The Science behind Healing

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

I am writing this blog in advance of a meeting that I have organized at the University of Arizona in Tucson in the lab of my friend and client, Dr. Gary Schwartz. In attendance will be the renowned healer, Dr. and Master Sha, and two of his associates who have been studying the science behind his healing techniques. In addition I have invited a producer for Public Broadcasting Television who specializes in programs about health and wellness. The goal of the meeting is to develop a protocol to scientifically measure and test Dr. Sha’s therapeutic practices. We know he achieves amazing results, but modern doctors and scientists want proof. Otherwise they dismiss his results as “anecdotal, unscientific, the  result of the power of suggestion, the placebo effect” and other derogatory slights which do not honor  not only the results but the science behind the method Dr. Sha has developed over a period of more than twenty years of effective practice.

I do not discount the skeptics. There is such a thing as healthy skepticism and I encourage scientists and conventional western medical doctors to challenge Dr. Sha’s methods and results. It is only by pushing for ever greater clarity that we can make progress on both a scientific and practical level. I am not confident that we will be able to create a controlled scientific double blind experiment that “proves” Dr. Sha’s effectiveness. After all we are dealing with human beings and we cannot put human beings at risk. I am not even confident that we can create a scientifically valid measure of the effectiveness of Dr. Sha’s methodology. I am hopeful that we will provide, at a minimum, some additional evidence and data that other scientists will not be able to ignore and that will encourage additional studies not just of Dr. Sha’s effectiveness but the effectiveness of other unconventional and traditional and non-traditional healers and healing modalities.

Life in the Fast Lane

Friday, October 25th, 2013

I like to drive fast, very fast. I have driven from Sun Valley, Idaho to San Diego in less than ten hours. That is almost images-2a one-thousand mile trip, meaning I averaged close to one hundred miles per hour for the entire trip.  That includes stopping for gas and even a quick bite. I actually drove closer to 120 miles an hour for most of the trip.

I should probably not blog about this. Clearly I was breaking the law. At the same time, the road was clear, and with the extra focus needed to drive that fast I felt safer than on a normal highway. It was a two lane road and even at that hyper speed I saw only ten to twenty cars in what was a  five hundred mile or longer stretch from the  Idaho / Nevada border to Las Vegas.  I lucked out when stopping for gas and was pointed to a short cut used by race car drivers about two hundred miles outside of Vegas.  I felt right at home in the fast lane.

Everyone has a different rhythm. My rhythm goes best with speed. I talk fast, I think fast, I deal fast, and I even play golf fast.  Lately I have been busier than usual. Today I participated in three radio shows. The first was with the Global Oneness International event that was live in fifty or more countries around the world. At least 35,000 people tuned in to our session on the Vision for New Global Leaders. Dr. Jean Huston and Dr. Ervin Laszlo were my co-panelists and Steve Farrell emceed the hour. It was a blast. I learned as much from listening to my co-panelists as I ever learned from my top professors at Harvard and Yale. (more…)

Friday the 13th

Friday, September 13th, 2013

Historically, at least in America today, Friday the 13th is a day fraught with danger.  In today’s date, Friday, September 13,images-2 2013, we have not just one but two thirteens. This double thirteen phenomenon will only happen once more in the next one hundred years on Friday December 13, 2013. So be careful, very careful. Maybe you should not even leave home.

But seriously, why is the combination of thirteen and Friday considered bad luck? This is not true throughout the world. In fact, in some cultures thirteen is considered a lucky number. We can only speculate on the origins of the belief that Friday the thirteenth is a cursed day, but knowing what I do about numbers I can say that thirteen is a special number indeed. Thirteen is the beginning of new cycles in music. After twelve notes you do not get a thirteenth note, you get a new octave. In traditional religions twelve is the sacred number, but there is always a thirteenth energy that has either created the twelve or is created by the twelve. I used this knowledge in formulating the collection of characters in both of my novels The Twelve and The Power of Twelve. (more…)

Fear and Greed seem as old as life itself. We can find cases of both in stories from all societies throughout history. What is the origin of fear? Where does greed come from? How is it that both fear and greed seem to feed upon themselves with fear creating greater fear and greed creating greater greed? With both fear and greed, too much seems to be never enough.

Greed in the world today is unimaginable with people accumulating massive wealth that neither they nor their 4823442859_299c7869e7_odescendants could spend in dozens of lifetimes.  At the same time, fear is being used to keep and guard these fortunes. Whether it is the fear of running out of  oil or the fear of terrorism or the fear of illegal immigrants overrunning  the  country, fear is an effective tool in keeping people focused on problems which are, in most cases, secondary rather than primary issues. When we look at the creation of Homeland Security, TSA and the other offshoots of fear-based thinking we can see that trillions of dollars and billions of man hours are being spent to somehow mitigate the fear of terrorism. Do we really think that armed guards provide the ultimate protection from terrorist threats? Do we really want to support a fear-based government policy that puts “security” above the constitutional rights of the first amendment and the right to privacy and the pursuit of happiness? (more…)
