Invasive surgeries, pharmaceuticals and the like are the common ‘go to’ for most people when faced with illness and disease. coque iphone Yet ancient and spiritual procedures provide a less invasive alternative, with surprisingly successful outcomes. John of God is the most famous spiritual healer of the 21st century.

John of God has called Brazil home since birth. Brazil is known for its deep traditions of shamanism and spiritism, both firmly rooted in the belief that souls can cross boundaries between earthly existence and the afterlife. soldes coque iphone It is these very spirits John of God calls “Entities” and he uses them in his healing work. John states: “No physical or mental illness is beyond the possibility of cure… Healing may be physical or spiritual.” “The healing Entities who work through John of God are the spirits of deceased doctors, surgeons, masters and Saints.”, says disciple and scholar Heather Cummings. coque iphone 8 There are two types of treatments offered by John of God. Visible or invisible surgery. The invisible is done through meditation and remote ‘operation’ done by spirit. The visible is done by John actually removing tissues from the body with no anesthetic used other than ‘spiritual’. outlet coque iphone John says that when he does a healing, he has no recollection of anything during the procedure: “I do not cure anybody. God heals, and in his infinite goodness permits the Entities to heal and console my brothers. I am merely an instrument in God’s divine hands.” He leaves his body while the Entities use his body to heal people. They are thought to be the spirits of those who have passed on, who are now dedicated, from the spirit realm, to healing human pain and suffering. coque iphone en ligne John of God’s healings are spiritual. He states: “My mission has nothing to do with religion.” He instead taps into the energies we all possess as members of the human race that connect us all, regardless of religious belief. For the most common, ‘Invisible’ surgeries, John uses what he calls ‘The Current’ – a group of around 400 volunteers that meditate daily at the Casa to help with his healing. These meditators create an electric current, a vibration, similar to a river, that uses the constant flow of healing energy created by selfless disciples to help John heal their fellow human. coque iphone pas cher Despite skeptics, there is evidence that energy healing is a reality and can be powerful.

Deforestation – the loss or destruction of naturally occurring forests primarily due to human activity – is a growing problem throughout the globe with tremendous environmental and economic consequences. Deforestation is primarily created by logging, cutting down trees for fuel, slash-and-burn agriculture, clearing land for livestock grazing, mining operations, oil extraction, dam building and urban sprawl. Logging alone, which in many cases is illegal, accounts for the loss of more than 32 million acres of natural forest every year according to The Nature Conservancy.
To imagine deforestation is quite tricky and to nail its patterns down is quite tricky. We know forests are shrinking, but knowing exactly where and by how much often means compiling locally reported data that can be shoddy, incomplete, or outdated according to University of Maryland geographer Matthew Hansen. Better data would be an invaluable tool for resource managers looking to preserve trees, and for climate scientists who want to crunch how much carbon they can store, Hansen realized. So he set about to create the most high-resolution map of global forests ever made, partnering with Google Earth to process some 650,000 images taken by NASA satellites over the last decade.
In the exclusive video above, Hansen takes us on a tour of his new maps and the startling situation they reveal. “It’s a big leap forward in terms of a set of facts, a set of observations on what this dynamic is,” Hansen said.
One of the next steps, Hansen said, is to use the data to gauge exactly what this deforestation means for climate change. Trees are one of the largest “sinks” for carbon dioxide; previous studies suggest forests absorb a third of the carbon released by burning fossil fuels.
