FOCUS: Agreements, Quality & Vision

Agreements 

At times can get lost in translation. What happens once it is no longer upheld? We make choices or agreements with ourselves that can determine how life unfolds after that point. I’ve learned it’s better to walk away from an agreement if it doesn’t feel right or becomes exhausting. The quicker you can assess a situation the less energy you will expend walking to find middle ground that may or may not exist. It will feel better knowing you did not compromise what you offer. Even with all that said …. I thought there was a mutual agreement to never use these photos but a choice was made.

 

 

Quality 

The measurement of value. This one is interesting from a creative perspective because value can often be governed by opinion. If you offer what no one else can or will then your value/demand will increase. The opposite is true. Set yourself apart and know why and who your valuable to. Ask yourself “How much would I pay me” and be real. I often see people asking for prices I know I wouldn’t pay them for but that’s my opinion, another person may find value in it. Stay consistent, hold yourself to a high standard and remind the free-spirits being creative is also work that should be valued as such.

 

 

Vision 

Every perspective isn’t created equal. The lens you see the world through is crafted by your experiences in life. Observe what your thoughts are when you look at someone for the first time. Notice where your eyes like to look. I think it’s a good way to see where your mind is at in the moment. Dreams teach through vision, how many lessons are you learning each day/night? Ever view anything that seemed outside of this reality, foreign to human existence? Abandoned planets made in gold and ink colored creatures that will attack if you violate. Beautiful landscapes that would bring tears to your eyes. How do you push the limits of your visual abilities? Everything you experience effects how you see the world and will show once you press that button. Stay focused

 

 

Be Metaphysical: Am I Pushing The Limits?

I wanted to document some of what I experienced during a ‘magical ‘ meditation session last night. After a wonderful skype session with my friend Bria I decided to go into some deep thought. I watched the thoughts come and go before I really focused in on the issues that were on my mind. Screen shot 2014-03-22 at 1.14.08 PM Recently my Grandma passed so I wanted to dwell on some good memories of her and just relive moments. That went very well and brought me closer to the closure that I have been reaching for.

So after I made it pass most of my earthly concerns and pondering I wanted to do some Astral travel/ Energy work to see what “eye could see”  and feel being I was in a great relaxed state mentally and physically.  

I grabbed a few stones/crystals  specifically Shattuckite, Lapis Lazuli, Quartz Pointer and Citrine programmed them with the intention to do as stated above astral/energy work. Put them all under my pillow and laid down and began my sequence of focusing on breath rhythm and seeing the light form in the darkness of my eye lids.   I Have been reading a book called Ringmakers of Saturn, they have said there is actually humungous ships that are actually  filtering the “Rings” of Saturn. Having previous experience of seeing foreign planets via dreams/meditation methods I wanted to try to go “see” for myself.   I began my planetary meditation method and vaguely  the Rings to the left of the planet came into vision … I specifically wanted to see the ships that were filtering the rings. Screen shot 2014-03-22 at 1.13.22 PMKnowing that  thoughts are what control the astral body to a certain degree ( a bit deeper than that ) I “thought” to see the ships …. thats when a sudden rush of fear came over me.  It really came out of no where I was not scared or fearful previous to that thought. Right after this sense of fear came over me  It was a very intense shake in my body….. which jolted me out of my meditation and basically back into my physical senses.  Right after that happened I was in a whoaaa  state of mind and had a dominant thought it my mind that I was being tracked…. A few minutes after I just fell asleep. That thought stuck with me all day. Screen shot 2014-03-25 at 12.40.50 AMToday was gloomy/weird being i’m trying to figure out all this cosmic astral stuff  while doing normal life task like shopping for cashews, bananas and getting the car washed.   Im not sure if I can fully explain what happened yet but I did ask for some guidance on this one  and I was led back to a book that started it all  written by Sylvan Muldoon and Hereward Carrington. I think some of the answers I am looking for are in there.  I will not be trying to go back to Saturn anytime this month at least.  This is the second time I have been denied access to a place .. this time im not sure if it was denial but it felt like i got kicked out.  Ill continue posting my meditation experiences writing them out helps me remember and learn more. Peace and Be Metaphysical

 

Be Metaphysical: The Pineal Guide

The Pineal Gland/ Third eye has been known to be the source of seeing visions beyond physical reality. A subject that has interested cultures throughout the test of time. Here I will try to provide information on how each part of the mind work in unison.

Pineal Gland —> Serotonin —-> Melatonin –> Inner-Lightment

By understanding this cycle it will help you know how to give your body what is required to increase pineal gland activity awareness. What’s fascinating is that the interior of the pineal gland actually has retinal tissue composed of rods and cones (photoreceptors) inside its interior lining just like the eye, and is even wired into the visual cortex in the brain. pineal-gland“The photoreceptors of the retina strongly resemble the cells of the pineal gland. Considered the most powerful and highest source of ethereal energy available to humans, the pineal gland has always been important in initiating supernatural powers. Development of psychic abilities has been closely associated with this organ of higher vision. The third eye controls the various bio-rhythms of the body. It works in harmony with the hypothalamus gland which directs the body’s thirst, hunger, sexual desire and the biological clock that determines our aging process. When it “awakens”, one feels a pressure at the base of the brain. This gland produces several hormones such as norepinepherine, serotonin and melatonin, which regulate mood and sleep patterns. The Pineal Gland has the highest level of blood flow over any other organ in the body. Several foods and herbs can contribute to the health and regulation of the pineal gland. The pineal gland is able to measure day length and adjust secretion of melatonin accordingly. The two hormones we will focus on is serotonin and melatonin.

Serotonin acts as a neurotransmitter, a type of chemical that helps relay signals from one area of the brain to another.  Approximately 90% of the human body’s total serotonin is located in the enterochromaffin cells in the in the epithelia lining the lumen of the digestive tract and the respiratory tract. Serotonin secreted from the enterochromaffin cells eventually finds its way out of tissues into the blood. Screen shot 2014-03-10 at 7.11.17 AMThere, it is actively taken up by blood cells, which store it.  Functions include the regulation of mood, appetite, and sleep. Serotonin also has some cognitive functions, including memory and learning. Serotonin is produced is through hydroxylation, introducing oxygen and hydrogen (OH)  into a organic compound. Hydroxylation converts lipophilic compounds into water soluble products that are more readily excreted. It involves the conversion of CH carbon hydrogen into COH carbon oxygen hydrogen.

Hydroxylase + Tryptophan(1 of 22 amino acids) = Serotonin

Melatonin a structurally simple hormone that communicates information about environmental lighting to various parts of the body. Ultimately, melatonin has the ability to entrain biological rhythms and has important effects on reproductive function of many animals. Within the pineal gland, serotonin is acetylated and then methylated to yield melatonin.melatonin

Synthesis and secretion of melatonin is dramatically affected by light exposure to the eyes. The fundamental pattern observed is that serum concentrations of melatonin are low during the daylight hours, and increase to a peak during the dark. Melatonin has important effects in integrating photoperiod and affecting circadian rhythms. Consequently, it has been reported to have significant effects on reproduction, sleep-wake cycles and other phenomena showing circadian rhythm. Administration of melatonin has been shown to decrease motor activity, induce fatigue and lower body temperature, particularly at high doses.

third-eye-chakra-5The pineal gland produces the serotonin and melatonin your body needs for everyday regulation and feeling good. The function as a receptor for visual images beyond physical reality is sometime overlooked. In order for your pineal gland to work as it should you must first provide the tools it needs to function at full potential. Serotonin levels are affected by diet. An increase in the ratio of tryptophan to phenylalanine and leucine will increase serotonin levels.

Foods with high levels of tryptophan: Chocolate, oats, dates,peanutes, seasame, bananas , chic peas, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds.try 

Research also suggests eating a diet rich in carbohydrates and low in protein will increase serotonin by secreting insulin, which helps in amino acid competition. However, increasing insulin for a long period may trigger the onset of insulin resistance, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and lower serotonin levels.

Hydroxylase + Tryptophan(1 of 22 amino acids) = Serotonin

Muscles use 12 of the 13 amino acid groups (not using tryptophan), allowing more muscular individuals to produce more serotonin

Hydroxylation is just adding  oxygen to a CH (Carbon Hydrogen) bond.  Deep breathing will assist in bringing in more oxygen as well as blood circulation allowing more hormones to be released and absorbed.

That is the key,  eat foods that will increase amino acid competition. Exercise and build up the demand of muscle related amino acids to increase competition and serotonin/melatonin production which is pineal gland activity on a biological level.  Once you overstand the information  im sure moving forward to a more metaphysical perspective will be the next step.Screen shot 2014-03-10 at 7.36.36 AMThe best way I can describe  seeing with the third eye  is: Imagine a situation like ( jogging on a track) through first person perspective. You can see your surroundings mentally as if it were reality in the moment but it feels like your seeing based on a memory. So as it is happening it feels like your seeing based on the imprint of the memories being created instantaneously.    Be metaphysical

Age Reversing Drug???

As we age, many of us may struggle to remember simple things, such as directions or what film we watched last night. But researchers from the University of Florida say they have discovered a drug that has the potential to reverse mild cognitive decline among older adults.

This is according to a study recently published in the Journal of Neuroscience.

The research team, including Prof. Jennifer Bizon of the university’s Department of Neuroscience, explains that the type of memory responsible for the recall of day-to-day items is known as the “working memory.”

We use this memory for everyday activities, such as calculating the final bill after dining in a restaurant.

Prof. Bizon explains that in order to work out a 15% tip, for example, our brains must hold multiple pieces of information in mind for short periods, such as remembering the cost of dinner while calculating the amount of money needed for a tip. This process is central to working memory among other “higher” cognitive processes, according to Prof. Bizon.

In order for working memory to function properly, there must be the right balance of chemicals in the brain. But in their study, which was conducted in rats, the researchers found that high levels of an inhibitory brain neurotransmitter called GABA may disrupt working memory.

Book Select: Face to Face

“Professor A. Ramachandran has contributed significantly to the Indian art scene. He has been a ceaseless experimenter and a versatile artist. Over the years his paintings have acquired a classical monumentality and his use of medium and colours luminosity. He has also created a substantial body of sculptures. This book of three essays and a photo-essay is being published on the occasion of his solo exhibition in New York in December 2007, featuring faces from Rajasthan, studies of heads in oil and a suite of ten watercolours.f2f The book crystallizes the artist’s philosophy of life and his persona and his relationship with his subjects and himself while distilling his philosophy of the surge of life force in all things in the universe. It highlights his observations about his aesthetics and the evolution of his distinctive visual style, as well as the influences of Kerala and Santiniketan in moulding his artistic sensibilities. His engagement with modernism does not confine itself to expressing himself through an international idiom, but reinventing a traditional idiom to suit a contemporary sensibility. Besides his paintings, he has also created a substantial body of sculptures.” – The Guild

My Experience:

There is an interesting story to how I came into possession of this stone. I was in Miami for a few weeks enjoying myself. I decided to walk around and see if anything caught my eye for purchase. As I began to cross the street I had a clue to what I would experience in the immediate future. The thought ” You are going to find familiar energy but It wont be like your used to” So right after that thought crossed my mind I looked up and I see a crystal shop… Nice I thought. So I go inside and look around at the fairly large collection of stones. The crystal shops I usually go into are very relaxed and allow you to handle/inspect the crystals however you please. This shop was run a bit different by one lady who I assumed owned the shop. I grabbed a stone off of the shelf and began to hold it … soon after the owner of the shop was on my back asking if I wanted to purchase. I first asked If she herself own crystals and calmly explained how I would like to feel them before I buy. That was enough to keep her off of my back for 20 seconds. She continued pushing me to buy so I again repeated what was said earlier, Id like to touch and look at the crystals before I buy.  She did not accept that as an answer and continued to press the issue of what if other customers come in, as we debate in this store very alone. At this point I simply said okay put the stone down and left. There was no point of me staying my mind couldn’t wrap itself around the idea of the owner forcing me to buy something of a spiritual nature. sh3 The whole day and night I thought on it. The next day it came to me that I should really go back and try again with the intention of teaching this lady what I thought could be a valuable lesson in patience. Clarity was my second agenda. The thought of someone else being in the store on my return came to mind and not to my surprise  there was a new person in the store once I returned the following night. I walked in intentionally with a few Macy bags, just to give off the perspective that yes I do have money and spend. Maybe she thought I couldn’t afford the stones. Either way I walk in and the new young lady that was there was more than helpful showed me stones let me hold them, didnt mention buying anything once. So as I hold the angelite stone I feel the presence of the owner as well as see her in my peripheral vision. She walks up to me and says oh your back again, maybe you buy this time.  We immediately begin the exchange of sharp aggressively toned comments to each other in the nature of   Me -“You cant force anyone to buy things”  … Her -“You touch touch touch buy you no buy”  in her deep latin accent.  I began even pleading with her saying why are you making it such a difficult experience for me I have bags of clothes I can careless about, I just want to buy a stone.” sh4But there was a breakthrough… In a flash like moment I understood why there was conflict. I was used to a different treatment in other stores but that did not change the fact that this is her store and her policy is different. Once that settled in I said okay I will not touch any more. I followed my word but I surely stayed in the store for about an hour pointing at each and every stone asking for explanation before purchasing two Shattuckite stones. I found it effective.   The same night I saw a shooting star while in deep breathing meditation holding the piece below.
