If you believe that everyone who is conceived in this world has a purpose and that we are here to achieve that purpose then we all should be striving to accomplish that goal. To not only find our purpose but to achieve it. Not all of us believe this fact, not all of us know what our purpose is because we have forgotten it. We knew it when we were children, but, we allowed the world to get in the way of it. We began doing something that we might or might not like doing but is not necessarily making us happy. It is not the purpose we were sent here to do. It is our diverted purpose, the purpose that we have settled for because we forgot the real one. Or were told we had no talent for or were not smart enough to do or were not seen as able to accomplish the goal because someone else did not think we could do it. Do not listen to them, they have their own agenda and it is not in your best interest. It is in their best interest that you do not succeed. If you have a dream that you have always wanted to accomplish, do it. You would not have the dream if you could not accomplish it. It would not have been placed on your heart if you were not meant to do it. Begin, and everything else will fall into place. Do not listen to the people who would stop you. Do what is on your heart. It would not be on your heart if you were not meant to do it, something else would have been placed on your heart to accomplish. Relax and move forward one step at a time. It will begin to flow and the momentum will take over and thing will begin to happen. Here is my relaxation video to help you do relax and the guided imagery to get rid of those people who would tell you that you can’t along with the feelings that happen when they are negative.
I became a therapist in an attempt to understand my own childhood and what happened there and how it made me who I am, exhibiting the behaviors that were not always positive, very often self-destructive. I used Art Therapy to help me understand things in my past that were stopping me from making better decisions in my present day. I used Behavioral Science to help me understand underlying causal factors, roots to the present day behaviors that I was seeing in myself. Both help me to change those behaviors/thoughts that were causing me to make self-destructive decisions that were causing pain in life. I have been a therapist since 1985 and have an undergraduate degree Art and behavioral science (double major) from the University of Maine. My graduate work was done at Marywood university and I have a degree in Art Therapy. I have certificates in Forensic Interviewing and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior therapy. I have 22 out of 30 credits toward a degree in Trauma Therapy from Drexel University. I started out as a Community Support Worker, Program Manager/Clinical Supervisor, Family therapist and Outpatient therapist. View all posts by dtoomey2015
