Facebook/Falsebook: Which Book, Which Story?

by Natasha Botkin

Angel with heart rose

I’ve recently read posts, blogs and such from others crying out for help from Facebook:  their cries are all about the depression and anxiety that Facebook has created for them.

Falsebook, Facebook……stories, they are stories of one’s life.  As another scrolls down this can lead to anxiety, panic attacks and depression.  Look at this person all happy, why can’t I get it together.  Look at the success of this individual, why can’t I be successful.

Let’s look from another perspective.  The one word that resonates is book….these are one’s story and not all stories are of truth; some spin big tales.  As a master intuitive and behavioral specialist, I often sit in observation mode smiling at the placating falseness and mistruth that one can often produce. Now this is not to say that all are; but they do exist more than others may realize.

Let me share a dear story: Years ago, I had one of the most intense story telling students.  She could spin quite the tale!!  After several meetings with her Grandmother, I looked at Grandma and said, “She will become the most incredible author.” Grandma amused, but not understanding, I then say, “She tells the greatest stories-now to filter out which is truth and which is fantasy is what a master teacher must muster.”  This Grandmother who was usually quite challenging – laughed, so hard tears puddled from her eyes.  This was not the first meeting, nor probably the last about the storytelling concern of her granddaughter; this brought forth a calmer, more peaceful manner to help her granddaughter write, and the last time I saw this young lady; she showed me her writing portfolio; awww, the stories that she created were purely fantasy, but a less harmful fantasy, as these are stories to entertain.

What does this have to do with Facebook, stories and feeling less than thereof.  Well, first if one does not have depression nor anxiety, then it is difficult to truly walk that walk.  However, those who do, do not fret dear ones as this is a book and in a book there are many chapters, characters and such.  Some characters you will love, some you will not and some of the things that is said and done, well it can make ya blush.

Ways to help to release an anxious moment or when it feels to big:

#1 Meditation:  If you find yourself overwhelmed and wanting to scream as you scroll.  Close your eyes, place your left hand on your heart and your right hand just above your navel.  Take a deep breath into the count of three (3).  Hold for three counts (3).  Exhale and as you breathe out place your fretful thought into a pink bubble and blow this away for three (counts).  On the last count pop it.  It is no more.  pink bubble

#2 No worries- Oh yes there are worries, it is still there:  It is not, it is a memory, a pattern, a block from the ego (Edging God Out) and this is not tru.  Repeat, this time stand up to your ego and say, “I fear you no more, I release that which does not serve; dear god I surrender the beastly to thee.”  Repeat the breathing moment for a total of 3 times.  Stupendously Be. 

In the end, what does this mean.  Never ever give up on you. Create your own story and enjoy your chapter, the good, the bad, the ugly.  In fact, look at it from another view, what story can you create.  This does not have to be negative, or one story, it can be many, fun, fantasy, everlasting, loving what your heart desires.  This is about your truth, your heart, your love to you.  You are a magnificent light being!!

Zipping to the Next Spot

by Natasha Botkin 



When is the last time you stopped and smelled the roses?  Or paused to enjoy a beautiful moment?  The rose-bush is in my own yard, a rose-bush that another thought was a hassle.  I treasure her beauty!

The other photo is one I recently clicked one crisp, early summer morning.  So many people rushing around, walking nearby, not seeing these magnificent creatures.  Me relishing in the fact that I am tickled at the symbolic message they brought to me; but more so, me taking a moment from a walk to pause in that present moment-enjoying this delightful opportunity.

Were you one who rushed past, too busy or in a hurry to cease movement even for a brief breath or two? The photo is a bit rough, I wish it were better.  Yes, I could have photoshopped it up; I am choosing not to and allow the true beauty to shine through.  As I stood and enjoyed this view, two others saw me, and joined me.  Several others stomping past, me trying to breathe in the eagles majestic grace, and snapping away as I could.

It is difficult to view; but these are two marvelous bald eagles. In this area they are not a normal occurrence, so this makes it all the more special.  As I observed and savored their presence, I felt bad.  Yes, they were dining on their feast; let’s just say the sea gulls were not happy. So, they did need their peace.  Then again, as I sat observing over 100 people zipped past.

I use the word zip.  Yes, we all have places to be, but have others become so complacent in not viewing the splendor around them.  Sadly, it is true. Zip from one activity to the next, and I used to be one.  My dog, so patient, because we are near water and she wants to swim.  However, she knows I asked her to wait, I quietly explain, “Look at the eagles-how beautiful.”

After about 20 mins, the eagles depart.  My dog and I journey to her destination to look for a stick for me to throw, so she can retrieve it.

As she swims, enjoying her delight, I ponder–how many opportunities in life, did I miss out on when I was racing to the next stop, spot, etc.  What can you say–do you do the same?  Or would you have sat and watched the majestic eagles?

The two people who stopped by told me that they stopped by to see what I was glowing about.  As one lady said, “Darling, there was a glow from you like no other, and I needed to see what it was.”  I am glad that she made the inquiry, or she would have missed out.

May you locate the ability to stop and smell the roses or pause and observe the majestic eagles or whatever opportunity happens your way.
