Full Moon In Virgo (With Horoscopes)

Published

on

This Full Moon occurs today on March 5th at 1:05pm (EST). It is in Virgo, the sign of self-care, details, health, organizing, discernment, perfection, service, work, and the details of life. Virgo is an Earth sign, and is very much orientated around reality in the physical world. It is opposite the Sun in Pisces (which has been there for the last 2 weeks),  a more mystical and spiritual sign. It is a dreamer and more tuned in to the unconscious. Pisces also is a creative and right brained energy which can also be elusive, while Virgo is more linear and matter of fact. At this Full Moon, these two energies are in a tug-of-war with each other. This period could be a time to turn your dreams into something real and tangible. It could also mean discerning or releasing anything that seems unrealistic or delusional.

For some people, it could also be a great time for healing, especially because of the other planets involvement in this Full Moon. With this energy, It’s important to employ physical healing techniques in balance with the spiritual ones. Often, spiritually orientated people tend to mainly gravitate towards spiritual or energy healing modalities (such as Reiki) but unless we use other methods that work on a physical level, then the spiritual healing will have limited results and will not be fully embodied. This Full Moon (and the next 2 weeks) is a good time to do any type of physical cleansing, detox, and  physical techniques to help with spiritual healing. Modalities and exercises that help to release old traumas and patterns can also be very helpful such as Yoga, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, or the revolutionary Trauma Release Exercises. It would be wise to be open to anything else that is presented to you at this time which helps in this way.

By the end of the month, after the Sun goes into Aries, many of us may find ourselves busier with new initiatives. You may want to take this time over the next few weeks to organize, clean, clear and prepare for a more action orientated time period. It is a good time to get a head start on your spring cleaning and try to have it all done before the next New Moon and Equinox on March 20th. It is also a good time to use Feng Shui to optimize productivity in your workspace and home. The Virgo-Pisces axis is excellent for this approach.

Other aspects over the next few weeks suggest that this could be a time of significant changes that allow us to really move forward in our lives, but we always need to release or transform the things that are getting in our way which could be some of the things described above. Pisces is the sign of escapism, and for anyone who has escapist tendencies, this Full Moon and is an opportunity to transform this into productivity in the real world. Challenge yourself into new productive habits and routines.

 

Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn…The Final Square Off

As a collective, we have been experiencing tense energies since June 2012, thanks to the interplay between Uranus and Pluto. The geometric angle these two planets have manifested into global protests, uprisings, increased activism, political reforms, countries going bankrupt, new currencies getting the spotlight, and much more. An increasing amount of people are getting fed up by the conditions that have been set-up by hierarchy, Protestbanks, politicians, racist police, corporations, Monsanto, as well as Oil and dirty energy industries, etc. Uranus is known as the ‘awakener’, and in Aries it is rebellious. It also rules technology. Pluto is a transformer but also represents those in power who control and manipulate us. It is in the sign of Capricorn which rules monetary structures (such as banking, currency) but also rules governments, corporations, and other structures in place that have sort of managing effect in the world at large. During this time, people have been waking up and challenging these power structures, and technology has been a valuable asset to this cause. This month, we will experience the final tense square off between these two planets which will be exactly on March 16th, but can be felt in the weeks leading up this date and afterwards.

In our personal lives many people have been experiencing similar effects. We may be challenging outdated structures that go against our personal freedom and individuality. Depending on how these planets are affecting you individually, many people may have had flare ups with employers, parents, authorities, and those who hold traditional limiting views that try to inhibit your freedom, individuality and self-expression. One thing I’ve definitely noticed over the last 3 years is the vast amounts of people attempting to become self-employed by using the internet and technology. We are in a time now where technological advancements are allowing us to make a living by doing something that truly reflects our unique self expression. However, I’m saying all of this loosely because it really depends on how these planets are affecting you as an individual which can be determined by identifying Uranus and Pluto’s positions in relation to your natal astrology chart. As this Uranus-Pluto theme concludes this month, we will see some more events and circumstance occur (big or small, and on an individual and global level) with the themes described above. However, although the final peak of this energy will conclude over the next month, it will still be lingering more subtlety until the rest of the year. Also, Pluto will be in Capricorn until the year 2023, so we will continue to experience transformations in government, corporate, and banking structures until then. To put this into perspective, the last time Pluto was in Capricorn the United States became a country which became the dominant governing country and currency during the following 248 year orbit of Pluto. So, by the time we reach 2023, expect to see some new structures established which will be pivotal for the next 248 years. It is believed by conspiracy theorists that those in control would like to create a global government sometimes referred to as the ‘New World Order’. However, with the input and activism of the people and the collective, we can use this period to create our own structures that favour everyone.

Horoscopes for March 5th until March 19th

*Note: These are generalized Sun sign horoscopes and should be taken lightly. The most accurate way to do a horoscope is when an astrologer uses a person’s natal birth chart which requires the exact birth date, time, and location of birth. For more information on doing a detailed horoscope, click on my website link below in my bio.

Aries: This Full Moon emphasizes the need to focus on the details, work, health, and your day-to-day routines. With the changes you make, it can be beneficial and even transformative in your career. You may catch the attention in a positive way from your employers or those who have authority over you. Or you feel the need to make necessary changes in your life to help you change your career path. You have a lot of energy and it would be beneficial to look for an outlet, such as implementing a new exercise routine or any type of sport. Also, you may feel really anxious especially from March 10-17 as their is a possibility that you may feel the need to suddenly rebel against those in power over you. Also be extra careful from March 10-12 as there is a higher risk of accident or injury. Don’t let your irritability get the best of you.

Taurus: This Full Moon highlights your love life, fun, creativity, and children. Some Taurus folk may even want to get involved in a team orientated sport. This is a good period for deepening your ‘big picture’ perspective and philosophical beliefs. This an excellent time to use your creativity in powerful ways and especially for those who are teachers, writers, or work in marketing fields. If you are in a relationship this can be an extra fun and exciting time. If you are not in a relationship, then there is a chance that a new potential lover might be in the picture. If this is the case, it would be wise not to get too attached. A new love interest can be expansive for you on a spiritual or philosophical level, but probably won’t be long lasting. Just have fun with it!

Gemini: This Full Moon highlights your home and family. It is a good time to organize around the house and even start your spring cleaning. Renovations, upgrades, or moving to a new home can also be a theme. Their could also be some positive developments around your shared resources with your family or with those you live with. This Full Moon can be a bit tougher for those born between June 2nd – 8th, as you can be tested or challenged, but its effects largely depend on the dynamics of your natal chart. From March 11th – 12th, you may have issues with coworkers or peers. For those of you who are activists, you may find yourself busy in this regard between March 11th – 17th. It would be a great time to spread whatever message that you’d like to share.

Cancer: This Full Moon is a time to communicate how you feel to those closest to you about things that need to be changed in your relationships with them. It could be with your lover, a partner, siblings, or even neighbours or those in your community. You may see that things are not as good as they can be and you are looking to sort that out. Others way look at you as being nitpicky and you may butt heads with them over their opinions. However, the end result can be significant positive change. From March 10th -12th you may want to try new or unconventional things in your career, or you their may be sudden changes that occur beyond your control. Either way it plays out, you will likely gain from it in a positive and expansive way. Between March 10th-17th there is also a possibility that you rebel against those who try to manipulate or exert power over you.

Leo: This Full Moon highlights your values, money, resources, and self-worth. This can be a good time to do your taxes or get everything ready and organized in preparation for your taxes. You may also want to implement new health regimens, let go of bad habits, and/or change your  routine to help boost your self-esteem. You may also want to change your job in order to improve your income which could also boost your self-worth. If that is the case, then the best time to send out resumes will be March 9th – 10th. If you are self-employed then you could use those same dates to market yourself and your business to help you in boosting your income. However, you may not get the stability you are looking for until March 17th and in the weeks following. Also, from March 11th-17th, your spiritual, philosophical, and big picture perspective may undergo some radical changes that could influence the line of work you want or the need to change your lifestyle.

Virgo: This Full Moon is in your sign, so you will especially feel it. Your emotional sensitivity will be heightened at this time and you may feel the need to contemplate how everything is going in your life. It can be a time of profound insights around changes that need to be made in your relationships, and especially your love life. If you have been self-sacrificing in your relationships this can be a time where it can be addressed, especially with anything related to shared resources. This Full Moon is a time to consider what is important for you and your self-identity. Their could be positive developments and/or sudden changes around money or investments from March 9th – 11th. There will be tension and intense energies in the from March 11th – 17th and for you it could manifest in your love life. If you are not in a relationship then it could be a time where you need to face your fears of being in one. From March 12th and for the following 2.5 weeks, it could be a time where you could be of great service to others.

Libra: This Full Moon is a stimulative time for your creativity and imagination. You could also gain inspiration through your dreams. However, for many Libras this will be a social time and your creativity and inspiration can be stimulated through your friends and network, or tied into your social life some other way. Your network can expand very much, especially from March 9th-10th.  It is also a good time to make positive changes in your home, and the Libra approach to that is making it more aesthetically pleasing. You may even want to do this by making your space more conductive of positive spiritual energies by using feng shui, crystals, or anything else that comes to mind. If you are in a relationship, there could be sudden changes and/or tension from March 11th – 17th, but in some cases it can also be an exciting time. Either way it could be transformative period, even if no relationship is involved. If a new love interest comes into your life suddenly it can have a powerful effect on you. If thats the case, it likely won’t be long lasting and could be ultimately problematic.

Scorpio: This Full Moon highlights your work, social life, groups involved with, co-workers, peers, and social causes. It is a good time to think about how you could contribute your creative energy to your work as well as the collective and for some Scorpios, how it could  be of service to humanity. Conversations with others can prove to stimulating and transforming. Your words can even have a powerful effect on others with your depth. This is a period where you can achieve a lot in your work. As a result, the period between March 9th -10th can be a time where the fruits of your labour are realized and can move you upward in your line of work, reputation, and status. Their can even be an unexpected or surprising reward for you. The period between March 11th – 17th can be a bit intense and chaotic. Any type of communications, writing, work can have someone respond to you in an erratic way or may try to exert power over you. Maybe some changes need to be made or maybe you’re just being tested or challenged. Just hang in there, it will pass after the next New Moon on March 21st.

Sagittarius: This Full Moon highlights your career, duties, and reputation. As this Full Moon is about details, diligence, and work, it may push some Sagittarians out of their comfort zone. This period can be most challenging to those born between Dec 3rd – 11th. Finding that balance between your work and personal life could be a theme. Or you may need to make changes to improve both of them. Their could be changes in your work that  could be beneficial to your income and/or values. From March 9th-10th, it could be a fun and beneficial time in your love life. If you are in a relationship, you may want to do something with your lover that expands your perspective, maybe watch a documentary or go to a lecture, or perhaps something else. From March 11th-17th, you may find yourself in a situation where there could be a sudden event or circumstance, perhaps a fight with your lover, where your values or the way you spend your money needs to be changed. For example, Sagittarius can have a tendency to overdo things especially when it comes to having fun, spending money, drinking, and partying, so it could be related to that. With Saturn in your sign over the next few years, this a period where you need to get more serious and live your life with more discipline. As well, the Virgo Full Moon is asking you to be more conscious of your health, lifestyle and the important details of your life and work.

Capricorn: This Full Moon highlights your goals, spiritual beliefs, ‘big picture’ perspectives, and some Capricorns may even be travelling.  All of these potential themes are a reflection of, or somehow serve, your transforming self-identity and personal values. You may feel the need to communicate your truth to others. When a Capricorn speaks about their beliefs or perspectives, it comes from a very grounded perspective so therefore you could more be more easily received by those who are normally sceptical. Capricorns are more serious and ‘matter of fact’, making you an effective teacher, eye opener, or ‘agent of change’ to others. This is a period where you could be doing a lot of important work at home. From March 9th -10th you could do something in your home that can be some sort of upgrade which could increase its value to you, someone you share it with, or to some potential buyers in the future. The period from March 11th – 17th, you may find yourself in a sudden conflict at home and/or with members of your family such as your parents. Perhaps you will rebelling, or being rebelled against, but ultimately you need to speak your truth. This is a microcosm of the energy affecting the world at large.

Aquarius: This Full Moon highlights your financial obligations which could be in many different ways. It’s a good time to organize all your receipts and paperwork for your taxes. The Virgo Full Moon energy is so helpful because it is detail orientated, so use it to your advantage. There could be some changes come up around shared resources, investments, credit, banking, or even inheritance. These changes could even be orientated around a relationship or regarding shared resources within a relationship. From March 9th – 10th, you could learn something new about asserting yourself in relationships in a way that helps you and the other person grow. From March 11th – 17th, this is a tense time. Be careful while driving or walking in your neighbourhood, as there is a higher risk of accident. You could also have an intense and sudden argument with someone, and it could even be a sibling or someone else close to you. Ultimately, anything can happen in this period, so expect the unexpected.

Pisces: This Full Moon is in your opposite sign, and it may challenge you to pay more attention to the details and the realities of life. Although when looking at overall aspects that day, it’s not that bad for you and you can still go back to your ‘Pisces zone’ of imagination. This Full Moon strongly highlights your relationships and how you relate with others. Any problems around relationships might be instigated by your lack of details and realism. A theme that could play out between you and a relationship is how the two of you are contributing to a good cause. Between March 9th – 10th is a good time to do something that builds up your value in your workplace and in your career in general. From March 11th – 20th, the tense energies could play out in conflicts between you and your co-workers, peers, or amongst a group that you are part of. Their could be conflict between your values and the values of the group. Their could also be some sudden change with your personal finances and resources.

Notable Scientist Publishes A Book About ‘Real Magic’ That Nobel Laureates Are Endorsing

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dean Radin, chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, has published a book called "Real Magic." It has received praise from multiple scientists, including Nobel Laureates.

  • Reflect On:

    Despite the fact that controlled scientific experiments have produced significant results, this type of study is still labelled as pseudoscience by many academics, simply because it challenges what they've been trained to believe.

Is magic real? That depends on how you define it, but yes, I believe ‘magic’ is definitely real, and I’m clearly not the only one. Cases of ‘supernormal’ powers and ‘magic’ of all kinds have been reported throughout history and across almost all cultures–at least until religion was invented and these topics were ushered into the realm of the ‘demonic.’

Proponents of what we now call ‘magic’  include nearly all ancient literature from all parts of the world, from the Vedic texts and the yoga sutras, all the way to Moses, Jesus, Milarepa and Mohammed. Donald Lopez Jr., a professor of Buddhist and Tibetan Studies and the University of Michigan provides a great example in describing the Buddha:

With this enlightenment, he was believed to possess all manner of supernormal powers, including full knowledge of each of his own past lives and those of other beings, the ability to know others’ thoughts, the ability to create doubles of himself, the ability to rise into the air and simultaneously shoot fire and water from his body…Although he passed into nirvana at the age of eighty-one, he could have lived “for an aeon or until the end of the aeon” if only he had been asked to do so. (source)

The crazy thing is there are also modern day examples, but they mostly come from the black budget government programs. In 2016, I published a well-sourced article providing multiple examples from a CIA document that confirms the existence of humans with ‘special abilities’ who are able to do ‘impossible’ things. You can access that here.

‘Real Magic’

A book recently published by the Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Dean Radin, entitled “Real Magic” has received some great reviews. The main premise is the idea that a hidden power resides within every single human being, a power tied to our consciousness, a power that makes phenomena like psychokinesis, remote viewing, and precognition not only possible but something that will perhaps one day be a normal part of all our lives. The book offers a vision of a scientifically informed magic and explains why magic will play a key role in the frontiers of science.

This falls into the realm of a field of study called non-material science. Nikola Tesla was a huge proponent of this, as he had said that the day humanity begins to study this subject matter is the day that humanity will advance at an exponential rate.

Far From “Pseudoscience”

Dr. Carl Jung once stated, “I shall not commit the fashionable stupidity of regarding everything I cannot explain as a fraud.” This is something we should all hold in our minds as we examine this or other claims that are not part of our current perception.

The amount of statistically significant results when it comes to this reality, usually dubbed as “parapsychology,” is very significant. We are talking about hundreds, if not thousands of studies that have been conducted worldwide for decades.

There seems to be a deep concern that the whole field will be tarnished by studying a phenomenon that is tainted by its association with superstition, spiritualism and magic. Protecting against this possibility sometimes seems more important than encouraging scientific exploration or protecting academic freedom. But this may be changing. Cassandra Vieten, PhD and President/CEO at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (source)

A lot of the statistical results for parapsychology are just as strong, if not in some cases more significant, than a lot of the results which emerge from hard sciences, like physics and mechanical engineering. The Department of Defense has stated that results in this area are a clear sign that these phenomena are real, despite the fact that they are still somewhat unexplainable. As far back as 1999, a statistics professor even published a paper showing the results dealing with parapsychology and mind-body connection are a lot stronger than the results used to approve some of our medications. That study was done by Dr. Jessica Utts, as statistics professor in California who had this to say about Radin’s book:

Real Magic illustrates the limitations of 20th century science and proposes a more comprehensive view that incorporates ideas that have been associated with magic throughout the ages. Blending history, humor, and plausible hypotheses, Dean Radin illustrates that there is a staggering amount of evidence for a broader view of science that offers hope for the future of humanity.” 

Another review:

“A thought-provoking book. The author makes a convincing case for the reality and significance of magic.” —Brian Josephson, Nobel Laureate in Physics and Emeritus Professor of Physics, University of Cambridge

Today, hundreds of scientists are coming together to emphasize that matter is not the only reality. They’ve created a manifesto, and you can find links and access more information about this initiative, which started a few years ago, in an article we published here.

“Some scientists are confident that we already know what is and is not possible. But the truth is that science is very much in its infancy. To advance our understanding requires bold excursions into domains some might consider heretical, including esoteric legends about magic that have persisted for thousands of years. This is what Dean Radin sets out to do with Real Magic. In my judgment, it succeeds in blazing new trails. Well worth the read.”  Kary Mullis PhD, Nobel Laureate (Chemistry)

The Global Elite Use Magic

While talking about magic in this sense, it’s also important to mention the global elite, and the idea that they also use metaphysical/magical ‘knowing’ and concepts. Unfortunately, they do so not for the joy of discovery, or from a place of good intention, but from a selfish, egoic place, a place that is in service to self, and not in service to others. This is a big point to consider when discussing whether humanity needs to take down the global elite in order to evolve. You can read more about my thoughts regarding magic and the global elite in the article ‘How Some of The World’s Elite Use Black Magic Rituals To Conjure Up Entities For More Power.’

I believe that as human consciousness evolves and we become more aware of who we are, and our capabilities, we will also realize that love, compassion, and empathy are all needed for us to thrive. Once we completely grasp this, I believe, these ‘abilities’ that lay dormant within us will begin to show themselves more and more.

The Takeaway

The takeaway here is to keep in open mind, and to recognize that what we think we know is always subject to change. Sometimes these things take a while, even if a sufficient amount of evidence has been provided. This type of study opens up new understandings about the nature of our reality, and would change ‘science’ and the current laws that govern it forever. Non-material science truly represents the next scientific revolution.

Note To Selfie: Drop The Mask

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    On social media, it's common to see pictures that don't truly represent us or the situations we are capturing. In many cases, we photograph ourselves 10 - 15 times before selecting the 'accurate' photo we will use.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do we spend so much time creating an image of ourselves, even if it is not accurate?

What if we all put down our masks? What if we agreed, that there would be no more disguises? What if we allowed each other to be our authentic self? Imagine the effect on Instagram. It boggles the mind.

Too many people believe the content uploaded on social media is actually showing us truth. Far from it. The material chosen to be uploaded to Facebook, or liked on Instagram, bears little resemblance to true life. Each photo has been carefully chosen after taking a mind-numbing series of retakes.

Each photo must be meticulously studied to ensure the subject looks nothing like the real thing. After all, the real thing isn’t going to garner followers. No one uploads pictures of themselves returning bottles to the beer store in their slippers, or cleaning out the kitty litter. Followers equate to love. More follower = more love.

We are terrified that people will see our true self and our mundane lives won’t be nearly glamorous enough. So we take 12 pictures before deciding one is good enough.

Note to selfie: Make sure you extend your arms and snap the picture from above. You must be looking up. You will look younger. Social media doesn’t like wrinkles … bad skin … or skinny lips.

“Before I started being body positive on Instagram I would’ve posted the photo on the left (sucking in my tummy as much as possible) and said something along the lines of ‘gained a bit of fat this week’ when in reality, what I look relaxed currently is like the photo on the right.”

The harm that has been done to our psyche is profound. Apparently, the psyche is quite gullible. It does believe the stories shown on social media are true. So our psyche starts putting on some pretty outlandish masks to keep up with the Jones’ psyche. It is a constant challenge to keep up with the Joneses. The Joneses can’t even keep up with Joneses. No one can. It’s a sucker’s game.

What is the result of wearing a mask? – depression, anxiety, frustration, shame. The “Mask-Wearer” knows it’s not true. And they are terrified of being found out. Imagine the fear of being outed as a fraud. And more unsettling is this; if someone falls for that mask you’ve been wearing, don’t believe they’ve fallen for you. They are enamoured with the mask: the image. And the image isn’t real.

Let’s bring a Revolution of Real. Put down the mask. And promise yourself that you will never be anything other than your most authentic self. Masks wear very thin, very fast. Authentic beauty lasts forever.

7 Thought-Provoking Short Films You Can Watch Now For Free Online

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Film has the ability to capture our emotions and move us in what are sometimes very productive ways. We'll show you 7 thought-provoking short films you might love watching.

  • Reflect On:

    How do these films make you feel from watching them? How do they relate to your own life? What action can you take after watching these?

The world of film has always captivated me. Whether it be its ability to present a supernatural reality I’ll never get to experience, or its ability to accurately depict an emotion I can relate to, there really is something surreal about going to or staying in to watch a movie.

And while the subscription numbers to popular film and television streaming platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime certainly suggest that I likely don’t need to sell you on choosing to watch them, I do believe that a pitch needs to be made for the particular variety of them that I’m suggesting within this article.

That variety of course, is short films. The unofficial younger sibling to feature-length films that aside from those that happen to play before a popular Pixar film, or those that are nominated for an Academy Award, often go largely unnoticed by the masses. So I’d like to present a list of 7 thought-provoking independently made short films that you can watch for free online now as part of the Spirit Film Festival until the end of October.

1. Uncaptured

How often do you consciously choose to sit in silence? And better yet, is it even readily available to you? The short film Uncaptured explores the emotional and physical impact that setting aside conscious time to be in silence can have on the thoughts, programs and belief systems we have stored within us.

Through a series of interviews we are given insight in alignment with the famous Thomas Carlyle quote the film presents just after its title card: “Silence is as deep as eternity; Speech is as shallow as time.” WATCH UNCAPTURED

2. The Nine Billion Names of God

Based on the book by Arthur C. Clarke -most infamously known as to co-writer of 2001: A Space Odyssey with Stanley Kubrick –The Nine Billion Names of God tells the story of a Tibetan monk who seeks to list all of the names of God with the help an automatic sequence computer.

Based in 1957, the short film is beautifully shot and is carried from start to finish by a beautiful score, perfectly setting the stage for a thought-provoking adventure. WATCH THE NINE BILLIONS NAMES OF GOD

3. Leave Of Presence

If you were asked to list what would make you happy in life, a well-paying job and vibrant social life would likely make the list. Yet the presence of both of those elements didn’t stop Sudha Suthanthiram from dropping everything to head to India in search of her true calling.

This short narrative film runs less than 5 minutes in length yet it offers great food for thought for all of us questioning our purpose in life. WATCH LEAVE OF PRESENCE

4. Nectar of Devotion

Nectar of Devotion shares the fascinating transition made by the one-time frontman for an acid rock band into GuruGanesha Singh Khalsa. While his former life offered much of the surface-level pleasures that so many of us fantasize about, GuruGanesha delves into how his new life has created a happiness unlike ever before.

The short film runs under 7 minutes in length and goes into detail on the difficulties associated with making the transition and how his new kirtan rock band is making the type of impact he always desired having on others. WATCH NECTAR OF DEVOTION

5. Graham: A Dog’s Story

Whether or not you consider yourself a dog lover, Graham: A Dog’s Story is a funny and touching short film told from the perspective of a dog. From being introduced into the family, to “letting go” we’re led through so many of the stages that owners and their favorite pets often go through in life without much attention.

While the short film is carried by a comedic voiceover, it delves into many unexpected stages of a dog’s life including the impact that they have on us even long after they are gone. WATCH GRAHAM: A DOG’S STORY

6. Bekia

In just 6 minutes, Bekia powerfully shares the story of Hamdy, a seller of used goods doing everything he can to make a living on the streets of Cairo. Director Alia Adel effectively takes us into a world that most of us would never have otherwise known about.

The short is beautifully shot and well worth 6 minutes of your life. WATCH BEKIA

7. I Am Here

I Am Here is a unique short put together by the National Film Board of Canada that follows a mysterious animated travellers journey to discover the origin of life. Carried by a riveting score by composer duo Menalon, the film delves into themes and subject matter we would all benefit from pondering on.

Running just over 5 minutes in length, I Am Here manages to take a look at a lot of the questions so many of us have buried within us. WATCH I AM HERE
