Love is usually a human experience of one person for another, and romantic love exists between two persons of the opposite (or same) sexual orientation and gender. Love and relationships go hand-in- hand! Love is an emotion, the most valuable treasure for any and every relationship. Love within a relationship enables closeness, trust, loyalty, and romance for the couple.
Life flies by so fast! Does it not? Granted on occasion time seems to move like molasses and it feels like forever to get through certain days, yet on the grand scale, looking back at the course of your life, does it not seem to have flown by?
It’s easy to get caught up in the ‘day-to-day’ and overlook nearly everything we’ve been blessed with. Becoming so comfortable and accustomed to everything and everyone that we no longer focus on the happiness they bring. Instead, we become so secure in them we take them for granted. This leads to us more easily lending our focus and attention on less than desirable feelings such as what we yet lack and everything we’ve yet to do or get. Naturally this area of focus may lead to fear, doubt, anxiety, depression, or any number of negative emotion.
Each of us are connected to the realm of spirituality in various ways. Everything is energy, and spirituality is in essence, energy. We are connected through this reality as we are all made of the same fundamental elements, sprinkled with stardust. Yet aside from our spiritual connection to other humans and their ethereal counterpart – spirit guides, we are also connected to all life on Earth. The wild beasts that roam the land and seas, as well as their energetic counterpart – spirit animals.
Yet how do we know what our spirit animal is? How can we determine this considering they are much like any other spirit guide, accompanying our journey from the ‘other side’ whilst offering love and support along the way, yet invisible to the naked eye? They are the backbone of our intuition, our internal guidance system that lends us strength and courage.
Most hippies originated in the sixties, and exploded into popularity during the 70’s when hippie culture was at it’s peak. Yet they’ve continued to flourish onward, into the current modern day. They’re also known as flower children, indigo or crystal children, bohemian, or free spirits. The Mirriam-Webster dictionary defines a hippie as;
:a usually young person who rejects established social customs (as by dressing unconventionally or favoring communal living) and advocates a nonviolent ethic.
However, these individuals can be of any age. They seek spontaneity, direct personal relations expressing love and expanded consciousness, and are incredibly open-minded, forward-thinking persons.
Finding (or keeping) a genuinely good man isn’t as hard as many women make it out to be. Lots of good, honest, decent fellas exist in the World today, the real trick is recognizing them when you see one. A healthy relationship begins with two individuals who keep it 100% real with each other instead of taking advantage or abusing that initial foundation of trust.
Once you find a man you’re interested in, or perhaps you’re already taken, there are many ways to figure out just what kind of a man he is. Whether he’s someone you could see yourself spending a lot of time with, or someone with whom you’d be better off without.
Men are a funny, crazy, complex kind of creature (women as well of course), but men have this way of being entirely unique and fascinating in their own ways. Sometimes it’s easy to charm them and have them following along behind you in an effort to make you theirs – other times it’s not so simple, and it’s a take a little practice and effort to fully capture their attention.
So what are some ways to do this? How will you know if he’s into you and really digging not just how you look, but also your personality and the silly little quirks that make you, you? What are some ways to figure out if he wants to take things to that next level, possibly start a steady relationship or just hang out more and become better friends before getting serious?
Most of us become all too easily preoccupied with thoughts, goals, and daily current events we lose sight of how far we’ve come and/or what’s right in front of us in each moment. We get caught up with perfectionism, societal idealism, and political correctness. These ways of thinking are usually instilled at a very young age, and further enhanced by the media, our own self-criticism, and the ‘system’ that keeps us indebted to slavery.
Yet throughout all of this, we always remain connected to spiritual, source energy. Our spirit guides (guardian angels), as well as our own higher Self/Soul, are always with us, and wish for us to remember some very important facts. They wish for us to see beyond the ego, and remember our true potential.
The ego isn’t inherently evil unto itself, it can in fact be used as a tool to propel us forward and become the person we wish to be. In the meanwhile however, while working through ego to become our greatest version, our spirit guides are here to remind us of our truth – even while the ego berates us with insulting self-criticism and judgment.
Are you single? Are you the only one of your friends who’s the loner of the bunch? The one that plays ‘third wheel’ often, or watches from a distance as your couple-friends make out with each other and hold hands all the time? Or… maybe you’re in a relationship but miss the days of being wild and free? Perhaps you’ve forgotten how it feels altogether and aren’t sure of your identity outside of being in a relationship?
Being single is often made out to be a bad thing, as though not being with someone makes you an outcast or feel as though you don’t belong. Yet once in a relationship, it’s sometimes all too easy to lose sight of who we are as an individual and all the beautiful things that make us unique. What works best is being able to find solid middle ground and enjoying the many fabulous perks that fall beneath the term ‘single’.
