This Man Left Society To Live In A Cave For 25 Years. What He Created Will Give You Chills

Ra Paulette is a sculptor based out of Northern New Mexico. What makes Paulette’s sculpting so amazing is the media he uses and the manner he manipulates it. Using nothing but hand tools, he not only carves but creates caves in the New Mexican wilderness.



These enormous murals and engravings are a beautiful testament to a man’s pleasure in marking the world around him. Some of these projects have taken him years to get them to where they are. He uses no powered tools, so the going is slow but the detail is astonishing. He creates hillside images inside the caves (some of which he deepened and practically created),  with no formal training in sculpting, structural engineering, or architecture.

‘It has a lot to do with the juxtaposition of opposites: the sense of being underground with the light streaming in; the intimacy of being in a cave, yet the columns end up very large, sometimes thirty to forty feet high,’  Paulette describes.


The almost seventy year old man shares that he doesn’t see himself as an artist. ‘He’s simply a man expressing his sense of wonder in a passionate way.’ Once the world keyed into how he was expressing his wonder, it was apparent that his sense of wonder is easily shared. A filmmaker, Jeffery Karoff, heard of this man and his dog quietly changing the New Mexican caves and ventured ou to meet him. Karoff followed Paulette for three years in the making of Cave Digger.  Movie was nominated and won various awards, it was even nominated for an Oscar.

3 Tools To Decalcify And Open Your Pineal Gland

The pineal gland is a hormonal gland in the deep recesses of your brain. This pea sized organ has a big effect not only on your body but your spirit as well. The brain has many secret abilities and processes. The pineal gland is found in every vertebrate animal on the planet. The chemicals produced by it are the common denominator for all higher life forms. To maximize the pineal gland and the surrounding grey matter is to take yourself away from the basic instincts of life and delve into the mysteries and powers of the human condition.


ayahuasca-goddessThe Ayahuasca vine mixed with the leaves of the Chakruna bush, makes a sacred tea. This concoction is considered to be the pinnacle of herbal medicine out of the Amazon. There are thousands if not millions of first hand accounts stating profound healing on psychological, emotional, spiritual and physical levels.

Neurologically speaking, the chemicals of this tea cleans out every synaptic chain and neural cell in the brain. As it runs through, removing build up, it simultaneously activates and stimulates the brain’s pituitary system, hypothalamus and pineal gland. This process is called methylation.

A variety of of synthetic chemicals and toxins (fluoride and heavy metals being the most prevalent) are readily lodged in the fatty tissue of the brain, effectively blocking neural synaptic firing and disrupting the brain’s natural electromagnetic flow. With over 44,000 toxic chemicals introduced into the every man’s environment since the industrial revolution, we could all use a good brain scrubbing. 

If you don’t have access to or don’t care for Ayahausca there are alternatives that can provide similar benefits. Various beets and Goji berries have an abundance of methyl-donors.


meditationMeditation is a powerful tool in virtually every capacity. The wild formations of the natural mind are tamed and energy that would normally go to unproductive means, are willfully diverted to love, compassion and strength.

The mind is an instrument of action. It is always grasping, probing, understanding, and creating. Meditation is a manner of calming the mind, our sense of self. With out proper rest the mind would continue to race, becoming more fatigued. A fatigued organ isn’t a useful organ.

As the intention and discipline from our minds in the abstract sense, the effects can be seen physically.

Many studies have shown the physiological changes the mind under goes through meditative practice. As you will it, the body reacts to unconscious desires. The body is constantly reacting to our moods and desires to be best suited to achieving our goals.


what happens to your body when fasting

Fasting has been longed used to achieve many spiritual goals. We consume parts of your planet to lengthen our stay on it. If you stop physically consuming things around you, your spirit becomes free and untangled in the world around you. History has shown us that fasting can improve mental clarity, bring focus to our spirit, and rejuvenate the body.

The cycle of eating is non stop. Our digestive systems are in constant use, always playing catch up. This constant energy burning and creation never gives our bodies the physical focus to heal. When you stop eating for a period in time, all the energy that was used in digestion is now available for other efforts.

The detoxifying element to fasting is tremendous. Without new toxins being introduced into your system, your body is free to take care of what is already present. The body will burn away heavy metals, toxins, viruses, fluoride and various other unwanted build up.


These 4 Science-Based Rituals Will Help You Live A Happier Life

Life can get chaotic fairly often.  It seems we find balance specifically to have it disrupted. This is true in a way and doesn’t warrant any negative response. With out the chaos how could we appreciate peace? Here are four rituals or practices that are guaranteed to help you hold on to your sanity!

Practice Gratitude

Setting the practice of gratitude is rewarding and very revealing about your priorities. Starting your practice is as easy as making a list of elements in your life. Try to write ten or fifteen things your grateful for one day and add to the list the next day by ten or so. At the end of the week look at your list and recognize how these things effected you this week.

Create Intentions

I do this everyday, sometimes multiple times a day. When you wake in the morning,  whether you lay in bed wiggling your toes in glee or regretting your decisions from the night before, or even bracing yourself for the day to come, set an intention. It can be whatever you like and applicable to any situation. I like to keep my first intention of the day fairly broad, ‘To accept all things as a sign of love’. As my day gets more trying I may before a stressful meeting say to myself, ‘I will exhibit all sides of myself and love myself for it’. I try and broaden my focus with every intention.

Embrace And Love Those Around You

Love is the most powerful and productive energy available. If you are having trouble loving yourself spoil someone else! Nurturing love towards someone is the similar to loving yourself. It is such an infectious energy that once you start nourishing it, the effect will ripple out in beautiful and surprising ways. As you strive to actively love those around you you will learn volumes about yourself and others. This will lead to more natural avenues of love and compassion. Thich Nhat Hanh, A Buddhist spiritual leader, says it perfectly,

‘Love is the capacity to take care, to protect, to nourish. If you are not capable of generating that kind of energy toward yourself- if you are not capable of taking care of yourself, of nourishing yourself, of protecting yourself- it is very difficult to take care of another person. In the Buddhist teaching, it’s clear that to love oneself is the foundation of the love of other people. Love is a practice. Love is truly a practice.’ 

Label Negative Thoughts

This practice is crucial to ending the vicious cycles we put our selves through. The ability to acknowledge a thought for what it is isn’t enough. You must develop the skills to accept it, forgive yourself for any subsequent negative emotions and release the thought back into your mind. It’s important to not try to fight whatever your mind is doing. This will only give the unwanted formation more energy and focus. The key is to lovingly rise above it.

Harvard Studies: Meditation Literally Changes Your Brain

Many studies have been done to diagnose the physiological changes in humans during meditation. None have been this comprehensive or had detailed information about a before and after. Sara Lazar, senior author at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Psychiatric Neuroimaging Research Program and instructor of psychology at Harvard Medical School, has done studies on meditation before. They found that first time practitioner’s cerebral cortex’s thickened in the areas associated with attention and emotional integration. Those studies were not sufficient to say the changes were from meditations.

 “This study demonstrates that changes in brain structure may underlie some of these reported improvements and that people are not just feeling better because they are spending time relaxing,” Lazar reports.

This study took  sixteen participants with no serious history of regimented or consistent meditative practice. The participants answered questionnaires and submitted to have magnetic resonance images (MRI) taken of their brains two weeks before and after they took part in a meditation program. The University of Massachusetts Center for Mindfulness accepted the participants in an eight week long Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program.

The program focuses on nonjudgmental awareness of sensations, feelings and state of mind. Participants attended a weekly guided group meditation session and were given audio recordings for independent guided sessions. They were asked to keep track of the amount of time and frequency of their independent meditations. There was also a control group of non meditators that had MRI’s over the same schedule.

Meditation group patients reported spending an average of twenty seven minutes every day. When the final results were jotted down it became obvious meditation had a profound effect on the physiology of the brain and consciousness. The post questionnaires showed marked improvement in every area for every participant.

MRI’s showed that grey matter density had increased in the hippo campus. The hippo campus has a strong role in learning and memory. There were various improvements to neurological structures associated with self awareness, compassion, and introspection.

The participants all reported significant reductions in stress, which correlated well with a decrease in the density of the amygdala, which plays a large role in stress and anxiety. The control group showed none of these improvements, showing that these changes were not from the passage of time.

 “These results shed light on the mechanisms of action of mindfulness-based training. They demonstrate that the first-person experience of stress can not only be reduced with an eight-week mindfulness training program but that this experiential change corresponds with structural changes in the amygdala, a finding that opens doors to many possibilities for further research on MBSR’s potential to protect against stress-related disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder,” says Amishi Jha, a neuro scientist at the University of Miami.

3 Strong Signs We’re Being Visited By Extraterrestrials

Since man started to understand the basic concepts of space, (what stars are, that there are other planets and what conditions on them are like) we have been free to wonder if there is other sentient life out there. YouGov, a market research company, recently polled Germany, America and Britain. They asked if people believed in intelligent alien life and more than half of the participants said yes in every country (in Germany 56% of people believe in ET existence, in America 54% believe, and Britain 52%). Around one third to a quarter of the populations surveyed nations did not believe in the existence of extra terrestrial life at all.

Here is a little information to spark conversations with people who don’t believe in the potential of life elsewhere in the universe. People who do believe, will undoubtedly find some of this information entertaining and useful. To be clear this article is not attempting to support any conspiracy theories specifically, this is written in the spirit of persuading readers to acknowledge the possibilities of the infinite universe.

The Universe Is Infinite And Not Understood

shutterstock_88231261Given our advancements in astronomy and space exploration, we have learned in leaps and bounds. Sadly this doesn’t amount to much. We have only explored less than one tenth of your own backyard. We can speculate and wonder all day but in the end we don’t know much about the simple content of you galaxy let alone the universe.

Consider this we had many questions about the bottom of the ocean for decades. This environment is on our planet and is effected my few factors than that of space. Some of our theories were correct and others were wrong. But we din’t even realize what questions to ask. There were and still are many surprises no one saw coming. Space is infinitely larger and has more variables of influence, many of which we haven’t been able to witness first hand. We just now witnessed black holes and gravitational waves.

It would be ignorant to say something doesn’t exist when we see no conclusive evidence pointing either way.

Whistle Blowers

There have been a handful of scientists and other credited specialists that have stepped away from certain organizations to say some pretty amazing things. Amogngthem Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden and Julian Assange are the most notable but hundreds of professionals have come forward. These aren’t publicity chasers, most are respected scientists with advancing careers.

Paul Hellyer, is the former Canadian Defense Minister, is responsible for combining the Canadian Air Force, Army, and Navy into one united force, now known as the Canadian Forces. This man came forward with some fairly remarkable information.

“Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about where we were headed and offered to help. But instead, we, or at least some of us, interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after… . Trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on projects about which both the Congress and the Commander in Chief have been kept deliberately in the dark.”

There is very little reason this gentleman and others like him would say things like this for selfish reasons. Many careers and lives have been ruined over certain information spilled.

Anomalous Evidence Throughout History

Through out history there are cave drawings, wall inscriptions, oral stories and paintings from almost every era that are unexplained to this day. Cavemen drew people with out certain human features coming from the sky in round shapes. There are Renaissance paintings in which there are floating objects in the sky. News clippings from around the world detailing strange lights in the sky. The fact that the occurrences have remained so consistent over the thousands of years should be of interest to anyone.

The 6 Most Common Traits Of Old Souls

‘Old Souls’ are a special kind of being that their physical age doesn’t match their emotional or spiritual depth. Old souls have normally gone through some of life’s more unexpected trends. They go through life with a wary eye but a deeply cheering smile. You can recognize an old soul by their eyes, there is always a depth that makes you think of something sad. They have distinctive behavioral patterns, which are detailed below.

Fitting In May Be Difficult

You can understand the people around you and feel a connection but it only seems to go so far. Even the most basic of individuals have a rough time of connecting with the people around them. While your physical and spiritual age don’t line up this puts you in an even more unrelatable space. Don’t stop trying to connect to everyone around you! Remember that social interactions done correctly benefit both people greatly.

You Crave Knowledge And Wisdom

You are always want to know more, always striving to understand more details. You understand that knowledge is power, not only over the world around you but yourself. Your search of knowledge has a tendency of taking a life of its own. It isn’t unheard of for an old soul to spend countless hours researching topics of interest.

You Tend To Not Get Along With Those Your Age

One of the characteristics of an old soul is that your physical age and your spiritual age don’t line up. Your life experiences have left you with a more through understanding of the world around you and yourself. Don’t undervalue the people your age though. They have the same capacity for wisdom you do, they only need to develop it.

You Have No Problem Spending Time Alone

This is one of the most prominent traits of old souls. You have learned to be comfortable with the voices in your head. Self sustainability and independence run deeply in your core. While it is great that you can spend time by yourself and grow in that experience more than most, it is important that you don’t isolate those around you.

You’d Rather Spend Time In Nature Than Anywhere Else

If given the option of a stroll through a city or a walk through the woods,you would choose the more natural option every time. Nature’s simple and complex elements fascinate you and bring you comfort. It’s simplicity and finality of actions serve a fitting  metaphor to your own personality.

You Find Meaning In Life

Everyone is searching for meaning behind the elements in our life. You can recognize your personal truths out of the din of chaos in life. By this I mean that, you are able to live life on life’s terms. You are able to take the random and seemingly nonsensical parts of life and take them as they are.
