Is Consciousness Energy?
June 11, 2008
If you tune into someone's "vibrations," are you picking up some form of energy they are emitting - perhaps something we might call "psychic energy?"


It may be tempting to think so . . . to think of consciousness as a form of energy. But is it?


What might be going on when we say we feel someone's vibrations?

Well, one possibility is that their brain or their body could be sending out waves of energy - something, perhaps, like electricity. If so, it must be far more subtle than any form of energy known to...

Recipe for Simplicity
May 6, 2008

"Simplify, Simplify…" More than a century after Henry David Thoreau uttered these words, his plea for simplicity has more significance now than ever before.

We work hard and play hard, filling nearly every moment with activity. Most families believe they need two incomes to pay for a standard of living that has doubled in the last 50 years. But do we?

Based on my three-year study of over 200 people who have simplified their lives, I found that we can work less, want less, and spend less, and be happier and more fulfilled in the process.

Here are ten...more

Spiritual Diversity
April 29, 2008

To our pre-Christian spiritual ancestors, spirituality was both contemporary and relevant. In cultures where polytheism (the belief in many gods) was the rule, rather than the exception, individuals were given the ability to find their own beliefs and to choose their own spiritual paths based upon their personal needs and the calling of their own hearts. Households had specific deities that represented the prosperity and protection that the family hoped for their home. Agricultural festivals had gods that watched over the planting, the growing crops, and the harvest. This diverse pantheon of deities created a culture where a person would draw closest to the god...more

Services

We hope you will enjoy the full range of features that you can utilize within Conscious Friends to make and develop new meaningful friendships all over the world.

To see a complete list of the functions available in Conscious Friends and how the Membership Levels compare, select "Upgrade Membership" from the Member Panel (after you register).

Powerful Matching Options

Find new spiritual friends by using our powerful matching features.

Use the Quick Search, located in the upper right hand corner of every page, to quickly find other members based on gender and age. Or use our Advanced Search (select "Search" in the Member Panel on the left side of any page) to pick and choose from many different matching options. Once you've created the perfect search, save it so you can use the same search again with ease. 

If you find too many matches, look for someone nearby. Narrow your search down to those living around your own zip code (not available in all areas).

Plan on being out of town? Search for other members living near your destination and meet up while away.

Forums

Robust forum software allows you to post topics on issues from meditation to art to affirmations and anything in between. Lively forums are a great place to find advice, discuss issues and make new friends.

Forums, sometimes known as message or bulletin boards, allow our members to participate in on-going, in-depth discussions. This is different from "chat", where conversations are brief, visible only in real time to current participants, and disappear after a few moments. Forum posts are longer and remain visible allowing richer exchanges to take place.  All registered members whether Free, Silver or Gold have complete access to our Fourms.

Full Featured Chat

Full featured chat allows you to have real-time chat with other members. Multiple chat rooms are available for different chat topics. Meet new friends! Chat is a great way to find new friends or partners, for fun, shared feelings, questions and developing long term relationships. Meeting and socializing with people online is both fun and entertaining.

Private chat sessions are also available for those more private, vulnerable conversations with close friends.  The Chat Rooms are only available to Gold Members.

Internal Mail Messaging

A fully integrated messaging system is available for you to email other members anonymously and safely. By using our messaging system, you won't have to reveal your real e-mail address or other personal information.

You can also create custom mail templates if you find yourself sending the same message again and again. When creating a templates you can make use of "template variables" for you to personalize your messages. Automatically include your profile data with any message that you send.   All registered members are able to use our Mail Messaging system.  However, Free members are not able to initiate Mails, only respond to them.  Silver and Gold members have full and complete use of the Internal Mail Messaging system.

To initiate a private message, first find the profile or picture of the person with whom you wish to communicate.   Beneath each picture, click on the words "Send Message".  Then, complete the "Subject" box for your message and type in the contents of the message itself.  When finished, click the "Send" button.  You also have the option of sending a copy of your profile with your message.

Friends and Hot People List

Build your own private friends list to keep track of their usernames, and to share photos and events. Use it for your main contact list!

If you see someone you're interested in put them on your Hot People list and build your own customized book of favorite folks.

Banned People

If someone is offensive, or just someone you would rather not relate to, put them on your banned list and you become invisible to them.

Profile Views

Want to see who's reading about you? Look at the Views list to see who has visited your profile.

Photo Gallery

Upload your photos and keep them private for you and your friends, or allow them to be viewed by everyone. Advanced gallery features include multiple album management and automatic thumbnails generation.

Built in photo editing allows you to crop or resize your photos after uploading.  This is a great way to not only share photos of yourself, your family and your pets, but also to create albums of your favorite art, pictures of saints or your collection of favorite things.

Event Calendar

We offer a built in calendar so you can keep track of your events. See public events planned for members of the community, or track your own dates, such as birthdays or anniversaries.
