If “Anxiety disorder” is a mental illness, then are most of us mentally ill? Enter Cannabis.

Back in the day, anxiety was the wallpaper and furnishings of my mind. I (somehow) soldiered through, but living in anxiety was a way of life for me. I’d panic in social situations, I’d worry about upcoming events (that paranoid feeling of suspicion and mistrust of people or their actions without evidence or justification), and I’d ruminate – focusing on repetitive thoughts of catastrophe.

This one goes down in the books: Caught the Bug. Missed the Buzz.

I’m still sick as I write this – well maybe more high than sick since I took a WHOLE gummy to sleep. But now, I have a little energy and strength to focus and sit up. Until the sleep kicks-in. Anyway, I’m getting ahead of myself. Last week I hopped on a plane to Holland to attend a 3-day psychedelic science conference.

Try this when you can’t shake that awful feeling

What’s been coming up for you lately? Are you ruminating or obsessing about something that you can’t seem to shake? Well, I have some good medicine for that. We just completed my latest 30-day masterclass course on how to manage your difficult emotions. With that in mind, I want to share this practice with you – it gets to the heart of what’s knocking loudest on your head.

I get letters: how can I feel more empathy?

I often get letters from folks sharing their experiences and asking questions. This correspondence can offer spectacular insights and musings that answer questions that many others have on their mind. So I’m sharing this one with you today…

Is THIS the Secret Emotion that you struggle with?

I have a friend who by any measure of success has “made it”. He’s an acclaimed authority in his field; he makes good money and others clamor to work with him.

Yet, he feels as if he’s never caught-up. As a perfectionist he’s nose to the grindstone working nights and weekends but seldom claims victories.

Are there shades of this in you? If so, you may have a form of depression, what’s called cold depression, that’s the opposite of what we normally imagine depression to be.

Mother’s Day for the Rest of Us 

I wrote this some time ago for, I guess you could say, “Mother’s Day for the Rest of Us.” I hope it brings you solace.

Next week, I’ll be telling you about my brand new “old lady” tattoo, but since Sunday is Mother’s Day I wanted to share this with you. Let me know if you can relate.

Release Triggers & Trauma

Why continue to struggle as a slave to your difficult emotions? … and at wit’s end with the anxiety, the depression, the anger, sadness, and/or self-doubt that may be ruling your world and keeping you stuck and in a state of emotional pain?

I assure you that you don’t have to live like this

Learn to tame your difficult emotions

When you get to know your body like it’s your best friend, learn to listen and talk to yours as if it’s a trusted confidante and allow yours to teach you about emotional freedom – you’ll be unstoppable. 

I love this approach to reclaiming control over your emotions. And making them work for you. It’s nearly unbelievable – but true … seeing your difficult emotions as your allies. I want you to experience this remarkable approach.

I have more I want to share with you in this video…

Experience Emotional Liberation?

Whew! This month-long course has been a loooong time coming – because when I moved to Portugal from Florida about 18-months ago, I never thought it was going to take me this long to pick up where I left off in the states! So much bureaucratic red tape and just the stuff it takes to get settled!

Ink Knows No Age: My Tattoo Journey at Nearly 70!

Yes, at 68 I’ve decided to get my first tattoo. I wanted to share this with you because it isn’t just about body art; it’s a declaration that age is no barrier to new experiences (but you knew that 😉

At any rate, I’m excited to tell you about it and why I decided to do it – as well as an invitation to join me in breaking free of any constraints that you might be wrestling with.
