3 things to get you through overwhelm

I used to feel SO overwhelmed…before I started doing self healing therapies.  A lot of the time it was going on for me; one of my learned patterns. Is overwhelm a regular part of your life?  I’m asking because many people deal with it even on a mild scale and for some it can become debilitating. Depending on what the underlying issues are overwhelm can keep us stuck and prevent us from moving forward.  In addition it can bring our energy down and we can  even end up numbing out. If any of this resonates with you, please watch this

what are you thinking?

It wasn’t until I did a little self help therapy that I was able to get control of my mind. You know the feeling of being overly stimulated mentally and thoughts are just flying everywhere? Holistic therapies can help! Some thoughts are usually pretty negative that can seem like they have the power to take you down!  Sometimes life requires us to literally “check” ourselves before we unintentionally create an unwanted experience in our lives aka “wreck ourselves.”  Sometimes negative thought traffic can stem from depression and anxiety and many other issues.  I know for me forgiveness therapy and holistic

2 little known secrets about anxiety

When I was still living in New York, I had an acupuncturist friend tell me that he believed 50% of Manhattan is taking some kind of anti-depressants or anti-anxiety meds.  Immediately, I thought that I wanted to give my fellow New Yorker’s the gift of self healing therapy, and holistic therapy for depression.  I was fantasizing about that statistic turning around. It wasn’t a huge surprise since NYC is so busy and there are many things that go on in that city that could easily trigger a person’s anxiety which really is the “fight or flight” response inside of us.

are you comfortable with telling the truth?

Holistic therapies teach us that in order to get to the root of all ailments and issues we need to tell the truth about how we feel. Consider yourself lucky if you had teachers growing up who repeatedly told the truth!  You probably heard in childhood that “telling the truth” was the “right” thing to do…even though you may have witnessed situations where dishonesty was the main issue.  I don’t know about you my in my childhood I didn’t necessarily have role models that were honest… it eventually led me to not tell the truth to myself and attract people

When looking in the mirror ain’t pretty

What I personally find fascinating is how using holistic therapies to look more deeply at people, things, and situations can serve us as a whole.  Like, have you ever noticed times in your life where other people seem to irritate you a lot more than usual? Or maybe you have had times when things other people say or do things (including loved ones) and it just seems to affect you in some way and possibly trigger you with different degrees of emotion like anger, resentment, or any emotion that ultimately keeps you disconnected from other people?
The truth is

at least 4 things to try when you feel angry

Let me first start by saying I realized I had so much unresolved anger pushed down inside when I began my self healing journey doing holistic therapies.  I truly thanked God for forgiveness therapy! Anger is such a natural part of our human process, but it’s not often talked about in terms of how to deal with it.  In our society we just get to see how anger is acted out like with violence or resentment but we rarely hear about how to take care of it.

I’m wondering if you ever learned how to deal with anger?  And I’m curious

what you really need in your life and why

Through self healing I have learned that we all have certain needs in order to feel good about ourselves and good about life.  Have you ever thought about this?  I have had teachers tell me in the past that the hardest thing to identify is often what we need specifically- and I have found that to be absolutely true.  I needed help- and for me that looked like holistic therapy to really get clear on what I needed to move forward emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. What is illuminating is that our whole sense of well being is really based

3 quick things you can do to calm negative mind chatter

Before I embarked on my own self healing, I had a ton of what I call negative thought traffic.  Can you relate to times when your mind is just literally running wild with all kinds of rampid thoughts, worries, justifications, and stories?  It is said that humans can think up to 70,000 thoughts per day!! Wow, that’s a lot of thoughts. Do you ever find that your mind won’t stop running especially once you are in bed ready to fall asleep…? But it just keeps on going reminding you of all your frustrations, fears,  things to do, reflections, etc.  This

when everything else fails, there’s one thing you can trust

I can’t tell you how much it boosted my trust 14 years ago when I realized that there is effective alternative therapy for depression that does exist!  And it isn’t until the New Year that many begin seeking for life solutions, changes, and resolutions.  Its a great time to be re-evaluating your life and deciding how you will continue to walk through life.  This is such a delicious time for change and yet so many feelings are involved with how much we can actually create changes.  For example: Have you had times in your life where you felt you couldn’t

The Pain of Resentment and Holding Grudges

When you make a decision to change your life and begin your self healing therapy, you will quickly realize it is all about looking at yourself, actions, and behaviors/feelings.  Resentment and grudge holding are filled with powerful feelings, most of them are unwanted and don’t feel good at all.  Can you relate?  Have you ever been in a situation with a loved one where you had some sort of “falling out” and things were never the same emotionally for you since then?  I can share with you that I’ve had times in my life before I was doing forgiveness therapy
