7 Toxic Behaviors You Should Never Tolerate

Gaslights you This is a power play, used by people who perceive the other person in the relationship as weaker or easily manipulated; parents do it to children, using the force of their authority, as do adults who are intent on control. The gaslighter calls the other person’s perceptions or vision of reality into question by denying that something was said or done, and then suggesting that you’ve made it up or misunderstood. The gaslighter preys on what he or she knows about your level of confidence in your perceptionsRead More


7 Toxic Behaviors You Should Never Tolerate

Humans tend to normalize behaviors of close intimates, tucking certain responses and behaviors into folders labeled: “Just the way he is” or “So typical of her.” We do that because, in the moment, we chose to stay in the relationship, even though the sailing isn’t always smooth. Some of the time, we fail to recognize that we’re actually excusing behaviors that should never be tolerated. People with insecure attachment styles whose emotional needs weren’t met in childhood do this more often and for longer than securely attached people who are much more likelyRead More


Vigorous exercise linked to increased risk of developing motor neurone disease, study suggests

Vigorous exercise may be linked to a heightened risk of developing motor neurone disease, a new study suggests. The disease, also called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, is sometimes known as the ‘Athlete’s curse’ because it affects a disproportionate number of sports people. ALS, which impacts two in 100,000 people in Britain, is a progressive, fatal neurodegenerative disease for which there is currently no treatment. Last month Stephen Hawking, the theoretical physicist, died from a rare version of the condition. To try and find out what might cause the illness, researchers comparedRead More


Dealing With the Challenges of Being an Empath (or Highly Sensitive)

Let me begin by saying I am not an empath. I am a catalyst, but I do have empathic tendencies. The work here at Openhand draws plenty of empaths (and highly sensitive people) naturally, by the Law of Attraction. Perhaps then, there’s something an empath can learn about their gift from a catalyst? (and of course vice versa). Perhaps there’s something a catalyst naturally does, which is inherent to their nature, that an empath can develop inside themselves? And maybe this can make living in this complex and diverse world a whole lotRead More


Dealing With the Challenges of Being an Empath (or Highly Sensitive)

Feeling Into Blockages Let’s look at the beneficial nature of being an empath, or having empathic qualities, for a moment. Because to truly unleash beingness and shed distortion, is to express the truth in the distortion — you’re activating the distortion because the soul is trying to break through an area of limitation. In having empathic tendencies as a spiritual catalyst, means that you can feel into and harmonise with the feelings of another – especially their density. In the Facilitator Work we do at Openhand, I get the group to practice expanding their fieldRead More
