Darkness spreads to inspire fear While intuition falls on deaf ears In the empty sky, truth will pull you near Though night seems longer than day It is always darkest before dawn, they say Between black and white, there is gray The sun is not our only truth or light The verse of duality...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbN0nX61rIs I am on a Florence + The Machine kick right now. The lyric, "You can't dance with the devil on your back" really resonated with me. This entire month, I have been focused on accepting me as I am, where I am. It's helped me grow tremendously, because all the resources I had... Continue Reading →
Today’s Post on StreetPychiatry – tips on meditation!
There are tons of videos, books, and gurus that can teach you how to meditate. I am not going to write a step by step guide on meditation, but I thought some tips might be helpful. Modern psychology incorporates the Buddhist practices of mindfulness and meditation to reduce anxiety and depression. Ironically, my psychologist seemed surprised when I told her that my wellness is more dependent on spirituality than medication; meditation is my primary medication. My journey started in mental health and spiraled out.
I’m not a doctor or psychologist so I can’t talk to you about meds, CBT, DBT, ACT, except to share my experiences. From my experience, making meditation a consistent part of my life and mindset has resulted in dramatic changes in every aspect of my life. I remember thinking there is no way I can ever make my mind be quiet. I could never sit down like…

Today’s Post on Street Psychiatry ~ talking more about Chris Cornell, music in general, and feeling like my childhood is overdosing and committing suicide. I’m so grateful for the music, though.
You know what the worst part is? (For me, at least.) When I want to cry, and I can’t. I am the world’s biggest crier. I sob at beautiful flowers, songs, sad crap, funny crap, and King Kong being murdered (I’m not joking, I did.) However, right now, my eyes are painfully stinging, but no tears. I have an odd side effect to medication. I could be the saddest human being in the world, and I won’t shed a tear. I have been to funerals, completely unable to get out my sadness. I think it is related to my ability to shut off my emotions, and I suspect the medication makes it easier for me to disassociate. “I feel like a robot”
Right now, I am watching a video of Eddie Vedder and Chris Cornell performing Hunger Strike with Pearl Jam. I am dry sobbing right now. Has anyone else…
