“It’s a tumor”, He said.
“A huge one”.
By this time I was completely shaking, my hands holding my parents' hands sitting on both sides of me.
This diagnosis had come at the end of two whole years of increasing pain. No one thought that I, a young, athletic, psychology student could actually be the one in a million to be suffering from such an illness. Least of all me.
“What are my chances of surviving?” I vaguely remember asking.
“About 60%”, the doctor said. I could sense he was trying to be generous.
“Will my hair fall out?” I…

There’s been a lot of research and talk about happiness and some very interesting findings. Yet, happiness remains elusive for many of us.
With a global pandemic on our hands and other pressures, it’s no wonder.
But maybe it’s this crazy time, that is changing our lives so drastically that provides us with a unique opportunity to stop and discern what it is that we truly want to live for.
In my video, I talk about the 2 elements that science shows are necessary for our happiness, and then I add a higher perspective on this that comes from my…
Hatred towards Jews and Israel is a deep and ancient phenomenon that has intrigued me since childhood, as a Jew and an Israeli.
I remember myself as a child, attending school ceremonies on Holocaust days, feeling scared, ashamed, and completely confused as to how such things could even happen.
In high school, I couldn’t stop raising my hand to ask questions, trying to get to the bottom of it. I wanted to know, how come people didn’t notice what was gradually happening? How come they let it (the Holocaust) happen? And most of all….why Jews?
In our times Anti-Semitism takes…
The International Criminal Court’s chief prosecutor has opened a formal investigation into alleged Israeli war crimes. There is an outrage in Israel over this, and certainly many on both sides will want to fight for justice through whatever means possible.
The real means to reach justice, however, remains out of reach.
To find true justice we need to first take a step back and look a the root cause for the anger and wrath of the world towards Israel. If there is one thing it’s not, is rational.
There is nothing rational about the scientific finding that no other country…
When I was a young girl, I knew that success meant getting good grades so I could later get ahead in life and have a successful career. Growing up in our individualistic, competitive society was a pressure full, isolating experience.
Soon enough I found myself lost in the ocean of possibilities, feeling torn by the messages I was getting about being a successful career woman, and my more internal longing for love, closeness, and family.
There was a deep emptiness that came from that sense of aloneness in achieving the goals that were supposed to bring me happiness but didn’t.
There is so much stress, fear, anxiety, and worry going around in our collective consciousness right now.
Ironically this is detrimental to our health, and ability to cope with the pandemic.
We want to shift these mental states into more serene, empowered, and joyful ones- but how can we when the world is experiencing so much uncertainty?
There’s a lot we can do on the physical and emotional levels, like take care of our body, exercise, do what we love (hobbies, etc.) …
Self-control has long been considered a key ingredient to personal success.
Recent findings however show another side to self-control that is more ominous.
In these new findings, researchers showed that people with “high self-control”, who have previously been thought to be more pro-social (share, be kind towards others, etc), were really only doing so because they were looking out for their reputation.
Without any threat of being seen as bad, stingy, or in any way less than, they were MORE stingy, selfish, and even sadistic than others.
This comes from a very simple truth. People who have more self-control, are…
When I was diagnosed with cancer in my early twenties, the amount of stress and anxiety I was in was certainly not in my benefit.
It was only when I started to see this crisis in my life as an opportunity for personal and spiritual growth, that I began to calm down. Not only that, but my improved mindset gave me the power to overcome what was an incredibly difficult health challenge.
Our bodies are more resilient when we think hopefully and positively. And especially, when we see a higher purpose for whatever is ailing us.
In the same way…
Many women find themselves complaining about their men. Mostly, they feel hurt by how insensitive they can be, especially when it comes to remarks that make them insecure about their looks or desirability.
Often women think that men will only want them if they are beautiful, or if they look a certain way…they worry about their weight, stretch marks, or post-partum bodies. They worry their men might go off with someone else.
But there is something women need to know about what a man wants that can change all that.
Here’s an interesting fact:
Research has shown that the risk…
