Finding Our True Direction

Finding Our True Direction

Most folks call me Dr. Deb, but I’m really just a Deb. I am most comfortable in nature and love to learn about everything. I write, ponder, and dislike judgments of all kinds. They drive me crazy because they build barriers between people rather than respect and community.

As a child, I played in the dirt and drank water from rivers that contained small visible particles of decaying leaf matter, sand, a smidge of slime, and a big dose of healthy nourishment. Many mysterious things used to exist back then. It never harmed my tummy. In those times, it was called “wild water,” hence the name of this website.

I’d sit by the river and study how it forcefully tumbled and tossed its way around boulders and created angry foam along the edges. My soul would ride the water for a bit, and when I was thirsty, I drank from the river. It was an instinctual, visceral experience. That was my truth back then, in spite of the cruelty that existed in my life.

With time, you’ll learn a bit about the dark side of my life, as well as the beauty of my recovery and healing. I hold Doctoral Degrees in Natural Health and Traditional Naturopathy and a Bachelor of Science degree. I’m currently working on my first memoir titled “Silencing Echoes.” It is based on the parts of my life that deeply hurt me while teaching me the most.

Words, to me, are the “results” of experiences. They reach out from an unimaginably distant past to visit us in the present. They weave their way into the equally unimaginable distant future. That is where the forms and potentialities of thought grow beyond our just dreams. Words calm, words heal, and they can also harm with their power.

I believe each of us is gifted and able to discover the infinite power that lives within us – the source of our dreams, creativity, and self-identity that makes us each unique. By knowing we make our own choices, we also learn we are our own keeper, healer, judge, and advocate.

This entire website is about truth, nature, healing, and truth – sometimes in a bit of a “sassy pants way.”  Here you’ll learn about the various ways we can choose to naturally heal and sustain ourselves. You’ll find tons of wisdom and raw truths about how to live life while continually striving to survive. You’ll read posts about the authenticity and rawness of life we each hold deep in our hearts.  Ways to finally break free and speak up about how you feel. It’s where our hopes, dreams, hidden talents, and, most of all, the truth of where humanity may be headed. 

The picture to the right reflects the love, loss, and beauty of memories.  I’m the one in the middle, that’s my sister Vicki on the left and my sister Sandy on the right. Two columns of strength. They both left this world four months apart – Vicki in February and Sandy in June – 15 years ago this year. They still live in my heart with every breath I take.

Enjoy the site – please feel free to comment as often as you’d like – conversations always create stimulating connections that expand the mind and open the heart.

Dr. Deb
