Power Of The Psychic Vortex!

September 12, 2006


What if there were a way to amplify every prayer we pray to an unlimited degree? What if we were able to focus and combine the power of our prayers with those of others? It would be like a snowball rolling down a hill…gaining mass and momentum…but instead of destroying everything in its path it would form a protective shield around everything it touches!

It may sound like science fiction, but it’s spiritual fact. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but this kind of power, with the help of God, can be harnessed.

I recently discovered the “Psychic Vortex “ by accident, during a meditation using deep relaxation techniques I was taught thirty years ago. I complained to my friend Patti Dahlstrom, who also learned this method from Dr. Henry Mundt, that after practicing it for so long, it had become un-interesting. She suggested that I alter the way I was taught to reach my deepest point of meditation. Instead of walking “down” a flight of stairs, I walk “up” or I go “sideways.” In the process I found a new tool.

One night, as I was flying through a dense fog over Houston, I started to pray and built a “Psychic Vortex” to protect our plane and all of its passengers. Suddenly, the plane drops a few hundred feet, narrowly avoiding a mid – air collision with another aircraft! A coincidence? I think not.

A few months later, while I was meditating in my Hollywood neighborhood, a series of earthquakes came disturbingly close, but bypassed my apartment complex. Further proof to me of the power I had discovered.

Today, as our troops enter the most dangerous aspects of the war in Iraq, we can help them, all U.S. citizens and all of our allies, by creating “Psychic Vortexes “ of protection. We can visualize our family and friends, pets, communities, even entire countries, and in Jesus name ask for healing, protection, and guidance.

I’ve written out, as simply as I can, the way to create and use this incredible gift that God has given us.

First…in a quiet, semi-darkened room with your eyes closed, lie down on your back on a bed or a couch or sit up in a straight chair with your feet flat on the floor, palms upward.

1. [Inhale] hold your breath for a count of Two………1…………….2………….[exhale]

[Inhale] hold your breath for a count of Two………1…………….2………….[exhale]

[Inhale] this time hold your breath for a count of Five

[Exhale] then repeat the sequence called “Two–Two–Five” again

[Inhale] 1…2 [Exhale]… [Inhale] 1…2 [Exhale]…
[Inhale] 1…2…3…4…5 [Exhale]

Ask God to protect you from negative forces as you start your journey.

2. See a flight of stairs. Starting at the number 100, count backwards slowly to the number 1, visualizing each number as you descend.

3. When you reach the bottom, ask in Jesus name to build a “Psychic Vortex. “ Then climb up an imaginary ramp at a 90-degree angle 90 steps, until you reach the top. Then come down the imaginary ramp on the other side at a
90-degree angle for 90 steps, until you reach the bottom.

4. Then say,” Positive thinking brings results I desire. Positive thinking brings results I desire. I trust in God “ over and over until a wave of good feelings sweep over you that lets you know your “Psychic Vortex “ has been received. When you’re at the deepest level, visualize who or what needs your help and ask in Jesus name for the “Psychic Vortex” to help them. ”Positive thinking brings results I desire. Positive thinking brings results I desire. I trust in God”.

5 Then say” Everything is in Divine Order, and I’m part of the Divine plan. Amen.”

6. When you’ve finished, visualize taking an elevator up to the place where you started.

I really don’t know how all of this works, I just thank God that it does!

My new online friend, Sebastian Prooth, in the U.K. has been helping me create a blog, here in the California Desert. Over the past few days he’s asked me questions about “The Other Side”. As I explained how I’m able to channel spirits, he asked me if I was able could channel anyone. He wanted to communicate with a prominent star trek writer who passed away last year, Michael Piller, who he didn’t know. Almost as soon as he had asked the question, I felt my body was being taken over, and I felt like the spirit of Michael was pulsing through me.

Needless to say, Sebastian, was startled, when I spoke to him with what he recognized immediately as similar inflections of Michael. I had never heard him myself. After, Sebastian, calmed down, I asked him to read a story on my website about an event that happened over thirty years ago.

One of my closest friends singer and songwriter, Patti Dahlstrom, [“Emotion” [Dahlstrom/ Sanson], introduced me to one of her closest friends, Jim Croce [ “Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown”, “I Got A Name”]. We saw we had a lot in common. Patti went to his concerts, TV shows and sometimes we just sat around talking or playing guitar. Although I was more of a publisher at the time, working for Warner Bros. Music, I knew I was in the presence of an extraordinary human being and could learn a great from him about songwriting and life.

The night Jim Croce plane crashed, Patti, and I had already started a song that eventually became a tribute to him “Sending my Good Thoughts to You”. Since his passing, whenever I’ve been stuck on a lyric or need a little help with one of life’s little problems, Jim, appears to me and gives me an answer, usually saturated with his “wry” sense of humor.

Up until recently I’ve been reluctant to discuss my experiences in the paranormal, I now realize it’s important to share whatever important information we have. I’m not a Psychic, a Mystic or a Medium but for the last thirty years, I’ve communicated with those who’ve passed over to the other side and they’ve communicated with me.

My grandmother, who helped raise me, has guided me for years whenever I need moral or spiritual support. Jim Croce helps me out when I get stuck on a lyric. Van McCoy works on an arrangement with me. Dr. Floyd Taylor still works on my back everyday. Dr. Henry Mundt, the man who taught me hypnosis reminds me not to stress out. Finally Jimi Hendrix comes back and plays through me whenever I call on him.

I know it sounds pretty far out but I have learned how to access anyone I wish on the other side. Five years ago, the following came to me during a deep meditation, and I wrote it down as soon as I woke up. Until now, I haven’t had the opportunity or the courage to present it publicly. Here it is exactly as I received it:

JULY 31, 1998

Dear Friends,

I’ve been “told” to deliver short messages from the “so called dead” and show anyone who’s interested how to establish a “direct” line of communication with the “other side”….without charge.

The steps are as follows:

1. In a darkened room….relax in a comfortable chair or lie down facing upward with palms to the sky.

2. Do several 2-2-5s

Inhale through the nose [ count 1…..2…..] Exhale through the mouth.

Inhale through the nose [ count 1…..2…..] Exhale through the mouth.

Inhale through the nose [ count 1…..2…..3…..4…..5 ] Exhale through the mouth.

Close your eyes and repeat the 2-2-5 breathing pattern ’til you’re relaxed.


3. Say out loud,” Lord bless this communication”

4. Play a song that you know was specifically written for someone on the other side….[you may use “Sending My Good Thoughts To You” [ Dahlstrom/ Wayne]…..   now visualize whom you wish to contact.

5. When there’s a tear in your eye you know your journey has begun…………there is no need to be afraid ………….communicate with each other without words.

6. When the music ends….write down what you have experienced…..without wiping the tears off of your face.

7. Lean back or lay back and say ,” Thank You Lord “…….to yourself.

8. Open your eyes and resume your regular activities.


Regards, Artie Wayne

This afternoon my new Pod Blogger pal Sebastian Prooth, in Leeds, England was walking me through several installations on my new PC, here in Desert Hot Springs, California. I started to feel weak, so I excused myself and went to have a sandwich. While I rushed through lunch, my chest tightened and my left arm suddenly felt like there were thousands of volts of electricity running through it! From all of the symptoms I was experiencing, I assumed I was having a heart attack!

I said a prayer and started to use a method I learned 30 years ago from Dr. Henry Mundt, an expert in deep relaxation techniques, who taught me ways to instantly relieve stress. It’s called a 2-2-5, a simple breathing excercise that calms anxiety. A method so effective that I’m able to slow down my heart and decrease my blood pressure in just a few minutes. It wasn’t long before all of the symptoms subsided…but I was severely shaken by the experience.

A few minutes later, after a few more 2-2-5s and I got back onto Skype and called Sebastian. He told me to call a doctor right away ’cause it sounded like I was having a stroke…the kind that claimed his grandfather a few months ago! I told him that I used a few 2-2-5s to calm me down, the same exercise I showed him that made his voice deeper and more resonant when he recorded podcasts. I was ready to continue letting him show me how to use new programs he just installed, but he asked instead to do a few 2-2-5s along with me. He said that he had been stressed out all day and could stand a little deep relaxation himself.

As we went through the breathing excercise, we heard our voices deepen as we both started to relax. When he asked me to show him the steps I take to enter into deep meditation, I was tired but happy to share the routine I’d been using every morning for the past 30 years.

1. Inhale through the nose [ count 1…..2…..] Exhale through the mouth.

2. Inhale through the nose [ count 1…..2…..] Exhale through the mouth.

3. Inhale through the nose [ count 1…..2…..3…..4…..5 ] Exhale through the mouth.

Close your eyes and repeat the 2-2-5 breathing pattern ’til you’re relaxed.

Then with your feet flat on the floor, with your hands on your knees or in your lap, visualise yourself walking down a long flight of stairs. Count backwards from 100 as you descend. 100…99…98…at a leisurely pace…relaxing a bit more with every step until you finally reach the bottom.

Take a moment to enjoy the feeling…like you’re floating with no cares in the world. then repeat, “Positive thinking brings results I desire, Positive thinking brings results I desire”. Say this with conviction 10 more times…then take a another deep breath.

Finally visualize an elevator door opening in front of you…you get on and press the button marked 10…watch the elevator ascend from level 1 up to 10 to your regular level of consciousness…then continue your normal activities.

I guess it was the equivelant of rebooting a computer. I felt more energized than I had in years and realized that if Sebastian hadn’t asked me to show him my deeper meditation technique when he did, I might not be here writing this piece.

I want to thank him for what he did and when he installs my sound recorder tomorrow, the first thing I’m going to do is record the relaxation technique and make it available to anyone who e-mails me for a copy.
