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”

Stepping into Your Higher Self

Methods of “stepping into your higher self” are advertised by life coaches, influencers, therapists, etc. What does it actually mean? Are we otherwise living “low” lives? I’ll first explain the appeal, then I will outline some suggestions that have worked/are working for me, and lastly why these suggestions can actually be effective.  The idea ofContinue reading “Stepping into Your Higher Self”

Religion, Superstition, and Numinous Experiences

Religion is a charged topic for many of us. Worship, ritualistic practices, and belief systems date far back to early human history, and we carry its weight to our present day. Religion embeds itself in culture and lifestyle, and it impacts government and politics despite efforts to separate them. It has notoriously pushed back onContinue reading “Religion, Superstition, and Numinous Experiences”

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. However, it’s difficult toContinue reading “Develop Your Own Embodiment and Spirituality”

So far, you can read about the chakra basics and the throat chakra here, heart here, sacral here, and root here.

Can Personal Growth Be Reversed?

So often when we talk about growth it’s about progress. It’s cycles, restarting, letting go, living, learning. But like other life maintenance, what happens when we feel stuck, burnt out, or as though we are reverting back to old ways? Can growth be reversed?  One of the most discouraging experiences for me is when IContinue reading “Can Personal Growth Be Reversed?”

Tips for a ‘New You’ and Review

The end of a calendar year is typically chaotic. The indulgence and celebrations make January 1st more appealing for cleansing and starting fresh. It’s for hope, redemption, and resolutions. There are other points in the year that are also optimal opportunities for kick-starting the “new you.” As mentioned in Global Winter Light Traditions, the solsticeContinue reading “Tips for a ‘New You’ and Review”

The Uncertainty of Emerging Adulthood

You know when Britney sang I’m not a girl, not yet a woman? The song felt really relatable as an adolescent, but I’m convinced (and slightly concerned) its relatability has extended. There is a fairly new term that categorizes the age range of 18-25 year-olds called “emerging adults.” The attributes of emerging adults seem toContinue reading “The Uncertainty of Emerging Adulthood”
