Are Thoughts Outside The Brain?

“Brain Cloud (2010)” Metropolitan Museum of Art, by John Baldessari.

There is something beyond intelligence, it's courage.
It takes more than intelligence to break free from our old beliefs, which we hold onto like addicts. Our beliefs are like opium, limiting us from the infinite intelligence within the Universe. The greatest minds of all time have one thing in common, they had the courage to leave their safe shores. The brain is "not" holding the information of the Universe, "something" else is. No one owns an idea or thought, it shoots into the brain as insight when we align with the wave frequency of the answer.

The world you see, before you laid eyes on it was a frequency of invisible sound and light waves. So, how did you retrieve it into your brain? The visual cortex translated the frequency as light through your pupil to bundles of nerve fibers (neurons) each of which is itself a portion of a cell.There are three types of neurons: sensory neuron,motor neuron, and interneuron.

The Human EYE —When the retinal receives light energy, it changes shape by twisting around its backbone. The altered retinal sets off a chain of chemical reactions inside the cell, which triggers an electro-chemical change in the cell membrane creating a nerve impulse.
The cells receives input from the pre-processing network, and send output to the brain via the axons of the ganglion cells.
The signals eventually end up in the occipital lobe to form an image. It processed the frequency as a pattern laying an image upside down on your retina. Your brain acts like a projector, turning the waves into particles providing the observer an image, like film. This means you never really saw anything, your brain retrieved the waves and processed the image, making it your reality, or the material world as you think you see it real. Next, I will try to simplify what I just said: not being a doctor it might be easy, because my brain is retreving the way I want to see things, as simple.

This concept can be better understood when we realize how the visual system operates.
The eye is responsible for transforming light into an electric signal by means of the cells in the retina. This electrical signal reaches the sight center in the brain. The signals create the vision you see. In other words, the sights you see was never in your brain, but waves that your brain retrieved and translated in a cross firing pattern depending on what waves you were tuned into.
Everything you ever wanted to know is available in infinite potentialities, outside your brain and available for retrieving. So, how do you retrieve what you need in life, ideas for investments, wealth, happiness, or love? Well you need to get your brain to pick up the channel the information is on. You need to catch the right waves and how you do this is the purpose of this blog.

In other words, all of our feelings and perceptions about the world (smells, visions, tastes etc.) are comprised of the same material, that is, electrical signals. Moreover, our brain is what makes these signals meaningful for us, and interprets these signals as senses of smell, taste, vision, sound or touch. It is a stunning fact that the brain, which is made of wet meat, can know which electrical signal should be interpreted as smell and which one as vision, and can convert the same material into different senses and feelings.

It's Not Our Eyes That See,
It Is Our Brain

Because of the indoctrination that we receive throughout our lives, we imagine that we see the whole world with our eyes. Eventually, we usually conclude that our eyes are the windows that open up to the world. However, science shows us that we do not see through our eyes. The millions of nerve cells inside the eyes are responsible for sending a message to the brain, as if down a cable, in order to make "seeing" happen.

Our world is magical and we have been given the power to create. "You can do all that I can do and more." -Jesus
I have been practicing bringing in a new reality by playing with the invisible frequencies. I asked my husband David to help me. We closed our eyes and imagined the waves around us turning into experiences we wanted to have. We did this three times. And it has been shocking! What we had imaged we were creating, with ease and laughter, was created within one hour.

Part of this idea is like, Law of Attraction, you have to align with the energy in the group you want to create in. (like attracts like, even in the invisible waves) We are all helping each other. In others words we need each other as electrical conduits. The thoughts in the waves, crisscross, called, "entanglement". But, you don't have to be near the person in the group, you can be on the other end of the world, or in a different time in history, but you have to get on the same channel. This means you have to start creating and draw on what is available in the area of life you are attracted to and then let go.... The only thing left is belief. You have to believe this is true, that you can tap into the invisible frequency of infinite solutions. Perfect Love, is allowing anyone to create anything, and in the end our experience is the result of our expressions of life. For me the most beautiful experience is Love, which I might conclude, everything experienced leads to.

My favorite breaking the glass-ceiling story is about a man named Roger Bannister.

He broke the four-minute mile barrier in 1954. No one thought a human could beat the time of 4 minutes to run one mile. For twenty years everyone had given up on trying to beat it, until one man believed what others could not. Roger had no evidence that it was possible, and people warned him of the dangers. His belief rested in faith alone. There is usually an underlying theme, evident in the title or otherwise, which suggests that the fact that the belief is positive is what gives it its power. Roger's goal was to be the first man to beat the 4-minute mile, and this he did. After winning he set a new personal best at a slower time and went on to become a distinguished neurologist and Master of Pembroke College, Oxford, before retiring in 2001. Interesting hu? What is also thought provoking is as soon as Roger beat the 4-minute mile; two other runners beat it two months later. Roger had changed the mind of mankind and now the 4-minute mile is standard in racing.

So, let's play...here are the game rules, only one, rule "Faith". You have heard about faith, but I want to take you deeper into it.
Faith is believing in the invisible, that there is a field of infinite possibilities and you and everyone on the planet are worthy of anything you want. All you have to do is Line-up with the group vibrating the highest in "Positive Certainty" and ask questions and see how fast they start manifesting or appearing in solid reality, each one expanding on the last. There are no limits here on earth, or in the Universe. I love this quote, “All the way to heaven is heaven,” A nun said it..:)

If we opened the brain up surgically we would not be able to see any images in it, because they are non-local. However, the brain receives electrical signals and transfers them into an images.

The brain perceives electrical signals in the form of an image, yet it has no eye, eye cells, or retina. You can pick up lower energies with your brain by hanging out with groups that are vibrating in energies of hate, doubt and fear, penetrating ideas of hate, making them your reality, or you can change your group to people who are good, loving, smart, kind, hopeful, and believe in thriving, which is the expression of life, just look at a "cell".

The world is not hurting you. You can switch your group at anytime, and this alone will shift what your mind is retrieving, ride on the coattails of your brother, until you start asking better questions. Alcoholics Anonymous is very good at this, when an alcoholic has hit bottom the members of AA say, "we will love you, until you can love yourself". This is all that is needed. If the person keeps coming back to the group he will be healed by the vibration of love in the group. In this case the group carries the faith in the invisable, for the individual. This is the technique nearly every business is run on, with leaders and staff believing in a plan, or the system of operation. This explains the power of high vibrating individual effecting all mankind, like Jesus, Buddha, Mother Teresa, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and Lennon. (just to name a few)

If you tune yourself in a particular way—like tuning to a distant radio station—you find that you can solve any puzzel.
You are not only receiving this information, but you are transmitting it as well. You are a cooperative participant in the vast and magical universe that includes all of space and time. In fact, you realize that time is now meaningless or gone. Our universe is filled with infinite consciousness, that can mix, cross fire and create anything you want in life, and solve any question you put out into the field of consciousness.

Tuning In through Resonance

How exactly might we tune into the wave of information embedded within our universe? ( encoded as vibration)
We can detect this subtle information by learning to align or resonate with it. We simply need to get “on the right wavelength.”
Or join the group that is in a vibrational alignment with what you are trying to reach.

British biologist Rupert Sheldrake has used the principle of morphic resonance to explain how species have been able to evolve in similar ways at diverse, distant locations on the planet, even when there has been no possible means of physical interaction between them. Perhaps our genetic material is merely a kind of energy receiver that picks up transmissions from the greater morphic field. Interestingly, [Sheldrake’s] theory of morphic resonance also depends upon similarity in vibration. Members of the same species, being “on the same wavelength,” are able to tap into information that pertains uniquely to them . . . [W]hile members of an entire species might be able to tune into a fairly broad spectrum of frequencies (think of Carl Jung’s notion of the collective unconscious that humans supposedly tap into), smaller, more tightly connected groups—such as members of the same family or loving couples—resonate in more focused zones of vibration; they have access to their own “private frequency.” In fact, Sheldrake goes even further and suggests that morphic fields can explain how human memory operates. He suggests that instead of being stored in our brains, memories are stored in the morphic field. Our brains then pick them up via resonance, like radios tuning to their own private stations.

That’s how holograms work—devices that can recreate a three-dimensional image from a two-dimensional one. As Michael Talbot suggests in The Holographic Universe, our three-dimensional brains and other aspects of our three-dimensional world might simply be devices for storing and accessing higher-dimensional realities. The way holographic information is picked up is by using similar vibration or resonance—in the case of a hologram, by shining a light on an image that vibrates at the same frequency as the laser that created it. Once again, it’s all about getting onto the right wavelength.

Healing Power of Similar Vibrations

In Chinese medicine, this energy field is called chi, in homeopathy it’s called the vital force, and in some esoteric teachings it is the etheric body. In energy-based medicine, the etheric body is understood to be the fundamental lattice upon which the physical body is built, and it is disturbances within this field that are the true origins of disease. Raw live foods have been known to cure every disease, by fueling the body with live enzymes, which are killed when the food is sprayed with bug-spray, heated or processed. The cure for everything is the vital live food. But, no one believes this, because it is too simple. My husband's life long asthma went away in one week, when we added a pound of organic leaves to his diet. (blended and juiced)

A great example of information outside the mind is during surgery, your body does not feel pain, it is your brain that tells you that you feel pain. If you are given drugs to block the pain message to the brain, then the part of your body being cut open feels nothing.

Here is another interesting example, I have a friend named Travis, who is fighting cancer. His leg was removed to cut out the cancer, but he can still feel his leg and he still has cramps in the phantom leg. I am trying to figure out what is happening to him, is this the brain's memory of his leg or the observer's memory of it? Is the brain, which is the projector, also the observer, the soul of the human? I think I just fell down a rabbit hole.

It appears that all information is outside the brain, say in a file of consciousness?

So, where does the doctor get his answer from in a field of infinite possibilities? From trial and error in his ability to retrieve and sort out information from a wave of intelligence? An interesting example is the story behind Penicillin.

Fleming Discovers Penicillin

Nobel Prize in medicine with Howard Walter Florey and Ernst Boris Chain) was growing colorful patches of bacteria in covered dishes in his crowded St. Mary's Hospital Medical School laboratory. He noticed that a green mold had gotten into one of the dishes. Fleming knew that mold spores traveled through the air and could easily land and grow in any dish left uncovered. In this particular dish the bacteria closest to the green mold seemed to have disappeared or dissolved. Fleming examined the mold carefully and photographed it. An associate identified the growth as Penicillium notatum.

Curious about how the bacteria in this dish were killed, Fleming took the greenish "fluff in the dish and made a mixture that his laboratory workers called "mold juice." Fleming named the juice "penicillin" and gave it to some laboratory mice. He found that the penicillin killed only the harmful bacteria and not the healthy cells in the mice. This made Fleming's "mold juice" safer than any other known bacteria-killing substances. It was an incredible discovery. If this mold mixture could be made into a drug, then someone with an infection could be cured of disease without being harmed by the cure. Unfortunately, Fleming ran into difficulties turning penicillin into a drug because he was unable to purify and concentrate the substance.

Physicist David Bohm

Physicist David Bohm, in his plasma experiments, at the Berkeley Radiation Laboratory, found that individual electrons act as part of an interconnected whole. In plasma, the gaseous electrons more or less assume the nature of a self-regulating organism, as if they were inherently intelligent. The plasma as a whole will wall out toxins. To me this is key! When we rid the world of toxins, metal and physical we rid poverty, the world should be nature flurish.

“If the concreteness of the world is but a secondary reality, and what is ‘out there’ is actually a holographic blur of frequencies, and if the brain is also a hologram and only processes some of the frequencies out of this blur, what becomes of objective reality? Put quite simply, it ceases to exist. Although we may think we are physical beings moving through a physical world, this is an illusion. We are really ‘receivers’ floating through a kaleidoscopic sea of frequency.”
— Physicist David Bohm

Even Einstein is reported to have said, “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”

... 'real' is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.”

I have heard that those that are most comfortable with the unknown are the most successful in life, but I would state that those that trust that the information outside the brain will show up when needed, live unlimited adventures... It worked for Edison, he said the solution he was looking for came in as an insight, from seemingly nowhere. And walla!... we have light.

Brain scientist Karl Lashley while he was at Yale discovered, "The whole in every part" nature of a hologram certainly seemed to explain how so much of the visual cortex could be removed without affecting the ability to perform visual tasks. If the brain was processing images by employing some kind of internal hologram, even a very small piece of the hologram could still reconstruct the whole of the way the eyes were seeing.

Conclusion: A peek into the mind of a genius: Dr. Dean Radin

I met Dr. Dean Radin in 2004. I wrote him a letter asking if he would meet me. He called me after receiving the letter and said, "Bring lunch and we'll eat in my lab and after I will take you on a tour of my experiments." My afternoon with this genius was a dream come true; all my life I wondered about the Paranormal. We had lunch in his small office in the Neoetic Science Institute. Then he took me to his lab, where he shared with me his "Gut Love Test"! He placed a husband in a bank vault (metal room) which was in his lab and the man's wife outside it. He hooked them both up to EKG machines, to test their organ responses, when the man's wife sent loving thoughts to her husband. Dr. Radin recorded them. Radin would say, "send loving thoughts to your husband now" and she would mentally send her husband love. Then Radin would say, stop and start, repeating the process over a period of time while documenting the sequence. He proved scientifically that the 'gut' reacted to love through thoughts. The EKG showed that body responds to a person sending them love.

Definition of GUT
a : bowels, entrails —usually used in plural (2) : the basic visceral or emotional part of a person
b : alimentary canal; also : part of the alimentary canal and especially the intestine or stomach
c : belly, abdomen
d : catgut

In others words we need each other as frequency conduits. The invisible universe is waves, crisscrossing with information, called, "entanglement". You don't even have to believe in what I am saying, it is happening anyway, because your brain is picking up whatever you float by randomly, unless your brain is trained.

The laws of the Universe include everyone, and like gravity, they do not discriminate based on religions, gender, or race. We need to pay attention to what invisible negative messages we are tuning into and retrieving, because everything we retrive effects our reality. If we don't like our lives we need to change the channel and take the leap of faith that within one hour our reality will shift to one we love.

Attention is the key, until mastery is established. The more you try tuning into the channel you want to be on, the better results you will get. I read a comment the creator of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg wrote. He said that when he reached a certain level of success he began to believe he could do anything, and when this happened, he could.

The Universe In A Nutshell, by Stephen Hawking

I will leave you with a comment from one of the greatest minds of our time, Stephen Hawkings: Who believes in the same theory that Richard Feynman, who received a Nobel Prize discovered, that particles travel from one location to another along every possible path through space-time. For large objects all paths but one cancel out when their contributions are combined. Only one of the infinity of paths matters as far as the motion of macroscopic objects is concerned, and this trajectory is precisely the one emerging from Newton's classical laws of motion.

"All the evidence is that God is quite a gambler. One can think of the universe as being like a giant casino, with dice being rolled or wheels being spun on every occasion. The only chance you have of winning against them is to stake all your money on a few rolls of the dice or spins of the wheel. It is the same with the universe. When the universe is big, as it is today, there are a very large number of rolls of dice, and the results average out to something one can predict. That is why classical laws work for large systems. Because the universe keeps on rolling the dice to see what happens next, it doesn't' have just a single history, as one might have thought. Instead, the universe must have every possible history, each with its own probability."-Stephen Hawking

I see this as exciting, God giving us free will to make choices, and life being a result of what we bet on, and it goes on for eternity making us more intelligent beings...:) or if there is no God, it's still amazing...our chance existence!

"What could define God [is thinking of God] as the embodiment of the laws of nature. However, this is not what most people would think of that God," Hawking told Sawyer. "They made a human-like being with whom one can have a personal relationship. When you look at the vast size of the universe and how insignificant an accidental human life is in it, that seems most impossible." -Stephen Hawking

When Sawyer asked if there was a way to reconcile religion and science, Hawking said, "There is a fundamental difference between religion, which is based on authority, [and] science, which is based on observation and reason."-Stephen Hawking

Sneak-A-Peek Below!
My first stop was to The World Sound Healing Conference in San Francisco. I wanted to understand the science of frequencies, especially if everything in the universe was vibrating to their own unique song! I waited in the large conference room to hear Dr. Susan Yale's lecture on the Harmonic Oscillator. The room went dark and three pyramids projected on a large movie screen.

"You can hear the sound of "nature" between the Pyramids of Giza," Dr. Yale said, pausing, "it's a perfect F Sharp." No one moved. She spoke slowly, "If you knew there was a place in the world where you could hear God, would you go?" I always wanted to swim in the Nile! ~ from my Memoir, (click link—"From Hollywood to God"  Kelly Granite Enck on Amazon books and Kindle.

Is Hell in the Bible a Real Place? | The Origins of Hell

By Kelly Granite Enck
The drawing above is from "The Book of the Dead" in Egypt and it predates the Holy Bible. It's interesting because the origins of Hell are the same. But, it's a nice hell! :) The soul goes through a fire for purification. I have seen the Egyptian tombs with my own eyes, said to be 5,000 years old. And all of the Egypt  painting are beautiful! They showed no form of punishment in any of their hieroglyphics.
"If God Forgives Everything, Why is there a Hell?" 

Dr. David R. Hawkins, M.D., PhD has a brilliant quote, "Guilt is a trick of the ego, it says,..woo is me." Terror in any form teaches a fictional state. "HELL" is a very real place, but only in the mind. If you believe in Hell, you make it real. I have good news, "Hell" is entirely fictional. My journey began at Bible College, where I studied the gospel religiously. I will present the evidence and you can decide. Remember, what Paul wrote, Test Everything. Hold onto what is good. (1 Thessalonians 5:21)  

The Gallop poll states that "SNAKES" hold the number one spot in human fears. The Gallop poll (Survey # GO 133064) has "SNAKES" holding the number one spot in human fears, over the fear of: public speaking, heights, being closed into small spaces, needles, getting shots, mice, flying on an airplane, dogs, thunder and lightening, crowds, going to the doctor and the dark. In our collective consciousness and even lying in our subconscious, is the idea of Satan, represented as the snake.
Let's take a deeper look into mankind's fears, and where they stem from.

Let's start with the Bible, chapter 3 of  GENESIS: The Fall of Man. "The Serpent, "slyer than every beast of the field," tempts the woman to eat from the Tree of Knowledge, telling her that it will make her more like God, and that it will not lead to death. After some thought, the woman decides to take from the tree and eat it. She then gives the fruit to the man, who eats also, "and the eyes of the two of them were opened." Aware now of their nakedness, they make coverings of fig leaves, and hide from the sight of God. God asks them what they have done, and man and woman defer responsibility. The man blames the woman for giving him the fruit, but implies a sentiment that God is also at fault for making the woman in the first place ("The woman Thou gavest to be with me, she gave me the fruit of the tree, and I ate"), while the woman blames the serpent for seducing her to disobedience ("The serpent beguiled me and I ate"). God curses the serpent "above all animals," making it lick dust and go on its belly all its days and to be an enemy of the human race. God then passes judgment for the disobedience of the man and woman, condemning the man to a life of toil and the woman to create new life through painful childbirth, and banishes them from the Garden. The woman is given the name Eve (Heb. hawwah) "because she was the mother of all living [Heb. hay]," and Adam receives his name when the text drops the definite article from the word for "the man," changing "ha-adam" to "Adam". Eve/woman is also established as subordinate to Adam/man, ending the unity between the sexes. God then posts two cherubim, with flaming swords, at the entrance to the Garden of Eden in order to block the way to the Tree of Life, "lest he put out his hand .. and eat, and live forever."

In other religions, such as Judaism, Islam, and Gnosticism stories about Jesus, written at the same time as the scriptures chosen for the making of the Bible), the term "The Fall" is not recognized and there are varying interpretations of the Eden narrative are presented. Storytellers twisted the tale of Ningishzida, the Mesopotamian god of the underworld into the story of Adam and Eve. These snake tales crossed cultures, like the Asian nagas, the serpent was an earth spirit, and a patron of the trees, hundreds of years before the Tanakh, what we call the Old Testament. 

The Tanakh was compiled by 450 BCE. The original fable of the snake and the tree of life portrays the snake as good. The snake represented the Kundalini life force in the Asian/Indian cultures and the symbol of 'eternal life' in Egyptian history. You will even find the snake mentioned in the first written language, the Vedas, viewed as generous, humble, and heroic. And in the South Asian culture the serpent was a symbol of playfulness and caution.

In 2007 a Poll recorded that 3 in 10 Americans take the Bible literally, which means they believe in Satan. Biblical scriptures translates Satan as the "angel of light," whom was once in heaven worshipping God. When the beautiful angel became tired of worshipping God for eternity, God kicked him out of heaven. Now, Satan is pissed off and down here on earth ruling it. Whomever dreamed this translation up has never sailed the icy strait, witnessed the aurora- borealis or heard the beautiful songs of whales, like I have.

I nearly fell off my chair in my Pauline Epistles while I was attending Bible College. My Professor announced to our class that Satan was ruling the Earth! And he went on to say that it will not be until after the 1,000 year Millennium, during which Satan and Arch Angel Michael will fight till death, that Jesus will take the throne again. When Satan is defeated God will recreate, the New Earth, which is according to the Bible a large Jerusalem. Those that don't believe in this are said, to spend "Eternity" in the lake of fire. Interesting, on so many evil levels. But, this is the literalistic translation of the Bible. If you are like me, this was not your idea of Heaven right? :)

Origins of the Word HELL
*halja, meaning “one who covers up or hides something” and was used derisively for those who attempted to be something other than what they were in life: beggars pretended to be kings, the illiterate masqueraded as priests and teachers.  The first use of the word “Hell” in the contemporary Christian context occurred in Iceland in the eighth century. Seven hundred years after Jesus time.

“Hell” has no Judeo-Christian origin.  Self-styled hate-mongers from the emerging church of Constantine through the dark days of Martin Luther and into the blindness of Bradlee Dean and Michele Bachman, Hell has become a concept that is more in keeping with the word Gehenna (Greek γέεννα), Gehinnom (Hebrew: גהנום/גהנם which is Aramaic in origin.  It refers to one of two valleys where apostate Israelites and followers of various Ba’als (a word that originally was used for Yah/Yahweh and actually means “husband” and “lord” and Canaanite gods.  

The valley is found in Joshua 15:8, 18:16. When ancient (Biblical) Hebrews thought of the fate of those who died, they did not consider either heaven nor hell.  Instead, the deceased descended into Sheol: שְׁאוֹל It meant (and translates as) “a pit” or a “grave”. It was darkness and not a place nor an afterlife.  There was no belief that the dead would be “restored” or “come back to life” or be “born again.”  As it appears in Psalm 6:4–5 “Turn, O LORD, deliver my life; save me for the sake of your steadfast love. For in death there is no remembrance of you; in Sheol who will give you praise?”  Sheol is a place of nothingness: Through a series of bad translations and redactions Gehenna is transmogrified in both Rabbinical Jewish and Early Christian writing as a destination of the wicked–in keeping with the evolving underworld of the god Hades in ancient Greek theology. The Hebrews do not make Gehenna a purgatory until the days of the Mishnah: in Kiddushin 4.14, Avot 1.5; 5.19, 20, Tosefta t. Bereshith 6.15, and Babylonian Talmud b.Rosh Hashanah 16b:7a; b. Bereshith 28b. It is an invention that has no ancient foundation. (Redaction is a form of editing in which multiple source texts are combined (redacted) and subjected to minor alteration to make them into a single work.)

Jesus uses the word Gehenna 11 times to describe the opposite to life in the Kingdom of God: βασιλεία τοῦ θεοῦ (Mark 9:43-48).

Gehenna (Greek γέεννα), Gehinnom (Rabbinical Hebrew: גהנום/גהנם) and Yiddish Gehinnam, are terms derived from a place outside ancient Jerusalem known in the Hebrew Bible as the Valley of the Son of Hinnom (Hebrew: גֵיא בֶן־הִנֹּם or גיא בן-הינום); one of the two principal valleys surrounding the Old City.
In the Hebrew Bible, the site was initially where apostate Israelites and followers of various Ba'als and Caananite gods, including Moloch, sacrificed their children by fire (2 Chr. 28:3, 33:6; Jer. 7:31, 19:2-6). In Jewish, Christian and Islamic scripture, Gehenna is a destination of the wicked. This is different from the more neutral Sheol/Hades, the abode of the dead, though the King James version of the Bible translates both with the Anglo-Saxon word Hell. 
Gehenna is derived from the Hebrew ge hinnom or the "Valley of Hinnom!
Photo of the "Hell" in the Bible, today! :)
The “Kingdom” is within people (Luke 17:20-21), it is not a physical or extra-terrestrial place.  It follows the Hebrew: מלכות השמים‎, Malkuth meaning a cleansing of the mind (spiritual rebirth) and a willingness to tolerate and emotionally support–not destroy–others.  It was Cyrus king of Persia who embellished this thought by saying: ” ‘The Lord, the gods of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in Judah (a line plagiarized in 2 Chronicles 36:23).  The “Lord” being discussed was neither Yahweh nor Jesus, but a universal aspect of love that would occur once people stopped judging one another (Matthew 7:1 and Acts 10:24; cp.

Was Eve really made from Adam's rib?
The mind believes anything it hears seven times, which helps when memorizing a phone number. You may have heard seven times that hell exists, and that Satan is a force against you by those you trusted as a child or even as an adult, and your mind may have made this true. I was talking to a friend yesterday who believes the Bible is factual, she said, We (us women) were made from Adam's rib.
"Does this mean that man has one less rib, than a woman?" I asked her.
"yes," she answered. I then googled the number of ribs for a man and woman in front of her.
I turned my computer around and showed her that we have the same number of ribs, 12.
She was shocked! I smiled then said, our minds believe anything told to us seven times.
"Have you taken everything in the Bible as fact without doing your own homework." 
"yes" she answered, then quoted me this Scripture: "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." (2 Timothy 3:16)"Did you know that Biblical scholars are debating over 1 and 2 Timothy. Many believe they were not written by Apostel Paul but, well after his death." Could they have been written to manipulate people? Take a good look at 1 and 2 Timothy, these chapters teach that women are to be silenced, submissive to men, and the Scriptures is packed with devil threats. Unlike Galatians 3:28, which states, "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."

Dr. Bart Ehrman renowned New Testament expert, states that sophisticated computer-generated statistical tools have demonstrated that Paul did not write the Pastoral letters—1 and 2 Timothy and Titus. The words hundreds of words analyzed do not match any of Paul's undisputed Epistles. These letters seemed to have been written to manipulate, in order for the men to have women remain submissive to them. The teachings by Jesus were radical for the time, telling women they could teach the world of God and they were free to become Apostles. See my blog Women According to Jesus.
What is the real truth about our slithering friends? Do you know why snakes are on the medical caduceus as our symbol for Medicine? The Greeks witnessed snakes bringing healing herbs to each other. Asclepius, the son of Apollo and Koronis, was the first physician in Greek mythology. His worshipers included Hippocrates, the pioneer of Western medicine. Asclepius' first tutors were snakes' he watched them bring helix herbs to each other. This may explain why nonpoisonous snakes were allowed to slider around on the floors of ancient Greek hospitals (a practice since discourage by the AMA). It may also explain how the Rod of Asclepius, entwined by a single serpent, became the symbol of medicine. And there's a more ambiguous link between snakes and medicine: The earliest pharmaceuticals, which included venom, could be lifesaving or lethal depending on dosage (and luck). A serpent thus provided a good allegory for the medical profession, with its mixed success rate.
I discovered the most fascinating thing in a magazine article today, titled, "Snake on the Brain", by Jeff Greenwald. "The strangest nod to serpents that I've come across, in Western spirituality at least is found in gematria, a form of Hebrew writing inspired by Greek geometry. In this mystical system of Jewish wisdom, each Hebrew letter is assigned a number. A common example is chai, which in Hebrew means "life" 9 as in l'chaim, "to life). The two letters that make up the word have a combined value of 18, a highly auspicious number in Jewish tradition. Every word in Hebrew thus has an occult numerical value-and a strong (not to mention divine) relationship with words of identical values. It turns out that the numerical value of the word for "serpent" is 358; identical to the value for the word "messiah." There's even a biblical root to this bit of wordplay. In one of the more controversial passages in the Gospels (John 3:14-16), Jesus himself is compared to a bronze serpent that Moses displayed on a pole during the Exodus to cure victims of snake bite: "Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life."" -Greenwald. If we do our own research the fear we have of our slithery friends, the snakes, will go away. "The Gallup poll proves one thing clearly, we have a surprising amount of control over our fears, even primal fears, conditioned by evolution and genetics and the mis-understanding of our history."-Greenwald.

Sneak-A-Peek Below!
My first stop was to The World Sound Healing Conference in San Francisco. I wanted to understand the science of frequencies, especially if everything in the universe was vibrating to their own unique song!

I waited in the large conference room to hear Dr. Susan Yale's lecture on the Quantum Harmonic Oscillator.

The room went black and three pyramids projected on a movie screen.
"You can hear the sound of "nature" between the Pyramids of Giza," Dr. Yale said, pausing, "it's a perfect F Sharp."

No one moved. She spoke slowly, "If you knew there was a place in the world where you could hear God, would you go?"

I always wanted to sleep on the Nile!"
