This Is What Americans Will Look Like By 2050

20501

By: Amanda Froelich

With the increasing trend of interracial partnerships, it’s much more common for an individual to belong to a variety of ethnic backgrounds. As PolicyMic bluntly summarized, “in a matter of years we’ll have Tindered, OKCupid-ed and otherwise sexed ourselves into one giant amalgamated mega-race.” They’re absolutely right. But what will that look like?

To answer this question, National Geographic built its 125th anniversary issue around this theme… and what they came up with is beautiful.

Renowned photographer and portrait artist, Martin Schoeller, was commissioned to capture the lovely faces of our nation’s multicultural future. This is what the average American will look like by 2050:

20502And this:

20503

What’s most entrancing is that none of these photographs are photo-shopped projections, but real people.

The numbers of these mixes will only grow. It was in 2000 that the U.S. Census Bureau let respondents check more than one race for the first time, and 6.8 million people did so. By 2010, that figure had increased to nearly 9 million – a spike of 32%.

What does this mean for the future in terms of racism? Such mixture is encouraging, but there are definitely flaws with tracking racial population growth through a survey that encourages people to self-identify. This is especially so since so many familial, cultural, and even geographical factors influence one’s decision to claim multiple races.

Race has no definition, no basis in biology, yet its constructions, functions, and mythologies irrevocably shape the world as we know it. Policy Mic further contemplates this – musing on how the trend for interracial marriages continues to grow, and in effect, how racial discrimination may optimistically dissolve in the future.

Regardless of its implications, such change should be celebrated. Intermixing is a symbol of rapidly changing America, and perhaps by 2050 we’ll witness a country united by its diversity, unique interests, and melded backgrounds.

10 Ways To Discover Your Life Purpose

1-aa-life

Living a life of purpose is a key essential ingredient of for happiness. So many people all over the World are realizing they can’t just work some dead end, unfulfilling job that doesn’t nourish the soul.

We are also realizing we perform our best when we are doing something we like and are naturally good at.  That’s where your life-purpose begins! It feels good to make a contribution and to feel as though you are doing your small personal part to make the World a better place.

Imagine a World where everyone is living their life-purpose – doing what they love. How quickly could things change for the betters?

So here’s a start, 10 Ways to Discover Your Life Purpose:

1) Consider Your Highest-Excitement

So often we can get stuck in the motions of life without stopping to consider what truly fulfills us, makes us happy and excites us to our very core. Take a moment to consider and then towrite down all of the things in life inspiring to you and don’t worry about how it relates to your life purpose for right now…

Once you have done that, take a look at your list. Do you notice any themes or patterns? Living a purposeful life is always multi-faceted, why not be a surf instructor and a life coach? Sounds pretty awesome to me.

I often say, if I’m living my life-purpose I feel like I’m thriving, and if I’m not, I feel like I’m dying. I now know my highest excitement is my internal GPS back to my purpose.

2.) Pay Attention to How You Spend your Spare Time

What do you do when no one is watching? And don’t just say Netflix!

Think about how you spend your spare time, and what you gravitate towards when you have extra time on your hands. Is it drawing, writing, making YouTube videos or even watching YouTube videos? Are you a gamer?

Pay attention to these things, as they are all the guide posts and arrows pointing you towards your life purpose. Plenty of people are here to create art, inspiring media or support other people in simple yet humble ways.

The healthy things you are inclined to do are either going to be part of your life-purpose or compliments to it.

3) Consider What You Loved to Do as a Kid

Children are so wise and do all sorts of intelligent, unassuming things. When you were a kid I bet there were a number of fun activities you loved doing. As kid…

– How did you play & what kind of toys did you play with?

– Who did you like to hang out with?

– What field trips were your favorite?

– What kind of toys did you like to play with?

– What were your favorite things to do?

Revisiting your childhood is one of the best routes to discover your life purpose. Many secrets live in our 5 year old’s curious experience of the World.

4)  Ask for Guidance in Your Dream

This is an often overlooked and powerful tool when you are seeking guidance of any kind. But specifically in regard to your life purpose, set a little intention before bedtime.

Something like: “Dear Dream Guides, I ask that you reveal and guide me to my life purpose in my dreams tonight.”

When you wake up, make sure to remember your insights and write them down! This is a very powerful tool.

5) Make a list of What You Want to Do & Get Busy

The most common life purpose challenge I’ve noticed in others I’ve worked with is they distance themselves from their life purpose and often feel it’s very different from what they are already doing.

So let’s simplify. Figure out what you want to do and make a list. Determine want you really want to do from big travel visions to simple tasks and start taking action. Consider the things that you want to do that really help other people, and prioritize it that way.

6) Let it Be the Little Things & Don’t Glamorize It

When we think of our life purpose we often think we must become the next Richard Branson, Oprah or Nicki Minaj (okay, maybe not the last one ;)

Let’s make it simple. This is the meaning of life.

Don’t get hung up on the glitz and glamour of needing to fulfill some outlandish mega-rich role in the World. There are huge unsung heroes creating miracles every day and we need them more than ever. Good things come to people who do good things.

7) Don’t Give Up & Don’t Get Frustrated with the Discovery Process

Keep going, please! Life is meant to be full of lessons, and lessons mean challenges. If the path is unclear, focus on what is clear right now and do that. That’s all you need to do.

People who achieve their goals in this World are the ones who are willing to take it one step further beyond the wall of frustration, because on the other side of that, is a breakthrough.

8) Listen to your Intuition

You are wise. Move through the World with your gut instincts and really listen to your intuition. Truly, the quickest path to discovering your life purpose, is a single moment of intentional listening. It’s all it takes.

9) Pay Attention to What Your Friends Say About You

Your friends are your reflections and hold very precious information about you. Friends always have a different, and generally refreshing perspective on how they see you, that is in comparison to how we see ourselves.

Ask your friends what they see in you and what they think you should be doing in your life and World. You might be pleasantly surprised at how much you gain from their answers.

10) Know You are Already Living Some form of Your Life Purpose

A wise friend once told me, “My life-purpose was something I do so naturally, I have overlooked it for many years.”

It’s funny how the most obvious and simplest things can be the most evasive for us. I promise you on some level, somehow you are already living your life purpose.

Be aware, be generous and take steps every day towards helping others and do what they love, and a fulfilling and purposeful life will be the gift you are receive in return, unconditionally. It’s simply universal law.

5 Signs Things Are Changing

images-3990

How are you going? How are you feeling? Does anything feel different? Have you started noticing anything new lately that you didn’t notice before?

Everywhere I look, people are reporting similar sensations of an energetic “shift”. Improved intuition, positive thought patterns and manifestation, to name a few, are all coming more naturally. Every day we learn something new and our consciousness is expanding accordingly.

And it feels liberating in so many ways!

Here are 5 signs that things are changing. Do they sound familiar?

Don’t I Know You?

Firstly, more and more people I meet seem familiar to me. It’s like we have met before – but it’s impossible. Or is it? Perhaps I have met them outside this reality and my greater awareness allows me to take note of it. Or maybe, through the same spiritual awareness I can see that we are all connected and that brings about the feelings of “knowing” someone. Or perhaps it’s something else. I’m not sure but I do know the feeling is undeniable.

Attitude of Gratitude

Secondly, through positive thought and gratitude, I am experiencing an increase in positive experiences entering my journey. Not a day goes by that I am not grateful for something.Sometimes it’s minor, sometimes more. In any case, every time I notice something positive I feel immediately grateful.

Showing gratitude is a simple matter of acknowledging the “something positive” and consciously being thankful for its inclusion in your life. This promotes even more positive experience in itself.

Gravity Shift

I have noticed that individuals I’ve only just met seem to gravitate toward me. It could be the “light” in my eyes or my positive disposition. I’m not sure. But again, it is unmistakable. I do feel a distinct lack of worrying about what others think about me, and a greater amount of confidence when dealing with new people – which could be assisting in the likability stakes.

Conversely, I have noticed in myself a distinct lack of focus on others. Previously, I have been guilty of unknowingly glaring at people – trying to “work them out”. Recently, I am told that my glare has disappeared. Sensing that we are all energetically connected, I don’t feel the need to “work people out” anymore. It is just not important.

Energy Conscious

I have noticed an increase in my awareness of the energy surrounding me. I used to think that the term ‘energy’ related solely to how much physical stamina I had. I now know differently.

To be aware of energy is to encourage it – to actively engage with it – to allow it to manifest in your world. Meditation I believe is the key to acknowledging these energies and really feeling their presence. What you do with it from there is up to you!

Abundance Mindset

We are conditioned by our society from a very early age to believe that, in order to live, we need money. And to gain money, we have to work. We endebt ourselves for a lifetime for the basic necessity of a ‘home’. To do anything else, we are told, is to be unsuccessful.

But now it seems that gaining the abundance we want in our life is as simple as allowing the energy of abundance into our life. With my newly found energy awareness, I am allowing abundance to flow more freely.

Paracas Elongated Skulls New DNA Tests Reveal Shocking Information

1aa-Elongated-Skulls

A new test performed on the Paracas Elongated Skulls has shown some shocking information about their DNA. Paracas, Peru is located in the Inca Region on the southern coast of the country and it is home to ground breaking discoveries such as the one back in 1928 by Julio Tello where a colossal graveyard was discovered that containing many tombs that were filled up with the remnants of individuals who had strange elongated skulls. Those bones are now known as the famed Paracas Skulls.

The new DNA examination performed on some of the three thousand year old skulls revealed shocking information that they might not have even come from known human beings at all but instead from a totally new human or possibly even alien species, explained one of the Paracas Museum subordinate directors, Brian Foerster.

Foerster, who has a touring agency as well in Peru and has penned nearly a dozen books on prehistoric history, explained that he found a geneticist that tested and also verified numerous different skull sections and discovered that the skulls have some sort of modified DNA which fails to match up with any identified genetic DNA material in GenBank. That is an open categorization database which contains every single piece of all recognized genetic records in the entire world.

The anonymous geneticist explained to Foerster that the DNA had mitochondrial DNA with various types of mutations that were totally unfamiliar in any primate, human or otherwise known to date. But if a couple of the fragments he was able to gather DNA sequencing from the sample actually show that these transformations they are dealing with is some sort of a new humanoid creature, it will be extremely distant from Neanderthals, Homo sapiens and Denisovans. In fact it is not known if it will even be able to fit on the evolutionary tree as it is known at the present.

However Foerster explains that the geneticist who stated all this, does hired work for the United States Government from time to time. He explained the geneticist wants to go public with his amazing findings but not just yet. Before he does so, he wants to be absolutely sure all the tests come back with his theory proven conclusively.

It has always been believed that the skulls were an elongated shaped due to some sort of cranial malformation, where the heads were forced to be flattened out so they would grow in the odd shapes, but Foerster does not think so with the skulls of Paracas.

He says that from doctors he has talked to, they have told him it is possible to change the shape of a skull but not increase the size. A skull is genetically programmed to already have a specific volume and that cannot be changed.

There are still a lot of tests to be done to verify what the skulls DNA is, but genetic studies cost much money. With the aid of attracted individuals over the past two years, Foerster has been able to raise nearly $7,100 in order to begin the first of the DNA testing, but a complete genome examination to authenticate the theory would cost over $100,000, so he is hopeful that other geneticists might be willing to donate both their time and equipment for the goodness of all humanity.

He states that he just wants to find out who these people really were. He knows that the findings from this will be enormous, no matter what the final results turn out to be. Paracas, Peru may end up being home to a species of humanoid that does not even fit on the evolutionary tree as it is now known. All because of the bones known as the famed Paracas Skulls.

How to Increase Your Spiritual Awareness

holographicuniverseII

Many of us seem to think that being spiritual means we have to be religious. Just because you aren’t directly affiliated with a specific religion doesn’t mean you shouldn’t strive to be more spiritual. The whole concept of spiritual awareness isn’t all about connecting with a higher divine power, but also connecting with nature and yourself. Once you have established this connection, you will see life from a whole different perspective. People with a highly developed sense of spiritual awareness are often less prone to depression, addiction, manipulation, and control. In addition, they generally understand what it means to be truly happy.

Here are five techniques that can help you increase your spiritual awareness:

Technique #1: Learn to communicate to your soul

Your soul is an energy entity that holds part of your awareness and memories. Its energy is what animates your body. In other words, your physical body acts like a vehicle to house your soul, so that it can experience what it means to live in the material realm. For these reasons, your soul is your true identity. Your body isn’t your true identity, because it’s made of matter, which is made of atoms that are mostly empty space. The space that isn’t empty in atoms isn’t solid, but is actually made of energy. So, what does this mean? It means that matter and your body are more like illusions or projections. The only thing that is truly real is energy which is what your soul is made of.

To communicate to your soul, you need to first believe that you have one. Next, learn how to calm your mind so that you can hear the subtle voice and feeling inside you. A great way to calm your mind is to do breathing exercises. Meditation is also another great technique to strengthen your ability to communicate to your soul.

Technique #2: Get plenty of sleep

Create a schedule that makes it possible for you to get at least 6 to 8 hours of sleep every night. Once you have created this schedule, try to stick to it. Not only will you find that getting lots of sleep every single night allows your body to recover from fatigue, but you are also making it easier for you to focus your thoughts. Staying in control of your thoughts is important for increasing your spiritual awareness, because your thought is the energy entity that constructs your reality.

Technique #3: Spend time with nature

The secrets of life are embedded in nature. If you want to increase your spiritual awareness so that you can understand what life is, you need to study nature and learn how to live in harmony with it. As your connection to nature strengthens, your spiritual awareness will also increase. The reason for this is because when you become more aware of your natural environment, you start to see why things occur the way they do. This awareness can help you understand who you are and why you are here.

Technique #4: Stay positive and laugh often

Laughter is an important part of a healthy mind and body. When you laugh, you secrete a chemical that automatically boosts your mood and improves your physical health. After a good laugh, you will often find that your problems no longer seem so huge, causing you to have a positive attitude. The great thing about being a person who laughs a lot is that laughter is contagious. When you laugh, people around you will generally feel better, and pretty soon everyone will be happier and more spiritually connected.

Technique #5: Activate your pineal gland

The pineal gland is a powerful and mysterious small gland located in the center of your brain. This small gland is also referred to as the third, inner or mind’s eye. The pineal gland is believed to have mystical properties. Many spiritual teachers believe it has the ability to see the spiritual realm and is the “seat of the soul.” The pineal gland is the section in the head that anchors the soul to the rest of the body.

When the pineal gland is working properly, it becomes easier to communicate to your soul and spiritual realms. Have you ever had an experience when you are in the process of waking up and you saw your room with a 360-degree view, even when you slightly opened your eyes? This 360-degree view is the result of your pineal gland being activated.

Most adults’ pineal gland is somewhat inactive due to the lack of use and the ingestion of harmful chemicals that can calcify it. One of the most harmful synthetic chemicals to the pineal gland is sodium fluoride. This form of fluoride is a wast byproduct of the fertilizer industry. The natural version of fluoride is known as calcium fluoride, which is often found in ground water and soil in tiny amounts.

Sodium fluoride is common in conventional toothpaste. It is unhealthy for the pineal gland because when it is exposed to sodium fluoride for long periods of time, it can calcify the pineal gland. For more techniques on how to activate your pineal gland, read this article titled Calcified Pineal Gland: How to Decalcify It.
