In 1949 Swiss psychologist Carl Jung wrote the foreword for one of the first Western translations of the I Ching. Richard Wilhelm’s translation of this Chinese classic got the attention of the science community because one of the world’s best-known psychologists provided credibility to the 2000-year-old book. A book that many considered too abstruse to be intelligible, or of no value at all. In his foreword Jung introduced the term Synchronicity, which he described as a concept that takes the coincidence of events in space and time as meaning something more than mere chance.
Jung considered synchronicity to be a term that could be used to explain the alignment of universal forces with the life experiences of an individual. Jung believed that many experiences we perceive as coincidences are not coincidence at all, but rather the alignment of these forces creating the situation we find ourselves facing. The I Ching was the foundation of not only Jung’s theory of synchronicity - it also served as the foundation for German philosopher G.F. Hegel’s dialectical theory of history which became the foundation for Karl Marx’s theory of dialectical materialism. The theories of Hegel and Marx made a tremendous impact on the philosophical direction of Western civilization.
I am amazed that a book that is over 2000 years old could serve as the foundation for information technology (Gottfried Von Leibniz’s theory of binary mathematics 1675) and the discovery of the genetic code by James Watson and Francis Crick in 1953. In 1675 Leibniz a Germen mathematician and philosopher was introduced to the I Ching and used his study of the text to confirm his system of binary mathematics, which became the bases of computer science.
In 1953 Dr. James Watson and Dr. Francis Crick announced to the World their discovery of the genetic code, consisting of sixty-four binary triplet figures called DNA codons, which correspond directly to the sixty-four binary triplet hexagrams used to consult the I Ching. We are still learning how to use the genetic code and the future development of information technology will change the world.
In the last paragraph of his famous introduction Jung writes “As to the thousands of questions, doubts, and criticisms that this singular book stirs up, I cannot answer these. The I Ching does not offer itself with proofs and results; it does not vaunt itself, nor is it easy to approach. Like a part of nature, it waits until it is discovered. It offers neither facts nor power, but for lovers of self-knowledge, of wisdom - if there be such - it seems to be the right book.”
All things happen for a reason and there is no such thing as a coincidence if you are reading this dialog and you are interested in learning how to used the I Ching to improve the quality of your life, perhaps you should call 646 329-6727 and schedule an appointment at the Ki Energy Center or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for further information. Many believe that what we call a coincidence is a message from the mind of the universe. Jung used the term Synchronicity to describe this phenomenon.
How Far Can You See?
In a previous article I wrote about how important it is to be aware of and to learn how to use our all-seeing third eye, also known as the pineal gland. The third eye is in the front of the brain behind our forehead in between the two eyes we are aware of. Many are not aware of the third eye, but many may not truly understand how far we can really see with the two eyes we are aware of.
One of my favorite Taoist authors Wu Wei answers the question of How Far Can You See in his book “The I Ching Handbook” by saying “Everything we see is inside our heads inside of each eye are close to hundred million rods and cones. These rods and cones are stimulated by the rays of light that enter your eye which, in turn, create impulses that travel along the optic nerve system to the brain.”
The brain receives those impulses and forms a picture. That picture is inside your head and formed by your brain, within your brain. Master Wei also writes that “We never actually see an object, the only thing we see are light rays being radiated by or reflected from objects.” The view we have of the world is simply a picture that appears to be outside, but actually it is all inside your head.
When I started thinking about this the Magic Eye 3D computer-generated illusions came to mind. If you look at the Magic Eye illusion for a while, a 3D image seems to “magically” appear, this will happen for some quicker then others. I use a Magic Eye book at our center and in workshops as a tool to explain the concept of enlightenment. According to Wu Wei “Changing the way you see things is much easier then changing the things you see.”
We often react to the pictures we see in our heads based on social programming and past experiences. That’s why some will see a glass as half full others, while others will see the same glass as being half empty. This is another reason why I believe it is important to activate and learn to use the wisdom of our third eye; because we really can’t see that far with just our two eyes. It’s all in your head.
Taoist masters of old considered the third eye, ones guide through the invisible world. Human vision is limited and three dimensional; the third eye provides intuitive insight and vision into the fourth dimension which is the pathway to spiritual enlightenment. The material world can be very stressful and illusory; the awakening of the third eye is the first step in seeing past the matrix.
The mind must be in an Alpha state for the third eye to be awakened. Meditation, Yoga, Tai Chi, Ki Training and Treatments are avenues one can take to reach an Alpha mental state, where the brainwave frequency is 9 to 14 cycles per seconds. Ki Energy Treatments will allow an individual to experience a high Alpha brainwave frequency between 12 to 14 cycles per seconds. A fifteen minute Ki Treatment is the equivalent to a thirty minute meditation session.
After a Ki Treatment you will feel in the present, relaxed, and balanced, you will be in Alpha. Many who try Meditation and other energy exercises become discouraged and stop before they learn to use the exercise to reach the Alpha state. Ki Treatments provide the opportunity to experience oneness, a step towards opening the third eye and being in tune with the mind of the universe.
The Mind, Body and Spirit must be in balance to understand the intuitive visual insights of the Third Eye. Life does not always have to be stressful; something that living in the Matrix will never allow you to understand. The Third Eye will allow you to see past the Matrix of the material world. Energy training and treatments will put you on that path.
During my Wednesday Ki training class, we practice an energy movement exercise called Haven and Earth the first movement in this two-part exercise is a training method to help activate the third eye. In ancient Kemet (Egypt) learning to understand and use the power of the third eye was the first step for initiates to master before being allowed to study the wisdom of the ancient mysteries.
Religious persecution made the practice of this ancient wisdom a crime against God, secret societies were developed because of this. The founding fathers of this country were all members of secret societies that understood and used the wisdom of ancient Kemet. This is the reason why the all-seeing third eye at the top of a pyramid can be found on a U S dollar bill; knowledge and wisdom is power.
It is important to understand we have three eyes and the most important eye only a few are aware of. The third eye also known as the Pineal Gland located in the middle of the brain between the two eyes that we are aware of. Learning to activate understand and use the third eye is the most powerful knowledge we can have. It allows us to tap into our intuitive wisdom; the highest level of intelligence of the past, present and future.
To open the third eye, you must first be aware of it. Meditation, Ki treatments and training are an excellent way to start.
The Great Pyramid of Giza was built using sacred geometry, which is defined as how the spirit integrates with matter through geometric form, structure and design. The geometric marvels of the Great Pyramid, the oldest standing structure in the world, have never been replicated, even with today’s advanced technology. It is the only structure in existence aligned true north with only 3/60th of a degree of error.
When you take in the fact that the Great Pyramid lies in the gravitational center of the continents; the exact center of all the land area of the world, one can only wonder about the intelligence of the builders. The sacred cubit is an ancient measurement found carved in stone just above the entrance to the King’s Chamber inside the Great Pyramid.
In 1991 the late inventor Slim Spurling (In the Mind of a Master) developed a copper ring using the sacred cubit measurement equaling 20.6 inches. Spurling discovered that the rings using this cubit length have a natural resonant frequency of 144 MHz, which is a harmonic of light speed. It is also a measurement of a wavelength in the standing gravity wave of the planet.
Further study and experimentation lead to the discovery of the Lost Cubit measurement. The Lost Cubit has a natural resonant frequency of 177MHz which corresponds to the frequency of DNA, thereby facilitating DNA repair and the capability of consciously controlled DNA activation and ascension.
Thanks to the research done by Slim Spurling, there are now energy tools on the market that make use of ancient Egyptian sacred geometry to create a healing energy that modern quantum physic pioneers such as Nikola Tesla (1899) and Albert Einstein (1920) called Scalar Energy or Zero-Point Energy.
Scalar energy strengthens chemical bonds within DNA, making it more resistant to damage. Scalar energy improves the function of the Immune System; it improves mental focus and can cancel out the harmful effects of 60 cycle power line pollution, electromagnetic fields, radiation and microwaves.
If you visit my blog www.theartofwarogers.info I have a number of articles on the amazing period in early Egypt where science and technology was more advanced than what we have today. The Great Pyramid of Giza still stands, built with science and technology that the modern world is just discovering.
You cannot truly understand the amazing intelligence of the culture that built the Great Pyramid unless you take the time to google the many features of this magnificent structure, built with sacred geometric technology. As many of you know, I have been greatly influenced by the work of Wayne B. Chandler (Ancient Future) who provides scholarly research that points out the many contributions the early Egyptian culture have made in the development of mankind.
What is also amazing to me is that in 2018 I am writing about energy wellness tools constructed by using sacred geometric forms, a technology that was developed in Africa (Egypt) around 3000 BC; energy tools that can be used to address harmful exposure to AM/FM radio waves, VHF/UHF Televisions waves, Radar, Microwave ovens and radio-frequency energy exposure emitted from cell phones. A true example of, Ancient Future.
The Manchurian Candidate
Last week I was able to watch both versions of the Manchurian Candidate on Amazon, the first one came out in 1962 and starred Frank Sinatra and Laurence Harvey the remake came out in 2004 and starred Denzel Washington and Liev Schreiber. The plot of the films was interesting, soldiers were captured, and brain washed one of the soldier’s a US senator’s son was programmed to become a deep cover spy and assassin.
This plot was interesting to me because I have always been fascinated by how the conscious and unconscious minds work. We all are victims of social programming, most of the things that we believe to be right or wrong, good or bad are programmed thoughts that we were exposed to from an early age. Then there is the power of suggestion which can be very subjective to both the conscious and unconscious mind.
Many believe that even when we were in our mother’s womb, negative emotions and experiences that our mother might have had, can influence our behavior years later even when we become adults. Then there is Hypnosis which is defined as a state of consciousness in which a person apparently loses the power of voluntary action and is highly responsive to suggestion or direction.
The intriguing thing about any type of programming of one’s unconscious mind is that the person is not consciously aware of the programming but will react if a program suggestion is activated in the unconscious programmed mind. I will always remember the scene in the 1962 version of Manchurian Candidate when Laurence Harvey was playing solitaire on a winter night in a bar near Central Park.
Harvey was programmed to obey any command after seeing the Queen of Diamonds, after seeing the queen of spades and hearing a suggestion to go jump in the lake, in an unrelated conversation. Harvey walked out of the bar took a cab to Central Park and jumped into the ice-cold water of the lake; that’s when Sinatra realized Harvey had been programmed.
If you find yourself doing something and you have no logical explanation for your action, it can be due to some type of programming, someone or something activated an unconscious program that you responded to.
When this happens, many will make up an excuse to justify an illogical action, some will even blame the devil.
There is the story about a subject under hypnosis who is told by the hypnotist that he should take of his jacket when the hypnotist touches his right ear and put on his jacket when the hypnotist touches his left ear. After coming out of the hypnotic state the person started making up excuses to explain to himself and to others the illogical action of taking off and putting on his jacket repeatedly.
The sub-plot of the 1962 Manchurian Candidate film was the possibility of Russians weaponizing a mind control project to create a political coup by gaining influence and control of the President of the United States. The sub-plot of the more recent film made an international private equity corporation responsible for weaponizing a mind control project to create a political coup by electing an American president. As the saying goes sometimes reality can be stranger than fiction.

June 21st is the official first Day of summer. Ancient Taoist masters developed wellness theories for each season utilizing the Five Elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Fire. Fire is the element of summer. For those who wish to use a proactive approach to health I will discuss a few Taoist concepts for summer health maintenance.
The Heart is the Yin organ associated with the Fire element of summer and the Small Intestine is the Yang organ. Mars is the planet, red is the color, love and joy are positive summer emotions and hate and impatience are negative summer emotions.
Heart attacks are more common in the summer and emotion plays a major part. Negative emotions such as anger and impatience can be a greater risk to the heart in the summer.
Negative emotions also create problems for our small intestine.
The small intestine is the digestive tract between the stomach and cecum. Absorption and digestion are not the only functions of the small intestine; according to Taoist theory the small intestine also helps the body digest unsettled emotions.
During the hot summer months negative emotions of anger, worry, sadness, fear and impatience should be avoided as much as possible. If the small intestine becomes over loaded with negative emotions it can become unhealthy. An unhealthy small intestine can cause hormonal and menstrual disorders for women. It can also develop mucus in the lungs and be the cause of back pain and varicose veins.
We are familiar with how the negative emotions of anger and sadness can create problems for a weak heart but worry and fear can also have a negative effect on the heart. The major problem here is that most are not aware of this build up until it is too late. That is why it is wise to be proactive don’t wait until you feel a problem with your health. When you feel something is wrong it is something that has been building for some time which means in most cases it will take some time to cure naturally.
Harmful negative emotions are due to a lack of control of the conscience mind. The negative emotions that we carry, emotions that make us sick are usually a story that plays over and over in our mind. The story in most likely due to some past experience or a mental prediction of a future issue that causes fear or worry.
The Harlem Ki Energy Center can help you develop a proactive approach to summer health thought meditation classes, and special Ki small intestine organ massage treatments. Ki treatments can help the small intestine eliminate toxins caused by negative emotions. Meditation can eliminate negative thoughts which can help develop the positive summer emotions of love and joy.

Hearts of fire create love's desire”, that’s the way of the world according to
Earth, Wind and Fire, one of my favorite groups. Hearts of fire had a different meaning to me in 1978 than it has now. We're moving into the summer season - the season of the element of Fire. The five elements, Earth, Wood, Fire, Water and Metal, are used in Taoist healing practices in China and Korea. Each element is connected to a season, a Yin body organ, and a Yang body organ.
During the Fire element of summer, attention should be placed on bringing balance to the heart (yin) and the small intestine (yang) the fire organs of summer. The negative emotions that create an imbalance in the summer fire organs, such as over excitement of any kind, anger and anxiety, could create health problems. Male/female relationships heat up during the summer months which, if not monitored, can lead to over excitement, anxiety and, in some cases, anger. Remember, you are not your thoughts. Your thoughts are a story in your head. When you start making your thoughts a reality for yourself and others, you're likely to create an imbalance in the heart.
We tend to eat out more often during the summer months, mainly a lot of junk food. We tend to drink more liquids but usually not enough water. This can create an imbalance in the small intestine. Emotional toxins can also accumulate in the small intestine, usually caused or influenced by an imbalance in the heart organ. If you're interested in ways to help your small intestine eliminate toxins and detox, I'd suggest investing in a body cleanse format during the summer.
A great self-help book is Chi Nei Tsang: Internal Organs Chi Massage, by Mantak and Maneewan Chia. This book has an easy-to-follow small intestine massage that’s very helpful during summer fire months. I also focus on internal organs when giving Chunsoo, a Taoist Ki Energy treatment.
Have fun during the summer season but try to maintain a balance in the heart and small intestine, the fire organs of summer. If you practice controlling the negative emotions that can affect the fire organs by clearing your head of unrealistic stories that create most negative emotions it will help you in maintaining that balance. A cool head can bring balance to the fire energy of summer.
Call the Ki Energy Center at 646 329-6727 or email email@example.com to schedule an appointment to explore ways to reduce the stress that can development during the Fire season.
