Can a kiss from Mother Nature make us feel immortal? One day you will kiss someone you can't breathe without and find out that breath is of little consequence.
It’s hard to overstate how intense it feels to be kissed after so many years in a loveless relationship.......When you have a great kiss it is like an ACLS algorithm that uses paddle shocks. Sometimes they bring us back to life after our heart has stopped. There was a part of me I assumed was dead and suddenly there it was, alive and kicking. Going outside and being kissed by the AM light awoken me to what I was missing. With a kiss, she was oxygen and I was dying to breathe.
Marriage is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and a dollar for your soul. I know, because I turned down the first offer and held out for the dollar by connecting with nature once again

Up for learning more about the science of (sun)light?Are you awake yet?

The cure is in nature! 42% of SUNLIGHT is a RED light. RED LIGHT = LLLT or PBM.
There are so many truth bombs in this article, so many gold nuggets...Rick wanted to break it down for the lazy people who don't like to read real data:
Do you need to wear sunscreen? NOPE. Not if you spend enough time exposing your skin to the sun's rays in the early AM and late afternoon before sundown.
Why?
Because UV rays are low during that time, but IR (Infrared) light is strong during those times of the day DIURNALLY.
Why does that matter?
Read this paper in its entirety and be ready for your jaw to drop several times. IR light is beneficial to us in many ways. Aside from powering our mitochondria to produce more ATP, it also prepares our skin for the coming UV radiation around solar noon. IR light IS THE SUNSCREEN WE NEED to protect us from the deleterious effects of UV radiation.
In the late afternoon, IR light also acts to help repair damage to skin that has been overexposed to UV rays at solar noon.
In order to understand the significance of this, you have to think about how humans evolved. We ate the whole animal, not just the muscle meat. And we spent most of our days outdoors in the sun, hunting-gathering, or playing. As a result of our natural way of life, we were protected from UV rays, because we spent hours outside in the morning and in the evening, which prepared our skin for UV exposure and then helped it repair.
The takeaway? If you are going to the beach this summer, get there EARLY, stay LATE, and make sure your skin is exposed to lots of early mornings and late afternoon sunshine! During solar noon, get enough sun so that your skin gets flush but does not burn. Then wear clothing and hats to block the sun's rays until late afternoon and then...get naked again! The more exposure you give your skin to early morning sunlight, the more resilient it will be to the UV rays midday. ;).
"Yet, it has been shown that at realistic irradiances/doses, IR-A radiation has beneficial effects on collagen metabolism and upcoming UVR damage. Similar to PBM parameters, daily IR-A sun exposure delivers a much lower irradiance and fluence (dose) than powerful artificial sources (760-1450 nm).
One could, therefore, assume that early morning “sun salutation” (Surya Namaskar) and late afternoon procrastination on the beach are actually natural PBM treatments to prevent and repair, respectively. Consequently, if your shadow is taller than you are (in the early morning and late afternoon) you're taking advantage of the beneficial effects of IR-A while avoiding peak (Zenithal) harmful UVR [60, 61]. Ultimately, it is another way of being sun smart." www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4745411/

Change Happens when we Connect

Through science, community and consciousness, we can make a critical shift on this planet – one that empowers us to create a harmonious, coherent relationship with the natural world, with our inner selves, and with each other. One of the things that has always...

Do you have the courage to be real?

We live in a world that lets us believe that we’re somebody else. I don’t say that there’s something wrong with this world – we have however, collectively bought into concepts and beliefs that do not reflect the truth of who we really are. So we go through life...

True Transformation happens when you Feel the Truth

I see the shoulders of the woman in the middle of the circle drop. Resistance visibly leaves her body, and tears roll down her face. It’s so beautiful to watch, that it makes me feel humble to even witness this. If you don’t have an idea what is going on here, you...

Human by Design – Interview with Gregg Braden

Gregg Braden is a five-time New York Times best-selling author, and is internationally renowned as a pioneer in bridging science, spirituality and human potential! A while ago, I met with Gregg and we spoke for about 45 minutes, about his latest book "Human by Design"...

I AM NOT MY STORY

But I like to share a story with you.

I grew up in a very loving family in the Netherlands and experienced the strong and unconditional love of our tight-knit family, which I am very grateful for. As from the young age of 6, my parents started taking me to the Swiss Alps to help me recover from severe chronic bronchitis.

At the age of 35, I thought that I had realized everything that I could realize – I was married to a loving wife with two young boys, fifteen years of developing corporate strategies, building new divisions, introducing international product lines brought me to a position as General Manager for a large Multinational. But deep inside I knew that this wasn’t my purpose. Would I listen to this whispering little voice within?

This little voice had always told me that helping others, learning from nature’s wisdom, being kind and joyful were my true essence and that it is more natural to cooperate than to compete at the expense of others. After only ‘listening’ to my inner voice for a long time I felt it was now time to act! In 2001, I took a huge leap of faith – I told my boss that ‘I had other things to do’ and emigrated, together with my family, to the mountains in West Canada. Skiing, mountain biking, running, hiking, kayaking and just enjoying the views from our deck were our daily activities. Life couldn’t get any better. Dirk Terpstra Story | Dirk Terpstra

Then, a series of events deeply impacted my life. In a short time span my dad died, then my five year older brother lost his life after having suffered from a drug addiction for two decades, a friend died in a ski accident and finally my dearest mom whom I loved so much passed away. My life was literally falling apart – the people I loved so much were suddenly not there anymore and this left me with some gaping wounds.

One night, about two years later, I was standing outside in the darkness. I felt very down. I looked up at the sky and couldn’t ignore that it was a gorgeous sky and I was gazing at the billions of stars over my head. Despite all of my misery, I noticed that the universe looked so amazing and so mysterious. Whoever created this unfathomable wonder, my appreciation was limitless.

“I am Love! These dark events in my life are my gift and they are here to lift me higher than ever before. This is my healing!”

Suddenly, my heart started speaking and I thought: “Do I have a choice?” I spoke those words out loud without even realizing it. But I wasn’t prepared for an answer, and certainly not for an answer like this: “Of course do you have a choice – accept and try to embrace the pain that you’re feeling right now”. I didn’t see myself as a spiritual person really, and this answer that seemed to come out of nowhere took me completely off guard. The reason that this was such an extraordinary experience; I took this advice very serious.

In the next couple of days, this remarkable answer kept repeating itself in my mind and I was pondering how to ‘accept and embrace’ but no solution was being offered this time. Then I decided to let it go because ‘this trying’ made me feel even more desperate. But the moment, I let it all go, was also the moment that I felt a growing connection with my heart, and suddenly I had no trouble accepting the pain I was feeling. The feeling was so intense. Slowly I understood that it was there for a reason! I began to have clarity: “There must be a higher purpose for this to happen to me,” I thought. That’s when I was able to embrace the pain and all the emotions.

But then something beautiful happened… I saw a gorgeous bright light and I felt an infinite love deep down inside of me and I realized: “I am Love! These dark events in my life are my gift and they are here to lift me higher than ever before. This is my healing!” I could barely believe that this was happening to me. It felt like a miracle had just happened.

Not long after this enlightening experience, an angel threw a book in my lap: “Dying to be Me” was the title, and the author was Anita Moorjani. I started reading the most remarkable story about Anita’s cancer and how her near-death-experience shifted every belief that she ever had about herself and about life. I now realized that the pain I had been feeling and all the beliefs that I’d held on to were my cancer and that my exceptional experience under the stars and reading Dying to be Me was my very own near-death-experience that gave me the clearest insights. Wow! Wayne Dyer

In the fall of 2012, I decided to follow my inner calling and spread the light, kindness and love that lives inside each one of us. I founded a non-profit organization called Soul Love and started interviewing inspiring people like Anita Moorjani, Neale Donald Walsch, don Miguel Ruiz, Mooji, India.Arie, Gregg Braden, Joe Dispenza and Sonia Choquette, to name just a few. My interviews, which are often very personal, soon gained in popularity and by interviews are also being featured in OMTimes Magazine. The conversations with all of these inspiring authors, teachers, scientists, and musicians have taught me invaluable lessons and they further propelled my personal awareness and consciousness. I am grateful that you are here and I invite you to check out my articles, trainings, work funshops and other cool stuff. I also invite you to sign up for my newsletter, because I have a lot to share with you.

Love,

Shift from reacting to creating!

Secret to Life

I believe that the secret to life lies in hitting the brakes, really slowing down and learning to understand ourselves better. You can only be at peace and feel fulfilled, when you are honest with yourself and start closing the gap between who you appear to be and who you really are. You will then discover that you are beautiful.
