Are You Really Listening? 4 Ways to Understand and Connect with People

16.04.2018 in Empowerment, Life Skills, Personal Development

By 

“The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and be understood. The best way to understand people is to listen to them.” ~Ralph G. Nichols

 

My partner and I were in our first few months of a long-distance relationship. This was a new stage for us and it meant altering our communication practices. Instead of sharing meals and museum exhibits, we had weekly emails and Skype chats.

Every week, I would pour my heart into long, detailed emails to him. I would describe everything that I had done and thought over the past few days.

8 Quick and Easy Meditation Techniques to Calm Your Anxious Mind

04.04.2018 in Empowerment, Life Path, Life Skills, Psychics, Spirituality, Stress Management

By 

Have you ever found it hard to motivate yourself to do something that was good for you, only to eventually do it, feel amazing, and wonder why you waited so long?

That’s what meditating was like for me. Even though I knew I could do it for only five minutes each day to feel calmer, less stressed, and more present, I found excuses not to do it regularly for years.

I’d tell myself five minutes wasn’t enough; I really needed thirty or more, and I didn’t have that time,

You Are Not Responsible for Anyone Else’s Emotions

04.04.2018 in Empowerment, Gratitude, Healing, Life Path, Life Skills, Personal Development, Positive Thinking, Spirituality, Stress Management

By 

“Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them.” ~Eckhart Tolle

“I don’t believe you,” I jutted out my chin like a petulant toddler. Collapsing back into the tufted leather loveseat, I conceded, “I want to believe you, but I can’t.”

My therapist had just explained to me that I am not responsible for regulating other people’s emotions. My mind couldn’t process this truth.

There were too many decades of owning the moods of those around me.

In my younger years, if a parent was stressed,

3 Steps To Remove The Clutter From Your Life

04.04.2018 in Addiction, Empowerment, Gratitude, Life Path, Life Skills, Personal Development, Positive Thinking, Spirituality, Stress Management

By Advisor Jessica

Hello my name is Jessica. I have taken a clutter coaching course that helps you with your relationships, work environment, and so much more. I can help you understand what needs to be removed – almost like Feng Shui. Feng Shui is a Chinese form of balancing out energies which could be in a room, where you move things in angles and positions to regain balance. And also be more grounded. Also removing clutter helps the chakras and meditation.

When you de clutter a room or even space you make sure everything is put in the right place and everything should be spaced out.

The Problem with Forgiveness and What I Now Do Instead

19.03.2018 in Empowerment, Healing, Life Skills, Personal Development, Self Love, Stress Management

By 

“Change is the end result of all true learning.” ~Leo Buscaglia

I cringe writing this. I have eaten so much humble pie that my pants don’t fit. This was a really hard lesson to learn.

I had a forgiveness problem.

When I was a kid, I learned to say sorry when I messed up and forgive other people when they did. With three sisters all two years apart, I got plenty of practice in as a kid (we all did).

It was a pretty standard routine:

  1. Someone would mess up—say something horrible,

If Only I Knew My Worth…

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” ~Albert Einstein

Looking back on my past, I see that I have spent most of my precious time striving to improve myself instead of celebrating the very gift of being alive and healthy. For many years, I though I wasn’t good enough, and perfection was my worst enemy.

I considered myself pretty but not beautiful, somewhat smart but not truly intelligent.

3 Things That Cause Unhealthy Food Cravings & How to Stop Them

06.03.2018 in Empowerment, Life Skills, Personal Development

By 

“Reminder: food is fuel, not therapy.” ~Unknown

I learned about food cravings at a young age.

My parents divorced when I was six years old. My older brother and I ended up living in another city with our grandmother. We used to spend long hours alone, and we learned soon enough how food could help us lift our mood and suppress our real feelings.

That was when I started having unstoppable food cravings.

Eating would make me feel good and bring me peace and calm. Trying to avoid my favorite foods would make me nervous and unsettled,

How to Keep Your Marriage or Relationship Strong and Beat the Statistics

05.03.2018 in Life Skills, Love, Relationships, Soulmate

By Marwan Jamal

“Good relationships don’t just happen. They take time, patience, and two people who truly want to be together.” ~Unknown

You can`t take it anymore. Life’s getting boring, you fight over everything, your relationship has lost its spark, and you can’t look each other in the eye without feeling regret. Many marriages and relationships get to this place eventually.

According to recent surveys, one of every two American couples gets a divorce. This means you only have a 50 percent chance at making your relationship work, no matter how well it began.

What to Do When You Want to Feel Closer to Your Partner

28.02.2018 in Life Skills, Love, Relationships, Soulmate

By 

“By letting our deep longing for love and connectedness be exposed…[we are] opening up the channel through which love can enter.” ~John Welwood

When we feel disconnected from our romantic partner what we often want most is to genuinely feel their love again, to feel connected. And yet, it can be so difficult to simply share that longing.

So instead of explaining or asking for what we want in a loving way, we complain about what is wrong, about how our partner isn’t showing up for us. Or we simply withdraw.

What Annoys Us About Others Can Teach Us About Ourselves

28.02.2018 in Empowerment, Health, Life Path, Life Skills, Personal Development

By José de la Torre

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” ~Carl Jung

When my wife and I had children, little did we know that we’d be creating little bundles of nerves. Between my wife’s depression and my own anxiety, we created two anxiety-ridden, depressed balls of mess, and then some.

Don’t get me wrong, we love our two girls to death, and we are very proud of them. They are both very strong and beautiful young ladies. Occasionally we like hanging out with them too.

While the two girls have similar interests,
