How do you tell if what you are engaged in is prayer or meditation? When it all comes down to definition, it may seem as if the two actually overlap each other. However, with great faith in God, you will be able to tell the difference between the spiritual meditation of prayer and the Eastern meditation practice. Knowing which one you are doing will allow you to tap into the other for support.
Meditation and prayer are both helpful tools in discovering who you are. Consistent practice will lead you towards the path of self-knowledge. However, do you have to choose which one to do and which one to give up entirely? Of course not.
Christian meditation engages a person in thought, emotion, imagination, and desire through prayer. They also call it mental prayer.
In most Christian teachings, every Christian needs to practice mental prayer every day. Your faith as a member of the Christian community will not survive...

Do you believe in psychic predictions? While it may be charming to consider what a mystic would say about your life, the constant and often pervasive need to know the future fuels the urge to believe in them.
People have always been obsessed with what the future holds for them. These are the people who think that destiny has got things figured out for them. It's like they want their palms to be read to give meaning to the life they live.
But have you ever considered the accuracy of what they are saying? Are psychics accurate enough to predict your death? It isn't just about when it's going to happen, but as to how you will die.
Sure, some people might think it's a bit morbid to think of death, especially when there's a whole life you can enjoy. However, the view of death should be viewed with a different light. It could mean one's passage to the next level of existence.
The psychic death is...
Have you been feeling off lately? Your goal is to thrive no matter what challenges may come your way, but life has become much more complicated. You're far from the optimal level of positivity that you want in your life.

How often have you rushed out the door, not knowing how you would go about your day? While you may be aware of all the things you need to do, you didn’t exactly have a plan on how to go about getting them done.
Before you know it, you missed out on a deadline or perhaps forgotten that you had to meet up with someone to discuss something important. Out of your frustration, you begin to think negatively about how the rest of the day will turn out. You may have lashed out on someone because your impatience has caused you to act out differently.
Simply put, you have found yourself doing something you never really intended to happen. And because it has happened in the past, you told yourself that you’d eventually get over the feeling. But how about those you’ve hurt with your words and your actions, will they get over the pain too?
Don’t get yourself stuck in this pattern of bad behavior. With the help of spiritual meditation, you can...
What is the law of karma? How much do you know about it? Karma is defined by action. The basic principle that surrounds the idea of karma is this: your action is always equivalent to a reaction. Whatever it is you choose to do, you will have to deal with the equal consequences that come with it.
The principles behind karma may lean towards the spiritual aspects of life, but it comes with a scientific counterpart. Its idea is much like Newton’s Law of Motion. This law states that for every action, there is always an equal but opposite reaction.
The karma theory, on the other hand, believes that if you let negative emotions take over you, negative energy will come running back your way too.
The theory of karma comes with its own set of principles, similar to the 12 Laws of the Universe. Here are some of them that you should know:
This is also known as the law of cause and effect....

This week we are looking at the topic of psi phenomenon and the science behind it. Perhaps you are reading this and do not believe in the existence of such things as telepathy, clairvoyance, or precognition. By the end of this article, though, hopefully, you will become familiar both with some of the evidence of psi phenomenon documented in controlled experiments performed in careful laboratory conditions, as well as the underlying scientific explanation for these phenomena.
Phenomena such as telepathy may seem like magic to some people, and depending on...
How do you help yourself get up when your mind keeps telling you you can’t? What kind of help can you give yourself when it seems as if even your own mind has given up on you? This is what it feels like for people who are suffering from depression. It seems there is nothing they can do about their lives because of what their mind tells them.
Has it become hard for you to get out of bed to go to work? You once thought it was all laziness, but then you realized, either through self-reflection or through visiting a therapist, that it might actually be depression keeping you down. You don’t have the energy to do things, and you don’t feel like doing anything at all because your brain tells you that you can’t do it or that you are not good enough.
If you keep hearing voices in your head telling you that you can’t do something, how will you ever begin to fight it?

Separation and divorce can be very messy, and most couples would rather not even imagine themselves going through something like that. However, the reality for many couples is that they would be better off apart. When the relationship has been so strained, it’s just impossible to repair the damage. Sometimes, even when a couple does everything to save the marriage, it’s already too late, and they can no longer find reasons to reconcile.
Each failed marriage has its own reasons why it didn’t work. It could be easy to think that the number one reason is infidelity. But one of the most common reasons for divorce is actually the lack of communication between couples. When partners cannot openly talk to each other, it becomes difficult to discuss important matters. Fights and arguments could go on and on without any clear resolution.
There are several causes of divorce today. If you want to prevent your marriage from going down this path, it’s crucial...
Mindfulness is a state of mind where you are aware of what is happening around you and within you. Mindfulness is a traditional practice that helps you find your focus. Recently, it has become very popular as specialists use it as a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy.
To understand the idea of mindfulness, you must practice mindfulness yourself. There are some things that you can't just read about to grasp fully. When you become mindful, you become more aware of your external surroundings. Moreover, you become more aware of your inner experiences, including the proper responses to the things happening to you.

The practice of mindfulness itself is not difficult. However, it requires a...
