6 New Year’s Work Resolutions

MiddleMe

I actually don’t have the habit of making new year resolutions because I know I don’t keep them and when I don’t keep them, it actually made me felt that I have not achieved my goals. And boy, it is not a great feeling. However, people kept asking me what is my new year resolutions year after year and I devised my own new year resolutions in a general way that I can achieve during work without breaking a sweat.

Most people have personal new year resolutions, but I found out that evolving the personal resolutions that ties in with my work a lot easier and more productive too, to upkeep them. I have listed out some of my 2015 resolutions that I managed to achieve.

What Your Favorite ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Character Says About You

#1, it had to be #1. (Like the person I reblogged.) Maybe a little #3. No, No, NO! It has to be Luke. It has ALWAYS been Luke. When I was a naïve kid, I admired Luke the naïve kid. When I was a journeyman professional, I admired Luke as the same.

And, now that I am a reclusive old man who might teach someone if they are willing to try, it is STILL Luke! But, he is not an option in this list. Looks like it is back to #1, Han Solo, with a tiny dash of #3. But, I am more scavenger than smuggler, just not garage sales; used book stores, instead.

Then again, maybe BB-8 is the best pick….

Astrology and Psychotherapy, Part 1: Fundamentals and Cosmic Empathy

Michael MacLafferty | Oakland Therapist

“We are born at a given moment in a given place and like vintage years of wine we have the qualities of the year and of the season in which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything else.” — C. G. Jung

Simply put, astrology is the study of the relationships of the objects in our solar system, relative to our viewpoint on Earth. Each object symbolizes a particular concept, or archetype, and the angles between them in the sky indicate when and how they are interacting. The sky itself is divided into twelve equal parts, providing the backdrop of this celestial drama.

Our universe is dominated by cycles, and has always been the basis for our measurement of time—from the movement of the Sun and Moon measuring days, months, and seasons to the vibrations of crystals and atoms counting out milli- and nanoseconds. The movement of…

Debatable News

Debatable News: Mainstream to Tinfoil Hat and more

We focus on the more controversial news.  Almost all of the content is in the form of “reblogs” from other sources.  Just because we reblog it does NOT mean we endorse it, agree with it, or even thing it is legitimate.  We do NO fact checking, so you are “own your own” regarding the question of veracity.  What we do is echo out to our readers the most controversial, and sometimes “crazy,” news that we can find.  (Some of it is quite mainstream, and some of it is not.)

(Extremely Powerful) Crown Chakra Awakening – 963 Hz – Theta Binaural Beats

Sanctuary of Horus Behdety

This video contains the 963 Hz Solfeggio Frequency along with 6 Hz Theta Binaural Beats for Crown Chakra Awakening.

===== General Questions =====

Q. What are Binaural Beats?

“Binaural Beats” is a term given to playing one sound frequency in one ear, and another sound frequency in the opposite ear, creating a two-tone effect in the mid-brain that is actually perceived to be one tone. This causes an “Entrainment” effect in the brain that has a variety of results depending on the frequency.

Q. What are Binaural Beats good for?

Lots of things. Meditation, Relaxation, Stress Relief, Deeper Sleep, Pain Relief, Mind Expansion, Brain Hemisphere Syncronization, and the list goes on and on.

Pretty much any element of the Mind / Body complex can be improved using Binaural Beats, which again is just Brainwave Entrainment.

Q. Do Binaural Beats Actually Work?

Indeed. Many scientific studies (especially as of late) have…

Myths About Meditation

Hālau 'Aha Hūi Lanakila™

What is Meditation?Meditation is an art of realizing and mastering self. Meditation does not mean the art of obtaining something from outside as it is an art of unlocking your energy from within. It is an art and it can be learn by any person. Some person does meditation for few years and after that they give up it as they were expecting miracles which is a wrong way of looking at meditation. Meditation allow you to enjoy life. It is not the path of running away from family life as it is an art of living a family and social life at it’s best. Now lets look at the first myth.

Miscommunication Madness

kerrylouiseyoga

This is an issue that is really bothering me this week. It’s always made me shake my head or roll my eyes when someone is going a little bonkers about how someone said something ‘out of order’ over text to a vague social media update that is perfectly timed with something someone did to upset someone else.

Yes, I understand that it’s seemingly easier to hide behind your phone or your computer and say what you really think is on your mind, but perhaps the reason you’re feeling so brave is because you’re not faced with facial expressions, tone of voice, gesture or body language. And in turn, the person on the receiving end of your blast of anger is in the same boat, and without these clarifying cues, we then “fill in the blanks” with our worries and assumptions.
