Why Mindfulness Matters

MindTrip Magazine
Mindfulness has become a bit of a buzzword over the last few years.

But just what does being mindful mean and how does it work?

In this guide, you'll learn why being mindful matters and how to practice it.

How to Manipulate Your Friends

Manipulation is generally a bad skill to use to get what you want, but sometimes it's justifiable when you have a noble cause. Perhaps you're trying to get someone to live a healthier lifestyle or enjoy an activity with you.

When other tactics fail you and it's time to resort to a little manipulative behavior, here are some tricks you can use to get what you want without being completely abandoning your ethics.

Nobody enjoys being tricked, so you don't want to use anything you learn in this post for evil purposes. Most of what we're going to discuss is simply a matter of creating a scenario where it's more likely that whoever you're trying to manipulate will be happier and enjoy themselves more.

Sleep Can Bring Life Changing Ideas

MindTrip Magazine
History is peppered with tales of phenomenal ideas taking shape in sleeping minds; Paul McCartney said that he awoke with the tune of Yesterday in his head, and Robert Louis Stevenson said that the idea for The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hydecame to him in a dream.

But what exactly is going on in our minds while we sleep? Does slumber really prompt creative genius? And can the most uncreative of people receive flashes of inspiration once their head hits the pillow?

Scientists believe that the mind at night weaves together bits of information in innovative ways. Throughout the day your brain rarely gets a chance to stop and think. In a state of constant alertness, it responds to a stream of challenges, from writing a report for a work deadline to remembering where you left your car keys and figuring out what to buy for dinner.

Hypnosis or Meditation -- Which Works Better?

Inner Peace
Quite often I am asked, “What’s the difference between meditation and hypnosis?” While meditation and hypnosis can be similar in terms of the process utilized to achieve a relaxed state of mind and body, they differ in terms of the outcome.

Meditation is used to quiet the mind while hypnosis is used to program the mind.

Meditation seeks to quiet the mind and helps create a blank slate where you can release all of your cares and concerns. Meditation helps you recharge and rejuvenate, and it helps you ease stress. Hypnosis does all of those things and it has an even greater purpose: To reprogram the subconscious mind.

Top 15 Self-Help Books for Millennials

I was at an all-time low in my life when I first got into self-help material. I was getting ready to graduate with a BA in political communication and preparing to launch straight into law school shortly thereafter.

The only problem, however, was that going to law school and becoming an attorney was the last God damn thing I wanted to do with my life.

I’d been a good boy growing up. I listened to my mom and dad’s advice about getting good grades, going to law school and securing a “safe job.” It’s about all the good stuff parents want for their kids.

But then, I woke up one day and had quite the realization: At what point did I consciously decide to give 60 percent of my waking, working hours to the field of corporate law?

How to Play The Abraham Hicks Prosperity Game

MindTrip Magazine
The Prosperity Game is a lavish and playful game by Abraham Hicks.

If you're not familiar with the Law of Attraction teachings of Abraham-Hicks, they are a group of non-physical teachers channeled by Esther Hicks filled with Universal wisdom and witty repartee. 

It took a while to wrap my mind around the idea of channeled beings but once I read their teachings, I was hooked for life. Within their teachings, Abraham offers many experiential exercises to help guide you towards awakening and realizing your desires and reduce focus on the unwanted experiences in your life.

The point of the Prosperity Game is to expand our ability to receive and spend wealth, and to direct it with our intention and attention.

Since it's Law of Attraction based, the focus is on raising our vibrational state so that we are in alignment with receiving and spending large sums of money. And in doing so, we awaken more creativity within us.

Happiness Is Free



I don't really care that much whether people listen to me. I used to think, once upon a time as a young lad, that I'd make a name for myself, do something grand and impressive, change the world and all that stuff. I don't care about that anymore.

Now, I'd rather not be famous. The more I've learned, the more I've come to lean toward the conclusion that the best thing in the world is for the world to leave you alone.

There is ultimately nothing to accomplish in life. You don't need to be rich or well-liked or of prestigious social standing. You don't need much of anything to be happy. You just need to focus on being happy, because you can only do one thing at a time in life.

The Matrix is Only 50 Years Away -- Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg
We’ve spent the past decade handing Mark Zuckerberg our cherished memories, beloved photographs and intimate details of our day to day lives.

But that’s not enough for the social media titan: he wants to get inside your brain and access your thoughts directly.

Zuck has hinted that social networks of the future will be powered by telepathy, allowing ordinary people to beam their brainwaves and emotions directly onto the internet.

Amor Fati: The Immense Power of Learning To Love Your Fate

MindTrip Magazine
I have “AMOR FATI” tattooed on the inside of my right forearm. When I went to have it done, after a full year of consideration, the tattoo artist asked me which direction I’d like to have it face.

“Toward me,” I answered.

“Upside down?” he responded looking at me with that face my puppy makes when he hears something unfamiliar.

“Yes, I said. It’s just a reminder to myself and really isn’t meant for anybody other than me.”

“Great choice,” he replied with a knowing smile.

Top 5 Ways to Boost Your Brain Power

Humans have brain plasticity, or neuroplasticity, which is the ability of the brain to change for better or worse at any age.

This flexibility of the brain plays a significant role in the development or decline of our brains, and how our distinct personalities are shaped.

Neural connections can be forged or severed, and gray matter can thicken or shrink. These changes reflect transformations in our abilities.

For example, learning a new skill can wire new neural pathways in our brains, while aging may weaken certain neural pathways that once existed and result in our memories not performing as well as they once did.

Top 10 Visions Of The World In 1000 years

MindTrip Magazine
“What will the world will be like in 1,000 years” seems like an absurd question to even ask, especially since the degree to which the world changes in 100 years is overly ambitious enough to consider.

Yet curious people do wonder, and certain people like Ray Kurzweil (thought by many to be the Thomas Edison of today) spend all their time working to find the answers.
In honor of our 1,000th Toptenz article, Ray is going to take the podium to share with us some of his ideas about the future.

The Soviet Union’s Top Secret Psychotronic Experiments

During the Cold War, both the Soviets and the Americans were conducting some very unorthodox research in an effort to get the upper-hand on each other. 

Such research lead to programs like MKULTRA and the Stargate program in the United States.

Very little has been released about the Soviet’s parapsychology research, which they call Psychotronics

10 Books That Will Blow Your Mind

Reading is incredible. It sparks our imaginations, enhances our critical thinking skills, improves our vocabulary, exercises our brain, and much more.

While our love for reading in general will never die, it does seem that, these days, its popularity has waned significantly.

Whether you’re an adult or a child, reading is definitely a good idea; the key is to find something that interests you. The rest is easy.

The list of books below represents just a few that I’m sure our readers will enjoy, so have a look if you’d like to add something new and exciting to your reading list.


The 40 Day Prosperity Plan

By John Randolph Price, Author of The Abundance Book

Here is a program for realizing abundant prosperity in your life and affairs. According to the mystical Christian principles, on which this program is based, it takes 40 days for consciousness to realize a truth.

A break in practice during the 40 day period will release the energy being built up around the new ideas. Therefore, there must be a definite commitment to faithfully follow this program each and every day for 40 days.

If you miss even one day, start over again and continue until you can go the full period with perfect continuity. Here is the course of action:

The Miserable Way to Live Forever


There is a program being sold online that claims to teach you 5 Ancient Tibetan Yoga moves that will vastly improve your health and possibly help you live longer. Okay, nothing too surprising there.

If you read that book you will discover that the 5 Yoga moves are “borrowed” from a much older book first published in 1939 calledAncient Secrets of the Fountain of Youth by Peter Kelder. Here is a short blurb from the book description to give you a taste of what we are up against.
Legend has it that hidden in the remote reaches of the Himalayan mountains lies a secret that would have saved Ponce de Leon from years of fruitless searching. There, generations of Tibetan monks have passed down a series of exercises with mystical, age-reversing properties. Known as the Tibetan Rites of Rejuvenation or the Five Rites, these once-secret exercises are now available to Westerners in Ancient Secret of the Fountain Of Youth. Peter Kelder’s book begins with an account of his own introduction to the rites by way of Colonel Bradford, a mysterious retired British army officer who learned of the rites while journeying high up in the Himalayas.
I suppose in the 1930s these 5 yoga poses must have seemed wildly exotic to a bunch of British soldiers, but in today’s day and age I’m not sure we can assume that 5 yoga moves will make you live any longer than average.

But anyway, that’s not the point… let’s get to the good stuff.

How to Live Forever

It turns out the the Tibetan Yogis taught the British Colonel a secret method that any man (not sure if this will work for women… sorry ladies) can use to not just live longer, but, literally, live FOREVER!

And the secret is this:

Do Not Ejaculate.
Ever.

You see, whenever a man ejaculates he loses a bit of his life force. Ejaculate regularly and you will die at a normal age like any regular dude who loves sex and masturbation.

But practice abstinence — not just from sex but from all ejaculation — and you will become immortal.

Sounds cool. But who the fuck wants to live without ever ejaculating? Not me… that’s for sure. And that’s why I call this “The Most Miserable Way to Live Forever.”

Good luck guys… and please let me know how it goes.

10 Unusual Ways to Live Longer

Just how much do you want to live a long, long life? You're already eating properly (well, most of the time), you keep fit (when you remember) and you don't smoke, having given up successfully many times. What other lengths are you prepared to go to?

In the past, people tried many different methods to promote their longevity, some more pleasant than others. Did you know, for example, that Taoist sexual practices, if performed correctly, are supposed to confer immortality?

Over the centuries humans have tried to live longer by eating such things as rattlesnakes, caterpillar fungus and bee pollen. They've drunk mercury, tea mushroom extract and colostrum, the first milk of new mothers.

Nowadays we know a lot more about strategies that can really work. Here are some of the more unusual ones.

5 True Stories About The Military’s Paranormal Research

What if I told you that the Department of Defense and the CIA spent four decades researching extrasensory perception and psychokinesis — i.e., bending spoons with your mind?

From the 1950s to the 1990s, the military and intelligence communities investigated psychic phenomena, conducted clandestine missions that relied on subjects believed to have supernatural powers, and competed with the Soviet Union in a psychic arms race.

Is the Illuminati Good or Evil?

Centuries of war, poverty, and hardship pervade the history of the human species. Savageries abound even within the borders of the world’s most developed regions, leading many to wonder if the Illuminati ignores the pain of the downtrodden — or worse, if we are to blame for generations of turmoil. Is the Illuminati good or evil?

Though many believe that the Illuminati wields godlike control over every aspect of this planet and can dictate societal changes on a whim, the reality is far more intricate. The human is not a machine that functions exactly as it is programmed nor is it a slave to be forced into obedience. Every human mind is unique and entirely unduplicated even amongst the billions of others in this universe. Every human mind desires things that are different from the next.

Who’s this book list for? The creative/visionary/big picture thinker who wants to awaken their inner genius.
