20 Signs You’re Caught up In the Matrix

Morpheus: “You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.” –The Matrix

Whether you are aware of it or not, many in the West are born, grow, and die a slave to the Matrix. The 1999 movie of the same name starring Keanu Reeves questions what is real and what is simulated reality. While purely a fictitious work by the Wachowskis brothers, the movie touches on themes which challenge the current model of society and points to the problem of indoctrination and a lack of awareness amongst the populace. In search of answers, the mild-mannered Neo, a computer programmer, meets Morpheus, who tries to explain the Matrix. On entering the room Morpheus asks Neo, “Do you want to know what it is?” He explains…

The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. You can see it when you look out your window, or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work. or you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth. – The Matrix

Precognition: Science Shows How Our Body Reacts To Events Up To 10 Seconds Before They Happen

Over the past few decades a significant and noteworthy amount of scientific research has emerged contributing to the notion that human precognition could very well be real, and that we all might possess this potential -amongst various other extended human capacities.

Thanks to the research by various scientists presented in this article, extended human capacities are beginning to exit the realm of superstitious thinking, delusion and irrationality and find their way into the world of confirmed phenomena. Claims of precognition or “future telling” have occurred “throughout human history in virtually every culture and period.” (source)

It’s not hard to see why we are so fascinated with these concepts, they are embedded in popular culture today throughout various outlets such as movies -which can sometimes be counter productive given the fact that they are merged with fictional stories and events.

Scientific Studies Confirm: Aluminium Foil is Linked to Alzheimers

I’ve had a few conversations with people who say cooking with aluminium foil is completely fine. I wanted to believe that, but I couldn’t see how cooking with that kind of metal could be good. There is a demand for aluminium free products like deodorants, dyes, make up, food, and so much more for a reason; it shouldn’t be in anything we consume or put on us.

Aluminum is naturally occurring in the Earth’s crust. It exists in soil, plants and water, it’s something we can’t completely avoid, but we don’t need to be consuming it.

According to Health Canada, about 95 percent of our aluminum intake comes our from food but only 1 percent is actually absorbed into our bodies.

So is there really a problem here?

Studies show that food cooked in aluminium foil can contain up to more than six times the level of safety for consumption.

Chemical engineering researchers at the American University of Sharjah, found that a single meal cooked in aluminium can have up to 400mg of the metal in it.

How Essential Oils Can Heal Brain Injuries

Our sense of smell is the only sense that is directly tied to the limbic area of the brain, which is considered the emotional control center. And when we inhale essential oils they go directly to the brain. The other four senses — taste, sight, touch and hearing — are first routed through the thalamus before reaching designated areas of the brain.

Therapeutic-grade essential oils can have amazing psychological and physiological effects since the limbic system is directly connected to parts of the brain that control blood pressure, heart rate, breathing, stress levels, memory, and hormone balance. Every essential oil has therapeutic calming, sedative, stimulating, and balancing properties. The inhaled molecule of the essential oil travels through the nasal passage to a receptor neuron that transports it up to the limbic brain, particularly the hypothalamus. The limbic center in the brain controls all the physical, psychological, and emotional responses that the body performs based on stimuli that come from the outside. Therefore, the capacity of essential oils to target the limbic center makes them a powerful tool in the treatment of many health diseases.

Sniffing Rosemary Can Increase Memory By 75%

Rosemary is known as an amazing herb that has many purposes. Traditional medicine has been using its leaves for centuries. Students in ancient Greece would often put rosemary sprigs in their hair when studying for exams, because they believed it improved their memory.

There’s a reference to rosemary in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, when Ophelia declares: ‘There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance: pray, love, remember.’

Research has found rosemary to contain carnosic acid, which fights off free radical damage to the brain. The natural acids in rosemary aid in protecting the body`s cells and DNA from free radical damage.

The compounds in rosemary are known to prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine, a chemical that induces the brain cells that are responsible for communication and memory.

Several tests were done with rosemary essential oil, and they found that the oil increased the chances of remembering future tasks by 60 – 75%, when compared to people who weren’t exposed to the oil.

Empathy 101: Essential Coping Tips For Empaths

Being able to pick up on others energy and feel what they are feeling is a wonderful gift to have.  It can also be one of the most burdensome curses.  If not managed properly, empathetic abilities can cause you extreme emotional, spiritual, and psychological distress.

Have you ever been around someone and had your energy completely drained from how negative they are? Or have you ever been around someone who is in a state of depression, and then you get caught up in feeling that same depression as well?  Being an empath is a gift, but it requires that we have a special skillset to prevent ourselves from losing our energy and our sanity.

Here are 3 essential coping tips for people with empathetic abilities:

1) Guard your thoughts

Here is a very common experience empaths go through.  Let’s say you are sitting down with a friend, and another person walks into the room and you start picking up on what they are feeling.  When you start picking up on what they are feeling, pay attention to the thoughts that arise in your mind when this happens.  They may be thoughts like:

There are Over 30 types of Astrological Systems; How Many Do You Know?

Despite the fact that you are placing your off-and-on relationship with your zodiac sign in the ‘entertainment’ field, astrology is actually very serious matter. It’s a large group of systems, beliefs and traditions. Although various types of astrology may be different, they share one thing in common – they are built on using the observation of the heavens as a way to predict, interpret and understand events in the human world on Earth.

It’s a science that studies the influence that distant celestial bodies have on human lives. It’s based on the premise that the position of these cosmic objects (stars, sun, moon and planets) at the time of our birth, shape our personality, influencing our careers, romantic relationships, economic fortunes and health.

It is believed that the origins of the astrological doctrine can be found in ancient Babylonia in the middle of the 2nd millennium BC. Throughout history astrology has even been considered an academic tradition. Although astrology in some cultures has a strong religious significance, in others remains to be controversial.

Almost every culture has it’s own astrology. Perhaps no one knows the exact number of types of astrology but you can use the following list as a guide to some of the worldwide astrology traditions that exist. Here’s a brief explanation of the most popular ones.
