Around six years ago I started to meditate. I had a spiritual awakening, and life started to look really different. I have always been a feeler and reader of emotion, but this was different.

The Tantric path is becoming whole, fully uniting with all of  reality realising the completed perfection of
Heart
Understanding the Secret Frequency of Love The heart does more than pump blood, it started beating before your brain was formed, and it has an electromagnetic field that can be detected across the room.

The 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet is always garnering a lot of attention, and for good reason.
