Numerology

Numerology is the study of relationships between numbers and events. There are many traditional forms of numerology dating back to the earliest mathematicians, however, numerology is no longer considered to be part of mathematics.

Numerology is often used alongside astrology and the like to predict life paths and occurrences. Similar to astrology, there are specific charts that one can have done and interpreted. Each number has a meaning and a significance depending on where it appears in the chart.

The meanings of each number are not specific and the interpretations of the numbers vary from culture to culture. There are several common interpretations.shutterstock_77979073

1 is understood to mean individual. It often refers to “self” and represents leadership.

2 represents balance and being receptive. It also refers to union and/or partnership.

3 represents communication and/or interaction.

4 represents creation.

5 represents action. It can also represent restlessness (within the person), as well as life experience.

6 represents family and the home, as well as the responsibility that comes along with these things.

7 represents spirit. There is also a close tie to consciousness and thought.

8 is the number of power. It also recognizes sacrifice, which is something that often comes with power.

9 represents change.

There are numerologists that practice the analysis of double-digit numbers as well. This form of numerology focuses on the evidence of significant double-digit numbers in many faith-based practices.

Like astrology, the interpretations of numerological charts leave much up to the person receiving the chart. The amount of truth that you will find in your chart depends on how you interpret what has been said. It is important to take these charts as you would an astrological reading. There may be things that are more true to your experience than others. How you interpret these readings is your choice. An important thing to keep in mind is not only to look forward, but look at all of the wonderful gifts and blessings that are a part of day-to-day living.

Alternative Solutions and Mental Health: Part 2

GutBrainConnection

The Brain-Gut connection is one that many people take for granted. Stress, anxiety, anger, happiness, and all other emotions effect the gastrointestinal tract, as it is sensitive to emotion. This is where feelings in your stomach like “butterflies” come from. It is a direct reaction from your emotional state, triggered by your brain and received in your stomach.

  • The brain and stomach have direct effects on each other. This is presented in many different ways.
  • Troubled intestine sends messages to the brain which can lead to emotional turmoil (stress, anxiety, depression).
  • Troubled brain sends messages to the intestines and stomach causing intestinal trouble (nausea, stomach aches and pains).
  • Brain notifies the stomach that you are hungry, stomach provides the digestive juices needed to digest the food before it arrives.

With the above things considered, it is often times hard to determine whether the intestinal problems are a product of emotional turmoil or the cause of emotional terminal. This is especially evident when you experience gastrointestinal upset without obvious physical cause.

Stress has a large part to play with GI upset. It might explain the nausea before giving an important presentation, or the stomach pains during times of high stress. This does not mean that all GI illnesses are just “all in your head”. They are however linked. Psychological symptoms influence the physiological symptoms and the physiology of the gut itself.

environmental-toxins

Environmental toxins also play a large role in the overall wellbeing as well as the wellness of the brain and mood. Many toxins in our environment are able to pass the blood-brain barrier, making the brain more susceptible to their toxic effects. Chemical toxins, drugs, radiation from cell phones and cell phone towers all cross the blood-brain barrier and cause toxic stress. Toxic stress leads to mood changes and disorders caused by the imbalances in the brain because of the excess or lack of the proper hormones.

So what does all of this information mean? The important thing to remember is that there is a strong mind-body connection. With this connection comes many ways in which the mind and body effect each other. It is also important to remember that because of this mind-body connection, it is important to look after the entire self, not just the physical or psychological separately.

International Women’s Day

WomenHoldingWorldWe are mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, homemakers, lawyers, and doctors. We wait tables, change diapers, kiss boo-boos, and run households. In a day and age where gender roles are not nearly as clear cut as they used to be, it can be hard for the younger generations to remember how hard women throughout history had to fight to get the same basic rights as men. And in many parts of the world, women are still discriminated against.

International Women’s Day (IWD) serves as not only a reminder, but a celebration of the contributions of women throughout history. It is a day that connects women not only locally but internationally, through events held across the world in celebration. It is a day of activism, artistic expression, and most importantly, appreciation for women around the world.

The history of IWD starts in 1908 in New York. It was a time when women started to band together and protest, demanding better hours, fair pay, and voting rights. The early 1900’s saw the beginning of what most labeled as “radical ideologies”. Women fought and won the right to vote, although in many workplaces today there are still many barriers for women as far as pay and promotions are concerned. The first ever National Women’s Day was observed across the US on February 28th, 1909. The celebration of NWD continued on the 28th of every February until 1913, when it was changed to International Women’s Day. Women rallied in Russia on the eve of World War I and observed their first IWD. It was then changed to March 8th and has been observed in many European countries since that day.

IWD-History
From 1908 until now, women have made great strides in obtaining equality and fair treatment in countries all across the world. IWD has become a holiday in many places around the world, mirroring the status of Mother’s Day. It is an important celebration and day of appreciation for all of the important women in our lives. It is also a day of inspiration and solidarity between women, showing that we are powerful not only as one but as a collective. We have made great strides since the early days of the feminist movements, and we continually strive for true equality for all.
