The Field of Potential
New scientific insights appear to have understanding of the quantum composition of the human body in terms of light energy and vibrational frequencies - explanations for 'spiritual' components such as auras and energy healing modalities.
             German scientist Fritz-Albert Popp’s discovery of and subsequent work involving biophotons has led to the increasing acceptance by the scientific community that the body's communication system is comprised of a complex and powerful network of resonance and frequency.
           All biological organisms, including the human body, store and use Biophotons - the smallest physical units of light (“weak electromagnetic waves in the optical range of the spectrum”). The human body constantly emits ultra low intensity light, in concentrations that vary with fluctuating bio rhythms and metabolic activity throughout the day. While the light intensity is about 1,000 times below the levels normally perceivable by the naked eye so that it remains undetected by most people, some individuals seem to have the ability to see the light emissions as an "aura" with possibly distinctive colours.
         It has been proposed that these biophotons may be responsible for the transfer of information throughout the body and thereby controlling virtually all the biochemical reactions (100,000+ biochemical reactions per second in each cell) occurring in the body, as well as for supporting its healing capability. Conversely illness would point to the body’s biophoton emissions being out of sync.
        In demonstrating the existence of the biophoton field (1974) Dr Popp proved that light is stored by, and emitted from, the DNA. The DNA within each cell undergoes constant contraction and extension in a coil-like manner causing it to vibrate at a frequency of several billion hertz, with each contraction releasing one single biophoton capable of carrying over four megabytes of information. This biophoton contains all the detailed information pertaining to all of the goings on in the DNA at that point, which is then conveyed to the other biophotons that it comes across in the biophoton field outside the body. Thus bidirectional communication and information transfer takes place between and amongst all the emitted photons within this structured light field surrounding the body, effectively making it the carrier of long-term memory. By transmitting the data sent out by the DNA and broadcasting back to the cells the information received from all the other biophotons from the body, this light field also regulates metabolic enzyme activity in the body.
        Popp’s research showed the light emissions of healthy people to follow set biological rhythms based on temporal factors (day/night; week/month) possibly linked to environmental factors or the earth’s biorhythms, whereas cancer patients lacked such rhythms in their light emissions which appeared scrambled, suggesting deficient or faulty cellular communication. Similarly, multiple sclerosis patients were found to be taking in excessive light resulting in confusion at the cellular level, while stress caused an increase in biophoton emissions.
        Interestingly, while cancer-causing chemicals are known to alter biophoton emissions, thereby disrupting the body's cellular communications, certain substances (eg mistletoe extract) have been found to have the capability to restore biophoton emissions to normal levels. Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine published a study reporting an almost doubling of mean survival rates amongst breast cancer patients upon administration of mistletoe extract. Another well known example of the phenomenon known as ‘photorepair’ involves destroying 99% of a cell (DNA included) using UV light; it has been found that simply illuminating the cell with the same wavelength but at a significantly weaker intensity results in the damage being repaired almost entirely within one single day. Understandably, several biophoton therapies are emerging or under development that are designed to reduce pain and promote healing based, for example, on stimulation of the body with specific quantities of light or using complementary tools that work with light to advantageously influence the biophoton field.
         So from where does the body draw the light? Popp suggested that the light stored in the body must be at least partially derived from the foods we ingest, whereby the light waves or photons in the food are taken in by the body and stored. The greater the biophoton storage capacity of the food and the higher the level of light energy its cells emit, the greater its nutritive value, quality and its potential for transferring the energy to the consumer. For example, consuming fresh organically grown raw vegetables and sun ripened fresh fruits, both of which are particularly rich in biophotons will augment your own store of light energy, consequently enhancing your overall electromagnetic field and increasing the levels of healing energy to keep you in good health.

The Power of Intention
Studies and experiments have proven that human consciousness 'changes' space.

In 1997 Dr. William Tiller demonstrated the effect of mind over matter in experiments designed to alter the pH of water merely with the power of intention, without the addition of any chemicals, by introducing consciousness into the experimental medium. First, electrical devices were imprinted by highly experienced meditators, with a specific intention: raising/lowering the pH of water. Thereafter the devices, wrapped in aluminum, were shipped to a laboratory 2000 miles away, and placed near the 'experiment target' – in this case a jar of water - and turned on. In this particular experiment, based on the original imprinted intent, the pH of the water was expected to be raised or lowered by at least 1 full pH unit, a difference large enough for the results not to be attributed to measurement errors. As a first result, the water's pH was unambiguously raised (or lowered) very significantly by up to 1-1/2 full units.
However, the truly amazing effects which became apparent upon the same experiment being repeated over and over again, proved that where intent is repeated several times in the same space, its effects eventually become permanent to the extent that the laws of physics cease to apply as they did earlier within that space! Tiller found that after repeatedly conducting the same experiment in the same laboratory, it became "conditioned" so that the experiment yielded the same results either more rapidly or more strongly, until eventually, the result would be obtained even after the device had been removed from the room.
Explaining what actually happened to the laboratory "space", Tiller noted, "The experimental data we gather seems to indicate that it raises what is called the 'physics gauge symmetry' of the room". Basically, in a 'normal space' (called a U{1}-Gauge space), according to the laws of physics "the magnetic force is proportional to the gradient of the square of the magnetic field”. However in the "conditioned space", the repeated (intent influenced) procedures cause the aforementioned law of physics to change by raising the gauge symmetry in that space (from the U{1} Gauge to an approximation of what is called the SU{2} Gauge). In one location the alteration in the space of the room reportedly remained stable well over a year.

Vibrational Shifts
Energy healing techniques such as therapeutic touch have found recognition in the nursing profession. In 2005-2006, the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association approved the diagnosis of "energy field disturbance" in patients, reflective of what has been variously called a "postmodern" or "anti-scientific" approach to nursing care. This approach has been strongly criticised. Believers in these techniques have proposed quantum mystical invocations of non-locality to try to explain distant healing. They have also proposed that healers act as a channel passing on a kind of bioelectromagnetism which is similar to vitalistic pseudosciences such as orgone or qi.
Writing in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, James Oschman introduced the concept of healer-sourced electromagnetic fields which change in frequency. Oschman believes that "healing energy" derives from electromagnetic frequencies generated by a medical device or projected from the hands of the healer.

Mahadasha Changeovers
 Passing the baton
When one Mahadasha finishes and the next one begins, it takes some time before the full extent of the energy of the new dasha manifests itself. As the quality and intensity of the previous mahadasha begins to decrease, the significations of the new dasha begins to intensify. This interwoven period is called 'Dasha Sandhi'. Sandhi meaning 'seam' - (as in two pieces of cloth stitched together)
During sandhi, neither the outgoing dasha nor the incoming one effect the native with strong manifestations as neither one is in full strength.
The sandhi periods are an important consideration in predictive techniques especially for the extra long dasha periods of Venus, Mercury and Saturn.
To get a ball park estimation of the length of the sandhi period, add the total length of the two maha dashas and calculate it's ten percent. This will be shared equally by both the outgoing and the incoming dashas.
for example: moving from Venus dasha to Sun dasha - 26 years (total of the two dashas- Venus 20 years and Sun 6 years) or 312 months. Next, get the 10% of 312 months - which is 31 months and 6 days (approx). This will be shared by both dashas equally. Therefore the last 15 months and 3 weeks (approx) of the Venus dasha are feeble in their venusian quality and the upcoming Sun dasha would not get to full strength till after the initial 15 months and 3 weeks (approx) have passed.

Cellular Interface
Cell biologist - geneticist Dr. Bruce Lipton’s ground-breaking research has shown that conventional medicine has been operating on invalid scientific knowledge based on the mistaken belief that genes cannot be changed and therefore have the power to control our biology, our health and lives, essentially promoting the misperceptions designed to make us victims of genetics.
         Through experiments involving genetically identical cells being exposed to different environments, Dr. Lipton demonstrated that while culturing one set of cells under certain environmental conditions caused the cell to express itself as a muscle cell, a genetically identical cell subjected to different environmental conditions resulted in the expression of a bone cell. Similarly, placing a culture of cells in an adverse environment causes the cells to get sick and die, but when the same cell culture is transferred to a healthy environment, the cells immediately begin to recover and proliferate. These prove that cells are programmable in response to the information they read from the environment.
         Contrary to conventional thinking, it was further demonstrated that the cell membrane rather than the DNA nucleus serves as the cell’s centre of intelligence. The human cell essentially behaves like a sophisticated programmable (read-write) device, where the cell membrane operating as the information processor much like a computer microprocessor, reads the surrounding environmental data (ie the signals received from our consciousness) and accordingly adjusts the expression of the genes to match the needs of that environment by writing/rewriting the DNA code which determines the cell’s biology. It follows by extension, that the human body with its 50 trillion cells will get sick and start to die when subjected to an adverse environment, but has the capacity to regain health and flourish when placed in a healthy environment. This implies that our state of health is a reflection of the environment that we either choose to be immersed in or that we perceive. Therefore it is possible to reprogramme our DNA, our personal blueprint, by redesigning mental models, adjusting our emotions and accessing higher states of consciousness, in order to achieve our desired objectives.

VEGETARIANISM
Some often wonder about vegetarianism. Can one eat chicken? '...but fish should be ok, right?' -No that's wrong.
Those who eat fish or chicken are non-vegetarians.Vegetarians do not “discriminate” based on the animal’s size, flesh colour, age or habitat. A vegetarian is someone who eschews all animal flesh (including the flesh of sea animals) and follows a diet that is essentially plant-based, comprising of vegetables, legumes, fruits, etc., either with or without the consumption of dairy products or eggs.
Earliest records attribute the origins of vegetarianism to ancient India and to the ancient Greek civilisation established in Greece and southern Italy. In India vegetarianism can be traced at least as far back as 500 BC, coinciding with the spread of Buddhism and Jainism, religions whose preachings incorporated the principles of “ahimsa” or non-violence, with Hindu scripture and sacred texts including the Upanishads, Vedas, Dharma Shastras, and Yoga Sutras, all favouring the practice of vegetarianism.
Today, for a variety of reasons, vegetarianism has gained currency as a global movement, embraced by a galaxy of personalities and celebrities of every stripe, many, enthusiastic spokespersons for their favourite cause célèbre. Whatever the motivation, be it religious belief, respect for animals or all sentient life, or other ethical, political, health, environmental, cultural, aesthetic or economic considerations, the overall health benefits of adopting a vegetarian lifestyle are no longer in question.
In fact, the all too popular myth regarding the nutritional inadequacy of vegetarian diets has long since been dispelled with the progressive shifting of scientific discourse from concerns about their nutritional efficacy to elaborating their various health benefits and disease prevention applications.
According to both the Dietitians of Canada and the American Dietetic Association, a vegetarian diet (at all stages of life including during childhood) that’s well-planned is "healthful, nutritionally adequate, and provides health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases."
With regard to children, the American Dietetic Association confirms that vegetarian and vegan diets can meet all nitrogen needs and amino acid requirements for growth, recommending that children’s diets contain sufficient calories to support growth and provide reliable sources of key nutrients, such as iron, zinc, vitamin D, and vitamin B12.
Recent studies have found vegetarian men and women to display, respectively, 30% and 20% lower mortality from ischaemic heart disease than their non-vegetarian counterparts. In addition vegetarianism helps lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and body mass index, while also reducing the incidence of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, renal disease, hypertension, Alzheimer’s disease and other disorders.
Vegetarian diets based on vegetables, legumes, fruits, grains, nuts, and soy products, with the optional inclusion of dairy and eggs, while providing all essential life-sustaining nutrients, proteins, and amino acids necessary for the body, also contain lower levels of saturated fat, cholesterol and animal protein, and higher levels of fibre, carbohydrates, potassium, magnesium, folate, and antioxidants including vitamins C and E and phytochemicals.

ECLIPSES            ☼
A Solar eclipse occurs when the Moon stands between the Sun and the Earth, cutting off the light of the Sun. A solar eclipse is always a new moon. A lunar eclipse occurs when the earth stands between the Moon and the Sun, cutting off the light of the Sun to the Moon. A lunar eclipse is always a full moon.

KARMA WILL FIND YOU 
Some believe that when the time comes, one needs to get one's self out there to make things manifest. If for example, the transits dictate that a specific event could happen, such as a relationship or a new job, then one must do one’s bit to facilitate these events. “Get out there and make it happen” is what is advised.
To suggest that we could make changes against what's reflected by the sky, willy-nilly and in short time, discounts the very premise of astrology. The specifics of time periods, transits and the interplay of these energies on one’s natal chart will trigger the event, if one has not consciously taken real and constructive measures to change the trajectory of the probable outcomes. The energies of the Universe represented by one’s astrological configuration, will make one be in the right place or condition at the right time. That is how out of the blue happens. The Universe will manifest itself as it wills. 
To assert one's free will to change the outcomes, one must make the required vibratory shifts at the core level with intention to manifest a different result. Energy 'healings' aid to alleviate negative or unwanted energies that may have strengthened over time.
Not all put themselves out there for ill-health, but it happens even to health conscious folks. One cannot totally prepare for these events.
Most people go to work each day and yet not reap the benefits in any way, one may consider just. Some are fortunate, others not so.
Sooner or later, karma is what one receives according to what one puts out. The universe is not random. Destiny is what must and will happen. One is born under specific influences, and inherits the destiny that was mapped for those influences. Sit in your room if you don’t really want to be out there. Karma will find you. When it does, let it find you prepared not passive.
