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…

Nightmares and the manifestation of fear in dreams- Therapy Thursday

And so it happened again. The nightmare that comes every so often shaking you to the core. Or perhaps it’s THAT dream. The one that haunts you throughout your day. Wither nightmare or dream, you cannot shake the images and no matter how hard to try, you still feel unsettled.

Empath’s Tool Kit- Therapy Thursday

Tools to help: 1.     Know you. Awareness and acknowledgement. Listen to your gut.  Address your needs.  It is easy to become a sponge sucking up everyone’s emotions and losing your own.  Know when you are overwhelmed.  Know when to set boundaries.  Know when you need time to decompress and sort through the web of emotions…

Dream Tending- Therapy Thursdays

I was going to delve into anxiety. As it seems to be ever pervasive in our lives. However, I wanted to dance with dreams. A space of creativity and messages. A lighter space, full of hopes and dreams. A place of inspiration and motivation. A place to pull you out of reality and give you…

Whistling and moaning through the old building. It was unnerving, as if someone was with you. well, in this building that is almost always the case, some…

Fractured (Therapy Thursday)

When the soul endures more than it can fathom.  When the psychic can no longer remain intact.  The soul and psyche splinter, split and break.  Leaving pieces of ourselves behind. For some, different personas emerge to maintain. To keep the body intact. Each serving a role or function. Each entity breaks through the veil of the…

Monday Psychosis or spiritual- an on going investigation

Working in a Crisis Stabilization Unit I see and hear, fascinating stories of the struggles of life. In the clinical world, the way in which people handle trauma and pain is through disassociation and psychosis. However, I always wonder is it really that? Or is it more? As an intuitive therapist I do not go…

Therapy Thursday- Shadow

Oh, she makes your blood boil!  Just the sound of her voice, makes you want to scream. You can’t stand her.  Why? Because she is reflection of you. She is your shadow. I believe Debbie Ford has the best definition of shadow, she said, “The shadow contains all the parts of ourselves that we try to…
