Swimming in the Sea of Life can be challenging to say the least. Sometimes things happen that leave us heartbroken, desperate, fearful, filled with anxiety and trauma. Sometimes, it’s really sad or as Psychotherapists and Doctors say is depressing. Maybe you are used to waking up wishing your reality was something other than what it is. After over 40 years of helping others, and doing quite a bit of swimming in rough waters myself, I can tell you it’s all an inside game. And, if you have a way of overcoming whatever is up for you the tides will change and you will find yourself swimming in peaceful waters again. It is all about changing your reactions to whatever is happening to you by being able to establish how you are triggered and sometimes why. Then clearing mind, body, spirit of all the energy of sadness, anger, grief or whatever is there. Not only do you gain self-awareness, you learn to overcome the odds. We may not choose the things that happen to us but we can definitely learn to change our Reactions to them.
