While relationships are, in general, places for delight, love, and intimacy, there is another side that is rarely explored. For some, relationships become spaces where they are shut down emotionally, hardened towards love, and turned cold. There is a constant struggle for people to keep an open mind and an open heart.
Just like no person is perfect, no relationship is perfect. But everyone can try to be more open about how they feel. When you open up your heart to the many possibilities that could happen, that's the only time you learn how to love everything about your partner.
What would life be like if people learned how to be more open to each other instead of shutting down? What would happen if people worked on building a real connection with others instead of being in a relationship just because it is convenient to have someone around?
Open heart meditation is a great tool to use when you want to start connecting to others. It...
Do you find it hard to give away stuff you own, but don’t need? Is it difficult to say no to something cute that you see at the mall, so you end up buying it? Buying beautiful things is fine, but if you are doing so every day or every week, then you must stop and reflect. Has shopping become an addiction?
Perhaps the more important question to ask is this -- what makes you buy so many things you don’t need? What do you get out of owning them?
Even though you might think you still have relatively fewer things than other people you know, it does not help to have more stuff than you could ever need. When you look at your house now, you know that there are a lot of things there that you don’t use and do not need at all.
Some of these things may have been gifts from well-meaning friends or family members, but you know you are guilty of buying a lot of stuff that you don’t need. Buying them made you feel good about yourself, and you...
We are living in critical times - with the rapid spread of Covid-19 we are seeing the spread of fear as if it was the virus itself... Scientists will tell us to wash our hands and practice social distancing, and yes... Absolutely we should do that!
But... why is nobody talking about how to strengthen your immune system? In this special documentary, we explore all of the ways that we can heal our bodies with nothing but what we put into it. This film is not intended to replace medical advice.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: We made 2 small errors in this video.
1) The human body does produce B12 under certain circumstances but cannot be relied upon, especially in general western cultures with the types of foods that we eat.
2) Spirulina does not contain B12 in the same way that we thought - it contains an imitation B12, similar but not quite the same. Thank you to our amazing audience for helping to point this out. We are reviewing these items to see if we should edit and re-upload the video.
Feelings of anxiety should never be dismissed as if they are not important. Most of the time, people feel anxious because they fear they might be in danger. When someone senses danger, their body’s automatic response is to either face it or run away from it, also known as the fight-or-flight response. However, chronic anxiety and anxiety disorders come from someone’s perceived danger, whether that threat is actually present or not.
In moderation, anxiety is not necessarily bad. In fact, it is a person’s natural reminder that they might need all the extra help they can get. But when it gets overwhelming and painful, that’s when seeking advice from a professional may be necessary.
Have you ever submitted yourself to a social anxiety test? Perhaps you have thought of it a couple of times in the past, but you never really gave it serious thought. Maybe you’ve even suffered an anxiety attack but didn’t...
Coronavirus has the potential to be seen as a lot of different things, something to fear, a quarantine enforcer, and even a deadly killer. This is the reality we are collectively experiencing.
As the designers and creators of our collective reality, we must accept that we cannot always control the circumstances that befall us, but we can control how we respond to them. If we were to take a look at COVID-19 from a higher perspective, we might see a fascinating picture come to form. The Coronavirus Pandemic is potentially a wake-up call, a massive lesson for us, and even an opportunity for enormous change.
While the long term results of the Coronavirus Pandemic are still yet to be seen, there’s no question that it transforms life on earth as we know it by bringing to the surface SO MANY conversations that we NEED to have. Discussions such as about wet-markets, the treatment of life, quarantines, health, hygiene, and collective responsibility, and along with all of these,...
How many times have you thought about the word surrender? Perhaps you heard it while were practicing yoga. Maybe you heard it a little louder during a church service. Or maybe you heard it in a song during your meditation practice.
The meaning of this word depends on how you want to look at it. It is inherent in human nature to resist instead of surrender. For some people, they do not like the idea of surrender because, for them, this means giving up. It could also mean letting go, and for some people, this can be very hard to do.
Surrender does not always mean to relinquish control or give up the power that is in our hands. As scary as it may seem, there is a positive side to surrender. Sometimes, it is all that people need to do to actually gain what they have always wanted in their life -- peace of mind and heart.
Teaching yourself how to surrender does not mean giving up on what you want. Instead, it is telling yourself to slow down...

Happiness is fleeting. It is something that a lot of people yearn for, but don't consistently experience. Sometimes, one's happiness is the only thing that gives meaning to their lives. So when they do not achieve it, that's when it truly becomes a problem.
When you are so angry that you want to throw a punch at your neighbor's kid who keeps throwing stones at your house, you forget about boundaries. You become so self-absorbed that you forget how your actions affect the people around you.
How would you feel if it was your neighbor who punched your kid on the face? You would be angry and out for blood. You inhabit the feeling of anger as if there is nothing in this world that could make you happy.
You get angry, but then the feeling goes away. It is the same as when you feel happy. It's like you are happy one minute, and then you are not satisfied the next.
They say that a happy person does not worry about if he is happy or not because he knows that he is....
Anxiety at work is a real problem. It not only flows through your work life but into your personal life. For example, what is the first thing that you do when you wake up in the morning? Perhaps, instead of enjoying the birdsong outside your window, your first instinct is to check your phone for messages or work-related emails. You then compose a reply to that email before you get out of bed. You may worry about what the day holds for you, which distracts you from enjoying your coffee or your family.
You are still not wide awake. Everything is blurry from sleep, but you know you have to get up. You need to get up and push yourself to prepare for work. After all, that’s what you do every single day. But how do you reduce stress and anxiety at work so you can enjoy the rest of your life?
To say that communication is overwhelming in this day and age is an understatement. Technology has provided us with a lot of means to express ourselves and...
Breath is an essential component of living. It is the first thing that a baby does when it is born, and the last thing we do before we die. In between, people spend their lives breathing. However, what most people do not realize is that it is one of the few things that the body does without the help of the brain and the heart.
Another fascinating thing is that our breathing is intimately connected to what we think and how we feel. Even though breath comes naturally, consciously learning how to breathe to heal helps you achieve the union between your physical body and your mind. It puts you in a position where you begin to realize who you are and what you are from deep inside.
Are you breathing to live, or are you breathing to heal?
If you genuinely want to understand what it means to live life, then you must explore the many benefits of prana yoga.
Pranayama is a popular and effective yoga breathing technique....
