Working on our balance today!
June is PTSD Awareness Month. What is PTSD? Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event such as a natural disaster, a serious accident, a terrorist act, war/combat, rape or other violent personal assault.
PTSD can occur in all people, in people of any ethnicity, nationality or culture, and any age. PTSD affects approximately 3.5% of US adults, and an estimated one in 11 people will be diagnosed PTSD in their lifetime. Women are twice as likely as men to have PTSD.
People with PTSD have intense, disturbing thoughts and feelings related to their experience that last long after the traumatic event has ended. They may relive the event through flashbacks or nightmares; they may feel sadness, fear or anger; and they may feel detached or estranged from other people. People with PTSD may avoid situations or people that remind them of the traumatic event, and they may have strong negative reactions to something as ordinary as a loud noise or an accidental touch.
If you or someone you love may be experiencing PTSD, talk to your primary care provider or call us at 617-569-5800.

As you grow, change, heal, or upgrade your sense of self you will have moments of your old self returning and that is a part of being human. It doesn’t mean all the hard work you have done is gone. The desires, fears, triggers may not fully leave but how you interact with them after all the deep work WILL change. •

El infarto al miocardio es una enfermedad común que genera la muerte de células cardiacas. Pruebas experimentales y clínicas indican que el tejido necrótico tiene la capacidad de regenerarse mediante la aplicación de células madre mesenquimales y el área infartada puede reducirse. Para ello deben realizarse implantes intracoronarios de células madre entre los días 7mo y 10mo contados a partir del momento en que se sufrió el infarto. Fuera de este período, se debe combinar el uso de glóbulos blancos del paciente, asociados a sus propias células madre.
Myocardial infarction is a common disease that causes the death of cardiac cells. Experimental and clinical tests indicate that the necrotic tissue has the capacity to regenerate itself through the application of mesenchymal stem cells and the infarcted area can be reduced. For this purpose, intracoronary stem cell implants should be performed between the 7th and 10th days counted from the moment in which the infarction was suffered. Out of this period, the patient's use of white blood cells, associated with their own stem cells, must be combined.

The amount of adulting that has happened today and is still happening= 😩...
Today was one of those days for business where I had to do the dirty work. The paperwork, banking, trademarks etc. Etc. Etc. And also do some other stuff I had put on the back burning that regarded putting in place boundaries.🙅🏼♀️
I don’t like boundaries because in my head boundaries mean conflict.
I struggle with creating healthy boundaries for everything in my life and just these past few months have I actually been able to successfully create them, thanks to my therapist.
Boundaries are so important!
Here’s why: - if you’re a yes yes yes person when you actually can’t do something or don’t have the energy to it’s not beneficial to both parties involved. You’re not going to be fully present, if you don’t put your self first your body, mind, and soul take note, and the repercussions are usually much greater than if you had just said no in the first place - you can’t pour from an empty cup. You have to fill yourself up first and everyone will benefit from this! - sometimes standing up for yourself is creating a boundary and it may feel like you’re causing conflict (if you and the other person aren’t used to it) but it’s a necessary process in life to stand up for what you believe in, in a respectful manner, because if you’re someone that lets people walk all over you like I have been in the past, then it’s time to know you’re worth and respectfully stand your ground. You will get used to it and so will they.
Every time I talk about boundaries I want to 🤮... so clearly I still have lots of work to do 😂 however, I’m way better than I was and my physical, mental, and spiritual health is on a whole new level since filling my cup up first!
I have great self-respect, self-worth and more confidence in myself than ever before ALSO the relationships in my life have never been better because with boundaries comes communication!🙌🏼
I hope this helps anyone struggling with being a “YES” person if you have any advice or questions hit me up I’ll be in my office continuing to adult!😘👊🏼☀️
There have been so many times in my life when I have elimiated stress from my life only to find it crop up in another place.
Since then, I have stopped worrying so much about trying to elminate difficult situations or challening tasks but instead embraced the tension that I feel as a way to become aware of my need to grow as a person.
Situations that used to seem impossible or unsettling now present an opportunity to explore a part of my person that I was previously not allowing myself to feel, sometimes out of fear, sometimes out of guilt.
Embrace those things that challenge you, run toward those things that will help you grow. Because, though they may be hard, they are showing you the parts of yourself that are still under developed. They are allowing you to become things you previously thought impossible.
As much as Emotional Acceptance is my source of income, it is a lifestyle. It is part of who I am.
I am on a journey with my clients and there whenever they need me.
It’s not just about one session after another.
It’s about being cared for and nurtured to make them feel safe and supported.
They know I can get them through anything.
This all stems from unconditional love, a space where there is no judgement and complete trust.
There is a bond that is felt almost immediately that holds them in this loving space.
I might dish out tough love on social media but it’s still love.
In order to feel your pain you have to feel this otherwise it’s just not going to work.
Message me if you would like to enter my domain and give yourself permission not to be in pain anymore. ❤️❤️❤️
Dwi'n gwnselydd 'Person Centred' ond yn defnyddio pob math o ddulliau creadigol mewn sesiwn. Dyma un! **** I'm a Person Centred counselor, but I use various techniques within some therapy sessions. This is one!
I use therapeutic stones with some clients, especially towards the end of their therapy. "Which stone best represents your journey"....."which message can you relate with"....."how do you feel today"....."how do you best describe yourself at this time"
Sometimes we need encouragement to identify our thoughts, emotions and feelings. These stones are a great tool for helping clients express or focus.
I let my clients hold them, and at the end of their therapy, to keep one as a reminder of their counselling journey!
We journey with you in the room, but what you share are your own emotions, thoughts and feelings ❤
Sometimes we get in this habit of internalizing everything negative and externalizing everything positive. For example: everything that goes wrong is our fault while everything that goes right is some crazy cosmic alignment of the universe and has absolutely nothing to do with our personality, strengths, or gifts. So how can we reverse that thinking? By gratitude for what makes us who we are and catching ourselves in that thought trap. How about we see the negative as some bizarre cosmic alignment of the universe unreflective of who are are, and the positives as what we earned or deserve? And how about realizing the best assets aren’t outside of us, but within us? Or behind us? 🍑 *insert booty pic*
I believe a strong woman
May be stronger than a man,
Particularly if she happens
To have love in her heart. .
❤️🧡💛 I Guess a loving
Woman is indestructible 💚💙💜

Perfect and beautiful sunset, with soundhealing and quantum therapy.
🧚🏿♀️thanks soul sister for everything, i couldn’t do this without your lovely assistance @isabelserenity
Esses dias indo para a casa ao fim do dia, comecei os pensamentos para preparação do jantar, vasculhei a geladeira mentalmente. “Cozinhar os ovos, depois aproveitar ferver o macarrão, uma salada de tomates frescos e jiló (amo jiló como salada)”, tudo organizado e antes mesmo das 19 horas estaria livre para continuar minha leitura de estudos..
Mas ao chegar em casa já percebi que tinha que resolver mil coisas antes do jantar, comecei bem mais tarde, “ovo estourou, tomate acabou e molho do macarrão queimou.” Conclusão por mais que planejamos, organizamos as coisas, das pequenas como um simples jantar, como todo nosso futuro, nada sairá como o esperado, não adianta querer ter o controle, se frustrar ou desistir se as coisas não são como queremos.
É preciso dedicação e paciência para lidar com os acasos que surgir, como você reage que fará a diferença para alcançar o que deseja... Neste dia acabei o jantar as 20 e poucas horas, tomei um banho quente, respirei fundo, um leite quente e fui iniciar a minha leitura antes de dormir.

Does anyone else experience holiday depression. Whenever a holiday comes around, I just find myself wishing i could just bury myself in a hole and skip the holiday all together. Anyone else? Friendly reminder, that you aren’t alone, in right here with you. Pray for me as Fourth of July quickly approaches, anxiety is high, I’ll be praying for you all too. Take care of yourself this season, and check on other people in your life too.
Self-care, it’s a buzz word we hear ALL the time, but for many busy, hard-working families adding self-care practices to an already packed schedule seems impossible. Fortunately, staff from Family Service of Santa Monica (FSSM) provided an entire Saturday full of culturally sensitive self-care activities for a diverse group of parents and children participating in FSSM's Early Childhood Well-being Project. From masseuses on hand to soothe away stressors to smoothie making, and playtime for the kids, participants were able to learn firsthand the benefits of taking time to take care of themselves. To continue the self-care practices at home, FSSM staff lead a bilingual workshop which included psych-education about emotional development and caregiver self-care.
Thank you so much to our event partner @communitycorpSM
(a non-profit developer providing affordable housing to residents of Santa Monica) and our event sponsors - Los Angeles County Department ornamental Health and the California Mental Health Services Authority for making this day possible.

a note to me, from me: today was fu**ing hard. trying to kick this sibo has been weird. its impossible to tell if i’m actually healing. i went two weeks feeling better than ever and today texted ian “you might need to take me to the hospital”. talk about a 180. i have no idea what’s good and what’s bad, so i’m just doing me and believing, without much backed by a plan. but i’m starting to think it’s a little bigger than just killing the bugs. that that’s not where i needed to start, or that i’m even going about that the right way. i don’t know much yet about what kind of vantage point i need to be taking, but i do know that HEALING isn’t organ specific. it’s a lifestyle, environment, perspective, whole body effort. it’s easy to focus on diagnoses and bandaid the symptoms. it takes real fucking work to turn around your mind + body + life. i’m lazy and scared, but it’s time for the real fucking work. -
things i know i need to do: 🦋 find a therapist
🦋 find structure at work and an action plan for stress
🦋 liver health comes before tackling the gut. @equilibrium_nutrition
🦋 intuitive exercise + movement
🦋 accept that you cannot do and drink and eat everything you want in healing
🦋 stop playing victim

The DEARMAN isn’t necessarily new or groundbreaking, but it can be LIFE-CHANGING when it comes to communicating your wants and needs. When you have conversations, do you have a hard time controlling your emotions? Do you lead the conversation with your anger or shame? Do you have a hard time staying mindful and staying the course? DEARMAN helps with all of this. First, it’s helpful to start conversations by describing the facts and getting on the same page as the other person - NOT leading with accusations or out of control feelings, but leading with what actually happened or is currently happening instead. Then, you express your feelings and opinions with “I statements.” Again, no accusations and no name calling! Then you assert and ask for what you’re asking for! And reinforcing is all about explaining the negative and positive consequences and showing the person the benefit of getting on the same page and doing what you’d like. And M-A-N is all about mindfulness, confidence and flexibility! Know how you’re willing to give and take. Stay the course and don’t stray. Stay in wise mind and notice when the emotions are in the driver’s seat and are so intense that they’re making you ineffective. And appear confident! Exhibit strength with your posture and voice tone.
This is a special one. My kind of therapy. My reminder to breathe and let it flow. ...
“just keep on dancing”
I’m far from perfect, but I am me. 💕
