"Only in an open, nonjudgmental space can we acknowledge what we are feeling.  Only in an open space where we're not all caught up in our own version of reality can we see and hear and feel who others really are, which allows us to be with them and communite with them properly." --Pema Chodron, When Things Fall Apart by grwaller

How to protect yourself: Lightworkers are highly sensitive, sparkly, and empathetic individuals.We not only feel others emotions but we can also absorb them. People are naturally drawn to the light that healers exude. This means we will attract all sorts of people into our lives, especially those in need. The emotions we absorb from others can manifest into our own energetic fields either physically or psychically or even both! by TSparks

This quote from Gandhi is important to me because it has given me a saying to live by.  Before I read this I thought life was just random and I was useless to my fellow man.  In reality there is a cosmic force that directs us all, every day we touch other people in the simplest ways.  A smile could stop someone from hurting them self or others, a warning can stop an accident, even just a look can make someone feel important. by Raelynn8

Buckeyes. An Ohio staple, these little guys are our state chocolate and they are delicious. I use my own recipe, but this one was the closest to mine. (I use Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate. Which is way more swank and vegan.) And if you are feeling super gourmet you can dip them in white chocolate or drizzle. They are wicked easy (but tedious), and people LOVE them when I make them. by carlasisters

The past few days have been extremely overwhelming for me. As a budding entrepreneur it seems I have a never ending to-do list. I have found recently that my OWN self care has been slipping. And that makes me feel guilty and out of integrity. Because I teach self care. I preach the benefits of it. I need to remind myself from time to time to listen to my own advice. . Those of us who are super sensitive empaths tend to be very outward focused. We are always scanning our environment feeling into peoples moods and energies. We are also natural born people pleasers. We LOVE to help other. Which is a beautiful thing. But it can become harmful to us when we feel guilty saying no. We feel if we say no to someone or an event or project that we are letting someone down disappointing them or worse- making them angry. We often feel that their reaction is our responsibility. And so we put ourselves last time and time again. We say yes over and over until we are completely drained exhausted and resentful. . But no is NOT A BAD WORD. No is a self-loving self-respecting responsible mature and often times kind word. We have to start asking ourselves why we always fall to the end of the line. Why we are so worried about disappointing others- but what about disappointing ourselves? I often ask my clients who are struggling to say no what would you say to a friend in this situation. Because the answer is almost always that the friend should stand up for and care for her energetic needs. So then why is it that YOU do not deserve the same is my next question. . You deserve to say no. You deserve to stand up and to take care of you. You are important and needed in this world. But if you dont give yourself the love you so freely give to others you will be stuck in a cycle of overwhelm turmoil and exhaustion. . Join me on January 26th for a potent conversation on how to care for yourself as a sensitive soul in this world. This powerful workshop is FREE and will ignite you on your path to re-connecting to the beautiful truth of who you are and to working on setting boundaries and practicing the magical word no. .

"So many times we communicate gratitude, but don't stop to feel that gratitude fully. But gratitude feels good. And when we pause to feel it fully, we give ourselves a very powerful meditation ... for when we are in a state of gratitude, it is impossible to feel stressed, worried or distracted. Our hearts are open. And we are in ' flow'." Take a deep breath. Think of something (or someone) for which you feel grateful. It only takes a moment. by cornelia

Its ok! Two words to remember. While we talk often about confidence - there comes a time in everyone's life when you just don't feel okay. And that's ok. Don't hold that feeling in - share it with others - tell those around you that you're not okay - and most importantly - tell them how they can help. by Sherri32

"We're not alone in this. Every type of loving relationship deals with this shit. It's natural to take advantage and take for granted of the ones we love most. We have to recognize it and make sure we don't do it. Although it's a subconscious thing. I don't think there is control. The best we can do is make sure to make an effort to tell others we appreciate them." by mable

Home Office Design-Almost everyone loves working at the comfort of their home. While some who choose to stay wearing their pajamas and stay in bed for the whole day, others are really eager to have at least a small space in their home where they may feel as if they are working in an office. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you are going to talk about some renovating or dedicating one whole room in your house since a small space will do. Your home office can be just situated in a small corner by mariam
