Dreams Come True

In the 1970’s I Iived in a Huichol Indian village in the remote sierra Madre mountains of central western Mexico. I had my home here, a small one room thatched hut on a mountain top. This was don Jose’s village, about 100 people, mostly children, and it was a large extended family of which I was included. Serenity and very peaceful qualities of life were normal, and any stress at all was noticeably absent.

Everyone went to bed shortly after sundown, and in the winter this was early in the evening, about 6 to 7 pm. Long nights in bed, in the dark, in  nature’s serenity was conducive to dreaming: this is a nocturnal past time, a natural TV that most Huichols enjoy.   

I  traveled to the USA about every 6 to 8 weeks, for a short visit: to give lectures, sell art crafts, and buy various supplies, and then return to the village. This was a round trip that occurred many times between 1971 and 1977. Each time I returned to the village Huichols would tell me that they had dreamed, the previous night, I would arrive that day. It was almost a game; they would tell a spouse or someone else of the dream before I arrived, and suggest – if I did not believe the accuracy of their dream then I should ask that person. Sometimes an unusual detail about my return trip, or items I brought were included their dreams.

Falling Asleep

A very important moment takes place when we go to sleep. It seems incredible that more attention is not given to what happens to us at this fascinating transition, from awake to asleep. Our perception of light changes, with sleep, to a dark or blank screen and then later to periodic dream sequences. A profound altered state of consciousness occurs, that we “fall” into, losing both memory and perceptions of the daytime world.

If we pay very close attention to the moments when we fall asleep, it is clear that this is a sudden shift, almost like a switch, turning off, at the same time, all the sensory channels including the mind, memory and sense of self. I suspect the switch is a sudden shift of brain waves, which orchestrate billions of brain cells, synchronized to either waking or sleeping states of consciousness. When we “fall” asleep is the moment this takes place, and we can train ourselves to observe it. A precious moment, a chance to learn more about deeper dimensions of consciousness.

Dreaming is another sudden “switch”, from deep sleep to semi-sleep. Brain waves, I believe, are the switch that directs this change of consciousness, synchronizing the cells to respond, like cues from a movie director.

The nature of inner light, that illuminates dreams, fascinates me. Is it actually light, or perhaps biophotons? Can we perceive light that corresponds with frequencies outside the light band (spectrum)? Is our experience limited in time, or is some degree of time travel (observation) possible?

Surfing Waves

 

Crashing waves create very high levels of energetic air (see previous blog). To be near waves as they break, as surfers do, provides a rich source of this kind of magical air. Body surfing and board surfing should be just as good. Have you seen birds like the pelicans and albatrosses fly along the wave crests? Dolfins travel through and near waves to hunt, and they breathe this energetic air.

There is another extraordinary benefit  to this kind of fresh air: Aerosols of all the known chemical elements. These are found in  seawater and are dispersed to a fine mist (aerosol) that is energetic (ionized). In this form it can be inhaled and rapidly assimilated. These aerosols of ocean water include rare elements such as gold, silver. platinum. There is research that suggests many of these rare elements, in miniscule doses. are beneficial to our well-being, . Furthermore, well known nutrients such as iodine and selenium, commonly deficient in the average diet can be inhaled near crashing waves. The outdoors air in many seaside communities probably has beneficial levels of energetic air and aerosol nutrients.

Zeta

Our trillions of cells generate electrical power (primarily) in two ways: the mitochondria use hydrogen ions (splitting  H ions from fats/and or glucose) and the cell uses electrolyte ions (sodium, calcium, potassium, chlorine and magnesium).  Dispersion (zeta potential) is required:  for example too much (over-hydrated and “thin”) versus too little (dehydration and “thick”).  Also, Zeta could be related to air ions, which increase zeta via breathing oxygen ions, and by ionized (structured) water or fresh fruit juice, etc. Understanding the importance of zeta is a key to personal energy and vitality.

Many luminous places yield an increase in personal power. I believe this is via a field effect that increases zeta; both the mitochondria and the surrounding cellular aqueous electrolyte ions pick up power  (via induction ?) from the fields, and stimulate the cell to a higher potential. With this increase in power the cells can function with improved efficiency: absorbing nutrients, removing waste and reproducing.

Practical Value

See link to Richard Thalmeier (founder and CEO of Sharper Image) Wikipedia bio:

“…the company’s most successful product, the  Ionic Breeze Air Purifier.  As a result of the success of the Ionic Breeze, revenues rose to a record $760 million a year in 2003”.

Before the above occurred (1980), I tried to get Paul Hawken (tool manufacturer and entrepreneur) and /or Norman Winninstad (Floating Point Systems) to invest in our air purifier: they did not see the value (at that time). See the articles “Energetic Air at High Elevation” and  future “Energetic Air” in my website archive.

Earth Barefoot

 I love walking barefoot on soft wilderness park trails. Something so simple as this opens a powerful relationship with the earth, and is another technique to establish rapport with a luminous place.

How long have people been wearing foot gear? The use of boots, shoes and sandals goes so far back that it is hard to find historical references to life when everyone went barefoot. Civilization seems to be directly related to the use of foot wear; part of the reason for this is because it is a status symbol of stature and prosperity.

ESD stands for electrostatic discharge, and is a condition for computers so serious that extreme measures are taken to protect computer chips from this kind of electric damage. Computer technicians wear special shoes and bracelets to redirect the high voltage build up, which occurs on everyone, as we move about. Remember those sparks that fly off your hand and zap door knobs, or between pieces of dried laundry clothing, or at the gas station went you get out of your car and touch something? This is thousands of volts discharging from you to the environment. Everytime we move, this generates electrostatic electricity, and it “floats upon us” looking for where to discharge. Is this another kind of (serious) stress? I think so.

Foot wear electrically insulates us from ground, and allows the build up of high voltages. The spark discharge occurs only at rare occasions, yet this high voltage is almost always upon us: except when we walk barefoot, swim, bathe, or have contact with water or the earth. I think everyone feels better after being in the water, or the time spent with shoes and socks off.

 Walking barefoot is a natural massage and stimulates the feet to become stronger. Acupuncture and Foot Reflexology have fascinating maps of the feet and correlations with all parts of the body and mind.

 There are many good locations to go barefoot walking. Obviously, watching where you step is required, and avoiding pavement (roads and sidewalks) is a good idea. I never walk barefoot in the city; I walk barefoot on some wilderness trails, and beaches. There are barefoot hiking clubs which offer excellent guidance and insights.
