Autumn the Season of Metal

Autumn the Season of Metal
When you enter the meditation and training room at the Harlem Ki Energy Center, you will see a circular symbol which represents the five elements Fire, Water, Wood, Earth and Metal.  This symbol is called the Symbol of Truth by many Taoist because the five elements are considered to be the true foundations of life. Autumn is the season of the element of metal. Each of the five elements has a relationship with the universes and the human body.

The Yin/Yang organs that correspond to the element of Metal are the Lungs (Yin) and the Large Intestine (Yang). It is very important to develop a detoxification strategy in autumn, to prepare for the coming winter. More people die from colon cancer and lung cancer than any other cancer related disease. Special attention should always be given to the care of the lungs and large intestine in the autumn.

The large intestine is the last part of the digestive system in humans and all vertebrate animals. Its function is to absorb water from the remaining indigestible food matter and then pass useless waste material from the body. The large intestine consists of the cecum, colon, rectum and anal canal.

The lungs mix blood with oxygen, and expel used air, carbon dioxide, and other toxins. The lungs control skin and sweat. The following are recommended ways to detoxify the large intestine and the lungs.

Ki Energy treatments always start with detoxifying pressure to vital organs located in the abdominal area and the four lung detox points; a very good reason to have Ki treatments especially in the autumn. If you are not able to schedule an appointment for a Ki Energy treatment at our Harlem wellness center  Taoist master Mantak Chia gives instructions on how to do it yourself in his book Chi Nei Tsang: Internal Organs Chi Massage.

Korean grand master Insan Kim a legendary Korean Taoist herbalist and healer, perfected the alchemy of transforming Korean sea salt into what is called “Divine Medicine” or Bamboo salt over 100 years ago. Using Korean folk remedies dating back thousands of years master Kim used the Five Elements Water(sea-salt) contained in Wood(bamboo) sealed by Earth(pure mineral clay) confined in Metal(iron furnace) to be transformed into Insan Bamboo Salt by  yang Fire created by yin Wood (pine resin).

If you visit look for Jukma healing tablets to detox the entire digestive system. If you use my code harlemkiny you will receive a 15% discount thanks to my good friend Korean Taoist Ki master Angie Ahn who runs a Ki energy center in L.A. , and is the American distributer of Bamboo Salt products.

Pure organic Korean Panax ginseng, which is considered the best ginseng in the world, has been used as a natural detoxing herb for centuries. This pure form of ginseng was introduced to America only six years ago and can be ordered at the Harlem Ki center.
To learn more about detox strategies call the Harlem Taoist Ki Energy Center 646 329-6727 and schedule an appointment. The first day of Autumn is Thursday September 22nd. There are special breathing exercises that will provide support for the lungs. Autumn the season of metal is a good time to learn them.

DNA The Key to Life

DNA, the Key to Life
In 1953 James Watson and Francis Crick announced their discovery of the genetic DNA code to the world. Wayne Chandler made note in the book “African Presence in Early Asia” (by Runoko Rashidi and Ivan Van Sertima) that the sixty-four binary triplet hexagrams in the Taoist classic book of change known as the I Ching, corresponds directly to the sixty-four binary triplet figures called DNA codons discovered by Watson and Crick.

It seems that while modern-day science is just discovering the secrets to the key to life, research is showing that ancient Taoist wisdom addressed answers to questions we are still asking today, questions such as Who are we? and What is our purpose in life? In 2000 J. Craig Ventor and Francis Collins announce the sequence of the entire human genome. Their project known as the Human Genome Project created data files of twenty to twenty-five thousand genes in human DNA, and the three billion chemical base pairs that make up human DNA.

In 2003, science finished mapping the sequence of the human DNA. This has allowed for advances in health research and also police and legal work. Ancient Taoist believed that our genes can be altered by our emotions and experiences. Margret Ruby supports this ancient theory in her book “DNA of Healing”. Ruby writes about ways to program your DNA for health wealth and positive relationships.

Dr. Peter D’Adamo writes in his international bestselling book “Eat Right for Your Type”, that “a single drop of blood contains the entire genetic code of a human being. This DNA blueprint contains eons of genetic memory passed on from our ancestors”. Dr. D’Adamo’s  blood type diet gives a break down about foods that individuals should or should not eat according to their blood type.

The belief that memory locked in human DNA that is passed on by our Ancestors not only determines the color of our eyes and hair, but our behavior patterns is not new. Ancestor healing techniques have been practiced in Asia, Africa and South America for thousands of years. We now see both ancient wisdom and modern science agreeing that ancestor training can address negative unconscious programming that we inherit from DNA passed on from generation to generation.

Techniques for neutralizing the negative unconscious programming  that we all inherit from genes passed on from generation to generation; cannot be effective unless the exercise is approached with faith, an open mind and a desire to improve the quality of life.  Negative unconscious programming can affect the ability to maintain positive relationships both personal and professional. Good health, financial  stability and personal growth can also be affected by negative unconscious programming.   

If you would like to learn more about ways to neutralize negative unconscious programming  the Ruby book gives suggested options, you can also visit the Ki Energy Center to learn ways to address this issue. Call 646 329-6727 for additional information  send a email to

We are experiencing a greater understanding of the oneness between energy and matter, our oneness with the universe and the universe with us. This understanding has led science to have a new respect for ancient wisdom in addressing health-related issues and improving human potential. The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) (see has taking a leadership role in legitimizing the spiritual science movement.

The IONS organization conducts scientific research focused on topics such as meditation, consciousness, energy healing, spirituality, human potential, psychic abilities, survival of consciousness after bodily death and many other topics that have influenced the growth of the spiritual science movement. The wonders of ancient achievements in early Egypt for example were due to an interface between spirituality and science.

The early political developmental actions of organized religious orders created a separation between science and spirituality in Western cultures. A separation that the spiritual science movement is beginning to reconnect; yet most people have no idea about this movement.

Dan Brown’s (author of The DaVinci Code) best seller “The lost Symbol” features IONS, in his exciting tale, combining fact with fiction in a plot structured around actual research being conducted by IONS. Brown’s book indirectly exposed millions of readers to the spiritual science movement.

I became aware of this movement to reconnect science and spirituality to benefit health and human development when a Ki Energy Master from Australia introduced me to the classic film “What the Bleep Do We Know”. This wonderful film gives examples of how facts discovered as a result of research conducted by quantum physics experts, explain why and how many ancient spiritual concepts that address energy healing and wellness work; from a scientific point of view.

Social programing still prevents many from understand the benefit of Ki Energy treatments and training, meditation, Yoga, Tai Chi, and other energy movement exercises. The power of thought manifestation and attraction are among the topics that are now no longer considered just new age concepts and theories by many in the scientific community. Organizations like IONS have proven useful to many practitioners in the energy wellness community.

When I give a consultation at the Harlem Ki Center I find that the ancient wisdom that I have been blessed to possess and practice can be received better by some when it is combined by scientific facts about how the movement, management and balance of internal energy can be a major factor in addressing health and the well-being of the human body.
If you visit my blog at you will find a number for articles on ancient wisdom concepts and theories, focused on methods for expanding consciousness; organizations like IONS are now providing research to support this ancient wisdom. 

The fact that you have read this article speaks to the spiritual law of “Causation”; all things happen for a reason, nothing happens by chance.Nature is selective and methods for significantly expanding human consciousness will be necessary tools for staying on the positive side of the next stage of human evolution. This dialog is coming to you for a reason, perhaps you should explore further.

Mental Transmutation

Mental Transmutation
The Principle of Mentalism is the first principle and what many believe to be the foundation for the seven Hermetic Principles (see Kybalion The Three Initiates, who introduced to the masses, the teachings and wisdom of Hermes; in their world famous publication “The Kaybalion”; believed that this secretly guarded ancient wisdom should not be keep from the masses,. They also believed that “The lips of wisdom are closed, except to the ears of Understanding”. 

When ancient Kemet (Egypt) was at her pick in the study and practice of science, psychology, astronomy, philosophy and architecture, the legendary master teacher Hermes was considered the greatest of the great. It was true then and it is true today “the study, understanding and practice of the seven Hermetic Principles can open the door to a universe only a few have experienced”. Understanding the principle of mentalism is the first step to that journey.

According to the Kybalion “The understanding of the Hermetic Principle of Mentalism will enable an individual to readily grasp the laws of the Mental Universe, and apply them to their wellbeing and advancement”. It goes on to say individuals will be enabled to apply intelligently the great Mental Laws, instead of using them in a haphazard manner”.

The Universe is Mental according to Hermetic Philosophy, the underlying reality of the Universe is mind, and we are all connected to the mind of the universe. Our ability to manifest material reality from mental thought is because of that connection.
The Kybalion states that “If the Universe is mental in its nature, Mental Transmutation is the art of changing the conditions of the universe, along the lines of Matter, Force and Mind; mental transmutation is the magical art used by the ancients that we know so little about”.

We are just beginning to understand the power of thought manifestation; many still use this ability unwisely. What you think about often will manifest itself into your material reality. This fact is now more important than ever, our socially programed mind is programed to keep us believing in the illusions of a matrix that is changing.
We are moving into another level of human evolution; survival will soon depend on a different way of thinking of yourself, of your abilities, of your environment and of others.

We now know that there is a circular pattern to all things, there is nothing new under the sun. The concepts that I am writing about are not new they are ancient, but will become important survival tools for our journey into the future.
I recommend reading the KYBALION a few times; it will be a great start to a mental journey towards enlightenment.

Turmeric the Super Spice

Turmeric the Super Spice
I have a few articles on my blog ( about the amazing healing properties in organic Panax ginseng. Warning all ginseng is not the same. Only organic Panax ginseng has the ability to build resistance and reduce susceptibility to illness among many other benefits. 

The commercial ginseng most people have access to can actually be harmful if it is not organic and some commercial ginseng is grown with pesticides and manufactured with chemicals. Our Ki wellness center is one of the few locations in New York City that distributes organic Chinese-Korean Panax ginseng.

If organic Panax ginseng is the most powerful healing herb, Turmeric is the most powerful healing spice. I was first introduced to the healing power of turmeric many years ago when I was training to become a certified Ayurvedic practitioner. Turmeric or “haldi” as it is known in Hindi; has been used for thousands of years in traditional Ayurvedic medicine.

Turmeric is the most powerful antioxidants you can consume, it is one of the strongest fat-burning, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial spices in the world. Turmeric grows in India and in many tropical areas in Asia. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric its color is bright yellow. Its unique pungent taste can be found in many Indian dishes.  

My Ayurvedic training allow me to learn how turmeric can be used to address fevers, infections, weight loss, liver and gall bladder issues; plus the prevention of Alzheimer’s and heart disease. The curcumin in turmeric has been known to reduce the oxidation of plaque on the artery walls. Do to my recent injuries I use it as an anti-inflammatory aid.

According to the Nutrition and Anti-Aging Health News Letter, studies have shown turmeric to be a powerful weapon against cancer cells. Not only has research proven that this special spice can prevent cancer cells from growing but can also slow the growth and spread of cancer in patients. The curcumin in turmeric was proven to be more than twice as effective as known cancer drugs like paclitaxel.

Turmeric is can be used as a dye, if cooking or using turmeric never let it get on your clothes it will leave a stubborn stain. Curry contains turmeric but it is combined with other spices and is not as powerful as pure turmeric. If you use turmeric try to buy it in an organic form. I use turmeric capsules by Science Natural Supplements which we carry at our wellness center.

There is a great deal of research on the health benefits of turmeric on line if you are in a healing mood like I am organic ginseng and turmeric should be a part of your wellness and healing strategy. Just as I mentioned with the use of ginseng make sure you know how the turmeric you consume is manufactured it should be organic if possible.
