What is the Secret Law of Attraction?

Are you fed up with the notions of what you're supposed to do?
We're all taught early in life that we're supposed to grow up and work for a company like an indentured servant for 40 years and then fade away at retirement with a company pension that barely covers the necessities of daily existence. However, people are becoming more enlightened and educated, realizing that there's a better way. You can have a prosperous life and feel fulfilled!

The Power of a Positive Attitude

The power of a positive attitude cannot be underestimated. The American minister and author of the book The Power of Positive Thinking Norman Vincent Peale wrote, "Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure. The way you think about a fact may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. You are overcome by the fact because you think you are."

Mindfulness

Section: Meditation

Sati

excerpt from Mindfulness in Plain English by Venerable Henepola Gunaratana

Mindfulness is the English translation of the Pali word 'Sati.' Sati is an activity. What exactly is that? Well, this is one of those questions without a precise answer, at least not in words. Words are devised by the symbolic levels of the mind and they describe those realities with which symbolic thinking deals. Mindfulness (Sati) is pre-symbolic. It is not shackled to logic. Nevertheless, Mindfulness can be experienced - rather easily - and it can be described, as long as you keep in mind that the words are only fingers pointing at the moon. They are not the thing itself. The actual experience lies beyond the words and above the symbols. Mindfulness could be described in completely different terms than will be used here and each description could still be correct.

Brainwave Meditation

Section: Meditation

Brainwave meditation has its beginnings in the seventies, when Transcendental Meditation (TM) was in vogue (remember the Beatles - Maharishi connection?). At that time many studies were performed in order to substantiate from a scientific perspective the amazing effects credited to meditation. The results were intriguing to say the least.

I unjunked my body!

Section: Nutrition

Do you need a detox?
  • Are you often tired ?
  • Do you get headaches frequently ?
  • Do you have hard time losing weight ?
  • Are you bloated or retaining water ?
  • Mental cloudiness ?
  • Is you skin getting bad ?
If you answered “Yes” to more than three questions above there is a good chance your system experience a toxic overload.

Detoxing once or twice a year is often recommended as a solution.

Every day our bodies are exposed to toxins from the water we drink, the air we breathe and especially from the processed foods we eat. If our bodies get overwhelmed with toxins, our liver suffers and we start seeing the effect on our health: our skin is affected, we get tired, we retain water, get headaches, digestion problems, bad breath and find it especially hard to loose weight.

Researches have now discovered the biological cause of those stubborn pounds: toxic particles bind water in the body’s soft tissue and inhibit your metabolism from burning fat efficiently.

It definitely makes sense that we get tired and bloated from too many toxins from our foods and from our environment, but gaining weight and retaining water are not as obvious. Well, it is now scientifically proven that detoxifying our bodies helps to lose weight too.

Less weight, a brighter cleaner skin, means a more beautiful and healthier person.

Conclusion: to loose weight it may be necessary to cleanse your body first: Effective detox diet
