Rejection, no matter what form it takes or who it comes from, hurts. There is no getting around it.
Every person wants to belong with those they truly care about. Feeling rejected by these people can hurt you so bad that you can’t imagine getting over it. Whether it is a friendship, a relationship, or a job, rejection is never a pleasant experience.
The pain of being rejected can cause a cut that’s so deep it could leave you broken for a while. Did you know that rejection has the same effect on you as that of physical pain? It triggers the same part of the brain that makes you ache when you are physically hurt.
There is no denying why a lot of people have that fear of not being good enough. They dread the thought of being rejected. If you have experienced it at least once or twice in your life, you probably do not want it to happen again.
Perhaps it has made you stronger than you thought you...

"As above so below." We most likely have all heard this saying at least once in our lives. These contrasting realms incessantly mimic one another in a glorious epic, and Astrology is the study that aims at demystifying that connection. It helps us navigate the invisible energies from the "above" that affect us down here in the "below." This year (2020) is the host of many resplendent astrological events, which may come to no surprise considering our world's current state. Among these events, there are the much talked about retrogrades. When talking about retrogrades, a specific celestial body gets the spotlight: Mercury, possibly due to how often it goes through this process. Still, all planets go through the same phase—albeit not as often. This year, every planet goes retrograde at least once, with Neptune and Mars' overlapping with the last Mercury retrograde for the year. This event will be taking place on October 14th. Since other retrogrades are...
There once lived a great warrior; though quite old, he could still defeat any challenger. His reputation extended far and wide throughout the land, and many students gathered to study under him.
One day an infamous young warrior arrived at the village. He was determined to be the first man to defeat the great master. Along with his strength and skill, he had the uncanny ability to spot and exploit an opponent's weakness.
He would wait for his opponent to make his first move, thus revealing a weakness, and then would strike with merciless force, at lightning speed.
No one had ever lasted in a match against him beyond the first move.
Much against his concerned students' advice, the old master gladly accepted the young warrior's challenge.
As the two squared off for battle, the young warrior began to hurl insults at the old master. He threw dirt and spit in his face, and for hours threw every manner of insult at his opponent known to humankind, but the old warrior stood there,...
When was the last time you felt like you won the lottery? A time you felt so good about your life that you couldn't think of anything negative at that very moment. It felt like everything just fell into place.
But when you feel like you are experiencing all the bad things in the world, you tend to blame it on other people. Sometimes, you even blame the Universe for not giving you what you want. But then, when you consult experts, they will tell you that if you are feeling all that bad luck, the first thing you need to look into is yourself.
Make an honest assessment of where you are at the moment. What are your predominant thoughts? After all, if you believe in your thoughts' power, then you should know that the energy of your thoughts can affect your life. While adjusting your thoughts can do wonders, taking advantage of the counterpart energy in crystals can give you a boost.

Yoga has always been associated with focus and flexibility. People who engage in yoga speak of the many benefits that they enjoy by doing it. Not only has it helped them improve their attention, but it has allowed their body to become flexible in so many ways.
The practice of yoga dates back to ancient times. It involves holding one’s body and moving through a series of poses, each one targeting to improve a specific part of the body. While it may be focused on improving strength and flexibility, it also comes with breathing and meditation exercises to help achieve a calm mind.
The stretches and the various poses in yoga help in reducing chronic pain, and many of these are weight-bearing postures, which means they help strengthen the bones and...
How do you take care of your health? Your everyday mindfulness is the key to keeping yourself healthy inside and out. When you are mindful, you begin to take notice of all the details in your life.
You become more conscious of what you put inside your body. You begin to make healthier choices in terms of food and drinks. In the process, you also start to get more sleep and engage in activities to help you become more active.
While there are many ways to practice mindfulness, being mindful at work is one of the best things you can train yourself to do. After all, you spend almost half of your day at the office, and it means that you need to be in control of what you do and think while you are there to keep a balanced life.
But how do you begin being mindful in the workplace?
In the past, when people went to work, they had this mindset that they were there to slave themselves to do as much work as they...
The foods that you put inside your body says a lot about how healthy or unhealthy you are. The food has a significant impact on the health and structure of the brain too. Eating foods that boost your brain's health can support both short and long-term functions of the brain.
Foods that boost brain power should be a regular part of your daily meals. Little do people know that the brain is an energy-intensive organ, which means that it utilizes about 20% of the calories that you put inside your body. Can you imagine how much calories it needs to help keep your brain focused?
Apart from the total amount of calories that the brain needs to function, it also requires certain nutrients to keep it healthy. For example, consuming Omega-3 fatty acids help in the repair and building of new brain cells. The antioxidants in the food that you eat help reduce cellular inflammation and stress.
All-natural brain enhancers are...
To begin, this episode was inspired by an early Joe Rogan podcast where he featured Dr. Steven Greer, the founder of CSETI (Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence), as well as the Disclosure Project - a man who has brought to light over four thousand cases of UFOs landing, and over 3,500 pilot cases of UFO sightings. Over 500 reports from whistleblowers from Military and Government officials reporting on both UFO and ET encounters, including over 100 of these reports on videotape. And on a completely side note - Joe, if you’re watching, please bring Dr. Greer back!!
Anyway, what he describes in this podcast is that all of these ET’s who are visiting the planet, and they’re real, by the way... - are not coming here in methods that are within the confines of the speed of light or slower because it would take millennia to travel across the universe at those abysmally slow speeds. They are moving faster than light, somehow.
He explains that after...
Each of us has what it takes to utilize time most effectively and efficiently as possible. The secret is desire.
There is no arguing that one of the essential variables in fulfilling our desires is our ability to manage our time. There are many methods for time management—and perhaps an even higher number of technological tools. The problem that many people have is that they do not allow themselves to become obsessed with something, to desire it so much that time works for them, not the other way around. The solution is to channel that inner flow state as much as possible in the direction of one's goals and ambitions.
What is it that you desire? How deeply do you want it? Don't look at this desire as something that you must give up other things to achieve, but rather, stay in the wanting of it. This desire to be a better person, to hold a particular title, to maintain a deeper connection with your spouse, to create a more exciting life—these are all strong...
The experience that many people are having where they desire MORE out of their relationships—intimate, family, friendships, coworkers—is a reflection of wishing more out of life . . . desiring a depth of experience that has been suppressed. We are having the feeling of wanting to love people more—to have a deeper, more authentic connection with our friends and family—because we also desire to connect more within ourselves.
The problem that many people have is that they do not know how to love themselves. Therefore they do not know how to love someone else. That's it. While there is not a right or wrong way to express your love, the more attentive we are to our own emotions, the more ability we have to be careful about that of others. We can find a more in-depth connection with others by connecting more genuinely within ourselves first, or simultaneously.
The practice of working through our ideal self-image and our...
