    The Effects of Unresolved Trauma

    The Effects of Unresolved Trauma

    Trauma is an emotional response to some type of terrible event in a person's life. Types of trauma include physical violence or injury, natural disasters, illnesses, emotional abuse or neglect, sexual abuse, severe loss, bullying, and many other adverse events.  These may be one-time events, multiple instances, or a series of long-lasting repetitive events.

    Without addressing past trauma, many people wind up living considerably altered lives as a result of avoiding it.  Trying to ignore it, compartmentalize it or lock it away doesn't solve the problem and the residual effects can be devastating in many ways.

    Cults, Cults Everywhere

    Cults, Cults Everywhere

    I recently had the good fortune to be a guest on the Fair Game podcast hosted by Leah Remini and Mike Rinder. It is a more raw continuation of the discussion started by their show Scientology & the Aftermath, which won multiple Emmy Awards on A&E and now all three seasons are available on Netflix. If you haven’t seen the show, I would absolutely recommend it. Their Fair Game podcast hones a bit more into the harassment and dirty tricks part of Scientology that it uses against people who go against them, especially former members who become whistleblowers and speak out to expose their lies and corruption.

    We spend some time in the episode talking about all of the different Scientology front groups that had been created to try and appear legitimate and lure more people in while attempting to gain more power and control.

    Cult indoctrination is a popular topic again with the recent sentencing of Keith Raniere for his NXIVM and Executive Success Program operations and the depravity he was guilty of. Shows on HBO and Starz have documented much of that, and indicated how Raniere borrowed quite a bit from Scientology, while at the same time trying to distance himself from “cults like Scientology.”

    From what I see, there are way more cults in America and around the world, and we often belong to several, whether we’re aware of it or not.

    Not Caring What Other People Think About You

    Not Caring What Other People Think About You

    There are a lot of helpful tips and resources out there for getting past the hang-up of worrying about what other people think. Some of them are simple and practical, and others involve a little more soul-searching. What I find to be most helpful so far is to use a self-inquiry process of checking my intentions and weighing them against any potential fallout. As long as I can be honest with myself about who I am and what I’m doing, then I have to be willing for others to not like me.  Hopefully this will also translate into removing some of my other fears that I have been allowing to hold me back as well.  After all, our happiness is our responsibility, not someone else’s.

    Red State, Blue State, Me State, You State

    Red State, Blue State, Me State, You State

    We are living in stressful times, and for most of us, our respective political parties are working to create more division and unrest.  Both the liberal and conservative parties need each other to exist, to have a "them" to fight against.  And, since they're the controlling parties, they make the laws that shut out other political parties from having a legitimate chance for introducing more peaceful change that strives for unity rather than division.  It is easy for one party to point a finger at the other, and both would be correct.  It is time for a different approach.

    Moving Forward in Life According to Your Values

    Moving Forward in Life According to Your Values

    We live in a world where we are constantly being told what we should look like, who we should idolize, what we should buy and how we should act.  Generations of people are being subconsciously programmed into thinking and acting out values generated by others for their benefits and agendas rather than ones we have discovered for ourselves that are truly ours. 

    So how do we define what our values really are?  Well, it can start with asking ourselves some key questions about experiences in our lives and what is important to us - how we really think and feel about things from our own unique perspectives and individual consciousness.

    Happiness and Boundaries

    Happiness and Boundaries

    As an Empath, one of the most difficult things can be to not take on the feelings of others, but this goes for everyone.  We can be kind and caring and supportive of others but we cannot be responsible for other people's happiness.  We have to set boundaries and learn from our experiences and allow others to do so as well.



    Here are the books I mentioned in this podcast:

    The Empath's Survival Guide - by Dr. Judith Orloff

    Quiet - by Susan Cain

    The Energy Codes - by Dr. Sue Morter

    Here is a link to an article by Dr. Daniell Dowling regarding other people's happiness.
