Every year we go into a new Worldly Year Number and Personal Year Number. The numbers go from 1 to 9. You can figure out both with a simple calculation.
Worldly Years - Add the year to a single digit between 1-9.
Ex: 2020 = 2+0+2+0 = 4 Worldly Year
Personal Years - Add your Month of Birth to your Day of Birth to the Worldly Year Number.
Ex: 12-20 = 1+2+2+0+4 = 9 Personal Year
* My personal year has been quite accurate as I spent time in Asia during the pandemic.
I spoke about the spiritual influences as well earlier this year. After Kobe's death, he showed me tropical regions. He wanted me to leave Jeju Island SK to Southeast Asia (MY) to visit. I had no idea he meant it would be for this long ass pandemic! lol
Shinee's Jonghyun's influence has been with me since 2017 showing me living in East Asia since then. I made the journey to test the vision out in 2019 (Japan and SK). This year I made the decision to make Asia my new home. I also joked earlier this year that I was just going to stan Shinee and fellow Rooster Taemin this year. Its' still looking that way as I wait for the other members to return from their military duties.
My passed grandmother has also been around me showing me my grandfather (military vet I never met). This is what is guiding me to visit Okinawa later this year or next. They all have been giving me glimpses beyond this as well for the new year.
Needless to say, the Personal Year #9 will Always be your most eye opening and healing.
It's simply a year to prepare you for fresh starts in your upcoming #1 Personal Year. Whew!
Here are the other Number Meanings and Lessons...

When you're in need...
* to do some work
* take a mental break
* calm a child down with more than just a high vibration salad (it works)
* take an afternoon nap
* get your 8-10 hours of sleep
* listen to some relaxing music
Put your headphones on and Click Below and/or my How to Stay Focused post again.
Magnesium powder or chewing a magnesium pill also works fast. ;)
Magnesium is one of the most depleted minerals in the body, esp for smokers and/or stressed out people. I always tell people to get more in their system 1st. People can then re-evaluate their lifestyle choices. Life is nothing but a bunch of choices. Make them chillaxed ones.
Magnesium and Headphones are very much needed to help everyone Keep Calm and Carry On. :)
For those who have made the decision to "work from home" while traveling, Digital Nomad is the term we give ourselves. It allows many people to see new locations and/or settle down long term in new locations. Many end up meeting their romantic partners and/or traveling with existing partners. It can be an interesting lifestyle for the long term travel lover.
When it comes to any type of long term travel, cost of living must be taken into consideration.
You can always visit numbeo.com to get a feel of any location's cost of living.
I personally feel that you should base your travel budget on what you're currently spending in your home country for Rent, Utilities, Transportation, Food, and MISC. You can then break down your travel budget for Asia.
Here is a Sample Monthly Travel Budget for a Comfortable stay in Asia...
Accommodation (Hotel, Hostel, Vacation Rental)
$30-$70 a night Max
* You can always be flexible in your budget if you want to stay really fancy. *
Food (Eating Out, Delivery, Groceries)
$300 - $600 Max ($10 -$20 a day)
Transportation (Ride Shares, Taxis, Rental Cars, Private Drivers)
The Low Budget Max would be around $1300 a month.
** Of course you can always find ways to spend much less than $1300 a month in Asia.
I just wanted to provide some examples for existing and future Digital Nomads. :)
You can simply add on any MISC below...
Misc (Shopping, Tourist Attractions, Plane Tickets, Worldwide Personal Assistants, etc)
After a year in Asia since mid 2019 (pandemic included) you start to change in little ways. For anyone who is thinking about taking on the journey, here are some important things that you may notice...(To Be Continued)
* Your Comfort Food cravings go from Photo 1 to Photo 2! - You better believe that Ramen becomes your new comfort food! I was never really a fan of fast food before traveling to Asia though. I was a patient little traveler by stocking up on my Jin Ramen after the pandemic slowed down. :) It may become your favorite ramen too! You'll learn that Korean MILD = SPICY so add the packet seasoning in doses. The name will also make you want to check in with some idols on vlive.tv where they sometimes do cooking (with or without their cute pets) and mukbangs
(with or without their cute pets).
Luckily you can purchase ramen from all over Asia throughout Asia (supermarkets, convenience stores (7-11 in most of Asia and GS25 in Korea are the Best). I still enjoy drinking my kale powder and berry powder though! It's still an easy way to get in your fruits and veggies. The benefits are great! You'll never run out of farm fresh organic fruits and veggies in Asia though! Organic imports from Australia and New Zealand are also available.
Simply purchase some clear plastic containers with lids, silverware or chopsticks, etc for a travel friendly meal.
* You know where to stock up on beauty and health supplements. - SE Asia is great for stocking up on affordable supplements before heading back to East Asia.
Supplements like Astaxanthin are a powerhouse of antioxidants for your entire body! It's what gives salmon and other seafood its red hue. You can get around 4 grams in a 4 oz piece of salmon as well, especially if you're in Japan where salmon bentos to salmon sushi are affordable, tasty, and convenient at supermarkets and convenient stores.
Beauty powders are also very popular throughout Asia. You really can try all the brands.
Nandos is a flavorful SA restaurant chain that you can try if you're in SE Asia, especially if you prefer East Asia's food seasonings more. Everyone has their favorite Asian countries and preferences.
You can get peri peri chicken in other parts of Asia as well (Ex: Okinawa).
The bottom line is that you learn what each Asian country has to offer for your needs.
Asian Costcos exist for bulk buys of supplements when you get back around one. You learn where they are all located too!
* You know where to see Fall foliage in East Asia with little effort. - The ACROS building in Fukuoka is a great find for performing arts, art displays, shopping, eating, and just walking around. I've yet to visit in Spring. The "hipster" city is a quick plane trip to Jeju Island KR (Below) and Okinawa Island JP (Coming Soon...hopefully). If you're "naturally tan" and laid back, the southern islands in East Asia can be an easy adjustment to a new culture.
Learning to write out Korean and Japanese for taxi drivers, accommodations, etc and/or use a translator can be handy though. You may want to stick to hotels and/or hostels at first to get a vibe of the different cities and countrysides. They often come with free gifts/samples and information. ;) You can also meet a lot of people from Around the World that are on the same journey!
* You get "lost" in a sea of fellow 5ft Asian girls. - If you've ever had innocent jokes made about your short height growing up, Asia will make you fit right in. You may actually feel tall when someone is actually shorter than you!
East Asia to Southeast Asia, the 5ft girl height is probably the ONLY way Asians "all look alike". You learn their other similarities and differences in time. ;)
Over the years, I’ve had many people (teachers, classmates, clients, etc) ask me how I remain so chill all the time. Many times I end up laughing on the inside because it’s about 90% true. Even if I do find myself getting upset about something, I always end up laughing out loud because of a joke I end up making about a situation. I truly believe that weak minded/egocentric people will have a hard time in the World. You have to get your mind right from an early age. This will allow you to focus through anything, especially when it comes to Mother Nature.
You know there are kids All Over the World who have learned how to play board games and/or video games during a thunderstorm, hurricane, tornado, earthquake, etc.
Safety first of course. ;)
Here are some ways that I have learned to focus over the years…
Chores – I grew up with chores, finishing homework before I could go out and play, and extracurricular activities. This teaches kids how to be responsible, organized, and balance work with play.
Entrepreneurship – I also grew up with lemonade stands, yard sales, etc. This teaches kids how to be self-sufficient. I’m a strong believer in having your foundations (health, career, finances) solid first and foremost in life.
Minimalism – Minimalism isn’t always about living with less. It’s about just living with what you need and love. Being a location independent entrepreneur/digital nomad allows me to travel light and stay where I desire in the World (hotels, rentals, cities, nature, etc).
A clutter free environment allows you mental freedom.
Short Hair & Nails - This is based on palmistry and experience. Short nails are associated with hard work. It’s also practical to have short nails if you use a keyboard, text, and/or take care of tasks like cooking, cleaning, etc.
Short hair above the shoulders allows you mental freedom to focus on more practical concerns. There’s no real need to deal with distracting hair ties or headbands.
These can give some people a headache.
Lack of Accessories - If you’re exercising, working, etc, jewelry can get in the way. Small earring studs on the ears, face, and/or on a necklace are simple ways to wear jewelry.
Lightweight plastic eye glasses can also keep things simple.
Sensitive types may feel their ear piercings, face piercings, and other accessories too much though. This is when they can become an uncomfortable distraction. Less is more.
Martial Arts/Meditation – Meditation will always be my number one on how to be more focused in life. I started early on by reading about Zazen, participating in group meditations, providing Hypnotherapy to clients and partners, and taking martial arts classes (Kung Fu, Tai Chi, etc).
This is a follow up to the Create Your Own Future post that you will need to read first HERE.
Simply write out your Top 20 Qualities and the Top 20 Qualities that you would like in a partner. Make sure their qualities compliment your own.
Now you can do the Yes or No exercises for other areas like physical looks (height, eye color, race, etc). You can have fun with it like the childhood game of M.A.S.H. with categories like meeting, living, etc. Some things you may already know from instincts.
Example: I already know from previous interracial relationships and childhood friends that I'll settle down in a Blasian relationship this time around. Some thing are obvious. Baby faces for life! hehe
If you don't like your answers, you can always change up the course. However with relationships, it's often best to just go with the flow. :)
With 2020 being a new 12 year cycle, many things can manifest in 3-4 years if you're ready!
I don't know what people are telling kids today during their graduation ceremonies, but I'm sure it's not 100% truth. I was actually on a plane the day of my high school graduation. My college graduation was a simple mail in of the diploma. Where are they now? Well one is probably already decomposed in a landfill somewhere and the other is folded up like a restaurant menu. lol
Here's the thing kiddos. The knowledge you gained is only as good as its application. The rest is just pieces of paper.
Although I became debt free in my 30s, I do want everyone to have a financial plan to do the same as quickly as possible.
I really do hope you majored in science and/or business/entrepreneurship because many of you will eventually do something to that nature. Even then you'll have your moments online thinking "I could of just learned all of this for free". Yep. It's ok though.
Those experiences dealing with roommates, dorm rooms the size of a closet, and college kids with eating disorders, drinking disorders, and mental disorders has made you the "momma bear" that you will eventually become in one way or another. Pets may count as your kids.
Do take care of yourself along the way as you venture out into the World doing your own thing.
For those who wish to travel as a digital nomad, do know that you are welcome in a lot of places around the World. Your "fancy" little title is really just a business traveler to most people.
It's all good.
Now to my minority brothers and sisters. Do know that you are welcome in many parts of the World if you don't like where you live. If you're going to be a minority in your own country and not like it, try being a minority in another country that you might like more. Just focus on working on yourself vs. focusing on your skin color. It's not about your skin color. It's about personal growth. Eat well, Sleep well, and Meditate well. It's about the Inner Light that you bring into a room that really matters. That energy is felt way more! I'll conclude this sentiment with more Words of Wisdom from a fellow creative "nomad" below...
Full Moons come in every month for two weeks for cleansing, healing, and release. Emotions are heightened, water retention occurs, and a desire for more rest comes about.
It's to prepare you for the fresh start New Moon ahead.
When Full Moon Lunar Eclipses come in, they have the power of 3 Full Moons! Energy is intensified for greater manifestations and releases!
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius on June 5th will be in the zodiac month of Gemini. This energy can be a catalyst for the same Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius that occurs in December 2021. It's a great time to make long term plans that you wish to see come about during this time span, especially with all that is going on right now (pandemics, protests, economies, and travel restrictions).
The World is definitely going through a "release". Your environments and the World could use a little smudging right now to clear out the negativity! Consider smudging yourself and your environments with lavender incense, sea salt scrubs, sea salt around foundations, and anything else that you find cleansing.
This current Lunar Eclipse energy also ties into the Venus Retrograde in Gemini mentioned HERE.
The Sagittarius-Gemini polarities will come in to help you evaluate how you are using your intuition with your practicality and your desire to explore the World with your desire to explore your local communities.
I spoke a bit about how the first vowel of your first name can show what you desire on a soul level. You can read it HERE.
Now I want to talk about having more than one of the same vowel in your first name. I will speak about the Strengths and Weaknesses.
More than one A: #1 Intensity
Strengths - Independent, Initiating
Weaknesses - Competitive, Self Centered, Perfectionist
More than one E: #5 Intensity
Strengths - Adventures, Variety, Down to Earth
Weaknesses - Restless, Dramatic, Hard to Commit
More than one I: #9 Intensity
Strengths - Leadership, Alternative Medicine
Weaknesses - Repressed, Emotional Reassurance Needs,
Needs to Heal the Past to avoid Projections
More than one O: #6 Intensity
Strengths - Domestic, Business Centered, Leadership
Weaknesses - Controlling, Doesn't ask for help, Takes on too much
More than one U: #3 Intensity
Strengths - Creative, Chatty, Social
Weaknesses - Dramatic, Fibbing, Hard to Commit
This is not really a humor post. It's actually based on the many things that I've observed over the years...and recently. There are certain things that give off an "unproblematic" vibe to others, despite sex, race, sexuality, etc. The funny thing that I've observed though is that some of these shifts actually create mental shifts as well!
P.S. This only applies to "sane" people though. The corrupt will just look like manipulative clowns.
Just feel out someone's aura at the end of the day.
Here's what I've observed...
Glasses = Perception of Intelligence.
Some people wear glasses without lenses for fashion purposes. Some wear them with lenses for eyesight. It's all up to you how you do style them.
Cross Necklaces = Perception of Morals.
We all know this could easily be paired with a bible for a "photo op" for some people. It doesn't matter how religious or goth you are, people seem to associate crosses with some form of moral compass. You can say the same about Angel decor, Angel costumes, etc.
There's no doubt that both cross necklaces and angel decor can influence how someone presents themselves. It may have a positive " What Would Jesus Do?" effect on the subconscious mind for those who consciously include them. It can be a tricky styling though, esp if you've been around music and religious institutions where the WWJD gets completely lost.
Green Drinks = Perception of Health.
Although I'm a regular drinker of Kale and fruit powders, those who carry around or highlight green drinks in their daily life do come off as health conscious.
The "sanity" perception is off and on depending on how much you talk about your intakes. lol There's no doubt that health and nutrition are important for mental health though...something lacking in so many people today.
Gemini season and Geminis are always an interesting zodiac sign to talk about. You really do get to see why their symbol is the twins. They really do represent the androgynous sides within everyone (Male and Female, Kermit and hooded Kermit, etc). They can be chatty, witty, and “superficial” in terms of their knowledge and/or lifestyle. They may be a jack of trades and master of none in other words. Variety is their spice.
Their opposite sign is Sagittarius. This can bring an interesting dynamic when they come together as friends, lovers, and/or exes. Your opposite sign in the zodiac is the sign that you are to learn from in terms of qualities that you need to bring up and/or release.
Side Note: I always try to take it light with air signs during Air Sign months because Air Signs (Gemini, Aquarius, Libra) can fuel Fire Signs (Sagittarius, Leo, Aries) in a good or bad way.
The rest of the opposite signs are
When the planet of love Venus heads into Gemini (April 3rd - Aug 7th), love, values, and beauty can really take on fickle tone. We may want to mix and mingle vs. fully commit. Dramas may be created out of boredom as well. Take a light approach with all of your relationships.
When Venus heads into Retrograde while in Gemini (May 13th - June 25th), it’s all about taking light approaches to love as we reevaluate our lifestyles and relationships.
Purchasing beauty products, new haircuts, clothing, and décor should be avoided due to foggy thoughts. It’s only when Venus heads direct that we can gain full clarity on our purchasing and relationship decisions.
You can Learn More about Retrograde Seasons HERE.
I'm about to celebrate my 1 Year Anniversary as a Digital Nomad overseas. The decision was actually made 2 years prior to 2019 in 2017. Yep. I took 2 years to gather everything together for the decision. It's not something you just decide to do! You have to have some shit together first. ;)
As I've worked from tropical locations, esp during lovely thunderstorms like tonight, I've thought about all of the people who continue to settle in life, relationships, etc. I try my best to provide assistance to those who need it though.
Here are some ways to get started making changes in your life...
* Think about All of the Times where you didn't settle in life. This can go back to your "rebel" childhood years where you just wanted to do things your way. Make a list if you need to. How many of you had group projects where you had to say "F it" and take charge? lol Add it to your list. ;)
* Plan ahead on paper. I'm always looking into the future, esp with astrology. The funny thing about astrology though is that it's based on circumstances of the past. Although many things change in life, some people, places, and things just never do. IT is what it is though. You make your own choices in life to seek out the resources that you need. This helps you stay objective as you plan ahead for what's best for you.
* Be flexible with yourself. The Universe vibrates to 3s. Give yourself 3 days, 3 weeks, 3 months, 3 years, etc if necessary to move forward with a goal. Nothing was built overnight. Learning curves are normal. Continue to seek out what you want until you're satisfied.
* Ask for assistance. Even if you're a DIYer, you may still need assistance for your goals. Don't be afraid to ask others who have already been there and done that. It's ALWAYS more people than you think! The one on one time is priceless and a time saver. Continue to do it before, during, and after you've achieved what you want. :)
Dome houses have always fascinated me. I would like to think that I had a “normal” childhood living all over the place, but I realized there is no such thing as a normal childhood.
My first dome house experience was right in my neighborhood. I experienced walking by a dome house for years in one area that I lived. The neighborhood kids called it the “boob house” for obvious reasons. It was always a mystery house to many of the neighborhood families.
Who knew the couple were ahead of their time in the 90s! The Jetsons were too though back in the day!
My second experience with dome houses was through a music teacher that had a dome house in the woods. It was always fun to visit her to feed the deer in her backyard. I was always fascinated by the interior design as well, esp how things fit into the two leveled space.
These are just two experiences that captured my love of unique homes.
It really benefits children and adults to befriend those with creative outlooks on life. It can take you to some creative places in life!
I spoke a bit about some of the unique environments that I experienced in Asia as well. It still comes back to dome houses though as my favorite. There’s no surprise that Japan has some of the most eco-friendly, hurricane proof, and earthquake proof dome houses to view.
One community is the "Village Zone" of Aso Farm Land. You can preview it on Tripadvisor.
You can visit its dome features HERE. These buildings are used as homes, shops, restaurants, and more!
P.S. If you have little ones, consider the soccer design above. Sleeping on the floor, esp if it's heated, is very cozy! You can spread out and avoid decorating with bulky furniture!
Would you consider living in a dome home in the future?
The Rat year had us all staying in our mouse holes, going out only for food and essentials, and “running” away from the sight of humans getting too close. Although the opportunist pandemic did lay a “mouse trap” during the fresh 12 year Chinese cycle, it did vibrate quite well to 2020’s slow and steady energies. It was a year for reevaluating your foundations (health, career, finances, and relationships). This should prepare us for the “stability” of the Ox year.
The Ox year (Feb 12th 2021-Jan 31st 2022) is all about hard work, practical mindsets, and slow and steady progress.
It can be a positive year for real estate investments for those looking to take on relocations and/or eager vacationers, esp with 2021’s restless travel energies.
Compatible Roosters and Snakes should keep an eye out for unique finds during the Ox year as well. I would extend this advice to Taurus zodiac signs as well. The Bull is their zodiac symbol after all!
It can be a positive year for pay offs from previous year investments as well.
2021’s energies may bring its share of roller coasters though.
Ox babies that are born in 2021 will be great little helpers for any tasks that need to be done in their older years. They will be part of the self-sufficient Generation Alphas. This combo should make for a strong and reliable line of young adults in the future!
As for existing Ox individuals, it’s best for them take on projects that they hold dear. The “running of the bulls” effect can occur if they take on too much at once. This can lead to energy drain and unnecessary competition. Stop and smell the roses like Ferdinand the Bull in other words. ;)
This can apply to us all in 2021 and beyond! :)
An easy way to be your own psychic and life creator is to tune into your present reality.
Create an objective plan on paper. Look at where you are now. Where do you want to be next? What action steps do you need to take to get there?
After creating an objective plan on paper, tune into your spiritual intuition. You can get Yes or No insights easily by working with spirit. You can call on Angels, Spirit Guides, Passed Loved Ones, Passed Pets, etc. You can ask for a “spirit touch” on your body if you have spirit trust issues.
This will let you know when they are around assisting you.
Figure out how you want to receive your Yes or No answers.
You can designate any body movement to be Yes or No.
Example: If you stand up and close your eyes, a body lean forward is Yes and backwards is No.
You can also use arm raises, head nods, side stretches, foot wiggles, etc.
Do what makes you feel comfortable.

Sometimes people want to know what I'm thinking about random subject matters.
I'm ok with sharing my random thoughts. You may not agree with them though. A lot is based on my observations of how society is changing, as well as the things that have come up from years of working with clients.
I'll update at the bottom of each category as things come to me.
* The amount of time some spend with their "dating" partners is equivalent to taking a nap. Two hours really is how much time some people should spend with one another.
The napping partners episode from Friends sums it up. Joey and Ross knew what was up.
* The younger generations of men are taking on more domestic roles. The World is also becoming more convenient with 3rd party assistance (delivery, personal assistants, etc).
Three may be a crowd in a living situation, but it's becoming a helpful way of living in a modern two person partnership...even if it's just the handy friend that a couple calls up because he still owns a car and a toolbox.
* Birth rates are dropping all around the World. Plants and pet adoptions are increasing. That's that.
* Love is Love so there is no reason to keep adding letters to LGBT. Your first name is fine.
If your name is complicated, a nickname will do.
* Trial marriages are a good way to go if couples want to get married. The Universe vibrates to 3s so every 3 years will be a checkpoint, esp for those first 3-6 years of marriage. You can still have a "wedding" aka party until you make it legal. You may be cool without the legalities though.
* Texting is best for scheduling with an A or B choice. This forces an answer. Keep communications face to face or over the phone for longer conversations.
* Digital nomads, freelancers, and the location independents are growing. The vacation rental market is still good to invest in, esp for women and young couples.
* Education, Nutrition, and Basic Needs are all that people need to talk about to solve systematic issues in countries. The "react" before "act" mindsets are so strange. Stop fighting and start building up these foundations for yourself and one another. People are protesting the wrong way. They need to be in front of those running their cities, as well as finding their own way into one of those seats.
* Women and Men who only want to marry or date rich aren't really bad people. They just did the math on all of those 'indulgences" of their past that they kinda regret aka Venus retrograde making women reevaluate everything a bit too clearly. lol You know people like getting things for "Free".
* Minimalism will never get old because you get rid of stuff when it gets "old". ;)
* Autotune and EDM is not how you make music.
* "Adopting" adorable Kpop Generation Z kids is like adopting a talented child for free.
You'll always be entertained. Some can really sing!
* Vegetable and fruit powders are a potent way to get in your nutrients.
You can also get artistic with colorful food creations.
Collagen powder is great as well.
* Every woman wants to feel and look pretty...men too! I'll never understand why some want to look like poisonous spiders or snakes out in nature. Attention? Warnings?
Alien & Spirit Body Attachments? Possibly.
Consider beauty powders that mix well in water for beauty from the inside out.
Save the rest of the "scares" for Halloween. Even then it's worrisome.
* Leggings and PJ pants will always be the solution to feeling "lighter" in your mind and body. Welcome them both into your wardrobe! hehe
Astrological Retrogrades come in every year for humans to Refresh, Renew, and Reevaluate.
It's best to stay flexible during these times as delays, technical errors, and misunderstandings occur.
For those who are tuned in, you will clearly see your spirit guides face palm themselves when you think up a "dumb" idea about a person, place, or thing. Just chill with those foggy thoughts until clarity returns. ;)
The most common retrograde is Mercury in Retrograde. Mercury rules thoughts, communications, and travel. It's a good time to declutter and rid yourself of what's nolonger working for you. This opens up space for energy and mindfulness. It's the perfect time to tap into your intuition or get objective on paper. Direct communications are best if you wish to be vocal afterward. This is not the time for trying to contemplate too much info at once. Keep it simple with Yes or Nos, A or B choices, etc.
2020's Mercury in Retrograde Dates Ahead...
* June 18th to July 12th
* October 14th to November 3rd
If you're not using the street view feature, I don't know how you're planning your Bucket List travels? Know before you go with a virtual tour! :)
I recently started touring northern Okinawa. Tonight I zoomed into a sea wall mural feature. Look what I came across! It's cute right? :) You can tour all of the murals with just a click.
P.S. I also look for trash. The Mother Earth in me really hates to see beautiful islands covered in litter. So far so good. Japan will spoil you with clean streets. It is handy though for people who wish to volunteer (I've done my share) or work with the communities. Just FYI.
Compatibility is based on many different factors. You can keep it simple by trusting your instincts or analyze the hell out of it. I do a little bit of both. ;)
All relationships are just mirrors at the end of the day. They reflect the qualities that we need to bring up within and/or release. All relationships are about personal growth.
Here are some fun ways to determine your compatibility with people (friends, family, lovers, etc).
* Mutual Interests and Values – This is pretty straightforward. Having mutual interests and values allows for easier communications and quality time. If you don’t know what your interests are, think back to your childhood. What did you enjoy?
* Biorhythm Compatibility (energy rhythms) – Your Physical (energy levels), Emotional (moods), and Intellectual (comprehension) levels are calculated with your birthdate.
Example: Someone with the same month, day, and year of birth will always be 100% matched on all levels. You both would be energetic at the same times, in positive moods at the same times, and chatty at the same times.
* Western Zodiac Signs – Your best zodiac matches can be based on the same element and/or element cycles.
Example: Fire Signs (Sagittarius, Aries, Leo), Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), Air Signs (Libra, Gemini, Aquarius), Water Signs (Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio)
Example: Element Cycles (Air Signs fuel Fire Signs to make them more passionate (good or bad)
* Chinese Zodiac Signs – Your best animal matches for love are great for friendships and/or romantic relationships. You can befriend any animal in the zodiac though to learn from.
* Face Reading Features – People are generally attracted to people that look like them. I’m not talking about race though. I’ve seen some adorable interracial couples (Blasians, etc) that share many of the same facial features (rounded faces (nurturing), upward eyes (optimistic), full lips (outspoken), widow’s peaks (androgynous), dimples (great sense of humor), etc).
You would think they were twins! It's not unusual though. Some women have given birth to two separate races of twins, different sexes of twins, etc. Homogeneous is a myth. Ah Science! ;)
* First Name Vowel – The first vowel is the “Soul Vowel”. It describes how someone is at the soul level, especially in their vocal communication styles!
Example: A, O (likes to get to the point in vocal conversations), E,I,U (likes to shoot the breeze and build rapport in vocal conversations).
Now you can see all the ways to determine compatibility.
It’s why people from all walks of life can get along in the World. Just find out what you have in common with people vs. what you don’t. That’s how to live your life in general.
Stay positive everyone! :)
When you're a chill digital nomad, you really want to explore places that make your work-life balance as nonstressful as possible. That is what set my journey off in 2019 to Asia.
Many people paint images in their head of certain people, places, and things, esp when exploring Asian countries. Many places are great to visit for awhile if you take your needs into consideration though. You just have to weigh the Pros and Cons for yourself.
One place that has always been on my bucket list to explore since Hawaii is Okinawa.
If you've ever explored Hawaii's local areas, you will see a few Okinawan influences
(Example: Okinawan protective Shisa (lion) statues).
It's enough to make you want to explore the Japanese "Hawaii" as well.
Here's some great points about Okinawa's longevity and happiness from their tourism website (https://www.visitokinawa.jp/information/wisdom-of-long-life).
Point A: "Okinawa Prefecture is known for the longevity of its people, but Ogimi Village in the Northern Okinawa Main Island is specifically known as the “Village of Longevity”, and people conscious of their health are becoming more and more aware of Ogimi’s name not only in Japan but throughout the world."
Point B: "When you actually visit Ogimi Village and talk to people, three main components emerge.
1. Our rich natural environment includes the sea, rivers, and mountains, and we live “without worry or hurry,” and relax.
2. We practice a diet that includes a wide range of nutrients from various sources such as meat (animal protein), island vegetables, and fruits.
3. In the spirit of the “lifelong activity”, we participate in the events and social activities of our village."
Point C: "Specifically, comparing the average Japanese meals to the diet in Ogimi, the following four points are obvious. In Ogimi Village,
a) People eat meat often
b) The consumption of green and yellow vegetables is about three times higher
c) The consumption of legumes including tofu is 1.5 times higher
d) They eat plenty of fruits
Eating meat and legumes means eating protein. Protein is a major component of cells and the ingestion of high-quality proteins such as tofu, meat, and milk is believed to improve the function of immune cells. High immunity supports a healthy long life without diseases. As for the consumption of green vegetables and fruits, including carotene (vitamin A) and also nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, potassium, iron, calcium, etc., all are believed to be a factor supporting healthy longevity."
