The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place. …
We have the ability to connect with anybody, anywhere at any time, however we seem to be losing the ability to communicate. People are feeling more isolated then ever before. Loneliness is a feeling of despair, powerlessness, abandonment, shame, depression and many other emotions that keep you locked into believing your not enough.
To compensate these feelings of loneliness, you might entertain yourself by getting hooked and absorbed into your cell phone. Everyone seems to be doing it. We can keep our heads down and get sucked into the vacuum of a screen that projects what ever fantasy, illusion or fictitious image that draws us into its void.
Don’t get me wrong, it is a fabulous way to connect if we use it wisely. Communication is about coming together, to commune. To look into someone eyes and connect on a visceral level. To talk and share your words and feelings so you can share experiences, information, discoveries and explore, create, expand, learn and grow. We can not do this alone. We do this by communication. We must begin to bridge the gap and come together rather than pull away.

During the Holidays, it might be challenging for many to feel happy or peaceful when you get together with family members due to past or present hurts and emotional pain. Emotions may come up that cause you shut down, get angry, or feel betrayed. Old wounds surface if someone says or does something that triggers you. It isn’t easy dealing with the people closest to us at times. They are the ones that can press your buttons and know what buttons to press to get a reaction out of you.
Your feelings are your best guidance system. They are there to let you know exactly what you need to heal inside of you. When they surface, pay attention to them. Don’t dismiss them by drowning them with to much alcohol, numbing yourself with drugs or stuffing yourself with to much food. Instead, read an inspirational passage in a book, watch an uplifting movie, volunteer for a few hours to those less fortunate, take a walk or whatever brings joy into your heart. If you need to dismiss yourself from the gathering to protect yourself, that too is OK.
Thanksgiving is about giving thanks, being grateful and appreciating what you do have and feeling good will connect you with those emotions.
May your Thanksgiving be filled with peace, love and joy!

The heart is the perfection of the whole organism. Therefore, the principles of the power of perception and the soul’s ability to nourish itself must lie in the heart.
Aristotle, philosopher, and scientist, 384-322 BC
Stress, anxiety, frustration, overwhelm and dis-ease are at an all time high. Life is moving so fast and change is happening so rapidly that if you don’t have the tools, strategies and techniques to navigate through all the uncertainty you will wind up feeling totally out of balance. Your heart is more than an amazing pump circulating blood throughout your body. We have discovered that it is a brain that sends signals to your head letting you know when you are out of alignment by increasing your heart beat, raising your blood pressure and downloading stress hormones that flood your body producing all kinds of negative feelings, thoughts and toxins.
90-95% of all illnesses are stress related. That’s HUGE!!! Really, I can feel when I am getting out of my natural rhythm of joy and happiness. I’m sure you can too. Allow your heart to open. Take some deep slow breaths and slow down. Focus on someone you love and you will begin to sense your heart and mind getting into a coherent state. Practice this often. The more you do the more joy and health you will bring into your life.

You are only as sick as your secrets. I want to be a part of a conversation that breaks down shame. Life happens. It’s about what you do with it. That’s were the grace lies.
Sean Corn Yogi & Humanitarian
I was brought up in a time where you kept things within the family. You know, those family secrets. My parents were first generation American, they were both Holocaust survivors. When they came here after the war, they worked really hard to make a living and raise a family. I can’t even image all the things they went through and witnessed. They had many secrets. They didn’t want to talk about all the horrible things they experienced and I can understand why. However, by them keeping secrets about their life, caused me to continue this cycle which resulted in a lot of shame and guilt that kept me emotionally captive. This is where addiction can hide its ugly self. Until I became aware that the secrets were not protecting me but keeping me a prisoner in my own life did I decide to liberate myself from them.
If you are caught up with the mind-set of what will the neighbors think, or if your afraid to shine, be different, stand out, be real, be authentic, be original, be vulnerable, Just be YOU! There is goodness in you. You are worthy! You matter! You are amazing! You are loving and you are loved!
Share your beautiful self with others. Remember if you didn’t have a shadow, there would be no light.
