10 Signs You Have Found Your Soulmate

by Sarah Voldeng
Rebelle Society

“Your soul mate makes you feel entirely intact, like no piece is missing from the puzzle. A life partner, on the other hand, can be a great supporter and long-time companion, but is limited in his or her capacity to enrich your spirit.” ~ Dr. Carmen Harra

Soul Mates. Soul Reminders. Soul Connections.
We hear about it, read about it and some of us are lucky enough to experience it.


Soul mates differ from life partners. Some people, not ever encountering a soul mate or soul connection, settle down with a life partner. These relationships can be very satisfying. They are often built on mutual trust, respect and friendship.


You see, in life, we have no control over timing and sometimes less control of circumstance. Some cannot wait forever in hopes of encountering a soul mate, so they are satisfied with a mature life-partner relationship. For some it is about survival, security or simple companionship, and the word soul mate does not resonate. The concept may seem flighty, dreamy and unrealistic. Life circumstance, timing, availability, security and many other factors may all influence our relationship choices…

Top 5 Reasons Humans Won't -or at Least Shouldn't Communicate Telepathically

By Julian Wash
Rattleberry Pie

I ponder a lot -that's what I do. If I was paid to ponder I suppose by now I could have amassed quite a sum. But when I search for the position of "professional ponderer" I'm quickly reminded that the world is not ready- or perhaps simply has no need for a ponderer such as myself. However, there are potentially lucrative positions of similar title such as "Professional Pond Sweeper" and "Pond Liner Installer" -and so for the lure of the paycheck I'm occasionally beckoned by such opportunities.

But for now merely consider me in the category of artist, writer or poet, the street musician and even closer to the mark, the crazy guy who walks alone up and down the sidewalk taking to... someone ...or something. Truth be told, the aforementioned likely boasts a much keener awareness on the topic I've embarked on. So I ask for your indulgence and even your sympathy as I attempt to examine the not-so-practical aspect of the phenomena known as telepathy.

A recent contemplation made me seriously consider the pros and cons of telepathic communication. At the onset of this thought experiment I expected the "pro" list to far exceed any cons- after all, who wouldn't benefit from the awesome power of telepathic communication. But as it turns out there is much to consider here.

DIY Homeade Ketchup! Kick Heinz & Other Unhealthy Brands

by Joe Martino
CollectiveEvolution

Ketchup is a pretty common staple in many American households. Kids seem to love it, and even as we grow up, the joy of ketchup seems to remain. In fact, McDonald’s uses about 250 million lbs. of ketchup in their restaurants annually. The problem is, is the ketchup we eat at fast food restaurants, or popular brands like Heinz that we use at home healthy?

Personally I hate the taste of Heinz. To me it’s very fake, sugary and chemically. Even the organic brand of Heinz is quite nasty for my palate. I currently use another organic brand that contains only clean and pure ingredients and I like it a lot better because it tastes like something you’d make fresh. But this! This is on my list to begin making.

Are All Ketchup’s Made Equally?


Various brands of ketchup will use different ingredients that will either make the end product healthier or not. Some of the big ones to look out for are:

The 6 Types of Eaters - Which One Are You?

by Karen Foster
PreventDisease

Emotional eaters tend to lose the least amount of weight and have the hardest time keeping it off. Then there are those who are looking for the next sugar rush, sticking to bad habits or viewing the lack of food as their only vehicle to weight loss. Whether you're a diet junkie, a comfort eater or a binger, most people fall under one of these categories. Here's how to snap out of your problematic patterns and find the right solution that works for you.

We know that the more people report eating in response to thoughts and feelings, the less weight they lose. Amongst successful weight losers, those who report emotional eating are more likely to regain.

Weight loss is one of the top resolutions made every year, yet 80 percent of people do not achieve successful weight-loss and maintenance. There are six top reasons dieters don't achieve success.

Many women expect diets to change their body shape, which may explain why some, frustrated by the lack of effect from their efforts, have trouble maintaining specific diets and revert to specific dietary patterns. If women are dieting with the belief that weight loss will lead to shape change, they will fail to achieve their aim and this is reason that diets are likely to be short-lived and, ultimately, unsuccessful.

Women with high waist-to-hip ratios WHRs typically believe that, through dieting, they can develop pear-shaped bodies. These expectations do not stem from women's misperceptions of their current body shape; most women, pear-shaped or not, correctly identified which image best represented their own WHR which is only one measurement of body types.

6 Foods that Your Digestive System Loves

by thealternativedaily

Your gut is one of the most important systems in your body. It connects your outer world with your inner world and processes all the food you eat in some way.

It absorbs nutrients you need to fuel and repair your body. It is the center of your immune system. It manufactures neurotransmitters and other proteins you need. It is one of the beginnings of chronic diseases.

You need your gut to function well. If you have a health problem, most likely you can find a correlation to your gut and it’s breakdown and dysfunction. One way to keep your gut healthy is to feed it what it needs. Here is a newsflash… your gut does not need sugar-laden, fast or processed foods. Your gut needs real food that are easy to be broken down and used by the body.

Here are 6 such foods that will supercharge your digestive system.

Garlic

Garlic is what is known as a prebiotic. It feeds healthy bacteria in the gut while destroying the unhealthy bacteria. It acts like a really nice housekeeper. It takes away all the dust and leaves fresh folded towels on your bed with a couple of mints. Not only does it do a really great job taking out the trash but it leaves a refreshing surprise behind.

Garlic is best consumed fresh and raw. For optimal digestive health, chop up a teaspoonful each night before going to bed. You will not, surprisingly have garlic breath or a garlic smell seeping out your pores but you will have a really healthy gut.

Authenticity: Finding Your Soul Within The Dreams Of Reality

by Mateo Sol
Loner Wolf

“Be yourself.”

This is the sage old advice your Mother and friends have given you countless times. But why is it so hard to apply to your life? Why is it so hard to “be yourself”?

Perhaps it’s because you don’t know who you really are.

As a teacher of Involution the first obstacle I see fellow travelers come across trying to find their path in life, is the realization that they don’t know who they are.


They fail to listen to their inner souls, and instead create mental ideas (dreams) of what they should be like and begin to doubt themselves whether they are living up to them. Afterwards they seek comforting validation by asking me questions like: “Is this what Spiritual People do?”, “If I can’t do ____ does that mean I’m not an Introvert?”, and “Do all Old Souls like ___ and _____ ?”

5 Foods Which Detox You Which You Should Regularly Consume

by worthytoknow.com

Detoxing is becoming increasingly popular in the world as industrialised and processed foods become increasingly abundant. Obesity, urinary problems, insomnia and acne can be things that you can get from consuming such foods so it may be wise to avoid them and concentrate on only eating healthy foods. However, if you detox you can negate the effects of these nasty foods and here are 5 which you should consume on a regular basis:

1. Beets
These contain a unque combination of natural chemicals (phytochemicals) and minerals which help to eradicate toxic waste from the body and serve as a companion for improving the immune system. They have Methionine and Betadine which can really get rid of the fatty acids. They can really sooth the acid-balance in the blood, otherwise known as thepH. They can rinse out the liver and foster the supply of oxygen into the cells, which means that beetroot are essential to improving your health.


2. Tomatoes
These are high in potassium and also have lycopene. The bright redcolouring is a real potent antioxidant that decreases the risk of of prostrate and some cancers. The potency of the the fruit encourages the secretion of digestive juices. They get rid of toxic waste inside and outside the body andtheir benefits can be felt no matter what format they are in such as canned, tinned or sliced.

Cannabis-Based Batteries Could Change the Way We Store Energy Forever

by Marco Torres
Prevent Disease

As hemp makes a comeback in the U.S. after a decades-long ban on its cultivation, scientists are reporting that fibers from the plant can pack as much energy and power as graphene, long-touted as the model material for supercapacitors. They're presenting their research, which a Canadian start-up company is working on scaling up, at the 248th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world's largest scientific society.

Although hemp (cannabis sativa) and marijuana (cannabis sativa var. indica) come from a similar species of plant, they are very different and confusion has been caused by deliberate misinformation with far reaching effects on socioeconomics as well as on environmental matters.

Hemp is the most universally useful plant we have at our disposal. The history of mankind's use of hemp can be traced way back in time to between about 5000 - 7000 BC.


Industrial hemp and hemp seed could transform the economy of the world States in a positive and beneficial way, and therefore should be exploited to its full potential, especially relating to energy storage.

The Secret Power of Touch

by Jeremy Dean - PsyBlog
via The Unbounded Spirit

To get around in the world, we mainly rely on our eyes and ears. Touch is a sense that’s often forgotten.

But touch is also vital in the way we understand and experience the world. Even the lightest touch on the upper arm can influence the way we think. To prove it, here are 10 psychological effects which show just how powerful nonsexual touch can be.

1. Touch for money

A well-timed touch can encourage other people to return a lost item. In one experiment, users of a phone booth who were touched were more likely to return a lost dime to an experimenter (Kleinke, 1977). The action was no more than a light touch on the arm.


People will do more than that though; people will give a bigger tip to a waitress who has touched them (Crusco & Wetzel, 1984).

It’s Never too Late to Start Living

by Luminita Saviuc
Purpose Fairy

“It is never too late to be what you might have been.” ~ George Eliot

Knowing that we only have on life to live and knowing that each day is unique and we will never get it back, how is it possible that so many of us continue living a life that has no meaning? How can so many of us wake up each morning knowing that there is nothing to be excited about, no pulse, no fire, no life, no purpose, no meaning, no nothing…

How can one spend his whole life doing things that have absolutely no meaning, and how can one betray his own self for so long? It breaks my heart, it really does.

Sometimes I wonder what was the first step we took towards disillusion, and how it all started, but of course, that is not really as important as getting back to your own path, getting back to our own self, getting back to life.


It’s our own responsibility to put our focus and attention on the things we want, not on the things we don’t want, because this will help us move closer to the things we want and away from those things, people, situations, events, ideas, etc. that keep us stuck and we don’t want.

Essential oils proven to kill viruses and bacteria

by Sharon Thomas
NaturalHealth365

Who wouldn’t want to clean their home of the unwanted viruses and bacteria that cause illness? Unfortunately, many people, unknowingly, purchase the most toxic chemical cleaners to get the job done – which only create more resistant viruses and bacteria.

The Environmental Working Group explains that commercial cleaning products can cause numerous health problems, including asthma, allergies, chemical burns and even birth defects and cancer. Simply put, avoid these poisonous products like ‘air fresheners’ and ‘scented’ cleaners. Instead, you can eliminate bacteria and viruses – naturally – with essential oils, which are concentrated essences from plants.

Are essential oils really better than chemical cleaners?

A study in the journal Molecules explains that these plant essences are widely accepted for their antimicrobial qualities, and have been for a long time. Essential oils destroy microbes like bacteria and viruses with the compounds they contain – which include phenylpropanoids and terpenes, explains the Phytotherapy Research journal.

Essential oils offer a fantastic alternative to harmful chemical cleaners, as a study in the journal Support Care Cancer found that essential oils are safe for fighting certain microbes. Of course, like most researchers will say, more study is needed.

Is there any risk? Essential oils are only potentially harmful when ingested or by causing allergic reactions in contact with the skin, but they are not likely to cause harm when used as a household cleaner. You are supposed to dilute these concentrated oils with water, base oils like almond oil or other cleansers. Diluting the oils generally cuts down on any harmful effects they might have.

Understanding The 5th Dimension

by Ridge Keough
In5D.com

The 5th dimensional reality is becoming a frequency in which humanity is growing into everyday. Our sights, smells, tastes are all changing as we raise our vibration to match that of the 5th dimension. Heightened states of awareness, compassion, and knowledge are all just beginning to flourish. As our sensory systems align to higher frequencies, we gain more awareness of the multitude of dimensions. To be cognitively engaged in the 5th dimension allows us the ability to peer into that dimension. It does not mean that you are functioning in that dimension; just your thoughts believe that you are grasping the "reality" of it. Let’s get a brief understanding of how we got to the 5th dimension.

Dimensional Light

If the 3D world is all a hologram or illusion, we never are truly engaged in that dimensional field, but rather we are superimposed in that field like a shadow. If we partake in each dimension like a shadow, what happens when we shine light on ourselves or the dimension? Science says that light exist in two states simultaneously: electromagnetic waves and linear stream of particles called photons. Light is nothing more than an electromagnetic frequency (dimension) that is temporarily interacting with another dimension(s) which is why it can have two states simultaneously. Light actually is able to exist in all dimensions simultaneously; however, this cannot be proved yet. What we are experiencing as light is the result of these states of energy. Just like all three dimensions existing in the same point in space, so does the many dimensions of light. Like the human experience, the light we know so well is nothing more than the diffraction of this composition. Our illumination on this matter is just a grain of sand in the galaxy. What happens when our belief system is struck hard enough to crack the very grain of sand and re-arrange the atomic structure?


Duality

The journey of the soul is perceived by a three dimension construct and is limited to dark and light; as above, so below. The part of the galaxy you are in holds such duality. Even the nature of your being is in duality. You exist yet you do not. Your spirit exists yet you cannot see it. The center of this galaxy you call the great central sun is composed of a binary star that is two parts. This star is creating the foundation for which the rest of the galaxy is designed for the simple reason of its push/pull. There are a few other basic laws that define your reality and this only work in the first three dimensions. When we go to higher dimensions, we do not have all of the laws of physics apply.

18 Healthy Reasons to Sip Kombucha

by Margie King, Health Coach
GreenMedInfo

Fermented tea known as kombucha has been rapidly growing in popularity among health food lovers. But it's actually been around for thousands of years. It originated in China in the third century B.C. Then it made its way to Russia, India, and Japan where it became a staple among Samurai warriors. Today it is also popular in Poland, Germany, Bulgaria, Indonesia and many other cultures.

Kombucha – or "the booch" to its fans – is made from green, black or white tea. It's fermented for at least a week with sugar and a fungal culture consisting of a mixture of bacteria and yeast. The starter is called a "SCOBY," which is an acronym for "symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast."

The culture, also sometimes referred to as the "mother," resembles a light brown, tough, gelatinous disk, which is a living, growing organism. With each batch of the tea, the organism can regenerate and create a new culture called the "baby," which can be shared with a friend much like the sharing of a sour dough starter.


Sometimes called "mushroom tea," kombucha has been associated with a long list of health benefits. It's a probiotic drink with helpful bacteria that support digestion and the immune system. It also contains enzymes, amino acids, antioxidants and polyphenols.

The stroke of midnight is here. Prepare yourselves for a quantum leap in consciousness. …..

What is next for us cosmically? The huge Mayan shift back in 2012 has definitely left us with something to think about, but is anyone really aware of just what that shift filled with subtle nuances entails? How do we identify with anything subtle in this not-so-subtle world?

Why aren’t we seeing the effects of a shift in the world? Doesn’t it feel as if things have just gotten far worse lately? Well this is largely because the shift was like Y2K on steroids and most of us didn’t even know it. Sure we went right back to resuming our normal daily lives because well, ahem, (shuffles feet) the world did not end as we thought. However, the ever-fixated external world continues to insist on its absolute necessity to be our absolute necessity, absolutely!

It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light. - Aristotle Onassis
THE ZERO HOUR

Now, if you listen between the cries and clamors for continual attention (listening be’tween things) you will hear something phenomenal – something nearly unperceivable. Something with wings has alighted in our hearts. Yet it comes to us not as a “thief in the night” at some middle of the night zero hour, but as what a thief in the night might appear. Perhaps that thief is there to relieve us of our burdens; after all, we have way too much gold for one person, eh? And, perhaps that thief from another’s point of view is a pseudo-saintly Robinhood and we need not fear him.

Archaeologists Discover Two Long Lost Ancient Maya Cities in Jungle of Mexico

by April Holloway
Ancient Origins

In an amazing new discovery in the jungles of Mexico, archaeologists have uncovered two ancient Mayan cities, including ruined pyramid temples, palace remains, a monster mouth gateway, a ball court, altars, and other stone monuments, according to a new release by Discovery News. One of the cities had been found decades ago but all attempts to relocate it had failed. The other city was previously unknown and is a brand new discovery, shedding new light on the ancient Mayan civilization.

Expedition leader Ivan Sprajc, of the Research Center of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (ZRC SAZU), explained that the finding was aided by aerial photographs of the tropical forest of central Yucatan in the state of Campeche, Mexico. Some anomalies were noticed among the thick vegetation of the forest and so a team was sent in to investigate further.

Archaeologists were stunned to discover an entire city in an area between the Rio Bec and Chenes regions, extending some 1,800 miles, which are characterised by their Classic architecture dating to around 600 to 1,000 AD.


Although the city had originally been found by the American archaeologist Eric Von Euw in the 1970s, who produced records and drawings of the ancient Mayan ruins, the location was lost and all attempts to relocate the city, which he named Lagunita, had been unsuccessful until now.

Cannabis Takes on Alzheimer’s and Dementia Successfully: Story and Studies

You’ve probably read about the positive effects of coconut oil’s medium chain triglycerides (TCMs) to produce ketones that energize brain cells in lieu of dysfunctional brain metabolism (how coconut oil can stave off and reverse Alzheimer’s). And there are herbs from Traditional Chinese Medicine or Ayurveda that are helpful while Big Pharma flounders with failures to create a profitable Alzheimer’s pharmaceutical that might help more than harm.

But now there is another effective non-pharmaceutical solution to add: Cannabis.

A Personal Story of Cannabis Ameliorating Symptoms During Late Stage Alzheimer’s


Alzheimer’s is the third most prevalent disease killer in the Western world after heart disease and cancer, and its rate of diagnosis continues to soar. In addition to the obvious cognitive dysfunctions, Alzheimer’s victims are dysfunctional with mundane matters and daily routines, have little or no recollection of close relatives and friends, and tend to be very grouchy and feisty.

Confucius says: The Top 10 Wise Confucius Quotes

by Myrko Thum
myrkothum.com

Confucius is one of the most quoted personalities ever. He is so popular that there is a special “Confucius says …” joke-selection, I mean who can say to have this kind of achievement ;)

Confucius, whose name literally means “Master Kong”, lived 551-479 BCE. He was a Chinese thinker and philosopher, whose teachings have deeply influenced not only Asian thought and life. He presented himself as a “transmitter who invented nothing” and he really pointed out the importance of learning, which is one reason he is seen by Chinese people as “The Greatest Master”.

One of the best known sources of Confucius are The Analects, a collection of his teachings, which was compiled many years after his death. A fountain of extremely mindful and wise Confucius quotes springs from these ancient descriptions.


Many of them are universal and timeless in their beautiful and simple truth and they are as valid today as on the day they left Confucius’ mouth. Here we take a look at 10 of the most inspiring quotes by Confucius.

Heart-Centered Healing Produces The Most Powerful Effect On The Human Body- 7 Simple Actions You Can Take

by Michael Forrester
Prevent Disease

Every cause of disease first begins with an imbalance in the body's energy systems, specifically, the interaction between how the heart communicates with the brain and the body. Fix that and there is no disease, ever. The heart can produce an electrical field 100 times greater than the brain and a magnetic field 5000 times greater. Which one are you using to heal?

Emotions are vibrations which influence consistently our reality. We not only think and work our way through a day, meeting, assignment, but also feel and believe our way through it. The outcome depends on both.

Simply put, the number one cause of health is your energetic and emotional state. How you connect emotionally to your overall wellness and wellbeing is more important than any supplement, food, exercise or health treatment. There is only one cause of disease and that has to do with the energy and frequency imbalances that exist within your body. Rectify that, and disease cannot exist...it would be impossible.


All the emotions are varieties of two: fear and love: Fear/stress is contagious and causes contraction: inhibits creativity, brain activity, inhibits the immune system,selective perception and over extensive periods of time leads to breakdown. Love (positive beliefs and emotions) has high impact and causes expansion: creativity, physical and mental endurance, more productivity in shorter time because we take decisions quicker because we are receptive and highly perceptive. This a question of Math, HeartMath (as per the contribution in this field of the HeartMath Institute): when one has accurate information, takes better decisions.

7 Tips To Awaken Your Hidden Psychic Power

by Spirit Science and Metaphysics

Have you ever known the phone was going to ring before it happened? Or maybe you had an intuition about what someone was going to say before they said it? Have you ever had a dream that came true? Some people are said to be fully psychic but we are all intuitive to some degree. If you follow these steps you’ll improve your psychic abilities to a noticeable degree and they may even become useful to you in your daily life:

Inner Psychic Tip #1 – Meditation

While there are many meditation practices all over the world, one thing is for certain, quieting your mind is the first step toward understanding that you are not your thoughts and that thoughts simply exist. When you have a clear distinction between what you know as you and what you know as thoughts, you can begin to witness the nature of thoughts that are in what we call “the field”. The field of thoughts are available like wifi signals with certain places and people being more conductive for them and some places being less so. Thoughts are more seen as a translation of energy, some people being clear translators and others being very distorted. The more into our ego we are, the less of a clear channel you can receive. This is because the energy you translate will tend to become what we call “personalized” by our personalities of course.


The best psychics are able to stop the mind chatter and allow the messages from angels, spirit guides, departed loved ones and the Divine to come through. If you wish to develop your own intuitive abilities, meditation is key to calming the mental chatter.

The Power and Psychology of Words On Our Minds

Learning Mind

“No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.” ~Robin Williams

There is this overwhelming notion among a large part of society that “words don’t matter” and until action sees the light of day, then what we say does not matter. To those people and nay sayers, I would love to explain to you why it is that words do matter and the profound effect they have on each and every one of us. Because unless someone stands up to those with hearts full of doubt, nothing will ever get better, and this world deserves to become a place where words can both lift us from the precipice and send us on an adventure through the lens of our neighbor.
