Do You Trust the Universe or Push Your Way Through Life?

13. December, 2017Anxiety, Blog Posts, Depression, MeditationNo comments

do you trust the universeEvery word spoken or harbored in thought, creates your life. Emotions festering internally or unleashed in our surroundings affect the substance of the universe and create our lives. What are you creating? Are you conscious to the process or asleep?

Too easily, believing we are awake, we are more like robots pursuing a pre-programmed image of what our lives should be. The images come from powerful emotional experiences in childhood or later that impress on us. A woman who idealized both her father, a doctor, and Mother Theresa, devalued her life as a wife and mother. She believed a ‘real’ contribution would be ministering to and saving others.

Gain The Upper Hand On Self Doubt and Limiting Beliefs

14. July, 2015Anxiety, Blog Posts, Energy HealingNo comments

self doubtI was 3 when I attended the birthday party of a little girl who was deaf. I tried talking to her but she didn’t notice or respond. I complained to my mother that she wasn’t a very nice girl and my mother explained the girl couldn’t hear. I didn’t believe it. I didn’t believe she couldn’t hear. After all, she had ears. I was convinced she was lying and continued trying to engage her verbally.

How to Overcome Self DoubtAnother year later I recall patiently explaining to my 2 year old sister that her doll was not a Toni Doll (the popular doll at the time) like mine, hers was just a rubber doll. When she finally got the message she screamed inconsolably. My mother was furious. When I tried to soothe my sister, my mother said, “It’s too late. You can’t fix it now.”

These seemingly minor events were significant for me. At the least they contributed to the idea I formed of myself. “I’m no good with people.” The thought and the vocabulary indicate how young I was to reach such a generalized conclusion.

Overcoming Self Judgement To Connect With the True You

30. March, 2015Anxiety, Blog PostsNo comments

Kindness in words creates confidence. ~ Lao Tzu

overcoming-self-judgementKindness in words creates confidence. Yet it is the gift we so rarely give to ourselves. Instead we are demanding and unforgiving of our imperfections. This is the commonest cause of sleepless nights and agitated days. It is the underlying reason we refuse to try something new and hold back from the gusto of life.

“I just can’t do it;” “I’m not smart enough;” “I’m awkward;” “I don’t know how to socialize.” And on and on.

Such unkind internal conversation with ourselves began innocently enough for the most part. Parents and authority figures generally want our best possible future. They want us to learn to be safe, to socialize and to become functioning adults. They explain, coax, chide, and scold. Whatever it takes to get the message across.

How To Overcome Your Fears And Trust Life

25. August, 2014Anxiety, Blog Posts, DepressionNo comments

“No fear, no envy, no meanness.”

Liam Clancy, The Clancy Brothers

How-To-Overcome-Your-FearsBeautiful words. I heard them and a tight place in my chest let go. I was free of something I had not known I carried. These are words to live.

Fear is the crux of the matter. It holds us back from the truth of ourselves. It underlies the envy and is the source of our unkindness to others.

Without fear we rejoice in the good fortune of others and have no reason to be churlish.

So much misery is our own making. It comes from fear. We fear the one we love won’t love us; we fear the loss of youth, of pride, of status. We fear to be embarrassed. So, how do we overcome our fears?

How Can I Be Happy No Matter What

15. April, 2014Anxiety, Blog Posts, Relationships, UncategorizedNo comments

How can I be happy? Or, happier? Last week was great but how can I be happy with what’s happening now?

Life isn’t always easy and whether we ask these questions, most of us face challenges and stress that can suck the ‘happy’ out of life. This article is about the relationship between attention and happiness.

  “Attention is the most basic form of love; through it we bless and are blessed.”

John Tarrant, The Light Inside the Dark

I was stretching in the living room. My husband was reading in the kitchen. He said something. In separate rooms, our backs to one another I couldn’t make out his words. Why, I wondered, does he think I can hear him in the next room? I felt a snarky remark coming on. Instead, I walked over to sit with him. It was love that called to me. My listening is one of the ways I love him and it makes me happy.

How To Embrace Love: Remove the Anxiety and Make Love Easy

16. April, 2013Anxiety, Blog Posts, RelationshipsNo comments

The pouting models in stylish advertisements look ‘cool.’ They do not look like people who would be easy or fun to love. Yet, their demeanor is admired and imitated by teens. Adults are also expert at stonewalling their feelings and acting smug. But these behaviors push people away. You will be easy to love when you learn how to embrace love. To do this you must look at why you withhold yourself and act as though you do not care.

We push people away because we are ashamed to need their love and embarrassed to love them with abandon. To some extent all of us are privately ashamed of our longing to love and be loved.

As children we size up the world, reach (often mistaken) conclusions and make decisions that hold us back from fully expressing ourselves. These inhibitions prevent us from reaching our true potential in many ways, especially when it comes to love.

Parents bring the distortions of their own experience to parenting. Loving their children doesn’t mean they are able to fully or freely express their feelings. The example I give here centers on a father and his son but this behavior isn’t about men. For every Hard-Nose Harry there is a Critical Chrissy, a Withdrawn Walter, and a Haughty Hannah. And, while the example is straightforward, life and individuals are complex. In some manner and to varying degrees, we all display these behaviors.

Anxiety Help And Spiritual Healing For Life’s Daily Stresses

27. January, 2012Anxiety, Energy HealingNo comments

Anxiety can make life feel very challenging and it doesn’t have to be that way. People can be quite upset, for example, or worried about a job situation or whether they make enough money or something like that. It is important to understand what the source of the worry is, what’s going on for a person. Often things that look like really counter-productive behavior come out of, again, some kind of an idealized image of how they have to behave, and they’re trying to adhere to that. And so there are things that just have to come out for people to be able to do something different.

For example, a person might be in an adult work situation and they’re still responding to what goes on as though they’re ten years old and it’s take your son to work day. So they don’t know how to interact with people on an adult level in the workplace. The experiences that happen within the workplace for this person as a result can create great anxiety. So there can be very simple things. Not simple, simple, but things like that that go on that created feelings of anxiety and can benefit from healing around those feelings of anxiety.

Mindfulness

Meditation: Sandra Egli
Music: Torey Ronhovde

The wisdom of a thousand generations guides you today. Only listen. Without a sound their voices reverberate in your cells. Settle within and choose your path.

All of us come from strength, fortitude, perseverance. No matter how difficult their lives, our ancestors made it through and passed on life for the next generation. Over and over, until it came to you. The intelligence that guided them has also come to you.


To Thine own Self be true.

If I could present you with a single blessing, it would be the gift of Mindfulness. Awareness of yourself: body, emotions, and self-talk, all the time. Our immediate experience is the ultimate exploration that only grows richer with time. What we do or don't do, and the roots of our behavior, are accessible with the simple practice of noticing immediate experience. It is this practice that makes it possible to know and be true to ourselves.
