Spread your magic around....
This Universe is a shapeable Universe, it responds to our thoughts, imaginations and emotion. We, 'the subject,' are a powerful creative center, the mental energy that emanets from our thoughts and emotions creates the physical reality that we desire. We are the creator of our own reality..

We are the self expression of our subconscious mind. We are a cluster of energy, so is everything else. The energy cluster that is constantly in motion, moving and changing to form new configuration and intelligently maintaining its form. This is the consciosness that keeps the energy in that particular form.

Consciousness is the mind, the mind is reality, this mind is the creator. This Universe is the collective consciousness of its people. By learning how to guide and focus our thought patterns we all can become an effective co-creator and live successfully with the matter and events of our outer physical world. We all participate in creating the exterior world that we live and this is essential for our growth. The better our abilities at creating reality, the better we are at solving problems, creating abundance and able to live in perfect harmony with this Universe. There is nothing paranormal in this Universe except our limited understanding of the Universe around us...

Psycophysics views all matters including human body as a bio-electro magnectic that vibrates in waves with specific oscillation frequencies. Electro- myograth, a devise that measures electrical activities of muscles, was discovered by Dr. Hunt. The science of Kirlian Photography is designed to detect human body's electro-magnetic field also known as human Aura. This devise is able to detect minute electrical, magnetic and optical changes in an object's environment. The color of human aura enable scientist to analyse a person's current physical, mental and emotional health.

The cosmo has certain forms of wave energy and all living things have their own unique wave energy. When this wave rythm is damaged by various factors of environment, polutions, stress and worries, the cells of our body sends out signals called disease. Human brain emitts certain electro-magnetic impulse, the brain waves alfa, beta, theta and delta waves. Human brain has two main parts the pelio cortex, which controls vital body fuctions and the neo cortex, which control thinking and cognition.

Mind and body are two parts of our being, one physical the other non physical, and they are completely dependent on each other. All illness are psychosomatic because we are not just body but mind and body.

Hippocrates (father of the modern medicine) said that everyone is a doctor within. However, our bodys ability to fuction at its optimum has been suppressed by various environmental factors, pollution, strain and stress of everyday life. We are constantly being exposed to pollutants, virus and bacteria and electromagnetic radiation. While there are inumerable new disease on the rise today, and with all these modern medical marvels, yet the answer can be found within the subconcious self. Self healing begins when mind, body and spirit regains balance with each other. Healing is a process of bringing together all parts of our being, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual self, in the symphony of life creating wholesome.

Human being has the natural abilities to heal itself. Good health is a state of mind, a state of emotional, mental, spiritual and physical balance. Human brain has the ability to manifest healing naturally. All we need to do is learn how to control our mind and unleash this ability that we were all born with. Overwhelming scientific evidence has proven it that human mind is the most potent tool in our quest for healing the body and soul.

Psychotherapy, a form of alternative practice that help eliminate traumatic experience, underlying causes of anxiety and fear from within deep subconscious. Reframing and affirmation is the methods of chanting our mind's perceptions into a perception that positively benifit the current reality. It allows one to overcome emotional blockages and hindering spirit and leads one toward the pathway of health and wellness...

Apothecarpy, uses of essential oils

Essential Oils for Common Maladies

There are probably as many uses for aromatherapy as there are essential oils, but research shows particular promise in relieving stress, stabilizing your mood, improving sleep, pain and nausea relief, and improving your memory and energy level.
To give you an idea of the versatility of aromatherapy, the following table lists some of the therapeutic uses of several oils for a few of today's most common complaints.12 As you can see, there are some real "multitaskers," like lavender andpeppermint, which can be used to treat more than one problem.13
ComplaintEssential Oils
StressLavender, lemon, bergamot, peppermint, vetiver, pine, and ylang ylang
InsomniaLavender,14 chamomile, jasmine, benzoin, neroli, rose, sandalwood, sweet marjoram, and ylang ylang (avoid lemon, which has an invigorating effect15)
AnxietyLavender, bergamot, rose, clary sage, lemon, Roman chamomile, orange, sandalwood, rose-scented geranium, and pine16
PainLavender, chamomile, clary sage, juniper, eucalyptus, rosemary, peppermint, lavender, and green apple (especially for migraines)
Nausea and vomitingMint, ginger, lemon, orange, ginger, dill, fennel, chamomile, clary sage, and lavender
Memory and attentionSage, peppermint,17 and cinnamon
Low energyBlack pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, angelica, jasmine, tea tree, rosemary, sage, and citrus

How to Use Essential Oils

Some of the most common ways to use essential oils include:
  • Massaging them (blended with a carrier oil) into your skin
  • Adding them to bathwater
  • Using them in a hot compress
  • Heating them in a diffuser
  • Rubbing a drop onto pulse points in lieu of perfume
But that's really just the beginning. There are many creative uses for essential oils. Here's a sampling of the 25 uses listed by the Epoch Times.18 For the full list, please see the original article.
Cleaning sprays and room deodorizersMaking your own cleaning supplies and room deodorizers using essential oils is an excellent alternative to commercial products that may contain any number of hazardous chemicals. For example, for a homemade cleaning scrub with antibacterial activity, simply add a few drops of lavender or tea tree oil tobaking soda.

Using a glass grated-cheese container with a stainless steel top that has holes in it makes it easy to sprinkle the baking soda on the surfaces. In lieu of commercial room deodorizers, you can either use an aromatherapy diffuser, or add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to water in a spray bottle.
Freshen laundryDryer sheets are notoriously toxic, emitting more than 600 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) through your dryer vent. You can easily freshen your laundry without risking your family's health simply by spritzing your wet laundry with a mix of water and a few drops of essential oil before placing it in the dryer. Alternatively, add a dozen or so drops to an old wool sock, and put it in the dryer with your laundry.
Therapeutic steam bathsTo deep clean pores, add a few drops of lavender or eucalyptus to hot water in your sink, then lean over it with a towel draped over your head to capture the steam. This will also help unclog your sinuses if you have a cold. Alternatively, close the drain in your shower and add some eucalyptus essential oils to the pooled water on the floor of the tub to create a soothing steam.
Customized lotions and soapSynthetic fragrances are a source of allergies, but you can easily customize your own soaps and lotions by adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil to an unscented brand.
Combat pimplesTea tree oil, which has potent antibacterial activity, can help dry out pimples.
Facial tonerMake your own facial toner by adding a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil to distilled water in a misting bottle.
Insect repellentsCotton balls soaked in peppermint oil is said to deter insects and rodents. The following essential oils also make excellent bug repellents in lieu of DEET and other chemical repellents:

  • Cinnamon leaf oil (one study found it was more effective at killing mosquitoes than DEET19)
  • Clear liquid vanilla extract20 mixed with olive oil
  • Wash with citronella soap, and then put some 100 percent pure citronella essential oil mixed with a carrier oil on your skin. Java Citronella is considered the highest quality citronella on the market
  • Catnip oil (according to one study, this oil is 10 times more effective than DEET)21
  • Lemon eucalyptus was found very effective in a 2014 Australian study;22 a mixture of 32 percent lemon eucalyptus oil provided more than 95 percent protection for three hours, compared to a 40 percent DEET repellent that gave 100 percent protection for seven hours

Drinking Water Is Becoming Increasingly Toxic — And Scarce

By Dr. Mercola
Drinking pure water every day is a key component of optimal health, yet more than one billion people on Earth do not have access to safe, clean drinking water.  
Not only is much of the water for the one billion contaminated with infectious organisms, but more than likely the vast majority of the planet has toxins in their municipal drinking water.
Two of the primary water polluters are large-scale monocrop farms andconfined animal feeding operations (CAFOs). According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA),1 US states with high concentrations of CAFOs report 20 to 30 serious water quality problems each year.
These operations are also depleting aquifers of valuable drinking water. Agriculture actually uses 70 percent of the world’s fresh water.

Lawsuits Against CAFOs Highlight Growing Pollution Problem

In Iowa, factory farms are accused of polluting two rivers that supply drinking water to the city of Des Moines.2 High levels of nitrates have been detected in the water, which is both difficult and costly to remove.
The health hazards of nitrates include blue baby syndrome, cancer, autoimmune diseases, reproductive problems, and more.
In Lower Yakima Valley, the Community Association for Restoration of the Environment (CARE) and Center for Food Safety (CFS) recently won a summary judgment3 against four CAFO dairies accused of unlawful water pollution4 after a 2012 report5 showed 20 percent of the wells tested in the area had nitrate levels above federal drinking water standards.
Unfortunately, the toxic waste created by factory farms cannot be completely contained or eliminated, no matter what you do. It has to go somewhere, even if it doesn’t go directly into a valuable water source.
The long-term solution is to change our commercial farming practices to root out toxic chemicals and soil additives, and to grow crops in such a way that the farm is contributing to the overall health and balance of the environment rather than polluting it and creating a dysfunctional ecosystem.

Water Pollution Has Many Sources

In addition to agriculture, other factors contributing to our diminishing water quality include but are not limited to:
  • Dentist offices installing mercury “silver” fillings without using amalgam separators. This is the largest source of mercury in wastewater entering publicly-owned treatment works.
  • Fluorosilicic acid (a toxic waste product from the phosphate fertilizer industry) added to water supplies, ostensibly to protect against tooth decay, tends to be contaminated with arsenic.6
  • According to research7 published in 2013, diluted fluorosilicic acid add on average 0.08 ppb of arsenic to your drinking water, and the Natural Resources Defense Council8 estimates that 56 million Americans living in 25 states drink water with arsenic at unsafe levels.
  • The chemicals used in water treatment, such as chlorine and chloramine, create highly toxic disinfection byproducts (DBPs).
  • Three principal types of DBPs are: trihalomethanes (THMs), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and haloacetic acids (HAAs). THMs are particularly hazardous when inhaled, which could expose you to toxic vapors when showering in hot water.
  • Pharmaceutical drugs, both those excreted through urine and feces, and those flushed down the drain or toilet also end up contaminating drinking water.
  • Four years ago, the Harvard Health Letter9 warned that results of pharmaceutical pollution are now showing in aquatic life. For example, estrogen and hormone mimicking chemicals are having a feminizing effect on male fish.
    Fish with both male and female sex characteristics are also showing up in heavily polluted areas, and antidepressants have been found concentrated in the brain tissue of fish caught downstream from water treatment facilities.
    Chemicals from perfume, cologne, lotions, sunscreens, and medicated creams also add to the contamination problem. According to Harvard:
    It’s been calculated... that one man’s use of testosterone cream can wind up putting as much of the hormone into the water as the natural excretions from 300 men.”
    Research by the US Geological Survey in 1999 and 2000 found measurable levels of one or more medications in 80 percent of water samples collected from 139 streams in 30 states, including antibiotics, antidepressants, blood thinners, heart medications, hormones, and painkillers.
    It’s important to understand that water treatment facilities are not equipped to eliminate drugs from your drinking water. So please do not dispose of unused drugs by flushing them down the toilet or drain.
  • Old worn-out pipes deposit lead, copper, and harmful bacteria into many people’s homes.

Aging Water Pipes Are Poisoning Americans

As reported by The Atlantic,10 aging water pipes have become a source of toxic exposure that many fail to recognize. While the article describes the situation in Flint, Michigan, many other areas around the US struggle with similar problems:
“In the past 16 months, abnormally high levels of e. coli, trihalomethanes, lead, and copper have been found in the city’s water, which comes from the local river (a dead body and an abandoned car were also found in the same river)...
[R]esidents say that the city government endangered their health when it stopped buying water from Detroit last year and instead started selling residents treated water from the Flint River...While Flint’s government and its financial struggles certainly have a role to play in the city’s water woes, the city may actually be a canary in the coal mine, signaling more problems to come across the country.
‘Flint is an extreme case, but nationally, there’s been a lack of investment in water infrastructure,’ said Eric Scorsone, an economist at Michigan State University who has followed the case of Flint.  “This is a common problem nationally — infrastructure maintenance has not kept up.”
America’s infrastructure is faltering. In 2013, the American Society for Civil Engineers11 found that most of the drinking water infrastructure across the nation is “nearing the end of its useful life.” The American Water Works Association estimates it would cost more than $1 trillion to update and replace all the water pipes in the US — money that many water utilities do not have.

Toxic Drinking Water Becoming More Common Around the US

Each year, red flags over toxic drinking water are raised across the nation. For example:
  • In 2014, citizens in Toledo, Ohio were warned not to drink their tap water as it was found to contain significantly elevated levels of microcystins, likely caused by algae blooms in Lake Erie.12 Microsystins are nerve toxins produced by freshwater cyanobacteria that can cause fever, headaches, vomiting, and seizures.
  • This year, Lake Erie is again beset by toxic algae blooms, which feed on phosphorus from manure, sewage, and fertilizer runoff that enters the lake. Other affected lakes in Ohio include Buckeye Lake and Grand Lake St. Marys,13 and residents are warned not to swim in the latter.

    A story in The Blade14 discusses a new study15 that suggests many of the world’s lakes are at risk due to farm fertilizer runoff, which feeds harmful blue-green algae (cyanobacteria). Once this algae is established, it’s more difficult to get rid of it than previously thought.
    The answer, according to the authors of this study, is better land-use management that addresses fertilizer runoff. Dramatic reductions in fertilizer use are also recommended. Lead author and Dartmouth College biology professor Kathryn Cottingham believes that “aggressive reductions in runoff could yield immediate benefits.”
    On a side note, harmful bacteria has been found to linger far longer in sand than in water,16 so it’s best to avoid beaches in areas where the water is known to be contaminated with sewage. For example, fecal bacteria levels have been found to be anywhere from 10 to 100 times higher in beach sand than in adjacent seawater.
  • That same year, six towns in Pennsylvania came under boil water advisories after rainfall caused filtering processes to back up.
  • In Chicago, street work and plumbing repairs have spiked lead levels in drinking water, as the service pipes are made of lead in many areas. As reported by the Chicago Tribune17 in 2013: “Lead levels exceeded federal standards at all but one of 13 Chicago homes tested where the service line had been physically disturbed between 2005 and 2011...” and “[h]igh levels can be found in tap water for years afterward...raising concerns that other cities with lead pipes could face similar problems.”

Could Water Pollution Put Olympic Competitors at Risk?

In related news, sailors and rowers have been warned about the extreme pollution levels in Rio waters, where the Olympic Games will be held next year. According to reports, pollution levels here are “equivalent to raw sewage.” As noted by Reuters:18
Tests commissioned by the Associated Press found levels of disease-causing viruses as much as 1.7 million times the level that would be considered hazardous on a Southern California beach.”
Local authorities are said to be taking proactive measures to limit water pollution by closing landfills and increasing water treatment among other things. Whether such measures will be enough to ensure the safety of competitors is unknown, although health risks appear to be downplayed by virtually all parties, including the competitors themselves.

Aquifers Are Being Drained Worldwide

The US is certainly not the only country struggling with diminishing water quality — and quantity. Water pollution is a global concern, and so are dwindling freshwater supplies. As recently reported by Mashable:19
“Humanity is rapidly depleting a third of the world's largest groundwater aquifers, with the top three most stressed groundwater basins in the political hotspots of the Middle East, the border region between India and Pakistan, and the Murzuk-Djado Basin in northern Africa. Making matters worse, researchers say in a pair of new studies,20 we don't know how much water is left in these massive aquifers...”
As you probably know, California is experiencing a severe drought, and the agricultural sector is draining underground aquifers to the point that the ground is actually sinking by as much as a foot per year in some areas. Disturbingly, we’re using up groundwater much faster than it can be replenished. According to James Famiglietti, a senior water scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the majority of our global groundwater “are past sustainability tipping points,” which means we’re on our way toward running out of freshwater worldwide.
Famiglietti’s co-author Alexandra Richey notes:
“What happens when a highly stressed aquifer is located in a region with socioeconomic or political tensions that can’t supplement declining water supplies fast enough? We’re trying to raise red flags now to pinpoint where active management today could protect future lives and livelihoods.”

At-Home Water Filtration Is a Must for Clean Pure Water

Since most water sources are now severely polluted, the issue of water filtration and purification couldn't be more important. If you have well water, it would be prudent to have your water tested for arsenic and other contaminants. If you have public water, you can get local drinking water quality reports from the EPA.21 In general, most water supplies contain a number of potentially hazardous contaminants, from fluoride, to drugs, and disinfection byproducts (DBPs), just to name a few.
For this reason, I strongly recommend using a high-quality water filtration system unless you can verify the purity of your water. To be certain you’re getting the purest water you can, filter the water both at the point of entry and at the point of use. This means filtering all the water that comes into the house, and then filtering again at the kitchen sink and shower.
Besides purification, I also believe it’s important to drink living water. Two years ago, I interviewed Dr. Gerald Pollack about his book, The Fourth Phase of Water: Beyond Solid, Liquid, and Vapor. This fourth phase of water is referred to as ”structured water” and is the type of water found in all of your cells. This water is more energized and can help recharge your mitochondria. Water from a deep spring is one excellent source of structured water. The deeper the better, as structured water is created under pressure. There's a great website called FindaSpring.com22 where you can find a natural spring in your area.
You can also promote structured water through vortexing or cooling it to 39 degrees Fahrenheit.  I personally drink vortexed water nearly exclusively as I became a big fan of Viktor Schauberger who did much pioneering work on vortexing about a century ago. Dr. Pollack found that by creating a vortex in a glass of water, you’re putting more energy into it, thereby increasing  the structure of water. According to Dr. Pollack virtually ANY energy put into the water seems to create or build structured water.
