Full Body Pain

Posted by Joanna Rubini on

Sometimes, our entire bodies ache. Whether from the flu, from an accident, or from perceived wear and tear on our human bodies due to physically demanding jobs or activities...chances are possible that the source of it is self hatred. There is no need to rush into an adamant NO here because there is no right or wrong answer. Full body pain speaks (screams) for itself. "I HATE YOU!" We are usually hating ourselves unconsciously, which can be slippery and hard to detect, hence the message of full body pain. I got the self hate disease a couple of years ago. It...

Why Am I Still Here?

Posted by Joanna Rubini on

Sometimes we feel stuck. My story is that I do not feel stuck in my life, but lately I've been having chronic dreams, unresolved dreams, mixing in past relationships, that leave me with the impression of feeling stuck again.  At least this time, I feel curious about the stuckness rather than miserable and imprisoned. Curiosity, I believe, did not kill the cat, but rather, saved her. Dreams, among other things, are a means to heal us...aka enable us to release feelings that we repressed in our past.

What Healing Ourselves Means

Posted by Joanna Rubini on

How to Heal: What does that even mean? Healing from emotional pain, from physical pain, from carrying excess body weight, from denying yourself proper nutrition, from over reacting to little things, from trauma.  Healing can happen once we allow ourselves complete ownership of our feelings.  They can be embarrassing feelings or shameful feelings or dirty secret feelings that you think should never see the light of day. Except all those feelings stay within us if we don't let them out.START:  If you want to heal, intend to feel better.  Intend to see yourself and your life differently. Next, speak or write...

Stop Self Spiritual Bullying

Posted by Joanna Rubini on

I just worked with a woman who practices Buddhism. My understanding of Buddhism is that non attachment is the way to peace. This is something that makes perfect sense especially for enlightened beings. Non attachment to anything is easy for enlightened beings. I'm not attached to any specific humans, I'm not attached to any specific material things, I'm not attached to any specific way of being safe in the world, not attached to any schedule or agenda. It is this non attachment that will completely allow source energy to dictate the flow of our lives. And if we can maintain...
