Sunday, February 8th, 2015 Focus: I choose to eliminate blame from my life.


Because blame can appear as every­thing from an arched eyebrow or a cynical sigh to a shouted accu­sation, identifying blame is not a simple task. And taking steps to eliminate it takes sustained effort. But it’s well worth it.

Time after time when I present the concepts in this book to my patients, I hear, “I grew up with so much blame in my family, if only my parents had been able to…” Or, “My first marriage was nothing but a blame-a-thon. If only we could have…” Or, “If the managers of my company could understand that criticizing and accusing doesn’t help, we’d be so much more efficient!”

The Blame Syndrome (the initial Blame Attack, the Emo­tional Impact and the Reactive Response) damages so many areas of life, and it needs to stop. The payoff of living Beyond Blame is immediate, tangible and permanent.

‘Psychiatric Drugs: More Dangerous Than You Ever Imagined (A New Video)’ by Peter Breggin MD NOVEMBER 21, 2014 BY DAVID CLARK


Peter Breggin is a very special man and has been detailing the dangers of biological psychiatry and psychiatric drugs for many years. Here is a video he posted on Mad In America.
‘We are facing a tragedy of enormous proportions! Psychiatric drugs of every kind are exposing people to long-term risks of a declining quality of life, apathy, chronic disability, and even shrinkage of the brain.
When they try to withdraw from the drugs, they are likely to find themselves afflicted with new symptoms of drug-induced harm that the medications were suppressing. Then they may find it physically and emotionally painful, and even dangerously unsafe, to withdraw from these psychoactive medications.
“Psychiatric Drugs are More Dangerous than You Ever Imagined” is the newest video in my series of Simple Truths about Psychiatry. It provides a simple, direct and inescapable warning about this epidemic of harm induced by psychiatric drugs.
It underscores my conclusions from many decades of scientific research, most recently described and documented in Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry, Second Edition (2008) and Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal: A Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients (2013).
To that accumulating data and analysis, I would add Bob Whitaker’s landmark scientific discussion of drug-induced disability in Anatomy of an Epidemic (2010).
The video sounds a necessary alarm about this growing tragedy, involving millions of people and their families, who never foresaw the disabling results of taking psychiatric drugs and giving them to their children.’

Saturday, November 8th, 2014 Focus: To become a real Spiritual Warrior, first I change myself and then work with others raising the consciousness of the group to a higher frequency.


To become real Spiritual Warriors, first we change ourselves and then we work together as a group, raising the consciousness of the group to a higher frequency.

If an entire group of people is working as a unified field of Light, as Warriors of Light, then they cannot help but change society because this Light is an Energy-field that goes everywhere, spreading outward in waves until it eventually impacts the whole world.

We must take up our responsibility and do what we are supposed to be doing as human beings.

Why You Should Care About Mental Health Oct 09, 2014 By: RADM Boris D. Lushniak, M.D., M.P.H., Acting U.S. Surgeon General


Most people don’t realize how common mental health and substance abuse problems are in the United States. Just as there are many types of physical illness, mental illness is varied and can affect people at all stages of life. In fact, at some time in their lives, nearly all Americans will be affected by a mental health or substance use disorder in themselves or their families. These are the hard facts:

Depression is a common but serious illness. Each year almost 7 percent of U.S. adults experience a major depressive disorder. Depression also affects our youth–3 percent of 13- to 18-year-olds have experienced a seriously debilitating depressive disorder.
One in 10 adolescents aged 16 to 17 had a major depressive episode in the past year. One in five young adults aged 18 to 25 (18.7 percent) have experienced some form of mental illness in the past year.
An estimated 23.1 million Americans (8.9 percent) needed treatment for a problem related to drugs or alcohol.
People with depression, other mental disorders, or a substance abuse disorder are at risk for suicide. Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the U.S. and for every death by suicide, there are 25 attempts.
Unfortunately, up to half of all people with mental illnesses and 90 percent of people who have a substance use disorder do not get the treatment they need. There are steps we can take to make a difference. Mental illness is treatable and the vast majority of Americans who have experienced mental illness recover and live happy, productive lives. They are our friends, neighbors, and families. We can strive to provide the best prevention, treatment, and recovery support services based on scientific evidence and the rich experiences of our diverse communities. We can involve individuals, families, schools, businesses and others to ensure that all Americans receive the support they need to achieve optimum behavioral health.

Long gone are the days in which we thought of physical health and mental health as separate and distinct. One is not possible without the other. I challenge you to join me in making a difference and together we can improve the health of the nation.

Sunday, October 12th, 2014 Focus: I take care of myself by going out into nature.

Life is good

Life is good


Over the years, I’ve informally polled thousands of people about the things they do to take care of themselves. Going out into nature is at the top of the list. This week, make a plan with family or friends to spend a day hiking, fishing, snowshoeing, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, sitting by a lake or a stream, camping out in a tent under the stars, cooking over an open fire, or whatever you can all agree on.

Even on days when you have to be inside, take a few breaks to walk around the block or even to look out the window. One research study found that people whose hospital rooms overlooked nature healed faster than those whose view was of a parking lot.

So, if your window does overlook a parking lot, get a plant and put it on the sill. Tend it with care. Enjoy each new leaf as it unfolds. Nature can sustain you and bring you peace, even when it’s working its magic from a pot. Nature awakens deadened senses. It has the power to bring you back to life again.

Friday, October 10th, 2014 Focus: A winning life is a product of how we play the game.

nice1
Success, like a jewel, has many facets, and it can be easy to focus on two of the most eye-catching: money and career. Important? Sure, polishing those are part of the plan.

This life game plan isn’t just about making more money, ascending the corporate ladder, or cramming in one more goal in the name of efficiency. That narrow view of what constitutes success stands between us and deeper satisfaction. With our eyes locked only on the prize, we forget that a winning life is a product of how we play the game.

Take a look at all the other glints of well-rounded success: loving relationships, community consciousness, physical and psychological health, intellectual balance, spiritual connection — to name just a few. While no single facet defines success, the sum reflects a life well-lived.

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 Focus: As I let go of anxiety, I increase my ability to take care of myself in the present moment.

Right Brain
Biologically, human beings tend to have the same basic pain-pleasure reflexes as other animals. We are programmed by our genes to contract away from pain and suffering, and to move toward pleasure and enjoyment. It’s our nature to choose to enjoy each moment. So how have we ended up focused overmuch on the agony of worrying, rather than focused on the pleasures of joyous living?

One of the main reasons is that human beings have the capacity to imagine all sorts of terrible things happening in the future, unlike other animals, who appear not to have this cognitive capacity. Whenever we’re lost in future projections and worrying, we’re not present in the here and now and, therefore, can’t perceive, respond to, and effectively deal with any dangers that confront us.

In this light, worrying can be a dangerous act. When we’re anxious, our minds and bodies tend to dysfunction. As a general rule, worrying makes us contract, become nervous and dizzy, think less clearly, and perform physically at a much lower level. When we think ourselves into a state of anxiety we actually reduce our ability to take care of ourselves in the present moment.
