Belief System / Spiritual Tools / Books

Our journey has been interesting and exciting.  Initially we met many people at the Lighthouse Book Store in Crown Point, Indiana because we attended a Friday night meeting of people with various expertises.  Heather ran the book store and she led the meeting.   We had a Reiki Master, Inter-dimensional expert, a séance person, several meditation folks, and Heather had several interests.  About twenty people turned up each night and we had a great time learning each-others interests.  We did circle healing, Native American Drum sessions, and one night we did a séance that just about blew my mind. We were a bit cynical about the séance, but once we got going we attracted a ship captain who came through in the person next to me and he was looking for the light for many years after his ship sank in Lake Michigan.  We sent him back to the light.  Then an overwhelming smell of roses came over us, and it was the Virgin Mary.  She came to bless all of us and moved on.  We don’t remember any other visitors, but we sure do remember the experience.

Over a the years we met Tarot Card Readers, meditated in a Dolphin Tank, had several physic readings, dabbled in Astrology and still do, had several Reiki Healing sessions, and another memorable tool was we did a Past Lives Regression.  A lady from England was writing a book on Past Lives and she asked me to participate because we had a NDE (Near Death Experience).  The way it’s done is she guided me in a mediation where we started in this life and went back year by year and if we got to a year where something caught my attention, we described what it was.  She said “imagine a rope with knots in it hanging down and as we progress back to our birth the knots untie until we get to the bottom.  The year of our NDE did get our attention and we describe it to her and then progressed down to our 11th year where we almost passed when we got stuck in quicksand.  A man came out of nowhere and pulled us out.  Then when go to being in the womb we had to get into a deep meditation to break out to our first passed life. She said it was normal and to take our time.  Then all of a sudden we passed though a really bright light and there we were in 1940 flying a British Spitfire and dog fighting with German ME-109’s.  We shot one down and then we took several hits.  Our plane burst into flames and dived straight down towards the ground.  We were stuck in the cockpit and went down with our plane and crashed.  We then continued on to our prior pasted life and it was a few thousand years ago and we were working in a stone quarry cutting slabs of rock for the Pharos’s pyramid.  It was hot and dry and someone yelled for us to move, but we did not move in time.  A large boulder had broken loose and fell on us right where we stood.  We then moved on to another prior life and it was many thousands of years ago.  We were in a village located in a beautiful land trees and farms.  It was where the Gobi Desert is now, but back then it was fertile. We were riding on a wagon being pulled by horses and there seemed to be a gathering of the people who lived there around us.  We then woke up from the meditation and we were done.  We did end up in the book, but do not remember the book, but we sure remembers the experience.

We dabble in Astrology, only to the point of understating that we use Astrology for getting to know ourselves and others so when interacting with them we stay within their likes and dislikes.  Have you done your chart?  There are several free sights on line and all you do is enter where you were born, the time zone, and your birth time and day.  Usually you get a chart with your Sun, Moon, and Rising/Ascendant signs.  You also get a description of your traits and we suggest you read it. We were amazed how “right on” it was.  Our Sun is Cancer, Moon is Pisces, and Rising is Cancer.  Yes all water signs.  We used to hang out in a Astrology chat room on AOL and the joke was we could only stay if we wore a life vest.  When we meet someone new we make a point of looking up there chart.  It reveals a good perspective of what their likes and dislikes are.  Run a chart on your friend and see what it tells you.  Have fun folks, its all about growth and fun.

Of course reading spiritual books and attending lectures is a great was to learn.  And once again we say, when reading a book only remember what feels “right”.  Forget the rest and move on.

Our Starting Book list:

Mahatma I & II “The I AM Presence” by Brian Grattan.  Published in 1994

This book had the most importance to us and is loaded with notes, page markers, and highlighted lines of text. This book has everything we talk about in it.  It has some great meditations and explanations of “how to clear” and other tools.  We still refer to his book, but we know the energies have changed since it was published so we modify it to what we like.  We highly recommended it as a “must” read.

“Many Lives, Many Masters”, by Brian L. Weiss, M.D.  Published 1998. 

Another book that once we read it we moved from medication to meditation for Panic Anxiety Attacks.  We had Panic Anxiety for ten years and we were treaded with several meditations.  We met a doctor in Indiana that treated us with mild medication and when we found this book, we eventually eliminated the medications.  The book is If you are going through Panic Anxiety, we recommend reading this book.

“Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East”, by Baird T. Spaulding Volume 1-6 Published in 1964 we found it in 1996

Here is another book(s) that got our interest in far-east belief systems.  A visit with the Great Masters of the Himalayas for three years and it covers enlightenment, higher consciousness, and all sorts of awesome details about spiritual growth.  (We are reading it again).

We have many more to report, but for now these three are the most important for a great start.

We have nothing else to add at this time.  We thank you for your support and hope you have a great read. God bless all and Namaste.

Meditation – Week 2 – My Experience Continued

We had a great response to week one, and the most asked questions was “Why meditate?”  So because we can only give you our perspective and our experience, we are going to include each week a part of the history of our journey, which includes other teachings, but the common thread is meditation.

A long, long, time ago in a land far, far away was a book store named The Lighthouse located in Crown Point, Indiana. The owners name was Heather Harder and on Friday nights after hours Heather opened the store to a group of folks interested in metaphysical discussions and demonstrations.  We remember this because of two bits of advice from Heater that we alway follow to this day and they are , “#1 No matter what metaphysical path you  choose to follow, always have fun with it.” and “#2 When you start gathering information from books, people, etc. take what you feel is good for you and disregard all the other stuff”.  The Friday night meeting was where my interest in meditation began, and having the opportunity to investigate Native American Drum sessions,  Circle Healing, Inter-dimensional Travel, Reiki Healing, Astrology (A current hobby), Astral Travel, and several other forms of metaphysical practices was awesome.

From then on we collected all kinds of various types of meditations mainly from reading.  We started to practice meditation mainly for relaxation but also to grow spiritually. We used meditation to clear negative energies, and when removing the negative energy fill up with positive energy. I can’t think of a better way to get rid of “stress”, mainly because we believe the person who brings on the stress can get rid of the stress easy.

When the panic anxiety attaches started instead of embracing the opportunity to get past it, we fought it in every-way we could think of finally settling on medication. We dumped the stuff we had learned and fought it for several years and then only day “out of the blue’ we started reading a book named “Many Lives, Many Masters.” by Brian L. Weiss M.D.  Looking back from today we know this book was sent to wake us up to continue our path and it did because we started meditation again and after a few years we were completely off the medication.

To be continued…

One point we want to make is the main use of meditation is to get to a point where you mind is clear of all thoughts.  Enjoy it and choose to take this clearing to every moment of your everyday life.  Why?  Because if you are clear and something comes your way that you are looking for you will see it without all the daily noise zipping through your noggin.

This weeks meditation is great for bringing peace to your spirit

We have nothing to add except that we are praying for all the Los Vegas victims and their families.

Meditation – My Healing Experience

I have been meditating for over forty years and in the beginning it was fairly simple straightforward visualization sometimes to music or focus on an object.  Since then meditation has grown in acceptance and the availability to various types of meditation has also grown.  These days I have found that the best variety of meditation videos are on YouTube.com I subscribe to meditative Mind because their videos are unique and combine frequency, music, and color.  I believe that the frequency (Hz) is important because it gets down to the DNA Level of healing.  Before sound it more up to the person to visualize the movement of energy down to the DNA level.

Because we are a Reiki Level II Practitioner we found YouTube.com has some great Reiki Chakra clearing videos which include detail descriptions of each of the Chakra’s as the video plays.  We meditate on the chakra’s fifty percent of the time mainly because we have the experience of self-healing a five years ago when a question came up as to whether we would need Chemotherapy or not. I add two CT Scans and they saw nodules in my lungs small at first and then a little larger on the second scan. So they decided to wait three months and take another scan to decide the direction we need to go.  My doctor explained that after smoking for 50+ years this was common and that we should probably do some research on Chemo because he was leaning toward that as the result, not guaranteed, but strong possibility.  Form that day forward we did a Reiki meditation and prayed every night (3 months) until the day of the scan. I had the CT scan and the very next day my doctor called and I had to sit down to answer the call. I pick up the phone and the first this I heard was my doctor saying “You can fire me! You don’t need me anymore!”. I said “What!?” and he said “The nodules are all so small and some are gone since the last scan”.  He admitted that he was complete surprised but added that I had a 2% chance of this being the outcome.  After we finished dancing around our chair in total joy we now go for a check up every year and the results remain the same to this day.

Another instance was back in the late 80’s to the mid 90’s we had a several case of Panic Anxiety and were put on strong medication and we made up our minds that is was not going to be the norm for us and eventually we because medication free and we believe it was because we meditated every day for the last three years.

One other use of mindfulness meditation is on my post about quitting smoking. We use the meditation to get past the urges to smoke a cigarette and every time after that when the same situation came up the urge was gone.

We would strongly suggest learning Mindfulness Meditation  and we did at the Insight Meditation Center in Redwood City, CA. They teach based on Buddhism and it applies to mind, physical, and spiritual is every day use. They also have all their teachings in audio on their website at no charge.  Here is the link “Insight Meditation Center” the go to Audio Dhama.  There are some hospitals around the country that have Mindfulness Meditation courses available for a fee and Google has a free an on-line course and they actually have a Mindfulness Guru on staff (I want this job).

We feel so strongly about the importance of meditation that every Wednesday we are going to post a link to our favorite meditation.  Here is the link for this weeks choice:

All 7 Chakras Healing Meditation Music

We have nothing else to add at this time except that we share via “messages” the link to our fiends.
