Spirit Mysteries is an online, membership-only Mystery School containing hundreds of hours of courses and thousands of students across the world.
Writers, managers, journalists, or keynote speakers are often the people you find writing. While it may seem as if they are the only ones who can genuinely benefit from daily writing, anyone can benefit from developing their writing skills.
You can begin by keeping a daily journal. Humans are naturally social animals. While most of us utilize both verbal and non-verbal communication strategies, only a small part of these strategies are required for writing.
When you stop to ask why is writing important, ask yourself if you could survive not checking your social media account, posting a status update, or commenting on other people’s updates of their lives. This also includes the text messages you send through your mobile phone or your written response to the email sent to you by a client.
These daily tasks require you to write, and unless you write your messages very well, you won’t be able to get the right one across.
Your mindset is the window to how your mind works. It is how you view yourself, your experiences, and the world. Your mindset is not just your opinion. It is putting your core beliefs into something with more perspective. It creates a massive influence on how you do things, how you perceive them, and practically how you go through life.
Mindset is everything, and it is wherever everything that you do begins.
Did you know that a positive view of aging could reduce at least eight years from your actual age? It is not just about looking or feeling younger, and it is about wanting to pursue more. It will encourage you to engage in healthier options.
So instead of indulging in unhealthy snacks, you are likely to go for something all-natural and healthy like a garden salad for dinner, or celery and carrots for snacks. A positive mindset could also make you want to exercise more. The focus is not just to lose weight, but to...
We’d love to think that we’re good people all the time and that we don’t easily make judgments about others. However, we are imperfect beings who do not have full control of what we think or say. We may try our best to be good, but at some point, we’re terribly flawed, and at times, it shows when it comes to how we think about other people.
Why do we judge others, and how do we stop ourselves from doing this? The truth about judgmentalism is that it’s one of the reasons why we can’t feel whole. It’s a big obstacle because we entertain negative thoughts and feelings that poison our system. Always judging people does nothing good for us. The best way to combat this is to learn the beauty of accepting others for who they are.
If you’re a judgmental individual, you think, speak, and act in ways that are always condemning and critical. This person is one who always...
Does it feel like your kids are out of control? At some point, they have pushed you too hard that you thought you’d lose your sanity. It might help to know that you’re not the only parent who has this problem. While many may not admit it, most parents find child management to be a challenge.
Some parents have learned how to manage two kids whenever they fight or argue. Some have surrendered to the idea that dealing with out of control kids is a family norm. Whenever children refuse to do what they are asked, listen to their elders, or simply decide to break the house rules, parents find child care truly frustrating.
Whenever it feels like your kids have become out of control, you can just stop and let it be. You have to work to get your power back. After all, you should maintain your parental authority for your own sake and your child’s well-being.
If you want to be able to manage at home and not struggle for...
If you have regrets about not learning more things when you were younger, don’t. It’s never too late to start learning again. We’re lucky because these days, it’s much easier to access quick learning, like a community painting lesson, or more intensive learning like an online college class. With the internet, tutorial videos, and free materials that we can download easily, there’s no reason that we can’t take on new lessons and expand our knowledge even more.
Another thing that we also have in our hands now is time. When we were in school, we had to take the required classes even if we weren’t interested in them. Now, we can freely learn whatever it is that we want to know. Whatever you’re interested in, like painting, cooking, gardening, carpentry—the list can go on and on—you’re sure to find a tutorial about it on the internet. All you need is the willingness to take on the challenge...

In the previous blog, we explored the principle of mentalism and how it is explained via physics. There we saw that modern attempts at unifying quantum mechanics with general relativity reveal that space is an illusion generated from underlying entangled quantum information. Corroborating this, we discussed the parallels between modern physics and virtual information processing effects. Lastly, we discussed the identification of consciousness as entangled information under integrated information theory and other approaches. The end result is that spacetime, i.e., physical reality, is emergent from consciousness in a mental universe. If you are interested, check it out here in the last blog.
This is all explained in much more detail in Chapter II of The Quantum Hermetica (TQH), which can be found here.
However, in this blog, we will explore the second Hermetic Principle, which is the Principle of Correspondence. This principle deals with what is going on...
Imagine if you had the extraordinary power to make everyone happy with a particular song that you love to sing.
Would you sing all day long?
Or would you only sing the song when the majority of those who are listening to you are sad? If you choose to only sing at times when you feel like the world needs it, not only are you robbing the world of the comfort of hearing you sing, you are narrowing the range of people that you can help because you are not willing to share the gift given to you.
How much of your life do you live for others? Have you ever wondered how to expand yourself in order to help others?
In the past, you were too worried about how you could achieve your dreams. You wondered how else you could improve your personal life so that you could live comfortably. What you could do for others always took a back seat.
But now you’re thinking, how do you turn those special gifts of yours into gifts for others?
If you want to improve your productivity, do you know that it’s vital to get good sleep every night? Sleep has a significant effect on our overall health as well as on our ability to focus and do our tasks well during the day. We get to absorb new information effectively, concentrate on challenging tasks, and become mentally and emotionally stable.
With all the great benefits of good sleep, you would think that most people would make an effort to get eight hours of shut-eye each night. However, a third of the population is not getting enough sleep, and because of this, their ability to perform their jobs well is compromised. According to experts, this effect on productivity in the United States alone means a loss of over $680 billion a year.
A healthy sleep pattern is essential if you want to make sure that you’re getting the most of your days. You’ll be able to do better with your work or...
What does it mean to have a flexible mind? When you often find yourself frustrated or disappointed because things are not going your way, then you may need to learn about developing flexibility. The flexibility that we're talking about is the ability to shift from one task to accommodate another. It is also about your ability to handle a number of thought processes at a particular time. Do you have difficulties practicing flexible thinking? If you do, then read along so you'll learn about how to develop a flexible mind.
Imagine your brain as a kind of muscle. When you use it more and challenge it, our minds become more flexible and can easily adjust to changes or new situations. We can be more flexible to change if we're more willing to get out of our comfort zones and expose ourselves to challenges. The more we practice and expose ourselves to new things, then we can become even more creative and resilient, which, in turn,...
Do you often feel that your life isn’t the one that you dreamed of? Maybe you think that a lot is lacking in your life. You don’t own your dream house, you’re not driving a fancier car, your paycheck isn’t that big, and you’re stuck in a job that leaves you exhausted every single day. If this is how you view your life, it’s not surprising that you’re unsatisfied and disappointed. But there’s a way to turn things around and make things better, and that is by changing your attitude.
If you can be a bit more grateful for what you have instead of whining about what you don’t, you’ll find that you actually have everything that you need. You see, gratitude changes everything. Look around your home and try to number your reasons to be grateful. You have a roof above your head, your fridge is probably full, or at least there’s food in there, you have electricity and...
