Addiction to a thought pattern? #flipthescript #adoption

By Trace (Adoptee-Author-Blogger)

There is a language of adoption, not just medical jargon and terminology. I am not a medical doctor but I know what I did and what happened to me over a long period of time. 

The majority of adoptees have difficulty with foggy thoughts well into adulthood. (Some adoptees call this ADOPTION FOG.)
Taking control of your thoughts is difficult. Once I did see clearly what happened to me, without blocking it, without drugs and medication, change did occur. It took counseling in my case. In Seattle I did co-counseling for over two years. You tell your life story, as much as you can remember. The truth, all of it. For me it was like a powder keg exploded!  Emotions trapped in the body were released. (Google EFT too.)

There was a workshop in Vermont in 2009 that explained about a person’s destructive emotions

These emotions are thought of as an “auto-immune” disease of the mind. Tibetan Buddhists, much like the Navajo, call them “obscuring emotions” because they cloud the healthy, luminous quality of the natural mind.
The intensity of the dark emotions will arise as if in response to a survival threat, but it is actually an addiction to a thought pattern.

Using mental antidotes, what I call rewiring my brain, it is possible to train the mind out of suffering and ending these habits or thought patterns.

For centuries, medicine people have studied the true nature of the mind over body. If you read Buddhist teachings, neuroscience, and Native American spirituality, each is more alike than different.

One who faces their trauma faces the enemy. This cure is available to all adoptees. Train the mind out of suffering.

As the single largest unregulated industry in the United States, adoption is viewed as a benevolent action that results in the formation of “forever families.”
The truth is that it is a very lucrative business with a known sales pitch. With profits last estimated at over $1.44 billion dollars a year, mothers who consider adoption for their babies need to be very aware that all of this promotion clouds the facts and only though independent research can they get an accurate account of what life might be like for both them and their child after signing the adoption paperwork.

Why tribes do not recommend the DNA swab

Rebecca Tallbear entitled: “DNA, Blood, and Racializing the Tribe”, bearing out what I only inferred:

Detailed discussion of the Bering Strait theory and other scientific theories about the population of the modern-day Americas is beyond the scope of this essay. However, it should be noted that Indian people have expressed suspicion that DNA analysis is a tool that scientists will use to support theories about the origins of tribal people that contradict tribal oral histories and origin stories. Perhaps more important,the alternative origin stories of scientists are seen as intending to weaken tribal land and other legal claims (and even diminish a history of colonialism?) that are supported in U.S. federal and tribal law. As genetic evidence has already been used to resolve land conflicts in Asian and Eastern European countries, this is not an unfounded fear.
