The You-man Being in the World

Self expression…ahh the freedom, possibility and beauty. There are so many ways to express yourself, and they vary from being among company to being in solitude. As a believer in collective consciousness, individuality is fascinating to me. Because people are attracted to different colors, styles, genres, and other people, we see how the human experienceContinue reading “The You-man Being in the World”

When Silence is Too Loud

When silence is too loud one of two things happens, inner peace or turmoil. I often equate silence with stillness maybe because they can be found in the same voids absent of sound or motion. In this sense, I wonder if either can truly be achieved. With the constant vibrations of energy on a planetContinue reading “When Silence is Too Loud”

Ode to Poetry

This is my letter to the World That never wrote to Me— Emily Dickinson April is National Poetry Month! Let’s celebrate! Poetry is beautiful, tragic, raw human emotion. Poetry is power and vulnerability. If you watched the recent US presidential inauguration in January, Amanda Gorman completely captivated the world with her poem “The Hills WeContinue reading “Ode to Poetry”

Energy Creation

Earlier this week I highlighted on social media the concept of Masculine and Feminine energies and how it is not tied to our constructs of gender. There are certain designated characteristics that are associated with each, though it is important for each one of us to have a balance of both. In some cultures theContinue reading “Energy Creation”

Can Compassion Be Taught?

I’m not convinced that compassion is as abundant as kindness or love. At least, compassion isn’t as easily recognizable as kindness and love. We can name thousands of different acts of kindness, but compassion seems to be more like the quiet introvert of characteristics. How exactly is compassion expressed? If I had to guess I’dContinue reading “Can Compassion Be Taught?”

Body Language: Expressing the Unsaid

Either consciously or subconsciously our bodies express so much, often what we do not speak. It shows feelings, thoughts, personality traits, moods, and habits. Sometimes the way we hold our bodies reflects how we see ourselves or displays the subtleties of how we self-comfort. When we begin to notice the physical presence of ourselves andContinue reading “Body Language: Expressing the Unsaid”

6 Ways to Learn a Language on Your Own

If you’re like me, I had a long list of potential accomplishments while in quarantine. Learning another language was on it. I took nearly 6 years of Spanish in school, but as a soft-spoken teen living in New England, no practice means it didn’t stick. To make up for those 6 years, I’ve come upContinue reading “6 Ways to Learn a Language on Your Own”

Human Awakening

Have you ever had a sensational experience that seemed to transcend your typical state of mind? If yes, no, you’re not sure, this is all for you! It is an amazing, under-discussed topic that is ultimately about the transformation of perception.

Trust, An Unsung Gift

Trust is interesting to me because of all of the ways it’s represented. Sometimes it is established clearly and explicitly by giving word or with a contract. It’s also exchanged between bodies like through eye contact, handshakes, pinkie promises, even the perfect execution of a lift as seen in Dirty Dancing. When I think ofContinue reading “Trust, An Unsung Gift”

Attracting and Expressing Love

There are probably thousands of ways to express love. It is a language like any other that holds passion behind it, ambiguity, vulnerability, cliches, all of communicative components. As Oliver Twist eloquently asked, “Where is love?” How do we know it’s all around? It’s in pop songs and poetry, novels and fairytales, dramas and tragedies,Continue reading “Attracting and Expressing Love”
