Today 25 April 2013 is the first Penumbral Lunar Eclipse of the Year.
We can all feel its energy of deep transformation, letting go or letting be, liberation from old patterns, rebooting our lives, surrendering of egotistical desires and pride, emotional awareness, renewed desires, reconnection with our essential needs and going about getting them met, re-energizing…
The Maximum Eclipse will occur at 8:08pm UTC, how more lucky can it be?
I hope you can Embrace it, for the Best of what you Wish for, whatever it is.
Women are their own worst beauty critics. Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful. Dove conducted a compelling social experiment that, with the contribution of a Forensic FBI Artist, explores how women view their own beauty in contrast to what others see.

We’ve all been there: you need an answer from someone, or a favor, or a feedback, or you express feelings or thoughts, so you send a text or an email, or you leave them a voice message… and you get NO answer. Nothing, zit, nada. Not even an acknowledgement. You exposed your vulnerability, you need help, you gathered the courage to express yourself, you got out of the woods. And you are now facing the Void.
With the explosion of emails as the main mean to communicate, silence has become an accepted form of reply. The interaction is not happening face to face, so it is easy to ignore a message that sparks no special interest for us or triggers an uncomfortable feeling. Emails, texts and voice messages make it so easy to avoid confronting anything.
I believe that this form of silence is emotional abuse.
Don’t get me wrong, silence is a gem when it is about centering ourselves, gathering our thoughts, sharing a moment with a loved one, cooling down before saying words we can regret.
The silence I am talking about is different. It is indifference and plain ignoring. Not acknowledging any form of personal communication coming your way makes the sender feel unimportant, not valued, not cared about and completely absent from the abuser’s thoughts.
We are all entitled to not want to deal with any topic, at any time, or to delay our response. But the decent way to handle it is to acknowledge the message sent to us, and explain that we will not respond, or that we will respond later on, and why.
Ignoring someone in this context is very much like the famous Silence Treatment: feigned apathy; cold-shoulder; silence; distance, and ignoring you. It is the worst form of emotional abuse. The Silence Treatment is a form of non-physical punishment and control. It is a form of banishing someone from the abuser’s existence without the benefit of closure or a good bye or a chance at reconciliation.
People who don’t want to confront any uncomfortable topics, issues in a relationship, or within themselves are masters at this technique. Narcissist perverts use and over-use silence. You are left there hanging, wondering what is going on, what the abuser is thinking or doing. It is a mean to progressively kill the victim’s psyche and integrity, destroy their self-esteem and dignity. It can lead to suicidal thoughts and it is extremely difficult and long to recover from that treatment.
That is why the Silence Treatment is one of the worst emotional abuse, and why I am appalled by how casual and normal silence has become in our digital communication every day. Abuse is abuse. And abuse is never ok.

Can’t sleep ?
Sleep problems (ranging from difficulty to fall asleep to total insomnia) take a heavy toll on our health. Sleep deprivation is indeed so disturbing for our balance and global health (physical, mental, emotional) that it is used as a torture and mind manipulation technique.
If you suffer from insomnia and are looking for a sleep remedy that does not involve chemicals self-acupressure is for you!
Acupressure is safe and easy to apply (if explained by a certified acupressure practitioner), and does not require any tool or equipment.
All you need is… your hands!
