Time Compression and the Psychonaut

Flickr-Time-fdecomite

Dear Humans,

Today I wish to return to your awareness an aspect of the Human condition that can sense the relative nature of time. This vibration has no perceivable beginning or end, it just simply is. It’s relative to the motion and energy of those things within and around, from organic internal rhythms to the cycle of the Sun, planets, moon and stars.

Honey – The Perfect Antibiotic Capable of Solving The Problem of Antibiotic Resistance

Flickr-Honey-wildxplorer

Honey, one of the most incredible non-perishable foods that can kill almost every type of bacteria. It could also be one sweet solution to the serious, ever-growing problem of bacterial resistance to antibiotics, researchers said.

Medical professionals sometimes use honey successfully as a topical dressing, but it could play a larger role in fighting infections, the researchers predicted. Their study was part of the 247th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world’s largest scientific society.

Nano-Particles in Consumer Products Damage DNA Leading to Cancer

nanoparticle-container

One of the latest trends in manufacturing for today’s consumer products is the use of engineered nano-particles (ENP’s), yet, most people have no idea that they are consuming and absorbing ENP’s. Research is discovering that certain ENP’s may be toxic and extremely harmful to human health, causing cell and DNA damage, potentially leading to the development of cancers.

Turning the Tables: Four Steps toward Autonomy

“The only way to deal with an un-free world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.” –Albert Camus

The current unsustainable system has made us overly comfortable and ridiculously complacent in our ways. We have every luxury, and yet, for the most part, we live hurried, hollowed, nine-to-five lives, having given into the hyperreal overindulgence of the consumerist lifestyle. We’re beginning to realize that we’ve grown spiritually stagnant. We’re in an existential rut. We’re stuck –mind, body, and soul. We want more out of life than just materialistic trash, but we’re tied into our consumerist preconditioning. It’s how we were raised, after all. But it’s time we reconditioned the precondition.

Here are four ways to do exactly that, while also turning the tables on the powers-that-be and leveragi

The World Is Our Garden – Defend It or Lose It

Flickr-green-planet-NASA

When we walk into a carefully nurtured and diverse garden, we are struck by its beauty and its sense of completeness. We are enraptured by its scents and its mysteries. We are enlivened by its colours, both vivid and subtle, and we are nourished by the freshness that fills our lungs.

Altogether, the majority of sentient beings will surely concur, this garden is a most agreeable place to be – and should someone emerge who threatens to desecrate this sacred space – the reaction will be to jump to its defence and protect it against such a criminal action.

Changing The Planet Through Sexual Healing

Flickr-Red-Rose-JoshBerglund19

We live in a world that sells through sex and then shames us for it. Women are taught at a young age not to be sexual, and men are taught that women don’t want sex as bad as they do. we are taught that if a man wants to have sex, he needs to work for it, fight for it, or even kill for it. Women are taught not to be sexual, but at the same time, we place absurd standards on ourselves about how sexy we need to look

Don’t Believe Everything You Think

“If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.” ~ Peace Pilgrim

Oh my, oh my. How many of us can’t silence that chatterbox of ours, that goes on and on, and on about all kind of problems that we had, have or might have in the future? Of course, most of these problems will never happen, but what do we know? We repeat in our minds all kind of scenarios and we think of all kind of ways to get back to those people that made us suffer, all those people because of whom we can’t be happy and we can’t really live our life the way we’re supposed to, and this is just one example of crazy thinking. Of course this is insane but not everybody knows it.

Clairvoyance, Divination and the Great Work

Flickr-consicousness-AlicePopkorn

 

 

Clairvoyance is the art and science of being aware of facts, objects or situations by psychic means when they are not available to ‘ordinary’ awareness. The word is generally used to cover all such psychic awareness; but strictly speaking, clairvoyance means experiencing such awareness in the form of visual images, clairsentience means experiencing it in the form of bodily sensations, and clairaudience means experiencing it in the form of heard sounds.

Wake Up, Rise Up: Shining like Gold in Dark Times

“To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.” -Henry David Thoreau

Behold, I am the world’s first Self-inflicted Philosopher and I’m here to tell you: You’ll reap no evolution if you don’t sow a little revolution.

The current existential interregnum is a collision of conscience, the ushering in of an eco-conscious romantic instrumentalism and an antidote to modern drift.

Illumination and the Artificial Womb

Flickr-fire-dancer-NBphotostream

Dear Humans,

Today I wish to return to your awareness an aspect of the Human condition that yields to imaginary lines and abstractions. In a world otherwise composed of natural beauty and harmony, there’s an artificial grid, a template of conformity that grips the planet. And within its broad, sweeping grasp we find lines and boundaries and numbers of all sorts. They are not real in any physical sense, they are only real because we make it so. These handy little abstractions are ubiquitous throughout this synthetic construct, the artificial womb we call society.

Qi Gong – Promoting Health Through Life Energies

Flickr-Qi-Gong-Lolo_

As the efforts to diminish access to supplements and herbs in Europe and America increase, don’t forget that you can still take charge of your health by practicing Qigong. With Qigong, you can influence the subtle life energies that affect your health without relying on physical supplements.

The recognition of Chi energy’s role for good health and healing has emerged through acupuncture, Reiki, and Polarity Therapy. But all of these therapies require a practitioner. Qigong (Chi-gong), however, can be done without a practitioner.

How We Lose Our Personal Power

Fickr-Wilted-srqpix

Everyone has the potential to live an amazing life. We were all born with a vast amount of energy that, if not depleted, can absolutely be used to create amazing changes in our lives and help us live truly extraordinary lives.

The problem is as time goes by, we start to lose our personal power. We lose our inner power over time not because our body ages but because we simply haven’t been taught how to build and conserve our energy.
