How Gratitude Changes You and Your Brain
By Joel Wong, Joshua Brown
Posted December 25, 2019
New research is starting to explore how gratitude works to improve our mental health.
Recent evidence suggests that a promising approach is to complement psychological counseling with additional activities that are not too taxing for clients but yield high results. In our own research, we have zeroed in on one such activity: the practice of gratitude. Indeed, many studies over the past decade have found that people who consciously count their blessings tend to be happier and less depressed.
The problem is that most research studies on gratitude have been conducted with well-functioning people. Is gratitude beneficial for people who struggle with mental health concerns? And, if so, how? More…
5 Reasons Why Inner Peace Is Important
by Chris Shea
Posted December 24, 2019
So many of us are seeking inner peace that the question of why inner peace is important comes to the forefront. Inner peace is a concept which I speak and write about quite frequently. For me, the pursuit of inner peace is more important and vital then the search for happiness or success. Happiness is nothing more but a fleeting emotion, and success can be taken from us just as easily as it can be gained. But true inner peace is permanent.
Inner peace is not just for those who dedicate their lives to prayer or spirituality. Inner peace is attainable regardless of our lifestyle or occupation. As I have previously written, inner peace can be found as we learn to mindfully view ourselves and the world around us. More…
Random Acts of Kindness Boost Your Self-Esteem

Random acts of kindness can boost your self-esteem. There’s this widespread belief that you cannot love other people until you love yourself. To a certain extent, this is true, in that, when you care for yourself you are in the best position possible to care for others. However, you don’t have to wait until your self-esteem is healthy to show kindness towards others. It’s not that black-and-white. Your relationship with others is a mutual interplay. You work on yourself so that you can be there for others, and you show compassion towards others as a way to work on yourself. Therefore, when your self-esteem is low, it can really help to do random acts of kindness.
Random acts of kindness boost your self-esteem because they go against the notion that you aren’t valuable. When you have low self-esteem, you may come to believe negative things about yourself that are untrue, distorted, exaggerated, black-and-white, and deeply harmful to your well being. You may have this opinion that you are useless, a burden, worthless, incompetent, and of no value to anyone around you. More…
Taking Back Our Power
by Dr. Bruce Lipton
Posted December 17, 2019
When operating from the conscious mind, we are the creators of our lives. However, when we operate through the subconscious mind, our lives are shaped by the raw downloaded programs we acquired in the first seven years of our lives. Science has now recognized that we only use the creative conscious mind about 5% of the day. For 95% of our lives, the conscious mind disconnects from controlling our behaviour while its attention is redirected inwards in thought.
This insight is profound because it reveals that we are not creating the lives we desire but are unconsciously (through the subconscious mind) manifesting lives that are coherent with the beliefs we downloaded as children. Since up to 70% of the downloaded beliefs acquired before age seven are disempowering, self-sabotaging, or limiting, we experience stress from the programs that undermine our conscious mind’s wishes, desires, and aspirations.

What does it mean if you have a dream and then it happens in real life?
by Helen Elizabeth Williams
Posted December 13, 2019
From ancient times to the present, various cultures have regarded dreams as a gateway to a magical dimension that allows us to predict the future or communicate with spirits or other immaterial entities. Many of these beliefs are still part of contemporary popular culture even in the West.
For Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, the creator of analytical psychology, this creative power utilizes the impressions of the previous day, diurnal remnants and our vital experience to build images and stories of our dreams.
According to Jung, the Freudian approach to the subconscious as a reservoir of depressed sexual desire is not enough to explain content that is not related to the individual’s personal history. More…
4 Reasons Why the Law of Attraction isn’t Working for You
by Nikki Sapp
Posted December 11, 2019
It sounds really magical and amazing in theory, and for those people who dare to open their minds to a metaphysical reality in which there are forces of the universe that we can utilize to cast our dreams into fruition it also sounds do-able. As one begins to start having tangible experiences with unseen forces, they also begin to feel into the magic of how energy works.
So why is it that the promises of law of attraction of “you can have anything you want,” seem to elude so many? Sometimes it seems like those that are the most in tune with spiritual concepts and the universe are the very ones who find it the most hard to not only participate in earthly life but also to bring their visualizations into physical form.
There are certain “rules” to the law of attraction that many of its promoters don’t spend enough time touching on, and because of this, many of those that attempt to follow the concepts become even more confused and disappointed by their lack of ability to manifest. More…
