Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Today Part Two

Pain is there, underlying all that I do, because ever since I have received the sure witness of God’s love for me he has also given me a love for all mankind…actually I had accepted that portion of his love as a child of neglect and abuse, deciding to love rather than hate…it was me that I did not allow to live or be … Read More Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Today Part Two

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Today Part One

Post/after, traumatic/upsetting, stress/life, disorder/opposite of order….lol, my definitions…(PS… I am not a doctor or professional in any field, just a FYI) I wonder if there is anyone who does not have post traumatic stress disorder? Is not birth about the most traumatic thing you can experience in this life? Going from an environment where all is well in every sense to a place where … Read More Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Today Part One

Meditation, Getting a New Start In An Old Practice

I started looking into returning to meditation a few months ago. I have taken cautionary steps to experiment with the digitally induced meditation experience that I have decided to proceed with. I want to share some of my thoughts and experiences as I begin this life changing practice once again. One of the first things that I learned about meditation was that meditation can … Read More Meditation, Getting a New Start In An Old Practice

Meditation of Yesteryear and Re-entering Today, Freedom =Cautiousness, but No Fear

It was 15 years ago now that I first delved in depth into meditation (intense practice for three years). I pulled away from it to get grounded in my personal faith as I felt guided to by the Holy Ghost. I find myself drawn into it again as I deal with PTSD symptoms and seek to heal my psychic/cognitive, and emotional energies. I am … Read More Meditation of Yesteryear and Re-entering Today, Freedom =Cautiousness, but No Fear

Freedom Means You Are Vulnerable/With Armor :)

Vulnerable/With Armor; this means that you know who you are and what your weaknesses are or at least that you honor as much as you do know. No one likes to admit that they are vulnerable, that they can be hurt in any way. It is a true component of freedom though. It requires observation, honesty, and a safety net. That is why the … Read More Freedom Means You Are Vulnerable/With Armor 🙂

“Enlightened”

“Enlightened” Born into a world of abuse and neglect, where abound the traps of self pity, addiction, and self contempt. Through Christ I am healed. The era of the pit of “the carrot” and “the dole” has ended. I will be the leader I was put on earth to be. 50 words…that was what they asked for. Tell us your story and why you … Read More “Enlightened”

Clarification on Where I Stand

Someone sent me a tweet that said “I look forward to reading your tweets!”. When I wrote a thank you back she had dropped me. It kind of rattled me. Chuckle, I guess it should not bother me, I want people to be free to do as they will. These are some of the thoughts I had as I reflected on the situation, just … Read More Clarification on Where I Stand

Freedom Comes With Giving The Reins To Christ

Freedom is what you feel when you are in line with the laws…all the laws, not man’s laws (I do not know if there is anyone who could be in line with all of  those, there are so many and they are so bizarre and “warp-able”) but this is not so with the laws of God…and this is the law that I am referring … Read More Freedom Comes With Giving The Reins To Christ

Freedom Means Knowing You Will Be Misjudged And You Have To “Chill”

If you are going to be free you are going to need to think for yourself and this is not something that is accepted in society. Even the “outliers” tend to have a group that they interact within and if you are going to be free you need to be autonomous or self sustaining. You need to understand that you will be misjudged, envied, … Read More Freedom Means Knowing You Will Be Misjudged And You Have To “Chill”

“…Freedom is everybody’s job…”

I had to put this up today: Red Skelton 1969 on the Pledge of Allegiance I grew up in school saying this pledge daily. I am so grateful for this because it helped me establish and focus on all that I hold dear today. I respect and honor every word of this pledge and know that it must be upheld under God if this … Read More “…Freedom is everybody’s job…”

True Freedom Is Freedom From Fear Of The “Other”

When one has attained real freedom what others do or do not do has no bearing on who you are as an individual and before God. This is obtained by developing a relationship based on integrity and honest of who you are, who you have been, and who you will be with both yourself and with God.

Freedom Requires Leadership

Freedom requires leadership, first of the self, then for others. It is accountable. It is self reflecting and self analyzing. It is constantly changing in small ways to correct itself to the fullness of the inner truth that one seeks for like a miner panning for gold. It celebrates the small accomplishments but does not shy away from accepting the flaws within oneself. Freedom … Read More Freedom Requires Leadership
