Heartache: who hasn’t been through it? Either in the form of a personal relationship that ends or in the form of someone loved dying, heartache is inevitable for life on Earth. It is part of the human experience.

When a relationship ends, the heart seeks endless comfort and questions such as “How am I ever going to make it through this?” naturally arise. The mind needs to control and it can’t control what it can’t understand. Rather than continuously trying to understand things that are beyond your current state, the path of accepting what is, is the only viable solution. But how to get there? Is it possible to make it through times of grief with ease? Yes: it is possible! If you breath through the process, you will feel more and more comfortable with all the sensations that such a loss causes. I know it seems like a never ending energy at times, but I assure you it will pass. …

Many of us struggle with food and it is often a love-hate relationship. From a very young age, we associate food with emotional nourishment. Indeed food is not just the fuel we use to go about our day it is also a source of emotional comfort. We often indulge in it as a means to handle stress, sadness, irritation, nervousness or any emotional upset that we don’t really want to face. Distracting ourselves mentally with the act of eating and physically with the energy of digestion is a way to cope with those wounds. …

One of the scenes of the movie where Phil kidnaps the Groundhog.

Groundhog Day is a classic! It is amongst one of my favourite films. The joyful way it shows us how our perspective towards life is the changing point for the way we experience it, is a delight! It’s like the metaphor of the glass of water: is it half full or half empty? When you are forced to choose your brain gets stuck. …

Much has been said about people, colors, genders and all the other gap differences we seem to find as human beings. How can we create a cooperative society rather than a competitive one when it comes to whatever difference we may find amongst us? What is the underlying cause of all the hate we perpetuate towards each other?

Parents have the leading role when it comes to racism, sexism or any other form of discrimination of a human being just because that person is different than what we are. Whatever the child experiences at home, the child tends to take further into his/her adult life. Beliefs and behaviors are inherited from families in the course of everyday life throughout years and years of growing up. …

Much has been said about men and women, about gender rights and equality. But as we strive for equality are we honouring the inherent diversity of each gender? How can we actually create a cooperative society rather than a competitive one when it comes to gender difference?

Parents and Emotional Awakening

Parents have the leading role when it comes to this subject, for whatever the child experiences at home, the child tends to take further into his/her adult life. Beliefs and behaviours are inherited from families in the course of everyday life throughout years and years of growing up. As we are currently awakening to our emotional needs and understanding that human beings are more than just the physical body that meets the eye, the role that emotions play in people’s health, in people’s behaviour and even in cultural norms is becoming clearer. …

“Tension is who you think you should be, relaxation is who you are”.

Even though relaxation is our natural state, we are so wired to stress that our organism gets used to a permanent state of tension and blockage as if that was balance. This burden creates an unbalance that leads to disease.

Letting Go: the Pathway of Surrender by David R. Hawkins, Reality Transurfing by Vadim Zeland and Ask and It Is Given by Abraham Hicks are three impressive books that even though may seem quite different, in essence are the same. They present different perspectives and approaches to the subject of spirituality, creation and reality. Hawkins presents an energetic emotional management system, a useful guide for a human being, Zeland explains quantum physics and how our energy affects our reality, Hicks presents our energetic nature and consequent interaction with the law of attraction. …

Working from home can be challenging for a number of reasons and one of them is our relationship with food. Emotional eating is one of the main challenges we face as human beings, especially in excessive societies where our emotions are not directly dealt with, so we often seek comfort in food to fulfil the emotional void.

Being a compulsive eater myself for so many years, I know how difficult it is to manage a lot of things at the same time without indulging into food. Stuffing myself used to be a mechanism of escaping my true feelings. I don’t know what is it about food, but somehow eating seems to be a “fake” relief for the energy of emotions or, better yet, for not handling the energy of emotions. The more time I’d spent at home, the more odds I’d have to fall into it. It took me a while to understand how this pattern unfolded and to track it back to early childhood. Since feeding is one of our basic activities and it’s so intimately connect with the brain — as books like Change Your Brain Change Your Body by Dr. Daniel G. Amen or Gut: the Inside Story of Our Body’s Most Underrated Organ by Dr. …

The Art of Living

In Sapiens: a Brief History of Humankind, Yuval Noah Harari describes how the Gilgamesh Project, the quest for immortality, is fascinating:

The leading project of the Scientific Revolution is to give humankind eternal life. Even if killing death seems a distant goal, we have already achieved things that were inconceivable a few centuries ago.”

The author also explains how death has always been a part of the spiritual approach to life up until recently:

“Until the eighteenth century, religions considered death and its aftermath central to the meaning of life. Beginning in the eighteenth century, religions and ideologies such as liberalism, socialism, and feminism lost all interest in the afterlife. What, exactly, happens to a communist after he or she dies? What happens to a capitalist? …

The Fear Epidemic or the Awareness Evolution

It all begun with a buzz on the news. Nobody was really sure what was going on and it just seemed like a distant thing we were all watching over the television set. There wasn’t anyone taking this seriously until suddenly coffees, restaurants and streets became empty, everybody started to go nuts with human contact and it was impossible to talk about any other subject than this one. People got caught up by fear and they tried to instigate that same emotion into others who appeared to be calm and serene facing the “crisis”. …

In the age of fast apps and having everything in the palm of your hand, is love still alive? Do we live in a sex culture and is love obsolete? What is love after all?

As I looked up the meaning of love in several dictionaries, I saw that love is defined as a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person. It is also described as a feeling of warm personal attachment with sexual passion and desire.

But what is love?

The closest that could define love would be a powerful energy felt by human beings. There are, of course, several types of love, but for the purpose of this article, I will solely focus on couples. …
