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...

Left Leg, Left Hip, Left Ankle, Bach Flowers

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.

Burns and Safely Expressing Anger

I am sheltering in place, suddenly going from living alone to living full time with another person in a different state living a totally different lifestyle, and my body is constantly giving me little alerts about what I'm feeling. I know in my heart of hearts that we are all meant to love one another and accept that we are all different and wonderful and unique, but sometimes a memory of my past is triggered and I feel a strong emotion that I do not necessarily want to express.
