The best part of life is

Sea of Discovery , Ocean of Possibility

To date, we have explored less than five percent of the ocean

The ocean is the lifeblood of Earth, covering more than 70 percent of the planet’s surface, driving weather, regulating temperature, and ultimately supporting all living organisms. Throughout history, the ocean has been a vital source of sustenance, transport, commerce, growth, and inspiration.

Yet for all of our reliance on the ocean, 95 percent of this realm remains unexplored, unseen by human eyes.

Is THC the key to get in y-our dreams?

Marijuana affects dreams. Stoners say they don’t have dreams but if they stop smoking for a few days, they are flooded with dreams. Is there any psychological research supporting this?”

I can vouch for this fact. Once I stop smoking its a lucid paradise for the first 5 nights ….. any longer than that I feel like i’m living more of a life in my dreams then I am in physical reality and that did become scary/draining for me. I did not want to go to sleep because I just knew I was in for a very intense adventure. Honestly this is one of the reason I decided to begin smoking weed again, I was overwhelmed at the very detailed memories I was bringing back from dream experiences. I was literally running from the police after a prison break for 2 days IN A DREAM … 2 full days in a dream,  I will tell that story later. 

Sleep and wakefulness are both parts of a normal daily rhythm. Fish, cats, humans, and many other living things have daily cycles of activity and rest. This daily cycle is called a circadian rhythm. “Circadian” comes from the Latin root “circa dies” and means “about a day.” Both external and internal events can influence circadian rhythms. Morning light and alarm clocks trigger wakefulness. When isolated from normal time cues, the daily human cycle is about 24 hours, hence “circa dies.”

“Though sleep seems like a passive state to us, the brain is still very active. In fact, the EEG of a person falling asleep shows five stages of sleep: Stages 1 through 4 and a stage called rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Each stage is progressively deeper and the complete cycle is repeated several times during the night. When awakened during REM sleep, subjects report dreaming. So if dreams take place during REM sleep, the question for us is: Does smoking marijuana interrupt REM sleep?”

“To address this question, Feinberg, et al. (1975) compared the sleep patterns of experienced marijuana users on tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and a placebo. Feinberg, et al. (1975) reported reduced eye movement activity and less REM sleep in the THC condition. They also reported a REM rebound effect, that is more REM activity, on withdrawal from THC. So,there exists some scientific evidence that marijuana interferes with REM sleep.”

Could this be the way to induce dreaming/ REM activity … begin to take thc then go cold turkey?  Hmmmm 

If sleep is fascinating, dreaming is even more so. No one knows for sure the meaning or function of night-time dreams, but there is plenty of speculation. Freud believed dreams represented the royal road to theunconscious. They told us our secret desires and fears.

My Journey Through The Magic Mushroom Portal

The original Notes to what I experienced below…. a bit more detailed I think.

June 12 2013

InFocus247- Journey Mental trip saw one of the most beautiful train stations in the middle of the jungle the train tracks were gold or the reflection of the tracks looked gold from the sun reflecting off of them, After going through a combination of  lights and shapes it seemed to be a transitional stage kaleidoscope like effect going from place to place soon after i was climbing up what seemed to be a tree but it was very tall it lead into the sky it was so tall. Once i climbed high enough i saw i was able to see a very beautiful river/ocean the feeling gave me a rushing sense of happiness and I felt my heart expanding it made me take a deep breath it felt as if I were there. The next sensation or urge I felt was to jump, so  i jumped off  of the tree into what seemed like a sky dive  i remember  two entities flying after me I felt a brief thought of fear as if I weren’t supposed to jump but water was below so I reassured my self I was ok but not only that… I can fly  so I began flying I flew under two  bridges and then remember soon after standing by some steps and something or someone told me to go up the stairs and  I didn’t want to but it insisted I do so I went up. I remember three sets of doors I was allowed in the first two, it felt as if I was following two people. I tried to go in the third door but it was blocked by a a dark dense energy. I remember trying to penetrate the door twice but it pushed me out. The feeling was almost like I was a magnet and there was a second magnet in the door so when I pushed to go in mentally I was pushed back out. I was fascinated with being limited yet confused why i could not enter this door. I noticed  that the door formed into a scorpion like purple being and I remember telling it I’m not afraid of you but also getting the feeling that it is not about fear but about respecting the boundaries of sacred places I may not be ready to experience yet. It stung me on my right leg and I felt in the physical part of my body after the initial sting it sent three to four jolts in my legs.  I turned around and began moving away from the door/scorpion entity then the same entity(I think) that insisted I go up to the doors helped me go back down the stairs and told me I don’t belong here you do not know what you are doing open your eyes and return. I opened my eyes and I was back.

Only observe don’t be so quick to in force your will on the astral plane until you fully understand the effects of doing so.

Saw a labyrinth of flowers but I chose not stay inside  and I flew above it

The concert of peace and free energy

Breath is like the singing bowl  a steady consistent pattern and rhythm you will be able to feel a steady vibration also raising it as well

The first sound I remember hearing was a gong it struck me as weird being I was in Brooklyn and no gongs were near by to my knowledge but I felt as if I was in two places at once and now feeling the sound/vibration of the second place I’ve seemed to meditate into.

Ancient Egyptian Scrolls Document Natural Herbs

Herbs played a huge role in Egyptian medicine. Proof comes from burial sites, tombs and underground temples where archeologists have found extensive sets of medical documents and scrolls, including the Ebers Papyrus, the Edwin Smith Papyrus, the Hearst Papyrus, and the London Medical Papyrus, which contained the earliest documented awareness of tumors. Egyptians knew about the healing powers of honey. In fact, the first official recognition of the importance of honey dates back to the first Egyptian Dynasty and the “Sealer of the Honey.” Iegyptn Niuserre’s Sun temple, bee-keepers are shown in hieroglyphics blowing smoke into hives as they are removing honey-combs. The honey was immediately jarred and sealed and could therefore be kept for years, and it was used for the production of medicines and ointments. They even used it as a natural antibiotic.

Remedies from the ancient Ebers Papyrus scrolls:

• Aloe vera was used to alleviate burns, ulcers, skin diseases and allergies

• Basil was written up as heart medicine

• Balsam Apple (Apple of Jerusalem) was used as a laxative and as a liver stimulant

• Bayberry was prescribed for diarrhea, ulcers and hemorrhoids

• Caraway soothed digestion and was a breath freshener

• Colchicum (citrullus colocynthus or meadow saffron) soothed rheumatism and reduced swelling

• Dill was recognized for laxative and diuretic properties

• Fenugreek was prescribed for respiratory disorders and to cleanse the stomach and calm the liver and pancreas

• Frankincense was used for throat and larynx infections, and to stop bleeding and vomiting

• Garlic was given to the Hebrew slaves daily to give them vitality and strength for building the pyramids

Book Select: The Fifth Mountain

Image

This is one of the books I am currently thumbing through. It was passed on to me by my father.  I began reading it yesterday, Im about half way through and it is very fascinating. The first book I read by this author was The Alchemist which was very deep. The author Paulo Coelho has a way of painting scenes using his characters emotion for paint, but leaving space on the canvas for you to draw your own conclusions and insights. I will leave a few quotes from the book below. Grab a copy or score a download!

“There are moments when troubles enter our lives and we can do nothing to avoid them.
But they are there for a reason. Only when we have overcome them will we understand why they were there.”

“If you have a past with which you feel dissatisfied, then forget it, now. Imagine a new story for your life and believe in it. Focus only on the moments when you achieved what you desired, and that strength will help you to get what you want.”

“Stop thinking about life and choose to live it”

“This was freedom; to feel what the heart desired with no thought to the opinion of the rest… She was free, for love liberates.”

“All life battles teach us something, even those we lose”

How does the moon really effect us?

All objects including stars, planets and satellite bodies along with their gross (tangible) attributes emanate subtle (intangible) frequencies. These physical attributes and subtle-frequencies affect us in varying degrees at a physical and subtle-level.-moon-a

The frequencies emanating from the Moon affect the frequencies of the mental body, i.e. mind of human beings. By ‘mind’ we mean our feelings, emotions and desires. The mind consists of the conscious mind and the sub-conscious mind. Within the sub-conscious mind we have a number of impressions that are embedded that decide our basic nature and personality. We are however not aware of the thoughts or impressions in our sub-conscious mind. These impressions get collected over a number of lifetimes.

These impressions in our mind are the catalysts for all our thoughts and subsequent actions. Both the impressions and our thoughts have their own subtle-frequencies.

Image

The moon frequencies have the capacity to make the thought frequencies from the impressions in our sub-conscious mind to surface to the conscious mind. Once in the conscious mind we become aware of them. Thus one will be influenced as per the predominant impressions in one’s mind. We have explained this in more detail in the next section.

Similarly the moon also affects the mind of animals. However as the sub-conscious mind of animals consists of impressions related only to basic desires such as hunger, sex, sleep etc., the heightened thoughts are related to these basic instincts only.
