All about energy

Everything is about energy. That is a scientific fact. Both our body and our lifestyle are designed around it. By the way, this doesn’t only apply to humans, but to every living being. Without energy we will die and energy is a scarce commodity. When you let this fact sink in, a lot suddenly makes sense. Like, why it is sometimes difficult to get yourself in motion. After all, exercise costs energy. And on the other hand, why eating too much is often just a bit too easy. After all, food provides you with energy.

Connection

A wise woman knows she’s connected to every being on earth. She feels it in the marrow of her bones. It’s where she draws her power from.

I’m convinced that the main source of our problems – whether they express themselves in disease, depression or a just a vague sense of discontent – is the disconnectedness that comes with being a part of our society. From buying into the stories we are being told and tell ourselves.

HSP

HSP, or highly sensitive person, also know as a person with SPS, sensory perception sensitivity… that’s terminology I don’t have much use for. Even though one would probably include me in that group. I know that many people consider themselves HSPs and that for them everything fell into place when they first came across the term. But to me it’s just another label, invented to explain a normal reaction to an abnormal world.
