TIPS FROM A NOVICE: HOW TO RAISE YOUR CONSCIOUSNES

Doug Henderson PhD, MT, CBT.
A Desire or Interest to Improve your State is a Key!
I was going to begin by saying that I am not some one
special or “gifted” but the truth is we are all special and
we are all gifted. Most of us don’t realize just how
gifted we really are. The truth is, we have spent most of
our life diverting our attention from the power we possess.
We say that life gets in the way. The truth is we are Life.
Life is not something out there some where, we don’t “get a
life,” we are Life. Our collective life experiences and how
we respond to them is what makes us unique – it forms our
“Life Script.” Our life Script may not be logical or even
sensible but it is something that seems to work for us.
These are our defence mechanisms, an armoring that tends to
protect us from; “our-self,” other people, circumstances or
events. In most cases it is designed to limit our growth
potential, to keep us safe, secure and invisible.
As children we learn that it is not a good idea to “urinate
in the wind.” There might be repercussions. We might get
wet. Some one might see us make a fool of our-self. We
might be embarrassed. We might be perceived as challenging
authority. We might make a mistake. It might be a sin. On,
and on, the excuses roll. Rather than put our self at risk
we do nothing or we do what is expected of us and nothing
more. Life becomes a series of unspectacular events that
we are born into, we grow, we drudge we die. We become
victims ruled by parents, hormones or circumstance, waiting
for the weekend or to win the lottery. We are the only
species that places such limiting beliefs upon itself. Mark
Twain observed that if an oak tree had the mind of a human,
it would only grow to be ten feet tall. What is really
tragic is; we seldom examine our belief system and or how
we arrived at many of the beliefs we have. If we did, we
would discover that many of our beliefs we simply accepted
from various authority figures on faith or out of fear and
they certainly aren’t logical conclusions we arrived at
from personal investigation.
Deepak Chopra points out that, 95% of everything we do in a
day is pre-conditioned response. In other words we respond
according to the “life Script” we have arbitrarily
manufactured to suit our needs. Thinking and new growth
experience generally is not part of our day to day, moment
to moment experience
Yet our bodies are a constant stream of quantum events. Our
Stomach Lining is changing every 5 days, our Lungs every
few months, our Liver every 6 weeks, our Skin approximately
once a month, our Skeleton every 3 months, our Brain Cells
and DNA every 6 weeks. Within one year – 98% of our body
has been replaced. Now consider this; what if you started
doing things differently – could this be an opportunity to
re-configure yourself in a new more improved version? The
answer is a definite yes. Often, simple changes can make a
significant difference. Simply having a desire and an
interest to change can cause you to re-examine routine
things that can change inertia and provide an awareness
that starts events moving in a positive direction.
I am reminded of the story of the husband who asked his
wife why she always cut the end off the roast. She didn’t
know but knew her mother did and she decided to ask her.
Her mother wasn’t sure, so she decided to ask her mother.
When asked, grandma explained, the roast pan was too small
for the roast. This is how tradition and habit gets
started and perpetuated!
A definition of “insanity” is to keep responding in the
same old, same old fashion – expecting a different result!
Balance is a Key!
We are much more than a physical body. We are mind, body
and spirit. I know you have heard this before but have you
considered that perhaps it is mind, body and spirit in
balance! Perhaps you know some one who is too much into
their mind (intellect) and the body and spirit suffer.
Perhaps you know some one who is too much into the body and
the intellect (mind) and spirit suffer. Perhaps you know
some one too much into the spirit and the mind and body
Balance is an energetic experience. All relationship is
energetic. It might be worth developing an awareness of
energetic relationship. Energy follows attention. Focused
attention is intention. What we focus on, dwell on, think
about – we manifest. “As a man thinks, so is he. ”There is
no good or bad, there is just energy. Good nutrients in,
good nutrients materialized. Garbage in, garbage
materialized. A simple awareness of how energy works in
our moment to moment thoughts provides insight as to how we
created our life circumstance!
Awareness and Responsibility are Keys!
Here is an example of how the process works.
Our Beliefs become our Thoughts
Our Thoughts become our Response
Our Response becomes our Words
Our Words become our Actions
Our Actions become our Habits
Our Habits become our Values
Our Values become our Experience.
If Energy follows Attention and focused Attention is
Intention Focus Your Attention on Positive Change. Make it
your Intention and all else will change! Change your State
and Change Your Experience!
Change Your Beliefs and your Thoughts will Change
Change your Thoughts and your Response will Change
Change your Response and your Words will Change
Change your Words and your Actions will Change
Change your Actions and your Habits will Change
Change your Habits and your Values will Change
Change your Values and your Life Experience will Change!
Now you will begin to re-configure yourself in a whole new
pattern. As Neil Young once said – “Come down on your own
and leave your body alone!”
Make these Changes and not only will your Life Experience
Change but your Awareness of your Energetic state will
Change and you will become more Aware of your Energetic
But what about all those unbalanced energies that you don’t
have an awareness of? –Our Unconscious Response. Our
Unconscious (Mind) is much more aware of Dis-ease causing
factors and reacts with the Subtle Energetic Changes in the
Electrical Bodies or Human Energy Field.
Lance Armstrong’s Chiropractor, Dr. Jeff Spencer, back in
2000-2001 was looking for a Bio-Energetic Advantage for his
clients which also includes the U.S. Postal Team that
participates in the Tour de France and others like Tiger
Woods etc. He decided upon 2 pieces of technology the SCIO
(Scientific Consciousness Interface Operating System and
the St-8 Light Beam Generator. These two technologies work
incredibly well together. The SCIO balances the subtle
energetic fields of the bodies and the St-8 cleanses the
Your Unconscious (Mind) is much more aware of Dis-ease
causing factors and how un-ease reacts with Subtle
Energetic Changes in the Electrical Bodies or Human Energy
The SCIO is the first energetic Device to test reaction
where neither the subject nor the Practitioner know what is
being tested and therefore can not influence the results.
The Unconscious of the subject responds to testing and the
measurement of this reactivity is extraordinarily accurate.
So the SCIO makes us aware of our Unconscious State and it
sees things long before they ever become a symptom.
The SCIO Practitioner can influence negative energetic
imbalances subtly back to balance and in so doing Improve
Unconscious Reaction to Stimuli.
Wellness or Health is the ease of flow of Energy through
the Bodies- the Physical Body and the Electro-Magnetic
Bodies of the Human Energy Field.
The SCIO can influence the quality of Air, Water,
Minerals, Vitamins, Amino Acids, Fatty Acids,
Carbohydrates, Thoughts, Friendship, Love, Respect, All
Emotions, Mental Stimulation or Activity, Spiritual
Stimulation and a host of other Nutrients back to balance.
All of life’s experiences are Nutrients. They can be
beneficial nutrients or they can be “Junk Nutrients.” They
can be Conscious or Unconscious choices. Each of us makes
our own Choices. We manifest our physical body. It all
depends upon our energetic state at any particular moment
and the choices we make. Change your state and change your
pattern of re-configuration. Relax / de-stress / anti-age
your state and rejuvenate your re-configuration process.
Return to homeostasis / balance / awareness and your level
of consciousness improves and wellness returns.
Detoxification is the key. It’s a process of both conscious
and unconscious response / reactivity. The smallest changes
can have significant results.
Continuing the same old pattern expecting a different
result is simply insanity! Remain in a stressed/negative
state for a pro-longed period and you are sure to manifest
We are here to progress not regress!
Nutrition is a Key
Our Energetic experience actual begins outside the body.
What Dr. Valerie Hunt calls the “Human Energy Field.” Dr.
Hunt, now retired, has been a Professor Emeritus at four
Major U.S. Universities. She started her journey as a
scientist and engineer who wanted to debunk and discredit a
lot of the “woo-woo stuff” out there and ended up
pioneering research into the “Human Energy Field. One of
her studies in video, captures the aura of a person eating
junk food and the aura of that same person eating wholesome
foods. It was quite a revelation to see how nutrition
affected the aura.
In my practice, I see three fundamental things that seem to
dominate our risk profile - Food Poisoning, Emotional
Trauma and Pathogens or Parasites.
When you consider that 95-98% of everything in a grocery
store is harmful to you. It might be wise to;
a) Take more of an interest in Nutrition
b) Read the ingredients of all products and discard all
those products that don’t have natural ingredients.
“Un-natural” ingredients are all those ingredients whose
names you can not pronounce. They are usually “Food
Additives,” they may be there for a reason but the reasons
don’t have anything to do with wellness.
c) Notice how your produce has been irradiated. How do you
tell? Usually they have a sticker on them with a number.
They look excellent on the outside but they rot from the
inside out and there is no juice. When you purchase such an
item, simply realize that you just purchased something that
is dead and life-less and has no nutritional value. In
other words, it was a waste of money. The purpose of
destroying the nutritional value of your food, we are told,
is to improve shelf life.
d) Avoid “processed” foods. They generally contain several
ingredients that are harmful to the body and are often
e) Reduce “refined sugar.” Refined sugar is poisonous to
the body and we have learned to love the poison. Of the
4000 carcinogenic substances in a cigarette, sugar is the
primary ingredient that keeps you hooked. It has affected
our body to such an extent that our taste buds now prefer
“junk” to nutrition. We are actually repelled by the taste
of something that might be good for us. The good news is
that once you have “weened” yourself off of sugar the taste
buds and the cells of the body recover and actually prefer
good nutrients and are now sensitive to excessive
sweetness. Often times the reason we may opt for sweet
junk is, psychologically we feel that, “the sweetness has
gone out of life. If you are some one who is prone to
sweets, as I was, simply have an awareness of how your
pancreas is being compromised and how you are now
potentially manifesting diabetes. Simply by having an
awareness and making correction without emotional
involvement can cause effects to disipate. If you are some
one who struggles with this craving and occasionally
submits, and the operative word is “occasionally,” enjoy it
because a guilt reaction can probably do more harm than the
f) Reducing Salt in our diets can have similar positive
results. A reduction of high blood pressure, hypertension
and stress is often related to the extent your food is
salted. Choosing an unrefined natural sea salt would be a
better choice. Choose unsalted butter. Learn to make and
use “Gee” and you might just discover that your cholesterol
levels are dropping. Having an awareness and avoiding
salted foods is another positive step to wellness.
g) Avoid trans fats. Always choose natural products.
h) Let me repeat the last point – Always choose natural
products and you can’t go wrong!
Choosing Supplements that are in liquid form and from plant
derivitive is Key!
Most of us, whether we know it or not, have issues with
Gluten. Gluten is a sticky substance in wheat that does a
great deal of harm to the digestive process. Refined White
Flour, Sugar and Salt are other poisons that we have
learned to love. We love our bread, our pastry, our pasta.
We have self-medicated with sugar because the sweetness and
intimacy has left our life. Or we have self-medicated with
salt in order to put more spice and passion into our life.
We have become self-medicating Addicts who are
dis-satisfied with our live's and our sense of tast has
become totally perverted. The problem is that Gluten coats
the inside of the intestine wall like concrete and prevents
absorption of nutrients into the body. Now you have what is
know as Celiac Sprue Disease or Malabsorption and you have
no awareness of it. No one has ever told you anything
different - least of all your Physician - who only received
possibly two hours relating to nutrition while at
university. The average person who has an interest in
nutrition knows more about nutrition than most Physicians!
You can be eating what you think is some of the best food
available and not be receiving any significant nutritional
value from it. You are actually starving the body of
The same is true of Supplements. For those of you spending
a lot of money on supplements you are probably wasting your
money because most, or all of the supplements you are
taking are not in liquid form, so that it is more
digestible by the body. Minerals in particular are usually
nothing more than crushed up rock in a capsule that simply
pass through you. According to Dr. Bill Nelson, inventor of
some of the world's best energetic assessment technology
that is used by Lance Armstrong, there is a 10 Trillion to
One chance that these supplements are actually doing you
any good! If the nutrients are reaching the blood stream,
they are most likely throwing the body out of energetic
balance. I have witnessed individuals who were taking over
40 supplements. They were in a total state of depression
and the body was totally confused. Why? Because there are
thousands of books thattell us that we need all of these
supplements on a daily basis and that we can not receive
the nutritional value from our food. The preach a mentality
of lack and fear and promote their product line as a means
to the holy grail and we have swallowed it hook line and
sinker. I can speak from personal experience when I
identify this attitude that, "If a little is good, more is
better," marketing approach. Its all designed to sell
product and live a shorter life. Once you begin to realize
the fraud that has been perpetrated on you, only then will
you have enough awareness to question what you have
accepted from others as being True and incorporated into
your Life Script.
For those of you who are challenged with weight issues,
simply stop eating any of the refined white poisons such
as; refined white sugar, refine white flour and refined
white salt and see what happens. This does not mean that
you substitute some man made poison such as Aspartame or
Neutrasweet for refined white sugar or go on a low fat
process poisoned diet. Always try to make natural choices
such as as cutting back on the sugar (or other ingredient)
and choosing an unrefined brown natural sugar. Most of the
recipes we have, are handed down from generation to
generation when people laboured more and realized less
about the impact upon the body - now it is time to
experiment with reducing the amount of sugar, baking soda
and flour in the recipe and substituting it with better
more natural products. Substituting white flour with Spelt
Flour is a much better choice because it contains much less
Gluten. Bakers like to use wheat because of the glue-like
nature of the gluten, that help hold the ingredients
togetherthrough the baking process. When I made a simple
decision to reduce the gluten from my diet, I lost 30
pounds of toxicity in 60 days and I am not a heavy person
to begin with. Over the next 3-4 months the concrete-like
nature of the colon breaks up and is removed as you
eliminate. Now the body has a chance to re-cuperated and
receive the nutrients it has desired. You will know that
the process is correcting as you observe correction in your
bowel movements. Colonics will tend to speed up and enhance
Expressing Gratitude is a Key!
It seems to me that ever since we entered this world we
have been conditioned to focus on the negative and not the
positive. When, what is required is to, “accentuate the
positive and eliminate the negative.” (Mills Brothers) Dr.
Masaru Emoto has determined in his research (Hidden
Messages in Water) with water crystals that the frequency
of Gratitude is more perfectly aligned than even that of
Love. These are the two most powerful frequencies, Love and
Gratitude but the greater of these is Gratitude.
Modern day medicine focuses on illness rather than wellness
and today we have a greater portion of the population ill
than possibly at any other time in history. If energy
follows attention and focused attention is intention which
results in manifestation; is there any wonder that we have
created the world that we live in. Our thoughts are
powerful. We are powerful. What we dwell upon we create. We
are dynamic. We are constantly changing. We can
re-configure ourselves and our world through our thoughts.
We simply need to consciously shift our thoughts from lack
and fear to Gratitude and Love and to express Thanks and
Gratitude for all that we have received and are receiving
as though we have received it, prior to receiving. And why
is this necessary? Because everything we create is created
within our electro-magnetic energy field outside the body.
Our thoughts manifest the subtle energies that create the
physical body. Improve your thoughts and re-create beauty
in your self and also in your world. It is my belief that
the Creator provides all of our desires through subtle
energy. Energy does not distinguish between good and bad,
positive or negative, only man does – these are controlling
mechanisms. We are provided with exactly what we think
about, meditate on or dwell upon. Together we can
re-configure our world simply by shifting our thoughts to
Love and Expressing Gratitude in all that we do. If we
improve our awareness of our energetic relationship between
each other, between ourselves and nature, between ourselves
and technology, between ourselves and breath ( which is
spirit) and we do so without judgement, without emotional
attachment, simply observing and making correction; the
lack and fear will dissipate and we will move toward Love
and Gratitude. As we make correction, we affect all of
those who come into contact with us. Dr. Fred Bell, the
great grandson of Alexander Graham Bell makes the point
that as we raise our level of consciousness, we affect at
least a 1,000 (thousand) other people. We can change our
state. We can change our world. Let’s vow to do it
Until next time, enjoy the process. Enjoy the process of
re-awakening to Joy, Love, Peace, Harmony and Gratitude!
Gratitude and Love
