Is it Healthy To have Expectations?

Let’s take a look at what it means to ‘expect’ something:

ex-pect [ik-spekt] – verb:  to look forward to; regard as likely to happen; anticipate the occurrence or the coming of:

Based on this definition, an expectations is, in essence, merely a form of hope or trust. Trust that what has been created by intention will occur…

In my view, there are two kinds of expectation to consider. Expectations can be a limiting, destructive tool of the ego, and can also be a healthy form of hope and expression of trust in our relationships.

This Spice Prevents Fluoride From Destroying Your Brain!

Fluoride is found everywhere today, from antibiotics to drinking water, no stick pans to toothpaste, making exposure inevitable. All the more reason why new research proving this common spice can prevent fluoride damage is so promising!

Fluoride’s neurotoxicity has been the subject of academic debate for decades, and now a matter of increasingly impassioned controversy among the general public, as well. From ‘conspiracy theories’ about it being first used in drinking water in Russian and Nazi concentration camps to chemically lobotomize captives, to its now well-known IQ lowering properties, to its ability to enhance the calcification of the pineal gland – the traditional ‘seat of the soul’ – many around the world, and increasingly in the heavily fluoridated regions of the United States, are starting to organize at the local and statewide level to oust this ubiquitous toxicant from municipal drinking water.

New Study: Meditation Alters Genes Rapidly, Triggers Molecular Changes

If you are a practitioner of meditation, the results of a new study published in Psychoneuroendocrinology will likely come as no surprise. But for some scientists, the revelation that meditating can actually trigger molecular changes is groundbreaking.

Meditation found to trigger molecular changes

The researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Institute of Biomedical Research in Barcelona, Spain found subjects who partook of 8-hour intensive mindfulness meditation showed significant molecular changes.

A group of experienced meditation practitioners spent an 8-hour day in mindfulness while a control group spent the day in quiet but non-meditative activities. The meditation group experienced genetic changes including reduced levels of inflammatory genes like RIPK2 and COX2, indicating faster recovery from stressful situations.

Far from the first study on meditation, this is the first to demonstrate molecular changes caused by the age-old practice.

You can actually make your own for less than half the price of the “Official” mats on the market, and for those of you who have these tools already just laying around your house… it’s even cheaper!

Not to mention, It’s incredibly fun to do!

So, what are you going to need? Here’s a list of supplies:

Supplies:
Plastazote Foam Roll
Scissors
X-acto Knife
Stencil
Hot Glue Gun
Assorted Moss Plugs (available at local gardening centers)

Now that we’ve got that down, what’s next? Read full instructions here!

How Do You Stop An Asteroid Hurling Through Space?

There is something uniquely amazing about the universe we live in. The way it operates in such perfect randomness, simultaneously creating and destroying itself without any regard to it’s very existence…it just IS. Entire planets and, indeed, entire galaxies are forever hurling around, through and within each other. Days & seasons come & go. Even the atoms and molecules that make up our physical being are always moving in a pattern of natural rotation.

Occasionally, a planet (or being) will find itself hurling through it’s space on a path of direct collision with another planet (or being). What is either of these planets to do?! Does an asteroid see a moon in it’s path & decide to go around it to avoid destruction? Of course not..it goes hurling on it’s path of natural flow and smashes into the moon, being shattered into millions of pieces. And what of the moon? It just spins along on it’s path and gets struck.

Immunity Gold – Promotes optimal immune system performance with essential antioxidants to help neutralize free radicals!

This collision inevitably creates a shift in not only the form of the two masses, but also the path they were on..an instantaneous transformation on all levels. The asteroid is now torn apart and the moon is scarred and jilted, but both continue in their altered existence as if it were nothing. The collision was somehow ‘meant’ to happen in order for the natural progression of the universe to take place.

It is said that at one point in time, the planet we live on was once a dark and empty place with no life…until another mass collided with it, smashing it into pieces. Some of these pieces supposedly spun off and formed the moon and what was left became the Earth we live on today. In this scenario, our very existence would not be had this collision not taken place.

In our lives most people seem to do just the opposite. We don’t want to destroy ourselves or others by causing collisions, so we go through life trying to navigate around others and plan our path to what we perceive is the easiest way to go forward. The problem with this is that we end up losing ourselves from our natural path, creating chaos, confusion, and imbalance.

We have become so afraid of the destruction that comes from such collisions that we detract ourselves from our natural path to avoid them, but it is sometimes out of those same collisions that new and beautiful things are created.

Eat The Rainbow: The Power of Color In Foods

 

Bright colors serve a dual purpose for plants. By attracting mobile eaters to the pretty color, the plant is able to spread it’s seeds (which, in Nature, end up somewhere in a warm pile of manure to grow from). It also produces a vast array of phytochemicals that protect the plant from the elements and produce nutrients the plant can’t otherwise get.

Fortunately, we humans can take advantage of both of these purposes. The brightly colored fruits and veggies are not only visually appealing, but packed with all those protective nutrients! Here is a breakdown of the benefits each color group provides.
