Improving Energy Sensing & Intuition

This is something I wrote for another blog with a completely different context and direction. I wasn’t sure if I should post this here. I spent some time considering the feedback I might get from this post and I realized I was dreading the exact type of energy that I’m trying to teach people and learn for myself, how to identify and steer clear of.

So here goes:

I’m sure you’ve all heard someone saying stuff like, “she has really positive vibes”, or “this place just has a bad energy” or anything along those lines. If you’ve ever wondered what on earth that means, or how in the world they’re sensing that, then this post is for you.

What do we mean when we say Negative or Positive Energy? Continue reading

On Being Compassionate at Work

Hey everyone. This post is dedicated to those who find it hard to remain compassionate to others when there is a lot of tension at work. If you’ve found yourself thinking about others as being very distant from you, or if you’ve been feeling cold toward your coworkers and even your loved ones, this is the post for you!

Personally, in times of struggle, what I try to do is focus and let go of my anger. I think that’s a normal thing people deal with. I want to make sure I can keep myself in check during those moments where too much is being asked of me and I feel like I’m about to snap.

Flight

“One of my cousins recently had to choose subjects for form 4. She really wanted to do Art and Music, she was pretty good in those two subjects but her parents strongly objected, so now she’s doing sciences…and absolutely hating it. Her parents meant well, but in the long run, did they really help her?”

Why do we continue to crush the spirits of children?

The San Paria Initiative

When I was younger I thought I could fly. I thought if I jumped high enough and flapped my arms fast enough, I could take flight and soar through the sky. I thought I could fly, until my parents told me I couldn’t, until the world told me I couldn’t.

When we were younger, we had such big dreams. We believed we were invincible and our desires reflected that. We had wings when we were small, and as we got older, the world gradually clipped more and more of those wings. I remember when I was a little girl, I wanted to be so many different things. I was a girly girl, so Barbie dolls were a staple. I used to make clothes for them, cut their hair and so, I wanted to be a fashion designer or a stylist (not sure if I knew what a stylist was, but…

Why I’m a feminist

What feminism is:

What feminism isn’t:

  • Hating men.
    That’s called misandry, and that’s definitely NOT what we’re about.
  • Hating women who want to stick to traditional feminine roles.
    Essentially, what we want is for women to be free to do what they like. If they want to be feminine, no problem. If they want to be involved in activities that are not usually considered feminine, no problem. This is about giving women the choice to be their true selves and not be deemed inferior to anyone else.
  • Ignoring the struggles faced by men.
    Hey guys, the patriarchy and toxic masculinity hurts you too.
