How do you know if someone is your soulmate?
Continue reading to learn some of the signs
It is often said that before you are even born, your spiritual half is already decided for you. Everyone in the world has a perfect match and this person is known as being a soulmate. A lot of people believe that their soulmate is going to give them a lifetime of harmony and bliss, but in reality, your soulmate is designed to help you through your life while also helping you to feel complete. So how do you know if you have found your soulmate?
You Have Crossed Paths
Soulmates often meet each other before they connect. If you want to know how to get your ex boyfriend back or if you feel strongly towards a specific person then there is a high chance that they are your soulmate. They are the one who makes you want to let go of everything and give yourself up completely for them. The truth is that you never connect until the time is right, so if you have met someone who you believe could be your soulmate, don’t give up just because the sparks don’t fly right away. Give it time, and take things slow. Things will happen on their own.
The Ultimate Connection
Every person has to be ready to receive their soul connection. When it comes to your soulmate, your connection is everything but so is your timing. When you meet someone, you should feel as though you are being wrapped in the most comforting blanket you have ever felt. It doesn’t matter whether you are driving together, just sitting in the same room or even going out for a walk, because they somehow make you feel safe and secure.
When you have met your soulmate, you may find that there is a depth to your relationship that you never thought possible. You will feel and hear what your partner is thinking and this is even if they don’t verbally express it. You may find that sometimes in a relationship, you have a difficulty in expressing how you feel when you are in a conversation. This can lead to many different problems in the future and you may even feel as though you are not as connected to your partner as you think you should be. When you have met your soulmate on the other hand, you’ll quickly see that you connect with them on a basis you have never felt before.
You Feel Differently About Them
Have you ever met someone, only to find that you feel completely different about them when compared to the other people in your life? It may be a co-worker or it may even be someone who you have met in the street. Either way, you may feel as though you get a feeling when you are around them that just can’t be explained, or you may even feel as though they make you feel happy in ways you never thought possible. This is the ultimate way to know if you have really met your soulmate, but this may not be 100% evident at first.
This post is designed to educate people on what they can do to alleviate their own mental health suffering or help to alleviate the suffering of others.
This week saw us celebrate World Mental Health Day and, yes, the world ‘celebrate’ is used very deliberately here. Mental health is something that should be celebrated and we as a society all need to pull together to ensure each other’s mental and emotional wellbeing. The problem is exacerbated by people (and, often, employers) who are either dismissive of the dangers presented by mental illness or have a backward and reactionary viewpoint regarding those who experience it. We need to shed the inherent stigma of this very real illness if we are to make progress in this field and alleviate the suffering of one in four people all over the world. Whether you’ve experienced difficulties with your own mental health, this post is designed to educate people on what they can do to alleviate their own suffering or help to alleviate that of others.
The key is understanding
Unfortunate as it may be, it’s human nature to fear the unusual and the unknown, and those who lack an understanding of mental illness are largely to react erratically to it out of fear. If you’re drawn to this post not because you experience mental health problems yourself but because you’d like to know more and wish to help others who do, then I thank you for taking that first step. Hopefully, a greater understanding of this field will generate a sincere passion to learn and help more. There are more options than ever for people who want to dedicate themselves to mental health. You can even get a Masters in clinical mental health counselling online. Many people who experience mental illness feel unable to openly discuss it as readily as they would, say a bout of influenza (more on that later), but opening a dialogue is a hugely important first step..
The truth is that mental health is a very broach church, rife with complexities and most people experience some form of mental illness at some point in their lives. Many unfortunate stigma persist to this day because of our need to simplify things, but mental health problems can be extraordinarily complex. Schizophrenia, for example, is a complex and deeply misunderstood mental illness that is often confused with the far less common Dissociative Identity Disorder..
It’s okay to talk about it
It’s vital that we as a society open up a frank and tolerant environment in which people are able to share our troubles and anxieties when it comes to our mental health. It’s really astonishing how much of a difference can be made when people can discuss their mental health openly with friends, family and colleagues. This will hopefully create an environment which is more conducive to people seeking out diagnosis and help rather than suffering in silence.
Treatment takes time
If you are currently experiencing mental health problems it can be frustrating when after what seems like a lifetime of diagnosis and analysis, treatment either has a negligible effect or isn’t working altogether. As infuriating as this can be it’s important to realize that psychopharmacology is an extremely complex field that requires the exact right drug and dosage for the individual patient. A course of pharmacological treatment should also be supplemented with some form of cognitive therapy.
With just a little understanding and the right treatment we can all do our bit to ensure that nobody need suffer unnecessarily with their mental health problems.
Explore 5 Tips to Reduce Stress While Trying To Conceive.
If you’re trying to get pregnant, there are no two ways about it; you need to relax. You might think you don’t have time to relax what with putting in a full working week, taking care of the house and trying to conceive, but if you don’t take time out to unwind, you could make it much more difficult to get pregnant.
The vast majority of infertility doctors agree that stress is one of the things that stop women from getting pregnant. It affects their mental and physical wellbeing, making the process much more difficult than it needs to be. So, if you’re frustrated by your lack of success before you try more extreme measures, do the following things to relax first:
Meditation isn’t as difficult as you think. You don’t have to bend your body into full lotus position or go off to a mountain retreat for two weeks; you just have to sit down, close your eyes and focus on your breath. It’s so simple, but it will help to keep you calm and present, and that will help your body fight off stress and all of the bad stuff it floods the body with.
The simple act of snuggling with a spouse, child or pet is enough to bring down stress levels and make you feel relaxed, almost instantly. So, take the time to relax with the people you love and indulge in pressure-free physical contact if you want to get your body and mind in the right space to conceive.
Book a Massage
If you’re so stressed out that your whole body feels tense, it’s time to book a massage or even better have your spouse massage you before the main event. You’ll feel so light and free that you won’t ruin your chances of conceiving by thinking too much about it and getting stressed out as a result.
When you’ve been trying to conceive for a whole without success, it can be so easy to slip into a negative mindset where you never stop blaming yourself and your spouse for the lack of progress in adding to your family. This will only make things worse, triggering stress and depression in the body. What you should do instead, is think positive. Recognize that no one is to blame and whenever you catch yourself being negative, stop, take a deep breath and replace that thought with a more positive statement. If you’re happy, things are much more likely to happen.
Get Away from It All
If nothing else works and you’re buckling under the stress of trying to conceive and getting upset when you don’t, it could be worth taking some time out either alone or with your spouse. Booking a relaxing holiday will help you to unwind, get some perspective and come back anew. In fact, many couples who’ve had trouble trying for a baby, but have no known fertility issues, have finally gotten pregnant on holiday when they were more relaxed than at home!
Can you spot the Ostrich in your life? Continue reading to see if the description matches someone in your life.
Fairly recently I had a somewhat shocking and dismaying phone call from a former client. I will call him George for the sake of anonymity.
Now George was a challenging client to start with. When he told me his situation I suggested that perhaps someone else would have the answers he desired, but he insisted on staying and having a session with me, so I did the best I could for him. I was generous with my time, giving him quite a bit of extra time after our session and further information that I thought would benefit him. At the time he acted happy and grateful and was receptive to what he was being told.
So imagine my surprise when George called me up and informed me that his current life circumstances were my fault, and that because of it I owed George not only an explanation but also a free consultation for an unspecified amount of time!
My first reaction was confusion as my brain tried to work out exactly HOW I was responsible for his life? As I tried to assist George further, he became irrational and angry. He made some pretty far out accusations and I felt my own temper rising as he simply was not willing to take any responsibility for his own life and the choices he had made. Every attempt I made at a rational, adult conversation was quite beyond his scope of abilities. He wanted someone to blame and I was it.
After I finished that phone call with George I was left feeling a mix of emotions. I felt angry, frustrated, hurt and confused. After I had calmed down a bit, I felt something else for George, I felt sadness. Here was a man with so much potential, so much that he could have done with his life, so much that he could still do, and yet he did nothing. He was akin to an Ostrich sticking its head in a hole! What a waste!
I’ve met a few people like George in my life as I am sure you have dear readers. What is important to remember when interacting with persons like this, is to determine for yourself at what point do you back away? Some people will continue to resist all good intentions and efforts no matter what, even when they say they want to change or want help. It’s up to you to decide at what point you say, enough is enough. Do not put your own emotional welfare and energy towards people that just want to be an Ostrich!
