Being A Workaholic

Working Hard

Working Hard

The Struggles & Solutions To Relax

I struggle with being a workaholic. I get involved in something and become so focused that I lose track of time, and ignore other things that need to get done. Like having lunch or going to bed.

I start working on a task and find myself hours later, sometimes into the very wee hours of the morning still working on it. It’s stressful. It affects your health when you do it day after day. And it’s simply not good for you.

But if I had a problem with a project, I’ve been known to get so focused that I can’t think of anything else until it’s resolved. I’ve had bosses tell me I have to go home and stand there until I pack up and leave. It was much worse than it is now. I talked to a therapist and tried to resolve the issue.

How can you change the negative patterns and turn your day around to be in the moment, enjoy the world around you and relax? The best way is to find a set of tools that offer rewards and incentives. I think I’ve done quite well overall, but it still creeps up from time to time.    I’ve found ways to help me avoid getting back into the old patterns. Continue reading

A Tool For Writing Incantations or Prayers

Arctic Wolf Fire

“Arctic Wolf Fire”
By Tom-in-Silence

Speaking In Rhymes

I’m of the belief that the spells or prayers that rhyme are the ones that are the easiest to remember.

I found myself in need of some rhyming help this evening while writing a spell. What in the world rhymes with fire and would give force to protection? It dawned on me, there has to be an app for that! Well I don’t know about an app, but I did find a great website that helped!  I thought I’d share my find.

It’s called RhymeZone. What I liked most about this little place is that you can type in the word you’re trying to rhyme with and it not only gives you options, but it also gives you links to definitions. That is very helpful when you’re trying to write a phrase to raise a specific type of visualized energy, such as for a spell or prayer.

Oh..and in case you were wondering,
With this warmth of smoke and fire, I empower this stone with the energy to repel and expire.

Something To Remember About Compassion

CompassionIt’s Hard…Asking For Help

It’s hard to be positive when you’re faced with such negativity.
It’s hard to smile with joy, when anger is sent your way.
It’s hard to stand up to challenge, when so many kick you while you’re down.
It’s hard to shelter those around you, when you’re at the bottom asking for help to get up.
It’s hard to be compassionate, when others compare their inconvenient trials to your desperate struggles.

Is it no wonder that those who are at their wit’s end, pull away, ignore the phone, delete the emails, cry in private and fall out of your life? Sometimes those in struggle can’t take that one more hateful word, one more comment of guilt, one more blame they had no control over.

Remember someone always has it worse than you. And they’re not responsible for the choices you make to help them or not. Don’t assume others don’t know about your sacrifices. Don’t accuse them of being ungrateful, when they’ve said thank you or they appreciate your past help. No one “wants” to ask for help. It takes a lot of strength, courage and humility to turn to others. Don’t smack them down for it. You maybe their last and only option.

Running A Request For Help Is Emotional

Help Us Help Others

We received another donation this week and we wanted to say thank you to those who have helped us so far. Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for your compassion and caring.

Even if you can’t help with financial support, you can help in other ways. By sharing our campaign page on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ you’re helping us to get recognized, and you’re helping us to get featured on Indiegogo’s home page! THAT would help GREATLY!

We offer consultation and counseling services for rape victims, women and families of abuse, and those in crisis. We have been asked to provide these services for those who are shut-ins from illness, tragedy or trauma, who are out of state, and for military personnel stationed around the U.S and overseas. Each of these requests are asking for help from people who believe in what they believe in and see the world through the same spiritual concepts and approaches as they do. Help Us Help Others is our campaign to fulfill that request, especially for our military men and women who give so much for those of us back home.

I wish we could say “we’re almost there”, but we’re a long way from it. With 74 Days left in our campaign we have only reached 1/10th of our goal. But we’re still going and ever so thankful for all the help we have gotten so far.

When I first researched this approach to funding our project I read several articles about the emotion that goes into these campaigns. Boy are they right in that. It’s hard to remember the campaign isn’t a reflection of the acceptance of an individual or a business or even an individual cause. But each time you check your campaign and see that a donation was made you get a sudden burst of excitement and joy. Consequently, when you check your campaign day after day and see no movement, you get discouraged and you think “no one likes me/us/what we’re doing”.  The sentence is different depending on the person you’re talking to.

Here’s where it gets hard being the boss of your own business. You can’t take things like this personally; at all. It’s business, nothing more. And you have to keep up a “brave” face for those who work with you, to keep them motivated and encouraged. Sometimes living the walk you talk isn’t easy, but it does get your though both the good and the bad times that everyone faces. No matter who you are, everyone needs a little pep talk now and then. There’s nothing wrong with giving yourself a pep talk.

Our campaign is simply trying to Help Us Help Others. Help us keep hope alive for shut-ins and the military who have requested our services for consultation and counseling on Skype & iPad’s Face to Face. Won’t you Help A Little To Help A Lot?

Whither you simply share our campaign page, or make a donation we really appreciate your support. And don’t forget if you can provide a monetary gift we do have something to give you as a thank you. Get a free personal reading from ME. Check our Perks page to learn about the different readings you can receive. You might even be able to receive a Face to Face tarot reading on our new technology!

Towns Devastated in Tornado Disaster in Indiana

Tony Stewart Nascar Champion

Tony Stewart Nascar Champion

.
Everyone at Spring’s Haven is sending their prayers and healing energies to everyone hit by the violent tornado’s in last weeks storms. But we felt a connection to those in southern Indiana.

Fans of Tony Stewart can help Tornado Victims in So. Indiana by contacting WTHR13 TV – http://www.wthr.com

Marysville Indiana is about 30-40miles south of Tony’s hometown of Columbus. The entire town was totally wiped out. If you’re a Nascar Fan like we are, you may want to help people in the area around your favorite drivers home.

This is mine and I hope people will reach out and help their neighbors.
