STEPS: CONTINUE THE JOURNEY OF TEARING DOWN OLD WALLS OF COPING

Awakening to living a conscious life means becoming more and more aware of your mind and your inner thoughts. You are listening to yourself and paying attention over mindlessly (or randomly) letting old thoughts rule your speaking. Thoughts come from your past experiences based on a great number of things. Being awake to your thoughts helps you take responsibility for what you think and how you speak. This will help you form new attitudes and create new mindsets that will influence your decisions and give you greater self-control.

Thinking about what you are thinking about helps you tear down old negative and defensive coping thinking paradigms that do not fit your end goals. When you increase conscious awareness of your thinking and see how negative thinking sets up walls that lead to hopelessness and fear of the future. Unchecked thinking can be random and very chaotic. Taking charge of eliminating and detoxing the old thinking that does not match the question, “Is this good for my outcomes and desires AND does it help advance my purpose?” If you cannot think of a way your thoughts are enhancing your future, chances are that thinking is “old school coping” and can be dismantled.

The next step once you tear down one thinking paradigm that isn’t working for you is to begin checking all your thinking patterns. When you find ones that reject your true worth and dignity, tear it down and put up a new thought to replace the old one that matches WHO you are now and WHO you intend to stay being. Keep the old thoughts from coming back by giving them no power or attention. You can even use humorous thinking to counter-attack an old accusing or defensive thought pattern, such as: “Where is that thought coming from? I would never think anything like that. It sounds negative and full of self-pity. My self is full of worth and value!”

When you begin to challenge the old think zones and bring in new thoughts to override that are closer to the Reality you know fits you, you will be amazed at how fast you change the neural circuitry of your brain. At first, it will resist and go back to default setting thinking, but soon, you will develop new pathways in your brain that match what literal path you want to stay on. Your brain is developing to match the desires of your heart.

When you keep stepping up to take control of a disordered and random thinking pattern, you choose to love your mind and keep it in alignment with your heart, and your spiritual growth will continue to follow. It is the spiritual awakening you want to encourage as it contains the living choices you want to encourage. The spiritual truths will set you free from the deceptions and false beliefs of the past that were contained in the old crumbling walls. Those walls contained gaps and holes where random dirt and other forces could come in. Now, you have closed those and only let in what is good, true, noble, right, pure, lovely and admirable.

This will fit who you are now in the present and you will keep stepping up to Higher Powers in yourself.

TEARING DOWN THE WALLS CONTINUES TOP TO BOTTOM DETOX WORK

Have you ever had a conflict with someone and it turned into a negative emotional encounter? Of course you have. Most of us have had those moments at least once and some people make it a lifetime habitual pattern. We are all on the spectrum of being treated poorly because of someone else’s emotional reactivity. We may also remember a time or two or more:)) when we were the delivery person of that kind of an attack.  I don’t want to go into the root cause of those this time as I did go over that a lot last year in this blog. Check my archives to find one of those.

Now, I want to focus (not on the cause), but on the carry forward or what it can mean for our future. Often, when one of those happens, we put up a wall, either toward the person who did it or our thinking about that circumstance. We build a narrative that is full of fear, should and should nots, and blaming thinking. Next, we relive the situation over and over, both in our mind and by telling others. Every time we allow the narrative to be thought about or told, it gets bigger and forms a permanent negative memory. This memory can turn into a chapter and book and will make ME miserable over time if I do not tear it down as soon as possible!

One negative circumstance becomes a story that will become a dwelling place for more, either about that person who “wronged” you are for others in the future who do the same. This is how generational walls and hatreds get passed down to the next generation. The kids have to be mad at the new generations because they are enemies from a previous time. So, the new generation does not even get to decide for themselves if they like those people or not. They are told a lie and believe it about the whole family or group. “YOU cannot trust them!” YOU believe what you are told, especially when it is “family” spinning the story so you adopt that as your truth. Do you see how dwellings and entire races and cultures get fearful and angry at each other? It has such a ripple effect that infects things for many years.

What could happen is when “I” feel emotionally frustrated or angry over a situation, I could decide to stop dwelling on the negative and search my mind for glad thoughts and choose to forgive the person who hurt me that very day. I say that COULD be a choice, but it rarely is even an option on the radar. We are often very quick to react and build up a wall of resentment that continues to get higher and full of more “rationalizations” or crazy false beliefs that it gets passed on to the next generation. When we ruminate on the negative, our brain will actually lose cells and shrink which further hurts our ability to communicate effectively and build good memories. The negative mindsets and thinking takes over the good cells-just like cancer! Soon, the mind is full of misery and unhappy memories, full of toxicity.

Hanging on to poisonous thoughts and chewing on them causes all kinds of disease-top to bottom of your being! It’s like gum-it sticks to your hair, the bottom of your shoe, and gets stuck on everything.

TEAR DOWN THOSE WALLS AND LET THE LIGHT IN

 

One of the hardest things for me to help my clients do is tear down old walls. Many of the walls are so old and crumbling, my client can hardly remember putting them up. Of course, I am talking about emotional walls that become cemented in our minds and block out the truth and enlightenment. Some people are not even aware that they have walls, or what a wall is inside a person.

So, definitions first: An emotional wall is set up just like a physical wall. It is meant to protect and keep the problems outside from invading and hurting a person. Typically, they are defenses set up in childhood based on childhood hurts and pains. Keep in mind that they are set up from a childish point of view. “I need to protect myself from that big, bad person that is trying to hurt me.” It makes sense and they work well for kids who are being EXTREMELY abused or hurt, and even, most kids who do not understand the ways of the world yet.

The problem with building this kind of an emotional fortress is that it ends up seeming more real than the person who set those up from the fear of a child’s eyes. Therefore, they are rarely torn down once they are no longer needed. Child grows up, leaves home, gets to be in charge and is still “walling off.” What is that about? The subconscious part of our brain does nothing on its own without programming so it is just that the old program keeps running…only, now it is walling off against close relationships that seem unsafe (husband, wife, etc.).

Of course, if people knew this, they would tear those walls down as they block the very lighthearted fun and lighter ways of living. Not so fast, YOU might THINK people would do that, but what if they don’t know they even have the walls? Or, what if they do know and the walls are so familiar, they seem necessary. Worse yet, what if the walls have been there so long, there is no other view than behind the wall or in front of the wall. What if there is a totally unknown beautiful landscape that is there, but never has been see before?????

Think of it this way. Suppose you bought an old house by the ocean and you never checked to see if you had an ocean view from any of the rooms because you never went into the other rooms, or because there was a solid wall where a window would be giving a glorious ocean view? That actually happened to me…the best view was not taken advantage of in a house I owned. When we took out the wall and put a window in, VOILA! It also added a lot of money to the sale of the house.

Begin to ask yourself if you have walls that are not letting in the light or blocking off the very thing you might want-closer connection in a relationship. Ask when you put up that wall to protect yourself from vulnerability.

Then, ask yourself when you might be able to tear it down and let in more light…..

Combining Mind and Body Detox to Impact Spiritual Awakening

My blog has been about awakening to your true inner self for over a year now. I am focused so far this year on keeping all those positive thoughts flowing from a positive mind in a top to bottom approach: change your think, change your life. Last time, I connected the fact that mind and body are working together to create a positive outlook for you or a negative, as in some kind of dis_ease, which can be brought out in either a physical or an emotional way, or BOTH!

In the past two decades, there has been much brain research to show that brains are not fixed and can be reprogrammed for good health in both mind and body, thereby impacting your spirit greatly. You can break all the old toxic thinking cycles and actually reverse the effects of those. The body regenerates, and so does the brain through a process called neuroplasticity. Once you break down the old thinking patterns, you break up the toxic impact that negative thoughts have on relationships, health and every area of your life.  Thoughts do influence every decision, action, and physical reaction that you make. Most people do not give much thought to this since much of our thinking becomes automatically programmed and reinforced over time by others and by our experiences. It becomes familiar to think a certain way, so that is the way it is…not so fast!

All thinking adds up to determine your overall attitude toward life and that reflects outward your state of mind. Your brain releases chemicals, which continue to deliver either positive or negative attitudes that will bring in a physical reality as your mind, and bodywork together to form what you think will happen. Your brain can reject toxic thinking zones, but worry and stressing and certainly, OBSESSING, distorts the natural flow of positive chemical secretions in the brain (serotonin). When the happy chemicals and healthy attitudes are not released, they will be replaced with fear and worry and more anxiety over the situation. This leads to more distorted thinking as the brain is being hijacked by all the fear and toxic thinking. IT will most likely go into survival “body” or physical mode and put you on autopilot of flight, fight or freeze, which is a more primitive way to go about life (more like animals).

This survival mode will block options and go directly to the automatic ways and the habits will “appear” to be threatening your existence (as in, I must be hyper vigilant in my own home as my spouse always attacks me with his words). You could just as well think that you will let your spouse know you will no longer accept that negative treatment. Since the brain is offline to your body and mind working healthy along with your spirit, you don’t even consider those thoughts. It is all about protecting you from the big, bad “meanie” who is badgering you.

Over time, living in fear, obligation, guilt and automatic negative thinking takes a stress toll on the body. The body always has to carry the burden of being on high alert-no time to relax! Stress is the norm! The brain stores your thinking patterns like a library and communicates those emotional perceptions to your endocrine system and boom, you are in the past of other times when you thought and felt this way in your body. You can actually feel your body react to the thinking: check is tight, stomach in knots, etc. Conversely, you can choose to take your thoughts under control and think in positive ways that calm you down and tell you the truth of what is going on in the present. Unless you are mindful and feel the feelings your body is having, you will just keep stressing and restressing your body and mind. Roller coaster and spin cycle will be your way of life…which if not living!

Check in with your thoughts and your body and ask if you exist this way.

CHANGE CONTINUES IN THE MIND DETOX AND MOVES INTO THE BODY

Awakening to awareness that what we think about and especially, how we think about the self inside us is the main key to living a more abundant and mature life. Once you begin to gain more enlightenment that your thoughts actually do control how you live, you can change and grow attitudes that align with how you are designed to be living and loving.

There are statistics that tell us that the majority of physical illnesses that afflict us today begin and continue to fester in our thought life. I know that is over 90% of where emotional and mental illness begins. There is a disease sweeping the country  (and, possibly the globe) that is dependent on how people think about self and others based on made up ideas in people’s minds. That dis-ease is right within the individuals themselves and often turns into a group way of thinking that pollutes us all.

The average person has 25-35,000 thoughts a day. I am not sure who counted those, but I have statistics that say so:). When those thoughts are uncontrolled, chaotic, and random, hormones and all systems in our physical being are under attack. It is not necessary to take drugs or alcohol to poison our organs. Containing resentments and holding onto bitterness will do the job just as well.  Toxic thinking is often behind allergies, asthma, cancer, diabetes, respiratory, digestive tract, skin and many other disease issues. Many people wander around in a fog letting things bother them without taking proactive measures to resolve those issues or they are far too reactive and upset themselves with the least little trigger.

Conscious contact with your thoughts can help detox that mind so you can walk around with your head connected to your body, well able to feel emotions without reacting to things others are doing or saying. Staying mindful of what you are thinking about tells your brain you will be in control of your thoughts. When you breathe into this power and stay mindful of the present thoughts you have, you can begin to sense when you are going negative on yourself or another. One key checkpoint is if you have a constant double dialogue going on when another person is speaking to you. If you are thinking judging thoughts about them or if you are thinking about what you will do later, etc., it is a sure sign that you are not present with yourself and connected to what that person is saying. You are checked out on them. Doing this often becomes a habit and you use it to avoid or to just ignore someone you really don’t even want to be around.

Change in your thinking will detox your mind. You can let go of old patterns of thinking (any NEGATIVE patterns much be dealt with, detoxified, and let go), get rid of letting your mind wander (stay present) or any rampages or ugly rants that rumble around (get them out at the gym or in a journal), and definitely take all thoughts into conscious consideration with the question: Is this what I really want to be thinking about? Consider all forms of guilt and obligation thinking as detox work as they beat up on your self and that becomes very unhealthy. All thoughts centered on the future apart from goal setting need to be dealt with and detoxed. Worry and fear must GO!

Replaying old narratives or what negative and hurtful or rejecting comments need to be rooted out and dealt with, as do old scenes that you want to replay. Speculation, passivity, dishonesty, anger at self or others, curses and negative predictions:  GONE! As you take control of your mind, feel the contentment and joy in your body. Walk strong and be confident that you are cleaning out the litter and dirt from your mind.

 AFFIRM POSITIVE SELF-TALK AND KEEP REPLACING ALL THAT YOU CLEAR OUT WITH GOOD THOUGHTS ABOUT YOURSELF AND OTHERS.

Remain positive about your mind, body and spirit.

Detoxing Top to Bottom

My blog this year is all about how to keep the awakening going. This will bring in more enlightenment and awareness on who you are becoming and actually, more of who you really are at your core. Most of us have to unlearn what others said or are saying about us so we can begin to soar as ourselves. If you still have “sores” or “sore spots” that are unhealed due to what others think about you, you will stay down in your box they put you in and that is sadly, how many people live their entire life.

Doing an intentional detox is not uncommon to most people, but it is often thought of as just a physical one. Actually, physical is fine, but the REAL things that needs flushing that are toxic begin right up in your own head. So, my detox begins there.

The first question to ask yourself is: Do my thoughts of myself match my dreams? If not, you are out of alignment. The next question is” How do I really feel you (referring to your true core self)? If you have any negative thoughts about your insides (not talking about behaviors) and your true self, you need to do some new thinking. The last question is: How do I treat you? If you do not give yourself good care in your mind, body and spirit, you also have some detoxing to do.

Remember that others will treat us as we treat ourselves and that is because we teach them to do that. If you are not good caring for your self, others will treat you the same. Conversely, if you treat others poorly, it is a reflection of how you treat yourself. Feeling badly about yourself or constantly playing a negative narrative about how you are not good enough wears you down just as if someone else were always saying those things about you. It is not humility to talk badly about yourself. Again, I am not talking about behavior. Behaviors actually track with self care. If you feel good about you, you will treat yourself well and you will treat others well. That is the way things work. So, the first step in the detox in your head is to change all stinking thinking about yourself. Begin to declare that you are fearlessly and wonderfully made and an amazingly significant person, one of a kind. You actually are a workmanship of God which means that you are not a piece of junk. No one is made worthless and junky. That comes from how you think about yourself which comes from someone else’s lies that have poisoned your mind.

Continue to declare your worth and value and begin to match it with the dreams you have for yourself. Remember, this detox is all about starting in your head so it is thinking, seeing yourself in new and positive ways, and speaking good things over yourself. You have not left your head for this detox. You can move down to match it with the passions of your heart as soon as you feel ready.

At first, however, the new treatment that ushers in a new life is strictly in your thinking and how you treat your mind. Declare the positives at least three times a day and if the old stinking thoughts come up or anything such as, “Who do you think you are?”-respond with an affirmation that says that you are a new creature made by God and you are beginning to think that way.

Practice makes perfect sense:)

Try to reset some of the old ways to these new thinking ways and you will be amazed at how this year can not only begin new ways of living that are positive, but it will end with bringing in much more of what you desire than you could ever have imagined!

NEW LIFE BEGINS NOW-MAKE EVERY DAY A NEW ONE TOP TO BOTTOM

LIFE IS A JOURNEY with each day an opportunity for a new beginning. Most of us wander through much of it going through the motions without paying close attention to a new day. WE have our routines and they become automatic unless there is a crisis of some sort or a special occasion. This way of mindless living does not bring in freshness so things soon start to get stale. Then, there is the complaining and admiring all that is wrong. Life does not have to be lived that way!

Most people desire to make improvements in their life and may even do some changes that are more healthy, but taking an overall look and making a top to bottom change….too much work. Where would I begin? This is wrong, that is wrong, and even the things that are good are often overwhelming. Begin with your attitude. If you are thinking negatively, you are sucking lemons and your life will “suck.” You do not make a new life with the same old negative mind set to “doubt, fear, awful, bitterness” and so forth.

Develop an overall mind set on POSITIVE. My Chinese fortune cookie on New Year’s Eve this year read:
WRITE IT ON YOUR HEART THAT EVERY DAY IS THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR!
What if you started each day with this attitude? What if you further chose one word to build your life around this year? For example, I chose the word abundant for my 2014 word. I use it to modify all areas of my life. I do want an abundant life in every way possible. I am expecting much abundance! This way, when things come my way, and they will, I am ready to be grateful and look for more. I have set up an intention to receive the best everyday has to offer. This helps me to be mindful that I am ready to bring in whatever is available to me and look for more. I will be grateful and optimistic more than just doing the same old drudgery in my mind. NO, my mind is set for abundance. Our brains just keep doing the same old thing they are conditioned to do unless we mindfully implement a new program or intention.

Some of you may be thinking, sounds great, but I have had so much bad stuff happen that I do not want to set my life up for disappointment. I understand that. WE all have things come our way that our painful and bad. However, I have been a therapist too long not to take notice of how a crisis is often the very thing that forced changes people needed to make. I am not talking about death, but even that can wake us up to the value of life.

So, what do I mean by top down approach to a new life. Well, the top of your head is your brain area, but like I said, if you don’t reprogram yourself to think differently and consistently be mindful of what you want, the brain automatically will go to fear, doubt and other negative channels. SWITCH THE CHANNEL. Look at something new. Show your brain who is boss. Tell yourself you are not going to talk mean to yourself (or anyone else) and this is a new year. On down to your eyes and ears, open them up to see and listen. Pay attention. Stop being so distracted. Then, your voice. Use it positively, honestly and in ways that are true to you, and not worrying about what others will think. Move into your heart. Do things that give you joy and help others with heartfelt intentions that you actually carry out:) Then, your gut: Trust it. Our gut carries a brain that can actually tell us things we need to know…you know how you get a “knowing” or a flash that you need to do something? That is intuition! Pay attention and do not ignore it. The base of all things is the bottom of the pile. It is the physical side of life. It is your body, your job, your sex life, etc. All these things will improve with a top down approach. Most people start with things physical and move up, never making it to the top as they get defeated.

When you begin to think of what you want and seek it with your Higher Power, then all else falls into place once you live your life in moderation and balance. Please consider this and meditate on how your life could become brand new if you tried this approach.

OUT WITH THE OLD LIFE AND IN WITH THE NEW LIFE

I am claiming 2014 as more than a “new year.” I am claiming it as a new ERA. I believe that we can shift into new paradigms by changing our perspectives which will make new perceptions that can take new routes for us to travel (and establish new roots:).

When I say out with the old, I don’t mean to throw out all that is old. keep the positives of your past life, but think about what you could get rid of that would expand space for the new ways of life you truly desire. This does not just mean things that are material or in the physical world. Of course, those things need to be cleaned out and given away, sold, or donated somewhere. As an example of that, I cleaned out my clothes closet yesterday and took four huge bags away to donate. I am also talking about cleaning out your mind, body, and your inner spirit.

A mind clearing might be old ways of thinking that is not helpful to getting the life you want in the new year. For example, if you are set on enjoying this year more, you will get rid of negative thoughts that rob that joy. You cannot desire a new way of life while hanging onto an opposite attitude. It is hard to change your thinking patterns for a couple of reasons. For one, old thoughts are so familiar, they seem true. You have always thought that way and to think differently does not even seem necessary. People build their entire lives around one way of thinking and never inventory to see if some of the things they thought decades ago are still true. I have had people tell me that that is the way they were taught as a kid and so that is the way it is. I am always amazed at the negative mindsets that build up around rigid thinking. 

A body detox is also a good idea. If you say you want to lose some extra weight or stop eating so much junk food, but make no plan to get rid of some of the junky food in your house or keep buying it, you have not set a serious intention. Some people even keep hidden stashes of things “just in case” they get a craving. Getting a craving WILL happen. That is part of the old life. Detox is about not eating the same way and forming new habits around eating. Sugar is addictive, and you will crave it if you do not set your mind on healthier things that match and align with your desires. Again, typically, it takes 21 days to form a habit, but it takes setting your thinking up to align with your desire to form a new habit. It will be very challenging at first as your brain is programmed to take its old pathways. Keep telling your brain that you want to take a new route and it will soon follow.

Emotional patterns are tricky to change. If you are used to defending yourself, for example, it will be hard not to think you have to do that every time someone else says or does something that feels accusatory or attacking. There is really no need to defend yourself every time someone pokes you emotionally. You can simply tell them you do not want to be treated that way and tell them you would like them to stop. If they continue, keep telling them the same simple message: “Stop, I don’t like to be treated like that.” Arguing or getting all worked up and spinning around with someone else’s rude or insulting behavior is a waste of time. This is just one example of how to make a change. Be kind with your emotions and take them one at a time and see how you can keep more balance with them.

Try to reset some of the old ways to these new ways and you will be amazed at how this year can not only begin new ways of living that are positive, but it will end with bringing in much more of what you desire than you could ever have imagined!

New Beginning for a New ERA of Awakening and Awareness

ERA-

I am very interested in ushering a New Era into the minds of those who are Awake and Aware. I had my last blog in a draft folder and did not post it until just today, even though I had planned on posting it back in the middle of December. I intended to get back to it and post, but things got busy, both with my professional practice and all the holiday prep. In the past, this would have bothered me greatly; even causing me anxiety. I would have been upset with myself for letting it go and forgetting. I no longer take up space in my way of being to “beat up on myself over anything.”

I have to tell you that this is part of my Awakening: becoming aware that things happen and unfold exactly as they need to-In other words, IMHO, there is nothing to worry about which leaves me free from anxiety and fear, obligation and guilt. Remember, from my blogs of 2013, that is the FOG trance we put ourselves under that leaves us at risk for doing and being out of old conditions of our previous training or living under the influence of others in the present. Living under my own influence and letting myself be spirit directed is calm and relaxing. I actually accomplish much more.

This brings me to the segue of the focus for 2014 in this blog. The TIME is now. The present is here and what is happening NOW is the time period I want to focus on. I have done my work to resolve the past and not have skeletons or shadows of the past dominating me. I am AWARE that when I have fear or any negative energy hanging around me, like a dark cloud, that it is from the past. I do my work to investigate its root and let the problem present as an opportunity to turn it over and turn it into a redemption.

This new era of using old stuff to redeem something from the past works like this. I am living in the present, enjoying my life and working on my destiny and dreams. Let’s say some dark force or negative energy gets me off balance. I have no need to blame someone else or sell out to them having caused this. My new ERA perspective is to ask God (Higher Power) to help me find out what is really at the root of my present problem so I can find a solution quickly. Typically, I get the answer before the day is over, and I get to buy back something I sold out to previously. Sometimes, I sold out to someone else’s influence over me or I believed a lie (false belief) and set up a crazy set of more beliefs based on that original lie. Now, I get to acquire my own beliefs and live in my reality around that old thing. From that foundation, I build a new system along with God’s perspective so it becomes a tower of more power.

Living under the Influence of God (and using His Higher Power) gives me the added benefit of going beyond human understanding. I can look at any situation in a variety of ways that I was unable to do before. This is both exciting and challenging. At first, I could still hear “other (s)” noise. This caused confusion, kind of like the old static when you could not tune into a station, but you wanted to hear the song. That doesn’t happen much now because of modern technology, but most of you reading this will understand what I mean. I want to tune in to the Highest Station of Power I can and not lose that Signal. I depend on and upon hearing a voice to guide me.

People always ask me how i know which is God and which is me doing the talking. Well, I tell them and I tell you readers that you may not know at first, but if your goal is to hear only ONE voice-yours entwined with God’s messages to you, you will soon develop hears to “hear” the truth. You cannot hear more than one voice when you are hearing truth. The Voice that is in your best INTEREST is positive, loving, and guides in a way that you know (deep inside knowing) that it is Spiritual.

I hope my blogs this year can help you go beyond what you have experienced before in living a new life and bringing in a new era of peace and joy in that life. Most of my focus will be on the idea of turning over the past (anything negative) that is still capable of wounding you and finding healing treatment for those things. At the same time, I hope to help you enjoy the Present and stay calm in the midst of ANY problem or circumstances you are facing. We will have issues and situations as long as we are on this planet, but New Era living helps us deal with those things from new perspectives that allow us to perceive how to transcend circumstances so each one only operates as a test to pass through. Once you learn the lesson of the circumstance, you move to new levels and do not need to pass those same old tests over and over so less situations present that are needed to build trust. You have trust and you apply it with faith in God that the problem will get resolved!

Living in this kind of a mind, set on peace and moderation in all things-no depression or anxiety- will truly bring you not only into a Whole New Era, but into new dimensions that move you closer to things that you really desire to do. You feel prosperous, abundant and you know you are headed for more of those same feelings instead of dreading the future or worrying about everything that comes along that is less than what your idea of perfect is:) Instead, you replace YOUR idea with a knowing that you are going to be receiving God’s Best everyday…

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year and you will soon be manifesting that!

See you back in a couple days,

Susan

LAST ENTRY FOR 2013 -ENDING WITH A BEGINNING

I am ready to end posting until the new year so I can spend time with family and friends during this holiday time. I do want to say that I am most thankful for this blog and am very proud that I kept up with it all year long. It did not go as I intended. I thought I was putting it out for others, but I soon just wanted to write for me and anyone who would read. That may sound selfish, but I now see that it is a kind of “mini-book” that I will publish at some point. In the meantime, I end the year as I began in the actual meaning of my intention for the blog.

 

Blogging not only requires commitment in order to be interesting and helpful, which is what I desire, but it also needs focus. In the past, I was a great multi-tasker. I now see how that skill can sometimes interfere with staying present in your mind. I learned this over the course of the past four years. In order to be creative, spontaneous, focused, and stay present with intended goals, you cannot be so busy and distracted that you are chaotic and random. Numbing and not feeling life as you put yourself into “busy mode” and pushing through takes a toll.

This is what my blogs will be about. I know the difference between existing and going through the motions in a trance kind of way and being awake and present enough to enjoy the moment. I have always “known” these things, but at the beginning of 2013, I am awake in new ways to share through my writings and offerings using this blog, twitter, facebook, my life, linked in and any social media that provides an avenue to be heard.

I hope you will enjoy this blog that combines Beginnings, Wanderings, and Wellness Endings in the context of my story, your story and the Power of all stories about people’s lives. I will share my STEPS to Wellness and the Secrets to staying well spiritually, thinking-wise, emotionally, physically, and socially (meaning in all your relationships with self, God and others).

Expect to engage, meditate, share, and be surprised at all that will happen here three times per week. That’s right! Tune in Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the latest in how to Live and Love in Complete Wellness: Mind-Body-Spirit. From my experience as a human, my education in psychology, my relationship training and engagement, age old wisdom, and expertise as a therapist will blend and integrate to give you a New Era of Living Well in the Present. I will offer the latest on anger, depression, addictions, therapy, overcoming trauma, troubled relationships….you name it; I have had a lot of exposure to dysfunction (my own and others:) and I can demonstrate ways to remove insanity from your life forever.

See you back in a couple days,
Susan
