Our souls are little, near-constantly chattering things. But we don’t often listen to them. We get caught up in our lives and simply don’t hear our souls and the messages they have to offer from previous lives. If anything, these are four big things your soul wishes you knew.
1. You’re fine.
Seriously. Your soul watches you lurch through life always wondering, always doubting yourself, and feeling so insecure so often. But your soul knows that in the long run, societal pressures and insecurities don’t matter much. You’re fine. You can always look to develop yourself, and your soul would be delighted by that! But you do it on your terms.
2. You’re meant to feel deeply.
Your soul wants you to know that there’s nothing good that will come out of brushing aside your experiences and ignoring your feelings. You were meant to feel deeply – and that means everything. So feel all your feelings.
3. You’re here to experience life.
That’s the very definition of being alive. We’re supposed to go on adventures, to go travel, to fall in love, to have families, or to not have families if that’s what we prefer. But we’re intended to live our lives the way we want to and to the absolute fullest.
4. Your soul wants you to do your best.
If you do your best, you’ll be surprised at all the things you end up accomplishing. And if you come up short, how can anyone beat you up for it? How can you hold it against yourself? You did your best, and that’s all any reasonable person, including your soul, could expect of you.
Sounds pretty awesome, right? Finally, the Tesla dream of wireless energy is here. Hold on though, because it’s not exactly what you think. You won’t soon be able to charge your tablet or smart phone with existing Wi-Fi routers.
The authors of this piece of research claim that they operated a small camera 20 feet from a router. The camera used a Wi-Fi signal to charge a capacitor, allowing it to to snap an image every 35 minutes.
Technically, it could very well power a small device at some point. However, your phone still uses too much power for something like that to be effective. The average cell phone is about a million times more energy sucking than the tiny camera is.
Decades ago, Nikola Tesla pondered the possibility of a technology like this coming to life. He believed you could power things without wires. He didn’t, however, invent anything that could. Now it looks like there’s an opening to it being possible, but it’s hard to say whether or not the technology will come to fruition.
Or if it will be allowed to come to fruition.
But it has been officially proven that we can charge things with Wi-Fi. Just not very energy intensive things.
Depression is one of the most troubling of illnesses. It can impact nearly anyone at any time. Many people who are depressed don’t fully realize it, and many people in their lives may have no idea. About 20 million people in America will be depressed every year and 25% of young people under the age of 24 will experience it at some time or another. It’s certainly not a rare condition.
What are the signs that someone is depressed, and what can you do to help?
1. They are less interested in things they used to like.
You have a friend who loves hiking, surfing, swimming, and hitting the bar on the weekends who suddenly doesn’t want to do any of it anymore. Seems unusual, right? Instead of forgetting about them and doing all those things anyway, realize that they might be depressed. If you think this is a result of depression, gently talk about where they’ve been and what they’ve been up to.
2. Being somewhat aloof.
When depressed, people often shy away from being in the company of others. When they do come out, they can be quiet, reserved, and negative. Much like #1, if you’re experiencing this with a friend, talk about why they’ve had such low self esteem and cancel social events at the last minute.
3. Sudden mood swings.
Depression can be caused by chemical imbalances in the brain. These imbalances can lead to sudden mood swings in short periods of time. Not only that, but things that once got no rise out of them suddenly do, like a sarcastic remark. Understand this may be due to depression. Don’t judge them too hard.
4. Sudden weight loss or weight gain.
Depression can manifest as a sudden loss of appetite or a major increase in it. Drastic changes like this may be a sign of depression.
5. Suicidal ideations.
Death is hard to cope with, or even consider, and so suicide is often treated as a taboo not to be discussed. Sometimes the thoughts of suicide in a depressed person can be a byproduct of depression. Don’t try to handle it on your own if you know someone with suicidal thoughts. Seek professional help.
