This story is not the only one. It is more common in the East because there is an ancient understanding that consciousness does not need to leave the body immediatley upon there being clinical death of the body. The reason why a soul would want to stay within their body (usually for around 7 days but sometimes for weeks or even longer) is because entering what's called thukdam meditation upon death allows them to resolve things that happened in their lives, allowing them to essentially liberate themselves of the baggage like traumas, negative thoughts, etc. that inevitably occur during life on Earth. This allows them to attain full enlightenment, even after death but before going into the void and out into the light where you'd get ready for another go around the wheel of samsara. If you attain full enlightenment during thukdam meditation post-death, you no longer need to keep coming back and can focus on things like becoming a guide for other souls, engaging in the conscious creation of life in all its variations, and taking on other higher-dimensional roles that are too anstract to be into here. Interestingly, you don't need to be a Buddhist monk meditation. for hours a day to enter into thukdam upon physical death. This woman's husband for such a person yet she just chanted mantras and didn't meditate. She did, however, have a tremendous amount of compassion. This goes to show us that maintaining a high vibration through selflessness, service-to-others, and heart-centered thoughts, words, and actions can be far more beneficial to us in terms of becoming fully enlightened than spending all day meditating. https://lifestyle.livemint.com/news/big-story/90-year-old-bengaluru-woman-in-thukdam-or-post-death-meditative-state-surprises-scientists-111608558030064.html #buddhism #meditation #death #news

There are thousands of cryptocurrencies but the #cryptocurrency that I am the most excited about is Nexus. In fact, it caught my eye in 2017 and its ambitious vision of a completely decentralized, yet connected, world got me really hopeful about the prospect of using #blockchain #technology to help liberate humanity. The Nexus team is also the most conscious one I have found in the entire #crypto space. To learn more, take a long at an extensive beginner’s guide to Nexus I wrote: https://www.publish0x.com/paradigm-shifting-cryptocurrency-projects/the-complete-beginner-s-guide-to-nexus-xykgknp

Later today, a series of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) is expected to hit Earth's magnetic field. They were launched in our direction on May 22-23 by flaring sunspot AR2824. Although the CMEs are relatively minor, there are several of them, and their combined impact could spark geomagnetic storms as strong as category G2. High latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras on May 25-26. On May 26th, the full Moon will pass through the shadow of Earth, producing a total lunar eclipse. For 14 and a half minutes, the disk of the Moon will turn orange--the same color as the core of our planet's shadow. The eclipse can be seen from parts of 5 continents: Antarctica, Australia, Asia, North and South America. These two events combined will be affecting anything that emits a magnetic or electromagnetic field, including us. The influx of energy will affect people in different ways, depending on their level of consciousness and what trauma and trapped emotions they have. You can take this as an opportunity to clear out any baggage that's weighing you down from being the best version of yourself. https://spaceweather.com/ #space #cme #lunareclipse #astronomy #fullmoon

Embrace the dips because they are a part of the process. The more you let go of your resistance to them, the faster you will move on from them. In doing so, you can act as a more conscious observer of your life, an observer who does not fear ascension but instead realizes that it is a process. Surrendering to this process allows us to expand with ease and grace as we allow it to unfold for the good of all. https://www.shift.is/2021/05/the-ascension-rollercoaster-how-to-navigate-the-highs-and-lows-of-ascension/ #consciousness #awakening #selfgrowth #spirituality #ascension
