It is believed that the place in the body that houses our thoughts is located in one specific place. But is it just in the brain? Anyone who has taken a philosophy class may wonder if it's just the brain that makes people think their thoughts. Perhaps it is our souls that directs us how and what to think and feel.
Are our thoughts just a product of natural human anatomy? Is human biology responsible for the ideas in our head and the emotions in our hearts? A lot of things are thought about whenever people engage in philosophy.
Have you ever thought about how to become a philosopher? Perhaps it has never crossed your mind, although you wonder how these people came to be. While some people think that philosophers only question things in life and their existence, the only question left to ask in return is, why aren't you?
It is reasonably common to dismiss that philosophers only want to question the things that do not fit their...
Have you been feeling bloated lately? Have you been dealing with unwanted negative feelings? Perhaps you should consider how your diet and exercise plan is affecting your mood and your body. An effective way to quickly solve these types of issues is to take a more natural detox approach.
You may have heard of veggie cleanses and the positive effects they can have on the body. Veggies naturally cause internal cleansing that makes you feel healthy and clean from the inside out. If you haven't been getting your daily intake of fruits and vegetables, with all the toxins inside you, it's no wonder why you've been feeling so low.
Toxin build-up in the body is not just about making you feel unhealthy. It is also about losing all the positive energy that your body could use to doing something productive. Unless you want your body to feel sicker, then you have to do something about the toxins. Just to be on the safe side, always remember to speak to your doctor...
When you have questions about love and life, who do you run to? Is there a person you trust with how you feel? Does this person have all the answers that you seek to find for yourself? If you have a spiritual guru who tells you exactly what you need to hear, you are lucky.
Most people spend their time on Google trying to find answers to their life’s biggest questions when they should be turning to themselves.
People often go to their life guru whenever there is something they need to know about themselves. Most of the time, this happens when an important decision needs to be made. Who do you turn to when it feels like something about your life you don’t understand?
You seek the wisdom of a teacher or a life expert who you think has insights about life. They are the people you believe will be able to help you understand yourself. You think that they know you more than you know yourself.
But is this true?...
How much do you know about tantra meditation? While many would relate the practice to tantra couples saying that it is all about intimacy and sex, the contemporary and Western adoption of the practice isn't all about that.
When you learn tantra, you will be led to its roots deeply tied to the concepts of romance and pleasure. More than that, it is all about people being able to tune their minds, bodies, and spirits to only want the same thing.
Tantra yoga, also known as tantric yoga, is a kind of yoga practice aligned with the tantra. This is an ancient tradition that originated from Tibet, India, and some other parts of Asia.
Tantra yoga is often associated with various tantric sex positions. It defines the sensual aspects of sex that elevates the act to the spiritual level. In truth, the sexual practices related to tantra is just one aspect of the whole course.
It may be referred to as neo-tantra, considering...
You may have heard the word in passing or you may be reading it for the first time. From whichever path you have come, you have been brought here because you were curious enough to explore the truth of what Reiki or Reiki Healing is. Be sure to explore even more spiritual mysteries here!
I face this question regularly, and I admit, even as a Reiki Grandmaster, I have struggled with formulating a perfect answer. It feels as though it would be easier to answer by stating what Reiki is not, simply because it can be so many things to so many different people. Before I describe what I believe Reiki to be, I think it is appropriate to cover the basics of mainstream Reiki.
The most widely accepted definition for Reiki comes from the International Center for Reiki Training:
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force...
When was the last time you told your kids to stop reading and watch television instead? Can you remember when you asked them to indulge in playing their game boy instead of doing their homework? You probably won't remember doing either because you've never even thought about doing them, not even in your wildest dreams.
You don't allow your kids to watch too much television or ditch school work for video games because you know what is good for them. And because you want to give them the best opportunities, you want to try out various meditation techniques to help get them started.
You get your kids the best birthday presents for Christmas or their birthday because you want them to know that they deserve the best. You do whatever it takes to make them live happy and healthy lives.
Perhaps you've heard of kids' yoga benefits, and you want to know if it's something that could work for your children.
Here are some facts about...
Well, in the most simple terms Pranamaya is breathing. More specifically, it is breathing in a particular fashion or with a specific technique to affect the transportation of prana throughout the body.
Prana is the ancient yogic term for energy or "life-force." The reason we use specific breathing techniques to stimulate this "life-force" is to create balance in the body. Energy in the human body is much like dark energy/matter in astrophysics. We can sense it, but we don't really know as much as we need to about it.
What we do know is that when this human "life-force" energy gets blocked, constricted, or flows inefficiently, we end up with chronic pain and illness. Along with a whole...
Are you one of those who carry their meditation crystals wherever they go? There's no need to be embarrassed about believing in the healing powers of jewelry and power stones. Their beauty is not so that you can wear a pretty accessory from time to time.
If only people looked closer, they would realize that healing jewelry indeed comes with special powers. These gems are infused with millions of years of history on Earth, granting them a different kind of magic that helps boost your mind and positive energy.
Learning how crystals work should help you decide which ones you need. But then again, like any exercise or diet programs, not all crystals can be used to your advantage. You have to make sure you find the one that works well for you.
The use of the crystals on a day-to-day basis takes a lot of practice. What works for others may not necessarily work for you. Although this is a fact, the good news is that there...

Neptune is a planet shrouded in mystery, and that is just what it symbolizes. The planetary equivalent of the God of the Oceans dwells in the unseen realm and urges the world to do the same. To Neptune, nothing is impossible, and for that reason, through Neptune's cycles, we learn how to dream and imagine a more enjoyable and exciting world of possibility. Still, there is a heavy sense of duality within it, as the world of fantasy is the ideal environment for tricks and illusions to unfold. In that sense, Neptune trains us to discern real from the illusions of life in 3D. On its negative polarity, in the pursuit of an ideal, Neptune can manifest harmful coping mechanisms, escapism, and abuse of alternate mental states. That being said, it is crucial to learn how to work with these planetary energies properly to balance our inner Neptunes masterfully.
As we have explored in the previous article of this series, "The Symbology of The...
Life is not making sense, is it?
Are you ready for the awakening? You thought you knew everything there was to know about the world, about reality.
