The Benefits Of Alpha

Basically what happens when you start practicing alpha is that you open up your right brain faculties, which haven´t had too much use since the days of your childhood, when you were free to use your imagination a lot. Once you reactivate these channels they tend to remain open... all day long. Ith is rather like doing a workout in the gymnasium. While you are working out you burn off calories and strange things is you keep burning them off for some hours after you´ve finished the workout.

Ching Tso - Chinese Meditation

The Chinese term for meditation is 'Ching Tso', which translated means 'sitting still with a peaceful mind'. Meditation is the training of the inner senses of the body and mind. It is as rigorous as the training undertaken by an athlete or an artist. By helping us to think clearly and concentrate fully, Ching Tso enables us to commune totally with our God, without distracting or artifical thoughts. The highest and most advanced goal of meditation is to gain 'enlightenment'. We want to go beyond the limitations of our knowledge and our three-dimensional view of the world. Jou Tsung-Hwa

Plants For The New Gardener

Gardening is a hobby that can be fun and practical at the same time. A plant can beautify a space, put food on the table, and improve the environment. But some plants are harder to grow than others, and often a new gardener is overwhelmed with the choices and terminology. Gardening magazines and guides don't often help, either, with their layout plans and massive showpiece gardens.

Good Things Come To Those Who Ask For Them! by Marsha Egan

Marsha Egan's Keynote Speech: Asking for things can be seen quite often in a negative light. Many people don't like to ask for help, they think it may seem needy, greedy, or weak. Of course, the reality is that asking for help isn't a sign of weakness - but exactly the opposite. It's a sign of strength, and of success.

There are many ways in which asking people for help can benefit us, such as asking for referrals, asking for assistance with aspects of our work that we're maybe not as experienced in as our primary role, or asking for feedback.

The fact is that people like being asked for help, provided it's done in a polite way and at an appropriate time. Asking someone for feedback shows that you respect the person's opinion, and asking for assistance shows that you value someone's skills and trust their abilities. Asking people for help in terms of a referral or introduction to someone is also entirely acceptable behavior - and could be seen that you are acknowledging that they are well-connected.

Spiritual Growth and the Gift of Confusion

Although it is often distressing to feel confused about what next step to take on your spiritual growth path, the mental state of confusion is actually a higher state of consciousness than being certain of your beliefs and spiritual principles. Feeling confused or "lost" is actually a signal that you are about to be given the opportunity to take a big leap forward in your spiritual growth. That is, you are being given the opportunity to become even more of your Authentic Self, living your life On Purpose, while experiencing more Joy and less struggle in your life.

How Does Aromatherapy Work? by Anadi Taylor

What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is a holistic alternative medicine that uses plant extracts, known as essential oils, to alter a persons mind, mood, cognitive function or health. Aromatherapy literally means "treatment using scents". The essential oils are aromatic essences extracted from plants, flowers, trees, fruits, bark, grasses and seeds with distinctive therapeutic, psychological, and physiological properties which improve health and prevent illness. There are about 150 essential oils. Most of these oils have antiseptic properties; some are antiviral, anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, antidepressant and expectorant. Other properties of the essential oils which are taken advantage of in aromatherapy are stimulation, relaxation, digestion improvement, and their diuretic properties. To get the maximum benefit from essential oils they should be made from natural, pure, raw materials. Synthetically made oils do not work.
