By Patricia Worth

Acclaimed Native wisdom-holder and teacher, Ohki Siminé Forest, is holding a teaching Circle and Full Moon Lodge on Wednesday, May 14, from 7pm – 9:30pm, at Yoga and Nia for Life, 135 Commonwealth Ave., West Concord, MA.

During this Native Teaching Circle, Ohki guides participants into an authentic introduction into Red Lodge shamanism.  Invoking the Medicine of Wisdom Owl, Ohki exposes the illusory mirrors of Western culture from which many imbalances aris and which may obstruct people in their efforts to foster healthier families, communities, and nations.  Ohki shares a path of true healing for developing the neccesary intuition to conquer our fears, and gain keener discernment and strength.

Ohki Forest visits the Boston area for the last two weeks of May, during which she conducts Drum Circles, Teaching seminars, and offers private consultations for guidance from the Spirit world, discovering your Spirit Animal, and Limpias for cleansing and healing your Medicine field.

Find details of her complete program at http://www.ohkisimineforest.com/events/

Of Mohawk descent living in Chiapas, Mexico, since 1985 where she collaborates with indigenous Maya people in resistance, Ohki was trained and initiated by Maya, Mongolian, and Canadian shamans.  She has taught native Council ways and Spiritual Warrior was for 30 years.  She is the author of Dreaming the Council Ways: True Native Teachings from the Red Lodge and contributor to Original Instructions: Indigenous Teachings for a Sustainable Future. In Chiapas, Mexico, she founded a grassroots social justice organization governed according to ancient Council ways by serving the indigenous Maya in their resistance to extermination which gave rise to the US non-profit organization, Red Wind Councils. Ohki has been a celebrated presenter at the Esalen Institute, Bioneers conferences, Vedanta Centres, churches, colleges, universities, the Tesuque Indigenous Seed Sovereignty conferences, and the SEED Graduate Institute conference: Wisdom from the Origins with the 13 Grandmothers, where her humility, wisdom and profound knowledge of Earth Ways have brought inspiration to thousands.

Simple Ideas for Daily Happiness

Image via Tumblr

By Lee Neale

There is nothing particularly new or exciting about the following list. In fact, it’s little more than the mental laundry list that I stick on my refrigerator somewhere between the electricity bill and the pizza menus. Much of this is age-old wisdom, some reworked for the tech age. I’m sure most of it will be quite familiar. However, it’s always good to give ourselves a little reminder that happiness doesn’t just grow on trees; that it needs to be nourished with a little reflective day to day self-awareness.

1. Count your blessings daily. Focusing your energy on the good things in life brings more of them to you.

2. Learn to love yourself as you are. Perfection is an illusion. At every level of being we are in ceaseless flow and change. Embrace a lack of perfection and even revel in some occasional chaos. Crisis is Mother Nature’s way of saying hi!

3. Connect more deeply with your five senses. For example, when you are eating a meal forget everything and be right there with the meal: soak in the colours, savour the tastes, smells and textures. Feel the energy, warmth and nutrition as the food becomes one with your body. Thank the Earth for sharing this blessing.

4. Remember that true power lies within and not over others.

5. Compliment people on their positive qualities. Kindness shared is kindness received.

6. Happiness is a choice: seek out positive alternative opinions to balance out your worldview. There are an abundance of positively oriented news sites popping up all over the web.

7. Reflect critically on the true level of danger you are experiencing. Look out your window. Unless you’re living in a war zone, it’s likely you’ll see a pretty peaceful scene. That peace in the present moment is your reality: work with that, not the latest crime statistics.

8. The thoughts you go to sleep with have a big influence on your waking life. Visualising images of success, prosperity, happiness, generosity, love and kindness as you drift off into sleep, can have a profound effect on improving the quality of your day to day experience. Over an extended period, this practice can be a major life-changer.

9. Forgiveness: do you really want to keep carrying around the luggage of other people’s mistakes in your head? … NO, SO LET IT GO!

10. If you want to see more of something in the world, take responsibility for expressing it to others first. Want to see more tenderness then be kinder, more generosity then give more, more love then be loving. When you connect with these things within yourself, then you will naturally find them present in what is around you.

11. Make a habit of going out of your way for somebody. Even one small act of mindfulness can work wonders. The universe has an endearing habit of repaying you in unexpected and useful ways.

12. Time is the most precious gift you can ever give. Spend less time shopping for people and actually share that time with the person instead. Give them a laugh, a massage, a hug, an ear, cook with them or share one of their hobbies. No amount of luxury items can replace your presence in the eyes of a friend or loved one.

13. Praise and reward people for their effort and not for the success or failure of that effort. Especially children!

14. Social media is designed to enhance social life, not replace it. Balance social media time with real face to face interactions. Turn off the tech for a little while each day and be fully present with friends and family, especially at shared meal times.

15. Feng Shui your PC: shed psychological baggage by clearing your cyberspaces. How much mental clutter is lingering on your computer devices in the form of old emails, cached data, temporary downloads and unused files. Deep cleaning removes blockages from your online expression, which can stimulate more clarity, purpose and creativity in life.

16. Set aside time each day for just being instead of doing. Stop chasing the world. Sit still, relax, forgive, let it all go, be still and breathe deeply!

17. Spend time with animals, nature and children: they are treasure troves of wisdom on the art of being human.

18. Try to see life less as a problem to be solved, exploited or overcome and more of a mystery to be creatively enjoyed, explored and shared. In a word: PLAY!

19. Randomize aspects of your life to open up new energy and creativity. Do things that are out of character: take a different direction to or from work, explore different artistic tastes or food, try to consider different points of view.

20. If you can’t get to nature, bring it to you. Let more fresh air and sunshine into your living or working spaces. Bring in plants, play soothing music and spread delicious aromas.

21. Write a list of your very own happiness tips and stick them somewhere you can see them every day! Share them with your friends.

Future of human consciousness involves ‘third eye’ pineal gland?

Image via Tumblr

By Steve Hammons

Originally posted at Joint Recon Study Group 3/28/14

The pineal gland is a small, pine cone-shaped gland variously reported to be about the size of a grain of rice or a pea, and located in the center of the human brain between the two hemispheres, above and behind the pituitary gland.

It is also referred to as the pineal body, epiphysis cerebri, epiphysis and “third eye.” The name “pineal” is derived from the root word “pinea,” Latin for “pine cone.”

From ancient human history to modern scientific research, the pineal gland is linked with human consciousness and special awareness and perception. It has been explored as part of various spiritual traditions throughout human history.

René Descartes, the French philosopher (1596-1650), called the gland “the seat of the soul” and referenced it in some of his writings.

The gland contains photoreceptor cells and tissue, rods and cones, like those in the eye. And, reportedly, like the eye, it is connected to the brain’s visual cortex.

INNER VISION

The pineal is involved in the production the hormone melatonin, a chemical that responds to, and regulates our responses to light and darkness, the seasons and sleep patterns. The gland is also associated with the production of the important neurotransmitter serotonin.

Other species of animals also have a parallel gland. The pineal contains magnetite, the magnetic material found in birds and other animals that is believed to be associated with navigation. The pineal appears to be possibly or partially inactive or dormant in other species too, like it is in many or most humans.

The so-called “opening of the third eye,” or increased activation of the pineal, is associated with an alleged neurological phenomena often called “the rising of the kundalini” in the Hindu tradition.

This process is suspected to be the manifestation of some type of cohesive energy that integrates and rises within and around the spinal cord, and in the brain and human consciousness. It apparently involves some type of sub-neurological quantum energy.

Medical researcher Rick Strassman, MD, of the University of New Mexico, has conducted research suggesting to him that the pineal gland may be associated with the neurotransmitter dimethyltryptamine (DMT), nicknamed “the spirit molecule.” The pineal is also associated with other neurotransmitter chemicals linked to certain types and levels of consciousness.

In addition, the gland is believed to be connected with aging. The pineal goes through phases of transition in childhood, puberty and adult aging. The pineal may become less active as we age.

The accumulation of certain chemicals in the body and other factors in our modern environment might also play a role in diminishing the healthy functioning of the gland, some researchers claim. However, there are theories about how healthy activity of the pineal gland can be restored.

HEALTHY FUNCTIONING
Various forms of meditation, Yoga, health practices and other innovative approaches are reported to help activate the pineal gland. Many people believe that these kinds of activities assisting with the stimulation of the pineal help people perceive and tap into spiritual and quantum dimensions and realities. General psychological, emotional and physical health might also be improved.

During the opening of the third eye a number of cascading physiological, neurological, biochemical, psychological and emotional effects may occur, according to some researchers.

The process may occur sporadically and intermittently, and it may have components that are disorienting, confusing or even upsetting to the person experiencing them.

At the same time, many of these effects may be quite pleasant or even blissful, giving the experiencer the feeling of connectedness and wholeness with larger spiritual realities that can reportedly be very comforting and insightful.

What each of us has become accustomed to as our “normal” consciousness might be changed in significant ways by the activation of the pineal gland and the kundalini process.

If increased healthy activity of the pineal gland were to occur within the human population at a more robust rate and scope, and effective perception of spiritual and quantum realities also increased as a result, human evolution could take a leap forward.

Such a development might be helpful in getting us to, and past an important tipping point in the development of our species.

Rounding

Shibuya Hachiko Bus

Shibuya Hachiko Bus (Photo credit: Stéfan)

“Rounding” is one of the more interesting pieces to come our way. Essentially a memoir, Lee Neale’s unique imagery brings this unusual account to life.

By Lee Neale

Hachiko Square. Senses swarming with the immensity of bodies. Not knowing where to focus. Well-dressed energy warps around, and for all its pressing density it has a calmness. A purposefulness. Knows where its headed, wants to get there quickly. Floods the basin of Hachiko Square from its multitude of alley-streams all foaming in reflected neon.

But I’m this odd rock, all jagged at the edges, so the energy of the flow catches me and I tumble, tumble.

A Zen pebble I wish to be. Rounded so the stream whispers softly around. It‘s why I came here: to lose myself. To lose my boundaries, my ego — here in this densest spot in the densest city in the world, with its atoms so compacted as to be a single thought-form. Where better could there be? But rounding takes centuries, millennia and meanwhile I tumble, tumble.

“Been at this awhile,” my esoteric healer had spoken softly, as she smoothed my jagged energetic form. “A while.” And this of all times my last to enter the stream, yet still so jagged, jagged.

“Your rounding began a thousand years ago in Nikko, as a peasant with a fiercely intelligent and devoted Japanese wife,” she mused. “You first courted when the now giant Shimotsuke roadside pines were little more than arrogantly wavering saplings.”

This tumbling Dharmic jigsaw-piece whispered gently into my ear. This compulsion, ten centuries later to stop my car by the roadside and pick blooming spring flowers for my wife from among the pines. The compulsion to then push deeper into the forest and walk a narrow trail: at first for no reason.

But as the reek of boar stench hit my nostrils, I knew exactly why as I had known many centuries before, and I was tracking, tracking as I had once tracked, and backing, backing as I had once backed. For I instinctively knew, that I had crossed upwind of an ancient porcine adversary.

Exhilarated: my senses now sharp as the spear, which I had once hefted. The gulf of one thousand years snapping shut upon the moment. Upstream downstream one as it always is, but for the discrimination of the conscious mind. And this of all times my first to enter the stream. And this of all times my last to enter the stream. But still so jagged. Jagged and scanning with boar stench cloying in my sinuses.

Backing across a river to deprive the boar of my scent, upon the water-rounded stones I slip, falling into the flow again, again.

With soaking clothes, still scanning, scanning. Backing towards my car. A radiant mess of bouquet in hand. Deadly challenge snuffling timelessly at the forest-edge of my senses. Tumbling upon my jagged, jagged Dharmic form.

Recollection backs into Hachiko, with its atoms so compacted. But now I realize, Zen stone smooth or not, so long as I enter the stream, in it I will always tumble, tumble.

Science of Sedona: Electrical engineer explores magnetic energy ‘vortexes’

Sedona Arizona

By Steve Hammons

Originally posted at Joint Recon Study Group 1/10/14

For many years, stories and reports about the Sedona, Arizona, region have included claims of “vortexes” or energy streams and fields that affect people and the environment there in various ways.

Many people claim they experience unusual and sometimes beneficial effects on their mental, emotional, spiritual and physical states when exposed to these energies.

But these reports have been anecdotal and experiential. That is, people have reported interesting personal experiences, but there was little scientific evidence to support or explain such statements.

Phoenix-based electrical engineer Benjamin Lonetree has examined these claims using various scientific instruments and methods for more than a decade. He concludes that there are measurable outflows and inflows of magnetic energy in the Sedona area that do affect the environment of the region, including human consciousness.

Lonetree’s research is explained on his website SedonaAnomalies.com.

As has been reported by others, Lonetree agrees that the Sedona area’s geology is a key factor. High content of iron oxide (causing the red rock and soil there) combined with substantial quartz deposits in the area seem to play important roles in this phenomena, he says.

EARTH ENERGIES, HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS

Lonetree also has attempted to correlate connections between magnetic energy activities in the Sedona area and human consciousness.

By measuring human brainwaves of people (including himself) in the vortex areas using a portable EEG device, and matching that data with real-time measurements of environmental magnetic energies using a magnetometer, Lonetree says there appear to be clear relationships between the vortex energy and human brainwaves.

Since the human body (and that of many other mammals) contains magnetically-sensitive magnetite, there is a logical mainstream explanation for some of the possible effects on people from Sedona’s magnetic energies, Lonetree explains.

The composition of the geology in the Sedona area includes the high iron oxide in the sandstone, limestone, in combination with volcanic basalt embedded with high quantities of quartz (referred to as latites which contain 5 percent to 20 percent quartz).

Lonetree and others theorize that the Earth’s magnetic energy is being significantly affected by this geology.

In his research, Lonetree notes that a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) report about an aerial survey of the Sedona region found magnetic anomalies throughout the entire area. On his website he includes the following three excerpts from the USGS report:

- “The Precambrian crystalline basement is the most likely source of the broad magnetic high in the Sedona area. The long-wavelength nature of the magnetic high indicates that the source of the anomaly is buried.”

- “The latites, on the other hand, often are extruded from volcanic plugs and thus tend to produce intense, somewhat ‘circular’ magnetic anomalies (often as magnetic lows, because the latites are generally reversely polarized).”

- “Geologic structures (such as faults or igneous intrusions) often produce small magnetic fields that ‘distort’ the main magnetic field of the Earth.”

In addition, the quartz crystals themselves also emit magnetic forces, Lonetree states. So, there may be combinations of sources for, and effects of the magnetic fields in the Sedona area, he indicates.

TRANSMITTERS AND RECEIVERS

How do these magnetic forces, fields and flows affect humans? Do they simply affect the magnetite in our bodies? Or, are there more profound connections too?

Lonetree speculates that there could be effects that we do not yet fully understand.

The layers and combinations of natural minerals and other factors could result in the region having characteristics similar to a type of natural transistor, transmitter or receiver or some kind, Lonetree points out.

Additionally, he notes that there are ancient volcanic lava shafts or tubes with distinct mineral composition in the region. These may provide channels for the geomagnetic energy being emitted from within the Earth resulting in a spinning or vortex form of energy.

That outflow of magnetic energy then returns to Earth nearby as an inflow vortex, Lonetree says. These outflows and inflows may affect humans in different ways.

And what about the idea put forth by many that Sedona may actually be connected to other dimensions through unique combinations of Earth energies and other natural forces? Could that explain the many other reports over the decades about unusual sightings, encounters and experiences in the Sedona area?

Lonetree does agree with what a Navajo man once told him … that Sedona is a place where Mother Earth speaks to us. Lonetree’s research has proven to him that this viewpoint is scientifically valid.

Sedona may truly be a unique place where our connectedness to this planet, Nature and ourselves is especially strong and clear.

Meditation for Healing and Self Improvement

Image via Tumblr

By Alain Rodriguez

Whenever speak to someone about meditation I always get the same question. ‘How DO you meditate?’ It doesn’t surprise me that many people don’t meditate at all or don’t even know how to. What surprises me is how they have not utilized it at all. We live in a fast paced society. We are surrounded by the stress of day to day life creating a never ending routine that one day will get the best of us. I believe that meditation is one of the best tools to end the routine of everyday life that fogs us from looking at life as objects that create a whole. Meditation opens our mind to eliminate the stress that we accumulate throughout the day by freeing our mind of its repetitive thoughts. One should begin their day with a fresh state of mind as if each day is spontaneous.

All it takes to meditate is to clear your mind from any issues or thoughts and just focus on absolutely nothing. Now, this may seem like a difficult task, but after some time, one will eventually be able to control their thoughts. Either way, whether you are a beginner or not, just the fact that you set some time to relax is enough to get you started on a stress-free life. I will discuss some methods one can practice either at work or at home even if you only do them for 15 minutes. Just a few minutes of your day can aid you an achieving a sense of peace in your life and will help you see the world in a different light.

Whether you are sitting in your home, office chair, or car, it is best if you straighten your back. Next, I prefer to close my eyes, but I have also heard of people also gazing into ‘nothing’. I believe either manner is fine as long you are able to adjust well and achieve a state of relaxation. We will begin by breathing in through the nose and then exhaling through the mouth. If you find it bothersome to breathe this way, since I have had people tell me this before, you will eventually form a habit. If after a while you still feel bothered, you can adjust your breathing to how you feel more comfortable. Meditation is all about being able to relax. Clear your mind and dismiss any thoughts that might be disturbing you. I personally use a lot of visualization to clear my mind by keeping it busy. For example, I imagine a white light that descends from the sky and surrounds my body. I imagine myself breathing in this light and go into my lungs. I feel it pumping through my veins as all the negative energy I have accumulated disappears. You can do this as long as you’d like if it keeps you relaxed and focused. I believe that visualization as a great method of healing.

Another strategy one can use to meditate is by chanting mantras. If you do not know any mantras, there are a lot of artists who have recorded CDs with several chants. When meditating, if listening to one of these CDs, try focusing on the music and the words being chanted. Eventually this will clear your mind and the music will either become white noise or take on a journey! When reciting mantras, focus on the vibrations of each mantra. Feel those vibrations travel your body. Feel each word exit towards the universe sending a message of peace.

Meditation can take as long as you’d like. Whenever you feel it is right to finish. You can stop, take a deep breath, get up and stretch, and continue with your day. I personally take a deep breath, thank the universe for its blessings, and then stretch by spreading my arms like a tree as if reaching for the blessings the world has to offer. Whenever my meditation sessions are over, I always find myself in a better mood and feel more radiant. I hope you find the peace you desire and may my methods of meditation shine a light to your life.

The Meaning Behind Not Eating From The Tree Of Knowledge

English: Tree of Knowledge by Mordecai MOREH ע...

Tree of Knowledge by Mordecai MOREH עברית: מרדכי מורה – תמונת פרופיל (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

By Eric Robert Nielsen

Tree Knowledge

Many people believe the Garden of Eden’s Tree of Knowledge is a physical location on earth. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

Tree Knowledge is found when someone turns within as Jesus has stated. It also is associated with the Bible’s Baptism by Fire and can be verified by at least two other religions– Buddhism and Taoism.

Tree Knowledge is gained when a person successfully is able to completely leave this world behind through the proper use of meditation or centering prayer.

During the experience of passing through the symbolic Garden of Eden.The point represented by eating the apple from the Tree of Knowledge, is the exact moment the veil goes up between God and the Soul.

The Tree Knowledge acquired at this point is the soul gaining a sense of self as being separate from God.It is where God cuts the Soul loose to live in the world. This fact is easiest understood by the person having this type of experience, over someone who has not.

Tree Knowledge at this point is also Jesus’ Baptism by Fire. Because other than the Soul becoming separate from God, the Soul is also given the five senses to live in human form in the physical world.

The Tree Knowledge relating to the Baptism by Fire is based on the feeling created after the five senses are placed into the Soul. The feeling is that of being totally bathed in an uncontrollable burning desire to want everything and anything that will present itself.

Tree Knowledge

One should understand that this is a very primal desire, as the Soul is burning with uncontrollable want, when no-thing has yet presented itself to the Soul, as an object of that want.

The Tree Knowledge from the view of the Soul is that movement has now begun as the Soul begins to head quickly toward the physical world.

Someone not experienced in these matters, like myself, when going through this is rocketed forward by burning desire, holds on and will go where ever the Soul ends up.

A person who is experienced with what goes on when passing through this part of the Garden of Eden, can remain calm, as that statement is associated with controlling desire or want.

By not letting the desire build within the Soul or a better way to make the point would be to say ‘not become overwhelmed with desire to want,’ can stop the process and return back into the Kingdom of God. This is Tree Knowledge.

Tree Knowledge

Though Buddha doesn’t mention the place that he obtains this knowledge, he none the less gave a Fire Sermon on the power of desire and how it burns within us all; affecting everything we do in this life, which is the result of our constant sorrow.

Buddha’s warning as it relates to not eating of the apple for Christians is to not get attached to the dualistic way life plays with our desires to satisfy the urge of the five senses.

His Tree Knowledge is that the five senses are a perfect match for every object associated to each of the five senses. This causes us to burn with desire for sensual satisfaction, which cannot ever be controlled unless a person puts more strength and effort into going within through meditation or prayer, rather than allowing the senses to keep the person attracted to the physical world.

From ‘The Secret of the Golden Flower,’ the Taoist Tree Knowledge has the point of eating the apple being compared to eating spirit-energy, which causes a man to be born. The Taoists also mention that the movement out into the physical world can be reversed, causing the Soul to again merge with its higher self.

The spirit-energy corresponds with fire mentioned in Christianity, as it is associated with the Taoist symbol for clinging. Fire in Christianity, as it related to Baptism by Fire has everything to do with being bathed completely in desire, which is the same desire needed to fuel the desire to live.

The Tree Knowledge to take from this material is this. Thinking about God focuses a person’s interest back again to the territory within, where the Kingdom of God is located. This is done by focusing your attention on your deepest self (the self behind all you think and do). This is the definition of God as he exists in you.

To ignore God causes us to focus our attention on the only place it can be placed–out into the physical world. This causes you to forget the importance of who the self/ you is. When the self is forgotten, so is respect for the self/ God, which is identical in others. This causes the divide between humans resulting in the rippling effect of separation in our world community.

For more information on this subject, stop by and visit us to watch the video.This video is part of our Human Soul Series of videos. This concludes Tree Knowledge of why we should not to eat from the Tree of Knowledge.
