May 2010


May 1… wow time has flown!! Forgive the lapse in writing. Like many, I got caught up in the dynamics of our present day. And for me that has been the health care/Medicare saga. Nonetheless life goes on and we all must continue to work on rising above the Cirque de Media, so to speak. So, when I step back and look at the big picture, the world needs a healing! Crazy weather, rioters, immigration issues, oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico… good grief we could use some Prozac in the water to help cope! Yet “running for the shelter of our mother’s little helper” is not the answer. I believe that at this juncture we need music and rhythm to soothe the savage beast inside us. Going out on a limb – and showing my age! – John Lennon penned a little ditty years ago: “All You Need Is Love”. After reading some fascinating research I really appreciate the wisdom held in that song title.

In the world of complimentary medicine we talk of self-love, the healing power of the Christ’s love, the Buddha’s compassion, etc. Love thy enemy, thy neighbor, the IRS (ok, so that may be stretching it), but you get the point. The philosophy behind this “kill ’em with kindness” modus operandi is that when we approach the person who cut us off on the road with love and compassion we heal them and ourselves. Now to be sure, one can say that “well of course that helps! You don’t get all riled up and shoot up your blood pressure doing that!!”. And that is correct! We know that stress kills. More heart attacks occur on Monday morning than any other time. Stress suppresses the immune system, leaving the body open to infection and cancer. What I recently found fascinating is the work by Greg Braden in which he dug a little deeper on the concept: all we need is love. In his book The Isaiah Effect, Braden presents research from many avenues, demonstrating that the blueprint for life – our DNA – is “alive and kicking”.

In short, one of the big points he presents first is that DNA curls or unfurls in response to our emotions of stress vs. being at peace. When we are upset our DNA coils up, shutting down many genetic sequences. It’s almost as if the DNA goes into survival mode. The caveat: what genes are shut down? Ones for health? Lower cholesterol?? And yet when we are at peace, happy, in love the blue print for life molecule stretches out and becomes fully functional. Cool stuff!!! And it gets better!! (If you act now… ok, ok, on with the program! I got it.) Our military conducted experiments with human DNA’s response to emotion. From the human white blood cells DNA was extracted and placed in a test tube next to its human counterpart. The people were then subjected to pictures and/or words that would elicit certain emotions: happiness, anger, sadness. Now I don’t know how the scientists witnessed the response but the person’s DNA (in a test tube outside the body) reacted in the appropriate fashion at the same time the subject experienced an emotion, ie if they became angry the DNA coiled up. And the way out, Star Trek-like part is, that this was true for up to 50 miles apart (the person and their DNA)!! What happened at 51 miles – the experiment was stopped at 50.

So… cool beans, but what does this mean? There must be some grid of energy that exists within and around us, allowing for us to affect one another and our environment. This may be why people who are prayed for from a distance fare better than those who are not. It may even explain the old adage: be careful about for what you pray. And if this grid of energy idea is true, think of what we are doing to ourselves buying all the drama on CNN. What if we instead focused on prayer, inspirational readings, or even laughter?? If a group of people can affect a positive outcome in an unknown sick patient (which has been published in medical journals), what could we do with a “love focus” to stop crime, poverty, and disease?? The possibilities are endless! And yet to accomplish such a feat we must set aside ego and operate from our own divine selves. (Oh darn! You mean I can’t go cuss that person out? Not once?) Nope. No can do.

Worry not. I’m about to teach you a couple mantras to help accomplish this feat. Prayer of course can be used as can affirmations. But these do not affect the energy take in centers of the body (chakras) like mantra. Religious affiliation has nothing to do with the efficacy of mantra. It is pure energy – just like electricity. First mantra is Aham Prema (a-hum pray-ma) – I am divine love. The second invokes Supreme peace: Om Shanti (shawn-tee) Om. When you get angry, filled with fear, feel hopeless, try saying one of these mantras over and over again. Whether chanted aloud or silently, they work.

Now if these two mantras whet your appetite for more please consider my class on May 16th: Mantras, Mudras, and more. And for those with a more insatiable hunger for knowledge consider attending the class Mantra: A path to Spirituality and Abundance. November 12-14th with my mantra teacher Namadeva Acharya (Thomas Ashley-Farrand).

In summary, love does conquer all, including disease. Our health care system is changing, and those changes will necessitate the patient to operate from a more “self responsibility” mode. Greg Braden and our military have shown how our emotions affect our DNA and hence forth our health. If we can operate more from a love centered emotion as opposed to fear or anger we individually and collectively are put in a better place. There are many paths to achieve this “love center” frame of mind, and mantra is a simple, powerful path to such an end.

May peace replace your inner turmoil. May the Love of God enfold you, protect you, and empower you.

Shanti and prem (Divine love and peace),

Go to the GYM | SOMA

Boyfriend/ girlfriend showing their ass? Coworkers being turds? Life upside down to you? Go to the GYM. It’s an acronym. God, Youth, Mental.

Mars in Cancer (Reel) | SOMA

Life is a balance. Be the solution to someone’s problem. To survive we must learn to swim together.

Level Up Your Vibration | SOMA

Don’t get stuck in your stuff… Call out to the Universe for help and guidance and be open to it! Writing it down helps manifestation. Level up your vibration to draw it in.


We are coming up on the Autumn Equinox and Pagan holiday of Mabon, the time of year when the time of day and night is equal. In reflection, healthcare has changed drastically the last 2 1/2 years. It’s time for people to step up and start taking care of themselves.

This is for you, Daddy | SOMA

Laughter truly heals. Thoughts are chemical messages that cross the blood brain barrier, allowing for consequences of one’s celebrations. Breaking the word “laugh” down shows how it works metaphysically. Loving All Unconditionally Gives Healing. As a solution to blocks in love there are Mantras to help change the energy from one form to another.

BRA Resolution | SOMA

Time again for New Year Resolutions to improve something – weight loss, saving money, spending time meditating, etc… I encourage doing something daring – get a BRA: Best Friend, Reality Check, and Awareness of a Higher Power. Invest in having/being a true friend. Take inventory of your blessings, become humble, get to know the Divine.

Dr. Zen Jen is Now In | SOMA

With all the hubbub about socialized medicine I offer my concerns/advice. Emphasis is being placed on personal responsibility regarding health habits when it comes to obesity. Genetics, home environment, and MSG are tops in this multifactorial problem. To survive this healthcare challenge: only eat when hungry, exercise, avoid MSG/HFCS, rest, and read/do something spiritual daily.

Ramblings on a Warm Summer Eve | SOMA

How many freedoms have we relinquished in favor of big government? Many are jumping on board the proposed overhaul of our health care system without thought of what all it entails. No one wants our healthcare all government run. Physicians can only coach health and lifestyle adjustments. Patients need to take personal responsibility for themselves.

Swine Flu | SOMA

Swine/H1N1 flu: government hype or real concern? Through DISR, one is trained to dig for the original/root cause of the dis-ease and I can see thoughtforms/actions that helped make this disease manifest. All animal Totems have positive and negative qualities. Where in your life are you fat and sloppy? Honor the temple/body God granted you.

You Call it Easter, I Call it Ostara | SOMA

How do bunnies and eggs relate to the resurrection of The Christ? Pre-Christian movement, pagan tribes worshipped the land and the Gods/Goddesses for health, wealth, good crops, and happiness. To win the minds of these tribes the Church needed to demonstrate similarities between the native ideology and the one that they were trying to assimilate.

You are the Tower of Power Needed This Hour | SOMA

Eclipses are times of change represented by the two astrological signs involved. Aquarius/Leo represents what’s good for many versus what’s good for me. This eclipse asks us to examine how we can think outside of ourselves and be of true service. Leo is self-love and self-import. Aquarius is about the highest/greatest good for all.

What is Divine Intervention Spontaneous Remission? | SOMA

Divine Intervention Spontaneous Healing (DISR/DI) is an energy healing modality used by the ancient Mayans, and still used by the Curanderos in Central America, brought to the US by Starr Fuentes who studied with them for three years. If you are familiar with Reiki, DI is more intense, consisting of 144 healing rays vs. 1.

Taking the Old Out of Auld Lang Syne | SOMA

Another year older and wiser, we gather and review the year’s events with family and friends. Let’s focus on ways to slow down “the clock”. Inflammation increases one’s risk for cancer and infection. Supplements such as Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, Thyroid Replacement Therapy, DHEA, EPA/DHA, Resveratrol, and Vitamin D3, along with exercise can help.

Sir, is that a fly in my soup? | SOMA

Texas sure has a lot of bugs. Every year once critter or another has a bumper crop. This year, it is fleas, which represent dead energy. It’s interesting this comes at the time of Halloween or Samhain, a time to honor the dead. Associations with astrological signs Scorpio and Pisces deals with death/transformation and procreation/creation.

Take in a Deep Breath and Relax | SOMA

While Mercury is in retrograde, causing mayhem in the world of communication, energy work can still be done to mitigate its affects. It’s a time to review and revamp. Utilizing prayer and mantras you can sooth unbalanced thought forms and work with the energies to manifest your desires with the help of Laksmi and Ganesh.

What the Heck is Goin On Here? | SOMA

Typical after an eclipse, and we just endured two, a lot of “stuff” is going on in the world lately. First (solar) eclipse was in the astrological constellation of Leo and focuses upon self-worth. You are worthy! Second (lunar) eclipse was in Aquarius and focuses upon revolution – group consciousness, awareness, and achievement of Utopia.

The Attitude of Gratitude | SOMA

We create our own reality by choosing our focus. Dwell on negativity and that is what you will attract. Quit being a victim of your thoughts. Change your thoughtforms. See what is right with your life. Watch how your life transforms as you take control, empower yourself. Love yourself enough to soar with the eagles.
