The mirror effect

Many will say that being an empath can be a blessing as well as a curse. I have written about it myself, sharing my experiences as an empath and it’s true that it’s not always easy.

I came to read about the mirror effect from the minds journal which describes it a little more. Their take is that an empath is a person who picks up on other people’s emotions and energy, hidden behaviors and true personality traits. Empath’s can take them on and project the emotions back to their rightful owner. This can be very intimidating for the owner leaving them feeling bare and exposed. The facade, the wall that was so carefully created to hide that true self weakens in the presence of an empath which can feel uncomfortable. Perhaps uncomfortable for both sides.

Empath’s can wear other people’s truth and energy just like a mask that they hide behind, even if the person is unaware of what they are projecting. Anything that is hidden and painful, not to be exposed and put on the butchers block for evaluation and chopping. It brings vulnerability and fear of judgement. These hidden things include a person insecurity, shame, suppressed guilt or anger. The longer these feelings are suppressed / hidden, the longer this energy stays buried.

An empath will expose the shadow side of someone, seeing those traits that are often so carefully protected. Protected to the extent of becoming a different person, wearing a mask to hide the true self. All these are reason as to why there can be an instant dislike towards an empath. The stars literally have to align to feel comfortable in the presence of an empath. It’s one thing not being ready to face our faults and work on our shadow self, and it’s yet another to be truly seen by another, in all our glory, faults and shortcomings included.

If this has been your experience, it could be a sign that you are reflecting back to them the truth that they deny. Remembering such may help you to understand and not blame yourself for the gift you’ve been given.

Anti inflammatory tea

In our health segment this week, I am addressing inflammation in the body. It is the cause for many chronic diseases and illnesses and is no friend of ours.

Inflammation in the body is caused in many forms and here are just a few of them. Poor diet, not enough exercise and stress are the main contributors to inflammation.

Do you have swollen joints, stiff muscles, flu like symptoms, fever, chills, fatigue, loss of energy, headaches, or a loss of appetite? If so you might be at risk of having inflammation in the body.

6 steps for reducing and managing inflammation in the body.

  1. Load up on anti inflammatory foods
  2. Control blood sugar
  3. Cut back or eliminate inflammatory foods
  4. Make time to exercise
  5. Lose weight
  6. Manage stress

An impressive list, but also one that’s not often managed so easily. We know how hard it can be to lose a few extra pounds and that stressful job is still needed to pay the bills. A vicious cycle that’s often hard to break. But here is one little thing you cc’s n incorporate that can make a world of difference and it’s as simple as a few cups of tea a day. It really helps.

What you need is a cup of green tea, with 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric. Heat and stir well to dissolve as best as possible. It’s a little stubborn but can be done with a little extra TLC. You can also add a turmeric supplement to your daily routine and don’t forget about our Limes from last week to flush out the toxins.

Love your life

Love your life. Take pictures of everything. Tell people you love them. Talk to random strangers. Do things that you’re scared to do. Take that leap of faith. Be grateful for having tried and failed vs not have taken that chance. Seize the moment. Don’t dwell in “what if’s” and “I should have”. Prioritize and make time for the things and people that matter the most. Live life with no regrets and remember that even the toughest of times bring the greatest lessons. Sometimes we just don’t understand them right away.

Don’t wait, the time is now. Be grateful. Grateful to wake each day, because you’ve been gifted another chance to try again. Give thanks and count your blessings. Realize that many are far less fortunate than you.

Be rich in memories and moments for those become your greatest treasures some day. Go on adventures and co create the story of your life. And yes, you do have that much power.

Have a great week everyone 💙

Awe…

Awe…this is usually my first view when I wake up in the morning. Other times, if I sleep too long, she might come up and lays her head on my shoulder, ensuring I’m ok. She did so this morning as I had a nightmare, coming to comfort me. She is very intuitive in that sense and picks up on vibrations and energy. She also brings care to an area you might have hurt yourself at, for instance a scab on your body and not much gets passed her.

Cinnamon has become a regular guest in my bed and usually ends up right in the middle, where it’s most comfortable and the heading blanket gets the warmest. She likes to stare out of the window to watch birds and just gaze at the world waking up, alongside with us. She is a sun goddess and will find the tiniest corner to soak up the rays and get her vitamin D. She is truly one of a kind and perfect to end the week with a fulfilled and a sweet sigh of awe….

See you tonight lovelies for our weekly Reiki healing at 7 PM PST.

Namaste 🙏🏼💙

Monachopsis

It’s time for another new word marvel, and today’s word is another close to my heart, one you might relate with also. Especially if if you believe that you are an empath.

For instance, have you ever walked into a room full of people and felt anxiety or out of your comfort zone?

Have you ever felt that few understand who you truly are?

Do you feel a sense of not belonging? Of having to behave differently from who you really are?

Have you ever felt lonely around the ones that you’ve known all of your life?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, today’s unusual word is for you and you are not alone. I definitely hear and see you.

Our word today is Monachopsis which is the subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place.

Calling my heart

Passing through this little town a few hours from my home is always a special occurrence to me. In a way it reminds me of my hometown in Germany. Small, quaint, simplified, it has the bare minimum of stores to help you survive. Nothing more, nothing less. People walk to the stores and times seems to move a little slower. It’s a feel of how things used to be and I find a certain comfort being emerged within it’s surroundings. There is a peacefulness, a quiet, a leaving your troubles on the outskirts of town. Many waive as you stroll the streets along the banks of the river and the town spirit appears laced and infused with kindness and friendliness. It pokes at a yearning deep inside of me, a yearning to find a resting place like this where sincerity and mindfulness is still most important. Where there is a true care, comradeship, friendship and genuine desire to help and support. Perhaps my soul has come a great ways and is feeling a little tired. Perhaps it struggles to adjust to fleeting moments and recognizes that different times are ahead. Perhaps it is telling me that it is time to slow down, to find this place, and to live out my days in harmony and peace. My heart hears the call.

Picture and guidelines credit: unknown

Here are a few good things to keep in mind on this dance through life. While we all have our own wisdom and our own experiences, perhaps it’s never too late to pick up a few extra pointers. Together we learn, together we grow and together we heal.

  1. When you are alone, mind your thoughts
  2. When you are with friends, mind your tongue
  3. When you are angry, mind your temper
  4. When you are with a group, mind your behavior
  5. When you are in trouble, mind your emotions
  6. When God starts blessing you, mind your ego.

Blessings to all of you my friends and much much love ❤️ 🙏🏼

The Akashic Records

Have you heard of the Akashic records before?

In theosophy and anthroposophy, the Akashic records is a compendium of all universal events, thoughts, words, emotions, and intent ever to have occurred in the past, present, or future in terms of all entities and life forms, not just human. They are believed by theosophists to be encoded in a non-physical plane of existence known as the mental plane. It is believed that all thoughts, words, intent, etc. generates its own unique “frequency or vibration” which is stored in the Akashic records.

It is said that we can access such records and they could be thought of as a cosmic computer system that has recorded every soul’s thoughts and experiences on a vibrational level. If you could access such records, what would you ask?

Here are a few examples.

  1. What are some of the main lessons and experiences my soul chose to experience on earth?
  2. How can I release blocked emotions?
  3. What fears, traumas or challenges am I carrying in from a past life?
  4. What is my Soul’s plan for romance in my life?
  5. What line of business will bring me the most fulfillment?
  6. What is the best course of action to heal a challenge I’m currently dealing with?

Lime Water

Picture: Yahoo

After getting much appreciated feedback for my Celery post, I have decided to do a health segment on this blog, much like our weekly unusual word post. I felt that each one of us has so much to share and yet at times it’s the simplest of remedies we hear for the first time. I hope to inspire you with simple yet powerful knowledge, and arm you with easy weapons that don’t take much to incorporate into your daily routine. I look forward to any and all feedback concerning this blog segment.

Today I would like to share the benefits of lime water and it’s surely an easy, quick and inexpensive additive to boost your health. Here are some amazing benefits of adding lime to your water whenever you can.

  • Boost immune system
  • Prevent cancer
  • Increase energy
  • Improve digestion
  • Balance PH
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Improve liver function
  • Reduce oxidative stress
  • Detoxification
  • Bowel movement

Impressive, don’t you think. Especially if you are struggling with any of these issues and definitely worth a try. I think there is something for everyone in here since no body is immune to cancer or couldn’t use a little boost to the immune system.

Giving it to the Universe

This post is about surrender, of letting “it” be, and making a conscious choice. There is always some sort of choice to make, and life takes us on a wild rides, whether it is on a conscious level, or on an inner level. The one we don’t even notice, sometimes until quite some time later.

Carrying out troubles and burdens simply gets exhausting on some days and it doesn’t matter of what angle life comes at us. Sometimes we are just tired and feel that we have fought far too long. That perhaps we deserve a break. How nice it would be if things go smooth for once. It’s usually when our strengths fails, maybe during a tough patch, a time of experiencing a low, that we forget that our life’s greatest lessons and achievements come during those very difficult times. It doesn’t matter once we have reached that point and it’s hard to see your way out of it.

These times are enlightening, but also hard work. We are taken on a journey from being aware, awake, conscious of our actions, our reactions, learning our lessons, taking the honest look at ourselves, putting in the shadow work and inner child healing, to hindsight wisdom and acknowledgements. We hope to be conscious enough to make great choices, but even such soundness can change from day to day. What worked yesterday may not today as a new day brings new circumstances. Realizing such, brings awareness that each day requires much flexibility, within ourselves and how we tackle our day and our circumstances. No two days are the same and no two experiences are the same, even if they are similar. Chances are we are not exactly the same every day, and different emotions will yield different experiences and perceptions.

There is no constant in fleeting moments, and perhaps going with the flow prevents us to get stuck. New experiences will require a new skill set, and each opportunity brings forth new ways and possibilities. Even remembering that we have choices is sometimes hidden in the fog of life, in our mere daily existence. Life can take us the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Roses one day, a glacier of ice another. Both beautiful in their own way.

I have been an eager student riding those variants. I have learned that there is a reason for whenever those feelings come up. Some days they beg to be addressed and acknowledged, while on other days, I surrender them to the universe, and take a break from my goals and plans. I try to clear my head, to let it be, to not interfere and to take that much needed break. I leave the unfolding to the universe to orchestrate what’s next. I don’t mind to sit on the sidelines from time to time, believing and trusting. I offer up my agenda and accept spiritual guidance and everything that comes up for me during that time. I trust that there is a plan far greater than mine. Where I might have encountered lack and limitations before, there are also spiritual solutions and creative ideas. I step back and let life lead the way. Thy will be done.

Could we all surrender and give our troubles to the universe to sort it out for one day?
