What’s New in 2011

Posted by: Dr. Terrie Wurzbacher | Comments (0)

First of all, Happy New Year to everyone. I hope you spent some time (or will in the next few days) reflecting on what has happened in your life over the past year. This is so important. Although people focus on what they are going to do for the coming year, that’s often hard to do if you don’t know where you were a year ago and what happened to you during those 12 months.

I have some more information on that that I will share in the coming days but wanted to let you know what was going to be happening with Getting Unstuck, LLC in the near future.

We will be migrating to a new website soon. I think you’ll like it. It will be on a wordpress blog but that may be more technical information than you want to know :-)

We’ll also be having more than metaphysics available on Getting Unstuck, LLC. On our new site I will have recommendations for people who are interested in having businesses on the internet and all the aspects that need to be covered. I have studied this for over 4 years now and know that many of our subscribers want to “Get Unstuck” from more than just their spiritual life. I want variety and I want the opportunity to help people out there.

I will be creating a survey along those lines too.

I will be offering more products so that you can incorporate practical metaphysics into all aspects of your life.

There will be a new membership site coming called The Getting Unstuck Insider and it will be community based and be a private social gathering where you can share ideas and get your questions answered and help others deal with their issues. I am excited about this.

I think that’s it for now. Who knows what else will develop. Let me know what you’re interested in. Just go to the Contact page and email me with your thoughts and ideas.

Have a wonderful 2011 – here in the US it is the 10th year since we became acutely aware of the importance of freedom and this applies not just as a nation but personally as well. I am dedicated to helping you find that personal freedom.

You know, it’s amazing how your perspective changes – sometimes by the year and sometimes by the minute. I was a pretty happy camper yesterday because Jackie ate well and seemed to be doing fine even when I came home from work. But then after dinner she started having intestinal problems again – to the degree she’d had them a few weeks ago. In ONE minute, my entire mood and perspective changed.

But this time it was different than it was that first time. I mentioned Steve Sisgold in another post and he has to come up in this one too. When he was helping me through all this with Jackie he asked what had I gotten out of this and what gifts had I received. I was taken aback.  I thought ” how the heck could you possibly think of gifts at a time like this?”. But, since I know Steve is a very, very smart man, I didn’t say it. I let him go on when he realized I wasn’t sure what was going on.

  He told me that this would be a pretty rotten experience if I didn’t look at it and be thankful for the gifts that I had gotten – not only from life but from Jackie as well.  I did that. And this time, I just “felt” them instead of making a list of those gifts. Many of them you can’t list.

So, last night instead of decompensating like I did before, I thanked God for all the blessings I’ve received from Jackie in her 12 years (I’ve had her 10) and for all the blessings I’ve received not only from her but from my friends – friends like Heather Bestel who has a new product release (Magical Meditations 4 Kids) that I’m sure you’ll want to take a look at and I’m going to be writing about soon. She is so busy with her launch of this long awaited wonderful product BUT she took the time to reach out to me and support me through this entire event. Then there’s Steve Sisgold as I mentioned. There’s Susie, Joyce and so many other friends and colleagues at work that I’m overwhelmed by the love and caring they’ve all shown. They know that Jackie is really all I have left.

Take some time to look at all the gifts in your life – do it daily. When things seem to be going wrong even if it’s just a disagreement or perhaps a not-so-good encounter on the phone, stop for a few seconds and either go over in your mind or even just jot down FIVE gifts you’ve received – it doesn’t matter when you received them, just remember them and be thankful for them. Yes, this is like gratitude and there’s nothing wrong with it being like gratitude. But it’s more than that too.

Don’t wait to have to be hit over the head with a sledgehammer. Do it NOW.

Til we talk again later – please keep us in your thoughts and prayers

Where’s my food? As I’m still working with my doggie, Jackie, trying to nurse her back to health, I’ve realized that there are many things I’m doing differently in the last two weeks that just “isn’t me” – and it’s all because of Love.

So take some time today and ask yourself what you do, or even what you would do, for love? What would you do that takes you beyond where you are this minute.

Here’s some examples from my life:

I’m cooking for Jackie twice a day (granted it’s just boiled lamb or hamburger but it requires extra time and effort). Anyone who knows me knows that that’s just amazing because I am NOT a cook.

I’m not staying late at work to “catch up” nor am I going to work early to “get ahead”. I’m spending as much time with her as possible.

I’m taking her for at least one walk a day and sometimes two. As soon as we get up at 4 a.m. we’re out the door. She has a doggy door so I don’t NEED to do that but it’s something she enjoys.

I’m essentially living at the grocery store (not really). I would go to the grocery store once a week or once every two weeks before – probably because I don’t cook..ha ha…but now I’m going almost every day to get something different (whe I was trying to find what she’d eat) or to stock up on what works. This takes alot of time too.

I’m having to say “no” to things that I know would be bad for her – her biscuits for example. That’s hard.

I’m taking time off work to take her to the Vet. I don’t even care if it’s in the middle of the day.

You see, my priorities have changed even though she should have been my first priority all along. And as such, my activities have changed.

What do you do for love? Answer that question and examine what love is all about. I’m finding out more and more each day. I hope this helps you find out too.

So, do you believe in psychosomatic illness?

I do and I will tell you why……

There are many definitions of “psychosomatic” but the origin is from  
-  “psyche” – of the mind
-  “soma” – of the body

Here’s two definitions:
   1. Of or relating to a disorder having physical symptoms but originating from mental or emotional causes.
   2. Relating to or concerned with the influence of the mind on the body, especially with respect to disease.

Even way back in history people knew of the existence of diseases caused by (or influenced by) the mind.

As most of you know, I am a physician.

I had never heard of psychosomatic illness during my internship. We didn’t really study that in medical school (shame on us).

One of my month’s rotations was going to be on pediatrics. I was not fond of children at all (that’s putting it mildly). I also had been very healthy all my life. Well, all of a sudden I got a sinus infection (definitely unheard of in my life). Then the next thing you know I got pneumonia. How could I possibly be so sick? I wondered. I was so sick that I missed the first week of my pediatric rotation.

You know that expression “you can’t see the forest for the trees”. Well, that’s what happened to me. If you’ve ever heard about internships, there is no time to think at all. So, I just worked very hard at getting better so I didn’t get set back in my internship.

About 2 years later after I was “more” experienced and had begun to be exposed to metaphysics (although I didn’t really know it then), I realized that I created that pneumonia to avoid having to be on the pediatric rotation. I missed a week and that was pretty darn good.

I also know I had pneumonia another time (even though I can’t remember the exact specifics) which was definitely something I brought on myself. So, I took time to examine these two episodes and immediately realized how powerful the mind is.

Many patients I have come across or been involved with have resisted looking at any possible connection between their illnesses and their mind. It’s hard for me to understand and it’s even harder to try to treat someone with that resistance.

  In this day of instant gratification, we just “have to have” a cure right now. And when you have to look at the mind and emotional aspects of you and your illness, that takes much longer to treat than just “taking a bunch of pills”. But then I find it humorous because people complain about the cost of medicine and the bad effects of the medications – but these same people never want to look within themselves to find out what’s going on.

There is ALWAYS a connection between the mind and emotions and the body.

Take the time to be open to that idea and you’ll see so much more about yourself as soon as you open that door.

We’ll talk much more about this as the days and weeks go by.

 See you on the “Medicine & Metaphysics” teleseminar tonight!

10 Commandments of Health

Posted by: Dr. Terrie Wurzbacher | Comments (0)

This is from Donald Curtis “Human Problems and How to Solve Them”. It leads right into our teleseminar tomorrow on “Medicine & Metaphysics”.

1. Sleep every chance you get. Learn from your pets. When they have nothing to do they sleep. Thus, they are ready for anything because they are fresh and rested. Take “cat naps” several times during the day. The natural healing  forces of life take over when you go to sleep and stop resisting them. Find out how much sleep you need and make sure you get it.

2. Hang onto your temper. Anger destroys. Control your feelings.  Emotional outbursts are destructive. Forgive yourself. Get rid of resentment.

3. Never worry. You will never be confronted with a situation you are not capable of handling. Worry is bondage to the past or future. Forget the past. Plan for the future but don’t worry about it.

4. Learn to laugh.  Get happy inside and let the laughter come out of you. Why live unless you can have a good time doing it.

5. Organize your time and always give your best.  Stop running around in circles. Decide what you are going to do, set aside time for it, then go ahead and do it. Use your time constructively.

6. Eliminate harmful habits. This means all of them – mental, emotional and physical. They include sins of omission as well as commission.

7. Eat sensibly. Use moderation. Help your body maintain itself by finding out what it needs, then provide it in sensible quantity and with good quality.

8. Exercise regularly. Your body is meant to be used, so use it. You’ll feel better when you do. Get rid of your inner aggressions by finding some intensive physical exercise.

9. Love people. Get to know people. No one can live without love. We all have more love inside of us than we’ll ever use. The more love we give, the more returns to us. Understanding, interest, compassion, and empathy all produce health. Talk to people, encourage them. Give yourself to them. Help them.

10. Learn to pray.Prayer is affirmation. Prayer connects you with the source of life.  Prayer is participation in the creative process. Prayer is renewal. Prayer stimulates the flow of life through us.

Remember to tune into our teleseminar tomorrow at 6 PM central time.

You know – I realized that the perfect follow-on to my doggie saga would be a discussion about Gratitude and David Wilson’s comment below made me realize that I should have included it in my writing about Jackie. Gratitude is so important. Another one of my friends, Steve Sisgold, mentioned that I should be living in gratitude for Jackie, not just focusing on what my other vet advised (Steve was so good to me on Tuesday, letting me just cry). And I realized that I have a website in memory of Crystal and that I could just as easily create a blog to honor Jackie but not wait until she’s gone. And I will do that this weekend. I know it will be filled with the humor of Julia Child Wurzbacher who had to call her friends to learn how to boil potatoes – oh well….

But Gratitude is such an important part of success in life and since your relationships are part of life, the gratitude is vital there too.

Take a minute and ask yourself how you express your gratitude. That will force you to determine if you even feel gratitude and if you don’t, then that’s the starting place for you.

I have had many people reach out to me in the past two days because of this event. I was so touched. The folks at work are all dog lovers and they have reached out and allowed me to have a day and a half off. I needed to be with her (I spent most of yesterday either cooking and swearing as the water boiled over or trying to soothe her pain) and they allowed me that freedom. The people at both vets have been wonderfully supportive.

And most of all, I feel gratitude because of the fact that although Jackie is in pain and still has a long way to go until we control this (I’m thinking positively), I still have her. There are dogs at the specialty vet I go to that don’t have that hope and I watch the owners sit with them as the tears fall down their cheeks. I feel so much for these owners and wish I could do something to ease their pain or that of the dogs. I am grateful for what I have  and have had with Jackie. It’s hard to be grateful when she’s in pain but it’s the most important thing I can do.

You have to concentrate on gratitude every single day of your life.

  This is one of the reasons I created the Gratitude Journal for everyone. It’s up on the web and it’s free to download (it works on PCs only and at least works on Vista – not sure about  Windows 7 – would be glad for any feed back). Go try it out. It’s a daily journal and has a sticky for you to leave on your desktop and quickly jot down things as you think of them. Those items of gratitude are immediately transferred into your journal.

Have you hugged your Gratitude Journal yet today…Tell people you love them, tell them thanks, whatever you do, make sure you show your gratitude.

Thanks to all of you for your support and to David and Steve for bringing the Gratitude part home to me this week.

Me, My Dog & I

Posted by: Dr. Terrie Wurzbacher | Comments (6)

Crystal & Jackie   This week’s theme  has been about relationships. And although we don’t often think of the topic as referring to animals, that is one of the most important relationships we can have. For me, the last 10 years has been very special.

10 years ago after losing my two Siberian Huskies to age and illness, I agreed to serve as a “temporary” home (1-2 weeks) for two other Siberians that were two years old. Well, anyone who is a dog lover can figure out how that went.  After a week I was hooked. In fact, it was so eerie because these two seemed to take on the personalities of the two who had departed. Thus, although I had sworn not to do this, Crystal and Jackie entered my life.

I had no other family at that time (my brother didn’t re-enter the picture until 2005 or 2006) so these 2 year olds were my family. And they were just like any other two year olds. Rambunctious, always getting into trouble, but so very loving and lovable. When I had a bad day they would do their best to cheer me up and take care of me. And they did a very fine job of that!

The years pass so quickly when you have established a day to day routine. And our years did. Even when I retired and moved from Virginia to Texas and bought my current vehicle because it was “the one” that they would be able to travel the 1700 miles in, they were prominent in my thoughts. I would try to ease their anxiety when the house had so many people in it for my two garage sales and my friends helping to remove things so I could “downsize” for my move. Then there was the night the house was completely empty and we slept on the floor in sleeping bags. They were right there by my side.

They made it across the states better than I did although I was the one most excited. But they benefited when I got lost in a gigantic national park – we stopped and they got to investigate and were quite happy with all the smells.

Things weren’t so great when I first got here though. The fence that I had had put up allowed the neighboring dogs to growl through and I thought I was going to have to move. But I was able to have the fence fixed (most expensive fence in San Antonio I think).

Anyway, we got settled and the years went by. And as usual I took everything for granted even their love. They were the center of my attention but I am not sure that I showed them that enough.

Crystal Crystal was a trouble maker but she was always so proud of her trouble making – the birds she brought in and the possum she killed in the house. She just couldn’t understand why I wasn’t as ecstatic as she was. She chewed up my books, got things off the tables and counter and on and on. She was a 2 year old in an 11 year old body.

Then one day she started coughing. A week later she passed over the “rainbow bridge”. What a tumultuous week that was.

 When she left us, Jackie and I both were emotionally distraught. But we drew together. We walked Jackietogether, cried together and found a completely new relationship with one another.

I found that she was such a well behaved dog. I didn’t have to “doggy-proof” the house every time I left. I could leave doors open to the rooms, I didn’t have to worry that she’d eat my books – nothing. She was perfect. And I hadn’t known it all these years. I had not been able to see her for the two of them. So, I feel I hadn’t treated her the right way and I know I had not had the benefits of the fantastic relationship we’ve had this past year.

She’s been sick for the past 2 months and we’ve been trying to get a handle on it. But, Tuesday, my vet said she might have to be euthanized because she had stopped eating. I was simply crushed. Although I have seen her in such pain over the past two months, there have been great times too.

My emotions were mixed – did I want her to suffer any more? Could I stand to see her suffer any more? But then there was the selfish part of me that simply said “What am I going to do without her?” and that was when reality set in. I really have no family that’s close (my brother just came back into my life and there’s no one else). My neighbors and coworkers are very close but they have their own lives. Every single day for 10 years it’s been me and the girls or me and Jackie.

Wednesday fortunately, the specialist vet said he wasn’t ready to give up on her yet and wanted to try some other treatments. I was ecstatic. Especially since I got her to eat salmon and some boiled potatoes finally. We’re not out of the woods yet but I feel a whole lot better.

And I can tell you one thing. She is going to know that I love her every minute that I’m around her.

So what’s the point to all this? Take stock of your relationships. Are you neglecting to express your thoughts and feelings in any one of them “just because”? Don’t wait until it’s too late and then try to make up lost ground like I’m trying to do with Jackie.

Do it today. Take stock and ACT!
