Having Feelings is Not the Problem

Having feelings is not the problem; Suffering in a sea of repressed or denied feelings and thinking we ‘should or should not’ feel a particular way is the problem. This article is for anyone who has tried to ignore, kill, deny, repress, drown, eat, starve or otherwise avoid painful feelings. And, of course, for the Highly Sensitive.

HSP Paranormal Talk and EVP (Video)

HSP Paranormal Talk discusses what I think paranormal activity really is, why I think the HSP is more prone to experiencing them, and how non Highly Sensitive People may not experience them (or think they do not experience them). I made a video and also included an EVP recording that showed up during the silence I thought was happening.

How Do You Know When to Draw the Line?

My mental well being is not anyone’s personal playground; My emotional well being is not anyone’s moral gymnasium. In learning how to draw the line between my mind and your mind, I am able to keep to the business of myself and my life, and if I am lucky, can assist others on the same journey toward wholeness.

How to Change Other People

How to change other people has been plaguing people for centuries. From shaming, and blaming, to begging and pleading. So. How do we change other people? Some people claim it can’t be done with, “The only person we can change is ourselves.” And this is patently not true.

Facebook and the Death of Me

I walk away feeling more depressed in that FakeBook world than before sitting down in mine. Made worse for me when I go onto Facebook for entertainment or to connect with some friends and I see little more than a continuous stream of whatever is triggering off my senses.

Codependent Insanity – “Am I Living in Codependency?”

Being under the influence of conflicting information [culturally supported codependent messages vs a freedom-seeking Spirit], I was a suffering human being. When I stopped the numbing of drinking alcohol, and my Mind had its original messages and beliefs still in there, it screamed out in the suffering of itself.

How to Get Self Esteem & Self Acceptance (While Being Yourself)

If your ‘real personality’ is not worthy of being accepted by the one who owns it, how in the name of Isis can you expect others to see it, much less accept it into the state where you feel okay about yourself? Self esteem is a side effect of self acceptance.

Never Explain Anything

Never explain anything? Never explain ourselves? Words are not Truth but can point to truth or aspects of truth. Does this mean we should never explain ourselves?

How does an HSP get sober?

In retrospect, it is very clear my Spirit – in seeking its natural state – was seeking to cast off all kinds of chemical and emotional dependencies. All it took was my willingness to let my body/mind/ego scream its death song. Piece of cake?

Accepting Yourself Despite What Others Think

Accepting yourself, who you are and where you are is easier than you might think. Despite years of others telling you you are not good enough or listening to your internal dialogue berate and belittle yourself, it’s only a matter of a little understanding to turn your mind into a place you love to live.

Codependent on Codependency (or Codie People)

Normally a helpful characteristic – desiring to show that there is freedom available for those who suffer from codependency – it can morph into crazyland and I suffer. This is my story with a whole lot of irony. And my solutions.

Not Everyone Should Like Me

Should everyone like me? What planet started this vicious rumor? Not everyone is going to like me. I’ll show you why I embrace and welcome not everyone liking me and if this can help you accept a similar reality, I would love that.
