Instant Paralysis

By Atom Bergstrom

Marty and Linda introduced me to a couple who were house-sitting.

It was a sunny Sedona morning, and we all had coffee together.

The wife (let’s call her June) was a recent caregiver to a well-known Sedona guru before he died.

June asked me what I did for a living, and I told her I traveled around the country teaching body language.

“What kind of body language?” June asked.

I explained the concepts of MIND HACKING, though it was more than two decades before I gave it that name.

I told her a pain is always associated with a shock in the mind, and so forth.

“What if you have a pain from playing a musical instrument? My left arm often hurts because I play the bass fiddle.”

I was duly caffeinated, so I was intently observing her body language. “It’s possible, but in your case it’s not. If you give me permission, I’ll tell you what your trauma is.”

“Sure, tell me,” she said. By that time, June’s husband thought I was a kook and left the room.

“Let me ask you a crazy question. What color do you think of when you think of the pain in your arm?” I asked.

“Black,” she said.

“You have a death imprint from the death of your father.”

“Oh, my God!” she said. “I can’t move my arm. It’s paralyzed!”

I realized I’d pushed her too far, so I offered to work with her.


June lay on her back on the carpet, and I did figure-eights with her feet.

“I know what the trauma is!” she exclaimed.

“It’s not the trauma,” I said.

“How do you know?” she asked.

“There’s no reaction. It can’t be the reason.”

“Now I know what the trauma is,” June said after another few minutes.

“This is not it either. There’s no movement whatsoever.”

A few minutes later, her LEFT leg stiffened up like a two-by-four. Before she could say anything, I said, “THIS is the trauma.”

“Yes, it is,” she said with anger, “My Dad didn’t take care of himself. The [bleep] ate, drank, and smoked himself to death, and I had to be there for all that time to take care of him!”

June’s arm came back to life immediately.

    MIND HACKING is Contact Mind Reading.

    Psychosomatic issues (not psychological issues) are the main obstacles to wellness and longevity.

    The essence is to live a FULFILLING LIFE. Otherwise, how do we explain those who don’t eat well and live so doggone long? …

    Norman Lloyd (106), Charlie Munger (98), Henry Kissinger (98), Jimmy Carter (97), Dick Van Dyke (96), Mel Brooks (95), Rosalynn Carter (94), Noam Chomsky (93), Warren Buffett (91), etc.

    Re: Still don’t know how to do it [MIND HACKING] to myself even though I read the book.

    Who are you doing it with? It’s virtually impossible to do by yourself.

    One person doing the tango is not the tango.

    Type 1 diabetes requires SUCROSE … and CLOSELY GUIDED SUPERVISION.

    The technique was pioneered by Dr. Pierre Adolphe Piorry in France and Dr. William Budd in Britain.

      How about for type II diabetes?

        I’m personally seen it resolved by a wholesome diet, by eating a minimum of processed foods.

    Lots of anger stores in the jaw, but other things too.

    Writing slang dictionaries, I found things like, “Don’t get tight jaws over it,” “That jacks my jaws,” etc.

    Sugar works to protect the teeth after a meal because it makes most people drool alkaline saliva.

    Or a pinch of cayenne usually brings on a flood of saliva.

    Exception to the rule: Some people DON’T HAVE alkaline saliva.

    Baking soda — even if you spit it out — will interfere with stomach digestion.

    Hi Atom

    Unrelated to this subject, but where can one find a blotting toothbrush? It seems that the factory that manufactured them, stopped. Impossible to find online, sold out everywhere. Where to find some? Alternative toothbrushes to use?

    Much appreciated

      Maybe Price-Pottenger will get some more in stock? Otherwise, a thinner regular toothbrush will partially work, but the original is UNPOLISHED, which is important. I’ll see if I can track down another source.

    Hi Atom, what causes a woman to sweat too much?


    • April 25, 2022 @ 2:20 pm Atom

      Sometimes it’s caused by the parasympathetic nervous system infringing on the sympathetic system’s responsibilities.

      If it’s “hot flash” sweating, it’s often associated with excess estrogen and a low thyroid function.
