    Haunted Painting

    Thank you Teal for sharing her, she seems so inquisitive wanting to see what's going on around her but the thing that drew my attention was her hands and her fingers. How graceful and sensitive, was she an artist? a seamstress? But on closer inspection her fingers seem out of perspective as though they are moving in some unnatural way. They seem too long to be wholly human and yet so graceful and delicate. And yet, there's pain there too. Take good care of her!
  2. I give up. The stress has gotten to me and I'm ready to quit. Between the Covid threat, the guards, the co-workers, the administration, none of them seem to have my back. I suspect they see me as a threat to the status quo and I learned a long time ago to listen to my gut! It breaks my heart.
  3. What a timely introduction. I've gone back to work in a prison psych unit only to find the addiction treatment to be largely absent due to budget cuts over previous years. I'm lobbying for more addiction treatment where I work and because of my background as a provider administration is responding positively.
  4. Diabetes and addiction have often been compared and I agree there seems to be a link here! I have type 2 diabetes and have to take oral medication daily. That's perfectly acceptable in our society where self-medicating or abusing self with drugs or alcohol is not. But there is a physical link as well. the damage done by years of alcohol abuse can damage the liver and pancreas' ability to function properly and this produces a situation where we must address the lack of healthy function through diet, exercise and medication. Our attitude toward this can be negative, "oh poor me look at all the s

    Why You Get Triggered

    What is really scary is when you see people you work with intentionally triggering their patients not to address the source of those feelings but to exercise their own power and feel superior as therapists.

    Total BS

    BS indeed! We need the concept of forgiveness to give us hope and direction for without forgiveness there is no growth there is no possibility of letting go the hate that can consume our whole existence. I know you know this Teal and i have heard you speak of how your letting go of your abuse and forgiving the abuse freed you to become the spiritual leader you've become today. Yes, forgiveness and "I forgive you." become trite and over simplified to the point of corruption. True forgiveness is a long and messy process which has little to do with the abuser and everything to do with our own per

    Somatic Hallucinations

    Normal learning takes place in the brain as patterns of neurons firing reinforce th neurons ability to produce the neurotransmitter hormones that are required for the neuron to fire. So in the completion process the brain is flooded with neuro transmitters which then allow new pathways to form and begin the process of replacing the old pathways that need to be "unlearned." So during the flood other pathways that have been ignored or repressed also fire and allow us to feel things we had shut off in our brain in order to deal with the overwhelming nature of these sensations. It's kind of like w
  8. Hi Teal, glad to hear you got some time off and wilderness time to feed you soul. I agree we're all in this together and we can help each other over come the gas lighting but my feelings of doom are fed by the reality of the major extinction event we find ourselves in and corona just seems to be a symptom of this larger doom which literally threatens to remove our species as it currently exists on this planet. Can you speak to this?
  9. Thanks Teal, that makes a lot of sense. Wilhelm Reich wrote The mass psychology of Fascism in the '30s detailing how the family structure of an authoritarian father created a society who idealized the strong man/dictator form of government that led to Hitler and the Holocaust. He paralleled the authoritarianism of the family with the authoritarianism in government and showed a relationship between family structure and societal structure. We are struggling to throw off that need for authoritarian rule and become more truly democratic and integrated. I also thing the principal is related to the

    Uncertainty

    so i went back to work recently but i don't think I'm going to last. I applied for a job because I was bored to death with staying home and being quarantined. But, I took a job where i drive an hour and a half to get to work to work in a secure facility with mentally ill prisoners. I love the work but the drive is killing me. I'm talking severe crushing physical fatigue. it interferes with my being able to do my job and all I do otherwise is try to recuperate. If i can't take care of myself how can i take care of others? I think the universe is showing me i can go back to work but that jumping
  11. I think my favorite mineral is Quartz. As a kid it was like a low grade diamond, as an adult I found fascination in how the world looked through it. I knew that what i saw there wasn't the same as what I saw in the world without it. i was also fascinated by quartz ability to give off an electrical current when stressed. i had a quartz radio I built as a kid. No power or battery yet it could sense the radio waves and turn them into a sound I could hear! How does it know? I think my spirit mineral may be iron pyrite or "fool's gold" flashy, sparkly, gold in color but of little worth compare
  12. So what's the up side of all we are going through right now? What with the Corona virus pandemic and the political and social extremism where will we be in a year? 5? 10? What's coming. Seems to me it has to get worse before it can get better. Total Fascist dictatorship and more concentration camps. Government condoned violence toward progressives? Leftist? Socialists? Gays? New and deadlier viruses? Computer viruses? Collapse of civilization? Nuclear war? Famine? when do we come out the other side? Is there a new Eden a new world after the collapse?

    Invisible Trauma

    Isn't this like generational healing where we heal our generational curses, the trauma that's been passed down to us through generations of dysfunction? I think it opens up a huge area of therapeutic visualizations for all sorts of trauma and neglect.

    Hate Is Hurt

    First you'd have to heal their brokenness then they'd begin to see the pain they caused. Because right now all they can see is the pain they feel.

    Hate Is Hurt

    That's when we give away our liberty freedom and power and trade it for safety from people who may not have our best interest at heart.
