I would like to thank everyone for their kind words and thoughtfulness during the passing of my mother Elizabeth Malek on 14 September 2013. My special thanks go out to three people who thru there extra efforts my mother will always be remembered. My cousin Cybel Jalilvand Maio, who made a donation to a local animal rescue shelter in my mother’s name. This is extremely thought full since my mother from the time I can remember was always showing kindness to every animal that she crossed paths with. And helped us with our rescued animals during the years. My very good friend Craig Wyner who made a donation in my mother’s name to the Alzheimer’s Association. One of the greatest tributes that can be paid to an individual is for others to acknowledge them by making a donation to a charity in their name. And my husband’s co-workers Espy Sutton. During the annual Alzheimer’s walk in Valencia, CA she placed my mother’s name on a sticker and walked the walk for her.

Mynzah My name is Mynzah. In November of 2008, I experienced a spontaneous Kundalini Awakening. Prior to that, I worked in various capacities. I served 4 years in the U.S. Marine Corps, and was a Sheriff for 5 years. In addition, I have an A.A. degree in Liberal Studies as well as a Bachelors Degree in Management and Organizational Development. At the time of my Kundalini awakening, I was an employee going on 11 years with the Office of Education. After my awakening, I began developing my creative potential by writing spiritual quotes and poetry, and creating spiritual art, all of which are of a cosmic nature. I also began playing the djembe. I participate weekly in a drumming circle and enjoying playing with a few bands in Sedona. My kundalini awakening released knowledge inside of me that had been stored away, including my Walk-In experience and my Cosmic roots. I am currently working on my autobiography which will disclose my experiences as a child who is aware theyâ€™re not from Earth, and my path of walking this plane as such a Being.

I use the gifts I received through my awakening to assist the collective consciousness with spiritual guidance through my art and writings, and creating an online community via my website, youtube, and facebook. My intention while here is to reach as many as I possibly can through my art and writings to help spark the Divine remembrance within. My artwork has been published in literary works internationally, and I have sold custom and commercial pieces around the world. I recently completed an exclusive art piece for a musician in Melbourne, Australia that is utilizing it for their album cover . Each day, the number of people I connect with through my website, facebook, and youtube, and in person, increases. It is my honor and a blessing to serve the collective by providing the whole with that which has been forgotten. http://www.mynzah.com http://www.facebook.com/mynzah http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/mynzahpleiadian-starseeder.html

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves. ♥ ~ Siddhartha Gautama ~ The Buddha
The mind can be a tricky prankster that jerks our attention from one thing to another. Maybe it’s the list of things to do, or random thoughts that show up uninvited. Like a bad neighborhood we try to avoid, the mind can lure us into caverns of troubled confusion. The megacomplex of thoughts and associations referred to as the ‘mind’ can be a petty tyrant that victimizes us throughout our lives. The chambers of the mind are sticky and we struggle to disentangle ourselves. Thoughts can show up as restricting beliefs that capture us and keep us in a padlocked prison, repeating familiar but negative scenarios. To make matters worse, we can become loyal slaves, identify with accepted limiting beliefs and build a life around them. But good news is here! Everybody’s mind is like a wild monkey till focusing practices are applied and practiced. The idea of being held captive by our thoughts is less powerful once you understand that 12 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ October 2013
the mind can become a magnificent tool for transformation. We become what we continually think. There are a myriad of ways to train your mind. A regular walk in nature, painting, dancing, or working out can calm and focus the mind, among many other possibilities. Relaxing in a floatation tank can evaporate all concerns and render you profoundly calm, with a deep sense of clarity and refreshment. My favorite mind-focusing practice is meditation. First I sit in my favorite chair with my head, neck and spine erect, but relaxed, my feet firmly on the floor. I gently clasp my hands, thumbs touching or just relax them in my lap. I keep my attention on the breath, put the tip of my tongue on the roof of my mouth, and silently repeat an uplifting phrase. I have found my most engaging experiences are when I also add visualization. The multi-sensory activation occupies my mind, and thoughts evaporate.
For example, I imagine circumstances that bridge me with my soul, which is one with the Divine essence. I picture golden light being absorbed into my every cell. I imagine an angelic choir singing in high sweet tones. Earth energy pushes up through my feet as I grow roots to ground me and draw in Divine Light through the crown of my head. Cleansing my chakras, adjusting my subtle bodies, and requesting guidance are all part of my practice. Often I realign my mind to this inner space when I am busy during my days. I call this living meditation. It feels like having my meditation installed inside me. It’s a wondrous internal feeling that is centering and inspiring. Everybody needs to have a mind-focusing practice and I hope you all have one you love. Like a muscle that needs continual use to gain strength, we need to regularly practice our selected mindtraining technique for our efforts to become successful. The mind can become the greatest tool for creation of everything you desire in your life if you can take the driver’s seat. Whatever form of practice you choose, do visualize the forces of nature and the heavens guiding you. Be gentle, intent and creative with yourself. Imagine what you choose and mentally create it to assist you. Call forth the healing cleansing winds, visualize them swirling and blowing through your body and mind. Wash your body, brush your teeth, and blow your mind!

At some point in time we all wonder, “why is this thing happening to me; what did I do to deserve this?” There is no doubt that unpleasant and even tragic things happen to good people and the bottom line, according to my Guide Group, is that we plan the majority of these things. Why would we do that to ourselves? We do it because there’s a lesson that we want to learn, and our soul has chosen to have a specific experience serve as a window of opportunity to learn that lesson. In past columns, for the purpose of expediting our spiritual growth, we’ve talked about windows of opportunity, relationship villains, and the fact that accidents are not really accidents, they are planned by us. This month, we’re going to take a look at another type of experience that we plan for ourselves: The Bully Window. I had a lot of experience with bullies in elementary and junior high school. I know the pain of being bullied, and I’ve allowed bullies to make me behave in ways I wish I hadn’t. There were times I caved into peer pressure and there were times I resisted it. In fact, if you were looking at a graph showing my popularity during my school years, you would clearly see where I resisted and where I gave in. The Bully window was opened for me so many times that there is no doubt in my mind that this was an important must learn item on my spiritual “To Do” list for this lifetime. As an adult, after spending a great deal of time reviewing my life looking for life scripts, patterns, and windows of opportunity*, I realized that I learned a great deal from my bully windows. 16THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ October 2013
By working with my Guides and becoming aware of the nature of bullies, I’ve learned to recognize bully windows much more quickly than when I was a kid, and I take immediate action to put an end to them when I notice them popping up in my personal life. My Guide Group has been very clear in the information they’ve provided on this subject, and I think that one of the hardest things to come to terms with about a bully window is that we plan for the bullies in our lives. They are a type of relationship villain** and the learning that takes place from this type of interaction is as important to the spiritual growth of the person being bullied as it is to the bully him/herself. Here’s some interesting information about bullies from my Guide Group (the “GG”), which was originally dictated for my book Windows of Opportunity to help us gain a better perspective and understanding of this distinct type of relationship villain: “Bullies are an ugly thing but they are very much a planned occurrence for any given lifetime. When someone bullies you, you feel badly about yourself. Bullies stab at one’s self-esteem and make one feel that they are not good enough or smart enough to fit in with the ‘in crowd.’ When a soul decides to be bullied in a particular incarnation it is usually because they want to work on building confidence and self-esteem.We can tell you, too, that the ‘idea’ of being bullied when you are at the planning table is very much different from the actual feeling of the experience during an incarnation.
Many things that seem like they will be a breeze to go through when you’re on the planning side of the veil don’t turn out to be easy once you are back in body. Being the bully is not a job that souls cherish and if you look at them, really look at them, you’ll see that they have issues they need to overcome, and the role of bully gives them the opportunity to do so. The soul who bullies you is most likely a close universal friend, because only someone who truly loves you would want to take on such a nasty role. Those that love us want to help us achieve our goals and our growth in the shortest amount of time possible.” Looking back, there is no doubt that each of my bully experiences were windows of opportunity for learning—they were all pretty much the same and were based on ostracizing someone (think life script here), and they all pretty much all went like this: the “in group” decided like didn’t like someone, and if you were friends with that person or continued to stay friends with that person, then you found yourself on the receiving end too. The first time I experienced this I was in elementary school, and I’m sorry to say that I gave in. The next time I experienced it was in junior high school, and I didn’t give in that time—I had always felt extremely guilty for what I had done in elementary school and I wanted to make up for it. For two years I was on the receiving end of a group of bullies, and I lost most of my friends. But I didn’t back down that time—I stuck with my friend, who was the original target of this little band of bullies, learned
the lesson, and I never had to go through this particular scenario again. In fact, when I was in High School, I didn’t belong to any clique, but instead had lots of friends from many different cliques. So how did I deal with the pain during two years of constant bullying? During those difficult times, I tried my best to ignore them and continue on with my life—I never let them see that what they were saying had any impact on me whatsoever. After awhile, I wasn’t fun for them because they got no reaction from me. I didn’t lose all my friends, I still had a few, and they were a great support group for me, although I had no idea what a support group was at the time. I noticed that my particular bullies liked to strike when I was alone, so having other people around definitely helped. I continued with my life and pursued the things that I liked best—I joined clubs, I took the classes that I was interested in, and I excelled at those classes. I developed a great deal of confidence and self-reliance during that time, and I met a lot of people from diverse groups with whom I eventually became friends. But to put a stop to the “bully window of opportunity” repeating for me, I had to take a stand for what I believed in. I had to learn not to cave into peer pressure—that was my big lesson to learn and the bully experience was the tool for me to learn it. Because this was a lesson that I learned early in life, I knew how to deal with bullies at work and in my romantic and personal life; and because I dealt with it early on, 17 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ October
it’s a rare thing for a bully to try to push me around. That’s the great thing about learning a lesson: we’re done with it and we get to move on to other lessons and other experiences. We all have different lessons that we want to learn, that we planned to learn, during this incarnation. The best way to figure out how to stop attracting the same unpleasant circumstance, be it a bully situation, or something else, is to do a mini-life review and look for life scripts and patterns. Once you spot them, examine how you acted or re-acted in each situation and make adjustments to your attitude/behavior. Changing the way you deal with a situation that keeps repeating itself is the best way to complete a lesson and go through a window of opportunity. And remember, we planned the bullies in our lives—hard to accept, I know, but becoming aware of our part in planning unpleasant experiences will help us wake up faster, spot the windows, learn the lesson, and expedite our spiritual growth.

*Windows of Opportunity: Windows are opportunities for growth and learning that we personally designed and created for ourselves while we were on the other side of the veil planning our present incarnation. Think of your life as a book with chapters, and in each chapter we insert scenarios or situations constructed to help us learn a particular lesson or have a growth experience. Why look for Windows of Opportunity? Each time we learn a lesson or complete an experience on our “to do” list for this lifetime, we have more time to work on other items on our learning list. The more we accomplish, the more rapidly we mature spiritually. To make sure that we learn a particular lesson that we are intent on learning, we incorporate many possible windows of opportunity into our lives so that if we miss one, we will have another chance to acquire the learning or have the experience we need and want for our spiritual growth. As we miss one window and go on to another, the windows become increasingly more dramatic—that is to help us wake up and learn our lesson. Spotting windows “on the ground floor instead of in the penthouse” means that we can learn our lessons with less drama and pain as we start to recognize windows earlier; which, in turn, will help us accelerate our growth so we can more quickly move on to other lessons and experiences.

**Relationship Villains: Relationship Villains are souls who are our closest universal friends when we are on the other side of the veil, but for this incarnation, they have volunteered to play the part of “the bad guy” to help us cross something important off of our spiritual “must learn” list for this incarnation. They might be people who simply annoy us, or even those we consider to be our so-called enemies. They are catalysts for learning: They create (or co-create) unpleasant situations that open windows of opportunity for us to learn and grow, or they may take action that forces us to stay on our chosen path--either way, their purpose is to help us accomplish our learning/ growth faster; and in what may ultimately be a less dramatic or painful way. Relationship Villains can be anyone and you will find them everywhere. Look for them especially in romantic relationships, family relationships, and work relationships, but they will also turn up at school, at t he grocery store, at the airport, the DMV, and anywhere you happen to be! They can be someone you have an on-going relationship with, or someone you interact just once or twice. When you learn the lesson, your relationship with your “relationship villain” will become much more palatable (this is usually the case when the “villain” is a family member) or your relationship will end because your mission together is over (as often happens with friends).

Ignorance is not Bliss by Cosmo Cavallaro “An individual’s potential of life is cosmic potential. The individual is divine deep inside. Transcendental experience awakens that divinity within.” ~ Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
To live in the world without becoming aware of the meaning of life is like aimlessly wandering around in a great library without ever touching the books. Humanity has barely scratched the surface of our mental and spiritual potentialities. We are poised on the threshold of a new emerging paradigm shift; a major fundamental shift in the collective consciousness of all sentient beings. Predictions of an eventual age of enlightenment are echoed in virtually every faith and philosophical teaching from antiquity to the present era. Astrologist call it the Age of Aquarius, Hindus call it the Krita Age, Hebrews call it the Coming of Messiah, Theosophists call it the New Age, Cosmetologists call it Harmonic Convergence and Christians
call it the Rapture. I am fascinated by the fact that throughout history humanity’s disparate philosophies have all concurred that a conversion towards enlightenment, a spiritual awakening is inevitable. In today’s modern times, almost every spiritual culture across the planet, the human vision and dream has embraced the same conceptual continuity, that of the coming apotheosis of humanity; the impending eventuality of the transformation of our mortal minds into their highest frequencies. “We do not learn; and what we call learning is only a process of recollection.” ~ Plato

There will be an awakening! Human kind will manifest a collective realization that the purpose and meaning of life is not a learned experience after all, but that this wisdom is embedded deep within our consciousness waiting to be awakened, remembered and recognized as the truth of our existence. We are on the verge of a truly great illumination and we are profoundly blessed to be living through this anticipated and exquisite moment in history. The purposeful unfolding of this realization has been revealed throughout the ages through the “word”, the recorded collection of all the ancient masters, the spiritual realities as taught by the great sages. Every culture has its’ own sacred scriptures, its’ own ‘word”, each one uniquely different, yet each one resonates with the same truths.

Concealed within their pages exists a wondrous and eternal truth that has been shrouded in misunderstanding. The time is coming when this light will be blazing bright and human kind will finally begin to grasp the simple transformational truth of the ancient mysteries. The wisdom that is dormant in our consciousness will be enlivened and restored. Our journey in this mortal realm will take a quantum leap forward in understanding our true nature and embrace our purpose of achieving selfrealization and experiencing our full potential.
Time can be illustrated like a river and the sacred scriptures are like ships floating on the currents of time. Many ancient volumes have started the journey only to be lost beyond our recall or shipwrecked on the sands of time. Only a few, a very few, have endured the tests of time and still exist to enlighten ours and future generations. Such is the significance of several powerful volumes such as: the Torah, the Rig Vedas, the Bhagavad Gita, the Bible and the Sutras of Patanjali. I believe there are several reasons why they have survived while others have vanished.
He, who learns but does not think, is lost. He who thinks and does not learn is in great danger.” ~Confucius
The teachings of Jesus of Nazareth and Jesus himself were impeccable. He spoke of spiritual realities with simple eloquence. His sermons and discourses had a singularity of purpose to bring us out of the dark cave of ignorance. He emphasized in his teachings that “everything that is now hidden or secret will eventually be brought to light”. His words still resonate in our consciousness; such as: “Know ye not that ye are gods?”, “Why do you marvel at these works I do? You can do even greater works than I”, “Seek and you shall find”. One of his most profound revelations was: “The Kingdom of HeavThese collections of ancient wisdom, en lies within”. in their sublime and mysterious teach26 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ October 2013
His teachings and others like him have been misinterpreted through the ages. I believe Jesus was teaching us the potent power of consciousness and thought. Modern revelations through the emergence of Noetic Science are revealing truths about the human condition and paths to reach our full potential. Noetic Science brings objective scientific tools and techniques together with subjective inner knowing and intuition to study the full range of human experiences. The great psychologist William James described these experiences as: “States of insight into depths of truth unplumbed by the discursive intellect. They are illuminations, revelations, full of significance and importance, all inarticulate though they remain; and as a rule they carry with them a curious sense of authority.”

Living life on a world of polarity, duality has offered some challenges and many gifts as well. For in overcoming the challenges on the way to remembering yourself, you have perhaps a deeper understanding of who you are by knowing what you are not. We are a family of lightness, which is always expanding, growing, developing and becoming more. The journey you have been experiencing and expressing here in Earth has been a part of the Grand Plan of the journey of lives. You are in truth great masters on the path to remembering that truth and exploring what that means and the many ways you can express and experience.

by John Hwang This is “Melody” she hears voices. She has been homeless for the past 6 months. She told me that one of the dangers at night for her is that she can be raped, as she has already been assaulted before. During the day she walks around downtown begging for change or food. She is often shunned or ignored by people or chased away by security guards for being a ‘pest.’ When I saw her begging in the street, I went to the market and bought her some fresh fruit; apples and peaches. It turns out she has no teeth, so she couldn’t eat them. So we walked around Little Tokyo and I treated her to whatever she wanted to eat. Sadly she waited outside of the market or restaurants because she was afraid of the security guards. As I came out of the restaurant with her dinner, from a distance I saw her sitting on the bench waiting for me while people walked by staring at her. I felt really moved where I wanted to cry. She ate very quickly as she was very hungry. Then we sat together on the bench and she shared with me stories of her life, her family, as well as her struggles with her psychiatric condition. I asked “Melody, do you still hear voices now?” and she responded with “I can hear yours...” and we both smiled.

Crystal therapy is considered as a holistic technique or an alternative method for healing that can be used to strengthen the mind and body. Crystal healers have been around since the ancient times, to our days. It is a type of treatment that is established and proven to be safe and beneficial to the body. Crystal Therapy and Chakras Basically, crystal healers provide healing to the body and mind by placing the gemstones on areas of the body referred to as “chakras”. It is the term used to describe the spiritual energy centers, which can be found in everyone. There are seven main chakras all throughout the body; and every chakra works in conjunction with others to form an individual’s energy. When the chakras are not aligned, it can bring about negative or bad energy that can be directed to the body and mind. What the crystals do is to redirect all the negative energies and bring them back to positive energies; which can bring the natural balance of the body, including the chakras. Thus, Crystal therapy is widely used by healers to provide cure to various medical conditions; as well as spiritual misguidance and emotional discrepancies. Crystal Therapy Benefits Gemstone therapy offers tons of benefits not only on the physical aspect, but on the mental and emotional aspect as well. Some of the benefits include the following: *It works great to promote personal development, vitality and health. 36 THEDENMAGAZINE.COM ♥ October 2013

*It can provide healing to a variety of physical conditions that even contemporary medicine cannot cure. It can also be effectively used in conjunction with modern medicine. *It provides relief to anxiety, stress and depression as well as promotes relaxation. *It can assist in conditions like headaches, pain, menstrual problems, fatigue and even concentration and learning difficulties. *It can also work with wealth building, personal fulfillment and social relationships. *It balances the spirit, body and mind to achieve the normal balance of energies in the body. Despite all these healing benefits, it is highly advised that Crystal therapy should not be used in replacement for medical treatment. This can be used as a support therapy as it is very helpful in enhancing your total wellbeing. Looking For a Crystal Healer? If you wish to try Crystal therapy, but you are not quite sure how you can go about this treatment, it is best to go to the experts. Although there can be plenty out there that sell instant crystal solutions, it is best to opt for legitimate options.

It is also best to learn intently on the subject so that you can always make an informed decision. If you want to become a crystal healer yourself there are many online courses that are very recommended and can certify you as a Crystal Therapy healer in less time that you think. 37 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM â™Ľ October 2013

The whole album is visual based and all the tracks are in a sequential order representing a journey into the inner and outer space of our human minds through meditation and bliss dance, reflecting a Spiritual Journey of inner joy, happiness and the feelings of being already fulfilled inside as we all human beings are already blessed by the Almighty and often pleasure is hidden in pain that we miss and get the Supreme Authorities wrong in determining our fate, while we face the odd and challenging situations in our lives…... OCEANIA is his latest Album. It is a New Age, Chill-out and Lounge instrumental Music Album with relaxing Sonic textures suitable for meditation, relaxation, Yoga, deep sleep or just playing in the background while being in a Spa, reading, writing, doing any work or concentrating deeply into something.
