What are Binaural Beats

What are Binaural Beats

featured, Spiritual Awakening
Binaural Beats are a type of sound-wave therapy also known as brain entertainment. Binauarl beats are used to help such issues as headaches, concentration, hormonal development and meditation.   Binaural beats range from the lowest to the highest hertz (Hz) that are audible on either side of the auditory hemisphere of the brain. The science behind the beats is that they have different frequencies in the left ear and right ear for our brain to adjust to for the target tone. Other forms of Brain Entrainment: Isocronic Beats - These are the pure tones. For example one tone of 243(Hz) will be one tone, almost as if you are taking a hearing test at the doctor office. These can be beneficial for things that we do on a regular basis since it does not take the mind much effort to process

PLATO'S ALLEGORY OF THE CAVE (FROM PLATO'S "REPUBLIC", BOOK VII, 514a-c to 521a-e)[ Note : interpolated comments in green ] And now, I said, let me show in a figure how far our nature is enlightened or unenlightened : -- "Behold ! , human beings living in a underground den, which has a mouth open towards the light and reaching all along the den. Here they have been from their childhood, and have their legs and necks chained so that they cannot move, and can only see before them, being prevented by the chains from turning round their heads. Above and behind them a fire is blazing at a distance, and between the fire and the prisoners there is a raised way; and you will see, if you look, a low wall built along the way, like the screen which marionette players have in front of them, over whic...
What is Spiritual Balance and Life Balance?

What is Spiritual Balance and Life Balance?

Ancient Wisdom, featured
  Spiritual balance and life balance are an understanding of being content in your material world as well as your spiritual world. Think of this balance as an integer chart, if you are too far too the left then you are buried in material, if you are too far to the right then you're head may be in the clouds and are unable to complete your duty in this world. 1. Mind, Body and Soul Spiritual balance - to understand how to achieve spiritual balance in life, we have to first understand what elements in ourselves we have to work on to get to that place. Remember balance is found within not without. Our entire presence on this earth is made up of these three simple things. Mind, body and soul. Think of it like this, It is our body which feeds our mind. So therefore we have to trea

featured, Spiritual Awakening
What is a Narcissist? Narcissist personality disorder (NPD) or a narcissist,  is someone who believes that they have a sense of entitlement over anyone and everyone whether they be in their life or not.

Dealing With People That No Longer Serve You

"You will come to a place in your life where you realize that that which you have been should not have existed and those that are in your life no longer serve you. " ~The Hermit Bo You do not have any attachments I know that it is hard. But just remember this world is an illusion and any attachments that you have in this world that brings you to a bad place and does not allow your spiritual growth should not be of that which is attached to you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVJyf5yKxuo "Attachment leads to jealousy, the shadow of greed that is. Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose" ~ Yoda Yoda says it best and I am a little partial to Yoda. As a young Muslim growing up a lot of his wisdom seemed to be straight from the Quran, I'm not sure if that was int...
I Think I Am a Starseed, is That Weird?

I Think I Am a Starseed, is That Weird?

Ancient Wisdom, featured
Starseed is only a term to understand the origin of a soul. We are all from somewhere and not all starseeds are the same. So this and any other explanations out there can define any one of us. YOu know who you are... From a very early age I've always felt that I was different. I felt as if the world was a dream and I was just passing through it. I was also always more connected with spiritual than the material world. My connection with God was always there as well. My parents converted to Islam when I was 5 and it was very easy for me to understand God as an infinite "thing". It is hard to put in words that God was not a person place or thing and that even energy was created by God. medianet_width = "728"; medianet_height = "90"; medianet_crid = "911743742"; median...

Why Seeking Perfection in Others is Hurting Your Spiritual Development

Why Seeking Perfection in Others is Hurting Your Spiritual Development

featured, Spiritual Awakening
Perfection is an unobtainable goal that we should be seeking in ourselves and not in others. There is an anecdote to the above quote that I came up with. I was at the park with my little beam of sunshine and I was speaking with a single mom. After talking about relationships and breakups, she reveled to me that she was just trying and wanting to find the perfect man. I thought to myself, "Now why would you do that to yourself"? No one is perfect, that's just plain human. I also told her she would be much better off seeking perfection in herself, so that she can receive that perfect mate. When we seek perfection in others we tend to set ourselves up for failure because humans have hundreds of personality traits, qualities and idiosyncrasies of which we may not be privy to all of the...

Spiritual Parenting, Your Spiritual Journey and Theirs

Spiritual Parenting can be the most difficult thing for a parent to have to deal with. No matter what religion, background, or denomination you are part of, spirituality in the secular world is the most difficult thing that you as a parent will have to deal with. I grew up with the understanding that the mother is the most important part of the family, but dad is the most listened to. We had strong family values in my household. We didn't have the best life. Growing up in Compton, California in the late 80's was very difficult. Top that off with poverty, a mother who worked her fingers to the bones and a father that was schizophrenic and you had a recipe for disaster. The only thing that helped us through everything was faith and spirituality. My mother was the bread winner, the sour...
