What Is Ego? Is It There to Help Your Existence or to Control You?

What is ego? Ego is a very common topic for discussion, yet not many truly understand what it is, how it works and why it plays such a big role in our life. On the one hand, people often say that ego is “bad” and that it is there to slow us down.

Materialism and Spirituality – Can They Co-Exist?

For a very long period of time, I was convinced that materialism and spirituality cannot co-exist. In fact, I thought that materialism is the direct opposite of spirituality, and that all materialists are inherently “shallow people”. With age, though, came new experiences and a new realization that the world is not as black and white as it may first appear to a teenager with a maximalist view of the world.

As a person that is very passionate about self-actualization, I believe that the topic of materialism and spirituality cannot be put aside. Self-actualization is all about becoming better and finding harmony, a balance in life between everything that it offers. Therefore, both, materialism and spirituality, should be handled with equal importance.

The aim of this post is to help those that might be having the same inner struggle that I once had. A struggle regarding the question of can materialism and spirituality co-exist in one person or can they not?

Astral Projection, Out of Body Experience and Lucid Dreaming – All Real and You Can Do It Too!

Astral projection, out of body experience and lucid dreaming – I’ve been thinking of writing about these topics for a while, but due to their nature, I was held back until now. Although there are thousands and probably millions of people that know exactly what I am talking about, I am sure there are going to be people that will claim that I have made this story up or that no such things exist. However, I want to assure you that I have no reasons to be dishonest with you. I simply want to share my story and my experiences. You are free to judge and to decide for yourself whether you believe me or not, but that won’t in any way impact the experiences that I’ve had.

How to Overcome Shyness and Become More Socially Confident

In this blog post, I won’t be talking about all the complicated and fancy tricks you can use to overcome shyness and become more socially confident. No, that can be found elsewhere, on websites dedicated to psychology or given to you by your psychiatrist. Instead, I want to share with you my own story of how I overcame this problem. Since I have direct experience of transitioning from a very shy and fearful child to a grown up that can easily handle a serious conversation with a stranger, I feel that my words are able to benefit you.
