The New Age Movement: Friend or Foe?

“You’ve got to believe in yourself or no one will believe in you.”Ozzy Ozborne; Believer.

I hate the New Age Movement… Whoa Dan Hate is a very strong word!

Heh heh… Who or what told you that a word was strong or weak?
Exactly by what authority do you come by this intelligence?

Yes, language is powerful and yes that which comes from the heart and out of the mouth can do both amazing and terrible things.

When I frst learned of this New Age thing I was just getting into Edgar Cayce and Carl Jung and getting my act together after some rather long years of shadow play…  It seemed that NAM was some form of an answer for civilized living amongst ourselves..

Do you know what civilized means?
1. Bring (a place or people) to a stage of social, cultural, and moral development considered to be more advanced: “a civilized society”.

It means the ability to determine whats acceptable or not.
But by whom or what basis or to what end is this moral development to be created?

Your ability to determine whats acceptable is only as powerful as your ability to Judge for yourself.

Not, what the moral majority has shoved down your throat as acceptable.

For too long the packages you’ve been sold in what is acceptable or not has been a tool for conformity..
Control.
Leaving your sense of judgment completely out of the picture, or in your own hands for that matter.

Robert Cialdini has proved this over and over again in his book Influence.

In it, there is proof after proof that we follow the crowd, or even one person who has altered their perception that you have taken notice of.

It’s our laziness that has led us to this demise, unwilling to take a personal stand on what we truly think feel and believe. Between right and wrong, life and death, worth and worthlessness

I’ve personally watched this event of mindless judgment within my own family of born again Christians who swear up and down what Truth is. As if they’ve swallowed hook line and sinker what they’ve heard others preach instead of coming to their own conclusions.

God forbid you should have a contrary thought in your head. You have strayed away from the truth in their minds and hearts.. and they pray for you to see the light???   “No Offense CuzBro”

Okay.. Why Dan? Why are you off your rocker? I give, spill it already!!

I’ll quote my father who recently had this to say to me;  “Your mother and I pray for you night and day Dan, but God isn’t moving fast enough…”

(Sigh…) 1. You’re praying wrong. 2. You’re not asking what it is YOU are supposed to learn.  3.  Fast enough for who? You? Me? God?  …

There are really only 2 things left aside from my daughters that I truly have a life long passion for. One is spirituality and the other is the well being of others.

I don’t know, its just something thats been in my blood since like forever.
It’s the protector in me, the father in me, the mother in me, the warrior in me.

This I know.. Truths are Truths whether you believe them or not.

It’s my personal Truth to seek these out and install them into my everyday. The more I live these truths, the better I will deal with life on its own terms.

Life.. now there’s a term… The New Age Movement would have you believe that only joy and happiness are the Truth to life. Ummm… I’ve read the Bible front to back. I have found very little joy and happiness in that book either lived or experienced.

Everyone in it seems to be enduring some sort of moral, social or personal crises.

I think the only persons who got through the book unscathed was Enoch and Melchizedek.

First off…
Enoch was an Alien, and Melchizedek was a Ghost, so go figure that one out?

As for Jesus? I doubt anyone can live his life and not be killed by the inhabitants of this planet. God help him if he ever does return is all I have to say.

For now, the whole of Earth is connected and is now one land. That means the saying “a prophet cannot not be accepted in his own land”, now covers the entire planet. So where can such a person (or any real prophet) come from to be accepted? Where? I ask…

Okay back to the matter at hand:

10 thing the New Age Movement Sucks From Your Life

1. Your Ability To Think For Yourself.
2. The Truth About Life
3. The Truth About The Law of Attraction
4. The Truth About The Universal Laws
5. The Truth About Living In The Now
6. The Truth About Your EGO
7. The Truth About The Earth or Gaia
7a. The Truth about the Sun
7b. The Truth about the Moon
8. The Truth About Why You Are Here
9. The Truth About Fear & Doubt
10. The Truth About Lack & Abundance

And finally; as an aside, to think “happy thoughts” and you will have a happy life.

You ever tell a child not to touch something? Whats the first thing that child wants to do? Excatamundo!

We all want what we can’t have, don’t deny it sister I see you smirking from here… You tell me I can’t have something and I suddenly can’t get that something out of my head.

The thing is, if we tell ourselves we can’t have something, suddenly its gospel, and neither heaven nor hell is gonna move that thought into the contrary position, without a deliberate act of sheer determination & personal Will

Why Do Bad Things Keep Happening To Me? I Just Want To Be Happy!

I can’t stand Charlatains… trying to be careful here, as I judge so too shall I be judged.. but oh to hell with it.. Spirituality is as sacred to me as someones recovery from alcohol or addiction and their spiritual program of recovery.

If you feed people the wrong stuff, not only are you messing with their lives, you may just send them to their death.

Did you know that sugar pills are still a multi-million dollar industry? Thats right, more people get cured from placebos than actual prescriptions.. Why do you think you keep hearing those little disclaimers in prescription pill commercials…

Well, if you haven’t heard them, I just triggered your mind to hone in on those words, Placebo and Sugar-Pills, whenever you watch a prescription medicine commercial… sorry bout that.

“It is your faith which has healed you” J b4 the C. circa 2000 years ago..

Faith: The belief in things unseen

The thing about the sugar pill is the power of belief. Charlatains thrive on your ability to believe. Not only in them but in what you can do with what they have, even if its contrary to the truth.  Get it?  They lie to you and you believe in the result, therefore whether they are real or not doesn’t matter…

Be discerning about what you see, read and hear.

Some of us cannot get anything from placebos, we’ve been round long enough or just have the wiring inside to KNOW bullshit when we see it. And I’ll sneak this in healingchakras.com is run by two charlatains. There I said it…

I’ve watched the campaign, read the info, took the test got the downloads, read the emails, interacted on their facebook page and was given the chakra7 system.
This is one of those things that is littered with so much dog & pony snake oil nonsense I’ve ever watched since the advent of evengalistic healing tents.

I’m not saying this so you’ll buy the audio I created, actually I could care less if you did. Personally I think its more important that you be aware of the nonsense thats leading you to decisions you would normally not be so blind to make.

You want to improve your life, great, who doesn’t?
You want to be more yourself around people? Of course? Why wouldn’t you?
You want to have more passion and energy?
You want to be able to speak from your heart without fear of anything?
You want to begin to seek inner truth for yourself?

Then…

Take what works for you and leave the rest.

Accept the balance of your life, the Light & the Shadow are equals to your true growth.

If you are right you’ve no need to be angry, If you’re wrong, you’ve no right to be angry.

Your habits are tools, they are disciplines matured.

If you want to change your habits, the average time for most people is 21 days for the foundation, 90 days for maturation. Continue on after that and you’ve developed a discipline.

Take it One Day At A Time. You didn’t get where you are in One Day.
So remember, Easy Does It.

Commitment, Desire & Passion are keys to growth and progress, lack one of these and you’ve entered the viscous cycle of “doomed to repeat”.

Your Truth is as valuable to you as another’s truth is to theirs.

We are all the same, but different.

Those who matter will not mind the new you, and those who mind don’t matter.

Conscious SubConscious and SuperConscious

The Conscious, the Subconscious and the Superconscious.sub-super-consciousness

“How understanding the connection between these can catapult you into the realm of superachiever.”

Some time back, close to thrity years ago I had an amazing incident occur …

(yes, I have had quite a few in my life).

Like an idiot, I wanted to hang out with my friends, but I didn’t have any money to get intoxicated or even catcha buzz. And I hate being the odd man out.

So, hyper-intelligent me got to thinking, since no one was coming home for a few hours, I could water down the (gaggh) vodka with the blue label so it would appear to not have been touched, and none would be the wiser… you following this?

I don’t remember finishing the second screwdriver I made, in fact there’s a (whole lot) of that night I don’t remember. For the sake of keeping to the point of this story, I’m going to omit the epic long tale that ensued during those 7 hours and lead you right to…

The moment when I was sitting peacefully, quiet as a church mouse and off in the distance…

I could hear yelling, it was the kind of yelling that had no pause to it for breath. It was so odd, and it was getting louder by the second. I wasn’t panicking, I just thought it strange.

Suddenly it got so loud I felt like I was falling, and as I was falling the yelling became deafening. “YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH…!!”

It was so damn loud I wanted to start yelling myself, until I realized…

(I was).  I, was the one yelling.

I sounded like I had been castrated.
I opened my eyes and I was still yelling, only I was finishing a sentence…

“YAAAAAAAAAH GOTTA PEEE!!!!”

How bizzarre, I had came out of [the blackout] yelling “I had to pee”. Apparently those of sounder mind had decided to strap me to a rolling gurney and I was unable to get up and relieve myself… (How rude!)

The instance I’m referring to is that very point, where I seemed to be observing myself, apart from the lunatic strapped to the gurney. That was the physical manifestation of me. And yet I was also hearing and feeling apart from me…CONSCIOUSNESS

  • How the heck does that happen?
  • Why did that happen?
  • And most of all, can I do that again…

Obviously I was physically functioning, albeit not in a manner that suggested I was sane at the time. But functioning nontheless.

Some conscious level was animating my physical body, while another conscious level had decided that was no place to be…

Now.. I don’t want to get all Eckhart Tolle on you… going into the whole “self vs. ego thing.”

In a bit, I’ll show you a really easy way to test this for yourself.

But if you don’t already know about the different levels of consciousness, then boy-o-boy do you have a lot of catching up to do…

In the book “WHAT SELF-MADE MILLIONAIRES REALLY THINK, KNOW AND DO”
In one of their chapterrs they outline the levels of the brain… [much of which I don't really care for and think that things like this really do more damage than help...]

U SE THE THREE TIERS OF THE BRAIN
The brain seems to be divided into at least three sections: the conscious, the subconscious and the superconscious.

The conscious mind is where our daily thinking takes place in making decisions and trying to solve problems. The conscious mind can call up ideas, experiences and beliefs from the subconscious which is where all our experiences and beliefs are stored.

The subconscious operates 24 hours a day and can handle any number of problems. One way to stimulate creativity is to consider all aspects of a problem, and then ask the subconscious to find the answer by 3 p.m. the following Friday, i.e. sleep on it!

The subconscious can be used to solve problems or rise to challenges or instructions from the conscious mind. The superconscious mind has access to knowledge and experience beyond one’s own knowledge and experience. The superconscious is the source of creativity, excitement and intuition. The superconscious mind is stimulated by clarity, strong desire, solitude and strong emotions.

(Here’s where I have a complete disconnect) The SuperConscious, does NOT GET stimulated. At least in such a way that YOU may be able to percieve, unless you’ve decided to listen to the Superconscious.)

It is maintained by some people that any desire that can be transmitted to the superconscious must be brought into reality by the superconscious mind.

Focus and concentrate on your crystal-clear goals. Drive those
goals into the superconscious. Desire to achieve your goals in life.
Reflect in solitude on goals, problems, challenges, opportunities.
Drive a great deal of emotion into your desires.

(This is also way off base… Everything in the material will be placed into the thought area.
Which by definition is the layer of the mind called consciousness, what you reflect on and meditate on will be placed in the layer of mind called the subconscious. As you achieve higher levels of consciousness, you are able to move within planes of consciousness.

Just because you focus on something has absolutely no bearing on where that focus really goes, unless its of a higher nature of service to that conscious state you are attempting to interact with.)

The superconscious will reward you with blinding flashes of the obvious, the people, information, and circumstances required to achieve your goals, and unexpected chance events which will enable you to get the results you require. Remember that any goal or desire which you can drive into the superconscious must be brought into your reality.

(End of said quoted material)

So why write such if its completely untrue?

It sure sounds nice doesn’t it? Thats exactly the reason it was written.
The subconscious itself (will) reward you, if you have given it sufficient material to work with. The more vague you are, the more vague the response. The more specific you are, the more specific the response.

That being said, YOU are the catalyst to achieving anything. I’ve heard it mentioned thousands of times in my studies.. “Mind Is The Builder” and “Thoughts Are Things”.

Most likely you’ve heard it said or read somewhere, “As A Man Thinketh…” Well,  the same principal applies here.

Case in point, I’ve been studying copywriting, and one of the coolest tricks I’ve read and succesfully applied is the method of “drop everything and take a break.”

After devouring as much content about the product or service, the benefits the features, the backgrounds… everything.. before you write a single word, just stop and walk away from the whole project.

The subconscious is now allowed to work its magic. mind-super-consciousness

And it does… The following day or even week, I sit down and everything comes like a tidal wave of information that gets written in a single sitting like a man on fire… Before I know it I have the rough draft of the very essence of what I need to get across to the reader. Don’t believe me? Ask anyone in the copywriting industry, its a known and well recognized phnomenon…

And this very fabric of achievement can be done with most everything. Albeit with a measure of latitude considering the material you’re digesting and the outcomes you’re looking to achieve.

Now: how do you test this for yourself? Mind you, You’re not going to find this anywhere ever.
Trust me, I came about this on my own, but it’s really profound I promise.

I want you to sit and read these words carefully with determination.

With your imagination you are about to feel two of you. The physical you, and very slowly the mental (observer you) just slightly, ever so slightly just to the right of you… Not so much that you’re sitting next to yourself, but more like you’re almost looking over your shoulder or ear to ear with yourself…

Take your time and feel the difference between you physically and you mentally (the observer you)… Are you getting the splitting sensation? I know this is hard while trying to read. You may feel free to take a moment and try this without reading for a bit and feel the seperation occur.

……….(Pause now and try to do this without reading)……….

Have you felt it? If you are more spiritually inclined this will have quite an effect upon you.
If you are not spiritually inclined, you may have felt nothing or had trouble doing it..
It’s not your fault, your just more left brained and need more time is all…

But those who have felt the shift, if you still doubt me, try this now…

If you can…

Exactly what I had said to do before butthis time shift your mental self (observer you) to the left. Now, try and move and feel your mental (obsever) self moving left. Where the physical self is to the right of you and the mental self is now shifting to the left just ear to ear…

Thats it..  ….(Pause again and really try to do this)….

Well???

It wasn’t so easy to do now was it?

What the heck was that all about?

Did you get a rubberband effect? Like you kept snapping back to center or back to the right of your physical self?

Yes I developed that portion to totally mess with your head, I won’t lie, but also to make a very distinct and powerful point.

This was the battle of your left and right brain in conflict. Where logic vs. creativity or imaginative and intuitive parts of your processing seem to repell each other naturally.

I want to congratulate you though, in all honesty. You have taken a very critical step in achieving, not only an altered state of consciousness, you have literally witnessed the current limitation of that perception of consciousness. And in doing so, you’ve begun to actually shift yourself to a greater awareness of yourself.

I have an audio series which helps facilitate even greater level of awareness.

That Phenomenon

new car phenomenonHave you ever found the car you wanted, which you rarely if ever have seen around, and knew you just HAD to have THAT one car….

Only to find, after you’ve purchased that sweet little set of wheels, that same vehicle is ALL OVER THE PLACE???

Speaking of wheels;7 Spiritual Centers

It seems to be happening with me for a current project I’m working on. It’s not that surprising, well.. scratch that..

It was very surprising.

To be honest, when I saw the recent competitive offering I was very intrigued as to what and how it was being promoted and delivered and everything else regarding the particular information…

This is a spiritual product.. now, since I’ve been in the spiritual practice for well over 20 years, I feel I have ascended some measure of levity in the arena.

Meaning I take it somewhat seriously, not in the stoic sense, but I’ve considered most teachings to be very honorable, and if taught wrong you’re basically messing with peoples lives.. And THAT I don’t agree with.

Now, I’m going to tangent for a minute, so bear with me here..

One of the reasons I’ve had a hard time promoting myself over the last 3 years in any sense of the term is because of one of the traditions in the spiritual practices I attend.. One which states,

“This is a program of attraction rather than promotion”

Good heavens!!!

Mind you, this isn’t the only reason, but it is the one I continuously felt in my head every time I went in the direction to get my name out there in the internet world… Locally just being myself was, just that, being myself.

While the world of internet marketing seemed to vibrate invariably towards making money and all that entailed, I felt a very sincere disconnect.  I’m not about making money, I’m about helping, of being of service, of getting you through those areas I’ve experienced and overcame.

I live modestly, I enjoy the peace and surroundings of being in nature with family and friends. I love to be loved, I don’t think anyone really doesn’t.. but promoting with what feels like artificial insemination, that if, you love me I’ll make you rich, was not something that resonated with me.

Have I made money online?

Oh yeah, at my best I was able (and is readily confirmed by Marc Goldman of Goldbar.net) to create the tune of ten thousand dollars net per month, just in affiliate email promotions alone.

But, if you’re looking for (make money crap) from this site.. sorry.

On the other hand if you’re sincere and honest about getting through the confusing tumultuous parts of life, this site WILL help you see things differently. I just need to do a better job promoting, ha ha.

So back to that New Car Phenomenon…7 spiritual centers

An old project came to light that was shelved after a client decided to vacate the land of the spiritual… And as of late, it was suddenly something of great interest to those looking to know more about their spiritual centers.

Off I go to start the process of taking what I had, and building a solid promotion around it.

Then from out of the blue (which is what always happens, a bit on that in a moment) a dear friend sent me to an optin with an awesome Robert Caldidni  slash Glenn Livingston approach to engage you to know more about your spiritual centers..  The Chakras as they are termed.

The phenoenon explained;

Everything is here, always was here, the more involved you are with anything, the more you will intuitively become aware of that which you are involved in. It’s not the universe talking to you or things suddenly appearing out of the ether whenever you engage in something deeply…

You are just more in tuned to what you have put a lot of energy into.
So it’s extremely natural for you to become that much more aware of the same car as yours, the same house colors as yours, the same dress you’re wearing on an unflattering body, or even a body that may (in your eyes) out shine you… It’s just a natural acuity to something you attached your emotions to.

That being said let me digress…

Skeptical and intrigued at the same time, I went through their process to find line after line of misinformation and sheer nonsense about “the what’s and the how’s” about what can and can’t be done concerning your spiritual centers.. and they seemed to be more geared towards sucking you into the tribe than actually bringing you to new levels of understanding.

They obviously did a great job, for over 200,000 people have taken their test and signed up for their report.  So, of course I want to know how the hell they do that…?

Well, I went the full boat and purchased the program after getting the results from the test..  I needed to know exactly what I’m up against, since the selected reviews were of course, positive.

My greatest source of disdain;

If you’ve been in the self -help buying side a while you may have seen the charlatan procedure which the promoter used an old method of false activity to create social proof (in this case) the spiritual openings .. weak vs. strong,  by doing the “hold your hand up and say your name, now say a different name.. say I am [your name] while holding your hand up,”  I’ll now push down on your hand… and now say someone elses name, and I’ll push down on your hand, you see how you were stronger with Your name than with another name?

OMFG I wanted to .. well lets say  I got a bit emotional.

Why?

This dog & pony show, for the uninitiated is amazing in its results.
It’s proof positive that what you do, think and feel, effects you physically, mentally and spititually…

Or…

It just proves that if I apply pressure to a certain area along your arm I can exact the results I want with the help of gravity. See?

I don’t mess with people’s reality,  spirituality, recovery, or with their lives. To me, this is the greatest of misgivings one can do to another.

On a side note;

Your imagination is the next thing to your faith. Without imagination you most likely have little or no faith.

On another note;

The placebo is an amazing tool.  So if you are experiencing results from disinformation in the positive… Who am I to judge? Your faith alone [and nothing else] has healed you.

 The Gift of Tones, something I’m working on, has been getting awesome reviews so far.The Gift of Tones
It’s being polished up and just about ready for promotion.
I’m actually having a lot of fun doing it, which tells me “I’m either on the right path or I’m insane. ”

  • Do you meditate?
  • Are you sensitive?
  • Do you indulge in woowoo?
    lol, no other way to describe that one..

Reason I ask is, I created some recordings a while back, when a friend of mine was helping a blind person… We wanted to send them the recordings so they would be able to open their spiritual centers (Chakras) The recordings actually contain the sounds made of the centers opening, and I added some binaurals along with colored tones to facilitate that which could not be seen…

I gave them to a friend, whom I helped facilitate the activation of her Merkeba… If you haven’t done this, I could show you, no problem…

My question is, if you know you’re sensitive.. (not a major factor, but I found that those who have shifted a bit helps) would you want to review the recordings? They’re numbered and in mp3 format so to improve use on available devices… if so.. just let me know.

They’re 3-5Mb eachGift of Tones
They’re 35minutes long in total
They’re numbered
And they are kinda powerful…

Don’t listen to them at normal volume lvl’s, lower your volume to 2 or 3… and use headphones…

There are no vocals voices or subliminals involved.. someone was concerned about that, so I thought I’d place that disclaimer in there…

I’ve recently released them publically and currently seeking reviews…
