“We have finally started to notice that

there is real curative value in local herbs and remedies. In fact, we are also becoming aware that there are

little or no side effects to most natural remedies, and that they are often more effective than Western

medicine.� Anne Wilson Schaef Ph.D.

Turmeric

Relief for Rheumatoid Arthritis Clinical studies have substantiated that curcumin also exerts very powerful antioxidant effects. As an antioxidant, curcumin is able to neutralize free radicals, chemicals that can travel through the body and cause great damage to healthy cells and cell membranes. This is important in many diseases, such as arthritis, where free radicals are responsible for the painful joint inflammation and eventual damage to the joints.

Cancer Prevention

A Potent, Yet Safe Anti-Inflammatory The volatile oil fraction of turmeric has demonstrated significant anti-inflammatory activity in a variety of experimental models. Even more potent than its volatile oil is the yellow or orange pigment of turmeric, which is called curcumin. Curcumin is thought to be the primary pharmacological agent in turmeric. In numerous studies, curcumin's antiinflammatory effects have been shown to be comparable to the potent drugs hydrocortisone and phenylbutazone as well as over-the-counter antiinflammatory agents such as Motrin. Unlike the drugs, which are associated with significant toxic effects, curcumin produces no toxicity.

Boosts Amyloid Plaque Clearance in Human Alzheimer's Patients Using blood samples from Alzheimer's patients, Drs. Milan Fiala and John Cashman have shown that curcumin boosts macrophage activity to normal levels, helping to clear amyloid beta. They also observed that curcumin was more effective in promoting the clearance of amyloid beta in some patients' blood than others, hinting at a genetic element. Further study revealed the genes involved are also responsible for a number of other key immune functions. Curcumin enhances the transcription of these genes, correcting the immune defects seen in Alzheimer's patients. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2007 Jul 31;104(31):12849-54.

Curcumin's antioxidant actions enable it to protect the colon cells from free radicals that can damage cellular DNA창"a significant benefit particularly in the colon where cell turnover is quite rapid, occurring approximately every three days. Because of their frequent replication, mutations in the DNA of colon cells can result in the formation of cancerous cells much more quickly. Curcumin also helps the body to destroy mutated cancer cells, so they cannot spread through the body and cause more harm. A primary way in which curcumin does so is by enhancing liver function. Additionally, other suggested mechanisms by which it may protect against cancer development include inhibiting the synthesis of a protein thought to be instrumental in tumor formation and preventing the development of additional blood supply necessary for cancer cell growth.

The studies A whole book could be written on the many benefits of using turmeric, though I wanted to share a few key studies so that you may better understand why incorporating this ageless ingredient can benefit you and your entire family. There's some debate about the timing of turmeric's first use as a healthy spice. But one thing is certain. Thousands of years ago, people in India and China used the spice. In fact, some stories suggest usage dates back 10,000 years in India. So now you may be asking yourself how can you incorporate it into your home. Here are some of the numerous suggestions available. Also be sure to read about the precautions as this spice is powerful and can interact with prescriptions and we want you to be well informed on all the aspects of using Turmeric in your life!

Natural Home Remedies Precautions The use of herbs is a time-honored approach to strengthening the body and treating disease. Herbs, however, can trigger side effects and may interact with other herbs, supplements, or medications. For these reasons, you should take herbs with care, under the supervision of a health care provider. Turmeric in food is considered safe. People who have gallstones or obstruction of the bile passages should talk to their doctor before taking turmeric. If you have diabetes, talk to your doctor before taking turmeric supplements. Turmeric may lower blood sugar levels, and when combined with medications for diabetes could cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).

Natural Home Remedies

Whether your in clean up mode from the summer just past, or getting ready for your first heat wave, these home remedies are sure to relive the unwelcome visitors that come with fun in the sun. Mold and mildew love the humid weather, and unless you have central air you may have found these addition in your home. Not only are these visitors unwelcome, but they have also been found to be a source of some serious mood swings, including depression. There are plenty of ways to address these visitors. Excess moisture in your home is their breeding ground. If you find areas with high amount of mold or mildew check the area for water leaks. Though there are natural ways to clean mold and mildew, it will not stop the growth if excess water is the cause. One natural way of treating damp areas in your home is with Silica. This is something we receive for free in many items we purchase. These packets are reusable, and natural. Though there is an additional substance that is not natural, some packets include beads that are blue when dry, pink when damp. Placing packets in shoes, pockets and camera cases are just a few ways to keep moisture out of important products. Silica can be baked when damp and reused. If you are unsure on how to safely take this step, ehow.com has plenty of direction on the best baking procedures.

There is also a wonderful plant family called genus tillandsia that thrives in damp, humid areas. This plant pulls moisture from the air, and does not require soil. Adding a few to your bathroom and near the kitchen sink will not only assist with reducing moisture, but will be pleasant to look at and easy to care for. So now that you have done all your water leak checks, removed excess moisture and used moisture control, there is still the issue of the mold and mildew already in your home from all the damp conditions. Now to get rid of it! Most of these natural products can already be found in our home. There are also a few that you may not have, but are easily purchasable. It all depends on your budget as to which method you may want to choose. 11


Natural Home Remedies

White Vinegar

Lemon Juice and Salt

Though the smell can be a little much for some it won’t last long, but it does kill both mold and mildew. Add straight white vinegar to a spray bottle and apply to the area, you can allow it to air dry or wipe away after 10 to 15 minutes. This is also the most inexpensive way to naturally treat mold and mildew.

When fabrics are stained with mildew, make a paste of lemon juice and salt, and rub it on the affected area. Dry the clothes in sunlight. Repeat this process until the stain is gone. Include baking soda and make a paste for tough grout stains.

Grapefruit Seed Extract Spray Add 20 drops of grapefruit seed extract to one cup of water. Spray on affected areas and allow to dry. The bonus to using this mixture is that there is no heavy odor.

3% Hydrogen Peroxide Spray Spray peroxide on affected area and let air dry.

Tea Tree Oil This is the most effective treatment for mold and mildew, as tea tree oil is a natural fungicide. The down side is the strong odor it leaves behind, though it will dissipate in a few days. Add one teaspoon of oil for each cup of water. Spray on affected area and do not wipe it off. 12

Abundance is A-Fun-Dance! Earlier today I was going through a bit of overwhelm. I thought: Oh my goodness - I have deadlines, my regular daily biz tasks, animal care (for my six fur-and scale-babies), food to cook, coursework to study for the certification course I am currently enrolled in, blog posts to write, plans to map out for future projects, and work to do on my current projects - not to mention the usual laundry, dishes, sweeping of fur balls...and oh, yes, add self-care in there as well! Well, my body revolted. It turns out I felt really, really sleepy too sleepy to focus - unless I was doing something fun. During the fun stuff I woke up, and felt more energized. Hmm! When I sat down to concentrate on my "most important biz tasks," I ended up staring at the computer screen reading the same paragraph over and over. That’s when I knew I had to adjust to what my body, mind and soul were trying to tell me! Art by Carol Cavalaris

So‌I popped in a CD of channeled shamanic music, lit some sage, doused the room with lavender oil and did some ecstatic dancing. 15


I realized, wait - where do I come off trying to run a “straight” business without built-in pleasure factors? I am, after all, an Abundance Specialist - and FUN is a part of abundance! Abundance is A-Fun-Dance! Silly me - I realized a part of my energy had been stuck in “Serious-ville” - the place where old 1980’s suited-up business professionals have gone to retire. That’s okay! I’m not judging myself. We learn when we learn. “Yah don’t know something till yah know it,” I always say! Now that I know it, I’ve made the decision to lighten up. Stuff will get done, and stuff will get done BETTER the less I worry about it! Tonight I have been adding in huge doses of PLAY. Then, suddenly, boom! The inspiration for this article came along. Funny how things have a way of working themselves out when we take ourselves lightly! Will you join me in A-Fun-Dance? I’d be honored!

ARE YOUR VIBRATIONS HELPING OR HURTING YOU? Your personal vibration frequency could be the ONE thing holding you back from abundance, happiness and success. Discover how to raise it, so you can finally start living from the vibration of Love or Above. Just like how seismographs are used to measure earthquakes, recent breakthroughs have allowed researchers to measure a person’s energetic frequency on a specific Vibrations Scale. How does the scale work? Well imagine you have a scale of 1 to 1,000, with 1,000 being the highest state a human being can attain. If you reach this level you would be an Enlightened Master. At the lowest end of the spectrum is someone who is not thriving at all. Researchers use muscle testing and kinesiology to determine where people are on this scale. As you can see, heavy emotions like sadness, guilt or humiliation vibrate at low frequencies, while feelings like love, bliss and enlightenment vibrate at high, uplifting frequencies. Many clients have reported experiencing:

Dramatic improvements in their relationships and love lives, with stronger feelings of empathy and trust, and the elimination of unnecessary guilt and shame.

Enhanced wealth and abundance by developing a healthy wealth mindset, a stronger intuition for saving and investing, and a stronger natural attraction of wealth.

Promotions and raises at work as a result of knowing exactly what career is in line with their life purpose, connecting better with colleagues, and using their creativity to get better ideas.

Improved physical and mental wellbeing by learning how to understand the signs their bodies give them, and developing a habit of making healthy lifestyle choices.

“When you want something, all the universe

conspires in helping you achieve it.” –Paulo Coelho lot of subtleties, undercurrents and answers to the surface. You will know what to do, if you listen to your inner voice… your higher self. Just remember that you can always turn inward, and the answers are there. The Sun shifting into the sign of Libra followed by a new moon in Libra on October 4th will also bring out the socialite in you. It’s time for a little fun! We follow up all that air with a fire full moon. The full moon in Aries on October 18th is also a lunar eclipse. This brings a little extra boost to that already fiery Aries full moon. Aries simplifies things, and maybe the answers were just far too simple; you looked right past them. Now you can see how simple things can truly be. This full moon will bring back the joy and laughter. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and it is very symbolic of new beginnings. This fiery, cardinal sign brings in laughter, playfulness, passion and will spark a lot of new ideas. Take some time to have fun, and appreciate those you care for in your life. Aries is about fun, so live it up! Have a bonfire in celebration of fall, harvest and the end of a beautiful summer. Aries reminds us that we all have to take some time for ourselves. Libra had us take a closer look at all the things that were out of balance a few weeks ago, and Aries can help us follow through with what is best for us, individually. Aries will give us that extra push to pursue what we want for our lives; it does not matter what others think; Aries’ motto is I AM. Hold your ground with who you are, and what you stand for. Aries tells you to express yourself, and have fun while doing it! Sometimes we need to laugh at ourselves too, so don’t take yourself too seriously. The darker qualities of Aries could bring out your selfish, pushy or

demanding side; be aware of this energy in the air, and you will avoid conflicts easily. Enjoy the company of friends and family, and think of new ways you can react to old things. You will be amazed at how smoothly things will go when you follow through with keeping out those toxins that Libra, angel of justice, cut out. Aries is ruled by Mars, and therefore has fiery qualities of drive and action. Mars makes things happen; it’s a planet of doing. After that long period of internal thoughts and psychic clues, now is the time for action. Aries may be just what you need to demand more balance from a relationship that is out of whack, or it may be just what is needed to bring in that well deserved, light-hearted, playful passion that makes us feel younger, and lighter than air. Mercury goes retrograde on October 21st. Try to get most of those bills and all that paperwork stamped and mailed before this retrograde. Money, communication and travel can tend to go on the fritz during Mercury retrogrades, just plan accordingly, and you may only run into mild miscommunications. Of course, Virgos and Gemini’s tend to be affected a bit more during these times as it rules both those signs, but with planning (a forte of both Virgo and Gemini) one can lessen the blow. This may have an impact on all those goals and plans you have set for yourself; don’t worry. Any setbacks felt in October will all be a distant memory at the end of November. Mercury retrogrades will often get you feeling nostalgic and thinking about the past. While you’re thinking about all those old friends and relationships, why not throw a party or have a night out to celebrate all the new connections you’ve made? Remind yourself to have fun. Don’t get bogged down by

? Social media has become so much more than sharing favorite pictures with your friends. In today’s market, if you’re not online you are barley a blip on the radar screen. Most of us have taken the time to set up Facebook or Twitter accounts, but you may have overlooked the social site that is truly business oriented. There is a reason CEO’s from all the top companies have a LinkedIn account. We want you to show you just how to use this social media avenue for all it is worth!

With over 2.5 million users and growing, LinkedIn gains 170,000+ new members daily! But what is it all about? Many people use LinkedIn as a wonderful business to business tool, but there is so much more to be utilized. 20% of top-level executives on social media sites use them to promote their businesses, compared to 13% of middle management, and 6% of entry-level workers. One of the most powerful uses for any business is LinkedIn's searchability, 77% of LinkedIn members use the site to research people and companies, 69% to reconnect with past business associates and 50% use it to build new networks.

There are 7,610 searches on LinkedIn per minute. 22


Can your next potential client or customer find you? Users of LinkedIn have an average household income of $83,000 per year and twice the purchasing power of the average U.S. consumer. By comparison, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that in 2011, the real median household income in the U.S. (adjusted for inflation) was $50,054, which is also the most recent data available. Your average user has more purchasing power and knows how to search for the business they are looking for, but if you don’t have a business listed you are missing out on some huge purchase power! Unlike other social media sites, LinkedIn features your business, achievements, and recommendations from colleagues. You can add any additional information you would like about your current projects, classes, and even your YouTube videos.

There are some major keys involved in making sure your LinkedIn profile is going to meet the standards of your high end clientele. Making sure you look professional, presentable, and adept in your business is key to taking a bite out of LinkedIn, being the largest social media visitor to lead conversion rate!

Making 15 minutes worth of updates and changes can assist you in seeing a dramatic increase in connections! It might sound basic, but it starts with you profile picture. Let’s face it, we have all taken a picture of ourselves and sometimes really love how it looks, but that

won’t cut it for this profile! Taking the time to use a professional photo is extremely important. This first impression is make or break. If you have the ability to have a professional photo taken, use it! Skipping your photo is just as bad; potential clients want to know who they are dealing with, if you just don’t have a professional photo use your company logo, if you don’t have either then this is your stepone assignment! Using your name, as it is shown on your business cards, is important. You want potential clients and friends to find you, and this simple step makes it easy. The first line below your name is your title, company name or information you would like to highlight. The things that you do, 23

“Sirius”

is a feature length documentary that follows Dr. Steven Greer – an Emergency Medicine doctor turned UFO/ New Energy researcher – as he struggles to disclose top secret information about classified energy & propulsion techniques. Along the way, Dr. Greer investigates new technology and sheds light on criminal suppression. He accumulates over 100 Government, Military, and Intelligence Community witnesses who testify on record about their first-hand experiences with UFOs and with the cover-up. In the course of his research Dr. Greer is asked to look at an amazing find: a humanoid specimen, 6 inches long from the Atacama Desert. Not until 2012 was he given permission to take bone samples and DNA from the specimen. At that same time a pre-eminent geneticist, hearing of this find, offered to do DNA testing. He enlisted an MD from the same university,- world renowned for his work with skeletal anomalies, to view the x-rays and CT scans. Their expertise along with Dr. Greer’s expansive knowledge of the subject bring more questions than answers. Where did this “Atacama Humanoid” come from? Are there others like it? What does it say about the origin of the human species? While on this odyssey, the audience gains a whole new perspective on technology, human evolution, and clandestine organizations who have manipulated and controlled the public for centuries.

That really is it! The average persons attention must be grabbed in 30 seconds or they move on. So your first words need to call out to the part of them that says “I need to know more!!” If you are using the same phrases and headlines your not doing your business justice! Try a few headlines for one event and take note of the one’s getting peoples attention! There are many ways to advertise but the number one best way is still word of mouth. Getting your current clients talking about you absolutely helps to gain more clients. Offering your current clients a freebie is a way to help them help you. Bring a friend for free day for reoccurring classes or bring a friend and get half off for one time classes will bring in more people and more business!

effective ways to bring business in. Learning when and how to write these emails would be a class on it’s own, but don’t worry about the how just yet! Get started immediately with gathering emails if you haven’t already, this is a source of free advertising and if you are missing out, it is costing you big bucks! Give an incentive for clients to sign up in class or at your store, offer an immediate $2 off this purchase or free gift (maybe an organic chap stick or stone), everyone loves a freebie!

The average consumer needs to see your service or product 7 times before they make a purchase! This is one of those truths most people don’t want to know as advertisers, but think of the last time you made a purchase of something big. Did you hear about it just once? Mostly likely you heard about it many times, maybe from an ad or announcement, then a friend mentioned it, you saw another ad, and

discussed it with someone. You thought about it and finally saw another ad and acted upon it! So what does this mean for your advertising campaigns?

Building a Campaign First you must build a full campaign! Create a series of emails and ads to use across all platforms. Doing this yourself is fairly simple or you can hire a student if you’re on a budget. The trick to building a great campaign is matching all the themes, you want the color scheme to stay the same throughout so it is recognizable to someone who has already seen this offer elsewhere. This assists in brand awareness and if you have a logo it should be on everything! Yes even in your emails! Keep ads, emails and event listings short and sweet. Letting people know a few key things

about the event is better than telling them everything about it. When people feel like they know everything that is going on at the event then they feel like they don’t need to go they already know it all. Also with today’s much shorter attention span, if you are not giving away very important, life (or business) changing advise most people will not get to the end of the 3rd line never mind the end of the email!

Use tactics that worked on you. Think again of some of your purchases. What caught your eye? Building something from the ground up is time consuming. There is nothing wrong with using idea’s from big companies and favorites from services you use and share! Take a look at the ads within this magazine alone may help you get started. For 27

This month's piece is brought to you by Archangel Metatron and Naminon What is it Metatron, that you most want to share with in the lives of others. people at this moment in time? It is now time for 'all there is' to reconnect to the Earth Naminon and myself want you all to feel light at heart. energies that are all around you. Time to kick off your To realize, every day, that you are able to touch a shoes, and walk slowly and gently in some grass, on flower, smell grasses growing freely around you, sense the sand; slog through some mud, to climb high up on the light touching your head and the backs of your a hill overlooking the ocean, or just take off your hands, is another day to feel happiness at being alive. sandals, and rest your feet comfortably on a strip of grass outside of one's apartment house. Not everything has a learning curve. Some things are just to be enjoyed for what they are, and how they can Life nowadays does not usually involve letting one's make you feel during that particular moment. There is a feet walk unfettered through tall grasses. It is for this wonderful vibration which emanates from each living reason that nerve disorders become worse during fall thing. Can any of you sense it? Each living thing is and winter months, and recede somewhat during the interconnected. hot sunny months of summer. If we are all One, says Metatron, and we are all connected then the lines in this bedroom are eventually going to touch energetically to every truck stop, every cup of coffee served, all tornados and lightning bolts which roll over hillsides and cause destruction and mayhem whenever they can. And if we are all one, then lives lost overseas will move into the Light and sometimes into our hearts as well. Being part and parcel of Oneness does not mean perfection. It means giving one's all to learning how to work in a partnership with those around you, and you may fall down sometimes. You may fail to recognize the Light in others and they in you. As they say....We live and learn...' This Oneness is not transparent for if it were, there would be nothing new to learn and no real surprises in life. "We are one..." really means that we will pull together when times get tough, and we will try to love one another and be there through the difficult times. Think of the Tower of Babel, of the parting of the Red Sea, and in this century, think of the Holocaust... What is it that holds mankind together when all around them life is exploding and falling apart? It is One's faith, One's love, One's connection to something better than his or her self. Yes, One person can make a difference

What about people who live in urban areas, and cannot easily find clean grass to walk upon? What can they do to reduce pain levels in their bodies by themselves? Pain levels can be reduced using a combination of shamanic techniques and visualization exercises. One only needs to set an intention and follow the instructions that can be found in any number of websites or books. Simple intentions are the best such as "Please show me my relaxation center; the place that I can return to, over and over, to reduce my stress, feel pleasure, and to help remove any pains in my body." Would you give us some easy steps for the lay person to follow? Sometimes Metatron, pain can be acute, and it is hard to distance one's self from said pains. Yes, we can see that in the beginning, getting started on a new path such as this one can be hard for the uninitiated. So, let's start with just sitting on a bed or in your comfortable chair. Make sure that you have removed all footwear. Flex both feet and fingertips, if possible, in all directions. Do windmills with your feet. Move your head in circles a few times. Try stretching out your arms reaching for the sky once or twice in the process. 31

Connecting to our Generational Lives Š with Maryfaith You are doing this so as to be ready for your shamanic trip. The Lord God protects all who knowingly choose to work in accordance with Divine Will/ the will of God and your I AM presence/ your Higher Self, and if what you choose to do is for the good of all concerned...you will find success and prosper. Hello all, Naminon here, we will be talking now!

below the earth plane are still part and parcel of it. As long as there is an emotional vibrational charge; as long as said Earth energies overlap and energetically touch each other then it is possible for everyone to connect through the shamanic powers of the mind with your earth energies.

We realize that today's info session is filled with all kinds of twists and turns, many of which you were Find a comfortable position and flex fingertips, toes, probably not expecting! Well, there is going to more arms and legs. Allow energies from source to course up of that to come and it is coming next... and down your body. When you flex, your energies move, and start to open up and become more receptive Now we must bring into play something that Maryfaith to interacting with earth energy. has been familiar with for quite some time. She was originally given this tool to use with her Shamballa What are earth energies? Let us just say that the earth is energy healing/ psychic reading clients way back in composed of ley lines, sight lines, axiatonal lines, the year 2000. In 13- years, Maryfaith has only meridians, earth chakras or soul level power points. It channeled information regarding some aspects/usage is topography, geography, air pockets, office of this healing tool, with one other individual and that buildings, cottages, rain spouts, arid regions, kittens, person was her Shamballa Basic teacher who feral creatures, circuit breakers which connect developed a line of vibrational essences called electrical energies, laughter, anger, all languages and Generational Lives essences. Now it is time to go all cultures etc... In other words, all that is above and further. To swing full circle, and allow everyone to 32


access their Generational Lives. Generational Lives are all of the lives that you were originally linked to through out your life in the past, present and future. These are NOT the same as past lives. (Your past lives may refer to who you once were in a previous life.) Generational Lives are all of the people whom you have been linked to AND their generational lives as well. They can be used as a tool for others to access the memories stored in the Akashic Records. Each individual has the power to be complete and whole. All of us have the means to connect. The time is NOW. We all may seem to exist within separate time frames, however this is not really so. There is a thin wall here, but it just takes a gentle touch with one's mind to release its boundaries. Alright, to become one within the framework of our world involves being able to take a giant step forward and a giant step backwards, as well, through the Records of All Time. Who you are and where you may be trying to go can be found embedded and instilled within The Timepiece of the Inner Mind. An inner mind can be likened to a giant storehouse. Its realms house all knowledge relating to the natural consequences involving all of your present and past lives; all information revolving back and forth, like a doorway, to the unconscious mind. It can reveal time segments, directions to your consciousness, inner inhibitions, relaxation techniques etc... Basically the "timepiece of the inner mind" allows you to access all thoughts and knowledge that YOUR ancestors- who are OUR ancestors, have imparted to this world. The timepiece works hand in hand with all generational lives. It is a complete record of where you have been- not just in this lifetime, but through many generations. It lets you tap into be-ings who would normally be way beyond your normal thought waves. We only ask that you stay open to allowing your "inner clock" to roam freely between worlds." Please share with me how others can access The Timepiece of the Inner Mind in an easy to follow fashion? You can all start by downloading the codes that go along with this tool. They are easily accessed by each person. They only need to put their hands on their hearts, and call down all of their Generational Lives. Ask that they be inputted, on a soul level, into their physical bodies. Just say "If it is in my highest good, I call in all of my

Generational Lives past, present and future, to join with me on a soul level. Help me to 'see' what needs to be seen, 'hear' what needs to be heard and 'do' what needs to be done for the good of myself, and for all of mankind." Okay, Hello Metatron. Hello Naminon. I would like to speak with and access all of my GL's past, present and future...Please tell me which ones you want to share with me. What is most important for others to know about generational lives? Steve who is a lawyer from one of my lives in the year 2416 asks to be recognized at this time: "Generational Lives," says Steve, "are intricately wrapped up in multiple lives. Not just here in your world, but in ours as well. We can 'see' into your past and learn from our/your ancestral lives. They are linear in nature and in guise. The Timepiece of the Inner Mind is a tool that you can utilize to travel backwards or forwards in a quest to receive answers. In our case, we regard our conversation to you as integral as using DNA filaments in the human body. It is just one kind of muscle memory that can be shared within generations of people." How can you answer my questions or anyone else’s for that manner? "Charlotte from 1730 here. I am one of your connection's to a pre-spiritual nature…One to magic…To being tough under pressure…To looking beneath the surface of all things. We are all woven together. You only need to ask to connect, on a soul level, to the Timepiece of the Inner Minds of all of your generational lives, and one of us or all of us will speak to you via a mouthpiece. A channel if need be. The timepiece denotes different eras or time periods that can be accessed through the use of one's psychic abilities." Cool! I will try asking another question as an experiment: May I please connect, on a soul level, to all of my GL's past, present and future that can share with me what would be the best all around crystal to use to remove toxins in an environment? (As Maryfaith I am seeing the following scenario in my mind's eye). I see a brown shuttered house, with a white fence around it. There is a stream moving thru the backyard with wild strawberries growing nearby it. The year seems to be 1924. A large pig is grunting in the background. I get the impression that this GL only wants to direct me to the crystal, and doesn't want any other contact with me. I am shown some Mica being reflected to me in the water of the stream. It is in thin layers. 33


In the real world, I went online and looked up Mica, and this is part of what I found: "Mica is part of a group of minerals. It has reflective qualities to recognize flaws, and see them with love. It is used to diminish anger, hostility and nervous energy." So it looks like the Generational life from 1924 was not that far off in finding a crystal to combat toxins. Let's try another one: " May I connect on a soul level to all of my generational lives, past, present and future that can share with me what is most important for all of us to know in regards to this tool? "It is not as difficult to understand as you all think. We are all here on the psychic pipeline. We, too, work in tandem with All There Is. We can be your spiritual teachers or just friends to lend an ear or an idea that may help to solve an enigma in your lives. This is Frankincense from your present life, located in Oregon, and a farmer. On a soul level we are connected through your love of plants." Thanks Frank. So you are saying that this process can be easily learned? "Bonnard-My name is Bonnard, and I am French. Frankincense is gone. I am here thru a connection with your grandfather, James Cleary, and it is important that we share a few more facts: The timepiece of the inner mind is not a hard tool to access. It is easy enough once a person learns to trust what they are either hearing, seeing or feeling from Source. Your world uses so many different communication devices that this one should seem like a snap! Very easy to learn, and no small pieces to worry about."

3) Please give me your first name, whether you are from my past, present or future lives, and the year if possible. 4) You may see images of another time, may hear voices and/or be shown utensils that might be used in this other world in ways that are opposite of what they may be used for in 2013. Colors may seem more vibrant as well. This is the timepiece of the inner mind that you are visiting. It is a safe location that can be used to access just what you may need at this particular moment in your lives! Just remember that accessing the Timepiece of the Inner Mind and connecting to your Generational Lives will take time and practice to get down pat. Set aside a few moments each day to 'chat' with your lives. Lastly, please remember to thank them for coming through on your behalf because they want to help you out in any way that they can. However, keep in mind that their words are not set in stone. They are offering you their opinions. How you use the information passed onto you is your own responsibility and no one else’s. With more intense work in this arena, one can access deeper levels in the timepiece of the inner mind including those of your guides and guardians, but that is the stuff of another channeling. In using and sharing this information, please credit Maryfaith Goessling of Energies from Source Healing Center as being the originator of The Timepiece of the Inner Mind and of Generational Lives.

Here is a summary of the steps: 1) Get into a meditative state, and put your hands on your heart chakra. Then ask to be connected to all of your Generational Lives past, present and future: "I ask that my Generational Lives be inputted on a soul level into my body at this time. Help me to 'see' what needs to be seen, 'hear' what needs to be heard and 'do' what needs to be done for the good of myself and of all mankind." 2) Pose a question to your Generational Lives: "May I connect, on a soul level, to all of my GL's past, present and future that can share with me (Ask your question here)... Examples: -What is most important to know at this time? -Who might my life partner be? -Where should I turn to, to get funding for my business? -What is the best color to wear today?

Maryfaith Goessling is the owner and operator of Energies from Source Healing Center. Maryfaith is a master healer of the modality formally known as Shamballa BasicMDH and offers chakra balancing sessions, channeled psychic readings, soul-level dowsing, a monthly healing circle and much more at her space in Jamaica Plain, MA.

From Stage IV to Center Stage By Denise DeSimone A story of extraordinary courage, strength, and deep spirituality. Denise DeSimone's journey began the moment she opened her eyes in a post-op ward after a "routine" biopsy to determine the pathology of the lump on her neck and was told, "You have cancer. A very aggressive cancer in your

throat and neck, and you need to move on this immediately." Denise approached cancer differently than most people do. She chose not to "battle," cancer; she chose to embrace it and allow it to become her teacher and her sage. Naming her cancer PIN--an acronym for Pain in the Neck, Denise entered into a dialogue with PIN, gave it a pen, and gave it permission to teach her the lessons she needed to learn. The lessons were rich and enlightening. She learned something deeply critical to healing: self-love. When we love ourselves, we don't want to battle anything. When we love ourselves, we allow our vibration to attract life at a higher frequency: a frequency

that promotes healing on all levels--emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. Denise learned that self love is the all-time greatest healer. Read reviews here.

Zero Point : Volume I - Messages From The Past Full Movie Messages from the Past features Graham Hancock, David Wilcock, Terrence McKenna and more, The film focuses on a hidden episode in human history,

unlocking the secrets of the precession of the Equinoxes and its significance. Zero Point uncovers the messages expressed through ancient monuments worldwide,

examines various maps, and artifacts. These seem to reveal great secrets about the nature of time, our past, and our future. It seems we are approaching a point in time

known as the singularity, what does it all mean? How does it connect to Precession? We are missing a huge chunk of our history that could pave the way for a prosperous future, firstly we have to convince the masses that we are not the culmination of our culture, that we share a unique bond with the universe that cannot be understood until we grasp the practicalities of how certain monuments were constructed, why they were constructed and the message

encoded in their construction. Going beyond the material we must also gain an understanding of ancient divinatory systems and how they can give us an insight into the physics of time itself, if time was the landscape that the ancients mapped then what were they trying to tell us?

The Transcendental Meditation® program:

Bondage and Liberation with Janet Hoffman

W

hat is the quality of a life for a person who is in bondage to illusion, to karma, to ignorance—it is a life filled with suffering. This is a discussion and intellectual examination of the potential we all have for enlightenment, and the liberation of our nature from the field of suffering.

motivation to action, and causes identification with the world of action. Therefore they believe that desire, in all it’s forms, must be denied and repressed.

Liberation is achieved when the consciousness of the individual innocently locates the eternal non-changing Unity of life as the Supreme Reality of life within oneself and within all manifest creation. The individual mind identifies with the eternal unity of life. In this state, change rides within non-change as waves on an ocean—their only reality founded in their source of pure eternal consciousness.

Denying thought, desire, or action may cause stress because it is our nature and the nature of life to progress toward fulfillment. Rather than denying our desires, one has only to transcend the field of action and perception from any point within it to innocently experience the aspect of our life that is infinite and unbounded—the field of ultimate fulfillment within us. When the mind repeatedly transcends activity, just with a simple shift of attention, then it gets more and more saturated with it’s unbounded value and fulfillment results. This liberation of the mind is complete when our unbounded universal Self is maintained, even along with thought and activity, as a permanent feature of daily life.

In order to see the mistake in this orientation toward liberation, one must first consider that the omnipresent value of life must be ubiquitous…it can be found everywhere and anywhere. Searching for Bondage in Sanskrit is Pragyaparadh. Pragya-aparadh means "mistake of the intellect." The intellect, with the task one’s unbounded nature is like searching for our glasses through our glasses. They are not lost, but of discriminating between "this" and "that", is constantly when the glasses are pointed out, our attention comes engaged in Pragya-aparadh (i.e., identifying with the part to them, and we have the experience of “finding” and losing the whole). Consciousness of boundaries them. Finding them just means they have come into predominates over the ultimate, pervasive reality that all boundaries are appearances or waves of boundlessness. In our awareness. In the same way, the omnipresent Reality of Life is everywhere, but we say it is bondage, the essential Unity of life is hidden, and the changing aspects of life seem real. All suffering is attributed transcendental because our awareness is not open to it. to this mistaken identification.

There is a fundamental mistake that pervades the teachings that emphasize self-denial as a means of deliverance from bondage. These schools of thought and the teachers that expound them believe that action binds the actor, and that one loses one’s infinite identity by pursuing finite goals. They believe that desire is the

This liberation is provided by the regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique — which effortlessly and systematically brings the mind from it’s most active bound level of experience to finer levels and then to the transcendent state of pure awareness — and it’s alternation with daily activity. The obstacles of the mind’s ability to recognize it’s infinite stature are stress and lack of the use of full brain potential. However long it takes to eliminate stress and strain—that is how long it takes for liberation to replace bondage in our experience. Thinking of enlightenment is hallucination or mood-making — the reality of enlightenment is irrelevant of belief, intellectual understanding, or mood. In fact, our physical structure is completely involved in the process of liberation. The Transcendental Meditation technique has been experienced subjectively by over six million people, and verified objectively by over 360 peer-reviewed published research studies, to be a systematic way of removing stress and culturing the full potential of human life. The TM technique is a universally applicable, effortless path from bondage to liberation.

Hello Friends, Our name is Nathaniel and we are a group of spirit beings channeled by Brett Clauson. There are 8 of us but we speak as one. (Brett would go nuts if all 8 of us spoke at the same time). Brett has given us the shortened name of Nate - which we like and which you may too use. The names that create our group are: Natalie Anne Thomas Healy Ann Nathaniel Ianellie & Lynn We are glad, as well as Brett, for you to read our words. And we thank Rebecca very much for asking Brett to participate.in this co-creation. Brett asked us to connect with him, which we have done. Both on a human and a soul plane. When he first connected with us before this human body came about, he asked that we take him via the short road to his own successes on this earthly plane. We led him first to a coach named Monique and second to Rebecca, so that he could expand his skills and ideals. But most of all, to share our teachings with you. As with anything it takes practice to channel. Brett will be teaching you a great deal about the way that we work and how you, the audience, can channel and enhance your lives through a spirit connection, as Brett has been learning about.

At the moment Brett channels us through feelings and as he practices this he finds that his own feelings about life change. He becomes stronger, but also more powerful. At the same time his fears come to the surface and he has to learn to face them in a new way. He cannot always do this alone and uses a coach to help him. But most of the time, as you too will learn, he can do this through a direct connection to us. Spirits are here to help you and guide you to a balanced way of life. Do not be afraid, Dear Ones, of reaching out and asking for help with anything. And if it appears that we do not answer, always remember that sometimes answers are silent but potent! We do not always reach out in seemingly open ways, but often work 'underground' in the mind and in the heart to allow new realizations of life to rise up to the surface and to be more and more seen. We are not here to change you but to show you how to change yourself and that means working deeper in the psyche than you might realize. We are here to show you that life is not good until you can listen to your own heart and mind, and to balance the two so that love always flows and common sense is wise. We thank you for being here but we know that you will always be near us, our words are just words our presence is always present! -Brett Clauson & Nate

One memory that will always stay with me is how on exactly such an occasion, I was really lucky to be born in South Africa, the farm hands had gone ahead to the field to begin bringing him in, and I could see as I and have a father who owned two farms in what approached that he was not making it easy for was then called the Orange Free State. I used to them. This was one of my first experiences of spend my holidays on ‘die plaas’ (the farm) intentional animal communication; I called out to galloping around on my little pony called ‘Stiga’. him with my heart and mind, and asked him to Stiga was one of the first beings to teach me come to me. I walked up quietly, whistled and about communicating with animals, and what a stood with the halter held out open. To my utter phenomenal teacher he was. amazement, Stiga looked at me, walked over and put his head straight in the halter. To me, he was There are large bits of my childhood that I saying as clearly as he could, “I will choose who I don’t seem to remember very clearly, and yet my time spent on the farm as a child stays with me as spend my time with dear farmhand, and it’s not you, but with Sue”. vividly as if it was only yesterday. My Dad used to own two farms in Fouriesburg, near to our That was something I always respected hometown of Bethlehem. At the time, Fouriesburg about Stiga. He really knew his own mind. If I was not much more than 2 tarred roads and asked him to do something and he thought it was multiple dirt tracks. Our farm was about 15 a good idea, then I only had to suggest it and he minutes’ drive from town, and my heart always used to race when we turned off onto the road that would go ahead. If he didn’t agree with what I led to the farm. I couldn’t wait to see my wonderful asked, then no amount of egging him on, begging, pleading or cajoling could get that pony to move little Stiga – who, thankfully, would have been an inch. He would honestly turn into a little statue; brought in from one of the outlying fields to the it was quite something! one directly next to the farmhouse. My dad Stiga was the most trustworthy, unpredictable wouldn’t even have stopped the engine and I best friend a little girl could ever have wished for. would have jumped off the back of the truck and There are so many wonderful memories I have of started running to that field. There he would be… spending time with him. a dusty, cheeky, feisty little mess of black fur, which would later be groomed to perfection. After we had gone for our first ride, I would take him back and stand outside the kitchen of the Some days Stiga would mess around with farmhouse. He would get a bowl of sugar, and I me and gallop from end to end of the field, while I 44


would spend the next few hours grooming him. How he loved the attention! I used to stand directly behind him brushing his tail, and knowing that there was no way on earth he would ever kick me; I trusted him utterly and completely, and he in his own way taught me how to handle and move around a horse with the right combination of familiarity and respect. On really hot days we used to swim through the dam to cool down, we used to go picking our way over the top of bergs, Stiga, making most mountain goats look flat footed. Our party trick was to walk up the front stairs to the ‘stoep’ (patio) of the farmhouse and knock on the door. Galloping as fast as the wind up the main road to the farmhouse, and seeing how much dust we could kick up was a favorite. There was the little road between the farmhouse and the dam that was surrounded by trees, and we would tiptoe through the shade listening to the whispering of the breeze through the branches. We used to ride for hours on end, going off to the meadow, and then resting under the weeping willows – I would read a book whilst Stiga grazed. I used to ride him around the field without a bridle or saddle… in fact I used to stand on his back too, to pick apples for both of us. One year, the peach trees were so laden with fruit that the branches broke. That day Stiga and I consumed so many glorious, sweet, ripe, fresh, juicy peaches that we felt ill in the end. There wasn’t much we didn’t do together. Some of the most treasured moments of my life were spent on the farm with that little black pony. Stiga and I always had the most natural connection. At the time, I don’t think I realized quite how unusual it was. I always appreciated that it was precious, but in my youth, I didn’t know how rare it was to have such a unique and perfectly open and understanding connection with another being. If I looked to the right, Stiga would go that way. If I thought about cantering, he would respond. I never worried that he would run off with me because he always stopped when asked. He would let me get back on if I got off, he didn’t run away from me miles from home (thankfully!), and just being together was one greatest experiences of genuine peace I have ever had in my life.

When I think back now of how young I was, riding with only a bridle, no hat, no saddle, no supervision, just galloping from one side of a sprawling South African farm to the other, I am a little horrified that my father allowed it. What if I had fallen in a ditch? What if I had been bitten by a snake? Yet, with Stiga by my side, nothing like that ever worried me. I felt safe and protected by my bolshie little pony. I knew that he wouldn’t take any rubbish from me, but equally I always felt that he would look out for me and the he loved me as completely as I loved him. So, it’s to that amazing, astounding little pony that I dedicate this article because without his profound influence in my life, I wouldn’t have a bank of precious memories to look back on and neither would I have become who, and what, I am today. If you have an animal in your life who is important to you, please go to them now, cuddle them and tell them how much you love them because they are precious, they are unique, and they need to know that.

We are living during a monumental time in which humanity is experiencing a shift to higher consciousness. We are shifting from 3rd dimension consciousness to 5th dimension consciousness. The following is what one may experience once they have reached 5th dimension consciousness and beyond: When a person reaches 5th dimension consciousness, they may experience existing in a permanent state of peace, bliss, love, and joy. No effort is required on their part to remain in this state. This takes place naturally and automatically. All dissonant energy is automatically filtered out. In addition to automatically existing in a permanent state of peace, bliss, love, and joy, people who have reached 5th dimension consciousness may begin to automatically see themselves in everyone whether it be humans or animals. They may also begin to automatically feel love for everyone. Furthermore, no negative thoughts stream into the mind of a person who has reached 5th dimension consciousness. In fact, all negative thoughts are automatically filtered out of their mind. The mind is also automatically quiet without the constant chatter that flows into the 3rd dimension mind. In fact, there are not very many thoughts that enter a mind that has reached 5th dimension consciousness unless the thoughts are necessary in moving them from one event or moment to the next event or moment.

with Trish LeSage

When a person reaches 5th dimension consciousness, their perception of time may slow down considerably. Time on the clock of the wall may seem to pass by more quickly, but the mind does not perceive that very much time has passed. This may be compared to what is said happens when a person experiences physical death. During physical death, a person transitions from 3rd dimension consciousness to 4th dimension consciousness. It is said that while years may pass on the Earth, it may seem like only minutes have passed in the spirit world. Our perception of time slows down as we transition from 3rd dimension consciousness to 4th dimension consciousness during physical death. This is 48


why it may seem that not much time has passed in the spirit world while a lot of time has passed on the Earth. Those who have ever had a close brush with death as a result of an accident or nearly being in an accident, may have noticed, that their mind starts moving more slowly in these situations also. Everything appears to happen in slow motion. The soul is getting ready to transition from 3rd dimension consciousness to 4th dimension consciousness in these situations so that the person may exit through the portal of death. Hence, their perception of time slows down. Sometimes a change to the divine plan for the person's life is made, however, and they miraculously, barely escape from harm often at the last second. One may also notice that if they use Self-Hypnosis or meditation, it may also seem as though not much time has passed, but according to the clock on the wall, a lot of time may have passed. Again, in these cases, the mind is transitioning beyond the 3rd dimension. The same phenomenon happens while we are physically alive in a 3rd dimensional body on the 3rd dimension Earth, and our energy vibration increases, for us to ascend to 5th dimension consciousness. Our perception of time slows down. When a person reaches 5th dimension consciousness, they only live in the present moment with no reference to the past. They can access past memories if they need to, however, a person who has reached 5th dimension consciousness does not dwell in the past. Their mind is automatically focused on the present moment with no effort required on their part at all whatsoever. It is simply a state of being that they automatically live in. Since a person who has reached 5th dimension consciousness is automatically living in the present moment, they also do not have any reference to the future which means that they do not have any worries on their mind about the future either. They simply live from moment to moment; from one event to the next event. A person who has reached 5th dimension consciousness may also experience increased psychic and intuitive abilities. They may experience any of the following: Clairvoyance (seeing beyond the 3rd dimension/3D), Clairaudience (hearing beyond 3D), Clairsentience (feeling beyond 3D), Clairgustance (tasting beyond 3D), Clairalience (smelling beyond 3D), Clairempathy (feeling what others feel), Claircognizance (Information that a person had no prior knowledge of flows into their mind automatically from an unknown source), Telepathy, Premonitions, ESP (Extra Sensory Perception), Prophecy, split consciousness, Kinetic

Energy (moving physical objects without touching them physically and without intending to move them), Psychokinesis (moving physical objects without physically touching them when intending to move them), Psychometry (touching an object and being able to feel the energy that has been absorbed by the object), and other psychic phenomena. A person who has reached 5th dimension consciousness may also shift from a state of mind based on belief to a state of mind based on intuitive knowing. Intuitive knowing goes beyond one's belief system. It is an inner knowing. Similarly, one may also automatically know whether information is true or false based on how the energy of the information resonates, as everything in existence is simply energy. There is nothing in existence that is not energy. Even our thoughts are energy. Manifestation is also much easier when a person reaches 5th dimension consciousness. No meditations, visualizations, rituals, putting a lot of energy into statements of intent, nor any focus on nor knowledge of the Law of Attraction is required either. Just a simple, light thought about what is desired is enough to manifest it into physical reality, and in a lot of situations, no thought about their desires is even required, as everything is simply synchronized so that what they need is there for them exactly when and where they need it. This is indeed a very interesting time in which to be alive on the Earth. We are headed to a state of existence that is free from the dissonance and the restrictions of the 3rd dimension, and it is a wonderful and beautiful state of existence to live in.

The Turiya State of Super Consciousness

as reflected by Ramana Maharshi and Mahatma Gandhi 50


When our meditation practice becomes true to ourselves as states of joy alight, we are in the state of turiya. Turiya is higher consciousness. Turiya is what the sages call the ‘sleepless sleep.’ Turiya is the experience of the liberated. The liberated are the ‘self-realized.’ Sri Ramana Maharshi, one of Mother India’s enlightened masters, would awaken the turiya state of higher consciousness of any seeker who sought his blessings simply through silent presence. His simple gaze would awaken a seeker to realization.

Sri Ramana Maharshi’s awakening of the turiya state is conveyed in the following story that Nandhi adapted to express the yogic insights into the essence of meditation and the conscious mind: Three thieves ruled over the jungle. If anyone entered this jungle they never could escape—for the first thief was merciless, cruel and lazy. The second thief always wanted things done. He was constantly in action—running around the forest, checking out the neighboring towns and never at one place for very long. The third thief, however, had goodness in him. He was peaceful, happy, but sworn into company of the other two thieves since they were living together in the forest as a family.

an Angel.” Manidan walked out to his true reality, with the name and identity of Deva. The thieves are the three states of mind.

Imprisoned by the three thieves, Manidan prayed to Source for freedom from this harassment and cruelty, not knowing any other relief. Hearing the prayers the third thief, the good thief came to the rescue of Manidan.

The first state of mind is tamas—the lower state of the mind that is ignorant. The tamas state is characterized as the nature of sloth, anger, violence and all the lower tendencies of the human. The second state of mind is rajas, which depicts a person who is active and action oriented, as in the fast paced society of the West and as city dwellers—in a survival mode. The third state of mind is called sattva which is characterized as the peaceful tranquil nature that knows basic goodness in each pure thought. Any time we pray, meditate or contemplate source, our sattvic mind steps in to untie us from the unique bond of ego and the mental patterns we experience in human limitations.

One day, while the first thief, the bad thief, was sleeping, and the second thief was as usual doing his rounds, the good thief released Manidan of the bonds. The good thief took Manidan to the outer boundaries of the forest and said, “Walk out to your freedom beyond the entrapment of this forest and the robbers who dwell in it. From now on, remember that you are not Manidan anymore. You are a Deva,

The ‘forest‘ is the human mind that we enter into through this birth. Manidan, the man captured and confined in the mind ‘forest‘, is the humanness of ourselves. Manidan, in Tamil, means the human. Deva is the ‘Being’ whom we are when we are shown freedom by the third state of the mind — the sattvic nature within ourselves. Deva, in both Tamil and Sanskrit means the angel.

One day, Manidan had to go through the forest. As always happened to anyone who entered the forest, Manidan was held captive by the three thieves. The thieves tied up Manidan as prisoner within the forest.

51


This deva state is turiya the spirit having the human experience as a higher conscious being. In the state of turiya—experienced as expanded realities—we are able to tap into our potential of genius wherever we choose to focus our attention. The turiya state is a common denominator of inspiration for all people. For instance, an artist while painting, a mother suckling her baby or anyone who is aligned to the genius of perfection, steps into turiya states where the doer forgets time, hunger, and tiredness in the intensity of inspiration. Every higher conscious master imparts wisdom through the alignment of being in states of turiya through prayer, contemplation, meditation and inspiration. The majority of humanity experience turiya unconsciously in states of joy; in this fleeting flash of a moment, joy reveals itself and sets the human in pursuit to have more of this joy. A yogi consciously seeks the state of joy perpetually within and until the state of turiya begins to be the perpetual meditation mode—of being in love, as love, in every moment. Disciplines form around the desire to have more joy, leading us to do our daily yoga— lighting a lamp to source.

Gandhi ample time to utilize in writing.

What you will ‘see’ in Sabarmati Ashram is the immense stature of Mahatma Gandhi, as he made more than a mere mark in history. He was a giant in this moment in time, swaying global leaders while being the epicenter of a mass movement committed to non-violence. Mahatma Gandhi was in the blessed state of turiya. He was a yogi. He began his day waking up no later than 3:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. Every morning without fail, at 4.30 a.m., he and all the ashram inmates would recite the prayers that had been chosen from all the major religions. Mahatma Gandhi would go to bed at 11:00 p.m. He loved reading, and would fall asleep by midnight providing him with about 4four hours of sleep each day. He did not sleep during most days; if he did take a nap during daytime, it was a short nap for less than 30 minutes. Mahatma Gandhi said, “If you are really tired during the day, meditate twice as much, to wipe tiredness away.” In Mahatma Gandhi’s most personal book called

All of this leads to a mind that is in the joy of awareness, mindfulness and bliss, which is the nature of the turiya state. Those liberated and blessed by turiya are Mahatmas—the immense awake souls—like Mahatma Gandhi. If you are traveling through Mother India, visit Sabarmati Ashram. Here, Mahatma Gandhi’s divine presence is enshrined in the form of the many books he wrote and the innumerable articles, notes and books written about him. Here was a man who also did household chores, ashram duties and was involved in the relentless struggle for freedom. The time he spent in prison, of course, gave Mahatma 52


Prayer, he is revealing the turiya state.

In this autobiographical book, Mahatma Gandhi writes a rare portrait of himself—more open and frank in discussing his intimate spiritual life. In understanding and celebrating each breath in tune with source, Mahatma Gandhi describes being in a meditative state throughout his daily work and how intensely inspired each moment was even during difficult times. He mentions in this book, how he went to sleep with his final plunge into the depth of sleep through prayer, and then would wake up each morning with prayer; thus attaining the higher conscious mind that could manifest magnificent realities as a Mahatma. A historically significant incident was recorded by the disciples of Sri Ramana Maharshi, when the Saint was asked what he thought about M.K Gandhi. This was at a time when the title of Mahatma was not yet conferred to Mahatma Gandhi—about 20 years before India won independence, and when the freedom struggle of India against the British imperialism had waned. At that time, Mahatma Gandhi was in a political wilderness with no seeming breakthrough with the British in the struggle for freedom.

consciousness making each thought potent to manifest the most harmonious, abundant and inspired realities. Imagine the power of a million Mahatmas shaping our global realities as blessings of turiya for all of humanity. Through turiya, be a Mahatma. About Tapasyogi Nandhi: Nandhi represents the wisdom of the liberated. He represents the mystical path of the Siddhars of South India. He is a visionary, yogi, transformational guide and a humanitarian. Nandhi’s life mission is in sharing consciousness through offerings of empowering Siddhar mantras of ancient grace through music; through the teachings of Mastery of Consciousness; and through the inspired work of the heart as in the grand Visions. His new music album Arakara is being released by White Swan in Aug 2013.

Sri Ramana Maharshi responded with total confidence, “Gandhi operates from the Aadi Atma Shakti, and no matter what, he will accomplish the objective of the freedom struggle.” Sri Ramana Maharshi meant that Mahatma Gandhi had tapped into the powerful “Soul Force,” the primal energy of the soul, and this awake turiya state would lead Mahatma Gandhi to victory. Thus, the turiya state of the awake presence and actions of Mahatma Gandhi was recognized by Sri Ramana Maharshi, years before Mahatma Gandhi was truly acknowledged by all of India for this accomplishment of winning independence. Attain the turiya state through our daily practice to celebrate our union with source. By cultivating our daily practice, we expand our

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.�
