YOUR MIND is not YOUR BRAIN

This study has touched upon some of the higher mysteries of consciousness and the universe.

This website founded on GODs Energy through prayer at the Basilica & National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation in Carey Ohio.
What I have learned is: Your brain never thinks it perceives through your own senses and others experiences!!!
.
You are the central sun of your universe. There is nothing outside of you. There is nothing outside of you but a story that brings up a feeling. It’s The reason you birth yourself in this reality, in this time-frame, in this Now, in every now and every lifetime, in every situation, is simply for the emotional intensity of that life.  You are not here … to learn to be masters, unless you choose it. You are not here to change the world. You are not here to do anything except have an extraordinary emotional experience. That you may indeed garner wisdom and that you may indeed be of support and nurturing and healing to your fellow men is all very wondrous. You really are your emotional experience.  As stated by: Yeşim Yediçam
.
Neuroscientists at Canada’s Laurentian University recently published a paper in PLOS One claiming to have brought dead human brains back to “life.” In a manner of speaking, that is. According to their quite technical article, researchers were able to electrically stimulate certain sections of dead brains back to a lifelike state:
.

Patterns similar to the living condition were elicited by chemical and electrical probes within coronal and sagittal sections of human temporal lobe structures that had been maintained in ethanol-formalin-acetic acid. […] These results suggest  that portions  of the post-mortem human brain may retain latent capacities to respond with potential life-like and virtual properties.

The authors also noted that injecting the brains with ketamine and nicotine likewise restored similar levels of lifelike cognitive activity. Yeah, that’s pretty weird. But it gets weirder – much weirder.  The researchers found with the addition of glutamate,  one of   the twenty amino acids that make up human proteins, brains preserved in the common biological preservative ethanol-formalin-acetic acid (EFA) began emitting photons:

By simply applying glutamate at concentrations typically encountered within living brain tissue, photons were emitted from human tissue that had been fixed in EFA for decades. […] This flux density is the same order     of magnitude that was measured from the right hemispheres (at the level     of the temporal lobe) when people sitting in very dark rooms engaged in vivid imagination about white light.

In other words, researchers found that just by giving the dead brains an amino acid that living brains receive, those “dead” brains emitted the same amount of photons – light –   as would the brains of living people sitting in a dark room imagining a white light.

This study has touched upon some of the higher mysteries and longstanding questions about the mind.

In their discussion, the authors present some really out-there theories about the nature     of consciousness, reality, and the universe:

The physical bases to “consciousness” and cognition with the implication of a more ubiquitous property that may occur throughout the universe would be consistent with the philosophy […] that the behaviour of any part of the universe (“cosmos”) is determined by all of its parts.

Whew. I’m gonna need a nap after this one. While it’s still impossible to determine         just what level of consciousness could be restored in these dead brains,  researchers definitively state that the dead brains “express some capacity for cognitive activation.”   The potential implications and applications of this research boggle the mind.

Welcome to the new afterlife.

This study could finally lend credence to the dreams of a techno-afterlife presaged by transhumanists, or even confirm some longer-held theories of the spirit passed down by the world’s religions. The implications of this research – that photons might hold the key to consciousness and our connection with the universe – go far beyond neuroscience and unite many metaphysical, spiritual, and quantum theories. It’s a great time to be alive –   or immortal – even if you are just a brain in a jar.

You might wonder, at some point today, what’s going on in another person’s mind.        You may compliment someone’s great mind, or say they are out of their mind. You         may even try to expand or free your own mind.

But what is a mind? Defining the concept is a surprisingly slippery task. The mind is       the seat of consciousness, the essence of your being. Without a mind, you cannot be considered meaningfully alive.  So what exactly,  and where precisely,  is it?

Traditionally, scientists have tried to define the mind as the product of brain activity:    The brain is the physical substance, and the mind is the conscious product of those firing neurons,  according to the classic argument.  But growing evidence shows that the mind goes far beyond the physical workings of your brain.

No doubt, the brain plays an incredibly important role. But our mind cannot be confined to what’s inside our skull, or even our body, according to a definition first put forward by Dan Siegel, a professor of psychiatry at UCLA School of Medicine and the author of a recently published book, Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human.

He first came up with the definition more than two decades ago, at a meeting of 40 scientists across disciplines,  including neuroscientists,  physicists, sociologists, and anthropologists.  The aim was  to come to an understanding  of the mind that would    appeal to common ground and satisfy those wrestling with the question across these  fields.

After much discussion, they decided that a key component of the mind is: “the       emergent self-organizing process,  both embodied and relational, that regulates          energy flow within and among us.” It’s not catchy. But it is interesting, and with meaningful implications.

The most immediately shocking element of this definition is that our mind extends beyond our physical selves. In other words, our mind is not simply our perception of experiences, but those experiences themselves. Siegel argues that it’s impossible to completely disentangle our subjective view of the world from our interactions.

PAIN AND IT PURPOSE :
For example you arise in the morning and notice some pain in your elbow.
There are Two Purposes interlocked for this pain… One to get you to stop doing the   action that is causing the Pain and second and the less obvious reason: Pain is there           to draw your attention to that part of your body needing  EXTRA GOOD WILL.

  It is always ….that we should speak of things that are not as though they are when we         are Creating, while standing in the lack. That being said  you would speak of the elbow working perfectly with out pain, of it being perfectly Healthy While in this reality & at this time it is hurting.  This is the teaching that humans do so poorly at applying.  They have a tendency to confess what they have,  not what they want created…… BIG MISTAKE,  that    in turn only strengthens  the hold over  them  by the things they don’t want that presently  do have power over them. Remember: “ By your WORDS you are JUSTIFIED and by your WORDS you are CONDEMNED.” Stay JUSTIFIED !!

Living a Solitary Life

Photo: ♥ The most amazing and beautiful moments of surprise always arrive unexpected.~ Be curious, with your heart and mind open ~Anna Lieb

First off I believe  that LOVe  in the universe  is a remarkable thing and what you cast out you have comeback to you ten fold: therefore, learn to communicate with the Universe and get the insight and guidance you need to change your life!

Send this to all your family……………….

no matter how often you talk or how close you are✊👊👌✌

Let all your family know you haven’t forgotten them 💘💘💓💗

& tell your family you will never forget them!!!!!!

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.  Unless it becomes self aware and thus free from unconscious conditioned patterns.Let go of who you think you are, and feel who you really want to be. That’s who you are.  Be that.

It will be more difficult at first, to rewire yourself and let go of your old limitations. You can be honest, trustworthy, successful, brave and live with your heart open. You can heal yourself and break destructive patterns. No matter who told you otherwise.

It is up to you if you want to be your true realized self or a bleak blueprint of your past.

Your choice.

Being alone or living a solitary life can be a gift, we don’t have to look and feel sorry for people who are on this path.

Ask yourself ……

“How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?”

There is a special kind of person in our world who finds himself alone and isolated, almost since birth.

His solitary existence isn’t from a preference or an antisocial temperament – he is simply old. Old in heart, old in mind and old in soul, this person is an old soul who finds his outlook on life vastly different and more matured than those around him. As a result, the old soul lives his life internally, walking his own solitary path while the rest around him flock to follow another. Perhaps you’ve experienced this in your own life, or have witnessed it in another person?

Robert Frost, Eckhart Tolle and even Nick Jonas have been called them.

Perhaps even you have?

If you have not yet discovered whether you’re an old soul, read some of the revealing signs below, I have been researching.
1. You tend to be a solitary loner.
Because old souls are disinterested in the pursuits and interests of the people in their age groups, they find it dissatisfying to make friends with people they find it hard to relate to. The result is … old souls tend to find themselves alone a lot of the time. People just don’t cut it for them.
2. You love knowledge, wisdom and truth.
Yep … this seems a little grandiose and overly noble, but the old soul finds himself naturally gravitating towards the intellectual side of life. Old souls inherently understand that knowledge is power, wisdom is happiness and truth is freedom, so why not seek after those things? These pursuits are more meaningful to them than reading up on the latest gossip about Snooki’s latest boyfriend, or the latest football scores.
3. You’re spiritually inclined.
More emotional old souls tend to have sensitive and spiritual natures. Overcoming the confines of the ego, seeking enlightenment and fostering love and peace are the main pursuits of these young-in-body Mother Teresa’s. To them it seems the wisest, most fulfilling use of time.
4. You understand the transience of life.                                                                                       Old souls are frequently plagued with reminders of not only their own mortality, but      that of everything and everyone around them. This makes the old soul wary and at      times withdrawn, but wisely dictates the way they live their lives.
5. You’re thoughtful and introspective.
Old souls tend to think a lot … about everything. Their ability to reflect and learn from their actions and those of others is their greatest teacher in life. One reason why old souls feel so old at heart is because they have learnt so many lessons through their own thought processes, and possess so much insight into life situations from their ability to quietly and carefully observe what if going on around them.
6. You see the bigger picture.
Rarely do old souls get lost in the superficial details of getting useless degrees, job promotions, boob jobs and bigger TV’s. Old souls have the tendency to look at life from a birds eye view, seeing what is the most wise and meaningful way to approach life. When confronted with issues, old souls tend to see them as temporary and passing pains that merely serve to increase the amount of joy felt in the future. Consequently, old souls tend to have placid, stable natures as a result of their approach to life.
7. You aren’t materialistic.
Wealth, status, fame, and the latest version of iPhone … they just bore old souls. The old soul doesn’t see the purpose of pursuing things that can be easily taken away from them. Additionally, old souls have little time and interest for the short-lived things in life,       as they bring little meaning or long lasting fulfillment for them.
8. You were a strange, socially maladaptive kid.
This is not always the case, but many old souls exhibit odd signs of maturity at young  ages.  Often,  these children are also labeled as being  “precocious”,  “introverted”,  or “rebellious“, failing to fit into the mainstream behaviors. Usually, these children are extremely inquisitive and intelligent, seeing the purposelessness of many things their teachers, parents and peers say and so, and either passively or aggressively resisting   them. If you can talk to your child like he/she’s an adult – you’ve probably got an old    soul on your hands.
9. You just “feel” old.
Before putting a name to what I felt, I experienced certain sensations of simply being       an “old person” inside.  The feelings that accompany being an old soul are usually: a feeling   of world wariness, mental tiredness, watchful patience, and detached calmness. Unfortunately, this can often be perceived as being aloof and cold, which is only one of many Old Soul Myths.
Just as some old people describe themselves as being “young at heart”, so too can young people be “old at heart”.

15 Signs You’re an Old Soul

 

If you’ve often felt slightly removed from the worries of today and miss the simplistic life of a time gone by, or somehow feel a little out of sync with what your peers are concerned with, there’s a chance you may be an old soul.

Being an old soul refers to how you view and approach life. Your views echo those of someone much older than you, who has lived a long and fruitful life. You approach life with  a greater sense of knowledge  and  wisdom coupled  with  a greater sense of inner wealth. If you’ve ever met an exasperated 10 year old saying, “Kids today are so…”, or a   28 year old who says, “In my day…”, an awful lot, chances are you’re in the presence of a beautiful old soul. They’re often perplexed, and unable to relate to the things people their own age consider fun, or important, and so feel out of place. They look at life through a vignette of experiences they may not have lived, yet, but somehow, just seem to know.

So if you’ve ever felt like you’ve lived before, and you have a wealth of wisdom you can’t explain, chances are you have been reincarnated—

—or maybe, you’re just an old soul!

Here are some tell-tale signs to help you find out.

1. You know there’s another way to do things.

You often say things like, “I have a feeling this will work”, or “there’s no harm in trying.” People may view your suggestions as outdated or done, but you know that sometimes, just sometimes, the tried and tested ways of doing things are best. Hey, if it ain’t broke… You feel that not all problems require a new and innovative solution, and going round in circles when the answer may be staring you in the face is usually a waste of valuable time, and energy. You have no problem trying out new things, but know, too, that oldies can also be goodies.

2. You give advice well beyond your years.

You somehow seem to know how to do things you haven’t even done yourself yet. It’s like you’ve lived before, and just know how it all works. People often look at you with that “how do you know?” expression, and you respond with a confident, “I just know!” Truth is, you do just know, but don’t know how you know. Those people who come to you for advice, though somewhat freaked out by your amazing prophetic powers to impressively offer solutions and predict outcomes, trust you wholeheartedly and don’t doubt your authenticity.

3. You like to think things through.

Even the most impatient of people will need to think things through if they are an old   soul at heart.  You need that time to maul it over in your head.  It’s an important part of your to-do process, and it enables you to move forward in the direction most in sync with your mind, body and soul. To you, not being able to think things through, even a little, leaves you feeling uneasy, and that does nothing to help.

4. You don’t waste time asking why.

After you’ve thought things through, you move ahead, confident in the knowledge that you’ve done all you needed to do to get going. You don’t waste time in trying to justify it  yourself or anyone else. You have little time and patience for the nonsensical and would prefer to utilize your time getting things done, rather than sitting around talking about getting things done. In the end, you understand that whatever you do, you trust that all things work out just as they are supposed to, and you don’t want to question that wonderful process.

5. You don’t like to go out just for the sake of going out.

It’s quality over quantity for you. You love to go out and have fun, but going out because others feel it is required, or you look boring if you don’t, holds no merit for you. When you go out,  you’d like to experience something;  something that resonates with your way of perceiving the world and challenges you. You’ll happily spend money on those things that give you wonderful experiences and broaden your horizons. Going out just because, seems pointless to you; you’d rather save your time, and money, and do something of quality.

The Power of NOW

Cancer Sucks…Mostly: Why Getting Cancer Made Me      Less Afraid Of It       November 1, 2012 at 10:53pm

I made an offhand comment on Facebook the other day. I noted how having cancer meant I am now less scared of it. Ironic as Hell I realize (lol). A very scared friend     wrote to ask me what the heck I meant. She was just diagnosed with breast cancer        and is scared.     https://www.actualized.org/articles/letting-go-of-the-past

No one gets cancer alone. The people around that person end up experiencing fear, anticipatory grief and a loss of control as well. Cancer does spread–it emotionally spreads to those who love that person. It can also spread as a financial burden.             (Our pathetic medical system makes certain of that.)
 
 I had a friend with breast cancer and she would have NONE of the pink ribbon stuff.        I asked why. She said, “I am not the disease. I want people to see ME, not the ribbon.” This is A good lesson.  Any disease can be overwhelming and it is important to not lose the person. Sue Kesim
:<(
 Your mind becomes a pinball machine when you hear “cancer” and your name in the same sentence. You go a little crazy. I remember reading Kubler-Ross On Death and Dying in college. Those beautifully sequenced stages: DABDA
  • Depression
  • Anger
  • Bargaining
  • Depression
  • Acceptance

Life is different than college. Yes you go through every stage, but orderly not so much. Some days you go through all five stages before lunch (lol). Reading helped quiet my mind (thank you Vassar College :). The authors who helped the most:

 * Pema Chodron http://pemachodronfoundation.org/  

* Eckhart Tolle http://www.eckharttolle.com/

 Chodron’s When Things Fall Apart  and  The Places That Scare You stripped life’s illusions off the tree of my life like old dead bark.  Pema,  a Buddhist monk,  writes what we know but rarely face or admit. One of the best lessons I learned from Chodron was to go easier on myself.  When you have cancer,  which is a random thing,  you can spend time wondering why it happened to you or get busy living.

 I recommend the later and Chodron’s teachings about how to go easier on myself had      a big, nice side benefit. When I was easier on myself I was also easier on the ones I love making a tough time easier on them. Every moment is precious now. I don’t waste time being mad at silly things or not hugging someone when I can. Cancer cures you of taking people or special moments for granted. Sorry it took so much to get me in touch with myself, but glad to be here now (lol). 

 Pema ChodronPema Chodron

 Eckhart Tolle’s Power of Now and A New Earth helped get me in touch with NOW,       this moment.  Fear only exists in the past or the  future.  In the moment we are rarely scared since full presence creates purpose usually followed by a plan. Tolle wrote the most helpful single sentence,  “What ever is happening is exactly what is supposed to       be happening. ” WOW,  I can’t tell you how much  reading that sentence sitting in a   chemo chair meant. I stopped fighting.

 I accepted and then I almost died (lol). 

 Even the almost dying was instructive. I had an allergic reaction to the chemo.                   I remember thinking,  “So this is chemo,  it sucks”.  What I didn’t know is my body was shutting down and doing so faster and faster. My last conscious thought was watching the kind woman next to me get up, look closely at me ask me something and then walk across the room to bring the nurse to me. I know I almost died because the panic in the nurse’s eyes was the last thing I saw until seeing the relief as I came out of it.               Once again strangers saved my life.

 That would not be the last time strangers saved my life and what was supposed              to be happening is what was happening again.

 Eckhart Tolle                                                                                                         Eckhart Tolle

 Cancer has many things that SUCK.

 The treatment made me feel worse than the disease. I’m less dependable now since it is hard to get me to do things I HATE (email for one example). I focus time on things and people I LOVE.  The bills are overwhelming.  The money  flows out so fast you are sure you’ve sprung a large leak somewhere. Cancer destroys your confidence. You are sure  no one will employ you or love you ever again.  You  feel alone and isolated even  from yourself, or from the self you were before cancer. In truth, that person is gone. The pre-cancer Martin has left the building (lol).

 Here is what I’ve learned.

 NONE of those things like being less dependable or having my mail pile up beyond what is  financially healthy will kill me.  In fact,  I have no idea what will kill me because that day is not today.  I kept  pestering my oncologist,  Dr. Van Deventer at UNC,  to tell me  how much time I had. At one point he said, “If you were going to die in the next 48 hours I could tell you, since you are not I don’t have any more idea than you”. Life is no more certain for me than you until either one of us is in that predictable 48 hours window or some catastrophic event happens. 

 We want to believe doctors know more than we do. We want to believe a few more years in school give doctors the secret of life’s purpose and mortality.  Yeah,  not so much as it turns out.  Life’s purpose is an artistic and philosophical question and mortality outside  of that 48-hour window is too full of variables. 

My favorite reaction when I shared the  fact I have cancer with friends was the  friend who said, “Wow,  we are the same age, that could happen to me”.  I remember laughing and saying, “Yes it could, but I am glad it isn’t”. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy, but I’m glad it happened to me. Yes you heard right. I am glad I have cancer. 

 I lived in a kind of  self-created,  and imposed bubble prior to hearing cancer and my  name in the same sentence.  The bubble cost me things  I love  and care about,  well one thing I love and care about. I was married to an amazing woman for 22 years and I lost her because my bubble was so complete I never saw the slouch toward Bethlehem. I took things I would give everything I have to recover for granted. When I was almost over the deep, wide depression from losing the love of my life I got a cold that wouldn’t go away.  I had cancer.

I’m not glad I have cancer because I want to die (lol). I’m glad I have cancer because it helped me recover and find ME. I didn’t get to this idea of cancer saving my life right off. No there was a year of a double dip depression, a year of playing Kubler-Ross pinball. I don’t drink or otherwise self medicate so it is a small miracle I am here writing this (lol). No, I READ and that is how Pema Chodron was yet another stranger that saved my life. 

 Then one day all of a sudden I got it. I’m here. I don’t always feel great. I’m not as dependable as I used to be and I need more help than I did, but I’m here and it doesn’t feel, at least not this week, like we are near the 48 hours when Dr. V can accurately predict my short future, so life is good. Life is good. 

Today, I stumbled upon this youtube video, made by Global Degree, and I really liked it, so I wrote all words said in it and would like to share it with you – I hope you like it.

For the people who never travel or see the need to, I want to share 7 lessons I’ve learned visiting 72 nations in the last 3 years.

Lesson number 1: Life Is Short.
Thinking you will live to an old age is nothing more than an assumption.
Texting while driving has surpassed the death rate of drinking-and-driving.  You can          be killed on the road at any moment, by someone messaging their friends. Don’t expect retirement. Living till tomorrow is truly a blessing. So figure out what you’re going to do   if you were to die tomorrow and do that until the day you die.

Nr. 2 Go Against The Herd.
Realize that job security entails allowing somebody to fire you. Either you are working      to build someone else’s dreams or building your own. You can fail at what you don’t love. So you might as well take a chance at failing at what you do love.

Nr. 3 Embrace The Unknown.
Go without a plan and witness the flow of events. Travel on your own just to realize       how easy it is to make friends everywhere you go. Always be the first to break the ice   when meeting people.   All of the most influential people came into my life because                I came to them first.

Nr. 4 Trust In Your Own Path.
In the words of Steve Jobs; you can’t connect the dots looking forward. You can               only connect them looking backwards. ”So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.  You have to trust in something:  your gut,  destiny,  life,  karma, whatever. Because believing the dots will connect down the road will give you confidence to follow your heart. Even if it leads you off the well worn path. And that will make all the difference. ” – Steve Jobs

What I wanted at the time made no sense..
Only looking back it made perfect sense. I think the universe speaks to us.                            We just don’t know how to translate its language yet.

Nr. 5 Dream Big and Ask For Help From Others.
With 3.2 billion people online and only an email, tweet or Facebook message away,   ask for nothing and you will receive nothing. Ask for a new life and you will receive a new life. Ask for the world and you will receive the world.

Nr. 6 People Are Good Everywhere; and that we shouldn’t be judged by the actions    of our governments.  There’s no shortage of honesty, generosity, respect and kindness on every corner of this earth.

Nr. 7 Realize, You Are The Creator.
You always have been and always will be in complete control of your fate and destiny. Realize that the things you believe that are stopping you, are nothing but excuses.
Because the only thing standing in the way of living your dreams is you.

Walking with the Ancient Ones

Image result for hippocrates,

Following are Hippocrates unique views on understanding God and the universe:

Hippocrates emphasized that we humans did not have the mental compacity           to understand God, we probably needed a completely new way of thinking.

We might have to believe that this is possible that something exist without a beginning or end.

The very word existance might be foreign to God.

It is possible that something could be without a purpose. It is possible that understanding itself does not exist with God.

We humans can’t possibly understand God within these limits.

But all is not hopeless, it isn’t that God wanted his ways in doing things in secret    for he has given us a way to what we call understanding. That way is this:

It is through love. Love is one thing that God and humans have in common. But it is not a love that you experience just in poetry and romance.  Hippocrates says it is a love that has to be researched and studied as if it was a human element, though a element it is not.

Today we are challenged on many fronts: lifestyle and diet, , stress, toxic chemicals in our food/water/environment, deficientintestinal flora, consumption of alcohol, and frequent use of antibiotics all deplete our healthy supply of beneficial enzymes and bacteria. This allows disease to take hold beginning with yeast strains. Supplementing with friendly bacteria help keep harmful bacteria from multiplying in our intestines

Greek Medicine.net: Gives information and guidance on the theory and practice of Greek Medicine and Medical Astrology as a traditional system of natural healing.
.
Hippocrates of Kos (460-377 Before Common Era, BCE) is universally recognized as the father of modern medicine, which is based on observation of clinical signs and rational conclusions, and does not rely on religious or magical beliefs. Hippocratic medicine was influenced by the Pythagorean theory that Nature was made of four elements (water, earth, wind and fire), and therefore, in an analogous way, the body consisted of four fluids or ‘humors’ (black bile, yellow bile, phlegm and blood).
 The physician had to reinstate the healthy balance of these humors by facilitating the healing work of ‘benevolent Nature’. The Hippocratic Oath contains the Pythagorean duties of justice, secrecy, respect for teachers and solidarity with peers. The clinical and ethical basics of medical practice as well as most clinical terms used even today have their origins in Hippocrates. His contribution in clinical medicine is immense.
 Asclepiades of Bithynia (124-40 BCE) was the first physician who established Greek medicine in Rome. Influenced by the Epicurean philosophy, he adhered to atomic theory, chance and evolution, and did not accept the theory of a ‘benevolent Nature’.
.
He suggested that the human body is composed of molecules and void spaces, and that diseases are caused by alteration of form or position of a patient’s molecules. Asclepiades favored naturalistic therapeutic methods such as a healthy diet, massage and physical exercise. Above all, he introduced the friendly, sympathetic, pleasing and painless treatment of patients into medical practice, influenced by the teachings of Epicurus on pleasure and friendship.’
.
He was the first who made the highly important division of diseases into acute and chronic ones and to perform an elective non-emergency tracheotomy. As the founder of the Methodic School, Asclepiades was the first known physician who spoke about what is known today as molecular medicine.

Life and works

It is known that while Hippocrates was alive, he was admired as a physician and teacher. His younger contemporary Plato referred to him twice. In the Protagoras Plato called Hippocrates “the Asclepiad of Cos” who taught students for fees, and he implied that Hippocrates was as well known as a physician as Polyclitus and Phidias were as sculptors. It is now widely accepted that an “Asclepiad” was not a temple priest or a member of a physicians’ guild but instead was a physician belonging to a family that had produced well-known physicians for generations. Plato’s second reference occurs in the Phaedrus, in which Hippocrates is referred to as a famous Asclepiad who had a philosophical approach to medicine.
Meno, a pupil of Aristotle, specifically stated in his history of medicine the views of Hippocrates on the causation of diseases, namely, that undigested residues were produced by unsuitable diet and that these residues excreted vapours, which passed into the body generally and produced diseases. Aristotle said that Hippocrates was called “the Great Physician” but that he was small in stature (Politics).
A wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings, and learn how by his own thought to derive benefit from his illnesses. Hippocrates

Meno, a pupil of Aristotle, specifically stated in his history of medicine the views of Hippocrates on the causation of diseases, namely, that undigested residues were produced by unsuitable diet and that these residues excreted vapours, which passed into the body generally and produced diseases. Aristotle said that Hippocrates was called “the Great Physician” but that he was small in stature (Politics).
These are the only extant contemporary, or near-contemporary, references to Hippocrates. Five hundred years later, the Greek physician Soranus wrote a life of Hippocrates, but the contents of this and later lives were largely traditional or imaginative. Throughout his life Hippocrates appears to have traveled widely in Greece and Asia Minor practicing his art and teaching his pupils, and he presumably taught at the medical school at Cos quite frequently. His birth and death dates are traditional but may well be approximately accurate. Undoubtedly, Hippocrates was a historical figure, a great physician who exercised a permanent influence on the development of medicine and on the ideals and ethics of the physician.
Hippocrates’ reputation, and myths about his life and his family, began to grow in the Hellenistic period, about a century after his death. During this period, the Museum of Alexandria in Egypt collected for its library literary material from preceding periods in celebration of the past greatness of Greece. So far as it can be inferred, the medical works that remained from the Classical period (among the earliest prose writings in Greek) were assembled as a group and called the works of Hippocrates (Corpus Hippocraticum). Linguists and physicians subsequently wrote commentaries on them, and, as a result, all the virtues of the Classical medical works were eventually attributed to Hippocrates and his personality constructed from them.
The virtues of the Hippocratic writings are many, and, although they are of varying lengths and literary quality, they are all simple and direct, earnest in their desire to help, and lacking in technical jargon and elaborate argument. The works show such different views and styles that they cannot be by one person, and some were clearly written in later periods. Yet all the works of the Corpus share basic assumptions about how the body works and what disease is, providing a sense of the substance and appeal of ancient Greek medicine as practiced by Hippocrates and other physicians of his era. Prominent among these attractive works are the Epidemics, which give annual records of weather and associated diseases, along with individual case histories and records of treatment, collected from cities in northern Greece. Diagnosis and prognosis are frequent subjects.
 Other treatises explain how to set fractures and treat wounds, feed and comfort patients, and take care of the body to avoid illness. Treatises called Diseases deal with serious illnesses, proceeding from the head to the feet, giving symptoms, prognoses, and treatments. There are works on diseases of women, childbirth, and pediatrics. Prescribed medications, other than foods and local salves, are generally purgatives to rid the body of the noxious substances thought to cause disease. Some works argue that medicine is indeed a science, with firm principles and methods, although explicit medical theory is very rare. The medicine depends on a mythology of how the body works and how its inner organs are connected. The myth is laboriously constructed from experience, but it must be remembered that there was neither systematic research nor dissection of human beings in Hippocrates’ time. Hence, while much of the writing seems wise and correct, there are large areas where much is unknown.

Human Health: Fact or Fiction?

Technical medical science developed in the Hellenistic period and after. Surgery, pharmacy, and anatomy advanced; physiology became the subject of serious speculation; and philosophic criticism improved the logic of medical theories. Competing schools in medicine (first Empiricism and later Rationalism) claimed Hippocrates as the origin and inspiration of their doctrines.

In the 2nd century ad, the physician Galen of Pergamum developed his magnificent medical system, a synthesis of preceding work and his own additions that became the basis of European and Arabic medicine into the Renaissance. Galen was argumentative and long-winded, often abusive of contemporaries and earlier physicians, but at the same time, with exaggerated reverence that ignored five centuries of progress, he claimed that Hippocrates was the source of all that he himself knew and practiced. For later physicians, Hippocrates stood as the inspirational source, while the more difficult Galen offered the substantial details.

 As time went on, reverence for the past had to contend with new notions of scientific method and new discoveries. In the process, Galen’s authority was undone, but Hippocrates’ eminence as father of medicine remained. Scientific progress in fields such as anatomy, chemistry, microbiology, and microscopy, especially beginning in the 16th and 17th centuries, demanded that Galen’s medicine be criticized and revised part by part. Arguments against Galenic medicine were often more effective when they were presented as returns to true Hippocratic medicine.
New scientific methodology argued for a return to observation and study of nature, abandoning bookish authority. The simple and direct writings of the Hippocratic Collection read well as sample empirical texts that escheweddogma. By the late 19th century, Galen was irrelevant to medical practice, and general knowledge of Hippocratic medical writings was beginning to fade. However, today Hippocrates still continues to represent the humane, ethical aspects of the medical profession.

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, was a wise man. Much of his wisdom, which is now over 2000 years old, has stood the test of time. Obviously, not all disease begins in the gut. … However, there is evidence that many chronic metabolic diseases do, in fact, begin in the gut.

Impaired gut health may cause unwanted substances to “leak” into the bloodstream. This causes inflammation, which may be driving chronic metabolic disease.

Karmic E-Mot-ions

Displaying

Karma is a concept in both Jainism and Buddhism that is a check and balance system      for suffering on earth. Karma, as I will attempt to explain, is not ethereal in nature, but      a matter of science when viewed from an electrical perspective.

According to The Buddha, there is no Soul/Self. Instead we are composed of these five elements:  https://www.newdawnmagazine.com/articles/mystery-thailand-monks-magic-the-spirit-world

1.   Material form.
2.   Feelings.
3.   Perceptions.
4.   Mental formations.
5.   Consciousness.

These are called The Five Aggregates and when all these components work together,            we get a false sense of Self or Soul.

The question that one must ask is: who deems which [human] acts as karmic. To further understand this question we must first look at the difference between karma in Jainism and Buddhism.

In Jainism, karma is not an effect or result; instead it is literally a real substance that attaches itself to a person’s Jiva. The Jiva is “an individual life monad or separate individual self, or the aggregate of all life monads or separate selves” (merriam-webster, 2010).

I see all mythologies, history, folklore and karma from an electrical e-motional (energy in motion) perspective, an electrical blueprint if you will (Marshall, 2006). Man, in history, when connected to the Universe (god(s)), embodies purity of pulse (clear of sin, desire, suffering, etc.), and can then manifest purity into mechanistic and electrical apparatuses, of which allows humans to live in harmony with their god(s).

Every cell in our body, including the brain, exists in a homeostatic electrical existence. Anything electrical is therefore magnetic, and as such, has a north and south pole. This magnetic field, like the Jiva field, attracts and repels matter/antimatter, purity or impurities, thinness or thickness.

The fundamental principals of attraction and repelling of Jiva is affected by ones connection or disconnection to not only one’s own consciousness, but to the Universal homeostatic Consciousness. A homeostatic symbiotic relationship between one’s human consciousness and Universal Consciousness (God), could not be understood by the commoner.

In order for the commoner to understand electromagnetic consciousness, it had to be placed literarily in simple mythological nature stories and heroic tales. Stories such as    the Bhagavad Gita, The tales of Gilgamesh, Odysseus, Hercules, Jesus, etc., are all the same heroic adventure stories just expressed with different persons, places and things. Their heroic journey is representative of how to rejoin and align with the pure flow of consciousness from a state of disconnection by eliminating materialistic physical, mental and spiritual attachments.

These [mythological, historical] stories are meant to instruct an initiate on how to realign one’s disconnected [cellular] consciousness¾that’s caused by desire, suffering and the like¾back to the constant flow of pure potential of Universal Consciousness.

Dr. Robert Becker, author of The Electric Body, connects the cells in the body with consciousness. “If the current controlled the way nerves work in the brain as in the rest    of the body, then it must regulate consciousness to some event.”

If, for whatever the reason, a cell is not receiving its regulated allotted energy¾from the regulatory system that instructs the pituitary/hypothalamus and the autonomic nervous system, which contain the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems¾the cell will “lock down” and not receive the vital nutrients it needs to operate in homeostasis (Diamond, 1978). To have a cell open up and receive the proper nutrients, it must first receive the proper electrical current. This is done by release limitation and restrictions that the mind/body have created.

If a person’s [emotional] thoughts are negative and shadowy, then like energy/electricity will magnetically attract like energy, as well as repel positive energy. Simply said, depressed people will attract depressed people (misery love company); and the converse, happy people attract happy people.

In Buddhism, we can simply say that good actions lead to good karma and bad action to bad karma. Both Jainism and Buddhism allow an individual to address, balance or eliminate the karma, or hop off the wheel as it were.

Karma can simply be explained mechanically, chemically, electrically and e-motionally.     I referred earlier to the anatomic nervous system.  The nervous system is electricity, and   as mentioned earlier, carries with it, a magnetic field (Becker, 1985). The field is the same field referred to in Jainism (as well as in Taoism). The attracti0n of a  ‘real substance’ is a magnetic attraction caused by the influx of your emotional/electrical biological states.         I refer to bio-logical as empirically and patternistically logical.

In his book, Power vs Force, Dr. David Hawkins explains that neurons that become limited generate an attractor element. This in turn creates what is called a constraint satisfaction system (Li; Spiegel, 1992). He further explains ¾ what I am calling karmic attraction ¾ Dr. Hawkins infers to this attractor field as psychopathology occurrence, which can be tested kinesiologically (Hoffman, 1992)

Staying with this logic, the physiological body doesn’t know the difference between a  sweet candy bar and a sweet hug. It is the recipient of either  then activates a response, which then causes the pituitary/hypothalamus  to tell certain hormones to excrete or secrete.

With the candy bar or hug, the body will cause the insulin (or sugar) to activate/ deactivate, thus flooding the body with the feel-good/bad, healthy/sick response.

Now, if any negative thoughts were associated with the candy bar, such as, “Oh, I am  going to regret this later.” or the like thinking is emoted via a hug from a creepy person,       the body will cause the sympathetic (fight or flight) system to activate and flood the body with adrenalin and large amounts of cortisol,  both of which are very acidic to the body, specifically with the cells. The cell will recognize that the flood of acid is detrimental for itself and will go into self-preservation mode and shut down, thus not receiving anything that will harm it. Like karmic debt, one must return to a state of [neutral/homeostatic] calm to receive pure consciousness/enlightenment.

In order for a state of neutrality/calm to occur a person must think thoughts that are safe or relaxing, thus activating the parasympathetic system. This, in return, floods the body with potassium, calcium and other chemicals, which balances the pH to a safe level. After the cell feels that it is safe to ‘open’ up again, it will then receive the proper electricity and therefore receive the proper nutrients, hence, the balance of karma.

If a person is anxious, nervous, or worried, their state of mind is in the future focusing     on what has yet to happen [negatively]. If a person is angry or depressed, their mind is focusing in the past.

In either case, one’s state of mind is not in the present state, or as I will call it, neutral.      It is this neutral state [of being] that frees the mind and pituitary/hypothalamus, and therefore the electrical system and cell to fully electrically receive the optimal benefits from the electromagnetic neutral universe.

In addition to the body and cells being an electromagnetic system, so too is the earth. Because of the earth’s core and the rotation of the earth, an electromagnetic field is produced. The Universe too is electrical because of its dark, gray and white matter and therefore magnetic.

In spiritual terms this also translates into physical (human), mental (earth), spiritual (Universe), or another way of translating this is mechanical, chemical, electrical. It is    also referred to as the Known, Know, and knowing, all of which refers to Knowledge. Within the word knowledge, is the word now. Being in the ‘now’ is what the ascetics    were and still are trying to attain.

The universe, earth and humans all are naturally in alignment, electrically speaking.

We (universe, earth and human) are all made of the basic elements, which are fire, water, earth and air (atoms, ions, electrons, protons, quarks, etc.) All of these also produce motion and therefore create energy, thus a magnetic field.

Earth my Body
Water my Blood
Air my Breath
Fire my Spirit

When we humans are in the present [now] moment our cellular polarities are in alignment with the earth and universe’s polarities. When we are in the past or future, we disconnect from the universal [alignment] flow as it were. The word disaster breaks-down as dis-aster. In other words, you have disconnected from star energy or universal electromagnetic flow.

As humans think, electrical pulse waves emit and create patterns. These electrical waves are magnetically charged and therefore will be attracted and re-corded into the magnetic fields of the earth as well as the universe’s field. In mythology, this is called the Akashic records and it is where all knowledge [electromagnetic thought patterns] are stored, an electromagnetic data base as it were.

In essence, all humans are batteries. In order to maintain homeostasis (a balanced life),  we must keep our electrical systems in alignment with earth and universes’ polarities. Humans are the microcosm of the earth and the earth is the microcosm of the universe.

What the ascetics are trying to do in their devotion is align with these electrical fields by disconnecting themselves from the past or future [events]. By putting themselves through extreme physical stress, the autonomic nervous system will rewire itself and therefore will ‘adjust’ or recalibrate the nervous system to shut down certain parts of the brain, so they can endure pain. Much like a boxer who gets hit in the face multiple times, after awhile, the nerves in the face will ‘disconnect’ or numb, thereby allowing the boxer to continue getting punched without it hurting.

Ascetics, for the most part are attempting to be detached and free. This freedom is pure consciousness; that which lacks attachments and limitations. They are attempting infinite pure potentiality in human form. They are striving to bring God(s)¾pure electrical energy¾into the dimension of form. When pure potentiality is flowing through the human cells without resistance, the flow of electricity will generate enormous amounts of step-up transformed magnetism.

When Jesus rose from the dead and returned three days later (KJV Bible) he was illuminated. This high vibrating magnetism, as it is in electrical application, a servo magnet that when electricity is applied will open or close a switch. In this story, the switch literally opens photonic pathways into pure electrical (God) consciousness through a human shell whose cellular matrix is equipped to handle high amounts of electricity. This is what the ascetics were really attempting to access through cutting off certain neural pathways of the brain’s neural network.

The physical body regulates the chemical body, and the chemical body is regulated by the electrical systems, and the electrical system receives its electrostatic/dynamic power from the electromagnetics of the earth/universe. All these then operate within the parameters  of Hermetic law, which states “As above, so below.”

This too encompasses the saying, “what comes around, goes around.” The essence of   these statements, when observed from an electrical perspective should begin to make  [bio] logical sense. Electricity must make a complete loop back to the source from whence it came in order to produce its potential. If the electrical path [in humans] is resisted in any way [emotionally], then the power entering the human is restricted and therefore will cause cellular degeneration and restriction (suffering). The first of the four noble truths of Buddhism is dukkha, which is the same as discontent, dissatisfaction, fear, suffering, etc.

To operate fully (balance karma), one must be “free” from the flow of emotions.   Emotions, electrically speaking, breaks-down thusly:

E-(energy) in motion. Motion breaks down into ‘emoting’-ions. Karma has the letters ARK. Ark (same as arc) is an electrical spark; our synapsis arc from one ganglion to another in our brains.

Karma simply translates into resonance / dissonance, harmony / cacophony, open cells or closed cells. The ultimate decider and regulator of your “karma” (brains electrical arcs) is you, no one else. Staying tuned in to the ‘now’ gains you mental clarity, thus a clear path.

°De flow of your life °

No automatic alt text available.
The reality of the soul is among the most important questions of life. Although religions    go on and on about its existence, how do we know if souls really exist? A string of new scientific experiments helps answer this ancient spiritual question.
.

The idea of the soul is bound up with the idea of a future life and our belief in a continued existence after death. It’s said to be the ultimate animating principle by which we think and feel, but isn’t dependent on the body. Many infer its existence without scientific analysis or reflection. Indeed, the mysteries of birth and death, the play of consciousness during dreams (or after a few martinis), and even the commonest mental operations – such as imagination and memory – suggest the existence of a vital life force – an élan vital – that exists independent of the body.

Yet, the current scientific paradigm doesn’t recognize this spiritual dimension of life. We’re told we’re just the activity of carbon and some proteins; we live awhile and die.    And the universe? It too has no meaning. It has all been worked out in the equations –    no need for a soul.  But  biocentrism  –  a new ‘theory of everything’  –  challenges this traditional, materialistic model of reality. In all directions, this outdated paradigm leads  to insoluble enigmas, to ideas that are ultimately irrational. But knowledge is the prelude to wisdom, and soon our worldview will catch up with the facts.

Of course, most spiritual people view the soul as emphatically more definitive than the scientific concept. It’s considered the incorporeal essence of a person, and is said to be immortal and transcendent of material existence.

When scientists speak of the soul (if at all), it’s usually in a materialistic context, or treated as a poetic synonym for the mind. Everything knowable about the “soul” can be learned by studying the functioning of the brain. In their view, neuroscience is the only branch of scientific study relevant to understanding the soul.

Traditionally, science has dismissed the soul as an object of human belief, or reduced it to a psychological concept that shapes our cognition of the observable natural world. The terms “life” and “death” are thus nothing more than the common concepts of “biological life” and “biological death.” The animating principle is simply the laws of chemistry and physics. You (and all the poets and philosophers that ever lived) are just dust orbiting the core of the Milky Way galaxy.

As I sit here in my office surrounded by piles of scientific books, I can’t find a single reference to the soul, or any notion of an immaterial, eternal essence that occupies our being. Indeed, a soul has never been seen under an electron microscope, nor spun in the laboratory in a test tube or ultra-centrifuge. According to these books, nothing appears to survive the human body after death.

While neuroscience has made tremendous progress illuminating the functioning of the brain, why we have a subjective experience remains mysterious. The problem of the soul lies exactly here, in understanding the nature of the self, the “I” in existence that feels and lives life. But this isn’t just a problem for biology and cognitive science, but for the whole of Western natural philosophy itself.

Our current worldview – the world of objectivity and naïve realism – is beginning to show fatal cracks. Of course, this will not surprise many of the philosophers and other readers who, contemplating the works of men such as Plato, Socrates and Kant, and of Buddha and other great spiritual teachers, kept wondering about the relationship between the universe and the mind of man.

Recently, biocentrism and other scientific theories have also started to challenge the old physico-chemical paradigm, and to ask some of the difficult questions about life: Is there  a soul? Does anything endure the ravages of time?

Life and consciousness are central to this new view of being, reality and the cosmos. Although the current scientific paradigm is based on the belief that the world has an objective observer-independent existence, real experiments suggest just the opposite.

We think life is just the activity of atoms and particles, which spin around for a while and then dissipate into nothingness. But if we add life to the equation, we can explain some of the major puzzles of modern science, including the uncertainty principle, entanglement, and the fine-tuning of the laws that shape the universe.

Consider the famous two-slit experiment. When you watch a particle go through the holes, it behaves like a bullet, passing through one slit or the other. But if no one observes the particle, it exhibits the behavior of a wave and can pass through both slits at the same time. This and other experiments tell us that unobserved particles exist only as ‘waves of probability’ as the great Nobel laureate Max Born demonstrated in 1926.

They’re statistical predictions – nothing but a likely outcome. Until observed, they have  no real existence; only when the mind sets the scaffolding in place, can they be thought of as having duration or a position in space. Experiments make it increasingly clear that even mere knowledge in the experimenter’s mind is sufficient to convert possibility to reality.

Question: “What is the human soul?”

Answer: The Bible is not perfectly clear as to the nature of the human soul. But from studying the way the word soul is used in Scripture, we can come to some conclusions. Simply stated, the human soul is the part of a person that is not physical.

It is the part of every human being that lasts eternally after the body experiences death. Genesis 35:18 describes the death of Rachel, Jacob’s wife, saying she named her son “as her soul was departing.” From this we know that the soul is different from the body and that it continues to live after physical death.

The human soul is central to the personhood of a human being. As George MacDonald said, “You don’t have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.” In other words, personhood is not based on having a body. A soul is what is required. Repeatedly in the Bible, people are referred to as “souls” (Exodus 31:14; Proverbs 11:30), especially in contexts that focus on the value of human life and personhood or on the concept of a “whole being” (Psalm 16:9-10; Ezekiel 18:4; Acts 2:41; Revelation 18:13).

The human soul is distinct from the heart (Deuteronomy 26:16; 30:6) and the spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 4:12) and the mind (Matthew 22:37; Mark 12:30; Luke 10:27). The human soul is created by God (Jeremiah 38:16). It can be strong or unsteady (2 Peter 2:14); it can be lost or saved (James 1:21; Ezekiel 18:4). We know that the human soul needs atonement (Leviticus 17:11) and is the part of us that is purified and protected by the truth and the work of the Holy Spirit (1 Peter 1:22). Jesus is the great Shepherd of souls (1 Peter 2:25).

Matthew 11:29 tells us that we can turn to Jesus Christ to find rest for our souls. Psalm 16:9-10 is a Messianic psalm that allows us to see that Jesus also had a soul. David wrote, “Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure. For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption.” This cannot be speaking of David (as Paul points out in Acts 13:35-37) because David’s body did see corruption and decay when he died. But Jesus Christ’s body never saw corruption (He was resurrected), and His soul was not abandoned to Sheol. Jesus, as the Son of Man, has a soul.

There is often confusion about the human spirit vs. the human soul. In places, Scripture seems to use the terms interchangeably, but there might be a subtle difference. Otherwise, how could the Word of God penetrate “even to dividing soul and spirit” (Hebrews 4:12)? When the Bible talks about man’s spirit, it is usually speaking of an inner force which animates a person in one direction or another. It is repeatedly shown as a mover, a dynamic force (e.g., Numbers 14:24).

It has been said that there are only two things that last: the Word of God (Mark 13:31) and the souls of men. This is because, like God’s Word, the soul is an imperishable thing. That thought should be both sobering and awe-inspiring. Every person you meet is an eternal soul. Every human being who has ever lived is a soul, and all of those souls are still in existence somewhere. The question is, where? The souls that reject God’s love are condemned to pay for their own sin, eternally, in hell (Romans 6:23). But the souls who acknowledge their own sinfulness and accept God’s gracious gift of forgiveness will live forever beside still waters with their Shepherd, wanting for nothing (Psalm 23:2).

 
Sentists say they can prove the existence of the soul.

Recognize GOD in Troubled Times

The Bible verse Psalms 46:10 says,  “Be still and know that I am God.”  When we face difficulties in our life that would make it seem as if we are on a ship being tossed upon       a stormy sea, how exactly can we be still while a storm rages around us?

Every time a trial comes to me or my family, I think of the words from the Bible in Psalms 46:10,  “Be still and know that I am God,”  and I am often comforted. Sometimes, though, I wonder just what it means to be still and what exactly I      need to do to make that happen.

  • When we face difficulties in our life that would make it seem as if we are on a ship being tossed upon a stormy sea, how exactly can we be still and a strength to our family while a storm rages around us? As I looked up the definition of still in the online Merriam Webster Dictionary, not only was I enlightened when I learned the definition for still, but learned very valuable lessons from its synonyms as well.Here are ten words and their definitions that can teach us how to be still in the times of a storm and recognize the power of God.
  • Still: free from noise or turbulence; untroubled

    When we are free from outside noise or turbulence, we are able to hear the still small voice of God’s Spirit as he comes to comfort and guide us through our trials. Some of the noise we experience that could be blocking our ability to feel God’s presence is our own worry. When we learn to change our thoughts from negative to positive, we are more able to feel God’s love because we are in harmony with him. The noise and turbulence is replaced by a sweet melody of peace.

  • Calm: a period or condition of freedom from storms;         a state of tranquility

    To be calm does not mean that the storm is no longer all around you, it means that the storm is no longer within you. The storms may still rage, but you are free from the effects of them. They no longer trouble you because you know in whom you have trusted. You are in a place where you no longer fear.

  • Hushed: to put at rest; mollify-to soothe in temper or disposition

    Often times, when trials come, we tend to get angry with God and cry out in complaint. When we do this, we lessen our ability to feel the Spirit, because we leave no room in our hearts for the Spirit to dwell. God cannot dwell in a heart that is full of anger. It is when we learn to put at rest our complaints and cast our burdens on the Lord, to hush our cries and wait upon him, that we will find solace. He will bind our broken hearts.

  • Peaceful: untroubled by conflict; devoid of violence or force

    Sometimes when difficulties arise, we allow the anger and frustrations from those trials to push us into violence, or we try to force our will upon the Lord. Neither one of these choices will bring us peace. When conflicts come and we are untroubled by them because of our faith in God, only then can we know peace.

  • Placid: serenely free of interruption or disturbance

    We can learn to be still as we pray, read scripture, go for a walk, meditate or give ourselves time to ponder free from interruption or disturbance. This not only allows us to communicate with our Heavenly Father, it allows our Heavenly Father to communicate with us.

  • Restful: marked by, affording, or suggesting rest and repose; being at rest

    Often times, the busyness of life makes it impossible for us to truly hear what God is trying to tell us. It is when we slow down and allow ourselves the opportunity to rest that our mind and heart can focus on those things that are of the greatest importance. God wants to talk to us, but we have to be ready and available to listen.

  • Serene: shining bright and steady

    While reading with my children during home-school, I learned that the sun does not rise and the sun does not set. It is an illusion. Instead, the Sun stays still, steady and bright, and as the Earth turns to face the sun, that is when the morning comes. The darkness of night comes when the Earth turns away. It is the same with us. In our trials, when we turn to face the Son, who is steady and bright, just like the Earth, we are filled with light. If instead we choose to turn away from him, the darkness of night will surely come. Choose to face the light.

  • Quiet: gentle, easy going, i.e. quiet nature

    When we are gentle and easygoing, we are more able to hear God’s commands. He gently persuades us to love him and serve others. We are more able to ease our own troubles, and we will carry God’s spirit within us, which will aid us in easing the burdens of others.

  • Stilly: in a calm manner

    When we approach life, and our trials, in a calm manner, we are more able to see the bigger picture and outline a plan of recovery. Not only does it allow us to have a clear mind, but it allows us to help calm the fears of those around us.

  • Tranquil: free from agitation of mind or spirit

    When our mind and spirit are still, our whole body is at peace. We are able to see things with a clear mind, feel things with a pure heart and hear the voice of our Heavenly Father with ears that are open and in tune with his spirit. We will know    God because we will be one with him.

    “Be still and know that I am God,” is not just a saying, it is a state of being. It is the ability to know God well enough to trust in his abilities to rescue you.  As we learn to   be still and trust in God, we come to know and understand that we are God’s children. We are never alone, never unaided and never forgotten. He will come to us.

  • All it takes is for us to be still.

EVERYTHING IS ENERGY

What Is Your Vibration?
by Sabrina Reber 

Just as there are no two snowflakes alike, no two souls in the entire universe have the same name or “soul signature”. That’s how incredibly unique and special you are. Your vibration is a direct reflection of your inner thoughts, feelings, beliefs, choice of words, how well you take care of yourself, the Earth and others. The higher your vibration the more light you hold, the faster your light particles vibrate, the higher your consciousness and the stronger you are connected to your soul and God self.

When your vibration is low, your light particles are vibrating slowly and become condensed. Your energy literally feels heavy because you are not in alignment with your soul or divine self and are mostly operating from your lower self or ego. Distorted beliefs, fear, anger, resentment, blame, guilt, jealousy, judgment, shame, addiction, unforgiveness, conditional love, lack of self worth, greed, separation consciousness and poor health keep you in very dense low vibrating energy.
When you are a high vibrational being you recognize your divinity and the divinity within others. You are in alignment with your soul, which is nourished by spirit, you are vibrantly healthy and your life flows with ease and grace.We are much more than our physical body; we are actually multidimensional, energetic, spiritual beings having a physical human experience.It is important for us to bring into our awareness the many layers of our energetic body. This is the key to our self-empowerment.
When it is brought into our awareness, our soul will begin to integrate all of the layers of ourselves bringing us into a state of wholeness. Each of us needs to become aware of who we really are and reclaim all of our energy.When we become aware of our energetic bodies and set our intention to heal, balance and activate them, we have the potential to raise our vibration to such a point that each layer of our energetic body will unify and activate the creation of our “light body”.
When this occurs we have reached a very high vibrational state where our spiritual self or God self is able to merge with our physical body. This cannot occur until we have raised our vibration high enough for divine union to occur. This is the moment of en-lighten-ment and the return to one’s true spiritual essence and identity.

Although we identify ourselves with our physical body we are actually energy or light beings. EVERYTHING IS ENERGY.  Every thought,  word,  feeling and thing       is energy, everything! Things that appear to be solid are actually very tightly compacted energy particles creating a shape, form or physical matter.  Our physical body, that part     of us that is not eternal, is surrounded by our eternal divine essence consisting of our emotional, mental and spiritual energetic layers.

Being reborn is when our divine essence or God self merges with our physical body and  we experience complete oneness with God and all beings. We experience our true nature, the truth of our being,  which will catapult  us  into a new journey  of  self-transcendence. This is divine plan for everyone to eventually reach this state of divine union helping us    to bring Heaven (Spirit) here down on Earth (Matter).

We are in the process of planetary ascension and everyone choosing to stay on this planet will raise their vibration high enough to anchor in their Spiritual self or God self. Each of us are being asked to surrender to this process allowing ourselves to be “reborn” shedding the illusions of the ego and shining light on our shadow consciousness so we can bring all of our disowned rejected parts of ourselves into wholeness.

Although our spiritual self is never separated from us it does reside in a higher vibrating dimension, several feet above our head, called the spiritual realm. The Creator has given us free will and it must be our choice to choose to climb the mountain of self in order to access and activate our divine birthright of God realization.

​This is divine plan and bringing our higher vibrating, loving, true selves down into our physical body is how we will heal the planet.  Expecting someone or something outside      of ourselves to save us is dis empowering and will not get us anywhere. No one is going    to save us; we have to save ourselves.

We have to heal ourselves and we have to heal the planet.

We have to take personal responsibility for our own vibration and salvation. We cannot give our power away anymore to the churches, the governments, the healthcare system or the financial system.  Your power to change resides in yourself.  You must commit to your own soul growth and spiritual development and shift your focus from trying to accomplish “things” to devotion and connection with your God self.​

Your vibration is your personal energy frequency. It is a culmination of every life you have ever lived, every thought you have ever had and every action you have ever performed. It is the energy that surrounds and permeates every cell in your body. Your vibration is your divine signature, your soul essence, and it is special only to you

👓💡🔭 Why Not Try? 🔭💡👓
♥️♥️♥️
If I am afraid to try something, only because I’ve never seen or heard of it before, how can I know it was something to fear? If I’m afraid to taste a fruit, just because I’ve never seen it before, how can I know if it is or isn’t delicious? Fear can create blocks in any aspect of life. And usually, it’s simply fear of the unknown. Fear! Used to control this entire planet!

Always teaching us to turn away from that which we don‘t know. If it isn’t taught or promoted by a book, religion or government, we are “taught to believe” we should fear. This keeps us in place. nUnwilling to explore.  But,  fear what?  A new thought?  A new opportunity? Fear of something just because it’s different? Should we fear something,   only because it doesn’t fit the mold others have created?

That’s certainly what we’re taught. Well! I don’t like being taught. I don’t like being led. I did that for a lifetime. Now, I decide for myself. I lead myself. I stay open minded. Always open to any possibility. In doing that, I’ve seen what many would say are impossibilities… happen. Limitless means no limits. And unconditional love does not judge.

Without exception. Yes, some people can be difficult. But once I understood that each is a soul of love, I could look beyond the physical body they are within. Just because they don’t remember,  yet,  who they truly are,  changes nothing.  They are all just like I am.  I am not this physical body,  any more than I am the coat I wear on the outside of it.  I am the soul inside. I am the life force. My soul never dies.


I am so much more than the emotion driven body I live in.  I am love.  My light cannot       be extinguished.  I just need to shine.  Without fear,   impossibilities become possible.
Without fear,  I can love unconditionally.  Not just myself but,  all that is.  If I’m afraid to   try, to look or listen beyond what I already know,  I will miss something.  Something that might improve me. Maybe even something that might advance my consciousness. I prefer to not go backward, to not stay in place. But to keep moving forward. And forward is always loaded with the unknown. I fear guns. I fear poison. But, the unknown? No way.

Broken Hearted

Image may contain: 1 person

The death of Debbie Reynolds  Whom Died: December 28, 2016, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center,  Los Angeles, CA  just one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher passed away is a reminder of the crushing effect grief  can have on the body.  The 84-year-old Oscar-nominated performer reportedly suffered a stroke Wednesday.

The official cause of death has not yet been disclosed.

“She wanted to be with Carrie,” her son Todd Fisher told Variety.

What are heart failure, heart attack and cardiac arrest?

Broken heart syndrome,” or stress-induced cardiomyopathy is a very specific medical condition that has been well-documented in recent years. It can be caused by an intense emotional event, like the death of a loved one, giving a public speech, or even from a surprise birthday party. And many times broken heart syndrome has been blamed in       cases when one spouse dies soon after the other.
According to Dr. Ilan Wittstein, assistant professor of medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, when the condition strikes, a part of the heart muscle         is suddenly weakened and the heart isn’t pumping,  becoming ineffective. However,        the condition is usually treatable, and rarely fatal.

http://www.cbsnews.com/videos/could-broken-heart-syndrome-have-caused-debbie-reynolds-death/

“Grief is so complicated because there’s physiology, there’s self-care and then there         are a lot of unknowns,” Dr. Sharonne Hayes, professor of medicine and cardiovascular diseases at the Mayo Clinic, told TODAY.  “Medicine doesn’t entirely understand how  grief and hope affect people’s life.”

RELATED: Yes, broken hearts are real. But they’re not what you think

Among her own patients, Hayes has seen a number of people suffer from broken heart syndrome. Both acute grief as well as chronic sadness can affect the heart, Hayes said. Grief increases some stress hormones, and it can raise blood pressure and heart rate.

Stress in general can also play a role in strokes. The hormones from stress can cause plaque that is already in the artery to rupture. Dr. Wittstein explains that there is a way  for broken heart syndrome to cause a stroke.  When a large portion of the front wall of    the heart isn’t pumping as effectively the blood remains stagnant.  Blood also has to be moving and if it doesn’t it begins to clot. The clot can then break loose and can go to the brain.

Stress also causes elevated blood pressure, which makes people more prone to strokes, it has been shown to increase inflammation,  which is also a risk for cardiovascular disease. The more common kind of stroke, an ischemic stroke, is caused by a blood clot that blocks a blood vessel in the brain.

Self-care also plays a role in handling grief. Hayes, who was not involved in Reynolds’ treatment, but commented on the effect of grief in general, said it’s unknown what chronic medical conditions Reynolds might have had. Caregivers often don’t take very good care of themselves while at their loved one’s bedside.

“Did she skip medications? Not eat? Not stay hydrated?” Hayes noted. “That’s an element as well.”

Some of it may also be a will to live. People who are ill often have mental or emotional “targets” for living: “I want to make it through my kid’s birthday” or see them graduate    or get married or celebrate Christmas. Take those targets away, and it’s a shock.

“I think spirituality and optimism and resilience has a part in this,” Hayes said.

“I’ve seen estimates that about 1 percent of perceived heart attacks” are because of broken-heart syndrome, said Dr. Anne Curtis, chair of medicine at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo, “and that seems about right. I think every cardiologist has seen cases. We tell people that many will return to normal or near-normal heart function.”

Ms. Reynolds’s did not, though the timing of her death may have just coincided with her daughter’s. In her 2013 memoir, Ms. Reynolds wrote about suffering a mini-stroke and partial kidney failure. In 2015, she was awarded an honorary Oscar but was too sick to attend the ceremony.

In interviews, Ms. Fisher had talked about how frail her mother was. “It’s a lot of times terrifying, but watching my mother, who’s incredibly resilient, coping with certain health issues that she’s had,” she told National Public Radio this fall. In an interview with People magazine in May, she said her mother had had a “spinal issue” but had “recovered amazingly.”

Ms. Fisher, 60, died on Tuesday after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles a few days earlier. On Wednesday, Ms. Reynolds was rushed to an emergency room amid reports that she had possibly had a stroke.

Yet — if indeed a stroke was the primary cause of death, as her son, Todd Fisher said,         a heart squeezed  by  the  sudden loss of a beloved daughter  could have contributed.     The stunned organ,  especially in a person who might have had any of the underlying cardiovascular infirmities of aging, could increase the likelihood of a clot forming and moving to the brain.

In a 2005 paper in The New England Journal of Medicine, doctors at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine reviewed cases of 18 women and one man who landed         in coronary care units in Baltimore, between 1999 and 2003, with chest pains and no signs  of classic heart attack on exam.

Most were older, but one was 27 and another 32. The doctors, led by Dr. Ilan Wittstein, nicknamed the condition broken-heart syndrome   and noted that it occurred not only   after grief but after any sudden stress. All of the patients survived.

“We had people who’d been held up at gunpoint, who’d been up in front of a group            to speak, who were severely claustrophobic and in an M.R.I. scanner, who were angry        and in heated arguments,” Dr. Wittstein said in an interview.

Dr. Wittstein said that at the time the paper appeared virtually the only mentions of        the syndrome were in Japanese medical literature. Now, he said, thousands of cases     have been reported, and about 90 percent of them are women in middle age or older.    One possible reason, he said, is that estrogen protects the heart’s smaller vessels —      those most affected by stress hormones — and estrogen levels drop with age.

There have been cases  of  well-known couples  dying in close succession.

The country stars Johnny and June Cash whom died within months of each other,     after a long marriage. The former football star Doug Flutie’s parents died on the same  day,  both of heart attacks.  To some medical experts, what Ms. Reynolds experienced          is one  of the greatest traumas of all.

How trauma affects your Cellular Memory

“No one wants to change the order of nature, that is the first thing I thought when                I heard,” said Dr. Victor Fornari, a psychiatrist at Northwell Health on Long Island.            “A parent outliving a child — it’s one of the most unspeakable things there is.”

But can you really die of a broken heart?
“Broken heart syndrome — which is, in fact, a real thing — is when someone finds out some shocking news, typically terrible news, and there’s a massive release of these stress hormones that are released into the bloodstream, and the heart is then bombarded with these stress hormones,” said Dr. Matthew Lorber, a psychiatrist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York.
“This could be the news, certainly, of a loved one dying, which is where the ‘broken heart syndrome’ name comes from. This could be the news of getting a divorce. This could be a boss coming in and telling you you’re fired — anything that can cause intense stress,” Lorber said.
The news doesn’t have to be bad; it could even be good news delivered in a sudden, shocking way, explained Lorber.
“Anything that causes a shock or startles can cause broken heart syndrome,” he said.

Here is more information from the American Heart Association:

Breakdown of a Broken Heart
Broken heart syndrome, also called stress-induced cardiomyopathy or takotsubo cardiomyopathy, can strike even if  you’re healthy.  (Tako tsubo, by the way, are   octopus traps that resemble the pot-like shape of the stricken heart.)

Women are more likely than men to experience the sudden, intense chest pain — the reaction to a surge of stress hormones — that can be caused by an emotionally stressful event.  It could be the death of a loved one or even a divorce, breakup or physical separation, betrayal or romantic rejection.  It could even happen  after a good shock    (like winning the lottery.)

Broken heart syndrome may be misdiagnosed as a heart attack because the symptoms and test results are similar. In fact, tests show dramatic changes in rhythm and blood substances that are typical of a heart attack. But unlike a heart attack, there’s no evidence of blocked heart arteries in broken heart syndrome.

In broken heart syndrome,  a part of  your heart temporarily enlarges and doesn’t     pump well, while the rest of your heart functions normally or with even more forceful contractions.  Researchers are just starting  to learn the causes,  and how to diagnose   and treat it.

The bad news: Broken heart syndrome can lead to severe, short-term heart muscle failure.

The good news: Broken heart syndrome is usually treatable. Most people who experience it make a full recovery within weeks, and they’re at low risk for it happening again (although in rare cases in can be fatal).

Symptoms and patients

The symptoms are intense chest pain, shortness of breath and extreme changes in blood pressure. When the stress hormones barrage the heart, they actually change its rhythm — speeding and slowing the heart in succession — causing pain and leaving a person gasping for breath.
The syndrome is most commonly experienced by women — 90% of cases are in women — by people with a history of neurologic problems, such as seizures, and by people with a history of mental health problems.
Though a stress-based theory is probably correct, the precise cause of the syndrome remains unknown, according to Dr. Kevin R. Campbell, a cardiologist and assistant professor of medicine in the division of cardiology at University of North Carolina.
.

One form of the phenomenon is called Takotsubo syndrome, after the Japanese      term for “octopus trap,” because the heart looks as if it is caught from below, its upper chambers ballooning as if trying to escape.

The sudden loss of a child or spouse, perhaps foremost among life’s cruelties, sets off       “an overflow of stress hormones, and the heart can’t take it,” said Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum, director of women’s heart health at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York.
.
“It appears to be a massive heart attack,” but, she said, “the heart is literally stunned.”

The octopus trap can grab any heart, healthy or not, young or old, and most people survive, doctors say. The sudden flood of stress

“It’s really an interesting thing we don’t fully understand,” Campbell said, explaining        that the condition was first described and studied in 1990 by Japanese researchers, who referred to  Takotsubo syndrome.
.
“If you actually take a picture of the heart in the operating room, it looks dilated and balloon-like,” Campbell said, and that’s how the condition got its original name:
.
The heart is shaped like the Takotsubo pots used to catch octopus in Japan.
Despite a similar appearance to a heart attack, there’s a major difference in that patients with Takotsubo syndrome “don’t have any blockages in the heart,” he said. In fact, “the arteries look completely normal,” though the heart itself is dilated and ballooned and very weak.
Another important difference: Patients recover almost spontaneously over the course of days or weeks, Campbell said, adding that cardiologists commonly treat these patients with the same medicines used for heart attack.

Deadly cascade

Broken heart syndrome is often referred to as “stress-induced cardiomyopathy,”
where cardiomyopathy refers to a weakening of the heart muscle.
In rare cases of a weak heart unable to take the rapid changes induced by stress,          broken heart syndrome “can lead to fluid actually getting into the lungs. It could lead to dangerous changes in blood pressure. It can even lead to heart attack, which can lead to death,” Lorber said.
Extreme stress can also result in a cascade of other physiological events ending with stroke.
“We know that stress can induce cardiac arhythmias — irregular rhythms in the heart — that can cause clots to be formed and thus produce large strokes,” said Dr. Paul Wright, chairman of neurology at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, New York, and Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, New York.
.
Severe emotional shock “can cause constriction of the vessels of the heart, which can mimic a heart attack, which can cause cardiac rhythm abnormalities,” Wright said. A person could experience an ischemic stroke, in which a lack of blood flow deprives an       area of the brain of nutrition.
“Extreme emotional stress can also cause rises or changes in blood pressure, which can result in hemorrhagic strokes,” Wright said. That’s when a blood vessel ruptures and bleeds into the brain tissue.

Heart health linked to mental health

Though broken heart syndrome is not completely understood, the stress-induced theory has earned support from doctors focused on mental health.
“In general, we know that there’s a tie between cardiac health — heart health — and mental health,” Lorber said. He added that people who have untreated depression and those with untreated anxiety disorders are “at a higher risk for having heart disease and heart attacks.”
Join the conversation

“The most likely reason for this is, depression and anxiety cause a release of stress hormones that get into the bloodstream and impact the heart,” Lorber said. “The more your heart is exposed to this, the more likely you are to have a heart attack.”

 It’s more typical for broken heart syndrome to go away quickly, with no long-term consequences. Those who wander into an ER are treated symptomatically, their doctors simply verifying that they did not, indeed, have a heart attack.
With no lasting damage a month or two later, it’s simply a bad memory for most who suffer broken heart syndrome.
Still, a rare few do die of a broken heart. Though it’s not often, Lorber said, “you do hear about someone not wanting to live without their loved ones.”

HBO documentary moved up:  By coincidence also,  HBO had planned to air a new documentary,  Bright Lights:  Starring Carrie Fisher  and  Debbie Reynolds,  in March. Now, following their deaths, the film has been moved up to Jan. 7 (8 p.m. ET/PT), HBO announced Friday.

The film, which had been received warmly at Cannes Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival and the New York Film Festival, is described as a story of complicated family love and “an intimate portrait of Hollywood royalty in all its eccentricity,” featuring vintage family films from the Old Hollywood era.   The film was directed by Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens.

Meanwhile, another cable TV channel, Turner Classic Movies, announced Friday it will celebrate Reynolds with a 24-hour film tribute on Friday, Jan. 27, with a dozen films featuring Reynolds.

Also, fans can see her in her breakout role in Singin’ In The Rain on the big screen Jan. 15th and 18th as part of the TCM Big Screen Classics series in partnership with Fathom events.
