Lindsborg Messiah Festival

The first Messiah Festival in Lindsborg, Kansas, was held in 1882 by a group of Swedish immigrants led by Dr. Carl Swensson and his wife Alma.

A leading member of the 16th-century Flemish school of geography, Ortelius is thought to have been the first to posit what theory about the positioning of the continents?

This Day in History: Donner Party Sets Out on Ill-Fated Journey from Illinois to California (1846)

This Day in History:
Donner Party Sets Out on Ill-Fated Journey from Illinois to California (1846)

The Donner Party was a group of families from Illinois and Iowa that set out for California following a little-used, supposedly shorter, route across Utah. The shortcut only tired and delayed the party, and while recovering at what is now Donner Lake in the Sierra Nevada, the group was trapped by early snow. Many died, several while trying to get help; some reportedly resorted to cannibalism. Rescuers reached the survivors in February 1847. How many of the 87 pioneers survived the ordeal?

Article of the Day: Coelacanths

Article of the Day:

Coelacanths, powerful predators with limb-like fins, appeared about 350 million years ago. Once considered the missing link between fish and tetrapods, they were thought to have become extinct 80 million years ago—until one was caught in 1938 near the southern coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean. They are deep-sea fish with hollow fin spines and average 5 ft (1.5 m) in length and weigh approximately 100 lb (45 kg). How is the coelacanth’s heart different from those of other vertebrates?

5 Mind-Bending Movies Anyone on a Spiritual Journey Should Watch

Sachin Sharma

A thought-provoking movie has the ability to shift our perspective and inspire us to make changes in our lives that we otherwise may not have made.

While some movies only scratch the surface of our psyche, others go straight to the soul and encourage and empower us to integrate the teachings or messages into our daily lives. By being engaged and fully present while watching a movie, you can absorb the underlying message to further open your heart and mind.

While there are many movies out there that have the power to inspire inner change, the following are 5 that will surely empower your spiritual journey:

The Shift: Taking Your Life From Ambition to Meaning(2009)

Dr. Wayne Dyer has influenced millions with his spiritual teachings, and in this movie he highlights why and how to make the shift from ambition to meaning.

He also uses the metaphor of moving from the morning to the afternoon of your life – introduced by the psychologist Carl Jung – which is where everything is driven by purpose. The ‘morning of our lives’ is ego-driven, whereas the afternoon and evening are where we experience the meaning behind interactions and a sense of purpose about our being.

The Shift is perfect for anyone looking for spiritual inspiration. This film will motivate, inspire, and certainly impart a massive and positive shift in your perspective.

This movie is free on YouTube. Watch it here.

The Secret (2006)

The greatest secret of the universe, and the only one we need to manifest what we want, is the Law of Attraction. This popular movie features interviews with scientists, philosophers and leading authors who have all used The Law of Attraction in their own lives to manifest their intentions.

The Secret is a great film for those just starting out on their spiritual journey, or those who are interested in learning more about the Law of Attraction and manifestation.

The Celestine Prophecy(2006)

Based on the best selling bookby the same name, this storyline will rock your world!! Jon is drawn to Peru by a series of synchronistic events, and once he arrives, he discovers the ancient laws of the universe . . . and learns how to activate them in his life.

This movie feels like a continuation of The Secret and through story form, explains the concepts of synchronicity and synchronistic experiences along with the fact that there is something much larger than us at play. And once we tap into this knowledge, we can create a reality based on our desires.

Awake: The Life of Yogananda (2014)

Along the spiritual path, we understand the importance of moving from the mind into the body, and this movie highlights how yoga is not just an exercise for the body – but one of the mind and spirit as well. Awakefollows the life of an infamous yoga guru named Yogananda, who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920’s.

This award-winning documentary features interviews with people who have been influenced by the teachings of Yogananda, such as Deepak Chopra, and highlights his transformational impact on the Western world.

To learn more about Yogananda’s incredible journey and influence on the yoga world, we highly recommend reading his book Autobiography of a Yogi.

The Matrix (1999)

This is a movie that has provoked thought for almost two decades since its release, and still remains a groundbreaking film on the concept of reality and our perception of it. Whilst on the spiritual path we will question many of the day-to-day things we experience.

The Matrix expands on that questioning by asking us what we would do if we found out the reality we know was all artificial. “You are in a prison that you cannot smell, see or touch, it is a prison of the mind.” This quote from the movie invites us to question what mental limitations we have imposed on ourselves.

The Matrix is a must-see if you haven’t already, and it’s a classic to rewatch if you have seen it. Either way, get ready for a total mind-blow that will change the way you view . . . everything.

Walking the spiritual path involves the liberation of the mind from old ways of thinking and encourages the forming of new beliefs and habits that serve our highest potential. These movies can act as a springboard to asking ourselves the right questions to start the process of personal growth and evolution.

Throughout your spiritual journey, it’s important to remember that it is a continual quest for knowledge and that this knowledge can sometimes be found in the perception others have of the world.
