Love Thyself First

Love Thyself First!

Find comfort in knowing that you are incredible just as you are.

Tell someone how wonderful you think they are.

No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.
by Aesop

No amount of self-improvement can make up for any lack of self-acceptance.
by Robert Holden

If you want to give love, first give it to yourself.

This Man Tells The Truth About Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

MORRIS

This Man Tells the Truth about PTSD

When I knew I had a truth about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, I wanted a solid confirmation of it.  David Morris’ book “The Evil Hours” is the encyclopedia, Medical Manual and Spiritual Source of Truth in one book.  This man wrote this book with a vengeance and  he took no prisoners.

I am a firm believer to give credit where credit is due.  I take my hat off to David.  He has a very powerful heart and determination to bring understanding and facts about PTSD.  With his personal experiences and his comrades’ take on the journey makes it quite a great experience to read his findings.

If you want a degree in knowing this disorder, his book will give it to you.  I was so thankful it found its way into my life.  Like my book, “Soldier With A Backpack Living and Dying Simultaneously”, we share our take on PTSD because we care about our fellowman.  We can be at a better place when we know somebody besides yourself gets it.  I get it, Dave get and we want anyone who deserves and wants victory over drifting through life feeling less than you have to feel.  If a person can survive with life’s traumas then it is possible for you to be that person as well.

What we allow is some privacy as you experience enlightenment to reconstruct your soul.  Here it is male and female offering you a treasured new beginning.  Let’s do this.

The Truth Will Set Your FREE

The Truth Will Set Your FREE

I am a firm believer “The Truth Will Set Free”.
Any truth is going to send you on a path to make better choices.

My first real experience of how powerful truth is was when I looked up to the sky and asked God to not take my husband,
His first and immediate answer was: “Pray for something else, I already have”.

God told me the truth with no mercy. Walking briskly in heartbroken pain heading to the emergency room,
I stopped and sat down on the bench. Something came into me and made it clear this is the truth of my life now, my husband is gone it time for a new walk with my children.

If I can accept the truth from God in the midst of my broken heart and begin to step in the best direction I can,
then I must know any truth is to my benefit.

The truth will set you free if you let it.

Move Forward

Move Forward

You need to get away from what is familiar and open yourself up to change.

Change can be very exciting.

Change is a friend not an enemy.

When you choose to embrace change life becomes a miracle.

People get “stuck” in a life they don’t like because it saves them the trouble of thinking.

No More Excuses

It is your turn to decide.

The day you decide you are more interested in being aware of your thoughts than you are in the thoughts themselves –
that is the day you will find your way out.
by Michael Singer

You have that desire because the universe also wants you to have what you desire.
You will not have a desire without also having the means to make it come true.

You didn’t come into this world to fail.
You came here for a reason and nothing can stop that from happening.

PTSD To Freedom – Mental & Spiritual Healing: No More War Within by Linda Wattley


https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CZPKXQ7/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1526008208&sr=8-2&keywords=ptsd+to+freedom

PTSD To Freedom – Mental & Spiritual Healing: No More War Within by Linda Diane Wattley

Contributors: William Sumner (Author), Anastasia Young (Editor), Cyrus Webb (Foreword), Martha Cleves (Preface)

When you experience traumatic experiences that alters your emotional and psychological foundation, you begin to experience a very personal and fragile meltdown. While all of this is happening, your body diligently works to save your life. You survived the initial shock, now the aftermath, yes that personal and dreadful aftermath. Now what?

“PTSD to Freedom – No More War Within”, will tell you to pick up your bed and walk because you are the captain of your ship.

Authors Linda Diane Wattley and William Sumner are veterans of the United States Army. They teamed up together to write this extraordinary and unique book because they both have a heart for people suffering with PTSD, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. It was obvious to them that if the male and female perspectives and resources were joined together that it would have a profound impact on the world. What they offer is powerful because the truths automatically empower the readers. No doubt, the truth will set you free!

Keep in mind, PTSD is no respecter of persons; you, me, a child, soldier, parent, friend, spouse, lover, doctor, judge, police officer, neighbor, and even a minster can be suffering with PTSD. The good news is that it does not have to be a life-sentence. “PTSD to Freedom – No More War Within” is about having complete control of your outcome and allowing your greatest self to shine.

Cold Coffee Review: We owe a debt of gratitude to our United States men and women who have served in our armed forces. This book’s contributing authors all served in the United States Army.

 I am sure that you are familiar with the term PTSD and perhaps it has wreaked havoc on your life or the life of your family member, friend or acquaintance. Are you familiar with the term PTSG or NLP?

 I encourage you to read this book and glean the information that will help you on your journey out of PTSD and give you tools to help others along their journey.

 Author Linda Diane Wattley dedicates this book to those of us who face PTSD and fight against the daily war within.

 Whether your PTSD comes from a traumatic childhood experience, military service, domestic violence, crime or accident inflicted trauma; Author Linda Diane Wattley writes, speaks and interviews from a heart of knowledge and compassion. Linda reaches out and interviews other PTSD victims from her radio podcast show. She gives daily inspiration on her website titled The Truth Will Set You Free.

I, Theodocia McLean, endorse this book PTSD To Freedom (No More War Within) by Linda Diane Wattley as a tool in your mental health toolbox to help you recognize and overcome the icy grip of PTSD. I purchased this book from Kindle. This review was completed on May 14, 2018.

Interview:

What makes you proud to be a writer from Akron Ohio? I am writing from Akron, Ohio. What makes me proud to be a writer is the fact I never gave up even though I learned by trial and error to finally self-publish my own book and it comes out amazing!  And, my writing is well received by readers and makes a difference in the lives of others.

What or who inspired you to become a writer? I love writing because the experience is awesome taking the unseen and bringing it into the seen.  It’s not anything like it. 

Did your environment or upbringing play a major role in your writing and did you use it to your advantage? Definitely!  After years of sexual, mental and physical abuse, I found a voice in writing.  And, I learned I was not the only one.  But I learned, everybody cannot interpret the feelings and twisting thoughts that result after abuse.  I can do it so naturally which makes me so grateful for such a priceless gift.

What has been your most rewarding experience with your writing process? My writing process opened many doors to embrace and be embraced by others. 

What has been the most rewarding experience in your publishing journey? Publishing my first self-published book and confident that it is a blessing for others.

Do you come up with your title(s) before or after you write the manuscript? I have had titles before, doing and after completion depending on how it all comes together in meaning.

Please introduce your genre and why you prefer to write in that genre? I had a difficult time narrowing down a genre because I feel the book is so universal but to say it is a self-help, self-growth, spiritual and psychological general.

What would one positive piece of advice you give to other authors? Know that whatever is within you to express in words, do it knowing others are waiting to read them.

Who is your favorite author and why? Maya Angelou because she was so honest.

Stop Making Your Life Complicated

Stop Making Your Life Complicated

Nothing has power over you unless you allow it.

The measure of your life will not be in what you accumulate,
but in what you give away.

Our actions and states of mind matter, because we’re so deeply interconnected with one another.
Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment,
and being love is the supreme creative act.
by Ram Dass

If you think your life is about DOINGNESS, you do not understand what you are about.
Your soul doesn’t care what you do for a living-and when your life is over, neither will you.
Your soul cares only about what you’re BEING while you’re doing whatever you’re doing.
It is a state of BEINGNESS the soul is after, not a state of doingness.
by Neale Donald Walsch

Understand what you want is already there.  You just have to let the energy flow to you.

Inner Peace

Inner Peace

After we have searched our mind and observed its many thoughts
and imaginings, we come to peace.

How long we enjoy this peace is another story.

All it takes is another thought or demand placed upon us
due to our daily choices of responsibility.

We move from one state to another mentally
and physically without thought to our state of mind.

Peace is only required when it is time to rest for the night.
But the key to health is peace of mind.

When we have peace we make more positive choices with our lives.
The key is:  move with a mind that is at peace or don’t move at all.

God promises us He will keep us in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him.
In all we do, do with God awareness.

Peace

Love Can Heal The World

love can heal

Love Can Heal The World

We are facing a world crisis that will continue to grow as long as we deny the power of love.  The lack of love breeds a ground for war.  Where there is war, we find desperation.  Each soul is born to bear love.  No love means no life.  The world is a cancerous monster right now denying love.  There is no way we can move forward and have hope for the future for our children if we do not face this epidemic.

What has happened to Paris is a reality check for mankind to seek a better way to exist.  God and Love are one and the same vibration.  The lack of it in any individual soul is creating a future of extinction.  We must ask ourselves why we have so much trust in the world’s knowledge when it is contrary to love and togetherness.  Our soldiers go to war, return home to a war they can not win because they would go to jail and to hell for defending themselves against selfish and greedy people.  They walk on land filled with hatred and self-righteousness.  There has to be individual change if we want hope in America.

Love is possible once people realize it is okay to love without loosing.  You love by allowing God to sit in your heart.  You deny the things of the world that keeps you uptight and selfish.  For sure, Paris is experiencing PTSD just as we are here in America simply because sudden trauma has visited their land.  Rape, murder, molestation, abuse, attack of any kind and natural disasters go on daily making our land a place of fear and desperation.

If we do not personally allow God to be the heart of our lives, love is denied resulting in a continued war zone.  Today let go of the world and allowed God to restore your heart and if He does not need to restore your heart, allow God to increase your love flow for the sake of your fellowman.  I am not asking you to be a fool, I am only asking you to be love and trust God to protect and guide you through this life time.  LOVE WILL NOT BE DENIED.

Entertaining Way To PTSD

ellisaWhen I read “Eye of the Beholder” I wanted the whole world to read this book because the author went deep within herself to present it which allows the readers to go deep within themselves. I am not mentioning this book for commercial reasons. I am mentioning this book for soulful reasons.

This book gives you the hardcore reality of PTSD from the standpoint the main character is a soldier with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. This soldier had it prior to going to war and it escalated as he lived the horrors of war. This man ‘s face was disfigured which landed him into the hands of a deeply spiritual woman who knew greater is the he of him on the inside than the he that is on the outside.

Reading “Eye of the Beholder” reminded me of how our soldiers are tended to by nurses with hearts and skills to cross our soldiers back to life knowing their lives will never be the same. Reading this book wakens everything possible inside of you, aspects goody two shoes people wouldn’t get yet be stimulated. The fact the writer knew sensuality and spirituality handled correctly and with love brings out a tremendous healing totally.

I had to share this with you because I know God wanted you to know about it. There are all kinds of avenues to get to a better place with self. This indeed is one of them.
