How to unleash your body’s own healing power without supplements
by Paul Fassa (NaturalNews)
The corpse pose, or savasana, is the last posture, or asana,
in any Hatha Yoga routine
It’s apparently the easiest, because one lies flat on one’s back without moving. But it’s actually the most difficult to master, because it’s so internal.
It’s powerful enough that anyone can benefit from it without practicing other yoga postures. It’s not for just getting a breather or having a moment to take it easy. It’s much deeper than that.
But it’s not fully appreciated for what it does, even among many yoga students and teachers.
What It Does for You
As you gain more control over your body’s different muscles by relaxing them, you are slipping away from the more manic pursuits of our diseased culture. After gaining success with the corpse pose, you will find it easier to be calmly in a witness state, despite what is going on around you.
The corpse pose aligns your subtle body with your physical. Without that, you won’t benefit fully from yoga’s health benefits. The subtle body is more like your energy field or astral body. It remains even after the physical body expires. It is what you will be taking with you after bodily death.
Letting Go is What it’s All About
Ultimately, your experience is the final judge of how well you do the corpse pose. You should practice on a firm surface with minimal padding without the creature comforts that encourage napping.
Lay flat on your back, legs apart slightly and arms slightly apart from your body with palms up. Palms up helps you stay awake.
Avoid falling asleep. You want more consciousness, not less. But a mind racing or drifting is distracting. When your mind does this, bring it back gently to one of two physical areas: focus on breathing and/or relaxing tense muscles.
The standard technique of releasing tension in sequence from the feet up or from the head, neck and shoulders down takes time. So you may have to be satisfied with partial relaxation sessions as you progress toward total relaxation.
As you progress, sometimes relaxed muscles tense up again. Go back to that section and continue until you feel the tension release.
If the orderly sequence of conscious relaxation in different muscle sections is too difficult, then simply focus on your breathing in a relaxed manner. Allow your awareness to discover an obvious area of tension. Stay with it until it you’ve relaxed the tension completely.
Then shift your awareness to another part that is tense and work on relaxing that area. As you do this, progress is indicated by feeling that you’re wide awake and melting into the floor with no desire to move. Eventually, you’ll realize the bliss of total mind and muscle relaxation.
Tensions previously unknown may be discovered. Those tensions are unconscious. By releasing them, you are releasing consciousness. Tensions also indicate subtle or chi energy blockages that cause bad health. Releasing them promotes good health and strengthens the immune system.
The corpse pose can be practiced often, even without practicing other yoga postures. At first, you may feel dull and tired, or restless and wanting to move about. The corpse pose is so simple that it’s hard, at first. But these conditions resolve with patient practice.
Stress is the source of many health problems. The only hormone that increases with age is health-harming, stress-produced cortisol. Eventually, one can do the corpse pose to totally relax and rejuvenate in 5 to 20 minutes or so anytime, anywhere.

Tree Hugging Now Scientifically Validated
In a recently published book, Blinded by Science, the author Matthew Silverstone, proves scientifically that trees do in fact improve many health issues such as concentration levels, reaction times, depression, stress and other various forms of mental illness. He even points to research indicating a tree’s ability to alleviate headaches in humans seeking relief by communing with trees.

Reconnecting to Nature through Spiritual Permaculture by
Dr Leonid Sharashkin
In this insightful presentation, met with a standing ovation at the 2007 Earth Transformation Conference, Editor of Anastasia and the Ringing Cedars Series reveals the potential of Russia’s permaculture gardening movement to change our world.
(Note from Yvonne: We might be able to source this DVD in South Africa)
If you’ve already been through an economic collapse, you might know a thing or two about how to feed your family with little money. More importantly, you might know how to do it without pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and GMO seed. On a total of about 20 million acres managed by over 35 million Russian families, Russians are carrying on an old-world technique, which we Americans might learn from. They are growing their own organic crops - and it’s working.
According to some statistics, they grow 92% of the entire countries’ potatoes, 77% of its vegetables, 87% of its fruit, and feed 71% of the entire population from privately owned, organic farms or house gardens all across the country. These aren’t huge Agro-farms run by pharmaceutical companies; these are small family farms and less-than-an-acre gardens.
A recent report from Agro-ecology and the Right to Food says that organic and sustainable small-scale farming could double food production in the parts of the world where hunger is the biggest issue. Within five to 10 years we could see a big jump in crop cultivation. It could also take the teeth out of GMO business in the US.
“Farmed seafood has certain advantages over wild fish in meeting modern demand. For a global marketplace that demands increasingly predictable products—uniform-sized fillets available year-round, free of the vagaries of weather or open-ocean fishing—fish farming delivers this predictability. Farms are also becoming more productive, raising fish at a lower cost and expanding the potential market.” (Brian Halwell, Farming Fish for the Future).
Unfortunately, not all of us want to utilize organic farming. Purchasing 500,000 shares of Monsanto stock in 2012, Bill Gates is just one key figure who argues that GMOs are an absolute necessity in order to fight global starvation. Of course along with ‘saving the world from starvation’, GMO crops also bring along a large number of unwanted health and environmental effects. This isn’t even considering the fact that long term, we truly don’t know what kind of impact this will have on the earth on a major scale. Though we do know once everything is GMO, it will be virtually impossible to go back to a natural world.
Check out NaturalSociety’s YouTube Channel for some recent videos on the March Against Monsanto event occurring in Philadelphia, PA. The videos offer some educational information along with a look at how people everywhere reject Monsanto and genetically modified organisms. Say goodbye to GMOs. We don’t need them.
“We won’t solve hunger and stop climate change with industrial farming on large plantations,” says Olivier De Schutter.
The light hearted side of medicine / doctoring
A: Heart only good for so many beats, and that it… Don’t waste on exercise. Everything wear out eventually. Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster. Want to live longer? Take nap.Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: Oh no. Wine made from fruit. Fruit very good. Brandy distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way. Beer also made of grain. Grain good too. Bottom up!Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can’t think of one, sorry. My philosophy: No pain…good! Q: Aren’t fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU NOT LISTENING! Food fried in vegetable oil. How getting more vegetable be bad?
Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: You crazy?!? HEL-LO-O!! Cocoa bean! Another vegetable! It best feel-good food around!
Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming good for figure, explain whale to me.
Q: Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! ‘Round’ is shape!
Well… I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways – Chardonnay in one hand – chocolate in the other – body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming “WOO-HOO, what a ride!!”
For those of you who watch what you eat, here’s the final word on nutrition and health. It’s a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.
1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Brits.
2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Brits.
3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Brits.
4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Brits.
5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Brits.
CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.
Peace and Forgiveness
Ho’oponopono: What in the world is it?
Ho’oponopono is a practice of forgiveness while accepting full responsibility for negative situations that arise in your life. Once the philosophy of Ho’oponopono is truly understood, health, finances and overall well-being improve.
Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len is a stunning example of the transformative power of Ho’oponopono. He worked for four years at the Hawaii State Hospital which housed criminally insane patients. Staff turnover was high due to the violent nature of the environment. Astonishingly, Dr. Len never saw a single patient. He simply reviewed the patient files and “cleaned” himself using Ho’oponopono. He kept saying “I’m sorry” and “I love you” over and over.
According to Dr. Len in the book Zero Limits, “After a few months, patients that had to be shackled were being allowed to walk freely. Others who had to be heavily medicated were getting off their medications. And those who had no chance of ever being released were being freed. Not only that, but the staff began to enjoy coming to work. Absenteeism and turnover disappeared. We ended up with more staff than we needed because patients were being released, and all the staff was showing up to work. Today, that ward is closed.”
The secret? “I was simply healing the part of me that created them,” states Dr. Len
Ho’oponopono heals negative feelings and reactions. It can be practiced anywhere and doesn’t require people to adopt a new belief system or religion. As part of the law of attraction, Ho’oponopono states that we are ultimately 100 percent responsible for everything that crosses our path, including the not so pleasant. When we take full responsibility and clear the negativity within ourselves, life begins to open up and flow.
The quintessential practice of Ho’oponopono is comprised of four silent statements:
I love you
Please forgive me
When an unpleasant feeling, situation or interaction arises, the practitioner repeats these four phrases until a feeling of balance and neutrality arises. One key point of Ho’oponopono is that nothing manifests externally, it is all within. So when we mentally say “I love you,” we are expressing a loving orientation towards ourselves. “I’m sorry” is an apology for creating a disharmonious circumstance. Next, we mentally forgive ourselves for the digression. Finally, we express our gratitude. Joe Vitale of The Secret and long-time practitioner of Ho’oponopono, says that even just mentally saying “I love you” will help shift negativity into more positive, authentic states.
He observes: “Being responsible for what I say or do is one thing. Being responsible for what everyone in my life says or does is quite another. Yet, the truth is this: if you take complete responsibility for your life, then everything you see, hear, taste, touch, or in any way experience is your responsibility because it is in your life. This means that terrorist activity, the president, the economy or anything you experience and don’t like – is up for you to heal. They don’t exist, in a manner of speaking, except as projections from inside you. The problem isn’t with them, it’s with you, and to change them, you have to change you.”

Studies reveal the effectiveness of medical hypnosis
by Mike Bundrant
(NaturalNews) My colleague, Chiara Marripodi, recently provided me some very interesting data on the effectiveness of hypnosis, as follows. It’s fascinating to consider the healing properties of what so many consider hocus pocus!
The validity of therapeutic hypnosis as a complementary modality is becoming recognized, as studies prove brainwave activity changes with hypnotic depth. As we move from the high-energy beta wave state to the slower theta waves, we experience perceptual and physiological changes; for example our eyes flutter, breathing is more rhythmic, the body is relaxed and time is distorted.
Interestingly, children and animals tend to reside in the alpha/theta waves, thus are more intuitive and emotional. According to Crawford, a prominent researcher in the hypnotic field, different parts of the brain are activated during hypnosis – some increasing from 13%-28%. Preliminary results also suggest the reward pathway in the brain involving dopamine is stimulated. In fact, research using fMRI shows that hypnosis requires more mental effort, hence individuals are in a heightened state of awareness.
The power of hypnosis coupled with suggestion changes belief systems by reframing the meaning we place on experience. William Tiller, a former Professor Emeritus at Stanford University aptly states, “What we give meaning to we become.”
Studies on the effects of hypnotherapy abound, for example, those tested positive for tuberculosis using the Mantoux test method were able to inhibit the test reaction following hypnotic suggestion. Interestingly, the use of cooling images for burn victims greatly increased speed of recovery. Hypnotic suggestions given pre and post surgery reduced the need for excessive anesthesia and medication.
This clearly shows that hypnosis has a neuropsychoimmunological effect on the individual; highlighting its versatility, encompassing far more than it’s traditional uses for habit management, fears and weight loss. So what allows us to delve into this part of ourselves? Consciousness is defined as awareness. How many of us are completely aware of every waking moment?
Quantum physics suggests that we are the creator of our own realities; it is our expectations and intention that creates the space around us. Indeed, William Tiller has researched the effects of intention on experimental outcome. In one study he demonstrated it was possible to repeatedly alter the acidity or alkalinity of water using intention. If this is evident with water what does this mean for the human body? We are 70% water after all!
This finding should have you on the edge of your seat, for it tells us that we are more powerful than our beliefs suggest and we significantly impact our lives and those around us. We do not live in a vacuum rather we are entangled one mind with another on a quantum level. Moreover, our emotional minds and physical bodies are tightly intertwined, thus we are co-creators not victims. Society conditions us to believe ego is our true essence.
This conditioning builds our expectations and belief system based on illusion. Consciousness is the beauty of being human. It’s what gives the matter of which we are made the innate intelligence to create. Furthermore, consciousness is found in the animal, plant and microbial kingdom albeit at differing levels.
So if our cells have consciousness what information can we tap into using hypnosis? Consciousness is the energetic thread of our existence. Hypnosis therefore is the gateway to finding our authentic selves.

Russian Scientists Reprogram Human DNA Using Words and Frequencies
DNA science has finally explained previously mysterious phenomena such as clairvoyance … intuition … hands-free healing … “supernatural” light and auras … and more.
Western scientists have limited their studies to the 10% of our DNA responsible for building proteins.
The discoveries are to the credit of Russian researchers, who ventured into DNA territory Western researchers have failed to consider.
Western scientists have limited their studies to the 10% of our DNA responsible for building proteins.
That means they have dismissed the other 90% of DNA as “junk.”
In contrast, an innovative Russian team, led by biophysicist and molecular biologist Pjotr Garjajev, refused to accept that such a huge majority of DNA could hold no research value. To probe the mysteries of this uncharted terrain, they paired linguists with geneticists in an unconventional study to test impact of vibration and language on human DNA.
What they found was completely unexpected — our DNA stores data like a computer’s memory system. Not only that, but our genetic code uses grammar rules and syntax in a way that closely mirrors human language!
They also found that even the structuring of DNA-alkaline pairs follows a regular grammar and has set rules. It appears that all human languages are simply verbalizations of our DNA.
Changing DNA With Spoken Words and Phrases
Most astounding of all, the team discovered that living human DNA can be changed and rearranged with spoken words and phrases.
The key to changing DNA with words and phrases is in using the right frequency. Through the application of modulated radio and light frequencies, the Russians were able to influence cellular metabolism and even remedy genetic defects.
The team achieved incredible results using vibration and language. For instance, they successfully transmitted information patterns from one set of DNA to another. Eventually, they were even able to reprogram cells to another genome — they transformed frog embryos into salamander embryos without lifting a single scalpel or making one incision.
The Russians’ work provides scientific proof of why affirmations and hypnosis have such powerful effects on human beings. Our DNA is inherently programmed to respond to language. Esoteric and spiritual teachers have known this for ages. All forms of affirmations and “thought power” derive in part from this underlying principle.
The Russian research also helps explain why these esoteric techniques are not equally successful for all who use them. Since clear “communication” with DNA requires the correct frequency, individuals with more highly developed inner processes will be more able to create a conscious channel of communication with the DNA.
Individuals whose consciousness is more highly developed will have less need for any type of device (to apply radio or light frequencies). Scholars of this science believe that with consciousness, people can achieve results using only their own words and thoughts.
DNA and Intuition: How “Hypercommunication” Works And Why Humans May Now Be Able to Reclaim It
The Russian scientists also found a DNA basis for the phenomenon of intuition — or “hypercommunication.” Hypercommunication is the term used to describe situations when someone suddenly accesses information outside his or her personal knowledge base. In our times, this has become increasingly rare. That’s most likely because the top three factors that prevent hypercommunication (stress, anxiety, and a hyperactive brain) have become so prevalent.
For some creatures, like ants, hypercommunication is woven into daily existence. Did you know that when a queen ant is physically removed from her colony, her subjects continue to work and build according to plan? If she’s killed, however, the ants become aimless and all work instantly halts. Apparently, as long as the queen ant is alive, she can access the group consciousness of her colony through hypercommunication.
Now that the Russians are untangling the biological underpinnings of hypercommunication, humans may be able to regain full use of this skill. What the scientists found is that our DNA can produce “magnetized wormholes.” These magnetized wormholes are miniature versions of bridges that form near burned-out stars (called Einstein-Rosen bridges).
Einstein-Rosen bridges connect different areas of the universe, and allow the transmission of information outside of space and time. If we were able to consciously activate and control such connections, we could use our DNA to transmit and receive information from the universe’s data network. We could also contact other participants in the network.
The findings of Russian DNA science & research are so groundbreaking that they do truly sound incredible. Yet, we already have isolated examples of individuals who have mastered the necessary techniques, at least on some level. Those who have succeeded with remote healing and telepathy are examples to consider.
According to many with an active interest in the Russian DNA research, these findings reflect the major changes occurring with our Earth, sun, and galaxy. These changes are affecting human DNA and elevating consciousness in ways we may not fully understand until well into the future.

Twelve Things Happy People
By Jacob Sokol – Sensophy
“I’d always believed that a life of quality, enjoyment, and wisdom were my human birthright and would be automatically bestowed upon me as time passed. I never suspected that I would have to learn how to live – that there were specific disciplines and ways of seeing the world I had to master before I could awaken to a simple, happy, uncomplicated life.”
Studies conducted by positivity psychologist Sonja Lyubomirsky point to 12 things happy people do differently to increase their levels of happiness. These are things that we can start doing today to feel the effects of more happiness in our lives. (Check out her book The How of Happiness.)
I want to honor and discuss each of these 12 points, because no matter what part of life’s path we’re currently traveling on, these ‘happiness habits’ will always be applicable.
2. Cultivate optimism. – Winners have the ability to manufacture their own optimism. No matter what the situation, the successful diva is the chick who will always find a way to put an optimistic spin on it. She knows failure only as an opportunity to grow and learn a new lesson from life. People who think optimistically see the world as a place packed with endless opportunities, especially in trying times.
3. Avoid over-thinking and social comparison. – Comparing yourself to someone else can be poisonous. If we’re somehow ‘better’ than the person that we’re comparing ourselves to, it gives us an unhealthy sense of superiority. Our ego inflates – KABOOM – our inner Kanye West comes out! If we’re ‘worse’ than the person that we’re comparing ourselves to, we usually discredit the hard work that we’ve done and dismiss all the progress that we’ve made. What I’ve found is that the majority of the time this type of social comparison doesn’t stem from a healthy place. If you feel called to compare yourself to something, compare yourself to an earlier version of yourself.
4. Practice acts of kindness. – Performing an act of kindness releases serotonin in your brain. (Serotonin is a substance that has TREMENDOUS health benefits, including making us feel more blissful.) Selflessly helping someone is a super powerful way to feel good inside. What’s even cooler about this kindness kick is that not only will you feel better, but so will people watching the act of kindness. How extraordinary is that? Bystanders will be blessed with a release of serotonin just by watching what’s going on. A side note is that the job of most anti-depressants is to release more serotonin. Move over Pfizer, kindness is kicking ass and taking names.
5. Nurture social relationships. – The happiest people on the planet are the ones who have deep, meaningful relationships. Did you know studies show that people’s mortality rates are DOUBLED when they’re lonely? WHOA! There’s a warm fuzzy feeling that comes from having an active circle of good friends who you can share your experiences with. We feel connected and a part of something more meaningful than our lonesome existence.
6. Develop strategies for coping. – How you respond to the ‘craptastic’ moments is what shapes your character. Sometimes crap happens – it’s inevitable. Forrest Gump knows the deal. It can be hard to come up with creative solutions in the moment when manure is making its way up toward the fan. It helps to have healthy strategies for coping pre-rehearsed, on-call, and in your arsenal at your disposal.
7. Learn to forgive. – Harboring feelings of hatred is horrible for your well-being. You see, your mind doesn’t know the difference between past and present emotion. When you ‘hate’ someone, and you’re continuously thinking about it, those negative emotions are eating away at your immune system. You put yourself in a state of suckerism (technical term) and it stays with you throughout your day.
8. Increase flow experiences. – Flow is a state in which it feels like time stands still. It’s when you’re so focused on what you’re doing that you become one with the task. Action and awareness are merged. You’re not hungry, sleepy, or emotional. You’re just completely engaged in the activity that you’re doing. Nothing is distracting you or competing for your focus.
9. Savor life’s joys. – Deep happiness cannot exist without slowing down to enjoy the joy. It’s easy in a world of wild stimuli and omnipresent movement to forget to embrace life’s enjoyable experiences. When we neglect to appreciate, we rob the moment of its magic. It’s the simple things in life that can be the most rewarding if we remember to fully experience them.
10. Commit to your goals. – Being wholeheartedly dedicated to doing something comes fully-equipped with an ineffable force. Magical things start happening when we commit ourselves to doing whatever it takes to get somewhere. When you’re fully committed to doing something, you have no choice but to do that thing. Counter-intuitively, having no option – where you can’t change your mind – subconsciously makes humans happier because they know part of their purpose.
11. Practice spirituality. – When we practice spirituality or religion, we recognize that life is bigger than us. We surrender the silly idea that we are the mightiest thing ever. It enables us to connect to the source of all creation and embrace a connectedness with everything that exists. Some of the most accomplished people I know feel that they’re here doing work they’re “called to do.”
12. Take care of your body. – Taking care of your body is crucial to being the happiest person you can be. If you don’t have your physical energy in good shape, then your mental energy (your focus), your emotional energy (your feelings), and your spiritual energy (your purpose) will all be negatively affected. Did you know that studies conducted on people who were clinically depressed showed that consistent exercise raises happiness levels just as much as Zoloft? Not only that, but here’s the double whammy… Six months later, the people who participated in exercise were less likely to relapse because they had a higher sense of self-accomplishment and self-worth.
