    Mirror Dragon Tarot -Week 17-

    Mirror Dragon Tarot -Week 17-

    What an interesting confluence of cards. This week we have two of the three Magicians that have been included with this version of the Thoth deck. The three Magi are just one of the reasons I love the Thoth system. They’re not available with every version of the deck printed and I was lucky enough to get one of them as my first Aleister Crowley deck so now the two extras are like old friends who pop in unexpectedly and broaden the conversation with their extra wisdom.

    Cultural Pickup: Letting Go of Handshaking

    It's flu and cold season again, and everyone is busy rushing to get their shots to try and ward it off. It's always a gamble. As a father of three, I can attest to the accumulative hours my wife and I have waited at the doctor's office for shots (or results of not getting one). But is the flu shot the end all to be all? Of course, not, so it's really important to take preventative measures.

    There comes a time in everyone's life where you realize you aren't invincible, that we are all going to physically decline and eventually die. Everyone's journey is different so everyone has this realization at different points in their life. A ten year old cancer patient will probably realize long before an athletic cheerleader, think even when that ten year olds younger sibling will have the same realization. We all understand this and yet most do not consider their health a priority, even with recent medical breakthroughs and technology humans still make poor health decisions.

    The Mystery of Observation

    As we all know, each human being has the ability to sense certain aspects of their surroundings. We see colors and figures, we hear sounds and music, we smell, we taste, we touch.. Yet neuroscientists were able to prove that some people have a condition that mixes up the whole sensory system. Smelling colors, seeing sounds.. How is it possible? How can these beings sense things that we shouldn’t be able to sense?

    Growing up, I had to learn to be singled out in certain things and be alright with it. Say, sports, for example. That was something I never knew I'd be awful at, but had to learn to accept that being picked last for the team would eventually become the norm someday. And, by accepting that, it could eventually be something I'd shrug off and laugh about in later years.

    Improving Mental and Cognitive Health

    Many people struggle with emotional eating, and oftentimes, the food sources are less than healthy. While food is to be used as a fuel source for the body’s health, mindless eating in a response to an emotional need can simply make matters worse. The psychological health of your mind is just as dependent on the food you eat as the physical health of your body. When your mind is fighting depression or anxiety, your body’s response is both emotional and physical. Fatigue and a lack of energy are two of the body’s primary physical responses to mental health concerns.

It will overwork the body and leave rewards of energy. Practice happens when walking, swimming, or running. It controls weight, attacks health conditions and disease, and improves mood. Exercise will enhance the quality of life, so everyone must get active. A 2017 study by the American Heart Association is that adults who watched more than 4 hours of television a day had a 46% chance risk of death from any cause and an 80% risk of death from cardiovascular disease(1).

But if you are a busy individual with a desk job, and you haven't really got around changing your exercise habits, the good news is that it's never too late to begin exercising. You could start slowly, and then find various new ways to include more physical activity in your life. If you want to get the most benefit out of regular exercise, you should consider trying to get the suggested amount of exercise specified for your age group. If you feel that you can do that, the benefits are that you will definitely feel better; it will help control many diseases, and also let you live longer.

    Burnout Rant

    Growing up, I was a bit of a problematic kid. I couldn’t sit still, and my eyes would water as soon as I had to focus on anything. I couldn’t grasp things that other people in my class were able to grasp. I would get extra help from the “other” teachers and could never really handle it—I wanted to be anywhere but in that situation. By the time I was in grade 10, I had certain teachers full on insult me for my inability to grasp math. I felt like I was inadequate, and I hated being different. It wasn’t only until the past 10 years that I grasped the fact that I had learning disabilities that held me back in this way.

    The Benefits of Yoga

    Are you getting tired of your workout routine? Are you feeling more stressed than usual? Trust me, I've been there. When I was seventeenI hurt my elbow in a baton twirling incident. And now whenever I do bodyweight exercises like push ups, and planks, and even mountain climbers, I would get this stinging pain in my elbow. So I decided to switch to weight lifting. Which did amazing things for my body, I'm not even going to lie to you. But I had somethings happen in life and I no longer could afford a gym membership, I had a lot going on and I was super stressed. I started losing all of my motivation to get out of bed. Someone told me to try out Yoga. So one day when I was feeling more motivated than most days, I forced myself out of bed, went on Youtube, and followed along with a "stress relieving yoga routine." It was super basic, definitely would recommend for beginners, I can include a link to the video at the end of this post. :) Anyway, I followed along with the video, and I found myself wanting to do another one, because I felt so relaxed, but motivated afterwards. It was amazing. And it's helped me tremendously in giving my elbow some conditioning. I very rarely feel that stinging pain when I workout now.
