In celebration, honor and recognition of Independence Day, it seemed appropriate to write about none other than “freedom”. Now, freedom is a concept that can mean many different things to many different people. One might consider freedom only in the context of nations, war, government and politics. Others might narrow it down a bit further to a persona level and say that freedom is in fact a state of mind and that true freedom involves taking full responsibility over the choices you make in your life.
Many parents come to me for help with young adult children who seem unable to move out into the grown-up world. Usually they want me to meet with the young person, hoping that I will magically provide the missing motivation. Instead, I ask to meet with the parents first. They often have more power than they realize to make a difference.
If there were a magic pill that led to a 22 percent lower mortality rate and higher levels of self-esteem and happiness, would you try it?
“Act as if.” It’s a great line from the movie “Boiler Room” (and if you haven’t seen that movie before, check it out because it’s great!). It’s also a great line to remember when you are trying to use the Law of Attraction to bring you what you want.
Allow me to present an important distinction that you must become aware of if you wish to develop your intuition to profound levels. Appearances can be deceiving. A true master of intuition knows how to suspend judgment and see behind the surfaces of people, places and circumstances. He can sense the true nature of things, that which is their essence.
The Chinese Body Clock is based on Chinese medicine and the body organ Qi(energy) cycle. It’s the idea that there is a cyclic flow of energy through the body that moves in two hour intervals through the various organ systems.
The assumption that fructose (including high fructose corn syrup) was any better, was dead wrong. The liver converts fructose directly into fat. People who consume lots of fructose end up developing high blood pressure, suffering from obesity, and developing insulin resistance, among other health issues. Doctors usually call this metabolic syndrome – and for some time, they couldn’t figure out why so many Americans were so overweight.
The completion of the encyclopedia after two years of intense work, compiled by five shamans with assistance from conservation group Acaté, is a historical and critical first step towards mitigating existential threats to healing wisdom and self-sufficiency. It is a true shamanic encyclopedia, fully written and edited by indigenous shamans, the first to our knowledge of its kind and scope. The ultimate objective of the initiative is the integration and enhancement of ‘Western’ health delivery with traditional practices. Tribes in the region depend upon rainforest for survival but this relationship extends beyond a utilitarian reliance; there is a spiritual link to the forest, a sense of interconnectivity. For the broader conservation movement, we know that there is a strong correlation between intact ecosystems and regions of indigenous inhabitation, making strengthening of indigenous culture one of the most effective ways to protect large areas of rainforest.
It’s important to eat organic when you can as organic food is less likely to contain contaminates & non-food products. But the good thing about the foods listed is that they are a lot less well known & less in demand so are a lot more likely to be organic.

Gunpowder is the key ingredient, but as adjunct professor of chemistry John Conkling from Washington College in the US explains in this video, without chemistry, you wouldn’t have burning mixtures and without these you simply can’t have fireworks.
Stargazers and astronomers were treated to a stunning cosmic vision last night when the planets of Venus and Jupiter appeared to pass within a fraction of each other in what is known as a ‘celestial conjunction.’
Tonight (June 30), the two brightest planets Venus and Jupiter will appear so close in the sky that they will be seen like a single super bright star, which some astronomy-lovers say resembles the biblical ‘Star of Bethlehem’.
June 30, 2015 will officially be a bit longer than usual because an extra second, or ‘leap’ second, will be added. Here’s why…
The Martin Jetpack is set for commercial launch in 2016, and its creators believe it could transform emergency response and search-and-rescue missions. The vehicle’s latest prototype, the P12, went on display at the Paris Airshow last week, with commercial production set to begin soon. The Martin Jetpack uses ducted fans instead of jet propulsion, and comes with a top speed of 46 miles per hour. It can fly for more than half an hour, and at up to 1,000 metres, or 3,300 feet, in the air. The cost is expected to be around $150,000. See it for yourself in the video below:

Vedic Astrology for July 2015: In the month of July both benefic planets, Venus and Jupiter, transit the last few degrees of Cancer, before they move into the sign of Leo. First, Venus will transit into the sign of Leo, late on July 4, 2015, followed by Jupiter shifting into Leo the evening of July 13, 2015. As these two planets shift signs, they will be going from a water sign (Cancer) to a fire sign (Leo), through the critical degrees called gandanta (29 degrees Cancer to 1 degree Leo). Gandanta means “knot,” and when planets pass through these junctures we are given opportunities for deep soul growth.
There are many differences between Vedic Astrology and the more commonly known system practiced here in the West – Tropical Astrology, also known as Western Astrology. Vedic Astrology has been practiced for many thousands of years. The earliest writings can be found in the Vedas – the ancient spiritual texts of the Hindus and the oldest books in existence, written 5,000 – 8,000 years ago. Its Indian name is Jyotish, which means “science of light” because it is the science of observing the celestial bodies that reflect their energy and light upon the Earth, therefore influencing the course of human events.
If you’ve ever experienced that gut feeling that someone was about to call and in that moment they did, or that something terrible happened to a loved one, only to find out they were involved in an accident at the same time you thought of them, then you have (on a spiritual level) experienced Entanglement.
AT&T hit with $100mn fine after slowing down ‘unlimited’ data The Federal Communications Commission hit telecommunications giant AT&T with a $100 million fine, the largest it has ever levied, for slowing down the internet speeds of customers with “unlimited” data plans. The company said it will fight the fine. Thousands of AT&T customers complained to the FCC about the issue, saying they noticed that when they had used up a certain amount of data watching movies or browsing the web, AT&T “throttled” their internet speeds so that they were much slower than normal. Millions of AT&T customers were affected by the practice. In a press release announcing the fine, the FCC said the company “severely slowed down the data speeds for customers with unlimited data plans” and “failed to adequately notify its customers that they could receive speeds slower than the normal network speeds AT&T advertised.”

What happens when Facebook begins deciding what news stories we get to see? Once the algorithms Facebook uses to create targeted ads are applied to the stories it feeds us, how will that affect our perceptions? Do we really want Facebook spoon-feeding us the news it sees “fit to print”?
“We Are Many” is a film that reminds us exactly why Bush, Blair, and others in their administrations should stand trial for the war on Iraq. Through interviews with an impressive array of politicians, international lawyers, anti-war activists, journalists, former allied service members and a host of high-profile figures and celebrities, Amirani’s new documentary film tells the story of Bush and Blair’s great lie, reminding its viewers of the disaster unleashed on the Middle East that is reverberating still.

The blog, goldseek.com, recently published a report on a Freedom of Information Act request they recently filed with the US government. They were seeking seven reports from federal audits of the gold at Fort Knox. The government’s response? They can’t find those reports – even though they reference those reports as evidence of the gold stored at Fort Knox in a number of ways.
These shadow banks are largely unregulated, but governments around the world have been extremely hesitant to crack down on them because these nonbank lenders have helped fuel economic growth. But in the end, we will all likely pay a very great price for allowing these exceedingly reckless financial institutions to run wild.
Harley Schlanger: “This is the worst case scenario for these Bankers. The reality is there is something new on the horizon. A new financial system outside of the control of what George Herbert Walker Bush called the New World Order. It’s fragile, but it’s coming into existence. And this is what the Banksters fear more than anything else.”

Henry David Thoreau, the American author, poet, and philosopher (among other things) who wrote the classic essay “Walden” is somewhat of a poster boy for many in the tiny house movement. Thoreau himself lived in a tiny house (a 10′ × 15′ English style cottage) near Walden ponds. He spent more than two years living is this small cottage, contemplating life and turning conventional living on its head.

People like to talk nasty about Hugh Grant, Monsanto’s CEO, and obviously a shareholder. The same goes for Bill Gates. He purportedly owns millions of shares of Monsanto stock as well. But who are the real owners of Monsanto? The answer might be shocking. The real owners of Monsanto stock are institutions, and people who hide behind those institutions, not individuals like Gates and Grant. According to multiple sources, five investment funds are the top shareholders in Monsanto, with the Vanguard Group, Inc. at the top.
