What The Bleep Do We Know: Down The Rabbit Hole

The book [non-fiction], What the Bleep Do We Know, is a lot different than the movie where the movie has a paralleling side story of a woman who is experiencing the concepts of the book, while real life experts offer their perceptions of the quantum mechanics. The book actually goes into detail and marries the quantum universe with the physical manifestation, offering examples anyone can understand.

Introducing an HSP Quiz

What’s been going on is quite exciting insofar as the Highly Sensitive Person realm goes. I have been finding more and more HSP’s and have been going deeper in understanding with what HSP really means! I’ve also gone to Facebook and Twitter so you can keep up with me more easily.

“Do I Have to Go to A.A. Meetings to Stay Sober?”

“None of us makes a sole vocation of this work, nor do we think its effectiveness would be increased if we did. We feel that elimination of our drinking is but a beginning. A much more important demonstration of our principles lies before us in our respective homes, occupations, and affairs.” ~ AA, Big Book

Top 7 Drunk and Alcoholic Related Episodes as a Kid

These episodes reflect only a small glimpse into my alcoholic past as a kid; Episodes of drunken debauchery or alcoholic misconduct that jumped into my head as soon as I began writing. These are by no means my worst drunkenly imbibed feats of idiocy, just the ones I feel I can safely share without too much of a backlash on my self-esteem.

What People Think of Me is None of my Business

Three businesses: Mine, yours, and God’s. The HSP or Extra-Intuitive may inadvertently dabble in realms other than ours or the Codependent may *know* due to enmeshment or boundary issues or the Alcoholic may “know” due to habitual guilt and self-loathing – but if I can help myself and you keep the eye on the prize which is knowing what OUR business is, we’ll be happy people irrespective of who thinks what about us.

Law of Attraction & Metaphysically Manifesting not “The Secret”

The Law of Attraction is a buzz word these days isn’t it? So is the book name, The Secret. And although I have vaguely discussed how this seemingly relatively new and popular theosophy has come into being, I have also discussed and shared that The Secret was by no means the first to introduce the concept of metaphysical attraction or the Law of Attraction, or attracting abundance, or whatever new meme-speak you want to call it.

Stop Drinking Without Alcoholics Anonymous

Stop Drinking Without Alcoholics Anonymous

I hear a few myths floating around the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous like how an alcoholic will die an alcoholic death if they do not go to meetings. This is absurd and often completely different than what the Big Book of A.A. would even tell you.

Reconstructing Rick – A Drug Addict’s Story

Drug addiction or alcoholism – as well as any other dis-ease, “ism,” or addiction that has a stronghold over our spirits, minds, emotions, or bodies – is often a one-way ticket to hell for many people. Yet, there is a way out that has worked for hundreds and thousands of others in the form of 12 Step Recovery. Rick shares his story.

A Relative’s Alcoholic Drinking Problem – A Memoir

The next night, I’d checked her liquor supply. She had none left, I reasoned, so if she does not go to the liquor store tonight, I’ll be okay. She didn’t go to the liquor store or drink that night. Or the next night. Or the next night. or even the next night. I remember, still, as happy as I was, waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Alcoholics as well as drug addicts are in Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. But what does A.A. say? Can a non-alcoholic drug addict be an A.A. member?

Sensitivity in an Insensitive World

Sensitivity in an Insensitive World

For Highly Sensitive People, the insensitive world can feel quite overwhelming and emotionally charged at times. Trying to change the world to suit us seems a little ridiculous and equally ridiculous is to try to change ourselves to be okay with the “insensitivity.” But, if we could change our perceptions, then we would be more comfortable in this world.

Taking Care of Ourselves from Codependency

Taking care of ourselves may not be a natural behavior for many of us. Some of us, being from codependent systems, have learned to wait until we are taken care of. Some of us have great fear in trying to take care of ourselves when others have their own expectations of us.
