T

he Shroud of Shoulds is a place to hide if we do not know what we want to experience. It is easier to point the finger at someone or something and feel that they/it are keeping us from happiness. If we are confused about anything in life then we can fall back into the Shoulds. The Course in Miracles says it is our responsibility to eliminate stress and strain so that we might live in joy and experience the Kingdom of God. The word re-sponseability is simply the capacity to be able to respond to the inner dreams and desires that are within each of us. Shirk the Shroud of Shoulds and think in terms of “could if I want to” or “could but don’t want to”. There’s a big life waiting for you to live it! -Rev. Margie Anne Taylor-Black

CHEMTRAILS On your cover story about the dangers of Chemtrails, when Michael Murphy is asked: “Politically, what can the average person do?” His answer is “awareness is the key…” But is that enough? While he describes what he is doing, he doesn’t really tell us how to begin at the grassroots level. There must be Chemtrail organizations that people can join. Simply being aware of the issue just isn’t going to cut it.

Fred Silverman

GMOs Linda Harmon does a nice job explaining the dangers of GMOs, however, she makes no mention of the huge downside of Passing Prop 37. If every product has to be labeled -- from tomatoes to peanut butter sandwiches, the cost will be enormous. Food manufacturers and growers will have to comply by adding a whole new bureaucracy to their operations, which means adding lawyers and researchers to their staffs. Mom and Pop food entrepreneurs won’t be spared either. Also, GMO regulations require yet another a new government agency to monitor compliance. This means even higher taxes at a time nobody can afford it. Harmon’s article says that Prop 37’s passage, “would allow consumers to vote with their pocketbook every time they went to the market.” Consumers are already doing this! Everybody has the opportunity shop at organic and labeled grocery stores, but the majority chooses not to, primarily because of the higher cost. So who is going to bear the brunt of Prop 37’s higher costs? The poor, as usual, as everyone’s food budget will be cut. Do we really want more people to go hungry? Shouldn’t they have a choice as well?

From Screen Siren to Spiritual Sage

The Journey of

Sally

Sally Kirkland has played as many fascinating roles in her personal life as on the silver screen. Not wanting to be typecast as just a blonde bombshell, she reinvented herself both physically and spiritually during her decades in the Hollywood spotlight. Throughout her fifty-year acting career as an outspoken and charismatic award-winning actress, she transformed herself into a mature spiritual teacher, effortlessly expounding love and compassion.

S

ally was an only child, born to her namesake, Sally and Frederic Kirkland in New York City. Her family life was highly creative, free-spirited, but also quite conventional. Her father insisted upon a rigorous religious upbringing including private church schools. The Kirklands were New York high society and Sally had the finest schooling and manners. As a teenage debutante she learned the ways of the upper echelon during the 1950s. Sally’s parents were confident, outgoing and successful people although she remained shy. That was unusual given that Sally senior was not your typical mother. She was brilliant, career-oriented and driven in the glamorous heyday of fashion and publishing. She was the assistant editor of Vogue magazine from 1939 to 1945 and promoted to fashion editor in 1946. Her close friends were hardly PTA mothers, and included

Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Andy Warhol, and Picasso. The younger Sally gained her style and flair through a state of osmosis, exposed to the highest of aesthetics, sensibilities and artistic expression of the day. To overcome her shyness, Sally’s mother suggested she step into the limelight and in front of the camera, and shed her timid demeanor. In 1947, Sally’s mother moved to LIFE Magazine, the most influential publication of the era. At LIFE she was the first editor to hire an African American, the famed and gifted filmmaker and photographer, Gordon Parks. For the times, Sally’s family was progressive and forward thinking. Or so she thought. The most meaningful relationship in Sally’s young life was a loving nanny that she thoroughly adored. “I had a black nurse, Louise, who wore a turban for Allah, sang Gospel in the choir, and practiced Juda-

ism. Everything I learned about God, I learned from Louise,” Sally reminisces. Louise was a larger than life character teeming with life, an open heart and providing much love for the young Sally. Unfortunately, though Louise was a trusted employee of the Kirkland family, Sally’s father fired her in times of segregation. Both Sally and her mother were heartbroken. “When this happened, it was horrifying to me. I loved Louise more than anyone. That was the confusion in my young life. How could God allow this? And how could my father, who was responsible for my religious schooling, do that?” This sad incident had Sally questioning God, which ultimately propelled her to live a life she could be passionate about. She wanted the world to be more inclusive, equitable and loving, just like her beloved Louise. By the time Sally was in her early 20s, she marched for women’s rights,




for race equality with Martin Luther King, and became a very outspoken critic of the Vietnam war. For Sally, losing her nanny was a turning point for both her outward and inner journey -the start of a deeper spiritual connection and the catalyst for her lifelong devotion to political activism. While still a high school student living at home, Sally gravitated towards the arts, a most likely avocation given her mother’s profession and the constant socializing with the top artists, actors and writers of the day. Hobnobbing with these super successful people, it was easy for Sally to imagine a successful career in the arts. She showed an early aptitude for painting, as well as a developing interest in acting. But Sally felt that her passion for the dramatic arts had to be hidden. “It was unheard of for me to be an actor in the Kirkland family. So I told them I would go to art school,” says Sally. She enrolled in the Art Students League, while sneaking off to classes at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. She also studied with the acclaimed acting teacher, Uta Hagen. When this passion for acting became apparent, Sally’s mother was supportive but could not let Sally’s father know that his daughter would be giving up college to pursue professional acting. While Sally was still in school, her Godmother, mentor and close friend was the Oscar winning actress Shelley Winters who introduced her to the famous Strasberg’s Actors Studio. Although Lee Strasberg admitted the most promising actors, Sally was soon accepted as the youngest student in the studio. She studied with peers such as Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Dustin Hoffman.

Quickly discovered by David O. Selznick, who brought her to Director Francois Truffaut, Sally’s career was taking off. Her very first acting role was the film, The 13 Most Beautiful Women, directed by Andy Warhol. During the 70’s she continued to get bigger parts and was handpicked by Robert Redford to play his girlfriend in the critically acclaimed and box-office success, The Sting. During her time in Hollywood, Sally has been cast in many high profile pictures, and been fortunate to work with some of the most talented directors and actors in the business. Besides numerous TV appearences in such shows as Roseanne, Criminal Minds, and Felicity, she has starred in over 130 films which include The Way We Were, JFK, Ed TV, and Bruce Almighty. With Hollywood success came pressure to keep up her looks and so like many actresses, Sally decided to have breast implants. For Sally, the implants were icing on the cake. She was beautiful before, but the new breasts made her a bona fide sex symbol. Now, with her long blonde mane, her enhanced figure, and her easy going sexy style, Sally had come a long way from the painfully shy little girl she was as a child. She became one of the most sought after stars in Hollywood. It was at this time, Sally first began having severe health problems. She was perplexed by what was causing her health to deterioate, but little by little, she realized that the breast implants were leaking and poisoning her body. Due to her burgeoning acting career, it was a hard choice for her to initially make, but finally Sally concluded that she had to have the implants removed. “They were killing me. I was in crippling pain,” says Sally. In typical Sally fashion, she then went on to be an Continued on Page 8

advocate against breast implants so she could spare others from poisoning their bodies. Gladly the implant removal had no detrimental consequences on Sally getting roles. Instead, her acting continued to blossom, and she continued to steadily win meaningful parts. Even with a successful Hollywood career, Sally never abandoned her desire for a deeper connection to God. She began seeking out spiritual masters to assist her soul growth. And one day, she found just that person. While taking a walk, Sally took notice of the front page of newspaper. It was an article about John Roger, the founder of The Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness (MSIA). At once, Sally sought out John Roger. I said, “Who is this man? I need to learn from him. I knew immediately that he was the one to help me on my journey.” Ironically, years earlier, John Roger himself knew their paths would cross. He had seen Sally in the Academy Award winning movie, The Sting and immediately had a premonition that she would become an integral part of his organization. When Sally appeared in John Roger’s classes, other MSIA members would remark, “You’re the woman he spoke to us about. You’re the one he knew was coming.” Sally steadily and diligently studied at MSIA and was ordained a Minister of Light by John Roger in 1976. In 1988 Sally received her soul initiation and soon after was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her lead role in the acclaimed movie Anna. She ultimately lost out to Cher in Moosntruck, but took home the best actress award from the Golden Globes, The Independent Spirit Award and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association. When asked, “When do you think you became a whole person?” Sally had a quick re-

sponse. “It was at that time in 1988, as everything came together. My outer life and inner life were thriving. I took my mother to the Oscars that year and she was so very proud of me. It was quite lovely.” Sally’s mother passed away a few months later, and Sally credits being able to say goodbye to her mother in a very deep way due to her life long path establishing a connection with God and her work with MSIA. Today Sally Kirkland remains that whole person. Now 70, she constantly works and remains one of the most respected actresses in the industry. She believes her spiritual work assists her acting. She says that all her inner work makes it possible to get into a character and understand different female roles with more sensitivity. Sally is also a revered acting teacher. She has been coaching actors for 35 years and continues to be an avid painter, with her work exhibited in galleries and art festivals in New York and Los Angeles. Sally is also a political advocate for gay rights, and has been a caretaker for cancer, heart and AIDS patients. Sally Kirkland lives an extraordinary life. Her ability to integrate all aspects of her existence, physical, emotional and her spiritual awareness into her acting, as well as her social and political advocacy, continue to make her a role model for younger Hollywood. Sally’s dream for the planet and especially this year’s upcoming election is, “I hope the candidates place love and compassion above all else.” Spoken truly like a whole person.

Law of Attraction OR Distraction?

You are here to create the world around you that you choose.

by David Spetner

- Abraham-Hicks on The Law of Attraction

To seek a special person or a thing to add to you to make yourself complete, can only mean that you believe some form is missing. What form can be a substitute for God the Father’s Love?

-A Course in Miracles

H

ow could two spirituallybased philosophies be so radically opposed? The answer is simple. They’re each talking about a different world. We live in two worlds simultaneously, one of spirit and one of ego. ( When I say ego, I don’t mean it in terms of us focusing on our looks or making ourselves more important than we are, the ego is simply our human identity in the physical world; our body, our gender, our name, race, beliefs, experiences, etc.) As we pursue our spiritual paths, we make deci-

sions guiding us towards either building our ego or our God-identity while alternating between the two as both are necessary for survival on Earth. While AbrahamHicks, the people who originally spread the idea of The Law of Attraction on a popular scale, confidently state, “The Law of Attraction is the most powerful Law of the Universe.” A key question is then who’s doing the attracting, your ego or your spirit? Noting this conundrum, the Bible puts it rather succinctly, “You cannot serve two masters.” I was a devoted follower of The Law of Attraction for a long time. It changed my world - because it works. If you can tune your vibration towards something that you want, you can attract it into your life. But after listening to dozens of recordings, attending two live seminars and twice having the opportunity to speak to the channeled Abraham beings myself, it is evident that 75% or so of the participants are interested in fulfilling three primary desires; a lov-

ing relationship, good health (that was mine) and having enough money to do or buy whatever we want. These are the basic things people in the western world want to make themselves happy in our egoic world. But do these things truly bring happiness? Aren’t they, as A Course in Miracles says, really yearnings for the things we only think will complete us meaning that life and God are not adequate the way they are? What happens to the concepts of living in the moment and accepting things the way they are right now? Byron Katie calls this making friends with what is. Whom we love, how much money or things we possess and having the perfect career all serve to build and strengthen our ego - which is fine if that’s all we truly seek. But our spiritual being yearns only for one thing -- connection to God -- which we often call enlightenment, a state that is ever more fulfilling and joyful. In addition, many spiritual teachers tell us that the joy of enlightenment lasts forever, beyond our limited physical life. Cont. on Page 14


14

Law of Attraction or Distraction? Cont. from Page 13 The next most obvious question is; Can’t we have both? We can, as they’re not always mutually exclusive, but sometimes, and I believe most of the time, they are. For example, we might tune our vibration to attracting the perfect love relationship, but if we also want connection and guidance from God, that perfect relationship might fall apart soon after it starts. Why? Because when we ask for God’s love and guidance, it might include a lesson that what we ultimately want doesn’t come from this relationship. As it is often said, true fulfillment comes from “Letting go and letting God.” Also consider that we might attract the perfect love relationship and want it to last forever, but what if that conflicts with our mate’s desires? What if after a year into the perfect relationship, our mate decides they want to move on by either leaving us -- or even this world? This is a question that Abraham-Hicks answers by saying that universal energy is

like a big, complex computer that can put in all these apparently opposite desires into perfect resolution, to which my satirical side says, OK… maybe. All this being said, I still recommend people explore Law of Attraction books, recordings and groups if they feel drawn to them, as the practice can provide valuable lessons in discovering what you ultimately want. And once you get what you want, or even just see that it’s possible, you might decide to move on from nourishing your ego identity to nourishing your relationship with God. And yes - we can tune your vibration to that as well. Is it reasonable to discover our enlightenment if we ask for everything positive and then expect it? If so, where does the enlightenment fit in? Enlightenment isn’t shaping earthly forces to provide what we want. Rather, it’s the strength and insight to realize that the real world is the spiritual one,

not the one that says that cars, relationships and health will bring us happiness. What if our aspiring happiness includes things like living in a world without hunger, without innocent people being slaughtered on a daily basis? Is it possible to tune our personal vibration to end those things? No, instead we’re going to have to reach a point where we accept what’s going on in this physical world, do what we can to make it a better one and always be willing to find true happiness in accepting what is.

Spot T 3

The Three Steps to Finding Your Why is knowing

how to find your “T-Spot” one of the most important things you could possibly ever learn?

Q

uite simply, because the entirety of your life experience is influenced by it. While every one of us has a unique experience of the world, we all have one thing in common, our experience of our world is filtered through our emotions. Yet many people have not stopped for a moment and asked themselves exactly what the significance of their emotions is! Think about it. Were you ever formally taught about your emotions? How they work? What they mean? How they cycle? Many people spend their entire lives seeking pleasurable emotions and avoiding the painful ones.

Your T-Spot refers to your Transformation Spot... What is meant by transformation? So many terms have attempted to describe it. For the purpose of this article, we define the T-Spot as the point of thought, where one is able to transcend a current, core emotional cycle. We will get back to transforma-

tion, but first let’s discuss a little bit more about emotional cycles to help us connect the dots.

Human beings experience thousands of emotions, which can be grouped into two categories: positive (pleasurable) and negative (disturbing).

Negative Emotions The death of a loved one, the ending of a relationship, financial disaster…all of these life challenges might bring up emotions such as fear, rejection or depression. For the purpose of our discussion, we will label these as negative or disturbing emotions. These emotions can become repeating experiences in our lives for months, years or even decades. In fact, these emotions will repeat until we consciously balance our perceptions of the actual experiences that caused them in the first place. Your T-Spot is reached upon balancing your perceptions of positive and negative around the event that caused your emotions to spiral in the first place.

Positive Emotions Remember a time when you were really excited about being married, or extremely elated about getting a new job? Do you think the elation associated with being married often follows with

by John Castagnini

a “bad marriage” or even a divorce? Ladies, do you wish you had known about a few of his “bad habits” when you first met that man? Have you spent years disappointed with a marriage that you were once excited about? Have you ever left a relationship, only to enter into a new relationship and experience the SAME challenges? This occurs because of an addiction to and an attraction for certain traits that you perceive as positive.

For instance, you might perceive intelligence and sex appeal as a positive emotional experience for which you have an attraction. You will soon discover that there are also equal amounts of disadvantages to sex appeal and intelligence. At this point of experiencing an equal amount of advantages and disadvantages, you experience your T-Spot.

Why do I want to experience my T-Spot? The reason is quite simple. You have the personal freedom to choose and remain in the same repeating emotional cycle, or transcend it. By knowing the three steps to finding your T-Spot, you can break though any emotional pattern. In your T-Spot you experience grace and appreciation. You transcend the illusion of positive and negative. You transcend your limited REALITY to experience what was once a hidden ACTUALITY.


The Three Steps To Finding Your T-Spot The purpose of the three steps is to share how to find your T-Spot, and in doing so, transcend your current emotional pattern.

1) Step one: Gaining Clarity Define the emotion that you are experiencing. Is this experience Positive or Negative? Try to chunk your experience down into specific words. For example, I feel betrayed, I am angry, I am depressed. I feel excited, I feel amazing.

2) Step two: Balancing your Perceptions If your emotions were NEGATIVE: (For these questions, think of your answers in terms of all of these 7 areas: Physically, Mentally, Spiritually, Financially, Vocationally, Family or Socially) What are some of the advantages of having this emotion? How has the experience of this emotion served you? How has it served other people? Did you gain wisdom? Did you become closer to another person? Did you spend time alone? What have you gained as a result of this experience? If your emotions were POSITIVE: What are some of the disadvantages of having this emotion? How did having this experience negatively impact yourself or others? What did you miss out on as a result of this experience? William James once stated, “Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune.”

3

Steps

Your T-Spot refers to your Transformation Spot 3) Step three: Taking Ownership Carl Jung once stated, “Anything that irritates us in others can lead us to a greater understanding of ourselves.” You have every trait/emotion/quality both INSIDE of you and OUTSIDE of you equally. We all exhibit each quality according to our unique value system. We will both express and repress these traits. For instance, if you value finances, you will exhibit emotions when your finances are affected. By the same token, if you value family you will exhibit emotions when your family is affected. By honoring where you have these qualities instead of disowning

them, you become empowered. Instead of rejecting, projecting, or seeking, you become liberated in honoring more of your being. Clearly identify where you possess the positive emotions and the negative emotions. (Again, think of your answers in terms of all of these 7 areas: Physically, Mentally, Spiritually, Financially, Vocationally, Family or Socially) Where do you remember yourself as having this emotion? Who has seen you having this emotion? After you completely balance your current emotions and you personally own where you possess inside yourself both positive and negative equally, you will reach your T-Spot. Upon reaching your T-Spot, you can experience a deep breath, a tearing of the eye, and a feeling of clarity. The three steps to finding your T-Spot will help you develop what I call “equilibrated,” or balanced, thinking. The experience of your emotions is based upon imbalanced perceptions, and in turn imbalanced thinking. So what happens after I reach my T-Spot? Life is a series of emotional cycles. There’s an infinite universe for us to explore. As we attract new people, places, and circumstances into our lives, we will have a new set of emotional experiences. In fact, our entire lives are the revolution of emotional cycles and the evolution from them. Now that you are armed with the threestep process on how to find your TSpot, you can spend more time evolving and less time “revolving.” WP John Castagnini is a best selling author, speaker and sought-after authority on human behavior and universal principles, founder of ThankGodi.com and featured in the film Discover The Gift.

Film Review 3 Magic Words Screened at Laemmle’s Monica 4, Reviewed bySean Mulvihill

“The wise man who knows the truth should not disturb the mind of him who does not.” - The Bhagavad Gita

W

hen I was invited to view Michael Perlin’s well-crafted documentary film, which asks the audience to chant en masse, the magical 3-word mantra, “I am God,” I admit, I was skeptical for two reasons. First, because I believed the film would be very polarizing and threatening to religious conservatives, and second, as a follower of “A Course in Miracles,” I have been very comfortable believing I was a child of God in whom God is well pleased, but to say I am actually God himself, well, wasn’t that blasphemous? As it turns out, the only blasphemy here is to sell ourselves short of the infinite power we possess. In 3 Magic Words, different people are asked, “Who am I?” and through interviews with authors, vignettes of a gorgeous young truth-seeker (Gabriella Ethereal), and visual art and motion graphics, we begin to piece together a feeling-realization that we are the one life, the one truth, the one way, and only within our own minds can we solve the mystery of existence. The film is imperfect: it suffers from a lack of technical prowess at certain points; the dramatic sequences with Ms. Ethereal pull us out of the film’s narrative (mainly because she is a bit too sexy for the subject matter); and occasional speeches from the film’s host (Cameron Smith) are static, dry, and without any visual cutaways, which led this viewer to become impatient. Overall, however, the message is not damaged by these shortcomings. The dozens of interviews never seemed overwhelming and broken into bite-sized chunks. The humorous quips of author Gary Renard bring a much-needed levity to the film, as most of the speakers are

“ ”

Only within our own minds can we solve the mystery of existence.

more serious in tone. Riz Story’s vibrant musical score adds enchantment and mystery as the film builds to its central message. The visual palette is often rich, and the authors, such as Kute Blackson and Neale Donald Walsch, appear as specters, floating beings, in tropical landscapes. This device works well, and keeps us in a contemplative mood, preparing us to know that we are God. All in all, the film, at a running time of 71 minutes, does keep us engaged, and

offers hungry spiritual viewers a feast of words and images upon which we can digest, and when the film finally arrives at its main point, we are prepped and ready to own it. Some of the funniest moments in the film come when Perlin interviews people on the street, asking them if they are okay with being God. Predictably, they are not ready for that responsibility. The film also hammers home the message that once we take responsibility for the fact that we are creating our own personal suffering by inflicting pain upon others and our environment (from which we are not separate), we can truly have the peace and joy that we all desire. The movie also has the potential to convince people that we are not simply bodies, and bodies are only a reflection of what we want to see. In truth we are limitless. This concept is one that may perturb the mind of one who has yet to taste the divine, but those who are ready, will enjoy it immensely. Perlin and his producer Maura Hoffman, plan to tour the film across the U.S. this fall and then in London this December. The film is also available on DVD and streaming through their website. An ambitious effort like this, which took four years to produce, is not as easy to make as it looks, as the film has dozens of authors interviewed, many locations, and many minutes of graphics and effects which are time-consuming to create. If you have the financial means, I recommend funding filmmakers like Perlin to make more projects with these messages. As for my skepticism as to the mass appeal of this film and its polarizing nature, I’ve realized people are more prepared than I previously thought. As the Course in Miracles says, “A good teacher must believe in the ideas he teaches, but he must meet another condition; he must believe in the students to whom he offers the ideas.” Michael Perlin truly believes in us and trusts us with his message: We are God. Seekers (and finders) of truth will be well pleased with this offering from Starseed Entertainment, while the majority of us movie lovers are still looking for that seminal film that will merge art and enlightenment.

How the Mobius Strip Supports Your Abundance by Moira Shepard

The unconscious mind thinks in symbols and images. A symbol can represent a thought, feeling, experience, or belief in a way the unconscious mind deeply understands. The Mobius Strip, otherwise known as the Infinity Symbol, may serve as a symbolic representation of the dynamic energy of Giving and Receiving that animates the living Universe in which you dwell. Using this model, Giving is Receiving and Receiving is Giving. It is a simultaneous process that is whole, perfect and complete within itself. So if you want to create Abundance in your life - emotionally, financially, spiritually, mentally, creatively ... Imagining the Mobius Strip as the model of Giving and Receiving can set in motion a new experience of Abundance in your day-to-day life.

can’t pay them back; and you feel so oppressed by obligation that you wish they had never done you the favor. How much Abundance can you allow or enjoy when you feel so short-changed, burdened by gratitude, or unfairly treated?

What Will Happen When You Feel Good About Giving and Receiving? What does the Mobius Strip have to do with Abundance? German mathematician August Ferdinand Mobius discovered what became known as the Mobius Strip in 1858. It is a surface with only one side and one boundary. The Mobius Strip offers a symbolic image of the flow of Giving and Receiving that runs through the universe, the Earth, your body and your life. It illustrates the concept that Giving and Receiving is ONE process - whole and complete within itself.

How do you know whether you have a false concept of Giving and Receiving? - You feel someone owes you something (money, love, a break, a favor, or “making it right”) because of something you did for them, or something they did to you. - You feel like you give, give, give and get nothing in return. Someone has done you a favor; you

How much lighter will you feel when you let go of your resentful insistence on a certain person paying you back? How much more relieved will you feel when you realize that whatever you have failed to pay back ... someone else has taken care of it, or you can pay it forward in a way that works for you? What will you do with all the Abundance that flows to you from all sides, now that you’re open to accept it from any and all avenues? How much more generous will you feel when you realize that whatever you give without insisting on payback ... is unfailingly paid back to you tenfold or more? Remember this and the infinite gifts of the Mobius Strip anytime you feel anxious, ashamed or guilty about giving or receiving.

Let’s Talk Chakras!!!!!! Levine This is an ongoing series by Kenton David Bell, a Master Spiritual Healer, Clairvoyant, Channel, Life Coach and Published Author. Everything is Energy… The Second Chakra Chakra is the Sanskrit word meaning “wheel” or “turning.” These “chakras” are energy vortices that can be found supporting the human physical vessel. It has been my personal understanding from working with these vortices, and the teachings from spirit, that these energy centers support physical life from the non-physical or spiritual realms into the physical. These vortices when off balance, or not metabolizing fully, can create distortions in our reality. When a Chakra has been out of balance for some time it can and does lead to physical disease. All disease begins as an energetic imbalance, which stem from something within your internal landscape needing attention. When we begin to work and honor these naturally organic systems within the body, we truly begin to master our health as well as evolve into high consciousness. The Second Chakra Color - Orange Location About one inch below the navel QUALITIES: PLEASURE, SEXUALITY, ABUNDANCE, WELL-BEING, SENSUALITY AND CREATIVITY Chakras 1 and 7 are the two chakras with only one aspect. Chakras 2-6 have two aspects to them, a front and back. The second chakra reflects and metabo-

lizes the life energies of pleasure, creativity, sexuality and abundance. When we experience imbalances in these realms, it is our Soul’s wisdom calling forth a time of growth. Instead of seeing these as imbalances, see these as opportunities for transformation. For every physical plane imbalance, there is an aspect of our Soul ready to bring forth the wisdom, love and transformation. It is the exercising of our free will that calls this into being. It’s all yours for the asking! Creativity & the Second Chakra The second chakra metabolizes the energies of creativity. It is often what we call lower or physical creativity. It is also the point when we begin to individuate from the tribal and societal en-

ergies in the first chakra and begin to experience duality, hence the sexual energies and the male/female polarities that we express in the human experience. Creativity, when honored, can break us out of routines that have kept us locked into certain ways of being and prevent us from moving forward in new and dynamic ways. Here are questions to probe the energies of creativity in the second chakra.

Do I feel creative in my day-to-day life? Are there aspects of my experience that feel stagnate and dull? Do I consider myself a creative person in general? Conttinued on Page 26

Conttinued from Page 25

Let’s Talk Chakras Well- Being & the Second Chakra Know that you are enough! In our fast paced world we often feel overwhelmed by all the to-do’s in our daily grind. If we don’t take time to slow down and smell the roses we are missing one of the key elements in living life. A life in balance is a life well lived! Reflect on these questions: Do you take a break from the whirlwind of your daily life? What do you do to release stress from your life? Do you know how to say NO to those people and situations that are toxic in your life? Spiritual Evolution & the Second Chakra Kundalini, sometimes referred to as the Coiled Serpent, is located at the base of the spine with powerful energy of transformation. The purpose of Kundalini is to cleanse the bodies --

physical, spiritual, emotional and ethereal so that one can hold a higher vibrational energy and begin to live their higher purpose. The Kundalini energy can and often is triggered by the second chakra and our creative/sexual energy. The energies of creation, sexuality and Kundalini are often co-mingled at the second chakra.

In our present state, we identify ourselves with this body which has a certain size and shape. We are not aware that we are all pervasive. It is only when the Kundalini is awakened that we become aware of our true nature, of our greatness, of the fact that not only do we belong to God, but we are God.

-- Swami Muktananda Pleasure is your birthright… How often do you allow yourself to receive pleasure? Do you become obsessed with seeking pleasure? Can you glean pleasure from the subtle and

mundane aspects of life? Are you able to enjoy THIS moment? Abundance & the Second Chakra

For true love is inexhaustible; the more you give, the more you have. And if you go to draw from at the true fountainhead, the more water you draw, the more abundant is its flow.

-- Antoine de Saint-Exupery Abundance comes in many forms… money is just one of them. Here are some questions to ponder and bring greater realization to your life experience. Do you celebrate the abundance you have in your life on a regular basis? Do you feel you need something that you don’t have in order to feel happy and satisfied? Are you able to see that abundance is more than money? WP Next issue… The Third Chakra www.kentondavidbell.com email: Kenton@kentondavidbell.com

Mental Alchemy by Edwin Harkness Spina

Back in the Middle Ages alchemists sought to trans− form base metal into gold. They searched for an elusive substance, the philosopher’s stone, which would bring about this conversion, known as alchemy. But to initiates of the ancient mystery schools, alchemy was primarily an allegory for the real work of spiritual and mental alchemy.

t

S

piritual alchemy is the process of transforming a less evolved soul personality into a more refined one.The founders of all major religions have attempted to expedite this transformation by providing rules to help people achieve this goal while also leading happier and more productive lives. Enlightenment, illumination and the perfection of the soul all point to this ultimate goal. Mystics from all religions have studied the universal laws to speed up this process, which they believe occurs over many lifetimes. Mental alchemy is the process of transmuting your thoughts to improve your life and expand your mind. The good news is that this discipline can produce immediate -- and is some cases instant -- beneficial results in your life.

Mental alchemy involves the replacement of beliefs that are hindering your development with positive ones that will help you. You might say that sounds straightforward - why would this be so difficult? It turns out it’s extremely difficult to change beliefs. There are three reasons for this: 1) Most people mistake their beliefs for the truth. Even if it’s not in their best interest, some people resign themselves to their fate because they mistakenly accept a belief as true.

2) Beliefs operate at the subconscious level. Most people are unaware of their subconscious beliefs, which are often in conflict with their conscious thoughts. For example, a woman may consciously be seeking love, but subconsciously she may feel she’s unworthy. Unless her belief is made conscious and transmuted, it will continue to sabotage her efforts. 3) You see what you believe. Less than 100 years ago physicists were trying to determine whether light was a wave or a particle. The answer depended on what you believed you would find. If you believed light was made of parti-


29

cles, then you could design an experiment that proved it. Conversely, if you believed light consisted of waves then you could design another experiment to prove that. The placebo effect provides another example. In drug trials required to gain FDA approval, 40% of patients, on average, will obtain relief from placebos. They get better simply because they believe they will get better. Placebos have actually helped people with Parkinson’s disease. The mystic principle behind these results is called the Law of Attraction or “like attracts like.” In the mystic world, and now in the world of quantum physics, we know that everything is energy. Everything has its own vibration, including a belief. People attract to themselves those experiences that match their existing belief system. They get to see what they believe. So how does mental alchemy work? Neurologists tell us the brain doesn’t know the difference between what’s actually experienced and what’s imagined to be experienced. The same electrical patterns are fired between the neurons in the brain. The electrical patterns in the brain reflect how we store and process information, including beliefs. The ramification of this is profound: you can change your beliefs using your imagination. It doesn’t matter whether the belief is true or not. Let’s take an example of a basketball player who misses the final shot of the state championship game and his team ends up losing by one point. This experience can be traumatic and will often reinforce negative beliefs that he’s a choker or a loser. Had he made the

shot, he would be a hero and filled with the confidence of a winner. Let’s say you are the basketball player. What should you do?

We know that everything is energy. Everything has its own vibration, including a belief.

First, go to a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed for 10-15 minutes. Make sure that none of your objective senses (sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste) are being stimulated. Take a few deep breaths. Your goal is to relax and get into an alpha state. Scientists have shown that you can learn new skills much more readily while in this state. Meditation is ideal for this. At this point, you should replay the end of the game in your mind. Only this time, when you take the final shot, do it with confidence and watch it go in. Visualize all the fans going wild as the buzzer sounds and your teammates carry you off the court. Involve all your senses and imagine how it feels to be the hero! Michael Jordan is arguably the greatest basketball player of all time, but by the end of the game, he probably misses just as many shots as he makes. But you can be quite certain he doesn’t dwell on the missed shots, but simply remembers the game-winning shots. You can do the same. Use the technique of mental alchemy and change your life!

Astrological Psychology

2012 Taurus - 4/20 – 5/20

Aries - 3/21 – 4/19 While being a control freak is less than desirable, it would seem that the Master within you is more of the guiding light than “controlling” to be “controlling”. So what to do as most people recoil from control freaks? The answer lies in the delivery. As the Creator within you is rallied up in your heart space of love, the delivery reaches each person personally. This delivery method is easier on you and yields a much higher probability that your wisdom reaches receptive ears. You are going to be relying on, more and more, a new vision of how life works and how you are going to be interacting with life. This is going to be exciting and very rewarding for you especially as you allow the friendliness within you to express itself differently with each person you interact with or even every person you see. Finding something sweet, beautiful, attractive, loving about every one is a real blessing for you. So, the more friendliness you emanate the more you will feel/see the Master within. The more you see/feel the Master within the more you project that essence onto others seeing only the best that is there to see. Wow! I told you a new vision is yours. As time goes along and you become more and more conscious of what you are committed to and as you put your commitment into action you will find more and more receptivity of what you have to say and who you are, the Master within, in and from others.

Rising up out of the former you, is a new you that is rooted in the purpose of your life. The new vision that you carry is deeply imbedded and will reveal itself in the depth of “silence”. Go inward often to have the details revealed. The biggest hurdle you have is the clinging to the past, which makes sense being what you know. Your new vision is new and while the past has prepared you, the new, in some ways, is beyond what is familiar, beyond expectations and beyond your comfort level, to some degree. So what to do in the face of the new? Rely on your friendliness and openness in all your interactions with others and also be friendly with the new you that is emerging. Give yourself a break and if in doubt, go inside and marinate in the sacred silence within.

or not. Face the sorrow that you have pushed away. Face the sorrow that and you will, in resolution, find much more comfort and space to be. You feel the burden of life that is for sure. Face that and you will notice not only sorrow, you will notice how you struggle to just get by; which is most of the time pushed aside because you feel helpless to do anything about it. Have faith and be assured that facing life actually gives you a blessing in the form of a new vision. Face what is, have patience with what is, embrace your ordinariness and from the folds of space and time, whala, a new vision of how to be, direction and hope. Then there is found an experiencing of what is from a blessed perspective finding how to go with the flow rather than fighting what is.

The future becomes more and more balanced as your participation in the life eases up, as you take what comes to you in stride, regardless of the immediate impression. Allow what is to be. Frequently check your impressions out in deep silence and be friendly.

In the depth of your ordinariness and in patience as you go with the flow of what is, there is a completion that comes. Noticing bells ringing may or may not be apparent, nevertheless there is a completion that as your life moves on the very being of your existence feels deeper, cleaner, clearer and a deep connectedness to All That Is.

Gemini - 5/21 – 6/20

Cancer - 6/21 – 7/22

It is time to notice your ordinariness because in it you will find connection to all that is, peace and humility. Find it now. Being patient is one tool that you have available. Look into the past at times and in circumstances where you already exhibited patience and do it again. Letting go of the need to “get it now” whatever the “it” is, will actually open the door for what you want. Sorrow is in your way, whether you know it

Connecting your heart and third eye is the harmony within you. That harmony is much like the communication of love between dolphins; which is set of light. Your inner guidance is your ally, as you open to deeper and deeper love within. One of the most powerful tools available to all of us, misunderstood by most, is your innocence. Regardless of what you have done or what has been done to you, under it all, in the depth of your


33

heart is infinite innocence. Know that, and tap into that innocence by allowing! Ah politics, oh politics in community. Any and all communities are factors to deal with in compassion. Political maneuvering is fueled by fear; know that and have compassion when it comes your way. Your change is aided by your willingness to let go of any and all “buts”, the wantings to have others be different than how they are. As you turn inward more and more, deeper and deeper you will see your way clear. Your future is really a bright light shining into the darkness of the unexplored. The rebel in you will fuel your exploration and your journey. Hold onto compassion for all sentient beings who are fearful. The are like children who are afraid of the dark.

Virgo – 8/23 – 9/22

Scorpio - 10/23 – 11/21

As the lotus grows out of the mud, all falls away, leaving the clean and clear Self. Letting go of all that can be let go of is a must; including the good, bad and neutral. It is your receptivity to the path of light and clarity that supports you. What you know in the depths of your heart is your guidance. Please know that the success you are realizing is only the very tip of what is available and what is coming to you; get ready.

Are you ready to reveal what you have been hiding behind, as the conditioning that has been covering your true self is revealed? This revealing can be fun, traumatic or mixed; it is up to you. To some degree, you already know that you have been handed a set of beliefs and ways of being in the world, the thing that girls do versus the things that boys do, the things that are ok in your set of faith based beliefs and so on and so forth. All we are saying is that when you discover that you acquired, which most children do, a set of beliefs from parents and caregivers that were theirs rather than yours. This is an awakening. Like we said above, this can be fun to discover, shocking, traumatic or whichever you choose. The good thing is that you are discovering the programing, which you may choose leave in or you may change. You will probably end up with an integration of the old and the new which is some of what you have already done and will continue the integration maybe a little more consciously. The exhaustion you have felt from time to time is from struggling with the beliefs of your loved ones, forcing them to fit and believing you are bad or wrong if you abandon those cultural, family and societal beliefs.

It is the intensity of your letting go and receptivity to the flow of Grace that is opening up to you. Keep it up and more will surely come your way. The rebel within is holding the torch bringing light into the darkness. This is akin to the knowing you attain from being present, that in the depth of emptiness you can experience the fullness in the emptiness simultaneously.

Leo - 7/23 – 8/22 In the depth of consciousness lost in the void, the infinite emptiness is the light also. Being lost is half of the way home; know that. In the totality of all that is, was and will be one has to let go of what is known in order to catch ahold of what is next. Change is there to support you, know that, embrace change and know that in the light of change is the field of all possibilities. Those possibilities appear too far away from what is known only because wanting to be comfortable in a field of change is impossible as long as there are demands. Letting go and trusting in the Divine is required to be comfortable. Integration happens as the letting go becomes a way of life. The thunderbolt that has been such a trusted part of how you show up, deeply fears the emptiness and deeply fears the void. It will become more and more painful in using the mind rather than the heart. The rebel within must let go in order to get beyond the mind and realize the completion that happens when the mind is relaxed.

Libra - 9/23 – 10/22 In the whirl of change is an equilibrium that you are noticing. Staying centered and having access to the content of the change is fascinating; enjoy it because it is enjoyable. Your conscious choice to participate in the change, your embracing the change and your ability to notice that in the change is an ever present constant, which is the work of the Master within. Now is the time, high time to embrace the adventure as you venture out of the cover of what is familiar into the light of a new day. In that light is a new kind of prosperity that appears to be fresh and pure, to the eyes of a child. Be that child and see. With the hands of a child, the soul of the Master and the unflinching willingness to participate in the new adventure, there is a sweet ripeness in the change you experience. Blessings.

The change that is happening to you is a whirl. You can get caught up in it or just stay in the middle of the whirl and allow the change to happen as it must. The real big deal for you is morality and the question of sin as it relates to change from custom, family and gender dynamics. At first you will notice a sense of sorrow that is coupled with a deep desire, a compulsion to hang on to what is, knowing that it is too late to do that. It is too late because you know about the conditioning! Your salvation and the sense of being complete is beyond illusion, which this change has in store for you. Tread lightly have fun and enjoy.

October 2012 ASTROLOGY continued from page 33

Sagittarius - 11/22 – 12/2 It is natural to compare in order to find out where you are at in relation to others abilities, income, looks etc. However, on the other hand it is unfair, unfriendly and unnecessary. Made in the image and likeness conveys that each one is a unique expression incomparable to another. Yet most engage in comparative analysis on a daily bases. Where does comparative analysis really get you? You either feel better or worse at someone else’s expense. How can this be a good thing? You must have patience with what is and what others think, or fall into a pit of fear. That fear has you postponing taking right action because of the massive amount of control those beliefs have on you. However, as your awareness of your true Self becomes more and more apparent, you become able to step out from the daunting way of being controlled by beliefs that were handed to you without your consent. Be friendly and curious as you sort through just how you are motivated by just what belief, and you will make a smooth and easy landing in to being the Master that you are. You will have to let go of all you know in order for the light of your true Self to illuminate your path. You have the support of Divine transformative intuition that is heart centered. The change that is afoot is welcomed by parts of you that have been ready for the change and who will show up more and more supportive as the change unfolds. Your future is one of slowing down to notice and to receive the blessings of awareness that come to you as you let go. As you slow down, your transformation is an unfolding that is also more of an allowing to be.

Capricorn - 12/22 – 1/19 Now is the stepping out of the covering

of your business as usual into the light of a new adventure. Proceed with your eyes wide open and connected to the heart of the child within. While you have already achieved so much success in specific parts of your life, you are ready to step into a huge new adventure. This will require some “work”. The Master within is clearly supporting you in a new way; believe it. You will be integrating parts that heretofore appeared to be so different that they would never come together. The integration is happening at lightning speed, so do not expect yourself to keep up with everything you hear from the Master within, yet do the best you can to follow through and step out into the unknown with complete faith, trust and humor.

Aquarius - 1/20 – 2/18 The view of All that Is, was and will be, that presence is there now. Allow yourself to be in it, without thought, without question, without expectation; just be present and you will know God. It is your innocence that allies with you now. Cherish it, honor it and know it in the midst of all that has happened to you and all that you have done. It this place of duality, all possibilities are available; all possibilities regardless of any argument or set of circumstances to the contrary. Spirit, God, consciousness never make junk. Step into a re-birth of sorts. Allow the you that has been quiet and waiting to emerge. Welcome that part, invite that part, and honor that part now. In spite of the “damage”, you have the courage to grow anew in the most unlikely way and in the most unlikely place; believe it. That part that is yet to be revealed has a receptivity ready for you to notice; welcome it now. In the future there is a celebration, dancing and singing of sorts. The cel-

ebration is the recognition of the emerging of the you that knows that it has something to say that can make a difference, and that difference is only beginning to speak up. Do it with gusto.

Pisces - 2/19 – 3/20 Sitting back is a signal. Notice where and when you sit back and just enjoy the view. There is something more there for you; much more. The first step is to simply notice it. You will have to go beyond illusion to catch the wave in awareness. The key is notice when and where you are sitting back. Some might say that sitting back is just enjoying the fruit of your labor or of the success; and it is that too. However, are you completely fulfilled in all ways all the time? Probably not, so take a look. Now, the action you could take in the areas you find yourself sitting back, could be in a way and at a pace never before seen by you. The experiencing of this pace of action can lift you off the ground giving you a view of life’s circumstances from a new vantage point. Understanding life and what makes people do what they do, and the way they do it is extremely funny and worth seeing because it provides options to participate with them that warms their hearts and fulfills a part of you that will satisfy your longing to some degree. The future is all about your connecting with and knowing the source within your true Self and in others. Get this into your field of participation, and life has a richness that is unknown by most and unexpected by you and me. Swaha Ron Swaha@Discerning-Wisdom.com
