A Clean Mind

Blogging about a less stressful way to live…

One Class Beats Six Years of Counseling??

I recently had the privilege of teaching a series of one-hour weekly classes to a group of women about this stuff that we talk about here at A Clean Mind. The first class went very well, as they usually do. Because this is just really awesome stuff to talk about! And everyone can relate to it pretty [more…]

Book: The Surrender Experiment

I’m writing today to heartily recommend a book called The Surrender Experiment by Michael Singer. He also wrote The Untethered Soul, which many of you are already familiar with. I’m sure I’ll be writing about that here in the future. Both are amazing, and they fit together like puzzle pieces. Today we’ll start with The Surrender [more…]

The Moving Sidewalk and the Hamster Wheel

Hi folks, and a hearty welcome to those that have recently discovered this blog since I finally caved and joined Facebook. We recently bitch-slapped anxiety and death, so now let’s shift gears a bit. And I guess I should learn a better way to phrase that… But seriously, if that phrase triggers a past abusive [more…]

Song: You’ve Lost, That Tin-gly Feel-ing

There’s that well-known scene in the movie Top Gun when Maverick (Tom Cruise) sings to Kelly McGillis in the bar. It’s the Righteous Brothers song, You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling. Well, we’re changing that up a bit. And yes, I know that’s totally cheesy… But this is a great illustration of anxiety and how misunderstood [more…]

The Whistler

My readers know that I’ve slowly been “coming out of the closet” regarding my strong belief that death is not real. You can read about that here. The body dies, and fortunately… we are not the body! For now, let’s just think of it as if we are that which animates the body for a relatively short time. And [more…]

Women Rising Up!

Bob Dylan sang that the times they are a-changin’. He recorded that song in the early to mid-1960’s, and he was right. And he still is right. Today we’ll be talking about one aspect of this change. I’ve written some here about my trip to Israel and France back in May, and something that we talked [more…]

Insecure, Codependent Female? Not Anymore…

It’s hard to describe the feeling of this one, but I’ll try. I just feel so good after some of these sessions, watching the change happen in front of my eyes. Or more accurately from session to session. You see, when I’m seeing a client, especially if it’s just the second or third session, I have no idea [more…]

Chicken Tikka Masala

So I had lunch today at my old friend’s restaurant, Carmen’s Lunch Bar. It’s a lovely spot in lovely downtown Pensacola. I just had this really strong urge for the chicken tikka masala (which is amazing, by the way). It was just so interesting how random and strong this urge was. And clear, crystal clear – it just [more…]

My Forearm Locked Up During A Gig!?

That was really fun writing a blog post again, so let’s make it a twofer (not a typo, but real urban slang). That, of course, is a reference to the classic rock radio stations of my youth that had Two-For-Tuesday. Not one song by Huey Lewis & the News, but two in a row!! It was [more…]

Let’s Try This Again…

Hi folks, I’ve been on blog vacation! And it has felt right. I just crossed the four-year mark in private practice coaching/counseling, and things really picked up a couple of months ago. And when I’ve been off work I’ve just wanted to chill. It’s getting close to double the weekly sessions from before, so I’ve been seeing [more…]

All anybody really wants is peace. The good news is that peace can be learned. I’m serious. This should be taught in middle school, but it’s not. So I’m teaching it now.
