Do you struggle with holding grudges? Are you still hung up on a relationship that ended several years ago? We all have certain things or emotions that we have to let go of. Whether it is unrequited love, desire, anger, or yearning for something or someone, all of these make it challenging to move on from the things that are not meant to be.

You’ve probably heard the term “emotional exhaustion” a couple of times in the past. You might have even wondered if you’ve experienced it in the past or if you’re experiencing it now.
The phrase “burnout” is often associated with a person’s physical burnout. It is when a person physically feels tired about socially interacting with other people. Emotional exhaustion, on the other hand, is when one experiences a period of excessive stress at work and in their personal life.

Success in life does not come in a straight road. Some may be lucky to have their successful future carved for them. However, others have to rely on their life experiences to teach them a thing or two before they're able to advance.
Often during the journey of life, we face detours, blocked roads, and dead ends. It takes determination and tenacity to be able to push yourself to keep going. However, it's important to know that just because someone finds themself at the brink of success, the victory itself doesn't make them a good or a better person. They are strong people because they allowed themselves to be shaped by the trials they faced. They developed resilience.

Everyone is made up of two main components: the physical body and the energetic body. Both of these bodies work in tandem to help us become the person that we want to be.
Your life force energy helps you experience life as it happens. The joys and the pains that you go through every day are your constant reminders that life is something you can enjoy to the fullest. Without your life force, your body would be an empty shell and wouldn't likely survive.
You may only be aware of the connection between the body and the mind when your life force energy has slowed. This usually happens when a person feels lost, ungrounded, and often depressed. If you feel like getting through life is a struggle, this may be a sign that you need to get your life force energy back.
Integrating the conscious mind to your inner intentions will empower you. This process will allow you to move to a higher state of mind, giving you revitalized emotional energy that subtly eases the body with...
