Obeying Puppy Dog

Obeying Puppy Dog
Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh

Do you notice that when you make a decision to do things differently, like taking action in following your intuition, there is this negative friction that starts trying to pull you back in to your old patterns of habit? Well it's happening to me right now. I have been waking up at 4:50 every morning, doing my visualizations, rampages of appreciation, meditation and then working out by about 5:30 am. I made a big commitment to myself. To be more self-disciplined with my inner wisdom. To follow through, so I can let go of some of the "what ifs." My day is full with more studies, now, and of course my business too, so this schedule is taking me away from the comforts of my home. And some people don't like it!

Most of the time I was able to do business and studies at home, so I was able to tend to things around the house, like the dogs and the usual maintenance. Now I can't. It's not that things are chaotic, they are just different. Others are noticing the change. I don't mind it at all, but not everyone does.

What do you do when you have a dream and you begin taking action on your desires but you feel the tension from others because they don't like it? Will this tense feeling make you go back to your old ways, pleasing your friends or partner, like a puppy dog, because you don't want to have or feel the conflict? I've pretty well had enough of pleasing others. I'm getting used to feeling uncomfortable and dealing with adversity because I've realized life is too short. And you know what, I really and truly desire to fulfill my dreams. I know they exist. They are all out in the Quantum Soup of unlimited possibilities stirring up and ready for manifestation.

Stay focused, be happy, believe and have that ineffable faith that you have everything you desire. What you desire truly desires you. Others that have lost sight of who they are like to pull you down to where they are so they can feel comfortable, maybe even have that illusion of security. They see you in action, courageous and daring, fulfilling your dreams, becoming stronger and more confident each day. They may be scared that they may lose you, and that can be true too.

But will you hold yourself back to satisfy someone else's need dishonoring yours? For many years I have done that. Have you? My time has come and I hope yours has to, to continue to move forward. I'm no longer looking in that rear-view mirror, the replication of my upbringing.

Throw Out Balance and Replace it With This

On the internet running through blog, Facebook, and IG posts or videos, there is always a wave of the same concepts of discussion each week. One person/business throws out an idea to talk about that week, and then many others (to figure out what they can discuss, post, or video that week) grab onto someone else's topic and put another spin on it. That's it. If you pay close attention to the posts, you will see what I am talking about. Take a look at the weekly discussions and see the uniformity in the topics of discussion, including the quotes that are posted. Perhaps it is coincidental. Perhaps it is collective energetic thought that brings this about. But, in most cases, I'm thinking it may be more about "What do I talk about this week?" and then grab an idea from someone else.

It is difficult to find weekly, let alone daily, topics to discuss and, at the same time, give good value to your audience. I get that. I've done the same thing. I'm guilty, but…

5 Strategies to Support Trauma Survivors


There is no single treatment for complex trauma such as PTSD or Complex PTSD, but the cornerstone of treatment is building a collaborative working relationship with the survivor. They need to restore safety and trust in human connection. The major drawbacks to healing from chronic trauma and C-PTSD is isolation. If individuals fear coming forward (due to stigma, minimization of the events, delayed reporting, an oppressive society, self-shame or public shaming) and how they may react to their environment, they are left to figure things out on their own. There are many individuals that never receive formal treatment and, instead, invest in their own methods by trial-and-error. I did because there was nothing out there. Also, anytime I'd go to the doctors office, it was said that "It was all in my head." Back then in the 80's and 90's and early 2000's, no one could see the enduring effects of chronic childhood abuse, repeated sexual assaults…

Our NOW Is Littered With Our Past

"Trying to resist, change, or avoid the enormous influence of the past keeps us foolishly focused on it. Yet we're reluctant to leave it behind, reluctant to transform the pervasive hold it has on our present-time lives. Not doing so, however, results in an endless continuum of living a "now" that is littered with the detritus of the past. There is no better arena to watch this play out than in our relationships."~Nancy Zapolski
