Keys to the Unexplored Self
by Ceanne DeRohan
I have been searching for answers for quite some time, because I have had a persistent feeling that despite all of our exhorting of one another and all of our efforts to improve our situation on this planet, there has been something underlying that would explain why we have not been very successful.
When I came across the information that the development of most of our brains has been becoming increasingly abnormal, imbalanced and dominated by the part of our brain referred to as our Reptilian brain stem, I was impacted by the realization that here was the explanation I had been seeking. Now, everything suddenly made sense in a way that it had not before. Reptilian brain domination has been the root cause of most of our many and collective problems.
As I looked at the world with this added understanding, I also realized that even though the symptoms and enactments of advancing Reptilian brain domination had been becoming increasingly apparent all around us, and are most easily seen in the lack of real caring about others, the idea that anything can be done no matter what the impact, the dishonesty, corruption, thievery, violence and war, as far as I knew, our increasing brain imbalances had not been recognized for what they really are, for how it happens or for what this really means.
While our Reptilian brain is a very important part of our brain for keeping us alive and regulating our body, it is not meant to be dominant. To be fully human, all parts of our brain need to develop and function in an interactive balance. However, Reptilian brain domination has become so prevalent that it has come to be regarded as normal and has even been being described as “human nature.” This is not the true nature of humans.
Early stress and trauma are major causes of our brain imbalances, and even though there have been commendable efforts to return to our more natural ways, 95% of births in the United States are still traumatic, 65% highly traumatic. These traumas almost always result in Reptilian brain domination, at least to some degree. Because these imbalances in our brain and nervous system have occurred in the nonverbal parts of our brain, their root cause had been overlooked until very recently when some scientists decided to shift their focus from the Neocortical, thinking brain, and study other parts of the brain that had previously been dismissed as outmoded or "primitive."
Understanding the far-reaching effects of Reptilian brain domination, why it is so detrimental, what we can do about it and how we can stop passing these problems on to future generations is what this book is about. With this information, we can more effectively make the shifts we need to make on the deep and underlying levels where these shifts need to be made, not only in ourselves, but also socially and globally.
Although Feelings Matter is not part of the Right Use of Will series, it contains the same basic concepts applied to our brain development, our health and our ability to function in our daily lives.
Anyone you wanted to give a copy of Right Use of Will, but didn't think they would accept the information, can read this, because the same basic concepts are all backed up now with science.
