No… You Are Not Crazy

Ever feel like you’re going crazy? Silly question, right? We’ve all felt a little overwhelmed at times, COVID-19 notwithstanding. Emotions Do Not Equal Psychiatric Disorders As humans we seem to feel better when we can label whatever it is that bothers us. Medical and psychiatric disorders probably top that...

Casual Friendships and Meaningful Relationships

The Pandemic created a loss of a certain group of people we didn’t necessarily consider friends. Missing them, however, put a strain on meaningful relationships as we looked to our own households to fill a gap of nurturing we hadn’t realized we were feeling prior to the Pandemic. It...

Everyone Has a Bad Day

Having a good day? Or maybe it’s a bad one? What constitutes the difference? A rainy day doesn’t have to be a bad day. A wet one, sure. But bad? Not necessarily. Same with good days. Those might be defined as the days we got a lot done. Or...

Why Faking It Sells Us Short

There are those who are so fixated on pretending everything is alright in the world that admitting spiritual social justice issues exist offends their sensibilities. One of the biggest “panties in a bunch” issue in New Thought centers is this overwhelming need to re-write the song, “Let There Be...

Should We Be Specific in Prayer?

Let’s cut to the chase with the short answer: Maybe My feelings and practice about this question have changed over the years, and in particular, over this past twelve months. Whether we use spiritual mind treatment or traditional prayers, the approach is the same. Being Specific Mind maps have...

Seriously, Universe?!?

Where do you find your guidance? We might engage in prayer treatment or meditation expecting divine direction. If that’s what we genuinely believe on a deep emotional level it must occur. The conduit, however, sometimes surprises us. One therapist worked with a client for over a year on a...

Is Age Just a Number?

Are you one of those people who tell the truth no matter what? I once read this is usually a quality only found in young children and older adults. The kids don’t know any better. And, as we age, the older we get the less we care about what...

Give It … or Lose It?

I’m thinking about love and forgiveness today. Those two get tangled up quite a bit. Clients tell me, “I just can’t forgive him. He doesn’t deserve it.” I tell them, “Perhaps not, but you do.” The longer we refuse to forgive someone the stronger those psychic ties become. Often,...
