              Have you ever felt ‘stuck’ in your life? I mean totally paralyzed, or not able to make the proper decision? Are you aware that every one of us possesses an exceptional ability that helps us to make optimal decisions in our life? It is like your vibrational meter which tells you exactly what is right for you and what you should avoid.   This meter is called your emotions, and the ability to read them is called personal emotion recognition.   Many years ago, I felt like I was completely “jammed” between few choices I suppose to make.
