The world has gone mad! Correction. Humans have gone mad! No other species causes so much self-destruction, decimation of its environment and ruin to its own species. The good news is that there are an increasing number of people who do love, care and share with those around them. Isn’t it time we started expanding the circle of such conscious people?
In ‘Transcending the Grandest Illusions’, readers will discover the ten grandest illusions that have taken humanity and our planet to the brink of destruction. The balance can only be redressed by individuals who step up to the plate in their lives and take charge of their own lives before they inspire others to do the same. In ‘Transcending the Grandest Illusions’, readers will also learn about ten of the most transformative practices to switch their life from being deluded by the plethora of illusions. Furthermore, the ten solutions also aid practitioners into stepping into their own brilliance.

Now that I am back in the full swing of things, I’d like to share one of the very important distinctions that I had already in 2012. On the second day of the year, a dear friend and renowned expert speaker in the area of the corporate soul, Molly Harvey, gave me a timely reminder. She asked me about the different activities that I am involved in and wanted to know what were the areas I was most passionate about with all my heart.
After some deep introspection, I realised that although I was excellent in a number of areas, my heart was not completely in many of those areas. So, decided that I would do a New Year’s clean of my own activities. This has left me with one area in which I love and that generates a regular income and the one area I am most passionate about – sharing with audiences and readers the importance of working with their Higher Self and being very discerning about what is real and what are fantasies. Thus, in 2012, I will be focusing much more on working with people who are on a spiritual path whilst maintaining a fulfilling human life.
Like many, there was natural resistance to me letting go of my many planned activities. What would my family say? Won’t I be disappointing those who have invested so much of their time with me? Blah, blah, blah! I realised that is just my ego talking. 2012 cannot be a year where emotional is invested in the graveyard of yesterday nor even in the vagueness of tomorrow’s dream. The reality is today, right here and right now. Shifts happen. As my friend David Hyner suggests, they happen one micro-decision at a time.
So I share with you these questions to ponder on:
- What are the activities that you are most passionate about?
- What activities are draining you most?
- How much are you willing to cut out or eradicate draining activities and when will you start?
- What will you be doing more of that is aligned with your passion? When?
Enjoy the journey!
Every year, millions of people, in an effort to create a better life for themselves, make New Year’s Resolutions. According to research by ShareSlide, 52% of people are confident of success, yet only 12% actually succeed. So why don’t resolutions work for 88% of people?
The answers are manifold. First, the etymology of ‘resolution’ is ‘to resolve’ or ‘to dissolve’. This pressuposes there is a problem to fix in the first place. As the conscious mind is a mere 5% of the entire mind at best, the subconscious and the unconscious mind work become problem-focused instead of ‘solution-based’. Thus, changing the approach from ‘resolution’ to an ‘intention’, for example, is far more powerful in attaining one’s goals.
Second, having an intention (resolution) with the intellect alone is nothing more than wishful thinking. When one aligns their intention with positive thoughts/goal, feelings, intuition, the physical body and their non-judgemental, non-critical observer, the probability of success is infinitely higher. One of the common traits of the 12% who have been successful in realising their resolutions is having a powerful, systematic goal-setting system. One such system is known as the Massive Goal Principle, which was devised by David Hyner following more than 12 year’s of research into the thinking and behaviour of top achievers.
Third, another important reason why resolutions fail is that the human mind is feeble when it comes to changing habits. Habits are stubborn routines that do not like change. Whilst changing one habit is hard enough, most people try to change several in one go. The conscious mind can only focus on a few things at a time. Dealing with everyday life stressors AND changing one’s habits is a step too far. The probability of successfully changing habits increase significantly when they are done one habit at a time over a course of a year. It is better to work for 30 days at a time on changing from an old bad habit to a new empowering one.
Fourth, the power of language cannot be underestimated when it comes to making New Year’s Resolutions. Far too many people focus on losing or quitting something and then they wonder why they fail so gloriously. NLP practitioners will be more than willing to tell you that the subconscious minds does not operate on a negative system of commands. When a person tells themselves they wish to lose weight, they may go to sleep hoping and praying they will be slimmer. However, the powerful subsconscious mind is reminded it has a lot of weight and, consequently, goes to sleep as a fat person. Changing one’s language and self-affirmations to positive, solution-orientated goals increases the likelihood of attaining the goal.
There is much more that can be said about resolutions, but I wish to finish on one note. When one operates from a place of hopes, dreams and aspirations alone, they are more likely to be gullible to the many illusions created by society. The human mind falling foul to these illusions become enslaved. When one becoming more discerning about false beliefs that they have as well as the ones propagated by society, they are less likely to have expectations. The greater the gap between one’s expectations and REALITY, the greater the disappointment. It is not about changing one’s life that matters so much. It is about transformation and making a difference. One cannot hope to transform something if they do not know what that something is. Thus, I ask readers this: Get to know YOUR SELF. Gain knowledge and understanding of who and what you really are. Take the necessary action to align the faculties of your being/mind – your thoughts, feelings, intuition, physical body and your observer self. Then, one opens themselves up to becoming a centre for receiving vision. They become what is known as a ‘true visionary’.

A few weeks ago, I had my Live Blood Analysis done at the Orassy Kendron with Geeta Tailor. Even though I considered myself as a healthy eater, I was shocked to see the state of my blood due to my lack of water (I thought I drank plenty), the parasites and the coke can-a-day habit. So I found the information below very useful. Enjoy reading!
- 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (Likely applies to half the world population)
- In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is mistaken for hunger.
- Even MILD dehydration will slow down one’s metabolism as 3%.
- One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.
- Lack of water, the number one trigger of daytime fatigue.
- Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
- A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.
- Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%., and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.
Are you drinking the amount of water you should drink every day?
- In many states in the US, the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in the trunk to remove blood from the highway after a car accident.
- You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coke and it will be gone in two days.
- To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl and let the ‘real thing’ sit for one hour, then flush clean.
- The citric acid in Coke removes stains from vitreous china.
- To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: pour a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion. (Make sure you do not inhale fumes).
- To loosen a rusted bolt: apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes.
- To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. Thirty minutes before ham is finished, remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mixwith the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.
- To remove grease from clothes: empty a can of Coke into the load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help loose grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your windshield.
FOR YOUR INFORMATION:
- The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. It will dissolve a nail in about four days. Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major contributor to the rising increase of osteoporosis.
- To carry Coca-Cola syrup! (the concentrate) the commercial trucks must use a hazardous Material place cards reserved for highly corrosive materials.
- The distributors of Coke have been using it to clean engines of the trucks for about 20 years!
According to 2010 figures, approximately 1.6 billion drinks are served everyday by the Coca Cola company – 78% 0f these drinks are Coke. the 1.6 billion drinks make Coca Cola one billion pounds a year in revenue. So the chances of Coke being withdrawn from our grocery shop shelves is unlikely to happen! This corporate giant has only one purpose – to make profits – at any cost.
After my Live Blood Analysis, I did some further research and discovered that Coke has a pH value of approximately 2.8, i.e. slightly less acidic than concentrated Sulphuric acid.Now the question is, would you like a glass of water? or Coke?

Today, 1st May, is International Unconditional Love Day. Whilst many of us have experienced receiving love as long as we fulfilled certain criteria, how many times have we expressed our love to someone or something else with zero conditions attached?
In order to celebrate this most wonderful opportunity to experience and express unconditional love, we’re putting on a special one-off Consciousness Revolution Show today with interfaith minister, Alison Levesley, and Deanna Stone from http://www.teenageparents.org.uk.
During this show, you will discover:
- How we create barriers to love
- How surrender brings us closer to love
- How we can prevent ourselves from feeling increasingly distant to love as we mature
- How parenting can be transformed through unconditional love
- How we can build self-esteem and confidence through love
- How love is the answer to the realisation to our true potential
Finding out that 80 acres of the Amazon Rainforest are lost every sixty seconds 24/7, has certainly left an indelible mark on my psyche. The Amazon produces 40% of Earth’s oxygen and represents the lungs of this beautiful green planet.
The cause of such devastation? In part, due to natural causes. However, a greater role is played by the masculine-energy dominated patriarchal society that has infected Earth for the past 4,000 years. Mankind has become a cancer for Earth to the point that he has sold his own soul for a few pennies. Basing his current thinking and behaviour and outdated Darwinian theory that was extrapolated out of Malthusian theory between 1850 and 1870, Mankind has seized on any opportunity for outward expansion without a thought for the consequences of the actions.
So it was with a sigh of relief that I got to hear from some of the leading thinkers and community activists offer a real, tangible system of thinking, behaving and being during the Women on Fire conference in Westminster, London this weekend. Launching their inaugural conference at the very place that the Suffragettes first met and the United Nations, it was indeed a day befitting the beginning of a powerful organisation in the making.
During the conference, Dr Elisabet Sahtouris, provided a compelling case for moving from a competitive, dog-eat-dog world that we operate from to a cooperative and collaborative modality. Although limited in time, each speaker spoke volumes on the practical transformation of Earth. This ranged from peace initiatives to organic food in urban cities to replanting the rainforests. Founder of Women on Fire, Judith Seelig, is under no illusion. The depth and degree of undertaking required to shift us to a new era requires more than dreams and aspirations. Without practical grounding of the inspirational ideas and innovations arising from the Feminine Principle, they will be nothing more than that – ideas and aspirations.
Don’t be fooled for a moment. Mother Earth will survive the untold damage caused by her children. It is the us, Her children, who may not survive the damage. As Dr Sahtouris pointed out, we are a ‘desert-creating’ species. Maybe, if enough of us take the steps necessary, humanity may be saved.
Love and gratitude,

As food nourishes the body, beauty nourishes the spirit.
And harmony is restored through the creative & caring qualities of the Feminine Principle
This is the bridge between matter and spirit.
The artists will play a significant role in shaping the future providing that they work from their true soul nature.
And with the support of the positive will of the Masculine Principle, peace will prevail on Earth.

ABOUT GINGER GILMOUR
Ginger Gilmour is an artist with a particular vision. This vision has emerged from her life experience and the influence of many great teachers. She has had a very close training in the development of her creativity with the renown painter, Cecil Collins and his wife, Elizabeth Collins. The seed of this vision grew out of the integration of her eighteen years of marriage with Pink Floyd guitarist, David Gilmour, the raising of their four children and the inner longing to express her own creativity. Now what once was a seed flowers within her life, within her paintings and within her sculptures.
To Ginger each painting, each sculpture, each environment has a special story and is a reflection of her journey. The most significant was the creation of the ‘Song of Woman’. She says, “At that time, I had forgotten my inner dance and its song of Joy! Creating this artwork opened a doorway of return to my inner being and gave me the courage to BE. Through ‘Song of Woman’ Joy has been restored and it sings within my heart each day. As a result, I am inspired to create from this melody and to Remember the Beauty that lies innate within everyone.”
Therefore for Ginger, creativity is never solely concerned with creating a form to be observed but is an interactive experience based upon the depths of one’s nature and its relationship to the world around us. She feels very strongly that we are more than what is visible~ that there lies innate within each of us such Beauty our eyes and heart has yet to Behold.
For both the artist and the viewer, her work represents a journey of return to the Joy of Living. With each sculpture she explores the question of how much form is necessary to reflect this process~how much space~how much rhythm. Primarily, her work is all about the sacred within our relationships~the relationship with ourselves, our neighbour and mother nature.
Her vision is summarised in a quote from Rumi, “Let the Beauty that we are, Be the Beauty that we do!”
Ginger will be presenting at the Feminine Consciousness Event in London in October 2011.

Since 1992, I’ve been hearing about the ensuing New World Order from a wide range of sources. Initially, I was, like most people I guess, skeptical. They sounded like a bunch of conspiracy theories that were just that – theories. Nonetheless, I have been doing my own research for and against the idea of a New World Order using both observation through my own experiences and researching the information that has been available to the public arena.
Nearly ten years on, 9/11 happened in New York followed by 7/7 in London. The information and the misinformation propagated by people in places of power was beyond astonishing. The movie ‘Zeitgeist‘ was in my mind a massive eye-opener for me. This documentary was based almost entirely on the research work carried out by Jordan Maxwell . Having been viewed over fifty million times even 2-3 years ago, Google removed the counter that monitors the number of times the site has been visited. A couple of my observations include:
- How was it that there was a airforce drill in the USA on its grandest scale on the day the World Trade Centre on the day it was bombed?
- Was it a sheer coincidence that there was a emergency services (fire, ambulance, police, hospitals) drill at the SAME underground train stations that were bombed on the SAME day as the bombing took place?
- How was it that BBC News were able to report on the collapse of Building Seven of the World Trade Centre LONG BEFORE the building started to collapse? Click here to see the news clip.
Yes, this may be old news. Nonetheless, it shows there is a pattern taking place.
The planet has entered a brand new phase in its history. The New World Order is already here. George Orwell’s prediction of a ‘Big Brother’ watching over us all is already here. When I read his book called ‘1984‘ in 1983, my schoolmates and I laughed off the thought of such a horrific society. Guess what? We now live in an Orwellian police state with Big Brother watching us in real time. And nobody seems to bat an eye lid.
The nature of the human condition is like a frog being cooked. If you place a frog in a pan of hot boiling water, it will jump out instantly. On the other hand, if you place a frog in a pan of cold water and gradually heat up the water, the frog will not move. It would die without even noticing.
Thus, Mankind has been gradually taken to boiling point without us even noticing. Those who dare speak out are seen as mad, eccentric or even on the lunatic fringe. Sadly, it seems that the warmth of the pan is far too alluring for most.
As 2012 approaches, Mankind is experiencing its darkest hour: diseases are spread to those who have no means of combatting it (SARS Flu, AIDS, Swine Flu and more); the global economy is being brought to its knees in order to make way for new currencies that aim to create greater dominance over the developing world; wars are being raged against phantom enemies; civil liberties are being discarded in the name of homeland security, countries are being invaded in order to make for new Anglo-American economic and political interests; individuals are being dumbed down through mass vaccination programs, fluoridation of the water supplies; climate change is being used as the excuse for introducing a new global taxation system that charges you for the air that you breathe. The list goes on.
Whilst on one hand, thousands are getting excited about the shift in human consciousness taking place in 2012, what they don’t realise is that, in order for us to enter a New Golden Age, we are most likely going to experience some of the darkest days to come.
However, I am an optimist. I have seen and experienced great shifts on an individual and a group basis. Only twenty-one years ago, there was a permanent threat of a Third World War for several decades. Then, in 1989, the Berlin Wall came down. Our future history was still secure.
Large corporations were bleeding dry the masses through corrupt and disgraceful practises. Then Enron and Andersons collapsed with the collapse of many less well-known corporations following suit. Earlier this year, BP performed such a massive crime through its oil spillage in the Gulf of Mexico, I am pretty confident it will eventually have to pay for its abuse of Mother Nature.
The New Universal Order cares not about the activities of individuals or corporations or governments. However, it is us who should care for the New Order. It is based on principle which gives rise to Universal, not man-made, Laws. When we get back to Principle, we are able to have VISION - one that is aligned to Principle and, consequently, Universal Laws.
If we are serious about changing the course of our FUTURE HIStory or HERstory, then let’s consider this.
How much of a change can we make to the Outer Cosmos if we make no attempts to change our Inner Cosmos?
In fact, change is no longer valid as a word. A more apt word is ‘TRANS-MORPHATION’ – to change form.
A word to the wise from Socrates: KNOW THYSELF.
How much do you know your SELF at the level of the thought, at the level of the emotion, at the level of the intuition, at the level of the body and at the level of the observer?
One thing I am assured of is that 99% of people are NOT even aware of these faculties as constituent parts of the mind.
A final word…or two. Let us rejoice in the dawn of the New Universal Order for it brings with it the first phase of a new Golden Age. Let us also be mindful that we are not quite there yet…there is much work to do at the very foundational level of our individual being.

Have you ever heard this saying?
“You can’t teach an old dog new tricks”
How true does this saying hold today? Scientific research shows that the brain has a property called ‘plasticity‘. This means that it can be remoulded and changed through every experience we have in our lives, every thought we think and every action we take. We can literally change our brains completely through new information that we learn everyday.
- What are the factors holding you back from evolving in all facets of life?
- What role the brain plays in the evolution process?
- How you can fire up your personal evolution with the most important steps

About Dr Joe Dispenza
Joe Dispenza, D.C., studied biochemistry at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J. He has a BS degree with an emphasis in Neuroscience from Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA. Dr. Dispenza also received his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree at Life University in Atlanta, Georgia, graduating magna cum laude.
Dr. Dispenza’s postgraduate training and continuing education has been in neurology; neuroscience; brain function and chemistry; cellular biology; memory formation; and aging and longevity. He is an invited member of Who’s Who in America, an honorary member of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, the recipient of a Clinical Proficiency Citation for clinical excellence in doctor-patient relationships from Life University, and a member of Pi Tau Delta – the International Chiropractic Honor Society.
Over the last 10 years, Dr. Dispenza has lectured in over 17 different countries on six continents educating people about the role and function of the human brain. He has taught thousands of people how to re-program their thinking through scientifically proven neuro-physiologic principles. As a result, this information has taught many individuals to reach their specific goals and visions by eliminating self-destructive habits. His approach, taught in a very simple method, creates a bridge between true human potential and the latest scientific theories of neuroplasticity. He explains how thinking in new ways, as well as changing beliefs, can literally rewire one’s brain. The premise of his work is founded in his total conviction that every person on this planet has within them, the latent potential of greatness and true unlimited abilities.
His first book, Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind connects the subjects of thought and consciousness with the brain, the mind, and the body. The book explores “the biology of change.” That is, when we truly change our mind, there is a physical evidence of change in the brain. As an author of several scientific articles on the close relationship between the brain and the body, Dr. Dispenza ties information together to explain the roles these functions play in physical health and disease. His latest DVD release of Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind, which was filmed in Australia, is based on the book and looks at the ways in which the human brain can be used to affect reality through the mastery of thought. He also sits as an invited editorial advisor of Explore Magazine.
In his research into spontaneous remissions, Dr. Dispenza has found similarities in people who have experienced so-called miraculous healings, showing that they have actually changed their mind, which then changed their health.
One of the scientists, researchers, and teachers featured in the award winning film, “What the BLEEP Do We Know!?,” He also has guest appearances in the theatrical directors cut, “What the BLEEP Down the Rabbit Hole” as well as the extended Quantum Edition DVD set, “What the BLEEP Down the Rabbit Hole”.
When not traveling and writing, he is busy seeing patients at his chiropractic clinic near Olympia, Washington.
Isn’t it amazing how easy it is to grab someone’s attention when scientific evidence confirms what ancient wisdom has been teaching for thousands of years?
This is what’s exactly what’s happening with the brand new scientific evidence of how kindness, compassion and gratitude impact your mental and emotional health and how it can make you happy. This body of work is being brought to the forefront by scientist, Dr David Hamilton, author of Why Kindness is Good for You.
During the next Consciousness Revolution Show on Wed 17th March, Dr Hamilton will be revealing how kindness and compassion counteract inflammation in the body, which is now believed by scientists to be at primary cause of a number of serious diseases (including heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s) and to play a role in almost all serious diseases.
You’ll be hearing precisely how certain hormones have such a dramatic effect on your emotional intelligence and what you can do to transform to create the emotions that lead to your personal evolution.
