Dealing With Emotional Blocks: Get Creative or… Have Sex!
Frustration, bad moods, irritableness, short-temper, can all be symptoms of emotional blocks. Emotional blocks develop when your energy isn’t able to flow freely. Energy can change form when it gets blocked, and results in emotional disturbances. When you can channel your energy into creative expression it is able to flow freely through your being. In the process you release those emotional blocks and achieve inner peace. Of course another way to let off that steam is to have some great sex!

Intuition: What the Scientists Say
Where does intuition come from? Several researchers have linked intuition with specific “body cues”, suggesting that the body’s responses can be used as a means of recognising and using intuition. Our brain and nervous system are continuously receiving literally massive amounts of information that we are not consciously aware of. Beneath the surface of our awareness there is a whole other universe of activity. From time to time intuition allows us brief access to that great databank, and throws into our conscious mind some information that we have no idea where it came from.
Intuition – The Sixth Sense?
We are all aware of our five physical senses of sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste. But not all of us are aware of that which is known popularly as the sixth sense. In my own experience this “sixth sense” is in fact simply the mind. Part of my way of life as a monk involved training and enhancing the senses. I noticed that through years of discipline, hard work, and Divine Grace, the mind can be applied to each of the physical senses to act as a sort of extension which seems to enable them to function beyond the normal physical limits that we are commonly used to. The Hindu mystics often alluded to this extension as “the third eye”.

Understanding Your Life Purpose
People often think of life purpose as some specific contribution or function they should have, such as teaching others, being a parent, or raising awareness about environmental issues.
