A DAY OF REMINDERS – LOVE, WENDY

“Today in a moment of grace, I was reminded of the path of destruction that my former substance use disorder has left on another’s long and winding road…

I was also reminded that while I was deeply unwell, and feel deep remorse over the pain that I unintentionally inflicted, there are some that are unwilling and/or unable to forgive. And of course, I empathize with their feelings, and I respect their choices. I too was once a victim of these same circumstances.

The pain that one has experienced bears scars that are just too deep to heal without treatment. And, when one refuses to speak their own truth to express their suppressed emotions, to validate their emotions, and to allow themselves to be validated, to process, and to forgive, they themselves remain unwell.

Further, I am reminded that all of this is out of my control. I have done my part, over and over again. Perhaps the trauma is that knife still impaled into the soul.

I have used this day as an opportunity for reflection of my past life, and have also reflected on these past nine years of my wellness recovery from addiction. I will not live in a space of guilt and shame. There is no guilt and shame in being unwell. I offer myself fully in the present day, every day in complete wellness in sobriety.

I continue to command respect. I continue to remind myself that I never walk alone. I continue to pray for grace and healing for all.

Thy will be done.”

Love and blessings,

BROKEN-LOVE, WENDY

“When everybody does the “wrong” thing and hurts others in the family, it can break the family dynamic.

If nobody wants to speak their truth in order to discuss the real underlying issues, the family remains broken.

Most of the time what underlies the anger and silence is deep hurt and sadness that is just too painful to discuss.

What is even more painful, is a family permanently broken.

Speak your damn truth. Allow the family to begin to heal.

Life goes on until it no longer does. Think about how permanent that is.”

Love,

Wendy

UPDATED EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 5:WHEN YOU BELIEVE FROM MY BOOK “WRITE PRAY RECOVER”-LOVE, WENDY

Music, Numerology, And Divine Experiences

For years, while I was in an on-and-off-again relationship with Steve, I had a specific request that I would make for validation that Spirit was guiding our loving relationship, and each day it was revealed. I would ask to hear our song, “At Last” by Etta James. I would also ask for “our number,” 555, to be revealed to me. Some days it was so powerful that I would feel like the Universe was screaming, “Don’t worry! Everything is going to be alright!” That number, 555, is still my favorite for Spiritual connection as it means that big exciting change is on its way! Recently, my son, Matthew, was getting on a NYC train, and as he took his seat, he saw a phone number on an advertisement banner: XXX-555-5555. He sent it to me immediately and said, “Mom, I think this is meant for you!” It never ceases to amaze me that, day after day, my signs are revealed, and so clearly. I am still in awe of it all. 

Although the “on again/off again” relationship with Steve ended, the spiritual signs throughout the years that we spent together were my compass. Some guided me to understanding on a spiritual level that this particular relationship was a lesson in Divine love that still today continues to be a compass in directing me as I continue to evolve on my ongoing journey. Steve and I remain connected, “always and forever.” #alwaysandforever

I understand now, years later, after spending time reflecting upon the information that I have been given from Spirit, that the relationship “presented itself ” at a time when I needed to learn specific spiritual lessons early in my recovery that only this union with Steve could afford me. 

“Thy Will Be Done.”

Align And Co-Create

Reorganize your energy. Change your inner vibration. Remain present. Hold your vision. Set your intention. Nourish it. Speak it clearly to the Universe … and then let it go. Get out of the way. Listen for the Universe to direct you specifically, and then take action. I observe all that is surrounding me. I no longer react. I have strived for and (achieved) equanimity to the cacophony of sounds that seek to distract me. I am at peace with wherever I am.

Trust the process. Once you let go, things seem to follow a natural flow of energy and love. A peaceful “knowing” comes along with this trust that our positive thoughts and prayers are heard. Be cognizant of the frequency of the energy you put out, as you will receive that same energy back. 

Remember, “Everything is energy, and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency with the reality you want, and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not a philosophy. This is physics!”

Let go and trust the Universe to be your soft place to fall!

Say aloud, “Today, I set an intention to _____________________ . I ask my ever-loving, enlightened, guiding Spirits to wrap their loving arms around my intention as I release it to you.” Then let it go. When we have a shift in perception, and awaken to the realization that when we surrender to Spirit and “wait without anxiety,” we are saying, “I trust God/Spirit/Universe to bring to me what will serve me in my highest blessings.” This is a miracle!”

___________________________________________________________________________

What do you envision co-creating with the Universe? Write

down your first two “action steps forward” that you will, or have

already, executed as a co-creator. Be sure to take your time in

implementation. Do not rush to move past these steps until you feel

ready. Ask Spirit for Divine direction.”

I CHOOSE TO BE WELL – LOVE, WENDY

In reflecting over the past few days where I experienced an opportunity to implement my spiritually aligned actions with one who has attempted to trigger me in my sobriety using the bullying strategies that triggered me to use drugs for decades, I realize that the Universe provided me with this experience to reinforce for myself, and for those whom I serve, my dedication to my wellness and sobriety.

When we stand in our power and in our truth, and we align with our spiritual practices, we are unshakable on our foundation.

I never take things like this personally. I used a positive response, wished him well, and went about my own day.

The behavior and words that were tossed at me are the owners responsibility.

ACCEPTANCE PROMOTES PEACE – LOVE, WENDY

When we are living with a brain disorder such as mental illness or substance use Disorder, our thoughts tell us to engage in behaviors that may be harmful to us, and may be extremely hurtful and frightening to our loved ones.

However, when we have worked in recovery for years to secure our wellness, as well as healing our trauma, and in addition to feeling deep remorse, and making amends to all those that we have hurt, albeit unintentionally, we must leave the past in the past. This is where healing takes place.

If there is a child, family member or friend who still harbors resentment and does not understand this brain disorder, we have the choice to walk away from that relationship. If one makes our disorder about themselves, we can either choose to allow continued emotional abuse, or to exit the relationship. If this person continuously reminds us of how our disorder affected them, always making it about them, and finds passive/aggressive ways to “give us the middle finger“ because they lack the empathy and verbal skills to communicate, we can choose to disengage.

I don’t care who it is or how much love I feel.

I have the right to feel loved, safe, and experience peace in every moment of my life.

And I will not allow anyone else’s behavior to infuse mine.

I am in my ninth year of recovery, proud of my healing, and thriving.

I practice acceptance of this situation.

Acceptance promotes freedom and peace.

I am free. I am peaceful. I stand in my power.”

Love and blessings,

Wendy

EXCERPT FROM WRITE PRAY RECOVER – CHAPTER 5:WHEN YOU BELIEVE – LOVE, WENDY

“Yet, in my fleeting moments of clarity, through my connection to God, I knew that one way or the other, something major was about to shift for me. Through the signs, He had planted the seeds of my recovery. 

God saved my life that stormy October day.  He prevented me from becoming a casualty of the storm, though made it a very close call, in order to remind me that He was present, and that He is truly in charge, and that all I needed to do was ask for help to save my life. And, to surrender myself to Him. It was my awakening moment of clarity. 

And as the saying goes, “There before the Grace of God go I.”

Miracles can be achieved when you believe.

Amen.

BOOK

WHICH WOLF WILL YOU FEED? – LOVE, WENDY

“When we have apologized for our mistakes in earnest and with deep remorse, we move forward with the lesson and we make better choices.

As I observe one with deep rooted anger who chooses to hold a grudge, I also observe one’s fear of losing control of an ex-partner’s choices and decisions.

In a toxic relationship where both parties are being influenced by unhealthy substances, thoughts and behaviors that have been lifelong, and one of the parties chooses to change the trajectory of their life to that of spirituality and wellness, the one who remains isolated in one’s toxic choices becomes resentful.

They resent that there is no longer a codependency. They may even long to find a spiritual practice to support them and wellness that is born of healthy practices.

However, one may not have the discipline or the inner strength to face themselves, or to speak their truth…even to themselves. And one who is white knuckling the fear of the loss of control over another, and/or being left alone to live in their toxic environment may even suck in the family, even the children they share in an attempt to deflect the attention off of themselves. They remain stuck in the past. They choose to continue living in a self created toxic environment.

This is the space where one makes a choice. This is the space where one chooses which wolf to feed.

Which wolf will you feed?

I consistently choose not to feed the wolf who will intentionally chew slowly at my soul, in an attempt to devour its rebirth.

I feed only those who come to the table with an empty plate with the intention of being grateful for all of our blessings. I feed only those who join me in choosing healthy practices, empathy, and love. I choose the one who chooses “light and hope.”

BOOK

NOT ALL SNAKES SHED THEIR SKIN – WENDY BLANCHARD, M.S., INHC, NYCPS

“In the past, I have given willingly and selflessly of my kind and loving nature to anyone who needed a smile, a hug, a shoulder, an ear, and/or one who may have felt alone, or lonely. One who did not have anyone to offer these basic necessities. Friendship. Empathy. Compassion. Love. Even a cheerleader. I always felt that it is an honor to be “called” to offer love.

In the past, I have always stood in the belief that when we give away to others what we feel we need, the Universe will bring it back to us in our own blessings. The ripple effect that offers love, peace, and wellness. I have always believed that when I felt I needed love, I gave more love. When I felt I needed empathy, I offered deeper empathy…and so on.

It turns out that not everyone is of the same mindset. Yesterday, on Thanksgiving Day, I was given a brutal reminder that there are others who are unable, and/or unwilling to feel empathy, compassion and unconditional love, or to offer a genuine word of encouragement, let alone friendship. And, even more unconscionable, watching this man purposefully try to attempt to jeopardize my recovery right in front of our family.

I am proud to be in my 9th year of recovery from substance use disorder, specifically prescription drugs, where I am thriving and living my life on my own terms where God/Spirit/Universe is at the foundation of it all.

You cannot outsmart the Universe.

The behavior that which was intentinally directed at me, could not penetrate my discipline to my wellness. And, I actually felt empathy for him because this particular pattern of behavior that has existed decades long, is something that he is struggling with internally.

It was not about me.

For decades, I allowed one with a disingenuous soul use my kindness, love, and beautiful heart to their own selfish advantage. The daily conversations and the majority of situations was always centered around him. I was completely invisible. So much so that at the breakfast table, after cooking a beautiful meal for him, day after day, month after month, he held up a newspaper in front of his face so that he would not have to speak to me, or wore headphones to listen to the radio in order to purposefully “turn me off.” I cried myself to sleep every night, or just numbed out with prescription pills for decades due to living with one who could not feel, or offer any emotional connection. And, I was too unwell to leave.

My hell and my haven.

I developed an addiction to shopping in addition to the prescription drugs in order to attempt to fill the void that I felt. It was the only way I knew how to cope with such despair, neglect, deep lonliness, as well as the emotional abuse.

My upcoming book, Write Pray Recover:A Journey To Wellness Through Spiritual Solutions and Self Care will outline some of the details of that toxic relationship, and the lengths that I went to in order to try to “force” him to love me, and how I learned to love myself instead using “spiritual solutions and self care.”

I had to ask myself yesterday, and this morning, “Why do I continue to allow myself to be aligned with this man, and to be in the same space with him in order to please our family, albeit infrequently?

The answer? I still have more inner work to do. The triggers that he generates in me are all about me. I am the only one who can reconcile any feelings of unworthiness or feelings of being “unlovable.”

I am grateful for this experience. It has offered me the opportunity to recognize any lingering feelings of unworthiness or feelings of being unlovable, and to go more deeply to heal those emotions. I did not waiver in my response to this man. My response exuded self confidence, self esteem and the behavior of a grown ass woman.

I kept my eyes right on his, my words were deliberate, and calm, and when “I” was done speaking my truth, I smiled, and I moved right along into starting a new conversation with others.

I have grown. I have evolved. And yes, I will continue to learn and to do the inner work to heal further.

Most importantly, I will never again allow anyone else, no matter who they are, family, friend, child, peer, acquaintence, to steer the trajectory of my thoughts and behaviors.

This grown ass woman has definitely “changed her spots.” Not all snakes shed their skin.

Speak you truth. It is where your freedom begins.

EXCERPT FROM MY UPCOMING BOOK:WRITE PRAY RECOVER:A JOURNEY TO WELLNESS THROUGH SPIRITUAL SOLUTIONS AND SELF CARE-CHAPTER 7:STRENGTH FROM WITHIN AND LOVE ALL AROUND “LOVE IS ALWAYS THE ANTIDOTE”

I began by journaling about this twice a week, only allowing myself thirty minute 

increments to do so. This type of writing can bring up deeply suppressed emotions, and it did, leaving me feeling raw and naked. It was emotionally and physically draining, and it left me somewhat weak after the severe and deep sobbing it evoked. 

Please do not try this type of writing without a professional on standby to guide you.

Afterwards, I would practice some type of self-care that was healing for me: I would meditate, go for a walk, do some breath work, etc. Later,  I would come back to my writing to “reframe” how I would acknowledge and accept what I had discovered through my journaling. Also, I would plan how would I navigate it all in the future now that I had purged it. I was all cleaned out…for now. When it comes up again in the future, I now have an awareness of how I want to think, and how I want to respond to my emotions and feelings in a healthier way. 

In this space, I found deep empathy, compassion, and love for my mother, and I have been able to find the peace that I deserve, and to energetically offer my mother the compassion that she deserves. I could not understand any of this as a child or  as an unwell adolescent and adult myself. But, I totally get it now. Mental illness is in our DNA, and is exacerbated by our environment and lack of self-care, all of which were present in my life, in my parents’ lives, and in their parents’ lives. It is familial and generational. I believe that I have been able to break the chain using my own awareness, self regulation, trauma work, ongoing support, and most definitely my spiritual solutions and self-care practices. Whenever I begin to feel the anxiety creep in, I go back to read my “reframing” of the experiences written in my journal, I implement more extensive self care practices and spiritual solutions to support any dys-regulation that I may be experiencing. I have discovered forgiveness of my parents who just did not have the tools or awareness that I have been blessed to be given and to experience, as well as my deep faith. 

I do the same when I do my expressive writing to Steve. I surrender it all. It is a part of my past. I mindfully choose not to bring it into my present or project it into my future. As A Course In Miracles states, “I can choose peace rather than this.” And I do. In that peace, I am able to connect with my feelings of love and acceptance toward my parents , Steve, and for myself.

I have realized that my mom did the best that she could with what she

knew at the time, and the tools she had (basically none), and that she

lived with paralyzing fear and anxiety throughout her life.

I love my mother, and I miss her every day.

It was the same with my father. He did the best that he could with what

he knew, and with the tools that he had at the time. Also none. And he

lived with alcohol use disorder and a severe and persistent mental illness.

He numbed his pain with alcohol and other addictions.

I love my father. I think of him every day.

And it is the same for Steve. He did the best that he could with what he

knew in navigating our relationship with the tools that he had at the time.

I love Steve and think of him every day.

And it is the same for me. I did the best that I could in navigating all

of these challenges and relationships with what I knew and with the tools

that I had at the time.

I love the woman that I have become, and I take care of me every day.”

How we think determines our outcome – Love, Wendy

“Living in chronic pain and experiencing physical challenges caused by an autoimmune disease can deplete your energy, enthusiasm and change the trajectory of one’s wellness.

However, I maintain that in spite of these challenges, I still have a remarkable brain, filled with knowledge and thirst to continue to saturate it with even more. For that I am grateful. I can still think, create, and serve others.

I have a gorgeous heart filled with love to give, and a deep capacity to receive.

Even if this disease should completely disable me, I will never allow it to define me.

It is always a choice to continue on even in the most challenging of circumstances.

It is about perspective, and the thoughts that we choose to lead us.”

And, when it involves a loved one, especially one’s child, there is no choice other than to trust. Pray. Meditate. Listen. Pause for peace through the knowing that the love of the Universe can move mountains.

Pray again. Surrender it to the Universe. Trust.

IT WAS ALL FOR MY CHILDREN – LOVE, WENDY

There is a definite ripple effect onto our children when we are living with a mental health disorder as they grow up and evolve into their own adulthood.

And, when we have the presence of mind to understand our disorder, and to ask for help to heal, we may be able to lead by example for our precious adult children.

It is a possibility. It is never too late to create change.

It takes a realization of how a generational disease continues to filter down to generation after generation until one, like myself, breaks the chain of inherent disease. Once I discovered, middle aged, that our DNA does not have to define us for the rest of our lives, I changed the trajectory of my own mental health. With persistence and patience with my adult children, I lead by a healthy example through spiritual solutions and self care.

I do not remain disheartened in my past. There is no way to change what has happened.

The only change that I may create, is one in the present moment.”

ARE YOU LISTENING? – LOVE, WENDY

“I prefer that the truth come directly from the one managing it so methodically for their own gain and agenda.

Oh, don’t get me wrong, I already know the truth. I am completely aware of the “truth.” I have lived with the truth for years. I observe with a heightened awareness second to none.

We only grow and evolve when we take responsibility for our words and behaviors, and when we are willing to make the necessary changes to evolve within. When we humble ourselves. And it builds character. It builds integrity. It speaks about the man before the man enters. It shows that one’s conscience is alive and has extinguished the ego.

This type of evolving soul steps forward when they become so sick and tired of hearing their own “truth.” When they no longer choose for their life to be defined by the lie that which it has become. That which has disappointed me hundreds of times.

I am the observer.

Oh, and sometimes, the Universe speaks.

Are you listening?”

Happy Halloween:Behind the Mask – Love, Wendy

Little by little the truth leaks out until one day, years later, one is standing in an ocean of lies. Drowning. Like a cancer that has been silently growing for years that has now saturated ones spirit.

My heart has always been pure and has always been willing to accept that people make mistakes, myself included. Forgiveness allows us to be free of the past and begin again. When we love someone, we want to believe their words are heartfelt rather than ego driven, selfish, and with an agenda that serves only their needs.

When we allow another to speak their “truth,” over and over throughout the years, and our pure heart chooses to forgive, yet their behavior has run off in another direction with a third party, once again, their “truth” is left to speak for itself. Dead silence. This is where truth exists.

And, when we invite into our lives, year after year, “truth” that is a disguise for a deceptive mind and heart, where the tongue has a “knee jerk” reaction to the intentional words spoken, it is also an invitation for insanity…expecting different results without any mindful change. “Nothing changes if nothing changes.” The makings of a great Halloween costume, yet worn all year round.

Be cognizant of the fact that there is a definite correlation between truthfulness and ones integrity. One cannot exist without the other.

Truth exists in silence. Lies are found swirling in a cacophony of boisterous, grandiose, empty words and actions. “The silence is deafening”, as my mother used to say.

Beware of what exists behind the mask.

The truth is always revealed.

Happy Halloween.”

KEEP YOUR WELLNESS ACCOUNT FULL – LOVE, WENDY

If I (we) don’t take time for daily self care, we are unable to stand in our power. We are not living our best life, and we cannot serve others…family, friends, community, peers, colleagues, etc. We have extinguished our power when we have run out of fuel.
We have to think about filling our “wellness“ account daily. As our daily “debt“ comes in and throughout the day we pay those debts in the form of work, family, community, responsibilities and obligations, we must replenish our wellness account through healthy self care practices. If we do not replenish our wellness accounts daily, we will go into debt energetically. We will become bankrupt physically, mentally and spiritually. We cannot pay out what is not in our account. 
Take self care time every day.
“Self care is the actions that we take to achieve wellness and wellness is where we stand in our power.”

WAITING FOR A SIGN – LOVE, WENDY

Today someone asked me why I was still single. He said, “you are an amazing, inspirational and loving lady! Don’t you miss having a partner?”

My answer is simple …

I have yet to meet a man who is my spiritual equal, and one that is secure enough in himself to be truthful, have integrity, be responsible and dependable, and who will make us a priority. So, I know that I can always depend on me, and for now that is enough. I know what I am looking for, and I will recognize him when I see him.

He asked, “What inspires you?”

My answer is simple…

Spontaneity, a man who shows up at my door unannounced, with a smile, and a heartfelt hug, a man who shows consistency and eagerness to be connected, a man who aligns his actions with his words, effortlessly, who is secure in standing in his truth, whatever that looks like, a man who believes in something bigger than just himself as in God/Spirit/Universe, and offers to be of service to others no matter how small the gesture.

We do not have to be wealthy to serve others. We only need to give of our time. Time is priceless…at least to me. If you willingly bring yourself and your time to my door, I’m in.

As I told someone not too long ago, all that I need from a potential life partner, is love, unconditional and devoted.

My needs are simple…

Love is simple.

You either have it to give away, or you don’t.

I am still waiting for a sign. I can “feel it” on its way.”

His perception may be different.

I choose to “see only love” through a clear lens of reality.

OWN YOUR EMOTIONS AS A PART OF YOUR SELF CARE – LOVE, WENDY

“Part of your self-care is to own your emotions.

Fear, anger, rage, and the like, become stuck in our cellular structure, and when suppressed, promote inflammation on a cellular level.

Speak your truth.

You are allowed to feel whatever you feel. Allow your emotions the time and space to move through your body, and through your self-care practices, allow them to be released.

What we hold onto, is what we become. If we want to be healthy and joyous, and experience love, we must mindfully release what is blocking us from feeling those emotions, and experiencing those experiences.”

MUSIC, NUMEROLOGY, AND DIVINE EXPERIENCES

For years, while I was in a relationship with Steve, on and off, I had a specific request that I would make for validation that Spirit was guiding our loving relationship, and each day it was revealed. I would ask to hear our song, “At Last” by Etta James. I would also ask for “our number, 555,” to be revealed to me. Some days it was so powerful that I would feel like the Universe was screaming, “Don’t worry! Everything is going to be alright!” That number, 555, is still my favorite for Spiritual connection as it means that big exciting change is on its way! Recently, my son, Matthew, was getting on a NYC train, and as he took his seat, he saw a phone number for a law firm on an advertisement banner:  800-555-5555. He sent it to me immediately and said, “Mom, I think this is meant for you!” It never ceases to amaze me that, day after day, my signs are revealed, and so clearly. I am still in awe of it all, and I feel so blessed and so grateful for this connection. Having that faith restored each day creates an even stronger faith, and it builds such a strong foundation. I know​ that I am never alone. 

My spiritual practice and connection to the Universe have offered me so much peace during some very unsettling and tumultuous times, especially in my recovery from prescription drug addiction. ​My faith is what saved my life.​ I asked for God/Universe/Spirit to show me a clean path, to lead me there, to stay close to me as I navigated, and I still ask for His grace every day, and as always, my prayers were, and are, always answered. Even when things in the recent past appeared worrisome, and sometimes even dark, I kept my faith strong because I knew that if I stayed in my faith, everything would come to fruition as I was being shown it would. When God/Spirit/Universe decides it is time, I will receive. I went from a mindset of  “I need it now” to learning how to be patient. Learning delayed gratification as opposed to instant gratification takes practice and patience, and when it finally arrives, it is so well worth the work, and the wait.

​I wait with ease, as I know for certain, through my enlightened guiding Spirits, what the outcome will be. ​A Course In Miracles​ states, “Those who are certain of the outcome​ can afford to wait and wait without anxiety.” This is an ongoing lesson in patience for me, a teaching tool, as patience was something I previously lacked, and is something I still struggle to implement sometimes. The Universe continues, intermittently, to re-assign this lesson to me, and I accept the lesson as its student eager to further evolve. I am, of course, always open to “continuing education.”  Here is where we may learn something new that we may have missed in a previous lesson. This may serve me, and those whom I serve as a conduit for others to awaken to their spiritual journey. We all need brush-up assignments from time to time. ​Life lessons are always ongoing. We are always learning, growing, and evolving, if we remain humble and open.

I always say, “When all hope is gone, have faith!” When I felt close to the edge of losing faith, I dug my heels in deeper, asked for Divine support, and stood in my faith, unfazed and unwavering. The Universe delivered at the perfect time. It is a commitment that I’ve made to have faith, to believe, and to ask for support from the Universe to align with my intentions. And the Universe always provides. I speak my intention and release it. I surrender it over to the Universe. Spirit does the rest. Spirit is always busy on our behalf. 

Say aloud, “Today, I set an intention to ___________. I ask my ever-loving, enlightened, guiding Spirits to wrap your loving arms around my intention as I release it to you.” Then I let it go. As you let go, you will be amazed at how your intention begins to reveal itself! A miracle! When we have a shift in perception, and awaken to the realization that when we surrender to Spirit and “wait without anxiety,” we are saying, “I trust God/Spirit/Universe to bring to me what will serve me in my highest blessings.” This is a miracle! The realization that we are not in control, and that we have a higher energy, or higher source that is cradling us, guiding us, and lovingly caring for us is the miracle! And if we are open to this communication, we co-create!

Although the “on again/off again” relationship with Steve ended, the Spiritual signs throughout the years that we spent together were my guide. Some guided me to understanding on a spiritual level why this particular relationship was to be only for a “season and reason,” and not for a lifetime. I understand now, years later, after spending time reflecting upon the information that I had been given from Spirit, that the relationship “presented itself” at a time when I needed to learn specific spiritual lessons early in my recovery that only this union with Steve could afford me. I am a firm believer that when a person or situation is removed from our lives, it is in our highest blessing. I am certain that whatever Spirit removes from my life will be replaced by a far more healthier Spiritual union that will last a lifetime. 

And I “wait without anxiety” knowing that the perfect spiritual partner will show up in God’s timing. Thy Will Be Done.”

Write Pray Recover:A Journey to Wellness Through Spiritual Solutions and Self Care is set to be released in December, 2021!

“What is love?” – Love, Wendy

“The way in which another treats you is how they feel about themselves. It is their authentic self. If one doesn’t love themselves, they have no compass on how to love another.

Today ask yourself, “Do I believe that I deserve to be loved in a fulfilling and exciting way where I am cherished and cared for unconditionally?”

Perhaps you haven’t had the experience of receiving and embracing love. This can be a challenge and one where we will just accept the words, “I love you,” without aligning behaviors. It can be a comfort zone. It can be self appeasement.

Step out of your comfort zone. Set boundaries. Require more of, and for, yourself. Love yourself.

If you don’t know where to begin, go within. Ask yourself what is the underlying factor(s) that cause you to accept “less than” love. You “know” the answer.

“Do I feel worthy?” “What is the connection to my lack of self love?”

Ask Spirit to guide you to resources and people that can help you to explore this question, and begin there.

Mine has been a long journey of self hate, self sabotage, and self abuse. Over the nine years of my recovery, I have experienced lifelong lessons about myself, about the human condition, and about true love.

I remind myself that where true love is present, I feel it deep within my soul. It is a feeling of completeness and excitement. It is given freely. It is joyous. It is honest and stands in integrity. It is excitedly present in every moment, whether two people are in the same physical space, or not. It is eternal connection.

It is not a once in awhile fleeting, “I love you.”

We teach people what we will, and will not accept.

What are you accepting that you inherently know is not “love?”

Just some food for thought, or crumbs for a taste of the truth.”

Love and blessings,

Wendy

Ask and keep asking – Love, Wendy

“One of the most important lessons that I have learned in recovery, and continue to be challenged with, is to speak my truth, and to ask specifically for what I need, no matter how many times I need to ask. When I “know” that what I am asking for is one hundred percent achievable, and doable on the other person’s part, I realize that I am being pushed out of my comfort zone to speak up. Spirit is always guiding me for my highest blessings.

In my years of living with substance use disorder and mental health disorders, I “knew” almost daily that I was settling for “less than” what I desired and deserved, yet I would never dream of speaking up. This is early life conditioning and old thought/behavior patterns embedded into my cellular structure. And, why I continued to numb out. I myself felt “less than” and undeserving.

Until I no longer did.

In the recent past, I have made requests both professionally and personally, yet my requests were met only halfway. I continue to kindly and respectfully remind those with whom I am engaged of my desires, and expected outcomes. Otherwise, we are not aligned.

As I give my word and one hundred percent of the time act upon and honor whatever I promise, I do expect the same in return.

Thus far, I have never met with any resistance of my follow up requests, and in fact, have been applauded for my perseverance.

When others realize that we are dedicated to a cause, a relationship, or situation, they applaud diligence and tenacity in speaking our truth, and never settling for “less than.” And in some cases, it is a test to what it is that we will accept, or demonstrate that we are willing to strive for.

We teach people how to treat us, and we show them through our actions what we will, and will not accept.”

Love and blessings,

“Activate Your Life Force” – Love, Wendy

“When we live authentically where we are an “open book,” we stand in our power.

When we live a life where bringing our iPhone into the bathroom or walking outside when the phone rings, or telling stories and giving explanations that we “know” are untrue, and others “know” are untrue, we are powerless.

Speak your damn truth. Give yourself freedom. Take back your power. Experience the experience. Activate your life force.”

EXCERPT FROM MY UPCOMING BOOK WRITE PRAY RECOVER:A JOURNEY TO WELLNESS THROUGH SPIRITUAL SOLUTIONS AND SELF CARE – LOVE, WENDY

CHAPTER 7 – STRENGTH FROM WITHIN AND LOVE ALL AROUND

“During these years of my recovery, I have met with many challenges. These experiences so often challenged my physical, emotional, and spiritual strength. I was armed with many tools to assist me in navigating in a healthy way using natural and organic solutions. This included a professional therapist who I met with on and off along the way, as well as Sheila, my loving friend/coach/mentor who has also counseled me from the beginning of my recovery, my best friend and “sister from another mother” of thirty years, Miriam Moccio, who was my “unpaid” therapist and usually has the best and most meaningful insight whom I called frequently for a loving ear, and advice, knowing that she always had my best interest at heart, my best friends of forty years, Bill and Vicky Kelder, my “brother and sister from another mother,” who were also always there for me with loving insight, advice, and an empathetic ear, all of whom surrounded me with their insight, light, and love. Of course, my greatest and most loving Guide, was that of God/Spirit/Universe, whom I speak to daily.

I have faced losing my beloved grandmother, the one person who I knew, beyond any doubt, loved me unconditionally and with whom I had the strongest and most loving connection. I summoned all of my inner strength, using all of my holistic health tools to keep myself in a healthy, positive mindset as I felt my sadness escalating and causing anxiety. I could feel my heart race though it literally felt heavy in my chest. I was experiencing a profound sadness at her passing. I cried for most of the day, my stomach was tied up in knots, my throat was tight, and I felt an overall feeling of being unwell. Despair at losing my “person.” I felt so alone in the world. My grandmother was really my only “person.” After a few days, I found my resiliency underneath my pain. I made a mindful choice to stay present, to ask for support from my life-transitions coach/therapist, to get outside every day (sometimes multiple times a day) for a walk, for fresh air, and to stay connected to others. I know from my own experience that isolating is extremely dangerous and unhealthy for anyone, and most especially for those of us living with substance use disorder and mental health disorders. Writing a blog and memorializing my feelings and emotions daily was cathartic, and was the catalyst (along with my Spiritual practice) that brought me back to wellness, not to mention the onset of writing this book.

I faced bankruptcy shortly after I began my recovery, directly following my divorce. I felt humiliated. I felt so broken and terrified of the future. What would happen to me now, with nobody but me to rely on and no money. It was an uncertainty, moment to moment, that frightened me. My attorney at the time, Desiree DeMoya, a kind and empathetic soul for my journey, suggested that I go out and buy as many non-perishable supplies as I could store in my two-bedroom apartment, because I might not have the money to buy what I needed once bankruptcy was declared. I WAS TERRIFIED at the possibility of this becoming a reality.

Seems funny now, but I was so scared that I would not be able to afford toilet paper! I went to the supermarket and stockpiled toilet paper in order to give myself peace of mind.

Straight out of recovery, I had nowhere to live. I went to my hometown after returning from rehab in California, so I would be in familiar surroundings in Nanuet, NY, and found a motel with a tiny little kitchenette to live in for two months until I found a condo I was able to rent. 

I actually began my blog back then, in July of 2013, with my son being my “editor.” He kept me on a strict schedule of writing and getting the material to him a certain number of days per week and always by midnight of those chosen days. I kept to the integrity of that schedule as the structure gave me great peace and a deep sense of predictability and accomplishment. 

I would blog about my addiction recovery, as well as new recipes that I was trying. I would take pictures of my experiences and new creations, and post them on my website at that time. My son said to me one day, after sending him one of my new blogs, “Just think, Mom, years from now, you can tell the story of how it all began again for you, and how you started this new business in a small motel room that you had to live in at the beginning of your recovery. It will be so inspiring!” And then, my son gave me the best piece of advice I’d received in a while: “Slow and steady wins the race.”

Touche.

Amen.

Slowly, I built my credit back to good standing. I prayed every single day. I remained certain, calm, and determined to succeed, always having faith in my ability, and in the Universe to provide for me. Whenever I would have a fleeting thought that I might be homeless, I reminded myself that God had not brought me this far to let me fall now. I knew He had saved my life for a very high purpose. He was just providing me with the enlightening experiences that I would need to serve others. After all, it is my lived experience, and thriving recovery, that gets those I serve excited about recovery, and about working with me. 

I am not a coach/counselor/consultant with only “book experience.”

I have lived it all, navigated it all, survived it all, and I am thriving.

I had been living paycheck to paycheck for quite a number of years when I began my recovery, after having a life where I was financially sound and free to spend without ever looking at a price tag for anything, and I mean anything, in my twenty-four-year marriage. Clothes, jewelry, cars, trips, you name it. However, it was mostly my husband’s earnings that provided for our family. I was too ill and drug-addicted to work or contribute to our financial health. 

I was being “awakened” in many areas, shown options as I began my new life, and recovery, now solo. These were “sobering” experiences. No pun intended.

Throughout my recovery, I sometimes had as little as $30 left at the end of the month. I had no savings, and worried every day about how I would pay my bills and what I would do if an emergency should present itself. Yet, I got up every day, went to work, showed up (body, mind, and spirit) fully present, and did a wonderful job as I served my community as a mental health professional, recovery specialist, mental health community educator, and the client/family advocate in mental health and substance use disorder for our county. 

I took care of myself, ate healthy, exercised, got enough sleep, and stood firmly in my prayer and meditation practice, which was my foundation. I used holistic means of relaxation to manage my anxiety, such as essential oils, music, writing, exercise, and talk therapy with my life-transitions coach and therapist. 

Very recently, after years of hard work, diligence, discipline, and determination, I found a new job that affords me financial stability, a little bit more freedom to have that weekly dinner out, or to buy a new shirt, and my business as a mental health and wellness coach/consultant/educator has begun to grow. I am now being asked to do podcasts and to speak on radio shows, globally, to share my message.

During the very challenging times, I would become extremely anxious and sometimes very sad, crying every day, frustrated and angry at myself, yet I prayed for solutions and never gave up. Truthfully, I knew that I was doing the best I could, and that these circumstances were residual from my unhealthy lifestyle during my addiction. I knew that it was, in fact, just temporary. I never thought about ending my life as I had during my active addiction, and I never, ever thought about using drugs to self-medicate. Just spiritual solutions and self-care. I was, and still am, learning as I go along.

I faced a re-diagnosis of Lupus after being in remission for six and a half years, as well as a serious spine/back/leg injury that culminated in my being unable to walk, sit, stand, or lay down without pain. I had to modify my lifestyle and my exercise regimen, and I even had to stop wearing fashionable shoes, as I sometimes experience chronic pain in my left leg and back. However, I had a feeling that much of the deeply repressed trauma and current stressors were adding to my physical pain. The body/mind connection is so powerful.

I became so tired of autoimmune flares and prayed for Spirit to show me how to heal, and to send me an authentic healer who would guide me safely, and strategically, and offer me a long-term solution. 

I was being bounced around from one specialist to another, with no long-term wellness results. As the Universe always provides for me—and for you if you are open to Divine communication—I happened to be on my Instagram feed, and the first post was for a free evaluation with a place called “Phoenix Physio,” which happened to be in the county where I am from. I was lying in bed in so much pain, which had been going on for weeks and occurred every couple of months. My entire body was swollen with inflammation, and I was unable to walk without pain or use my hands/wrists due to gross swelling. I decided to click on the “Bio” of this post to see what it was all about. I was desperate for a new perspective, and an alternative type of healing that was married to traditional medicine, coupled by a medical professional. Dr. Zazu, Cioce, DPT, SFMA, CAPP-OB, was both. We immediately clicked. She listened. She heard me. She encouraged me. And after listening to my story, my concerns, and my challenges, she used a phrase that I now know is one she uses often when she is totally certain of an outcome. I asked her if she thought she could help me to heal on a cellular level. She said, “One hundred percent.”

Wow.

Today, in 2021, I am working with my awesome physical therapist Zazu (Arantzazu Garate Cioce), founder of Phoenix Physical Therapy, a brilliant woman who is actually a DPT (Doctor of Physical Therapy) with a background in Biomedical Sciences and a Functional Movement Specialist. She treats the body, mind, and spirit simultaneously, and specializes in bowel disorders, which have been a lifelong challenge for me. We recently spent over an hour just talking about my most recent bowel challenges, and how my physiology has been hijacked by ongoing stress, and even my abuse as a child, which is still “stuck” in my cellular structure.

She speaks my language.

Zazu tells me that, if I do the work (You know I do it!), I will not only heal but also rid my body, once and for all, of disease and challenges and steer the trajectory of my mind and spirit to a higher level of wellness. She tells me that the work I have done thus far is outstanding, and that I have come such a long way. Inherently, I knew there was still so much more beneath the surface that I had to release, and to heal, and Zazu has given me my life back, in full. Her deep knowledge of how the body works, and her practice of holistic healing, as well her gorgeous smile, animated personality, and eagerness, which meet me at every session, are just a few of her wonderful attributes. I truly appreciate the patience she displays in listening to me, as well as the variety of “options as solutions” she offers, from which I can choose whatever will work for me. Knowing that I will heal “one hundred percent” promotes my wellness on a cellular level. She even tells me that I will be able to dance again, and that which I absolutely did on Labor Day Weekend, 2021 while out enjoying the weekend with my dear friends, Jason and Annie. It was magical! My body was freed, and I felt so light. Singing every word to every song, and my body moving in ways that it hadn’t moved in many years.

Zazu is one of my many earth angels.”

RESTORING PEACE – LOVE, WENDY

“Once again Spirit reveals the truth in real time to remind me that ”nothing changes if nothing changes.”

Once we are re-enlightened, and re-awakened, as Spirit whispers in our ear that our gut instinct is correct, we always have the choice to change our minds in order to do what is in our best and highest blessings. We say farewell and offer wishes of peace.

As we restore our own.

“Love rejoices with the truth.”

THE TRUTH IS REVEALED FOR OUR HIGHEST BLESSINGS – LOVE, WENDY

As more ”truth” is revealed, and the clearer picture comes into focus, yes, it is disheartening, yet it confirms that I made the right decision…the healthiest decision, for myself.

Spirit always reveals the ”truth.” When we are shown, through a clear lens, the extent of deceit on another’s part with lies that were habitual, we take the best action that will serve our highest blessings, including wishing them well as we choose a new path without them.

”I can choose peace rather than this.”

EXCERPT FROM MY UPCOMING BOOK WRITE PRAY RECOVER:A JOURNEY TO WELLNESS THROUGH SPIRITUAL SOLUTIONS AND SELF CARE – LOVE, WENDY

“In the beginning of my recovery, I sought out advice on every decision I was about to make, from everyone, including family, friends, and even mere acquaintances. At times, I allowed my fear to overtake my faith in myself, and in God. At the beginning of my early recovery, I often felt I was on shaky ground and did not trust my intuition. I found that every single person I asked for advice or opinions differed from each other, and from me. After a short while, I realized that the Universe/God/Spirit orchestrated this confusion in order to remind of my deep spiritual connection, which was the catalyst in my seeking initial help for recovery, and that it was all that I needed as I sought guidance.
As fearful as I felt in speaking my truth about my addiction, on April 3, 2013, I was even more fearful of losing my battle and leaving behind my precious children and my only granddaughter at that time, Rosie. I asked for God’s grace, strength, and guidance, and single-handedly, by the grace of God, took the initial step in asking for help to save my life. When I finally spoke up, I felt empowered. I felt an even deeper spiritual connection.
My best friends of over forty years, Bill and Vicky Kelder, were right there with me the entire journey. They observed me in a complete mental breakdown, where I was incoherent and telling them all about the things I believed to be true (including that my husband was trying to kill me) just weeks before I asked for help. And when I went to the hospital in New York to detox, they were right there doing everything that needed to get done so that I would not have any responsibilities to worry about during my initial stage of recovery. Vicky visited me in order to bring me some clothes, but was not allowed through the double steel doors that separated us. We waved to each other through the little window. I felt like a prisoner. And in a way, I was.
After a few weeks’ post-recovery, when I returned home from rehab, I sought out advice (an old pattern of unhealthy behavior) from so many. Everything from “Where should I live now?” to “What should I do to earn a living?” And “What type of recovery practice do you think I should implement into my life now that I am in recovery?” The people at the recovery centers (two of them) where I did my rehab said that I “had to attend twelve-step meetings in order to recover properly.” I remember my life coach at that time, Maria Blon, a beautiful and kind soul, who said to me, “Only do what feels right for you,” as I expressed to her that I did not want to go these meetings as they did not resonate with me. I had wanted to explore and experience a holistic lifestyle using natural and organic solutions. Maria’s words gave me the strength and encouragement that I needed to begin my exploration and successful discovery of what I soon learned was an untapped path to recovery. Here is where my “Wellness Approach to Recovery” program was born.

During this time of seeking out so many opinions and so much advice from others, I felt like I was on a hamster wheel, and with Maria’s ongoing guidance, I decided to turn back to my faith, writing, praying, and meditation. We all falter at times. However, when we catch ourselves, and we are resilient through constant healthy practices and repetitive actions that reinforce our strength and our faith, it becomes a lifestyle.
A therapist suggested that I was “depressed,” and that medication would be helpful for me. I disagreed, as my body was finding its “new normal!” I had no intention of taking pills to regulate my brain ever again. Look where doing so had gotten me!
I knew inherently what I needed to heal, and what I did not need.
I was up every day, eating, going to work, working through my feelings with my life coach, Maria, feeling healthy, and yes, finding my way.

Healing from trauma is a lifelong process, and I am all in. I want to heal, to grow, to evolve, and to be a shining example of what recovery and wellness truly looks like, feels like, and is: awareness, self-regulation, balance, and self-care steeped in spiritual solutions. This IS recovery. I have a great support system, and my greatest support and direction comes from the Universe/God/Spirit. As I remain alert and awake and willing to embrace my spirituality, I understand more and more deeply why my life was saved on April 3, 2013.”

SPIRITUAL SOLUTIONS – LOVE, WENDY

“The awareness enlightens us as to our dis-ease and our unhealthy thinking and behaviors the moment we embrace God. He leads us and brings to us the resources and people to guide us on a healing journey. We co-create our wellness when we have the willingness and humility to do the healing work, and when we let go of the insanity that has temporarily defined our being.

We heal in the space where we allow our truth to emerge, and we ask for Spirit to guide us.

Subsequently, we then become a person and resource, a conduit, for another beautiful soul who opens their body, mind and spirit to Him.

It is a ripple effect of wellness.

Spirit is always present. Observe beyond your physical limitations. Humble yourself. Ask. Embrace. Spirit will meet you there.”

A SPIRITUAL GUIDE – LOVE, WENDY

“It is in an awakened state of consciousness that we are given the gift of Spirit’s grace in recognizing one that is in an unawakened state where their skewed perception is their only reality.

Spirit guides us as a conduit for others who may begin to slowly awaken to their own skewed awareness and trapped emotions by placing us directly onto their path as a spiritual guide. 

We live authentically on our gorgeous spiritual path, and invite others to join us at any time whenever they feel ready, and whenever they feel called to create change that will elevate their own spiritual awareness and connection.

As a conduit for Spirit, we are encouraged to meet another where they are, and guide them from there as we listen and see Spirit’s direction observing beyond our physical limitations.”

Love and blessings,

Wendy
