There is magic and excitement in the air as we feel a rebirth coming forth.

Aquarius reminds us to see the big picture, to include all of humanity in our prayers and make our choices based on the good of the whole.

 

The shift from ME to WE is emerging, and WE have been healing, shedding, and letting go of the past, to make way for the new to emerge.

The “Chosen Ones” Choose Themselves

See on Scoop.itDAILY NEW REALITY

This article reveals the habits of successful people, like best-selling author J.K. Rowling, and how you can use these habits in your life.

 

We often assume that successful people got to where they are because they went to the right school or knew the right person or had the right genetics or stumbled into the right job at the right time. It’s easier to think about success this way because then you can say that these people were lucky to have certain advantages and you weren’t, and that’s what made the difference.

And the truth is, yes, luck does play a role in life. But luck is just an opportunity. It’s just an open door. You have to decide to walk through it and to make something of it.

6 Tips to Survive the Blues

See on Scoop.itDAILY NEW REALITY

“The word ‘happiness’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.” – Carl Jung

 

When I think of the blues, I think of music. Not because of the musical genre, but because music is medicine to cure the blues.

 

It’s one outlet I use to feel better when I’m down…

 

The darker life gets the harder it becomes to brighten things up.

That’s why we need a way to deal with the blues before it gets too dark.

 

Here are a few ideas besides music that can help you survive the blues.

Loneliness Can Kill You. Don’t Let It.

See on Scoop.itDAILY NEW REALITY

Social isolation kills more people than obesity does—and it’s just as stigmatized.

 

“Over the winter I moved from New York City to Portland, Ore. The reasons for my move were purely logical. New York was expensive and stressful. Portland, I reasoned, would offer me the space and time to do my work…

 

Once social and upbeat, I became morose and mildly paranoid. I knew I needed to connect to people to feel better, but I felt as though I physically could not handle any more empty interactions. I woke up in the night panicked. In the afternoon, loneliness came in waves like a fever. I had no idea how to fix it.

 

Feeling uncertain, I began to research loneliness and came across several alarming recent studies. Loneliness is not just making us sick, it is killing us. Loneliness is a serious health risk. Studies of elderly people and social isolation concluded that those without adequate social interaction were twice as likely to die prematurely.”

15 Ways to Refuel the Relationship Tank.

See on Scoop.itSEX | DATING | RELATIONSHIPS

by Tawny Sanabria

“Ever wonder how your relationship went from kisses, smiles and fun, to way too much work?”

The good news is that you are not alone, and it’s pretty typical for the passion to wane as relationships grow in length.

We could look for the “why’s” in that all day long, but it really is not going to get us anywhere—and might even have us going ’round and ’round.

 

What we do know is that relationships ebb and flow. We’ve learned that the initial lust and passion that is felt at the beginning of the relationship is not sustainable and that love evolves throughout our lives.

Improve Any Relationship by Challenging Your Perceptions

See on Scoop.itSEX | DATING | RELATIONSHIPS

“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.” ~Friedrich Nietzsche

 

When we are caught up in our own egos and forget to distinguish between our own perceptions and the factual reality of things, bad consequences can arise.

 

This morning, having set herself one hour to get some good work done, I found my wife desperately trying to make her printer work. I told her she should use my printer and concentrate on more important things. Surely her printing goal was to get the document in hand, not to spend her one precious hour fighting the machine?

When our argument had died down (yes, it really did get that far!) and after I had finished my morning meditation, I realized that I had once again committed my favorite error: Mixing up reality and perception and not calling things by their proper name.

In my mind, she was wasting her time and unlikely to get her any good results. I had told her so and that’s where we started arguing.

A Call to the Sacred Masculine: Ten Daring Invitations from the Divine Feminine.

See on Scoop.itGODDESSES AND WITCHES

If I am going act like a goddess, I want a man who acts like a god.

 

Yet all this talk lately of the goddess and the Divine Feminine seems like new-age wishful thinking, a fantasy archetype with as much to do with real life as Superwoman or the Fairy God Mother.

 

While goddess propagandists promote the unilateral concept of a spiritually elevated womanhood—strong but supple, decisive and nurturing, wild yet wise—glaringly absent is a call to the Sacred Masculine counterpoint.

 

Women can forever rally around each other, cheerleading new heights of intuitive and open-hearted power, but without the cooperation of menfolk stealing their own fire from the gods, we are preaching to the sistah choir.

The Art of Loving Yourself.

See on Scoop.itDAILY NEW REALITY

“Everyone says to love anyone you have to love yourself first. Many of us have high self-esteem but not a deep self love. That might mean that you admire your gifts and talents and the good hair days etc. but can you love yourself when you are being tested? Can you love yourself when you try out something completely new? Can you love yourself in the face of rejection? Can you love yourself when you are in an argument? Can you love yourself as you get older?”

What do sad people have in common?

It seems they have all built a shrine to the past

and often go there and do a strange wail and worship.

What is the beginning of happiness?

t is to stop being so religious

like that.

 ~Hafiz

 

Do you remember a time before all this struggle started? When you were young and innocent and didn’t know how hard the world was? Like, when you learned that Santa Claus was an elaborate hoax your parents were conspirators in? Or when you broke your leg and couldn’t play sports anymore? Or when you walked through the doors of middle school for the first time?

The 4 Step Plan to NOT Suck at Talking to People

See on Scoop.itDAILY NEW REALITY

This is a guest post from my good friend/relationship & dating expert Lindsay Miller.   With Nerd Fitness’s tagline being “level up your life,” I thought it was important for us to level up on the inside as well as the outside.

 

Do you wish you were better at talking to people? 

Did you use your 20 seconds of courage and then run out of steam?Once you learned how to approach people, did you struggle with what to say?Have you ever found yourself standing in the corner at a party?Maybe you didn’t even go to the party?

Small talk, for better or worse, is a big part of social interaction.

It’s the way we navigate the exciting uncertainty of new friendships and relationships. It greases the wheels of our interactions with other people and primes us for the deeper connections that follow. It’s the foundation of water cooler conversation, yes, but it’s far from frivolous—if you shy away from small talk, you may find that you have difficulty feeling connected to people, since it’s nearly impossible to skip right to the big stuff.

Do You Have A ‘Broken Art’? How To Own Your Creative Power

See on Scoop.itDAILY NEW REALITY

“Each word before leaving my lips seemed to have passed through all the warmth of my blood. There was no fibre in me which did not give forth an harmonious sound. Ah, grace! The state of grace! Each time it is given me to touch the summit of my art, I recover that unspeakable abandonment.”
–Eleonora Duse

 

If you fancy yourself a “creative type,” you might feel like you have to fight a never-ending battle for your art, whether against the “system” or against the daily minutiae that threaten to suck the life out of your creative soul. But the only enemy we ever have to face is “the enemy within our own household” — in other words, within us.
