Growth and Change During Winter Solstice

Growth and Change During Winter Solstice

While you are taking a break from projects to celebrate Christmas and New Years, you need to realize that the winter solstice is a great thing for your life. Celebrating family and taking time to rest your mind, body and spirit is a great thing to do and you can see that the winter solstice can help you with this.

Setting goals and making resolutions happens during this time while people start to wish that they will get things, but they sometimes forget that they need to take time to look at their growth and what they need in their inner being.

It is important to set your intentions to heal your heart and allow your energy to flow for the new beginning so that you can work on relationships and on the desires that you have so that you won’t be limited.

Nature and Life

Nature is something that has no end. Look at the things that are limiting nature. Can you reach the top of the sky or go as deep as the ground does? No. There is only unending nature. The universe gives nature to you so that you can understand how you can use it for your own energy center.

Look at your own energy and see what kind of healing that you need. Do you suffer from past trauma? Do you have things in your life that have caused you to be fearful? You can use guided meditation to learn to trust yourself more and to be able to let things go that are holding you back.

Using Winter Solstice to Let Go of Negativity

Take time during the winter solstice to let go of negativity and to ask your angels and your guides to help you and to build up trust. Even when it is dark outside, you can see that there is light inside of you and that energy can help to keep you safe. Learn to love yourself and put your own needs first and stop caring about what everyone else around you need.

  • Let Yourself Heal

You have to take time to heal. Things don’t always happen fast but if you go with the process then you will see that you can let go of the darkness and you can be free. Take time to quiet your mind and to see what is going on around you. Cut the cords that are connected to you that you have given others and let go of things that you no longer need.

As you use guided meditation and winter solstice meditation, you will be able to let go of old things and allow yourself to heal.

  • Guided Meditation

Find a place that you can be comfortable and that you won’t be distracted. Find the place and then sit down in a comfortable position. Let go of your thoughts and your emotions and just be who you are.

  • Begin to Meditate

As you calm down and clear your mind, notice your breathing and nothing else. Notice how you breathe in and out and how it allows you to relax. Let your energy that is negative leave your body, release things out like past trauma, bad emotions, and pain. Let these things move away from you as you deep breathe.

As you let things go, you can see that you are protected and that you can see that each part of your mind, body and soul is being filled with love and kindness. As the negativity leaves, you can let positive things come into you and be calm.

Breathe in and out and see how the air moves all the way throughout your body. Think about the nature around out and the beauty of it. Imagine walking through a forest or sitting in a garden. Feel the dirt under your feet and listen to the animals around you.

Look at all the tall trees and notice how you are waiting for spring to come and to bring something new to your life. You feel at peace as you imagine yourself walking through this forest, knowing that your angels and your guides are with you.

Imagine that you are walking on the top of a mountain, and you see a light, but this is the light that is yours. You know that this light is a good light and then you see light in front of you that is also good. Take time to step into this light.

This light will go into your chakras from the base chakra all thew ay to the top of your head. The light will fill each of your chakras and will ground you and bring stability in your life. It will move to the Sacral chakra where you will see an orange light and you will feel calm and happy. The relationships that you have had with people and your financial problems will fade as the light moves to the Solar Plexus chakra and turns yellow.

The light will then turn green, and this will go into your heart chakra, and you will feel unconditional love and healing and it will move to a blue light and will go to your throat chakra where it will open up your truth and your communication. The third eye will be next with a purple light and then followed by a violet light that goes to the crown chakra and helps you to feel balanced from your head down.

You will feel the different things inside of you that have held you back from being opened up. These things will now bring you peace and you will see that your own light is brighter, and you feel joyful and happy.

As you keep breathing in and out, you will see that your spirit, soul, and body feel lighter. You will feel that you are new and that you have new energy. You will be open to what the universe has to show you.

Imagine now that you are done, and you are leaving the mountain. You feel lighter than you have ever felt, and you know that you are going to have a good year. Walk through the forest and back out to where you feel a light shining inside of you. Talk to your angels and your guides and thank them for helping you and supporting you.

As you look around you and you see the trees and all of nature around you, know that you are growing and that you have to trust yourself to find your dreams and to reach your goals.

Ending the Guided Meditation

Now, after you do all of that, focus on bringing your energy back into your body. Let the energy flow down and all around you and know that you have changed. Be ready to open up your eyes and to take a step towards growth. Let faith and love be part of your growth and allow yourself to shine your light no matter where you go.

Make Him Want You, No Games

Make Him Want You

Are you someone that has spent a lot of your time chasing after men or trying to convince a man that he likes you? When this happens, chances are there will be rejection in your future, making your self-esteem lower. It can be hard understanding what you’re doing wrong when you feel that you are just showing them that you’re interested.

You need to learn how to make a man chase after you instead of you chasing him. Once you learn to do this, you will see that things can be different in your relationships.

Make Him Come After You

Most women know that men like to be the one that chases. Even though it might seem like this is a game or calling a man a player, the truth is that men just enjoy the chase because they want to be the one to show interest.

Even though men like women that show interest, there are different points of view that a woman has of this than a man has of it. Men listen to their penis when they want a woman. If he isn’t attracted to your physically then he probably won’t care if he gets your attention or not. You might even have sex with him, have good communication and you might feel that you have a real connection but if he isn’t attracted to you sexually then you will never be more than friends.

Men like to put their energy into something and when they can achieve something, they will enjoy that. When you first start dating, men will want to show their interest in you by first asking for your number and then getting you to show interest back to him and then agreeing to go out with him. All of these are things that he is achieving or working towards.

When a man is able to get the number of a lady he likes, he will feel that he has won. This is why it is important to let him do the chasing.

Why Is Chasing Men Bad for You

The way that we live now, we are always chasing after things. We chase after the house we want, we chase after the job we want, we chase after the finances we want, so then we think that if we chase after a man then we are making the right choices.

It can be easy to think that you should chase after a man, but the truth is that when you chase after them like you do your job or your house, you will cause things to go sour. Chasing after a man doesn’t allow them to show off their masculine energy. He will not be able to win you over if you are the one that is throwing yourself after him. Doing this makes you take on the role of the man.

Another reason why this is a bad idea is because you are throwing at him reasons why you think that he should like you and he doesn’t want you to force those reasons on him, but he wants to find the reasons himself.

Make Him Chase After You

Here are some ways that you can make him chase after you:

  • Don’t Be Always Available

You have to learn to keep to your own routine and not to skip things that you want to do because you want to make time for him. Don’t skip going to the gym or to the movies with your bestie when he calls and wants to go out on a date.

Also, you don’t want to make him think that you are always busy because he will think you aren’t interested but you have to act like you are squeezing in some time for him when you are busy. Don’t make him the center of everything.

  • Be Feminine

Being a woman is something that will get his attention. When you act like a feminine lady, you will flirt, be happy and playful and you will let him make advances and make him feel good about it. While he gives you his attention, show him you enjoy it.

Don’t say yes to everything he asks you though. When he is interested, he will get in touch with you and try to date you.

  • Get In His Head

When you are with him, do something memorable before you leave that day or night so that he can’t stop thinking about you.

One thing that you can do is kiss him before you leave but don’t try to be over the top. Don’t try to have sex or anything wild but do something small and subtle that will have him thinking about you all night.

  • Know The Right Guy will Find You

If a man doesn’t show interest in you, know that there is someone out there for you. He might not be here right now but try manifesting him and he will come at the time when you need him the most and he will chase after you.

Don’t try to do everything and anything to make him chase you. Sometimes there is a spiritual connection and sometimes there isn’t, accept it either way.

  • Be a Mystery to Him

Don’t try to tell him why and how you would be good to him and good to him. If he is interested in you, he will pursue you. When he wants to know what you do on dates or if he tells you that you and he would make a good match, this is a sign that he is interested in you.

Don’t ignore him or refuse to answer him when he says these things. Make a nice comment or give him an answer so that he doesn’t think that you are avoiding it.

  • Find Things to do Together

Find hobbies and other things that you can do together. You might start watching the same show together and when he wants to do something, he will think of you and reach out to you to do it with him.

Make a plan to do things together and if you can’t be physically together, do something like play online games together or send memes to each other. Don’t be pushy or try to text and call him all the time but let him be the one to text you and ask you to do something.

  • Flirty Pictures or Texts

Sometimes send him flirty texts or send him a picture that is sexy. It will make him think about you. Put on something cute and send him a picture or a text that made you feel good and see how he responds.

Don’t send him nudes or sext him because then it might turn into a relationship that you don’t want to get in to.

  • Stop Contacting Him

One of the best things that work is to stop contacting him. Let him make the effort to contact you and let him be the first one to message. Give him time to see that you didn’t’ respond and let him text again and this will show that he wants to get to know you.

One good idea though is to not wait too long to text him back or he might think you are ignoring him or ghosting him. If he doesn’t text, you back when you text him though he might not really like you.

  • Do Something He’s Never Done

When you start dating him, do something that he has never done before and be the first one to do it with him. Ask him about something he has always wanted to do or something he has never done before and then plan a date to do that with him.

Don’t do things that will be too much like taking his virginity or anything like that. You don’t want to be the one that does that if the relationship isn’t meant to be.

  • Don’t Label

Don’t try to label the relationship right away. You can’t expect to be completely with a guy that you just met and let things be casual for a while. Be open about what you want but don’t label the relationship after just a few dates.

If the relationship is too casual, let him know that this isn’t what you’re looking for and you are looking for something serious. If he isn’t looking for the same thing, let him move on so that you can find someone that is more serious, and you don’t end up getting hurt.

  • What Else to Know

Being confident is important but you need to make sure that you aren’t being needy. You never want a guy to feel like you are needy and then if you get rejected it will cause you to get hurt.

You need to be someone that is rare, and this means that you shouldn’t fall all over him and make him think that you are too crazy for him. Make him miss you and make him see that he has to put in an effort to talk to you and to get to spend time with you.

If you aren’t the first one to text him constantly and he realizes that you didn’t respond, he will have his feelings for you grow. He will never have his feelings get stronger for you if you are always swooning over him. Let him feel like he is addicted to you and see how he changes.

How to Tell If a Psychic’s Love Reading Is Real

How to Tell If a Psychic's Love Reading Is Real

Practically everyone today wants answers about their life, future, and what decisions to make. That means many people go to psychics or mediums to seek answers and, unfortunately, many of those people aren’t legitimate.

How do you know if a psychic is giving a real love reading or doing something else? Some so-called psychics read your body language to gauge if they are saying things that are meaningful to you. Others project their feelings and experiences into your reading and there are some who either intentionally or unintentionally make stuff up.

Yet, there are real psychics out there who can be helpful.

How can you tell one from the other? Here is a quick guide.

  • By Reputation

Real psychics have clients who swear by them. Before you make an appointment, check out reviews and even ask the psychic some questions as you would a doctor or lawyer you plan to hire.

How long have they been doing readings? What method do they use? Can they provide you with contact information for three clients willing to share their stories? All of this will build some trust and credibility with you.

  • Pay attention to their actions and words

Psychics will start describing things and people once they get into a love reading. Watch their mannerisms to tell if they are being sincere. They should be confident rather than slightly nervous. They should naturally flow with the information without staring into the air. Staring into the air means they are trying to think of something, which could indicate lying.

Some will start with general items and that’s fine but beware if there are no specifics. Anyone can issue general ideas or proclamations knowing that those can be interpreted in any number of ways. With a general reading, something in it will fit your life and those who truly trust the psychic will believe it to be legitimate when it’s not a true reading.

  • Watch if they start asking you questions

Some psychics are adept at techniques that get information out of you so they can give you a so-called reading that seems accurate. This is a type of con game that includes reading your body language, starting with a general reading, and then asking you questions to get more info out of you and judge if they are saying the correct things.

They may ask you if you met someone recently if you met them at work if they have brown hair and similar questions. They shouldn’t be asking questions but answering your questions.

  • Beware if they tell you their love history during the session

The focus should be on you and not them. Also, those who dwell on their past will likely project their emotions into your reading.

  • Watch for fearmongers

Perpetuating fear is a common technique among scammers. They will tell you that you must buy something or do something to bring about a positive change. This is a way to separate you from your money.

Some will stop short of telling you what to watch out for to make you buy another session or more minutes if you contact a psychic online or by phone. They know the fear in you makes you want to pay more to know. These are scams.

  • Pay attention to what resonates

You have a spirit within you that tells you what’s true and what isn’t. A true psychic will say things that resonate with you and lets you know it’s true. Those who aren’t real, who are doing cold body language readings, or projecting will strike a tone with you that it’s false.

When consulting a psychic, it’s important to be open but not naive. Look at what they say objectively and with discernment. Most psychics will give you some good advice on how to improve your life even without telling you exactly when you will meet the perfect match. Learn to separate good advice from the psychic reading so you always get a benefit without thinking it’s all from a spiritual source. Some of it is common sense.

The Take Away

You should understand two things about psychic readings. First, the events they could list to happen in your life may not occur right away. Sometimes, the truth comes over time. Roll with it and live your life with joy without always looking for the event. Events, like meeting the right person, tend to happen when you aren’t looking for them.

Second, realize that what a psychic says isn’t sealed in fate. We do have free will and are in control of our future. Some of what they say could be markers indicating you need to change your life for more happiness. Those who don’t like their reading should use their energy to make changes to reinvent their lives and mold them into the type of future they want.

Don’t shop psychics. Going to two to see if they say the same thing is like getting a second opinion but shopping psychics can end up confusing you and put you into a tailspin. Find one you can trust and stick with that one.

Getting Rid of Generational Fear

Getting Rid of Generational Fear

People that are intimate relationships often struggle with different kinds of issues. They can feel confused and upset and they wonder how they can love someone that they barely feel like they know. They don’t understand why intimacy is such a big deal and why it is so hard. From the beginning they were intimate but now it seems like it is a constant struggle.

There is no easy reason and no easy answer and depending on the situation, you might have to look at your whole relationship again.

Family Toxicity and Dysfunction

It is hard to talk about this sometimes, but families have a lot to do with how we build the relationships around us. If you have a family that is toxic and dysfunctional then chances are this is who you become.

What Does it Mean to Be Dysfunctional?

There are some things that you might have experienced in your family:

  • They don’t tell each other they love them.
  • They never see their parents show intimacy such as hugging or kissing.
  • Important moments like birthdays are ignored.
  • Children in the family are told to be quiet and not to say what they feel.

If you have seen any of these things as normal when you were grown up, then chances are you have lived in a dysfunctional home. It might not be until you go to school that you realize that your family isn’t quiet normal. This might be when you sleepover somewhere in a family that has a loving home or if you go to a gathering outside of your home. It is in these times that you begin to see how different your family is from other family dynamics.

Maybe at a sleepover you saw your friend celebrated or you saw the parents hug and kiss each other often. This can be different from what you saw in your own home, and it might make you wonder why your family isn’t happy like other families.

Healthy Families and Dysfunctional Families

Healthy families have parental figures that are there to help their child. They ask questions and they allow their children to ask questions. They want their child to be happy and to know things and so they encourage them to be thoughtful and to say their true feelings. They empathize when their child is sad or feeling down.

These families will put their children at top and the child will feel loved, believed in, appreciated, heard, and cared for. They know that being a parent is hard and so they want their child to grow up to be self-sufficient and strong. They will guide their child to become better no matter what they are going through.

They want their children to be strong and to be healthy and so they will validate their feelings and respect what they say. They support them and understand them, and they allow their child to confide in them with their needs.

Dysfunctional Families

Dysfunctional families are different. They don’t encourage there to be expression and they don’t want their child to have conversations that are meaningful with them. They reject emotional support and intimacy, and they don’t show affection to each other or to their children. If the child does something wrong, they are a disappointment.

The father might be someone that won’t spend time with you, and he expects you to understand that because he is out working to bring money to the family. He wants you to be thankful for everything that he does for you and if you say otherwise then you are the problem.

These kinds of families will get angry if there is a sensitive person and they accuse them of being overly emotional and react with anger. They take this person, and they tell them that they are just ungrateful and unsatisfied and that they cause all the problems in the family.

If you are the sensitive one, they will make you feel that you are the problem, and they will resent you for trying to make them talk to you or to make you force them to care. They are toxic and they don’t want you to talk about it. This may make you feel unsafe and make you feel that you don’t fit into your family.

Knowing a Family Dysfunction

Most people don’t like to admit that they are in a dysfunctional family. They avoid lessons and build up defense mechanisms so that they can don’t have to deal with the trauma that they experienced as a child. They grow up and they feel that they were never loved and then they have a hard time forming relationships with other people.

The people that have a hard time being complimented and those that are often feeling humiliated probably came from these kinds of families. You might feel that it is easier to complement others than to receive them or you might feel that being celebrated makes you cringe.

These people have an inner child that is constantly telling them that they aren’t special or important and that they think they are better than others. This stops them from being able to be loved by others. Since the family made them feel that they were hated and that they were unreasonable and overly sensitive, it might cause them to resent those that are self-confident and strong.

People that aren’t living their real life are often tortured by thinking things like:

  • If you knew who I was you wouldn’t like me.
  • I’m not really who you think I am.

They will avoid being close to others because they don’t want to have emotional intimacy and expose their sensitivity because they are afraid that people will put them down for this. They want to be around others that won’t ask questions because they have a wall up to protect themselves from more rejection that they might get.

But, as these people become adults, they realize that they have nothing to keep them safe and that finding healthy love is something that might be able to happen if they are able to receive it. Everyone has the chance to hurt others and you can choose to have emotional distance so that you never get hurt or you can open up.

Control Issues

Children that were in homes where they weren’t allowed to say how they feel often make their own decisions and are shamed if they share what they are thinking. These are children that grow up to be adults that want to control everything. They want to control how people look at them, they want to control how they look, they want to control their relationships, they want to control what makes them have feelings and they want to make sure that they are not put in a position where they will be insecure or vulnerable.

These are people that are often emotionally unavailable because they don’t want to feel the loss of someone that they love if that person decides to turn on them later. They want love and they want to enjoy others, but they don’t like the risks.

Some people will take the risks in order to feel that they belong or to have love, but others will avoid these risks no matter what. They will live in survival mode and not in love and even the threat of loving someone makes them worried and scared. They will never give up their control even if it means that they lose the person that they love.

Breaking Generational Cycles

It might be hard to know and understand toxic traits that you were taught in your family but recognizing these things is the first step in changing. You have to be able to understand what your defense mechanisms are and what you have done in regards to this growing up.

You have to relearn how to live your life in ways that builds you up and doesn’t cause you to have fear. You have to get rid of the fear and stop being defensive over everything. This will take therapy and other kinds of help to help you get past this. You need to be around people that are good for you and those that want to see you succeed and to be happy.

Understanding love and learning to love yourself can be hard but this will cause you to have changes in who you are and in your relationships. It will also change how you see the world. You need to understand that not everyone in your life is your enemy and not everyone will take your vulnerabilities and turn them against you. These are people that can give you compassion and love and help you to express your emotions and to know you are loved.

Here are some things that can happen once you start getting to this place:

  • You can accept a compliment that someone gives you.
  • You know that you deserve to be complimented and you are happy with this.
  • You can understand who you really are.
  • You accept that you are worthy of love.
  • You let your experiences increase the quality of your life.

You also have to learn to get rid of the cycle of dysfunction in your life. If you are a parent, a friend, a relative, a spouse or whoever you are, you can build your family around a loving home that is kind, supportive, celebratory, and happy.  Don’t ever give up on this.
