I had the pleasure of chatting with Dr. Bruce Lipton, author of “The Biology of Belief – Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter & Miracles” today on Well.Org radio. He is prominently featured in my upcoming movie titled “Vitality”. We had a chance to discuss genetics, epigenetics, beliefs, health, new science, and fate. He’s good fun…enjoy.
If you’ve tried to meditate and can’t figure out why it didn’t work for you, please read on. Here’s the solution to your dilemma:
I often encounter mental blocks with students who are trying to learn how to meditate because their world view is jaded. People treat meditation like some sort of “chill pill”- something that helps them get through their hectic days. This form of thinking has relegated an ancient form of deep wisdom into an inconvenient substitute for a pill. That’s not the design and is a wholly inappropriate way dealing with one’s self.
The human brain is the most pliable and amenable to suggestion at an early age. The suggestions we receive before the age of seven get deeply embedded in our psyche and, we have come to understand that subconscious programs run over 80% of our daily functions. They become the foundation of who we are, how we see the world, and what type of genetic expression we manifest well into our adult lives. They become our beliefs and our underlying programming which determine our reality.
The one thing that has become so appalling to me as I have been watching several loved ones raise their children is the degree of influence and control the media and large corporations have on our lives. (more…)
I had the distinct pleasure of hanging out with Doctor Bruce Lipton yesterday. I was interviewing him for the Vitality Movie which is a documentary I’ve been working on with Sacred Mysteries Productions. The movie is set to release soon and has an incredible cast of notable figures in the Health and Wellness sphere in it.
I’d like to start off by saying that Dr. Lipton is a great guy. He knows his stuff but keeps the twinkle in his eyes from the rock and roll era he grew up in. He’s a musician which makes him an artist and a scholar- a well rounded combination. This was a fun interview.
We discussed the nature of how cells process information and how that impacts our overall health. We discussed the problems with the current healthcare system and he had wonderful things to say about how to create solutions for it. We discussed Acupuncture, Chiropractic , nutrition, energy medicine (qi gong), and psychotherapy as integral facets of the new healthcare model.
The power of the subconscious mind was a big subject and we discussed a variety of strategies on how people can change their lives and free themselves of their mental entrapment. Bruce has some very nice ideas about conscious parenting and what it means to take on that responsibility. I highly suggest reading his book: “The Biology of Belief” and I’ll be getting this footage over to the editing department so I can leak some excerpts of our talk.
I love meeting with scientists like Dr. Lipton because it offers an incredible opportunity for integration of esoteric knowledge with new science. My years of training in alchemy and energy work have introduced me to far out concepts and interesting people along the way. It is great to sit with someone like Dr. Lipton and discuss these topics through the looking glass of cellular biology. We really have come full circle and it is a wonderful time to be alive.
How does the AMEX Black Card relate to your happiness?
In the classic series of “The Lord of the Rings”, J.R.R. Tolkein had created a masterpiece of literature and allegory. I remember reading a bit from an interview with him once and was interested in his description of Frodo’s Ring of Power. For those of you who have not become familiar with this work yet, drop everything and go read those books!
In the interview, Tolkein kept referring to the ring as “The Machine”. (more…)
Have you ever noticed that when you are stressed or afraid, you stop breathing? It happens all of the time. Our emotional state overtakes our energy field and we stop circulating the flow of vital energy throughout our bodies. This locks up the coherent flow of our Vitality and entraps thoughts, emotions, disease, and toxins in our system. We start to breathe in a shallow fashion and we feel compressed- actually we literally are. The torroidal field of our vital energy starts to collapse and we densify- losing the flow of the Levity inducing charge that keeps us young and vibrant. It is one of the most common ways we ail- something so simple.
Hanging out with Leonard Orr this summer, he and I discussed his form of circular breathing and how he uses prescriptions for people who come to him for a whole host of ailments. This is very similar to what we do in my Qi Gong tradition- breath work for homework. It is so easy yet so difficult. Why so hard? Because we don’t want to feel what has come up- breathing life to a thought or emotion dislodges it and moves it through our field. If we learn to observe it with equanimity and an open heart, it simply passes and is gone. The problem- we freak out and hang on- then the repressed charge gets so strong that we can hardly breathe.
The fix is easy- deep lower abdominal breathing for ten minutes or so and then breathe to the area of repression.
Find a track here and get to work!
One week has not gone by when, upon finding out I teach Qi Gong, I am asked “Is that like Tai Chi?” The answer is- yes, kind of. Here’s the scoop folks:
Qi Gong literally translates to “energy work”. It is the ancient Asian practice of energy cultivation and breath work. Known as a form of yoga, the practice of Qi Gong comes in many forms- some seated, some in deep stances, and others looking more like self massage. There are literally thousands of traditions practicing different forms of Qi Gong out there. Many of them come from health and healing practices while others from martial arts lineages. Why martial arts? Easy- let’s cultivate your internal energy, strengthen your vital flow, refine your focus, and teach you to project that power out of your palms and into that guy. Yeah- you see it in the Kung Fu movies all the time.
What else are these Qi Gong people doing? (more…)
Be very careful with the source of wheat you purchase from. The human body does not tolerate GM wheat well as I have witnessed in my clinical experience.
From Natural News:
Coming Soon to a (Toxic) Farm Near You: Monsanto’s Genetically Modified Wheat
by E. Huff, staff writer
(NaturalNews) Monsanto, the multinational agriculture giant most known for its propagation of genetically-modified (GM) crops, has decided to resurrect its pursuit of GM wheat. Abandoned in 2004 due to opposition from American growers, merchants, and consumers, Monsanto’s GM wheat program is making a comeback.
Apparently many American wheat growers have since changed their mind about the issue. A survey conducted back in February revealed that more than 75 percent of wheat farmers are now interested in growing GM wheat. Citing concerns about pestilence and disease, farmers are reevaluating GM wheat based on claims by Monsanto that GM wheat will fare better than conventional in resisting bugs, disease, drought and frost.
Many nations around the world, including industrialized nations in Asia and Europe, have wholly rejected GM crops and foods that are made with them. Since 45 percent of the U.S. wheat crop is exported to Europe and Japan alone, the decision to allow GM wheat to be grown in the States will have a huge negative impact on the wheat business.
Hinged upon the recent food crisis in 2008 that caused the price of wheat to more than triple, Monsanto’s endeavors to capitalize on wheat by altering it genetically could not have been timed more precisely. Both China and Australia have been researching and running trials on Monsanto’s GM wheat for years and North America looks to be next if the AgriGiant has its way.
Earlier this year, Monsanto purchased Montana-based WestBred, a company that specializes in germplasm wheat breeding. This move indicates that the corporation intends to move forward with its plan to bring GM wheat to North America.
Concerns about the negative effects of GM crops, which include a variety of illnesses and digestive tract problems when consumed, continue to warrant opposition to their use. Conventional crop fields have also been shown to become contaminated with GM seed through pollination and cross-contamination.
If the public hopes to prevent wheat from taking the same GM course that corn and soy have, it is going to have to express loud and clear opposition to its introduction.
