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!!

Not All Wasingtonians Drink Starbucks

by Natasha Botkin 

Heart Coffee

This is by no means a manner of trashing Starbucks.  Once upon a time, I adored the Cafe Mocha treat.  I relished in the factor that I would enjoy a quick hot sip; then after getting past that tongue burn; pondering, why do I do that even though, I know it will happen.  Rush, rush down my throat and in mere moments it was greedily gone as if it had never existed.  So, I tried the long time point of savoring the cafe mocha and would relent to the trickle of this deliciousness traveling down my throat.  Looking at an empty cup and feeling like Patrick Starfish from Spongebob after inhaling his chocolate bar. Hey where’d it go.

After many moments, and many years of enjoyment this ended for me.  It was no longer a delight, but a burden to stand in line with “are you kidding me” amounts of people all like corporate zombies “must get coffee to survive,” and the expense.  There has to be another way. It was more of an awakening for me.

My obsession with french things began again or rather in a new manner.  There are many delights of France that one day I will enjoy, I always say.   At that point in time, it was a glass coffee press.  I would grind fresh coffee beans and press the aroma and freshest of coffee. Aww, the thrill of each morning getting to create the taste of the day, slowly pressing, releasing, enjoying. This continued until a personal espresso/coffee maker appeared in my life and left quite quickly as well.  Money was tight, so I bought a basic no thrills coffee maker; and my love of coffee subsided.

Then one day it was mentioned, “you need a Keurig.”  What is that? A quick zap and instance of a smart phone, and I was looking at pure delight.  I remember how excited I was when it was ordered, how long will it take to arrive and coming home to my surprise.  Yes, I enjoy this very much.  Love certain coffees that are offered, found myself with a reusable K cup and the enjoyment of grinding the whole beans of the moment, brewing the coffee and adding whatever almond, cashew or hazelnut milk that I have on hand. To sit and enjoy a wonderful cup of coffee.

In truth, I’ve spoken of coffee; yet, this has readings between the lines.  Can you see them?  I have lived life in a hurried manner, rushing to what’s next, then slowing down enjoying my time and then taking off to speed up again.

My angels saying enough, “we can fly as fast as you speed, but are you truly living?”  Their brief warning of last week.  Slow down and take care of you, stop running around with your head chopped off.  I arrived home to a crow consuming a pigeon, well an eagle had decapitated it and the crow feasting on what was left.  I tried to see the symbolism in it all; my angels gently guiding me.  When did the message arrive, just this morning as I was brewing my coffee, and so thankful that I do not need to rush off to go stand in line.

My message as a tortoise. a sweet soul made a simple comment on my blog, Thanks Melissa for taking the time, arrived as of now, slow down, enjoy life, your soul needs nourished, you heart cherished. Love you, love you, love you for without love there is no you. I am love.

What am I off to do….not sure….moment to moment of love and self nourishment for now.

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings,
