The beautiful synaesthetic music of Gary Malkin

I have just listened to an interview with Gary Malkin, the film soundtrack composer, talking about the healing effect of music. Here is a video featuring his music and some beautiful words. When you play it, stop what you are doing, be still, and feel. Apparently, music "tuned" to a specific frequency will glow purple, i.e. it 's emitting light. A large proportion of our body is water. Is it any wonder that music is thought to affect us at the cellular level. If we go deeper, we are all vibration, which is sound. Enjoy! Interview with God (Not to be confused with Conversations with God)

My interview with amazing bowel transplant recipient

First, the bad news: I was hoping that today's post would include the video of an amazing no-holds-barred interview I held on Monday with the wonderfully courageous recipient of a bowel transplant, relaying his experience of Crohn's since the age of twelve and his journey through parenteral line feeding to his transplant in November 2011 and a return to eating last week!
We recorded the interview over Skype last Monday - and it was absolutely fascinating. Unfortunately, the recording gremlins were at work and the file was corrupted and not even an entire day spent on transatlantic communication with the techie gurus at the recording software company could retrieve the file.
Now the good news: Undaunted, Michael has very generously agreed to a repeat performance late next week and it promises to be even better, as last week was the first time we had spoken and this time we can hopefully cover more ground. Of course I will be looking at the amazing mind-body interaction aspect of the transplant as you would expect, and I can't wait! Watch this space! - Joy

The Dalai Lama goes into a Pizza Shop and.....

The Dalai Lama is interviewed by an Australian TV news reporter who tells him this joke....

"The Dalai Lama goes into a Pizza parlour and says "Can you make me one with everything?" The Dalai Lama asks his translator for a translation and then says "Ah, Pizza shop" and goes back to listening intently to the interviewer, who repeats the joke and, laughing, tries painstakingly to explain the joke, "Can you make me ONE..."  (pauses for emphasis as he tries to demonstrate to the Dalai Lama by holding his hands together as if in prayer) "... with EVERYTHING" (the interviewer gestures a large space with his hands and starts to laugh at the hole he's digging for himself). The Dalai Lama again asks his translator for some clarification and then resumes concentrating on the interviewer intently and smiling, he says, "Theoretically impossible" upon which the interviewer laughs with embarrassment and says, "I knew this wouldn't work" upon which the Dalai Lama starts to laugh.
You might think this was the end of the joke, and I guess you're wondering, "Where's the connection with Crohn's and Mind-body interaction?", well wonder, no longer......

Here is a comment  posted on the same page where this interview was reported. Continuing the joke's theme it provides a lovely illustration of the Lama's reply:
"The Dalai Lama gives $100 and waits, but the waiter says (drum roll), "the change comes only from within"."
There you go!
Love it.

"Top Secret" can now be revealed.... "mBraining"

Further to my post on 12/12/2011 I can now reveal the details of this book which has now been published in Kindle format and is shortly due to be released in print.

Please note: Although posts in this blog are quoted in the book, I have not yet had a chance to review this book or try out the processes it outlines.

It is "mBraining" by Grant Soosalu and Marvin Oka which explores the concept of three brains: Head, Heart and Gut.
Two important distinctions to note are first, that the gut and the brain share many more structural and operational similarities than they do with the heart; and second, the function of the heart itself is far simpler than either the brain or gut.

Here is the link to the book in  Amazon U.S:   where it has a 5 star review rating.
and Amazon  U.K: 
Here is a description of the book:
"The latest scientific research shows you have three brains - three complex and fully functional brains in your heart, your gut and your head!

In this groundbreaking book, you’ll discover the latest neuroscience findings about your multiple brains (head, heart and gut brains) and what they have to offer for increasing intuitive abilities and for immediately generating wiser decision-making in your daily life. Providing you with numerous practical and easy to learn methods, this book shows how to communicate with and tap into the innate intelligence of your multiple brains.

mBraining coaches you in aligning your three brains to achieve greater wisdom, success and happiness in a world of massive change.

Utilizing the powerful and practical methodologies of NLP, Cognitive Linguistics and Behavioral Modeling, the authors have synthesized a remarkably wide range of research findings into an integrated approach that is practical, potent, and immediate in its results.

Now scientific knowledge is finally catching up with deep insights from esoteric and spiritual traditions informing us for thousands of years about these three powerful intelligences.

This is not a popular science book, nor is it a typical self-help book. This is a book that both breaks new ground as well as complementing many other spiritual and self-development practises. In this book, you’ll learn the process of ‘mBraining’ - the process of aligning and harnessing the power of your multiple brains. The suite of practical methods it provides is part of an amazing new field called ‘mBIT’ - multiple Brain Integration Techniques.

This is a book that changes lives by giving you a real ‘how’.

Written in an easy to read and entertaining style, this is a highly accessible guide to understanding the scientific basis behind your gut intuitions, your heart-felt emotions, and your head-based creative powers. The lessons in this book can transform your relationship to yourself, to others, and to the world in which you live. If you are serious about your self-evolution, this book is a must read!

Learn to use your multiple brains to do cool and amazing things in your life! "

For more information on the concepts in this book you might like to explore the mBraining website.

Please note, this is not a book review and I have not tried the processes described in this book.
