The Little Stick Figures Technique for Emotional Self-Healing

release date: Aug 09, 2022
The Little Stick Figures Technique for Emotional Self-Healing
• Explains the 7 simple steps of the Little Stick Figures Technique and how to achieve maximum results and lasting changes • Provides more than 150 examples of successful uses of this method, including how to improve relationships, how to attract your soulmate and abundance, how to resolve problems at work, and how to detach from a toxic situation • Details a general cleansing and rebalancing protocol for your conscious and unconscious programming Created by therapist Jacques Martel in 1993, the Little Stick Figures Technique is an effective emotional-healing tool to free yourself from your dependencies, your fears, and your conscious and unconscious attachments. This easy energetic cord-cutting method moves beyond mere visualization to an actual physical practice: you draw two stick figures--one being yourself and the other the person, situation, or emotion you wish to detach from. You surround both figures with light, draw the connecting cords between the chakras of each figure, and then cut the paper between the two stick figures to complete the practice. The method draws its effectiveness from the power of the unconscious, helping you to set intentions for change and letting go. In this illustrated guide, the authors explain how to apply the 7 steps of the Little Stick Figures Technique to obtain maximum results and truly lasting changes. They provide more than 150 examples of successful uses of this method, including how to improve relationships with a partner or an ex-partner, how to detach from family entanglements, how to attract your soulmate and abundance, how to resolve problems at work, and how to detach from a toxic situation and start the process of emotional self-healing. The authors also detail a general cleansing and rebalancing protocol for your conscious and unconscious programs, which helps harmonize your relationships and supports you to be more centered, calm, and in control of your life.

The Encyclopedia of Ailments and Diseases

release date: Nov 17, 2020
The Encyclopedia of Ailments and Diseases
A comprehensive reference and healing tool to address the emotional and psychological causes of illness • Uncovers the conflicted conscious or unconscious feelings, thoughts, and emotions at the root of nearly 900 ailments and diseases • Details a unique Integration and Acceptance Technique for accessing information through the heart and thereby starting the healing process for emotions and feelings • Provides positive affirmations to effect change for each ailment and disease What if your body used a secret language to talk to you? What if an ailment or illness was your body’s way to shout for help, to make you understand that you need to change your thoughts, emotions, feelings, and behaviors? Your body wants you to become aware of the stress that you carry, conscious or not, so you can release unmanaged past and present emotions and the physical complaints that accompany them. Compiling years of research and the results of thousands of cases he encountered in his private practice and during workshops over the past 30 years, Jacques Martel explains how to read and understand the body’s language of disease and imbalance. In this encyclopedia, he shows how body language reveals specific thoughts, feelings, and emotions that are at the source of nearly 900 different ailments and diseases. The author also details his Integration and Acceptance Technique, which enables healing information to bypass the brain and connect directly with the heart. This technique disables the source of the conflict, conscious or not, that could be at the root of an illness, behavior, or condition and improves the chances of true healing. This comprehensive manual offers a tool to help each of us become, to some extent, our own doctor or therapist, get to know ourselves better, and recover health and well-being physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. For practitioners and therapists, this remarkable reference tool provides invaluable insights and prompts for healing.

Rehab to Throw Like a Pro

release date: May 28, 2019
Rehab to Throw Like a Pro
This book serves as a practical guide to maximizing clinicians' effectiveness in rehabilitating overhead throwing athletes. Topics covered will include throwing mechanics, assessment of throwing athletes, and manual therapy with the primary focus of this guide being exercise interventions. Assessment strategies and exercise interventions will be laid out in a progression that can be easily followed and implemented in the clinic today. The inspiration for this book comes from my professional baseball career ending prematurely due to injury. Shortly after I made the 40-man roster for the New York Yankees, I sustained a shoulder injury that altered my career and life. I nearly made it back up to the MLB before sustaining another serious throwing injury. After multiple injuries and surgeries, I dedicated my life and future career, physical therapy, to discovering why throwing injuries occur and how to prevent them. The goal of this book is to give clinicians practical tools and interventions that they can add to their toolbox, without bogging them down with extraneous material and information. My goal for you is that you can make a difference in throwing athletes' careers so they don't have to experience the same career ending injuries that I endured.

In the Closet of the Vatican

release date: Feb 21, 2019
In the Closet of the Vatican
The New York Times Bestseller '[An] earth-shaking exposé of clerical corruption' - National Catholic Reporter In the Closet of the Vatican exposes the rot at the heart of the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church today. This brilliant piece of investigative writing is based on four years' authoritative research, including extensive interviews with those in power. The celibacy of priests, the condemnation of the use of contraceptives, the cover up of countless cases of sexual abuse, the resignation of Benedict XVI, misogyny among the clergy, the dramatic fall in Europe of the number of vocations to the priesthood, the plotting against Pope Francis – all these issues are clouded in mystery and secrecy. In the Closet of the Vatican is a book that reveals these secrets and penetrates this enigma. It derives from a system founded on a clerical culture of secrecy which starts in junior seminaries and continues right up to the Vatican itself. It is based on the double lives of priests and on extreme homophobia. The resulting schizophrenia in the Church is hard to fathom. But the more a prelate is homophobic, the more likely it is that he is himself gay. 'Behind rigidity there is always something hidden, in many cases a double life'. These are the words of Pope Francis himself and with them the Pope has unlocked the Closet. No one can claim to really understand the Catholic Church today until they have read this book. It reveals a truth that is extraordinary and disturbing.

The Aphrodite Design

The Aphrodite Design
Vice-Chancellor August Winthrop, second in command of a human colony on a distant planet called Orilia Minori, has just been informed of an illegal cloning model called the Aphrodite Design. The Aphrodites have been cloned using unauthorized DNA including the cells of colonists who have passed away. The newest models, the Aphrodite 4 which have been cloned using suspicious methods are rescued just before they’re about to be sold off planet and Winthrop soon discovers that one of them is the clone of his beloved wife, Zara, who died 20 years earlier while in a cryogenic sleep traveling to Orilia. Stunned and heartbroken that his wife’s memory has been violated, the matter is further complicated when due to the unconventional cloning process, she wakes up with all of his wife’s memories intact, believing she’s waking up from her cryogenic sleep. As much as August wants to accept her and renew the happiness he had with Zara, he fears he’d be betraying his wife by replacing her with her own clone. Meanwhile, new Zara is devastated when the man she recognizes as her husband views her as an imposter and continues to try in vain to move on without him.

Smart

release date: Jul 05, 2018
Smart
Digitization is accelerating globalization tenfold. Social networks have gone mobile: telephone, television and towns have gone 'smart'. How did China manage to create clones of Google, Facebook and YouTube, and build its own censored version of the Internet? How do Arab countries use social networks for their revolutions? Why is there no minister for communications in the US, and why does no one regulate the Internet there? From Silicon Valley to Tokyo, from South Africa to southern India, and all the way to Cuba and Gaza, this unprecedented investigation in the field covers the whole battle of the Internet and its future.Drawing on hundreds of interviews in about fifty countries, Frederic Martel examines the different 'Internets' on five continents. In so doing, he reveals that we are moving not only into a connected, globalized world, but also a territorialized one. Smart shows that the Internet has never been truly global, and that it will become increasingly local.

Light Therapies

release date: May 15, 2018
Light Therapies
A comprehensive guide to the therapeutic benefits of light and color and how they affect our physical and psychological well-being • Shares scientific research on how different wavelengths of light influence our cells, brain function, sleep patterns, and emotional stability • Examines several forms of light therapy, including chromotherapy, heliotherapy, actinotherapy, and thermotherapy • Explains how to use light and color therapy, maximize the benefits of sunlight, and avoid the health risks of new light sources such as compact fluorescents and LEDs Beginning with sun worship in prehistory and sunshine therapies in ancient Egypt, Greece, and India, light has long been associated with the sublime, the divine, and healing. Yet only recently have we begun to understand how different parts of the light spectrum, from infrared to ultraviolet, can affect our physical and psychological well-being. Covering the historic, scientific, and spiritual aspects of light and its role in energy medicine, Anadi Martel explores the vibrational nature of light and the interaction between light, biology, and consciousness. He demonstrates light’s incredible effects on the physical, energetic, and cognitive dimensions of life and examines several forms of light therapy, including chromotherapy (color therapy), heliotherapy (sun therapy), actinotherapy (ultraviolet therapy), and thermotherapy (infrared therapy). He details how to use light therapy daily, get optimal benefits from sunlight, and avoid the health risks of new artificial lighting such as compact fluorescents and LEDs. Combining his own 30 years of research with practical insight from the many phototherapy pioneers he’s encountered, the author examines scientific studies on how specific wavelengths of light influence our cells and DNA, brain function, sleep patterns, and emotional stability; speed the healing of wounds; and are effective in the treatment of disease, including arthritis, stroke, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and brain and nerve injuries. Exploring the spiritual aspects of light, the author explains why auras and halos have been used to represent sages and saints of all traditions, revealing the intimate link between light and consciousness. Investigating the many laser, monochrome, audiovisual, and infrared machines designed to heal disease and treat emotional disorders, Martel also reveals promising medical applications for light that are currently in development, inviting the reader not only to appreciate the complexities of light but to maximize its therapeutic dimensions.

Global Gay

release date: Apr 27, 2018
Global Gay
A panoramic view of gay rights, gay life, and the gay experience around the world. In Global Gay, Frédéric Martel visits more than fifty countries and documents a revolution underway around the world: the globalization of LGBT rights. From Saudi Arabia to South Africa, from Amsterdam to Tel Aviv, from Singapore to the United States, activists, culture warriors, and ordinary people are part of a movement. Martel interviews the proprietor of a “gay-friendly” café in Amman, Jordan; a Cuban-American television journalist in Fort Lauderdale, Florida; a South African jurist who worked with Nelson Mandela to enshrine gay rights in the country's constitution; an American lawyer who worked on the campaign for marriage equality; an Egyptian man who fled his country after escaping a raid on a gay club; and many others. He tells us that in China, homosexuality is neither prohibited nor permitted, and that much Chinese gay life takes place on social media; that in Iran, because of the strict separation of the sexes, it seems almost easier to be gay than heterosexual; and that Raul Castro's daughter, a gay rights icon in Cuba, expressed her lingering anti-American sentiments by calling for Pride celebrations in May rather than June. Ten countries maintain the death penalty for homosexuals. “Homophobia is what Arab governments give to Islamists to keep them calm,” one activist tells Martel. Martel finds that although the “gay American way of life” has created a global template for gay activism and culture, each country offers distinctly local variations. And around the world, the status of gay rights has become a measure of a country's democracy and modernity. This English edition, which has been thoroughly revised and updated, has received the French Voices Award for excellence in publication and translation, supported by a grant from the French-American Book Fund.

The Misinterpellated Subject

release date: Feb 03, 2017
The Misinterpellated Subject
Although Haitian revolutionaries were not the intended audience for the Declaration of the Rights of Man, they heeded its call, demanding rights that were not meant for them. This failure of the French state to address only its desired subjects is an example of the phenomenon James R. Martel labels "misinterpellation." Complicating Althusser's famous theory, Martel explores the ways that such failures hold the potential for radical and anarchist action. In addition to the Haitian Revolution, Martel shows how the revolutionary responses by activists and anticolonial leaders to Woodrow Wilson's Fourteen Points speech and the Arab Spring sprang from misinterpellation. He also takes up misinterpellated subjects in philosophy, film, literature, and nonfiction, analyzing works by Nietzsche, Kafka, Woolf, Fanon, Ellison, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and others to demonstrate how characters who exist on the margins offer a generally unrecognized anarchist form of power and resistance. Timely and broad in scope, The Misinterpellated Subject reveals how calls by authority are inherently vulnerable to radical possibilities, thereby suggesting that all people at all times are filled with revolutionary potential.
