Have you ever heard the phrase spiritual ascension? While it may be self-explanatory, spiritual ascension refers to a person’s journey towards a higher realm of the spirit. What is ascension? It is achieved when a person can submit himself to training to be wise.
What does it mean to be wise? It means that you can see beyond what the world gives. Your understanding of life goes beyond what everyone else comprehends. Through different ways, a person can be trained to take on a spiritual journey. Human ascension is the beginning of a person’s journey to a fuller life.
While it may sound simple, the journey to spiritual ascension is not for everyone. The level of wisdom required of a person varies, and the meaning is different from one person to another. What does it mean when people talk about wisdom?
Is it not the ability to choose between right and wrong? Is it not deciding to determine what is suitable...
Have you ever felt the need to clear your head? Or was there ever a time you felt the need to get rid of all the clutter in your mind?
For many, clearing the head is just impossible. In fact, the very thought of sitting themselves quietly in one corner with an empty mind is just impossible. Oftentimes, the pressure to empty the mind from worries is the very barrier for some who attempt to meditate. It has become impossible for some to try mindfulness exercises because they feel that they could not even pass the first step—the need to free the mind.
It is quite challenging to teach yourself how to empty your mind when you know that you just can't. With so many things on your plate, you can't even begin to think about letting go of them and telling yourself not to worry.
While the goal of meditation is to free you from worries so you can focus your energies on the most important...
Breathing is one of the most natural processes of the human body. It is the first thing a person does once he is born, and the last one before he dies. Yet, little do people know that breathing can be enhanced to help the body cope with stress.
Breathe in and breathe out. Do you think you breathe healthily? While breathing is something that you do everyday, it is one of the most neglected aspects of everyday living. It can be done without a thought. When a person experiences a hard time breathing, they realize how important it truly is.
When was the last time you took a deep breath, and it made you feel good? You probably don't do it as frequently as you should. Perhaps if you knew of the pranayama benefits of proper breathing practices, you would appreciate taking deep breaths more often.
Did you know that breathing is one of the easiest and most convenient ways of fighting anxiety? If you are looking for...
Change is the only thing constant in this world. So is the stress that comes with it. Overcoming the fear that comes with change can be quite a challenge, especially when you don’t know what you are aiming for exactly.
Whether it is your work or your personal life, there is nothing that remains the same for long. No matter how small or big the change may be, it can come with confusing or scary effects on your life.
Sadly, when this happens, people get stuck because they don’t know how to handle stress. They freeze up because of their anxiety, not knowing what to do next or how to move on.
Stop and think about it. Have you ever thought of how many life changes you’ve gone through? There is what they call the quarter-life crisis. Perhaps you’ve already had this one. After that, you will have to deal with a mid-life crisis. And then you have to go through various changes in between including teenage angst, cold feet before getting married,...
Yoga has long been associated with the practice of meditation to find focus. While many people engage in yoga to find their inner peace, yoga offers a lot more.
Did you know that the regular practice of yoga also helps you lose weight? While it may require more challenging poses, the art form itself helps a lot of people achieve their desired weight. Regular practice and dedication can turn every yoga pose into something that helps with your weight problem.
And yet, many people also speak of how yoga has helped them deal with lower back spasms. Many people have googled "burning pain in back." Could yoga be your answer?
Yoga offers several benefits to the body, some of which can be surprising. Yoga does not take hours to do unless you want to spend more time doing it. Just a few minutes of practice each day can bring you to a certain level of awareness about your body's needs.
Yoga helps release the...
Consistent self-care practices are essential in maintaining the physical and mental well-being of a person. From keeping feelings of burnout at bay to dealing with the symptoms of depression and anxiety, it is a must for a person to find the best way to help them deal with the challenges of everyday life.
When was the last time you stopped and took a few minutes to meditate? Taking time to help yourself be more aware of the needs of your body physically, mentally, and emotionally, gives you all the tools you need to maintain good health.
Increasing your self-awareness is the key to knowing what it is that your body needs. While there may be a variety of practices for Chinese meditation, you need to choose which method suits you best.
How do you know which form of self-care will best help you? With the demands of your busy schedule, your ever-changing needs, and your limited budget, how do you know...
Change is the only thing that is constant in this world. If you don’t allow yourself to change, you will be stuck where you are, not growing or improving.
But then, not all the changes that we go through are the kind that we really want. Sometimes, you need to go through a change that you are just not prepared for. What do you do then?
Change is hard. Whoever said that change is easy has never gone through a real change. It is never easy. Whenever it feels like it is easy, then it’s not a genuine change.
For example, when you need to move to a new house, something smaller than where you used to live. Downsizing could mean a lot of things, but it mainly means you need to let go of the many things that you own, but cannot fit in your new home.
Moving in itself can be stressful, but downsizing puts the icing on the cake. It only makes moving even more taxing.
Change is not easy. No matter what...
The human hand has always been expressive. With a simple wave, you could be sending a "Hi" to another person's way. With a simple pat on the back, you could tell someone, "Everything is going to be okay."
But the human hand is not just about gestures. Some people believe that the hand can convey more. From the lines on the palm to the shape of the person's fingers, the hands can provide insight into a person's personality or character.
Are you wondering if the palm reading fate line is something that speaks of the truth? Here's a guide to palm reading to help you see things for yourself.
Palmistry or the reading of the palms is an ancient practice dating back thousands of years. While palm reading is often associated with fortune reading, the premise that guides those that read the hand is based on the idea that the person's hand reveals a lot about their character. Apart from learning more about the person...
There are many different ways to meditate at home. Whether you choose to engage in morning meditation or do it right before going to bed, it doesn't matter. As long as you can find a moment of quiet, you will be able to meditate properly.
Every meditation technique is beneficial. The beauty of spiritual meditation is that you can do it anytime, anywhere. Since most of them are relatively simple, you can do them on your own. The exercises range from simple breathing meditations to more complex forms of meditation.
The beauty of meditation is that its practice is something very personal. What could be relaxing for one person could be distracting for another person. Everyone can advise you on how to meditate, but the wonderful options of what to do are your choice.
Meditation should allow your mind to explore what's within you. It helps you go on an incredible journey of visiting and revisiting the innermost part of who you are. It is like...
The coronavirus pandemic has halted the world. While everyone was too busy living their lives and minding their own business, COVID-19 happened. All of a sudden, everyone was at home, practicing social distancing, and trying to cope with things they never expected to happen in this lifetime.
As the world continues to battle COVID-19 and the risks that it comes with, people have to teach themselves how to survive. But it is not just a matter of survival. It is also about living the best kind of life possible despite the pandemic.
Luckily, people have the option to engage in mindful living to cope with real-life challenges.
The promise of tomorrow, they say, will always be there. But with the advent of the pandemic, people have begun to wonder if tomorrow is ever going to come. While it remains to be unstable at this time, the more important thing to focus on is the promise brought about by today.
Your life and good health are...
