Pregnant or not, the decisions to seek counseling can feel like quite the inner-battle. You are feeling overwhelmed, worrying about the same things over and over, and your stressors are outweighing your current coping mechanisms. You’ve thought about seeking counseling for months, maybe years, but actually doing it feels next to impossible.

Reiki is our universal life force or Source Energy. Invoking it, the Reiki master or practitioner expands the intensity of her focus into form, allowing that universal life force to flow through for others to take as they will. Reiki is nothing that a practitioner does to anyone. We only provide an expanded channel for Source Energy to flow.

Every article you see about self-care for bipolar disorder will tell you, Get enough rest or Get enough sleep.Sleep is that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together.  – Thomas DekkerBut what did Thomas Dekker know?

And the unsettled-from-nightmares-afraid-to-go-to-sleep thing. (Also the just-one-more-chapter thing, but that's my own fault.)

< I'd say I spent the majority of my teenage years going from diet to diet trying to achieve the perfect dream body that I had seen in so many movies and magazines.  Instead of achieving this, however, I ended up leading myself down a very dangerous path of eating disorders, depression, and a HORRIBLE relationship with food.  It took me a LONG time to recover from all of this, and, to this day, I still have struggles with food.

It was soft and it was petty. The emptiness was gut-wrenching but the movement was steady. And in plain, simple clothes I ran to its magnificence. It was after all, my own heart. - MJMWe shift things in our lives to take time to cherish. To unburden ourselves of the ideals of society and enjoy the many pastimes that make us feel the best. The best golfer, the best artist, the best swimmer.We also shift things in our lives to take a giant step backward: to wallow.Why is re-living and relying on the past so important to our present selves?
