Creativity Heals, Soothes and Grounds the Empath

Quotes from my book: Recovering and Healing After the Narcissist: “Creativity is occurring every moment, whether we are awakening, asleep or dreaming. It is a transpersonal experience that redeems us from our life histories.”

“”Imagination is our creative engine. Like a sense of humor imagination is unique to each person, our creative DNA. 

“Encourage the flow of your imagination Be open—there are no rules, limits or boundaries. Follow where your imagination leads you.”

Creativity’s Messengers:

Dreams are a great gift of the unconscious and remain mysterious. Some record their dreams and analyze them. Dreams are the secret to the unconscious. 

Intuitive Sight – Intuition is always with us. It moves faster than the speed of thought.  Intuition always reveals the truth. Honor and pay close attention to your intuitions.

Nature is our home  – the epitome of beauty. We are observers and participants in Nature.

Each season, each day, each moment is unique and beautiful. 

What are your fondest memories of Nature as an adult, a teen, a child:  Each tree is an individual yet they communicate with one another.

Remember the Moon at night and the glorious presence of the Milky Way. 

Notice the magnificence of the colors of flowers – their unique shape and relationship to one another. 

Remembering weather of all kinds: Cold, dark, windy winter,  Remembering the heat of Summer – Coping with high humidity, 

Remember falling asleep outside on an autumn afternoon .

Being at the shore – sky and sea met. Each day watch the life throughout the year 

Here comes the Winter’s shift with snow, ice storms, torrents of rain, thunder and lightening. We feel comfort and soothing when we put on comfortable clothing when we have been cold.

Spring comes with the multitudes of birds, profusion of flowers — magnificent experience.  Color is a great blessing and Nature keeps us in the present.  

We are part of Nature and over hundreds of thousands of years Nature has been our companion, source of necessary sustenance, beauty, creativity, a great companion and friend.

The Feeling of Being Limited – Especially Financially -TPS472

In today’s episode, I explore the idea of feeling limited, which I see as a corollary to feeling oppressed. I relate this to feeling financially limited. There are other emotions that can be part of feeling limited such as powerless.


I recognize that when I don’t have the funds I think I need, I feel limited. People often feel limited financially.
The glass ceiling is a feeling of limitation.
Limitations can be external or internal. I explain.
What are your physical limitations?
When you face physical limitations, you have to decide if you want to push through or not.
The internal limitations can be on the feeling level, such as feeling tight or constrained, which might be expressed as “money is tight”.
What do you perceive is your limitations, and is there some action you can take to work through those limitations and feel more expanded?
Ask, “what would I rather be feeling other than limited?”
If you recognize that you need more people, ask the question, “How can I connect to more people in a meaningful way?”
When you want to connect to more people, it’s often necessary to overlook your differences and to look for the similarities.
For now, I’m hoping that you will take some time to get in touch with the feeling of being limited.
I have found that when you get in touch with the feelings of limitation that come from difficult childhood experiences or abuse, then you can move past those feelings and expand to a different place of consciousness.
If you’re seeking financial freedom, then you have to learn how to feel free.
Are you willing to go through the process of making the internal changes that are necessary to live the life of your dreams?
Making the necessary changes is easier if you work with someone else. In this day and age, trying to do it alone just isn’t a good idea.
Once you set your intention, then what you need will show up. You just have to recognize it when it shows up.
Just focusing on money is not going to get you where you have to go. Focusing on feeling goals will make a big difference.
I talk about the energy tune-ups I do.

Learning to Deal with Disappointment

This week we’re re-sharing an episode Ned recorded after his beloved Patriots lost the Super Bowl back in 2018. His message still resonates over two years later. Whether it’s the job you didn’t get, a broken relationship, or your favorite team losing the biggest game of the year, dealing with the down sides of life can be tough.

In this mini, Dr. Hallowell talks about some of the ways he deals with disappointment and reminds us that while these negative feelings and emotions aren’t pleasant, it means you care about something. And that’s a good thing. 

Poem mentioned in this episode:

If by Rudyard Kipling

IF you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being hated, don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise: If you can dream – and not make dreams your master; If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools: If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’ If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, ‘Or walk with Kings – nor lose the common touch, if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you, but none too much; If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run, Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!
