Even the savviest person on social media could not help but compare their lives to those seen online. Everyone seems to be perturbed by the picture of "perfection" projected by every social media user.

Do you believe in the power of the stars? What does your life horoscope say? People who continue to believe in astrology's power and how it affects their lives are why its practice is seeing a resurgence. Millennials who believe that astrology is a science make the practice stronger than it has ever been.

Does money bring happiness? You hear people say over and over again that money can't buy you happiness. In truth, many wealthy people dealing with alcoholism, addiction, and depression could tell you that this is true.
You may have experienced it yourself when you received the last bonus, but it didn't make you happy at all. True happiness, after all, is not something that money can buy. Splurging on a new cell phone or buying yourself a car would make you happy for a moment, and then the feeling fades away.
But what if someone tells you that your perception of money and what it can buy is obsolete? What if someone can show you the right way of spending money so that it can buy you your happiness?
Before you give up on the thought of money as a source of your happiness or pleasure, you should be aware of the various research that shows how much money can buy people their joy.
Money can buy you happiness,...
How does your brain shape your thoughts? While people think that they are in charge of what or how they think, many different factors come into play before ideas are produced. Your thoughts are controlled by the language that you speak.
How does language influence culture? It does so in many ways. The syntax, vocabulary, tone, diction—all of these are affected culturally. Your view of the world is expressed through the language that you speak.
The cultural background of that very language affects how you think and how your thoughts are shaped. While it may not be as evident as the other influences, it makes you distinctly who you are.
What comes first—language or thought? Linguists have been trying to figure out what influences what. Do people who speak the language influence their ideas, or does thought influence the language that they speak?
It is a mind-boggling idea. But...
The performance review season proves to be one of the most dreaded times of managers. It is not just about the bulk of work that needs to be done. The fear comes from the sheer exhaustion of dealing with defensive people.
Writing reviews and giving feedback takes a lot of time, and it can be particularly anxiety-inducing when you have an emotional person in your team. It's like a challenge that has become tougher over the years.
How do you deal with people who may cry, yell, or get defensive during the review?
The review of a performance does not only aim to improve the overall performance of the company. It is about putting a system in place that will allow every member of the company to contribute to its overall success.
Learning how to give good feedback should be the priority of every manager. It is about treating each member of the team as a valuable entity in the overall process. More than that, good...
We experience synchronicity in a variety of ways. A few of them are:
There are numerous other ways, but there are a few that I've found very common.
I will go into a more detailed description of the following material, but for now, understand synchronicity is a way in which higher intelligence communicates to us. It is what we label to be a coincidence, fate, circumstance, chance happenings. It is also what we sometimes experience as flow, harmony, peace, or ease. Some other forms of communication from a higher intelligence would be sparks of inspiration, moments of extreme clarity where...
As you begin to recognize and comprehend more synchronicity, there will inevitably be a desire to experience more of it.
Remember that synchronicity is happening all of the time. What varies is the profundity of that synchronicity relative to your ability to perceive it.
Think about how a telescope works. Light streams into the objective lens of a refractor telescope and are narrowed towards the observer's eyepiece lens to experience it. In a reflector telescope, the concave mirror accepts the light and mirrors it towards the observer's eyepiece.
In either case, the goal is to accept or perceive more light into the system. This is done by merely having a more substantial receptacle—a mirror or lens. The more light that gets in, the cleaner, clearer, and more distant, the images are in the perception of the user. The planets, stars, and galaxies observed through a telescope pointed into space were already there before the observation. It was merely the...
The beginning of every year is when people feel the strongest need for detox yoga. After they have indulged in treats during the holidays, people feel like they need to practice detox to clean themselves from the inside out.
But in truth, everyone could benefit from doing a detox every now and again. The New Year is not the only time you can improve your bodily systems. Several yoga postures for digestion are beneficial and help the body to cope with all the stress brought about by the celebrations.
Your body has its way of coping with the stress that you experience daily. The pressure that you feel in the office and the stress of your responsibilities at home, all contribute to the unhealthy environment you put yourself in.
At any given time, whether it is the New Year or not, your body has its way of telling you that it needs a bit of fine-tuning. Often, it begins when you start to feel bloated and a bit...
Psychics are often judged by the things that people think they know about them. While many assume they know psychics well, the truth is that there is so much the world is yet to know.
Psychics don’t always have it easy. Their practice is not often trusted, but they continue to do what they do because they are doing it for themselves. More than anything, it is their quest to learn more about themselves and the world that got them started in the practice of psychic reading.
Television, movies, and other media platforms have made people believe that psychics are phonies who pretend to have spiritual powers that just guess what the future will bring.
It has started a kind of skepticism among the public as to how credible psychics are. In truth, such representations have given birth to several myths that give these spiritual practitioners a bad name.
When you read more about psychic...
Despite the title of this article, "overcoming" anxiety is not possible nor ideal. Instead, to transcend it, we must accept and integrate it.
The problem with most people's perspectives as they initially struggle with ANY feeling that they do not desire is that it is NOT serving them. They assume that there is something they need to change about themselves or that they are not doing something right, and that is why they are feeling a certain way. Anxiety is no different than any other feeling that you feel yet do not desire to explore. It is based on beliefs or fears. Instead of pushing these feelings away, we need to gain the ability to embrace and transcend them in order to change them.
The idea that the feeling that we call stress is something terrible is an illusion. Just shift it into a positive view, no matter what it feels like. Every experience that we have is in some way supporting us. It is only in...
