Have you ever thought about whether the universe we live in is unique? There have been plenty of books and movies that tell stories of other worlds and universes beyond our own. However, science is also telling us that such an alternate universe and even multiple universe ideas are possible.
One of the most exciting concepts is what’s called a “parallel universe.” It is an area of this theory of multiverse. To understand the idea of parallel universes better, let’s try to understand the different multiverse theories.
The big question that this multiverse theory asks is if we’re the only universe in the whole expanse of time and space. With the technology that we have at present, we can only observe some parts of our own universe. It’s similar to being inside a fishbowl because our universe is curved. We cannot see what’s outside of it if indeed there is something beyond our...
It may be easy to think that morning meditation is only done by spiritual people. But parents can actually benefit from meditating. With so many things going on in our lives as parents, we end up feeling stressed and worn-out. How many times have we found ourselves at the point of breaking down? Being a parent is very challenging, that’s why it’s important to find a way to take care of our mental and emotional well-being.
Meditation and other mindfulness activities can help to clear your mind and focus on the present. If you’re always worried and anxious, you can try meditating for a few minutes each day. You’ll start to notice that you are able to think more clearly and that you have this sense of calm within you. It’s because meditation can teach you to be mindful of what you’re feeling and thinking of. There are many benefits to mediation, especially for parents.
But first, what is meditation, and how do you do it?
Some may use the ideas of contemplation and meditation interchangeably, but you can perceive there to be a difference between the two. Before we delve deeper into that, we perceive that both contemplation and meditation are distinct ways of communicating with your higher self, with God, with universal awareness, or some other higher consciousness.
Both meditation and contemplation are expressions of prayer in the many ancient and modern traditions, and it’s easy to mistake one for the other. However, when you take a close look at these two, then you’ll see that they can practically be perceived to be quite different.
Meditation is known to be a prayerful quest wherein you engage desire, emotion, imagination, and thought. A popular goal of meditation is to be able to consider and confront our life’s reality. During meditation, your mind is seeking to understand the why’s and how’s of your life. This is so that...
Have you ever had that moment when you find yourself doing or thinking about the exact same thing as another person at the same time? Most people would credit such coincidence to something that happened by chance, and yet the psychotherapist Carl Jung thought it was synchronicities. He described it as the simultaneous occurrence of events, which does not have a clear cause but is considered deeply meaningful.
Coincidences are often described as random moments. And yet, when people look closer into their lives, there is more to these chance encounters than anything. Every sound that a person hears, every word that a person says, and every individual people meet is not mere coincidence. People come in our lives because there is something about them that we need.
Whether it is to answer our inner doubts or deal with our inner fears, people are in our lives for a reason. It is really pretty simple -- people come in our lives for a purpose.

Shifting into becoming truly present with family and friends happens when someone either comprehends the magnitude of the importance of this relative to their life from a macro view and/or experiences sustained joy and pleasure in their life from applying presence to their relationships with their loved ones.
The problem is that work-life can be the overwhelming perspective one takes. The achievement of things - the outputs of the processes - can be the focus, and when this is so strongly brought into your awareness, simply being simple becomes more foreign. The solution is to tie these things together - work-life and life-life - and see them not as separate activities but as the same activity in different contexts.
Home-life supports work-life. Work-life supports home-life. They are interrelated to each other. However, the home-life must be solid for the work-life to be solid. The home-life is not dependent on the work-life to be solid in the same way. The key is to see the...

Remember that your energy is mental, emotional, spiritual and physical, not just physical. All are interconnected. Having authentic excitement for the...

We tend to keep on playing negative thoughts repeatedly, but why is this so? It's because it's familiar to us, and we can't help but replay the thought in our minds. Somehow, we torture ourselves with a scene from our past that we cannot change.
Negative thoughts don't even have to be memories of things that happened. They can be what we perceive ourselves to be. Low...
