It is all too easy to get sucked into the computer and forget to stretch and move the body. This is just quick reminder to get up and take a quick computer break. Stand up, stretch, walk around a little bit, and maybe even do some jogging in place or a quick yoga pose or two! Try to do this at least once an hour. Otherwise, the longer you sit, the worse impact it has on your long-term health.
In a world where everything seems to be going crazy, it's easy to just fall into despair and lose hope. Sometimes it's hard to justify feeling positive when other people are suffering. Perhaps you feel guilty sometimes for the times you do feel happy because what right to you have to feel good when other people are in pain?
The thing is, your feeling bad doesn't help other people who already feel bad. Finding inner peace for yourself helps you to be in a better space to help others. You'll have more energy and more compassion.
Lady Gaga sunk to a new low at her recent SXSW performance by bringing a so-called "vomit artist" on stage and having the young women puke green slop all over her. The disgusting performance brings to mind the green vomit spewed by the demon-possessed girl in The Exorcist, so it's no wonder that a lot of people feel Gaga's latest antics are further proof of her allegiance to Lucifer.
What crosses the line between something that is simply a Halloween gag and black magic? Part of it is the intention. I will put on my New Age hat here and explain that everything has an energetic vibration. Happy, positive music will have a more healing effect on you than negative, dark music. Lyrics matter. The type of music also can have energetic effects. For example, heavy bass activates the first chakra, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but if that's all you listen to, with "lower vibration" lyrics, it will make you out of balance and too focused on earthly pleasures like cheap sex and materialism. At any rate, the people in charge know *exactly* what they are doing pushing sex and dark magic in events like the Grammys. They are trying to activate lower chakra impulses and dampen the higher chakras that connect you to the divine. The end result is you become an animalistic sheeple, unable to think for yourself beyond getting your next "fix" of drugs, alcohol, porn, or whatever else keeps you from being "empowered individuals" and taking control back from the elite.
Why are exorcisms on the rise in Mexico? Because of an increasing belief that Mexican drug cartel activity is being fueled by demonic possession. Given that drug cartel members are worshiping a dark "anti-saint" that goes by the name "Santa Muerte" and appears as a skeletal mockery of the Virgin Mary, it's no wonder. They are making human sacrifices to this demonic avatar and celebrating death and mayhem.
Actively engaging in such activity is sure to not just attract demonic forces but invite them in. Once possessed, it's hard to escape without external help.
I used to be a feminist when I was younger. This was the early 90s. I needed a cause, and at the time I was concerned about issues such as abortion, the glass ceiling, and sexual harassment. The mid-90s brought us "post-feminism," which was all about being so-called "sex positive." It was supposedly "empowering" to be pro-sex, and this was a distinct turn from the more "puritanical" feminism of days yore. No longer was Andrea Dworkin, who called all male/female sex rape, a leading voice. Camille Paglia was.
Once you clue in to how often the media pushes some flimsy "study" to promote a particular agenda or viewpoint, you never quite look at them the same. A case in point is the recent "study" done in New Zealand that purports to claim that sex and alcohol provide more "happiness" than children or religion.
I'll never forget one of the first experiences I had with WebMD. It was still early on in the website's history, and I had stumbled across an article that mentioned various types of exercise. In this article, the author had described "spinning" as some form of dance, similar to what the "Whirling Dervishes" do! I was shocked that a website claiming to have accurate medical information couldn't even get a basic exercise class found at most gyms correct. ("Spinning" involves sitting on a stationary bicycle...spinning the wheels, get it?)
