Matrix Energetics – WOW!

Have you heard of Matrix Energetics? I read the book about 6 months ago and took the 3-day seminar a week ago.  Dr. Richard Bartlett has an interesting story about how Matrix Energetics came about, which he shares in the book. He also describes some of the techniques, which I didn’t really get from the book. I’m a little too left-brained to pick it up from a book. It was enough for me to understand that it is really powerful though, so I looked into the seminar.

Are You Tired of Being Sick Yet?

You probably hear almost daily that another one of your friends or co-workers is sick. The media is still pumping up the swine flu even though some medical authorities have said that it has already peaked and has not been the event that it was predicted to be. Personally, I’m tired of hearing about it.

I don’t believe that most people need to get sick, especially not with things like a cold or the flu. None of my immediate family has been sick in over a year, and it isn’t because we live in isolation. I have small kids who go to school every day and are around other sick kids, so they have been “exposed” to whatever is out there, as have my wife and I.

Government Health Care Plan? I Prefer Wellness Care

My “local” congressman called a few nights ago with an automated phone survey to get my input on what they are working on in Washington. One problem with the survey is that it only accepted “yes” or “no” answers, so it was pretty meaningless in my opinion. The other problem is that I really don’t care too much about what they are doing because I look after my own interests.  The two major areas in the survey were about health care and taxing the wealthy. I give my viewpoint on the taxation issue on one of my other blogs. This is about my view on health care.

Binaural Beats and Brainwave Entrainment

Have you heard about binaural beats and brainwave entrainment? I’ve been hearing a lot about it recently from a variety of sources.

The most recent place I heard about brainwave entrainment was a blog post by Heather Vale Goss. She mentioned an interesting site that has some very cool programs that use entrainment to do things from improving your health and enhancing creativity to learning astral projection and lucid dreaming.

So what is brainwave entrainment?

Develop Your Intuition

Do you listen to your intuition? Do you even know what your intuition is?

Bob Proctor in 6 Minutes to Success defines intuition as the mental factor that allows you to tune into vibration. Everyone is transmitting thought energy, or vibrations, all day long. So, your intuition is your ability to pick up on what other people are thinking.

Bob suggests an exercise to demonstrate. Pick one person that you know and think about them calling you. Think about it frequently, all day long. The stronger your feeling of them calling you, the stronger the vibration that you put out. Chances are that they will call you before the end of the day, or the next time you talk to them they will probably tell you that they were thinking about calling you.

Your Interconnected Body

In the traditional medical approach, the parts of the body are all treated independently. Medical science is learning that those old ideas aren’t true. The body is actually very interconnected and nothing can take place in one part of the body that does not have some effect throughout the rest of the body.  These effects can be broadcast around by the fascia.

Electric and Magnetic Fields in the Body

The body generates electrical and magnetic fields. That idea has been taught in Eastern traditions for thousands of years. Western traditions have always held to the idea that “if I can’t see it then it doesn’t exist”. Fortunately western science is now getting sophisticated enough that we can now measure these fields.

Early Energy Medicine Pioneer

I read some things about an early 1900’s energy medicine pioneer, Harold Saxton Burr that I would like to share with you.  He was a professor at Yale School of Medicine starting in 1929, published several papers on the nervous system and 93 papers on the role of electricity in human development and disease.

At the time that Burr was doing his research on energy fields, they were very out of fashion.  Now, as scientists are getting interested in energy medicine again, his work is showing its real value.

Health versus Wellness

There has always been a battle between traditional western medicine and so-called alternative approaches to wellness. The most traditional on the one side say that alternative methods (like massage or energy work) might feel nice but they don’t do anything. The more radical on the other side say that doctors only know what the drug companies teach them.

I AM Statements vs. Affirmations

Today I want to focus on mental wellness. You’ve been told about how powerful affirmations are, but have you heard of I AM statements?

Affirmations are statements of what you want to do, be, or have and they work for some and don’t seem to for others. I think the people who get them to work are those who have figured out that they need to write their affirmations in the present tense, as if they were true right now and add in emotion and gratitude. Like Bob Proctor’s statement: “I am so happy and grateful now that…
