Let's begin with a quote from Thomas Berry
" What is the context of healing? Human health is a subsystem of the Earth's health. You cannot have well humans on a sick planet. And that is what we are trying to do, with all our technologies: we are trying to have well humans on a sick planet.
The same principle applies for economics: you cannot have a viable human economy by destroying the Earth's economy. "

One factor that is even more important than nutrition or exercise or belief is whether you are actively engaged in living your brightest vision for yourself and for the planet. Since living One's brightest visions is the greatest satisfaction for the soul it is not that you are not willing to live your visions. Rather - it is one thing to be able to dream something but quite another to have the energy and skills necessary to bring it into manifestation. And yet to not live your visions is ultimately a soul destroying and body destroying process.

We believe everyone has been given a vision of how they can help to bring through a harmonious way of being on this planet - but very few keep this vision burning brightly within their minds, and fewer still manage to live it day to day. Wrestling with the dragons of material limitation and one's own lack of radiant clarity and vitality is unavoidable on the path toward self mastery. To overcome the distractions and limitations of ones inner and outer situation is one of the greatest challenges of a human life. What we call good health is really the reliable functionality of the body such that it can accomplish with ease and pleasure whatever it is reasonable to ask of it.

Good health, abundant energy, joy in the experience of your body - these are especially great blessings in these troubled times.  To sustain them in an environment contaminated with a toxic soup of over 75,000 artificial chemicals manufactured since the 1930s, plus radioactivity and electromagnetic pollution - is not easy. Also the modern lifestyle is disconnected from the rhythms and energy of nature, and often you neglect to give your body & mind the activities that they require. And then of course there is the issue of the quality of the elemental building blocks from which you create this marvelous organism - how pure are the food, the water, and the air, and the energies that you assimilate?
If you dedicate yourself to a healthier more natural lifestyle you will undoubtedly see improvements in your health, but you will be diverting much of your time and energy from creative work that your soul craves, and even then there is no guarantee that it will be enough to sustain good health.

As part of the BirdTribesNetwork's mission to assist people in manifesting their highest dreams then - we would like to offer here some information and tools that we trust will significantly help you to prevail over your dragons. We believe that during this next critical phase of the planets evolution it is important to use whatever non-destructive tools are available to us that will assist us in being optimally functional so as to effectively contribute our gifts to the global awakening process.

In particular we would like to share with you information about 3 aspects of wellness that do make a difference, especially if you already have the spiritual attunement and vision to know how you will use this extra energy and vitality!




Vegetarian food

seedTheir are many reasons why eating meat, poultry, and fish is dangerous to your health and the health of the planet. Perhaps there was a time when eating animals was an arguable moral choice as everything must die eventually and become food for something else - but in view of the global environmental crisis eating meat is simply choosing to participate in the unsustainable madness of modern society.

It is possible to produce enough food to feed all the humans in the world on a vegetarian diet - it is neither possible nor ethically defensible to continue to mass produce sufficient animals for human consumption.
The violence that is subconsiously participated in when eating a tortured animal is felt subliminally as a deep anxiety about ones rightful place in the universe.

The subtle sense of guilt generated becomes a serious impediment to the process of conscious evolution on both an individual and a societal level. It also sets the moral precedent of claiming the right to kill conscious beings without necessity, which opens the door to the possibility of murder and of war.

The form of our physical body, the life, and the intelligence that is coded within that form, are created almost entirely from molecules that are made by plants. If we eat meat we are consuming recycled plant molecules that were gathered by the body of an animal. But where do the Plants get their intelligence from? Are they not sculpted by the interaction of the Elements, sunlight, air, water, and earth? What we are suggesting here is that the intelligence of your body is ultimately the same intelligence that spins the galaxies and stars into existence. The medium that we are designed to draw that intelligence into our bodies through during this phase of our development is the digestion of Plant molecules. There are no essential nutrients that are not created by plants.

We will not go into more detail here nor argue the case any further.
Those who have already understood these things do not need to be told -
Those who are closed to hearing this truth will not listen.
For those who are willing to make the transition now there is an abundance of information about how to make the transition to more compassionate and healthier eating habits.

As anyone who has lived on raw fresh organic foods for a while can tell you from immediate experience how much better they felt - this is because heat destroys nutrition. When food is heated the large and complex plant molecules are broken down into simpler forms that are far less useful to the body. Animals who are regularly fed cooked food develop similar diseases to the ones that plague human society.

We suggest that everyone learn for themselves the benefits of eating a completely raw fresh organic vegetarian diet - for at least a couple of weeks. If you have never done it then you will be amazed how much better you feel. You will also be helping to create a sustainable society, reducing greenhouse gasses, living in a more ethical and less violent way, and improving your chances of living a long and happy life.

However - most of the fruit and vegetables we eat have been bred over hundreds of years for size colour weight and taste -not for nutritional content. Also the soils the food is grown in are often depleted or contaminated, and the fruit is usually picked before it is ripe, and is usually stored and transported - all of which degrade the nutritional quality.
Therefor we recommend eating raw food in conjunction with vrious 'superfoods' that are now availalbe, and/or, taking top quality concentrated plant nutrient supplements.

~    Nutraceuticals  ~

"Let your food be your medicine and medicine be your food."-Hippocrates ( know as the Father of Medicine )

The science of nutrition has come a long way in the last half a century! So much so that we are beginning to decode the molecular language of the cells themselves.
Nutraceuticals (Pharmacuetical grade nutritional products) are effective and scientifically proven, but unlike drugs they work with the body by giving it an abundance of what it needs to function properly.

cellThere is a vast difference in quality between a state-of-the-art nutritional product and a supermarket shelf version. Intelligent nutritional scientists have at last taken seriously the dependence of the functioning of the human bodies cells on plant molecules, and they identified many key ingredients in the recipe for optimal health. They have realised that nature knows best and that synthetic chemicals and inorganic minerals cannot compare to the genuine plant nutrients that we are designed to live on. Technologies have been developed to concentrate these nutrients whilst damaging their structure as little as possible. We have also learned the benefits of leaving the nutrients in the food matrix that combines them with all their co-factors.

This knowledge is a great gift of the spirits that oversee the green garden of life. It is no accident that we have reached this landmark of evolution - the ability to recognise and concentrate the most important nutrients from the plant kingdom - at a time when we need it most.

Our modern diets are among the least nutritious diets in history, and yet our situation is one where we need more nutrition than ever before to cope with the toxic overload and constant stress of modern life.
The difference between the average health food shop or supermarket vitamin and mineral and the new Nutraceuticals products is enormous. Many of the old supplements are synthetic or the active ingredients degraded, and their overall effect is to do as much harm as good. Nutraceutical products on the contrary are of guaranteed potency, tested for efficacy, and support the most important systems of the body. They seek to replace the missing nutrients that our bodies expect - but do not get - from the modern diet (even a healthy and organic one). Taking these nutraceutical products regularly can make a very significant difference to the bodies ability to maintain or recover functionality.


The major categories of essential nutrients that are important to take as supplements include:

phytonutrients - molecular 'ripeness' - antioxidant & many other functions still being discovered.
phytosterols - building blocks for the endocrine system (glands) to make hormones from.
vitamins and minerals from plant sources. - synthetic or inorganic ones are not the same, and its important that the molecules are still in an active form when you take them.
antioxidants - essential for minimising damage to our cells from toxin in the environment and our food and water.
essential fatty acids (omega3) - very important for brain, eye, heart and circulation among other things.
Probiotics - because healthy intestinal flora is an integral part of among other things the immune system and nutrient uptake.
biologically active carbohydrates - a new class of nutrients which are the language of the cells. Perhaps the most important missing nutrient in modern diets. A key nutrient involved in almost every aspect of healthy physiology and metabolism. 

In these critical transitional times it is a great blessing to have access to these supplements that allow the physical body to be more functional and the mind to be clearer, and thereby free the soul to be more effective in its work.

Those who live a natural lifestyle - by which we mean connected to Nature, flowing with its rythyms, breathing and moving spontaneously throughout the day, free from excessive mentalisation and anxiety - will have little need for what we call exercise. Like healthy children they will fulfill their bodies needs through the play of moment to moment experience. However, most people will find it very beneficial to regularly do some form of physical activity that corrects the imbalances caused by our more sedentary lifestyle.

As one modern teacher puts it - "The usual activity of most men and women involves a compulsive breaking and obstructing of the life-current [in the Circle of the body-mind], thus creating tensions and inharmonies within the body. Whether acting or at rest, we are usually involved in an endless ritual of twitching and shifting the body, always compensating for the pain and discomfort of our usual condition. Through the conscious use of the body, while being randomly mindful of bodily movement and posture, one is able to observe and understand the ritual of bodily compensations and pass beyond them into a stable, harmonious condition. Therefore learn to use the whole body consciously and intuitively in ordinary life and meditation." - Adi Da Samraj

coverOver the next few years the BirdTribesNetwork intends to produce a series of DVDs on balancing the physical body through such practices as Hatha Yoga & Chi Gung. In particular we will focus on integrating these practices with an awareness of the 5 Elements and the insights of Sacred Geometry.

You can find some introductory materials regarding integrating the practice of Yoga with awareness of the 5 Elements at www.yogaverse.com home of the Universal Yoga Mandala poster.




Mental and Spiritual health are intimately entwined with physical health. Though the generalisations you find on this page may be useful to you, ultimately your health is a personal matter between you and God, (however you may conceive of Her ;-)

Like all of life, when it comes down to it, health is a mystery to be profoundly experienced not a problem to be superficially solved. We believe that any practice that suits you can be of benefit, as it is not the practice itself that has the power to heal. Rather the power to heal is within yourself, and the technique simply gives you the opportunity to access it !

There are thousands of different types of practices that go by the name of meditation or prayer. What unites them all is that they involve taking the time to focus the mind on something other than its habitual obsessions. Meditation and prayer intrinsically involve creating a time for the mind to be empty of its habitual patterns, or observing them without the normal grasping and attachment, or replacing these patterns with other more beneficial ones, or developing a compassionate attitude by asking for guidance and blessings upon ones life and upon the lives of others.

'observing reality' meditation courses that are held regularly all around the world.

Vipassana is one of the most powerful and pure mediation techniques. Translated as 'insight meditation' or 'observing what is', it can be used to develop incredibly developed awareness of every perception at the same time as developing the equanimity necessary to function in such a hightened state.

It could be said that of all the world's religions, the one that has studied the science of meditation most deeply is Buddhism. Tradition says that the Buddha taught that the cause of suffering is not in external things but in our own habits of craving and aversion.

Theory and Belief

The germ theory of disease sees our bodies through the metaphor of a besieged country whose borders are constantly attacked by enemies. Lois Pastuer who was the main architect of this theory spent his whole life arguing with Claude Bernard and Antoine Bechamp who had a competing theory that emphasised the internal fitness of the body, 'the terrain', as being the deciding factor. On his deathbed Pastuer is said to have recanted - "“It is not the germ that causes disease but the terrain in which the germ is found.”

A Quote from 'Conversations WIth My Higher Self' by Kenneth J M MacLean - You can read the whole book here

" A virus is nothing more than a thought stream to which much attention has been given; it has been honed and clarified and agreement reached upon it. Then that thought stream is launched, as it were, out into the broader world where it is broadly agreed upon, amplified, and further clarified; the consciousness within the biology of the invader, being interrelated with the consciousness of the human, responds accordingly and so disease and illness manifests within the body. As per our discussion above, the vibrational pattern of the thought stream is mirrored in the cellular structure of the virus or disease or whatever is the active agent of the illness. The mistake that is made is to assign cause to the biological manifestation, rather than to the thought stream which molds or directs the biology. We tell you without reservation that if you truly understood the power of your thought, you never would suffer unwillingly, ever again!! "

"Now how do you stay healthy? By being responsible for reception and release, assimilation and elimination. If you are not so responsible, you become toxic and enervated. Toxicity is the failure to release, to eliminate. Enervation is the failure to receive, to be sustained, to assimilate." Adi Da Samraj

"Cancer itself is evidence of an absence of focalization upon the divine geometry of the internal crystal of the soul and of every living cell. When children can pour their light into a cup of beauty and the dimensions of mathematics portrayed, the very dimensions themselves then impressed upon the cells prevent the aberrations, such as a manifestation of cancer or the vulnerability to the attack of the virus."
Elizabeth  Clare Prophet

Here's another quote from Adi Da Samraj about spiritual sustanance - "There is a fundamental disposition in us to be contracted in our feeling. It is not really the result of our experience, whatever our experience. It may be reinforced in all kinds of social and other chronic ways, but it is not the result of experience. It is our philosophy, our point of view, our disposition. It is the presumption we make in the instant we recognize our functional independence. Thus, "I/me-apart" is felt as "you don't love me" and therefore lives as unlove, as "I don't love you." Such unlove remains our disposition until we become awakened from that sleep, from vital shock, from the shock of birth, not the birth trauma in the pure physiological sense, but the recognition of independence, in which we each steadily and increasingly observe that we are vulnerable, that we are subject to circumstances, that our very existence can apparently depend on circumstances. The more you observe existence in that disposition of vital shock, the more justified you feel in presuming under all conditions that "you don't love me.
   What is of interest and significance about diet and health is implicit in this consideration, this metaphysical supposition by which everyone presently lives and also by which he interprets his past. Birth, or the recognition of one's independent existence, is interpreted by us to be separation. It is interpreted by us as an instant, prolonged through time, in which we are essentially unloved. And all of that interpretation is based on the feeling that we are not sustained. In other words, independent existence itself is felt as separation from the ultimate food source."
