This short Music Video explains the universe in visual poetry!

Do you like music? Animations about the universe? What about Zirconium Pants? Then this video is for you!

Take a breath and make whatever preparations you need to to slip into an epic trance, because you’re about to go on a journey.

Some additional information on this video:

An experimental animation by Tim Halloran to the song ‘Ruler of Everything’ by Tally Hall. Tim Writes: I have arranged a series of images and symbols that combined with the lyrics of the song will encourage you to contemplate the meaning. What is going on here?

A Hovercar that works using the magnetics of the earth!

Would it be possible to use the magnetics of the earth with modern mag-lev technology to create a fully functional magnetic hovercar?

A concept coming out of china seems to suggest it is possible. Take a look!

hovercar2

Now of course the biggest challenge to overcome will be the fact that this concept would only work in that particular area in china, given that it’s based off of the magnetics of the minerals in the ground.

Nevertheless, i’m sure humans could come up with something (magnetic asphalt maybe? Magnetized Solar Freaking Roadways? Possibly…).

What do you think? Let us know in the comments!

A New Paradigm of Math and Numbers

This morning I was sent a video that kind of sort of really blew my mind. A simple video entitled “Chinese Multiplication” (though rumor has it that this methods origins are Japanese), maybe you’ve seen it floating around you Facebook here or there. This video is mindblowing, mainly because it opened up my mind to a radical new concept about how numbers work.

numberjumbleKnow of course – that there is in fact a logical explanation for the whole thing which (if observed by itself) would probably fit inside the same old paradigm of mathematics that we are all familiar with… But the other side of the coin, the female side that is a little more creative and colourful – if properly explored, can dramatically alter your perception of numbers, numerology and the whole mathematical spectrum.

But how does that happen?

For the average person, numbers are thought about as a very linear thing. From 0 to Infinity on either side of the spectrum. A way to count things or list things, or a representation of how many dinero’s you owe to any number of people or organizations.

But consider for a moment that numbers are not what we think they are. What if numbers were not linear, but fluid, moving, changing. A representation more of a flow than a static list that is fixed in place for all eternity? A spiral, perhaps? Or the waves on top of water might also be a good way to express it.

Now that we’ve opened up your right brain with some new wispy concepts of a new mental paradigm, let us jarr open that left hemisphere of yours with that video i mentioned from before – a way of looking at mathematics that you have likely never seen before. If you can wrap your head around this idea, not just HOW to do it but WHY it works, your understanding of numbers will never be the same.

This concept of mathematics being less “linear” than we previously thought is also incredibly related to String Theory, as well as the Trion-Re theory of Light – that says that although light appears to move in straight lines, the core shape is a solid with wavelike properties. This is how Light behaves like a particle and a wave at the same time, just as we are beginning to explore in our understanding of numbers.

To learn more about that, check out this video below,  and let the discussion in the comments roll!

Top 10 Ways to Build Relationships with your Crystals

Throughout the internet and the bookstore there are plenty of brilliant and informative resources about crystals.  

 While there are many authoritative voices to be heard, I will suggest to you some practices and perspectives that will lead you into enriching relationships with crystals rather than giving you definitive rules or how-to’s. This is because I believe that if you can embrace the basic nature of the fantastic and very loving kingdom (or queendom, whichever you fancy!) of minerals and crystals you will have your own unique and meaningful experiences that will be perfectly tailored to you and whichever marvelous crystal beings happen upon your path. Enjoy.

1. Acknowledge that they are living beings: Nikola Tesla said, “In a crystal we have clear evidence of the existence of a formative life principle, and though we cannot understand the life of a crystal, it is nonetheless a living being.” He was right. Embrace that. Crystals and minerals are a form of life and are conscious living beings. They are not tools to be used, but rather, allies to be partnered with. While the organizational groupings within the mineral kingdom are useful for understanding basic characteristics of crystals types (i.e. rose quartz is for the heart, amethyst is for the third eye), each individual crystal has had its own unique evolutionary process, comes from its own unique location, has a unique vibrational signature, and ultimately has its own autonomous purpose for existing. This is exciting. It means that 100 different quartz crystals, for instance, are 100 totally different potential lessons, types of medicine, etc. Be open to that.

2. Put them in your mouth: Yes, you heard me right. Put them in your mouth. Have you ever been in a crystal shop and seen a table full of bowl upon bowl of glittering brightly colored tumbled stones and crystals? They almost look like fruit or candy. I have had many people tell me they want to put crystals in their mouth. My suggestion is: DO IT! Why? Because your tongue is a highly sensitive organ capable of communication and information transfer (think of eating, speaking, kissing, etc.) Because of this, when you put the stone in your mouth, a natural interaction will occur whereby you can learn a lot about the stone and it can communicate freely to you. Listen. See how it makes you feel, what imagery you may get, if you feel more focused, etc. As an example, when I am performing rituals, doing healing work, or meditating I will often put my tumbled moonstone in my mouth and I find that it heightens my openness and my intuition. The other important reason this works is because the energy of the crystal is absorbed by your saliva, which you then swallow and ingest. I Will explain more about this phenomena in tip number 4. Before you put a stone in your mouth make sure it is physically and spiritually cleansed. You can find any number of ways to cleanse crystals online. (Disclaimer: not all stones are safe to put in your mouth, some stones are water soluble and will break down. If in doubt please check This List First and understand that I am primarily referring to tumbled stones because they have no sharp edges. Please don’t start gnawing on a delicious looking quartz point.)

The Best ENERGY Drink of Your Life

Article shared with permission from Author Jenna Barrington.

I had the urge to write about this daily habit that takes 10 minutes or less, but can have an incredible influence on you and your family’s health!

green

Right now in our world there are a lot of people who would love to feel better about their bodies. Studies show that a good portion of both men and women are unsatisfied with themselves or struggle with self-confidence. This is no secret, and it is apparent that as a society we are searching for better answers than painful dieting and hours in the gym. 

I was first introduced to the idea of green smoothies by Robyn Openshaw when I was a teenager.  I struggled a lot with body image during adolescence, and more than wanting to feel beautiful I also wanted to feel healthy. So I was always looking for the secrets to having a body I felt confident walking around in!

The idea is you find the right blend of fruitsveggies, and greens to throw into a blender that make a delicious smoothie and a powerhouse nutrient-rich boost for your body! The possible and proven benefits to drinking a green drink on a daily basis are awesome!

  • green3Weight loss
  • Mood enhancement
  • Natural detox and cleanse
  • Immune support/boost
  • Huge percentage of daily need for vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants
  • ENERGY increase that lasts
  • Fiber that you don’t get from juice
  • You feel ‘light’ verses ‘heavy’
  • Happy cells!!

Green smoothies are great at anytime during the day, but are particularly excellent for breakfast. Our body goes through natural cycles  throughout a day where it focuses respectively on these three processes: Elimination, Appropriation, and Assimilation. In the morning we are typically in elimination mode and our body is focusing on releasing toxins and cleansing. 

imagesEating a heavy breakfast that is cooked can often be counter-productive to this cycle. Think of how it feels if you’re trying to clean the kitchen and before you’re done someone comes in and starts pulling out  food to make a big meal.  It would definitely slow you down or maybe even stop you from cleaning completely. Our body is the same way.

Our body responds the best to living and easily digestible foods in the morning. Living food means it is raw (uncooked) and is thus still full of enzymes and nutrients that aid digestion and fuel your body.

Convinced to give smoothies a try? Let’s address some common hesitations for those that need a push!

Tastes nasty?

The first time I made a green smoothie it was disgusting. I didn’t blend it well so it was chunky and I was a little too ambitious on the percentage of greens that I added.  In general we are used to overly-sweet food, and starting off your smoothie habit with too many veggies can cause you (and your family victims) to tank before finishing the first glass. Luckily our taste buds adapt over time. Try starting with 20% veggies and 80% fruit. Then slowly change it until you’re eventually drinking 50/50. Baby steps!

catCan’t get over looks and texture?
 
I would recommend getting a good blender.  For example try a Blendtec. They are FANTASTIC. Your smoothies will feel like Jamba Juice.  But let’s be real, a good portion of us don’t have that kind of money to throw around just yet.  But don’t let that stop you from changing you life.  Any blender will do the job. Putting the veggies in and blending them for a bit first can help to get rid of chunks making them easier to drink. 
 
Bored?

Now that I’ve got a spouse to please, I’ve put a lot more energy into VARIETY. Don’t get stuck on one recipe. Try new things! Mix new colors! If you make your family drink something that tastes too weedy one day, make a really delicious one the next day. Find your favorites and have fun getting creative.

Ascend Academy: Way of the Sentinel pt. 1

spiritual-science

The planet we live on is a living organism.  The trees are it’s lungs, the streams are it’s veins, and whether we realize it or not, our bodies are apart of a shared field of consciousness that contains all the native beings who reside here.  The physical Earth and it’s biosphere are the body or feminine aspect of this field of consciousness.  All of our collective consciousness is linked through this grid.

We are one with the Earth just as we are one with the Universe.  In the Way of the Sentinel, we seek to explore and strengthen this connection with the Earth, so we may use it as a spiritual foundation to continue growing towards a more universal understanding. Continue reading
