How Can Music Benefit The Development of The Adolescent Brain?

It’s like an old mantra; “Music aids in brain development in children…” We are constantly bombard with this statement as if we were a being vocally blasted by a victorian school teacher. At this point we turn the other way and say, “I know I know.” But do we know? 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

Four Pillars of Creativity Pt. 2

For info on my first post : The Four Pillars of Creativity

This comes off as a vague musing; however, it is the honest truth. The archetypal artist has the gift of being in tune with their surroundings and can find beauty and inspiration in life’s simple things. In terms of the creative process, this is called an Idea Net. 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

The Holy Trinity of Mysticism

I have chosen to preface this article with a short paragraph that I wrote years ago after a deep meditation. I came out of it, went straight to my computer, and wrote this out word for word as you see it now in less than a minute.

“The universe sprang forth through a cosmic outpouring of energy from a single, non-existent point derived in void. This outpouring was nothing more or less than the One Thing opening its eye to observe itself. Past and future are false concepts, for only this one moment exists always present. After the One Thing has finished observing itself in this moment, it will collapse in on itself, and fall back to the void from which it was first issued forth. This process repeats for infinity with no beginning or end.” 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.

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

Stunning Visual Map of How Emotions Are Experienced in The Body

HJ:  Have you ever noticed that you feel specific emotions in different parts of your body? A team of Finnish researchers has created an innovative visual map that shows how different ares of our body are stimulated by different emotions, adding further proof to the growing realization that there is a very real, direct link between the body and the mind.  So much so that scientists are now able to measure the level of impact that provoked emotional responses have on specific areas of the body.  These findings could have major implications for understanding and diagnosing disease states and also creating therapies and treatments to heal them.  Furthermore, for individuals interested in exploring the connection between the mind and body, this incredibly detailed visualization will likely provide many insights into the complex relationship between the two.

How to Use Your Subconscious Mind Power to Create Permanent Health

HJ: Your subconscious mind is incredibly powerful and you can leverage its strength to create permanent health if you simply take the time to understand how it works. This knowledge will empower you with the tools you need to direct its incredible power in any direction you desire, not just towards health, although this is certainly a worthy use.

Most people believe that health is a purely physical process — simply exercise, eat right and take care of your body and you will live a long life free of disease or illness. While feeding the body properly is important, true health comes from the mind. The mind controls the body and holds ultimate power over all of its processes and functions and if ones mind is working against oneself through limiting beliefs or self-defeating, negative or contradictory thought processes, these will eventually manifest as physical symptoms in the body that no amount of nutrition, diet or exercise can correct. Until the root cause in the mind is dealt with, the problem will persist.

And herein lies the key to lifelong well being… By understanding that this is where true health originates, you can then begin to focus your efforts on healing those parts of it that may be keeping you from experiencing it in some way. This article will help you to understand exactly what parts need to be healed to create health and how the subconscious mind works so that you can know exactly what needs to be done in any situation to solve whatever problem it is you are facing.

You will also learn how true health is created and maintained so that you can begin to apply those principles to your own life immediately. This is powerful knowledge that when embraced and integrated into your being will produce results like clockwork. Read more of this post
