  1. Cats, Psychics and Science

    Thu 14 July 2016

    What do cats and psychics have in common?

    Many people feel a heightened sense of energy during full moon periods, such as the one coming up this weekend. Mystics from many traditions like to use the full moon as a time to deepen their psychic awareness. Yet many scientifically minded people scoff at the notion that phase of the moon differs from its other phases in any way except offering more brightness. In one way, however, science has begun to perceive what poets, psychics and other mystics have said for centuries—that domestic animals may behave differently during the time when the moon shows earth her full face.

    Poetry

    William Butler Yeats once described a black cat as “the nearest kin of the moon.” While that description obviously derives from a bit of poetic license, people have long observed that the moon does seem to exert an influence on animals. A recent study may verify a link between the phases of the moon and the behavior of cats and dogs.

    Veterinary Study

    A team of researchers from the Colorado State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences looked at data compiled from case histories of nearly 12,000 cats and dogs who received treatment at the university’s Veterinary Medical Center. They found that full moon days had a greater number of pet emergencies compared to other days of the month. Statistically, the risk for emergencies was 23 percent higher for cats and 28 percent higher for dogs during periods when the moon was full. The conditions responsible for animals coming to the clinic during full moons included traumatic injury due to accidents or fights with other animals, as well as cardiac arrest and seizures.

    Interpretation of Findings

    The veterinary research team published their findings in a 2007 issue of “The Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association.” Lead researcher Raegan Wells, DVM, emphasizes caution in reading too much into the evidence of the study. “While the results of our retrospective study indicate that there is an increased likelihood of emergency room visits on the days surrounding a full moon, it is difficult to interpret the clinical significance of these findings.” Skeptics say that rather than any “full moon effect” on animal behavior, it may simply be that increased light available on these nights draws more people and animals outdoors, leading to increased opportunities for accidents.

    Veterinary Clinic Observation

    The observations of personnel who work in veterinary hospitals seems to favor the theory that the full moon alters animal behavior Wells notes, “If you talk to any person, from kennel help, nurse, front-desk person to doctor, you frequently hear the comment on a busy night, ‘Gee is it a full moon?’ There is the belief that things are busier on full-moon nights.”

    Other Anecdotal Evidence

    Cat owners and people who work at animal shelters also report noticing a difference in animals during full moons. They notice animals seem more restless at the full moon phase each month. Cats usually content to stay at home suddenly yowl to go out. Normally well-behaved dogs may start chasing cars. Males of both species go out seeking females in heat. Overall, according to people who spend a great deal of time with animals, four-footed fur-bearing friends become more aggressive when the moon is a round orb in the sky, engaging in behaviors more likely to result in a trip to a veterinary emergency clinic.

    Other Lunar Studies

    Researchers in various fields have conducted many studies over the years attempting to pinpoint whether stories about the effects of the full moon have any scientific basis. The results have been inconclusive.In 2001, two separate studies investigated whether the incidence of animals biting humans increased during the full moon. While British researchers found a possible lunar link, although scientists in Australia found no connection between biting and the full moon. Previous studies have also looked at a possible lunar connection between human animals–including traffic accidents, employee absenteeism and women’s menstrual cycles.

    Your Thoughts

    What do you think? I assume many of you reading this are psychics, or at least aspire to develop your psychic abilities. Do you feel a different energy around the time of the Full Moon? Do you sense that your companion animal also perceives this shift and behaves differently?

  2. Are You Haunted by Psychic Numbers?

    Sun 10 April 2016

    On a lunch date with a friend a while ago a $ 5 note ‘blew’ onto my foot.  A week later, out with the same friend this happened again (she was happy to receive a free sandwich from me!)  A couple of weeks later I helped out with a magic show; at the end I could choose two envelopes –unknowingly I chose the one with a $ 5 note inside (the other being a mint).  At this point I was thinking it could be coincidence and was happily getting rich with $ 5 notes.

    Only a few days later I was walking my dog and took him in a direction I wouldn’t normally go – on the ground with no one around was a pile of $ 5 notes!  I looked about and there wasn’t a soul so I collected them and pocketed close to $ 100 in only $ 5 denominations.  I was now moving past any thoughts of coincidence. I desperately wanted to consult with a medium near me.

    This prompted me to revisit some of my old numerology books where I came across pinnacles, which are individual for each person and calculated by your birth date.  I’d read about pinnacles before but not in-depth. I realised I was about to move into a 5 pinnacle which would carry me through the next 18 years.

    The 5 is open both front and back and brings with it the energy of being open to new experiences.  The 5 pinnacle brings freedom from restrictions, change and is a turning point in life. With focus it gives you the opportunity to really do what you want to accomplish your dreams.  I feel the numbers guided me somehow and my 5 pinnacle could not be more accurate. Light Stays Retreats and Living speaks for itself! Trust me, legit psychics have told me this!

    On another note I often see repeating 11:11, which is a master vibration number.  It can surface when sending an email, looking at the clock or my computer.  It means you’re on your right path and a good time to affirm what you’d like to manifest in your life in the present tense.  For example if you’d like better health say, “I have perfect health and all is well”.

    As Deepak Chopra states “Nothing is random or by chance”.

  3. Stop Losing Money And Time With The Help Of This Personal Finance Advice

    Sat 30 January 2016

    Let's face reality. Today's current economic situation is not very good. Times are tough for people all over, and, for a great many people, money is particularly tight right now. This article contains several tips that are designed to help you improve your personal financial situation. If you want to learn to make your money work for you, keep reading.

    A trading system with high probability of successful trades, does not guarantee profit if the system does not have a comprehensive approach to cutting losing trades or closing profitable trades, in the right places. If, for example, 4 out of 5 trades sees a profit of 10 dollars, it will take only one losing trade of 50 dollars to lose money. The inverse is also true, if 1 out of 5 trades is profitable at 50 dollars, you can still consider this system successful, if your 4 losing trades are only 10 dollars each.

    If you're looking to improve your financial situation it may be time to move some funds around. If you constantly have extra money in the bank you might as well put it in a certificate of depressor. In this way you are earning more interest then a typical savings account using money that was just sitting idly.

    In order to stay on top of your personal finances, make use of one of the many website and apps out there which let you record and track your spending. This means that you'll be able to see clearly and easily where the biggest money drains are, and adjust your spending habits accordingly.

    If you don't already have one, open an IRA. You can contribute catch-up funds anytime throughout the year to get your maximum interest. This is also tax deductible. So, if you need to find a few more ways to raise those deduction amounts, it's better to pay yourself, than uncle Sam.

    Always consider a used car before buying new. Pay cash when possible, to avoid financing. A car will depreciate the minute you drive it off the lot. Should your financial situation change and you have to sell it, you might find it's worth less than you owe. This can quickly lead to financial failure if you're not careful.

    One of the things that you can do as a form of additional income is venture to the nearest yard sales in your area. Purchase items for cheap that could be worth something and resell these products online. This can help a lot by adding a couple hundred dollars to your bank account.

    An important tip to consider when working to repair your credit is to make sure that you do not get rid of your oldest credit cards. This is important because the length of time that you have had a credit is extremely important. If you plan on closing cards, close only the newest ones.

    To save money on your energy bill, clean te dust off your refrigerator coils. Simple maintenance like this can go a long way in reducing your overall expenses around the house. This easy task will mean that your fridge can function at normal capacity with a lot less energy.

    If one is looking for an easy and profitable way to get some extra money they might want to consider selling bottles of water. Cases of water can be bought at very reasonable prices and one can then sell individual bottles of water for low prices such as a dollar and make a surprising amount if selling in the right locations.

    As was talked about in the opening paragraph of this article, during the present economic downturn, times are tough for most folks. Money is hard to come by, and people are interested in improving their personal financial situation. If you utilize what you have learned from this article, you can start improving your personal financial situation.

    In astrology, some signs are bound to get on better together than others on a general level, especially when they belong to the same element, whether that’s Fire, Water, Air or Earth. Other good combinations are Fire and Air, or Earth and Water. But that doesn’t mean that some celestial combinations don’t work at all. In Your Love Signs you’ll find a few surprises in store for you, such as the fact that opposites do attract (and how!). But even with the more problematic pairings, if you persist with your partner and absolutely adore each other, love will find a way.

    We aren’t all tarred with the same celestial brush, and some signs aren’t as sexy as others. They also love at different levels, with their emotions expressed at varying rates and for a variety of reasons. What might upset or annoy you may leave me un- touched! In Your Love Signs I’ll tell you exactly what’s what about each of the twelve Sun signs. I’ll also say when some signs do better in business, or as buddies, than when they’re husband and wife, or lifelong lovers.

    This feature will help you to understand how and why you react to folk in the way that you do, even if it’s just the grocer on the comer, or your bus conductor.

If you fail at that first contact with someone, you’ll never get on to the next steps of love and sex. So if Your Sun Signs was the key to your creativity and individuality, then Your Love Signs is the guide to relating to others. Have fun!

  5. Your Retirement Questions Answered With This Advice

    The retirement years can be truly wonderful, as long as you plan for them in a deliberate, strategic way. Knowing how to prepare yourself financially for retirement and understanding how to live in order to make your money last longer is essential. The tips that follow below can serve as a terrific starting point.

    You should save as early as you can for your retirement. When you start saving early, your money has that much more time to grow for you. If you wait until your middle-age, you may need to save more per year just to make sure that you will have enough money after you retire.

    Study your employers retirement and pension plan options. If your employer is one of those who offers a standard pension plan, then find out if you are covered in this plan. You should also find out if your spouse is covered under their own pension plan, if you have a spouse.

    You may have heard of reverse mortgages. They are a relatively new option for using your home equity to help fund your retirement. You can visit this website to learn more about reverse mortgage rules. These loans allow older homeowners the ability to borrow against the value they've built up in their homes. Reverse mortgages have become especially popular in states like Florida.

    Try to start a savings account as young as possible to plan for retirement. Something with minimal risk and a high interest rate is best. The younger you start planning, the greater your opportunity will be to save. If you can begin to regularly contribute to savings in your 20s, you'll be well on your way to a nice nest egg.

    Consider taking up a class or studying a foreign language in your retirement years, to keep your mind sharp. While relaxing is all well and good, the old saying "use it or lose it" applies in your golden years. Keep your mind active and focused, or you may risk becoming forgetful during the most fun years of living!

    There is no doubt that countless folks look forward to retiring throughout their working lives. But, when the time actually arrives, the financial uncertainty can actually cause great strain. Fortunately, the information provided in the paragraphs above can serve as an ongoing reference that you can use to keep your head above water and really enjoy life after retirement.
