Liberating! The Saving Grace Of God's Word (& Praying The Rosary) For HSPs, Dysregulation & Emotional Challenges

Image
In previous posts, I discussed using God's Word to help overcome some life long hypersensitivity issues ~ the result of a life lived in which I often felt thrown sideways.  At times, I felt as if my light nearly went out, or as if I was continually operating at half juice.  Off and on bouts with fatigue intermingled with the up and down emotions, feeling great and connected to all that is one moment, yet filled with remorse and regrets another.  I learned about dysregulation and CPTSD ~ labels which fit to a 'T' despite my abhorring being labeled.  I  determined to overcome my conditioned reactions and negative responses to triggers, challenging as that may be, as they are a dysfunctional near-wiring groove that takes time setting new patterns to rewire.  My driving motivation my entire life was  freedom ~ especially from these challenging, seemingly out of control emotional states.  I also desired to get out of my (mental) shell, and live more fearlessly .  My chosen th

An Awesome Advent And Christmas ~ Rosary Cathedral, Frankenmuth, Visiting Friends, Lights ~ Beautiful Pictures!

What an amazing pre-Christmas week or two I have been enjoying, filled with visiting old friends, new spaces and new places.  I don't care what anyone says about Christmas, including other Christians, I so enjoy celebrating the Christmas holidays.  It doesn't have to be about commercialism and stress filled hectic schedules.  It can be an ideal balance of being in this world, while also remembering that at some day ~ whether or not it was December 25 ~ Christ our savior was born.  For so many people to be in a worshipful celebration at the same time is part of the magic of this time of year, at least for me.   In our ongoing search for truth, we came across some intriguing videos on YouTube (and Bitchute) displaying the incredibly majestic cathedrals from around the world.  One woman's channel (Exploring Tartaria) in particular has only a handful of videos, but the imagery is mesmerizing.  The detail, artistry and majesty of these great cathedrals causes one pause, question

Salt And Anxiety, Insomnia, Hyperactivity & MORE!

Image
I'm not great at explaining biochemistry, however, it has come to my awareness that SALT could be a primary culprit ~ whether directly or indirectly ~ in many of our diseases of modern civilization, including anxiety, migraines and headaches, poor thyroid function, and hyperactivity or attention deficit disorders ~ in addition to high blood pressure (HBP), hypertension, diabetes, stomach and other cancers, arthritis and more!   In this post, I'll focus on the connection between salt and anxiety, insomnia and hyperactivity in general. Salt is a compound containing 40% sodium and 60% chlorine.  Both sodium and chloride can be found in sufficient supply in natural foods,   Yet, sodium and chloride, like fluoride , has become ubiquitous in our food and water supply to our detriment.  Fluoride and sometimes salt is also added to most toothpastes, fluoride and chlorine are added to water.  And of course, chlorine or sometimes salt is also added to pools and hot tubs. Salt itself is f

A Poem - Using God's Word To Overcome Negative Thoughts & False Beliefs

Image
Toledo Botanical Gardens Here is the poem I mentioned in my last post that helped me through some shall I say dysregulated moments.  It’s very simple, making it easier to remember and recite repeatedly ~ and the likelier I will! (recite it repeatedly, that is.)  Repetition of positive, encouraging, truth-filled statements ~ whether in our own words written like a poem, or direct from scripture ~ helps re-wire the neurocircuitry in the brain, and subconscious mind.  This is how we override the false beliefs and repetitive negative thoughts that are limiting our lives.  I chose words that best countered my false beliefs, and matched with God's word in the scripture.  Feel free to use it and make it your own, or write a poem, and feel free to share it in the comments! The verses that inspired this poem are outlined below.

Most Of Our Thoughts Are NEGATIVE: How God’s Word Can Set Us Free - Three Steps & Why It's Important!

Image
  In my last post , I mentioned that it is possible to enjoy peace of mind amidst uncertainty, strength and courage rather than fear, and freedom from group think.   By mastering your mind ~ managing what goes on between your temples ~ you can better serve God's purpose for your life.  I also spoke about overcoming limiting beliefs, low self-worth, anger, habitual worry, addictions, and a myriad of other negative mental/emotional states, including those associated with dysregulation and CPTSD.  In this post, we go deeper into mind management:  why it's important, and how to use God's Word to set you free from the mental tyranny ~ with three basic steps. How do we achieve an ongoing state of peace?  These days, it seems very elusive.  Many women ~ especially moms ~ are such habitual worriers, it's become second nature!  All of us have thousands of thoughts a day, most of which are negative, as you will read below.  So, how do we overcome? There are countless self-help an

The Path To Peace, Freedom & Fearless Living

Now that I have discussed the topic of dysregulation, and overcoming debilitating insecurities predicated on false beliefs, it's time to take it to the next step.   A visitor during a recent walk through one of Toledo, Ohio's amazing Metro parks 

Dysregulation & CPTSD ~ Revealing What’s Hidden To Heal - Parts, Triggers & Holistic C.O.R.E. Counseling

Image
In my  previous post  I brought up the topic of dysregulation and CPTSD.  My life long emotional insecurities, regrets, and various physical challenges including bouts with fatigue were big road blocks to living a more free and fruitful life that I so craved.  My challenges set me on a course of studying various forms of holistic healing and mind body health.  After years of focused efforts ~ trying different diets and therapies, and training in holistic fields including Chinese medicine, hypnotherapy, plant-based nutrition, macrobiotics, yoga and the Holistic C.O.R.E Counseling system discussed below ~ a shift occurred which led to  my repentance and becoming born again.  I wrote about that amazing experience  here .   This summer, I felt like I relapsed. Really old stuff re-surfaced, and I felt unclear about my current direction ~ especially on the heels of such an epic move .  I simultaneously came into some new information and resources which have resulted in my greatest breakthro
