Brendan D. Murphy - The promise of energy psychology Posted on Tuesday, 3 September, 2013 | 4 comments Columnist: Brendan D. Murphy The Promise of Energy Psychology Brendan D. Energy psychology describes a collection of novel psychological interventions that "balance, restore, and enhance human functioning by stimulating the human subtle energy system," which includes the acupuncture meridian system, chakras, and nadis. In short, EP modalities use both psychological interventions and energetic interventions together.(3) The result is something far greater than the sum of the parts: EP techniques offer a uniquely powerful way to address and heal the subconscious mind from which around 95% of our thoughts and behaviour originate. EFT and TFT For psychological issues rooted deeply in intense emotion (more so than at the mental level), EFT, TFT, and Matrix Reimprinting (which developed from EFT) may be more effective more of the time than virtually any other therapies. Overall, Matrix Reimprinting Psyche-K

Astral Projection - How to Astral Project Excerpt from Leaving The Body: A Complete Guide to Astral Projection, D. Scott Rogo by D. Scott Rogo One of the chief barriers people learning to project face is fear. Many are afraid that they may die, or be harmed in some way as a result of their projection. Once you are aware that you cannot be harmed by projecting, you should begin Monroe's techniques, step by step. Step one: Relax the body. Step two: Enter the state bordering sleep. Step three: Deepen this state. Step Four: Enter a state of Vibration. Remove all jewelry or other items that might be touching your skin. Step five: Learn to control the vibrational state. Step six: Begin with a partial separation. Step seven: Dissociate yourself from the body. Another method is the "Rotation method" or "roll-out" technique. If, after all this, you still can't project, I recommend purchasing Leaving the Body , by R. Note from Starwitch: I've read Robert Monroe's books many times. CD set to teach you how to have OBEs.

10 Simple Things You Can Do Today That Will Make You Happier, Backed By Science Happiness is so interesting, because we all have different ideas about what it is and how to get it. It’s also no surprise that it’s the Nr.1 value for Buffer’s culture, if you see our slidedeck about it. So naturally we are obsessed with it. I would love to be happier, as I’m sure most people would, so I thought it would be interesting to find some ways to become a happier person that are actually backed up by science. 1. You might have seen some talk recently about the scientific 7 minute workout mentioned in The New York Times. Exercise has such a profound effect on our happiness and well-being that it’s actually been proven to be an effective strategy for overcoming depression. The groups were then tested six months later to assess their relapse rate. You don’t have to be depressed to gain benefit from exercise, though. A study in the Journal of Health Psychology 2 found that people who exercised felt better about their bodies, even when they saw no physical changes: 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Astral Voyage - Astral Projection - Beginner's Guide Although I have provided links to other interesting Astral Projection web sites, I would like to cover several experiences that I went through as a beginner that might help you. First, what is astral projection? Astral projection is simply the transferring of the consciousness from the physical body to the astral body. We have several 'vehicles' for our consciousness, and the astral body is one of them. Now, I will outline the progress of how I learned to astral project: Desire: First is the desire. Fear: "Fear is the great barrier to human growth." Concentration: One of my personal big obstacles! Relaxation: Countless people have repeatedly stressed this and that's because it's true. Here are some things that I have personally implemented myself: knowing when is "enough" in my career. Focus 10: (aka the hypnagogic state-- see Glossary for term definition). Separation: Ok, now the interesting stuff! Rollout (this is also the technique Robert Monroe used). You get pulled back.

Patron, tu me rends malade | Stéphanie Grammond | Stéphanie Grammond Une associée qui prenait un plaisir sadique à demander à son employé de pondre un rapport urgent le vendredi à 16h30 - au diable la fin de semaine en famille - pour rejeter toutes ses recommandations dès le lundi matin. Un vieux de la vieille qui ne se gênait pas pour lancer des livres ou des crayons à la figure de ses subalternes. Un gestionnaire qui pouvait louanger son employé un jour, puis le dénigrer le lendemain devant la haute direction. De quoi vous rendre fou! Le problème de la santé mentale en milieu de travail est loin d'être bénin, a confirmé la semaine dernière la plus vaste étude jamais réalisée au Canada sur cet enjeu. Les résultats sont alarmants. Les coûts des problèmes psychologiques sont énormes: jusqu'à 50 milliards par an, selon la Commission de la santé mentale du Canada. «De 35 à 40 % des réclamations d'assurance invalidité découlent de problèmes de santé mentale», avance Virginie Gosselin, de la compagnie d'assurances Standard Life qui a parrainé l'étude.

How to See the Aura | Explore Meditation When young children draw pictures of people, they think it quite normal to pick bright colors and scribble over different body parts. They don’t put much thought into it … They grab a pencil or crayon from the pile and scribble where it feels most appropriate. For many people, this lends credibility to their belief that it is common for children to see auras. And what do most teachers and parents do? Tell them to choose more natural colors and reward them for drawing ‘with-in the lines’. We may boast that our children have colorful imaginations, but we may well be missing that seeing aura’s is a natural occurance, and inadvertently doing all we can to dull their psychic sense. But seeing auras is a skill that we can re-learn. Anyone can learn how to see the aura . 1. Physical Aura Viewing Let’s look at physically seeing the aura first.

Aura - Learn to see your Aura image with your own eyes What is the Aura ?Everything in the Universe seems to be just a vibration.

Top 20 Figures of Speech - Figurative Language - Definitions and Examples of Figures of Speech By Richard Nordquist Updated September 22, 2015. A figure of speech is a rhetorical device that achieves a special effect by using words in distinctive ways. You will probably remember many of these terms from your English classes.
