2007-Release the Old and Step Out on Faith by J.J. Michael
In numerology, nine is the most fascinating number of
all the numbers because it is a mystery vibration. It
not only contains all the energies of the previous
eight numbers but always comes back to itself--for
example, 9 x 2=18 and 1+8=9. Metaphysically, the
nine generations from Adam to Noah and from Noah
to Abraham, listed in the Bible, indicate stages of
growth and development.
We are now finishing a nine year cycle that started
in 1998,and we will be only five years away from the
much anticipated 2012. The year of 2007 will be
about us releasing old negative patterns, such as
fear, doubt, judgement and jealousy,that have kept
us stuck in duality. For example, the old belief
pattern or energy form of power and control that
manifests war will cease. The war will either abruptly
end or be in its final stages. Humanity will free itself
from impetuous and ego-driven need to be proven
right. However, those who are strong advocates of
power and control will not go out without a struggle
creating conflict and confusion throughout the year.
For 2007, we will be about evolutional growth as a
specie.This will be a big year for humanity because
the number 9 vibration represents both completion
The true mission of the nine energy will be for us to
serve as Divine humanitarians on earth. To do this
we have to release negative vibrations and replace
them with peace and love. Since we are moving
toward a new accelerated time pattern to raise our
consciousness, many of us will experience the
effects of releasing psychological patterns that
held us in bondage. Initially, this will feel confusing
and stressful, but as new higher level energy takes
over we will feel better.
Global warming will dominate the news because
climatic changes will continue to affect our
planet and our lives. A grass root movement for
environmental changes for the planet will start.
Many new religions will spring up as individuals and
groups break away from established religions.
Spirituality will play a major role in the developmental
growth of humankind. Nine is a very spiritual vibration
and carries the energy of love and Oneness.
Global business transactions will have a strong
influence on our economy. We will be very much
interested and involved in worldly affairs in a positive
way. This is the year of being the "Big Brother" for
The work force will be required to work harder as
new or more responsibilities will be added to an
already stressed workforce, especially those in the
Women will demand more equality and men will face
emotional issues to learn how to align their feelings
Big Brother will be watching us as cameras and other
technologies are used to control the masses.
The Perfect Day in Nature will be 9/9/2007. A perfect
time for releasing and aligning your energies with
Nature or God.
I would like to leave you with this thought. In the
Book of Revelation there are two numbers whose
meanings have caused much discussion. These two
numbers, the 666 (6+6+6=18 and 1+8=9) and the
144,000 (1+4+4=9) both vibrate to a 9. The 144,000
were members of the Tribes of Israel. They were
referred to as the developed or saved humanity.
(Revelations 9:4). The 666, described as the "number
of the beast" (Revelations 13:18), refers to humanity
functioning at the materialistic unregenerated level.
Thus these two numbers mystically refer to the
evolution of humanity, either as "lost" (666)
or "saved" (144,000).
Life is based on numbers. Do you know your
numerical blueprint? How to work with your five major
numerical vibrations to live in universal harmony?

|How A Skeptical Doctor Transformed Into A Soulful Healer by L.S. Fuhrman
Steven E. Hodes, M.D. is a board certified
gastroenterologist with over 25 years private
practice based in Edison and Old Bridge New Jersey .
He also has a degree in Religious Studies. In addition
to his medical practice, he has devoted himself to
speaking and writing about metaphysics and healing,
with an eye toward helping people regain their
health, strength and the ability to explore life’s
challenges from a more spiritual perspective.
As a medical doctor, was it hard for you to
reconcile science with the science of the unseen?
Actually, at first it was. Science was my paradigm for
reality. It was the basis upon which I invested my
belief system. My exploration into the
paranormal/spiritual began when I was exposed to
ordinary/sane/rational individuals who had personal
experiences which defied my scientific background.
Still, they offered me a form of "evidence" that
was compelling and stimulated my curiosity to
Many people think of Metaphysics as being out
there. How do you think it affects our every day life?
The term metaphysics is often confused with its
popular connotation of the
magical/occult/paranormal. Metaphysical sections of
book stores contribute to this misunderstanding. In
actuality, the term refers to a branch of philosophy,
derived by the students of Aristotle. It refers to the
exploration of the nature of reality. My
understanding/interpretation of the term allows for
exploration of both science and spirituality as well as
philosophy in that they seek to understand the
nature of existence itself. There are subdivisions of
metaphysics as well. I also believe all human beings,
consciously or subconsciously seek answers to the
great metaphysical questions of existence.
Can people get along well in life without this kind
of spiritual understanding? Or do you think it is
imperative that we awaken to it?I do believe
that people can function fairly well as
atheists/agnostics. They can be compassionate and
moral beings based on their humanistic approach to
life. Yet when it comes to the issues of a higher
purpose to life's events -- whether people come into
our lives for a reason, dealing with the suffering that
surrounds us, the notion of a soul and its persistence
after death, dealing with the death of loved ones-
those who have a deeper spiritual belief system may
be able to find a more profound peace and
equanimity during their lives.
Do you think metaphysics makes heartache and
suffering any easier to understand?
Perhaps when we really allow ourselves to ponder the
great questions of existence and seek evidence for
their answers, we will find that there is a greater
purpose to suffering. Perhaps we will cherish our lives
as opportunities to overcome the inevitable pain we
find. Perhaps we can convince ourselves that this is
one of innumerable lifetimes. This understanding may
allow us to experience the pain, not as victims, but
as participants in our soul's spiritual journey. Such an
attitude will transform the pain of any one lifetime
and reduce our individual suffering.
Does it demystify the universe?
That's a great question. Metaphysics actually allows
me to 'tolerate' mystery better than I thought I
could. We all desire to have our questions answered
neatly and understandably. This is unlikely to
happen. Albert Einstein wrote about embracing the
grand mystery of the universe. He found it to be a
great source of energy by which to stimulate his own
journey to understanding. Mystics and scientists
share this desire to explore mystery while
understanding that this will never be accomplished.
Please elaborate a little on some of the topics
explored in your class.Contemporary
Metaphysics I explores the relationship between the
scientific paradigm for reality which has been in
existence since the time of Newton , Galileo and
Descartes with the changes that Quantum and
Relativity Theory have introduced. The general belief
that science and spirituality are incompatible
ischallenged by an examination of various topics such
as the near-death experience, after-death
communication, psychic abilities, the medium
experience. The emphasis is on "evidence" provided
by an examination of the material. Skepticism is
always welcomed as long as it remains open-minded
as regards the evidence presented. A medium
attends one class and offers short personal readings.
Open and frank sharing of deeply held personal
paranormal and spiritual experiences are encouraged.
The new course Contemporary Metaphysics II will
examine the issues of alternative/complementary
healing. The mind/body/spirit approach to disease
and treatment will be explored as well. Energy and
spiritual healing as well as acupuncture will be
introduced. A Reiki healer will be invited to the
course for discussion and demonstration.
What makes you believe in the near-death
experience?There is actually a large body of
literature with extensive research into the Near
Death Experience (NDE). I have personally
interviewed individuals who have had them as well.
There is something extraordinary and deeply spiritual
about them and they serve as a focal point for my
courses. They lead into discussions of the nature of
human consciousness/mind as well as issues of the
soul and its persistence after death.
Can a past life contribute to a current medical
condition?--Once again, there is a large body of
scientifically conducted, rational and sober research
into this exact topic. Dr. Ian Stevenson has devoted
his life to the topic of reincarnation and its effect
on physical conditions in a present life. There is
fascinating evidence to support this claim. Other
hypno-therapists such as Brian Weiss, MD, Michael
Newton, MD and others have noted psychological
carry-over from past lives as well.
What's the difference between a psychic and a
medium?A good question. A psychic claims to be
capable of understanding thoughts or events that
defy the usual sensory apparatus we all possess.
There are a variety of psychic abilities that we
discuss in the class and evidence exists that points
to the reality of psychic ability in certain individuals.
A medium is someone who claims to be able to
communicate with souls who have died and crossed-
over. As outrageous as this claim seems, I have
personally explored this topic and find powerful
evidence for its reality. Many psychics possess
medium-type abilities and vice versa but this does
not always occur.
Do we all have the ability to tune into our
metaphysical universe?I believe that we all have
this ability to some degree. As in any other talent
such as sports, music, intellect, there is a wide range
of natural ability. I do believe, however, that we can
all increase our abilities through training and
intention. The more we learn and explore, the more
we can enhance our lives. That's true of any quest
for knowledge or experience.

|Treasurers From the Earth by Jim Heinen
Obsidian is a volcanic glass that is formed as molten
lava flows over the soil. It is normally black and can
have many variations. Volcanic ash can mix with the
molten Obsidian to form Snow Flake Obsidian and
black Obsidian with white spots. When change is in
your life it can bring balance. Meditating with Snow
Flake Obsidian can bring deep-rooted negativity to
the surface where it can be dealt with and removed.
On occasion different minerals of many colors will be
trapped in thin layers of Obsidian to form Rainbow
Obsidian. This brings calmness and the joy of the
rainbow found in all of the vivid colors.
Obsidian is a very efficient grounding tool and root
chakra stone. It is a protective stone. It absorbs
negativity and directs it to Mother Earth where it is
processed and neutralized. Negativity is a distraction
to our mental and physical processes, leading us from
the positive direction that we intend to follow.
Obsidian removes the chatter that goes on in our
thoughts when we become overloaded or
overwhelmed. With the chatter removed, we can
concentrate on what really matters. Apache Tear
Obsidian can be used to remove grief. Indian folklore
records the Apache Tears are the tears of the
women who mourned the loss of their husbands and
sons in battle. They remove our grief leaving
peacefulness and acceptance.
Obsidian is a wizard’s stone. When seeking an
answer, gaze into the obsidian for five minutes every
day with the question in mind. Within three or four
days the answer will manifest in a peaceful manner.
Obsidian can be used to restore other crystals and
minerals that have been abused, returning to them
their former power. Placing the abused crystal in the
near proximity with the obsidian for an hour or over-
night does this. It is also used to cleanse other
crystals before a crystal healing session. This
removes any unwanted energies from the healing
crystals, unmasking the real healing power of the
crystals, like sharpening your tools before an
