How We Fight Our Battles Matters

I have come from a place of innocence through ignorance to insight, understanding, knowledge, and awareness.  I am moving to enlightenment, wisdom, and illumination.  I am a life long teacher and learner. I was born a warrior. That is a good thing, because I have fought hard for myself. I was recovering from physical, sexual, emotional, and religious abuse. I was gaslighted into thinking my loved ones were only doing what was best for me.  I was brainwashed by religion to the point where I completely lost myself in the process. Racism and bigotry colored many of my thoughts, words, and actions through my unconscious mind. I honestly could not help myself.  I was a perpetual victim, always and innocent victim of u

 If you are in a relationships now and you are experiencing abuse of any kind, think twice about the relationship. There is a phenomenon that is called the Dark Triad.

As far as we can tell, Homo Sapiens have been roaming the earth since 300,000 BC. The earliest Homo Sapiens, Archaic Homo Sapiens, are found in archeological digs in Africa along the east coast. “What does the name Homo sapiens mean? The name we selected for ourselves means ‘wise human’. Homo is the Latin word for ‘human’ or ‘man’ and sapiens is derived from a Latin word that means ‘wise’ or ‘astute’.” Homo sapiens - modern humans All people living today belong to the species Homo sapiens.

Wellness through Radical Self-Enquiry

Image
Self-enquiry is not a skill usually taught to children. Some parents care enough about their children to teach them how to do this. They ask questions which lead with curiosity, questions which wonder about what  the child is experiencing on the inside. Self-enquiry is the quickest way to emotional regulation, managing negative self-talk, and managing sensory stimulation. The key is when activated by anything, pleasurable or painful.
