Elisha Christopher delves into the thinking necessary to synthesize a divided world when Mother Nature has “sent us to our room” to reconsider our relationships with each other and the planet. With original thinking, he draws from a very diverse field of knowledge and values to suggest how we can solve problems at a level above where we created them. He is the fourth in my series with Millennials.

You’ve seen the tiny houses, as people downsize, to save on mortgage bills and to make a smaller footprint on the earth. Well, that concept could also apply to gardening. Some predictions say food will become increasingly scarce, causing us to rethink our sources, to be more local and home grown.

These subtle energies are often overlooked in that fast-paced world we’ve left, where we wanted to immediately and strongly feel the effects to know they are working. If medical systems are overtaxed, we may need to rely on home remedies to strengthen our health. My book, Change Within, Change the World, talks about subtler resources which include color, light and Nature in Section IV.
Not only do our eyes see light, but our whole body is light sensitive. Our skin absorbs light and acts as a prism to break out the different colors, which become information to the body. Blind people can accurately detect colors with their hands. We absorb the light around us just as much as the […]
Colors are more than esthetics or personal preference. They have a direct influence on our entire being. Colors can not only clear destructive patterns but also turn on fresh qualities of intelligence. Color and light control our biological clock, our moods, our sleep and wakefulness, subjective energy levels and even our appetite for carbohydrates. Color […]

Remembering a technique from Serge King, I quickly reviewed the events leading up to the moment to clear any emotional causes in […]
Do you remember, perhaps from childhood, someone or maybe a pet that you loved dearly with all the passion and unconditionalness that a child can feel? Sometimes it was a grandparent or a favorite aunt or uncle. For others it was their dog, their best friend and constant companion. Or a “bestest” friend or first […]
Is there a connection between our physical body and our mind? Imagine you are holding a large, ripe lemon. You scratch the peel and sniff that lemony smell. Now imagine you cut it in half and sniff the inside. Now lick it. By now you are probably experiencing something in your mouth, like a puckering […]
