In this episode, we are exploring the Humans versus tech pre and post lockdown analysis,
are we too reliant on tech?
Have you felt utterly exhausted recently: Stress, Adrenals and Sleep, the Golden Trio.
Spirituality and keeping the light on during dark times.
Since this episode aired, there have been more published studies and articles on something that is being referred to as 'Long Covid'. This term is being used in a healthcare setting to describe people who are exhibiting signs of extreme fatigue, muscular aches and pains, skins rashes and breathing difficulties - whether they've been tested or not and whether they have a diagnosis positive or negative (within the Covid outbreak timeframes).
The BMJ definition in this webinar was stated as thus;
long covid was defined as “not recovering [for] several weeks or months following the start of symptoms that were suggestive of covid, whether you were tested or not.”
"“Profound fatigue” was a common symptom in most people with long covid,"
In light of the discussions in the latest episode of Dimensions And Beyond, we looked at Adrenal Fatigue as one of the primary contenders for some of the extreme fatigue that is being observed in the health store setting where customers are coming in and commenting on how utterly tired they are. It seems obvious to point out that there may be several types of exhaustion profiles out there but 'Long Covid' wasn't in the original line up.
So, I'm adding this in as a possible contender but I have discussed with other professional healthcare providers that the list of symptoms also looks like a breakdown of what we know to be 'Post Viral Fatigue Recovery' which can affect anyone at any time as they recover from a (usually) systemic viral overload on the body (Think Glandular Fever, that can take months to recover and is often extremely exhausting way after the diagnosis and apparent recovery). Keep this in mind as in these current climates, there is a lot of fear, mistrust and misunderstanding in information outlets of all kinds. If you feel utterly exhausted, there may be several factors involved. Either way, all of these fatigue profiles have some form of management strategy and although the road is long, it is a recoverable one.

The Lancet also has an article on this;
Be well, be compassionate to yourself in these chaotic times, focus more on what you love or are grateful for. We're all riding the storm.
The Lockdown Episode..
We're talking about the current push for cashless, looking at predicted scenarios now playing out from a blogger's 'future dreams' and we talk a lot about Comets.. Comet Atlas, Comet Borisov and Comet Panstarrs.. messengers of the gods or all hype?
I had some interesting feedback about the Cashless article, I had believed that I was in a tiny minority in preferring to use cash - I've since discovered that actually, there's a quiet section of the community out there (UK at least) who have also been very affected in finances with the current push towards cashless. I'm going to put the references and links in here and it might be worth your while having a look through this report, it's an intriguing window into some of the financial habits and patterns that are now being subjected to the pressure to 'conform to the new norm'.
"March 2019The Access to Cash Review – Final Report calls on the Government, regulators and banks to act now or risk leaving millions behind.
The Review’s action plan to protect cash access calls for:
The featured music artist this week is Mike Harrison of The Anthrophobia Project with the track 'Ethereal Superconscious; Thinking, Remembering, Reacting'
Congratulations to Mike who recently got married in the middle of lockdown!
All in all, I won't echo the same banners that are currently being pushed, I'll opt for "Stay awake, stay grounded, stay centred."
These are crazy times...

Truthstream Media's recent video.
One of the recent videos put out by Truthstream Media looking at the current situation is an intriguing exploration into the current psychodrama at play. Truthstream Media have perfected their videos in which we often get a very well researched discourse on the subject topic but this one really got me thinking.
We have all suspected that there are many things that we're not being told and there are more than a few of us 'sensitives' who have felt that there are other machinations occurring that are just beyond conscious awareness. Melissa's work here is a timely reflection on the changes that are sweeping the world right now.
I invite you to plumb the depths of your understanding of the 'outside' world and explore your inner world - through this reflective lens of the collective tides occurring right now.

We're looking at the deals made between Google DeepMind and the NHS trusts in the UK. We explore the best ways of successfully detoxing for the upcoming Autumn/Winter and we look through the notes of Lucretia to find out what she talked about with her future dreams relating to the rolling blackouts now being experienced in California.
Finally we have an extensive look at what the energies are doing and how to cope if you're being affected.
Our special musical feature is Joshua of Behind Reality with his track 'Dream Sequence' (behindreality.bandcamp.com).
It's great to be back!
