     Is our world changing for the better? If you look around at all of the things that are going on in our world, you might say ‘absolutely not'. If we were to base everything that we believe, on what is going on in our world right now, what hope do we have in anything getting better? I would say ‘not one little bit'. If on the other hand we were to base our belief on what is going on behind the scenes in the hearts and minds of the human race, we may say without a doubt ‘yes'. Well, who's hearts and minds are we talking about here? If you are reading this then I would say yours, mine, and a growing number of people who have become or are in the process of, a shift in consciousness. An awakening as some would say.

     I'm sure that most people have heard of the New Age Movement that started some years ago and maybe you are even turned off by the label or even the idea, because you think it is just a bunch of weird people talking about a bunch of hippie stuff, stuck in the 60's. Maybe it is weird stuff, but isn't anything that we don't understand kinda weird? I think it's weird, but I also think that the more I understand it and immerse myself in it, I think it's wonderous and ‘I get it'. The more ‘I get it', the more I appreciate it, because I can feel myself changing on a very deep level. A shift in consciousness.

     Essentially, we are still talking about the date of 12/21/2012 as a reference point for all of the discussions on this subject in the forum. The Mayan ‘Prophesy' that everyone is talking about, when researched, has no actual documentation that says that this will be the end of our world. According to scholars there are no accounts of impending catastrophe in Mayan writings. At best, the end of the Mayan calendar signifies the end of a cycle of time, which the Mayan people consider a time of great celebration. "Mayan archaeologist Jose Huchm has stated that "If I went to some Mayan-speaking communities and asked people what is going to happen in 2012, they wouldn't have any idea. That the world is going to end? They wouldn't believe you. We have real concerns these days, like rain"." (from Wikepedia 2012 Phenomenon).

     So does that mean that this date has no significance? I don't think so. Looking at many different theories and writings from cultures all over the world, who point to this date as a time of great change, it is possible to weave a tapestry in the mind that may be the catalyst that the human race needs to come together and finally make the changes that are needed to create a heaven on earth. That is, if people will open their minds to new ways of interpreting what is truth,the changes will occur one person at a time. It starts with myself and then another and another.

"Be the change you wish to see in the world." Buddhist Proverb.

"I can't change another person. I can only change myself. Others tend to change in response to the changes in me." Unknown Author.

     We can focus our energy on changes for good or we can focus our energy on creating the destruction that we want to avoid. Science has proven that everything is energy and therefore everything operates through that energy. Our thoughts and emotions are energy that create our reality. I vote for focusing on the good energy. How about you?

     Some of the different theories to check out for yourself, are: The Galactic Alignment that just so happens to fall on the Winter Solstice of 2012, the arrival of the Age of Aquarius (much controversy surrounds this as to whether we are in it and when it actually begins), Terrance McKenna's Time Wave Zero based on his interpretation of the King Wen sequence of the I Ching, which he calculated to end in the year 2012, Hindu Vedic Astrologers (also controversial). Try visiting different websites that focus on these ideas and find out what they are saying about the shift in consciousness; watch YouTube videos on meditation and consciousness. What ever you are being called to, will present itself to you in perfect order for what you need to know, to grow on your personal path, at the time that you need to know it. Even if some of the information is inaccurate, that will be revealed to you as it is needed. It's all a part of the shift.......

Here's to smooth shifting.....

    Most people have heard something about the date of 12/21/2012, whether good or bad, it is something to talk about and some may say ‘or not'. : ) There are always at least, two sides to every argument, opinion, or theory. In this case there are many, some positive, some negative, and some neutral or undecided. The extreme negative are in our face from the recent film 2012, YouTube videos about planet X (Nibiru) slamming into the earth, among other cosmic disasters, and then there are the age old prophesies of Revelations, Nostradamus, the Mayan, and the Hopi. Even some of the prophesies are skewed by speculation or dramatized for sensationalism. The later two are not necessarily completely negative or clear. Then there are the more positive opinions and theories, from New Age Thinkers, Galactic Alignment Theory, Time Wave Zero associated with the I Ching by Terrance McKenna which contemplate the dawning of the new Golden Age with the Awakening of all to higher consciousness or a consciousness shift. There are also opinions from those who believe that something is going to happen but they are just not sure what that something might be, maybe a mixture of the good and the bad.

     What ever the truth is no one will really know for sure until that date arrives and we can all see for ourselves. Yet there will be those who get a thrill from spreading fear and chaos and those who will latch onto the negative ideas and stress out over the supposed coming doom and destruction. They will stockpile food and supplies, build shelters, arm themselves with weapons, and do all the things that can be done to survive a catastrophic event.

     Some may choose to go about the business of living their lives and continuing to grow and evolve in their individual consciousness', for their known purpose. Striving toward building a more loving and peaceful world, fighting pollution, and coming up with new ways and ideas for preventing and handling possible catastrophes, that may happen in the near future.

     Some may just shake their head and choose to ignore the whole thing with a ‘whatever will be, will be' attitude. Some will just not care one way or the other or be confused about it because of a lack of information.

     It reminds me so much of the 90's and the Y2K scare. People were really scared that this was the end. I remember how people reacted by doing some of the same things that they are doing now to prepare for disaster. Look. I'm not saying that it's not a smart thing to do, to prepare for possible hard times or even a disaster, especially if living in a place where disasters are known to happen or could happen. I also realize that sometimes these things are beyond any one's knowledge and may be unpreventable. What I am saying is that I don't think anyone can predict something with 100% accuracy, such as the end of the world....

     In my opinion, in order to make an intelligent informed decision about what beliefs a person chooses to accept, research, logic, and a sense of ‘knowing, a spiritual sense of knowing in your heart' what rings as truth for that person is the only way to go. If indeed we must go...

    Here is an interesting question for all of us. When faced with a situation that just really pisses you off, what do you do? Do you react or do you respond? Most people would say that the correct answer is to respond and they would be right, however what about on the inside. Think about it. Even though we may respond appropriately on the level of what is socially or politically correct, on the inside there may be a whole different scenario going on. We may wish any number of unfortunate things to happen to that person or use a passive aggressive approach and do something sarcastically to help them along or trip them up. Sound familiar? Oh come on you know you’ve done it, here’s an example:

     ‘Your co-worker, who already irritates you, makes another stupid comment at the most inappropriate time and then wants to engage you in conversation for the next 10 minutes talking about a topic that makes absolutely no sense to you. You laugh a little and excuse yourself politely, then go about your business. On the inside you are having a whole different conversation with yourself about that person and it does not involve sending them a nice bottle of wine.…..Later on you may “forget” to relay an important piece of information or do a small task that if left undone by you, you know will have to be done by that person….Day after day this goes on and things just seem to get worse even if on the outside we continue to try different approaches in responding correctly to the situation’….

     Sound familiar? It’s a vicious cycle and you can apply that type of scenario to any situation in life.

      Eventually we may end up confronting the individual or walking away from the situation completely. Then we have to try to sort through all of the feelings and attitudes that have built up over time and have added to our dysfunctional behavior. We justify that we tried every thing we could possibly have done, but don’t ya know, that same scenario keeps repeating itself in our lives over and over again in different situations.

     So how do we change it? One simple word can change everything. That word is BLESSING. Yes, that’s right blessing. Instead of cursing them, which is really what we secretly do in our heads with all of the negative thoughts and actions, why not try blessing them. It does not need to be anything more than just that one word spoken silently, secretly, with the same calm demeanor that we “respond” with on the outside. Phrase it if you like, any way you feel comfortable with, but do it no matter how you really feel, just do it.

     You may be asking ‘How can that possibly change anything?’ That takes us back to the fact that our thoughts create our reality. This includes what we think “about” other people. Play with that for a little while. If we think negatively ‘about their behavior’ or what we don’t like ‘about them’, our negativity invites more of the same ‘from them’. There is no expectation or anticipation of change. With a blessing, however there is an expectation or anticipation of change and there is no negativity in it, for either the other person or the self. This brings both people into alignment with ‘Oneness’. Now imagine if every one of us made this a practice?

     Let me end this with another thought. Does making this practice of blessing others when an irritating or uncomfortable situation comes in to play mean that our personalities have to change? Do we give up our sense of humor, our mannerisms, our personalities and become a bunch of pious and proper idiots. No. The blessing brings us into alignment with each other. It makes us more in tune to each others feelings and increases understanding, tolerance, and respect for one another’s place in this life. It may be a change that only occurs within us and not the other person. It may be a change in the circumstances or any combination, what makes it meaningful, is that there is no negativity coming from the self. It breeds empathy, compassion, laughter, and a positive attitude. That is what I want in my life…. How about you?

I see you….

    There are many ways of changing thought patterns and replacing negative beliefs. However, just the thought of trying to figure out what the different methods are, and go through the process of finding out what they are, can be an overwhelming endeavor to even begin. So here is my list of things that I have found in my own search. By doing further research on some of the different methods, you will be able to find one or two ways that work well for you.

Here is the list of methods that I have found:

   BWE=Brain Wave Entrainment is used to bring the brain into various states of consciousness through the use of pulsed tones that cause the brain to produce an electrical response stimulating different areas of the brain. In a sense quietening the mind for clearer thought processes. For a more detailed report go to:

   NLP=Neurolinguistic Programming is "the means to study the underlying representations within the mind in order to reconstruct behavior and turn such modeled behavior into permanent unconscious habit. NLP uses Modeling in three patterns of behavior; physical, linguistic, and cognitive." From

   Subliminal Messages= available through many programs which use visual or audio messages embedded in video or behind music or nature sounds. They can also be used in any combination including with BWE and or hypnosis.

   Hypnosis=Hypnosis involves an introduction to the procedure during which the subject is told that suggestions for imaginative experiences will be presented. When using hypnosis, one person (the subject) is guided by another (the hypnotist) to respond to suggestions for changes in subjective experience, alterations in perception, sensation, emotion, thought or behavior. A person can also learn self-hypnosis.

   EFT= also known as ‘Tapping'. Basically this therapeutic modality uses tapping with the fingertips at certain points on the body that correspond with energy circuits throughout the body. These energy circuits...or meridians, are a central theme in Eastern health practices and form the basis for modern day acupuncture, acupressure and a wide variety of other healing techniques. The essence behind EFT according to Gary Craig, in The EFT Manual is: "The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system." In essence by tapping these meridians, it is possible to release the disruption in the flow of energy and allow negative thoughts, beliefs, and emotions to be replaced by positive ones. It is more involved than that, but for now...the short version.

   Positive affirmations using short sentences with positive statements, usually in the present tense and with the use of "I am" instead of "I want to", "I hope to", etc...Can also help to change negative thoughts and beliefs.

    Energy Healing=The techniques used in energy healing sometimes called Aura Balancing can used a pendulum or the hands to balance the energy field (aura) surrounding the body as a preventative to disease and a psychological integration and spiritual alignment. the balancing occurs through a shift in reality based on spiritual mind and the expression of living love out of Source. Another method uses intention and the spoken word and can be effective even from a distance. There are many energy workers out there and you can find some of them at If you can center yourself and receive the energy, you will see that this can be very powerful in shifting you to the next level of consciousness. 

     This list is meant to offer several alternatives to explore and use for changing negative thinking and beliefs. As always, please do your research before using any of these methods, use what feels right for you, and come back here to look for more detailed information in future posts on each of the methods mentioned as well as new ones that may come to light in the future.

     Did you ever wonder why it's so hard to change negative thinking? After all, it seems that if we don't want the negative thoughts to begin with, then why are we thinking them? Where are they coming from? Did you ever wake up in the morning and decide; ‘Hey! I think I'll fill my day with negative thoughts.' Of course not ! At least not on purpose, right?

     Well....yes and no. You see most of our thoughts begin at a subconscious level and come from the deeply rooted belief system that we have learned throughout our lives, which began from early childhood. Things that are said to us become deeply imbedded in our subconscious minds and this is what we remember when a similar circumstance presents itself to us. If you haven't ever consciously worked on changing these deep rooted beliefs, then they will rear their ugly head when we come to a similar or familiar situation that triggers the belief that was formed at that time. Those are the thoughts that are most likely behind every bad day you have ever had.

    It's hard to change these thoughts because we have to become aware of them. We have to set our intentions to be diligent enough to catch the thought patterns as they present themselves. It takes repetition and trial and error. You may think that it's just too hard and give up sometimes, but then you have to ask yourself these questions.
  1. "Do I really want to change my life and clear out old negative thinking patterns?"
  2. "Am I tired enough of all of the unrealized dreams and successes that I could have had, if I had not talked myself out of them?"
  3. "What is my freedom from negativity worth to me? Am I willing to pay that price?"
  4. "What are some of the goals that I could reach if I could just change those negative thought patterns?"

    If you have answered yes to 1, 2, and 3b, and  you were able to put a value to the freedom and you can name some of the goals that could be achieved, then you are ready to start working on changing this for yourself.

     Sometimes we think that the changes that we need to make are going to happen by saying a prayer, reading a book, or attending a seminar. This can happen, but most of the time those kinds of changes are short lived. It takes some hard work to change something that has been with you for a long time. Just like a bad habit. We have to retrain our brains to think the more positive thoughts and establish new beneficial beliefs that will help us accomplish our goals, be successful, and realize our dreams.

     I'm sure you have heard some of these principals before. Maybe even tried some of these things for a while and then gave up a time or two. That is just part of the process. If that does happen, get up, brush it off, and try again. Don't entertain thoughts of failure and defeat for not being able to win the battle, as these are a strategically placed trap that the subconscious mind uses to keep holding on to the negativity that you are trying to get rid of. Why? Because, that is a comfort zone, believe it or not, the subconscious doesn't have anything positive to replace it with so it is familiar and comfortable even though we feel uncomfortable consciously. I know right?... 

     If there are thoughts that are so deeply ingrained that you just can't seem to get rid of them or control them, then the process becomes more complicated. You can spend months or years in counseling and therapy, which has its benefits and I have personally used this when it was needed. It gave me a foundation to work with for helping myself move into a better understanding of relationships and my own mind. However, in order to completely wipe out those deeply rooted beliefs, and continue to grow and evolve, it may be necessary to use other tools.

     I have talked about using NLP, BWE, and EFT before. I strongly believe in their use for rewiring or rearranging the way that the brain processes information. When it is paired up with subliminal messaging or hypnosis, the effects are even more impressive. I used to be afraid of things like hypnosis and subliminal messages, but since I have experienced their benefits I am fully convinced of their usefulness and safety. There are even programs that you can purchase that allow you to make your own audios or videos with subliminal messages. As a note about hypnosis,  no one can make you do something that you don't want to do, even under hypnosis. New technology is there for us to use and benefit from and embrace it instead of fearing it.

     Don't get me wrong, you should still be diligent about researching the facts behind anything that will effect your brain, but keep an open mind when researching and don't just latch on to the first negative comments or opinions that you come to. Anyone can easily find someone who has had a negative experience with anything on the internet. If you don't believe me then try Googling about something that you know to be a beneficial product or idea by typing in the negative version of the search, and see how many results you get. Again, that is a part of our negative programming. It's all around us, we just have to learn how to tune it out and fill our minds with positive people, ideas, and circumstances.

  "Any negative emotion that is not fully faced and seen for what it is in the moment it arises does not completely dissolve. It leaves behind a remnant."

   "If there is nothing you can do, face what is and say, ‘Well, right now, this is how it is. I can either accept it, or make myself miserable.' The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about the situation. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking. Separate them from the situation, which is always neutral, which always is as it is." Eckhart Tolle

     As always the theme of consciousness and awakening to your higher self presents itself. All of the things that are presented for improving life are working together to bring about the changes that are needed on an individual basis and on a global basis. We are all connected and we can all change for the greater good.

Prosperity, Light, and Love to all....
