Navigating A Crisis: Transform Negativity Into A Positive Experience

This is an excerpt from the video “Navigating A Crisis” I released on Youtube on April 7, 2020. I want to be a voice of hope and inspiration to help you turn negativity into positivity. I want to be a voice of courage and vision and assure you that no matter what you’re going through right now, you’re not alone, we’re all coping with uncertainty. But here’s the good news: no matter what you’re going through, you have the potential of coming out of it a better person. Not only the potential, but even a probability that you will come out a better version of you. Adversity often does this to us. […]

The Placebo Effect

The placebo effect is one of the most fascinating aspects of health care. Traditional medicine, while very aware of the effect, does not know quite what to do about it. People on both sides of the issue argue passionately about its use. The advocates see it as a cure all. Its opponents call it a sham and an illusion. What both agree on, however, is that in many cases placebos work, and now new research is indicating that its success is far wider and more encompassing than ever suspected. […]

The Immune System

Anyone who looks seriously into the amazing healing processes of the body discovers a remarkable process – the immune system. Although we have learned more about the immune system in the past twenty years than in the entire history of medical science, we are still in our infancy of understanding the complexity of this system.

Happiness & Joy

I believe absolutely that it is our duty and responsibility to cultivate the virtue of happiness and joy, and practice that virtue daily in our lives. Not only do we become empowered with this practice, but it also empowers everyone we come into contact with. And beyond this, the practice of happiness helps to change the vibration of our global consciousness. If it is even remotely possible for you, you should find something to be happy and joyful about today, even at this very moment. […]

Inner Harmony and Social Responsibility

The following is an excerpt from The Practice of Happiness, a book by John Kehoe. Inner harmony comes from recognizing that certain attitudes and feelings make us feel harmonious and others do not. It comes from noticing how we feel when we think in a certain way, from being aware of our own inner states and what has caused these inner states. Doing this is not hard, but it does take attention. First of all, let’s look at what causes disharmony within us. Anger, guilt, fear, worry, self-doubt, disrespect for yourself and others-these undesirable attitudes cause us untold problems and difficulties. We should always be on guard against slipping into these states of consciousness. For not only do these cause us harm, but in a very real way they affect the consciousness of the entire planet. […]

Imagery Can Help You Recover from Injuries and Illness

That professional athletes use guided visualization and other Mind Power techniques to increase their level of performance is nothing new. In a previous Topic of the Month (see index) I wrote about basketball legend Michael Jordan’s method. He claims he spent as much time off court practicing making shots in his mind as he did on court. “I practice in my mind being in a pressured situation and making the game winning shot,” he said after winning game one of the NBA finals several years with ago, with a brilliant shot with less than ten seconds left in the game. But that athletes also use the same method to heal themselves from injuries and illness is not so well known. […]
