Balancing Pleasure and Pain in Living a Conscious Life

Do you love living a conscious life?

A willing question maybe, but many fake their way through the answer to this question.

Religions, philosophies, and doctrines have all challenged us to embrace conscious life as energetic and engaged spirits in the hopes that we may live a happier life. Conscious life, however, is full of unhappiness, discomfort and suffering. Therefore, if we seek to fully embrace a conscious life, the embracing of negativity is mandatory for complete engagement. This reminds me of the Zen quote about fight the opposing Samurai enemy; “One must hug the enemy so that he can’t draw his sword.” Read more of this post

Mental Strength Building: The Benefits of Brain Training

With our daily lifestyles consistently filled with endless stress and distraction, we may be overlooking an often forgotten, yet majorly important aspect of our bodies: our brains. In a culture that moves a mile a minute, making some quality time for you and your mind can often be a difficult thing. We often work like mindless drones and are constantly bombarded with daily distractions such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and television, which can simply take over all of our spare moments. And not to mention other stress-filled aspects of our lives such as dealing with money, houses, children and so much more. Read more of this post

The Esoteric Meaning of Mystical Symbols & The Benefits of Sacred Geometry

By: David Weitzman

As plainly as it can be stated, geometry is a branch of mathematics. It is generally described as the study of shapes and patterns and their sizes and positions.  For the majority of us, geometry is something we learn while in school only to be forgotten soon after.

What then is Sacred Geometry?

When did “sacred” enter into the picture? 

Sacred means something holy or connected to “God”, and just when is any lowly geometric shape ever sacred? To the uninitiated, the very idea may be totally absurd. Sacred Geometry after all is a kind of philosophy not very many people can easily wrap their minds around especially when contemplating about it for the first time. Read more of this post

The 4 Keys to Effortless Manifestation

HJ: If manifestation is not effortless for you, you are doing it the hard way.  You see, when we remove whatever is blocking us from realizing and effortlessly manifesting our needs and desires, it begins to happen at the mere whim of a thought.  Many people do experience this, but the truth is, most do not.  So what is the difference between these two groups?  One has removed their attachments and subconscious emotional blockages to the degree necessary to experience this reality and the other has not yet reached that level.  It’s that simple.

You see, when people first learn about the principle of manifestation or the law of attraction, they naturally begin employing the techniques wherever they are at on a spiritual, emotional and mental level at that moment, which, for most people is not the level where effortless manifestation occurs.  In almost every case, inner work must be done to release the power of manifestation — essentially, to remove whatever is blocking it from becoming actualized in your current belief, thought and mental and emotional structures.  Without doing this, you are destined to fail because you will continually sabotage yourself unwittingly.  Sure, you might have some limited success, but the kind of life-changing creation of abundance, happiness, love, health and actualization most are seeking remains elusive and just out of reach.

Now, tapping into your true manifestation abilities is as simple as following the four steps below, however, if you have strong subconscious blockages, you will need to work on those concurrently or you will only get a fraction of the results you are intending. Read more of this post

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 Upgrade Your Genetic Code

HJ: Your genetic code is not set in stone at birth.  Researchers are now discovering that it responds dynamically to your thoughts and beliefs.  Therefore, it is absolutely possible to upgrade your genetic code by getting a handle on these aspects of yourself.

In every sense, we are now entering the age of the mind, sparked in part by the rapidly expanding and revolutionary field of neuroscience, which is proving many of the new age concept long-held suspect by many in the mainstream scientific community.  By studying the mind-body interaction more closely and with the incredible technologies now at our disposal, it is quickly becoming clear that the mind and body are very closely interrelated and have a massive influence on each other.

But what’s more is that by understanding this relationship, we can effectively manipulate it to accomplish incredible things, like healing ourselves physical and actually changing, or rather upgrading, our genetic code. Read more of this post

How the Universe Responds to Your Energetic Vibration

HJ: The universe is not static — it is dynamically responding to your every thought and emotion, the combination of which is known as your energetic vibration.  Despite what mainstream science might have you believe, we actually live in an intelligent, aware universe that is literally programmed to be a mirror of our the content of our mind and the vibration of our emotional state.

Many of you are likely familiar with the Law of Attraction, which is but one of many universal laws (like gravity and the laws of phsyics in a certain sense) that govern our existence.  The Law of Attraction is in large part responsive directly to your personal vibration.  If it is not clear to you how this is so, then you are in for a treat, because the article below outlines the mechanism of how this operates.  And, for that matter, how other aspects of our lives and the universe also respond to our unique energetic vibration.

Understanding the larger framework of how this occurs is extremely important for getting a handle on your own vibration so that you can adjust it to begin creating and attracting that which you wish to be your life experience.

This entire article touches on one of the main points that all people on the conscious path must eventually understand: that life is not happening to us, but being co-created by us.  The idea of energetic vibration helps us to understand how this operates and begin our path to mastery.

This is a fantastic article by Ken and we sincerely hope it helps you, where ever you are at on the path. Read more of this post
