Gratitude Journaling Meditation

I've been reading through some old journals, something I like to do every year or so to see how far I've come in my healing journey, and came across a gratitude writing meditation. Spending time alone with myself and my thoughts has been a crucial part of my ability to heal. I've never enjoyed the completely silent, watch your thoughts as if they're little popping bubbles of meaningless words, type of meditation. Maybe I'm not there yet. Maybe I never will be. That's okay.

The Good Marionette - Part One

The story begins many, many years ago, but in the essence of time we’ll jump ahead to a picturesque fall day in small town Georgia.

From Mold Illness to Mindfully Healed, Part III: Recovery

This topic is the thread that tied the last decade of my life together. The more noise those of us affected can create, the more unwitting victims can be helped.

The increasingly common, and often hidden toxin has been underestimated for far too long. Relegated to a mere nuisance for those with overt allergies or sensitivities, mold lurking in the basement, behind paint and baseboards, in AC ducts, and under carpets may be wreaking more havoc on your health than you realize.
