The other day, I had a very interesting conversation with a client. Without breaching any confidentiality, I'll go straight to the important chunk of information that I thought needed to be shared with gram fam as well. We had a discussion about what the ultimate goal of life should be. And it turned out that it is to become a truly accomplished human being who is fearlessly satisfied with the treasures she/he already possesses. These treasures can range from the riches of the world to having nothing but only one entity. And that entity is the Creator Himself. The relationship with people, if you must have, should only be that of giving. Well, mostly. The moment you begin to 'expect' back, things worsen. I often use self-disclosure as a technique with my clients and I find no shame in sharing that expectations are inevitable and I was once in that stage myself, only to find my life (or death) is my concern only. People can stalk your social media and claim that they cared but their ego would rather lead them to attend your funeral then to be there to save you. Stark naked truth yet I still have hope for people to change. But I resolved in order for that change to take place, I must begin with myself. One person at a time and giving to them what I expected to be given to me. That's the only way out because at the end of the day, I'm the only person I can change the mindset of so why not? .
The only way to let go of either pain or worrying is to live in the present moment. Pain is linked to our past, and worrying is a cause of thoughts about the unknown tomorrow. An easy way to make sure that you’re fully present is to really see things around you without judging them in your thoughts. Just observe them, what colors do you see? What noises can you hear? Smells? Learn how to listen to people without planning in your head what to respond. My life became so, so much better once I got the practice of presence into my daily routine. The present moment is for sure my favorite, most peaceful moment.
Things You Should Not Let Control Your Life! https://buff.ly/2zRaoCe⠀
Here's one of those things that you should never let control your life. Most people currently have or have had one of these things keep them from being productive, successful or inwardly present and loving of themselves.⠀
Countless people have been affected by this one. Relationship issues go as far back as Adam and Eve. With this said, do not go out and divorce your husband or wife and don’t break up with your boyfriend or girlfriend. Relationships can be great. If you have a rocky relationship try to make it work. Two is better than one right? Well yes, until it isn’t. I have a son with an ex-girlfriend that wanted to get married when we were in what I felt was a toxic relationship.⠀
At first, I told myself that it would be better for a child to grow up with both parents in the same home. I didn’t want my son to grow up where mom and dad were separated as I did. But the constant verbal fighting continued and my thinking change. I felt it would be worse to have my son grow up in that type of hostile environment.⠀
Two is better than one until it isn’t! We did not get married, and we went our separate ways. Years later, she’s happily married to someone else and so am I. In the end, it was better for her, my son and me.⠀

👉🏽What about physical pain?
🧘🏻♀️Can #mindfulness be utilized to help individuals who are experiencing physical pain, like lower back pain and neck pain?
🧐Well, yes and no.
🔎Let’s review and interpret the evidence...
✍🏽Studies are limited, and many of them focus on lower back pain in particular, since it is a major health concern affecting about 80% of the population over time.
🤷🏾♂️The research is mostly inconclusive.
👉🏽For example, through Anheyer et. al’s, systematic #analysis of the research, it was concluded that there appears to be short-term pain relief when implementing a mindfulness practice for lower back pain, but no apparent long-term relief was noted.
💡It appears to make sense, as mindfulness is really a way to accept the presence of the pain and our relationship to it; however, in and of itself, it is not a physical intervention to a physical problem, as are hands-on treatment and therapeutic exercise.
🔎Another study by Cramer et. al, found that there is evidence that mindfulness can help with pain acceptance, but again, no long term improvement in pain and #function were seen with mindfulness alone.

Today is an admin day so I have freedom to go to different places when walking Charlie, my cockapoo. A couple of hours past sun rise and the sky was gorgeous.
So much has happened so quickly this week and so many opportunities are presenting themselves that I just needed to get away from everything for an hour and give space for the thoughts.
Using the time, not to make decisions, but to simply let go of the thoughts from my head. It’s the act of trying to hold everything so tightly that causes discord for me so letting it go is essential.
I allow the thought to hit me and then simply allow it to pass.
I’m finding that in doing this only the important thought or ideas come back but sit with me in a way that brings peace to my mind.
I love how each cloud in this image has a “silver lining” like each thought, each cloud has space to move and the sun can shine though the gaps.
I felt ready to face the day. Taking only what I needed to take into it.
Bunu bir psikologdan duyacaksınız o zaman hazır olun.... açık yüreklilikle söylüyorum ki, hayatımda hepsini deneyimledim. Bolca hata da yaptım, yapmaya da devam ediyorum, muhtemelen yaşadığım sürece yapacağım da. Ancak mesele bunları yaşamak değil, yaşadıklarımdan öğrenmek. Bazı “kötü”olarak adlandırdığımız olayları da kabullenmek. Ve emin olun bunları kabullendiğimizde o karanlık noktadan çıkıp daha farklı, daha güçlü bir insan oluyoruz. Çünkü her bir rahatsızlığın bize anlatmak istediği şeyler var. Gelişmelisin, düşünce sistemini değiştirmelisin, hayata bakış açını esnetmelisin diyor hepsi özünde. Diyeceğim o ki, psikologlar da en az herkes kadar sıradan. Hepimiz bu durumları yaşayabilecek kadar sıradanız. Bizim de düşüncelerimiz ve duygularımız var nihayetinde. Tek farkımız yaşadıklarımızın bilincine daha kolay varabilmemiz belki de. Aynı zamanda hepimiz kendi terapimize gittiğimiz için, kendimizi tanımaya ve geliştirmeye daha açık hale geliyoruz. Özünde, psikologlar süper insanlar değiller. Sadece bu işin eğitimini aldığımız için yardım etme yeteneği olan ve farkındalığı yüksek insanlarız. 🙏🏻 #psikoterapist#klinikpsikolog#psikoterapi#mindfulness#psikolog
So this absolute beauty has just landed and my door. I can tell you that after ready 5 stories I'm smiling with goosebumps all over.
I watched Oprah Sunday Sessions on YouTube a few months ago and sat in front of the tv in awe. Just mind blowing and so insightful.
You'll see from my stories what a beautiful book it is. It's a book I know that I'll treasure.

Spent my morning grocery shopping in Germany whilst listening to @ralphdelarosa being interviewed about his new book, which blends trauma theory, neuroscience, and Buddhism. I nodded my way through the vegetable aisle and took notes in the checkout lane. Excellent tawk about how essential it is to get your body involved in your meditation (aka YOGA), the work of Bessel Van Der Kolk re: the body keeping the score (functioning as a somatic diary of sorts), and so much more.
Love his notion of “radical non-pathology” (there’s nothing wrong with you!), which dovetails so nicely with my thinking lately about the pathological malignance of the Christian doctrine of Original Sin. Not to mention his emphasis on treating ourselves with gentleness and curiosity vs judgment. Made me feel more certain than ever that a meditation practice must go hand-in-hand with any kind of traditional therapy. (And dare I say, might even be more effective.)
So much goodness from Buddhist meditation here. Could quote it all. Instead, read the book, listen to the interview over at @one_you_feed, and keep doing your practice. Your monkey mind is not good nor bad; it’s just your crazy-making teacher, so bless it, because making friends with that wily little primate can totally wake you up. 💗
We can look at certain industries as them being 'saturated'
Like coaching, fitness etc.
OR we can look at it like this: together we're creating a big wave of change, raising the vibe on our planet, healing our world one bit at a time.
There's still more people that need support than there is people offering it.
So let's drop the comparison, the fighting for being seen, growing our brands/businesses etc.
Let's focus on being our own uniqueness. You being the drop that is just as important as any other and work TOGETHER in raising the tide.
There's enough to go around for everyone, it's a big pond we're fishing in y'all.
Let's all put serving people as our first and highest priority. Because YOUR light is just as needed as everyone elses🙌
Breath in the love people!
Stop in this moment and feel into the here and now.
In the present moment nothing exists accept wide open space.. connect in with it for a moment and remind yourself that all of our mind stuff is just created by us (and a lifetime of yuk from other people) but essentially it’s all made up and while our experiences may shape us they still have no power over us if we choose to work with it all and learn how to become free... freedom is there - under the layers - at the heart of the lasagne of our selves.
Connect in to your free feeling place and breath here for a mo. Saying ‘self’ on the in breath and ‘love’ on the out

I grown impressed, fan and observational of people! 🧐
I’ve learned the why and the reason behind it! .
And sometimes I think to myself, how sorry I feel for those that don’t really understand what built their personality in the first place. 🤦🏼♀️
I feel sorry to see and listen the denial of the words and the rejection of the past, the “life made me strong “ when in the end those are words for the weak to abstain the pain that built that shield, and those who live that way have now forgotten the reason and are afraid to explain what they can’t really understand....themselves! 🤷🏼♀️🙈
For you that feel weak , cry while you sleep...
For you who feel the pain and suffer it ...? .
You are stronger than those who hide behind that mask of strength! 😊
Because strength is about recover from the pain and not hide it! ☝🏽
Masks always fall and those who wear it are also those that will never notice that they are on their weakest shape and can’t take control of their own emotional self! 🤷🏼♀️
Embrace your feelings!
Live the joy 🥰
Live the love ❤️
Live your loss and your sadness 😫😢
Own it and overcome it! 💪🏽
That’s what makes you strong ! ❤️
