If you haven't been visiting us lately, you may not have noticed we've had a makeover.
This month, we launch Evolve Buzz, our new forum page that invites you to share the latest news from your niche of the community. Practitioners, you can now share your latest therapies with us. Centres, let us know when you are moving or what you're selling now. And Readers, you get the cherry on top.
In the spirit of free love, we now provide our very own Personals for the metaphysically and spiritually -inclined amongst us who are sick of having to lead double-lives of isolated desperation. Express your love (or not) for the metaphysical, ecological, bestial et al and we'll bet you'll find more than a few kindred spirits. Cavort amongst yourselves and thank us later =)
Evolve Asia intends to be a beacon of light for lovers of metaphysics, spirituality and nature but we know our strength is only so small compared to the greater scheme of things. Contribute freely and often to us so we can continue to bring you interesting and thoughtful articles, videos and news to fulfill your life.
While we're yakking, we invite you to give us your feedback via our forums and inform you that we've also done a bit of reorganisation and you'll now find past issues filed under "Archives". Current issues will continue to occupy their own tab until their month passes.
We hope you like the changes.
Give us some buzz!

The summer heat encourages huge appetites, langour and abandon.
This can translate to lazy intestines and a slew of health problems.
Beat the heat by supplementing your diet with these ayurvedic herbs to maintain your regularity and good health.
Bael, also known as Bengal quince or Bilwa, is a fruit from a sacred tree planted around temples in India. It can be used to relieve digestive ailments like diarrhoea and constipation. It also possesses anti-flatulent properties.
All herbs can be found in ayurvedic specialty stores, indian markets and even your neighbourhood pharmacy.

Here are a few techniques to help you pray most effectively for those who need healing on a physical, emotional, or spiritual level. Praying for others in this way will also help to heal you. The channel is blessed by what flows through it.
Convert yourself into a divine battery, sending out through your hands divine healing rays whenever and wherever they may be needed.
Then your hands, charged with divine power, will throw healing rays into your patient’s heart and brain. Thus his seeds of ignorance will be destroyed, and he will smile with the health of God-love.
First, invoke the Divine Presence to bless, guide and protect your healing prayer session.
“Divine Mother, Heavenly Father, Friend, Beloved God. Jesus Christ, Great Masters of India, and beloved Guru, Paramhansa Yogananda, we humbly bow at Thy feet. Fill us with Thy healing light that we may share Thy blessings with those in need. Lord, give us Thyself, that we may give Thee to all!”
This reverence to the Infinite, God, is essential for true spiritual healing. We are serving as willing instruments for a much greater power than our own little selves. Then proceed with one of the following healing prayer methods:
After meditation, draw the energy to the arms and hands. Rub the hands together briskly, then raise them above your head.
Visualize the person you wish to heal. Chant AUM mentally or aloud three times, deeply concentrating on God’s blessings flowing through your hands.
Do this for as long as you feel to.
Prayer to Divine Mother
You may also pray thus:
Divine Mother, Thou art omnipresent. Thou art in all Thy children. Thou art in (the name of the person). Manifest Thy healing presence in his (her) body, mind and soul.
Rub the palms of your hands together briskly, then hold up your hands and chant AUM three times, sending healing energy to that person.
"A New Breath" is a quarterly workshop that seeks to help mums by mums to equip them with self-help tools through the challenges of motherhood by empowering them with positivity, light and peace within. At a recent workshop:
Ladies learnt about how others coped with the challenges of motherhood like depression through an intimate chat with various speakers. One of the speakers shared how she tricked her body to produce breast milk for her adopted son even though she was not pregnant. The ladies also learnt to use Bach flower remedies, sound meditation, muscle testing and wrote an intention letter to themselves/children.
The next session is slated for September. Each costs $15. Interested parties can email Shamsiah Samsudin at email@example.com or text 8282 4082 to indicate your interest.
