The Real "Ma" and "Pa": 20 Rare and Amazing Vintage Photographs That Show What The People From ‘Little House On The Prairie’ Really Looked Like: The Little House on the Prairie books series is a children’s literature classic that’s not only entertaining, but provides a unique snapshot of life in the Midwestern United States at a time when that area was rapidly changing. Little House on the Prairie has a special place in the hearts of Americans and many others around the world. Laura Ingalls Wilder’s stories, based on her real-life experience of growing up amid the hardships of the Midwest during the late 19th century, have struck a chord with generations of readers and viewers. Though the book series and the popular TV show based on it are fictional, they draw heavily on author Laura Ingalls Wilder’s real life and family. Take a look at these rare photos of the people behind the timeless stories... 1. 1860: The Real "Ma" and "Pa" Charles and Caroline Ingalls, the original "Ma" and "Pa" from Little House on the Prairie, on their wedding day on February 1, 1860. Charles was born in 1836 and spent the majority of his youth in the tallgrass prairie of Campton Township, just west of Elgin, Illinois. He met and quickly married a 21-year old Caroline Lake Quiner, who was working as a schoolteacher at the time, and they made a home in Pepin County, Wisconsin. They had their first daughter, Mary Amelia, in January, 1865, followed by the birth of Laura in February, 1867. Despite being a high-spirited, outgoing man, Charles wasn't much for people, and he had an insatiable wanderlust. In 1869, before Laura was two years old, he packed up the family and moved to Missouri, then to a town near what is now Independence, Kansas, where their third daughter, Carrie, would be born in 1870. 2. Carrie, Mary, and Laura Ingalls, ca. 1882 From left to right: Carrie, Mary, and Laura Ingalls around 1882. Mary had lost her sight three years earlier. The young family would soon realize that the Kansas land wasn't open to settlers, so over the next few years, they spent time in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa. Grace Pearl was born in May, 1877, and the family was struggling to make ends meet. In 1879, Charles accepted a job as a clerk and bookkeeper with the railroad in Dakota Territory, which sparked the move to the town of De Smet in 1880. The following winter's terrible storms and conditions would be the basis for the novel, The Long Winter. 3. Laura in De Smet, 1884 Laura in 1884 at age 17 Laura quickly got involved with life in the newly-formed (and growing) town of De Smet. She attended school, made friends, and obtained her teaching certificate, which enabled her to begin teaching in 1882, a full two months before her 16th birthday! At the same time, she began courting Almanzo Wilder, a young homesteader whom she called "Manly". Though 10 years her senior, Almanzo fell deeply in love with Laura and would drive her back and forth between De Smet and the town where se was teaching 12 miles away. They married in 1885 and settled on the Wilder's claim and began their life as farmers. 4. Laura and Almanzo, ca. 1885-86 Laura and Almanzo in their first year of marriage, likely 1885 or 1886. 5. The Ingalls Family in 1891 From left to right: Caroline ("Ma"), Carrie, Laura, Charles ("Pa"), Grace, and Mary. The family took 1890 and 1891 to rest and recover, and the photos from a studio session in 1891 shows that Laura was of good health and vitality at the end of her rest. 6. Laura in 1891 This early 1891 portrait of Laura captures that she had returned to good health. Almanzo still was struggling, but Laura helped them continue work, and they kept their ears to the ground for new opportunities. 7. Portrait of Laura and Almanzo, 1891 In October, 1891, Laura, Almanzo, and a young Rose traveled to Florida in hopes that the warm weather would be better for Almanzo's health and farming. You can tell from the photo above that Laura certainly didn't love it; indeed, she could barely tolerate the humidity and weather, and the family moved back to De Smet, South Dakota in August 1892. 8. Laura, ca. 1898 A young Laura Ingalls Wilder on the porch of her rented home in Mansfield, Missouri around 1898. After a short time back in De Smet after the disastrous trip to Florida, the family quickly made way to Mansfield, Missouri by covered wagon. Almanzo put a $100 down payment to buy 40 acres of hilly, rocky land that Laura would name "Rocky Ridge Farm". This farm would eventually be expanded and serve as the couple's home for the rest of their lives. Labels: 1800s, 1900s, 1910s, culture, famous people, life, portraits.

Los primeros síntomas del Alzheimer suelen aparecer luego de los 60 años, sin embargo, en personas con predisposición genética se presentarían alrededor de los 40. Algunas señales de alarma son olvidos frecuentes, dificultad para resolver problemas cotidianos, desorientación, dificultad para expresarse y cambios de humor y personalidad. ¡Mantén tu cerebro activo! De acuerdo con científicos de la Universidad de California en San Diego, aprender otros idiomas y llevar a cabo actividades como los juegos de destreza mental ayudarían a mantener el cerebro saludable por más tiempo, contrarrestando los efectos de las enfermedades neurodegenerativas. 1. Cítricos Las propiedades antioxidantes de la vitamina C evitarían la acumulación de los compuestos dañinos en las células del cerebro, haciendo de esta vitamina un nutriente útil para prevenir el Alzheimer. 2. Té verde Al ser digerido, el té verde libera diversos antioxidantes que serían útiles para evitar la acumulación de proteínas en el cerebro y reducir la oxidación que sufren las neuronas, lo cual ayudaría a prevenir problemas de memoria y demencia. 3. Curry El curry se produce a base de cúrcuma, que es rica en curcumina, un poderoso antioxidante. Según la Dra. Sally Frautschy, de la Universidad de California en Los Angeles, La curcumina sería útil para prevenir el Alzheimer, pues ha demostrado ser efectiva para eliminar y evitar la formación de la placa amiloide, principal causante de la enfermedad. 4. Café El café evitaría la acumulación en el cerebro de las proteínas que dañan a las neuronas, por lo que sería útil para prevenir el Alzheimer e incluso para ralentizar su progreso en pacientes que ya presentan síntomas. 5. Vino El alcohol tiene propiedades antiinflamatorias, por lo que tomar una copa al día ayudaría a evitar la inflamación del tejido cerebral, condición relacionada con la aparición de Alzheimer y otras formas de demencia. 6. Moras y bayas Según la Dr. Barbara Shukitt-Hale, de la Universidad Tufts, El cerebro requiere mucho oxígeno para funcionar, por lo que las neuronas están expuestas a muchos radicales libres, lo que puede dañarlas; no obstante, las moras y bayas son ricas en flavonoides, antioxidantes que evitarían este daño, reduciendo el riesgo de demencia. 7. Vitamina D La vitamina D3 estimularía al sistema inmune para que eliminara las proteínas beta-amiloide, causantes del daño neuronal vinculado con el Alzheimer; así, mantener un buen nivel de esta vitamina serviría para prevenir la enfermedad. 8. Chocolate El chocolate oscuro mejoraría las habilidades cognitivas y evitaría la aparición de Alzheimer y otras formas de demencia: Esto se debería a los flavonoles que contiene, los cuales mejorarían el flujo de sangre al cerebro manteniendo a las neuronas sanas. 9. Vitamina B Un consumo adecuado de Vitaminas B6 y B12 ayudaría a reducir el encogimiento del cerebro relacionado con el Alzheimer: según el Dr. David Smith, de la Universidad de Oxford, esto se debería a que La vitamina B reduciría los niveles de homocisteína en la sangre, una sustancia nociva para el cerebro que propiciaría su encogimiento y deterioro.

A continuación hábitos que matan nuestras neuronas y las razones: 1. No Desayunar. La gente que no desayuna tiene bajo nivel de azúcar en la sangre. Esto genera insuficiente suministro de nutrientes al cerebro causando su degeneración paulatina. 2.Comer de más. Esto causa el endurecimiento de las arterias del cerebro, causando además baja capacidad mental. 3. Fumar. Causa la disminución del ta maño cerebral y promueve además Alzheimer. 4. Consumir altas cantidades de azúcar. El alto consumo de azúcar interrumpe la absorción de proteínas y nutrientes causando malnutrición y puede interferir en el desarrollo del cerebro. 5. Inhalar aire contaminado. El cerebro es el más grande consumidor de oxígeno del cuerpo. Inhalar aire contaminado disminuye su oxigenación generando una disminución de la eficiencia cerebral. 6. Dormir poco. El dormir permite al cerebro descansar. La falta de sueño por periodos prolongados acelera la pérdida de células del cerebro. 7 Dormir con la cabeza cubierta. Dormir con la cabeza cubierta aumenta la concentración de dióxido de carbono y disminuye el oxígeno causando efectos adversos a nuestro cerebro. 8. Hacer trabajar al cerebro cuando estamos enfermos. Trabajar y estudiar cuando estás enfermo además de la dificultad del cerebro para responder en ese estado, lo daña. 9. Falta de estimulación: Pensar es la mejor manera de estimular nuestro cerebro; no hacerlo provoca que el cerebro disminuya su tamaño y por lo tanto su capacidad.

15 Only Surviving Photos Of Veterans of the Napoleonic Wars: In 1815, Napoléon Bonaparte and his Grande Armée were finally defeated during the Battle of Waterloo. Even after Napoléon’s death in 1821, the warriors who fought with him continued to revere him and pay their respects every 5th of May — the anniversary of his death. Wearing the uniforms they fought in, complete with epaulettes, medals, sashes, plumes and swords, the proud veterans marched to Paris’ Place Vendôme to pay homage to the Emperor. It was during one of these occasions that these photographs were taken, possibly in 1858, when these men were well into their 70s and 80s. These are their only surviving images. 1. Grenadier Burg, 24th Regiment of the Guard, 1815. 2. Monsieur Mauban, 8th Dragoon Regiment, 1815. 3. Monsieur Moret, 2nd Regiment, 1814-15. 4. Monsieur Ducel Mameluke de la Garde, 1813-1815. 5.

Las personas se la pasan la mayor parte de su vida sintiéndose ofendidas por lo que alguien les hizo. La sorprendente revelación que te voy a hacer, va a cambiar tu vida… ¡Nadie te ha ofendido! Son tus expectativas de lo que esperabas de esas personas, las que te hieren. Y las expectativas las creas tú con tus pensamientos. No son reales. Son imaginarias. Si tu esperabas que tus padres te dieran más amor y no te lo dieron, no tienes por qué sentirte ofendido. Son tus expectativas de lo que un padre ideal debió hacer contigo, las que fueron violadas. Y tus ideas son las que te lastiman. Las personas son un río caudaloso. Cualquier intento de atraparlas te va a lastimar. Ámalas, disfrútalas y déjalas ir. Entonces ¿CÓMO PUEDO PERDONAR? 1) Entiende que nadie te ha ofendido. Son tus ideas acerca de cómo deberían actuar las personas, las que te hieren. Estas ideas son producto de una máscara social, que has aprendido desde tu infancia de forma inconsciente. Reconoce que la mayoría de las personas NUNCA va a cuadrar con esas ideas que tienes. Porque ellos tienen las suyas. 2) Deja a las personas ser. Deja que guíen su vida como mejor les plazca. Es su responsabilidad. Dales consejos si te los piden, pero permite que tomen sus decisiones. Es su derecho divino por nacimiento: el libre albedrío y la libertad. 3) Nadie te pertenece. Ni tus padres, ni amigos ni parejas. Todos formamos parte del engranaje de la naturaleza. Deja fluir las cosas sin resistirte a ellas. Vive y deja vivir. 4) Deja de pensar demasiado. Ábrete a la posibilidad de nuevas experiencias. No utilices tu inventario. Abre los ojos y observa el fluir de la vida como es. Cuando limpias tu visión de lentes obscuros y te los quitas, el resultado es la limpieza de visión. 5) Intoxícate con la vida. La vida real es más hermosa y excitante que cualquier idea que tienes del mundo. Me complacerá decírtelo por experiencia. 6) Imagina a esa persona que te ofendió en el pasado. Imagínate que ambos están cómodamente sentados. Dile por qué te ofendió. Escucha su explicación amorosa de por qué lo hizo. Y perdónala. Si un ser querido ya no está en este mundo, utiliza esta dinámica para decirle lo que quieres. Escucha su respuesta. Y dile adiós. Te dará una enorme paz. 7) A la luz del corto período de vida que tenemos, solo tenemos tiempo para vivir, disfrutar y ser felices. Nuestra compañera la muerte en cualquier momento, de forma imprevista, nos puede tomar entre sus brazos. Es superfluo e inútil gastar el tiempo en pensar en las ofensas de otros. No puedes darte ese lujo. 8.) Es natural pasar por un periodo de duelo al perdonar, deja que tu herida sane. Descárgate (no confundir con desquítate) con alguien para dejar fluir el dolor. Vuelve a leer este artículo las veces necesarias y deja que los conceptos empiecen a sembrar semillas de conciencia en tu interior. Aprende con honestidad los errores que cometiste, prométete que no lo volverás a hacer y regresa a vivir la vida. Marco Engelke (Fragmento)

These Colorized Historical Photos Make The Past Seem VERY Real. Marina Amaral is fascinated with history; one way she is bringing the past back to life is with the use of Photoshop. Amaral restores old photos originally shot in black and white and gives them color. The artist researches the time, fashion, and even seeks professional experts in order for the images to look and feel as authentic as possible. Marina feels the new color updates changes our relationship to events. “It is a complex process able to transport us to anywhere.

26 Beautiful Portraits of Native American Teen Girls From Between the 1870s and 1890s: The Native American Indians are an important part of the culture of the United States. While their people have lived on this land for thousands of years, today their numbers are dwindling. Once, the Native Americans lived on this continent with little discourse and disruption. They were well fed, content, and established. In fact, the men and women usually were placed in typical roles. Each of these beautiful portraits of Native American girls were taken from between the 1870s and 1890s. The images have been well preserved and it gives us a tiny window into the past where we can admire these women, their unique style, and show respect for their lives. Although Native American women often had different roles than the men they were greatly respected. They often had the same sorts of rights at the men in their tribe which is incredible for the time period. In some groups, women were the ones who owned the home and property inside. While it was typical for a chief to be male there were some tribes that would have the women select who he would be. Labels: 1800s, culture, girls, portraits, teenager

Faces of Century: These Photos of People When They Were Young and At 100 Will Leave You Amazed! So many things change when a person ages. Wrinkles, changing hairlines, graying hair, the list goes on... But one thing that always stays the same is a person's identity. For his photo project called Faces of Century, photographer Jan Langer captured over a dozen Czech centenarians and compared their pictures of when they were young, and when they were over 100 years old. “How these people see their life after such a period? The majority of those I approached agree that with advancing age life is faster; until, at last, the life will pass in a moment,” Langer says. “Time is shrinking, as are the faces of the elders. I wondered what changes and what remains on a human face and in a human mind in such a long time, and in such a short while in relative terms. I wondered how much loneliness of the old age weighs, and what memories stay in 100-year-old mind.” This set of comparative photos (of archive portraits from the family album and contemporary portraits from the present time) explores the similarities and the differences in appearance and in physiognomy. The characteristics of personality change throughout life but it seems as if individual nature remains rooted in the abyss of time. 1. Marie Burešová, 23 Years Old (Wedding), 101 Years Old. 2. Antonín Kovár, 25 Years Old (Bandmaster Of His Own Band), 102 Years Old. 3. Vlasta Cížková, 23 Years Old (Finished Girl High School), 101 Years Old. 4. Marie Fejfarová, Her Personal History Was Burnt; On The Right 101 Years Old. 5. Antonín Baldrman, 17 Years Old (Skilled Locksmith), 101 Years Old. 6. Prokop Vejdelek, 22 Years Old (Oath Of Enlistment), 101 Years Old. 7. Anna Pochobradská, Around 30 Years Old, 100 Years Old. 8. Bedriška Köhlerová, 26 Years Old (Wedding), 103 Years Old. 9. Vincenc Jetelina, 30 Years Old (Finished His House), 105 Years Old. 10. Stanislav Spácil, 17 Years Old (Skilled Electrician), 102 Years Old. 11.

Awesome Portrait Photos of Rock Stars of the 1960s and 1970s at Home With Their Parents: They had fame, reams of money and fans willing to do wild, unmentionable things just to breathe the same air — but in its September 24, 1971 issue, LIFE magazine illustrated a different side of the lives of rock stars. Like other mere mortals, they often came from humble backgrounds, with moms and dads who bragged about them, fussed over them, called them on their nonsense and worried about them every single day. Assigned to take portraits of the artists at home with their sweetly square folks, photographer John Olson traveled from the suburbs of London to Brooklyn to the Bay Area, capturing in his work the love that bridged any cultural and generational divides that existed between his subjects. Here's a gallery of Rock legends -- Clapton, Zappa, Elton John, Grace Slick and more -- and their totally square, totally sweet parents. 1. Frank Zappa in his Los Angeles home with his dad, Francis, his mom, Rosemarie, and his cat in 1970. 2. The Jefferson Airplane’s Grace Slick poses with her mother, Virginia Wing, in the living room of the home where she grew up in Palo Alto, California in 1970. 3. In one of the photos that ultimately ran in LIFE (photographer John Olson went back to Palo Alto for a re-shoot), new mom Grace dangles her daughter China by the feet in 1971. 4. In 1970 Rose Clapp shows off her tea service and Eric Clapton, her rock-god guitarist grandson, Surrey, England. 5. The former Reggie Dwight, later known as Elton John, laughs with his mom Sheila Fairebrother and her husband Fred (whom he affectionately called "Derf," Fred spelled backwards) in their suburban London apartment in 1970. 6. David Crosby with his father, 1970. 7. Ginger Baker and his mum, 1970. 8. Ginger Baker, the Cream and Blind Faith drummer, flashes a rare smile with his mother Ruby Streatfield inside her rowhouse in Bexley, outside London, in 1970. 9. Joe Cocker with his mother, 1970. 10. Grace steps outside with her mom and little China in 1971. 11. Richie Havens with his parents, Brooklyn in 1970. 12. The Jackson 5 with their parents standing by, 13-year-old dynamo Michael (front left) and his brothers Jackie, Marlon, Tito and Jermaine straddle their motorbikes by the pool, 1970. 13. Scottish folk musician Donovan and his parents, Donald and Winifred Leitch, England in 1970. Labels: 1970s, culture, famous people, life, music, portraits

OLD PHOTOS OF STUDIO 54, Decadence Never Looked So Fabulous.
It's a legendary nightclub with as much intrigue surrounding it as the late seventies itself: It was a time when art, culture, music, and nightlife came together in a perfect storm of (often) drug-fueled disco dancing and depravity. Owned by entrepreneur Steve Rubell, the club had a reputation for getting down and dirty, all the while hosting some of the era's most famous faces. Crowds linger outside the entrance to Studio 54, which was at one point Manhattan's most popular nightclub. Andy Warhol and his crew frequented Studio 54 in its heyday. Designer Diane von Furstenberg appears on the floor looking ravishing. Actor and comedian Robin Williams dances with his wife, Valerie Velardin in 1979. Dame Rollerena, drag queen who skated the streets of New York, doing her thing at Studio 54. Singer Bette Midler greets The Temptations, who were at Studio 54 to celebrate their new recording contract. Dancer Rudolf Nureyev initiates nine-year-old Ricky Schroder, a brand new movie star, into the Studio 54 dance club. An unidentified woman whispers in the ear of British rock star Elton John.

La riqueza y la prosperidad no son el resultado de la suerte o del destino, sino que puede crearse y TÚ PUEDES hacerlo. Todos tenemos el poder y la capacidad de crear no sólo riquezas, sino riqueza en abundancia sean cuales sean nuestras circunstancias y posición en la vida. 1) EL PODER DE LAS CREENCIAS SUBCONCIENTES: - La gente no logra lo que es capaz de hacer, sino lo que se cree capaz de hacer. - Todas las circunstancias de nuestra vida son un reflejo de nuestras creencias subconscientes. - La gente generalmente gana lo que creen que valen. - Podemos cambiar nuestras creencias subconscientes a través de la autosugestión. - ¡La mente puede lograr cualquier cosa que pueda concebir y creer! 2) EL PODER DE UN DESEO ARDIENTE -Si no tienes riqueza abundante en tu vida es porque no tienes un deseo ardiente de ella. -No puedes obtener nada que merezca la pena en esta vida a no ser que tengas un deseo ardiente de ello. -Tienes un deseo ardiente cuando estás dispuesto a hacer todo lo que sea preciso para lograrlo y sacrificar lo que sea (excepto tu salud, relaciones y el respeto por ti mismo). -Puedes crear un deseo ardiente por algo empleando la táctica de los tres Fantasmas de la Navidad. -Recuerda el dolor que la falta de dinero te ha causado en el pasado. -Piensa en todo el dolor que la falta de dinero te está causando en el presente. -Piensa en todo el dolor que la falta de dinero te causará en el futuro si tu situación económica no cambia. ¡Imagínate todo el placer que te aportará en el futuro tener medios económicos en abundancia! 3) EL PODER DE LA SOLIDEZ DE PROPÓSITO -Puedes lograr cualquier cosa que desees en la vida siempre y cuando sepas exactamente lo que quieres y por qué lo quieres. -Debes ser específico a la hora de marcarte metas, saber las razones que descansan tras ellas y cuando deseas lograrlas, por ejemplo, no es suficiente decir que quieres ser rico. Debes decidir la cantidad exacta de dinero que deseas adquirir, las propiedades que deseas tener y lo que deseas hacer con el dinero. -Siempre formula y escribe tus metas como afirmaciones en el tiempo presente. Por ejemplo: -Escribe tus objetivos, léelo tres veces al día por la mañana, por la tarde y por la noche. -Visualízate habiendo logrado esas metas. -Identifica las razones por las que debes lograr esas metas. -Recuerda que la prosperidad y la riqueza no consisten en acumular dinero y posesiones por sí mismas, sino en el poder que nos aportan a la hora de satisfacer los propósitos que nos hemos marcado en la vida. 4) EL PODER DE UN PLAN DE ACCIÓN ORGANIZADO - Si quieres asegurarte el éxito de tus metas debes desarrollar una estrategia, un plan de acción organizado. - Recuerda siempre la regla de oro en la resolución de problemas: cuando crees que ya has explotado todas las posibilidades, recuerda una cosa ¡no lo has hecho! - Si quieres triunfar en algo debes hacer tres cosas: organízate, organízate y ¡organízate! - Utiliza la técnica de los diez puntos para desarrollar un plan para cada una de tus metas, realizando una lista de diez maneras posibles de lograr tus objetivos. - Antes de aceptar un trabajo o abrir una empresa, hazte las siguientes preguntas: - ¿Disfrutaré con este tipo de trabajo?, ¿Está el trabajo en consonancia con mis talentos y capacidades?, ¿Me acercará a mis metas profesionales y económicas? 5) EL PODER DEL CONOCIMIENTO ESPECIALIZADO - Nadie ha reunido jamás RIQUEZA en ABUNDANCIA sin haber adquirido antes un conocimiento especializado: sobre la ley fiscal, los planes de inversión y ahorro, su propio campo empresarial o sobre lo que sus clientes quieren o necesitan. - El conocimiento es poder solo cuando se organiza bien y se aplica de forma inteligente en la consecución de un fin definido. - No es preciso que tú mismo lo sepas todo, pero necesitas saber dónde y cómo obtener la información que irás precisando. 6) EL PODER DE LA PERSEVERANCIA - El éxito no es normalmente el resultado de un esfuerzo, sino de la acumulación de muchos esfuerzos. La diferencia entre la gente que triunfa y los que no, no radica necesariamente en su talento ¡sino en su perseverancia! - Después de una acción que no produjo los resultados deseados, siempre pregúntate: ¿Qué hice bien para que durase ese tiempo? De esta manera siempre te sentirás animado a probar de nuevo. - Si adoptas la táctica del cantero (trabajador de una cantera que golpea las rocas con su pico), perseveras, nunca dejas de insistir y aprendes de cada experiencia, siempre lograrás la empresa que te propongas. 7) EL PODER DE LA REGULACIÓN DE GASTOS - La riqueza no viene determinada por el dinero que ganas, sino por la calidad de vida resultante. - La regulación de gastos te ayudará a vivir a gusto dentro de tus posibilidades y a crear más ingresos. - Cualquier persona con ingresos limitados necesita administrar lo que gasta para asegurarse una fuente continua de ingresos. - ...

Regressão a Vidas Passadas - Brian Weiss (Português)
O estado de concentração relaxada é normal e, portanto, não representa qualquer perigo. Sempre que você quiser , você pode retornar a um estado de consciência plena. É muito importante observar o seguinte : 1. É impossível ser pego no estado hipnótico , porque é apenas uma espécie de concentração. Você pode abrir os olhos e concluir o processo a qualquer momento. 2. Você sempre tem o controle. 3. É impossível fazer algo contra a sua vontade ou seus princípios. 4. Nunca diga ou faça algo em um estado de inconsciência , porque a hipnose não é como estar dormindo. A pessoa hipnotizada é constantemente consciente de seus pensamentos , e seu subconsciente permanece ativo e acordado. 5. A hipnose é como sonhar acordado, não gosto de ser anestesiado. Tudo que você tem a fazer é manter uma atitude receptiva e sem preconceitos . Não tem nada a temer ou perder, eo que você vai melhorar muito a qualidade de sua vida. Lembre-se que, se alguma memória ou experiência que percebido durante o jogo faz com que ele se sinta desconfortável, pode flutuar acima da cena e assistir de longe, como se estivesse vendo um filme. Você também pode abrir os olhos e terminar a meditação a qualquer momento. Espalhe de emoções. Sempre manter o controle da situação . Se, no entanto , você se sentir confortável durante a regressão , preste atenção a cada detalhe, seja visual ou de outra forma . Você ficará surpreso com o que você pode experimentar e aprender . Medos e distúrbios actualmente a sofrer uma diminuição dramática e é provável que perceber sua verdadeira natureza espiritual. Antes de começar a ouvir a gravação , deitar numa cama ou sentar-se em uma cadeira confortável ; se as roupas passadas ele aflójesela . Certifique-se de que não há distrações ou interrupções . Tire os sapatos , óculos ou lentes de contato. Relaxe completamente . Não cruze as pernas. Se a música acalma , você pode colocar um fundo musical suave . Alternativamente, você pode ter um amigo que você ler o texto em vez de usar a gravação. Exercício de relaxamento profundo extraído do livro "Meditanto com Brian Weiss", de Brian Weiss. O dublador é Márcio Seixas (também conhecido como o Batman nos desenhos do próprio e da Liga da Justiça). Recomendo que você o escute pela primeira vez com os olhos abertos para "sentir" do que se trata. Depois, caso ele tenha te agradado, feche os olhos e apenas se permita passar pelos 27 minutos de relaxamento que o exercício propõe. Não é hipnose, é relaxamento profundo. Você terá plena consciência do que está ocorrendo (na hipnose, você literalmente "apaga" e o hipnotizador decide se você se lembrará ou não do que ocorreu). Escolha um local e um horário onde você não será incomodado(a) durante os 27 minutos de duração do exercício. Fique com os olhos fechados e, se desejar, faça-o deitado(a) (se bem que aí você corre o sério risco de dormir) ou sentado(a) confortavelmente numa cadeira com os dois pés nos chão e as duas mãos sobre suas coxas. Eu costumo fazê-lo deitado e geralmente caio no sono. Às vezes é um sono consciente, às vezes não, mas eu sempre acordo perto do final, quando ele pede para acordarmos.

15 Amazing Vintage Photographs That Show the Dangers of Constructing the Empire State Building: The Empire State Building is an iconic office building known as "the Most Famous Skyscraper in the World." Built during the Depression between 1930 and 1931, the Empire State Building became the world's tallest office building until 1967. The design of the building changed 16 times during planning and construction, but 3,000 workers completed the building's construction in record time: one year and 45 days, including Sundays and holidays. The Empire State's construction work and its workers were a magnet for press and magazine photographers, which is how many iconic images of the construction work were created, like these. 1. Sep, 13. 1930. Carl Russell waves to his co-workers on the structural work of the 88th floor of the new Empire State Building. 2. Sept. 29, 1930. Flirting with danger is just routine work for the steel workers arranging the steel frame for the Empire State Building, which will be the world's tallest structure when completed. 3. Sept. 29, 1930. 4. Sept. 29, 1930. 5. Sept. 29, 1930. 6. Sept. 29, 1930. An odd photographic trick placed this steelworker's finger on the lofty pinnacle of the Chrysler Building. This view was taken from the Empire State Building, the world's tallest building, which is now rising on the site of the old Waldorf-Astoria in New York City. A mooring mast for dirigibles will cap this 1,284-foot structure. 7. Oct. 29, 1930. A construction worker hangs from an industrial crane during the construction of the Empire State Building. 8. Jan. 26, 1932. It may be painful for the ant-like spectators in the street below, but it's all in a day's work for these smiling window washers as they go about their precarious work cleaning up the Empire State Building, world's tallest structure, at dizzy heights of hundreds of feet above the street. 9. Jan. 26, 1932. The startling 'shot' was made by the photographer looking down upon the window washers on the 34th street side of the world-famed building. Note the tiny insects that are motor cars and pedestrians. 10. Dec. 2, 1932. A striking silhouette atop the gigantic RCA Building in Rockefeller Center, New York, as workmen light their cigarettes at the end of a working day. The Empire State Building rises dramatically in the background. 11. Mar. 24, 1936. An unusual picture of one of the intrepid window washers working on the Empire State Building, as he pauses in his task to draw a lung-full of clean air at his height. With the oncoming of the warmer weather our skyscrapers begin to look like giant ant-hills as these washers clamber over the faces of the structures calmly doing their nerve-tingling work. Or maybe the fellow pictured here is just issuing an invitation to the cameraman to come a little closer. 12. Sept. 19, 1930. Workmen at the new Empire State building that is being erected on the site of the old Waldorf Astoria Hotel at 34th Street and 5th Avenue. in New York, by a corporation headed by the former Governor Al Smith, raised a flag on the 88th story of the great building, 1,048 feet above the street. The flag thus is at the highest point in the city higher then the Crystler Building. Photo shows the workmen at the ceremonies. 13. Sept. 29, 1930. Erected on the site of the old Waldorf Astoria, this building will rise 1,284 feet into the air. A zeppelin mooring mast will cap this engineering feat. 14. July 30, 1945. Workmen erect scaffolding on the 33rd Street Side of the Empire State Building as reconstruction work on the skyscraper begins. In spite of the damage the structure suffered when a B-25 crashed between the 78th and 79th stories, the world's tallest building was open today (July 30th), two days after the tragic accident. 15. Feb. 28, 1956. Workmen place one of the new beacon lights in position on the 90th floor of an impressive electronic crown in the form of four far-reaching night beacons. Combined, the four Empire State Night lights will generate almost two billion candle power of light and will be the brightest continuous source of man-made light in the world. Engineers say the beacons can be seen from as far as 300 miles. Cost of the installation is $250,000. Labels: 1930s, architecture & construction, life, New York, worker

Here Are The Highly Surprising Rules That Pirates Actually Used To Live By: By and large, the modern person doesn’t live a very thrilling life. They go to work, they go home, they sleep the weekend away, and then they start the whole cycle all over again on Monday. But things weren’t always that way. Back in as early as the 16th century, pirates roamed the high seas, robbing and plundering with zestful abandon. For a pirate, every single day was an adventure and every day could be their last. Having an adventurous life didn’t mean that they were lawless, however. Pirates lived by a very serious code and when you see what they wouldn’t stand for, you’ll be super surprised. 1. Rank has its privileges: Any time a group of pirates returned from plundering some scallawags, all of the loot (or booty, if you will) was collected and counted. Once a total was recorded it would be divided and distributed to the men. The size of their portion was directly determined by the rank they held on the vessel. 2. One man, one vote: Every man regardless of their rank on the ship, got a vote of “affairs of the moment” and that included the appointment of the ship’s officers. Once the votes were counted, that was that. That didn’t mean the ship was a democracy when it came to punishment, though. The captain determined that sort of thing. 3. Food and drink for all: When you’re at sea, rations of food and water are critical. That’s why, according to the pirate code, any and all food and water were divided up equally between the men. This also went for any alcohol they found, because if there was one thing they valued more than staying alive, it was staying drunk. 4. Theft is punishable by death or marooning: Once a ship had been successfully plundered, the men were allowed to take any and all personal items they liked from the ship. However, anything like gold or jewelry had to go into the common pot. Get caught slipping something shiny in your pocket and prepare to pay the price. 5. No fighting allowed: Fighting among pirates was strictly forbidden while you were on the ship. Violate this, and get 40 lashes courtesy of the captain. Most disputes between pirates were settled once they got to shore where swords and guns were fair play. 6. Keep your arms ready: Just because you weren’t allowed to fight with each other on board, that didn’t mean that there was no fighting in a pirate’s life. Thanks to their frequent attacks on unsuspecting vessels, every pirate was expected to have a cleaned and loaded pistol at the ready in addition to a well-sharpened blade. 7. Workmen’s compensation: If you lost a limb while doing your pirate duty you would be compensated with 800 pieces of “eight.” At the time, a piece of eight was worth 1/8th of a dollar. That makes $100 for losing a leg or an arm. Accounting for inflation, that is about $2,954.77, so… still not a lot for the loss of a body part. 8. No sex on board: It didn’t matter if women or men were your partners of choice, you were not allowed to sneak people onto the ship for the purposes of engaging in coitus. If you were caught doing so, your punishment would be left up to the Captain. 9. Everybody fights: While fighting with other crew members was frowned upon, when the pirates went into battle, everyone fought. If you didn’t and were deemed cowardly, the crew voted on your punishment, which ranged from losing your share of the next pot of treasure to death. 10. No gambling: While we often think of pirates as being passionate gamblers, none was allowed on the ship itself. Any and all games of cards and dice were reserved for the times when they got off the boat and had a chance to spend the money they had worked so hard to earn.

11 Amazing Portraits of the Most Notorious Prostitutes and Madams of the 19th Century Wild West: Prostitutes – or ‘soiled doves’ and ‘sportin’ women’ as they were commonly known -were a fixture in western American towns and cities in the 19th century. Almost without exception, pioneer mining camps, boomtowns and whistles-stops became home to at least one or two hookers – if not a roaring red light district. These fascinating images show some of the most famous scarlet women of the time, who would go on to become millionaires, national heroes and outlaws. Prostitution contributed heavily to town economies in the way of business licenses, fees and fines. A number of red light districts evolved into the social centres of their communities. Although prostitution was largely illegal, brothels were no secret in the old west. Visitors could easily find disorderly houses by opening up the local or state-wide directories, such as the 1895 Travellers’ Guide of Colorado. 1. Mary Katharine Haroney, left, was better known as Big Nose Kate, aged 15, pictured with younger sister Wilhelmina, right, in 1865. 2. Mattie Silks, who became one the best known madams in the west, having brothels in Kansas and Colorado where demand for women was high due to the gold rushes. 3.

La conciencia es el primer paso hacia la curación o el cambio. Cuando llevamos algún modelo mental profundamente sepultado en nuestro interior, para poder curarnos debemos empezar por tomar conciencia de ello. Quizás hablemos al respecto con alguien, o veamos aparecer el mismo modelo mental en otras personas. De una manera o de otra, emerge a la superficie, nos llama la atención y empezamos a tener alguna relación con ello. Con frecuencia, atraemos hacia nosotros a un maestro, un amigo, una clase, un seminario o un libro que comienza a sugerirnos maneras nuevas de abordar la disolución del problema.

20 Rare Vintage Photos of Christmas from the Victorian Era: It's hard to imagine now, but at the beginning of the 19th century Christmas was hardly celebrated. Many businesses did not even consider it a holiday. However by the end of the century it had become the biggest annual celebration and took on the form that we recognize today. The transformation happened quickly, and came from all sectors of society. Many attribute the change to Queen Victoria, and it was her marriage to the German-born Prince Albert that introduced some of the most prominent aspects of Christmas. In 1848 the Illustrated London News published a drawing of the royal family celebrating around a decorated Christmas tree, a tradition that was reminiscent of Prince Albert's childhood in Germany. Soon every home in Britain had a tree bedecked with candles, sweets, fruit, homemade decorations and small gifts. 1. A family’s Christmas, 1897. 2. The Night Before Christmas, 1898. 3.
