Camping provides a wide number of benefits, but most surprisingly is that it can actually drastically improve your sexual activity. A study by OLPRO involving 500 couples who went camping found that 80 per cent of couples said that their sex life increased by double, and over 85 per cent said that less distractions and decreased stress led to a better time between the sheets.
While I’m very familiar with many spiritual strategies, in the face of this very unpleasant and increasingly demanding stress, I took my dilemma to the most reliable spiritual resource I’ve ever met, the Akashic Records accessed by the Pathway Prayer Process©. Probing this amazing realm to uncover the source of the problem over a series of sacred meetings, I asked questions so potent I could feel them in my bones. “Why am I so stressed? What is keeping me stuck? How can I be both peaceful and productive?”

There’s so much confusion regarding health information in the media. How do you determine which advice to follow and what to take with a grain of salt? Dr. Malcolm Kendrick wrote the book Doctoring Data: How to Sort Out Medical Advice from Medical Nonsense to help you answer that question. His fabulous book will teach you how to identify common research flaws and help you sift through misleading and meaningless data. An important resource if you are a serious student of health. Dr. Kendrick has also written The Great Cholesterol Con: The Truth about What Really Causes Heart Disease and How to Avoid It, which is another great book. Like me, he’s a trained family doctor whose journey led him to abandon much of what’s promoted in conventional medicine.

S0 (Ben Davidson) presents evidence that while climate change is definitely happening on Earth (and other planets in the solar system), the global warming hypothesis is incorrect. Global warming models/predictions have been an abject failure for 20 years, and yet the IPCC claims ever-higher certainty? How does this happen and what comes next?
Often when we show tiny homes, readers point out that designers should learn from boats, where people have been organizing small spaces forever. Now Bratislava based Nice Architects introduce the very nice and very boat-like Ecocapsule, ” a low-energy house packed into a compact form. It merges an energy efficient shape, compact volume and off-grid capabilities with the luxuries of a warm bed, running water and a hot meal.”

Put simply, the canopy utilizes the latest advancements in biomass production to generate beneficial compounds for urban spaces. In this case, the canopy harnesses the natural activity of micro-algae to generate oxygen, producing an amount equivalent to what would naturally be generated in 400,000 square feet of natural woodland, according to the company.

The Casimir Effect is a proven example of free energy. The Casimir Effect illustrates zero point or vacuum state energy, which predicts that two metal plates close together attract each other due to an imbalance in the quantum fluctuations. The implications of this are far reaching and have been written about extensively within theoretical physics by researchers all over the world. Today, we are beginning to see that these concepts are not just theoretical, but instead very practical and simply very suppressed.

What is mindset science? Think of it this way: The way that you think about something can actually transform the effect that it has on you. Health psychologist Kelly McGonigal, author of the new book “The Upside of Stress,” talks about mindset science. McGonigal explains how positive thinking can put you on the road to positive outcomes while negative thoughts run the risk of becoming self-fulfilling prophecies.
Dealing with the death of a loved one can be difficult. As a medium who communicates with spirits, I know that the smallest message or sign from a loved one in spirit can mean the world. Your loved ones in spirit have several ways to get messages to you, but their messages are subtle, so you may overlook or discount them if you don’t know what to look for. Here are 4 common ways your loved ones in spirit may be trying to contact you:
The week begins with the Sun and Mercury and Mars, continuing their journey in the sign of Gemini
We are seeing the fundamentals of science; mass, time, space and energy make way for Consciousness in terms of creation, force, movement, design, and probability. With the integration of Consciousness into the scientific world, many new breakthroughs have recently been made in relatively new branches of science including Quantum Mechanics and Epigenetics. In Quantum Mechanics, scientists have recently proven entanglement via a single particle and have simultaneously violated Einstein’s Steering inequality, proving that quantum “steering” is in fact possible. In Epigenetics, scientists have proven that we are not victims of our genes as DNA cannot turn itself on or off; it does so only by means of being told to do so by sensors within the cell which react on factors from its environment.
Do you struggle with overthinking or emotional chaos? Change your experience with this quick how-to from Lee Harris!
As the week begins, the Sun is still in Taurus. However on Tuesday, Mercury begins a retrograde in its home zone of Gemini
Taurus typically carries us into Mid-spring. She is ruled by Venus, the Goddess planet, and as a fixed earth sign, she represents all the physical blessings that abound during this time of year. She is the sweetness, the auspiciousness of life and light. She is fertile and fecund, full and flowing, beautiful and bountiful.
…the SoHo-based social media site Tsu has signed up 3.5 million users in six months and hopes to close a Series B funding round within weeks. What explains this counter-market progress and investor attention? The answer is commerce and investing, not social media. Tsu pays users a cut of the site’s ad revenue based on how many people view its posts. The pitch to newcomers is compelling enough: Facebook is making billions selling ads against your own content and your own network of friends, but they’re not sharing it with you. We do.

Individuals can transmute from dull repetitive ‘thought’ into ascended golden thinking, but as our minds are freed, one at a time, we ultimately find that our broader society is embedded with a series of norms and structures – of Matrices and Caves – that perpetuate false imagery, preserving the status quo from the ‘threat’ of individual thinking.

The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has received government permission to field test its HELLADS laser weapon system. “The technical hurdles were daunting, but it is extremely gratifying to have produced a new type of solid-state laser with unprecedented power and beam quality for its size,” DARPA program manager Rich Bagnell said in a statement cited by the agency’s website… It is intended for use as a protection system for aircraft…The statement adds however, that the laser could also be used for attack: “Laser weapon systems provide additional capability for offensive missions as well—adding precise targeting with low probability of collateral damage.”

As the gap between the rich and poor in the U.S. continues to grow with more and more wealth being held by fewer people, 63 percent of Americans say that this distribution is unfair, according to a new Gallup survey published Monday. Additionally, 52 percent of respondents say that the problem of inequality should be solved with “heavy taxes on the rich,” a proportion that has risen from 45 percent since Gallup first began asking that question in 1998.
Paul Tudor Jones II loves capitalism. It’s a system that has done well by him over the last few decades, and he has no desire to do away with it. Nonetheless, he sees a widening gap between the “haves” and “have nots” as our country’s laser focus on profits widens the gap between those who own the companies and those who work for them.
