There is a very simple breathing exercise that can be especially helpful in maintaining good health at all levels because it focuses on Prana which we mentioned earlier as the source of our life energy. By focusing on pranic energy we are going right to the heart of the problem so to speak. Remember that Prana represents the Universe’s vital force. In China it is called Chi and in Japon Ki.

Kabbalah is an ancient wisdom that reveals how the universe and life work. On a literal level, the word Kabbalah means “to receive.” It's the study of how to receive fulfillment in our lives. Most of us, at some point in our life, have been overcome with the feeling that we are not as fulfilled as we could be. Paradoxically, often the harder we strive to achieve that fulfillment, the more it eludes us. 

Can you recall a time when someone wronged you and then later apologized for their actions? Despite how upset you might have been originally, chances are you forgave them. Now think for a moment and ask yourself, are you as quick to forgive yourself when you are the one who has messed up? Not likely.

You can say it’s because of a global shift in consciousness, a destiny we have arrived at due to spiritual evolution, or the outcome of strange times, but, many people all across the globe are going through intense personal changes and sensing an expansion of consciousness. Personal changes of this magnitude can be difficult to recognize and to understand, but here are 21 traits of an awakening soul, a ‘sensitive’, or an ‘empath.’

Live Buddhism| What is Karma? Karma is the Sanskrit word for action. It is equivalent to Newton’s law of ‘every action must have a reaction’. When we think, speak or act we initiate a force that will react accordingly. This returning force maybe modified, changed or suspended, but most people will not be able eradicate it.

This law of cause and effect is not punishment, but is wholly for the sake of education or learning.

A person may not escape the consequences of his actions, but he will suffer only if he himself has made the conditions ripe for his suffering. Ignorance of the law is no excuse whether the laws are man-made or universal. 

Shaolin Kungfu practied by monks from Shaolin Monastery takes martial arts to a brand new level.

As Shaolin monks believe the strength comes only from the mind, there are almost no limits to what can be done with their bodies during the trainings.

The design and arrangements of their movements are based on the medical knowledge of ancient China and conforms to the rule of movement of the human body.

They believe that what their bodies can endure is symptomatic of the strength of their souls and minds. practied by monks from Shaolin Monastery takes martial arts to a brand new level.


Understanding the nature of our Higher-Selves (aka Oversouls) is essential to living a whole and fulfilling Spiritual life. Each one of us have a higher-self and by being in contact with it, we reach new heights of consciousness. Here’s a detailed explanation of How Our Higher-Selves Work… 

We are all branches, extensions and nodes of Oneness. We live in a holographic reality of various level of spheres vibrating, reverberating and communicating at various levels of existence.

Imagine as though God or Source is the trunk of a great tree. We are all branches or root extensions of that tree. Imagine as though we are the skinny twigs on the outer edges of the tree that connects to the leaves. In this analogy, our Oversoul or Higher-Selves are the next larger and broader branches for which we are connected to, that lead us all the way back to the trunk or “Source.” These broader branches tend to have more unadulterated consciousness, information and bandwidth available. Yet the higher-up you climb the consciousness ladder, the higher-vibration and less physical this consciousness.

Here’s an image to help visualize this framework for our Higher-Selves.

Our Higher-Selves can be connected to many embodied aspects of itself. This means we often share Higher-Selves with other people, both in this experience of time and in previous and later experiences of time. Our Higher-Selves are not bound to time like we are, and they experience all incarnations that they are existing in simultaneously. Our Higher-Self is also serving as the conscious server for other Worldly incarnations, existing as other galactic beings and forms of consciousness in our Universe.

When we incarnate on Earth a certain character/archetype/personality of our Higher-Self consciousness chooses to come into a human body, and take on an additional personality program to adapt to Earth and our collective consciousness. This what we traditionally call an ego or personality.

By the way, it’s worth noting our ego isn’t bad. It’s actually 100% essential to our existence and the goal isn’t to kill it off to return to our Higher-Self. It’s to refine it and harmonize it with our Higher-Self, and for us to deprogram and cut away what we don’t need. That’s what is often referred to as an ego-death.

Is our Higher-Selves our Collective Consciousness? Not quite. Our collective consciousness consists of our group personality consciousness on Earth, and a certain level of our Higher-Self consciousness that is rendered into this reality. The entirety of our Higher-Self consciousness is not made available into the collective consciousness, although it can be. This is part of our Spiritual mission on this planet, to bring our Higher-Selves to the forefront of our existence.

Our Higher-Selves are meant to be our best friends and the wise-one over our shoulder who we can always seek solace and an eager listening ear. It’s usually the one you are always seeking when you feel lost. It’s the sense of being watched when you are alone that feels comforting. It’s the one that coats you in tingly unconditional love when you lay down and have a moment after a long day.

Our Higher-Selves are asking for us to be in continuous communication with them once more. They are always present for us and they are seeking for us to be engaged in a more conscious dialogue with them to assist in steering the timeline we desire to create for our Earth. This communication can happen through feeling, direct dialogue and really all forms of sensory perception. Our Higher-Selves are coming online in our lives and this reaching critical mass is, well, critical to our survival as a species.

Here’s an Activity to Connect to your Higher-Self:
Create a Relationship to you Higher-Self. Call it into a meditative space and begin a conversation. Relax and don’t take it too seriously. Ask questions, get support, tell stories. You’ll be amazed at the information you receive. Open up and feel.
Write down your insights afterward and keep track of, what I call, your relays.

Your Higher-Self can assist you with things effortlessly. It can bring the perfect people and resources into your life at the perfect moment, inducing a life of perfected synchronicity and welcomed challenge. Remember our Higher-Self reminds us that we are here to learn lessons, as they are here to learn lessons through us, and this whole system is set-up very carefully to induce these life lessons so, well, Bless It & the Process!

And Remember! As Our Higher-Selves come online we are attuned to the ever-expanding energy of the Universe. True singularity. We are the dreamers of dreams. Massive Love!

Anyone we could marry would, of course, be a little wrong for us. It is wise to be appropriately pessimistic here. Perfection is not on the cards. Unhappiness is a constant. Nevertheless, one encounters some couples of such primal, grinding mismatch, such deep-seated incompatibility, that one has to conclude that something else is at play beyond the normal disappointments and tensions of every long-term relationship: some people simply shouldn’t be together.
