Happy Valentine’s! How Much Do You Love Yourself?
With Valentine’s just around the corner, we often turn our attention to “that someone special” or romantic love. Intimacy and connection with others is important to us, but how much do you love or even like yourself? After 7 years of providing deep emotional support and healing after being trained in “Emotional Clearing”, a form of interactive guided mindfulness meditation, similar to Vipassana, a Buddhist meditation which means “clear-seeing”, and what Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction is based on, and providing Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), I have witnessed how all types of emotional, psychological, spiritual, and often, physical pain go back to how much a person loves and accepts or rejects…

Where Are Your Wild Things?
I recently watched the movie Where the Wild Things Are. I really liked it. It was so artistically created, and I enjoyed discovering a story about a boy who was frustrated and upset with the way things were going in his life.
