Manic Depression

By Friday, January 23, 2015 0 No tags Permalink 0

Manic Depression's touching my soul, I know what I want, but I just don't know how to go about getting it. Manic Depression's a frustrating mess. Jimi Hendrix - "Manic Depression." Anyone who's ever suffered from Manic Depression or as it is often called Bi-Polar Disorder can relate to these verses. My journey with bipolar began when I was 15 years old.  I went days without sleep, I had grandiose thoughts, I was paranoid, racing thoughts, I couldn't stop talking, I remember writing and writing and writing, who knows what (wonder ...

Part II Are you currently at your Rock Bottom? Do you remember being there? Do you still feel it is ahead of you? Well, here's a little glimpse into my rock bottom which happened in around 2009/2010.  This was just after I was homeless sleeping in my car, I was staying in a foreclosed house, and I was unemployed.  What I'm about to show is very personal and I've always known I would share it, but I just didn't know when would be the right be time. ...

Can The Cards Tell You Your Destiny?

My opinions of and interactions with Astrology have been limited. I've taken note that I'm an Aries, but I rarely as in basically never read my horoscope. It isn't that I would say I don't believe in it, I've just not formed much of an opinion either way. I've been to a psychic once and she said some things that turned out to be true, others I'm not sure on. But... I was reading someone else's FB page (Heka Activated) and they were talking about Destiny Cards. ...

Getting a “Quickie” (Meditation) In

By Thursday, March 24, 2011 0 No tags Permalink 0

In our fast paced world, sometimes it is great just to have a quickie. While this is true for sex, it is also true for meditation. So at those moments when you feel like you are always running 100 miles a minute and just have no time to possibly do something like meditate, even if it is in the midst of what you are doing, start to focus on your breathing and slow it down. If you can focus or close your eyes and take 10 deep ...

Concentration Meditation

By Tuesday, March 22, 2011 0 No tags Permalink 0

I hesitate talking about too many meditations, because I know when I first started meditating I felt like I needed to pick the "right" one, or the "best" one, or worse of all, there were times when I felt I needed to do them all. Please don't worry about that, just pick one, even the basic one, and just do it daily. Every day, even for just 5 seconds a day will make a HUGE difference. This next meditation is a concentration meditation. As always, get yourself comfortable, ...

It worked

Well, it worked, my head is now back on straight. I read some real inspirational words in a book I was already reading that were further confirmation that I am on the right path. I realized that I've gotten into a habit of doing a bunch of the things I know I need to do, but not all of them. So today, I review and print and post my goals on my mirror, I put my vision statement on my mirror, and I've set a date to ...

Self-Confidence Formula – Think and Grow Rich

By Wednesday, March 16, 2011 0 No tags Permalink 0

This is quoted directly from what for many is the Law of Attraction Bible, "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill, copyright 1937. Long LONG before "The Secret" which is now very popular. Of course, this science long predates that, and can be found in all of the scriptures, and far into antiquity. But first, let me quote something from the intro to this book: "In every chapter of this book, mention has been made of the money-making secret which has made fortunes for hundreds of exceedingly ...
