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.

SIMPLE ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY, THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

Digestion as I mentioned previously begins in the mouth, food is chewed up assisted by the teeth and tongue and mixed with saliva. Saliva helps moisten the food and helps us swallow it, but the enzymes within Saliva, amylase and pytalin break down carbohydrates, which are complex sugars into disaccharides.  This chewed up food is now known as a bolus and is pushed down the oesophagus by the tongue. The oesophagus is a hollow muscular tube commonly known as the gullet. that leads to the stomach. The stomach is a muscular hollow organ that produces hydrochloric acid, to help break down food further and kill bacteria, it also produces Pepsin an enzyme to break down proteins. The stomach's muscular action churns up the food and it is now known as chyme as it passes into the first stage of the small intestine, the Duodenum, it is in the small intestine where the vast majority of digestion takes place.

The accessory digestive organs the pancreas and the liver now assist the process of digestion. The liver produces Bile, this is released and stored in the gallbladder and it is from there it is released into the duodenum its function is to emulsify fats and acts as a deodourant and gives faeces their brown colour. At the same time the pancreas produces digestive enzymes to further break down carbohydrates into simple sugars monosaccharides (amylase, lactase, sucrase) and (trypsin and chymotrypsin) break down proteins into polypeptides. Lipase breaks the fats down into fatty acids. 

As the broken down food continues along the small intestine the lining is covered in small projections known as Villi, these increase the absorbent area and the nutrients from the food are absorbed through those into the blood stream. Obviously its a lot more complex than this as I'm trying to keep this simple. 

The main function of the large intestine is to absorb water from the faeces and any remaining nutrients and the end result faeces is stored in the rectum until voided.

The Liver does have a very important role in the body besides manufacturing Bile as does the Pancreas and that will be explained in another blog.

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.
