KUNDALINI ACTIVATION – OR – WHAT IS HAPPENING TO MY BODY?!?

Article Shared with Permission from the Galactic Free Press, Article written by Will.  Also check them out on facebook here!

chakra-chartWe see this fairly often, a person goes through an intense spiritual or transcendent experience, and afterwards they begin having some very strange things happen to them. They may start having sensations of intense heat or energy flowing through their body. They may start hearing tones, often very high-pitched. Their body may begin to feel like it’s vibrating, or they may feel pressure in their forehead. It’s common for people to believe they’re going insane or even dying when this stuff starts to happen, but don’t worry, all this is actually quite normal for a being who has chosen to raise their Consciousness, and it’s called Kundalini activation.

Now the term Kundalini itself is tied up with the various Hindu religions and also a number of Western mystery schools. As such, there’s a lot of conflicting beliefs about Kundalini and a lot of people who will tell you the “right” and “wrong” ways of going about it. I’m going to steer clear of all that stuff as much as possible, and simply share what I can confirm from my own experiences.

face multicoloredThe first thing to understand is how the chakras work. There are seven main chakras that are aligned with your spine. One at the very base of your spine (root chakra), one a little below your belly button (sacral chakra), one a little above your belly button (solar plexus chakra), one in the center of your chest (heart chakra), one in your throat (throat chakra), one in your forehead (ajna chakra or 3rd eye), and one at the very top of your head (crown chakra). Each chakra corresponds to something different, for example the throat chakra has to do with communication, among other things. There’s a number of websites that do an excellent job explaining which chakra corresponds to what so I wont bother going into detail here (here’s one such website:http://www.poeticmind.co.uk/wellbeing/chakras-and-dantien/ ).

In addition to the seven main chakras, there’s hundreds, if not thousands more chakras all over your body. The main chakras are normally the easiest to get in touch with at first, though the ones in the palms of your hands and in your feet shouldn’t be too hard to feel either. If you align your palms facing each other, and hold them a few inches apart, you may be able to feel your palm chakras right now.

Now the chakras don’t function independent of each other, they’re all connected. Even in a very unaware person, they’re at least open a little bit, if they weren’t the person would be dead. The chakras themselves are connected to each other through energy channels called nadis, and these energy channels, along with the chakras themselves, make up what’s known as the subtle body, energetic body, or light body.

While everyone has an energetic body, it’s clear that not everyone is aware of it, so why is that? For most people, the energy flowing through their bodies is just a trickle. Enough to keep them from dying, but not enough for them to truly Live. Their chakras have become blocked up, gunked up with emotional baggage, fears, and beliefs of limitation. These constrict the energy flow between chakras, and hence for the whole Being, and also manifest as physical disease.

spiritual-awakening2I mentioned before that the throat chakra has to do with communication, and as such it’s blocked up by things like not expressing yourself, letting people walk all over you, that sort of thing. Past fears and childhood trauma may have caused a person to be afraid to truly express themselves, and these things need to be healed to have a healthy and full functioning throat chakra. It’s a similar healing process for the other chakras, though different too as each chakra deals with different aspects (refer to link I gave above).

So what exactly is Kundalini? There’s some differing opinions there, some personify Kundalini as a Goddess, but I’m going to focus upon Kundalini as a process. It’s a process of energetic clearing that ultimately leads to having a fully functioning chakra system. Traditionally, it’s supposed to start at the root chakra, and work it’s way upwards through each chakra, but from my experience and from a few others I’ve talked to, it started at the crown chakra and worked it’s way downwards. I’ve heard of it happening both ways.

spiritual-awakening-course1The Kundalini process can be ridiculously intense. It’s been described as a freight train running up your spine, and I can personally vouch for that description. For a person that doesn’t really understand what’s going on, it can be very frightening. My biggest recommendation is to not resist the process. Trust that the process will bring you what you are ready for. Resistance makes things ten times more difficult, and can result in a very painful and fearful process.

As I went through Kundalini activation, I noticed many changes. My physical sense became much more sensitive, gone was my previous tunnel-vision, and for a while load noises that didn’t used to bother me became a bit painful. At one point, it was like the whole outer world was reborn anew. What was previously mundane and boring became miraculous, life was suddenly full of adventure and child-like wonder again. The subtle feelings that were at first difficult to get in touch with began to integrate into every aspect of my life. My empathic connection to others was enhanced enormously, and I could probably go on and on and on about all the other changes.

For many, most of what I’ve mentioned here probably isn’t anything new. This stuff isn’t exactly hidden knowledge among spiritual groups anymore. For others though, it’s my intention that this helps them to understand what’s going on and to remove some of the fear they may be having.

8 Ways To Take Control Back Over Your Mind

 

Written by Amateo Ra| If you are reading this, you are ready to take control of your mind. Since the beginning of our lives, our minds have been programmed by our surroundings and by the World at large. As we grow, evolve and awaken, we learn we have to take back control of our minds.

What are we taking control back from? Well, in part, the immense amount of cultural, societal educational and institutional programming that has greatly influenced who we are, how we view ourselves and our actions.

You don’t need to be a person who needs to feel imprisoned to sit still and be confined to a desk or a cubicle in order to conform. Your relationships don’t need to model modern day sitcoms. Your daily energy doesn’t need to be directed to mindless drama which is governed to distract us from deeper meaning and connection. We must clear this corruption within ourselves in order to change the World around us.

Distractions are everywhere, pulling at us and programming our minds toward needless points of focus meant to disempower us. To drive us into compulsive consumerism and selfishness, rather than community, connection and the drive for Global change in the small actions we take each day.

I want you to take back control of your mind, because I believe it’s imperative to your own personal health and well-being, as well as what’s required to step out in service to the World. I am here to serve, and I know you are too.

1) Be Hyper Selective about the Media you Consume

Marketers all across the Globe are tracking your patterns, buying your information and studying your habits in order to funnel you into purchasing products from the companies that hire them.

If you are inclined to cave, and make impulse unhealthy purchases, such as fast food, they are aware of that, even to the exact percentage of likelihood for you to make that impulse buy. They push ads upon us until our willpower gets weak, and they finally get us to cave.

This is one form of mind control being practiced publically every day. It’s manipulative and it was created to be. You have to take back control from these super rich mega-corporations by making strong willed healthy decisions that support your local community.

Media is always having us invest in fabricated stories in the form of movies and tv, to invest energy to made-up characters, rather than give sincere and powerful attention to our own lives.

Be hyper selective about the media you consume, because it could be consuming you. This isn’t shared to make you feel fearful. Rather, for you to embrace how incredibly powerful and valuable your energy, attention and decisions are.

2) Create Healthy Daily Rituals

Daily Rituals are the ultimate mind control hack that exist. Here’s an insight which changed my life.

 

How you choose to program your day, from morning to night, is up to you. Realize that companies everywhere have massive incentive to infiltrate your daily rituals with their own products and ads. There are countless of supportive and beneficial businesses who want to help you improve your lifestyle, just be selective about who you let in.

Your time, space and actions are sacred, and your daily rituals are your opportunity to value yourself and life. Make positive choices and know, consistency is everything when it comes to taking back control of your mind.

Tip: Create & outline a perfect day from what you do when you get out of bed, how you spend your day and how you end it. Work each day to model your whole life after your perfect day.

3 ) Exercise & Get In Your Body

Did you know that it’s been scientifically proven that exercise literally makes you smarter?

All forms of exercise improve cognition, help re-build neuro-connectivity in the brain and prevent degeneration of the mind. If you want to practice a form of protest, there is no better one than getting in your body and getting it healthy and fit.

Our bodies are extensions of our minds & hearts. We must “live in our limbs” as we say. Stagnant energy of the mind builds in the body, and many people begin to slow down. Enter more television, internet surfing, impulsive food habits and mindless entrainment. Don’t go down that path, and if you are on it, stop! It can be extremely challenging, but don’t give up. You got this!

Here’s one of my favorite videos about movement:

 

4 ) Learn How to Focus without getting Distracted

Harnessing our ability to focus on one thing is essential to mind control. Our minds love to wander, and in that wandering often times we end up in in places, and internet and social media black holes we never intended.

It’s imperative we learn to harness that energy and apply it to a specific focus. This can be one challenging practice, as cultural and technological programming, including multi-tab web surfing, means we get massive neuro-stimulation, including the release of brain rewarding chemicals, when we multi-task and are scattered.

Take back your power and learn to master the mind. Tony Robbins even said:

 

5 ) Be Selective About What You Invest in Energetically

I see people everyday blindly investing so much energy into things they don’t prefer. I’m equally as guilty, as it’s just too easy to get hooked on the latest trends, media scandal or even a frustrating person in your life.

Invest your energy very carefully and make sure each day the majority of your attention and energy is geared toward what you want for yourself, your life, your relationships and your surroundings. If you find yourself deeply entangled in having invested yourself energetically in something you don’t prefer, ask yourself what is it trying to teach you and then get clear on the next steps you need to withdraw your investment with care and consideration.

Don’t be hasty! As hastiness to change certain energetic investments often means we subconsciously get tangled in another investment we don’t prefer.

6 ) The Power of Perspective

Our perspective of the World literally changes the reality we live in. This has been proven by quantum physics and even studies on how we project our emotions and thoughts and how it influences the structure of water.

 

 

Circumstances don’t have prescribed responses. You don’t need to base your reaction toward something that happens to you based on how others have responded previously. Taking back control of your mind means the full realization that our responses are our responsibility. We must break the impulsive conditioning that drives us to disempowered perspectives.

With the right perspective, a World of your dreams becomes possible, actual and real.

7 ) Master a Craft

Start learning, pursuing and practicing something that really inspires you. Sociological Studies by Malcolm Gladwell state that we have to do something for an average of 10,000 hours before we master it.

That’s a lot of hours practicing control of our minds and focus. There is nothing better to liberate our minds than to apply and direct them toward something. Our minds like taking commands from our desires, but without that focus, we are highly susceptible to impulsive influence.

Start creating!

8 ) Develop an Endless Connection to Spirit



 

Spirit is our greatest ally toward self-liberation. I like to say the best remedy for living in the matrix, is being connected to the unified field of the Universe.

Our connection to Spirit, Nature & Universal intelligence is designed to awaken us and support our evolution. We must decide the future we would like to create by virtue of our thoughts and actions, and Spirit wants to inform us and steer us towards the highest outcome.

Our free will however is what makes taking back control of our minds so essential, as we are given the opportunity to fall into lives other people created for us if we don’t create them for ourselves.

Spirit is always here for you to be guided, reassured and nurtured by love.

It’s undeniable that our thoughts have power. We must harness that power, while using the energy of our emotions, to take back control of our minds. In this way we give ourselves the opportunity to bring greater meaning, love and consideration towards ourselves and to the World.

By reprogramming our consciousness to a greater vision of ourselves and our lives, we can then use our minds to develop, build and create that vision. Together we can literally build a world that works for everyone.

HOW TO NATURALLY HAVE MORE ENERGY

The desire to have more energy is common in our over-worked, highly stressed modern age.

One often hears people comment regularly on how they wished they had more energy to do the activities that they love, whether it is spend more time on a hobby, learn something new or be with loved ones.

There is no doubt that when we are engaged with what we love, we naturally feel more generative and energized.

The myth that we can have more energy is a false one. We can’t actually increase our energy exponentially by pounding 24-hr energy boosters, coffee or in the extreme example toxic drugs—all of these stimulants will deplete our body long-term and wreck our energy reserves.

spirit-science-flying-out-of-earth

When we are running on depleted reserves we create more muscular tension. We can not create energy from tension. In order to build energy we need to nourish our energy reserves through relaxation.

Relaxation is our means to harness energy in the long run.

Creating a balanced and harmonious life takes time. First, we have to unlearn previous habits and priorities that led to stress and disease. When we are able to function from a place of calm we will naturally function optimally; this occurs, because we are able to get out of our own way, process information more efficiently, and be present with what is occurring in each moment. Each moment offers a wealth of resources that we can not access if we are stressed out all of the time.

Notice, what happens when a person says, “Listen up.”

Listen To This

The conditioned response is to tense ourselves and hold muscular tension and contraction. This is not a conducive response if our aim is to take in new information and benefit from a dynamic learning environment.

Learning and energy are supported when the body is able to be relax with a sense of wellness and ease. The more we can learn to relax, unwind, and reduce tension, the more endurance we will build. We begin to feel better through the process of re-learning how to be and thrive. Creating stability in our lives means supporting wellbeing through activities and resources that enhance natural energy reserves. It is the simple everyday actions that lead to big breakthroughs for lasting health and energy.

Another important aspect to having more energy, is to recognize what is taking our life- force.

Often times we become consumed by activities, relationships and jobs that we do not enjoy. The effect of this over time is robbing us of wellbeing because these activities and relationships are not generative; they are not giving back what we put into them.

When we find activities and lrelationships that we really love they become our life-line. These benevolent cycles of energy circulation enhance and replenish our reserves, and chi. Unfortunately, this is not how most people’s lives are set up.

People go to jobs they hate, and consume sugar, coffee, and other stimulants to numb themselves out enough to “get the job done”—not recognizing this is the biggest energy leak of them all!

When we can fine-tune our lives, and focus on small every day activities that add up and build over-time, we can create more energy for the things that we love.

This perspective of focusing on what makes us feel nourished can help us look at the root cause of our experience— the lack of energy. When awareness is our guide, we can set up better cycles for ourselves, habits and actions that feed us. It can be as simple as redirecting our behavior when we need to, in order to have better experiences, more energy, harmony and contentment in our lives.

Just thinking about these things can help us shift our experience overtime, but actions are also important in order to create lasting change.

Simple action steps, that can help you have more energy:

1) Start today and stop drinking stimulants (or at the very least, try to cut down).

We can look for herbs and tonics that will nourish our systems vs. deplete our adrenals. Herbs like reishi, and chaga will help build chi and jing energy and support the body system. When we take them they wont create a buzz like caffeine, however, with repeated use we can build our energy reserves. This may take time depending on how long we have over-stressed our body system.

2) Make the time to engage in activities that we love.

It doesn’t help to worry so much about the things that we hate doing. First, if we start to incorporate more activities that enhance our experience of life we may find a renewed sense of purpose and resources. It is important to: take that nature walk at noon, go to the restorative yoga class, and play in the park with your dog. If we do what we love, we may start to feel better immediately.

3) Observe our thought cycles through meditation, journaling or a contemplative practice.

When we take the time to notice what is going on in our head we may become overwhelmed at first, however, we are beginning to build awareness. Are our thoughts creating stress-loops? Some people enjoy writing, others like to talk it out. It is a great ally to find an appropriate outlet to help re-pattern our thinking

4) Honor our emotions and intuition in the moment.

We all have a highly intelligent and untapped resource at our disposal—it’s called the gut. When we trust ourselves and listen to our instincts about situations, people, and activities, we may find our energy leak and therefore be able to spend less time there; Doing this, alone, will give us more time to enjoy life.

Again, our small everyday activities and habits will add up and help us navigate our lives toward more energy, contentment, health, and energy.

We needn’t worry about taking big actions toward change until we have fully explored what we can do in each moment and throughout the day to support the kind of life that we feel excited about living. When we build this reserve, we may find that we have more value to offer our loved ones, clients, co-workers, and world. It can be as simple as doing what we love, that will create generative feelings to share.

THE SACRED GEOMETRY OF PERSONALITY, THOUGHT AND FEELING

The rules of the game are about to change. And by about to, I mean they already have.*wink*

circles

Long, long ago, there was a realm filled with happy faces and sad faces. And all the smiles got mad at the frowns. All the frowns got mad at the smiles. And over many eons the smiles and frowns fought great wars. Across many generations, their contempt & jealousy for each other grew. That war was so great that it tore into our world ages ago and has turned everything into a huge charade.

Today, the war continues on…. And for what? Do we know who threw the first rock? Who smiled the first smile? Who frowned the first frown? We remember this ambiguous contempt and jealousy for each other, but why? How do you unite two such tribes?

bestfreakinpicture copy

Certainly history has defined that telling each tribe their view is wrong – is NOT the answer. What we are learning today is to teach the smiles and frowns to accept one another. To demonstrate what that looks like through our own actions. We learn each others’ perspectives, and we grow together, and merge our awareness and understandings. We make it so enticing that they WANT to understand. Unconditional love flourishes in that type of environment.Love itself will save us. I can’t say the same for science. I can’t say the same for religion.

The world we see is but a thin film. The world we feel lies beyond that… it is a world of form, and it is a world of infinite potential.

We like things to be simple and easily digestible. Chew it up and swallow. We freak out when someone does something that is unusual to us, something outside of the equation of our minds. We freak out when our mind is expanded before choosing to expand it. When a species is collectively trapping itself in fear, it leads to anger, which leads to hate, which leads to suffering.

I will not save you. I simply cannot. But I will do something better. I will teach you how to save yourself. We are so defensive because we mistake our identity to be our thoughts, or our feelings. The key is recognizing that you are not your thoughts. You are the awareness of your thoughts.

The key to suffering is to learn and practice loving thy self, and knowing that you are everyone and everything – and thus self love is the practice of loving All.

There are many ways that we can put this into practice. The female way, which is expressive, creative, flowing, and intuitive. Going with the flow, and trusting your intuition.

And there is the male way. This one is a blueprint. It is guidelines, it is geometric, it is mathematical, and it can be put down into words. I would like to take some time to express what these blueprints are, and how you might use them to recognize yourself in others, and others within yourself.

5 Strategies to Read People’s Emotional Energy

human-consciousness1

Emotions are a stunning expression of our energy, the “vibe” we give off. We register these with intuition. Some people feel good to be around; they improve your mood and vitality. Others are draining; you instinctively want to get away. This “subtle energy” can be felt inches or feet from the body, though it‘s invisible. Indigenous cultures honour this energy as life force. In Chinese medicine it‘s called chi, a vitality that‘s essential to health. Though the molecular structure of subtle energy isn‘t fully defined, scientists have measured increased photon emissions and electromagnetic readings about healers who emit it during their work.

Emotional energy is contagious. It can make the difference between a toxic and healthy relationship. It‘s crucial to get a clear read on this aspect of anyone you plan to regularly interact with. Then, you can decide whether a relationship is feasible based on your energetic compatibility. In my medical practice and life this chemistry is a deal breaker. Experience has taught me that it‘s pointless to work with a patient or form a friendship if such basic rapport isn‘t there. You don‘t have to force a fit when the energy feels right. Forcing anything is simply the mind‘s attempt to interfere with flow. Of course, we all have quirks, anxieties, and fears, but energy cements your bond with others and motivates you to work through the rough spots. Nevertheless, healthy relationships have a momentum that carries them, a surrender that feels more natural when you‘re both in sync.

When reading emotions, realize that what others say or how they appear frequently don‘t match their energy. You must let go of the notion that what you see is what you always get. As a psychiatrist, I‘ve observed how people go to great lengths, purposely or not, to appear in certain ways—either to impress, say the right thing, or sell you on something—but this “self” isn‘t aligned with their true emotions. Consider these examples: your spouse apologizes for blowing up but her hostility still lingers. A man you just met tries to charm you, but you don‘t feel much heart there. A friend seems cheerful but you sense that she‘s hurting inside. Realize: just because people smile doesn’t mean they’re happy. Or just because people are reserved, doesn’t mean they’re not ecstatic. Ultimately, the energy transmitted by someone’s smile and presence tells the truth about where they’re at. So, be smart enough to correlate a person‘s energy with their emotions. Most people aren‘t being intentionally misleading—often they don‘t know what they feel or project. They might tell you one thing—and believe it—but you‘ll learn to decode their emotions.

Here, the surrender to focus on is saying “yes” to the messages your body sends. Your mind may want to talk you out of your body‘s wisdom. Don‘t allow it to. Reading energy lets you attune to how you relate to people, who you feel comfortable around and who you don‘t. To avoid bad relationships and regrets, you must let go of trying to convince yourself of anything the body‘s intuition doesn‘t affirm. To help with this surrender, here‘s what to do. When identifying how you energetically respond to others always ask, How does my body feel? Does my energy go up or down? Then follow your body‘s lead rather than resisting it. In practical terms this means: you want to marry someone who increases your energy not drains it, regardless of how perfect he or she looks on paper. You want to sit beside a coworker who‘s positive, not negative. You want to choose friends you resonate with so that you can nurture each other. Then notice the positive difference in your life. To experience the pleasure of compatible relationships, use the following tips.

Strategies to read emotional energy

Sense people’s presence – This is the overall energy we emit, not necessarily congruent with words or behaviour. It‘s the emotional atmosphere surrounding us like a rain cloud or the sun. For instance, they may give off an aura of mystery, joy, or sadness. To compare extremes, think of the Dalai Lama‘s light, compassionate presence versus Charles Manson‘s deranged darkness. Presence is also associated with charisma, a personal magnetism that you‘re drawn to. Warning: charisma doesn‘t always contain heart, something to beware of. Charisma without heart can‘t be trusted. It‘s a dangerous combination present in many con artists and seducers.

As you read people notice: does their overall energy feel warm? Calming? Uplifting? Invigorating like a breath of fresh air? Or is it draining? Cold? Detached? Angry? Jarring? Depressed? Do they have a friendly presence that attracts you? Or are you getting the willies, making you back off. Also see if people look anchored in their bodies, indicating their feet are firmly planted on the ground. Or are they floating outside themselves, which may indicate flakiness and distractibility?

Watch people’s eyes – We can make love or hate with our eyes. Our eyes transmit powerful energies, what the Sufi poet Rumi calls “the glance.” Just as the brain has an electromagnetic signal extending beyond the body, studies indicate that the eyes project this too. In fact, research reveals that people can sense when they‘re being stared at, even when no one is in sight—an experience reported by police officers, soldiers and hunters. Indigenous cultures respect the energy of the eyes. Some believe that the “evil eye” is a gaze that inflicts injury or bad luck on its target. Also, science has documented “the look of love.” Joining eyes with a loved one (or dog!) triggers a biochemical response, releasing oxytocin, the warm and fuzzy “love hormone.” The more oxytocin your brain has, the more trusting and peaceful you‘ll feel.

Take time to observe people‘s eyes. Are they caring? Sexy? Tranquil? Mean? Angry? The way others look at you can make you feel adored or afraid. Also determine: is there someone at home in their eyes, indicating a capacity for intimacy? Or do they seem to be guarded or hiding? Certain people‘s eyes can be hypnotic. Avoid looking deeply into eyes you distrust or sense may be dangerous. The less you engage negative people, the less they’ll zone in on you. On the other hand, feel free to fall into people’s eyes who you cherish. Enjoy all that beautiful energy!

Notice the feel of a handshake, hug and touch – We share emotional energy through physical contact much like an electrical current. Ask yourself, Does a handshake or hug feel warm, comfortable, confident? Or is it off-putting so you want to withdraw? Are people‘s hands clammy, signaling anxiety. Or limp, suggesting being non-committal and timid? Is their grip too strong, even crushing your fingers, indicating aggression or over control? Along with physical cues, the energy of touch reveals people‘s emotions. Some hugs and handshakes impart kindness, joy, and calm whereas others feel clingy, draining, even hostile. Therefore, spend time with people whose energy you like. Be wary of those you don‘t so you‘re not depleted. Avoid physical contact (including making love) with anyone whose energy doesn‘t feel good.

Listen for people’s tone of voice and laugh – The tone and volume of our voice can tell much about our emotions. Sound frequencies create vibrations. Some frequencies we hear. Below an audible range, sound can be felt (think of a bass’ vibration.) When reading people, notice how their tone of voice affects you. Words ride the energy of tone, its warmth and coldness. Ask yourself: Does their tone feel soothing? Or is it abrasive, snippy, or whiny? Are they a soft-talker or mumbler whom you can barely hear, signs of meekness or low self-esteem? Or do they talk too loud or too much, signs of anxiety, narcissism, or insensitivity. Are they fast-talkers, trying to sell you something? Or boring you to death with a slow monotone, suggesting depression and no spontaneity? Be aware of sighing which relays sadness or frustration. Also, a pinched voice suggests emotional repression, over control, or a thyroid disorder. Always observe how much people laugh, a sign of lightheartedness. Does their laugh sound genuine? Fake? Child-like? Joyous? Or are they overly serious, rarely laughing? In addition, FBI profilers interpret a quivering voice and sudden change in pitch as potential signs of deception.

Sense people’s heart energy – The most important aspect to read about energy is whether people exude a sense of heart. This is the loving-kindness in us, our capacity for empathy, giving and connection. When heart is present you‘ll feel the warmth of unconditional love emanating from others which makes you feel safe and at ease. It‘s the unspoken sense of being accepted, not judged. No one can fake this. Our heart presence builds through our good intentions, deeds and emotional work to overcome fear and negativity. The heart is the most positive quality anyone can have. It‘s healthy to be drawn to it.

Reading energy is a game-changer where intense emotions blur your clarity. It enables you to see past fantasies or desires to pinpoint someone‘s motivations by sensing invisible messages they give off. I was once attracted to a man, a successful financial manager who knew exactly what to say to melt my heart. Todd was from the country club set and much too conservative for my taste—I often fall for wild, creative men. Yet he was smart, boyishly playful, seemed to “see” me and respect my sensitivities. We could discuss anything from politics to the nature of the universe and he‘d speak to me in an appreciative low tone of voice I melted around (I‘m very responsive to sound). Still, from the start, when I looked into Todd‘s eyes, I had the oddest feeling—there was no “there” there. His eyes seemed cold, vacant, even a touch mean. However, for better or worse, I was drawn to him, which doesn‘t happen to me every day. I really wanted to surrender to my romantic feelings for Todd, to explain away the niggling truth his eyes conveyed, though I knew I ignored this red flag at my own peril. But, as the desiring mind can do when it wants something, it downplayed intuition. I rationalized, “You‘re just too picky. Todd is wonderful. It‘s crazy to let his eyes stop me.” My friends also told me this, and I agreed. So, for a year, I stayed in the relationship. But in the end, this man‘s eyes revealed his true colours.

The problem was that Todd was a super-smooth operator and my raging hormones were blinding me. Also, I was naïve. I confused his seductive energy with heartfelt caring and was horribly susceptible to the charisma he wielded so well. It was a perfect storm of forces I didn‘t have a handle on. I needed to sort them through before I could read him from a neutral place which at that time was light years away. A policy of mine is to study what makes me weak or strong, so I can learn from it. If something knocks me off my centre I want to know why and not repeat the situation. To break Todd‘s spell, I had to grasp that what excited him most was not to love me but to have power over me. I just couldn‘t grasp how he or anyone could feel that way. He‘d reel me in with gorgeous intimacy, then be unavailable. Or he‘d be incredibly sensitive, then incredibly cold. I kept wracking my brains, “What could he possibly be getting from this.” Slowly, I came to understand that he got off on the rush of being in control. For him, it was an aphrodisiac. I didn‘t operate like this, nor had that been a dynamic in my past relationships. But, thanks to Todd, I can recognize it now. In retrospect, I‘m grateful to have learned this lesson about power versus love from a perfect teacher. Also, I realized that once again, I‘d talked myself out of intuition in favour of passion. I‘d surrendered to the wrong thing, to what I wanted, rather than what I “saw.” However, being human, sometimes I have to keep making the same mistakes until I finally learn. Today, I value the energy of the eyes more than ever. It communicates an essence in someone if we can trust this.

In your life, get used to reading people‘s emotions. Factor what you sense into your total assessment. Maybe just a single red flag will appear so you‘re not sure what to do. Then, take your time. Watch how people treat you. Notice if their words back up their behaviour. The purpose of reading energy is to become more empathic by sensing the nuances of different personalities. Stay alert to the signals energy sends so that you can see the whole person.

What Ancient Secrets Lie Within the Flower of Life?

Flower of Life

The Flower of Life is a name for a geometrical figure composed of seven or more evenly-spaced, overlapping circles. This figure, used as a decorative motif since ancient times, forms a flower-like pattern with the symmetrical structure of a hexagon.

The perfect form, proportion and harmony of the flower of life has been known to philosophers, architects and artist around the world. Pagans consider it to be sacred geometry containing ancient religious value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time.

Figures as prominent as Leonardo da Vinci are said to have ascribed significance to the Flower of Life and three similar symbols, called the “Egg of Life,” the “Fruit of Life,” the “Seed of Life”.

The ‘egg of life’ is said to form the basis for music as the distances between the spheres is identical to the distances between the tones and the half tones in music. It is also identical to the cellular structure of the third embryonic division (The first cell divides into two cells, then to four cells then to eight). Thus this same structure as it is further developed, creates the human body and all of the energy systems.

The Flower of Life around the World

One interesting feature of the Flower of Life is that evidence of its importance can be found in almost every major culture around the world. It can be seen in temples within the Forbidden City of China, in ancient synagogues in Israel, in the Buddhist temples of India and Japan, in the City of Ephesus in Turkey, carved into rock in Assyria, in Italian art from the 13th century, and in Cordoba, in ‘la Mezquita’ in Spain.

The oldest known examples of the Flower of Life are believed to be those present in the Temple of Osiris in Abydos, Egypt.  Most archaeologists maintain that they are at least 6,000 years old, though some have argued that it dates to the 2nd century AD.  The most peculiar feature of the Flower of Life in Abydos is that it appears that it was not carved into the granite but instead may have been burned into the granite or somehow drawn on it with incredible precision. It is thought to possibly represent the Eye of Ra, a symbol of the authority of the pharaoh.

The Flower of Life in Religion

The Flower of Life and the Seed of Life can be found in all major religions of the world.  They are linked by New Age authors with the Biblical prophet Enoch, the Archangel Metatron, the six days of Creation, the Vesica Piscis religious symbol, and Borromean rings.

The Kabbalah, which has historically been studied by the followers of Judaism, also holds symbolic connections to the Flower of Life.  The symbol of the Tree of Life, which may be derived from the design of the Flower of Life, is studied as part of the teachings of the Kabbalah.  Additionally, the symbol of Metatron’s Cube, found by connecting the centres of each circle in the Fruit of Life, is seen in early Kabbalist scriptures.

In New Age thought, the Flower of Life has provided what is considered to be deep spiritual meaning and forms of enlightenment to those who have studied it as sacred geometry. There are groups of people all over the world who derive particular beliefs and forms of meditation based (at least in part) on the Flower of Life. It is said to contain the patterns of creation as they emerged from the “Great Void”.

Sacred Geometry

Sacred geometry can be described as a belief system attributing a religious or cultural value to many of the fundamental forms of space and time. According to this belief system, the basic patterns of existence are perceived as sacred, since contemplating one is contemplating the origin of all things. By studying the nature of these forms and their relationship to each other, one may seek to gain insight into the scientific, philosophical, psychological, aesthetic and mystical laws of the universe. The Flower of Life is considered to be a symbol of sacred geometry, said to contain ancient, religious value depicting the fundamental forms of space and time

The Effect of Positive Emotions on Our Health

effect of positive emotions on health

happiness-quote
“The best way to overcome undesirable or negative thoughts and feelings is to cultivate the positive ones.” ~ William Atkinson

Its important we recognise our thoughts and emotions and be aware of its effect not only on our health but also our relationships and our surroundings. Positive emotions makes you feel happy and joyful. Everything around you seems beautiful, you enjoy the moment and things seem to fall into place.

Barbara Fredrickson, one of the long-time researchers and author on positive emotions, has shown how cultivating positivity can transform us at a cellular level and actually shape who we are.

Fredrickson’s theory of positive emotions, ‘Broaden-and-build’ suggests that positive emotions lead to novel, expansive behavior, and these actions, over time, lead to lasting emotional resilience, flourishing and meaningful social relationships.

Positive emotions or behaviour – like playfulness, gratitude, awe, love, interest, serenity, and feeling of interconnectedness to others – broadens our perspective, opens our mind and heart as we feel completely in tune with our environment. Like the flowers that open up when the sun rises, the same way positive emotions bring light and joy back in our lives.

According to Fredrickson, “Negative emotions are necessary for us to flourish, and positive emotions are by nature subtle and fleeting; the secret is not to deny their transience but to find ways to increase their quantity. Rather than trying to eliminate negativity, she recommends we balance negative feelings with positive ones.”

In this video she discusses how it broadens our awareness of the world, allowing us to become more in tune with the needs of others.

Shakespeare said, “Frame your mind to mirth and merriment, which bars a thousand harms and lengthens life.”

Lets see the physical and emotional benefits of positive emotions –

  • Faster recovery from cardiovascular stress
  • Positive emotions have also been shown to benefit individuals with cardiovascular disease.
  • Lower blood pressure and risk for cardiovascular disease
  • Better sleep, fewer colds, headaches, aches and pain, and a greater sense of overall happiness
  • Expands our perception of what lies in our peripheral vision
  • Research suggests that even more abstract positive emotions like hope and curiosity offer protective benefits from diseases like high blood pressure and diabetes.
  • Studies show that positive emotions help a person to overcome negative emotions faster and be more resilient and be able to cope with a difficult situation.
  • People are more playful when happy, so that leads better physical fitness, regular exercise or increased flexibility. (so its important to engage in an activity that makes you happy)
  • People who experience warmer, more upbeat emotions may have better physical health because they make more social connections

the effect of positive emotions on health

When you delve in that happy space, more possibilities and new ideas emerge and our creativity flows. Happiness and joy transform us, although you might not stay in that state all the time. There will days when you feel down and out, but if we observe our emotions and divert our mind and think of the happy moments, you will find the negative emotion fading away.

Don’t forget negative, repressed emotions can have detrimental effect on our body, mind and spirit. It takes control over you and makes you feel down, gloomy, unhealthy and its a unpleasant state to be in.

Nothing like a good humour to drive the negativity away, always works for me. So increase your daily diet of positivity or engage in activities that bring about happy feelings either meditation, exercise, yoga, laughter clubs, walk, painting, and so on. Love your life and yourself.

Positive feelings also help us live in the present moment and believe in oneness and interconnectedness with everything around us. To sum it up, Marcus Aurelius said “Remember this, that very little is needed to make a happy life.”

HOW A PERSON’S AURA BECOMES DEPLETED WITH UNHEALTHINESS

10009306_669758576415451_1815690458_n

Since ancient times we have seen pictures and paintings of different spiritual leaders across various traditions but one thing that is common among all of them is the halo that surrounds their head which is known as the Aura- energy field. Many have dismissed Auras, especially those professed to be experts in natural sciences. However, with the assistance of highly sensitive cameras scientists have been able to photograph this field some experts believe could become a tool for use in the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases.

This aura represents your physical, mental, emotional as well as spiritual energies. The aura is often seen a mix of fine coloured frequencies where each colour defines its own individual nature and characteristics.

The vibration of this aura is very fine and subtle so we need very fine instruments to detect it and also to interpret the different colours and shapes in the aura which can reveal us a lot of unsaid information.

A study, published in the journal Consciousness and Cognition, explained the esoteric phenomenon of the aura and energy field of luminous radiation surrounding a person as a halo. The study explained that in neurological terms, synesthesia is due to cross-wiring in the brain of some people called synesthetes. In other words, synesthetes have more synaptic connections than “normal” people. “These extra connections cause them to automatically establish associations between brain areas that are not normally interconnected”, said Prof. Gomez Milan, a lead author of the study. “Many healers claiming to see the aura of people might have this condition.”

Kirlian Effect

The pioneers in this field, in fact, are the Kirlians, to this day any halos around photographed objects are referred to as the “Kirlian effect”.

Kirlian photography is a collection of photographic techniques used to capture the phenomenon of electrical coronal discharges. It is named after Semyon Kirlian, who, in 1939 accidentally discovered that if an object on a photographic plate is connected to a high-voltage source, an image is produced on the photographic plate.

The technique has been variously known as “electrography”, “electrophotography”, “corona discharge photography” (CDP), “bioelectrography”, “gas discharge visualization (GDV)”, “electrophotonic imaging (EPI)”, and, in Russian literature, “Kirlianography”.

Kirlian patented many inventions to photograph the glow and captured many images of it. Over time, they noticed that the images varied from person to person. Kirlian and his wife were demonstrated that their images showed a life force or energy field that reflected the physical and emotional states of their living subjects. These images could be used to diagnose illnesses. In 1961, they published their first paper on the subject in the Russian Journal of Scientific and Applied Photography.

The aura of a person has been found to be directly connected to the level of health of the person. A person is considered to be healthy in when their physical vitality, mental clarity, emotional well being as well as highly positive spiritual energies are relatively balanced. So a person who is healthy at all these levels has a bigger and brighter aura and vice versa in the case of an unhealthy person. A faint glow around certain body parts may indicate the presence of a disease or disorder.

From the intensity of the glow, the Kirlians learned to determine the total activity of the body, the efficiency of different treatments, as well as the state of organs and systems. Today the GDV method is fairly well developed and can be used to conduct a general analysis of the whole body. The pictures are qualitatively and objectively interpreted reducing the risk of medical errors. The effectiveness of different treatments can be detected individually.

GDV is based on light emissions which appear in high voltage electromagnetic fields. If it were to become widely used in traditional diagnosis then, with its help, doctors could not only easily carry out common diagnosis at a given moment but also identify diseases which may occur in the future. This could greatly improve the quality of preventive care.

The Human Aura Can Change Dramatically and Quickly

It was found, that objects which are not alive, do not change parameters of their “aura” more than 2%. LIVING objects however can change their aura field dramatically and quickly. This provides scientists with unique tools to study physics of LIFE and consciousness using bio-electrography. For example, Prof Bunzen in Russia found that the response in Kirlian Aura seems to precede (appear as soon or earlier than) electric processes in the brain during a decision making process. From his research, presented in 2001 at the International Congress “Science Information, Spirit” in St Petersburg, it seems that a thought “appears” in the aura before any electrical activity can be detected in the brain. Is our consciousness electro-photonic to begin with?

It also appears that auras of people who interact with various objects such as drugs, crystals, minerals, colours etc. may change significantly. Modern Kirlian equipment are capable to quantify these effects in terms of their influence on the electro-photonic glow. It seems that detailed functioning of every organ and health effects can be also determined from the recorder stimulated electro-photonic glow.

All living objects show continuous changes in their aura. A major series of experiments of a team of scientists coordinated by Prof Korotkov in St Petersburg, Russia, demonstrated that aura of the human body continues to change continuously for almost exactly 72 hours after clinical death. It seems, that among other things, not only the time, but also the reason for death can be determined on the basis of these changes. It is interesting to note that in nearly every culture on Earth for centuries people observe a 3 day period between death of the body and burial.

Slowly and gradually as more research was done in this field of Aura photography different technologies were developed claiming to capture the human aura or the electromagnetic field. Now till date we have different systems like PIP (Poly contrast Interference Photography), DAS (Digital Aura Scanning system), RFI ( Resonant Field imaging) etc which claim to capture the human aura and also help us in detecting the subtle imbalances in our bodies.

More Science is Validating Sensory Activity and Consciousness

Even though we are often consciously aware of our current emotional state, such as anger or happiness, the mechanisms giving rise to these subjective sensations have remained unresolved. Brilliant research by Finnish scientists has mapped the areas of our body that are experiencing an increase or decrease in sensory activity when we experience a particular emotion. Each of these areas also affects our aura.

Each body area has a language as to what the organs do, the muscles, the nerves, etc. When a condition occurs in the body in a localized area, it’s to help us discover what we might need to change in order to keep “homeostasis” in our emotions, mental reasoning, and spiritual living.

Needless to say, that in the traditional ancient oriental medicine the concept of the aura is well understood and commonly accepted. Eastern practices, both medical and spiritual, are initially directed at correcting the aura i.e. the spiritual body rather than the physical.

Scientists such as Beverly Rubik have explored the idea of a human biofield using Kirlian photography research, attempting to explain theChinese discipline of Qigong. Qigong teaches that there is a vitalistic energy called qi (or chi) that permeates all living things. Rubik’s experiments relied on Konstantin Korotkov’s GDV device to produce images which were thought to visualize these qi biofields in chronically ill patients. Vitalistic energies, such as qi and prana, exist beyond the natural world.

The Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) program, which flourished for nearly three decades under the aegis of Princeton University’s School of Engineering and Applied Science, has also completed its experimental agenda of studying the interaction of human consciousness with sensitive physical devices, systems, and processes, and developing complementary theoretical models to enable better understanding of the role of consciousness in the establishment of physical reality.

Everything is Energy

Scientists and researchers today all around the globe have confirmed that the matter which appears to be solid in reality is NOT A TRUE reality. This solid looking matter is actually made up of pure energy which is vibrating at a specific frequency which gives matter properties like shape, size, texture etc. These solid looking objects like a pen, book and even the molecules, atoms and cells in our bodies for that matter are actually made up of vibratory energy particles called electron, protons , neutrons and further more tiny particles. So when these particles vibrate in their nucleus, a small electrical impulse is generated in our body and according to the famous law of physics “When there is a electrical field around a body, a magnetic field gets developed automatically”. So the tiny electrical impulses in our body results into the formation of a magnetic field around our body which is actually know as the AURA- electromagnetic field of the body.

Since everything in this universe is made up of the same constituent particles electron, protons, neutrons etc that means EVERYTHING HAS AN AURA. And if we keep on expanding these so called elementary particles we reach a point where we find nothing but pure energy vibrating at the very essence of these solid looking objects. Everything in this physical universe is nothing but energy which connects to everything in the universe.

If we study our ancient Indian texts especially the yoga sutras we will come to know the subtle anatomy of our human chakra system which is actually a very important aspect of our Aura. Spiritually we can say that aura is our very own soul nature, it reflects our innermost desires and feelings, emotions etc.

Aura is the layer of energy which interconnects all other subtle bodies and also acts like a shield covering and protecting our more refined subtle bodies like the mental, emotional, and spiritual and astral bodies. Like for our physical body to survive and maintain its health, oxygen plays a vital role for our existence similarly the Pranic forces which are commonly called Prana is the subtle energy that is required by our more refined bodies to function and maintain a good health.

Subtle Bodies Control Our Health In The Physical

So if we want our bodies to absorb oxygen properly from the environment we should keep our lungs healthy thereby keeping our physical body healthy, similarly if we want our subtle bodies to function properly and to absorb the pranic energies properly we need to keep our aura healthy. Like for our physical bodies we do regular exercises to keep it healthy and working, we should also practice some form of energy exercise which regulates the proper flow of pranic energies in our subtle bodies.

“Our Subtle bodies”, namely they are called physical body, emotional body, mental body, spiritual body and the last is our Astral body. So all in all our aura is made up of 5 basic layers out of which the physical body we are able to see with our naked eyes because it vibrates at a relatively lower and denser vibrational rate and the rest of the four bodies vibrate at a higher frequency.

Even if the physical organ is removed from the physical body, its energy imprint is always there in the astral body. Most of the healing which is intended to be sent on the physical body is first received on this layer, the healing is done on the intended parts of this astral body and then the new energy imprint or the information is transferred down to each of the lower body till it reaches the physical body.

Once the root of the disease is removed from the blueprint of our physical body, the symptoms appearing in the physical body start to disappear. The root of all disease then is not in the physical body but in the energetic body and no disease can ever take place in physical first before it is translated from the energetic body.

So in this way energy healing sent by prayers, reiki, intention etc. is always first received on the outermost layer of the aura i.e., Astral body and then transferred to the other bodies. The most important purpose of our aura is to act like a vessel to hold all our bodies together and also to act like a shield protecting us from unhealthy vibrations. So the stronger our aura is the more protected & powerful we are.

In time, a greater percentage of human beings will grow to adopt these concepts since consciousness is now at a level on Earth where we can understand why these energies exist without rejection. That in turn will assist in the progression of health to such an extent, that it will translate into a mastering of control on the subtle bodies that will no longer allow for disease in the physical body.

300+ Mind Expanding Documentaries

mind expanding docs

I watch a lot of documentaries. I think they are incredible tools for learning and increasing our awareness of important issues. The power of an interesting documentary is that it can open our minds to new possibilities and deepen our understanding of the world. On this list of mind expanding documentaries you will find different viewpoints, controversial opinions and even contradictory ideas. Critical thinking is recommended. I’m not a big fan of conspiracy documentaries but I do like films that challenge consensus reality and provoke us to question the everyday ideas, opinions and practices we usually take for granted.

Watching documentaries is one of my favorite methods of self-education. If I find a documentary inspiring, I usually spend more time researching the different ideas and interesting people interviewed in the film.

I hope you find these documentaries as enlightening as I did!

If you notice that a link is broken, please let me know in the comments and I’ll update it.

“When the Stomach Talks, the Brain Listens

The stomach does a lot more than dump acid on your latest meal. It also fires off signals to the brain via its own extensive network of neurons. According to Michael Gershon, chairman of the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology at New York–Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, there are 100 million neurons in this “second brain.” This arsenal far outnumbers the neuron supply in the spinal cord or the rest of the nervous system outside of the brain.

Although not involved in conscious thought or decision making, the stomach brain enables the gut to make its own decisions regarding the behavior of the digestive system. And the stomach has plenty to tell the brain as well. Research shows that about 90% of the fibers in the vagus nerve—the main nerve for the gut—carry information from the gut to the brain.”

Your Backup Brain

“The gut can work independently of any control by the brain in your head—it’s functioning as a second brain,” says Michael Gershon, professor and chair of pathology and cell biology at Columbia. “It’s another independent center of integrative neural activity.”

After five decades of groundbreaking work leading to discovery of the gut’s brain—known technically as the enteric nervous system (ENS)—Gershon reassured me that he, too, still feels the twisting of his own intestines under periods of high stress, especially whenever he calls the National Institutes of Health to find out where he stands on his newest research grant applications. “I become painfully aware of the kind of signals the gut can send to the brain,” he confides.”
