I will call the following client "Patricia"for the sake of anonymity.Patricia came to get help with trauma from being raped. In our first session, Patricia told me she was crying herself to sleep every night. She appeared withdrawn.
Her main goals were better self-esteem, and to forgive herself for getting talked into going with the young man that lead to the incident that precipitated her visit. She was concerned about her appearance and wanted to feel good about herself. In our first...Read Full Post »

A young man whom I will call 'John' came to see me at the request of his boss. We worked on John's thought-patterns of putting himself down, that he felt stemmed from his father picking on him when he was little. He came for only one session. Three months later, his boss called me and said, I want you to help another young man who works for me. I don't know what you did, but John has not wanted to use Meth since! I didn't even know he had a meth addiction!

When underlying issues are addressed, re-viewed and resolved, symptoms vanish! Partly because the emotional pain no longer needs to be covered up by the drug of choice. Also, the habit of negative thought patterns is changed! In John's case, the emotional pain that was a trigger for using was addressed and released!
Of course, it all comes down to making choices, so if a person chooses to remain free of mood-altering substances, great! If someone picks up a cigarette after quitti...Read Full Post »

Whether we invite change into our lives or not, it will happen. Life is not static, but sometimes we like it that way. We get comfortable with the way things are. As creatures of habit, we get into routines. Maybe our routines are helpful and direct us the way we want to go, helping us develop into who we want to be. Other times, we may get into habits that take us away from our true potential or are even destructive to ourselves or others we love and care for. Why do we do the things we do? ...Read Full Post »

Thursday, September 23, 2010 I worked with a client . I took the traditional approach of having her do intake paper work and I could tell she was a little taken aback by the formalities. I think she was just anxious to get down to business and experience the healing work! She talked quite a bit about her past and upbringing that she felt had an impact on her life and current relationships. I took an emotional history. I had her answer how she felt about time frames and people in her life,...Read Full Post »

Walnuts are shaped like the human brain. Once they are cracked open, you can use a small metal pick to get the rest of the nut meat out.. Is that where the saying came from "I want to pick your brain"?

In a Wall Street Journal book review dated August 21, 2010 by Wes Davis, the author weaves us through a series of painful events that the author, Melanie Davis experiences and studies.

Ms. Thernstrom's pain, which may have been triggered by overexertion while swimming, happened to begin on the day she became involved with a former boyfriend; the love didn't endure, but the pain did. Over the year...Read Full Post »

Theta Healing is one of the most powerful modalities I have used in helping others and in working on myself. What a miracle the human body and mind is. I am reminded of my connection to All That Is when I do this work. I am just a window for the blessings of Heavenly Father to be made manifest in the lives of others. I am truly blessed to be able to do this work. You can too! If you have any intuitive ability, it can be expanded greatly by taking the training. I teach basic and advanced theta...Read Full Post »

I remember an incident that demonstrates the transfer of anxiety from parent to child. I heard my granddaughter crying downstairs. I waited to see if her parents could calm her. When her crying did not abate, I went down to help. I could clearly see the anguish and concern in her father's eyes as he held her, apparently feeling helpless. He asked me, "Why is she crying?" Quickly assessing the situation, I replied as I took the infant into my arms, "She is probably feeling your ...Read Full Post »

Are you up to the challenge of parenting? Even if you do not have children of your own, you may be an aunt, uncle, neighbor, teacher, involved in childrens' lives in some way. I recently red a book caled To Raise Happy Kids, Put Your Marriage First by David Code. I picked it up at the library.
One of his main points was to recognize what is going on inside your own head. If you are feeling anxiety about your child, ask yourself if that anxiety is related to your own...Read Full Post »
