How Empaths and Hypersensitives Can Prevent Mental Breakdowns – [Article]

by Hannah Xu on Unsplash

Being an empath isn’t unique, but it seems we’re few and far between being surrounded by people who are taught to suppress their true feelings. We treasure the freedom of sensing the truth, listening to our intuition, and just knowing. It’s really awesome, but depending on our personality, this ability can become a burden leading to a mental breakdown and worse.

I believe there are four key things an empath or hypersensitive personality needs to learn to prevent a mental breakdown in the works. Some of us develop personality disorders, mood disorders, and the like because we weren’t taught how to handle an overstimulation of the senses. I’m hoping after you read this, you’ll realize that not only are you not alone, but that there’s also hope.

3 Questions You Should Ask While You Research the Occult Arts and Sciences – [Article]

Like many occult enthusiasts, I picked up The Kybalion and was pulled in instantly (I know… Bear with me). I quickly picked up on its intriguing, paradoxical tone; the All is in all, but not the all, the Divine Paradox, the masculine and feminine within the Principle of Gender, and so on. I genuinely felt it had solid insights and also thought it was a great introduction to Hermeticism, but later I ran into several Hermeticists who absolutely despised this work and very bluntly corrected me on what true Hermeticism was. After hearing conflicting opinions about The Kybalion, I wanted to express my own opinion as objectively as possible. 

My starting point was a deconstructive literary analysis of the work. I didn’t expect to be going around in circles for so long, but I did and it’s almost embarrassing to admit how long it took to realize The Kybalion is a merry-go-round of ambiguity lacking foundation in critical rhetoric. I don’t say this out of bitterness, but in humility. Something every up and coming scholar has to accept, whether you’re studying general academia or the occult arts and sciences, is that flimsy sources disguised as being dependable can simultaneously seduce and dupe you. That being said, my experience with the roundabout that is The Kybalion inspired me to provide thoughtful starting points on researching the occult arts and sciences to prevent others from making my mistake and instead make their own.

Is the term “Empath” losing its significant meaning?

So the term “empath” has been overused lately and I’m worried it’s starting to lose its significance due to how desensitized people are to emotion and showing sympathy towards others. Sympathy and empathy are not exactly the same, but are closely related. In addition, those who are skeptical about the power of emotion elevating to a psychic level have flagged the term “empath” as another way to con people with phenomena we can’t explain yet. However, there are empaths who experience the emotions of others so strongly that it does elevate to physical pain. It’s not at all the same as being offended or “being too emotional”, even though empaths are known for their heightened sensitivity.

I wrote about how all empaths have the potential for psychic empowerment for the sake of informing other empaths who either want to explore the psychic avenue or start finding ways to ground themselves. Whether they want to believe in psychic abilities or not, skepticism will not encourage an empath to understand what’s happening to them. In fact, they’ll just feel more ostracized and be ridiculed for “trying to be special”.

Being an empath has helped me with so many creative projects and build better relationships. I certainly don’t see myself as special, superior, or victimized by my nature. Empathic abilities show how vulnerability is power and I simply don’t want us to forget that. Please read my article if you’re a fellow empath that needs some advice or would like to just feel less alone. All we can do is be who we are.

Astrology 101: Aspects – [New Article]

How many times have you tried to have a conversation with someone about their zodiac sign and they bluntly claim that their sign doesn’t describe them at all, and thus, it only seems like nonsense to them? Studying astrology takes an ample amount of time once you get past the sun sign.

Aspects “link the various parts of our nature and experience…[and] are shown as lines connecting planets from different parts of the chart. The position of the lines is determined by a set of rules, based on the number of degrees that separate the planets in the 360˚ chart circle,” (Gillett, 2011).

Synchronicity Numbers – 11:11 and more – [New Article]

“The synchronicity phenomenon has been called many things; “meaningful coincidence”, a paranormal event, angel numbers, the universe speaking to us, pseudoscience, and the list goes on. Swiss Psychologist Carl Jung brought the concept of synchronicity to our attention as a phenomenon of energy with noncausal events in his work Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle (1952). It’s opened up many theoretical debates and while those arguments still go on today, people are still claiming to experiencing synchronicity. You wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t experiencing it yourself or were at least curious what the “meaning” of it all entails.”

The Backwards Law and The Wheel of Fortune – [Article]

“If we are to be fully human, fully alive and aware, it seems that we must be willing to suffer for our pleasures.”

Suffering is associated with living, just as pain is associated with being alive. We wouldn’t call ourselves human or alive without experiencing these things, but we also wouldn’t say we were living if we were constantly in a state of suffering. The Wheel of Fortune is a reminder that fortune and misfortune cycles throughout our lives. Our control is located in our responses to it
