The Ancients Ones
The last thing I expected to see on a late October afternoon hiking in a remote canyon of the Four Corners area in northwestern New Mexico was a Native American wisdom keeper walking toward me on the same trail. Yet there he was, standing at the top of the small incline that separated us as our paths converged that day. I’m not sure how long he’d been there. By the time I saw him, he was just waiting, watching me as I stepped carefully among the loose stones on the path. The low sun created a glow that cast a deep shadow across the man’s body. As I held my hand up to block the light from my eyes, I could see a few locks of shoulder-length hair blowing across his face. He seemed as surprised to see me as I was to see him. The wind carried the sound of his voice toward me as he cupped his hands on either side of his mouth. “Hello!” he shouted. “Hello,” I called back. “I didn’t expect to see anyone here this time of day.” Stepping a little closer, I asked, “ How long have you been watching me?” “Not long,” he replied. “I come here to listen to the voices of my ancestors in those caves,” he said, as one arm pointed toward the other side of the canyon.
The path we were following wound through a series of archaeological sites built nearly 11 centuries before by a mysterious clan of people. No one knows where they came from or who they were. With no evidence of their skills evolving over time, the people that modern natives simply call “the ancient ones” showed up one day in history and brought with them the most advanced technology that would be seen in North America for another thousand years. From the four-story-tall buildings and perfect stone kivas (round ceremonial structures) buried in the ground to the vast irrigation systems and the sophisticated crops that sustained the people, this place seems to have just appeared one day. And then those who built it were suddenly gone. They just vanished. The ancient ones left precious few clues to tell us who they were. With the exception of the rock art on the canyon walls, no written records have ever been found. There are no sites of mass burials or cremations, or weapons of war. Yet the evidence of their existence is there: hundreds of ancient dwellings in an 11-mile-long, 1-mile-wide canyon in the remote corner of a desolate canyon in northwestern New Mexico. I’ve gone to this place often to walk, immerse myself in the strange beauty of the open desolation, and feel the past. On that late October afternoon, both the wisdom keeper and I had come to the high desert on the same day for the same reason. As we exchanged our beliefs about the secrets still held there, my new friend shared a story.
“A long time ago, our world was very diﬀerent from the way we see it today,” the wisdom keeper began. “There were fewer people, and we lived closer to the land. People knew the language of the rain, the crops, and the Great Creator. They even knew how to speak to the stars and the sky people. “They were aware that life is sacred and comes from the marriage between Mother Earth and Father Sky. In this time, there was balance and people were happy.”
Remembering the Gifts From Our Ancestors I felt something very ancient well up inside of me as I heard the man’s peaceful voice echo against the sandstone cliﬀs that surrounded us. Suddenly, his voice changed to a tone of sadness. “Then something happened,” he said. “No one really knows why, but people started to forget who they were. In their forgetting, they began to feel separate—separate from the earth, from each other, and even from the one who created and wandered through life with no direction or connection. In their separation, they believed that they had to ﬁght to survive in this world and defend themselves against the same forces that gave them the life they had learned to live in harmony with and trust. Soon all of their energy was used to protect themselves from the world around them, instead of making peace with the world within them.”
them. They were lost
The World Within US Immediately, the man’s story resonated with me. As I listened to what he was telling me, it sounded as if he were describing human beings today! With the few exceptions of isolated cultures and remote pockets of tradition that remain, our civilization certainly places its focus more on the world around us and less on the world within us.
We spend hundreds of millions of dollars each year defending ourselves from disease and trying to control nature. In doing so, we have perhaps strayed further from our balance with the natural world than ever before. The wisdom keeper had my attention—now the question was, where was he going with his story? From the four-story-tall buildings and perfect stone kivas (round ceremonial structures) buried in the ground to the vast irrigation systems and the sophisticated crops that sustained the people, this place seems to have just appeared one day. And then those who built it were suddenly gone—they just vanished.
“Even though they had forgotten who they were, somewhere inside of them the gift of their ancestors remained,” he continued. “There was still a memory that lived within them. In their dreams at night they knew that they held the power to heal their bodies, bring rain when they needed to, and speak with their ancestors. They knew that somehow they could ﬁnd their place in the natural world once again.“
A.I. Parallels In Civilizations As they tried to remember who they were, they began to build the things outside of their bodies that reminded them of who they were on the inside. As time went on, they even built machines to do their healing, made chemicals to grow their crops, and stretched wires to communicate over long distances. The farther they wandered from their inner power, the more cluttered their outer lives became with the things that they believed would make them happy.”

I As I listened, I saw the unmistakable parallels between the people I was hearing about and our civilization today. Our civilization has become steeped in feelings of being powerless to help ourselves or make a better world. So often we feel helpless as we watch our loved ones slip away from us into the clutches of pain and addictions. We think that we’re powerless to ease the suﬀering from the horrible diseases that no living thing should ever have to endure. We can only hope for the peace that will bring those we care about safely from the terror of foreign battleﬁelds. And together, we feel insigniﬁcant in the presence of a growing nuclear threat as the world aligns itself along the divisions of religious beliefs, bloodlines, and borders. It seems that the farther we stray from our natural relationship with the earth, our bodies, one another, and God, the emptier we become. In our emptiness, we strive to ﬁll our inner void with “things.” The question is never really answered in the movie, and the topic could ﬁll an entire book unto itself. However, the point that the advisor is making—when he asks how much of our power we give away to our diversions—is a good one. When we feel that video games, movies, virtual online relationships, and voiceless communication are necessities and they become substitutes for real life and face-to-face contact, this may be signs of a society in trouble. While electronics and entertainment media certainly seem to make life more interesting, they could also be red ﬂags telling us how far we’ve strayed from our power to live rich, healthy, and meaningful lives. Additionally, when the focus of our lives becomes how to avoid disease rather than how to live in a healthy way, how to stay out of war rather than how to cooperate in peace, and how to create new weapons rather than how to live in a world where armed conﬂict has become obsolete, clearly the path we’re on has become one of survival.
In such a mode, no one is truly happy—nobody really “wins.”
“How does the story end?” I asked the wisdom keeper. “Did the people ever find their power and remember who they were?”
By this time, the sun had disappeared behind the canyon walls, and for the ﬁrst time I could actually see who I was talking to. The sun-darkened man standing in front of me smiled broadly upon hearing my question. He was quiet for just a moment, and then he whispered, “No one knows because the story isn’t ﬁnished. The people who got lost are our ancestors, and we are the ones who are writing the ending. What do you think . . . ? ”When we ﬁnd ourselves living this way, the obvious thing to do would be to look for another route. And that’s precisely what the divine matrix is about and why I’m sharing this story.

“The new physics provides a modern version of ancient spirituality. In a universe made out of energy, everything is entangled; everything is one.” – Dr. Bruce Lipton
Masters of our universe?
For over four hundred years, Western civilization has chosen science as its source of truths and wisdom about the mysteries of life. Allegorically, we may picture the wisdom of the universe as resembling a large mountain. We scale the mountain as we acquire knowledge. Our drive to reach the top of that mountain is fueled by the notion that with knowledge we may become â€œmastersâ€? of our universe. Conjure the image of the all-knowing guru seated atop the mountain.
“mountain of knowledge” Scientists are professional seekers, forging the path up the “mountain of knowledge.” Their search takes them into the uncharted unknowns of the universe. With each scientiﬁc discovery, humanity gains a better foothold in scaling the mountain. Ascension is paved one scientiﬁc discovery at a time. Along its path, science occasionally encounters a fork in the road. Do they take the left turn or the right? When confronted with this dilemma, the direction chosen by science is determined by the consensus of scientists interpreting the acquired facts, as they are understood at the time.
Occasionally, scientists embark in a direction that ultimately leads to an apparent dead end.
Along its path, science occasionally encounters a fork in the road.
Joey Nicotra @joeynicotra
Choice Caleb Jones
When that happens, we are faced with two choices: Continue to plod forward with the hope that science will eventually discover a way around the impediment, or return to the fork and reconsider the alternate path.
Unfortunately, the more science invests in a particular path, the more diďŹƒcult it is for science to let go of beliefs that keep it on that path. As historian Arnold Toynbee suggested, the cultural-which includes the scientiďŹ c-mainstream inevitably clings to ďŹ xed ideas and rigid patterns in the face of imposing challenges.
And yet from among their ranks arise creative minorities that resolve the threatening challenges with more viable responses.
Creative minorities are active agents that transform old, outdated philosophical “truths” into new, life-sustaining cultural beliefs. You are the "creative minorities" or what I like to refer to you as the Imaginal Cells making changes to our world. Each of us is “information” manifesting and experiencing a physical reality. Integrating and balancing the awareness of our noetic consciousness into our physical consciousness will empower us to become true creators of our life experiences. When such an understanding reigns, we and the Earth will once again have the opportunity to create the Garden of Eden.

Bruce H. Lipton, PhD is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit. Stem cell biologist, bestselling author of The Biology of Belief and recipient of the 2009 Goi Peace Award, he has been a guest speaker on hundreds of TV and radio shows, as well as keynote presenter for national and international conferences. Dr. Lipton began his scientiﬁc career as a cell biologist. He received his Ph.D. Degree from the University of Virginia at Charlottesville before joining the Department of Anatomy at the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine in 1973. Dr. Lipton’s research on muscular dystrophy, studies employing cloned human stem cells, focused upon the molecular mechanisms controlling cell behavior. An experimental tissue transplantation technique developed by Dr. Lipton and colleague Dr. Ed Schultz and published in the journal Science was subsequently employed as a novel form of human genetic engineering. In 1982, Dr. Lipton began examining the principles of quantum physics and how they might be integrated into his understanding of the cell’s information processing systems. He produced breakthrough studies on the cell membrane, which revealed that this outer layer of the cell was an organic homologue of a computer chip, the cell’s equivalent of a brain. His research at Stanford University’s School of Medicine, between 1987 and 1992, revealed that the environment, operating though the membrane, controlled the behavior and physiology of the cell, turning genes on and oﬀ. His discoveries, which ran counter to the established scientiﬁc view that life is controlled by the genes, presaged one of today’s most important ﬁelds of study, the science of epigenetics. Dr. Lipton’s novel scientiﬁc approach transformed his personal life as well. His deepened understanding of cell biology highlighted the mechanisms by which the mind controls bodily functions, and implied the existence of an immortal spirit. He applied this science to his personal biology, and discovered that his physical well-being improved, and the quality and character of his daily life was greatly enhanced. He is regarded as one of the leading voices of the new biology. Dr Lipton’s work summarizing his ﬁndings, entitled The Biology of Belief, (Hay House Publishing, 202 pages, $25, hardcover, ISBN 978-1-4019-2311- 2). His new book, Spontaneous Evolution, Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here, (Hay House Publishing, ISBN 978-1-4019- 2580-2) is available now. https://www.brucelipton.com
The Nocebo Effect - How Negative Thoughts Can Make You Sick - Dr. Bruce H. Lipton What is the secret behind the “power” of the voodoo shaman? Sorcery? Magic? As you might have guessed, considering I am the author, the answer is Biology. The secret lies in understanding the mind and epigenetics. Of the mind’s two subdivisions, the creative conscious mind, which envisions our wishes and desires, is an expression of our source, or spirit. In contrast, the subconscious mind is a repository of instincts and acquired behavioral programs we engage as habits. While we generally believe that our creative conscious mind is controlling our lives, neuroscience reveals that the character of 95% of our life is controlled by the habits programmed in the subconscious mind.

Accessing the Infinite Database
If youâ€™re familiar with my work, then youâ€™ve probably heard me say that the quantum field is made up of infinite frequencies which carry vital information. But today, I want you to consider this invisible field beyond space and time in a new way: Think of the quantum field as one big, invisible database, and the way you can access the information contained in this huge database is through your central nervous system.
When we connect to the quantum field—that

in themselves), but they are looking (with their senses) for something immediate to happen.
MATCH & MIRROR
GO BEYOND 3D If the majority of your life’s energy and attention has been invested in this outward three-dimensional reality (because where you place your attention is where you place your energy), then you have to put in the work to get beyond yourself and everything material that you perceive with your senses. This requires you to become no body, no one, no thing, no where, in no time. When we can achieve this, we become pure consciousness, and when we become pure consciousness, we’re no longer identifying with anything physical. We become more energy and less matter. This is the bridge that connects us to the quantum field— the consciousness of every body, every one, every thing, every where, in every time. This is the eye of the needle. But you can’t pass through it as your identity, or identifying with anything material—you have to leave all that at the door. In other words, you can’t enter as a somebody, you must enter as a no body.
Once you become pure consciousness, then you as a subjective freewilled consciousness can connect to all the possibilities and potentials of the objective field which governs all the laws of nature. It’s within this field (database) where an infinite number of frequencies within infinite levels of consciousness exist for you to experience. The consciousness of the mystic, the genius, the healer, the healed—they all exist in this field.
move into the unknown
Many people can go around thinking positively and living under the guise that they are the center of the universe. They can believe that everything is happening according to their limited understanding, even though their life isnâ€™t working. But the truth is they have to first move into the unknown, get beyond the memory of themselves as a personality, and then connect to a new future. When done properly and with consistency, the side effect is that changes in their life start unfolding. Those materializations in their personal reality may happen very incrementally and sometimes they wonâ€™t even notice them in the moment they are happening, but then one day they wake up and realize that their new personality has created a new personal realityâ€Śand that they have become someone else. This is the metamorphosis. This is transformation.
As your brain processes a new stream of consciousnesses and energyâ€”and because consciousness and energy moving through the brain creates mindâ€” we can now become the mind of the mystic, the mind of the genius, the mind of the healer, and so forth.
Because all of these possibilities already exist as potentials in the field, all you have to do is keep your attention on it (whatever that it is), stay present with it, and become aware of it. When you can fully surrender and embody this information, it’s almost as if you can begin to remember your future. Every time you remember your future, you call it to you. Now you are upgrading the operating system of your biology and the information that is being downloaded is not coming from the slow evolution of 3D reality. You are installing the operating systems of the divine or supernatural. This the fast track of evolution, both for the individual and the collective. When you are in the sweet spot of the eternal present moment, there’s nothing for you to do and nowhere you have to go to create your future. You just have to pay attention and repeatedly become more and more of the consciousness of whatever it is you want to experience. As you tune into this potential over and over, you can begin to measure the effects by what happens around you. Once you can get beyond yourself and tune into the frequency of that potential, then just like you pull information off of servers and databases when you request information from the internet, you are pulling those potentials into your biology and your life. Now you are becoming your future before it happens. I’d call that a biological upgrade, so let’s install the new software of infinite possibilities and evolve beyond the human experience.
“Once you have a mystical experience and get your ﬁrst glance behind the veil, you can never go back to business as usual.” ~ Dr. Joe
Perhaps we are on the verge of a great evolutionary jump.
Another way to say it is we are going through an initiation, after all, isn’t an initiation a rite of passage from one phase to another? Perhaps the earth is assisting us in lifting the veil, initiating us to a quickening in energy, and enabling us to see our true nature. Maybe when we see, remember, and awaken to who we truly are, human beings can finally move as a collective consciousness from a state of surviving to a state of thriving. www.drjoedispenza.com

By Amit Goswami, Ph.D.
“Consciousness comes ﬁrst; it is the ground of all being. Everything else, including matter, is a possibility of consciousness. And consciousness chooses out of these possibilities all the events we experience.” – Dr. Amit Goswami
Dead or Not Dead: The Fate of God Bridging this gap between philosophy and religion, and speaking of God and the nature of reality in terms of consciousness, and backing itself up with mathematics to the point where Schrodingerâ€™s equation in a sense proves the existence of God, Quantum Physics ushers in a new paradigm, a new dialogue, a new way of viewing an old concept. In Quantum Physics, God is transcendent, is of everything, is non-local. God is an agent
of causation who acts outside of the material universe but effects things within the material world. God is consciousness as non-local, and we are resonant with God when we are not in our ego consciousness but in a non-local state. It is what mystics refer to as God Consciousness, or the oceanic feeling.
virtue Quantum Activism Quantum Physics offers a tight philosophical model based on the fact that consciousness is primary to everything. Things, thoughts, feelings, emotions are all waves of possibilities; waves which are collapsed into actuality by consciousness. Therefore consciousness, not matter, is the ground of all being. (This is an idea not uncommon in religious and philosophical circles, but which is revolutionary in science.) The new paradigm of Quantum Physics speaks in a language which is scientific, clear and objective. Yet unlike science and most philosophies, Quantum Physics espouses orthopraxy as well as orthodoxy. That is, right practice as well as right doctrine. It offers us the concept of Quantum Activism. The goal of this activism is to explore quantum possibilities, to multiply quantum choices, to experience sudden discontinuous leaps of creativity, to process meaning, and to make the fruits of these efforts tangible and transformative in society in much the same way religions would preach the practice of virtues.
In the East, traditions have not so divided philosophy from religion as has the West. Intuition has always been central to Eastern traditions. By embracing philosophical and mystical trends in their texts, stories and doctrines, mainstream religions of the East are more comfortable moving between intuition, reason and faith. Quantum Physics presents this integrated dynamic to the Western mind. Reason is possible within intuition. It is a wisdom path for westerners with experimental data to stimulate, satisfy and correlate the mind of reason with intuition. Quantum Physics puts God back into philosophy and Reason into religion. And what is perhaps most revolutionary is that Quantum Physics appeals to a large audience: To the educated layperson, the spiritual seeker, and the philosophically inquisitive alike. It has yet to win over the scientific world, but that is coming. This new paradigm is not just for the elite curiosities of selected theologians or philosophers, it is a message for the mainstream.
Quantum Physics puts God back into philosophy and reason into religion.
From the French revolution to John F. Kennedy to Barak Obama there had been a troubled yet steady attempt to raise the standard of living for the masses, to rescue the middle class, to lift them, as it were, out of overwhelming drudgery and give them time to process meaning. This is nothing short of preparing the ground for a large group of people to become interested in values and meaning.
This event will stimulate the evolution of Western thought. The time seems appropriate to embrace intuition and reason in conjunction with faith and devotion; to marry science and religion both aglow with philosophy. By redefining the popular God in terms of consciousness, Quantum Physics has breathed life into Nietzsche’s dead divinity completing the trajectory from “God is Dead” to “God is Not Dead.”
In the nineteenth century when Friedrich Nietzsche descried
“God is dead” he was voicing his opposition to several competing world-views; the liberal secularism of his time, Immanuel Kant and post Kantian German Idealism, and to Christian ideology. It is to the latter group that the famous phrase echoes most profoundly and whose resonance is most far reaching. In his response to Christian ideology, Nietzsche is denouncing the scripturally literal and dualistic concept of God as an agent outside of the world who doles out rewards and punishments of heaven and hell in simplistic and un-allegorical terms. As German thought tried to decipher a more sophisticated and numinous God, Nietzsche alerted his contemporaries with the cry of “God is dead” in order to say that we can no longer go back to the simplistic concept of a dualistic God seen as apart from the world.
Friedrich Nietzsche, “God is Dead”
Richard Dawkins Over a hundred and fifty years later there appears to be a new twist on this old phrase. Prominently displayed on the billboards of London buses are the sayings of the evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins stating that, “God probably does not exist, so relax and enjoy life.” This modern version of the phrase has a nuance which is suggestive of hedonism. This, however, is not an all-out cry for atheism. Dawkins’ message is softer than, for example, Jacques Monod, the celebrated biologist who claims atheism as the proper response to the pointlessness of existence; that we are mere chemical accidents. What Dawkins is responding to the fundamentalist version of God, which Nietzsche has already done away with. Dawkins is not attacking the intuitive and mystical notions of God but rather the old fashion “God in the sky” of fundamentalism. To address the shortcomings of the fundamentalist worldview Dawkins should rather have said, “Don’t come to God out of fear.” That, coupled with the question, “Is God good?,” has deep philosophical roots, and this leads one down a beautiful and inquisitive path that suggests God as something more wondrous than His reduction to a dualistic agent.
But by saying relax and enjoy life, Dawkins is feeding one of the burning motivations for fundamentalism; the fear of hedonism. The fear of hedonism in its worst aspect; pleasure-seeking run amok, satiation without restraint, and everywhere chaos. Not only does this fear of hedonism fuel fundamentalism, which is the theological response, but it fuels fundamentalist terrorism, a political reaction to the very same fear. There is another way of viewing God which is gaining acceptance in the West. A view which raises God from the triviality of the fundamentalist worldview and the mockery of Dawkins. A view which brings into perspective a more sophisticated, more accurate and more mystical God rising from the ashes of the funeral pyre Nietzsche had prepared. This view finds its articulation in Quantum Physics. Drawing on concepts brought to light by Einstein and advanced by a host of thinkers and scientists including Rupert Sheldrake, Roger Penrose, Feynman, David Bohme, C. Blood and others, I have become one of the leading voices of this new paradigm in science. In my book God Is Not Dead as well as in the movie The Quantum Activist, in which I state my case rather succinctly, there is a new blending of philosophy with religion, of science with intuition. God as consciousness.
God is Consciousness
The God suggested by Quantum Physics is not the literal God of the scriptures, but the sophisticated and numinous God who is described within the scriptures; described through allegory and symbols, as well as anecdotally. There is a long tradition in the West of a God of Consciousness who resists literal descriptions dating back to Plato. Origen, one of the early church fathers, along with Augustine appropriated Platoâ€™s Idealism for Church doctrine. Later came Erigena and St. Gregory of Nyssa who integrated Neo-Platonist thought with Church dogma. And Thomas Aquinas who brought Aristotelian concepts within Church cannon, arguing that Reason was capable of operating within faith. Judaism and Islam as well have always valued rigorous Talmudic and Koranic debate about the interpretations of meaning within scripture. So, we see that Western theology has a long history of looking for the sophisticated God of meaning and intuition to back up, as it were, the more literal God of devotion. In other words, a path of wisdom. But in the West this tradition has been marginalized. It has never been taken up by the mainstream. It has never seeped into the consciousness of humankind, but rather has remained a debate or discussion among select theologians, philosophers and the odd enlightened scientist. In fact, ever since the codification of Church doctrine in the Medieval Ages, philosophy and religion have largely gone separate ways. To the mainstream mind, religion has become almost completely devotional, while philosophy, barely existent to the mainstream, has attempted to pick up the slack in its dealing with Reason and Meaning.
Theoretical Quantum Physicist Dr. Amit Goswami is a retired full professor from the University of Oregon’s Department of Physics where he served from 1968 to 1997. He is a pioneer of the new paradigm of science called “science within consciousness,” an idea he explicated in his seminal book, The Self-Aware Universe. Goswami has written several other popular books based on his research on quantum physics and consciousness including Physics of the Soul, The Quantum Doctor, Quantum Creativity, and The Everything Answer Book. In his private life Goswami is a practitioner of spirituality and transformation. He calls himself a quantum activist. http://www.amitgoswami.org
NDE “I believe that the greatest truths of the universe don’t lie outside, in the study of the stars and the planets. They lie deep within us, in the magniﬁcence of our heart, mind, and soul. Until we understand what is within, we can’t understand what is without.” – Anita Moorjani
After four heart-wrenching years with cancer, my body had ﬁnally had enough and I went into a coma.
As my husband rushed me to the hospital, the world around me started to appear surreal and dreamlike, and I could feel myself slip further and further away from consciousness.
In this near-death state, I was more acutely aware of all that was going on around me than I’d ever been in a normal physical state. I wasn’t using my ﬁve biological senses, yet I was keenly taking everything in. It was as though another, completely diﬀerent type of perception kicked in, and I seemed to encompass everything that was happening, as though I was slowly merging with it all.
“There’s nothing we can do for your wife, Mr. Moorjani. Her organs have already shut down. I watched as Danny’s face changed to anguish, and wanted to cry out to him.
It’s ok, darling—I’m okay! Please don’t worry. Don’t listen to the doctor. I actually feel great! But I couldn’t. Nothing came out. He couldn’t hear me.
dying to be me
I felt free, liberatedâ€¦
I felt no emotional attachment to my seemingly lifeless body as it lay there on the hospital bed. It didn’t feel as though it were mine. It looked far too small and insigniﬁcant to have housed what I was experiencing. I felt free, liberated, and magniﬁcent. Every pain, ache, sadness, and sorrow was gone! I felt completely unencumbered. I couldn’t recall feeling this way before—not ever. I CONTINUED TO SENSE MYSELF EXPANDING FURTHER AND FURTHER OUTWARD, DRAWING AWAY FROM MY PHYSICAL SURROUNDINGS. IT WAS AS THOUGH I WERE NO LONGER RESTRICTED BY THE CONFINES OF SPACE AND TIME, AND CONTINUED TO SPREAD MYSELF OUT TO OCCUPY A GREATER EXPANSE OF CONSCIOUSNESS. I SIMULTANEOUSLY EXPERIENCED A SENSE OF JOY MIXED WITH A GENEROUS SPRINKLING OF JUBILATION AND HAPPINESS. I felt all of my emotional attachments to my loved ones and my surroundings slowly fall away. What I can only describe as superb and glorious unconditional love surrounded me, wrapping me tight as I continued to let go. It didn’t feel as though I had physically gone somewhere else—it was more as though I’d awakened. Perhaps ﬁnally being roused from a bad dream.
My soul was finally realizing its true magnificence. And it doing so, it was expanding beyond my body and this physical world. The feeling of complete, unconditional love was unlike anything I’d known before; it was totally undiscriminating, as if I didn’t have to do anything to deserve it, nor did I need to prove myself to earn it.
To my amazement, I became aware of the presence of my father, who’d died ten years earlier. Dad, you’re here. I can’t believe it! I wasn’t speaking those words, I was merely thinking them—in fact, it was more like feeling the emotions behind the words, as there was no other way of communicating in that realm other than through emotions. And then I recognized the essence of my best friend, Soni, who’d died of cancer three years prior. I seemed to know that they’d been present with me, long before I became aware of them, all through my illness. I was also aware of other beings around me. I didn’t recognize them, but I knew they loved me very much and were protecting me. I realized that they too were with me all of this time, surrounding me with love even when I wasn’t conscious of it. My heightened awareness in that expanded realm was indescribable, despite my best eﬀorts to explain it. The universe makes sense! I realized. I ﬁnally understand—I know why I have cancer! I was too caught up in the wonder of that moment to dwell on the cause, although I’d soon examine it more closely. I also seemed to comprehend why I’d come into this life in the ﬁrst place—I knew my true purpose. Why do I suddenly understand all this? I wanted to know. Who’s giving me this information? Is it God? Krishna? Buddha? Jesus?
I suddenly understand
I saw my life intricately woven into everything I’d known so far. My experience was like a single thread woven through the huge and complexly colored images of an inﬁnite tapestry. All the other threads and colors represented my relationships, including every life I’d touched. There were threads representing my mother, my father, my brother, my husband, and every other person who’d ever come into my life, whether they related to me in a positive or negative way.
I began to understand that while I may have only been a thread, I was integral to the overall ﬁnished picture. Alexandra Nicolae/Unsplash
Seeing this, I understood that I owed it to myself, to everyone I met, and to life itself to always be an expression of my own unique essence. Trying to be anything or anyone else didn’t make me better—it just deprived me of my true self! It kept others from experiencing me for who I am, and it deprived me of interacting authentically with them.
I meet my unique essence
I WAS OVERWHELMED BY THE REALIZATION THAT GOD ISN’T A BEING, BUT A STATE OF BEING … AND I WAS NOW IN THAT STATE OF BEING.
the great tapestry
Truth As I looked at the great tapestry that was the accumulation of my life up to that point, I was able to identify exactly what had brought me to where I was today.
Just look at my life path! Why, oh why, have I always been so harsh with myself? Why was I always beating myself up? Why was I always forsaking myself? Why did I never stand up for myself and show the world the beauty of my own soul? Why was I always suppressing my own intelligence and creativity to please others? I betrayed myself every time I said yes when I meant no!
Why have I violated myself by always needing to seek approval from others just to be myself? Why haven’t I followed my own beautiful heart and spoken my truth? Why don’t we realize this when we’re in our physical bodies? How come I never knew that we’re not supposed to be so tough on ourselves?

Why Crystal Sound Is Deeply Healing?
â€¨ The human body is crystalline in structure, and the quartz crystal may have a deeply healing effect on our organs, muscles, tissues, and cells. Every tone and vibration emanating from the bowls provides a benefit through frequency and sound. Every musical note corresponds to an energy center in our body, aligning and balancing our human system.â€¨
Sound is the Medicine of Now
Quantum physics teaches that atoms are made of vortices of energy, each radiating its own energetic signature. From the level of an atom to the farthest reaches of the galaxy, everything in creation has a frequency. Every thought and feeling, every organ, every part of our body has a vibration, even every illness. When the vibration is in harmony with the rest of the body, we experience health. When it lacks harmony, we experience dis-ease.

Dr Todd Ovokaitys
New Frontiers Walk into the edge of where a new world is converging â€“ and allow you to experience amazing new breakthroughs that will define how the new human and the new world will operate.
A new, multidimensional science is emerging that understands energy Dr. Todd Ovokaitys is a global pioneer, who is redefining the underlying science related to agriculture, pharma, health, longevity and consciousness, A new, multidimensional science is emerging that understands energy â€“ in many forms â€“ as being the building blocks for everything we experience. The process of shaping that energy, whether with light or sound, can have profound implications on how you feel, the state of your health, how long you live . . . and how the world around you responds. Dr. Todd is a leading proponent of using specialized lasers, which he co-developed, for improving agricultural yields and nutrient density to feed the world with better food and increasing health and physical well-being. The results are profound and immediately call into question traditional concepts that have been the core of our understanding of how biology works. At the level of quantum understanding, everything in the universe is simply waves and vibrations. The production of particular tones and overtones may therefore directly tap into a deeper level of quantum reality. One of the most deep-seated experiences you can have is the realization that your cells sing a wondrous angelic chorale symphony. Hearing, attuning to, and singing along with the song of your cells can bring you healing, balance and awareness expansion.
Dr Todd Ovokaitys Dr. Todd Ovokaitys (or Dr. Todd, as he is called) was formally educated at Northwestern University, where he was 1st in his class of 1800 with a 4.0 GPA. From Northwestern, he was accepted into a combined, accelerated undergraduate/medical school program at the highly esteemed Johns Hopkins University. Following this training he completed an Internship, Residency, and Chief Medical Residency in the Georgetown University Hospital System. This was followed by a two year Fellowship in Pulmonary and Intensive Care Medicine, also at Georgetown University Hospital. At Georgetown, Dr. Todd participated in formal studies of T cell immune function after harvesting lymphocytes from the lung via fiber optic bronchoscopy. In addition, this training involved intensive care of many persons afflicted with HIV infection, as the lung is a common target following the immunologic breakdown of this condition. Aware of the extreme limitations of treating HIV through ordinary conventional means, Dr. Todd began a search for less intrusive solutions. The concept of using the subtle differences of genetic organization between the viral and human genomes was the launch point for exploring new avenues of molecular resonance technologies. In concept, the slight differences of resonance signatures between the viral and human genomes could be used to selectively target and eliminate infected parts of cells leaving uninfected normal cells unharmed. After studying the background work on the effects of electromagnetic radiation on living systems, Dr. Todd commissioned a colleague with the expertise to design and build a fundamentally new laser electromagnetic resonance technology. This new laser optical technology has been patented worldwide as U.S. #6,064,500 (worldwide patent WO97/22022) and U.S. #6,811,564,B1 (worldwide patent WO02/02187). Dr. Todd's invention is now being used in the potentiation of nutrients and offers alternative medicine and well-being a very bright future. www.gematria.com
