Emancipate Your Mind: 073: Understanding and Calming and Overstimulated Nervous System

Over the past couple of years, we’ve collectively taken several hits to our nervous system. When that happens, sometimes we get stuck in a pattern of “fight or flight”, constantly on alert for the next threat. In this episode, we talk about how the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems operate and complement one another during stressful events in our lives and some exercises and tools we can employ to activate our Vagus Nerve and bring about a sense of calm during times of stress. ____________________________________________________________________ SOURCES: HARVARD HEALTH:  [“Understanding the Stress Response”] (https://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/understanding-the-stress-response) , July 6, 2020 [“The Vagus Nerve: The Key to Calming a ‘Wigged Out’ Autonomic Nervous System] (https://www.selfmatters.ca/post/the-vagus-nerve-the-key-to-calming-a-wigged-out-autonomic-nervous-system-flight-fight-freeze) “, Amanda Burns, MA, RN, RPN, RCC, August 22, 2021 Polyvagal Institute:  [https://www.polyvagalinstitute.org/] (https://www.polyvagalinstitute.org/) ____________________________________________________________________ JOIN THE DISCUSSION Come join the  [Emancipate Yourself Facebook group] (https://www.facebook.com/groups/370375144009891)  for more discussion about the podcast and random thoughts that pop up while I’m researching or in the shower.

Rameumptom Ruminations: 056: Navigating a Faith Crisis While Working at Church Headquarters

A faith crisis is a delicate matter for anyone to navigate. My guest today has a unique experience with his journey out of the church. Brian Harris was employed at the church headquarters in the correlation department as he deconstructed his faith. His unique perspective on how the church operates will be a fresh look at the LDS church. I was lucky enough for Brian to offer me his time not only to share his story, but the next two episodes after this one will delve into the work he did for the church.

Emancipate Your Mind: 072: Why You Feel Guilty About Resting, Part 1: Internalized Capitalism

Have you ever felt guilt or anxiety when you try to rest, relax, or go on vacation? Do you sometimes feel driven to be productive, even when you’re exhausted mentally or physically? In this series we’ll explore some of the common reasons individuals find themselves unable to be fully present when resting. In this episode, we explore the unique American culture of internalized capitalism flavored with Puritan work ethic that often makes those of us who live in the USA feel guilty for doing anything other than working. ____________________________________________________________________ RESOURCES FOR THIS EPISODE: “The Protestant Ethic and Spirit of Capitalism”, Max Weber, 1905 Harvard Business Review, 2013,  [“There Really Is Such a Thing as the Protestant Work Ethic”] (https://hbr.org/daily-stat/2013/08/there-really-is-such-a-thing-a.html) Pacific Standard, September 4, 2013,  [“The Protestant Work Ethic is Real”] (https://psmag.com/economics/protestant-worth-ethic-real-65544) Cato.Org,  [“What Americans Think About Poverty, Wealth, And Work”] (https://www.cato.org/publications/survey-reports/what-americans-think-about-poverty-wealth-work) , 2019 [“Hours Worked in Europe and the US: New Data, New Answers”] (https://docs.iza.org/dp10179.pdf) , August 2016.

Mormonism LIVE: 080: The Patriarchal Blessing Connection

RFM and Bill take a look at Patriarchal Blessings looking at what these are and what they are not and even take a look at multiple Patriarchal Blessings from the same patriarchs attempting to untangle inspiration from the rote and mundane. OVERVIEW AND ELDRED G. SMITH   Patriarchal Blessings are to declare lineage, and then to give direction, counsel and promise predicated on worthiness. Patriarchs in every stake now; but the Church Patriarch Office has been done away with. Brief Clip from Eldred G. Smith in 1976 General Conference so we can remember what it used to be like when we had a Church Patriarch. We will also be talking more about him later.   ELDRED G. SMITH (April Gen Con 1976—Who is Jesus? Emeritus General Authority (6 Oct 1979 – 4 Apr 2013) [https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/general-conference/1976/04/who-is-jesus?lang=eng] (https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/general-conference/1976/04/who-is-jesus?lang=eng) TIME STAMP 0.00-0.24 Eldred was a frequent speaker in general conference, and spoke about patriarchal blessings but only before 1971 when they started putting up the general conference talks at the church’s website. At least this gives a sample of what he sounded like.   1--               OVERVIEW OF PATRIARCHAL BLESSINGS   1--   Saints Unscripted with Patriarch on the Show! [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzahqA5Ot9E] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzahqA5Ot9E) TIME STAMP 6.00-7.32 It is revelation from God; all the promises will be fulfilled; it is personal scripture to the recipient.     2--October 1986 General Conference—Thomas S. Monson—Second Counselor in First Presidency   YOUR PATRIARCHAL BLESSING: A LIAHONA OF LIGHT [https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/general-conference/1986/10/your-patriarchal-blessing-a-liahona-of-light?lang=eng] (https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/general-conference/1986/10/your-patriarchal-blessing-a-liahona-of-light?lang=eng)   TIME STAMP 5.40-6.27 Who is this man, this patriarch, through whom such seership and priesthood power flow? How is he called? The Council of the Twelve Apostles has special responsibility pertaining to the calling of such men. From my own experience I testify that patriarchs are called of God by prophecy. How else could our Heavenly Father reveal those to whom such prophetic powers are to be given? A patriarch holds an ordained office in the Melchizedek Priesthood. The patriarchal office, however, is one of blessing—not of administration.   NOTE: WHY IS IT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE APOSTLES TO CALL A PATRIARCH WHEN IT IS DETERMINED BY LINEAGE? NOTE: WHY DOES PRESIDENT MONSON FEEL COMPELLED TO ADD THE LANGUAGE,  THAT THE PATRIARCHAL OFFICE IS ONE OF BLESSING, “NOT ONE OF ADMINISTRATION”?   3--   PATRIARCHAL BLESSINGS NOT TO BE SHARED Gospel Topics Essay on Church Website under “Patriarchal Blessings” [https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/manual/gospel-topics/patriarchal-blessings?lang=eng] (https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/manual/gospel-topics/patriarchal-blessings?lang=eng)   Patriarchal blessings are sacred and personal. They may be shared with immediate family members, but should not be read aloud in public or read or interpreted by others. Not even the patriarch or bishop or branch president should interpret it.   4--BACK TO THOMAS S. MONSON TALK FROM 1986.   [https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/general-conference/1986/10/your-patriarchal-blessing-a-liahona-of-light?lang=eng] (https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/general-conference/1986/10/your-patriarchal-blessing-a-liahona-of-light?lang=eng)   TIME STAMP 10:13-11:14 A patriarchal blessing is a revelation to the recipient, even a white line down the middle of the road, to protect, inspire, and motivate activity and righteousness. A patriarchal blessing literally contains chapters from your book of eternal possibilities. I say eternal, for just as life is eternal, so is a patriarchal blessing. What may not come to fulfillment in this life may occur in the next. We do not govern God’s timetable. “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts” ( [Isa. 55:8–9] (https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/scriptures/ot/isa/55.8-9?lang=eng#p8) ).   NOTE: WE ALREADY GET THE APOLOGETIC FOR WHEN PATRIARCHAL BLESSINGS DO NOT COME TO PASS.   TIME STAMP 11.14-12.49 (NOTE-WE ARE JUST GOING TO DO THE FIRST FOUR SENTENCES OF THIS NEXT QUOTE; ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS ESTABLISH THAT THE ISSUE OF BRIEF OR LENGTHY PBs IS ADDRESSED)   Your patriarchal blessing is yours and yours alone. It may be brief or lengthy, simple or profound. Length and language do not a patriarchal blessing make. It is the Spirit that conveys the true meaning. Your blessing is not to be folded neatly and tucked away. It is not to be framed or published. Rather, it is to be read. It is to be loved. It is to be followed. Your patriarchal blessing will see you through the darkest night. It will guide you through life’s dangers. (NOTE: ORIGINAL SAYS “IT WILL PROTECT YOU.”) Unlike the struggling bomber of yesteryear, lost in the desert wastes, the sands and storms of life will not destroy you on your eternal flight. Your patriarchal blessing is to you a personal Liahona to chart your course and guide your way.   NOTE: QUESTION ABOUT LENGTH OF PATRIARCHAL BLESSING OBLIQUELY ANSWERED; BECAUSE OF THE IDEA THAT A LONGER BLESSING IS A BETTER BLESSING.   5--   PATRIARCHAL BLESSINGS DURING THE PRIESTHOOD BAN   Digest of the minutes of the meeting of the patriarchs of the church with the General Authorities held in Barratt Hall, Salt Lake City, Utah, Saturday, October 11, 1958, at 8:00 A.M. From Later Patriarchal Blessings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, pgs 559-563. Compiled by H. Michael Marquardt, published by The Smith-Pettit Foundation, Salt Lake City, 2012 [http://www.fullerconsideration.com/PatriarchalBlessingRevelator/patriarchmeeting1958.php] (http://www.fullerconsideration.com/PatriarchalBlessingRevelator/patriarchmeeting1958.php)       Joseph Fielding Smith speaking Now here is a problem which to me is serious. A patriarch gave a blessing to an individual who had Negro blood in his veins and said you are of the House of Israel and entitled to all the blessings of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. A Negro cannot hold the priesthood and not holding the priesthood they cannot, until the Lord removes the restriction, enter into the exaltation of the kingdom of God and that would not entitle them to all of the blessings of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. That is a very serious matter and we should be extremely careful to know the Lord is speaking to us because Negroes cannot receive the fullness. A Negro may come into the Church and we can do more for him than any other church on the face of the earth. If he is baptized and is faithful and true, he can enter the celestial kingdom, but he does not get exaltation, but as I understand it, the Lord will, in due time, remove the restrictions. Not in this world but the time will come, if the Negro receives the gospel and is true to the end, he may go to the celestial kingdom and when the right time comes the restrictions will be removed and he may receive all of the blessings. Now the reason as stated by President Brigham Young and some of the other brethren that the Negro cannot receive the priesthood is two fold. One is their own fault because of their attitude in the spirit world. They were not valiant for some cause which the Lord does not explain, and they were barred from receiving the priesthood but they were not barred from birth into this world, and were not denied the right to have a body. If he is faithful in his second estate, the time will come when these restrictions will be removed.   ***** 1-- We have a young man who joined the Church and there is a question as to his lineage. Is there any reason why they couldn’t call upon the patriarch to see if he could give it to them, to see whether or not they have colored blood? 2-- A patriarch has the right to have inspiration in a case of that kind. In a case where there might be a person suspected of having Negro blood, but it is not certain, they could go to a patriarch. He has the right to inspiration. In such a case the bishop should have the right inspiration too. There are some cases where I suppose no one could tell but the Lord.   6--   President James B. Faust gave 3/30/1980 BYU Talk on Patriarchal Blessings [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZOCVWNqxqw] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZOCVWNqxqw)  TIME STAMP 7.12-9.08   Elder Faust says that if not fulfilled in this life, will be fulfilled in the next THEN gives example of his father’s patriarchal blessing that said he would be blessed with “many beautiful daughters,” but had five sons. Moral—Even when the blessing doesn’t come to pass, it comes to pass. Heads I win, tails you lose.   TIME STAMP 17.29-18.08 LINEAGE Apologetic for why it is people in same family are of different tribes.   7--   SPENCER W. KIMBALL ON REPETITIVE BLESSINGS    Digest of the minutes of the meeting of the patriarchs of the church with the General Authorities held in Barratt Hall, Salt Lake City, Utah, Saturday, October 11, 1958, at 8:00 A.M. From Later Patriarchal Blessings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, pgs 559-563. Compiled by H. Michael Marquardt, published by The Smith-Pettit Foundation, Salt Lake City, 2012 [http://www.fullerconsideration.com/PatriarchalBlessingRevelator/patriarchmeeting1958.php] (http://www.fullerconsideration.com/PatriarchalBlessingRevelator/patriarchmeeting1958.php)   You would do well, since you have no counselors, if you took two or three of your blessings occasionally to your stake president and say, “Would you kindly glance over these blessings to see if you have any suggestions for me.” Sometimes we get in ruts. Sometimes when we give so many blessings, we use the same phraseology over and over until it has little meaning. Each blessing is individual; each person only receives one blessing in their lifetime; therefore you don’t give them routine. Every blessing is very special to that individual.    8--   Patriarch Robert Patterson—BYU—2000 [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WK6Ip8SMVl4] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WK6Ip8SMVl4) TIME STAMP 17.19-19.45 He goes over the main failsafes to patriarchal blessings; that just because a blessing isn’t stated, it doesn’t mean it won’t happen; and if a promise is stated, it doesn’t mean it will happen.   Talk about a rigged system! “Unknown to me . . .”  this from a patriarch!  LOL! Heads I win.  Tails you lose.

In this episode, we utilize the research of Internal Family Systems created by Richard Schwartz and the compassionate conversation techniques taught by  [Chris Burris] (https://burriscounseling.com/) , senior lead trainer for Internal Family Systems Institute to bury the hatchet with our inner critic and learn to understand it, befriend it, and ultimately work with it to create safety for us both. ____________________________________________________________________ JOIN THE DISCUSSION Come join the  [Emancipate Yourself Facebook group] (https://www.facebook.com/groups/370375144009891)  for more discussion about the podcast and random thoughts that pop up while I’m researching or in the shower.

Almost Awakened: 107: Separating Spirituality From Woo

Britt and Bill take a look at spiritual practices on the edges of society. Tarot, Necromancy, Divination, Crystals, Clairvoyance, Reiki, and many others.

Rameumptom Ruminations: 054: Cursed Be the Man that Trusteth in Man

“Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.” Jeremiah 17:5 The idea of only trusting in God presents a problem when deciding what is true. What source does not come from man? Even the sources that claim to come from God are channeled directly through man. In this episode, Scott shares an essay that a listener sent in and uses it as a jumping-off point to explore this subject.

Mormon Discussion: 366: Ancient Temple Rites Restored & Critical Thinking Skills

*NOTE* This episode is best viewed on youtube at [https://youtu.be/6KJqj6C-D5E] (https://youtu.be/6KJqj6C-D5E) Bill Reel and Spencer Wright sit down to take a look at the Youtube Video “Ancient Temple Rites Restored” ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8u0l13wX57E ) to see if this apologetic perspective holds up. Did Joseph Smith make connections to the ancient world in ways that impose there must have been a divine connection or could the data be reconciled in other ways and perhaps even more rational ways.
