Buddha and Mother Earth

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.” Shakyamuni Buddha (Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.) I have found it perplexing when different Buddhist lineages have frowned on shamanic connections to Mother Earth. The shamanic tradition of Bon Buddhism started before Buddha`s time. However, when I learned more about Buddha, I was surprized to learn that the Earth figures prominently in the story of how

Dreams, Diet and Allergies

"All human knowledge takes the form of interpretation." Walter Benjamin Last night, I had a number of disturbing dreams about food.  In one dream, I dropped a plate of wheat crackers on the floor.  Then, someone handed me a plate with a large piece of lettuce on it.  However, the lettuce had a black smear of rotting sauce on it.  Further along in the dream, I found myself riding a bicycle in traffic and was cycling up a bridge.  The traffic stopped and I couldn`t understand why.  I moved

Hypnosis: Meditation with a Purpose

"Anybody can pilot a ship when the sea is calm." Navjot Singh Sidju Meditation and Hypnosis are essentially the same thing.  With meditation, you're learning to focus your mind to achieve a state of calm, heightened awareness or perhaps healing.  With hypnosis, a hypnotherapist assists you in focusing your mind to achieve a specific result, such as quitting smoking, losing weight, or boosting your self esteem.  With both meditation and hypnotherapy, the process involves arriving at a theta or

Heart …to Heart …to Heart

"The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart."  Buddha Four days ago, I discovered that new scientific evidence suggests our hearts communicate with one another energetically (through electromagnetic field interactions) by transmitting emotional and intuitive signals.  Of course, this is not new.  Jesus transmitted Divine Light through his heart and the ripple effect became global.  Healing your own body, heart and spirit will heal others simply because our hearts communicate in this

Stephen Hawking’s Prediction

The WONDERFUL thing about the future is that it's not written in stone.  We create our lives instant by instant, based on our thoughts, feelings,  and actions.  When you allow yourself to envision whatever represents to you, in any given scenario, a picture of your ideal reality - where you are at peace, inspired, joyful, creative,  loving and loved, then that life becomes effortless and the challenges exciting.  When you can see, feel, hear, taste, and smell your preferred reality, your

Profound Experiences

Meditation is one way.  In previous posts, I have described different meditation techniques. At the Monroe Institute, meditation combined with different formulas of sound will raise your vibration and likely take you into an incredible and life changing experience. May I suggest

More On The ‘Light’ Side

“As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being." Karl Jung GENEALOGY A little girl asked her mother, "How did the human race appear?" The mother answered, "God made Adam and Eve and they had children and so was all mankind made." Two days later the girl asked her father the same question. The father answered, "Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved." The confused girl returned to her mother and

2012 – How to Make the Shift Now

How to Make the Shift to Higher Consciousness? Meditate! Dr. Herbert Benson of the Harvard Medical School studied the effects  of meditation on the metabolism of Tibetan Buddhist Monks. With respect to  oxygen consumption, he reported that the monks decreased their metabolism  upwards of 64%. This was the largest decrease of consumption of oxygen ever  recorded. Benson developed something called the “relaxation response,” which he  described as “a physiological state opposite to stress.” His

How to Make the Shift to Higher Consciousness? Go Inside Yourself Q. How do you go inside yourself? A.  Put yourself in the present moment.  Relax.  Breathe.  Stop thinking.   Stop feeling.  Listen.  Embrace the stillness of the divine.
