Tools for healing…..


There are many tools for healing out in the world.  Homeopathic remedies for the physical body, therapy, counseling for the mind and art for the soul.

I have done traditional therapy and found that for me doesn’t work so well.  I have had more success with hypnotherapy, reiki and other alternative therapies.

But my mainstay, the core of my healing comes from my writing and reading the works of others.  Any kind of problem I have ever had I figure there is a book on the subject so books are always my number one go to source.

This blog has been a tremendous source of healing for me both in what I have written-which is often cathartic and what I read of others.

The keyboard is my therapist and the words that come onto the page are the feelings, emotions, ideas both from the conscious mind and the subconscious mind.  Some people write, save a draft, re-edit and then publish and maybe I should do that but I find in most of my writing that my first draft is often the most authentic and most infused with art and inspiration.

I do not know what writers block is.  When I do not write it is because I do not have time not because I do not have ideas.  I breathe and thus ideas are on going process that fill the day and distract from the mundane activities which allow me to pay the bills and feed my babies.

But yes ideas are ongoing all the time filling my mind with each and every breath that I take.  Some make it to the page and some do not but with each word you have a piece of my soul, or my heart, or my mind or my thoughts.  Who I am is in the words–even fictional characters are bits and pieces of who I am .  So my words are not just my words, they are me–they are who I am and they are symbols of who I am.  And as long as I am not in the midst of a rage each word, each syllable is a perfectly thought out nuance the first time it is written down.

Words heal and words can hurt–I know I am a Sagittarius and I have been told that my cutthroat honesty at times can be a bit much.  A word to the wise, I say, “do not ask me a question if you don’t want my honest answer.”

If it were not for the black ink that runs through my veins to create the words on paper I probably would have died long ago by the need to be seen, to be heard to be made visible.

So writing and reading are what makes me sane and whole.

The most recent book I have read that I have referenced in my post, The Face of Narcissism is,

“Women Who Love Psycopaths”  by Sandra L. Brown  This has been an amazing book and really helped me to see the big picture regarding my romantic relationships and the connections to my family.                                                                             41YdWg0CMPL__SL500_AA300_

And then you tell yourself now what?  Where do I go from here?  How do I take the information I have just realized about the continuum of my life and move forward to the destiny that I have always dreamed about it, longed for and desired?

Buddha said that when the student is ready the teacher appears.  And apparently he did in the form of a book.  The teacher is Dr.  Joe Dispenza and his book, Breaking the habit of being yourself : how to lose your mind and create a new one .


Book Description from Amazon Books:

 “You are not doomed by your genes and hardwired to be a certain way for the rest of your life. A new science is emerging that empowers all human beings to create the reality they choose. In Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, renowned author, speaker, researcher, and chiropractor Dr. Joe Dispenza combines the fields of quantum physics, neuroscience, brain chemistry, biology, and genetics to show you what is truly possible.

 Not only will you be given the necessary knowledge to change any aspect of yourself, but you will be taught the step-by-step tools to apply what you learn in order to make measurable changes in any area of your life. Dr. Joe demystifies ancient understandings and bridges the gap between science and spirituality. Through his powerful workshops and lectures, thousands of people in 24 different countries have used these principles to change from the inside out. Once you break the habit of being yourself and truly change your mind, your life will never be the same!”

This is an amazing books which goes beyond the idea of positive thinking and the law of attraction and utilizes science to explain the brain/body connection and how those connections create feelings, create emotions, create hormones which affect our frequency which creates our lives.  I am not through the whole book yet.  As you can see from the description it is not the kind of book that you can get through in one sitting.

Yes, this book has been very instrumental in my healing path. It is the final piece of the puzzle which makes sense of all the other books, videos etc… I have read on changing my life and healing and the laws of attraction, affirmations etc…etc……

I love neuroscience.  I am fascinated by how the brain works and the interrelatedness of the conscious, subconscious the body and the final output the world we create for ourselves.

This is where I have been putting my focus on for the past couple of months, add to that the music classes I am taking, my job, preparing for the two new puppies and my plate is pretty full.

I know that a certain post have led some to think that I am somehow stuck in my life but rest assured I am not.  I move forward every day trying to create/achieve a better more fulfilled version of me but in order to do that I am somewhat analytical sometimes overly analytical and that might appear as a obession.  I am like a pit bull (which by the way are very sweet dogs) when I bite into something I don’t let go of it until I figure it all out.

When I feel like, ” Oh I get it now, I understand it, I realize why that happened or this happened” that is when I can let go of something and move on to the next issue that rises forth from the subconscious for healing.  When I feel that I have completely processed all that I need to process to move on then and only then can I let go of something.  That is when healing occurs.  And it is a process that only be guaged by the self not anyone else.  And healing is this ever ongoing process that never really ends in life.  So if you are alive guaranteed there is something to be worked on.

If you have been in relationship with a psychopath I male or female I highly recommend Brown’s book.

If you just want to change your life and have tools to manifest your divine destiny may I suggest Dr. Joes book.

Happy reading!!!!! And writing since anyone reading this is also a writer 🙂

    This said it all. I shall give you an idea…. I want you to write “What brings me happiness”…your time starts now 😉 xx

      ok will do a post on that for sure………:)

    I resonate with this on so many levels. The many times I tried therapy, the results were to only find I was right in my thinking and told that I should be a therapist — by the therapist!

    The thing is, therapy is a work in progress and I truly believe brilliant friends, an informative book and/or a good man can take you a lot faster to the next step than therapy can.

    It sounds like you’ve grown in leaps in bounds in the past few months and I am so happy for you! It’s the greatest thing to watch your friends grow into an even better version of the greatness they always were. Keep up the good work! 😉

      and fyes Maryanne I am so looking forward to having a wonderman in my life. I love reading the posts about you and your husband because it gives me an example of what a good marriage looks like–something that has been missing in my life the good models.

    P.S. — I don’t know what writer’s block is either 🙂

    It’s on my book list now!! Thank you for sharing, Ivonne. And don’t ever allow someones’s opinion that you seem stuck affect you. It’s not constructive and generally comes from someone who is actually the one stuck. We all have a tendency to project. The sooner we stop doing it, the easier it is to spot those who are and not take their judgments of us personally. It’s not about us, it’s about them. 🙂

    • Sex, Spirit, Soul Mates and Chocolate....Ivonne's Journey Says:

      Thank you Paula. Yes the two books are amazing tools. And projection is an interesting beast. I’m sure that at times I must be guilty of that as well. The human psyche is fascinating, that’s why I love nueroscience and Dr. Joes book–it just makes so much sense.

    I camped out on your blog today, catching up on your posts and I have to say that this one really resonated with me 🙂 beautiful writing, true words and some things … like not writing because of not having enough time etc. but not for lack of ideas, they really rang a bell with me 🙂 i’ve really enjoyed camping out on your blog today.

    • Sex, Spirit, Soul Mates and Chocolate....Ivonne's Journey Says:

      Well, thank you for camping out on my blog. I am glad you enjoyed it and found some posts that you resonate with. Words are like individual beings that come alive for me.
