Jennifer Ankele: Medium

  After my fiance passed away suddenly in early 2020, my life was shattered. My future was shattered, my plans, completely washed away. The grief seemed insurmountable and starting my life over from scratch felt impossible while facing grief. A year after my Michael's death, I started to seek out a medium. I had been feeling Michael's presence and in some cases, even heard him. It felt a little crazy making. I wanted verification. The first Medium I sought out was a complete hack. I was under the impression I paid for a mediumship reading, but I didn't get any sort of mediumship reading. She wanted to give me an astrology reading and every other reading available but a medium reading. I was devastated, again. Then months later, I was scrolling on my instagram and a Grief Medium post came up. I was super skeptical but I looked into it. Her prices were affordable and I thought.... well.... if it's another hack job, then so be it. At least it was an affordable loss. Jennif

Consciously Processing Emotion by Vito Mucci

As we grow up there are a litany of skills we are taught in school, and, depending on our home life, another set of skills we are taught at home. Unlike banking or paying taxes or organizing bills, nothing in our lives as young adults forces us to learn this skill as a natural part of adulthood. In fact, we are generally unaware that it is important at all, even though our inability to do it disrupts our lives on a daily basis. This skill is the conscious processing of emotion. I grew up with a notion, maybe you did too, that people with emotional problems or addictions can't cope with life. When I was buried in panic and alcohol, my "inability to cope with life" was not an actionable thing to improve. I would ask "How can I cope with life better?" The answers were vague and unhelpful, "suck it up." From inside a broken brain and life, I had to figure out what it was that I couldn't cope with. It turned out that it was "feelings." Fe

Creating a Life of Kindness by Dr. Wendy Rae D.D.

Mark Twain nailed the concept of kindness in one sentence: Kindness is the only language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see. 20 years ago, sifting through a small town library in northwest Iowa, I stumbled upon a book of quotes. At the time I was editor of the weekly newspaper and was always looking for inspiration to pass along to the community. Little did I know that this small book of quotes was going to impact me two full decades later. In one of the sections of the quote book was a particular area that I found myself reading repeatedly. It was the section on kindness. At that time, I was going through some huge personal issues and I was struggling with how to remain open to possibility, keep my motivation high, and how to be a positive influence for my 6 old daughter. Three quotes from that book have stayed with me. “A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.” Steve Maraboli “The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the greatest intent
