Reiki Healing | Meditation Music – Binaural Beats – Delta Meditation – Music Therapy

This reiki healing music can be used by most people and practitioners as an aid to improve your reiki healing, and meditation experience. This video uses many frequencies so I can’t list them all here. If you are interested in this information, you can open the audio with a spectrogram. This video uses the following pulse modulation frequencies: 3 Hz and 2 Hz while using 100 Hz as the carrier frequency. This music induces delta brainwaves. Delta waves are the slowest of all and are defined as having a pulse modulation frequency range between 0-4 Hz. We experience these brainwaves naturally when we are in the deepest of sleep or meditative states. These brainwaves send signals throughout the body to stimulate regeneration, and healthy neuro-chemistry and as a result are vital in the maintenance of health and psychological well-being.

Please take the time to properly adjust your volume to a low and comfortable level. For optimal results, you should listen to this while resting with your eyes closed. Please consider sharing your opinion or experience with this video. Any criticism is welcomed and appreciated. Rating this video with a like or dislike helps to reflect the video’s efficacy and value.

Ghouls, spirits, Halloween Astrology

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology, Psychic

Fixed Star Algol, at 26 degrees 10 minutes TAURUS has the rep for being the baddest star in the sky from a latter Greek patriarchal mythology.

Al Ghoul is the Arabic root word for this star which is also the etymology for ghouls or spirits, and spooky things, perfect for Halloween season. Also it’s the root word for alcohol/spirits. Devout muslims are forbidden to drink Alcohol.

Medusa was once a beautiful and fierce Amazon warrior goddess from Libya who wore her hair in dreadlocks which were seen as snakes. She was mythologized as a hideous powerful feared monster needing to be defeated by the patriarchs. She was slain by Perseus who used a mirror to avoid looking into her deadly eyes which could turn any man to stone. Clearly a symbol of men’s fear of powerful women and a brainwashing story about the defeat of independent strong women.

Activities and Applications of Emerging Herbal Preparations

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

“Nutraceutical” is an umbrella term, often used interchangeably with “functional food”. Nutraceuticals are foods, food ingredients, or dietary supplements (DSs) with benefits beyond basic nutrition. They include functional and fortified foods, fiber products, herbs that are not primarily medicinal, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Regulated differently in different countries, they have varying routes to approval and histories of use. In traditional medical systems, foods are often used medicinally, and medicinal herbs or vegetables are often used in foods. There is an overall lack of regulation globally. Often, there is conflicting evidence for claimed benefits of nutraceuticals, with a paucity of clinical trials. Sales of botanicals vary from annually depending on many factors. Some may have new reports of efficacy; for others, popularity has other roots. Sales data, lacking for many areas, are unreliable where available due to varying definitions and range of outlets.

Medicinal Plant Research Experts Publish Extensive Review on Adaptogens

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

On October 25, 2020, the scientific journal Medicinal Research Reviews published a review entitled “Evolution of the adaptogenic concept from traditional use to medical systems: Pharmacology of stress‐ and aging‐related diseases.”1 This paper, written by 11 medicinal plant experts, comes at a time when herbal adaptogens are becoming more widely used by proactive health consumers to deal with increasing mental and physical stress.

The concept of adaptogenic herbs was established in the years after World War II in Russia, but has gained acceptance around the world as evidenced by the market success of many adaptogens such as ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng), eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus), and rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea).

The publication is 74-pages long and cites 628 references. Adaptogens are introduced by providing definitions from various authors over 60 years. This is an important aspect of the paper, since…

Theosophy | Finding Enlightenment in Times of Darkness – The Theosophical Society

As human beings, we all experience times of darkness. These times can be initiated by something external to us such as the death of a loved one, a pandemic, or a natural disaster. Times of darkness can also originate internally, brought about through life events like experiencing a milestone birthday, or feeling that life has lost its meaning. These experiences, whether externally or internally initiated, can leave us suffering intense pain as well as feeling overwhelmed and lost. However, it is possible to reach toward enlightenment during times of darkness, thus alleviating these feelings. In this talk, we will explore, not only times of darkness, but enlightenment, its meaning, how we may strive toward it. Presented on October 22, 2020.

Daily Words of the Buddha for October 26, 2020

Pāli Word a Day for October 26, 2020 – ajjavatā — straight forwardness, up-rightness

Tasseva tena pāpiyo,
yo kuddhaṃ paṭikujjhati.
Kuddhaṃ appaṭikujjhanto,

The worse of the two is one,
who, when abused, retaliates.
One who does not retaliate,
wins a battle hard to win.

Arts & Culture | The Power of Poetry, with William Sieghart, Jeanette Winterson and Helena Bonham Carter

The Power of Poetry, with William Sieghart, Jeanette Winterson and Helena Bonham Carter

For 15 years, the power of the spoken word has been at the heart of Intelligence Squared’s mission. Argument and debate, we believe, can move, persuade and create real change. Now, in these anxious and divided times, we held a special event that celebrated the positive, transformative force of another kind of spoken word – poetry. William Sieghart told the extraordinary story of his bestselling book, The Poetry Pharmacy: Tried-and-True Prescriptions for the Heart, Mind and Soul. This is no conventional collection but one created from Sieghart’s own, personal experience of prescribing real poems to real people in need. Every poem is matched to a specific condition: fear of the unknown, unrequited love, stagnation, purposelessness, convalescence, oppression.

Joining him in conversation were novelist and poetry devotee Jeanette Winterson. Together they explored poetry’s uncanny ability to calm, console and, above all, connect us to the minds and feelings of others. Finding the right poem at the right moment is not just a problem shared, Sieghart says, but a problem transformed. It is ‘to discover a powerful sense of complicity, and that precious realisation: I’m not the only one who feels like this.’ It is to forge a connection with ‘this stranger who understands – and what results is a sort of peace.’ Bringing the poems to dramatic life were a cast of star actors including Helena Bonham Carter, Sue Perkins, Jason Isaacs and Tom Burke.
