It’s March here in South Carolina. I love this time of year because the weather is getting warmer, the flowers are starting to bloom and it stays light later. Spring is coming! But occasionally winter likes to give us a reminder that we’re not quite done with it yet. That is what happened this weekend. After a few weeks of temperatures in the 70s and even 80s, we…

Are You Practicing Self Love- piece of paper with a heart colored on it with crayon and the post title

If you were to ask most people, they would agree that we should all love ourselves. And yet, not only do many people not love themselves in healthy ways, but most don’t even know what positive self-love really is. This is particularly true of those who are highly sensitive. A lack of self-love is a big problem in the energy-sensitive community. It is certainly something I have faced…
