How to Get Over Him

How to Get Over Him

 

 

A Step by Step Guide for Moving On

 

 

Being in a relationship is great. Loneliness rarely sets in because you always have someone to spend the day with or talk to when you need to vent. You experience new things with this person, like seeing plays, going to concerts, traveling, exploring new restaurants and shops, etc. You can also learn from this person by conversing and challenging each other to understand different ideas and philosophies.

Oh, and there’s sex! Who doesn’t love sex? So being in a relationship sounds great, and on paper, it is. However, in reality, relationships aren’t bulletproof. You’ll argue about trivial nonsense like where to eat, or what movie to watch. Relationships are complicated and stressful so failure is always a great possibility. Now, no one who is happy in their relationship would want it to end; unfortunately, we don’t always get what we want. Like the famous saying goes, “All good things must eventually come to an end.”

Dealing with the aftermath of a failed relationship is always a tough thing to overcome, but you can make it easier on yourself by being proactive with these steps:

 

 

 

Accept the Truth

 

Honestly, there are many things that can act as a catalyst in ending a relationship: cheating, lack of communication, or just plain boredom. It doesn’t really matter where the relationship went wrong, and you’ll only drive yourself insane trying to rework the timeline attempting to pin down the exact moment in which everything fell apart.

Instead, take a deep breath and swallow the truth. That’s step number one: accepting that it’s over. This will be the hardest step for most people, as optimism naturally takes over when the relationship ends. You’ll try to get the person back, hanging onto the notion that there may be a chance he will take you back.

Let go. The quicker you accept the truth, the quicker you’ll get over him or her and start dating again.

 

 

Reflect on the Failed Relationship

According to Dr. Karen Weinstein, a psychologist from New York, you should look back at the relationship for everything it was: both the good and the bad. Don’t idealize it. Instead, make a list of the things about it that didn’t make you happy. You might find some reasons it’s better that you two went your separate ways.

A study from the journal, Social Psychological and Personality Science, also shows that thoughtful reflection about a relationship after it ends can help speed up the healing process — this isn’t wallowing, though. If you’re not in a place where you can think about your relationship clearly, that’s okay. Give it some time and then try again.

Connect With Your Friends

The worst thing you can do after a relationship ends is become a recluse. You see it in the movies all the time (typically romantic comedies). The protagonist is lying in bed, sulking over their broken heart. Friends then burst into the room — usually throwing back the curtains to let light into the depressing, dark room — and finger through the protagonist’s filthy food scraps and unkempt belongings.

For the rest of us, we have to be the ones to instigate a “hang out” with our friends, because they have lives too. Also, when you tell someone to leave you alone in real life . . . they usually do. So be a big boy or girl and call a friend to spend time with you.

 

 

Talk it Out

Talking through the breakup with close friends can also be therapeutic. A study by Grace Larson of Northwestern University found that talking through how you feel now that you’re no longer in a relationship and revisiting key points of the breakup, such as when you thought it was going south and how it affected your view on romance, can help you regain your own identity and sense of self now that you’re no longer in a couple.

While talking it through, it may be helpful to consider your own story from a third-person perspective. In other words, put yourself in your friend’s (or someone else’s) shoes and describe it from their viewpoint. Research shows that this kind of distancing helps you reflect and gain insight from what you’ve experienced without falling into feeling sorry for yourself.

Get Busy

This step ties into the second one. Make sure you find something to do. Let me clarify that this step is mostly for the times when you are alone. What I did was watch movies, play lots of video games, listen to my MP3 player, and read a bunch of books.

Of course, hanging out with a friend is a great way to take your mind off of the relationship and your ex, but they have lives too and can’t spend every waking minute consoling you. So, do anything as long as you’re not just sitting in your room browsing the Internet.

What you do doesn’t have to be something big, either. In fact, research indicates that even just doing something with the intention of it helping you could be effective. Journaling intentionally is one example of something small that can be really helpful.

I suggest getting yourself a beautiful new journalling notebook to inspire your new habit. 

Some Examples:

 

 

 

Learn Something New

Similar to the previous step, this step requires you to get up and do something. Where it differs though, is in what you are doing. Step three gets your mind off of your ex, but it allows you to do unproductive things for the sake of healing.

Step four is different in that you should do things considered “productive.” I took the time to write and to learn how to play piano. I also took up the hobby of paper crafting. So do something productive like writing, learning to play an instrument, learning a new language, or taking up a hobby.

This is a crucial step of rebuilding your identity — one that doesn’t include your ex. It’s been shown that people who strongly identified themselves with their partners had a harder time getting over the relationship, so the more you can build a new you or rediscover old hobbies, or even rediscover what it’s like to do your old hobbies as a single person, the closer you’ll get to being happy without your ex.

 

 

Work Out

Exercising is good for your body as well as your mind. It has been proven to make you more focused and energized. Having focus and energy will help motivate you to do things like those listed in step four. Plus, if you are out of shape, then exercising will help you tone that body so when you are ready to get back to dating, you’ll be more confident about your physical appearance.

 

 

Take a Vacation if You Can

This step may not be possible for some of you. If money is tight, or if you’re young and don’t have a job, then this step may not be too useful. For those who can spare the cash, take a mini-vacation. You don’t have to fly off to Hawaii, Italy, or somewhere outlandish.

When a relationship ends, it’s hard to give complete, undivided attention to work and school. Sometimes you need to shake loose and enjoy life.

And if you’re having impulses to do something crazy — like dye your hair, get a tattoo, quit your job, and move to New Zealand — you’re better off waiting to do those things until you’re a little more stable and in control. A vacation could be a good way to feel a little impulsive without being totally out of control. You can try on a new identity later on down the line.

 

 

Cut Yourself Some Slack

Slightly different from going on vacation, this step encourages you to take a break from dating. A common mistake people make after being dumped is to date someone immediately after. That’s a no-no. Don’t make someone your rebound — that’s never nice.

Instead, take a break to reflect on yourself. Spend time working on bettering your life through your hobbies, your schooling, your career, or whatever else. Stay away from dating because there are too many things that can go wrong with that. You could annoyingly bring up your ex to your new partner, causing them to question your sanity and attraction to them. If your ex cheated on you, then you will most likely have trust issues with the new girlfriend or boyfriend (I’m guilty of this).

So just take a break. You don’t have to wait a whole year like I did before getting back into the dating scene, but at least give it a few months.

You might even be over them faster than you think. Most people overestimate how long it will take for them to get over their ex significant other, especially if they weren’t involved with the decision to end the relationship in the first place. So it might seem like things are never going to get better and that you’re never going to find someone else, but those thoughts simply aren’t true.

Embrace Change in Your Life

I should note here that these steps don’t have to be followed in any order, with the exception of the first step. In fact, these steps shouldn’t really be “steps” at all. You should continue doing all of them simultaneously or interchangeably until you have reached an emotional state you are satisfied with. That being said, I believe this final step is the MOST important step, hence why I saved it for last. It’s going to sound a bit harsh and a bit drastic, but I promise it is necessary.

The final thing you need to do is change your life. This can mean almost anything and will differ from person to person, but one thing should always be done. Get rid of your ex’s stuff. Throw away the pictures, videos, notes, presents, etc. or at least hide them away. You cannot completely move forward if you are clinging to the past.

 

 

Also, I’ve never met someone who was comfortable with their significant other having things from their previous relationships. It’s unhealthy and stubborn. Why would you want to hold onto memories of a failed relationship? I mean, sure, there were good moments in the relationship, but the very fact that it ended means that those good memories were outweighed by the bad. Like in the movie 500 Days of Summer, if you just stop focusing on all the good times from the relationship, you’ll remember all the bad ones.

 

 

Cut Him Out (Entirely!)

The next thing to do is get rid of your ex. Wait a minute, that makes no sense . . . I mean, we are already broken up, right? Wrong. In today’s Internet-driven age, most people never really get rid of their ex. They keep them as friends on various social media platforms.

This usually happens because both parties agree to “still be friends.” Don’t do this! Get rid of him or her. You will only hurt yourself by pretending that you can still be friends. I know it sounds mean, but you’ll regret it when he gets a new girlfriend and floods his Facebook with pictures of them kissing and loving each other or bombards his “wall” with status updates about how awesome the new girl is (the alternative applies for guys as well).

 

 

Protect yourself. Stop worrying about him. If in the future you decide you can be friends, then go ahead (unless your new partner has an issue, which is entirely understandable), but during the healing process, it’s best to shut them out entirely.

Besides, one study showed that people who cyber-stalked their exes tended to have more negative feelings about them, missed them more, and in general felt worse about the breakup. Don’t do it! Removing them from your social networks will make it much harder to do.

 

 

Expand Your Social Circle, and Possibly Your Career

Also, if you are young and can afford to find a new part-time job, then do so. A nice change of scenery and routine will help cast the illusion that things are better. The effort to move forward in life and create major changes to your job and circle of friends will help motivate you to become the person you want to be.

 

Image result for expand your social circle

 

Building off of what I just said, you should also find new friends. Now hold on! Before you call bullshit and close your Internet browser, hear me out. If you have friends that are exclusively your friends, who will stick by YOU and not your ex, then keep them.

However, if you had mutual friends, then you might want to consider distancing yourself from them. After all, your friends won’t be courteous enough to plan out every “hang out” so that you and your ex aren’t invited to the same event. Not saying that they are bad friends, just that it is not their obligation to ensure this doesn’t happen. How awkward would that be to get invited to a party, movie, or some other event by one of your friends, only to run into your ex when you arrive? Remember, you can always find new friends. And the ones that can’t choose you over the ex are probably not worth being friends with anyway.

 

 

Final Thoughts

So there you go. Those are my tips on how to get over a long-term relationship. Once again, not all of these will work for everyone. You have to choose which ones feel most natural to you. Maybe you don’t want to get a new job, and that’s fine. Maybe you really do want to be left alone, and that’s okay too.

Just remember that all things heal in time. So, cheer up, because there really are plenty of fish in the sea. And I know it hurts now, but eventually you will look back at all of this and laugh.

Use this time as an opportunity to work on yourself. Make new friends, work on personal goals, and play some damn video games if you want! It takes work to be happy and to get over that long-term relationship, but when you finally do…you’ll wish it would happen again. No I’m just kidding! But honestly, at least you will be wiser from your experiences and you’ll know how to handle it if or when it happens again.

How to Make Your Man More Romantic

How to Make Your Man More Romantic

 

 

Sick of pining for a really romantic holiday because your guy just doesn’t get it? You are not alone. Many women long for romance but are with men who just doesn’t have a clue how to be romantic.

The thought of romance may trigger sadness and regret at the kind of relationship you’d like to have, but don’t. It may cause you to feel nostalgic for earlier times in your relationship when your partner swept you off your feet, but that doesn’t happen anymore.

If it seems to you that there is no romance in your love relationship or marriage, this could be a cause of bitterness within you and conflict between you and your mate.

 

Romance is Subjective

Men and women certainly have differing definitions about what is sexy or romantic. Generally speaking, women’s sexual fantasies tend to be filled with more romantic interludes then do men’s. Many women find a candlelit bubble bath or spontaneous picnic at dusk to be a great way to get in the mood sexually, as well as a way to express and share their love. This desire for romance begins in girlhood when young women are entranced by the promise of Prince Charming coming to life.

For boys (and later, men), their sexual fantasies tend to focus more directly on sex without all those romantic frills. So it’s not that he loves you less than you love him; it may just be that his expression of love excludes that prelude of chocolate and roses. Another point to consider: Some men have a harder time expressing their deeper emotional feelings, and fear feeling vulnerable if they do.

So now you know why trying to get romance out of your guy is like trying to get blood from a stone. But this doesn’t mean you are stuck with that.

Most women in this situation never say anything to their guy about their need for romance. They figure it won’t help, or they are afraid of expressing their desire for romance, or they fear being rejected or embarrassed in some way.

Also, some women think that romance is only “valid” if it’s a surprise or if it arrives from him without prompting, and if they have to ask for the attention, then the romance is destroyed. All of these excuses prevent you from improving the situation, and they leave him digging himself a deeper and deeper hole.

 

 

Teaching Your Man About Romance

 

 

Romance, Like Most Things, Can be Taught

We ALL learn things by someone telling us how it works, why it works, showing us how they do it and then offering positive reinforcement for doing it ourselves.

Here are some steps you can take to make romance bloom more easily between the two of you:

 

 

Spell It Out

He isn’t a mind reader, so he may not even know what you find romantic! If you just say “do something romantic,” he may feel overwhelmed or insecure and end up doing nothing. Or you could wind up with beer and pretzels, watching football on TV. Be specific — for example, say to him: “It would be really romantic if we could have strawberries and champagne by candlelight while I’m in some pretty new robe that you get me.”

 

Drop Gift Hints

When it comes to presents, it is still very reasonable to tell him what you want (“I think a bracelet would be so romantic. I just love turquoise stones, don’t you?”). If you can’t bear to do that, try putting a little note on his pillow that says: “I really love surprises but am kind of hoping for some earrings this year.” If you trust a girlfriend enough, ask her to call him and tell him what you have been pining for.

Ask for simple things: Don’t ask for expensive gifts or items that are hard to size. And if you have children, don’t bring them into it, because they might end up feeling responsible for your romantic happiness — which is not a good place to be.

 

Be a Role Model

Romance is a two-way street. Be romantic yourself all year long if you want him to be, too. Little gestures go a long way: Touch his face tenderly, spontaneously hug and kiss him while you are out, give him unsolicited massages or put love notes in his briefcase. Even reminiscing about wonderful times you have had together is romantic. As he enjoys these gestures, he will be moved to reply in kind.

 

Be Revealing

If you open up to him, you will create instant intimacy. Try telling him something personal about yourself and your feelings, and ask him then to tell you something in return. This will bring you closer and also decrease his fears of romance. You could trade sexual fantasies, tell each other what you like in bed, or just reveal something that scares you or you have always dreamed of doing. Also, you might try dancing! This a great way to be romantic and intimate at the same time.

 

Give Him Positive Reinforcement

He wants to love you and feel close to you, but he needs to see that romancing you will further his goals. So after you tell him what to do, give him feedback. Tell him how much you liked it, what a turn-on it was, how much you appreciate his doing it and how you really hope he does it again soon — hopefully before next Valentine’s Day.

 

 

Final Thoughts

While it’s helpful to know how you want to be loved, try to be flexible too. Be willing to communicate to your partner what feels romantic to you, but don’t go so far as to dictate or micro-manage a romantic experience that your mate might be trying to provide for you.

It can be a bit of a balancing act. Follow the tips above, give information about what your preferences are,  and invite yourself to appreciate the efforts that your partner is putting into loving you and making you feel special– in his unique way.

Receive the love that’s being offered to you…even if it comes in a slightly different “package” then you had in mind. This will open the door to even more romance to come.

Are You Dating a Narcissist?

Are You Dating a Narcissist?

 

 

 

Don’t Ignore the Red Flags!

Image result for red flags

 

People are drawn to narcissists because they can be charming and charismatic. In fact, one study showed that their likable veneer was only penetrable after seven meetings. 

Many people find that courtship with their narcissistic partner was wonderful, but abuse soon followed.  With greater insight, however, most people would probably admit that there were signs that were overlooked.

 

 

 

Check Your Blind Spots

 

There are unconscious explanations why you might attracted to a narcissist. Here are some reasons why you might not recognize a narcissist:

 

Image result for love is blind

 

Sexual attraction

The greater the physical attraction and sexual intensity, the easier it is to ignore red flags. Individuals who can see auras maintain that sexual energy literally obfuscates mental and emotional energy — why lust is blind.

 

Seduction

Narcissists are skilled manipulators. Some can be quite seductive, and not just sexually. They may be adept listeners and communicators or allure you with, flattery, self-disclosure, and vulnerability — just the opposite of what you might expect from a narcissist.

 

Idealization

Often narcissists are very accomplished, successful, good-looking, powerful, and/or multi-talented. It’s easy to idealize them and want to share in the benefits of their exceptionalism, especially if you feel inferior. People with low self-esteem, such as codependents, are more likely to idealize someone they admire. They may be drawn to typical narcissistic traits that they themselves lack, such as power and boldness. The downside is that idealization makes us ignore contrary information.

 

Familiarity

If you had a narcissistic parent, being with a narcissist will feel familiar — like family. This attraction happens beneath consciousness and is often referred to as “chemistry.” With personal therapy, this attraction can change so that you easily spot someone who is abusive or self-centered. You might even be repelled instead of attracted to a narcissist.

 

Codependency

If you have low self-esteem or are codependent, you may be unaware of your feelings, which can guide you. You may not feel entitled to respect and having your needs and wants met. Most codependents tend to accommodate and people-please other people — a perfect fit for a narcissist. This predisposition is stronger in early dating when you’re trying to make a good impression. Thus, you might overlook or rationalize feelings of discomfort and anxiety that signal trouble. If something does bother you, you won’t speak up about it and try to forget it.

 

 

Watch For the Red Flags

 

Self Centeredness

For narcissists, the world revolves around them. Other people are only two-dimensional, meaning that narcissists can’t empathize. They’re in their own reality and see you as an extension of themselves to satisfy their needs and wants.

When you talk to your date, is he or she interested in getting to know you, or talk only about themselves? Amazingly, some people do, as if their listener doesn’t exist. This is a tell-tale sign that you will feel invisible in the relationship. If you felt invisible in your family, you might take this for granted. You could possibly feel validated by the attention you give as a good listener. Beware that this pattern will likely continue.

As mentioned above, some narcissists are skilled communicators and will appear fascinated by you, even mirror your interests to make you like them. They may be good at short-term intimacy and make you feel like a king or queen; but eventually, they don’t keep up that act. You’ll discover that their motive is to get what they want; for example, sex, but that they’re not interested in getting to know more about you, your family, problems, or successes.

Be aware of other signs of lack of consideration: walking far ahead of you, making you track them down for a return phone call, arriving late, disregarding your boundaries and needs, or interrupting conversations to take calls from other people.

 

Arrogance

Narcissists feel superior to other people, and can be rude or abusive when don’t get what they want. This is revealed in their behavior and how they talk about themselves and others.

Is your date a fault-finder who criticizes or blames others, the opposite sex, or an ex? One day he or she may be bashing you. When you go out, notice how he or she treats waitresses, car hops, and vendors. Does he or she show other people respect, or act superior to other certain groups, such as minorities, immigrants, or people of less means or education?

Narcissists like to be associated with high-status people and institutions. They think they’re the best and want to surround themselves with the best. This is due to insecurity. Does your date think only his or her school is the best, and require the best car, the best table at the best restaurant, the finest wines, and wear expensive labels, or name drop public figures they know? This may impress you, but will later depress you when you feel ignored or like a prop in their life.

 

A Sense of Entitlement

This trait is a give-away. It reveals how narcissists think that they’re the center of the universe. They not only believe they’re special and superior to others, but also that they deserve special treatment and that rules don’t apply to them.

Does your date refuse to turn off  his or her cell phone at the movies, expect others to do favors, cut in line, steal things like tableware, airline blankets, or hotel ashtrays, or insist on special treatment from the parking attendant, restaurant maitre d’, or waiter? If you’re a woman, does he expect you to drive to his neighborhood? A relationship with this person will be painfully one-sided, not a two-way street.

Narcissists are only interested in getting what they want and making the relationship work for them.

 

Bragging

Although because narcissists want to believe they’re superior and the best, they’re actually insecure. Hence, they need constant validation, appreciation, and recognition.

They seek this by bragging about themselves and their accomplishments. They may even lie or exaggerate. People who brag are trying to convince themselves and you of their greatness.

 

 

Control and Manipulation

Narcissists put their needs first. They may manipulate you with flattery, belittling, or threats. Their lack empathy may show when planning a date. Time and place might be a difficult negotiation or on their terms, especially if they sense that you’re interested in them.

Initially, they may want to please you to win you over, but once they’ve made their “catch,” they want to please themselves. It’s the chase, not the catch that motivates them. Once they’re victorious, they can lose interest, and move on to the next conquest before it gets too emotionally intimate. If not, they’ll be emotionally unavailable and keep you at a distance, because they’re afraid if you get too close, you won’t like what you see.

 

 

Final Thoughts

Listen to what your dates say about themselves and past relationships. Do they take responsibility or blame other people? Pay attention if they admit to serious shortcomings, commitment issues, infidelity, criminality, addiction, or abuse. Equally important, notice if you feel anxious or uncomfortable, pressured, controlled, ignored, or belittled.

Find out about narcissistic relationships, why narcissists are codependent, and why they’re drawn to codependents and vice versa. In recovering from codependency, you’ll build self-esteem, your estimation of your worth will rise, and you’ll expect to be considered, listened to, and treated well. You’ll convey an expectation of respect by maintaining healthy boundaries, by being assertive about your opinions, feelings, needs, and wants, rather than people-pleasing.

Preparing Yourself For a Psychic Reading

How to Prepare Yourself for a Psychic Reading

 

 

Approach your reading in a way that will help you get the most benefit.

 

So you’ve been thinking about getting a psychic reading?

If you’ve never had a reading before then like most you’re probably a bit on the skeptical side while at the same time nervous about who and what will come through. There are a few things you can do to prepare for your first psychic reading and a few things you can expect!

A psychic reading is not something that you should go into on a whim. Rather, you should spend some time before your reading preparing yourself emotionally and spiritually for the experience ahead of you. One element of this preparation is coming up with questions that you would like to ask the psychic or psychic medium.

This clarifies your expectations and your motivations for the reading, but also helps to structure the reading so you can get more meaning out of it. Knowing what questions to ask and how to ask them helps you to approach your reading in a way that will help you get the most benefit.

 

 

Ask Your Psychic The Right Questions

 

Avoid Overly Simplified Questions

While you should expect to answer questions that are asked by your psychic or psychic medium with a simple “yes” or “no” in order to avoid sharing too much information, these are the types of questions that you should avoid asking during your reading. Not only do these overly simplified questions give you very little in terms of qualification of the reader’s abilities, but they can also create even more questions than you already have. Getting a “yes” or “no” answer leaves you wondering why that is the answer you got, or worried because it wasn’t the answer you wanted, or falsely comforted by getting the answer you wanted without knowing the important reasons behind it.

Your questions should be open-ended to encourage a more detailed answer that allows you to interpret intuited information. The answers should not be a firm end, but rather an opportunity for you to explore concepts and ideas. When asking your reader questions remember that the purpose of your reading is to guide you, not to tell you what to do or why.

 

Don’t Look for Specifics

While a psychic or psychic medium may have heightened abilities to sense or predict things, they cannot truly tell you the specifics of how your life will unfold. Asking questions that are “when”, “where”, or “who” motivated will only leave you with an unsatisfying answer that could cause you to make decisions you wouldn’t generally make just because you were trying to fulfill the predictions in a way that you want.

For example, if you ask how you are going to meet your future spouse, your reader could be able to tell you that you will meet at work. This answer, however, could leave out the important information that you will be changing jobs, that your future spouse isn’t going to be a coworker, or that you will hate him upon first meeting.

 

Focus on Your Behaviors

Rather than looking for simple answers or being told exactly what you should do, focus on questions that guide your behaviors. Utilizing your own perceptions and intuitions is always better than relying solely on the advice or perceptions of a psychic or psychic medium. This allows you to develop your life based on your own needs and feelings rather than forcing decisions and situations based on answers that are up for interpretation.

 

 

You Hold the Power

 

Regardless of what anyone says, psychic or not, we have the power over our own future. The decisions we make and our actions sum up for what will happen to us, and there is no one who can say otherwise.

Even though it may seem that visiting a psychic reader means giving up control over ourselves and the future, it isn’t the case. In fact, what these readings may help us is to find our path, release any unpleasant incidents that may have occurred in the past, and look forward to a brighter future. This is why,it is important to be sure whether you are ready for a reading.

 

 

Do’s and Don’ts for Your Psychic Reading

 

Dos…

» Keep a clear head. Leave all your worries at home, think positive, and don’t put too much pressure on yourself. The magic in all of this is that your positive belief towards life, yourself, and the unknown future. I know that many times, thinking positive is out of the question, but that doesn’t mean you have to bring negative thoughts to upset yourself and affect the decisions you make. Remember, there are “possibilities” in “impossibilities”.

 

» Have your questions ready before you visit the reader. You don’t want to be at loss of words during your session because you’ll only be wasting your and the psychic’s time. A good way to be prepared is to write the questions / concerns on index cards, so you don’t get flustered and forget why you visited the psychic in the first place.

 

» Remember, psychic readings take time and can leave you feeling vulnerable and emotional. So if you can, schedule your appointment on the day when you don’t have a lot to do, work or at home. After the reading, you should try to find some alone time and think about what the reading said, and you can incorporate it into your life.

 

» Clarify any doubts you may have. It’s better that all your concerns and queries be cleared at the reading. Spending unnecessary time and money on the same questions is pointless. You don’t want to dwell on the same issue(s) again and again.

 

Don’ts…

» Expect that the psychic will make the decisions for you. What a psychic does is give you a brief look at what you can expect in the future, if you made certain decisions. If you are looking to seek advice as to what you should do about a particular situation, then you’re taking this whole thing in the wrong light. What you should expect are insights, guidance, and information that can help you make a better decision. You are commander of your life, no one else.

 

» Keep quiet and wait around during your session. If the psychic is giving some information about yourself, your past, or anything that is vital, do let him/her know. If there are any discrepancies, don’t just sit there and let the psychic move on. The reading is for your benefit and you want to make sure that you get the most out of it. There can be times when the psychic might go to a different path, talk about some other topics that he/she may feel are critical and strong enough to talk about. Don’t take this as the wrong thing and see to it that your questions are being addressed.

 

» Visit a psychic if you are going there just to prove them wrong. This will accomplish nothing. Many times, people who are skeptic towards psychic reading tend to withhold information about themselves and want to see if the psychic can somehow know it. You are spending your money and time (also the psychic’s) for the session.

 

» Take any alcohol or drugs before your reading. It is advised that you are absolutely sober, for at least 12 hours before your reading. If you want your psychic to read you properly and accurately, nothing should hinder it; you need to have a clear mind.

 

While understanding and knowing how to prepare for a psychic reading, rest assured that whatever happens during a reading, it will remain confidential. So, even if there are certain things you and the psychic talked about, may be embarrassing or you would like to keep to yourself, you don’t have to worry about the information leaking out.

If you are confused about what questions to ask the psychic reader, focus on what you want out of your life. Are there any issues regarding work, home, love life, or finding a spiritual path. When you think in these terms, searching and discovering answers will be much simpler.

 

 

Examples of General Questions

 

Here are some general questions on general topics such as life, relationship, finance and work that you may want to use in order to help you formulate furthers that will delve deeper into such topics.  Remember that these questions are meant to serve as jump points for discussion, and will help your intuitive zone in and focus on one specific aspect of your life.

 

  • Why am I not happy with my life?

 

  • How can I live a better life, full of purpose and happiness?

  • How will I improve my health?

 

  • What are the things that I should consider dropping, as they are very stressful to me?

 

  • What do I need to do in order to balance my health, mind and spirit better?

 

If you have other concerns and questions that aren’t on the list, feel free to add it to the list of questions that you want to ask your psychic.

 

 

Final Thoughts

There are many very good, ethical, fair, and honest mediums and psychics, and the service which they can render to the seeking soul is, truly, priceless; but you’re reading will be more satisfying if you do your part to prepare your emotions and your questions.

Getting on the road to making yourself a better person is the first step to improving your situation and views, so it’s great that you’re taking steps to self-improvement.

Over 40 and Looking for Love

Over 40 and Looking for Love?

 

 

Drop the Excuses to Find the  Wonderful Relationship You Deserve

 

If you are a single woman over 40, you have a love history. You’ve been in relationships before and you may want one now, but for whatever reason you haven’t found the right person yet.

Maybe you’re divorced and frustrated with dating or haven’t ventured back out to the dating pool. You could be a widow and unsure of ever finding another man like your husband. Perhaps you were in a live-in or long-term relationship that ended, so you’re single again.

Finding love the second time around (or even the first) is not easy. Still, people fall in love every day and many of my clients do find that loving man. So what’s the problem?

This might seem harsh, but you are likely telling yourself several lies about love after 40 that are hurting you. These negative beliefs prevent you from connecting, or worse, stop you from even looking.

You might have limiting ideas about dating, love and men, and it’s time to them turn things around. If you expose and transform those beliefs, opportunities will be created for you to find love again!

 

 

Limiting Beliefs: Are These Lies Stuck in Your Head?

 

All The Good Men Are Taken

This belief is very common.  However, thinking about this statistically, there just has to be good single men available since half the adult population in the U.S. is single.

Men get divorced for the same reason women do; they grew apart from their wives, their wives cheated or circumstances just changed. Some men had their heart broken earlier in life and are just recovering and ready now. There are lots of reasons why good men are single and looking for a woman like you.

The fact is that now, more than any other time in history, there are a lot of people in their 40s, 50s and 60s who are single and looking for love. So don’t believe that there are no good men out there!

 

I’ve Already Had My One Shot at Love

Widows often believe this, particularly if they had a wonderful relationship with their husbands. They come away thinking that they will never find such a good man again. But this is exactly the reason why it is possible; if you found great love once, you can certainly do it again. You have the track record for success. Consider your circumstances differently and recognize that you are a magnet for love, since your energy is filled with loving thoughts from your past.

 

Looking For Love is Too Much Work

Dating is tough and you may reach a point when you feel that it is too exhausting and too much effort. But that feeling is just a symptom of your belief that you don’t think it’s possible to find love.

On the other hand, if you really believe that you will find love, then you know every man you meet brings you one step closer to finding the right man for you. Remind yourself that you are on the path to find love and nothing was going to get in your way.  Dating is a process. Be in it to win to find the love you deserve.

 

I’m Picky About Looks

If you feel this way, you will surely be single for a long time! After 40, the chances of Mr. Right knocking on your door are zero. You are going to have to get off the couch and do your part to cross paths with lots of men.

Image result for looking for romance

Dating is a numbers game so the more men you meet, the better your chances for finding the love you want. Will every man you meet be perfect? Of course not! Most of the men you meet will not be right. But you don’t need them to be because you only need one.

In addition, no man is perfect (and neither are you). The perfect man does not exist; he is a myth and a fairy tale. However, there is a man who is the right one for you.

Get over this idea of perfection or you will stay single.

 

You Compare Men to Your BFFs

Seriously? How could a man ever compare to your girlfriends?

Men are not like women! They are dramatically different. We are not brought up the same, we have different innate skill sets and our brains are wired differently. We may be equals, but that does not make us the same.

Expecting a man to be like your girlfriends means he is bound to fail. Most men will never be as thoughtful or have the same depth of understanding as your girlfriends. That doesn’t mean, however, that men don’t have their own amazing contribution to make to your life. The right man expands and enhances your life in ways your girlfriends never will. My advice is to let go of this idea, because it will prevent you from finding the love you want.

 

You Don’t Trust Men

Women who have been burned by a man (or know people who have) tend to believe this, which is understandable.

Consider whether it can really be true that all men are like this. Mathematically, it is just not possible. There are definitely men who do not cheat, lie or refuse to settle down. Many women have found a fabulous, moral guy, who is not like that.

When you believe that all men are terrible, you will look for evidence that your viewpoint is correct. If you believe men are wonderful, you will see examples to support that.

Start looking for examples of quality men and you will notice that they are all around you.

 

 

 

There Aren’t Any Interesting Men (You Can’t be Serious!)

If you haven’t met any interesting men, then you aren’t out there actually meeting men!  Also, many women find nice men to be boring and bad boys to be interesting. Yes, a bad boy’s unpredictable and aloof personality does make him intriguing and you want to unravel the mystery. He becomes a challenge for you to win over. However, a bad boy won’t change his stripes for you and won’t be good relationship material. If you insist on dating bad boys, count on heartbreak and torturous love affairs that do not satisfy.

 

There Aren’t Any Single Men Around

This is similar to the lie that all the good men are taken but with a local spin. Granted, some areas do have more married than single people. But overall, 50% of adult Americans are not hitched, so they must live near you, too.  Your pessimism may have diminished your ability to notice men.

 

Men Don’t Really Want to Be in a Relationship

Let’s refer to the lie about all men being liars, cheaters and players; obviously, generalizations don’t hold much water. While not all men want a long-term relationship, there are certainly some who do.

If you want love, you need to do your part to meet plenty of men and screen them. One way to know if a man is serious about finding love is the way he talks about his life and dating. For example, if the guy you meet mentions moving or how much he loves women, he’s probably not ready settle down. If he says he’s tired of dating, he might be more serious about finding love.

There are definitely men out there who would be thrilled to fall in love with you, but you need to do your part.

 

I Don’t Have Time to Date

This is something women tell themselves constantly. Yes, you are busy. But you make time for what you decide is important.

To find love, you’ll need to make it a priority. Carve time out of your calendar at least once a week to meet new people. If you cannot do that, you don’t really want to find love.

You need to create the space in your schedule to find the love you want. If you say you just don’t have it, I understand. But you also need to admit that love is not a priority for you. There is no shame in that because finding love takes effort and requires a strong desire to take the necessary steps.

 

Get Some Insight

If you’re open to the idea, one of the most important things a psychic can do is help you learn more about yourself, which in turn, will help you be better prepared to look for a mate. Psychics can actually help reveal qualities that you didn’t even know you possessed.

A good psychic can also help you discover what traits in a prospective lover are most important to you, including characteristics that perhaps you never thought about. She can tell you which personality traits will complement your own, and what type of companion will best serve as your other half.

I recommend Psychic Access, because the psychics are all verified and tested, and you can experience a free reading to try it out.

Image result for grief

 

Spiritual mediums help bridge the gap between the living and those who have passed. 

 

There is no emotion as intense and painful as grief. When you lose someone close, feelings of loss, loneliness and despair are beyond anything you have felt before. Grief is primal, raw, rasping and engulfing. Emotions wash over you uncontrollably. One minute you are empty and dead inside. The next you are full of hatred for the illness, accident, perpetrator or old age that took your loved one from you. The intensity takes your breath away. Many people find comfort in the presence and services of a psychic medium;  a psychic reading can help you grieve, and how it can offer you hope… and the strength to keep going.

When we lose a loved one, our lives change. But it doesn’t have to be a long, never ending dark tunnel. After the shock, confusion, surrealism and deep sadness start to lift as we go through the grief process, there can be rejuvenation–a new lease on life. But it’s important to accept that you’re in a new reality and there is a new relationship with your loved one and a new relationship with yourself.

Meeting or speaking to a psychic medium is one way of taking the first few steps toward acceptance. A good psychic or spiritual (the terms are interchangeable) medium helps you understand your loved one is always near. Even though you cannot feel their physical presence, they are with you. Learning you are wrapped in love is comforting beyond measure. Knowing that you will always be connected is so reassuring. Somehow, you receive the strength to carry on with your life and even begin to feel good about it.

 

 

 

When is the Right Time for a Psychic Reading?

 

It’s best to wait a little while before contacting a psychic reader. At the very beginning, you might feel you need to cling to some remnant or spirit of the one who has died. Yet, now, you may not be able to listen to the message. Give it some time – how long is dependent upon how you are feeling. Once you feel ready to make contact, you will know it.

If you can wait until the rawness and shock that comes from a death has settled a little then you and the spirit communicator will be able to build a much more stable bridge of love between the two worlds and the medium’s work will be much more accurate and evidential. Try to wait at least three months before setting out on your spiritual quest. And remember that sometimes it can take a long time to get the absolute proof you need that life continues after death but persevere as you will eventually get the comforting proof you need.

One thing you shouldn’t do is become addicted to psychic readings. Some people live their lives through readings and become completely immersed in the spirit world. They are wholly focused on their next ‘fix’. Unless you are a medium yourself, you should avoid this. You still have a life to live in this world.

In the same vein, you should also avoid hopping from one psychic to another. Each will have their own style and you could become confused and disillusioned. Create a good relationship with one, possibly two, but no more than that.

 

 

 

Frequency of Readings

 

If you are wanting to touch base with your loved one; making sure all is well with them, once or twice a year is fine. Of course, it depends on the individual. Some have written books and websites about their experiences with the psychic world, so are happy to have an ongoing dialogue. As long as it doesn’t become an addiction, as described above, there’s no problem in keeping in touch as necessary.

Anniversaries, Christmas, birthdays and Valentines are good occasions to have a psychic reading. But don’t book a reading for someone else because you think it will make a great surprise gift for them. It may well be exactly what they want, but do ask them first.

 

 

 

Steps to Ease Your Spirit As You Grieve

 

Surrender

We can’t control the fact that we’ve lost someone we love. And we can’t bring them back. But we can move forward into a more peaceful state of being. Surrendering is letting go of the pain (even for a moment) so you can live in the present. It knows that something bigger than ourselves is protecting us.

Whenever you feel that wave of grief, surrender to it. When you’re overwhelmed, see the word “surrender” in your mind’s eye. Say, “I surrender” to yourself.  This will act as a reminder to let go for a moment.

 

Forgive Yourself

You may have guilt around your loved one’s death. You may feel responsible, blaming yourself for not doing enough. We must remember that this was their life’s path. To move through the grief it is important to forgive yourself so you can free yourself to heal.

 

Connect With Your Loved Ones

If you are open to the idea that their spirit is alive, there are many ways to connect with your loved one. Going to a Spiritual Medium is a great way to do that. Many have found solace in the messages they receive from their loved one on the “other side.” 

You can also connect with them on your own, in your daily life. The key is to send them love and light energy. As you heal yourself through the grieving process you may find a deeper connection to your loved one. There may be signs and messages that occur. Stay open and aware. Talk to your loved one. They want to connect with you if your heart is open.

 

Nurture Yourself

It is so important to take care of yourself. Take time to take care of YOU. Remember you are still here and there is life ahead of you. There is joy to be experienced. Do the things that make you the happiest right now. Even if it’s something small like going for a walk, watching a favorite movie over and over, or making your favorite dish and eating it with a loved one.

 

Meditate

There is nothing more powerful we can do than meditation. It quiets the mind, energizes the soul and creates a more peaceful state of being. It can be the anchor that gets you through your day. Find a meditation that works for you. From Passage Meditation to Transcendental Meditation. Try and practice it every day even if it’s for a few minutes. Start with 5 or 10 minutes. And work up to longer sessions or more frequent sessions.

 

Dream of Them

When you go to sleep ask your loved one to visit you in your dreams. Think about them. Send them love. It is thought that when we dream of our loved ones who have passed on, it is their way of communicating with us.

 

Create

Keep a journal, write and recite poetry, paint a picture, take a photograph, make jewelry, sculpt, sing, act, even create a memory book of your loved one. Whatever your creative passion or interest is, tap into it. Even if it’s a very small creative project. Creating connects us to our deeper selves. That’s where the healing is.

 

Garden

Gardening is giving life. The process of watering and nurturing is healing. Watching a plant or a garden grow will create a peaceful state of mind. You can even grow your loved one’s favorite plant of flower. Talk to your loved one while you are gardening. Feel their presence.

 

Exercise

When we exercise, it releases endorphins, which expedites feelings of happiness. Find an exercise you love to do. The deep breathing associated with exercise can also release pent up sadness and trigger tears that need to come out. It’s a healthy sign to emote and can help get you through the grieving process.

 

Ritualize

Creating ritual around the memory of a loved one is a powerful way to keep them with us. After all, that’s what most of us want. We miss them. We want to feel their presence. The ritual can be whatever you want it to be. It can be an altar-like corner in your home. Or you can create an “active altar” by doing an activity as you remember them. Perhaps something they loved to do. Or you both loved to do together.

 

Pray

Asking for guidance and support is important now. Prayer is a powerful way to attain that. Remember when you pray, don’t just say words in a rote fashion, feel your feelings. That is where the power is. Just the practice of saying a prayer can help navigate your grieving because it is an action step and a tool toward healing.

 

Get Support

Getting outside help from bereavement groups and therapists is important and can help you deal with the stages of grief. It’s especially important if you find yourself in an ongoing depression. This is a fragile time and it’s essential that you seek the help you need.

 

Final Thoughts

You will never “get over” the loss (don’t let anyone tell you that you will). This is an experience that will live with you for the rest of your life. But you can take this difficult time and create a positive outcome. You can find a way to put your loss and the memory of your loved in a special place in your heart that you carry with you from this moment on.

To move beyond your grief can be a journey of self-discovery– to see yourself and your life in a new way. But, the way to move through and beyond the grief process requires that you are open and that you take action.

Remember. This is YOUR journey. This is a time to explore who YOU are. The grief you are experiencing does ease with time. And take all the time you need to get through this life challenge. Be gentle with yourself. Surround yourself with positive, loving people and great experiences. And you may find that your heart has opened to a wonderful new life as you carry the memory of your loved one forever.

An Overview of Popular Diets

An Overview of Popular Diets

(Which One Is Right For YOU?)

 

 

 

 

Let’s get right to it, shall we? …

 

 

The High Protein Diet

 

The high-protein diet belongs to the group of the most common diet choices for both bodybuilding and weight loss. Protein is one of three macronutrients, along with carbs and fat, that our body requires to stay healthy and maintain weight.

The body needs protein for many processes and it is the main component of muscles, bones, hair and skin.

 

Important Points:

 

Promotes Appetite Suppression And Fullness – Consumption of protein suppresses hunger and appetite for hours after eating, thus helping you prevent overeating which would eventually lead to weight gain.

It is also important to mention that protein increases production of hormones such as PYY and GLP-1, both of which make you feel full. Protein decreases levels of ghrelin, which is known as hunger hormone.

 

Increases Metabolism – High protein intake can also increase the number of calories you burn, thus further your weight loss. A study from the Journal of the American College of Nutrition  found that protein digestion boosts metabolic rate by 20% to 35%, which is truly impressive.

 

Fat Loss And Body Composition – Fat that accumulates in our body is stubborn, especially in the abdominal area, and it is difficult to get rid of fat deposits. A high-protein diet is well-known for its ability to induce fat loss. A growing body of evidence confirms that increased protein intake promotes fat and weight loss.

For example, a six-month study that included 65 overweight and obese women revealed that high-protein group lost 43% more weight than the high-carb group. Also, 35% of women from high-protein group lost at least 22 lbs or 10kg.

Not only does high-protein diet promote weight loss, but it doesn’t lead to a loss of muscle mass, which is beneficial for body composition

The precise protein intake is a matter of many debates. Typically, consumption of 0.6 to 0.75 grams of protein per pound of body weight (1.2 – 1.6 grams per kilograms) promotes weight/fat loss while preventing loss of muscle mass.

Strive to include both animal- and plant-based sources of protein into your diet and focus on high-quality sources of the macronutrient. Don’t forget to meet your daily fiber intake (25-35 grams) to promote digestion and prevent constipation.

 

Example: High Protein Diet: High Protein Everyday Meals for Metabolism Boos and Weight Loss

 

 

The Low Carb Diet

 

A low-carb diet is an eating pattern that limits intake of carbohydrates usually found in fruit, starchy vegetables, and grains. While reducing the consumption of carbs, this diet plan emphasizes intake of foods that are high in protein and healthy fat.

People usually opt for a low-carb diet in order to lose weight by restricting intake of certain foods (carbs) or they want to change their bad eating habits. Like high-protein, low-carb diet belongs to the group of flexible eating patterns and there’s no some specific meal plan you should follow other than adjusting intake of macronutrients.

Of course, it’s needless to mention you should avoid junk and sugary food, that’s implied. That being said, there some structured programs which are based on a low-carb approach to weight loss, such as the Atkins diet.

A study from the New England Journal of Medicine enrolled 62 participants who were randomized either to the low-carb or low-fat group. Scientists discovered that low-carb group lost more weight compared to the low-fat group with ratio 7.3% vs. 4.5% of the total body weight respectively.

The journal Nutrition and Metabolism published a study which found that participants from low-carb group lost more weight than their counterparts from the low-fat group, especially men.

What’s more, weight loss for persons from the low-carb group was significant despite the fact they consumed more calories than participants who adhered to a low-fat diet.

 

Example: Living Low Carb: Controlled-Carbohydrate Eating for Long-Term Weight Loss

 

 

The Biggest Loser Diet

 

You’ve probably watched the reality show Biggest Loser or at least you’ve heard of it. This diet was created to help you shed weight just like participants on the show. It belongs to the group of structured plans with specific meal programs and portion sizes.

The Biggest Loser Diet involves intake of small, but frequent meals which usually consist of protein, low-fat dairy or soy, whole grains, fruits, vegetables, beans, and nuts. The diet also requires regular exercise.

The reason why this diet works is simple – it combines all factors that are essential for successful weight loss (portion control, healthy food choices, and regular physical activity). It is also important to mention that Biggest Loser Diet isn’t a food deprivation program, you’ll eat three meals and two snacks a day and it isn’t a temporary diet fad.

 

Example: The Biggest Loser: 6 Weeks to a Healthier You; Lose Weight and Get Healthy for Life!

 

 

The Mediterranean Diet

 

The Mediterranean Diet is considered one of the healthiest eating patterns in the world. It’s not a program that you follow for a specific time, but a way of life.

You see, the Mediterranean diet refers to the way people from Mediterranean area eat. This diet is known for the fact it doesn’t involve restrictions or eliminations of certain food groups and it is incredibly beneficial for heart health.

 

 

As mentioned above, there is no specific program that you follow here, just some simple guidelines. You should increase consumption of fruits, vegetables, olive oil, nuts, seeds, legumes, potatoes, whole grains, herbs, spices, fish, and seafood.

Eat in moderation foods such as poultry, eggs, cheese, and yogurt. Red meat is allowed but reduce consumption to once a week. The only thing you should avoid is consumption of junk food, sugar-sweetened beverages, added sugar, and processed foods and meats.

Does Mediterranean diet help weight loss? Sure; this diet plan is beneficial for the entire health and your weight is not an exception. One study showed that low-carb and Mediterranean diets are effective and safe alternatives to the low-fat diet for successful weight loss.  One caveat, though:  you still have to watch your calories in order to lose weight.

The Weight Watchers Diet

 

The goal of Weight Watchers Diet is to lose weight while living healthier and it promises you’ll drop two pounds per week. This diet plan uses a point system to encourage followers to opt for healthy, filling foods that will help you slim down without harming your health.

In this diet plan, no foods are forbidden. Basically, Weight Watchers assigns points to different foods. The healthy options carry more points while unhealthier options carry low points. You want to collect as many points as possible and while doing that, you are changing your eating habits and slimming down.

The program is designed to ease the process of changing your diet for long-term weight loss. Following this diet plan allows you to tweak bad habits and create new, healthy ones. At the same time, you learn how to shop for healthy food, cook, and dine out without undermining weight loss.

A Vegan Diet

 

Veganism isn’t just about celebrity trends and following a certain program for a while, it should be an important part of your lifestyle based on natural and healthy plant-based food sources.

The vegan diet promotes weight loss due to high fiber intake. As you already know, fiber is necessary for healthy digestion and it suppresses your appetite, thus making you full for longer. At the same time, vegan diet plans also deliver an abundance of much-needed nutrients that protect your health too.

While some people do follow this diet successfully, the truth is that this is a very restrictive diet, and it can be quite challenging.

 

Example: The Vegan Way: 21 Days to a Happier, Healthier Plant-Based Lifestyle That Will Transform Your Home, Your Diet, and You

 

 

Weight Loss Supplements

 

Weight loss pills are some of the most popular supplements on the market. They usually contain a natural formula that speeds up metabolism suppress a user’s appetite, and supports a healthy weight loss. The question is, do they help?

Bearing in mind that most people struggle to reduce food intake, especially if they got used to overeating, yes, weight loss pills can help. Whichever diet plan you follow, appetite control is essential to long term weight loss. Meals should not be skipped, but they do need to be controlled, and that’s easier said than done.  

That being said, you should avoid a common pitfall for many dieters – relying on pills only.

It’s not uncommon for both men and women to take weight loss pills without making any changes in their diet or physical activity.

Weight loss pills and supplements are formulated to act as a complementary tool i.e. to support your weight loss endeavor.  They help you reach your target weight at a faster rate, but this also involves making some effort.

If you’re considering using weight loss pills, you should still combine them with diet plan of your choice and exercise routine.

When purchasing these products you should read the label to ensure ingredients actually provide benefits for weight loss.

Avoid buying items produced by unreliable manufacturers and always make sure there is a money back guarantee.  I  found the program products offered through HCG Triumph to really helped me conquer my ferocious appetite.  I particularly relied on the HCG Triumph 26.

 

 

Final Thoughts

Weight loss is a very common goal, and slimming down isn’t a mission impossible! The reason we tend to struggle is usually due to the wrong diet plan.

Ideally, you should go on the diet that you can easily incorporate into your lifestyle and follow even after you lose weight. With strong willpower and eyes set on the goal, you’ll slim down faster than you expected.

Remember that what works best for me (HCG Triumph), or your best friend, may not match your own goals and preferences.  Always use your own goals and preferences as your guideposts.

Now, get to work!
