Beware of Harmful Cosmetic Ingredients



People use a variety of cosmetics on their skin every day. Some of the chemicals found in these products are harmful and cause a wide range of health problems. The Food and Drug Administration does not test cosmetics, but cosmetic companies are required to list all the ingredients in their products. As a consumer, you should read all cosmetic labels and be aware of what chemicals may be hazardous to your health.

Phthalates

Several phthalates exist, and they are not easy to spot on cosmetic labels. Sometimes they are referred to as diethyl phthalate, or DEP, or as dinbutyl phthalate, or DBP. Phthalates appear in nail polishes, perfumes, hair products and deodorants. They are suspected to cause reproductive issues in both men and women. Phthalates may also damage the kidneys, lungs and liver.

Propylene Glycol

Found in lipsticks, sunscreens and toiletries, propylene glycol keeps cosmetics from drying out. Propylene glycol is listed on cosmetic labels as polyethylene glycol, or PEG, and as polypropylene glycol, or PPG. This ingredient is known to cause skin and eye irritation. When the body absorbs high doses of propylene glycol, it can lead to heart, kidney and liver damage.

Talc

Face powders, blushes and body powders all contain talc. Also known as talcum powder, this ingredient may be laced with asbestos, which is a well-known carcinogen. Talc may cause chronic or acute lung disorders and may contribute to ovarian cancer. You should avoid using body powders that contain talc, especially in the genital area.

Formaldehyde

Formaldehyde sometimes appears on cosmetic labels as DMDM hydantoin, diazolidinyl urea, imidazolidinyl urea, sodium hydroxymethylglycinate or quaternium-15. Formaldehyde may be used as a preservative in a variety of cosmetics, including eye shadows, mascaras, nail polishes, soaps, creams and shampoos. Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen and may cause breathing difficulties, especially for those with asthma. When it occurs in creams or soaps, formaldehyde is absorbed into the skin and may trigger headaches and allergic reactions.

Parabens

Small levels of parabens are not considered dangerous, but so many cosmetics contain parabens that you could easily have a high exposure rate to this ingredient. Parabens are listed under the names propylparaben, methylparaben, butylparaben or ethylparaben on cosmetic labels. They are used as a preservative and appear in products such as shampoos, deodorants, shaving creams and makeup. Parabens have been linked to fertility issues and may increase your chance of developing breast cancer.

Reconnecting with your Mastery – Using subtle Sound Energy by Jill Mattson

 
Our voice changed many times throughout our lives - reflecting physical, mental and emotional metamorphoses. Our voice at two years old was different than the voice we possessed when we were ages 17, 40 or 80. Our voice is also much different when we are depressed, in love or after we land that big contract at work.
 
When in a meditative or calm state - imagine a time in the past. How did your voice sound then? Say your name aloud, while still pretending that you are in the past. For example, “I am Jill”, and I vividly imagine being at a picnic when I was eight years old. I listen, feel and grasp the emotions in my words. I can rekindle within myself the energy of that free spirited little girl – with all of her enthusiasm and excitement…before life’s trials set in. Now select another memory, recreate the situation in your imagination. Say your name. How does it feel? Does it sound differently than the earlier voice?
 
There are many advantageous applications of this simple process. Here are some examples:
·       What was the best moment of your life? What did your voice sound like? If you recreate the voice, then you recreate the energy of that moment. If you continue to express this energy in your voice today, you continue to experience the uplifting energy.
·       When have you felt the closest to God? What did your voice sound like then?  Recreate that voice and you’ll go to that space - feeling the same, close divine connection!
·       When you remember a scene from childhood and completely submerse yourself into the memory, you can speak and hear your child’s voice. If you go back early enough you will hear innocence and purity in your voice. You can bring back some of those beautiful qualities by speaking as you did then.
·       Recall a painful time, when your voice was full of negative emotions. While you are imagining you are back reliving this event, you can talk in an uplifting and positive voice. This changes your memory and its associated feelings, recreating a more positive memory. This can also facilitate an emotional release of the stored negative energy associated with this situation.
 
Our various voices contain the energy that we experienced at different times in our lives.  Listen to the sounds of your voice during power spiritual moments, times of great success and experiences of happiness. Recreate these sounds to gather and maintain the “successful” energy.

Sound: the Language of the Body by Jill Mattson

Studies are popping up all over – showing that the language of the body is sound. Invisible sound waves are the body’s secret communication system! Understanding the “Rosetta stone of body language” will unlock untold breakthrough for health.
Science maintains that nerves communicate information to the far reaches of the body through electrical impulses. Thomas Heimburg[1], a Copenhagen university, biology and physics researcher questions this, “The physical laws of thermodynamics tell us that electrical impulses must produce heat as they travel along the nerve, but experiments find no heat.”[2]  We need to rethink standard thinking about inter body communications via the nervous system.
 
Heimburg proposes that the nerves communicate information, but through sound waves. This controversial idea also explains how anesthesiology works – a mystery that has baffled scientists for years. Anesthetics change the melting point of nerve membranes so that they can’t propagate sound. Nerves are put on “stand by” and can’t report messages that the brain would interpret as pain. Do the nerves communicate pain and other things through sound waves?
 
John Beaulieu from BioSonics, links nerves and sound in an entirely new way. He believes that the high pitched, electrical ringing in one’s ears (a sound that comes and goes, not like tinnitus) is the sound of nerves communicating. By humming the sound heard in one’s ears, the sound can lesson or stop. 
 
Sharry Edwards from BioAcoustics, believes tiny ear sounds reflect communications within the body, “Our ears create intrinsic sound waves” (scientific fact). Sound goes out the ears like a radio signal, broadcasting to the rest of the body. Is the language of the body numbers (of cycles of sound waves), expressed as frequencies or sounds?
This reflects the idea of Plato and Pythagoras who insisted that “all is number” (do they meaning we should count the number of sine waves of sound?). Edwards did this very thing. By observing body sounds Edwards discovered that when waves interact, the addition or subtraction representing wave cancellation or addition is impeccably accurate. In other words the processes that occur in the body (like digesting your food) operate like interacting sound waves. Further these numbers (gotten by counting sound waves) can be correlated to chemicals and biological formulas within the body.
Our incredible and intricate bodies utilize the power of sound for communication and wave interference interactions for body maintenance and operations. Our medical field is learning this wisdom. Now it uses sound for sonograms, tens units and to heal broken bones faster.  
 
Sound, is right in front of our noses, yet we have barely scraped the surface of its secrets and mysteries. When we do, a whole new way of thinking will become evident – uplifting and tuning our world.

Bizarre Body Modifications




 Spirituality and body modification have been tied together throughout history. Ancient tribes were tattooing, scarring, and piercing themselves as part of their spirituality for hundreds, maybe thousands of years. But there are many other reasons people may do this.  Feel free to tell me more in the comment section below.
3D-Art implant is any object implanted fully under the skin for the purpose of affecting a sculptural change of the surface. The "invention" and popularization of implants as 3D-Art is credited primarily to Steve Haworth. Implants can be stretched just like piercings. A good example of this are horn implants—they start as smaller implants, and are then taken out when healed and replaced with slightly larger ones. This process is repeated to achieve the final size. There are some risks of irritation to the skin above the implant if this process is pushed too fast, as with all stretching.

One of the newest trends in body modification comes in the form of corset piercings. They are a piercing is located in the spot where the eyelets would be if one was wearing a corset. It is a symmetrical piercing with an equal number of holes on each side. As few as four holes can be used (two on each side) up to as many as the expanse of skin will allow.
series of surface piercings arranged up the back in two vertical columns. The

The Human Branding is, perhaps, the most painful of all body modifications. In full-scale branding, the iron is heated hot enough and applied long enough that the resulting wound is a third degree burn, which destroys the nerve. These third-degree burns never regain sensitivity. It will make a silver scarred area in the shape of the third degree burn, due to destruction of the entire dermis layer of the skin. The surrounding skin will eventually fill in areas that haven’t
been severely damaged, which takes years

  
One of the newest body modifications to hit the scene is tongue splitting, or tongue bifurcation. The process involves literally cutting the tongue in half directly down the center. Once the tongue is split it is possible to move both sections independently of one another.

Physicists say energy can be teleported 'without a limit of distance'.. by George Dvorsky



A team of physicists has proposed a way of teleporting energy over long distances. The technique, which is purely theoretical at this point, takes advantage of the strange quantum phenomenon of entanglement where two particles share the same existence. 

The researchers, who work out of Tohoku University in Japan, and led by Masahiro Hotta, describe their proposal in the latest edition of Physical Review A. Their system exploits properties of squeezed light or vacuum states that should allow for the teleportation of information about an energy state. In turn, this teleported quantum energy could be made useable. 

Unlike teleportation schemes as portrayed in Star Trek or The Fly, this type of teleportation describes entanglement experiments in which two entangled particles are joined despite no apparent connection between them. When a change happens to one particle, the same change happens to the other. Hence, the impression of teleportation. Physicists have conducted experiments using light, matter, and now, energy.


 According to Hotta, a measurement on the first particle injects quantum energy into the system. Then, by carefully choosing the measurement to do on the second particle, it is possible to extract the original energy.

Writing in Phys.org, Bob Yirka explains more:

Back in 2008, Hotta, with another team, first devised a theory for teleporting energy based on taking advantages of vacuum states—theory suggests they are not truly empty, instead there are particles in them that pop in and out of existence, some of which are entangled. While interesting, the theory suggested that teleporting energy could only be carried out over very short distances. In this new effort, Hotta et al have found a way to increase the teleportation distance by making use of a property known as squeezed light which is tied to a squeezed vacuum state.

Quantum mechanics laws limit the ways that values in a system (such as a vacuum) can be measured—physicists have found however, that increasing the uncertainty of one value, decrease the uncertainty of the value of others—a sort of squeezing effect. When applied to light, theory suggests, it leads to more pairs traveling together through a vacuum, which in turn leads to more of them being entangled, and that the team suggests should allow for teleporting energy over virtually any distance.
Moving forward, the researchers want to put their theory to the test in a lab. Hotta hints that his team is in the process of doing just that.

Interestingly, this work has implications to a number of related fields, including black hole physics and the quantum theory of Maxwell's demon

To learn more about this, I recommend you read this MIT article from 2010, which covered an earlier version of Hotta's theory.
