Looking Within to start the Journey to Well Being

You hear an awful lot about looking within to find healing, to find peace, to find yourself in fact

But exactly how, do you do that




Here’s a way you can incorporate ‘looking within’ into your life today and start getting the benefit


Working with the breath

Every hour stop what you are doing, close your eyes and take 3 slow gentle breaths

In  1-2-3

Out 1-2-3


Just 3 breaths.  Every hour for maybe 4 consecutive hours.  Set a reminder on your phone


As you get more comfy doing this – after a few days perhaps


Start to notice the breath, as it enters and as it leaves


Imagine a gentle power coming into you on the In breath

Soften your shoulders and let your belly go to jelly on the Out breath


3 breaths.  Every hour. For a few hours a day.


An easy way to start looking within

A choice to make – A Journey to Well Being

You get to decide what you hurt about

You get to choose how long you hurt for


When you are ready


When you desire Wellness and seek it, just a little


It will unfold  for you

At a pace you can easily handle


You get to experiment




What Well Being looks like for you


…and the journey will give you great wisdom and clarity…if you let it


It is just a decision you make


“I want to get well”

“I want to experience what Well Being looks like for me”

“I am going to learn how to be well”

“I am going to find hope”

“I am going to find Beauty and Magic and Joy”


Feel your way….


And you say it to yourself quite a few times a day




“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”


Feel it get clearer and stronger as you repeat it for a long as You need


Who cares how long it is taking

There is only You at Your place in Your journey

You are spectacularly unique and wonderful

Explore yourself



Seek within

Listen to your self-talk now and again.

Just make a decision to notice it here and there


…and then remember  “I’m going to get well” if you notice your thoughts make you feel down


Embrace the power of this simple statement “I’m going to get well”


Feel it in your bones

In your Soul


Expect that your walk to Wellness will take 6 months to 2 years perhaps. Depending upon which aspect of the learning you are focusing upon, when you begin

Where you are starting, in this very personal journey



Start a conversation with yourself and tell a different story

A story of where you are going

Not where you have been


Try another thought, now and then

One that brings a smile perhaps

Change your focus

Look up and outward into the light

Appreciate something, anything, in this moment now


Whenever you do that, you look toward your best self


And as you seek, the teachers will appear

The perfect one for you


Just make a decision


“It’s time for me to know what Well Being looks like”


“I choose to experience Well Being”



With Love

The psychiatrists job – A Journey to Well Being

And this healing journey is available to all


And what is your job…as a psychiatrist?


To help them find their way to their Own well being

To assist them in discovering what well being looks like for Them

No-one else

Not the Doc or the drug company or the family or the friends, or the lover, or the healer, but themselves

And by focusing on their well being a little here…and a little there….not today perhaps, but tomorrow a little

And then at some point, they begin to actually enjoy, the unfolding journey

While I strongly believe that current medications make it more difficult to get back to Well Being, I do not recommend sudden cessation

Rather, find  your way to well being first

On a regular basis

With safety nets available

Strategies and plans  for you to deal with the often prolonged emotional, physical and mental withdrawal from these drugs that have messed with your ever so  finely balanced neurotransmitters.

Neurotransmitters  that are involved in every moment of your life


The Psychiatrist should have in depth knowledge of the cessation syndromes,  otherwise they have no right to prescribe them

Healing is there for all


It is so

With Love
