Ask Loria: Who is Loria?

1

I am a forty-four year old single mother, who decided to pursue a degree in Forensic Psychology. I served for four years in the United States Air Force and was a participant in the Gulf War. After coming home from the military, I was a changed woman. I joined the Air Force a happy seventeen year old young lady, but I returned a confused, angry, and depressed twenty-one year old. I attempted college right away but the depressing and nightmares were too debilitating. I went to many different counselors but to no avail, I was not any better. I worked several jobs, got married, still no change. I was so severely depressed I found myself in a hotel room questioning if I wanted to live. I decided that I was going to end my life. As a long time Christian I did the only thing I knew to do without second thought: pray. I had an epiphany. There was a movie of my life right before my eyes. I saw the choice I made and how I was affected. I realized that my life was a direct product of my poor choices and negative thoughts. At that moment I coined a phrase that will be my mantra for the rest of my beautiful life: “These seeds you sow today will be the trees that shade your tomorrow”.

After my mental resurrection, I started devouring self-help and metaphysical books. Every book I could get my hands on! I read books on the brain and how your thoughts have a direct impact on your physical and emotional well-being. I read books on positive thinking by authors like Prentice Mulford, Neville Goddard, Earl Nightingale, and a host of others. I decided that I was going to take control of my life by taking control of my mind. I realized that I went thought the valley of dry bones so that I could help others get through their journey. I decided to dedicate my life to the practice of loving myself and helping others see their true selves.

I am a certified life coach. I have several clients that I coach on a regular basis. I have worked on several documentaries with people in impoverished communities. I am a Chaplain assistant at a prison in North jersey and I do volunteer work at a treatment program. I recently had the opportunity to work on a reality show with Wayne Morris, lead singer from the group Boys to Men. By no means do I pose as a doctor; I only tell my clients what I have learned from personal experience and mentoring I received from psychologist and metaphysicians.

I am happy to join the Gleaner and to offer out readers and my school community relief in times of stress. Ask away and bring me any problem you face. I hope to help you acknowledge the answers that are already within you. While you see validation or confirmation from me in this column, remember that this is a step towards affirming your own ability to shape your world.

Be it taboo, uncomfortable, disheartening or embarrassing; reach out to me, Ask Loria, so I can help you sow the good seeds of today.

Share.

  1. HI: LORIA

    I AM A GRANDFATHER AND HAVE TWO GRANDCHILDREN.I LEARNED THAT FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE RICE HAS BEEN DENIED TO SPEAK AT RUTGERS. I HAVE THREE CHILDREN WHO ATTENDED ST JOHN’S UNIVERSITY.I TAUGHT THEM TO RESPECT ALL POLITICAL OPINIONS. RICE IS A BLACK WOMAN WHO WAS BORN IN THE SOUTH AND RAISED HERSELF TO A HIGH POSITION IN LIFE. IT IS A DISGRACE THAT RUTGERS WILL NOT LET HER SPEAK AT RUTGERS. WE COMPLAINT ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON IN RUSSIA BUT ARE WE ANY BETTER. THE STUDENTS AT RUTGERS SHOULD BE OPEN TO ALL POLITICAL OPINIONS.THE STUDENT SHOULD STAND UP AND TELL RUTGERS OFFICIALS TO ALLOW RICE TO SPEAK OR MAYBE WE WILL BECOME RUSSIA AND YOU WIIL NOT HAVE A VOICE.
