Feel free to check out my new Dr. Sam web site. There are a bunch of articles I wrote and some interesting news. Check out my article on "What is a Healthy Person" or the one titled, "How to Spot a Narcissist." There is a fascinating article/documentary news item called, "Mindshock: Transplanting Memories?" It has a four part documentary you can click on. The documentary deals with cellular memory evidenced via heart transplants. Those receiving heart transplants experiencing the memories, emotions, and tastes of those who donated the heart. One blue-collar worker with little education suddenly became a poet. Check it out.

People repeat behavior, even that which doesn’t work, because it offers security and familiarity. Doing the same thing results in a known outcome; predictability masquerades as effectiveness. When you move beyond a familiar pattern, you may experience anxiety.
Repetition reinstates the security of the familiar, even if the repetition is limiting or frustrating. By opting for repetition, people sabotage invention and imprison creativity. Stuck behavior has stuck consequences. Staying in a rut long enough begins to seem like fate. That outlook can lead to despair. The ultimate question about fixed beliefs or “stuckness” is: Does it work?

Change may be difficult, but it begins with the easy recognition that you are the author of your own life story. Insight, understanding, and theory do not create change. New theories alone will not drive old lived experiences into extinction. Lasting change requires new lived experiences to replace old experiences – you invested a lot of years in the old system, and you will have to practice the new stuff as hard as you practiced the old stuff.
4 BASIC TESTS FOR CHANGE
1. What do you want to change?
2. What do you want to outgrow?
3. What do you want to avoid?
4. What do you want to enhance?

Deb and I have been going through our own storm for about 2 years ... and I can affirm that we have felt the father holding us close to his heart, telling us that he loves us, and that we are going to make...he will carry us through!

As I ponder what to wish you all during this festive season, I decided to wish you no less than what I wish for myself and those in similar life’s journey. With some seriousness and some tongue in cheek I wish that this next year you:
- Escape The Matrix with its illusions, lies, and games (Christian and other).
- Be able to go very deep into the soul and deal with those demons of denial that create guilt, despair, anger, depression, and even disease until…
- The soul is bare and naked before God, stripped of its narcissistic armor and false persona ready to…
- Receive healing, grace, and joy that lets us…
- Experience the lightness of liberation and freedom to be the real us without the need to wear disguises and masks.
Free as a bird… No more hiding…
We can then walk in the very presence of God without obstruction enveloped in the stillness of His love. All inner noise turned off as you watch God.Dr. Sam
