Chemistry Offers a Lesson for Life

The first drops of liquid you add to a solution don’t change the acidity much. The graph stays rather flat.

After adding drops for some time, however, you hit the “phase transition.” The acid level starts to change quickly. The line on the graph rises steeply, as each new drop has a profound impact.

At the end of the phase transition, the graph levels off again. Your drops aren’t that effective anymore. The solution has achieved a new stable state.

Over 45 years ago, a brilliant German chemist, Dr. Hartmut Schenkluhn, described this “titration” process to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) Technique. Dr. Schenkluhn added an important nuance.

The quality of your drops during the first slow-moving phase are not important. High- or low-quality drops will work the same.

But once you hit the fast-moving phase transition, the quality of your drops becomes all important. High quality drops will result in a bigger overall change before the graph levels off again.

He concluded that it is important to use high quality input during a phase transition in order to achieve the best results. Maharishi responded that that was the reason why he introduced an advanced meditation practice to the world when he did.

I learned a lot from Maharishi. Not only did I become a TM practitioner, I followed his lead by identifying patterns of intelligence that repeatedly express themselves in different arenas—phase transitions in chemistry, collective consciousness, and activism, for example.

Phase Transitions as an Activist

It wasn’t difficult to see how the lessons from chemistry play out in my activist work.

For decades, I convinced individuals, organizations, and governments to adopt healthier non-GMO food and agriculture policies. In the initial phase, I provide lots of information. As they first evaluate the data, they don’t yet make changes.

The knowledge I provide is like the drops into the solution. The graph that plots their changes starts off pretty flat.

Then they decide, “I need to make a change!” That begins the phase transition.

Up until this phase, the information was mostly about why to make a change. At this point, they need to know how. The input needs to be more precise, relevant, often customized, to help them sort out new criteria, shift buying habits, alter ways of eating, serving, or growing, or pass and implement new laws or policies.

The quality of the advice during their phase transition determines how successful and far-reaching their changes become.

Once those new choices become their default, it’s usually hard to initiate additional changes for a while.

(Industry lobbyists put a lot of effort and resources into phase transitions, to dumb down regulations. Their low quality input results in stunted progress. But I digress.)

The Pandemic Lock Down as a Global Phase Transition

After a month into the pandemic, I started asking people, “What’s the best thing you’ve gotten from the lockdown so far?”

Nearly everyone commented on their readiness to make a change in their lives, once it was over. Either they gained more appreciation for something they had to give up, or they found unexpected satisfaction in new activities that they wanted to maintain.

The details were different, but nearly everyone declared, “I need to make a change!” That’s the hallmark of a phase transition. The pandemic lockdown had done the heavy lifting, compelling vast numbers of people to rethink their habits, lifestyle, and choices.

To me, it was obvious that this was the perfect time for people to receive the highest quality input on how to create that better life for themselves.

And who better to give that advice than the wisest thought leaders of our generation?

I gave it a try.

A Magnificent New Normal

In the fall of 2020, for 40 days and 40 nights, I shared interviews with some of the most outstanding and brilliant people on the planet. I called the series A Magnificent New Normal, and designed it to help people make better choices in all areas of life:

  • Health
  • Relationships
  • Money
  • Emotional mastery
  • Trauma healing
  • Spiritual development
  • Indigenous wisdom
  • Mission and service
  • And transforming our world together.

I heard over and over again stellar comments from audience members:

“The most uplifting summit I have ever come across.”

“In my 73 years of life, this was by far the most magnificent series of talks I have ever heard. Each speaker, masterfully interviewed by you, gave new insights and great hope for creating a far more magnificent self and future.”

“You have brought together some of the finest minds to spread the words of change.”

“Your work here has been a boon in my world.”

“I have been profoundly touched and renewed / supported by your daily Magnificent interviews. These sharings have been a haven, a place of refuge, a place to lean into my own regeneration, in these very interesting and chaotic times. What a gift…”

“This series marks a definite leap in the evolution of consciousness.”

“Thank you for creating this program for humanity at this time to empower us to birth a new world.”

I started each interview with the same two questions.

The first: “What’s your vision for a post-pandemic civilization?”

Each person brought real gems, with mind-opening and heart-opening depictions of what they think is possible for humanity.

The second question: How can we live the highest version of ourselves?

The responses were magnificent and opened the floodgates to the “high quality input” I was hoping for.

Highest Version of Yourself Community as Phase Transition

Those who join our Highest Version of Yourself Community do not require a lockdown disruption to become motivated to improve their lives. Its very name attracts people who seek profound growth and transformation.

The community is therefore a natural place to re-introduce the wisdom of the Magnificent New Normal series.

All videotaped interviews, along with audio and transcripts, are now available for everyone who joins the $10 per month Highest Version of Yourself Community.

(Alternatively, the summit can be accessed as a standalone course for $108, but I highly recommend the community option. Members will gain access to lots more tools and knowledge.)

Free Excerpts in Newsletter

Starting soon, subscribers to the FREE Highest Version of Yourself Newsletter (and the Live Healthy Be Well Newsletter) will receive video excerpts of answers to the second question: How do we live the highest version of ourselves?

There’s a lot of interviews. It will take about a year of newsletters to get through all the excerpts.

I recommend listening to the full interviews instead, either as part of the community or purchased as a standalone.

And if you join the community, I’ll see you there. I’ve got lots to share about quantum magic transformations.

Thinking for the World

If you follow my work, you know that I am planet-centered. My natural inclination is to serve on behalf of the bigger picture, e.g. protecting all living beings and all future generations from GMOs, safeguarding biological evolution, etc.

I am not giving up on this work. You will still find me in podcasts, articles, films, and summits, speaking about GMOs.

But this work on consciousness is also planet-centered. In fact, I believe that raising collective consciousness is a key strategy that can address far more dangers than just GMOs.

I’m excited to make my contribution to this upliftment of humanity. Its effectiveness depends on how many people learn the techniques and pass them on.

Which is why I would love it if you join me.

I’m looking for people interested in developing the highest version of themselves, to come together as a high-vibe community where we can share and practice these new tools and techniques together.

Your investment that will keep us going is just $10 per month, but I hope to make the value so far beyond that, it will be a no-brainer for you to encourage your friends and family to also join.

Community Bonus: Interviews with 40+ Great Thought Leaders

Community members will also have access to the incredible treasure of interviews that I conducted for the 40-day and 40-night summit I hosted during the pandemic called, A Magnificent New Normal.

Guest luminaries include Bruce Lipton, Lynne Twist, Jewel Kilcher, Alison Armstrong, Lynne McTaggart, Alberto Villoldo, Zach Bush, Sue Morter, David and Austin Perlmutter, Ilarion Merculieff, Eben Alexander, Tom O’Bryan, Katherine Woodward Thomas, Terry Patten, Eric Edmeades, Matthew Fox, and others. Each person shares magnificent gems of wisdom for living a better life and creating a better planet.

As a community member, you gain instant access to all of the interviews.

Saying YES to Big Changes

Launching this additional direction for my life is a big deal for me. But as I witnessed how easily it was to pass on what I’ve learned to others, and how profoundly people have benefitted, it was an easy choice.

Seeing what is going on in the world and knowing how the quantum aspect of consciousness can catapult us forward, starting this community and book became a natural YES for my bigger mission.

I hope you will join me in this new journey, and together explore ways to raise the consciousness of our planet.

Thank you, and

Be Magic!
