I am a great believer in Karma, but just what is it? Karma comes from the Sanskrit and ancient Indian Language with the underlying principal that every deed in our lives will affect our future life. For example, if we treat others badly during our lifetime we will have negative experiences later on in that lifetime or in future lifetimes. Likewise, if we treat others well we will be rewarded by positive experiences.

FRUIT AND VEGETABLES MAKES YOU MORE ATTRACTIVE

The article below is from Yahoo, and this is not new and this has been well known for years, apart from the carotenoids, found in orange and yellow fruit and vegetables, the added minerals and vitamins and especially the anti oxidant vitamins A, C and E can only benefit our skin as these fight free radicals as these facilitate ageing.

Eating more fruit and vegetables can make you more attractive within weeks, by giving your skin a healthy glow, according to a new study.

Researchers from the University of St Andrews say they hope the findings will encourage more people to eat their five-a-day by appealing to their vanity instead of highlighting the health benefits of fruit and vegetables.

The study, published in the journal PLoS One, looked at the effect of eating carotenoids, the orangey-red pigments found in many fruits and vegetables, on skin tone.

Some 35 students were questioned about their fruit and vegetable consumption over a six week period. They were

also told not to use fake tan, make up or sunbeds during this time.

Eating just two extra portions of fruit and vegetables a day created a 'detectable change in skin tone' within the six weeks, the researchers said.

At the same time, the researchers measured how big a change in skin colour needs to occur before it is noticed by others.

Ross Whitehead, a researcher at the school of psychology said: "People who eat more fruit and vegetables have a 'golden' skin tone that looks healthy and attractive.

"Our latest research finds that even small improvements in diet produces visible benefits to skin colour. We were very surprised by how quick the changes were."

The researchers said that larger or more prolonged dietary changes are likely to make the skin look increasingly healthy over time.

Mr Whithead added: "Most of us know we should eat plenty of fruit and veg, yet we are not sufficiently motivated to actually go ahead and eat a healthy diet.

"Government strategies aimed at improving diet typically only offer information about why a healthy diet is good for us. These strategies have, so far, had no real impact on the nation's eating habits.

"We hope that highlighting the rapidly achievable benefits of a healthy diet on our attractiveness will be a stronger incentive for people to eat more healthily. Knowing you are going to look more attractive in a few weeks may be more persuasive than the promise of health benefits later in life."

Professor David Perrett, who worked on the study concluded: "Although skin colour varies markedly across the world, we find similar effects across different cultures - for Asians and Europeans alike a good diet is associated with an attractive skin tone. The message that a good diet improves skin colour could improve health across the globe."

PSYCHIC QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

PSYCHIC QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

IS IT REALLY POSSIBLE TO FORECAST THE FUTURE AND OTHER QUESTIONS?

I am often asked various questions pertaining to the spirit world and various aspects of the psychic, here are some of them: I will in time feature more questions and answers as this webpage evolves

Q. Is a psychic or medium a fortune teller?
A. It may surprise you to know psychics and mediums are not fortune tellers
Q. Is it possible to forecast the future?
A.Well not 100% and this is because of free will.
Q. What is free will?
A. Free will is YOUR right to decide what you want to do about a situation, it is a choice
Q. How does free will affect a situation?
A. Well before we incarnate as Spirit in a human body, we decide on what experiences and challenges that will benefit our spiritual growth. However we are given the choice (free will) as to whether we go through with the experience or challenge. In effect we are allowed to change or mind.
Q. So are you saying we all know what lies before us?
A. Well in a way we all do. Remember we are 'Spirit' in a human body and your spirit does retain a memory but it is deep in our subconscious. This memory is retained deeply for a reason to help us fulfill our experiences and challenges we ourselves chose. However it is also at this deep level so we are not so aware. If you knew what lay before you would you go through with it? Probably not but we still retain this memory deeply and this reflects in our Aura.
Q. So what is the Aura?
A.The aura is The Aura is an electromagnetic field that surrounds living bodies, this includes people, animals, plants and crystals and is composed of several layers that are constantly moving. The Aura links us to whats known as Universal energy i.e. that is all the knowledge in the Universe past, present and future. It is on this aura that psychics are able to tap into and access your past, whats going on in the present and the possible future and I say possible specifically if your goal or desire is dependent on other people, for remember every person involved in a situation has free will.
