A LETTER FROM DEEPAK CHOPRA

~ A LETTER FROM DEEPAK CHOPRA ~ We are the only creatures on the planet who can change our biology through our thoughts, feelings, and intentions. Our cells are constantly eavesdropping on our thoughts and being changed by them. When we fall in love, positive thoughts and emotions course through our body and strengthen our immune system. On the other hand, the dark thoughts and feelings of depression can leave us vulnerable to illness. Over the past three decades, hundreds of studies have shown that nothing holds more power over the body than the beliefs of the mind. This is the quantum worldview, which teaches that we are all part of an infinite field of intelligence ­ the source of our thoughts, mind, body, and everything else in the cosmos. This paradigm,… Read More

Leaving It All Behind – Resolving Our Past Lives

by Talia Shafir It’s a delicious irony that the people believed to be the last of the ancient Incas, culturally preserved in the purity of their high Andean refuge until 1949, are the bearers of the universal message to leave the past behind, drop our differences and change our relationship to time. Having escaped the marauding conquistadors, the Q’ero Elders have spent the last 500 years guarding a sacred prophecy of “pachacuti”, taken from the name of an ancient Incan ruler meaning ‘he who transforms the world’. “Pachacuti” heralds a world of union and possibilities, of harmony and natural order, signaling the end of chaos and disarray. The last one took place 500 years ago. The Q’ero await the next one which they say is already underway. These prophecies are actually optimistic,… Read More

MUSIC AND MIND — A THEORY OF AESTHETIC DYNAMICS

The latter constitutes a domain of universality and of meaning that acts in conjunction with more… Read More

Get Rhythm – Drumming Technique

By Robert Lawrence Friedman When Ginger Graziano lost her 19-year-old son to cancer, a tsunami of grief poured over her, leaving her in a seething, inarticulate depression. Without a way to express her anguish, she says, the pain became unbearable. Then one day she heard a drum beat from a nearby meadow and felt an immediate, visceral response. Although she had never played any kind of drum before, she went right out and bought one’a djembe, an African drum. Some instinct told her that whatever she needed to heal, she could access by drumming. The first time she sat down and began to beat on the drum, she felt the naked ferocity of anger pouring through her hands. Over time, however, anger gave way to sadness, sadness to acceptance, and acceptance’eventually’to joy.… Read More

RAINBOWS

The Peruvian Shaman K’ichy has said that the The full spectrum rainbow with at least seven colors will become the most sacred symbol of the emerging time. The so called ” new age”. A symbol of hope and diversity and completeness. It serves to remind us to attend to all aspects of our lives, each color representing many aspects of being, and the combined spectrum forming the pure white light of enlightenment and divinity. Rainbows often appear while the sun is shining after a rain shower. The sun, the observer’s eye and the center of the arc must be aligned. The rainbow appears in the part of the sky opposite the sun and is an arc of 180 degrees. It is caused by the refraction and reflection of rays from the sun… Read More

Dream Colors

From Dreams Obscure Often, dreamers don’t pay attention to the colors in their dreams. However, focusing more attention on this aspect of dreams may help lead to a more accurate and fulfilling interpretation. For example: A dreamer dreams of a statue, which falls from its place on a mantle and crashes to the floor. Seems pretty broad, huh? However, if the dreamer recalled that the statue was green, then one possible interpretation could be that the dreamer’s jealousy is leading to destructive ends. If a certain color continuously reappears in your dream, it may be time for you to figure out exactly what that color could represent. Your subconscious is most likely trying to comment on something by using that particular color as a symbol. Below is a list of colors and… Read More

Dreams and their Interpretations

The dreams which we remember and are able to describe are those which occur just as we are falling asleep or just as we are beginning to awaken. It is during these times that our conscious mind is partially active and in a state to receive impressions which are retained by the memory. Frequently, however, these impressions are so faint that they are remembered only for a short time. We may remember a dream for a few minutes when we wake up in the night, but the next day, it is entirely forgotten. On the other hand, there are dreams which are so vivid, and which impress themselves so very strongly upon us, that we can recall them and describe them in detail years afterwards. During sleep, this mysterious underworld of thoughts… Read More

On Prophesying by Dreams

by Aristotle (Written 350 BCE) Part 1 As to the divination which takes place in sleep, and is said to be based on dreams, we cannot lightly either dismiss it with contempt or give it implicit confidence. The fact that all persons, or many, suppose dreams to possess a special significance, tends to inspire us with belief in it [such divination], as founded on the testimony of experience; and indeed that divination in dreams should, as regards some subjects, be genuine, is not incredible, for it has a show of reason; from which one might form a like opinion also respecting all other dreams. Yet the fact of our seeing no probable cause to account for such divination tends to inspire us with distrust. For, in addition to its further unreasonableness, it… Read More

Ego, Apprehension and Dreams

–by Dale Mann Can we purposefully frighten ourselves into experiencing, not nightmarish reality, but unusual psychic events and dreams? Here I’m not referring to telling ghost stories while spending the night in a graveyard or a haunted house—places where anything may happen. Rather I’m thinking of a more relaxed and controlled setting, but in any case the answer to the question is, Yes! Humans and animals, and dare I include insects and plants? (many Seth readers would say, “Yes”) are endowed with a very wide range of emotions that many people believe extend far beyond the small descriptions we assign to such feelings: the usual narrow classifications with love at one end and hate at the other—and everything else squeezed in between. It’s also understood that within a group of individuals the… Read More

Prodromic Dreams

Prodromic means ‘before running’ and refers to dreams which seem to give a symbolic or even direct indication of something, in particular an illness, that has not yet manifested physically in the dreamer. Thus, a worrying, perplexing dream or series of dreams about a system of underground pipes could refer to an impending vascular condition. The usual rationale for such dreams is that the unconscious has such an intimate link to the body that it becomes aware of minuscule symptoms long before they can be consciously perceived. The dream provides the communication channel to consciousness – but of course the information may not be interpreted and appreciated. In fact, two possibilities exist here : either, as stated, the unconscious passively picks up the early symptoms, or the unconscious causes the physical condition.… Read More
