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

Auras, Chakras & Energy Fields: Cleansing and Activating Your Energy Systems

By Mary Kurus

Why Look After Our Energy Systems?

Our energy systems are alive and intelligent.

They know exactly what they need for perfect health and vibrant energy. When our energy systems are disrupted, blocked, slowed down, or damaged, messages are sent to the conscious level that something is wrong and that we need to address imbalances, blockages and damage.

We are trained to look at the physical body and address its needs rather than look at our energetic systems to provide them what they need for perfect health. Our energy systems are conscious energy and this energy is connected with all energies in the Universe.

Our energy systems act as a connection between the physical world and the metaphysical or spiritual world. When we look after our energy systems we look after our deepest and most profound needs, including the physical, emotional intellectual and spiritual. Read more of this post

The Rise of Power Through The Control of Mass Consciousness

Mass consciousness is an interesting subject to discuss, mainly because no human who has ever walked this earth has the definite answer of what we are truly “doing here”, and why. Consciousness dictates our lives, for good or bad. For a majority of individuals living in modern day society, control of their own individual consciousness has been taken over by the powerful elite power structure we all must “abide” to. They want you to fall in line. You must realize there is no line to fall into. Read more of this post

What Should I Believe in?

Article by: Varun K. Sharma

There are just so intangible statements about life that almost every person might have, at least once in his lifetime, been strangled by one question which is: “What should I believe in?” Read more of this post

The 11 Keys to Manifesting Your Highest Potential

HJ: We all have a destiny, but that does not mean that our life is predetermined.  Our destiny is essentially our highest potential — our highest expression of ourself in a given lifetime.  It is what we always being called to express — that persistent nudging of spirit.  We can choose to step into this role or hide it from it by distracting ourselves with any number of mundane, illusory things as the vast majority of humanity chooses to do. The easiest way to draw the analogy is by using prominent historical leaders and figures.  Einstein, Ghandi, Martin Luther King Jr., John Lennon, Krishnamurti and so on… these souls had all reached their highest potential in their lifetimes.  We all have this potential within us — it is our birthright, our destiny.  Now, not everyone will be a leader on the world stage, but in our own way, we are destined to shape and transform the world by simply expressing our true selves in the deepest sense.

That may seem like a tall order, but it is entirely possible.  However, it calls for an incredible journey of realization, self-inquiry and discipline, which most shy away from for fear of success and failure simultaneously.  It need not be this way.  The are many guideposts along the path of self-realization and expression that can help one navigate and overcome nearly any challenge or circumstance which may present itself.  Offered below are 11 keys to manifesting your highest potential — your destiny, if you will. Now, this is not a list of fundamentals, but rather a very advanced, higher density guide based primarily on metaphysical concepts. Read more of this post

How to Understand and Transform Negative Emotions

HJ: Negative emotions tend to overwhelm us because we do not really understand why they are arising beyond the context of the situation that seems to cause them.  We think they are occurring because of a given situation — perhaps something that someone said or an event that happened in our life — perhaps something happened that we had not planned for.  However, this is not really the case. Emotions stem from our acceptance or denial of what is.  Positive emotions arise when we accept life/reality as is, without judgment   Negative emotions arise when we do not accept what is or have expectations as to what life/reality should be.  Next time a situation arises that causes either a ‘positive’ or ‘negative’ emotion, look for the primary cause — how are you either accepting reality as is or not accepting reality as is?  Once you understand this and can actively use it to analyze your emotions in context, you will find that in the case of negative emotions, they will lose about 90% of their energy and effects on you.  This practice also moves us towards greater acceptance of ourselves and the world around us which is the path towards non-duality and higher consciousness, in essence, where we are all headed, no matter how long it takes us to get there.

How to Squash Negative Thought Patterns

Suppose you have the bad habit of dwelling too much on the same negative thoughts.  And suppose there’s no outward physical manifestation associated to them.  It’s just negative thinking, like “I’m so depressed” or “I hate my job” or “I can’t do this” or “I hate being fat.”  How do you break a bad habit when it’s entirely in your mind?

How to Master Your Default Vibration

We exist in a universe that operates on vibration. You attract and manifest into your life what you vibrationally signal.

Dream Psychology: Awakening Your Inner Vision

HJ: In the dream state, our minds are freed from the everyday limits of waking consciousness.  Dreams are intensely therapeutic and can offer us deep insight into the nature of our own being and the deepest recesses of our own psyche.  Dream psychology is a field of study in which a framework for understanding the complex and often mystical nature of dreams is being developed.  Understanding this realm of your conscious experience is essential for awakening your inner vision — that is, getting in touch with the nature of your own mind, soul and  spirit.  The article below is a fascinating exploration of these topics and is highly recommended for anyone interested in understanding and interpreting their dreams, and hence, better understanding themselves.

How to Master The Placebo Effect

The placebo effect is a rather interesting topic to discuss having prior knowledge and understanding the infinite potential of the human mind. You get to believe whatever you want, good or bad, positive or negative. If you believe something to be beneficial to you, it will. If you believe you are limited in what you can do in life, well guess what? You will experience various roadblocks that confirm this belief until you decide to consciously overcome them.

5 Easy Ways to Live More Courageously

HJ: Fear is a biological mechanism designed to keep us safe and alive, however, when we react fearfully to situations that do not threaten our survival directly, it begins to cause problems in our lives and ultimately ends up limiting us from achieving our highest potential and living passionately.  Fear has its roots in our belief structures and therefore can be relatively easily eliminated by using it as a tool to better understand ourselves instead of a habitually reacting to it as if it were real.  In order to understand what beliefs are causing your fear, simply mindfully observe as it comes up and ask yourself ‘Why am I fearful?’ or ‘Where is this fear coming from?’  In this way we can begin to identify the source of our fear, which we can then begin the process of eliminating through the use of affirmations and other methods of self-hypnosis.

Eliminating fear, however, does not in itself produce courage as a byproduct.  Courage is its own unique characteristic that must be cultivated in addition to eliminating fear.  Courage is necessary for beginning the process of eliminating fears in the first place, as it takes courage to face them initially, especially if you have been hiding from it for much of your life.  The great irony, as timelessly expressed by William Churchill, is that truly the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.  When we finally cultivate the courage to do so, we realize that our fears were totally unfounded and overblown and we wonder why we were ever fearful in the first place.

Making the Choice

So often in life, we drift past the opportunity to make a choice; many times, the choice doesn’t seem vital enough to spend time on.  Or perhaps we sense that the choices are too large or too vital and that we are incapable of wielding that kind of power in our own being.  Sadly, with these fear-based hesitations, we pass by an opportunity to know more of ourselves – our spirits and our lives, and to direct our futures.
