The Real Joy of Giving and Receiving

Entering a Sober New Age

Here’s a teaching I’ve heard posited by some in the new age family: The problems, issues, and relationship challenges in life are direct reflections of me. Or in other words: the drama on the outside reflects some ‘I caused it’ drama on the inside of me. I’ve beaten myself up enough over...

The Peach Colored Beings

The world or the realm of nature spirits is very interesting. I have touched upon this before in the astral posts and others. Most of the nature spirits live in the realms of the etheric which means they have a higher vibe or frequency than the beings in the realms of the astral. Before...

Why Millennials Are Obsessed With The Apocalypse

As a millennial, I’m aware that we come across as a puzzle piece of narcissism and niceness. We’re the selfie generation that uses social media to give back, attends protests and *tries* to buy fairtrade (when we can afford it). But it’s these very personality traits that make an...

Leftover Rice Could Make You Very Sick

On a scale from “1” to “listeria” the amount of stomach trouble I would expect a bowl of rice to give me falls around a “2,” but apparently the seemingly innocuous grain can inflict a lot of pain if it’s not stored properly. According to Benjamin Chapman, Food Safety Specialist from North...

Look For The Magic In Real Life

And so, we are here, already with the spring equinox behind us. We went into 2017 with some kind of optimism, which always is a good starting point, but somehow the metaphysically and spiritually engaged find it harder and harder being in this world and making sense of it. I strongly...

Do Not Eat Grapefruit With Any of These 32 Common Drugs

Medications are processed in your liver and small intestine by a specialized group of proteins called cytochrome P450 (CYPs). CYPs break down medications, reducing the blood levels of many of them. Grapefruit and a few of its close relatives, such as Seville oranges, tangelos, pomelos and...
