The Cycle of the Moon


Some hundred years ago, we believed that the Moon played an important part in our lives. We once knew about its magnetic field and understood the power it exerts upon us. It was a time when nature was one of our best allies. We worked alongside and within its creation and that brought peace to the hearts of many past civilizations.

Shhh...It’s A Secret! Or Should It Be?


Most of us have some sort of secret being held hostage inside. And sure, keeping a surprise birthday secret is one thing, but when it comes to deeper issues, be it a health disorder, cheating on a lover or any other thing that causes embarrassment or concern, then letting it out is the only way forward. The reason people often keep things hidden is because they fear how others will react to their secret; being rejected, scorned or stigmatized does not help anyone work through a serious issue. Problem is, keeping secrets can be harmful to both our mental and physical health. It can really eat you up.

You know that moment when you're driving, or going about your day and you realize today is a good day? Or, you think about how things are finally going your way and you have this feeling of contentment, of satisfaction?

Communicating What You Want


From the Pueblos to Neuro Linguistic Programing (NLP), there are many schools of thought which teach that hoping for things is counterproductive. It’s suggested, admission that whatever you want is not already present actually makes it harder for it to become present. The doubt and fear included in hope actively fight against the underlying intent. Instead, imagine a reality where you have what you want. Make the reality as real and detailed as you can; let yourself emotionally, and sensationally feel how you would in that context. Then add a feeling of gratitude and appreciation to that moment.
