My vision of this blog!


.
.
.
I envisioned an action blog, a blog to practice healing, taking action daily and where questions and direction during this journey were discussed.
.
Seems to me more people heal when there is participation, when a nice flow of give and take, question and answers are available.
.
In my opinion, if we are doing the daily work of using mindfulness and applying it to judgments, desires and triggers, questions are plentiful.
.
I am just a layperson, a former sufferer of C-PTSD and chronic pain, who has a unique skill set, developing willpower from surviving my abuse.
.
I am approachable, safe and compassionate in my interaction with viewers.
.
I have read over a 100 books on trauma, the adrenal stress response, dissociation, mindfulness, meditation, a plethora of other survival traits, and personally dug my way out of hitting bottom by using and perfecting the path.
.
Please feel free to comment, ask questions or give an opinion.
.
Maybe share a unique way that has benefited your recovery, a small slant that has helped you cope.
.
We all share this trauma journey together and the concept of Paying it forward speaks to me and those I have interacted with.
.
Happy healing and thank all of you who support this loving kindness offering of my gift of healing and support.
.
Marty

    I just wanted to say how much this blog has helped me. I check it every morning. I feel I am traveling on the same healing path.

    Mindfulness meditation has been huge in my recovery. I tried meditating for years and it was difficult, but mindful awareness especially of what my body is experiencing has been nothing short of epiphanic! I never was aware of how my body felt, how it stored emotional energy, how it could be released if I let it go. When I get the signs of emotional energy ready to be released which for me is a coldness in my chest and then shivering, I am delighted. It may not be comfortable temporarily but when it is over, I feel so much better. Thank you for this blog!!

  2. A most gracious thank you and congrats in working your plan, healing living fully.

    I find joy and peace in writing this blog and maybe a ok, which always seems to stymie me.

  3. I do think a touch of humility might help–as much as you “know” you may not be aware of some things that might be helpful. After all, you are asking for involvement & many people who have had trauma have had trauma with authority figures Y may be very sensitive about sharing. . .since you raised the subject in a recent post!

  4. what does that look like to you, in actions or in a post? Humility?

    I have no letters after my name or try to assume any authority, I however do know and have lived this journey and recovery, then beyond.

    I hope posts like this open up a more active dialogue and I can be seen as part, not separate from my viewers.

    Everything I opine I live and practice daily, I am not above or below anyone here just a different place on the journey.

    Thank you for the input and I would like to be viewed as one of you on the same path.

    My life is not easy, perfect or without the same challenges everyone else experiences.

  5. Marty has had enormous support from reputable professionals of the value of his research and his blog. I find the comment above to be rather judgmental and you do not understand the spirit of his sharing. I see this blog as more informational not from a “authority figure”.

  6. I simply extra the RSS feed to be able to my Live messenger News Viewer.
