Trauma (therapy Thursdays)

Empty eyes, gazing away- lost and marous. The look when trauma enters the room. It’s like a flickering light, deciding on whether or not it’s going to stay on or off. And once it’s on or off, there is no turning back. It’s like a 50 foot wave has crashed upon the person sitting across…

All the lonely people

A deep sadness exists today. Profound and devouring. An inability to cope. Light lost in the darkness. Heads down. Absorbed in technology. Losing contact. Lost. Alone. Day after day. Locked away. Trying to cure loneliness with technology. We lack human interaction and ability to connect. Each and everyday the sea of zombies slug through life….

To my inner teenager (part 3)

Dearest me, adolescent me, First know that you are loved, unconditionally, deeply and profoundly. You have carried my shame and burdens, without complaint. Thank you. You are my inspiration. My poet. My artist. My punker. My goth. My love of horror. My witch. My rebel. You are my dark crafty, creative side. Ever loving Edgar…

To all the haters, judgers, predators, and so on (part 2)

To all the predators, violators, manipulators, haters, judgers, silencers, watchers, persecutors, and those who failed to speak up. To all those who sat in silence and watched my self-destruction. Judged me. Held me accountable for my self-hatred, without seeing the broken, lost soul screaming for love, attention and help. For those who saw me as…

Letters (Therapy Thursdays- part 1)

Letters are a way for us to look at deep pains and wounds, in the safety and containment of ourselves, in the places we feel safest. Letters allow us to look inward at the places we need to hold the most.  The places we need to tend to, to create change and movement.

What affects you- really? Are you an empath? (Therapy Thursday)

Do you know what affects you? How you engage with the world? Are you in tune with how move through the world? Some people are incredibly introspective and self aware. Adjusting and shifting every opportunity they have. Others seem oblivious to how they affect other or how others affect them. Focused on themselves, loosing sight…

Reiki (therapy Thursdays)

My hands are on fire. I can feel the energy pulsating through them. And as I quiet my mind. Slow my breathing. Connect to my body. I can hear the whispers. The information that flows to me, to help you. Reiki is much more than just tapping into the stream of universal energy for healing….

Staying stuck- Therapy Thursdays

I really don’t know what I am doing. I jumped without a parachute. And as I am falling. I am freaking out. Scrambling. Searching. Closing my eyes and praying. What the f*ck did I just do? I have sat in this place of misery. The burnout The fatigue. The drain. The exhaustion. I have wallowed…

A Healer, A Shaman and A Catholic (Psychosis and Spirituality)

I was blessed to be able to interview a few people about their thoughts and feelings about psychosis and spirituality.  Here is what I learned: Robin Wiggs the phenomenal healing owner of Alchemy of Light. My spiritual beliefs:  I was brought up in a Christian home and while, even as a child, many of the teachings…

The Gargoyle and the teachings of life

And there he sat. Perched at the end of my bed. Disrupting my sleep. Entering my twilight. That place between time and space, between awake and asleep, alert and rooted in reality or engaged in subconscious fantasy. Half awake, I thought I was dreaming. Maybe hallucinating. Lost in between worlds, in between keenly attentive and wrapped in imagination.

Exposed

Fear of being seen Exposed and vulnerable Judgement, ridicule, death We fear being uncovered, unveiled, and unmasked.  We wear our facades to fatality.  And for what? A life half lived. How would you live if you weren’t afraid of what would be exposed? Check more Exposed out here
