The Art of Dying – Part 1 by Dr. Newton Kondaveti, MD

Death is a word we don’t use lightly and so we asked Dr. Newton a few questions about it and in the process realized there is also an art to dying. We present Part 1 here.

Thriive: Dr. Newton, if death is inevitable what is the point of life?

Dr. Newton: Death and Life are integral parts of each other and make each other significant. If Death did not exist, Life would have no meaning or value. Life is like playing cricket: it is time bound. Whether it is a one-day match or a test match, the requisite number of overs have to be played. Just as the match is played with a purpose we too come here with a purpose. With playfulness we create joyful experiences and this adds meaning to life. If there was no Death, there’d be eternal life and the sense of purpose would not exist. We need to play and give the best version of ourselves to the game. Also, the uncertainty (as in a cricket match) makes us more spontaneous and joyful.

Thriive: What then is the best way of living this life?

Dr. Newton: Living with complete and total awareness of the Self in every moment, is the best way. Our awareness guides us towards the right purpose and shows us what we need to do in the present moment.

Thriive: How do we know the meaning of life?

Dr. Newton: We need to remember that awareness existed even before we were born and knows our soul plan. Life does not end with death nor did it begin with birth.

Thriive: Why does the word ‘Death’ scare us so much that it makes us even afraid of using it?

Dr. Newton: The underlying cause of the fear of Death is the fear of change and the fear of the unknown. The lack of understanding and enlightenment about what happens after we die, keeps us fearing it. Being dead while living is a condition so many people find themselves in just because they live in fear of Death.

Thriive: How can one lessen this irrational, limiting fear and lead a life that is not fearful?

Dr. Newton: I highly recommend these two beautiful ways of getting over the illogical and irrational fear of Death: Meditation and Past Life Regression.

1) Meditation: Through meditation, one can know, experience and understand the deathless soul energy that continues to live within us even after we die. The experiences that we get during meditation (or sadhana) such as out of body experience, astral travel and so on, give us insights into that which is eternal and which is inside us. This makes us realize that when the death moment comes, it is just about leaving the decayed body here and taking up a new form. We then don’t fear dying or even the death of loved ones since we know that they come back again after taking a new form.

2) Past Life Regression: Many times the irrational fear about death that some people carry around is connected to the fearful, traumatic deaths they experienced in other lifetimes. Through PLR, they process that fear and understand that their soul continues to live and that they’ve come back in a new body. Sometimes they are also able to identify their loved ones from previous lifetimes who’ve now incarnated as their children or other family members.

This proves that Death is just a transition and not a final separation from our loved ones and once we accept that the fear of our own death or even that of our loved ones will vanish.

Thriive: Intense grief often accompanies the death of a loved one. How can one overcome that?

Dr. Newton: Grief is very natural. When someone dear dies, the people left behind immediately experience it as a physical absence. They are so used to the physical form that when it’s gone they miss it terribly.

As much as possible, the person who has lost a loved one must grieve in order to come to terms with the death.  They must allow the tears to flow and with the support of the loved ones, the grieving process is much easier. If the grief is not allowed to be expressed completely it will be stored inside the body as a frozen energy and could lead to depression and other illnesses.

Dr. Elisabeth Kubler Ross has done pioneering work on the grief process. It can be summarized as D-A-B-D-A:

The first step is Denial where the person refuses to believe that their loved one has gone away. The next is Anger. The 3rd stage is Bargaining (the grieving person tries to negotiate sometimes with supernatural forces to bring the person back).  This is followed by Depression and the final step is Acceptance.

This period of grieving can last for a day, months, decades or even whole lifetimes.

Reaching the level of acceptance that yes, the person has vacated their body and moved away to the other world and that they themselves will one day reach the mystery of death, triggers within them a sort of spiritual growth. This affects the whole family because they are intrigued by the mystery of death and it initiates them into the unknown. Grief vanishes with the understanding that we are multi-dimensional soul beings and we never die. Everyone goes through this grieving process but those who are enlightened beings don’t grieve for long but for a few days only. Their spiritual understanding makes them overcome their grief very quickly.

Day 3 Of QEC2: Immense Possibilities Exist Within Us

In quantum energy, it is said believing is seeing. Yes, this is the play of quantum physics mechanics.


On the final day of the Conclave, case studies were shown by Dr. Jayesh Shah in which healing took place by the very act of the patient going deep into their feelings. Skeptics, please excuse. The results were breath-gaspingly amazing! And when Jonaki, the compere, invited the doctors in the room to come on stage after the session ended, they thronged there feeling proud and excited. Doctors who were heads of departments in hospitals in Chandigarh and other places around the country, an orthodontist and an oncologist from Mumbai and even a young, newly-graduated medical doctor, gave a virtual huzzah to the immense possibilities they had just witnessed by one of their own. All of them were keen to discover how they too could incorporate quantum principles into their methods of healing.

Most of them were students of Dr. Newton & Dr.Lakshmi, beloved of all. This was apparent quite clearly in the packed house the doctors’ meditation and lecture sessions saw.

Many Masters For Many

Dr. Newton had said that the paradigm for healing had changed from what it was in the past. From One Master For Many, it was now Many Masters For Many, which is what QEC2 also believes in: All Speakers, accomplished scientists and teachers in their own right, generously sharing their teachings with all and encouraging them to seek answers within themselves.

They spoke about Anapanasati Meditation and the Art of healing oneself. Dr Newton reminded the audience that no one but they themselves could give them what they were seeking. He lovingly admonished the audiences (thousands of his fans were watching the Thriive Facebook page online) not to be so keen to look for an external healer, outside of themselves. He asked people to introspect, why they were so eager to avoid meditation but ready to run to clinics, and hope that someone else- even if it was a doctor, could redeem them. He reminded the audience of the power that lay within, and answers which could be accessed only through knowing oneself via a commitment to deep meditation. And that there was no shortcut to health but to do this inner work.

This was the sentiment also expressed by Dr. Patrick Porter as he gave a salute to the evolved traditional medicine of India which is the base of most of the techniques of Quantum Energy Medicine.

His childhood was one of abuse but also of redemption and this created in him the desire to share his knowledge with others. He created the BrainTap technology which retrains brainwaves to empower the individual.

Unlimited Universe

“We’re all evolved bodies of the energies of the cosmos who can heal themselves if they remember,” said Dr. Porter. “Many cultures need additional gadgets to understand the quantum energy world, but India, which is the place where meditation and yoga originated, have audiences which are so evolved that they are probably very close to ascension,” added Dr. Porter. These are the words that shall resonate with every visitor to QEC2 as they explore their own unlimited universe.

Dr.Neeta Shah’s team spoke about the TimeWaver while Capt. Arvind Singh along with ACMOS representatives from the UK showed the practical but almost magical services provided by The ACMOS method.

After a beautiful closing ceremony with the Speakers felicitated once again by Patriji and Shreans Daga, the Executive Director of Thriive, yet another edition of QEC2 ended with a promise to be back soon, bigger and even better. After all, when QEC is raised to the power of three, the expectation of exponential growth in new topics of research and audience size is expectedly a mathematical certainty!

(Quantum Energy Conclave2 was held in Pyramid Valley, Bangalore, from 26th to 28th January, 2018).

Day 2 Of QEC2: Immersion In Quantum Energy Medicine

You haven’t experienced peace if you’ve never meditated. Eastern philosophy considers it (and acknowledged globally) to be the best way to begin the day. And if it is accompanied by music, there can be nothing more soothing.

One felt mentally, physically and emotionally rejuvenated after a double dose of meditation: flute meditation with Thriive Pillar and founder of PSSM, Brahmarshi Patriji, which was followed by guided meditation by Living From Vision founder, Ilona Selke. It was time for the Speakers to take the stage which was set for a digital presentation by well-renowned Eden Energy Medicine (EEM) experts Donna Eden and David Feinstein from USA.

Among a lot of the information shared by Donna, one of the things that resonated was how the body has 14 meridians and that they are connected with all our organs. Any illness can be cured by ensuring that the energies flow to exactly where they need to flow by thumping on the respective meridians.

Eva Gold from Canada, one of the top practitioners of EEM, added further synergy to the presentation as she carried over from where Donna and David’s presentation ended. She spoke about the nine systems of energy in our body which we need to keep re-aligning in order to regain optimal health which is lost in our day-to-day functioning. One of her examples included hormonal imbalances which can be cured if the chakras, that run along the spine, are aligned properly.

This was happening on the first floor of the Pyramid at PVI, one of Asia’s largest meditational pyramids, which can seat almost a 1000 people at a time. The hall at the base of the pyramid was seeing its own energetic activity. It was lined with stalls where one could learn more about and even experience the many innovative devices of energy medicine.

The most popular was the Thriive Art & Soul stall where the dedicated team explained to the visitors the many benefits of being connected to Thriive Art & Soul (*hint - Alternative healers and lightworkers could register for FREE!). An exuberant presentation about Thriive by its CEO, Pinky Daga, and her team had the audience agog.

Equally popular was the Svaram stall. It’s creative director, Aurelio, world renowned organologist, ceremonial musician and sound therapist, patiently demonstrated the different sound effects created by the many intriguing instruments displayed in the stall. One could experience the Swinging- and Rotating Chimes, Tubular Bells, Plate Gongs, PulseTubes, the sounds of which were tuned to create deeper states of consciousness. One fascinating instrument was the Ocean Drum that simulated the sound of ocean waves, which one could spend hours listening to. A set of African rattles played by Aurelio transported one to an earlier primal era in time.

 Svaram also created a Sound Bath, a wooden bed with musical strings below it and which was surrounded on all sides with musical instruments. The sound waves from the many instruments worked at intervals, enveloping the client in a healing cloud. Well, this was an experience that could only be felt when actually undertaken.

A teeny-weeny taste of it was given by Aurelio in his post-dinner session when the inside of the pyramid, lighted down to a serene coziness, saw the attendees sprawled on the floor in the Shavaasana pose. Aurelio and his team then went around the room in a beautifully choreographed dance of sorts, starting at the King’s Chamber (the highest energetic point of the Pyramid) immersing the attendees in healing waves of sound.

On the other side was the stall by Medlabs, the pioneer Quantum Energy research lab set up by PVI from where one was taken to visit the main lab to see and experience a much wider range of Quantum energy devices including the Scenar Cosmodic, SE-5 1000, BrainTap, HRV, LASER, Reflex Foot Energizer, amongst others.

Delegates had a great time trying on the BrainTap at Dr. Patrick Porter’s stall, a device that was worn on the eyes like a mask with earphones, designed to retrain the brain waves to perform to their highest potential.

It was a day of exciting happenings and new experiences for every member of the audience.

Earlier in the evening, QEC2’s Star Speaker Dr. Fred Alan Wolf who is known worldwide as Dr. Quantum, regaled the audience with a card trick based on the principle of Focus. It seemed so simple when he explained how it worked! Made one think about what one was focussing on in life and thereby ignoring perhaps other important information.

“YOU-niverse is what you create with your thoughts,” according to Dr. Wolf. Very simply and eloquently, using cartoons and graphics, he explained the principles of quantum physics and of manifestation. One came out of the session with a smile on one’s face, especially after the sweet interaction between Dr. Wolf and Patriji in which the latter said that the scientist was a “Quantum Swamiji”. The session had ended on a high note after an invigorating Q&A.

Later at tea, Yoga Master and Reiki expert Anita said she was pleasantly surprised to learn “the amazing ways in which quantum energy could be used.”

Ruma, a chakra cleansing and balancing expert, relaxing under the pyramid-canopied chairs that lined the path from the main pyramid to the beautiful gardens, was enthusiastic about the great quantum (pun unintended) of learning she gained from the sessions.

It was, in all, a packed day, full of joy and wisdom gained in the beautiful vibrations of Pyramid Valley.

(Quantum Energy Conclave2 was held in Pyramid Valley, Bangalore, from 26th to 28th January, 2018).

Day 1 Of QEC2: Meet The Future Of Energy Medicine Here

Today the starlights of Quantum Energy landed at Pyramid Valley for QEC2, making it abuzz with the latest innovations and creations in the field. The speakers, who came from as far away as USA as well as from closer home, were joyously welcomed by Brahmarshi Patriji, the force behind QEC2, as well as Shreans Daga, the ED of Thriive Art & Soul which organises and manages the Quantum Energy Conclave. They were as pumped up to share their path-breaking experiences in quantum energy medicine as was the audience to hear them.

It was not a coincidence then, that it was Republic Day, the day the Constitution came into existence to keep all the states of India joined together to form a cohesive whole. Quantum energy helps us to keep our body’s constitution at the top of its game by balancing its energies. This is the base of Quantum Energy medicine. Not surprisingly, it takes a lot of its basics from the ancient vedic traditions of Chakras and nadis and energy meridians as well as from our ancient texts, especially the Bhagvad Gita. 

A Holistic Gathering

It was a varied gathering. Holistic healers, alternative health therapists and wellness experts rubbed shoulders with health enthusiasts, college students and medical professionals.

And none were disappointed.

There was Bharat, a businessman from Bangalore, who claimed to visit every year, because, “I want to find out more about things I don’t understand (referring to quantum energy).” Vandana, a gynaecologist, who had travelled all the way from Chandigarh, said she had “come with an empty cup to learn what quantum energy was all about.”

The media was in a tizzy, hovering around for an interview with the international speakers, who uptil now, we’d only seen in YouTube videos.

Mind-boggling Innovations. Fascinating Speakers

And so, when Nipa Das (from UK), the first speaker of the day, took the podium, there was eager expectation amongst the audience. They joined in enthusiastically as she did a warm up of sorts with exercises to help open up the body to the energising vibes. She also shared interesting insights, one of which was the different ways of chanting Aum, depending on whether one’s body was of the kapha, pitta or vatta type, thereby getting customized energy healing.

Next was Dr. Srinivasa Murthy.D from India, who spoke about lasers and how the cellular mechanism of Quantum Energy Medicine works in tissue regeneration. This finds a lot of use in treating Cancer and Leprosy, for example.

Larry Michael Beasley, who hails from the US, gave a presentation that was mostly technical but he also said it like it is: “We have met the enemy and he is US!” This means, you are as prone to self-sabotaging all aspects of your life as you are to enhancing it.
He shared studies that showed that there was a 1000fold increase in the biomagnetic energy caused by a good intention. “Keep in mind that the brain is a smart organ,” Beasley informed us. “When the brain decides to become dysfunctional it will become perfectly dysfunctional in a precise way,” he said. STOP. WHAT ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT? Empowering stuff, hopefully. The brain is listening!!!

Lunch time was a great time to network with other attendees as well as have a one-on-one with the Masters. It was a congenial setting with food native to the region. Jowari rotis sat side by side with tandoori rotis. Channa gave company to a vegetable dish made of drumsticks and boondi while Mysore Pak held sway in the desserts department. Yes, there were the regulation papads, curds and rasam (you foodie you). If the food was as organic as could be, the way it was served was equally so. Plates, bowls and spoons made of dried leaf made the experience more soul-warming and natural.

Post-lunch, many more Masters shared their research and case studies which the audience took in with great attention.

Jan Van Der Est from Netherlands who spoke about allergies, informed how every cell in the body knows how to communicate 24x7 (bio communication). He also spoke about the Morphogenetic field which is shared by the human race. This field gives guidance on an information level, that is through intuition and intention, as opposed to on the energy and body level.

Don Paris, the co-creator of SE-5, demonstrated the power of Radionics and SE-5 technology on cut fresh flowers. This dynamic innovator and researcher from the US also showed an experiment he had conducted at the Pyramid. A tomato he had kept near a pyramid at Pyramid Valley was prevented from rotting by the energy frequencies he kept on sending to it.

Lutie Larsen (from US) speaking about sacred environments said that we are always surrounded by energy which is especially apparent when we are in large groups. But certain shapes create energetic resonance such as the Pyramid at PVI.

From closer home, China, came the young researcher Wang Gang. “Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the best doctors prevent diseases from happening,” he said. His project consisted of incorporating the energies of traditional methods of healing with quantum energy in the form of holograms.

Ecstasy of Rhythms

The stars were beginning to play peek-a-boo by the time the lectures ended.

After-dinner was time for ‘Songs of Kabir’ at the charmingly rustic Amphitheatre. And how! “Mann laago mero yaar fakiri mein…” Singer Vipul Rikhi’s mellifluous voice gave a depth to all that Kabir wanted to convey. And what an ecstasy they wrought. Feet couldn’t stop tapping and hands couldn’t stop clapping. It was only a matter of minutes before Vipul invited everyone to surrender to their inner dancer. The stars smiled as the delegates whirled and swirled even as the notes of the dohas added to the gleam of the moon nearing fullness.

It was an hour later when all turned in for the night, tired but equally excited to wake up the next day at 6am to meditate with Brahmarshi Patriji and the melodious strains of his flute.

(Quantum Energy Conclave2 was held in Pyramid Valley, Bangalore, from 26th to 28th January 2018).

I'm A Thriiver - Anamika Chakravarty

When cancer struck a smooth sailing life, it required Anamika Chakravarty to take a closer look at it. 
Here’s her story and what she learned from it.


I can’t complain about my childhood. It was very happy. We were well off. My father was an engineer with a stable job while my mother was a homemaker. As a child I was never deprived of opportunities to realize my potential even as I went from school to college. After post-graduation I did an MBA from one of the premier institutes in India. I got a job in a prestigious organisation and went on to work for two of the Big 4 consulting firms. A very caring husband entered my life. We travelled the world and had a lot of fun. We were blessed with a cherubic daughter who has grown up to be a remarkable young woman.


Suddenly, around two years ago, I began losing weight. I ignored it but then came the fever that would not go. The blood test showed an ESR of 96 - my body was battling something very big. 

I had actually got a full medical checkup just two months back and it had shown everything was well!!

Now, the sonography showed an enlarged spleen. My GP dispatched me to the hematologist who did a battery of tests. Finally, the PET scan detected cells with ‘abnormal’ activity. These were sent for biopsy.

On 1st Jan 2016, I walked into the hematologist’s room and he said, “You have lymphoma - cancer of the lymphatic system. It is curable. Dr. X is the best for the treatment. I will call the hospital and let them know you are coming.”


I had no energy to ask any questions. My husband, who was trying to understand what was happening, had no questions. My dad asked, in a small voice, “Why? What did she do?”

“Nothing,” was the reply. “We don’t really know what causes cancer!”

I was so weak and so much in pain (the enlarged spleen had squeezed the stomach) that I could not think of anything. I was sure of one thing, though – I did not want to meet anybody!! Not yet.

I have always been in control of my life. And now things were totally beyond my comprehension.


I had to undergo six rounds of chemotherapy. The challenge with cancer is its treatment, which kills the good cells along with the cancerous ones. This means, the first week of chemo is always difficult – lethargy, excruciating body pain, food tasting like cardboard, totally debilitating.

The first cycle was really tough. I did not have the energy to do anything. My daily routine was to consume 4 lt. of liquids daily to flush out all the toxins. I used to sit on my designated sofa and either read or listen to music. The first week after chemo is difficult and immunity is low. But during the second and third week my friends used to come to meet me. Those conversations helped to boost my immunity!

After the first cycle, I started to regain my strength. I had to find answers. I spoke to the assistant doctor and the chemo nurse to know more about the whims and vagaries of the illness. I sought out friends who had had a similar journey. I was determined to fight.


My husband said later that he did not know what to feel. Everything was happening so fast! But the way he selflessly served me is something I will always be grateful for.

We get so anxious when our children have just cough and cold and here my parents were going through so much emotional turmoil to see their firstborn battling cancer.

In the first month I used to unabashedly ask my father to hold my hands or request my mom to press my hands and feet. A friend remarked later that my Dad had become quieter, but he never expressed his anxieties or his fears.

My Mom was a pillar of strength who prepared regular meals for the family and a separate one for me – high calorie and high protein.

One of the greatest investments my husband made was in a medical insurance policy of high value which helped us tremendously.


I have a 13-year-old who was 11 then. At first I just told her I was very sick. But she heard the word chemo and knew it was the treatment for cancer – she is a voracious reader! So I sat her down and explained that it was indeed cancer but it was 100% curable and the medicines available were excellent. She was apprehensive at first but then accepted the situation.

She is a resilient girl and has tremendous inner strength. How my illness affected her I will only know later in life. But I hope the one thing she learnt from this experience is to fight back adversity with a positive attitude.


The medical fraternity has no answers for what causes cancer. So it was up to me to make sense of the madness I found myself in. I read books like Heal your Life by Louise Hay, The Journey by Brandon Bays, and The Power of your Subconscious mind by Joseph Murray. The realization that our thoughts and emotions have an effect on our health and body was revealing.

The spleen signifies the need to control. Before retiring for the day I indulged in serious introspection to determine why I thought it important to control every aspect of my life. I examined each aspect and attempted to systematically remove the root causes. I am nowhere near done, but I am on the path. And I am sure I will achieve what I have sought to achieve.

Another conscious effort I made was to maintain a positive attitude always. If I have a negative thought I immediately bring 5-6 positive thoughts and the negative thought is gone. I indulge in colour therapy. I chant. I see happy movies. I read happy books.

I used to chant mantras or listen to their recordings when I felt weak. As much as was possible, I used to do some basic pranayams every morning.


I am blessed to have gone through the experience without too much unpleasantness. I am a cancer thriver having turned my challenging cancer experiences into a springboard for personal growth. I am now a Cancer Coach and Wellness Counselor and use the science of Psycho-Neuro-Immunology (effect of how we think and feel on our health) to fortify the inner self. I conduct workshops on mindfulness, emotional fitness, meditation and spiritual practice.

I also moderate a page on FB called JoyHamesha where we explore impediments to being joyful 24x7.


The body is our most important instrument. Nourish it. Nurture it. Treat it like a temple.

We cannot predict or control what will happen to us but how we respond is totally in our hands. We can choose whether we want to go through life complaining or with strength and determination.

Strong Connectivity-Weak Connections!

Technology empowers, but disempowers us of our human–ness by Ritu Garg

The GPRS was on! Google Maps was our guide! But our destination still eluded us! We were going round and round the narrow streets of this non-descript village near Aurangabad. The sun was bright and a few village men wearing traditional pagdis passed by. I was tempted to roll down the window and ask the way but I noticed a strong resistance to asking for HELP! GOOGLE had to do it for us!

Is it a weakness to ask for help?  Is it primitive or uncool?

I remembered the time, some 10 years, ago, when one would ask the local people for the way —and that’s how one would learn the dialect, the disposition and the demographic of a certain area.

Our experiences are shifting from organic to technological

We don’t like to err; we seek precision, accuracy and predictability. The dart should hit the bull’s eye in the very first go.  Every little trip is like a mission to Mars – Precise: time wise, distance wise, and destination wise! And we find it uber-cool! (pun intended )

Instant gratification

We are getting used to Instant gratification.  We have a question, next minute we know the answer. Where is the quest, the ignorance, the inadequacy, the scope for guesstimate, the organic learning, the mistakes and the lateral realizations?. Where are those nights when our mind would be making imaginary figures to resolve a geometry question?

We have created robots who behave like humans but ironically we are becoming robots who look like humans. We feel we are controlling the world, but just who is controlling whom:

We have only as much power as there is power in the battery in our phones. Are we spiders getting trapped in our own web? Let our treasury not push us towards our own misery!

Let’s live life and not manage it!

Let’s smell the sweat and the soot, feel the touch through the hugs and the handshakes and feel the oxytocin-rush, see the wrinkles, hear the laughter and sobs.

Let’s be spiritual beings having a human experience instead of humans running away from  human experiences.

(Ritu Garg lives by the words, for the words and of the words. And, her before-the-sun’s-up tea).

An Interview With Don Paris

In this email interview, Don Paris, the co-creator of SE-5, simplifies for us the ground-breaking energy medicine concept of Radionics.

Thriive: What is Radionics? Tell us what led you to this path, because it is an absolutely new term we are hearing more of.

Don Paris: Radionics is a technology which allows the practitioner to gather information at a distance to analyze and balance subtle fields of information and energy for health and well being of plants, animals and other applications.

I was guided to this path by the inner masters. Even though I had seen a Radionic instrument and examined it several years before, I didn’t know much about it. I was led to this master Radionic practitioner. When I met him at his clinic the first time, I got goose bumps all over my body. I knew instinctively that this was what I had been searching for and that I would be working with him. After several years of working together, he turned all of his work over to me and we are still in contact after 30 years.

Thriive: Could you tell us about it in a way that even a layperson can understand easily?

Don Paris: We are energy beings. The entire universe is filled with subtle energy with which plants, animals, and even rocks are vibrating.

Every thing in the universe is created from a blueprint that is pre-physical. This information/blueprint exists on another level or dimension often called astral or mental level. In India, these finer levels of existence are well known and better understood than in the West. The information stored in these blueprints for existence on our physical level is what give form to all of life.

For example, a tree has a basic blueprint on its shape and size as well as design. If this information gets corrupted (just like a program in a computer can become corrupted) by chemicals or trauma or other means, the tree will not grow properly to fulfill its original design and may attract pests to begin to destroy itself. We can do this from a distance because we have access to the higher dimension levels of the tree.

With Radionics, we can analyze the tree to see if it is balanced within the original design or if it has gotten out of balance.

In case of an imbalance in the subtle levels of the tree, we can then begin to re-balance the original patterns so that the tree will recover and grow into a healthy state again.

This is a simplified explanation, but is basically what we can do with Radionics.

Thriive: How can one apply Radionics to daily life and what benefits can one get from doing it?

Don Paris: Since everything is energy and information, we can use Radionics in just about every area of life with health, plants, animals, relationships or even business.

Thriive: You are the co-creator of SE-5. Could you tell our readers what it is and how it works? Is it similar to any device used by the medical fraternity? Where did this research originate?

Don Paris: The SE-5 is the most advanced form of Radionics which interfaces with a computer. The computer helps us to organize vast amounts of complex Informational Fields (which are the basic blueprints I talked about before) and then send those Informational Fields to the SE-5 1000 for balancing our client.

The medical industry does not have any equipment that is similar. Radionics has been heavily suppressed through out its history of over 100 years by the medical industry. The current medical model is based on very old concepts of cause and effect through the use of drugs and chemicals. It fails to acknowledge that we are constantly changing energy beings that occupy many levels of reality. Mental and emotional changes have direct effects on the physical body.

Radionics has a history of over 100 years of providing a holistic approach to health. I have discussed most of its history and how it has helped people all over the world, in my book, Regaining Wholeness through the Subtle Dimensions.

Thriive: Could you share with us any incident in your practice in which SE-5 made almost a miraculous difference?

Don Paris: In my own life, I suffered from migraine headaches for over 20 years. It was a deeply genetic problem on both sides of my family going all the way back to my great grandparents and possibly further.

I tried many approaches from homeopathy, acupuncture, drugs, electro medicine, healers, chiropractic, osteopathy, Rolfing, massage, diet, but nothing worked.

One day, an SE-5 practitioner sat down and worked on me for about four hours and within a couple more weeks, I had no more migraines. That was many years ago now.

Thriive: We are witnessing an overwhelming and unprecedented number of inquiries for your workshop. What can the attendees look forward to in your sessions (both in- and post-conference) at QEC2?

Don Paris: We will have five leaders and teachers of the SE-5 1000 and Radionics speaking at the QE2 conference and also for the five day SE-5 1000 training. This is the first time in history we will have so much knowledge and talent of Radionics and the SE-5 1000 in one place. The QE2 has brought together the absolute best there is.

At the 5-day training, SE-5 practitioners will learn step by step procedures on different applications of the SE-5 1000 in health, business and agriculture.

Participants auditing the course will get an inside look at how people that have been in this field for many years have changed their world and the world around themselves. It is like walking through a door into another universe where the universe is alive and interactive. We become co-creators of life and work with universal principles to create the world they way it can be and should be.

It is one thing to read about miracles in a book. It is totally different to see the people that have been working in this field for many years and see miracles every day. We will not only have teachers from China, Holland, USA and India, but there will also be practitioners from around the world attending the course that are a wealth of information as well.

I am very much looking forward to seeing everyone once again in India and am super excited about this gathering of amazing people.

An Interview With Dr. Fred Alan Wolf AKA Dr. Quantum

In this email interview with Dr. Fred Alan Wolf AKA Dr. Quantum, we learn a few out-of-the-textbook things about Quantum Physics (*hint: it plays a major role in self-transformations)

Thriive: You are renowned worldwide for your study connecting Physics to consciousness. Physics and Spirituality is such a strange combination. Could you tell us how it all began for you?

Fred Alan Wolf:  As a child I began to wonder about light and that wonderment led me to study physics.  I have always felt the presence of God in my life so this early enquiry led me to ask how God made light.

Thriive: How can a layperson understand what consciousness is?

Fred Alan Wolf:  Good question.  The best answer I can give is that we have no adequate way to describe consciousness for to do so we would need to find another property that we could compare it with—and there is none. Hence not only are lay people not able to understand consciousness, but we physicists are also in the dark.

Thriive: How can one use Quantum Physics (QP) to transform one's life? Could you share with us any incident in your practice where QP made a miraculous - and immediately noticeable difference?

Fred Alan Wolf:  Quantum physics is the closest way of thinking we humans have evolved to describe the magic and mystery of existence.  Even though it hasn’t given us nearly all of the answers we would hope for, it has shown a necessary connection between mind and matter—specifically how the choices we make in the world have an effect on how we are able manifest and improve ourselves. By thinking in a quantum physics manner, I have been able to train my mind to be able to see both sides of conflicts whether they are within my own experience or outside of that experience. This has given me a more peaceful and compassionate existence. 

Thriive: What can the attendees look forward to in your session at QEC2?

Fred Alan Wolf:  My multi-media presentations are a tapestry of didactic information, experiential exercises, audio/visual support and live interactions with the audience.  The workshops are entirely experiential, with people experiencing their brains as they play with ideas, sounds, pictures, and their own mindsets.

Thriive: What role have the traditional sciences from India played in Quantum energy?

Fred Alan Wolf: Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world”. To accomplish this we must use the most modern of sciences, quantum physics, and the ancient wisdom from thousands of years ago as perhaps taught in the Bhagavad Gita. By following both, you not only will change yourself, you will be empowered to change the world. This all has to do with learning to use your powers of perception — the manner in which you go about making observations in the everyday world you call your life. In quantum physics, we call this the “observer effect” and the “power of intent.”

How To Choose When Confused? We’ve Got Answers!

We've got answers for all the questions you had about Chanelling but didn't know whom to ask!

We got a lot of questions in the mail after we published Ellaeenah’s journey as a Channel. So, we went back to her and got the answers to those questions.

1. Earlier you said we are all God. Could you explain that further?

Deepak Chopra once said: there’s only one fish in the Ocean. So, when I tell people to proudly affirm, “I am God” - many believe it is a conceited egoistic statement. But the truth is that every single one of us is a Radiant Being of Light. Each one of us can channel. All of us have that part of the brain that can access the Higher energies and convert them into words and images. The only reason I appear different in my ability is because I have done a lot of selfwork and cleared the cobwebs around those areas of my brain.

2. But when someone tries to channel guidance, how can they make sure they are actually sourcing the answers and not just indulging in wish fulfilment?

Supposing two job opportunities have come up, both with equal pros and cons and you want to make a decision based on guidance from Higher Spirit. I am using an example as material as this to let people know that we use this ability, which is our strength and our gift to ourselves, even in the most mundane of situations.

Bring yourself into a state of inner calm. In that moment of receiving the guidance, if you feel an absolute sense of peace with not an iota of doubt (the doubts may come later) then you can be sure it is coming from Spirit. But if the direction is coming from your conditioning or intellectual mind, there will be a feeling of toxins; the inner being will not be open and there will be an actual constriction, and you will find that tightness in your forehead. If you pay attention to your body at that time, it will give you the answer very clearly.

3. What is self-work and what does it entail?

Self-work means asking yourself questions, moment to moment. When faced with an obstacle or a conflict, or you haven’t reacted well to someone or they to you, then the self-work involves asking yourself, “What did I do to create this situation. Why was I not able to speak my truth? Why did I become timid/aggressive?” Our emotional conflicts have such deep roots that we are often unconscious of them. They often form a pattern. You gently urge yourself to look within and find the root. This process is a very slow and painful one. Self-work means getting a scientific-emotional (through a psychologist or therapist) as well as spiritual-emotional (from your inner being) explanation for all that you are going through. It opens us to the realisation that we must have the determination to live happily because that is our divine right.

Making Of A Channel - An Interview With Ellaeenah

 Ellaeenah is a Channel (and she would rather not use such labels as they are erroneous, she says) and we were curious to know how it all began

What were the first steps in your journey as a channel like?

I had heard of channeling but never experienced it. A close friend from school kept on inviting me to the chanelling sessions being held regularly at her place.  Even though I was totally uninterested, I listened patiently and tried not to show boredom. I must have been 20 years old at that time. This cycle of avoidance went on for many years. I got married and even had a baby. When my baby was barely two, I became bedridden with slipped disc.

A college friend of mine, Mehroo, began giving me Reiki. I felt so much better and for the first time I acknowledged that there was something I was ignorant of. This sparked my interest. A little later, a family member needed some kind of help, so Mehroo asked me to bring her to the meeting for Master’s help.

We’d already explored all other options but with no luck. So, we decided to give this a try. Mehroo too had been urging me continuously to attend her sessions. I thought atleast after this visit she’d stop badgering me.

Mehroo used to auto-write. We reached her place, she started writing and almost immediately put her pen down and said, “This lady has to step out.”

 We all looked at each other. My family member got up to go outside so I stood up too. Mehroo said, “No, no, you sit.” There seemed to be some confusion. “I’m not the one asking for the meeting, she is the one,” I said, gesturing to the lady who had come with me.

Mehroo replied, “Yes, I know that and she can come back tomorrow but today the Master wants to speak to you.”


Face-to-face with the Truth

I darted a very angry look at my friend but not wanting to be disrespectful, I sat down and waited.

And then through her, Master wrote and informed me that I had been a very highly developed, telepathic cosmic teacher and messenger through several incarnations. Master also wrote that I should stop resisting my path in this incarnation. At the end, Mehroo said Master wanted me to be a part of that group so that the energy lying dormant within me could get activated.

This was such gobbledygook to me.

Taking up the Challenge

I didn’t reply and hurried out as fast as I could.

When my husband heard about this incident, he said, “Why don’t you go?” Before I could give him all the reasons I couldn’t go (or didn’t want to go, actually) he cut short my rant and said, “I think you are resisting because you are scared.”

I was certainly not scared! And I could never resist a challenge! My husband was flexible with his work timings so he offered to come along with me. I was happy for his company but equally determined to prove him wrong.

We decided to give it a month and I was sure we wouldn’t even go the next day. But months came and went, all doubts and uncertainties disappeared without me even being aware of it.

My husband had seen through my fear. It was only when I did soul work many years later that the true reason for it surfaced: As a cosmic messenger I had been subjected to a lot of torture and persecution in a couple of my past lifetimes and this fear was causing me to resist my calling.

Transcending Resistance

At first, I was just observing. But one day Mehroo turned the book around and pushing it towards me said, “The Master says you will write from today.”  When I hesitated, she said, “Your stubbornness hasn’t left you even after two years!”

I don’t know whether it has left me even now after 20 years (laughs) but at that time I was not being stubborn. I genuinely didn’t know what to do.

The medium gestured to me to pick up the pen and just write. But instead of words and squiggles, I started drawing ancient birds and animals. The pen would go all over the page and would only stop when the picture was complete. This is how I knew I was not controlling the pen because I can’t draw to save my life.

Autowriting came so effortlessly that it became clear it was an ability I had cultivated during my soul journey but was bringing it to my conscious recollection only now. After some time, Master guided me to start taking personal sessions. A little later, Master directed me to give up autowriting and start trance channelling. This was another scary moment but by then my resistance had reduced considerably. Through my selfwork I realised that all these situations had been coming up for me to smoothen my rough edges and to temper my very large ego.

I began trance chanelling but soon Master said, “You have to stop coming. Our work is done. You have to now take this journey on your own and be open to receive the energy of your own Master.”

A few months after that I received the energies of Lord Sananda or Jesus the Christ, whom I call Jadefire.

And that is my journey.

The Channel as a child

As a child I often knew with certainty about people and situations. Once, I remember, my mother was worried about my sister. She had been having fever that refused to come down. I suddenly told her, “Don’t worry, the fever will come down by 5pm today” and it actually did.

I didn’t realise till a long time that not everyone was able to do this. For me, it was just what I did. In the innocence of childhood, I never thought of it as something unique. When my husband brought my attention to this trait of mine that is when I realised the truth of Master’s words (that I’d been a spiritual healer in earlier incarnations).
The Channel as a conduit of energy transmission or why labels are erroneous

As a channel I receive energy which imprints itself on some parts of my brain and has the ability to receive those higher frequency energies. These imprints transform into words and images which I then speak or write of. That wisdom is not of my intellect - it is the combined wisdom of my Higher Self, My Cosmic Self and My Cosmic Master. In the final analysis, it’s all one energy. So, using words like channel, healer, medium creates a distance between us and those that we want to serve.

The Channel as a Teacher

Mehroo has been my spiritual mentor and it gives me great joy to pass the blessing forward by being a mentor too. In fact, I have been a school teacher for more than 30 years. And over the years, the thousands of students I’ve taught have showed me things about myself: where I erred and where I had strength.

I can look back and see myself as arrogant and insensitive, choosing the power of my speech to hurt. Though I regret that, I have forgiven myself. I have understood that I used the arrogance and harshness as a very strong defense mechanism against hurt and pain. My journey has involved me finding the courage to touch that pain, to bring it up to the light, to own it as mine and then to let it go. My immediate family and dear friends have stood by me at every step of this rocky road. And whenever I felt I couldn’t bear the pain anymore or I’d crack, I’d hear Jadefire say, “I’m holding you. Go through this fire. Become the diamond that I know you are but you cannot see as yet.”

So, the years of resistance have, in fact, been a blessing. They’ve been the Universe’s way of telling me that I was not yet ready.

A message to our readers

You are a God! I am a God! We are all Gods! Each one of us is a Radiant Divine being and we should always remain aware of this aspect of us. Always be the God you are! If you are praying to the Gods on your altar but are dishonouring yourself and not loving or nurturing yourself, then I promise you those prayers are only half said. But when, in your prayers, you  bless yourself and say “I love you and I love myself as much” then that is prayer enough.

How I Got My Periods On Track With Meditation

Meditate and hear your body speak by Deepshikha Dhankhar 

I must sound crazy to you! For the first time when this occurred to me, I said something like that to myself too. It came to me last year, when my body started to miscalculate the menstrual cycle, that something was going wrong. Initially, I thought that it was ‘normal’ as we are mostly told. But the feeling lingered. Stress, very little exercise and sleeping late were not the only factors responsible for it.

I also realised that from a completely painless period, my cycle started coming with rather uncomfortable cramps and with a delay of 7-15 days. I was really worried by now. As someone who was inclined towards spirituality, I summoned courage one day and in my meditation, asked my cycle “what are you trying to teach me?” The answer didn’t come the first day but I knew I would have it soon.

As I meditated more and more, memories of bad and unfulfilled relationships started coming up, as a motion picture, giving me an unintentional feeling of disgust. I picked up ‘You can heal your life’ by Louise Hay where I read that when we have any problems with menstruation or PMS, it is due to, “…..giving power to outside influences. Rejection of the feminine processes.” I didn’t quite understand that at first. However, as I meditated further, I started seeing how I had given away my power completely to the other person in those relationships and didn’t love or approve of myself anymore.

And as Hay stated the remedy in her book, I started saying to myself “I take charge of my life. I am a powerful dynamic woman. Every part of my body functions properly. I love me.” In a couple of months, my period was right back on track as I attempted to heal my energies. I learnt that sometimes, all it takes to come back to a healthy body and mind is to release negative emotions.

If you are going through something similar, just close your eyes and talk to your body. It is never too late to a happy ‘that’ time of the month :)
