Your Brain

Do you know what is pictured here? It is the key to your life, health and happiness and prosperity.

These are synapsis’ in you brain. What could you do without a healthy set of synapsis connections?

Nothing. You can not move your body, you could not digest your food properly to provide nutrition. You could not think clearly; calculate, compare, or articulate a point you want to make.

We are told that our brain diminishes with time. “Oh, you’re just getting old.” It doesn’t have to be that way. We are given the body we have for a specific purpose that is our own personal legend to leave after we are done with our body.

You are meant to have full use of your body and reach a natural death free from disease, occupational hazards, accidents and consequences that do you harm.

How do you know what will do you harm? By your stress level. By not giving your body daily strenuous exercise, plenty of water, the right nutrition, a positive attitude, fresh air and moments to be “still.”

You need all these things everyday.

My work is that of a research librarian who supplies a source (link) to the information you need next. Information, steps and tools to grow in stature. Ways to feel larger, to stand taller and make a larger impact. I have plenty of source material along with several teams of people who are doing on-going research about living a full life.

This is not ego-driven, pump up cheerleader motivation. It is what you need to go from where you are right now to where you, to-date, have not even imagined you could go. Everything is available to you. I can prove to you the ease at which you can ask and receive your heart’s desire.

Wanna Hide?

I’m so sorry. What else can I say?  I can say how I feel. Lament the people whom we lost. I suggest, we must process these losses. Admit it is with great sadness/shock/tears to learn about innocent children victimized by violence. 

Let’s admit it effects us deeply; despite our inability to fix it so it never happens again. How do we keep the resolve? How can we help? What can we do to end the violence? 

  1. Acknowledge that we are very sensitive humans. We can take just so much violence before it starts to really hurt the majority of us.
  2. Speak about what needs to be done to remedy this. To send love in response to hate. To take the higher ground.
  3. Get satisfied by contacting those who are working to reform the system. Every part of a system feeding us images, sounds and emotional messages that shock our senses as entertainment. Propagating sickness for its shock value and leaving sick people without help. 

Our sensitivity is what will heal this for good. It determines or behavior going forward working with the universal law of cause and effect. We have the power to influence. We have the sensitivity to know someone is hateful or mentally ill. 

Suit yourself by lamenting these senseless losses with your friends and family. They may also be hurting and just not speaking up. Process these atrocities for what they are,  as part of the society we either tolerate or change. All the more reason to take the higher road.

Let me give you a conversation-starter to help view this from a wider perspective; reference my chart: Grow To Be Abundant and Prosperous, Eight Levels of Awareness and Peace.

These are levels of character for the sake of growth, all we do is grow, best case scenario. Simply email me: info@pashacoach.com. You have the power to unsubscribe anytime you wish. Please let me know you’ve requested this chart from my blog.

We need to better understand what’s happening here. Don’t be hard. Acknowledge your sensitivity to this world. It is what will heal us.

What – How – Why

Secretly, I have been making decision with the use of my intuition and information both, since childhood. For this reason it is hard for me to put it into words. Like trying to describe sunshine.

I thought perhaps I was psychic. But since I ask for real information, for the truest information to come to me for decision making, I felt psychic development was not the way for me to go. So I just kept moving along, day-to-day making decisions with the information I could find and my inner feeling about it.

The creepy thing about it was that, my inner feeling about it, would sometimes come with a picture flash in my head. Not always, just some of the time. That picture ended up matching something in the future. I saw it ahead of it actually happening.

Since writing a book about Intuition, due to have its book launch June 2022, I have read, all I can get get my hands on about intuition, wanting to know how other people are attempting to describe it in words. Validation feels good.

The Intuitive Way by Penney Peirce, “At its very best the intuitive process brings clarity and accuracy to ordinary awareness and transports you into an experience of awe about your own divine nature.”

Intuition is a gift, like eyesight. Not something we play with by asking to predict the future, as we do when we speak to a psychic.

Penney Peirce, “Sometimes psychics are accurate, but their orientation is usually toward WHAT, not how and why; toward form not process.”

Without How or Why we miss so much. We miss why our people, especially why our children are acting the way they do. Without the “how” each one of us would be on our own, without information on how anything has already been done.

Peirce, “With intuition, trust increases, both in yourself and others. You can see the reasons for why things happen. You experience less anxiety-producing hopelessness and hopefulness about the past and the future and a more accurate awareness of your surroundings.”

We have intuition. It is our sense of knowing.

I will continue to encourage you to relax into this “knowing,” for yourself and for the end of suffering.

Penney Peirce has a great disclaimer, “This does not mean you should float through life, living for the moment and giving up on goals. Not balancing a checkbook or saving money. We are here to participate fully and take care of details. This is a world of action and accomplishment; doing and having, as well as being, are a natural part of the creative process.”

Power of the mind as powerful intelligence with an open box in the shape of a human head illuminated with a glowing beaming light bursting with sparkles as a symbol of human creativity and potential.

Get from Amazon: The Intuitive Way, The Definitive Guide to Increasing Your Awareness by Penney Peirce. The New Expanded Edition, Simon and Schuster, New York. 2009.

Terrible Devastation of Ecosystems

The Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia has had its waters warm from Global Warming. The result is the bottom of the food chain died off. At the top of the food chain are very large sharks. We remember this reef as extremely colorful with abundant life. It is now bleached white, no life.

We can save it if we act fast, now! Watch the Netflix Series, “Our Planet,” sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation; one of my charities. God bless them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9PeYPHdpNo

A World-Renowned Spiritual Leader Passes On

Thich Nhat Hanh, believed spiritual practices culminate into social practice. He became a Zen Buddhist monk at age sixteen. During the Vietnam War, his work for peace and reconciliation moved Dr. Martin Luther King to nominate him for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967.

Nhat Hanh brought Zen Buddhism to the West calmly speaking of peace within expressed in its most expansive way, asking people to apply it to their immediate daily life. He asked for a new word to be added to the dictionary. “Inner Being,” meaning a sense of self that expands to include everything living.

He said, “If you don’t practice sitting like a mountain, breathing like a flower, you can’t change a situation.

I read his book, You Are Here, Discovering The Magic of the Present Moment, when I was 22. It helped to create Pasha’s Salons to be a place for finding this peace within and then small, local groups to exercise that peace out into our communities.

You see, Hanh was near death often during the Vietnam War. Once his thatched roof temple was set on fire while he was sleeping in the corner on the floor. Another time a hand grenade was thrown into his sleeping area just to bounce off a curtain and explode in the next room killing five people.

“Peace is the root of your mindfulness practice. Each of us in our present day environment can smile and comfort those around us who are suffering.”

Seems unreal to have such inner peace that you understand violence without retaliation. However, multitudes of people have made this change.

This is my favorite quote:

“It is a miracle to be walking on earth, peace is every step. It turns into the endless path to Joy.

Thich Nhat Hanh was born in 1926, died January 22, 2022 at age 95.

Distractions to Soul-centered, Heart-based Love

Distractions pull us away from our desired focus. We are on our way to a new era, an age of intuition. From my research, intuition is accessed when we are in-line with our authentic self. Meaning your soul stays with you in your body. Take some time to calm yourself to the extent that you feel your soul in your body. Hippies called it being centered.

Congrats. Since you are still with me I want to hint at what might be throwing you off center, only you can sense this for certain. Loud and aggressive people or advertisements, sympathy-sucking friends or relatives, unaddressed fatigue, dehydration, hunger; thinking inside the box (sticking with conventional thinking), a negative mindset over a curious mindset.

STOP. You have the right to stop anything that pulls on your centeredness and leaves you weaker. No need to say a word. Well, maybe a polite, “Excuse me,” then take two or more steps back, turn and calmly walk away. This is not selfish, it is self-preservation.

If you still feel it, use your imagination to conjure up an oversized pair of scissors, or a hatchet or simply untie the satin ribbon from that thing/person to you. Then, delight in this moment with your soul in your body. It is beyond fortifying, it is exalting.

Now, the focus of my blog post. Love is all inclusive, no qualifications. Females are biologically predisposed to bear children. Breasts are made to feed babies. Included with this is her ability to know the invisible world of love. Effeminate males also sense this atmosphere of love. Like everything, it’s a matter of degree, a percentage at any point in time, any moment. She can show her man the moon and the stars. This is a higher priority to anything else labeled as a success, monetary, ego-driven ladder climbing status, a main focus on herself without her soul.

Men do not know love as women know it. Again, there are many degrees, levels of awareness.

As women, we need to show them love. While we are pointing out the harmony of the universe to our partner, we are in that space with him. Boy, does that feel good.

BTW: Men have many highly valuable purposes. With his soul in his body, he could ask himself what is there to do or say in this moment, then the next moment . . . and act on the message, measure the response.

Your soul is always with you. Calm yourself and invite it home, inside your body.

Slowly and Deliberately

Are you fast and furiously rushing about your extra holiday routine? Holiday shopping can be fun when you take the time to slowly and deliberately acknowledge what you are doing and why?

What we do . . . has significance. You give it that significance.

Here is an exercise in realizing your own limits. For the better part of a day, watch how you are using your hands. Everything from noticing them hanging in a relaxed state from the end of your arm down by your side, to working that screw driver without an electrical power tool to aid you. Notice the amount of stress various tasks impose on your fingers, knuckles, joints and wrists. Try not to use your fingernails as a tool for prying things open.

This chart illustrates the significance of your hands. BTW: You can gently massage your hands nearly anywhere, anytime. Gently!

The Holidays tend to prompt us to clean-up and fix-up our homes even when it is just for us alone. It is the end of another very significant year. You know I advocate for being real gentle with yourself. You have one body and one brain for your lifetime. If you give your body the respect it deserves, as a vessel, an amazing body given to you to care for and aid in your development, then . . . you’re good.

Power of the mind as powerful intelligence with an open box in the shape of a human head illuminated with a glowing beaming light bursting with sparkles as a symbol of human creativity and potential.

Your Mama would like it. Even if she is no longer with us, in your mind, in your memories of her, let her know you are slowing down and deliberately loving this time of year.

Dreams Turn Into Reality

I have lived for 6 decades. In that time I have had day dreams or visions of situations in life that were very different from present day reality.  I dismissed these day dreams as part of my overly creative and active imagination. The rub:  these day dream scenarios are systematically becoming true reality. I am being blown-away about this. Let me give you two potent examples.

I imagined Buffalo roaming free as they did before America was discovered. When the indigenous people where in balance with Mother Earth. In 1970, this was an illustion.

Today I read in my magazine, the National Wildlife Federation, that “in late 2020, ownership and management of the National Bison Range, in Montana, finally passed from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services (FWS) to the land’s original caretakers.”

“For tribal members the snow feels a bit warmer, and the hills, covered by clusters of evergreens, seem more poetic . . . it has been a long journey, but the Indian people, who say they are one and the same with the bison, are back caring for the land and its animals.”

Another example:

When I was getting my degree at Michigan State University I was focused on art and textiles of native, indigenous peoples, particularly in Africa and Japan. Industrialization has all but buried the arts and crafts of many ethnic groups. I have dreamed of their resurrection.

Several days ago I heard this recorded program on WEMU out of Eastern Michigan University. The show is Creative Impact with Deb Polich. This particular show was Discovering The Ancient Art And Craft of Oman Becomes a Lifetime Passion. 

It become a lifetime passion for Marcia Stegath Dorr, a UofM Grad and an example to us all.  A fire was lit when she saw the natives high level of art/craft being exploited by merchants buying them for a dime and selling them for $10.  The short version of Marchia’s journey first took her to the United Nations in 1990. Then to the Consultant to Omani-American Joint Commission, on up to developing an artisans’ marketing organization in Oman, onto the Advisor of Oman Ministry of Tourism: Dicertorate of Historical Sites Development, then in 2018 to the British Museum/Royal Ontario Museum/Oman National Museum Project. Most recently an producer in Paris, France as stepped forward to make a film to go with the museum’s presentation.

When you find your passion, hold onto it, follow it to its end. It will take to your ability to heal a wrong. The goodness and love in these two stories has me humbled out.

Let me know your thoughts.

Brains

Your brain is involved in everything you do and everything you are, including how you think, how you feel, how you act, and how well you get along with other people. Your brain is the organ behind your intelligence, character, personality, and every single decision you make.

Because of these facts, I have realized I cannot ask someone to find their inner peace with so many brain challenges in the way. This is why I joined The Brain Revolution with Dr. Daniel Amen and Dr. Joseph McClendon. They are well known.

After a good chunk of money and even more valuable time spent, devoted to learning and with on-going tutorials four nights a week. I am now certified by these two doctors, to spread their research around the globe. My coaching sessions now include the value of their life’s work. A fortune lies inside my offerings, now forming a full circle.

This is not a new idea. Around the year 400BC, Hippocrates wrote, “And men ought to know that from the brain, and from the brain only, arise our pleasures, joy, laughter, and jests, as well as our sorrows, pains, despondency, and tears . . . I am of the opinion that the brain exercises the greatest power over man.”

It is your brain that manages your money and helps you succeed at work. And it is your brain that pushes you away from the table, telling you that you have had enough (or that gives you permission to have the third bowl of ice cream). Yes, most people never really think about their brains, which is a huge mistake, because success in anything you do starts with a healthy brain.

In Brain Fit for Work and Life I teach how to create a brain-smart life with

(8) very simple concepts.

  1. Fundamentals of Success: Start with the Brain
  2. Drive Change: By knowing How Your Brain Functions
  3. Balancing Work and Home: Four Circles of Brain Health
  4. Motivation, Creativity, and Innovation: How to Ignite them in the Brain and the Workplace
  5. Lead by Example: Planting Brain Healthy Habits at Work and Life
  6. Overcome Negativity: Kill the ANTs (automatic negative thoughts)
  7. Fuel High-Performance: Nutrition, Supplements, and Gut Health
  8. Protect Your Future: Brain Optimization for a Lifetime.

You can use these concepts to improve your life and the lives of the people you serve.

Every Child Deserves to Be a Child

Today Malala Yousafzai is on the cover of Vogue Magazine speaking for the education of women in Pakistan. You may have heard of her as that girl who was shot in the face for wanting an education, seemingly a big threat to the system in her country.

She is the youngest person to be granted the Nobel Prize which she shares with Kailash Satyarthi, India’s lifelong social reformer who has many campaigns agains child labor in India. He advocates for the universal right to education.

He has many videos on YouTube, including his Nobel Prize acceptance speech. Some of the other videos must come with a warning. You will be shaken to your soul. Human trafficing is at an all time high! Why?

Those among us who are so lucky to have our children grow up without this threat can use our thoughts to help this cause. Where would we be without our education?

I have talked about the power of our thoughts. Since we are here in our non-threatened lives, we can ask our higher power to give more power to the work of this man. He has saved 87,000 children from slavery. His best friend was murdered in the process. It is them against the Mafia.

“The solution lies within the womb of the problem.” Kailash Satyarthi

I agree. He is now in my thoughts as an example of how powerful we are as human beings.
