What does it really mean to be an introvert?
Many of us consider ourselves both an introvert and extrovert depending on our surroundings. Which one is more dominant for you? And which one do you find yourself struggling with?
The classic trait of being an introvert isn’t necessarily being shy, but not getting as much energy from interacting with those around you. When you get down to it, studies actually show that has to do with our brains. Introverted people have less dopamine released when they interact with people.
”A 2012 study completed by Randy Buckner of Harvard University discovered that introverts tended to have larger, thicker gray matter in their prefrontal cortex — a region of the brain that is linked to abstract thought and decision-making — while extroverts had less gray matter.”
You Get Less Energy From People
Many of us have combinations of introverted and extroverted traits within us. One of the most common traits of an introvert is getting less energy from interacting with people. To certain degree, we all have this. Some people can go to a party and talk to almost anyone, enjoying light conversation with no specific outcome.
Many introverts enjoy deep, more involved conversations that take more energy, so they don’t start them in the first place.
To have simple and shallow conversations can take way more energy than it should. It takes energy to seem interested when you’re not and to keep a level of poise when you’re not completely comfortable with the person you’re talking to.

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.”
– Elizabeth Gilbert
I remember when I was in my 20′s and still held onto the misconceived romantic notion of a “soul mate.”
You know the one: one day you will meet the man or woman of your dreams and they will fix all of your broken pieces, thereby making you complete. That concept is wildly inaccurate, in regards to what an actual soul mate really is- a mirror.
When we believe there is another person who can make us whole, we are ineffectually calling ourselves “incomplete,” and we are anything but that. We have the power within ourselves to achieve that oneness; we really mustn’t try to find the answers to our problems in another.
By thinking we are only halves meant to become whole, we are in fact searching for others who see themselves as halves as well. But what does this accomplish? If you feel like a shattered spirit, then you probably attract the same .
Ooh, the mystery of Ouija boards.
The fundamental ideas behind Ouija boards go way back to around the beginning of the Ming Dynasty in 1368 CE!
This was a Taoist practice that used a type of planchette writing called Fuji, also known as “spirit writing” or, what we know today as automatic writing.
Fuji uses a suspended sieve or tray to guide a stick which writes Chinese characters is in sand or the ashes of incense.
It was used for the means of contacting the dead and those in the spirit world under special rituals and supervision. Eventually, it became forbidden by the Qing dynasty and forgotten over time.
Automatic writing is similar to painting a picture or playing music; it is something that flows through us.
There is some occult mystique surrounding automatic writing; it is considered an alleged psychic ability, when really it’s just pure creativity being channeled through us. It’s not necessarily a “paranormal” phenomenon, in that it is something we do all the time.
The actual word Ouija is a trademark of none other than Hasbro Inc., the well-known toy company.
The original ouija board
This is both shocking and makes perfect sense at the same time.
Originally created by businessman Elijah Bond in 1890, this board was used as a parlor game with no relation to the occult.
It was actually popularized by an American spiritualist who used it as a divining tool during the first world war.
Spiritualist believed that the dead were able to be contacted through these modalities and picked it up. Continue reading
Music is an amazing tool for both our emotions and consciousness. How many times have you tried to find the perfect song to match what you were feeling that day? The right song at the right time can create a magical feeling not even words can describe. Music can lift us up, it can give us visions of hope and intense realizations; yet it can also make us melancholy, reflective and deeply sad depending on what we listen to.
Music, if we allow it, is almost like a dictator of our emotions. Those goosebumps you get on your arms when you listen to the perfect song is called frisson, French term meaning aesthetic chills. It can feel like a wave of joy running through you. This has actually been called a “skin orgasm” by researchers.
The trigger of frission can happen when you’re looking at beautiful art, watching a scene in a movie or creating a connection between another person. Around two thirds of the population feels the sensation of frission; but why do some experience it and others don’t?
This is incredibly interesting: research over the past five decades have indicated that frission happens as an emotional reaction to an unexpected stimuli. It is usually something like music that we expect to sound different than it does.
A perfect example of this is seeing someone go on stage and start singing in a opera beautiful voice, something you were definitely not expecting. This intense and unexpected stimuli makes us react in a more emotional way, for that is our natural state of expressing ourselves. Continue reading
Cultures across the world retain an imprint of advanced spiritual and technological civilizations. These great societies, lost to the sands of time, existed long before our current model of civilization. Many are familiar with the myths of Atlantis, Lemuria, and other lost civilizations. Ancient writings across the world, and across cultures, allude to these long lost kingdoms, and the great cataclysm that wiped them from the face of the earth.
Yet this memory is much deeper than any literary account available to us today. It is ingrained in our human psyche as a collective and racial imprint. It is no wonder that people, even today, are spellbound and captivated by stories if this ancient mystery. They remain at the forefront of the human mind, despite efforts to discredit them.
Contemporary archaeology has long tried to dismiss such stories as mere fantasy, conjured by the minds of uneducated , and primitive peoples, or to reduce such stories to more recent, localized events. However, clear evidence is beginning to emerge that a great cataclysm occurred around the end of the last age approximately ten thousand years ago, wiping civilization from the face of the earth.
This evidence strongly agrees with the chronology of Atlantis given to us by Plato. Evidence has been found to indicate a meteor strike 12,900 years ago, leading to the rapid melting of the North American ice cap, and what we know as the great flood. Continue reading
