You might want to get out pen and paper and record some of the incidents of the past few days. It could be that you've gained new insight or understanding into a particular problem. Some quiet time spent analyzing the situation could yield some interesting solutions.
A new book that has just been released which is titled Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the Nature of the Universe has caused quite a stir all across the Internet, due to the fact that its subject matter is completely about the idea of life continuing on after death and going on forever. The author of the book is scientist Dr. Robert Lanza and he has been called the third most significant science researcher alive today by the New York Times.
Lanza is considered to be one of the top professionals in the world in regard to regenerative medication and works as a scientist on cell technology. Before this, Dr. Lanza was known for widespread research in which he studied stem cells. He is also known for performing numerous cloning experiments on endangered animals.
However, he decided to get involved with quantum mechanics and astrophysics. Such a combination has given rise to the theory of biocentrism. That is the idea that states both consciousness and life itself are essential to the universe. It is consciousness which has created the physical universe and not the opposite way around as has been believed, according to Lanza.
He states that the entire assembly of the universe, and the constants, forces and even laws of the universe seem to be set up for life, suggesting that some sort of intelligence occurred before any matter was created. He also states that time and space are not things or items, but are instead just tools to help individuals understand the world around them. Lanza explained that people hold time and space close similar to how turtles carry their shells. But when people throw off their shells (time and space disappear) people still live.
Lanza is also a believer of multiple universes. He thinks that even though a person might pass away in one universe, but in another, it can still be alive and well and continues to exist. This idea means that someone who has died would go not to heaven or hell but end up in a world that was similar to the one that he or she once before had lived in but is now again alive. This continues onward indefinitely.
This very controversial theory that is held by Dr. Lanza actually has many supporters and not just plain mortals who are terrified of death, but also some other very well-known scientists as well. These are both physicists and also astrophysicists who happen to say that the presence of parallel worlds and the prospect of multiple universes is a possible concept. The idea of the multiverse or multi-universe is actually a real scientific concept, which many researchers defend. They state that there are no physical laws in existence that disallow any presence of there being the possibility of parallel worlds.
Dr. Hugh Everett, who worked at Princeton University, stated that at any time the universe can divide into any number of endless parallel instances. The very next moment, these brand-new universes split into yet another branch.. In some of these worlds a person might be watching television, in others he or she could be reading a book or even in others that person may not even exist.
What causes the triggers for such universes are peoples own actions. When certain choices are made, in an instant one universe divides into two that have two various outcomes. It is believed that space has many different orbs that allow the rise to similar orbs, and these make even more orbs, and so it goes on and on to infinity. Throughout the universe, they are apart, never knowing of each other but they all signify parts of the very same universe from which they came.
There is data that shows the universe is not alone. Using information from deep space telescopes, scientists have produced an extremely accurate map of microwave backgrounds. These are considered cosmic relics that have stayed around since the beginning of the birth of the universe. They have also discovered the universe contains much dark matter that is represented by gaps and black holes.
With this, many scientists now think there are many places that the soul could go to after death, when studying the idea of neo-biocentrism. Yet this is if one believes the soul actually exists. The scientist Dr. Stuart Hameroff, who is a near-death expert, offers a different description of consciousness that can perhaps appeal to rational scientific minds and also personal clairvoyance.
Hameroff believes that consciousness resides inside microtubules of the brain. These are the main areas of quantum processing. When death occurs, this information is released out of a person’s body, therefore meaning a consciousness is let go as well. Consciousness is believed by these scientists to be an important property of the universe that was present back at the beginning of the universe when the Big Bang occurred.
If such were to be true, then all souls were made from the very fabric of the universe and have existed since the starting of time itself. Human brains would be considered only receivers and amplifiers for the consciousness that is floating around in space and time.
Such accounts of quantum consciousness might start to explain such occurrences such as out of body experiences, near-death experiences, astral projection and possibly reincarnation without the need to bend to any religious philosophy. The energy of consciousness could possibly be recycled over and over into a new body at some time. While it waited, it could stay out of any physical body on some other kind of reality, and even in some kind of other sort of universe.
All these ideas have come to pass due to the new book Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the Nature of the Universe which has caused quite a stir all across the Internet, due to the fact that its subject matter is completely about the idea of life continuing on after death and going on forever. The author of the book, scientist Dr. Robert Lanza, has been called the third most significant science researcher alive today by the New York Times.

Since the beginning of the world women have been irresistibly drawn to jewels. When we wear lovely gems we feel that we look our prettiest and most prosperous. It's not just an idea, either - for jewels, as everyone knows, really do bring luck.
Not every jewel to every woman, of course. Good fortune is always more individual and specialized than that. There are twelve signs of the Zodiac, corresponding wit the twelve months of the year and each sign has a special gem associated with it, bestowing on those who wear it a particular kind of luck.
Generally speaking, too, the color of the Zodiac stone which is extra becoming to the type of woman born under the corresponding sign. So that, from all points of view, there is no better way of choosing your particular gem than by the month in which you were born.
The stone and the special luck which it brings are given in the traditional rhythms set below. Remember, however, that the Zodiac months don't correspond exactly with the calendar months, but run from about the 21st to the 24th. Beside each month, in brackets, you will find the period it covers. There is often an overlap of a few days at the time the signs change and if your birthday, comes between the 20th and 24th of any month you may find that either the stone for the period just ending or that for the period just beginning may be correct within a day or two.
In this case adopt as yours the jewel of the two for which you have a decided preference and feel happiest wearing.
Note also regarding lucky gems that the good fortune they bring is greatest if they are worn touching the skin. For this reason your Birth Stone should be mounted as a pendant, bracelet or ring rather than as a brooch or clip. If your engagement ring contains your Birth Month Stone, your marriage should be specially blessed by Fate.
EACH MONTH'S BIRTH STONE
January (December 21st to January 20th)
By her who in this month was born
No gem save Garnets should be worn.
They will ensure her constancy,
True friendships and fidelity.

Who on this world of ours their eyes
In March first open, shall be wise,
In days of peril strong and brave,
And wear a Bloodstone to their grave.
- bloodstone a semi-precious stone which is dark green with red spots like bloodstains. Its name may be due to this or that fact that in olden times it was believed to stop bleeding.

It also brings courage to its wearer.
April (March 21st to April 20th)
She who from April dates her years,
Diamonds shall wear, lest bitter tears
For vain repentance flow.
This stone emblem of innocence is known.
diamond - a precious stone which is pure from carbon, the color of water and very sparkling. It is luckiest when worn on the left side. it symbolizes strength, virtue, bravery and insight and will bring these fine attributes to those who wear it. The Hebrew's long ago believed that it lost its sparkle if touched or worn by a traitor's hand.
May (April 21st to May 20th)
Who first beholds the light of day
In spring's sweet, flowery month of May,
And wears an Emerald all her life,
Shall be a loved and loving wife.
emerald - a precious stone of beryl type, but distinguished from the beryl by its beautiful green color.

And owes to June her hour of birth,
With ring of Agate on her hand

Those who in warm July are born.
Then will they be exempt and free
From love's doubt and anxiety.

We think of it as deep glowing red, but it may range between pink and almost violet. It brings good fortune in friendship and banishes grief.

Wear a Sardonyx or for thee
No conjugal felicity (happiness).

And life's vicissitudes ( successive change of fortune) must know;
But lay an Opal on her breast
And hope will lull those to rest.
opal - a very lovely precious stone of cloudy white, but flashing with rainbow hues as it catches the light. The gem is considered unlucky as an engagement ring unless worn by October-born, as it is said that with a wearer of any month the marriage will never take place. For those whose birth stone it is it gives second sight, hope and faith. As with the emerald, legend says that it loses it brilliance if worn by an unfaithful lover.
November (October 21st to November 20th)
Who first comes to this world below
In dear November's fog and snow,
Should prize the Topaz' amber hue,
Emblem of friends and lovers true.
topaz- a more or less transparent precious stone which is usually clear yellow, but sometimes yellowish white, blue or even pink, though the last color is generally artificially produced. The ancients believed that it warded off chest and rheumatic troubles and asthma, and brought fidelity in friendship and love.

The month of snow and ice and mirth,
Place on your hand Turquoise blue,
Success will bless whate'er you do.

Book Of Fortune Telling - originally published in 1951 by C. Arthur Pearson Limited as 'Complete Fortune Telling'
When things start to fall apart remember that death brings rebirth - a rebirth which is usually wiser, stronger, and more prosperous than the original birth. If you feel things become too stressed under incredible pressure, you might want to consider just letting them fall.
Tuning into your dreams and wishes means you won't become distanced from your heart.

With the coming Year of the Horse (the Wooden Horse, to be precise), the Lunar Festival promises an extreme year of adventure and romance, and also chaos and market fluctuations.
Chinese New Year is the kind of holiday we can all get behind: a 15-day celebration centering around food and family, with traditions designed to attract luck and fortune.

The Start of Spring in US Eastern Standard Time is at 17:04 P.M. on February 3, 2014, and in the US Pacific Standard Time is at 14:04 P.M. on February 3, 2014. Therefore, the 2014 Horse year starts on February 3, 2014 in US time zones.
Chinese Astrology uses one's birthday and birth time to predict their fortune.

Tools of the Trade What do you keep on hand?
The five elements: water, fire, air, earth, and the void are connected to sustain life. To create healthy energy the basic elemental tools need to be explored.
East, Water, Cup, compassion, love, healing
South, Fire, Wand, personal will,
West, Air, Sword, thoughts, communication
North, Earth, Pentacle, material, physical
Aether, Ether, Akasha, the void
The Void - represents those things beyond our everyday experience, particularly those things composed of pure energy.
( In Aristotle's system aether had no qualities (was neither hot, cold, wet, or dry), was incapable of change (with the exception of change of place), and by its nature moved in circles, and had no contrary, or unnatural, motion.)
Aristotle added aether as the quintessence, reasoning that whereas fire, earth, air, and water were earthly and corruptible, since no changes had been perceived in the heavenly regions, the stars cannot be made out of any of the four elements but must be made of a different, unchangeable, heavenly substance.
The five elements are associated with the five senses, and act as the gross medium for the experience of sensations. The basest element, earth, created using all the other elements, can be perceived by all five senses - hearing, touch, sight, taste, and smell. The next higher element, water, has no odor but can be heard, felt, seen and tasted. Next comes fire, which can be heard, felt and seen. Air can be heard and felt. "Akasha" (ether) is the medium of sound but
is inaccessible to all other senses.
*** Spirit the transcendent fifth element which unities and governs the other four
elements. The vital principle or animating force within living beings. Also, a sentient, incorporeal entity.

Ouija boards, séances, and psychic mediums may seem like kitschy throwbacks to yesteryear, but in only the past few years there has been a dramatic resurgence of the desire to communicate with the dead. Paranormal Investigator Walter Meyer zu Erpen has made it his life’s work to investigate the question: is there life after death? And if so, is it possible to communicate with that surviving part of human consciousness? Walter invites us to journey through the enigmatic worlds of afterlife communications including medium-ship sessions and Electronic Voice Phenomenon (E.V.P.) recording. From climbing into ancient Hawaiian spirit caves to visiting the Nova Scotian grave site of the world’s greatest shipwreck disaster on the 100th anniversary of its sinking – Meyer zu Erpen ponders larger implications of communication beyond the veil such as: if there is evidence of personal survival beyond so-called death, would you live your life differently?
What happens to us after death is perhaps the greatest mystery of life. One belief is that we reincarnate – that there is life, after life. Despite this widespread belief, renowned spiritual author and scholar Tom Harpur remained skeptical of reincarnation – until now. What has lead Harpur to consider reincarnation as a real possibility? It may be surprising, but the best evidence does not come from the world of religion or spiritual studies, but from the world of science. From cases of children who can recall living past lives to the science of biometrics to the realm of quantum physics and global consciousness, we examine the evidence for reincarnation.
Could a young boy with vivid, accurate memories of WWII be the reincarnation of a pilot who was shot down during the war? Is it possible that Anne Frank is alive today, reincarnated as a senior member of the Swedish National Police? Claus von Stauffenberg was executed for his attempt to assassinate Hitler, but did his life end there?
Some believe Fortune Telling is an art – dating back thousands of years – practiced by millions around the world. But others say it is all fraud – a slick business run by fraudsters and criminals – in search of the big bucks. Our investigator, actress Cindy Sampson, from the hit series Supernatural, begins a quest to uncover the truth – locating North America’s top Fortune Tellers – and putting them to the test.
From Tarot cards to palm reading, Cindy challenges psychics and savants to peer into her future. And what they reveal is shocking – from relationship trauma to potentially life-altering illnesses. But the skeptics offer a different angle – providing convincing evidence that these ancient practices hold no truth at all. Finally, Cindy’s encounter with a psychic not far from her hometown is shocking. Using the practices of Nostradamus himself, this psychic opens Cindy’s mind to world she never knew possible – a final, and convincing argument that Fortune Telling may indeed be real
