The Crystalline Body

Abstract - by Anne VisI'd like to share a very interesting article on the crystalline body. A couple of years ago I started working with the crystalline skeleton. There are techniques using the blue dragon from Tibetan Light Work that enable us to gradually make our skeleton crystalline. Somehow the thought was so appealing to me that I have been working with this concept on a regular basis.

Another interesting factor that is mentioned in this article is how fractals work ... As an artist working with fractals, this interconnectedness between the world of art and the world of healing is very fascinating. Could working with fractals heal the DNA? I put intentions of light and love in the fractals when I work with them. According to this article it needs higher codes of light as well as the influence of sound.
With regards to the aspect of sound, I can recommend
Tom Kenyon's dimensional attunement of the pineal glad.

Then the result in 3D would be a different experience of the body and a need for lighter food.
I must say that under the current freezing conditions I have not felt the need yet to give up my favorite stews (not exactly the light food the article is talking about!) ... :-)
Food for thought ...

By the way: the abstract you see above is actually a fractal! :-)

Dreaming of baby-knors ...

Valentine Greeting Cards by Anne VisAt night the knors are singing their love songs in the back yard ... :-)
Which reminded me that
Valentine's Day is not too far away and it would be nice to create some new greeting cards for this beautiful celebration of love and romance ...
This
new series is inspired by fractals with a lovely smooth and sensual flow.
If you want to save the environment: there is also a
free ecard for Valentine's Day available.
Meantime I am looking forward to new furry purry friends in spring ... :-)

Blood donor? I don't think so!

A dreamy afternoon ... - by Anne VisI've always loved books on magical realism. The Belgian writer Hubert Lampo was one of my favorites.
The magical connection is something that is just impossible to resist and it is what keeps life interesting.
This past week I discovered what I believe is a new generation of magical realism.
I read a book by Cecilia Ahern called
Thanks for the memories.
A woman has strange memories after a blood transfusion.
It is long known that for instance someone who is vegetarian can suddenly have a craving for burgers after a heart
transplant, if the donor happened to be a burger fan. But is the same true for blood transfusions? And would it be as intense as having the exact same experiences as the donor in any given moment in time? In theory this could be true, I don't know if there is research on this topic. Blood cells live shorter than most other cells in the body, but could it be that the information gets stored somehow in the body?
I find it fascinating too that the cellular memory can have a larger impact than the memory we think originates from the brain. Where does that leave the neuroscientists who have found that by activating a certain spot in the brain they can evoke a particular memory?

And say the information from the donor blood cell gets stored in the body. Would it be possible that the receiver gets a certain talent that they did not have before? Could it work positively in a way other than just prolong the life? (or shorten it if you happen to get hepatitis C ...)

From a spiritual point of view organ transplants and blood transfusions call for a lot of questions. Both for the donor and the receiver.
For the donor:

  • Do they have to "hang around" until the receiver finally dies?

  • Do donor and receiver now share control over the karmic issues, extending into afterlife or next life?

For the receiver:

  • What to do with the extra karmic burden of another individual?

  • Does it create an obligation for future pay-back and complicated karmic ramifications?

  • Does it disturb the life plan as the individual may now be carrying out somebody else's agenda?

Personally I do not choose to be a blood donor/receiver nor do I want to receive nor give organs if the situation may arise. I think life is already complicated enough as it is.

Our government wants us to clearly state whether we want to be organ donors or not. Donating organs would prolong people's lives with current medical expertise. No questions asked about the consequences.

From an empathic viewpoint it is always hard to see someone suffer who could be helped with a donor organ. And yet most people find it hard to be donor or have their loved ones be ripped apart after their death. Also somehow in this society people think they are better off to receive an organ, but are not willing to be a donor. Plain selfish or is there more to it?

In situations of life and death choices can be difficult, as we also see in the discussions on euthanasia. I have not seen these discussions on blood transfusions, and I think they should be held as well. The implications can be very far reaching.
