Blending Experiences

Yesterday I did the Hecates ceremony and a tarot reading with a few simple questions with powerful results. Before the Hecates ceremony I caught myself in a religious state I hadn't experienced in a long time... But the emotion was strong and intense. Whenever I prayed to God as a Seventh-day Adventist Id always end [...]

A Day of Self Care

I don't know what it was yesterday but I felt weighed down, heavy, and my soul was just out of sync. I needed a vibrational lift, and set out for exactly that. I walked from my house to Lee initially to shop at misty meadows when Henry, one of my regulars at work, spotted me [...]

The Stillness in my Heart

You know what's amazing about self-help & healing/therapy? When you connect to the goodness within you, you strive to be a better person... In particular I strive to be a better mom. I change my reactions knowing full well that what I model becomes my child's internal voice. For an autistic child, how much more [...]

Empathy is Intense

The ability to heal and be whole is lived and learned through empathy. I see now that the root of my work is to develop an empathic inner voice. The dialogue has to change, the relationship has to change, but in order for this to have happened, my understanding of empathy had to become more [...]

Honor

I don't know why, but I think I finally can personally interpret what it means to hold or "honor" a particular experience or emotion (as a certain person likes to tell me); its to appreciate the experience on some level. For whatever reason I've never seen honoring something and appreciating them as synonymous or hand-in-hand [...]

Memes & Facebook Emotional Support Systems

This was on my codependent recovery page: While so many people were liking, loving, and saying "how true" to this post, I was both angry and offended. This was my response. "Probably because grief is a vessel we use to contain our losses, and when that vessel gets too full we cry, and until we've [...]

The Smallest Connection

To be human is to grieve, because if we grieve we are in touch with the swelling of emotions that make us so complex, the glue that permanently connects the puzzle pieces and fragments that make us human compared to the clinical diagnosis that seeks to pull us to pieces for fragmented labels of understanding. [...]

The Destructive Power of Empathy: In Defense of the Narcissist

Today I was feeling well enough to head to the library, and while I was there I finally managed to pick up a book that always looked interesting, but when I skimmed through it, it seemed to bland and... doctoral. Of course, the author of the book has a Ph.D as a clinical psychologist so [...]

Emotional

I've been crying my eyes out for the past 30 minutes over something completely stupid. There's this guy at work named Josh - 34, good looking, nerdy, sense of humor, all around great guy! He seems like he's part of the crowd of sarcastic joke tellers who know how to throw it back, but twice [...]

My 2017 Tarot Spread

I did my first ever Tarot reading today, and it was amazing! I asked what the year had in store for me based on the areas the spread provides, and after a good deal of time spent reading the meaning of the cards and interpreting them, this was what I had. Aries: Persona - The [...]
