Change Your Life – Change Our World

changeworldChange is a powerful and mysterious thing.  The world around us responds in surprising ways to even the slightest adjustment–and it all starts with YOU.  Back when I had my psychology practice, I would sometimes hear clients say:  “I can’t change the world, so why even try?”  The multitude of  problems inherent in our world right now do seem pretty daunting. The temptation to hide your head in the sand and pretend it does not affect you is certainly understandable.  Yet, looking at the bigger picture can provide some insight into navigating the change to create true magic.  You just have to be ready for it.

“Everything in the universe is subject to change and everything is right on schedule.”

Watch for the signs.  Perhaps you avoid change and/or find it uncomfortable. A clear example of resistance to change is feeling anxiety, even depression, due to lack of taking corrective action.  But have you ever noticed that once you take corrective action, the fear and anxiety oftentimes drops by the wayside?  You suddenly feel like a burden has been lifted from your shoulders and you may even wonder why putting it off was such a big deal in the first place.  Now stop and consider what your putting off could have positively changed and/or affected those around you, maybe even hundreds or thousands of others as well.

In the movie Dead Poet’s Society, the character of John Keating, memorably played by the late Robin Williams, tries to inspire his young students to seize the day and make a difference in their life, likening it to a Shakesperean play:  “…the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse.  What will your verse be?”

Will your “verse” be as a volunteer helping others in need, or as an activist for environmental change–or perhaps signing that petition to have your signature also count?  Ultimately, every word and action DOES count.  What you do for someone else on our planet, you do for yourself as well, because we are all connected in this global sea of humanity.   So, be an ambassador for change.  One voice can change a room, then change a city, then change a state, then a country, then even change the world.

If wolves can change rivers, think of what your positive words and actions could accomplish.  This short video below is both awesome and inspiring.  It demonstrates the true power of  what happens in nature with even the smallest change…

Stargate Journeys

If you saw the original Stargate movie with Kurt Russell, or even the Stargate TV series, you’ve certainly heard the term.   Stargates, or portals into other dimensions, have always held a fascination for me since my own near-death experience in 2003.  The ancients of early Egypt and Pre-Egyptian civilizations referred to them in their sacred texts as “Portals of the Gods” — stepping-stones to other dimensions of mind and matter.  Are they real?  Absolutely!

Recently, I was invited to test drive a man-made Stargate device created by John Haan from Valkenswaard in the Netherlands. Haan had an incredible experience in a forest near his home back in October 1997 which transformed him on many levels.  Ultimately, it led to information received on how to build his own Stargate for both healing and enlightenment.  It’s an interesting story…

While walking through the forest near his home, Haan saw a strange blue light between the trees that transformed into the silhouette of a beautiful woman.  This blue light came towards him, then right into him, causing a tingling sensation all over.  The blue light quickly turned into a white light as it moved throughout his body.  Seconds later it shot out of him and was gone.  He recalls that it left him with a magical sense of love more beautiful than anything he had ever felt.   This experience later caused him to start receiving downloads of information from what he calls “the blue light beings” in all kinds of languages, including Latin and Spanish, which he wrote down.  Not understanding either language or what he was writing, he had to have the texts translated and found to his astonishment that they contained specific instructions to build a device called a trainer, that would include lead-free crystal orbs.  He was to place these crystals into the trainer to connect them with extraordinary energy.  What resulted was a Stargate pattern with 24 charged crystals that includes bio-geometric codes which create a unique energy field.  He was instructed that the name for this energy is “Dominus Cervix” – a Latin term meaning Original Portal.

As soon as I saw Haan’s creation, I was intrigued by the KJF Stargate PhotoMerkaba layout of his Stargate, as you can see from the picture.  I quickly learned it is a two-dimensional form of the three-dimensional Merkaba, intended to create an experience of direct contact, deep inner purification and activation of the light body.  I was game.  Bring it on.  I had done quite a bit of outer space exploration within the meditation state, so I climbed into the zero-gravity chair in the center of the Stargate grid, put on the headphones to listen to multidimensional tones, and went into my meditation mode.  I quickly felt the energy of the Stargate crystal orbs.  There was a tingling and buzz throughout my entire body.  Haan’s device was working for me.  Where it would take me was anyone’s guess.

About midway through my 30-minute session, I found myself out in the cosmos hovering near our fiery Sun.  Many may not know this, but the Sun is believed to be a huge Stargate.  It  has an immense black triangular patch on its surface which emits quick solar-like discharges of unknown origin.  SOHO (NASA) photographs have identified this anomaly, yet scientists have no idea what these strange discharges are.  I was soon to find out.

Within my meditation, I found my mind projecting out into space to remote view the area on the Sun where these mysterious emissions originate.  About 15 years ago, I learned how to remote view directly from Russell Targ of the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) in Palo Alto, California after meeting him at a friend’s New Year’s Eve party.  Targ’s background teaching the military and CIA how to use remote long distance viewing for covert spying is legendary and worth checking out.  CLICK HERE  Anyone can acquire this skill with a little practice.

In my remote viewing mode, I saw several huge spacecraft going into the Sun’s black triangular patch.  They were the size of 2-3 football fields in length and were lined up like some cosmic Panama Canal awaiting passage.  Curiosity got the better of me.  I followed one of the large space vehicles into the Sun’s portal and suddenly found myself traveling through it at warp speed.  To my surprise, I shot out on the other side into a multi-colored universe.  Gone was the black space of our universe, replaced instead by the most incredible colors I had ever seen anywhere.

At the opening to this other universe was an arc formation of Federation-like spaceships.  I suddenly knew, with all certainty, that they were the “gatekeepers” to this dimension.  I watched as each spacecraft coming through the Stargate was energetically scanned in a nanosecond of time for intent and purpose.  I remember wondering if being in our solar system caused possible contamination and perhaps this welcoming committee was responsible for neutralizing such  things.  As each ship quickly passed the “gatekeepers” they shot off into space, each in a different stream of colored light.  One ship exited on a burst of pure white light, another in purple.  I knew that the specific color of light identified not only the occupants on the craft, but also their mission.  It would be akin to flying the colored flag of one’s nation on an ocean-going ship here on Earth.

Unfortunately, my 30-minute session was over too quickly and I found my awareness being pulled back to my physical body sitting in that wonderful anti-gravity chair back here on Earth.  I never did get to follow those other spacecraft awaiting passage back through to our own solar system.   It appears the passage goes both ways, which might explain those strange discharges from the Sun’s black patch.  By all means, the Sun holds some pretty incredible secrets.  The ancients knew and understood this and even referenced it on their artifacts (see the video).  I definitely plan on going back to that Sun Stargate sometime soon in hopes of learning more–or as Captain Kirk would say: “to boldly go where no man has gone before.”  Thank you John Haan for a wonderful enhancement tool to further our own explorations into that final frontier we call consciousness and space.  For more information on Haan’s Stargate:  www.DCIEnergetica.com

The Simple Secret to Longevity

AuntJo

Aunt Jo at 90

I just got back from Chicago, where I celebrated a big birthday milestone with my now 90-year-old Aunt Jo.  Yes, the one I made infamous in my book Fractals of God.  She has managed to outlive all other family members of her generation, even those who were very conscious about good nutrition and health.  Ironically, my Aunt Jo doesn’t care about supplements or what’s in the McDonald’s hamburgers she eats.  I have seen the inside of her refrigerator and always silently groan.  She buys GMO-laden cereals, nitrate-filled lunch meats, pasty white bread, canned soda, and even has a drawer at the bottom of her refrigerator filled with candy bars, sugar-free desserts, and Jello in all colors of the rainbow.  Did I mention she’s also a diabetic?  Yet, oddly enough, she keeps her daily sugar levels under control, even after eating a big slice of Chicago’s Eli’s cheesecake.  Hard to believe, but true.

My mother, who ate macrobiotic and religiously bought organic health foods along with cupboards full of vitamins and minerals, landed up having breast cancer, then dying of colon cancer.  My Aunt Jo, on the other hand, eats virtual crap.  Yet she is alive, sharp as a tack, and is even still driving.  While her aging girlfriends are all falling apart or are in nursing homes, she still cleans her house daily, trudges up and down steps to do her laundry in the bowels of her basement, and sneaks into feature movies.  Okay, maybe the last fact she wouldn’t be too happy to have divulged, but she proclaims that “its okay for senior citizens trying to supplement their fixed income.”

So how has she managed to defy the ravages of age doing everything you’re not supposed to do?  For one–she doesn’t take herself so seriously.  She laughs at getting old, jokes about her friends who try to one up each other on who has the most ailments, and has an intense curiosity for all things.  She can be stubborn, but generally doesn’t hold onto to anger or self-limiting beliefs.  More importantly, she doesn’t dwell on her aging or health, but prefers to really enjoy life instead.

My Aunt is clearly on the right track.  The experts used to think longevity was a product of our genes, now they’re saying genetics accounts for only one-third of how long we live, if that much. The secret is all about ATTITUDE–a positive one.  Research shows the benefits of a positive attitude are far greater than any mind exercises, healthy habits, physical exercise, organic food diets, anti-aging nutrients, or for that matter–anything else you might do.

The most positive character traits of studied longevity cultures is the attitude of not seeing aging as an inevitable path to decr120117060611-betty-white-laughing-story-topepitude.  How often we hear statements such as “I’m too old for that” or “One can’t do that at my age.”    The truth is–if you believe you are falling apart–you will fall apart.   Thoughts are powerful things.  Others are quick to emphasize their family’s bad health history as determining their own.  FACT: One’s genes do not predict one’s destiny.  Just because everyone in your family gets breast cancer doesn’t mean you will as well.  Having the right positive attitude is the best deterrent to disease.

A positive attitude includes one key ingredient–laughter.  I’ve noticed that my Aunt Jo laughs a lot and makes me laugh as well.  She’s like Betty White–and we all know Betty White is a riot and feistier than hell at 90+.  The woman is a walking tome of positive quotes on aging:

A lot of people think this is a goodie two-shoes talking. But we do have a tendency to complain rather than celebrating who we are. I learned at my mother’s knee it’s better to appreciate what’s happening… I think we kind of talk ourselves into the negative sometimes.–Betty White

The most important thing you can do for increasing health and longevity is to eliminate negative and self-limiting beliefs about yourself and others.  This entails staying away from negative people–the whiners, the complainers, the ones that always see the glass half empty rather than half full.  We all know who these people are.  I call them energy vampires and limit my time with them accordingly.  They have a knack for siphoning off your good energy, leaving you wondering why you feel so tired from being around them.  Also on the list is to avoid negative habits, activities, or anything that is not life affirming.  Instead, play uplifting music, find work that feeds your passion, and above all else hang out with people who make you laugh.  I have a great friend that when we get together we can’t stop laughing.  We keep each other young.  She’s the first person I turn to when I’m down.  Before long we’re both laughing about the problem.  Life is too important to take so seriously.  This I’ve learned.  It’s the most simplest solution to both life and longevity.

A Mindfulness Connection

We hear the term “mindfulness” a lot these days.  Mindfulness is being aware of what’s happening right now or being fully present in the moment.  Not an easy task.  With the busy pace of our everyday lives, I agree it’s hard for anyone to stay 100% in the Now.  But ask yourself how many moments, or percentage of each day, you can actually claim to be truly in a state of mindfulness.  Probably not much.  The disturbing truth is that so many of us don’t want to be alone, let alone sit with our own thoughts. We seem compelled to always be doing something—usually on our cell phones or computers. We have sadly become electronic junkies, being immersed in non-stop stimulation for most of our day.  We rarely stop to eat or wait in a line without whipping out our phones for something to do.  Consequently, we often have no idea what’s going on around us or the amazing opportunities we might be missing–not to mention the incredible insights we might have had were we to actually allow reflection.

In a recent study by the Universities of Virginia and Harvard, results showed some of us would rather suffer mild electric shocks than be left alone with our thoughts:

“Researchers in the US recruited volunteers aged 18 to 77 from a church and a farmers’ market, then subjected them to a series of experiments. One test, in which individuals were asked to sit in an empty room doing nothing for a few minutes, had to be abandoned when one of them found a pen and began writing a “to do” list; in another case, a researcher left behind an instruction sheet, and returned to find the volunteer using it for origami. When asked to do nothing at home, 38% admitted to cheating. Finally, participants were sat in a room with no distractions save for a machine that delivered electric shocks. Although they had all suffered shocks before, two-thirds of men, and a quarter of women, chose to distract themselves with pain–with many doing it more than once. “What is striking,” said the team, “is that simply being alone with their thoughts for 15 minutes was apparently so averse that it drove many participants to self-administer an electric shock that they had earlier said they would pay to avoid.”

Shocking? (no pun intended)  I reflected on why some hadn’t simply opted to meditate or even take a 15 minute cat nap, unless eyes closed was not an option.  I know that meditating and napping are still theoretically doing “something,” but it does appear that the study focused on the ability to physically and mentally disengage.   The bottom line is still the same–a majority weren’t able to do it.  Which leads one to ask, what are we missing in life when we are so entrenched in being electronically connected?  I personally believe we’re missing the bigger picture and this state of disconnection  is a roadblock to spiritual growth.

A friend of mine, who is quite often on his cell phone–texting, emailing, or cruising the internet, had an epiphany the other day and sent me the following video.  He told me that it made him take a look at himself and, as a result, he made a substantial change to his “hooked-on-being-hooked-in” lifestyle.  I was impressed.  It always starts with a moment of mindfulness reflection to see a whole new path.  The video is called LOOK UP and you might just see what you’re missing, too…

Freak Lightning or Weather Modification?

600x399184This past Sunday afternoon I was getting ready to walk down to the beach, only a few blocks from my home, when I heard a very loud clap of thunder that shook the Earth like a mini sonic boom.  Thunder is a rare event in Santa Monica, California so I immediately turned around and went back inside not wanting to chance getting caught in a possible shower.  I say shower because we rarely get driving rain here in Southern California, even though current drought conditions would gladly welcome it.  Consider my surprise when a few hours later I get word that 13 people were struck by lightning near the Venice Beach Pier, only a few miles away, with one reported fatality. It just so happens that a friend was there when it happened and he gave me the full story.

Larry was playing volleyball near the Venice Beach Pier with a group of “very tall dudes,'” as he describes it, when around 2:30 PM, “out of nowhere” all of the players “felt a crackle of electricity” over them and were instantaneously knocked to the ground.  One player was struck by lightning on his forehead, another felt it go over his hairline, while Larry (who claims his shortness saved him) only felt an electrical tingling wash over his skin.

Others were not as lucky as the bolt of lightning hit both ocean and beach.  The ocean water became a conductor of electricity, hitting surfers and swimmers, causing one high school boy to drown.  Those on the beach felt it pulse through their bodies.  There was no warning and no time to get off the beach.  The experts claim this freakish weather event is extremely rare and those who have lived here for decades can’t remember it ever having happened to so many beach-goers.  What could have caused it?

What the media didn’t report was that “cloud to ground lightning” was also felt that day at the end of a runaway at Los Angeles Airport, and that such an event has happened at other U.S. airports where they were either hit by freak bolts of lightning or a freakish tornado that came out of nowhere (i.e., Boston, Denver Airports).  I’m not looking to start a conspiracy theory post here, but I do know something about high radio frequency induced storms and it appears it is being done more frequently these days to control the weather.

Dr. Michio Kaku, a physics professor at City College of New York explains on a CBS News interview how lasers are being shot up into clouds with high frequency pulses to produce rain (see below video) and this can cause lightning bolts.   This may be surprising to some, but back in the late 90s Secretary of Defense, William S. Cohen, actually went on record to talk about how weather could be manipulated, not only for climate, but as a form of weaponry.  To quote him:

“Others are engaging in an eco-types of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, (and) volcanoes remotely, using the use of electromagnetic waves.”

I know I will get lots of comments relating this phenomenon to HAARP, the government’s “High Frequency Active Auroral Research” project, but we have no way of knowing if frequency inducing waves have or have not been used to modify California’s weather.  Maybe we’ll never know.  Taking into account Kaku and Cohen’s statements, the more important fact is that through science man has found a way to tinker with Mother Nature.  And ultimately, it often backfires.

Back in the late 70s, I had a great (and now well-known) Journalism professor at NYU, William E. Burrows.  The first day of class he asked us what was the one thing in the world that affected everything in news.  Not one person in the lecture hall got the answer right which is “weather.”   It can cause famine, lead to and/or stop wars, bring about death and destruction, yet also bring about new life.  Pretty powerful stuff.

Consciousness Assisted Technology – The Extraterrestrial Presence

CE-5In my new book Fractals of God I briefly talked about Consciousness Assisted Technology (CAT), a term coined by Dr. Steven Greer of the Sirius Disclosure Project.  Dr. Greer is an emergency room medical doctor who, as a boy, had a near-death experience that resulted in making contact with higher consciousness beings from outside this dimension.  His life took on new meaning.  He became an accomplished meditation teacher, a physician, and in the past 20+ years a well-respected crusader for military and governmental disclosure of classified documents on extraterrestrial (ET) contact.

In 2001, Dr. Greer was responsible for organizing the disclosure hearings at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.  Over 40 top military employees testified on record about their first-hand experiences and what they knew about ET contact and ET technology.  The event was standing room only, the biggest crowd ever in attendance at the National Press Club.  To-date over 500 top military, government, and intelligence employees have come forward to further add their testimony about what our government has known dating back to the time of President Hoover.  It’s fascinating to watch and hard for any skeptic to dismiss when you have very credible military brass revealing all.  If you missed it, there is a link to these hearings at the bottom of this post.

The whole subject intrigued me, so I jumped at the chance to spend a week last April with Dr. Greer and 2o other participants in the Arizona desert learning how to make CE-5 contact. CE-5 is a close encounter of the 5th kind whereby you consciously invite, through prayer and meditation, contact with higher consciousness ET beings.  Sound pretty far out?  Well it was—both literally and figuratively. What I experienced could fill another book and probably will. But I decided to share one small snippet of my experience that had me understanding consciousness assisted technology on a whole different dimensional level.

During the week I was there I made contact with a group of ET beings working on what appeared to be some sort of satellite-type technology. The device was tall, cylindrical in shape, and had long plasma-like rods inside the module.  I wondered about its purpose and was given the information telepathically that the device “defused weaponry in space.” Not at all the answer one might expect.  Immediately I flashed upon a story that aired on CNN on November 28, 2012 where a declassified military report (Project A-119) showed the US Air Force had planned to detonate a nuclear missile on the Moon in response to the Soviets success in launching Sputnik.  Back then our government wanted to show Russia we had the capability of sending missiles to the moon.  The actual attempt was made at the very end of the 1970s, but according to a Colonel Ross Dedrickson and backed by other retired USAF officials, all the missiles were destroyed in space by some “external agency” (UFOs and/or extraterrestrials) before reaching the lunar surface.  I’m sure you’re thinking the same thing I thought–sending a nuclear missile to the moon to show Russia our superiority is sheer lunacy, but I won’t go into that here. Which brings me back to my own ET contact experience with the device that “defuses weaponry in space.”

Inherently I knew our government would take its weaponry being diffused as a hostile act and start a war against all ETs.  Perhaps that’s why we’ve been programmed to fear their contact.  I wondered how such a device that diffused weaponry in space was actually programmed.  Without having to ask, I was told that the device “directly interfaced with God Consciousness and always knew the right humanitarian thing to do.”  I was both astounded and awed.  A technology that is directly linked to the highest God Source intelligence in the universe is pretty incredible.  Now, if only we could interface all our weaponry on Earth with this same consciousness, there would likely be no more need for war.   This consciousness assisted technology automatically knows that nuclear missiles pointed any where is a threat to humanity as well as all other parts of our multi-dimensional universe.   The repercussions from shooting nuclear missiles at the moon is unfathomable and unconscionable.  I got the distinct impression that these ET beings I encountered had extreme compassion and patience for us as an evolving race, but we were like little kids playing with sticks of dynamite.  More highly evolved species have to sometimes step in and protect us from ourselves.  If they wanted to destroy us, they would have already done so long ago, or let us do it to ourselves.  However, they know we are all connected and what affects us, ultimately affects them too.

We may still have a long way to go before we are at that level of consciousness assisted technology, but I have faith we will someday get there.  In the meantime, I welcome whatever the ETs can teach us about awakening this planet’s collective consciousness.  Right now we need all the help we can get.

Waking Illusion or Dream Reality

RealityCheckAheadIs life as we know it real or some illusionary dream reality? Can we exist in two waking/dream dimensions simultaneously? These are some deeper philosophical questions to ponder, and I don’t hold all the answers, but they certainly intrigue me.

This question always brings to mind a 9-year old client I once treated for seizure disorder. Audra developed nocturnal seizures after a bad vaccination reaction when she was five. At school she was in special education classes for learning disabilities. Her behavior was often slow and lethargic–almost like someone going through life sleepwalking. The epileptic seizures didn’t happen every night and rarely ever happened during the daytime, but the damage had taken its toll in all aspects of her life due to her lack of energy. Her mother brought her into my office for neurofeedback brainwave training to help reduce and regulate her daughter’s sleep onset seizures, which were causing a sleep disorder.

While hooked up to an EEG monitor, Audra’s frontal lobe (the executive function of the brain) displayed high amplitude slow wave theta/delta activity. This is the type of activity our brain makes when drifting off to sleep or in an altered state of consciousness. Audra had an abundance of this activity. Consequently, I had to adjust visual and auditory Neurofeedback training rewards to make it easier for her or frustration would quickly set in and she would give up. It was usually a struggle.

Then one day, while Audra was doing a training session, I suddenly heard faster beeps signaling she was racking up points and doing outstanding. I glanced over at Audra and she was sound asleep in her chair. I looked at the EEG monitor and saw she was making consistent wide-awake beta activity without even trying. I’d never seen this pattern before with her and she was clearly not in the throes of a seizure. Her closed eyelids showed no indication of rapid-eye movement (REM) sleep, either. I was perplexed. Most people show faster beta activity while awake, and the slow theta/delta activity while sleeping. Audra was just the opposite. I’d never seen anything like it. Intuition kicked in and I knew I was witnessing an anomaly.

I had the clear thought at the time, however unproven, that Audra’s real waking world might very well be what we call the sleep state. Then when she transitioned upon waking, her brain would slip into what looked like an abnormal dream-like state. I tried to get her to talk about her “dream” experiences while sleeping, but she wouldn’t open up. It was if she had a secret she was not going to share.

Which comes back to the point–what do we understand about reality anyway? Is a dream/wake reversal state even possible? Perhaps. Later, I would learn from researchers studying Alzheimer’s disease, that these patients seem to be able to transverse both dimensional worlds as they deteriorate and become more communicatively unreachable. Some patients were able to later reveal how the other world seemed more real at times than this world. Consequently, they began spending more time in this other world until the body’s life energies eventually withdrew and they exited this plane. This is fascinating stuff.

The closest you can get to understanding this duo-dimensional world is through the practice of lucid dreaming—knowing you’re dreaming while in a dream state. If you’ve ever experienced a lucid dream, then you can probably attest to how real that other world can feel. The trick to staying in a lucid state is to not let yourself get too emotional (i.e. excitement, laughing, fear, etc.) or it will wake you right up. I once tried opening a refrigerator in a lucid dream to see if I could eat veggies while in that state. The second I put the dream carrot in my mouth, I woke right up. It’s hard to master. But perhaps for some it’s not at all. Which leads us right back to where we started—what is the true nature of reality?

ONENESS FOR ALL

I_remember_OnenessONENESS–individually we strive to attain it, but what does it mean? It’s not a simple answer, for the term can mean many different things to different people. Collectively we are one humanity, one species, with a common evolutionary destiny. Our origins are the same and our interconnectedness on a human level is without question. Yet, on a higher level, we are more than one humanity, we are the universal “I”.

I recently got to experience this in a rather profound sense.  I had just attended a week of intense meditation work in Arizona, and as I was driving home I felt a shift.  I looked out my driver window at all the hundreds of cars speeding along to their unknown destinations and I felt an overwhelming oneness with the drivers and passengers in each and every vehicle.  This is not something most Los Angelenos can ever admit too.  It is a battleground every day on our city’s congested freeways.  But on that particular day (due to all the meditation, I’m sure) I became aware that every car was filled with other “Kathys”.  There was Kathy in one car experiencing being in the body of a male (a rather buff one, I might add); there was Kathy in that Prius driving like a jerk trying to get ahead of everyone else; there was Kathy in that big semi-trailer looking bored and extremely tired and unhappy.  Wow, I thought!  This was quite a new perspective.  Suddenly, I had greater compassion and understanding for all those other Kathys.  They were me in all my multi-facets navigating this thing called “life”.

It didn’t end there.  I stopped off to buy water and came upon a man, dressed as a beggar, both homeless and penniless, needing food.  Better give Kathy some money, I thought–so I did.  With this sense of Oneness there was no way I could be dismissive or over-reactive to what my fellow man ever did.  Every one of them was me experiencing life in its many forms.  We are in this together.   It was very enlightening.  While that intense sense of Oneness has slightly faded, I am still aware of this inter-connectedness we all share.  I practice it in crowds to see how all my other parts are doing.  Like neurons making connections at rapid speed, we are a human internet—a Global Brain.  We are ONE.

Overcoming “Friday the 13th” Fears

3641c531ba98e18b2dc0ceefc9e37ab3Today is an auspicious day for me. My first blog post ever, which just so happens to fall on Friday the 13th. I admit that the pressure of keeping up with an ever evolving social media scene raises some fears in me. I wonder if I will be any good at this thing called “blogging” or, more importantly, will I have anything worthwhile to say which might inspire others?

Years ago, while still practicing as a clinical psychologist, I had a client come in on Friday the 13th and wish me a happy “Triskaidekaphobia”. I had never heard the word before. They hadn’t covered this particular phobia in graduate school—“fear of the number 13”. So the irony of all this is that I am choosing to face my fear of writing this blog on the 13th. There are just no coincidences in life.

Which got me to wondering why so many people universally avoid the number 13? Even buildings tend to eliminate the 13th floor on elevator banks and call it the 14th instead. Why are we so superstitious about this one simple number? Since numbers totally fascinated me after my near-death experience, I decided to look into the matter further.

The number 13 is actually what the ancients refer to as a “Karmic” number. It symbolizes the forces of upheaval leading to revealing new ground. In other words, CHANGE. Change in general is a primary fear for every man. It encompasses the unknown. It puts us through tests and trials as we strive for greater spiritual consciousness.

Let’s look at the number 13 by breaking it down. The number 1 is associated with new beginnings. The number 3 is a sacred number (in my opinion) and symbolizes communication, self-expression, creativity, expansion, growth and manifestation. You put 1 and 3 together and you have great promise. You have God-given blessings in disguise. Out of one’s fear can come liberation and so today I am facing my fear of blogging. And you know what—this entry just flowed out of me and I actually enjoyed it!  www.trinfinity8.com
