The Silent Treatment

There is a common form of self-destruction and communication dysfunction which is well known as “The Silent Treatment”. It also goes by the name of “ghosting”, as one no longer reaches out or responds to communications and appears to have “died” or “fallen off the face of the earth”.

Your Everlasting Personality

Is your personality a facade?

What are you really?

Does your soul have a flavor?

lionsThe answer really depends on how one defines the word “personality”. I define personality as a set of preferences. Masters such as Buddha and Jesus had clear personalities, which caused them to make very different decisions with their lives.

Do you subscribe to the Happiness Myth?

happiness_balanceThe Declaration of Independence of the USA has within it an imbalanced priority, which no one is talking about. We have all fallen into the trap, and yet most people still don’t know that it even exists.

It touches almost every aspect of our lives. It could be driving our actions right this minute.

Do you know what it is?

“Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

Did you catch that? We were fed a belief, passed on from the year 1792.

We were programmed to believe that we are to pursue happiness.

Anger is Creativity Waiting to Happen

creativity_waiting_to_happenAnger is a powerful force. It’s seen as quite taboo in our society today – people are regularly shaming others, saying things like “don’t be angry” or “don’t make a mountain out of a molehill”. The truth is, if it feels like a mountain bursting from within you, swallowing it can be incredibly damaging. Have you ever tried swallowing a mountain? Usually it doesn’t work out so well.

Our Inner Insect

beauty_in_nastyWithin us lies the capability of embodying (AKA Role Playing) as any type of energy that we so choose. If someone says “Act like a rock”, you may go curl up in a ball. We are naturals at mimicking energy because this instinct was built into us to learn how to survive in a pack.

We are sex

We are all sex. We are pure, innocent, whole hearted sex. Nothing in this world isn’t sex. A concrete manufacturing plant outputs concrete just the way we output babies. When we make tea, we are sex. When we allow others to help us, we are sex.

Creating the Presence You Want

We all want to BE MORE PRESENT in order to get things done and move forward in our lives. And we are constantly told the value of PRESENCE. But what is it exactly? We made a video to demystify this topic!

On How this relates to Cannabis Users:

Cannabis amplifies intention. Either the intention of our subconscious mind (a reaction) or the intention of our conscious will. If in our cannabis sessions we don’t decide what we want to create, we will undoubtedly fall into a cycle of unhelpful and unproductive reaction.

On Being Seen

being-seenThe basics of authentically being seen

Most people have a fear of being seen for who they really are. People also typically crave attention of some kind, at the same time. This interesting combination creates an internal environment in which we behave in a slightly or extremely forced way to subtly manipulate the perspective of others around us. Being seen authentically by others is so important for the healing process, because we are so accustomed to hiding that this actually shows us who we really are.  By being seen in an authentic way, we tend to attract people who yearn for truth and we drive away people who prefer to hide. By receiving the reflections of other humans, or other animals (such as horses, dogs, and cats), we perceive a more startling reflection than a mirror can ever provide us.

Power Struggles

Option 1) Have this blog read to you:

Option 2) Read it yourself:

In relationships with our family, lovers, or friends, there is a game that is very often played. This game is ‘Who’s the Parasite?‘. In order for someone to determine if they are involved in playing this game, one can simply ask themselves, “Do I ever avoid looking bad?” and, “Do I ever accuse others of…anything?” Games can be very helpful, or very damaging. This happens to be quite a destructive game, which psychologists refer to as “Narcissism”. If you’ve ever heard the phrase “You can be right, or you can be happy”, this is speaking directly to narcissistic tendencies.

3 Things We Learned from Our “Other” Folder

Other FolderMetaphor time: When we receive Facebook messages from someone outside of our Facebook network, they are automatically compiled into a folder entitled “Other”. This indicates that the message inside this folder may not be relevant to us.

Facebook is attempting to spare us from inconvenient or unwelcomed information. Sometimes, however, messages from wonderful new friends don’t make it to our primary inbox – they get sent to the “Other” folder through this automatic filtering process.

4 Ways We Can Stop Poisoning Ourselves With Passivity

SONY DSC

Let’s talk a bit about passivity – one of the most misunderstood modes of being in our modern day. Passivity is often misunderstood as kindness. People intending to be polite often keep their mouths shut about their needs in order to ‘not rock the boat’.

While there are benefits to keeping up with the status quo, it is our authentic self that suffers at the expense of pleasing others.

The name of our company, True Participation, is more than just “fully” participating. “Truly” Participating means that we are honoring how we feel at our core. If we are being true to ourselves, it means that we have our own backs, and that we can trust ourselves to act (or refrain) in a way that we will feel good about in the future.

Here are four simple reminders of how you may honor yourself by speaking your truth:
