Member Welcome

Dear [firstname],

I’m grateful for your support and am thrilled that you have joined us in our quest for healing from tinnitus. Membership is a wonderful journey, and the choice to be on the path of liberation from tinnitus always feels good, no matter what your momentary state of being…

The Cure Tinnitus Show archives are a real gold mine. Just about each one has an exercise, and definitely check out Show #5. Talk about darkness to the light on that one! (also, we even had that one transcribed!)

I kinda spilled the beans to the community and shared what a significant sacrifice creating this site has been for me, and I thank the heavens that we are now receiving these kinds of messages fairly regularly:

“It is not coincidence that I saw your e-mail this am, right at the time I realized my tinnitus was gone.” –E

“Delighted, appreciate it beyond words…” –L

The philosophy behind CureTinnitus.org is to support each individual member’s healing efforts with research, experience, and knowledge, and the kind of information we focus on is: learning from people who report having healed themselves. Because of the subjective nature of tinnitus, I can only accept “claim to have healed themselves,” because there is no way that I can “know” if someone else has healed of tinnitus. Does that make sense?

Well, it makes it an interesting investigation and a very interesting journey.

One thing you’ll notice, as you go through the materials is that tinnitus is actually a very “good” thing. It’s a very good symptom for your body to have “chosen,” if you will. It seems that before a more concrete or complete physical breakdown, the body sounds the alarm bell, and each of us has our own individual way to heed the call. Interestingly, it looks like the condition is quite obviously patterned, and what I mean by that is that the way “in” is as obvious as the way “out.” However, we can wind up blinded to the way out, as it is not always easy to look in the mirror, or “turn around,” so to speak.

A really good analogy is: Tinnitus is your smoke alarm going off, and your body is your home. Do you want to turn off the smoke alarm, or put out the fire? We want you to put out the fire, and that is what we teach.

Here is our community “Activity Stream,” where you can go to check out what’s been going on: http://www.curetinnitus.org/ac...tivity/ You can also post comments and person updates. In many respects, with CureTinnitus.org, you get out what you put in — and your comments and questions will allow our community and admins to reply.

We have an area for questions here: http://www.curetinnitus.org/as...e-experts/

And if you’ve recently acquired tinnitus, visit this course: http://www.curetinnitus.org/ca...-tinnitus/
However, the “RAT” course videos are also relevant to people with longer term tinnitus, they are just more laden with immediacy.

One of the most amazing resources in our community is the Cure Tinnitus Show archives. If you are ever in a tough spot, you can pick an episode and watch.

According to your member/donation level, you may have Julian Cowan Hill’s eBook already. It’s worth reading! Here is the online version Julian made available to the CureTinnitus.org community. We recommend the complete PDF version, however, this one can get you started:

Please note, at the time of writing (January 10, 2015), that we have a new phone number. Our new number is +1 312 273 9505.

In terms of roles and responsibilities:

I am the coordinator and founder, and I am a student of the site as well because I still have a bit of tinnitus left. Julian is the resident expert, who healed himself of tinnitus and is teaching us how to do the same thing. The guest experts supplement the work we are doing so that we can learn from more people.

Members take 100% responsibility for their own health and embark on the fascinating route of personal healing and move from tinnitus to “liberation.”

Graduates, as you may know, get a tree planted in their honor.

I just completed some redesign work, so, if you can’t find something or have any other issues, please just let me know, I might not have put everything in the most obvious place.

Sometimes it takes folks a while to read the materials we have on the site, and information itself, while simple, can take some time to “process” and integrate.

…ok, that’s a wrap, and I thank you and truly wish you the best of success in your road to healing.

Sincerely,
Dainis

    Dainis,

    I have been contemplating cancelling my membership because I just haven’t utilized the site. I have kept on for the first month because I appreciated the free month and read Julians book. I am growing accustom to my Tinnitus and believe I can beat it but can’t devote my life to it. Am I typical? Jerome

      @Jerome: Stay on board as long as you feel helped. People do reach plateaus with tinnitus, as I have. It is so low, I just haven’t taken the rest of the steps (clearly outlined at CureTinnitus.org) to go “all the way.” But I will… So if you feel like living with it is a good alternative for you and you are aware of the risks, then great. If we’ve helped you, which I certainly hope we have, because we’ve done the best we could to provide the most appropriate information for this mysterious, yet common condition…

      So, your development does seem typical. Some members stay on and consider their member dues a donation to say thanks…and they can always check in if they go through a rough spot. Others say bye and thanks, others send us a donation to help us with our work.

      If you’ve developed the belief that you can “beat” tinnitus, do you have all of the components of the CureTinnitus.org program in place? Have you moved your belief into your everyday life?

      Have you experienced direct reduction of the tinnitus, or are you only growing used to it? I certainly was not satisfied with just getting used to it…but you might be different…and that’s fine too!

      Happily,
      Dainis

    Hi Dainis,

    Just to let you know that things are going great! Your website with all that usefull information, Julians videos,… it just worked great for me! Not only my tinnitus has almost completely ‘left’ my ears, I also learned to listen to my body on another, deeper level. So once again I thank you for sharing all this knowledge with the world. I already have, and always will tell people with tinnitus to visit this site if they really want to get better.

    Keep up the great work!
    Rob
