Coronavirus is a Small Elephant in our Huge Room

** WARNING… long post **
For many, the Coronavirus is the elephant in the room. While it may be one of them, it’s a considerably small one at that (at least as I write this). 

I want to talk about “elephants in the room” a bit more, but first…

If you are unfamiliar with this phrase, it’s a metaphorical idiom in the English language and means the “elephant” is an important or enormous topic, problem, or risk that everyone knows about but no one wants to talk about. Why? Because it makes people uncomfortable or is personally, socially, professionally, or politically embarrassing, controversial, dangerous, or inflammatory. The idiom is based on the idea or school of thought that something as obvious as an elephant can appear to be overlooked in social interactions and that the psychology of repression operates on a macro scale. 

And quite an elephant the Coronavirus is… schools and businesses are closing, beaches and churches are closing, and more people are working from home for company’s that used to forbid that option. This could go on for weeks or months as the world comes to grips with this pandemic. Many of the restaurants that are open are putting “reserved” signs on every other table to help with social distancing. And, if you’re like many of my clients, friends & colleagues, you’re confronting new challenges such as decreased social interaction (very difficult for social people and extroverts!) and layoffs (decreased income), and the relentless fear that is instilled in us by the media each day.

As of the time I am writing this,  supposedly the virus has only killed 6,000 people. I say “only” not to belittle the concern, but we are distracted by this virus as if it’s the next Spanish Flu. Personally, I’d like to know the motivation behind all of the fear and no, I’m definitely not pointing fingers at the President or anyone else.

But let’s face it – we are grossly engulfed in this pandemic that again, seems small. So much so that I didn’t see any St. Patrick’s Day posts at all (other than mine) on Twitter or Facebook. Usually, at least one other person will try to cheer someone up with good wishes, even it if is just a cute little Leprechaun or a rainbow with a pot of gold.

That had me thinking… although I realize this virus is very real, why are we being steered toward hyper-focus of something that is comparatively nothing when there are MUCH bigger elephants in the room?

So, I decided to ask several people “in the know” and several people “on the streets” about their opinion on COVID-19, and I’ll share their responses soon.

But first, let’s look at elephants…

Although “gentle giants”, real elephants only kill 500 people per year and here’s whyThey are not to blame for their wrath, humans are.

But there are truly deadly “elephants” among us:

  • Tapeworms are responsible for an infection called cysticercosis that kills an estimated 700 people a year.
  • Crocodiles are responsible for 1,000 deaths per year according to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), though concrete numbers are tricky to gather.
  • Ascaris roundworm leads to an infection called ascariasis that kills an estimated 4,500 people a yearaccording to a 2013 study. The WHO notes that the infection takes place in people’s small intestine, and it’s a disease that affects more children than adults.
  • Tsetse fly transmits a disease called trypanosomiasis or sleeping sickness, a parasitic infection that at first can lead to headaches, fever, joint pain, and itchiness, but later can lead to some serious neurological problems. This kills 10,000 people per year.
  • Assassin bug – also called the kissing bug – kills 12,000 per year due to Chagas disease which is a parasitic infection passed when he bites people on the face.
  • Freshwater snail carries parasitic worms that kill up to 20,000 – 200,000 people per year with a disease called schistosomiasis which causes intense abdominal pain and blood in the stool or urine.
  • DOGSman’s best friend – is one of the deadliest animals out there. Specifically those with rabies virus (which can be prevented using vaccines). Rabies-infected dogs kill 35,000 each year, according to WHO.
  • And the often near-invisible Mosquitos kill 750,000 people per year and is considered the world’s deadliest animal.
  • Personally, I believe that the MOST deadly “elephant in the room” is HUMANS. Not only do our fellow humans kill just under 500,000 people each year worldwide, but we also kill much more than that if we include animals and the destruction of our mountains, oceans, forests, etc. all in the name of money, greed, hate, and ego. That’s why I’ve been a strong advocate for animals and our planet since my first animal rescue at age 3. And that’s why 15% of every Plantology” purchase goes to animal and environmental welfare organizations on a rotation basis.

While it’s true that these “elephants” are very diverse, there is at least one thing that they all have in common and that is as President Trump said… we’re all in this together.

But if you are familiar with my forensic background and 35-years of working with international government agencies and professionals, you likely understand how many contacts I have who would be considered “in the know”.

So, I decided to ask a few of them a general question (without leading them like the media often does)…

“Hey, what is your take on the Coronavirus – specifically COVID-19?”

For obvious reasons, I cannot share their names or contact information. However, here are some of their replies…

  • A year and a half ago I kept telling my wife we need stocks of this and that in case of emergency. She was not very cooperative and sometimes politely objected to how much I would spend on ammo, training, medical supplies, fuel, freeze-dried food, and so on. I told her the world is a dangerous place. Volcanoes, earthquakes, viruses, tidal waves, nuclear power plant meltdowns, riots, and floods all threaten us over the past decades. Then… we have a viral outbreak. Needless to say, she isn’t complaining about my stockpiles anymore.
  • China didn’t start this intentionally. No one did. But their communist bullshit multiplied the “shit hits the fan” (SHTF) factor by about 10,000. Had the outbreak occurred in a free country it wouldn’t have killed 5,000+ in less than five months. The virus was traced back to November in Wuhan province in central China. The communist government did what they always do which is suppress information to make the communist party look good. Consequently, the world didn’t know about it until the last few days of December. January 7th was when the first person died outside of China – a woman in Thailand who suffered until her death.
  • President Trump assembled a Coronavirus task force just as he should have – the first week of January. Then on January 31, he declared a national health crisis and mobilized a whole government approach to control the threat. A couple weeks ago he declared a state of emergency. This is a striking contrast to how the previous Administration handled the SARS outbreak that infected 60,000,000 (1 in 5) Americans and killed more than 13,000. The then-President Obama didn’t declare a state of emergency for six months. Following that model, President Trump would have had to wait until July this year, and he didn’t.
  • The media is all over Trump blaming him for a lack of action and poor leadership. The Governor of Illinois blamed Trump for not shutting down systems that are in control of the state — not the federal government — so if anyone in Illinois is to blame for spreading the viruses, it’s the Governor himself who controls his state.
  • An anchor on MSNBC claims President Trump should be charged with negligent homicide (manslaughter or 2nd-degree homicide) – this anchor claims Trump is responsible for the deaths of several Americans who contracted the virus (which I think is !@#$%^&*). In fact, that actually may be part of the biggest case of “fake news” I’ve seen… not that the virus is fake but a lot of the media’s fear-mongering is.
  • The outbreak is being used as a political weapon against President Trump and the media attention is causing stocks to fall drastically just before the next election. This is exactly (and suspiciously) what many Liberals have openly called for — an economic crisis to hurt the US so President Trump will not serve a second term.
  • The virus is a scare (thanks, China) and it has no vaccine. It’s not fear due to its fatality rate (the flu is much worse), but because we don’t know enough about it. So we are unprepared; it’s spreading faster than anyone can track and in ways, we have yet to identify.
  • In all the dust being kicked up about this, the conspiracy theorists are claiming this is another attempt by the CIA to kill people to “thin the herd” so to speak. Supposedly this has been known by the world’s elite for ages. They point to the labels on the Lysol Spray Disinfectant can as proof. On the labels, it does list “coronavirus” as one of its protective uses. What many don’t know is that “coronavirus” is a type or family of viruses, just like the flu. There are millions of flu types, not just one. “Coronavirus” is like that; there are tens of thousands of “coronaviruses” and SARS was one of them. Under a microscope, one can see its cells have a distinctive cluster that resembles a crown so it’s called a “coronavirus”. This current strain is being called CoVid-19 for its discovery in November 2019.
  • Gas prices have dropped, Iran is looking at losing a million people, China is worried about possibly losing their rank as the #2 economy. FINALLY, our legislators are talking about bringing manufacturing back to the USA to avoid the big problem we have now with China possibly not sending us the medicine we need to fight the epidemic they caused. Oh, and airfare now starts at only $30 roundtrip.
  • Families are being forced to eat together and talk to each other now since many can’t go to work or school. Our border is about to be more secure than ever and this time the Democrats can’t say much about it. Our enemies are weaker because the Liberal states got hit harder and now they are trying to make nice with Trump.
  • Amazon is hiring an additional 100,000 people in the USA alone just to keep up with the frenzy, and even prime delivery days are unavailable. On the positive side, this virus is creating jobs (at least temporary ones).
  • Everyone seemingly and suddenly has Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and is afraid of germs. This means they suddenly have a strong respect for personal space. Personally, I couldn’t be happier. I love this virus, lol.
  • President Trump could rescue a litter of kittens from a burning gas station and the Democrats still wouldn’t shut up about what an asshole they think he is, not sure where this plays into the virus, but I don’t expect the Dems to change any time soon.
  • The American people are starting to wake up, especially those on welfare. This stimulus package being considered is the biggest ever and Trump doesn’t want to repeat it. This trillion-dollar package might include as much as $1,000 for each WORKING American to help (not carry) a household through up to a month if they were economically affected by the virus. Welfare recipients and illegal aliens won’t get a dime because they are not “working Americans” who have been displaced by the virus. Millionaires also won’t get any money for obvious reasons.
  • I think it’s great that the virus has gotten the attention of the citizens of the United States. Despite what many are saying, this stimulus is perfectly legal and constitutional because it is being used ONCE to rescue / protect Americans under severe economic threat by a pandemic that started in an enemy country and crossed our borders. This is part of the President’s job… not bailing out the automaker unions like the previous administration. That was flat out wrong. Trump’s actions are within the President’s constitutional duties. I’m personally very proud of President Trump for that and for lowering our tax liability during this rough time. Democrats are complaining about that too, by the way. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims there is no excuse for lowering taxes again, and suggested it’s corrupt and unAmerican. Plus, running Amazon out of New York eliminated thousands of jobs for New Yorkers. I hope she loses her seat this year.

But, according to Meghan McCain, we aren’t taking this seriously enough… aren’t we though?

If you are familiar with my personal background and 35-years of working in psychology, you may understand how many mental health and spiritual contacts I have. Although I am apolitical, I do know a few “conspiracy theorists” too. So, to be fair, I decided to ask a few of them the same non-leading question…

“Hey, what is your take on the Coronavirus – specifically COVID-19?”

To respect their privacy, I’m not revealing their names either but here are their replies…

  • I have had the feeling it is a big distraction during the election. I feel it is being taken way out of proportion.
  • My entire retirement community is shut down. Midwesterners are leaving in hoards. At 80 years old, I’m more scared of isolation than the virus.
  • My gut tells me there is something we don’t know about. It’s not only a distraction, but it’s also manipulation.
  • It’s a distraction but only to do a reset. We as a world were needing a new direction. It takes a disaster to reset and that is unfortunate. Maybe we can learn from this one so we can “reset” without such trauma. Keep your eyes open, your heart open. Spend your time reading, walking, getting in nature, resting, meditating, doing those things you have been saying you can’t do because you don’t have time. Let’s emerge as a race of humans in a different world because at the end of this, we will (or at least should) be different. Let’s make this downtime count.
  • I believe that this is a distraction while the new world order is being put in place. There is definitely something going on that “they” don’t want us to be aware of.
  • I feel it’s happening from the Universe – call it karma that we brought on ourselves and also karma that’s long overdue. It started in China – ever seen how they treat animals and other humans (torture, organ harvesting, the list goes on)? As a collective race who thinks they are superior (and we’re definitely not), we destroy everything and now our lives are being destroyed, even if we don’t get the virus. We can’t expect to treat living beings with hate and destruction and continue living our lives as-is. That’s not the way it works. 
  • The scales are tipped. This is spiritual warfare and the spiritual people will win.
  • Behind the scenes are thousands of famous people like Bill Gates, Prince Andrew, and Tom Hanks who are getting arrested because Harvey Weinstein released his little black book. It’s part of the Qanon Cover-Up (um, I had to Google this)
  • The government wants us off the streets and safe in our homes so we don’t get hurt when they take down the Federal Reserve, the Rothchilds, Morgans, Clintons, and all those banking and other crooks.

Is this just a political agenda? Is it spiritual warfare? Is the fear frenzy part of this media manipulation? Or is it just another small elephant in our huge room full of elephants?

Therefore, since this all seems unstable, I wanted to provide you with some stability knowing that we here atMozelle Martin are doing everything we can to keep our customers and clients safe.

We are always diligent because I have been a germophobe since childhood, and I’m also very introverted. I have always worked from home, so staying at home is an everyday occurrence for me. On the other hand, I chuckle at my very extroverted husband and as a Type A woman, I have forced him into lockdown, lol. However, we have taken some extra precautions until further notice:

  • No in-person meetings
  • No attendance at events, premieres, screenings, readings, etc.
  • All meetings are being conducted by appointment via telephone or video

Furthermore, it’s important to understand that these “elephants” have coexisted with us since the Antonine Plaque in 165 CE and will continue to do so until the world ends. That means… COMMON SENSE is and has always been necessary.

For example:

  • Hand washing should have been part of your daily hygiene since you started breathing. However, hand sanitizer is amazing in my opinion but it’s definitely not all created equal.
    • Since Amazon, eBay and other retailers are out of stock on hand sanitizers and are prohibiting sales on their platforms, you can get some of my “Plantology Skincare” hand sanitizers. It is 100% anti-cruelty and is stronger than the over-the-counter brands.
    • If you are using over-the-counter sanitizer, you may find that they dry out your skin. Winter does that also so, to add some moisture to your skin while still protecting yourself, try some of my 100% vegan soaps, body wash, and lotions.
    • Be sure to also protect and moisturize your lips.
  • Being “germ-aware”, covering sneezes and coughs, etc. should have been taught to you by your parents or grandparents. Hopefully, you’re teaching your younger generations so they can teach theirs too.
  • Immune systems in babies, the elderly, and other vulnerable people are nothing new so precautions should always be considered. These were talked about when I was a candy striper in the nursing home in the 1970s.
  • Being aware of who you are kissing, having sex with, drinking or drugging with, shaking hands with, and sharing food with, etc. should have been instilled in you long before now. If you need some education on this, start with this video.
  • Also since this is a time of stress for many, you may find yourself eating “comfort food” or participating in “emotional eating”. If so, this can cause zits. Don’t fret, I have you covered.
    • I offer 100% anti-crueltyZit Zappers“.
    • I also offer 100% organic vegan sugar scrubs for your face to help keep them away, and…
    • Salt scrubs for your body to keep you soft.
    • If you are pacing or cleaning your house to stay busy, treat your feet too.

Are you looking for something to add to your#Quarantineor for your#MyPandemicSurvivalPlan?

If you’d like more tips on how to protect yourself, you will find them here.

You could also keep obsessing over theCDCandWHOwebsites, and you could educate yourself on some of the10 worst pandemics in history, but…

You could have fun and do some uniquely interesting and scientific things to increase and fine-tune your self-awareness and strengthen your mental health.

OR…

You could shop my close-outs (limited supply items!) for you and your loved ones. None of my products are made in China. I handmake all products right here in Arizona. And if you are an animal lover and care about our environment, as a reminder, 15% of every Plantology” purchase goes to animal and environmental welfare organizations on a rotation basis.

I do not believe in “price gouging” and I always offer FREE SHIPPING in the USA.

OR…

insurance

Now, after all the above information, what do YOU think about the COVID-19?

I’m sure someone will hate me for this but… did “we the people” really think we could continue as-is? I have never thought of humans as “superior” over anything. “Superior” things don’t destroy their own world. Ignorance, fear, anger, ego, hatred, greed… they destroy their own world for they are not “superior”.

Why I Turned Down a Ted Talk

In case you missed it, I auditioned for a TEDx talk in another town several hours away, back in September 2018 and was accepted for the main talk (called conference) scheduled for January 2019.

However, I have decided to pass on it this time, with the agreement that I have the option of presenting at the TedX Conference in January 2020 instead, which I also won’t be doing. I guess I am not that interested anymore.

Yes, I realize this was a huge opportunity as it has been on my bucket list for 10 years. However, what you may not know is just how intense the scheduling and deadlines are to do a TED Talk of any kind.

During the process I have received several questions that I will briefly answer here:

(1) No, you do not get paid to do a TED Talk, in fact, you incur expenses in the form of time, money, and energy! I have always donated time, money, and energy to things I am passionate about, so this was not a big deal to me. But if traveling is problematic or you have budget concerns, definitely consider this before applying to audition.

(2) If you work an 8-5 job or have small kids or elderly parents you are caring for, you most definitely will require a very strong, diligent, and flexible support system and / or a very understanding boss. This was one of my main concerns due to an elderly parent.

(3) If you have health concerns, the stress with the TEDx scheduling and intense pressure put on you (often with very unrealistic expectations) can very easily exacerbate symptoms.

(4) All other questions are best answered at your local TEDx location since all operate a bit differently.

Now the question I am getting is WHY did I pass up this opportunity?

Well, if the above didn’t help answer that, maybe this will.

Without getting into a ton of details, this should help give you an idea as to “why”:

* I missed out on almost a month of planning script-wise because of this elderly parent in ICU (hospital) in another state.

* I was preparing for a large court-case / testimony deadline. My career has always been my priority and testifying as an expert witness is tough. Therefore it is imperative to have all the details in order by checking, rechecking, and rechecking again.

* I was helping financially & emotionally support my loved ones during a different crisis, so helping them resituate took priority.

* I was working on the deadline of the next book in my self-help series, which was due to publisher in a few days. This book series is my true passion-project, so…

* With all of this combined, I just could not give the TedX opportunity the time and attention it needed… nor did I want to.

In addition, most people do their TED Talk for a few main reasons: 

(A) to gain credibility prior to writing a book… I have written dozens over my 30-year career; 

(B) to gain credibility as an expert in their field… I’ve done that too, since 1987; and

(C) to bring more clients to their business. Everyone could use more clients, right? I am passion-driven, not money-driven so this alone was not enough to push myself.

I had an amazing time at the audition and have made some great friends during the preparation workshops. However, pushing myself to submit to this opportunity would have done nothing more than take me away from my passions and priorities.

And please don’t get me started on the contract I had to sign.

This was simply not a win-win opportunity.

Oh, and in case you are wondering this was in no way an “emotional decision”. I have always been very calm under stress and I am very level-headed. I do not impulsively jump into major decisions like this or say “no” to opportunities without significant amounts of critical thinking. The timing simply was not aligned. 

Therefore, after contemplating my decision very deeply for weeks, I felt an enormous amount of relief and peace with my decision.

So I guess I am sharing this with you as a reminder to always do what’s best for you…

Handwriting is Much More Than Pen & Paper

Knowledge and self-awareness are two powerhouses of the mind. The more you have, the more you can survive and succeed. Therefore a lack of knowledge can cause a lack of personal power, and we’ve all heard the term “only the strong survive”.
.
The main step to empowering yourself is to identify what disempowers you in the first place. Due to the ego’s involvement, this is no easy task! However, your handwriting results will identify these things for you, so you don’t have to.
.
As an individual with no emotional attachments to your life or outcomes, I am much more objective than you are and, when you read your full personality profileyour subconscious shows me what is going on in your world. More than that, it tells me what your life has been like since birth and how traumatic or otherwise notable other people, places, events, and situations have affected your mind, personality, fears, successes, failures, etc.
.
How does it work?
.
Your brain perceives handwriting as a language, which is both written and spoken. The #1 activity which fires up the most brain neurons is language, # 2 is the act of handwriting. Your brain also sees your handwriting as a smorgasbord of symbols that only the physical act of writing can comprehend. Just like exercises for your physical body, making specific graphological changes are exercises for your mind and subconscious.
.
Let me ask you something: “Do you journal?”
.
You may know that journaling has been around for over 100 years, during which time a version of journaling has been recommended by most psychologists around the globe for nearly as long. However, you may not know that if you are creating unhealthy letter shapes, there is only so much “therapy” journaling can do.
.
Specifically changing your letter shapes, such as those suggested in my very successful, evidence-based 1987 – 2015 Clinical Graphology program, takes journaling to a whole new level. You see, by making specific graphological changes tailored to your unique personality, you are…​
.
  • Opening your inner wisdom
  • Cleansing emotional blocks
  • Producing or furthering radical change from the subconscious to the conscious (and superconscious)
  • Becoming free from confusion and doubt
  • Gaining clarity
  • Discovering your passions and purpose
  • Journeying from the “old you” to the “new you” which is has a strong ethereal component
.
You see, handwriting is much more than pen and paper and involves much more than just writing stuff down. It is a revolution of yourself; an inspiration acquired by releasing doubts and fears so you can shine. Writing with the purpose of enhancing your life is an act of self-love; a safe place to get to know yourself, to discover who you really are, and to become the “you” you wish to be. Many lose their personal power by purely living in a confusing world that infiltrates their minds with the status quo, social expectations, judgments, false beliefs, rants, biases, injustices, victimization, and more.
.
The act of handwriting releases the deep answers that you have within your subconscious and allows you to connect and bond with your inner self (aka: inner child) in a way never before attempted or accomplished.
.
I know you are thinking: “With technology, does anyone write anymore?” The answer is we never stopped writing, we just write differently. In other words, in years gone by, we wrote phone numbers, drew maps, and wrote out directions. We wrote personal cards and letters and updated our calendars. Now we jot down to-do notes, email addresses, and GPS coordinates. After all, when you drive by a billboard or see a store you wish to remember at a later date, you likely don’t pull over and park on the side of the road, only to set up your laptop, and email the information to yourself. You can also get in an accident or get a high-priced traffic ticket and fine for using your cell phone when driving.
.
Instead, we usually scribble on whatever is closest to us such as that fast food bag on the passenger seat.
.
While we are on the topic of technology, think of your brain as a computer. Your brain is part of your body’s electrical system (Central Nervous System). Like the “bites” in your computer, your brain has 10+ billion nerve cells that control the signals sent to the brain. The brain then sends chemicals to your muscles.
.
When we learn to write cursive as a child, it’s like developing “empathy steroids”. Why, or perhaps how? Because the first letter on the paper represents you. The next letter represents other people. Same with the first, and consecutive words. So, when you connect letters, you are connecting to other people. Even if we haven’t written in cursive since 6th grade, the key is we learned, connected, and therefore built empathy.
.
In my Master’s program, I wrote a research paper and looked up the dates when the states in the USA stopped teaching cursive. I then compared those dates to their local crime statistics. I cannot say there is a direct cause and effect, but I can definitely say there is a disturbing correlation. I used these statistics in my speech below.
.
WATCH MY Ted Talk Presentation…
.
tedx
.
When you write, signals are transmitted between your brain and hand through the brain stem, into the spinal column, along with the central nervous system, and into your muscles. This is what enables you to pick up your pen and write. Therefore, when you make specific and strategic graphological changes, you are sending new signals in reverse – from the pen back to the brain – with new instructions until the changes become habitual.
.
Therefore, because there is a close connection between what we tell ourselves and how we feel – and what we believe our reality to be – it is important to realize that every strategic handwriting change has a core thought the message that is integrated into the exercise. Again, these flow from pen -> hand -> brain and back again, which then become internalized and integrated into a new belief pattern. That is the power behind reprogramming the brain’s neurological connections.
.
When I worked at the high school during my practicum, I was a Behavioral Specialist in the Special Needs (S.N.) department. With the parent’s and psychologist’s permission, I put many of the S.N. kids through Clinical Graphology and, within 30 days, their focus was better. Within 45 days their grades were better and, at the end of the six-month program, most no longer tested as S.N. at all. When I brought it to the school’s attention, they were very displeased.
.
Why? Because schools get paid more for S.N. students.
.
Remember when you were in school or college? Just think of how much easier it note-taking by hand helped us remember the information better. The brain recalls handwriting changes in much the same way.
.
In both the S.N. and non-S.N. students, I watched the school pass them to the next grade and even allow them to graduate – even when they only had a 2nd grade (equivalent) education. They justified this shameless act by saying such things as, “We are graduating him because he did not put forth any effort and the teachers are frustrated”. Wonder what will happen when this student tries to fill out a job application or has to read and sign a contract or lease his first apartment.
.
Empathy is almost a thing of the past with our youth.

By not teaching proper handwriting styles in schools, we are removing a significant amount of the ability for kids to develop empathy. In addition, we are dumbing down our society. After all, these now “dumb, disrespectful, unempathetic” youth will one day be running our country when we are too damn old to do anything about it.  (WHAT A SCARY THOUGHT!!)  Perhaps the “dumbing down” is the current Government’s plan?
.
Either way, I cannot tell you how much of the below information from Carlos Mencia was 100% TRUE as witnessed first hand by me… (minus the insults)…
.

Schools stopped teaching handwriting due to typewriters starting in 1973, then it was wordprocessors, and now computers. So why not take away math classes because of calculators?
.
Ridiculous isn’t it?
.
Many have removed art and music classes too. I mean, why bother… these are only two more of the most helpful things for healing and emotional intelligence.
.
Then in college, we are forced to take a bunch of bullsh*t classes that have absolutely nothing to do with our career goals. So we graduate college with a $100,000+++ loan that we can never pay back because we can only get a measly $16 / hour job with a Master’s degree and 20 years of experience. When a high school graduate with no college can make that in fast food and grocery industries, why would our youth ever consider college?
.
To make matters worse, the Department of Education’s loan servicers want $1400+ / month. Yeah, okay. Realistically, we could have only had a $30,000 student loan without the unnecessary, bullsh*t classes. Just think of how much money would have already been paid back!

I mention all that because I think we could likely agree that these things have suffocated and stressed our society’s infrastructure. In short, that’s all just examples of  f*cked-up reasoning.
.
If you ask me, the entire school system across the USA should be scrapped and the handwriting class curriculum should be rebuilt by handwriting therapists (those with significant training in both handwriting and psychology!!). For the rest of the classes, each curriculum should be designed in a streamlined approach by other experts in the applicable fields – but only those experts who actually give a damn about society now and for future generations. Instead, historically it’s all been about how much $$$$ they can add to their bureaucratic-lined bank accounts.
.
… I’m sure you can see how passionate I am about this topic and how important this is for current and future generations!
.
Now… back to the handwriting info…
.
A common question I receive by mental health clients is, “You mean all I have to do is change my handwriting and my personality will change too?”
.
Yes! And to be honest, I don’t get how people believe in God (someone you can’t see or touch) as a separate entity floating in the sky but they don’t believe in the power of putting pen to paper (something you can see and feel).
.
Either way, to illustrate this concept more…
.
I have played piano since I was 4 years old. I did not play for many years and had to reteach myself. As long as I was consciously thinking about where to place each finger on the keyboard while reading the music, I was able to proceed slowly and sometimes painfully, even though I still made some mistakes. However, after repetitious practice, my fingers responded automatically and permanently while eliminating the mistakes… all without conscious awareness. In other words, once your handwriting changes pass the state of consciousness, the changes become automatic, permanent and habitual.
.
I know, “changing handwriting to effect behavioral changes” sounds too simple to be true theoretically. However, in the application, it is deeply profound and requires a strong self-commitment. It is definitely not easy, but it is very powerful.
.
In closing,  I urge you to consider the other various options of taking a deep-sea dive into your own mind. Then if you decide to seek therapy elsewhere, show the reports to your therapist. This not only will streamline your treatment plan but it will also save you a lot of time and money!
.
Just please do not use your insurance for any mental health treatment.
