Intuition Could Be Your Superpower
So, what exactly is intuition? A good way to describe it is a gut feeling, a sense or a feeling about something. It's arriving to some sort of truth about something, an event or experience without using any type of analytic reasoning. Intuition has been measured, which is why the US Office of Naval Research (ONR) admitted to developing methods to develop and measure this phenomenon for their soldiers.
Dr. Judith Orloff, MD, assistant clinical professor of Psychiatry at UCLA told Forbes that, "In my my private practice, I work with women executives who come to me to develop their intuition. They see it as a 'superpower' to use in all decisions at work as well as a guide for how to be good leaders and organizers." According to Dr. Orloff, scientists believe intuition operates through the entire right side of our brain, the brain's hippocampus and through our gut (the digestive system has neurons as well).
Alexandra Mysoor, the writer of the Forbes article goes on to explain: "When the neurotransmitters (chemical messengers) in your gut fire up, you may be feeling either "butterflies" or queasy sensations. Pay attention to those. It's no accident we use the term intuition and gut feeling interchangeably because science has now shown us that our gut has a brain of its own, a second brain so to speak. In fact, our gut has an entire network of neurotransmitters called the enteric nervous system."
The Institute of HeartMath's Dean Radin and team conducted an interesting experiment involving twenty-six adults experienced in using HeartMath techniques and who could sustain a heart-coherent state completed two rounds of study protocols approximately two weeks apart. Half of the participants completed the protocols after they intentionally achieved a heart-coherent state for 10 minutes. The other half completed the same procedures without first achieving heart coherence. Then they reversed the process for the second round of monitoring, with the first group not becoming heart-coherent before completing the protocols and the second group becoming heart-coherent before. The point was to test whether heart coherence affected the results of the experiment. Participants were told the study's purpose was to test stress reactions and were unaware of its actual purpose. Each participant sat at a computer and was instructed to click a mouse when ready to begin.
The screen stayed blank for six seconds. The participant's physiological data was recorded by a special software program, and then, one by one, a series of 45 pictures was displayed on the screen. Each picture, displayed for 3 seconds, evoked either a strong emotional reaction or a calm state. After each picture, the screen went blank for 10 seconds. Participants repeated this process for all 45 pictures, 30 of which were known to evoke a calm response and 15 a strong emotional response.
The results of the experiment were fascinating to say the least. The participants' brains and hearts responded to information about the emotional quality of the pictures before the computer flashed them (random selection). This means that the heart and brain were both responding to future events. The results indicated that the responses happened, on average, 4.8 seconds before the computer selected the pictures. Even more profound, perhaps, was data showing the heart received information before the brain. "It is first registered from the heart," Rollin McCraty Ph.D. explained, "then up to the brain (emotional and pre-frontal cortex), where we can logically relate what we are intuiting, then finally down to the gut (or where something stirs)."
This study showed that the heart, alongside the brain, has some sort of intuitive intelligence.

The Power of the Simple Nap
We've often heard and read stories of the habits of a Winston Churchill or John F. Kennedy catching their afternoon nap as a lifetime habit. New research from the University of California, Berkeley, shows that an hour's nap can dramatically boost and restore your brain power. Indeed, the findings suggest that a "biphasic" sleep schedule (sleep at night, nap in the afternoon) not only refreshes the mind, but can make you smarter. Here are the benefits of napping:
Napping Can Boost Your Immune System - A 2015 study in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism took 11 healthy young men and restricted them to a night of only two hours of sleep. Blood and urine tests measured higher cytokines and levels of norepinephrine in both groups after sleep deprivation. The following day, one group was given two half-hour naps, while the control group did not have any naps. Blood and urine samples of those who napped showed that their cytokines and norepinephrine levels had returned to normal, as though they had never lost a night of sleep.
A Nap Can Improve Night Alertness - For people who work at night, or through the night, several studies have shown that naps from between 30 minutes and four hours long that are taken in advance of the shift--what's known as a "prophylactic nap"--improve performance and alertness.
Naps Plus Caffeine are a One-Two Punch Against Sleepiness - Surgeons must often perform continuous surgery for hours longer than the average person would ever have to persist at a task. A 1994 study in the journal Ergonomics found that naps were indeed effective at keeping surgeons who had to remain awake for 24 hours alert, but only when caffeine was administered, too.
To Improve Daytime Alertness, Take Frequent Short Naps - Daytime napping also appears to improve mental alertness and performance, according to a number of laboratory studies. However, researchers found that shorter naps were more effective than longer ones. The most effective time of them all was 20 minutes, which produced the best outcomes in all sleep measures including "subjective sleepiness, fatigue, vigor, and cognitive performance."
Naps Help You Learn New Skills and Improve Your Memory - If you want to get better at learning a new skill, you might want to take more frequent naps. A 2006 study in Biological Physiology broke participants into two groups: those who napped frequently and those who napped sporadically. People who reported napping frequently—did better on the reading and retention task. One of the many functions of regular nighttime sleep is to consolidate memory. A 2010 study in Neurobiology of Learning and Memory showed that participants who napped showed notably better retention of associative memory.
Napping Can Help You Deal with Physical Pain and Reduce the Risk of Heart Disease - One study on the general population showed a reduction in pain sensitivity after a midday doze. Other studies have shown napping reduces the risk of heart disease.
Tips to Make Napping Easier - When you lie down for those 20 minutes of shuteye, even if you're really tired, it can be hard to actually fall asleep. To help, try to simulate nighttime conditions. Reduce light with a mask, blackout curtains, or—if for some strange reason your office actually invested in one—a workplace nap "pod". If you still can't convince your body it's time to zonk out, try listening to some music before you go to sleep. One study, published in a 2017 edition of the Journal Sleep Medicine, showed that listening to music before napping helped patients sleep for more of the allotted napping time.

The Power of the Placement of Objects
Vastu shastra deals with subtle energy and how the placement of objects affects this energy. To begin with, consider the earth as a big piece of magnet with two poles—the north and the south. With that, everything in it becomes smaller pieces of magnets. Our bodies too are bio-magnets with their own magnetic poles and magnetic fields (which we also know as aura and whose presence studies have proven time and again.) In our bodies, the part above the naval functions as the north pole and the part below as the south pole. Basic laws of physics dictate that like poles of two magnets repel each other but opposite poles attract. This is the principle that guides the rules of vastu shastra.
For instance, we are often told not to lie down with our head in the north, the reason being that the north pole of our body and the north pole of the earth repel each other. Your body spends a lot of energy in this, resulting in disturbed sleep. This apparently is believed to lead to fluctuations in blood pressure and can even cause heart problems. Our blood also contains a lot of iron and when you sleep with your head in the north direction, the magnetic pull attracts the iron which then accumulates in the brain. This is one reason a person who sleeps with his head on the north often wakes up with headaches.
Astrologer and expert in vastu shastra, Dr. Basudev Krishna Shastri, says vastu shastra is about how you can live in harmony with nature by balancing the effects of the five key elements (pancha tattva) earth, water, fire, air, and sky--that make up the universe and everything in it, including us. Vastu shastra translates to "the science of architecture" and it is basically physics. "It feels like superstition because you don't see this energy," he says, "but its effects are very real. The right kind of energy can fuel and recharge you, while the wrong kind can do a lot of harm."
"Everything is made up of five key elements and different corners of your house represent different elements. The north-east corner represents water, the south-east stands for fire, the south-west for earth, and the north-west for air. The space at the center where these four corners intersect is space," explains Shastri. According to vastu shastra, compatibility of elements is important to balance out the energies which is why the kitchen (that represents fire or heat), for example, should be built in the southeast section of a house.
The reason why vastu shastra is sidelined or is considered quack science is because people don't understand it, adds Dr Shastri. The goal of the vastu principles is to create a well-lit, properly ventilated, and aesthetically designed living space that can bring a sense of peace and calm. There are thus logical reasons for everything that vastu shastra mandates. For example, big trees at the main entrance of a house are considered bad vastu as they block sunlight and the roots can damage the foundation of the walls.
As energy is primarily thought to originate from the north-east corner, many rules in vastu shastra are derived keeping this basic idea in mind.

Health & Healing Hack of the Week
My Liquid Fish
This is a handy and effective little energy mudra that you can do anywhere to address acute conditions, or to create a routine for chronic pains and conditions. Discovered, or received by healer, Jimmy Mack, My Liquid Fish is a finger motion. Begin with the index finger of either hand, hold it on or near the area in need, and then draw a "fish" as you move your finger away from the area to be healed. Energy can be drawn into an area by simply reversing the motion of the finger by starting away from the focus area and drawing the "fish", ending the motion on or near the area of interest. I use this daily, and have noticed it causes a shift where it is applied, and changes the pain or discomfort, in many cases simply taking it away (also see "Take It Away"). -- From 25 No Cost Health & Healing Hacks by Boyd Martin)
