(5) Reality Shifters Q & A
Q: What is
I am proud to announce this month's winner of the Reality
Shifting Award, for recognition of demonstrating consistent
excellence in web site content and design, while helping
people shift their reality in a positive direction:
A: I mention
synesthesia in my book, AURA ADVANTAGE, because it's a very important part
of sensing energy fields around us. When I was an infant, all my senses
seemed interconnected, especially sight and hearing. This way of
experiencing the world is known as "synesthesia," a Greek word that means
"perceiving together." Sudden noises would appear as sharp bursts of color
that would flash through the house, sometimes even just a bit before the
sound itself was heard. Waves of color would wash around my mother and
father, so I could see their moods from the colors even before I could
focus on the details of their faces. We can intuitively see, hear, smell,
taste, and feel things around us that coincide with our other senses, and
discover important additional information about our surroundings this way.
You can hone your synesthetic skills by intentionally depriving yourself or
one sense at a time, while noticing what you discern with your remaining
senses. With ear plugs in your ears, notice what you imagine you can see,
feel, smell and taste around you. With a blindfold over your eyes, imagine
what you can feel, hear, taste and smell. When you next reintegrate your
senses, notice whether you've gained some new cross-connections and become
just a bit more synesthetic!

The goal of the MixSig.net site is to bring synesthetes and
non-synesthetes together to learn about synesthesia.

Meir Schneider's Yoga for Your Eyes
by Meir Schneider
Worth It's Weight in Gold!
The MEIR SCHNEIDER'S YOGA FOR YOUR EYES DVD contains all the
essential exercises and materials needed to dramatically improve your
vision. After doing just a few of the exercises on YOGA FOR YOUR EYES, I
noticed I could focus much more easily on fine print, and my eyes felt
relaxed and refreshed! Meir Schneider's instructions are clear and easy to
follow, and his life experience of going from being born legally blind to
being able to pass his driving exam is inspirational.
The DVD format is much better than reading books or tapes for demonstrating
eye yoga, because it's the closest thing to attending a yoga for the eyes
workshop. Each technique is clearly demonstrated, so it can be quickly
learned and easily remembered. I'd read about the Bates methods of sunning,
palming, shifting, and swinging... but never before been able to so quickly
master these techniques. Explanations are provided for why these and a
couple of other techniques make such a big difference in vision, and why
modern lifestyles often tend to unnecessarily cause our vision to
deteriorate over time. Schneider explains how we can improve our visual
perception as we get older by learning to exercise and relax our eyes on a
YOGA FOR YOUR EYES is worth its weight in gold; do yourself and your eyes a
huge favor and watch this DVD as soon as possible!
The Inspired Heart
An Artist's Journey of Transformation
by Jerry Wennstrom
Trusting the Deep Intelligence of the
Artist Jerry Wennstrom shocked the New York art community in
1979 when he destroyed his paintings at the pinnacle of his illustrious
career. Guided by an inner passion to connect directly to divine
consciousness, Wennstrom gave away his possessions and began a journey
based on complete surrender to life experience. THE INSPIRED HEART shares
Wennstrom's personal journal of how he lived for years in a state of grace
and faith, discovering divine intelligence and inspiration in a wide
breadth of experiences. Wennstrom at various times fasted, experienced the
sublime joys of sharing special moments with neighborhood children, and
faced potential muggers with loving kindness... to receive loving kindness
in return. THE INSPIRED HEART shows us how, "Enlightenment is not a grand
finale that leaves us blissfully risen, Buddha-like, above the suffering of
the world. It is a deep and unconditional surrender to what already exists
and total trust in the larger inherent intelligence, which is willing to
lead the way."
I love the color pictures of Wennstrom's art in the middle of this book,
and the way Wennstrom's autobiographical short stories weave themselves in
dreamy fashion through the places and times of his fascinating life. THE
INSPIRED HEART shares the raw and simple beauty of one man's pure heart as
it shows us how miraculous, magnificent and rich our lives can be when we
let go of everything and allow ourselves to be fully present in this
