I Am HeartMath Certified! Get More Resilience and Clarity!!

by Teresa LynneDecember 17, 2014
A lot of people think of the heart as a mere muscle that pumps and circulates blood. The truth is there is a lot more to the heart. Neuro-cardio science has demonstrated that the heart has its own brain and nervous system and sends billions of signals every day to the brain. [More]

You Do Not Have to Suffer!!! Really, You Don't! Practice This and Keep Moving Forward.

by Teresa LynneDecember 03, 2014
How many of us are in a situation or have a set of circumstances we wish were different but there is nothing we can do to change it? Whether it’s an illness, a loss of some type or some sort of upheaval in our lives, we can really go beyond pain and into suffering. When I lost my husband to a divorce a few years ago, there were times I was so swallowed up in fear and sadness that I could hardly function and the abandonment thing was kicking my ass. There was not a thing I could do to change the situation and of course as I said before, it was a good decision for the long run because there was no end to the hostility between us. Still, the wretched sadness would overtake me at times and I wondered if I would even survive it, never mind find happiness again. [More]

It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year! Really?

by Teresa LynneNovember 19, 2014
Is Thanksgiving actually next week? You don't have to have BPD or even high sensitivity to get out of whack over it. With a little planning you can avoid wishing you could just sleep through the end of the year or curling up into a puddle of goop -- and enjoy or at least tolerate things without feeling like you are the victim of this forced upon us joyous season.

Ebony and Ivory, Live Together in Perfect Harmony?

by Teresa LynneNovember 06, 2014
Do you ever think of your partner as the most wonderful human you have ever come in contact with one day and then he/she does some little thoughtless thing, usually having zero to do with you and suddenly they are the spawn of Satan. Next thing you know, everything they have ever said and done is proof that you shouldn’t be with them and we go into a negative spiral over it, taking a wrecking ball to a situation that may only need a screw driver.

Questions are the Answer?

by Teresa LynneOctober 15, 2014
We have all heard the old adage, "the only stupid question is the one unasked". WRONG. It's more like, "want a better answer, ask a better question". In the process of speaking with many clients and their families struggling with so called BPD, I have come to realize that questions are at the heart of a lot of pain and inertia. It’s pretty simple really and I see it at work and play in my own life. I was working with “Lisa” the other day and she asked me “why can’t I do anything right?” I pondered the question and the possible answers she might give herself instead of just saying “oh sweetie, there are so many things you do right”. Marinating in her negative story about herself, she wouldn’t have believed it anyway. [More]

So Happy to Find Out How Smart I Really Am. Seventy-Two hours of Validation.

by Teresa LynneOctober 08, 2014
I really struggled with the idea of attending the conference in San Antonio last month. I really wanted to become part of an integrative network so I could refer my clients to whole healing professionals but I was intimidated. After all, it MD’s training MD’s and PHD’s. I thought well, this will be way over MY head and I was right. It was, AND it was the best thing I’ve ever done for myself and my clients. The most incredible part was finding out there is a mysterious creature I did not know existed but was exhilarated to discover. It’s called an integrative psychiatrist. [More]

I Was a Victim.

by Teresa LynneSeptember 05, 2014
I recently (recently was last night) was engaged in a casual conversation that evolved into me trying to dig up dirt on my life to clean. That’s because I still have triggers that send me into spins, so I go on a mission to hunt them down and eliminate them like I am some kind of pest control employee. My energy psychologist and I continue to work on these. Turns out, not remembering felt better, at least in the moment.Some triggers are just little annoying german roaches like what infiltrated my house in the last two weeks. I tried to save money by getting those nice clean trays to lure them in but they used them for dance floors. The event that my mother was describing to me felt more like a den of rats. They don’t fit into the roach trays. Apparently, my father kidnapped me from school while I was in kindergarten because my mother was divorcing him. He called her, said he had me and that she would never see me again. She said she wasn’t sure that he meant he would kill me, so what a relief. [More]

FOMO: It Doesn't Have To Mean Fear of Missing Out

by Teresa LynneAugust 27, 2014
Last week I was listening to one of my daughter’s songs and one line of the lyrics really stood out, “No matter what choice I make, I know I’m gonna miss out on something”. She’s a wise young soul and I am constantly learning from her. How many choices do we make on a daily basis that are driven by the fear of missing out? When we have struggled with identity more intensely than the average person because of how our brains were wired (the peeps at the DSM call it BPD and I don’t trust those guys) we are constantly second guessing ourselves.
