5 Books to Help You Be Mindful

5 Books to Help You Be Mindful

In this day and age, it’s easy to lose track of our inner calm, the number of days I find my head actually pounding because I’ve been so focused on something work-related is insane! So, this year I’m working hard to make better decisions for my own personal health.  Some of those decisions are seemingly strange, like my “fashion resolution”. But mindfulness is something that so many of us struggle with.

“Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.” – mindful.org

So, today I want to recommend to you guys some of the best books to help keep you mindful. In addition to them having great thoughts, reading alone is a really great way to stay mindful! In fact, reading has been proven to have positive effects on the body. Reading a book is a better stress reliever than listening to music or taking a walk or a stroll. Sometimes all you need to find your inner calm and achieve mindfulness is through a well written book, and these are well written books that can help take us on the right path.

Conversations That Aren’t Happening But Should Be

Conversations That Aren’t Happening But Should Be

The best thing about friendship is getting to talk about anything and everything with someone you love and trust. I’m lucky enough to find friends I can confide in and talk about anything with. Not just the surface stuff. We can talk days on end without getting bored with each other. Being able to find a friend/friends to have a real conversation with is priceless.

Now I’m one of those people that will say anything I’m thinking. The good, the bad, the uncomfortable. Sometimes it gets me in trouble, but more often than not, my friends will tell me that they were really grateful someone bridged the conversation.

For some reason, we’re taught some topics are either taboo, not polite, or not social acceptable.  But, I’m so tired of people feeling alone in their thoughts because society says we shouldn’t talk about certain topics.

Being comfortable enough to talk about certain topics at least with your friends is important.  It will help you see you’re not alone, help you strategize the next moves of your life and sometimes let you vent.

So, here are some topics you should consider having more conversations about.

Money

Money is often a taboo subject – make a lot and you’re a show off, make a little and you’re pan handling… there’s no way to get completely away from being judged. But talking about money is just as important as talking about work, family and dating. You’ll relate to your friends better, feel understood and actually get some feedback on budgeting, finances, investing, and spending habits that maybe you didn’t have before.

Sex

Women don’t usually kiss and tell and they don’t usually brag about their sexual conquests like some men. But, being open and honest about sex leads to a healthier relationship with your sexuality. And sometimes a little advice from a friend goes a long way.

Your Fears

Your fears are nothing to be ashamed of, everyone has them. It’s what makes us human. Sometimes all you need, is to get it out there.  My family the other day played a game of “what’s your greatest fear” and it was kind of fun to laugh and joke casually about ways we didn’t want to die.  Just because you’re talking about serious topics, doesn’t mean it can’t be lighthearted.

Mental Health

Most Americans struggle with mental health at some point in their life.  Depression, anxiety, “midlife crisis”, we’ve all either been there or known someone who was there.  Talking about mental health issues, whether you have them or not can be a great way to help destigmatize it, which is better for everyone.

Cherish the friends you can have real and deep conversations with.  My philosophy is, “if they can’t handle the real you-all of you, they don’t deserve any of you”.  That can be hard sometimes, because for some people it means giving up every friendship.  But at the end of the day would you rather have the two weirdos who love you or the ten friends that you never connected with?  The choice is yours.

ATM Cave Belize & The Crystal Maiden

ATM Cave Belize & The Crystal Maiden

Actun Tunichil Muknal (The Cave of the Crystal Sepulchre), most commonly known as the ATM cave in Belize, is an archaeological site known to Mayans, as the entrance to hell. Unfortunately, for the many sacrificed in the gigantic limestone cavern, the ATM cave really was the entrance to hell.

The ATM Cave is Located in the Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve. Accessible only by trekking through the jungle, crossing the river twice, and then swimming into the cave itself, there’s little wonder as to why the Mayans thought this was a special place. The limestone cave itself is large and there are several chambers and cavernous spaces, some currently inaccessible.

Venturing into these caverns, you’ll first encounter pottery, ceramics and cave drawings. Items of particular interest that you’ll see include special ceramics marked with “kill holes,” and cave formations carved into the faces of animals and humans.  When your light hits these carvings the shadows bounce off the cave walls displaying grotesque images and making you feel anything but alone. It’s possible the pottery, ceramics and other ritual evidence here in the outer caverns was the first attempt at pleasing the gods.

Speaking of pleasing their gods, the ATM cave was believed to be the entrance to the Mayan underworld- a place filled with scorpions, and running with rivers of blood. The rain god Chac, the death gods and twelve demon deities were said to have lived here and they would inflict chaos, illness, fear, pain and drought upon the Mayans. So scientists believe that in hard times the head elders of the Mayans would make the treacherous journey through the jungle, crossing the river and swimming into the cave caring their offerings in hopes of appeasing the gods.  Sometimes this may have worked, but if it didn’t, they next would try sacrifice of their blood, as evidence by the obsidian blades found in a deeper cavern. If that still didn’t work, they would make the journey again, this time with a human sacrifice.

Journey past the pottery, past the obsidian blades, and you’ll start to discover skeletal remains from the sacrificed. There are many partial skeletons, some seemingly stuffed into small caverns, others scattered throughout the cave, but there are 7 complete skeletons left in the cave.  These skeletons have been in large “cemented” to the floor due to the calcium carbonate crystalizing the bones onto the cave itself. Some of these skeletons have become the focus of scientists and historians.  One such skeleton is that of a male teenager around fifteen years old. What’s unique about him is that he was tied to be sacrificed, clearly indicating that he was not a willing participant. There is also a seven year old, and a toddler.  Both of these youngsters had the alien shaped head that indicated the practice of skull binding.

The Crystal Maiden

Most famous of all though, resting in a cavern known as the “Cathedral” is a skeleton called “The Crystal Maiden”.

The Crystal Maiden is the skeleton of an eighteen-year-old, just one of dozens sacrificed in the AMT cave, yet her death was considered to be more violent than most since two of her vertebrae are completely crushed. While it was common practice to crush the skulls of the scarified, to crush the vertebrae as well suggests abnormal force.  What really makes The Crystal Maiden so famous though is that her bones have not only been “glued” to the cave floor, but they have been completely calcified. This complete calcification has left her bones looking “fat”, textured and a little sparkly.

 

Hauntings

It’s no surprise that with so many sacrifices, the ATM caves are rumored to be haunted by both locals and ghost hunting expeditions. It’s said people see shadows, hear voices and feel wind deep in the cave where wind doesn’t happen.  The ATM caves were featured on an episode of Ghost Hunters International, yet the trip seemed to be a bust.

Visiting

If you want to visit ATM, it is just an hour away San Ignacio, Belize, and another hour walk through the jungle and across shallow rivers. The best way to experience ATM is by hiring a private guide to take you there as early as 7am before you encounter bigger groups. Arrangements for your licensed guide should be made in advance. Inside the cave there are strict rules to follow: No photography, cameras and mobile phones are allowed, backpacks and food are also prohibited.
