Tonight I am joined by the author Dr Lesly Devereaux. She will share practical ways that we can break codependence at any point in time, and the sooner the better! What differentiates Breaking Co-Dependency, (order the book @ http://www.breakingcodependencybook.com) from other books on this topic is that you are brought into the life of the author as she navigates being incarcerated while reflecting on the enabling behaviors that put her there in the first place. Through the narrative of the author, a courageous speaker, coach and ordained minister, we are provided a valuable reference on how to break codependency. Its real value begins with the recommendations of how to stop enabling others.
Dr Lesly says....Deal with the demons of enabling; don’t run from them. Running from your problem will only exhaust you. You have heard the expression: you can run but you sure can’t hide. This is true of any situation that you find yourself in which requires you to face ugly truths about yourself. It always seems easier to act like your problem does not exist as opposed to facing it head on. The tendency to avoid internal confrontation is appealing, but it never works.

Today on Aternative Thinking we have the President of The Citizen's Commission on Human Rights, (CCHR), Robert Donson-Smith.
The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) is a nonprofit mental health watchdog, responsible for helping to enact more than 150 laws protecting individuals from abusive or coercive practices. CCHR has long fought to restore basic inalienable human rights to the field of mental health, including, but not limited to, full informed consent regarding the medical legitimacy of psychiatric diagnosis, the risks of psychiatric treatments, the right to all available medical alternatives and the right to refuse any treatment considered harmful.
The questions that triggered the topic tonight was:
"How will you control your feelings to someone that you really care about but does not feel the same way about you?"
Co-dependency is a learned behavior that can be passed down from one generation to another. It is an emotional and behavioral condition that affects an individual’s ability to have a healthy, mutually satisfying relationship. It is also known as “relationship addiction” because people with codependency often form or maintain relationships that are one-sided, emotionally destructive and/or abusive. The disorder was first identified about ten years ago as the result of years of studying interpersonal relationships in families of alcoholics. Co-dependent behavior is learned by watching and imitating other family members who display this type of behavior.
The term "emotional independence" may appear to be contradictory to the human experience and tendency to be drawn emotionally to other people. Despite this, a certain level of emotional independence is a necessary component.
With all that being said we are going to talk about how to help to recognize our dependency and how to over come it. Let's help each other out. We can make it exciting and maybe we can also talk about sex dependency. It is No filters.
Talk to you at at 8pm tonight
How Do Co-dependent People Behave?
Co-dependents have low self-esteem and look for anything outside of themselves to make them feel better. They find it hard to “be themselves.” Some try to feel better through alcohol, drugs or nicotine - and become addicted. Others may develop compulsive behaviors like workaholism, gambling, or indiscriminate sexual activity.
They have good intentions. They try to take care of a person who is experiencing difficulty, but the caretaking becomes compulsive and defeating. Co-dependents often take on a martyr’s role and become “benefactors” to an individual in need. A wife may cover for her alcoholic husband; a mother may make excuses for a truant child; or a father may “pull some strings” to keep his child from suffering the consequences of delinquent behavior.
The problem is that these repeated rescue attempts allow the needy individual to continue on a destructive course and to become even more dependent on the unhealthy caretaking of the “benefactor.” As this reliance increases, the co-dependent develops a sense of reward and satisfaction from “being needed.” When the caretaking becomes compulsive, the co-dependent feels choiceless and helpless in the relationship, but is unable to break away from the cycle of behavior that causes it. Co-dependents view themselves as victims and are attracted to that same weakness in the love and friendship relationships./

in Self Help
Individualism is the way because it is about people being responsible for their own self. Life is more than just a game it is an adventure. My aims is to associate with the true professionals and eventually connect with the world's finest in the creative and business fields.
One of the identifying characteristic of a health relationship is that the people involved have the ability to establish health boundaries. So what are boundaries? Think of a fenced in backyard. A fence is designed to keep things out and at the same time keep things in. Jennifer Kass (2013) made the following statement about a yard that doesn't have a fence:
"When you find yourself having difficulty saying “no” to others, doing things out of feelings of guilt or obligation, attempting to please others even at the expense of what's best for you, or not expressing your thoughts and feelings when someone upsets you, you are putting yourself last and putting others first — which doesn't serve any of the parties involved."
When we fail to set boundaries, relationships seldom grow. Want to learn more, join us today as we continue our discussion on breaking free from co-dependency. One of the ways to do that is to establish healthy boundaries.

On Thursday July 10th, 2014 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will
continue our discussion of the Western psychic center (chakra) arrangement established by Boehme and Gitchel based on the Qabalah in relation to the Eastern (an adopted Western) sequence based on Alchemy. Again our guest will be Frater Osiris. We will look at the Chemical Wedding of Christian Rosenkrutz and conjecture what the secret "Key" to its symbolism might be. We will examine David Goddard's "Tower of Alchemy" in relation to these themes and attempt to reconcile the practice of both systems. This will be an exploratory symposium which may generate as many questions as it answers, but we at least promise to
stimulate your mind -- so tune in and we will at least try to define the mysteries even if we cannot solve them.
