Kreatsya Video: Cinderella Syndrome: Why Being a Doormat Will Not Bring You Happiness

What happens when kindness becomes a serious obstacle to your own development? We tend to think that being kind means that we should become a virtual doormat for other people and that, in the end, we will be rewarded for it big time. Guess what? That’s not how the real life functions. The quicker we understand the rules of the game, the better and more confident we will feel about playing it.

Kreatsya Video: Not Everyone Who Seems Confident Is Actually Confident

When you have low self-confidence, you always wonder how others seem to be so confident. The thing is, that’s not always the case. There is a difference between normal self-confidence and over-confidence that often stems from the same issue – low self-esteem. In this video, I’m talking about the reasons some people appear overly confident and why you shouldn’t pay much attention to it.

Kreatsya Video: Life Before Life

No matter what we believe in, the truth is that we don’t really know how life functions, whether there is life after death or even life before life. We believe that we came into existence either the moment we were conceived or the moment we were born, but, even though many people believe in some form of afterlife, we rarely think about whether there is life before life or not. In this video, I’m exploring the possibility that we had existed before we were born.

Kreatsya Video: How To Confront Rude People

It’s impossible to escape rude people. Simply put, we are surrounded by them. The problem is, though, that we don’t know how to confront them. We either run away and get embarrassed, or we get angry and enter a shouting match with someone who is rude. More often than not, we are always silent about how they make us feel. In this video, you’ll learn how to deal with them and how to be less mad about the whole situation.

Kreatsya Video: What You Haven’t Been Told About Success

You’ve been led to believe that success is somehow following a straight line. You’ve also been led to believe that success depends almost exclusively on you and your hard work. While working hard to achieve your goals is a good thing, there are so many other important aspects that get overlooked constantly, such as luck and background. And what happens if you don’t succeed – again, the whole weight is all on you which can make you depressed and frustrated, wondering what’s wrong with you and your abilities to make things happen.

Kreatsya Video: Life Doesn’t Have Rules

First, you have to go to school. Then college. Then graduate, get a job, marry, have kids – there are so many milestones and rules you have to follow in order to be successful and happy. But guess what – even after following all the life rules, you are still unhappy, maybe you’re not even as successful as you wanted to be. Why if you did everything by the book?

Antonio​ Recio: el azote de la sociedad

Todos conocemos a Antonio Recio, el mayorista que no limpia pescado. Y todos sabemos que es un tipo racista, machista, clasista y muchas otras cosas que terminan en “ista”. Pero Recio cumple una otra función: es el azote de la sociedad no solo con las cosas que dice y hace pero también con su forma de ser.  Recio, como casi todos los personajes de La que se avecina, representa el arquetipo y no un personaje real.

Also, it is still believed that some people are creative while others are not. That’s simply not true. Creativity is an inborn trait of every single one of us, where we are artists or not.

False vs Real Past Life Memories

Moon in Virgo, Sun in Aries These natives have a lot of energy they want to direct into practical matters. Sometimes their high energy and high-strung personalities can clash and their behavior can get unpredictable. Precisely because of this high energy and nervous combination, these natives often struggle with relaxation. They can get upset more easily when things don’t go as they planned. Moon in Virgo, Sun in Taurus This is a person who values both comfort and practicality in life. They want to have their life meticulously ordered and everything functioning as it should. They work best with things

The Continent Beyond Part 3

After I’d read this very curious post, it got me thinking. I was it possible that it was all real and that there was another continent somewhere over there, behind the great ice wall as the strangers called it? Or was it all a hoax made to garnish some internet attention?   Truth be told, I’d never heard of the “great ice wall” and frankly, nobody on the planet did. We’d known about North and South Pole and Greenland and out of the three, people only hadn’t explored the South Pole or Antarctica. My guess was that, if this ice

Moon in Virgo Overview

Traditionally, Virgo is a sign that doesn’t get emotions very well. They have emotions like everyone else, but unlike everyone else, they don’t understand them (except perhaps their fellow earth sign Capricorn). Virgo thinks that emotions are messy and when Virgo inhabits the Moon, the native will have problems dealing with their own emotions.   Moon deals directly with emotions and Virgo Moon people will do their best to analyze and order their emotions (and those of other people). They can’t just let go and feel things through. Instead, they have to keep it under control. Emotions don’t work that

Santa Clarita Diet Third Season – Serbian Heritage

Here comes the new season of “Santa Clarita Diet”, a hilarious horror/comedy on Netflix. I generally don’t find comedies funny, probably because the level of either sophistication or brutality is low. “Santa Clarita Diet” is different. It deals with death and zombies and gore… In a perfect suburb in a normal suburban family wanting to live a normal, suburban life. There are a few shows that intelligently satirize the suburban “perfect” life. One of those shows is “Desperate Housewives” though that show didn’t end in glory (became too boring to watch). “Santa Clarita” is the other. The creator Victor Fresco

Moon in Leo, Sun in… – Moon/Sun Combinations

Moon in Leo, Sun in Aries Here the Aries Sun gets a much needed stabilizing energy that is still fiery and energetic. Leo is a fixed sign and unlike Aries who is often reckless, Leo Moon first thinks and then acts. This is a person who will take a lot of pride in everything they do, though they may sometimes appear arrogant and entitled. Moon in Leo, Sun in Taurus This is a relatively harmonious combination given the fact that these signs have a difficult aspect (square). The native will take pride in what they do and posses.

The Continent Beyond Part 2

I will not lie to you and say that we know everything. We knew of the 7 continents: Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America, Australia and Antarctica. We also knew about Zelandia but no one thought of it as a real continent. The surface of the Earth changes constantly and what was once ground could go underwater. It doesn’t come only from the natural processes. Sometimes we also change the face of the Earth, purposefully flood a piece of land and raise another above the water level. And while our ancestors were obsessed with finding Atlantis, we were obsessed

Moon in Leo Overview

Leo is a warm and proud sign and though the Leo Moon is similar, they are not the same. The biggest emotional need for the Leo Moon native is the need to be recognized and accepted for their merits. They are proud people who strive to achieve the best in life and be seen as the best and special by everybody else. No matter the Sun Sign or the rest of the chart, Leo Moon is too strong to be hidden or mellowed down. After all, Leo is the sign of Self and when emotions are tightly tied to the sense

The OA, Part II – Deep And Philosophical Show With Too Many Ideas

I loved the first season of “The OA”, or the first part as they call it. It was different, philosophical and spiritual at the same time. All the things that I love. There are no many series like these, that work with philosophy. German series “Dark” is the other one that deals with the philosophical question, though it’s very different from “The OA”.   “The OA” is a show made for binge-watching – it’s slow-paced and you really have to get immersed in its universe to completely get it. If not, you might escape its message and it’s philosophical nature.

Moon in Cancer, Sun in… – Moon/Sun Combinations

Moon in Cancer, Sun in Aries This is not an easy combination. On one hand, the native is pushy and very active, always going forward no matter the obstacles and consequences. On the other hand, this is a very emotional and gentle person, (over)sensitive to everything around them. They are not generally problem-makers but they are oftentimes confused by their conflicting nature. Moon in Cancer, Sun in Taurus This is a gentle and little active person. They are preoccupied with comfort and living a good life (within their means). They will take care not only of themselves but of their

Moon in Cancer Overview

Moon is in domicile in Cancer. This means that, since Moon is the natural ruler of Cancer, it feels at home with this sign. Moon represents emotions, the inner self, our personality and needs and well as the feminine energy and the mother. The reason Moon feels best when in Cancer is because Cancer embodies all the qualities Moon represents: Cancer is caring and emotional, introspective and (usually) family oriented. Cancer Moons are unusually perceptive when it comes to emotions, even more than Cancer Suns. They seem to instinctively know how you feel and what you need and will do their

Moon in Gemini, Sun in… – Moon/Sun Combinations

Moon in Gemini, Sun in Aries This is a harmonious combination between a fire and an air sign. Aries is an active and easily “fired up sign” and Gemini Moon gives the native a much needed emotional cool. Gemini stabilizes Aries’ emotions. These natives are curious about everything under the sun. When they get worked up about something or someone they can become quite dogmatic. Moon in Gemini, Sun in Taurus Gemini Moon can disrupt Taurus’ idleness. There is a slight conflict between the character (Sun) and the personality (Moon) in which the native will have great needs for mental

“After Life” on Netflix – Hell is Other People

“After Life” is a new Netflix TV series situated in a small town in Britain. When I first watched the trailer it didn’t strike me as anything special. I’ve already seen the premise many times. A spouse dies and leaves the instructions on how to live without them to the living spouse. In this case, it is the wife who died of cancer and left a series of videos (I believe it was a series of videos, not just one long video) on how to live after she dies.   She tells him everything, from how to wash the dishes

The Continent Beyond Part 1

When I was younger, I used to travel a lot. It was my dream to visit every corner of the Earth and over a couple of decades, I achieved my dream. It was a long journey but a worthwhile one. You have to understand, no one can visit every corner of the Earth… it’s just an expression. I can say, though, that I’ve been to every country there is and visited all the important places. It’s more than a human can wish for. Don’t get me wrong, I‘ve never compared myself to others, at least not when it comes to

Russian Doll – Orange is the New Black Meets Groundhog Day with a Twist

“Russian Doll” is the new Netflix tv show, only a couple of weeks old. Its first season consists of 8 episodes and they are fun to watch. That is, after the third episode.   When you first start watching it you realize that the main character, Nadia, is Nicky Nichols (Natasha Lyonne) from “Orange is the New Black”. And you get super excited because who doesn’t love Nichols, right? She’s so cool and fun and spontaneous. And the acting is spot on. Then you start watching “Russian Doll” and it’s Nichols all over again. It should be Nadia, but it’s

“La casa de papel” – El atraco olvidable

Acabo de ver a “La casa de papel” de Netflix. No voy a entrar en quien produjo la serie exactamente porque eso no es lo mío así que vamos ya al lío.   Lo primero que noté fue el título de la serie – “La casa de papel” y su título inglés “Money Heist”. “La casa de papel” invita a una reflexión porque tiene varios significados. No se trata solo de la Fábrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre (donde todo ocurre) sino también puede significar que no es algo duradero y se puede desmoronar en cualquier momento. Puede significar que

Siempre bruja: la serie que deja mucho a desear

Esta es una serie colombiana de adolescentes que trata de la brujería y el viaje en el tiempo. Es un poco como la peli francesa “Les visiterus” pero con calidad mucho más baja. Creo que es la segunda serie colombiana que he visto en Netflix y tengo que decir que ambas padecen de la misma cosa – no tan buena actuación. A ver, la actuación podría ser peor, pero no lo es, aunque tampoco es estelar… Es media. Teniendo en cuenta que se trata de una serie de adolescentes, estas series en general no tienen buena actuación, ni en Colombia,

The Good And The Bad Of “Riverdale” Season 3

There are people who watch rom coms to destress… I watch a young adult/teenage tv series. Riverdale is one of them and surprisingly – it’s not bad. I preferred the first two season, though I’m interested in the third season plotline minus Veronica Lodge.   I liked the very beginning of the series, when the Blossom twins are rowing across the lake (or was it a river?… anyhow, it was water) and then the brother is found dead of, presumably, drowning.   The series mixes mystery, drama, drugs, romance and high school in a very nice way. In every season,

Moon in Gemini Overview

Believe it or not, Gemini Moon is very different from its Sun counterpart. Moon represents emotions, instinct and our inner lives. While Sun is our character or how we present ourselves to others, Moon is who we are deep down, our personality. Moon in Gemini people are usually intelligent (though astrology cannot guarantee either high nor low Iq), but unfortunately for them and those who surround them, their minds are scattered to so many places at once that they can confuse others easily (and probably themselves, too). They want to know everything… at once. Though they tend to naturally multitask,

Moon in Taurus, Sun in Aries This is a strange combination where high energy and activity meets inertia. It’s different from Sun in Taurus/Moon in Aries combination in that while you feel that you should have the energy to do stuff, you simply can’t which creates a push and pull situation. Your inner self craves tranquility and a slow-paced life while your external character is all about action.
