Regina and Freddy touched on the power of pyramids at home and balancing the energy...Does anyone know where one can purchase pyramids and other balancing tools for the home?

Does anyone know where I can find more information on the '60's Russian research on geometric rooms and their effects on healing patients? I have a particular interest in the trapezoidal room used for healing schizophrenia... I have some close friends that could potentially be helped by this. Thanks!

Thank you both. Now off to the stone circles.

I found out many years ago about the shape of buildings through Black Elk, who said square concrete buildings disempower people where as round buildings, such as tepi's, empowered people.
I would love to go on one of his tours in Avery. I found his knowledge and grace in sharing his experiences, fascinating.
Another brilliant interview, I love what you do.

I think it's fascinating the sacred geometry, harmonic resonance and geographical placement of these sacred sites, along with the many rituals and myths built around the initiation process. Mr Silva certainly is very a knowledgeable scholar about this topic. However... I think the recommendation to drink weak beer and eat meat to ground after an out of body experience falls a bit short. We have our lower three chakras (the lower triangle) all of these resonate with our physical being and presence in our body. Each chakra has positive and negative aspects... beer and meat may not necessarily bring us back in a harmonic alignment with the positive attributes of these chakras and our connection with our light body. Because ultimately we are hue man and must strive to live in harmony with our physical presence while maintaining our rainbow body.

There are many pranayama (breathing) and visualization exercises that can be done to assist in grounding. Also physically connecting with the earth (earthing) Eating root vegetables which are actually the corresponding colors for the lower chakras, beets, carrots, turnips, potato, yams and drinking water. Our physical bodies are mostly water in about a similar proportion to that of the earth's ratio of water to land. Water contains the minerals and nutrients which will assist us to resonate with our lovely earth and help reestablish our presence here on a cellular level. Just my opinion, other wise very interesting show.

Well, what you say is true, however, bear in mind that we are all different, and each individual works with the tools that suit them best. As it happens, eating meat and drinking wheat beer (not weak beer, perish the thought) is what works for me, and there's nothing wrong with that. I'm 55 and haven't been to a doctor in 32 years, so obviously something in my regimen works very well.

Loved what Freddy has to say about sacred sites and their influence on our lives. Wetted my appetite to hear more of him, yet alas, while his Open Minds interviews are available, Gaia has not made Templemaking and his other documentaries available to the international viewing audience. I am paying for full subscription, but not receiving full service. I have been an avid viewer of many Gaia programs for years, however, there have been many other movies and documentaries that I have not been able to access (in Australia) which has been very disappointing. Please Gaia, it would be most appreciated if you could deliver the full service that I am paying for and other international viewers.

I have no idea why there is a block on some of my documentries outside north America. I'm working with GAIA to fix the issue. Maybe just an oversight.

I'm going on line right now to research how to create sacred temples in the home. Great stuff!

I've heard that all we need to do is intention the space for it to work...

Fantastic interview! I've enjoyed all of Freddy Silva's interviews on Open Minds and this one reminded me that I need to watch his video on temple making here on Gaia. Can't wait for his return in 6 months or so. I would love to hear more about the portals with the sun that open every 8 minutes. What are they for? Did our ancestors use them in some way and how did the knowledge of them affect their culture or way of living? Thanks so much for another great show!

Great to watch you again here on Gaia.
What a great trip to the Yucatan! in Dec '15.
You and Miguel Angel were a fantastic pair of guides for our journey.
I hope to join another tour soon.
I had the time of my life. Be safe.

Thank you, that was very interesting. Freddy is one of my favorite guests!

I loved the part about the energy within buildings. This is something I have always been sensitive to but was trained by society to forget about it. When I was about 5 years old, I recall passing a particular semi-commercial building made of wood but it was a combination of a house and a business. I just hated this building and I would analyze it every time we drove by and wonder what it was that I hated about this building. The nature of my work moves me to new offices about every two years so by chance about 5 years ago I worked in this building and I had the worst co-worker and upper management experience in my life. I know now why I didn't like that building 40 years ago. So now I just love to allow the feelings I get in different buildings and spaces speak to me and warn me. I am a true believer it is real. Excellent information contained in this interview. I just love Freddy. I'm so glad you have him come back again and again. Thanks Regina!, posted on June 9, 2016

I have watched every one of these episodes, and Freddy Silva is always one of my favorite guests she has! The dialogue between them flows so easily and he is so knowledgeable about so many things! Its not even 9:30 this morning and I already texted 4 people telling them to watch this one! Please have him back!
