Holosync Case Study #1: Valerie Wilkinson From Panic Attacks to Inner Peace This is the first in a series of 18 interviews with people who’ve gone deeply into the Holosync program. I’m posting these amazing interviews, one every two weeks, because so many people have asked me, “What happens when you use Holosync for a

I was in New York being filmed for a documentary this last week and was away from my email when I heard the news about Robin Williams’ suicide. An event like this really makes you think, doesn’t it? Robin Williams was one of those rare people who felt like family to almost everyone. He entertained us and made us

Most people, at some point, at least try meditation. In addition to the age-old spiritual benefits, thousands of research studies have demonstrated that meditation increases awareness, well-being, and equanimity… …relieves anxiety, depression and other mental health problems; increases mental clarity; and reduces the stress associated with many medical problems. Meditation, though, can take months to

Okay, I admit it. The word “sucks” is pretty strong. Perhaps your life doesn’t completely suck. And, yes, I know that it’s not a good idea to “focus on the negative.” The truth is, though, that everyone feels bad sometimes and we all experience people and situations we don’t want. And, for some, life does

I know, I know. You think I’ve lost my marbles. Everyone knows that POSITIVE thinking is the key to happiness. But as Dr. Phil says, “How’s that working for ya?” In my thirty years as a personal growth teacher, I’ve taught hundreds of thousands of students to focus on what they want. Some of them

I just reunited with a very old friend–after 25 years. I went to high school with Mary Morrissey, and then worked closely with her for several years when we were both in our early thirties. I have to confess that in those days I was a difficult and angry person–something I’ve described in some of

Bill,

Are those in power wanting the currency to fail so they can install a new currency? Of course the new currency comes with new laws that grant privileges (that can be taken away) as opposed to rights which are ‘god’ given.

When things get bad enough ie hyperinflation, the disappearance of our savings to buy hundred dollar toilet paper, etc. it seems then we’d all be willing to accept any solution even the giving up of our rights for ‘privileges’ in order to make the pain of inflation stop.

Is this some version of what the next 5 years might bring in your opinion?

My answer:

A new currency might happen. It won’t really affect what we are facing, though. It will merely be a smoke screen. I am skeptical about hyperinflation. I have no crystal ball, but I don’t see how that could be the final outcome. Here’s what I think:

I just had to share this daily post from Richard Russell, one of the many financial experts I read. Richard is 87, I believe, and he posts every weekday on his website. He is one of THE most respected financial experts in the world, and is read by heads of state, Fortune 500 CEOs, and nearly

Off the Deep End

Tuesday, 22 May 2012 by

Have I gone off the deep end in writing about social mood and some of what has been going on in the world? Does any of this have any connection to the rest of my writings about personal and spiritual growth?

Some of you have criticized me for not writing “strictly” about what you see as personal or spiritual growth. My contention, however, is that everything I’ve written IS about personal and spiritual growth. (If you’re new here, welcome—and, please consider reading the entire archive of posts from the beginning—I know, it’s a lot. You’ll be glad you did.)

If you’ve read my three most recent posts, you know that I’ve suggested that social mood swings from positive to negative and back again in definable waves. (Google “socionomy” for more info, or read my posts.)

Around 2000, one of the largest waves of positive social mood in recorded history peaked. Since then we have entered a time of increasingly negative social mood. This negative social mood will be (and already has been) interrupted by shorter periods of temporarily more positive mood just as the positive social mood that began around the time of the American Revolution was interrupted by intervals of negative social mood. The American Civil War and depression and war of the 1930s and 1940s were such times, as was the strife and chaos of the 1970s.

During times of negative social mood certain unfortunate/unpleasant things tend to happen. These include:

Isn’t it frustrating to be a person?

Have you ever felt frustrated by your spiritual practice? Where are those results you expected? Here is a letter I received from a student in my Life Principles Integration Process Online courses with that very frustration, along with my answer. First, his letter to me:

Dear Bill,

My question is: Why can’t I experience anything spiritual inside that validates, in a positive way, any practice or technique I have ever tried?  Just wanted to show you there is a question to all that follows (because there is a background story that must be told. I’ll keep it as brief as I can though.)

Part of this will be a bit of writing therapy for me as (at 63) my life, both inside and outside, lies in ruins all around me, I’m feeling suicidal, and I feel a need to yell at God.(Sorry, letting whatever happens be OK has run out of steam.)

So…Beginners mind:  In the early seventies I read Zen Flesh Zen bones which blew my socks off and changed me from an atheist who was profoundly disillusioned with life on earth to a rather naive seeker. After reading that book I knew that I had to find a teacher who could guide me to the Self, the God within (my favorite image is simply ‘freedom’ though.)

Tried everything I had access to over the next seven or eight years. No dice; nothing moved me or resonated anywhere but inside my intellect. God didn’t want to know me. Each time something didn’t work I returned to sex, drugs and rock’n’ roll… which did work.
