Based completely on my own first hand experience I believe we can heal ourselves and others with pure touch and intent.

My dad is extremely racist, sexist and homophobic etc., and it tears me apart everyday. Today he laughed at me for saying that Mike Brown did not deserve to die and said that I am simply absorbing propaganda. It has sent me over the edge and I feel exhausted having to live with this vile man, let alone call him my dad. There is no getting through to him. Do you have any advice?

america-wakiewakie:

Stop trying. Focus on building relationships with people who care about making this world better. Don’t waste all the valuable energy you offer, because I know first hand there isn’t enough to battle the bigots all the time AND still have the energy to create anew. Those of us who want a better future will build it, the rest will get left isolated, behind, and forced to see the world of today’s status quo dismantled as a new one rises, or they will whither and die.

I lived in an incredibly conservative household too. I felt caged. When I left I promised myself I would no longer hold my tongue or the force of my passion. Essentially I have walked away from blood to find and build family in my comrades. This is a difficult journey to be on, you will need support. Do your best to build it now, and leave when you can.

"Part of what psychedelics do is they decondition you from cultural values. This is what makes it such a political hot potato. 
Since all culture is a kind of con game, the most dangerous candy you can hand out is one which causes people to start questioning the rules of the game."
— Terence Mckenna

Access Your Inner Guru through the Subtle Energy Body Have you ever had “goose bumps” when something out of the ordinary occurs? Do you sometimes just know who is calling on the phone before answering? Your subtle energy body is giving you a message when these happenstances occur.These experiences and many others are really not out of the ordinary. Perhaps they catch us off guard, but really, they are simply part of our energetic field that is picking up information from the universal energy field.The subtle energy body is the energy field that surrounds the physical body. It is sometimes been referred to as the aura, the bio field, or the etheric field. This is the bridge between the energy “out there” and our own energy field. We are affected daily by electromagnetic fields as well as other fields of energy whether we know it or not. We are affected both somatically as well as psychically. We do not know when radio waves are passing through our space, yet we know they are there and can be received with the correct antennae. The same is true with energy. We can become in tune or attuned to energy and how it affects us through the fine tuning of our physical apparatuses called the chakras which are an integral system within the subtle energy body (SEB).The SEB is like an energetic bridge that lives between the physical body and the Soul Self. It has many layers, or levels which include different bands or fields of energy vibrating at different Hertz which are cycles of vibration. Think of a piano with its different keys, each holds a different sound or vibration. Like the magnetic fields in and around the earth, we are not aware of them, until we find some way to become aware of them. This is true for the universal energy field with all of its multi-dimensions as well. Each dimension, like the layers in your subtle energy body, has its own “tone” or vibratory rate. Just as there are different intersecting levels of the universal energy field, there are different intersecting layers around the physical body. These layers around the physical body (there are at least seven energetic levels) are what the subtle energy body (SEB) are made of. The ability to access information ~ bring soul awareness~ through your subtle energy body is an ancient teaching found in many esoteric schools.Inner Sensory PerceptionInner sensory perception, or ISP, is the one of the gifts of clearing the SEB. People who do yoga, or consciously clear the subtle energy body through chakra work and other means will find that their so called psychic ability gets turned up several notches. This is because the SEB becomes a clear channel to receive knowledge and information from the universal energy field which I call the Mystic Realms. The ability to give and receive information through a clear “processor” is your inner sensory perception (ISP) at work. Once you learn the way to keep your SEB clear, you will be able to access all the spiritual realms for healing, asking questions and discerning your soul’s purpose.The Mystic RealmsI often think of the story of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, when I imagine the universal energy field. Entering the different realms is like entering a closet and coming out in another realm. Like the SEB, the mystic realms are fields of energy that lives around all things. They exist at levels of vibratory rates and have vibratory signatures that distinguish each level from the other. I talk about five realms in Gifts of the Soul: the elemental, the physical, the astral, the imaginal and the cosmic realm. We are very aware of one of them in our everyday lives; the physical realm. But there are energetic fields that are invisible and have their own vibratory signature that we can also become aware of and access for guidance and help. These realms are realms, within which your ancestors reside, or your spiritual teachers, and other sentient beings which are within a shift of consciousness away. Shamen have traveled to these worlds for thousands of years for help and healing. Yogis and Swamis of the East know the secrets to gaining this kind of help for healing and information. You can know how as well. It is a matter of clearing and balancing your energetic system, known as the subtle body.This is why I am such an advocate of balancing, clearing and healing your personal energy field. You can “upgrade” your awareness of self and the universal energy field through personal work, chakra clearing and balancing and other body work methods. This work implies clearing the energy body (the bio-field) of the sludge that accumulates in the field from emotional issues and thougthforms hanging around you like a cloud of dust. Another way energy becomes blocked and is through trauma. Trauma lives in your energy field as cellular memory which can be from past lives or current life. Sometimes these are soul contracts, beliefs that you made when you died last. It can be emotional wounds from trauma to your body, such as illness, emotional hardships and other life traumas that lie buried in the unconscious found in the SEB. Accessing these energetic blocks and releasing them are key to clearing your SEB, a living antennae for knowing, for soul awareness and for healing.As you do this work with your subtle energy body, you will notice an affect at all levels; physical, emotional and spiritual. As a result, you then become energetically “whole” and you are able to access spiritual help from the elemental, the astral, and the imaginal and cosmic realms. Want to hear your spiritual team talk to you, or give you images as messages? No problem. I teach you this and other valuable tools in my book, Gifts of the Soul.

Goosebumps & The Energy Body

Veganism is not about how easy or hard it is for you. It’s about every animal’s right not to be used as a slave.
- Randy Sandberg (via happy-vegans)

You mean only vegans have the right to campaign about ending animal cruelty? Way to go coming off as a classist.

acti-veg:

What about that assertion is classist? Your implication that vegan = middle class however, is classist. I am militantly working class, and ate very little meat even before I become vegan, because we could not afford it. The most impoverished people in the world eat plant based diets, meat is a luxury, it is only comparatively cheap in the west because we subsidise it to a ridiculous degree.

I am not convinced that you understand what classism is? Veganism is not a class. I am simply stating that you cannot campaign for animals to have rights, while simultaneously believing they do not have the right to be alive, the right for self-determination or the right to decide what is done with their own bodies. 98% of animals who are victims of abuse, are abused by the meat, dairy and egg industries… So are you just advocating for the remaining 2% to be treated well? 

I cannot legitimately advocate for women’s rights, while simultaneously engaging in misogynistic and sexist behaviour. I cannot campaign against animal cruelty, while living a lifestyle that promotes, funds and requires animal cruelty. The two positions are wholly incompatible. 

*Applause*

How problematic

im gonna fuckin throw up

Okay, okay calm down, people.

While you are all losing your mind over ‘cultural appropriation” of an Indian dress, nobody actually consulted THE INDIANS. 

In our country, if a foreigner wears an Indian saree, we actually appreciate it. It shows that the foreigner respects us enough to try our clothes. And the saree, mind you, is not a religious thing. Hindus can wear sarees, Muslims can wear sarees, Sikh’s can wear sarees, Jain’s can wear sarees and so on.

Like Americans have short dresses, compare that with sarees. Going to a party? Saree. Going to temple? Saree, and so on.

Some Indians wear it, some don’t. Some hate it and think its oppressing, some love embracing the unique style.

Point is, don’t hate on her for wearing this. Don’t hate on anyone for wearing sarees or any variations of sarees. We love to see others embracing our culture. Why do you think we open our gates to allow everyone to practice yoga and find spiritual meaning?

Culture is not meant to be kept within four walls, it should be spread.

I did not know this. That is really interesting to find out. Thanks for the information.

"Culture is not meant to be kept within four walls, it should be spread."

OH MY GOD THANK YOU

IM INDIAN AND I CAN CONFIRM, ITS THE BEST THING EVER WHEN I SEE GAGA WEARING ANYTHING EVEN REMOTELY INDIAN

Yes thank you someone finally put it into words 👏👏👏👏👏
One of my best friends is Indian and he is constantly telling me to get a saree because he says it would totally suit my style. And there you have it.

Walking with nature helps me to accept the on-going transformation of life around me. I see the trees grow and it makes me happy to grow. I see the sun shine and I remember that I can light up someone’s day. I see a bird feeding its young and I am forever grateful for the abundance that is my life.Every day is a blessing & there is so much to be happy about 🌸

75 percent of Third World imports of corn, barley, sorghum, and oats are fed to animals, not to people. Throughout the Third World, the production of meat is devastating the natural ecosystems, monopolizing the best local land, undermining the local food supply, and undercutting the efforts of the people to become food self-reliant. There are today millions of human beings in less-developed countries who are living and dying in despair, going hungry while their land, labor, and resources are being exploited so a tiny minority of people can eat meat.
- John Robbins (via vegan-veins)

  • Meat eater: what about the people who pick YOUR vegetables?
  • Vegan: Wait, what do you mean MY vegetables? don't you eat vegetables as well? What are you doing for these peoples rights other than using their struggles as a convenient "gotcha card" in attempts to silence vegans from talking about non human oppression? anything? And I'm guessing since you care so much about migrant workers in poor conditions, you are doing everything in your power to fight for those working in slaughterhouses and meat packing facilities since they are known to be one of the most dangerous and unsafe work places in the entire world, yes?
  • Meat eater: Well...
  • Vegan: Don't you think you should spend a little less time trying to belittle the efforts of people who are genuinely trying to cause the least amount of damage to animals, the environment and humans, and spend more time trying to make an effort of your own?
  • Meat eater: um, I mean...
  • Meat eater: bacon lol
