seven seconds to make a first impression

Psychic Abilities Of The Aura & Chakras

The human body comes with a built-in processing unit that makes it possible for us to receive intuitive messages from angels, spirit guides and our surroundings. It is known as the energy body; we can flex its muscles by working with the aura and the chakras in daily meditations.

The chakras regulate the flow of life force energy in the physical, mental and emotional bodies. We can send healing to different spheres of life through the chakras, as they each govern a different aspect, for example, community, appetite for life, or personal power. They are also the filters through which we receive psychic impressions from the universe.

Advice on how to be the classiest and most sophisticated version of yourself?:)

-Manners are always nice. I know it may be cliche, but there is nothing better than someone that knows how to say please and thank you.

-Be intelligent. You may not be the smartest person in the world, but that doesn’t mean that you cannot read, learn, and take the time to be genuinely interested in things. 

-Help others. See if you can do at least one good deed a day to brighten someone’s day. Compliment others. If you see someone in need, be sure to lend a helping hand, ear, or a bowl of ice cream if need be. 

-“Dressing well is a form of good manners.” -Tom Ford: This may seem obvious, but first impressions are formed in seven seconds and you only have one opportunity to make that impression a lasting one. 

-Ask for help. Don’t ever feel that you will be looked down upon for not knowing the answer. It takes an educated person to accept help from others. 

-Do not let the world make you bitter. People will walk all over you, lie, cheat and manipulate, but what they cannot take away from you is your passion for life, strength, determination, kind heart, bravery, and courage that allows you to rise above the negativity. 

Remember that sophistication is not in the clothes that you wear, the money in your bank account, or the degree hanging on your wall. Sophistication is about knowing who you are, where you are going, and not letting anyone stop you from accomplishing those goals.

The Abenaki warriors were fascinated by the French siege works and great artillery pieces at Fort William Henry in August 1757. ‘They were constantly around our gunners because they admired their dexterity. But their admiration was not passive. They wanted to try everything to make themselves more useful. They said they wished to become cannoniers; so they could distinguish themselves. After having fired a cannon for himself, and hitting a corner of the fort one had achieved his goal.’ Impressed with his skill the French gunners tried to persuade him to try another shot but he refused. With his fellow warriors looking on with admiration 'he said the reason for his refusal was that the first was so perfect he did not want to hazard the glory in a second attempt’.
