He is author of numerous professional papers and books and has given seminars, workshops both nationally and internationally. He is associate editor of the journal Consciousness and Physical Reality, published both in Russian and English.
One of the greatest benefits of GDV is measurements of a variety of treatments for such conditions as cancer to determine which is the most appropriate for the patient. Its use for the diagnosis and treatment of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual conditions is invaluable in medicine, psychology, biophysics, genetics, sound therapy, forensic science, agriculture, ecology and other areas.
"Dr. Baraduc further believed that psychic powers could be applied to the treatment of diseases, and in this connection the pictures representing the forms of benedictions and of a flow of curative force at Lourdes during the performance of a 'miracle' are certainly very suggestive. The wonderful cures wrought at Lourdes year after year have hitherto been regarded by the majority of people either as frauds or purely imaginary occurrences, but it is now known that they are well based scientifically and are too real to be any longer disputed. They are, apparently, due to that Spiritual 'gift of healing,' of which [Saint] Paul writes, and the potential curative agency is, seemingly, a mysterious psychic emanation which is sufficiently palpable to impress a sensitive plate."

Are we alone? I think not. It has been an innate human nature, since the beginning of time to look beyond and above for answers to universal questions: What is this all about? Why are we here? What is beyond? Maybe at sometime in the not too distant future all of us will know the answers about life beyond this planet, and our connection to it.
We may think of ourselves as the “new kids on the block” but within the vastness of the cosmos could be far older civilizations active for millennia, greatly predating the human experience on Earth. And if we look at our own advances in technology in the last few decades, it only makes since that “others” could be far beyond us in understanding how all of this works.
Crop circles not only remind me of early cave drawings but also of the Nazca Lines of Peru. The Nazca Lines are a series of geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert, a high arid plateau that stretches between the towns of Nazca and Palpa in southern Peru. Etched in the surface of the desert pampa sand are about three hundred figures made of straight lines, geometric shapes, most clearly visible from the air. The aridness of the desert have apparently helped to preserve the markings.
The Nazca Lines are a mystery, as no one knows who made them or why. It is believed they were created between 200 BC and 700 AD. Since their discovery, the Nazca Lines have inspired various explanations such as they were made by ancient gods, made by aliens, is a landing strip for returning aliens, a celestial calendar created by the ancient Nazca civilization.
In the recent online issue of Kinetics Magazine, published by Kathryn Peters Brinkley, wife of Dannion Brinkley, known for his NDEs after being stuck by lightning, is an interview with former astronaut and founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), Dr. Edgar Mitchell.
Katheryn asked him a question about crop circles:
Kathryn: You know, Dr. Mitchell, one thing that has fascinated me in the last ten years is crop circles. Has IONS done any real research into the crop circles? Do they have an opinion about those?
Dr. Mitchell: I know Colin Andrews quite well, and also Nick Pope, in England, both of whom have been very much involved in the UFO and crop circle area. It is pretty clear these are signals, from somewhere else, to help us see things in a different way. There have been crop circles hoaxed, but by and large, the real ones are not. They are created in this powerful ways we don’t understand, yet.

Losing patience is being self-focused, rather than being other-focused. We all have been guilty at some time of judging others, and when we become impatient we tend to blame the other person, yet, it really is a lack of sensitivity on our part of not understanding, ignoring, or not caring about the needs of another.
Patience, in its best light, is affording the other person to be in their own time, place, or space, and to be accepting of that.
"Patience is the companion of wisdom." ~ St. Augustine
During illness, impatience can easily appear for all involved–the patient, caretaker, observer–as the stresses of the situation build up. If you are able to put into action and proper perspective the needs of another you may discover that impatience will fade away.
Another aspect of patience is patience with self. Often, we are impatient with self by not loving ourselves enough to meet our own needs and to allow new experiences. When we have needs and desires and set them aside and deny our authentic self, we are not happy, and may become angry, resentful, and stressed out. Anxiety builds and that is not healthy.
In both areas of patience we have to learn to be allowing, to give others their space–and to grant that same to ourselves.

Every cubic inch of space is a miracle,
Every square yard of the surface of the earth is spread with the
Every foot of the interior swarms with the same;
Every spear of grass--the frames, limbs, organs, of men and women,
and all that concerns them,
All these to me are unspeakably perfect miracles.”
~Walt Whitman, Miracles
Dr. James Martin Peebles (1822-1922) wrote of his admiration for his contemporary and friend, the influential poet, Walt Whitman (1819-1892) :
“Whitman was a child of nature. He loved alike the loneliness of the forest, the surging throngs along Broadway–the shoutings of children by the roadside and the singing of crickets in the gray of evening time. He was equally at home studying a sunset, riding upon the top of an omnibus, among the convicts of a prison, or sitting in a Quaker church. He was an all-around man, shunning the shallows of fashion and daring the roughness of life. His peerless presence was like a dynamo–radiating vigor and health, peace and good will.”
“He wrote of life as he saw it ‘on the road.’ Fame was to him a bubble to be shunned. Thousands admired both his personality and his verse. Some mocked. He heard the taunt–the jeer–the heartless scoff; but not heeding he continued ‘on the road.’ Now better appreciated, he is receiving unstinted praise from this and foreign lands.”

Today on my other blog I posted Inspiration and Peace Through Music about Playing for Change. Take a look and listen. I believe what Mark Johnson has created along with Jonathan Wells and the hundreds of musicians and singers from all over the world is so very inspirational and incredible.
Not only is their project an example of love but a testament to it. PBS is featuring their new DVD all of the month of August so check your local PBS station to see when it is available.
“Our true nationality is mankind.” ~H.G. Wells (1866-1946)
“True goodness is loving your fellow man.” ~Confucious (551-479 B.C.)
“As you give love, you will have love.” ~Alfred Tennyson (1809-1892)
I love this one, the first song Playing for Change did. Stand by Me was written by Ben E. King, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, and originally done by Ben E. King and was at the top of the charts when it was first released in 1961.
On my other blog I have more videos from Playing for Change you may enjoy. I know I sure do.
