The empath’s journey is the adventure of a lifetime. Sensitive people have much to be grateful for. You are able to experience exquisite passion and joy. You can perceive the big picture on a deep level. You are attuned to the beauty, poetry, and energy of life, and your compassion gives you the capacity to help others

Treehugger: Blind and Deaf Puppy Gleefully Explores the World
She lost the genetic lottery but is happy about everything in life.

Wise Woman Herbal Ezine: What’s in a Belly?
Your Authentic Voice
by Lisa Sarasohn
When you’re speaking your gut truth, you’re practicing the ancient art of ventriloquy. “Ventriloquy” means, literally, speaking from your belly, voicing the language of your venter: ventri-loquy. Venter is a word of Latin derivation meaning “belly,” “womb,” and “woman as birth-giver.”

“What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.”
— Abraham H. Maslow
STOP AND PAY ATTENTION! Set an intention to be more aware. Become a watcher, of yourself and what’s around you. Develop the witness, the part of you that can step back from life and impartially observe how you react and think and feel. We learn so much about who we are!
“Knowing others is wisdom; knowing the self is enlightenment.”

“However deep our devotion may be to parents, or to children, it is our contemporaries alone with whom understanding is instinctive and entire.”
-Vera Britain, Testament of Youth (1933)
Some people say that we can’t choose our parents or our children, but we can choose our friends. I don’t know if that is entirely true. I think there is some reason we have the family that we have, either by divine agreement or for learning purposes. I also think that our friends are our friends for a reason, too. We’re making choices all the time, and our friends are making choices, too. And somehow, those choices brought us together. And because we are brought together, we grow. We experience more of what life is about. Understanding is huge! To find a friend who truly understands is a magnificent gift.

Daily Tarot: The Star
Despite any confusion of the day, you’ll be the calm and serene center of any activities. Your calmness will be contagious, too, so look forward to being surrounded by people who want to cooperate with you and be helpful before being directly asked. Take your calm state of mind into the evening, rest well, and see how much you can take with you into tomorrow.
