The Golden Thread

Introducing The Golden Thread!

What comes to mind when you say the words “The Golden Thread?”

When we pay attention to our words, thoughts and actions in the Moment Of Now and are in the Space of Awareness, Self Love and Altruism our unique Golden Tapestry is created.


Show Notes:
My Thoughts
Mission Statement:
I am aligned with being a Facilitator of Health and Wellness to help ALL KIND to reach their highest vibration and their highest self through a greater awareness of consciousness. I intend to continue to co-create with many ThoughtLeaders to integrate our thoughts to achieve a better planet and Universe.
As If Goals :
Meditation and Kindness will be a “natural part” of everyday life (just like brushing your teeth). This will raise the vibration of the planet exponentially.
Society will accept that we all have intuition (in varying degrees), we are all connected and that we are naturally evolving as a species.
Society will accept that there is abundance and we need to live in a way that respects our earth.
We need to redefine many terms to allow all of us to keep an open mind and open heart to evolve and strive to be our best self.
Examples: Intuitive not psychic. Wellness not Illness. Re-Order instead of DisOrder.
I agree with the Dalai Lama. Compassion is the key. It starts with compassion for self and moves to compassion for family and friends to compassion for our communities—- to Our World—-to Our Universe. “All Sentient Beings”. His Holiness is including all beings on Earth and the Universe.Society will truly embrace compassion.
Every M.D. and health care provider will be Universally addressing Mind, Body & Spirit to achieve wellness.  It will be a part of every intake and treatment plan.   An Integrative Wellness Plan with a nurse practitioner and social worker co-creating  as first line of intake to present to the M.D..
Mind Perspective
“We are our thoughts”. “Thoughts change the World”. Everyone will truly embrace this concept as it will be part of our education system.
As doctors we are “Facilitators of Wellness”. We can validate someone’s pain and suffering and let them know their Western Medicine Diagnosis. Define “Integrative Wellness Plan”
Love yourself enough to take care of yourself and do not live from a fear based perception.  I am not saying we as humans will never have fear, it is primal. Realize there are solutions to getting out of fear -based perceptions.  They are limiting thoughts.
Dr. Denise


Next Phase IS Here!

As a mom and child psychiatrist I can say that our children need us now more than ever.
The temptations, easy access via internet & opportunities for fast track behavior is rampant.
The social hierarchies and complex online landscapes makes it very important to “be in the know” and truly connect and talk with your child or teen.
I have strategically prioritized my decisions, schedule, time investments and saying NO to personal and professional opportunities to BE a present parent.
“Protect your brain” Is one way of talking to your child about making good choices mentally and physically.
An authoritative parenting style, not authoritarian is one with KIND, yet FIRM limits.
Explaining your WHY for rules and boundaries coupled with taking interest & quality time goes a long way for the connection.
I have almost 25 years in practice as a child psychiatrist in my community with listening to feelings and concerns of our youth.
It is ALOT to navigate.
The depression & anxiety rates, substance use, social and academic challenges are alarming in my community and globally.
Prioritize your child, if you can be the one to pick or drop them off from school (this is when they spill the beans) do it.
Be AHEAD of their next developmental shift (ask questions, educate, an encourage open dialogue).
Real LIfe:
We had three gun threats at my son’s school in the last 18 months.
Have an open dialogue, attend school safety meetings & be a voice at home and a vehicle for change in your community.
Talk feelings, solutions, & educate your child on mental health and relationships.
If you are weak in any area get a mentor, coach, family member or counselor to fill in the gaps.
Learn the TEEN Talk.
Say your sorry if you are wrong.
Engage your child and know which social media outlets, games & influencers are resonating with them & why (even if you are not a fan).
Have a great holiday weekend everyone.

KING Music and Lyrics, March on Washington by Thomas Lane: Creative Minds Series

I invite you to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. with Thomas Lane and I. I received an inspiring email that led to this interview on 1/16/23 recorded and released on MLK Day.

KING Music & Lyrics by Thomas Lane

In the Spring of '68, the bullets rose
From a sea of hate
In Memphis Town,
they gunned him down
And the hopes of a nation went underground
Blue skies full of holes, I cried beside the radio
It's all a lie, the King can’t die
But there's blood in the shadows
My world shattered like a window


The days are hard, the journey seems so long
I hear him calling, calling calling
to carry on
Silent moon above the angry tide
His ghost looks back from the mountainside
A restless force
A riderless horse
is standing neath the pale stars
and stamping on the graveyard


Musical Bridge
A garden grows in my back yard
I walk out there when the wind blows hard
A time for Spring, a time for kings
and I will stand on that Memphis street
and hear the triumph of his heartbeat


The days are hard, I struggle to stay strong
I hear him calling, calling to carry on
The work goes on, the dream will come to pass
I hear him calling, calling, calling... free at last

In Sacred Remembrance of Martin Luther King Jr.:


The March on Washington
Maybe like you, on my journey towards clarity, there have been moments in my life where conflict and trouble seemed to melt away, leaving nothing but a bright constellation of formerly broken pieces in alignment: sometimes magical, sometimes comical, always profound.
There was a singular event that happened in my early teens when this experience occurred and became a North Star for my life. I was not alone. The same occasion impacted millions of others who bore witness to the spectacle: now etched in the history of our progress as a people –– simply referred to as The March on Washington.
Racism. The word itself seems bitter on the tongue. Even as a child, growing up in a progressive household, I could feel my stomach tighten when the subject came up…an instinctual outrage erupting over the cruelty and injustice to our black brothers and sisters –– instigated by a poisonous gene in our nation’s DNA.
These horrors were discussed frequently with my family at the dinner table. Particularly with my activist mother who, despite being a kind and compassionate woman, was privately a soul plagued by deep depressions who had lost the capacity for hope.
But then it became 1963 –– that moment in time when the cultural Tsunami of the ‘60s was beginning to take shape –– gaining conviction as it crossed the globe, invading countries, disrupting the carefully mapped blueprints for lives of quiet desperation.
This call for change came to me via books, music and Eastern thought. In wave after wave of new perspectives, it pounded against the thin shell of my white middle-class childhood, demanding something new and different; an activity, a state of mind…but remained formless until finally crystalizing into a single objective: join The March On Washington.
On August 28th, 1963 I did so.
 Early that morning, a friend and I made the long journey from New Haven to DC. I didn’t inform my parents I was going. I simply made up a shore story… and went. My reasoning was simple and telling. I wanted to avoid my mother’s negativity tainting my experience.
I tried brushing aside my guilt for this as I boarded the bus. But it accompanied me throughout the long bumpy ride.
Much of the detail and circumstance have fled from memory. But what thundered across my world was the awesome fact that I was there! I had arrived! I was in Washington DC, taking a stand with brothers and sisters. Metaphorically speaking, I was joining a march that I had been part of, ever since the day I learned how to walk.
Stepping down from the bus, I was immediately caught up in the jubilations of a kindred cause…the sight and sound of thousands and thousands of individuals flooding the National Mall…a pilgrimage transcending personal agendas to stand shoulder to shoulder with complete strangers….streaming down hills, stepping across roads to assemble in solidarity before a small stage cluttered with microphones and officials –– all overseen by the watchful eye of the Lincoln Memorial.
And there we were. Carrying banners, singing gospels and folksongs with purposeful joy that spread across this diversity of the human spirit …swollen with this moment of unity.
Thereafter, the inspiration rained down… talks by John Lewis and Roy Wilkins, performances by Mahalia Jackson, Marian Anderson, Peter, Paul & Mary, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez …to name a few. All setting the stage in emotional crescendo, to introduce me to the man who would become mentor and hero…the Rev. Martin Luther King. It was here that he gave his “I have a dream” speech…solidifying his meaning for this moment in time; that would echo his messages to us for generations to come. I listened with my heart as he guided us through his vision, his commitment to peace and brotherhood…and his call from the mountain top…free at last, free at last!
 It was an epiphany for me…the puzzle had called its pieces, letting my inner, troubled fragments settle into something whole and lit.
Somewhere, during this moment, I spotted a woman, sitting alone beside the Reflecting Pool, looking out on the Washington Monument. Somehow familiar? Stepping closer, I recognized and approached. Standing behind her, smiling with tears in my eyes, I reached around my mother’s thin frame, and cupped her eyes with my hands. In a shaky voice I said,…”Guess who?”
She didn’t have to guess, Without a word, she reached out to touch my hand with her hand…a mother’s tenderness, then turned sideways to catch my eye. The look that passed between us over a half century ago is still traveling within me now as I write these words.
