Don’t Feed The Beast

When rolling along in life sometimes it is a good idea to stop and take a good long look. Look at where you have been, where you are now, and where you are going.

Do you know where you want to go?

You have already succeeded in many areas of your life so you have the skills and self-love to succeed again. Notice the constants in your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and experiences. What could you always count on and what has often been a challenge or a struggle for you?

Are you 100% invested in living with peace and joy putting your own particular beast, whatever it happens to be in its place? One’s Inner Beast stops you from living your best life and keeps negative patterns alive for as long as you feed it. The Inner Beast is the addiction, a diagnosed or undiagnosed psychological disorder, unresolved feelings and trauma, poor coping skills or relationship patterns, cognitive distortions, or limiting beliefs that take you away from being your best self. It is your life and journey to be lived as you think you deserve to live it.

When you take the time and interest and go inwardly in deeply honest ways exceeding a peripheral scan, you open yourself to great learning and power. By taking an inward journey, you are loving yourself with sacred self-honesty and respect. Your self-awareness opens the door to taking small positive actions every day to help you live your best life creating effective healing and empowerment. Being honest and respectful along with other vital skills are at the foundation for all good relationships, so start with the relationship you have with yourself.

When you own your strengths and challenges, you can then do something about them. Self-awareness increases opportunities for positive growth and sets you up for a better overall outcome.

Start with the special lifelong relationship you have with yourself.  Heal what ails you and start today.

The way to get better is to make small positive and conscious steps every day. Look at this list and evaluate where you need to commit your daily focus:

  1. See Your Life as an Evolving Story
  2. Your Issues are There to Teach You
  3. Identify the Beast
  4. Name the Beast
  5. Choose What and When You Feed the Beast
  6. Choose What You Tell the Beast
  7. Take Care of Yourself
  8. Do Your Work
  9. Reach Out for Support
  10. Practice Awareness, Mindfulness, and Self-Care
  11. Watch What You Create
  12. Enjoy a Better Life and Relationships

Please reach out to me if I can be of support and guidance to you! I am here to help you live your best life yet and to help heal the world one family at a time.

Take Good Care,

Honor and Heal Yourself with Others!

Tags: , , , , , , , , Empowerment, Heal your Life, Relationships

As the new year unfolds, walk the way of moving into your authenticity and personal evolution when solo and in your relationships. Follow your own lead rather than blindly following others. If you are someone who is on a personal or spiritual path- good for you!  While on your path, you may encounter others who are on a similar journey. Some of those people will be included in your Circle of Extraordinary People and some will not (as described in the book, Parenting for Life by Nina Sidell). Some relationships will be momentary, like the blink of an eye while others are short or long-term, and others become permanent fixtures in your life. You are responsible to honor yourself within your relationships and teach others how to treat you. Be true to yourself, your process, and timing as you progress on your life’s journey. You learn, grow, and evolve at your own pace. That is your right and personal process- something we all share yet is unique to us all.

When others tell you you are not where you need to be or you’re not spiritual enough, say thank you and walk away. If you are slammed with “should’s” and defensive posturing from others who proselytize, talk but don’t walk the walk, are dishonest, duplicitous, highly judgmental and egocentric, or hostile and defensive, despite preaching otherwise- these are red flags. Typically when you get unsolicited feedback or advice paired with highly self-defensive and dogmatic preaching, it is a mirrored reflection or projection of the other person. The health or dis-ease individuals choose to carry require honest inner work and self-reflection and may not accompany the spiritual person. The spiritual path is a beautiful one filled with love and beauty. Emotional and psychological health cannot be reversed or healed with a spiritual practice alone, devoid of psychological help or work with a good therapist or necessary medication. One can certainly feel better with outside sources and support, yet it is the true inner work that heals you. Simply pay attention to who people are- and not who you want them to be. Set your personal limits or boundaries and trust your experience and feelings. Pay particular attention to how you feel when relating to people. Honor your experience to help you learn, grow, and heal so that you take good care of yourself in all ways.

Human beings come to a place of introspection and self-honesty in a myriad of ways. Growth includes a wide range of psychological, intellectual, emotional, behavioral and spiritual factors and must be included in the spiritual quest. There is not one way to be authentic or evolve in this world and we must learn to “live and let live.” We are all on our own path, in our own time and way, and there are many methods to get “there”. Trust your intuition and inner wisdom as you deal with people, no matter who they say they are. See, hear, and notice how you feel and where you stand in all moments. Be true to yourself and be grateful for how far you’ve come! Learn how to open and close the right doors for you and find peace. Follow your inner guidance, it can never steer you wrong.

This blog is an addendum to my previous post in memory of Robin Williams regarding depression. Apparently, the star was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and was on medication to help slow his symptoms. In addition to Robin’s struggle with severe depression, the medication he was taking for Parkinson’s disease came with a side-effect of suicide. In any case, it is a sad state of affairs for the former entertainer to be cut down with two dreaded diseases, but more poignant that he was unable to heal his life. Parkinson’s takes otherwise bright and articulate individuals and places them into a progressive inability Continue Reading…

This post is in memory of Robin Williams. We have lost a remarkably brilliant comic mind and acting legend. He had a unique ability to connect with people and with his exquisitely immense humor, despite his own personal struggle. Despite 20 years of sobriety, Robin was about to get help again for his depression. Sadly, he never made it back to the path of healing and chose to end his life and the pain that was too heavy for him to carry any longer.

There are treatments both medically and non-medically that help individuals with depression and other mood disorders. It is important to evaluate and exhaust all possibilities when seeking help and relief. For some, Continue Reading…
