Best Shield Against Corona: Your Immune System. Mastery Newsletter March 24, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

My hands are raw from so much hand washing.

 

Of course it’s good to wash hands and keep the bugs from entering.

 

Perhaps we can consider supporting the immune system as well.

 

A top notch immune system can fight any bugs that make it through the outer defenses.

 

So…how to do that?

 

Let’s take note that Louis Pasteur, on his death bed, recanted.

 

He and another researcher, Antoine Bechamp, had a bitter feud.

 

Pasteur claimed that germs invading the body were the cause of disease.

 

Meanwhile, Bechamp said no. It was the medium into which the germs landed.

 

Wikipedia puts it this way:

 

“Denying that bacteria could invade a healthy animal and cause disease, Béchamp claimed instead that unfavorable host and environmental conditions destabilize the host’s native microzymas, whereupon they decompose host tissue by producing pathogenic bacteria.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antoine_B%C3%A9champ

 

In other words, if the animal (a human being for example) were healthy, any bugs (bacteria, viruses) entering it would be neutralized by a healthy immune system.

 

Notably Pasteur, on his death bed, said he was wrong and Bechamp was right.

 

Yet, the world still operates on Pasteur’s theory!

 

Excellent article below on this and how to provide support for the immune system comes from Ken Peters, a researcher and author in Victoria, BC, Canada.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

 

“Enhancing Immunity and Fighting Viruses

 

“Bernard was correct. I was wrong. The microbe (germ) is nothing. The terrain (milieu) is everything.” (Louis Pasteur on his deathbed)

 

What Pasteur finally wrapped his head around was that fighting infectious agents (i.e. killing germs, etc.) is not as effective as having an immune system which allows them no purchase. This holds true for both microbes and viruses.

 

In our current climate of fear, the media plays up every new virus as the plague that may decimate us all, and has us all waiting with bated breath for the medical system to develop a vaccine that will be our salvation.

 

However, our best approach when any such situation arises (e.g. SARS, H1N1 or swine flu), is to ensure that our immune system is operating at full capacity.

 

Two supplements that ensure a healthy functioning immune system are medicinal mushrooms, and the herb astragalus. NutriStart has combined the two in our ImmuneStart product, which I will review in this and the following newsletter. I will begin here with astragalus, and examine the medicinal mushrooms next week.

 

Astragalus

 

Astragalus (membranaceus) is a plant native to Northern China. Used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, the root of astragalus (aged from 4 to 7) is considered one of the most valuable tonic herbs, considered most effective when used on a long term basis.

 

During the big H1N1 scare of 2009, alternative doctor Andrew Weil suggested that one of the best natural defenses against this virus would be to use the Chinese herb astragalus. Shortly thereafter he was attacked by the American FDA, who took the position that astragalus had no antiviral properties, and in fact had no value at all for the human immune system.

 

The position of the FDA was based on the fact that the North American medical system does not acknowledge studies done outside of North America. Since there were no Western studies done on the herb, from their perspective, there were literally no studies to support Dr. Weil’s claims. Though there is not a large amount of clinical studies done on this traditional herb as you will note in the links below, there are definitely enough studies to support the position that Dr. Weil took. In fact, many studies (done in other countries) have shown astragalus to have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties.

 

Astragalus In Chinese Medicine For thousands of years Chinese Medicine has used Astragalus for strengthening the immune system. This approach is more about strengthening the natural resistance of the body rather than actually directly killing the attacking bacteria, or viruses. In Chinese medicine, astragalus is used as an energy tonic, and to treat fatigue, wasting conditions, weakness, and loss of appetite. In cases of excessive sweating (especially night sweats) or fluid retention, astragalus is used to control fluids (performing a diuretic function), and is also supportive of the kidneys.

 

Now let’s have a look at some clinical studies which support the use of astragalus for treating respiratory ailments, and protecting us from viral invaders. As mentioned above, there is little in the way of scientific studies on astragalus done in the West, so these studies all issue out of China. (The reason little scientific research is done on herbal compounds in the West is because natural compounds cannot be patented; thus profit-driven companies have no financial incentive to invest in studies which cannot result in a patent-protected product.)

 

Studies on Astragalus

 

Respiratory Tract Infection: In Chinese medicine, astragalus is often prescribed for bronchitis, and other respiratory infections. In one study, the objective was, “To explore and compare the clinical effects of three immuno-potentiators and their influence on immune function in preventing and treating recurrent respiratory tract infection (RRI).”

 

Two of the compounds tested were drugs, and the third was “milkvetch”, another name for astragalus. Their conclusion was, “They all can enhance the immunological function of the organism, strengthen the disease-resistant ability of patients, and reduce the incidence of RRI. Among them, the milkvetch extract oral liquid is worthy of spreading due to its lower cost, simple administration, exemption from painful injection, and good compliance.” (Study)

 

COPD “Milkvetch root as a medicine has been used for over 2000 years in China, can strengthen immune function, protect liver, promote urination, resist aging and stress, reduce blood pressure and extensively resist bacterium. This study explored the effects of milkvetch root on the immune function of patients with a definitive diagnosis of acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).”

 

Conclusion: “These results indicate that milkvetch root can improve the immune function of patients with acute exacerbation of COPD.” (Study)

 

Infectious Bronchitis This is a bird study, but the interesting thing in this case is the source of the infectious bronchitis (IB): “The avian coronavirus causes infectious bronchitis (IB), which is one of the most serious diseases affecting the avian industry worldwide. However, there are no effective strategies for controlling the IB virus (IBV) at present.”

 

“In conclusion, these results suggest that astragalus polysaccharides exhibit antiviral activities against IBV and it may represent a potential therapeutic agent for inhibiting the replication of IBV.” (Study)

 

Influenza “Influenza is an acute respiratory infection disease caused by the influenza virus. At present, due to the high mutation rate of influenza virus, it is difficult for the existing antiviral drugs to play an effective antiviral effect continually, so it is urgent to develop a new anti-influenza drug.”

 

“Recently, more and more studies have been conducted on the antiviral activity of Astragalus membranaceus, but the specific antiviral mechanism of this traditional Chinese medicine is not clear. In this study, the results proved that the Astragalus membranaceus injection showed obvious anti-influenza virus activity.” (Study)

 

Swine Flu Although this study was done on isolated cells, many scientific studies are performed in a similar manner (“in vitro”). For our purposes, this study is interesting because it looks at the swine fever virus, something akin to the viruses humans have to deal with (such as H1N1).

 

“The immunomodulatory effects of astragalus polysaccharide (APS) on porcine endothelial cells (ECs) expose to classical swine fever virus (CSFV)…The addition of APS to the culture can obviously regulate the expression of molecules related to the adhesion, growth, and immune response of ECs, as well as the production of cytokines. Therefore, it may have the potential to be an effective component in vaccines against CSFV.” (Study)

 

NK Cells Part of what makes Astragalus so helpful for the immune system is its ability to increase levels of natural killer cells in the body. These cells circulate through the blood and lymph fluid attacking foreign invaders including cancer, and virus cells. Astragalus is also used to treat immune-suppressive diseases, including AIDS. (Study)

 

Conclusion

 

Astragalus is a very safe herb, used by everyone from children to seniors, and can be taken over a long period of time, in order to maintain optimal immune function. Immunestart offers the benefits of a concentrated astragalus extract, along with a concentrated mix of the six most potent medicinal mushrooms (organically grown in the U.S.). Next week we will have a closer look at those mushrooms.

We Are Dreaming the World Into Existence. Mastery Newsletter February 11, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

We are dreaming the world into existence.

 

You and I.

 

In every moment.

 

Become more of a conscious dreamer.

 

That way, we can heal the world. And ourselves.

 

The world mirrors back to us our love and intention.

 

If I intend to heal all humanity and all creatures, the all creatures and all of nature support me.

 

However, the healing needs to include me.

 

That has to be in the equation at the beginning.

 

As Lucille Ball, the famous and great comedienne, said:

 

“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”

 

Ok, so that’s all fine and dandy but how do I start to love myself with all my faults, foibles and fallacies?

 

Here is a simple daily ritual that has worked wonders for me and continues to raise my energy level every day.

 

Patch Adams said this at a talk he did in Holland.

 

For the next week, every time you pass a mirror, look at yourself and say:

 

“Oh yeah! Me! Look at me! I am incredible. I am awesome. I am wonderful.”

 

While saying that, move you body, point your thumbs at your chest. Smile.

 

Really feel your positive energy.

 

This may seem silly at first and trust me, it is!

 

The willingness to feel silly seems to be a good part of learning to more deeply love ourselves.

 

When I do this in a public elevator, it can feel embarrassing…even if there is no one else in the elevator. (There might be hidden cameras in this day and age. Hah!)

 

That’s ok. Be willing to feel some embarrassment. At first.

 

That should dissipate. What remains is a deeper appreciation of how wonderful you really are.

 

You are a miracle. You deserve your own love.

 

Only when we love ourselves deeply can we really love others.

 

Can we really love and intend healing for all humanity and all creatures.

 

Then we have set up a virtuous cycle. We love ourselves. We intend love for all creatures. All creatures love and support us.

 

The world becomes a safer place.

 

And we dream a better world into existence.

 

And guess what else?

Life becomes more fun.

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

 

 

Matti Anttila

Splintering of the Soul a Cause of Disease? Mastery Newsletter February 4, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Is this a missing piece of the dis-ease puzzle?

 

Should we be paying attention to our souls…even before we start focusing on diet and exercise?

 

Of course, we cannot ignore what we eat and that our bodies are meant to be used.

 

But medical anthropologist Alberto Villoldo tells us that a major cause of disease is what he calls “the splintering of the soul.”

 

Villoldo studied with shamans of South America for decades. He paid a high price for it as well.

 

One day he was told by doctors his heart and liver were on the point of shutting down. He had picked up some nasty bugs.

 

He had 5 types of hepatitis, 5 types of hepatic viruses, 3 or 4 parasites and a host of toxic bacteria.

 

He went back to the jungle where his shaman friends helped to restore his health.

 

Today he is healthier than even.

 

In this journey, he made some discoveries which he outlines in his book HOW TO GROW A NEW BODY.

 

Many folks have hormones that are out of balance. Villoldo says that often this is because some of our ancestors are present in our energy field.

 

These ancestors have not worked out their energy and are using us as a “dumping ground” for their toxic energy.

Until we help these ancestors move on and leave us, diet and exercise changes may do little to help heal our bodies.

 

Villoldo feels that this kind of splintering of the soul is a major cause of disease in the world today.

 

Our task? Help our ancestors to recover their destiny.

 

Villoldo’s book contains some rituals that he has adopted from his shamanic friends.

 

May this area of study be worthy of your time and energy?

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

How To Be Safe As The World Falls Apart. Mastery Newsletter January 28, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

Every 500 years or so the world falls apart and then renews.

 

According to shamans in the South American jungle, this happened 500 years ago.

 

The Spanish conquistador Pizarro brought about the end of the Inka empire.

 

We are in the middle of such an event now.

 

A time of great danger for humanity.

 

“…we can see the signs of collapse all around us, from climate to economics to toxic cities and workplaces.”

–Alberto Villoldo writing in THE HEART OF THE SHAMAN

 

The bad news? There is nowhere that will be safe, according to Villoldo’s shaman Don Manuel.

 

The good news? “…there will be safe people, who create safety around them simply with their light.”

 

 

The question then is…How can you and I be one of those who create safety? How can you and I amplify our light?

 

Villoldo suggests a ritual.

 

Create a “despacho.” This exercise helps us to become co-creators of the universe.

 

Put salt on a plate. Place some flower petals on it. Using a toothpick, make a drawing.

 

Anything you like. Be like a child and play with it. Allow your inner artist to come out and play.

 

Be grateful for all your blessings. Give thanks for all your challenges and tests.

 

Ask that their lessons be revealed to you.

 

You may now put the salt in a bathtub and have a soak…in your own prayers.

 

“To give form to a sacred dream you have to create something with your hands—a mandala, a poem, a meal.”

 

This is one exercise to help your sacred dream come to life.

 

As always, enjoy the process.

 

Have fun.

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Hack Your Brain With the “Angels Cocktail” Mastery Newsletter January 21, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

How can we have less stress?

How can we generate the “feel-good” hormones more of the time instead of the stress hormones?

Adrenaline and cortisol are meant to kick in when we are faced with danger.

 

Someone cuts us off in traffic. Stress hormones flood the mind and body in that instant.

 

We react. The danger passes.

 

But we continue to produce those hormones and feel stressed for the rest of the day. Or even weeks, months or years afterward.

 

We are not designed for this.

 

Animals shake off their stress when the danger has passed.

 

We modern humans tend to hang on to them.

 

That is when these useful hormones become “The Devil’s Cocktail.”

 

Digestion is affected. Immune function is lowered.

 

We become irritable, intolerant, critical.

 

Memory is impaired. We make bad decisions.

 

The opposite of this is “The Angel’s Cocktail.”

 

Dopamine

Oxytocin

Serotonin

Endorphins

 

A healthy DOSE production means we lead a healthier, more fun and fulfilling life.

 

How do we do it?

 

How do we reduce stress hormones and increase the “feel good” hormones?

 

Dopamine is a highly addictive substance.

 

Alcohol, smoking, drugs, cell phone use and gambling all produce dopamine and make us feel good in the moment.

 

But all those are addictive and dangerous if unbalanced.

 

A balanced way of producing dopamine is:

 

Write down your goals.

 

Create a list of activities to reach those goals.

 

Tick off when you complete an activity.

 

That produces dopamine in a balanced and healthy way.

 

Oxytocin is known as the bonding hormone.

 

A 6-second handshake produces oxytocin.

 

So do acts of human generosity. It may well be why many people volunteer their time to worthy causes.

 

The resulting oxytocin release makes them feel good.

 

Physical contact and/or generosity is the oxytocin formula

 

Serotonin is some times called the happy chemical because it produces well being and happiness.

 

According to medicalnewstoday.com: “It appears to play a key role in maintaining mood balance. Low serotonin levels have been linked to depression.”

 

A healthy social life can keep serotonin levels balanced.

 

Not social media.

 

We may get hits of serotonin and become addicted to Facebook. But these hits are fleeting.

 

It takes actual, real live, real life contact with other humans. Sharing things with them. Spending time with them.

 

Endorphins are the body’s way of dealing with pain.

 

Laughter, especially and extended period of laughter, can produce these feel good hormones.

 

So can focusing on any hobby we enjoy. This can be playing a musical instrument.

 

Want other ideas? Wikipedia has a partial list to get you started: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_hobbies

 

Conclusions:

 

Reduce the stress hormones with meditation, laughter, smiling, deep breathing and similar techniques.

 

Increase the feel good hormones with

 

Achieving tasks

 

Having a healthy social life

 

Shaking hands and being generous

 

Laughing and challenging yourself with a hobby.

 

The brain can also be rewired over time by writing down three things you are grateful for. Do so daily.

 

These are ideas to get started with.

 

Remember to do your own research. That research can grow into a hobby that makes you feel good and empowers you.

We Need More CO2. We Don’t Have Enough. Mastery Newsletter January 14, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Geologist Gregory Wrightstone is the author of:

 

Inconvenient Facts: The Science That Al Gore Doesn’t Want You to Know.


Some points he makes in a recent

interview:

 

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is a miracle molecule. It is not a nasty thing we need to reduce.

 

“We don’t have too much CO2. We don’t have enough.”

 

We have 400 parts per million (PPM) currently. That is a gain of 130 PPM since the start of the industrial revolution.

 

However, when we look back we had 2,600 PPM. High CO2 levels is what allowed plants to flourish. The very plants we rely on for sustenance.

 

Since that time, we have dropped 2,000 PPM. And we are being told that an increase of 130 PPM is somehow a problem.

 

Wrightstone says CO2 is increasing and fossil fuels are contributing to it.

 

But, and it’s a big but, this is a good thing. We need more CO2. Warming is good. We don’t have too much. We are actually in a period of CO2 impoverishment. (!!!)

 

Wrightstone goes on to say the earth is greening. Air and water are getting cleaner. We are thriving and prospering.

 

We are being told that increasing temperatures are catastrophic. The opposite is true.

 

Warmer temperatures are contributing to the greening of the planet.

 

The current warming trend started in the late 17th Century after what was called the “little ice age.”

 

From 1250 to about 1850 a third of the world population perished because of this little ice age. So…not a good thing.

 

Each of the warming periods great civilizations rose up. The cold periods are what produced famines.

 

“The big untold story of the 21st Century and the late 20th Century is the greening of the earth.”

 

Two countries, India and China, have had a huge greening during the last 20 years.

 

Wrightstone says google it. Two words: “NASA and greening”

 

I did. Here is NASA’s report: https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/images/144540/china-and-india-lead-the-way-in-greening

 

Both countries have had “…ambitious tree-planting programs that has led to more land area being covered in vengetation.”

 

Another point.

 

Fossil fuels lift people out of energy poverty.

 

There are 4 million deaths a year from lung disease from people cooking in their homes with wood an dried dung.

 

“People who are pushing green new deal and Paris Climate Accord…(will mean dooming) billions of people around the world to generational poverty.”

 

Fossil fuels provide “abundant, affordable, reliable energy and those three words are not associated with wind or solar.”

 

“Climate Change is the deliberate corruption of the scientific process.”

 

Case in point. The UN had a report that one million species will be going extinct over the next several decades.

 

Wrightstone says he looked at the same data the UN did and found that the rate of extinctions has been in decline since the late 1800s.

 

“You would have to have 25,000 to 30,000 species going extinct every year. You know what’s been the average over the last 40 years? Two. Two!”

 

“We care about the planet and we’re preserving those species. Just the opposite of what we’re told.”

 

Wrightstone’s conclusion. It’s just media spin.

 

The game is: They need to frighten the population to accept otherwise onerous and painful things like the Green New Deal and the Paris Climate Accord.

 

The interview is here, if you are ready: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUtU1mGKCC8&feature=share&fbclid=IwAR0PHR60l2wadN8vbaAoNmzdSYLGRgwPQsXPkVTd3hD9zXgBPkc-8zbCjAY

P.S. “If the United States were to reduce 100% of its CO2 emissions, it would reduce the temperature by 7/100 of a degree Fahrenheit.”

You Are Awesome. You Have Hidden Super Powers. Mastery Newsletter January 7, 2020

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

“Our bodies contain countless healing chemical combinations modern science can’t even conceive of.” –Dr. Habib Sadeghi writing in THE CLARITY CLEANSE

 

The good doctor continues: “These chemical combinations can be as effective as drug or surgery, and most cases more so.”

 

So, the body own chemistry can be and often is more effective than drugs or surgery!

 

When patients get well on their own, without drugs or surgery, the medical folks have a phrase for it…spontaneous healing.

 

They have no other pigeonhole to stick it in. They say it just happened.

 

Here are examples.

 

Norman Cousins was diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis. A very painful form of arthritis.

 

Cousins decided to make lifestyle changes. He discovered by accident that laughing helped. So he asked a friend to provide him with comedy films.

 

He watched several episodes of a comedy called CANDID CAMERA daily.

 

The story is he laughed himself back to health. But he also made many other chances.

 

Intravenous Vitamin C was one. But his attitude was he was going to enjoy himself regardless and he was going to do anything that might help.

 

He got better and lived for many years after.

 

He used the power of his mind. He took action.

 

In his book ANATOMY OF AN ILLNESS he recalls meeting another person who suffered.

 

He visited Pablo Casals at his home arriving early in the morning.

 

Casals, the famous cellist, was racked with the pain of arthritis. And it was obvious.

 

Then Cousins witnessed what he considered a miracle. Casals began his morning ritual of practicing his cello for one hour.

 

After the hour, Casals got up and there was no indication of arthritis…none.

 

The rest of his day he was totally free of the crippling disease.

 

Dr. Bernie Siegel, author of LOVE, MEDICINE AND MIRACLES recounts the story of Arthur was given less than a year to live.

 

Dr. Siegel ran into Arthur in the grocery store five years later.

 

The good doctor asked Arthur what happened.

 

Arthur told him he had taken the advice Dr. Siegel had given him.

 

If you have only 6-12 months to live, make it the best 6-12 months of your life.

 

Arthur took that advice literally.

 

He quite the job he never liked.

 

Booked himself on the cruise he always wanted to take.

 

Took up piano, which he had always wanted to do.

 

After six months of this new life, he said he was feeling so good he didn’t have to die!

 

Five years later he was in great health and had never been sick since.

 

Are you seeing a common thread here?

 

What did Norman Cousins, Pablo Casals and Arthur have in common?

 

I’ll give you a few moments…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did you catch it?

 

They all decided to FEEL GOOD.

 

Cousins by laughing.

 

Casals by playing his beloved cello.

 

And Arthur by doing this he loved…things he had wanted to do all his life.

 

Is becoming healthier and even healing dis-eases possible just by feeling good?

 

Perhaps.

 

Dr. Sadeghi’s experience is that our bodies have the Super Power to create chemical compounds to heal us.

 

Feeling good may be the key to unlocking those compounds to do their magic.

 

And what is the key to feeling good?

 

Taking lessons from our three examples:

 

Taking charge of your life. Making the decision to get better, to heal.

 

Laughter in the case of Cousins.

 

Playing music in the case of Casals.

 

Doing the things we have always wanted to do, in Arthur’s case. Not to mention deciding to make the next 6-12 months the best time of your life.

 

Life leaves clues.

 

These clues may be the ones to uncover your body’s healing powers.

 

Your “Super Powers.”

 

We may start by deciding to set aside time for something we really engoy.

 

A 5-10 minute soak in a bathtub.

 

A walk in the woods.

 

Joining a laughter club.

 

Reading a book you love.

 

Coffee or tea with a friend.

 

Beginning meditation.

 

Yoga.

 

Ping Pong.

 

Things that nourish us.

 

The challenge is how to get fleeting moments of feeling good to expand. Eventually to the place where we feel good almost all the time.

Creative Use of Mirror Neurons. Mastery Newsletter December 31, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” -Lucille Ball

 

Easier said than done…for most of us.

 

Here is one way that is working for me.

 

This comes from a talk by Patch Adams. If you do not know his name, read here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patch_Adams

 

An amazing man who has accomplished and continues to accomplish so much in this life.

 

This is from a talk in Utrecht, Holland and the most poignant moment, the most teachable, learn-able moment comes near the end.

 

He is asked about it being hard to be optimistic, how does he keep up his optimism.

 

The answer: “…I’ve never done anything hard. I’ve never had any struggle…If you, as a designer, make you, make your personhood and then use that personhood as you decide, it’s going to be hard? I’m sorry. If you have food and a friend, what are you bitching about?”

 

 

He also spills the beans on how to love yourself:

“For the next week, every single time you pass by a mirror go ‘Oh Yeah. Me! Because once you love yourself, what anyone ever says about you doesn’t matter.”

 

We have four mirrors in our home. When I pass any one of them, I do this exercise.

 

What a difference it makes.

 

It continues to deepen my love for myself.

 

Listen, we are constantly bombarded with negativity. It seeps into our very fabric.

 

We need to get out of that muck. We need to counter it.

 

This one exercise is a delightfully powerful, wonderful antidote.

 

This exercise, more than anything I can remember for a long time, is opening me up to gratitude for all the wonderful things in life.

 

Why does it work?

 

Here is my guess: Because of “mirror neurons.”

 

When we see someone smile, that triggers the place inside us where smiles live.

 

When we see and hear someone laugh, we access the place inside where the good feeling associated with laughter lives.

 

When we smile at ourselves in the mirror, we access love and positivity.

 

This is how we can learn to deepen our love for ourselves.

 

This is how to make mirror neurons work for you.

 

See Patch Adams’ answer for yourself. It is at 19.00 minutes in this TED talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Maw4Xg-6RAw

 

Let me know how it goes for you.

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Paying Love Forward: The Shaman’s Third Giveaway. Mastery Newsletter December 17, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

“Our work as luminous warriors is to craft a new dream that will transform our world so we can birth a sustainable destiny for ourselves and for the earth.” –Alberto Villoldo in THE HEART OF THE SHAMAN.

 

Villoldo’s first two giveaways are truth and beauty. Speak your truth and see beauty everywhere.

 

The third is give away love. Ultimately it is the only thing that is yours to give.

 

“The only way to have more of everything you need to give your love freely.

 

Then everything is bestowed upon you.”

 

Freely means to give love without any expectation of return.

 

It means “…being grateful even when terrible things happen in your life…

 

It means being appreciative when life dishes out bitter herbs as well as the sumptuous feast.”

 

This is where it became (becomes?) trickier for me:

 

“Even the slightest expectation of any kind of reward will ruin the act of love you are performing. Give freely, without attachment to whether you will receive your reward on Earth of in heaven.”

 

This is what I am working on. This is a “work in progress.” Or if I prefer a “play in progress.”

 

In writing these Master Newsletters over three decades now, I have been working on just putting out the best I can. I work and play with releasing any expectation of receiving feedback.

 

Just trusting that perhaps it will do someone some good. That it will be of use to at least one person.

 

I have worked and am working on just enjoying the process of writing. Using the process as a way for me to learn about life.

 

I hope this one is of use to you.

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

How to Create Beauty. Mastery Newsletter December 10, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

This is the second of three practices from Alberto Villoldo in THE HEART OF THE SHAMAN.

 

The Creator/Great Spirit/God gave us beauty. It is up to us to continue to co-create it.

 

See beauty everywhere…even in the ugliest of situations. This is our work/play/job.

 

We are conditioned to see ugliness, says the shaman.

 

“…to get sucked into someone else’s drama, to become gossips and pessimists…

 

Let other people believe that you are naïve, that you are not in touch with reality, or that you do not watch the news…

 

As you practice beauty you get to taste infinity and touch your own immortality. You will have time to laugh, time to meditate, time to help others…

 

Bring beauty to every moment by smiling sincerely. Give others your joy. Give others the gift of seeing beauty within them and within every situation…

 

Speak words of beauty, including the words Thank you. Find something beautiful in the person you are speaking with, even if it is a difficult and challenging conversation…

 

This is your sacred task…Give your beauty freely unto others, and beauty will surround you until the end of your days.”

 

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Your Truth Can Help Create a New Vision for the World. Mastery Newsletter December 3, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

“The truth” of history and the truth of facts is the truth of others.

 

In THE HEART OF THE SHAMAN, Alberto Villoldo tells us that your truth is in your heart.

 

It is “born from your experience, from how you suffered and how you healed and how you forgive and how you love.”

 

The world needs a new vision.

 

And we can all help to create that new vision by speaking our truth.

 

Villoldo’s first shamanic practice is to speak your truth. To not be afraid anything bad will happen.

 

In fact, he says we begin to wither when we do not live truthfully.

 

He says to “Share your truth freely. Give it away by example, by living it.”

 

Your truth encourages you to lead from vulnerability, “to expose your soft underbelly, to take off the emotional armor.”

 

This requires us to have faith. To believe that it is ok to show weakness.

 

“Speak your truth and stand for what you believe in, even when you think it might risk your career, your marriage or your reputation. Speak freely, knowing that you are safe and the universe will conspire to keep you so.”

 

To create a new vision for the world “…dream of the possible before you weigh the odds of it succeeding. This is what it means to live fearlessly…”

 

In practice, speaking your truth is giving it away by having an attitude of:

 

“What can I do for you?”

 

“Can I be of help?” Or

 

“How can I be of service?”

Is Your Soul Being Stolen? Dr. Klinghardt and The Perfect Storm. Mastery Newsletter November 26, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Dr. Klinghardt* says Rudolph Steiner** forecast that corporations would attempt to steal our souls by the end of the 20th Century.

 

Dr. Klinghardt says the “perfect storm” for this theft may be the combination of four things: Aluminum, Glyphosate, Fluoride and Wifi.

 

Our pineal gland is the receptor for higher fields of energy. It is also the modulator for our endocrine system and our immune system and much more.

 

Dr. Klinghardt says pineal glands have been severely calcified and no longer functions at full capacity.

 

The reason? The pineal is highly sensitive to four things: Aluminum, Glyphosate, Fluoride and Wifi.

 

These four things being introduced is either it is a coincidence or a group of humans has come under the influence of some dark energy and are attempting to steal our souls.

Morning Empowerment. Mastery Newsletter November 19, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

What we do first thing in the morning makes a huge, humongous difference to the rest of the day…

 

What we do can set the tone for the day…and for our lives.

 

I got caught, as many have, in checking emails, Facebook, news sites on the web first thing after waking up.

 

Sometimes a “rabbit hole” sucked me in too…

 

Recently I was guided to consider making a change.

 

And wow…what a difference in my day every time…

 

If you were to choose to give up checking emails, texts, social media, web news, radio news, TV news and all the rest, what would you replace it with?

 

It can feel a little empty. A craving can arise. After all, social media sites are designed to give you a dopamine hit…

 

So we would have to create a stronger dopamine hit and perhaps the other “feel-good” hormones as well: serotonin, endorphins, oxytocin.

 

Here is what I did. Perhaps this will give you some ideas as well.

 

Thanks to Gene (GF) for this first idea.

 

Immediately upon waking, I say five times out loud: “I’m awake. I’m alive. I feel great!”

 

Then roll out of bed…right away. (True confession: still working on getting this one down.)

 

Then the bathroom. Run the bath for my morning ice bath.

 

A few minutes of yoga asanas.

 

Wim Hof iceman breathing.

 

Then, after the ice has done its work for 5 minutes or more, get in the bath.

 

Hot shower, then cold again.

 

Morning meditation for 20 minutes at least.

 

Now, I have to tell you it has become easier to stay away from social media having done all this…

 

So I replace it with some writing. I am writing this, for example, right after my meditation.

 

You can choose to spend half an hour reading. Brian Tracy, the motivational speaker, attributes his success to spending an hour reading first thing in the morning.

 

Now you can add dopamine to your morning by having a “to do” list ready to go from the previous night.

 

Get to the most challenging thing, the most difficult thing first.

 

Checking that off your list gives a huge dopamine hit.

 

Now, for me, I wait until I feel hunger before I put anything in my mouth. You may be a morning coffee person. This is all individual choice and depends on what kind of diet you are on.

 

Some will have porridge. Others fruit. Still others may be doing the celery juice.

 

Note that I am writing before any breakfast.

 

And choosing to wait until real hunger pangs hit. Often that is quite a bit later in the morning.

 

I am working toward staying away from emails, social media and web stuff and news until noon.

 

Since starting this a short time ago, I can tell you…what a difference in energy level and positive outlook on life it has made.

 

If any of this sounds good, you may choose to conduct an experiment.

 

Try one thing first. Maybe a short meditation or a few yoga asanas. Push the social media etc. off just a few minutes at first.

 

Eventually you may feel enough benefit to easily and effortlessly leave all that stuff until noon.

 

Such a sense of empowerment. When we choose to create a morning that we want. And not be sucked into the many rabbit holes first thing.

 

Just some thoughts for your consideration.

 

Thanks for reading.

 

Let me know how it goes.

We Are Mirrors to Each Other. Mastery Newsletter November 12, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

What is it that most bothers you about other people?

 

Is there one person who does something that really bugs you?

 

Are there a number of people who do things that irritate you in some way?

 

Take a moment and think about it…

 

Pause a few moments while you reflect on this…

 

Now tell me…what was the most bothersome thing that anyone other than you did?

 

When I thought about it, here is what I found:

 

One person who I had dinner with didn’t stop talking about their most recent health discovery. The whole dinner it felt as if I couldn’t get a word in edgeways…

 

Another person spent half an hour explaining a system they had set up that I had zero interest in.

 

Two other friends disagree with me on a topic and I felt belittled for having an opposite view.

 

Yet another instance: someone is upset with me for something I didn’t do.

 

Ok, by now you will likely have at least one thing that someone has done or does that bothers you in some way.

 

GET READY!

 

Did it bother you that someone is a murderer?

 

Tamal Dodge asked this question from a room full of folks.

 

Then he asked why no one said it bothered them that someone is a murderer?

 

There were many complaints about what others did, but no one complained that murder took place.

 

Murder was not the number one thing that bothered anyone in that audience.

 

It wasn’t for me and I bet it likely was not for you either.

 

Tamal’s point is that what bothers us in others is what is in us.

 

What we see in others is a mirror of what is going on in us.

 

You and I are not murderers so we don’t see that in others.

 

We only see what they mirror back to us.

 

To go back to my examples.

 

I tend to go on and on about my most recent health discovery. So when others do it, I see me reflected in them.

 

I enjoy tinkering with organizational systems in my life. I love to organize my investment patterns for example. I can get excited and prattle on about it. When someone else does it, it bothers me.

 

I can be judgemental of others. So when someone is judgemental of me, it triggers me.

 

But I am not a murderer so it did not occur to me that murder is something to get more upset about than someone bending my ear for an extended period.

 

 

What this can do for me is just be aware of what bothers me in others…then look inside and see how I am doing that.

 

My job? To use the mirror others hold in front of me to fine tune my actions. Actions that may get under someone else’s skin.

 

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Life is Not Hard if You Love Yourself. Mastery Newsletter November 5, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Patch Adams has been a “clown doctor” for half a century.

 

He found that less than 3% of people have self-esteem.

 

Less than 5% knew what living a life of vitality is all about.

 

He found the normal adult did not like themselves, their marriage or their job.

 

He himself attempted suicide three times before the age of 18. He did not want to live in a world of violence and injustice.

 

He then realized you don’t have to kill yourself, you can make a revolution. And that’s what he did.

 

He decided to be happy every second of his life. That expanded to be happy, funny, loving, cooperative, creative and thoughtful.

 

Being loving was the most challenging. That’s why he took to clowning. It was the trick to get close to loving.  

 

In 1971 he created a free hospital. Twenty adults, 3 of them doctors lived communally in a 6-bedroom house. 500 to a thousand people in their home a month. 5 to 50 overnight guests.

 

They accepted no health insurance. Just provided everything free.

 

No one would fund them because they refused to get malpractice insurance.

 

They paid their doctors the same as the cleaning staff: $300 a month. All live in the hospital.

 

For these $3600 a year paid positions they get thousands applying every year.

 

Loneliness: A Great Travesty of Our Time

 

Adams says the nuclear family is a failed experiment.

 

For 80 million years we lived communally.

 

The nuclear family experiment has created an epidemic of loneliness.

 

He claims depression is not an illness…it is a symptom of loneliness.

 

The solution? Live communally.

 

Life is not hard, says Adams.

 

“If you are you…If you as a designer make you, make your personhood and then use that personhood as you decide, it’s going to be hard? I’m sorry, if you have food and a friend, what are you bitching about?”

 

His theme? Once you love yourself, what others say doesn’t matter. You’re looking for ways to spend your love.

 

My take away from his talk:

 

Love yourself. Every time you pass a mirror, look at you and say you love your self.

 

Dive into the ocean of gratitude and don’t look for the shore.

 

Connect with friends. Stay connected.

 

Be a clown. It’s the trick to getting close to love.

 

Help others. It is a key to fulfillment.

 

Be happy, funny, loving, cooperative, creative and thoughtful.

Your Powerful Mind. Mastery Newsletter October 27, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health

As we grow in self-awareness,

 

As we learn more,

 

As we release more of our emotional angst, our traumas, our tensions,

 

As we do all this, we awaken more of our power.

 

As we do this, our thoughts become more and more powerful.

 

Do you believe as I do that our thoughts can create our reality?

 

If so, then having more powerful thoughts means our thoughts have a greater effect on our reality.

 

Therefore, it becomes incumbent upon us to watch what we think much more carefully.

 

It becomes critically important that we “Stand guard at the portal of thought.”

 

That we do not allow negative thoughts.

 

Or at least limit those as much as possible.

 

Fearful thoughts can now more easily create the thing we fear.

 

Growing in awareness is a double edged sword.

 

Our thoughts have more power now.

 

Our work now includes releasing fears.

 

Our deep seated fears can now surface.

 

When they do, our work is to release them.

 

Unless we do so, we risk having those fears come true.

 

How do we know when our work is done?

 

If you are still on Planet Earth, there is still work to do.

 

The trick is to enjoy the challenge.

 

Whatever challenges we face are there for a reason.

 

For us to face them…head on, with gusto, with commitment, with joy.

 

Enjoy the journey…as always…

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

 

 

Matti Anttila

Taking Responsibility Leads to Fulfillment. Mastery Newsletter August 26, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Mastery Newsletter

There are many areas of our lives where many of us have given up responsibility. Given the responsibility to someone else.

 

Examples include the most important area: health.

 

Health is the most important simply because without it, we don’t have energy to do anything else or to enjoy life.

 

What good is money with out energy to use it to have fun?

 

What good are houses, cars or other toys if we don’t have health and a positive attitude to enjoy them with?

 

What good are our relationships if we don’t have the motivation to enjoy exchanging energy with our loved ones?

 

Health includes fitness but is not defined by it. You can be perfectly fit and perfectly unhealthy.

 

Witness Jim Fixx who wrote the book on running called RUNNING. He ran 20 miles day 7 days a week. He died of a heart attack at age 52. Perfectly fit and dead.

 

Fitness answer? Super Slow. The most efficient and effective exercise. 20 minutes once a week. All you need. Takes away any and all guilt and anxiety about not getting enough exercise.

 

Health? More complex. Keto/Paleo diets on one side. Medical Medium (MM) on the other.

 

Keto/Paleo means lots of fat, medium protein, very little carbs…stay away from fruits generally.

 

MM means lots of fruit. Aaargh. What to do?

 

Experiment. Try both if you like. At different times.

 

As in scientific experiments, try something. Notice the result. Make changes.

 

Try something else. Repeat.

 

Money. If you are behind the 8 ball, get help from a credit counsellor. But don’t rely only on them. Take responsibility.

 

For example, I once owed over $70,000 to Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). 4 Pillars counsellors and I decided to offer them $10,800. $180 a month for 60 months. CRA refused the offer.

 

4 Pillars said we have to offer more. I said no, let me write them a letter. I used the techniques I learned from FBI negotiator Chris Voss and crafted a letter. CRA rep accepted the $10,800.

 

4 Pillars lady said you are so lucky. That is the toughest guy we deal with at CRA and he accepted.

 

It was because of Chris Voss’s principles…not mine!

 

The book is called NEVER SPLIT THE DIFFERENCE.

 

If you have money saved, go directly to William O’Neill’s book HOW TO MAKE MONEY IN STOCKS. The most effective investment system.

 

Best risk/reward ratio. Downside protection at 7-8%, upside potential double digits…at least.

 

Study. Then 20 minutes a day. Cut out 20 minutes of Netflix. You DO have the time.

 

Sales/negotiation skills. We use sales every day. We are ALL negotiators.

 

Most are not aware of this and stumble through life with a wrong idea about sales: the used car salesman. Ugh.

 

Chris Voss was the top FBI negotiator. Wherever there was an American taken hostage they flew him in. He and his team fine tuned the most elegant negotiation set of skills anywhere on the planet.

 

Yours for free: book is in the library. NEVER SPLIT THE DIFFERENCE.

 

Career and business success. Best way to develop skills: BOTH theory and practice.

 

To develop any skill, two things are needed. Most skip the first.

 

Let’s take public speaking as an example. Just get up and do it. Get over the fear by doing it over and over. That works, of course.

 

However, it also means we are learning by trial and error. And we don’t have enough time to make all the mistakes.

 

Instead, I suggest a better route is study theory AND practice.

 

My speaking “guru”’ is Andy Harrington. I saw him make over $750,000 income in one 90-minute talk. Do you suppose he has something to say about the structure of how to be a successful speaker? I’m in. How about you?

 

There are lots of good mentors for any skills you are looking to develop. You can find them.

 

Listen to your intuition. Choose one. Theory AND practice.

 

Relationships. Dan Buettner’s book THE BLUE ZONES talks about Okinawa where people live to past 90, past 100 in good health. How? One major ingredient is relationships.

 

The women get together for one hour every day. They talk, they kibitz, they laugh, they have fun.

 

Creating deep bonds with other humans is critical to supporting our life energy

 

5-6 friends is the ideal number, by the way…according to one researcher.

 

Clean Ups/Completions. You can’t feel good if you live in a mess. Clean things up.

 

David Allen has a system that works well. GETTING THINGS DONE. It’s in the library.

 

Essential, according to me. Because it is also a superb way to get organized. And we all need that to feel a sense of control in our lives.

 

Meditation/Reflection. Sharpening the Saw as Steven Covey said. (7 HABIT OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE)

 

Have one day a week devoted to nothing. Have fun. Reflect on life. Recharge the batteries.

 

Daily meditation is ideal. It is actually really easy to get started. JOY ON DEMAND by Chade Meng Tan is a great primer.

 

Happiness? You still want that? OK then.

 

THE ZEN OF JOY, by me. Subtitle: HOW TO REWIRE YOUR BRAIN FOR HAPPINESS AND SUCCESS. MINUTES A DAY TO BOOST YOUR PERFORMANCE, PRODUCTIVITY AND PROFITS.

 

To summarize.

 

Health: experiment.  

 

Money: get control.

 

Career skills: Theory AND practice.

 

Relationships: deepen them with 5 or 6 folks.

 

Sales/negotiation skills: Chris Voss.

 

Organize/clean ups: David Allen.

 

Meditation: JOY ON DEMAND.

 

Happiness: THE ZEN OF JOY.

 

Tag you’re it. Over to you. Get going. One step at a time.

The Money Mafia. We Are at a Tipping Point.   Mastery Newsletter August 13, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

“The World in Crisis” is the subtitle of this book written by Paul Hellyer*.

 

Ideas from the book:

 

A small group of greedy men took away your power and mine.

 

Their goal total control of the world and rapid depopulation of the world.

 

The method is control of the money supply.

 

Part of his action plan to right things is to take back the creation of money from the Cabal, his term for “The Money Mafia.

 

Hellyer maintains that cheap and efficient energy is available to us and kept secret to line the pockets of the greedy.

 

Also kept secret is that governments, especially the U.S. government, have had contact with aliens for decades.

 

* Paul Hellyer is one of Canada’s best known and most controversial politicians.

 

First elected in 1949, he was the youngest cabinet minister appointed to Louis S. St. Laurent’s government eight years later.

 

He subsequently held senior posts in the governments of Lester B. Pearson and Pierre E. Trudeau, who defeated him for the Liberal Party leadership in 1968.

 

The following year, after achieving the rank of senior minister, which was later designated Deputy Prime Minister, Hellyer resigned from the Trudeau cabinet on a question of principle related to housing.

 

Although Hellyer is best known for the unification of the Canadian Armed Forces and for his 1968 chairmanship of the Task Force on Housing and Urban Development, he has maintained a life-long interest in macroeconomics.

 

Through the years, as a journalist and political commentator, he has continued to fight for economic reforms and has written several books on the subject.

 

A man of many interests, Hellyer’s ideas are not classroom abstractions.

 

He was born and raised on a farm and his business experience includes manufacturing, retailing, construction, land development, tourism and publishing.

 

He has also been active in community affairs including the arts and studied voice at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto.

 

His multi-faceted career, in addition to a near-lifetime in politics, gives Hellyer a rare perspective on what has gone wrong with world economies.

Laughter Yoga Principles to Live By Part 2. Mastery Newsletter August 6, 2019

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Another Principle of Laughter Yoga:

 

Motion Creates Emotion.

 

Last time we look at the principle of “fake it till you make it.”

 

In Laughter Yoga sessions, another principles is “Motion Creates Emotion.”

 

We are encouraged to move around while doing the Laughter exercises.

 

We find is that when we move, we shake things up a bit.

 

This movement stirs up energy in our bodies and our minds.

 

We become somewhat looser and energetic at the same time.

 

Our minds make more neuronal connections. This can and often does lead to coming up with ideas. Ideas, ah-ha moments that can help us solved sticky problems and issues in our lives.

 

Doctors, fitness instructors and health coaches all encourage us to move our bodies.

 

By doing so energetically, whether laughing, dancing, playing sports and/or walking, we can help improve our fitness levels.

 

A better fitness level can mean better mental function.

 

“Motion Creates Emotion” principle also means we can also find better emotional balance in our lives.

 

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,
