Heart Health Concoction

So if you’ve read some of my other posts, you’ve known I’ve had heart issues.

Doc says I’ve got Prinzmetal Angina.

I’ve tried a bunch of stuff and I’ve found two things that work:

Nitroglycerin

“The Concoction”

I’m not a doctor. I’m just a guy sharing what’s worked for me.

After my heart episode/experience in Missouri, I went to the doctor and they tried blood pressure medication because it’s a vasodilator, meaning it dilates the blood vessels. Basically what I needed.

So I took the damn stuff.

And I went from perfect blood pressure to hypertension.

The doctors had never heard of that. The pharmacists had never heard of that. And one pharmacist even checked one of the big reactions databases, privy only to pharmacists, and the database didn’t even show a known reaction of the medicine ever shooting your blood pressure up 30 points. My diet had been the same. I didn’t take anything new. No other medicines. Then boom.

Having your blood pressure shoot up 30 points in 30 minutes doesn’t feel good btw.

So, I said screw it. The doctors hadn’t been able to help me in over fourteen years–except for in the beginning with nitroglycerin, which gave me a MASSIVE headache–the alternative doctors hadn’t been able to help me.

But I got my answer from prayer.

Here goes:

I was told in the prayer that I would need a combination of wheatgrass, saw palmetto, and 1.5 oz of red wine. Mix ‘em together (except the saw palmetto, it’s in pill form) and drink and try not to gag.

Sometimes, I think God has a sense of humor.

I’d never tried alcohol. I didn’t want to try alcohol. Alcoholism runs in my family, and I was afraid of what would happen. It’s also against religious guidelines I’ve followed since I was a kid.

I even told God in a prayer “I don’t want to try red wine.”

“It’s your choice, but those three ingredients are what will make you feel better and allow you to heal.”

“Well, then I think I’ll try something else.”

And then I was helping my wife put our kids to bed (I’d just gotten home from Missouri where I’d just about died from a heart attack), and I picked up my oldest daughter who was six and just about dropped her. Each breath I took stole that much more out of me, until I was on the floor without any strength to move. My daughter lay next to me for about fifteen minutes, asking if I was okay and trying to comfort me.

No child should have to see their dad like that.

So, that decided it for me. I also had an answer to prayer and was told “Paul, if you’re not careful, you’re going to have another heart attack.”

I soon discovered red wine to be some of the most horrendous, nastiest, crap known to man. I mean, who the crap thought of fermenting grapes and then drinking it? And wheatgrass? Shudder.

But, about twenty minutes later, I felt like I’d just pumped two squirts of nitroglycerin sans the headache.

I think this concoction has literally saved my life.

It also tastes horrible, so I added this meal replacement shake from Garden of Life, and now I can handle it without vomiting. (I don’t get paid to advertise for them, or anyone else in this post! These are just what I use and found to be effective.)

I take it once in the morning (which is usually when I have the most pain) and within twenty minutes, I’m good to go.

After about a month I asked again if there was anything else I needed to add and was told Fulvic Acid and about a heaping teaspoon of ground Flaxseed.

I also got researching into polyphenols and found this guy: Steven Gundry, MD. I added his Vital Reds into the mix, and have been experimenting with that for the past month. So far, it seems to be pretty good.

Carpe Diem a.k.a. I Pretty Much Died

You’ve heard the phrase Carpe Diem. Well, that’s what this post is all about–seizing the day.

And here’s why: I pretty much died—you’ll see what I mean. It took nearly dying  to wake me up to the fact that my life needs to be lived how want.

Back when I was fifteen I had an allergic reaction to some medication, and it left me with what’s called Prinzmetal Angina. Basically, it’s where the coronary arteries spasm and don’t allow oxygen to get to the heart. It can feel mildly annoying to full-on “an elephant just took a dump on your chest and sat in it, and now it’s time to die.”

I’ve dealt with it for many years. Sometimes it hurt so bad no one could touch me, but after hundreds of EKGs, and just about every other test you can think of, the doctors basically said–just deal with it. So that’s what I’ve done. (I’ve since learned something that actually works! You can read about it here.)

Well, a couple of months ago, I was in Missouri spraying a protective coating on two domes at a fertilizer plant. The domes were next to each other and about three feet apart in one spot, which created a sort of triangular area that was accessible by door.

I had quite a bit of pain, but hey, it was nothing new. I’d dealt with it just about every day since I was fifteen. I’ve always just worked through it, and when I was at this job in Missouri, I did this same thing. I’d been in Missouri for about two weeks and had felt pretty intense pain just about every day.

One night after a particularly painful day, I was walking to that triangular area between the domes to get some of our left-over product that was in a five-gallon bucket. My phone had just died, and I had a hard time catching my breath. You can see where this is going.

The triangular area between the domes had about an eighteen-inch step up to the door. I stepped up inside the area and went to pick up the bucket, and I couldn’t. Now, I’m a strong guy and no greenhorn when it comes to pain. But this thirty-five pound bucket of left-over product, was my bane. I couldn’t lift it.

In fact, after I tried lifting it, I collapsed against the dome, and slid down on my butt. I’d had worse pain, so I thought I could just get up. I tried, but it sapped all of my strength.

My heart hammered clear into my throat, and I began dry-heaving. I couldn’t catch my breath. It felt like my chest and back and left arm was in a massive vice, and with each exhale it would tighten even more. The pain reached up into my neck and jaw.

I tried calling out to my brother, but could only manage a whisper, until even that wasn’t possible.

My heart began to slow, and the feeling in my chest became more liquid, and somehow sloshy.

I–

I saw a light.

It wasn’t a white light in a tunnel that you hear about so often. It was a beautiful green light, pulsating with love, almost as if the light itself were conscious. And I heard a woman’s voice say “Paul, it’s okay, I’m here for you.”

Calm washed over me. And acceptance. I was going to die. There was no fear; there was only love and acceptance.

How easy, I thought, to let go and have all of the pain vanish–to be done with it forever. For years I’d dealt with the pain. For years I’d dealt with disappointment and struggle and shattered dreams. How easy to let all of that go. How easy. How easy–

I’ve tried inducing out-of-body experiences over the years and have had some success. But the feeling I got then was markedly different.

My slowing heart, slowed, slowed, stopped.

I felt my spirt begin to detach from my body. It was like tendrils of weak glue, stretching and snapping off.

And then I thought of my beautiful wife and our three beautiful children. I pictured each of their faces, and thought of how much I loved them. Two weeks ago when I left would be the last time I saw them. What would their lives be like without me? I was the main source of income for the family, and we didn’t have much in the way of reserve. We didn’t even have life insurance.

My spirit detached more, and I was about an inch or two in front of my body. The green light intensified and so did the love and the comfort.

But then, I thought of their faces again, and I realized, just how tough it would be on my family to leave now. I’d grown up without my dad, he worked overseas and would leave for three–six months, be home for no more than two weeks, and then off for three–six months. I didn’t know him. It was hard on the family. But at least he’d been alive. My youngest was two-and-a-half and my oldest six. At those ages, my oldest would barely remember me when she was grown. But what she would remember is the hole of not having a father.

My wife would have to go immediately back into the work place. There wouldn’t have even been a month before she’d have to be gone all the time and give up our dream of working from home so that we could be with our kids and each other. She’s smart, talented, and gorgeous, so she wouldn’t have a hard time finding new employment; she wouldn’t even have a hard time finding a new husband if she wanted.

I realized, even though I could experience all of that peace, that love, that place of ease–I couldn’t leave my family. They needed me, and I needed them. Shoot, we still had one more child we needed to have together.

So, I chose to stay.

I chose to stay.

It was similar to squeezing my entire body, and yet not, but somehow I held on, and I mentally told the voice I’d heard, I have to stay.

“Even though it’s going to be painful?”

“Yes.”

The light receded.

My spirit snapped back into my body, fully.

And my heart began to beat again.

There’s a difference between “knowing” your own mortality and understanding that someday, maybe even today, you’re going to pass on. Fewer even apply that knowledge.

I quit that job. Don’t get me wrong, it was a great company, with great people. It was just so far removed from what I wanted to do with my life that it was time. Dome repair? Come on.

Life is filled with opportunities. It just took nearly dying to wake me up from the false belief that I had to have that job in order for my family to live.

Today, my wife and I own online businesses. We have an Amazon store, and we have an SEO agency called Search Spartan. We’re learning from some of the best people in the world. I’m working everyday on my fiction writing and bringing that dream into fruition. Most of all, I’m enjoying my time. I’m doing the things that I want to do.

Carpe Diem.

Oh, and I have life insurance.

Light Pulling

Have you ever looked at your life and felt there was something missing? Or that there was so much more that you knew you knew, but just couldn’t seem to grasp it?

A few years ago, I felt this huge hole in me that I was missing a part of who I was. I got pretty tired of the same answers I’d been given, like have more faith, read my scriptures more, pray more, meditate more–I was doing all of those things, and the hole only seemed to grow. I got even more tired of the self-help books and courses that didn’t have any of the proverbial fruit.

I’m not sure how many self-help books, or courses I looked into, all I can say is, I looked into a lot. Many of the courses I returned in part because it was either a regurgitation, or because it screamed hack to me. A common thread was that many of these programs or books would up-sell and say, in essence, “This is great stuff, but if you really want to go in depth, then check out my other book on the subject.” And so I would, and it would say the same thing: “If you really want to understand this, then check out this _____.”

In short, it got me pretty annoyed.

So, I basically said screw it, and decided I was going to figure out my own spiritual path that helped me fill the hole. One of these things was learning how to pull light.

Now, I was pretty familiar with meditation at this point, as well as our energy bodies. Heck, when I was a kid, I saw auras on a consistent basis (not the colors, mind you, just the white haze or sheen around everyone, which some call the prana field). I’d even seen chakras a time or two. Chakras fascinated me–and I kept coming across videos, blogs, books, courses, and other crap that said they’d show me how to use them. But they never did. So, like I said, I figured out how on my own.

I haven’t seen anything like what I’m about to share with you, anywhere.

So, stay tuned for how I learned how in my next–

Just kidding.

It’s all here. I can’t promise that’ll it work for everyone, because I’m not everyone. But there’s a good chance it’ll work for you. Or maybe it’ll spark an idea that’ll work for you.

Learning how to start using my chakras took me all of five minutes. Once I had it down, things started really taking off. Over the past couple of years, I’ve had more peace and happiness than I’ve probably ever had. My friends and family have noticed it. Acquaintances have noticed it. But most importantly–I noticed a difference, and have been filling that hole I talked about. In short, it’s been wonderful.

What you’ll need:

–A desire

–An open mind

–A quiet place where nothing will disturb you

–Zero desperation (desperation kills your ability to connect to anything higher than the    physical)

–A minimal knowledge of chakras, such as where they are in your body, and which direction   they spin

–Love

I’m going to break these down into a clear picture of what I mean, because I want to give you the biggest chance of success with this material. I also want to share this technique with as many people as possible.

I’ll also have a few words that contain nuggets, and which, I think will help explicate pulling light even further.

A Word on Price

I used to feel that this material should be free–and let’s be honest, at a buck, it pretty much is. Here was the reasoning I’d use–you don’t tell your child, “Well, sweety, I helped you learn to walk today, and let’s see, that’ll be five dollars.” You don’t do that. Instead, you teach your child how to use her or his body because you love them. The chakra system is a part of your body. I’ve seen chakras. I’ve felt chakras. I know they exist just like I know my arm exists.

But here’s an inherit flaw with the above reasoning: there still is a price. When my wife and I helped teach our children to walk, for example, there was the cost of time, the cost of priority, and others–all of which I was more than happy to give. But there was still the price.

So, what I’ve found is that by doing a small exchange, whether that be time, whether that be money, or something else, it becomes more personal. And the recipient is typically more open to actually read and later use the material–which is really what I want. I want as many people as possible using these techniques.

How does this pertain to pulling light?

There are a number of things, actually. If we use the example of teaching your child to walk, if you’re distracted, if your priorities at the moment are elsewhere (and by that I just mean that whatever you’re focusing on in that moment is your current priority, not your overall priority), that exchange of energy that builds a bond between the two of you won’t be there. It just won’t.

The price of this book really isn’t the money. It’s you’re time. It’s your attention.

But here’s the thing: when you begin pulling light, you are building a relationship with the divine, in a way that is both natural and beautiful. It’s also super powerful, and is, I believe, the gateway–or a gateway–to future bestowments of spiritual gifts. I’ll share with you some of the fruits I’ve seen and experienced by learning how to do this technique.

A Word on What You Put into Your Body

You ever read the book The Secret and read the part where Rhonda Byrne says she eats whatever she wants and remains the perfect weight?

I think that’s awesome.

I also think that most people aren’t yet in the mindset to exercise that much belief and power over their bodies and their food.

So with that in mind, watch what you eat. The purer the ingredients, the easier it is to pull light. It’s pretty simple.

I’ve experimented with this. When I eat a lot of donuts in a day, I can’t pull the light as well. When I eat healthy, then I can. I’ve also found that by drinking kombucha, I can access my higher gifts easier. This probably has to do with several factors, but one of those factors for sure is that probiotics basically talk to the mitochondria in your cells, which then basically tells your body to be happy and feel good. This is a HUGE oversimplification, but for my purposes in this little book, I think it suffices.

Fulvic acid is another thing that helps. It contains all of the trace minerals and basically allows your body to conduct electricity better (again, oversimplifying here), which means a much better/stronger nervous system, cardiovascular system, emotional system, immune system, and so on. It also detoxes your body of all the crap that’s in our current foods and beverages. A good fulvic acid is Sun Warrior’s Liquid Light, and another is Pure Fulvic Minerals. I don’t get paid to advertise for them. I just like them both. Liquid Light is easer on the stomach, but costs more (around $30 a month–but TOTALLY worth it!). Pure Fulvic Minerals is cheaper ($40 for a four-month supply), but you have to take it with food because it’s so concentrated.

I also like staying away from fluoride, which could just be me, but each time I use or have fluorinated products (be it toothpaste or water) I get a headache right in the center of my head–have since I was a kid. I’ve read lots of anecdotal evidence that it calcifies the pineal gland, but I haven’t seen the science. My philosophy is if it helps, use it, if doesn’t, don’t.

You’ve probably heard the saying “the body is the temple of God.” Well it is, and I’ve learned what that means after learning to pull light.

So here goes:

First of all, I got into a meditative state. All this was, was simply taking a few deep, full breaths, and letting the tension out of my body. I can do this pretty quickly in part because I’d used meditation for a while, and also because I’m a writer. If you find meditation difficult, check out some guided meditations and try them until you get the hang of it. It’s easy, and not supposed to be frustrating. If it is–stop–and find something that resonates with you. Mindvalley has some excellent resources–and I don’t get paid to advertise for them, so this is just my own, heartfelt recommendation.

Second of all, focus on one of your fingers, or one of your toes. Move that finger or toe. Now, really concentrate here: what does it feel like to tell that appendage to move? There’s a certain feeling you get when you tell a part of your body to move. Focus on that feeling. Zero in on it. What does it feel like? Don’t focus on moving the appendage, rather focus on what it feels like to tell that appendage how to move, or where to move. If you focus on the telling–and not the doing here–your nerves will begin to build up anticipation to transmit the message. It feels kind of interesting, and, once you move whatever you want to move, that anticipation will be relieved. But remember, it’s the feeling of telling, or commanding, your body to move that’s important. It’s easier, I think, to focus on moving something small so you really have to concentrate and not let the feeling pass you by. Remember, we all had to learn this as children–how to tell our bodies to move–but it’s become so automatic that we don’t even think about it anymore. So, if you can remember the feeling of telling your body to move–then you’re in business.

Third of all, focus on your crown chakra. Use that same feeling you use to tell your body to move–and tell your chakra to open up. You should feel it tingle and begin to enlarge, opening up. Then tell it to close. It’s the same feeling of telling your hand to open and close into a fist.

That’s it. That’s the whole technique.

Like I said, it’s super simple and takes only a few minutes to master–because once you remember how to tell your body to move, once it becomes in the forefront of your mind, you won’t forget it. With just remembering that one simple thing, you can feel each of your chakras.

Now, if you want to pull light into you–and I’ll tell you at the end of this post why it’s a good idea–then add a couple of things.

First, imagine brilliant, white, divine light. You can pull other colors, but I find white is the easiest to start with. So just imagine it–what does white, divine light look like to you? If it’s easier, picture something like Heaven. Then imagine that light beaming down into you.

Open your crown chakra, and use that feeling described earlier, to pull the light into you. It’s just like you pulling a rope with your hand, only it’s your chakra doing the work. Don’t make it complicated by thinking how is this supposed to work, and trying to figure out all of the minutia. There’s a good chance you don’t understand how your body even works such as how the neurons fire, but you can still move your body. All you need to know at this point is that you can–not the how. So, pull the light. You’ll feel it enter you. And it’s pretty awesome.

So, why do you want to do this?

How about having a spiritual experience every day? That feels nice.

How about lifting your mood?

How about boosting your physical strength?

How about helping someone feel better, physically or emotionally?

How about having deeper, more loving relationships?

That last two require one more step–beaming the light out of your heart and into someone else. So, pull the light in through your head till it reaches your heart, then use that same feeling to push it out of your heart. You’re basically creating an “L” shape, or the carpenter’s square–hmm, makes you wonder about those masons, doesn’t it? Anyway, also add in the image of divine light entering your head and going out your heart into the other person. The results can be amazing.

I was in something like a nursing home with my wife’s grandma–we’ll call her Elizabeth. Elizabeth shared a room with another woman, who had dementia. The woman with dementia, we’ll call her Jill, was super upset. Jill was swearing and blaming the nurses for her predicament and letting everyone know she wanted out of this “hellhole.” It got to where I couldn’t talk to Elizabeth anymore because Jill was so loud. Now, I wasn’t annoyed with Jill. I just felt compassion toward her. So, I quickly beamed some light into Jill by doing the above technique.

Instantly, Jill quieted. She apologized for her behavior. She said she loved Elizabeth and was so happy she could share a room with her.

Elizabeth had never seen Jill like that. Not once had Jill told Elizabeth that she loved her. Not once had Jill said truly kind things to Elizabeth. Elizabeth said it was a miracle.

I’ve used this technique on countless people to help them have a better day. And it works.

I’ve even used it on angry dogs to get them to stop barking.

I’ve even used this technique on finding lost items. So instead of seeing someone to beam the light into, I picture the object I need to find and beam the light into my mental picture as though the object is right in front of my chest. And it works for me.

There are so many practical applications of this technique–it’s just wonderful.

I hope this can help you as well.

All the best,

Paul
