harm that which we need to function as we desire. If we do not hate losing something we need, then we do not truly value it. The more you hate losing something the more you value it! You love what you value, you hate that which you see as harmful to you! Contrast is not easy for some people to handle spiritually, but handling contrast is what gives one spiritual strength!

Pain is an important and valuable part of life!!!!

One has to face the pain inside oneself in order to heal and get stronger and healthier physically and spiritually! The cycle of abuse toward others and oneself must end on this planet to the degree we are able to do this! We all need to develop the character required to carry our part of the burden and responsibility in this world! Pain can destroy people or make them stronger depending on how well they are able to deal with it avoid its destructive side! Hard work can be quite painful a lot of the time especially when done to improve oneself spiritually! We have so many serious problems on this planet and we need everyone to carry their own weight.
Pain lets one know how hard one can push oneself and get away with it safely! Fear works with the help of pain to enable one to be able to do amazing things and to sense when one has to be extra careful and do ones best to avoid really damaging consequences. The reason I can read my body so well is because I do not use pain killers and focus so hard on reading the signals my body sends me to let me know what I can safely get away with and when I need to focus really hard at adjusting what I am doing in order to avoid injury when exercising extremely hard physically and spiritually!! In order to achieve a lot in life one must be able to put up with a lot of pain and hardship and embrace its character building qualities. One should avoid the negative side of both pain and fear, but understand and value their positive side!
Here is my YouTube video on this subject:

Theoretical Physics is not a good basis for developing spiritual theories

This is what I posted in response to this YouTube video: “Victor Stenger Skepticon 3 The Abuse of Physics by Theist and Spiritualists”

Theoretic physics is not a good basis for developing spiritual theories. One needs to use really effective intense and difficult meditative exercise techniques to fine tune ones spiritual sensitivity and build up ones spiritual/emotional strength so that one will be able to better figure out what spiritual theories will enable one to perform more effectively in this challenging physical universe we are part of. To anyone well tuned in spiritually, this world now will appear very backward spiritually when it comes to how well we are able to perform in a very challenging highly technologically advance world we now live in in which small mistakes can sometimes have extremely heavy consequences.

I avoid heavy polarization that tend to be so dominant in this world and adds to so much conflict and trouble in this world and prevents people from working together well to find better solutions to the difficult problems of our times. Often the truth will be found somewhere in the complicated middle where a lot of variables and angles need to be dealt with. I am a very unusual person who has his focus on the spiritual frontier, so I do tend to identify to quite a degree with those on the frontier of science. But, I feel science has gotten far ahead of where we are spiritually on this planet. I feel we are capable of getting a lot more out of ourselves spiritually/emotionally and that science will advance even farther once we advance further in how much we all can get out of ourselves spiritually!!

Very tough for a “differently abled” spiritual pioneer on a spiritually backward planet

I keep taking 3 grams of vitamin C a day to keep me from getting sick as I continue to push myself closer to the edge spiritually with my extremely intense meditative walking, meditative running and meditative dumbbell swing exercise routines! I do take 2 B-complex vitamin tablets, a multivitamin mineral tablet and 2 calcium-magnesium-zinc tablets a day!  Routinely I eat oatmeal with each of my 6 meal small calorie restricted meals which also contain a helping of canned greens(mainly spinach)or an occasional raw tomato or fruit.   Most people in this spiritually backward world do not value whether someone with my unique spiritual abilities is able to survive here and it is so hard to reach those that are truly open to a spiritual pioneer like me! It is do so hard to wake this world up spiritually so that it will develop the spiritual maturity to handle the intense problems that come with the advanced technological age we now exist in! I now weight 121 at 5′ 10″ with the spiritual ascetic body type I am creating! I am not restrained by the conservative spiritual mindset of science or of the predominating spiritual beliefs of the past! I am a spiritual realist and not into crazy spiritual beliefs created by wild imaginations that do not interface that well with the type of reality we now exist in!

I have spent a lot of my life having a certain amount of denial of being “differently abled”! This is not surprising since most other people tended to be in denial of this about me also! I now need to really stand up for myself and fight the spiritual insensitivity that exists in this world toward people with very special abilities that come as the result of being very limited in what they are able to do! In order to advance further spiritually and in other ways in this world we need to better utilize all the talent we have in this world! Everyone can also develop more of their capabilities provided they develop more spiritual sensitivity toward themselves and others as unique individuals!

A healthy ego is so valuable to a spiritual pioneer like me

My self preservation requires I become better at what I am really good at which is in the area of spiritual development! My ego is heavily invested in this! To be good in this area one has to be really good at dealing with and embracing change! Nothing wrong with believing strongly in ones self! The word ego is often defined based on what one believes! The definition has to evolve as one evolves. There are different definitions of this word that are accepted! I am not into just being tuned into the spiritual beliefs/theories that are so readily available on this planet Earth that one can so easily just accept them without challenging them provided ones ego is removed! To develop better spiritual ideas to this world one must have an ego strong enough to enable one to go up against the spiritual status quo and its psychic dominance in this world!

How we envision God affects our spiritual effectiveness on this Earth

I feel as one become more tuned in spiritually how you picture God will change. We need to feel more empowered spiritually in this world in order to become more responsible here for the spiritual state this world is in! The vision of an all powerful autocratic God just does not help us advance enough further spiritually which we badly need to do in order to positively transform a world that badly need to be! We have to see us as the front line spirits that have an awful lot of impact on the world we exist in and then develop ourselves to perform our role better! We have to see our physical universe as being very vital to us spiritually in order to put enough of our spiritual energy into improving the part of this universe we now exist in! Every united component of our reality has a spirit and so the physical universe as a whole must have one. I believe we as advanced individual spirits must nurture both the physical world we live in and the spirit that maintains it in order to make things work well spiritually here. But, we can only properly nurture that which we really appreciate the value of and that we understand really well!

Being individual front line spirits we are able to use the unique abilities we can develop spiritually to make quite a difference in the universe we are part of! Being incarnated in a physical body in a challenging physical world enables us to develop really great guiding spiritual theories and training techniques that can greatly increase our spiritual capabilities to impact the universe we are part of. When we make ourselves a lot less important in this world by making God play too strong a role we really weaken our spiritual effectiveness. When God is envisioned as so powerful that only God is considered eternal, this really weakens us! But, when we see us as eternal advanced individual spirits that play an extremely important role in how our universe and its spirit(God) functions, we really empower ourselves and enable us to value the need to make the effort to develop further so that we can play this vital role. We have made such advances in recent centuries in the areas of science and technology in this world and need to now do the same in the spiritual area. We can not do this if we do not see how much we are capable of spiritually and belittle the power we have in this universe! We can do really amazing things spiritually in this challenging physical world when we function as advanced individual spirits with the collective oneness that can come from getting a lot more out of ourselves spiritually as separate advanced individual spirits.
