Meditation removes stress

Sometimes when I am facing too much stress from work, I will meditate. Meditation is really a great energy healing method that is just best for people who live with a great deal of tension from work or other areas of their lives.

All too often, we are imprisoned by destructive thoughts. Meditation can help us calm down and understand yourself better spiritually. Meditation is not a new spiritual improvement technique; it has been around for around 5,000 years. And it has rewarded me with less worry and much more energy.

Damaging thoughts can definitely hold you imprisoned if you put attention on them; so through meditation, you can take control of your mind!

How let show you Maria Duval's recommended technique to meditate. It is very simple actually:
  • Sit or kneel comfortably. Preferably in a quiet room.You may like to play some meditative music in the background.

  • The hands are loose and open with the palms up, one atop the other and thumbs lightly touching.

  • Head is upright. Eyes may be closed or open. If open they should focus on your hands or a spot nearby.

  • Count upwards to 10 on each exhale. Breathe in a relaxed and natural way. Then begin again at one and repeat. Continue to breathe naturally.

  • Continue for 10 to 15 minutes.

Try to commit at least 10 minutes each day, if possible.

Soon you may reap the benefits of your consistency as in:
  • more energy

  • improved quality of sleep

  • decreased anxiety

  • improved concentration

  • improved visual acuity

  • increased alertness and heightened immunity
Meditation also helps for those having hypertension, headaches and many medical benefits.

All the best :)

Work out your right brain for better creativity

Let me teach a way to improve your mind clarity.

Too often, we are using just one side of the brain, mainly the left brain which processes the logical and rational decisions we made. In the end, our right brains are left heavily under used. This means a lot of energies and spiritual frontiers are not explored due to this under usage.

Maria Duval suggests that we use our right brain more! Be creative and let your imagination flow!

We can try painting, music making, handicraft,or sculpting in our spare times so that we give our right brain some much needed workout. This workout will allow our dominant left to "retire" to the background for a while and allow allow our inner self to show up more.

There are many other backing your car, catching a baseball, shooting a basket, lining up that picture on the wall, decorating your home, singing in the shower, daydreaming, tossing a candy wrapper in the waste basket, matching clothes, calligraphy...that's ten ways for you to start right brain buzzing!

To check out what is the fuss about right brain, check this link out. Right brain.

In the end of the day, I am surprised that by utilizing right brain more, I am actually getting more creative!

Horoscopes and Astrology

Horoscopes are ubiquitous and they can be found in papers, magazines, books and in many astrology and spirituality websites. What is Horoscope?

Horoscopes are astrological chart and readings used to predict future based on the basis of the person's date of birth which coincides with the celestial star signs. Astrologers have divided the heavens into 12 sections, each thought to be ruled by a different sign of the zodiac belt through which the sun, moon, and planets move in 12 fixed positions called houses. I am not sure how accurate it is nowadays because I have seen different interpretations of my own horoscope being different in several prints. So it is really sometimes inaccurate.

On the other hand, I have seen some very accurate horoscopes and I am very impressed by its accuracy. There could have some basis behind it but it can be uncanny how right horoscopes could be.

On the whole, astrology does provide incredible keys to understanding, but it doesn't necessarily provide clear and simplistic answers to any problems with which you may be dealing. Horoscope may give you some insights and understanding of the reasons why you behave as you do.

The place of psychics and mediums in today's world

Personally I think that psychics and mediums allow us as humans to reach out to the invisible spiritual world out there that really exists yet we do not have that ability to freely reach out to this mysterious axis. This axis is there, but we can't reach it as it is beyond our normal five senses.

Called the "ether realm" by Maria Duval, it is filled with spirits and souls but it comes down to our physical world through intimate interaction with our physical bodies.

This interaction is very subtle to the extent that many people do not believe in it. That is why the ability for a psychic or spiritualist to discern the intent and motives of these forces has made them figures to be either respected, questioned or even hated. Rational humans just do not believe in all these and have labeled them as cheats or charlatans.

I feel that to really answer our innate question of "what is the meaning of life", we have to reach out to the spiritual world. You may not be questioning yourself this question now, but most of us will, one day.

That's why I like spirituality topics as I question my existence in this increasingly demanding world. Through spirituality, I gain more insight into life and spiritual ways of creating wealth and luck. Basically, many successful men have been spiritual in the way they are creating their wealth.

Life is full of mystical and magical experiences why risk losing out on any of them because you were to jaded to try and understand the true factors influencing the world we live in.

Why not pull back your disbelief and set aside your social norms to psychic readings? You may just find the answers you have been seeking that seem to elude you no matter how hard you try to find them. You may just find out how the spiritual realm is affecting your life.

Tarot cards

tarot cards Maria DuvalPsychic Maria Duval is a great tarot reader. Through her books, I have learned something about tarot too!

If you are using the tarot cards to seek for a divine reading, focus on the question really well and do not think that the tarot is designed to answer yes or no. Ask sensible questions. The answers revealed only serve as a guideline or advice. One should never take it as a life and death issue.

Well, some people do feel that tarot cards have helped them through some bad situations, and I agree that do happen. Some people need guidance just for a short while when gathering thoughts as there are different interpretations to the card shown, depending on the "power" of the reader. Anyone can be a reader, if you know the meaning behind and how to explain it.

As I said, tarot cards cannot give you a direction in life. The deck of cards cannot solve your financial woes or your luckless love life. They cannot answer whether you will get married or have a baby on any given day or date.

Despite this limitations, many still turn to tarot for divinations as this is a centuries old practice and people like to be assured in their life when bad patches happen. That's why tarot serves many a purpose in life and journey.
