The Truth About Being 'Sensitive'

The Truth About Being 'Sensitive'

We are all masses of energy and we are all on this Earth. What you believe beyond that is up to you.

When I tell people that I understand that there's a higher power in the world, the first reaction I get is disbelief. The second is them thinking that I'm absolutely crazy. And a rare reaction is them understanding that energy exists and that some people are more sensitive to the energy emitted from the earth than others.

Everything that comes from the earth holds energy: the ground, the rocks, the plants, the animals, the humans, the water, the fish, the deceased. Everything is made of atoms. Those atoms hold energy. A basic scientific law (the conservation of energy, to be exact) says that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. What was once will always be. When something dies, the energy is just left here to be transferred from one being to another. If you can believe these basic scientific explanations, you can also believe that there are some people who are more sensitive to these energies than others.

I've always questioned religious institutions, but this isn't to say that I don't believe in a God. I believe that there is something higher than us, a being that once created all of this world that we stand on. How else would it get here, right? I realized that science and religion aren't too far off from one another, and I realized that all religions have a common factor: a mass of energy that created all that we know.

I grew up knowing that there was something different about me. Sometimes I just felt like I knew things that other people weren't aware of. I would have dreams that would come true, nightmares that came to life, visions and deja vu moments that actually happened. I would have a bad feeling, shake it off, and be doomed to that reality. I grew up being scared, very scared, that I was just crazy and that no one else would ever understand. There were signs in my life that I would pick up on, good or bad, and I would know that I had something spiritually higher than me watching over me.

The older I grew, the more sensitive I became to my surroundings, but I also was better able to understand the world around me. I seemed to okay with what other people would call their greatest fears. I knew that death wasn't something to be afraid of because we are all made of the world's energy, which never leaves the world. I knew that everything can be healed, even if a Western medicine prescription for the ailment doesn't exist. I found faith in knowing that we, humans, aren't the only things that emit vibrations.

I learned about the seven chakras of the body, which are centers of energy in the human body. We have the crown chakra, which is where your spirituality comes from. The third eye chakra is where your awareness is found. The throat chakra is the home of communication. The heart chakra holds love and affection. The solar plexus holds wisdom. The sacral is where your sexuality and creativity lives. Finally, your root chakra holds you together through basic trust. When a person is feeling physically, mentally or emotionally ill, you know that their chakras aren't balanced. The energy inside them isn't doing its job and they need something to help that. This is where we use energy from Earth's others beings to help create balance. Healing stones are the balance. Sensitive people can see the energy emitting from the chakras. Sensitive people can feel the vibrations of a stone from the Earth and channel it to transfer its energy to the chakra.

I started to understand religious institutions more by understanding my own personal experiences. A close family member of mine passed away a few years ago, and I knew that before this happened, she was meant to be my guardian angel. I dreamt about it, had a feeling about, and I just knew. A few years ago, she got very ill and moved on to another life, or moved on to Heaven, whichever you want to believe. For a while, when I was still coping with her death, I saw signs that led me to believe that she was okay and that she was still here with me. A psychologist would say that this was just a coping mechanism created inside my own mind to deal with the death of a loved one. A believer would understand that her energy was just taking a while to transfer because it wasn't ready to leave her just yet. Years later, I still feel her protection.

Someone from a religious institution would cope with the death of a loved one by saying that they are at peace and have gone to Heaven. Whether you believe this is the case or not, the energy of them is still left behind. A "religious" person would say that the soul and body are two different things, and that the soul goes to heaven while the body is left in the ground. This is why "religious" people believe in ghosts. This is also why they believe that all a sensitive person can do is see and talk to ghosts.

When a sensitive person has a loved one die, it's a lot different from an insensitive person "losing" someone. We don't "lose" people -- we simply communicate with them in different ways. We find signs that point us to them. They come to us in dreams. We don't see them as "ghosts" haunting us -- we see them as energy surrounding us. They aren't lost souls who haven't yet found peace and have gone to heaven. They are simply energy on a mission and sometimes they come to us for help.

No matter what you choose to believe in this life, just remember that everything is connected. We are all masses of energy and we are all on this Earth. What you believe beyond that is up to you.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

Wearing Sneakers To The Gym Just Isn't Going To Cut It These Days

Going to the gym is more than just working out its about having the right gadgets and outfits to go with it.


I am an advocate of making sure you sweat once a day, I love going to the gym. I blast my music, feel my muscles fatiuging, and sweat it out. As I have been going to the gym more I have noticed that people's outfits to the gym are more than just your average t-shirt and leggings people wear multicolored and matching attire and are geared up with their Apple airpods and watches.

I personally go with an old T-shirt and throw on my freshly washed leggings and my running shoes and I am ready to go, but I see how dressing in the full work out attire has a positive impact on your gym session. Feeling fully motivated in your new matching gym getup is important as you will want to work out harder and push yourself being that you are fully in the right gear. As I progress in attending the gym I want to get an Apple watch and track my data.

It is important to move your body for at least once an hour a day and by going to the gym you are ensuring this movement. Eating right also puts you on track and if you are working out and eating right you will surely soon see your hard work. NoIt doesn't matter what you wear to the gym as long as you are there your making progress. It is important however to stay motivated because in order to get anything out of the gym you have to participate and in doing so wearing a cute gym out fit will only make this better.
