Hi Folks, I hope you feel as I do that the winter is almost over and spring is in the air!  I am taking a break from writing Parallels, the third book in the trilogy to connect with you and share a story that exemplifies one of the ideas behind this trilogy.  I find it to be fascinating:
 
Jill Bolte Taylor is a brain scientist who experienced a brain hemorrhage and spoke about it in a TED talk.  Here is an excerpt:
On the morning of December 10 1996 I woke up to discover that I had a brain disorder of my own. A blood vessel exploded in the left half of my brain. And in the course of four hours I watched my brain completely deteriorate in its ability to process all information. On the morning of the hemorrhage I could not walk, talk, read, write or recall any of my life. I essentially became an infant in a woman's body.
She goes on to describe the experience of using her right brain exclusively for a time.  She speaks of the euphoria and expansiveness she experienced – Nirvana, as she puts it and concludes with this idea:
And we have the power to choose, moment by moment, who and how we want to be in the world. Right here right now, I can step into the consciousness of my right hemisphere where we are -- I am -- the life force power of the universe, and the life force power of the 50 trillion beautiful molecular geniuses that make up my form. At one with all that is. Or I can choose to step into the consciousness of my left hemisphere, where I become a single individual, a solid, separate from the flow, separate from you.

One of the fun aspects of writing this trilogy is the research into some very strange ideas that I can use in these books.  Right now I am writing book #3, Parallels, and my research includes the book, Leap of Perception, by Penney Pierce.  It is about changing the way you look at life and how you experience it by changing your perceptions. 
 
Our typical linear perception in which all events occur in a logical sequence will be a thing of the past according to the author.  In it everything is perceived to be outside of ourselves and that is where we look for everything – physical goods, answers to our questions, love, etc.  The new perception is a spherical-holographic reality in which nothing is “out there” and we have access to everything we need, not later or in the past, but now.  Here is a link to the Table of Contents of the book.  The website has some audio talks, meditations, and interviews that you may be interested in as well.

STORIES

THE MAGIC STORY
From March 2018 JVC Newsletter
If we are honest, I think we can all say that at times we have searched for a magic quick fix for a problem we faced.  I personally have purchased many vitamins and supplements that promised a multitude of cures or improvements of some condition.  I have read books that made claims to successful life changes, a healthier body, and revelations of secrets of the Universe. 
 
As an author I like to believe that books do actually inspire readers to make changes but as I say in my workshops, inspiration can come through me but motivation is all yours.  The ebook, The Magic Story, reflects that statement.  I downloaded my copy many years ago and the website link I have does not work now, but the source is in the header.  You can download a copy from my website:

LIFE AS A WAKING DREAM
In Perceptions, one method used by Guides to reach humans was through dreams, while the subject is asleep.  But we all know that by many people dreams have been attributed more value than just meaningless mind movies. The dream sequence in Perceptions was inspired by a story told to me by a friend of her dream experience of her recently-departed grandmother.  There was a specific message in the dream for her to deliver that was indeed meaningful to the recipient.  Many people have shared their dreams with me and they all said that they seemed so real that when they woke up they knew it was more than a dream.  Some heard from departed family members who needed to say something, often comforting words, and others have received warnings, or answers to questions.  Has that happened to you? 
 
One book in my library, Life As A Waking Dream, by Diane Kennedy Pike, introduces a new way of learning from and through your daily and seemingly mundane life experiences – think of them as dreams. By focusing on events that stand out intensely from the rest of your day or week, you can learn to understand and interpret messages from your subconscious. You may recognize an event as a metaphor that helps you to make a decision.  As an example of a flat tire could relate to your hesitation in moving forward in some aspect of your life.
 
The method is simply to recall these significant events with a different perspective.  If it had been a dream what could it mean?  You can find several sources to interpret dream symbols such as water, snakes, vehicles, or falling to name a few common ones.  If they have meaning in your dreams, why couldn’t they symbolize the same when you are awake?

Solfeggio frequencies are part of the ancient 6-tone scale thought to have been used in sacred music, including the Gregorian Chants. The chants were believed to impart spiritual blessings when sung in harmony. Each Solfeggio tone is comprised of a frequency required to balance your energy and keep your body, mind and spirit in perfect harmony.  They are said to aid in cleansing and regenerating cells.
 
The main six Solfeggio frequencies are:
396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear
417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change
528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)
639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships
741 Hz – Expression/Solutions
852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order
 
The frequencies are available from many sources including several apps and YouTube.  You can run them in the background as you work.

This is an excerpt from a book, Zen Koans.  A Koan, in Zen Buddhism of Japan, is a succinct paradoxical statement or question used as a meditation discipline for novices, particularly in the Rinzai sect.  Most religions are based on faith, salvation, and prayer. Zen is based on the factual truth of life, enlightenment, and meditation. It points to the essence of the life we all live. Knowledge is not sufficient to reach the core of life, so Zen cannot be taught. It is understood only through one's own experience.
 
A professor commuted from Tokyo to Nanin's temple in Kamakura many Sunday mornings to learn Zen. One morning Nanin served him tea. He poured the professor's cup full—and kept on pouring.
The professor watched until he could restrain himself no longer. "Sensei!" he protested, "it is overflowing!" Then Master Nanin said, "Like this cup, you are so full of opinions and speculations that there is no room for anything further."
Lesson:
Often the intellect is a hindrance to enlightenment. One must empty himself before he can learn Zen.
