Gorged on Intelligence

“Brilliant!” We all like to claim. What I’ve learned is that knowledge without wisdom is useless. Gathering information like squirrels gather nuts, we all run around trying to protect ourselves with it. Our stomachs are bloated with knowledge and our souls are sick from lack of rest. “Learn more about your pain, do more self-care,Continue reading “Gorged on Intelligence”

Mirror Mirror | Peace

Introspection — what better way to start a week. Question: How do you describe peace? Traversing childhood traumatic experiences leaves my soul wandering sometimes. It is as if it took all the stillness out of my being. Relearning? Relearn what? I was never taught anything about stillness. Sure, I had to sit still. I hadContinue reading “Mirror Mirror | Peace”

Jewels, Gems & Gunpowder

I would love to hear from you! Sharing Saturday with you. A Jewel: Healing is truly a journey — not a destination. In other words, there is no end to getting and being better, right? So often I hear stories from victims of childhood sexual crimes and they are just at the beginning of openingContinue reading “Jewels, Gems & Gunpowder”

Fear Not Friday | Do you fear those that choose darkness?

On the discussion of fear, I have a very healthy fear for those that delight in wrongdoing. Trust me when I say that there are many who like their choices of bad. They have no guilt but actually take pleasure in bringing and giving pain. Fear these folks! Nuff said.

Scars…

We all have them. Physical scars. Emotional scars. Spiritual scars. They represent having survived a harm that has been done, a damage inflicted, but they also represent a healing has occurred, don’t they? To have a scar is not so much about what you survived, as it is about how you have healed from an affliction,Continue reading “Scars…”

Mirror Mirror ~ How Do You See Yourself?

Introspection — what better way to start a week. Question: How would you describe yourself right now? The description I use for myself — to myself — determines how I am treated. In the not too distant past, I viewed myself with the lowlifes, the users, the drinkers, those that abuse themselves and others. NotContinue reading “Mirror Mirror ~ How Do You See Yourself?”

WW | Words of Wisdom | Letting Go . . . of . . . D E A T H

Suicide and death are such a common theme among incest survivors. You know why? It’s all murder, that’s why. I only saw my father a handful of times after that. He had chosen deceit and the battle between us was on. About six months before this illness, I’d dreamt that my father was milling aboutContinue reading “WW | Words of Wisdom | Letting Go . . . of . . . D E A T H”

Mirror Mirror ~ When the Mind Forgets

Introspection — what better way to start a week. Question: Don’t I deserve to know myself fully? Traumatic Amnesia Amnesia is usually the result of physical damage to areas of the brain from injury, disease, or alcoholism. Psychologic factors may also cause amnesia; a shocking or unacceptable situation may be too painful to remember, andContinue reading “Mirror Mirror ~ When the Mind Forgets”

Jewels, Gems & Gunpowder

I would love to hear from you! Sharing Saturday with you. A Jewel: I hold no contempt for my family of origin. I do not feel they are beneath me, worthless or deserve scorn. Living by them in childhood I knew something even then — they were prisoners to desires they could not control. TheyContinue reading “Jewels, Gems & Gunpowder”
