To All Incest and Molestation Survivors…

I created a Facebook page around a year and a half ago to celebrate the work of Marilyn Van Derbur Atler, a childhood incest survivor, motivational speaker and pioneer in breaking the silence around childhood sexual abuse who did not speak publicly about her abuse until 35 years later. Marilyn has devoted much of her adult... Continue Reading →

The Happiness Trap

Spiritual gurus can be an essential part of our growth in the awakening process, but we will probably learn later on that we are your own guru. Gurus who have a following might speak some truths (which is what wheels us in because they have candy!), but for as much candy as they give out,... Continue Reading →

REAL FORCE VS PERCEIVED FORCE

We might think others are forcing their opinions down our throats or imposing their will on us. It's a common complaint especially on social media. But can people really force an opinion on others? Can people force us to go against our will? Even as adults? Nobody can force an opinion. Voicing an opinion isn't... Continue Reading →

Possibly The Highest State of Mind

The highest state of the mind might be a paradoxical state where you realize that everything is connected and everything is both. I can't explain it any other way than to say that things in life might not one or the other, not this or that, but both. Since everything is connected, even duality is.... Continue Reading →

Stockholm Syndrome and Our Perception of Love

​​ Stockholm Syndrome keeps people thinking that their abuse was normal. Unless the native wakes up, they will continue the cycle of abuse be it on their own spouses, friends, children, pets or anybody they meet and... maybe even on themselves. Stockholm Syndrome is how victims of verbal, physical, psychological, energetic and sexual abuse survive.... Continue Reading →

TRIGGER NATION

Triggers could be reminding us to feel so we can heal. There are few accidents. We all come into each other's lives to help each other grow up. The healing process all begins with a trigger (if we let it). Triggers are gifts. Emotions act like the idiot light in your car. We can either... Continue Reading →

It’s All Programs

I joined this health cult/group back in the summer of 2014 and we all got cocky thinking we were deprogramming when in reality we were only REprogramming our minds with new programs. Same prison; different floor tiles. Now my deprogramming journey is not only about deprogramming from mainstream ideologies but also newage/truther ideologies. It's all... Continue Reading →

Merry Christmas Means What???

I don't celebrate any holiday and I don't belong to any religion, but if someone wishes me a Merry Christmas, instead of feeling victimized or persecuted, I choose to see their intention instead ...which is to wish me well! Even if I were depressed and hated Christmas? If someone is taking time to wish me... Continue Reading →

Taking Things Personally

I think taking things personally is useful if we have the intention to use our triggers as a catalyst for our healing journey. But if our intention is to not use them, then the below quote might helpful. "Whatever happens around you, don’t take it personally… Nothing other people do is because of you. It...

There is No Fear in Truth

There is no fear in Truth. Fear hides in resisting the Truth. Blind idealism and blind optimism are just the other side of fear. The Truth is what will liberate us from it. No light is ever found unless the Dark is faced and felt and embraced. But very few can handle the Truth and... Continue Reading →

Why Might Emotions Be Taboo?

Someone online today had been wondering why emotions are so taboo in society and the following came to mind... My husband often complains about how radio stations and the establishment, in general, marginalize and/or make the emotional variety of classical and operatic musical compositions close to inaccessible. There are so many other examples like this.... Continue Reading →
