An Uncomfortable Soul- A Short Story

Once again she has started talking to herself. It’s her‘alone-time’ when thousands of thoughts are crossing her mind. All those questions that include ‘Why me?’and every situation that made her feel bad is flashing from the past.She has a bunch of people around her. Those people who have different mindsets, different goals, and different approach towards life.  May be she builds stronger bonds with lesser people. She is questioning herself, “Is it worth being here?”May be she doubts because,in this temporary world, she still believes in profound talks and eternal relationships. Not just her life revolves around building connections rather she believes in living them. People often perceive her as one with detached persona.But she is a human with reserved emotions who takes a while to truly open up.She hardly discusses her emotions except when she feels she has built a strong enough connection with a person. No doubt, socializing is a difficult task for her. An

Everyone is trying to be creativ

Patrick Sonqo- Biryani with Blogger III

" Biryani with Blogger" is a series on blogger interviews where Chief Blogger, Enlarge Excel Evolve Dr Amit Nagpal chats with prominent bloggers of the world over a plate of Biryani.  The third interview in the series is with Patrick Sonqo, Chief Catalyst and Imaginarian, Sonqos' Worlds.  Dr Amit Nagpal : How can a person improve his or her intuition and resonance?  Patrick (Fuss) Sonqo - Everyone has intuition, it’s about how much we are willing to listen and trust. For many people stillness and peace, connectedness to self and nature, and of course going within enhances intuition. Pranayama and Breathwork can also open up intuition. Anytime we get out of the rational, linear, right-brained world we are allowing our intuition to flow. It is often not what we think we want. Intuition gets grounded and confirmed when we experience resonance. For me, when mind, intuition, emotions, and heart become one when I resonate. Dr Amit : What are Relational Rh
