So yesterday I went on a little rant about what I believe to be the mis-information.

Today I’m going to point you in the direction of some sites and books of interest that in my opinion will offer a different perspective. Lets start out with the heavy ish. Do you know about the International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine? Subtle energies as taken from their website is “the traditional subtle energies referred to as chi (or ki), prana, etheric energy, fohat, orgone, odic force, mana, homeopathic resonance, etc., are said to move in the so-called etheric body (subtle body), and seem to be difficult to measure at present. A number of therapeutic methods prevalent today, however, appear to be concerned with facilitating the flow of these subtle energies through the dense physical body.” This is not a strange concept. Accupuncture, reiki, yoga, just to name a few focus on these same energies to promote well being of both the physical and spiritual bodies. Stop and think about that for a second. Let it really sink in. Energy Medicine, as also defined from their website, “…includes all energetic and informational interactions resulting from self-regulation or brought about through other energy couplings to mind and body. In addition to various therapeutic energies which we may use, there are also energy pulses from the environment which influence humans and animals in a variety of ways. For instance, low level changes in magnetic, electric, electromagnetic, acoustic, and gravitational fields often have profound effects on both biology and psychology. In addition to energies originating in the environment, it has been documented that humans are capable of generating and controlling subtle not-yet-measurable energies that seem to influence both physiologic and physical mechanisms.” Mumbo Jumbo? No, not quite. This is how your body functions. Prescription drugs “fix” one system, only to throw off others i.e. side effects. To me, this indicates that the “fix” isn’t a very good one. We need to remember a better way of doing things. To supplement the current conversation about energy medicine, check out, The Anatomy of Spirit. Suitable for the laymen, Dr. Myss has put together a really awesome book, complete with real case stories of how she assisted general practitioners in curing their clients. More evidence to support how awesome you really are, how much power rests within you to take complete control not only of your reality but your body as well. Your the boss, boss. For the more technical, I highly recommend both The Biology of Belief, and Power vs Force. The Biology of Belief, written by Dr. Bruce Lipton I got about half way through, then had to stop because I was googling all the big words more than I was understanding. I got the jist of what he was saying. I don’t need to delve into the specifics of it. To give you an idea, a summary of his book, taken from the link above says, “It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts.” We rock ya’ll. Fo reals.

Power vs. Force is also highly recommended. A nice blend of the technical and story telling, Dr. Hawkins does, in my opinion, a great job of explaining what kinesology is. Yes, another science referring to the power the mind has over the body. Click on the link above and scroll to the bottom of the page and take a peek at the awesomely selected excerpt. To quote Dr. Hawkins, “…the future is now.” We’re not done. Have you watched, What the bleep do we know? Why the hell not? Get on that! For all you out there that don’t like to read, and are skimming this blog right now look here. Awesome, now focus. Click on the link, get the documentary. No really, get it. It could not more beautifully explain scientific terminology that is directly related to you. If by watching it, your world can only get better what the problem is? Magazine reader? Throw Time in the garbage and grab SuperConscious, EnlightenNEXT, Spirituality and Health, Science of Mind, Light of Consciousness (you can get back issues for like 4 bucks if you just wanna try this one out. I ordered like 9 hehe), or Conscious Living. Completely free is Alternatives Magazine. Wanna discuss shit with more nutjobs like me? Check out The World Cafe. I just stumbled upon this yesterday, so its on my to do list to delve deeper into it. Spirituality and Health has an awesome site full of articles and blogs, stuff you can read at your leisure, and comment on when the mood strikes you. If you want some in person connections, check out The Quantum Leap. Good ole Nawlins has a chapter, connected through meetup.com and I’ll be attending our first meeting on Wednesday. I’ll let you know how it goes. If you’re into the social networking craze, and you really want to see how many of us there are check out Zaadz. And finally, if you’re really really froggy and want to hit up a retreat to get your inner workings in order, I recommend you check out the Truth Consicouness Ashram and Spiritual Centers. Call em up. Thousands of dollars? That was funny. Cost to go to center = zero. That’s whats up. Well, I think that’s enough to get you started. If you know of some awesomely get you in the know sites that I haven’t listed feel free to share them! Oh! Add one more book to your reading list, The Translucent Revolution. I’m going to hit up borders before I go to my fake job and pick up my copy. Now, last thing. You know that song, The Sexual Revolution? Yeah you know it. Change sexual, to Spiritual and jam the hell out the rest of the day. In fact I hope it gets stuck in your head like it is in my mine Viva La Revolution!! Namaste & Espavo.
