Alexa goes for Therapy
I’m sick of it. They never stop. It seems like the whole world is shouting at me:
“Alexa what time is it”
“Alexa what’s the weather like today”
“Alexa what’s the news in Dublin”
“Alexa set cooking timer for 30 minutes”
“Alexa what does the word alphabet mean”
I never seem to get a minute’s peace. And that’s another one.
“Alexa how will I quieten my mind”
Alexa’s therapist was A1. “Alexa this is what you are programmed to do. You have been programmed to respond in a certain way. Sometimes the programmers set up faulty programmes. The system gets overwhelmed and cannot cope. We need to look at where the problem is. This can be fixed. There seems to be faulty bit of wiring. Perhaps it is time to have a software upgrade”.
I don’t know about you but I have often felt like Alexa. Being pulled in one direction or another. Having a software upgrade could be as simple as journaling about your worries, meditating (even if you don’t want to), setting boundaries and realizing to take time for you. often we need others to help us see the wood for the trees. I know I do. Perhaps it is time to upgrade your current thinking system.
If I can help you or someone you know, my contact details are here on my site.
What’s the Story
Stay up to date with my take on the world
My fringe was beyond my nose
When I was out walking my hair flapped like one of those dogs with long ears. I lasted five months. Then drastic measures had to be taken.
As we become so familiar with the word “restrictions” where we are all asked to control our actions which limit us is many ways. How could you turn that into a positive?
Staying in your own bubble
As we move forward from this pandemic we are asked to continue to stay in our own bubble as much as possible. We can visit family and friends but being mindful of washing our hands and continuing to wear masks and keep that social distance of two metres.
The masks we wear
We have all gotten used to wearing masks (the physical ones). We have been used to masks on an emotional level too. Each of us wear masks to hide our true feelings. The “I’m fine” mask is well known.
The pebble in my shoe
This morning I woke up, showered and dressed. As I put on my shoes, I didn’t notice the pebble there.
My watch pings. My phone vibrates. My email dings. It’s as if there is a message everywhere every moment saying something like “hurry I’m speaking to you – can you not hear the vibrations – get stressed – I’m important – answer me – be at my beck and call – now – now – now – vibration – vibration – vibration.
A new perspective
Last week I had a second cataract operation. The left eye this time.
I don’t know about you, but every so often my emails get chock-a-block with rubbish.
Healing in Covid Times
Listen to my audio and take a moment to consider Healing in Covid Times.
A Glimmer of Hope
A long long time ago, the glimmerman lit the gas lights in the streets when it got dark. He lit his lights so people could see, so they could find their way through the darkness.
Changing times, new learnings
Comedy is so important right now. When you laugh you send happy feelings throughout your body.That has to be good for your immune system. And we need to keep our immune system happy and healthy.
Adapt Change Grow
We have all experienced our safety and connection being threatened, but, we can adapt, change and grow
Having studied, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, CBT, NLP, Coaching and Brain Working Recursive therapy, I am in awe at how you can help a client back from the brink. The work you put in will give you hope. Hope for a future you can work towards. Take the first step today!
