Science or Spirit? The Art of Growing Young

How is it that some people retire at the mandated, government-regulated retirement age, while others seem to grow younger and retirement is not even an option for them?

Does retaining your youthfulness have to do with science, or is there something else - some magic elixir?

Ralph Maliphant tells his story and brings science together with spirit in a fascinating journey of discovery.

Ralph trained as a massage therapist at the Maitri Foundation at age 68 in 2003-2004, and completed an advanced year of training to learn the skills of Dynamic Bodywork.

He started training in the Rosen Method in 2009 and qualified as an intern in 2012, which means he is licensed to work on the public.

"People are seeking a direct experience of God, which emanating and non-dualistic forces of Nature can provide. Nature Gods can fill the “God Shaped Hole” plaguing society. Ancient cross-cultural Wind Gods/Goddesses offer persistent guidance, to restore faith in humanity.

In my effort to provide navigational tools for the generation lost, 28 cross cultural Winds of Spirit revealed themselves. Each had a distinct sphere of spiritual responsibility for guiding humanity. My phenomenological research spanned 20 years of direct shamanic practice and scholarly research. Faced with planetary extinction, it is essential to embrace new ideas and formats. The Wind Work® is the answer to helping everyday, normal people, find a working partnership with spirit. "

How Do You Measure Spirituality?

144

Question:

I am curious about measuring spirituality.  Everyone seems to talk about spiritual growth and enlightenment nowadays, but there is not much talk about the science required to measure these things.

I see so many people boasting about how spiritual they are, but then they say and do things that are completely the opposite of what they claim to believe or what they sell to others.

How would you measure how spiritual a person is, or whether one person is more spiritual than another?

Or is spirituality just a popular social mask with no basis in reality?

Spiritual Awakening And Strange Dreams

144

Question:

I am 34 years old.  About two months ago my life changed drastically.  I went to see a chiropractor for a number of issues, including menstrual problems, knee, back and neck pain, and acid reflux.  I have been to other chiropractors and knew what to expect.  However, I got more than I bargained for.

My acid reflux is gone.  My knee and back feel a lot better.  I am much less stressed and feel a lot more relaxed. 

The biggest change is in my spiritual life.  in the past I was interested in spiritual stuff and I read many books.  I got to a point where I thought I had all the knowledge, and I felt no significant difference in my life.  I kind of closed off that side of me and just got on with life.

A few weeks ago I started meditating – I never thought I would even try it, but I am really enjoying it and I can feel a change in me.  I have also noticed specific numbers coming up around me all the time.

Against that background I want to tell you about two very strange dreams I had recently. 

The first was when I woke up at 3am and felt wide awake.   I decided to do a guided meditation on my earphones so that I could get back to sleep.  That is where things got really strange.  I am sure I was awake, but at the same time I was not awake – it is difficult to explain.  I know I was lying in my bed, and the words ‘I am ready’ came into my mind.  Then suddenly I had a VERY intense feeling throughout my entire body – as if I was vibrating or being electrocuted.  It felt incredibly good, and I felt blissful and light.  My eyes were closed and I was unable to open them. 

I remember a high pitch noise in my one ear, and my hands were shaking so much that I could not keep them on the bed. 

I remember thinking that I was probably receiving some kind of energy. 

I then woke up and felt incredibly good.  I went straight back to sleep and slept for a few hours without any dreams, and woke up feeling refreshed and amazingly good.

The second dream, a few nights later, was much less pleasant.  I dreamt of being on a rollercoaster and being very scared.  I heard an evil laugh and was so afraid that I was completely paralyzed. 

I could see myself lying in bed next to my husband, who was fast asleep.  In my dream I was trying to wake him up, but I could not get even a word out.  I finally started crying and that woke my husband (in my dream) and all he said was that I must get back to sleep.   I finally woke up and wrote the dream down, and then went back to sleep again.

Am I right in connecting these weird dreams with the treatment from the chiropractor?

What Life-Changing Books Have You Read?

144

Question:

I have recently read two books that had such an impact on me.  They are The Book of Not Knowing by Peter Ralston, and Actualizations: You Don’t Have To Rehearse To Be Yourself by Stewart Emery.

I cannot tell you how these books have impressed me – I felt that both of them just touched a chord in me and permanently changed my life.

I was wondering whether you can recommend any books that have made an impact on your life? 144

I Have Weird Thoughts

Question:

I am in my early twenties and on the surface have a lovely life.  I have a good job, beautiful wife, nice car and big home.  I have every reason to be happy, but I am quite stressed.

The reason for my stress is that I feel lost in this world and I have crazy thoughts and questions.  I want to know why people blink, how we think, how we see and why we can only see ourselves when we look in a mirror.  Why is it that when I read I hear the words in my head without saying them out loud?

I have all these questions and they are taking over when I just want to live and have fun like my mates.  I want to be a good husband and provider, but it feels like the more questions I ask, the more stressed out I get.

How do I stop these thoughts?  I am supposed to see a psychologist to get some help.  What do I tell the psychologist?

How Do I Become a Spiritual Teacher?

 

Question:

 

I have read and learned so much on my spiritual journey and it really has changed me for the better. My problem is that I can now see how other people struggle and I want to help them get out of their comfort zone and have the same breakthroughs I had.

At the moment all I can do is share my intellectual knowledge with people but that seems to confuse more than to helps them.  As a result, people move away from me when I only want to help them. 

How do I become a real teacher without putting people off?
