Color Correspondences – Tradition or Emotion?

5 Tips for the Empath

An empath is a person who can sense, feel, and even experience the moods, emotions, and energies of those around them.

When each tick of the second hand on the clock is a reminder that you’re running out of time, and your to-do list just keeps growing. You’re not alone. Most of us live life this way, passively moving from one task to the next because it just has to be done. But the truth? You have control over how you spend your time. Time is a precious gift given to us, and we need to relearn how to use it the way our ancestors did. And they didn’t even have to think about it this hard!
