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.

CARRYING BABIES AROUND SOOTHES THEM BECAUSE IT LOWERS THEIR HEARTBEAT

Most mothers know this if you've ever had a fractious baby, they cry in their prams or buggy but as soon as you carry them they calm down, rocking and movement has the same effect. When my daughters were babies I carried them everywhere in a sling and carried on vacuuming etc and they loved it, works on my baby grand daughter too although shes now 22 months and a bit heavy to carry everywhere if I pick her up and walk round with her it soothes her and if I sing to her she generally falls asleep, in fact she asks for me to pick her up and sing to her. (generally when she's feeling tired) I suppose babies just know what soothes them and makes them feel calm, I never believed it was spoiling them, it makes them feel secure and loved and gives them the stability they need. They do grow out of it eventually as they become independent and start exploring the world.


Why DO babies calm down when they're picked up and carried? Because it lowers their heartbeat, say scientists

  • When babies are picked up and carried, their heart rate slows and they 'automatically and deeply' relax
  • But this doesn't happen when they are simply held
The mystery of why a baby is soothed by being picked up has been unraveled by Japanese scientists.
New research not only confirms that babies deeply relax when they are carried, but goes on to explain the physiological processes at work.
An instinct hardwired by evolution causes crying babies to calm down when transported in their mothers' arms.

They say that when babies are picked up and carried, their heart rate slows and they 'automatically and deeply' relax.
But this doesn't happen when they are simply held, the study found.
The scientists behind the work say their study is the first to demonstrate that the a baby's response to being carried is a coordinated set of nervous, motor and cardiac regulations.
The findings, published in the journal Current Biology, could help parents who have trouble pacifying their babies, claim the scientists.
'This infant response reduces the maternal burden of carrying and is beneficial for both the mother and the infant,' said lead scientist Dr Kumi Kuroda, from the Riken Brain Science Institute in Japan.
The researchers believe the calming response is a survival trait preserved by evolution in many mammals, including lions and squirrels.
But the calming effect doesn't happen when babies are simply held

The research involved measuring electrical brain activity in both human babies and mouse pups.
When infant mice are carried by their mothers, they adopt a characteristic compact posture with limbs flexed and stop emitting high pitched squeaks.
In mice, the calming response was dependent on the sense of touch and the ability to perceive body movement.
The findings may have important implications for parenting, say the scientists.
'Such proper understanding of infants would reduce the frustration of parents and be beneficial, because unsoothable crying is a major risk for child abuse,' said Dr Kuroda.
The study authors wrote: 'Although our study was done on mothers, we believe that this is not specific to mums and can be used by any primary caregiver.'

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.
