Ancestral and societal belief structures help people become a part of society, however they also 'implant' limitations of 'fight', 'flight' or 'freeze' directly into the nervous systems. This occurs in-Utero, and in early childhood development. All of the structures that govern how an adult responds to the environment are laid down in these first few years.
It is said that if the optimal environment for the expansive growth of children is established in the first two years of a child's life, then the following developmental stages right through adolescence, will be relatively smooth. The child will exhibit the confidence to expand their unique authentic self, be able to emotionally self-regulate, whilst maintaining contact with parental guidance.
If on the other hand, these early years are full of stress, where the parent is 'trapped' within their own early life limiting structures, then, to the extent that this stress prevents them from being 'present', to be able to address the needs of the child, then the parent can expect to 'play' catch up with the child throughout adolescence as their children have already lost the confidence in adult guidance. Children like this tend to rely on 'peer guidance' as they grow into independence. They often show signs of depression or rebellion. Here one can expect to see self-destructive behaviours such as binge drinking and/or drug use, self-denigrating exploration into sexuality, an inability to focus/concentrate, or to see a future full of possibility; plus all forms of illegal behaviours can be added here.
It must be said that there is no blame or judgment towards any parent. Parents are encouraged to acknowledge the past and the present, not so they become better people, but rather they find more effective ways to have loving and supportive relationships; with themselves, their partner's, children, family, friends and associates.
Incorporating Chinese Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture, Chinese Medical Psychology, & Compassionate Inquiry, guidance pre-conception to adolescence.
One limitation of Ancestral and Societal belief structures, is that they become fixed as the personality. Each person subsequently identifies with, and attaches to the belief structures that have been implanted upon them as if this is 'Who they are' in their entirety. This could not be further from the truth.
There is an aspect known very well in Classical Chinese Medicine, called the Yuan Shen, translated as 'the authentic self'. The authentic self is always available and is able to act independently of the survival adaptations of childhood experiences showing up, or being 'triggered' in adult life.
The authentic nature is 'buried' beneath what has been 'implanted', hence the exploration of self-awareness in part involves practices to re-connect with the authentic self.
Implanted also implies that the developed physiology and anatomy of the child, coupled with the adaptive responses, or survival mechanisms 'rooted' deep in the 'Limbic system' of the brain, are 'STILL RULING' the physical body, emotional expression, and mental belief structures of the adult, and these dictate exactly how the world appears through perception.
All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players:
they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts
There are parts that are liked in the personality, and also parts that are disliked. For example a person may like the fact that they are kind and giving of their time, whilst there may also exist a part that gets emotionally upset because of not having enough time for themselves; the first part gets appreciation, while the other gets suppressed, banished, or even punished. The battle described here is common to all as each person, according to their particular ancestral and societal belief structures strives to be 'something different', to be 'something more'. Chasing this direction of 'being more' is perhaps one of the greatest mistakes of modern psychology/psychiatry.
The pathway to 'liberating' oneself from limiting beliefs, to becoming aware of controlling reactive defense mechanisms, is integration. A lack of integration, when taken to the extreme, reveals a multitude of chronic diseases, such as cancer, MS, Crohn's, ALS, etc, etc.
In Classical Chinese Medicine, integration is the key to living with vitality, the key to rejuvenation, the key to longevity, the key to peace and serenity, the key to harmonious interactions of all kinds. It is perhaps the greatest gift that Classical Chinese Medicine has to offer to the world of healthcare, is this understanding of integration. Integration is often referred to as 'Unification', the ability of the human body to recharge itself during rest, to repair itself from injury, and to absorb the nutrients it is fed.
Classical Chinese Medicine works always to support integration/unification, because of this, and with correct treatment, there are no side effects. The very 'evidence' of a correct treatment is 'improvement without side effects'. This is not to say that Acupuncture or herbs or psychological interventions that are incorrect will not cause any side-effects, of course they will. What it does mean is that effective medicine is meant to make you feel better, it is not considered acceptable treatment to create 'other' complications.
For example medicines that 'Kill', such as chemotherapy, are very primitive in their approach and signal a lack of understanding as to what integration/unification is. Make sure, that if your having medical treatments, perhaps consuming pharmaceutical medicines everyday, and you still feel lousy, then question the validity of the belief structure of this medical approach.
Thankfully, the liberation from limitation is a life-long adventure, it is never too early, nor too late to dedicate some time and thinking to the notion of 'Liberation', to contemplate the 'origins' of the belief structures held dearly and followed implicitly. What are the roots of these structures? Where did they start? How did they develop? How are they enforced?, etc.
The liberation of Humanity, (beginning with self), from the tyranny of mechanisms that have produced a society so incredibly stressed and isolated, is, in the opinion of Integral Freedom and Foundational Family Dynamics, a fundamental necessity in all personal, communal, societal, and global decisions, both in the present and the future.

What to expect in your Online Optimum Wellness Coaching Free session: We have a conversation, simple as that, nothing too heavy, just an opportunity for me to get to know you and find out what it is you want to look at and resolve. During this conversation, we'll work out the origin of the issue, then come up with a few solutions which can be integrated gently into daily life. No radical changes, no miracle cures (except perhaps with Balance Method Acupuncture & pain reduction, some people have called this miraculous), no medications, unless you are wanting herbs; some would call herbs medication, personally, I like to think of herbs as highly specific nutritional support.
