SORT BY Relevancy
This is a very personal subject for me. My sister suffered with Bipolar disorder and Schizophrenia for most of her life. My family and I recognized her struggles when she was in junior high school. Her mood swings were severe and she was almost impossible to relate to or communicate with in a rational way. I became very distanced from her. I was the bubbly, outgoing type and I just couldn’t understand her depression and sadness. And sometimes she could be very mean, and that shook me because she was really a very kind person at heart. During this time it never occurred to my parents to take her to a doctor for a diagnosis of a mental illness. They just thought it was a phase and she’d outgrow it. Things escalated in her high school years and finally, when she was a senior, she was diagnosed with the 2 mental illnesses I spoke of above. Problem was, she was 18 and she wouldn’t go on the medication. She was sure it would harm her. So she spent her life in and out of depression and unfathomable agony. Her life seemed joyless and this affected me greatly. This story ends sadly; last year my sister passed away. Her paranoia kept her from ever going to a doctor and her body just wore itself out from untold sickness that was never diagnosed. – I have so much knowledge now about Essential Oils and how many ways they can heal our bodies and minds. It’s a true shame that I was never able to reach her with all of this. I can, however, tell you about some oils that can work alongside medications to help with people’s symptoms http://www.buyessentialoilshere.com/more-success-stories/bipolar-disorder-and-essential-oils/
Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org
Born in Andalusia, Juan de Padilla, was a soldier before he came a Franciscan friar. He held several positions of authority in Mexico. Padilla was one of four Franciscans to accompany Francisco Vasquez de Coronado on his expedition to colonize New Mexico in 1540. The expedition was encouraged by reports of riches from Cabeza de Vaca and his companions, the survivors of the ill fated Navarez expedition.
Padilla was guardian of a convent at Jalisco at the time the expedition began. He gave up his high position in the church in order to become a missionary to the native people to the north. It was his hope to educate and convert the people to the religion he taught.
Father Padilla was known to be kind and gentle yet full of energy. He punished those who caused unpleasantness in Coronado's camp. At first he worked with the Moqui Pueblos. He spent winter quarters with Coronado on the Rio Grande river, where the army rested before continuing the historic journey to the fabled Quivira.

Life Enthusiasm with Bryan Crusius
Thursday October 23, 2014 @ 1 pm (CST) Healthy Mind & Body is proud to welcome, my friend Bryan Crusius.
John ‘Bryan’ Crusius, LPC, LPC-S - believes in treating the ‘whole’ person: Body, Mind and Spirit. He agrees with AA (Alcoholics Anonymous): Recovery from addiction is difficult to impossible without reliance on a Higher Power.
Infused Being Therapy and Counseling
Infused Being Therapy, comes from a strong believe that recovery from addiction and trauma is a process. For successful recovery and healing – clients have to be willing to ‘let go and let their Higher Power’ guide and heal them. This is the basic process; there are many details, much understanding and deeper self-knowledge to be attained along the way.
Supportive Energy Therapies: Integrated Healing
Bryan uses various Energy Therapies as an adjunct to traditional cognitive talk therapy. Much research has been done on acupuncture and related energy healing methodologies. Many believe (and I agree) that it is possible to support intellectual talk therapy with energy healing. In my experience, energy healing treats more of the whole person; including Body and Spirit.

Talk to you then,
Life's Purpose is Service is a continuation of our theme, "Service: A Path to Happiness." Thank you for joining us on blog talk radio, "Happiness Index."
What is the meaning of service? Is service an international convention agreed by all people? Assuming one works as a cook, dishwasher, taxi driver, bank manager, City Council person, all these positions are paid service positions. Does one focus on the fruit of the service or the work? Why is true service, the road less travelled by most people?
Service as life’s purpose can be an impossible task if one is looking for a short cut to self-actualization.
Let us focus on Dr. Kings words about service, "Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verbs agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love." Thank you again for tuning in to "A Happiness Index," found on www.blogtalkradio.com.
Rant time, and a break from politics... Mike goes to the wonder of denial.
A murder, child molestation or other horror happens. Is your immediate response that it never happens or simply can't happen on our block, in your neighborhood or in our town? That's human, but pretty silly.
Even withi mass murders, nieghbors often initially say it isn't true, because, "I kinow him. He's a nice guy."
There are many dynamics working here. We'll touch on chauvsnism and the various flavors of denial, including it didn't happen, to it couldn't happen, to it wasn't as bad as all that, to some outsiders did it.
You are4 welcome to join in with your own takes and tales (no blocked or anonymous calls connected). 718-664-6966
Who is a backslider? Hebrew 6:4-6 says, For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to comtemp.
Ask yourself, are you in the church, backsliden? Have you repented and got back on track?

Today's Radio Show/Podcast is called "A Piece of Blink."
Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant-in the blink of an eye-that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, while others end up stumbling into error? How do our brains really work-in the office, in the classroom, in the kitchen, and in the bedroom? And why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others?

What is your dream? What have you given up on because you thought it was impossible?
Exposing what is in the way from what is possible is the topic on Monday nights.
What is it that you can’t do? What is the thought that is stopping you from getting to your dream?
I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
If you have passion you can do anything, passion is what makes miracles happen.
Monday nights coaches will be Luis Barrios, Catherine Malcom and Diane Cady here to discuss where they have been stopped and where you maybe stopped too. Call in and see what is possible for you!
