Brain health key to avoid memory loss & aging
E M O R Y LOSS is not an inevitable part of the aging process. What we know about the brain and its functioning has increased dramatically in the last decade or so. Although many people fear developing memory loss as they grow older—or struggle with brain fog in middle age—scientists are now discovering that ancient techniques for keeping our minds free from stressors complement modern ways of preventing brain diseases.
many other Americans? Their medicine men and women, or shamans, understood what Western medicine is just beginning to discover: that optimal brain health is achieved by eliminating toxins from the body, eating well, fasting, getting movement, and using the traditional practice of energy medicine.
In energy medicine, shamans use specific techniques to interact with a person’s luminous energy field (LEF) which encases the physical body and is encoded with information that affects Why do Native Americans how we live, age, and die. Like have a much lower incidence them, we can clear our energy of Alzheimer’s disease than field of dense patches of slow
moving energy, which developed as a result of stress and trauma.
FOODS AFFECT OUR BRAIN’S FUNCTIONING We can also use our minds, or thoughts, to train our brains to function better and release the physical, emotional and mental stressors that affect memory, mood, and mental acuity. Additionally, if we consume plants with ingredients that are neuroprotective, we shield our brains from the processes that lead to deterioration and disease.

There are several foods and supplements that foster brain health. A brain-healthy diet should be mostly plant-based and include good fats such as virgin olive oil, coconut oil, and fish oil from wild (not farmed) cold-water fish, such as salmon and sardines. Avoid dairy products and refined sugars. If you are gluten-intolerant or have celiac disease, avoid grains. Limit caffeine, sugars, and alcohol to reduce dependence on these stimulants. Avoid artificial flavors and colors, as well as processed foods including hydrogenated oils. Consider taking food supplements that promote brain health: DHA, alpha-lipoic acid, pterostilbene, sulforaphane,
curcumin from turmeric extract your way up to 45 minutes a (a spice used in curry), and green day. In addition, practice yoga tea extract. and stretch at least twice a week for 30 minutes a session.

Get eight hours sleep so your brain cells can repair themselves after the stress of the day.

Sit comfortably, focusing on your breath, as you inhale and exhale deeply and slowly. Bring into mind the image of the person who harmed you; feel the anger as you take in one long breath. Now, for five long breaths, superimpose the face of someone you love. Watch that face strengthen in clarity as the image of the one who hurt you fades away. Feel the emotions of love and clarity. Repeat often to clear your LEF of dark, heavy energy.

His new book, ONE SPIRIT MEDICINE: Ancient Ways to Ultimate Wellness, explains how our lifestyle choices can damage—or repair— our bodies at the cellular level. His groundbreaking remedy for modern maladies like obesity, Alzheimer’s, depression, diabetes, heart disease, and others, combines a unique mix of leading-edge nutrition, neuroscience and ancient shamanic healing practices.
The Power of Pranic Healing
veryone has the inna te ability to heal and relieve pain... All that is needed is a certain amount of concentration, determination and most of all the willingness to heal.” —Healing Master Choa Kok Sui PRANIC HEALING IS a highly developed system of energy medicine that utilizes prana to balance, harmonize, and transform the body’s energy processes. It uniquely focuses upon first cleansing diseased energies from the affected energy centers/diseased organs and then energizing them with
clean prana that allows dramatic healing to be accomplished. MCKS’s cleansing technique prevents the healing crisis which happens when the body tries to expel diseased energies which have been pushed further into the client’s system. Another powerful Pranic Healing tool is the “water pump” approach which allows for healers to tap into the vast ocean of cosmic energy. By knowing how to pull in these energies and then project them to the subject, we can heal others without draining our own life force. These, as well as energetic contamination, are a healer’s greatest hurtles. Absorbing diseased energies while healing a client happens on all levels, etheric, astral, mental,
physical, and spiritual levels. There are no hazmat suits for this yet! Healing hygiene is very important for the healer and future clients and involves purification of the space and careful disposal of diseased energies during the healing session. These basic Pranic Healing protocols equal healthy, happy healers and clients for many years to come. How can you release and heal the stuck emotional energies which are holding you back? Do you struggle with negative emotions of shame, unworthiness, or lack confidence? Learn to connect with your true essence, release emotional blockages, and step into joy! Achieve a sense of inner freedom through a combination of intuitive guidance,

Time’s Illusion: Miracles, Dreams & Finding My True A personal journey of experience: a journey of changed thinking about the world around me and the greater reality we all share. Excerpt from Chapter Nine: Sickness and Health
S OUR HEALTH not tied to thoughts of well-being? If the world is only a thought, then of course everything in it is also just a thought, including my body. If my body is only a coming together of thought, of some type of energy, then that energy can be controlled by my mind here—or it can be let go from what I thought of as my mind and essentially be led instead by the Mind, the Holy Spirit, or the combined One I know I am a part of. My mind here had been my
whole experience here, and my mind held a belief system that told me the world is real and that I could be affected by all the happenstance and insanity of it. If I believed in this world, I believed I could die. If I continued to hold that belief, events of the world would control me, therefore, I would have no control over whether I was sick or healthy. I had thoughts that, because a family member had a certain ailment at a certain age, then I could eventually have the same ailment, or that I was at the whim of disease that could strike at any time and I would be powerless to prevent or do anything about it. None of that could be true.
My body is an energy that a thought had created, and conversely, a thought can direct, lead or change, in any way. My body is only a vehicle to change my thinking. The plan now was for the body I was in to serve its purpose and get me Home by giving me time, as I perceived it, to get there. Also, by knowing I was already Home because of the non-linear reality of time, I can let the true purpose of my body fulfill itself in complete health. My body’s purpose will be shown to me by something outside of myself: My Helper, the Holy Spirit. The only block to letting all these things occur in my life is
BY CAREY JONES
Reality ego, whose vested purpose is to keep me here. If I believe in the body, the ego will keep me rooted in it. If I believe I am not a body, then the ego has no power and the true nature of what I am will infuse its energy with complete perfection to fulfill my real purpose.
