Close call with evil: a sociopath in the family

  “Evil” I always hesitate to use the word “evil”. What many people may call evil are actually just human emotions, traits and motivations: aggression, jealousy, greed, anger… These human traits and emotions we can address and learn how to deal with.

Hidden abuse

Imagine: you’re living your life from the assumption you’re operating from free will. That you create your life yourself.

Connecting to crystals

I have always felt very attracted to rocks, crystals and minerals. I roamed beaches and hilltops for them, I bought them in mineral shops… I filled my house with them. A Capricorn thing, I suppose. Still, even though I felt like living in a glittering crystal cave,  I had a remaining longing concerning crystals that wasn’t satisfied. That is, until I made a shift in … Continue reading Connecting to crystals
