Regreening the simple (but effective) way.

I’ve always said the technology to regreen the earth and solve climate change already exists, but the will does not.  Happily this program called FMNR (Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration) proves that I was right about the former, but wrong about the latter.

The simplicity of the answer is very cool – and effective.  Rather than planting new trees, which takes many years for benefits to be realised, they’ve begun to simply protect and appropriately prune the regrowth from trees which still have viable roots under the soil.  Overgrazing wasn’t allowing these trees to regrow but, with the right approach, benefits are being realised within years, rather than decades.

The FMNR program has already re-greened millions of hectares in Africa, with manifold benefits in the health, nutrition and even education of the locals, as well as benefits to our planet as a whole and to the climate.  There’s always an answer, if only we can see it.  And, thanks to this one Australian aid worker, one of the answers to healing a devastated environment has been found.

So if you’re feeling a little hopeless about climate change, watch this and you’ll rekindle hope for yourself.  If you’d like to assist in rekindling hope for this planet you can always go to www.fmnrhub.com.au

A Fractologist’s view

I’ve been asked many times what it is we Fractologists see.  It’s a tricky question of course, because every Fractologist perceives energy and its underlying fractal structure differently.  Some of us see it, though in different ways, some of us feel it and some of us hear it like a repeating phrase of music.

But no matter how we perceive it we all perceive the same integrity pattern that underlies and creates the essence of all things.

This short video is a fractal zoom video.  It’ll take you deep into the most famous fractal of them all, the Mandelbrot set.  Notice how much infinite detail there is in the fractal, and how the initial pattern keeps turning up, no matter how deeply we go.  These are essential fractal traits.

Want something inspiring?

One thing the fractal teaches us is that everything serves – everything has its place in the whole.  If even one piece is missing we are diminished.  This short video shows that in clear ways.  When the wolves were re-introduced into Yellowstone Park after an absence of 70 years no one was sure what was going to happen – they certainly didn’t expect it to change the course of the river!!

The Silence of Africa

Family arguments

I was once again privileged to have a short stop over in Africa.  There’s something about the silence of their bush that resonates with me.  Their wet season is their summer, not their winter.  This means the water lasts a lot longer and it supports a lot more life than Australia, though it is similarly arid.

The other thing that’s so striking about the wildlife here is how quiet it is – except when it’s roaring, of course. Most of the time the wildlife is sneaking around either trying to avoid being eaten, or trying to eat something.

The smell of dinner

The silence is so full of life, it hums.  The whole air just vibrates with the resonance of life.  It is easy to believe that life, and human life, started here.

This is the second time I have been here and it just confirms how much I love their bush, its wildlife and the deep sense of life here.  It has a strong energy, a life force that informs the energy of all things that are touched by it.

Here the silence is so alive it is a physical experience of the void that is full, the void from which all life and all creation is manifested.

Here the silence is similarly full.

Being in this silence is a blessing of the deepest kind.

Imaginary friends prove the wisdom of play

For many years we have all been told that having imaginary friends is a sign of a disturbed mind, that it is some kind of delusion to compensate for deep issues. As someone with invisible (not imaginary) friends, I’ve always found this attitude a strange one as I’ve been keenly aware of the profound benefits of their company in my own life.

Now Evan Kidd, senior lecturer in psychology at ANU, has started the work for us to understand these relationships in a different way.  It’s clear he believes invisible friends are imaginary, but he has done some well-designed research to determine what, if anything, is the effect of having imaginary friends.  And he has found that having such friends has enormous benefits.

The video here is of Evan Kidd, talking at TedX at Sydney. I’ll let him tell you himself about the benefits. Primarily he’s found that having imaginary (or, I suppose, invisible) friends helps us greatly with developing our ability to talk to people in different realities, which is what we’re doing when we’re children and talking to adults.

As he sees this very much in terms of his study of the importance of play he’s been able to apply these understandings to how important it is for all of us to learn through play. It’s through play we develop such higher skills, and so begin the development of our own wisdom.

World Science Festival

holographic_world-757x467I’ve recently been listening to some of the recordings of the World Science Festival.  This is a very cool gathering that happens in New York where eminent scientists get together to let the world know what is happening at the frontiers of science.  There are many excellent talks to choose from.

What I particularly found fascinating was how many of the panels included physicists and philosophers.  That in itself is a powerful sign of how close our understanding of the world around us and our consciousness is becoming.

In the talk I’ve included here, which you can also find at the World Science Festival website at http://www.worldsciencefestival.com/programs/holographic_world/ , they’re not only talking about the world we know it as a hologram but it seems they are getting very close to understanding that fractals are essential to a unified understanding.

Note where Professor Raphael Bousso talks about how their growing understanding of black holes has led them to realise that the key is to unify quantum mechanics, which is about information, and gravity, which is about the shape of space and time.  Fractals hold complex information in simple codes, and our understanding of them was derived from topology, the study of shapes and surfaces.  So far they are still studying the information side of things from a linear perspective, which is, I believe, holding up the next significant breakthrough.  But when a network theory of information is developed they’ll understand better that the information on the surface of a black hole is not so much individual bits of information but networked bits, and then we’ll see another revolution in technology.

Or so I believe.  It’s going to be interesting to see what happens.

Power of the Hologram, Brazil

Many new Fractology friends at the Power of the Hologram, Sao Paulo, Brazil

This trip to Brazil has marked many milestones.  It’s seen initiations and the first graduation here in South America.  We were able to speak to a large mainstream medical congerss in Brasilia and we ran the Power of the Hologram for the fourth time in Brazil.

Fractology is entering a new cycle and this was evident by the enthusiasm of those who were present for the Power of the Hologram.  Many of these were people who have not been previously exposed to Fractology and many of them we had not met before.  Fractology is reaching a wider audience and we’re delighted to be making new friends.

A well-deserved celebration

Last week Monika von Koss graduated from her Fractology training.  She is the first practitioner to complete her training not just in Brazil, but in the whole of South America. This is a huge achievenn significant step forward for Brazil and Fractology.

Monika has had a successful psychotherapy practice in Sao Paulo for many years and with this graduation adds significantly to her skill base.  The benefits of having a Fractology Practitioner in such a large city is huge.

Congratulations Monika.

We wish her all the very best with her practice and ongoing journey.

Holographic Initiations in Brazil

Holographic initiates with Dr Catherine Wilkins

Today we marked a milestone in Fractology. We had a group initiation into the hologram, and fractal perception which is enabled by holographic space. This initiation is done part-way through the Fractology Practitioner training and marks a milestone in our spiritual and metaphysical awareness.

This group initiation is a shift globally for Fractology, and for me personally as I haven’t initiated more than one person at a time into this space before now.

Fractology is growing up and going global.

Congratulations to all the initiates. The future for Sao Paulo is looking brighter by the minute.

The Power of Ecstasy, Brazilian Style

Tuning into Ecstasy

More ecstatic people on the planet. Yay!!

Last weekend we ran The Power of Ecstasy in a beautiful hidden spot outside Sao Paulo here in Brazil. I’m always inspired by watching participants open up to new levels of joy and abundance in their lives.

We welcomed back many familiar faces and some new ones as well. It was a very powerful workshop with all the participants opening to the new understanding that they can create through joy and ecstasy, rather than through negative states. This is such a new concept for many people it takes a while for it to catch on but once we share the practical skills the shifts we see are wonderful.

DSCN0458
A wonderful spot to do our soul work.

The feedback we’ve had since the workshop is that many of the participants have had life-changing shifts in awareness, self-connection and energy.  We’re looking forward to witnessing the expansion in their lives.

We are all meant to create this way – through the joy of being in the creative flow of the Universe. But, as always, it helps to know how!!

Chichen Itza

DSCN0249This is an image of the main pyramid they’ve excavated at Chichen Itza, the largest and most well-known of the Mayan cities surviving to this day. It was still inhabited when the Spanish arrived and it was just too big for them to dismantle, though some of the outer areas were taken down as the Spanish used the stone for their own buildings.

The way the top of it pokes up above the surrounding trees weirdly reminds me of some scenes from Star Wars.  What do you think?

Fractologia

Catherine and her advanced students in Sao Paulo
Catherine and her advanced students in Sao Paulo, Brazil

I’ve been working here in Sao Paulo for the past week. It’s always wonderful to work with a group of people so open and eager for the work and understanding that comes with it.

There’s a group of students I’ve been working with since the first time I came. They aren’t studying Fractology, as such, but many of the other advanced awareness techniques Fractology has developed. We meet now every trip for advanced lessons and their ability to now tune into a precise resonance is encouraging in so many ways.

It’s so long between trips I don’t think my Portuguese is getting much better though. Unless you count an additional couple of words getting better.

Fractologia is Portuguese for Fractology.

Lollipops have a higher power

The Good Will labyrinth

The Temple of Good Will

Once I got to Sao Paulo in Brazil I then flew out again to the nation’s capital of Brazilia. After all the talk I have been doing about Emily Simpson’s labyrinth project for Centennial Park the first thing they did was show me their own labyrinth.

This is a simple 7 spiral labyrinth set inside the most remarkable building. It is a building dedicated to good will, a  modern day pyramid with the most enormous quartz on its peak.

Then I did my talk at the Brazilian Society for Psycho-Oncology to a very select group of people drawn from all over the country. Here is a short exerpt from the talk:

The complexity of fractals enable simple principles to be applied with ever-increasing options or opportunities, through growth, which in fractal terms is called iteration – yet another repetition of the base pattern. At the same time, a fractal is robust, maintaining its coherence throughout every opportunity. Many dynamic systems, through finding the most efficient method of networking, will start to form complex patterns that will take on fractal characteristics.

This is now being used in the analysis of cancer cells. Analysis of the fractal dimension of a cancer cell is not only showing great promise of early detection, but is also showing the ability to diagnose the cell-type with a great degree of rapidity and reliability.

Of interest in the field of psychology, fractals are an effective model for neural modelling. Our brains have fractal organisation. Fractal processes and properties occur at many levels of neural organizations and performance, and are functionally relevant. This is especially true with the growing understanding of the brain as not just simply the functioning of individual neurons, but the functioning of whole neural networks.

It was extremely well received and we hope to see a growing interest in the work of Fractology as a result. If you’d like a copy of the whole text of the talk (not that I stuck to it very well) please email me and I’ll be happy to send you a copy.

Ruth bathing her sore toe on our walk before I examined it.

After the talk we went to Pirenopolis via John of God. There’s some very powerful, raw energies in that place. At Pirenopolis we were able to relax and enjoy the Brasilian countryside. However, Ruth who was with us was in pain from an injury a couple of weeks previously. She asked me to have a look and when I examined it, it was clear her big toe was broken. She’d been to the doctor but he hadn’t touched it and it was left unsplinted.

All I had with me were some bandaids and some lollipop sticks. But they were enough to splint her big toe and get her some relief. Which proves two things:

1. There’s always an answer.

2. Lollipops have a higher power.

Mayan Dreaming

DSCN0071
At Palenque

 

I love the juxtaposition of these beautiful old buildings next to the jungle. Of course, when the city was inhabited the jungle would have been reduced to a few picturesque trees along avenues and plazas.

DSCN0081
Tower of Venus

The Mayan’s really did have an amazing culture. It was a stone-age culture which reached its height about 4000 years after Stonehenge was built. It is difficult to say what they would have produced had they had access to iron or bronze. They did so much with what they had.

Their building techniques were superb and their culture sophisticated. Their healing was particularly focused on gut-related issues and contraception. The first because they sadly lacked a decent plumbing system and so everyone was always getting stomach infections. The second was for the upper classes. The lower classes were encouraged to have lots of children as it meant a larger workforce.

Their writing, which look like pictograms, is actually syllabic. Which means each glyph represents a syllable, somewhat like Japanese. They observed the movements of the stars with considerable accuracy, and were particularly interested in the equinoxes and the movements of Venus.

DSCN0113
View from the Water Temple

The equinoxes told them about the two different parts of their agricultural year which were dependent upon the rainy season here. The rise of Venus at sunset at the ‘cross-quarter’ date (halfway between a solstice and equinox) at Halloween marked the end of the rainy season. Her tower here in Palenque leans like the tower of Pisa, only here it is deliberate and not a matter of building on unstable soil. The lean is so that on the 31st October and 1st November the tower will cast no shadow.

All of which was amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. There is a private research station doing some work into recapturing the healing botanicals of the Mayans, which I didn’t get time to visit but would love to one day. However, I found the cities themselves empty of any presence of the Mayans themselves.

DSCN0025
Quinta Cha Nab Nal

Perhaps because the cities are these days full of tourists who have curiosity but little alignment with the people themselves. I actually found the Mayan presences in the first hotel I stayed at, which was here at Palenque. This was a boutique hotel called Quinta Cha Nab Nal. Lightning has struck the place a few times. The image to the right is the small building the owner, Raphael, built where lightning blasted a tree not far from the main lobby.

Raphael is german-italian and has been obsessed with the Mayans since he was 13. He moved here and set up the hotel. He’s an archaeologist and he’s the one who explained the Mayan language to me. He clearly has a deep connection with the people and culture.

DSCN0009
My hotel room

Indeed, as I said, it was here I felt the presence of Mayan spirits. I couldn’t sleep very well on my second night here because they were working on me most of the night. It was very interesting but not conducive to rest! As I was walking through jungle and around ruins the rest of the time I guess it was their only opportunity.

They were mostly working on my gut, something I’ve had trouble with over the years. It was fascinating. They appeared to be working with the ‘gut brain’ in a way I hadn’t thought of – treating it like a collective consciousness of its own. My gut has certainly felt stronger since, and I think I’ll be able to reproduce the energy work they were doing, given a little time. So my holiday turns out to be more of a sabbatical.

Human and Divine

Human and Divine
It takes both sides

Healing or spiritual growth or personal development is the process of becoming whole, of realising the entirety of who We Truly Are.  This means we need to become complete with both sides of our nature; the human and the divine.

In order to become complete with our human self we need to be able to appreciate how the contrasts and limitations of our lives give our experiences a flavour and a focus we would not otherwise have. It’s a little like cooking with a limited number of ingredients; if we were to cook with everything the unique flavours would get lost. The first step in this process is completing and releasing any pain or dis-ease in our lives so we can shift our focus away from what we don’t want and begin to focus on the pleasure and sensuality which is the physical experience of joy.

This is the strength of Chiropractic. It enables us to align our bodies, our physical selves, so we are open and receptive, aware and integrative of those things that we don’t want and we easily filter out and release those things we don’t want.

Getting complete with our divine self is a process of appreciating how we are part of the creative flow, in all its power and majesty, and we each have a unique part to play in it.  Fulfilling our own part is so natural a part of our true essence it is linked to our deepest joy.  Gaining the personal clarity we need to be able to know what this is, cooperate with its unfolding and express it gracefully and powerfully on the planet is necessary here.  Paradoxically, this is a process of realising our limitations are only real for as long as we make them so.

This is the strength of Fractology. It enables us to align our consciousness and our minds, so the pure light of our divinity is focused through the lens of our minds into each moment of our lives. Through this process we begin to realise the divinity in all things, and that we, too, are truly divine.

Through the twin powers of chiropractic and Fractology we are able to work through the paradox of life, and use the focus of our physical limitations to realise the individual expression of our magnificent, true divine selves.
