My story, True Hope – Empower – Natural Brain Balance


It all started in 2010, for me.  I was suffering from extreme emotional swings.  I had been treated for depression and anxiety most of my adult life.  I went in to treatment and the program psychiatrist happened to be my Dad’s psychiatrist back in the day. Even more amazing is what happened next.

She read my history and told me she was going to check my thyroid.  I had never had my thyroid checked before, though I had taken almost every medication I heard of for depression and anxiety.  This particular doctor believed the thyroid played a major role in mental health.

She saved my life!  My thyroid was elevated, my liver and kidneys were shutting down, and the medication doctors put me on was reaching toxic levels! If she hadn’t had my thyroid tested I could have died.

This doctor told me about a natural supplement for brain balance and health.  She told me, people who are unresponsive to medication tend to respond well to this natural supplement.  It was their “Empower Supplement”!


I was able to take this supplement while coming off psychiatric medications which were causing health issues and felt better than ever!  I still saw doctors regularly and continued medication off and on, but Empower has been an excellent supplement with or without medication.  If you are taking medication consult with your doctor and they will probably look at the label of ingredients and tell you it is fine to take it. Thats what mine told me. However, True Hope has a dedicated staff to assisting you with your use of this product and have been willing to work with doctors.  Doctors usually have no problem with this Empower Supplement because it is all natural ingredients.

You can get these ingredients from many sources.  The magic of Empower is the synergistic blend of nutrients to promote brain health and balance.  It is how each ingredient works with the other in optimal dosages.  I definitely suggest reaching out these these wonderful people and discussing how one of their all natural supplements may help you or someone you love.  It has saved my life and always works when my medication does not.  That’s my experience with this amazing product.  I hope you check it out for yourselves and see how you may be able to better manage your brain health and balance : )

A Letter From My Dead Son


You know what to do. Just do it! Be yourself. Life is suppose to be fun. Be happy Daddy, just like you always wanted me to be happy. I am happy. There is so much I can do now that I never could do before. I am learning so much and having fun! I see you often and I know you feel me and try to feel me. I know you love me and you know I love you too. Life can be hard. It’s not all about you and what you want. It’s all about learning to love, serve one another and take care of each other (including ourselves).  We are all one big family. We are all connected, even when it doesn’t feel like it. I know you know this.  Live it. Slow down. Trust your gut, Show up. Be present. Allow yourself to love and be loved (those final words were your own to you through me;)


Your Son,


Ideas That Keep Rolling Around

I am tired, but I cannot sleep.  I have these ideas rolling around in my mind and body and they are distracting me.  I have been wanting to blog more, but am afraid to come to the page with emotions as I tend to intellectualize my personal feelings.  I can be overly-critical and turn people off though I don’t mean to.  I also believe what I believe with a passion and purpose because of the experience these beliefs afford me, the actual difference they make in my life.

You can literally believe anything we want.  We do it all the time.  We assume what things mean and make up a story, a dialogue to make sense of things.  We write a world into existence with the words we tell ourselves in our minds.  We tell ourselves and others a story to make believe whatever we want.  Most people don’t consciously manipulate their stories to get what they want.  This, coupled, with the inability to feel others leads to sociopathic tendencies.

The point I wanted to make was that our minds and our bodies are connected.  The great philosophic minds of our time and ancient times debated the mind-body dualism, or separation.   let’s take a look at what is really going on here.  It is important because it helps explain the mind in a way that is more expansive and capable of more.

Our bodies are transducers.  They convert one form of energy to another, bio-chemical electromagnetics.   Our brains are thought to be the alpha and omega of our minds, but this is just not true.  Our brains are part of a vast neurological system conducting energy throughout our bodies, communicating back and forth throughout.  Our brain is just one part of the whole neurological system.  Many of the same basic functions thought to give the brain it’s central role in the central nervous system are actually found throughout the entire body and neurological system.  Basically, our mind are not just our brains, they are an entire system which interacts with the world through our bodies.  There is another “brain” in the body tied to our digestion, immunity, overall health, mood, and energy, the gut.  More information travels from the gut to the brain than the brain to the gut.  Why do we call intuition “gut” reaction?  It is simple, because the gut is functioning much like our brains but maybe even to much higher capacities.  The brain may actually be found to be secondary to the rest of the nervous system like an important node in circuitry.

Where am I going with all of this?  What is mindfulness, presence, and embodiment.  Buddhists have been practicing the art of mindfulness for many years. It is mainly a focus of the mind into the immediate sensations and experience of the moment at hand and nothing more.  It’s a quieting of the mind as connected to the brain and a descent into the entire neurological body to become aware of the whole body experience, or mentality.  Mindfulness is so healthy a mental practice it is key to treating anxiety and other mental disorders.  It is also key to a healthy mind.

What is presence?  The act of arriving.  We allow ourselves to come out of our brain centered thoughts in our heads and relax into our bodies, as if we were energetically breathing into ourselves a little more from breath to breath until we feel connected with the earth and the cosmos.  This is the beginning of embodiment, to be present in a particular state or experience.  Embodiment is a tool for becoming one thing or another as completely as you can so to experience its fullness and ultimate meaning.

Hiding in Plain Site – A Poem About Grief

Hiding in Plain Site


I’m here

But I don’t want to be

And its not your fault


I don’t know how to be myself right now


Something has come between us

I feel it


But it has no words

To work with


It’s not just







Or shyness


I’m not avoiding you


I don’t like you

Or am upset with you


I just don’t know what to say

Or how to say it


Right now

There is so much

Going on

Inside me


I am so preoccupied with everything I am going through


I feel bad

I can’t quite be

Fully present or engaging


You feel so far away

I don’t feel like I have the energy

To meet you

Where you are


It’s cramped

In here


I’m alone but with you in spirit


And don’t want to bother anyone

I don’t feel I have anything good to offer anyone

I don’t want to bring you down


I don’t want you to catch

My disease

Even though

I know you cannot


I sometimes feel this way


All I really want to say is that I love you

And only want the best for you

And I am here as much as I can be right now

And I hope you understand.
