"Faith is an island in the setting sun.
proof is the bottom line
I am an energy aficionado and I have a question. Why have we given over our faith energy to the pharmaceutical industry whose ads confound us with their endless side effects and not Spirit and its endless and infinite possibilities? I have never heard feathered into any one of these mainstream media medical ads at the beginning, the middle or the end, that this that or the other drug will actually cure us. On the contrary, taking drugs approved by the FDA in this country comes with a plethora of possible side effects that will only lead us to additional drugs with an even longer laundry list of side effects. If proof is the bottom line for every one the jury is in, the decision is final, just say no to drugs. Perhaps there is another agenda? Well, of course there is, I'm being silly. You know it. I know it. The entire world knows it. So, how can we get around it? Are there any real healing and wellness alternatives out there for our maladies or are we doomed to pharmaceuticals for all eternity? How did we actually arrive at this state of being? Are we all really this ill that we need all of these toxins? Penicillin is less than one hundred years old and just look at how many drugs are on the market today with their corresponding illnesses that probably didn't even exist back then.
Okay that was way too many questions and that all just lends itself to my passion and how taking back our health is of optimum importance. I don't want you to just feel a little better, I want you to feel amazingly better. My goal is to teach as many people as possible that they are making themselves sick in a lot of cases with the substances they consume and absorb, the thoughts they think and project and ultimately the energy that either sustains or depletes them, I work with energy but what does this mean? This means that the subtle energies that exist around us and are emitted from us are scientifically and humanly detectable and if you work towards that ability you not only can detect these energies in yourselves, but you can transmute the negative ones and help to heal them where necessary, through the grace of God, of course. You can do this just as easily as I can and it starts with intention, prayer and meditation and once you begin your practice there is no limit to what you will learn and experience about energy and how much of it you actually are so changing it becomes easy and effortless especially as it pertains to personal wellness and healing.
By now, most of us know that everything in existence is made up of pretty much the same star dust energy as everything else. At the center of even the most dense matter, when you get down to the atomic level nothing is static or stagnant. When you get down to the sub atomic level even those atoms are moving with a pulsating life force energy that is changed only by your observation.
Imagine. You become aware of your thoughts and your frequency, the vibration you are putting out into the universe and you decide to change it and it changes. The potential for world peace lies therein I would think.
That's a rabbit hole of a different depth and I digress, but not really. Getting back to everything and everyone is emitting a frequency that is scientifically detectable. Plants, animals, people, sound, light, scent, inanimate objects all emit a frequency and these frequencies vibrate at different levels. The best way for me to describe the difference and how you may have already been able to feel these frequencies, when you walk into a room that’s open and inviting and filled with flowers or plants and children and loved ones you may notice the energy is very loving and inviting, comfortable and healing. On the other hand, if you walk into an environment where an argument has just taken place or is taking place and you see and hear the argument escalating, you may notice that your heart rate increases along with your blood pressure and you may think this is a natural response for most of us and you’d be right. A person just walking into either of those environments can blindly absorb all the energy around them and carry it around for days. A high vibration can linger just as long as a lower vibration only the lower vibration has an uncanny ability to destroy and cause disease while the higher vibration has an uncanny ability to calm and cause healing. What energy workers try to teach is that firstly there is a detectable vibration and that we are either raising it or lowering it depending on our state of awareness. The second is that you are emitting a vibration and you are responsible for where you point that thing! Don’t be pointing your vibration in my direction unless you know what you’re emitting. We are always emitting and absorbing but the goal and ultimate objective is to become so aware that we emit only unconditional love, one of the highest possible compassionately healing vibrations. We then detect and shield ourselves from the lowest ones transmuting them into the positive and to take this notion to its highest possible fruition, to heal the human body and then for that healed human to heal other humans.

Proof? Yes, yes. There is proof in Spirituality but how do you package an experience? In our Western capitalist culture we are manufacturers of product so where is the Spiritual product that proves that Spirit exists and healing exists? I personally use incense and healing crystals and anointed essential oils and all of them become useless without my intention. However, with my intention and the grace of God all things are possible and I've EXPERIENCED phenomena that Science would argue is not provable but what does Science have to do with God? Well, it has everything to do with God but people tend to get in the way. God reveals Him/Herself to each open heart as the open heart seeks, shows up, listens, taps into, reaches up, prays and meditates. You have to be in attendance and Spirit will touch you and provide you with all the proof you need. It becomes irrefutable. This proof is the kind of energy Healers, Yogi's, Priests, Monks, Sisters and devoted followers have been speaking about for eons.
Everyone emits their own personal frequency. Some people just make you feel better and some just don't. I leave it up to you to decide but try not to judge just try to become more aware. Personally speaking I’ve had my own experiences with energy, which have lead me here today and my purpose is not to convince you but you to teach you that energy is detectable, we all emit frequencies and some of us work really hard to tap into higher levels of consciousness so as to be able to detect and transmute the lower energies. Imagine a room full of negative ions and a very high vibrating positive ion enters into the equation, well that positive ion especially if it has the grace of God and intention to do so, has the potential to transmute all of those negative ions into positive ones. In translation, energy workers have the potential to turn negative energy into positive energy through teaching, anointing, laying on of hands, through prayer, primarily though the driving force in all of it; God, intention and the desire and love to help people heal themselves from stress, heartache, suffering and ultimately illness. There are many like me who walk about spreading the great news that there is real healing in the world. There is also a tremendous need for more healers. Perhaps you're being called to take yourself to the next level in your own spiritual development. I say 'perhaps' but I know you are being called to the next level, we all are. The question becomes will you answer?
Meditation is one way to answer the call. It is a very powerful way to connect to source. Prayer and meditation go hand in hand like inhaling and exhaling. They work in tandem to bring life force energy into the breather. Meditation is a spiritual relaxation technique that helps you to hear closely what the body needs, what the spirit needs, and what the soul needs because it settles you into the core of your true being, your true nature, your true essence. You think you’re just human and let’s be clear, just human is a brilliant, amazing, incredible mind blowing trip. But what’s going on inside of this human and how it connects to everything else that’s alive and everything else that exists is mind blowing on a level that you can only reach through meditation and that is anything but 'just' spiritual.
The sublime ultimate is pure spirituality existing in the consciousness and intention filled, light saturated human being. The human that yields its outward fading shine and inward miraculous mechanics to an infinite and omniscient spark presence is surely a being that time would surely charm, per Axel Rose in November Rain “If you could heal a broken heart, wouldn't time be out to charm you”?
Meditation takes you into the quiet, peaceful, tranquil, vast space of your heart center. It is the place where silence and stillness exists in the midst of your never still body. Your body is in constant motion, even when you’re sleeping. You are a ‘life force being’ who radiates energy vibrations, just like electricity. Some of us operate at full capacity easily and effortlessly. Some of us are barely operating. Some of us are somewhere in between. Some of us are sick and some of us on this planet are so out of touch. So how can we get to the place of beginnings?
Meditation is a vacation within that teaches us over time where our center is, what balance feels like and where our jumping off and landing back point is, our place of beginnings.
What do I mean by that?
Life has a way of pushing us around, literally and figuratively. Sometimes we overextend ourselves, we stop taking care of ourselves and allow ourselves to get away from optimum health, we over eat, or over drink or over work too much, we lose sleep, we get into arguments, we get disappointed, we get stressed out, frustrated, we act out and we can eventually get sick from all of this pushing.
Unfortunately, the humans I've experienced around the Northern New Jersey area in particular are quite interested in pushing. They push on the highway, in the hallway, in the grocery store, at the mall. You do not want a confrontation but if the majority of the people are walking around with dense energies, you are susceptible to that energy. You can absorb that density and take on its traits and become short tempered, get really stressed out and start to push back. We’re watching all over the world people being pushed by low vibrating humans and then other low vibrating humans are pushing back, harder and more often.
Meditation is the opposite of pushing. Meditation is the acceptance, release, detachment and freedom from every day stresses that once you begin to practice, seem to, over time, have less meaning. Your frequency gets higher. The denser energies of sadness, disappointment, anger, and stress, etc. resonate less. When we operate from a low capacity these denser energies resonate strongly since we are closer to that vibration but optimally our goal is to raise our vibration, increase our capacity to accept and release thereby creating freedom which I can associate with the feeling of a really amazing vacation where you breathe deeply without a care in the world. The secret is that the ‘vacation’ lies within perception.
Sounds easy right? Well it is. Meditation is the easiest thing in the world to do. You do not need any equipment (although Young Living Essential Oils definitely help), you do not need any special clothing. All you need is the desire to reach a state of being that is peaceful, joyful, expansive, healing, Holy, and delightful.
Eat, drink, use the restroom, shut off all electronic equipment and be prepared to sit comfortably, uninterrupted for at least 5 minutes the first time. Notice I did not say there should be silence in the world. There is no such thing. As I am typing I can hear the orchestra of crickets outside my window. There will ALWAYS be distractions. These will be effortlessly and easily overcome with practice. Do not concern yourself with noise. Just go within.
Sit or lie down or hang from a tree if that makes you comfortable, the key is to come to meditation with no physical desires EXCEPT stillness, peacefulness and grounding. I use Highest Potential or Peace and Calming Essential Oil and inhale it deeply to further prepare myself for this quiet time.
After you've read all the way through, begin by closing your eyes. Take a few deep breaths, inhaling deeply and holding it in at the top of the breath for a moment or two, and then releasing slowly and fully. Repeat this two, or three times to bring your focus to your breath and away from the many thoughts of the mind.
At this point the mind may resist and ask you to do a million things, and it may even chastise you for not ‘doing’ something, but trust your highest self.
“You are a human being not a human doing”.
as Deepak Chopra said, and meditation is indeed ‘something’.
Relax into your breathing, and begin to WATCH as your many endless, contrary, opinionated, passion filled thoughts come to your mind to distract you, to tell you of their urgency. Relax and just let them float by, returning to your deep inhale, holding it at the top for a moment or two, and then releasing slowly.
Every time you find yourself ‘thinking’, bring your focus back to your breath and away from the mind. The goal is to create space in between your thoughts. The goal is to quiet the mind and connect you to your warm and loving heart center so that you can connect with your highest self, your life force energy, your Chi, Ki or Qi. With practice, you can learn to connect, tap into, turn onto, lean into, and radiate from your heart center all the peace necessary to navigate this world which is by far the most powerful way to go.
There is more positive energy emanating from a meditative heart than anger from a bitter one. Bliss, joy, love and peace are derived, cultivated, shared, taught and learned from this energy center. They are the highest vibrating emotions and intentions one can have. Meditation helps us to release anything that holds us back from these and unconditionally loving ourselves first and then one another.
Now, with a deep inhalation bring your attention from the breath in your chest to your heart center where all the love in the world is stored. Place your hand on your heart with the intention to love, honor, embrace and comfort yourself for all that you do, have done or will do as a spirit being having a human experience. If you know you've done the best you can do, love yourself. If you know you can do better, love yourself. If you know you've not done enough, love yourself. Try and create a deep love for yourself and if possible, love deeper. Connect your deep breathing with the slow, steady, rhythmic beat of your heart. This is the source and pulse of energy and frequency that you are emitting. Others coming into your presence can feel this emission before they speak with you. Emit the highest possible frequency and just like sound waves bounce and return, the highest possible frequency will emit back.
Inhale deeply. Think calm. Hold for a moment or two, exhale deeply and smile. Congratulations. You have just taken your first meditation trip to the place of beginnings. This place is your source of all calm, peace, bliss and joy, even in the midst of hardships and trials. This center place is the place you want to become intimately familiar with. The more you visit the calmer and more peaceful your state of being will become and the more your ability to cope with adversity increases. Naturally this will spill over into every cell in your body making them calmer and more peaceful and that increases health and wellness. Meditation is the first step to become aware of and taking control of your state of being and making sure you are on the right track. You can visit this place as often as you like, you just need to close your eyes, take a deep breath and begin your journey within.
