"I'm all for clearing the air, which I didn't make clear.  When two people have inflicted pain on one another, intentionally or unintentionally, those pains will just fester.  So, clear the air, even if it hurts you both. …"

"This is a good story, but a sad one.  You obviously are hurt, if not angry.  However, I urge you to try to heal your relationship with your sisters.  I've lost a brother and a sister, and both parents.  I can tell you, those…"

Reduce Stress: Eliminate Negative Self-talk

Posted on January 28, 2013 at 12:56pm 2 Comments

Doctors at Mayo Clinic say positive thinking helps with stress management and can even improve your health. They suggest eliminating negative self-talk.

Here are some examples of negative self-talk:

Filtering. You magnify the negative aspects of a situation and filter out all of the positive ones. For example, say you had a great day at work. You completed your tasks ahead of time and were complimented for doing a speedy and thorough job. But you forgot one…

Are you easily offended?  Many people are, and it makes them miserable.  It doesn’t have to be that way.  You can control your thoughts.  It isn’t easy, but it can be done.  I write about that in my book, Thought: An Awesome Creative Force.



I encountered two unhappy people today while I was trying to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee in a local…

Thought: An Awesome Creative Force

Posted on January 21, 2013 at 12:06pm 0 Comments

Introduction

If there is a universal problem with people in the 21st century, it’s that they simply don’t think. I should qualify that by saying, they don’t think the right way. They don’t think of the consequences of their thoughts, of their words, of their actions. They don’t understand the awesome creative power of their thoughts.

All creatures are supplied at birth with everything they need for survival and for success. All creatures except man are supplied…

Welcome!

With any new site, we understand that finding your way around can be a bit daunting. To help you use our site, we have a few resources and tips, all of which can be found on pages under the Support tab in your top menu bar. They are:

FAQ- here you can find some quick answers to general questions, questions about privacy and about site features.

Site News, Tips & Tricks - this is our forum where you can find tips on using the site, news about site changes and other information from the staff and other members.

Our Terms Of Service and Our Copyright Policy can also be found under the Support tab.

You may also find additional help by going to chat and asking another member. Chat can be found in 2 place: There is a CHAT link in your top menu which will open chat in your browser.

The other option for opening chat is to use the small tabs at the bottom of most pages. The tab named "Opium Den" (our chat name) will open the in a small pop up window at the bottom of the screen. This window can also be resized or 'popped-out' and used as a separate window.

There is a "Members Online" tab on the bottom of your page too. This will show which other members are logged in (logged in does not mean they are active in the chat, simply they are logged in to the site). There is a small speaker icon which will allow you to adjust the chat beeps which many prefer to turn off or down when not actively chatting.

We have many excellent features and tools here. While it may seem overwhelming at first, the basics of posting and commenting are simple and before too long we hope you will feel comfortable and at home.

Bang around, explore, write, comment and most of all have fun!

Feel free to delete this comment.
