 The Everyday Wisdom of Thich Nhat Hanh 

Publishers Description: Bringing the energy of true presence into our lives really does change things for the better—and all it takes is a little training. This treasury of 365 gems of daily wisdom from one of the most beloved Buddhist teachers of our age is a help and support for anyone who wants to train to meet every moment of life with 100 percent attention. Thich Nhat Hanh shows how practicing mindfulness can transform every area of our lives—and how its benefits radiate beyond us to affect others and the whole, larger world.

Editor's Notes: I don't have much to add to the description other than it is true to most of Hanh's books - full of inspiration, thoughtfulness, and upliftment. This is a lovely way to start the day. I don't take them in order, but open randomly each morning for a "message" to start my day. This morning, I turned to 121, "Every object of the mind is itself mind." Words to ponder for sure.

Hypnosis, Modern Magick from Ancient Roots

Hypnosis, under many different names, has been around since before the Pharaohs. It has been used as a cure all, mystical rite, entertainment, and forbidden magical tool. Hypnosis has been revered and feared in cycle after cycle throughout the centuries. In the 1800's hypnosis gained recognition from the medical profession as a safe anesthesia. But it was time consuming to use and didn't work for everyone. With the advent of ether, hypnosis fell into disuse. Magicians and showmen began using it for entertainment, and hypnosis lost credibility as a therapeutic and medical tool. Some professionals continued to use hypnosis successfully, but mainly it was mystics and spiritual seekers who continued to use hypnosis as a tool for growth and  self help. The state of hypnosis often allows a clearer channel to the higher self.

Today. hypnosis is a powerful and useful therapy tool. With understanding about the process of hypnosis, it has become less mysterious and more useful. Thanks to pioneers in behavioral science such as Dr. Milton Erickson. Richard Bandler, John Grinder. Dr. John Kappas. Leslie Cameron Bandler Lebeau, and others, the knowledge of hypnosis has grown and evolved. Research has been enormously helpful in removing the shroud of secrecy surrounding hypnosis. Fewer and fewer people fear hypnosis. Stories of modern day Svengali's or Cagliostrols are rarely taken seriously. Hypnosis is commonly used by doctors. psychotherapists, dentists. meditation teachers, yoga teachers. and other professionals.

The state of hypnosis occurs when brainwave energy is concentrated and slowed. Normal waking brainwaves operate at 40-60 cycles per second. During times of focused attention. strong emotion. mental confusion, spiritual bliss, psychic awareness, and induced hypnosis. brainwaves slow to 14-40 cycles per second or slower.  

What does this mean? How is hypnosis experienced by the individual? As a subject begins to slow the brainwaves. attention is shifted from the external to the internal. The subject begins to pay more attention to what Is going on inside him/herself and less attention to what is going on outside. The mind is able to focus on a single thought or idea, and keep that focus as long as necessary. Concentration becomes easy. The body is more easily controlled by the mind during hypnosis; learning comes more quickly; mental and emotional changes are more readily installed.

Contrary to the outward appearances of sleep. during hypnosis the mind becomes sharp. alert, and clear. Physical strength can be increased by as much as ten times.

An experiment done by Russian psychologist Platanof. demonstrates the ability of the mind to rule the body. He gave subjects large amounts of alcoholic beverages, suggesting that it was fruit juice. After consuming enough to put a sailor under the table, the subjects remained perfectly sober. Then the experiment was reversed. giving subjects fruit juice or water with the suggestion that it was alcohol. The subjects became inebriated. After publishing his paper on the experiment, he never repeated it. He said that it was a waste of a valuable commodity.

In 1898, Boris Sidis experimented with subjects who wore eyeglasses. He regressed them back to an age where they had perfect eyesight. During the regression, they all regained perfect eyesight.

In 1948. an experiment was reported in Medical Hypnosis testing the heightened senses of a hypnotized subject. The test subjects were shown blank cards and told that on one of them there was a certain picture. The subject hallucinated the picture. and the operator marked the back of it in order to identify it later. The cards were shuffled and dealt. The subjects thenk correctly identified the card with the imaginary figure.

One of the fathers of modern hypnosis, Dr. James Braid found that some subjects could recognize objects without seeing them if they were within 1/2 an inch from their skin. He also experimented with hypnotized. subjects who were placed in an unfamiliar dark room. It was found that they could walk around the completely darkened room without bumping into anything.

Hundreds of experiments have been done with pain control and hypnosis. One common demonstration is to tell a hypnotized subject that he/she is going to be touched with a flame or a lighted cigarette. The operator then touches the subject with the eraser end or a pencil. The subject will create reddened skin and raise a blister. The process can be reversed. If a subject is touched with a lighted cigarette or flame and told that it is the eraser end of a pencil, there will be no reddened skin or blister.

A prominent hypnosis experimenter in England claims that hypnosis can be used for birth control.

Members of the Society for Ethical Hypnosis, a group of Medical professionals who use hypnosis as a medical tool. have been experimenting with hypnosis as a tool for weight control. They tell hypnotized subjects that they can control their own metabolism rate.

Hypnosis has been used successfully for nail growth, hair growth, breast development. skin diseases, allergies, acne, menstrual disorders. and more. Patients suffering from severe burns are often able to heal more quickly and with less scarring when hypnosis is used as part of their therapy. Bleeding, blood pressure and body temperature has been successfully controlled through hypnosis.

A hypnotized subject can remember, in minute detail, anything that has occurred in his or her experience from the moment of birth and before. In the book Hypnosis and the Law by Dr. Bradley William Kuhns. case after case is cited of hypnotized victims and witnesses recalling consciously forgotten details.

Hypnosis is a wonderful tool for learning, healing, meditation, improving skills and talents, releasing creativity, unwanted emotional patterns, increasing psychic sensitivity, and more. Why isn't it more commonly used by professionals? Perhaps because, until recently, it was believed that only some people could be hypnotized. We now know that everyone can be hypnotized. But, some people must be induced into it in a different way.

Before this discovery, hypnosis suggestibility was judged by the subject,s responses to certain physical stimuli. If there was no physical response, the subject was labeled "unhypnotizable." However, due to experiments and work done with biofeedback, and by Dr. Milton H. Erickson, Dr. John Kappas and others, it was discovered that uhypnotizable subjects can enter into an Alpha state; they only need a different approach. These subjects need to be indirectly. through inference and unspecified guidance.

With a little understanding about the process of hypnosis, some skills in giving effective suggestions to a hypnotized subject, the hypnotist can use this valuable tool in the best way possible. Hypnosis is finally out of the Dark Ages.

A Happy Pocket Full of Money

Publisher's Description:

A Happy Pocket Full of Money, first self-published in 2001, so impressed Rhonda Byrne, that she asked David Gikandi to become a consultant on The Secret.

In A Happy Pocket Full of Money, Gikandi explains that true wealth is not about having buckets of cash, but rather understanding the value within. True wealth flows out of developing “wealth consciousness,” that incorporates gratitude, a belief in abundance, and an ability to experience joy in life.

The Importance of Having an Open Heart

All of us are aware by now that something is up big time on Planet Earth. It's pretty easy to reside in a little fear and anticipation. I've had the unusual experience over the past 11 years of having ongoing conversations with 2 group intelligences that are a main part of the "inter-dimensional management team" for our planet. I've had the opportunity to ask them a myriad of questions concerning what's up on our planet. Their answers are far more complex than I can go into in this article, but I'd like to focus on the connection between DNA, chakras, soul evolution and the "shift".

Science recognizes DNA as the basic building block of a human. It is coded to program the growth and functioning of our bodies. There's 12 strands of DNA and according to science, only 2 strands are active and the rest are termed "junk DNA".  Except the junk DNA is not really junk.
Our DNA is a microcosm for the universe. The strands are like receiving stations for the greater hologram and ultimately God Source.  The first seven strands roughly correspond to the first 7 chakras. The chakras are energy centers in our body going from the base of our spine to the top of our head, usually referred to as the root chakra and the crown chakra. For the purpose of this article, we're going to talk about the first four chakras, but the others operate in a similar manner.  This is not meant to be an article on chakras , but rather to explain the incredible importance of opening your fourth chakra in this particular lifetime.

The Root Chakra - at the base of the spine - connected with survival

The Sex Chakra - our genitals - connected with sex and creativity

The Power Chakra - our solar plexis or stomach area - connected with power

The Heart Chakra - located at our heart - connected with compassion and empathy

Those four chakras connect with the first four strands of DNA. Most humans operate with 2 and part of the third activated. i.e. survival, sex, and power.
We usually associate with people who are activated in the same areas we are. The way we evolve is to be in the energy field which is activated at a higher level than us. For example, someone who is developing their power chakra might have a job where someone is bossing them around and they keep taking in that energy, activating their chakra and their 3rd strand of DNA until they master it and they are now qualified to boss someone else around.
To activate the 4th strand of DNA you would need to be around the energy field of someone, a group, or even a lover, where you learn to integrate the qualities of compassion and empathy. This is not something you can do on a mental level by being "nice". The old idea of having a guru, took advantage of this principle. If your guru was activated in his fourth chakra, after a certain period, you would integrate those qualities, your fourth strand of DNA would open and you could hold the energy on your own.

When you are able to hold that energy of the 4th chakra, you radiate it into your space. People feel uplifted around you. You share energy easily with others.
In this period of "shift" it's very important to activate your 4th chakra. According to my information, we are at the end of a 75,000 year cycle. The instreaming energies from the greater universe, are at their greatest amplitude in 75,000 years. All our intentions can be amplified many times as a result of these energies. Everything we think, do, or intend is amplified and it's a great time to intend to open your fourth chakra. Here's why:

Some of you may be familiar with the idea that the Earth is alive and aware. We all exist within the energy field of the Earth. The Earth could also be said to have chakras and for the past 75,000 years the earth was operating as a third chakra planet. Because of this "shift" and these high instreaming energies, the Earth is right now becoming a fourth chakra planet. This is the real import of the Mayan Calendar end date.

This has great ramifications for our future lifetimes. According to my understandings, we've all had many lifetimes on earth -thousands - and each time we carry forth our energy body and DNA imprint to our next lifetime, with no memory of our previous existences. But our talents, potentials, character, and other traits are stored in our energy bodies, like a computer. There's a great tendency to repeat the same patterns over many lifetimes.

Because the Earth is moving into the fourth chakra, there is an unusual stipulation regarding our future lifetimes. If we are to reincarnate on this upgraded earth, we need to have our fourth chakra/fourth strand of DNA open at least 51%. Otherwise our energy field won't fit into this "new Earth". If we don't fit, the universe has a way of handling this. Our Souls get moved to a new planet in another star system still in it's 3rd chakra evolutionary phase and we are now cycle repeaters going through hundreds of thousands of years of repeating the lessons of the third chakra.

Since those people with open hearts won't be on this planet, it's not going to be a fun place. You might call it the hell planet. In fact, this explanation I've just given has a lot of similarities to the prophecies of Jesus - "one will be taken and one will be left behind", "the meek will inherit the Earth". Jesus was working with the same management team, attempting to prepare humankind for this shift.

Now that i've got some of you anxious, I'd like to give some guidance on opening your heart and your fourth DNA strand. Having a great relationship is one way. Congratulations if you have one, but they're not always so easy to find. Alternatively, find groups who hold a hearted energy - a meditation group, a Church Group (just ignore the dogma), etc. I suspect you can find some great groups if you explore the offerings in this magazine. I know Anita and Alan Burns are very active in working with groups. I haven't experienced them directly, but I suspect you'll find a hearted energy present in their environment. Check it out carefully. When you find the right group, your heart will have an automatic response and lift. That's the sign.

This is probably short notice, but I'll be speaking at the Conscious Life Expo on Sunday, October 2nd at 6pm. I'll also be doing a workshop in Pasadena on October 7th. You can find more on the workshop at www.creatorgodworkshop.com.  We'll be going into great depth on getting that heart chakra open at the workshop. My friend Terry channels the Council of Elohim and they'll be sharing their energy and guidance on the subject as well.
Here's a couple photos of myself and Terry at a workshop. There's always amazing energies in the room, projected from our Sources. You can see the blue orb on my elbow and see what Terry looks like when she's channeling.

[Insert attached pictures here]

Many of the ideas I've shared in this article first came into my awareness as I was writing The Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce, about and with David Wilcock. David was channeling a Source that was part of the "management team" and it was very important for them to explain all this and give us humans some pure guidance and wisdom from the higher realms, on how to get our hearts open  in this special time we're in.  

Hope to meet some of you at my Pasadena Workshop. Have a great week..........Wynn

Fear: The Siren Call to Change

Excerpted from the newly released "Practical Conscious Creation: Daily Techniques to Manifest Your Desires" (Findhorn Press, Fall 2011)

When most people think of fear, they conjure pictures of screaming women in slasher movies, horrible mindless villains, or heroes chased by zombies. But, for most of us, fear feels more like an insidious virus that our minds and emotions create to stop us from moving forward.

How to Dialogue and Heal with Archangel Metatron

Metatron “The Flower of Life” -- Patron Angel of Children

I was approached at my mom’s nursing home by the kitchen helper, Sonia about a case. Sonia mentioned that her daughter Brenda’s third eye was really open.

I thought that this was just really great. Brenda had been communicating with the spirit world. A boy spirit was following her around and wanted to play with her all the time.  Brenda wanted the boy spirit to leave her alone.  

The first picture that came to my third eye and flashed in brilliant light was the Archangel Metatron. His energy is very powerful but gentle. He whispered to me, to recommend Brenda to tell her boy spirit companion to go to the light. His guidance is firm and strong, and very clear.

Archangel Metatron is known for helping and teaching sacred geometry and esoteric wisdom to psychic and highly sensitive youths and children.  They are referred to as Indigos, Crystals. and Rainbow Children. Unfortunately and very sad, is that they are very misunderstood and even medicated. In today’s society,

It seems to be the norm to have children on medication. It is a shame since the talents and gifts that they are born with are so profound and enlightening.

I have a neighbor who has a four-year-old son, Brandon. He is not ready to speak or hear yet.  How he communicates is telepathically, and in his own sign language, even a song.  Archangel Metatron is here to help Brandon, in the process of what he is becoming and evolving as a human being on this planet. It s quite a treat to communicate my thought patterns to him.  He giggles, laughs, and claps his hands with delight and a “knowing” that I understand him.

If you are a teacher or a counselor in a child related field, call on Archangel Metatron, to mentor your career and job search. Archangel Metatron will help you obtain grants, contacts and ideas. He will manifest your needs so your focus can be directed towards his beloved Indigos, Crystals and Rainbow Children.  He will help you guide your counseling sessions, one on one, parent or children.  The emphasis is on understanding and connecting with their spiritual path.
