Why It's Important To Speak Your Truth

Are You Feeling Your Voice Is Being Blocked?

Now, more than ever, it's important to find the courage to speak out. Every time you speak your truth, you make it safe for others to do so as well. The world is constantly changing, and although embracing the direction it's going is extremely important, we must never forget how important it is for all of us not to feel censored, but to feel free.

First: Love What Is

Let's first take a look at reality. Breathe in for 5 beats, hold for 5 beats, breathe out for 5. Our perception of reality depends on the information we have been taking in regarding it, PLUS beliefs we hold that were made from our own life experiences. 

Therefore, it's safe to say that there are unlimited perceptions of reality. But no matter what your perspective, if you are holding resistance to that reality, you will feel pain. The first step in healing that pain is to accept what is going on, and find some way to be in harmony with it. See reality as it is, and...

How to Create Change Without Adverse Results (3 Easy Steps)

Recall a time in your business or life where you chose to implement a change, and some people did not take it well. Maybe they left the company or became disengaged. Worse, maybe they tried to sabotage you. What causes this adverse result and how do we fix it?

People handle change differently: they can run the gamut from those who tend to be comfortable with the status quo, and those who like to disrupt old processes and create change. And in the middle of these two are pragmatists who look at the situation from a more objective standpoint.

The secret is that anyone can just as easily be open to change if you do it right. Think about it: Anyone will be on board with change if it’s a change they choose to do rather than change done to them.

So how do we manage the situation of implementing change that others don’t choose? Well, we turn it into a change that they choose to do. Here are 3 simple steps to do so:

 

1) Add Massive Value First

How To Heal From News & Social Media Burnout in 7 Easy Steps

The year of 2020 has been full of surprises and devastation:  massive Australian and Brazilian forest fires, the death of Kobe Bryant, a global pandemic, protests to end racism in the world, and many other emotionally charged events. It's enough to give even the calmest of us a reason to constantly be connected to news and social media.

With emotional topics come journalism that is especially leaning toward one side or another. Watching your friends post divisive articles or having animated conversations, arguments or even friendship-ending fights is especially draining for Empaths & highly sensitive people.

Constant connection to these types of news can definitely take a negative toll on your mental health. Not only that, but the anxiety and energy drain can initiate a downward spiral that prevents you from making the conscious brain and personal connections you need to facilitate positive change in the world. This is a prime time for change, and as Empaths, we need...

The Psychology of Not Wearing or Wearing Masks During Pandemic

 

Ever wonder why some people are vehemently opposed to wearing masks and quarantining, while some are insisting they be worn for the good of the group? Ever wonder why some people are prone to the propaganda of people taking their freedoms away and some are prone to the propaganda of following established social norms?

It turns out that it's not about conspiracy theories, fear, or fake news (although these things come as a result of it); it's really about the predominant psychological temperaments of 2 different groups. The issue of whether or not to wear a mask in society is likely based on whether a person's dominant temperament is affiliative or pragmatic. Read below to see what this means.

Affiliatives vs. Pragmatics

According to depth psychology and Dr. Linda Bairnes, there are 2 different groups of people -- the AFFILIATIVES and the PRAGMATICS. 

AFFILIATIVES (55% of people)

  • are focused on the needs of the group rather than the self
  • they check in with social norms &...

5 Unusual but Transformative Ways to Work From Home (THIS MAY CHANGE YOUR LIFE!)


By: Contributing Writer

For some office workers, this is their first time working from home. The strange combination of working a corporate job from home can be a shock to most. I can relate. Having been in a corporate environment all of my work life, I can say the difference is stark. However, even if I’ve worked in a conservative field like finance for most of my life, I went home to study martial arts, yoga/pilates, psychology, and various contemplative arts.

With the knowledge gained from all those areas, I want to share 5 unusual ways that helped me conquer working from home. You will probably not see these in any other article, but they are nonetheless deeply transformative and may change your life.

How To Create Healthy Food Options (Vegan, Vegetarian, Pescatarian) In A Quarantine

Quarantine situations can make it hard to get not only variety but also access to fresh produce we once freely enjoyed.  An Empath knows how important it is to keep our minds and bodies as clear with natural, wholesome foods. However, there are few ideas out there for eating right and well in a quarantine. 

So we pulled together all you need to know on how to get the most cost-effective, least processed, healthy food when you're not allowed to leave the house. Some of these will be vegan options, others vegetarian, and others will include fish or chicken. Read on below to see some general tips and food combinations to prepare for months of quarantine. 

Top 10 Pieces of General Advice Before You Go Shopping

  1. Flash-frozen foods, such as vegetables, fish, and fruits hold much of their original nutrients. They also last for many months in the freezer. They are also relatively cost-effective.

Social Distancing For Empaths & Introverts - What You Should Know

Social Distancing For Empaths, Introverts & HSPs -- What You Should Know

In light of current events, the world today seems as if it was mysteriously flipped upside down from a completely extroverted one, into a profoundly introverted one. For the most part, extroverts are now experiencing that same draining discomfort, frustration, and anxiety that introverts endure every other day of their entire lives.

However, this is more than just a serendipitous switch out of extroversion, it's a manic thrust into introversion: people are being quarantined, unable to go out to clubs, bars, restaurants, religious gatherings, and other social gatherings. People have no choice but to stay inside their homes, the lucky working from home, and the others fighting to keep their jobs or to rescue and care for people who need it most. 

 

A Much Needed Rest

Amid all the cancelations, unexpectedly, it has shown most of the world how overburdened and overworked we all are....

A Surprising Cure For Stress & Overwhelm

By: Contributing Writer

Have you left your keys in the fridge lately? I don't know about you, but 2020 started out with a bang. It may only be February but it feels like I've done half a year of work already.

Lately, I've been acutely aware of how stress impacts our lives and our work. A different part of us shows up when under stress, and this part is seriously stunted in making the right decisions and being effective. Not only that, but it harms the people around us, by the dense "moods" we inhabit.

Find The Traumatic Event

What I've found is that if we are extremely aware of ourselves, there is often a triggering emotionally traumatic event that causes the shift between the part of us who operates in normal stressful environments and the part of us who operate in a state of overwhelm. That straw that breaks the camel's back.

A triggering event can be a sudden pile on of work, facing intense pressure from many sides, or not being able to complete an important task due to many...

How To Tell If You're Working For A Narcissist

The quickest way to tell if you are working for a Narcissist is to pay attention to how they use rules and moral laws. 

A company has certain rules and laws they uphold to make things fair, whether they believe in them or not. Sometimes, there are regulations imposed on them to put people on equal footing. 

What we've found to be a key indicator of narcissism, and if you have a narcissistic boss, is their intentions with using the rules:

  • Do they have the outward appearance of following the rules, but internally, they are using the rules to get what they want?
  • Are they manipulating data to get the result they want?
  • What is their driving intention towards interacting with the rules?
  • Are they operating secretly, behind the scenes to set up an appearance of following the rules, or to move forward with a personal plan?
  • Are you pressured to collaborate with them under urgent circumstances?

All these signs are red flags that you are working for a narcissistic boss. 

Now,...
