According to the official records, herbalist Li Ching-Yuen was born in China in 1677 (although he himself claimed that he was born in 1736). Throughout his long life, he constantly practiced herbalism and martial arts. In 1930, the New York Times newspaper printed an article in which they published official Chinese government documents that were uncovered.
These documents, dating back to 1827, contained official congratulations on Li Ching-Yuen’s 150th birthday. Later documents, dating back to 1877, contained official congratulations on his 200th birthday.

After a hard day of work, I was sitting on my couch with my eyes closed. I decided to meditate, even though I had no clue what would happen. After just fifteen minutes, my mind started to quiet and relax. It was an amazing feeling! I felt as if my heavy and tired body started to lose hold on gravity, and just like dandelion fluff had started to float above a sunlit meadow in a gentle summer breeze. And that was just the beginning.
After a few more minutes, I was absolutely free, relaxed, and the fierce, blazing fire of thoughts in my mind became a low simmer. My body disappeared, and with it the couch I sat on, my room, and my whole house. Everything vanished. Of course, I still knew that I was sitting in a real room – but my mind simply didn’t construct it that way anymore. My body was in bliss, and I enjoyed increased energy, because when the mind relaxes it stops many of the thought processes that otherwise burn through our energy. (95 percent of the time, our mind is just running in a hamster wheel of worries, with no purpose except to expend energy and make us exhausted.)
After I passed through just 20 devoted minutes of meditation, I felt like a new man. But I didn’t just feel that way – I was. Relaxed, calm, aware of the environment and myself, and ready to move mountains. My face was shaped by a sincere smile. My body embraced the effects of meditation, even though my mind, like a dull computer full of software, still couldn’t fully grasp what has just happened. I stood and went to do my work. The effects lasted all day – I felt enormously energetic and fresh-minded. Continue reading How to Own a New Ferrari and Be As Smart As Einstein, Just By Sitting On Your Couch→

Ever since Matt Damon went on national TV and told Jay Leno that using hypnosis was “the greatest decision I ever made in my life” it seems that everyone in Hollywood is now trying hypnosis.
Hyposis isn’t the underground therapy it was 20 years ago… hypnosis is becoming cool!
Everyone from Orlando Bloom to Ellen DeGeneres and even David Beckham have used hypnosis, and the variety of issues they have used it for is as diverse as you could imagine — with David Beckham seeking the private health of a hypnotist for “personal issues”, Orlando using it for weight loss, even Tiger Woods has used hypnosis to help him to get “into the zone” and stay focused when it counts.
So, here is our big list of celebrities and the weird, wacky, and wonderful reasons they have used hypnosis for.
Everyone wants to be healthy, but most people want to indulge too. It’s cool – you’re human. Go for it. Indulge. Cheat. Eat a lot of food. Pig out on a tub of ice cream. Drink a bottle of wine. Do it. It’s fun. (Isn’t peer pressure awesome?)
You don’t need to be perfect to be healthy – you just need to be good. And being good is actually pretty easy and a lot of fun too.
Now, if your goal is to lose thirty pounds, or you want to pack on muscle, or you’re training for a marathon, then the rest of this article does not apply to you. In these situations, you pretty much have to be as perfect as possible. I know it stinks, but you’re the one who wants to look like a professional body builder. Not me. The same is true for people who are sick, obese, and diseased – in those circumstances you need to be perfect too – especially when faced with illness.
But if you’re already relatively healthy and you’re not looking to become the next runway queen, I have good news for you. You can cheat often and everything is going to be just fine.
