Five Signs You’re Out of Rhythm (Claim Your Freedom #9)

 

About a decade ago I made the swap from Windows-based computers to Apple. The upside is that all of my devices connect and communicate with one another seamlessly. If I type something into the Notes app on my iPhone, it appears on my laptop. And if I edit it there, the corrections...

The Pause is Often Enough (Claim Your Freedom #8)

I wrestled in high school. Though an aggressive sport which pits one man against another in a battle of strength, stamina, and technique, very few accidents and injuries ever occurred during the six years I participated. On the rare instances when they did, wrestling tournaments always stopped....

Roots & Fruits, Causes & Symptoms- Addiction (Claim Your Freedom #7)

You might have listened to the previous talk and thought, “Oh. He just inferred we can easily rewrite the script- that if we don’t like the story we’re living, we can just sprinkle in some new characters, change the scenery, add a few power-ups, and then move forward.”

No...

The Story We Tell Ourselves is the Reality We Sell Ourselves (Claim Your Freedom #6)

A few talks ago, we discussed perception- and how that perception often becomes our reality if we’re not careful to separate what we think we see from what we actually see (we discussed perception vs. reality at www.Jenkins.tv/blog/perception.). Then we discussed internal rules-...

Self-Protective Self (Claim Your Freedom #5)

In January 2019 I wrote Emotional Wholeness Checklist, a book about feelings and the importance of recognizing them in ourselves. The premise is this: all of our feelings- both the ones we typically consider to be “good” and those we often consider to be “bad”- are...

The Goal = Health (Claim Your Freedom #4)

Emotional health (in fact, health in general) isn’t so much about what’s wrong with us as it is about what’s right- and walking into what’s even better. In our medically-driven, diagnosis-prone Western world we’ve been conditioned to look at problems rather than...

Spoiler Alert- Perception ≠ Reality (Claim Your Freedom #3)

You’ve probably heard the phrase “Perception is reality” a few times. 

As correct as that statement sounds, it’s just not accurate. Perception might be reality, but it might not be. Perception might just be the way you view things. Again , perception might be...

Live Inside-Out, Not Outside-In (Claim Your Freedom #2)

King Solomon said, “The righteous are as bold as a lion.” The flip side, he wrote, is that “the wicked flee when no one pursues” (Proverbs 28:1).

When you get to the place Eminem found himself in that film I referenced in our intro, you can be bold. When you realize your...

I Took the Psych Eval (Claim Your Freedom #1)

Last Fall I did something I never imagined I would do: I took a psychological evaluation. A full one. The kind that has hundreds of questions followed by a sit-down interview with a licensed psychologist. 

To say it another way, I voluntarily took one of those tests that cost several...

Moral Injury = Overcoming Guilt & Shame

In this talk we build on the previous two, so you may want to roll back to the discussion on PTSD ( https://www.Jenkins.tv/blog/wholeness ) or even the intro to emotions in general ( https://www.Jenkins.tv/blog/baggage ) if you haven’t yet listened to those.

Here, I discuss Moral Injury- a...
