Kirsten Proffit, Manda Mosher, and Aubrey Richmond. All are great and dedicated musicians, each with accomplished and celebrated solo careers under way. That is, until Calico brought them together. As powerful as each is individually, an undeniable magic occurs when all three come together. It’s at the heart of their debut album, Rancho California, which is replete with singularly strong songwriting chops, rich harmonies, and a pervasive Americana passion. Like the expansive spirit of Laurel Canyon that spawned so many famous bands and artists, now comes this new spirit, rooted in the vast valleys and canyons of L.A. CALICO the band is a female Americana/ California Country trio comprised of award winning singer/songwriters and multi-instrumentalists. The band has been consistently touring the West Coast, Pacific Northwest, and Southwest regions since forming in early 2013. CALICO the band Has Been Featured on the ABC hit TV show Nashville & NBC’s The Night Shift. The melodically-hypnotic country trio from the San Fernando Valley, CALICO the band, who not only shook the stage at last year’s Stagecoach Festival and whose music has been featured on the smash ABC TV show, Nashville as well as NBC’s The Night Shift, proudly released their debut album, RANCHO CALIFORNIA via California Country Records.

We love to carry on the traditions of country, seen through a vibrant, new lens.”
CALICO stands for California Country – a musical genre haunted by Western ghosts of the past, but gentle with modern spirits too. It’s about timeless roots music; it’s about voices singing in harmony. This unique blends their three

Michael-Ann started her musical journey at an early age. Her best memories are from visiting her friend’s musical family in the Ozarks of Missouri. It was there she learned to play guitar with strings 1/2” off the fret... a painful but rewarding experience. She would go every weekend and savor the flavor of down-home hospitality and song. Each weekend included a musical performance with various members of the extended family. She then decided she wanted to dip her toes in the waters of Nashville. Several record labels were interested in her music, but she chose to travel overseas first, to broaden her life experience. Since returning to the States, she has been involved with various productions including New York’s “Woody Guthrie’s American Song” (a touring show about the life of Woody Guthrie), and has had her original music featured in the play “Sweet Bye and Bye”.
Now living in Los Angeles, Michael Ann has been seen singing with the likes of Ricky Skaggs, The Rainmakers, and the Ravens, and has been heard on several music compilations as well. She has opened for Paula Nelson in Kansas City, Blake Shelton, and most recently for Joan Osborne, Don McLean, Mark Chesnutt, Kenny Rogers, Jeff Bridges, Eddie Money, Judy Collins and Richie Furay. She has performed with her band at various clubs including The Coach House, The Saban Theater, Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center, The Canyon Club, The Hotel Cafe, The Viper Room, Ranch Party, Room 5, Genghis Cohen, and Three of Clubs. Her new release Heavy Load is already receiving airplay on several radio stations nationally and internationally. Stay tuned for more exciting developments in the works!

here are moments in life when something happens, and life as you know it completely alters, life transforms in an instant. That moment for Erin Fall Haskell was 19 years ago. She was holding her stillborn son in her arms, just after giving birth to him. “Tears were streaming down my face as I looked at his beautiful body and realized his body was still there, but he wasn’t. One can conceptually understand that we are not these bodies, but I got it on an entirely different level, my entire world crumbled, delivering me to spiritual revelation.” This sent her on an intense spiritual quest of learning how to live and embody the truths that had been revealed. “To know the truth and to live the truth, are two very different things.” This took her around the world, studying, researching and doing an array of spiritual process and modalities, bringing her full circle, giving back the gifts of her journey. Erin is an Author, Speaker, Divinity Worker, Researcher and Non-Denominational Minister, referring to all philosophies, religions and spiritual practices. She is also trained in Maieutics, a Greek Oracle Process, by which she assists others to birth their truth. Furthermore, she has her 9 rites in Shamanism and is a teacher of the Laws of the Universe, Divine Principle and Consciousness. Claiming her birthright of prosperity and abundance, she is a self-made millionaire, entrepreneur, mother, and active philanthropist. Her time is primarily spent interviewing leaders and developing programs to pave the path for the thriving Divine Entrepreneurs. She has worked with a broad range of clients, everything from top Celebrities, Grammy winners, single moms, CEO’s to homeless, facilitating seminars, workshops, circle ceremonies and spiritual retreats. Bottom line, she attributes her happiness and fulfillment to ‘Divine Truth’, which is not just knowing the truth, but living your Unique Divine Expression of the truth… “May living your truth set you free.” Love, e

15 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ April 2015
Feng Shui is a systematic approach on a physical level in placing a human being on the doorstep pathway to their individual portal connection with the living Universe, Human energy to Universal energy. Itâ€™s an ancient tradition with applications for a modern era which has the capacity to empower mankind at an individual and collective level in accessing the divine universal consciousness. You may know Feng Shui as the placement of furniture or creating balance and harmony, no no no, itâ€™s the placement of a human, thus allowing a shift in an individual mindset at their own pace to grasp the true understanding of self (being) with action. How is this wild statement accomplished, why through change, for Feng Shui is an invitation to opportunity. For years we have had this misunderstanding of Feng Shui being what it is not. The confusion rises from the large number of books, the various teachings and the different schools. Deciding which is better/greater than the other, has only added confusion to the amazing essence held within its teachings. The false idea that it is all common sense, a fade or a religion never ceases to amaze. If you want to study Feng Shui the question would arise, which school/teacher should I choose, the Traditional, the Classical or maybe the Imperial. Then there is The Black Sect Tantric School which is a mixture/ collection of many different doctrines, traditions, Buddhism and philosophies. This Sect originally came from India, Tibet, China, and now America, to which Feng Shui became one of those added components. All Feng Shui schools have their designated purpose. All schools have their foundations based on the understanding of Yin and Yang and the five elements, Earth, Metal, Water, Wood and Fire. So how do we tackle this Feng Shui system, to know of its values, the benefits it holds for mankind, or if it even works? The information 16 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM â™Ľ April 2015
I am about to share comes from experience, teaching, training and as a continuing student of 17 years, consulting in seven countries including for the home and businesses, to over $100M. Feng Shui firstly is all about our energetic relationship / connection to our personal-energies. This understanding of self exists in our individual Life Chart. If we overlook this single component, then how are we to make any connection to the self and to that which exists outside of us? Secondly, energy is also about how our beingness, yours and my vibrational frequency connects to the universes vibrational frequencies. Is it even possible to conceive that we are a single energy, when we fully well know nothing exists on its own? At birth our first breath draws in the many universal energies present at that moment in time. We are introduced/connected at birth to the Universe, which now is added to that which we bring forth from our parents. This is now the seed of who and what we are capable of being in this world. External influences, parents, place of birth, education, relationships, reasoning blame and survival mechanisms combine with us and here we are 2015
The Art of Feng Shui comes from a consultant’s depth and abilities, based on their level of experiences to define where and when to position an individual into their path of current active universal frequencies. Connections are derived from an in-depth foundation on their knowledge/ teachings about the Science of Feng Shui. Is one school better than another? No, all schools have their own applications. They function in a sequence similar to our education system, grade 1 and onwards. When a situation cannot be resolved in one school then we move into another school of thought to find the solution. All schools collaborate with one another to create sustainable wholeness! Each school was created by a different scholar over many centuries as they evolved in their understanding of the connection between Man, Earth and the Universe.

Spiritual Growth Checkpoint
Meditating with Clear Quartz By Sherri Cortland
18 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM â™Ľ April 2015
I’m a big fan of merging our energy with the energies of different crystals and stones during meditation. Yet there are so many powerful stones and crystals to choose from, how do we know where to start? When someone asks me for a crystal recommendation, I always say, ‘Start with clear quartz,’ and here’s why: clear quartz vibrates clear white light, which contains all other colors, and so, clear quartz packs a huge vibrational bang into one single crystal. In fact, when I climbed Bell Mountain in Sedona, I brought along twenty clear quartz crystals so I could charge them in the pulsating energy of that powerful vortex for my family and friends. Here are some interesting facts about clear quartz that I first learned many years ago when I used Katrina Raphael’s Crystal Enlightenment, Volume One to begin my study of crystals and stones: • To the awakened mind, clear quartz crys tals are like beacons that will add more light and positive energy to be used in their lives and integrated onto the Earth. • Clear quartz is like a pyramid in that they channel high frequency energy onto the physical Earth plane. • They reflect pure white light that can be channeled into daily thoughts, feelings, words, and actions. And because clear quartz (also called crystal quartz) radiates all the colors of the spectrum, it’s the ultimate stone when it comes to metaphysical and healing properties: • Mystical Properties: it harmonizes and balances, enhances energy and thoughts, purifies the spiritual, mental and physical, and facilitates communication with Spirit. • Healing Properties: it stimulates the immune system, brings the body into balance, cleanses and enhances the organs and subtle bodies, and acts as a deep 20 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ April 2015
soul cleanser, connecting the physical dimension with the mind. ► Are you ready to give meditating with clear quartz a try? To help you get started, here’s a simple yet powerful exercise that I first started doing a couple of years ago when my friend, the crystal healer Paige Hall Ferraro, shared it with me: ►Find some peaceful music for your meditation. I always recommend this because crystals can actually absorb and hold the etheric message of the music you listen to as you work with your crystal (s). Therefore, if you meditate with that crystal often, it will raise your vibration even higher. ►Set your intention for the meditation with love. When we meditate it’s so important to let go and allow ourselves to be open to simply being one with our crystal. A positive intention that I use often is to ask my crystal to “Please show me what I need to know for the highest and best of all concerned and help me to feel, see, or hear any messages that you have to share.” ►Sit comfortably in a dimly lit room where you won’t be disturbed. Lighting a candle creates a relaxing atmosphere and is helpful when meditating with crystals. ►With your music turned on, place your crystal loosely in your hand and take several deep breaths--continuing to breathe gently until you are relaxed. ►When you are relaxed, you can open your eyes and look deeply into your crystal. Simply gaze at your crystal and all of its angles, and imagine yourself inside the crystal and what that might feel like to you. ►When you have immersed all of your senses with your crystal, continue to breathe gently and close your eyes. Allow the peace and amazement you experienced from your crystal to take you into a deep, relaxed state of being.
►You might feel a little tingly from the crystal’s vibration…just continue breathing, being at one with your crystal. ►You can open your eyes when you are ready (suggested meditation time is 15 minutes to start) and bring your focus back to your crystal. You will most likely feel peaceful, yet energized. Take your hands away from the crystal now, to disconnect from its energy. ►Be sure to take a moment to thank your crystal for its assistance…and place the crystal on the floor or table next to you. ►Stand up and stretch. Let me close this month’s column with this tip: When a clear quartz point is placed with the point facing away from you, it draws the energy outward. When the point is placed towards you, the energy is drawn towards you. Namaste.

►Continue to breathe gently with your crystal held loosely in your hand, and imagine this crystal is surrounding your entire being, until you feel one with the crystal. You might notice feelings of peace and serenity, or receive a message of some kind from the crystal. Perhaps it guides you to be on a better diet, or you may see certain colors; whatever it is, simply notice and keep it in your memory.

We React, Based On Our
Paradigm of the World by Jeremy McDonald
A life of reaction is a life of sla One must fight for a lif
What is mind-blowing to me, is the fact that words can be so twisted! In corporate America, I taught people based on the old study, that words were only seven percent of the communication process between all of us. Nonetheless, it still puzzles me how much we twist around words. This is because we live in our own paradigm. What is a paradigm? In short, it is how we see the world based on our expe22

riences and environment. A good majority of our paradigms are created by what happened to us and how we received what happened. Every experience we had in our lives developed a part of our paradigm, and in essence, created programming within us. Based on our experiences and our anticipation of the future, we create how we live in the present.
avery, intellectually and spiritually. fe of action, not reaction.
The massive problem which happens, is we become caught-up in our paradigms. We get enslaved by the dogma which comes from the idea our paradigm is the one truth and the only truth! Therefore, what happens is one person will say something, intending to mean one thing, but the receiver of the message will totally take that message the wrong way. The real problem is the fact most people do not speak up about their feelings or how they understood the message received, so they never have a sense of clarity gained from that message. If they heard the message differently than it was meant and they were offended by it, then they would have that inside themselves and allow it to fester. The sad part is, the person that sent the message may have no idea that it is bothering their friend. We are two people now living without clear lines of communication. This type of stuff goes on all the time. The greatest gift we can give ourselves is just share how we feel and speak up! Recently, I had a huge moment of clarity when I posted this phrase on my Facebook, “Anything that bothers you is your issue.” I got this from a book Titled The 55 Concepts by Michael Cavallaro. A few minutes after posting, a friend posted, “This statement is not entirely accurate. In a relationship, if two people are unwilling to work with one another, or only one person is willing to put in the effort in a relationship, then it becomes both of their problems.” I remember just sitting for a minute processing what my friend said. It was not in anger or shock, and there was no reaction or judgment inside of me. I was more surprised at what was going on inside of me. I heard in my mind, “My friend is in his story as we all are in some form of our story.” Then it hit me! We interpret words based on our perception of the words. As I stated before, we get this by our experiences or non-experiences of the words. In our culture, we are changing words into slang and change our languages around several times.
23 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ April 2015
Just look at the English language today in comparison to two hundred years ago and from state to state; words have different meanings and different ways they are said. It is all based on environment and culture! Instead of reacting or judging my friend, I explained my understanding of what he said, “If I was in a relationship, and my partner did something to hurt me,I would immediately analyze why it hurt me. define my happiness, not another person’s. By allowing them to hurt me and not saying anything, I am allowing it to happen inside of me. More than likely, they are walking away without even realizing what they have said or did, or have moved on from what was said or done. Once I understood my own reaction, I would probably still say something to my partner for me, not them, to get my truth out. By understanding myself first, I take the time not only to have a greater understanding of myself, but also to have a richer relationship with myself.” Once I explained this, my friend said he understood what I was saying now, and we moved on from this conversation. Knowing that people live life based on their paradigm or personal reality had me pondering. I realized and remembered all the times I reacted in a way that kept me from seeing someone else’s point of view. I programmed myself based on the stimuli around me. If someone hurt me before, and a similar experience came up again in my life, I would have a similar reaction like the response before. I might even react for fear of getting hurt again. The same might happen based on things I enjoyed, or pleasurable things, and I might constantly look for that pleasure again when I did not get what I was looking for. I might fall into a depression from not getting something based on my expectations.
can utilize the times we are not awake as an area of opportunity! Remember, the word enlightenment means the end of pain and suffering. The “Light” part is where we shine our light and see clearly, therefore are awake. So in areas we are not awake we are not able to see clearly. Therefore; we are not only living in our paradigm, we are stuck in our paradigm. This is what the vast majority of people are doing in life, not living in an awakened state. They are living in an ocean of their reactions happening deep inside themselves and not understanding truly what is going on within themselves. Some do not even know things are hurting them until one day something triggers the built up anxiety going on within their bodies. Once this happens, years and years of not speaking our truth, or living our truth, swell up and burst out onto the world. This is largely because most of us try to hide what we do not like about ourselves. We do not talk about the things we have done which people may look at and judge us. This area of our lives is what Carl Jung referred to as our shadow. In this area of our lives, we are not able to see these things because they are hidden deep within an area we do not want anyone to see, including allowing ourselves to see. A good story to explain our shadow is the Sumerian myth of Inanna, Queen of the Heavens.
Her descent into the underworld explains to us she had to cross through seven gates to enter into the underworld to see her older sister Ereshkigal, the Queen of the underworld. When she arrived at each gate, she had to remove a piece of her royal garments, such as her crown or royal robe. Eventually she reached the throne room of her enraged sister, and is killed by her sister’s subjects. She is stripped These things happen repeatedly in our lives, of all her material possessions. She eventually but we have no idea it is happening because is saved from her situation and rises up from we are living within our individual paradigm; the underworld with a greater understanding of the parts of our lives, which we are not awake herself. in. We are self-aware when we are awake. We 24 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥
She realizes that her sister Ereshkigal is the dark side of herself (shadow side of herself). She constantly rejected and suppressed within herself while she was trying to show the world the goodness that she wanted to project onto the world. This caused her to suppress a great piece of herself and in turn made herself stagnant inside of herself. The result was a part of her that was so enraged, when facing the neglect and stress that she had buried deep within herself, it killed her. What is important to take note of is, she shed her worldly possessions, which gave her entitlement of her royal titles and level. The pureness of how she approached her descent, allowed her to rise up out of her shadow, greatly aware of what she did to herself. She was able to come back into oneness with all of herself and discover deeper parts of herself she had not been previously aware of. The shadow has deep thoughts within us, and continues the programs we keep imprisoned in our paradigm. We have this idea of impressing the world and keeping an image of what we want others to see, instead of our truth, and being true to ourselves. In reality, your body knows when you are not being true to you, and as a result, you are hurting yourself and causing unnecessary stress deep within your body. In Innana’s story, the existence of the Goddess Innana is not as important as the lesson this myth brings us. I talked about this story because it relates very closely to many of our lives. We have to ask ourselves many questions, in order to really discover the clarity of how much we are not looking at, and paying attention to, our shadow. Ask yourself, “Have I ever been upset with someone but never said anything because I was afraid of the consequences or being judged? Have I ever hid how I felt about a situation or subject because I was afraid of rejection?” Guess who rejected my opinion first? You guessed it right!
It was me! Before I ever got the words out of your mouth, I judged it and did not think it to be valid enough to say, therefore, rejecting, and judging myself! If I were truly confident in who I was and did say something, I would know with all the confidence in the world that my views were just as valid as anyone else’s. I would also be open to other views and seeing other perspectives. This is how we grow, by opening our minds to someone else’s wisdom and sharing ours. When we hide our feelings or our views, we are preventing this growth potential from happening between souls. In some cases, it is appropriate not to say anything because you know people have to learn their own lessons. We are talking about disagreements or problems, and also talking about general conversations. I spent a great deal of years not participating in regular conversations because I was afraid I would look stupid to others. Well, guess who thought I was stupid? Me! The real vicious cycle, is my shyness or fears, which kept people from getting to know me as a person. Even though I had friends, I still felt very lonely and misunderstood because I did not understand myself. Once I realized my voice mattered and it mattered to me, all my feelings of loneliness subsided. Not only did I feel smart, but very smart, because I was no longer ignoring my voice and myself. I overcame most of my fears by making myself speak, even when I was unsure. Yes as I have explained in previous chapters, I had a great deal of resistance to what I said at times. At times, friends would get very mad because instead of always being in alignment with them, or in agreement with them, I would state my views. There were a great number of people upset. Some friendships ended because they felt I judged what they believed.
25 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ April 2015
The reality is I was changing, and my friends and I were growing apart. It taught me sometimes people (souls) come into our lives for a short amount of time. Sometimes people come back into our lives. Throughout our lives, people come and go in divine timing and divine order. Our resistance to people leaving comes from the fear of being alone, or not being accepted, or being branded as outcasts by society. The important part we are missing is a solid relationship with our Soul changes everything. This very relationship starts to recreate our paradigm from being a reactive victim mind to a wholeness-loving mind. Why does this happen? I have explained previously, your body is a part of all consciousness, but it also has a consciousness. Your body is one big bag of thoughts and emotions! It is thinking and reacting to stimuli at all times! Our goal is to continue developing a deep relationship with our body and to stop denying the truth. Get back into balance with your body. In order to get back into wholeness you have to face yourself. Just like Innana, you have to go deep into your shadow. This is where you will find the programs that are going on deep within you, and make you react to the stimuli around you. When you feel you are not being listened to, look in the mirror and ask, “Where am I not listening to myself? Where am I not paying attention to what my body, mind, or spirit are trying to tell me?” This gives you the opportunity to allow your thoughts to flow and start to hear what your soul is trying to communicate with you. The most important part is creating a trust and love within yourself and by doing so your body, mind and spirit begin to work in unity. This creates a flow within your body and brings the stagnant “Qi” back into flow within the body.

The Lemon Cleanse Diet plan also referred to as the best juice cleanse, was developed by the late Stanley Burroughs as a detoxification and fasting program. Originally intended to rid the body of toxins and internal wastes brought on by “improper diet plan, lack of exercise, and negative mental attitude,” it’s now also touted as a fast excess weight loss strategy. 28 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ April 2015

Amravati: Lord Buddha, I and a lot of other human beings, I sus¬pect, find the concept of the deep silence within the eternal void not an attractive concept, particularly when I am in an ordinary state of con¬sciousness. In meditation or healing, when I am in an altered state of consciousness, it seems quite blissful and something that I do want. Please comment on this to shed some light on how I can shift this resistance. Amravatiji, there is no “I” doing anything (or Amravati doing anything). It just appears to be so. The deep void, the deep silence is not a “concept” dear; it is your truest inner nature and a part of the nature of reality. All manifest existence, as I have said before, appears to spring forth from the unmanifest. All manifest reality is ultimately within the realm of maya or grand illusion. Yes I know that it appears to be very real to you, but so is a film very real in its appearance when one is mesmerized by it. And yet when the film is over, the movie screen is not burned by the great fire that occurred during the final scene of the film. The whole of this book, dear ones, has been about giving up the separation between the real and the unreal. Giving up separation in its totality. The silence that you find during deep states of meditation is much closer to your true nature than the so-called personality self. The mind wishes to cling to the personality self (no matter how much it suffers) as separate and real.
and infinitely limitless possibilities of who you are, is a part of the grand illusion of 3D maya. It is like your fairy tale of the frog re-remembering that it is a prince, or the caterpillar dying to become a beautiful butterfly that can fly and experience many worlds, multifarious realms. It is like being stuck on watching the same film, no matter how much you like it, again, and again and again. You are not the film; you are the screen on which the film and many other films may be projected. You are the director, actor, pro¬ducer and scriptwriter of many possibilities and probabilities, where from the infinite you may choose to don a finite series of multidi¬mensional selves. Meditating on the organic wholeness of who you are, will give you a deep understanding of your true nature. As many of your saints and avatars have shown you, this death of the small “I” is a moment of supreme rebirth into a vast field of unmanifest potentiality. It is blissful, it is ecstatic, it is whole and complete and ultimately it just is. You cannot understand all of this with the mind. And even if you do, you cannot experience it. You have to begin to watch and to detach and be brave, and that only happens if you are truly fed up with your reality as you know it.

within the strengthening of the 2nd path, all separation also dissolves, all struggle dissolves, the little “I” dissolves and everything becomes In Lakesh. Mastery of this state leads to a total dissolving of the separate personality self, and then one moves and dances as part of creation with no pain—just ecstatic bliss, and beyond that supreme silence, supreme being. You Amravati have had a deep experiential understanding of this dissolving of the personality into the ecstasy and silence of the expanded field of oneness. when sitting with your sister’s body after she had passed, you witnessed your sister’s spirit leaving her body and being released and flying like a dove to the sun, in total freedom. That feeling as you remember well, was one of peace, one of stillness, one of wholeness and one of silence. Amravati: Thank you Lord Buddha for reminding me of that supremely blissful experience which has once again moved me very deeply. Dear one, we fill you with the energy of courage and grace on your path. we do this for all of humanity as well here now. Give us, the Ascended Masters, your fear and allow this dissolving of limita¬tion and strife. As the great Zen teaching teaches: Die before you die. why wait until the actual demise of this body? All your saints achieved a supreme state of bliss and silence by dying to their lower selves completely while they were still alive. If you cling to a glass full of muddy water, how can we fill your glass with holy nectar? It is okay to be a glass of muddy water, and in its true acceptance comes a transcendence and the courage to let go so that the celestial infinite truth can pour in to the vessel of your soul to match the intrinsic nature of your Atma (soul).

Ritual Begets Relationship
by Bonnie Glass-Coffin PhD & don Oscar Miro-Quesada
To harness the spiritual power of creation, as did our ancestral peoples, we need to return to a deep understanding of how sacred relationship works. “Feed the earth first and then you will have the strength to go out on the healing path,” don Benito taught me. The more loving the energy that we can generate as we attend to these earth-honoring ceremonies, the quicker the transmutation of our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies occurs.
our beloved Pachamama to feel more comfortable revealing themselves to nurture and support us. This is the nature of ayni.
Through ritual action we restore harmonious relationships both “within and without,” for these are the same. By focusing on service to our beloved Earth mother, we open ourselves to receive love and comfort from powers that are far older and wiser than is any human relative. As don Benito told me, “These apus, these mountain The core of what don Benito taught lords have been around a very me, even as I was struggling with long time. They’ve seen people my own insecurities, is this: By do- come and go for millennia. They ing earth-healing rites and ceremo- have witnessed many, many nies, we reestablish a conscious, things.

This encourages all the place and they will sustain you. the conscious beings who inhabit That’s how they work.” 35 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ April 2015
It is not uncommon to suffer because our primary caregivers were unable to instill the deep sense of worth, trust, and belonging that every being deserves to feel. Yet by engaging in ritual practices that call upon our Mother Earth, we can finally quiet the erroneous messages of loathing and lack we internalized as children. We can separate ourselves from the negative stories we were told that we have internalized. Through ritual, we can recognize our essential nature as we deepen our honoring relationships with the natural world. You see, as we participate in actions of kindness and service to the mother of us all, we wrap ourselves in gratitude. We receive as we give. We reclaim our intrinsic worth. We no longer need validation, nor do we need to fear rejection. Healing is as simple as this: As we walk in beauty, we are beauty. Through participation in earth-honoring ceremonies we are able to shift from fear to love, from desire to grateful acceptance of “what is,” and from separation to wholeness. Through ritual offerings of gratitude, we beget new relationships of love, care, and compassion with ourselves, with others, and with the world. As we reclaim the deep understanding of our birthright, we naturally pay it forward into the world. Thus, ritual begets relationship and sanctifies a new pattern of being. As we embody the principle of ayni in All Our Relations, we align with the magnificence of who we truly are.
Vedic peoples as well as the ancestral civilizations of the Americas were all attuned to this truth. Ritual action begets relationship, and this right action heals even the deepest wounds. As we reenact the earth-honoring rituals in ways akin to what they did, we can lovingly influence the emergence of a global reality in which we want to live. Thoughts, words, deeds—these are the tools we have been given to restore harmony in the world. Yet when right thought and right speech is impossible to project because of how we feel about ourselves, ritual action is the surest way to reclaim our deepest knowing of our worth. Don Benito showed me this through his gentle example. The ritual gesture of composing graceful ceremony is the way we re-member ourselves as an interdependent strand within the sacred web of life. This is the way we bring beauty into our hearts. It is how we open our hearts fully to love. This was don Benito’s greatest teaching of all.
This wisdom of teaching love by the way we live in sacred reciprocity is the ritual foundation of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition. As Mesaa carriers—as practitioners of this tradition—we recognize that we are an integral part of the intricate web of interdependence that powers physical and spiritual worlds. In these rituals, we honor all the beings with whom we share this plane, this space/time, this consciousness, what Quechua speakers call pacha. Through these ritual arts, we come into deeper This is how all spiritually attuned civili- awareness that our right action heals zations on this planet have lived. The the world.

As we compose our rituals, we re-member our interdependence with the ground below, the sky above, the inner world of
our deepest feelings as well as outer worlds of thought, word, and action. Through artfully structuring the sacred space of our mesa-grounds as well as gracefully restructuring cosmic order through our actions, we cocreate a conscious “turning over”—a kuti—of the way relationship between spirit and matter is understood. As we become more adept in our relationship with the shamanic powers and forces revealed through our Pachakuti Mesa ground, we also contribute to the prophesied completion of the current pachakuti that my ancestors spoke of. We reclaim our role as co-creators of the New Earth. One might say that the Pachakuti Mesa is a reflection of both our highest selves and our fondest dreams for the world. As the magic of the Pachakuti Mesa is witnessed, appreciated, and harnessed, our soul remembers, spirit awakens, heart leaps, mind knows, and body follows. Our wholeness is remembered and sacred relationship is restored.

Megalithic Structures Around the World
by Rico Paganini
38 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM â™Ľ April 2015
Who Built Them? Perfectly shaped megaliths are characteristic of archaic structures. Giza, with its great pyramids and its many underground complexes, was the center of the Egyptian—if not the global—megalithic culture. All the textbooks, encyclopedias and scientific journals state as a fact that the pyramids in Giza were built by the Pharaohs Cheops, Chephren and Mykerinos. Lay-persons and Egyptology students alike tend to be astonished when they realize how weak the alleged proof for this theory is. The Pharaohs Cheops, Che- phren and Mykerinos never asserted in any texts that they built the pyramids. This topic is never addressed anywhere throughout the entire body of written Egyptian history. This all shows how careful one must be about attributing the building of the Great Pyramids of Giza to the Pharaohs, who never claimed to have done so and who indirectly refute this claim through their own silence.
ill-conceived, because there simply is no solid evidence for it. On the other hand, scientific proof does exist to support the theory that both the Sphinx and the Valley Temple are 8,000–12,000 years old. This was in the mythi- cal period that is mentioned in ancient Egyptian tales handed down from genera- tion to generation, in which the Land of the Nile was ruled during the First Epoch by the gods or God-Kings, called the Nether (written ntr), and during the Second Epoch by the Shemsu-Hor (written shmsw hr), known as the Followers of Horus. It is also possible that the original complex, constructed with limestone blocks 15,000 years ago or more, was built by the Nether, and following a cataclysmic phase including centuries of massive flooding, a new epoch began in which the Shemsu-Hor renovated the original complex with their granite-wall technology. Apparently, both the Nether and the ShemsuHor mastered the art of transporting great weights and working with stone.
The Egyptologists’ arguments used to shore up their theory of the Pharaohs as the builders of the megalithic structures at Giza (the pyramids, Sphinx, Valley Temple, and so on) simply do not hold water. They arise from a preconceived worldview to which all previous discoveries have been subjected. However, if one frees oneself from this narrow point of view, then it becomes clear that there are other explana- tions for these magnificent structures that do better justice to the facts. The Egyptian megalithic culture holds many mysteries and an even greater num- ber of secrets. Over the course of millennia, tombs were built at the holy mega- lithic sites—including Giza, Saqqara and Abydos—by an array of kings, priests and noblemen, resulting in enormous cemeteries, or necropolises. However, to draw the conclusion that the aboveground and belowground megalithic structures were planned and built as burial places is 39 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ April 2015
In various locations in Giza, there remain traces of several phases of building from times extending long before our written historical record. If it is true that the Egyptians in Cheops’s day had perfectly mastered construction with granite, then certainly the following generation would have possessed at least partial knowledge of their techniques. These later pyramids made of bricks are clearly built with far less quality and skill than that of the Great Pyramids of Giza. A discovery and description of the early history of humankind cannot be limited to a single, mythical, prototypical culture, but must be viewed as a succession of various older civilizations that possessed technologies and knowledge that are unknown to us today. Nevertheless, Egyptologists today consider it common knowledge that the Pharaohs were capable of performing feats of engineering and construction that would seem absurd even by modern-day standards an assumption made apparently because they had ample time and money and nothing better to do.
in Lebanon; sites in Greece such as the Athenian Acropolis; Stonehenge in England; the Tarx- ien temple complex in Malta; countless pyramids and complexes in South America, including Sacsayhuamán, Machu Picchu and Ollantaytambo; Eas- ter Island; the stepped pyramid in Tanjore, India; and the Bhimpul monolith in Tibet, to name a few.
Our findings point in an entirely different direction. As we demonstrated in the Germanpublished book The Giza Wall, there are examples of megalithic precision construction from a time long past throughout the world. But who were these archaic master builders who created works that are hardly possible with the latest technology available today? Could it be that there has been one advanced civilization after another on the Earth?
The facts and circumstances surrounding these megalithic structures lead to the recognition that are all related. This can be clearly seen by observing a few fun- damental characteristics that all these complexes share:
Our history teachers have ruled out this possi- bility. All traces of humanity from past cultural epochs have been explained away so that they fit into the official version, even when such explana- tions become absurd. The assumption that the megalithic complexes in Egypt—none of which bear an inscription— were built merely upon the whim of monomaniacal, bored Pharaohs flies in the face of the fact that examples of the same mysterious building technology are found throughout the world: the Baalbek temple complex
40 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ April 2015
What all these megalithic structures have in common is that they never could have been built to anything near this level of perfection with the muscle power and tools available at the time of their construction. They must have been created using archaic methods that were lost along with the fall of the respec- tive cultures. Traces of these ancient, now anonymous structures from a time before our conventional historical record can be found on all continents. What makes Giza so significant is that here there are creations and artifacts of that prehistoric period—the legacy of these ancient cultures.
• The building materials used include extraordi narily large stone blocks. • There are elements with a polygonal shape. • There are no inscriptions. • There is nothing to indicate who built them. Several prime examples of megalithic structures and complexes are presented on the following pages. Several of them lie on one of the Earth’s seven main or even supplemental power points. When researching the ancient megalithic structures, it is essential to bear in mind that the continents and their present locations are no longer in the same positions as they were in ancient times.
Some are now found beneath the ocean, whereas others have been elevated high up into mountains as a result of continental drift. Nevertheless, the following examples that we have compiled from Europe, South America and the Pacific suffice to make the connections more than apparent:
Egypt? The quarry workers of the day—whomever they might have been—left interesting traces behind them in the granite quarry, which give us an impression of their working methods. This is especially obvious with the Unfinished Obelisk found in Aswan, which evokes far more questions than it provides answers.
• • • • • • •
The Unfinished Obelisk is 43 meters long, 4.2 meters wide and 2.5 meters high, resulting in a weight of 1,200 tons. Confusion is caused not only by this enor- mous weight, but also by the method by which the obelisk was hewn out of the surrounding stone. This enormous block had been cut out of the surrounding rock from above, from behind, from the front and along both sides, and only remains attached on the bottom side.

The final step, which never took place, would have been to saw it off from below to detach it from the surrounding rock. Yet the trenches excavated along both sides extending along the Unfinished Obelisk are just one meter wide
41 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ April 2015
This obelisk also shows that the wet stone quarrying method— which involves inserting wooden wedges into carved perforations and saturating them, causing them to expand and the rock to crack—was not used. So the questions remain: How was this object cut out from the extremely hard surrounding granite rock? And how was it to have been removed from the ground beneath it? Why would anyone us such a seemingly absurd method to remov this mega-monolith from the surrounding rock? Yet this too is attributed to the Pharaohs.
Megaliths on Easter Island The famous Moai figures were generally erected along the island coast with their backs to the ocean. The largest monolith statue is nearly 10 meters high and weighs nearly 100 tons. There are around 900 of these stone giants hewn from the tufa stone of the Rano Raraku volcano. Nearly 300 of the statues are found in a horizontal position. The largest of these is nearly 21 meters tall and is still connected to the mountainside.

If you’re like me, when working on a major life project you look for synchronicities to signal you’re on the right path. So it was with this book. In considering how to present the regression/soul-writing sessions I conducted during my nearly six-month research project, I decided to organize them in their past-life chronological order. In doing so, I was able to illustrate how soul groups incarnate together, coming in at approximately the same time and having similar experiences even if they aren’t in the same location or the same year. So it was in the Universe’s wonderfully synchronistic way, that out of fifty volunteers, it was Frank DeMarco’s past life that went back the furthest, and thus would earn the coveted first story in the first chapter designation. You’ll notice that there are two regression/ soul-writing sessions reported in this chapter. That is because there is a possibility that my other subject’s previous life may go back further than Frank’s. However, during the regression she was unsure when that life occurred and only speculated on a probable time period months after the session. Without a specific date, I decided to place her story in the first chapter, but after Frank’s since he was firmer on a date, originally thinking his lifetime was around 100 B.C. By the way, he is the only person who is identified by his first and last name. That is because he was so prominently mentioned in the Introduction and his work helped me to remain focused on how expansive this method of past-life recall could be in terms of soul development. For the other participants, I’ve used their actual first names, with the exception of those who requested a fictitious name. Pompeii, 79 A.d. The story of the destruction of Pompeii in August, 79 A.D. has been a source of fascination for centuries, so having Frank DeMarco regress to that time and place was as excit- ing as it was intriguing. I admit I was
a little hesitant to work with Frank on this project. After all, he literally wrote the book about talking to the other side. Frank also was consid- erably advanced when it came to working in an altered state of consciousness, having gone through every program at The Monroe Institute over the course of many years. It was Frank’s work at TMI that enabled him to perfect his fluency in communicating with “The Guys Upstairs.” Because of this, I worried that my regression script— written to accommodate participants who were relatively new to past-life work—may have been too elementary for him. I expressed that concern to Frank, but he was so enthusiastic about participating in the project that I agreed to schedule a session with him. I’m glad we did because what followed was one of the most compel- ling sessions of my career. Frank first experienced a past-life regression in 1987 but admitted it had been years since he did a guided session with a past-life therapist. When we began, Frank assured me he had no pre-conceived notion of where the regression would lead, but nonetheless he went back to a lifetime he had vis- ited before in one of his earlier regressions. He once again was Clio, a young male Caucasian with an olive complexion. Clio was thin, “the way young boys can be.” Frank sensed Clio was a tall, healthy teenager with boyish hands that did not as yet reflect a lifetime of work. He had coarse (described as the texture of a Brillo pad) dark hair. He wore leather sandals and a “Roman” robe made of a rough gray material. His clothing was not fancy—something worn every day, with what Frank described as having a blue jeans-feel to it. Although in his soul-writing session Frank questioned whether Clio was an orphan, during the regression portion he had a sense about Clio’s parents, speculating that Clio’s father was a stern man, but not ill natured; someone who commanded respect. It was Clio’s mother who was the heart of the family. 47 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥
Clio lived in the western part of southern Italy, near Naples. It was the “chilly side of spring” but not cold enough for him to be covered in clothing. There were no buildings in sight, but there was a cave nearby that he used for shelter or when he wanted to be alone. Frank initially thought that Clio worked as a shepherd, but later changed his mind. Clio was alone in the cave eating an evening meal con- sisting of a piece of flatbread, like pita, that he had pulled out of his sack. Frank sensed Clio was not supposed to eat much and thought that perhaps this was because he was on the equivalent of a vision quest. The heart of any regression is the exploration of a signifi- cant event in that lifetime. When asked to go to that event, Frank described Clio as a “diviner in fire,” a prophet or soothsayer who gained insight into a question or situation through a fiery ritual. He worked closely with a slightly older teacher to develop this ability. Frank stressed the importance of need- ing a mentor because if Clio tried doing this work alone, he would weaken. His mentor taught him to use a burning image to keep his conscious mind busy as he went into an altered state of consciousness. While in that state he could scan immediate time and space and get impressions about what was coming. Those impressions were his “finds” and his job was to share what he saw with the populace. When he was in his early twenties, Clio prophesized there would be a huge disaster at Pompeii. While he was recognized as a prodigy, he also was arrogant and much too young and inexperienced to know how to translate what he was seeing so that people would understand and accept his premonitions. He thought that by simply sharing his vision, the majority of Pompeii’s 20,000 residents would believe him and immediately begin an orderly evacuation. But rather than listening to him and leaving, they stayed. They did not take his warning seriously and 48 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ April
thought, even if it were true, they had plenty of time to escape. When Vesuvius erupted, the citizens of Pompeii realized the seriousness of the situation and panicked. The resulting stampede was something Clio had not foreseen. Although he knew where to go to escape death, he was overcome with guilt at having failed to convince the populace to leave. With death and destruction inevitable, his remorse was so unbearable that he no longer wanted to live. Rather than save himself, he went to the caves near the ocean and stayed there with a crowd of people who did not recognize him as the prophet of doom. Extreme heat, coupled with clouds of toxic gases and ash, quickly filled the cave. As he and the others were overcome, his last thoughts were that despite his training, talents, and position, he had failed his mission. He should have accepted responsibility for his gifts and used them in a less pompous way. If he had been humble, he would have come across as more sincere. Perhaps then he would have been believed and more lives would have been saved. When asked how Clio’s life was impacting his current life, Frank said, “Subconsciously I know what I’m doing long before my conscious side does. My mission is to encourage beginners. I’m very surefooted now.” Once the regression was over, I asked Frank to continue with the soul-writing session to obtain additional informa- tion about Clio’s life and how it was impacting him today while I contacted my Source and wrote along with him. Frank’s Soul Writing Clio and David. Asthma the result of seared lungs? Breathing seems to have calmed down as we did the re-enactment. Paul (brother) a fellow practitioner? No parents. Orphan/no memory of them?
Seemingly no other life but serving. Too cocksure, plus too inexperi- enced. Regret, remorse, wasted training. Cautious atti- tude, humility, caution. Certainty, sureness in doing these things today. The sea, the sky, the land—in love with the earth. Loved the Spartan aspect of training, too. Hardship like fasting , welcomed. My Soul Writing You were asking about soul groups or soul families who incarnate together for a common cause. Such is the case with souls like Frank’s who are drawing upon ancient wisdoms and applying them to contemporary audiences. Never before has there been such a need for this. In times past, clusters of such souls— charged with being truthseekers and lightbearers—have come forth to be what was often the lone voice of reason. Most paid dearly for expressing their wisdom and truth—which is why in every case they are gripped with fear in some fashion to not step forward again. Yet because there are so many of them—each attempting to find the other to join energies for the greater good—and because the times have shifted so while it is not totally safe to express truth—for elements still exist to smother— and we use that word deliberately—the light that each gives—it is nonetheless a time when the need for those collective voices to be heard. Frank is a subject for this research project who is evolved and has the knowing— yet more will come forward as you continue and word spreads of your desire to further this study. You will see the landscape change and with it will come a clear direction of what to do next. Frank’s writing session revealed something I did not know, and something neither of us discussed beforehand, and that was that Frank had been battling asthma. We went into the session to review the lifetime that was impacting him in the here and now. His soul chose the one in which he acquired a physical karma that was manifesting as asthma nearly 2,000 years later.
Our bodies contain information that can be read like a karmic history book. Many physical conditions often are related to an event that occurred in a prior lifetime. This is a bold statement, for certainly there are physical maladies that have nothing to do with a past life. Nonetheless, the Edgar Cayce life readings contain countless references to people’s current afflictions being the result of choices they made in a previous life. Karmic manifestations are a true example of cause and effect; of reaping what you sow. Interesting to note that physical conditions emanating from a previous life may not occur in the immediate subse- quent lifetime. Frank was dealing with a respiratory condi- tion that originated in 79 A.D. No doubt his soul had many lifetimes between Clio’s and Frank’s, but for whatever reason chose to balance the slate at a much later date when circum- stances were just right for the lesson to be learned. There are a number of ways to get help for the past-life traumas that are impacting you in the here and now. Certainly, a past-life regression is a good start. But in Frank’s case, the regression alone did not initiate his “ah ha” moment linking the asthma with the Pompeii death by suffocation. The soul- writing session did that. Spontaneous healings often occur simply when the root cause of the problem is uncovered. In his book, Through Time Into Healing, Brian L. Weiss, M.D., wrote: “Like migraine headaches, asthma, respiratory infections and allergies are physical conditions in the current lifetime that seem to have origins in suffering experienced in previous lifetimes. Past physical trauma seems to have present physical residue.” When Frank saw Clio inhaling the burning ash into his lungs, he made the connection that his present day asthma stemmed from his past-life death from suffocation. That real- ization may only have surfaced in this lifetime because Frank is similar to Clio in 49 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ April 2015

The understanding, linked with feeling, seems to be have resolved a long-term health problem.” Both studied esoteric truths and both saw themselves as mentors or teachers, sharing that wisdom for the common good. Clio did this with his prophecies. Frank does it with his books and lectures.
Frank said he was impressed with the information I acquired on his behalf. “It clarified things I had felt before but hadn’t linked up in my mind. This is a very valuable technique that should be developed and promoted at large.”

An Excerpt from A Journey to Oneness
Speaks about the State of our World
52 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM â™Ľ April 2015
In A Journey to Oneness—the long-awaited sequel to the underground spiritual classic, Oneness—Divine Messenger, Rasha, takes us along on a seven-year odyssey through the labyrinths of consciousness, as she shares the incredible story of her own spiritual journey. With the profound wisdom of Oneness (the Divine Presence often referred to as “God”) to light the way, A Journey to Oneness takes us for an authentic ride on the roller-coaster of spiritual transformation and gives us the tools to radically change our lives—and transform our world.

Rasha is a modernday spiritual Messenger, she has worked as a courier of Divine guidance for over twenty years. In February 1998, she began a profound dialogue with the universal Presence, “Oneness”─ the Divinity we all share.

Manifestation by Dr. Joe Gallenberger
art by Jimmy Lawlor 56 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM â™Ľ April 2015
Using PK energy for manifestation can also has the characteristic of seeing results occur instantly. But in the case of manifestation versus PK or healing, it often does take a bit more time. Achieving a manifestation where you are dissolving a previous painful pattern and substituting a new positive pattern can take weeks or years. It can also take months or years for some dramatically life-changing patterns to manifest, particularly when they involve other people. For example, if you have been in a painful relationship and now want to manifest the ideal soul mate, many things might have to change within your personality and circumstances, including the healing of your previous relationship experience, so that fear and anger are melted. Then the timing needs to be orchestrated ideally by the universe for you both to meet. An advantage of manifestation work is that for things that are important to you, the motivation to succeed is high. Another advantage is that often the universe cooperates with you strongly, if what you desire will be something that expands your growth and has positive impact on others. There is also the advantage that it is often easier to visualize just what success can look and feel like, particularly if it is something as concrete as a new car. As mentioned in MC² we do treasure maps that put in pictorial form just what we want to manifest. Often we receive reports that everything on the map has been manifested in a few months.
is also a challenge because it presents us with the unknown and a divergence from our comfortable (or not so comfortable, but at least familiar) status quo. For manifestation to occur your desire has to be greater than your fear, and often the speed of manifestation relates to just how much higher your desire is than your fear. The issue of other people’s agenda tends to be present more in manifestation work than healing work, in that, as we become different or have an obvious run of great fortune, other people around may be more uncomfortable with the change, than if we have headaches and use energy healing to alleviate them. Popularized by the movie, The Bucket List, people are making a list of things that they want to experience before finishing this incarnation. Being a teacher of manifestation skills, it is interesting to see these lists because they suggest what people would most like to create. While people often say in casual conversation that they would like to manifest a new car, house, etc., on their bucket lists, usually there are no such things. Rather, bucket lists include experiences such as running a marathon, or learning to paint. This indicates to me that experiences are treasured more highly than things. People understand that happiness and feelings of aliveness are more likely to be supported by experience versus possessions.

a successful life as follows: “To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” The task is to translate this lofty statement into practicality. For example, a business partner shared with me that as a frequent traveler, he transforms his airport experiences from the usual hectic and hassled event by seeing to whom he can be of even small service, raising his own energy by helping others.
With all this talk about abundance I do not mean to imply that all circumstances of life are meant to be a bed of roses. Even roses have thorns. But we can use the same skills used in abundance creation to flow through the hard parts of life more quickly, consciously, and soulfully. Adversity can be a rich source for deepening our understanding and appreciation of ourselves, our loved ones, and of the world. Just as I did with PK and healing I would like to end this section by offering some brief manifestation guidelines.

how good this manifestation will make you feel and how it will benefit others. • Send your energy before you—affirming that synchronicity and intuition will take you toward your goal or something better. • Detach from results with full trust that good ness will come to you and knowing that you are already are a sacred being to whom all good is available. • Send positive energy to all others, seeing them in their maximum soul potential. Allow others to help and guide you. Be abundantly generous with yourself and others, and the universe will be generous with you. This includes being joyfully generous with your money, smiles, time, attention, and positive thoughts. • Make sure that your desire to succeed is greater than your fear of failure. For exam ple, are you are more afraid of being jobless than you desire the best job in the universe for you? Fear truly is a prayer for what you do not want. Remember: Fear is expensive and love is priceless—choose wisely. • Fear in all its forms, from procrastination, boredom, doubt, cynicism, impatience, self-criticism, laziness, etc. can be very challenging to release especially if it is held in life-long patterns. Use meditation, friends, coaches, and workshops to help you iden tify and release these limits.

There is no set answer, and no guarantee of what tomorrow might bring. I can only speak of my personal experience, it is my belief that without a strong spiritual connection and an “awakening” if you will, I would not have been able to get sober and most definitely would have no chance of remaining that way. Trying to describe what a spiritual awakening is presents many challenges, especially since it is completely unique to the individual having the experience. For me it was not a matter of developing a belief in God/A Higher Power or The Universe. I have been fascinated by the wonders of creation for as long as I can remember. I have read the sacred texts of many religions and ultimately came to believe that no one religion was the way. That ultimately whatever the path is that one chooses to follow what matters is the connection they established with something greater, a faith, a belief that provides comfort and for me most importantly hope. Hope that things can change, that people can change and there is support to achieve this change.

Recently in the news a debate has begun between those that feel that in order to achieve sobriety individuals need to take a more scientific approach rather than a spiritual one. What I have yet to hear is a conversation rather than an argument that melds the two, science and spirituality. It would seem to me that there is room for belief in both. The facts of science do not need to be disputed in order to allow room for spiritual beliefs. Science is verifiable, there are set facts and figures that can be measured and replicated. Spirituality is quite the opposite, a force and phenomenon that is forever changing, ever growing. They don’t need to compete since they are not alike, but rather in an indescribable way can work together to complement and complete the other in order to fill in the blanks where one might feel the other is lacking. Logic and reason can take one only so far, for years my mind knew what I was but it wasn’t until my heart jumped in the game that my life began to change. When I could sense a power greater than myself carrying me further than my will and drive could bring me and I realized that the spirit of the universe cared for me in a way that I was unable to care for myself. It is through continued prayer, meditation and reflection on spiritual things that my life has become rich and has remained alcohol free. For me, alcohol was a barrier to my spiritual life. My mind was clouded and veiled, unable to access the indescribable Grace of the I Am presence. If I had to suggest “how” this can happen it would be to say, remain open and willing, there is no need to leave science behind in order to make spirituality a part of your life. Trust that the universe continues to conspire for your greatest good, change is possible and miracles do happen. One of the miracles for me has been a life of sobriety, a life unlike one I thought possible and one that I personally attribute to a spiritual phenomenon that allowed me to begin my life anew.

MAKE A WISH by Ellen Angelica Pendergast
The other day I was asked that if I could make one wish, what would it be. At first, like all things, one feels they know EXACTLY what they would wish for....money, good health, Love, etc....but I suddenly found that I just could not make only ONE wish!
art by http://antaratma.photoshelter.com/
70 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM â™Ľ April 2015
So many thoughts ran thorough my head regarding what would be the BEST WISH! I first thought possibly money would be THE wish, for without money to buy things and take care of ourselves and others, many ruin their good health and even lose their families because of a lack of food, shelter, etc. But of course my next thought was how even though countless people do have money, many are completely miserable (sometimes even committing suicide!), or overdosing on drugs due to their addictions because of their unhappiness; so difficult and sad their lives seem to be for them.
Suddenly good health seemed the wish I considered, and then I realized that even with good health (and money), most people are so lonely without Love. Love then seemed to be the one thing I would always wish for; in other words, to Love and to be Loved. BUT, suddenly I realized that even with Love, if money issues and/or bad health are present, how could one even enjoy Love to the fullest? Most importantly, it certainly would be much more difficult to enhance another’s life if one was in bad health or lacked financial means to keep both themselves and their Loved ones, stress-free. A realization then occurred, and I gratefully understood why this was all so difficult to decide! And the reason is this: We cannot be satisfied with one wish! The interesting part is that it is not for the reason one would think (selfishness, being confused, etc.). Rather it is because we are a three in One Being... we are Mind, Body, and Spirit! And in that we must have all three in balance to be happy. For our bodies, we must have good health to enjoy our lives to the fullest. We also must have financial security of some kind in order to eat, have shelter, and to enjoy experiences in our lives such as holidays, vacations; even buying our loved ones things that enhance their lives, which helps keep our mind in a state of peace. And then, finally Love, for our Soul, for without that, the others cannot help us reach that state to make our health and financial security worthwhile. Life is balance, and when all three aspects of our Being are in balance, so are we....as quoted in a book, called ‘The Secret,’ by Rhonda Bryne, some say they are spiritual, but they are sick and broke, and that is not wealth nor spirituality; nor is it balance. We must have all three aspects of who we Really Are satisfied, and the only way to experience that is to declare it as a truth that we deserve it. Why? Because we BREATHE! We are ALL magnificent, sacred designs of the Universe, and are born with that right! We are also three in one, and the first step to balance is to acknowledge THAT!
So, remember, never be afraid to give yourself EVERYTHING you have ever wanted in your life. As God is All Love, in truth, there is really no other way that it would, or ever could be! All are worthy to be in balance, to be happy, and to have ALL their ‘wishes’ come true! Blessings!
