People might tell you you're glowing, but you just feel like you're growing, and perhaps you're not liking—or even recognizing--the changing image you see in the mirror. If you're like most expectant women, you're worried about what pregnancy and motherhood will do to your body, your sexuality, and your self-esteem (even if you don't want to admit it out loud for fear of the Bad Mommy Police). While the journey to motherhood is truly miraculous and brings forth life, it can also bring forth a myriad of legitimate concerns.

- How to deal with your raging hormones—in the bedroom and beyond
- The truth, the lies, and sure-fire fixes for sagging skin, acne, stretch marks, and boobs that continue to defy gravity
- How to recognize when your body issues get extreme—and how to get help
With startling confessions of women's unspoken fears and advice on how to remedy them, this essential compendium of girl-friendly advice will help champion any woman to feel her best about her body, herself, and her role as a mom.
Collapse According To Michael
Michael is a channeled entity of a thousand and fifty souls who have finished their cycles on earth and have chosen to offer teachings from the disembodied plane. One of the chapters in this book describing the arc of civilization gave me such insight into my studies of collapse that I felt compelled to describe it as part of my collapse reading.
Much like Tainter in his Collapse of Complex Systems, Michael describes how the development of reincarnated souls, inevitably leads to overreaching.
To understand how this works, think of human development as a continuous stream of lessons learned from life to life. The first incarnation is very simple with barely enough smarts to survive. As time goes on the soul keeps coming back to learn more and to resolve karma accumulated from past lives. This much we know from Buddhism.
According to Michael, souls reach a point where they have a firm grasp of how to make the best of an incarnated life and are thus ready to glorify and exploit each life to their advantage. This is the Yuppie materialistic level of soul development. Unfortunately, though these souls have a great deal of energy, they have little regard for the mess they might be causing for others and believe that it will all work itself out in the end in a sort of win-win theory of life. They want to see how close to the abyss they can get before flaming everything out.
It is not until the soul reaches the mature level that it becomes frustrated with the mess created by these young souls and feels a need to restore the balance and justice. The United States has had a critical mass of these young souls so we have had a country that has made a general mess of everything in its eagerness to have the most toys. Now that we have a lot more mature souls here, especially on both coasts, there is much angst and conflict with the country we find ourselves in.
Contrast this with a country of baby souls. Baby souls like lots of societal rules so that everything functions harmoniously. Baby souls know that it is important for everyone to pull together and do their duty in order for all to live as pleasantly as possible. Many Asian countries bore these characteristics until very recently. Old soul countries are also similarly mellow, but more out of a desire to just let things go and not get all hot and bothered about things or work too hard. Russia is given as an example.
In the U.S. some of us have now arrived at a recognition of imminent collapse and the contest is on to see if these farseeing mature souls will be able to reclaim some sanity and stop the injustice created by the momentum of the systems put in place by young soul eagerness for efficiency and expedience.
This reincarnation theory of collapse makes the arc of this story much less inevitable than Tainter's version. Given the work of mature souls on existing young soul systems i.e. government regulations, peer pressure, it is quite possible to visualize a shift rather than an inevitable fall. Or, in other words, we are not quite as dumb as yeast eating all the food in a reflex mode. Reading this, I'm inclined to think that the reason apocalypse writers are so obsessed with uncontrolled mayhem on the part of their fellow man is because so many are operating from a young soul mentality influenced by being in male form.
Michael also describes that this shift will involve much more expression of the feminine and the use of intuition as opposed to earlier in history when brawn favored the men. He mentions that many souls will be incarnating in the body they feel least comfortable in. (Could this explain increase in sex changes? Would one contemplate one's life in the astral plane before coming down, and say "well, I could always get a sex change" or is this just a distraction from actual life purpose?)
Michael also divulges another cosmic thesis that will have an impact—what we call Gaia theory. He describes how the planet has a population of souls who have chosen not to incarnate into ensouled bodies, but cluster together to oversee the living breathing planet. Think of them as the planet's devas, much like the veggie growing ones at Findhorn (which Michael also describes). These devas have influence over the physical properties of the planet, such as the weather, the volcanos and the teutonic plates.
In this book he prophecies that California is in big trouble and that those who stay have little strength of will to live, have a death wish or are seeking a wild ride for the thrill of discovering what such events will evoke survival wise. Okay yes, I knew we were a population of extremes. He specifies what regions will see earthquake activity in the late 90s and what kind, all the way up to Oregon. Then after all those predictions (none of which came true…yet) he says that other prophecy sources feel that we have averted disaster because people have changed and become immersed in new consciousness. (All working on that at the time can give
BODIES The exhibition. Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada
Real Human Bodies.
With a name like Bodies in Las Vegas, it's easy to assume you're going to a topless show. But Bodies…The Exhibition at the Luxor is even more revealing.
Bodies will easily trump any science lab dissection you’ve done in school. With an intricate, 3-D vision of the human form, visitors get the chance to see real bodies, preserved along with their inner organs. The exhibit showcases 13 whole-body specimens from China and more than 260 organs and partial body specimens. There are nine rooms dedicated to different parts of the body, including the muscular, nervous, circulatory, respiratory and digestive systems.
There is also a more sensitive section of the exhibition showing fetal development. Guests can see different stages of a baby's development, from eight weeks old to eight months, as well as fetuses with various birth defects, such as conjoined twins. This exhibit is located in its own private area, so those who feel uncomfortable viewing it can skip to the next section.
It is both startling and informative to see so many body parts and inner organs out in the open when they are usually tucked safely away under your skin. One wouldn't expect such an intricate part of the nervous system, like the spinal cord, to resemble a clump of seaweed.The tongue, meanwhile, looks a bit like a small, thick cut of steak (Would you like that medium-rare or well-done?).
One of the more startling sights in the exhibit is the display of a smoker's lung in the respiratory section. Visitors can see and compare a healthy lung to a blackened smoker’s lung. There is also a brain on display here from a person who suffered a stroke -- ironically it looks a bit like the inside of an ashtray. After reading some scary, mind-opening facts (like a single pack of cigarettes takes three hours and 40 minutes off your life), you may think twice about puffing. For the guests' convenience, there is a cigarette disposal bin nearby.
Bodies also offers enrichment that helps visitors improve their quality of life and prevent diseases.
Reading the quick facts on the wall is almost as interesting as checking out the specimens. For instance, did you know if all the muscles in your body worked together, you could lift more than 10 tons? And did you know eating breakfast really does help improve your memory?
More fun facts: Faster than the world’s most powerful computer, the nervous system is responsible for processing all thoughts and emotions. In addition, every drop of blood in the body passes through the heart once per minute. Single visitors will be interested to learn that scent plays a significant role in people’s physical attraction to each other. (Men, even the most expensive cologne won’t help you if she’s not attracted to your “natural” scent!) These are just a few of the fascinating things you’ll discover while walking through the Bodies exhibit.
There are plenty of benches scattered throughout the facility for guests who want to sit down take a break. For those who want an in-depth description about particular displays, audio wands are available for $6. Expert docents can also answer questions. Visitors are encouraged to write their impressions of Bodies in one of several guest books at the end of the exhibition.
As for those who want to take a little piece of Bodies home with them, the gift shop features some a collection of books, incense holders, models, key chains, souvenirs and educational doodads for kids.
