Understanding yourself leads to internal peace.

Felicia Harlow - Understanding = Internal Peace

Recently, I was perusing the dictionary because I wanted to see what it said about this word "understanding." Some synonyms shared were: comprehend, absorb, appreciate, identify with, empathize, be familiar with, and value. And in the context of personal growth, to understand is to be willing to empathize with others, be in tune with our emotional selves, and to value individual differences - even when we don't agree with them. Thus the process of understanding involves a high level of mental, … [Read more...]

Faculty and Staff “In Motion” at Voorhees College

Felicia Harlow at Voorhees College

[showtime width=640 height=300] A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Coretta Jamison, Women’s Advocate of Voorhees College. I quickly learned that she is a caring, committed, enthusiastic and very important resource for students. Her influence with those students was reflected in the number of attendees at my program, Healthy Relationships 101. It was also reflected in one of her student leaders, Bazh Ragin. (Prior to my visit, Coretta shared with me that her Thursday programs are … [Read more...]

Take care of yourself for healthier relationships

Felicia Harlow - Mutual Ground Domestic Violence Center

Healthy relationships start with a focus on self-care and well-being. That is the philosophy I shared with Voorhees College students during a visit to their campus. When I asked the question, “What is most important to you in your relationships?” I received answers like trust, communication, love and respect. The idea of practicing self-care as a foundation for healthy relationships appeared to be a new paradigm for them. I can understand, though, because several years ago, it became a new … [Read more...]

I Am a Seed of Greatness!

Felicia Harlow with Students

A seed represents the beginning or starting point of all living things. Inside of the seed is all that is needed to grow into something magnificent. There is nothing to add, subtract or change within the seed to produce its harvest. And the most amazing part is that, given the proper conditions for growth, one tiny seed will produce so much more than itself. To be great is to be massive, to be talented, and to be important. Each and every one of us is born from a seed that already contains … [Read more...]

Felicia Harlow | College overload and exhaustion - Try De-stressing with Quick Coherence

That time has come again for end of semester final exams and the competition to earn high grades is fierce. After all, there are only so many top grades that professors can distribute when working with the ‘curve!’ The hope is that everyone does well so that the curve is set higher. But what if most people, including yourself, don’t perform as well as you wanted to? At that point, what happens for you?

Don’t wait until you’re ‘tired of being tired’

Do you feel like you are overwhelmed and things seem to be speeding up? Are you tired of being tired? Need a break? You might be due for a “stress check up!” One of the most effective early warning signs of a mental or physical imbalance is the development of a pessimistic outlook. And once that belief takes root in us, we start to feel irritability, frustration, anger, sadness or sometimes we even lose hope or faith in ourselves and our abilities. I call it the “tired of being tired … [Read more...]

Felicia Harlow - Balance College Stress - Natural Energy Booster #2

You've heard it before... “You’re not listening to me!” or “You need to listen better!” Was it a professor who says you're not getting it? A parent schooling you about the money you’ve wasted? Your roommate who's fed up with you ignoring them? Or your boyfriend trying to get you to agree with his perspective? What if  the person you're not listening to is yourself.
