Saving A Life With Thoughts And Energy

Saving A Life With Thoughts And Energy

October 14, 2021

Can you save a life with positive thought and energy?  This is part three of Saving A Life.  This three part series is based on my personal and professional experience as a therapist and friend.

This episode looks into the possibility of being able to help someone who at risk of self harming and taking their life with thoughts and energy.

There are numerous studies and fields of therapy which support the notion that thoughts, when positively focused, have the power to change behaviours.  I mention Dr. Emoto's Messages In Water and the Maharishi Effect.  Quantum Touch, Body Talk and Reiki are also means of using energy to promote healing.

Whether you believe this can have any effect or not, it is another tool in the healing process.  Please listen to the entire series.  There are lives to be helped.

Have you ever known someone with great talent? Of course you have.  Now, have you ever watched that person melt down and try kill themselves?  I hope not.

Many years ago I hired and fired such a person after, not known to me, he lost a dear friend and then tried to kill himself while on "the job."  Here is the story.

Part 3 coming soon.

Saving A Life With Hope

Saving A Life With Hope

September 8, 2021

Suicide; we have all experienced the loss of a loved one, friend or acquaintance.  It is said, if a person wants to self harm, there is nothing you can do.  I'm going to pass on this one.  There is something.  There are many things.  Each has the potential to make a positive difference in that person's life.

We have got to find a way to bring hope to the at risk.

I share this based on my personal and professional experience.  I don't have all the answers; I do have some experience.  Listen with care and caution.  Message me with questions and experiences if you want to share.

Work Before Family And The Fallout

Work Before Family And The Fallout

August 4, 2021

Talking with a friend and former radio colleague about how hard we worked on our careers, to make money thinking it was best for the family. 

The years of missing time with the kids and a failed marriage or two really makes you sit back and wonder if it was worth it all.  Then, there is the guilt and shame as your kids grow older and you work to be a better father in their lives.  Life really needs to be about balance.  It took me into my 40's before I realized that.

Have you ever sat down to talk with somebody about one thing only to have the conversation go in a different direction? 

That very thing happened to me as I talked with Jenn Schmidt-Rempel about running for Lethbridge City Council.  I was left with a new appreciation for my long time friend, for what she has done and what she is planning to do.

Thank you Jenn!
