People want Visible Growth

These are five questions that you, as a coachee, can answer for yourself. Like a gardener A gardener watches his tomatoes grow ― and his lettuce and his carrots. A little more every day. And “he sees that it is good.” People (and not even just people) like to see a clear progression in growth. Apparently, that is Read the full article…

Ready for a Change from Within?

These are five questions that you, as a coachee, can answer for yourself. It is interesting to be very honest with yourself in this. It’s interesting also to really try to feel what these questions mean to you and how you really deal with them yourself. Take your time for this. Taking time is already a Read the full article…

Communication in openness, respect, and freedom. If you feel any coercion at all, then please revise the way you are practicing. This is AUTO-suggestion. You’re the one in charge. You can find AurelisOnLine here. At the time of writing, it’s free. This is not about letting go of your critical sense. Of course, that is never the Read the full article…

Your ‘Deeper Self’

Although the term sounds New-Agy, it denotes well what is scientifically known to be what we are mentally mostly made of. Thus, it may be the most important as well as most neglected concept on earth. I frequently refer to it from other blog texts. Humanity has come a long way. The ‘deeper self’ always Read the full article…

Listen! The Symptom Speaks.

If so, then we can ask ourselves abstractly: What does it say? The ‘deeper self‘ communicates through the symptom. This becomes apparent when looking at mind-body connections and where these start in the brain/mind as neurocognitively explained. One way or another, embedded in the symptom is its deeper meaning. This tempts some to fill this in Read the full article…

About Mind-Body Connections

How can the mind lead to physical problems and the disappearance of the same ― no hocus-pocus involved? Many mind-body connections are obvious and proven. Among others, the scientific discipline of psycho-neuro-immunology is focused on this. Of course, in reality, mind = body. Nevertheless, we can talk about connections pragmatically to clarify things. The following Read the full article…

Is Medicine Competent in Psychosomatics?

Undoubtedly, physicians are the most competent creatures on earth regarding anything related to somatic (bodily) health. But regarding the psyche? Of course, physicians can (and must) be empathic. But empathy does not form part of medical competence. It’s a nonspecific factor. For psychosomatics, one needs to be profoundly competent in the psyche ― way beyond Read the full article…

Union of Sexes

Any combination, but let us take a man and a woman, and let us let them be hungry for each other in anything they do or don’t. Let us let them love each other in the most romantic of relationships. It doesn’t matter who wins anything. There is no battle between sexes — no patriarchs Read the full article…

Inner Resistance

Resistance to change can come from ‘inner’: deep inside, thus being surprisingly energetic also if the person in question is not consciously aware of the source. Everybody has at least some ‘resistance to change.’ It’s healthy — until no more. Obstacles to change Part of G.I.M.O. is the ‘O’ of obstacles, which come with many Read the full article…

Compassion is about the Optimal Distinction

Here is where rationality and human depth coincide. The optimal distinction validates both. This is also right at the two-sided core of the AURELIS project. Optimal order comes not by attacking ‘chaos’ but by respecting it. This is a profoundly ethical stance with consequences in many fields. Time and again, attacking ‘chaos’ is seen as Read the full article…

Acute upon Chronic Stress

With a particular emphasis on the immune/inflammatory system — both kinds of stress together (modulated by many factors) can be significantly more damaging than their sum. This is, at present, a logical intuition, worthy of further scientific investigation. There is much vagueness to get through. Vaguenesses Of course, ‘stress’ is a vague – although pretty Read the full article…

The Meaning of a Word

“The meaning of a word is its use in the language.” — Quote by Wittgenstein, who talked about language games because ‘use in the language’ can be seen as having a very playful aspect. A dictionary provides the meaning of a word ― in some way, but always as an approximation. A word doesn’t have meaning like Read the full article…

No Brainy Signature of Hypnosis

The conclusion of a recent and comprehensive scientific literature overview reveals that “uncovering a single neural signature [of hypnosis] represents an unattainable goal. (*) This brings – again – the question of whether one should talk about ‘hypnosis’ at all. There is no behavioral, phenomenological, or neurophysiological reason to do so apart from convention. For Read the full article…

Lisa x Genetics

Recent advances in genetics have proven beyond any doubt that mental conditions of all sorts are highly DNA-influenced. This is very important for >Lisa<. Important in two ways: diagnostically and therapeutically. Our genes Much progress is being made in deciphering how heritability forms people’s mental landscapes. (*) Most interestingly, we increasingly see that ‘polygenic scores’ Read the full article…

When Cure is Impossible, Growth still is.

According to pharmacological and psychotherapeutic failures, mental disorders seem to be incurable, only symptomatically manageable. Recently, genetic research has added fuel to this flame. This might lead to fatalism. Nevertheless, a profound growth philosophy brings a radically different picture. You might guess that this is very much about the AURELIS philosophy. Genetics: no genuine disease Read the full article…

Abnormal is Normal

For decades already, it has been suspected that mind-related ‘diseases’ are no genuine diseases. Each of them is the far end of a normal spectrum. In recent years, genetic research has made this clearer than ever. This has huge implications for the diagnosis and therapy of almost all mind-related issues. The genetic swing (*) After Read the full article…

Open Constructionist Therapy

Open Constructionist Therapy (OCT, a new concept) is a scientifically valid way to combine constructed and fundamental ‘realities’ in psychotherapy/coaching (P/C). In ‘constructionist therapy,’ the therapist/coach is aware of the placebogenic nature (thus lacking inherent power and privileged knowledge) of the vastly different psychotherapeutic methodologies that he nevertheless uses in his practice. In OCT, he Read the full article…
