Chasing God

I have been on a spiritual journey for many years, not because I wanted to be holy or spiritual but because I recognized in my twenties that the answers to all my problems laid in the wisdom of the east. Christianity was, to me filled with fear and judgement, very limited in its understanding of the universe and consciousness.

It was only after I smoked some weed that my mind was released and I began to see a wider, deeper state of reality. I began reading every Buddhist and Indian philosophy book I could get my hands on. Here was an exciting world of endless possibilities. Here were universes within universes. Gods and Goddesses, masters that were fun, loving, intelligent, kind and generous with their wisdom and blessings. People who where living a magical world of miracles and everyday common sense.

God was anything you wanted Her to be, light, consciousness, Presence, beingness, bliss, Oneness and most of all love. The rules where more like guidelines helping you along the journey to become awakened, fully enlightened. The East, over thousands of years had created a road map on how to be happy and fully conscious in light and love. Their psychology was advanced with detail instructions on how to reach peace, and I loved candle[1]it all.

But there was one problem that kept showing up, I had difficulty really understanding the rituals that where meant to awaken the God within and gain His grace.

In one of my trips to India I realised that the Indians see God, as there for them, not the other way around. God is supposed to help them in family, wealth creation, health and life in general. They have no problem with demanding from God what they need.

At the same time they do all they can to entice God to show up, hence all the elaborate ceremonies to draw Him to them. The crazy thing is that it works. Doing one of these 8 hour ceremonies I was taken into a different level of awareness, the energy shifts, the energy centers open within the body/mind and a different level of reality opened to reveal love, light and an awakened intelligence not previously present.

But I realised at the same time I wasn’t Indian and I was not brought up in the culture. The little nuances of an Indian upbringing was not in my DNA blue print. No matter how hard I tried, I was a western white boy with Christian DNA. It was at this time I prayed to Jesus Christ and my prayer went like this, “OK Jesus I am willing to have you in my life but I don’t want all the christian crap. You will have to come to me in a different way, a way that entails meditation and love” and I left it at that.

Two weeks later a friend came over with a set of Books. She said that a yoga teacher we both knew had given them to her, thinking I might be able to use them. She wasn’t  interested in them and my name had popped up in her mind. The books where ‘A Course in Miracles’ (ACIM), a book channeled from Christ by a Jewish psychologist.

It pretty well covered all my criteria for how Jesus was allowed back into my life. And so started a journey that I have been on and off for 35 year. I started with the workbook, each lesson was as a daily meditation. Through these years Christ and I have had our ups and downs.The course took a back seat while I lived at the Findhorn community in Scotland. Over that 5 years it was 24 hour/ 7 days a week group encounter with 200 members. There was so much going on spiritually that I didn’t need to look at the books.

he lets the water take him
he aims for the opposite shore
and allows the current to take him there,
he emerges relaxed, no energy expended
and goes on his way.” RK

Healing seminars – It is time for a healing change

Hi,
How was Your Christmas and New Year?
I don’t know about you but I am glad 2014 is over especially the last couple of months. It seems that there are still (ha!) things in my unconsciousness that need to be cleared . My ego has so many ways of keeping me busy clearing the mind blocks to Inner peace.
Last year was a powerful vehicle of change for many of us.
it was a year of looking at our shadows and becoming aware of how we all live in this world.  It was a year of consolidating what was best in us and dropping what was not.
We are all being asked to keep clearing our blocks while moving into the higher light of consciousness.
‘We are at the dawn of the golden age’ the mystics tell us. The good news is ‘that we have eternity to get it right’
This year Shauna and I are continuing to reinvent ourselves, once again.
We have had enough of suffering and struggle.
We have had enough of constantly living in a world based on stress and fear of the future.
This is not how we are meant to live, being always anxious about health, money, happiness and relationships. MA_Rob10

Mind games – creating reality

So let’s play with our minds, lets play with what we call reality, this 3rd dimension we all live in. Well we don’t really, our bodies do and hence our brains that reside within our bodies.

lotus-webHowever our mind, our consciousness, well, where it resides is up for grabs.

It is one of the big questions that science has no answer for…so far.
“What is the relationship between the mind and the brain especially regarding conscious experience?” (Ref:The Buddha’s Brain, Rick Hanson Ph.D)

When I ask people do they exist? they look at me like I am an idiot. “Of course I exist – here I am”  Where? I ask, “I am in my body, I am this separate self, a human body, separate from all others.”

Where are You in your body? Is my next question. Most will say  “I am in my head, my brain”. Oh really?

If we inquire more deeply we can pull those beliefs apart. You are the one that creates your reality, and that your body and brain create what you, the mind, hold in consciousness.

If you have beliefs that you are separate and in control of your life then these beliefs need to be shaken.  We are destroying ourselves and the environment because of our beliefs that we are separate from the rest of life and somehow in control.

Here is an example of how you depend on your connection with nature.
What are one of the first things you do in the morning before you get dressed to go out? You check the weather, to know the temperature, because you have to dress accordingly to maintain a healthy body temperature. We all know instinctively that maintaining the right body temperature is very important. So the weather has a direct effect on the body and your mind.

So our minds are separate from the body but also interdependent with the body and the outer environment down here in this third dimensional reality. The body/brain is really a space suit with a powerful inboard computer. Continue reading

here is a gentle loving meditation that I often use in my meditation classes. It is a graceful and loving way to connect with the Divine Presence.

Opening the Heart field with the Golden light of love.
This guided meditation may be done either sitting up or lying down. It can be done within 10 minutes if you so wish. You may record it, if you have no one to take you through the process. It can have a profound effect on reconnecting you to your own personal sense of the Divine. Blessings and loving kindness to all beings.

We begin by taking some gentle breaths in and slowly out. With each breath out we let go of the old tired energy/qi. And with each breath in we give ourselves permission to relax, let go and accept all that is.
Let the breath take you deeper and deeper as you give yourself permission to let go and relax. Feel this wave of relaxation move from the top of your head to the tip of your toes.
Each breath gives you permission to relax, unwind, let go and let be.

With your next breath in start to see or experience a golden ball of light floating above your head, a glowing sun of beauty and brilliance. This bright light flows from the core of all existence. It is the center of the entire universe, sparkling gold.

Feel this light entering you mind and filling each cell with this golden light. Each cell starts to radiate this light; each cell has a smile on its face. This light is the light of Divine joy, happiness, love and profound inner peace.

As this ball of light fills the mind and nervous system it begins its journey down into the heart. As it slowly descends it relaxes every part of the body that becomes covered in its brilliant light.

Each breath in brings the light to the spiritual heart and each breath out releases the blocks that in the past would have been holding this light from entering.
With your next breath in, see and feel the golden light fully entering the spiritual heart. The light fully embraces all aspects of the Divine heart field of love, compassion and light.

You can feel the light in the heart radiate out into every cell. The blood cells carry this wonderful light out into every organ, muscle, nerve fiber in the body/mind complex. The breath continues to draw in this cosmic light and release any old tired stuck areas.

As your body is filled with this golden light you feel yourself becoming lighter and lighter. You are lifting up, floating free and starting to walk on a golden arch that leads to a huge circle of light at the edge of the Universe.

This circle of white light calls you and as you move towards it, it also moves towards you. The light radiates out filling the whole universe and everything within it. You are filled with a loving, peaceful joyous light and you are able to immerse yourself into this Divine presence.

So for a few moments allow yourself to just sink into this living loving presence. This is the heart of the Divine. This is where all healing can occur, where all peace resides. In this brilliant presence you are able to fully rest knowing you are held and lovingly support by the Divine indwelling Presence.

You are in the heart of Divine Presence and Presence is within your heart
You and the Divine are One.

When you are ready to come back just take a deep breath, count to 3, open your eyes, be wide awake, refreshed, renew and reconnected.

Letting Go – The Pathway to Surrender

Part 1.

The title of this blog is the same title of a book I am currently reading. The author is a famous psychiatrist, Dr David R. Hawkins, who most people would know as the author of Power versus Force. Dr Hawkins pasted away in 2012 but his legacy lives on in the amazing research he conducted over his life. This remarkable professor  was also an awakened Soul.
He used kinesiology – muscle testing to define what he called a ‘map of consciousness’. He was a psychiatrist who ran a large psychiatric hospital with a staff of 50 therapists with 2000 out patients. He would get up to a 1000 new patients a year. Patients come from every country. He would get the most severe cases, Many people who were brought to him were in his own words, ‘the most hopeless of the hopeless”
But in each patient he saw what would heal them. In his own words again, “Beneath the crippled appearance, there was the shinning essence of love and beauty, perhaps so obscured to ordinary vision that he or she had become totally unloved in this world.”

He recognised the fact that everyone needs to be loved. And as he help his patients connect to their own love within and see who they really were, they began to recover. Continue reading

Healing happens ten times faster…………..
by Robert Kendall B.Ac Dip.Med.Herb.
Chinese Medicine Practitioner and Kinesiologist

I have been practicing natural medicine for over 30 years and I am still amazed when people refuse to acknowledge that their negative emotions contribute to all their health problems. No matter what your dis-ease or health problems might be, I guarantee there will be an emotional aspect causing the condition to be more severe or painful. This is especially true of health problems that refuse to go away or are becoming worse.

“The inner experiences of most people is marked by constant stress. Most of the stress that results in emotional and physical disorders in our society is psychological in origin…….the main stress to the majority of us most of the time is due not to external stimuli, but to the pressures of our own suppressed emotions.”
Dr David Hawkins MD, PHD Letting Go the power of surrender

Western Medicine has thousands of research papers over many years, showing the connection between negative emotions and physical symptoms and still it is hard to find a doctor who will make ‘how you are feeling’ a part of the diagnosis.sand-stones Continue reading
