Cosmo Sez...use your mind!

I recently had a life altering experience that has caused a major shift within the core of my being.

I don't think the details are as important as what the benefits that I received from the experience compel me to communicate to you all. Just know this, we are WAY more powerful and influential regarding what happens to us--and around us--than we realize!

Did you know that every thing created by man was preceded by a thought or an idea?

It just didn't happen by itself. Maybe there was some sort of inspiration but, nonetheless, the thought happened. Next, it was up to the people who had the thought to either act on it or chuck it into the bottom drawer of the desk to mull over 20 years later when it's too late to do anything about it. Our lives are like that, whether we are aware of it or not.

What's happening in your life right now? Are things the way you want them to be or are you just living someone else's life until you stumble across one that you like? Guess what?

You can't find true contentment without getting involved, especially starting with the thought process. It just doesn't happen that way. We have to be pro-active in this process.

Did you know that you could make your life everything that you want it to be? You may be asking yourself, "How the hell can I do that, Einstein?"

Well, we are powerful entities that can cause things to manifest, starting with the power of our thoughts and how we learn to focus those thoughts into becoming the reality that we want to create for ourselves. It is completely feasible. Did you know that a positive and negative thought cannot exist in the same space and that like-energy attracts like-energy?

When we have these thoughts, they put out a frequency to the world and, yes, the universe. This attracts back to us (the source) like energy.

So, if your life sucks, I must ask you..."What are your daily thoughts?" It's the law of attraction. We create it. We are the source and it starts with the way we are programmed to think. Have you ever been in a room of people and all of a sudden someone new walks in and the whole vibration of the room changes from their energy?

There's a reason. It could be negative or positive. The funny thing about negative thinkers is that most of them don't really realize they are thinking negatively.

Maybe it satisfies some emotional dysfunction or life-pattern they can't seem to break. These people need to be told the truth. That's what real friends are for! I guarantee that the positive people in this world are that way for a reason. Most of the positive people I have met, oddly enough, have been through a life-altering experience--usually somewhat painful--that clarified their priorities and purpose here on earth. There's nothing that will wake you up quicker than a serious issue to deal with.

Well, I gotta go for now, but I want you all to know that I love you, even if I don't know you. Please, take a risk and email me some of the experiences that have changed your lives. This is how we learn: from each other.

I'm here, just trying to make a difference.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
