The world around us is a work of art, every country acting as a canvas for eye to see. In this video, we’re going to take a look at 10 places from around the world that are just so beautiful and extraordinary that you must first visit them yourself in order to appreciate its true beauty.

10. Hitachi Seaside Park In Japan

Hitachi Seaside Park In Japan

Ibaraki Japan is home to one of the most beautiful beds of flowers in the world. Covering a vast expanse of approximately 190 hectares or 470 acres is one of the most magnificent sights of tulips in the world.

Baby blue eyes also grow in abundance here, especially during the spring months when some 4.5 million bloom each year.

This serves as a great tourist attraction for anyone visiting Japan. Cycling trains also surround the property along with a Ferris wheel for any of the young ones who are tired of staring at fields of flowers.

Bonn Germany’s Cherry Blossom Street

Visiting Bonn Germany’s ‘Cherry Blossom Avenue’ is an unforgettable and breathtaking experience.

It is an easy five minutes’ walk from Beethoven’s home, another spectacular sight to see for fans of the arts. During the 1980’s, the city planted these ornamental Japanese trees on both sides of the narrow way also known as Heerstraße.

Each year, often around mid-April, millions of pink flower buds appear on the previously barren trees. Continue reading

Science: What Your Eye Color Reveals About You

The eye is your window to the universe.  We all come into this world with these super intricate biological cameras in our head which somehow translate photons of light into a 3-dimensional image in front of us.  It’s one of the marvels of the human body.

We often take for granted how lucky we are to have eyes to see.  Around the world, about 39 million people are blind and roughly 6 times that many have some kind of vision impairment.  If you are reading this right now, you are blessed.

Aside from being a wonder of nature, the eye is also fascinating because of how much it can reveal about a persons interests, personality, skills, and history.

Your life is too short to be committed to something that makes you feel miserable. You ought to spend all of your work and play in a position of contentment.

V. Do not pursue love in hopes of fulfilling a self-love deficit. It is a wonderful feeling, but it is only a bandaid when it comes to the true fulfillment that self-love brings.

Are you a “Heyoka” Empath?

An Empath is a person who has the ability to understand the emotional state of another individual.  There are many different types of Empaths and many levels of gifts and abilities.  It’s one thing to be an empath, it’s another to be a Heyoka.  

heyoketricksterFor the Heyoka Empath, there is little available information and yet is the most powerful type of Empath.  Heyoka or “Sacred Clown” is a Native American term and has been loosely translated to mean “Fool or Clown”.

This translation does not give justice to the true meaning of the term.  To say, to act in a manner that is different, backward, opposite of normal, gives us a clearer understanding.

The spirit of a Heyoka is the Great Mirror.  When you connect to a Heyoka, what you see in them will show you what you need to work on to evolve spiritually.  The Heyoka’s mirror is one of emotion, for however you react to them emotionally is their guidance to reflect back to you.

For example, after being with one you may feel anger, feeling them to be arrogant yet the Heyoka’s mirror is showing you your need to be humble.  Or you may feel great love, again the Mirror is showing you the path of self-love. Continue reading

The 10 Healing Truths Of the Soul

As I was researching and writing my first metaphysical novel, I was also working on myself, trying to prove that healing from trauma was possible. My intent was to seek and find healing truths––be they from ancient wisdom teachings, modern medicine or my own inner epiphanies––and share my discoveries through my characters in a suspenseful story that was both entertaining and enlightening. 

God, the Infinite Source of All That Is, is within you

ascension777777777777777777777God (or if you prefer Great Spirit, Almighty, Higher Power, the Infinite or you fill in the blank) is not just up in the sky, in nature, all around us, or found only in a specific religion, church or synagogue. “The Kingdom of God is within you.”

Being aware of and understanding this Truth is so important that Jesus said to “Seek it first and all else will be added to you.”

When you truly connect with and internalize this Truth, you will be astounded. You will learn who you truly are and what your life purpose is.

In my experience, it’s the road back to freedom, the most important “secret” not only for healing, but also for wholeness, happiness––everything. Therefore, it’s No. 1 on my list. Definitely worth repeating.

The Kingdom of God is within you

Your consciousness is your awareness, understanding and knowledge of Truth in the present––the eternal now. Through your consciousness, you connect to the part of you that is God and All That Is, including the fulfillment of all your desires.lovehand

This God-part has been called I AM Presence, Christ Self, God Self, Higher Self, True Self and the like. But no matter what you call it, it’s the divine all-powerful God-part of you that sees and creates only the greatest, grandest and most perfect life filled with Love, Peace, Joy, Beauty, Health, Harmony, Right Relationships, Freedom and Abundance in Abundance.

The closer we get to uniting consciously and fully with it, the more of life’s joys, secrets and solutions are revealed to us from within, and the more our lives are uplifted and fulfilled with our greatest desires.

We get closer to the God Self through meditation

In meditation and our present awareness of the God Self within, we are able to quiet the busyness of the mind and consciously go into the silent now, where all possibility exists and your God Self’s “still small voice” can be heard. Continue reading

10 Interesting Facts About Ancient Egypt

If there’s anything that the film “The Mummy” taught us about Ancient Egypt, it’s that you don’t want to mess around with their curses. There is plenty about the ancient civilization that would intrigue and delight us, though, and we are bringing ten of these wondrous facts to you.

10. The Great Pyramid of Giza

The Great Pyramid of Giza

Though each pyramid of Egypt is amazing in its own right, The Great Pyramid of Giza stands to be the largest in the world – that is so long as you are not accounting for volume, as the Cholula Pyramid in Mexico beats Giza in that aspect by about 1,000,000 cubic yards.

Giza, however, was built 230 meters or 755 feet long and 146 meters or 479 feet high as the final resting place for the King Khufu. The massive structure took over 20 years to complete and it is estimated that it took 2 and a half minutes to set each of the 2 million limestone blocks in place.

The pyramid’s interior is made up of three burial chambers, with only one at the center of the pyramid being inhabited. King Khufu rests at the center of the pyramid, accessible only by an 8 meter or 26 foot high Grand Gallery.

9. Egyptian Mummification was an Elaborate Process

Egyptian Mummification was an Elaborate Process

Thought to ensure safe passage into the afterlife, the process of mummification followed a very specific process. First, the body is transported to the ‘ibu’, or where the body is purified with palm wine and water from the Nile.

All internal organs are removed via precise surgical methods and placed inside canopic jars designed after an Egyptian god. With the organs removed, the body is dried out then covered with oils before being wrapped. The wrapping process was quite involved with the arms, legs, fingers, and toes being wrapped individually at first.
