Keeping the Eyes Open 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 program our energy field to attract what we choose to create but if 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?

Much love

Falling Down

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.

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.

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

My natural healing mentors are Dr. Christopher and Dr. Schulze. These men have a long history of healing every disease in their clinics. My love and I follow their methods for our own lives and share their knowledge with others in need.

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. 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.

What is interesting is that this person has created an avoidance energy around them to attract others who are emotionally unstable, co-dependent, even harmful. My love and I, full of experience, wisdom and compassion have been avoided. We see this, and still hold the perfect vision of their good health, feeding the light within them to help attract an awakening. For what we focus on, grows. As a healing team, we intuitively observe one’s presence, evaluate, and send light to those in need.

We support whatever path another chooses. 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.

Matriarchal Control, Women and Feminism

There was a time, I am told, when we thrived in harmony as a Matriarchal society.  Men were simply around for labor and reproduction… and a little fun, I’m sure.

But this has been long forgotten with generations of destruction to the feminine power, burning of witches and books etc. The takeover of the Patriarchal with its overblown ego attachment to fear through the ages, has nearly destroyed our existence.

In the 70’s, there was the visual outpouring of what had been years of repression from women worldwide. Women were taking charge and kicking ass, opening doors, and re-patterning societal views.It became known as the feminist movement or “feminism.”

ism

ˈizəm/

noun  informal derogatory

noun: ism; plural noun: isms

  1. a distinctive practice, system, or philosophy, typically a political ideology or an artistic movement.

This movement was powerful from it’s physical standpoint. In this movement women had to speak the language of men and act like men in order to be heard, and at the same time fostering a bit of hatred towards men. This in turn put “femininity” in the background for decades. Women were becoming more like men with aggressive behavior which is confusing for the feminine energy. Women were adopting the masculine role in society. The movement brought more equality for women but was a little twisted in some ways. Some say it was a ploy for men to stay in power by de-feminizing women further.

I don’t know any men who prefer a woman to be like a man.  Heterosexual men naturally know their innate tendencies to lose control when a woman squares with her femininity.  So the idea of feminism, though it allowed women to be heard, disintegrated femininity. It seemed necessary to crack some heads and make a clear statement of power, but disintegrated feminine power.

In this New Age of thought about humanity’s existence being in an evolutionary phase, we have gathered by the millions in groups all across the planet to call forth the feminine power to heal. Not the feminist power, but the feminine power.

We are learning to release destructive habits and in turn learn new ways to live and new behaviors to adopt. We are beginning to harmonize heart and mind/body. We seek love for the heart of humankind with the body of Mother Earth. Mother Earth is our life giver. She sustains us and protects us. If we live in harmony with all life on earth, then we can live in abundance, joy and bliss.

The shift is to let go of the fearful and destructive behaviors of the masculine energy. The masculine doesn’t understand how to trust in life. So its fear creates behaviors to protect itself. Fear feels threatened, feels the need to get ahead of the others, to stock-up, and so on. This behavior then leads to more fear that others will take from them, hence the idea of protection, guns, borders, insurance plans, and so on. The never- ending cycle of fear has humanity in a tailspin. Humans have been trying to fix the problem with the same mind that created the problems. This is a behavior in self destruction.

The movie, Avatar, provides a glimpse into the broader horizon for humanity to exist beyond the fear-based power of the Patriarchal society. Today, there are leaders among us whom are living examples of this lifestyle. If men let go of the reigns and release themselves into roles which support women, we can really shift.  Think about it logically (from a man’s brain). Women get to run the show, grandma and grandpa run the kids, and man runs the tools, goes out to work and comes home to procreate and have some fun with his toys.  Isn’t that what men have been wanting anyway?

I believe that it was the  extraction of men from the supportive roles into leadership roles which caused such problems. Men are not equipped for this an in turn use force like a child, afraid and confused.

The biggest challenge is to remove men from power who are not balanced in their understanding and harmony of the feminine. Men are powerful in their creations, but when the physical creation process becomes the only thing that matters, we lose our balance in humanitarian affairs.  Humanity has suffered the fate of this behavior.

We need the strong feminine…but have enough women healed themselves to step into these roles? This is the weak link. There have been few women who embrace the truth of the feminine without clinging to the old man/woman roles or continuing to be whimpering  victims. Real women do exist and more and more are stepping up as candidates for leadership. The strong ones know who they are and with of sense of emerging as an introvert, these women are revealing themselves. It is our responsibility as a society to recognize these strengths and nurture them. The good thing for humanity is that the new generations are becoming more androgynous and this in itself will support our greatest evolution in history, if we survive long enough for our children to grow.

Men……get back to the playground and let the teachers, Curanderas, Kahunas and Shaman lay the guidelines for our future existence.  We must look at this like a person who became addicted to a bad drug. Once the addict comes to the realization of imminent death if it continues, the addiction must stop, immediately, cold turkey. We are at that critical point. We must all stop the way we are living, now. Everyone must adopt a new concept. Though this is nearly impossible given the current brain power of most humans, leaders and super humans must set the guidelines so the masses can follow. (The masses are just a large bulk of energy which can be guided.) If the masses wish to die so be it. If humanity wishes to continue, we must adopt new thoughts about life, the thoughts of wisdom which we’ve forgotten.  Children, take control. Parents, nurture new thought in your children.  Let’s develop new behaviors for humanity. Hell, I am happy to let the feminine lead the way. Maybe now we can all feel safe in the arms of the great mother.

For a personal moment toward devotion to change follow this beautiful healing ceremony.

Hope to see you another day.

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

Here is a simple understanding. 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 of learning to just “be” collecting beliefs and habits that have undermined the natural abilities of our human existence.

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. We 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
