What dreams may come

What is Hypnosis?

Three levels of consciousness that exist in the mind are:  
1.   The Conscious - the part of the mind associated with everyday awakened consciousness. 
      It does the thinking, analyzing, imagining, and learning, makes decisions,
      and expresses what is to be impressed on the subconscious mind. It is used about 5% of the time.
2.   The Subconscious – the part of the mind that is hidden or unconscious from our awareness. 
      It makes no decisions of right or wrong and accepts what has been impressed on it and creates from there. 
      The subconscious stores emotional complexes, long-term memory, instinct, habits, behavior patterns,
      belief systems, and controls physiological body functions. It is used about 95% of the time.
3.   The Superconscious – this part of mind that belongs to the Higher Self or the Collective Conscious. 
      It is responsible for higher potential, creativity, intuition, quantum reality and spiritual awareness. 
      The superconsciousness is the God or Source energy and is rooted in the Akashic records. 
      It is also called the higher consciousness, super consciousness, objective consciousness, 
      Buddhic consciousness, cosmic consciousness, God-consciousness, 
      Christ consciousness and Super-Human. It is a very high frequency.
      The memories stored in the subconscious can be accessed through hypnosis, 
      which is a form of deep relaxation, where the mind can be focused on long-term memories.

Kalash The Lost Children of Alexander the Great

When the great hero and general, Alexander, who was as great as the god Apollo and Zeus, left his troops here, he asked them to stay here in this land without changing their Hellenic beliefs and traditions, their Hellenic laws and culture until he returned from the battles in the East…”
This is a story that is told not in a village in Greece but on the the mountainsides of the great Hindu Kush. In this remote area of the northwestern region of Pakistan lives a peculiar tribe, the Kalash. The Kalash proclaim with pride that they are the direct descendents of Alexander the Great.
There are many similarities between them and the Hellenes of Alexander the Great’s time. Similarities such as religion, culture, and language reinforce their claims to Hellenic ancestry.
The Kalash are a polytheistic people, meaning that they believe in many gods. The gods that they believe in are the twelve gods of Ancient Greece which makes them the only people who continue this worship!

36 hours in Athens

Panoramic view of travertine terraces at Pamukkale | Turkey

Pamukkale, meaning "cotton castle" in Turkish, is a natural site in Denizli Province in southwestern Turkey. The city contains hot springs and travertines, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water. The ancient Greco-Roman and Byzantine city of Hierapolis was built on top of the white "castle". The area was is declared a World Heritage Site.

Hierapolis was a prosperous city in the Roman province of Asia, situated above the junction of the rivers Lycus and Meander Rivers, 12 miles northwest of Colossae, 6 miles north of Laodicea and 100 miles east of Ephesus. Little is known of its early history. It may have originated as a Phrygian cult center, from which it took the name Hieropolis "city of the heiron" (sanctuary). The city itself is usually said to have been founded around 190 BC by king Eumenes II of Pergamum, with the official name of Hierapolis, possibly derived from Hiera, wife of King Telephos, the legendary founder of Pergamum.

This is a style that George Dalaras has approached with consistency and knowledge throughout his career. In the past, critics in Europe have tied these rembetiko performances with flamenco and fado. Possessing a deep knowledge on the style, Dalaras is one of the singers credited with revitalizing rembetiko music in Greece, making its timeless elements known to Greeks and European audiences, alike .

Freddie Prinze dead at 22, The tragic side of Comedy

Another tragic story, seems comedy is a bipolar, depression and drug use arena, comedy hiding all the pain inside. Freddie died at 22, under the influence of drugs. What a sad ending to what had become a fairytale story. I will always remember him as long as I live, I grew up watching his show and to this day I feel a sadness in my heart that the world lost such a beautiful soul so needlessly, just as we have lost so many before him and after him, the list just keeps growing. Could anything have been done to help him? We will never know.

RIP Loukanikos

Loukanikos, the Greek word for sausage, was about ten years old. He died peacefully on the couch of the man who was watching the once stray Greek dog. His veterinarian explained that his health had been deteriorating, probably caused by repeated exposure to tear gas and chemicals used by riot police during the numerous demonstrations that Loukanikos took part in over the years.

Amal Alamuddin represents Greece in Monumental case

Amal Alamuddin is representing the Greek government in one of the most controversial cultural arguments of recent history as she prepares to try to win the return of the Parthenon Marbles to Greece.
The Elgin Marbles, as they are called in the United Kingdon, are the classical sculptures from Athens’ ancient Parthenon that are housed in London’s British Museum. They were removed from the ruins on the Acropolis by British ambassador Thomas Bruce, the 7th Earl of Elgin, in the early 19th century.
Greece and activists throughout the world call it a a scandalous cultural heist when the marbles were stripped from the temple and taken illegally by the British diplomat under the approval of the Ottoman leaders at the time. British officials maintain it was a sensible protective measure. The rightful ownership of the marbles has been fiercely debated for decades.
The poet Byron protested their removal at the time, musing “cursed be the hour when from their isle they roved”. More recently, celebrities, politicians and average citizens alike have joined the bandwagon to return the marbles to Greece, but British museum officials remain firm that they are the rightful owners.


Cappadocia is mentioned in the Biblical account given in the book of Acts 2:9, with the Cappadocians being named as one of the people groups hearing the Gospel account from Galileans in their own language on the day of Pentecost shortly after the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Acts 2:5 seems to suggest that the Cappadocians in this account were “God-fearing Jews”.
The Natural Rock Citadel of Uçhisar – is the highest peak in the region. It is completely honeycombed with ancient dwellings. Many of these spaces were used as cave monasteries, though today they mostly inspire photographers and artists. Its honeycombed architecture is revealed by erosion and suggests intense fortification and infrastructure.

Past Lives from the mouth of babes

Children can have verifiable past life memories that can be independently corroborated. They can present specific names, places and events that they never can had a chance to know about. These specifics can be confirmed by going back years in the public records. Birth marks and birth defects can show up in situ of weapons wounds that caused their often violent or traumatic death.
