Opening Words (view on a separate page) (more articles about guidance)
Greetings, my dear friends.
I have a small confession to make. Yesterday, I thought about taking a hiatus from Project X Newsletter, approximately until the beginning of summer (mostly because of my academic studies - which, by the way, I enjoy tremendously). I've estimated the number of articles I'm receiving and saw that it is not enough to make a regular, once in two-three weeks, newsletter.
That was yesterday. Today I sat down to review my incoming e-mail, and - voila! - in two hours I had a brand new edition of the newsletter, the same one you are about to read!
This is an interesting phenomenon I've noticed about me, and I hope that, by becoming conscious to it, it won't go away. There is a saying in "Fight Club" movie (highly recommended), that goes, "It's only when you give up on everything, you are free to do anything you want." Something similar happens to me, at least as it pertains to the first part of the quoted phrase. Each time I, in my mind, inadvertently give up on something, saying that it won't work, experiencing the defeat, or the loss, or the end on the inner plane - it actually manifests in the opposite fashion in the outside world!
There is another reason I'm sharing this small thing with you. Most of the articles of today's edition, somehow, despite being sent by several unrelated authors, have a mutual topic, a common thread. How is it possible? How is it, the moment I decide to give up on the newsletter, I receive an influx of fresh articles, plus a renewed inspiration to keep this initiative of mine still going?!
Could it be that there are connections, unseen by microscopes, something more subtle that anything we can physically measure? Could there be... a conscious Universe? Could each one of us have... a Higher Self?
Today's issue hopes to answer such questions - or, at least, propose some possible direction for the answers.
Before we begin - a word from Lady Isis:
Remember the A, B, C's of Life...
P = Your perception of any given situation which will equal
Change your perception and everything changes.

Personal Encounters With Time Travelers
(c) 2002 Mark Andrews
It was a cold and rainy Monday night: April 17, 1978. At just past 7
PM, I got a phone call from George Biro. He was the 14 years old son of
my friends, Bob and Marge Biro.
But for me, this was only the beginning of a most bizarre odyssey.
The Power of Visualization (view on a separate page) (more articles about guidance)
Visualization is one of the oldest methods of healing. It was used by the ancient Egyptians and later passed on to the ancient Greeks. There were actual healing temples built where people would travel for miles to come and be healed of all manner of illness. In the ancient Temple of Epidaurus records of case histories were uncovered by archaeologists.
Visualization can be used for creating anything you desire. All you need to do is set aside a time for relaxation, or meditation, then conjure up a mental image of a desired goal or result. Do this for five minutes to half an hour at least once a day, more often if time allows. Create whatever you envision as a consistent image, this can be a literal or symbolic image, that represents the goal or result you desire. To empower this visualization even further draw or paint a picture of this goal or result.
Thoughts have a vibrational level, and energy level that can cause changes not only in your outer world, but the inner and physical as well, thereby changing and creating healthy cells where now there may be diseased, unhealthy cells. The power of thought and visualization is what causes the body to age. Think about that for a minute. What is it you THINK about with each passing birthday? What is it you see each time you look in the mirror? Now you may not even realize this consciously, but your subconscious has been programmed to think; as the years pass the body grows older and becomes as grandma or grandpa - old, grey, wrinkled and decrepit. Those who go through life never thinking about growing older are the ones you see that can be ninety-years old and look sixty, or forty-years old and look twenty-five, and so forth. "Whatever a man thinketh - so he is," someone said something similar to that before, and so true it is.
Mary Baker Eddy, founder of Christian Science, once wrote: "To prevent disease or to cure it, the power of Truth, of Divine Spirit, must break the dream of the material senses. To heal by argument, find the type of the ailment, get its name, and array your mental plea against the physical. Argue at first mentally, not audibly, that the patient has no disease, and conform the argument so as to destroy the evidence of the disease. Mentally insist that harmony is the fact, and that sickness is a temporal dream. Realize the presence of health and the fact of harmonious being, until the body corresponds with the normal conditions of health and harmony."
Psychokinesis is another use of mind over matter. Mankind has only touched the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the power of the mind. Edgar Cayce, was one of the most famous clairvoyants who used visualization; he would psychically SEE the patient and relate what it was he was visualizing - then his diagnosis would be startlingly accurate. ESP is significantly enhanced if you can free your mind of all distractions and focus your entire attention on the mental images that come spontaneously from the unconscious. The shaman uses visualization in their role as seer to mediate between the spiritual and material world, to soul travel to an other's soul in order to heal their patient; when they return the patient suffering is alleviated and a healing takes place.
Visualization is using a transference of consciousness, as all is consciousness you transfer positive consciousness to where negative consciousness resides to obtain a healing, to release a fear, to create that which you desire as a positive outcome. Now this works in reverse also, so you must always be aware of what it is you are visualizing.
Think prosperity, visualize prosperity and you will prosper. Think poor, visualize poor and you will be poor. It works just like prayer and the saying; "Be careful what you pray for - you just might get it!" Well, be careful what you mentally conjure up, because if you focus on it long enough you darn well will get it. How do you think some of the oldest religions in the world ever worked, and still work today? I am speaking of such things as witchcraft and voodoo. Those who practice it, visualizes the outcome of the spell, or healing, or whatever. Of course when they use these powers of visualization for ill towards another, then it can and will reverberate right back on them. For what you sow you shall reap!
When you visualize seek harmony with the world, and with your Self. Envision yourselves as benevolent, worthwhile beings who are Masters in the making, who are Divine beings at One with God and your fellowman, One with All That Is, who has a purpose and a place in the Omniverse where all hopes and dreams can be fulfilled.
Creation by visualization follows the Universal Law of Magic which states: "The Law of Magic is that law which creates change. Physical change comes about through the change in consciousness. Consciousness changes in response to anticipation. Anticipation results from imagery and preparation, fears and desires, based on fallacies or facts. Preparation for change, changes consciousness, which results in physical change. The quality and quantity of description and imagery, the intensity and consistency of attitudes and actions, the collective and disruptive energies of others, all work together to influence the direction and course of the change. Everyone to some degree, for good or for ill, is both victim and master of the Law of Magic. The Law of Magic is an extension of the Law of Unity."
If you can see it in your mind's eye - you will have it!
The Seven Principles of Huna (view on a separate page) (more articles about guidance)
From: Martha McKinney - through Circle of Light Newsletter
This life of ours is a dream... our dream. A dream we share with other people, with the earth. A dream we also share with ourselves, alone. This dream of our experiences, this reality as we call it, comes from inside, comes from our thoughts, our ideas, our beliefs, our fears, our desires, our angers, and our pleasures. All the ways we think produce this experience of ours. From night comes day. From thought comes reality. If we would change this reality, says this knowledge, then we must change ourselves. It is wasted time, wasted energy to change the outer world alone. To truly change the outer world, we must first go within and find that place which is creating the outer world, and change that... change that fear to hope, anger to love, change that belief in a lack to a belief in abundance. This is eke'... working within to create the outer. This is the most important idea. All the following ideas come from this first one.
Each one of us is connected... mind and body, spirit and man, earth and man, plants and animals, clouds and sky and ocean. We are all connected together. Kala says that separation is an illusion, but that because we create our own reality with our thoughts, we sometimes create a sense, a belief, in our own separateness. As we believe we are separate, we create sickness. When we create a sense of separateness, in our thoughts and our feelings, to that degree there is sickness in our relationships. Kala says that there is really underneath this sense of separation, a real oneness, a connection. If we can get rid of those thoughts, feelings, and acts of separation then that oneness comes together. And as this connection is made, we become healthy again, with ourselves, with others around us, with the earth... this is kala. It is a way of creating that connection, of freeing up.
There is a gesture here in the islands, which means "hang loose." Which is to say when you get uptight, you create tension. When you create tension, you create separation. So "hang loose." When you relax and flow with them, you are healthier, relationships are better and very interestingly, when you are relaxed and flowing with things it is easier to change them. Kala is not saying that you must accept things the way they are. It says that when you relax with them you can change them easier.
Wherever there is a flow of energy and attention, events are created. Wherever you direct your attention and keep it directed in that way, to an object or to an idea, then the flow of energy continues and according to the nature of your thoughts that is the return flow you receive. So if you are putting out, thinking out positive thoughts about the world around you, positive energy flows back. When you are putting out and thinking out negative thoughts about the world around you then negative energy flows back and negative results come into your life. If you are thinking out thoughts of abundance and keeping that consistently, not just once in a while, but thinking that way, then abundance flows into your life. If you are thinking thoughts of happiness and joy, consistently, then to that degree happiness and joy come into your life. When you focus on fear and anger, then you have fear and anger in your life. You have the ability , the wonderful skill, says this knowledge, to decide how you are going to focus your thoughts, your energy, your attention and thereby change what is flowing back into your life. So all of these ideas, starting from that first one, are telling you how to make these changes from within that will create the changes outside.
This moment, right here. There is no power in the past. There is no power in the future. The past has no power over you. You are the one who has power right in this moment to change what you think and the effects of the past fail to hold you. You don't walk forward in life with any burden of the past. You walk forward in life with thoughts and ideas about yourself and about the past. It is those ideas in every given moment that determine your reality. If you have beauty in your life, the way we have beauty in these islands, then you are creating this beauty now. Says, this idea that you are increasing this beauty by appreciating it now. If you stop appreciating this beauty, if you start loosing your sense of beauty, then so will the world around you loose its beauty. As we have seen happens some places on this earth of ours. The more you appreciate, take pleasure in the moment, the more you strengthen that, the more you increase that. So it is not what you have been but what you are that makes what you have in any given moment. The future as well does not lie waiting in front of you to move forward and bump into it. It is created in every present moment by the the seeds of thought you plant now. Sometimes we have weeds from the past, but we can pull those up and plant new seeds, and create a new future. So says this knowledge. As we go along, new seeds are planted, and if we do not like what these seeds have produced then at any time we can pull them up and plant new seeds. So it is every moment that we have our power and there is power in everything else too.
Deeper in the word is the meaning of love, which is 'to be happy with,' to be happy with something or someone. This is the great discovery, this most marvelous secret of this knowledge which was discovered by these people. That to love is to be happy with to the degree that you are happy with yourself, with people, with the world around you, you are in love and love is being expressed. But to the degree that you are criticizing, to the degree that you are angered , not pleased with, unhappy with things and people around you, you diminish love. So love has nothing to do with pain. Love has nothing to do with hurting people or being hurt. Love is the happiness, the joy, the pleasure in any relationship, because to love is to be happy with.
The concept of mana is that there is one source of power, and that source flows through each one of us. Not only us as human beings but through the earth, through every stone, through every tree, through every cloud. Mana is the inner power that gives each thing it's own creativity. Mana is the power of the waves of the sea to come up and kiss the shore. Mana is the power of the wind to carry the clouds, and blow across the lands and the oceans. Mana is the power of a stone to be strong and stable. Mana is the power of human beings to be creative, in their own unique way. Mana is that source of power within each person within each thing in this universe and most important comes the idea, the further idea, that true power comes from within. That there is no power outside of you that has any power over you. That all the power for your existence comes from that source through you. That whenever we think anything has power over us, whether it is nature, another person, whatever we believe has more power over our lives than we do then all we are doing, according to this knowledge, is diminishing our own power. Holding it back, holding it down and in a very strange way pretending not to have the power we really have. Mana, it is a power to do something, not a power over... it is this power within each one of us, each thing, to be itself to its utmost potential. Now, the more we allow ourselves to experience this power, to feel it, to use it, to claim it, then we have that power to make ourselves reach our highest potential.
There is always another way to do anything. That we are never really stuck in one way... no one truth. There is no one method, technique, one kind of medicine, one way to be happy, one person you can be happy with. There are many ways to achieve your goals, to enjoy life... to fulfill it. This is pono. There is always another way. The idea continues. Plans are not sacred. Your purpose might be sacred, but the way you achieve that purpose is not. If you want to achieve a given purpose, however, you must use the means suitable to that purpose. If you want to create peace, then you must use peaceful means, or you will never get peace. From violence you will only get more violence. Until people tire of violence, and get together and use peaceful means to create peace. If you start out with peace, with a love of peace in your heart, says this knowledge, you will move toward peace in your life. A very, very practical truth this one is. A practical way of living with yourself and with other people...
These are the principles of this knowledge, practiced by the kapua this
knowledge called kahuna. This knowledge that comes from these islands and
others like it in the pacific. Here is wisdom. If you would share this,
if you would use this. Take any part of it you like and apply and use it
in your own life.
The 7 Secrets To Knowing Your Higher Self (view on a separate page) (more articles about guidance)
Each of us is connected with the Divine. The Higher Self within us far transcends the understanding of our conscious minds. This is the power that all the great geniuses and teachers of history have accessed. It is also the place of magic and miracle in our lives. Here are the seven key steps to contact it:
1. Belief & Expectation: Transform Your World View!
The first step is to BELIEVE that you have a Higher Self to establish communication with! Then EXPECT every day that this communication will improve as you focus diligently on inner growth. Without these two essential pre-requisites, it is hard to achieve anything at all in life, even on the physical level. For inner growth, these two qualities are essential. So set a GOAL to achieve contact with the Higher Self, review that goal daily, and maintain your purpose with determination until success is yours.
We are brought up with a primarily materialistic world view that neglects the role of Spirit. To establish close contact with spiritual realms, we need to have our entire being - conscious and subconscious - congruent with our goal. In any major activity/goal, you have to establish the rules of the game and the way it is played. Contacting your Higher Self is the same. Therefore, seek out writings and teachers that expand your understanding of the universe as fundamentally being a realm of Consciousness and Mind.
2. Solitude & Meditation
Make regular time for yourself where you can be totally alone. A quiet place is preferable. Just sit quietly with no expectations. Do NOTHING. This may feel very uncomfortable and strange in the beginning. Persist. You give time and space for the inner voice to make itself heard. It will do so either during that quiet time, or else during the events of the day. A synchronistic event will occur; someone will tell you exactly what you need to hear; you will get a sudden flash of insight. All the great geniuses of history have found times of regular solitude and silence for themselves. You should too.
In meditation, you work to discipline your mind and silence the internal chatter that constantly fill it. You create a pure vessel for the Higher Self to fill. Following your breath is an excellent meditation discipline, as is concentrating upon a candle flame. Or visualize a golden ball of light in your Solar Plexus that fills your whole body with energy and healing. There are many practices that you can study and use.
Record your feelings, emotions, dreams and insights every day in a journal. This will help you to come into closer contact with your inner intuitive depths. You can ask the Higher Self questions here, and then later on record whatever insights/answers you receive. If you do this regularly with belief and expectation, you WILL receive the answers you need.
4. Inner Dialogue
Conduct a regular inner dialogue with your Higher Self. For the next 40 days, decide to keep in contact throughout the day. Say to your Higher Self, "I know you are there and I want to get to know you and pay attention to you. Please begin to speak to me and guide my life." Don't worry if this dialogue is entirely one-way to begin with. Remember that you have been out of touch for decades. It takes a while to clear the cobwebs! Persist with this inner dialogue as if talking to a friend - chatting, asking questions, sharing your hopes - and begin to listen for answers. They will come.
5. Life Lessons
Look upon life as a Mystery School. Believe that the whole of your life - events, situations and people - has been structured PRECISELY in order to teach you exactly what you need to know right now. Approach life as if the whole of creation is conspiring to do you good! Whenever something happens in your life, for good or ill, ask yourself what the lesson is for you. Even unpleasant people/situations have been deliberately placed there as a challenge to help you grow. As you begin to view life as a drama in which you are play the starring role, the role of the Higher Self will become increasingly evident in your life. Record your findings in your journal.
Expect your Higher Self to speak to you in dreams. Before going to sleep, do some stretching and bending to relax your body completely. Ask your Higher Self a question and expect an answer. When you wake up, recall whatever you can of your dream and write it down in your journal. If you are not used to remembering dreams, this will take time and persistence. However, with patience, you will begin to recall your dreams AND receive answers from your Higher Self.
Focus upon living more and more in the present, on the NOW. When you are eating, be aware that you are eating. When you walk, know that you are walking. The only real moment is now - the past is gone forever and the future has yet to be. Therefore, work to clear your mind of concerns, illusions and extrapolations. Clear the mental clutter from the mind and create space for the Higher Self to fill.
Patience Is The Catalyst To Progress!
Remember, you may have spent your entire life out of touch with Source. Therefore, it takes time to learn how to re-establish contact. Anything worth doing takes time and practice. Be vigilant and practice these seven steps every day, and you will receive the answers you need. Remember: The Higher Self WANTS to be in contact. In fact, to even speak of it as someone apart from you is contradictory. The Higher Self IS you! The real you. So get in touch with YOU!

One only - Universal Law (view on a separate page) (more articles about guidance)
How often has this thought, (or one like it), crossed your mind, "Why do certain things exist and persist, even if they are undesirable and not much wanted by anyone?"
The other day, this very question crossed my mind again. After gazing at my navel for a while, (my metaphor for cogitating), I reached a conclusion.
"Everything that exists and persists does so because we acknowledge existence of it. Ignored things fade and vanish."
I know this observation seems simplistic on the surface, but when one considers the power and magic in being able to create and sustain something or make it vanish, that is a powerful trick.
How many things today have simply vanished because they are no longer acknowledged by the general population? Even enormous, (for the times), things have simply vanished even though for a time they represented the most important thing to humans at that time. Bringing something into existence is just as easy, it simply requires acknowledgement of its existence by someone somewhere and agreement by others that it is so.
One of the ramifications of this simple observation is that being in opposition to something undesirable... in fact, SUPPORTS its existence! Exactly the opposite effect to what one intends or desires. I think this example of irony may be the crux of the concept. In any event the observation gave rise to a diary entry, one I would like to share.
Reference "Brain Wave Diary" (02/02/02)
One only - Universal Law.
"Space allows ALL to exist... for ALL needs somewhere to be."
Change prevents certainty of anything else.
Other "facts" are snapshots of personal perspective and are true only once... for that individual for there and then. Un-pursued or ignored perspectives remain undiscovered or simply vanish. What we pursue is what we manifest... into something we know as reality. Things exist simply because we acknowledge them. Therefore without life perceiving things, there is virtually nothing.
Creation is yours to perform within the miraculous gifted space.
This endless space is dedicated for your reality to manifest within, a changing place for all possibility. Imagine a world where only desirable things receive acknowledgement. Desirable IS all in the mind. When sufficient minds agree on desirable, desirability is granted.
This is the reality of our current state and our hope for changing reality.
How difficult is it NOT to pursue the undesirable? Very! Our nature is predisposed to oppose.
Once we resist this temptation we are able to move forward with desirable earth changes and changes for ourselves.
In appreciation for my many virtual friends, there is a fun metaphysical story available for reading at my site, it may be fun for some and help pass away some time with troubles left far behind. It is a first draft so is... as is.
It is dedicated to the wonder of wondering and those that would wonder so...
Why not join Wendy, Marcus, Mr. Dross and the intrepid Vig as they unwittingly set about concluding the prophecy of the Mayan calendar. Who would have guessed Luq Doe, with a mind of her own would become the catalyst for the conclusion. Visit strange places, awe at examples of nature and her unfathomable approaches, peek into little known cultures... Yes, this adventure story it is simply for fun and you may enjoy it.
Her life's memories were taken tragically in a most bizarre twist of fate. Comatose for seven years she languished with undetermined brain damage. No one of kin claimed this waif as theirs and she languished alone in a strange and foreign land totally dependent on strangers' benevolence and her finders good will.
She truly was in ONE'S hands.
How could someone of such miserable circumstance become earth's most treasured link?
Meaning well, the children read to Luq while she lay in coma. Seven solid years of fairy tales and ancient mystery replaced lost memory as she slumbered - with fairy tale reality.
A mind like no other, no other mind would do. There is a yellow brick road and an old woman in a shoe. To save a world takes way more than we could ever know, for Luq it was so simple to sing and save the show. Twenty twelve was coming fast and risk there was aplenty, but Luq and crew held fast their way and whisked us all to safety.
From a nursery rhyme dated 2045 written by an unknown but grateful Luq fan... It should be noted all written learning materials beyond 2012 took the form of nursery rhymes - by popular choice of the world population...
Leave trouble behind and proceed to the ~(HOLO-SPHERE)~
