You have probably heard about honey’s health benefits, but have you ever heard about healing properties of honey-water?

How to prepare honey-water

Put one teaspoon of honey in a glass of fresh lukewarm water and mix. You will get a 30% honey mixture which has identical composition as blood plasma. Honey creates a cluster compound in the water which increases this mixture’s health benefits. Honey-water is easily absorbed by our organism.

Honey-water’s healing powers

It normalizes digestion process, which means it puts an end to the “lazy intestines” problem.

It strengthens the immune system, treats clods, is great against bronchitis and it cleanses mucus in the lungs.

Nothing can ever really prepare you for a cancer diagnosis, but it can quickly turn your life into an unplanned story.

Diagnosed at the age of twenty-eight with ocular melanoma, I was treated with surgery and proton beam therapy, and gratefully continued on with my life (though certainly a changed person).

But every year I went for a MRI of my liver/abdomen because if ocular melanoma spreads, it most likely goes to the liver. And every year when I got a clean bill of health, I felt grateful.

I didn’t live my life waiting for the other shoe to drop, though there had been other challenges along the way—being hit by a car and having shoulder surgery, struggling with infertility for years, and finally becoming pregnant only to have a miscarriage.

For each of these challenging situations, I would cry and experience the heartbreak, but then ultimately dust myself off and get back into being an active participant in my own life.

Here’s the definition I use for the word “mystic”: a person who claims to attain, or believes in the possibility of attaining, insight into mysteries transcending ordinary human knowledge, as by direct communication with the divine or immediate intuition in a state of spiritual ecstasy.

I understand it’s not a word everyone is familiar with. Buddhism is my path, but it’s not really correct to call it my religion. It’s a mystical path, not a religion. At least, that’s how I see it.

I realized not too long ago that I had a mystical worldview. Mystics have been present throughout human history. Mysticism pre-dates organized religion, but it’s something that has been almost lost in the modern world.

Here are some signs that you may be a mystic like me.

1) Personal connection rather than texts and doctrines.
Mystics want to personally connect with spirituality, rather than relying on someone else’s spiritual experience. They like to hear about the experiences of others, but aren’t tied to them.

8 Signs You May Be A Mystic

Psychologist Elaine Aron has pioneered the study of a category of human personality that is generating considerable buzz both in the media and in the scientific community: the highly sensitive person (HSP). People in this group look the same as everyone else, but they don’t respond to the world the same. The way they think, work, feel, and even love is distinctive. Tendencies like acute awareness of emotions, heightened response to loud noises and other stimuli, and the deep processing of information are all things that set HSPs apart.

Want to know if you’re an HSP? Take this online test developed by Aron and her husband, a fellow psychologist. Aron reckons that up to 20 percent of humans on the planet are highly sensitive, a trait that is found in animals, too. I spoke to Aron about what science has to say about HSPs, and how understanding how their brains are encoded may help society to better accommodate these people and make use of their considerable gifts.

Lynn Parramore: Research suggests that some people are genetically predisposed to high sensitivity. What scientific methods have been used to investigate?

Elaine Aron: There are two studies. One used was the more common method of looking for an association between a genetic variation and a personality trait. That is to take one candidate gene that we think is important for the personality variable; in this case, sensitivity. The candidate gene was a variation in the serotonin transporter gene, what is called the short-short variation, which refers to two short alleles, as opposed to one short and one long, or two longs. The short-short variation had been inconsistently associated with depression and other problems. It was seen as creating vulnerability. But many people with this genetic variation are not depressed, so researchers began to question their understanding of it, and found in numerous studies that it actually bestows many advantages. It only caused trouble when carriers had had a stressful or unsupportive childhood, or else, in some cases, were immersed in stressful life events.

I have always been a huge fan of The Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit, and practically everything to do with Middle Earth. It’s always seemed to me like there was something “more” going on than meets the eye.

There’s something about the way it’s all set up that just feels like it’s all a metaphor for the expansion and growth of consciousness happening on this planet right now… And I know that i’m not the only one who feels that way.

And though I’m speaking “as if” that “could” be true, I now have the information that demonstrates not only is it so TOTALLY true, but it’s digestible in a really easy to understand format. (Not only that, but there’s plenty of data to back this video up too).

I’ve read the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, but I have yet to make my way to the Silmarillion… Now, I’m thinking that it’s the next book on my list.

Genesis, the Lucifer Experiment, and why Humans are Special: As Written by JRR Tolkien

Physicist Dr John Brandenburg has a new, stunning theory for why we can't see life on Mars.

It was wiped out by a nuclear war.

The plasma physicist believes that the Cydonians and Utopians -- two Martian civilisations he made up -- were completely destroyed by an as yet, unidentified alien race.

Brandenburg believes that the evidence lies in the composition of Martial soil, which he suggests has the colouration and composition consistent with fallout from a series of "mixed fusion-fission explosions."

Scientists have argued that while he's, technically, not wrong about the soil thing, the discovery of high concentrations of Xenon-129 in the atmosphere should not be surprising as it's a commonly found substance.

Brandenburg will not be convinced, though. He says his theory is based on hard evidence -- using the photographs of the Curiosity rover as proof that we've already seen ancient archaeological sites, and the remnants of an ancient civilisation.

“Children today are sicker than they were a generation ago. From childhood cancers to autism, birth defects and asthma, a wide range of childhood diseases and disorders are on the rise. Our assessment of the latest science leaves little room for doubt; pesticides are one key driver of this sobering trend.” October 2012 report by Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA) (source)(source)

In 1995, 1 in every 5000 would develop autism. In 1985, it was 1 in every 2,500. In 1995, it was 1 in every 500, and today it is approximately 1 in every 68 children. This is exactly why scientists are making some extraordinary statements. (source)

‘If it is an environmental cause that’s contributing to an increase, we certainty want to find it.” - Craig Newschaffer, an epidemiologist at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (source)

Research continues to surface indicating that autism goes far beyond just genetics. It’s showing us that we might have to look at multiple factors (like environmental toxins, prescription drugs, etc) when trying to figure out what’s going on, and why autism rates continue to climb exponentially.

There is nothing you cannot be, because you are everything and from everything. You are part of all that is. You have devised a veil which keeps you from remembering our true history. It keeps you from remembering your true origin of who you are and where you came from. The true power of humanity is so great that it was necessary to create this reality full of limitations and duality. Otherwise, it would not be a game at all. We would all realize our true power and the game would be over. So why do we persist with this illusion?

To experience. To have a human experience we must attach to at least one emotion here on Earth. It could be love, fear, anger, greed, lust and many others. It could be one emotion or all of the above. But without attaching to at least one emotional base, we could not stay here on Earth. We would realize our true power and the game would be over. So we must experience limitation the its fullest to remind us that we are human.

Humanity is very much like the elephants that are tied to a rope from birth. As the elephant ages, it could easily break free from that rope at any time, but it doesn't. It accepts the restriction because it does not realize as it ages that its strength exceeds what it perceives as a limitation to its freedom. It is conditioning that keeps elephant from understanding its power.

What You Are You Know, Because It Is What You Strive To Be

There are now legal medical cannabis programs in 23 states plus Washington, DC, with pot fully legal for adults in two other states. Ironically, however, the actual healing power of the plant has barely been tapped. Smoking marijuana with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), or better, vaporizing it (using a device to bake the plant material and inhale the active ingredients), has an indisputably palliative effect and can be medically useful for pain relief, calming and appetite stimulation. It already has confirmed benefits against glaucoma, epilepsy and other specific diseases and disorders. It also gets people high. THC triggers cannabinoid receptors in the brain and this produces the sensation of being stoned. These receptors are found in the parts of the brain linked to pleasure, memory, concentration, and time perception.

But, based mostly on research overseas there is an increasing consensus that the medicinal benefits of psychoactive THC pale in comparison to the non-psychoactive cannabidiol (CBD) from the leaves of the same plant--raw and unheated. Depending on the strain, some plants are high in CBD but also contain a lesser amount of THC which is said to enhance the healing potentiality. CBD does not make people feel “stoned” and actually counters some of the effects of THC (for example, suppressing the appetite vs. stimulating it). CBD is beginning to be recognized by researchers at mainstream medical institutions around the world as a potentially very powerful weapon against cancer. Researchers Sean D. McAllister and Pierre Desprez, who conducted studies of CBD's effect on cancer cells for California Pacific Medical Center, suggest that these non-psychoactive compounds from the cannabis plant might, in short order, render chemotherapy and radiation distant second and third options for cancer patients. Based on a more recent study, McAllister and Desprez feel that CBD's "could stop breast cancer from spreading."

Dr. Donald Abrams, a cancer specialist and professor of integrative medicine at UCSF, conducted early trials involving THC medical cannabis, and now he is excited about the powerful impacts of CBD on cancer cells. The National Cancer Institute was busy researching this in the 1970s, Abrams explains, but restrictions on the use of cannabis for research in the United States resulted in most of the research on this subject disappearing in the U.S., and being picked up in other countries, such as Israel, Spain and Italy. He says existing studies point to a remarkable ability of CBD to arrest cancer cell division, cell migration, metastasis, and invasiveness. Other studies point to CBD as having great promise as a defense against Alzheimer’s disease. In a 2006 study published in Molecular Pharmaceutics, a team of University of Connecticut researchers reported that cannabis “could be considerably better at suppressing the abnormal clumping of malformed proteins that is a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease than any currently approved prescription.” The research team predicted that cannabinoid-based medications "will be the new breakout medicine treatments of the near future.”

Human Heart vs. Human Brain

All humans have a brain, many people know how to use it and only few know how to use it effectively without going over the limits of harmony created by Nature.

We also have our heart and even though it may seem that it is an organ that is much easier to use, human feelings and emotions have to go through a challenging refinement process for us to perceive what is really happening.

So what is more important – Human Heart or Human Brain?

It has been a corner stone for many arguments between scientists and spiritual teachers. What is more important – intellect or emotions, rationality or feelings? Our logic acts as a filter for information and our feelings are often very hard to interpret and understand. It seems that both of them can’t really exist together in the same room, much like fire and water. Too much water would put the fire down and too much fire would turn water into air. However, if you really know how to use both you can create something like a steam engine, where both fire and water are used to create power.

At least 124 food and outreach organizations, as well as 26 individual scientists, have signed onto a letter sent to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation protesting ongoing human trials of genetically modified (GM), beta-carotene-enriched bananas intended for Africa.

The GM bananas, which never underwent animal trials, are currently being administered to 12 students attending Iowa State University (ISU), presumably without full disclosure as to the many unknown risks involved.

According to the letter, the trials are taking place under the guidance of Dr. Wendy White, an associate professor of food science and human nutrition. Funding for the trials came from a grant issued by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

"We, the undersigned, representing diverse constituencies from across Africa and the world, working towards food sovereignty, are strongly opposed to the human feeding trials taking place at the Iowa State University involving the so called genetically modified (GM) 'super banana,'" reads the letter.

Bitter melon is a fruit that grows abundantly in Asia, Africa and the Caribbean. Traditionally it has been used to treat diabetes and other more mild diseases or illnesses.

More recently, bitter melon juice was shown to kill pancreatic cancer cells in vitro and in mice in a study done by the University of Colorado. Considering the results were seen in both in vitro and in vivo tests, the effectiveness of bitter melon juice in treating pancreatic cancer, and potentially other cancers, at a clinical level are promising.[1]

“IHC analyses of MiaPaCa-2 xenografts showed that BMJ(Bitter Melon Juice) also inhibits proliferation, induces apoptosis and activates AMPK (adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase) in vivo. Overall, BMJ exerts strong anticancer efficacy against human pancreatic carcinoma cells, both in vitro and in vivo, suggesting its clinical usefulness.”

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most difficult cancers to treat due to the fact that it is often discovered late, leaving very little time to treat. Since traditional therapies (chemotherapy, radiation, surgery etc) were not showing promising results and littler advancement was being made, researchers have been looking elsewhere to find treatment.

Interestingly, cannabis, specifically cannabinoids, have been shown to induce apoptic (programmed) death of human pancreatic cancer cells in vitro and stop pancreatic tumor growth in vivo.[4] Cannabis is perhaps one of the most popular treatments being aggressively pursued right now given its promising results both in labs and anecdotally.

Do we have a soul? Is there life after death? The afterlife is something that has been experienced by countless people since recorded history who have returned to tell their tales, with the most noteworthy account experienced first-hand by Harvard trained brain neurosurgeon of 25 years, Dr. Eben Alexander. This is not just another afterlife account that can be written off as a hallucination. Before we look at exactly how his experience of the afterlife defies all scientific explanation, lets explore his account a little bit.

Before his experience, he did not believe existence of a non-physical spirit. Trained in western medical school and surrounded by medical colleagues who are deeply invested in the materialism view of the universe, he thought that the idea of a soul was outlandish. Dr. Alexander changed his mind after he was in a coma for seven days caused by severe bacterial meningitis and experienced a vivid journey into the afterlife. He was guided by an beautiful angelic being and shown the Divine Source, which he referred to as “Om”.

He then returned to his physical body, experienced a miraculous healing, and went on to write the NY Times #1 best selling book “Proof of Heaven.” What Dr. Alexander confirms is that our life on planet Earth is a “test” of personal growth, and that the way to make progress in this test is to overcome evil while spreading love and compassion. Here are just a few other notable points he made:

– The experience of the afterlife was so “real” and expansive that the experience of living as a human on Earth seemed like an artificial dream by comparison.

Some days feel quite ordinary. Other days become lifelong memories because they are truly extraordinary. What is the difference between the ordinary and the extraordinary? For many people, it is the ability to raise their consciousness to higher levels.

Here’s some good news: you can raise your consciousness to experience extraordinary days every day. With these steps, the ordinary, boring days will fade away and become no more.

1. Find a little time to begin meditation.

When you meditate, you’re creating an environment where you must raise your consciousness. At the start, this can be an uncomfortable experience because there are a lot of factors that will fight you. Your ego may get in the way or the worries of the day may try to flood your mind. Don’t get frustrated. Just allow these thoughts and feelings to ebb and flow like river rapids and pretty soon you’ll come out on the other side.

2. Give yourself a plan to follow.

One of the biggest reasons why 3 out of 4 New Year’s Resolutions fail within 30 days is because there is no plan to follow. The same could be said about the intention to raise your own consciousness. To give yourself a true chance to achieve the extraordinary, outline the plans you intend to take to achieve your goal. The desire to change is good. The outline that will help you achieve change is better.

16 Ideas for Raising Your Consciousness

In a move completely in opposition to the promotion of good health, the Susan G. Komen Foundation has raised unnecessary red flags about the safety and nutritional value of organic foods. On its website, the organization downplays the wealth of research showing the health benefits of organic foods and even goes so far as to suggest there may be safety concerns with food not treated with pesticides.

Misleading its audience about the benefits of choosing organic foods seems a poor choice for an organization that has already seen its reputation slip in recent years. Once considered one of the most trusted nonprofits in the United States, the organization has come under fire lately with accusations of misleading statistics, use of donations, sponsor affiliations, and commercial cause promotions.

Schooling the Susan G. Komen foundation on the ‘organic certification process’

Organic farmers, ranchers and processors produce food and fiber using methods that preserve the environment and avoid synthetic inputs, such as pesticides, antibiotics and other chemicals. USDA organic standards describe how farmers grow crops and raise livestock and which materials they may use.

Who to Keep Around and Who to Let Go

Lately there have been many talks about importance of keeping your chakras in balance and protecting yourselves from energy vampires. When we were kids we all were taught – the “stranger danger” phrase, but most of us forget about the same principle when we grow up. Moreover, how can we expect energy harm from the people that we know well? Many people who are ignorant about keeping their energy in balance and staying away from energy vampires end up being an “energizer battery” for people who chronically lack their own energy. In many cases an energy vampire is someone in our close circle, a person we know or even a member of our family.

When I was growing up (I am originally from Ukraine, but back then it was still Soviet Union) we all learned that “you should save a comrade next to you even if you have to die yourself”. After coming of age and traveling the world I learned a couple of other phrases that now have become mottos of my life – “save yourself and thousands around you will be saved” and “donors die first”. Don’t get me wrong, I am all about helping other people and sharing, but things have to be kept in balance and harmony. In order for energy to be in balance it has to be exchanged and not just abused on one side.

We all are given certain potential when we are born and it is our responsibility to protect our energy that was given to us to realize that potential. Besides, when you invest your energy correctly (through your own creativity) it allows you to help more people. Sometimes we have to show tough love to those who fell into negative side of things and in many cases that is actually the most effective way to help people that are down.

Anywhere you go nowadays, whether it be your local pharmacy, grocery store or corner gas station, you’ll see products boasting their antioxidant ingredients. We’ve been taught since early childhood that antioxidants are some wonder-substance, capable of fighting off ill health. The logical next question, however, becomes “why?” and “how?” Perhaps not so surprisingly, when you ask someone these questions, they simply offer a shrug.

It’s worth taking a look into, in order to better understand the properties that antioxidants have, where they come from and how they help. After all, if Americans are going to dish out billions of dollars each year on what they believe is going to help them live healthier lives, we should understand what the rave is all about.

Antioxidants, at the core of their function, are chemicals that help our bodies prevent or hinder cell death. So, what causes cell death? Well, unfortunately, there’s a lot out there that’s not so good for our health and wellbeing. One of the primary factors toward cell death is free radicals.

Free radicals are the byproduct of environmental toxins (i.e. electromagnetic frequencies, radiation, smoke, etc.); they are molecules produced as a result of our bodies breaking down food for energy. Moreover, free radicals are a result of our bodies’ exposure to oxidation (exposure to oxygen) that can break atoms and, in turn, leave them with unpaired electrons. What happens as a result is that these unstable atoms then becomes dangerously disruptive, attacking healthy cells to take away their electrons. It’s an endless process which, if not treated correctly, can lead to severe cell death.

Nikola Tesla said it best, “the day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence. To understand the true nature of the universe, one must think it terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” Swami Vivekananda influenced Tesla’s work, an Indian Hindu monk and chief disciple of the 19th century saint Ramakrishna. Tesla was also influenced by other Vedic philosophies.

Science works best when in harmony with nature. If we put these two together, we can discover great technologies that can only come about when the consciousness of the planet is ready to embrace them, like free energy.

Intention of This Article.

I want to make it clear that my intention of presenting this information is to demonstrate that thoughts, intentions, prayer and other units of consciousness can directly influence our physical material world. Consciousness can be a big factor in creating change on the planet. Sending thoughts of love, healing intent, prayer, good intention, and more can have a powerful influence on what you are directing those feelings towards.

Following the recent terrorist hostage situation in Sydney, Australia, the mainstream media was filled with stories promoting racial and ethnic division, and suggesting that that there would be violence between Muslims and non-Muslims as a result of the isolated incident that occurred. However, instead many people have acted intelligently and compassionately following the tragedy.

Many Muslims were afraid to travel the day after the attack, and some had decided to travel without their religious clothing. Luckily, a random act of kindness sparked a viral hashtag to make Muslim commuters feel more comfortable. The viral phenomana was sparked by a woman named Rachael Jacobs who was on the train when she saw another woman remove her hijab, presumably fearing persecution.

Jacobs said that “I ran after her at the train station. I said ‘put it back on. I’ll walk with u’. She started to cry and hugged me for about a minute – then walked off alone’.

The random act of kindness inspired other Twitter users to do the same thing, and eventually the hashtag “#illridewithyou” was born.
