PSI abilities proved by the western science

I recommend this article by Daryl J. Bem from Cornell University: Feeling the Future - Evidence for Anomalous Retroactive Influences on Cognition and Affect.

It is a scientific research about the psi abilities of humans. It is always an important moment, when the western science finds some evidence about "paranormal" or "anomalous" activities.
           In my opinion, nothing in this universe is "paranormal" or "anomalous". People just tend to give labels like this to phenomenon they don't understand.
           The western science is one of the most conservative systems of the global society, and especially the "paranormal" activities have been its blind spot. That's why even this little article is a huge step.

Mental, Physical, And Spirtual Well-Being During the Difficult Times

Maybe one of the biggest problem in the personal level considering the ongoing era of the Hanged Man is this: How do you maintain your mental, physical and spiritual health during this period? One should remember, that the very essece of the Hanged Man is passivity: unwillingness and incapability of doing anything to help the situation, however bad.
               But what happens to our sanity, and  to our souls, if we just accept all this graziness that our world is going trough? If we just let it happen, we will certainly be destroyed. But it is no use to fight, either, because it is no more possible to specify, what we should fight against.
               So, are we in impossible situation? Isn't there anything we can do to help ourselves?

Yes, there is. Let me give you some suggestions:

1. Keep in touch with your spirituality. Because the spiritual level is very personal, we all have different means of maintaining it. So do what is most comfortable for you. Do some meditation or yoga. Or go to the church. Pray regularly, or read the holy texts of your religion, or religions you are interested in. Listen to music that is meaningful for your soul.

2. Eat only healthy, organic food. Avoid drugs, alcohol, and over-eating.

3. Spend a lot of time with people that you love.

4. Try to be aware of what is really happening. Knowledge will help you through the worst times. However, try to avoid useless or harmful information, like advertisements or propaganda.

5 Do physical excercises regularly - but don't overdo.

6. Make sure you get enough rest.

The Era of the Hanged Man

I don't have any doubt that the Tarot reading is one of the most powerful way to understand what is going on in the world of the humanity - both personally and globally. And my duty is to tell this obvious fact to everyone who is willing to listen: We are living in the era of the Hanged Man. The tragedy is, of course, that we have willingly allowed us to get hanged. By whom? Or by what?
                We have been hanged by the global market economy. And now it is too late to regret this. We are just as helpless as the Hanged Man of the Major Arcana.
                How long will the era of the Hanged Man last? No one knows for sure, but it seems like the length of each tarot era cycle has lately been about 40 years. For example, 1910 - 1950 was the era of the Tower, and 1950-1990 was the era of the Magician. The Magician brought many wonders to us, but also many illusions that lured us to hang ourselves - most importantly the illusion of constant growth.
                And which era will follow the Hanged Man? If we could act wisely, it might be the era of Temperance. But I fear we are not yet wise enough, and even if we were, the very essence of the Hanged Man is the disability and unwillingness to act at all. So it will probably be the era of Judgement, Death or (at worst case) even another Tower.

Halloween: Carnivalization of Our Inner Demons

I think that Halloween is one of the most important holidays of western cultures. It is the time when we have a special opportunity do deal with our inner demons in the subconscious level - fears, angers, forbidden urges, dark feelings - in a safe, funny, carnivalistic way. We should make most of it, for the sake of our mental and spiritual well-being. Because if we neglect the Halloween, it can be harmful for the free flow of energies through our chacras - especially the energies related to Manipura, the solar plexus chacra.

Astrology as Ancient Wisdom

I really respect astrology. Astrology is a fascinating combination of ancient empiric knowledge, mysticism, fatalism, and even everyday entertainment! Even though many people consider it just nonsense, the undeniable fact is that even today it has a huge influence on the world views of many people. It is not just about reading your daily horoscope from a newspaper for fun, but also about understanding and categorizing human behavior, and even comprehending the yearly twelve-month cycle based on the signs of the zodiac. This happens in very deep subconscious level.
            And even though astrology has certain religion-like qualities, it totally lacks one feature so sadly typical to most religions: violence. In its deepest level, astrology is about seeking harmony between different, even contradicting elements.

The Beginning of My Spiritual Path

When I was younger, I got a Vision: Suddenly I saw the familiar three-dimensonal world as flat, two-dimensional one. And behind that flat surface there was another dimension that is normally hidden from the human beings. It was filled with light, warmth and love. The cosmic energies were flowing through me totally freely. I have never been that close to God.
          That's when I started to walk along the spiritual path. First I tried to understand my vision, and sought help from the religions. But very soon I noticed that the religions were not interested in finding the truth. Instead, they were interested in keeping up their institutionalized status. So I realized that I needed to find the truth on my own, keeping my heart and my senses open.

Seven Visions of the Universe.

This is what I have learnt about the universe so far:

1. Nothing in this universe is "good" or "evil". There are just constructive and destructive energies, and thanks to them, the universe is in a state of constant streaming. We should embrace the stream, and let the stream embrace us, because the stream and us are the same: endless flow of mystical energies.

2. God does exist, but the concept of God is beyond any religion. The religions tell more about limitations of the human beings than about God.

3. Nothing in this universe is "paranormal", "abnormal", or "against the nature". Those concepts merely manifest the limitations of the human beings. Thus, anything that exists in the universe, is there for a reason, and should exist per se.

4. We are what we are, and  neither can't nor shouldn't be anything else. But we can become anything. Indeed, anything.

5. A human being is just as important as a flower, a stone, or a fly. Not more, not less.

6. The greatest gift of the human beings is not intelligence, but intuition.

7. Time is an illusion. Death is another one.
