The Top 5 Health Benefits Of Dark Chocolate

Almost everybody likes chocolate. It is usually thought of as a sinful decadence, something we eat when we are choosing to indulge. Chocolate is also synonymous with happiness; do you ever notice people who are eating chocolate always seem happy to be doing so? There’s a good reason for that! Chocolate has been shown to actually raise serotonin levels (the happiness hormone) within the brain. I should clarify here though, there is a huge difference between regular old, overly processed milk chocolate, and dark chocolate that has little or no milk added and significantly less sugar. The best quality dark chocolate has cocoa percentages ranging from 70 to 99%.

Here are the top five benefits of dark chocolate.

1. High Levels Of Antioxidants And Minerals

Did you know that chocolate has one of the highest levels of antioxidants of any other food in the world? Yes, it is definitely a superfood. Antioxidants help to protect the body from free radicals that can cause cancer. Dark chocolate is also loaded with minerals such as: iron, magnesium, copper, manganese, fibre, phosphorous, zinc, and selenium.

Have You Been Limiting Yourself By Retelling The Story Of Your Past?

“You are very possibly, not actually who you think you are.”

This is a statement that can unnerve even the most hardened of folks. In this article I will be exploring precisely how the experiences of your past create your present understanding of not only who you are, but what you believe you are capable of as well.

In the course of my work as an intuitive strategist and life coach, I will from time to time come across both new and existing clients who have 100% bought into the persona, story, experiences, and baggage that have defined them as the central character of their past. One of the dead give-away signs that this is what the client is experiencing is when they are able to very fluently explain exactly why their past dictates their unhappiness, frustration, and ‘stuckness’ in the present.

How To Get Out Of Your Head & Into Your Heart

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts. ~ Bertrand Russell

We can intellectualize the world’s problems forever, debating who created them and how we can change them, but one thing is for certain when it comes to our ability to evolve to the next step of humanity – we’ve got to get out of our heads and into our hearts.

We need to be fools. We need to get a little crazy, in fact. Quite literally – lose our minds. Lose the ever-thinking, conniving, worrying, strategizing ways of the intellect which hold up true progress. Sure, the human intellect is amazing, it came up with post-it notes and pumpkin pie, but it also devised the atom bomb, fracking, and water fluoridation.

The heart doesn’t ‘think’ like that. It just loves. It throws caution to the wind and includes everyone in the discussion. It doesn’t draw impenetrable boundaries or lines in the sand.

“Remember the emphasis on the heart. The mind lives in doubt and the heart lives in trust. When you trust, suddenly you become centered.” ~ Osho

U.S. Government Releases Document With Details Of Extraterrestrial Bodies, Craft & Home Planet

With several governments around the world openly admitting to the existence of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), the United States government has received a large push from its citizens to disclose the truth about their knowledge of this bizarre yet fascinating phenomenon.

As a result, in late 2014 Barack Obama’s right hand man, (Councillor) Jon Podesta, who was also the Chief of Staff under the Clinton administration, tweeted that one of his biggest regrets of 2014 was his inability to “secure the disclosure of UFO files” and that “the time to pull the curtain back on this subject is long overdue. We have statements from the most credible sources, those in a position to know – about a fascinating phenomenon, the nature of which is yet to be determined.” (You can read more about Podesta and UFOs here.)

Quantum Experiment Shows How “Time” Doesn’t Exist As We Think It Does (Mind-Altering)

“We choose to examine a phenomenon which is impossible, absolutely impossible, to explain in any classical way, and which has in it the heart of quantum mechanics. In reality, it contains the only mystery.” Richard Feynman, a Nobel laureate of the twentieth century (Radin, Dean. Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences In A Quantum Reality. New York, Paraview Pocket Books, 2006)

The concept of “time” is a weird one, and the world of quantum physics is even weirder. There is no shortage of observed phenomena which defy our understanding of logic, bringing into play thoughts, feelings, emotions – consciousness itself, and a post-materialist view of the universe. This fact is no better illustrated than by the classic double slit experiment, which has been used by physicists (repeatedly) to explore the role of consciousness and its role in shaping/affecting physical reality. (source) The dominant role of a physical material (Newtonian) universe was dropped the second quantum mechanics entered into the equation and shook up the very foundation of science, as it continues to do today.

Wellness Classes In A Stranger’s Home Near You? Check This Out!

daana | Democratizing Wellness

Would you go to a stranger’s home for a yoga class?

Would you offer your living or work space for the well-being of others?

If you were offered a wellness class for free, would you contribute fairly for the benefit of future students?

A small group from Montreal is about to find out, and could significantly revolutionize wellness as we know it.

The daana project is a non-profit initiative driven by the intention to democratize wellness activities worldwide. The tagline says it all: “Healthy Body, Peaceful Mind, For All.” This is potentially a huge game-changer in the conventional approach to good health. The concept is simple: wellness, open-source, donation-based, world-wide.

An Easy & Convenient Way To Care For Your Health

Most of us are aware that practices like yoga, meditation, Tai Chi, dance, art, dialogue circles and so on, have tremendous health benefits. Yet so few of us participate in a regular group practice. The primary reasons are either location or lack of time or money. Daana is creating a revolution in the welln...

How Humanity Has Enslaved Itself

Most people won’t believe they are enslaved, though some believe they are enslaved by the ruling elite. But when we look deeper into this predicament, we may be able to see that we are in fact enslaved or trapped by our own minds.

Man is a slave. He is not born as a slave, he is born free. He is born as freedom, but he is found in chains everywhere. He lives in chains, he dies in chains. This is the greatest calamity that has happened to humanity.

(Video) Orca Whale & Its Entire Family Show Phenomenal Appreciation After Rescue

Whales are truly amazing creatures. These gentle giants are some of the worlds most intelligent and emotional animals, despite the fact that researchers and scientists still know very little about them. We really don’t give animals as much intellectual credit as they deserve, even though they often display behaviour and characteristics which show (in my option) that many of them far outstrip the intelligence of the average human being.

Below is a video of a stranded Orca who found himself beached on the shores of New Zealand. After saving the whale, the rescuer managed to get some remarkable footage of his reaction as they took him back out to sea. Here is another video of Ingrid (whale’s rescuer) talking about the incident.

I hope you enjoy the footage, and perhaps take a moment to consider what our species is doing to the ocean, and to the environment overall. The way this whale responds to Ingrid is amazing, and even years later “Ben” would still approach her and her boat, while keeping his distance from the others (as explained by Ingrid the video linked above).

The Brazilian Food Guide – Revolutionizing The Way We Look at Food

Last year the Brazilian Ministry of Health did something pretty radical: they created a food guide that actually reflects healthful eating habits.

The new guide offers a holistic, comprehensive, and ethical approach to diet, and the result is an incredibly refreshing (and quite radical – more on that later) manual for living a healthy life. Rather than dividing foods into subgroups in the typical Western, reductionist manner – carbs, protein, veggies, fruit, protein – and recommending what, in the Canadian context at least, feels like a simultaneously restrictive and unattainable number of servings to consume each day, Brazil’s guide breaks down foods in a much more natural way. Their four food categories are:

  1. naturally or minimally processed foods;
  2. oils, fats, salt and sugar;
  3. processed foods (these include bread, cheeses, cured meats and pickles); and
  4. ultra-processed foods.

6 Lessons I Learned From Befriending A Stranger

The “Golden Rule” is a maxim which teaches us that one of the most important values in life is to treat others how you would want to be treated. A simple rule to follow, but perhaps one of the most difficult – as it sometimes can be easier to judge, react, or ignore the people we encounter on a daily basis. However, if we step outside of our “comfort zone” and apply the rule to our everyday life, we can come to understand that the wisdom behind the words would have us look at each person as a reflection of ourselves, so we mirror what we wish to see in the world.
