Dee Dee Ferguson . CEO of Foundation and Timothy Murray, Testicular Cancer Survivorr

Sunday, March 3rd, 2019

Connecting people with hope  the way a sunflower always stands tall and connects with the sun.

My first guest, Dee Dee Ferguson, founded Connect4Hope after her mother was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2017. To give her mom and entire family hope, DeeDee wanted to find and share stories of others who had successfully healed from cancer, but she didn’t know where to turn. This led her to create Connect4Hope, where she shares stories of people who have successfully conquered terminal illness, in order to provide hope and inspiration to others. Through Connect4Hope, DeeDee is striving to unite people facing common challenges by eradicating fear and replacing it with hope. Her goal is to provide a virtual bridge to connect and support people in common situations worldwide and empower them with positivity, optimism and inspiration so they can survive their current health crises and thrive.

DeeDee grew up in a tight-knit New England community, which provided her with a great appreciation for relationships and the natural way people come together to support one another when challenges occur. Prior to discovering her true calling, she earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Notre Dame, a master’s degree from Columbia University and worked in Corporate America for 20 years. She is passionate about holistic health and is devoted to reading books on wellness and spirituality. Now she is combining her entrepreneurial spirit with her passion for community and well-being to be of service to others and bring much-needed hope to this world.

Timothy Murray-Musician–Testicular Cancer Survivor  is a minimalist electronic composer based out of Los Angeles. He currently performs with his partner Anna Wallace in the experimental duo called Holy Pink.

Can Music Alleviate Cancer Patients’ Symptoms?

Friday, August 26th, 2016

Logos 005

A new review published by Cochrane Library found that there is significant evidence that music interventions help alleviate symptoms of anxiety, pain, and fatigue in cancer patients, while also boosting their quality of life. Researchers looked at studies that examined the impact of music therapy (a personalized music experience provided by trained music therapists), and music medicine (listening to prerecorde4d music offered by by a doctor or nurse) on psychological and physical outcomes in people with cancer.

Researchers examined a total of 52 trials in the review that constituted 3,731 cancer participants. Twenty three of the trials were considered to be music therapy, and the remaining 29 were classified as music medicine interventions. One of the most important finding was that all kinds of music interventions resulted in a moderate to strong effect in reducing anxiety of patients. For music and pain reduction, they  found a large treatment benefit, and for fatigue they found a small to moderate treatment effect. They also found small reductions in heart and respiratory rates and a lower blood pressure associated with music interventions. Researchers continued “The results of single studies suggest that music listening may reduce the nee4d for anesthetics and analgesics, as well as decreased recovery time and duration of hospitalization, but more research is needed for these outcomes.” They concluded “We hope that the findings of this review will encourage health care providers in medical settings to seriously consider the use of music therapy in the psychosocial care of people with cancer.”

Jeffrey Stegman/Clayten Stedmann Discuss Consciousness

Sunday, August 14th, 2016

flfe- house

Would you like 1,000 monks praying for you?  My two guests today have developed technology to give you an energy that is comparable and will raise your vibrations/consciousness.  Meet Jeffrey Stegman and Clayton Stedmann.

Jeffrey Stegman’s focus has been on creating a high consciousness culture in his businesses, which parallels his own personal spiritual path. Jeffrey is the co-owner of two manufacturing businesses, including one that has been in business since 1835. FLFE is a confluence of Jeffrey’s manufacturing, engineering, business and spiritual evolution. Information at:  http://www.flfe.net

Clayten Stedmann has worked in the education, training and coaching business for over 30 years. For the last 20 years he has focused on business as a spiritual path in his coaching practice. Since discovering Consciousness Kinesiology (CK) in 2004 he has done over five million CK calibrations and created over 10 consciousness assessments and several unique energetic medicine protocols. FLFE is a continuation of his purposeful intention to create the conditions for humanity to have a higher level of consciousness.

Focused Life Force  (FLFE Innovations Corp) is a service company providing a subscription to greatly increase the level of consciousness of a property and around a mobile object to a very noticeable and beneficial level and provides a free trial so that people can feel it themselves.

For centuries people have been making pilgrimages to places around the world known for their cleansing, healing, restoring and loving energy. The highest aspects of this energy can be expressed on the spiritual path and also by being a loving parent, a devoted husband or wife, a hobbyist gardener, a full-time farmer, a dedicated photographer, a steadfast employee and a business owner.

For almost as long people have been working on ways to re-create and harness this energy through study and inventions. People such as Albert Einstein,  Nikola Telsa, Masaru Emoto and Buckminster Fuller are just of a few of the better known of hundreds of researchers who understood that perhaps the greatest contribution to humanity’s evolution that we can make is to raise our own consciousness and sought ways to accelerate that process.

The study of atoms and later quantum physics confirmed what ancient spiritual teachers had been stating for centuries; ‘the law of nature states that everything has a vibration.’ Today most of us use terms like ‘ I do/don’t like the energy or vibe of that room, business or person.’

As humanity evolves new ways of measuring these vibrations emerge. A recent discovery has made it easier to measure vibration in everyday life in order to facilitate positive changes in people’s level of consciousness.

In the latter half of the 20th Century, a very successful psychiatrist, David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., after treating thousands of patients, began to see common levels of thinking, feeling and acting.  He realized that people’s challenges and advances depend on their level of consciousness. He first outlined a scale measuring levels of consciousness or vibration, named the ‘Hawkins Map of Consciousness’, in his New York Times bestselling book ‘Power Versus Force’ (1995). Hawkins, along with a group of researchers, over a period of more than twenty-five years, used kinesiology to measure the level of consciousness in everything they could imagine; people, books, music, events, countries, locations.

Hawkins documented these consciousness levels in a scale from 1 to 1,000. On this scale 200 is the level above which we begin to add energy to everything around us. Below 200 we are net consumers of energy. A few of these levels are: Shame, which vibrates at 20, Fear is 100, Courage is 200, Acceptance is 350 and Love is 500. Enlightenment levels range from 600 to 1000. Today tens of thousands of Hawkins students and practitioners in multiple disciplines use the Hawkins Map to measure and effect change in quality of life and personal evolution.

In 2008 two men met through a mutual friend. They were both working on accessing and utilizing high consciousness fields.  Jeffery Stegman was creating high consciousness fields and cultures in business and Clayten Stedmann, as a coach in business as a spiritual path, was creating high consciousness fields for healing the human mind, body and spirit.

They came together with an inventor who had devoted his life to creating free energy for humanity.  Although he did not create a free energy device, He had discovered a way to re-direct and focus large amounts of life force energy (also known as subtle energy) on an object.

Between Jeff’s experience in engineering and Clayten’s knowledge and extensive practice in Consciousness Kinesiology and the Hawkins Map they re-engineered the original device to broadcast a high consciousness wave to specific locations around the world. At first, Clayten and Jeffrey used the device and associated technology to raise consciousness around the world as a public service project. As they were able to increase the power available and the ability to positively affect a property, they brought the consciousness raising technology to the public as ‘Focused Life-Force Energy’ (FLFE). FLFE Innovations Corp was formed in Nelson B.C., Canada to create the infrastructure to offer the service and to support customers on the FLFE wave.

Today after an additional 8 years of research and hundreds customers and testimonials Jeffrey and Clayten are beginning the process of increasing public awareness of this unique consciousness raising technology. FLFE Innovations Corp offers a monthly FLFE subscription on a property or on a mobile object (FLFE Mobile, also known as the FLFE Bubble).  The technology associates (entangles) the FLFE device with an address or photograph of an object using custom developed software integrated with the FLFE device and creates the FLFE wave that works with the property or object. The FLFE wave will clear negative history (on a property), raise consciousness and increase greatly the positive energy available for people and animals on the property or in a specific radius around the FLFE Mobile Object, as well as many other enhancements.

You are in for an exciting interview about this new type of energy. If interested in trying the energy for free or subscribing to the service use the following link.  https://tm179.isrefer.com/go/TryFLFEfree/Carl113/ 

Effect of Singing on Cancer Patients.

Wednesday, April 6th, 2016

logo1267406_md

A new study published yesterday in ecancermedicalscience  concluded that singing in a choir for just one hour boosts the level of immune proteins in people affected by cancer, reduces stress and improves mood, which in turn could have a positive impact on overall health. One hundred ninety- three members of 5 different choirs were tested. Samples of saliva were taken on each member an hour before singing and again just after and analyzed for changes occurring in a number of hormones, immune protein, neuropeptides and receptors.

Results showed that singing for one hour was associated with a significant reduction in stress hormones, such as cortisol, and increases in the quantities of cytokines (protein of the immune system) that can boost the body’s ability to fight serious illnesses.  One of the researchers said “These are really exciting findings,. We have been building a body of evidence over the past six years to show that singing in a choir can have a range of social, emotional, and psychological benefits, and now we can see it has biological effects too.”  Anecdotal evidence has long shown the benefit of singing in a choir but this study. provides stronger evidence.

Study results also report that those with the lowest levels of mental well-being and highest levels of depression experienced the greatest mood improvement, associated with lower levels of inflammation in the body.  There is a link between high levels of inflammation in the body and serious illness.

A two year study is in progress that will look at the longitudinal effects of choir singing over several months including mental health, wellbewing, social support and ability to cope with cancer in addition to measuring stress

Can Music Reduce the Anxiety of a Prostate Biopsy?

Friday, January 20th, 2012

Recent research published in the journal Urology concluded that noise-cancelling headphones playing classical music may reduce the anxiety and pain of a prostate biopsy that is often used to diagnose prostate cancer.
Eighty eight men were randomly assigned in the study to one of three groups. One group had no headphones, a second had noise-cancelling headphones without music, and the third had the headphones and listened to Bach concertos. Blood pressure was taken on all before and after a trans-rectal biopsy, an intrusive procedure. Among study participants, the diastolic blood pressure remained elevated after the procedure compared to before for both groups with no musical intervention. However, the men who wore the headphones and listened to Bach had no increase in blood pressure and reported less pain as measured on a questionnaire. Anxiety often causes a rise in diastolic blood pressure. This procedure is simple and easy to apply for those needing a prostate biopsy.

Mozart Assists in Detecting Precancerous Polyps

Friday, November 18th, 2011

chelvie4b

Research presented at the 76th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American College of Gastroenterology concluded that physicians who listen to Mozart while performing colonoscopy may increase their detection rate over doing the procedure without music.

In the randomized, controlled study, two experienced endoscopists completed at least 1,000 colonoscopies with or without Mozart music and the detection rates were compared with their baseline rate before the study. For the first doctor the polyp detection rate was 67% with the music and 30 percent without the music. This is higher that the doctors prestudy baseline rate of 21 percent. For the second doctor , the polyp detection rate was 37 percent with the music, and 40 percent without. These are higher than the prestudy baseline rate of 27 percent. Adenomas are a type of colon polyp that are considered a precursor for invasive colorectal cancer so it is important to identify and remove these polyps. The researchers said “Anything we can do to get those rates up has the potential to save lives.” There is a large body of research that shows that clearing the colon of polyps significantly reduces colorectal cancer mortality and when detected in its earliest and most treatable stage, the survival rate for colorectal cancer exceeds 90 percent. This study has a small sample but the results may assist doctors to improve their detection rates of colon polyps.
