    Ouch, I got neg repped for this comment and I was being completely honest.

    I really do go out and talk to trees when I'm trying to get in tune with myself. I've mentioned that before on this forum.

    From what I can tell already, neg rep is what people use when they are too cowardly to confront you directly.

    For me the things that reconnect and inspire me are:

    - Sitting by the sea. Just sitting, as close to the waves as I can get, usually on an old log. There's something about the rhythm of the surf that is like a heartbeat, or breathing. I wonder if it's the closest simulation of the womb we have once we are 'out.' Anyway, it slows my heartbeat, slows my breathing, slows my thoughts. It's vastness reminds me of both my smallness and my significance, it's consistency gives me hope. I always leave better off than I was when I arrived.

    - Walking in nature. It's not just the green beauty around me. There is something about walking a path arched with trees that portends mystery and 'the great unknown' to me... what's around that next bend up ahead? It fills me with a sense of creative anticipation. It's also the rhythm of movement, of steady walking*.

    - I do like the poems of ee cummings and Rumi. Both of them seem to put me into a transcendent zone.

    - I love watching art shows: "Voices and Visions" about poets, "Egg the art show" when it was on, "Simon Shauma's The Power of Art", "Art of the Western World" when it was on, and currently: "Art in the 21st Century." There is something about hearing about the creative development, practice, and discipline of other artists that inspires me.

    Oops, one more:

    - Dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, and to a much lesser extent small children. These playful critters instantly connect me to my childlike self, the one which is full of optimism, play, openhearted acceptance, and joy. I need at least a weekly dose to keep me going. We have none of these ourselves, so I do have to make an effort to make this connection. I will say that cuddling with my partner will suffice in a pinch.

    Anii. interesting that you should bring up anxiety and alternating left-right pattern of touch, tapping etc. I have an anxiety disorder that has been greatly relieve by seeing someone who uses this method, just in the last 2 weeks he has helped me so much. I feel like I'm getting back to my old self.

    If you are recalling a traumatic event, I heard that closing your eyes and moving your eyes left and right, back and forth, helps.

    helps to avoid it or helps to recall it?

    It helps to lessen the emotional impact of the memory as a trigger. So that the next time you are confronted by a trigger, it has less effect on your stress response system. Usually, a trigger in PTSD will set off a whole series of physical/emotional/behavioral events, which cause significant social or emotional distress.
