Different but similar

30 Apr

Have you ever stopped to notice how animals view their world? I’m always watching my cat view her world. She teaches me something new all the time. I just love to watch her.

Cats will explore their territory as if it’s completely new, even though it’s the same territory they explored yesterday. Each day is as exciting as the last. Where they make new discoveries, we discover …

Why we remain stuck

29 Apr

There are many reasons why we remain stuck, but until we decide to turn things around, we’ll always remain stuck. For us to move forward, we must move away from our reason for being stuck, through changing our circumstances.

It’s often easier to become unstuck, when it’s someone else holding us back and it’s not us, as long as we’re aware of why and then we can work on changing those circumstances. On the other hand …

That heavy feeling

26 Apr

I have that heavy feeling, the overwhelming feeling one gets with all the responsibilities of life and all that life brings.

Working on our life with all of its responsibilities can make us feel overwhelmed, particularly when we constantly have to deal with problems, some we have a resolve on, some we don’t. I’m now …

“You are the sum total of everything you’ve ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot – it’s all there. Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.”

Seeing differently

23 Apr

Unfortunately, anyone with Cerebral Palsy will know how hard it is, not only to deal with the physical side of the condition, but the neurological side as well.

As a child I had problems with feel and texture and still do, but there is little understanding, particularly around family when it comes to neurological issues. I wasn’t altogether believed. We’re not …

In two minds

22 Apr

We’re constantly being conditioned from the minute we’re born. The conditioning takes the form through the unconscious mind. The unconscious mind can be defined as part of the mind that gives rise to a collection of thoughts, which lay beneath the surface of our conscious, which we have no access to unless we know how to unlock those thoughts.

According to Freud’s psychoanalytic theory of personalities, the unconscious mind is a reservoir of feelings, thoughts and memories that lie beyond our conscious awareness. The contents of those …

Something inspirational:

“I’ve experienced several different healing methodologies over the years – counseling, self-help seminars, and I’ve read a lot – but none of them will work unless you really want to heal.”
