Today Is Not That Day

Certain days are painful reminders of the loss of a loved one. September 11 is a day which symbolizes loss and grief on a mass scale, and yet brings it home to all of us on a personal level.

“Today Is Not That Day” is an affirmation designed to help those suffering from the loss of a loved one. Affirmations are positive statements said to yourself to help uplift you from a negative to a more positive state of mind.

Since posting the affirmation “Today Is Not That Day”, I’ve been overwhelmed by requests for more affirmations to help cope with the passing of a loved one.

I was at a loss for what to say or do. The answer came to me during my recent speaking tour in New York City where I was honored to visit the 9-11 Memorial. Watching the somber yet elegant memorial with its immense waterfalls flowing into the void was serene, yet I felt another emotion surge through me–anger. I was angry that such enormous pain was inflicted by cruel hateful fanatics upon so many innocent people—I felt powerless—and then it dawned on me—that’s the key to healing from the past—realizing I was powerless to change it.

How many times do you feel anchored to the chains of the past? Does your mind replay a traumatic event over and over to the point you feel no escape from the pain? Do you find yourself looking to someone else for approval or validation?

You may not even realize how much the past has a grip over your feelings in the present and your view of tomorrow.

Do you focus on events in your past which you feel “robbed” you of your validation, self-esteem or even happiness? Were you treated rudely or cruelly by someone? Maybe it was a family member, friend, classmate, co-worker, boss or stranger.

These negative emotions and experiences are intensified when linked to the death of a loved one. How many times have you wished you could go back in time and save someone’s life?

Given the opportunity everyone would go back in time to save the life of a loved one. With the ability to time travel you could change something about your childhood, career or relationship. You may even want to bring last Saturday night’s winning lottery numbers. As long as you’re swinging in to save the day you might as well become a millionaire—right?

Sounds great! But unless your eccentric genius neighbor Dr. Brown invites you to go for a spin in his DeLorean with its newly upgraded flux capacitor, it’s impossible to change the past.

On a serious note, people tend to feel responsibility for the terrible things which have happened to them whether or not they were at fault. This self-imposed burden of responsibility triggers anger, resentment, guilt, and depression which results in low self-esteem.
Realizing how powerless you are can empower your emotional healing.

When the darkness of negativity overwhelms you as your mind replays the death of a loved one, or some other trauma from your past, look to the Light of powerlessness.

Tell yourself:

“I am powerless to change the fact my loved one died.”
“I am powerless to change the past.”
“I am powerless to change his/her behavior.”
“Today is Not That Day.”

“Today is Not That Day” is a powerful tool in letting you know that while this day may be an anniversary of a loss, you are not emotionally required to catapult back to the pain and sorrow of that day. This may sound simplistic, but people tend to self inflict guilt in order to punish themselves. In other words, if you make yourself feel badly and relive a prior trauma, that somehow you are atoning for the fact someone you love died. This is a natural inclination, yet one you must not embrace. You cannot change the past, and that is why “Today is Not That Day.” Today is a new day not that day in the past which caused you so much sorrow and pain.

Accepting you are powerless to change the past or control the behavior of those who’ve wronged you in the past lifts the weight of responsibility from your heart. This leads to accepting you are the only one responsible for your actions and feelings. It also helps you understand while you cannot change the past, you must learn from it in order to grow personally.

By accepting you have no power to change the past you are now empowered to control the present. The road to healing is not an express lane but rather a long and winding road through many peaks, valleys, and detours, but ultimately you’re the one in the driver’s seat.
You may be powerless over yesterday but you are empowered today for creating a better tomorrow.

Do you suffer from migraines?

If so, there is hope!
I am not a doctor, however my work as personal injury attorney, psychic medium and medical intuitive involves healing. This has led me to discovering a treatment which can “outmaneuver” migraines.

Migraine Facts

It is estimated that 13% of the U.S. population suffer from migraines. This is over 37 million people! A migraine is more than just a headache, it is a debilitating condition which causes people to miss work, school and family activities. Migraines drain you emotionally, physically, spiritually and financially.

In my personal injury law practice, my focus was head injury litigation, which required the study of the human brain and neurology. In my work as a psychic medium medical information is often transmistted to me during communication with spirits.

Drawing upon my background in anatomy and physiology combined with what has been conveyed to me from spirits about migraines, I was guided to conduct additional research which led me to the data bases of the Mayo Clinic and the National Headache Foundation. While the consensus among the medical profession is that there no cure for migraines, there is treatment which does not involve the use of drugs which may reduce the frequency and intensity of migraines.

What causes a migraine?

Migraines are caused by a serotonin surge which is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. This seratonin surge is triggered by the chemical tyramine which is found in many foods, and ones that for the most part are good for you. Unfortunately, they are NOT good for migraine sufferers. There may not be a cure for migraines, but there is a way to outmanuever them.

How do I keep from getting a migraine?

While no treatment is 100% effective, you can significantly decrease the frequency of your migraines.

AVOID ALL: nuts, seeds, red skinned fruits, berries, bananas, pineapple, coconut, avocado, aged cheeses, processed meats (bacon, cold cuts, etc.) and anything with vinegar (pickles, olives, ketchup, mustard).

“What give up bacon? Or beer? No way!”
Ask yourself this, “Is the 30 seconds of enjoyment you get from eating these foods more important than the 48 hours of excruciating head pain, sound sensitivity, loss of vision, loss of income and loss of enjoyment of life?”

Migraines are not only painful, they are dangerous. People who get migraines run an increased risk of getting strokes. So preventing a migraine may help ward off getting a stroke.
Sure, you have to give up some of the foods you like, but a little discipline goes a long way, especially when it comes to your health. Since migraines are caused by a seratonin surge in your brain, the logical approach is to stabilize the seratonin levels.

To stabilize the serotonin levels in your brain take these supplements at least one time per day:
Ginger
CoQ10
Vitamin B2
Feverfew
Turmeric
Magnesium
Peppermint

Butterbur Extract is the most important supplement to take, however the other supplements work in tandem with the Butterbur Extract so do not neglect taking them.

For 30 days take the Butterbur Extract 3 times daily. After 30 days you can reduce the dosage to 2 times per day. The company Petadolex has, in my opinion, the best butterbur extraction process. It is cheapest to order it through Amazon. Health food stores will charge $40-50 per bottle, but you can get it on Amazon for $20-25 per bottle.

My material world research is based on findings from Mayo Clinic and the National Headache Foundation. Just because current medical technology says there is no cure for a migraine, this doesn’t mean you can’t manuever around the cause of migraines and avoid enduring one. This approach may reduce the frequency and intensity of migraines, and reduce your chances of suffering from a stroke.

As Hippocrates, the father of medicine said in 431 B.C. “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food.”

My friend, priest and spiritual mentor, Father Sonny taught “Grief is the price of love. We grieve as deeply as we have loved.”

Anyone who has lost a loved one is painfully aware of the truth of this statement.

But what about grieving for those we didn’t know personally? Is that real grief?

Every year we lose celebrities and 2016 has been no exception. The world lost household names like Natalie Cole, David Bowie, Merle Haggard, Prince, Arnold Palmer, Florence Henderson and George Michael to name just a few.

Yet the deaths of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds bring home to all of us the devastation of grief. Who couldn’t admire Carrie Fisher as the courageous and swashbuckling Princess Leia and Debbie Reynolds who on the silver screen portrayed Titanic Survivor the “Unsinkable Molly Brown?” Both on and off screen these women exuded the many facets of feminine strength and energy.

As a Star Wars fan (okay, I’ll admit it, I love Science Fiction) I was shocked when Carrie Fisher died. Then a day later her mother the iconic Debbie Reynolds was rushed to the hospital and died.

Like millions of people worldwide I am stunned and somehow feel a personal sense of loss—why?

Mourning Sickness is a real phenomenon and part of what is known as “Mass Grief.” It is a reaction to the pain and suffering of others whom you don’t know personally yet somehow feel akin to during this time of pain. The death of someone we admire yet do not really know can and does cause real pain.

It isn’t silly to feel the pain of loss for a public figure. What it demonstrates is your humanity. It shows how the vast majority of humans actually do care about their fellow humans. This is a good thing!

Did Debbie Reynolds, like so many people around the world, die of a broken heart in response to the death of her child?

The experts agree the answer is “Yes.”

Broken Heart Syndrome according to the Mayo Clinic and the American Heart Association is a temporary heart condition that’s often brought on by stressful situations, such as the death of a loved one. In other words, your grief can cause you to die of heart failure even if you have a healthy heart.

Due to the overwhelming pain of stress, there’s a temporary disruption of your heart’s normal pumping function in one area of the heart. Broken heart syndrome may be caused by the heart’s reaction to a surge of stress hormones. Studies have indicated that women are more likely than men to experience Broken Heart Syndrome.

The good news: Broken heart syndrome is usually treatable. Most people who experience it make a full recovery within weeks.

What To Look For: Signs and Symptoms: The most common signs and symptoms of broken heart syndrome are angina (chest pain) and shortness of breath. You can experience these things even if you have no history of heart disease. Seek immediate medical treatment!

It is vital to acknowledge that the physical pain of loss is as severe as the emotional pain. This is why expressing and confronting your grief is the healthy thing to do:

  • Allow yourself time to grieve. This is especially difficult for men who tend to suppress emotional expression for fear of appearing weak. (Guys, it takes a real man to confront his pain—we have feelings and tear ducts for a reason).
  • Have a good cry! Recent medical studies have found that tears of grief actually contain stress hormones and other toxins which cause grief. Crying not only purges these chemicals from your body it also stimulates production of endorphins which are the “feel good” hormones in our body. Crying doesn’t make one weak, it can actually strengthen you emotionally and physically. So, if you feel the urge to shed tears of grief for a deceased loved one–do it! It will make you feel better.
  • Above all do not suppress your feelings. When we suppress our feelings, we slow the recovery process. It is okay to express your feelings and it is okay to cry. As I describe in detail in Evidence of Eternity, “Grief leads to crime which leads to grief.”

If Star Wars taught us anything it is realization that the person you love has not ceased to exist but has transferred to a different dimension. The energy of our consciousness, our soul, who and what we are lives on in the Light.

May the Force Be with You!
