Question of the Day: “Why am I in such a terrible, horrible mood?”

My day is being rocked by my inability to stay grounded. If last week was a unladen trip through establishing “joy” in my day and in my career, then today feels like a field filled with landmines. Everywhere I turn, I can only see things that irritate me. My students are driving me crazy, though…

Question of the Day: “How do I bring joy to my classroom?”

In recent weeks, I came to a sudden realization. If I wanted to feel joy while I am teaching, I need to bring joy to my classroom. For many months, I have been unhappy at my job. My disconnect has disrupted my life in a way that was uncomfortable. Every time I wished for something…

Question of the Day: “Am I a medium?”

In a previous post, I wrote about my thoughts and feelings about being a medium. As an Empath, I am constantly picking up the vibes from people around me. Engage me in a conversation, and your feelings course through me and my mind is filled with words, images, and connections that are not mine. People…

Question of the Day: “Where do I go for a miracle?”

Miracles often show up in literature. Characters ask for them. Sometimes they are just divinely given to characters who may or may not be deserving.

In What Feels Like a World Gone Mad, I’m an Educator.

Going to work has been tough. I love my job. It gives me “the feels” everyday, but I am exhausted and burned out like so many educators. But in this moment of what feels like madness, the Universe has sent me light. This morning I received a text from my TA. She is going to…

Question of the Day: “Why am I praying this much this early in the morning?”

They are quickly becoming my number 1 and number 2 reasons for not wanting to come to school. They are late every…

Question of the Day: “What do I do with messages from the other side?”

As an Empath, I often pick up frequencies from those who passed on. It makes sense when you think about. The energy I can feel off the living people around me does not seem to go too far when they move out of this life. I especially sense it with students who have lost parents.…

Question of the Day: “What’s with all of these ladybugs?”

On Sunday, my husband I returned from shopping and were met with the most bizarre thing: ladybugs. There were hundreds of them climbing up the walls and circling our heads. I have never seen anything like this. I have seen a few lady bugs, but they’ve rarely ever been in a swarm. “What can this…

Friendship #101: How to create space like an Empath

My entire life has been filled with friendships. Many of my friendships are more than two decades old. The number of people I hold dear and consider my closest of friends is considerable.

Question of the Day: “What can you take away from Don Miguel Ruiz’s four agreements?”

Today I am thinking heavily about the third agreement: “Don’t make assumptions.” Ruiz writes that we are living in a dream, and we turn this dream into a nightmare every time we assume what others are thinking or feeling about us. Oh, is this so true for me. My empathic abilities, which always enable me…
