White Wash (VIDEO)

This is my recent short White Wash. It’s about a girl who sees 12 years a slave and then feels incredibly guilty, the girl is white. She goes home to her black roommate proceeds to go on a cleaning frenzy as means of apologizing for the entire history of race relations.

Never Mind Consciousness, Mind the Subconscious

There is strong neurological research evidence to show that humans are controlled by their subconscious mind, and not their conscious minds. The subconscious mind is that which lies directly below the conscious mind and which is important for all major functions and activities of human body. Indeed it would not be untrue to state that every living micro organism in one’s physical body, every fiber in the nerves and every minute cell in one’s brain is nourished, stimulated and controlled by the subconscious. It is the subconscious that is responsible for the state of one’s wellness: physical, emotional, spiritual and psychological health. Read more of this post

How to Read Other People’s Energy

HJ: Learning how to read other people’s energy is a crucial life skill because it allows you to look beyond what people are saying and understand who they really are at their essence. While people can control what they say fairly easily, their energetic vibration cannot be faked because it is largely controlled by the subconscious mind, meaning that it is a direct reflection of their personal emotional energy. If you can read this correctly, you can get a very accurate read on someone.

However, the irony is that you must in large part read them energetically as your conscious mind can only pick up on so many details. This means being able to tune into your intuition to readily understand and read someone’s energetic vibration, although there are a few things that can be gleaned from simply observing how someone talks, acts and carries themselves in an overarching sense.

Dr. Judith Orloff, a pioneer in this field and an excellent writer to boot, does a wonderful job of explaining and elucidating this skill below. By integrating her extensive knowledge on this topic, you will be able to develop some pretty sharp intuition that will allow you to get a solid energetic handle on anyone you come across.

Stephen Hawking Proposes: “There Are No Black Holes”

Most physicists foolhardy enough to write a paper claiming that “there are no black holes” — at least not in the sense we usually imagine — would probably be dismissed as cranks. But when the call to redefine these cosmic crunchers comes from Stephen Hawking, it’s worth taking notice. In a paper posted online, the physicist, based at the University of Cambridge, UK, and one of the creators of modern black-hole theory, does away with the notion of an event horizon, the invisible boundary thought to shroud every black hole, beyond which nothing, not even light, can escape.

Alan Watts – What if Money Were No Object? (VIDEO)

Literally every single lecture I have ever heard by the sage named Alan Watts has been incredibly enlightening. I highly recommend going onto YouTube, typing his name in the search box, and listening to as many as you can digest. I also recommend ripping the mp3 from a handful of long lectures and putting them on your iPod or phone so you can listen to them on the go.

Here is a short snippet from one of his lectures. It breaks down what is wrong with society in 3 minutes and 9 seconds of pure concise genius.

Society puts so much emphasis on income and instills these values into all people at a very young age.

Money should not be the thing which directs your life. No one is denying its overwhelming presence in almost all people’s everyday life (at least in the west), however, the importance of unlocking the creative genius within, and nurturing the unique gifts and passions of each individual soul, cannot go overlooked anymore if we expect to thrive as a species.

So I (and Alan Watts) ask you ;

What would you do if money were no object? Read more of this post

Researchers Reveal Technology That Uses Sound to Levitate Objects

The essence of sound levitation technology is the countervailing of gravity. It is known that an ultrasound standing wave is capable of suspending small particles at its sound pressure nodes and, so far, this method has been used to levitate lightweight particles, small creatures, and water droplets.

The Creative Process: The Four Pillars of Creativity

When most of us think of creativity, we see it as an intuitive process.

We describe it with phrases like the: ”Aha moment” and “having a vision”, but there is much, much more to it than that. Creativity is a skill that can be learned and honed, and the main tool for implementing creativity is the creative process. Read more of this post

The Courage to Live Consciously

By: Steve Pavlina

“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature,
nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.
Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits
in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.”

Creating a Better World: Heal The Whole by Healing Yourself

By: Dr. Stewart Bitkoff

Most people would agree we all want to live in a kinder, more humane world.  A world where there is respect for human life, economic resources are shared, and the old and infirm are treated with dignity.  In each of these areas there is room for improvement.  Economically many are still without the basic necessities of life and go hungry.  Even in the richest country on earth, often the sick go untreated.

How To Consciously Remove Negative Emotions

HJ: Positive and negative emotions are really two sides of the same coin — the coin of acceptance. Negative emotions arise when we do not accept events, circumstances, things, etc. in our life as they are. Positive emotions arise when we accept our reality/experience exactly as it is and embrace the moment.  Both relate to our lack of or abundance of acceptance.  We can access this profound state of acceptance once we have internalized the realizations that come from viewing our lives/the world from a non-dualistic perspective, which simply means that we stop viewing things in terms of right or wrong, good or bad, etc.

For some people this can be hard to understand because their entire personalities and worldview are predicated on classifying events, people, things, etc. as either good or bad, right or wrong, however, this is actually a distorted view of reality, despite what the media and society would have you believe. The truth is, like Morty points out below, events only have as much meaning as we ascribe to them and by nature are neutral/meaningless in and of themselves.  We can choose to impose distorted views of right and wrong on things, but that does not make it so — that is just our subjective opinion and it keeps us highly polarized and locked into constantly experiencing negative emotions as the experience of life does not meet our standards.

However, as mentioned, you can be freed from the oscillations between positive and negative emotions, and move firmly into a state where you experience only positive emotions or an ‘enlightened’ state of contentment, by moving into a mindset of non-duality and accepting events as they actually are — opportunities for growth in our awareness and understanding of the self.  Simple as that, just like flipping a switch. Like anything in life, it’s only as difficult as we make it for ourselves. Read more of this post

How Sound Affects Human Consciousness and Health

The Dharma Of Sound Healing

By Diane Mandle | Sound Energy Healing

Music has always been recognized as having a powerful effect on human consciousness. But in the past few years, there has been more research into the science of sound, and how it can be used to improve our lives. We are learning why different kinds of music and sounds have the effects that they do on the body, emotions, mind, and spirit. Science tells us that all life is energy in one form or another. Further, this energy is eternal, changing and morphing from one shape or form to another. Each ‘energy shape’ has its own particular pattern of frequencies, or vibrations. When one form experiences a matching frequency in the form of a musical note, the form will begin to vibrate in sympathy with the note in sympathetic resonance. A strong enough vibration can even cause a form to restructure itself, as has been noted with cancer cells, crystal glasses, water crystals etc. Read more of this post

Why Avoiding The News Makes You Smarter

By: | High Existence

Some time ago I stopped reading and watching the news. No newspapers, no news programs and no internet snippets of world drama. I stopped because I didn’t feel it had any positive effect on my life and I suspected it might even have a harmful effect. Sometimes when watching or reading the news I felt myself anticipating for another big event in the world, something to shake the very core of my being. Other times I checked my smart-phone every hour to get my news-fix. Was I truly in need to know what comes through the filters of the media or was I just a news-junky? Read more of this post
