A quick announcement
New Dr. Mercola article and a live interview on PRN at 1pm EST
This is a quick note to share two time-sensitive things.
One, Dr. Mercola published my article about resisting the bullies’ attempt to steal our self-love (PDF).
What keeps us anchored when life gets rough, like it’s rough right now for so many — and when the sense of certainty is nowhere to be found? In my experience, what keeps us anchored is an active sense of purpose, an understanding of being important to others, and a cellular-level memory of joy.
When we know and remember with every cell in our body that joy is where we live — and crying is where we travel sometimes — it is easier to deal with tears.
When we have a sensory memory — perhaps from our early toddler years — of being loved in totality and completely secure, then during the times of our confrontations with various monsters we fight not like hunted animals but like loved children fight monsters in a fairy tale.
We look at it as going through a training course, an adventure. We fight with a total sense of dignity and self-love, with a sense of purpose and entitlement to victory — with a sense of having the authority to appeal to the higher powers and ask them to help us win the war and then heal from any battle wounds.
And as we fight the tricky monsters like loved children fight monsters in a fairy tale, we know that there is a sweet home waiting for us where we are loved through and through. Loved with our acts of courage and our imperfections. Loved completely. Loved from head to toe, even our little pinky toes. Unconditionally. Totally. Through and through.
That feeling of being loved, protected and worthy of love is our spiritual “immune system.” We usually know it intuitively as very small kids — and then, after being through some “rough times” and though bitter disappointments, we often have work on regaining that feeling almost anew as adults. But once we regain it — oh it’s beautiful — we also remember how beautiful is has always been, and how ultimately invincible we have been all along. We just needed to learn.
It so happens that I also interviewed Jeremiah recently, and posting an interview with him very soon.
I look forward to talking to Jeremiah, and to hearing from you if you want to call in. The number to call at 1pm EST is 888-874-4888.
