Finding uiet

characters Í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ J.P. Moreland J.P. Moreland ✓ 5 Free read Read Finding uiet In May 2004 prominent philosopher author and professor J P Moreland awoke in the middle of the night to a severe panic attack Though often anxious by temperament and upbringing Moreland had never experienced such an incident before Thus began an extended battle with debilitating anxiety and depressionMore than a decade later Moreland continues to manage. P Moreland tells his story of how he overcame crippling anxiety by using practices known to the historic Christian tradition He responds to the bad advice that says Christians don t need anxiety medication because all you need is the bible and you re in sin That is crippling if not enslaving advice Flee from itSome fundamentalists say we can t go to the outside world to learn about the soul or medicine but Scripture does exactly that Isaiah 1911 Jeremiah 497 Zech 92 Job 281 11Moreland begins with his well known insights on the soul The soul is an immaterial substance or thing that contains consciousness and animatesenlivens the body Moreland 31 The soul has sensations that reside in the soul not the brain However given certain triggers they can obtain during physical moments The soul also contains faculties capacities that are not currently being actualized 32 When these capacities are properly grouped they are called faculties The spirit is the faculty of the soul that relates to God 33Moreland s key point which I believe unanswerable is that the body and the soul while not the same thing interact with each other The body traduces the soul as it were The soul has the faculty of sight but without working eyes it cannot see The body traduces the soulThen there are habits These are ingrained bodily practices Moreland argues and I think it makes sense that anxiety is a learned habit that through repeated flesh forming activities eg engaging in what if thinking about the future and exaggerating what might happen if the what if actually happens forms grooves in the brain the heart muscle and nervous system that trigger uncontrollable anxiety 43Let s Sum UpOur habits form grooves in the brain If these grooves are triggered eg by a memory the conscious state will obtain in the soulish aspect of the body 45Getting a Handle on AnxietyDepressionAnxiety is a feeling of uneasiness apprehension or nervousness It always has a trigger but we often don t know what the trigger is Moreland 52 It acts as a cover on many of our deeper feelingsHappy thoughts are not narcissistic In this book Moreland tells you to think happy and positive thoughts towards yourself He isn t saying Be happy clappy The point is that you are trying to replace bad brain grooves with good onesTools for Defeating DepressionAnxiety is a habit that is wired into our brain and nervous system 66ff Moreland draws upon the concept of neuroplasticity the brain s ability to form new grooves This is why habit is so important Presenting our bodies before God in a certain way can rewire the brainThe Four Step SolutionStep 1 Relabeling We identify our destructive habitsStep 2 Reframing We change our perception of the deceptive brain message 71Step 3 Refocus We focus on something that distracts our attention We need to be very careful not to outmuscle the deceptive brain habit since that only focuses on it all the Step 4 RevaluingHeartmathThe heart is the deepest recess of our being 81Step 1 Freezeframe Take a time out from the deceptive thoughtStep 2 Refocus Shift away from the thought and focus on your physical heart muscle I ve done this It works Pretend like you are breathing in and out of your heartStep 3 Wait for the emotion CFAN CompassionCare Forgiveness Appreciation NonjudgmentalismStep 4 Melt the anxious thoughtHabit Forming PracticesContemplative prayer This is tricky as it is easy to take it in a New AgeyYoga Mom direction That s not what Moreland is doing He isn t saying Empty your mind and connect with the Beyond Rather we attach our emotions to God and calm ourselves in his presence In any case it s often hard to pray to God when you are buzzing with different thoughts and emotions This lets you pray until you can pray Step 1 Find a uiet PlaceStep 2 Do a body scan and see if your are tense or anxious Start praying some of the psalms you have memorizedStep 3 This is probably where some will push back against what Moreland is saying He is saying Open yourself to Jesus s presence As long as you don t get New Agey about it it s probably not a bad ideaStep 4 uietly wait in anticipation on GodStep 5 Let go of all distractions Say Jesus have mercy on me I receive you It hones your focus on GodThis isn t mindless repetition since the point isn t to finally get God s attention by chanting a mantraPractice GratitudeI can attest to this one I have practiced being grateful even when I haven t felt like it It really worksPresenting our BodiesOur fleshly habits are stored in our bodies Remember our bodies traduce our souls If our bodies are messed up if our brains have stored anxiety in their grooves then they won t be able to properly transmit from the soul This is why taking medicine is okayEMDR Eye Movement Desensitization and ReprocessingBilateral stimulation I used this a few years ago It works though I don t find it as effective as HeartmathHeartmath the ancients knew that the heart was both physical and spiritual and that it had its own rhythm That s the point behind ascetic disciplines Good and bad habits are stored in bodily grooves The disciplines retune the bodyStep 1 Heartfocus Focus your attention on the heartStep 2 Heart breathing Breathe in and out through the heart five or six times This can synchronize the breathing and heart rhythm other things being eualStep 3 Heart feeling

Moreland ✓ 5 Free read Read Finding uiet Mental illness Yet along the way he's moved from shame and despair to vulnerability and hope In Finding uiet Moreland comes alongside fellow sufferers with encouragement and practical hard won advice According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration nearly 20 percent of Americans suffer from mental illness and people in the pews. Remember if you or a loved one struggles with anxiety or depression I am one of you I know exactly what it feels like and I know the frustration in your heart and the longing to get better So I offer what follows with the hope that what encouraged and helped me may also encourage and help youI am glad that I finally came across a book that tied faith and mental illness I been a Christian for over a decade but even as one I do not classify myself as a religous person I am spiritual than anything also a lot of things I abanonded becase it was rooted in tradition legalism and stupidity if we are being honest As I stated before I struggled with depression many times beforeI could not explain the reasons behind it other than life struggles However I will say that I overcamed by speaking to a therapist and reaching out to close friendsMental health is so crucial in the church so it was warming to read through the author trials I know that it must have been hard to explain that one struggles with anxiety and depression even as a pastor or leader of the church We have to stop making mental illness taboo you cannot pray everything away or use religous rituals to be delievered from smethingThree stars because of the content relevancy and the author transparancy but this did not really offer me anything A lot of it sounded rehearsed it was never giving any practicial tips for those that struggled with anxiety within the church Granted the author did state to recite scriptures and not believe lies about indentity it was not as exclusiveNevertheless this was a decent bok about anxiety and depressionAnyone who is dealing with it trust me that you are not alone

Read Finding uiet

Moreland ✓ 5 Free read Read Finding uiet Are not immune Moreland explores the spiritual and physical aspects of mental illness pointing readers toward sound sources of information treatment and recoveryBracing and honest Finding uiet will validate the experiences of believers with mental illness remind them they are not alone and provide reassurance that they can not only survive but thrive aga. There are valuable truths in these pages The sections meditating on gratitude the role of imagination in faith and lament were very helpful to meAlthough I think the author approached his writing with grace and humility as with many steps to curing anxiety books the content can too easily slip into the self help genre The reader s conclusions could easily become Do the right things do the right Christian things and you ll get better even if that was never the author s intention As such this book ought to be read in conversation with other people and other resources especially surrounding discussions about the role of sin and grace in our lives creation and God s character all in relation to mental health To the author s credit he includes an extensive annotated bibliography with helpful resources the reader can turn to nextThere s a lot of focus in the first few chapters on self which is fine It is good to learn how to see ourselves as God sees us beloved and worthy of love The author even couches it under the term self compassion which is helpful in distinguishing it from self esteem But again that easily contributes to the I can do it mentality and I think the author could have done a better job clarifying this particular point about learning to love the self in order to love our neighbor It s true that it is difficult to love neighbor and God when we hate ourselves But it s also important to nuance this with recognizing that we are beloved and worthy of loveloving because of what Jesus did on the cross dying and rising again We are not those things because we earned it God s grace is so powerful and good and kind that even in our brokenness even in the midst of struggles with mental health we can receive his grace The subject of grace is something I wish the author could have highlighted clearly throughout the text though I still thought he did a good job emphasizing our role in responding to this grace even if he did not say it in uite those wordsAll of that said this book is a helpful starting point If readers such as myself are already several years or a lifetime into a journey with anxiety and have developed their own grounding techniues that work and are healing with time that is good Maybe this book can help to encourage and solidify those habits or provide prompts for further thinking If readers are just now starting to figure out how too cope with anxiety or other mental health struggles this book should not be read as the be all end all of practical spiritual guides This is just one man s experience with mental health and his road to recovery Read it in conversation with close friends and mentors Read other books that might say something different Everyone s mental health journey is a little bit different and it takes a while to figure out what works for each person Still as I mentioned at the beginning of this review there are a lot of helpful things in this book and it s worth mulling through just take care to be an active reader and not passively soak in everything the author has to say Be sure to approach it with humility but also critical thinking spiritually
