In my dealings with group dynamics of late, I realize that often a charismatic figure arises who often seems incredibly self-assured about their own truths. Often, these characters seem to be great leaders, minimizing any group dissonance that arise and creating order from chaos. They usually have a singular tenant or principle that they follow… Continue reading How to Spot a Hidden Narcissist
Yesterday, my friend Justine offered to do a reading for me about one's soul, body and mind and the connection between these three elements. She asked me a few questions about which parts of my body I feel strongest, most emotions and most connected to and this made me reflect on the journey my spirit, mind and body have been… Continue reading Where Do We Go From Here?
Lately, I had been feeling a gentle pressure to take an epsom salt bath for some time. At the same time, one of my friends on FB posted about having gotten similar messages from Spirit (see right) to 'chill out'. I was feeling rather PMS-ed: swollen, bloated and just feeling generally physically ill-at-ease. Of course,… Continue reading A message from Spirit: Turning up for myself
When it comes to 'that time of the month', do you feel like an over-swell of emotions, a bag of needs, an over-exerted body sack? I am at the point right now- day 35 and counting of my overdue period, and I'm having a lot of trouble coping with the hormonal aspect of it.

Lately, I've talked to a few people who have loved ones who have had psychosis or who have come into contact with people who have gone through a… Continue reading Psychosis & Energy Parasites: Are these States Contagious?
Part one of this series can be found here. TW: weights mentioned I wanted to address one issue I skimmed through in my blog about food, and that's the issue of being underweight as a result of mental issues. How eating disorders are, often, a result of a disjunction between mind and body, of mind… Continue reading Food and Consumption: The Dance of Mind, Body and Spirit
Those who know me know I have many issues with food, or more rightly, the ritual and circumstances surrounding the consumption of food. I would not say that I have a diagnosable eating disorder- and I have seen a psychiatrist and had been told that much (her exact words being, "Just get over it and eat… Continue reading Food: the substance between body and world
"There is a worm at the heart of the tower; that is why it will not stand." Neil Gaiman, Instructions Every time the Tower appears, I know I am to brace myself for some kind of momentous upheaval. Previously, the Tower has foreshadowed the toppling of narcissistic-type figures (ie. The Shadow Queen) or some kind of… Continue reading The Toppling of the Tower
