Feeling Rejected Or Left Out? Heal Your Heart With This

TRANSMUTE FEELING REJECTED, ABANDONED AND UNINVITED WITH THIS VIDEO FROM THE DIVINE HEART AND MY HEART TO YOURS!

I don’t think there is a one of us who hasn’t had our heart hurt because we felt excluded – not invited to the party, the dinner, the project, the meeting, the whatever. And when that happens, doesn’t it feel like you are 7 years old again and you didn’t get invited to sit at the cool kids table. Ouch. Feeling rejected hurts.

Why You Should Get Angry; Lean In To Be Liberated

Angry

A friend recently did something that made me truly question their character.
Well, to be honest, they did a few somethings that made me raise an eyebrow, but this was the very last straw and I found myself feeling pissed.

Like, flames-coming-out-of-my-ears angry.

New Year

Ever feel like your life is a great-big ping-pong match (and you’re the ball)? You know what I’m talking about…living in reactive mode 24/7 just trying to keep all the plates in the air. It’s exhausting!

Think Big

I’ve had a number of experiences in the past few months which have both inspired me and challenged me to think big (and also to look at the ways in which I don’t.) All too often we let our egos, our fears, our perceived limitations, or our selfish motivations get in our way from thinking big.

In this week’s video blog I talk about this phenomenon and how we can get out of our own way, with compassion, and challenge ourselves to think big in an authentic way.

What Are Bodies About And For?

satellite dish, remote control, television screen

I have written, in other places, about our Creator’s latest parable relating to us that we are satellite dishes, remote controls and television screens. To clarify the meaning of these words for those, who like me have problems with parables, we are receivers of words and images and have minds, like remotes, with which we can select the channels we tune in to and we have bodies, like screens, to act out and make visible what we have heard. The problem is that people are usually not tuning in to the right channel and listening to the right voice speaking the message of creation, which is to serve, rather than the voice of destruction or self interest.

An Ice Cream Carol

Ice Cream Carol

“Wake up and piss, the world’s on fire,” my step-dad used to yell up to me every morning through the railing of my bedroom loft. I would simply roll over and wonder what my mother saw in this vile man whom, with bitter irony, would get so plastered drinking Milwaukee’s Best that he’d forget where the bathroom was and piss next to the coal burning stove. Had I had more balls at age fourteen I would have hollered back to him that he had already put out the fire the night before. Alas I did not. It seems for my whole life the universe has been coming up with new and sardonic ways of getting my ass out of bed.

“This One? Or That One? What Do YOU Think?” The Misery Of Second-Guessing — And How To Stop It.

This One Or That One?
There was a time in my life when my nickname probably should have been Suzanne “Second-Guess” Gelb.

I remember one particular moment — so vividly — when my mother bought me a new pair of pants to wear to school. Even at a very tender age, my second-guessing-itis had already taken hold.

“Should I wear these pants? I think they look nice. But maybe not. I don’t know. Are they cool? Or stupid-looking? I’ll wait and see if anybody else at school is wearing this style … if somebody else wears them first, then it’s probably fine …”

The Power Of Simple Questions

disappointed and discouraged

I spent last week sick with a chest cold, exhausted from promoting my new book, Free Yourself, on radio shows, social media, and an East Coast tour this fall. But as I lay sick on my deck, soaking up rays, I noticed a pressure on my heart. Along with deep exhaustion from a busy year of editing, proofreading and promoting, I felt disappointed and discouraged that a few close friends were too busy to help me.
