After going through a decluttering session, you are likely to feel clearer and more energetic. This is a process that not only improves our physical space but also our headspace. We have more space both physically and mentally, which in turn gives us a certain sense of freedom and clarity. Such experience eventually overflows to other areas of our life.
Life is about finding the right balance. That’s why a relationship can and should be a spiritual practice. If you don’t look after yourself, you can’t enjoy harmonious relationships with others. If you keep other people’s needs at bay, you can’t expect harmonious relationships with others either. In sum, we can’t run away from nature’s universal law of compensation: you get what you give. If you put others first and often disregard your own needs, others will mimic that. If you more often than not disregard other people’s needs, others will reflect that too. You need to find the right balance.
When you see the number 44 repeatedly it may either be the confirmation that you are on the right path, or an invitation to ask yourself if you are fulfilling your spiritual mission. This number is often a reminder of the need for hard work, courage, and dedication to your dreams. In this sense, seeing the number 44 on a regular basis can be a gentle wake-up call to focus on your passion, whatever that might be, and that financial abundance is likely.
You work in mysterious ways but I like the mystery. That’s where I find beauty in life. Although I may not see clearly where I’m going, I know your will. I know there’s a time for everything and that there is little to no reward for stubbornness. I also know you take care of every move and step. When a door closes, you are only training us to see beyond the obvious.
I did enjoy Stephanie’s book a lot and I strongly recommend you to peek on it, if you are into journaling and writing as a method of self-expression and personal transformation. You will find many interesting prompts across the entire book so that you can work your writing flow and perhaps discover more about yourself within specific topics to which you never really paid much attention to.
We have been feeling somewhat lucky and enthusiastic about creating order out of chaos in which we may perceive ourselves to be living. You have been wanting to fix your life and yet you are not sure of what exactly you need to do or how you should go about it.
Doing this exercise helps us reflect upon life and generate solutions to improve the areas in which we are not doing so well and may not even be aware. Our well-being is a function of the balance we create between different aspects of our life. If you score high in one area but much lower in a couple few others, your overall sense of well-being will be a reflection of that imbalance. That’s why the Wheel of Life is one of my favorite exercises and my number one hack whenever I feel stuck or blocked in life.
My routines changed completely and I have faced situations that otherwise I wouldn’t and for which I’m grateful. I have dived deep into a reality that has shown me what it feels like to share your life with someone remarkably special. At the same time, it’s like I haven’t lived my own life but rather played a support role in a stranger-than-fiction movie. I miss what made me me. I miss my routines and personal space. I miss what’s familiar to me and the sense of community I had through blogging.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love Mediterranean food and appreciate the myriad of scientific studies that demonstrate its benefits. In this blog post, I will share what the scientific community has to say about osteoarthritis (OA) and the Mediterranean diet (MDiet).
Meditation can offer you different benefits for well-being. These include increased self-awareness, a greater focus on the present moment, reduced stress, enhanced productivity, and improved self-regulation. I find Zazen meditation very useful and adequate to my needs and goals. I hope this post makes you curious to explore other meditation styles so that you can find one that suits your nature.
Grounding, also known as earthing, is an important practice, especially for highly sensitive people and empaths, who are more prone to sense subtle energy. Grounding involves direct skin contact with the surface of the earth or with grounding devices. It helps us reconnect with the earth and rebalance our energy field. On top of an increased sense of well-being, earthing has been shown to reduce or alleviate inflammation related-problems such as redness, heat, swelling, and pain. Other findings also include positive effects on sleep as well as stress and anxiety reduction.
