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:

Right Shoulder dislocation update: rehab and my extremely valuable spiritual purpose

I could not sleep lying down for 5 weeks due to pain and refused to take pain killers or to risk hurting arm in sleep! A few days ago, I found a position on my back with a pillow holding my arm up in a position it could tolerate, although it was still painful! I do seem to have rotator cuff damage limiting my arm movement and producing pain! I can now eat with my right hand, brush my teeth with both hands(right hand helping best it can) and use a can opener! I still type with my left hand only! I can lift water bottles(not huge ones) with right hand, but using biceps only! When I do my frequent meditative walks, I do alternately swing my arms toward the front of my body which should help loosen up my range of motion! I do carefully test my range of motion in my right arm and do experiment a little with exercises found on youtube videos on shoulder rehab.

Did not go back to VA hospital since emergency room visit at time of accident(very early morning Apr 01-Easter.) Gave up on VA hospital after finding a serious parking problems there(when going to a walk-in appointment 9 days after accident) with an awful lot of traffic circling the hospital over and over again trying to find any parking spaces that would become available. I was in severe pain due to discomfort related to being in car and dealing with seat belt and my friend who drove me was also not feeling well! I was going to tell them anyway, that I would do the rehab on my own while at that follow up appointment! I can not afford anything that could put me in more dire financial shape, and trust myself a lot more than the medical profession when it comes to understanding my neurologically different body which I am extremely tuned into spiritually due to intense effort at this over a lifetime!

I may not know exactly what is going on related to all the damage that occurred as a result of the fall, but I can still use my extremely well trained intuition along with my knowledge and research in health and healing to guide me. I have been avoiding outside medical help my whole life and depending on myself to keep myself healthy, so this approach is not new to me! I have dealt with quite a number of serious health situations in my life on my own, motivated to quite a degree by my financial situation along with my confidence in my own ability to handle it on my own! Healing has a very strong spiritual side to it, which science often underestimates! My focus being extremely on the spiritual allows me to come strongly from that direction when it comes to healing myself.

We are still so backward spiritually on a planet that tends to be very resistant to advancing further in a a rational way in this area! People like me struggle to exist despite having so much to offer! I am training spiritually to handle extreme pain lately in order to make me stand out to a really great degree spiritually from others. I have to go up against the arrogance that exists in a time in which so many serious problems exist that people so readily choose to ignore! Crises often are required in order for people to lose their spiritual arrogance and face the harsh reality with the humility required to do the hard work required to find and apply the answers and solutions needed to make this world a healthy place to exist on spiritually! I have done my part and I need people to value and utilize what I have to offer spiritually! I should not be struggling just to survive in this world! I have so much stuff on the spiritual that is all over the internet! Anyone who is into advancing themselves and this world further spiritually should be willing to explore the value of what I have come up with! The collective mindset on this planet is just to locked in spiritually, making it hard to get certain ideas to reach many people. I just have been pretty much ignored with few people even reading what I have presented over a decade of posting stuff on the internet. For those who are serious about making a positive difference spiritually here is my link to links to an awful lot of the stuff I have on the internet:

Update on my shoulder dislocation recovery!

My arm may never completely recover, since I apparently had a lot of damage associated with the fall and dislocation Most people progress faster than I am! I most likely have rotator cuff(tendon) damage and maybe a fracture in my elbow. along with nerve damage and muscle tear! But, it will all heal well enough in time. The VA Hospital  did not check out more than what was required to relocate the shoulder with the specialist called in to the ER early Easter morning! Xrays where limited to dislocation site! But, I do have many good sources on the internet including videos to help guide me during the healing process! I trust myself more than the medical profession when it comes to figuring out the best course to heal myself. My nutrition and meditative exercises give me an advantage over others! It is true I have to be patient and weather the storm and pain that comes with it. But it is helping me get even stronger spiritually!

I do not advise anyone to do the type of risky things I do!  I only get away with it because of the unique abilities I was born with along with all the practice I have had during a lifetime of living on the edge physically and spiritually.  One can become very good at something when one does it over and over again and with great spiritual focus on getting away with it safely!  The desire to survive can enable one to do amazing things with what capabilities one possesses!

Moving toward eating healthier

I am not a professional in the field of nutrition, but do have a lot of understanding about diet from a spiritual perspective due to decades of focus in this area! Consulting with a competent medical professional with knowledge of nutrition is always advisable in order not to risk possible harm as a result of making drastic changes in ones diet! It can be quite risky if one does not know enough about what you are doing when making changes in your diet especially when they are quite strong ones!!!

Personally, I only eat food in order to perform better! I am extreme when it comes to my dietary strictness! My mainly oatmeal and cooked greens diet with vitamin and mineral supplements does enable me to push the edge intensely with the extreme spiritual-physical exercise routine I need to do to be the spiritual pioneer I am! Different diets work for different people! One needs to read up on diet from good/reliable sources and find the diet that works for you! Extreme diets like mine will work only for rare individuals with a very extreme focus on the spiritual with the extreme training and spiritual programming done over a long period of time that come with it! It takes a long time to adjust to an extreme type diet like mine and a lot of nutritional research and intuitive/spiritual awareness of what will work best for your individual/unique needs based on what types of demands you place on the body! Different body types are required to do different types of work and diets need to be tailored to meet the different demands put on your body! Again, nutritional experts should be consulted when needed to ensure one does not harm oneself with a diet that does not meet your needs well enough!

The body takes a while to change so one has to make gradually changes in it. One can not focus so much on weight, since it takes quite a while to lose it. One will feel healthier as you eat healthier and get more exercise! Walking is a good exercise to start with! Food can be very addictive since the food industry has designed a lot of its products to be that way. If you build up a good enough hunger you will find healthy food more appealing! You need to eat regularly so you get a constant supply of good nutrition especially protein! Eating small meals and lowering your daily calorie intake will help one to become hungrier between meals! One can eat less at a meal when one is less hungry and a little more when one is quite hungry! Building up a healthier appetite is good, but one should not go long periods without nutrition and stress the body too much!

Most people do not need a lot of protein, but a regular supply! Vegetables are important! The focus need to be on becoming healthier, and this takes time, but one will notice subtle changes over time. You will become more tuned in spiritually as you lose your addiction to food and eat mainly for health reasons! One needs to try to get one pleasure from doing positive things to make this world a better place by contributing what talent ones has to it. One needs to be spiritually strong in this world and understand that over indulgence and addictions are what is messing up this world spiritually! People just do not take this world and its problems seriously enough! Healing oneself and the traumas of ones past is not easy! One has to toughen oneself up, and that takes a continuous effort over a long period of time to achieve, But, one has to take one step at a time and understand that when one starts steering a good course in life one will get some benefits spiritually immediately! Remember that excess fat and refined sugar is what overloads the body with calories!

Here is a link to my blog post on this topic. We are all different so need to tailor our diet to fit what works best for us! https://astrogoodwin.wordpress.com/2015/08/28/the-diet-i-use-to-help-me-handle-my-intense-physicalspiritual-exercise-2/

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:

Trauma, denial, distortion of reality and projection of ones flaws on others and outside world.

We live in a world full of all sorts of #abusive behavior some directed toward others and by lashing out at the outside world(society). Some people indulge in reckless behavior; others in bad eating habits or harmful #drug #addictions. Collectively groups of people will get #angry and irrational and often countries will be propelled by this #anger to lash out at other country militarily without first coolly evaluating how to rationally work out their differences. In a world like this trauma will occur an awful lot with the psychological problems that come with it. The cycle of #abuse will continue as the #trauma even when healed physically will often leave #psychological scars and the #denial that comes with not wanting to face the deep #emotions that come with them. This denial and the distortion of reality that comes with it leads to a continuation of abusive behavior in this world. We all are abusive to some degree,since no one is perfect! But, we have a very high level of abusive behavior on this spiritually backward planet that needs to be addressed in order for us to develop the spiritual maturity to deal with the intense problems that living in a very technological advance world presents to us!

    Our spiritual programming determines how well we are able to face reality at its most challenging! If we have spiritual beliefs that tune of out of or devalue part of the reality we exist in, we will weaken our ability to tune into and cope with this reality. Seeing reality from all sides and angles is not easy to do! People often like to see only the part of reality that they are comfortable with based on where they are at psychologically and the impact of past trauma on them. One can not heal and grow further spiritually if one does not face ones flaws and the spiritual theories one has that tend to be supportive of the view of reality ones currently accepts. When ever one spiritually distorts reality one will suffer self abuse and also will be abusive of others. One can feel really justified in being abusive as a result of the denial that becomes part of ones psychology and spiritual state of being.
     One can not advance further spiritually if one is not willing to see ones spiritual/psychological problems and the #spiritual theories that underpin them. If one is locked into some spiritual beliefs as a result of them being supportive of the state of denial that comes with not facing and healing the spiritual/emotional impact of past trauma, it can be quite difficult to advance to a healthier level spiritually! When someone tries to reach these people with the strong spiritual energy and spiritual theories required to help them to heal they will often lash out at that person no matter how rational their presentation is. Irrationality and the distortion of reality is often part of those who have suffered abuse or trauma and not healed psychologically from it. Arrogance and an inability to face ones spiritual shortcomings is what prevents people from being receptive to the type of spiritual help they need. One can not help someone spiritually until they feel that they could benefit from such help. Often it takes a really challenging situation in their life and the hard lessons that come with it to get people to really see their shortcomings and want to spiritually #heal and improve their understanding of reality in a way that will prevent future hard lessons of the same type from happening again!
     The truth is most often in the complicated middle and requires one is able to see things from many angles and sides. One can through really challenging spiritual #meditation type training gain a stronger spiritual grip on reality and enable one to better handle the pain/struggle that often comes with getting more of a grip on reality and the truth that comes with this. #Pain is part of life and must be faced in order to gain more spiritual maturity and connection with reality. Once one has obtained an ability to handle a heavier dose of reality, then one will develop the #intuition required to sense which people are reliable/serious sources and thus become better at determining what sources are unreliable or not solid enough or have a feel to them that do not gibe with your sense of how #reality actually works.
Here is a link to my blog on the meditative/spiritual type training I do:

Life can bring out the most in you and those one attracts to you!

Even really positive relationships can be quite challenging since one has to invest an awful lot of oneself into them to get the most out of them for both parties involved. . It is the challenging side of life that helps us grow the most spiritually. Challenging relationships that do not work out that well can teach us a lot and help us really appreciate the positive ones we are able to develop later. It is good to have expectations that do not preclude the positive. Unrealistic expectations either too positive or too negative do not serve us well. Having a balanced spiritual view of reality is so important. Our spiritual programming can always be improved on so that we will attract better people into our lives.

It is important to work hard to prepare oneself for the challenges that come with life. Pitfalls do exist that one can be aware of so as to avoid them. Often hard lessons are part of life, we need to learn from them and become deeper spiritually as a result. The people who become the strongest spiritually will have the hardest lessons and learn an awful lot from them. It is positive to be able to handle really big challenges, since this world has so many of them that need to be positively addressed. One can connect with people who have really serious spiritual problems and actually help them to spiritually grow and heal from them. But, one can only help those that are open to being helped. Also one has to be open to being helped oneself spiritually in order to be able to help someone else do so. People with really deep psychological/spiritual problems can be extremely hard to heal. But, that is the challenge that this world we live in presents us with. If we are going to heal the serious underlying spiritual problems that exist in this world we also are going to have to be good at helping people dealing with serious spiritual problems heal, including ourselves. Life is rough and requires a continuous effort to heal from its challenges and become healthier physically and spiritually as a result.

The importance of being grounded in this “insane” world

So many spiritual beliefs(theories)that dominate on this planet tend to tune people out quite a bit spiritually from the very challenging physical reality all that are reading this are a vital part of.  We are incarnated in a physical reality that can really test how well our spiritual beliefs/theories really work.  So many spiritual beliefs/theories tend to sort of slander this physical reality or discredit its value and prefer fantasy type beliefs that envision a better type reality that is easier to handle as an afterlife/existence.  People often have spiritual beliefs or theories that distract or remove their focus away from the important challenges that this world offers us as a means to help us grow further spiritually and give us a serious purpose to help us get the most out of what positive value we can develop and contribute to making this world a better place to exist in.

Delusional spiritual beliefs  can be intoxicating like an addictive drug that puts one into a “feel good” state that has not been earned by doing the hard work in order to make one really healthy spiritually and physically and capable of contributing something of real value to a world full of so many serious problems that are not being properly addressed.  Permissiveness, over indulgence, and the desire for  instant gratification tends to weaken people spiritually and make them less responsible and disciplined and unable to carry a reasonable amount of the burden of transforming this world into a place we can really  be proud to be part of.  So many people desire to escape from this world spiritually rather than directly face their responsibilities to do their part to address the really messed up conditions that exist here that are rooted in the spiritual.

We can not adequately address the serious problems that exist on this planet if we can not handle the emotions and pain connected with them.  The truth is often quite painful, but the pain is worth the price of gaining the spiritual strength that enables one to handle more of the truth and thus enable one to be able to be a lot more constructive at finding and implementing solutions to serious problems existing here on this Earth.  The stronger and more aware one is spiritually the more one can handle the painful/challenging side of life.  Pain can really test how grounded one is spiritually.  The spiritual is powered by emotions, and the people who are the most effective are the ones who can not only handle really intense and difficult emotions, but channel these emotions to make really positive things happen in this world.  When one can really feel the emotions related to a extremely difficult situation or serious problem, one can do a lot spiritually to transform the situation.  Meditating on difficult emotions enables one to not only transform these emotions in a positive way, but impact the source of these emotions in a positive way.  Prayer/meditation can be used to help people in trouble provided one has a good spiritual connection with them and what their challenges are.  But, one can only help people who desire that help and are open to improving on the inadequate spiritual beliefs/theories that contributed to their problems.

One can train oneself to become able to handle really intense spiritual-spiritual states.  Challenging spiritual/emotional states always have an impact on oneself physically due to the stress involved.  Intense physical exercise when combined with intense meditative breathing techniques can condition oneself spiritually and physically to be able to handle extremely difficult(torturous)spiritual states.  People who exercise hard often refer to their exercise sessions as torture.  I have blog posts on the dumbbell swing exercise I do for 6 nonstop minutes that I developed in order to help me handle the most intense and difficult emotional/spiritual states possible without adversely affecting my health!  When one becomes really strong and grounded spiritually it becomes a lot easier to resist harmful temptations and to do what is healthy in ones life when it comes to diet and exercise.  One can develop the ability/intuition to find the diet and nutritional supplements that help you to handle pushing yourself extremely hard physically and spiritually.   One can develop the spiritual theories and mindset that can help one to handle extreme spiritual and physical states and still be able to sense intuitively what one can safely get away with.  One has to be able to become very vigilant(aware) and careful when one is pushing the edge an awful lot spiritually and physically.

Also required in order to handle this challenging physical world we are such a vital part of is the ability to function spiritually in a very low energy state.  In a low energy state the spirit becomes a lot more sensitive and aware spiritually.  In order to have a great deal of spiritual control over oneself, one needs to be able to adjust ones energy to the requirements of the situation you find yourself in.  Also when you push yourself very hard doing things that require a lot of energy one needs to be able to rest and recover which is best done spiritually in a love energy state.  Healing from an illness often requires that one not eat much and lower ones blood sugar quite a bit. In times of crisis one often needs to go from high energy state to low energy state quickly based on the situation.  Sometimes it is best to sort of disappear from the scene and let others take over while you recover and evaluate what you need to do next while in a very aware/sensitive low energy spiritual state .  I use slow intense meditative walking with short quick steps, shoulder movement and rapid breathing to enhance my ability to function in a low energy state spiritually.  I find meditative walking help my stationary type meditation work so much better.  I have blog posts on this site dealing with all forms of meditation.  Here is a link to one of them:   https://astrogoodwin.wordpress.com/2016/10/04/meditative-walking-developing-a-stronger-spiritual-connection-with-the-physical/

I have developed spiritual theories and techniques through a really intense spiritual focus over a lifetime especially over the last 30 years.  I am almost 65 years old, so it has taken me a lot of time to get where I am at now.  My spiritual theories and techniques have helped me develop an astrology system that has a great deal of spiritual understanding represented in its formulation!

Running/cardiovascular exercise, injuries and interpreting pain

Very hard to figure out how much one can safely get away in regard to a body part that is hurt to some degree and letting you know this through pain. General muscle soreness feels different than a very targeted pain in a specific body part. It is important to figure out what the problem might be, before accessing whether one can still exercise. I would monitor what ever pain I was feeling very carefully when warming up or exercising on a less intense level in order to evaluate exactly what I can safely get away with without aggravating the problem. One has to depend on a certain intuitive sense. Often an injury is not that serious and leaves one with enough strength to exercise on a less intense level or in a different way that avoids using the injured part as much.

I once got an impact injury to my knee when running a 1/2 marathon trail race, but finished the race before the knee really started hurting. I had built up a lot of weekly mileage that I did not want to lose, and thought that since my body had finished the race after the impact injury okay, that I should be able to run on that injury somehow. So, I would take quite a while to warm up while my knee was in a lot of pain, but once warmed up the pain would be a lot less so I would run carefully continuing with similar amount of weekly mileage. I would ice down my knee afterwards. It took about a month to heal. I had run with knee injuries before while healing them, but never one that had that much pain involved.

I am now dealing with pain in my lower back, but am managing to control this while continuing my exercise routine, but must constantly stretch my back, since I believe it is muscle tightness that causes the area to become more inflamed. This strategy seems to be working. I feel one can often intuitively sense how much tension an injured/hurt body part can handle, and how to limit ones exercise in order to protect it.

Often, I feel when one overdoes ones exercise the body chemistry will be affected(may become more acidic)and in turn can inflame a vulnerable body part making it more subject to being injured/hurt. I feel one needs to gain the ability to read your body cues so one can adjust ones intensity so as to better avoid harming oneself physically in some way. I find extra breathing often helps and often focusing more on ones upper body movements often helps one protect ones legs. It is such a fine line between pushing ones limits and going beyond ones limits and harming oneself. One just has to focus an awful lot on what is happening with ones body when one exercises. Focusing too much on other things while exercising can lessen ones ability to pick up the subtle signals the body is sending you. The more you focus on what signals the body is sending you the better you become at interpreting them.

I must state that can be very risky to not have certain(non-minor) injuries check out by medical professionals to determine their cause and what treatment would be advisable in order to help fix and properly rehabilitate them..

Helping to Heal others through Spiritual Means

When it comes to being effective at using spiritual means to help in healing others,it is so important to be really good at doing all that it takes to heal oneself and get oneself into a very healthy physical/spiritual state. That is because one can not send spiritual energy to others that one does not yourself have and apply to yourself. Also, it is important to be able to give guidance as to how someone can improve their lifestyle/habits so that they can move in an healthier direction and not be as likely to get sick. It is not easy to advice people on diet, exercise, and spiritual practices that will help them become healthier, because everyone is different and one needs to have broad knowledge in this area in order to offer helpful suggestions to them.

I tend to be limited to giving to the internet at this time when it comes to trying to reach people spiritually with what I have to offer. I have had some good results, but still feel direct interaction with others is preferable and I want to have more of that in the future. But, the internet can provide really good practice and I have found that I can be helpful to people who are struggling with a variety of really strong spiritual/physical challenges even though my connection with them is limited to the internet. I would not assume that someone would not learn a lot through the internet. I feel some people may merit really advanced placement in a spiritual healing course due to their past training whether from the internet or independent study.

Often when someone joins a new religion or spiritual group, it is assumed they do not have have any valuable past spiritual experience to offer. So often tribal energy dominates religious and spiritual organizations. Often people can have a lot of spiritual understanding, but not be familiar with the unique language used by a religious/spiritual organization/group. I admit that I tend not to fit in well with traditional type religious/spiritual organizations and tend to do better with organizations that use simpler language and focus more on being creative and practical in how they seek to gain results
