    in Religion

    The prototypical perfectionist is someone who will go to great (and often unhealthy) lengths to avoid being average or mediocre, and who takes on a "no pain, no gain" mentality in their pursuit of greatness. Although perfectionists aren't necessarily high achievers, perfectionism is frequently tied to workaholism


    Demonic means indwelled with a spirit or mental disposition that
    gives you a higher IQ or intellectual capacity. What makes you demonic is REPETITION; DISSATISFACTION AND PERFECTIONISM.

    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./

    Close-Up Talk Radio spotlights Charlie Birch of Being Human Ally, Inc.

    in Motivation

    Boulder, CO – We’re taught from day one that hard work is the key to success – that rest is the opposite of productivity and play is the opposite of responsibility – so it’s no wonder that workaholism has quietly become one of the biggest problems facing our culture today.

    Unlike drugs and alcohol, our culture reinforces our addiction to work even at the expense of our physical health. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, 76.2 million Americans suffer from some form of chronic pain. It isn’t hard to draw the connection.

    Charlie Birch is the founder of Being Human Ally, Inc., a holistic coaching practice specializing in pain management and workaholic recovery. Through a one-on-one coaching program, which draws from Charlie's own experience recovering from both chronic pain and workaholism, Being Human Ally helps clients restore a sense of balance in their lives and build a new sustainable lifestyle.

    “What else could I be better qualified to help people with than the two things that were the hardest for me to overcome?” says Charlie. “I can relate to my clients and I can offer really clear advice. It worked for me and I’m not so different that it should only work for me.”

    Manny Hagman - Awakening One Step at a Time

    in Spirituality

    Manny Hagman is a Loveworker/Musician and Writer from Austin, Texas.

    In April 2013, Manny experienced a breakdown/break through from years drug abusive, workaholism, and ungrounded, self inflicted spiritual abuse.

    After attending a transformative weekend through the New Warrior Training with the Mankind Project, Manny finally became aware of the power and Truth of his being. With inspiration from everyday life, he began openly sharing his experiences, pain, fears, and triumphs with the world through his Facebook page Manny Diaz - Awakening One Step at a Time.

    Manny takes a grounded approach to spirituality, choosing to look at the physical world as the source for healing.

    Manny hopes to inspire others through his writing and authentic living. Manny is on a mission to model authentic living to those who might be scared or confused on how to do so.

    Manny believes that vulnerability and transparency are keys to help others heal and return mankind to Unity consciousness and awareness. He believes that spiritual healers have the greatest impact when they reveal their human side to others and let them the world know it’s ok to be who we are, as we are, where we are.

    Mindful Awareness: Emotional sobriety

    in Self Help

    The pillars of Mindful Awareness:
    Non-judging -becoming the observer develops empathy and compassion for self and others Patience - training the mind to refrain from auto-pilot reactiveness by  choosing to  respond with loving kindness Beginners mind - training the mind to become present Trust- ourselves so that we can trust the unfolding process Non-striving- no action is an an action of self-mastery, choosing instead to observe  Acceptance - bridges the conscious and unconscious states of being in the present Letting go As a rule, most defects of character involve some imbalance in the expression of and the experience of our most basic human needs. For example, sexuality and ambition are problematic when  our experiences of those drives are imbalanced or codependent.
    If we are addicted to intensity that is expressed  either  acting out sexually  or are driven by  unbridled ambition to the point of workaholism, these expressions have become hardwired habits and are defects we can address. Our sixth step prayers need not be "Make me sexually anorexic " or "I will live an austere life as Nun or a Monk " 
    Rather, we might pray, "I surrender. May I personify  healthy expression of my sexuality" or "Channel ambition into enhancing my private life as well as my work life."
    We are behaving authentically when our beliefs, actions, goals, and results are aligned with who we are—our self. It is a congruence between our actions and our strengths, values and goals.
    We become authentic when the path we choose through life is congruent with who we are. It is a congruence between who we are and what we do. An authentic choice is a decision congruent with doing your best.
