WARNING About Cancer Through Dreams
The results of my breast cancer warning dreams research are highlighted in my recent TEDxRaleigh talk along with a case of uterine cancer where a clarifying dream was required to determine the meaning of the initial dream. Stories about Colon Cancer Warning Dreams are featured in the July 2016 Let Magic Happen newsletter. The take home messages are to keep a dream diary, share the dreams with your doctor, and take the warnings seriously. The TEDx 15 minute video below is titled Cancer Warning Dreams that Can Save Your Life.
UNDERSTANDING and Healing Symbolic Diseases
How would you like to understand symptoms from a symbolic perspective and use these insights to facilitate healing? Holistic radiologist Larry Burk and medical intuitive Winter Robinson will be exploring these ideas in weeklong spring and fall workshops at the Monroe Institute as described in the February 2016 Let Magic Happen newsletter Monroe Medical Intuition Workshop, 2016 dates. Please see the outline below for the daily schedule and this 6 minute video for a description of the experience.
ENHANCING Intuition With Hemi-Sync Technology
Hemi-Sync binaural beats were developed by Bob Monroe to slow down the brain waves into the theta state allowing spontaneous imagery experiences for enhanced intuition. This process will be used in the upcoming 5/22-24/2015 Monroe Medical Intuition Workshop as described in the February 2015 Let Magic Happen newsletter. The highlights of the previous December workshop are discussed by medical intuitive Winter Robinson in the 5 minute video interview with me below:
NETWORKING with Like-Minded Holistic Pracitioners
The annual Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology (ACEP) meeting described in the January 2015 Let Magic Happen newsletter is a great place to connect with other holistic practitioners from a diverse range of professional specialties including psychology, counseling, social work, medicine, nursing, physical therapy, chiropractic and Chinese medicine as well as lay energy medicine practitioners. We also have a lot of fun in this healing community as described in the following 4 minute video:
UTILIZING the Relationship Feedback Technique
The major teaching tool of our evolution has been the continuing experience of challenging relationships to which we have been drawn in spite of repeated failures in the past. The most important seven words in that process are not, “I love you,” “I love you, too,” but, “May I give you some feedback?” “Yes.” I learned the Relationship Feedback Technique during The Legacy Center Leadership Program described in the November 2014 Let Magic Happen newsletter. The approach is demonstrated in the 6 minute video below.
USING the Let Magic Happen Technique
The Let Magic Happen Technique is the foundation for the Top Ten Mind-Body-Spirit Self Healing Techniques in the Appendix. Using this approach will trigger synchronicities as the universe moves to assist you. When you have received guidance from another person on your quest look for ways to return the favor as discussed in the June 2014 Let Magic Happen newsletter about Reciprocal Synchronicities. It will let magic happen in both your lives as described in the accompanying 7 minute video.
GROUNDING Heavy Energy The Inca Way
I was taught this very effective method for “digesting” heavy energy (hoocha) through the “spiritual stomach” by Juan Nunez del Prado, a Peruvian anthropologist-turned-shaman who learned it from his Q’ero teachers in the Andes. It is simple to do in the moment when you are involved in an intense interpersonal conflict as described in the 4 minute video below. For ways to deal with more physical (but still invisible) energies related to EMF Hazards and Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity, see the April 2014 Let Magic Happen newsletter.
LEARNING Spoon Bending
This Technique to Bend Spoons was passed down to me from Duke electrical engineering professor Bill Joines. It originated from the PK (psychokinesis) parties of Jack Houck, an aeronautical engineer at Boeing. You too can amaze your friends and family by participating in quarterly Spoon Bending at the Rhine Center as described in the March 2014 Let Magic Happen newsletter or do it yourself at home. The instructions are listed below with the results shown on the 1 minute video.
TRANSFORMING Symptoms As Metaphors
How would you like to transform your symptoms? I learned the Metaphors for Change exercise from business coach Martha Tilyard and modified it into this Symptom As Metaphor technique for physical issues. It can be combined with EFT for Physical Symptoms of Grief from the January 2014 Let Magic Happen newsletter. I will guide you through the metaphorical imagery process in this 8 minute video and share a story about a student of mine with an eating disorder. A 22 minute combination video Using EFT and Imagery can be found in the Let Magic Happen store for $4.99.
PARTICIPATING in Breast Cancer Dreams Research
Participation in the Breast Cancer Dreams Research Project will help us determine what aspects of warning dreams may be useful to the healthcare professionals taking care of your daughters and granddaughters in the future. After signing a consent form you will fill out a 19 item dream questionnaire shown below that will be linked at the Dreams Cloud social networking site and post narratives of your dreams there. We will not ask you for any additional medical information. The process is explained in this 6 minute video.
FINDING the Hidden Message in Your Symptoms
My quest for hidden messages in symptoms was initiated by my own puzzling illnesses, spurred on by my father’s renal cancer and Louise Hay’s Heal Your Body book, and given solid academic grounding by the work of Dr. Brian Broom as described in the August 2013 Let Magic Happen newsletter Invisible Symbolic Diseases. I will be exploring these issues in depth in an all day preconference workshop at the Canadian Energy Psychology Conference in Toronto on October 24, 2013 as detailed in the 2 minute video below.
UNDERSTANDING the Chinese Five Elements
My understanding of the Chinese five elements comes from local acupuncturists Ian Florian, Andy Prescott and Lori Fendell and from Between Heaven and Earth by Beinfield and Korngold, Acupuncture Energetics by Joe Helms and Nourishing Destiny by Lonny Jarrett. Clinical application of these principles is illustrated in my July 2013 Let Magic Happen newsletter Physician Acupuncture at Duke. A general approach that you can use for your own health issues is summarized in the 9 minute video below.
SWIMMING with Sharks in the Workplace
“How To Swim With Sharks” is a classic parody of surviving the political power plays that are an unfortunate part of any workplace environment. It has particular relevance to Dealing With Skeptics regarding alternative medicine as discussed in the June 2013 Let Magic Happen newsletter. The attack on me by an anatomy professor and an oncologist during a Duke Medical School Curriculum Committee meeting in 1998 is described in this 7 minute video along with the rules about swimming with sharks.
INTERPRETING Dreams in Multiple Dimensions
Keeping a dream diary is an essential tool on the healing journey, as it is the most economical method of psychotherapy available. Sometimes there are also valuable clues to physical healing, as described in the May 2013 Let Magic Happen Newsletter, Cancer Dream Diagnosis. There are many dictionaries of dream symbols, but it helps to take a multidimensional approach to interpretation. The most useful model I’ve found is described in Healing Dreams by Marc Ian Barasch. In the 7 minute video below I offer two of my dreams as examples.
SOLVING Problems with Intuitive Imagery
An abbreviated version of The House of Intuition imagery exercise in Dr. Marcia Emery’s Intuition Workbook led to an unexpected After-Death Communication experience for me a year after my dad’s death in 1994, as described in the April 2013 Let Magic Happen newsletter. Her intuitive problem solving technique can be used for many other purposes as demonstrated in its entirety on this 10 minute video with a shortened version outlined below:
ESCAPING From Stress With Anodyne Imagery
The techniques in Anodyne Imagery can be modified for personal use in stressful situations. You can apply them to dental procedures, MRI scans, having blood drawn or other anxiety provoking events. The steps for relaxation breathing, preferred place imagery and symptom management are described below in the 10 minute video. For details on how I learned about it from Donna Hamilton, see the March 2013 Let Magic Happen newsletter, Anodyne Imagery.
JOURNEYING with the Drum
I learned shamanic journeying from radiologist Al Marsh and shamanic practitioner Mary Phyllis Horn who both trained in Core Shamanism with Michael Harner from the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. My most dramatic journey is described in the February 2013 Let Magic Happen Newsletter on Shamanic Journeying. It is best to learn from a trained shamanic practitioner, but you can get an initial experience on this 10 minute video with me drumming our way into the lower world. The detailed steps are listed below.
DIAGNOSING Intuitively from a Distance
Miraculous stories of Medical Intuitive Diagnosis like in the January Let Magic Happen newsletter are more common than you might think, especially with talented intuitives like Caroline Myss. However, everyone has intuitive abilities, and with training, you may also be able to do remote diagnosis. I learned the simple technique below from Winter Robinson which I have subsequently taught to dozens of people in workshops. Before watching the 11 minute video, please find a friend to do the exercise with who can provide you with identifying information for a target patient.
FINDING Pennies from Heaven
My first experience of finding coins from heaven occurred as a double synchronicity similar to the one in the December Let Magic Happen newsletter. It happened after hearing a Rhine Center talk by Fred Zimmerman where he described all the mysterious pennies he had received from his son who had died years earlier. I excerpted his stories below from Chapter 8 of Let Magic Happen: Adventures in Healing with a Holistic Radiologist, which includes many examples of after-death communication. My coin stories are in this accompanying 8 minute video.
EXPLORING the Meaning of Your Illness
Cancer can be used as an example of a symbolic disease where blocked emotions may play a causative role along with other factors such as genetics and environmental toxins as described in the November Let Magic Happen newsletter, Symptoms as Metaphors. Similar mind-body-spirit connections can also be found with other more minor symptoms such as musculoskeletal pain, hemorrhoids, and postnasal drip. Examples from my own life are explored in this 8 minute video and listed below with symbolic causes from Louise Hay’s Heal Your Body book:
ELECTRIFYING Yourself for Fun and Healing
We have the special privilege of a Halloween guest appearance on the blog video this month by Dr. Nicholas Tesla, great-grandson of the electromagnetic genius Nikola Tesla. He will give a shocking demonstration of the Tesla Violet Ray Machine. Local pawn shops may sell similar machines, but you would be better off buying one that actually has proven clinical benefits. Therefore I will also demonstrate four scientifically tested devices from Norm Shealy, MD, PhD. The Halloween 2012 Let Magic Happen newsletter is about such Bioelectromagnetic Devices.
CORRELATING Physical Symptoms and MRI Findings
In the September 2012 Let Magic Happen newsletter I describe numerous studies showing an unexpectedly high incidence of abnormalities of the spine, knee and shoulder on MRI scans in asymptomatic volunteers. The relationship between MRI findings and physical symptoms can be described in terms of four general categories. It is important to determine which one of these four categories you fall into before making treatment decisions based on MRI scans and clinical symptoms.
An explanation is provided below with an accompanying 8 minute video.
EXPLAINING The Laws of The House of God
The classical medical parody The House of God by Samuel Shem (AKA psychiatrist Stephen Bergman) has been a must read for medical students and residents since its publication in 1978. The August 2012 Let Magic Happen newsletter has more details about The House of God and the somewhat darker and not quite as funny sequel, Mount Misery, another parody chronicling Basch’s psychiatric residency. The Laws of The House of God are listed below and explained in the accompanying 9 minute video.
