For my needs, basic street photography with a rangefinder, this is a VG filter. No issues and would buy again.

4.0 out of 5 stars VG documentary, May 21, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We saw this on PBS while out of town. We wanted another family member to also see it. This is a solid documentary with alot of information that most people, even science buffs, may not know. Well done.

For the price, this is a very good filter. I don't need to spend top $ for a B&W filter for what I'm doing. This one is fine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works for some, cannot tel, May 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These magical diet pills, not matter what's in them, seem to work for some people and not others. Is it placebo effect? Or part of overall changes in lifestyle and eating habits? For me, there is virtually no effect here even with watching calories and running 3 miles most days.


Advanced 13th Octave LaHoChi

1.0 out of 5 stars Solomon's Seal? 24 pages?, May 17, 2014
If you know anything about Reiki or LaHoChi you will know that advanced 13th Octave LaHoChi is a marketing co-opt of the existing LaHoChi system.

This is all based on the supposed channelings of 'St Germain' and 'Lao Tzu'.

You can read more in my review on 13th Octave LaHoChi: A Guide to Hands-on Techniques from a Master Healer.

1.0 out of 5 stars Face Palm, May 17, 2014
Ok, first we had our human energy potential. Next we realize this through Reiki by the early 1900's (if not much earlier). In 1991, we have LaHoChi, and now, the new coke, the super-dee duper-dee nuclear carbonated LaHoChi 13th Octave (brought to you by the ascended masters dynamic duo St Germain & Lao Tzu).

Remember, this LHC-13 is '100' (to '1000' in the authors videos) times more powerful than Reiki. LHC-13 is like a 'nuclear' blast, something we should all want to experience. LHC-13 is the '4th level' taught after all 3 Reiki levels by atlantareiki.com. But it must not have been powerful enough as the domain name for atlantareiki.com is currently for sale.

I know of the people who brought forth LaHoChi (Satchamar, Dan Watson, etc).. They are not even mentioned in this book. At least in standard Reiki training you get to hear about Dr Usui, Dr Hayashi, Mrs Takata, the human beings involved in the lineage. But LHC-13 comes direct from 'St. Germain' and Lao Tzu through their exclusive channel and marketing arrangement. LHC-13 is an end-run around an established LHC system. If the LaHoChi founders had thought that someone would later try and co-op their work (a common new age tactic) they would have trademarked it and this book would not even exist. (There is someone now touting a 24th octave LHC (LOL) so even this co-opted concept has has been co-co-opted by no less than 'LamaCristumDEUS Intergalactic Elder of God'.) The attunement method in LHC-13 is called UFOG. If you are paying attention you have all the clues you need.

In a seance voice... "I am Lao Tzu. Long ago in what you think of as China, I gave my students and family the chi, so that the poorest peasant, the farmer, and the beggar could heal themselves." - I have to tell you this is incomplete/improper thinking showing little knowledge of the real Chinese understanding of energy. True energy masters teach that you are not giving away your own energy. You are a conduit. You cannot give someone 'the chi'. In proper healing you do not, or should not, give away your own chi. (In Reiki this is a clear no-no and is not Reiki.) If you do give away your own chi, through not understanding the process and attempting to force an outcome, you will feel depleted after a healing session.

If you understand the basics of Taoism you know about the energy forms of Jing (from your parents), Qi (from food, water, air, exercise, etc), and Shen (the cultivated/transformed forms of Qi to spiritual levels). You must cultivate your own chi. When you are engaged in energy work you are not using 'chi', that would be your own energy. You are using the universal energy that flows through you. So this book does not adequately understand or convey the types of energy involved in the human being system and the relationship between the human and the larger universal energy.

Folks, St. Germaine is not the creative director and Lao Tzu is not head of marketing for anything. At a measly 60 pages, you have nothing much here except an expanded sales brochure for yet another healing modality, which co-ops an existing system. Calling it a new name is just trying to drive a marketing wedge for new sales.

If you want to learn energy healing, you cannot do it from a book. You really do need a human transmission. Direct human contact is how Dr Usui taught in Reiki. Go find a reputable Reiki Master who will either give you level 1 for free or for less than $100. Dr Usui often gave training and healing away for free (or nearly so) depending on the situation of the individual. Dr Usui was not dependant on marketing. Students find their spiritual teacher because of the integrity and magnetism of the teacher drawing the students to them.

2.0 out of 5 stars You can do better, May 16, 2014
"When Albert Einstein began talking to me about dimensions in 2004". That should be all that you need to hear to know whether this book is good for you.

We have passed beyond the 2012 hype and the myriad of channelers seem to be receeding into the background and we should all say thank you. Channeling does little to help anyone. The time for looking to outside authorities, in bodies or NOT, is so OVER. The New Age also like to say they have discovered new things that no one else knows about like 13th level healing and so on. 1000 times more powerful than anything else that exists. It's like the new coke really. If the existing market is saturated, you try and create something new to sell.

If the mind or soul is not comfortable with being in the BODY then it will bend outward into the realm of energy and the imagination to over-compensate. By focusing on external possible futures and external voices WITHOUT grounding in the body, a discarnate fantasy world forms. Any transmission from the higher dimensions MUST also provide instruction on how to ground and root the vision in the BODY as part of a wholistic experience. The native ceremonies know how to do this. Channeled material does not. It can be interesting to read from time to time. But to have it as a long running focus on it will tend to bend the soul in ways that are not healthy. True Yogic systems know how to integrate and ground the higher energies into the body.

If you are new to the new age / alternative thought, you would be better to start with more solid thinking like Deepak Chopra. If want to learn how to tune into the truth for *yourself* and want hints look from someone with a deep experience then find someone with a background in meditation, breathwork, yoga and/or energy healing. Youtube videos by Gangaji would yield alot of solid help. Do you own work to listen to your own voice. Try meditation, yoga, Reiki. You will get MUCH more out of life by receiving your own impressions and visions rather than listening to the tales of others.

5.0 out of 5 stars His Masterpiece, May 15, 2014
This review is from: Kojiki (Audio CD)
Kitaro entered into the early part of the synthesizer new age movement and made it his own. In Kojiki Kitaro shows his mastery as composer and performer. Here you got classic Kitaro synth voices set to very tight and fluid orchestration. It a synthesis that has seldom been matched even by him.

I saw him perform this live in Ann Arbor Michigan soon after the release. It was one of the tighest best live performances I ever watched. The audience was stunned after the last song that the concert was over and the house lights came up. We expected more. But it was still great.

This is the best Kitaro has ever done and he never really surpassed in anything since. It stands as a 'must have' in every new age collection.


Reiki And The Seven Chakras: Your Essential Guide to the First Level
Reiki And The Seven Chakras: Your Essential Guide to the First Level
Price: $9.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Original Reiki teachings do NOT include Chakras, May 11, 2014
I'm a Reiki Master and have an open mind about a wide variety of supplmental teachings. However, when it comes to teaching or transmitting Reiki, let's be very clear about what Dr Usui taught as 'Reiki' versus any mythology about him or things added by others, especially after Mrs Takata.

Dr Usui never taught about chakras. This was introduced after Reiki came to the US via Mrs Takata. Charkas are a Hindu and Yoga concept. You do NOT need to know ANYTHING about chakras to be an effective Reiki practitioner.

If you are interested in Chakras then start with a deeper source like Wheels of Light: Chakras, Auras, and the Healing Energy of the Body.

If you are interested in Reiki there are much better books out there like Essential Reiki: A Complete Guide to an Ancient Healing Art.

3.0 out of 5 stars Use care when ordering, May 8, 2014
Be careful when ordering this product. There are some issues with ISBN numbers of these yoga products from this company.

These ISBNs have been mis-printed/mis-matched on some products from this company (you can compare to B&N for their listings)
- 9781743080092 - Paperback book
- 9781743087350 - DVD and 64page mini paperback book
- 9781743087411 - DVD and 'hardcover' book

Some of the DVD and 64page mini book (9781743087350) have been shipped out having the ISBN sticker of these other products (9781743087411). I know because this happened to me. As soon are you order comes in make sure you get what you ordered.

This is good intro material. The larger book in the same series (9781743080092) is MUCH better than the small book that comes with this one. You can get the larger book at a great discount at Barnes.
