Deepak Chopra is a well-renowned medical doctor trained both in India and the U.S. Currently in endocrinology, he was also the former chief of staff of New England Memorial Hospital in Stoneham, Massachusetts and the founding president of the American Association of Ayurvedic Medicine. His insights on both Western and Eastern medicine give him a more complete and well-rounded understanding on the origin of disease.
Hippocrates, the father of medicine, thought nature cured disease and although modern medicine is necessary for emergency purposes, it has recently taken a 90° turn away from Hippocrates original vision. The turn has been toward drugs and surgery, but many of today’s modern diseases can be prevented with maintaining a healthy mind and body. These solutions lack long-term sustainability and lack the intelligence of the body. Understanding this requires a different approach called “quantum healing“. Deepak Chopra describes quantum healing as “the ability of one mode of consciousness (the mind) to spontaneously correct the mistakes of another consciousness (the body).”
The Quantum perspective began with Einstein, who found that nature was not always predictable and expanded upon Newton’s straight-line physics. Planck discovered the measurable nature of energy, which transforms non-matter into matter, time into space and mass into energy. Later Irish physicist, John Bell, and English astronomer, Sir Arthur Eddington, both believed in a connection between our thoughts and the universe. An invisible force turns thought (non-material) into form (material). We know neurotransmitters perfectly match up the mind with the body and DNA builds RNA, a mirror-image copy of DNA, which carries out tasks in the body. From the quantum perspective, as we think and feel, we create chemical changes in the brain that set-off a chain reaction of bodily responses. Both good and bad thoughts alter the field of intelligence and thus the body for better or for worse. In this way, our stream of consciousness is the free circulation of intelligence between the mind and body.
Ayurveda is a medical perspective whereby symptoms are controlled by attention. In Ayurveda, every part of the body correlates to certain herbs, colors, minerals and even sounds. The use of meditation and techniques such as primordial sound are implored to initiate healing. Meditation brings awareness of thought patterns while primordial sound uses one vibration to heal another. Usually Om, pronounced AUM, is the vibration or sound used to represent the collective vibration or sound of all living things and is a way to connect to your true undistorted self. Ayurveda differs from Western Medicine in that it believes the war (disease) begins inside the body. Louis Pasteur’s germ theory, the cornerstone of Western Medicine, believes the war (disease) begins outside the body. However, if even Louis Pasteur himself admitted that his controversial theory was wrong on his death bed. Don’t you think its time for us to give up his theory?
Love and compassion are our highest qualities and in this state, we cannot contradict ourselves. True love and compassion for ourselves and all other beings enables us to live in accordance with nature. One way we manifest love and compassion for all is with what we eat. We can eat in support of nature and ourselves, but the ultimate gatekeeper of health is the mind. Carcinogens, stress, chemicals, fatty and processed or sugary foods, and diets high in animal protein can all induce cancer, but ultimately the body can restore itself. In the medical field, spontaneous healings are rare and not well-understood. Such unpredictable recoveries occur at the quantum level & are beyond what modern science can measure or record, they are formless.
The wisdom of the ancient Rishis of India was recorded in the ancient Vedic texts & predated the Egyptian pyramids by thousands of years. These texts revealed many of the concept found in quantum healing and Ayurveda. The Rishis discussed three subjective states of consciousness: waking, sleeping and dreaming and a fourth, non-subjective state attained only during meditation or prayer. This fourth state is known as our most natural state and from here we can destroy our illusions and rest in our own true nature. The Rishis also believed that all beings were not restricted by time and space, but were infinite. So think and feel from the heart not with the head, think good thoughts and feel good. Act in accordance with nature and nature will always provide for you in many ways. “In the deeper reality beyond space and time, we may be all members of one body.” -Sir James Jeans
Vaginal muscle exercises are the easiest and least expensive way to tighten the vagina. Many women consider medical procedures that costs thousands and thousands of dollars, but there is absolutely no reason to do this when there are simply exercises and techniques that can be done anytime, anywhere.
Vaginal Muscle Exercises
There are various reasons why you might want to do vaginal exercises. Many women simply want to enhance their sex lives, while others suffer from medical conditions such as stress urinary incontinence and uterine prolapse, both of which drastically reduce one’s quality of life. Fortunately, there are simple vaginal muscle exercises that can be done to both enhance one’s sex life and prevent or treat the medical conditions mentioned above.
Treating Medical Conditions
Most women do not work out their vaginal muscles, and at some point in their life they may experience some medical conditions. The most common condition is stress urinary incontinence. There is a muscle in the pelvic floor that supports the urethra. When the vaginal muscles are not conditioned, this muscle can become so weak that when you cough, laugh, sneeze or do anything that puts pressure on the pelvic cavity, your urethra will leak urine. This is very embarrassing and can sometimes become uncontrollable. The good news is that it can be controlled with vaginal muscle exercises. Another condition, called uterine prolapse, is more serious. This occurs when the muscle that supports your uterus fails, resulting in the uterus falling down the vaginal canal. The scary part is that in the first stage you may not know it has occurred. In the worst stage, however, the uterus can actually be seen from outside of the vaginal opening. Doing vaginal muscle exercises can ensure that this will never happen to you.
The Sexual Benefits
This is the most exciting part about doing vaginal muscle exercises. Doing vaginal exercises will dramatically enhance and strengthen your love muscles. The most important muscle is your PC muscle. This is the muscle that contracts when you have an orgasms. If you make it stronger with simple exercises, you will have more powerful orgasms; orgasms so strong that you’ll be left paralyzed on your bed. You’ll not only have more powerful orgasms, but you’ll have multiple orgasms. This is because your conditioned muscles will require greater blood flow. More blood means greater sensitivity, and thus more orgasms.
- Your man will also love your new, stronger love muscles. You will develop awesome control over your PC muscle, allowing you to clamp and clench his penis whenever you want. You can milk him until his eyes roll into the back of his head! You really can develop muscles this strong, and you’ll simultaneously be promoting awesome pelvic floor health so that you never suffer from the conditions discussed above. One thing is for sure, if you want to improve your sex life tenfold, then strengthening your vaginal muscles in the number one way to do it. It’s so powerful that not even the most expensive sex toy can produce enduring pleasure, night after night, day after day.
“Sorry, I’m chewing gum,” says Ray Davies five minutes into our interview, before extracting the offending substance from his mouth.
It’s a fitting interruption. We’re here to talk about his latest album, Americana, which charts his love-hate relationship with the US – and there’s nothing more American than chomping on a stick of Wrigley’s.
Of course, our most recently-ennobled rock star is best known for his writing about England on songs like Waterloo Sunset, Muswell Hillbilly, Sunny Afternoon, Dedicated Follower of Fashion, but his obsession with the States started early.
As a schoolboy, he was captivated by black and white cowboy movies and the be-bop records his older sisters would bring home.
After receiving a guitar for his 13th birthday, he devoured records by Muddy Waters and Slim Harpo. His love affair with the blues was so strong that when he wrote The Kinks’ first hit single, You Really Got Me he intended it to be “a blues song”.
“Then it turned out to be a pop hit.”
Somewhat disingenuously, he tells the BBC You Really Got Me was supposed to be The Kinks’ only song (even though it was their third single).
“I wanted that to be a hit and then I was going to get out of town,” he says.
“Unfortunately they asked me to write another one, and another one.”
The Kinks’ success meant Ray and his younger brother Dave could finally visit the Land of the Free – but things didn’t go entirely to plan, as he describes on the new album.
“They called us The Invaders, as though we came from another world,” he sings. “And the man from immigration shouted out, ‘Hey punk, are you a boy or a girl?'”
The band could have overcome the prejudice if they weren’t already in disarray – prone to fighting on stage, and let down by a promoter who refused to pay them in cash.
Things came to a head while taping Dick Clark’s TV show Where The Action Is in 1965.
“Some guy who said he worked for the TV company walked up and accused us of being late,” Davies wrote in his autobiography X-Ray.
“Then he started making anti-British comments. Things like ‘Just because the Beatles did it, every mop-topped, spotty-faced limey juvenile thinks he can come over here and make a career for himself.'”
A punch was thrown, and the American Federation of Musicians refused to issue the Kinks permits to perform in the US for the next four years.
“It was a terrible blow to our career,” says Davies. “We couldn’t tour. We couldn’t play Woodstock.
“Being a bolshie 21-year-old, I said, ‘Let’s make records and tour the rest of the world’.
“But deep down I was really hurt, because America was the inspiration for much of our music.”
When the band were finally allowed back, in 1970, they had to start from scratch, plying their trade in tiny clubs and high school gymnasiums.
“It was quite a humbling experience after being really successful before,” Davies recalls.
Yet the US became the band’s lifeline in the 1970s, providing adulation, success and financial reward as interest dwindled at home.
“We ended up playing Madison Square Garden in 1980, which is a sign you’ve made it back. So it was a 10-year programme. It was hard work but, in a strange way, we built a loyal fanbase in that time.”
So perhaps it’s no surprise that Davies sings “I want to make my home/Where the buffalo roam” on the title track of his new album.
Indeed, he moved to the US for several years, finding his spiritual home – and sanctuary – in New Orleans.
“I’m just another person there, which is really nice,” he says. “And I fitted in with the music scene.”
Living across the road from a church, he would frequently witness the city’s brass band funerals, which stretch through the streets in celebration of local musicians and dignitaries at the end of their life.
But his sojourn in the city ended badly one Sunday evening in January 2004.
Davies was strolling along an unusually deserted Burgundy Street with his girlfriend Suzanne Despies.
A car pulled up alongside them, a young man got out, and demanded Despies’ purse. She handed it over without any resistance, but Davies suddenly decided to give chase.
His assailant was armed, and shot Davies in the leg, breaking his femur.
“Why did I do it? That’s the unanswerable question,” he says.
“I’ve never really been the sort of person who would chase a man with a loaded gun. But I did. Foolishly, perhaps, and irresponsibly. But I did it.
“It was one of those heat of the moment situations, and I have no explanation other than that.”
He ended up in hospital, heavily drugged and, for the first 24 hours, an anonymous “John Doe”.
The experience informed a song – Mystery Room – in which the star faces his mortality for the first time: “My brain’s hit a brick wall / My body’s in free-fall.”
It’s partnered with another track, Rock ‘N’ Roll Cowboys, which equates ageing rock stars with gunslingers about to hang up their holsters.
“Rock and roll cowboys, where do you go now?” asks Davies. “Do you give up the chase like an old retiree? Or do you stare in the face of new adversaries?“
It’s a question that’s flummoxed many of his 60s contemporaries. Has he ever contemplated giving up?
“Every writer who’s written and toured for more than five years reaches a point where they think, ‘Do I keep going?’ or, ‘Where do I go next?'” he says.
“Every day I wake up and say, ‘I love writing songs but do I want to do this?’ and the answer is I do.
“I love making records. I love playing in front of people.”
America is ‘off-kilter’
For the new record, he sought the help of alt-country stalwarts The Jayhawks, whose deft arrangements provide a rich backdrop to Davies’ wry and incisive lyrics.
Was it challenging, I wonder, for him to walk in and take charge of an already-established band?
“It was a diplomatic situation,” he says… well, diplomatically.
“At first, they were trying to sound English in their backing vocals, but I deterred them from that.
“The reason I picked them is because they just play the songs. They don’t embellish too much unless I ask them to, which is great.”
The Americana sessions went so well that there are “another 20” songs waiting to be finished and released, all derived from Davie’s 2013 book of the same name.
“It’s a big work, but I hope it’ll be put together for a deluxe record later on.”
Is he tempted to write something more topical for that record, given the ongoing political turmoil in the US?
“Everyone who knows my work comes up to me and says: ‘It’s time to revive Preservation,'” he says, referring to The Kinks’ 1973 concept album and tour, in which a comedian becomes a dictator, funded by big business and using the media as a tool of control.
“It was a fun show but it had quite serious undertones,” says Davies, “and I think that sums up America at the moment: it’s a fun show with very serious undertones.
“I do hope America balances itself out. It’s slightly off-kilter at the moment.
“He [Trump] has still got to face Congress, and it’s still a democratic country. I think the will of the people will be heard, and America’s constitution is strong.
“It’s a difficult time of re-adjustment for them – but I think in time it’ll balance itself out.
“It’s a beautiful place but a dangerous place, as I found out.”
Are you wondering how to set boundaries with your difficult adult child who has a mental illness? It is hard to have adult children that make poor choices that cause problems in their lives and in their parents’ lives; it is even more difficult to have adult children who have mental illnesses that contribute to those choices. When our children have eating disorders, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, ADHD, OCD or any other mental illness, it poses additional complications and we may be inclined to “help” too much. Here are four questions to answer that will enable you to figure out whether you are helping too much. Answering them will give you guidance for setting boundaries.
Is your helping necessary? There are times when “helping” prevents your child from taking responsibility and growing into what he/she “should” be doing. There are also times when “helping” is truly necessary. You have to weigh the positive against the negative benefits of stepping in. You also have to take into consideration what your child truly cannot do for himself/herself due to the mental illness. This is an important determination and needs to take all aspects into consideration and may require you to accept less than perfect behavior and/or do more than you would if your child were mentally healthy.
Is your helping encouraging? All of your “helping” should encourage your adult child to do better and become more independent. It shouldn’t be so controlling that it takes away the incentive for your adult child to try or that it sends the message that he/she is incapable of handling his/her own life. Helping someone to help themselves is the goal. All of us learn best when we are in control of our choices and directly experience the consequences of them.
Is your helping healthy? You care about your child and feel responsible for him/her especially because he/she is “sick;” but, do you care about yourself too? It is critical that you do. What do you need? What do you want? What are you feeling? What is good for you? Is it good for you to talk to or see your child? Is it good for you to help? Is it good for you to have your child live in your house? Is it good for you to let go? Because of your legitimate concerns, you have hyper-focused on your child and what your child needs. This is natural, but it needs to shift. You may have worn yourself out to save your child. You have given emotionally, mentally, spiritually, financially, physically, and relationally. Now it is time to consider yourself too, because you can’t lose yourself to save your child and end up losing both of you.
Is your helping working? The definition of “insanity” is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Think about all the things you have done over and over that haven’t worked. It is good to have hope but it needs to be grounded in reality. If certain things have never worked, try something different. You have to analyze the effects of the things you are doing by looking at how they are affecting your child. Make a cost versus benefit analysis and decide whether each thing is working and whether something else might work better. Your expectations might also have to be more reasonable to be in line with what is possible.
The mental illness makes your situation more complicated and obviously has to be taken into consideration. When setting boundaries with your difficult adult child with a mental illness, answer these four questions so that your boundaries will be good for both of you.
For some, meditation is a highly spiritual practice used to connect one with a higher power or level of consciousness. For others, meditation can be strictly medicinal, in that, it’s a clever way to reduce stress and lower blood pressure.
Meditation is in fact both. The beauty of this tool is that regardless of who you are and your beliefs, it can be tailor made to suite your needs and desires.
In other words, a devoted atheist can be a devoted meditator and receive no spiritual benefit and yet still benefit from meditating. On the other hand, profound spiritual experiences can and do occur with those who take meditation to a different level.
I have been on guided meditations that have literally brought me to a point where I truly felt I was communicating with a conscious entity on a completely different level of consciousness.
Sure, some could say that this was all in my head, and perhaps it all was. In fact, it was all in my head. It was my mind that was somewhere else interacting with a spiritual being.
I guess the message I am trying to convey here is that meditation is a very important and should be practiced by everyone.
So what does pendulum dowsing and the lottery have to do with meditation? In case you haven’t read my bio, I have a fond curiosity for all things psi related. I find paranormal phenomena very intriguing and very real. In particular, I find Remote Viewing to be the most fascinating because it is taught and you can learn how to do it.
I was going through a period in my life where I was not getting the results I was looking for while meditating. Normally, I would have profound experiences where surges of vibrational energy would flow through my body, and at times, contact with deceased loved ones would come and visit me. This stuff all stopped for some reason and my motivation quickly began to dwindle.
Right about this time I was reading a book written by Dr. Courtney Brown. Dr. Brown is a mathematician, Scientist, Author of numerous books on math, physics and consciousness and an avid remote viewing researcher. Dr. Brown’s book was titled, Remote Viewing – The Science and Theory of Nonphysical Perception.
Dr. Brown’s book was very intriguing and incredibly enlightening as he commenced to make known rigorous remote viewing experiments conducted by the Farsight Institute over the past ten years. He divulged his blind, double blind and double-double blind experiments conducted and the statistical results were amazing. It was statistically impossible for remote viewing not to exist.
By the time I finished the book, I was convinced that not only was remote viewing possible but that I too could do this. I had found my motivation to meditate again. You see, in order to remote view successfully you need to quite your mind, and in order to quite your mind you need to meditate.
Now what about Pendulum Dowsing? At the time, not only was I having meditation motivation troubles and reading Dr. Browns book but I was also experimenting with pendulum dowsing. This is when it all clicked.
SIDE NOTE: In case you haven’t opened up a new tab in your web browser and already Googled remote viewing, remote viewing is a phenomena developed by the US Government in the early seventies in conjunction with Stanford Research Institute. By using a series of protocols, a remote viewer could actually psychically spy on government enemies regardless of time. That is, an event that had not occurred yet could be remote viewed and data could be collected this way.
This is not science fiction or some bad movie script, this is US Government Counter Intelligence and the program lasted twenty years.
Think about the implications. Here we have proof that looking into the future is possible. Now you might be asking yourself, if people can look into the future why are they not stopping disasters and predicting future events all of the time? Simply put, remote viewing works but not as good as you would expect. As soon as Satellite technology got good enough to spy on our neighbors, the remote viewing programs were shut down.
OK, back to dowsing, meditation and the lottery. I had an idea. Here, sitting in front of me, was tangible proof that one could predict future events, at least certain details to future events and although accuracy was not %100, it was proof that it could be done, and those who were experienced could do it far better and with greater accuracy then those who were new to the system.
This is when it clicked even a little more. Here I am dowsing with a pendulum. Pendulum dowsing is similar to remote viewing, that is, you are retrieving information from a higher level of consciousness via your sub conscious and this information is passed to the conscious via an involuntary muscle response called the idiomotor response. Think reflex. Remote viewers trigger this reflex with some kind of queue. When queued, the remote viewer will create a random scribble known as an ideogram. This ideogram contains information regarding the target the remote viewer is hoping to retrieve information from. The idea is to decipher this ideogram through a series of steps and ultimately end with useful information.
A pendulum dowser will do something similar but instead of being queued and creating a scribble to decipher, the pendulum dowser will ask a series of yes or no questions and watch the pendulum for subtle movements and receive answers this way.
I thought, why not put the remote viewing, the dowsing and the meditation together and create a system.
OK, now here comes the lottery.
So here I have a system comprised of meditation, remote viewing and pendulum dowsing. I needed a future target to help me with my program. The lottery is relatively inexpensive, the reward is tremendous, and the lottery happens every day. How about putting together a dowsing system based on remote viewing protocols and using the lottery as a target?
I did, and it worked better than I could have imagined, except for winning a million dollars of course. The system works, although it is early in its infancy and could use some improvement. I put together a 90 page eBook on the system and I show you exactly how I pick lottery numbers this way. You can try it for yourself and find out, first hand, that psi is real.
