The Art of Lovemaking

loveby Edith Boyer-Telmer
Dear Friends,
for some days now, again and again the theme of our collective human sexuality popped up and created the energy for the shifts and changes, appearing within the new relationship paradigm. We talked about the influence the constant consume of pornography can have on the masculine mind and brain reward system. And I shared the beautiful, open, heartfelt and authentic confession of a friend, about what kind of influence his regular porn watching had on his relationship.  As we are shifting another little step deeper into the Golden Age of Aquarius and into the openness for a new, evolved human sexuality. Many of you expressed by now your feelings and hopes for this changes. So here are some baby steps how to start, and move from having sex, into a mode of “making love”. I hope this Gemini Full Moon’s energies have filled you up with bravery and passion, and that you find the right person to share all your dreams and desire with!!!
Blessings, Love and Light
Edith

This is an excerpt from the article “Pornography Verses Conscious Sexuality”, from Stella Muse:
The Art of Lovemaking

Conscious sex leads to LOVE making. Learning the art of lovemaking, of intimacy and connection with your partner beyond diving direct into genital stimulation is so empowering personally and in a couple. When my clients realize this, learn and practice this they express there is no longer a desire for porn as it doesn’t satisfy like love does.

Gift Presence
Being conscious means being present, totally and utterly in the moment; with yourself if it is self pleasure or with your beloved if you are enjoying together. You are not distracted, thinking about the ‘to do’ list from the day, neither are you worrying about how your body looks in the light or if some part of you is big enough or small enough. None of these ‘personality’ driven thoughts are given any attention. Instead, that mind power is channeled into presence and thus love for your beloved. As you let go of everything else you loosen, you relax, you soften and open to melt into them and the moment. Being fully in the here and now on a regular basis with yourself first and foremost through practices such as meditation, yoga, floating and mindfulness allows you to better drop into the moment and be present with your beloved as well. Gifting presence is a priceless gift of love to your beloved which in turn is also a gift to your relationship and yourself.

Get Intimate
When you are present you are really being with the other person and this is when the intimacy builds. Intimacy also depends on how honest you are with yourself and your beloved. You can not lie to yourself and you can not lie to a beloved if you want to get intimate. Your innate desire for intimacy is your desire to know and experience yourself deeply and to be truly known by your beloved.

11988521_10153391755423515_3098415974840019079_n4 simple ways to build intimacy before you get to the bedroom

Share Ideas – Be open minded, listen and share; perhaps it’s planning a holiday, booking a restaurant, or creating something together from a meal to a business launch.

Share Emotions – Without projection – Own how you’re feeling – share your emotions in a loving manner. This opens your heart to your beloved and brings you closer.

Have a Snuggle – Snuggling and hugging is endorphin raising. Holding someone and/or being held allows your body to slow down enough to connect deeper; to feel the others warmth, their energy merge with yours and welcome them into your personal space. This can be as intimate as you allow.

Touch to Feel – Conscious touch means being present while you are touching to deeply feel the other person can be extremely intimate. This transforms the stroke of an arm or cheek to a sensual interaction. Building upon this with touch after touch can awaken the fire between you both.

4 simple steps to spark Conscious Sex / Lovemaking

Set the scene – Candles, music, incense, dim lights, some champagne, ice cubes, strawberries, a blind fold, mirrors, warming or cooling of the room. Use your imagination it can be as simple as one candles by your bed or turning your space into a sacred temple of love worship.

Eye gazing – Eyes are the windows to the soul and are the powerhouse of sparking intimacy and fueling passion. Try; sit knee to knee, women on top, stand naked across the room from each other, or in front of a mirror if you are alone and look deeply into the eyes of yourself or your beloved. In them you will see yourself, you can see love, oneness, unity, Divinity. What else can you see? What do you feel? Where in your body do you feel it?hqdefaultSensual touch – Where on your body or your partners body do you love to touch, explore, be licked, kissed, tasted, tickled, pinched, massaged? Go to other areas besides the breasts or genitals, make them hungry, wet, begging, desiring, excited, turned on, juicy for more before you go near the genitals.

Body Worship – This is the time to slow dance your way around the body temple, yes, slow. Slow it right down. Once you do make it to breast, yoni or lingam touch, take your time. This should be a dance or enticing erotica. THIS foreplay is lovemaking, it is being present in the heat of the moment, in the HEART of the moment.

The key distinction is that conscious lovemaking goes beyond the physical, you are penetrating each others hearts and souls as well. A  conscious lover tunes into their beloveds movements, the flush of their skin, their breath and heart rate increasing, the little quivers or moans. They tune into the energy of their beloved and respond with passion and love. For some there is a healthy curiosity, a desire to experiment, mix things up and/or explore porn but once that has been achieved and the art of LOVE making, of conscious sex has been learned and practiced the distinction between the two is so vast it is like your eyes opening for the first time and you can not close them and shy away from what you have seen (felt, tasted…) ever again. This is the power of conscious sex, this is the power of making LOVE through opening to being Divine LOVE.

Yogic Tools For A Better Sex Life – From ‘Having Sex’ to ‘Making Love’

make love

Dear Friends,
I shared this wonderful piece about a year ago and today realized, it is even more inspiring now as we are collectively invited to understand sexuality on a completely different level than before. It complements perfectly my post about the sacredness of our human sexuality, within the new relationship paradigm for the Golden Age of Aquarius. I hope you like it as much as I did, and that you feel inspired by the practical tips the author is providing! Have fun experimenting and discovering yourself and your partner in the beauty of your soul’s light!!
Blessings and Love!
Edith

The key is to view our sexuality holistically—not just as a physical or emotional experience. When we honor our sexuality as the most potent energy we possess (literally the ability to create life), we realize a powerful opportunity for cultivating union—a deep, soulful merging between two people. Turn your love making into a spiritual practice. Use sex to awaken, express your creativity and expand consciousness. In yoga, this is called bramacharya (containment and mindful use of sexual energy) and is one of the 10 foundations (yamas) of living a yogic life.

1. Choose Partners Wisely
Look and choose partners that have the same intention as you. For example, if you are seeking a relationship, be clear they have the same intention. If you just want a lover, make sure your partner is on the same page. Is this a monogamous relationship or open? Transparency builds mutual trust and understanding and creates the safety necessary for your psyche and soul to feel safe enough to expand. Having honest, direct conversations means you’re setting the foundation of love and respect.

2. Agree on the Ground Rules
Prior to entering into a sexual relationship, have a conscious dialogue around basics such as sexually transmitted diseases, what type of birth control you’ll use and even what happens if you do get pregnant. It’s crucial to set and agree on ground rules in order to build a foundation where both partners feel understood.
If you have trouble discussing touchy subjects with your partner, it’s a good indication that there is not enough care, friendship, emotional connection or psychological development between you to warrant moving into a sexual relationship. In other words, if you can’t be honest about your needs or truth, ask yourself why? Is this really an appropriate sexual partner for you? Bonus: deeper intimacy and physical satisfaction comes when you feel safe, heard and respected!

3. Practice Deep Breathing
Before you enter the physical love making, get in the habit of slowing down and resonating with your partner by breathing together. Conscious sexuality is not about orgasm. It’s not even about intercourse. When we focus our attention on the breath, we move out of a goal oriented, physical process and into a more ‘feeling state’ connected to the subtle, non-linear, energetic body.
Making love is two people truly seeing, feeling, celebrating and honoring each other—a merging of the two into the one. When you deepen and slow down your breath, you open over 72,000 energetic pathways or nadis. This relaxes your body, increasing blood circulation which can lead to fuller, more pleasurable orgasms (not necessarily the goal). It also calms the mind and softens the ego. You will begin to connect to your partner from a more generous, humble, open and authentic place. If you notice continued deep, conscious breathing is difficult for you, get thyself to a yoga class!7898900_f5204. Practice Soul Gazing
Another powerful exercise to build energetic and emotional alignment with your partner is Soul Gazing. This is an open-eye meditation where you simply sit comfortably and relax together. Start by sitting on the floor or bed across from each other in a cross-legged position (or whatever feels comfortable). Sit close together, knees almost touching. Lengthen through your spine, relax your shoulders, face, jaw, tongue and your expectations. Make and gently hold eye contact. (It is helpful to look left eye to left eye so the eyes are not darting back and forth.) Begin to observe each other silently. Take each other in. Watch your breath without trying to control it. Observe what you see in the other person and how it feels to truly be seen. Let any thoughts, judgments, expectations, defenses or tension rise and silently fall away. Relax, breathe, see, be seen and feel.
For many people, it is extremely difficult to maintain eye contact here. Laughter often arises, a feeling of silliness or fidgeting. Simply notice this and allow it to rise and fall away like waves in the ocean. Come back to the breath. Silently sit and gaze into each others’ eyes—with no expectation—for a minimum of 15 minutes.
When you move out of the personality and verbal mode of communicating, you begin to simply be with another and drop into a more authentic space. Your connection deepens out of the “False Self” we tend to project. You begin seeing through the eyes of the heart and perceiving your partner beyond the roles and identity you have attached to them. Expectations and judgements slip away. The Soul or Spirit becomes more tangible. Attuning and bringing your energies into alignment with deep breathing and soul gazing will immediately enhance the intimacy in your relationship even when you are not having sex.

5. Set an Intention
Allow your love making to turn into a spiritual practice. This is often referred to as ‘sexual magic’ —or using sex as a gateway for spiritual evolution and deep psychological and emotional healing. One way to begin this practice is to simply set an intention or say a prayer before making love. Ask Spirit to enter the room. Ask that this be a ritual to bring both you and your partner into your Highest Self, connect with your deepest truth, wisdom and capacity for unconditional love.
If you’re in a committed relationship you may choose to focus on something you intend to create together with your partner. For example, if you have children you may dedicate your ritual as an offering to be better parents. If there’s tension in a relationship or you just had a fight, ask that the love you make help you both soften, let go, forgive and reconnect. Perhaps, your intention is simply to explore, release, be wild, playful and have fun! Sex is alchemy—an opportunity to use the physical body to consciously shape-shift, change our emotional state and elevate our consciousness. Your sexual energy is the most powerful energy you own. Literally, the energy that creates life. It does not get any bigger or more potent than that. Setting an intention before sex is like placing a dam on this raw power—focusing and directing the flow to exactly the area of your life you choose.

6. Start Slowly
Slow down…. Sex is not a goal-oriented process. Our aim is to move out of the ego/thinking mind and into the transcendent realm of the Soul. Start with deep breathing, massaging, gentle touching, kissing and maintaining eye contact. The nervous system, physical body and heart need time to transition, relax, feel safe and open. Patience creates safety, ease and contentment. The ego mind is goal-oriented. When we are trying to get somewhere or get someone else somewhere it breeds tension, anxiety and constriction in the body.
When you notice your thinking mind ‘trying’, analyzing, judging or anticipating, return to the breath, relax, recommit to gazing and slow down. Holding each others’ gaze while making love breeds much more intimacy (and vulnerability) and connects the heart center to the second chakra or sacral center. Deep breathing expands and spreads out the intensity, desire and sensations of the sexual organs, building a bridge between our primal desires (sexual energy) and our heart—the emotional, sweet, tender, vulnerable, authentic space of who we are. Breath, gaze, sound and intention begin to align our actions with our heart.se7. Draw Energy Up Your Spine
Once you are making love, practice taking deeper breaths to expand your energy and draw it up the spine. When we move up the line through the chakras, we move into more refined aspects of Self. We are less obsessed with our individual, physical desires and getting our needs met and more attuned to our partner, expanding our awareness and serving others. Allow yourself to be “inspired.” The word “inspiration” literally means to breathe in—to be filled with breath. Allow Spirit to flow through you and be literally In-Spired or filled with Spirit when you’re in the process of making love. Visualize the flow of energy moving upwards through your belly, chest, back, outwards through your arms and eyes, and back to your partner again. This begins the tantric loop of contained energy that will fuel and “inspire” both of you.

8. Bring More Affection Daily
Make affection, kindness, tenderness and physical touch a priority on a daily basis. Sweetly caress your lover’s face. Get in the habit of regularly giving compliments. Hold their hand. Surprise your lover with a sweet kiss. Practice random, unsolicited acts of kindness. This stimulates the ‘mirror neurons’ making us feel loved, lovable and keeps us sensually connected. Do this for yourself, too! Self love is the foundation of all love.

Numerology 8 (2015) – Power to collectively choose Authentic Political Leader & Guatemala is free!!

Avvby Edith Boyer Telmer

Dear Friends,
I hope you have noticed the amazing, magnificent, WORLD CHANGING, events that happened this week on our planet. An incredible victory of powerful, peaceful, collective change regarding political influence and military power has been achieved by the consisting force of Guatemala’s people. A change, that expresses the qualities of the numerology number 8 – the number we are experiencing as human collective in 2015.
A brand new blueprint of divine will, guidance and faith is created for our world – available for all of us, to pick up and fulfill the call for authentically, truly serving leadership. Let’s choose people of authenticity, integrity, honesty, service now! This are qualities we need for a Golden Age of Aquarius!!

So “what happened” in Guatemala and why is it “so important”, you might ask.
On a 3d level that is quickly explained – the president of Guatemala, Otto Perez Molina, resigned at midnight of the September night 2nd to 3rd – only 3 days before the upcoming election, under the constant peaceful pressure of thousands of Guatemalans, sick of corruption, scandal and betrayal from their government. An incredible act of peaceful revolution in co-creation with the divine will for our collective!

And why is this such a WORLD CHANGING event??
To answer that question we have to take a little look at the energies the numerology year 8 is carrying within and the history of Guatemala .lightThe number 8 is the great Karmic equalizer. An energy that just as easily creates as it destroys. As the 8 comes knocking on our door, we can be sure to be taught the Universal Spiritual Law of Cause and Effect. The law expresses – ‘as you give so you shall receive’, or ‘you reap what you sow’.
The 8 balances the material and immaterial worlds. At its best, it is as spiritual as it is materialistic. And, it teaches us to see money as a tool, rather than an end-result. When the energy of the vibrational field 8 kicks in, it creates a powerful drive to succeed. It’s the ability to rise above aversions and adversity, the clarity for good decision-making and it usually achieves it’s goals. The frequency 8 is also a call for authentic leadership in integrity, that integrates a profound understanding of human nature. And this is where Guatemala comes into the picture!
Because another of the impressive qualities that are provided for us by the current energy dynamic are, learning through experience, true justice, patience, self-discipline, insights, spiritual consciousness, a desire for peace, a deep love for humanity and the need for world transformation.
Divine qualities that created human action! Action, that the Guatemalan people have shown to a level of beautiful self-mastery.

And this is so amazing, because Guatemala experienced an unspeakable brutal, from outside forces directed, soul destroying civil war, in the years 1960 – 1996 (both numerology years 7 – expressing spiritual growth, destruction of the old for the sake of new beginnings – in alignment with the energies for a needed step in evolution).
A war that left the population in deep drama and fear about the negative power and impact their military and police forces have shown. The pain and suffering of hundreds of thousands civil victims, most of them from the indigenous tribes of the Maya (the natives of the Republic of Guatemala), left the country in a state of deep trauma.
And September 2015, only 15 years later, this people have gathered the strength for a leap of faith. The unity to stand up for a peaceful change. AguaAnd please take the time to contemplate what an immense sigh of strength that was!! In the same physical space, where so many of their own had been slaughtered by military forces and their governments police, they overcame their fears, memories and emotional imprints, to create an energy field of freedom from their so resent past.
They held their space, demanded their human right for honesty in leadership, without the violent history repeating (on an energetic level, you only need to transform 51%  of the old energy, to shift a pattern. The other 49% are deep root searching and detail cleansing, within the different manifestations – created from the same energetic origin).
So the change has happened!! The first manifestation, created by the voice of people who desire a prosperous, peaceful and shared life on this planet, has happened!!!!

Go out and spread the word!!!! Celebrate the amazing work, done by the people of Guatemala!!! Send them your deepest blessings and gratitude for this amazing service to the human race. Burn fires and candles in their honor, create ceremonies to invite this peaceful force of transforming energies into your country or, give more love and strength to the frequency field, that now is awakening for everyone.
Or simple consider yourself lucky!!! For you have been part of this amazing, magical world, in this mind blowing time of change for the human collective, to witness the seeds of the New World unfold!!
Personally, I feel extraordinary blissful, proud and whole today, because the amazing magical landscape and the heart-centered people of Guatemala, are my souls home and the passion of my heart!
Wish you courage and peace in the heart, when you are called to stand up and be part of the next big step of our new collective creation!!!
Blessings Edith

Read tomorrow how you can be an active part of charging the newly created energy field of world peace, with your supportive thoughts and actions!!

Science Has Spoken: Group Meditation Literally Changes the World

TM12Dear Friends,
this is a perfect moment to talk about meditation – especially group meditation!! As you know we are still under the astrological influence of the Lion’s Gate 8/8/8 and the Venus retrograde phase. Both of this star constellation events carry intensively strong frequencies to the planet. These are frequencies designed to trigger most important human attachments like out money, our love relationships and our sexuality.
What better time than to gather and shift the collective perspective together!!
This article shows, that since more than 40 years, official studies prove the immense effect of group meditation on the collective human consciousness.
As they missed to inform us so far, my recommendation is “Let’s act like our own government in this world and call on the people to burn their light as bright as they can, to transform our collective awareness. To
ease the blow of war in their countries, the impact of violence and abuse.
Let’s start teaching in our schools, that the united mind force can ease the pain in the human collective.
Time to join in peaceful intention and powerful union – for a Golden Age of Aquarius for all Beings of the planet.

Blessed meditations and spirit journeys!

Edith

For those with a basic layman’s understanding of quantum physics, it may come as no surprise that the simple act of meditation can have quantum results that affect not only the meditator, but his or her surrounding community and the world as a whole.
In 1978 a study was conducted on a group of meditators and as a result the “Maharishi Effect” was discovered.  7,000 people meditated with the intention of having a positive effect on the surrounding city for 3 consecutive weeks.  As a result of their intentional and collective meditation efforts, the collective energy of the city was totally transformed.  In fact the meditation effort was so powerful it reduced global rates of crime, violent acts, and deaths by an average of 16%.  There was also a reduction in the amount of suicides and car accidents and this was with all variables being accounted for.  To top it off, there was a 72% reduction in terrorist activity during the meditation project.
Since this time more than 50 studies have been done to test the validity of the Maharishi Effect and the results have confirmed the direct impact global meditation has on the world.  These studies are so clearly indicative of the power of meditation to transform global energy patterns that results have been published in the Journal of Crime and Justice.

downloadAccording to peacefulwarriors.net, “For example, a day-by-day study of a two-month assembly in Israel during August and September of 1983 showed that, on days when the number of participants at a peace creating assembly was high, the intensity of an ongoing war in neighboring Lebanon decreased sharply. When the number of participants was high, war deaths in Lebanon dropped by 76%.
When the study was repeated in Wales, they got amazing results. In 1987 Merseyside had the third highest crime rate of the eleven largest Metropolitan Areas in England and Wales; by 1992 it had the lowest crime rate. 40% below levels predicted by the previous behavior of the series. There were 255,000 less crimes in Merseyside from 1988 to 1992 than would have been expected had Merseyside continued to follow the national crime trend.”
Results like these would lead us to see that personal meditation is powerful beyond what we even understand from our everyday perspective.  It helps to drive home the awe-inspiring fact that truly ‘thoughts are things’ and when we think a thought, it is a form of fine vibrational matter that is contributing to the creation of all that we experience.  These effects are powerful and life changing for individuals but when people come together and use intention to direct their mental energy towards a collective vision, the results are LITERALLY world-changing.
feurige-zen-moenche-in-der-hauptrolle-eines-buchesI think the claim can be plausibly made that the potential impact of this research exceeds that of any other ongoing social or psychological research program. It has survived a broader array of statistical tests than most research in the field of conflict resolution. This work and the theory that informs it deserve the most serious consideration by academics and policy makers alike.

10 Daily reminder to keep you happy and grounded

Man's leg sticking out of water

Man’s leg sticking out of water

In daily life we keep ourselves busy so that we stay on our toes and reach the goals we seek. It’s a good thing on principle to learn and grow, but sometimes we need a little break, a slow down of the busy energies. To remind ourselves of what is really important in life and of how valuable taking time for our friendships and beloved ones really is. If you spent daily a minimum of 10 minutes to clarify with yourself how wonderful you are, what a wonderful thing it is to be alive and what you hold to be most valuable for you, than you find more appreciation in your daily routine and things can happen with more ease.
Here are some things to try, to live by and remind yourself on a daily base. Also I encourage you to write down your own daily reminder, your very personal little list, and read them each morning before you start engaging with other people.

10 Daily Reminder

1. Know that you are powerful beyond your recognition. Be aware that your energy field is attracting things into your life. Stay positive and more positive things will come!

2. Your thoughts become reality. Keep your mind clear. Keep it clean from negativity. Have a prayer that helps you forgive what you see and stay positive yourself!

3. Forgiveness leads to high vibration. Forgiveness helps moving on from the things that are balast in life. Let go and create a new happy version of yourself.

4. Life is short, don’t sweat the small stuff. Let things go with ease. Train yourself not to hold on to the little annoyances!

5. Love yourself unconditionally. Train to thing loving and kind thoughts about yourself!

6. Every day is a new day. Start fresh and let go of the past. Every moment is a chance for a new beginning! USE IT!

index7. The darkest moments in life only make us stronger. Allow life sometimes to be hard and know, you will come out of the tunnel feeling stronger and clearer!

8. Believe in miracles. No matter if they happen to you or not! If you beliefe, they at least have a chance to appear in your life!

9. Be fearless in your convictions. Stand up for what you beliefe in and stick to it untill it manifests into your life!

10. Follow your own path. Feel who you really are and life that way!

Love and Blessings!! Edith

7 Sensational Herbs for Dream Recollection, Flying, & Spirit Communication

Dream Recollection

Our sleep offers a chance to temporarily free our selves from the physical reality that our body seems to constrain us to during the waking hours. That period of slumber is where dreams can come true, where we can escape physical grounding and have the ability to literally fly, travel anywhere we choose, and communicate with spirit guides. Check out these 7 herbs for dream recollection and dream enhancement and fill your dream journal up quickly!Xhosa Dream Root

1. Xhosa Dream Root – Vivid and Prophetic Dreams

You may find this herb labeled as it’s technical name Silene Capensis or as undlela zimhlophe, as it’s called by the Xhosa peoples of Africa. Noted as a ‘teaching plant’ and considered highly sacred, shamans traditionally use Xhosa dream root to promote lucid dream states in healers and other shamans during initiation ceremonies. If you aspire for more vivid and profound dreams or simply want to gain more universal insights from them, give this herb a shot – literally. You mix this in small amounts with water typically and consume it prior to sleeping. It also makes an interesting tasting tea but it can be bitter, so the ‘shot’ form is recommended.

 

Celastrus Paniculatus

2. Celastrus Paniculatus – The Elixir of Life

While this dreaming herb may sound like a spell Harry Potter would use, this amazing gift from Mother Nature packs a powerful punch and facilitates more than lucid dreams. It’s known for promoting longevity, sharpening the mind and memory, and it aids in concentration. This is perhaps why this herb is promoted to assist with ADD-type disorders, prevent epileptic seizures, and to aid in memory recollection in Alzheimer’s sufferers. Essentially, you benefit during the waking hours, and the herb keeps working while you sleep to fuel dream recollection!

 

Header-31C3. Blue Lotus – Mind Body Spirit Herb

A favorite used in yogic practices and meditation, the blue lotus is considered to be a source and possessor of the universe’s highest sacred energies in Hinduism. However, this relaxing herb promotes the mind body spirit connection as well as lucid dreaming states. This is also highly recommended for insomnia sufferers by many holistic healers. Typically consumed by smoking, in elixirs, and steeped in teas, if you have trouble dreaming or find yourself frequently waking up in dreams, blue lotus, aka Nymphaea Caerulea, may help.

 

Wild Asparagus Root

4. Wild Asparagus Root – Fly by Night

Reported to be SO effective at allowing one to fly in their dreams, many herbalists will advise against its use at all if you are not seeking to fly in your dream states. Also known as Asparagus Lucidus or Cochinensis, many Taoists use and recommend this herb for dream mobility, and reports have many users soaring through the skies and all across the universe and even into alternate realities and dimensions. Sweet and slightly bitter, most prefer to make a tea with this herb, and an additional ‘side-effect’ reported of regular wild asparagus root consumption is softer, more supple skin. Flying and skin benefits – ladies, this is YOUR dream herb!

 

African Dream Bean

5.  African Dream Bean – Master Spirit Connections

Known to promote euphoric lucid dreaming states, Entada Rheedii, or African Dream Bean is used by a number of tribes and cultures around Asia, Australia, and India. Often used in magic and rituals to proved users good luck, many find that their dreams are so powerful and vivid and declare that spirit communications are more accessible. This dreaming herb is typically dried and smoked, but some people get results by eating the bean’s internal seeds.

 

Mexican Tarragon

6. Mexican Tarragon – Grow a Garden of Herbs for Dreaming

Growing lovely flowering Mexican Tarragon can have you dreaming nightly and leave you with some eye candy in your herb garden. These Mexican Marigolds as they are also known, are an intrinsic part of Día de los Muertos festivities and are pretty commonly used as a spice. However, as a dreaming herb, one typically dries it for teas and smoking, but it can be burned as a bedtime incense to promote vivid images and dream recollection. Also revered for its anti-viral properties, these herbs for dreaming can be used in antiseptic solutions and essential oils.

 

Mugwort Herb

7. Mugwort – A Versatile Dreaming Herb

Also called Artemisa Vulgaris, this long time staple in Europe is superior for treating stomach ailments and eliminating parasitic invaders. This herb often helps one heal while dreaming. Some users report having darker dreams that reveal hidden insights, allowing them to better know themselves and mend from past hurts and experiences. Sweet and floral in scent, Mugwort is excellent for use in essential oils, teas, and for its aromatic qualities during ceremonies and meditation practices.

Top 7 Tips for How to Be Happy

why are happy people happy, finding happiness, find happiness, happiness tips, happiness quotesFinding Happiness went in search for the answer to the question “why are happy people happy?”

  • Put your trust in others and be trusted in return. Enjoy the sense of community and friendship that comes from this openness and faith in one another.

  • Work as part of a whole. See others as partners in your efforts. Unite your efforts with them to create a synergy more powerful than anything you could do alone.

  • Practice generosity and giving without expecting anything in return. Get involved with service opportunities and offer what you can to a greater cause.

  • Smile more– to family, to co-workers, to neighbors, to strangers– and watch it not only change how you feel but also how they feel too.

descarga3.) Live in the present.

  • Don’t replay negative events or worry about the future.

  • Accept and celebrate impermanence. Be grateful for your life, for each moment of every day. Observe the constant and natural flow of change that surrounds us, and your small yet important part in the natural, divine flow of life.

  • Observe yourself in the moment. Work on your reactions to outer circumstances and learn how to approach life harmoniously.

4.) Choose a healthy lifestyle.

  • Keep a daily routine. Wake up at the same time every morning, preferably early. Setting yourself to a natural biorhythm will make it easier to wake up and feel energized.

  • Get enough sleep. Proper sleep is linked to positive personality characteristics like optimism, improved self-esteem, and even problem solving.

  • Expose yourself to cold temperatures (especially first thing in the morning with perhaps a cold shower). It increases your circulation, helps minimize inflammation in the body, enhances weight loss, and energizes and invigorates you to start your day.

  • Turn off the TV. For every hour of TV you watch, you reduce 22 minutes of your life expectancy.

  • Eat properly. What you eat has a direct effect on your mood and energy levels. Eat plenty of organic, locally grown fruits and vegetables, nuts, whole grains, and dairy products that are both vitamin and mineral infused. Don’t overeat and try to practice healthy self-control.

  • Exercise daily to the point of sweating. It not only helps to purify the body, but also releases endorphins which help to prevent stress, relieve depression, and positively improve your mood.

  • Laugh more. Laughter is the best medicine. Like exercise, it releases endorphins that battle the negative effects of stress and promote a sense of well-being and joy.

  • Practice deep breathing and yoga. The body and mind are connected. Emotions affect the physical systems in the body, and the state of the body also affects the mind. By relaxing and releasing tension through the breath or yoga practice you feel more calm and centered throughout the day.

5.) Take care of your spirit.

  • Strive to always learn new things. Constantly expand your awareness and discover new ways of expressing your divine gifts.

  • Get creative. This will not only challenge you to learn new things, but will also help to keep your mind in a positive place. Practice living in the present moment and being a channel for the divine flow of creativity.

  • Practice meditation. Research has proven that even as little as 10 minutes of meditation a day can lead to physical changes in the brain that improve concentration and focus, calm the nervous system, and help you to become more kind and compassionate, and even more humorous. Then bring the joy and peace you receive from meditation into your daily life and activity.

  • Be honest. Telling the truth keeps you free inside, builds trust in relationships, and improves your will power and the ability to attract success.

  • Surrender to the Universe Divine and allow it to take care of the littlest things in life to the greatest and most important.

descarga (1)6. ) Be inwardly free.

  • Live minimally and simply. Often extravagant living brings more stress not more satisfaction.

  • De-clutter your home to de-clutter your mind. Clutter is an often unrecognized source of stress that promotes feelings of anxiety, frustration, distraction, and guilt. Feel good in your own home. Make it your sanctuary by keeping it clean, organized, and uplifting.

  • Go without certain things you think you need. Travel to new places where not everything is as easily accessible or readily available, and learn to appreciate what you have by expanding your world.

  • Take some time away from life’s complicated outer involvements to get to know your family, your neighbors, and your loved ones better; and to get to know yourself.

7.)  Reconnect with Nature.

  • Take some time every week to recharge your body battery. On the weekend, escape to nature or a place where you can feel peace in time for a fresh start to the work week.

  • Get outside whenever possible to breathe in the fresh air and feel the sunshine. Both of which studies have shown to have a positive effect on our health and our mood.

  • Take some time to be silent. Be silent and calm every night for at least 10 minutes (longer if possible) and again in the morning before rising. This will produce an unbreakable habit of inner happiness to help you meet challenges in life.

  • Observe the natural beauty that surrounds you and feel a sense of connection. Appreciate the details and miracles that can be found in nature.

Taking the Next Steps to Finding Happiness:

Ask yourself what makes you happy, and find ways to restructure your life so that you are able to do more of those things.

Then ask why you struggle to do the things that you know will make you happy. Why are you not yet happy? Why haven’t you taken the next steps to find your happiness? Why are you here? And what do you need to do to feel a sense of accomplishment in this life?

Visualize yourself happy, doing the things that will bring you inner and outer success in life and write down the things you need to do to create a Happiness Bucket List. Start with the little things you know you can do each day that will bring you joy. Then move on to accomplish greater and greater things on your happiness bucket list.

These are the 5 Biggest Regrets People Have On Their Deathbed

deathbedThere are a lot of things in life that are as individual as the 7 billion people on the planet. There are tons of soul relate experiences and personal human choices, that make the abundant human expression so colorful. And, there are some things that people, who chose to live society conform, have in common. When asked at their deathbed, at the heights of emotions – released by facing their mortality, what their biggest regrets are, these are the five most common answers:

1.) I wish I had been true to myself.
There are “laws of humanity”, represented by the Native American population of the planet. These laws are translations of the “Hermetic laws”, the natural ways of the universal forces. One of them states: Human kind needs to live in “AUTHENTICITY AND HONESTY IN THOUGHT, WORD AND ACTION”, in order to manifest the “Golden Age of Aquarius” or “Golden Age of Humanity”. In society we are asked to be conform with the collective need and simple fit in. The healthier path is, to be true to yourself!! To listen very well to your inner voice of purity, Only if we honor ourselves, our needs and abilities, can we live the life we desire to manifest. We live in a RESPONSIVE UNIVERSE!

 

2.) I wish I hadn’t worked so much.
Make sure you are challenging yourself to grow from inside! Develop a natural hunger for the transformational nature of your true self! If you have a feeling for natural growth that emerges from inside, it is easier to replace societies unhealthy habit of working to much. Don’t allow yourself to be entangled in the over productivity the outside demands! Rather seek to release their pressure and weight from your shoulders. Everything in life needs balance!!! Playfully produce and rest in equal amounts of time and, LOVE what you do with all your heart!!!

3.)I wish I had been brave in the face of my fears.
To often we allow our emotional pain body, the inner child or simple another timeline, to take over  and demand the outcome of a situation. Fear is best concord by PRESENCE! Be present when fear strikes! One way to do that is, to make yourself familiar with the transformational power of death. Don’t get me wrong, I am not talking about your precious physical body :-)! To study the nature of death will enable you to develop courage. This courage helps you to face your fears. Transformation and a sense of true freedom is a natural result.

4.) I wish I hadn’t neglected my friendships.
Human life circles a lot around how we experience our relationships. From the moment we appear as “the one” on Mother Earth, till the moment we die – our growth as human beings is deeply connected to the once we are in relation with. We have the capacity to create this relationships with other human beings but  also Healing Crystals, nature, animals, Ascended Masters, Angels and more. In all this diversity, it feels good to find some comfort and stability in long term friendships. Staying in relation challenges the human being to grow in forgiveness, compassion and expands our budget to give.

Tip: Make space in your busy calender to have time for friendships! Reserve a special time, on a particular weekday for interaction with your friends, and make sure you meet somebody you like, trust and enjoy hanging out with.

descarga (1)5.) I wish that I had allowed myself to be happier.
Decide from today on, to make conscious steps every day to increase the happiness level in your everyday life. Make time for meditation, for nature, for a walk on the beach or a run in the woods with your dog. Make sure you are laughing at least once the day!! If you are an Empath, spend enough time with children and animals. Their innocent and pure approach to life fills up the “happy account”! Spoil yourself with the conscious goal to listen to the desires of your soul to feel blissful, happy and free.

Native American Peace Pipe And The Sacred Meaning to Native Americans

A Native American peace pipe is often used in a spiritual ceremony. During the ceremony, Native Americans will smoke from the peace pipe and say a prayer to the four directions.
The Native American peace pipe is not restricted to being used only be Native Americans, but it is a spiritual thing and what it symbolizes must be respected by everyone attending the ceremony. Other types of pipes used in ceremonies were the medicine pipe and the war pipe. The Indian that carried the peace pipe was often allowed to pass through enemy territory out of respect. The war pipe had red feathers symbolizing blood and was smoked before going into battle.

What a Native American peace pipe is made of may vary from tribe to tribe. The Cherokee and Chickasaw tribes often used river clay that was formed into a bowl shape then “cooked” by putting it over a hot fire for the bowl of a peace pipe. Bluestone is hard quartzite that is greenish blue. Found in the Appalachian Mountains, it was used for the bowl of a pipe by the Cherokee, Creek, and Chickasaw as well. The Eastern, Western, Great Basin and Plains Tribes often used red pipestone (also known as catlinite) to make their Native American peace pipes. Another form of catlinite called blue pipestone is used in some Native American peace pipes. This type of stone can be found in South Dakota. The Plains tribes also use black pipestone while the Shoshone and Ute sometimes use green pipestone. The Uncompahgre Ute of central Colorado mine salmon alabaster to make their peace pipe bowls.

The Plains Indians often carried the Native American peace pipes in a bag called a pipe bundle. This bundle was decorated on the outside and also was used to carry the tobacco that would be used in the pipe. The Native Americans considered tobacco to be a sacred and powerful plant. If help was needed from the spirit world, sometimes tobacco would be offered in return for help. It was believed that the smoke from the Native American peace pipe carried prayers up to the heavens.

You can make your own peace pipe. The most desired material to make a peace pipe bowl from is the red pipestone. That is because the red pipestone is very easy to carve with a knife when it is first quarried. It then later turns hard after exposure to the air. There are many solutions as to what to use for the stem, which should be about 20 inches long. You can use a hollow reed or bamboo. You can also use a hollow bone like the leg bone of a deer or the wing bone of a large bird. If you do not have access to either of those, you can cut a stem from a tree (such as a maple, willow, or poplar). After you split it down the middle, dig out the inside and glue the pieces back together. It should join easily so the split is hidden.

The ownership of the news media in the U.S. has been concentrated in the hands of just 6 incredibly powerful media corporations which control most of what we watch, hear and read every day.

media_consolidationThe 6 corporations that collectively control U.S. media today are Time Warner, Walt Disney, Viacom, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, CBS Corporation and NBC Universal. Internationally, there are also other players including Bertelsmann AG and Sony. They own
and many successful websites.
Although it seems many do not care about who controls their media, it greatly impacts their view of the world and major events in it.
The average American watches 153 hours of television a month.  Television is essentially proven to have an actual impact on your brain and thinking: they do not call it “programming” for no reason.

Fortunately, according to a poll released by Gallup last year, the majority of Americans (55%) still have little to no faith in the mainstream media, up slightly from 2012’s all-time high (60%).

Checkout this effective graphic, designed by Jason at Frugal Dad, showing how almost all media comes from only six sources that originated from 50 companies back in 1983. Those companies controlled the vast majority of all news media in the United States in that time, and today, in much of the world! Also, keep in mind, a few changes have happened since this infographic was created, they are outlined at the bottom.

media-infographic

NOTE: This infographic was created in 2011 and is not factoring in some key transactions. GE is no longer the majority shareholder for NBC or Comcast, thus Comcast has become the 6th. Time Warner also doesn’t own the majority of AOL, so Huffington Post isn’t directly affiliated with them.

But the fact that very few companies own so much demonstrates the need for independent sources, and to some extent a crowd-sourcing of news. In the end, the responsibility falls on each of us to network, learn and inform others, and while doing so fact-check whatever we read or hear.
