An Angel Appeared

Pondering Life
Pondering Life

On Wednesdays from 11 am to 1 pm I am at the Center for Spiritual Living, Greater Austin to hold the consciousness for the community and to offer donation-based Spiritual Mind Treatments. [NOTE: Since the center is moving, I will not be doing this until we find another space.]

I was there two weeks ago and had one of those “real moments” that make life valuable.

I was in treatment for the center and I heard the door open. This lady I did not recognize came in. She introduced herself as Melissa. She said that she was riding by (on her bike) and was reminiscing about a time before we were using this space. I invited her to look around. I then got to witness a beautiful event as seen from the heart.

Evidently our space used to be an AA office. 15+ years ago she came in, scared, shoe-less and needing a miracle. She had no shoes in her life, was staying drunk and other bad things which I will not write here. She pointed to the spot just inside our sanctuary and said that she sat there as far in the back away from the speaker in the front as possible – scared to death. She was so withdrawn and non-trusting that no one could touch her.

At one point a woman at that meeting came over and told her that she was going to braid her hair. She has very long hair down to her lower back. Melissa did not object. A tear started streaming down her face as she recounted this memory and let this unknown woman braid her hair. She said at that moment her “armor” started to crack a little bit.

She then pointed out that the office for our minister was the half-way room for those who were too afraid to commit to the big room; they would gather there and talk. Have you ever been that scared about your life?

She pointed to the kitchen and said that is the first place she ever did service for anyone or any organization. She continued to recall important spots in the building where healing moments along her journey occurred. It was a beautiful journey, accompanying her on her memory of acknowledgment of her personal progress.

Then she said that where the podium currently is, is where she and her husband renewed their vows, sober together for the first time.

I am the most lucky person on the planet at this moment. To witness someone sharing their story of recovery in such a powerful moment in her life. I could feel her growth in the few minutes she reminisced and shared. Then she gave me a hug. A beautiful moment for sharing.

Especially at this time when we are about to move away from this space because the owner is allowing all tenants’ leases to expire without renewing them. To know that this space for at least 15+ years has been used for healing is powerful. It is nice to know that this healing energy will continue to spread into the new uses of the property.

This is what I call a real moment with a real angel. I had to read a book called Real Moments by Barbara DeAngelou while studying to become a licensed Science of Mind practitioner. It was about having those moments in life that you remember; that impact you on a deeper level. Those moments when two people drop facades and connect from the heart.

[An aside: There’s a graphic that Frank Natale used to use, facetiously called the fried egg, that describes our crust which develops over time that serves to separate us and others from our true selves and each other. I’ll post about it sometime – and do a class about it; personally powerful stuff.]

This was the perfect reminder for me that day of my own progress from my troubled background. Once in a while it is important to acknowledge ourselves for the evolution we have made in this lifetime. Surely we are not the same person we were 10, 20 or even just 5 years ago. I certainly hope not. Quite often we get ‘stuck’ in the gotta-do-to-get mode in life and forget to pause and take stock of how good life really is.

When was the last time an angel visited you?

Quick Success from Silva Mind Body Healing

Tai Chi
Tai Chi

Led by a goal, following intuition.

This is called effortless manifestation. If I would allow myself to do more goals this way… what fun would that be?

I had a result from the Silva Mind Body Healing class. During that class I set as a goal to find a movement (aka exercise) that I would totally enjoy doing. As many recent students know I am currently in week seven of a self-prescribed minimum of three months detoxing, cleansing and eating strictly vegan.

I set this goal of finding the most perfect movement for my body that I would enjoy doing. Well, fast forward to the Tuesday after the class. I went to the south Austin Time Warner Cable office to exchange cable boxes. I left and was driving up South First street heading to the post office and I saw this sign that caused my car to drive into a corner shopping center.

I swear it. My car turned itself into this center when I saw the sign: ‘Qi Gong’ 😉

I thought, innocently enough: I want to go talk with them about what this is. I have had a curiosity since I first heard about it. But sometimes in my life I let my logical mind analyze to paralyze; then nothing changes. Hmmm. I have gotten a whole lot better with that one.

I had no inkling of doing a thing about it. I just wanted information; feed the logic. I signed up for six months of Tai Chi. Evidently this is the basis for learning Qi Gong. I just had my second lesson this evening. Loving it! Loving it!

As Graham was talking to me about it, showing me some moves and telling me how he had healed a heart problem that he was born with, I was reminded that through my spiritual training I have learned healing through spiritual mind treatment. Through my training with the Silva Method I have learned  healing techniques using my mind and hands. Maybe it is time that I learn to move the life force energy even beter through physical movement and learn from a system that has been around for thousands of years.

So I followed my instinct that day and turned in ‘just to inquire’ and ended up being led to my goal: the most perfect way to move my body with purpose as I continue to cleanse, detox and release unnecessary weight. Who knows where this may lead. I’ll just enjoy the journey for now.

Wanna join me? Monday and Wednesday evening 6:45 to 7:30 pm.

It’s bring a friend week: You can come for free Monday, September 7 and Wednesday, Sept 9. Let me know.

To Michael Jackson… a Bright Bright Star Amongst Us

I scheduled today as a day off for me. With my increased busy-ness teaching on weekends I needed a day of rejuvenation. Of course, my slow day is writing some blog posts, doing some announcements and a few other things like writing a talk I’m giving in San Antonio this Sunday.

But today is set aside to cleanse my body and to honor Michael Jackson.

I am doing one of Dr. Joseph Huerta’s One-Day Detox Teas to cleanse my liver and get my body alkaline again. And I am watching the memorial service for Michael Jackson. Of course, there are tears involved when I’m cleansing and remembering someone who had a huge impact on my life… from a distance, yet seemingly from within.

We are one year different in age and I remember One Bad Apple; I always had to hear that song on the radio when I was 10/11. Then fast forward to me living overseas when his Thriller album and music video came out. I actually bought that black jacket with inlaid red that he wore in that video. I wore it proudly; why did I give that away? I danced to all of his songs in various cities in the US, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Austria and other places.

Then when he and the other star singers sang We are the World with all the heart possible for all the world to be as one… Another song I requested be played over and over from Houston radio stations… and shed tears many times through it.

And I say ‘then, again’ as he was always topping himself as a creative genius and a bright star for the world… but when he sang Man in the Mirror. Oh my God. I was in the process of doing some deep deep soulful searching with a master teacher at that time… and this song was the lyrics of personal growth, personal responsibility and personal empowerment… leading to world enrichment.

How can such a bright star be taken from us so soon?

Did it shine too brightly and burn itself out? Is that even possible? I don’t think so. It’s Divine Timing.

He was a powerful spiritual being on this planet singing the way for all peoples to be as a family to each other. And we see how well the world responded to this challenging concept; challenging to our fears, that is.

He was a bright star, is a bright star and will always be a bright star through his legacy of creative genius, his songs with lyrics of inspiration and his willingness to be as he was created to be: A loving, caring, shining bright star.

Bless you. You are loved!

I want to say ‘I love you’ to him even though I didn’t personally know him. Then I remember what Frank Natale used to say. When you tell someone that you love them you are actually saying that you love who you are when you are with them.

So, I say to Michael Jackson:
I love you for showing me how to love myself through your artistry and your essence.
Bless You. Be at Peace.

Collective Consciousness Intuition mind

What We can ALL do to help Iranians

The Iranian people are seeking a greater expression for their freedom. You and I can help them… now.

My personal belief is that the Source of the freedom that rests inside each of us is always seeking a greater expression. This fuels the desire for personal growth in many people.

My belief also lies in what the mystics have said for eons and what New Physics science is telling us today… that we are All One. We are all the same Quantum Energy vibrating at different frequencies. If this sounds far fetched find a current scientist and ask him or her.

So, what can you do?

We can all help the Iranian people… right now.

As much research shows, a certain number of practiced meditators (maybe the square root of .1% of the local population) will result in a significant decrease in violence and crime in that local area. In Washington D.C. that was a 25% decrease on a decent weather weekend.

Here is an idea for all of us to help to create this collective consciousness field to assist and support that greater expression of freedom. Their struggle is our struggle. We are All One in our most basic existence; the fact that we are made up from energy. This unites us.

AND this gives us tremendous power to support each other regardless of the measurement of distance between us. In this space of mind, i.e. meditation, there is no time and no space. We can connect with them always with our minds tuned to the channel of peace and freedom.

My proposal

Central Standard Time (Greenwich mean time – 6 hours)

6:45 to 7 am                     12:00 noon
5:45 to 6 pm                     10:30 to 11:00 pm

Each day pick one or more of these times when you can spend 2 minutes or up to 15 minutes. If these times do not work do the following when you can and email me another preferred time of day for everyone. e-mail to supportfreedom@mindtechnology.com.

1. Find a quiet and comfortable place to sit and get very still inside yourself .

2. If you are experienced at ‘going to level’ or meditating then do so. Otherwise put on some background, very passive and relaxing tones/music.

3. Take a few slow and deep breaths in through your nose, hold it for a moment then exhale slowly through your mouth; some like to purse their lips. Breathe deeply means breathing into your diaphragm and extending the stomach on an inhale.

4. Think nothing of your to-do’s and anything else as you seek to find that peace and sense of freedom that exists inside you. That is the exact same peace and sense of freedom that exists inside the Iranians as in ALL of US.

5. Gently shift your attention away from ‘monkey chatter’ where the logical mind wants to point your attention to your problems, to-do’s and busy-ness of life. Gently take control and shift your attention on peace and freedom.

Remember: Where your attention goes, your life flows.

[Now you have tuned your mind to peace and freedom.]

6. As you continue to focus on feeling and sensing that peace and freedom inside you… use your faculties of your genius mind, visualization and imagination, to visualize and imagine (using any 1 or all of your 5 physical senses + your emotions) any of the following ideas… and follow your own. e-mail me your ideas to add here.

Imagine the color and feel of the energies of peace and freedom. Find where that exists in you and imagine it flowing and stretching from you to others in your country and expanding over to the peoples in Iran. See them enveloped in these colors and the love and support that go wtih this.

For Silva graduates and others who have developed their imagination for this skill and others: Detect the awareness of anyone in the ruling people of Iran, the president, the supreme leader and the council. Send a vibrant color (some see it as blue/white, gold/white or white/white) of energy to assure them that peace and freedom resides in them, also and that it’s best to work with their people. Connect with them beneath their outer-power facade and connect with them also as a spiritual being having a human experience on this planet.

Imagine a good end result with them that includes something about the people of Iran having a government that reflects their shift in consciousness, that they are now feeling peace and freedome and their society is changing as a result. See the people happy.

No matter what you do, leave the people and the country with feelings of love and support.

If everyone is able to commit just 5 minutes at one of the times listed (or send me another time to include) daily and relax into this peace and freedom with the awareness that you are joining with many others.

Spread the word send this to others and tell them to join in.

Oh, and one more thing… when you tune your mind to peace and freedom to assist others you are experiencing it in yourself, also.

Peace, Freedom and Blessings to All

The Silva Method continues to wow! me

I know people who get my e-mails hear me touting the benefits and promoting these classes. What may not come across in this two-dimensional typewritten medium is the impact that my heart feels from my student’s successes. There is nothing in this life as rewarding as witnessing student’s burgeoning personal power and watching them make their lives better and better.

Here are three recent stories that just happened…

From 2 Fs to the Deans List
From 2 F's to the Dean's List

From a couple of F’s on report cards to the Dean’s List

This happened Monday. I want to acknowledge someone in college who was a B and C student with a couple of F’s who just found out that he was just named on the Dean’s List at his University. He took the Silva Method original BLS class where he learned the student skills that are now in the Silva Life System class. The very next term he went from C’s and B’s to B’s and an A. Now he is on the Dean’s List. He also tells me that he has found a joy in doing very well that was not there before. Major Congratulations Andrew, in Austin.!

The specific student skills of the many different life skills learned in the class include:

  • Improving comprehension, retention and recall of material read
  • Improving comprehension, retention and recall of material from a lecture
  • A unique 3-Pass Test-Taking method that allows the student to recall information that was at first forgotten while taking the test, even when you don’t have a clue

If you have read the best-selling Silva Mind Control book written by Jose Silva (I have copies), the founder and researcher of the Silva Method, you will know that this is the very origin of what is now known as the Silva Method. A couple of his children came home one day with some very bad grades. He asked them what was wrong. They said that they had studied and knew the information but got nervous while taking the test. From his research he knew that when you are in fear you do not have access to the part of the brain that has the information you have studied and already know. Thus he created a technique to train his children to de-stress and relax their mind and body… on cue while taking a test. This, plus he taught them how to ‘index’ learned material in the brain in a way to make it easier to recall and have superior comprehension. With these skills Jose’s children’s grades improved so well that the neighborhood parents had him train their children, whose grades promptly improved also.

The body's natural state is health

Healing occurs when there is the environment for the body’s natural health to come forth

When I was doing yard work I picked up a slab of old concrete which shattered in my hands, a piece of the concrete sliced my hand in the fatty part of the thumb below the knuckle. The cut was only about an inch across but it must have been deep because it splattered blood as it sliced me and blood was just pouring out. The first thing I thought was I was definitely going to need stitches. I went inside and ran the cut under water, cleaned it, and wrapped it in a paper towel and raised my arm up to try to stop the bleeding but the blood just kept pouring. I wanted to stop the bleeding so I calmed my mind and gave complete focus to the injury and told it to stop bleeding. Within 20 seconds the bleeding completely stopped and it wasn’t even wrapped in the paper towel.

After I got the bleeding stopped I sat down, went to level and visualized my injury healing. I pictured the open cut sealing up like a zip lock bag and then my hand being completely normal.  After meditating, I put a band aid on the cut and tried not to move or use that part of my hand for a few days. After 3 days I was able to use my thumb and hand again, not fearing opening back up the cut, and couple of days after that my hand showed almost no signs of being cut!

In the Silva Life System class we teach a hand levitation technique to enter the theta level of mind. In this technique we train you to develop Glove Anesthesia at the frequency of your biological intelligence.

How much does relaxation matter?
How much does relaxation matter?

A husband notices a more relaxed wife

At the Silva Graduate meeting this past Sunday someone told me that her husband told her that she is a more relaxed person in life. She then told me that she is not worrying about things like she did before and she is feeling more relaxed and trusting that things will turn out. Ever since she took the Silva Intuitive Mind training in April she has listened to the Long Relax exercise every night.                 Tami T., Austin, Texas

de-stress your mind and body
de-stress your mind and body

I tell every class to get this CD and listen to it at least once a week for a year. She chooses to listen to it every night and her husband is seeing the change in her way of managing life. Briefly I say to do this because every difficulty, problem or concern in life is at its base a tangle of stress that is in the thought process and/or is in the body. When it is in the body it is more likely to lead to disease since it is a dis-ease within your form. In the class I cover the science behind this extremely effective exercise.

This exercise is 35 minutes in length. A medical doctor who took the class last year told me that he put it on his iPod and listens to it when and where he finds the time. If anyone wants to get this Silva Method Long Relax CD that I recorded I will discount them to $17 including shipping to the contiguous 48 states. These retail for $17 + shipping and packaging costs. Click here for this special.

I have a tendency to keep talking about this but… you know, this all speaks for itself along with the millions of stories across the globe over the past decades.
