A Town Called Allopath 14 y
A clever little fable that explains exactly how allopathic doctors work along with Big Pharma and the FDA to promote illness amongst the masses instead of wellness...
Welcome to the town of Allopath
There once was a town called Allopath. It had many people, streets and cars, but due to budget limitations, there were no stop signs or traffic lights anywhere in Allopath.
Not surprisingly, traffic accidents were common. Cars would crash into each other at nearly every intersection. But business was booming for the auto repair shops and local hospitals, which dominated the economy of Allopath.
As the population of Allopath grew, traffic accidents increased to an alarming level. Out of desperation, the city ... read more

Belly Beautiful — An Ancient Style of Dance
Belly dance is an ancient celebration and communication between women...
A mi Hudson, 28, used to be a banker. Now she’s a belly dancer. In 1999, Hudson was flat on her back for bed rest during her first pregnancy. Stuck watching TV, she saw a program on belly dancing. The performance, followed by a dance lesson, tapped Hudson’s lifelong fascination with all things Egyptian, especially the belly dancing she’d seen in movies and at ethnic festivals while growing up in Milwaukee. "I decided I really wanted to pursue this and to get good at it," says Hudson, who had only dabbled in belly-dance classe ... read more
Sound of the Soul: Free Your Inner Voice 14 y
In all cultures, all walks of life, our breathing patterns hold our traumas and our emotional history...
I f the eyes are the soul’s window, then the voice is its loudspeaker. So when vocal awareness expert Arthur Joseph tells me he can hear all of a person in their voice, can know who they are, even over the phone, I feel a little nervous, a little naked. Later, I’m relieved, if not flattered, when he tells me I sound like a gentle soul. I wonder how it is that the sound of my voice is also the sound of my soul.
"In all cultures, all walks of life, our breathing patterns hold our traumas and our emotional hist ... read more

Are You Committing Spiritual Suicide? 14 y
What is spiritual suicide and how do you know if you’re committing it?
I first heard the term “spiritual suicide” used by motivational speaker, Les Brown. What is spiritual suicide and how do you know if you’re committing it? It is the killing of that part of oneself that is associated with the feelings and the mind as well as the killing of real meaning or significance in one’s life. So, as Mr. Brown so eloquently put it, if you are not doing work that is meaningful to you or being the person you were truly meant to be, then you are committing spiritual suicide.
What are some of the signs t ... read more

In experiments with water and plants, people have played rock and roll music and then classical music and compared the results. With water, Dr. Masaru Emoto freezes the water and then observes the crystals. The water crystals have a beautiful symmetric pattern in response to classical music and are an ugly mess with the heavy metal music. The words “Adolf Hitler” were taped around a glass of water, with the same outcome.
Experiments with plants have shown similar results.
These experiments are sometimes cited as ’proof’ ... read more
