Justice Or Just Us?

Some might question how exactly this is “Spirit Science”… So before I go any further, I’ll explain. “In the simplest sense, I wish to change the world. Revolution of light and colour, healing, transformation, spirit cities, people working together – global realization of Christ Consciousness.” – Jordan

I once asked Jordan what his original intent was when he began his spiritual journey and that is what he said. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, lets move forward! Continue reading

How to Communicate Through Silence

The truth is, silence plays a crucial role in just about every encounter we make with other humans.

For starters, it can move the conversation along.

Conversation_(5556628632)

First dates, business meetings and intense idea proposals – these are all instances in which silence can be almost painful.

Why? Because it leaves room for thought. It forces one party to say something that moves the conversation along.

This is only as awkward as you make it. It’s not the worst thing in the world to leave a few seconds of silence in a conversation in order to see what the other person has to say.

According to research, four seconds is all it takes to build the tension you want.

Silence can also make it clear that you disagree or are feeling hostile towards the speaker. Continue reading

9 Activities Linked to a Longer Life

UCLA biologists have found a gene that can slow the aging process in the entire body when activated in specific organ systems.  While working with fruit flies, these scientists activated a gene known as AMPK that is an important energy sensor in cells; which gets activated when cellular energy levels are getting low.

dna_2759155b“AMP-activated protein kinase—an energy sensor that regulates all aspects of cell function. AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is a sensor of energy status that maintains cellular energy homeostasis.” – D. Grahame Hardie

In the study scientists found that increasing the amount of AMPK in fruit flies’ intestines increased their lifespans by about 30 percent.  This puts them living around 8 weeks instead of the average 6 weeks.

This is like the average person who lives to be almost 80 to around 104 years.   What is also interesting is that not only do the fruit flies live longer but they were healthier as well.

Now imagine if we applied this genetic technique to someone who is already supposed to live to be over 100 years old?

There is a whole group of people, known as Centenarians, that have lived to be over 100 years old. We have found a short documentary about two Supercentenarians, from the Spice Mountains of South Western India who have lived to be over 110!  Check it out below!

If you found that interesting there are rumors that a man in China lived to be around 250 years old! Li Ching Yuen was an herbalist who practiced Qigong and said his secret to long life was to possess the following traits in your life:

  • Tranquil mind
  • Sit like a tortoise
  • Walk sprightly like a pigeon
  • Sleep like a dog

In addition to that list here are 9 Activities that are linked to a longer life!

© Copyright 2010 CorbisCorporation1. Being Spiritual–  Having some sort of spiritual practice or belief has been linked to longer lives.  You don’t have to be a specific religion or even believe in God to qualify for this category.  Having a reverence for life and believing in something more than yourself is enough to enjoy the benefits of a longer life.

2. Health or Healing knowledge– As you heard in the video above both of our Supercentenarians were known for their knowledge and ability to heal others.  Perhaps the knowledge of healing isn’t only for ourselves.  Perhaps science will find a spark of longevity in those who take the time to ease the suffering of others.

What does Waking up Really Mean?

What is waking up?  How do I know if I am awake?

If you are familiar with our site and sites like it you may have heard this term “Waking up”.  We hear about all the signs and symptoms of waking up but do we know what it is to actually BE awake?

Lets start with defining what we are talking about and then we will go into what it means on a spiritual level.

If you type “Define Awake” into Google you should see something similar to the picture below.

Lets see how these definitions help us narrow down what we mean when we say waking up or to be awake spiritually.

What does it mean to be spiritually asleep?  If you have watched the Spirit Science series or are familiar with the procession of the equinox you will see that we have been asleep as a planet for a very long time.  What this means is that our level of awareness about the connections all around us has declined to a point where we feel separate from everyone and everything around us.

2. Cause (Someone) to Wake from Sleep

Waking up spiritually, in its more basic terms would be to recognize with your whole being your connection to everyone and everything around you.  This is often referred to as the mystical experience as described by Alan Watts.

3. Regain Consciousness

Regaining consciousness is to remember that we have always been connected with the oneness of the universe.  This is important because it can help us recognize how the mistreatment of others is no different then cutting off your left hand or to poke out one of your eyes.

4. To become AWARE of; come to the realization of

There are many levels of awareness that come with waking up and ultimately being awake.

  • Some people are born awake and remain awake during their lives. This is very rare but not unheard of.  It is theorized that if a child is nurtured with awareness it will be more aware and able to to stay awake.
  • Catalysts such as events can also cause an awakening within a person.  Powerful transformation doesn’t have to be painful but for some it does come with a lot of pain.  Some people speed up their awakening process when they experience a powerful trauma or are diagnosed with a terminal illness.

The Social Revolution that will Change the Way We Connect with Each Other

We are amidst the beginning of a Social Revolution. All of this technology, our communities, communication, and connection with each other is changing. We are able to connect with each other around the globe, and as our technology advances, so too will our communications become more intimate, more real and more personal.

I found this video the other day and I felt very compelled to share it with you. The Social Revolution. We are magnificent beings. You are a magnificent being! A creator of many calibers. Just watch and you’ll see what i’m talking about.

Here is a thought for you. What is the greatest computer? Mac? PC? How about NASA’s supercomputers?

No. You see, your body… that is the greatest computer. Your eyes… they are magnificent! Do you really know what you are seeing? Every single second your eyes take in 72 gigabytes of information. The worlds greatest camera! Is that not incredible? All of this data, this code is behind the firewall of our personality.  86 billion neurons evolved to give us our vision of the world all around us.

Friends, family, lovers, the people around you now. All of the people around you right now, they are all up in here. Your brain. They’re all stories, memories, charged with emotion. Your happiness, your sadness, your joy, your frustration. These connections and stories make up you, an ongoing story that goes on until you die. Your memories are your life.

The author of this speech – Dr. Antoine Cartier-Wells, is leading a project to integrate and communicate memories on a bio-electrical level between people. The technology is still very early on, but they have put together a rather unique and interesting game you can check out here.  I believe there are a great many ideas and technologies that have the potential to stand out to human-kind and be “game changing”. This technology is no exception, and just like with the power of Flight, it can be used to Aid, or Destroy mankind. It’s all about the core, what’s the intention?

Based on his speech, it sounds to me like they’re headed in the right direction :)

If the core is right, this could be one of mankind’s greatest assets in connecting everyone in a way that is wholesome, honest, truthful, and real. Check it out, and see for yourself. How do you feel about it?

Why You Should Love Yourself Made Into A Comic Strip

This is a comic I put together with tremendous inspiration by Elijah Ray, a musician from Hawaii who speaks countless truths and flows amazing love through all of the work that he does. The idea was sparked by Ray Kamille, who shared with me the idea he had to turn this song into an animated cartoon. Cartoons take a really long time to make, and I felt compelled to share this with you in a simpler way, which has manifested in its current form, now :)

Thank you for taking the time to read it, and please enjoy :)

Over a year ago, we also put together a music video based on Elijah’s work – a video called “Give Thanks”.
