Reflections on Me – it’s all about me, isn’t it? – and FREE Stuff

First and foremost: Thank you to all of you for reading my posts, taking your time to comment, clicking on the “like”  or offering your love, insights, personal struggles, poems, pictures and humor.

sunnymars100900002Evolution: I walk a fine line between what to disclose and what to keep private, both as a therapist and as a blogger. As a therapist my training was to never self-disclose. Therapists are supposed to be a “blank slate” upon which clients  project their own feelings, fears and hope.

As I’ve “evolved”, modified or down right let go of more and more of my “training” – what remains always surprises me.  This blog continues to evolve with me and probably surprises you too!

Objective Observation: Clients come in looking for a quick fix – understandable and healthy not to want to remain in a state of  pain, confusion or fear.  They  look to me for my point of view (there goes the blank slate!).  Truth be told, they don’t always like my point of view but I give it anyway.

I am not an expert on life – just an observer, a professional lookie-loo. The only difference between my clients and me is that I “usually” can objectively  observe my own  unhealthy (read, “bad”)  behavior – can’t always stop it but I sure do know what my part is.

Behavior: Time for me to begin to act on my observations. 

Observation: My entire life has been about teaching and sharing what I’ve learned. I didn’t deliberately set out to do this, it seemed to just happened.

Observation: I’ve accumulated a TON of  “stuff”.  I have closets of  craft supplies, audio recordings, power-point P1030969presentations, creative expression tools & techniques on a variety of topics such as health & wellness, spirituality, psychology, creativity etc, etc.

Behavior #1: I’ve begun to make more changes to this blog.  I’m adding FREE STUFF, rearranging and editing.  Can’t afford to pay anyone so I struggle with the technology side – struggle is putting it mildly –  it is slow going and doesn’t work the way I’d like.

  • It isn’t very “user-friendly”
  • I don’t know how to link things for easy retrieval. (I’ll try to put the new “stuff” at the top.)
  • You’ll have to periodically click on the “FREE STUFF” on the header to see what’s new.
  • I can’t figure out how to create MP3 downloads so the audio recordings will have to be listened to on the blog

P1030059Behavior #2:

After a 6 month hiatus I will start facilitating live workshops again.  That will help thin out the supply cabinet!  I’ll post the schedules on the blog.

As many of you know, my attention span does not span a lot of time, my interests pull me in many directions and my physical health sometimes puts a damper on my intentions.  So be patient, be encouraging and please share with your friends what I share with you.

Clarifications by Tallulah

My Dearests,
I find it a bit tedious that I have to clarify the confusion Miss JudyJudith has created by her last post.  However, it is incumbent upon me to address her mis-communication to make sure that my reputation remains pristine and shelter her from further embarrassment.

Here are my clarifications.

I, Miss Tallulah Pacehead, am diligently doing my job.  I am not responsible for any of the chest pain, exhaustion or wack-o arryhthmia’s Miss jJ was experiencing.   I am an electronic miracle, unlike the medications which seem to cause unseemly side effects.

I, Miss Tallulah Pacehead,  am aghast that some of you did not know I have lived with Miss jJ for several years.  I am quite famous so those of you who are not acquainted with me  click here and type in Tallulah or pacemaker in the search box. (I have many posts)

Miss JudyJudith is NOT retiring, nor is she getting rid of her workshop materials and “stuff” (as she so indelicately called the fruits of her labor).  Even though she is getting rather “long of tooth” she continues to see clients, make presentations and facilitate workshops.

What Miss JudyJudith MEANT to say is that she wishes to make available her Hypnotic Healing Recordings, workshop workbooks, instructions and on-line workshops for free/donation.  She, unlike me, is technologically impaired and can not figure out how to get the “stuff” (as she so indelicately called her life’s work) up on the web.

With my kindest regards,

Ta Ta!

Colors of My Life – Jumbo Journal, Week 1, Tues. GroupShop

Making Therapeutic Healing Jumbo Journals.  This is an 8 week group/workshop.  (That’s why I call it a GROUPSHOP! clever, huh?)

We started with a JUMBO piece of paper (inspired by Jane LaFazio)  Used credit cards as “brushes” to smear “The Colors of my Life” all over the paper to create the background of the first layer.  

Then we talked about how the colors, movement, placement and shapes reflect each person’s life, hopes and experiences.  

Next the Jumbo-sized paper was folded to make an 8 page Jumbo Journal!  The JJ will be used to creatively record & explore each persons healing journey during the 8 weeks.  

You better take a look at the first process NOW.  Each week there will be a transformation of what each participant’s Jumbo Journal looks like!
