Why Music Can Be Healing for the Soul

Music can be therapeutic. There are many genres of music that we choose to listen to: emo, punk, rock, gothic, rock and roll, classical, pop, R&B, foreign, K-pop, J-pop, C-pop, and more. What we choose to listen to can depict and influence our mood.

Personally, when I listen to classical music, it feels calm and relaxed. It makes me feel like I am in peace. It helps me to get in a meditative state of being. I like classical music because I used to play it when I was younger, and I took lessons for two years and learned how to enjoy it. But others might not have a taste for it because it is from

My favorite genres to listen to are pop and K-pop, though I have shifted over to listening more to American pop these days. I used to listen to some K-pop and J-pop when I was younger, so I am familiar with it and enjoy it a lot.

Listening to music can influence your mood. So, we should be careful about the kinds of music we listen to. We attract good into our life by listening to music that is nice and upbeat. We attract more negativity into our lives by listening to emo music, and I know this by experience. So first, learn how different genres of music influence your mood. Choose the one you identify with to express yourself.

Listening to music and dancing or singing to music can be healing for the soul. Try experimenting with different sounds until you find the music that you like. Try not to resolve to negative coping skills that are harmful.

You can also listen to music while taking care of other things. For example, when you’re organizing and cleaning, you can enjoy listening to music in the background. Exciting music could help with that too. Or if you would like, you can listen to classical music while blogging.

You can even listen to music while journalling and map your thoughts out. Maybe you could talk about how the music influences your mood while you’re writing. Or, you can talk about how you identify yourself with the kind of music that you like.

How to Be a True Hustler

Hustling takes hard work and dedication, but it can be achieved. It’s easy to get caught up in distractions, but you have to learn how to ignore the distractions and to focus. It takes time to learn how to focus too. Focus can be hard to some people, but for me, it now becomes natural.

My schooling experience has been a little weird. I love learning. However, I enjoy having the freedom to learn things at my own pace. That is how I learned about programming, mathematics, music, and so forth and so on. I have many subjects that I am interested in learning about. So I just try learning everything one day at a time.

I used to have trouble concentrating on my life, but I know how to do it very well now. And I know how to take care of myself in a proper way. It takes practice, but it’s possible to be balanced and to learn how to achieve your dreams.

Hustling takes hard work. You have to practice good self-care, which means you have to be hygienic and take care of your immediate needs first (such as water, food, clothes, and shelter). And on top of that, you have to work in a calm and relaxed manner so that you can manifest good things into your life.

You can start slowly by goal-setting first. Identify a goal for each day one at a time, and then go week by week, and then by month to month and so forth. Or if that is too hard, go at it one second or minute at a time. Start from where you are. Go at your own pace. And learn how to get along with other people by using your communication skills.

Goal-setting is a little difficult for some people, so I will briefly explain how you can set goals. First, start with a journal or a planner. Journal out your thoughts to figure out what’s most important to you. And use a planner to jot down quick checklists for what you want to accomplish during the day. This is how you start small.

Then after that, you can move on to higher forms of planning such as mapping out your future plans (week by week, month by month, year by year, and possibly even further than that). Try imagining talking to a younger version of yourself first to figure out what needs to be accomplished.

I hope that this article was helpful. And if you’re still interested in figuring out how to live as a hustler, try checking out my other articles such as How to Surround Yourself with A Players and The People You Surround Yourself With.

What’s Wrong With Being Confident?

Confidence is a positive emotion. Having true confidence is learning how to be a strong human being. It means to stop playing games with your life and to live it to the fullest potential. Below is a song that I like to listen to in order to help boost my confidence.

I like being confident because it allows me to excel in my life. I know it’s hard to not give up at times, but you have to be the controller of your own life. And you have to learn how to chase after your dreams. That means, no messing around. Take control and create your own destiny.

Confidence is the ability to ignore distractions while maintaining a higher level of consciousness. There are many ways to improve your self-confidence, and one of those ways is to continually practice self-care and compassion.

It can sometimes be difficult to be confident. So what you need to do first is to look into yourself (inwards) and to figure out where this negativity is coming from. The second is to overcome the negativity and the fears by living out your life and living out your dreams.

What Karma Teaches Us About People

Karma is a confusing subject for many people. I believe in karma, because whatever you give does eventually come back. Good things happen all the time to both “good” people and “bad” people. But what makes a person “bad” or “good”?

I believe that karma works with law of attraction. Good karma always get rewarded. However, you may have to face some difficult obstacles in order to receive rewards. It’s not necessarily bad karma. It just depends on whether you faced it or not.

The same goes for people. We label people as being different categories: black, white, hispanic, Puerto Rican, Latino, Indian, poor, rich, bad, good, wealthy, and so forth. But we have to learn how to get along with each other, because what comes around goes and around. And the quicker you catch onto those lessons, the faster you become rewarded.

It also depends on the person. Some people are only able to tolerate a little bit of hard work and dedication, while others learn how to excel and move as fast as lightning or thunder.

Nowadays, I consider myself an A player at resolving my own karma. I learned how to get along better with my family and how to trust my instincts more. A players are able to balance their lives very carefully as to not work with the wrong kinds of people. A players are always on a mission to better their lives in the right kinds of ways. The interesting thing about this is that anyone can call themselves an A player, so long as they have that kind of confidence in themselves.

What karma can teach us about people is that we have to be careful about the types of people we surround ourselves with. And, we must learn how to keep our minds at a calm and relaxed state at all times. We have to learn how to be balanced. There are some things in this world that are dangerous, and some things that are not. But we do not need to give into the fear. We can learn how to resonate at a higher frequency by believing in ourselves first. Take the lessons one by one and learn how to resolve them on your own.

How Does Law of Attraction Work? (LOA)

The way law of attraction works is by attracting things that are aligned with the same frequency as you. When you think negative, you attract negativity. When you think positive, you attract positivity. And what’s negative or positive is different based on the person you are.

When you dream to accomplish something big, you may attract more negativity than usual. That’s okay because it just means that you’re somewhere on the right track.

Below is a video that goes more into depth on how LoA (Law of Attraction) works.

Don’t be startled by any negativity that comes into your life. Just try to be calm, rational, and logical about the negativity. And then, accept your past and move on.

Why Do People Like Bullying?

Bullying never solves anything. It is a way for people to escape their true feelings. When you bully people, you lower your state of consciousness and awareness. You have to be careful about how you use your words and how you treat other people.

Personally, I don’t pay attention to negativity. I don’t get caught up in the news or in political affairs. The reason is because some people are irrational and use violence as a way to resolve problems. But violence is not the answer. Peace is. You have to learn how to take care of yourself first, and then give back to other people.

Sometimes, bullying can be a confusing topic. Sometimes, people bully people because they like those people. Sometimes, they are trying to just have fun. Sometimes, bullying and joking around can seem similar. The best way to approach bullying is to just ignore it and to joke around back with it. Make fun of yourself first, and try not to let those words affect you.

The best way to deal with bullying is to be nice and gentle. Bullying just means that someone else has insecurities. It can be difficult to accept your flaws and insecurities, but if you do, you will find yourself attracting more people into your life, and these people will be your true friends.

I do not stand for bullying because it is not the correct answer. Bullies sometimes do not know what they are doing. All you have to do is stand up for yourself in a calm and relaxed manner, or you can choose to ignore them.

What it Means to Live a Vegan Lifestyle

Nowadays, it’s easy to live a vegan lifestyle. The reason I call it a lifestyle is because it involves more than just food. It requires you to be conscious of your food choices, your clothes selection, and even your car selections.

Just the other day, I went to Pure Sweets and Co. It is a vegan restaurant that supplies organic, kosher, and gluten-free foods. I ordered potato latkes with a little bit of what I believe to be hummus, tofu scramble, greens, and applesauce withBrazilian nut and coconut sugar white rose tea. And a while ago, I tried dragonfruit. It tasted sweet like a pear.

I like all sorts of animals. The dog that I want to have someday is a husky inu, though I would have to do some more research on it to figure out how to make it vegan dog food. According to PETA, it’s possible to have a vegan dog that lives for a long lifespan. I might get a dog sometime soon because I really love animals. And now that I know it’s possible to feed a dog vegan food, I will try to take care of it.

I started trying to live a vegan lifestyle due to health and ethical reasons. It can be a difficult transition, but it doesn’t have to be. And it is a good way to raise the consciousness of the planet and of yourself.

If you’re not used to being around animals, you can start small such as with a hamster. You can also try visiting a local cat of dog cafe if you have one in your area. I visited a dog cafe in Korea, and it was nice because they had dogs running around, and you could pet the different dogs while sipping on tea.

If you would like to have a dog, you should start by researching different breeds of animals. I don’t recommend going to a pet store to buy animals. It is better to visit a local dog shelter, or to find a dog breeder. Personally, I might consider finding a dog breeder.

The People You Surround Yourself With

“Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation, for ’tis better to be alone than in bad company.”

George Washington

I think that it is important to surround yourself with people who are at a higher level consciousness. What that means is that they are actively looking to take care of themselves while at the same time contributing to society.

The truth is that no one is perfect, but you can learn how to accept others for their flaws. At the same time, you want to make sure you don’t get consumed by negativity. You need to have balance, and the way to do that is to be smart about when you use negativity and when you use positivity. Too much optimism can lead to fatal consequences at times, and too much negativity can do the same thing.

Everyone has their own language of who they want to surround themselves with. For me, I like to surround myself with ambitious yet fun people. Truthfully, I find that there are few ambitious and fun people. But when you find these people, you know that you’ve created something special.

I like to surround myself with people who excel in all areas of their life, from health to appearance to career to finances. It is a tough road to follow, but if you follow your intuition, you can achieve anything that you put your efforts towards. It can be a little difficult to find these people, but if you just live your life, improve your relationships, and actively search for these people, you will find them.

What Is Real Love?

What is real love? Real love means acceptance of others and no judgment. The reason why true unconditional love exists is because it raises the level of your consciousness. Consciousness is important because it brings peace and higher level of understanding for yourself, for the people you choose to surround yourself with, and for the world.

There is an old parable that goes like this:

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.

“It is a terrible fighting and it is between two wolves. One is evil— he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good— he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you— and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Often times, we get caught up in the wrong things. There is nothing wrong with being materialistic, greedy, or lustful at times, but there is a problem with getting so consumed with it that you don’t pay attention to what’s most important, and that is being true to yourself.

You just have to learn how to live a balanced life. Too much positivity can lead you to being manic. And too much negativity can lead to more negativity, such as suicidal thoughts or unworthiness. It can be a little confusing to learn how to live a balanced life, but the best way to live that kind of life is to learn from your part mistakes and to do better next time.

There are times when we feel happy, confused, lost, abandoned, curious, and so on. We don’t have to feed into the negativity all the time, and it’s okay if you’re not used to feeling positive. But either way, you should learn how to master your mindset and focus on the good in your life. You have to learn how to accept your past and move on. Learn how to forgive not only others, but yourself first.

A good way to get your feelings out is to journal or to blog. It is a good way to process your feelings and emotions. Other coping skills include finding ways to enjoy your life such as listening to music, singing, dancing, or hanging out with friends.

Real love can be a confusing topic at times. Sometimes, the things we feel are real, and sometimes they are just imaginary. That is why it’s a good idea to blog or to journal your feelings and thoughts out. It teaches you how to become a better human being.

I like to think of myself as a human doing. That means I am always problem-solving. If there is a problem that you can fix, you fix it. If there is a problem you’re not sure how to fix, you wait it out a bit and then decide on a solution that is good.

I like to think that I have unconditional love for myself and for others. I am a compassionate human being who cares about other people. But sometimes, I go overboard and only pay attention to what others want rather than taking the time to get to know myself. It can be dangerous sometimes to only help others and not taking care of your own needs first. So you need to learn how to be balanced with your thoughts, feelings, emotions, and overall existence.

I can get more into these topics on future blog posts. For now, I’d say that you should have unconditional love for yourself first. Be your own best friend. Go to the movies. Read books. Play fun games with friends. Be a good human being.

Saying No or Politely Declining a Request

It can be difficult to assert your power, but we all have the ability to decline an invitation or request. All we have to do is say no. In certain situations, we may have to go as far as ignoring a request, though it is not always necessary. With a little practice, you can learn how to assert your power again.

When someone asks you to do something and you don’t want to accept that request, just say no. You can say is with respect. In other cases, you might have to do a little more than just saying no. But, don’t feel the need to give a long explanation or reason as to why you said no. Just saying no is enough sometimes. You may have to repeatedly say no, or ignore the person. Either way, your request should be granted. You shouldn’t feel bad about saying no too.

A good rule of thumb is to keep it as brief as possible. You can be polite and say, “Thank you for asking.” You can apologize if you want to, but otherwise, try not to apologize when saying no. Every person has the right to say no.

Some people feel bad about saying no because they are kind, considerate people. But sometimes, you have to take the initiative to say no. You shouldn’t feel as if someone is taking advantage of you.
