What Makes an Energy Vampire Out of a “Friend”

There is no fail-safe method of knowing. Some send out that particular vibe from miles away, others are much better at hiding. But there are some guidelines off the top of my head. Guidelines I’ve managed to put in place over time. I tend to not heed my own advice, and at times I tend…

Beware of Young Souls Masking as Guides – they still have a lot to learn

I've been around them all my life, healers, fortune tellers, guides. My godfather's German wife was into that stuff, séances, healer friends, whatnot. My frenemy in second and third grade came from a family deeply entrenched in Theosophy, and she was the first person who consciously introduced me to the concept of reincarnation. I'd always…

Crutches in the Game of Life

In Paris they told me that unless you’ve done a prep course there’s no way in hell you’re getting into the French version of an Ivy League. The competition is too hard and the way the questions on the exam are structured, makes them impossible to tackle without skills taught by those who are now…

Travel Enlightens the Soul – or does it?

A few years ago a group of us was sitting together in a restaurant in my favorite district in Budapest. Four French people just hanging out. My friend wanted to bring us all together, since we weren’t part of the same group. I remember her saying she was glad she’d taken that opportunity of an…

Does Lockdown Affect the TCK / CCK (Mindset) More?

It seems we are stuck here in Finland. Three months ago I thought there are worse places to be confined to than this country. And in a way that is still true. But like with every relationship where you're stuck too close together without any means of escape, you get on each other's nerves. Plus,…

Of Soul Purposes And Other Useful Things

I think one of the reasons I’ve struggled with this blog is that while I’ve always believed in a mutual give and take in all areas of life, I wasn’t quite sure how to give in this case. I want to provide an unbiased account of where I am now - meaning in Finland -…

Return to Finland 2nd Anniversary

It’s been two years, and considering the times, it’s definitely worth looking back. Three years ago I decided that one year of going back to my roots was enough, and I needed to move on, or come back. It took me another twelve months to make the trip back, and the gods / the powers…

Lockdown

It's nice to see what people are up to when they are told not to go out. Or at least not the way that they used to. Glimpses emerge showing parts of their personalities we never knew about. And in many ways, we feel closer to them because of that. In the beginning I thought…

CCK Love – Love You Like I Do

There's a song that was somewhat popular some twenty or so years ago. To me the title (and the song) always seemed to weave that fine line between promising and menacing, especially the chorus in which the singer in a deep baritone declares to his beloved that no one will love her like he does.…
