Have you heard of hallucinogenic therapy? In the1950s, psychedelic drugs like LSD took the market by storm. It was not surprising because it was one of the few treatments available back then for mental health. It was a significant step in seeing nature's effects on the body.
More than that, studies show—like the one by the Beckley Foundation on the effects of psilocybin on depression—that hallucinogens are an effective alternative treatment for various mental health problems. Experts have shown that hallucinogenic drugs can help people deal with their mental health concerns.
Sadly, twenty years after it was first introduced, hallucinogenic treatments were stalled in the 1970s. The large part of it was because psychedelic drugs developed a bad reputation.
People began to see it as a form of recreational drugs, although the legal psychedelics practice believed the drugs were beneficial to the public. However, the federal government...
How you deal with stress says a lot about your personality. It tells people the kind of coping mechanism you have and gives them a hint of how strong-minded you are. If you had the chance, what kind of stress coping technique would you try?
Stress is the feeling that one gets when they find themselves under a lot of pressure. This type of pressure can come in many forms for various sources. An increased workload, a dirty kitchen, toys on the floor, or an argument with a colleague—all of these can cause stress.
What's worse is that when you have to deal with more than one of these at the same time. The cumulative stressors could only make you suffer even more. How does your body respond to it?
Every person responds to stress differently. Some of its...
The director of this movie actually described it as a documentary... What does THAT tell you about society?
The untold truth of They Live is that it IS the truth. Despite being an initial failure at the box office, They Live is widely considered to be one of the forgotten masterpieces of 80s cinema, chocked full of cheesy one liners, overly-long fight scenes and B-movie special effects that look like they were made in someone’s garage. If you’ve seen the movie, you probably know everything we’re about to say, but for those who haven’t seen it - you can find it on YouTube.

Our aura is the semi-physical manifestation of our thoughts and feelings that we have about ourselves.
There are a ton of different ideas that relate to the aura. Some people can see auras, and some people can read auras. All of the reasons that we make decisions relate to the aura.
As said before, our aura is the semi-physical manifestation of our thoughts and feeling that we have about ourselves. It is not a random configuration of colors. It is not something that occurs from the outside of one's self. It exists as an outcome of varying internal processes, and it is not something that one needs to attempt to "change" to move in one direction or another. There is no useful hierarchy of auric resonance. This is a measurement of sorts, but it is not a judgment.
You don't need to "see" the aura of yourself or another to intuit one's experience. You know that when you feel good, you feel lighter, you feel more like you are glowing, you feel brighter. You know that...
The primary benefits of overcoming the fear of public speaking accrue NOT within the area of public speaking.
You realize that overcoming any fear is not about the ability to do what you are fearful of, but rather that overcoming your fear is a direct communication to your subconscious that you cannot be stopped from fulfilling your desires. Anyone can speak publicly so long as they can talk. This realization that fears being conquered is a step toward a more easeful, prosperous, happy life can be THE motivating factor.
Practice talking about a topic that you know a lot about.
Know that your personality is what needs to come out. Therefore, if you feel nervous speaking up in a meeting or to a group, this is not a BAD thing. There is just stagnant energy that wants to be moved. Getting in the flow is a prerequisite.
Particularly with public speaking, there is a particular aspect of overcoming this fear. There is a reason that it is one of the most common phobias. This...
Rejection, no matter what form it takes or who it comes from, hurts. There is no getting around it.
Every person wants to belong with those they truly care about. Feeling rejected by these people can hurt you so bad that you can’t imagine getting over it. Whether it is a friendship, a relationship, or a job, rejection is never a pleasant experience.
The pain of being rejected can cause a cut that’s so deep it could leave you broken for a while. Did you know that rejection has the same effect on you as that of physical pain? It triggers the same part of the brain that makes you ache when you are physically hurt.
There is no denying why a lot of people have that fear of not being good enough. They dread the thought of being rejected. If you have experienced it at least once or twice in your life, you probably do not want it to happen again.
Perhaps it has made you stronger than you thought you...

"As above so below." We most likely have all heard this saying at least once in our lives. These contrasting realms incessantly mimic one another in a glorious epic, and Astrology is the study that aims at demystifying that connection. It helps us navigate the invisible energies from the "above" that affect us down here in the "below." This year (2020) is the host of many resplendent astrological events, which may come to no surprise considering our world's current state. Among these events, there are the much talked about retrogrades. When talking about retrogrades, a specific celestial body gets the spotlight: Mercury, possibly due to how often it goes through this process. Still, all planets go through the same phase—albeit not as often. This year, every planet goes retrograde at least once, with Neptune and Mars' overlapping with the last Mercury retrograde for the year. This event will be taking place on October 14th. Since other retrogrades are...
There once lived a great warrior; though quite old, he could still defeat any challenger. His reputation extended far and wide throughout the land, and many students gathered to study under him.
One day an infamous young warrior arrived at the village. He was determined to be the first man to defeat the great master. Along with his strength and skill, he had the uncanny ability to spot and exploit an opponent's weakness.
He would wait for his opponent to make his first move, thus revealing a weakness, and then would strike with merciless force, at lightning speed.
No one had ever lasted in a match against him beyond the first move.
Much against his concerned students' advice, the old master gladly accepted the young warrior's challenge.
As the two squared off for battle, the young warrior began to hurl insults at the old master. He threw dirt and spit in his face, and for hours threw every manner of insult at his opponent known to humankind, but the old warrior stood there,...
Yoga has always been associated with focus and flexibility. People who engage in yoga speak of the many benefits that they enjoy by doing it. Not only has it helped them improve their attention, but it has allowed their body to become flexible in so many ways.
The practice of yoga dates back to ancient times. It involves holding one’s body and moving through a series of poses, each one targeting to improve a specific part of the body. While it may be focused on improving strength and flexibility, it also comes with breathing and meditation exercises to help achieve a calm mind.
The stretches and the various poses in yoga help in reducing chronic pain, and many of these are weight-bearing postures, which means they help strengthen the bones and...
