Had to look up CM.
The new age community is what it is.
Regardless of all that stuff, I would like to see correct acknowledgement of CFS within it. If they can recognise and label a snotty nose, a cut to the hand, a giggle, a bruise to the leg, they can learn to recognise CFS.
Its cause is not because the personality is always being serious. Not really wanting to do stuff. Being bad at relaxation and meditation. Trying out too many therapies and reading self help books. Self destruction. Worry learned from Mother. Trauma of not having people just be with you when upset as a child, or severe conditional parental love at the extreme end of the scale as a child. Only given for being good and doing. And no TS did not suddenly come down with CF just listening to this woman. How insulting (but common).
TS has just been published at the hay house - The Completion Process. Newer version of Louise Hay? In this video she criticises the woman for having self help books in her house. When she says she just reads TS now, TS tells her to throw them away too because we (people with CFS) would use the completion process incorrectly to destroy ourselves. (good built in reason for the completion process not working for those with CF - we would do it wrong. And yet there is nothing wrong with us).
I don't know if the two women with CFS on stage are part of the "Teal Tribe". The woman is certainly in awe of her.
She has 333,592 subscribers on her you tube channel, a forum and dedicated community. She trains and certifies therapists. I don't think she has any psych qualifications, but I do not rate them either, personally. She is a Mum of one I think.
I find some of her ideas pioneering. She calls out a lot of the BS in spiritual communities eg: on energy vampires, on the law of attraction. But often replaces rubbish with fresh rubbish. I started a thread on her video F*ck the law of attraction.
The CFS spiritual community still has fear of energy vampires, of not being positive enough, fear of allowing people to express themselves as they are and how they like, and these are all helpful steps forward to release. What a sentence that is.
I did like her bit on accepting that its ok to feel like shit, sharing that you feel like shit, talk about your problems to people without fearing that you will bring them down, or without fearing repercussions, of being changed, of being authentic in order to connect. However people are not open. People really don't want to hear. And most people have no idea of how to hold a space for you in unconditional love. So it leads to frustration, anger and all sorts. Just because all those people turn up to a show about peoples problems doesn't mean that they do that in life. I think doing this is called being a "mood hoover", or a "drainbow".
She would be speaking far differently if she had contracted and endured CFS herself. She appears completely ignorant of the disease process and here she is trying to nudge the woman out of it.
Maybe this disease is something she may research better and have a re-think about.
