15. 24 Hours.  Is there really 24 hours in a day?  What if I told you that that is actually not entirely true?

14. Gravity Glitch.  There are areas of the earth that because of their shape there is actually a different amount a gravity.  Such as around Hudson Bay in Canada.

12. Ocean Salt.  Did you know that there is enough salt in the ocean to cover all of the land on earth with 500ft of salt?

11. Rocks Can Walk.  There are rocks that literally scoot across the flat ground.  These aren’t little rocks either, you totally have to check this out.



10. Twin Planet.   There is a lot of evidence that suggests that the Earth had a smaller twin that collided with it at one point.  Is that what formed our moon?

9. Heat, Can we survive without the sun?  Because of the heat from the core we may indeed be able to survive for quite some time without the heat from the sun.  Check out this video for more info!

8. Exploding Lakes.  The earth has lakes that can explode toxic gases into the surrounding area that can kill people and animals instantly.

images7. Unexplored Oceans.  Did you know that we have only explored 10% of our own ocean?  So when people tell you that mermaids don’t exist they really have no way of knowing for sure!

4. Earth Isn’t Round.  The earth is not a perfect sphere, in fact around it middle it almost has a gut…

3. Underwater Gold.  The Oceans of the world are full of gold.  The only downside is that it is spread out in tiny flakes and would take a very long time to gather enough to make it work the effort.

10 Recurring Dreams and What They Mean

Do you ever have really, really strange dreams?

I have had more than I can count.  But the dreams that really demand my attention are the ones that happen over and over.

Recurring dreams demand more of my attention, than a dream I only had once, often because they are scary or uncomfortable. In fact, most of the recurring dreams on this list below might be more accurately described as nightmares. Perhaps this is because scary dreams are more memorable. They become a more effective way for your subconscious to get your attention about something going on in your life.

flying-dreamEvents and emotions in your waking life trigger your dreams. If you repeatedly have the same dream, your subconscious is trying to send you a message symbolically. Fortunately, there are a lot of online resources available to help you figure out what your dreams mean, including extremely detailed dream dictionaries.

There are also online communities that allow you to share your dreams in forums for interpretation and discussion. You can even use the discussion boards to connect with people who have similar dreams and receive free advice from various experts, ranging from professional dream analysts to psychics.  But in the end the most important guide is what the dream means to you.

Bad Dreams Are Good?

According to a lot of the material out there, once you’ve received the message your dream is sending, it goes away. However in my person experience the reoccurring dreams fade when i resolve the issue they are showing me. If you take the time to think about how it relates to your life and act on it, you can correct the problem and you’ll never have the dream again.  Well until you need it again, of course.  Lucid dreaming is another remedy. In this case, you realize you are dreaming and then take control of the action – changing the experience or the outcome. If lucid dreaming doesn’t work for you, you can also revisit your dream while you are awake, perhaps in meditation, face what is happening and resolve the issues.

Check out this video below about the Top Ten Recurring Dreams!

10. Trapped
picture-5-99. Excuse Me, Where’s the Washroom?
8. Drowning Dreams
7. Flying

How To Use The Chakras In Every Day Life

Ahh the chakras… 

When you think of the chakras, what comes to mind?

Every inch of this topic has been explored to the core in the Spiritual community for some time now. It’s important we remember that the chakras are much more than just representations.

They are physical energy centers along our body that keep us balanced with who we are.

Examples of this are always playing out in the physical:

Talking over everyone at a party? Too much Throat.

Coming off as a bit arrogant or egotistical? Too much Solar Plexus.

When we understand the implications of each chakra, we can practically apply the specific energies of each one  to find balance in our daily, physical interactions with each other and with ourselves.



Starting with the root. The root is the most physical out of all the chakras. It deals with basic survival needs like food, shelter, to things like money and comfort.

This chakra is fulfilled if your surroundings are pleasing to be in and you feel safe in your living situation. If you’re struggling with an inflow of resources, it has a direct correlation to feelings of security and what you’re putting your focus on.root_chakra_by_rebelbam-d5g04xe

Since this chakra has the most to do with physicality, manifesting it’s energies is a constant flow that can be seen as buying groceries, paying bills, cleaning, etc.

If you are able to keep on top of your societal duties, you are bringing forth the root’s energy.

Practicing this chakra can be as simple as taking care of your responsibilities and making sure you basic living needs are always met.


The sacral deals with feelings, having the right to fully immerse yourself in your emotions. We are taught that expressing too much emotion is being overly sensitive or dramatic.

Coming from the sacral is knowing that theres a reason you feel how you do, and that its always okay.

Our society is quick to dismiss what we label as ‘irrational’ thoughts or emotions, when they are really just symptoms of a core issue. Emotions can act as a guidance system for the core of our feelings. The sacral energies are interconnected with intimacy.

Practicing this chakra on the physical level can look like, first, allowing yourself to fully feel your emotions. Don’t deny or distract yourself from the feelings. They are incredibly real and valid even when we are told otherwise.

imagesHaving open communication with your partner about your sexual exploration is manifesting the sacral energies.

Having a safe, open dialogue about your sexuality and desires is practicing bringing this energy forth.

It’s something that’s very difficult for some people, and no big deal for others.

If you find yourself struggling with this chakra, feel your emotions down to the core to find where they really stem from.

Take the time to explore what you’re feeling and know that it’s always valid.

Solar Plexus

Out of all the chakras, the solar plexus is currently the one I’m most focused on. As I grow into who I am, I find myself slipping between subtle feelings of powerlessness and self doubt.

To be fully myself is to know I’m coming from the heart, so anything I say isn’t filtered through lack of confidence.

On the physical level, coming from the solar plexus looks like knowing what you need to say and powerfully speaking your truth. It’s having the drive to create new projects and confidently manifest ideas, no matter what anyone else says.

One way I’m trying to practice confidence through sending a message to a girl I went to high school with. At the time, I hadn’t learned to properly understand my emotions so I was, for lack of a better word, mean.url

My 16 year old self wasn’t particularly nice to this girl; and now I’m finding myself extremely compelled to send her a message.

She publicly talks about her struggles and depression so I felt like I should just write her a nice message and see if she’s interested in some ideas within spirituality.

I still haven’t sent the message because I don’t have the confidence to just do it. I’m scared of a lack of response or a response that would be best described as “wtf”.

I know no matter what, if I’m being authentic and trying to uplift her, then there’s nothing I could do wrong.

Practice this chakra through doing something that takes confidence. If your intention is pure, then no matter what you do it is coming from a space of wanting to help.



Coming from the heart is understanding another person; for they are you.

It is acting compassionately and having real empathy for others. It is our innate state of being but it’s something thats pushed out of us from an early age.

The heart is the merge from the lower chakras to the higher ones, so physically acting out the energies start to happen on a emotion level.

Coming from the heart is tapping into the feelings of your peers to feel their pains, fears and traumas, and see them as a mirror of your own. We are all reflection of each other and so are our issues and experiences.images-1

Practicing this on physical level can look like having compassion for someone when you’re in an argument for instance.

If you are able to take yourself out of the situation and view it from a neutral, third party position, then you can see the real reasons behind the argument.

A lot of the time those reasons don’t have to directly do with us.

There are always multiple layers to communication and when we can see through the heart, we can distinguish those layers and see the core of the issue.

If you can develop a real compassion for how your peers are feeling, regardless of your relationship to them, then you are physically channeling the energy from the heart chakra.



The throat is all about expression. It can be through verbal communication, expressing yourself through art or projects, body language, etc.

Once you have the confidence and are coming from the heart, expression is simple. It is the most authentic you coming forth to add your voice to the collective. It is the expression of your truth that adds to the whole of the universe.

What this can look like on the physical is quite vast.

When you work on all the lower chakras, the throat chakra is the expression of all your accumulated knowledge. It’s being able to pour your heart into something you love doing, and expressing that with the world.throat_chakra__vishuddha__by_rebelbam-d6epyfr

When you have practiced confidence, the throat chakra is the action of expressing what you’d like to share.

The more stable we are in the lower chakras, the better the foundation is for stabilizing the higher ones.

If you are encompassing the energy of the lower chakras through the throat chakra, your ability to express yourself will be genuine and fulfilling.


Third Eye

The third eye is seeing through your heart. It is the trusting in your intuition and knowing the knowledge that you receive is always what you are meant to know at that time.

A way this manifests on the third dimension is through the ability to truly see people for who they are. It’s the ability to see through the shield we put up, and understand why we are who we are.

When you’re communicating with someone and you can tell they are lying or holding something back, that’s when you can practice with the third eye chakra.

It’s having the awareness to sense the truth, and bring your own insights forth.

images-2The third eye is putting the pieces together yourself that might explain why someone is acting ‘not themselves’.

When we listen intently and see the pattern of the possibilities that answer our questions, that’s when we practice with the energy of the third eye.

It’s having the knowledge to see beyond language to really understand what someone is saying.

Ask them specific questions to get a specific answer that further propels the pattern of understanding.




The crown is the accumulation of all the chakras energies.

It is seeing the big picture and all the details that come with creation.

It is merging your consciousness with higher aspects of yourself to bring forth all the knowledge available to you.

When you combine the practical lessons learned from all the chakras, the crown is blending all the energy together.

It is being in motion with who you are living your truth. It’s the ability to bring information down into your consciousness and apply them.

th2_mp65You are no longer telling the world who you are, you are showing it through example.

Through your actions you show the world the impact you’d like to make.

The crown is the mixing of all the ingredients you’ve thrown together in the salad of life.

The more you strengthen the and integrate the connection we all posses to our higher intelligence, the more insight you bring into this dimension.

Physically manifesting the crowns energy is to have an inner knowing on what to do in your life.

It’s being able to see the possibilities ahead of time and seeing how all the intricate details connect and create this world.


When we can practically apply the lessons that each chakra holds, it brings spirit and science together. It’s showing through tangible, concrete evidence that we can channel each energy center into the physical.

Once we can merge all the chakras and the experiences that come with each one into a whole, thats when we truly align ourselves with who we are.

Start today looking for ways to make your dream a reality.  Look for local groups doing that you want to do.  Synergy with others will help make things happen faster.  If there is no one in your area start doing research online and invite your friends and family to start a local group.

3. Do it for Everyone even those you dont agree with.  No matter what people believe they are apart of this world and should be helped.  We want to spread love and awareness but the best way to do that is through example.

4. Volunteer a few hours a month to change.  Even if you only have a few hours to spare a month start becoming the change that you want to see in this world.

Alchemy – Sacred Secrets Revealed

alphonse elric-edward elric-fullmetal alchemist

Much of Alchemy is misunderstood and shrouded in mystery within magical and fraternal orders, it is our goal to unravel some of the aspects which remain hidden behind conventional history.

First of all what is alchemy?


thoth by benu h-d38krei


The medieval forerunner of chemistry, based on the supposed transformation of matter. It was concerned particularly with attempts to convert base metals into gold or to find a universal elixir.” -Google

Many of the great minds of history studied and practiced Alchemy.  It was responsible for sacred knowledge, sacred geometry, science, chemistry, medicine, healing, enlightenment, spirituality, and so much more.

Much of the history of Alchemy is scattered and viewed as only the science of attempting to changing regular metal into gold.  Although that practice was probably attempted on the physical level, Alchemy has higher symbolic lessons about enlightenment and the transmutation of the soul.

The study of alchemy is as much a spiritual practice as it is a scientific study.  

Check out this 8 video playlist with the history and teachings of the hidden Art & Science of Alchemy!


It appears to me that the union of Spirit & Science has been going on for a very long time.  Perhaps as we study alchemy symbolically through our meditations and apply the teachings to our soul journey we will begin to transmute ourselves into balanced beings on all levels.

The Truth About Dishonesty

We like to think of ourselves as good honest people and many of us that recognise our weaknesses in this area are honestly striving to be better each day.  What does the role of forgiveness and starting each day with a new slate have on our ability to stop rationalizing and begin being honest?

Are you more honest than a banker? Under what circumstances would you lie, or cheat, and what effect does your deception have on society at large?

Check out this interesting animation where these ideas are explored and they discuss a way that we can shift society into a better world.

It is really interesting in this  video how once the people were reminded of morality they began to regulate themselves.  It didn’t matter if they were religious or not, everyone would shift.

Sometimes when we look in the mirror of life we realize that we arent perfect and that we let things slide or ignore the things we do that affects people around us.  It can be a really uncomfortable feeling, trust me, no one likes guilt.

dp1894785What seems to help is a daily or weekly practice that reminds us of what we want to become and inspires us to start again new.  Maybe your ritual is your daily shower, where you literally feel washed clean all over again.  Perhaps for you it is a once a week meditation in nature where you reflect on your life.  There are truly endless activities and reminders we can place in our path to remind us of our desire to become better.

What are your tricks?  What do you think about honesty in society?  Do you feel that we can start taking steps today to begin correcting the cultural dishonesty?  Let us know in the comments below.
