Aries
Aries people are adventurous and can climb any mountain. They go to extra lengths to get things done and have energy like nothing most of us have ever experienced before. Their only major drawback is their stubbornness.

This is the most powerful zodiac sign by far. They are born leaders and have a dominant personality. They are driven and always get things done. Their word is good and they can move anything in their way. The only downside to this sign is their pride.

This sign is passionate and that makes them able to reach follow their dreams much more easily than most. They are intense and usually fun to be around but can be a bit arrogant from time to time. When it comes to critical thinking there is no better sign for the job.

THIS Tea Cures Strep Throat, Sinus Infections & The Flu

In the world of effective all-natural home remedies, oregano tea is at the top of the list. Oregano tea has been used traditionally for centuries as a treatment for different ailments. It’s made up of several phytonutrients including thymol and rosmarinic acid. These powerful antioxidants work to repair damage to cells throughout the body.

Oregano is part of the mint family. It’s often used in Italian dishes to add flavor. The leaves contain more than 40 different medicinal compounds, many of which are antioxidants that work to protect the cells from free radicals. Oregano has also been found to have antiseptic properties, which help to slow the growth of microorganisms that may harm the body.


Oregano tea can help soothe and heal a sore throat, sinus problems and infections, but that’s not all. According to a study published in the Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, oregano extract may also improve cancer indicators. Researchers found that colon cancer cells slowed their growth and eventually died when exposed to oregano extract. The International Food Journal of Sciences and Nutrition found that drinking oregano tea has such strong antioxidant results that it can also help lower LDL cholesterol levels in the body.

This Is How The Right Person Will Love You

I hope that you end up with someone who loves you back.

I don’t mean someone who likes your figure or the cool new shoes you’ve bought this month.

I hope you find someone who’s genuinely interested in you. Someone who wants to know what your favorite songs are.

I don’t mean the songs that you’ll listen to with a crowd of people at a bonfire but the songs you listen to when you’re driving alone or falling asleep at night.

Someone who wants to know what your favorite books are and will take the time to read them because they want to see what intrigues your mind.

Someone who wants to know about your favorite childhood memory and your favorite hiding place as an adult.

Someone who wants to work out with you and eat a tub of Nutella with you on a Friday night.


Someone who uses words like charming, stunning, delightful, lovely, graceful, lovely, dazzling, radiant, and dashing instead of cute, beautiful, and pretty.

Someone who wants to read every term paper you’ve aced and every journal entry you’ve posted on your blog.

Someone who wants to find all the imperfections on your olive skin and wants to love every blemish and scar they find.

Someone who knows your favorite quotes by heart. Someone who wants to know if you prefer almond milk or fat free milk.

Someone who wants to learn about your past but more so about your future.

I hope you find that someone who wants to know every detail about you.

I hope you find them and you end up with them forever.

8 Types Of Toxic People That Mentally Strong People Avoid

Toxic People Can Sneak Into Your Life And Damage Your Emotional And Mental Well-Being. But Mentally Strong People Know To Avoid These 8 Types At All Costs.

The people we surround ourselves with can influence us in ways we don’t even realise sometimes. There are people who can be spontaneous and inspiring and can lift your spirit; these are the types of individuals we should hang out with. On the other end of the spectrum we have the ones who we even regret becoming acquaintances with- the vile and the abhorrent.

Mentally Strong People Aren’t Perfect, They Have Their Flaws As Well. Toxic Damage Can Come From Any Person And At Any Time. The Idea Is To Steer Clear Of Those That Will Bring You Down With Them.

Below is a list of the types of people we should all try our best to avoid at all costs:

1. Those Who Show-Off

There are some people who seem to have no other purpose in life then to make others jealous or envious of what they have achieved. It’s easy to spot, and is merely an indication of their lack of self-worth.

2. Those That Are Ignorant

There are many different brands of unintelligent behaviour. There is the ever so harmless lack of brain-cell dumb that can’t really be fixed, and the willfully ignorant and self-absorbed kind of dumb.
Some of us may have met someone who is famously incompetent because of their constant sense of self-pride and inability to make the right decisions, or learn from the consequences.

3. The Parasites

We have all been in bad circumstances at some point in our lives. In fact, most of us understand what it’s like to either be that friend who takes the hand-outs or the one who gives them.
If this behaviour starts to be a normal pattern (they don’t have anything and they leave it up to you to provide) it is probably best to put a stop to it before a codependency issue is created.

4. The Not-So Active

Nobody is immune to laziness. Those who sit around doing nothing make others also want to just sit around and do nothing.
Not even those who are considered to be mentally strong are safe from becoming lazy. Spend enough time with a lazy person and you will start feeling a lack of motivation and the need to become immobile.

5. The “I” Specialists

Those who say “I can do…” and ” I have so many… ” are unlikely to actually do these things or anything else for that matter.
“Actions speak louder than words,” we are told. There are those who understand that and do what they say they will do, and there are those who are always talking about doing stuff.

6. Those Who Inaccurately  Refer To Themselves  As “Depressed”

We’re not talking about the clinically depressed who actually need prescribed medication. We’re talking about the ones who behave as if they are depressed, for which there is no medication. The ones who are constantly making up reasons as to why their lives are so crap and that they are so very unlucky.
We all make choices in our life that have consequences which we have the choice to either deal with or not. It is not recommended to hang around with those who cannot face up to their choices.

7. The Ones Who Prefer Not To Go Along For The Ride

If you’re a thrill-seeking adventurist type person, asking your couch-bound introvert friend to go sky-diving probably won’t return the best response.
The people we choose to keep in our immediate circle of friends will direct our paths more than we realize.

8. Those Who Don’t Dream

Everyone has dreams, but what defines the way we live our lives is whether or not we act on those dreams and believe that they can change things for the better.
Those who don’t dream will do their best to convince you that dreams are just silly, pointless dreams.

25 Life Changing Lessons To Learn From Rumi

“Study me as much as you like, you will not know me, for I differ in a hundred ways from what you see me to be. Put yourself behind my eyes and see me as I see myself, for I have chosen to dwell in a place you cannot see.” ~ Rumi

Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī, also known as Rumi, was a 13th-century Persian poet, jurist, theologian, and Sufi mystic who, in my personal opinion, wrote some of the most beautiful and most profound words that were ever written. You won’t believe it how much wisdom and how so much power there is in his words. It’s incredible.


1. Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.


“You were born with potential. You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don’t. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly.”

“You sit here for days saying, This is strange business. You’re the strange business. You have the energy of the sun in you, but you keep knotting it up at the base of your spine. You’re some weird kind of gold that wants to stay melted in the furnace, so you won’t have to become coins.”

“Why should I stay at the bottom of a well when a strong rope is in my hand?”

“Become the sky. Take an axe to the prison wall. Escape.”

“Do you know what you are? You are a manuscript of a divine letter. You are a mirror reflecting a noble face. This universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you are already that.”



2. Your job is to live your life in a way that makes sense to you, not to “them”.


“Start a huge, foolish project, like Noah…it makes absolutely no difference what people think of you.”

3. Never give up on yourself.


“When you go through a hard period, When everything seems to oppose you, … When you feel you cannot even bear one more minute, NEVER GIVE UP! Because it is the time and place that the course will divert!”

“Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.”

“Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.”


4. Ignorance is God’s prison.


“Ignorance is God’s prison. Knowing is God’s palace.”

5. The treasures that can be found outside of you can’t even compare with the treasures that can be found inside of you.


“You wander from room to room Hunting for the diamond necklace That is already around your neck!”

“If you knew yourself for even one moment, if you could just glimpse your most beautiful face, maybe you wouldn’t slumber so deeply in that house of clay. Why not move into your house of joy and shine into every crevice! For you are the secret Treasure-bearer, and always have been. Didn’t you know?”

“Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.”

“Why are you so enchanted by this world, when a mine of gold lies within you?”

“You go from village to village on your horse asking everyone, “Has anyone seen my horse?”

“Don’t knock on any random door like a beggar. Reach your long hand out to another door, beyond where you go on the street, the street where everyone says, “How are you?” and no one says How aren’t you?”

“There is a fountain inside you. Don’t walk around with an empty bucket.”

6. When you let go of who you are, you become who you might be.


“Knock, And He’ll open the door Vanish, And He’ll make you shine like the sun Fall, And He’ll raise you to the heavens Become nothing, And He’ll turn you into everything.”


“Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Destroy your reputation. Be notorious.”

“Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.”

“Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames.”

“Be melting snow. Wash yourself of yourself.”

7. There is something you can do better than anyone else.


“Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.”

“Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone’s soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.”

8. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.


“As you start to walk out on the way, the way appears.”

9. When you commit to something, do it with all your heart.


“Half-heartedness doesn’t reach into majesty. You set out to find God, but then you keep stopping for long periods at mean-spirited roadhouses.”

“When you do things from your soul you feel a river moving in you, a joy. When action come from another section, the feeling disappears.”

“Wherever you are, and whatever you do, be in love.”

10. Good things come to an end so that better things can fall together.


“Do not grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.”

11. The wound is the place where the Light enters you.


“What hurts you, blesses you. Darkness is your candle.”

“Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure.”

“Don’t turn away. Keep your gaze on the bandaged place. That’s where the light enters you.”

“Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life’s search for love and wisdom.”

“You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens.”

12. Do what you love and do it with love.


“Let the beauty we love be what we do.”

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.”

“Be occupied, then, with what you really value and let the thief take something else.”

13. Think less. Feel more.


“Reason is powerless in the expression of Love.”

“Put your thoughts to sleep, do not let them cast a shadow over the moon of your heart. Let go of thinking.”

“Only from the heart can you touch the sky.”

“There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled. There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled. You feel it, don’t you?”

“Be empty of worrying. Think of who created thought! Why do you stay in prison When the door is so wide open?”

14. Love is worth it all.


“Gamble everything for love, if you’re a true human being. If not, leave this gathering.”

“Let the lover be disgraceful, crazy, absentminded. Someone sober will worry about events going badly. Let the lover be.”

15. Appreciate both the good and the bad in your life.


“Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.”

“If you are irritated by every rub, how will you be polished?”

“When someone beats a rug, the blows are not against the rug, but against the dust in it.”

16. You change your world by changing yourself.


“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”

17. We are made of Love and made to Love.


“We are born of love; Love is our mother. “

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

“Through Love all that is bitter will be sweet, Through Love all that is copper will be gold, Through Love all dregs will become wine, through Love all pain will turn to medicine.”

“I have no companion but Love, no beginning, no end, no dawn. The Soul calls from within me: ‘You, ignorant of the way of Love, set Me free.’ “

“That which is false troubles the heart, but truth brings joyous tranquillity.”

18. Your Soul is not of this world, your body is.


“All day I think about it, then at night I say it. Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing? I have no idea. My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.”

“When I die, I shall soar with angels, and when I die to the angels, what I shall become you cannot imagine.”

19. At the Soul level, we are all ONE.


“All religions, all this singing, one song. The differences are just illusion and vanity. The sun’s light looks a little different on this wall than it does on that wall, and a lot different on this other one, but it’s still one light.”

“What shall I say, O Muslims, I know not myself, I am neither a Christian, nor a Jew, nor a Zoroastrian, nor a Muslim.”

“I am neither of the East nor of the West, no boundaries exist within my breast.”

20. Your Soul is more precious than anything.


“You know the value of every article of merchandise, but if you don’t know the value of your own soul, it’s all foolishness.”

21. Choose your life partner wisely.


“Take someone who doesn’t keep score, who’s not looking to be richer, or afraid of losing, who has not the slightest interest even in his own personality: he’s free.”

22. Real love transcends the material plane and no matter if your bodies are apart, your souls will forever be connected.


“Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.”

23. Raise your words, not your voice.


“Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”

24. Silence is the language of God.


“Silence is the language of God, all else is poor translation.”

“Words are a pretext. It is the inner bond that draws one person to another, not words.”

“In Silence there is eloquence. Stop weaving and see how the pattern improves.”

25. Just to be alive is not enough.


“You think you are alive because you breathe air? Shame on you, that you are alive in such a limited way. Don’t be without Love, so you won’t feel dead. Die in Love and stay alive forever.”

7 Tips to Improve Your Eyesight FAST!

Not that long ago, eyesight deterioration and strain was primarily caused by natural aging. Today, however, screens and artificial lights have piled on. 

As a result, eye doctors say that the general rate of vision deterioration is accelerating at an alarming pace. How alarming? Well, 35-year-olds are popping up with the sort of eye damage that was once seen in 75-year-olds. I’ve been wearing glasses for more than 12 years. I know the struggle of dealing with vision loss and I’m sure many of you do too. And while it might seem like there’s nothing that can be done except getting stronger glasses prescriptions every now and again, there actually are ways to combat vision loss and prevent further damage. Check out these 7 exercises!



1. The Pencil Trick

 According to research from the Middle East African Journal of Opthalmology, this exercise is a great alternative to expensive professional eye therapy.
If you wear glasses, take them off. Then, grab a pencil and hold it in front of you at arm’s length. Focus on it with both eyes and slowly begin to move the pencil towards your nose. Stop when it disappears. Repeat this exercise about 10 times daily.

2. Writing On The Wall

This trick comes from expert eye firm Lasik MD.
Sit down in a chair that’s facing a wall. The chair and wall should be several feet apart. Using only the movement of your eyes – don’t adjust your head – trace a word on the wall using your imaginary eye ink. The bigger the letters the better.

3. Sunning

The sunning process harnesses the most powerful thing we can see from Earth – the sun – and converts it into an eyesight-healer.
Head outside on a sunny day and sit facing our good old solar friend. Close your eyes and allow the sunlight to fall directly on your eyelids for about 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes, you should notice that your eyesight is a bit clearer.
Make sure you’re not wearing contacts as you perform this exercise, as the lenses will produce heat that can damage your eyes.

4. Ginkgo Biloba Supplements

Ginkgo biloba is one of the oldest living species of tree on the planet. It has been used for centuries to treat a number of conditions, including vision loss.
Today, researchers know that ginkgo biloba improves eye health by boosting blood circulation and repairing oxidation damage to the body.
You can buy ginkgo biloba in the form of supplements. The standard 120 mg daily dose will repair eyesight just fine.

5. Vitamin E

Vitamin E and your eyes make a pretty good pair. That’s because vitamin E is an antioxidant that can reverse cataracts, the leading cause of blindness in the world.
A great source of vitamin E is almonds. Eat a handful daily. You can also make your very own almond milk with the help of a NutriBullet and David Wolfe through this video!

6. Fennel Seeds

Fennel seeds reduce eye pressure, thereby supporting blood vessel dilation. In the long term, this prevents glaucoma – a condition that results in progressive eye nerve damage.
You can buy fennel seeds here.
Take one cup each of almonds and fennel seeds. Toss them both into your blender and blend into a fine powder. Eat one tablespoon of this powder daily before bed, followed by a glass of warm milk. Do this for a minimum of 40 days.

7. Indian Gooseberry

To use Indian gooseberry for your eyes, you’ll want to turn it into a powder. You can also buy organic Indian gooseberry powder here.
Mix two to four teaspoons of the powder with water and honey. Drink this daily for at least a few months.
