Today sisters and brothers we have a wonderful video from Alan Watts.

What is self?

A Hindu / Buddhist perspective.

Karma the law of doing!

Evolve your consciousness, use the resources of your own mind to control your own destiny, by accepting the views of others and understanding that we are all Humans, we are all equal.

Seeing things from a different perspective allows us to have the freedom to choose our own experiences, our own ways, to enjoy our lives.

Resources for all, opportunities for all beings of every faith and complexity.
These are the aims and goals of the Money Free Party to evolve us a Humans to a resource based economy, a huge network of people doing good for each other, creating wealth not with money but by action, by liberation, by having the freedom to be you we will have a better money free world with resources enough for all.

After all ladies who wouldn’t want a hand carved present on valentines by hubby and guys imagine the time you could spend with your children instead of the bump and grind of work for cash.

Think of your hobbies most of us wouldn’t give these up with or without money, I play guitar and there is no way in the world, even if I didn’t have a guitar for some reason or another I would stop music, I’d bang the floor, make a drum, because music is a part of my very soul, what makes you feel this way?
Want to do more of it?

What is it you do that you probably would love to do more of, that you would have to do with or without money, football, shopping, painting, paint balling?

It does not matter what your passion our money based world is designed to not allow us time to just be us, this is one way a community would differ in a resource based economy, people would be doing more of what they are passionate about and get really good at it too.

We can not argue that banker and corporate greed is responsible for the most traumatic and disturbing actions towards the beings of this planet, and the Earth Mother her self, yet it is common knowledge that just in wars alone the resources used could have solved a large proportion of the planets problems to date.

Time for us, the people to create our own resources the power of us, lets use our Human Resources to build a better world now, get in contact with us to find out how you can learn to manage the resources in your area better, after all you live there right?

By becoming a candidate for the Money Free Party – UK you can start to make a real positive difference to how the resources in your area are managed.

Enjoy the short film.

Essential Oils for Balancing Chakras

Essential Oils for Balancing Chakras

Chakras are not “New Age.” They are Old Age being rediscovered. They are mentioned in both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. The Jews even have a symbolic representation for the seven Chakras in their Menorah of seven candles, the center one representing the heart chakra. (For a good reference on chakras and the menorah in the Old Testament, see reference at the end of this article.)

The first thing to understand is that we all possess an electromagnetic field in which our physical bodies are immersed. Even the medical and biological professions acknowledge that human beings have, not only a physical body of flesh and fluids, but also a subtle electromagnetic field upon which their physical body is superimposed.

Physicians measure your electromagnetic (EM) field to detect problems with your heart and brain by means of EKGs (Electrocardiograms) and EEGs (Electroencephalograms), but they don’t understand, nor utilize, the connections of our EM bodies to our physical bodies in a way to provide pathways to healing. They don’t understand that physical maladies, conditions, and sicknesses usually show up as irregularities in our EM field before they manifest physically. They are unaware of the connection between our minds and feelings to our electromagnetic field and how the condition of the EM Field affectsour physical well-being.


Chakras are electromagnetic centers along the spine of our EM fields. They are the dynamic, functional organs of our EM body, which is a template that causes our physical bodies to materialize and manifest as it does. It is also through the EM Field that our physical bodies are energized and are enabled to maintain a healthy state directly from God’s consciousness. The Bible says, in both Old and New Testaments, “Man shall not live by bread, alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Deut 8:3 and Matt 4:4. The phrase, “By every word…” is in reference to God’s constant and continuous vibrational energy that emanates from Him constantly, which permeates the universe omnipresently, and which maintains us as living, conscious beings. If God’s constant attention on his created worlds flickered, even for one second, the universe and everything in it, including us, would vanish. Psalm 121:3-4

It is that subtle EM field, a living spark of Gods consciousness, that ignites the life of a new human being at conception, that provides the pattern for the union of a sperm and an egg from a man and a woman to assemble into a complete body, molecule by molecule, cell by cell, into a completely ordered physical form. Without the electromagnetic blueprint enshrouding the developing fetus in the womb, the dividing cells would not know into which organs to differentiate and arrange themselves to form a complete, functional living body. Without the electromagnetic body, we would have no physical body. When we die from this physical form, we become aware of our EM body, which is a body of light and energy. Our bodies of light are usually not seen by us when we are living in the physical plane encased in flesh, but our etheric body becomes quite visible to us when we discard our material frame at death.


Some people call our electromagnetic body our “astral body,” our “ethereal body,” our “spiritual body,” or our “heavenly body.” A part of it can sometimes be seen as a golden “halo” around the heads or upper-bodies of spiritual people. We use and employ that energetic body constantly and daily, even though few people are consciously aware of it. That is where our long term memory is stored which we take with us at death when the physical brain and body cease to function and decay. When we die, we lose our physical brain. But we will know and recognize our friends and relatives in the after-life. So how can we remember and recognize our loved ones in the world hereafter if our long-term memory were tied to a physical brain, which we will no longer have.

Our short term memory is in our physical brain, which is our hard drive, but our long term memory is in the “subtle cloud” around us which we can access when living in our physical bodies like a computer accesses the ambient universe of the internet. But when we shake the mortal frame and become aware of our energy bodies, we don’t need a physical instrument (a brain) to access our etheric memory because we are living as energy in a cloud of energy, no longer bound by physical limitations.

The fact that short-term memory is in the cerebral matter of the physical brain, while our long-term memory is stored in our electric field that survives death, explains why elderly people will can often recall memories of long ago, even in their childhoods, but may not be able to remember what happened yesterday, or even five minutes ago. While their short-term memory is not working well because their physical brain may have aged somewhat and lost function, the long-term memory in their EM field is fully intact. As people age and approach their final days or years, they may gradually grow more in attunement with their etheric body and gain increasing access their permanent memories, which have been stored electronically as energy. As one detaches one’s self from the physical body, they usually gain greater access to their energetic body and the memories stored there.


The principal functional organs of your etheric body are the seven “chakras,” as they are called in Sanskrit in India. But the word, “chakra” in Sanskrit simply means “wheel.” This is appropriate since the chakras are all circular in appearance and contain geometric shapes and colors in their detail that could be likened to petals of a flower, spokes of a wheel, or points of a star. I prefer to call them “electromagnetic centers,” which are to our heavenly body what the various ganglionic centers are to our physical body. They are intelligent switching, coordinating, and routing centers for our electromagnetic (EM) bodies and perform functions that keep our physical bodies functioning in contact with God’s vital life force.

Chakras are simply a part of our electromagnetic physiology. We all have chakras or we wouldn’t be alive. To be fearful of the word “chakra,” or to be afraid to explore what they are and how they are a part of every human being, is like being afraid of your navel or your toe nails. They are essential features of your energetic anatomy. Everyone has a set of seven chakras, be they Christian, Muslim, Jew, Buddhist, Hindu, Athiest, or whatever. Some religious systems recognize them and understand their spiritual implications and some don’t. But they are still there for everyone. The more you know and understand what they really are, the closer you can draw to God, whose essence is spirit.

For example, in countries where the Eastern Orthodox Christian Church is prevalent, the chairs in the alter area of the church are narrow and have armrests that are high. When visiting one of these churches in Romania a few years ago I was told that the high arm rests are for the priests to rest their elbows so they can close off their ears with their thumbs, shutting off physical outside sounds, in order to more easily hear the sounds of the chakras and commune with the Holy Spirit. They call it “sound meditation.” I also noticed that outside on the front of the church was a pair of columns with a spiral design, one going clockwise and one going counterclockwise. It was explained to me that these are representations of the spiritual currents that go up and down the astral spine during meditation. So the Eastern Orthodox Catholics understand about chakras and the electromagnetic body, and realize that recognizing and understand how the etheric body functions aids them in deepening their communion with God.

14. What is your Soul Purpose?

We incarnated into human form for various reasons, to clear karma, to learn and grow, to be of service and to complete or at least attempt to complete, our earthly missions.  The mission is generally referred to as our soul purpose.  It is what we are here to achieve, learn, and in all cases heal.  And this is why healing is so important to our journey, there is no growth without healing, there is no healing without creativity, and we must make an effort in order to attain. Everyone you encounter is both a student and a teacher, we are looking in a mirror, a reflection of the good and bad within us. Give yourself a pat on the back for the positive you see and heal the negative, but more importantly, forgive yourself for your short comings, no one is perfect, not yet anyway.

Goodbye Old Paint

He feels a wave of fear hit him as memories of happenings most disturbing suddenly become his awareness, he breathes deeply softly and rides the wave of emotions that have suddenly become him, senses on full alert he can even smell the silence, as hairs stand upon his arms, he takes note that he is love and only his love can save him.

He asks softly and kindly for the assistance of Archangel Michael he asks that healing light be kindly and lovingly sent to his aid.
He asks for the removal of this fear, of this memory, that lessons learned are honoured and remembered.

The angel replies “fear is not real, fear is an illusion that the mind creates to protect its self, it is not happening now, therefore it cannot hurt you, you are love.”

He bows his head with gratitude and thanks the Archangel, he feels the love, the comfort, the security from the angel and knows that he is safe, he knows that he can now let go of torturous memories that serve him no purpose, he knows that it is time to rid the illusions of yesterday, sit upright gratefully in the world in which he already humbly thrives each and everyday.

With love in his heart, he takes release.
Time stands still as tears well up in his eyes, he waits, silently…
As each water drop falls like leaves in the wind, he knows he breaths easier and gains strength with each and every molecule of water.

He smiles, wipes his eyes and is free.

Here I stand alone again, waiting for the pharmacology train.
Misplaced by mistrust, thrown away among the muck.
I stare at the tracks, that bled my arms dry.
The only train to keep appearance, says destination goodbye.

I stand then sit at the station, I wait in anguish at the situation.
All the trains pass by me, there not for me to ride.
Quarantined inside my body, like a caged animal I solemnly.
Await for the conductor to call, my ticket of pain-free divorce.

Far away from buildings or places, out of phase I stare aimless.
At the faces that pass on by, so fast, without care, am I even there.
Cut off from the world around me, but I still feel the people surround me.
Will the train of destitution arrive, if not, how will I strive?

Like a diseased patient I lay in wait, a guessing game from a doctor’s fate.
Food to which I should not have eaten, side effects that fill my plate.
How do I change my state, it’s too late for contemplation.
So I isolate my self, from you, from me, and all that the world can be.

Spasm Chasm


Deep within a dark dank place, hidden from the human race.

I sit.

I feel alone.

The pain is deep and winding.
My muscles ache and twitch.
No drugs flow through my veins.
If they did, they’d only make me itch.

These oddities often manifest, quite simply on their own.

My legs are locked, my arms are torn, it even hurts to smile.
A locked jaw, I want no more, I’m no longer mobile.
A sudden jerk of pre convulsion, pain of mind without emotion.
A limb, my face, but no trace, left for anyone to see.

The abyss of fibres rip, without sound, people pass by unnoticeably.

The Spasm Chasm I not implore, consumes all of my being.
Although I feel it deep within, it’s not for all, too seeing!
On my own, I sit at home, without choice or empathy.
I really want this to end, it’s been like this days.

When will it end?
Will I mend?

My body, convolutes, a random dance.

Confusion of verse betrays me, Fibro Fog, belated me.

The mountain of stairs, not that there’s many, is simply to hard to climb.
It’s times like these that make me ache, with throbbing and pulsation.
Pins like bladed needles walk my back, where art though compassion oh great creator.
My words like medicine heal my soul, the Spasm Chasm has its hold.

This verse, full of gaping, nonsensical confusion.
This is how the Spasm Chasm consumes you!

My world, its illusion.

Day Fiftynine:

What a wonderful, pleasant, loving and joyful day was had by our family today.

We awoke early with beaming smiles on our faces, decided to go out together as a family and had a great day.
I unfortunately yesterday fell and smashed my knee so we had to take my wheel chair on our adventure.

We all held hands and headed into town, had a lovely meal at Costa Coffee and headed to the park.
The sun was shining most of the day and I glee with the enjoyment of watching the kids play.
Shell and I sat together hand in hand, I stroked baby bump gently as we watched the kids running around the adventure playground.

There was lots of other family’s there all smiling and happy what a joyous moment.
It is days like this that are truly what we need to heal and move forwards, it is days like this that let me know just how lucky I am to have such a wonderful wife, children and family.

I keep these memories atop of my mind as they make me smile over and over.

I love you all so very much.

Day Fiftyseven:

I am a somewhat over emotional person, but with that comes passion enthusiasm and drive.
Until recently though, that drive was stuck in reverse and the gear knob broke.

Recent events of past, force me to reevaluate life, a more positive out look is defiantly forming, as I release my mind to all that cares to notice, I let go of the tournament that often plagues it.

Today has been a roller coaster ride of ups and downs, highs and lows, a sharp sudden stop!
And a wake up call.

Let me explain, today Shell opened up to me, probably due to pressure of my line of questioning.
Finally I get some respite as to why she had the affair in the first place, thank you.

Perhaps now my sleep will be less torrential.

She says that she had lost sight of who I was, who she was, the medication had taken me to a very dark, cold and lonely place, due to her love she walked there with me and got lost in the shadows and begged for a hand to rescue her but none came, she was isolated cold and lonely.

One finally came along from a friend she trusted for many years, she desperately grasped at it, wanting to just be noticed, held, told everything would be okay. He deceitfully tricked her with a web of lies for his own selfish sexual desires. Then dropped her like a stone into a pond of torment, she returns home to her true love to lick his wounds and watch his anguish muster.

She still loved me deeply but we hadn’t talked for months, I was asleep when she was awake and visa versa. Our days, weeks months had been spent in a bitter torment or ignoring each other and the only real closeness was sexual and non trivial chit chat.

Even that had become a chore to us due to my health, she wanted to feel something, anything, she had an affair, I cut myself, I understand now and let go of a huge weight, I feel lighter.

I didn’t feel this way at all she is everything to me, but the place I had been visiting for a very long time bought me so very close to death and nearly cost me my love, losing you is so much worse than dying.

We where both deeply depressed, lost, living each day as it comes.

I had nearly died twice in the last year from prescribed medication overdoses, the pressure of life had torn apart our being, we had lost our selves, our way, blocked by doors of our own doing and life’s consequence.

The year before we had been evicted from our home, our landlady sold our house and during the move Shells Dad passed away, the stress and pressure of it all was killing her inside, she said nothing.
I just hid away and ignored everything and everyone, I wasn’t there to hold her hand, to comfort her.

I was so lost in pain and self torment I never even went to the funeral, its no surprise I lost you my love, looking back it surprises me that you still love me as much as you do.

I feel for you, your heart is aching to and my only concern was with my own.
I am sorry for not considering you and the effects this has had on your feelings.

Her openness and honesty hurt like hell but I must thank her, as after the waterfall of tears I feel confident that our future, is not some imaginary dream, but a real goal we can actually achieve.

Although this post seems filled with gloom and doom its more like simple reminiscence, as last night after making passionate love and caressing each other for many hours Shell, gently stroked my face, turned me towards her, looked deep in my eyes and asked me to marry her.

Shock horror!

WOW! I am finally going to be a proper husband and not one living out of wedlock.

Eighteen years ago on her birthday the 25th of April I asked her to marry me, she still has the receipt for the ring from the second-hand jewellers shop all this time later.

Since then I have asked her hundreds of times and due to the nature of our relationship, life and her fear of commitment I assume, she has never really taken marriage seriously.

For her to come out with it like that now after all this time means everything to me.

I call her my wife because to me she already is, we even all have the same names so the kids didn’t have different names to the parents.

She now asks that I take her to be my lawfully wedded wife, under the eyes of God.

And I gracefully and ecstatically accepted.

I still had problems with shooting my mouth of today although much less virulent and controlled.
I walked myself upstairs had a bath calmed my self and came back down, my counsellor said that it is suppressed rage and resentment, and is often caused from simply being nice to the person or people whom have hurt you.

She suggested that I need some form of release to let the steam out of the kettle, as at the moment I have no way for it to escape except for via my mouth and this blog.

I know writing this all down is healing me tremendously, God! forbid what I would be like else.

I do, I do, I do.

I will honour and obey you my love.
