Anchoring the Reality That We Want
We've all experienced this phenomenon before: you've never heard of a particular item, idea, or person and then once you do you find it popping up all over the place. It's as if the whole world (or at least everybody you know on Facebook), all got the same buzz at the same time. Of course, we all know that someone had to be "the first" -- the first to think that thought, invent that item, do the research, say or do or discover something new -- and that everybody else caught on later....

Ask Li Chen: Channeled Answers to Your Spiritual Questions by Jocelyn Graef
Q: Li Chen, can you help to resolve the emotions of anger and grief peacefully? A:
Dear One, painful emotions are always difficult. This does not mean it is necessary always to resolve them peacefully. This may be a surprising response, so let us look at these two powerful emotions.

Lucid Dreaming & Astral Travel in the Early Church by Robert Moss
Early fathers of the
Christian church were in favor of active dreaming and astral travel. Tertullian, who famously observed that “most people derive their knowledge of God from dreams” urged
Christians who found themselves in captivity, perhaps on the way to martyrdom, to get out and about in their astral bodies: Though the body is shut in, though the flesh is confined, all things are open to the spirit. In spirit, then, roam abroad; in spirit walk about, not setting before you shady paths or long colonnades, but the way which leads to God.

Delay or Reverse Aging with Qi Gong, Meditation, Yoga and More
There's increased evidence showing that practices such as qi gong, meditation and yoga can not only prevent disease, but actually reverse it and delay aging as well. As scientists learn more about such topics as gene expression, what turns a gene on or off, and how to prevent telomeres, (the strands of protein in our cells that control aging) from unraveling, it becomes impossible to ignore just how much our good lifestyle choices can pay off.

Organic Compost Center Proposed for Greenburgh, NY
Officials in Greenburgh, NY
are looking into designating park area into organic composting site. The Town proposal aims to reduce waste by as much as 30% and save taxpayers money.
“…If the Landmark creates an organic recycling compost site on their property for their tenants it could generate significant momentum that could encourage more organic recycling throughout
Westchester! If schools encourage source separation--if major land owners encourage their tenants to source separate --if major businesses and governments do the same ---we will be able to REDUCE our waste and save significant taxpayer dollars.

MBSR: Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a method of using meditation and yoga to cultivate awareness and reduce stress. Of course, many of us having been doing this for years, but did you know it had a name? First developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979, MBSR is based on the ancient practice of mindfulness, which is about waking up and being present in the richness of each moment of our lives. By doing this we gain access to our deepest inner resources for living, healing, and coping with stress.

Finding Another God Particle? The Large Hadron Collider is Back Online!
The Large Hadron Collider, or LHC, as it is known, has restarted this week in
Switzerland after a two year hiatus for rebuilding and refitting.
The facility conducts particle beam experiments and is famous for identifying the Higgs Boson particle, or “God particle,” in 2012, thought to be the source of the universe’s creation... some of the things that the Large Hadron Collider will be looking for during its next round of experiments will be more information about the Higgs boson and how it works. Scientists at CERN will also be trying to create the particles that are hypothesized to make up dark matter as well as evidence for the
first supersymmetric particle

David Eagleman: Time, Perception and Synesthesia
David Eagleman is an American neuroscientist and writer at Baylor College of Medicine, where he directs the Laboratory for Perception and Action and the Initiative on Neuroscience and Law. He is best known for his work on time perception, synesthesia, and neuro-law.
After a close brush with death as a child, Eagleman began to question his assumptions about time and the brain.
His experience, of time slowing down during a life threatening accident, left him feeling like
