A Hindu Priest Explains How Your Subconscious Mind Can be Reprogrammed

The subconscious mind is akin to that unseen portion of an iceberg which remains underwater. Some believe that up to 95% of our mental activity takes place in the subconscious, just below our conscious awareness. This ‘underwater’ portion of the mind is never inactive, though, as it continues to collect and process information even when we are asleep.

Sophrology: A Hidden Gem to Tackle Self-Doubt

I’ve suffered from crippling self-doubt for most of my life. Self-doubt first punches me in the face, making me think I will never achieve anything, and then stabs me in the back after I have achieved something, making me wonder if I only made it by sheer luck. Nice work, self-doubt!

The 8 Stages of Conscious Evolution

Have you ever wondered … about what level of consciousness you’re truly at? Not in terms of it being a contest, or to say you’re better/worse than other people, but as a kind of inner GPS that simply tells you where you are? As humans, we tend to have very distorted and biased perspectives, especially when it comes to ourselves. It’s really easy to go on a yoga retreat and think you’ve transcended stress forever, or think you’re enlightened after reading a few spiritual books. This is why it’s crucial to have references that “tell it like it is” and objectively reflect where you’re at.

Buddhists and Leading Neuroscientists Agree: “Consciousness is Everywhere”

“Broadly speaking, although there are some differences, I think Buddhist philosophy and Quantum Mechanics can shake hands on their view of the world. We can see in these great examples the fruits of human thinking. Regardless of the admiration we feel for these great thinkers, we should not lose sight of the fact that they were human beings just as we are.” – the Dalai Lama

How to Face Resentment and Other Challenging Emotions

Every time I walked into the kitchen, my blood would boil. The stains from years of cooking irritated the hell out of me. This wasn’t part of the deal. When my girlfriend and I rented this house, we were super excited. It was closer to our families, closer to work, and there was a backyard for the dogs to play in.

  10 Life Lessons I Learned as a Psychiatric Nurse – and Patient  

10 Life Lessons I Learned as a Psychiatric Nurse – and Patient

Over the past 25 years, I have been immersed in the mental health and addiction system as a patient, later as staff, as a Registered Nurse (RN), and eventually as a supervisor. My time in the mental health system officially began at age 17 when I was first hospitalised in a psychiatric unit. This preceded further hospitalisations, a number of treatment episodes for alcoholism/addiction, along with multiple stints of incarceration in jails. Eventually, through this experience, I was able to embrace recovery and ultimately gain employment at some of these same facilities in which I was treated.

  How to Access the Creative Potential of the Mind  

Are We Consciously Using Our Power to Choose?

As we move through life, and navigate our experiences, we are constantly in a position of choice. Each moment presents yet another opportunity to choose anew. Each second holds a new choice point from which to start again in the now. With each step forward on our path, we get to choose where we place our foot next.

How to Access the Creative Potential of the Mind

We have all heard that we humans do not utilise the full capacity of our brains, and that only a fragment of the forces of our mind are used in our daily lives. The full utilisation of the potentials of our mindwould, however, add to our personality an immense creative force. The question therefore arises, how are we able to access the creative forces of our Mind?

Trust Your Own Truth

Henry David Thoreau once said “Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.” For some time recently, I had been deeply questioning what is true and how can I know what is real? I have wondered what is the purpose of life and what is beyond it. I felt lost and uncertain of life and it’s purpose. What are we all doing here? It came to a point where I felt there were three main things I knew:

You Are the Solution!

Bob Marley couldn’t have been more right when he sang that there’s “so much trouble in the world”. Our planet is in chaos, and most people are trying their best to pretend that it’s all normal, or that it will go away on its own.

  The Sleep of Separateness  

The Sleep of Separateness

From the standpoint of ordinary consciousness, separateness seems to be a basic part of the human condition. Most human beings experience themselves as egos trapped inside their own mind-space, observing a world which seems to be out there, on the other side of their skulls. As a result, the normal human state is one of aloneness. We Are always onlookers rather than participants. We can communicate with other people by speaking, writing or gesturing, but they will never be able to truly know us, or to share our thoughts and feelings. Our inner being will always be sealed off from them.

Harvard Goes to the Himalayas – Monks with ‘Superhuman’ Abilities Show Scientists What We Can All Do

It’s fascinating to consider just how many ancient teachings tell us that humans have the capacity to gain extraordinary powers through various techniques. Some of these techniques, known as “siddhis” in the yoga tradition (from the Sanskrit, meaning “perfection”), include meditation, static dancing, drumming, praying, fasting, psychedelics, and more. ~ Carl Jung

Be Like Water: The Need for Adaptive Fluidity

As the proliferation of staged events and the accompanying fear campaigns and predictable clampdowns ensue, it’s always good to take stock of any situation unfolding and assess how best to handle what’s transpiring. With the playing field changing at such a rapid rate, locally as well as globally, it’s wise to see how to perhaps adjust our sights as well as personal attitudes and outlook, all the while staying completely clear of any reaction with even the faintest smell of fear.

It’s Time to Pop Your Conspiracy Theory Cherry  

It’s Time to Pop Your Conspiracy Theory Cherry

Anyone who has spent the time going deep down the “rabbit hole”and researching in the realms of alternative information/conspiracy theory knows that a large majority of the world’s population hasn’t a clue as to what’s really going on in the world. However, all alternative researchers can relate to this because at one point they too were admittedly naïve and asleep to it all. In fact, almost all humans are born into some form of limited perception. There is a reason that the term “awakened” is often used by people in reference to their personal transformation from an “in-the-box indoctrinated consumer” to an “open-minded free-thinker.”

Throughout the ages, there have been many who have had a taste of incredibly mesmerising higher states of consciousness.

There is a heightening level of awareness within the human race with regard to nature and all that it contains within it. Everything from the discoveries of the rudiments of language in monkeys, metacognition in dolphins, self-awareness of elephants, the ability for animals to tell “right” from “wrong”, to the creation and extension of bills of rights for animals and plants by countries such as Switzerland and Ecuador as well as the acknowledgment of dolphins as being non-human persons.
