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.

WHY DIETING IS DIFFICULT

 I can see why this is foods obviously higher in sugar do produce a sugar surge in the blood as when we have low blood sugar we do crave more, and foods that are higher in fat generally have a nice mouth feel.

However to get over this problem the solution is to eat complex carbohydrates, such as whole meal flour and grains as the body takes longer to break these down and the sugars are released slowly at a steady pace and thus avoids the sugar peaks, highs and lows associated with junk food.

In the food pyramid complex carbs should be at the bottom, i.e. the bulk of our diet should be from complex carbs. These also contain by nature a lot of fibre thus they are filling and provide us with roughage to maintain a healthy gut.

Now we know why diets are difficult: Even if low-calorie food tastes better than junk the brain is still turned off

  • High-calorie foods cause greater brain reactions
  • When people eat, two different brain circuits fire - one in response to flavour and the other to blood sugar
  • The response to blood sugar is stronger so high calorie foods are more satisfying
The brain prefers high-calorie foods even if they taste worse than the low-calorie alternatives, according to new research.
Scientists at Yale University found that calorie-dense foods cause greater responses in the brain than lower calorie foods.
Interestingly, they also discovered that this applies even if the calorie-free food tastes nicer.

Popular Science reported that the researchers discovered that there are two different brain circuits that fire when people eat.
One of the circuits relates to fluctuations in blood sugar levels, while the other one responds based on whether or not we think the food tastes nice.
Dana Small, a Yale University psychologist, told Popular Science: ‘The thing the brain really cares about are the calories.’
The team asked a group of volunteers to try a range of artificially flavoured drinks some of which contained calories and others of which were calorie-free.
Over a period of three weeks, they found that the group grew to prefer the one with calories even thought they could not taste the added calories.
The researchers looked at MRI scans of the volunteers’ brains as they tried the different drinks to try and establish why this happens.
The study found that people prefer high-calorie foods even if they do not know that they contain more calories because the brain detects the sugar content of it
The study found that people prefer high-calorie foods even if they do not know that they contain more calories because the brain detects the sugar content of it
The scans revealed that people’s brain reactions to the drinks were greatest when their blood sugar levels were highest – this brain reaction gives a sense of satisfaction from the food.
In contrast, the brain response was not linked to how much people enjoyed each of the drinks.
Therefore, Ms Small believes that some people who overeat may do so, not because they prefer high-calories foods, but because their blood sugar levels react more strongly than other people’s do.

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.
