Mindfulness from meditation associated with lower stress hormone

S.O.T.T: Focusing on the present rather than letting the mind drift may help to lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol, suggests new research from the Shamatha Project at the University of California, Davis. The ability to focus mental resources on immediate experience is an aspect of mindfulness, which can be improved by meditation training.  "This is the first study to show a direct relation between resting cortisol and scores on any type of mindfulness scale," said Tonya Jacobs, a postdoctoral researcher at the UC Davis Center for Mind and Brain and first author of a paper describing the work, published this week in the journal Health Psychology. High levels of cortisol, a hormone produced by the adrenal gland, are associated with physical or emotional stress. Prolonged release of the hormone contributes to wide-ranging, adverse effects on a number of physiological more>>>...

Small humanoid creature photographed at Texas gas plant

S.O.T.T: Nov. 2012 - I was working the night shift on an x-ray crew at a material gas plant. This was around 3 am and there was only four of us in the plant at the time. I took this picture after seeing something swaying side to side out of the corner of my eye. I was in the basket of a man lift coming down when I took the picture. By the time I unhooked my harness to get out of the basket the creature was gone. The police were called and walked premises. The officer told me there were 26 UFO sighting calls throughout that night. If you zoom in you can see the silhouettes of eyes and elongated mouth. I have no doubt of what I believed I seen that night. The other person that saw it with me took off running for the more>>>...

The latest Mars probe photograph, The same old, same old lifeless desert landscape to protect the 'No Life On Mars' deception. Interesting uniform & grouted rock slabs on the extreme right hand side NASA chaps!

Latest Mars 'Release'

Here is a current Mars photograph taken by the latest multi-billion dollar probe that has landed on the planet. As you can see it shows the 'usual' nothingness landscape ... sand and rock and sky. It is a featureless landscape ... a rather pointless exercise, seemingly. Yet, here is a conspiracy theory take ... it appears as if they KNOW there is more interesting sites and sounds elsewhere on the planet; let's face it they have all the satellite imagery created for Google Mars ... the TRUE original imagery, not the tampered version Joe Public sees; so basically they KNOW where to land these probes so they don't reveal anything ... or anything too 'revealing'.

It's a little like an intelligent race landing on Planet Earth ... discovering there is life on Earth ... but beaming back images from the Sahara Desert to fool their people's Earth is uninhabited ... I'm almost certain that is what is taking place. Provide the world media with the same old, same old boring landscape photos to keep up the bullshit 'no life on Mars' deception.

YET, if they are being entirely honest, they have plenty of more interesting landscapes to explore ... which would herald more interesting viewings by the probes. But then ... it would reveal too much about the true nature of the planet. And also of the truth about Mars. Take for example the image on the right ... which was obtained via Google Mars. Wonder what colour probe photos would reveal here?

A Word On 'Karma'

Karma is most often understood by people who haven't studied or understood it. Karma is not the only thing that can be behind a negative or positive event. 

Negativity seeks positivity so it can neutralise itself. 

Positive natures draw to them negative responses ... because the world is ruled by negative selfish seperate selves. The greatest beings suffer the most. This often occurs because the Universal Spirit forges its best tools in fire. 

The best way for a person to react, is to see the lesson in the experience, realise what life is communicating to you through the experience and the change. Such a change will insure that the mistake will never be repeated, and thus your future 'nows' will be different' [Extract taken from The Lost Teachings Of Atlantis by Jon Peniel].

Mystic Insight for the Day

"The selfish separate self controls the mind, and twists the truth,
It can avoid god by searching for god,
It can avoid love, by looking for love."

Contractors capture chilling video of "Nude Ghost" during renovation

S.O.T.T: Contractors renovating old prison housing were left terrified when a break time dare turned into a brush with the paranormal, sending one worker running for his life. Luckily, he had a camera in hand. When the duo of contractors picked up a job renovating an old building in Derby with a reputation for ghostly happenings, such as odd cold spots, mysteriously flickering lights, disembodied knocks, bumps, and the like (after all, the previous owner died in the home), it became a routine joke to challenge one another to a kind of "terror endurance" game. The two would dare one another to go into the basement, the source of the odd disturbances, and see how long they could last.

"See how long you can stay down there for," one contractor, Tom, says to the other.

Outside the Comfort Zone

Daily OM: Most of us have had the experience of tackling some dreaded task only to come out the other side feeling invigorated, filled with a new sense of confidence and strength. The funny thing is, most of the time when we do them, we come out on the other side changed and often wondering what we were so worried about or why it took us so long. We may even begin to look for other tasks we’ve been avoiding so that we can feel that same heady mix of excitement and completion. Whether we avoid something because it scares us or bores us, or because we think it will force a change we’re not ready for, putting it off only creates obstacles for us. On the other hand, facing the task at hand, no matter how onerous, creates flow in our lives and allows us to grow. The relief is palpable when we stand on the other side knowing that we did something even though it was hard or we didn't want to do it. On the other hand, when we cling to our comfort zone, never addressing the things we don’t want to face, we cut ourselves off from flow and more>>>...

There Is No Shortcut To The Summit Of The Spiritual Mountain!

We're currently observing a huge uptake in EGO-DRIVEN individuals in the mystical world at this time. Remember the old saying ... 'learning to run before they can walk'? There are currently many who are guilty of this ... coming off the back of training courses and workshops endorsed by well known faces, they are now flying into their own thing TOO SOON! 

Their egos see the finish line and think they have arrived in the promised land. This is YESOD-TALK ... the carrot has been dangled, but the work has not been done. It is merely the start of a very long road ... it is not the destination. Sadly, there are ever so many who should stop and think ... their ego's are not showing them their true path. Their destiny is to be Icarus ... and fly too close to the sun. It is a sad fact but they have failed the very first test put in their path. The first step ... and the higher forces will not attend on their soul growth. For there is no soul growth when the ego is in control. 

The ego may say these souls are working for the right intention when in truth the ego is hiding the fact from them that ... it is driven by greed, jealousy, pride, the need for adoration  or approval. All of us go through this process ... those who have gone before merely shake their heads at the new recruits who think they are now walking the paths lined with gold .... very soon they will find it is anything but what they think. The older faces have learned the hard way ... but have learned the ART OF PATIENCE

The path is not an overnight success recipe ... it may seem to the newbies that it is. They will probably argue until they are blue in the face that they are ready. That they are not doing it too soon ... but from bitter experience the old faces will tell them that a couple of training courses or a endorsed course or two will not make you a household name ... nor will it be a shortcut to the top of the spiritual mountain. It is just the start of a long, long sojourn.

Activating the Power of the Higher Mind

Waking Times: There’s much talk in spiritual circles about ‘setting our intention’; ‘envisioning the things we want’ or ‘manifesting our reality’. How easily such things slip into the psyche and collective vocabulary. What if though, we’re still being led astray by the ego, albeit a more subtle form of ego? What if instead, there is a reality that is shaping according to the natural flow of the universe? What if by aligning with that flow, you could amplify it and bring amazing harmony not just to your life, but the world around? I’m speaking of activating the Power of Higher Mind…You’re already creating your reality ...Here’s the key point:

When we speak of intentioning or envisioning what we want, we’re actually cutting across the natural flow of what is already unfolding and happening. We’re creating an illusionary bubble, which is bound to burst at some point. The fact is, you’re already creating your reality, just as it is. The real key therefore, is to figure out why you created it in the first place?

We’re living in a reality where we’ve been separated from the higher self. This has happened for a variety of reasons but for the now, we can simply attribute it to humanity’s karma. As a result, we’ve been living in a bubble, disconnected from the higher flow of life. It is of course what some people aptly refer to as ‘the matrix’ more>>>...

Hidden toxins in vitamins, supplements and health foods

S.O.T.T:  I'm absolutely shocked at how many people don't investigate what's really in the products they swallow. When something is sold as an herb, vitamin, superfood or supplement, they think it's automatically safe. And while the natural products industry has a truly remarkable safety record - especially in contrast to the massive number of deaths caused by pharmaceuticals - it still suffers from a lot of hidden toxins that are routinely used throughout the industry. I know this because I've been an investigative journalist and activist in the natural health industry for over a decade. Natural News is arguably the most-read natural health news website in the world, reaching millions of readers a month. I've walked the floors of countless trade shows, conducted hundreds of interviews and spent tens of thousands of dollars on laboratory tests to determine what's in these products. On top of that, I'm deep into organic product formulations and certified organic food production, serving as the supervisor of a USDA-certified organic food production and packing more>>>... 

Quote for the Day

"The soul requires duration of time -- rich, thick, deep, velvety time -- and it thrives on rhythm. Soul can’t be hurried or harried ....

Doing for Others

Daily Om: When we feel bad, often our first instinct is to isolate ourselves and focus on what’s upsetting us. Sometimes we really do need some downtime, but many times the best way to get out of the blues quickly is to turn our attention to other people. In being of service to others, paradoxically, we often find answers to our own questions and solutions to our own problems. We also end up feeling more connected to the people around us, as well as empowered by the experience of helping someone. When we reach out to people we can help, we confirm that we are not alone in our own need for support and inspiration, and we also remind ourselves that we are powerful and capable in certain ways. Even as our own problems or moods get the better of us sometimes, there is always someone else who can use our particular gifts and energy to help them out. They, in turn, remind us that we are not the only people in the world with difficulties or issues. We all struggle with the problems of life, and we all feel overwhelmed from time to time, but we can almost always find solace in more>>>...

A Word on 'Spirit Portals'

Silverhoofs: So lets discuss what a portal is. A metaphysical portal is an opening in one dimension to another including but not limited to astral levels. Any entity with Higher abilities then us, at this point in time, can create a portal. That means spirits, Angelics, and even aliens. Portals are often permanent passage points from one plane to another. They can be old (ancient) portals that allow the movement of spirits of all types to new points that some “wanna bes” opened without thinking or knowing how to close them. You have to remember in portal work the closest astral level to Earth plane is a lower level in which dwell entities that “feed off” our energy and when a rip or opening appears they flock to it like drunks to an open bar. So one must always be cautious with portal work and know what your doing and what level you are opening BEFORE you do more>>>...

Testimonials Wanted!

Please note: anyone who has any recent testimonials relating to readings with Matthew James or  workshops/mentoring or even live shows ... we would love  to hear from you ... as we are interested in including people's testimonials in various chapters of the book ...

Feet In Both Worlds - 'How Did It All Start For You?'

I’ve often been asked ‘how did it all start for you? When was the defining moment in your life with regard to your spiritual path?’ It is answer I can give fairly easily, as I can actually recall that moment; though I didn’t realise it at the time! The event in question occurred back in the 1980's when I was very much ‘one of the lads’ ... my interests were firmly on cars, rock bands, real ale etc and certainly not focussed on spiritual development ...!

It was a Tuesday night in Blackpool, Lancashire, UK. I made my first visit to The New Age & Psychic Centre on Princes Parade close by to the Grand Metropole Hotel. I’d been invited along by a mutual friend who’d imparted those immortal words ‘you have psychic ability’ a few days earlier, then had spoken to me about Paula Paradaema who ran the Psychic Centre. Tuesday night was a show night, which meant there was always a demonstration medium on stage. I chose this particular night to venture into a different world to my own. A world which would very soon become my own too! But I did not know that when I first arrived. I had no idea what was going to unfold later that night when I ordered a pint from the club’s bar. I still had no idea when I sat rather nervously at the back of the room, beside Paula’s husband Vinny who was at the door, dealing with the tickets and admissions.

My life changed about 20 minutes into the show. It changed when Paula drew the audience’s attention to me at the back of the room, and gesticulated for me to join her and the guest medium on the stage! I felt like a rabbit caught in headlights. I had no chance to turn and run out of the exit doors ... instead I made my way up onto the stage with shaking legs and dry mouth. I felt totally out of place when all eyes of the audience were on me.

Paula introduced the young Medium on stage as Yvette and explained to me how ‘psychometry’ worked. I was spellbound as she pointed to a tray of people’s jewellery which lay on a table in front of me. Paula explained what I was to do ... ‘choose an item of jewellery, hold it in your hand and then describe what you see or feel’.

Who? Me? I’ve never done this sort of thing before!

The rest of the evening is, as they say, history ... I recall ‘saying something’ which related to three items of jewellery. Having never had any formal training as to the how, or the why, I blew my own socks off that I was able to get anything!

Each owner of the items of jewellery were then asked to stand up and explain if they could understand anything I had said to them. I was slightly bewildered when each person in turn nodded their heads and explain the accuracy of what I had said to them.

I was still in a state of bewilderment when people from the audience were milling around me after the evening, letting me know just how accurate I had been ... members of the development group, who in the coming years would become close friends, introduced themselves to me. It was then Paula dropped her first bombshell. The first of many I hasten to add ... ‘I was told to watch out for Matthew about 12 months ago. I knew you’d come, and I knew you’d be able to do what you just did’ ....

Mystic Insight for the Day

“What is this self inside us, this silent observer,
Severe and speechless critic, who can terrorize us,
And urge us on to futile activity,
And in the end, judge us still more severely,
For the errors into which his own reproaches drove us?”
-- T. S. Eliot

Unlimited Vision

Daily OM: We can only see so much from where we sit in our particular bodies, in the midst of our particular lives, rooted as we are in the continuum of space and time. The divine, on the other hand, is not limited to the constructs of either space or time, and its wisdom and workings often elude us as we try to make sense of what is happening in our lives. This is why things are not always what they seem to be and even the best-laid plans are sometimes overturned. Even when we feel we have been guided by our intuition every step of the way, we may find ourselves facing unexpected loss and disappointment. At times like these, we can find some solace in trusting that no matter how bad or just plain inexplicable things look from our perspective, they are, in fact, in divine order. Even as we take our places in this earthly realm, a part of us remains completely free of the confines we face here. Regardless of what is happening in our lives, this part of us remains infused with joy and gratitude, connected to the unbroken source from which we come. Our small self, on the other hand, who is caught up in our false identity as a being limited in space and time, regards happiness as the result of things going the way it wants them to more>>>...

Psychic Protection - Grounding

Psychic Revelation: Grounding helps you to center and focus and helps to calm you. It harmonizes the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual within you bringing about a natural state of balance.

The following is a suggested method of grounding that we use. It can obviously be adapted if you so desire.

1.Find a time when you won't be disturbed in a quiet place.
2.Sit comfortably and place your hands on your thighs.
3.Focus your awareness on your feet and slowly move that awareness upward until you have covered your whole body. Relax each body part as you focus on it.
4.Now focus on your breathing. Imagine you are surrounded by white light and as you breathe in inhale this light. As you breathe out, exhale all tension or pain that you feel.
5.Continue to inhale the light and exhale the negative until you feel calm and relaxed.

You are now ready to go onto the next stage which is centering. Centering will help you to concentrate on what's important when you begin your personal, psychic, or spiritual work.
1.As you inhale say a word such as "om" or "peace" (or whatever word is meaningful to you).
2.As you exhale, repeat the word again.
3. Repeat this part of the exercise until you feel centered. Usually ten times is enough but it may take a few more than that to start with.

Now that you are grounded and centered it is time to still your mind. Although you will probably be feeling quite calm and ready for anything by now, it is important to make that mental switch between the everyday to a higher state of more>>>...

Cause, Effect, And Transformation

Daily Om: There are times in our lives when it seems our bodies are running on empty. We are not sick, nor are we necessarily pushing ourselves to the limit-rather, the energy we typical enjoy has mysteriously dissipated, leaving only fatigue. Many people grow accustomed to feeling this way because they do not know that it is possible to exist in any other state. The body's natural state, however, is one of energy, clarity, and balance. Cultivating these virtues in our own bodies so that we can combat feelings of depletion is a matter of developing a refined awareness of the self and then making changes based on our observations. A few scant moments of focused self-examination in which you assess your recent schedule, diet, and general health may help you zero in on the factors causing your depletion. If you are struggling to cope with an overfull agenda, prioritization can provide you with more time to sleep and otherwise refresh yourself. Switching to a diet containing plenty of nutritious foods may serve to restore your vigor, especially when augmented by supplements like B vitamins or ginseng. Consider, too, that a visit to a healer or homeopath will likely provide you with wonderful insights into your tiredness. But identifying the source of your exhaustion will occasionally be more complicated than spotting a void in your lifestyle and filling it with some form of literal nourishment. Since your earthly and ethereal forms are so intimately entwined, matters of the mind and heart can take their toll on your physical self. Intense emotions such as anger, sadness, jealousy, and regret need fuel to manifest in your consciousness, and this fuel is more often than not corporeal energy. Conversely, a lack of mental and emotional stimulation may leave you feeling listless and more>>>...

A Word on 'Bi-Location'

"It was an inspirational insight which gave me the sense of having my ‘feet in both worlds’ ... the realisation I hold a simultaneous conversation with my client, here on the earth plane, and also with the communicators from the other world.

It made perfect sense; gave me great clarity, and explained the reason why I have been ‘guide-less’ since I began this spiritual sojourn all those decades ago.

I know I go to them ... they don’t come to me ... I wander their world whilst I sit (Or stand) before a client or an audience. I almost always see a shadowy overlay to my vision of the earth plane when I gaze out through human eyes. Sometimes the overlay is almost a perfect carbon copy of the room I’m sitting in at the time. But, in other instances, the overlay is somewhere entirely different - more often than not it is the locality where the communicator is at the moment I am holding the consultation.

It was a rather odd sensation to experience at first ... I was unsure, and a little dubious, as to what was taking place ... but now many years later, I understand perfectly the process. I term it ‘BI-LOCATION’. Being in two localities at the same time. My physical body is stuck firmly here on Planet Earth ... whilst my light body has journeyed to the ‘back of spiritual beyond’ to make contact with an occupant of that world. I am consciously aware of being in these two dimensions at the same time.

It makes the need for guides obsolete, as it is myself who is receiving the information directly."

The Road to New Beginnings

Copyright Matthew James 2012
Daily Om: Life is a collage of beginnings and endings that run together like still-wet paint. Yet before we can begin any new phase in life, we must sometimes first achieve closure to the current stage we are in. That’s because many of life’s experiences call for closure. Often, we cannot see the significance of an event or importance of a lesson until we have reached closure. Or, we may have completed a certain phase in life or path of learning and want to honor that ending. It is this sense of completion that frees us to open the door to new beginnings. Closure serves to tie up or sever loose ends, quiets the mind even when questions have been left unanswered, signifies the end of an experience, and acknowledges that a change has taken place. The period of completion, rather than being just an act of finality, is also one of transition. When we seek closure, what we really want is an understanding of what has happened and an opportunity to derive what lessons we can from an experience. Without closure, there is no resolution and we are left to grieve, relive old memories to the point of frustration, or remain forever connected to people from our past. A sense of completion regarding a situation may also result when we accept that we have done our best. If you can’t officially achieve closure with someone, you can create completion by participating in a closure ritual. Write a farewell letter to that person and then burn your note during a ceremony. This ritual allows you to consciously honour and appreciate what has taken place between you and release the experience so you can move more>>>...

Hard Sell In The Psychic Industry Part 6 - "Hidden Agendas"

The hard sellers basically have no ethics whatsoever ... always the opportunist, they are almost always planning to take advantage from any situation. They most certainly have hidden agendas with anything and everything they are involved in.

Behind professional smiles and 'designer imagery' they are prepared to even double cross established friends if it means they can climb on to the back of their friends to make a living.

A prefect example of this tactic occurred recently. As it was related to us it went a little like this:

A personal friend was invited to organise and run a specialty evening at their development circle, because they were unable to attend the evening ... and wished their friend to undertake an evening for their development group in their absence.

Their personal friend invited clientele of her own ... who she invited to her specialty evening. Our hard sellers arrived unexpectedly towards the latter part of the development evening ... and then proceeded to hand out business cards to their personal friend's clientele who'd come to attend their personal friend's evening.

Their clear intention all along was to utilise a double cross and a 'hidden agenda' by inviting their personal friend to organise a special evening ... so exposing a new client base to them ... so they could hand out business cards with this definite intention of taking these clients from their personal friend.

Be warned ... almost every meeting organised and run by these two hard sellers has the same hidden agenda ... the cue sheet being almost always the same ... get someone else to run the evening for them. Get this someone to bring their own clientele and participants. Wait until the end of the evening to then peddle wares to a potential new client base ... a shocking and unethical reality that takes place sadly ...

4 Things You Should Know About Your 'Third Eye'

Alter Net: Located in nearly the direct center of the brain, the tiny pinecone-shaped pineal gland, which habitually secretes the wondrous neurohormone melatonin while we sleep at night, was once thought to be a vestigial leftover from a lower evolutionary state. Indeed, according to recent research, we could be increasing our chances of contracting chronic illnesses like cancer by unnecessarily bathing its evenings in artificial light, working night shifts or staying up too late. By disrupting the pineal gland and melatonin's chronobiological connection to Earth's rotational 24-hour light and dark cycle, known as its circadian rhythm, we're possibly opening the doors not to perception, but to disease and disorder. A recently published study from Vanderbilt University has found associations between circadian disruption and heart disease, diabetes and more>>>...

Infinite Self – Reclaiming Your Inner Power

Zen Haven: The ego likes little boxes it is familiar with. But when considering an infinite consciousness, the first thing you have to do is burn the boxes. Lao-Tzu talks about it in the first few lines of the Tao Te Ching – when talking about the Infinite Self, the Christ consciousness, the God Force, the Tao, the Buddhahood, whatever you care to call it – is that it runs through all things, its everywhere, so it has no definitions. Only the ego needs to define, discriminate, quantify, and measure things in order to create an edge or framework to life so it can feel secure and comfortable with what little it knows and comprehends. But the eternity of the grace of God flows through the life force of plants, trees, animals, humans, and all things. It doesn’t have a boundary or definition. You can define the position of a tree because there is a definite space around the tree where it is not. Here’s the tree, and there’s the space around it where it is not. But the God Force is omnipresent, meaning it’s everywhere, it can’t be defined. It is the “nameless” from which everything flows. If the God Force is omnipresent, it must also be God, because God is everywhere. The God Force and God must be one and the more>>>...

Last year, the Sandusky County Convention and Visitors Bureau began hosting a series of monthly tours designed to take guests underground into a basement jail known as "the dungeon." Visitors began to question whether the dungeon - which was constructed in 1840 - was haunted, and it was up to Brown to find out. So Brown and SCCVB Travel Event Specialist Katherine Rice asked two paranormal investigation groups to perform independent investigations of the dungeon, and the results, at least for Brown, were chilling. "I'm not real susceptible to this stuff, and I'm a skeptic," Brown said. "But now, I'm a lot less skeptical." Big Dawg Paranormal Investigations went into the dungeon twice - once in January and again in February. During their February follow-up investigation, the group captured video of what investigators described at first as dust particles. The particles floated aimlessly around the dungeon at first, but one particle in the video hovers over Brown's head, evoking a physical reaction to something he couldn't see at the time. "At that point in time, when that thing hovers over my head, I had an absolutely bone-chilling cold run down to my very core," he said. Ohio Researchers of Banded Spirits member Chris Page said the round orb in the video is clear evidence of paranormal activity. "The cameras today are very sensitive to the environment and they actually highlight dust particles," Page said. "Ninety percent is dirt, dust, lint - stuff that falls off your clothes. The other 10 percent is where it comes into the more>>>...

Hard Sell In The Psychic Industry Part 5 - "Plagiarism - Copycatting Original Material "

This hard sell is a simple one ... its the unethical way of obtaining original writings and teachings and then claiming it to be your own ...! It is a classic hard sell tactic that gives a completely false impression to all and sundry that you are something you are not. It is part and parcel of the hard sell tactic of the unethical 'psychic mediums' we are endeavouring to expose in these articles.

You will find workshop notes, affirmations, quotes and teachings given to you quite clearly by these charlatans, that will have their name attached to it ... giving you the false impression they have devised the writings. This is to give you the false impression that the 'psychic medium' is more knowledgeable than they really are. Be wary ... 90% of the time they have stolen these workings from someone else ...

It is a hard sell ploy to create the false impression of a knowledgeable and wise persona ... a persona that will teach you, nurture you, and empower you ... when in truth the paperwork is little more than a 'false invitation to treat' in the shop window of a charlatan.

Be careful people. These charlatans are operating on a web site or Facebook page you will be visiting someday soon ....

Energy-saving lights are too dangerous for binmen

Daily Mail: Councils across the UK are refusing to pick up low-energy lightbulbs from homes as they contain toxic mercury, which gives off poisonous vapours. But confused consumers are putting the new bulbs – classed as hazardous waste – in their dustbins when they burn out, potentially putting the safety of thousands of binmen at risk. Previously, the public disposed of traditional lightbulbs, used in Britain for 120 years, in a domestic bin. However, they are being phased out under a European Union ruling and are being replaced with energy-saving bulbs, many of which contain more>>>..

Junk Food is Engineered to Addict You to Chemical Ingredients

Natural News: Regular readers of Natural News, as well as scores of others in the U.S. and around the world, have long since known of the health dangers of junk food - foods that can most generally be described as those which contain empty calories and excessive amounts of substances known to cause harm to the body. But why does junk food remain so popular? What makes tens of millions of people consume it daily, even if they are well aware of its health and dietary pitfalls? Well, part of the reason is by design - that is, the way such foods were designed to appeal to our senses. Think of the old Lay's potato chip commercials; "No one can eat just one." In many respects, that's what junk food does: It is designed to create a sort of can't resist mindset, which is a) why junk food makers have thrived, even in a culture of health; and b) why so many Americans (and increasingly, citizens of other countries) are seeing epidemics of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other medical more>>>..

51 Symptoms of Spiritual Awakening – How Many Do You Have?

Add caption
Waking Times: 1. Changing sleep patterns: restlessness, hot feet, waking up two or three times a night.
Feeling tired after you wake up and sleepy off and on during the day. There is something called the Triad Sleep Pattern that occurs for many: you sleep for about 2-3 hours, wake up, go back to sleep for another couple of hours, wake again, and go back to sleep again. For others, the sleep requirements have changed. You can get by on less sleep. Lately Ihave been experiencing huge waves of energy running into my body from the crown. It feels good, but it keeps me awake for a long time, then subsides.

Advice: Get used to it. Make peace with it and don’t worry about getting enough sleep (which often causes more insomnia). You will be able to make it through the day if you hold thoughts of getting just what you need. You can also request your Higher Self to give you a break now and then and give you a good, deep night’s sleep. If you can’t go back to sleep right away, use the waking moments to meditate, read poetry, write in your journal or look at the moon. Your body will adjust to the new more>>>...

Coping with People You Dislike

Daily OM: As much as most of us wish we could exist in harmony with the people we encounter throughout our lives, there will always be individuals we dislike. Some simply rub us the wrong way while others strike us as deliberately unaware. We may judge others as too mean or abrasive for us to interact with them comfortably. Yet no person should be deemed a villain because their beliefs, opinions, mannerisms, and mode of being are not compatible with your own. You need not embrace the rough traits they have chosen to embody. There may be times in which the best course of action involves distancing yourself from someone you dislike. But circumstances may require that you spend time in the company of individuals who awaken your aversion. In such cases, you can ease your discomfort by showing your foe loving compassion while examining your feelings carefully. The reasons we dislike some individuals are often complex and, at first, indecipherable. Often, we are automatically averse to people who are different because they compel us to question our values, spirituality, culture, and ideologies, threatening to undermine our self-assurance. Realistically, however, those you dislike have no power to weaken your life’s foundations. In fact, your aversion to specific individuals may actually be your response to your fear that specific qualities you see in them also exist within you. Their presence may force you to face internal issues you would rather not confront. If you meet someone who inspired an intense, largely negative response in you, ask yourself why your reaction is so laden with powerful emotions. Remember that you control your feelings and, if necessary, you can minimize this individual’s impact on your well-being by choosing how you will respond to more>>>...

Light Of Truth Oracle by Matthew James  

The Four Worlds of Qabalah

Web Of Qabalah: In Qabalah it is taught that there are four worlds or realms / levels of existence. As with the Tree of Life the four worlds emmanate from one antother in a series, from the highest and most divine to the lowest material level. The four worlds describe different regions of the Tree of Life, with a number of spheres, or sephira, being attributed to each world. In addition to this it is said that each of the four worlds contain a full Tree within it, and this is depicted in a diagram called 'Jacobs Ladder' in which four connected trees are shown, and the bottom sphere of one tree isa the highest sphere of the next tree down and so on. In Qabalah all things are interconnected and any abstraction from this inherent unity is recognsied to have limitations.The Four Worlds are more>>>...

When Doors Open

Daily OM: When a door opens, walk through it. Trust that the door has opened for a reason and you have been guided to it. Sometimes we have a tendency to overanalyze or agonize over the decision, but it is quicker to simply go through the door and discover what's there as that's the only way to know. Even if it doesn't seem right at first, opening this door may lead to another door that will take us where we need to go. Doors open when the time is right for us to enter a new space, metaphorically speaking, and we can have faith that walking through is the right thing to do. Sometimes we linger in the threshold because we are afraid of leaving our old life for a life we know nothing about. We may have voices inside of our heads that try to hold us back or people in our lives saying discouraging things. These voices, internal and external, are known as threshold spirits, and they express all the fears and doubts that arise at the beginning of a new life. Nevertheless, none of these voices can hold us back, and they will fall silent as soon as we cross the more>>>...

Sleep consolidates memories for competing tasks

S.O.T.T: Sleep plays an important role in the brain's ability to consolidate learning when two new potentially competing tasks are learned in the same day, research at the University of Chicago demonstrates. Other studies have shown that sleep consolidates learning for a new task. The new study, which measured starlings' ability to recognize new songs, shows that learning a second task can undermine the performance of a previously learned task. But this study is the first to show that a good night's sleep helps the brain retain both new memories. Starlings provide an excellent model for studying memory because of fundamental biological similarities between avian and mammalian brains, scholars wrote in the paper, "Sleep Consolidation of Interfering Auditory Memories in Starlings," published in the current online edition of Psychological more>>>...

More on Photographic Analysis

Extract taken from 'How to ... Psychometry & Photographic Analysis Mini-Workshops' facilitated by Matthew James - COPYRIGHT MATTHEW JAMES FEB 2013

Photographic analysis relies on a combination of the following skills:

Observation—a close scrutiny of the person or persons in the photograph. Noting their apparent mood and situation. In this example the person appears to be smiling. But what do you sense behind their eyes?

The Observant Mind—being aware of your own emotions/discomforts/state of mind prior to looking at the photograph and then comparing these observations with what you are feeling/thinking whilst observing the photograph. What is causing the difference? Are there any unexplainable strong feelings/thoughts/aches or pains that you weren’t feeling before? These sensations are likely to be linked to the person in the photograph.

Becoming The Person—this is a vital skill associated with photographic analysis. It is empathetic and sympathetic magic in action. By imagining yourself as the person in the photograph it is very likely you will capture exactly the essence of the moment the person was in during the photograph.

Using ‘the psychic senses’—quite often it is possible to receive valuable insights into the person or the situation by making yourself aware of your psychic senses … with clairvoyance you might begin to see relevant information; with clairalience you might capture a particular smell that could be relevant to the person; with clairgustance you might capture a particular taste that is of relevance to the person; with clairsentinence or clairsentience you might begin to feel how the person was feeling at the time of the reading or in the current day.

Photographic Analysis—The Nuts & The Bolts

Extract taken from 'How to ... Psychometry & Photographic Analysis Mini-Workshops' facilitated by Matthew James - COPYRIGHT MATTHEW JAMES FEB 2013

So how does it work? How are we able to obtain accurate information about a person from their photograph? Remember how the story goes??? Many indigenous peoples around the world refuse to have their photographs taken because they believe part of their soul/lifeforce is left behind in the picture?

That is partially true. There is an imprint or impression of our life force integral to the image. Plus … photographs act as a doorway or portal to the past!!! Yes … you are looking back into the past, to the time when the photograph was taken. It sounds profound but it is true!

Energy is electromagnetic by nature. Our hearts are an electromagnetic generator and because of this our bodies generate an energy … which we can subconsciously receive from each other. Therefore we are constantly receiving information from each other … in person and from photographs. With practice it is easy to understand the person in a picture.

A Separate Reality

Daily Om: We all experience periods where we feel separated from the loving ebb and flow of the universe. These times of feeling disconnected from the source may occur for many reasons, but self-sabotage is the most common cause for us choosing to cut ourselves off from the flow of the universe. We purposefully, though often unconsciously, cut ourselves off from this flow and from the embrace of humanity so we can avoid dealing with painful issues, shun the necessary steps for growth, or prevent the success that we are afraid of achieving from ever happening. When you choose to disconnect from the source, you block the flow of the universe’s energy from passing through you. You become like a sleepwalker who is not fully awake to life, and your hopes, plans, and dreams begin to appear as distant blurs on a faraway horizon. Universal support has never left you, but if you can remember that you became disconnected from source by choice, you can choose to reconnect. Reconnecting with the universe grounds you and is as easy as you making a concerted effort to become interested in the activities you love or responding to what nurtures or stimulates you. You may also want to make a list of the activities and kinds of experiences that touch your soul. Try to pinpoint the times when you have felt fully engaged and aware and ask yourself what you were doing. But one of the easiest ways to reconnect is simply by stating the intention of doing more>>>...

Hard Sell In The Psychic Industry Part 4 - "Hijacking Your Social Presence and Then Undermining Your Reputation"

Since day one, early in the 1980's, when I began my journey into the spiritual world, I have always had strong morals and ethics. I have never intentionally poached from, or ridden on the back of, other established psychics. I have always taken a great pride in getting to where I am by my own hard work and efforts. It is a strong ethical code I adhere to today.

Sadly, the same cannot be said of others in our industry. It is clearly evident there are some who will stop at nothing to get by in this industry. They are prepared to beg, borrow and steal. They will say anything and everything to distract the general public and get them to go to them, and not you. This includes hijacking social media sites such as Facebook ... joining up with your personal friends and clients ... and then undermining your connections with their personal defamations about you. Carefully choosing the words they say so 'some mud sticks' and people are deflected away from you. The idea is to undermine your popularity and your reputation ... so you no longer shine brighter than they do.

It also extends to them undermining and hijacking social events and workshops you have planned in other areas of your country. Spreading their defamations far and wide to affect your trade.

I speak from bitter experience. A host of statements from friends and clients alike who've been subjected to this sit close by to where I write.

It is a sad fact of life in this industry. To some it is not seen as unethical ... 'all psychics do it so get over it' ... well this psychic does NOT do this and is appalled that others in the industry are not prepared to work hard and gain positive recognition on their own merits. Instead they have to adopt underhand and unethical tactics in attempt to discredit the genuine ones amongst the industry. The general public needs to be woken up and be shown the true faces of these 'lightworkers' ....

Working with Space

Daily Om: When we decide the time has come to change the look or feel of our personal spaces, it is the spaces themselves that can provide us with the most useful guidance. Working with a single room, an apartment, or an entire house allows us to unearth the innate potential of these spaces and also better understand how we want to relate to them. To be conscious of the possibilities of a space, we need to listen to, look at, and bond with that space in a deep and personal way. Just as no two people are alike, no two rooms, however similar, are identical. The more we know about the spaces we wish to change, the better equipped we are to make them both beautiful and functional. Before you contemplate colors and layouts, spend some time in the rooms you plan to modify. Observe the way light moves through each space at different times of day. In the course of a week or so, note those times when you feel drawn to a particular space. You may naturally gravitate toward one room when you want to relax and toward another when you want to socialize. Also, remember that not all rooms have to be used as originally planed, for example a dining room may make a wonderful sitting area. As you make these observations, think about whether the spaces under consideration remind you of anything or bring certain thoughts to mind. Writing your thoughts down can make the process of examination more>>>...

Illuminati Mind Control & the Report from Iron Mountain

Veterans Today: The Rothschild-led international banking cartel learned long ago that it was much easier to brainwash people than to face off with them in open combat. Over the past decades these techniques, led by television “programming” have become quite sophisticated. The US tested numerous top-secret high-tech weapons systems in the Gulf War theatre, while utilizing some old low-frequency favorites. When Iraqi ground forces surrendered, many of them were in a state of delirium and lethargy that could have been induced by extremely low-frequency radio waves, which the US used as a weapon as early as the Vietnam more>>>...

So You Don’t Believe in Chemtrails?

Hanging Gates Of Babylon: That’s fine. Neither do most people….who don’t have to live under them. But chemtrails are not just something you believe in, like some believe that there will be 75 nubile virgins waiting for them in Heaven if they just kill a few infidels. There’s no documentary evidence for that. But there is documentary evidence for the existence of chemtrails which is overwhelming and inescapably conclusive, and so here’s just a taster for some of it.

The chemtrail programme that we see today began in earnest in the 90s. However the technology has existed for a lot longer and there are other incidences of its use before the 90s. One notable example was in Britain from the late 50s through to the 70s, when large parts of the country were sprayed with chemicals for germ warfare experiments. This information was locked away in Government archives and has only recently been released to the public as 50 years have now passed. Many people have had children with birth defects because of this government sponsored aerosol spraying campaign.

In the 1990s, people began to notice that the contrails normally emitted by aircraft were lingering in the sky, forming cloud cover and blocking out the sun. Some of these people could see that they were being sprayed with some substance, so in order to understand what it was, they had their rainwater and soil independently tested. The tests consistently found exceedingly high levels of aluminium, barium and strontium in areas affected by more>>>...

High Fructose Corn Syrup: Bad for the brain?

S.O.T.T: High fructose corn syrup (HFCS), the sweetener that's ubiquitous in sodas, processed snacks, and junk foods, may tinker with the brain in ways that, unlike glucose, may actually encourage us to overeat. The problem is that after downing a soft drink containing fructose, the brain may not register that we're full, according to a study published in the January 2, 2013 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. For the investigation, scientists used MRI scans to visualize and compare blood flow in the brain after their subjects - 20 young, normal-weight men and women - drank beverages containing HFCS and, a few weeks later, one containing glucose. Scans showed that drinking the glucose-sweetened beverages turns off brain areas that stimulate the desire for food, but this didn't happen when the drinks contained HFCS. The study was small and didn't prove that HFCS contributes to obesity, although increases in obesity have paralleled the use of HFCS. More studies will be necessary to confirm the negative effects HFCS has on the more>>>...

5 Ways to Rid Your Biggest Fears

Collective Evolution: Think back to last time you really wanted to do something but didn’t? What stopped you from doing it? Did something change your mind? Was there a voice inside your head? Whatever the reason might have been, let’s take the time to stop and question what might be going on with our fears and how we can get beyond these fears so we can start pursuing things we’ve always wanted. Fear is an interesting little thing as it can act in ways where we don’t even know it is present. For example, we might want to do something that first requires a few things to come into place. The scenario might be getting a new job. Next thing we know we start saying to ourselves; “Well where would I work? How would I get there? How do I quit my current job? What if I can’t get another job?” These are only a few of many stories that we may begin looking into when we have that initial thought of changing our job situation. Although we sometimes call this; facing the reality of the situation and doing what’s realistic, truth is, this sequence of thoughts and rationalizations all stems from fear.

Here are some key of points to help you overcome your more>>>...

The Grand Masquerade

Before Its News: Almost from birth the stress and pressures of incarnating into human form begin taking their toll on our personality. Long before we even have a clue as to who we are, we sense that our very sensibilities are under assault from many divergent sources. Our parents, teachers and friends all have a set of parameters which they expect us to form ourselves into. Even as we attempt to reconcile our undiscovered selves with those parameters set down for us, we begin creating and using masks to gain acceptance and avoid corrective buy us the time we need to figure things out. In the process, we of course begin to realize that parents, teachers and friends are also pretty good at using masks in their dealings with one another. We notice how differently they seem than when dealing with us. Next thing you know, nobody knows who anyone else in the family really more>>>...
