I was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder
& I was also experiencing an eating disorder
that no one knew anything about; night eating
Why would someone spend
1000's of hours designing & keeping up these websites to offer free information to others?
I have to reply - "You're absolutely right! It
does take many, many hours each day to work on these sites. I'm a mother, a wife & an individual who has tons of
personal work to do as well as the usual family responsibilities!
How would I find the time? I knew that if I made the
commitment to myself to keep up these sites... I would HAVE to do it....
Why do I do it? I use the opportunity to combine
my own recovery - personal growth journey with an important concept that I've made a commitment to:
"Helping yourself thru helping others..."
I was so excited when after years of searching for the answer to my everyday question, "What's
wrong with me?" that I felt determined to show others that if you don't quit & you know the path to take, you can find your answers as well!
My immediate concern
at that time was "mental health
." While I didn't know what was wrong with me, I did have one medical specialist tell me that my physical pain was due to
a "mental problem."
I didn't quite understand
it all, I was wallowing in many different symptoms of mental illness like panic attacks, severe anxiety & finally
my eating disorder symptoms of waking up numerous times in the night to eat.
Just as you may have seen recently
on either public service television commercials
or in your doctor's office waiting room; mental illness can manifest itself in physical symptoms that include many sources
of discomfort. I was also experiencing the symptoms of "irritable bowel syndrome," that had started early on in my life. So
I'll start with the mental health site that now exists within the network:
I've reached a point
in my own personal recovery
& growth journey that I believe
I can describe accurately most of the emotions
within the emotional feelings network of sites
without using any information from anyone
the ruination of the "extremely emotional
site - I had to stop & ask myself - remembering to be aware
of what's happening in my present moment
"Why did this happen to me?" (the unreasonable ruin of my site, of
Choosing to seek a positive
return for a negative
energy passing my way - what would the positive
ramifications be of having to go through every single page of a network of 28+ sites to delete the links to my ruined site?
now that I think
of it... I've asked myself that question quite a few times before... "Why did this happen to me?"
& I searched & searched for an answer, wasting time & positive
energy on something very simple... Life is what's happening. Just look to find the positive
about it instead of the negative
This is what I am looking for now
in all aspects of my life. I'm looking for the "positive
" reasons things happen. I remember what I've learned from my past to be prepared to have to confront negativities
with my re-gained "power
" on my side now instead of the enemy; but I choose now to look upon the face of countenance instead of upheaval.
After pondering a few days
on this subject, while going through every page
of the emotional feelings site
- here - to unlink all the emotion
" thru the end of the alphabet - I realized something magnificent.
"This is my opportunity to take the time to check ALL linked words to be
sure they're being directed to the correct places. This is my opportunity to re-check spelling & grammar. This is my opportunity
to try to express in my own words - the most meaningful knowledge I've recently acquired!
I'll write what I've learned
about the whole cake, almost 6 years of growth - not
just reveal a the first piece of the cake! - I still offer other author's works to explain situational inferences
I'll try to the best of my ability
to explain the importance
of every emotion
. I'm honored
you chose the emotional feelings network of sites
is coming along.
it's the replacement site for extremely emotional!
thanks for your continued patience with me as it takes so long to re-establish all the underlined link words
as well as building a new site!
Take a brisk, early morning
walk in spring & summer when the streets are quieter than usual, so you can hear the birds, smell the fragrances &
feel the fresh air on your skin. If you have a backyard, sit quietly in the early morning light. Absorb the beauty that is around you.
When you meet people during
the course of your day, say good things. Instead of complaining, commenting: how annoying the weather is, how bad the restaurant is, how lazy your family is, how rotten you're feeling, etc., try to make others feel good about themselves.
How to Wake Up & Smell the Roses
By Debbie Mandel
Intellectually, we know
that everyday is a good day. We're well acquainted with the proverbs: the glass is half full instead of half empty & it
could always be worse.
many of us just don’t feel that way.
According to the gardening
calendar June is the month of roses heralding the balmy, sunny days of summer, ocean breezes, picnics & pine tree
country weekends. So why don’t we feel that same sense of joyous, childhood wonder?
Instead we continue
to worry, feel angry & victimized, or inhale an inexplicable, almost indescribable sadness.
Never mind the cup being half-empty, many of us claim not to even hold a cup!
The reason for all this
negativity can be explained by the question:
How often do we act
on an urge to do something creative or fun?
Many of us
don't surrender to a moment of pure, uninhibited joy. Sometimes we feel that others will criticize our ideas or our different ways of doing things.
Some of us feel
like we haven't succeeded materially or don't feel like whole individuals in the presence
of others. Therefore we're greedy for compliments:
When we don't get them,
we don’t measure up.
The first step towards perceiving & delighting in
the little things is to become a whole person. That means we don't need anyone to complete us & validate us.
It's easier to
discover happiness all around us when we feel complete & in balance. Zen philosophy claims that enlightenment is contained in a single flower because when we appreciate a blossom, we've become spiritual & focused. We've found happiness in nature & in our own nature.
The following are
specific suggestions to help us smell the roses. I've tried each one personally to make sure that they all work.
When you utter cheerful comments, others become energized & that energy returns to you.
- Dress to suit yourself. Mix & match clothes that express
who you are today. Wear colors that make you feel uplifted or relaxed. Treat yourself periodically to new accessories to feel special; give yourself these gifts.
In fact, find an accessory
that expresses who you are - that people can identify with you. It could be as simple as a fragrance which is unique to you
or an animal necklace that you always wear. The animal represents you - who you are or who you'd like to be.
- Exercise to the point of being in the flow. Moving as one complete unit mind & body - effortlessly generates happiness & inspiration. We're more receptive of intuitive signals similar to a moving meditation.
- Eat slowly. You don't need a fancy, expensive dental contraption to help you eat slowly. Create an attractive place setting & use a small spoon
& fork. Chew your food slowly. Really taste the flavors & sense the different textures. Don't eat; dine.
- Laugh about your shortcomings.
You don't need to take yourself so seriously. If you're developing your self-esteem, then you can be amused by your own nature.
- Hold yourself accountable for your choices. Don't give away your power.
- Stay focused & interested
in whatever you're doing. Do it with complete attention & care.
- Realize that you possess nothing:
When you make peace with this thought, you release yourself from bondage. You can never lose what you don't possess. Everything is a loan.
Amusement Reduces Stress
By Gini Grey
What makes you smile inside & out, tickles your funny bone & brings you to
bursts of laughter?
We all know the benefits of laughter. It gets our energy
flowing, massages our internal organs, boosts our immune system & most important, feels wonderful.
So what gets in the way of being amused more often?
Why don’t we see the humor in everything instead of being easily irritated, annoyed, or frustrated?
One of the best ways to reduce stress is to increase amusement.
We don’t need something funny to happen to feel amused inside. People
who breeze thru life, slough off problems with ease & accept life’s ups & downs with a chuckle are living in
a state of amusement.
Just as the endless blue sky lies behind every cloud, a blanket of lightness lies
behind each of our thoughts, perceptions & feelings. All we have to do is tune into it & turn up the volume.
Imagine what your life would be like if you approached each day, each person, each task &
each problem from a lighter amused state. Would you enjoy your day more, relate better with
others, move thru your work easier & find more creative solutions?
You bet! And now imagine the ripple effect this would have on your relationships,
family, work & beyond.
Answer the following questions to see how amused you are:
- What is your default mood - the state of being you tend to live in on a regular basis?
- Do you operate from a stance of anger, depression, joy, victim-hood, amusement, peacefulness, fear or what?
- If you’re not sure, ask yourself how your friends & family would generally describe you as this may give
you an indication.
- Is this the default state you want?
- If not, what would you choose?
- Who or what controls your state or mood?
- Is it dependent on others around you, circumstance or do you bring forth your own true self no matter what is going
on around you?
- What gets in the way of you being amused more often?
- What would you have to let go of in order to lighten up?
- What would you have to accept?
- What would your life be like if you had more amusement?
Apply these tips into your life to enhance your amusement:
- Many people are offended by many things & all this does is put them in a bad
mood. You can choose to be amused instead of offended. The next time you're about to judge something or someone (including yourself) ask yourself how you want to feel. Then ask how you can view this person
or situation in order to feel this way.
* Practice being in a state of amusement – it is a simple flow of energy that you can control. Imagine turning up a dial for amusement in your body. Let the energy of amusement vibrate thru your whole
body, inside & out. Imagine all of your cells are laughing with each other. Notice how you feel when you do this.
* Each day when you wake up set your intention to go through the day in a state of amusement. If you find yourself getting off track into negativity, focus on the feeling of amusement again. If you need to, think of something funny to jump start this flow & let it grow from there.
Notice how your life changes when you operate from a place of amusement.
