Is One healing modality more valid than others?

healing modalityIs There Any Healing Modality More Valid Than Others? Do any of them work better?

Though it seems that the healing modality that works for you is the only modality that would work for anyone, the truth is that the modality that works for you is the right healing modality for you and for people that have an affinity to the same modality.

What do I mean by that, and what the heck is healing modality anyway?

Modality, just like when we approach learning, or self expression, has a tendency to choose us: we don’t have much of a choice in them.

In learning we can be auditory, or visual, or kinesthetic: they are learning modalities. Continue reading “Is One healing modality more valid than others?”

4 Stages of Consciousness… where do YOU live?

consciousnessFour stages of consciousness

I read an interesting article on consciousness today that opened my eyes to something:

You can ask a question of yourself, and depending on the answer you can locate yourself on the map of consciousness quite reliably. And you could ask the question “what is your vibrational frequency?” and though you have no numbers, you’ll know in what bracket you are by locating yourself on one of the stages.

The question is: What is my relationship to life? My life? Where is my consciousness?

There are four possible answers.

1. Life is happening to me.
2. Life is happening by me… i.e. I am causing my life
3. Life is happening through me… i.e. you are on this stage causing something to unfold through your special gift, or purpose
4. Life is me1

Now, why is this brilliant? First off, no map can get you where you want to go unless you can locate yourself on the map.

  1. In the first stage you are at the effect of life. It seems that it is completely out of your control, like the weather. Your attention is outward, and hoping that something will happen that will make it better or right.

    To move out of the first stage you need to consider that you co-create your life, whether you see it or not, and you’d better start paying attention to who you are, what you think, you attitude, etc. instead of blaming anything or anyone.

    In the second stage your view of life is that what you make happen will happen. You are driving what happens, and you are driven. You have goals, you have schedules, you have agendas. There is no power other than what you provide.

    To move out of this stage, you need to consider that you are co-creating your life with invisible and visible powers, and your driving is the least significant of these. You need to have the mantra “Let go, let god”

    In the 3rd stage you live your life as if life were happening through you. You are a conduit, life is expressing itself through you. Although this is a beautiful stage, it is still an unreal view of it. It is beautiful because you have talents, you have purpose, you have gifts and you express them as an expression of life. But you, the physical, individual you is doing it. There is a you, and there is life. Distinct, and separate. To move out of this stage you need to be able to relinquish your individuality and the separation.

    In the fourth stage there is no separation between a you and life, between others and you. There is just flowing. You may do things, but they are not your doing, the importance of doing disappears.

    No matter what is your current vibration, you can be called down onto any of these stages, and vibrate, temporarily, on that level. A sudden tragedy, a sudden lack, a newly revealed illness can all act as agents to pull you out of a higher stage. []

The Wall, The Ladder, and Your Life’s Purpose: How do you get Guidance from The Soul?

guidance from the soulMany people walk around with an immense amount of knowledge. Yet, in their professional life, they jump from one thing to the other. They’re directionless because they zigzag. They go to this direction and then they go to that direction and they go in the third direction and then they return to the first one, and on and on it goes.

That’s how my life looked for years after I finished publishing the magazine and this is how my friend’s life looks.

He’s my chiropractor friend. He has a business, he’s a chiropractor. He has been a chiropractor for 23 years. He knows a lot about how to adjust people. He has added energy work and Ayurveda but his heart isn’t into it.

So he publishes a newsletter, he does self-improvement work, he volunteers, he follows a guru, he goes to India, he goes to ski, he does all kinds of things. He even recorded an audio-book for me,  but after all this doing, you can see, that he has no direction, he has no path.

He has a lot of knowledge, a lot of possibilities, but no direction, no ‘Guidance from The Soul.’ Just restlessness, and a sense that it’s all fun, and it’s all good, but it isn’t going anywhere.

Here is this little story that may shed some light to what’s missing for him, and what may be missing for you.

In this story the job is to put a ladder next to a wall and that is the job to do. The manager gets the workers put up the tall ladder and then they are working for instructions to what to do next. Except that they put up the ladder against the wrong wall. What happened?

The idea came to put up the ladder, but the wall wasn’t specified. It should have come, but there was no leader…

The leader is the person who decides on the specific wall. The manager is the middleman who makes the workers put up the ladder against the correct wall, and the workers are the people who do the work.

When we are talking about your life’s work, or your life purpose, your path: who is the leader, who is the manager, and who is the worker?

Context, Mindset, Backdrop… why should you care?

backdrop context mindsetContext, Mindset, Backdrop… why should you care?

This is going to be a mind-bender, and at the end of it you’ll come up a lot smarter, and with a lot more power over your life… interested?

It is all about mindset! Context is decisive… and what the heck is a backdrop?

Let’s start with backdrop. Why? Because it’s the easiest to see what’s going on.

I say that the backdrop is more important than what happens in the foreground.

Someone says something to you and you are hurt.
Your boss assigns someone else to an important assignment.
Your experiment at making money with your first product is a flop.
You continually have trouble and emergency in your life.

The above statements are the foreground.

Depending on your mental attitude (mindset) you say it’s bad, or it’s good, or you have no opinion.

So far so good… are you still with me? Good. Continue reading “Context, Mindset, Backdrop… why should you care?”
