Learn to Trust Your Intuition

The inner knowing that fearlessly drops into awareness is INTUITION.
How do we have CLARITY of Mind to allow FLOW state to happen?
Mental wellness “self checks” through out the day set a foundation.
Ask yourself:
Am I starting my day with gratitude and integrating throughout the day?
How is my selfcare & DEEP PLAY?
Nutrition?
Exercise?
Sleep?
Sex life?
Random acts of kindness?
Focused Intentions/ follow through?
Am I spending time in Nature?
Who do I share my free time with?
What is my inner dialogue like?
Who is allowed in my Inner Circle?
Are my words, thoughts and actions matching up? My colleagues? My friends? My family?
Can I say NO or not now if I am overwhelmed or overbooked?
Inner Peace is unique for all of US & requires UNIVERSAL ingredients of awareness, self love and altruism to navigate moments of crisis to thrive.
Remember WE all process and perceive our environment in our own unique way, I call it our NEUROSTYLE.
By integrating the FABULOUS Five dimensions:
Biological
Psychological
Social
Cultural
Spiritual
&
Sixth Sense Intuition
We can…

Mental Wellness, Life Hacks & Reverent Relationships with Dr. Joyce Spurgeon

Are you experiencing low energy, overwhelm or stress?

Financial challenges?

Seasonal mood changes?

Emotional disconnect?

Anticipation of the holidays?

You are not alone and this is the episode for you!

It is an honor to have Dr. Joyce Spurgeon, board certified psychiatrist back to discuss mental wellness, life hacks and the importance of meaningful relationships:

 

Joyce A Spurgeon, MD completed medical school at the University of Louisville and went on to do her residency in adult psychiatry there.  When she finished her residency, she stayed at University of Louisville as the associate training director for the psychiatric residency.  She progressed up and associate professor and became the training director and her clinical work was specializing in the treatment of mental illness in the peripartum period.  Following her time at UofL, she changed the directions in her career.  She was hired as the only psychiatrist at a Schneck Medical Center in Seymour, Indiana where she has worked for the past 7 years.  She is proud to work closely with the primary care providers to help treat mental illness in a vastly underserved community.

Thank you Dr. Joyce Spurgeon for joining me in 2022:

Health Integrity Part 1 & Part 2

Sacred Remembrance of Jeannie, Dr. Joyce’s best friend who passed away from suicide:

Two little girls kneel over the mud pile- they are making their specialty- mud pies are so much fun to create.  They are covered in mud, their sweaty hair sticky to their heads, but huge smiles wreath their faces.  They join hands and pledge to be best friends forever.  Those hands age over the years but they always find their way back to each other.  In middle and high school, their lives divide but when things get really tough, the call in the middle of the night always goes to the other.  Their adult lives move them into different locations, yet when they talk, it is as if no time has passed.  Something happened in those early years over the mud piles, wild sledding snow days, church camp, and bike riding…..they became each other’s anchor.  They each wanted to find ways to help other people.  One became a nurse, the other a doctor.  Yet, when they talked, they were just two little girls in adult bodies.

When mental illness hit my friend, I , as a psychiatrist, felt scared.  I knew what was happening.  I could see all the warning signs, and I could not control the progression.  I tried to prepare her parents for what might happen and what I hoped to never witness.   I got her into treatment.  I asked for many favors for people to try to help her because I could only be her friend.  It was not enough.  My worst fears were realized…..my tow headed best buddy from the age of 4 was gone…..she hung herself because we had told all of the local gun stores to not sell her a gun.  We thought we had protected her.  It is only in a small town that you can get away with this type of protection.  Yet, she believed that the only way that she could be free was to stand before Jesus and ask for forgiveness, so she decided to go and do that.  Yet what she left behind….well, she left us journals that tried to explain her reasoning but only revealed her illness.  For, in truth, none of us are better because she is gone.

Jeannie died by suicide on May 17th.  That day is a day that changed the course of my life.  I lost one of my anchors, one of the people who knew me as no one else will ever know me in my life.  When she died, I promised myself that I would not let the way she died define who she was.  She has and will always be my best buddy from my childhood, the keeper of my dreams and hopes.  And, I will continue to carry her with me for the rest of my life.  She still walks with her hand in mine- I just can’t feel it in real life anymore, but I know it is there.    So, I talk about how she died because I feel like she was taken too soon from us all because of her mental illness, yet I want you to know that her life was so much more to me.  I never thought that this is how the story of those two little girls would end.  I will miss you forever, my friend.

ININ, IN INTEGRITY

It is important to pause, reflect and Ssssssssh yourself.
Ask yourself:
Am I staying on track with my family, personal and professional goals?
How is my mental, physical and spiritual health?
How are my relationships with friends & family?
How do I want to finish 2022 strong?
Am I staying ININ?
In Integrity to myself and others? #ININ
I have had recent ascension media incubator team meetings in the last few weeks with the intention of finishing 2022 strong & with grace and ease moving into 2023.
I did a show end of September on my “On Staying Sane” series with my co~host Cathleen O’Toole “Focused Intention to Manifestation” and received a thumbs up from listeners on the tips and “quantum hacks” to manage everyday life.
With 111 shows so far this year and the honor of being in the finals in the People’s Choice Podcast Awards out of 5.7 million listeners in the category “Skeptics Guide To Science and Medicine” I am deep diving on my own WHY of creating content that mirrors the wisdom I have as an adult and child psychiatrist, intuitive and mother of a charismatic teen.
I just reviewed my intentions of producing ascension media:
Ascension Media will help people use their own energy of suffering and use all the gifts of their own Higher Self to go from crisis to thriving. Love wins. Love conquers fear. Don’t mistake kindness for weakness.”
With humility and gratitude I feel like my intentions and manifestations are on path as a Mom, Doctor, Producer.
Yesterday was a very emotional day as a Mother.
My son is at a school called Reach Middle School that honors his unique Neurostyle. He is thriving there, yet when I look at his test results at his Individual Education Plan at his triennial review my heart and mind are filled with emotions of “how does he do it?”
His journey of success and all it takes for him to process his environment is humbling. He is my teacher, my hero, my inspiration.
All that is in motion for the rest of 2022 will elevate and celebrate the Embrace Your Neurostyle and Beyond Vision!

I was completely SURPRISED as I put my 🎩 in the ring 11 days into the 31 days of voting as someone said they wanted to vote for me.
My podcast has been a labor of love to create a library to reveal the multifaceted dimensions of my vision and mission. I have said NO to the old paradigm as I believe the integrity of media needs a facelift.
I appreciate & honored to be a finalist in the Skeptics Guide to Science and Medicine category as I practice integrative psychiatry and I AM an Intuitive as well.
I produce multiple series under the Dr. Denise Show with the intention of attracting unique collaborations (which are IN Motion).

Focused Intention to Manifestation! On Staying Sane

So what is focused intention and is it something you should strive to increase in your life?  Dr. Denise tackles this important question in her “On Staying Sane” series of her podcast.   You’ll learn how to actually stay present in the moment of NOW and how running late, creating a vision and checking off your errands can all be done with focused intention.   From ways to change your mindset as you get out of bed in the morning to “seeing the Good” even in the suffering of daily life, this episode has a take-away for just about everyone.  Hear the connection between focused intention and manifestation and how to shift the energy of annoyance, frustration or anxiety.  Sit back, relax and look inward.

Embrace Your Neurostyle and Beyond with G. Beverly Bergmann Part 2

Tenacity, Love and Patience become the Trinity for today!

Part 2:

“Dare to Be … A Prayer”

 

Dare to dream

Dare to step forward and

Dare to be.

 

And, as I do,

I claim and honor my authentic Self

which has been

Nurturing

me more than I realize.

It is with this awareness and

Inner Knowing that I

give thanks to my Inner Wisdom

which is and always has been

One with God.

My soul and the spirit of me are united as a Trinity.

Each morning as I awake and

every night when I retire,

my Heart and Soul connect

in prayers

of gracious thanksgiving literally

elevating me to a Blessed Realm

where dreams manifest with

loving sincerity

reverently embracing me

in an ineffable essence of “Grace.”

It is within this sacred space of Silence where I am united

One with God.

Tears flow down my cheeks and I give Thanks.

 Amen

Embrace Your Neurostyle and Beyond with G. Beverly Bergmann Part 1

It is an honor to have Beverly Bergmann join me for the September 2022 Embrace Your Neurostyle and Beyond Series.

Bev shares her “aha moment” feeling of liberation and freedom on the cellular level and true integration of mind, body & soul with the concept of embracing her unique neurostyle.

We also embraced what I call adaptive vs. restrictive perfectionism by being tenacious in dealing with tech issues, hence part 1 and 2 done.

Suicide Prevention Awareness Month: On Staying Sane

We talk about the Hot Potato Game, what do if you have a genetic mental health challenge and shame and suicide. Dr. Denise provides some practical tips and tools for different age groups, including why you might not have to go to a doctor to address this topic. (Hint: Spiritual Leader.).

Gratitude, good nutrition, fitness and helping others — it’s all part of the talk on this very important topic:
