Therapy – really?

Lorna's book
Today I would like to thank Lorna Martin who wrote the book called  ‘Woman on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown’ for showing the courage, honesty and openness to tell the story of her experience being in therapy.

Here a quote from her book:

‘Of all the lessons I learned during that bizarre journey with her [her therapist], I think the most valuable was about not suppressing or denying  emotions and not leaving important things unsaid or only partially said. I know now, thanks to her, that attempting to avoid uncomfortable or difficult feelings – whether of loss or love or rage or jealousy – leads to greater and long-lasting pain.’

Nowadays most of the book I read are about self development, the expansion of consciousness and awareness, psychologically interesting material or research in human development. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel by Lorna and can highly recommend it to anyone who thinks that therapy is for the weak and needy and selfish…

Feeling Overwhelmed?

Feeling overwhelmed is a state that EVERY person can relate to. Have you ever thought about that you might be pushing yourself too hard to get things done and not taken other support into consideration? I can definitely relate to that.

Remember: Support can come in many forms…

Here is what Abraham has to say to feeling overwhelmed:

‘A feeling of being overwhelmed is your indicator that you are denying yourself access to all manner of cooperation that could assist you if you were not disallowing them.

As you begin to feel freer regarding the expenditure of time and money, doors will open, people will come to assist you, refreshing and productive ideas will occur to you, and circumstances and events will unfold. As you change the way you feel, you access the Energy that creates worlds. It is there for your ready access at all times.’
