Sad but true! Screw spirituality. Where has that ever helped anyone in this world? Most spiritual people are so miserable that they have to meditate and pray and dream up a whole different world opposite of this one to be somewhat happy.
I don't remember a time in my life that I wasn't spiritual,
Spirituality has help me though many trying times when I drew upon it for strength,

Meditation and prayer have been proven to have many benefits on the lives and health of those who practices
Western medicine has discovered over the last 25 years that the body and mind are closely connected. Our health is tremendously affected by beliefs, emotions, thoughts, and stress. Meditation or quieting prayer is one practice which individuals can do for their own health or healing. Pioneering research by many, including Dr. Herbert Benson, Dr. Dean Ornish, Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., and Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D. has shown that individuals of any and all faith traditions can have a better health outcome with daily meditation or quieting prayer.
Over 700 studies have shown these effects of meditation:
* • Lowered oxygen consumption.
* Decreased heart rate, metabolic rate, and heart work load.
* Brings high blood pressure to normal.
* Drops cholesterol levels.
* Increases exercise tolerance.
* Lowers stress and anxiety as measured by higher skin resistance and decreased cortisol (the major stress hormone).
* Decreased muscle tension.
* Decreased depression and post-traumatic stress syndrome.
* Enhanced immune system by increasing activity of “natural-killer cells” and moderating the overall immune response.
* Increases serotonin production in the brain, improving insomnia, headaches, and obesity.
* Slower aging processes.
* Decreased irritability and moodiness
* Improved feelings of happiness.
* Better learning ability and memory.
* Reduces Pre-Menstrual Syndrome
* Improves post-operative healing.
* Reduces cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption, and drug abuse
* Calms the cardiovascular reactivity to stress
Continuing research has also shown meditation to have a treatment effect for a significant number of people with various ailments including hypertension, cardiac arrhythmia, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), heart disease, infertility, asthma, emphysema, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers, insomnia, and arthritis.
How does this work? Neuroscientists at Harvard Medical School used MRI technology to monitor brain activity while participants meditated. The left frontal cortex, the calmer side of the brain, was activated. This side controls the autonomic nervous system – the system that regulates all the functions we do not have to pay attention to in order to control, such as blood pressure and digestion. People with more activity in the left frontal lobe also are calmer and happier. Again research shows an increase in alpha waves – the relaxed brain waves.
Meditating brings about these dramatic effects in as little as a ten minute session. Generally we can say that regular, daily meditation practice of at least 45 minutes or more is most likely to bring many benefits to the individual.
People with more activity in the left frontal lobe also are calmer and happier.
Why are you so angry?

Two different fuels.
Heey, I've been reading your thread about haitian voodoo and Katrina and oilspill. Don't be bothered by people that do not grasp ideas of natural energies used and abused by humans.
The process, visible in the Gulf region as Katrina was a bit bigger then a hurricane. If you have the sight of the different groups that mentally tried to control weather and earth patterns, you would have noticed the struggle that has been taken place during the process for you known as Katrina. At the same time we had snow in desert, freakstorms in europe earthquakes, well I'm not going to tell you, figure that out. It was a wild ride. Katrina could have been so much worse if we had not fought it. And I know you can see it, just not sure you are looking behind that area. The earthquake in Haiti was a punishment for what some did app. 3 years ago. You know that too, i guess.
What is not clear to me, and probably never will, sometimes earth needs to balance what humans "unbalanced" like the EQ in Haiti. But some times Earth uses Humans to release negative energy not inflicted by humans and then that humans are used to reform that energy.
Another thing is this, it is not only Haiti as you know, Banda Atjeh, is wiped out for a similar reason.

So they are accidentally sending this negative energy into the universe or is it intentional?

If you havent studied the invisible you wont be able to see this, nor will it make any sense nor will I be able to prove it to you. It would be a waste of time if I tried to.
I'm glad you've studied and mastered the "invisible".
It seems like a very subjective field and good to use to avoid any necessity in providing facts for outlandish claims.

I think it completey sucks, that you would share a U2U from another member, in your thread, to bolster yourself.
That they sent you, A PRIVATE MESSAGE, which you chose to share, member name or not, is disgusting, on your behalf.
To even share a message to you personally, show's what type of person you are.
Rotten to the core, is my opinion!
