Mayan Number Card (The total of the Shaman Card Numbers) 11

ELEVEN Dissonance

Stripped down to essence, marrow of light beyond definition your soul takes/light.

Qualities: change, disintegration, letting go. Stripping away, complexity moving to simplicity

Eleven is the ray of dissonance, the foundation in self combined with the foundation of Essence Self, catalyzed by the point of unity. Eleven is the process of disintegration, stripping away the layers down to your core essence. Unity, the great illuminator, is transforming pat­terns and structures, freeing you from things that no longer serve your emerging wholeness. Look through the surface appearance of your proc­ess. Let complexity dissipate, becoming the blessing of simplicity.

In drawing eleven, cherished ideals, beliefs, and images of all kinds are being brought up for you to reexamine, illuminate, and transform. Examine what appears dissonant in your life. Let go! Embrace the disintegration process without resisting or judging it. The rigid walls of your resistances are being broken down. Going through your resistances and boundaries prepares a space for greater wisdom. You are becoming an open system. Anything that defines you is being strip­ped away. Expect clearing and change. As your facade crumbles and your walls come tumbling down, the true illumination of self bursts through!

I am Owl. I am clarity of intuition and wisdom. My keen hearing and crystalline vision gives me insight where others miss the picture. I am feared for my ability to "see in the dark". I discern truth from fiction with my watchful silent observation of my domain. Wisely sitting on my fence post, on my brothers shoulder or in the top of my favourite pine, I see and hear all. I stealthily and silently zero in on my desires and dreams. Nothing is hidden from me.

I am clarity of vision and wisdom. As I silently float onto your shoulder, I am telling you to keep a watchful eye open at all times. There are those who wish you didn't see beneath the surface of their realities. Protect yourself or others will take advantage of you. You are naturally discerning and intuitive. Continue to listen and observe so you won't miss the subtle messages contained in my message. Remember even in the darkness you see what others cannot. Once the view is unobstructed, aim for the heart, the centre- silently go after your desires and dreams. Along your way, you will encounter people who are apprehensive around you because of your psychic abilities and intuition. STICK TO YOUR TRUTH

Crystal dowsing and protection

By JAGUAR SPEAKS
THIS week I want to introduce the world of crystal pendulum dowsing. We have been clearing ourselves as we have progressed such that we are cleaner and more open in our hearts and minds. Now we are ready to move onward and upward. It takes time to learn how to use new tools properly but all new learning is worth the time and effort.

You can make your own or buy any pointed crystal pendant and attach it to a chain or string about 20 cm long. (A Tasbir, or set of prayer beads, also works if you do not have your pendulum handy.)

Whatever kind of pendulum you decide to use, it is very important before you start spending a few minutes meditating, to attune yourself with your higher consciousness.

To program your pendulum follow these steps:


Draw a 13cm (5 inches) straight line on a piece of clean paper.

Suspend your pendulum over the line (hold it between your thumb and middle finger) and really on it; mentally ask it to move and swing along the line (remember to keep you hand still). Persevere and concentrate. It will really work (yes, I too was sceptical at first). Keep focused and remain relaxed.

Now draw a circle 13cm in diameter on another clean sheet of paper. Once again, use your super conscious mind to ask your pendulum (now tuned in to your own unique vibrations) to move first clockwise, then anti clock wise.

You are now ready to program your new friend. As you mentally ask your pendulum to rotate clockwise tell your super conscious mind this movement means “yes”. Ask for anti-clockwise movement for “no”. These are the only responses to questions that the pendulum can offer. However, you may substitute “good-bad” or “safe-unsafe” responses, as you more confident.
For your pendulum dowsing sessions try to use a peaceful, quiet room far away from electrical equipment such as televisions and computers. Electromagnetic “disturbances”, or energy fields, may unduly influence the answers received from the pendulum.

Only ask your pendulum questions that can be answered with a “yes” or “no”. Initially, this can prove very difficult as few questions have such definitive answers. But, with a little practice, you will know how to develop your questions for maximum accuracy.

Your inner emotional state of mind and being may also affect the answers you receive, so it is best to try and remain as detached as possible from the answer you are seeking.

Your pendulum is a trusted friend and you should treat it as such and with respect. Asking your pendulum whether you should go to the pasar malam today, or wait until tomorrow, is a total waste of your pendulum's energy – and yours too!

With some questions you may find that the pendulum refuses to move in any direction. This most often occurs when it is inappropriate for you to know the answer – after all, there are some things, which you just have to work out for yourself.

A crystal you are “close” to will always work better with you. Try as many as you wish. They come in all varieties, sizes and weights. Make your pendulums your friends for life.

Aromatherapists find that pendulums are very helpful in choosing the best combination of essential oils for their clients.

Nutritionists use their pendulums to assist them in discovering from which allergies their clients may be suffering.

Crystal healers often use pendulums for detecting blockages within the chakras of their clients. As the pendulum is passed over each chakra in turn, it will begin to swing clockwise or anti-clockwise – thus indicating that healing is necessary for this chakra. And, once the healing session has been concluded, the crystal healer will use the pendulum once more to see whether the blockage has now been removed.

The list of possibilities for pendulum-usage is almost endless.

PROTECTION - PINK LIGHTNING TECHNIQUE

Now I want to share with you a technique to dispel negative energy in others who you feel are trying to hurt you. It is called the “pink lightning” technique.

If you feel someone is making life difficult for you or if you have constant problems with a colleague, try this technique!

Hold your personal clear quartz six-sided crystal (it should be about 8cm long) and visualise a pink lightning bolt over the head of the person you wish to be more understanding toward you.

Then start sending out loving thoughts to the higher self of that person. As you see the pink lightning bolt above the person see them covered in a beautiful shower of soft pink light and say in your mind and in your heart, “You (add their name) are becoming more loving all the time; you are a much more loving person.” The lightning clears all negativity and purifies the surrounding area.

This is an affirmation for another person. As we say and think “you are” we are also becoming more loving and understanding ourselves. Remember you are only bringing out the natural loving expressions of the person you are directing your thoughts to. We are not changing them (we do not have that right). We are just helping them to be more loving to themselves as well as to us.

While you are thinking those words, begin to visualise a pink lightning bolt in your mind’s eye, you will start to notice a different expression on the person’s face. If they have been very nasty towards you, they will become suddenly quiet; if they have been angry, they will start to speak more softly.

Add purple to your pink lightning bolt and it will protect you. When it is present no one can harm you. Something inside the other person wants to be soft, kind and loving in the presence of the pink lightning.

Whenever you concentrate on the divine presence within those people who you think want to hurt you, their expressions will be completely altered.

You can use this technique whenever you are in the company of people who are talking negatively about situations or people. Just mentally place the pink lightning over their heads in your mind (visualise your crystal and the pink lightning – you do not need your crystal with you, although you will find it easier to transform negative traits into positive ones with it) and they will begin to change within their own consciousness.

This technique is particularly helpful when you have no wish to be part of such a discussion but feel unable to leave.

Have fun whatever else. Enjoy your daily sit-in with your crystal circle (add a few extra tumbled crystals of the same as each four directions to increase the effect at a reasonable cost) continue with our new affirmation:

We are all one. When one is harmed, all are harmed. When one is helped, all are healed. Therefore in the name of who I am, and I am one with all, I ask that only that which is the highest good of all concerned happen through all dimensions, time and space in the way that is for the highest good. I give thanks that this is done!

My closing thought: The Greek language has a beautiful word, agape, which means unconditional love. Let's all share agape with each other and be a nation of agape people. (Pink, incidentally, is the colour of unconditional love. The lightning is connected with the energy and love of dolphins.)

I share with each of you AGAPE.

STAR MAG - FIT FOR LIFE - GOOD VIBRATIONS 7 SEPTEMBER 2003

Crystal illumination

By JAGUAR SPEAKS
A challenge in writing ahead of time is that, sometimes, the universe has other ideas of the subject I choose to write about. This article was originally about gold – yes, gold is a crystal – but a series of events over the past week have made it very clear that I should write about garnet. Both are cubic crystals, so let us examine garnet and we will come back to gold at another time.

Garnet is really a mineral group that consists of a number of different representatives. There are different types of garnets known and in use for healing at present. They are almandine (red/brown-black), andradite (khaki/brown-blackish), grossularite (grey/green-pink), hessonite (red, yellow-orange-brown), melanite (black), pyrope (dark red), rhodolite (dark red to reddish violet), spessartite (yellow/red-brown), uvarovite (emerald green).

Garnet, according to ancient mythology, is identical to the medieval carbuncle, a stone that was said to glow in the dark. This was considered to be on a spiritual level: Garnet illuminated the darkened soul and brought light and hope where the path (of life) seemed to have no end. It was, and is, the stone of heroes who had to deal with difficult tasks and trials in order to prove their courage.

Garnet helps us spiritually. Garnet has always been in fashion in times of crisis so perhaps we need to consider garnet now, with our world in crisis. Garnet also helps us cope with and surmount everyday problems in extreme situations. It helps us see further than our own narrow horizons and to be committed to the good of the community. (It sounds like a stone of national unity.) We have a national flower; perhaps we should have a national crystal!

At the emotional level, garnet promotes self-confidence, strength of character and joie de vivre. It brings courage, hope and trust. Garnet helps us eliminate unnecessary inhibitions and taboos, ensures active, balanced sexuality, and helps with potency problems.

In the mental area garnet helps us say goodbye to unusable or outworn ideas, views, agreements and correspondence and to begin a new life. It dissolves behavioural patterns and habits that hinder us from achieving a free lifestyle. Garnet bestows a wealth of new ideas and the necessary dynamic to realise them in spite of resistance, enmity or conscious sabotage.

On the physical front, garnet strengthens the power of regeneration in the body. It eliminates blocks, stimulates the metabolism and harmonises the composition of body fluids, particularly of the blood. Garnet stabilises the circulation and fortifies the immune system, encourages absorption of nutrients in the intestines and accelerates healing of inner and external wounds.

Garnet can be worn as a chain, bracelet, pendant, hand-comforter or as a rough unpolished stone. It can also be laid directly on the afflicted part of the body. Contact with the skin is essential. Special varieties of garnet are recommended for certain applications:

Almandine – Promotes thirst for action, capacity for work, imagination, absorption of iron in the intestine and wound healing.

Andradite – Promotes dynamism, flexibility and creative thoughts, stimulates the liver and encourages formation of blood.

Grossularite – Promotes relaxation and fortifies the kidneys; it is good for the skin and mucous membranes, and good against rheumatism and arthritis.

Hessonite – Promotes self-respect and spiritual growth; regulates hormone production.

Melanite – Promotes honesty and resistance; strengthens the spine and bones.

Pyrope – Promotes courage, good quality of life, charisma; fortifies the circulation; improves the quality of the blood.

Rhodolite – Promotes joie de vivre, warmth, sincerity, trust, healthy sexuality; stimulates the metabolism.

Spessartite – Promotes a willingness to help others; strengthens the heart, antidepressive, helps with nightmares and sexual problems.

Uvarovite – Promotes individuality, enthusiasm and detoxification; anti-inflammatory; helps with fever.

I always welcome questions from readers. If you are looking for a garnet, look at a few and choose one which “feels” right for you.

Garnet is part of the cubic lifestyle Group of crystals. So, if you picked the square from the shapes in my article a few weeks ago, this is the lifestyle that best typifies you. Other crystals in the cubic group are boji stones, diamond (yes, diamond), fluorite, gold, lapis lazuli, pyrite and sodalite.

The cubic crystal system is characterised by a square structure that indicates that you are likely to be very regular; your lifestyle is probably characterised by regular structures.

People who lead their lives in the cubic style never leave anything to chance. Order and overview are very important to you. Certain habits may take up a fixed position in your daily schedule. You take your commitments seriously and are generally punctual to the minute or always late by the same number of minutes, which is actually a kind of punctuality. You like to plan far in advance so that you can make detailed provisions for later events at an early stage.

Safety and security are very important to you.

Logical thinking comes easily to you. You seldom have any difficulty in retaining an overview, even in complex systems. You are likely to be very precise and exact in all your considerations of anything that will provide security and will strengthen your position in a conflict. For you, the inevitable outcome of cause and effect should be recognisable in all circumstances; even risk should be calculable.

Feelings, too, have their place. You have deep feelings towards people you love and even, depending on your inclinations, towards animals, plants, stones or even ideas that you feel enthusiastic about. However, you do not like to allow your actions to be led by your feelings.

A cubic lifestyle can allow both positive and negative development. In the positive case, there is development of precisely those characteristics that will allow you to “think big” and generously.

You are able to see yourself as part of a larger plan.

You do not blindly trust in the divine or in the universe. However, you are ready to allow yourself to be persuaded by new possibilities.

No matter what area of work you are involved in, you will be concerned with making your work more effective, optimising actions and improving results. Large goals appear attractive to you, so you rapidly gravitate towards responsible positions and are able to fill them. Difficulties appear as challenges that can be mastered. You gain fulfillment with the successful realisation of each idea and success is bound to follow!

Remember to spend time in your crystal circle and experiment with new crystals.

My closing thought for the week: Our belief at the beginning of a doubtful undertaking is the one thing that ensures the successful outcome of our venture. You have to believe in and expect happiness, or the best of everything, lest it never comes. The game of life is a game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later with resounding accuracy.

Extracts from Good to Great by Jim Collins
(Author of Built to Last)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
6 Disciplines of Leaping From Good to Great
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1. The Have Level 5 Leadership (leadership)

"We were surprised, shocked really, to discover the type of leadership required for turning a good company into a great one. Compared to high-profile leaders with big personalities who make headlines and become celebrities, the good-to-great leaders seem to have come from Mars. Self-effacing, quiet, reserved, even shy - these leaders are a paradoxical blend of personal humility and professional will. They are more like Lincoln and Socrates than Patton or Caesar."

2. They First Ask Who...Then What (right people)

"We expected the good-to-great leaders would begin by setting a new vision and strategy. We found instead that they FIRST got the right people on the bus, the wrong people off the bus, and the right people in the right seats - and THEN they figured out where to drive it. The old adage "People are the most important asset" turns out to be wrong. People are NOT your most important asset. The right people are."

3. They Confront the Brutal Facts (Yet Never Lose Faith)

"Every good-to-great companies embraced what we call the Stockdale Paradox: You must maintain unwavering faith that you can and will prevail in the end, regardless of the difficulties, AND at the same time have the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be."

4. They Are Hedgehogs (focus)

There is a line among the fragments of the Greek poet Archilochus which says: 'The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing'. Scholars have differed about the correct interpretation of these dark words, which may mean no more than that the fox, for all his cunning, is defeated by the hedgehog's one defense. Hedgehogs see the world in terms of a single universal organizing principle. Foxes, on the other hand pursue many ends, often unrelated and even contradictory. Good-to-Great leaders are hedgehogs.

5. They Inspire a Culture of Discipline (performance)

"All companies have a culture, some companies have discipline, but few companies have a CULTURE OF DISCIPLINE. When you have disciplined people, you don't need hierarchy. When you have disciplined thought, you don't need bureaucracy. When you have disciplined action, you don't need excessive controls. When you combine a culture of discipline with an ethic of entrepreneurship, you get the magical alchemy of great performance."

6. They are Technology Accelerators

Good-to-great companies THINK differently about the role of technology. They never use technology as a primary means of igniting transformation. Yet, paradoxically, they are pioneers in the application of carefully selected technologies. Technology by itself is never a primary, root cause of either greatness or decline.

MALAYSIAS GIFT TO THE 21st CENTURY

VISION 2020

The Nine Challenges of Malaysia’s Vision 2020

· The FIRST of these is the challenges of establishing a united Malaysian nation with a sense of common and shared destiny. This must be a nation at peace with itself, territorially and ethnically integrated, living in harmony and full and fair partnership, made up of one 'Bangsa Malaysia' with political loyalty and dedication to the nation.
· The SECOND is the challenge of creating a psychologically liberated, secure, and developed Malaysian Society with faith and confidence in itself, justifiably proud of what it is, of what it has accomplished, robust enough to face all manner of adversity. This Malaysian Society must be distinguished by the pursuit of excellence, fully aware of all its potentials, psychologically subservient to none, and respected by the peoples of other nations.
· The THIRD challenge we have always faced is that of fostering and developing a mature democratic society, practicing a form of mature consensual, community-oriented Malaysian democracy that can be a model for many developing countries.
· The FOURTH is the challenge of establishing a fully moral and ethical society, whose citizens are strong in religious and spiritual values and imbued with the highest of ethical standards.
· The FIFTH challenge that we have always faced is the challenge of establishing a matured liberal and tolerant society in which Malaysians of all colours and creeds are free to practise and profess their customs, cultures and religious beliefs and yet feeling that they belong to one nation.
· The SIXTH is the challenge of establishing a scientific and progressive society, a society that is innovative and forward-looking, and one that is not only a consumer of technology but also a contributor to the scientific and technological civilisation of the future.
· The SEVENTH challenge is the challenge of establishing a fully caring society and a caring culture, a social system in which society will come before self, in which the welfare of the people will revolve not around the state or the individual but around a strong and resilient family system.
· The EIGHTH is the challenge of ensuring an economically just society. This is a society in which there is a fair and equitable distribution of the wealth of the nation, in which there is full partnership in economic progress. Such a society cannot be in place so long as there is the identification of race with economic function, and the identification of economic backwardness with race.
· The NINTH challenge is the challenge of establishing a prosperous society, with an economy that is fully competitive, dynamic, robust and resilient.
