Another excerpt from Larry's as yet unpublished book:

The New Commandments: The Book of Life Lessons
Thou Shalt Be a Co-Creator  
just a piece of Chapter Three


"So, the path of the co-creator is to be awakened spiritually within, which then turns into your own deeper life purpose, which then makes you want to reach out and touch others in a way that expresses self and really evolves our communities and our world. Certainly, we can't do that unless we activate ourselves first. That's why, for me, emergence is the shift from ego to essence. That is so important."  Barbara Marx Hubbard


Our world has been referred to as a planet of "The Little Brainers," and Hindu scripture refers to this time as the Kali Yuga, the Iron or Dark Age. In truth we have been living in an age of virtual ignorance, but we're at the very end of that time and we are entering into a dramatically new and liberating moment.


So our planet Earth turns out to be an evolutionary cooker of consciousness from animals evolving to humans and humans developing to the next level of frequency, the "angelic" light body (see February Mid Month Issue, A Glimpse into the Next World).


I've heard said that humans use only six percent of their brains capacity while a pig uses a mere four percent. Only two percent smarter than a pig, huh..., now that's a humbling thought. It's not surprising then, that we spray our agricultural crops with toxic, carcinogenic chemicals and in turn feed them to our children. It's hard to develop a big ego when you think about it in that way. To be a co creator in the Casa Loco, this crazy house we call Earth, can seem like a momentous job. So here we are on this ass backward planet gathering our lessons of growth to graduate to the next level.

By recognizing your relationship with the universal power, higher self or the divine, co-creation provides the tools toward transformation. One can utilize visualization, prayer, programming or positive affirmation. As in believing the force is with you and a part of your genetic inheritance. The Essenes referred to all people as the sons and daughters of GOD and the bible states, "Those that have a vision for the future have a future filled with vision."


So to get on with this co-creation stuff here's what you'll need to do:


1.     You will need to open up your energetic system. In other words to raise your personal vibratory rate. Any spiritual technique will do; breathing exercises, Chi Kung, Do In (self acupressure massage), yoga sun salutations, deep tissue massage or shiatsu, meditation, prayer. The list is endless but the idea is to get charged or revved up. By priming the pump of your spiritual reservoir, you will have an abundance of charge (chi) to use for your vision.


2.     Next, you must train your mind to focus powerfully, one pointedly, as in deep, focused concentration. Meditation daily will help you profoundly in this regard.


3.     Then, engage your emotions. Get passionate about making it happen. In fact it's probably even more effective to see it happening in your mind and feel it happen in your body (appreciation, thankfulness) simultaneously. My office manager Kathleen Moran says it like this; your heart (feeling) and thought have to match up. In other words you and the universe (your higher self) hook up to make it so.


4.     Finally, set your intention in your minds eye and send out a continuous wave force utilizing every point we have made. Charge, focus, emote, and set your intention. It is this type of continued practice that will help manifest your dreams, aspirations and prayers.


"Thinking is to your intentions as watering is to plants."

Hilda used to tell us to keep a notebook for our prayers and intentions. After our daily meditation, she wanted us to take out our book and reaffirm our requests. Whether that be prayers for people struggling with issues and illnesses or special requests for our own needs. She would constantly say, "The only way God can have a clear picture of what you want kid's is to put your order in by writing it down." Hilda ardently believed in the power of what she called scientific prayer.


Remember the guy or gal you so vehemently desired to date in high school? You know the one that didn't even know you existed back then? This was before you trained your mind with meditation. Well, your thoughts about that person were registered in the great physics of our universe. Now, twenty-five years later, you go to your high school reunion. And there he or she is not only recognizing you but ready, willing and available. But now, she/he is not quite as attractive as you remembered. In fact, they aged rather poorly and you're questioning yourself, "what was I thinking?" It took twenty five years for your focused attention to come around to fruition. The secret to every action has an equal and opposite reaction, is a vociferously trained mind and will. The more you focus and meditate, the more quickly your intention will come to pass. This is a mental universe, every thought has a power. The more power behind your thoughts, the more quickly they will manifest and thus you are an active participant in co-creation.


One evening, I arrived late for Hilda's advanced class. I must have looked somewhat disheveled. Hilda glanced my way and said, "What's going on with you kid?"Well Hilda, I spent the day with the Realtor looking for a house," I sheepishly said. "Did you write down exactly what you want in your intention notebook?" "No Hilda." "How many times must I remind you kid's how to use your power," she scolded. "You probably missed out on the precise house you wanted by not using your power, write down what it is you want!"


That next day I gave my Realtor a detailed description of what we really wanted. My note to the Realtor said a blue house with central air conditioning and wall to wall carpeting. It must be on or across from Lake Musconnectcong with an acre of property that is flat and easy to manage and all for a specific dollar amount. My Realtor laughed and said facetiously," Is that all you want?" Not two days later, he called and said, "I can't believe it! I found your exact house and it's on the street named after you, Lawrence Avenue". The blue house was across from the lake with all the accouterments requested exactly and it was magnificent. We immediately put down a deposit, only to find it was sold four hours prior to our getting there. When I told Hilda, she busted up in laughter. "Good lesson, huh?"


The lesson: This is an interactive universe, the more clear your intention, the more luminous your vibrations, the quicker you will reap what you sow, have big dreams!

It truly very important that we develop our healing abilities so that we can successfully support our own inner journey. Worldwide, the first level of Reiki training, or Reiki I, is often the key that opens the healing door for many seeking healing. For those who practice Reiki daily, their lives are forever positively changed, with immediate, lasting and often miraculous results. The Reiki I and Reiki II classes offered by the New Jersey Massage Continuing Education program are a traditional Usui Reiki training where you learn to do hands-on healing within the first hour of class. All the teachings are given as specific healing techniques, including mental, emotional and spiritual healing. Reiki I focuses on learning practices to heal yourself; Reiki II focuses on learning practices to heal others.


A manual which gives the class teachings in printed form is included for each level of training. Prerequisite for Reiki I is the commitment to a daily Reiki healing practice on yourself.


Betsy Browder is a traditional Usui Reiki Lineage teacher who has taught Usui Reiki to groups and individuals around the U.S. She has been trained in traditional Usui Reiki by being apprenticed to a Lineage teacher. She has practiced Reiki daily for over twenty five years. She is also an ordained Interfaith minister and university graduate.

A compilation of great thoughts for health and wisdom.
by Larry Heisler, M.A., LMT


The University of Colorado Cancer Center recently reported that grape seed extract was highly affective in tests battling colorectal cancer. The report stated

"that the more aggressive the cancer cells are, the more effective the grape extract works at targeting and stopping the growth." The lab of Rajesh Agarwal, PhD, released the following statement, "We've known for quite a while that the bioactive compounds in grape seed extract selectively target many types of cancer cells."

Just F.Y.I., we've been selling and personally taking a terrific product made by my friends at Hollywood Health Products. These are only sold to health professionals and we sell it in our offices and through the mail for our clientele. It's called Resveratrol Supreme, check out the ingredients. Brilliant...


Resveratrol Extract 20%.......300mg.
Pomegranate Extract 50%....100mg.
Red Grape Skins......................100mg.
Mulberry Fruit Powder..........100mg.
Grape Seed Extract..................100mg.


I've recently come upon a how to blog that teaches you how to make many interesting and useful things such as a homemade honey mint mouthwash recipe, How to make Lavender Vinegar and Health uses, Home made Vapor Rub, Herbs For Memory, Concentration And Mental Focus, Baking soda free homemade Deodorant, How to make your own Shaving Cream, even Homemade Pain Relieving Cream. There was so many more that I started spending time reading. I love herbalists and America is a botanical wonderland. I have a late friend named Pete Mascia, who was an Eagle Scout. He would take a group of us out into any backyard and he'd begin his discourse by pointing to the tree's and foliage and saying, "This is God's pharmacy." Then he would tell you what every plant, tree, bush, shrub, weed, and flower were used for. It made all of life special, unique and included, right down to the lowliest in the plant kingdom, everything was important for something. It was as if Pete was a holder of the sacred universal knowledge, at least plant wise. He studied with the famous Tracker down in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey.

For those that like aromatherapy and essential oils, check out this company... I've experienced some great essential oils in my day, from Jurlique to Young Living and Aura Cacia but this companies oils are on a whole different level... 


Homework assignment:   Check out this formula below, think about what cold symptom each item addresses.


Chest Cold tea:
1 Large onion (sliced)
1/2 Cup Dried Mullein Flowers
7 Cloves Garlic (crushed)
2 Tablespoons (Crushed or grated) Horseradish
2 Tablespoons Fresh Grated Ginger
2 Tablespoons Honey
Apple Cider Vinegar
Green or Earl Grey Tea

Fill jar with layers of these ingredients until full. Then top with Apple Cider Vinegar Refrigerate and use after 24 hrs.
When Ready to use make a hot Cup of Tea mix 2-3 Teaspoons in tea or Take 2-3 teaspoons of the juice 2-3 times daily.
Keeps for 6 Weeks.

  ONE MORE TIME: Hear  Prof. Peskins assertions that Fish Oil ABSOLUTELY does not work citing the last 20 MAJOR studies as definitive evidence. Furthermore the professor flatly states that science clearly shows that fish oil at room temperature immediately becomes rancid. IF YOU TAKE FISH OIL FOR INFLAMATION OR ANY REASON THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT, GIVE A LISTEN! 

FYI...I take the vegetarian formula TOTAL EFA's from Health From the Sun. It contains a wonderful combination of Omega 3's and 6's. Check it out on our website store.
