Scientists and psychologists have been researching for years to find the key to happiness. I believe that the answers have been in front of us for a long time. In fact, when we look at practices such as Buddhism and Zen, we find that practitioners have been living in bliss for generations. So why is it so difficult in the West to attain joy in living? What the West lacks in spiritual practice is being met with psychology. However, if we compare what is being explored in psychology to Zen's approach, we will find something interesting. What would seem like a reprogramming of the mind in one society is a way of life for another. In this article, I will compare a scientific approach to happiness with a spiritual way of life that has been around for generations.
Positive psychology is the scientific study of what makes life worth living. In an article written by Courtney E. Ackerman on positivepsychology.org, we learn what...
How much do you know about candle meditation? While many people know about meditation in general, very few truly understand what it means to use candles as the meditation practice's primary focus.
Some people who have tried candlelight mediation say that this particular type of meditation is easy. They say that it helps them let go of their negative thoughts and free themselves of all their worries because they can concentrate on a physical object instead of just a mantra.
Others say that meditation candles are quite a challenge. It can sometimes be tricky to just focus your eyes on the candle's flames without blinking. Experts say that with a little practice and a lot of will to do it, you can find it hugely comforting to practice candle meditation.
It does not matter what type of meditation you engage in. Meditation is in itself a fantastic way to help improve your concentration skills, find your focus, and put more trust in what you can do. If practiced...

Climate change has been the hottest topic of the past few decades. Despite hearing of all the horrible ways we are causing this global phenomenon, the effort to correct our environmental mistakes is still disproportionate to the time we have before the consequences aggravate even more. As the years go by, we keep observing unexpected fires, extinctions, floods, etc. Still, if you are reading this text, you are likely already very familiar with all of these events that seem to come directly from the Bible's Revelations. Watching all of that happen can be heartbreaking, and with the gravity of all these occurrences, we can often feel small and powerless. Although these feelings are valid and help us empathize with our unconditionally loving Mother Earth, they are no more than helpful illusions. This heartache is simply a tool used to motivate us to make a change. In truth, we bear so much power that it is often hard for us to comprehend it. When we accept the...

Every life situation is different. The experience is not the same for everyone, either. Sometimes, people can deal with stressful situations calmly. But, there are times one feels lost and helpless.
While everyone may have their way of coping, meditation lends itself useful to everyone. It's not just about achieving mental and emotional release. It is also about finding the right focus and balance to get things done.
Perhaps you started yoga a month back to help you with your weight loss journey. You started the practice not for its meditative aspect, but for its ability to help you achieve your desired weight.
But in the process of continued practice, you felt a bit of mind shift. It was like all your stress lifted. You have become kinder to people for no particular reason. You felt all that change happen since you started doing yoga.
The things that used to trigger your anger no longer do. It is like you...

Last time we looked at the physics behind the Hermetic principle of vibration. For those interested, that article is here.
Today we are looking at how that principle explains the mechanism behind “magical” or “paranormal” effects. For those interested, this can be explored in more detail in the sixth chapter of The Quantum Hermetica on Amazon, located here.
Previously, we discovered that the vibrations being described by Hermeticism are actually referring to the probability waves of quantum mechanics. Additionally, these waves are found to be behind spacetime itself and not just matter. Literally, everything in physical reality is produced by these waves. Mathematically this has interesting consequences.
Irregular waveforms produced by Fourier series of sine waves, such as the quantum probability waves that generate physical reality.
According to the Schrodinger equation, quantum probability waves are...
How confident are you in doing tarot card reading? If you’re like me, you have obviously read books about these cards to learn more about what they mean. You have also done your research and tried to uncover more interesting facts about each card and tarot card reading tradition.
But does all this knowledge make you a tarot trusted card reader? You are not alone with this feeling of doubting yourself. Everyone who is just starting out their journey of tarot reading knows how you feel.
One crucial aspect of tarot card reading is the confidence that you can get it right. However, if you lack confidence, in the beginning, that does not mean you will always be like that. Perhaps you haven’t been practicing every day, and that’s why you still feel like there’s a gap between you and your tarot cards.
Maybe you don’t have years of experience with the card, yet that’s why you think that you don’t...
How much do you know about your vibrational frequency? Raising the awareness of your vibration and all those around you will only help you understand yourself even more. This means that you will have the power in you to produce your positivity, love, and light.
What do you know about spiritual vibrations? Even though your knowledge and understanding are still quite limited, you most certainly have felt them. "Vibration" in this context is defined as a state of being that is affected by the energy qualities of a person in thought and action.
Although people use the term "vibes" loosely, it is dependent on one's intuition. It's like the strange feeling you have when someone you don't know walks into the room. You instantly feel their energy, and you can tell if it is light or heavy.
It is also the same feeling you get when you meet new people, and you are quickly drawn to them. There are others that you meet that make you want to keep your distance. Every...
