I very much ascribe to this kind of energetic healing practice. It’s very important to challenge the messages we learned while young, definitely from our parents but also from other authority figures, our religion, our culture. If we are not aware, these messages are running our lives, not our true, authentic selves.
I loved this! Reading about India and the different caste systems within their culture was fascinating. Then reading about all the different dating Apps, what each one offers and the severe push back from the parents who fear all the changes. I can see/feel all sides but I am thrilled with the courage and determination of those that no longer wish to hold on to ideas that no longer fit them. “Women’s Agency” really stood out here and it’s so important globally. When I was a kid in the 70’s, my parents were really strict about staying within our religion and race as far as marriage. But there were many revolutions during that time that helped all of us to break through those barriers as well. We are making progress. And we should celebrate that even though there is more to let go of.
I love this. In quantum physics there is much discussion of what time actually is (a man made construct because past, present and future are all happening at the same time), different dimensions and time travel. I don’t understand any of it, yet I happen to think it’s all possible. I have been told a few times by some that they have seen someone who looked just like me - could be my twin! I hope I never see her!!!
Really fun read - lots of passion and love for the world and all it’s mysterious dichotomies. It’s wonderful to feel what you’re feeling - being present to what is, no matter what the “is” is. Presence, without judgement, allows me to see/feel so much more.
I feel this should be AOTD. So much of what was stated in this article I felt during the shut down. Love the terms “collective effervescence” and “emotional contagion.” I am aware that there is a collective energy field and agree that it is inherently social and woven through our interactions with others. I knew before the shut down that I thrived in an interdependent world but Covid made me feel it deep within my entire being.
Love every word in this article. I read Masaru Emoto’s remarkable books The Hidden Messages in Water and The Healing Power of Water. Both are compelling and surely prove how essential water is to our wellbeing. Current theories in the medical world feel that dehydration is one of the root causes of all diseases. By the time you actually feel thirst, you are dehydrated so it’s important to drink pure water throughout your day.
Interesting article. I can certainly see how isolation can breed conspiracies and hate groups on line. A place where people can be reactive, inflammatory, fuel discontent and feel part of a community - a movement. We certainly witnessed this during Covid and our election process.
I feel this is a must read. Very powerful. So disturbing. Another misogynistic culture that must be exposed and brought down. Bring in the collective voices to make it happen. And, more female ad agencies to hire these talented women who have been silenced and abused for too long. Women supporting women.
Wow, very powerful. Ms. Pelletier is a compelling woman, a pioneer in the field of women’s health and wellbeing. I have never heard of this alternative for birth control - seems promising. Her embodied feminism and transparency is inspiring.
This was brutal to read. There is a very long history of women being treated as “fragile” and “crazy.” A history of men being able to force institutionalization. “…the strategy is isolate, medicate, liquidate.” Our legal system has failed miserably here. Outrageous!
It’s a 10 - a ten that is so difficult to read - painful in a way that’s hard not to read. This is a practice I’ve developed over the years - to lean in and really feel what someone else’s world is like. This is a world I can’t imagine, yet this author brought it in so close and personal I felt every word. If you need perspective, a good reason to give thanks because you don’t feel like you have a reason for it, this may change your mind.
Religion seems more about accepting someone else’s perspective whereas spirituality is based on the laws of nature and is personally experienced and felt. There’s no dogma, rules or fear and yet it is much bigger than the personal “I.” Just a walk in nature can do a person so much good. It’s energy, vibrations and connections. It’s free, it’s everywhere and there’s no exclusion. Nature heals.
