September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Childhood cancer is the number 1 disease killer of kids in America, and incidence rates are on the rise. Yet less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) budget goes to fund childhood cancer research. PLEASE LIKE AND REBLOG and let everyone know that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month!
“Honestly I’m so sick of seeing rich-girl fitness. Don’t show me pretty vegan smoothies in mason jars held by a girl with perfect makeup, a manicure, and a color-coordinated running outfit. Show me diets and workouts that I can manage when I’m working 13 hours days and living on a budget. Show me how to eat healthy when I have 5 minutes for lunch. Show me small things I can do to help my body. Show me workout plans that I can do outside of a gym when I can’t afford a membership. I don’t have time. I don’t have money. Half the time I don’t have the motivation to get up in the morning. But I have a body. I want to be healthy.” Via Tumblr by rissagoosman 🙏🏼 Most of us are willing to make the necessary sacrifices but these superficial women we see on social apps are just too…fake. Be conscious on whom you see as your “motivation”. #society #tumblr #reblog #reblogging #fitness #fitspo #lifestyle #awareness #health #thought #wordsofwisdom #words #truth #beconscious #ladies #listenupladies #listenup #message #stateofmind
1. The pineal gland is formed at 49 days within the human embryo: the same time that Tibetans believe it takes for a soul to reincarnate. And the same amount of days that the human embryo becomes either male or female.
2. In the ancient Vedic energy system of the chakras, the pineal gland is referred to as the ‘Ajna’ or ‘Third Eye’ chakra. Modern studies reveal that the gland’s watery interior contains rods and cones - just like those found in the retina of your eyes. Your ‘Third Eye’ has a structure remarkably similar to your two physical ones. This is why when you visualize something strongly enough, you can literally see it “in your mind’s eye”.
3. Your pineal gland is important to your physical and mental health, and its wellbeing has been linked to memory, creativity, intuition and critical thinking skills. It is also sensitive to light and plays an important role in your sleep and waking cycles. When light strikes the retina of your eyes, it travels through a tiny nerve system and into the gland. When the light goes off - like at night - it sends a signal to the pineal to begin secreting melatonin, which activates your nervous system to go into sleep mode.
4. Studies show your pineal gland secretes a substance called Dimethyltriptamine (DMT), which you may be familiar with as a hallucinatory substance found in the South American shamanic brew called Ayahuasca. The interesting thing about DMT is that it causes experiences which can take you well beyond common states of awareness. This is perhaps why the pineal gland is known in many cultures as the ‘Seat of the Soul’, the ‘Gateway to the Universe’, the ‘Mind’s Eye’ and the ‘Doorway to Higher Realms’.
With awareness there comes choice. And so you are able to say: “I allow this moment to be as it is.” And then, suddenly, where before there was irritation, there is now a sense of aliveness and peace. And out of that comes right action.
