All is Well: Heal Your Body with Medicine, Affirmations, and IntuitionI can’t believe I debated whether or not I’d find value in this book, All is Well, by Louise Hay and Dr. Mona Lisa Schultz.

If you have any question at all, or are on the fence: Get it! It is fantastic!

Part of the book description states: “For the first time ever, they present scientific evidence showing the undeniable link between the mind and body that makes these healing methods work”.

I think I’ve had my fill of scientific evidence, so I thought most of the book would not be helpful to me. These methods work, let’s move on! I’ve been using these ideas successfully for decades and don’t care to spend a lot of time reading material written for people who still can’t embrace a holistic idea of our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual system.

But even though this book is very convincing, that’s not all this book is.

And in fact, the information that does show that “undeniable link” is fascinating; and more to the point, applicable.

Dr. Mona Lisa Schultz did an amazing job giving us exactly the kind of information that helps us connect the dots so that we can apply what she’s saying and easily expand upon it if need be.

It’s just the right amount of breadth and depth.

Because of that, I found a lot of insights as I read, even though I’m already familiar with the core ideas upon which this book is based.

Besides covering the interconnected nature of our amazing bodies and healing abilities (along with fascinating and useful biological/physiological details), it includes specific remedies such as herbs, supplements, pharmaceuticals, and supportive life style suggestions including various therapies and practices.

Along with that, it illustrates the value of heeding your own powerful intuition as you move through health challenges (and life in general, of course).

And last but not least is the abundance of affirmations that help whittle away at the stuck patterns near the root of it all. You know when you hit on the right one because you feel your energy shift immediately.

As always, I really wish it had an index (it doesn’t); I think it could double the usefulness of the book. There’s an affirmation table in the back organized alphabetically by “Problem” (similar to the tables in Louise Hay’s indispensable classic You Can Heal Your Life), but an index that includes some of the causes and remedies would be very helpful for cross reference.

But regardless, this is a great book, and I’m impressed.

Not only have I been able to apply some of the many helpful suggestions immediately, but I am grateful to have this book to refer to in the future.

I highly recommend this practical book to everyone!

Note: I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for review purposes and this review reflects my honest evaluation.

In health and wholeness,

Did you know that you — yes, YOU — can actually bring magic and miracles into your life?

You can.

And I’m here to show you how.

So let’s get going!

The Basic Principle

First, everything physical is consciousness manifest.

We can think of it as a continuum with the field of pure potential at one end, and the time/space of physical manifestation at the other.

You can work effectively using that continuum:

consciousness -> energy -> manifestation

A small change at the subtle levels of consciousness and/or energy can create profound shifts in our lives.

(If you’ve ever read my “About” page, you’ll recognize those statements.)

Consciousness Technologies

The most powerful way to make these changes deliberately is so new and cutting-edge that it doesn’t even have a well-known name yet, but it’s slowly becoming known as Consciousness Technology.

Consciousness Technologies are frameworks or concepts that give us the ability to deliberately work (or play) at the most subtle levels of consciousness to effect positive changes for ourselves or others.

Some include techniques that can be helpful, but keep in mind that techniques are not required.

The Field

The main element of a Consciousness Technology is — you guessed it — consciousness.

Of course, consciousness is everywhere all the time, but the aspect of it we are concerned with is being in a particular state of consciousness.

You can also think about this as accessing a field of consciousness, or what we’ll call “the field”.

Ultimately, Consciousness Technology is all about that field and your interacting with it. Engaging and even playing with it.

The biggest trick of it and the most critical element — maybe even the only element — is that you be in that state.

Because from there is where you facilitate change.

From Subtle to Solid

Now, that all sounds very ethereal but it’s amazingly practical.

I may be an intuitive but I’m an engineer at heart and wouldn’t even mess with it if I couldn’t apply it.

It can prompt changes at any level (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual); in your past, present, or future; in other peoples’ lives; or just about anything else you can think of. No kidding.

I’ve used it to find lost jewelry (my most amazing story of all — you’ll hear it some day), to fix a DVD player, to heal my shoulder, to get my dog(s) through physical challenges (one issue miraculously disappeared overnight), etc.

There’s really no end to it and I use it all the time.

Beneficial Side-Effects

I also find that because it’s so much about accessing certain states of consciousness, playing regularly with Consciousness Technology actually raises your consciousness as a side effect. Nice! And this can only help the world at large, as a side-effect of the side-effect. ;-)

It also prompts new and expansive views of what life and reality is all about. This aspect of it is pretty damn wonderful — and in way too many ways to go into right now. Let’s just say it’s invigorating and freeing and can rock your world from the inside out. :-D

Multiple Systems

There are a few different types of Consciousness Technologies out there.

Over time I’ll introduce you to all the various forms I’ve found and played with.

The ones I use the most are Matrix Energetics (which I trained extensively in) and Holographic Emergence™, which I’ve since developed (or which has been “emerging” through me).

Holographic Emergence™ incorporates ideas from several of the Consciousness Technologies and come to think of it, from everything I’ve learned and know about consciousness and all of life. As a result, it continues to evolve and improve, which is kind of exciting!

Coming Soon: How to Access The Field

In an upcoming post, you’ll learn the most essential skill you’ll need to begin to do a form of Consciousness Technology yourself almost immediately: accessing “the field”.
Update: Here it is! What “The Field” Is – and Why You Care

If you want to make sure not to miss upcoming posts, you can always subscribe to posts here. (It’s free and you can choose to get them via email or RSS feed).

So, did I give you a decent idea of what a Consciousness Technology is? Or do you have more questions now than you started with? I’d love to hear in the comments.

Thank you, and namasté.

Dr. Richard Bartlett tells in his seminars of people who’ve tried Matrix Energetics even without taking one of his seminars, and had immediate results. To their own surprise, they were soon facilitating remarkable transformations.

You can do this too, and it may take as little as 4 to 16 minutes.

How They Did It

In most of the cases, they were people who’d read Richard’s first book “Matrix Energetics”. It has a chapter teaching how to do a two-point, one of the basic techniques of opening to the field where magic and miracles can happen.

Or some had gone to the Matrix Energetics website, watched some of his videos, tried it, and succeeded.

The funny thing is that the more seminars I’ve taken and the more I’ve practiced Matrix Energetics, the more simple it’s gotten. I’m now to the point where I don’t even need to do a “technique” for things to happen.

Richard is right. It’s not about being a do-er, it’s about being a door.

So if you’d like to begin playing around with Matrix on your own, I highly recommend it and Richard encourages it too.

There’s a good chance you’ll get some happy surprises!

How You Can Do It

Here are a few simple ways you can begin:

• Listen to or download this audio snippet of Richard teaching the two-point technique.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

It’s from Music of Your Mind with Maureen Caudill. It’s a 16 min. segment of Richard teaching her do a two-point right on the spot. It’s excellent, and is all you need to begin practicing on your own. I recommend you listen frequently and allow your experience to be different each time.

(The interview took place on May 3, 2007, and I can’t find it on the original site anymore or I would link you directly to it. Here is a link to the interview in its entirety.)

• Watch the videos on the Matrix Energetics videos page.

In this first video you can see Richard explain and demonstrate a two-point. At only 4 min. long, it’s still long enough to give you an idea what a two-point is and begin playing with it.

It looks like he’s trying to change a physical feature, and he is … and he isn’t. He comments on this idea toward the end of this video.

At my first seminar I got up on stage with Richard while he did some work with my mild scoliosis. It was a trip. One of the results was that my scoliosis was noticeably improved, instantly! But besides that, I changed. I didn’t think about it much until a few weeks later when a friend of mine told me I’d changed since the seminar. That I was less rigid. I had to agree that was true, and isn’t it interesting that Richard had worked with my in/flexible skeletal system? I think it is!

The point is that things change at many levels.

• Read Matrix Energetics by Dr. Richard Bartlett.

Just reading it will put you into a magical space. But if you practice doing a two-point (chapter 6, complete with illustrations) you’re even more likely to notice results. If you’re like me (and a lot of people) you will make this more difficult than it needs to be. It’s sort of a paradox but you don’t even need to do it “right”. Allow it to be effortless if you can.

Please let me know in the comments if you tried any of these suggestions. What’s different?

Note: Matrix Energetics is a complete system of transformation. If you want more information, this page on the Matrix Energetics site is informative, or read about my Holographic Emergence™ services which are primarily based on my training in Matrix Energetics.

Don’t you just love it when a chronic physical issue just goes away?

Me too.

So today I want to share a little *magic* with you that can increase the chances of that happening in your life. Auto-magically.

I hurt my shoulder a few months ago. My chiropractor says it’s my rotator cuff, and that I need to baby it so it can heal. So I’ve been doing that … But I don’t see much improvement. If anything, I keep re-injuring it.

The other day, I decided it’s time I work a little magic with it. That can mean a lot of things to me (as you may know), but in this case I mean that I’m going to practice some Holographic Emergence with it. (And I just finished an astonishing session. Very fun.)

A Little Magic Does the Job

I have every confidence doing this will make a big difference.

Years back I developed bothersome TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint disorder; quite the mouthful). It was painful and had become chronic. After I’d had it for years it was recommended to me that I have surgery. Yikes. No way. I decided to get to work.

I used a combination of Matrix Energetics and Reiki on myself. Amazingly, I didn’t even have to do too many sessions (I did regular Reiki for awhile, maybe about 10 treatments, and about 3 or 4 Matrix sessions, all over about a 4 month period) before I simply forgot about it and later realized that the TMJ was gone. Completely gone! This was a few years ago and it’s never returned.

And so, it’s foolish of me not to do a similar thing with my shoulder.

Synchronicity as Confirmation

But here’s the cool thing. The morning I decided to do this–and to perhaps blog about the process–I was walking Ollie (our sweet old lab) and decided to listen to some Deepak Chopra on my MP3 player.

OMG! Talk about synchronicity! Everything he said was such an affirmation of what I’ve experienced ever since beginning my practice of Matrix Energetics. And to me it said “Do it!” It also said to share it.

It’s one thing to be familiar with the ideas, but when you live them, that’s when the real magic happens.

Some Magical Ideas from Deepak Chopra

So, without further ado, I want to share some of Deepak’s statements with you. They’re from his 5 CD audio set “Magical Mind, Magical Body“, and I’m only 1/2 hr. into it but I can already recommend it. (And I love that he sounds so excited as he talks about these things. It makes for an involved listening experience.)

• Health is not just the absence of a disease, it’s a joyfulness that should be inside us all the time. It’s a state of positive well-being, which is not only physical but emotional and ultimately even psychological and spiritual.

[Note: You can use that simple idea with great effect. Every time you feel frumpy, repeat the idea to yourself that you are well and express well-being and you'll feel an instant shift.]

The body is not a frozen sculpture, it’s a river of energy and information. … You can not step into the same flesh and bones twice.

• You replace 98% of all the items of your body in less than one year.

• There is a deeper reality to the body and that deeper reality is what we want to see because from that deeper reality comes both the mind and the body. Both come from that deeper level of existence.

• A physicist would say: “Our atoms are particles that are moving at lightening speeds around huge empty spaces, they emerge from something which is just a field of pure potentiality, just a field of pure energy, and from that field these particles emerge. They’re fluctuations of energy and information. They emerge from a void. They rebound, collide, and then disintegrate into the void.”

• We have a thinking body. And you can’t imprison the mind in the brain. That’s an old notion, that the mind is confined to the brain. The mind is in every cell of our body.

You can’t even confine the mind to your physical body because it extends beyond your physical body into the whole universe. We are part of a thinking conscious universe that is basically a non-local field of information. We can call the universe a non-local field of information and energy with which this local expression (which we call the physical body) is exchanging energy and information.

• It’s estimated that the average person thinks about 60,000 thoughts a day … and 95% of the thoughts you have today are the ones that you had yesterday. So you keep creating the same patterns that give rise to the same physical expression of the body. If you go to a deeper level, witness the whole process, become conscious of it, then you’d realize that in fact there are choices here.

What we do is we take that chaos of energy soup, we ingest it through our 5 senses, and then we convert that into a physical reality in our own awareness, in our own consciousness. And we do it unconsciously most of the time that results in certain interpretations that are part of a cultural indoctrination.

There’s one part of you that doesn’t change. If you find that part of you that doesn’t change then you’ll be able to cause transformations in that part of you that does change.

[Note: Deepak uses the word "you" but then goes on to complicate it. You can discover that part of you that doesn't change easily and simply. Just visit  John Sherman's website and take advantage of what he so generously offers.]

• Now if I said the mind is omniscient it would sound sort of mystical. That it knows everything, it’s omnipotent, it’s omnipresent, it would sound almost like I’m talking in mystical terms. But in fact, in scientific terms, that’s an accurate statement.

Now once we recognize that — even to have the insight — is to begin to cause transformations in your body. A person’s body is nothing but an expression of all the ideas they have about it.

• If there’s a fluctuation that changes at deeper levels of energy and information then it causes, spontaneously without having to do anything, you don’t have to brainwash yourself about this. You just have to have the insight. And the insight itself causes the changes.

Patterns of Light and Information

So, these are some of the ideas I use — that have become a part of me — as I work with my shoulder. Or more accurately, this pattern of light and information that I perceive as a shoulder. ;-)

Like Deepak says, recognizing this reality helps create a transformation all by itself. It’s what gives us a lot more power than we think we have otherwise.

And therein lies your magic.

So this is the world I get to play in every day.

Want to join me? Or have you already?

Do you have trouble finishing things? Or maybe that trips you up and you don’t even know it.

For awhile now I’ve struggled with how to be more productive.

I’m “very busy all the time” (inside joke with you-know-who-you-are) but I don’t seem to get much done.

Well, I’ve realized that’s exactly the key idea: Get things done.

I get lots of projects to about 80% and then they languish as I jump to something else.

It’s a real problem!

But I’m onto something. I just know I’m on my way, I can feel it in my bones.

Here are a few things that helped me get my head around it. And if you’re reading this, you’ll know it works, because it means I finished this post. Hooray!

Not Finishing Sucks

When you don’t finish things, you’re not nearly as productive as you deserve to be considering how hard you work. All your efforts go to waste.

Not finishing things is a total time and energy suck, and in other ways too.

Things lay around and languish. They wither. They die. Pretty soon they become downright toxic. This not only sucks, it stinks.

Also, being in the middle of a lot of unfinished things weighs you down. It takes effort to carry them around with you. They’re in your energy field, whether you’re aware of them or not.

Lots of you are intuitives or are interested in improving your abilities. As an intuitive you really want to keep things alive and moving. Clean. Fresh. Clear. Sattwic. This is true internally and externally. Being in the middle of a lot of unfinished things is the opposite of that. It’s heavy and oppressive. Tamasic.

And not ever getting any payoff for your efforts is just downright depressing. Yes, even if you love the process. If you never get that extra little satisfaction of a job well done, you’ll be dragged down and probably discouraged sooner or later. It’s like running and running without ever getting to stop.

Finishing Provides a Wonderful Buzz

Literally, when you finish something, you can feel the freed-up energy buzzing around wondering what to do with itself.

It’s kind of like after a good run. If you just *stop*, you feel the blood gather in your legs because it’s still raring to go. It’s on a roll. It’s got momentum. It’s ready! Available for some more action. And let’s not forget the euphoria of a runner’s high.

Accomplishing something just feels really good in and of itself.

And if what you’ve just finished serves a purpose (which probably it does), you and possibly others get the benefit of whatever that project was intended for besides.

Big wins all around.

Now’s a Good Time to Finish

Today is the Summer Solstice where I live, and that’s what prompted this post.

In my last newsletter I mentioned briefly that today begins what’s known in jyotish as Dakshinayana, where darkness increases as the days begin to shorten, and it’s time to finish what was begun in the brightening part of the year.

It’s the Solar version of the waning part of a monthly Lunar cycle, and it lasts half a year.

Just like a gardener worth their salt wouldn’t plant seeds while the moon is waning, this isn’t the best half of the year to be starting new projects.

(Of course this is only true in the Northern hemisphere. You guys in the south, go get crackin’ on some new stuff and don’t waste your time reading this post… for 6 more months, anyway. ;-) )

If you pay attention you’ll notice that this feels natural. Right around New Year’s it’s easy to be enthused about starting new habits, new projects… same with spring. There’s a sense of newness in the air.

But now that summer is here, things are just kind of perking along. It’s not only a good time to be in maintenance mode but even better to work toward completion. Wrap it up.

And especially as we move toward fall, we will see things fall away, die off, get moved to the compost pile for new growth in the spring again.

6 months! This is a good chunk of time. You can finish up something substantial. Several things. Lots of things. Make a big difference. Free up lots of energy.

It’s kind of exciting!

Don’t Forget the Joy

Of course, finishing in and of itself isn’t the whole equation. Sometimes finishing things leaves you exhausted and depleted.

It’s important to notice that the things worth finishing (or maintaining/improving) are those things that bring joy to your heart.

That’s the sign you’re looking for. Those things will typically leave you feeling uplifted and sometimes even energized afterward. Needing some down-time is normal but it will feel healthy and balanced. You’ll feel satisfied and content.

If it doesn’t bring joy but it “needs” to be done, see if you can bring joy to the activity.

If you’ve made a commitment but don’t enjoy the activity, maybe you can find an aspect of it to enjoy, even if it’s the aspect of being honorable about it.

And if you can’t, maybe the way to finish it is to let it go. Redefine finished. Quit. Yes, quit it!

Only do it if it’s fun. If it’s not fun, make it fun. If you can’t make it fun, then don’t do it.
Peter Russell, physicist/philosopher as quoted in Danielle LaPorte’s Spark KIT

So do allow yourself to “finish up” or let go of whatever doesn’t serve your spirit. That alone will be a big weight off and free your energy for where it can be put to its best use.

What to Finish?

(I know, right about now you just want to finish this damn post, already. I hear ya. Me too. But I decided to enjoy slogging on. Really! Are we having fun yet?)

We’ve been talking about projects so far, but this idea goes for all kinds of things.

Start by doing a physical (you and your environment), mental, and emotional inventory. For the sake of brevity (catch the levity?), here are just a few things to look for:

Any kind of unfinished business. This could be relationships that are just kind of hanging in your life and not serving anyone, intentions you have but haven’t acted on, lists you’ve had going for years with a little bit done on each item, etc.

Anything on a list even if you haven’t started it; you’ve still got a piece of yourself invested in it.

Decisions that you need to make but haven’t, maybe because you’re afraid to lose some potential. Just do it. Make a choice. Decide.

The word “decide” comes from the Latin decidere, to cut off. This is what you are doing when you decide, cutting away an option. So it’s true that energetically (and in other ways), you are closing a door. But that’s good. It often takes closing the old one for a new one to open.

Things around the house that you’ve started with the intention of doing some day — but haven’t.

Old stories that you can benefit from letting go of.

Old belief patterns, especially negative and limiting thoughts.

Too many commitments.

Judgements about situations, others and ourselves. Often based on old stuff. Often sub-conscious.

Projections, especially paranoid ones that you let limit you. Often just under the surface.

Resentments. This can be quite the project, but well worth it. Often we’re very aware of these but don’t want to take the time to clean them up.

Negative associations (e.g. friendships or group activities that you down or just don’t work anymore.)

There are some patterns to watch for that one post just can’t do justice. There are books written on each of these. But just for the record, a few other things that are huge time and energy drains are:

Clutter. Any kind of clutter qualifies (I love the book Clear Your Clutter With Feng Shui by Karen Kingston. So practically helpful and inspiring. Gets you excited and off your butt.)

But especially clear out anything that feels bad. So, anything that brings up bad memories, even subtly, when you notice it. Or things that make you feel guilty because you’re neglecting them, things you don’t like, etc.

And don’t just put it away in a closet or garage. Get rid of it. Pass it on if you can to someone who will cherish or use it. Energetically, this creates space. The space itself feels great.

But watch out, the space may fill up fast. But please, not with new clutter! Let it be with something that supports your new interests in a positive way.

Being and staying stuck.

Bad habits.

Disorganization.

Allowing and even encouraging distractions.

Plus: Little Changes with Big Payoffs

Expunge the habit of not finishing. Yes, this can be a habit.

Even with little things, like opening the mail and setting it down, setting dirty dishes in the sink, tossing your clothes on the bed, etc. I heard once that it’s good to handle everything only once. This doesn’t always make sense but in this case it’s a helpful thought to keep in mind and practice often.

It’s a little along the lines of finishing one thing before beginning another, but not exactly.

Let go of perfectionism. This can be a biggie.

Haven’t we all been in that exhausting place where things have to be so perfect they’re never good enough to be done?

I know that for me, I have to let go of the idea that my posts have to be thorough and painfully organized. Writing a post often becomes a huge, sprawling, monster of a project (like this one) that I never finish (but will this time). And then I wonder why I have dozens of almost-finished posts laying around.

It’s time to learn to do a decently good job and call it done. It’s either that or nothing. Really!

Something’s got to change.

Slowly but surely, we can let go of some old rules.

So Now What?

I read an excellent post last week on write to done by Ali Luke of Aliventures. It’s called How to Finish What You Start: A Five-Step Plan for Writers and is about writing but could actually be applied to anything.

Her 5 steps are:

  1. Stop starting new projects
  2. Assess your current projects
  3. Choose one project to focus on
  4. Decide what “finished” will look like
  5. Set some milestones (and start hitting them)

There are a lot of helpful ideas in it, and you really should check it out.

Here are a few things I would add or emphasize, and where I would fit them in:

Before #1) Be motivated to finish.

Do this by knowing and acknowledging that finishing makes all the difference. Doing that last little bit gives you a lot of bang for your buck. It’s a “duh”, I know, but being conscious of this as something to make sure I do with every activity is critical in making this change.

Between #3 & #4) Consider why you avoid finishing each thing.

Sometimes we kid ourselves. We don’t realize we’re quitting; we think we’re setting something aside for now but then we never get back to it.

But why do you resist finishing it?

Acknowledge there may be (and probably is) some block you have about it, or that it is making you face. Looking at it will help you move through it to a new freedom on the other side.

See if you can NOT ignore, avoid, or try to get rid of your blocks. Instead, greet them, acknowledge them, embrace them, and most importantly: see or listen to what they have to say to you.

Whenever you do this, they’ll lose their substance as they transform into a gift that you then carry forward, walking right through where they used to be with your eyes wide open, and all the better for it.

For example, with my posts, I realize that every time I get a good way through I let my inner critic sabotage me. I can always find something wrong with what I’ve written. If I look at this consciously, I stand to gain much more than if I repeatedly bulldoze my way through them.

This way you grow instead of struggle.

Between #4 & #5) Dangle a carrot.

Keep in front of yourself not only the finished product and the benefits of it to you and others, but also how you’re going to feel when you’re finished.

Of course you’ll get/feel the benefit from whatever you finish, but you’ll also feel great just knowing you completed it. If you’re like me, that’s a big deal too!

And don’t forget, even if you’ve just launched something and you’ve yet to see how well it will do (this babe out in the world), it’s a milestone. Let yourself celebrate your milestones.

Are You With Me?

Just like how –  at the beginning of this year — I jumped on the “one word” bandwagon (and I even still know what my word is, do you know yours?), I am committing right now that for the next 6 months I will keep this word in front of me:

Finish

Do you want to do this with me? We all know that support can help a lot, right?

If you want to join me, say so in the comments.

And if we get a decent number of us, we’ll come up with a Twitter hashtag and keep in touch there. Sound good?

[Thank you for sticking with me through this ridiculously long post. My longest yet, but there was no way I could NOT finish it, you know that, right? ;-) (But just think how good I must feel!)]

chrysalisToday, I’m thrilled to finally announce a new service I’m offering.

It’s called a Holographic Emergence Session, where I act as a catalyst to facilitate a shift in whatever area of your life you’re wanting to focus on.

It could be an area where you’re feeling stuck, or where you want improvement, or where you want any kind of change.

Any kind of change you want, we can activate it and sometimes make the complete shift right then and there.

When I do these sessions I access a special state (for lack of a better term) and then I open to whatever’s called for in that moment. Almost always my intuitive abilities will come into play too, and we work together (although you don’t have to “do” anything) while

I facilitate the emergence of the whole you into this world,
unencumbered and magnificently expressed.

Thus the name Holographic “Emergence” Sessions. :-)

And the changes I facilitate in your life are directly related to your emergence. Intimately. As you truly emerge into the world, you affect everything. For you don’t stop at your skin. It’s all you.

There is no “out there” out there!

Kinds of Changes

We can shift things in any area of your life. Yes, any area.

It can be related to:

emergence

  • your job
  • your interests and/or vocations
  • money
  • relationships
  • emotions
  • health
  • spirituality
  • your traits or abilities
  • your habits
  • your environment (home, family, co-workers, pets, property, spaces, etc.)
  • issues from the past
  • concerns about the future
  • specific upcoming events
  • spaces you’ll be using/inhabiting

you name it.

Nothing is off-limits.*

I inevitably find during a session that whatever’s being worked on runs like a thread though several areas of life anyway. It’s kind of amazing, actually. Connections might be brought to light that you weren’t even aware of but that suddenly seem obvious.

The Results

Now, what’s interesting about this is it doesn’t guarantee that things will change how you (as a personality) want them to.

But things will change, and for the better — often, even better than you imagined.

It also doesn’t necessarily work on your timetable.

Sometimes things will happen immediately, really obvious things. Sometimes they unfold over time and you may not even recognize that they’re the solution to your problem or issue but in retrospect you see that they were.

So Holographic Emergence Sessions set things in motion. They shift a pattern in consciousness and depending what it is, the change may or may not manifest quickly or in the way you might expect.

How Holographic Emergence Sessions Work

Holographic Emergence Sessions are based on my training in Matrix Energetics, but I’ve adapted Matrix Enegetics to what I do best. And this is as it should be, because Matrix Energetics is adaptable by nature.

It’s not really a technique.

We’re actually using something that’s available to everyone all the time, which is the zero-point-field and consciousness.

It’s just that we’ve learned how to access it to make shifts in our everyday reality. (If you want to get mind-boggled and amazed at the same time, go see what Matrix Energetics is all about.)

I’ve been doing this since 2007, and have done hundreds if not thousands of sessions.

in flight

Most recently, some volunteers from my monthly newsletter list received complementary sessions in exchange for their feedback, to help me hone how to package these.

“I want to update you on what’s been happening. Things are going very well! My energy has definitely shifted, and lots of good stuff is popping up. [Here she talks about 4 new job prospects.] I think your session definitely helped this energy shift happen and so I want to thank you again for your good work.Keep doing what you’re doing, because the world needs more insightful, helpful people like you!”

Since then, a few clients have already had sessions too, and one had several since she noticed such positive changes.

“I had the most incredible healing, Patti, I can’t wait to tell you about it. You’re incredible, I really appreciate what you’ve done for me, I never have been through anything like this.”

Without exception, they had noticeable, positive results.

So I decided it’s time to hang out my shingle.

Because I’m so excited about this, I’m starting with a very affordable fee. I’ll probably raise my rates fairly soon, so if you’re eager to make some positive shifts, now’s the time! Just contact me to schedule your session.

More About Holographic Emergence Sessions

Over time I’ll fill in the blanks, and write more about what you can expect, i.e.

  • How to prepare for a session
  • What happens during a session
  • What you can expect after a session
  • Is there any followup, and why
  • Examples of sessions and/or results

In the meantime, if you have questions or comments about this new service, you’re welcome to put them in the comment section, or contact me directly.

* I get such wonderful clients and I’m sure it’s not even necessary to say this but I’m going to anyway: I don’t work in areas that feel unethical to me. At the same time, I’m not judgemental about how you choose to live your life. That’s probably enough said, and we can discuss specifics if we need to (but I don’t expect it will come up).

If you think your friends might benefit from this service, I’d appreciate it if you’d spread the word. (That’s exactly how it is that I get such wonderful clients!) Thank you!

“I just have not been in a writing “space” but I better get my ass there pretty damn quick. I was all inspired about a post to write tonight or tomorrow but [...] threw me off.

Can I get back on track? Yes. I can. I know how to do that.”

That is taken straight out of my journal/diary from a few days ago.

Have you ever been in a space like that? Where there’s something you want to do, but you’re having a hard time getting into the right frame of mind to do it well?

Okay, so maybe you can push through and get it done, but who wants to operate like that?

Much better to get in harmony with what it is you want to accomplish. It’s more enjoyable that way, and it turns out better besides.

There are quite a lot of tools that can help with that, actually, and I want to tell you about one of them that’s very effective and fun to experiment with.

Brain Entrainment Using Binaural Beats

I wrote about one such tool awhile back, in my binaural beats post. They’re kind of mindless to apply (a very nice feature sometimes) yet are very effective. I like them a lot, and that post links to some sites where you can try them out (for free).

Well, one of my readers/clients read that post and emailed to tell me he uses and likes the binaural beats, but also uses another similar technology too. He’s a lawyer who travels some for his job, is an actor in his spare time, and in his words: “I’ve used this different technology to reduce jet lag, enhance sleep, enhance concentration and memory, etc.”

He’s a very conscientious person so I thought I’d check them out.

Brain Entrainment Using Isochronic Beats

This other technology is isochronic beats, and they’re said to be the most powerful means of brain entrainment available to the general public.

Isochronic Tones

Unlike the binaurals, they don’t require that you listen in stereo. Instead of your brain perceiving the difference in frequency between your left and right ears (as in binaural beats), you’ll hear the pulsing itself — fast or slow depending on which frequency you are entraining your brain to.

For more about brain entrainment in general and the effects of different frequencies, please see my post about binaural beats.

Try Them For Free

I don’t know about you but I love to try things out and sample them before buying.

Here’s a site I found that has a whole lot of different isochronic beats for you to try for free.

They’re all “feature-length”, i.e. not just little snippets but long enough to do whatever it is you want done.

So far, I’ve used these mainly to help me sleep, and for me they work very well and very consistently.

Some of the files you can download are:

  • Nirvana/Sleep – This is the one I use a lot. It’s soothing and it works. 45 min.
  • Sleep – 20 min.
  • Mental Performance 1, 2, and 3.
  • Refresh – 1 hr.
  • Void – Still experimenting with this one… 20 min.
  • I.Q. Increase
  • Creativity – 15 min.
  • Headache relief – one for awake and one for relaxed
  • ESP – 20 min.
  • Anti jet-lag
  • Awake and Alert

He also has whole categories for:

  • Lucid Dreaming
  • Spiritual Tones (e.g. astral projection, chakra balancing, meditation)
  • Recreational (Are you a child of the 60′s too? Check it out in any case!)

The site itself has much more description and lots more audios to try than I’ve given here.

The only drawback to the way the files are listed there is that most don’t indicate which frequency is used. Maybe that’s not important to you, but in case you care, the site author does link to a very detailed frequency list he used when he mapped each frequency to its effects.

So… enjoy! If you try any of these out, I’d love to hear your experience of them. Or any other comments/questions? Please pipe in!

Just because color has no weight doesn’t mean we should underestimate its power to help us balance our lives — or to knock us off balance, for that matter!

Let’s see what kind of energy is connected with each color and which colors you can increase or minimize to influence yourself positively.

Note: This post shows you which colors to use in your environment and when. Lots more ideas about how to use them are offered in last month’s companion post.

The 7 Main Colors and Their Influence

Each of these main colors could easily be a post on its own, but this is intended as an overview. I will describe each one in the simplest of terms and you will see that even the most fundamental understanding can be immediately useful.

Red

Red is about energy: physical & sexual energy. It is very life-promoting. It’s hot. It’s related to primal energy, survival, our tribe, security, survival instincts, and the stage of kundalini that represents potential. It rules the sex glands or gonads.

Red is connected to our first center (or root chakra) near our coccyx at the base of the spine.

Use or increase this color if you want to have a lot of energy for something physical. It’s a great color for sports & exercise.

Too much may make you feel overstimulated, aggressive, and impulsive. Avoid or minimize this color if there is inflammation, fever, or a lot of heat/energy already, or for doing activities that are not physical or require calm. It is not a good color to use prominently in a bedroom, at least not for sleeping ;-) .

Orange

Like red, orange is about physical & sexual energy, but with an emotional element added. Whereas red is primal and more about the individual, this is dual. It’s about partnership, relationship, procreation, making choices, and our ethics. It is related to intuition, especially where others are involved. Orange is warm and provides a grounded creative energy, sociability, courage, and joy.

It rules our hormones plus ovaries in women and our resonance with this can be easily affected by birth control pills and menstrual cycles.

Orange is connected to our 2nd chakra in the abdominal area.

Use or increase this color if you want to socialize, do a combined physical/social activity (e.g. taking a walk with a friend), or do physical creative activities, including those related to earning or using money. This color can help you perceive others’ emotions and gives or receive sexual feelings.

Yellow

Yellow is the color of  sunshine; it’s bright and cheerful and can help us be optimistic. This color activates your personal power center where personality,  ego, and self-esteem reside.

This center is located at your solar plexus (3rd chakra) in your stomach area, which also happens to be your psychic radio.  It increases or activates your ability to be intuitive and as you might guess from the location of its center, to get “gut feelings”. This area receives energy or information that is relevant in the moment.

Yellow can be a powerful color for increasing our intuition, but it can easily increase that ability to where we are bombarded by too much information. More accurately I should say that intuitive information is always available, but we typically filter most of it out. When we wear or are around yellow, we are much more sensitive to it.

Use this color if you want to increase your ability to access information intuitively. Avoid or minimize its use if you are already highly sensitive since it can be very uncomfortable and make you too vulnerable to others’ energy as well. Yellow kitchens can be difficult first thing in the morning for sensitive people.

Green

Green is an interesting color in that it is good for balancing in general. Think how good it feels to be outdoors in a lush green landscape. It relates to fertility, growth, and abundance. It is grounded and reliable, and reflects a calm strength.

Green is connected with our heart center and our heart, lungs, and thymus gland. It can be very healing (or “whole-ing”) as it helps tone down our upper centers (thinking) and our lower centers (physical) and bring them together and into balance.

It relates to love and compassion and thus empathy, as well as a simple friendliness. It is from here that we perceive and project most emotion.

Use this color if you are feeling either overly physical or overly mental; you’ll find it very comforting. Likewise, if you are feeling spacey or ungrounded it helps bring you back to earth.

Because this is such a balancing color on its own, it’s difficult to get too much of it, but do watch it if you find you are over-giving to your own detriment.

Blue

Blue is a cool color that relates to practical mental functions (analytical and logical) and rational choice. It is calming, quiet, serious, and soothing. It cools the physical and can counteract too much red. I recently saw a program about using blue visually to help reduce pain (which is related to heat and the color red) even more effectively than pain medications.

Use this color if you need to focus your attention or to help stay on track with your intentions. Blue is good for mental focus and also for resting. It will help you be alert but not in a physically activated way. It is a natural tranquilizer and actually slows down the heart rate. It can be a good color for a bedroom or study.

Blue is connected with the 5th chakra located near the throat which it rules along with the thyroid gland. This area is the will center as it relates to personal will (vs. higher will).

Indigo

Indigo is related to creative thinking, open mindedness, imagination, and symbolic sight.

It is connected with the 6th center or chakra located near the 3rd eye area (between and slightly above the eyebrows), and also rules the pineal gland.

The frequency of indigo is quite high and subtle. Use this color to help increase your connection with the higher or subtle realms. Whereas yellow is good for intuitive perceptions related to the moment, indigo can be helpful for gaining foresight, or when you are wanting to access your natural clairvoyance.

This color can also help with creative thinking so can be put to good use when you are working on the inspirational stage of creative projects of any kind. (Orange, as mentioned, will help you at the more physical stage of creative projects.)

Too much of this color can cause you to be unrealistic, ungrounded, or simply spaced out. Much emphasis is put on these higher centers these days, but it’s important to remember to keep a balance: head in the skies, but feet on the gound!

Purple

Purple is related to inspiration, spirituality, universal consciousness, and transcendence. It is connected with the 7th center or chakra which is located near the crown of our heads and rules the pituitary or master gland.

Use this color when you are involved in activities where these elements are important such as when you pray or meditate, or when you want to connect or harmonize with your guidance systems.

Just like with indigo, too much of this color can easily cause an imbalance making it difficult to stay grounded and operate in the 3-D physical world. As suggested, keeping a balance between the subtle and the solid is recommended.

A Dose of Black & White

The color white is a combination of all colors, so it can be used whenever you want to help bring yourself back into overall balance. The mantra OM has a similar effect and can be chanted at any time with wonderful balancing results.

On the other hand, black is the absence of all color. It can be used for protection in the sense that it absorbs color/vibrations. So, for example, if you are quite sensitive and will be around a lot of people who have all their various “vibes” going, wearing black can help you not take on their miscellaneous moods and projections.

Colors’ Interplay With You – A Balancing Act

The descriptions I’ve given are guidelines and there will be variation for each individual. Red, for example, will affect you slightly differently than it affects me. Also, different cultures may respond differently to colors than others due to the cultural conditioning of certain colors having special meaning.

Besides the variance each individual color has, there is also variance in the amount of each color which is optimal for each individual. With any/all of us, a few colors will be more prominent than others. This is natural. But there always needs to be a balanced (not necessarily equal) combination of all of them in order for us to function at our best. Athletes, for example, may function optimally with a 30% red balance, but that would be way too much red for someone who has a sedentary desk job requiring calm focus. And note that that athlete still needs some amount of all the other colors as well to function in an effective way.

And I’m sure you can also see why you may operate best with one combination at one time, and need a different balance at another.

So as you apply these ideas, keep in mind that I have provided general  descriptions, and you will want to pay attention to the nuances of how these colors interact with you and what your own, unique balance might be at any given time.

Tips and Ideas for Using This List

If you are feeling uneasy or out of balance in any way, take a look around and see if the corresponding color — the color that causes that dis-ease or imbalance — is playing a dominant role in your environment (including your clothing). Or see if the color that would aid in the way you want to feel is missing altogether. Then either add or subtract the affecting color as appropriate.

When you use these colors, it’s best to use a nice clear color like I’ve shown in the column on the left. That way, the colors can vibrate at their purest resonance.

If it’s difficult to place that color in your environment, you can simply visualize the color clearly for a similar effect. If you do this, it can be healing to see how its corresponding center feels in your body. Can you envision or feel the clear version of the color there? If so, good! That indicates a good amount and quality of that energy in your field.  If not, you can work with that color for awhile, either by placing it in your environment or visualizing it like I just described until it’s easy to get a clear, clean feel of it.

And as already mentioned, I’ve given a few more ideas for how to use these colors here.

Off to the Balance Beam

Okay! Well, this is just the tip of the iceberg but I’m sure is enough for you to play with and see how helpful applying these ideas can be in your life. Here’s to your balance and mine!

I’d love to hear what you think and your experience with this, so please do share with us! Or if you have anything to add to my list of how colors can affect us, let us know that too.

Here is a simple practice that is really powerful and motivating. You are doing something you would be doing anyway, but you’re doing it with an expanded vision that gives far-reaching results. And a surprising bonus is: it actually makes cleaning house fun!

We can all probably agree that our environment feels better when it is decluttered, clean, and organized. Let’s start with the given that this makes sense physically and psychologically, and then take it a step further.

If we approach these clearing activities metaphorically or symbolically, we can benefit even more.

The idea here is that as we declutter, clean, and organize any area of our home (or property, vehicle, office, etc.) we are improving an area of our lives on an even bigger scale than just that physical area of our environment.

What’s in a Dust Bunny?

Everything we are around on a regular basis has energy ties and some type of connection to us, whether we are conscious of it or not. We can envision this as thin threads going from us to everything we own (and some things have big fat ropes!)

As we clean, clear, move, or give any attention at all to these things, the changes reverberate into the larger pattern of our lives that these things are tied to. We can see a correspondence between our life and the location, the article, and/or the activity. In other words, as we clear things, we not only clear that area of our home directly but ALSO an area of our life that’s represented symbolically by that physical area, its contents, or the action we are taking. I would say that this is always true, but especially so if we do it with conscious intent.

Can you see the ramifications of this? How powerful and far reaching this can be in helping us make improvements in all areas of our lives?

And even when things are simply neglected or left to gather dust, never being used or appreciated, those areas of our lives that they relate to are often deteriorating as well. The dust itself is like old, leftover consciousness that begins to smother their vitality. (I am reminded of Dr. Masaru Emoto’s brilliant work with the water crystals, where he showed that plants receiving negative energy fared even better than those that were totally ignored–except for being kept alive, that is. Amazing!)

Next time you clean or declutter, pay attention for the next hours, days, or week and see if you can notice any side-effects in the area of your life that that area might represent.

You Can Decide What You Want to Change

Conversely, if you want to make some changes in a particular area of your life, consider what area of your home or what type of belongings can or do represent that, and then go about cleaning up that physical area. You can consider it intellectually and see if you can get a felt-sense of it too.

Besides resulting in significant and sometimes surprising improvements in that life area, a great side effect of this way of going about clutter-clearing is that it can be a great motivation to clear/clean and even make it more interesting and enjoyable.

You can use your own ideas about how a physical area of your home or a certain activity might tie to an area of your life (get creative, it’s all valid; get intuitive, even better) and/or you can use established systems such as Feng Shui, Vastu, etc. to establish the correlations.

Charge It With Intention

It can be even more powerful to think or even say out loud as you are clearing what it is that you are intending, e.g.

As I mop these dust-bunnies out from under my bed, I am gently removing:
a) the unnoticed debris left from past relationships, or
b) my random worries that have been keeping me awake at night, or
c) the “dust” that indicates my lack of action in reaching out to my husband/wife, or
d) the scary monsters that I now have the courage to see in the light of day

You get the idea. This sounds like a silly example (and maybe it is) but declaring your intentions really does add oompf. Try it out!

Better yet, play with it! Go ahead – let those dust bunnies fly! Turn your feather-duster into a magic wand!

Just be warned: you can’t always predict what new adventure may open up to you as a result! My best personal story is of cleaning out the stuffed full closet in my office and coming away with tons of released energy, a newly redecorated room, and a revived career.

Some Ways You Can Start Today

The connections are endless, and many (or even most) are specific to us as individuals. But here are a few that most of us have in common where you can make a start right away.

  • General decluttering, cleaning, and organizing seems to remove the cobwebs from your energy systems in general, making you much more clear and decisive. It also has the added benefit of making you more alert and intuitive.
  • Do you have lots of old financial files that will never again be of any use? Papers or statements you’re afraid to look at? Give them a spring cleaning and notice how your finances are revived and positively activated.
  • Book shelves are like magic. No sooner do I give away books that I have outgrown, then I am introduced to new areas of fascination and some of the empty spaces begin to come alive with new materials.
  • Sorting through old photos is a powerful way to revive or let go of relationships, including relationships with a “you” of the past. This is often quite therapeutic and can be very healing, even when you didn’t know healing was called for. (And be prepared to possibly hear from some of these people out of the blue.)
  • Thinning out or organizing things that represent mental activities (reading, tracking, planning, figuring) can go a long way to actually help clear your mental clutter such as worrying, judging, criticizing, and over-thinking.
  • Clearing communications areas (such as email or that little address book with phone numbers from two decades ago) can help free up your energy for those relationships that do matter.  Organizing the new or decluttered space can help you be more clear when listening and speaking.
  • Clean and decorate the “helpful people” area of your Feng Shui bagua (a complex topic but the  short form is the south-east direction of a space) to keep that energy moving.
  • Attend to areas that hold vitamins, herbs, medicines, health and personal products and watch your physical health improve.
  • “Thinning out” in general can help you let go of a craving for excess food and you will likewise thin down.
  • Cleaning basements can go to the foundations of who we are and what we stand for, including our subconscious patterns. It can take a brave soul to dive into the “dungeons” but the results can be amazing.
  • Cleaning up that pet cupboard, tossing or giving away those things they’ve outgrown or that are old and worn will revive your relationship with them and improve your pets’ well-being as well.
  • Spiff up the outside of your home or your outdoors areas (or even your car) as representative of how you show yourself to and connect with the world at large. You just may find yourself wanting to have a party!

I first heard of this idea many years ago through Denise Linn on one of her podcasts from her weekly show on Hay House Radio. Since then I have proven it to myself time and again, with positive and enduring results.
