No More Nightmares…



August 17, 2014

This is the  "hard work""; learning how to process past and new trauma's so they are a part of our memories instead of a chronic nightmare. ~Sks

I Don't Want to Talk About It  For the longest time I held onto resentments. I mean - really - how could I forgive those who had affected my life and changed me forever?

Unchain My Heart… By continuing to focus on avoiding triggers something else was happening - I was losing my life.

In the Simplest Terms…

August 17, 2014

This journey, in the simplest terms, is about nothing more than learning to be ok when things are not ok. It's not about all the things that have gone wrong in our life and relationships. It's not even about each of the trauma's we have experienced.

Repeating the Patterns…

Sunset

The reason we struggle in relationships is not because they are "jerks" but because we (and they) are engaging with others the way we learned in our original dysfunction. We are repeating, and will repeat, the patterns we learned there until WE learn to do life and relationships differently. TIP: when relationships feel difficult always ask the universe - that inner wisdom - what the lesson is and you will be guided to the information that will help you to grow past this. TIP2: stop trying to "teach" "them" what is intended to be YOUR learning.

I Don't Need to Be "Fixed"…


Here's a lesson I've learned along the way through all the drama/trauma and dysfunction that has been my life…
There is nothing "wrong" with me. 
I am not broken even though I may have felt very broken. 
I do not need someone to "fix" me and I do not need "fixing".
I needed to LEARN about what I did not get that I needed and how to give that to myself. 
When I stopped trying to figure out "why" I felt so broken and understood that those charged with "raising me in the way I would go" could only give me what they had been given is when I was able to grieve the life I never got and needed, the life I did have that I didn't need and come to accept the life I had and - that I could still learn to create the life I wanted.
Many of us can and must find our way on our own because there are not adequate or qualified helpers to help us. This is why I do what I do and share my journey with you because this is what I expected to get when I asked for "help"; this is what I expected from "therapy" but never got. Finally, after 15 years, I met someone who had traveled this path before me and was able to share the basics of the "how" to do this journey before she moved on in her own. 
For those who feel they cannot do this on their own please consider taking a look at this post: How to tell an average therapist from a great therapist.

Dr. Andrew Saul on Depression and Mental Illness

A quick share today on the topic of what has become known as "mental illness". Dr. Andrew Saul discusses what we will not ever hear in our standard health care or mental health care.

My disclaimer is that I have not found animal products or synthetic supplements to be helpful. I have found a plant based diet and plant based, organic supplements to be supportive of creating health for myself. And while I do not endorse nor support the use of animals in testing for anything…the outcome in this video cannot be denied.



For more on learning to live a high nutrient lifestyle based on 20 years of research check out this video, Forks Over Knives (this is just a clip. you can purchase the full documentary for a very nominal cost at the connected link or at amazon) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1LUj3kxB9M
