In my practice as a psychiatrist and personally, I’ve known many people who I called “the emotional gusher.” Gushers are experts at knowing their emotions and were born to share them. No one has to wonder where they’re at. Elated, bored, miserable, they tell you. What you see is what you get. They tend to be spontaneous, direct, authentic, and trusted confidants. The gusher unloads stress by verbalizing it. I, for one, know how freeing this can be. I am grateful to my treasured circle of…Continue

Today, I remember ALL warriors from all times and space and in all directions.
The "barbarians" who fought to protect their homeland and their women.
The Priestesses who stood ground one last time for the Great Mother against those who would see her forgotten and disgraced!
I honor my ancestors, the Generals who have fought since Fitzhough Lee and before!
The Mothers who bore them! The blood offering you gave stands acknowledged, honored and…Continue

The Journey to your Soul,
truly the Journey to your Heart,
to see, to listen and to feel,
is always the start,
walking the bridge, up an down,
so many times,
Heart and Head, being joined,
easing the mind
To deeply breathe in,
everything all around,
letting out all the tears,
the solace you will find,
the surrender of the pain,
the pattern that you had,
the letting go of it all,
the reasons to be sad

We are all story tellers. We tell our stories from our own perspectives. Sometimes our stories can create empathy, sadness, anger or helplessness for ourselves and the listener.
I have met people who are passionate about their stories. One story that comes up many times is when somebody has done someone harm and the one harmed does not wish to see that person any more. Yet, the one who was harmed continuously talks about the person that they…Continue

Reality and Dealing with Negative Feelings
Anger, frustration, fear, worry – they do come – we are only human. The question is what to do with these feelings when they arise. This is a question I was confronted with just a couple of days ago, when I found myself swamped in them after spending several frustrating hours dealing with insurance companies regarding a claim following someone running into my car from behind while my daughter was driving. This happened a couple of months…Continue

Art is something personal don’t you think? We are all born with the ability to create and become an artist in whatever discipline we choose.
None greater than being your own artist discovering the lifelong shape of who you are. That means always being willing to know and learn about you. It is without exception the greatest journey of your life. It’s about experimenting with experience. It’s not about getting it wrong or right but merely learning about what feels good and what doesn’t…Continue

Sometimes you have to get lost to find your way.
I went to sleep last night with a general feeling of being at “loose ends” and with the earlier feelings of anger, frustration, fear and worry and not being able to wholly reconcile them as being related to recent dealings with a particular bureaucracy. So before going to sleep I asked for direction and purpose – I have not written for a very long…Continue

A Responsible Approach to Health Care
Once upon a time, in land far away (but closer than you think) the inhabitants of the planet utilize Science and Nature in the complete healing of the human mind : body : spirit. In those days, wisdom about nature was shared freely as there was an…

Reflection: “Pride gets in the way when we tell ourselves we are strong and that we shouldn’t burden others with our problems." Yehuda Berg
The tank is empty…
When we are hurting deep, down inside, there is a thought that tells us, ‘do not bother anybody with this problem. They have their own problems. I should be able to handle this myself.’ Or, ‘people will think the worst of me.’ Thoughts such as these promote and insure…

Message from My Morning Meditation – May 15, 2011
My life is a twisted turning road and I never know what awaits me around the next bend. But I travel this road in complete Freedom from Fear for I know without a doubt, with complete Faith in God and His loving Universe, that another wonderful exciting and beautiful surprise is waiting for me once I get around the curve. It may be a sharp and unexpected turn and I will have to navigate it carefully and slowly, but once I get past it, a…Continue
