Posted on Dec 2, 2016 in Blog |

It’s a big deal when someone like me gets email from famous, talented, wise authors writing me and telling me what a useful tool this healing journal is. So imagine my glee when THE Dr. Bernie Siegel wrote me several emails telling me how much he loves “The Best Part of My Day Healing Journal”?! He said to feel free to tell people he likes it and believes it to be a helpful healing tool . . . . so I’m telling you! “When you experience joy, happiness and laughter you are more likely to be healthy, recover faster from and resist illness. Recording those positive emotions, recalling them in a journal, is a positive step of therapeutic value.

Who I Am and What I Value

Posted on Nov 11, 2016 in Blog |

An acquaintance sat across the table from another woman. They are both life coaches. They had previously chatted on the phone and were now meeting IRL. One asked the other to tell her about herself – sometimes the hardest and most pointless question ever. She gave her an off the cuff list of what she values in a way to describe who she is. You can read her post here. And she challenged others to do the same. Here are mine (Sharon Elaine Williams Rainey): I am a feeler – I feel my own emotions intensely, unceasingly, and without organization. I feel them as they come, big, small, trivial, life changing. I am an empath – I feel everyone else’s feelings too. With no filter, no order, and no directions. I am writer – I have an incessant need to process my feelings through writing. And I have an incessant need to share my writing with others. The words swirl in my head endlessly until I write them down. I think in words. Pictures are hard for me. Auditory processing is almost nil, so if you want me to remember it, you better write it down and send it to me in an email – because my memory is also shitty. I am a connector. I never seem to know THE some one or thing, but I usually know someone who knows THE some one or thing. I despise conflict. I want everyone to get along. We don’t have to agree, but I demand everyone around me be respectful. If we don’t have respect, we don’t have much else. I am a recovering addict – I have 28 years’ experience of living life on life’s terms, which is still a challenge for me. So I still attend 12 Step meetings to help me remember that the only person, place or thing I can control is ME. I am a learner – I am always looking for the lesson in my daily life. I like to try to learn things the first time around so I don’t have to review them over and over in new situations. I believe that...

#TBYHDC Speaker Sharon Rainey On Healing From Emotional Trauma Through Love

Posted on Oct 17, 2016 in Blog |

http://clubtbyh.com/2016/10/17/tbyhdc-speaker-sharon-rainey-on-how-to-heal-from-emotional-trauma/ How did you originally connect with Robin and the Take Back Your Health Conference? Robin was introduced to me when she was still in high school and just starting this journey. She had made the connection to healing from Rheumatoid Arthritis and food, and she wanted to share her experience, strength and hope with me. She led me to healthy eating. She also showed me great compassion. I was in the roller coaster part of the healing, a lot of ups and downs. One afternoon, Robin brought me an entire meal she made herself. And it was amazing. It was such an act of love to me. Not only did the food help me heal, but her love and compassion were strong healing agents as well. What will you be sharing about at the upcoming Take Back Your Health Conference? I will be sharing about the importance of healing the emotional and spiritual wounds that we hold from traumas in our life. Our doctors can only do so much, and they focus on the physical part of healing. A great doctor will help with the other aspects, but it is usually only the patient who knows the triggers, the traumas, and the willingness to find possible resolutions. If you don’t mind diving right in, can you share a couple of your main symptoms / struggles over the years? I was sick for 30+ years. If there is a symptom, I had it. It wreaked havoc throughout my entire body including stomach ulcers, a tooth killing itself, lower back pain, migraines, lipomas, joint stiffness and pain. I felt like a stone statue, or the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz. It also included bizarre things like itchy ears and vivid nightmares. Is there one thing that you’ve learned from Robin or Take Back Your Health events that has really stuck with you? Eating is key to healing. An anti-inflammatory diet is mandatory for healing. What are a couple of lifestyle tweaks/habits have made the biggest difference for your health? Eating organic food is essential – I had arsenic poisoning when I was first diagnosed. It was from eating...

When the Attitude and Fortitude Just Aren’t There

Posted on Oct 4, 2016 in Blog |

I’ve had an ear infection for almost a week now. If you have had one, you understand the pain. Today, I feel drained, exhausted, sore, and bummed. I’m sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I return to the ENT physician tomorrow for a re-check. But this experience is a good reminder to me of the importance of “full participation in the healing process.” It’s not just what the doctor prescribes us that will heal us. We, as patients, have to do our part as well. That includes the obvious – follow doctor’s orders – REST – Don’t do anything you think your doctor (or family) might not consider good for healing – Eat healthy foods – Laugh for at least 30 minutes each day And what I consider to be most important . . . . find a best part of your day. Now, like I said, not all days are good days. Some days are just not good days. But even as my Dad was dying in the hospital, I found a best part of each day. I found gratitude for something. And finding gratitude is a key element to healing. As Dad lay dying, I found gratitude for the conversations we had, for the laughter and memories we could share, for the intimacy and love shown and felt between us. I could also find gratitude for the end of Dad’s suffering, for him making the final transition to heaven, and for a caring staff to help him in his final days. So maybe it wasn’t a good day yesterday. Maybe today won’t be a good day. But somewhere, look hard, and find the best part of your day. As you search, you might notice your overall attitude improving. And you might find yourself truly searching to find the good in each transaction throughout your day. The best part of my day yesterday, though I was teary and tired and sad, the best part of my day was being able to look through thousands of digitized photos of my family and friends, sharing memories of very special events, noticing little facial gestures that I found precious....
