Biophotons

Biophotons

Can you see the original photograph? It is a picture I captured of flowers, plants and leaves. They are beautiful and incredibly gorgeously – alive in nature. I have created an effect so that if it is the life force oozing from the edges of the plants and flowers. 

Everything emanates with a light that is inherent in all beings and living things. In 1923, Alexander Gurwitsch, a Russian scientist, discovered what would be researched further by his daughter, Anna, and would come to be known as biophotons. 

The biophotons are created by all living organisms. According to the NewburyPortNews.com website, “The interesting thing about light is that in addition to behaving like a wave of energy, it can also behave like a physical particle, a kind of chunk of light, a quantum. It’s this basic unit of light that we call a photon. 

Biophotons are photons, bits of light, that are generated spontaneously by most living cells. Research suggests that biophotons are created in the DNA that resides in the mitochondria in your cells. They are created in the 98% of each DNA molecule that is not used for genetic coding of behavior. The genome project referred to this as junk-DNA because they had no idea about its use.”

Cute Dolphin

Cute Dolphin

I was thinking of how much I like to travel to new places around the world. It doesn’t look like we will be able to do so this year due to the corona virus pandemic. 

This is a photograph I took of a cute Bottlenose dolphin in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. It is adorable. She looks like she is smiling and enjoying life. 

According to Wikipedia, “Bottlenose dolphins, the genus Tursiops, are the most common members of the family Delphinidae, the family of oceanic dolphin. Molecular studies show the genus contains three species: the common bottlenose dolphin, the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin, and the Burrunan dolphin.”

Winter’s Coming

I know we have some time left but based on the colder temperatures and more precipitation we have had lately, we will be in winter sometime soon. The crops have already been harvested and only stubble remains in the fields.  

The hay bales have been processed and soon there will be a layer of snow on it. There is fun in the winter time to be had though too. It is something you learn to encompass in your life and live with the best you can. Time to prepare.

The Iceman Speaks

The Wim Hof Method: Activate Your Full Human Potential”

Book: “The Wim Hof Method: Activate Your Full Human Potential,” Wim Hof, Sounds True, 2020

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

Book available: October 20, 2020

This is quite an interesting book starting with the point of view of Wim Hof’s life beginning as a forgotten twin in the uterus of his mother. It is extraordinarily special that she knew something was different and that there was another being inside of her still. It is amazing that she spoke and pleaded, “Oh God, let this child live! I will make him a missionary!” He has, in essence, become a missionary in real life.

Wim Hof has turned out to be an incredible person who has set numerous Guinness World Records by defying medical doctors and scientists with his personal feats. He has been able to override his autonomic nervous system and control his body which was thought to be not achievable. He has done amazing things such as run a full marathon in the Namib Dessert without water and then to the other extreme, he ran a half marathon about the Arctic Circle in his bare feet and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in shorts.

Wim Hof has had many other accomplishments despite his personal tragedies. He credits his Wim Hof Method with the ability to do many great things that he says anyone else can be taught to do. They are basically three main concepts and training of Breathing, Cold Exposure and your Mind Set.

This book gives you examples and leads you through the processes with exercises and examples. He has actually taken many people who were not functioning at their personal peak to climb a number of mountains despite their physical conditioning after proper training with the Wim Hof Method.

Personally, I have implemented the cold showers at the end of a warm one. I have also swam or dove into Lake Winnipeg which has turned cold already as it is north of the 91.5 degree parallel latitudinally. In the winter time, it ices over completely although it is huge and was once an ancient inland ocean such that there are winter roads across the ice where not only cars and trucks but semi-trucks cross the ice highway. 

Also, Winnipeg has been colder than Mars on December 31, 2013 when temperatures including windchill factors dipped down to -53 degrees Celsius which is -63.4 Fahrenheit for my American friends. I think living in Winnipeg is a good way to implement Wim Hof’s method of colder temperatures for the body.

I have been doing the breathing method with Wim Hof’s app that I downloaded off of his website and have been improving daily. Finally, I have been working on improving my mind set for over 40 years + as I journey along a spiritual pathway.

I highly recommend this book as it is reflective of a man who is determined to make a difference in the world and teaches us how to do it. 

“The Iceman” will not disappoint you. “We are limited only by the depth of our imagination and the strength of our conviction.” I give this book a 4.25 out of 5 as a rating.

He has a website online that you can access for more information which I highly recommend. You can pre-order the book at major book distributors.

As a side note, I have been practicing many of the things that Wim Hof has been teaching and as a consequence of more time and hindsight, I would like to change my rating from 4.25 to 5 out of 5 as the impact of his breathing technique alone is absolutely incredible. Thank you Wim Hof for all your hard work and self-discoveries.

Forgotten Root Cellar

Forgotten Root Cellar – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

Forgotten Root Cellar

When I was younger, we used to come back from being at the beach along the country roads back to the city. We would stop at the farmers who would sell their produce at their properties. They had all their food in burlap bags and would have them stored in root cellars. 

This is a photograph of an old root cellar because they were built near the ground and went down deep into the soil to keep the vegetables cold and preserved. This picture brings back good memories.

New Life

New Life – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

New Life

This is a photograph I took near Little Deer in Manitoba, Canada. It is showing the contrast between trees that are broken down, separated and decaying. However, it also shows that life anew is happening with regrowth and new life. It is showing the verdant life form. It is like the cycles of life; of death and rebirth. It continues in nature’s pattern and way.

Mandarin Oranges

Mandarin Oranges

This is a still life photograph of a box of Mandarin Oranges. I thought it would be interesting to unravel one orange and photograph the box against a hard wood floor. I like the contrast between what is covered and what is not. It is kind of like life and what we offer to people, that which we let them see on the exterior and what is really on the interior. It is the secret chapter of our life book that we do not let others read. I also added filters which highlighted the orange hues of the fruit and also the floor.

Bee Flower

Mikawoz Bee Flower

Bee Flower

I look this image of the bee in the flowers in Freeport, Bahamas. What I like about this photograph that I took is the fact that the flower is in various stages of development just like people from baby to youngling to adult. I find the spiky nature particularly appearing which I guess would be like the teenage years.

Directional

This is an abstract acrylic painting of directions we take in life. There are routes that criss cross each other but essentially, we are all going in the right direction in on our path through this life. May your journey be fortuitous. I really like this piece and I hope you do too.

Birthday

Mikawoz Birthday

Birthday

This is an abstract drawing I did up in ink. It represents my birthday today. I see a heart in it which represents love. I see lungs which represents the breath of life or chi or prana and energy. I have candles or lights to represent happiness, joy and celebration of life. There is flow and design to the art piece. I usually create to the sound of music playing while I free flow my creative work to the inspirational music.
