“Doomed To Struggle?” - Amy Leo

Friday, July 31, 2015

"Why did you do that? You should have..."

"You know better than that!"

“Try this instead...”

These phrases echoed throughout school corridors, provider offices, and homes during my 5 year tenure as a social worker for children and teens in the NYC area.

Improving mental health has long fascinated me, so it was only natural that I took a position working with kids recently discharged from psychiatric hospitals after college.

I was part of a team of mental health professionals dedicated to helping keep these kids in their homes...

Judy Sedgeman - The Three Principles

RSS Feed
Thursday, July 23, 2015

Everything I blog is grounded in the Three Principles of Mind. Thought and Consciousness. Sometimes, it seems we don’t take time to reflect on the significance of this, that there are Principles that offer deep logic to our recognition that innate mental health is a spiritual quality, the pure formlessness of the creative power that empowers life.

We can think about the spiritual, but because it is BEFORE thought, before we create form in our minds to explain it, we cannot ever truly define it. We can only observe spiritual power after the fact, as we use our power to think our way through life and realize, more and more, that power is within us. We don’t need to seek it outside ourselves, or look for others to provide it. It is...

There’s a Principle of Thought Behind Your Thinking And knowing this brings you the mental calm and clarity we’re all seeking. By Annika Hurwitt Schan

RSS Feed
Friday, July 10, 2015

In my last newsletter, my blog was called “When you Say It’s Just My Thinking, What Are You Thinking?"  One of the main points of that blog is that, when people say that, they’re often using their personal thinking to think about their personal thinking – a bit like a dog chasing its tail.  This is quite different than aligning yourself with the principle of thought.   

I was talking with a client yesterday who runs an antique business.  She was recovering from a visit with a relative that didn’t go well.  “I know it’s just my thinking,“ she said – there it was again.  When I pointed out that she was thinking about this from a personal perspective, when, in fact, principles are impersonal by nature, there was a sigh of relief.  “You’re right,” she said.  “I’m taking this much too personally.”  

The Principle of Thought brings you thoughts and feelings, and clears your thoughts and feelings, landing you back in the present for a millisecond before the next thought arrives.  When your mind...

War and Peace - Judith Sedgeman

RSS Feed
Friday, June 19, 2015

It is ultimately a matter of war and peace whether people across the world come to understand the role of their own and others’ thinking and fluctuating states of mind.

Security:InsecurityOne person at a time, when someone comes to understand how thought works and what is creating their experience of reality, they become increasingly secure. When a person feels secure, not living at the mercy of external factors, life does not look threatening. Secure people remain calm and exercise judgment, and...

We’re always at “Home" - Elsie Spittle

RSS Feed
Friday, May 15, 2015

My time recently has been rich with discovery, and continues to unfold.   I am moved to share my own insights about wisdom truly being inside us all. There is never a time when we aren’t connected to wisdom or Mind.

 For a while now I’ve been seeing more fully that we are truly “home” all the time, no matter the challenges we face, or troubling thoughts we may have. There is an underlying spiritual protection comforting and guiding us, our true nature offering solace and solutions.

 For a long time, I found myself talking about wisdom “having my back” or “shoulder to shoulder.” Those phrases were expressions of how wisdom felt to me. The conundrum is that I would also talk about wisdom being “inside” of us. It began to dawn on me that if wisdom is inside, why was I making wisdom outside of me by it having my back, and so on.

Is It Easy To Be Happy? - Judith Sedgeman

RSS Feed
Friday, April 24, 2015

Recently I saw a new client who sobbed at the outset, “I don’t see how I will ever be happy again!” An hour later, as she left, she was laughing. “I’ve sure been a big drama queen with all that serious thinking, haven’t I?” she said.

How does a shift like that happen? In the simplest terms, it is the natural outcome of what Principles practitioners do that is new to treatment. We don’t take unhappiness seriously. We point people to the true, constant, unfailing, spiritual source of human happiness that nothing can touch. We teach people what mental well-being is, and where it comes from, and how we lose and regain...

The Effects of Anger - Bryan Ryan (Mental Health Educator)

RSS Feed
Friday, April 10, 2015


By: Bryan Ryan (Mental Health Educator) 

www.miltonclinic.ie http://www.3pgc.org/directory/miltonclinic/  

I had a client last year, a woman in her 50’s who lived in the rough inner city. She was the “salt of the earth” kind of person, who lived with a lot of anger in her life. Her 16 yr old daughter was wild, and the two of them would have countless arguments between them. She also had Crohn’s disease which was flaring up quite a lot as well.

The meeting with me was probably the first time she was able to sit down and have any kind of a peaceful conversation with anyone. Now this lady is smart, street smart, she needed to be to get by from day to day.

Within about 30 minutes of talking together I had the opportunity of teaching her in very simple terms how thought works, that every feeling of anger that she was experiencing was simply created by her own thoughts, that she was in fact making these thoughts up, just...
