After studying the psychological dynamics causing addictive behavior
since 1976, I suspect that the root cause has been found. If you want
to lose weight, stop impulsive buying, no longer need legal or
illegal drugs, the solution is to have more fun. Yes, it appears that
people become addicted to “treating” themselves to unhealthy
behaviors because they are not allowing themselves to experience
enough pleasure in everyday life.

Wow, isn’t that wonderful? How delightful it is to give yourself
permission to add more genuine fun and pleasure to each day so that
you do not need to sneak your fun and pleasure in the back door. When
you feel deprived because your Inner Critic is making you wrong for
not working all the time, you become addicted to unhealthy things,
like food, drugs and gambling. Sex addiction would also be included
because sex addicts do not really enjoy the fantastic pleasure that
true lovemaking gives your whole body and soul.

So, my dear readers, please make sure you give yourself enough fun
and pleasure each day. Your emotional self needs fun; your body needs
pleasure. Create a holistic healthy practice each morning before you
get out of bed. Check in with what your emotional self and body need
to make you happy and satisfied.

If you do not have a loving relationship with your emotional self,
the Opening the Heart audio series is an effective guide. If you do
not have a loving relationship with your body, the Overcome Anxiety
Naturally home study course guides you into a physical reality that
reduces anxiety and depression.

What to Do When You Panic and Feel Anxious

The Vibrant Moment – Remember: Remove Panic.
Tools from the Center for New Psychology
Publisher: Dr. Doris Jeanette, Body-Emotions-Energy Teacher
Visit: http://www.drjeanette.com

=================================================

My handyman was on the third floor of my home making loud noises as
he worked on my balcony replacing an old stuck window air
conditioner. I was sitting quietly in my living room on the first
floor when he sent my iPhone an image of a huge, long crack under a
badly damaged window. “Oh, no!” went off in my head. Immediately, I
panicked. I thought my fragile, old Philadelphia center city home was
splitting wide open with the force being used to pull the heavy
hummer out.

I ran up the stairs to see what was going on. When I arrived, he said
it was the neighbor’s house and that I should let them know because it
was serious. Wow, how quickly panic can come and go. Since losing my
stellar health, the ongoing pandemic and multiple assaults on my freedoms,
I notice stress is harder to handle.

Later in the day when I was enjoying a swim, I remembered a scene in
an old Ellen Burstyn movie called Resurrection. It was a true story
of a healer. In the unforgettable scene, a little girl’s nose starts
to bleed at a family reunion. The girl had hemophilia so everyone
around her at the picnic began to panic because they were afraid she
would never stop bleeding. The healer gently took the little girl in
her arms and quietly separated her from the crowd. She surrounded the
child with her calm, physical presence. The healer comforted, calmed
and reassured the little girl that her nose would soon stop bleeding.
Which it did. A miracle had happened.

What is the science behind the miracle? The Law of Resonance tells us
that all objects in the cosmos, including your organs and the cells in
your body vibrate and communicate with each other. The law states that
whatever your vibrations are, they resonate with the same energies in
the cosmos. This means you are whatever you resonate with in any given
moment. When the healer’s miracle happened, the little girl stopped
resonating with the panicky crowd around her, which was scaring her to
death. Instead, the child began to resonate with the healer who was
calm and secure. The child’s body resonated with wholeness, instead of
panic.

This law, along with Learning Research, is used in the home study
course, Overcome Anxiety Naturally. Panic is never helpful, so the
first thing you want to do is remove the panic. The course guides you
week by week out of panic into the part of you who is calm and
secure. Your Inner Healer has not been destroyed by negative life
experiences. You still have the ability to resonate with vibrations
that reassure you instead of scare you.

Whether panic originates inside or outside of you, as soon as you
notice the high pitched, exaggerated energy of panic, immediately
start to consciously breathe. Instead of being automatically sucked
into a self destructive, out of control energy, keep breathing as you
check out reality. Reality may not be as clear cut as misinterpreting
my house for my neighbor’s house. However, you can handle any
challenge that life throws at you better if you remove your panic and
anxiety.

Instead, resonate with your real fear. Your real fear is an alert
vibration inside of you. This vibration’s job is to keep you safe
from any real danger by providing you with the best course of action
to take in any given moment. Your body knows what is the best course
of action to take when you encounter a man on the street with a gun
or you are being told to evacuate because the wildfire is racing
toward your home.

You have the best chance for survival in everyday life challenges or
in a crisis if you fall into gravity and feel your body resonating
with Mother Earth. Trust the wisdom of your body when it vibrates
with the cosmos.

==============================

RESONATE WITH HEALTY VIBRATIONS: Learn to feel the difference between
an authentic emotion such as fear and the out of control energy of panic
by listening to the first 30 minutes of the Opening the Heart audio
series called “Feelings. The challenge of our species.” Practice feeling
these different vibrations as you move through the maze of real dangers
on planet earth. When you know the difference in these vibrations
you are strong, solid and secure in making good decisions that keep
you safe and sane. This knowledge is also very helpful in getting along
with other people. Three hours of audio on feelings, fear and hurt.

How to Use Your Body for Feedback about Reality and Denial

Featured

The Vibrant Moment – Remember: Your Body Knows.

========================================

A friend was telling me about her experience with diarrhea and
stomach problems so severe she rushed to the emergency room. The
physicians used all their tests, looking for medical problems and
could not find anything. I asked, “Was it anxiety?” She looked me
straight in the face and said, “But I am not anxious.”

I have been thinking a lot about denial. What is it really and how
can we tell when we are denying something really important that
we need to know. Sigmund Freud, first described “denial as refusing
to acknowledge upsetting facts about external events and internal
ones, including memories, thoughts, and feelings.”

It always amazes me when I discover that I have been denying something.
How could I be so unaware of what my body is saying? Diarrhea is a loud
message.

The more I ponder and explore denial it seems to me that some of us
deny facts that are pleasant and enjoyable as well as upsetting ones.
If this is correct, we use denial to keep ourselves feeling bad,
helpless and victimized by life events. Wow, that victim mentality
can really creep up on you.

The next time someone says something to you that you think is not
true, pause. You could be denying something that you need to know to
stop hurting yourself. Or you could be denying how wonderful your
life really is! After the pause, breathe and feel your body. Receive
the obvious information in your body that would help you feel better,
stronger and happier.

Listen carefully, deeply and often to what your body is expressing.
The body does not lie; it tells you the truth if you are willing to
listen to it.

NEED HELP LISTENING? “3 Reasons You Have a Body, Hear Your Body
Talking” audio gives you the valuable information you need to get
closer to your truth so denial does not continue to hurt you. Your
body is a marvel. Improve your relationship to it by listening and
loving it. One-hour audio, $29.97, money-back guarantee.

How to Get True Love that is Sincere and Real

The Vibrant Moment – Remember: Receive Love.
Tools from the Center for New Psychology

Visit: http://www.drjeanette.com
==============================

“It don’t mean a thing, if it ain’t got that swing
Doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah“
Duke Ellington

How much genuine love do you give and receive?

Saying “I love you” does not necessarily give anyone sincere love.
Nope, many times, it does not. Love is not a thought, belief or words
put together to be polite. Notice the empty words often used by the
egos of the world, including yours. The words are automatically
delivered, without feeling or pause.

The pause is important, both in giving and receiving. “The Swing” is
the real, genuine energy. It is in the pause that “The Swing” occurs.
It takes time for physical and emotional energy to enter your heart,
have an effect and transform energy before a response is even
possible. When you have a quick response you are uncomfortable,
afraid and anxious.

Lately, I have noticed that sometimes when I feel someone saying
something nice to me, I start to thank them. My thank you falls on
top of their words. It never occurred to me that my quick response
and words could be my way of not fully receiving their love into my
heart. However, as I become more conscious of my unconscious, my
anxious words block their love so I do not fully receive or benefit
from the genuine love given. Wow.

How could it be that receiving love makes me anxious? In order to
receive love you must be open. In order to be open, you must relax
your body and let go of control. This is the hard part. Instead of
being open and relaxed, we are often tense. Notice how afraid you are
of fully surrendering to love. When you surrender to love it is
terrifying because love becomes the boss, not you. Love moves you.
You do not move love. Love is a wave much bigger than you.

Love humbles you and destroys all your identities. Nevertheless, the
feeling of being loved is so fantastic, I am practicing staying open
and receiving love without saying a word. I feel uncomfortable,
vulnerable and small as the love enters my heart. And you will too,
when you use the key to your heart and open it so others can enter.

Your True Self and heart will become so big, happy and fulfilled you
will dance a jig as you radiate out love to all of humanity. Doo-ah,
doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah, doo-ah!

How to Stop Overthinking and Prevent Mental Illness and Stomach Aches

The Vibrant Moment – Remember: Do Not Waste Energy.
Tools from the Center for New Psychology
Publisher: Dr. Doris Jeanette, Body-Emotions-Energy Teacher
Visit: http://www.drjeanette.com

=============================================

How many ways do you waste your precious energy?

As I age, I am re-learning many things. A-amazing how you forget some
of the effective tools you used before. Yesterday, while reading through
some old notes, I was reminded of one of the many ways I waste energy.
I know thinking about something I cannot change is a waste of energy.
Alas, we know something is hurting us and we do not know how to stop it.

To change something that is hurting you, the first step is to become
aware of something you are doing that you are not aware of. Diving
deep and re-surfacing is the pathway to transformation and more
vibrant moments. It really helps to spend time alone so you can get
in touch with reality. Virginia Wolf’s book, A Room of Ones’ Own is a
classic if you have not read about the power of having your own
space. If you do not have the luxury of a whole house or room, use
separate time and outdoor space to find your true self.

I took a month retreat to be by myself alone with “me, myself and I,”
as Joan Armatrading loves to sing. Being alone is also good because
there is no one else to blame or project your judgements on. I began by
paying close attention to what I was thinking; during the day, at night
and while eating by candlelight; with my cup of ginger tea, with my
eyes closed and open and while cleaning house.

The result? Experiencing my thoughts and what I am doing with them is
driving me crazy. Yes, it is your thoughts that drive you crazy. My thoughts
are interesting thoughts, not boring thoughts. My thoughts are
positive thoughts, not negative thoughts. Wow, these thoughts are still
driving me crazy. Yes, positive thoughts can hurt you just as much as
negative ones. It is the energy of thinking that is so controlling and
inhibiting.

When you stop to think, you stop your healthy energy flow. Seriously.
“The Thinker,” Rodin’s statue here in Philadelphia is stuck and does
not flow. Take this physical fact to heart, thinking is the way you control
yourself and inhibit yourself. Repetitive thoughts take on a physical
form, becoming a mass of energy. This energy is called a Thought
Form. When thoughts become physical, they become beliefs. Beliefs are
extremely controlling. Good beliefs are as harmful as bad ones. There
are no right and wrongs in the real world. All of man’s judgments, good
or bad are outside of reality and are harmful to your mental and physical
health.

When I finally felt the mental energy I was stuck in, I felt sick to
my stomach. So sick, I wanted to throw up. Yuck, get this nasty stuff
out of me was my body’s reaction. Wonderful. Now I cannot deny how I
am hurting myself and my body. (This is how I quit smoking way back,
read about it in the free library at drjeanette.com.) I preach all
the time to you: To empower yourself you must get in your body and
stay there. Pay attention to your physical reality and accept what
you find with compassion. Do not blame yourself or others. Reality is
reality is reality.

Bringing yucky stuff up from your unconscious and feeling what you
are doing to yourself is usually enough to get you to stop hurting
yourself. At least it is for me. I love myself enough to stop hurting
myself when I am face to face with reality. Before my retreat, my
acupuncturist told me my stomach and spleen were screaming when he
read my pulse. He was not sure how serious it was, but they were
upset. Now, I feel what he was feeling in my pulse. My stomach is
screaming. Physical feedback wakes you up to reality.

Now I notice when my thoughts upset my stomach and stop as soon as I
can. To help me stay on track when my stomach is not screaming, I pay
attention to anything I think or do that wastes energy. When I notice I
am wasting energy I begin to change what I am thinking and the actions
based on my thoughts. This helps keep the screams from developing in
the first place.

Wow, reality is sobering. I am re-listening to my audio, Tame Your
Thoughts for help.
When you stop thinking so much you stop wasting
your precious energy. When you stop wasting your energy, you get
different results. A more relaxed stomach feels better.

What to Do When You are Afraid, Anxious or Worried

=============================

Tools from the Center for New Psychology
Publisher: Dr. Doris Jeanette, Body-Emotions-Energy Teacher
Visit: http://www.drjeanette.com

============================

Regular readers of The Vibrant Moment know how important it is to distinguish the difference between your real fears and your irrational thoughts. Your irrational thoughts scare you to death and do not go away until you expose them and learn how to stop them from controlling you. Irrational energy is what makes you anxious and unpleasant to be around. 

Your real fears exist to keep you safe. However, if you avoid them, your real fears also control you. To be self-confident you must do what Mary Renault, the author of numerous books on Alexander the Great, said he did. You must “face your biggest fear and lay it dead at your feet.” Alexander is a great model for how to be brave, honest and strong. 

I am writing a free special report for my new website about what to do when you are anxious, afraid and worried. If anyone would like to read it and give me feedback, email me and I will send you a copy. 

Here is an excerpt from the report, “What to do When You feel Anxious, Worried or Afraid:”

“There are many real fears, from a fear that you need to get a job to support yourself, to the fact that someone could break into your home and hurt you. These real fears are based on the amount of stress you have in your life and the actual things that happen to people, houses and money. Even if you have money and health, you can lose them. Even if you have a home, the weather can destroy it. Trust me, there are many real events that are scary and could happen to you; not the least of which is being abandoned by a loved one by death or design.

Here are some effective ways to deal with real fear:

1.  Find out the facts about what is going on.
2.  Face your fears and do not make reality worse than it is. 
3.  Give yourself reassurance and get it from others.
4.  Educate yourself about how to handle the problem.
5.  Take direct actions that make you safer and address your fears.
6.  Give yourself comfort and get it from others as you go through the hard time. 

Stress is real. Empathy helps. Often, once you see a clear path about how to handle a problem, you are no longer afraid or anxious. This is the first thing I recommend you do to handle your stress and become more relaxed. Get help from reliable sources about what you need to do to protect yourself and what actions you need to take to solve your problem. Always ask for help and use it. Do not be a fool and think you know it all.

My real fears diminish as soon as I:

1.  Know what to do. 
2.  Get a rational explanation of what is really going on.
3.  Realize I am wrong! What a relief, I am wrong. Thank goodness.
4.  Learn there is nothing else I can do about the situation.
5.  Admit I am not the smartest person and that is ok. Just don’t rub it in.

If you take the above actions, you are facing your fears. As a result, you feel more relaxed and self-confident. Please pause and enjoy the pleasure of finding and using more of your inner strengths. This relaxed, self confident state is the place you want to return to again and again.”

Life is a process, enjoy being alive in each moment.

How to Fulfill Your Personal Growth Goals and New Year’s Resolutions

=============================

The Vibrant Moment – Remember: Discover Your Denial.
Tools from the Center for New Psychology
Publisher: Dr. Doris Jeanette, Body-Emotions-Energy Teacher
Visit: http://www.drjeanette.com

==============================

If you are having a hard time keeping your New Year’s Resolutions, it is helpful to take a long look in the mirror. Spending some time, each day in silence, looking inward and outward, will speed up your personal growth. Even three minutes is better than none.

Most of you know you have blind spots in your eyes and in your lives. So, how often do you pay attention to yours? Denial is one of the most self-destructive things you can do to yourself. Yet, it is one of the hardest things to notice in yourself. This is one of the major reasons you need lots of people in your life. Some of us even pay others to show us our blind spots! Great coaches, mentors, teachers and therapists are worth the investment in yourself. This is because others help you discover your blind spots.

Denial is not that complicated. If you react and get defensive, this means someone has triggered your button. Your button is a tender spot from your past that has been activated. This is not a harmful event. Your reaction is an ineffective conditioned response. Your defensiveness tells you that you need to do some serious emotional healing. Noticing when you react and how you really feel inside will lead to a permanent healing of your tender spot. Once you heal your tender spot, instead of reacting, you are relaxed and open because you feel emotionally secure.  

Unfortunately, many people avoid people who push their buttons. Avoidance is not helpful. You need people in your life who trigger your buttons. If you are unsure if you are reacting, you need to learn to read energy. Reading energy is the most reliable way to be sure of anything. You can learn to feel the energy difference between a closed, knee jerk response and an open, receptive response. 

So, spend time in silence. Notice when you are reacting. One step forward is enough. Heal your buttons permanently and enjoy your New Year more than you did 2021. Be patient and loving with yourself. There is no rush.

==========================

LEARN TO READ ENERGY: Studying the Opening the Heart audio teaches you how to sense the different human energies. In the first hour audio on feelings, you learn the difference between being reactive and being open. Next, you listen to a comforting voice guide you into finding your tender spots and emotional self that need to be healed. Then there is another hour on fear and anxiety that helps you face the limitations that are stopping you in your emotional healing. The final hour on hurt is a comforting audio that shows you how to be with yourself as you are healing your tender spots. Fully guaranteed. $97.00.

How to Overcome SAD, Depression and Anxiety in 2022

The Vibrant Moment – Remember: Receive Light.
Tools from the Center for New Psychology
Publisher: Dr. Doris Jeanette, Body-Emotions-Energy Teacher
Visit: http://www.drjeanette.com

How many shades of light are you aware of?

If you are a visual artist, you probably notice light more than the
rest of us. This is the season we celebrate light and need more light
to feel good and be healthy. You could be proactive this winter and
keep the low energy of SAD and depression away from you. Let there
be light. The lights of Hanukkah and Christmas are glorious to behold
and feel so good in your whole body.

Researchers have found a white paint that is so white that if you use
it on your house, even in hot places, you do not need air conditioners.
Wow, that brings home the difference in shades of white light. If you
look up white, house paint, there are a mind-blogging variety of colors.
I picked the whitest paint I have ever seen for my office. It reminds
me of the white buildings on Santorini. White with no yellow or blue
or red. The whole island of Santorini is painted white with black
sand and a black volcano just off its coast. Glorious sunlight bounces
all around, reflecting off the sparkling, everlasting water.

I have a friend who can sense the dramatic difference in the winter
light as opposed to summer light. I cannot—yet. The first place I
traveled that I did notice a different light was Katmandu, Nepal. The
light in the Himalayas was definitely different. I still cannot put
my finger on how it was different. However, I could see it and
feel it. When in the Rockies and other mountains in the US, I do not
sense the same light as I experienced in Febbruary 1983 in Katmandu.

I am excited to be tuning up my sensor to become more aware of light
this season. Winter Solstice is coming and the light will be
increasing for you to enjoy and receive. Notice light around you.
Take a moment, to make the moment, more vibrant, by being still and
receiving more of what is outside of you. Breathe in the light and
see where it goes in your body. Breathe out the light and see if the
color has changed. Light is full of different colors, shades and
weight!

Walking in my neighborhood today in Center City, Philadelphia, I saw
bright yellow irises in full bloom. Wow! December 13. Their light is
getting to my head as I write this, so I have more energy and am
happier to be alive. May you find more energy and increased happiness
as you tune into the lights on this planet and inside of yourself.

Let your cells soak up the light so they radiate light into the world.

How to Overcome Insomnia and Sleep without Worry

The Vibrant Moment – Remember: Learn to Relax.

===========================

CertaPet published a study that focuses on seasonal depression in
people & pets. The study, based on keyword searches, shows that
insomnia is the top mental health condition in every state for people
who use the Internet. Very interesting study. Let me share my bias
with you: I would have guessed anxiety would be the most searched
mental health concern. As a psychologist, I often forget that many
people do not know they are anxious, but they do know they cannot
sleep!

Sleep. Such a simple, natural, essential behavior as going to sleep
can be interrupted easily by anxiety, worry and fear. Fear is real.
Anxiety is irrational. Worry is useless. Therefore, the only time you
need to stay awake is when there is a real fear. Humans used to stay
awake to keep the fire burning. If the fire went out, there was
trouble in the land, clan and tribe. Some of you may still have deep
inside of you an old fear of “things in the night,” like our African
ancestors used to have.

If you are having trouble sleeping, it is essential to get the help
you need to deal with any real fears so you can rest easy at night.
After you have taken care of reality, then you need to get serious
about letting go of control and allowing your body and mind to relax.
Some people worry at night. Some people worry during the day. Some
people worry all the time.

To sleep better, notice when you are worrying and consciously shift
into relaxing your body and mind. If you focus on your breathing this
helps you stop worrying. You may have to pull your awareness away
from worry more than once. Focus on breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe
in. Keep at it. Let me know if you are successful; I love feedback.
Paying attention to nothing but my breathing allows me to go to sleep
when I use it correctly.

To stop worrying in general, you need to reduce your overall anxiety.
This means you must spend time unlearning your anxiety responses,
one step at a time. To break free, use your relaxation response in real
life to relax during stressful moments. When you relax, you have
vibrant moments. Vibrant moments are worth the effort it takes to get
back in your body so you enjoy the real world around you.

How to Heal Repressed Trauma

The Vibrant Moment – Remember: Do Not Talk.
Tools from the Center for New Psychology
Publisher: Dr. Doris Jeanette, Body-Emotions-Energy Teacher

=====================================

A person on the Quora website asked, “How can I access repressed
trauma from my past?”

Some of the Talk Therapist’s answers offered were not empathic or
helpful. Some therapists even challenged the fact that trauma can be
adequately recalled which could make a person’s trauma worse, not
better. When effective, loving answers are not available on Quora is
when I sometimes take the time to offer a more helpful point of view.

Since Freud’s brilliant clinical work with patients, we know many
ways to help people access their unconscious memories. Even though
psychoanalysis was called the “talking cure,” the therapists did not
do much talking. Instead, they encouraged their patients to access
the vital reality living in their dark, deep unconscious. They did
this by encouraging their patients to express anything that came to
their awareness via free association.

Here is my evidence-based answer to the question on Quora about how
to access repressed trauma:

“Wise therapists know that everyone has some repressed childhood
trauma. We have all been hurt. When we are hurt we repress unless we
express. Very few children live in an emotionally safe environment
where they can express their hurt. Repressing your hurt is the mental
health problem and this is the reason you need healing and love.

The best way to recall your repressed childhood trauma is by
listening to your body. Your body holds all of your trauma. Body
awareness must increase so that you cannot be fooled by words and
psychobabble. Psychobabble keeps you stuck forever. Words lie. Your
body cannot lie.

A therapeutic massage would be a safe place to begin. Do not talk.
Listen to your body when it is touched. Feel your emotions. You may
cry soon and the images of one of your traumas could flash into your
awareness. Do not talk. The images could also be of you being
unloving toward someone or yourself. Make sure your massage person
is comfortable allowing you to feel your emotions. Just breathe and
feel. Do not talk.

The reason Talk Therapy is limited is because talking interferes with
emotional expression. After you fully express your emotions in any way
that feels safe to you, you need to learn how to love your wounded
self and heal her wounds. An emotionally safe teacher or therapist
knows how to help you feel your emotions and express your hurt. She
also knows how to help you fully express your hurt so that it is no
longer repressed energy that is trapped in your body.”

Please be careful with how much you talk and the words you say.
Notice the energy and results. Just talking about your trauma
reinforces your experience and can make it worse. The expressive arts
can help you access your trauma. Accessing your trauma does not heal
you. You must fully express your genuine emotions to get rid of the
repressed energy that is held in your body tissue. When you are no
longer defending yourself by constricting your body, healthy, healing
energy begins to flow in the areas that you have allowed to relax.

When you feel healthy flowing energy in your body, you have fully let
go of your repressed trauma. Then and only then, are you free to be
yourself. Freedom is the end result of healing.

If you need guidance staying with your emotions through this healing
process, the Opening the Heart audio series is an effective companion.
You learn to “breathe and feel” as loving vibrations guide and support
you staying with your emotions as long as needed. You need weeks,
not minutes. Listen to the calming sounds often as you step by step
have the courage to remove defensive energy from your body.

==============================

past, you feel more vibrant and present in the moment. You relax and
