Journey into the Self - Chakras  


As you are sitting here reading this allow your awareness to turn inwards into yourself.

Become aware of the subtle energy centres in the body and your connection to Mother Earth beneath your feet.

Reach up to the stars with your feelings and feel the whole universe as a part of yourself.

Using your imagination, visualise each of your energy centres or chakras opening and starting to radiate healing energy from each centre.              


Focus on your connection to the planet. Visualise roots of orgone energy growing out of your feet and spiralling down deep into the centre of the Earth.

As this connection gets established, visualise all the negative, stale orgone energy being drawn down these roots. And, as the stale energy leaves your system, feel an exchange of energy taking place.

Feel fresh, revitalised energy coming up these roots into your body. Feel refreshed, revitalized, full of health, happiness, joy and vitality. Feel at one with the Earth.

Allow your attention to rise up your body to the base of the spine. Visualize your Base Chakra opening its four petals. See a vortex of lovely red energy radiating out. Feel it expanding and swirling all around and permeating through the physical body.

Go through this opening process with each Chakra in turn:

The six petals of the Sacral Chakra radiating beautiful Orange light.
The ten petals of the Solar Plexus Chakra radiating a lovely Yellow light, all the colours blending together, bringing balance and healing as each extra chakra is added.
The twelve petals of the Heart Chakra radiating a soothing Green light. Feel the difference as we move from the lower chakras to the more spiritual ones.
Allow your attention to rest on your Throat Chakra. See the 16 petals opening and a soft Blue light flowing out, mingling and blending.
You can already feel your Brow Chakra bursting with energy as your attention reaches up to it. See the 96 petals of the Brow Chakra opening, bathing you in Purple light.
The Crown Chakra and the 1,000-petalled Lotus is your connection to all the planets and stars in the universe. Just feel the universal White light entering through the crown of the head and bathing the whole of your body in the holistic energy. Feel the auras around your body being healed and repaired by this White light. Allow your awareness to expand and feel at one with the whole universe.
As you bring your awareness back to the silence, notice the change in tone. Even though we are talking of silence, note that it has a tone, or a ring, or a grain within it. Note that with the Chakras open your whole energy frequency seems to have been raised.

Use your imagination to visualise some of your hearts aspirations for yourself and your life. Use all your senses to experience these dreams. You can even run them like a movie over your awareness.

Thinking in the silence is very powerful orgone, as it moves the whole universe to bring you what you desire. Therefore, dream your dream about positive, life-supporting things, which benefit not only yourself but also those around you. Then just let your dream melt into the silence again.

As we start to reconnect with our physical body again, become aware of your Crown Chakra and, as we draw in the petals of the Crown Chakra, feel the energy being left in perfect balance.

Take the awareness to the Brow Chakra. As we draw in the petals of the Brow Chakra, just know that this chakra is responsible for the higher mind functions and sixth senses like Telepathy, Dj Vu, Premonitions, and all the "Clairs": Clairvoyance, Clairaudience, Clairsentience, etc.

As we take our attention down to the Throat Chakra and draw in the petals, just know that this chakra is responsible for our powers of communication. Not just our voice, but also all the senses of hearing, sight, touch, taste and smell: they all communicate through this chakra.

Passing down to our Heart Chakra, draw in the petals and know that this chakra is responsible for our feelings. This is the connection to finer layers of our self, through all the organs of the body into the cells. Down into the molecules and atoms, right down into the silence of the Void itself.

Now as we come to the Solar Plexus Chakra and draw in the petals, know that this chakra is our emotional centre. Our emotions are stored in the fluids within the body. See the Yellow light of the emotional chakra flowing clearly.

Lets use the process of forgiveness to claim our orgone energy back. For if we project our emotions to another we give away our power. Take responsibility for yourself through forgiving, both yourself and the other person.

As we take our attention down to our Sacral Chakra, just know this chakra connects us through personal relationships with our family and friends. Know that this web of connections to those we love has been cleansed by the Orange light radiating from the Sacral Chakra.

Finally we come to the Base Chakra. As we draw in the petals of the Base Chakra, know that this chakra helps to maintain our physical body and our connection to the Earth. See this beautiful Red light in perfect balance.

As we draw up the roots from the Earth, feel our batteries fully recharged by the energy we have drawn into our body. Feel in perfect balance, full of health, happiness, joy and vitality, as we return to our normal everyday level of awareness.

The Centre of our Existence!  

Most of us have heard talk or have read something about the seven centers of energies that we refer to as Chakras. I do believe these are very important centres of our being in terms of our energy field, our aura, and most of all our own balance that can manifest into our physical body.

So what can we do about these energies and how can we balance these centres? You dont need a high level of schooling but perhaps only a few small tips that can enhance your association with the different levels of these Chakras.

These Chakras are usually associated with colors. Not simply to distinguish them, or identify them from each other, but because colors on their own play on our emotional psyche. I personally work with nine chakras instead of seven. I will go through the nine charkas and explain their characteristics.


The characteristics of the Chakras, having worked with them for many years through my meditation and healing, are represented as follows: We will start from the bottom up.

The Root Chakra is the first Chakra located on the base of the spine, and its color is "Red" and its secondary color is "Black". Its characteristics are a grounding to the earth plane existence in a body. It holds the basic needs of stability, security, and survival. In our body, Root Chakra body parts include the hips, legs, rectum, kidneys, bones, colon, and lower back. Any red or black gemstones will help heal and balance this Chakra. Recommended gemstones: Garnet, Ruby as red, and smoky quartz and obsidian for black.

The Belly Chakra is the second Chakra located in the abdomen, and its color is "Orange". Its characteristics are our sexuality, self-esteem, our own personal power, and power of the world. This Chakra accesses the lower level of the emotional body and houses ones unhealed inner child. Inner child here are where the images of both this life, and past life traumas, are stored. The ability to let go of old emotions is based in this Chakra. This is a very powerful chakra. In our body, Belly Chakra body parts include the ovaries, vagina, genitals, uterus, lumbar spine, kidneys, bladder, and large intestine. Any orange gemstones will heal and balance this Chakra. Recommended gemstones: Carnelian (help in pregnancy), and Coral.

The Solar Plexus Chakra is the third Chakra located in the stomach, and its color is "Yellow". Its characteristics are the conscious and rational mind. Our self-confidence, personal power, and intuition is manifested here. Business, math sense, and material learning ability are focused here as well as self-empowerment and our will. Our inner child as part of our Soul is housed there and that can help to bring us our survival tools. Solar Plexus body parts include the stomach, bladder, pancreas, small intestine, liver, and gall bladder. Any yellow gemstones will heal and balance this Chakra. Recommended gemstones: Citrine or Yellow Sapphire.

The Heart Chakra is the fourth Chakra located in the heart, and its color is either "Green" and as secondary color "Pink" pending on the persona state of mind. Pink will represent earthly love and that the person is looking for love. Green is more universal and unconditional love for self and for humanity as a mean of compassion. Its characteristics are that it is very important to give and receive love. It is about the ability to love yourself and others. Heart Chakra body parts are the heart, circulatory system, lungs, shoulder and the upper back. Any color of pink or green gemstones will heal and balance this Chakra. Recommended gemstones: Modalvite and Malachite for the Green, and Pink Crystal Quartz and Kunzite for the Pink color.

The Throat Chakra is the fifth Chakra located in the throat, and its color is "Light Blue". Its characteristics are expression, hearing (include psychic hearing), receiving others, communication, and creativity. It holds the blueprint of the physical body. Possibility for change, transformation and healing are located here, including healing ones future verses the past, through karmic release. The throat can store our anger, and what we need to let go of. Throat Chakra body parts include the throat, neck, jaw, teeth, ears, hearing, and the thyroid gland. Any light blue gemstones will heal and balance this Chakra. Recommended gemstones: Aquamarine, Blue Tourmaline or Turquoise.

The Third Eye Chakra is the sixth Chakra located between our brows, and its color is "Indigo". Its characteristics are where we see beyond physical realities into the psychic realm, for understanding of the non-physical truth. It is defined as the place of the Goddess Within. Third eye Chakra body parts include the eyes, face, and brain. Any indigo gemstones will heal and balance this Chakra. Recommended gemstones: Azurite and Sapphire. Love Spells.

The Crown Chakra is the seventh Chakra located on top of our head, and its color is "Violet". Its characteristics are that it is the first point where the Soul enters into the body at birth through its return journey into this plane. It is defined as the place of the Goddess herself. Crown Chakra body parts include the spine and nervous systems. Any violet gemstones will heal and balance this Chakra. Recommended gemstones: Amethyst and Serenite. Orgone.

The Connection Point Chakra as I call it is the eighth Chakra located few inches from the crown Chakra and its color is "Clear or White". This is where communication with your guides and loved ones will take place and bring clarity to your link to guidance and peace. It is beyond our physical body and rarely has any effect on us. Any white or clear stone will heal and balance this Chakra. Recommended gemstones: White and Clear Quartz.

Oneness with the source Chakra as I call it, is the ninth Chakra located a few feet higher than the Connection Point Chakra and its color is "Gold". This is the level on which the soul works. The experience on meditating on this will differ for each of us as individuals because our experiences on a soul level are unique to each, every one of us for our own evolution at a soul level. It is a very high and strong Chakra, and it may be uncomfortable for some people. It will take some practice to get use to its energy. I never used any Gemstone for this Chakra but it is essential to have balanced the complete Chakra for it to work properly. You can use a mixture of the eight Gemstones from the different Chakras to heal and balance it.

I personally use the last two Chakras, but they are not necessary when first starting to use your Chakras when you start meditating. Once you become familiar with your centre points and try to tap into their energies then those Chakras can offer you some benefit and they will have their effect on you.

Chakras are a very important part of our life and we may accept this or not. It is a personal choice. Whatever your preference is on the subject, you will feels its effect in your daily life.

Cleansing & Balancing the Charkas   


Cleansing and balancing the chakra system is important to the overall health of the individual. There are several different techniques that can be used to cleanse and balance each of the charkas. The important thing is finding the one that is most comfortable. The exercise below is simple. It can be done in a few minutes. Practiced each day, it will leave the individual feeling more energetic and focused.

The technique that follows can be modified by the individual to suit his/her own needs. Start off by sitting in a chair or standing somewhere comfortable with your feet flat on the ground/floor. It is particularly important to sit or stand if you are new to meditation practices. Laying down cues the body, energy, that it is time for sleep.

Once you are positioned, take a few deep but slow cleansing breaths. The idea isn't to gasp for air, nor is it to breathe unnaturally, but to get the blood deeply oxygenated. Breath is a natural healing mechanism, and many of us in the west will find that we breathe in a very shallow manner which starves our bodies and brain of oxygen. Breathe in at a slow steady pace and feel the oxygen enter your body, continue the slow steady inhale until the breath has expanded the chest and abdomen just as a balloon fills with air.

Hold the breath for as long as it is comfortable, and then release and do the exhale at the same slow relaxed pace, blowing through the lips as though you were blowing out a candle. Be sure to fully empty the lungs before beginning the next inhalation.

After three of these breaths release tension and relax more deeply. Take a few comfortable normal paced breaths as you do this. Once you are comfortable and ready to continue, close the eyes and envision a golden white ball of light above the head. This is the holy light, representing the connection between yourself and the Divine.

This ball of light sits a few feet above the top of the head and begins to expand and stream down. As you allow the light to flow (don't force or pull it etc) relax even deeper knowing you are safe and at peace. Be fully present with this light, and as the light descends down upon the crown of your head take another deep breath as we did earlier.

As you breathe in say in your mind "I allow the light to heal, cleanse and balance"". On the exhale say "I release all that is not for my highest good"". Relax and allow the light to move down to the third eye (between the eyebrows) when it is ready, then repeat the breath and mantra on both the inhale and the exhale.

Continue this process slowly and let it flow naturally all the way down your chakra system until it reaches the soles of the feet. When it has reached the soles of the feet, envision a ball of energy from in the Earth rising up slowly into the soles of your feet. Allow this energy to carry away any residual energies that need to be cleansed and take them back into the Earth for reprocessing/healing.

As you continue to relax say a prayer of gratitude. Take a few moments to sincerely reflect on all of your lifes blessings and to show appreciation to Spirit for all the abundance that is housed within you. The important thing to remember is that you are a channel allowing these powerful energies to flow through you. You don't have to have any special talent or abilities to benefit from this healing as "you" are not doing it, but allowing Spirit/God to do this through you. It is an exercise of "allowing"

Another variation others enjoy, is to do this meditation while in the shower. As you feel the water washing over you, you can envision your energy field also being cleansed and balanced. The water as it goes down the drain, carries away all negativity and extra energy.

For grounding and healing also participate in activities that put you in direct contact with the Earth, walk barefoot in the grass, sit with your back against a tree, plant a garden, (this is healing to your Earth mother as well) anything that puts you in contact with nature is deeply rejuvenating and healing.

Tantra - The Serpentine Ascent


Occult Vibratory Chemistry existed in India by the name of Tantra.

Tantra is derived from two Sanskrit words - Thanoti ( to expand ) & Trayate ( to liberate). This Science has the power to expand and liberate !

Expansion means to grow beyond one's boundaries. Expansion upto Infinity. Thanothi means the expansion of Consciousness ad infinitum.Individual consciousness should expand to Universal Consciousness for mergence in the Supreme Self.

Trayate means to liberate, to liberate man from bondgage, from the Seven Deadly Sins which bind him to the sublunar world. The purging of mortal dross is a must for Self-Actualisation and the " inner enemies of man " Lust, greed, anger, jealousy, sloth, covetousness & attachment ) are the real blocks in the way of Self Actualisation

Liberation is not possible without expansion of Consciousness. When our individual Consciousness expands to Cosmic, we feel whole & are liberated from the thraldom of matter.

The Upanishadic Philosophy was based on the Five Concentric Sheaths known as the Five Koshas. The outermost concentric Sheath, the Anna Maya Kosha, is known as the Material Sheath. It envelopes the other four sheaths - vital, mental, intellectual & bliss.

A diagramatic representation of the Five Concentric Sheaths can be seen at http://zodiaccomputers.com/html/yoga.htm


Tantra, on the other hand, speaks about the Six Chakras, dynamoes of Cosmic Energy in the human body.

These Chakras are ( in ascending order)

1. Root Chakra ( Muladhara ) 2. Anal Chakra ( Manipura ) 3. Solar Plexus Chakra ( Swadhistana ) 4. Heart Chakra ( Anahata ) 5. Throat Chakra ( Vishuddhi ) 6. Eyebrow Chakra ( Ajna )

A diagramatic representation of the chakras can be seen at

The Five Great Elements ( Earth, air, water, fire & ether ) & Mind reside in the Six Chakras.

Earth-Principle resides in the Root Chakra Water-Principle resides in the Navel Chakra Fire-Principle resides in the Solar Plexus Chakra Air-Principle resides in the Heart Chakra Ether-Principle resides in the Throat Chakra Mind-Principle resides in the Eye Brow Chakra. Orgone

The Microscomic representative of the Macrocosmic Shakti ( Cosmic Power ), the Kundalini, sportest as the Six principles in the Six Chakras in Her Cosmic Play.

O Infinite Power ! Thou art the Mind-principle in the Eye brow Chakra In the Throat Chakra , Thou sport as the Ether-principle In the Heart Chakra, Thou sportest as Air- principle In the Solar Plexus Chakra, Thou art Fire-principle In the Navel Chakra , Thou exist as Water-principle In the Root Chakra, Thou art the Earth _Principle, O Mighty Mother ! And in the Crown Chakra, Thou sportest blissfully with thy beloved Consort !

She lies coiled in human beings as the Coiled Serpent Power ( Kundalini). She rises during Mediation and Yogic processes.

Her rise can be felt by the meditator. When She rises, a subtle warmth will be felt in the body. Voice changes. Voice becomes musical, " propertied as the tuned spheres". The personality of the native becomes very attractive due to the influx of Jupiterian energy. Wisdom and learning grace the individual. When She rises furthur, torrential bliss will be felt. And when She reaches the Crown Chakra, it is Cosmic Consciousness for the native !

She sports as Universal Power in the Macrocosm; and in the microcosm as the coiled Serpent Power!

Infinite Power of the Absolute art Thou! The Cause of the Universe as Maya The entire Creation is Thy Play Thy blessing is Bliss Absolute !

The essence of all sciences art Thou All women Thy manifestations ! The visible Universe Thou art And the dormant Serpentine Power !

One of the pioneers in Tantra Research was Sir John Woodroffe , who had written many scholarly treatises on the subject. His magnum opus is the "Serpent Power", which is a scientific treatise about the Kundalini. His practice of Tantra endowed him with personal magnetism. He became the cynosure of all eyes. There was a special lustre on his face, he possessed the Golden Tongue of Good Report & there was a spiritual halo around him. He had developed his Auric Field ( the human electro-magnetic field ) due to Tantric techniques and bacame a dynamo of spiritual energy. His masterly book is a scientific diagnosis about Tantra.

The heart and vocal nervous centers are intimately related physiologically. Bhava Shuddhi or purity of Heart makes the voice innocent and musical. The true Initiate is he whose voice is true and who possesses the Golden Tongue of Good Report!

The Cosmic Shakti is the Force behind the Universe & the entire Universe is her play & display. Kundalini is Her microcosmic representation. She has been depicted as the Mother Goddess in Pagan philosophies.

Nature is visible Intelligence; Intelligence is invisible Nature. The Spiritual & the Natural are not different. That which is spiritual is natural in its ascent & cause. That which is natural is spiritual in its descent and being.

She is the female component of the Ultimate and all systems deal with the male and the female components of Reality. The male component is He ! Consciousness and Force, the Supreme Self and Nature, Matter and Spirit, Being and Becoming, the One and the Innumerable, the Formless and then a delirium of Forms - She and He, two in one, inseparable ! He, outside Time, outside Space, pure Being, pure Consciousness, the Great White Silence wherein everything is contained in a state of involution, contained, yet formless !

She flings forth from Him in an outburst of joy, again to find Him playing in Time, She and He, two in one , inextricable! Can Nature exist without her Lord ? Can He exist without Nature ?

This is the Purusha and Prakriti of Sankhya, the Brahman and Maya of Vedanta , the Sive and Shakti of Tantra !

Without Him, I exist not Without Me, He is unmanifest ! - The Mother of Auroville

It is due to Her Grace that a man becomes a material success. It is She who gives the successful man the indomitable Will Power needed for success.

On the other hand, it is also Her Grace which giveth spiritual success. It is She who gives the devotee the necessary Self-knowledge, makes him do altruistic acts & leads him to Self-Actualisation. In other words, She has two aspects, material & spiritual and Her Grace is absolutely necessary for success in both the spheres. .

It is said that She, as the Prakriti ( Nature ) of Purusha ( Supreme Self), is the base of the Universe & when She becomes supremely pleased with the devotee, confers on him Self-Actualisation !

She is the Creatrix, She is the Mediatrix, She is the Dispensatrix and the Executrix of the absolute mechanism of Universal Justice.

Power is Divine and not to be condemned

It is this Power aspect of Consciousness which India has depicted as the Divine Mother. It is a mistake of the ethical and the religious mind to condemn Power as something unworthy because it is in its very nature corrupting and evil. Despite arguments to the contrary ( Power corrupts and absolute Power corrupts absolutely), Power, Shakti, Will is the mover of the worlds and basically is spiritual in origin and divine in character !

A Power to call Eternity into Time And make the body's joy as vivid as the soul's !.

The highest philosophic concept is that of the Philosopher-King, he who possesses powers both eternal and temporal. They were known as Raja-Rishies in India. Lord Rama, Lord Krishna, King Janaka were all Raja-Rishies. Marcus Aurelius & Augustus Caesar in the West were also reputed Philosopher-Kings. They did not renounce power !

Tantra as related to Astrology

Tides are caused by the Moon. The human body is 65% water. ( Even the Archbishop of Canterbury is 65% water ). If Moon can effectuate tides, what effect will he have on the human body which is predominantly water? And what about the effects of other planets ?

Your Body is a Map of Your Consciousness



Your Body Is A Map of Your Consciousness - by Martin Brofman, PhD. Everything begins with your consciousness. Everything that happens in your life, and everything that happens in your body, begins with something happening in your consciousness. Your consciousness is who you are, your experience of Being. You decide what ideas to accept and which to reject. You decide what to think, and you decide what to feel. When these decisions leave you with residual stress, you experience the stress as if in your physical body. We know that stress creates symptoms. The interesting question is, "Which stress creates which symptoms?" When we are able to quantify this process, we are then able to see the body as a map of the person's consciousness, relating particular symptoms to particular stresses and particular ways of being, in the same way that Type "A" Behavior has been able to be associated with heart disease. Everything Starts In Your Consciousness To understand this map, we must first orient ourselves to the idea that the causes of symptoms are within. While it's true that germs cause disease and accidents cause injuries, it is also true that this happens in accord with what is happening in the consciousness of the person involved. Germs are everywhere. Why are some people affected and not others? Something different is happening in their consciousness. Why do some patients in hospitals respond better to treatment than others? They have different attitudes. Something different is happening in their consciousness When someone is injured in an "accident," why is it that a very specific part of the body is affected, and that it is the same part that has had habitual problems? Is that an "accident," or is there a pattern and an order to the way things happen in our bodies? You Are A Being of Energy Your consciousness, your experience of Being, who you really are, is energy. We can call it "Life Energy" for now. This energy does not just live in your brain; it fills your entire body. Your consciousness is connected to every cell in your body. Through your consciousness, you can communicate with every organ and every tissue, and a number of therapies are based on this communication with the organs which have been affected by some kind of symptom or disorder. This energy which is your consciousness, and which reflects your state of consciousness, can be measured through the process known as Kirlian photography. When you take a Kirlian photograph of your hand, it shows a certain pattern of energy. If you take a second photograph while imagining that you are sending love and energy to someone you know, there will be a different pattern of energy shown on the Kirlian photograph. Thus, we can see that a change in your consciousness creates a change in the energy field that is being photographed, which we call the aura. This energy field shown in the Kirlian photographs has been quantified, so that when there are "holes" in particular parts of the energy field, these are said to correspond to particular weaknesses in specific parts of the physical body. The interesting thing about this is that the weakness shows up in the energy field before there is ever any evidence of it on the physical level. Thus, we have an interesting direction of manifestation shown through what we have described. 1. A change of consciousness creates a change in the energy field. 2. A change in the energy field happens before a change in the physical body. The direction of manifestation is from the consciousness, through the energy field, to the physical body. Consciousness------1------ºEnergy Field------2------ºPhysical Body When we look at things in this way, we see that it is not the physical body creating the energy field, the aura, but rather the aura or energy field that is creating the physical body. What we see as the physical body is the end result of a process that begins with the consciousness. We Each Create Our Reality When someone makes a decision that leaves them with stress, creating a blockage in the energy field with a sufficient degree of intensity, this creates a symptom on the physical level. The symptom speaks a certain language, which reflects the idea that we each create our own reality. When the symptom is described from that point of view, the metaphoric significance of the symptom becomes clear. Thus, instead of saying, "I can't see," the person would have to say, "I have been keeping myself from seeing something." If they cannot walk, they would have to say, "I have been keeping myself from walking away from something." And so on. We must understand that there are no accidents and no coincidences. Things do happen according to a pattern and order. The Human Directional System We can say that we have an inner guidance system, a connection to our Higher Self, or our Inner Being, or whatever name we choose to give this Higher Intelligence. This inner guidance system functions through what we call our intuition, or our instinct. It speaks a very simple language. Either it feels good, or it doesn't. All the rest is just politics. We are told we should move with what feels good, and do not do what doesn't feel good to us. We are told to trust this inner voice. When we don't follow this inner voice we feel tension. We feel not-good. Then, the voice must get louder. The next level of communication is through the emotions. As we move more and more in the direction that feels not-good, we experience more and more emotions that feel not-good, and at some point we can say, "I should have listened to myself when I thought to move in the other direction." That meant that we heard the inner voice. Otherwise, we could not have said, "I should have listened." If we make the decision we know is the right one for us, and therefore change direction, there is a release of tension, we feel better, and we know we are again on the right track. If we continue to move in the direction that feels not-good, the communication reaches the physical level. We create a symptom, and the symptom speaks a language which reflects the idea that we each create our own reality. When we describe the symptom from that point of view, we can understand the message. If we change our way of being, we have received the message, and the symptom has no further reason for being. It is able to be released, according to whatever we allow ourselves to believe is possible. If we created the symptom with a decision, we are also able to release it with a decision. As an hypothesis, we can imagine that someone makes a decision that it is not a good idea to express what they want. From that moment, whenever there is something they want, they keep themselves from expressing it, and therefore from having what they want. That feels not-good. The tension grows. They feel more and more not-good as they keep themselves from expressing what they want and not having it. Eventually, something happens to create a symptom on the physical level, and their right arm is affected. It could have happened through falling from a ladder, or in an automobile accident, or by pinching a nerve in the neck, or by "sleeping in a draft." Something had to happen on the physical level to create the symptom, in order to give the person the message on the physical level about what they had been doing to themselves. We do to ourselves literally what we have been doing to ourselves figuratively. The effect is that the person cannot move their arm. They are keeping themselves from reaching for something, and since it is the right arm, on the "will" side of the body, they are keeping themselves from reaching for or going for what they want. They have been giving themselves reasons to not believe that they could have what they want. When they begin to do something different in their consciousness, they notice that something different begins to happen with their arm, and the symptom is able to be released. Chakras And The Map To understand the map of the consciousness that the body represents, we can turn to some ancient Hindu traditions which have been studying consciousness for thousands of years, and which use the language of the chakras. Chakra is a Sanskrit word, and it means "wheel," or "vortex," because that's what it looks like when we look at it. Each chakra is like a solid ball of energy interpenetrating the physical body, in the same way that a magnetic field can interpenetrate the physical body. The chakras are not physical. They are aspects of consciousness in the same way that the auras are aspects of consciousness The chakras are more dense than the auras, but not as dense as the physical body, but they interact with the physical body through two major vehicles, the endocrine system and the nervous system. Each of the seven chakras is associated with one of the seven endocrine glands, and also with a particular group of nerves called a plexus. Thus, each chakra can be associated with particular parts of the body and particular functions within the body controlled by that plexus or that endocrine gland associated with that chakra. Your consciousness, your experience of being, represents everything it is possible for you to experience. All of your senses, all of your perceptions, all of your possible states of awareness, can be divided into seven categories, and each of these categories can be associated with a particular chakra. Thus, the chakras represent not only particular parts of your physical body, but also particular parts of your consciousness. When you feel tension in your consciousness, you feel it in the chakra associated with the part of your consciousness experiencing the stress, and in the parts of the physical body associated with that chakra. Where you feel the stress depends therefore on why you feel the stress. When someone is hurt in a relationship, they feel it in their heart. When someone is nervous, their legs tremble and their bladder becomes weak. When there is tension in a particular part of your consciousness, and therefore in the chakra associated with that part of your consciousness, the tension is detected by the nerves of the plexus associated with that chakra, and communicated to the parts of the body controlled by that plexus. When the tension continues over a period of time, or reaches a particular degree of intensity, the person creates a symptom on the physical level. Again, the symptom served to communicate to the person through their body what they had been doing to themselves in their consciousness. When the person changes something about their way of being, they are able to release the stress that had been creating the symptom, and they are then able to return to their natural state of balance and health. Reading The Map When we are reading the body as a map of the consciousness within, we work with the idea that the tensions in the body represent tensions in the person's consciousness concerning what was happening in the person's life at the time that the symptom developed. The person was feeling stress about something that was happening in their life at that time. We are going to examine the map of consciousness that the chakras provide, in order to understand the language of the symptoms that are associated with each chakra. In order to complete this map, however, we also need to look at ourselves as each a polarity of yin and yang, feminine and masculine characteristics. For most people, their right side is their yang side, their will side, their acting or active side, and the left side is their yin side, their female side, their feeling or adaptive side. For people who were born left-handed, this polarity is reversed. Thus, for a right-handed person, their right leg can be described as their will leg, or their male leg, or the foundation of their will, but for a left-handed person, their left leg would be their male leg or will leg, and so on. Thus, we can talk about the will arm, or the will eye, or the will nostril, etc., and which side it is on will depend upon whether the person is right-handed or left-handed at birth. Each of the chakras is energy vibrating at a certain frequency, in a logical and orderly sequence of seven vibrations. As we move up the scale, the elements become more and more subtle, moving through the five physical elements of earth, water, fire, air, and ether, to the spiritual elements of inner sound and inner light. The heaviest element is on the bottom, the lightest on the top. It is a logical and orderly sequence. The colors of the spectrum also represent a series of seven vibrations in a logical and orderly sequence, as do the notes of the musical scale. Thus, we can put the heaviest vibrations or the longest wavelength on the bottom and the lightest on the top, and a particular color can be used to represent a chakra in its clear state, as can a particular musical note. Music played in a certain key vibrates a particular chakra, and we feel a particular way when we hear that music. Our relationship with a certain color says something about our relationship with the part of our consciousness that the color represents. The Root Chakra is associated with the parts of our consciousness concerned with security, survival, or trust. For most people, this concerns the parts of their consciousness concerned with money, home, and job. When this chakra is in its clear state, the person is able to feel secure, be present in the here and now, and be grounded. When there is tension in this chakra, it is experienced as insecurity or fear. When there is more tension, it is experienced as a threat to survival. Parts of the body controlled by the sacral plexus and this chakra include the skeleton system, the legs, and the elimination system. Symptoms in these parts of the body represent, therefore, tensions at the level of the Root Chakra, and we therefore know that the person is seeing the world through a perceptual filter of insecurity or fear. The adrenal glands are also associated with this chakra. If one leg is affected, we can see whether it is the male leg or the female leg, and thus whether it has something to do with trust in a male or trust in a female. We can also see it as having something to do with trust in the will, or the aspects of trust in the foundations the emotional being, related to what was happening in the person's life at the time the symptom developed. The physical sense of smell, and therefore the organ of the sense of smell, the nose, is associated with the Root Chakra. Symptoms at the level of the nose or affecting the sense of smell reflect tensions at the level of the Root Chakra. Each chakra is associated with an element. The Root Chakra is associated with the element of earth, and reflects something about the person's association with the earth, or how they feel about being on the earth, which we call Mother Earth. This chakra is also associated with our relationship with our mother. When someone experiences a sense of separation from their mother, or not feeling loved by their mother, they cut off their roots and experience symptoms of tensions at the level of the Root Chakra until they can again open to accept their mother's love. When a child comes into the world in the traditional family structure, the mother provides the nourishment and the father provides the direction. Thus, in the child's relationship with its mother, it makes certain decisions about the way things are. The relationship with the mother thus becomes a model for the person's relationship with everything that represents security - money, home, and job. The Root Chakra is associated with the color red. The Abdominal Chakra is associated with the parts of our consciousness concerned with food and sex - the communication from the body to the person within it, about what the body wants or needs, and what it finds pleasurable. It also is related to what is happening in their consciousness about having children. When this chakra is in its clear state, the person is in touch with this communication, and listening to and responding appropriately to what the body wants and needs. Parts of the body controlled by the lumbar plexus include the reproductive system and the abdomen, and the lumbar region of the back. The sense of taste is associated with this chakra, as is the element of water. When someone does not have a clear relationship with water (swimming, for example, or being on a boat), this reflects their attitudes about the parts of their consciousness that this chakra represents. Tensions on the will side or the emotional side of this chakra indicate tensions in the person's consciousness as conflicts between either the will or the emotions with what the person's body is asking for. This chakra is associated with the sense of taste, and with appetite. It is also involved with the person's willingness to feel their emotions. The second chakra is associated with the color orange. The Solar Plexus Chakra is associated with the parts of our consciousness having to do with perceptions of power, control, or freedom. In its clear state, it represents ease of being, and comfort with what is real for one's self - being comfortable with who you are. Parts of the body associated with this chakra include the organs closest to the solar plexus - stomach, gall bladder, spleen, liver, etc. - as well as the skin as a system, the muscular system as a system, and the face in general. The physical sense associated with this chakra is the sense of sight. Anyone with impaired eyesight experiences tension at the level of their solar plexus chakra about the issues of power, control, or freedom. Nearsighted people also experience tensions at the level of the Root Chakra, and experience the world through a perceptual filter of fear or insecurity. Those who are farsighted experience tension also at the level of the throat chakra, and see the world through a perceptual filter of anger or guilt. Astigmatics see through the emotional perceptual filter of confusion. The endocrine gland associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra is the pancreas. We can say that diabetics are keeping sweetness from themselves. When someone gets too close with sweetness, they feel threatened in their power to be who they are, and an emotion comes up to create a safe distance again. The emotion is anger. Diabetes is associated with suppressed anger. The element associated with this chakra is fire, and the person's relationship with the sun says something about their relationship with the parts of their consciousness associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra. The color of the Solar Plexus Chakra is yellow. The Heart Chakra is associated with the parts of the consciousness concerned with relationships and our perceptions of love. The relationships we speak of here are with those people closest to our heart - partners, parents, siblings, children. The parts of the body associated with this chakra include the heart and lungs, and the blood circulatory system as a system. This chakra is also associated with the thymus gland, which controls the immune system. When this is affected, as with AIDS, the person's lifestyle separates them from someone they love. The physical sense associated with this chakra is the sense of touch, in its aspect of relating to the person inside the body. For example, a massage given to someone with no sensitivity to what the person is feeling inside would be an example of the sensation we associate with the Abdominal Chakra, but when the masseur seems to have a sense of what the person inside the body is experiencing, then it includes the aspect of relating we associate with the Heart Chakra. When someone experiences extreme sensitivity about being touched, we would ask what was happening at the level of the Heart Chakra. This chakra is associated with the element of air. When someone has difficulty with air, with breathing (asthma, emphysema, tuberculosis, etc.), we say that their relationship with air reflects their relationship with love - difficulty letting it in, or letting it out, for example The color associated with the Heart Chakra is emerald green. The Throat Chakra is associated with the parts of the consciousness concerned with expressing and receiving. Expressing can be in the form of communicating what one wants and what one feels, or it can be artistic expression, as an artist painting, a dancer dancing, a musician playing music, using a form for expressing and bringing to the outside what was within. Expression is related to receiving, as, "Ask, and ye shall receive." The throat chakra is associated with abundance, and with the state of consciousness called, "grace," where it seems that what you want for you is also what God wants for you. Accepting what the abundant universe offers you requires a sense of unconditionally receiving. This chakra is also associated with listening to one's intuition, and flowing in a particular way where it seems that the Universe supports you in all that you do. It is the first level of consciousness from which one perceives another level of intelligence functioning, and one's interaction with this other level of intelligence. Parts of the body associated with this chakra include the throat, shoulders, and arms and hands. and the thyroid gland. The sense of hearing is associated with this chakra, and the element of ether, the most subtle physical element, corresponding to what we find in deep space. The ether is the crossover between the physical and the spiritual dimensions. Someone looking at the world through this chakra watches the manifestation of their goals. The Will Arm represents manifesting what you want, and the Feeling Arm represents manifesting what makes you happy. Hopefully, the two point to the same thing. Sky Blue is the color associated with this chakra. The Brow Chakra is associated with the parts of the consciousness concerned with the spiritual view, and the home of the Spirit, the Being within. This level of consciousness is associated with what western traditions call the unconscious or subconscious, the part of our consciousness that directs our actions and our life. From this level we are aware of the motivations behind our actions. We can watch our outer theater from an inner point of view. This chakra is associated with the carotid plexus, and the nerves on each side of the face, and the pituitary gland. Headaches in the temples or center of the forehead are associated with tensions at this level. This chakra controls the entire endocrine system as a system, and the process of growth. The Brow chakra, also known as the Third Eye, is associated with extra sensory perception (ESP), the set of all inner senses that correspond to the outer senses, which together comprise spirit-to-spirit communication. The element associated with this chakra is a vibration known as the Inner Sound, the sound that one hears in their ears that does not depend upon something in the physical world. Some consider it a pathological condition. In some of the eastern traditions the ability to hear this is considered a necessary prerequisite to further spiritual growth. The color associated with this chakra is Indigo, midnight blue, the color of lapis lazuli, or the color of the night sky during a full moon. The Crown Chakra is associated with the parts of the consciousness concerned with unity or separation, and just as the Root Chakra showed our connection with Mother Earth, this chakra shows our connection with Our Father, Which Art in Heaven. At first, it is associated with our connection with our biological father. This becomes the model for our relationship with authority, and this becomes the model for our relationship with God. When there is a sense of separation from our biological father, the person closes this chakra, and the effect on the consciousness is a sense of isolation and aloneness, being in a shell, and difficult to make contact with those outside the shell. The person feels as if they are hiding from God, or hiding from themselves, not seeing what is true for them in the deepest part of their consciousness, the part we call the soul. This chakra is also associated with a sense of direction. The parts of the body controlled by this chakra are the pineal gland, the brain, and the entire nervous system as a system. The color associated with the Crown Chakra is Violet, the color of amethyst. Using The Map When there is tension in a particular part of the body, this represents a tension in a particular part of the consciousness, about a particular part of the person's life. Being aware of these associations helps one to see the importance of resolving the tense issues in their life. If it were only a question of doing what is necessary for the person to be happy, that would be reason enough to motivate the person to want to change something that doesn't work for them, but here, we see that it is also a matter of health. The issues that are unresolved in a person's life are, in fact, hazardous to their health. When we see the correspondences between the consciousness and the body, we see the degree to which we each create our reality. In fact, those words begin to take on a new meaning. We see how everything begins in our consciousness and we are able to look around us at other aspects of our lives in the same way. When we see how the body carries out the messages and deepest wishes of the Being within the body, we can realize that the process can go in more than one direction. If our consciousness is directing how we develop symptoms, it can also direct how we release these same symptoms. If our consciousness can make our body ill, our consciousness can make our body well. The logical conclusion of this process is that anything can be healed. Copyright 1987 Martin Brofman   http://www.healer.ch

Auras Observations and Theories

I have seen auras my entire life. I remember feeling surprised and confused when I first learned that not everyone is able to see auras. This sense of bewilderment led me to search for clues at an early age as to what the exact nature of the aura really is.

My research encompassed eastern philosophy, biology, Jungian psychology, electro-magnetism, metaphysics, new age spiritualism and a host of other material which served to shed some light on the phenomena of auras but which didnt quite match what I observed with my own eyes. I do not mean to imply that other interpretations of auras are wrong or right, only that they are not exactly matched to what I have witnessed personally.

It has been my personal observations of auras which have led to the conclusions that I now share with you. First let me describe, as best as possible, what it is that I see when referring to auras. Later, I will offer my thoughts regarding the nature of auras.

I see a vibration upon the surface of objects consisting of multiple colors that seems to resonate based on how much energy the particular object is releasing or reflecting.

Note how I have used the word objects. The auras that I see surround everything, living or not.

I have noticed that the aura of people changes based on moods and health. Particular areas of the body seem to be more likely to manifest a change in aura than others. Hands, face and forehead specifically, seem to offer an indication of general mood and health. The aura vibrates more intensely and appears either orange or red in overall color when a person is ill or suffering some pain.

I have observed a purplish hue in the aura of people suffering from migraine headaches as well as depression. This purplish color is usually seen in the area of the temples or at the brow-line, but I have also noticed it surrounding the hands and feet of depressed people.

The color and size of the aura changes in people during various emotional states. By size I am referring to the distance that the aura spreads out from the body. People in an agitated or angry mood have an aura that appears chaotic and usually orange/red in color. I have also seen changes in aura colors before, during and after meditation.

The air surrounding people has an aura itself, and the aura of a person interacts with the aura of the air surrounding them, its sometimes impossible to determine where the human aura begins and where the air aura ends.

The color of an object has an effect on the aura that it creates. Lighter colored objects seem to reflect aura energy and darker objects seem to absorb it. Primary colors create an aura that most resembles the aura color that I observe most often in people.

The surface of water does not seem to have an aura. I find this unusual since almost every other thing seems to be generating aura energy or reflecting it and has a visible aura radiation. I assume that water has special properties relating to aura energy and must be absorbing aura energy at such a rate that aura is not visible on the surface. I have noticed that other reflective surfaces, mirrors, glass, etc, also seem to have a diminished aura level, but not so much as the surface of water which has no observable aura.

On one memorable occasion I have witnessed a person briefly with what is best described as a black aura. I found this event to be very disturbing and worrisome and did not feel inclined whatsoever to investigate that persons aura in any further detail.

Probably the most significant observation that I have made of auras deals with the subject of the afterlife. At the moment of death there is a sudden and intense burst of aura energy. This aura energy burst radiates outward in a split second and is gone. I have witnessed this phenomenon at the passing of my grandmother as well as in on a few occasions.

We know that living things create and store energy in various forms. We also know that living things are capable of conducting electrical and other forms of energy within their environment. Further, we understand that the environment is a complex energy system, constantly changing and transforming one form of energy into another. A thunderstorm is a good example of the environment in a state of continual energy flux. It is my belief that the human aura is the result of various energies coming into contact and interacting with one another. The human aura is not necessarily a discharge of energy but rather a field of energy created by interactions with the energy fields active within the environment.

Science has to a certain extent validated these statements. David Bohms theories regarding the existence of an energetic multidimensional universe provide a framework for the discovery of the auras origin. I will save the discussion of theoretical physics relating to auras and other paranormal activity for another article. Suffice it to say that the leading scientists of today offer at the very least,the potential for the existence of subtle energies in the form of human auras.

Human aura energy is capable of interacting with the environment and vice versa, and non-living objects are able to retain the energies of living creatures suggesting a method of energy transference that has not been the subject of serious research.

Continued research of aura phenomena may lead to a better understanding of the subtle interactions of living creatures within the energy fields of the environment. Further research may also provide valuable insights into areas of communication, psychology, health and ultimately may even offer answers to the questions of life after death.

Aura FAQs  


Here are some frequently asked questions about reading auras.

I am not seeing any auras

There are several reasons why you are not seeing auras. Here are some of them:
You have not prepared yourself properly.
You are not in tune with the other persons energy. Some people's auras are harder to read than others are.
In this case, make an extra effort and keep in mind that you may not be able to read everyone's energy.
You are either sick, tired, or under stress. At this point, you should postpone reading until you are better.
The person that you are reading is sick, tired, or depressed. When people are sick or depressed, their auras get smaller and less vibrant; hence, they are hard to read.
Aura reading is easier for some people than others. You may need to take a class or buy special equipment, such as aura glasses.
In addition, regular attendance at a meditation group where you can learn to focus your attention and read other's energies is useful.

I am not seeing any colors in auras

It takes a lot of time and practice to see colors in auras. Sometimes, the colors are very muddy and hard to distinguish. Not all auras have colors. The best thing to do is to keep practicing. Eventually, you will see colors.

What do I do to protect myself against negative energy?

If you meet negative energy while doing readings, you need to protect yourself psychically. To do this, imagine your whole body surrounded by white light.

I am seeing entities and energy other than aura

The spiritual realm, on which auras exist, is filled with all sorts of entities, ranging from loving and positive (such as angels) to annoying or even dangerous.
Here are some types of entities that you may be encountering:
Spirit guides and guardians attached to the person you are reading.
Thought forms or psychic imprints. Thought forms can be negative or positive and usually produced by intense brooding. Oftentimes, they maybe indication of physical illness, depression, or mental illness. Many times, they are attached to the individual that you are reading.
Astral travelers. Oftentimes, when we are dreaming or in a coma, our spirits leave the body and travel to other places.
Ghosts--These can be spirits of the person's loved ones or they may have a connection to the house that you are reading in.
The spirits of living people who are either dreaming, in a coma, or engaged in astral travel.
Remember that, in all cases, your focus is on the person to the reader. The first thing you should be is determine their relationship to the person being read. Describe the spirit entities to your client and see if he can identify them. If the energies are at all negative, protect your psychically by surrounding you and the person you are reading with white light.
If possible, address the entities and ask them why there are here and if they have any information, which may help the person, whom you are reading. In any case, whatever entities, you should determine what information they are trying to give to you about the person you are reading.
Can I be a Christian, Moslem, Jew, etc. and read auras?
The belief in auras is not tied to any specific religious tradition. Throughout history, advanced spiritual people such as Buddha, Christ and their immediate students were painted with golden haloes around their heads, because some artists could actually see auras. In Australia remote West Kimberleys, you can find prehistoric cave paintings (right), many thousands of years old, depicting people with golden haloes. All religions have had the concept of positive spiritual energy, the equivalent of the Chinese concept of chi and the Christian concept of grace. Working with spiritual energy help you become a more spiritually balanced person and eventually a better Christian, Moslem, and so

Astral Travel  


ASTRAL TRAVEL: - Why would I put something so natural and real in a mystery segment? Although everyone travels astrally few are conscious of where they go or what happens when they are asleep. The waking consciousness seems a jealous protector of its domain and wishes to give little credit to our dream state. Yet, there are systems of belief that know what our soul learns in sleep to be as important as when we are awake.

Conscious dreaming may have an element of positive thinking and visualization or prayer (wishful thinking) that pure astral travel does not. Some purists will say that OOBEs or 'Out of Body Experiences' are the only astral events. It is possible for others to take you with them on their 'travels' and the adept I mentioned in relation to the mountain-climbing Sutra did that with me. I met Blue Harary at the Psychical Research Foundation in Durham North Carolina many years before he wrote his book on the subject. He had a black cat in his room when I saw him doing his research with them. I have found this helpful myself. Whether that is a 'familiar' or a guide and sometimes even known as an ally is also just words. What might work is what should matter.

As part of the process to conscious dreaming and decreeing it is good to think of everything you did during the day before you go to sleep. As you do this you should think of what you would like to change or do better if the chance occurs (it usually will). In this re-evaluation we learn a lot and re-structure the experiences into new approaches. Then you should think about what you hope to do in the next day as you begin to sleep. No better visualization might come your way, if you are honest with yourself and your soul is close enough to make your ego and worries seem as important as they really are (not very important at all). When this routine is comfortable and you are able to command yourself (More importantly your SELF) and your mind to behave with a smile when the formerly frustrating things you used to react towards; you will begin the process of trusting your soul and dream state. Do not fear anything because you are on the path to greater goodness (if you have really given your ego a break and trust your purposeful soul 'within').

There is much in the self-improvement or human potential movement that comes from Yoga. Yoga is properly translated as 'union' despite what the Catholic Encyclopedia says about it being 'yoke'. The astral or spiritual world of Yoga is not prone to religious or ecclesiastical process and enables a person to 'Follow their Bliss'. This is the essence of all science of the soul work which Jesus and Yogananda are great teachers of when not interpreted by control freaks and power-mongerers who seek to put words in their mouths.

Auras, Energy and Intuition   


Over the years I have learned a great many things since entering the holistic field. The biggest discovery was that the more I learned, the more questions I had. This is true for any field, but even more so in metaphysics.
I have found that there is a great deal of confusion both in and out of the metaphysical world about auras, energy and intuition.

The first concept to understand is that quantum physics teaches that EVERYTHING is energy. Physicists postulate that only five to ten percent of the entire universe is actually physical matter. The rest is all energy vibrating at differing frequencies, which cause the different densities from the thickest steel to the air we breathe. Anything from your car, to the tree out front, to you yourself are all made of energy.
Now you must be thinking, wow ok Im energy, but you are only taking into account your physical body. Yes your physical body is energy but there is more to it than that. Your energetic body extends beyond the physical body. This, in a nut shell, is your aura.

Many people have been taught to extend or fluff out their auras as far as possible. This is the opposite of what should be done. Many people believe that their intuition is somehow connected to their aura. They believe they will be more intuitive if their aura is extended. Intuition and your aura are two different things.
The aura is an energetically and magnetically based field that is an extension of our chakras. It can indicate our physical, mental and spiritual states. Looking at an aura can be similar to a medical doctor checking our ears, nose and throat for symptoms of infection.
Intuition, however, comes from the secretions of the pineal gland located in the center of the brain, between the eyebrows.
Your aura should be kept as close to your skin as possible. Here is an example of why: A friend of mine used to live and work in Manhattan and he learned really quickly to keep his aura close to his skin. It took him awhile to realize what was happening, with his aura so fluffed out he was going through hundreds if not thousands of other peoples aura fields through out his day, in doing so he was picking up other peoples emotional, mental and spiritual stuff. He was getting halfway through his day and he felt like he had been running all day. Once he started pulling his aura close to his skin everyday he felt much better and had energy at the end of the day. You see, not only will other peoples stuff stick to your aura there are some people who will drain your energy because they have so depleted their energy they have to get it from others to replenish themselves.
That is why we teach our clients to connect to their version of divinity to replenish their energies. Whether that be, Gia, Universal Spirit, the earth, God, Buddha, Et Al.
If youre sensitive to your aura or your overall energy, the next time youre going to be in a crowded situation pull your aura close to your skin and see how you feel at the end of the evening. And then think back to how you feel now verses how you felt the last time you were in a crowded social situation. I am willing to bet you will feel worlds better then you did last time.

It does take practice to keep your aura close to your skin. You will want to check it periodically though out the gathering. At this point youre probably thinking, ok this all makes sense I'll try to pull my aura in. As Yoda says "there is no try, only do or do not". What you want to do is find the edge of your energy field of your lower arm, mine is about an inch from my body which is ok since I am alone at the moment, once you have found the edge of your field that can be your reference point. Now imagine your energy field is the air around you and just breath it in, so you have the same amount of energy it's just in a smaller area, closer to your skin now.
When you first start trying this technique it may seem like your having to struggle. If youre struggling then your trying to hard, just relax, breath and if your intention is for your aura to come down to your skin it will.
Once you realize that your aura and your intuition are not related you can begin to work on building your intuition.
I spoke a little bit about intuition at the beginning of this article. The best way I can describe intuition is it's that little voice that tells go the other way to work, then you find out later there was a major crash on your normal route that would have made you late for work. Or that feeling you have that something is wrong with someone you pass in the street. All of those things and lots more are examples of your intuition trying to give you additional information about the world around you. Some people call it the sixth sense and I suppose you could call it that but I prefer intuition, it has a less new age ring to it. Most people, myself included start off noticing their intuition after something has happened. Once you realize its happening and will take note of it you can begin to use your intuition more productively. The biggest problem I have found with using my intuition is getting out of my own way to allow my intuition to guide me not only during healing sessions but in my everyday life.

Integrating Soul and Science  


"Spirit is beyond the void of space. This realm, beyond the void, is not an empty nothingness; it is the womb of creation. -- Nature goes to the same place to create a galaxy of stars, a cluster of nebulas, a rain forest, a human body, or a thought... That place is Spirit." (1)
The idea of thought coming from Spirit is a little general and not something I agree with unless he means REAL thought rather than regurgitated thought. Deepak Chopra is a great and wonderful human being who escaped the material competitive focused world and the 'expertise' that was his, as a doctor. However, we have shown that science is getting dangerously close to finding templates and forms that mirror this kind of philosophy. The church felt science was philosophy and that all things came from this kind of godhead in the 'Dark Ages'; and scientists have justifiably thought any mention of a bridge to religion is fraught with these kinds of intellectual authoritarian terrors. Perhaps now we can re-evaluate our belief in godly forces and not involve religious or priestly interpreters who ask us to 'follow' like sheep. To replace one set of interpreters with another form of 'expertise' is not good. Surely there is a balance that harmonizes with purpose and true knowingness. I like the thought expressed by James Watson in his foreword to Discovering the Brain. He said, The brain boggles the mind.. It is also true that a lot of the boggling has been done by those saying they seek God.
The equipment based on Tesla's 'non-force info packets' that draws energy from a vacuum that Bearden has patented and the wireless transmission of generated energy will make perpetual motion seem tame. The real possibilities of using other dimensions as storage for energy we create could be just around the corner. Someday the barriers we have created in our real world through an ignorant adherence to conventions of black and white certainty will be brought down just like the Berlin Wall; we built it to keep ideas and people from each other.
I'm not cognizant of all the ins and outs of 'red-shifts' or other astrophysical esoterics so the generalities of my insights might not have as much merit. The exorcisms I've been involved in helping free both the possessed and possessor are part of the limbo state which energy exists in after death. Does this limbo state include the same energy band- width that our solar or auric body travels in? Not by experience of the astral work I've done. However, one can meet dead people in astral travel if one has a guide or the spirit is attuned that you are about to visit. That spirit would be a multi-dimensional traveler then. There are many shades and variations of spiritual bandwidths and it may be because there is so much more energy in the unseen world that the astrophysicists told us about earlier. Ninety-five per cent versus 5 per cent is a large ratio in favor of the unseen. The ultraviolet and light energies might even be part of the visible universe, which would mean we can only actually see a percentage of the material universe. And as big an issue as all of this kind of talk is, we still must consider whether or not we know what we see when it slaps us in the face, as they say.
The average person today will likely have their mind and senses closed to the opportunity that the thalami offer to accentuate, amplify and direct non-visual forces to our conscious processing centers. The operational paradigms of the spiritual world are a science unto themselves, and the astrophysicists may not have as good a picture as I hope they do. There are those I have met, who can travel between dimensions and we will deal with these aspects of life and natural possibilities versus hallucination in other parts of this book. But, if the modern research is right about the Thalami, I feel quite certain that all the dimensions are at our disposal in every aspect of our existence. When one remembers the way we thought about spirits and devils as we listened to the preachers who tried to tell us about HELL - it is difficult to open our minds to what they were saying about the saints who performed the very miracles that men and women have always been able to do.
We see that the 'Gospel of Thomas' from the Dag (or Nag) Hammadi 'finds' confirms Jesus never performed any miracle that you or I can't do. We are all the 'children of God' (John 10:34). The dimensional spiritual world is science and real even if we are ignorant of it. That is what the Gnostics he studied with say is the 'Original Sin' that separates us from God - IGNORANCE! Scipio Africanus and others before and after the time of Jesus were used to seeing each other and the spirits of their loved ones alive or dead! In many instances there is potential to visualize the future and it will happen with proper INTENT. Bucky Fuller did it, and I have too. Some say the forces of darkness that created the Dark Age were able to re-program the world mind to the point that our ability was diminished by the evil they fomented. Energy of a negative nature does have to be attuned with good, in order for Abraxas or unity to occur, on the grand scale and as an individual. That is why selfish prayer is wasteful and one must operate in 'brotherhood' and love to come up with things like the geodesic dome or wireless 'free energy'. Still these things are on the shelf and few really know how great they are and how much better the world might be.
Microchemical potentials and observations are exciting corollaries to chaos science. The laws of universe are 'unfolding as they should' (Desiderata was a nice poem that Pierre Trudeau often quoted as Canada's Prime Minister when I was a young man.) 'whether or not it is clear' to us! There are always good things to learn when one looks at the work of these scientists. I especially enjoy those who are willing to do what Bucky Fuller described when he talked about 'stepping outside the circle' or 'biting his tongue' when he felt complacent in the knowledge he had in a particular area of deliberation. Professor Morowitz is a microbiologist and chemist at YaleUniversity who we will show later as an example of what can happen when people think integratively and lose their ego. He also correctly observes that few of the physical sciences encourage this integration. Is it possible to have an answer when the questions are slanted to dovetail with only one perspective? We respectfully offer that no real truth has ever resulted from the need of any tenured or other 'expert' who sought power from his peers rather than enlightenment from 'ALL that is!'
What with genetics and the basic building blocks of matter becoming more apparent to researchers who are free of old philosophic rule by the church there is truly a dawning of a new age. The title of Prof. Morowitz's article in August of 1980's Psychology Today was quite appropriate - 'Rediscovering The Mind'. As we continue to RE!-discover we might even know what is important 'within' our soul. Of course, my opinion is just 'post-modern democratized' ideology as Prof. Wiseman points out. No one person can know all things. He would be right, if he said that. But my response would be that we must all try to integrate rather than compartmentalize our knowledge. That leads to coping skills and application of thinking processes that produce a net creative improvement rather than agreement from those we 'hang with'!
It has been said that there is not much advancement in a civilization which has science separate from its belief system or religion to any great extent. I find a lot of physics in many religious writings throughout time and yet there are still a lot of controlling interests who promote sins and demons in these religions. Here is a little of the Dag or Nag Hammadi papyruses which the Gnostics (later Cathars) saved from the destroying Empire-builders. It is specifically from the Gospel of Mary which was mostly found before the end of the 19th Century.
"22) The Savior said, All nature, all formations, all creatures exist in and with one another, and they will be resolved again into their own roots.
23) For the nature of matter is resolved into the roots of its own nature alone.
24) He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
25) Peter said to him, Since you have explained everything to us, tell us this also: What is the sin of the world?
26) The Savior said There is no sin, but it is you who make sin when you do the things that are like the nature of adultery, which is called sin." (2)
A neuroscience forum which I was invited to has had many people respond to various postings without identifying themselves. I think some of that is because they have a reputation to protect or job they value. Here is one such response to a thread I started.
"Science is reductionist whereas mysticism is broadly integrative. It would seem that science and mysticism occupy anti-podal positions. They are both concerned with truth, yet go about it differently. Science seeks to objectively and mathematically describe truth, whereas mysticism seeks to experience truth. Science and mysticism are flip sides of the same coin. The greatest scientists have invariantly been deeply mystical. I'm tempted to say that the greatest mystics have invariantly been deeply scientific, or at least had an appreciation for science, but this I'm less certain of."
I responded by saying I agreed and that I was certain the sages or greatest scientists were indeed very spiritual. One of those sages is David Bohm and here is a little of how he approached physics.
"In an interview in 1989 at the Nils Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, where Bohm presented his views, Bohm spoke on his theory of wholeness and the implicate order. The conversation centered around a new worldview that is developing in part of the Western world, one that places more focus on wholeness and process than analysis of separate parts. Bohm explained the basics of the theory of relativity and its more revolutionary offspring, quantum theory. Either theory, if carried out to its extreme, violates every concept on which we base our understanding of reality. Both challenge our notions of our world and ourselves.
He cited evidence from both theories that support a new paradigm of a more interrelated, fluid, and less absolute basis of existence, one in which mind is an active participant. Information contributes fundamentally to the qualities of substance. He discussed forms, fields, superconductivity, wave function and electron behavior. Wave function, which operates through form, is closer to life and mind...The electron has a mindlike quality." (3)
In May 2004 there is a report of an archaeological find in Mayan tunnels (they loved the spiritual cenotes and still do) saying it was a millennium earlier than the Mayan ascendancy and yet it was just 200 BC. Aside from the fact that I have proven these people were there at least 3000 years earlier the find is a mask of a sun god. The sun god or Heliopolitan Druidism is just one of the esoteric clues to follow in tracing the travelers or Red-Headed League of Megalith Builders all over the world. The Harmonic of Light was the science behind the shamanic attunements that led to the knowledge mythologized in the various sun-gods which is also interpreted as the son of god.

Mystical Physicists  




By Robert Bruce Baird


"There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance that principle is contempt prior to investigation. Herbert Spencer"

Albert Einstein - "We are seeking for the simplest possible scheme of thought that will bind together the observed facts."

"If we do not expect the unexpected, we will never find it." Heraclitus

"Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives." - William James

"I feel that if we could be serious for an hour and really fathom, delve into ourselves as much as we can, we should be able to release, not through any action of will, a certain sense of energy that is awake all the time, which is beyond thought." Jiddhu Krishnamurti, Madras, 1961

Heraclitus: " conceded the existence of an over-riding, all-encompassing unity, in which the apparently contradictory opposites are all linked to one another, in a single, regular, cohesive system of balanced, harmonious measure and just order."

"Consciousness is a singular of which the plural is unknown. There is only one thing, and that which seems to be a plurality is merely a series of different aspects of this one thing, produced by a deception, the Indian maya, as in a gallery of mirrors." Erwin Schrdinger

I think this means that all the talk about anomalous or truthful science is a bunch of you know what from the ego of man. We are 'connected' and our real self is not our ego. I am also of the opinion that he sees something I think is the nature of reality about the personality that some insist continues in such things as past-life regressions. Yes, perhaps through limbo and obsessions some things stay in this materially focused frame of reference (I have performed exorcisms) but when we are reborn all those memories of other lives are memories of a collective oversoul not anything like an individual soul. Maya and samsara or the 'busy-mind' do indeed deceive as he says - and though a few will gain great insight into the plural they will still be far from totally informed. Thus we must be open to all possibilities.

"Inherent to wave mechanics are the mechanisms of wave superposition and parallel and non-linear information processing. And these mechanisms, which are also affected and regulated by the laws of thermodynamics, are responsible for information growth and the evolution of biological matter. Information begets information." Laurent from Gaithersburg, Maryland.


Our reason (philosophy), should concern our 'selves' with the field of metaphysics. Metaphysics is the study of three entities: the individual being, the universe or what we call reality and what lies beyond the universe. Metaphysics is the study of how and why the individual being, the universe, and what lies beyond the universe interact with each other. Metaphysics is the study of whether or not all three, or for that matter if any of the three, exist. Metaphysics is the study of how and why the three interact, if in fact they do exist. Metaphysics is the pondering over the questions: Where are we? What are we? Why do we exist? It could be argued that Descartes was one of its more prominent figures with his initiation of the concept of knowing, of existing, when he said Cogito, ergo sum (I think, therefore I am). Or, as Popeye said "I yam wut I Yam".

There are many people who are secure in the knowledge that all is right with the world and they feel good about how they personally think about themselves and their soul. I confess I have a lot of confidence but I am not so certain about what the human experience really entails. I see so much more all the time. The opening of each door seems to lead to there being more doors and more books to write therefore. The people who are sure of god being in heaven or those who have bought the world of seems to be may not like this honest expression of what might be real; but they should know that most of the physicists sense there is a lot more than even they know. I love the quantum physicists for all the wondrous soulful things they seem to be able to explain better than me in so many ways. I can hope that a few readers will be those who do not believe in the soul and that after reading this they will be less certain but I do not encourage belief or the closure of possibilities it brings. There are many ways that illusions of separation cause transient errors made by the ego or the persona (Greek for mask) worn by actors during a momentary diversion called life.

In fact I do not think of the soul as continuing beyond this event horizon or material body with anything that ego or personality contains although I do think some of the elemental energy in a limbo state can impact on these reported re-incarnations with something like that until the person grows or harmonizes enough to move on. Religious I am not, for certain; mystic I can be at times I suppose; but mostly I observe like the alchemists who developed the scientific method.

A neuroscience forum which I was invited to has had many people respond to various postings without identifying themselves. I think some of that is because they have a reputation to protect or job they value. Here is one such response to a thread I started.

"Science is reductionist whereas mysticism is broadly integrative. It would seem that science and mysticism occupy anti-podal positions. They are both concerned with truth, yet go about it differently. Science seeks to objectively and mathematically describe truth, whereas mysticism seeks to experience truth. Science and mysticism are flip sides of the same coin. The greatest scientists have invariantly been deeply mystical. I'm tempted to say that the greatest mystics have invariantly been deeply scientific, or at least had an appreciation for science, but this I'm less certain of."

I responded by saying I agreed and that I was certain the sages or greatest scientists were indeed very spiritual. One of those sages is David Bohm (Whose Holographic Universe has many adherents at the YerkesPrimateCenter where hard physiological proofs are found.) and here is a little of how he approached physics.

"In an interview in 1989 at the Nils Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, where Bohm presented his views, Bohm spoke on his theory of wholeness and the implicate order. The conversation centered around a new worldview that is developing in part of the Western world, one that places more focus on wholeness and process than analysis of separate parts.

Information contributes fundamentally to the qualities of substance. He discussed forms, fields, superconductivity, wave function and electron behavior. Wave function, which operates through form, is closer to life and mind... The electron has a mindlike quality." (1)

The early quantum physicists like Neils Bohr were ridiculed by those who could not comprehend the majesty of their attempts to explain our reality. The debunkers inductive reasoning which imposes direct inferential theory upon nature has caused a setback that science has yet to overcome. Despite their stated fear of religion these theories are in fact doing what the Dark Ages did to sincere seekers of truth. It was the dawning of a New Age which revived ancient Chaos Science. Our whole computerized creative and productive world is largely a function of these atom mysticists. In response to that epithet they have driven the message home by showing over and over again that most know-nothing scientists are in cahoots with ignorance or worse. Michio Kaku of 'Hyperspace' does it well.

These giants of intellect found the soul of the Mandukya Upanishads (Wigner) and the S-Matrix math in the Tao Te Ching (Capra). Heisenberg observed as the cat appeared, or did not, depending on whether Schrdinger was there to witness. All Zen aficionados were overjoyed to see the Western predilection for linear thinking in boxes was being changed from within. A far greater amount of possibility-thinking and real independent inquiry has resulted. All theatres of thought are now called post-Modern by experts in ivory towers who are usually wrong. Bohr said, A great truth has an opposite which is also true. A trivial truth has an opposite which is false.

The Club of Rome is doing a lot of good analysis of issues and the need for multi-disciplinarian principles in a new technological era. Here is something they say which I heartily approve of.

"Systems of education are less and less adapted to the new issues, to the new emerging global society we are presently involved in. New priorities force us to redefine the role of education, which should be conceived as a permanent learning process. Transmission of knowledge is no longer sufficient, and new objectives such as developing one's own potential and creativity, or the capacity of adaptation to change are becoming essential in a rapidly changing world.

The Club of Rome considers that education is both part of the global problematique and also an essential tool to become an effective actor in control of one's own life and within society. If there are "Limits to Growth", there are "No Limits to Learning" (titles of two Reports to the Club of Rome)." (2)

In the area of physics the Classical Electromagnetic Model or particles and force constructs, have given way to wave behavior models that allow harmonic interaction and affinity across space-time as I see it. There are some people who have such an ingrained or visceral response to mystical concepts that it makes one wonder how effective our propaganda paradigm that has waged war on enablement of the soul in each living thing has been. The space-time interval is only invariant in same frequency realms and astrophysicists know gravity is an instantaneous effect. Brian Greene is the first physicist with 'groupies' according to George Stephanopoulos, one time Clinton Press Secretary. Greene wrote the ELEGANT UNIVERSE a best-seller that explains String Theory and how it could answer some of the deepest aspects of human experience. He made a major contribution in 1992 that showed how the fabric of space could tear and repair itself. This is not possible according to relativity and its expression of the space/time continuum. The existence of anti-matter and 'black holes' are quite a conundrum for science that finds itself proving the mystics understandings - 'fast and furious'.

My premise at its worst is that we must understand the mystics even if they are wrong about reality. There will be little achieved by constantly negating whatever reality they have been able to see and there has been a lot of advancement in science that proves they were right. But when told that this line of reasoning is religious or airy-fairy I can only say if we do not know how the sages or great minds saw reality how can we expect to help make a new reality that is better? How can you call Pythagoras weird (for example) when he contributed so much? How can people be so silly when they know they cant do what he did? Is it ego that makes man so closed-minded? Here is a response to a physicist who sees (finally) that I have gathered the words of the top scientists, who agree with me. He seeks to rationalize the One and understand the ego which is a start at least.

Rational? Is that missing from the work of philosophers like Sartre who said 'Love is absent space'. No - what is missing is an appeal to reductive and gradualistic paradigm ego or the need for POWER above all else. But that need for power actually produces less power and plentitude.

I tell you this - you do not know consciousness or it's origin and you can find the best explanations in ancient writings and disciplines like the Sutras. It works!

Is what works rational? Not necessarily. Rational and religion or the anthropomorphing urge of ego is everywhere evident in non-cooperative mindsets.

Here is the way I could say it off the top of my head.

In the beginning there was energy in many dimensions. These dimensions gradually got in touch at some distance with information carried on attractive forces like gravity. These contacts grew and pathways formed - see my article called Affinity under those Google links or here. The pathways became lattices and vectors and valences of these energies which began to design ways to form new harmonizing potentials.

Laws of behavior and some kind of design began to actualize or manifest and over trillions of years a lot of knowledge and ways of creating became the way of the world or universes.

Consciousness came later and the soul is an outgrowth of this collective which directs us through the structures and lattices (helical and otherwise - time has a helical structure and seven layers too) in the likes of DNA.

Spiritual Healing - The Hidden Truth and Misconception  


Throughout history, what is portrayed in all religions as being the manifestation of prayer or miracles is in fact manifestation of our connection with the essence of our Soul and the manifestation of the power of spiritual healing. We have heard throughout the centuries about such miracles that have happened to people, and how they changed their lives. This has carried on until now when we still hear of these miracles in our time today. What would be the difference between a miracle that has been approved by a religion and one that has been manifested by a healer?

Why is it that at this point of our time and with all of the technological advancement we claim to have achieved as humans, we still approve of one particular or morally acceptable form of miraculous healing and disregard another? How does it stand in such a case where a particular healer belongs to a certain religion? Does his or her manifestation become a miracle? Also in certain ways there is no huge difference between the power of healing and the power of prayer if we really think about it. The same intention of sending healing thoughts is there, regardless of how we chose to label the procedure.

There are two types of healing, self-healing and spiritual healing. How much do we really understand the difference between the two? Can we refer to them as being a science? Or in such a case where science cannot explain or rationalize the manifestation itself, do we then find it would be easier to disregard it all together rather than investigating? Perhaps it is when something does not bring us much financial profit it then becomes worthless for us to investigate. Well it seems there are many question marks when it comes to the subject of healing and apparently with little answers.

The way I see it in terms of self-healing and spiritual healing, both forms are misrepresented and at the same time abused. On a personal level, on the medical level and on the government level, it seems we are very much unaware of the real benefit that comes from it.
Before going further into this and for some of you who do not know or understand what I am talking about, let us identify and define both forms of healing, from my own point of view of course!

Self-healing is the effect that a person can inflict upon themselves, in terms of a manifestation when bringing his or her state of mind, either physical, or emotional, into perfect harmony and balance with the universal flow of energies to get him or herself into normal state of being. We all have this power within ourselves even if we do not believe it is so. This can be practiced through praying or self-inflicted healing.

We know that someone who is a Spiritual Healer is someone who is normally referred to as being an instrument. This is so when souls from a different dimension to our own use the instruments body as a channel to perform their work of spiritual healing. These healing souls are sometimes called spirit doctors. They use their wisdom and knowledge from the universal flow of energies to manipulate a human being into a state of perfection. This is successful so long as no-one has been tampered with, in terms of having their body altered when having organs removed or by being operated upon. What is the cost of all of this? Well its FREE. So lets explore all factors involved here.
We will start with the healers themselves.

Who are those healers? A healer is a person that accepts the work of spirit souls or spirit doctors. The healer allows himself or herself to become an instrument for the wonderful work of spirit to be carried out through. To inform you, I personally am one of these healers. In my personal experience in working with healing for many years and being self taught by working with my guides, I do believe the maximum time and what I feel is necessary to provide the energy to someone is no more than 15 minutes. Even this length of time can be too long in certain cases. The reason is because healing usually takes effect according to the person who is receiving the healing them self.

When someone falls into the handwork of a healer, it is not a coincidence it is by choice unconsciously. Manifestation has to be carried out and healing will take place on other levels of our consciousness. It has to be done on a soul level, astral level, and subconscious level before it can ever manifest physically with that person. Those levels that we dont see and might not be even aware of can be worked out before that person even meets up with his or her healer. Their meeting then becomes a mere formality to allow changes to take effect on the physical level. All work is usually carried out during their sleep state, except for the physical and can be done in case of what is called absent or distant healing. With all of that said, no healing should take place outwith the persons Free Will of choice.

In our world of today, healing, just like anything else has been abused. Some healers are taking advantage of this gift by misrepresenting the benefits of it. It seems to have become a way of overly charging their patient financially and in some cases providing them with false hopes. When healing becomes a business, how do we know that healing is genuine after all? If the healing gift is used only as a means of survival for the healer where do we draw the line between what is a true healing and what is a mere attempt of making money based upon the needs of the person who has come to receive healing?

This circumstance is unfortunate for both parties involved here. The healers will pay the price for their actions of abusing the healing on a Soul level by creating Karma for themselves which will have to repaid, later on in their evolution. In terms of accepting money for healing, it is alright to accept being given a donation, but only at the patients own discretion.

Working with healing is the purest gift that a human being can achieve in one lifetime in terms of working with any form of Mediumship. I would like to make sure that you understand that it is not the power of the healer that is making the change in any situation it is the work of his or her assisted spirit doctors. So just how convinced are we when we see an advertisement asking us to spend $50 and we will be provided with a healing? Really, how effective is that healing going to be after all? It is the same as the Psychic Hotline or having a tarot reading over the phone? I once saw an advertisement in a local newspaper that required some people to work on one of these Psychic lines and it did state with or without experience. Experience does not matter after all because in the end, we are either open to these gifts, or we are not, but how effective are those readings going to be such a case as this?

Healers should not attempt to prescribe or go against any medical challenge. Rather, they should work in conjunction with the medical field in order to bring harmony to the patient. Most often, the medical community will take credit for the cure but that is far out from the truth in many instances. This is because in many cases the doctor has declared that they still cannot comprehend what has happened for their patient to return back to a normal state of health. In my opinion, recognition is sometimes a boost for our ego and personally as a healer, I feel I can do without that ego boost!

I believe the medical communitys main concern with regard to spiritual healing is they fear it as being a threat to their business. As we all know, being a doctor is a serious business and I personally do salute the doctors who perform operations for people who have been involved in accidents, war zones or any other dangerous place. These are miracle doctors in my opinion! Their work is driven by the compassion they feel toward their fellow man or women and they do deserve all the recognition in the world. Many times they are not recognized, but I believe that this is not as important to some as might be to some other doctors. A human soul becomes a mere number in todays society, regardless if you are rich or poor and are only passing your bill for the government or insurance collection at the end of the day.

Why is the medical community afraid to use some extra assistance to bring in harmony and health to their patients? By all means, if they need the recognition for curing the patient, well they can have the recognition and no harm will be done because I do not believe a true healer cares about being recognized in the first place. Their reward is beyond any recognition and I believe many healers know what I am talking about. There are so many healers who do prefer to work in the background without any recognition and without even being known.

Now what is Governments role in bringing their awareness of healing to a level of understanding? It is in their interest to look into this aspect of healing when all costs are increasing in terms of the Medicare. Different governments have a different understanding of this subject when regular people have little or no understanding about spiritual healing at all! There is no sufficient rational explanation of this work, even when attempting to look deeper into the matter. In some cases it is said to be the work of the devil! For Gods sake then we cant blame our Government for this!

It is a shame when someone in a government office places rules upon spiritual healing when they themselves are not even aware of its functionality. I believe their judgment in many cases is based upon their own personal belief system or according to their religion for example. In some governments restrictions and regulations are applied on healing. However, how can we dictate to a healer and tell him or her not to touch the person receiving the healing. In fact, most healing sessions can even happen in public. Is it classed as being dangerous and sexually abusive when a male healer touches a woman with her clothes on and in the same a male doctor touching woman who is undressed is alright? That is a double standard or am I wrong here?
Why there is no law on the way doctors should practice? I guess there is a contradiction somewhere in these matters! Doctors do have backup from associations and organizations and healers dont. Theres something to think about!

I do believe it is seen as threat for doctors if healers are used in hospitals. Why? So long as both the doctor and the healer are working for the benefit of the human soul they are trying to cure, there is no harm done. Governments should loosen up on their regulations toward the practice of healers to be fair toward everyone, and yes, there are many advantages for all governments from doing so. What I ask is for us not to be entirely dependent upon healers, but only for us to have an open mind and allow them to be consulted in hospitals. This should be a matter of choice from the patient them self as they have the right to their own Free Will!

Day after day from what we can see happening in the world, and being human souls we seem to have no right to choose for ourselves what we feel is best for us. All decisions seem to be made for us all, regardless if it was by a large corporation, a government, a religious group or just our society as a whole.

So we can see there is a problem on all sides and maybe we need to really evaluate the simple things in life one more time. From what we can see in our society, I think we do we have enough space to make changes.

Putting Spirit First: Goals For Your Soul  


"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Matt. 6:33

If you've ever set very many goals, you've probably had at least one goal that you just can't seem to reach. You can't seem to lose those last, stubborn five pounds. Or you can never seem to get caught up on your bills.

You are passionate about your goal. You read everything the experts say. You follow their advice to the best of your ability. Still, despite all your hard effort, something seems to be blocking your success. What could it

If you find yourself spinning your wheels, check to see if Spirit is your Number One Priority. Your relationship with Spirit will set the scene for all other relationships in your life. It may be time to sit down and set some clear goals for your soul.

Perhaps you've felt an urge to deepen your meditations or connect with your angels. Or maybe you've been meaning to learn a skill such as astral travel or aligning your chakras.

Spiritual goals are the most important, most effective, most powerful goals we can make. When you make spiritual goals your first priority in goal-setting, it puts the wind in your sails! When you put Spirit first, you are much more likely to succeed at your other goals. Here are 8 empowering thoughts to consider:

1. Spirituality is not in competition with "mundane life." It is the very source of it. You are on a spiritual journey whether you realize it or not. Your mind is the projector of your life movie, and your world is the screen. Not making a conscious decision about your soul - is still a decision. The spiritual world is not divided from the "real world." They are one and the same. We are each, always experiencing God.

2. The soul is a body too. It benefits from food, exercise, cleansing, and rest. Whether you want to start a Bible study group or awaken your kundalini, the key is to make a loving decision to raise your soul'sconsciousness. If you can find time to brush your teeth and comb your hair, you can find time for basics such as grounding, centering, and shielding.

3. Spiritual development is a very personal and individual experience. Seek the truth of your own experience to decide what is right for you. Who do you truly want to be? What race do you want to run in this life? If you don't decide for yourself, something or someone else will! Just don't forget to set goals for the afterlife as well as this one!

4. Perfection is relative to your frame of reference. Determine your frame of reference. What is heaven on earth to you? Look at where you've been and how far you've come. If you want to get somewhere, you have to know where you are now. Being fully aware of the now can make it a lot easier to avoid becoming attached to results.

5. Achieving any kind of goal requires endurance. A sharp,laser focus on your purpose can cut through the toughest of barriers. Masters know their purpose and have clarity about it. The greatest achievers write their goals down, along with a plan. This transforms a goal into commitment. There are action steps you can take today, this week, this month to bring you one step closer to your ideal.

6. Spiritual goals are not always that easy to measure. How will you know when you've achieved your goal? Spiritual progress tends to move in a circular fashion rather than alinear one. You know you are on the right track when you experience things "coming full circle" in your life. Deja vu, synchronicity, and a smoother life are signs that your consciousness is expanding.

7. Be sure to review your spiritual goals daily, weekly, or monthly. Whatever works best for you. Just remember to take stock of your accomplishments and give yourself rewards for sticking to your plan.

8. If you have the spark of life within you, which we all do, then you carry divine power within you. How that power is spent is your Divine Responsibility. Only YOU can use and develop your unique gifts! You are an emissary of heavenly light. Steward this light and see how easily the rest of your life falls into place!

Your creator lives within you and you live within your creator. So, don't just live like Heaven is within you, live like you are in Heaven!

Pranic Healing


Pranic healing encompasses a broad array of curative approaches, both ancient and modern, based on the notion that illnesses of consistency or mind involve an imbalance and/or blockage in the stream of full of life liveliness vigor. In ancient India, this vigour was known as prana, as it still is in the contemporary practice of yoga and Ayurvedic practice of medicine. Traditional Taiwanese music uses the term qi to describe this lively vim. Pranic healing seeks, by widely varying agency, to tone and equalize the pranic flowing.

as the figure of option therapies has mushroomed during the shoemaker's last several decades, the conception of prana/qi has become almost a common denominator among approaches that may otherwise seem wildly diverse. The belief in a fundamental spirit violence flowing done the human consistence (and, by extension, through with(p) all living things) is an ancient 1, common to many healing systems worldwide. More recently, many Western therapies rich person incorporated a similar construct. The of prana evolved thousands of days agone in India, apparently in connection with esoteric spiritual practices. A central in both yoga and Ayurveda (an ancient healing organisation), it is discussed in the earliest scripted sources for these disciplines--the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the ancient Hindu scriptures known as vedas.

As with prana, the origins of the of qi lost in the distant past. Acupuncture, which uses needles inserted at particular points to arouse the menstruation of qi, has been practised extensively in China for thousands of old age. Archaeologists wealthy person unearthed stone stylostixis needles dated to around 3000 B.C. The Nei Jing (or Classic of Internal Practice of medicine ), the oldest known text that discusses the theoretical basis of traditional Formosan medication, is believed to give birth been roughly 2,000 years ago .

Practitioners of pranayama, or respiration, believe that prana is moving when the human hint, which is a manifestation of universal prana, is flowing freely. When the organic structure's Department of Energy is blocked, this stagnation tin can lead to illness and disease. Because Ayurvedic medicinal drug considers prana a kind of nutrient that i toilet take in through and through the intimation, ventilation exercises play an important role in promotion in Ayurveda. Pranayama soothes the nervous scheme, induces relaxation, regulates respiration, and balances the hemispheres of the brain. The major technique of pranayama is alternate nostril eupneic. Over the cobbler's last century or so, more especially in recent decades, a identification number of mutually exclusive therapies deliver emerged that manipulate the physical structure and/or noninvasively energize points to promote , achieve healing, and tone up the critical effect.

Tai Chi Chuan the ancient path to stress free living


When I began practising Tai Chi in 1991 the thing that struck me about it was its power or at least the promise of its power. What I went on to witness and discover was that there was nothing mystical or particularly esoteric about the power of tai chi it was more just a case of doing it, following tai chis unique set of principles and just witnessing what arose within me. When I practice my form (sequence of movements) it is never exactly the same but it is always beneficial.

Tai Chi means "the supreme ultimate" and Chuan means, "fist" so Tai Chi Chuan is in fact a martial art despite its reputation for just being a gentle meditative exercise. When practiced as a martial art Tai Chi is both effective and powerful (but this takes a lot of practise to even glimpse especially when you learn that in Tai Chi, the main focus is to use the power of the mind in unison with the energy and power of the body to release force in whatever direction you want).

The benefits of Tai Chi are immense and include improved co-ordination, circulation, posture, balance and well-being. Because tai chi is practised slowly and with a relaxed focus the nervous system becomes calmer and so do you. This meditative effect gives you a clearer perspective mentally and in todays fast and hectic world this can only be a huge resource. In fact the stress relieving attributes are one of the main reasons why people start Tai Chi as it gives them a calm mind and real sense of physical emotional and spiritual health

Tai Chi started a long time ago so its had time to develop and evolve into what we see today. This slow process of change which has happened to tai chi over the centuries is mirrored in the way tai chi is practised i.e. at a meditative pace with no rush to complete its intricate and engrossing movements. The softness and flow of tai chi make you relax (you just cant help it!) but its a rejuvenating kind of relaxation. At the end of a Tai Chi class people are buzzing with Qi (life-force), as the practice encourages your energy to flow and tension and blockages just seem to dissolve away. It all sounds very blissful and beautiful, which it is but you do have to put a little effort in to get the results. Its hard to get your head around that something so graceful and elegant can be used for self defence too, but then again there is an old Chinese saying that the best fighters never fight i.e. if you have no enemies internally or externally then there is no need for conflict. The philosophy behind Tai Chi (Taoism) is really useful too and includes the theory that if you fight force with force any conflict will get worse. It teaches yielding and flexibility to overcome any situation. This can diffuse a situation leaving room for negotiation and dialogue. When you take something like that into your daily life then you have gained a distinct advantage. Yielding encourages listening and when you listen you gain more information and it is easier to see where someone is coming from. In the workplace such a strategy would create less stress for everyone!

Part of the physiological aspect of tai chi includes the effect it has on our brain, our lymphatic system and our joints. Recent neurological research has found that tai chi practice encourages the brain to perform more effectively. This is partly due to the brain receiving more oxygenated blood (as the breathing technique in tai chi improves lung capacity and elasticity) but also because the meditative, calming effect of tai chi changes the brains frequency from beta (active normal waking waves) to alpha (receptive between sleep and awake waves which are related to improved ability to learn and remember). The lymphatic system is partly responsible for detoxifying the blood and is stimulated by the gentle muscular work in tai chi. The soft relaxed movements of Tai Chi massage the lymph nodes improving their function and boosting the immune system. The joints of the body are often where aches and pains first creep in so maintaining healthy active joints is important at any age. Because the load bearing joints of the body are kept in strong alignment throughout Tai Chi and are never abused nor greatly impacted upon, their health and function is protected whilst the circulation of blood in and around the joints is increased.

All in all Tai Chi offers us a unique way to combat stress and learn new and valuable skills.

The Practical Power of the Shaman  

Spirit of shamanism brings harmony and magic into everyday life

Shamanism is a very practical spirituality. A modern-day shaman
could live next door to you and the only clues you might have
are that they get along well with people and animals and have a
green thumb with plants. Also, shamans have a knack for putting
people at ease and for saying and doing the right thing at the
right time. In his book, Urban Shaman, Serge Kahili King defines
a shaman as "a healer of relationships, between mind and body,
between people, between people and circumstances, between humans
and Nature and between matter and spirit."

If you have a taste of divine ecstasy, shamanism can teach you
how to ground it, how to bring it into your everyday life
through using your natural gifts and talents. Shamanism can
support you in translating that experience, that creative energy,
into physical form so it can benefit yourself and everyone
around you. The essence of shamanism is not an esoteric,
mysterious, ritualistic tradition which can only be practiced by
native peoples in a tribal environment. This ancient spiritual
perspective on life is a down-to-earth, pragmatic, realistic
way of living that anyone can use anywhere, anytime, including
in our modern world.

Currently across the planet, the sacred knowledge of the shaman
or wizard is being translated into everyday street language in
order to create more healthy, harmonious and enriching lives for
people. The spirit of shamanism is more of an open, flexible
attitude and approach to living than a rigid set of rules,
formulas and techniques. Applying the basic principles of
shamanism opens people to new possibilities and options for
dealing with modern daily challenges.

From Alaska to the Andes, from Tibet to Tanzania, shamanism is a
worldwide phenomenon. Virtually every religion has its roots in
shamanism, although shamanism is not a religion. It's a
perspective-a way of seeing all things as sacred. Shamanism does
not preclude any religion. It simply says that anyone can have a
direct experience of the divine without an intermediary. By
honoring the sacred essence of everyone and everything, one's
whole life can truly become a spiritual adventure.

Omens and signs

The shaman relates to every form of life as being alive, filled
with energy and always communicating something to us. The key is
in learning how to receive the communication. "Omens are a way
Spirit communicates with us in the physical world," states
shaman Ken Eagle Feather in Traveling with Power. "You can
decipher omens from virtually anything, but pay special
attention to unusual occurrences, whether it's the strange
behavior of birds, or conversations in which someone says
something that catches your attention in a special way, or when
a book falls off a shelf in front of you. You might find that
messages on billboards change right in front of you, so that
while others are reading anordinary advertisement, you end up
reading a message from Spirit. Be careful about being too strict
in your interpretations, though. Remember, you are looking for
guidance, not assurance. An omen might be the same for several
people, or it might mean several different things. It's up to
you to create your personal omen dictionary. This open-ended
response is called nonpatterning, and it provides the space for
Spirit to communicate with you."

Using personal experience as the means through which wisdom is
gleaned (rather than through reading, thinking or analyzing),
the shaman presents opportunities where people begin to sense a
real, interactive connection with everything else that exists,
even those things believed to be inanimate such as rocks,
plastic, glass or metal.

Everything is energy

The basis of shamanistic creation, healing and transformation
has always been the knowledge that the essential nature of
everything is energy. Modern science, specifically quantum
physics has only recently concluded that every living thing is
made of energy. The reason that walls and rocks appear solid is
because they vibrate at a low, dense rate. We know that pictures
travel invisibly through the air and arrive on our TV screens.
Is it such a stretch to open to the possibility that everything
has an invisible energy within it? And that communication can be
transmitted through this energy?

Shamans utilize the knowledge that everything is energy to
create in their world by using their conscious attention to
direct the flow of energy within all forms of life. Energy flows
where attention goes. Indeed, scientists are now reporting that
the outcome of their experiments are significantly affected by
the beliefs and thoughts of the person conducting the experiment.

Since we come to this planet to evolve our soul within the
paradox of this world of polarity (light and dark, inside and
outside, body and spirit), we must develop the skill to play
consciously and creatively with duality. If we are truly
perceptive, we can see how the energies of each opposing
polarity are serving us. If we see how we are at effect of all
these dualistic energies, then we can make a choice of what to
keep and what to eliminate. This is an act of magic. True
magicians are those who can influence energy, whether it is
inside them or in the world outside them. If we have learned how
energy moves and behaves, we have opened ourselves up to our
true selves. This is what the paradoxes of our world teach us.
Shamans know that humans are determiners of spirit, and the
choices, decisions and priorities that we set fashion the
reality of the world in which we live.


When shaman use their ability to "see" the underlying energy
dynamics of situations and relationships, they are able to "see"
cause and effect connections and forces that are not visible
when viewing the circumstances superficially, i.e., looking only
at the outer form. Perceiving the energy dynamics of life events
reveals new alternatives and possibilities not previously

"The art of the (shaman) is to be able to guide, to be able to
illuminate the path in such a way that the person hooks on to a
greater experience-that of freedom..." Eagle Feather shares.
This allows people the freedom to move beyond limits of past
perceptions into the realm of options, fresh creativity and
natural magic.

A shaman would "see," for example, that the anger of a
supermarket clerk resulted from the clerk's inability to express
their feelings. The shaman could "see" how these emotions were
adversely affecting not only the clerk, but the people in line.
Consequently, a shaman may choose to engage the angry clerk in a
friendly, relaxing conversation in order to shift the situation
into flow and harmony.


We have many powers within us that we can learn to use for our
own benefit and for the benefit of others. From the shamanistic
point of view, all power comes from within. Power comes from
authorship (authority). Shamans become the authors of the
creations in their world by freeing themselves of programmed and
conditioned perceptions. In moving beyond customs, manners,
rules and techniques, the shaman embraces the practicality of "
What works, works." The shaman has little concern for how
something works, only that it produces the results that one
intends. Shamans are the most flexible, utilitarian and
efficient authors of their world. They take the shortest,
quickest route to their goals, even if the path tramples on
their own concepts or beliefs.

One way people can experience this power is to look for proof in
their own lives. Take love, for example. One way to increase the
presence and power of love in a person's life is to decrease the
presence and power of judgment. Shamans notice that their
attention cannot be in both places at the same time, and,
therefore choose where they want to spend their energy. To spend
energy judging that they harmed someone or that another person
caused them harm, would be a misdirection and waste of energy
for a shaman.

Eagle Feather explains more about the true nature of power, "
Anyone looking for power over others or control over material
processes is probably going to be disappointed by the teaching,
which essentially define power as the ability to free oneself
from one's own perceptions and habitual patterns. The message
seems to be that once you align with the energy, you're no
longer the master. Spirit is."


A shaman is a bridge between this world and the invisible world
of the spirit. A shaman is very anchored, very present in this
world. Being so centered and grounded, a shaman can assist a
person to travel into dimensions and see things from a much
bigger perspective. Then people can heal because there is more
room for them to expand and open to fresh new realities. This
expanded awareness from the shaman creates a strong foundation
for people to awaken to their own healing power within. The goal
of the shaman is always to support the awakening of the soul.
The shaman acts as an anchor so the person can reach their own
depth and move through their own cellular transformation.

Shaman Frederick Wolf concurs. "People really know how to heal
themselves. It's an illusion to think that someone is going to
come and heal them. But what will happen is, when they feel the
support and safety that the shaman can hold for them, they will
have faith enough to go into that place inside of them that
knows how to heal. It's not some magical thing that happens. It'
s very natural."

Way of Living

Shamanism is a way of living on the altar of Mother Earth. It's
a way to live in balance on the earth, a way of finding not only
peace with yourself personally, but peace with nature and your
environment. Shamanism is bringing the two worlds together: your
inner world-"your heart"-with your outer world. It's important
to be balanced, to be grounded in both worlds. We should be able
to go anywhere and be at home, whether it's in a cave or a big

Shamanism is a pathway that can help us to realize the
sacredness and magic within and all around us. Birds that soar
into the heavens, trees whose roots reach deep into the earth,
everything in nature reflects an aspect of our souls. As the
poet Rumi said, "You will see stars and moons mirrored in your
being." Shamanism is letting go of our limited ideas and
concepts of who we are. As we abandon our illusions of
separateness, we open to the beauty and simplicity of our true
nature-our connectedness with all of life.

Pranic Therapy



Pranic Therapy - An Introduction

Pranic Therapy is an alternative system of Medicine using therapy with the Universal Stream of Consciousness, the Cosmic Prana.

Pranic Therapy can be effectuated by proper knowledge of the psycho- physical organism, physical and mental discipline and opening all our channels to the Cosmic Prana. This is normally effected in seven steps

The Seven Stages of Pranic Therapy

  1. Knowledge of the Psychosomatic Machine
  2. Regulation of Sleep, food & Exercise
  3. Relaxation
  4. Attunement to Biorythms ( Circadian Rhythms, Solar & Lunar Rhythms )
  5. Removing mental blocks ( Difficult due to Repression )
  6. Overcoming Prajnaparadha ( Fault of Awareness due to misuse of our cognitive & conative functions)
  7. Opening the system to the Cosmic Prana ( Opening all channels to the Divine Shakti )


With the advent of rapid industrialization, urbanization and the breakdown of family life after the Second World War, social life in the West became tense & stressful. The spread of materialistic ideas and ideals and the erosion of faith in Morality & the Law Divine & the social disturbance caused by the Vietnam War brought a sense of futility & meaninglessness in the Western psyche.The limitations of the Western system of chemotherapy & adverse side-effects of antibiotics, sedatives and certain other drugs and the disillusionment with the promises of science & technology made millions turn to Oriental philosophies, divine practices & systems of therapy.

The response from the Orient was benevolent. Favoured by the social revolution that swept through several countries in the West in the 1960s, these countries, especially the US, came to be flooded with Gurus and Yogis. Yoga, TM, Reiki - all attained world-wide popularity.

Three Modern Movements

As a byproduct three modern movements came into being.

They are Neo-humanisn, interreligious dialogue and Holistic Health. The term 'Neo-humanism' refers to a basic change in modern man's attitude towards himself and his fellowmen which is characterised by

  1. the recognition of the essential goodness of man
  2. focus on existential problems
  3. striving for higher transcendental experience.

The contribution of Ramakrishna Movement to inter-faith dialogue was immense. Other movements like Maharshi International University & Self Realisation Fellowship contributed to this change in the human mindset.

Holistic Health

Holistic Health refers to a modern movement which regards health as a dynamic state of the total human being. Although the symptoms of a disease may be found in certain tissues or organs, health is not a mere removal of such symptoms by the treatment of the affected tissues or organs, but a state of multidimensional experience, according to this perspective. The mind, body & environment are in a state of dynamic interaction & the maintenance of this interaction in an optimum state of efficiency is what health means. In other words " To be healthy is to have the ability to live with full use of our faculties and be vigorous, alert & happy to be alive, even in old age, despite an occasional bout of illness." This " operational health" has been defined as wellness. It is a sense of all-round well-being as contrasted with illness. .

The greatest aspect of holistic health is its recognition of the role played by mind in health. " Mind is omnipotent " said Freud & he had shown that the Unconscious played a key role in causing certain diseases which came to be described as psychosomatic diseases. He looked upon the Unconscious chiefly as the repository of negative emotions. His early disciple Carl Jung expanded the concept of the Unconscious to make it include good emotions and even spiritual urges. Adler, another disciple of Freud showed that the ego could alter unconscious behaviour.

The connecting link between the body and mind was not clear. The work of the Canadian endocrinologist Hans Selye brought the much needed connecting link. In his classic work " The Stress of Life " Selye showed that mental stress was the root cause of several types of common illness such as hypertension, hyperacidity etc. The 'stressor' (the original source of stress ) excites the hypothalamus in the brain. This vital organ which controls the autonomic nervous system activates the pituitary to secrete the stress hormone ( known as ACTH ) which stimulates the secretion of several hormones and steroids (including the well known, adrenaline or epinephrine). More sugar is released into the blood & BP is increased as a result of these changes. According to Selye, stress is unavoidable in life. ( The emotional centre in the brain, when upset, stimulates the oxintic cells to secrete more hydrochloric acid in the stomach which leads to hyperacidity.) When it goes beyond a certain tolerance level ( which varies from person to person ) the system breaks down resulting in illness.

To the scientific picture of body-mind interrelationship given above, certain new concepts were added. One was the idea that if negative emotions could cause illness, positive emotions can cause "wellness". The attention of medical experts & the imagination of the public was captured by this innovative idea when Normal Cousins, editor of Saturday Review, published a convincing account of his recovery from a debilitating & incurable disease of the connective tissue. The patient's understanding of the disease & his active participation in the recovery process was highlighted by his case.

The most difficult and controversial aspect of holistic health is another idea that by creating proper awareness within himself man could exercise a certain degree of voluntary control over the healing processes taking place in his body. After the aftermath of Pavlov's demonstration of conditioned reflexes, another Russian scientist K M Bykov and his colleagues showed in 1924 that several involuntary processes such as regulation of body heat, heart rhythm, production of urine, BP etc which were mediated by the autonomic nervous system could be brought under voluntary control. The above finding was corroborated later during experiments conducted on animals under 'operant' (voluntary)conditioning. Hundreds of people found that they could bring under control their heart rhythm, brain waves etc with the help of the biofeedback technique. Indian Yogis in the West also demonstrated that they could alter metabolic rate, heartbeat, body temperature etc simply by their will power, without the use of any biofeedback instruments.

More information about Transcendental Philosophy & Yoga can be had from http://www.zodiaccomputers.com/Html/yoga.htm

Holistic health practioners invaded the scene at this juncture. They showed that not only certain organs but the working of the whole system such as the digestive system, the respiratory system, circulatory system etc ( known as the Systems concept ) could be regulated simply by changing one's life-style & affinities. It was claimed that even diseases such as cancer could be cured or held in check be creating strong faith & the right type of consciousness.Despite the exaggeration and the propaganda which accompanied these claims, the basic idea that man can consciously regulate involuntary and unseen physiolo- gical processes came to be accepted as a fact by the medical community.

Various meditation techniques like Transcendental Meditation, Zen, Yoga were becoming popular in the West in those days. Apart from the spiritual benefits, (In Transcendental Meditation, the existence of a fourth major state of Consciousness called Transcendental Consciousness was proved by Dr Keith Wallace in his Phd Thesis ) practical Yoga teachers showed that Meditation also produced other beneficial effects such as reduction of tension, lowering of BP, relaxation of muscles, increase of concentration & work efficiency & even increase of immunological resistance to diseases. As a result, some form of Meditation has become an essential part of most holistic health programmes.( Dr Harold Bloomfied says that TM can be used as an adjunct to psychiatric practice.)

The success of Acupuncture, herbology etc which came to be recognised as ' Alternative Medicine " , lent much support to the holistic health position. Two great discoveries strengthened this position. One was the discovery of 'biological clocks' in nature and the existence of biorhythms in the human body. The other discovery was that the brain produced certain neuro- modulators called endorphins which have the property of reducing pain. The production of these natural painkillers is influenced by our thoughts and endorphins are produced when our EEG brain waves are in an alpha state ( 8.5 cycles per sec).

What is Homeopathy?


Homeopathy is a non-toxic system of medicine used to treat a wide variety of health concerns.

It is based on the Law of Similars and potentization. Basically, the Law of Similars is the premise that because exposure to a given substance can cause specific symptoms in someone who is healthy, then that substance given as a homeopathic remedy will stimulate the bodys own curative powers to overcome similar symptoms during illness.

A common example used to describe this effect is that of the person chopping an onion ~ When a healthy person chops an onion they usually get watery eyes, and a a runny nose. They may even experience sneezing or coughing, from exposure to the active substances in the onion.

The homeopathic remedy, Allium cepa, made of potentized red onion, can help the body overcome a cold or allergy attack in which the person has similar symptoms (watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, coughing.)

Even though the symptoms were not caused by exposure to an onion, the remedy made from the onion can help the body overcome them, because the symptoms are similar.

Is Homeopathy Effective?

Millions of people have used homeopathic remedies to treat every conceivable type of ailment and symptom. Despite misconceptions, homeopathy is just as scientific as allopathic medicine.

Homeopathy does not base its effectiveness on animal experiments which have little relevance to humans, and prescribing is not based on empirical, or accidental discovery of effects, but on a rational, systematic observation of the effects of remedies on healthy and sick people.

What are the Advantages of Homeopathy?


Homeopathy enjoys an excellent reputation in part because it is given in such minute doses that it can be safely used to treat anyone. Pregnant women, new born babies, children and weak or elderly people may all use the appropriate dosages of homeopathic remedies without dangerous side effects. Homeopthic doses of certain herbs are appropriate for certain individuals (like colicky babes,) when a standard herbal dosage would be too strong.


Homeopathy does not use synthetic substances, but relies on the healing properties inherent in plants, minerals, and animal substances. These substances are used in their whole, natural state, not as isolated chemicals.


Homeopathy is not based on 'fad' research. Homeopathic remedies do not go in and out of fashion because they are based on indications for specific symptoms rather than on 'opposites'.

Easy to Take

Most homeopathic remedies have a very mild, sweet taste and are meant to disolve under the tongue.

Even very small children can take them, which is very handy.

They come in small bottles that can be easily carried with you.

Understanding Potencies

Homeopathic remedies are prepared through a process called potentization. Potentization involves a series of systematic dilutions and successions (a forceful shaking action).

Potentization removes all risk of chemical toxicity while activating a remedy substance and enabling it to affect the body therapeutically.

The more dilutions and succussions a substance undergoes, the higher the potency will be. Higher potencies of homeopathic remedies (anything higher than 12C) have been diluted past the point that molecules of the original substance would be measurable in the solution.

Homeopathic potencies are designated by the combination of a number and a letter (for example, 6X or 30C).

The number refers to the number of dilutions the tincture has undergone within a series to prepare that remedy.

The letter refers to the proportions used in each dilution of the series (the Roman numeral X means 10, and the Roman numeral C means 100), as well as the number of succussions the vial of solution undergoes in each successive stage.

Choosing the Appropriate Remedy

A key element in treating successfully with homeopathy is selecting the right remedy.

It is best to farmiliarize yourself with homeopathic remedies before you need them so you can have a vague idea in mind of what remedy may be called for.

Get yourself a good book like, The Complete Homeopathy Handbook: A Guide to Everyday Health Care, by Miranda Castro to have on hand.

Basically, when looking for a remedy you want to consider both physical and psychological symptoms.

Physical Symptoms

Homeopathic remedies promote a return to normal body function, and can be of help in almost any physical symptom or condition. Though they their work on a subtle level, they ultimately affect the chemical, cellular, and structural health of the organism.

Psychological Symptoms

Psychological states are a crucial piece of the symptom-puzzle. Even when treating a purely physical ailment,homeopathy considers the emotional response of the individual to be of prime importance. Improvement of an emotional state is one way to monitor the effectiveness of a remedy.
