Maat E's Mental Health Message:
Speak from the heart and be present! When we get in to discussions or conflicts, criticisms about the other person and issues of the past can be quick to come out. We may start telling a story or giving a lecture about what the person has or has not done. Less often do we speak from the heart about how we FEEL in the MOMENT. "I'm angry, hurt, sad, scared...etc." Most times we don't speak our truth and we simply act defensive. Instead of defending the past be present and use the Spirit within for courage to say what we feel. During the next conflict get in touch with your Spirit and speak from the heart. The conversation will stay in the moment and you will feel present. Peace, Maat E.
