Spring is showing off big time this year. It’s reflecting all kinds of amazing new growth — on display with beautiful flowers, leaves, shrubs, and lots of greenery. Maybe it’s a sign that we should reflect on our own growth and take a moment to acknowledge all that we have been through, how much we’ve learned, and the many things we’ve accomplished.
What a time it’s been!
Lately I’ve returned to many of my old hobbies and interests, which include bioenergy and vibrational healing. My interests in crystals, aromatherapy, herbs, and meditation have been lifelong pursuits. But now they’ve come full circle. I’m not just dabbling; I’m studying the science behind them.
Being a practical Goddess and rather earthbound myself (I do have a Taurus rising), I have never been satisfied with simple, fluffy explanations.
Two books I read recently shed light on these topics: Vibrational Medicine by Dr Richard Gerber MD, and Why Woo Woo Works, by David R. Hamilton PhD. Both of these men are scientists and, curiously, both have been interested in cancer research.
I’m convinced that it is time to let go of our fixed mindsets, especially around Newtonian medical thinking, and learn new ways of healing ourselves. I believe without a doubt that our bodies, minds, and spirits are deeply interrelated with the cosmos.
In fact, one of the biggest reasons I’ve been attracted to crystals, for example, is not only because they are pretty and colorful, but because they seem to radiate or vibrate positive energy. Meditation is enhanced by the use of crystals, and there is plenty of science to back this up.
It fascinates me that our aura, or etheric bodies (the unseen area around us,) contains within it all the information of our physical body, although at a more subtle and higher frequency. When we tap into this energy frequency, it can be useful to us for healing on a physiological, emotional, and spiritual level.
Our thoughts are a powerful form of energy that is far too under-appreciated. “Minding” our thoughts can and does have a profound impact on our health and provides us with an ability to manage stress and initiate healing.
Eastern philosophies and healing practices have been in sync with what some may call these more esoteric principles for thousands of years. Prana, chi, or life force — that which animates all of us — is a factor that is fundamental to life and to healing.
Many Western practitioners, including many doctors, are now beginning to incorporate some of these concepts. This validation is evidenced by alternative therapies such as Reiki, acupuncture, biofeedback, meditation, and similar practices being recommended along with traditional medicine and drug therapies.
One of the most interesting things about our current time in history is how “out of balance” we have become. Old systems seem more and more irrelevant when we look at our healthcare system, work institutions, currencies, food production, and energy/fuel needs, to name just a few.
Talk to an astrologer and they will vigorously nod their heads and tell you about current aspects that are pointing directly to all of this.
Although this might disturb some people, the idea of returning to some part of the past does not make any sense. In order to create something new that will be sustainable for the future, the old structures must be dismantled first.
This could explain why many long-standing institutions are currently losing favor and power. The idea of spirituality vs. organized religion is certainly being questioned.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama in his book Ethics for the New Millennium states:
“This then is my true religion. In this sense, there is no need for temple or church, for mosque or synagogue, no need for complicated philosophy, doctrine or dogma. Our own heart, our own mind is the temple. The doctrine is compassion.”
It’s as if a new portal has opened up for us. In order for us to pass through it, we are going to need to learn some new skills, new thoughts, new methods, and new ways of being that are essential to us.
In the meantime, here are some things to consider for your own well-being.
How to Open the Door to New Ways of Being in the World
1) Recognize that you do have the ability to tune into a higher vibration.
2) The very ground you walk on is a source of healing energy. We humans are designed to entrain with it, so spending time outside is needed.
3) Learn how to use vibrational tools such as working with natural crystals, aromatherapy, sound therapy, and herbal and homeopathic remedies, as well as conscious breathing, meditation, and prayer.
4) Notice your thoughts and particularly what you speak out loud.
One of my spiritual teachers, Erica Knowles, who passed over to the other side some time ago, used to say:
“I am the master of the unspoken word, and the spoken word masters me.”
In other words … be mindful of what you’re broadcasting as you pave the way to positive change!
To your eternal and gorgeous health. XO,
