The competitive nature of today’s modern market makes advertisement a golden tool to boost business because it involves the emotions of the people.

Advertisements actually work with something that is beyond our conscious thinking, it is our subconscious mind.

Write a New Story This Year-Clearing Old Paradigms

Time is running and everything is changing so fast, we are in a continuous flux but we are often very much unaware of this fact because of the temporary appearance of our life.

Here is another year ahead and if we forget clearing old paradigms in our mind then we will get the same results as before and we will find ourselves lagging much behind than the world.

We all have experienced gain and loss in all aspects of our life in this year, for some it was a great year and for some it was not but what matters is what the next year is going to bring in our lives.

It would be an easy task to think and believe that everything happens without any cause or reason and not trying to improve anything, but on the other hand we can accept that we are responsible for what life brings to us and start making changes in order to make the next year better than before.

We must know that everything in this world is changing continuously, and whatever good or bad results we are getting now are temporary. So, holding on to past is not a very good idea. Continue reading

Clarity of mind and body depends upon the intake of diet that we all take in our day to day life.

Humor Can Change Your Life – Mental Benefits of Laughter

You underestimate the power of laughter, don’t you? We all have heard about the mental benefits of laughter like it can heal people, reduce stress, clear mind, etc but actually it is much more than that what we think.

When we laugh we actually use suppressed negative energy in a positive way, this saves us from many mental as well as physical issues (suppressed energy can express itself as a disease or physical discomfort).

HOW CAN HUMOR CHANGE YOUR LIFE?

Whenever we meet or have a conversation with people, we are also dealing with them on a spiritual level.

People with positive vibrations bring others into the same vibration level and the opposite happens as well. (This is why we feel so good after meeting some people whereas some leaves us with an undesirable feeling; our feelings are actually a tool to analyze the vibrations of people and places) Continue reading

Best Time to Induce Lucid Dreams-Set Your Alarm Clock

The best time to induce lucid dreams according to the experts is the last few hours before you usually wake up, it could be one or two hours prior to the normal time at which you normally wake up.

Though I have always been interested in lucid dreaming for years, I learned something very important about how to induce lucid dreams from Andrew Holecek’s Dream Sculpting program, it is all about the “awareness”.

Our chances of becoming conscious inside our dreams highly depends on how much conscious awareness we have in our waking life, before stumbling upon that program I hardly ever understood that there is a great connection between my waking life and dream world, in fact, the ancient Tibetan dream yoga is not much different from our normal lucid dreams when it comes to maintaining awareness.

The reason why these few hours before our usual waking is perfect for lucid dreaming is because we are highly aware during those times, our mind goes to the rapid eye moment phase which is the nearest to the waking stage and that’s where we experience dreams. Continue reading
