Practice Mindfulness by Drawing Mandalas Based on Ancient Rituals

The original use of the word mandala in a religious context was first used by Hindus and Buddhists. Today, the concept of a mandala resonates with spirituality and meditation as a mean to center the self in the present. However, Carl Jung was a pioneer in the use of a mandala to travel to the subconscious, which helps people to be aware of problems that need a solution. On the other hand, the appearance of mandala-like symbols in the religious context of other cultures brings to our attention that there is a cross-cultural pattern related to the circle. Dances and rituals can be used to inspire the creation of mandalas.

A Journey Into a Living Mandala

Mandalas are found in almost all coloring books for adults. The reason behind is that they are connected to the Mindfulness movement that links Buddhism and meditation with a positive influence on our mental health. The mandalas are also used by some therapists as a window to the subconscious. I started exploring why is that a mandala can be embraced by anyone that would like to use coloring books for adults and I ended seeing folkloric dances as living mandalas.

9 Reasons El Niño Did NOT Cause Zika to Spread

It's déjà vu: another UK study pointing to the weather - instead of the WHO and CDC - as the reason the Zika virus is spreading. Early in 2016, Wellcome Trust and Oxford U scientists (funded by Bill Gates and others) assured us there was a miniscule chance of anyone becoming infected with the Zika virus at the Rio Summer Olympics. Now, instead of acknowledging grave ommissions and a lack of accountability we are told to blame nature. Fortunately, it seems the public at large is becoming wise to this ruse.

Zika Shrivels Testes, Drops Testosterone, and May Cause Infertility

It's not surprising that since the Zika virus has been found in semen for over six months, the virus continues to replicate in the male reproductive tract. And in mice, it appears to wreck havoc - destroying not only stem cells and sperm - but the cells that provide support and structure to the testes. In just three weeks, the horrifying results were: a 90 percent reduction in testicle size, low testosterone levels, low fertility, and eventual sterility. Should these results be found in human studies, the message is clear: men, women, and children need to do everything possible to protect themselves from the Zika virus.

Zika Virus: Our Tainted Blood Supply

When various public health authorities and the media repeatedly said that the Zika virus is only in the bloodstream for a few days to a week, I wondered how that could be possible. Every week or two, a new finding revealed the Zika virus seems to hide in certain regions of the body - even becoming more virulent in some cases. So, I delved into how safe our blood supply is (both in the U.S. and Canada) and was completely floored by what appears to be systematic, intentional oversights by those who are trusted to ensure the safety of our blood supply.
