The mind’s eye, scientifically known as the pineal gland, is considered to be the gateway to higher levels of consciousness.

It is also believed that the pineal gland is responsible for the release of Dimethyltryptamine (DMT). Also known as the “third eye,” the pineal gland is believed to be the “principle seat of the soul,” according to Descartes. As you can see, this gland has many functions, both physically and metaphysically so keeping it functioning at its full potential should be a priority of everyone seeking a healthy mind.

Foods carrying health claims have only slightly better nutrition profiles than products without, and they often carry a greater percentage of food additives, preservatives and artificial sweeteners.

Different sizes, different colors, different individual weight and such. Continue reading Soren Dreier: Foods and the ‘Etheric Field’

Even though most of you are probably way ahead of me on this subject, I think the things we consume are more important than we realize. I wrote about GMOs and the harm they can cause in the past, and I did it because I didn’t know anything about them and didn’t want to join the crowd of naysayers before I formed my own opinion.
In writing about them, I realized just how bad they are for our bodies and the environment.
I don’t encourage fear-mongering or worrying about things that our family beyond is helping us neutralize, but I discovered just how malevolent GMOs are when I researched them and realized that they have the potential to cause ‘super diseases’ and a host of other awful and destructive things.
In general, I think that humanity’s replacement of healthy, natural food with artificial, unnatural food that’s gene-spliced in a lab is very unfortunate and could cause a host of negative effects that most people don’t realize or aren’t comfortable thinking about.
