WE NEED MORE LOVE IN OUR COMMUNITIES.
The Goal of African American Matchmaking: To Help You Find a Loving Relationship!
Picture yourself in a loving relationship.
You first separate yourself from the body; then you identify yourself with the mind, and then you function on the mental plane, with this fine body just as you do on this physical plane.
Through concentration, you rise above the body-consciousness; through meditation, you rise above mind; and finally through Samadhi, you realize your spiritual nature.
These are three important exercises of Antaranga sadhana in the achievements of Kaivalya, the final beautitude. You can, by mere willing alone, travel to any place you like with the astral body and there materialize by drawing the necessary elements either from Ahankara or the universal storehouse, the ocean of Tanmatras.
The process is very, very simple to occultists and Yogis who know the rationale, the detailed technique of the various operations.
When we get used to something or someone, we tend to focus attention on other things. This can be natural and biological. Because our senses have become accustomed or desensitized to the lack of newness, we can walk right by it like a piece of furniture. Do you sometimes feel like a piece of furniture?
As evolved human beings, we need to be conscious of the need to pay attention when we are with someone significant to us. There are subtleties and nuances to each of our lives and due to the time continuum and the biology of how the cells in our body regenerate, we are never truly the same exact person tomorrow.
When your partner fails to see you, it does not automatically mean that s/he doesn’t care. However, it is slippery slope toward being taken for granted. Most of us want a mate that cares enough to notice us. Here are 5 ways to tell if your mate is truly seeing you:
- You receive compliments that are specific about your appearance, especially something new such as a hairstyle, piece of clothing, jewelry, etc.
- Your partner notices when your emotional well-being shifts and asks questions out of concern.
- When you are touched, the touch goes deeper than the superficial; there is warmth, recognition, and healing.
- You receive positive attention from your partner at various points throughout the day and week, despite being “busy.”
- Your partner can describe your job, dreams, and highest aspirations.
Have you ever wondered…?
The third eye (also known as the inner eye) is a mystical and esoteric concept referring to a speculative invisible eye which provides perception beyond ordinary sight. In certain dharmic spiritual traditions such as Hinduism, the third eye refers to the ajna, or brow, chakra. In Theosophy, it is related to the pineal gland. The third eye refers to the gate that leads to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness.
In New Age spirituality, the third eye often symbolizes a state of enlightenment or the evocation of mental images having deeply personal spiritual or psychological significance. The third eye is often associated with religious visions, clairvoyance, the ability to observe chakras and auras, precognition, and out-of-body experiences. People who are claimed to have the capacity to utilize their third eyes are sometimes known as seers.
Your third eye is located between your eyes on the lower part of your forehead. We can all learn to be seers. For dating, you can use your third eye to:
Sense the character and intentions of someone you are interested in.
Everyone radiates a field of energy. These vibrations can be positive (they make you feel good and safe) or negative (there is conflict, a sense of uneasiness, and even sickness). Learning to be a seer means learning to trust your intuition above “rational” thought and being sensitive to your environment. Importantly, it also means responding to who people are, not simply responding to who people say they are. Some questions to ask yourself:
- Is this someone I am really interested in or am I lonely?
- Do I see this person integrated into my life and us both being happy?
- Do I sense longevity and stability with this person?

Health, healing, and happiness, currently a global trend, is a personal commitment to yourself and your community. No matter you’re your age, we could all benefit. Healing is necessary for positive relationships. With our collective history of family separation, enslavement, and disenfranchisement, we are at risk. Whether we know it or not, many of us need to heal from trauma first before we make a long-term, loving commitment to another.
Trauma is a response to a deeply distressing or disturbing experience. By the time we become adults, many of us have experienced multiple traumatic events. When an outside threat is too much to manage, it can affect many areas of our lives.
Trauma is unique to each individual. The type of psychological distress and unhealthy coping behavior can vary. Trauma can be caused by several things happening in our lives related to: family, finances, health, relationships, natural disasters, and other activities, especially those that we feel we can’t control.
Youth are particularly vulnerable to trauma. Adolescence is a time of significant physical and psychological changes, and changing dynamics in family and peer relationships. These changes can have major effects. Trauma can affect physical heath. For example, unresolved trauma as a child can make you sick as an adult.
We can improve our lives by healing. Healing helps you to release the trauma and move on in a positive way. Five easy ways to incorporate healing:
- Spend more time with people who make you feel optimistic
- Use the ocean to cleanse and restore yourself
- Seek help in a supportive environment
- Choose natural foods that nourish both your spirit and your body
- Move your body through dance, exercise, and walking
- People are physically separated or have minimal contact with others.
- People interact on a more personal level i.e. the workplace. There is a familiarity, maybe even some affection, and a common goal they share. This is also experienced in social groups, and community activities.
- There is real bonding and a connectedness that expresses deep love and commitment. That sense of acceptance is what all of us need as young children in order to feel whole. Most of us, however, missed that critical piece from our parents when we were young children and spend a life time yearning for it without identifying it.
