    Getting Lost in Caregiving

    in Caregiving

    Before you know it, you can feel that your caregiving responsibilities have swallowed you up.

Call us during our live show to share your experiences.

    Setting Boundaries

    in Spirituality

    Join Sue Graywolf Petruzzi, Sharon Bar Or, Ronda Davis and Sandra Kay Trainer-Meyer for the  “Women’s Healing Hour” with a powerful webcast of Ciracle Radio on Sunday, May 17th at 1 PM MST, 3 PM EST, 8 PM London and 10 PM Israel time.  


    Many of us, especially women (and some men also), have been taught that we are to take care of everyone’s needs before our own.  This would include any chores or things that need attending to on a daily basis.  When you create this kind of atmosphere around yourself, others around you may expect it.  Then, when you start to understand what you have created for yourself, you may feel “victimized” and become irritated and bitter.  As quoted by Sandra “Most of us were never really taught how to set and maintain healthy boundaries. We were taught to put others needs before our own, and the attachment to keeping others happy is pretty tenacious. Pleasing others becomes our currency and the way we purchase love and attention. Each time you set a healthy boundary, you say yes to more freedom. Let freedom ring... A'ho”


    Once again, we need to love ourselves enough to “NOT LOOK” outside of ourselves for that love and attention.  By setting boundaries we are honoring “OUR WALK” and thus allowing spirit to guide what “WE NEED” for a healthy and happy life. Come and join us as we walk through this subject together, sharing ways to gently, but firmly, set boundaries that will make our lives more enjoyable and fulfilling.


    Our listeners ARE our shows. They speak and share with we hosts and create amazing energy. Come on board and feel it! Be part of the change.

    Care Break: If There's So Many of Us, Why Is Caregiving So Lonely?

    in Caregiving

    Pew Research Center released a study in 2013 that says about 39% of U. S. adults–up from 30% in 2010–care for an adult or child with significant health issues.


    In other words, two in every five individuals are family caregivers.


    I’ve been thinking about this number because I can’t quite get it to add up.


    Here’s why. If 39% of U.S. adults are family caregivers, why is caregiving still such a lonely and isolating experience? Why, every year in our annual family caregiver survey, do you talk about the loneliness of the experience? Why haven’t more programs and services been added in your community to help you? Why do you still worry about telling your boss about your caregiving responsibilities? Why doesn’t the doctor’s office share a list of caregiving resources to help you? Why doesn’t a home health agency refer you to a website, like ours, so you can connect with others in a similar situation? Why can’t you find a family restroom to assist your caree?


    Why is caregiving still an experience that feels like it’s just you rather than one that feels like it’s you plus (and within) a community that supports?


    Bruce and I will share our thoughts about why we think caregiving is still such a lonely experience.

    Setting Boundaries!

    in Spirituality

    On the show tonight Rosie is going to discuss "setting boundaries" in your life especially with difficult people.  Boundaries are like fences that protect our heart and soul.  We all need to define what is and what isn't permissible in our relationships in life and to construct protective boundaries to defend those decisions.


    Setting guidelines or boundaries (whatever you want to call them) is one of the most important and valuable things we can do for our relationships.  It doesn't matter how fancy the fence we build is or how descriptive the words we use to build it are.. The point is that we make the effort to define what we will tolerate within a relationship and what we will not allow.


    At the bottom of the hour Rosie will be joined by Leslie Hale for the weekly "Astro-Talk" segment.  Mercury Retrograde has arrived along with other planetary changes that are having an effect on our day to day existance and Leslie will help us identify what is going to be happening in the next week and what we need to be aware of.   You can see Leslie's newsletter at www.lesliehale-astrology.com
