“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life.” …
I walked into our local health food store on the weekend to see a woman chatting with the store owner. The woman was frazzled and said that she hadn’t slept for days. The store owner introduced us and said, “Katrina will understand what you’re going through. Chat with her a bit.”
She dove into what she was going through. She was just realizing what was going on around her. She had spent the last year in total fear… and then “something” happened. …
It was on my bucket list… and it was no small thing because I had always been very self-conscious about my body. I could barely imagine actually being naked in front of a bunch of total strangers. But I was going to do it.
My husband and I went to a resort in Jamaica that had two sides — clothed or “clothing optional”. (On the naked beach, the two sides were considered “nude” and “prude”. ) I could hardly wait to step into this fear and experience what this was like!
My husband, however, was not so thrilled. I’m not…

I have always seen a bright and shiny world. I’ve seen a world where people actually connect and are loving towards each other. I’ve seen a world filled with Tesla technology and free energy. This strange custom of mining the Earth’s resources to burn them never made sense to me — especially when we are surrounded by infinite atoms of energy.
I’ve seen a world where money is abundant and we actually work based on our gifts and our joys for the sole desire of contributing to the…
Lucy Dan 蛋小姐 (she//她) invited writers from her publication “The Brain is a Noodle” to answer these questions. Looked like fun to me!!

I loved to read. At that age, it was mostly Judy Blume, Flowers in the Attic, and all the other classic young adult series from the 70s/80s. But I was always interested in alternative health and other ways of looking at the world. My parents got the magazine “Prevention” where I learned how to do acupressure to relieve headaches, all about how herbs can heal, and the connection of the mind, body, and spirit.
An empath is someone who feels the emotions of others. Early on in life, this can be very confusing because we can’t discern between the emotions of others and our own. So, we think that we are upset all of the time, when in fact, these are not our emotions at all — they belong to those around us.
So, what happens when an empath is in an intimate relationship? Well, because of our human history, there are many pitfalls that we can fall into. Everyone falls into them — especially empaths.
We have developed a lot of fear in…
What do we do when we are surrounded by people that we don’t agree with?
Normally, our first desire is to try to change their minds — especially if they are close to us — through love, proximity, or requirement. Surely it would be easier if they just saw things our way.
But what if this is impossible? What if changing the minds of others literally never works and that we are looking at the whole situation incorrectly?
This is one of the biggest things that we have learned during these strange times — that if someone has a different…
Two years ago, I was traveling around the world. I had given away all of my belongings, downsized to a backpack, and was having a brand new adventure listening within for guidance in my travels. I was blessed to travel to Ireland, Malta, Portugal, Italy, England, Finland, Sweden, Spain, Guadeloupe, Sicily, Bahamas, Greece, and the United States.
It was an amazing time full of excitement, hard times, great food, language struggles, making new friends, and constantly adjusting to sleeping in new beds, new food, and new cultures.
I also had so many revelations and spiritual experiences along the way. Emotionally…
What is a witch or a warlock?
Someone who sees more than the physical reality around us.
Someone who knows that there is magic in the world.
Someone who knows that time and space are only
Figments of our imagination.
Why were they feared?
Because others couldn’t see the world they saw.
Others were caught in their own spell of deception
That made them believe that there was no magic in the world
That placed them as victims in a world with no chance of escape.
Why did they live alone? Because they couldn’t pretend to have the conversations that…
