Accupuncture – Second Treatment

Monday, September 29th, 2008

So I went into the “doctor” for accupuncture this last Friday. The place had a wonderful energy to it. It just “feelt” good to be there, unlike a traditional doctor’s office. They perforated my body violently with little needles – well I couldn’t even feel them. The doctor checked my blood pressure before and after. It went up. Haha. He then tries to use the manual machine to suggest that the automatic is now lying. My skeptic radar starts to go off. Not good.

I am getting another treatment of accupuncture today for the ol’ bloodpressure.  The guy says he is going to treat some additional meridian points. No noticable effect after this weekend, but I’d like to continue this little experiment.

One of the things  I noticed in this particular chiropractic clinic is that they love to emphasize the word “doctor”. I will go get the “doctor”. The “doctor” will be with you shortly. It is very subtle, and perhaps I am projecting, but I sense the elevation of the word doctor because perhaps someone at this particular organization either has some insecurity about the dimensions of their reproductive organs or …. being called a doctor. I am not sure which.

Superfoods Rationing

Monday, September 29th, 2008

I have been looking into options for emergency food rationing and what not over the last year or so. Not to freak out or anything, but apparently the US economy may take a hit or two in the coming year. My sources were right on the money with respect to coming changes in the oil price (down) and a big hit to occur in this month. I’m not saying the sky is falling, but that it is good to be prepared. Preparedness reduces worry in my opinion. To do this, I had to develop a strategy.

One of the things  that comes to mind, is reducing the necessary caloric intake and allowing the body to operate more efficiently and reducing the storage required for emergency rations. I read one report of a man who could survive on water and 9 grams of pond scum each day. I also found sources for cheese and learned on the history channel that cheese can be stored for long periods of time.

So just in case Kroger’s runs out of milk – I figured it would be good to get some emergency rations. I didn’t want to stock the garage full of powdered milk and pinto beans so I looked for a possible alternative – although I do have gallons upon gallons of beans, rice, flour, and various staples stored up. The alternative is called Spurilina.

Spurilina is some sort of dried algae (pond scum) that is supposed to be very high in protien and nutrients that a lot of us under nutrioned but obese Americans are missing. So, I figured I would test out this susbstance not unlike how I am testing accupuncture. I need a test subject…. any volunteers? Me me me as usual is the only volunteer.

I have already been fasting for two days now for another purpose, but did have a shot of whey powder with water yesterday because I didn’t want to give up my strength increases from weight training. I felt that this was cheating a bit though. It was only an ounce of whey powder, but still. This is for spiritual purposes and I need my stomach empty.

I plan to try this spurilina stuff as a fasting supplement and see what it does to my health. It doesn’t look very filling which  should work out okay with my fast. They say it “reverses” cancer. I don’t know about all that, but maybe it will help my hypertension. I also read that when fasting, one should execute a detox otherwise there is no real benefit.

FYI – public service announcement be careful when fasting… when you come off – if you eat a lot of bad stuff (e.g., fried jalopeno sticks and Dr. Pepper) or don’t slowly come back – you can shock your body and the next time you fast it will spend the whole time preparing for the shock instead of purging that cigarette you secretly smoked when you were seven.

Also, don’t avoid water. Drink lots of water. I once did a three day fast with no food or water. Turns out, that was a bad idea to go without water in more literature that I read.

A year ago, if you had told me I would be eating pond scum and water I would have told you are nuts. Times are a changin…. speaking of which, Rosh Hoshana starts tonight.

I really wanted to try out that ol’ Jewish tradition, but since I am fasting… I guess I’ll have to mentally eat an apple in honey. I’ll do that part later, but this coming evening is a time of newness…. the new year for some and hopefully for me.

Accupuncture Blood Pressure

Saturday, September 27th, 2008

I have hypertension. Right now I am going through undesired divorce proceedings and I imagine that has something to do with my blood pressure going up.

I went ahead and started doing the Edgar Cayce program for lowering blood pressure. In addition, I started doing the “emotional freedom technique” system of accupressure, used the Sedona method for handling the emotions, etc. This includes the castor oil packs, walking, lemon juice, diet, etc. In addition, I found some herbal supplements – particularly one called Hawthorn.

All of this seems to be working. My blood pressure dropped 15 points over a period of about two weeks. I also do the ol’ daily affirmation / visualization of my blood pressure going down. I have no idea which of these is most responsible, but it seems to be helping.

Everything I have read suggests that there is an underlying emotional issue that still remains untreated and may have something to do with my heart and/or root chakra having blockages.

So, I went ahead and went in for accupuncture as well. This was this last Friday. We shall see what unfolds as I receive additional treatments.

Critical Spark of Intelligence Mass

Saturday, September 20th, 2008

Okay, so this may seem wacky, but I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that the same place that God came from may have an analogy in this dimension or realm or whatever it is that we live in.

You ever watched a campfire that has gone out? The wind may stir for a bit and blow on the hot coals. Then suddenly, ignition occurs – flames jump out of nowhere.

What about nucleur reactions. A mass of plutonium or uranium or whatever is sitting there all nice and happy. Doesn’t really seem to do a whole lot until just the right amount of additional neutrons are added to the mix – perhaps a catalyst , and then boom – 200,000 lives extinguished.

I’m left wondering is there is a similar phenomenon within the realm of intelligence? For example, could there be a pile of trillions upon quadrillions of circuits, that could eventually reach “awareness”. Sort of a mandelbrot set of awareness within our dimension. Sort of like that old story about a guy dreaming that he was dreaming and woke up within his dream? If you don’t get that, perhaps watch the movie Existenz or Jacob’s Ladder.

Timothy Vedas

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

I’ve been reading a bit about the “Vedas” lately. These are supposedly very ancient scriptures. I’m not sure I’m buying everything that is said just yet, but as I do more research ….. yet another rabbit hole.

For example, here is something on Dharma

Now this idea of Dharma – this knowledge that ” right ” and ” wrong ” are relative and changeable, instead of absolute and fixed, does not give anyone an excuse for doing anything “bad” or “wrong” that he would not have done under the old idea. On the contrary, Dharma holds one up to his highest conception of “right”, and expects him to do what seems “right” for rights sake, and not because the law compels him to do so – it expects right-action from him, even though the law has not as yet reached so high a stage. It teaches him that if he sees a thing to be “wrong,” it is wrong for him even though the law and public opinion have not yet reached so high a standard of ethics. The advanced man will always be a little ahead of the average conception — never behind it…
. . . And another rule of Dharma is to refrain from criticising or condemning the Dharma of another man less developed than yourself. He is not looking through your eyes. He may be living nearer to his spiritual ideal than your are to yours — how dare you judge him? Are you so near perfect that you set your standard up as absolute? . . .

Sounds quite similar to II Timothy 2:22 I think (gentleness) and perhaps Yeshua’s assertion about being careful about the judgment we put out as we will be judged at the same level ourselves.

Theta Waves and Fire

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

I read somewhere that by coincidence….perhaps… our fire can flicker at about the same rate as the “theta” brain wave pattern. Maybe that’s why campfires are so relaxing?

Binaural Beats – Meditation

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

I’ve been testing out a number of different meditation tracks. There are programs available from The Monroe Institute, Paul McKenna, Steve G. Jones, Center Point Research, Higher Balance Research, etc.

I have found some of the programs to be useless and some to be quite awesome for my meditation. I had read somewhere once that having metal anywhere (i.e., headphones) near one’s person while meditating would throw off the etheric body though.

As I continue to test these out, I guess I’ll have to put what has worked well for me.

I just tried out the demo track from

It is quite good so far – though I am unsure if it is worth $470 that they are proposing.

I found a software package called Sharma which allows one to create custom hypnosis CDs including use of binaural, etc. I’ve looked around for something like this for some time, but this was the only one I could find. It costs about$150. Not too bad I suppose.


Good Karma Article

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

I loved this article by Peggy Jentoft (link below):

Everyone undergoes suffering of some kind in their lives, Spiritual people including Healers are not exempt from this process. Many people these days come from dysfunctional families or have a lot of pain in their lives which leads to many questions about their experiences and how they can work through them.

We choose our life companions before we are born, on the basis of our mutual 6th aura level. Which is tremendously different than the first three levels we deal with while incarnate. The sixth level is a highly spiritual and intuitive plane.

To be healers in the best sense it is important that we understand suffering and learn to heal from the inside out. and develop genuine compassion for all being kind. and for that reason we choose these experiences. We may also choose these experiences in order to help others or to guide and change society.

A primary cause of suffering is the inability to forgive and to love ourselves, we draw experiences to ourselves in an effort at redemption (this is re multiple lives) A Most important lesson of Karma is that punishment is not essential or needed at all it is harmful to self. Judge not applies to self. those are some possible causes for drawing these events into our lives.

We can choose to expiate negative Karma by making positive causes for ourselves by being Healers and teachers or just by being kind and loving and working at becoming wise.

It is important to recognize our feelings about our painful experiences it is even more important to FEEL our feelings, much of the ongoing pain is because we have attempted not to feel the pain and anger. When we have felt the pain, the anger, the hurt, perhaps the pride in our differentness and suffering that we can let it go. LET IT GO. Feel it, release it and move on.

When you forgive you are not required to block your memories and pretend that the injuries never happened, what the act of forgiving and releasing within yourself does is to dissolve the cords that keep you in that energy of suffering, hooked to the past and dragging it along with you.

However deeply a person has buried the diamond light of divinity in mud, it is within them, as it is within you. To recognize that light within yourself and within those who have hurt you is to free yourself from the need to repeat this experience. The only genuine and beneficial revenge is in becoming truly happy.

If you cannot forgive that is fine, you can work at wanting to forgive and in that I do not mean making it O.K. but making it have no energy in your life so that it is not an issue to you anymore.

Become alive and glorious and full of joy in the life that you have now. whatever has happened in the past you have survived you have triumphed in, you are Alive and Free now.

When you recall a moment of pain from the past mentally return in your Present body to that moment and tell the child that you were then that you have survived and that it is time for that part of you to come forward into the present and rejoin the whole. see your current world from that child’s viewpoint and realize what wonders you have now.

When you have released the energies that hold you in the pain you will be free of that relationship and filled with compassion for those people who have not yet found peace.

That does not mean to say that you must Forgive and love unconditionally those who have hurt and harmed you. However, acknowledge that deep inside they may have a Buddha nature that is the potential for enlightenment even if we can not see it.

What I am saying is that any wound that is being continually reopened and picked on will not heal and will become putrid and infected. You owe it to yourself to work on healing your wounds. A spiritual gangrene of the heart will destroy you as effectively as gangrene of the body destroys the flesh. This does apply to these emotional abuse wounds as well as to all others.

Unconditional Love starts with loving the self. Happiness begins with appreciation I mean appreciating what you have and know now. Looking for the joy of the moments passing now reaching out for moments of joy and pleasure. As long as you are alive, life can get better but you have to make that happen by your own energy.

‘As long as you define yourself in terms of your past suffering, you remain in pain in the present.’

One of the things I have learned is that there is always someone who’s life makes your hard times look like heaven and that there are always ways to find the joy and ecstasy in the mere fact of being alive if you look for it.

That life all life any life is precious and beautiful and yes we chose the life we have tortured, abused, starved, neglected, whatever, is preferable to not having a life and body at all.

We are here because we wanted to be. We won the spiritual lottery in order to get here now and take part in these glorious times of transformation we incarnate beings are the few the proud the lucky. Whatever the outward appearance of our lives may be and whatever the past pain we need to get on with our own lives now.

‘I am responsible for creating my own happiness Whatever has happened to me in the past I am in charge of how I live and feel Now’

Spiritual Laws

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

Still learning the spiritual laws that govern how this place works. I’ve got some pretty convincing evidence – at least for myself – that the law of Karma is very real. The law of Octaves was verified by quitting smoking. What else though? Still learning. I’ve got to learn this stuff to save my marriage and my family. Learning as fast as I can!

Law of Grace

Law of Karma

Law of Octaves

Law of Recurrence
