Awareness Of God Decreases Anxiety 

The most prevalent illness of our generation is excessive anxiety. This subject has been dealt with at length by the philosophers and psychologists of modern times. Anxiety flourishes where there is a lack of awareness of the Almighty.

Awareness of God decreases anxiety, as it says: "The Almighty is my source of salvation. I will trust, and not be afraid" (Isaiah 12:2).

In my California years, I worked with many famous mental health people. In times like these, we must return to our basics to center out lives. When we feel there is no purpose to our lives, we are in a crisis. Dr. Harold Bloomfield, a psychoanalyst in California, put forth the proposition that when we are in a personal crisis, underneath it is always a spiritual crisis. The same concerns that we used to be able to live with our now a crisis, because we have lost faith in G-d.

1. Brinicle


Brinicles are the underwater equivalent of icicles. They form

beneath ice when a flow of saline water is introduced to ocean



2. Volcanic lightning

Volcanic plumes produce immense amounts of electrical

charge and static. In rare cases, this can spark a violent

lightning storm.

3. Sprites, Elves and Blue Jets

These colourful shapes are the result of electrical

discharges in the atmosphere.

4. Fire Rainbows

Fire Rainbows are formed by light reflecting from ice crystals in

high level clouds. The halos are so large, they often appear

parallel to the horizon.


5. White rainbows

These rainbows form in fog, rather than rain. The condensation

reflects little light, and as a result, the rainbow is made up of

very weak colors – like white – rather than the vibrant colors

of a traditional rainbow


6. Fire Whirls

Fire whirls are whirlwinds of flame. They occur when intense

heat and turbulent wind conditions combine.

7. Catatumbo Lightning

At the mouth of the Catatumbo River in Venezuela , a very unique

mass of storm clouds swirl, creating the rare spectacle known as

Catatumbo lightning. The storm occurs up to 160 nights a year,

10 hours per day and 280 times an hour.

8. Moonbow

Moonbows are rainbows produced by light reflected off the

surface of the moon, rather than the sun. Due to the small

amount of light reflected off the moon, moonbows are quite



9. Glory

A glory is an optical phenomenon, similar to a rainbow, that

resembles a halo. It occurs when light tunnels through air

inside rain droplets and emit the light backwards. Yes, that's

as crazy as it sounds

10. Waterspouts

Waterspouts are vortexes, which occur over a body of water.

No water is sucked in and the sprout is made entirely from

water given off by condensation.

11. Morning Glory

Morning Glory clouds are incredibly rare, so much so, that we

don't know what causes them. They're most commonly seen

at fall in the small town of Burketown in Australia .

12. Lenticular Clouds

Lenticular clouds are lens-shaped clouds that form when moist

air flows over a mountain and piles into large and layered clouds.

Due to their strange shape, these clouds are often mistaken for


13. Penitentes

Penitentes are tall, thin blades of hardened snow and ice that

form at high altitudes. At such a height, the sun's rays are able

to turn ice into water vapor without melting it first. Some areas

randomly turn into vapor more quickly than others, forming de-

pressions in the smooth surface. Over time, they transform into

jagged fields which face the same direction as the sun.

14. Supercells

Supercells are the rarest and most dangerous type of storms.

While they are formed just like other storms, the vertical rotation

of their updraft means that they can sustain themselves for far


15. Frost Flowers

Frost flowers are formed when sap in the stem of plants freezes

and expands, cracking the stem. Water then draws through the

cracks and freezes upon contact with the air, eventually forming

exquisite patterns.

16. Sun Dogs

Sun dogs are an atmospheric phenomenon that occur when ice

crystals cause light to appear brighter when the sun is at a certain


17. Mammatus Clouds

Mammatus clouds are cloud pouches that form and hang under-

neath the base of a cloud. When air and clouds holding different

levels of moisture mix, the heavier one sinks below the lighter.

18. Snow Donuts

Snow donuts are formed when chunks of snow are blown along

the ground by wind, picking up material along the way. The inner

layers are weak and can easily blow away, leaving a donut.

19. Belt of Venus

The Belt of Venus is a pink glowing arch seen across the sky

when the shadow of the Earth's translucent atmosphere casts

a shadow back upon itself.

20. Asperatus Clouds


Asperatus Clouds were only classified in 2009. As a result, we

know little about them other than the fact that they look amazing.
