Observations, comments, perspectives - everything on this page is covered by me on the Reiki courses: all part of our humanness and our interaction, interface, with the vitalistic universal life force that is Reiki
The common idea that human beings are born to suffer is nonsense. It is possible to fully acknowledge your pain and suffering, and then get rid of it in moments. How?

Identify the meaning you are giving that is causing the pain and suffering, and then dissolve the meaning, thereby dissolving the pain and suffering



Dr Rupert Sheldrake:

The morphic fields of mental activity are not confined to the insides of our heads. They extend far beyond our brain though intention and attention.

We are already familiar with the idea of fields extending beyond the material objects in which they are rooted: for example magnetic fields extend beyond the surfaces of magnets; the earth's gravitational field extends far beyond the surface of the earth, keeping the moon in its orbit; and the fields of a cell phone stretch out far beyond the phone itself. Likewise the fields of our minds extend far beyond our brains.

Rupert Sheldrake, one of the world's most innovative biologists is best known for his theory of morphic fields and morphic resonance, which leads to a vision of a living, developing universe with its own inherent memory.He worked in developmental biology at Cambridge University.

Sheldrake's Morphic Resonance 
A Spiritual Paradigm Shift For Healing And Wholeness: Biology Revisited 
By Dr George N Malek - May 2006


Is our biological lay-out an imprint of the spirit, forms and shapes of human spirituality, made visible for the purpose of identifications and distinctions in the dimensions of the material realities of the universe?

It would seem so if Rupert Sheldrake, who erupted on the scientific world with a new "biology", is read with a theological eye. Or, is Sheldrake re-visiting orthodoxy anew through his study of biology? There is no doubt, whatever the case may be, that his attempts are endeavours to bridge between the two worlds - the spiritual and the material - to join them in one, whole system for the purpose of healing the "eternal division" between the divine (theology) and the human (the natural).

He also attempts to bridge the gap between the supernatural (quantumphysics), the creationist and the scientist (religion and science), and to inform us that the spiritual world is not only "real", and manifests itself in tangible patterns, but that its imprints are also achievable, possible and observable. He endeavours to do all that through scientific, observable, measurable and demonstrative approaches to the spiritual - by rethinking and restudying the behaviour of organisms as inherent, coded patterns in the world of our biology.

The spiritual person is a person whose spirit is informed by the reality of the nature of the house in which he resides, who at once knows that his residence is temporary, and that he abides in contingency.

The house is not of his own making, and though his years are numbered, he knows not the end from the beginning. He is a creature of/in time and nature, subject to his need for food and physical necessities, necessities for which the spirit anguishes in its attempt to co-exist in such subjugation.

Man is spiritual because he can transcend, yet at once, is dead in his living. Man is the only creature that knows he will die, but knows not his death.









Law of Attraction myths exposed:

The law is real but it's misunderstood. Most people have a superficial understanding of it. Most everyone thinks if they sit and visualize what they want, that it will just happen.

That's wrong. That's magical thinking. If you have any unconscious beliefs about what you want, those unconscious beliefs will cancel your conscious visualizing. You have to get clear of your mental interference before you can attract what you focus on.

In other words, you attract what you un-consciously believe, not what you consciously state. The Law of Attraction matches your inner expectations.

The key is Ecology balance of your mind, body and spirit.






Being Human

Maslow`s hierarchy of needs and how that relates to self-actualisation:

Nearly all psychological problems, he believed, stemmed from 'sicknesses of the soul' which involved lack of meaning or anxiety in these needs not being met. Most people cannot articulate that they even have these needs, yet their pursuit was vital to being fully human.

Mind Body Spirit interaction: Tap the Wisdom of Your Cells

Every cell in your body communicates in ways that can help alleviate pain and illness, enhance vitality, and achieve success in every area of your life. Best of all, you can facilitate this discussion yourself.

Through "molecules of emotion," our brain, glands, organs, and immune system are in constant communication, says Dr. Candace Pert in her book, Molecules of Emotion: The Science Behind Mind-Body Medicine.

These molecules are primarily neuropeptides and their receptors on the surface of cells. They consist of proteins and amino acids, Pert says, and they are waiting to pick up biochemical messages carried by other amino acids. This transfer of information occurs in a dynamic network linking all systems and organs of the body.








Mind Matter:

Repetitive thoughts can negate possibilities

You must remember you are not your body, thoughts, emotions, or your roles! If these are bringing you joy, that is great, but change is an integral part of life.

Letting repetitive or rigid thoughts, emotions, or roles define you negates other possibilities. Is anything keeping you from flowing with changes that are occurring in your life?Anxieties are always about future events or situations where your brain wants to avoid the physical or emotional discomfort of possible future negative consequences. Anxieties are generally not about danger in the present moment.

A certain level of anxiety can be useful, helping you take swift action when needed. It can be a great internal warning system. But, many people use their imagination to turn anxious energy into stifling, debilitating fear. Left unchecked, such fear can control you.



Striving for Happiness

People often search for happiness as if it were something to be found outside of themselves. They jump from job to job or from one relationship to the next, all in search of the happiness that seems to elude them.

Perhaps you already have every reason to be happy - a dream job, a passionate relationship, loving children, or a beautiful home, yet still you feel a sense of emptiness or unease within.

You're not alone. In fact, various levels of depression, and similar ailments, affects millions of people each year. And when everything is go, go, go...It is a problem that is getting worse.

For many, chronic feelings of worry, nervousness, and fear become all too "normal." Because everything is go, go , go...while making breakfast we are worrying about what we will wear to work, while driving to work we are worrying about what batch of emails awaits us, while making dinner we are worrying about what show to watch on TV, and we never take a moment to ourselves.

This problem can manifest itself beyond the day-to-day tasks like driving to work into bigger and more worrisome problems like driving one car while worrying about what the next car is going to be, buying one house while worrying about eventually purchasing an upgrade, and taking a vacation while worrying about going somewhere nicer the next time around.

Many of us have never been taught that happiness is not about buying a bigger house, faster car, or sculpting a "more perfect" body. Steps to becoming happy can be taken in little, magnificently simple ways.

You see, happiness, is a lasting state of inner peace and well-being independent of the conditions in our day-to-day lives. It is always there as a backdrop, ready for you to experience at any moment - even when you are having feelings of anger, sadness, shame, or fear. So why is achieving that deep sense of inner fulfillment so difficult?

Take a moment to consider these questions:

Do you suffer from the "I'll be happy when" syndrome? Like I'll be happy when I have more money...I'll be happy when I find the perfect mate...I'll be happy when I can retire...

Even when you do get what you want, do you still feel like something is missing from your life?

This is a trap we all fall into. It is because we centre ourselves by relating our experience to our past and future, instead, when we centre ourselves from our core essence, we are immediately Free and present.

You must be the change you wish to see in the world - Ghandi
