What is your idea of a free-spirited person? More often than not, people associate them with the hippies and other types of new-age stereotypes. But is a free spirit as simple as that? Or is there something more to them than meets the eye?
A free-spirited woman is something of a different nature entirely. She is someone who doesn't play games by the rules, just because other people say they should. They go out of their way to do the things that they want.
The symbol of a free spirit is someone who thinks and acts for themselves. It is remarkably rare as most people would prefer to stick by the rules of the norm. Free spirit characteristics mean it is not bound by any particular doctrine or group.
They live on their terms.
What does it mean to become free-spirited? Living a free-spirited life means not residing within the bounds of a particular doctrine. These people do not make decisions based on what...

The Power of Now is a wonderfully written book about navigating your spiritual journey. It acts as a guide for those who want a deeper understanding of the mind and its role in our daily lives. Eckhart starts by sharing his early life and how he became a spiritual teacher. Through trauma and hardship, he found enlightenment.
Within the first few pages, the reader is given a perspective-shifting explanation of what it means to observe the mind. By watching our thoughts, we can identify our negative patterns, and when we recognize this negativity, we can change our thoughts or at least reinforce the negative with positivity. But more importantly, we can learn how to become neutral and not judge our thoughts at all. Through this observation, we become aware that we are labeling our thoughts as negative or positive. Becoming self-aware of this judgment allows us to realize where our mind is operating....

Radical Acceptance (RA) is a term floating around in both spirituality and behavioral psychology circles. In a nutshell, RA speaks of acknowledging life for what it is instead of dwelling in a mindset of wishful thinking. Now, that does not mean that it urges us to be utterly devoid of desires; those (if managed well) can be incredible tools. Instead, RA shines a light on being present, and therefore terminating wishes to alter either the past or future outcomes. Through RA, we develop healthy coping mechanisms that help us make sense of our mishaps and the aspects of ourselves that we may have a problem appreciating. However, there is a problem with RA that is not often mentioned.
The word “radical” can sometimes imply excessiveness. When we push RA to an extreme, it may start to look like Radical Indifference. It harbors an outlook of “things are as they are, and I cannot do anything about it.” However, this mindset...
When you find yourself at the crossroads, what’s the first thing that you do? Most people would look outside of themselves for guidance. Others who trust their intuitive sense and just do what they feel is right.
While the former usually works well for everyone, the latter is what truly needs your trust. Family and friends can always advise what can be done, while experts in the field can tell you what you should and should not do. And yet, what you often neglect is that your intuitive skills can give you the best advice for every situation.
Your subconscious mind is the source of all the hidden genius inside of you. It provides you with the knowledge that you need to make a sound decision. This is true for everyone, but it is particularly evident in people who have practiced their intuitiveness with great care.
Have you been thinking about someone and then out of the blue, that person shows up or makes a phone call? While...
How do you feel whenever you spend time at home? Do you feel sick, but you can't tell why? If you feel emotionally and physically unwell without any particular reason, then perhaps it is time to look beyond yourself.
Have you thought of getting a house cleansing? If you have insomnia or are feeling extra anxious, it could be caused by the negative energies accumulated inside your home. All these energies have been collected from various sources, including human emotions and experiences brought into the household.
When it comes to your home, you have to also think of ways to protect your energy. Can you do something to improve the energy in your home? In the practice of Chinese feng shui, it is referred to as space clearing.
Can you do space clearing yourself? Yes, you can!
Your home is an extension of yourself. For better or for worse, you have to protect it from gathering too much negative energy. If not, it could...

Scientists and psychologists have been researching for years to find the key to happiness. I believe that the answers have been in front of us for a long time. In fact, when we look at practices such as Buddhism and Zen, we find that practitioners have been living in bliss for generations. So why is it so difficult in the West to attain joy in living? What the West lacks in spiritual practice is being met with psychology. However, if we compare what is being explored in psychology to Zen's approach, we will find something interesting. What would seem like a reprogramming of the mind in one society is a way of life for another. In this article, I will compare a scientific approach to happiness with a spiritual way of life that has been around for generations.
Positive psychology is the scientific study of what makes life worth living. In an article written by Courtney E. Ackerman on positivepsychology.org, we learn what...

How much do you know about your vibrational frequency? Raising the awareness of your vibration and all those around you will only help you understand yourself even more. This means that you will have the power in you to produce your positivity, love, and light.
What do you know about spiritual vibrations? Even though your knowledge and understanding are still quite limited, you most certainly have felt them. "Vibration" in this context is defined as a state of being that is affected by the energy qualities of a person in thought and action.
Although people use the term "vibes" loosely, it is dependent on one's intuition. It's like the strange feeling you have when someone you don't know walks into the room. You instantly feel their energy, and you can tell if it is light or heavy.
It is also the same feeling you get when you meet new people, and you are quickly drawn to them. There are others that you meet that make you want to keep your distance. Every...
