    Talk Back Tuesdays: Hello Grief, Goodbye Sorrow! Its a New Day

    in Self Help

    Celebrating Mothers Everyday! And what about the Baltimore mother yesterday? It's the month of May and Mothers have one day.  Women function in many roles that include, the secure, and sometimes-tumultuous task of Motherhood. Grief is a short word that describes variant degrees of loss.  It could be as simple as losing a favorite pair of shades, to disappointing a child by not keeping your word, then the ultimate losses, such as loosing a child.  The many hats of Mother (earth) can keep us moving so fast we can feel overwhelmed, emotionally burned out, and just plain ole tired.  Many of use are not able to identify grief as a source of angst, thereby unable to develop skills that allow healing of the heart.  Learning to identify grief can mean the difference between generational trauma, and having love, life, and laughter.  This week on talk back Tuesdays join 3 counselors and a couch as we begin the month of May dedicating issues of health and wellness to the Mothers of this earth.  Whether you have given birth to children, or given the responsibility of molding the mind of a child, its imperative our soil remain fertile without feeding them contaminants that pass throughout generations.  Come get on the Couch!

    "Signs from the Afterlife" with Author Lyn Ragon

    in Spirituality

    Join your Host and Medium Pamela Marie Edmunds as she welcomes to tonight's show Author Lyn Ragon.  They will be discussing Lyn's newest book "Signs from the Afterlife."


    More About Lyn Ragon;


    Lyn Ragan knew at the age of fourteen she would write a book one day. She subscribed to True Crime and True Detective, reading each edition faithfully while plotting her fiction novel she never wrote. Twenty-five years later, she met the love of her life never thinking she’d be involved in a real-life crime. After her fiancé’s murder, she followed his guidance by way of ADC’s, (After Death Communications). From the other side, Chip insisted she write their story. Despite her struggles with grief and added defiance, she reluctantly gave in. Following Chip’s communications, she penned their first book, Wake Me Up! Love and The Afterlife.


    Years later, Lyn was moved to write again. Encouraged to share their deepest connections, she intuitively used his words as inspiration and titled their second book, We Need To Talk: Living With The Afterlife. While writing her novels, Lyn was introduced to the spiritual arts of energy work. She pursued an intense meditation practice and went on to study Reiki Healing, Auric Energies, and Chakra Balancing. She later used her studies to become a professional Aura Photographer, an Ordained Minister, a Children’s Book author, and a publisher. Lyn is excited to bring her talents together in order to touch the lives of others with Chip’s communications from the Afterlife. She lives in Atlanta with her fur-kids, Scooby and Chipper. Lyn can be found online at www.LynRagan.com, and on Facebook at WeNeedToTalkBook, or WakeMeUpBook.

    GIVE THE ENEMY NO SPACE, ENCOURAGE YOURSELF IN THE LORD!

    in Spirituality

    1 SAMUEL 30 1-3    By the time David and his menENTERED the village, it had been burned to the ground, and their wives, sons, and daughters all taken prisoner. All of us face difficulties in our lives. But we can have victory over them if we keep our eyes on God. As David sat among the ruins of Ziklag and men spoke of stoning him, he had a choice. David could allow grief and bitterness to conquer him; he could sink into the black hole ofDEPRESSION and give up and quit. Or he could fightBACK.


     


    But before David could fight, he would have to get his strength and courage back.  David  saw nothing but discouraged and downcast men. David had no one to encourage him, so he had only one recourse: He "encouraged himself in the Lord his God”.
