Have you ever experienced standing amid a raging storm, an emotional storm that is? How did you find the calm space in your mind and stepped outside of that emotional tornado? How can we have better reactions to the events in our life that we can't control? How do we stop being emotionally allergic to everything?
What does it mean to be free? How do we find our path towards inner freedom? Imagine yourself on a private Mediterranean beach, with the warm sun suspended high in the sky. The only way to the beach is a tricky yet rewarding walk, straight down a cliff. Once you arrive, the sand in between your toes reminds you that here you don’t have to act or look a certain way. With every layer of clothes you take off, every expectation or pressure you’ve ever felt comes off too! Free to lay down or dance, play in the water or soak up sun rays. You can laugh, scream, sing, or swoon; the choice is yours. Entirely free to be yourself!
Have you ever heard about the fantastic benefits of drinking cacao? What if we told you that drinking this warm, concentrated chocolate cacao drink could help you with bringing about inner awakening? What if we said that drinking cacao could creatively guide you through life, it could help you release all that pent-up negative energy and start the healing process, would you decline the invitation? Perhaps not. For the taste alone, most of us would be willing to give it a go, if not for the mood-enhancing benefits caused by the rush of serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins triggered by the consumption of chocolate.
The challenge is: we don’t know how to talk about what we need very well. Especially when it comes to situations where emotions are high, there’s a lot at stake, and it would be a lot easier just to avoid things altogether. That means most of our relationships are not prepared to last.
We've all been there when our parents would say or do something that hurt our feelings. But do our parents mean those hurtful things they say? One thing for sure is that being a good parent means always protecting your kids from harm and the last person that should hurt you, is your parent. But it happens sometimes, unfortunately. And here's something that you CAN do about it.
You want to feel needed, wanted and loved. You crave that special someone's touch, kiss, and affection hoping that they will love you back as much as you do. And that’s perfectly natural. But what happens when you are in the wrong relationship when everything you do is to please your partner?
“Just get over it already!” “The past is gone!” “Move on!” All the well-wishers might offer you their best advice, but their words hurt. How so? Because the past still haunts you every moment of each day. Are new beginnings even possible?! Is healing could be real when the hurt runs deep? Can we confidently release the pain from the past once and for all and embrace the future? How do we find the strength to “press on”?
Grief becomes a scar on the part of our soul that survives. In a lot of cases, we will probably never completely get over the loss of this person. But there might be elements of good news in that loss. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals correctly—it still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.
I was forced to grow up before my time, facing my fears and tragedies head on. Diving deep into my faith was the only answer. Read about what helped me heal my broken heart and can help you too.
It still hurts to not be fully excepted by my own mother, but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve decided to make peace with those feelings. I’ve come to realize that my mother’s dissatisfaction with me isn’t my fault, and if someone is on a mission to be disappointed, they will be—no matter what I do.
Sometimes we all wish for a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to relationships, especially when difficulties arise from time to time. We are different, we come from all walks of life... and we all build our relationships differently. Nothing is identical. But it was my observation lately that there is one thing that probably can help us all in creating amazing love life.
