Creating Waves of Awareness
Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders
1. The person experienced, witnessed or was confronted with an event that involved actual or threatened death or serious injury, or a threat to the physical integrity of others.
2. The person's response involved intense fear, helplessness or horror. Note: In children, this may be expressed instead by disorganized or agitated behavior.
B. The traumatic event is persistently re-experienced in one (or more) of the following ways:
1. Recurrent and intrusive distressing recollections of the event, including images, thoughts or perceptions. Note: In young children, repetitive play may occur in which themes or aspects of the trauma are expressed.
2.Recurrent distressing dreams of the event. Note: In children, there may be frightening dreams without recognizable content.
3. Acting or feeling as if the traumatic event were recurring (includes a sense of reliving the experience, illusions, hallucinations and dissociative flashback episodes, including those that occur on awakening or when intoxicated). Note: In young children, trauma-specific reenactment may occur.
4. Intense psychological distress at exposure to internal or external cues that symbolize or resemble an aspect of the traumatic event.
5. Physiological reactivity on exposure to internal or external cues that symbolize or resemble an aspect of the traumatic event.
C. Persistent avoidance of stimuli associated with the trauma and numbing of general responsiveness (not present before the trauma), as indicated by three (or more) of the following:
1. Efforts to avoid thoughts, feelings or conversations associated with the trauma
2. Efforts to avoid activities, places or people that arouse recollections of the trauma
3. Inability to recall an important aspect of the trauma
4. Markedly diminished interest or participation in significant activities
5. Feeling of detachment or estrangement from others
6. Restricted range of affect (e.g., does not expect to have a career, marriage, children or a normal life span)
D. Persistent symptoms of increased arousal (not present before the trauma) as indicated by two (or more) of the following:
1. Difficulty falling or staying asleep
2. Irritability or outbursts of anger
3. Difficulty concentrating
4. Hyper vigilance
5. Exaggerated startle response
E. Duration of the disturbance (symptoms in Criteria B, C and D) is more than 1 month.
F. The disturbance causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational or other important areas of functioning.
Acute: if the duration of the symptoms is less than 3 months.
Chronic: if the duration of symptoms is 3 months or more.
With Delayed Onset: if the onset of symptoms is at least 6 months after the stressor.
Noble Gases, Imponderables & Mammals. Homeopathy in the Periodic Table - 15 CD's Bhawisha Joshi / Shachindra Joshi
Play length: ca. 16 hrs 29 mins
15 CDs in decorative case
The whole universe follows certain rhythms and patterns: This fundamental premise is the base of Drs. Bhawisha & Shachindra Joshis' worldwide famous homeopathic research and practical approach. Both lecturers, who play an important role in the further development of the "sensation method" ("Bombay group" around Rajan Sankaran) are convinced that these patterns can also be found and used in homeopathy. Their systematic perspective opens up new possibilities of bringing a steadily increasing amount of remedies, symptoms (rubrics), themes and characteristics into a better comprehensible order.
The structure of the periodic table creates a natural base for all kingdoms (minerals, plants, animals and nosodes) and serves as a perfect matrix. From this matrix individually most appropriate homeopathic remedies can be deduced. The matrix helps to identify individual similarities for the practical work with patients, by examining patterns of the patient's (and remedy's) attitudes, behavior and appearance.

Astronomers observed the flare in ultraviolet light using NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer, and in optical light using the Pan-STARRS1 telescope on Mount Haleakala, Hawaii. The light comes from gas falling into the black hole, and glowing helium from the star's helium-rich gas expelled from the system. Sometimes persons who experience PTSD and depression feel as it they have fallen into a black hole.
Some Black Hole Rubrics
Anxiety: with fear
Concentration: attempting to concentrate; on vacant feeling during conversation
Delusion: the world is doomed
Delusion: separated, is in space
Quiet: wants to be
Several thousand light-years away, near the "heart" of Cygnus, the swan, constellation two stars are locked in a gravitational embrace. One star is a blue supergiant. The other star is 5 to 10 times the mass of the Sun, but it's extremely small.
As the two stars orbit each other once every 5-6 days, this compact star’s gravitational pull causes the blue supergiant to "bulge" toward it. In profile, the supergiant would resemble an egg, with the small end aimed at the compact star. This compact object with a tremendous gravitational pull is now widely agreed to be a Black Hole.
This system is called Cygnus X-1, because it was the first source of X-rays discovered in the constellation Cygnus. Discovered by a satellite in the early 1970s, it was also one of the first suspected black holes. It then became the subject of a friendly scientific wager between physicists Stephen Hawking and Kip Thorne in 1974, with Hawking betting that it was not a black hole. He conceded the bet in 1990 after observational data had strengthened the case for its designation as a Black Hole.
Detecting a Black Hole
Black holes don't give off light, so we can't just look for them. (Theme: Unseen) However, astronomers can find black holes and neutron stars by observing the gravitational effects on other objects nearby.
Astronomers can discover some black holes because they are sources of x-rays. The intense gravity from a black hole or a neutron star will pull in dust particles from a surrounding cloud of dust or a nearby star. As the particles speed up and heat up, they emit x-rays. So the x-rays don't come directly from the black hole, but from its effect on the dust around it. Although x-rays don't penetrate our atmosphere, astronomers use satellites to observe x-ray sources in the sky.
News and revisions about our understanding of the Black Hole
The cross marks the location of the black hole Cygnus X-1 in this radio image. The bright region to the left (east) of the black hole is a dense cloud of gas existing in the space between the stars, the interstellar medium. The action of the jet from Cygnus A huge invisible bubble surrounds a well-studied black hole, scientists have just learned. The cavity is carved from space by the activity of the black hole itself and was detected with a radio telescope. Other space bubbles have been spotted, excavated by exploded stars and by supermassive black holes that anchor entire galaxies. The most recent discovery is unique because it involves a stellar black hole, one that resulted from the collapse of a dead star here in our Milky Way. The bubble is formed by a jet of material streaming from the black hole at very high speeds.
