An Invitation to

Quantum Activism Dr. Amit Goswami Ph.D has appeared in the blockbuster movie “What the Bleep Do We Know?“, the award winning “The Dalai Lama Renaissance” and authored over a dozen books including the ‘The Self-Aware Universe’ and ‘The Quantum Doctor’. He has recently released the award winning documentary ‘The Quantum Activist’.

Q

uantum physics in the form of its famous observer effect (how an observation transforms quantum possibilities into actual experiences in the observer’s consciousness) is forcing us into a paradigm shift away from the primacyof-matter to a new paradigm: the Primacy of consciousness. Quantum Activism is the idea of changing ourselves and our societies in accordance with the transformative and revolutionary message of quantum physics. This change is taking its cue from the emergence of a new paradigm within science; the paradigm of a consciousness based reality as articulated by Quantum Physics. So what are the transformative messages of quantum physics? First, consciousness is the ground of all being, and all objects of our experience (sensing, thinking, feeling, and intuition) are quantum possibilities for consciousness to choose from. Second, if we choose from what is known, that is to say, what is conditioned in us from prior experiences, we are choosing from our ego-consciousness. But if we choose what is unknown, what is unmanifest in our prior experiences, we are choosing from what spiritual traditions call Godconsciousness (in scientific language we call it quantum consciousness). Choosing from God-consciousness requires quantum leaps (movement from point A to point B without going through intermediate steps), nonlocality (signalless communication), and tangled hierarchy (causal relationships of circularity) The third message of quantum physics is the evolution of consciousness, and it is taking us toward a greater and greater capacity for processing the meaning of our lives and the world around us. The immediate future of evolution is promising to take us from our current preoccupation with the

4

rational mind to an intuitive mind that values the archetypes; such as Good, Beauty, Truth, Justice, and Love, and gives us the ability to process the meaning of our lives through these archetypes. So the goal of the quantum activist is to explore quantum possibilities and manifest these archetypes—Good, Beauty, Truth, Justice, and Love—in his or her life as intimately and as expressly as one can, and in doing so to help transform the world. The means a quantum activist uses to achieve this goal are threefold—right thinking, right living, and right livelihood. Right thinking consists of understanding the paradigm shift from a user’s point of view and helping others in our environment to do so. Right living consists of walking the talk, manifesting our understanding in how we live, and becoming guiding examples for the inspiration of others. As such it takes a lot of quantum leaps, openness to being in the nonlocality of God consciousness which informs the doing of the ego’s day to day activities, and the desire to change hierarchical relationships into tangled ones. Right livelihood consists of earning our living in a way that is congruent with our modes of thinking and living and helping our entire society to achieve this congruence. It is exciting you say, but is that enough to motivate me? I will tell you my fundamental understanding: if you are reading this column you are already motivated.

by Dr Amit Goswami Ph.D You know what? Consciousness is already pressuring you to join its evolutionary movement. So what do we do now? We become Quantum Activists of course!

Presents

The Quantum Activist An evening seminar with Dr Amit Goswami Ph.D There is a revolution going on in science. A genuine paradigm shift. While mainstream science remains materialist, a substantial number of scientists are supporting and developing a paradigm based on the primacy of consciousness. Dr. Amit Goswami Ph.D, a pioneer of this revolutionary new perspective within science shares with us his vision of the unlimited potential of consciousness as the ground of all being, and how this revelation can actually help us to live better.

Kevin is a highly successful Harley Street therapist, a qualified Master Hypnotist trainer and Master Practitioner trainer of NLP. He was also the first trainer in the world to be awarded the coveted RCT trainer designation by the Association of Thought Field Therapy. He frequently works with TV life-change specialist Paul McKenna who says ‘Kevin Laye is an excellent and remarkable clinical practitioner, who with his sensitivity and skill enables others to make significant and important changes in their lives’. He is the author of ‘Positive Shrinking’ (published by Hay House) and has helped thousands of people from all over the world to lose weight with his breakthrough system. by Kevin Laye

hy the need for Positive Shrinking? - There are thousands of books available on the subject of diets as a methodology to lose weight. Okay for a short-term fix, yet in most cases the claims are that after the diet people either return to the weight they were before or more commonly put on extra weight hence the term ‘Yo Yo dieting’. Science tells us it is a simple equation of energy in versus energy out, this is correct, yet if it really that simple why is obesity such a growing problem? Positive Shrinking utilises techniques and tools that if employed by the user will mean you ‘must’ enable yourself to obtain the goals you desire. It is a lifestyle not a diet. What is Positive Shrinking? - Methods modelled from sources such as NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) TFT (Thought Field Therapy) and other psychological fields are blended to develop a cocktail of techniques simple in their application enabling the person to take true control of their eating habits. If I said to someone ‘OK I need to see you gain 10lbs in weight in 3 weeks, would you be able to do it?’ the answer would undoubtedly be a ‘Yes’. So we do have the ability to control weight. What Positive Shrinking does is show you how to apply this in a reverse method and enable you to be the weight you have waited to be…from Now How is it done? – The system trains you to eradicate very quickly the emotional drivers that cause you to overindulge whatever your drug of choice is, and in this case that drug is food. It includes learning how to:

collapse the anxieties that cause emotional (comfort) eating kill cravings quickly and permanently utilise a simple formulae for when you eat stop the excuses and ‘just do it’ determine which foods are OK for you and those to which you are sensitive employ the FIT method (Focused- Intention-Tenacity) and much more…

By using these techniques you can achieve control over both your weight and how you relate to food. It’s all about mind over platter!

ate Mackenzie is an international life coach, workshop leader and artist working all over the UK and Spain, Greece and Kuwait. She has been running workshops since 1993 and painting hearts since 1998. Her heart images are being sold through IKEA in 72 countries around the world. She has been featured on BBC2, Channel 5, BBC Radio and in Cosmopolitan, Psychologies, Prediction and Spirit & Destiny. She is passionate about helping people to download their mission and live the life of their dreams. Your Heart is the deepest place of manifestation. When you live from your heart you live from your truth and your creativity. Many people have shut their hearts down to protect themselves from being hurt. Although this is totally understandable this can mean that they are living a much smaller life. I work with people to support them to feel safe enough to open their hearts, understand their blocks and release them and begin to live the life of their dreams. This is a process of loving and accepting who you are, allowing your dreams to re-emerge and handling and unpacking your resistance to having what you want. With loving support and commitment to your process I believe it is possible to engage in deep and lasting change. This is the journey of opening the heart, developing a greater capacity for love and being able to receive your best life. Although this sounds simple many people need support and guidance in how to achieve this. I wish to be a guide and a positive mirror to help people believe in themselves again and begin to manifest their dreams. You are the beloved the one you have been longing to meet you just needed to realise this. Once you have your vision back in your life you may be amazed at what you create. You then need to continue to take love and support in your life and grow further and further. Once you are on a heart journey the openings continue and the life you create amazes you.

Conscious Eating -

Food for Life Marketa is raw food expert and chef, who runs raw food workshops, classes and dining experiences in the Midlands.

by Marketa Rozsypalova Raw Living Foods Raw foods – or live foods - are essentially fresh organic plant-based foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, sprouts, herbs and superfoods which have been prepared below the temperature of 118 Degrees Fahrenheit (43˚C). They are whole and unprocessed and are great for your body. Cooking and processing deplete food of many of its nutrients. Raw foods contain their full complement of nutrients and enzymes. Many medical studies have shown that the more raw living foods we eat, the healthier our bodies become. In the 1930s, Swiss scientists found that the body increases the number of white bloods cells in the bloodstream after eating cooked foods but that this does not occur after consuming raw foods.

Enzymes – The Spark of Life Enzymes are the universal ‘spark of life’. Enzymes are responsible for every metabolic action in the body including digestion. All fresh raw and living foods have the enzymes necessary to help the body in their digestion. It has been shown that heating food destroys the enzymes. Cooked food is therefore more difficult to digest and stays in the body longer. Raw food digests in less than half time it takes similar cooked food to digest.

Does Cooked & Processed Food Have Less Nutritional Value? All nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes are heat sensitive and are destroyed by cooking. Cooking destroys at least one-half of food’s available protein, over 50 to 80% of its vitamins and minerals and half of the antioxidants.

The Benefits of Raw Foods A medical study carried out in 1980’s found that eating more raw food significantly reduced blood pressure and resulted in weight loss. Also, other studies carried in the 1990’s showed that it boosted the immune system and improved the health of chronically ill people. Eating more raw food is a preventive medicine that can protect the body from disease and increase longevity. It maintains healthy hair, skin, fingernails, optimal body weight and both inner & outer beauty. Here is some recent feedback on the Raw Food Experience Evenings: ‘Thank you so much for your welcoming raw food evening last night, it truly was an eye-opening experience….. I had no idea that raw food could be so tasty & comforting, yet gourmet!!’ Su Evans, member of Solihull Natural Health Group I love sharing and surprising people with how creative and delicious raw foods can be. Try this tasty quick raw sweet recipe right. Hear Marketa speak at the Inspiration Network on 4 October (see website for

1 cup Apricots (dried) 1 cup Goji berries 1 cup Cashew nuts 1 tbsp Maca powder Juice from 1 Lemon Blend all the above ingredients in a food processor until it sticks together. Then with your hands make small crunchy balls from the mixture. Roll the balls in cacao powder, maca powder or dried coconut. You can use you imagination in your presentation to make it look angelic! ‘It's so beautifully arranged on the plate you know someone's fingers have been all over it.‘ - Julia Child
