Baffling Warning at the Gym

Angel by Jimi Hendrix….97

Getting ready to do the next set of workouts, I waited next to one of the weight machines. Nevertheless, I was unaware how closely I was standing to the metal bars. Fixated on the latest in gym shoes, I had no idea the fate that was about to befall me – or would have – if I had not responded to an ensuing telepathic racket and the awesome words: “Move now!”

Almost involuntarily, I hopped to my left and, in less than a split second, a load of weights comes crashing to the floor! Sheer luck does not even come close to describing my fortune. The bars barely graze the hair on my down-turned head. If my crown had taken a direct hit, no doubt I would have suffered a concussion or I might have been killed. Stunned, I roll onto a nearby mat and whisper, “Thank you, whoever you are.” Choking back the tears, I silently say, I am so grateful!

Toweling-off, I sprawl out on the mat while trying to gain some sense of composure. Soon, from the periphery, I catch a bunch of people running in my direction.

Who me? I’m thinking.

“Hey, what happened?” says the first, a broad-shouldered fellow.

“Are you okay?”

Attempting to work up a smile, I say, “Yes, I’m fine, thanks. Just a little stunned, that’s all.”

The nice man nods and a couple of them behind him break into smiles. Others remain more reserved as if heeding caution.

I give them a wink and say, “Thanks for checkin’ on me.”

“Sure,” they say, almost in unison, and skip off to do their workouts.

Not wanting to be the center of attention, I pick up my stuff and move to the far corner of the gym; planning to take five and finish my routine. But as I bend down to tie my shoelaces, I soon realize my hands and legs are still shaking like the streamers on a gift box. Time to clean up, I suppose. Slowly, I make my way to the locker room.

In awe of the baffling warning that saved me from such a dreadful fate, I lug my gym bag and wobbly self to the car. Fumbling for the key, at last I toss my junk in the trunk and head home. Originally, I’d planned to have dinner out and do a little reading. It’s funny how quickly things change.

Peering through the windshield, I’m a turtle looking up at the fearsome sky – scoping out the cosmic possibility that somebody up there likes me. “Thank you for being there, whoever you are! There are just no words!” And I brush a tear from my eye.

Independence Day and the Theory of Everything

Independence Day and the
Theory of Everything

“Haunted” by the Moody Blues 67

Parallel Dimensions, Max and Energy Vibration. According to the Many Worlds Theory (Level 3) of parallel dimensions, people are in contact with other worlds (dimensions, universes). (81) All possibilities exist. Then, as you make one decision over another, the universe splits. According to this theory , each of the parallel dimensions is as real as any other. As you enter another dimension, you are probably not aware of the change in state, i.e., not consciously. The change may (or may not) be subtle, but it is natural, of course. One feature or many features of the universe may change. There may be a change in the weather or something might drop out of your universe  entirely, signaling that you have entered a parallel dimension. For instance, you might misplace your keys or start talking to somebody you just met. You might never see this person again. On the other hand, you may end up in a relationship with him (another decision point) and that just might change your life – as Max changed mine when he was alive, and after he died. There are many ways to conceive of parallel dimensions. I like to think of them as alternate realities where like-minded spirits (living and deceased) meet and carry on.

Thoughts to ponder on a rainy day: did I enter a parallel dimension when I first encountered Max’s spirit? Or did his spirit cross over some (mental/physical/spiritual) threshold, entering my universe ? Perhaps Max moved on to another dimension, later returning to see his loved ones – like Tessie, who became aware of his spirit presence, as well as those who remained unaware. Maybe when Max died he did not leave our world at all, at least not for awhile. Then on that awe-inspiring day in my dining room (January 1, 2004), his being and mine reconvened in one dimension, reminding me of the fateful night we met in a bar in Tempe, Arizona.

Parallel dimension and law of attraction concepts link to the principle in quantum physics that energy vibrates (82) at specified frequencies. As we have seen according to string theory , the strings that make up our world of gravity , matter and energy, have different frequencies. That is, strings vibrate with varying levels of energy depending on the form of matter in question. Of course, everything in our universe is made of energy. This truth is evident in Einstein ’s seminal equation, E=Mc-squared. Though mass and energy reflect different properties of the same physical system, they are equivalent. (The letter “c” in the equation represents the speed of light – a constant which, as such, never changes.) In effect, if you multiply the constant by the mass (of any object in our physical system) you will obtain the amount of producible energy, i.e., the object’s frequency of vibration.

Water, trees, rocks, and yes, even money (!) possess the properties of mass and energy . Think about that the next time you wonder where your next dollar will come from. Are you creating your financial future energetically, i.e., through your thoughts, beliefs, attitudes and actions? Your feelings and beliefs about money are as important as your actions.

As part of all matter and energy in our universe , different substances vibrate at different frequencies. For example, the vibrational frequency of a rock varies depending on the type of rock. Quartz crystals are manufactured for frequencies from a few tens of kilohertz to tens of megahertz. (83) Sadly, the water we drink is becoming more and more de-energized, having lower (unhealthier) vibrational frequencies than in previous years. (84) Our bodies are made of seventy to seventy-five percent water – one of the reasons the purity of our water is of great consequence – not only for us, but for all living creatures on our still-breathing planet. The vibration of a rock can be higher or lower than the vibration of a human being. Visit the sacred red rocks of Sedona, Arizona. Absorb the powerful energy of the awesome vibrational structures. Beautiful high frequency locations can be found all over the globe.

We vibrate twenty-four seven. As carbon-based creatures, we are the living, breathing quintessence of all matter and energy that ever existed. We are truly the stuff of stars!

Our vibration may be high or low at any given point in time. In terms of consciousness , our variable levels of energy depend greatly on our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and  attitudes. These, in turn, affect the body, mind and spirit. Dr. David Hawkins ’ Map of Consciousness (converted to a logarithmic scale) is a method of charting (potentially raising?) the vibration of human consciousness. The map is based on Hawkins ’ studies in kinesiology. Using a large world-wide sample, Dr. Hawkins found that the vibrational frequency of love is 525 on the consciousness scale, regardless of where in the world the measurements were taken. Shame and misery hardly vibrate at all, gauged below 50 on the scale. The highest level of attainment, 1000, is beyond the common realm of humanity, i.e., at the level of Christ, or Buddha, or Infinity, “the source of reality manifest as divinity.” (85)

There are numerous ways to increase your energy vibration, such as through frequent exercise, meditation, reciting (and believing) positive affirmations, prayer, by cleansing toxins from the body, or just by being a caring, compassionate person. Journal writing is another wonderful way to raise your vibration. It is one of my favorite ways. On the other hand, you can probably think of activities that tend to lower your energy. What about watching negative movies and television shows? The use of illicit drugs? Taking excessive prescription drugs or even OTCs? Drinking alcohol frequently and excessively? Arguing to no purpose, i.e., outside of the debate arena or classroom? Compulsive shopping? Perhaps the need for more material goods reflects a core need, unexpressed. Like many addictions, extreme shopping may seem to raise your energy initially – only to cause it to plummet when the shopping must be abruptly removed from your agenda, due to a subsequent budget drain. Perhaps even the credit cards are maxed out. What about the strain on your mind, body, spirit? What other activities tend to lower your vibes?

Proponents of the Law of Attraction tell us that like attracts like. This means that like thoughts attract like thoughts. So like thoughts, feelings, and beliefs attract like actions – and like results. Your thoughts create patterns or frequency vibrations, i.e., the frequency at which you are vibrating from moment to moment. Different frequencies attract different kinds of matter and energy . We receive results that vary based on our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and actions. More and more I realize that, whether living or deceased, Max and I were often vibrating at a similar level. We were tuned to the same virtual radio station for a long time, even after he died.

Yet no matter how highly (or lowly) our energy vibrates, consciousness is consciousness. It does not matter whether we are living or deceased. At death, your energy is simply transformed. Einstein reminded us of this truth when he said that energy cannot be created nor destroyed. Energy simply is. Spirit never dies. Consciousness lives on, forever. If we are truly aware, we can tap into that consciousness any time. All it takes is some learning and practice. Initially, without any awareness, I was learning and practicing while I meditated; still do whenever possible. However, just after Max died, all I was attempting to do was to get some sleep. Little did I know what would happen next! …

Conversations With Max

When Heaven Touches Earth is the latest book Mandy is included in, and WOW does it have some big names in it! These stories will make a wonderful addition to any holiday gift this year. Mandy would like to share with you an excerpt from her latest co-authored book:

Conversations with Max

I’ll never forget the miraculous New Year’s Day when my beloved Max came to me—just nine days after he had died—forever shattering my agnostic tendencies and prior beliefs about death. I’d spent that miserable morning feeling sorry for my dear, sweet husband, taken so young by the ravages of cancer—and also feeling sorry for myself. Though I’d always known it would be hard after Max transitioned, I’d never imagined just how hard it would be. As I wallowed that morning in the memories and images from his funeral, still so fresh in my heart, I was shocked to hear a voice embedded in an unusual buzzing sound, almost as if it were arising from the back of my brain.

Shaken to the core, I let out a shriek. Something or someone was there! I could barely detect words beneath the surreal buzzing, like the sound of white noise. Trying to regain my composure, I turned toward the sound. “What?” I asked. “What are you saying?”

When I still couldn’t decipher the syllables, I mustered the courage to yell, “Louder! I can’t hear you!” I needed to know what those words were!

Then, all at once, like a blast from infinity, the words socks up! seemed to echo off the back of my neck. The masculine tenor was deep and felt close to my head, yet the pitch was strangely high. That’s the best description I’m able to offer to anyone who has never experienced something so odd. It seemed the phrase “socks up” represented the tail end of a sentence I hadn’t been able to fully make out. And although the resonance was higher than any normal sound I’d ever heard, it was still clear to me that the voice was Max’s.

Even as I was flooded with joy at the contact from my deceased husband, my agnostic scientist’s brain wrestled with the idea of white noise coming to me from another dimension. As a statistician for over twenty years, I knew it wasn’t truly white noise at all. White noise has no pattern; yet this communication was definitely from some sort of entity capable of creating a detectable pattern that emerged in the form of a sentence. The unique sibilance of the words and overall familiarity of the tone left no doubt in my mind that it was Max. Or his soul. Or his something-or-other.

I leapt from my chair and stood straight up to signal my willingness to receive. Shaking, I turned in the direction of the voice and asked, “Socks up? What on earth are you trying to tell me, Max?”

Upcoming Events!!!

Vision Board

Mandy will teach you how to use her Attraction Outcomes Method™ to intend and attract to you the things you’re “missing” or may lack in your life! This class will focus on the creation of your Vision Board to assist you in manifesting (or creating) something of value that you would like to have in your life. For example:
– A new job / new career / new boss 😉
– A new relationship
– More friendships
– Personal growth/self-improvement
– More money/abundance in your life
– A new wardrobe
– Better health
– Weight loss
– More self-esteem
– Your next dream vacation
– A new car
– A new home
– Anything positive that you want or desire to have in your life because you would like to have it!

Vision Boards really work!! This Mandy knows. The Law of Attraction is being used by so many people world-wide, yet so many are unaware of this entire process.

Mandy will also teach you how to focus on your vision board with Positive Feeling, Belief (so important!), Gratitude, and how to “Let Go” so that your wish becomes your Reality! These are some of the basic tenets of the Law of Attraction. However, you will also learn so much more!!

Another class will be announced soon.

Snacks, water, coffee, and hot tea will be provided. If you wish to have a specialty drink, like a particular style of coffee or soda, please bring it along with you.

Invite a friend! Simply call one of these 2 numbers to RSVP and sign up for the class!

Wondering what Mandy talks about in her new book?

Here’s a short introduction to “Death is Not “The End”.




       Death Is Not “The End”:  One Agnostic’s Journey On the Bumpy Road to Belief is a journal of real supernatural events.  Three hours before the Christmas Eve of 2003, the soul of Max Blau departed from a hospice in Tempe, Arizona.  Yet, in Oxford, England Christmas Eve had already arrived.  There in Max’s former home sat his loved ones, grief-stricken upon hearing he had died on their most loved and celebrated holiday.  Then just hours after Max’s purported departure, incredible things began to happen in Oxford, and in Arizona as well.

Despite the terrible sadness caused by the untimely death of Max, my husband and dearest friend in all the world, I soon realized that things were not as they seemed.  During Christmas week alone, I began to receive telephone calls from loved ones and friends dear to us.  Oddly, some of the callers sounded happy, if not downright joyful just after Max had left us!  In fact, his sisters and a few of his close friends called to tell me their uncanny stories.  From the outset, these tales had a strange effect on me.  You see, I was agnostic back then. I had no beliefs one way or another.  Nevertheless, after hearing these strange details, I decided to do what I did best – sit at my coffee table and take notes.

The Metaman Tune

This One’s for You by Barry Manilow …138

While waiting in the doctor’s office for a routine procedure, I was reading a pamphlet when, out of the blue, came “The Metaman Tune!”2 Straight up I perched, wondering if Max’s little ditty had come blazing through to me from some parallel dimension. You see, I never knew how to whistle the tune he created, back when. I mean, I could hardly even remember how it went. Max was the only one who could whistle it as perfectly as I heard today.

The Horses and On to Surrey

My Father’s Eyes by Eric Clapton…106

The London and Oxford tours were conducted by my personal guide, Char.  How lucky can I get?  Then, Thursday we enjoyed a tasty Middle Eastern dinner with Char’s sister, Alicia and her daughter, Sandy.  The next day, Char carted me off to the pastures for a mixer with Alicia, Sandy, and their beautiful horses grazing in a field greener than anything I’d seen since the Amish country.  Just before sundown, we snapped a few shots, “manely” of the horses, of course.  (Sorry, couldn’t resist!)

In the morning, we moved on to Hensley for lunch with Max’s cousin, Nate.  After a few laughs, some who-do-you-knows, and an authentic shepherd’s pie, I unhappily said so-long to Char.  Then Nate took over and drove us on to Surrey where he and his wife, Chloe, live with their lovely daughters, Carmella and Rianna.

On Saturday, the five of us motored to Windsor for a tour of the Queen’s Castle.  The knowledgeable staff provided us with an in-depth look at the royal family – the allure, the joys, the responsibilities, and the sorrows that they had endured.  Some would say, what about the wealth?  We don’t have what they have.  Yet, I came away with the feeling that the old adage, money can’t buy happiness, holds true for this family as well. (My upcoming post script highlights the subject of wealth, ponderings written years later).

After our tour of the awesome castle, we hiked over to the gift shop to engage in blatant browsing.  In the end, I did purchase a few things.  You see, I just had to get some Windsor silver, four ornate towels, five boxes of fragrant soaps (they were small, really) and several calendar collectibles – gifts for Mom and a few of our friends.  Then, being the record-keeping fool that I am, I bought and kept a Buckingham Palace calendar for my office.

Thoughts before leaving:  how will this stuff ever fit in my suitcase?

Char In London

Char in London

Those Were The Days by Mary Hopkins.….102

Max’s sister, Char, met me in London. My first trip abroad and oh, what a trip! She told me they’d had nothing but rain and cold weather for weeks on end, but the day I arrived the sky was clear, the air balmy, and temperatures were climbing high into the seventies. Char said I must have brought the desert heat with me. I chuckled because the air seemed a tad brisk to me. In any event, these delightful conditions certainly satisfied both of us.

What a great landing. It took me less than an hour to fall in love with London: people promenading in the streets and that catchy tune, “England Swings Like a Pendulum Do” reverberating in my brain. It was an ice cream, popcorn and beer kind of night. After all those years, I was finally learning first-hand what the hullaballoo was all about.

Despite that residual case of balloon toe, I silently applauded myself for keeping up with Char. I’m sure she thought differently, because every so often she’d turn around and holler, “C’mon, let’s go!” We had to run-limp to get to the theatre on time to see The Mousetrap, an incredible play that has been performed for over fifty years. Not fifteen – fifty! Things like that just don’t happen in the States. We are all too ready to throw out the historic hubs of yesteryear in favor of a couple of catchy sound bites and the must-have toys of today, all of which lose their luster as soon as we’ve had our flimsy fun with them. But England doesn’t strike me that way. Most people seem rather unassuming and perhaps a bit more appreciative of what they have. Was it World War II and the bombing of London that had such a strong and lasting effect? Or maybe it’s the form of government. On the other hand, England’s hefty tax structure would probably cause any inhabitant to be more appreciative of possessions, material or otherwise. Continue reading Char In London

A Spirit Guide Speaks

Bob Dylan Song Mr. Tamborine Man ..…49

I can’t seem to recall the date this wonderful event occurred, but I believe it was on or around May 1st. I know it happened at about four o’clock because I usually meditate around that time of day, at least when I’m home. I’ve been meditating a lot the past month and plan to continue with this practice. The deep breathing clears my mind, tends to alleviate grief, and consequently helps me sleep. Because of a health issue, I did some research and learned that meditation is a great way to retain the health we have or to return an ailing body, mind and spirit to healing mode.

Mandy’s motto: an ounce of prevention is worth a shot. So I ordered more meditation CDs. So happy to find they arrived on time for the weekend.

Well, after doing the Saturday chores, I glanced down at the mystifying stack of disks and books I’d arranged on the end table. Let’s try this one, I thought, as I slid the Spirit Guide Meditation CD from a book by Sylvia Browne.2 ”I’ve never attempted to contact a spirit guide,” I said to Tiggi, my tiger-striped confidante.

“So, what have I got to lose? Who knows, maybe I’ll learn something.” Tiggi’s tail shot up, then curled in approval.

“I see you agree!” Continue reading A Spirit Guide Speaks
