Love Fluently

Let’s talk about love! There is a spiritual love phenomenon called Amigeist, a term coined by Dr. Jeffery Sundberg (2019). Broken down, ami is Latin for love and geist is German for spirit. In the field of Transpersonal Psychology, focus and interest is in human experience, particularly human spiritual experience. So, how is love aContinue reading “Love Fluently”

Part II of Que Sera, Sera

It had been over 2 years since I’d seen Dante. The more time that passed, the more I questioned its reality. It was difficult to tell whether my excitement from birthday texts, holiday wishes, and occasional voice messages to check-in faded with time. That first Christmas I scripted a minute -long voice message in SpanishContinue reading “Part II of Que Sera, Sera”

Friendship: An Analysis of Our Deep Bonds

This may sound a little weird, but when watching movies or reading books, friendship connections are more exciting and interesting to me than romance. I think a part of me has always desired, even valued friendships more. Instead of fawning over celebrity crushes in my prepubescent years, I’m certain I spent more time imagining whatContinue reading “Friendship: An Analysis of Our Deep Bonds”

Develop Your Own Embodiment and Spirituality

Within the spirituality, or some call it New Age, movement and communities there seems to be push and pull in opposite directions. From what I see in trends, people just discovering spiritual practices, concepts, and ideas have been blown away by transcendence and the potential of their own human consciousness experience.

One woman I met began in BelgiumContinue reading “From Sunrise to Siesta: A Piece of El Camino de Santiago”

Psychedelic Substances: An Evolutionary Medicine

There’s heavy stigma on psychedelic/hallucinogenic substances. I have little faith that this post will reverse the stigma (certainly not on a cultural level), and like other Live Fluently topics, I approach merely as a humble devil’s advocate. I write about what I’m learning and what I like to talk about. This topic is no exception.Continue reading “Psychedelic Substances: An Evolutionary Medicine”

Labyrinths: A Winding Road to Healing

Labyrinths are powerful ancient symbols, and if you’ve been following Live Fluently, you know that I love symbols. The purpose of this symbol, even more closely aligning with my interests and inspiring my extensive knowledge of it, is to represent a healing journey inward. Interestingly, the inner structure of the ear is called a labyrinth,Continue reading “Labyrinths: A Winding Road to Healing”

Your Blank Canvas: The True Power in the Creative Process

Do you ever notice a deep sense of connection from looking at an image, listening to a song, tasting homemade food, reading, or watching a film? Maybe if you’re an artist you’re familiar with a particular feeling in the creative process that is difficult to explain but happens from the moment you begin executing anContinue reading “Your Blank Canvas: The True Power in the Creative Process”
