National How to Forgive Yourself Day + Treasury

Forgiving yourself can be much harder than forgiving someone else. When you're carrying around a sense of blame for something that has happened in the past, this bundle of negativity burrowing deep into yourself can cause a never-ending, pervasive sense of unhappiness. Forgiving yourself is an important act of moving forward and releasing yourself from the past. It's also a way of protecting your health and general well-being. Here are some suggestions on how to forgive yourself.

How to Forgive Yourself - wikiHow

Self Meditation and...craft tip!

  • Whenever walking in kinhin, keep your mind totally focused on your environment, not on the thoughts that try to distract you.
  • Power breath: Begin by going for a walk, preferably alone and outside. Inhale, silently saying "Om" to the count of two. Mentally see that the oxygen coming into your body is filled with life-force energy and hold the breath in your mouth. As you force the air against your cheeks, let them fill to capacity and bulge out. Keep pressing the air into your cheeks as long as you can, without creating discomfort. Then exhale to the count of seven. Repeat this twelve times. Try doing this twice a day, gradually increasing to hold your breath for five counts and exhale for ten counts, then hold your breath outside for five counts.
  • Breathing in, be aware of the activities of your mind being calm and at peace. Breathing out, be aware of the activities of your mind being calm and at peace.

Craft Tip:

If you have a paper shredder you can use it to shred left over bits of wrapping paper to make fun and festive bag filler.

Be at ease

In meditation, be at ease, be as natural and spacious as possible.
Slip quietly out of the noose of your habitual anxious self,
release all grasping, and relax into your true nature.

Unicorn After Wisdom Teeth

Everything exists according to its own nature - our individual perceptions of worth, correctness, beauty, size and value exist inside our heads, not outside them.


And Laugh a Little...

keeping all of my ideas in one place

I am needing a place for feedback while I write my memoir. Now that I am married and have the wedding day parade behind me and now as a not so distant magical memory, I have A LOT more spare time. I will be posting pictures of the wedding and sharing all of my DIY projects that went into making every detail special and personalized.

I have promised myself that the majority of my spare time will be spent writing the long awaited memoir of Rachel Goldmark (now Lewis) and the many personalities that have all of their own stories to tell. From being dragged to the depths of hell by illness and insanity to the path of addiction and recovery. Then another lifetime of finding out that my previous path was a lie of misdiagnosed labels and being given a new illness- Lyme Disease. The cause of all of my previous ailments that everyone had failed to catch when labeling me as clinically insane. I have overcome my addiction, married my true soul mate, followed the path of helping others like me, and am currently trying to recover from a chronic, horrific and stealthy disease.

It feels like I am to fit 3 life times into 1 book. Maybe I will just have to write 3 books! Who knows. I am embarking on quite a journey to recover my past enough to piece together a coherent story.

I just might need a little help from my friends :)
