Vegetarianism – Veganism

VEGETARIANA“An invitation to look over the fence”

Vegetarianism is a more natural life style. People eat food only of plant origin, and thus health benefits arise on all levels. Vegan people not only do not consume food of animal origin, but also do not use any by-product of animal origin like cloths, honey, fish products. They do not tolerate animal abuse, neither any kind of exploitation and they respect the environment. There are many sub groups in both identities, but for the purpose of this short article, we will stick to the two main groups.
In this article we will briefly highlight the health and wellbeing consequences of either choice. For more info, please consult your Naturopath or Therapist and specialised shops and literature.

Gofio – an old but healthy food component.

MOLINO ANTIGUOThe roasted grain – Gofio – has its origin thousands of years ago. By roasting the grain before milling, one can destroy mould and mould toxins, allowing poorly stored grain still to be used. The flavour will improve because more complex sugars are being formed through the roasting process. Furthermore the higher roasting temperatures will partly break down starch and protein compounds and thus make it more digestible.

The Acid – Base balance in our body.

ALIMENTOS PARA BAJAR ESTRESOur blood has a certain acid/base balanced level and this level in the plasma is expressed as a pH value. The normal range is 7,35 – 7,45. This difference in value might look small and thus unimportant, but our body is very sensitive to deviations of pH. Outside this narrow range of pH, proteins will denature, digested and enzymes will lose their function. Extreme deviations will even cause death.

Relaxing Advice

SPIRITUALITYAre you nervous and can't you get to sleep?
Possible causes for insomnia are stress, daily preoccupations, anxiety, depression, going to bed at different times or very late. Exposure to electromagnetic fields, nearby radiations from mobiles, computers, TV and being frequently connected to them. Avoid large meals in the evening and limit stimulating drinks like coffee, tea, sweets, soft drinks, alcohol, tobacco, etc. Sleeping on fluffy pillows.There are many natural remedies to find a solution:{slide=Read more...}womn-cant-sleep- deep-respiration techniques, meditation, yoga, listening to relaxing music, receiving a massage, taking a bath with relaxing oils and scents, a walk through nature, drinking an infusion of passion flower, valerian, hop, poppy, orange blossom, balm, linden flower, rose, etc and if you don't like infusions then you can get tablets or extracts of the same.

- you also can take Melatonin to have a restful night as it is a powerful regulator of the awake-sleep rhythm and it protects against stress and depression. It is a hormone that is produced by the Epiphysis and the Pineal gland. It is liberated by the body when dark or during the night. The level reduces by getting older.

- SHTP (Tryptophane) is a natural amino acid and an intermediate in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters Serotonin and Melatonin from Tryptophane. It also regulates the nervous system and is very useful against anxiety,

- Vitamin B Complex as a supplement will strengthen our nervous system,

- when applying aromatherapy you can use essential oils of lavender, orange, mandarin...

- Highly advisable are the Reiki and Bach flower techniques to get your body back into balance. The "Rescue Remedy" can assist you in the search for the adequate flowers.

Aloe Vera Fresca di Fuerteventura.

aloe-veraEverybody talks about Aloe Vera and you literally can buy it on each corner of the street, including in "bazaars" where they are on display between slippers and other "stuff". But there are major differences in Aloe Vera. These depend on the type of Aloe Vera plant, its maintenance during growth and - last but not least - the processing into the final product.
Fuerteventura offers the best conditions for the cultivation of Aloe Vera with supreme quality of the end product. But it takes time. It requires at least 4 years of irrigation before the plants starts to produce its valuable components in sufficient amounts.

The Human Body

Human_Body_-_IntroPicIn our previous article “The Real Material World” we invited the reader to get rid of “the conditioned consciousness” in order to be able to explore new ways to experience life. In this article, we will try to provide the reader some refreshing insights about our own body, its functioning and how to get in harmony with it.

Our body is believed to consist of molecules – matter – that swirls around due to an unknown cause! And that the outcome of this is our consciousness! Meaningful thoughts, feelings, desires, emotions, passion, love, hate, sin, enlightenment, etc all are a result of bumping molecules. Everything seems to be a staggering waltz of molecules!

Our body consists of 70 to 80 billion cells and all of them are constantly busy in their specific domain. This results in 100.000 bio-chemical reactions in our body per second! Did you know that our body produces 20 million blood cells per minute? And that it produces 50 million cells per second? Our brain processes 40 billion info-bits per second and our consciousness is registering only 2000 info-bits per second. We do have about 60.000 thoughts per day and of only 2.000 of them we are conscious about.

Let it go...

pareja-en-la-playaLet it go...

... and let it flow. Easier said than done. Anybody who made the step to Fuerteventura – or another foreign location – knows that letting go became a permanent companion, in the past and maybe today still is. You leave behind the usual life, family, friends, job, home and the surroundings that you got accustomed to for a journey into another world. Attitude is everything, as the challenges are multiple and complex, most of the time. Issues which you never anticipated emerge, situations that you never experienced will call upon you. And so it can happen that, when sticking to the usual procedures and structures, your journey might become rather bumpy. However whatever the outcome, you will have learned and built up experiences that never can be taken out of a book. Experience – whether positive or negative – remains an experience that will bring you further on to your path of life.

Relationships: The dynamics of Modern Relationships - a sketch.

relationships-10Modern relationships differ from “older” ones in the way that nowadays people can be more open about their preferences and expectations. Females enjoy more freedom in most western societies and this has an important influence on their self-consciousness and ego. The “romantic ideal” of life-time relationships is – slowly but steadily – transformed into a more pragmatic attitude towards partnerships. Discovery of one self within a fixed relationship and redefinition of expectations and loyalty becomes an important topic to youngsters and older partners. The search about the (new) basics of life is also guided by components of the far-eastern culture. Respect, openness and friendship seem to be the driving forces in modern relationships.

Freedom of Mind - The Fuerteventura Experiment.

brillo_corporalThe mind or ego, in its conscious or unconscious state, is a genial development of nature. It has helped all living species to take care of themselves and to survive most daily threats, over millions of years. Evolution as we know it is unthinkable without the assistance of mind, regardless what state.
However, modern mankind in general is the first creature on this planet that has the possibility of not having to stand up to life-threatening situations everyday. Even more, modern mankind is the first creature on this planet that has the luxury to relax over a longer period of time without suffering negative consequences.

Conflicting Partners

MALA relationship is not always a rose garden, nor should it be a constant warzone. However, living together creates conflicts. There are many reasons for this such as genetics, hormones and external elements. People do evaluate and interpret events in a different way and they do act accordingly different. Hidden behind any conflict are wishes, expectations and habits that were known by you before or that were hidden in your subconscious mind. You got to know them for sure only when exposed during a conflict.

What if?

AMANECER1Some time ago during this year, I was overlooking the most significant events of the last couple of months and wondered what would be the meaning of them. Would they just be randomly produced as components of a mathematical probability, or would they be "organised" as part of a "higher plan" in order to invite us to re-think about and re-act on our "proven" concepts?  With "higher plan" I do not necessarily mean the standard idea of a Higher Force, but merely the creation of situations by our actual behaviour that make those events almost unavoidable.

A lesson in modesty - Made in Japan.

tsunamiAs already mentioned in short in the Welcome section of this magazine, the recent dramatic events for sure have put many people in shock and have set them in a mental conditioning of self-examination: why did it hit us so badly, where were we wrong?

We never will be able to predict major earthquakes sufficiently well or even control or avoid most of their effects, but we can try to limit those devastating consequences that we have witnessed recently.

Love & Relationships.

5822630Is Love enough in a relationship? Well, compare with this:

Imagine your car being in a corrosive marine area.

If you regularly do maintenance on your car and with love, you will encounter little rust,

If you love your car but cut on the maintenance, you will get more rust,

If you don’t love your car and neglect it, you will get a lot of rust,

A relationship is not different.

Love alone is not enough to keep things running, regular maintenance is important too.

Eliminating rust with love alone won’t work, a hands-on approach is needed sometimes.

Relationships – Suggestions for a happy-end.

corazon2When relationships are difficult or when they are hitting a bottom, many people ask themselves what is wrong with them… or with their partner. With the exception of a minority who really have to cope with deep problems concerning emotional and communicative issues, nothing is wrong with us. However, be aware that every one of us is a product of three major elements: genetic disposition, education by environment and adjustment through auto-feedback.

Anxiety: a hurdle to quality-life

galeria_file_foto_59Anxiety is a result of a biological and a psychological condition but also of education and social environment. When we grow up from our childhood to adults, we discover fear due to experiences that harmed us – physically, mentally, emotionally, or a combination of these. A proper education teaches us to cope with these fears and to put them in a balanced perspective. An improper or even abusive education will result in the amplification of fears to such an extend that they could run your entire life. Fear will then cause internal and constant pain.

The Art of opening up your Soul | Spirit19

Many of us – and I have to admit I am no exception to it – tend to use only our brain in our daily communication with others. For the majority of topics that we have to deal with, there is nothing wrong about that. But when it comes to our communication with friends or beloved ones, we could allow the heart – and thus our soul – to speak more freely. This statement may sound trivial and “déjá vu”, but it isn’t.

Sexual Communication | Spirit 19

1One could think that sex is not a taboo anymore. Till the bedroom light darkens.

When you ask ten people about their most embarrassing moments in life, eight will answer you with a story about nudity or sex. No matter that we can talk freely about sex; we draw the line where people can watch, hear or smell us during the “act”. Even with our fixed partner, we tend to pretend.

The objective of performance is dominating our perception and behaviour. And it is not only with the masculine part of our population that targets like “1-hour penetration” are the only valid criteria of success. Also the female part can be conditioned by the “number of orgasms” they can achieve. Another fake target is the “romantic copulation”.

I don’t know how to continue my life, I have no fun anymore in my work and I started taking pills to cope with this world. At occasions I take to the bottle. What’s wrong with me?”

Scio-Bioresonance

54_SCIOARRIBASCIO means Scientific Conscious Interface Operations system. SCIO is a measuring system that connects to the human body and to the unconsciousness via an interface. Most of the body and mind processes run in the sub-consciousness domain. The human body consists of about 200 trillion body cells that have to be in balance. This requires a vast amount of information as well as steering mechanisms. In no way we could manage this amount of tasks in the conscious domain. These kinds of compensation mechanisms, damages, levels of exhaustion, faults etc that cannot be seen yet by clinical examination or that haven’t showed up yet as symptoms, can be made obvious with SCIO, under the condition that the sub-conscious does react.

The Secret of Good Partnerships

22_MAIN_ARTCLEOur civilisation today has evolved in many ways, compared to ancient times, but nevertheless we still are searching for the holy grail of a good partnership. Since the time of pharaohs, Greek philosophers and roman emperors, mankind is puzzled by the secret of love.

If we may generalise on a worldwide scale then one important element in human behaviour though has shown an immense evolution: the emancipation of women and the resulting respect for them. This evolution lifted “the weak sex” onto an equal level as that of the man, and provided the indispensable condition for a successful quest for a balanced partnership. But it has some consequences, just like personal freedom invites you to generate your own judgements.

Conditioning and Health

Mom_loving_babyIn the following article, we try to demonstrate how and why our mind and its conditioning are affecting our general health and wellbeing. And how we can escape from its eventual negative influences.

A couple of years ago a scientist called Herbet Specter from the National Institute of Health carried out the following experiment: one population of mice was administered a chemical Poly-A-c, that strengthens their immune system. At the same time he exposed the mice to the smell of Camphor, another chemical. After a while, the mice were stimulating their immune system when they smelled Camphor. Another population of mice was administered the chemical Cyclophosphamide, that destroys the immune system. At the same time he exposed these mice to the smell of Camphor. After a while these mice started to destroy their immune system when they smelled camphor. He now had 2 groups of mice: one group smells camphor and stimulates their immune system and the other group smell camphor and destroys their immune system.

Woman & Man.

womanmantalmud

The Hebrew Talmud ends with:

"Watch out to avoid making a woman cry,
because God counts her tears.
The woman was created from the rib of a man,
not from his feet to be his door mat,
not from his head to be his superior,
but from his side to be his equal.
Out of a rib under his arm in order to be protected,
and from the side of his heart to be beloved by him."

blessingway_candleso the story starts.
Once upon a time, about three days before Christmas, on a dark, cold night, somewhere in the North:
A group of men passing the plaza of the little village, stopping at the local church, taking out of their pockets cans of spray paint and swiftly writing on the wall: “Foreigners go home!!!”, then a noise of breaking glass. The gang disappeared quickly and a ghostly silence filled the air. The curtains were closed quickly and nobody had seen anything.
