on following your heart  and intuition

🌸✨Long post ahead, but I did genuinely pour my heart and soul into it✨🌸

If you’re reading this, I want to give you the purest, most sincere and genuine advice I have been given myself - always, always, always follow your heart. While your intuition is your guiding system, it is the heart that should always be followed. The way I interpret intuition is that it is the information we receive from the Universe, God or whatever superpower you believe guides you. However, in my opinion this information could be misleading. Be aware I don’t mean this in a bad way! What I mean is that this information could be affected by different circumstances, such as your current mindset, the vibrational level you are on, etc. As you all know, our vibrational frequency is highly affected by our thoughts. So if you’re thinking a certain way, you’ll be attracting similar energy, and the guidance (information) you’ll be receiving will be matching that vibration. And the information may not always be relevant to the desires of the heart. But, again in my opinion, it is only if you please the heart that you will be truly happy. And also you will know you have made the right choice. The heart can never fool you - the mind certainly can, judgement can get clouded, but the heart … the heart is the core of who and what you are. Always trust the heart.

Another thing I want to add: when you make a decision based on what you feel in your heart, you know that even if you look back at it after a while, you won’t regret it. Because you did whatever you did to make yourself happy, to please the heart. This means you were true to yourself! And being true to yourself, means you are being genuine and authentic. I think this is one of the first steps you need to take to be enlightened with something others haven’t been yet. ♡

Disclaimer: these are my own interpretations and conclusions I have come to, based on my own experience, books i’ve read, discussion I’ve had. Of course, everyone is free to disagree with what I’ve written and this is not a step-by-step guide that needs to be followed. Even tho we are all made of the same stardust and magic, we all have free will and see the world in different ways. My main point was do what makes you happy. Do you.

Disclaimer 2: if you want to express your opinion, and you happen to disagree, please do it in a mindful way. I would love to hear what you have to say, but please … only positive vibes ✨

So, our physics teacher has the strange idea of motivating his students by letting each of us present a physical phenomenal we find interesting to our classmates in a 5-minutes-presentation. And now I need something that is interesting for everyone - even people that usually don't care for physics -, but has interesting facts for someone who's interested in it, too (preferably with an easy experiment). You don't happen to have any ideas, do you?

First of all, your professor is awesome for taking the time to do this. Of the top of my mind, the best one I have is Chladni figures.

Basically take a flat metal plate, fix it at the center and spray some fine sand particles on it.

Using a violin bow, gently excite any edge of the plate to magically witness these beautiful normal mode patterns ( known as Chladni patterns/figures ) forming on the plate.

Also notice that by pinching the plate at different points, the pattern obtained changes.

There is a whole lot of physics that goes behind such a simple phenomenon and I dare say we understand it completely. There are lots of questions on these figures that we have no answer for!

Hope this helps with your presentation. Have a good one!

In their newest video, the Slow Mo Guys recreated one of my favorite effects: vibration-driven droplet ejection. For this, they use a Chinese spouting bowl, which has handles that the player rubs after partially filling the bowl with water. By rubbing, a user excites a vibrational mode in the bowl. Watch the GIFs above and you can actually see the bowl deforming steadily back and forth. This is the fundamental mode, and it’s the same kind of vibration you’d get from, say, ringing a bell. 

Without a high-speed camera, the bowl’s vibration is pretty hard to see, but it’s readily apparent from the water’s behavior in the bowl. In the video, Gav and Dan comment that the ripples (actually Faraday waves) on the water always start from the same four spots. That’s a direct result of the bowl’s movement; we see the waves starting from the points where the bowl is moving the most, the antinodes. In theory, at least, you could see different generation points if you manage to excite one of the bowl’s higher harmonics. The best part, of course, is that, once the vibration has reached a high enough amplitude, the droplets spontaneously start jumping from the water surface!

5 Powerful Ways to Raise Your Vibration

1. Accept where you are and what you are feeling. Wherever you are and whatever you are feeling right now is okay.

2. Move your attention to something that makes you feel better. Even if you feel slightly better, it’s an improvement and it’s working.

3. Simply be aware. Become aware of your senses—feel the water when you wash your hands, enjoy the taste of the food you are eating, etc. Try meditation.

4. Appreciate what you have. Think of all the great things and people you are grateful for. 

5. Acts of Kindness. Do big or tiny acts of kindness for anyone you wish, including yourself. You can write someone a poem, draw something, or just tell someone how much you appreciate them. “Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple effect with no logical end.”  —Scott Adams

You can choose to do all five of these, a few of these, or even just one of these, and it will work.

An old alchemist gave the following consolation to one of his disciples: “No matter how isolated you are and how lonely you feel, if you do your work truly and conscientiously, unknown friends will come and seek you.”

- C. G. Jung: Letters, Volume II, p. 595.

When you are in the emotional state of compassion, you are coming from an understanding that everyone is evolving to the best of his or her capabilities at any given moment… by holding yourself and others in compassion, you raise your own vibration, which is a key to changing your destiny… this shifting of destiny takes place in every moment of your life and in every interaction with others. Every moment of your life is a choice point, whether you are consciously aware of it or not.
