    #21 #22 Thanks for adding a couple crucial points, @Praveen Raj Gullepalli. Any honest human being who can be vulnerable to their own complete awareness knows that they have experienced at least one thing in their life for which they have no rational explanation. The absolute truth of being in love, for example.

    It is puerile and divisive for a member of this community to invoke their ambassadorship while they ridicule something that makes them uncomfortable.

    #14 Skepticism is a truly beneficial approach in our human toolkit, @Lisa Gallagher. Having the ability to discern the rightness, truth, or slight possibility of a new idea or experience is crucial to our survival. But being skeptical does not mean waging a disinformation campaign against everything we don't understand.

    And part of the true worth of the internet is that we can learn about ideas, ways of life, and experiences that were out of our reach when we couldn't meet people from around the globe.

    The ironic thing is, healthcare is a good example of where we believe in things 100% but the actual underlying statistics show a much less clear reality. For example, "Medical errors rank behind heart disease and cancer as the third leading cause of death in the U.S., Johns Hopkins researchers say." http://www.bmj.com/content/353/bmj.i2139

    If people were more likely to employ skepticism that number might not be quite so high.

    But real skepticism entails listening fully to the opposing point of view, or the risks of the medical treatment, and then making an informed decision.

    #13 You pretty much honed in on exactly why I wanted to talk to @Max J. Carter and then share a bit about what I learned and experienced"

    "It's inconvenient and takes courage, but a necessary requirement" to sometimes "rock us out of our subjective, judgmental comfort zones"

    You are much more aware than most. @Ian Weinberg, that we are primarily a bunch of 5-year-olds when it comes to beliefs. We downloaded what was said in our immediate environment a decade before our analytical mind started to develop. And because we got those beliefs from people we loved and trusted implicitly, it feels a little shameful and invokes a lot of fear when we are confronted with a word like shaman that simply never came up in our conventional, middle-class, pre-internet worlds.

    But as an adult, a little more knowledge is never something to fear. We are now in full control of accepting or rejecting parts or the whole of something that, once we understand it, does or does not mesh with what we think, believe and experience.

    #12 Thanks for adding that point, @Ken Boddie because many of us North Americans forget that we are rather late to the party on some things and that there are some long traditions in the East that must be respected as they were helping people centuries before the printing press, let alone the peer-reviewed double-blind trial.

    One thing that has been validated extensively by pharma dollars is the placebo effect. When it comes to healing, and most certainly to simple life changes, deciding that the pill will work or that the conversation was beneficial can be a major factor in allowing us to let go of worry, because we have taken action. That shift from constant worry, to trusting the pill, the needle, or the healing professional does release us from being in a sympathetic state where our body is constantly alert and not dedicating resources to repair. Chronic anxiety and fear is one of the reasons that modern life is full of chronic disease. We don't give our body the calm, easeful state it needs to take care of growth and healing.

    #16 There are a lot of physical talkers in the world and it helps in moving energy while speaking as much as it enhances communication and @Deb Helfrich moves a lot of energy when she speaks that assists her in maintaining her focus and finding the abstract pieces for linear communication.

    This is what allows her to be so insight filled.

    Allowing the abstract field to give her what she needs to find the individual expression that often produces wise insights as we have all witnessed many times.
    Deb Helfrich
    05/12/2016 #16 Deb Helfrich
    #10 Another light-bulb moment, @Deb Lange. Because I find it to be true that every sense we add as part of a conversation makes us feel we are understood at a deeper level. Typing back and forth in posts and comments can create real relationships. But then get on the phone, and the experience is richer. Have a video call and even more sensory information is conveyed back and forth. Sitting across a meal creates a very rich connection.

    "Transformation is visceral." Analytical lists, rigid belief in what is measurable, keeps us in our language-based ego when what we need is to feel. As individuals we have to relearn how to trust what our body feels.

    As @Max J. Carter can testify, I like to move quite a lot when I talk. I even do it when typing comments. I can often catch myself making a movement that either reinforces my point or adds a further level of meaning to what I am saying.

    I am sincerely looking forward to your videos, as your book has been a source of great companionship. I feel quite young at heart in the way I enjoy sometimes just looking at the pictures, other times going back to a section that draws me to re-read it.

    @ Deb Helfrich .Thanks for your insightful post.I wish any shaman or sheikh (in may religion) can use his special power to cure many of the business diseases that we can't discover by the scientific methods of market research or give us an accurate interpretation why 85% of our young start ups die at the second year of their birth.I hope they can tell why people resist our innovations although they are acceptable and desirable or they can use their good spirits to change the current outdated selection criteria of HR to give young people more hope of getting fair job opportunity.Some people may also resist what I am saying stressing that life is not at all about business only.I fully agree,everybody can be a shaman or sheikh for herself because she receives the same light from the same source.Everyone has her own light that can help see life pitfalls or bumpy roads. Everyone has her own light enough for her own journey .Don't look for the light in the side of darkness ,and when you feel that your light is dim recharge your batteries or keep plugged.As we suffer from myths that may kill our businesses,one of our myths in life is to resort to shamans or sheikhs who can use ,as they claim,magic to discover the the cause of illness and bad luck.The real comfort and good feeling are achieved when we resort to the main and the only source of light to provide us with enough light for our long paths.

    Interesting read @Deb Helfrich. I always wondered why @Max J. Carter had the title Shaman, this helps me to understand. I'm not opposed to a holistic approach but there will always be the skeptic in me because of my healthcare background. My comment about being a skeptic is not in relation to what Max does personally, it's a general comment. I'm glad you've had a great outcome with your sessions along with a few revelations! Thanks for enlightening us!

    We need the Max Carters of the world to rock us out of our subjective, judgmental comfort zones and confront truth (a relative term) and a greater authenticity. It's inconvenient and takes courage, but a necessary requirement for positive evolution of the individual and the greater collective.

    @Deb Helfrich - how awesome that you trusted what you were sensing and had a session with @Max Carter - it is a very different way of working being with someone and being present to the energy in the container and within each person. Every talks ABOUT Transformation, few actually experience it or co-create it for themselves and for others. Transformation is visceral. Something that is felt, it changes our perception and way we experience our world, it changes something inside ourselves. I believe this is the shift we need. With all the information in the world, being passed around, it does not necessarily result in change. I have been musing about posting via the video app, in this way at least experience can energy across the internet and connect, or not just through words but through energy, tone, movement, gesture, imagery etc. I encourage people to experience the world "through" our body. It is a very different experience to thinking about the world. It includes an integration of thinking, sensing, feeling, noticing, moving, breathing as an organic being.

    #8 'love and acceptance of living things the way they are, rather than the way we think they should be' So much said there, @Cyndi wilkins. We have these big brains, with complex reasoning skills, and we can really hurt ourselves and the people we try to love with our schemes and dreams and "clinging to our desires."

    I won't lie, it hurts to let go. And it certainly isn't a one time thing, I built some really strong neural pathways around a few dimensions of my life. But I am feeling some ease return to relatively mindless tasks and those faltering first steps into a new knowing.

    And, in essence, while Stella wanted her groove, Deb wanted her knowing back.
    Cyndi wilkins
    05/12/2016 #8 Cyndi wilkins
    Learning to actually let go of everything is a lesson in the purest form of love and acceptance of living things the way they are, rather than the way we think they should be. It's going with the flow, rather than clinging to our desires...It is life's way of teaching us humility and grace...And trusting that mother nature always has our best interests at heart...even when we resist her, she loves us anyway...A heart that loves is always torn...and we all need love...especially for oneself. I am finally getting there, and sounds like you have arrived too Deb Helfrich...What a long, strange trip it's been;-)

    #6 I appreciate the comment and shares, @Franci Eugenia Hoffman. I believe that if we don't learn something new from everyone we interact with, then we are not asking the right questions.

    While Max can come across as abrasive in writing, he is quite a good listener, who truly intends to be helpful to the people he works with. He met me at where I was in regards to being outside of mainstream religion and only a moderate fan of rock and I am certain he would work with everyone at the place where they found themselves.

    Being very militant when it comes to conveying information doesn't necessarily mean that someone communicates like that in a conversation, and because I could see the person behind some of his stronger positions, I listened to my curiosity and was glad I reached out to have a session with him.
