Big God Yes

There’s a surge of people expressing their experiences with the Law of Attraction, a life process known by great achievers throughout the earth. Some feel it’s about vision boards and mantras. Others believe you must think of something for a long period of time as a separate exercise of some sort. Few understand the deeper, subtle, and complex facets of it all in every moment of our lives.

Science now knows there is a force fields all around us. Dark matter is what we used to call space. There is no “space” there is only matter in different forms. We literally mold our lives from the matter around us, like molding clay with our thoughts.

Besides the quantum-physics aspect of the law of attraction, there is a more understandable, physical aspect Id’ like to share.

Here’s a good example. I was preparing to practice yoga in my home and I invited my love to join me. She came out of the room and said, “practice with you separately?” Why yes, I replied. I was granting her wish. Come to find out later it was not what she wanted. She wanted to practice with me, for me to lead the practice together.

What happened? She called forth or evoked the energy of practicing separately. If she had not brought forth the thought I would have not granted it. This is a “ask and you shall receive” moment, for you attract what you fear the most. Had I thought about it more, I may have asked more details about her request.  Such thoughts were not present within me because I was already preparing my practice. In the practice we eliminate thought and distraction to move into being. So I granted her request and stayed in a state of simplistic energy.  Think of it as “Your wish is granted and I don’t need to inquire further”. Just know your desire and ask for that. Passivity can lead to confusion.

Law of attraction works like this in every moment. When we think or speak of something, we are evoking the creative energy of that thought, the ability to create it. Some of these creations are immediate and others are over time as the energy we put forth is a smaller subtler voice in our heads.

In conversations we may acknowledge certain beliefs when a topics comes up, sometimes passively, but do not put our attention to it regularly.  These little acknowledgments are like small  bank deposits. This is also known by motivational guru Jeff Olson as the Slight Edge, little things we say, do and believe over time that culminate into reality. It ‘s a constant law  which can disrupt our life or bring us constant joy and happiness .

The God energy we seek to humble ourselves to, wishes for us to be happy and achieve our desires. This God force provides our ability to use free will to create it.  Think of God as saying yes to our every thought whether we really want it or not. It is for us to understand this great power. Evoking or calling forth problems is in our hands, or should I say, minds.

Be the change you wish to see. Be how you wish to be. If you wish to be happy, healthy and wealthy. Begin with being happy. Personal happiness does not require any external circumstances. How about using the slight edge and begin to be healthy? How about using your happy, healthy self to guide you to the perfect accomplishment for your version of wealth?

In yoga we surrender to the Slight Edge philosophy. We seek to only move forward in our physical transformation by a single micro-movement at a time. The true practice of yoga forces us to be in the moment. We learn that through surrender and humility transformation comes quicker be it reconditioning or healing . It’s a true example of the subtlety of the Law of Attraction. We are placing the vision of what we want in our mind. Then we surrender to the experience rather than forcing it and it comes quicker. It’s a lesson I’ve taken to heart and practiced in all aspects of my life.

Whether immediate or slow you mold the space around you every moment. Mold your masterpiece. I hope this helps.

Much Aloha

Coastline Complexity – Our Two Earth Worlds

Our coastline boasts great beauty, but can be something of a paradox.

Coastlines the merging of two worlds, water-world with land, the underworld with the over-world.

the ancient seas and our two worlds
Coastline Complexity

Where coastlines exist, humans find magic.  We ponder life, seek answers and appreciate nature’s magnificence.  While living most of my life within coastal cities, I have found the magnificence of the coastline carries some interesting oppositions. A coastline draws the wealthy to build homes and the homeless to find comfort.  The coastline is also where waste pushed into the sea is returned to  land. On the most isolated beaches we find tons of waste returned from the sea. On warm weather beaches, homeless and the destitute leave waste of their own.

Coastlinesare the dumping point for our misdeeds

All walks of life seek to retreat and vacation on coastlines. We swim in the water where it is safe,  safe from the wild deep and dangerous creatures, but it’s the crust, the outer edge, the dregs of earth’s ripple we swim.

The coastline can be like a kitchen blender stirring and breaking everything up into small pieces including body parts of those using the coastline as a sport. We find treasures and secret messages in bottles sent out to sea in hopes of reaching a magical outcome. Our fantasy with the coastline runs deep. Even the Sirens of Mythology used the coastline to attract and destroy those whom fall prey to the voice of the coastline creatures.

taming the oceans waves  Surfing the edge of our coastline

Coastlines are transition points.

Rogue waves consume land life.  Others leap from the mystery of life on the edge of seaside cliffs. There is a human drive to see and feel the coastlines beauty unaffected by the transitional boundary lines.

Rouge waves on our coastlines

We fall into the fantasy of white water.  As a child this white water was mingled with black tar which took hours to scrub off and fade away.   Many sprinkle the ashes of loved ones on the waters edge, as if the sea entitles them to merge with a stronger force, to spread throughout the planet and travel to distant worlds.

offering ashes of loved ones from our coastlines

On a Santa Monica beach, a rogue wave washed my infant body from the comfort of my mothers arms under our shaded beach blanket. When the wave retreated I was found lying in the arms of earths sandy berm.  To this day I get anxious when I’m away from the sea for too long.  Sometimes I feel my infant body replaced with the spirit of another,  a more watery being. Or did the feeling of our saline earth washing over my new skin possess me to never forget….

we are earths mystery

We are water creatures on land. We are the mystery.

In yoga we seek to always be in the mystery. Surrendering allows us to experience the now. Yoga asanas or postures become an intense experience with the attitude of surrender. We learn to be unknowing. We practice without expectation, for the wave of uncertainty looms in every moment. Seeking to be present allows the subtle energy of life show us who we are.

Eyes Open to Prosperity

Discovering prosperity in our lives must be cultivated.

Many people attempt to find prosperity rather than simply becoming open to receive it. Prosperity comes in many shapes and forms, some money others gifts or sudden meetings. Keeping our eyes open to prosperity starts with believing we are always on the path with leads to prosperity.

There is a little trap that humans get themselves into when it comes to the ability to attract prosperity and new events into their lives.

Typically, we make decisions based on our knowledge and experience but if we are seeking something outside of our experience or knowledge, what framework do we use to evaluate our decisions in areas of newness?

In order to see something different, we need to transform the eyes from which we see. For we are only able to see in accordance to the strength of our eyes. Our eyes being not only the physical lenses in our head, but the inner eye.

Visualization techniques will program our energy field to attract what we choose to create.

However, if we continue to make choices based on old knowledge, we might completely miss a doorway that just opened up.  To leave old knowledge one has to use intuition and faith for new decisions.

I have worked with business associates who reached out for new people to assist them in growing their business. Then when the premier candidate came to them, they began to treat them and react to them from old beliefs and pushed the premier person right out of their experience. Why? Because this person’s behavior was unfamiliar and therefore brought a sense of fear. Fear led to mistrust and confusion. The owner wasn’t able to let-go and trust, and lost the support they were seeking. The process of letting go also relies on intuition.

Intuition is strengthened by quieting the mind and forming a sense of silence in which we can hear the inner self speak through deep senses of inner knowing. Inner knowing can also be in the form of little voices in our head answering our questions before we even ask them. Even in unfamiliar territory, one can be gently guided to the right decision and perfect circumstance.

We must strengthen the eyes from which we see to view new horizons.

What is the best exercise for this?     Do you need to ask?

How about a PROSPERITY MEDITATION.

Much love

Falling Down and Getting Up Again

The desire for a good live, food, water and comfort is something on everyone’s mind. Sometimes we get so excited for life we wish to use our skills and achieve great things.  IN the process of achievement comes an even greater factor of circumstances which may hinder or create a pitfall in our process. After a while, we learn that these pitfalls are part of the process and our ability to overcome them is the real story of our lives.

Growing up a middle class family, I never felt I was missing anything. We always had Christmas presents. There was always food on the table. I could join sporting teams and given every opportunity the privileged 15% of people in the world get to experience.

Later in life, when I realized how privileged Americans were, I began to wonder what it must be like to be someone who wakes up to wonder if they would have food to eat, or where they might be sleeping. In our privileged culture we have the opportunity to experience such disparity by choice. That is, if a person over-extends themselves or entrepreneur experiences a venture collapse lifting oneself, or a family up from the bottom can be a traumatizing experience, but we still have the opportunity to do it again.

Anyone who’s trekked into the landscape of creating their own way, developing new ideas or companies, and mastering new ways of doing business will eventually encounter a roadblock, hit a wall, even experience complete destruction of well-thought-out plans. Every entrepreneur knows of the risks involved. It is often said, if you’re not ready to lose it all, you won’t have the strength to make it through. Those who’ve ever accomplished anything had to encounter pitfalls and failures. The failures, however, are not failures of self, but only lessons to direct the next step.

famous famous people whove overcome great obsticles

There are hundreds of examples. Here are a few you may or may not know:

~Soichiro Honda’s unique vision got him ostracized by the Japanese business community.

~R.H. Macy had a series of failed retail ventures throughout his early career.

~Colonel Harland David Sanders was fired from dozens of jobs before founding a fried chicken empire.

~Thomas Edison’s teachers told him he was “too stupid to learn anything”.

~After Harrison Ford’s first small movie role, an executive took him into his office and told him he’d never succeed in the movie business.

~Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, had his first book rejected by 27 different publishers.

~A young Henry Ford ruined his reputation with a couple of failed automobile businesses.

~While developing his vacuum, Sir James Dyson went through 5,126 failed prototypes and his savings over 15 years.

~J.K. Rowling was a single mom living off welfare when she began writing the first “Harry Potter” novel.

(Business Insider online 2016)

These pitfalls are part of the process. Through my recent encounter with failure, I discovered the truth of what I’ve spoke about as a teacher. If one has access to water, the battle is half  solved. Having access to water and exercising is the foundation for a healthy life. Food can be found. In Hawaii, you can find many wild edible plants that are healthy and medicinal. Maintaining a healthy mind through it all is what keeps you going. It means letting go of attachment and expectations. Maintaining physical and mental health really is the primary force for living well. From there, one can use the strength to create anew.

I see many people with lots of “things” who can barely move and seem so uncomfortable in their body. In this fundamental knowing, I see the stark contrast of how we’ve created living in this material world. People who are fit and at their natural body weight do not need to each so much. It is the nutrient density of the food that determines the quantity. Wise ones know this. I eat a simple dish of dark greens and find fullness and vibrancy. If we as a species moved into this simple wisdom all our problems would be solved, but gluttony and external gratification have become the teaching methods of the young, so much so that there is a generation of people who know nothing else. It is also these attachments that puts stress on the one attempting to lay it on the line and risk it all for a new life.

Those who’ve been stripped of external things either move into wisdom or panic at the loss, and fall victim of ego control. Drugs, alcohol, complaining, and blaming will only continue the experience. A strong person can say, thank God I have the ability to make new choices, and I will start with the choice to appreciate my body and my ability to learn.

Hellen Keller quote

Helen Keller is one of my inspirational mentors. One of her many quotes: “Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.”

So if you find yourself in a state of deconstruction, read the stories of those who’ve been through it. Keep your head up. You’re not alone. There is a lot of deconstruction happening these days throughout the world. Cry when you need to. Let it out, then lift yourself up. Pray regularly and look for the signs. Perform a ritual to shed unwanted energy. Burn some sage around you and your home. Love yourself. This too shall pass.

Share the love.

Mahalo.

Live and Let Die

There’s an over-riding element to ones behavior that determines the fate of our living experience.

Natural healing is a truly powerful experience but ultimately its a decision to live or die.  My love and I follow the methods of our mentors Dr. Christopher and Dr. Schulze for our own lives and share their knowledge with others in need. However, the knowledge of self healing goes deeper than the physical nature of living and places the decision to live or die on the patient.

Recently, we have been in contact with someone in need of healing from a major disease. From the onset of meeting this person, it was clear they were battling emotional turmoil which kept them from healing. Dr. Schulze says, “We would never take anyone into our clinic until they first admit they caused the illness, and are willing to deal with the emotional issue around why they caused the disease.”

Yoga teaches truth

The truth of who we are in every moment through the process of one pointed focus and meditation reveals our inner truth. In meditation, we can see clearly. When we begin to see clearly, we can take correct action for our lives. This person suffering from disease has obvious emotional issues, and is unaware of its relationship to their dis-ease. They are bouncing from one healing fad to another, not facing core methods proven to heal.

Why? Often because dealing with the truth is too difficult. Even those “trying” to heal naturally look for a quick fix. Through this experience, I have come to know what the expression “battling disease” refers to.  It is like fighting to get your way, while avoiding the rules of the game. It’s like the choice to live or die is not our choice but rather a decision based on how many external points are gained.

live or die attracts like minded.

People create avoidance energy around them to attract others who are emotionally unstable, co-dependent, even harmful to support their beliefs. My love and I, full of experience, wisdom and compassion many times have been avoided in lieu of those better suited for disabling or coddling the sick one. We see this, and still hold the perfect vision of their good health, feeding the light within them to help attract an awakening.

What we focus on, grows. As a healing team, we intuitively observe one’s presence, evaluate, and send light to those in need. When one is seeking to regain life, it is usually best to look for possible alternative to the norm or expected behaviors of those close to us.

We support whatever path you choose.

We prefer not to feed one’s weakness, instead we like to uplift. One must be ready to do the work and commit to whatever it takes, and be diligent in order to change the current reality. Live and let die. Let go of current perceptions if you seek a new reality; this in itself is a form of death which produces new life, like a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly.

Blessings on your path. Believe in mother nature. You are loved. You are love. The love that created you will always sustain you. Love thyself, heal thyself.

Conscious Tourism

Think of a time, not too long ago, when people were romantic – the sky is deep blue, the sea is clear, and the air is warm. Vivid colors of nature and breathtaking waterfalls in the mountains surround you. Your body is blessed by living outdoors and eating the abundant fruits that grow effortlessly all around. Your heart feels the natural affinity of love. Life is so vibrant you name your children after the elements in nature. The land requires strength and respect. This is Hawaii, a place so blessed and powerful that the people mold everything around this respect and gratitude. It has been the way until modern slavery and corporate greed began killing life on this great example of haumea (Mother Earth).

This is not isolated to Hawaii. Exponential population growth combined with the inertia from generations of bad habits has our earth cultures scrambling for solutions. Leaders of new thought are working to awaken more people each day to the power within them to harmonize with the natural laws of earth, Dharma.

As the growth of tourism increase on Maui, the impact has residents rallying together to conserve this blessed land (stolen in 1893), and is slowly losing all of its natural resources. But within this steady flow of tourism is a revelation of insight, a blessing, a method by which knowledge and wisdom can be shared.

Here on Maui resides a large population of Mother Earth’s leaders. Natives of Hawaii who carry the wisdom of their indigenous families. Others have been attracted to the island with wisdom to support and teach the laws of Mother Earth and enjoy the simple life gifted by nature. Moving to the island is not a given right. The people who are of the island have the fire naturally within them. Others have to discover it and answer to it from the truth within the heart. It’s a rite-of-passage, a personal, emotional fire which scorches the illusion of reality to bring forth the giant within. Maui, within it’s beauty, is a sweet nectar that will metaphysically transform the blood of all who are bold enough to partake. In yoga, we speak of this fire within as a force which burns through to reveal the true self. The fears of life have much of society afraid to discover and accept this inner self.

Throughout the world, social norms were developed out of fear and ignorance which now threatens life on earth. Today, the leaders are here to create a new reality. There is a power force on this island, the power of Mother Gaia’s heart. Those who make a stand to actualize change within themselves ignite the fire of change for people worldwide.

There is a wealth of knowledge being developed on Maui regarding the natural affinity for health and joy on this planet. Ancient knowledge brushed aside as folklore to give science priority over common sense is being reawakened and practiced. Within this ancient wisdom lies the truth of the simplicity of human survival and happiness.

Today, true leaders all over the earth are providing methods of alchemy towards happiness. Sometimes called “lightworkers,” on Maui, these leaders are immersed in wisdom of the natural elements of life. This wisdom is expressed in the teachings of organic and self-sustaining permaculture, natural healing, cultural harmony, and reclamation of Earth’s resources. These devoted leaders and teachers are not fighters in defense of a cause, as much as, masters of revelation – sharing the romantic passion of life.

Visitors of any sacred place on Earth shall realize that there is a kuleana (responsibility) to nurture our own inner wisdom – our personal coming of age. Maui asks visitors to discover something deeper than a luau at a favorite hotel. Discover the meaning of Aloha, attend a conscious class, a self-awakening/strengthening retreat, or an educational tour in support of the knowledge that people of the planet are in desperate need of. Embrace the knowledge close to the heart and allow sharing to happen naturally within circles at home. There is so much a visitor of these Hawai’ian islands can do to consciously support Hawai’ian communities and one’s hometown. A deep personal commitment is normally felt as a conscious shift, a feeling of personal harmony with what is commonly known as the ‘right thing to do.’

Maui is also where teachers and leaders from other lands come to partake in strengthening their inner power with the wisdom flowing through the vortex. Come enjoy life as you develop the leader within you. Put yourself in the fire so that nobody else can burn you. Bring home a piece of Maui. Make your visit fulfilling to the point of tears and help bring wisdom to the people worldwide.

When Natural Healing isn’t Working

Our own ideas about natural healing usually get in the way

If natural healing isn’t working than you are doing something unnatural that is effecting your progress. Healing Occurs Naturally. I saw this on a bumper sticker in Flagstaff, Arizona. Stated so clearly, we don’t even have to think about. It’s a state of being. People have driven so far off course in their thoughts that the process of allowing healing to occur naturally is undermined.  The natural abilities of our human existence are not understood.

In the universe as well as in our bodies The macro and the micro are the same.

Each part contains the whole. The way we recover from a scratch is the way we recover from cancer or other diseases. Provide the environment for healing and allow it to happen naturally. We clean the wound and cover it. We clear the issues causing the disease and let healing begin. But where the scratch took only a second to create, other diseases are caused by a more lengthy onslaught of exposure and behaviors. As a scratch can heal in a day, other diseases take a little longer for recovery, long enough to delve into the process of how it all happened. Delving into the process many times is reconstructing ones entire belief system. My mentor Dr Richard Schulze has always said they wouldn’t accept anyone into their healing clinic, of which they have helped cure all 4th stage diseases, unless the patient is willing to look within.

In a coming two part series I will outline the intense and committed process I went through to heal my liver and gut disease which was on a spiral to destroy my living existence. My system shut down and I lost 30 pounds in two months. To be published later this week.  In the mean time get a warm-up with Dr. Schulze. Aloha.

Message for 11-11-11 and beyond

Message for 11-11-11

Anyone who’s looked at the world around, knows that we are in a time of great change.   We have indulged a little too much in a path which creates disharmony among people, and within Earth herself.

We see clearly what has become and realize the ignorance which created it.  Now, as intelligent beings, we must put that wayward, ignorant mind in transformation. We have to powerfully yet lovingly bring healing to humanity.

 We shall put our minds together in unity, to focus on the creation and  development of the earth we desire.  For as we all know, it all starts in the mind. We have to see it first, for it to manifest before us.

Let us first support the gifts and goals of those who choose to bring forth the wisdom and technology of a new earth. Let’s support those who speak of love and creativity. Let’s look at what we put value to in our lives. Who and what do we support with the powerful energy of our dollar. Let’s open the door to allow through imagination and wisdom a chance to create a loving and fun place to experience life and happiness for our families.

Everything we need for joyful, healthy living is before us.  Those who speak with wisdom and of love are in the space of a much higher vibration and power than those based in fear. Feed only that which we desire and only that will grow.

 So in this time, when minds unite, focus with great power of intention on the support and love for all humanity. Focus on the earth you wish to live with healthy air water, free energy, food and warmth for every being on the planet. It is our natural and inherent right to be here and be fed. No man owns, controls or sells the earth. It is ours to nurture to love and to enjoy. Together we approach a new world.

This is where we are now

It is a wonderful time

~Douglas
