3 Spiritual Steps for Handling Your Feelings

We all have unique ways of handling our feelings, and sometimes we can let our emotions get the best of us. I’m no exception! I have the tendency to over-analyze, over-spiritualize and overly obsess about my feelings.

But we’re not at the mercy of our emotions–we just have to know how to handle them. I recently created 3 Spiritual Steps for Handling My Feelings, and in this vlog I share them with you. These steps have greatly served me, and I hope they help save you time and energy when it it comes to working through your feelings.

In this video, I also announce the paperback launch of Spirit Junkie!

The video is a bit drawn out & aimed at a young audience.

While I appreciate your intentions, everyone who has discovered the secrets to a life of the spirit doesn't feel he or she necessarily has the ability nor depth of understanding to actually write a book about it. There are so many books like this, (pop spiritual? pop guru-ism?) and I guess I applaud you if you help even two or three 15 year olds, I would much rather listen to someone who has the ability to teach and the humility and wisdom and command of the language - someone who can write or talk in ways that really inspire and open up in profound ways, understanding of self. The points you make here are not new. You are cute and blonde and sort of Cali-girl, so that might be appealing to some. It reminds me of a saying I have on the fridge: He/she doesn't have that much to say, so don't get him/her started. Your style of presentation and your use of language that is so cliched undermines your message. The repeated use of "get go", the cultural cliches, the use of authentic psychological terms when you don't seem to have the depth of understanding is again, dis- and detracting. I'm sure you are sincere, but I think your target audience is "like" (and I use that as the Valley Girl does) 14-16? I see that what I have written might seem cruel, but I just would like to see us raise the bar on the standard of rhetoric and discussion we have about this most profound of journeys - the journey of the spirit. Share your thoughts with those around you, but don't assume that what you

I have had several black cats as pets. They all made excellent pets.

So sad...I've got a black cat because someone threw him over my fence when he was still a small kitt…

Wind does cause a huge problem with plastic sheeting as I found out.
