A Constipated Modern Society Is So Plugged Up It Can't See Straight

We Are Full of Ourselves
Let It Go!

Why do so many of us have to justify why we feel a certain way; and why do we have to explain why we feel the way we do?  I have heard sayings like: I had a good cry today.  We all need it once in a while.  I got angry because I was upset, and I know I shouldn't do that so I am sorry everyone.  What the hell!

I think modern society is so plugged up, it can't see straight!  We are so constipated, we forgot how to let go of our emotions.  Back in the past, and in many communal lifestyles today, it is natural to express - to release emotions; not to feel embarrassed or guilty about them.  In these communities, nobody justifies why they cry or why they get sad or down one day.  They just feel it and move on.  That's it.  Western societies make such a huge parade around emotions like "I did it; but I won't do it again.  I promise."  Or "something is wrong with me."

Justifying and explaining why you feel a certain way is putting way to much meaning on something as natural as a bowel movement.  The modern society believes so strongly that we shouldn't express; instead we would rather pop pills and go for some specialized treatment to fix ourselves.  Emotions are like the gut.  If they are stuck, the messy matter will rot and cause further damage to the system.

The obstruction of emotions in our body, just like the obstruction of stool matter in our intestines, is virtually the same thing.  Obstruction or constipation causes health, mental, and emotional problems.  Let GO of your emotions with pride.  They are as natural as your skin, teeth, hair, freckles, liver, and heart.  Learn to appreciate them.  Perhaps releasing our emotions regularly and with love would bring out the best in all of us.

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
