Seven Social Health Benefits of Meditation

Meditating is not the act of having an empty mind.

When you meditate, you get to stuff your brain with lots of experiences to introspect.

Meditating is not only happening when you sit in lotus position.

Meditation can come handy by just sitting in a couch. It may not be for an hour since small doses of meditation will also be effective.

How to Shift Your Reality by Shifting Yourself

HJ: We do not see life as it is — we see life as we are.  And yet most people assume we see the world objectively.  And therein lies a great source of pain and suffering because we are projecting our thoughts and beliefs onto the world around us, believing that this is how the world is, when it is just us playing a game with ourselves.  And so we constantly fool ourselves into believing what we already believe is true, is true.  And we create our reality and then let it control us.  But it doesn’t have to be this way. You can shift your reality  once you start seeing life as a reflection of your own heart and mind — when you understand that you read whatever meaning into situations you choose to believe, you can then use ‘reality’ as a tool for self-reflection and growth.  This is one of the most powerful shifts you can make because it switches you from a victim into a powerful creator. It is how you shift your reality by shifting yourself.

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 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

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

9 Fascinating Neuroscience Studies that Reveal the Inner Workings of Your Mind

1. Human Brains Are Hardwired for Empathy, Friendship

Perhaps one of the most defining features of humanity is our capacity for empathy — the ability to put ourselves in others’ shoes. A new University of Virginia study strongly suggests that we are hardwired to empathize because we closely associate people who are close to us — friends, spouses, lovers — with our very selves.”With familiarity, other people become part of ourselves,” said James Coan, a psychology professor in U.Va.’s College of Arts & Sciences who used functional magnetic resonance imaging brain scans to find that people closely correlate people to whom they are attached to themselves. The study appears in the August issue of the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience. Read more of this post
