MetaTranspiration

I awoke this morning and the air was cool and filled with mist. The fog was so dense the droplets collected on the windows. As the air became more saturated, the rain began to fall. As the rain fell, the mist dissipated only to grow dense again as the sun beat down through the clouds evaporating the water and filling the air once more.

As I watched this happen over and over I was reminded of Gen 3:6 “…there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.”

Water and air are often used to equate with spirit. Just as the water cycle flows, so too the same cycle flows with spirit. Spirit moves through the universe through you and back into the universe. It is the same transpiration cycle – literally flowing through.

So often, we think of ourselves as being the physical flesh. But where is the mind? Is it the body? No. It’s separate and apart from the body. I’m often reminded of the little man in the machine. Our body is simply a very complex biophysical machine created to allow the manifestation of experience. Without the physical body, the spirit would have no way of comprehending the experience of existing. There would be no touch, taste, feel, smell or sight. There would be no sensation.

Do not think of yourself as your physical body. Think of yourself as a spiritual body experiencing the physical world through the physical body. Stand outside yourself and observe all things. Be an observer, analyze the experience but do not get drawn into it. Allow spirit to flow through you; engage in the process of MetaTranspiration.

The Power of Belief

“Some men seem to attract success, power, wealth, attainment with very little conscious effort; others conquer with great difficulty; still others fail to altogether to reach their ambitions, desires and ideals. Why is this so?…The difference…must be in the mind, therefore, which overcomes environment and every other obstacle in the path of men. When the creative power of thought is fully understood, its effect will be seen to be marvelous…the laws governing in the mental and spiritual world are as fixed and infallible as in the material world…mind creates negative conditions just as readily as favorable conditions, and when we consciously or unconsciously visualize every kind of lack, limitation and discord, we create these conditions’ this is what many are unconsciously doing all the time…This law as well as every other law is no respecter of persons, but is in constant operation and is relentlessly bringing to each individual exactly what he has created;”

Mind over matter. The creative power of thought creates negative conditions as readily as it does positive conditions. Are you creating the environment around you and bringing into your life things you don’t desire or are you a victim of circumstance? What is the truth of this?

Can you create whatever the mind can conceive?

Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.

Belief. Knowing with certainty. Certainty brings something into BEing. It materializes matter from the universal field of energy.

You can hope for something, yet it will not come into BEing. Hope is not certain; it is too ephemeral.

Matter is certain, it has form. It takes on form through knowing with certainty that it is there.

Belief is synonymous with conviction. Conviction is proof. Proof is substantive, tangible. Belief brings energy into matter.

Beliefs are important in health, relationships, perceptions, how we function physically.

Are Beliefs and Will-Power the same? No, they are not the same. A Belief just is until motion is given to it. Motion is given to it through the Will. Energy is constantly in motion. Certainty provides forward motion. Uncertainty provides the opposite, backward motion. A certain knowing that something WILL BE, moves it forward into BEING.

We as people are packed down with beliefs. Things that we were told as children, things that we learned as we grew up, things we came to think through processes or experiences.

Do your beliefs serve you? Beliefs can be cast away if they don’t serve you. They can be replaced by beliefs that do serve you. Beliefs can change over time. As we grow and develop, our beliefs can change to accommodate that growth and development.

Take some time to examine what you believe and why you believe it. Ask yourself questions that bring you to look at your beliefs in a different light. Be open to looking at things from a different perspective. It’s amazing how changing the angle the slightest little bit on something yields a totally different view. Change your perspective and the world changes with you.

You can create the life of your dreams.

Prayer and The Law of Attraction?

I was going to write about a different topic today, but this one took form while the other didn’t. You might think this a strange topic for someone who coaches stress management but if you keep reading my blog posts, you will begin to see how the mind, body, spirit are all interconnected and all impact each other.

If you have stress – physical stress or emotional stress – you will manifest spiritual stress. You can have spiritual stress too, but most people do not recognize it as stress. I will be getting more into stress topics in the next few weeks, but first I think it important to lay a foundation. Actually, I am going right to the core of the matter. If you can circumvent or short circuit stress in the first place, it is a lot easier to clear the residual that a normal day creates. Having said all that, let’s get to today’s topic… PRAYER!

What is prayer?

Prayer is nothing more than concentrated thought supported by powerful emotion.

I came across the following quote recently, “You will find that everything which we hold in our consciousness for any length of time becomes impressed upon our subconsciousness and so becomes a pattern which the creative energy will wave into our life and environment. This is the secret of the wonderful power of prayer.” – Carlson Haanel Wattles Mentz, JD, MBA, PhD, How to Master Abundance and Prosperity…The Ancient Spiritual Keys to Success

James Ray says in his new book, Harmonic Wealth, “…you form the world with your intention and you hold it together with your attention.”

Prayer is a petition or communication sent out into the Universe. Usually, we pray for something we fervently desire. The Law of Attraction teaches that concentrated thought along with powerful visualization will manifest your desires. Visualization evokes emotion. When you focus on something with intense concentration and powerful emotion, you set in motion an inevitable law of creation.

When you do anything, be it prayer or a task, do it with all of your might – put your heart into it. Focus on it with intensity of mind. Then remember to Let Go and Accept BEing in the Moment and let all that you have created flow to you.

Let’s look at a biblical perspective for a moment. The Bible teaches that we should pray with heartfelt prayer. Why heartfelt? Heartfelt is strong emotion. Where do your strongest emotions come from? When you know something intuitively, you have a gut feeling. The center of your emotional being lies at the Solar Plexus Chakra. Have you ever noticed that when you feel intense negative emotion, you get an upset stomach? Emotional baggage gets stored in your body from this point. The Solar Plexus Chakra is your emotional seat of power. The middle dan tian, solar plexus region, corresponds to the body’s physical center of gravity.

The lower dan tian behind the navel is the seat of creation. Everything you can think, feel or desire comes from the very core of your being. The very center of our physical being houses our spiritual being. It is from here that we connect with universal energy. Energy flowing in through your Chakra centers coalesces in the lower dan tian. The lower dan tian supports our entire physical being.

There is a verse in the Bible that talks about renewing the inward man daily. We can renew our inward man through the exchange of life force energy with Universal energy. The body is a memory bank, a receptical of every experience you have ever had. Through our collective experiences, univeral energy has experiential knowledge. One of the easiest ways to renew your vital life force is through the daily practice of QiGong. There are other things you can do in just a few minutes a day that will help you renew your “inward man” such as meditation (prayer is a form of meditation), breathing exercises, visualizations to name just a few.

This daily renewal process is essential, even vital, to relieving stress and even eliminating it. The physical body will always experience stress on a daily basis, but when you know how to short circuit it from the start and clear the daily residual, you can live a stress free life. You will experience health, vitality, joy and peace.

If something you desire isn’t made manifest immediately or your prayer isn’t answered, then understand that maybe it isn’t the right time or it doesn’t fit into your ultimate purpose. Timing is everything in the creation process; it is part of universal synchronicity. Universal synchronicity is when all things work together for the good of all. Focus on being open and aware of your ultimate purpose; as you do so, you will see all the things you need being brought to you effortlessly.

“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone.”

Is there a Mind Monkey in You?

Part III

[Final Installment]

It’s time to GET IN THE FLOW.

In Part I, I talked about the lower dantian and the middle dantian. Were you aware that there is actually a third dantian? It is located at the middle or third eye position, the 6th chakra. It is called the Mind Monkey. Now, picture in your mind for a moment, a monkey. What is a monkey like? What antics does a monkey do?

Mind Monkey is a Buddhist term that means “unsettled, restless, capricious, whimsical, fanciful, inconstant, confused, indecisive, uncontrollabe.”

This is exactly how the mind/brain reacts to the inner guidance of the “intellect” (the spiritual lower dantian and emotional middle dantian). The Mind Monkey takes over and convinces you to ignore your intuition or gut feeling. The Mind Monkey says that you have to listen to reason. The Mind Monkey makes you confused by convincing you not to follow your heart. The Mind Monkey is capricious making you go off on all kinds of tangents.

Haven’t you had enough of the Mind Monkey? Wouldn’t you like to get him off your back and off your mind and get your mind/brain focused on your inner guidance?
 
You can! It’s not as hard you might think. It takes a little time and a little practice, but you can LET GO and GET IN THE FLOW. Excessive emotion, sadness, anger, anxiety, overjoyousness, and overexcited are unbalanced emotions and create energy blocks in the body. There are simple ways to clear the blocks and put your body back in a state of harmony, in a place of calm where your energy in all centers is harmonized.

I coach my clients to identify their energy blocks and show them how to release those energy blocks. We then work on identifying the main causes of the energy blocks. In six to 12 weeks, you can begin experiencing fun, joy and relaxation again with little effort. You will learn how to recenter yourself into a place of calm where you can experience the emotions of highest vibration – Peace, Joy and Love.

As you LET GO of the Mind Monkey and find your true purpose for being, you will experience inner happiness, peace, a feeling of being connected to the universe.

You will learn how to get your energy moving and keep it moving freely, renewing your inner person daily, staying revitalized through the continuous flow of Universal Energy.

Isn’t it time for you to LET GO and GET IN THE FLOW?

You are a cell in the body of the Creator. The Universe is waiting for you to reconnect.

Monkey in the Mind?

Part II

[This blog post has 3 parts; to find the answer read each post daily. You’ll be surprised!]

After coming to this conclusion that the “intellect” in man actually resides within the very core of our being, I went looking for sources to help validate this. Here is what I found:

I began in Genesis, 2:7 “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”

The breath of life, vital life force, energy, was breathed into man. As man procreates, that energy comes directly from it’s source, the Creator, into the very core of our being.

The margin reference in my bible referred me to topic 2242 Spirit of Man. Here is what I found:

Job 32:8 But there is a spirit in man and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.

Pr 20:27 The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly. (Eccl 3:21)

Eccl 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

2 Cor 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

Here is instruction to renew the inward man. To keep the energy flowing.

There is a passage in the Koran (Quran) that corresponds to Gen 2 and Eccl 12

“We created man from an extract of clay. Then We made him as a drop in a place of settlement, firmly fixed. Then We made the drop into an alaqah (leech, suspended thing, and blood clot), then We made the alaqah into a mudghah (chewed substance…” Quran 23:12-14

[emphasis in the above passages is mine, whether or not you believe in a higher “BEING”, physics tells us that everything is energy and we come from that energy]

Here is what the world of physics and metaphysics tells us:

Quoted from The Hidden Face of God  [emphasis mine]

A single consciousness, an all-encompassing wisdom, pervades the universe. The discoveries of science, those that search the quantum nature of subatomic matter, those that explore the molecular complexity of biology, and those that probe the brain/mind interface, have moved us to the brink of a startling realization: all existence is the expression of this wisdom. In the laboratories we experience it as information first physically articulated as energy and then condensed into the form of matter. Every particle, every being, from atom to human, appears to have within it a level of information, of conscious wisdom.” (prologue, page 1)

“There’s no competition here between the spiritual and the material. The two are complementary, as in the root “to complete.” When we see through the camouflage haze that at times convinces us that only the material exists, when we touch that consciousness, we know it. A joyful rush of emotion sweeps over the entire self. This emotional response – some might call it a religious experience – is reported in every culture, from every period. It tells us that we’ve come home. We’ve discovered the essence of being. Everyone has felt it at some time or other. Perhaps at a brilliant sunrise, in a work of art, the words of a loved one. The physical and the metaphysical have joined.” (prologue, page 2)

When you LET GO and Reconnect Spiritually, when you discover your very essence of being – you have unlocked your purpose for being. When we are on purpose, we are following our heart. We are not focusing on the how, we just know IT IS. We know in our heart that it is right. The physical and the metaphysical (spirit) have joined, they are in alignment.

“The age-old theological view of the universe is that all existence is the manifestation of a transcendent wisdom, with a universal consciousness being its manifestation. If I substitute the word information for wisdom, theology begins to sound like quantum physics.” (prologue, page 2)

“The upsurge of interest in meditation, Eastern religions, and kabala reflects an almost desperate search to rediscover our spiritual roots.” (prologue, page 4)

“To relegate, a priori, those feelings of love and joy and spirituality to some assumed function of our ancestors’ evolutionary drive for survival masks the greatest pleasure in life, the experiential realization of the metaphysical.” (prologue, page 4)

The universe is the physical expression of the metaphysical. All that we know of the putative Creator is found within the physical creation.” (Chapter 1, page 5)

Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.

Is your Mind making a Monkey of You?

Are monkeys playing around with your mind?

[This blog post has 3 parts, to find the answer read each post daily; you’ll be surprised at the end!]

I’d like to start by asking – What is mind? Where is your mind? Is it in your brain? What are memories? Where are memories stored? We used to think that memories were stored in areas of the brain. While the brain controls many functions related to memory, cellular memory challenges that all memories are stored in the brain.

Not long ago, I was listening to Bob Proctor’s 30 minute audio recording on Communication. In the audio, Mr. Proctor stated something along the lines that man believes the “intellect” to be in the mind. He goes on to talk about the gut feeling and how we feel strong emotion in the solar plexus region. The ancient Greeks referred to the solar plexus as the “Heart of Man,” and this is where we get the phrase “heart-to-heart.”

This got me thinking. What if the “intellect” isn’t in the mind/brain at all? What if it is in the very center of our being. The place where we are connected to other people emotionally and where our spiritual center lies.

I began practicing Qigong several months ago. The center of energy (qi or chi) in the body lies in the lower dantian region. This region is located two fingerbreadths behind and three fingerbreadths below the navel. There is also a middle dantian located at the solar plexus responsible for respiration and the health of the internal organs. The solar plexus is also the location of the 13th chakra, or external heart chakra.

This area corresponds to the very beginning of human life, the umbilical area. About seven days after conception, the blastocyst implants on the uterine wall and trophoblast cells start to proliferate. Where implantation occurs is where the umbilicus will form and grow. In the next two weeks, the heart, brain, spinal cord, and gastrointestinal tract begin to form. Then neurogenesis begins. Brain activity and the heart beat appear about the sixth week.

There are four neural crests in the body that also correspond to the main qi centers and meridians in the body. It is interesting that the back and front energy channels correspond to development that occurs in the first two weeks of life.

There are 12 main energy channels and 8 secondary energy channels in the body. The secondary channels act as reservoirs. It is also important to note that the other channels pass extra energy to the front and back channels for storage.

There are many causes of energy blockages and they are better left for another discussion. What is important to know about energy blockages is that energy seeks energy. It desires to flow. The Law of Circulation is constantly in effect. If you dam a stream, the water behind the dam desires to continue to flow. It desires to join with a larger body of water. The energy in man desires to flow as well. It desires to flow into the greater Universal energy field and come back to us.We are energy. Everything that exists is energy. When energy isn’t able to flow through our body, our body tells us, “Hey there, I’ve got a problem. You need to pay attention to me and take care of this.”

Unfortunately, we’ve been taught to ignore our body when it speaks to us. We’re taught to take care of the symptom caused by the energy block, and the lack of energy flow goes unattended. What happens when the water pressure behind a dam becomes so great that the dam bursts? What do you think would happen to you if this occurred inside of you?

Where we connect with a greater energy, a greater force than ourselves, doesn’t occur in the mind/brain. We don’t communicate from the mind. Language is formed in the mind. Thought (communication) is formed from deeper inside of us. From the very center, the core of our being. We think that thought is formed in the brain because we hear thoughts in our head. That’s just the language mechanism working. The brain is like the Grand Central Station of the body. It’s a large switching station. The spirit or energy within us originates all thought and emotion. The signals get sent to the brain where they are translated into what we perceive to be thought. Have you ever listened to your intuition or gut feeling? It guides us through every situation in life. All we have to do is STOP and LISTEN! BE PRESENT IN THE MOMENT.
