The Pandemic And What is has Shown Us.

“This is the end of a diabolical journey, though it can be debated that the adventure continues and never ends; the transformation of the darkness into the light has compelled each of us to stay as strong and as confident as possible. When you realize how invincible, empowered, emboldened and fantastic this world has become during this time, it makes everything that much more interesting. I can honestly say the world has come together just tremendously. In this captivating and enthralling time, we are coming to the end of this pandemic with dignity, monumental freedom and extraordinary times. It is the exuberance of faith, that gets us through this. The ability to act on it pushed the human race forward. We were determined, with our lightning power of commitment to social distancing and staying inside, we were able to lower the death toll 75% less then what it was projected to be. Although the numbers are still changing, we can stop the spread. COVID 19- is a human virus, only allowing it to reside on human contact. Therefore, if we wait for it to slow, eventually The US, will be a remarkable place again, with the biggest economy in the world. We will rebuild, stand taller than ever before and defeat this together. Remember how America and all of the Healthcare workers worked and have been working at warp speed, to make this country unstoppable. We have been turbo-charging forward, coming together like never before. Everyones exuding love, as gifted Americans praise and phenomenally surpass all expectations of oneness. Once this is all over, I know most of us are going to be over the moon. However, next time you couldn’t be better, remember these times, never take advantage of anything ever again.

Meditative Practices, 10 Reasons Why You Should have one.

Stress Less: In this day and age, stress is one of the number one complaints that people have. But stress is not just a daily annoyance; it is a real problem that can have serious—even deadly—consequences on your health. You may have heard the expression “Stress Kills,” and it is an unfortunate truth. Stress hormones take a tremendous toll on your body. Luckily mindfulness has been scientifically proven to reduce stress and increase mental and physical health.

Improve Mental Focus: Does it ever feel like you just can’t turn off your brain? We all have mental chatter that can distract us when we need to focus on work, school, or other important activities. Meditative practices are specially designed to train your mind to focus when you need it to, which will help you to direct your train of thought in the right direction.

Connect With Your Loved Ones: It might seem counterintuitive that internal practices of mindfulness and self-awareness could help you to connect to someone outside of yourself, but they can do just that because they allow you to get in touch with yourself through mental focus and attention. This translates into interpersonal relationships, and over time, you will find that it will become easier give your loved ones your full, undivided attention.

Reduce Pain: Pain is something that we all have to deal with from time to time. But dealing with chronic mental or physical pain can leave you exhausted on all levels—mentally, physically, and emotionally. Mindfulness can enable you to change your relationship to the pain you are experiencing and free up mental energy for the life you want to lead.

Sleep Better: Getting the sleep your body needs can improve your mental and physical health. Inadequate sleep leaves you in a state of constant fatigue, and insomnia can exacerbate this problem, creating a vicious cycle that can be hard to escape. Meditative practices can be a solution, as they give you the tools you need to get restful, restorative sleep each and every night. These techniques can also help you fight insomnia so that you can fall asleep quickly and break the cycle of exhaustion.

Lose Weight: It may sound too good to be true, but let me explain. Meditation can actually help you to lose weight and keep it off. This is because, as previously discussed, meditative practices reduce stress and improve sleep, and both stress and fatigue can cause weight gain and difficulty controlling appetite. In addition, mindfulness and visualizations can empower you to finally reach your ideal weight and increase your physical stamina.

Achieve Your Goals: Weight loss isn’t the only goal that meditation can assist you in attaining. Whether your goals are personal or professional, visualization is a powerful tool that can increase your motivation and drive to succeed. When you have this mental toolbox in place, you will find that you have a nearly unlimited capacity for success, as your daily practice consistently renews your motivation to achieve.

Increase Self-Confidence: Have you ever watched someone who conducted themselves with such poise that they could gain the attention of everyone in the room with only their self. Meditation can actually work to help you begin to be perceived as confident and in control. Your newfound mental composure can enable you to be assertive, make new connections with ease, and feel good about the decisions you make.

Be Inspired: It’s no secret that our innate creativity is often blocked from within our own minds. For example, for a writer, this can take the form of what’s commonly known as writer’s block. In fact, nearly everyone has experienced this frustrating lack of inspiration. Mindfulness is a great way to remove our own mental blockages and tap into the creativity naturally flowing within us in order to achieve great things, whether in science, art, or another field.

Find Peace: Along with the mental clarity you gain from your mindfulness practice, you will find that you attain a state of inner peace and calm. You will gain perspective about what is most important to you, and gratitude will begin to flow through your life as you recognize the incredible opportunities you do have, in spite of any setbacks. Mindfulness brings your awareness to the richness of everything that life has to offer.

Who Needs Chakra Balancing and Why?

Who Needs Chakra Balancing? Your Chakra Energies May be out of balance. The higher consciousness, the vibrations, and the energies accelerate to release any stagnation in your body or your (being). 


However, the releasing process can be gentle or intense depending on the agenda of your soul and the degree to which you resist the process. Distortion in Space and Time: If your material 3-D awareness is constantly shifting into and out of different dimensions, it might be the sign that your Chakras need to be balanced. The effect is characterized by spatial, temporal bodily disorientation.
 This describes a situation where an individual loses track of space and time, i.e. inability to tell where and when you are. Generally, this is a temporary phenomenon and only lasts until you are able to adjust, integrate and also ground the new vibration energies.


 Aches and Pains


 Aches and pains are great signs that our energy flow is not balanced. It makes us aware of our energy flow, and more importantly, where the energy is not flowing. This is a direct feedback from the body trying to tell us what might be going on ‘in there.’ The higher consciousness, the vibrations as well as the energies tend to flow throughout the body. However, as they move to the places in the body and mind where the blocks (old stuck and stagnant energies) are held, it feels like pain and aches. This is felt in the form of headaches and flu symptoms among others. This is just a sign that your physical body is struggling to release the toxins and the negativity held inside. So, these symptoms are actually normal. The pain and ache disappear once you are done with the healing work and all the blocks are completely released. 


Dreaming and Sleeping 


The ‘dream time” is the time when most of your issues (the once accumulated over a lifetime) are processed through the subconscious mind. These dreams are at times vivid, sexual, violent, otherworldly, perverse, non-sensical, bizarre, nightmarish and at times even alien. Actually, anything your mind can imagine, it can also dream it. The catch is that your mind is only able to use the metaphors, images, and symbols that have been programmed into its “computer bank.” Although such images may not necessarily follow the past events, they are actually the best approximation of your mind’s interpretation of them. It is not really important for your conscious ego mind to waste energy trying to make sense of the details and the storyline of the events since it is just the result of the processing of the energies behind them. Sleeping is just one of many ways our conscious ego-mind copes when overwhelmed emotionally or energetically.


 The same can be said of the higher consciousness. In the process of healing, the energies and vibrations are experienced. These stir up many unresolved issues; this results in fatigue and the feeling of lethargic. During this time, the conscious ego mind (the part of your mind and energies that wants to energize and rationalize) is put on hold to sleep. This allows you to process on the deeper levels of the soul. This continues until your subconscious mind process to the point of saturation when it can take no more. At this point, the ego-mind goes on hold, and the conscious mind takes over as you wake up. 


The Exaggerated Sensitivity 


Any form of healing is associated with the tremendous amount of energy (both physical and psychic). If in the process you are subjected to additional stimulation, it is like adding fuel to the fire. It is, therefore, possible that you may experience exaggerated sensitivity to your surroundings to the extent that you become intolerant or get overwhelmed by the external stimulation of any kind. This could be music, random noise, the TV, traffic of any kind, the light (bright or multicolored), smell, touch, texture, and jarring movements among others.

It is advisable to take a break whenever feeling “fed-up.” Consider engaging in an activity that allows you to process your stuff in peace. Consider exercising at the gym, taking a walk in the park or even leisurely drive. You can also consider camping, touring a park or traveling for a holiday. Just consider something that works best for you, even if it means staying in your room to sleep. Relationship to Food As the higher consciousness, the vibrations and the energies move through your cellular biological and emotional system; there is the likelihood that issues related to your diet may arise. This includes the cellular memories of the feasts and famines.

You may find yourself fixated on emotionally charged comfort foods, experience mood swings characterized by unusual cravings and even loss of appetite. Actually, your body is just trying to adjust and balance. It is important to avoid fighting it back or even judging. In reality, processing of the higher energies is accomplished with a lot of nutritional support. This results in changes manifested through the body emotions and the mind. This is why you should be gentle with yourself. So, if you are experiencing weight gain, it may be an indicator that you are still holding on something which could be emotion, vibrational, energetic or mental. The healing steps that you must continue with include healthy diet, exercising and drinking plenty of water.


 The Worst Case Scenarios 


It is possible that you find yourself in situations that you feared the most. This is something you only thought was a nightmare. In this case, we refer to it as the worst case scenario. Let’s say you are fired, and you have no alternative, with no savings in your accounts, your car is repossessed, your spouse runs away with the kids, you lose your home to auctioneers, someone you love gets a terminal disease, you are raped, there is death in the family, or anything worse you can imagine happens.

None of the above scenarios is pretty. However, they are challenges that can face you, and if they do, you have to deal with them. Whether you come out of it stronger or weaker will depend on you. It is not something you wish to happen, but what is the way out if it does? Well, I suggest you find a better way of dealing with the situation so that you emerge stronger.

Abandoned Lost and Lonely

Have you ever had a strong feeling of not belonging somewhere? This is when you feel isolated, alienated, estranged and maybe misunderstood. You may feel like you don’t fit in your workplace, your home, community or culture. It can be even worse when you feel like you are done with life. There is nothing else left for you to accomplish other than death. This is when the thought of suicide creeps in. You need to understand that your life is not an accident in any way. In fact, you are alive for profound reasons. The completion of these reasons may take many years if not your entire lifetime. So, when it appears like life is empty and bleak, find ways to remain patient and hang on. Seek help from Chakra balancing. This is a temporary phase that shifts the moment you go deeper with the help of Chakra balancing. 


Feeling Dazed and Confused 


This is a phase in life when you feel spaced out; it may be characterized by muddled and confused speech, and difficulty in remembering things. You even feel like you are going insane and may wonder if you have some serious mental illness. Actually, it is not what you think. This spacey sensation is only an indicator that contrary to what you think, your mind is actually opening up and expanding into new and much more liberated ways of thinking, feeling and being. In fact, you are only starting to experience reality outside what is known as the box of the 3rd dimension.

This is actually a good thing, only that you are not used to it. Medically speaking, the speech and memory are all functions of the left hemisphere of the brain. This hemisphere is also associated with worldly, horizontal and linear rational thinking. However, the higher vibrational energies are likely to activate the right hemisphere more. The right hemisphere is associated with the spiritual, vertical, transcendent and irrational ‘feelings.’ When creating a balance between the left hemisphere and the right hemisphere, you are likely to experience some temporary diversion or the shift of the energies. This shifts the attention from the dominant side of the brain to a more dormant side. The memory and speech return to normal as soon as the two sides are balanced.

Chakra Balancing Techniques

Chakra Balancing Techniques

The purpose of chakra balancing, otherwise known as chakra awakening, is to balance energy in the body. Your energies exist and function much as your physical body does. When one aspect is damaged or blocked, it can affect your emotional health as well. Chakras are focal points for your energies, starting at your head and descending down your spine.

Hands-on:

A hands-on approach is a traditional approach to balancing chakras. It requires a detailed understanding of how the chakras relate to one another, so it’s often recommended that you go to a professional.

Emotional Freedom Technique:

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) involves tapping key energy points on your body and reciting affirmations and resolutions.

Gemstones:

Gemstones are often used to cleanse and activate chakras. You place specific stones on each one of them and chant special mantras, known as seed sounds,

Meditation:

Meditation is the simplest and one of the most effective methods. It involves being in a relaxed physical state while focusing on a specific chakra. Balanced chakras can enable you to connect more easily with goals that feel right for you on a deeply emotional level.

Chakra Stones:

Chakra stones are a specific system of chakra balancing. You place a specific stone (each chakra has one) on one chakra, and you meditate.

Reality, Can you Grasp It, for real?

The term “reality” comes from the Latin word “res”, which means fact
or thing. It also pertains to the actual existence. Ultimate reality, on
the other hand, refers to those things that exist at its deepest. Your
knowledge about reality may be largely incomplete, conscious or
unconscious or highly systematic. It is structured and controls your
life.


Your understanding of reality works as a filter and monitor incoming
sensory signals. It also undergirds what you do with your life, what
you believe in, what you think and feel and much more.
Why Do You Need to Understand Reality?


An accurate understanding of reality is vital to human being. It helps
you reconcile the diverse and conflicting claims of the secular world,
modern science and religious faith. It also integrates multiple
dimensions of your life, faith, thought and systematic framework that
will offer you with everlasting strength.


If you understand reality, you can make better choices because you
are familiar with what is real and not. You can also take away
misconceptions and false beliefs which could lead to pain,
disappointment and anxiety. Your knowledge about reality can also
provide you with a great and deep satisfaction. It will also help you
understand other people even more, thus making you more mature.

Learning the Skills for Inner Guidance

If you trust your inner guidance, it often leads you to take steps that
are on placement with who you are. After doing this, you will feel
harmony. But, there are times that you want to try new things. Even if
your inner guidance tells you to take the jump, you believe that you
lack self-confidence. Why is this the case?

In this case, you will surely ask yourself, “how do
I develop my self-confidence?”

Before you begin your inner guidance, you have to ensure that you are
in a good mood. Your mood will greatly influence this skill. It is also
best to search for a safe and quiet place where you will never be
disrupted. You also need to prepare a pencil or pen for recording key
ideas.


You have to imagine how good you feel when you receive answers or
turn inward. You also need to know that the longer you drift from
yourself, the farther this may take to learn. It is also your duty to
identify that negativity from the day may require to be released as you
turn inmost.


What to Do as You Turn to Your Inner Guide?
You need to start slowly. Calm yourself and recognize that you are in
a quiet and safe atmosphere. It is also best to become aware of your
body and let yourself become comfortable and relaxed. You also need
to pay attention to the representations that your mind supplies you.
In some cases, you will know your desires from the images that your
mind provides. Then, jot down all these images for future purposes.


After Turning Your Inner Guide
Take time reading what you have written. Then, you have to apply
principles of rationality to the ideas if they are rational and healthy.
Make sure that you learn how to turn up the volume of your inner
voice. You also need to follow the good ideas that you have developed.
You can also plan to attend any workshop related to learning rational
thinking, solving your emotional problems, relaxation training,
success training, goal setting and many more. Use these workshops to
drive you to your preferred destinations.


Tips for Tapping Your Inner Guidance
There are four simple tips on how to tap your inner guidance. These
simple and effective tips include the following:


 Make Your Life Simpler – Learning inner guidance is like a
radiant light at the core of a garden. If you maintain your
garden organized and clean, you can easily find your center and
perceive the light.
 Open Up Your Space – Using garden as an example, you have to
remove all the weeds. You also need to make your space for
your inner guidance for great communication.
 Calm Your Mind – You have to remove all your worries and try
to keep calm. You will soon find out that your inner guidance
has a soft voice.
 Be Patient – During your first inner guidance, you will hear
different voices. But, you should not lose hope. You just need to
be patience and wait for it to happen.

Sacred Space, Time for Reflection

Making a room where you can reflect is not the easiest thing in the world. Well, its probably the most appropriate thing in the World, especially right now. With this pandemic going on, it gives us time to reflect and to pray and cherish the moments and people that truly matter to us. Now, if you
know the right steps and procedures, you will find it simple. Below are five ways on how to create a sacred space:


Convert a guest room or attic or just make a window seat in your
living area for self-nourishment. A space that you consider “sacred”
sets the tone for your ultimate purpose.


Hang a billowy curtain, screen and beads to emphasize the
significance of the environment as a place of privacy. This space can
be used to get inner guidance and knowledge.

You can also draw, write, paint or listen to music to set the ton or create the ambiance
and mood for prayer, meditation or contemplation, place
pillows on the floor. It would also be good to invest in a comfortable chair that
supports your back.


Arrange an altar with spiritual objects to carry the energy of
spirituality. Crystals on a table will bring energies into your sacred space immediately. In making an altar, all you need is a small table with a specific fabric.


Insightful books or soft music will also give you inspiration. You can
use this to make you feel at ease and increase your spiritual energy.


What Items to Place in a Sanctuary
There are several things you can place in a sacred place. Depending
on your choice, you can use scented candles. When burning, they can
help you concentration on meditation.

Self help books are my favorite part of my sacred space, so thats always a given.

Crystals of all kinds.


Scented candles also add a touch of aroma to your environment.
Another item that is best for sacred place is the plants. These plants
can be used to add a sweet fragrance and color to your sanctuary.


Adding desktop water also adds to your place of sacredness. It
provides the calming sounds of water and removes other noises in the
surrounding. Live fish and sounds of water also offer healing energy
for your sacred space.

Diffusors and Extracts are also perfect for setting the mood.


Types and Characteristics of Sacred Spaces
There are three distinct types of sacred spaces, and these include a
room, a location for a specific item and a location for an interruption free block of time. They share the same characteristics such as being
clutter-free, clean, quiet, and peaceful.


These sacred spaces are all easy to maintain. Therefore, it would be
easy for you to decide which type of space will meet your needs and
preferences.


Importance of a Sacred Space
If you want to relieve your stress and achieve peace of mind, you have
to create your own sacred space. Imagine a messy room with noisy
kids. If you have this kind of room, do you think you can refresh your
mind?


To have a tranquil environment, you have to ensure that no one will
disturb you. While inside your room, you can experience rest and
relaxation, and with a sacred space, you can do anything you want
without any distractions.


To create the best sacred space, some people prefer to ask assistance
from experts such as an interior decorator. Take note that you don’t
need to spend a high amount of money just to transform your room
into a sacred one. By using your creativity, you can do it all alone
within a short period of time.

Remote Viewing

Remote viewing is the ability to recognize events that are happening
at a distance from you. Even if remote viewing is often associated
with psychics, it is an inborn ability that most human beings possess.
However, most people have not developed this ability.

Remote viewing has complex concepts. It is often based on
spawning applications and scientific protocols. At present, most
intelligence specialists learn remote viewing methods through
workshops and websites.


Some, on the other hand, prefer to learn this ability through
gaining information from specific people or objects known as
structures. Everyone can practice remote viewing. You just need to
maintain an open mind and keep on practicing.


This ability is unique, as it covers the intuiting or inter-dimensional experience of a certain place, person, energy, idea, emotion, abstraction, dimension, vortex, event, emotion and
activity selected by the viewer or other person involved


Steps on How to Target Remote Viewing Structures
Learning how to perform remote viewing is not too difficult.
However, it requires an accurate process and strategy for effective
results. The following are the step-by-step procedures on how to
perform remote viewing:


Step 1: Look for Quiet Place – Similar with other psychic abilities,
remote viewing requires a quiet place. With a peaceful
environment, you are more open to subtle perceptions of your
intuitive mind. To look for quiet place, make sure that you are
completely alone. Remote viewing requires deep focus. Therefore,
it is essential to pick a position that makes you feel relaxed and
comfortable. Depending on your choice, you can lie down or sit on
the floor.


Step 2: Relax Your Body – While performing remote viewing, take
a deep breath. Continue this process in a slow rhythmic process.
Always feel the air coming into your body. Visualize that the air you breathe is refreshing your body. You also need to imagine that the air is cleansing your whole body and
anxiety is leaving you with deep relaxation. Follow this step for at
least ten minutes.


Step 3: Empty Your Mind – Since your body is relaxing, you have
to push all your doubts and problems away. Also, you need to
concentrate on what you are doing. Once the thoughts still come
in, don’t be annoyed. Just focus and continue to clear your
conscious mind.


Step 4: Pick a Structure that You Prefer to View – Simply think
about the structure you wish to see. The structure can be a person,
thing or a place.


While thinking about the structure, never allow your conscious
mind to fill in any information. Let your subconscious mind
perform all the tasks. While focusing on the structure, certain
feelings and thoughts will increase in your subconscious mind. You
also need to pay attention to details such as taste, smell, shape, size
and color.


Step 5: Jot Down Your Observations – After collecting details
about the structure, open your eyes and get your notebook. You
have to record everything you feel, see and thinks.
If you can, it is best to sketch the structural parts. The main
concept is to use the information that you receive to search real
details about the structure. Once you are done, check your
accuracy. Just visit the structure to see if you are correct.
Upon following these procedures for remote viewing, it would be
easy for you to master this ability. Take note that the more you
practice, the more precise your remote viewing will be.

The Journey of Self Discovery

The term “Self-discovery” means identifying yourself and your needs.

Self- discovery is very important. If you do not discover yourself, and know exactly what you want from life,you have no idea what you are living for.
A step to self-discovery is identifying your needs. Most people are clueless of what they
want.

To identify your needs,you first need to take a step back and think thoroughly.
Then, when you are in a relaxed state of mind, meditate and focus on your thoughts, feelings and desires.

Have you ever wondered what your life purpose really is? What your here on this earth for? Or, who you really are?

Firstly, Self discovery is something that is a beautiful thing to achieve. When you find yourself, you find meaning to your life. Many a time, people are so judgmental of others, when they should be looking inwardly on themselves. The actions that oneself is taking, before going and blaming everyone else around them. we subconsciously judge others and not ourselves. Self assessments are recommended to help you overcome your problems and troubles you have with your self and maybe your identity about who you really are as a person. Self assessments can be made by having someone close to you help you with this. Insight is reflected upon while indulging in a self assessment.

The first step to a definite self-assessment is to be completely and without utter abandonment, being honest with yourself.

Take a good look in the mirror and take the time to study the person you see.
Describe the person you see in the mirror using up to a total of 25 adjectives.

Consider using both positive and negative adjectives.

This exercise is important because you are being honest with yourself.

Dig deep. Allow for self-discovery.
The next step is to consider your likes and dislikes
Identify the root of your likes and dislikes.
Write down the activities you love doing.


• Which books do you enjoy reading?
• What kind of people do you surround yourself with?
• What are the activities you enjoy during your free time?

For all the answers that you give, provide an explanation.
Explore the explanations in depth. Next, you must write in a journal for a week, if you want to write in it for longer, by all means go ahead! This will help you completely let out all of your emotional baggage. The actions you have been taking throughout the course of this time, that you have been working on yourself. Write down what you feel most comfortable partaking in. What makes you happy and why. This will help you find who you truly are.

Your assertion energies are up, too, and you have the ability to demonstrate leadership and make instant executive decisions, so if there is a business relationship you’ve wanted to further or a project you’ve been dreaming of helming, now’s the time to step up to the plate. Now’s your time to make things happen, so don’t stay home, vegging in front of the TV. Your social life could pick up now too; you’re projecting positive energy and people will probably flock to you like moths to a flame. So don’t squander the energy and drive you feel during these three weeks!

Oh, you’re a live wire this week. Funny, pointed, staggeringly accurate. You say it like you see it, without mincing words, which keeps them snickering behind their hands and repeating your jokes by the water cooler. Fortunately you’re aware enough to avoid hurting anyone, at least not too badly. You can avoid it altogether by making jokes at your own expense, because everyone can appreciate the skill that takes. Keep the humor on you, but turn your roving mind to other subjects. You’re curious enough to learn a lot, especially by following one lead after another, which can take you places you’d never expect and can help you connect things that on the surface don’t seem at all connected. Let your mind wander far and near this week; you may be surprised where you end up. Flashes of inspiration are not unusual, or the sudden expansion of certain ideas and principles you’re familiar with. Now is a good time to break through the boundaries of your mind and the confines of ‘normal’ thinking.

Your imaginative side is highly stimulated this week, and you’re motivated toward creative writing, recording your dreams and visions and articulating your spiritual beliefs. Invite yourself to meander through the meadows of your mind while this influence is strong. You’re likely to feel tender and compassionate, even sentimental. Don’t hesitate to express these feelings to those around you; you’ll be able to explain yourself in a way that others understand, and which arouses their own empathy. You may feel slightly more sensitive than usual to odors, music or other aspects of your immediate environment, and may have to take steps to alleviate your discomfort: Open (or close!) the window, turn down the stereo, take down that loud poster that’s hurting your eyes. Be gentle with yourself, drink plenty of water and don’t press yourself to stick to any one task for very long. This is not the best influence for concentration or hard work. Instead, let creativity flow without concern for the outcome. Spiritual practices, reading or writing poetry or stories, or watching movies are all worthwhile activities now — anything that gets you into the realm of fantasy and imagination.

This transit roughly coincides with the Saturn Return periods in your life, occurring in your late twenties and again in your mid-fifties. This influence helps you to make the necessary changes needed to break free of any bonds or obligations that have been holding you back in your life. All of a sudden, you’re free to move forward with your own agenda. You’re able to make changes with a minimum of disruption or upheaval. A new job, a new relationship, a new place to live your life — whatever it is, the changes will flow smoothly and naturally from one stage to the next. Your urge at this time is to make changes that will enable you to be perfectly yourself, without direction from others. You want to live your life more fully than ever before, as an authentic individual — you no longer want to be described by the groups you belong to or the relationships you’re engaged in. You want to define yourself, and solely by your own terms. This is the time to strike out on your own. Anyone or anything you bring with you is by your own choice, not out of a sense of obligation or loyalty. Therefore, the changes you make now will encourage your growth as an individual.

The Power to A beautiful forecast for the next few weeks april 10th-30th.

Very likely you’re feeling quite mentally alert this week, curious and able to perceive things with humor and perspective. You ask yourself and others stimulating questions that inspire all of you to think bigger, grander, outside the box. The results of this think tank may surprise all of you, and will certainly expand everyone’s perceptions and ideas, which is the ultimate purpose of this energy. Now is an excellent time to promote anything — yourself, your projects, your professional endeavors, the groups you belong to. You have a knack for knowing what to say and when to say it for maximum effect, getting others’ attention and motivating them to sign on with you. Even legal agreements and contracts are win-win situations now, and will work out positively for all parties involved. This is a good time to travel or to plan a trip for the future. Even short journeys just outside your usual environment can have big impact, so be on the lookout for day-trip opportunities, and don’t pass up the chance to take one. Enjoy this period of mental stimulation.

Fortunately you’re aware enough to avoid hurting anyone, at least not too badly. You can avoid it altogether by making jokes at your own expense, because everyone can appreciate the skill that takes. Keep the humor on you, but turn your roving mind to other subjects. You’re curious enough to learn a lot, especially by following one lead after another, which can take you places you’d never expect and can help you connect things that on the surface don’t seem at all connected. Let your mind wander far and near this week; you may be surprised where you end up. Flashes of inspiration are not unusual, or the sudden expansion of certain ideas and principles you’re familiar with. Now is a good time to break through the boundaries of your mind and the confines of ‘normal’ thinking.

Get together with friends for dinner, or go on a shopping spree — just don’t max out your credit card! You’re feeling self-indulgent now, but you do still have your wits about you regarding finances, and that’s a good thing. You don’t mind spending on items of quality, and you might find some great bargains. Regarding social or business contacts, don’t confine yourself to people you already know. This period presents the perfect vibe for connecting with someone new, whether it’s a new client at work or someone attractive and very promising out on the town. Whoever you take out to wine and dine, you’ll impress them with your indulgent attitude — ‘Only the best for my friends’ could be your motto now — but more than that, you’ll just make them feel great, and want to return the favor. Business meetings or negotiations should go really well for you this week; your magnetic energy is monetary as well as social, so you may even find yourself making a lucrative deal.

Human Beings Five types *Technical Names* for Humans.

“The Five Types
¶ Science has discovered that there are five types of human beings. Discarding for a moment their technical names, they may be called the fat people, the florid people, the muscular people, the bony people and the mental people.

Each varies from the others in shape, size and structure and is recognizable at a glance by his physique or build. This is because his type is determined by the preponderance within his body of one of the five great departments or biological systems—the nutritive, the circulatory, the muscular, the bony or the nervous.

At Birth
¶ Every child is born with one of these systems more highly developed, larger and better equipped than the others.

Type Never Disappears
¶ Throughout his life this system will express itself more, be more intense and constant in its functioning than the others and no manner of training, education, environment or experience, so long as he remains in normal health, will alter the predominance of this system nor prevent its dictating his likes, dislikes and most of his reactions.”

“Effect of Eating
¶ If you do not understand why the overreaction of one bodily system should influence a man’s nature see if you can’t recall more than one occasion when a square meal made a decided difference in your disposition within the space of thirty minutes.

If one good meal has the power to alter so completely our personalities temporarily, is it then any wonder that constant overfeeding causes everybody to love a fat man? For the fat man is habitually and chronically in that beatific state which comes from over-eating.”

Altered States of Consciousness without drugs

“Although the use of psychoactive drugs can easily and profoundly change our experience of consciousness, we can also—and often more safely—alter our consciousness without drugs. These altered states of consciousness are sometimes the result of simple and safe activities, such as sleeping, watching television, exercising, or working on a task that intrigues us. In this section we consider the changes in consciousness that occur through hypnosis, sensory deprivation, and meditation, as well as through other non-drug-induced mechanisms.

“Changing Behavior Through Suggestion: The Power of Hypnosis


Franz Anton Mesmer (1734–1815) was an Austrian doctor who believed that all living bodies were filled with magnetic energy. In his practice, Mesmer passed magnets over the bodies of his patients while telling them their physical and psychological problems would disappear. The patients frequently lapsed into a trancelike state (they were said to be “mesmerized”) and reported feeling better when they awoke (Hammond, 2008). [1]


Although subsequent research testing the effectiveness of Mesmer’s techniques did not find any long-lasting improvements in his patients, the idea that people’s experiences and behaviors could be changed through the power of suggestion has remained important in psychology. James Braid, a Scottish physician, coined the term hypnosis in 1843, basing it on the Greek word for sleep (Callahan, 1997). [2]

“Hypnosis is a trance-like state of consciousness, usually induced by a procedure known as hypnotic induction, which consists of heightened suggestibility, deep relaxation, and intense focus (Nash & Barnier, 2008). [3] Hypnosis became famous in part through its use by Sigmund Freud in an attempt to make unconscious desires and emotions conscious and thus able to be considered and confronted (Baker & Nash, 2008). [4]


Because hypnosis is based on the power of suggestion, and because some people are more suggestible than others, these people are more easily hypnotized. Hilgard (1965) [5] found that about 20% of the participants he tested were entirely unsusceptible to hypnosis, whereas about 15% were highly responsive to it. The best participants for hypnosis are people who are willing or eager to be hypnotized, who are able to focus their attention and block out peripheral awareness, who are open to new experiences, and who are capable of fantasy (Spiegel, Greenleaf, & Spiegel, 2005). [6]

“People who want to become hypnotized are motivated to be good subjects, to be open to suggestions by the hypnotist, and to fulfill the role of a hypnotized person as they perceive it (Spanos, 1991). [7] The hypnotized state results from a combination of conformity, relaxation, obedience, and suggestion (Fassler, Lynn, & Knox, 2008). [8] This does not necessarily indicate that hypnotized people are “faking” or lying about being hypnotized. Kinnunen, Zamansky, and Block (1994) [9] ”

“used measures of skin conductance (which indicates emotional response by measuring perspiration, and therefore renders it a reliable indicator of deception) to test whether hypnotized people were lying about having been hypnotized. Their results suggested that almost 90% of their supposedly hypnotized subjects truly believed that they had been hypnotized.

“One common misconception about hypnosis is that the hypnotist is able to “take control” of hypnotized patients and thus can command them to engage in behaviors against their will. Although hypnotized people are suggestible (Jamieson & Hasegawa, 2007), [10] they nevertheless retain awareness and control of their behavior and are able to refuse to comply with the hypnotist’s suggestions if they so choose (Kirsch & Braffman, 2001). [11] In fact, people who have not been hypnotized are often just as suggestible as those who have been (Orne & Evans, 1965). [12]

“Another common belief is that hypnotists can lead people to forget the things that happened to them while they were hypnotized. Hilgard and Cooper (1965)[13] investigated this question and found that they could lead people who were very highly susceptible through hypnosis to show at least some signs of posthypnotic amnesia (e.g., forgetting where they had learned information that had been told to them while they were under hypnosis), but that this effect was not strong or common.

“Some hypnotists have tried to use hypnosis to help people remember events, such as childhood experiences or details of crime scenes, that they have forgotten or repressed. The idea is that some memories have been stored but can no longer be retrieved, and that hypnosis can aid in the retrieval process. But research finds that this is not successful: People who are hypnotized and then asked to relive their childhood act like children, but they do not accurately recall the things that occurred to them in their own childhood (Silverman & Retzlaff, 1986). [14] Furthermore, the suggestibility produced through hypnosis may lead people to erroneously recall experiences that they did not have (Newman & Baumeister, 1996). [15] Many states and jurisdictions have therefore banned the use of hypnosis in criminal trials because the “evidence” recovered through hypnosis is likely to be fabricated and inaccurate.

“Hypnosis is also frequently used to attempt to change unwanted behaviors, such as to reduce smoking, overeating, and alcohol abuse. The effectiveness of hypnosis in these areas is controversial, although at least some successes have been reported. Kirsch, Montgomery, and Sapirstein (1995) [16] found that that adding hypnosis to other forms of therapies increased the effectiveness of the treatment, and Elkins and Perfect (2008) [17] reported that hypnosis was useful in helping people stop smoking. Hypnosis is also effective in improving the experiences of patients who are experiencing anxiety disorders, such as PTSD (Cardena, 2000; Montgomery, David, Winkel, Silverstein, & Bovbjerg, 2002),[18] and for reducing pain (Montgomery, DuHamel, & Redd, 2000; Paterson & Jensen, 2003). [19]

Altering Consciousness

“A psychoactive drug is a chemical that changes our states of consciousness, and particularly our perceptions and moods. These drugs are commonly found in everyday foods and beverages, including chocolate, coffee, and soft drinks, as well as in alcohol and in over-the-counter drugs, such as aspirin, Tylenol, and cold and cough medication. Psychoactive drugs are also frequently prescribed as sleeping pills, tranquilizers, and antianxiety medications, and they may be taken, illegally, for recreational purposes. As you can see in Table 5.1 “Psychoactive Drugs by Class”, the four primary classes of psychoactive drugs are stimulants, depressants, opioids, and hallucinogens.

“Psychoactive drugs affect consciousness by influencing how neurotransmitters operate at the synapses of the central nervous system (CNS). Some psychoactive drugs are agonists, which mimic the operation of a neurotransmitter; some are antagonists, which block the action of a neurotransmitter; and some work by blocking the reuptake of neurotransmitters at the synapse.


In some cases the effects of psychoactive drugs mimic other naturally occurring states of consciousness. For instance, sleeping pills are prescribed to create drowsiness, and benzodiazepines are prescribed to create a state of relaxation. In other cases psychoactive drugs are taken for recreational purposes with the goal of creating states of consciousness that are pleasurable or that help us escape our normal consciousness.

“The use of psychoactive drugs, and especially those that are used illegally, has the potential to create very negative side effects (Table 5.1 “Psychoactive Drugs by Class”). This does not mean that all drugs are dangerous, but rather that all drugs can be dangerous, particularly if they are used regularly over long periods of time. Psychoactive drugs create negative effects not so much through their initial use but through the continued use, accompanied by increasing doses, that ultimately may lead to drug abuse.

“The problem is that many drugs create tolerance: an increase in the dose required to produce the same effect, which makes it necessary for the user to increase the dosage or the number of times per day that the drug is taken. As the use of the drug increases, the user may developa dependence, defined as a need to use a drug or other substance regularly.

Dependence can be psychological, in which the drug is desired and has become part of the everyday life of the user, but no serious physical effects result if the drug is not obtained; or physical, in which serious physical and mental effects appear when the drug is withdrawn. Cigarette smokers who try to quit, for example, experience physical withdrawal symptoms, such as becoming tired and irritable, as well as extreme psychological cravings to enjoy a cigarette in particular situations, such as after a meal or when they are with friends.

“Users may wish to stop using the drug, but when they reduce their dosage they experience withdrawal—negative experiences that accompany reducing or stopping drug use, including physical pain and other symptoms. When the user powerfully craves the drug and is driven to seek it out, over and over again, no matter what the physical, social, financial, and legal cost, we say that he or she has developed an addiction to the drug.

“It is a common belief that addiction is an overwhelming, irresistibly powerful force, and that withdrawal from drugs is always an unbearably painful experience. But the reality is more complicated and in many cases less extreme. For one, even drugs that we do not generally think of as being addictive, such as caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol, can be very difficult to quit using, at least for some people. On the other hand, drugs that are normally associated with addiction, including amphetamines, cocaine, and heroin, do not immediately create addiction in their users. Even for a highly addictive drug like cocaine, only about 15% of users become addicted (Robinson & Berridge, 2003; Wagner & Anthony, 2002).

”Furthermore, the rate of addiction is lower for those who are taking drugs for medical reasons than for those who are using drugs recreationally. Patients who have become physically dependent on morphine administered during the course of medical treatment for a painful injury or disease are able to be rapidly weaned off the drug afterward, without becoming addicts. Robins, Davis, and Goodwin (1974) [2] found that the majority of soldiers who had become addicted to morphine while overseas were quickly able to stop using after returning home.

“This does not mean that using recreational drugs is not dangerous. For people who do become addicted to drugs, the success rate of recovery is low. These drugs are generally illegal and carry with them potential criminal consequences if one is caught and arrested. Drugs that are smoked may produce throat and lung cancers and other problems. Snorting (“sniffing”) drugs can lead to a loss of the sense of smell, nosebleeds, difficulty in swallowing, hoarseness, and chronic runny nose. Injecting drugs intravenously carries with it the risk of contracting infections such as hepatitis and HIV. Furthermore, the quality and contents of illegal drugs are generally unknown, and the doses can vary substantially from purchase to purchase. The drugs may also contain toxic chemicals.

The study of consciousness

“Consciousness is defined as our subjective awareness of ourselves and our environment (Koch, 2004). [4] The experience of consciousness is fundamental to human nature. We all know what it means to be conscious, and we assume (although we can never be sure) that other human beings experience their consciousness similarly to how we experience ours.


The study of consciousness has long been important to psychologists and plays a role in many important psychological theories. For instance, Sigmund Freud’s personality theories differentiated between the unconscious and the conscious aspects of behavior, and present-day psychologists distinguish between automatic (unconscious) and controlled (conscious) behaviors and between implicit (unconscious) and explicit (conscious) memory (Petty, Wegener, Chaiken, & Trope, 1999; Shanks, 2005). [5]

“Some philosophers and religious practices argue that the mind (or soul) and the body are separate entities. For instance, the French philosopher René Descartes (1596–1650) was a proponentof dualism, the idea that the mind, a nonmaterial entity, is separate from (although connected to) the physical body. In contrast to the dualists, psychologists believe that consciousness (and thus the mind) exists in the brain, not separate from it. In fact, psychologists believe that consciousness is the result of the activity of the many neural connections in the brain, and that we experience different states of consciousness depending on what our brain is currently doing (Dennett, 1991; Koch & Greenfield, 2007). [6]

“The study of consciousness is also important to the fundamental psychological question regarding the presence of free will. Although we may understand and believe that some of our behaviors are caused by forces that are outside our awareness (i.e., unconscious), we nevertheless believe that we have control over, and are aware that we are engaging in, most of our behaviors. To discover that we, or even someone else, has engaged in a complex behavior, such as driving in a car and causing severe harm to others, without being at all conscious of one’s actions, is so unusual as to be shocking. And yet psychologists are increasingly certain that a great deal of our behavior is caused by processes of which we are unaware and over which we have little or no control (Libet, 1999; Wegner, 2003). [7]

“Our experience of consciousness is functional because we use it to guide and control our behavior, and to think logically about problems (DeWall, Baumeister, & Masicampo,2008). [8] Consciousness allows us to plan activities and to monitor our progress toward the goals we set for ourselves. And consciousness is fundamental to our sense of morality—we believe that we have the free will to perform moral actions while avoiding immoral behaviors.

But in some cases consciousness may become aversive, for instance when we become aware that we are not living up to our own goals or expectations, or when we believe that other people perceive us negatively. In these cases we may engage in behaviors that help us escape from consciousness, for example through the use of alcohol or other psychoactive drugs (Baumeister, 1998). [9]

“Because the brain varies in its current level and type of activity, consciousness is transitory. If we drink too much coffee or beer, the caffeine or alcohol influences the activity in our brain, and our consciousness may change. When we are anesthetized before an operation or experience a concussion after a knock on the head, we may lose consciousness entirely as a result of changes in brain activity. We also lose consciousness when we sleep, and it is with this altered state of consciousness that we begin our chapter.

Sensory experiences

“Humans possess powerful sensory capacities that allow us to sense the kaleidoscope of sights, sounds, smells, and tastes that surround us. Our eyes detect light energy and our ears pick up sound waves. Our skin senses touch, pressure, hot, and cold. Our tongues react to the molecules of the foods we eat, and our noses detect scents in the air. The human perceptual system is wired for accuracy, and people are exceedingly good at making use of the wide variety of information available to them (Stoffregen & Bardy, 2001). [1]
In many ways our senses are quite remarkable. The human eye can detect the equivalent of a single candle flame burning 30 miles away and can distinguish among more than 300,000 different colors. The human ear can detect sounds as low as 20 hertz (vibrations per second) and as high as 20,000 hertz, and it can hear the tick of a clock about 20 feet away in a quiet room. We can taste a teaspoon of sugar dissolved in 2 gallons of water, and we are able to smell one drop of perfume diffused in a three-room apartment. We can feel the wing of a bee on our cheek dropping from a centimeter above.

“Although there is much that we do sense, there is even more that we do not. Dogs, bats, whales, and some rodents all have much better hearing than we do, and many animals have a far richer sense of smell. Birds are able to see the ultraviolet light that we cannot (see Figure 4.3 “Ultraviolet Light and Bird Vision”) and can also sense the pull of the earth’s magnetic field. Cats have an extremely sensitive and sophisticated sense of touch, and they are able to navigate in complete darkness using their whiskers. The fact that different organisms have different sensations is part of their evolutionary adaptation. Each species is adapted to sensing the things that are most important to them, while being blissfully unaware of the things that don’t matter.
