Antonio Mendes Patricia Peterson Laureano Crippa Do not get carried away by emotion Ednilson Perdon Palmistry, which seeks to predict the fortunes from the lines, m arks and patterns on the hands, is a very old cultural practice. In the Middle A ges was practiced in India, China and Egypt to detect witches. It was believed t hat certain points of hands indicated even if the person had made a pact with th e devil. By way of hands, accepted to be said as a person was. Its features stan d out in and became known immediately. Stated that creative people had fan-shape d hands and sensitive, the narrow, pointy fingers, that all this reflected in th e way you are and make money. Pure guesswork based on sympathetic magic and intu ition. It is all pre-trial, as this practice has no scientific support. So nothi ng is confirmed. Even that it is possible to find out how to make money or find true love from the lines or signs of hands, also reasons that lead people to be duped. In different cities of the southern region of Santa Catarina, see Gypsies performing this practice harmful to people who pay for the consultation being c arried away by insistence of those who do. It is the desire to know the future t hat worries people of different faiths and financial situations, making them suf fer in the search for magic solutions to their various problems, which in most c ases, are imposed by circumstances beyond our control. Therefore, I can not allo w the lack of money, unemployment and difficulties in love relationships, health problems make people lose trust in reason and something that even science prove s its effectiveness. The "magic wand" The whole world is full of diverse doctrines, sects and religions. Each with its own traditions, cultures and regiments. But despite the best preparations for l ife, sometimes flare up against each other, bringing little feelings. The greate st motivator of disbelief is the lack of information. After all, it is important to have real ground before each trial. Esotericism is an example of this, becau se it always has faced criticism from other arts, especially in relation to some forms and objects that approach works. At first, they do not practice evil, the esoteric has been very widespread and accepted. But many elements used in such practices may be harmful to health. This is the case of incense. It is used to b ring spiritual comfort and clean environments. However, excessive use tends to i ntoxicate. The Brazilian Association for Consumer Protection (Protest) in resear ch, assessed the substances emitted in the burning of incense and discovered tha t some of them are toxic. The lack of specific contents described on the packagi ng and the belief that the rods may have caused problems to heal health professi onals. Little is known of the chemicals used for the manufacture of incense, whi ch complicates treatment for intoxicated. The lack of preparation and also the q uestionable character of some involved in the good way hinder the spread of corr ect information. Regardless of belief, one can not expect that the absorption of carbon monoxide bring the cure of diseases. On the contrary. The question then inhaled or worsening allergies, intoxication, cardiovascular problems and even c ause cancer, depending on the amount and frequency. You have to qualify the prof essionals of esotericism, giving guidance on the use of incense, before major pr oblems occur. The regulation of products is also necessary in this process, sinc e a "bull" explanation would be of great importance. So surely reduce many probl ems that are actually in the hospital.

I believe (partly) in horoscope Arthur Lavin Not that the journals. It's hard to believe that there are only 12 "roadmaps" for the day possible for all people of the world, all of which were b orn in the same period will ever be the same, with the same burden and bonuses. But there are characteristics of each sign, and these, I believe. Capricorn will use as an example. According to the description of the site Horoscopes Virtual, those born between December 22 and January 20, are "the established order, and also the effort toward the summit of achievement." I have a friend born on Decem ber 28 that is the person with the most practical and objective mind I know. If it is to reach such an outcome, then you have to do this, this and that. That's it! Outright. Or as he himself would say: "I am under contract."€There is the as pect of the astrological horoscope that I do not know if it makes much sense. No t that I believe in it. What I believe is that, like human life is driven and pl anned every year, the fact that someone born at the beginning or end of the year makes a difference. Especially taking into account that each day spent on early enough in the account of evolution as a human being and citizen. Esoteric is of good or evil? Philip Casagrande Priests and pastors from evangelical and Catholic churches ins ist that every form of mysticism is the work of evil or that whoever believes in God does not need to resort to this kind of belief. What they do not know is th at the followers of the esoteric practices are not leaving to believe in God. On the contrary. He seeks to help others and themselves seeking balance through se lf-knowledge and understanding of life on earth. In the struggle for survival, m ankind has found religion, and from this came the magic. It is believed that the mystic is the junction of truths contained in the occult and religion. But reli gion is recognized that the divine permeates all that exists, linking man to nat ure. Already by the magic you learn to dominate nature, beginning with the art of making fire. Therefore, since times, thousands of people resort to esoteric techniques to master your elf. Arts such as tarot, numerology, palmistry and astrology are part of cism that promises to "assist in reading the future." In this process of ion, is given to metaphysics, which teaches the relationship ancient inner s esoteri divinat

"The man noticed the action of a storm an d tried to guess its cause. For Defendants, esotericism is nothing more than an attempt to reconcile the discovery phase of the most basic natural laws, the ina bility to understand these laws. The lawyer and spirit Ildefonso Leal de Souza s ays that the spirit is no religious bias.

Cinema and the occult: art or reality in the eyes of the beholder Text: Fabiola Goulart - Editing: Cintia Abreu What is mysterious and hidden from the minds of people overcoming barriers and eventually dominating the film indu stry. To get an idea of the power of mysticism in cinema, just take a look at th e list in the top 100 grossing films of all time.

They can also be called "sons of God." Angels are supernatural beings created by God. They are the heirs of salva tion. According to the website Area mystical, angels are among the people to hel p, guide and give inspiration.

The spirits of nature, or basic (gnomes, elves, fairies, elves, undine , salamanders and many others), also belong to the angelic realm. These spirits have the responsibility to relay the divine energy fluent from the center of the universe to their respective elements. The book "Cabalistic Angels" by Monica B uonfiglio, says that each person is born with a guardian angel. "They guide us, teach us, they answer our prayers and lead us into death, and are always at the service of God and not their own," recounts an excerpt from the book. There are several species of angels and each has its own name, each with its light to guid e mankind. According to the writer Monica, the story about the angels is short. The Greeks, who were lovers of precision, which means daimones called genius, an gel, supernatural being. The Egyptians explained thoroughly and in detail, but e verything was lost, burned at the time of the rise of early Christianity in the West.
