Insomnia is not only widespread these days; it is a negative influence which may lead to depression and anxiety, substance abuse, decreased mental functioning, and even suicide. With less than half of adults getting their optimal levels and duration of sleep, it’s crucial that all of us look after that part of ourselves.
Relying on sleep medications can have long-term side effects, and after a while, we become dependent on them. Instead of using gimmicks or habit-forming medications to get more sleep, all you need are three natural ingredients and this simple recipe for a sleep elixir.
As we finally settle into this year, many of our well-intended new year’s resolutions have already been abandoned. Yet, it is not too late. This is early part of the year is the perfect time for us to still look back, as well as make plans for the future. But where do we begin, especially as it applies to our spiritual and psychic life?
Looking spiritually inward is not quite as simple as cleaning out our closets or drawers. We may have lingering negative influences we’re not even aware of. It’s human nature to want to keep old habits instead of creating newer, healthier ones. So, as we move into the year, it’s more important than ever to make ourselves spiritually healthy.

Dreams tell the hidden truth and help us to understand ourselves. Shamans and mystics believe that there are basically three types of dreams.
Lower world dreams connect us with our instincts. We see these dreams in archetypal symbols, myths, colors, nature, gods, goddesses, animas, elementals and mythical beasts and characters. There are secrets hidden in these symbols. Archetypes are also present in everyday objects such as cars, or clothes.
Middle world dreams are where we work out emotional issues in our daily lives. We dream about ourselves at work, play, and where we live. We dream of our relationships, our crushes, old flames, our family. Read the rest of this entry »
Everyone dreams. Whether it is a daydream, meditative dream or when you’re sleeping, we dream all the time. Many dreams carry symbolic energy within them, often containing spiritual messages for the dreamer. Dreams are not always easy to interpret, whenever we manage to remember them, but dream analysis can be developed as a practice. All it takes is some patience and perseverance.
The daydream or ‘awake dream’ is simply those things that you envision for your life. You may dream of a life partner, family, new house, vacation, new car, promotion at work, and so forth. Awake dreams are important, as they are a way to bring your true heart’s desires to the surface. Read the rest of this entry »
The fear of missing out, or FOMO, can cause a constant obsession with anything, and everything – whether it’s work, the news, or social media. And it can burn us out – physically, mentally and emotionally. It can actually compromise our adrenals, stress us out, scatter us mentally, and emotionally cause sadness, or even depression. We were not designed to live this way.
If we don’t unplug, take timeouts during our day, have an entire day of restoring ourselves, or actually take a vacation to unplug, we lose perspective of the great mystery that is life. We also sacrifice our freedom.
The most important spiritual benefit of taking time out is that our intuition becomes sharper. We don’t miss out on the messages our Guides, Angels, our Loved Ones on the other side, and the Divine may have for us. Yes, we have asked for their help, but for them it’s like t getting a busy signal on a phone line. They can’t get their message through to us. Read the rest of this entry »
Do you ever have a feeling that maybe you shouldn’t go somewhere, or you shouldn’t do something? Your inner voice is there to protect and guide you, so always pay attention. You will benefit from this always, so trust your gut.
Do you feel disconnected from your intuition? If you want to get in touch with your intuitive side, find a quiet place in your bedroom, or even your bathroom or closet, and meditate. Become mindful of your inner voice. What is it saying? This is also a great stress reliever!

Do you deeply and intensely feel the emotions of others, easily get sick or injured, and have a natural connection to all things spiritual? There’s about a one-in-five chance that you may be an empath.
Being an empath is different from someone who merely feeling empathy for others. The difference is being someone who is able to turn off the flood of emotions, against someone who is not. What a difference! A true empath literally feels everything, and that can be overwhelming.
It’s in the empath’s nature to take care of others at their own expense, which is why empaths often get moody or difficult. They may need more solitary time or exposure to the natural world than other people. Despite all of this, they are a gift to themselves and others, and they can learn defenses against the constant tsunami of incoming emotions. Read the rest of this entry »
