Trauma Healing Exercises

Trauma Healing Exercises and Self-Mastery

To process trauma you need to first fully understand it. This is a necessary step on the road to self-mastery, and freeing yourself from the past. In my experience, psychiatrists and other “trauma experts” know a great deal about placating the ego and not enough on how to actually deconstruct it. This is why it is so difficult for most people to get past their trauma, because they aren’t given the proper knowledge and tools. There’s more to trauma than just suppressed fears and a splintered mind. Lesson 1: You Are Not Your Ego Lesson 2: Biochemistry and Mental Health […]
Self Empowerment

Self Empowerment Techniques That Actually Work

There’s more to self empowerment than feel good aphorisms and confidence boosters.  Up until now, that’s likely all you’ve been given, and that’s exactly why nothing has worked. To be empowered means to be in control. After all, you are the Arbiter of your own life. If you don’t start off from that premise, you’re doing everything wrong. You have to be in the mindset that you are in the driver’s seat, and that your destination is always in your hands. The problem with this is, it requires a certain level of responsibility. This is something that cheeky feel good […]

Dantonaire, the Dream Walker

by Anita Angelspirit
We’re truly blessed to live in such an age where a wealth of esoteric knowledge is available at our fingertips. As consciousness expands around the globe, deeper truths are being revealed. Bigger mysteries are being unraveled. Dreams are being explored. Dream Work is an area once reserved for only the deepest of esoteric circles. Within the Inner Mysteries, adepts would lead their students on virtual tours of other worlds, aided by trance meditations and mind-altering substances. What we encounter on the other side is a topic of much debate. Yes, we know there are beings or forces out there alien […]

Insight Meditation Unlocking Awareness Matthew Lovett

Insight Meditation: Unlocking Your Awareness

There are many forms of meditation that all seek to in some way transform your awareness. Insight meditation specifically, focuses on the senses, and how becoming more attuned to them can allow one to understand themselves and the nature of reality. It is thought to be, according to many sages, the general form of meditation practice taught by the Buddha himself, as it upholds and stays true to the core tenets of Buddhism. Insight meditation, also known as Vipassana, is a way of truly unlocking the awareness. It increases your capacity to comprehend all sensation, thereby increasing your ability to […]
Value of Strong Mind Propaganda Culture

The Value of a Strong Mind in a Propaganda Culture

When did truth start taking a backseat to opinion? When weak minds gave way to the propaganda culture we have today. To be fair, society has always relied on personal conviction and even fantasy to a certain degree. However, it was usually to a certain end. Myths, for example, or teaching tales, were stories of fantasy created to teach a lesson or impart moral value. Personal convictions might be few and far between, and based on a misrepresentation of available data. Perfect example: spontaneous generation. Now, however, we seem to be living in an age where every bonkers opinion not […]
Mental Toughness in a Weak-Minded Age

Mental Toughness in a Weak-Minded Age

Your mind is the most valuable asset you have. Training it, honing it, and mastering it has long been considered a pathway to a more fulfilled, balanced life. Mental toughness used to be a prerequisite to living – now it seems like far too many people are running on autopilot, willing to throw away their awareness and autonomy for false peace of mind and numbness from any outside stimuli. Thinking too much is an inconvenience in a world that doesn’t take very kindly to intelligence and even facts. We’re living in an anti-scientific, opinion-orientated, weak-minded age. What can you do […]
Benefits of Guided Meditation

Powerful Benefits of Guided Meditation

Meditation is becoming more popular as its benefits become more widely known. Yoga, martial arts, and other body mastery techniques are working their way into the mainstream, so it’s not surprising that meditation has as well. Yet, there are still several powerful meditation styles that haven’t yet gained as much traction, guided meditation being one of them. If you have never heard of the term before, guided meditation is simply the art of meditating while making use of some kind of outside guide. While traditional meditation usually encourages you to shut out all noise and distraction outside of yourself, this […]
Intense Focus

Intense Focus Meditation For Mental Clarity and Grounding

Over the years I’ve learned a wide variety of meditation techniques, all of which serve different purposes and have different ranges of effectiveness. If you’re looking for a powerful  meditation that will truly center and ground you, I find it helpful to draw on more advanced schools of body mastery such as Wing Chun and Tai Chi rather than basic yoga. The key to a successful focus meditation is in the breath. You want to really get absorbed in the rhythm and feeling of your breathwork. To feel the breath is to feel your flow of energy. Once you are […]
