    HOW TO USE PREVENTATISM

    preventatist logo 03

     

     

     

    USING PREVENTATISM

     

    Here are some thoughts and suggestions you may like to ponder.

    Preventatism is not a religion. It is not about the power or wealth of other people. Some religions are founded on the principles of power and wealth or trying to get a person to be members and conform to the rules of some god or other.

    Preventatism is about You

    The “You” that other people see. The kind of person that those others see.

    The Plan has carved your instincts, thoughts, and reactions to fit the world around you. This is not controlling you, because the whole concept is greater than any one person could ever be. There is no leader; no prophet; no head priest!

    You can view Preventatism as freedom – particularly the freedom from pain or unwellness. You do not have to seek after your destiny, it is already there waiting for you.

    To explain further:

     

    Life as part of a plan, is like working in a TV studio,  NEWSREADER 1in which someone reads the news. In earlier times paper notes were used for the reporter’s comments, but in today’s studios a teleprompter surrounding the camera feeds continuous scripts to the presenter so that he or she looks like it’s all spontaneous.

    Many users of Preventatism have said that it is wonderfully comfortable to have this belief. It relieves the necessity to be always seeking after “The Truth”, concerning oneself about The Future, or being concerned about things that have not happened. It also frees your mind to be thinking how you could improve your actions, words, thoughts and feelings, towards yourself and other people.

     

     

    The question has been asked: “Where was God when (this disaster) happened?”

    A reply to this question might be that if God created the plan, then that is how he / she / it / or they wanted it. Nobody in this life can ever know. You can only guess. You are not being asked to accept anything as a member of a religious group!

    To get the idea and its benefits, you have to read it all carefully, challenge it and think about it all. The unwellness industry has succeeded and profited handsomely because people tend to rely on other people for their health and wellness, and readily accept chemical answers.

    The answer lies within you, and whether or not you adopt these principles in your own life is all part of that plan!

    In previous articles,  you read about “The importance of self” . How it is so important to have an excellent and impressive self-value. Not to be narcissistic but to simply regard yourself as vitally important in the scheme of things.

    You might realise that all your responses, actions, thoughts, words, feelings, and emotions, have been, and are being created, by the things passed on to you by your ancestors; your experiences; and the environment you grew up in, plus the people you interacted with.

    All these things shaped the “you” that you are right now. All part of that plan.

    If you have decided that you want to see whether Preventatism can be useful to you, your health and your life, then good.

    If one is going to “Prevent” something happening, the ancient Chinese had proverbs which fit the bill;

    “One must prepare before the rain falls”, and

    “Digging a well only when starting to feel thirsty”      “口渴了才挖井”   

    both of which are roughly equivalent to “Failing to plan is planning to fail”.

    Applying this wisdom to Preventatism, one can see that “prevention” means having defences ready before the arrival of circumstances which could bring unwellness.

    It may be obvious to you, that the task of presenting Preventatism to you by website is a bit difficult.

    This is simply because you are a unique individual, unlike any other, and even if we were communicating face to face, there would be some complex issues we would need to solve before we could communicate our systems effectively to you.

    Nevertheless, we are going to lay out our thoughts in a general way, hoping that you will be able to pick up some pieces for yourself, and get to use these ideas for your benefit in health and wellness.

    The first provision in using Preventatism as a tool for your defence, is to read, understand and accept the proposals you have read about in the previous articles

    It is realised that these ideas of Preventatism we have offered to you are unusual but having taught them to many people over half a century, you can be assured that they are effective, and certainly cheaper than pharmaceutical remedies!

    Having said that, we are aware, as we said elsewhere, that some people find it difficult to grasp the principles we are proposing. Sometimes this is because of previously long-held opinion, sometimes because of a disbelief that something so simple as Preventatism can have such an impact on the health of an individual.

    In response, we can say that we have seen the outcomes of these ideas work close to miracles!

    There is no problem if you cannot accept any or all the proposals because when a person’s beliefs are contradicted by some new ideas, a mental dispute can occur in the head of the recipient. When this happens, it is like what happens when real danger is presented to a person, and their Guardian takes immediate action. There is a certain amount of stress created.

    What happens is that the person disregards rational evidence or argument that contradicts what they previously regarded as "truth".    

    We think that what is needed is a period of rational thought and reason, in which you can challenge the ideas of Preventatism, and see if they can be fitted into your thinking and response mechanisms, so that stress has no further part of your life. In other words, see if the ideas we have proposed are “right” or “wrong” for you.

    You can contact us with questions via the “Contact” section of the website, and we shall respond and try to assist.

    Provided that you can accept the principles of Preventatism as useful to you, the next step is to apply them to your life, so that they become part of your thinking and response to life’s challenges and defend you against its stresses.

    Apply the principles in the order they are set out on the “Stress” page of this website.

    In essence though, you will adopt the ideas in your way to suit yourself once you have a handle on the simplicity of the proposals.

    You could look again at the articles on “fear”  then “Imagination”  just as a background thread. Remember this. Our imagination is a terrific and powerful tool for your use.

    To give you an example:

     BEACH 1

    Close your eyes and imagine that you are sitting on a beach, on a towel, and on warm, dry sand. Using your imagination, put your hand into the sand beside you and feel its presence, trickling through your fingers. You could imagine the sound of the waves coming ashore, and the feel of the towel you are sitting on in your imagination.

    When you open your eyes, you might realise that the only difference from an actual and imagined experience, is that in a real event, some sand abraded your hand as it flowed through, which it could not in an imagined scene. But the feelings of your experience should have been the same.

     

     

    Give yourself a few moments to construct your castle. Look at pictures of castles and see which one would you like to own and occupy? If you have seen a castle, this will be easier.  (Look back at the article if necessary)

    Construct the river of time flowing through your castle and make for yourself the bridge on which you can sit anytime, the bridge of the present. Keep in mind that this scenario can be changed at will by you.

    It is on this bridge where you might decide you can meet and talk to your Guardian. So, you need to imagine the person and develop the ability to talk with them.

    There are events of stress in your life which are unique to you. No two people react similarly to stressors. All kinds of influences affect the way that stress can enter your life and create the conditions for unwellness.

    Perhaps make a list of some of the events you can remember, which have created stress for you.

    To help, here is a guide to the kind of events that you may recognise from your own experience that may have caused you problems in the past.

    All the following examples are stressful, particularly if chronic, going on and on for a long time, sometimes in the background of life. They are dangerous to your health and wellbeing, because, as we said before, they can set up the conditions in your body for unwellness as your Guardian tries to defend you against imaginary danger.

    Anger:  

    Occurs in degrees - Annoyance; frustration; hostility; rage; fury.  ANGER 1

    You can see that these are increasing degrees, and you may not have experienced some of them. They may be experienced in your life because of an event which does not go the way you want, or they may be because someone else has created a situation affecting you.

    It is possible that you have continuing degrees of anger present in your life, because of some experience or experiences you have had. Angry responses should be disposed of before they cause you damage.

    Recognise that there is no immediate physical danger to you in these events, for if there were, your Guardian would have reacted appropriately and got you out of there fast!

    Now see which idea in Preventatism is appropriate to deal with the problem?

    Event or another person? In either case, the plan is being worked out, and an outcome is already determined, over which you have no control. Your reactions are also part of that plan.

    So, life provides you with what you must think, feel, say, and do. You can therefore simply watch the adversity almost as a bystander. If you need to act, you will be told what to do. Not by some magic or psychic intervention, but by the plan.

    You are reading all this right now and you might think this is also that plan unfolding itself!

    If someone else is providing you with these degrees of anger, you can remember that you are never responsible for anything that anyone else does, says, thinks or feels. The use of these interventions can diminish your anger to the point where it is no longer a problem for you if you use and let them!

    Example:   Your car breaks down on the way to an especially important meeting. There is no way you can get there in time, and your mobile is out of charge.

    “This is all part of that plan! Cannot change it. There is a reason for this; no idea what, but there it is. (Stress goes). So, what can I do to sort this out?”     Result – clearer no-panic thinking.

     

    Hatred:  HATRED 1

    Sometimes hatred can be simple and insignificant or low-level. For example, “I hate long hair!” or, “I hate porridge!”

    Hatred can be highly intense, as in, “I hate the people who live in that place!”; or “I hate that rock group!”

    The emotion is aggressive and stressful to the person experiencing it and needs defending against.

    The reasons for hatred can be several and may relate to experiences or misled feelings placed in your mind by others.

    The reasons are unimportant.

    They should be treated the same as you would anger since the appearance of the emotion on the face of the hater, is similar to anger. The degrees are like anger.

    As you deal with the feeling, the dissipation of the emotion should create feelings of reason, which can challenge your opinions, and lead to understandings at best, or letting go the emotion at worst. In either case, the stress will go.

     

     

    Grief:

    Some say that there are stages of grief.   GRIEF

    We say that grief is one of life’s major stresses, and so much of our work has shown the effects of this emotion on the health and wellness of the individual being affected by it. We therefore think that it must be dealt with as fast as possible and settled. If unchecked, grief can play in a person’s life for ever.

    Grief seems to be a selfish feeling which emanates from a loss.

    “What am I going to do without her / him / it / them?

    Grief relates to a loss of some form. A loss of something important to that person. If it is a selfish emotion, then it is up to the individual to clear it out of the way as fast as they can, since only they are able to do this.

    When it relates to a death, there is sometimes a feeling of guilt attached to removing the pain of grief. In other words, to feel relieved of the grief is seen to be lacking respect for the person that has died.

    The loss may be a house, home, or homeland as in refugee; the death or parting from another person; loss of a job; a reputation; a favourite cup broken, divorce or relationship breakup, death of a pet.

    All are a question of degrees and value to the griever. Such events are always part of that Grand Universal Plan. We cannot know why, or what, but often in hindsight a reason emerges. Protecting yourself from other people who are important to you, teaches that we are always part of that plan and cannot know when that person or thing will be removed from your life.

    To dwell on that thought, anticipating the loss, is counter-productive because that also is stress.

    But if you ensure always to have treated those people in the inner courtyard of your castle with care and consideration, enjoying their company to the full, whilst they are with you, this results in the loss being made less when it occurs, because you have made the most of the association, even if that loss is sudden.

    In this way, the good things of the past can be viewed with joy; but avoid “What am I going to do without ….”.

    These are just suggestions formed from other people’s experiences. Another person cannot help you in grief, beyond listening to your thoughts and being there to offer support. You must sort your way through it but being prepared with a defence system is most of the salvation.

    Resilience means your ability to maintain relatively stable, healthy levels of psychological and physical functioning when exposed to an isolated and potentially highly disruptive event, such as flood, fire, or the death of someone close.

    If you use Preventatism, your health and wellness is maintained, because your Guardian knows precisely what it is doing. It knows these things better than anyone else!

     

    Jealousy and envy:      

    Envy means discontented longing for advantages owned by another person. Jealousy means unpleasant suspicion, or apprehension of rivalry. 

    Someone wrote that jealousy is like an acid which can ruin a relationship, by eating away at it.  JEALOUSY 1

    What does it mean to have jealousy? Being jealous indicates feelings of over-protectiveness or insecurity you have when in a relationship with a significant other. It could also be between siblings for the attention of a parent.

    You have feelings that there is a rival for the affections of the other person, or anxiety about the possibility of being replaced. This typically happens in a significant relationship and requires three people - you, the significant person, and another.

    Sometimes the feeling will be about a person who was in a relationship of some kind before you met your significant other. A relative or friend for example.

    If someone flirts with your boy- or girl-friend, it can produce jealousy. You may feel resentful, hurt, and angry that person is flirting with someone you love. You might even start to worry that person might replace you.

    The acid reference above was well-chosen. Jealousy is highly destructive to the health and wellbeing of the sufferer. It is a stress of the worst sort. In extreme cases it can lead to physical violence.

    In fact, a person having these kind of problems, might use their imagination in the most destructive way, in which their "significant other" is involved in events with other people. 

    As said before, another important thing to remember is that nobody owns another human being.

    If you recognise that there is a plan, then it follows that everything in your life is planned. This means that events concerning the other person will eventuate in whatever form the plan has set out, and your reactions and possible bad health are part of that plan, unless you introduce a counter measure, within yourself, by agreeing that whatever transpires is for the best, since you cannot change it. This would also be part of that plan!

    Better humour can arise within yourself from accepting this view, because your Guardian does not have to try to defend you against a non-existent threat of real danger.

    And that, as you will recognise, is also part of that plan!

    Your main enemies in maintaining your health and wellness, are your own imagination creating stressful inputs to your thinking, and creating the anxieties which can lead to unwellness, plus other people’s effects on your life.

    All this is trying to show you how to construct ways to avoid those stresses. It is useful to have available your own responses to show your Guardian that “I am safe”.

    There is clearly, a belief behind these suggested words. A belief of the truth in what they import.

    The idea of a plan, regarded as secure part of your life, must be a great assistance in this defence against the stress of jealousy.

    Think about this. If someone you care about is a subject of your jealousy, and does not like it, they may think…”I’m out of here”, and you may lose their company for good, or they may think, like this:

    Well … if I’m being suspected of doing it with someone else, I may as well do it and be blamed for something I did do rather than something I did not do, or thought of doing!”

    Envy is a different thing. Certainly, as dangerous as any other stress to the person suffering it.

    Wanting something that another person has can be as chronic as jealousy. In recognising the concept of the plan can dissipate the desire to take the thing from that other person, since if it is the plan that you shall acquire that thing, it will happen. If it is not in the plan, you won’t.

    Anxiety:

    A formal definition of this condition is:

    Intense, excessive, and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. Fast heart rate, rapid breathing, sweating, and feeling tired may occur.

    Well now, we know that the reference to “Fear” mentioned here is inaccurate

    We also know that things like heart rate and breathing are controlled by our Guardian. So, we can assume that the Guardian of someone suffering anxiety is trying to defend the person against an imaginary danger. If this is so, then their Guardian is not conducting normal maintenance work in the body, and oxygen and food may not be getting to cells, hence the associated tiredness.

    All that must be done is to convince this Guardian that all is well, that there is no danger, and things will return to normality. Using the techniques described before, this can be done.

    There is nothing to be gained by taking on the troubles of the world ..... if anxiety makes you unwell, how, then, can you assist other people?

    It is like the following:

    Depression:

    This is a description of persistent feelings of sadness and loss of interest in things around one. It is said to be created by chemical movements in the body, which lead to the condition. It is not nice to have this disorder, but around twenty percent of Australians have depression. Chemicals as in pharmaceuticals, are used to correct the imbalances in the body.

    However, we know that our Guardian oversees and controls chemical movements and dispersals in our bodies, so, in creating the feelings of depression, is probably trying to defend the person against some form of stress, but in a random, chaotic manner!

    So, everything gets chucked about, and disorder results.

    The person should try to rationalise the condition and thoughts with the systems we have outlined and see if it helps.

    __________________________________________________________________________________

     

     

    These are just examples to promote and encourage your use of Preventatism in your life. We hope you will find it just as successful as the rest of us do.

    We don’t particularly like “Goals”. If a goal is set, then some people will not achieve them, and they may suffer stress because of “failure”.

    In one sense, if you accept the idea of life being part of a plan, then following the logic of that idea, there is no “fail” nor “success”! This is like “good” and “bad”. You can put these names to events of course, but you might recognise that philosophically neither can exist!

    “Failing to plan is planning to fail”.

    Provided that you accept the concept of there being a plan which embraces all life and everything in it, then “Fail” is something which cannot happen. In any endeavour, the outcome is already formed within that plan, so that fail is a non-issue. One cannot “Fail” Just as easily one can see that there is no “Succeeding” either!

    Remember our motto:

    Prevention means “Do not let the unwellness start”.

    The prime place for you to always be, is on that bridge over the river of time, that is, in the presentBRIDGE BY RIVER

     

    Your car breaks down on the way to an especially important meeting. There is no way you can get there, and your mobile is out of charge. “This is all part of that plan! Cannot change it. There is a reason for this; no idea what, but there it is. (Stress goes). So, what can I do to sort this out?”     Result – clearer no-panic thinking.

     

     It is obvious that you who are reading this will be part of one of the following:

    FIT AND WELL 2

     

    On the one hand you are presently fit and well and want to see to it that you maintain that fitness;  FIT AND WELL 3

     

    Secondly, you may not be fit,  and do very little to improve your fitness and heath generally, but seem not to be suffering any of the SRDs we referred to earlier .  UNHEALTHY 3

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Finally, there are those people who have been diagnosed with an SRD and know it. Perhaps these people are looking for an alternative way to get rid of the disorder.

    We recommend that anyone in this condition should rely on their medical people.

     

    The diesel engine as an analogy:

    There are some magnificently designed vehicle engines in use today. ENGINE 1Some run on petrol (gas), some on diesel oil, and of course the increasing numbers which use electricity. But let’s assume we are talking about an engine that runs on petrol as a fuel. If someone inadvertently put diesel oil in its tank, the engine will stop.

    It will take a great deal of repair to get it going again. No matter how well-designed the engine is, it must have petrol (gas) and not diesel.

     

    Similarly, with yourself. There is no magic in your relationship with your health. Even if we have a splendid relationship with our bodies, and keep a good relationship with our Guardian, if we eat or drink something bad for our digestion, our Guardian will do its best to remove it quickly, but over time the consumption of poor food or drink will cause us problems of health.

    This is true of anything mechanical which happens to our bodies. Therefore, the answer is to maintain a watch on such things. As an example, if you should have an accident, and hurt yourself, it is a good idea to just stop for a moment and tell your Guardian:

    "Please get on and repair whatever needs repairing or replacing! I am safe now. 

    If you are expecting some form of medical procedure, an injection or whatever, tell your Guardian that you have given permission for this procedure to take place, that all is well, and please repair any damage and keep infections out of my body.

    There is an old expression which is very pertinent to our health and wellness. It goes: “Use it or Lose it”. It has been referred to in some researches one of which is pertinent to our endeavours to avoid unwellness.

     If a player on a football field is badly injured, they can no longer take part in the game, and assist the team to win. This is similar to a person who allows stress to create the conditions for unwellness in their body. They can no longer assist those who need their help.

    Our Guardians will shut down any parts of our minds and bodies which are not used.

    We see this in muscle wastage particularly in those who are older, where unused muscles are reduced and become useless. The answer is to be aware of this and keep your body and mind in good shape.

    However, we think that stress is the great leveller in matters of health and wellness, so using a defence like Preventatism makes excellent sense.

    Preventatism has one big advantage over other systems of stress defence.      

    It has been designed so that it can be used in any situation the user may find themselves in.     WELDING 1

    A welder or sheet-metal worker, amid the noise and clatter of work, can use the systems.    

    Teachers in classes; pilots amid the pressures of flying; entertainers on stage; nrses and medical personnel ..... all could be protected from the stresses attendant on such jobs.

    Preventatism does not need peace and quiet, or special places to do its useful work.

     

    “If distress wins, we all lose; if distress loses, we win all”


     Well, there it is. We hope you gained some benefit from reading it all.
