Taken from modified excerpts of my book:

The Subconscious, the Divine and Me



In 2008-09, I had two mind blowing spiritual awakening weeks through Oneness University , that changed my life  forever.

So far our champion of the last two blogs has been pummeled by two massive Divine downloads through the image of Tony Robbins during a retreat put on by Oneness University in Fiji.  He had no idea what was going on.  Let’s see how the Divine pulls the rug out from under him this time.

The afternoons of the retreat were scheduled with classes.  One of the teachers was a thirty-something gentleman from India by the name of Ananda Giri.  He was kind of  a modern-day guru.  Because he was busy and lived far away, his lessons were given via video.  He spoke in a rather hypnotic cadence and his eyes glazed over when he paused.  He seemed as if he was plugged into an energy most of us could only dream about.  Carrying the qualities of peace and innocence, he was loved by everyone.  It was impossible not to.

On the last full day of the retreat, I wandered down to the beach for a stroll and some alone time.  As I stepped from the path onto the beach, I distinctly heard someone call my name.  I turned around and didn’t see anyone.  So I kept walking.  After a few more steps, I heard my name again, this time loud and clear.  Nobody was there!  Remembering I was on a retreat, I figured, “Okay, it’s in my imagination.”  As I closed my eyes, I could see him there plain as day.  It was Ananda Giri.  By this time, I was starting to feel like I was losing my grip on reality.

Walking down the beach, we carried on a conversation that lasted about thirty minutes.  He was very explicit and told me what I could expect over the next six months.  It felt like being with an old and dear friend.  As we came to the end of the beach, he stood aside with an impish grin, as if he knew something.  In a few seconds, guess who came walking down the beach?  You guessed it, Tony Robbins.  Keep in mind, this encounter on the beach was happening in my imagination.  However, the events were so lucid it was hard to distinguish between the imaginary and the physical world.

Seeing Tony walk toward me, in a no non-sense militaristic fashion, set off a tingle of fear down my spine.  He was here on business and his business was with me.  Off to the side, the guru was watching, trying not to laugh.  Tony approached face-on and stopped about an arm’s length away and roared, “You just don’t get it, do you?”  As he said that, he smacked me on the chest with his open palm.  I could feel the blow physically and was knocked back a step.  This was getting bizarre.

Replying to his question, I imagined myself answering, “Uh…get what?”  He responded, “Don’t resist.”  I said, “Resist what?”  With that answer, he wound up to hit me again.  Instead of feeling his open palm slam into my chest, it passed right through into my torso.  It felt extremely peculiar and downright mind-boggling.  I could feel him reaching inside my body.  He seemed to enjoy it.  He kept pressing his hand form the surface to the inside of my body like he was testing something.  With a growing smile, he said, “That’s it, you’re getting it.”  On the next attempt to press into my chest, his entire arm entered my heart.   At the same time, he did a kind of pirouette and completely entered my upper body, dissolving into my core.  I looked over toward Ananda Giri for some kind of explanation.  He was gone.  I was stupefied.

Download number three…

At this point I figured I was completely losing my mind.  To find out if I do, check in on my next blog.

How to Discover the ‘Magic’ of Energy Healing

Spirituality, Meditation, Mindfulness and Energy Healing

I’ve been working in the world of energy healing for decades.  Over the years, I get inquires like the one I received recently.

Energy Healing

It went something like this:

“I have been getting energy healings from lots of people in the past but what struck me was that there was one thing that was unique on your site as compared to others, i.e. ‘permanent results’.  I hope it is true, and if so, please confirm so that I can start sessions with you.  I’m much in need of a miracle.”


I responded:

“Thanks for you inquiry.  I have 25 years experience as an energy healer and spent six of those years working in a cancer radiation clinic.  Clients I have worked with who have experienced ‘permanent results’ are people who are deeply committed to their own healing process and education in self-awareness.  In short, they are open to doing what ever it takes to improve the quality of their lives.  This is a critical and necessary component to healing.

“Why?  Because I do not do the healing.  I only facilitate a process to help people access the deeper parts of themselves to do their own healing.  Although miracles can and do happen, there are generally no quick fixes or magical cures.  Healing tends to be gradational, through the effort of reaching deep inside yourself.  I can assist you in that process.

“So if you want to work with me, think it over.  I am focused on results but only if you’re willing to put in the work.  Thanks so much for contacting me.”


Like so many of us, my friend above sees energy healing as something shrouded in a magical cloak of mystery.  I think that happens because we don’t fully understand it yet.  But we’re getting there.  As forge ahead and come to a deeper understanding of our energetic natures, we’ll begin to understand the ‘miraculous’ in a different light.  We’ll see miracles as a natural part of being human (homework and all).

Autopilot Behaviors and Stress

Why do I do the same stupid things over and over again?

Many common autopilot behaviors that produce stress in our bodies and minds are the result of of unexperienced emotion (pain, fear, stress, etc.) that gets suppressed into the subconscious mind.  This happens without awareness or intention on our part.  Most all of this emotion is based somewhere in our past, commonly in childhood.

When emotion is suppressed into the subconscious, the subconscious mind will try to help us release the emotion by creating situations for us to experience it.  Because when we experience any emotion fully, it will essential dissipate into the ether.  If the stressful emotion is avoided (something we all do naturally) it will be suppressed back into the subconscious mind. Then we’ll start to see repeating, stressful, autopilot behaviors over and over again.

Some universal emotions that cause these stressful patterns include: abandonment,  fear, unworthiness, grief, and resistance.

Once we become aware of subconsciously suppressed emotion and the painful repeating patterns they cause, we can take active steps to heal the subconscious. There are numerous techniques to accomplish this, but each healing technique is essentially a tool to accesses the subconscious mind.  Some of these modalities include Guided Meditation, Hypnotherapy, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), and Energy Healing.

How Can I Fit Meditation Into Everyday Life?

Letter headSpirituality, Meditation and Energy Healing

The meditative state is actually a natural state of mind most everyone enters twice a day.  That’s right before falling a sleep and just before waking up.  It’s also called the suspended dream state.

When we sit and meditate, we deliberately create the suspended dream state and extend it for a given period of time.  To master the art takes a bit of practice.  A few minutes of quiet meditation each day can familiarize you with this heighten state of awareness.

Once you learn how to enter your inner world, it can be accessed very quickly.  For some, it only takes a matter of seconds.  Then meditation can happen just about anywhere—at work, at home, or at play.  If it’s practiced enough, the entire fabric of your being will be influenced by the incredible ambience of peace.

Why are Some People Intimidated by Meditation?

Some people are intimidated by meditation (especially in the West), due to our conditioning.  From the time we are very young, parents, teachers, religion, society, and the media, train us to look for life’s solutions in the three dimensional physical world.  That’s all on the outside.

Meditation teaches us to look within.  Initially, we may find unpleasant thoughts, memories and emotions lurking on the inside.  It can be daunting to visit such unfamiliar terrain.  However, meditation will not only be the light to shine on those discomforts but will also be the tool to heal them.

Why is Meditation So Important?

Letter headSpirituality, Meditation, Mindfulness and Energy Healing


Question:  Meditation is becoming quite popular in the West these days, almost  to the point of  being main stream.  What’s the big deal?  What’s to gain by going into the zone?

Answer:  First  off, meditation takes you into a deep state of of relaxation.  It’s the original stress reduction remedy.

Second, it opens the doors to another world—namely, the subconscious mind.  When the doors to the subconscious are open, it can facilitate enormous opportunity to heal and release suppressed emotion from the past.  Most of us are governed by those emotions without even realizing it.  When suppressed emotions are gone, so are the repeating patterns of pain and suffering that accompany them.

Third, meditation opens the conduit to the higher part of yourself—the Divine, God, the Universe, the Life Force, Chi or whatever else you want to call it.  When that connection is established and recognized, your life will never be the same again.  Your pathways to creativity, enhanced relationships, and effortless Flow will be forever unlocked.  Then the adventure, to an eternity of personal growth, is forever at your doorstep.

How to Heal Family Relations During the Holidays

Family Relationships and the Holidays…Ugh!

What is wrong with my family?  Why do they drive me absolutely nuts every holiday season?!?  Or maybe, on the other hand, what’s wrong with me???

Answer:  There is nothing wrong with any of you.  You are all perfect expressions of who you are at this point in time.

P.S.  However, there is always room for growth.

Nothing better illustrates how the subconscious mind works than family difficulties during the holidays.  It’s really a time for the subconscious mind to shine.

Almost everything that happens in your day-to-day existence is an outward expression of what is stored in your subconscious.  Whatever lives within you will be reflected back to you in the events of your life; the good, the bad and everything in between.  If you have feelings of conflict, anger, unworthiness or sadness living inside you, it will show up in the interaction of your relationships.  This happens most readlily in our families.  It’s especially obvious when it’s a repeating pattern during the holidays.

The best way to heal suppressed emotion is to first recognize that relationship difficulties begin inside of you.  If you blame your spouse, parents, children, the government, the economy, or whatever for your problems, you are looking in the wrong place.  Your suffering is never about someone or something else outside of you.  It’s always about what’s going on inside of you.

The next thing to do is release the emotion trapped inside of you, using deep states of meditation.  This will begin to the process of ending charged emotional situations.

Happy Holidays!
