"The more we live in the higher dimensions (we live in 3D, using 5 senses, mostly), the more access we have to the powers of creation that are only available when our beliefs support us. Many a miracle came from a one person 100% believing conduit to and through pure consciousness, pure creative energy, unborn. We live in a practically functioning world we call real. We utilize time out of necessity and live through our fears, desires and projection. All along the way, not striving but thriving is our primary self, quiet, all pervading, still. Unlike the secondary self, it does not think it is running the show, it is the Show."

• Biography

In 1979, sitting with Professor Krishna Pattabhi Jois, affectionately known as Guru Ji, I received a profound picture of what this time of my life would look like. He gave me the name Shyama, another name for Krishna, because I was born on the full moon of August/September, considered by some as Krishna’s birthday. Guru Ji is well known for being the Ashtanga Yoga series originator; in addition he is a professor of Sanskrit, a therapist, priest, astrologer and palm reader. The name Jois comes from the Sanskrit word for astrologer. On this day he read my palm and told me, “after 55, only for meditating in the jungle, you.” Although not completely literal, he saw a profound change that would take place in my life.
