Professional culture shock

And there will also have been some time for your mind to begin to miss the ‘mirrors’ from home that tell us who we are and how we should act. While being in a new environment is an excellent opportunity to have new aspects of ourselves mirrored back, we sometimes just need to be seen for who we know ourselves to be best.

Co-dependence or interdependence?

This coming week* we come under the influence of a very animalistic archetypal energy, in every sense of the word. This is the archetype of the wonderful animal whispers such as Cesar Milan.

If we have the courage to truly ride the swings of life, we find that they are always in motion. It’s nothing we ‘do’ or don’t ‘do’, it just is.
