Empaths are highly sensitive souls, and being in a relationship with one can make a person feel like they are dating outside of their species. It’s not for the faint of heart. We are elusive creatures who sometimes avoid intimacy because we don’t want to feel consumed and suffocated by another person.
We feel everything, but that’s not necessarily what makes it so difficult to be in relationships. More often, it’s that we absorb other people’s emotions and energy so much that we barely feel our own. Our boundaries can be poor to the point where we don’t know where we end and others begin.
We rarely take love lightly because it’s difficult for u...
Happy Valentine’s Day! Archangel Raphael is the angel who helps us with healing and romantic relationships. Today is all about love, so here is some channeled guidance from Raphael on the subject.
Remember that you were made in Love. Because you were made in Love, you can be nothing less than Love itself.
You are all connected and a part of each other. Just as you are connected to each other, you are connected to us, who are connected to the Source of Love Itself. Your actions and feelings are waves of energy that affect not only yourself and each other, but the very Source of all that is.
When you choose to hate one person, you are choosing to hate yourself,...
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and I’ll be single for it…again.
I supposed that I should be frustrated at my ever long status of being alone, but nothing could be further from the truth. I feel really blessed to have this time to myself.
Whenever anyone single says this, no one believes them. They think we are deluding ourselves. I had a friend tell me recently that she thought that I had become too comfortable being independent and on my own. She decided that I couldn’t really be happy being alone. No one could.
She’s partially right. I have become really comfortable not being in a relationship. When people ask me if I’m ever lonely, I can honestl...
I love to binge watch. Sometimes it's sci-fi on Netflix, but more often you will find me cozied up with some popcorn and a slew of TED talks. Here are some of my favorite talks by women. They inspire me, make me laugh, and help me see the world from different angles.
Caroline McHugh: The Art of Being Yourself
"Most of us don't take up much of the space that the Universe intended for us." Carolyn McHugh is absolutely brilliant at helping people to see their light and find that unique spark that exists in each one of us. I've watched this talk a number of times and I pick up something new every time I see it.
Is there any more misunderstood or emotionally-charged subject than love? People will lie, cheat, steal, and even kill for what they call love. They will be miserable in relationships because of what they call love. They will give up everything they have, and sacrifice all that is precious to them, out of what they call love.
The world is absolutely miserable because of what they claim is love. Children pursue studies and jobs they don't enjoy because they 'love' their parents. Parents work at jobs they hate and sacrifice their time, money, and personal interests out of 'love' for their children. People spend their lives feeling jealous and insecure, or sad an...
It’s an extremely rare person that goes into a relationship hoping that their new partner wants them to change. We want our significant other to love, honor, and accept us just the way we are. We hope that they will respect the choices that we make in life.
Sometimes we don’t always give the people we love this same courtesy. When we think that we know what’s best for others, or we want them to change, we aren’t accepting them for who they are.
I am just as guilty of this as anyone. I’ve been in relationships and wanted people to be something
other than they are. I’ve wanted them to lose weight or quit smoking for their health. I’ve wanted them to start meditati...
