are vibrational aptitudes that tap into the energetic blueprint
of creation so that we can connect with that higher frequency
of Love & intelligence.
At each vibrational plateau we evolve into greater empowerment,
wellbeing and intimacy with our soul.
Your World Anew
In opening that transcendent
portal, you initiate an opportunity to reunite with your
higher self (collective resonance). The Higher Self is a
collective resonance comprising of many splinters of consciousness,
many of which have previously journeyed along this material
tier before. They have much knowledge to impart to you,
much knowledge to aid you in remembering with wisdom and
grace, as they are living through you on the front lines
of creation, waiting for you to enter into a space of grace
so that they can speak in a language that only you recognize,
and tell you through your heart who you are, what you have
come to impart and where you are headed.

Mind and the Spirit Contribute to Physical Fitness
Spirit is the life, mind is the
builder, and the physical is the result
mind, body and spirit are crucial coequal determinants of
health. The boundaries between body and mind are very fluid
and cannot underscore the importance of using powers of the
mind and spirit in marshalling the healing forces of the body.
We know that the human body is a marvel of creation that is
dependent upon an internal system of organs that work together
synergistically to give the body life to move, interact, work,
play and enjoy pleasure and the outside world. The body’s
myriad capabilities surpass all human-made innovations because
the physical human body, as a vessel, encompasses and protects
our Spirit. To ensure the protection of our spirits and minds,
we must protect our physical bodies, our tabernacles from
unhealthy choices that deplete rather than build. Hence, the
importance of the physical body lies in its refinement, which
leads, paradoxically, to the ability to transcend it by making
it a vehicle through which the energies of the higher self
can flow. We can do much to facilitate refinement through
attention to exercise, diet and the myriad alternative healing
chronic diseases are preventable through lifestyle choices.
We can better take care of our bodies through a well-balanced
whole food diet, regular physical activity and exercise,
adequate sleep, maintaining proper weight, avoiding risky
sexual behavior, limiting exposure to environmental contaminants,
restricting intake of harmful substances, making informed
and responsible decisions about health, and seeking appropriate
medical assistance when necessary.
The cultivation of a healthier body is an important aspect
of spiritual training. Heeding the guidelines and standards
of health and nutrition by implementing them into our
daily lifestyles can help better protect our bodies and,
furthermore, our spirits and minds.

loving attention and care

Physical Refinement: Know your power by powering your body
with Live foods. Develop life affirming habits that empower
and Master your physical body--make it move and exercise even
when your emotions would prefer your body to hang out on the
1- The body needs only enough attention
to keep it in good working condition, leaving us free to do
other things. Exercise should not induce a cortisol (stress)
response, otherwise the body loses energy or life force. Walking,
swimming, stretching, light weight training and dance
are good forms of exercise.
2- Develop a deep desire to live in the present,
keeping your focus in the moment. Living in the present necessitates
being patient with yourself and those around you. Carefully
examine your personal environment.
3- Recognize your personal power and its
depth. Do not take your energy flow for granted.
You are a powerful being - accept that responsibility. Take
care of the mind with enthusiasm to learn and the physical
body by eating live food and your energy level will rise.
This process will allow for spiritual awareness and growth.

structure of the body you live in stays grounded
through a connection with the Earth Body and is physically
nourished through food that is right for you, Physical Wellness

Integrative Nutrition I can help you discover the secondary
food that is right for
you. The process is based on you
as an individual, not a particular theory. I believe in the
natural intelligence of the body to aide in healing along with
purification to assist in loosening emotional and
physical imprints (miasm article)
I know health is a vehicle for the soul,
not a destination. Physical refinement requires disciplined
focus that prepares the body for spiritual work to receive and
distribute higher vibrational energies.
language is a very powerful tool. We had body language before

read through the body, not the words. ~Deborah
most effective approach to health is to listen to our body’s
innate wisdom and do the best to follow it as it is supported
by mental and spiritual dynamics. It’s really that simple.
The most basic needs of the body are: Presence;
fresh air, sunshine,
and time outdoors; regular movement
and exercise; plenty of rest,
and closeness; a simple natural
whole foods diet; and healthy
Ambivalence about our physical home that is the body remains disturbingly
pervasive. For many learning to honor the true needs of the body
is a discovery process since so many have been abusing it all
their lives. Honoring the body returns us to ourselves. Its awareness
allows us to root within ourselves--to inhabit our bodies fully
by bringing attention to the body's inner field. Such presence
allows us to feel from within and anchors us in the NOW.
Are you the Master or the Victim of your own body?
In the Body
muscles mirror our daily activity that is coded within our nerves
impulses, our needs and habits, memories and talents. Within our
genes is our ancestry and it forms the composite of our being which
is reflected in our body. Etched in the flesh and posture of our
bones are our pains, joys and within our cells, the chemistry of
the food we eat. In order to understand the body we must inhabit
the body and feel the life from within. The life inside the body
is the animating presence, which is the point of access into the
realm of Being. When we are rooted in Being there is an awareness
of the deeper self, our invisible and indestructible reality and
we know that we are beyond the outer form and connected to something
so vast, sacred and immeasurable.
define comfort as self-acceptance.
When we finally learn that self-care begins and ends with ourselves,
we no longer demand sustenance and happiness from others. ~Jennifer
the Mental Clutter
how can we “be in our body” if we ignore our bodies
senses that speak to us through pain or that lets us know when something
is uncomfortable? Denying our bodily messages that ask to be heard
is the root of our physical and mental sufferings. Our bodies are
living archives of information whose physical response system contains
innate abilities to receive from our senses. Our ailments inform
us of our resistance and of our imbalances. Why are we not actively
listening to the information that we receive from our inner senses,
our gut instincts? Listening is a receptive mode of sensitivity;
the inner ear that listens to the messages of the body, our moods,
reactions to others and the landscape of our dreams. The inner ear
also listens for signs from Mother Earth through the nature of her
rhythm and the signposts that give subtle direction to our lives.
Listening is often distracted by noise pollution whether from the
television, IPods, our social framework of consumption and our rigid
and negative thinking that closes off our ears and dialogue with
our inner reality. When we ignore our bodies we cannot establish
a circuit for mutual interaction between our inner and outer worlds--the
integrity of body and mind and
interconnectedness of body and Earth.. Body
awareness is a key component in developing a new relationship to
our environment, as it addresses the primary concern of our time,
how best to live on Earth.
physical body reflects our mind and emotions. The dichotomy
between our mind and body is an example of how we take our health
for granted. We do this by living in the negative portion of
our mental realm and so we have little to no relationship with
the body we live in or how its functions. We barely inhabit
our bodies yet we want it to excel for us. We are emotionally
stuck over dramatizing each event so that we may feel intensely,
but we don’t listen. We seek perfection in our bodies,
yet we distort, reject and deny its messages and instead allow
our minds to fall prey to a media fed ideal about how we should
look, think and feel at whatever cost.
some, the body is an obstacle in the higher reaches of spirituality
and everything is done to negate its desires. If we could alleviate
our erroneous misconceptions of reality about our body being
an obstacle and come to peace with it we would recognize that
is the primary vehicle of enlightenment through
which we create experience. Through our bodies is how we experience
the currents of Universal Intelligence that unfolds as the incredible
wisdom that dwells within the innermost recesses of our bodies’
expressed as the desire to heal and the will to live in every
cell, the “lifeprint” for human potential, which
is the birthright of our multidimensional nature. Ultimately
life is about keeping the flame alive within our selves, but
when we consume alcohol, drugs and suck toxic poisons into our
lungs, over or under eat--mistreat our bodies and then complain
how tired we are of life, we have little will
Our desire to embody our life force is so frightening to most
that every effort is made to sabotage so that the will recedes
and our bodies becomes diseased and eventually transforms into
some new form of energy. Why are we so frightened to allow the
life force of spirit, the eternal non-physical self embody us?
Amazingly, most of us fear death and we are already dead, yet
we equate the body being alive with living. We fear death because
we are afraid to live. We shun death and the fear of it draws
it closer to us--we die while we are alive. We pretend to Live!
So, to understand the body we must ‘be in’ the body,
feel it, listen to it and heal it!
Body as Gateway
in the mirror.
The face that pins you with its double gaze reveals
a chastening secret. ~Diane AckermaN
Have you ever noticed that what you think, feel, say and do
How you say one thing, yet feel something entirely
different in your body or when you say one thing, but think
another? Imagine all the ways that we say yes and mean no and
say no when we mean yes. Our bodies tell us to eat when we feel
hungry. If we honor our actual physical hunger, our body self-regulates
in weight and we needn't worry about dieting or self-starving.
We often mis-take our emotional hunger for physical hunger expressed
through our moods, tensions, discomfort and even pain. Our body
reveals that we are out of alignment with self honesty or inner
truth. Somewhere in the layers of our emotions lies an answer.
This Mind-Body split is often so thoroughly repressed that we
live unconsciously disconnected from our body's feelings. Certainly
we know people who live in their heads and don’t fully
participate in life or those that are so emotional that they
can’t seem to get a logical grip on things. Does this
excellent way at pretending through life sound familiar? Ultimately,
this separation of self with Source frequency at our inner core
being leads to most illnesses and emotional breakdowns, conflict,
self sabotage or feeling numb to our core essence. Chronicity
at the phsyical level is an indicator that our vibrational patterns
we are in alignment with the vibration of our inner core being,
our self honesty reflects our inner truth and we walk our talk and
live by example. We are self-empowered and inspired. To live in
a consistent stream of harmony or right relationship to life and
experience, we must make successive adjustments that result in growth
– the assimiliation of ever expanding experience. Assimilation
in terms of food and eating involves assimilation of all the planes
of life and consciousness. Real food is nothing but a consolidation
of energy for use by the physical body which is why we
are what we eat -- essentially, how
we treat ourselves, what we feed our bodies, how we metabolize our
emotions and honor our spirit.
of eating purer foods to help open our consciousness to
fuller expression, helps us to prevent or overcome disease especially
early on. Our only work to do is to line up with the expansion of
the Universe and make the necessary adjustments and reorient from
within. Our feelings are our barometer as to what feels good or
bad. We care enough
about how we feel
so we invest our energies in the kind of relationships that evoke
good feelings - from the relationship
to self to the world
As we listen and feel for our emotions, our standards begin to change
as we acquire greater discernment in registering our vibration as
it varies between feelings. Keen registry enables greater discernment.
our thoughts, feelings, words and actions coherently align with
one another, a steady and fluid vibrational stream is created and
we feel joy, passion and connection. From this stream we get another
angle on life and our problems are more easily solved. By our bringing
attention to them and committing to a self-imposed discipline and
training, we guide ourselves through mental and emotional changes
by degrees. This enables us to assimilate the experience. Engagement
with our personal interior landscape always leads us to a broader
self-loving desire to care how we feel, negative experiences pull
us into the trance of addictive consciousness. A constantly repetitive
cycle of experience that is stuck on a track of self hypnotic beliefs,
encouraged by negative inner dialogue, transgenerational and social
conditioning. It is this reaction loop that clearly reflects how
the ego-mind displaces its feelings of discontent onto the body
to keep them hidden! And yet, to suppress our most intense fears
gives them more power over us.
Until we can gain some sort of steady control over our body and
inner faculties by holding in alignment what we are thinking and
feeling, the expression of the authentic self remains suppressed
and in a trance of self deception that the ego structure promotes.
The clever ego-mind always finds myriad ways to keep the focus distracted
from looking within and to what is hidden in the relationship between
the unconscious mind and its vehicle, the body. The personality
ego abhors change and in resistance, it will cling to false beliefs
especially when its feels threatened in any way. Its very essence
is survivalistic and secretly fears its annihilation and yet, it
resists true peace.
But, since we are always non-physical Source energy expressing non-physical
energy in a physical body, we can access our true power through
the feeling body. The feeling body condenses levels of consciousness
that act as our unconscious mind. Our answers lie within the hidden
recesses of our body.
do you really FEEL inside your body at the core?
we stand or move in an upright position our body is in constant
adjustment and oscillation to keep organized around a vertical axis
in order not to lose balance. To achieve balance we rely to a large
degree on our internal perception of the alignment of our body in
space or proprioception. The same idea of proprioception translates
to how many slim people feel ‘too fat’ in their internal
body perception because there is a distortion of the internal body
representation which influences the outer shape of the body. Anorexia
and its psychological variations are clear examples of this. Unless
there is success in altering the internal body perception, curative
attempts will be limited.
At a quantum
level everything is energy. Our thoughts are energy, our words are
energy, and our emotions are energy. Whatever we choose to focus
on multiplies. That is, energy flows to whatever and wherever we
place out attention upon and it grows exponentially: what we think
alot about, speak alot about, and to whatever we respond with emotion.
We all have a relationship with our bodies and some have better
relationships with their bodies than others. Know that whatever
you think about yourself that "YOUR BODY IS LISTENING TO
the mind is caught up in replaying sabotaging tapes by telling your
body that it is FAT, it will continue to be fat for you. Your cells
are an intelligence system with which you communicate. Whenever you
say, "I am fat," your fat cells listen and respond.
I have always found this to be true. There were periods of time that
I felt less than beautiful and however I felt, was reflected back
to me in body weight. I began to take notice that I gained weight
when my inner dialogue about my body became negative. Equally, the
more accepting I was about my body, its curves and shape, the more
I loved myself. Today, loving myself thin or thick is an empowering
feeling that does not rely on others opinions about me. If I choose
to become more lean I exercise more, maintain healthy food choices
and essentially honor my body, my emotional needs and keep my personal
boundaries in tact.
There is a distinctive relationship between
and emotion, which is why controlling our emotions
is the key to sustained weight control. As our waistlines expand,
so does our obsession with both the problem of being overweight, and
the search for a solution.
you're struggling with your emotions, take it seriously and seek
out treatment; your body will thank you.
my early days of body unconsciousness, I struggled with external
perfection that did not allow me to love myself unless I was lean
and the right weight in my eyes. Cultural stigmas to be beautiful
along with the modeling industry were great ways to distort my internal
body perception. Like most, I learned to bring balance to my body
and emotions through trial and error, peeling layer by layer. So
don't give up and give in to what does not serve the best in you.
Your body's intelligence system is genius. I believe the natural
state of the body is to be lean and healthy. The body is always
striving for this outcome, yet the power of the mind to disrupt
this natural outcome is extremely strong -- especially when our
body's get daily doses of negative feedback. Don't listen to the
negative inner chatter. Instead, like a robot devoid of emotional
currents, put on your walking shoes even when you don't feel like
exercising...it's good for you, so do it anyway. And then remember
how good you feel when you're finished. This is the good feeling
that you will have to draw upon through memory to override the negative
sedentary voice that just wants you to do nothing, but be miserable
most people with weight issues are accomplished at negative self
talk the result is that by negating themselves, they keep "adding
weight" to the problem. It is almost impossible for your body
to change when you keep sending it negative messages. As long as
you say, "I am FAT," you give your body more instruction
and energy to BE FAT!
point being is that if you want to change your reality you must
begin to change the way
you think and listen to your inner dialogue
for expressions of injury, abuse and fear. Oh, and even fear of
the aging process. Just notice how you respond.
your body to do what it was created to do. Nurture it. If you despise
your body, you weaken it and block its power. Love your body in
its current condition. The body is in many ways is like a small
child vying for attention. It just wants your acceptance, to please
you, be appreciated and loved. Imagine your body as if it were a
small child, to whom your thoughts and words are directed every
day. Are you being an abusive adult to your body? Stop abusing your
body with your thoughts and words. Start loving your body with all
its imperfections, and you will be amazed at how it will start working
even harder for you to get the results you desire. Honor your body,
it's the only vehicle you have in this life. Teach it to serve you
in the most healthy and best way by creating
life affirming habits.
Your body knows exactly what your subconscious beliefs
are about every issue. These beliefs may or may not serve you. ThetaHealing™
has found that whenever there is anything in your life that is imperfect,
then there is at least one limiting belief in your subconscious.
You can change that belief with ThetaHealing™.
I've never met anyone who has initially loved everything about
his or her body. To experience more flow of positive energy within
you and between you and your partner, establish a loving, accepting
relationship with every aspect of your body. By communicating
and exploring life through your body, you participate more fully
in the dance you are both creating. Try this.
Name a body part that you don't like, such as your thighs, stomach,
upper arms, hands. Gently place a hand on that body part and say
this phrase, "I am willing to fully love and claim my ________
(thighs, for example)." Do this with any other unlovable
this as often as you like.
Bringing your feelings to surface into the light will lead to
discoveries and growth for yourself and in your close relationships.

leads to greater intimacy and vitality.

to 20 seconds.
Now, notice how you experience sadness in your body. Where do
you feel it the most? What specific sensations do you experience?
What happens to your breathing?
Notice small and big sensations. Do this for a minute.
You are doing this to learn how it feels for your body to experience
uncomfortable and/or painful feelings. To be with them without
stuffing, suppressing or create distractions away from...to
allow yourself to feel, acknowledge and release them without
any need to control or attach to them. Feel, acknowledge and
let go gently.
Ways to Shed Belly Fat

emotional body expresses as emotion, desire, receptivity and intuition.
This is our Will. Without desire and emotion, we do not have the passion
to do things. We become slaves driven along either by the insistence of
our mind or the demands and expectations of others. Our Will is not a
bunch of positive thinking by our mind. Our Will is the feminine aspect
of our being and it is underdeveloped in both men and women." ~ Ceanne

ability to recognize, understand, accept, feel comfortable with
and express our emotions appropriately and our ability to address
problems that arise in life plays an integral role in our emotional
development. How we manage our feelings affects our wellbeing.
Our refusal to acknowledge our feelings or a problem does not
make it or the consequences of denial go away. Denial never alters
reality, rather than create psychic turbulence between the conscious
and the unconscious mind. The unconscious mind of our inner source
always perceives in Love, while the conscious mind, in doubt creates
Every emotion is a reaction to an experience. If our reactions
to emotional stress are negative it weakens us. Our life force
is drained making us susceptible to dis-ease. And there is a physiological
reason why: the brain controls both specific emotions and specific
hormone patterns, and our hormones affect our health. If we are
in touch with our emotions, we reduce any health risks we may
face in our lives.
The mind and
the spirit contribute to physical fitness,
but may also play a part in illness in that a large percentage
of all physical problems have emotional roots. Mounting evidence
indicates that virtually every illness may be influenced for good
or bad by our emotions and attitudes, which include factors such
as faith and hope.
Our emotions can be divided into two types: negative and positive
negative emotions, such as anger and frustration,
increase heart rate and constrict the arteries, putting extra
strain on the cardiovascular system. Our positive emotions, such
as happiness and hope, stimulate the nervous system which protects
the heart and reduces blood pressure.
emotional stability requires an ability to adjust to change,
cope with stress in a healthy way, accept limitations and
enjoy life despite its occasional disappointments and frustrations.
However, not everyone's emotions are on an evolutionary
path of development where there is enough understanding,
discernment and self-acceptance to integrate more emotional
expression into their outer lives. This leaves the emotions
easy prey to others manipulation, coercion, powers of persuasion,
and essentially control. If the emotions are shut down abhorrent
acts can take place due to mental polarization where there
is little feeling. Such imbalance reduces Heart presence
Emotions are where our thoughts and feelings
are states of mind that can be altered so that perceptions
of the past no longer limit us. How do we create
inner coordination between the two? There are a few things
to know. Most helpful in uncovering emotional issues is
to drama--ours or others is enacted to distract
attention from seeking inside self. It is always feels safer
to dwell on someone else’s issues than to actually
confront our own feelings. In addition, our emotional reactions
are defense mechanisms that cover something much deeper--
often a horribly uncomfortable feeling that comes to our
awareness when we are quiet or when it has been triggered
by a personality, place, scent, memory, or action. Essentially,
if we wish to avert the consequences of denial, our emotions
and perturbations have to be addressed.
If you're struggling
with your emotions, take it seriously and seek
out treatment; your body will thank you.
Vibrational Healing Alignment: Listen,
feel, Let go and take affirmative action. Master your emotions
to develop your intuition and open your heart with healthy boundaries.
Listen to your inner dialogue and how you communicate to others.
Self-communication is imperative for healthy growth. As communication
becomes clearer you will feel empowered as you release judgment
and practice forgiveness with self and others. This practice
leads to compassion
opening the heart to new revelation.
2- Practice trusting that you can make good
decisions for yourself. As you make decisions, notice your
body's reaction to what you choose. Examine your attachments
to ideas, ways of doing things (habituations), other responses,
objects, and addictions (most of us have at least one) and
take positive steps to address the issues involved. The more
we let go to what we cling to the more room there is to fill
us with love. We must "Let
Go to Let In ."
3- Strive for balance at every opportunity,
even when your emotions are whirling around you. If you recognize
emotional imbalance, you can quickly remove the emotions from
a situation and respond in proper context to the situation
with reason. It's up to you to control your reactions. YOUR
RESPONSES ARE THE ONLY THING YOU CAN CONTROL!
4- Open yourself to your inner wisdom and
intuitive awareness. Self-respect and keeping integrity with
your word is an important tool
for continued intuitive growth that leads to higher levels
of awareness, contentment and wisdom.
5- Learn to detach with compassion from your
own problems and those of others. Maintain healthy boundaries
between feelings that are healthy and those that are counter
As emotions evolve they lead us to a deep kind of inner knowing
and freedom that can move us into a real alignment with others
without the use of pressure, coercion or manipulation.

Something To Ponder
elder Cherokee Native American was teaching his grandchildren about
life. He said to them, "A fight is going on inside me...It
is a terrible fight, and it is between two wolves. One wolf represents
fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity,
guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, pride and superiority. The
other wolf stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity,
humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity,
truth, compassion, and faith. This same fight is going on inside
of you and every other person too."
They thought about it for a minute and then one child asked his
grandfather, "Which wolf will win?" The old Cherokee simply
replied..."The one I feed."
Care of Mind

To be honestly who you are is to give up your illusions and face today

to a life of Intentional Excellence
“To be evenminded is the greatest virtue.
Wisdom is to speakthe truth and act in keeping with its nature.”
~ Heraclitus, Fragments
human intellect is sacred, and like that of the physical body,
it can wither if not properly and constantly nourished. Committing
to a life of intentional excellence implies a state of mind
that is engaged in lively interaction with the world around
us and always doing our best in very moment. It is a mental
state of unbridled curiosity and ongoing learning. It is the
application of things we have learned and the creation of
opportunities to learn more. We each have a responsibility
to pursue and continue our education which can best serve
our families and society and need to take advantage of the
many opportunities to increase our knowledge and understanding
beyond the school room.
Moving out of the tribal mindset of conditioned thinking and
learning from the best sources of knowledge and wisdom cultivates
a purer, more active mind better capable of interpreting and
analyzing the world around us. A strong individuated mind
also opens us to recognize our divine potential within. Care
of mind requires that we monitor our inner dialogue and censor
what we allow in to ruminate upon. This way we may break down
old thoughtforms. It is important to keep the mind pure of
dissonance and retain sensitivity through meditation
so that we may engage the world more wholly with our hearts.

Living a Congruent Life
you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will

wellness is consciously aligned in the vertical flow of spirit--the
physical, mental and spiritual aspects of the human anatomy that
represent one interdependent, interwoven system that is continually
in a relationship with the Unified Field (energy that runs through
the entire Kosmos, the organizational intelligence behind all
things). In conscious alignment there is a sense that life is
purposeful and without coincidence to guide us in the direction
of meaning, hope, comfort and inner peace.
health begins with spiritual congruency, which means that we live
by the standards we believe in—in other words we walk our
talk without lying to ourselves by justifying our actions with
a “story of why.” The issue of spiritual health is
not what we believe, but rather that we reconcile ourselves to
our beliefs and that we do not lie to ourselves for any reason
about the beliefs we hold. Such self deception always chokes health
and peace to death. Our same beliefs must also apply in the way
of Universal Law in terms of principles and ethics that are always
applicable because they never go out of style. Ethics are integrity,
love, kindness, compassion, peace, trust, humanism and so on.
Such values hold no pretense and are neither religious, but universal,
as each imbues the life print of spirit.
we assess our way of life from a personal quest for understanding
answers to ultimate questions about life, about meaning, fulfillment
of our mission, and about relationships to the sacred, as all
these eternal components of humanity, we rapidly reconcile our
real spiritual beliefs and make sudden progress. This inner
alignment is our soul’s vital essence
making changes and modifying behaviors to a higher plane. From
a higher perspective we gain an ability to monitor our thoughts
effectively, manage our emotions and develop faith in our body
to heal. But, if we lie to ourselves and fail to ask questions
and skirt the surface of things we diffuse our vital energies
on non-essentials and plod along without any real inspiration.
We may live a horizontal life filled with spurts of excitement,
but essentially the deeper meaning and opportunity behind the
world of occurrences is lost to mechanical living.
Once the truism of living our truth and abiding under Universal
Law is understood and accepted there is prompt improvement in
our health and happiness. As we cultivate spiritual health we
dramatically influence our physical, mental, and emotional health
because spirituality, like love, which is our essence, buffers
stress, making us better able to resist and fight disease. Without
stress we relax and heal more quickly and completely without the
reactionary process being in the forefront of responses. This
helps us to develop a deep feeling connection with spirit whose
focus would otherwise be used for survival issues.
more we guide our lives with ethics, values and moral intuition
by which we interpret our world view and organize our day to day
living, we become less self-focused and instead reach out to others
who are in need. This attitude of compassion
promotes health in general. It is the only way to
truly be at peace and to have ideal health in this life.
spiritual strength promotes positive thinking, positive ideals,
positive habits, positive attitudes, and positive efforts to the
best of our present ability in consciousness. These are the qualities
that promote wisdom, physical and mental well-being and enthusiastic
acceptance and response by others. And when we have attained sufficient
self-mastery we are able to govern the law of our own being through
right use of Will (higher will). See BUILDING
A LIGHT BODY.
All of life is imbued with spirit. We are all spirit
manifest in form. Spirituality is the backdrop for life and
is therefore, not religious. Religion in turn is a deeply
personal orientation to a specific belief system. There is
a spiritual aspect within us all and while some may feel uncomfortable
expressing their spirituality or find it difficult to reach
inside, others cultivate some form of spirituality as a necessary
daily practice. Spiritual practices can include being with
nature, being kind to others, of helpful service, praying
creating, singing (chanting), Art, playing music (drumming),
walking a labyrinth and contemplative practices, doing yoga,
Tai Chi, Eastern martial art forms, gardening, and so on.
These are all doorways to access our creative essential self.
Whatever chosen method of creative inspiration it is meant
to feed our spirit. Essentially, expressing the true side
of our nature, is to be a consistent extension of the world
are now ready to awaken because spiritual awakening is not an
option anymore, but a necessity if humanity and the planet are
to survive. Everything is speeding up – the madness, the
collective egoic dysfunction, as well as the arising of the new
consciousness, the awakening. We are running out of time. From
the perspective of the ego, that’s bad news and will give
rise to fear. From a higher perspective, the running out of time
is exactly what is needed for the new consciousness to come into
this world." ~Eckhart Tolle

Know Thy Self First Be True
Knowing others is wisdom; knowing
the Self is enlightenment.
Mastering others requires force; mastering the self needs strength.
~Master Lao Tzu
the Self is the most important relationship we have with the spirit
of life, as understanding who we are influences everything we
think, feel, do and say. When we develop an awareness of our inner
life, we become aware of the disparity between our integrity and
the way power structures operate around us. We see that they are
out of integrity and that this creates a conflict with our inner
values. The question becomes will we be moral agents of change
and align with like hearted people and coalesce power to bring
about institutional change?
How deeply we are connected to our core selves are the depth of
our capacity to be incorruptible in speaking our truth, living
with courage and how successfully we relate to others. Every aspect
of expression comes from this centrifugal force at the core. Is
the core of "your" being strong or is it weak?
The inner strength within us makes virtue possible and the "Given"
accessible. But, if we let the illusory promises of the external
life introduce distraction into our consciousness, it blocks our
self knowing and overshadows our co-creatorship with Spirit. We
are then out of purpose which in turn reflects back onto others
and we never come to know ourselves and live life reflexively,
day-to-day on the surface. An epidemic among spiritual beliefs
is the dis-ease of psychological
attachment to what we want to believe or feel the
need to defend, which is often very different from what we believe
in the first place. This disease works for both radical religious
individuals and for those who have abandoned their faith out of
anger, frustration or confusion. It is a dis-ease out of being.
cultivate a strong relationship with our inner life we must
not allow the external world to get inside of us, the fear
brackets of society or we will never be free of the conflict
of falsehoods, fear and drama. External systems merely facilitate
our reactions, fear or insecurity, and produce the means
to implement them. The influence of worldliness corrupts--it
opposes ethics to artificial divisions and undermines human
honesty and Truth. When our voice is vertically aligned
with Source we are consistent at all levels of our being.
Our voice is no longer an echo of others. Our sense to discriminate
recognizes those with clear voices and those of the masses
caught up in choices created for them. Where there is discernment
there is the recognition of who we are. 'Know thyself,
accept thyself, and be thyself!'
When our lives are not based upon external values we are free.
Freedom from within comes when we build strength in our psyche
and internalize our power. This gives us courage to live from
the heart and live in harmony with the Universe that in turn frees
us from the illusions fostered by the outer world. When we "Know
Thy Self," we elevate our attitude and project courage and
character to the world. We become wise and find contentment in
the power of our soul's authority.
human being has an immortal personality that is part of the great
plan of creation—a real self, and a mortal personality,
which represents us here on earth. Our higher self is closely
bound with the soul as mediator between the Soul and the personality.
Although, the personality may not be aware of its mission, the
Soul is aware of its particular mission and seeks through the
aid of the Higher self to bring it into expression via the ego
personality to make it manifest. The potential that our Soul wishes
to bring into realization through the personality are not concrete,
but in fact are higher
ideal qualities, or virtues
of the Higher Self. Such virtues include gentleness,
firmness, courage, constancy, wisdom, joyfulness and purposefulness.
Realization of these ideal archetypal soul qualities of humanity
leads to true happiness within the context of a greater Whole.
When these virtues are not brought into realization the opposite
feelings sooner or later develop reflecting those that we have
failed to realize and now show themselves from their negative
side, as defects. Defects such as pride, cruelty, hatred, self-love
ignorance, greed are the true causes of dis-ease. Every person
has an unconscious desire to live in harmony for nature’s
huge energy field is always endeavoring the path to least resistance
or the more effective energy state.
