LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE ON SOUNDWISE Nature has seasons. Your body and energy system have cycles. They exist for a good reason. On your journey to fulfill your purpose on earth, there’re also cycles. I call them “dharma cycles”. The dharma cycle consists of three phases– transformation, transition, and service. Your job in each phase of the cycle is different. And when you’re aware of the phase you are in and align your actions with…

LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE ON SOUNDWISE Most of us are driven by two conflicting desires: on one hand we want to feel we’re special. The whole mission of the ego is to maintain an individual identify that makes you feel separate from the rest. Being special feels good in that sense. But on the other hand, most time we’re unwilling to make the choices which make that specialness come out and shine. There’re lots of…

Any creation process has two essential aspects: inspiration and execution, which corresponds to the masculine and feminine energetic qualities in each of us. You need both the masculine and the feminine qualities to bring any new creation into being, just like in the creation of a new life. As a society we culturally worship the masculine. In school and work, we are taught mainly to speak the language of the masculine–i.e., structure, hard work, analysis,…

You just need to be really smart… I’m kidding! Actually the weird thing is having great ideas has nothing to do with your IQ. How do I know? I’m smart. (Stop fooling around and get to the point, Natasha!) Ok, ok. Last August when I left my job, I spent all days sitting on the floor, scheming the next stage of my career. I’d madly write down ideas on scraps of paper, making my living…

Three months ago I decided to learn web development (read about how it happened here). In early-September I enrolled in Hack Reactor. Since then, I’ve been coding for 13-14 hours a day almost every day. I thought I was an efficient person before, but really had to up my productivity game to accommodate the intense coding schedule. I’m sharing with you some simple practices I tried that’ve helped me get everything done while staying healthy and sane. If you skim through…

A member of my writers’ group asked me this question: Hello, I just self-published a novel. It’s not doing so well… About 150 people have bought it nationwide but I want MORE people to know my book. No one really know who I am. I’ve always wanted to be an author but now it’s getting really stressful… I cannot afford to market my book but I have posted blogs, posted my book on Instagram, Facebook…

I got an email the other day from a friend who is a talented writer. She felt discouraged that other people’s work gets attention and praise but not hers. “I’ve worked a long time on my craft,” she said. “But still I don’t know if I’m any good at this. Sometimes I feel it is all hopeless.” I totally sympathize. I’ve been there before. And it got me thinking: why is pursuing our dreams so…

The third one was picked up on the front page of another popular website. Visits to my blog grew in leaps and bounds. I got more email followers in the first week of 2015 than in the past 12 months combined. The sudden popularity felt surreal. I haven’t changed after…
