@_eatandlove_ 1. “It’s all about the level of commitment a guy is willing to give. If you’re dating someone, you’re putting some sort of label. But talking is so vague. You can be talking to multiple girls. It’s really nothing special.” — Drew 2. “Guess it depends. Sometimes we say talking because we don’t know…

st.nothing1. “My girlfriend’s a funny person, but once in a while a joke is bound to fall flat, right? Happens to anyone who tries to make other people laugh regularly.

Twin-Flame Relationship

Twin-Flame Relationship 

My husband and I met in the 3rd grade. We dated in 8th grade, and started dating in college, and close to 10 years later, we’re married and going on 8 years of marriage. I remember playing the game “freeze tag” in elementary school, and I also remember being the fastest girl at my school. The first time Bryan, my husband, took notice of me when I was in the 3rd grade on the playground. Bryan liked me because I was the fastest girl and he couldn’t catch me. I guess that’s why I don’t remember him from 3rd grade… I was running and looking straight forward.We went to the same elementary, middle and high school. We dated for about 4 months when we were 14, and the school voted in our superlative’s that we were the “best couple”. I felt so proud and have always felt extra close to my husband. We’ve always, since college, had an amazing connection between each other. So close of a connection that we finish each other’s sentences before we start talking. He knows exactly what I’m doing, what I’m up to, just by looking at me. I do the same with him. We are soulmates and I am 100% sure of it. Soulmates don’t just come around for everyone, so we know just how important it is to love one another for eternity. It feels so good to be so open to someone. I share everything with my husband. And same goes for him. We enjoy each other’s company so well, we can enjoy ourselves on a Friday or Saturday night with just each other, no company. All because we love being around each other. We both are athletic. So exercising together is one hobby of ours. We are also very creative, and also have ADHD, so when we feel in the creative mood, we can create some amazing art together. I know that Bryan and I are twin flames because it is told that twin flames are stronger than soulmates, and I know how rare a couple like me and Bryan are. Just read a little about twin flames and see how their relationships go farther than any other. 


“Throughout the course of your life you may have had unusual or powerful dreams, visions, or fantasies of a mysterious person. You get a particular feeling and the energy of the individual feels familiar, as if it is someone you have already met in the past or someone you will meet in some unknown future. You have a vague feeling that this person is real even if you can not see a face or invent their physical appearance in your mind. You have a feeling as if this person is ‘out there somewhere’ and may even know who you are on the same level.”

“There may be an unusual synchronicity or event that surround the initial meeting between first flames. Often you have a feeling or ‘knowing’ of something that you just can’t quite put into words. Twinflames often encounter each other for the first time (whether in person or online) in an unusual way. The twinflame comes into our life in an unexpected way out of the blue and usually there are synchonicities and strange occurances or major shifts in energy the same week of the initial meeting.”

“Most twinflame couples are physically at a distance or live in different countries. Often there is something that prevents the twinflames from being physically together in the beginning. This is usually because there is much energetic work to be done on the mental and emotional levels before the physical meeting can occur. If the physical meeting were to occur too soon the energy can often be too intense.”

“The relationship is immediate, as though no time had been lost since you were last together. You feel comfortable with them and you feel you can truly be yourself with them. Sometimes conversation seem to last forever and there is not much that twinflames are not willing to talk about. It’s as if you could share your entire life with this person and there is a level of openness and understanding between you that brings a comfortable yet intruiguing sense of familiarity.”

“You feel an overwhelming sense of love and attraction. This love is genuine and heartfelt and you feel magnetically drawn to their energy. This is not to be confused with lust or an obsessive love. Twinflame love is unconditional and transcends the ego. If you have found your twinflame it does not mean that the relationship will necessarily be free from issues or personal conflict. There may still be lessons and healing that must take place between the twin souls. Twinflames are still human beings on the physical level.”

“You feel a sense of completion that goes beyond words. This feeling is about wholeness on a soul level that is beyond the physical. Each twinflame is still an individual and is not ‘the other half of your soul’ as if you are a complete soul now that you have found them. You are meeting an energetic mirror of your own soul. You share a vibration and you resonate with them. You even feel an attraction to the sound of their voice and it may even sound familiar to you.”

10 Ways to Make Your Soul Ready for True Love

10 Ways to Make Your Soul Ready for True Love

“…and when one of them meets the other half, the actual half of himself, whether he be a lover of youth or a lover of another sort, the pair are lost in an amazement of love and friendship and intimacy and one will not be out of the other’s sight, as I may say, even for a moment…”

– Plato, The Symposium

“Soul memories run deep within us but only some of us will yearn for love that is divine and pure. Finding true love may be the most remarkable, invaluable and indefinable thing that can happen in one’s life and only a lucky few will find the one meant for them. This person will be just right for you and you will experience a connection of the soul that cannot be broken by problems of the material world. Nothing can stand in the way of true love but for this to materialize; one has to prepare the soul for such an extraordinary experience.”

“Most people spend their lives resolving their karma and the process of rinsing your soul of karmic debt may be delayed because of the lack of spiritual enlightenment. Karmic relationships are often confused with soul mates but they are extremely different. The love shared by twin flames shouldn’t be confused with soul mates either, as you may have many soul mates but there is only one twin flame. Your twin flame is your direct counterpart and will be a reflection of you. Those who are waking up to the power of positive thinking, and aspiring to change for the better by seeking spiritual truth, have much to look forward to in life. Blessed will be their existence!”

“Here are some things that you can do to put an end to Karmic Relationships and to attract the love of a Soulmate or in some cases, the love of a Twin Flame:”

1. Believe in Self-love – “Loving yourself doesn’t mean you become obsessed with yourself and indulge in excessive self-praise. Loving yourself, as you actually are, and not what you would like to believe requires effort and a critical look at your actions when nobody’s around to observe you. But, if you remain true to yourself, you will accept your follies and work on these issues that need to be sorted instead of brushing them under the carpet. Identify your weaknesses and things that you would like to do differently in your life. Be what you’ve always wanted to be and stop pretending to be what you are not.”

2. Discover Contentment – “If you aren’t content with what you have and follow the path of greed, your life may never bring you the satisfaction that you so deeply desire. There is no end to things that you can acquire in your lifetime, so it’s important to reflect upon what it is that’s most important to you.”

3. Be Generous– “All acts of kindness are important in order to make the world we live in a kinder and a happier place. Never hesitate to help someone. Human generosity can make miracles happen!”

4. Say ‘Yes’ to Honesty – “Honesty is the highest of all virtues and those who are bereft of this will rarely find divine love. Be honest to yourself and only then can you be true to the one you love. Make sincere efforts to avoid leading a convenient life built on a foundation of lies.”

5. Practice Kindness – “Be kind, not only to those you are close to, but with everyone you come in touch with. Your soul will truly remain at peace when you indulge in acts of unselfishness and are willing to fight all petty emotions that hinder your growth.”

6. Find Hobbies and Interests– “Some people may call it a waste of time but it’s actually not. Interest and passion make you feel alive and you live your life in a constructive manner. Reading, travelling, painting, sculpting, gardening, playing a sport, cooking – do whatever brings you joy. You will be too busy to crib about things or people.”

7. Keep Negativity Out – “Embrace all things positive in your life and surround yourself with people who don’t actively belittle others or enjoy mocking others. Be with people you identify with, value and are worth your admiration. Protect your mind from the influence of those who have the ability to fill it with doubts and miserable thoughts.”

8. Think – “Thinking is the best thing you can do for yourself. There’s a lot of stress on positive thinking and it’s all for a reason. Focus on improving your mind and the way you think. Positive thoughts will help you break away from chains that bind you to a mediocre life. Spend time reflecting upon all the things that can make life an adventure for you. Do good things for yourself and others as well.”

9. Release the Past – “Many of us live in the past and refuse to actually move on. Do you still look up an ex-boyfriend online? Do you still crib about how things didn’t end well with an ex? Do you sulk and refuse to talk about what’s holding you back? If yes, then you certainly have not moved on. How can anyone walk into your life when there’s no space in your heart and life for a new relationship? It’s a choice that only you can make, if you wish to see your life change for the better. When you truly forgive and forget someone, the hurt goes away too and you realize it was never worth your time.”

10. Unconditional Love – “When you love without any limitations, chances of attracting the love of a Soulmate or a Twin Flame are much higher. Love between two soul mates is no ordinary love and you may need to go to great lengths to win the affections of the one who’s meant for you. It may even require sacrifice and in some cases, especially when you are in a Twin Flame relationship, you may have to wait a long time for love to happen. It does not fade away with time and if it does, it was never true love to begin with.”

“A True Relationship”

Today’s Sweet Quote:

New study reveals a fascinating relationship between bipolar disorder and earnings

Relationship Between Bipolar & Earnings“Mental illness is not something we often talk about at work, but for those who suffer from a mental illness, it often affects how they go about their day.”

“That often affects their work — usually, but not always, in a negative way.”

“New research from Barbara Biasi and Petra Moser at Stanford and Michael S. Dahl at Aalborg University in Denmark shows that to be true for bipolar disorder, which “causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks,” according to the National Institute of Health.”

“People with bipolar disorder usually experience both “manic” (euphoric and optimistic) and depressive states. Because of this, it is sometimes called “CEOs disease.” The characteristics of manic states — things like being optimistic and being willing to take more risks — tend to make good entrepreneurs.”

“But there is a big catch: There seems to be a barbell-like distribution of success. So if you have bipolar disorder, it’s much more likely that people with bipolar disorder won’t make it to management and will earn less than their peers. But if you are successful, you’re more likely than other people to be super-successful.”

Here are the results:

“Controlling for year and cohort fixed effects, as well as for other mental disorders, bipolar individuals earn 43 percent less on average. But they are also 8 percent more likely to enter the 90 percentile of the wage distribution and 7 percent more likely to enter the 95 percentile of the wage distribution.”

“The findings seem to suggest that the people with bipolar disease who are most successful are those who are executives at small firms. They earn, on average, 18% more than the overall population. However, the bump doesn’t trickle down to employees. There isn’t a significant difference between the wages of bipolar employees of small firms and the rest of their colleagues.”

“And the research suggests that being treated for the disease is very important. The conclusion finds that “access to lithium eliminated the wage penalty for average wages, and it further improves the likelihood that bipolar individuals break into the top percentiles of the wage distribution.””


My Blessing In Life

I love My Husband


“Every morning I wake up and see,
The most handsome man lying next to me.
He’s the one I cherish and love,
A blessing sent from Heaven above.
I will love him as a faithful wife should,
And do everything for him I could.
I would let him know every day,
That I love him more than words can say.
It will keep our love for each other strong,
And the Lord will guide us away from all wrong.”



The Art of an Open Relationship




The Fickle Heartbeat

The Art of an Open Relationship

Shared by Heather M. You can visit the original post here.

You’ve probably heard of the term ‘open relationship’ or ‘open marriage’. A mutual agreement between partners that enables each party to pursue sexual encounters outside of their relationship. A trend that possibly emerged during the swinging 60s – think tossing keys into a giant bowl to see who you end up with – but most likely transcended the free love era…except no one was talking about it.

A while ago, I published an article in the Huffington Post exploring the notion of monogamy and whether or not it was natural behaviour for humans. This sparked a flurry of heated comments and discussion and landed me on a HuffPost Live segment with a panel of “experts”. I most certainly am not an expert, but I find the discussion fascinating.

I recently met a woman who has been…
