Hold the Vibration !

Hold the vibration , hold the vibration … of your highest joy and excitement and “everything” else will take care of itself.

When you hold that vibration … the world around you , the universe around you , what we call physical reality , what we call non physical reality , or “Anything” we can experience as the witnessing presence , as a fractal of all that is … “must” manifest accordingly , it HAS NO CHOICE !

Even main stream science with it’s quantum physics now acknowledges that “Matter” is just a by product of consciousness , it is subject to consciousness, think double slit experiment.

Consciousness truly is the only substance in the universe , of course it depends on your definitions ,as everything does, and my definition of consciousness is the source, presence, all that is , the one and so on , all of these pretty much useless words that we have of describing something that has no definition , that cannot be defined … but we try …what else we gonna do for …eternity ! Reality is simply consciousness acting on it self ! We are holograms within holograms within ….dreams within dreams , we are literally dream material , and here is where the magic comes in , here is where the masters, shamans ,wizards, elite , and lovers of the esoteric all gain ground over the still unconscious more>>>...

Intervention Theory : Against All Odds

Apocalypse How: If you don’t know what intervention theory is , essentially it is the idea that extraterrestrials intervened , broke the prime directive if you will and have manipulated the so called “Natural Evolution ” of sentient life on planet earth.

The general consensus is they did this via direct genetic manipulation or inbreeding with humans and followed up with a very long and still continuing process of social engineering… to what end …yes that is the question!

No matter what the subject matter , whether it’s alternative history or alternative energy , we always end up asking about our true origins … and we end up at … Intervention theory.

However …from there it branches off into three flavors, either its good , bad or a combination of both. On the negative side , the race that broke this prime directive , what the bible called the Nephilim , what some call the Annunaki , these beings are the Origins of Evil itself , because they are not human , they exploit us and the planet for their agenda , there are many variation of this theme and why they are here and what they are doing , one only needs to do some googling and your trip down the rabbit hole is more>>>...

Thoughts ... to get you ... Thinking #44

The character of greatness must be measured in two ways, else the measurement is flawed.

First, and by far most popular of all, is by one's ability to succeed in times of trial where others may fail.

But of no less importance, and perhaps foundational to any form of greatness, is one's willingness to start over in spite of failure, when success seems farthest away.

Carbon Copy World

This phenomenal illustration by UK Illustrator Neil Hague pretty much sums up what is going on in our existence here on earth. 

Everything we see around us is a carbon copy of the original earth plane. Don't ask me how it has been done, because I don't have the mind capacity to perceive such a feat. However, I do have an awareness that it is our consciousness which has been copied too, we are a clone of our original consciousness which has been trapped in these limited sensory fields. I gather from my own experiences of seperateness that we are not really in the body at all. We are linked to effectively a virtual reality world. The film 'The Matrix' was very much close to the mark, in my opinion. It is not a new realisation I discuss here, but something that has been written on countless blogs and web sites all over the world. I digress. I had to do so to produce a comprehension of our reality.

Living in a carbon copy world does not mean that the original earth is like this. On the contrary, the designer of this carbon copy world has added its own intentions into the mix. This was the purpose of the hacking. To create an existence where this being is the creator, or the god of this world and universe. It is playing the role of the almighty. To be worshipped and thanked for its hacked creation. The fact we have religion on this world, and a distorted sense of reality, plus a deluge of strange memories of a 'better earth' is an indication of the sorry mess our cloned consciousness finds itself in. There is no easy solution or a simple means of escaping this prison reality. That is the problem we all face. Sadly. I wish I had the answers and I could put them down here. It would be fantastic to instigate a prison break. But no ... the creator of this carbon copy is clever. But not that clever. There is a change afoot which it did not account for - Matthew James

Recognising Those Repeating Life Cycles

How many of the life experiences you are currently having to negotiate are actually a re-hash of something you've failed to deal with somewhere in your past? 

It's the new cover, but same contents routine, right? Welcome to the material plane. The astral pool of thought forms. Those ripples you are entangled in can last an entire life time. You see its the routine that the universe is a curious consciousness, it wants to experience everything it can. You are those tiny, tiny globules of mercury that have been separated from the big universal globule. You are not forgotten. You are still contributing to the universal consciousness, and its learning curve. In its book of rules, there are no mistakes and no wrong turnings. Whatever we experience, is important to the bigger picture. Sadly though, as seemingly nothing more than the minute fibres in the tapestry, we don't necessarily like the experiences we are called on to keep experiencing. 

Once you realise, and recognise the repeating cycles, apparently you move on to the next series of new experiences. That is what is written in the book of rules. But does this actually happen? Are we able as human beings to recognise those patterns in our lives and actually change our lives? This world is a thought form. Our experiences are dependent on our thoughts and our perceptions. So technically it is possible to change the path that lies ahead, by changing how we are thinking. Here comes the million dollar question ... if we are stuck in the same thoughts and are casting the same experiences into our mind pool, we are not going to move on right? Right. We develop an attitude to how we perceive our outside world. If that perception hasn't changed since we were children, or teenagers, then it is possible that the cycle of experiences we started back then are still around us. 

We must therefore scrutinise our lives to the Nth degree in order to see the spider's web we have been wandering across. All the left turns, the right turns and the intersections. We must therefore learn to acknowledge those repeating trends in our live where we are not dealing with a decision right, or we are making the same mistake over and over again. These weakest links in our life chain are what hold us back, and are what keep us locked in the same experiences. It is not an easy undertaking to execute this process, but it is possible to move forward through these experiences. The universe is not likely to assist us, as it is after all happy with whatever experience we are having. It is in truth down to ourselves to change. There has to be a deep desire to move forwards, and an ability to change our current thought processes and perceptions. That is not an easy thing to do - Matthew James

Disarming the Know-It-All

Daily OM: Most of us have encountered a person in our lives who can accurately be referred to as a know-it-all. This person seems to know everything about anything that gets brought up and tends to dominate the conversation. They don’t take well to being questioned, and they have a hard time ever admitting that they were wrong.

Being around a know-it-all is inevitably tiring because there is no shared energy between the two of you. Rather, you become an audience member to this person’s need to be the center of attention. Attention and respect are probably the two things this person most longs for, and at some point in their lives, they learned that knowing it all was the way to get those needs met. Over time, they have become stuck in this pattern, regardless of the fact that it is no longer working. They may feel afraid of the experience of listening, being receptive, or learning something new, because it’s so more>>>...

The Inquisitorial Roots of the Insane War on Natural Medicine

Waking Times: In case you’re not aware, there is a not-entirely-covert war being waged by mainstream medicine (ably funded by Big Pharma) against all forms of natural medicine. Anything that non-toxically and non-invasively stimulates or capitalises on the body’s own programmed and innate healing mechanisms is not to be tolerated. Not only is it not to be tolerated, but it is to be attacked as viciously as (in)humanly possible, demonized, and crushed forever more.

Have you ever wondered just how far back this antipathy and irrational fear and loathing extends?

Some of you might point to the Rockefeller family and the incredible job they have done in destroying the reputations of all forms of natural medicine, as well as crushing all competitors using every (despicable) method possible. You’d be right, of course, in acknowledging their role, however, the ancient mental programs – “legacy programs” – that inhabit such imbalanced people and lead them to act in such tyrannical and violent ways are much older than David Rockefeller. He merely inherited them from a bygone age.

How much older are we talking? Remember a little thing called the middle ages? Yeah, we can trace these predatory mental programs and agendas at LEAST that far back in time – right back to the Inquisition. Those were the heady days of witch hunting, mass torture, and Satan lurking around every more>>>...

Songs That Inspired Me #1

I will begin this series of songs with SILENT LUCIDITY by Queensryche. This particular song has become very synonymous for me with my own spiritual awakening. In 1991, when this song was released as a single, I can remember the mystery and the magic of a very intense and powerful spiritual transformation. When I first heard this song, on the radio (The Friday night rock show), I could relate to the comprehension of dream control. It was one of the many songs in this period, that still remind me of that incredible awakening in my life - Matthew James

Universal Timing

Daily Om: Nature’s natural rhythms orchestrate when day turns to night, when flowers must bloom, and provides the cue for when it is time for red and brown leaves to fall from trees. As human beings, our own inner rhythm is attuned to this universal sense of timing. Guided by the rising and setting of the sun, changes in temperature, and our own internal rhythm, we know when it is time to sleep, eat, or be active. While our minds and spirits are free to focus on other pursuits, our breath and our heartbeat are always there to remind us of life’s pulsing rhythm that moves within and around us.

Moving to this rhythm, we know when it is time to stop working and when to rest. Pushing our bodies to work beyond their natural rhythm diminishes our ability to renew and recharge. A feeling much like jet lag lets us know when we’ve overridden our own natural rhythm. When we feel the frantic calls of all we want to accomplish impelling us to move faster than is natural for us, we may want to breathe deeply instead and look at nature moving to its own organic timing: birds flying south, leaves shedding, or snow falling. A walk in nature can also let us re-attune is to her organic rhythm, while allowing us to move back in time with our own. When we move to our natural rhythm, we can achieve all we need to do with less more>>>...

There Is Growing Evidence that Our Universe Is a Giant Hologram

Motherboard: If a friend told you that we were all living in a giant hologram, you’d probably tell him to lay off the kush. But incredibly, physicists across the world are thinking the same thing: That what we perceive to be a three-dimensional universe might just be the image of a two-dimensional one, projected across a massive cosmic horizon.Yes, it sounds more than a little insane. The 3D nature of our world is as fundamental to our sense of reality as the fact that time runs forward. And yet some researchers believe that contradictions between Einstein’s theory of relativity and quantum mechanics might be reconciled if every three-dimensional object we know and cherish is a projection of tiny, subatomic bytes of information stored in a two-dimensional Flatland.

“If you asked anyone twenty years ago how many dimensions our world has, most of us would answer 'three spatial dimensions plus time,'" he said. "The holographic principle would mean that this is actually a matter of perspective.” more>>>...

Doing Our Best

Daily OM: We often come into contact with the idea that our best isn’t good enough, as if this were actually possible. If you examine this notion, you will begin to see that it doesn’t make much sense. Your best is always good enough, because it comes from you, and you are always good enough. You may not be able to deliver someone else’s idea of the best, but the good news is that’s not your burden. You only need to fulfill your own potential, and as long as you remain true to that calling, and always do your best to fulfill your purpose, you don’t need to expect anything more from yourself.

It’s easy to get tangled up with the idea of trying to be the best—the best parent, the best employee, the best child, or best friend. If we try to be the best, we run the risk of short-circuiting our originality because we are striving to fit into someone else’s vision of success. In addition, if everyone is striving for the same outcome, we lose out on creativity, diversity, and visionary alternatives to the way things are done. On another note, there is nothing wrong with wanting to improve, but examining where this feeling comes from is important because wanting to be better than others is our ego coming into more>>>...

The Gympie Pyramid: Evidence of an Ancient Civilisation in Australia?

New Dawn: The Gympie Pyramid near the town of Gympie in Queensland, Australia has long been a source of fascination for people from around the world as well as Australia, and the subject of a great many claims about its origin and true purpose.

Archaeologist Greg Jefferys, who has worked on the pyramid, refers to it as “a serious, famous and unexplained archaeological anomaly.” Unfortunately, academia and the government dismiss the pyramid on the grounds that it is a nineteenth century or even more recent construction for the purpose of growing grapes, ignore evidence to the contrary and refuse to conduct an excavation which would settle the matter.

What is known as the Gympie Pyramid is the rounded eastern end of a sandstone ridge north of the town of Gympie that had stone terraces cut into the sides, giving it a pyramidal shape. It is not a pyramid in the Egyptian or South American sense. The pyramid is approximately 5 km from the centre of Gympie, and is located north of the town on the Tin Can Bay road.

Its interior remains unknown and has been a source of speculation, and there are believed to be three or four entrances, some blocked, leading into it. The pyramid is 30.4 metres (100ft) high and has six stone terraces varying from 10 metres wide at the bottom to two metres wide towards the top, and incorporate some natural rock features. Stone for many of the terraces has been shaped, and squared and some of the larger stones used would be extremely more>>>...

Magick Journal for 27th September 2016

It's been a very satisfying week. A culmination of a sense of well-being which I've been carrying really since March this year, when I returned to the UK for the first time in 10 years. It had been great to see old places and old faces; to retrace steps I'd not really taken since my emigration to the Southern Hemisphere in 2002. 

It was fantastic to return again to the UK in July/August. Even better to re-establish old connections and to negotiate new avenues that will effect further returns to the UK in 2017. It has changed the whole face of the life tapestry I see before me. 

Back in February this year, I made my last appearance on the Australian TV program Psychic TV.  Throughout the year there had been many touch and go situations with regard to the popular programs return. It effectively had no channel to be broadcast on with the collapse of 4 ME. Then came the light at the end of the tunnel when I received a phone call prior to my 2nd UK trip this year in July. I had to keep my lips sealed and say nothing to anyone until it was safe to do so! Throughout my 5 week trip to the UK the sense of well-being was growing more and more. Energetic recharges at Castlerigg Stone Circle and Long Meg & Her Daughters increased the frequency of my subtle bodies, releasing so many accumulated toxins. I felt myself really ready now for what lay ahead. I was ready to make my return to the challenging environment of the Australian Psychic industry; a very competitive world to say the least. 

No sooner had we touched back down in Australia, three weeks ago (It seems much longer than that), than I was thrust back into the public arena with my participation in the very enjoyable CPC Expo in Canberra after three busy days of private readings at home. I had barely time for jetlag or tiredness with three full days of readings and two stage appearances. Its been full on ever since, its no rest for the wicked they say! 

Then came the weekend of  24th & 25th September 2016 (Last weekend). PTV Australia made is debut on Australian TV, on Channel 7 TWO. PTV Australia is Psychic TV reborn. The evening's theme was that of the rising phoenix, a perfect totem for what is a seemingly impossible feat! The show is back up and running. A fantastic occurrence. I made my return to the show in the early hours of Sunday 25th September 2016 ... the show time was 1AM to 4AM. I had so much energy and so much adrenaline, it wouldn't have mattered what time it was that the live show was on. It was so satisfying to be back at the desk, before the cameras. It had been 7 long months since the last time. I returned to the studio 24 hours later in the early hours of Monday 26th September 2006 for what was my 96th show on PTV. I've been at the desk through all of its 4 'incarnations' since its inception 5 years ago. I'm due back in the studio in the 2nd week of October 2016.

So here I am a few days later, its past midnight on the evening of 27th September 2016 and I'm busily re-establishing a Magickal Journal which was once a fairly regular feature on A Light In The Darkness. There is much for me to write about in all seriousness. I will attempt to undertake a more regular connection in this way. So watch out for my future ramblings. Bye for now - Matthew James     

The 13th Path - The Path Of Gimel

The Mysteries Of Gimel: Gimel (pronounced Gee-mel or Gim-el) is the third letter of the Hebrew alphabet. It, therefore, has the gematria value of 3. Its Hebrew spelling is Gimel Mem Lamed, which, in turn, has a gematria value of 73 (Gimel=3, Mem=40, Lamed=30). The fully spelled word means "Camel", and is sometimes transliterated as Gamel.

Gimel is seen as a charitable, indeed, a righteous, man in the Talmud, chasing after a poor man to give him charity (Daleth, the next letter, is related to Daluth, meaning poverity). The root of Gimel is gamal, meaning "to give", and thus Gimel gives to Daleth from the House of God (Beth), which is filled with the wealth of God's Divine Breath (Aleph).

The act of "giving" is also indicative of Binah, which, as the Supernal Mother, gives birth. The act of giving birth to the rest of creation is a kind and merciful act, for she gives birth to Chesed, just as Gimel gives birth to Daleth; and Chesed is the Sephirah of Mercy and Lovingkindness.

The camel of Gimel is also a symbol of Binah, for it carries water in its hump, which is symbolic of the water of life contained in the "bump" or belly of the Mother. The camel survives even the harshest of desert conditions, a state suitable for the dark Saturnian waters of Binah.

Gimel is also a Double Letter, and the Moon is the planet assigned to it, while the High Priestess is its Tarot card, according to modern Hermetic tradition.

The idea of wealth is covered in the fact that Gimel gives money to poor Daleth (although Peace and War are sometimes attributed).

It is also called the Unifing Intelligence in the 32 Paths of Wisdom:

"Unity Directing Consciousness. It is called this because it is the essence of the Glory. It presents the completion of the true essence of the unified spiritual beings."

The NEW Look ...

We've changed the look of A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS. It was due a spring clean. So we looked around the potential layouts at our disposal, did a little customising ... and decided upon what you see now ...

I hope you like it! If you are on social media with us ... Facebook, Twitter etc ... please let us know what YOU think about the new look.

We are kind of pleased with this different appearance. 'A change is as good as a rest' is often quoted in scenarios like this, that's why we've quoted it now. We feel refreshed and like the newness to the appearance. There will be a few minor tweaks here and now to improve the visual quality of what is almost a ten year old blog. We've hidden the grey hairs and the lines on the blog's face. It is, we feel, easy and appealing to read.

Thoughts ... to get you ... Thinking #43

"If you're proactive, you don't have to wait for circumstances or other people to create perspective expanding experiences. You can consciously create your own." -- Stephen Covey

Connect with the edge, the unknown, of your experience. Allow this pull towards unexplored territory to take you to new dimensions of yourself. Allow life to touch you in new ways. For this is how we truly live life. Become more alive as you grow through your consciousness barriers. Ask questions that seek answers beyond yourself. The depth of life is revealed as you go further into it.

"Nothing is lost upon a man who is bent upon growth; nothing wasted on one who is always preparing for - life by keeping eyes, mind and heart open to nature, men, books, experience - and what he gathers serves him at unexpected moments in unforeseen ways." -- Hamilton Wright Mabie

DARPA Developing Mind Control and Mark of the Beast Technologies

Waking Times: Technology consultants to DARPA may claim the secretive Department of Defense only has innovation for the betterment of humanity in mind, but some of their most outlandish projects tell a different story. How do DARPA’s projects interact with each other and what does this truly mean for us as a civilization?

DARPA has hacked into a squid’s nervous system in order to force the animal to change its colors. What does this mean for you and me? DARPA is essentially seeing just how far they can take their mind control techniques so that even those of us who have not been overtaken with nano-bots would still be physically submissive. This same experiment is being carried out on human spies, wherein DARPA’s scientists hack into the peripheral nervous system to override autonomic functioning.

There are dozens more unseemly DARPA projects, from real life Avatars to every conceivable manner of robots, and war toys that would make Machiavelli jealous. Some say DARPA is simply pushing technological boundaries to their very edge, but by piecing together the implications of their projects both singularly, and used cooperatively, another possibility becomes startlingly more>>>...

AUSTRALIAN RAVEN Copyright Matthew James


Daily Om: Picking a leaf off the ground and contemplating it as an object in and of itself is very inspiring. Its shape and color, the way it feels in your hand, its delicate veins and the stem that once held it fast to the branch of a tree—all of these qualities reveal a leaf to be a miniature work of natural art. As we contemplate this small object more deeply and consider where it came from and what purpose it has served, we find that the leaf is one small but essential part of a system that harnesses the energy of the sun, plumbs the depths of the earth, and in the process brings into being the oxygen many living things rely on to live.

A leaf transforms the elements of its environment—sunlight, carbon dioxide, rain—into nourishment for its tree. This beautiful, nearly weightless, ephemeral piece of nature is a vital conduit to the branch that is a conduit to the trunk that is a conduit to the roots of the tree. The roots, in turn, draw nourishment from the earth to feed the trunk, the branches, and the leaves. The living beings that inhale the oxygen that comes from this process exhale the carbon dioxide that feeds the leaves through which the tree is fed. It is difficult to know where one cycle ends and another one more>>>...

The 19th Path

Teth is the first path outside the Supernal Triangle. Outside this garden, from the top of the Ethical Triangle, the human soul is to find its self-consciousness, its direction, conscience and ethics, on its own. Teth is the path on which the fiery darkness of the Supernals is manifested as light, the now seperate consciousness of souls.

Teth means 'serpent', the animal which played a crucial role as the tempter in Genesis, but which is also a symbol of perfect manifestation and wisdom with a tail in its mouth. The angels of Geburah are in fact the seraphim, the fiery serpents. The serpent of Kundalini, the life force, can rise from Yesod and illuminate the higher chakras, as symbolized by the snakes climbing the Caduceus. The snake is therefore a perfect symbol of the condition of the human soul, its potential for growth through more>>>...

Evaluating Our Relationships

Daily OM: There comes a time in all our lives when we may need to evaluate our relationships, making sure that they are having a positive effect on us, rather than dragging us down. Without realizing it, we may be spending precious time and energy engaging in friendships that let us down, rather than cultivating ones that support and nourish us along our path. Life, with its many twists, turns, and challenges, is difficult enough without us entertaining people in our inner circle who drain our energy. We can do so much more in this world when we are surrounded by people who understand what we’re trying to do and who positively support our efforts to walk our path.

We can begin this evaluation process by simply noticing how we feel in the context of each one of our close relationships. We may begin to see that an old friend is still carrying negative attitudes or ideas that we ourselves need to let go of in order to move forward. Or we may find that we have a long-term relationship with someone who has a habit of letting us down, or not showing up for us when we need support. There are many ways to go about changing the status quo in situations like this, having a heart to heart with our friend showing through example. This process isn’t so much about abandoning old friends as it is about shifting our relationships so that they support us on our journey rather than holding us back.

An important part of this process is looking at ourselves and noticing what kind of friend we are to the people in our lives. We might find that as we adjust our own approach to a relationship, challenging ourselves to be more supportive and positive, our friends make adjustments as well and the whole world benefits.

No Evidence for Fluoridated Water to Result in Less Cavities

Waking Times: Two-thirds of Americans drink tap water that has added fluoride. Unlike other chemicals added to water, which are intended to treat the water itself, fluoride is intended to treat the people who drink the water, whether they want the treatment or not.

As the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) puts it, “Fluoridating water supplies can thus fairly be described as a form of mass medication, which is why most European countries have rejected the practice.”1

In the U.S., many people assume the fluoride in drinking water is beneficial for their teeth, an assumption that has been widely spread by public health agencies.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has partnered with the American Dental Association (ADA) in saying fluoridation is “nature’s way to prevent tooth decay”2 — a statement that is both misleading and more>>>...

Recharging Your Batteries

Daily OM: Our natural state of being is vibrant, happy to be alive. Yet, there can be times when we feel run down and worn out. This does not mean that we are lazy or unfit for the tasks in our lives; it means that we need to recharge our batteries and find a way of keeping them charged. Vitamins and extra rest can be very helpful in restoring our physical bodies. And if we are willing to delve deeper, we may discover that there is an underlying cause for our exhaustion.

Whenever you are feeling run down, take an honest look at how you have been thinking, feeling and acting. You will likely find a belief, behavior pattern or even a relationship that is out of alignment with who you really are. Perhaps you believe you have to be perfect at everything or you have been bending over backwards to get people to like you. Maybe you are dealing with mild depression or simply have too much on your plate right now. There may also be people or situations in your life which are draining your energy. Once you get clear on the root cause, you can weed it out and better direct your flow of energy in the future.

In time, you might notice that the reasons you feel run down have less to do with how much you are doing and more to do with the fact that in your heart, you would rather be doing something else entirely. From now on, try and listen to what your heart really wants. It may take meditation, or just a moment of silent tuning in to gain the clarity you need, but it is well worth the effort. When you know what you truly want to do, and honor that in all situations, you will find that getting run down is a thing of the past.

The Rune Elhaz

The 15th rune of the Elder Futhark, Elhaz is a powerful protective rune. Its shape symbolizes the strong resistance of the wapiti who terrorizes the enemy with its antlers. Because of its antlers nobody dares to attack the wapiti, so this one wins without needing to fight. Elhaz also symbolizes the sedge (Carex rostrata), a reed variety with sharp leaves which discourages the predators. This Rune is often to refered to as 'elk-sedge'.

Knowing how to repel the evil, Elhaz represents the best defense which can exist. It is the reference rune of the personal protection. Visualize oneself surrounded with this rune confers a powerful shield against any sorts of attacks, physical and/or psychics. The rune Elhaz allows to protect its properties, buildings and vehicles. The power of support and defense of Ehlaz confers a great protection against all the forces or influences, known or unknown, which each of us can enter conflict with. Elhaz represents the power of the man, supported by the beyond, in the divine quest.

Elhaz procures to the one who use it, an aura allowing to move forward in life with more vigour. Elhaz is a rune which calls up to the divine and which connects us with this part of ourselves. It guides and provides support.

Elhaz is the rune connecting the gods to the human, the force bringing the human consciousness towards more>>>...

The water that makes up so much of our bodies is like ocean water. The salt crystals in this water vibrate at ever-changing frequencies. Our hearts are the emotional centres of our bodies, and they put out frequencies that are 10 times the power of the frequencies of our brains. When we are happy, we vibrate at a higher frequency than when we are angry or sad. Our emotions change the chemical composition of the water in our systems. That's why happy tears taste different than tears of sadness.

Experiencing physical, emotional and mental stillness harmonizes the vibrational output of the body, heart and mind and we become stronger.

"The message we give our bodies -- one of irritation or acceptance -- is the message to which our bodies will answer."

The Unseen World

Daily OM: Just because we can’t see something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist, although this is a common way in which people deny the existence of spirit guides, angels, and other unseen helpers in our lives. However, anyone who has encountered such beings can attest to the fact that they do, indeed, exist, just as our breath exists, keeping us alive, even though we can’t see it.

What we see and don’t see may just be a matter of perspective, like the ladybug who sees the leaf on which she sits, but not the tree the leaf grows on, or the person sitting beneath more>>>...

Thoughts to get you Thinking #41

"The purpose of therapy is not to remove suffering but TO MOVE THROUGH IT to an enlarged consciousness that can sustain the polarity of painful opposites." -- James Hollis

How do we support others who are suffering?

When we understand how soul works through us, we begin to see how pain generates the impulse to change. We see that our aim in supporting someone is NOT to get rid of their pain and suffering. Instead, we want to assist them to understand what the pain is trying to teach them -- to find meaning in their distress. Often, all we need do is be fully present to them. It also helps to be present to our own experience and genuine in our feelings. Living our own truth helps create the space for the other person to live theirs.

"The first duty of love is to listen."-- Paul Tillich

"With the gift of listening comes the gift of healing."-- Catherine de Hueck Doherty
