How to Improve All 9 Types of Intelligences

Traditionally, intelligence was measured by short aptitude tests that measures competence in core subjects such as reading and mathematics. And to a large extent, intelligence is still defined by how well you do on aptitude tests. However Howard Gardner, an academician from Harvard University, thinks that being intelligent doesn’t mean that you can easily comprehend what you read or can easily solve an equation. That is why he presented the Theory of Multiple Intelligences, which states that there are actually multiple types of intelligences, 9 to be exact.

In this theory, Gardner explains that there should be no single ability that defines intelligence. The hypothesis, as printed in his 1983 book ‘Frames of Mind: the Theory of Multiple Intelligences,’ proposed that several criteria should be looked upon in order to predict the intelligence of a person. Whatever you excel in makes you intelligent in your own right. But if you are looking for more ways to improve your multiple smarts, then read on below to find out how you can do so:

Naturalist Intelligence

This type of intelligence is defined as the ability to distinguish and classify animals, plants and other naturally-occurring objects in the environment. As such, individuals who are touted as ‘nature smart’ excel in applying scientific theories to real-life scenarios. Landscape architects, naturalists and scientists are said to be ‘nature smart.’ Do you want to become just like them? Then here are ways on how you can improve your Naturalist Intelligence:

1) Experience the great outdoors.

In order to be one with nature, you must expose yourself to nature. Break away from the comfortable confines of your home. Trek, hike and bike your way through forests and mountains. These exhilarating activities will help you improve your skills in categorizing and recognizing plants, animals, even rock formations!

2) Do gardening.

Bring out the green thumb in you by transforming your home’s vacant spaces into a plant sanctuary. It is one of the best ways to connect you with your primal state, according to James Jiller of Urban GreenWorks. By tending to your garden on a regular basis, you can boost your knowledge of the environment.

Visual-Spatial Intelligence

Accurate and abstract visualization is just one of the many skills possessed by ‘picture smart’ persons. With their exceptional ability in thinking in pictures, visually-spatially intelligent people can paint, construct and design objects with relative ease.

If you want to hone this kind of smartness – then make sure to do the following mental workouts:

1) Play Puzzles.

Yes, you can have fun while you hone your visual-spatial intelligence. In fact, the most entertaining way to hike your IQ by a few notches is to play puzzles. Games such as Rubik’s Cube, Jigsaw puzzles and spatial puzzles that require you to maneuver items inside your head will do wonders for your visual-spatial skills.

2) Play Chess.

Another enjoyable way to improve your ‘picture smarts’ is to play chess. It cannot be denied that this game has multitudes of brain benefits. Apart from boosting memory and enhancing problem-solving skills, chess improves one’s creativity – one of the most important aspects for visual-spatial intelligence. With enhanced creativity, you will be able to create and design items just like picture-smart architects and painters.

3) Utilize Google Earth and Google Maps often.

Apart from helping you find your way in an unfamiliar place, Google Earth and Google Maps applications can help you boost your visual-spatial intelligence. These programs, after all, help develop your sense of direction. One of the best things about these tools is that they can transform you into a navigational pro, even without the need for a map.

However, it is important that you do not use GPS navigation to navigate though as that will turn you into a mindless drone. Instead, use maps and learn how to navigate from place to place on your own, with the assistance of a navigation system. Research has been done on this topic and it shows that navigating the city without the use of GPS is how you would improve your visual-spatial skills.

Verbal-Linguistic Intelligence

Word smart people – or those who possess verbal-linguistic intelligence – feature exceptional verbal skills. They are highly-sensitive to meanings, sounds and rhythms of words. In essence, they possess great capacities in writing, reading, teaching and listening. If you want to be smart in the verbal-linguistic aspect, take heed of the following tips:

1) Keep a journal of things that fascinate or interest you.

Go through the things you find noteworthy – a unique news article or a famous celebrity, perhaps. Write all the thoughts that draw you to this appealing event/entity.

2) Write about a country or city you want to visit.

Are you dreaming of visiting Paris or living in the United Kingdom? What if you were given the chance to live out your fantasy? Talk about what you plan on doing, if ever you are given the opportunity to live a life different from the one you have right now.

3) Write a literary masterpiece.

It can be a story, poem, novel or even a play. Let your imagination fly and allow the words from your mind to trickle down to your journal. Show your write-up to your English teacher or Literature professor and ask for some feedback. What parts are exceptional? What sections need improvement? While you might not write down an award-winning novel on your first try, your dedication and hard work might help you pen down the next Harry Potter series.

Mathematical-Logical Intelligence

Defined as the skill to think abstractly and conceptually, this intelligence is often seen in number smart people such as engineers, scientists and mathematicians. If you want to develop exceptional skills in logical and mathematical problem solving, then these brain exercises can definitely help you out:

1) Play card games.

Contrary to popular beliefs, you need not engage in a boring activity just to improve your logical smarts. One of the most entertaining ways for you to increase your number IQ is to play card games that stimulate your brain to perform mental math. Fun pastimes such as Crazy Eight, Go Fish and Gin Rummy are perfect for the young ones, while matured players will benefit a lot from the addicting game of Black Jack.

3) Break secret codes.

Take the role of Sherlock Holmes by playing detective with your friends. Let your friends create secret codes – or lift some from the web – and try to break them without the help of anybody. Once you get the hang of cracking codes, you will find it easier to solve logical and mathematical problems along the way.

4) Join a math club.

If you are really determined to improve your mathematical smarts, a knowledgeable and fun way to do so is to join a math club. While this might sound boring – it is not! Such a club allows you to learn in a supportive yet sociable environment. Learning with your colleagues and participating in events and competitions will give you the math IQ boost you are looking for.

Musical Intelligence

Singers, composers and musicians usually possess this kind of intelligence. Such ‘musical smart’ persons can appreciate and produce perfect timbre, rhythm and pitch. Become the musical virtuoso you aspire to be by training your mental faculties with these methods:

1) Sing!

You might think singing doesn’t like you, but it does not mean that you should not sing to your heart’s content! Sing whenever you can: in the shower, in the car, even in the office pantry during break time! While you might not be able to hit the high notes just like your favorite singers, singing constantly is a great way for you to perfect your music smarts.

2) Learn how to play an instrument.

This is perhaps the best thing you can do in order to hone your musical intelligence. Studying an instrument – no matter how simple or complicated it might be – enables you to learn the basic tones, rhythms and pitches. And as you improve your instrument-playing capacities, you will be able to demonstrate the music smarts that your idols possess.

3) Listen to different types of music.

Musical intelligence is not just about singing well and playing a plethora of instruments, it is about appreciating the beauty of music – no matter how peculiar or weird it might be. Hone your music smarts by lending an ear to different kinds of symphonies – from classic to pop, even from native to eclectic. By immersing your ears in multitudes of melodies, you will be able to distinguish the different tones that govern the world of music

Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence

Wonder why professional athletes boast of perfect score cards? And why dancers can jive to fast tunes all so well? That is because they possess bodily-kinesthetic intelligence, outlined as the acumen in skilfully handling objects and controlling physical movements. Here are some tips that can help you become physically smart:

1) Practice and Play Sports.

It goes without saying that practice indeed makes perfect. Of course, if you want to be physically intelligence just like pro athletes – then you need to engage your body in sports that tickle your fancy. It does not matter if you suck at first. As long as you set your mind to it – and as long as you are 100% motivated to improve your bodily intelligence, then you will be able to improve your bodily-kinesthetic intelligence – sooner or later. The key to improving your bodily-kinesthetic intelligence is to practice well and often—and to practice correctly. By learning how to improve your skills and getting better, you will improve your bodily-kinesthetic intelligence.

2) Play Charades.

Do you want to become an excellent actor? Then you need to be able to portray people and events accurately. One good way to enhance your bodily-kinesthetic intelligence is to play charades with friends. Not only is this an entertaining way to spend time with pals, it can also improve your skills in acting. If your friend manages to decipher all of your acts in just a few seconds’ time, then it means that you are getting better and better with your kinesthetic abilities.

3) Join Acting Classes.

Say that you are already a pro in charades – then it is time for you to take your acting skills to another level. Join acting classess in school and audition for simple plays if you can. Not only are these good methods to hone and improve your thespian capabilities, these will give you the confidence to act in front of throngs of audiences.

Interpersonal Intelligence

A people-smart person, or one who possesses interpersonal intelligence, excels in determining and responding to the motivations, moods and desires of other people. Known as the ability to empathize and visualize from numerous perspectives, interpersonal intelligence is often seen in counselors, ministers and politicians. Solidify your counseling and interpersonal skills with the help of such techniques:

1) Be Empathetic.

It is not enough to just listen to your friend’s woes. If you want to improve your interpersonal intelligence, then you must make sure to practice empathy whenever you are engaged in a conversation with a family member or a pal. Put yourself in another’s shoes and try to resolve the conflict as if it were your own.

2) Socialize.

You might have a big brood of friends, but if you want to improve your interpersonal intelligence, then you need to get out of your shell and be a social butterfly. Take time to meet new people and engage in conversations that will help you learn more about your newfound buddies.

Intrapersonal Intelligence

Theorists, philosophers, and philosophers are seen to possess this kind of intelligence. Self smart people are said to be aware of their own values, beliefs, feelings, and attitudes. Improve your self-reflection and sentience by conditioning your mind with the following activities:

1) Formulate Your Own Personal Development Plan.

How do you want to be in the next few years? What are your plans when you grow old? Write them all on your journal and reflect on them whenever you can. This will keep you aware of your own emotions and desires in life.

2) Engage in Personal Pep Talk.

Before the start of each day, face the mirror and boost your confidence with positive thoughts and ideas. Positive self-talk has been touted for many years as an important tool to reaching success and attaining goals. In fact, Navy SEALS are known to engage in positive self-talk on a daily basis to get through their grueling six-month BUDS training program.

Existential Intelligence

What is the meaning of life? How did we get here? Why do we die? These are just some of the sensitive questions that existentially intelligent persons are not afraid to ask.

People who possess this astuteness – such as theologians, philosophers and scientists – outclass others in terms of deep and reflective thinking and formulating abstract theories. Hone your existential intelligence with the help of these mind-conditioning methods:

1) Apply what you have learned.

2) Relate the subjects you have learned with national concerns and global issues.

3) Study topics from multiple points of view.

Intelligence does come in several facets and domains. If you think you suck at math or music, you can still excel in many other ways and be smart in many other aspects. The tips mentioned above are practical ways for you to boost your brain power. Apply them in to your day-to-day routines, and see how smart you can turn out to be!

Magic words ♥

The transitional moments of stillness in our lives can be restless, they can trigger unnecessary anxiety, which is detrimental to our overall health. We need to pay attention to our thoughts and which direction their physical manifestation is leading us. It is crucial to have total awareness of one self at all times.The instant we realize that the process of any negative thinking is taking place, it is important to guide it into a positive direction. There are several ways to do so. One must find an outlet. Whether its painting, writing poetry, running, going for a walk, exercising of any kind, any form of activity will allow an inflow of fresh air into our troubled brain.
Another, an even easier way to clear up the mind is to just simply start expressing our gratitude. Even in the most desperate and hopeless moments of our lives there's is always something to be grateful for. Express your gratitude for everything that surrounds you, no matter how silly it may seem to do so. Everything from park benches to trees, cars and buses, stores, a cup of coffee in your hand, a table and a chair that we are able to use every day, and the persons that manufactured it, say" thank you" for all of your family, and close friends, naming them individually, for the sun that comes up each and every day to warm the planet, for the plants that sprout to feed us because of it, for the fresh air and water that we still have to make our survival possible. And if you are still struggling to find something to be grateful for, just simply repeat words "Thank You". Make a song out of it if you have to, the words have been labeled "magic" for a reason. It is a very simple, and highly effective concept. Continue to vocalize it until you feel better, however long it takes. Let it be the first thing you say when you wake up, chant it at breakfast lunch and dinner, in the shower and in the car, at each and every traffic light, at work, and as you fall asleep at the end of your day. Make it your mantra! In the midst of the deepest blues those "magic" words will help you brake free. They will allow you to gain your independence from the destructive forces of negativity in all its forms. The practice of being grateful will lift the heaviness and make you receptive to the LOVE that is all around us. It will help you breathe deeper, which will in turn nourish every cell in your body with rejuvenating oxygen and slowly, or in some cases very rapidly will restore the balance that was lost due to the stress that we find our selves under.
Any physical or mental strain translates into stress, if we are alive we are stressing. Stress within it self can be good for us or bad. It's all a matter of how we choose to perceive it. If we are stressing our bodies and minds in hopes to achieve a specific goal, to learn something, or solve a problem, to get our selves in better physical shape, that would be an example of beneficial stress, but if we worry and beat our selves up senselessly about things that we have no control over, such as being stuck in traffic, your bosses crankiness, or your partners need for space(which often makes us feel insecure and rejected), are all perfect examples of bad stress. For as long as we are alive , as long as we are breathing, it will always be there. Everything within us is under constant stress . Our heart is beating, our cells are producing life giving energy, our brains are transmitting electrical impulses with each thought, everything is hard at work for the team "HUMAN BODY". Then why can't we join this team and work just as hard toward total unity with our own selves? Everything and anything that you can think of is there for us to appreciate and learn from. So start putting more energy into restoring your body's homeostasis. Stop fighting the flow of life, bloom where you're planted, strengthen your character, be grateful in all, and as a very dear friend of mine often says ; " always see the beauty!" all my love.

How To Raise Your Vibration
Many of us are struggling with family relationships right now as not everyone has chosen to raise their vibration. When we all chose to incarnate on this planet we all chose, in the beginning, that we wanted to be here for this opportunity to evolve and expand in consciousness with the planet. However, once we incarnated....many of us used our free will to not ascend. Some people, and their higher selves, decided they needed more time to learn and evolve in duality/conflict/fear/ego based experiences. Now this creates a problem for the other half of us who have chosen to ascend in consciousness and raise the vibrations of our energy fields because we no longer are a vibrational match to our incarnated family members who are choosing not to ascend. And our energy fields are clashing and repelling... as like energy attracts like energies and opposite energies repel each other.
An ascending humans energy field vibrates much faster and tends to pull the other persons energy field up into a higher vibration, simply by being in our presence, and this will throw others who are choosing not to ascend in ATTACK mode because when their vibration begins to rise they run into they are not wanting to step into their truth and accept responsibility for their lives. They want to remain in a 3D blinded state of consciousness of forgetfulness, and this is perfectly fine for them. Unfortunately, this creates great pain for an ascending soul because we still want to interact with our family and we also want to help them ascend in vibration as well. But it is not our place......and just our very presence can create so much conflict and confusion in their being the relationship can become a huge burden on all parties involved. This really becomes our lesson in detachment and also learning how to respond to others without reacting.
Because we have a higher vibration and a higher state of consciousness, more is expected of us. We will need to remain focused on our ascension path and release the need to save others, because truly they are exactly where they are choosing to be. They don't want us to raise their vibration, but we need to be there for our SELF and choose to spend time in relationships that are on a more resonant vibrational level otherwise we will constantly find ourselves in chaos and duality over and over again. This is hard because we as souls have never ascended in consciousness, at such an accelerated rate, with half of the planet saying YES and the other half saying NO. In order to speed up your dark night of the soul, you will need to grasp the lessons. Keep your focus on you; your ego will keep distracting you by getting you to think about them and what they did wrong and what they need to learn etc... What have you learned from this latest altercation? What can you improve on? What do you need to release? What do you need to accept about your self?
Love your self and honor your imperfections as you rapidly learn and evolve through intense learning experiences that will help you make better, more life affirming choices for your souls ascension! Let things go that do not serve a love, joy, peace, unity vibration. When you view all of this from a higher perspective you an see how actually PERFECT half of us ascending and the other half not ascending is for an ascending souls lessons in mastery. We are learning so much through the behaviors, rejections, demands and fears of our unascending brothers and sisters. We are learning what we no longer want to experience anymore through our interactions together. However,
YOU will need to trust your self and the decisions you make for your highest and best good. Stop feeling guilty or responsible for everyone else and their well being and also stop expecting all of your relationships to be in perfect harmony at this time of great transition. Do what is right/light filled for YOU.....after all who are YOU living for? This is your souls what enhances your light not depletes it....and be ok with your decisions. In addition, always know that if a relationship is meant to will be. We are never separated from anyone, as we are all one and energetically connected at all times. Sometimes setting a boundary with someone and also giving each other a little space generates the healing energy each person needs to return to the relationship in a more evolved manner. In the mean time know that it is your love, compassion and acceptance that you it to your self.

good reads from my fb timeline

EMOTIONS and EGO means (Creative Projected Thought) that's it.. it is not a big boogy man.. to be feared* We are INDEED the ultimate responsible masters, architects, alchemists, designers, conductors, creators and determiners of our own reality wherever we ARE ! Whether we are aware of this process or not it is still happening, nothing but this... On every level and dimension of our projective thought ! When we fully acknowledge this.. We create for ourselves our natural eternal rite Of passage or pipeline and we naturally make ourselves available to find or build our own bridge.. to dissolve, transcend and understand.. ALL Of THIS !!!! It never Was Anything Anyway.. but Merely Our Own Idea and A Blip* in our own self created time Adventure! This is The incredible explorer that lives innately inside all of creation itself* and indeed all of US ! Only to make the final and ultimate realization that there never was anything to explore in the first place.. Because WE KNEW WE ARE ALL THIS ONE LIGHT and INDEED The Impeccable ORIGINAL ETERNAL SELF ! But we must take our First Steps by acknowledging all of this as it stands..completely.. right now.. This is where TRULY integrated honesty and integrity take birth in our lives.. And ARE INDEED LIVING and ALIVE for us to SEE before us! This whole experience is totally and completely self contained inside of YOU, I and ALL ! ~Ariana Sha

Humans are going to have conflict. It is not something we need to avoid; however, we do need to learn how to speak our truth with words of love ~ harming none ~ or we could create additional karma for ourselves. Now that does not mean....we step out of authenticity and integrity, and tell people what they want to hear just so we don't hurt their egos feelings. We need to be honest and express our needs, standing up for ourselves ~ however, we can do this in a grounded, loving way with strong yet compassionate words. We also need to address these situations DE-PASSIONATELY...... because if we are very passionate about our "truth" then the likely hood of us opening up our energy field to outside influences becomes very possible. When we open our energy field, we loose our protection and leak energy..... our energy becomes scattered. Oftentimes, this is when we will project portions of our energy into someone else's energy field, and likewise they will project energy into ours. We also create energetic cords and entanglements with other people, and this will drain both people's energetic systems, as well as, create great confusion within both beings. If you get caught up in a moment where you loose your balance, it would be best to walk away and gather yourself (your energy) and get grounded before you address the situation. The situation will need to be dealt with....otherwise, it will continue to re-create itself.

We are approaching the end of an age. We are moving out of the dark ages where we have been immersed in the negativity of polarity and duality and entering a 2,000 year cycle where each one of us has the opportunity to rapidly raise our vibration and receive the transmutational energies of our higher/spiritual self.
Layer upon layer of distortion that has been residing within our energy fields ~ blocking us from our truth as divine, LOVING, spiritual beings is being transmuted by the light of our higher selves. We are going through our own inner apocalypse. Apocalypse in greek means lifting of the veil:
WIKIPEDIA: An Apocalypse (Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apokálypsis; "lifting of the veil" or "revelation") is a disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception, i.e. the veil to be lifted. The Apocalypse of John (Greek Ἀποκάλυψις Ἰωάννου) is the Book of Revelation, the last book of the New Testament. By extension, apocalypse can refer to any End Time scenario.
Everything that is not based on truth will rise to the surface to been seen so we can release it. This is why we see so many "secrets" being revealed at this coaches who have sexually abused their players, banks and corporations who have been dishonest and greedy with their monies, political leaders who have been caught using drugs and hiring call girls, priest and pastors who have misused their power, family secrets coming out and families falling apart, etc..... These events are all mirror reflections of the collective ego and shadow consciousness we are all being asked to heal now.
We are unveiling our "selves" and releasing those distorted aspects of self that can not reside in the higher vibrational dimensions of peace, love and oneness. Everything that is not LOVE, must go.
As we go through this process ~ it may not feel so great. Old distorted emotions, feelings, behavioral patterns, and beliefs are rising to the surface at an accelerated rate. Most of these are unconscious....we don't even know they are there. The more we surrender to the process and are willing to "see" ourselves ~ being brutally self honest ~ the more we will be able to accept our fragmented "unloved" negative parts of ourself that get pushed to the outer edges of our energy field, bringing them back to our center so the LIGHT of our higher self can shine down on them helping us to transmute them. If we refuse to "see and accept" our inner negativity we push it away from the center of our energy remains fragmented and outside of our true self where the LIGHT from our higher self is not able to transform it into it's highest expression of love. All of our disowned, unloved parts must be brought back into wholeness so we can be healed and returned to our truth ~ which is LOVE. ~ How To Raise Your Vibration — with Rokalla Balakrishna.

I've been searching for a new necklace, found this pendant among my craft supplies, not sure where it came from, but I am pretty sure I'm supposed to have it. I love the symbolism.

Triskelions: Ancient and Modern
The triskelion or” triskele” is also known as the tri-spiral or “Spiral of Life.” The three spirals in the triskelion are interconnected with no open ends thus creating one continuous line. Each spiral turns in the same direction. The three spirals represent balance, harmony and continual motion indicative of the flow of life and of the Earth in her seasons and cycles.

This symbol is found on many ancient carvings, the most famous of which is Newgrange in County Meath, Ireland, which dates back to 2500 BC. The symbol is carved into the rock at the main entrance. It is one of the most famous stones in Megalithic art. The same symbol is found Triskelion Newgange roofengraved on one of the stones inside the chamber. Newgrange is best known for the illumination of its chamber by the Winter Solstice sun. Morning sunlight travels up the passageway. Then, as the sun rises, the whole chamber is dramatically illuminated.

The triskelion is often thought to have Celtic origin, but it was carved at least 2000 years before the Celts inhabited Ireland. According to Celtic tradition the triskelion is connected to the mother goddess. It is an invocation of the three material domains of earth, air, and water.

The gold quimbaya is another example of the use of the triple spiral– from Columbia.

As receivers and transmitters, triskelions made of certain metals gather and disseminate the frequencies at which they resonate. The triskelion has an amazing ability to neutralize harmful energy, balancing Yin and Yang, (positive and negative; masculine and femine) in almost any setting.

Triskelions set up a bioelectric and biomagnetic energy flow based on mathematics and sacred geometry. Placed in or around water, they create energetic vortices that bring molecular structure to water.

Since the writing of the book, as the authors have experimented with different ways of making triskelions, they have discovered both a masculine and a feminine form of the triskelion. The basic masculine form is made using a single copper wire or tube. The feminine version is made by twisting 3 smaller copper wires together before forming the spirals. For maximum benefit, use triskelions in pairs—one masculine and one feminine. Place one at the base of your water container; place the other at the top of your container on the opposite side. Copper tubing (1/8 or ¼ inch) filled with paramagnetic rock powder makes a powerful triskelion that can be placed underneath your water pitcher.

In our most recent work with triskelions, we have incorporated gold and silver. This takes the masculine and feminine energies to a higher octave. Triskelions made with gold and silver-plated copper wire bring in the resonance of the divine masculine and the divine feminine—an influence that has been lacking on the Earth for hundreds of years. Using a pair of gold/silver triskelions with your water helps to re-balance the masculine/feminine in your personal life and in your surroundings. And when you achieve greater balance, others usually follow.

According to Brenda Schnose, the spirit of water was anciently referred to as “Heddeka,” and represented by the triple spiral. According to Brenda:

As a whole, the three swirls together represent Heddeka. When you look at them together but separate, one circle represents You as creator, one circle represents the beloved Earth and one circle represents the Central Sun of all universes. This symbol comes from the time of Atlantis. The water element Heddeka has been upon this earth from the time of the first humans. Through this symbol, the water will increase in vibration. So it is helpful and beneficial for humans, animals, plants, and the earth itself. . . . . Carry the symbol with you next to your body. Place the symbol in or under your water glass. By coming together with this water element you can help clean the water of our beloved earth. Heddeka is here to be of service to you in these changing times. This element has been forgotten through time but is now returning through the bearers of light.

no half steppin

1. When your friends ask you to hangout, and you don’t feel like it, don’t go. Don’t ever do things halfway or do something that makes you uncomfortable. With everything, give all of yourself, even the pieces you never knew existed.
2. It is okay to not know. Everyone always despises the phrase, “I don’t know” but no one tells you that it is okay to not know. The becoming is more important than the being, anyways.
3. If someone ever makes you feel less, in any way, you have every right to walk away. You have every right to cut out toxic people in your life. To close the door on people who make you feel bad about who you are or what you stand for. Friends don’t tear down, they build up.
4. Loss is always going to happen. Just like paint will always chip and rain will always fall, loss will always be part of life. No matter how much I don’t like it, or avoid it, it is going to walk my way at several times in my life. Learn to embrace it and learn to get closure.
5. Give yourself a chance. Stop saying, “I don’t think I can” or “But what if I am not able to?” and give yourself a chance. This may be cliche, but try to believe in yourself. When you get older, your knees won’t work the same and you won’t have the best memory, and you are going to wish you’d given yourself a chance years sooner.
6. Fall in love. Don’t be guarded before you fall in love. You could fall in love three times and still not find the right one, but none of it is going to make “the one” matter less. Don’t fall into that idea that your first love has to be your best love. Fall in love as many times as it naturally happens.
7. Firsts are going to be messy. First loves, first kisses, first dates, first failed tests, first college class, first time you drive a car, first time you ride a plane - first times were made to be imperfect. Just because it’s messy and all over the place, doesn’t mean it can’t be good or worthwhile.
8. You want another scoop of ice-cream? Go get it. Get three more scoops of ice-cream if that is what you want. “Fat” is not the opposite of beautiful and it is not the opposite of happy. Don’t let anyone tell you that your body type isn’t beautiful. Beauty is a social construct, create your own, become your own.
9. Let yourself be alone. Loneliness is not a bad thing. It is healthy and normal. Everyone needs to spend a good portion of their life alone. We learn who we are when we are alone; life is less crowded and more clear when we are alone.
10. If you aren’t happy where you are, change it. Quit your job, move, become a vegetarian, get a new hobby, pick up an old hobby, whatever you do - make sure it benefits you. Life is too short to not be alive, to not be passionate, and overflowing.
—Amanda Helm, Ten Things I Learned before 20

"If your life is not quite working out like you think it should, have the courage to admit it is not because of other people. It is not because there are unknown forces out there which are conspiring against you. It is not because for some unknown reason (and even being unknown you still accept as fact) it was just not meant to be for you. It is soooooo not, not meant to be. Admit you are where you are because of you, because you are not doing what you need to do. Maybe you don't know what you need to do or maybe you do but you are afraid. I know. I've been there. I've used all those excuses in the past. When I finally took full responsibility, my world became truly blessed."

“For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers. I revere them when they live in tribes and families, in forests and groves. And even more I revere them when they stand alone. They are like lonely persons. Not like hermits who have stolen away out of some weakness, but like great, solitary men, like Beethoven and Nietzsche. In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfill themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves. Nothing is holier, nothing is more exemplary than a beautiful, strong tree. When a tree is cut down and reveals its naked death-wound to the sun, one can read its whole history in the luminous, inscribed disk of its trunk: in the rings of its years, its scars, all the struggle, all the suffering, all the sickness, all the happiness and prosperity stand truly written, the narrow years and the luxurious years, the attacks withstood, the storms endured. And every young farm boy knows that the hardest and noblest wood has the narrowest rings, that high on the mountains and in continuing danger the most indestructible, the strongest, the ideal trees grow.

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.

A tree says: A kernel is hidden in me, a spark, a thought, I am life from eternal life. The attempt and the risk that the eternal mother took with me is unique, unique the form and veins of my skin, unique the smallest play of leaves in my branches and the smallest scar on my bark. I was made to form and reveal the eternal in my smallest special detail.

A tree says: My strength is trust. I know nothing about my fathers, I know nothing about the thousand children that every year spring out of me. I live out the secret of my seed to the very end, and I care for nothing else. I trust that God is in me. I trust that my labor is holy. Out of this trust I live..... with

When we are stricken and cannot bear our lives any longer, then a tree has something to say to us: Be still! Be still! Look at me! Life is not easy, life is not difficult. Those are childish thoughts. Let God speak within you, and your thoughts will grow silent. You are anxious because your path leads away from mother and home. But every step and every day lead you back again to the mother. Home is neither here nor there. Home is within you, or home is nowhere at all.

A longing to wander tears my heart when I hear trees rustling in the wind at evening. If one listens to them silently for a long time, this longing reveals its kernel, its meaning. It is not so much a matter of escaping from one's suffering, though it may seem to be so. It is a longing for home, for a memory of the mother, for new metaphors for life. It leads home. Every path leads homeward, every step is birth, every step is death, every grave is mother.

So the tree rustles in the evening, when we stand uneasy before our own childish thoughts: Trees have long thoughts, long-breathing and restful, just as they have longer lives than ours. They are wiser than we are, as long as we do not listen to them. But when we have learned how to listen to trees, then the brevity and the quickness and the childlike hastiness of our thoughts achieve an incomparable joy. Whoever has learned how to listen to trees no longer wants to be a tree. He wants to be nothing except what he is. That is home. That is happiness.”

5 Early Warning Signs You’re With a Narcissist

article by Dr. Craig Malkin - helpful guide to catching the signs of NPD early on in a relationship.

At the beginning of April this year, I was tapped by the Huffington Post Live team for a discussion on narcissism. I happily agreed to appear, for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that narcissism happens to be one of my favorite subjects. Early in my training, I had the pleasure of working with one of the foremost authorities on narcissism in our field, and in part because of that experience, I went on to work with quite a few clients who’d been diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder. That’s where I learned that the formal diagnostic label hardly does justice to the richness and complexity of this condition. The most glaring problems are easy to spot — the apparent absence of even a shred of empathy, the grandiose plans and posturing, the rage at being called out on the slightest of imperfections or normal human missteps — but if you get too hung up on the obvious traits, you can easily miss the subtle (and often more common) features that allow a narcissist to sneak into your life and wreak havoc.
Just ask Tina Swithin, who went on to write a book about surviving her experience with a man who clearly meets criteria for NPD (and very likely, a few other diagnoses). To her lovestruck eyes, her soon-to-be husband seemed more like a prince charming than the callous, deceitful spendthrift he later proved to be. Looking back, Tina explains, there were signs of trouble from the start, but they were far from obvious at the time. In real life, the most dangerous villains rarely advertise their malevolence. So what are we to do? How do we protect ourselves from narcissists if they’re so adept at slipping into our lives unnoticed? I shared some of my answers to that question in our conversation, and I encourage you to watch it. But there were a few I didn’t get to, and others I didn’t have the chance to describe in depth, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to revisit the topic here. Tread carefully if you catch a glimpse of any of these subtler signs:

1) Projected Feelings of Insecurity: I don’t mean that narcissists see insecurity everywhere. I’m talking about a different kind of projection altogether, akin to playing hot potato with a sense of smallness and deficiency. Narcissists say and do things, subtle or obvious, that make you feel less smart, less accomplished, less competent. It’s as if they’re saying, “I don’t want to feel this insecure and small; here, you take the feelings.” Picture the boss who questions your methods after their own decision derails an important project, the date who frequently claims not to understand what you’ve said, even when you’ve been perfectly clear, or the friend who always damns you with faint praise (“Pretty good job this time!”). Remember the saying: “Don’t knock your neighbor’s porch light out to make yours shine brighter.” Well, the narcissist loves to knock out your lights to seem brighter by comparison.

2) Emotion-phobia: Feelings are a natural consequence of being human, and we tend to have lots of them in the course of normal interactions. But the very fact of having a feeling in the presence of another person suggests you can be touched emotionally by friends, family, partners, and even the occasional tragedy or failure. Narcissists abhor feeling influenced in any significant way. It challenges their sense of perfect autonomy; to admit to a feeling of any kind suggests they can be affected by someone or something outside of them. So they often change the subject when feelings come up, especially their own, and as quick as they might be to anger, it’s often like pulling teeth to get them to admit that they’ve reached the boiling point — even when they’re in the midst of the most terrifying tirade.

3) A Fragmented Family Story: Narcissism seems to be born of neglect and abuse, both of which are notorious for creating an insecure attachment style (for more on attachment, see here and here). But the very fact that narcissists, for all their posturing, are deeply insecure, also gives us an easy way to spot them. Insecurely attached people can’t talk coherently about their family and childhood; their early memories are confused, contradictory, and riddled with gaps. Narcissists often give themselves away precisely because their childhood story makes no sense, and the most common myth they carry around is the perfect family story. If your date sings their praises for their exalted family but the reasons for their panegyric seem vague or discursive, look out. The devil is in the details, as they say — and very likely, that’s why you’re not hearing them.

4) Idol Worship: Another common narcissistic tendency you might be less familiar with is the habit of putting people on pedestals. The logic goes a bit like this: “If I find someone perfect to be close to, maybe some of their perfection will rub off on me, and I’ll become perfect by association.” The fact that no one can be perfect is usually lost on the idol-worshipping narcissist — at least until they discover, as they inevitably do, that their idol has clay feet. And stand back once that happens. Few experiences can prepare you for the vitriol of a suddenly disappointed narcissist. Look out for any pressure to conform to an image of perfection, no matter how lovely or magical the compulsive flattery might feel.

5) A High Need for Control: For the same reason narcissists often loathe the subject of feelings, they can’t stand to be at the mercy of other people’s preferences; it reminds them that they aren’t invulnerable or completely independent — that, in fact, they might have to ask for what they want — and even worse, people may not feel like meeting the request. Rather than express needs or preferences themselves, they often arrange events (and maneuver people) to orchestrate the outcomes they desire. In the extreme form, this can manifest as abusive, controlling behaviors. (Think of the man who berates his wife when dinner isn’t ready as soon as he comes home. He lashes out precisely because at that very moment, he’s forced to acknowledge that he depends on his wife, something he’d rather avoid.) But as with most of these red flags, the efforts at control are often far subtler than outright abuse. Be on the look out for anyone who leaves you feeling nervous about approaching certain topics or sharing your own preferences. Narcissists have a way of making choices feel off-limits without expressing any anger at all — a disapproving wince, a last-minute call to preempt the plans, chronic lateness whenever you’re in charge of arranging a night together. It’s more like a war of attrition on your will than an outright assault on your freedom.

None of these signs, in isolation, proves that you’re with a narcissist. But if you see a lot of them, it’s best to sit up and take notice. They’re all way of dodging vulnerability, and that’s a narcissist’s favorite tactic.
Originally appeared at The Huffington Post

these next two articles were good, but blatantly sexist, "10 ways to know shes a keeper and 10 ways to if you're dating a real man" by james michael sama. give me a break, men and women should not have 2 different sets of standards. people are people and they do what ever is easy unless they've cultivated some type of character, so just so you know i'm going to edit these some)

We’ve all heard “oh, there are plenty of fish in the sea” when it comes to dating. But, when was the last time you walked into someone’s house to find hundreds of tiny minnows proudly hung along their mantle? No. You want the catch. You want the one you couldn’t possibly let go. The one you’d do anything to reel in. So, how do you know you have found a keeper? Here are 10 signs to look out for.

They don’t look for [superficial] attention.

Those who don’t look for attention, are precisely the ones we should be giving our attention to. Those who are always looking for compliments or to be noticed, are often insecure and looking to overcompensate. What’s more likely is that they are ONLY concerned about their own happiness, they only act like they would be able to even consider yours. People who are content with their own self confidence and don’t look elsewhere for validation, shine from within and will add to your life. The last thing you need is to be a placeholder for anyone who is just seeking something anyone else can give. This doesn’t provide any sort of foundation for a solid relationship.

They can hold [and contribute thoughtful, intelligent] conversation.

Believe me - I know how important physical attraction is to a relationship. But, believe me when I say that I also know that it’s not the most important thing, when you’re talking long term. Anyone who truly keeps your attention, makes you excited to see them, or just talk to – every day – is one worth holding onto. An intelligent, well-spoken, witty, funny person with killer looks, granted is hard to come by – but, who are you to settle for less than you deserve? Nobody, that’s who.

They can be comfortable in any situation.

Let’s face it, when you’re dating somebody, you’re not alone with them all the time. It’s important to be able to live a full life with them by your side. This means family events, outings with friends, double dates, movie nights on the couch…Not to mention, the activities brought forth by similar interests – which you both should have! I’ve always used the rule of thumb that if you truly like a someone and feel comfortable bringing them to any social event and leaving them alone if you need to go talk to someone or grab a drink – then they gets major bonus points.

They don’t start petty arguments or feed off jealousy.

In a healthy relationship, two people should be able to work out their differences via mature conversation and discussion. This does not mean bringing up nonsensical past issues or dwelling on small events that they have been emotionally harboring, waiting for the right time to unleash. A mature person won’t throw the past in your face or use it as ammunition.

They encourage you to be your best.

Even the best accomplishments in life seem to lose their luster when there is nobody to share them with. Your significant other should be one of, if not THE first, people you want to tell exciting news to. Does your significant other get excited about things in your life, even if they don’t have any personal interest in them? Do they make you feel as if they stand behind you, and encourage you to chase your goals and dreams? If so, you have found a teammate worth holding onto.

Do they encourage you to look for your sunshine on a gloomy day (and every day).

Do you wake up every morning excited to talk to them? Or to kiss them on the forehead if you’re there together? Does seeing them name pop up on your phone during a rough day make you forget about all of your worries? Does being with them take you into your own world where nothing else matters? If you said yes to any of the above, hold on....

Do they take care of themselves?

I am all about giving in relationships. Personally, I love to give and do things. I believe if two people both feel that way in a relationship, it will be a success. Putting in extra effort does not have to be much. It can be something as simple as keeping your hair or nails done to look good. It’s no secret that sometimes the romance wears off of longer term relationships, but you should not let it. You both know what attracted you in the first place, even after a long time, taking care of yourself shows you care about keeping them around.

You can laugh together.

Seriously, how big is this one? Simple, but so important. Life can get you down. Work, bills, obligations – your relationship should not be something on that list. Your significant other should be one of your best friends who you can do anything with, and have fun doing it.

You can cry together.

Not everything is sunshine and rainbows. Times get tough, things get hard, and we all need a support system. Do you feel your support is reciprocated? If not then you need to find someone who understands that.

You have similar views for the future.

I know the future is way off. It’s a scary place, but it’s still there. If you’re in a solid, committed relationship, it’s important to understand where both of you see yourselves, and the relationship – going. If you do not talk about the future, what makes you think that you will will forget all about it and that your relationship will coast through time without it being an issue? The future of your life cannot be dictated by someone else, but it can be affected by them – and working together to find what makes you both happy in the long run, is key.


I’ve made posts in the past about qualities of a gentleman, as well as the differences between a ‘bad boy’ and a jerk. But, how does this all translate into how somebody acts while in a relationship? Anyone can lie to put across a great image, but it could simply be a cover for hidden shortcomings, or they could just be totally faking it to ‘get one up.’

A real person values more than just your looks.

Is every compliment about a different body part? It does not matter how creative they can be, if the sole focus is on how you look, or ‘talking dirty,’ see it as a red flag. A real person will value your personality, your kindness, your intelligence, and who you are as a person, in general. The things he makes you feel good about will be things that you control, not just results of getting lucky in the gene pool.

A real person will never be intimidated by your motivation.

Anyone who has goals, will want to be with a person who has goals for their own life too. They will never feel intimidated or threatened by anyone who goes after what they want. They will want to be part of a power couple, rather than a dictatorship. Be mindful of anyone who tries to keep you from pursuing your dreams.

A real person will have more interests than just you.

I don’t mean this in a negative way. You should, of course, be a priority in life – but everyone needs to have a private life as well. Interests, friends, hobbies, aspirations. If anyone works their entire life around you, it’s another red flag – relationships should be a great part of your life, but not encompass your whole life.

A real person will give you answers. (not the run around)

No matter how awkward or uncomfortable a situation is, a real person will approach it, and you, with respect. I have always felt that a mark of maturity is how you handle conflict, criticism, and less-than-ideal situations. A mature person will not dance around answers or make excuses. If there is something you two need to talk about, they will address it.

A real person is direct.

In addition to the last point – there will be no mind games or manipulation in your relationship. A mature person will be direct, to the point, and honest with you, and themselves and with kindness.

A real person will trust you.

As long as you haven’t betrayed their trust, a mature person will NOT be paranoid, or snoop around invading your privacy to make sure you’re not doing anything bad. They will have confidence in your relationship. Children project their own insecurities onto others, and like termites in a house, eat away at the foundation of what you have built.

A real person is cool, calm, and collected.

It should be understood that part of what comes with the territory of having a relationship, is dealing with them getting hit on. If you’re at the bar together, or if you are out with her friends, it goes without saying that either of you will get hit on every once in awhile. Instead of letting primal instincts prevail and behaving like an angry gorilla to scare off competition, a confident person will calmly make their position known, and understand that you’re still going home with him at the end of the night.

A real person will show you respect.

Nothing signifies an empty shell of a person more than someone who is disrespectful towards animals or children. A real person will treat you with the respect that you deserve, never force you to do anything you’re uncomfortable with, and never mistreat you. Be honest enough with yourself to walk away from any situation that is dangerous to you, physically or emotionally.

A real person will put effort into your relationship.

Children are generally apathetic and just look for one thing from a relationship. Mature people will do what it takes to cultivate happiness, both inside and outside of the bedroom. Mutual happiness the reward.

A real person will make you want to be the best version of yourself, without changing who you really are.

A mature person will naturally empower those around them. They will strive for greatness and therefore inspire others to strive for it as well. This not only includes friends and co-workers, but also significant others.

As Mark Twain said - Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

If you do have one of these people in your life, make sure they know they are appreciated.

lightworker activation

“How comfortable are you being ‘different’ from most people on this planet? How comfortable are you having NO organized belief system? How comfortable are you being ‘judged’ as silly, crazy or foolish when you speak of Love and Peace? How comfortable are you with other people’s ‘anger’? How comfortable are you ‘not fitting in’? How comfortable are you with being ‘alone’? These situations are extremely uncomfortable and /or frightening for most people. This is why ‘Awakening’ has been a relatively slow and challenging process on this planet. It takes incredible Courage to walk this path. However, once you’ve set yourself Free and stepped onto this ‘Road Less Travelled’, you can’t imagine living any other way. It’s simply DIVINE.” ∞

my report on UFOs in Chile

"We teach females that in relationships, compromise is what women do. We raise girls to see each other as competitors, not for jobs or for accomplishments— which I think can be a good thing— but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are. If we have sons, we don’t mind knowing about our sons’ girlfriends, but our daughters boyfriends? ‘God forbid!’ But of course when the time is right, we expect those girls to bring back the perfect man to be their husband. We police girls, we praise girls for virginity, but we don’t praise boys for virginity. And it’s always made me wonder how exactly this is supposed to work out because *laughs* the loss of virginity is usually a process that involves *laughs*… We teach girls shame. ‘Close your legs!’ ‘Cover yourself!’ We make them feel as though by being born female, they are already guilty of something. And so, girls grow up to be women who cannot say they have desire. They grow up to be women who silence themselves. They grow up to be women who cannot say what they truly think. And they grow up—and this is the worst thing we do to girls—they grow up to be women who have turned pretense into an artform. " —Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

the folly of our own ways

Art by: Rebecca Wang

"Pride of our ego, image, and heritage only breeds labels, labels breeds separation, separation breeds conflict, conflict breeds violence, so can we see how clinging to our image and heritage is the root of the fall of mankind? Why cannot we just BE humans, men and women without labels that divide us? Why must we assert our ego to the forefront and stomp on the ground to be noticed? As we remain blind to our own conditioning and fail to recognize that just being born 100 miles north or south would have changed who we are today. Yet those who are lost in their roles, are like the blindfolded walking on a tightrope, and if we scream too loud, they may get scared and fall. It is wise to just keep pointing the way, so that they too may discover truth on their own, for as they say, let the fool persist in their folly so that they may become wise!

When we look deeper into the matter, what we discover is that we are 'all' made of the same stardust that scatters throughout the night sky, as we all breath the same air and drink the same water, and the only separation between mankind is that which the mind creates inside. It really is no different from watching sports fanatics rooting for their own team, that same unconscious pride only creates conflict within themselves and others without their knowing. The amount of anger that can rise from a losing fan can sometimes drive one towards violence, as they are blind to the fact that it is only a game they are caught up in. Same goes with our daily life, for we get far too caught up in the game of culture and society, as many of us have lost the meaning of what IT means to truly be alive.

Looking around the world at all the fighting and conflicts, what we see is the spectrum of being at war with IT-self, but anyone with a rational mind can see that light cannot exist without darkness, black cannot exist without white, and anyone who thinks they can win a war has already lost the battle inside. The Chinese figured this out long ago, as the yin and yang go together in their ancient symbol, 'they' are not at war with each other, for the phoenix with us all would not be able to rise if there wasn't a dragon within us to burn away the dross of the false. We are trying to get to the root source of conflict and violence in the world and within our hearts, and opinions of the ego do not help in this matter, as the facts are only revealed to us when we look at 'what is' with a silent mind, for only then can we begin to see the folly of our own ways!" ~Alistar Valadez...

Project Q.U.E.E.N

i am so IN LOVE with this woman....

"When I started my music career, I was a maid. I used to clean houses. My mother was a proud janitor. My stepfather, who raised me like his very own, worked at the post office and my father was a trashman. They all wore uniforms and that’s why I stand here today, in my black and white, and I wear my uniform to honor them.
This is a reminder that I have work to do. I have people to uplift. I have people to inspire. And today, I wear my uniform proudly as a Cover Girl. I want to be clear, young girls, I didn’t have to change who I was to become a Cover Girl. I didn’t have to become perfect because I’ve learned throughout my journey that perfection is the enemy of greatness.
Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable." - Janelle Monáe

new video! :D

i had tons of fun doing all the research and writing this up. so much good stuff coming up! i'm excited

why is nature still illegal?

from the fb page Lastrealindians We're going to repost this because many do not understand that Industrial Hemp is not Cannabis. you can smoke hemp all day and you will not "get high"; if you smoke cannabis you will undergo certain psychological/physiological effects that may "get one high." Cannabis also has certain medical benefits with respect to cancer an glaucoma for instance. Hemp is the crop all of our Tribal Governments should be willing to go to jail in order to grow it and provide our homeland with a real sustainable, regenerative economy (the world needs to). LRI says nothing about and does not judge the ceremonial, medicinal, cultural or other use of any mind altering natural plant substance, that is not our place as 2leggeds to do that. The post is meant to empower our leaders to grow hemp as a way to defeat poverty, to provide our own food, clothing, shelter, energy, etc <~ all that is possible with industrial hemp. Hemp is the new Buffalo. We do not want our kids "getting high" ; we want to strengthen ourselves by all means.

another problem reservations face is nuclear contamination from testing and nuclear waste accidents, in 1979 the worst ever accident happened....ugh it makes me sick.... from wikipedia

The Church Rock uranium mill spill occurred in New Mexico on July 16, 1979 when United Nuclear Corporation's Church Rock uranium mill tailings disposal pond breached its dam.[1][2] Over 1,000 tons of solid radioactive mill waste and 93 millions of gallons of acidic, radioactive tailings solution flowed into the Puerco River, and contaminants traveled 80 miles (130 km) downstream to Navajo County, Arizona and onto the Navajo Nation.[2] The mill was located on privately owned land approximately 17 miles north of Gallup, New Mexico and bordered to the north and southwest by Navajo Nation Tribal Trust lands.[3] Local residents, who were mostly Navajos, used the Puerco River for irrigation and livestock and were not immediately aware of the toxic danger.[2] The accident released more radiation than the Three Mile Island accident that occurred four months earlier and was the largest release of radioactive material in U.S. history.[2][4][5][6] Groundwater near the spill was contaminated and the Puerco rendered unusable by local residents. The governor of New Mexico refused the Navajo Nation's request that the site be declared a federal disaster area, limiting aid to affected residents.[7] The event received less media coverage than that of Three Mile Island, likely because it occurred in a lightly populated, rural area.[8] Some scholars suggest there were elements of class and racism to the neglect as well, since it affected primarily poor Native Americans.[5] In 2003 the Churchrock Chapter of the Navajo Nation began the Church Rock Uranium Monitoring Project to assess environmental impacts of abandoned uranium mines; it found significant radiation from both natural and mining sources in the area

removing the radiation and healing the land should be a priority, but nobody wants to talk about this problem it seems. but if there is even a chance that hemp could remove radiation from the soil, why not try?

Orion’s Belt points to Sirius. Sirius is the brightest star in the nighttime sky according to some guy on fb Orion originally had 7 stars, the others were put there to hide knowledge.
Some say It represents the Egyptian equivalent of Chakras, or Glands, but my favorite is the 3rd eye controls the 4 elements of the body.

ever wonder why you always notice when its 11:11?

according to Richard Boylan, Ph.D.
The 11:11 Universal and Spiritual Laws of the Cosmos

Universal Law of Free Will
Spiritual Law of Freedom of Man

Universal Law of Change
Spiritual Law of Growth of Man

Universal Law of Movement and Balance
Spiritual Law of Strength, Health and Happiness

Universal Law of Innocence, Truth and Family
Spiritual Law of Protection of Family

Universal Law of Symmetry
Spiritual Law of Equality

Universal Law of Life
Spiritual Law of Choice

Universal Law of Light, Sound and Vibration
Spiritual Law of Intuition

Universal Law of Judgment
Spiritual Law of Karma

Universal Law of Nature
Spiritual Law of Protection of Man

Universal Law of Love
Spiritual Law of Healing

Universal Law of Perception
Spiritual Law of Future Sight

It may be noted that these Universal and Spiritual Laws, accepted and revered by all member civilizations of the Star Nations, are not couched in the “Thou shalt/not...” language of Human civil and religious laws. Rather, these Universal and Spiritual Laws may be seen as universally-valid, self-evident principles, grounded in natural law and the fundamentals of consciousness, and in every intelligent lifeform’s connection to Source.
The symbols of these 11:11 Laws were found etched into the structure of the starcraft that crashed at Roswell in 1947. I gave my photo of those symbols to Ihanktowan Dakota (Sioux) Chief Golden Eagle/Standing Elk. He took them into sacred lodge, asked guidance from the Tunkasilas, (Dakota word for the “Grandfathers”, spiritual guides from the stars), and learned that the symbols stood for the 11 Universal Laws and 11 Spiritual Laws that all Star Nations cultures accept as their common metaphysical/spiritual foundation.

adrenal burnout

some background information

Thousands of people suffer from constant fatigue, unrelieved by rest and sleep. This is the main symptom of adrenal burnout syndrome. Other symptoms may include a craving for sweets, low blood pressure and blood sugar, irritability and depression. Low energy impairs every system of the body. Secondary symptoms range from impaired digestion to infections. Toxic emotions accumulate with adrenal burnout. The world looks bad, people are evil, and a hopeless attitude is not uncommon.

The condition is also called adrenal hypofunction, adrenal exhaustion or adrenal insufficiency. Unlike fatigue, one’s energy does not return after a good nights rest. Burnout is a more serious derangement of the body’s energy system.

The adrenals are the major glands the body uses to respond to stress. Its hormones raise the blood sugar and blood pressure, and promote energy production. Adrenalin (or epinephrine) is used for emergencies. The longer-acting anti-stress adrenal hormones are cortisone and cortisol. Aldosterone, another adrenal hormone, retains sodium and increases the blood pressure. Related closely to the sympathetic nervous system, the fight-or-flight response it is called. When the adrenals become depleted, the body is unable to handle stress.

Most physicians do not diagnose adrenal burnout syndrome. Rarely, if enough tests are run, it may be called Addison’s disease, which doctors consider incurable. Recovery from adrenal burnout, however, is definitely possible. The condition affects both men and women, and even children as well. Some children are born this way and never experience plenty of energy.

Burnout may develop slowly or be caused by a single trauma. John F. Kennedy experienced burnout during World War II. A Japanese destroyer rammed his patrol boat late one night, killing most of the crew. He never recovered from the shock. For the rest of his life, he needed replacement adrenal hormones. If he had found the right practitioner, perhaps they would not have been needed.

Causes of Adrenal Burnout Excessive stress, an important cause of burnout, can be from many sources. Chemical toxicity and nutritional depletion are among the physical causes. Mental, emotional or spiritual stress may be a major factor. Financial, family or other stress may also contribute to burnout.

Any excessive stress can deplete the adrenals, especially when weakened by poor nutrition. Working too much or emotional stress are two common causes. Excessive stimulation, especially for children, is another cause. Fast-paced, high-stress, fear-based lifestyles are a sure prescription for adrenal burnout.

Other stressors in cities are noise and electromagnetic pollution. Cell phones, microwave towers and appliances like televisions, microwave ovens and computers give off strong electrical fields.

Nutritional Deficiencies are a common cause. When under stress, the need for nutrients is much greater. Carbohydrates, when excessive in the diet, stress the adrenals. Diets low in protein may also create deficiencies. Inadequate or poor quality water affects oxygenation of the tissues.

Most diets are low in nutrients required by the adrenals. These include B-complex vitamins, vitamins A, C and E, manganese, zinc, chromium, selenium and other and other trace elements. The reasons for this begin with how food is grown. Most food is grown on depleted soils. Processing and refining further deplete nutrients. Habits like eating in the car or while on the run further diminish the value derived from food. Also, allergic reactions to foods such as wheat and dairy products can damage the intestines and reduce the absorption of nutrients. Toxic metals and chemicals often play a large role in adrenal burnout. Everyone is exposed to thousands of chemicals in the air, the water and the food. Other sources are dental materials and skin contact with chemicals. Over-the-counter and prescribed medications add to the body’s toxic load.

Toxins may also be generated within the body due to impaired digestion. When food is not properly digested, it either ferments or rots in the intestines, producing many harmful substances that are absorbed into the body. Chronic infections, of dental and other origin, also contribute to the toxic load. In most people, the organs of elimination do not function at an optimal level. As a result, toxic substances slowly build up in the body, leading to adrenal burnout and many other health conditions.

Stimulants damage the adrenal glands. They whip the adrenals. Caffeine, sugar and alcohol are among the most common stimulants. Less obvious stimulants include anger, rage, arguing, hatred, loud music, the news and movies full of suspense. Vigorous exercise, sexual preoccupations and other thrills may also act as stimulants. Stimulant use, however, can also be a result of adrenal burnout. Stimulants are attractive to one in burnout to provide temporary energy. This is an appeal of the drug culture, both legal and recreational.

Unhealthy responses to stress are another cause of adrenal burnout. These include habits of worrying, or becoming angry or afraid. Don’t worry, be happy is a great prescription for adrenal burnout. This applies particularly to high-strung, nervous individuals and those with very active minds, as they are especially prone to adrenal burnout.

Many children today are born with weak adrenals due to their parents’ nutritional deficiencies. By age three or four, these children are in burnout. They are often sick, depressed and have difficulty in school.

Symptoms of Adrenal Burnout Low blood sugar and allergies result from low levels of cortisol. Joint and muscle pain are other common symptoms. Multiple chemical sensitivities is an extreme allergic condition associated with adrenal burnout. Low blood pressure and low body temperature may also result. Later blood pressure rises as toxic substances build up in the arteries and kidneys.

Elevated copper and low zinc related to adrenal burnout impair the immune system. Chronic infections may develop. The stage is also set for the development of degenerative conditions. Cancer, heart disease, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases are end-stage results of toxic accumulation and energy depletion. Often secondary to adrenal exhaustion are glandular imbalances, hyperthyroidism and more often hypothyroidism. The adrenal glands produce oestrogen and progesterone. They are the main source of these hormones after menopause. Premenstrual syndrome and hot flashes often have to do with weakened adrenal glands.

Depression and apathy are common in adrenal burnout. One may lose interest in friends, family and work. Unsure if there is energy to get through the day, anxiety may occur. Irritability is common as one is less able to handle even minor stress. Unfortunately, many with adrenal burnout function on anger and resentment. These act as adrenal stimulants, providing a negative energy with which to function. Most of the world, in fact, functions on the negative energy of anger.

Compulsiveness and OCD [Obsessive Compulsion Disorder] is associated with adrenal burnout. One may become addicted or very attracted to excessive exercise, sex, loud music or other forms of excitement. The unconscious goal is always the same, to stimulate the adrenals into activity.

When the adrenals are weak, copper builds up in the body. Elevated copper enhances emotions. Panic attacks, bipolar disorder, mood swings and schizophrenia are related to copper imbalance. As one’s energy level declines, other toxic metals build up as well. Mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic, beryllium and others contribute to hundreds of physical and emotional symptoms.

Myths about Burnout

Myth #1: Burnout is psychological.

Burnout is a breakdown of the energy system of the body. Vital minerals are depleted or burned out and replaced by toxic metals. Psychological stress may be a cause and burnout can affect one’s emotions and behaviour. However, burnout itself is biochemical. Recovery may involve improving emotions and dealing with psychological issues. However, it also involves rebuilding body chemistry because it is a physical condition as well.

Myth #2. People in burnout have no energy and cannot work.

Many in burnout hold full-time jobs. They may appear in good health. However, they are often tired or stressed. They may require stimulants in order to keep going. Some bury themselves in their work to forget how tired they feel.

Myth #3. Vigorous exercise is good for burnout.

Vigorous exercise can be attractive to those in burnout. Exercise temporarily makes them feel better. While it may provide a boost, in the long run vigorous exercise further exhausts their bodies. People in burnout need to reduce exercise, often to a minimum in order to conserve their energy and allow their adrenals to rebuild. Exercise requires energy and adrenal reserves that people in burnout do not have.

Myth #4. A vacation, a diet, or a nutritional supplement will cause recovery from burnout.

Most people never recover from burnout. Recovery requires a strong commitment to healing. A number of natural therapies are often required. Recovery takes at least several years. If one recovers faster, one was not in adrenal burnout.

Myth #5. Burnout occurs mainly in men. In fact, it is more common in women.

This is due mainly to lifestyle changes in women. Many women now work outside the home, and raise the children as well. Many are in single-parent homes or both parents work just to pay the taxes. Women have more sluggish oxidation rates to begin with, so burnout may be less apparent in women, but it is just as common or more so than in men.

Myth #6. Burnout only occurs in those in high-stress jobs.

Burnout occurs in all groups, regardless of occupation, income or educational level. In fact, many homeless people are burned out. This helps account for why they may give up hope or be incapable of holding a job or supporting a home.

Myth #7. Burnout occurs only in adults.

In fact, it is common today in children and even babies. Children are being nutritionally depleted and toxic as a result of the ill health of the parents. This can be measured with mineral analysis. Minimal brain dysfunction, chronic ear or other infections, crib death, failure to thrive, ADHD and anti-social behaviour may all be symptoms of burnout in children.

Myth #8. Burnout affects only physical health.

Burnout affects every area of life. Family and work are often affected. Relationships often suffer. One may lose interest in everyone and everything. There simply is not enough energy available for others or for activities beyond those required for survival. Friends, family and employers are often unaware of what is occurring, which only worsens the situation.

Myth #9. A hectic lifestyle causes burnout.

This may be one cause. However, a hectic lifestyle can also be a result of burnout. Excessive activity, overwork and a very busy life can be a way to stimulate one into action, a compensation for feelings of exhaustion. When such a person stops working and running around, they will feel just how exhausted and perhaps depressed they really are.

Myth #10. Overwork for years causes burnout.

This is possible. However, it can occur due to a single shock or just a few traumas that occur together. It may also not be related to any single trauma or activity. Often a combination of factors causes burnout. Whether one goes into burnout from an illness, accident, divorce, overwork or other stress depends very much on one’s ability to handle stress, rather than the absolute amount of stress.

Myth #11. Burnout is an overused term without a scientific basis.

Just because burnout doesn’t show up on x-rays or standard blood tests does not mean it is not real. Burnout can be measured and quantified using tissue mineral testing. The term is not overused. In fact it is greatly underused. A large percentage of the population is in burnout and it would be helpful if physicians understood it better, even if they have no cure.

Myth #12. Plenty of sleep will take care of burnout.

Unfortunately, this is not so. The body is unable to regenerate its energy during sleep. Waking up tired after 8-10 hours of sleep is a primary symptom of burnout. Like a dead battery, the body does not recharge itself during sleep. An interesting principle of health is that one can only regenerate during sleep in proportion to the energy one has. Those in burnout are overtired which interferes with the restorative power of their sleep.

Myth #13. Cleaning out toxins will take care of burnout.

The accumulation of toxins that occurs as the body can no longer remove them properly contributes to burnout. Exposure to toxic metals or chemicals can be an important factor in burnout. Eliminating them is helpful. However, energy is required to release toxins. If the energy system is weak, just fasting or detoxifying will not be enough. One must rebuild the entire energy system by balancing body chemistry and providing nutrients as well. A one-month or even six-month cleanse is nowhere near adequate. It can take a year just to replenish one mineral. For those in burnout, extreme detoxification programs such as fasting, raw foods or even chelating agents can be dangerous. This is because the body lacks the vitality to properly eliminate toxins, the eliminative organs are compromised and toxins may be redistributed in vital organs. A gentle, complete program of rebuilding and nourishing the body must accompany any efforts to eliminate toxins. In fact, as vitality improves, toxin elimination will proceed on its own.

Myth # 14. One will come out of burnout when one changes whatever factor or behaviour caused the burnout.

This is not how it works. As one goes into burnout, vital minerals become depleted and toxic substances replace them. They become part of the structure of enzymes and body organs and glands. Although one changes one’s diet, lifestyle, attitudes or behaviour, the toxins remain.

Often, burnout does not even set in until several years after a trauma, illness or injury as depleted and damaged cells proliferate. Though many change their diets and get over their traumas, most people never recover from burnout, or make only a partial recovery.

Myth #15. To recover from burnout just re-establish close communication with those who are close to you.

This is the prescription for burnout in one popular book. However, this is not enough. Communication is also difficult when one is in burnout. Burnout can greatly affect one’s attitudes, outlook and perceptions, making real communication very difficult. Low energy by itself can impair communication. Lack of understanding of the problem by partners, friends and others can also impair communication.

Myth #16. To get out of burnout, one needs to get back in touch with oneself.

This is not enough for recovery. Also, getting in touch is difficult due to toxins in the brain. These produce odd feelings, low self-esteem and negative attitudes that often accompany burnout. Many people in burnout become overly introspective, which can make them worse as they get in touch with all their problems.

Myth # 17. One can recover from burnout in matter of months.

It takes at least two years and often longer. Layers of adaptations and compensations must be undone. Each adaptation uses up energy so that when one begins correction, there is little energy to work with. This slows progress and is one reason correction takes several years.

Also, twenty or thirty minerals must often be replenished, a time-consuming process even assuming that one is ingesting all needed nutrients. Eliminating toxins that have become integral parts of the organs and glands also takes time, like rebuilding a house. If the process occurred too rapidly, one would become very ill.

If one recovers in months, one was not in burnout. Often, a small recovery can feel like a cure when it is not. Those in burnout need an overhaul, not a tune up. One needs to commit to doing whatever it takes and devoting a few years to healing. This needs to become one’s primary occupation or job for a while, allowing all other interests and activities to become secondary to the commitment to healing.

Myth #18. Burnout is not an important medical problem unless the stress of burnout causes high blood pressure or another symptom.

Burnout is degenerative exhaustion. It sets the stage for all degenerative diseases, because energy is a common denominator of health. All illnesses start with fatigue. The body is like a newer car with power steering, power brakes and power windows. The entire car stops working right when the power goes down. Burnout is a serious medical problem, although symptoms may be vague and unrelated to a specific disease.

Myth #19. Burnout is new phenomenon. In fact, burnout is as old as humanity.

It can even help understand the rise and fall of civilizations. Nations often change over time. Repressive traditions can in time lead nations into burnout. Constant wars as occurred in Europe can contribute to burnout. Toxic exposure like lead water pipes can contribute to burnout. Vegetarian diets or destructive religious ideas, as in countries like India, can be a factor. Oppressive economic systems can contribute in some nations.

The process can be cumulative because children born to burned out parents continue the pattern until the entire group goes into burnout. Melting pot nations like America have an advantage in this regard. New immigrants are often the more ambitious ones that are in better health and can help rejuvenate the population. Also, nations that emphasize freedom and individual rights allow people to devise better ways of coping and maintaining their health.

Recovery Recovery from burnout is certainly possible. It takes several years and usually requires a change in diet, improving one’s lifestyle, nutritional supplements, detoxification procedures and attention to one’s emotional and spiritual health. Addressing all these aspects is the way to assure success.

Diet Diet is an important factor for everyone. Eat protein with every meal. Eggs, natural meats and poultry are the best sources of protein. Toasted almond butter, goat cheese and nuts are other good sources. Avoid vegetarian diets. At lunch and supper, have three cooked vegetables. Rotate your proteins and your vegetables so you don’t eat the same thing every day.

You may have complex carbohydrates, but not wheat and spelt. Some people are also sensitive to gluten found in rye, barley and oats. Excellent starches are root vegetables (turnips, parsnips, rutabaga, carrots, onion and celery root), blue corn, brown rice, quinoa and others. Organic blue corn chips are fine.

I recommend everyone avoid wheat, spelt, sugar and cow’s milk dairy products except butter. If other food allergies are present, avoid these foods for a while. Avoid Isolated soy protein as it is of poor quality and contains many anti-nutrients. Reduce all sweets, eat very little fruit and avoid all junk food. Avoid all vegetable oils except for olive oil. Avoid all juices. They are too yin, most are too sugary and they can concentrate food toxins, upset blood sugar and weaken the adrenals. Use sea salt rather than table salt. Eat regular meals of excellent quality. Make the switch to organic food, whenever possible.

Excellent are green foods like kelp, barley grass powder and various coloured vegetables. Cooking with coconut oil is excellent and helps as well with weight loss, Candida albicans infection and energy. Drink high quality water, not from the tap. Distilled or spring waters are best. So-called drinking water or reverse osmosis are often not good as the filters used to make them may be dirty. Good quality water is an excellent investment in yourSelf.

Avoid all extreme diets. Your body needs a variety of nutrients. Restriction is not a good idea. In my experience, strict vegetarians will never recover from burnout. Follow good eating habits with regular, sit-down, relaxed meals.

Nutrients and Lifestyle for Recovery Food supplements are necessary. Kelp granules and nutritional yeast are excellent supplements for most people. They are rich sources of nutrients and kelp assists detoxification. Other nutrients that are very important for adrenal activity are vitamins A, B, C, E, pantothenic acid (Vit. B5) and adrenal glandular substance [extracts] . Calcium and magnesium are often needed. A digestive aid is always needed. I prefer pancreatin and ox bile. Zinc is frequently needed. Other nutrients may be needed depending on one’s level of toxic metals and other symptoms or deficiencies. I use hair mineral testing along with symptoms to assess these needs.

Rest and sleep are extremely important. Plan on nine hours of sleep for at least a few years. At times, more may be needed. Sleep is not a waste of time. There is no substitute for adequate rest. Also rest after meals, at mid-morning and mid-afternoon.

Gentle walking is beneficial. Vigorous exertion depletes the adrenals. Deep breathing and stretching, yoga or Tai chi do not deplete the body. Exercise to relax rather than to build muscles.

Cleaning up your environment assists health recovery. Replace toxic chemical products used around the house. Non-toxic alternatives are available for cleaning and as solvents. Pesticides and herbicides are often extremely toxic. Chemical hair dyes, shampoos and toxic skin care products need to be replaced.

Ventilate your house and purify the air if needed. Often very toxic is new construction. At work and at home avoid toxic exposure. Turn off televisions and computers when they are not in use. Sleep away from these appliances. Use cell phones only when absolutely needed.

Spend some time in the sun each day. Contrary to some propaganda, half an hour of sunshine daily will not hurt you. It is a nutrient and assists health in many ways. Sit in front of a window if it is too cold to go outside.

Detoxification Sauna therapy in particular will greatly enhance and speed up recovery. The best type is an infrared electric light sauna. One can put together a light sauna for under $300.00. Click to read about these and how to build or purchase a kit. If you are in adrenal burnout, use the sauna daily for no more than 30 minutes. Once or twice a week is excellent for prevention.

Other detoxification procedures are also very good. Coffee enemas are excellent to assist detoxification through the liver. Brush your skin whenever you bathe with a skin brush or loofah. Colonic irrigation and herbs for the liver and kidneys can help improve elimination.

Chiropractic, massage and reflexology can help reduce stress. Many natural therapies help realign and rebalance the body. Making these part of your lifestyle will enhance recovery.

Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Health Often it is necessary to grow out of burnout. A key to recovery from burnout is improving values and attitudes. They play an important part in every single case. Negative thinking is a bad habit that eventually tears down the body. Worry, fear and anger place added stress on the glands. Many techniques there are to help shift one’s thinking. Inspirational books and tapes, seminars and therapies there are many. There is no single answer right for everyone.

Searching for love outside of yourself depletes the body’s energy. Find the love inside yourself first, and you will find the right activities and companions. Burnout may result if you are awakening spiritually. Your present work and lifestyle may simply be inappropriate. Consider different employment or work arrangements if you suspect your stress comes from your work.

Relationships can cause a lot of stress. When one partner goes into burnout, the other often does not understand. Many couples become energetically incompatible. This has nothing to do with love or caring. It is important to listen to the wisdom of the body, and not be blinded by fixed ideas.

Many methods can help one relax and tune in to the wisdom of the self. In addition to traditional therapy, meditation and visualization exercises may be most helpful. Slowing down is often necessary if you live a busy life. It can take great courage to realize that by doing less you can accomplish more. By staying home more, you can relate better with others. By resting more, you can be more creative and productive. Change often requires overcoming guilt, shame and feelings of laziness.

For spiritual orientation, I highly recommend A Course in Mastery, A course in Miracles, Love Without End by Glenda Green, Journey Beyond Words and The Other Voice by Brent Haskell and The Real Self by this author. These and other books and tapes can help one rethink who am I, what is life about and why am I here.

The Blessing of Burnout Adrenal burnout is always a wake up call. Some area of life is out of alignment. For a deeper exploration of self, it is often the starting point. Rather than just existing as a programmed zombie, adrenal burnout may be the beginning of real living.
