Forbidden Emotions: The Key to Healing by Marti Murphy, Published by JEBWizard Publishing
Amazon Author Page:

Marti Murphy is an Emotional Fitness Coach, Certified EFT Practitioner, and Psychosomatics Practitioner (Body/Mind Connection).
Marti has been a life-long spiritual junkie, but nothing worked until she identified her forbidden emotions.
She was exhausting herself “trying” to think positive, under highly stressful financial circumstances, and it wasn’t working. When she gave up “trying” to change, she accessed her forbidden emotions. Forbidden emotions that were attached to her most negative thoughts.
As she gave these emotions full expression, she felt better without “trying” to think positive, and her life changed for the better.
She now specializes in helping her clients resolve conflicts in their personal and business lives, opening their eyes to their forbidden emotions. This helps allow guidance and direction to come through, creating inspired action. As this happens, life unfolds with more grace and ease.

Where were you born?

 St. Louis, MO

When did you decide to write Forbidden Emotions: The Key to Healing?

The idea came to me about eight years ago and the more I worked with clients and did my own inner work, the more I started to see that the golden thread was suppressed emotions. Making ourselves wrong for feeling many of the emotions we feel.

What do you hope to accomplish with the book?

To raise awareness of what keeps us stuck in a cycle of failing or not being able to move forward despite our desire to do so. To help people find relief from self-judgment and learn to embrace this amazing palette of emotions we all came install with. To realize there are no wrong or bad emotions, there are just emotions that are intended to be felt. And to find the liberation and healing that comes from feeling fully.

Who should read the book? Who would you like to see read the book?

ANYONE that’s ever made themself wrong for who they are and how they feel and for not believing that are “succeeding” in life in the worldly way, we’re taught to believe we should succeed.

Do you have plans for another book?

Yes, for sure. The next book dives deeper into rekindling our connection to God, The Great Spirit, the Authentic Self, Fred Flinstone, The Dinosaurs or whatever you wish you call it.

What books are you reading now?

Outrageous Openness
A Course in Miracles Workbook
Everything is Here to Help You

Anything else you’d like to say to people reading this?

Yes, that there’s nothing wrong with you. That allowing yourself your unadulterated, unedited truth, in a safe and healthy way has the power to liberate you to learn to accept and even love ALL of you. Especially in the places you’ve judged yourself the most.

But I Thought This Was a Christian Nation?

(Reposted from October 2016. One of the candidates referred to has now become President, the other is just a convenient dead horse her opponents like to beat.  The issues I pointed out back then have not just come to pass, they have grown and expanded.)

So once again I ask, But I thought this was a Christian nation?


If this is indeed a Christian nation, wouldn’t that imply we have God on our side? Aren’t those words an inference of our superiority because of this religious faith?

Yet, upon examination, what do we find?

Politicians spend their time and taxpayer money trying to control panhandling by the homeless. They spend no time finding solutions to the underlying problem.

But I thought this was a Christian nation?

We consider the poor to be the problem rather than a symptom of the problem.

But I thought this was a Christian nation?

Candidates propose closing borders.  They would expel innocent children because their parents sought a better life here. They support blocking entry based on religion or place of birth.

But I thought this was a Christian nation?

Admittedly, I am not up to date on the latest Catholic Christian doctrine. But, as best I understood it, marriage was for better or worse. Created by God and not for man to put asunder. One candidate has tried three times and another stayed in one marriage. Yet, for many, the choice is clear.

But I thought this was a Christian nation?

Is not the saying, “Judge not lest ye be judged?”, part of this Christian philosophy?

But I thought this was a Christian nation?

We talk of destroying a civilization based on differences and misunderstandings. We would kill others since they worship a different God.

But I thought this was a Christian nation?

Many would embrace the call for a new crusade. Echoing the words of Pope Urban in calling for the first crusade;

O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

But I thought this was a Christian nation?

We consider the assassination of a candidate as a viable solution to political differences.

But I thought this was a Christian nation?

We are among an exclusive group of nations. China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, North Korea, and the USA that all practice executions.

But I thought this was a Christian nation?

We are number two in the world in incarceration rates. (Behind the Seychelles of all places?)

But I thought this was a Christian nation?

We are 37th in health care for our people according to the World Health Organization. (Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates take better care of their people.)

But I thought this was a Christian nation?

We are 29th in education in the world. Vietnam has a higher rated educational system.

But I thought this was a Christian nation?

We scream and yell that we are number one in the world. The best country in the world. Our enemies hate us because of our freedom. It is our Christian traditions that have made us what we are.

Is it?

Perhaps the end of times will come at our own hands. We may choose to launch our nuclear weapons against those with whom we disagree. After all, why have the weapons if you’re not going to use them?

But I thought this was a Christian nation?

Turns out, I may be right. I’m just not sure how it has helped us.
