The Mary Mac Show | Preparing Yourself For The Holiday Season

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In this week’s episode, we discuss how to prepare yourself as we encounter the year-end holidays.

No matter which ones you celebrate, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, New Years, or many others after a loved one has died, they just don’t feel the same.

If it’s the first holiday season since you have been bereaved, or it’s a few more, trying to feel happy and enjoying the seasons as you did in the past, can be an especially difficult task.

The main thing you need to know is that you don’t have to do all you’ve done in the past.

You can decide on a different path. You can curtail your events and celebrations this year and there is nothing wrong with that.

Your emotional state is different now and you must be sensitive to that and treat yourself with more care.

So listen in to Episode 50 and please be kind to yourself as we move into this season.

The Mary Mac Show | Honoring Our Veterans

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 49, we commemorate the amazing valor of our veterans this week in the USA yet wherever you live around the world, we join with you on your special day in honoring these courageous men and women who keep us free.

Veterans are exceptional people. They go where others dare to go, do things that other dare to do, and live with the consequences.

They harbor all the pain of that experience – emotional, mental and physical.

They may come home changed to their families also emotionally, mentally and possibly physically.

They may have sustained loss of limbs, temporary or permanent injury, traumatic brain injury and post traumatic stress disorder or what was once called shell shock decades ago.

We bless our veterans and the sacrifices they and their families make for our benefit…for our freedom.

If you are having difficulty, please use the following assistance:

Visit my Crisis Connections page on my site www.MaryMac.info to find telephone helpline counselors to speak with all around the world. Don’t be shy; they are there to help when you are having a hard time.

You can also visit the Gary Sinise Foundation‘s suicide prevention telephone line. If you are a veteran in crisis or concerned about one, caring VA responders are standing by to help. Dial 1-800-273-8255 and press 1.

The Disabled American’s Veterans organization or DAV.org is ready to help, as well.

Search for homeopathic doctors with the designation CCH in your area of the world. Read their sites and speak with them to determine whom you would feel most comfortable working with.

With Much Love,

Mary Mac

The Mary Mac Show | The Power of Forgiveness

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

This week we speak about a difficult and painful subject. Forgiving others and ourselves is something that few want to talk about and less want to do.

But when unforgiveness is left to fester inside for a long time, it can lead to emotional, physical and spiritual strife which does not serve us well.

And, yes, this topic may be too early in your grieving process and I can understand that. But do take the time to learn what can happen when we let things build causing all kinds of havoc on our mind, body and spirit.

Join me in listening in to Episode 43 to take a look at what happens when we are unable or unwilling to forgive and how it affects us.

Leave your comments below.

Additional Notes:

Here you will find a search of several EFT/Emotional Freedom Technique videos by Brad Yates on the topic of forgiveness which I believe will be of great benefit for you.

Meditation Videos to help you rest.  Choose which resonate with you.

The Mary Mac Show | What Really Helps Us During Our Grieving Process II

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

This week, on my podcast, we continue to discuss what truly helps us during our grieving process.

Many people don’t take the time to learn about what can help and what doesn’t. They decide they will just go about the motions of wake, burial, grief.

Yet if we learn more about this process, we can make better decisions and alleviate unnecessary pain in the process.

Among my many suggestions, I speak about the importance of journaling and share my favorite – the Tiffany Stained Glass Window journal with gilded-gold page edging by Peter Pauper Press. (In the episode, I called them Peter Pauper Publishing…sorry for the mistake!) But you will absolutely love this gorgeous journal – link below.

Join me in listening in to Episode 41 to take a look at what specifically can help you during your grieving process.

Next week, we finish the three-part series.

Additional Notes:

My favorite journal at Peter Pauper Press.

Visit Brad Yates’ youtube channel will teach you the Emotional Freedom Technique. His videos calm your spirit and help you release emotional and physical pain as you move forward. Here are two specific videos that will help you.

Marisa Peer’s “Loving Yourself” and “I Am Enough” – these are wonderful videos – must watch!

Here are some meditation music video choices to help you rest.
