Sacred Practices of Joy

Discover Unlimited Source of Inner Peace & Sacred Joy – Join Live Event on July 7

Become Reality bending superhuman

Access the Sacred heart of the Universe and enter the kingdom of Joy

The great mystics knew that joy is the nectar that feeds every aspect of our being, and the very essence of the spiritual life.

As the mystic Vilayat Inayat Khan noted, “‘Why aren’t you dancing with joy at this very moment?’ is the only relevant spiritual question.”

Indeed, the darker the times, the deeper the joy we need to weather them.

That’s why Andrew Harvey, one of today’s most celebrated mystic teachers, is saying that now is the time to refocus on the primacy of joy in our spiritual practices — and discover what it really takes to experience joy as a sustained baseline for our lives.

On Saturday, July 7, Andrew will show you how to bring joy to the center of your spiritual life so that you can have a rock-solid inner foundation, during The Sacred Practice of Joy: 3 Keys to Deepening Your Relationship With the Beloved.

Sacred Practices of Joy

It’s not about denying the pain around you but finding a place of real inner freedom, reverence for the Divine, and unconditional love. Your being can then become more transparent and effervescent even while you deal with very difficult situations.

During this illuminating hour, you’ll:

  • See how to approach life like a dancer, as a living expression of Divine Love
  • Access and feel the sacred heart of the universe and its overwhelming love
  • Remember that you are the beloved of the Beloved and that your life is blessed beyond your imagination
  • See how to become a “humble secret agent of the light” in the larger transformation of our time
  • Access inner peace whenever you truly want it
  • Face what is happening in the world without being consumed by it

Believe it or not, joy is the secret to effective activism — it has the power to transform us in mysterious and remarkable ways.

So if you feel called to rewire how you think about joy and, more importantly, how you engage in spiritual practices to cultivate it, you’ll receive great value from this sacred hour with one of the wisest teachers of our day!

Truth About Hypnosis

Fact or Fiction: How Reading a Book Can Solve the Hypnosis Controversy

The question of whether hypnosis is real or not has been a hot topic of discussion for over 200 years.

Exciting new research in the field of brain studies is now settling the argument once and for all!


Read a Good Book Lately: Then, Welcome to Hypnosis!

If you’ve ever lost yourself while reading a really good book, you’ve already been :::this::: close to hypnosis.

When you’re really into a book what happens?

  1. a) You feel incredibly relaxed,
  2. b) Have an amplified sense of imagination, and
  3. c) You are highly suggestible (more open to receiving and acting upon the suggestions of others, like the story the author is telling you).

Guess what? This is exactly what happens during hypnosis. It’s known as a trance state.

Truth About Hypnosis

Going Deep! Your Subconscious Mind in Action

To understand what’s going on in a trance state, we need to first define the difference between conscious and subconscious mind states.

Your conscious mind is associated with the left hemisphere of your brain. It is your “control center,” and it operates on deduction, reasoning and convention. It tells you what’s possible and not possible based on your past experiences.

On the other hand, your subconscious mind is aligned with the right side of your brain, which is responsible for creativity, freedom, and emotion.

It is more holistic, emotive, and universal. It solves Big Picture problems. It allows you to go beyond “reason,” and frees you from convention.

Researchers believe that trance states are activated when you are able to circumvent the inhibitions and walls set up by your conscious mind and begin accessing the subconscious.

More specifically, when you can “short circuit” the inhibitions and “can’ts” that your conscious mind has set up, you can do many of the things that are associated with truly therapeutic hypnosis, e.g., break addictions, overcome phobias, work through deep-seated emotional issues (psychiatric hypnotherapy), ease chronic pain (medical hypnotherapy), and even solve crimes (forensic hypnosis is fascinating field of study being explored by law enforcement agencies now).

 

Scanning Rhythms: Your Brain Can’t Lie

But, is there science to support this hypothesis?

Using electroencephalographs, or EEGs, experts studying the effects of hypnosis on the cerebral cortex have documented that activity in the left hemisphere of the cerebral cortex decreases during hypnosis. At the same time, brain activity in the right hemisphere increases.

Why is this important? It shows that hypnosis is able to pacify the conscious mind and its logical and “limiting” functions.

At the same time, it also shows that the subconscious mind – with its creativity, emotiveness, imagination – takes control.

These findings prove that something researchers long believed to be true about the effects of hypnosis are indeed accurate. 

“A Trance State Sounds Pretty Awesome: How Can You Turn It On?”

Okay, so how does hypnosis activate this trance state?

Researchers believe that hypnosis calms your left brain and conscious mind. With your logical-self taken out of the picture, you’re more able to directly connect with your subconscious mind.

In this state, you are highly suggestible. In other words, you’re able to believe, enact, and go for things that your conscious, logical mind might have kept you from believing you could do.

It allows you to free yourself from convention, from being limited based on the outcomes of your past experiences, and to experience the world and yourself in it in new and powerful ways.

For example, hypnosis can help boost your confidence, increase your brain power, aid in weight loss, increase your money-making potential, and take you to places you never believed you could go (much like that feeling you have when you’re reading a great book).

By short circuiting long-held self-beliefs and deep-seated behavioral patterns, hypnosis can often deliver real-world results that simply cannot be achieved in any other way… all because your brain allows you to believe in yourself in new and empowered ways.

Sites like Hypnosis Bootcamp offer great resources for anyone looking to learn more about the current benefits and newest applications of hypnosis.

As we are just now discovering, the world of hypnosis is able to unlock doors beyond our comprehension … but still within the reach of science.

To be sure, this is an exciting time to be alive!

Dreaming with the Bear: Discover Mind-Body-Soul Healing Through Active Dreaming, Imagination & Play

Discover healing power of Shamanic Dreaming (February 21 – Live event)

Discover Bear medicine with dream shaman Robert Moss

Did you know that your dream images hold the wisdom you need to make your life more joyous, healthful, and fulfilling — even, and sometimes especially, if they’re from nightmares?

And these images’ power goes well beyond the myth and magic associated with your dreams

World-renowned dream shaman and bestselling author Robert Moss’ extensive knowledge of dreamwork — he’s written 12 books on the subject — and his decades of teaching have revealed that all dreaming is medicine.

For Robert, re-entering a recurring nightmare with a giant Bear –– through a practice he created called Active Dreaming –– was his call to work as a dream healer. It was also the start of a lifelong connection to Bear as a guide and healer.

On Wednesday, February 21 (replay on Saturday), Robert will show you how you can learn and heal with the help of Bear medicine — and all our animal guides — during a FREE online event: Dreaming with the Bear: Discover Mind-Body-Soul Healing Through Active Dreaming, Imagination & Play.

Dreaming with the Bear: Discover Mind-Body-Soul Healing Through Active Dreaming, Imagination & Play

During this complimentary hour, you’ll:

  • Come to view the animal guides of indigenous cultures as “animal doctors” that can visit you in your dreams and guide you in healing and other pursuits
  • Discover how to claim your nightmares as sources of your own power, true initiation, or a life-supporting glimpse of a possible future you can reshape for the better
  • Expand your “internal pharmacy” of healing images by realizing that any dream image can become a source of healing and empowerment
  • Find out why your dreams are “diagnostic” — they’re able to show you your physical and emotional conditions, and even how to prevent crises
  • Discover how to break a “dream drought” — a simple and effective approach for both the prolific dreamer experiencing a dry spell as well as those who are consistently unable to remember their dreams

If you’re an avid dream explorer, Dreaming With the Bear will rekindle your belief in the magic — and powerful effects — of connecting with our “animal doctors” for guidance in our physical, emotional, and spiritual healing AND give you an insightful introduction to Bear medicine.

Everything is possible? Let Your mind make miracles

mind miracles

Ever since I was a kid, my parents always told me I’d never amount to anything. They always compared me to my older sister Dana, who painted the prettiest pictures in kindergarten, got perfect grades in high school, graduated with the highest honors from Harvard—all that jazz. I thought these comparisons would end after we both finished our studies (I graduated with average scores from a lesser-known university), but then came the career phase.

Dana got a high-flying job as a PR representative of some huge corporate firm, whereas I was working as an assistant to a demanding and unappreciative boss. It made me feel very small and useless, especially when my parents constantly praised her for all her achievements, telling me, “When are you ever going to pull your socks up?”

I tried not to let it affect me, but I have to admit, it weighed on my mind heavily. Year after year I kept it bottled up inside, without release. I was miserable, and it showed on the outside. My colleague Layne noticed that I was becoming more and more reserved each day, and I’d gotten so thin to the point where I barely had enough energy to lift a stack of documents.

Then one day at work, I found a flash drive containing something called The Instant Switch on my desk with a note from Layne. So that night I went home and read the entire thing in one sitting. By the time I was done, my face was streaming with tears and I felt a sense of peace that I never thought I would experience in my life.

It was so powerful that I teared up just by reading it that first night. The very next day, I went into work and gave Layne such a tight hug that she almost fell over in surprise. We talked about the book at lunch, and she told me it had been her lifesaver a while back when she got retrenched from her previous job. In it there were several simple exercises that she learnt to do by heart eventually, such as a short meditation for rejecting any limiting beliefs. Her retrenchment had made her feel worthless, and unable to keep her eyes open to opportunities. Things had turned around when she found The Instant Switch and managed to pull herself back up before she spiraled further into despair.

Over the next few weeks, I practiced the intriguing methods inside the book. It was filled with such wisdom, words that no one had ever said to me in my life, and it made me feel like I wasn’t alone after all. I especially liked the “tapping” technique, which was astonishingly simple, yet effective! I could feel a change in me instantly as I practiced it.

There was also an additional book that came along with The Instant Switch called Success Accelerator that taught me how to take success into my own hands. It opened my mind to how I could control my own career path and reject all the expectations that others had of me. The ideas in it were not complex, yet they had never occurred to me before, and my outlook on life has been totally transformed.

Instead of moping around at work and feeling stuck in an endless rut, I now walk into the office with my head held high, greeting my boss with enthusiasm that I haven’t felt in years. I no longer see him as overbearing and ungrateful; instead I treated him like a boss, so to speak—performing my tasks cheerfully and helping him in any way I could. And he recognized the change! I got a raise just last month because he saw how hard I was working. Before The Instant Switch came into my life, I’d been dragging my feet at work and doing the bare minimum for everything. Now my work day always starts off happy, and ends the same way, too!

The biggest hurdle I’d had to overcome was my relationship with my family. The Instant Switch helped me to move past my hurt and shame, and I began to treat my parents and sister well, despite nothing changing on their end. The only change was that I no longer let their words and actions hurt me, using the wisdom The Instant Switch had taught me. To say that it has changed my life would be a major understatement, as now I finally feel excited about my future for the first time! >> Click to Watch author’s video to learn more about.
