Whether you’re Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, atheist, or some other-ist, there are truths in all religions and philosophies; one only has to expose oneself to them, keep an open mind and an open eye.
“The world is a reflection of who we are and if we don’t like the reflection it doesn’t help to break the mirror” — Deepak Chopra

A couple years ago, I read Christian D. Larson’s The Ideal Made Real (1912). It’s about purposely creating a life—the ideal life—in your mind first, and through conscious focus, making that ideal life become your world, your reality.
When I started reading Dr. Joe Dispenza’s You Are the Placebo (released April, 2014), I was immediately reminded of Larson’s book. There is one huge and significant difference, though. Dispenza cites source upon source to back up what he writes about. Larson did not have this luxury when he published his book; there just weren’t that many studies going on that he could cite for proof to back up what he was espousing.
Here’s the short version…
Treat your subconscious mind like an unruly, stubborn child by telling it (kindly) what you want and it will carry out your “orders.” This post is about remembering your dreams (for those who have lost this “ability”). By telling your subconscious that you want to remember your dreams, you will remember them. There is a catch, though: you must be very specific in your wording and what you want from your subconscious.
The Power of Meditation and How It Affects Our Brains
By Belle Beth Cooper
Ever since my dad tried to convince me to meditate when I was about 12, I’ve been fairly skeptical of this practice. It always seemed to be so vague and hard to understand that I just decided it wasn’t for me.
Most of you have probably heard this story, in one variation or another, but I think it’s worth keeping in the back of the mind.
I heard a slightly different version of this story about 15 years ago and it has never left me. Of course, I can’t say I really focused on the theme of it in my life to any great extent, but it’s been filed away there.
Having a bad start to the day? Something happen that’s brought you down? Do you need an emotional boost?
Here’s a surefire way to get out of a mental/emotional rut.
Things happen to all of us all the time. On the whole, most of it’s in the neutral column between good and bad. Some things are incredibly great and make us jump for joy, while there are those few things that really tend to pull us down.
If you can’t avoid being pulled down and find your mood, your emotional state, is down in the dumps, pull yourself out as soon as you can. If you don’t, you may find you carry that mood with you for some time. Not only will it affect how your day goes, but it can affect others who you would not intentionally want to involve.
Moods are like viruses: they can be catchy if you’re not on your guard. Have you ever been around someone who was in an awful mood and, though it may or may not have influenced you, you’ve seen other people’s moods change as a result?
