New Book Seeks to Enlighten Readers to Their Greatness
The website for Journey to the Heart, author Ernesto Ortiz's organization dedicated to spiritually inspiring others, defines Akashic Records
as "the individual records of a soul from the time it leaves its point
of origin until its return." Helping individuals to understand this
concept, Ernesto delivers his new book, The Akashic Records: Sacred Wisdom for Transformation.
With his deep connection to the Akashic Records, Ernesto guides readers
on a sacred journey into their own Akashic Records. "The Akashic
Records" provides a thorough map of the energetic territory designed to
help readers explore the many ways they can utilize the Akashic Records
and the guidance of the masters and teachers. Ernesto was first
introduced to the Akashic Records by Edgar Cayce, a renowned figure in
the realm of body, mind and spirit health. Ernesto went on to devote
much of the next 25 years of his life to the field, eventually becoming a
The Akashic Records is a book he hopes will have a profound effect on readers. The book is available at amazon.com, balboapress.com and journeytotheheart.com.
Anyone who has ever gazed at a spider's web,
meditated on a mandala or Yantra, visited a pyramid, walked a
labyrinth, or peered through a microscope has felt the effects of sacred
geometry. Now the Sacred Geometry Oracle Deck introduces an entirely
new way for you to gain access to this wisdom and unlock its power. The
set includes a 128-page 6X9 paperback book with 64 full-color oracle
cards. See this page for more info or to order.
The Medicine Wheel of Plant Uses - The East: Sweet & Bland
by Susun S. Weed / Herbalist, Author, Founder of the Wise Woman Center and Ash Tree Publishing
The Medicine Wheel of Plant Uses begins in
the East, place of the rising sun, place of dawning and beginnings,
place of birth. I define the plants of the east as: Plants that, by
themselves, sustain life when eaten daily in any amount. The only plants
that fit this definition are the seeds of certain grasses. Grain alone,
unlike all other foods, and without assistance, is enough to sustain
us. Though we wish not to live by "bread alone," much of the world does
get along eating nothing but a bowl of rice or millet a day. Grain
supplies sweet, bland carbohydrates, some needed proteins (though
incomplete), some vitamins, and some minerals, and some plant hormones
(lignans, which are powerfully anti-cancer).

Try to keep things simple when analyzing a dream - or any other aspect
of your life for that matter. Less is always more. Dreams tend to fall
into four categories: retrocognitive (past life); other life (future
life); prophetic (a warning or a blessing to come which is
inspirational, factual or precognitive) or housekeeping (rehashing the
day's events, digestive upset, something on TV or consumption of
alcohol). Dreams that fall into the prophetic category are usually worth
exploring; housekeeping dreams should be discounted.

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and their Vedic Link
by Yogi Baba Prem / VedicPath.com
Virtually nothing seems to be known about
Patanjali the man. In some stories he is the son of Brahman, in others
he is born on Mount Meru. In India, Mount Meru is the sacred mountain.
It is said to be 350,000 miles in size, and is surrounded by 7
continents. Obviously this is a reference to the spinal column and the
nadis (streams of energy) of the body, which total 350,000. The 7
continents are a reference to the primary chakas. He is believed to
have written the text Mahabhasya which is a commentary on Panini laws of
Sanskrit grammar, which would clearly indicate that Patanjali was an
important Vedic Grammarian. In India, there is a growing opinion that
he also wrote under the name Charaka, and was responsible for the
Charaka Samhita the major Ayurvedic text. As Ayurveda is an upaveda
this provides a powerful link between Patanjali and the Vedic system as
