Praise for 
The Myth of Normal

“In The Myth of Normal, Gabor Maté takes us on an epic journey of discovery about how our emotional well-being and our social connectivity (in short, how we live) are intimately intertwined with health, disease, and addictions. Chronic mental and physical illnesses may not be separate and distinct diseases but intricate, multilayered processes that reflect (mal)adaptations to the cultural context that we live in and the values we live by. This riveting and beautifully written tale has profound implications for all of our lives, including the practice of medicine and mental health.”

—Bessel A. van der Kolk, MD, president, Trauma Research Foundation, professor of psychiatry, Boston University School of Medicine, and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma

“Gabor and Daniel Maté have created a magnificent resource for us all in The Myth of Normal, a powerful, in-depth, science-packed, inspiring story–filled opus that helps us see how stress within our culture shapes our well-being in all its facets. By carefully reviewing medical and mental health through a wide lens of inquiry, they challenge simplistic views of disease and disorder to offer instead a wider perspective on human flourishing that has direct implications for how we live individually, at home, and as a larger human family. A thorough and inspiring work of the heart, this book urges us to question our assumptions and think deeply about who we are and how we can live more fully and freely, harnessing the power of the mind to bring healing and wholeness into our shared lives on Earth.”

—Daniel J. Siegel, MD, clinical professor, UCLA School of Medicine, executive director, Mindsight Institute, and New York Times bestselling author of IntraConnected: MWe (Me We) as the Integration of Self, Identity, and Belonging

“Wise, sophisticated, rigorous, and creative: an intellectual and compassionate investigation of who we are and who we may become. Essential reading for anyone with a past and a future.”

—Tara Westover, New York Times bestselling author of Educated

“Gabor and Daniel Maté have delivered a book in which readers can seek refuge and solace during moments of profound personal and social crisis. The Myth of Normal is an essential compass during disorienting times.”

—Esther Perel, psychotherapist, author, and host of Where Should We Begin?

“Gabor Maté articulates bluntly, brilliantly, and passionately what all of us instinctively know but none of us really want to face: The entire social construct of the world we’re living in is deeply flawed, with toxicities on every level. Yet though the book makes clear what’s so terribly wrong, it also points to how we can make it right. Maté is a guide through the dangerous forest of our minds and our society, not letting us ignore the darkness but ultimately showing us the light. The Myth of Normal is exactly what we need.”

—Marianne Williamson, New York Times bestselling author of A Return to Love


The Myth of Normal is an astonishing achievement, epic in scope and yet profoundly down- to-earth and practical. I believe it will open the gates to a new time when we come to understand that our emotions, culture, bodies, and spirits are not separate, and wellness can only come about if we treat the whole being. I will read this book again and again.”

—V (formerly Eve Ensler), author of The Vagina Monologues and The Apology

The Myth of Normal may forever change the way you view your life experiences and how they can shape your biology. But more important, Gabor Maté points us to a path of desperately needed communal healing.”

—Elissa Epel, PhD, professor, University of California, San Francisco, and co-author of the bestseller The Telomere Effect

“In this brilliant, compelling, and groundbreaking book, Gabor Maté unveils the societal trance that has blinded us to the death grip of pervasive trauma in our world. He shows that this is not our personal trauma. It is sourced in a culture that undermines meeting our basic needs for connection, authenticity, and meaning. Drawing on his decades of pioneering clinical work, fascinating contemporary science, and contemplative wisdom, Maté offers us a way to bring clear seeing and a greatness of heart to the crisis of our times.”

—Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance and Radical Compassion

“Gabor and Daniel Maté offer a powerful and surprising redemptive path out of the toxic illusion of ‘normalcy.’ This remarkable and revolutionary book will profoundly impact the well-being of self, society, and our earth at a time when wisdom and compassion are essential for our common survival.”

—Reverend Joan Jiko Halifax, abbot, Upaya Zen Center

“At a time when so many of us are struggling physically and psychically, Gabor Maté’s The Myth of Normal is a godsend, providing wisdom and realistic hope. Maté is a revolutionary thinker and gifted writer whose work has always inspired me. The Myth of Normal is no exception. It’s no exaggeration to say that this groundbreaking book can help us heal as individuals, families, and a society.”

—David Sheff, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Beautiful Boy

“As if Gabor Maté hasn’t done enough already by depathologizing addiction, autoimmune diseases, and ADHD, now, in this magnum opus, he challenges us to expand our minds even further. In The Myth of Normal, he asserts that those problems, and the many other social ills that plague us, are not only related to the traumas we’ve suffered but are also symptoms of the toxic nature of our materialistic, isolating, patriarchal, and racist culture. What’s remarkable about this beautifully written book is not just that he makes that bold contention, but how well he backs it up with an amazing amount of scientific research, compelling stories of his patients, and moving disclosures from his own life. Our culture is indeed very sick and I don’t know of a better diagnostician of and physician for it than Gabor Maté. This book contains a prescription that, if we have the courage to follow it, will heal us all.”

—Richard Schwartz, PhD, creator of the Internal Family Systems model of psychotherapy

The Myth of Normal is a book literally everyone will be enriched by—a wise, profound, and healing work that is the culmination of Dr. Maté’s many years of deep and painfully accumulated wisdom.”

—Johann Hari, New York Times bestselling author of Stolen Focus

“This gripping book builds upon two key truths for our time—that everything is connected, including psychic wounds and physical illnesses, and that these are not anomalies but ordinary, even epidemic, in the society we’ve built. The Myth of Normal is a powerful call for change in how we live with, love, understand, treat, and think about one another, by someone ideally situated to map the terrain and to give us some valuable tools with which to navigate it.”

—Rebecca Solnit, author of Men Explain Things to Me

“In this wide-ranging and beautifully written book, Gabor Maté and his co-writer son Daniel offer an acute diagnosis of what ails our culture and a blueprint for personal healing, while pointing the way to what is required to create a more hospitable, human-friendly world for ourselves and our children.”

—Dr. Shefali, New York Times bestselling author and clinical psychologist

“Gabor Maté’s latest book is a guide to self-awareness, social insight, and healing that is deeply personal and utterly transparent. Written with fluid, crystalline prose, profound wisdom, great humor, and hard-won humility, it merits becoming this generation’s The Road Less Traveled. In my two-word summation, The Myth of Normal is Fiercely Tender.”

—William M. Watson, SJ, DMin, president and founder, Sacred Story Institute

The Myth of Normal is a detailed and wide-ranging look at what we all need to know—but all too often fail to live up to—when it comes to human health, sanity, maturation, and happiness. It’s also a clear-eyed examination of the benefits, triumphs, limitations, and blind spots of our health and mental health care system.”

—Resmaa Menakem, bestselling author of My Grandmother’s Hands, The Quaking of America, and Monsters in Love

The Myth of Normal is a tour de force journey into the dissonant experience of being human in our aberrant and toxic modern culture. The journey is both heartrending and exalted in its underlying purpose—to heal the rift from our authentic selves and the collective trauma that stifles our natural expression and joy. If you are ready to do the brave and life-shaking work of examining the truth of your life and the culture that we are literally in the death grips of—this is your read.”

—Rachel Carlton Abrams, MD, MHS, ABoIM

The Myth of Normal presents a unique perspective in viewing what we see as ‘normal’ and opens up a way to wake up to what is real and authentic in our lives. Gabor and Daniel Maté have written a compelling book that will challenge your views and help lift the veil of illusion to what is truly happening in your mind and in your body.”

—Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness

“With rigorous research and painstaking detail, this book by esteemed physician Gabor Maté is a tour de force manifesto of how trauma impacts not just our individual bodies and psyches but our whole society. The Myth of Normal plants seeds for revitalizing what we consider ‘normal’ and giving ourselves permission to say no to what is making us unnecessarily sick.”

—Lissa Rankin, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Mind Over Medicine and Sacred Medicine

“This, Gabor Maté’s magnum opus, is essential reading for us all. A genius writer, he gives it to us straight: From the mindbody to the body politic, we learn how loss of authenticity takes its toll psychologically, physically, spiritually, and socially.”

—Julie Holland, MD, author of Good Chemistry: The Science of Connection, from Soul to Psychedelics

“Every once in a rare while a book comes along creating a new vision of the world, illuminating for us that which until now has been invisible, yet as vital to our health and well- being as water is to fish, oxygen is for our bodies, and love is for our souls. This work is such a tour de force, a humbling and brilliantly written exposition of what deeper healing requires.”

—Jeffrey D. Rediger, MD, MDiv, assistant professor, Harvard Medical School, and author of Cured: Strengthen Your Immune System and Heal Your Life

“Gabor Mate is brilliant and passionate, tender and fierce, writing with an urgent honesty. His analysis is comprehensive and penetrating, combining deep scholarship, hard-earned clinical wisdom, personal trauma, and practical suggestions. This is a masterwork that reads like an intelligent thriller, highlighting our challenges with dramatic clarity while showing the way to their solutions. A must-have book for anyone interested in their own mind, in how our world got so crazy, and in the better future we can forge together.”

—Rick Hanson, PhD, author of Resilient: How to Grow an Unshakable Core of Calm, Strength, and Happiness

BEHAVIOUR DEVELOPMENT


WE SHARE ONE

LIFE

WE ARE NOT SEPARATE

FROM

NATURE.



Upon birth these new born precious tender bodies are hyper sensitive to each
And all aspects of nervous sensations.


Responding to 

TOUCH, SIGHT, SOUND, SMELL, TASTE

WITH 
SPECIAL HYPER SENSITIVITY  
TO
ALL IMMEDIATE RADIATED ENVIRONMENTAL ENERGY.

(TO ANY POSSIBLE OR EVEN PERCEIVED SENSE OF DANGER)

CONSTANTLY & ACTIVELY SOURCING REASSURANCE

FOR LIFE'S OWN SAFE SURVIVAL.

Absolutely any SHOCK experienced by the nervous system to any of these senses
Is & are instantly recorded by the unconscious yet 

IMPLICIT MIND 

Stored as cellular memory through out the entire body.

Such memory then carries forward specific behaviour characteristics to ensure
That the discomfort of the experience
Is not to be repeated.

Establishing the condition generally referred to as 

DENIAL

Where the individual instantly responds to any heightend emotional sensational 
By adopting some form or method of 
AVOIDANT BEHAVIOUR.

So we learn that any trauma maybe a possible underlying cause
Of eratic behaviour break out.

Most individuals, &  especially men have been raised to suppress their emotions 
Crying was for weak characters
Ok for Girls & Sissies
But not for big brave Boys.

Patriarchal abuse and denial has left man in a totally 
UNKIND
MIND STATE
Where we have unintentionally & unconsciously created & allowed ourselves to be 

Captutred and Enslaved 
Into a Insatiable  
Materialistic Machine of Endless Consumption.

This powerful psychological illness of self delusion
Leaves many people experiencing a sense of

Eternal Inadequacy,

Of
NEVER BEING ENOUGH.

Ever Wanting
& so
Ever Disappointed

In all aspects of life.


Upon the self recognition & Identification of our own early experiences of

SEPARATION & OR ABANDONMENT


We are then able to recognise and identify the consequential development of our
 

OWN BEHAVIOUR TRAITS

Which has or have repeatedly caused us concern, distress

Emotional Pain & Discomfort.

Neurodivergent
People think
DIFFERENTLY
To
NEUROTYPICAL.
Neurotypical 

Neurotypical is a descriptor that refers to someone who has the brain functions, behaviors, and processing considered
standard or typical.
Neurotypical people may have no idea they are because the subject has likely never come up for them before.
These people usually hit all of their developmental and behavioral milestones at the same times and ages that are
considered standard for most people.
Once grown, they generally move through life without having to wonder if their brains function in the same way as others do.

Neurodivergent 

Neurodivergence is the term for people whose brains function differently in one or more ways than is considered
standard or typical.
There are many different ways that neurodivergence manifests, ranging from very mild ways that most people would
never notice to more obvious ways that lead to a person behaving differently than is standard in our society.
We'll examine the most common types of neurodivergence and the ways they manifest ahead.

From here we simply become over performers or under achievers and accept the
Altered Ego, Personality Creation,
As our over ruling instructor.

Avoidant adopted, behaviours  
Utilise learned attention seeking forms of traumatically activated behaviours to survive.

None of which are real.
NO
WE are not our EGO.
WE ARE 
LIFE.

Being scarred and shamed under such circumstances where we are told
Scorned or intimated that we are dumb,
Stupid, no good, hopeless,
Will never succeed, will never be loved, or be love able, are fat, ugly, lazy,
Irresponsible, a failure,
A waste of peoples time, bad and horrid,
The struggling wounded child simply gets to hear and believe
 Vile shaming condemnation


From such toxic condemnation a recurring characteristic self attitude is adopted. 
One which too often apologises, self blames,
Remaining ever wary of accepting or trusting emotionally positive
Sensate compliments. 


Of course over exuberant praise,
With gushing complimentary acknowledgement
May also produce an inflated
Alter Ego, Personality
Which may also generate insatiable and equally paralysing expectations 
Driven by endless success and achievement to avoid
Dreadful fear loaded,
Inflicted shame and embarrasment of 
FAILURE.
Oh no!
With to be expected & imagined
"Crash and burn" consequences.
From those
Recurring expectation with over reaching fear driven anticipation of failure.

"Never being enough".

As fragile, tender, adoptive minds we unconsciously  
Form this ALTER EGO to be who we are. 
Repiticous thoughts continue to mould, reinforce and confirm this self assuring
Alter- Ego, Personal Real "I" ity.
Alter Ego becomes the dominant aspect of our belief system from where  
Failure or glory maybe progressively trained, educated and reassured.

This is how it happens.
WE LOOSE SIGHT OF THE REAL SELF

LIFE

WE ARE NOT OUR QUALIFICATIONS
NOR ARE WE
OUR ENVIRONMENTALLY CLONED
EGO.

All shapes, methods and styles of exposed, adopted, INDOCTRINATION contribute to this ever,
Over ruling, self possessed cognitive delusion which permeates and create "pockets"
of confirming attitudes within individuals which then radiate into the immediate
environment of relationships, family, and widely across society.

DEVELOPMENT OF DIVISIVE ATTITUDE.
 Tolerance and intolerance

Many examples of these "pockets" are evident today where narrow Alter Ego
minded judgement exposes varying degrees of tolerance and intolerance to hard held
socially developed predjudice dominated behaviour be they based in
Devisive Racial,
Religious, Political, Material, Social, Colour or Cultural status.

None of which are real.
Yet again it is Alter Ego at work.

Well documented Religious,
Political, Racial Indoctrination and predjudices are
First and foremost examples of these often radical, divisive,
Culturally developed ideologies,
Which maybe further exemplified through out and across
International cultures
Where homophobic, ethnic, and racial beliefs have seen mass annilation
To the extremities of war with its destructive violence and perverse attitudinal
Vested, Power driven domination.

None of these beliefs are real. 
But a depraved Alter Ego at work some more.

All avenues of escapism be they  
Sport, Sex, Sewing, Swimming, Surfing, Skiing
or

 Slavery  
Are effective forms of Self Deluding escapism from our

DUCKS OF HIGHER ORDER.

THIS LITTLE
PHDUCK. 
Has been pecking away at ethical order and natural human decency for the past 42 years since Bankers were allowed to unapologetically screw the fully loaded market with high interest rates back in the 1980s.

This journey occurred following a disaterous and extremely disappointing experience with the former leader of the National Party Ian Sinclair who announced in the company of Ralph Hunt, then Minister for Gwyder and Wal Murray then leader of the National party in NSW following his Sydney office instructions to three of us who had travelled to his sydney office following a well attended meeting of concerned citizens held at Jerilderie also attended by guests, the late Rick Farley CEO for the National Farmers Federation & well know agricultural lobbist Neil Innall. 

"Get out there in the bush and tell the electorate to write to me and I will take your complaints to the Bankers and see what we can do to address the crippling interest rates that we know are paralising the national rural community". 

Well weeks later as a delegate representing Riverina whilst attending the annual Conference of the National Party, being held at the Rex Hotel in Canberra where I had spent the day watching in sheer inexperienced amazement as state representatives bartered and traded favours, deals and questionable price negotiated agreements. 
All a daunting realisation and exposure to the behind the scenes inner sanctum of political stakes, beneficiaries and policy makers.

At the bar with above mentioned "Big Wigs" after the days trading I asked Ian Sinclair if our endless efforts across the country had created any effective impact and if people had made contact with his office.

"You must have been busy, I was swamped"

"Great so what are you going to do with the the banks"?

Was my naively reply?
 
Only to be told;
"Rod you and I both know we cannot do anything about the banks".

That was the day I discovered politics, hammered my glass on the bar & left forever. 
That was the day.

HERMETIC PRINCIPLES
SINCERE RESPECT WITH FULL ACKNOWLEDGEMENT TOSpirituality & Relationships Writer Sarah Regan

The 7 Hermetic Principles & How To Use Them To Improve Your Life
Many have sought to understand the natural laws that govern our universe.
Some say there are 12, while others, like Hermes Trismegistus, say there are seven.
Trismegistus explains the foundational laws of our reality in his seven hermetic principles.

Here's what these principles are all about and how we can all use them as a source
of inspiration and empowerment.
What are the 7 hermetic principles, and where did they come from?

The seven principles are the foundation of Hermeticism, a branch of spiritual philosophy
dating back as early as the first century A.D.
They were outlined by famed author Hermes Trismegistus, who is believed to have
written the Emerald Tablet and the Corpus Hermeticum (two highly influential,
ancient teachings). His work would go on to influence both ancient Greek and
Egyptian cultures, with both adopting him as a god of wisdom.
(In Greece he was called Hermes; in Egypt, Thoth.)
He was known in his time as a great master of the universe and is said to have lived
for thousands of years.
Over time, the seven hermetic principles were passed down by word-of-mouth from teacher
to student, and eventually, one day in the early 20th century, the teachings were compiled
into a book called The Kybalion, written by "The Three Initiates."

Today, they remain an occult source of wisdom, separate from any real religion but
powerful nonetheless. And while the seven principles are just one way of understanding
the universe, they aren't so constricting that they cannot be studied alongside other
spiritual philosophies.

Here's what each of the seven principles is all about:

1. The principle of mentalism.

"The All is Mind; the Universe is Mental." —The Kybalion

The principle of mentalism states that the universe is akin to a mental projection.
This is like manifestation 101, which is all about using your thoughts to shape your reality.
For anything to be, a thought must precede it.
Through this principle, it's believed that God is consciousness, or thought, and the universe
is a manifestation of the mind of God.
Using this law, we, too, can harness the power of our minds to create the life we want.

How to apply it:

Consider the initial thought that led you to be able to read this, on whatever device
you're on. Or even the thought that is most influencing your mood right now.
When we recognize how much our thoughts manifest every day, whether internally
as a physiological or emotional state, or externally, as the things we do or places we go,
we see that when we can control our mind, we control our lives.
We can get better at this through spiritual practices such as meditation, which help us
train the mind.

2. The principle of correspondence.
"As above, so below; as below, so above." —The Kybalion

We've all heard this quote before, but maybe you never knew it was Hermes who first
coined it.
It's closely related to the first principle of mentalism and states that what we hold
in our thoughts and mind will become our reality.
It explains the many planes of existence, including those of lower and higher
vibrational frequencies and how they're connected.

How to apply it:
Applying this law is all about understanding your connection to the world around you and
how you're showing up for yourself and the universe through your thoughts, and
subsequently, your actions. When we have a firm grasp on how we're interacting with
life and how it's affecting us, we can recognize and break patterns, live in alignment
with our highest good, and feel harmonious with everything there is.

3. The principle of vibration.

"Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates." —The Kybalion

Yes, believe it or not, the idea of "vibes" has been around a long, long time.
The principle of vibration states that all things, both physical matter and spiritual energy,
hold a certain vibration.
Basic science tells us atoms are in constant motion, as is the universe itself.
Even our hearts, as they beat, give off different vibrations depending on our emotional
state. And when we're "vibing high," we're able to avoid low-level frequencies that
don't serve us.

How to apply it:
This will look different for everyone, but to apply this third principle, you want to not only
do things but think thoughts that allow you to be in a state of ease, where your body
is "vibrating" at a more positive level.
Applying the first two principles can help you start to do this. (You might be noticing
all of these principles are deeply interwoven.)
With this principle, we acknowledge that we have the power to control our vibration
rather than our vibration controlling us.

4. The principle of polarity.

"Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites;
like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature but different
in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled."
—The Kybalion


The principle of polarity explains that seemingly opposite things are actually one and the
same at varying degrees.
A simple example of this is hot and cold.
Cold is just the absence of heat, and they're both one thing: temperature.
Physical matter and spiritual energy are the same thing, with spiritual energy vibrating
at a much higher level, such that it can't be perceived by our senses.
Love and hate are two ways of experiencing the same thing, a relationship toward
something. This is the foundation of alchemy, or the ability to "transmute" your
experiences at will.

How to apply it:
Applying the principle of polarity takes a degree of mental stamina and involves
shifting the way you look at something, potentially completely on its head.
Take the hate you may feel for someone: Is there any way you can shift it to feelings
of love, for example?
Any time a lower vibrational emotion is bringing you down, can you recognise it, feel it,
and transmute it to a more positive one?

5. The principle of rhythm.

"Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall;
the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the
right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates." —The Kybalion


Closely related to the principle of polarity, the fifth principle states that between the
opposing poles, there exists an inherent rhythm. The tides move in and out.
We inhale and exhale. Everything is in motion. Nature has its seasons and so, too, do we.
Understanding this principle allows us to recognize our life's—and the universe's—
natural rhythms, so we can actually work with them rather than having them working
against us.

How to apply it:

Know that nothing lasts forever, and things are ever-changing. As you get deeper into
working with this law, you'll be able to work with your own emotional states to
avoid a dramatic pendulum swing of feelings. It's thought that eventually the master
will be able to completely transcend duality, but if you're just getting started, try
becoming more aware of your emotional state and using polarity (No. 4) and rhythm
to start getting more comfortable with the natural fluxes of your life.

6. The principle of cause and effect.

"Every cause has its effect; every effect has its cause; everything happens according
to law; chance is but a name for law not recognized; there are many planes of causation,
but nothing escapes the law." —The Kybalion


Everything is connected through the principle of cause and effect, for each cause of
one thing is merely the effect of something else, going back to the very beginning.
Ask yourself, are you a cause? Or are you an effect?
This principle is all about acknowledging the effects of our thoughts and behavior and
how we may change them to bring about greater effects.

How to apply it:

When something doesn't go as planned or you find yourself unhappy, ask yourself,
what was the cause? Many times, we find ourselves reacting to the world around us,
trapped in a back-and-forth of reacting to our circumstances rather than forging our
own path.
When we take action to get the effect we want, we move from feeling like a victim to
feeling empowered.

7. The principle of gender.

"Gender is in everything; everything has its masculine and feminine principles;
gender manifests on all planes." —The Kybalion


The seventh principle states that all things have masculine and feminine qualities.
Yes, the two sexes can be thought of as a physical manifestation of this principle,
but as we're all coming to understand, on an internal level, all of us hold both energies.
(Think the left and right brain.)
Masculine and feminine energy exists in not only the physical plane but the mental
and spiritual plane as well. The unity of these two energies is essential for creation,
and when one has a balance of both, they're better able to apply all of the principles
together for maximum benefit.

How to apply it:

Accept all the parts of yourself, and understand that balance in all is key for
self-mastery. Buddha called this the middle way, and it's all about the balance of
masculine and feminine; of heavenly and Earthbound; and of the mind, body, and spirit.
When we can achieve this balance within ourselves, we're well equipped to harness all
of these principles and use them in our lives for good.

If this all sounds like a lot—don't worry. These principles run very, very deep, and it can
take a long time to fully understand and embody them.
Each time you come back to them, you may understand them in a new way, or on a
deeper level.
And in time, these principles can help you master your own mind and your life as a whole.

VINCENT FANTAUZZO
Vincent Fantauzzo: Drawing a life in pictures
Behind the celebrated career of one of Australia's most sought-after portrait painters
is a visual language "superpower" that lifted him out of poverty, one brush stroke at a time.



He has a stylish new art hotel named after him but was once so delinquent
that he carried a gun.
He is friends with a prime minister and world-famous celebrities,
but he left school at 13 barely able to read and write.

He wins national art prizes but was put in special education classes at school.
He is married to the actress Asher Keddie but once failed a simple test to get
a job in a factory.
They seem so glamorous — the famous actress and the acclaimed artist.
A golden couple.
As if life is always easy.

But for Vincent Fantauzzo there was shame, failure, so much struggle when he
was younger.
"I spent my life hiding and hustling, feeling ashamed, not being good enough,
not being smart enough and pretending to be someone I wasn't," he says.












Fantauzzo didn't know why he couldn't read like the other kids at school.
He worked harder than classmates practising his times tables, but couldn't remember them.
He would rather get kicked out of class than stand up and read aloud.

"You distract people and become the funny kid in class or the naughty kid.
I just thought I'm going to be so bad I'll get kicked out of school, and I'll have this reputation and I'll ride with that," he says.

He managed to get through his short time at school without reading one book.

"I honestly felt like I must be stupid. Why is everyone else able to do this and I'm not?," Fantauzzo says.

A photograph of a little boy Fantauzzo says he felt "stupid" as a student and was ignored as he sat in a special needs classroom. )
In fact, Fantauzzo was very far from stupid.
He is a gifted man with great intuition and empathy.
It is just that his brain is wired differently to other people.

It wasn't until Fantauzzo was in his 20s that he was diagnosed with severe dyslexia.

"You can be dyslexic with numbers and you're incredible with words and not numbers —
I got the jackpot, I got all of them," he says.

"And memory is such a big part of how dyslexia affects me."

It's a disability he even managed to hide from his family.

But what Fantauzzo could do was draw.

It was the one thing he could do. It was his way of communicating.

"It's all I've got," he says.

A portrait showing three different faces of actor Heath Ledger A portrait of Heath Ledger titled 'Heath' won the People's Choice in the 2008 Archibald Prize. 


'I met my person'
From the time Fantauzzo was a tiny child he would draw animals and cartoons.
He drew on everything.

"He did a lot of cartoons," his mother Rosaleen says.

"He would always draw murals on his walls and make it like you're looking into a castle or looking out of a wall."

Because it came so naturally, his art gave him a feeling of confidence.

"This was something I could do right," Fantauzzo says.
One enlightened teacher let him draw caricatures of the teachers.

He would become a portrait artist known for his 
award-winning portraits of people like actors Heath Ledger and Guy Pearce, chef Matt Moran and director Baz Luhrmann.

Love face: Vincent Fantauzzo's entry in the Archibald Prize 2013. Vincent Fantauzzo's entry in the 2013 Archibald Prize, Love Face, features Asher Keddie. 


Fantauzzo gets close, into the psyche of the people he paints.
But it was his soulful 
painting of Keddie that would change his life.

His memory problems stemming from his dyslexia make punctuality problematic. And because of this, he nearly missed his first meeting with Keddie.

He had asked his friend Moran if he knew the "hot" girl on TV. He wanted to paint her. She checked out his work and decided that if anyone was going to paint her, it would be him.

But Fantauzzo was characteristically late to the first meeting and Keddie wasn't going to hang around — she was busy filming for the television program Offspring and just wanted to get home to the country to her horses.

But as she was walking away, she spotted Fantauzzo.

"I saw this really kind of chaotic, crazy, incredibly gorgeous guy," Keddie says.

"I was walking towards him and I absolutely felt connected on a level I'd never felt connected to anybody in my life.

"No words had been spoken, nothing. I was just drawn to him and I could feel the same coming from him."

Fantauzzo agrees.

"I had just met my person. We were pretty much together after that."

The pair married in April 2014. Fantauzzo already had a son, Luca, now aged 9, from an earlier marriage. Together they have Valentino, aged 4.

But he still hid the extent of his disability from her, and there were times early on when she thought it was because he didn't care enough. Why didn't he come to meet her at the airport?

"He was trying to manage it himself and falling short. I started really demanding the truth, I suppose," Keddie says.

"There were times when I felt I don't know who you are because you are not letting me see you. So, I pushed pretty hard, which was uncomfortable for him and uncomfortable for me.

"Once I understood that memory is a genuine issue for him, I just started to let it go myself and my frustration started to dissipate."

Fantauzzo admits: "I'll go to the supermarket and buy beans instead of tomatoes, you lose everything, you forget everything.
I have locked her out, lost my keys, taken her laptop instead of mine.
"I don't know what month comes next. I don't know what season is next.
I'd have to go through it.
"Even if you give me a letter in the alphabet, I can't tell you the letter after it unless I sing the whole song.
"Keddie began to understand Fantauzzo's dyslexia could be his strength.
"He is so competent at so many things that I am not," she says.

"He has an extraordinary way of thinking and delivering in life. I'm kind of envious of it in a way.
I look at him and I think, 'God, you just think about things in a way that my brain doesn't'.

"I find that fascinating.
Funnily enough, the solutions he comes to and the problem-solving is really accomplished.

"Fantauzzo's dyslexia is something Keddie learnt to adapt to.
She has five schedules around the house, the studio, the car.
"Everywhere you can think of:, to then start to read them is another challenge for him," she says.
"And as simple as I can make it, it's painful for him.
"For his part, he feels accepted by Keddie "and loved for who I am".
"She doesn't want me to be anyone else and I don't want her to be anyone else".

'Unless I hustle, I won't get through life'

Fantauzzo grew up in and around Broadmeadows and Glenroy, the rougher suburbs
of north Melbourne. One of five children in a series of tiny two-bedroom commission
houses, his mother slept on a sofa by the front door.

His Irish mother had met his Italian father at an immigration camp at Broadmeadows.
After his parents split, his mother Rosaleen worked hard to support the family.

"I'd go to school in a better neighbourhood and I would have hand-me-down shoes
from my mum that had pink stripes, so I'd colour them blue," Fantauzzo says.

"You'd go to friend's houses and they would have two bathrooms and a table that they had dinner at, and we couldn't even fit a table in the house," he says.

"Never mind five of us trying to use a bathroom that wouldn't work properly."

There weren't many opportunities for someone like Fantauzzo.
He was as hard worker, could do anything with his hands, but wasn't able to do
anything that involved paperwork.

Vincent Fantauzzo Vincent Fantauzzo (centre blue shirt) in his younger years. He worked as a printer, painter, concreter. He ran his own dry-cleaning business.
"I was so bored I was drawing all day long and people would come in and see my
drawings and be much more interested in the drawings than the dry-cleaning," he says.

Fantauzzo's lowest ebb was applying for a menial packing job at a factory.
He failed a simple written test repeatedly.
"I thought to myself, just quietly, unless I hustle and do something really dodgy,
how am I going to get through life?," Fantauzzo says.

"The dream of being successful is a dream that I can't reach unless I'm a criminal."
And there was plenty of opportunity for that in the world he lived in.

Frustrated and angry, he got into fights. "I tried to be this tough guy that people
wouldn't mess with.
When you grow up in these areas, who do you look up to? Gangsters and drug dealers," Fantauzzo says.
"There are 100 stories of the kind of things that happened. Bats, skateboards, knives;
like, all of that happened.
"He found the gun in a couch he was moving for some gangsters.
"I took the gun home and I kept it for years — so people knew I carried a gun."
But he adds quickly, "I never shot anyone".

"I did a lot of bad stuff that I regret so much.
And I think about gangs and kids doing bad stuff and I think,
all they need is a little bit of confidence," he says.


Fantauzzo was always interested in boxing and martial arts.
"That kept me off drugs," he says.
Legendary boxing trainer Jack Rennie let him train in his backyard gym for free
if he cleaned the place.
He became a mentor and guide and one of the first to recognise Fantauzzo's talent for art.
By his early 20s, Fantauzzo was drawing portraits of famous sports people and selling
them to make a living.
"He was painting for 12 hours a night," friend Matt Phillios says.

He once drove to Donald Bradman's house in Adelaide to show him a painting.
The cricket great gave him permission to make prints.










Fantauzzo forged his name on someone else's school results and scammed his way into university.
He worked hard but had to pay people to do his essays at RMIT.
He was caught, confessed, and was finally diagnosed with dyslexia.

The news broke his heart and left him angry that he had to find out
he had a learning disability as an adult.


"There was also relief that I'm not stupid" 
"I actually have something wrong with me," Fantauzzo says.


"It was about getting over the shame and humiliation I had carried my whole life."

RMIT helped him with disability liaison support so he could dictate his exams and essays.
He finished something for the first time in his life and would eventually
gain a masters degree.

Fantauzzo's visual language 'superpower'

No-one told Fantauzzo that there can be great gifts that come with being dyslexic.

"I see all these incredibly successful dyslexic people, and I've found my own gifts
within dyslexia. I'm lucky I have a creative gift that I've been able to embrace," he says.

Fantauzzo brings the empathy of someone who has struggled through hard times
to the people he meets and paints.

"He is very vulnerable, a lot of his life has been spent hiding," Keddie says.
"Yet he seeks the truth in his art and in his relationships."

Says his mother Rosaleen:
"He gets right into their psyche, and into their minds and he will be their friend forever."

Fantauzzo says he was always drawn to paint the human face.
His astounding portrait of Ledger was painted in the weeks before the actor's death and was runner-up in the Archibald Prize.




He 
painted Moran in a cool room surrounded by carcasses.

"He actually needs to hang out with that person and feel what they're like before
he can paint them," Moran says.

Fantauzzo suggested Baz Lurhmann go on a big motorbiking adventure around India. Lurhmann said "f**k it" and went.

Baz Luhrmann 'off Screen', by artist Vincent FantauzzoBaz Luhrmann 'Off Screen', by Vincent Fantauzzo —
winner of the 2011 Doug Moran National Portrait Prize. 

The portrait, Baz in an unglamorous moment of exhausted vulnerability with his head in his hands, won the Moran Portrait Prize in 2011.

"He wants to capture the struggle in people, that perhaps speaks to himself as well and what he knows to be true," Keddie says.

"He likes to see as many layers to someone as he can, so the painting speaks of story and history; he's interested in what makes up their world."

When Fantauzzo's painting of Julia Gillard was unveiled at Parliament House, there was, says Gillard "an audible intake of breath, as the audience looked at it".

"I think he's captured a look in my eyes, which is about leadership, and about strength but with some ambiguity in it," she says.

An exterior at sunset of a building with the name The Fantauzzo From a tumultuous childhood to a prestigious namesake hotel,
Vincent Fantauzzo has come a long way. 


When the Art Series Hotels named the newly opened Fantauzzo hotel at Howard Smith Wharves in Brisbane after him, and he found out that it would be filled with his paintings,
he couldn't believe it.

Keddie then discovered that her husband had kept no records of any of his work
over 25 years.

"She had to find out where the paintings had gone, who owned them,
what had happened to them," Fantauzzo says.

"It was a huge job, at the end of which she fired herself.
She said she would never do it again."

The night the hotel opened Keddie looked up at the neon sign.

"I said, 'Just stop. Just stop".
"Look at me.'

It said The Fantauzzo.
I said "can you even believe it?

This is a combination of all your hard work, and your perseverance,
just take a breath right now and enjoy it, just for a moment."

In a life that has been about overcoming so many odds, Fantauzzo can now joke about it.

"I definitely feel that dyslexia is a superpower,
and I'm sorry for all you people that don't have it."

REJECTION SENSITIVE DYSPHORIA
THANKS ONCE AGAIN TO PSYCHOLOGY TODAY

emotional-pain-1
 Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria
How to overcome the pain of criticism and finally feel good enough.
THE BASICS
It is Not only People who are diagnosed ADHD and ADD
That are exposed to this rather cruel heightened condition
Of emotional sensitivity to
ANY
Forms of or Perceived
Moments of CRITICISM,
Be they REAL or IMAGINED 


KEY POINTS

  • Rejection sensitivity dysphoria (RSD) is a common modern day psychological condition co-existing with the awakening studies of ADHD.
  • Those with RSD are extremely sensitive to criticism, often holding on to negative words or actions made towards them for months, or even years.
  • An ADHD-RSD combination is difficult to overcome, but some strategies include focusing on one's strengths and practicing self-compassion.

  • Do you ever feel so devastated by the criticism from a friend, teacher, boss, relative, or co-worker that you keep repeating what they said to you over and over? Is it really tough for you to rebound after feeling left out by your friends or saying something you regret?

 

Youlike many other emerging adults, may struggle with rejection sensitivity dysphoria.(RSD) is a common condition co-existing with ADHD but not a formal diagnostic category.

Rejection sensitivity dysphoria refers to intense feelings related to the belief that you’ve let other people down, embarrassed yourself, failed at something, or made a serious, unfixable mistake and, as a result, people pull back their support, love, or respect. RSD causes extreme emotional pain that plagues both children and adults — even when no actual rejection has taken place.
People with RSD struggle with letting go of past hurts and/or rejections and experience heightened emotional sensitivity. They may hold onto unkind words or actions directed towards them for months or years.

If you have RSD, you just can’t seem to shake off critical comments from others and believe at some level that you deserve them. You think you’ve fallen short and, with your exquisite sensitivity, no matter what anyone else says, you just can’t bounce back. It’s especially tough to recover from personal criticism or rejection.
Because many older teens and adults with ADHD may already experience a feeling of otherness, they often already feel like they are at a disadvantage and often internalize negative voices. Living daily in this one-down position intensifies RSD and exacerbates shame.

Identifying rejection sensitivity dysphoria

Signs of RSD include:

  • Struggle with low self-worth or self-esteem
  • Easily embarrassed or ashamed
  • Quick to anger or blow up when perceiving a rejection or getting hurt by someone
  • Sets high expectations that are difficult to meet
  • Experiences social anxiety and relationship challenges
  • Sees themselves as a failure when they disappoint others
  • May consider self-harming behaviors
  • Anticipate rejection in new situations
In a society that is overly focused on social media where we can compare ourselves to others 24/7, people with ADHD frequently judge themselves and come up short.
With the ADHD-RSD combination, your negative thinking combines with exquisite sensitivity to make it harder to bounce back and stay resilient.

Reducing the effects of rejection sensitivity dysphoria

Here are five tips to help you work with rejection sensitivity and reduce its tumultuous effects, whether you need a little reassurance or you're helping a friend or loved one who is struggling.

1. Reinforce strengths.

What everyone needs to remember is that simply having RSD does not make you a human who is weak or incapable.
You are just wired to feel things more intensely and replay unpleasant interpersonal interactions over and over.

RSD is linked to social insecurity.

A helpful tip is to consistently nurture your strengths and focus as much as possible on what You love to do and what You do well.
Pay attention to your positive efforts:
Write down three good (or good enough) things that happened each day before bed.
This will help you see things from a new perspective and shift from negative self-talk.

2. QTIP — Quit Taking It Personally!

Many older teens and emerging adults with ADHD struggle to separate when a statement is directed specifically at them or when it's something more general.
You take things personally that may not be personal.


Practice taking a pause before responding to a question or answer by saying:
"That's a good question/comment. Let me think about it."
Or ask for some time after an unpleasant interaction by saying:,
“I’ll get back to you about this.” Then you can better assess what's being said.

Remind yourself that other people can say thoughtless or hurtful things sometimes which are more about them than you.
Consider the source of the statement.
Plus you may perceive a rejection that’s not there or is unintentional.
Check things out before coming to a conclusion, maybe by asking a neutral person if they heard what you did.

INNATE WISDOM WITHIN LIFE.
Understanding sufficiently to actually accept self possession 
To hold response able ownership

Leads to the wonder filled discovery and revelation of

Our Self is the Life and Body 
We have actually Self developed to survive in the wilderness of environment Earth.
OUR SELF IS THE REAL LIFE SELF
NOT 
Who we thought we Were, 
Or think we ARE.
This former Self establishing process occurred in infancy,
Entirely beneath actual conscious awareness.

Conscious Awareness occurs when we 
RE-ALIZE 
LIFE’s WISDOM
Upon this realisation our entire nervous system takes back permission to release previously

Retained energy which has been bodily stored for our individual safety and protection.

Since our first 
NERVOUS SEPARATION

FROM WITHIN LIFE  IT'S  SELF.

The nervous energy previously stored and blocked by self retention now may flow freely for 
Release and often appears through the process of yawning in Counselling sessions.

A Yawn is an energetic release of tiredness formerly mis identified as BOREDOM.
Yawns are Energetic nervous passages to and from the entire body. 

Yawns are regularly substituted by other forms of activated avoidant behaviour.
 
Energy releasing or avoidant behaviours such as Working, golf, sport, movies,
Drinking, laughing, eating, gym, gambling, “internetting”,
Pornography, sex, mastubation,
Sky diving, Mountain biking, thrill seeking adventures, tourism included. 

All Neural transmitting and Adrenaline stimulators.

HOWEVER
Such avoidant behaviour does not address the accumulated stressors and tension.

In fact Work, Alcohol, Drug, Sex or Gambling fuelled 
"BENDERS"
Often leave the individual actually feeling worse Off.
Physically, Spiritually  
Exhausted.
Penniless.  
GUILTY with A SHAME RIDDEN TOXIC HANGOVER.


REALISATION OF SELF LEADS US TO ACTUAL AWARENESS.
FOR
Energetic release of unconsciously withheld DIS- Ease
Of many stored & hurt parts within.
For this latent store of time accumulated energy,  

To take ITS Permission for
Safe formerly unidentified release,

Here Mental Reconnection
Gives meaning & sensed awareness to the discomfort 
As it expresses itself out of the body,

We hear & feel pain as words through recalled stories.
 
Taking passage out of our Auto Nervous body System. 

**REALISATION**
Comparable in kind to the former unconscious retention,

Along with the controlled release of bodily waste.

That Is.
Getting rid of our S*!T.

TRAUMATIC SHOCK CAUSES INSTANT DISCONNECTION 

In this way we somatically  store 

WHAT DID NOT HAPPEN
.
 

A
DREADFUL CELLULAR
UNCONSCIOUS SENSE OF
NEVER GRATIFIED
ACHING EMPTINESS.

The fear of rejection is not unique to the ADD personality—
No single psychological feature of attention deficit disorder is unique. 

Its importance in attention deficit disorder comes from the
Hyperactivity Of temperament
Everyone with ADD was born with.

In the ADD adult, as in the child,
This hypersensitivity magnifies the impact of
Every emotional stimulus. 
ANXIETY LIVES HERE.

The fear of rejection is never far below the surface. 

People with ADD are exquisitely sensitive to the merest hint of "IT",
Even if the hint is only a figment of their fearful imagination. 

"IT" is triggered by any stimulus that ever so vaguely resembles rejection,
Even if no rejection is intended.
 
The trigger can be a wife declining to have sexual intercourse with
her husband on a given night, but it can also be as minor as a glance,
An inadvertent comment or an averted look. 


The ADD adult does not know the difference between refusal and rejection. 
When he hears no from a lover, a friend, an employer,
It’s as if the universe is negating his right to exist.

In the above example, the wife may or may not have rejecting feelings toward her husband, But his implicit memories make it impossible for him to feel anything other than rejection. 
Poor self-regulation also disables him from responding like an adult,
No matter whether his partner feels rejecting or only uninterested.
The emotions associated with implicit memories of feeling rejected may be strong enough to Bring up thoughts of life not being worth living. 

“My husband looks so lost when I say no to him,”
A woman reported during a family therapy session.
“He looks completely defeated and crushed. It makes me feel so guilty.” 

The husband’s response is that of the sensitive infant when the parent is emotionally Unavailable, because for the infant life truly seems impossible without contact with the Nurturing parent. 
The other, the one who did the “rejecting,” is seen and thought of as all-powerful and cruel;
The self is experienced as isolated and helpless, utterly unable to escape from emotional pain. 

One man who felt unwelcome in the marriage bed spoke bitterly of his wife as the ice queen—

By implication, he was the abject underling.
amygdala2
We can recall now that the Orbitofrontal Cortex is also thought to play
A major role in emotional self-regulation.
It helps to inhibit the powerful emotions,
Like fear—and fear’s offspring, Anxiety—

That are generated in the Amygdala and other brain centres below the level of the Cortex. 
As we have seen, in ADD the ability to inhibit powerful emotions is impaired because the connections of the OFC with the lower brain centres did not develop optimally

Just as hypersensitivity magnifies the sense of being rejected,

So deficient self-regulation

Due to impaired inhibition by the Cortex

Exaggerates the response to rejection. 


With this in mind, we can understand what comes next. 

Words

The response of the infant to the fathomless anxiety of physical or emotional separation from the parent is either rage or withdrawal, or a combination of both in sequence. 

"This is how I have many times reacted in similar circumstances." writes Gabor. 

In the second volume of his trilogy on attachment, John Bowlby describes what was observed when ten small children in residential nurseries were reunited with their mothers after separations lasting from twelve days to twenty-one weeks. 

The separations were in every case due to family emergencies and the absence of other caregivers, and in no case due to any intent on the parents’ part to abandon the child.
“On meeting Mother for the first time after the days or weeks away every one of the ten children showed some degree of detachment. 

Two seemed not to recognise Mother. The other eight turned away or even walked away from her. Most of them either cried or came close to tears; a number alternated between a tearful and an expressionless face.” 

After periods of briefer separation the infant around one year of age will exhibit rage.
Bowlby also points out that the parent can be
Physically present but Emotionally absent
Due to stress, anxiety, depression or preoccupation with other matters. 


From the point of view of the infant, it hardly matters.
His encoded reactions will be the same, because for him the real issue is not the parent’s Physical presence but her Emotional Accessibility. 

The withdrawal dynamic has been called defensive detachment by Bowlby. 

It has one meaning:
"So hurtful was it for me to experience your absence
That I will encase myself in a shell of hard emotion,
Impervious to love—and therefore to pain". 


"I never want to feel that hurt again".
 

As a result, ADD adults find it difficult to trust in relationships,
To make themselves truly open and vulnerable. 

Depending on the degree of early sorrow they experienced, the very idea of commitment may make them anxious. Especially men with ADD will, entering deeper into a relationship,
Keep half an eye on possible exits.
“I am always on the lookout for a parachute relationship,” one thirty-year-old man said. 

No matter who his current partner was, he felt safer if he could think of another woman to take her place should the need arise. 

The criticalness toward his partners that "Stephen" experienced once he felt they had
“warmed up” to him was really an expression of his fear of intimacy. 

The other aspect of "Stephen’s" criticality arises from boredom. 

Many adults with ADD report that they quickly become bored with relationships,
As with much else in life. 

They imagine this boredom of theirs to mean that something is lacking in their partner:
The reality is that they are bored with themselves. 

A person not in contact with internal sources of energy and interest in the world
Has to search for outside sources.

Believing that fulfilment can come only from someone else. 

This is the implicitly remembered state of the infant hungry for emotional nourishment,
Lacking the capacity to satisfy his own needs and having to look to the parent. 

The demand placed on the partner in the love relationship is that he or she—the other—
Fills the emptiness within oneself. 

But such nourishment is found only through psychological
And Spiritual growth,
Through self-discovery. 

So long as I expect another person to provide what I am lacking in myself,
I am bound to be disappointed.
The temptation then is to look for another partner,
A new relationship in which, perhaps, I will find what I feel is missing. 
In the absence of personal development this quest is doomed,
As the relationship nomad keeps discovering. 

The fear of intimacy is also a fear of the loss of self. 

There is the well-known paradox that the person with ADD craves real human contact,
feels like an outsider and wishes to belong—
But at the same time is reclusive,
Often preferring his own company to that of others. 

The paradox is due to his oscillating back and forth between two fears:
The anxiety of loneliness and abandonment, and, opposing that,
A parallel sense of danger that if he commits to a relationship,
He will be overwhelmed, swallowed up. 

“It’s only when I am alone that I can really be myself,” said Frank, a fifty-year-old writer who came to see me in the immediate after-math of yet another abortive relationship. 

Such a person is presented with a choice between two alternatives,
neither of which is satisfactory:
One either choses the relationship and gives up the self,
Or
Retains the sense of self but gives up on the relationship—
and, in some cases, on almost all social contact. 

The unsolved problem is how to be oneself in contact with other people

People desperate for a relationship will surrender their sense of self, their true feelings,
For fear of being rejected;
When they have gained the relationship they may pull back,
As "Stephen" repeatedly has, in order to reconnect with that precarious sense of self. 

This dynamic is often seen after the most intimate act of all, sexual intercourse,
When following deep attraction and union,
There is an alienation and a drive to separate which men, particularly, may experience. 

One may be in a long-term relationship, lasting even decades,
Without ever feeling completely committed to it. 

The ambivalence is an intrinsic memory of childhood emotions when a choice had to be made between staying with oneself, with one’s real feelings, and thereby jeopardising the relationship with one’s parent, or going for the relationship, at the cost of suppressing parts of oneself. 

One gauge of persistent problems with intimacy in an ADD relationship is the couple’s sexual life—or the lack of it. “Non-existent” and “What sex life?” are two of the common replies my questioning around this subject tends to bring. 

The lack of sexual intimacy is in most cases an unmistakable sign of mutual emotional shutdown.
Interestingly, I see this not only in families where one of the adult partners has ADD, but also where one or more of the children has it, even if neither parent does. In the latter case, this marker of absent intimacy between the parents speaks volumes about the emotional alienation and tension in the midst of which the child exists. 
Also dampening sexual ardor is the propensity of the ADD adult, the male especially, to behave like an irresponsible child. 

This may lead his spouse to act like his mother—organising his life, taking care of his emotional needs. 

Many a wife of an ADD husband has complained to me of feeling as if she has an extra child in the house—five foot ten, perhaps, balding and with a greying beard. 

Along with that mother role, unfortunately, may come an ever-increasing component of scolding and nagging—which I have heard many a man complain of. The response to feeling that another person is trying to control him—even if it’s a spouse, and even if she has legitimate reasons to be anxious—is to resist. 

Counterwill, described in chapter 20, mostly in regard to children and teenagers, is also a major dynamic shaping the responses of the ADD adult. 

It is a powerful factor in the ADD relationship. The couple find themselves chronically caught in the dense shrubbery of anxiety, control, resistance and oppositionality. One of the problems with such a mother/son relationship is, of course, that no mother in her right mind wants to sleep with her son; nor do reasonably healthy men fancy going to bed with their mothers. 

I have frequently advised couples that if they truly want adult intimacy, they mutually need to give up the parent/child roles toward each other. “People gravitate toward their emotional mirror images,” Michael Kerr points out. 

It is well recognised now that people will form relationships with others exactly at the same level of psychological development and self-acceptance as their own. “People tend to sort themselves by levels of emotional development for many purposes, not just marriage,” writes Stanley Greenspan, “because those functioning at different levels are practically speaking different languages… 

People widely separated developmentally in fact have very little to talk about.” 

What we might call the law of equal development holds true even if the partners themselves buy into the mythology that one of them is more emotionally mature than the other. 

Such an illusion may be created because one may seem to be functioning in the world more successfully than the other. Usually it is women with ADD who tell me that their husbands are better adjusted than they are. By certain criteria, it may seem so. The man may be working, be earning a good income and have much more confidence than his wife when it comes to worldly affairs. 

When such a relationship is examined, it becomes apparent that though the financially rewarding work is being done by the husband, the invisible division of labor charges the wife with all the emotional responsibility. 

Not only is she the linchpin holding the family’s emotional life together, but she also has the secret and mutually unconscious assignment of absorbing her husband’s anxieties, protecting his fragile ego, enabling him to function in the belief that his strength is purely intrinsic to him. 

His anxiety can be noticed, however, as soon as she becomes unavailable, for whatever reason. 
The cause can be something as minor as a three-day flu. Many wives report their husbands to be unaccountably tense and sullenly unhelpful whenever they are ill, which signifies the man’s anxiety—his implicit memory of finding his mother, or perhaps father, inaccessible. 
An individual with ADD choosing a partner on the same plane of psychological growth as herself is unavoidable. 

Since ADD by definition implies underdeveloped emotional intelligence, any such relationship, also by definition, will begin with two people who have both been stuck at fairly early stages of emotional development. 

Although, as with every other aspect of ADD, there will be a broad range of variation, no ADD relationship will avoid the problems arising from the mutual lack of maturity. 

By maturity, I mean here the degree of individuation, the capacity of the person to genuinely sustain herself emotionally during difficult times without having to be mothered or fathered by someone else. 
I interpose genuinely because many people pretend to themselves and to others that they are capable of taking care of themselves emotionally, but they do so only at the cost of suppressing their anxiety. The buried anxiety will not be denied but will assert itself in the form of psychological symptoms or direct physical illness. 

Another rule with almost no exceptions is that our choice of relationship partners is patterned on our interactions with our parental caregivers. This is so even if it may appear superficially that the differences far outweigh any possible resemblance. “Many people have a hard time accepting the idea that they have searched for partners who resembled their caretakers,” writes the family therapist and educator Harville Hendrix. 

“On a conscious level, they were looking for people with only positive traits—people who were, among other things, kind, loving, good looking, intelligent, and creative… But, no matter what their conscious intentions, most people are attracted to mates who have their caretakers’ positive and negative traits, and, typically, the negative traits are more influential.” 

In neurophysiological terms, our choice of mate reflects the early relationship patterns stamped in the neural circuits of the right prefrontal cortex, especially its orbitofrontal portion. The OFC will recognize and hone in on some-one who, on the unconscious level, activates its familiar reactions. This person, after all, will most resemble the persons whose love one so desperately craved all one’s life. 

We are inexorably drawn to marry the individual who is, of all potential partners, the very one most likely to trigger in us the most painful and confusing of implicit memories—as well as the warmest, happiest ones. 

Relationships have to change if one is to create the conditions for growth. “I must be a very strong person,” Jennifer, a thirty-three-year-old woman with attention deficit disorder said to me. 

“I must be, otherwise I could not have put up with what I have had to in my marriage.” Her husband was well-meaning but domineering, emotionally absent and completely closed to getting any joint Counseling or therapy. She felt very alone. I agreed that she had a lot of strength to carry on under such circumstances, holding down a job and taking the main responsibility of raising their children, one of whom has fairly marked ADD. 

She also exhibited emotional strength in recognising, unlike her husband, that she needed help. 

There is, however, an important and oft-overlooked difference between being strong and being powerful. 

Strength is an inner quality; power is a matter of relationship. I may have strength, yet at the same time I may be powerful in one relationship and utterly powerless in another. 

“Which partner in a marriage has to ‘put up’ with stuff?” I said. 

“The less or the more powerful one?” Jennifer’s willingness to accept an unfairly heavy share of the burden was, as always, a reenactment of her childhood status in her family of origin. 

As long as she continued to shoulder those burdens unquestioningly, she could make little headway toward her goal of development and the diminishing of her ADD patterns. 

One of the most perplexing problems for the non-ADD partner is what John Ratey has called “the ahistorical memory” of the ADD mind. 

In other words, the ADD adult (and also of course the ADD child) functions at times as if previous events, even the most recent ones, had never taken place. 

Your ADD partner may have insulted you the night before but this morning greets you with a warm smile, the offer of a hug and the expectation of warm reciprocal contact. 

You are in absolutely no mood, the wounds of the previous night still being fresh. 

You refuse, predictably stimulating in your partner the rage-or-withdrawal response to feeling rejected. Another aspect of ahistorical memory is its either-or nature. 

When, for example, a person recalls the good times in a relationship, it is almost as if nothing bad had ever happened. 

Unfortunately, the reverse is also true: when one is remembering the bad,
The good may as well not have occurred. 

The feeling of the moment dominates the memory. 

In this regard, the ADD mind is much like a television screen: you can’t have two channels on at the same time; when one has been selected, the other is inaccessible. This trait is characteristic of the all-or-nothing mind states of young children and is another marker of incomplete development in the adult.

Of course, the neurological impairments of ADD also impose some extra nuisance. 

It is difficult to live with a partner who may be messy and disorganized, does not remember promises, tunes out in the middle of conversations, forgets events and anniversaries, has a short fuse and in moments of crisis may lack self-insight. 

But all that adds up to only a thimbleful of trouble when compared with the turmoil brought to the relationship by the anxiety and pain stored in the implicit memory circuits of the ADD brain.

With absolute and sincere thanks, gratitude and appreciation we offer total recognition to Gabor Mate and his writing of Scattered Minds from which we have taken these pieces from Chapter 27.

SPIRIT & EGO
According to the late  Dr. Wayne Dyer, the original story was told by Henri J. W. Nouwen.

It goes like this…

spirit-ego-1
In a Mother’s womb were two babies.
One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?”
The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery.
Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”

“Nonsense,” said the first. “There is no life after delivery".
"What kind of life would that be?”

The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here".
"Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths".
"Maybe we will have other senses that we can’t understand now.”

The first replied, “That is absurd".
"Walking is impossible. And eating with our mouths? Ridiculous" !
"The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we need".
"But the umbilical cord is so short".
"Life after delivery is to be logically excluded.”

The second insisted, “Well I think there is something and maybe
It’s different than it is here.
Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.”

The first replied, “Nonsense.
And moreover, if there is life, then why has no one ever come back from there?
Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery,
There is nothing but darkness and silence and oblivion.
It takes us nowhere.”

“Well, I don’t know,” said the second,
“But certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.”

The first replied “Mother? You actually believe in Mother?
That’s laughable.
If Mother exists then where is She now?”

The second said,
“She is all around us.
We are surrounded by her.
We are of Her.
It is in Her that we live.
Without Her, this world would not and could not exist.”

Said the first: “Well I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t exist.”

To which the second replied,
“Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus and listen,
You can perceive Her presence, and you can hear Her loving voice,
Calling down from above.”

?

Dr Wayne Dyer calls these two babies “Spirit” and “Ego.”

REFLEXES
Baby Mother
Reflexes exist to keep us safe. 

Essentially, they represent nervous system reactions caused by physical stimulation of the Body’s receptors. 
These responses occur without conscious cortical control.
Refer to the IMPLICIT mind.

Many other automatic functions in the body are essential, such as maintaining blood sugar levels and digesting food. We need them throughout life for survival.

In contrast, the primitive baby reflexes, usually referred to as Infant Reflexes or Primitive Reflexes are required to maintain the correct position in utero, help progress and turning during a vaginal birth and aid survival in very early childhood. 

In a newborn they train the bladder and bowel to function automatically.
Provide the first breath of life and assist feeding. 

The Infant reflexes are not needed in later childhood and adulthood and their persistence can hinder the child’s brain development and can be a major contributor to physical, intellectual, emotional, behavioural and social problems. 

In children with Developmental Delay these persisting reflexes have a wide range of effects.

Pregnancy

FertilisationFertilisation
pregnancy
Most Infant Reflexes are present before birth and the earliest one,
The Fear Paralysis Reflex, develops at 5 to 8 weeks of pregnancy. 
Most Mothers-to-be don’t even know they are pregnant at this stage.
As early as the 5th week of pregnancy,
The first infant reflex develops to protect your baby.
Throughout the pregnancy your baby continues to develop further reflexes
That will influence the position during the pregnancy,
Help the birth process and support survival,
Starting with taking the first breath.
However, in some cases, these reflexes may not emerge.

Foetus

Birth


Your baby assists in the birth process with automatic pushing, turning and wriggling movements that aid progress towards the outside world.
These movements are generated by particular automatic inborn infant reflexes.
They help to position the baby and enable the birth to progress through the different stages.

As mentioned above, these reflexes are progressively integrated following a natural birth, but this process may not occur when the progress down the birth canal is missing or modified.

Baby’s first year

Baby1yr
What are Infant Reflexes
These are reflexes relating to the very early stage of human development and are unconditioned and in-born, most developing in utero.
The baby doesn’t learn these reflexes. They simply develop naturally during the pregnancy. 

Many infant reflexes assist in the birth process, most are protective and some are present to establish bodily functions necessary for survival.

For example, the two Spinal Infant Reflexes, Spinal Pereze and Spinal Galant,
are stimulated by touch to the back.

Root ReflexRoot reflex.
This reflex begins when the corner of the baby's mouth is stroked or touched. The baby will turn his or her head and open the mouth to follow and "root" in the direction of the stroking. This helps the baby find the breast or bottle to begin feeding.

The root reflex lasts until about 4 months of age; then it is replaced by voluntary turning of the head to the nipple.

Suck Reflex.
Suck reflex
The sucking reflex, like rooting, is an automatic survival action.  Rooting actually helps the baby become ready to suck. When the roof of the baby's mouth is touched, the baby will begin to suck. This reflex begins at about the 32nd week of pregnancy and is not fully developed until about 36 weeks’ gestational age. Hence, premature babies may have a weak or immature ability to suck.


Babies also have a hand-to-mouth reflex that goes with rooting and sucking and may suck on fingers or hands. Sometimes the fetus can be seen sucking his or her thumb on a prenatal ultrasound.

Moro Reflex

Moro reflex.
The Moro reflex is often called a startle reflex because it usually occurs when a baby is startled by a loud sound or movement. In response to the sound, the baby throws back his or her head, extends out the arms and legs, cries, then pulls the arms and legs back in toward the body. Even a baby’s own cry can trigger this startle reflex. This reflex lasts until 2 months of age.








Grasp Reflex
Stroking the palm of a baby's handcauses the baby to close his or her fingers in a grasp.
It is a strong reflex & is an even firmer grip in premature babies. The grasp reflexlast 5 to 6 months.
Grasp reflex.

During the birth process they help the baby wriggle down the birth canal during contractions and also empty the baby’s bladder to rid the body of waste.
This automatic response assists the birth and promotes normal functioning of the baby’s bladder and bowel.
Having served their purpose during the natural birth and in early life, the reflexes are no longer required and they become progressively inactivated by a process of maturation leading to reflex integration.

However, if these Spinal Infant Reflexes are not stimulated during birth and subsequently inactivated, they can result in later difficulties, for example with attention, sitting still and/or bedwetting, soiling and other far-reaching problems.
Baby Prone
Such difficulties may be related to birth by Caesarian section (in which the baby does not experience passage down the birth canal), a breech birth (which provides stimulation in reverse), or a fast last-stage or assisted birth (ventouse or forceps) that may not provide the time or stimulus for the natural processes to complete.

This is just one example of how the incomplete maturation of Infant Reflexes can affect the older child in many ways.

If this Infant Reflex Integration process is incomplete, the functioning of the brain can be affected.
The Central Nervous System (CNS) may then be unable to function efficiently in various ways, potentially influencing the whole child, physically, socially, emotionally, behaviourally and/or intellectually, depending on the nature and extent of non-integration.
 
Although each reflex has particular influences on physical, emotional, social and educational areas, their combination can multiply the effects.
A complex reflex profile can produce wide ranging difficulties.
Children with cerebral palsy or other difficulties involving gait (walking) may benefit from working on the integration of additional infant reflexes beyond the twelve key ones.
 
This is the period of time when most of the infant reflexes integrate.
This means that the reflexes become less dominant and are progressively replaced by conscious movements.
During the first year of life, babies would naturally lie flat on their tummies as well as their backs and move freely. 
They need to be held, moving with the adult, developing sensory skills relating to touch, balance and proprioception, as well as emotional attachment.
They also need to move freely, lying flat for sufficient time, until they are able to sit themselves up. There are many intermediate developmental movements to learn on the way from lying to standing! 
Practice and repetition of these is an important factor in developing the learning pathways in the brain.
As babies experience their environment in this way, at their own pace, they are able to make the movements that help the infant reflexes to be replaced by conscious control.
 
Often, this is not fully achieved and problems emerge.
This may occur, for example, through inactivity in a fixed position, such as long periods spent in inclined seats, rather than lying and moving freely on a horizontal surface.

The integration stages of several Infant Reflexes rely on the baby being held and moved in relation to gravity, lying prone (on the front) and horizontally with freedom to move. Government guidelines issued in the UK and USA regarding the sleeping position of babies have encouraged parents to sleep babies on their backs. However, it is important that babies also spend time on their fronts. 
One important infant reflex is integrated by movement in this position.
 
Subsequent development and postural reflexes;
As the child’s Infant Reflexes become integrated, postural reflexes begin to emerge.
If the Infant Reflexes do not integrate, then postural reflexes will be negatively affected.
Most postural reflexes are life-long and are necessary for controlled, co-ordinated, fluid movement in response to gravity and the maintenance of balance.
In typical development they are in place by 3-4 years, with some variation.

One example of a postural reflex is the head-righting reflex.
As the body moves one way the head is automatically held in an upright position to maintain balance.
This begins to develop as the baby lies prone at approximately 16 weeks, lifting the head, so that the face is in a vertical position.
Baby head-righting
The head righting reflex in action
 
Complex difficulties
Frequently the consequence from the lack of sincere loving attention.
Hence the rising recognition and incidents of Attention Defecit Children & their hyper activity. 

Many children find learning difficult, or have difficulty concentrating, comprehending, making friends, being motivated or being still.
For example, one child may have problems sitting still in relation to specific reflexes.
They may also dislike labels on clothing, tight belts and have difficulties with urine control. 
Another may show aggression, fear or low self esteem relating to a different reflex.
Yet another may have problems with balance and co -ordination or have difficulties with communication.
The involvement of a group of reflexes may present as a more complex difficulty with varying severity. 
A child in this situation may be struggling at a low level with many aspects of life or may have been given a diagnosis such as Autistic Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, language or behavioural difficulties. 

All the behaviours associated with these labels arise from the way in which the brain functions oblivious to the unresolved accumulated toxic energy which the implicit life component of the individual has unwittingly had stowed away to avoid the momentary discomfort of any and all avenues of SEPARATION.

AMYDGALIA DEVELOPMENT.
 
Neural groove closing to neural tube, early week 4 

Neural development is one of the earliest systems to begin and the last to be completed after birth.
This development generates the most complex structure within the embryo and the long time period of development means in 
utero insult during pregnancy
May have consequences to development of the nervous system.

The early central nervous system begins as a simple neural plate that folds to form a groove then tube,
Open initially at each end.
Failure of these opening to close contributes a major class of neural abnormalities (neural tube defects).

Within the neural tube stem cells generate the 2 major classes of cells that make the Majority of the nervous system :
Neurons and Glia.
Both these classes of cells differentiate into many different types generated with Highly specialized functions and shapes.
This section covers the establishment of neural populations, the inductive influences of surrounding tissues and the sequential generation of neurons establishing the layered structure seen in the brain and spinal cord.

Neural development beginnings quite early, therefore also look at notes covering
Week 3- neural tube and Week 4-early nervous system.

Development of the neural crest and sensory systems (hearing/vision/smell) are only Introduced in these notes.

IMPLICIT LOVE
Born from human Genome of DNA & all the evolved developmental "attachments" 
Humans have grown to consider ourselves Superior in intellect to Primates.
However we also know that many aspects of Psychological & Physiological development

Continued to be held & carried foward since time,
In & with DNA.

Of the most significant components in this evolutionary development is the innate desire and 
Insatiable drive to 
STAY ALIVE.
This critical innate component of survival is the soul bed of our endless need for 
ATTACHMENT

Along with its collaborating sense 
TO 
SEPARATION.

Of movement from the time we discover & learn to 
Lift our head, roll over, sit up, crawl, stand, walk, run, jump, skip and hop.
Born with highly sensitive emotional & Life survival visual wisdom.

During this period our brain begins experiening the cognitively developing memory,

Mean time Life being incredibly brilliant of itself keeps our "wits about" 
With all of our Senses on alert 
Life's safe existing assurance tools.

So sensitive is the tender new born
The very first experience of
IMPLICIT CELLULAR RECORDED SCARRING 

May Occur Instantly
When the infant experiences the
Shock
OF DISCONNECTION AT BIRTH.

Terrifying Abandonment
Is Implicitly taken in & remembered cellularly
by 
LIFE ITSELF.
 Forever becoming a cellular memory to be eternally avoided. 

Situations as simple as 
A Nursing Mother Abruptly averting her 
LIFE CONNECTING VIZUAL GAZE. 
Maybe sufficient to contact or establish this IMPLICIT sensitivity.

The ever vigilant Tender New Born 
Takes in
Any exposure to any sensory experienced 
SHOCK. 


Life being so incredibly brilliant of itself 
Keeps an "Eye & Ear out" for emotional safety.

Owing to any felt sense or experience of disconnection & separation
A memory of inner sensitive avoidance of discomfort is activated as cellular memory.
Here untold pain maybe progressively accumulated.
~~~~~~~~~ 

Accumulated beyond conscious awareness.
Self created inner sensory Vigilance activates pre ordained separation
TO BE AVOIDED.

In readyness to avoid contact with the inborne residual discomfort.

Residual discomfort which habitually activates our unconscious avoidance drivers 
 
Leading us to seek relational comforting connection.

Endlessly

DRIVING OUR SENSORY DESIRE FOR ATTACHMENT.

Or to temptation of Endlessly promoted & advertised
COMPULSIVE AVOIDANT 
SELF DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOURS.

Drugs, Alcohol, Sex, Gambling, Shopping, Sport, Friends etc. 
(Including Compulsive obscessive gaming media)
ALL
Dopamin activating Excitement


Any possible sense of separation from Life received by body senses 
Is instantly & painfully recorded.
(Including the loss or failure of a mobile phone)
POTENTIALLY
AS LIFE THREATENING SEPARATION.


This memory is instantly burned & communicated 
SOMATICALLY 
Through the Poly Vagal Nervous System

Into & across the entire nervous system of the tender Infant.
Such unwelcome sensations remain active indefinitely. 

To which our being establishes a Permanent State
Of Unconscious 
Active Avoidant Vigilance .......

All creatures know and have experienced this Life born sensation. 
Readily observed in abused & neglected

Taken from
Science from the article suggest a partial explanation with the following:
"Getting insights into neuroplasticity during early visual learning in these highly visually guided navigators moves us a big step forwards in the understanding of how visual information is encoded and learned for spatial behaviour.
What’s more, it shows beautifully how the finely tuned interactions between brain, environment, and behaviour are responsible for the bootstrapping of the navigational systems of these prodigious foragers".
***********************************

THE SENSITIVITY OF HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS.

In Body Sensitive Psychotherapy 
We understand there is much more to energetic radiation.
For healing therapy to be effective  
Client and Counsellor need to merge this energetic radiation
Of each other to a natural harmonious state.
Interlinking the energetic circles.

We name this place 
"Loving presence".
Effectively merging our sensory radiation.

Plasma-lamp 2
What's Is Matter:

Observations from daily living with loving appreciation for life in all of
Natures' inclusive wisdom have delivered us genuine sensory awareness to an energy  
Infinite radiatiation.
Assembly of energy which forms to become "matter".
It is the ability of retaining this innate sense of recognition
To all aspects of
Visible and invisible radiation
Across the universe.
Which all creatures great and small use to live by.
It's how tiny Ants find the sugar & Bees pollinate flowers.
And Homing pigeons cover hundreds of miles to their coop.
Meanwhile "White Ants" which are not ants
But are related to the Cockroach family.
White Ants are actually Termites. 
Who find such clever ways to hide whilst they eat our homes.

Termites are very clever in the way they consume this food.
They have a strong aversion to sunlight and prefer humid environments
Termites will typically eat wood, for example, from the inside
Leaving the outside shell to keep them in their
Preferred darkness in a moist surround. 
By their foraging underground, this desire for darkness is satiated
It also means they can travel swiftly,
Silently and undetected to their next source of food.

Comparable behaviour occurs within man kind where the
Termite is IMPLICIT
In similar manner 
Implicit mind works at high speed
Impulses travel in all directions at all times.  
Hidden below and behind consciousness. 

Termites and Blowflies play important roles in nature’s environment
In that they recycle rotten timber and decaying flesh in the wild
Returning valuable nutrients to the soil,
But as forests and wooded areas have cleared,
Termites have found a new food source . . . our homes!

Leunig Crack

Such intuit wisdom has been retained for essential survival by humans, plants and animals Primarily to kept them alive and functional in a world overloaded with competive and suppressive conditioning by predators, the greatest being that of the ever fear filled,
"Would be" dominant species of UNCONSCIOUS MANKIND
Who continues to stagger as voracious Termites across earth's Wilderness
Devouring nature by insatiable consumption.

Life wants us back home with our SELF.

COTYLEDON A PLANT IN MAN
Leunig Crack

Monocot vs dicot crop PengoFollowing on along the organic them about pruning the Tree of Life to reduce old growth and encourage new fruit from Xylem & Phloem and the Poly Vagal Nerve we look further into US via the Veins within the leaves of Man Kind.
Fertilisation
 
 
cotyledon  "seed leaf"  from Greek: is a significant part of the embryo within the seed of a plant, and is defined as "the embryonic leaf in seed-bearing plants, one or more of which are the first to appear from a germinating seed."
The number of cotyledons present is one characteristic used by botanists to classify the flowering plants (angiosperms).

Species with one cotyledon are called monocotyledonous("monocots").

Plants with two embryonic leaves are termed dicotyledonous ("dicots").
In the case of dicot seedlings whose cotyledons are photosynthetic, the cotyledons are functionally similar to leaves.

However, true leaves and cotyledons are developmentally distinct.
Cotyledons are formed during embryogenesis, along with the root and shoot meristems, and are therefore present in the seed prior to germination.
