While vicious brush fires continue to tear across Australia, indigenous elders at the Budj Bim Cultural Landscape in Southeastern Australia celebrate an unexpected discovery caused by fire damage. The site is home to a sophisticated and extensive aqueduct system built over 6,600 years ago.
A Hopeful Discovery
After a series of bushfires scorched 7,000 hectares of the national park before being subdued, indigenous elders and park rangers were pleasantly surprised to discover previously hidden sections of the waterway system. The burning of high grasses and other vegetation made it possible to investigate new portions of the land.
Gunditj Mirring Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation project manager Denis Rose related that he and his team were less concerned about the fire damage to cultural structures, as most of them are stone products of the lava flow.
The group expressed concerns that the raging fires could cause large trees to uproot and disrupt structures,...
Few topics elicit such an extreme spectrum of reactions as money. Are you in the 'money is the root of all evil,' camp or the 'cash rules everything around me' camp- or somewhere in between these?
For those of us on the daily quest toward spiritual development and soulful self-expression, money has spent a long time on the no-no list in a lot of circles. Many famous religious and esoteric wisdom stories admonish about the pursuit of riches, prompting seekers to denounce material wealth in favor of morally loftier pursuits.
Despite all this variation of beliefs surrounding money, some of the most spiritually oriented people in fields like holistic medicine, philosophy, self-help, and spiritual businesses are flourishing financially and touting the virtues of money as a means for doing good in the world. So, can riches spread positive energy? And if so, what is the secret of money-makers who have an abundance of money while remaining spiritually oriented?
Here are ten perspectives to...
If there was any phrase uttered more often in 2019 than any other, it was 'trust your intuition!'
Having just ushered in the year 2020, we have, in our grasp, a fresh opportunity to develop our 2020 vision, learning to see beyond the obvious, the surface, and the mundane into the deeper truths of our lives.
To benefit from your intuition, you need not hire or become a psychic medium or intuitive healer. We all possess the innate ability to exercise intuition. So, before we reveal how to develop your intuition right away, let's be clear on what intuition is and what it isn't:
How do I know if it's my Intuition Speaking?
To navigate gracefully through life equipped with the power of your intuition, you must first learn to recognize it. Before you know it, your clairvoyant abilities reveal themselves.
Francis P. Cholle, writing for Psychologytoday.com, shares, "Intuition is a process that gives us the ability to know something directly without analytic reasoning, bridging...
Right in the near-center of your brain lies a small and seemingly inconspicuous organ; The pineal gland. This small gland, however, may be the very seat of the soul in your physical body. It is considered synonymous with your third eye chakra. Spanning many cultures throughout history and even surfacing in modern scientific research on consciousness, the pineal gland seems to play a profound role in how our spirits express through our bodies.
Here we'll break down what we know about this gland from the perspectives of the ancients. We'll see that through third-eye activation, we can supercharge our psychic and metaphysical gifts. We will also explore what habits and foods can help bring this third-eye organ to life, leading to third eye opening symptoms.
The Seat of the Soul
Many cultures have revered this gland, depicting it in sacred art and associating it with other esoteric symbols of power. There is a clear link between this gland and the third eye energy...
Lucid dreaming is not as complicated as you may think. It isn't an exaggeration that, if you follow tested methods, you could 'wake up' in your dreams tonight.
Lucid dreaming occurs when you dream a dream; you are aware that you're asleep. You wake up in the dream and thus can manipulate the world and events you experience in sleeping hours. By controlling some aspects of your dream sequences, you can have exciting, healing, and pleasurable experiences you never imagined.
One study suggests that around 82% of people experience lucid dreaming at some point in their life, while 19-37% of people lucid dream regularly. So, the odds are in your favor.
What Triggers Lucid Dreaming?
How to get lucid dreams is as simple as knowing what triggers them. Consider that while you may or may not be someone who remembers your dreams, nearly everyone dreams on a nightly basis.
We will be looking at methods that create the best chance to have a lucid dream tonight. However, it's still valuable...
Would you rather hear the good news first or the bad news? The bad news is that climate change has finally gained enough momentum that its effects have become palpable to the average person. The good news is that being able to feel the impact of global warming forces us to prioritize a solution.
"We're the first generation to feel the impact of climate change, and the last generation that can do something about it," said former President Barack Obama, quoting Washington State governor Jay Inslee.
With the clock indeed ticking and our collective anxiety rightly mounting, what better way than art to face the realities of climate change?
In light of these mounting climate change challenges, Italian sculptor Lorenzo Quinn installed a massive and masterfully rendered pair of human arms that appeared to support the famous Ca'Sagredo Hotel in Venice. Amongst Venice's historic bridges, gondolas, and canals, the hands appeared during the 57th International Art Exhibition of the Venice...
"Do you like my new haircut on me?" your friend asks. "I can't decide if it's flattering or not." You have a split second to formulate your response before your hesitation starts to show. You don't like the haircut as much as you favored her hair long. But you know that your friend is reactive. You know she is sensitive, having begun the divorce process recently, and you see this conversation could get- no pun intended-very hairy if you are sincere.
So, "Yes, I think it's a lovely cut on you," you answer. "It's just a little white lie," you tell yourself. Crisis averted.
Have you ever told a little white lie, such as the one above? It is a rare person who could say they have not sometimes, or even regularly, said a seemingly harmless lie or also strategically omitted the truth for what they deem to be a good reason. And this isn't just speculation. Solid science stands behind it.
The Verdict is In-Everyone's Telling Lies
On a nightly talk-show, Bella M....
If you repeat only one positive affirmation to yourself today, let it be this: I will say ''yes'' to my ''NO!'
How could two such inconspicuous letters come together to create such chaos?
Others may request your time, energy, or resources. When the needs or desires of others align with your own, the agreement comes easily. But when the time, place, or person isn't in sync, you must find a diplomatic way to say 'no.'
Navigating 'no' can be tricky in a sea of easily offended co-workers, family members, or friends. Before we dive into some strategies to decline a request with grace, let's explore the benefits;
Benefits of Saying 'No'
Boundaries: Boundaries are essential in maintaining a healthy relationship with yourself or anyone else, for that matter. We all walk around with an invisible bubble that defines what is us and what is not us. When it comes to how we choose to spend our time and energy, the same concept applies. If someone's request or offer will cause you to...
Spiritual and Esoteric practices like Yoga, Ayurveda, and a myriad of meditation techniques have become quite commonplace in modern western culture. Yet the less recognized phenomenon of astral travel (out of body experience) could hold a hidden key to the healing and enlightenment we seek.
We've connected the dots between tending to our spirituality and how it affects the mind-body-emotion dynamic. Imagine if we could enhance that soul-work by taking a spiritual journey to see life from a broader perspective?
Astral Projection: The Fast Track to Spiritual Enlightenment?
In leaving your body for a brief time, you have the opportunity to experience firsthand the realization that your soul exists beyond the boundaries of your body.
If you care about spiritual growth and soul expression, you should put astral travel at the top of your priority list. Let's explore what the astral plane, astral body, and astral travel are, as well as how to astral project and some cautions and tips to...
Thousands of years ago, the famous Buddha stated, "All that we are, is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become." While this may sound like a spiritual fantasy, several fields of science have demonstrated the integrity of the 'your thoughts create reality' concept. If our thoughts hold so much power, then sifting through and shaping our habitual thoughts will be one of the most valuable practices we ever take up for spiritual growth.
Let's take a look at some of the remarkable scientific observations that substantiate the words of the great Buddha.
