“We are healed of a suffering only by experiencing it to the full.”
—Marcel Proust

"Whenever you feel a negative emotion be alone in a room and just sit down with it and feel. Don't judge it, criticize it, intellectualize it, explain it away. Allow yourself to feel the pain. It's okay. Accompany it - breathe into it - and after a while, you'll feel the anger or fear or sadness lose it's urgency and power. Allow God to tenderly embrace you in your pain. And then, at the right time, you can let go."
~ Bo Sanchez

The next big trend in mental health treatments? Psychedelic therapy. 01/08/2022

The next big trend in mental health treatments? Psychedelic therapy.

With precautions, “One thing we know is there may be a risk for people that have a family history of psychotic disorders. If somebody has a grandparent maybe with schizophrenia, he might not want to try psychedelics, he may have a genetic predisposition for psychosis," she explains. "So they're certainly not for everybody."

The next big trend in mental health treatments? Psychedelic therapy. Magic mushrooms for mental health? If you haven't heard about psychedelics being used as a treatment, this year may change that.

True Creativity Requires Self-Actualization

Self-actualized people do not always follow in groupthink patterns during which others go along to get along, agreeing with the family or ethnic group's ideas and philosophies while remaining willfully blind to any information that contradicts the group's mythology. 💫

True Creativity Requires Self-Actualization The most innovative people persist in the face of doubt and rejection by others.

Blessings 🙏

When I’m triggered, my heart races + so does my mind.

When I’m triggered energy runs through my whole body + the emotions feel bigger than I am.

When I’m triggered, I’m experiencing my past in the present moment.

When I’m triggered— I’m afraid.

When I’m triggered the emotional activation changes how I relate to myself + everyone around me.

When I’m triggered, I’m learning to pause.

I’m learning to witness the reaction because that reaction is not who I am.

That reaction is looking for love.

That reaction is looking for kindness.

That reaction doesn’t want to be shamed, or judged— I’ve lived that since childhood.

That reaction is looking for curiosity.

That reaction is looking for the wise, highest version of myself to see it + say “I love that part of you, too.”

Nice. 🎈

May love enter
Though each crack
Eve torn within your heart

May it reach
The hidden places within
Filling you with love

May it soften
All the parts of you
That was taught to become hard

May it show you
Just how easeful life can feel
When we live it from the heart

What the new science of narcissism says about narcissists | Psyche Ideas 05/19/2021

What the new science of narcissism says about narcissists | Psyche Ideas

The value comes in recognising the different ways that narcissistic traits manifest and the trade-offs that can occur on a spectrum of personality. No matter where we fall, we can recognise these characteristics in ourselves, highlighting the benefits and working on the negative aspects that harm our relationships and society.

What the new science of narcissism says about narcissists | Psyche Ideas What the new science of narcissism tells us about its nuances, and how to avoid its darts while gaining from its strengths

"Self-control is a typically masculine ideal, to be achieved by the repression of feeling. Feeling is a specifically feminine virtue, and because a man in trying to attain his ideal of manhood represses all feminine traits—which are really part of him, just as masculine traits are part of a woman’s psychology—he also represses certain emotions as womanish weakness. In so doing he piles up effeminacy or sentimentality in the unconscious, and this, when it breaks out, betrays in him the existence of a feminine being. As we know, it is just the “he-men” who are most at the mercy of their feminine feelings. This might explain the very much greater number of suicides among men, and, conversely, the extraordinary strength and toughness often developed by very feminine women. If we carefully examine the uncontrolled emotions of a man and try to reconstruct the probable personality underlying them, we soon arrive at a feminine figure which I call, as I said, the anima. On the same ground the ancients conceived of a feminine soul, a “psyche” or “anima,” and not without good psychological reasons did the ecclesiastics of the Middle Ages propound the question, *Habet mulier animam?*"

~Carl Gustav Jung, CW 10, par. 79
