Creating Positive Energy Through Kindness and Joy

random actos of kindnessYou live in a sea of energy—the Universal Energy Field (UEF).  Quantum physics refers to this field of possibilities as the “Quantum Soup.” Ancients called this life-force energy “chi” or “qi.” Western mystics talked about Cosmic Consciousness, Infinite Spirit and “The All.”  Contemporary philosophers discuss the “Divine Matrix of Creation.”

No matter what you call it, energy is energy and it is the “stuff” of the Universe. Energy is neither good nor bad—it just “is.” Energy only realizes its potential when in motion.

“Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.”  – Third Law of Hermetic Wisdom.

The Law of Vibration is an ancient concept that forms the basis for many contemporary scientific observations and theories.  Everything that exists in the universe has its own natural frequency of vibration.  Light, heat, magnetism, and electricity all exist because of vibration.  According to John W. Keely’s first law of Sympathetic Vibratory Physics, published in 1893, vibration is the beginning of all matter.

The frequency of the vibration determines its form—the lower the frequency, the more physically dense the form.  A form that is more refined and subtle has a higher or faster vibratory rate.  If you change the frequency of the vibration, you will alter the form.

Thoughts are powerful. Created by conscious, cognitive processes, your thoughts focus this life force energy. Each thought carries a form. Whatever you think, you transmit that vibratory frequency. If you want to create positive energy, then what thoughts do you think?

Dr. David R. Hawkins, MD, PhD developed a “map” of the levels of human consciousness (also called the Scale of Consciousness) that uses a muscle-testing technique called Applied Kinesiology (AK).  Muscle testing uses your body’s muscles to give a “true/false” reading.  In AK, a muscle that tests strong equals a “true” reading whereas a muscle that tests weak indicates a “false.”  AK presupposes that your body intrinsically “knows” what is beneficial for you as well as harmful.  Through calibration with AK, you can figure out what is “good” and “true” for your well-being as well as what can be detrimental (false) for you.

In his doctoral dissertation, Dr. Hawkins researched and documented the nonlinear, spiritual realm. His dissertation, titled “Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis and Calibrations of the Level of Human Consciousness,” is an elaborate discussion of the Scale of Consciousness and its significance.  He outlines his scientifically validated work in his groundbreaking book, Power vs. Force: The Anatomy of Consciousness (Veritas Publishing, 1995).

Each level of consciousness (LOC) coincides with definable human behaviors and perceptions about life and God/Spirit. Each level represents a corresponding attractor field of varying strength that exists beyond the three-dimensional reality. Dr. Hawkins determined that each LOC has a critical point to which its defined field entrains.  The numbers on Dr. Hawkins’ scale represent calibrations of measurable vibratory frequencies of the levels of human consciousness and its corresponding level of reality.

By testing the participants using AK, Dr. Hawkins determined that all tested weak when exposed to the behaviors list below 200. To varying degrees, all participants tested strong to those behaviors calibrated about 200. If you want to create positive energy, then align your thoughts and actions with those behaviors above 200.

“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” ~ Lao Tzu

Expressing kindness is probably one of the best ways to get your mojo working in a positive direction. Kindness is a virtue honored by many cultures and ethical systems. Underlying this behavior is an altruistic concern for others, as true giving expects no return. Research demonstrates that an act of kindness not only benefits the receiver, it physically uplifts the giver via “feel good” neurotransmitters released in the brain.  That is if only you don’t “keep score.”

It takes courage to step out of you comfort zone and commit random acts of kindness. You need to have a non-judgmental, neutral mindset plus a willingness to accept the other for who they are.

Want to practice random acts of kindness? You can use your thoughts to radiate kindness to others without physically doing something for the other. Just by broadcasting positive thoughts, you can perhaps make someone’s present moment more joyful.

Create energy packets of Good Vibrations—and send them to a random individual.

“You are like a candle. Imagine you are sending light out all around you. All your words, thoughts and actions are going in many directions. If you think something kind, your kind words go in many directions, and you yourself go with them.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

When you first do this exercise, start in familiar surroundings, i.e. your workplace, a social gathering, or in one of your favorite hangouts. Using your intuition, notice one person in your immediate area. You might observe that they are waiting in line, maybe look tired, bored, or a bit frustrated. Do the following:

1.            Look at the person with positive neutrality.  Quickly, find one feature about this person that you like or find agreeable.  This can be anything from a pleasing smile to an attractive pair of glasses.  It can be a physical feature or part of their attire. No matter how insignificant, discover one aspect of the individual that is positive in your world. If finding a positive attribute is a challenge, then move on to another person.

2.            When you found that one thing, use your words to create a well-formed, positive thought about the person.  “She has a friendly smile.”  “What a great pair of glasses!” Phrase this thought as if you were delivering a sincere complement.

3.            As you look at that person, think your well-formed positive thought. Staring isn’t appropriate. A glance will suffice.

4.            Keep thinking that thought.  Acknowledge that person with a smile.

There – your packet of Good Vibrations just delivered a random act of kindness.

Check In with Your Chakras – Part Two

Check In with Your Chakras exerciseYELLOW FULLBODY AURA

Find 15 minutes of a quiet, uninterrupted space and time. Set a timer for 15 minutes. You might want to make available a way to record your experiences at the end of the exercise, such as a pad and pencil or audio recorder. Once in your space, close your eyes. This automatically places you in a relaxing, alpha state of brain waves. Take several deep relaxing “belly” breaths.

Starting with the root Chakra, dialogue with this Chakra – ask it to tell you in a minute or less, what it needs from you. Pay attention and be neutral – tell yourself that you will remember its words. Keep an open mind if the Chakra tells you something that doesn’t match your expectations of this Chakra. After the Root Chakra has told you what it needs, thank it, tell it that you love it and appreciate it as part of your energy system.

Dialogue with each Chakra in the following order – Sacral/Solar Plexus/Heart/Throat/3rd Eye/ Crown and repeat the process of asking, paying attention, and expressing gratitude.

When finished with this process, place one hand under your tailbone and the other on top of your head.  It doesn’t matter which hand goes where – do whatever seems comfortable. Imagine there is a figure “8” (infinity sign ∞) that is forming between your two hands. Notice what you notice – thank your Chakras for working together to balance your body, mind, and spirit. When it seems right, remove your hand from this position and enjoy the quiet until your timer goes off. Take a few extra minutes to record your experiences.

Repeat the Check In with Your Chakras exercise frequently. Your seven major Chakras are your team, playing together in your game of life. Get to know your team members and what each needs to optimize their performance.

The Power of Energetic Visualization: “Dissolving” My Kidney Stone

Gerry shares his direct experience with kidney stones, a physical condition that can be very painful. There is no such thing as a sudden onset of a kidney stone – the stone is the result of an imbalance in food consumed over a period of time.

Once Gerry became aware of this stone, he examined his food choices and changed what he consumed. The next step was to dissolve this stone using the power of energetic visualization.

The definition of visualization according to Web Definitions is a “visual image: a mental image that is similar to a visual perception”. Visualization requires the use of imagination. You can visualize an image that is either stationary or moving. The brightness, color, and clarity of the image add to the effectiveness of the visualization. Charging it with positive emotional energy makes the image really come alive. This can be accomplished by envisioning white light descending from the universe and filling the image with positive emotional energy.

The summer of 1988 was hot, dry and sunny. I have always enjoyed this type of weather and the amount of Vitamin D I absorbed while basking in the sun’s warmth. Hot summers are also a time for deliciously cold ice cream and soda pop, which I consumed, in copious amounts.

As the season wore on I experienced twinges of pain in my abdomen. After several weeks these pains became more intense. In early August I visited my doctor to check out this pain. I was diagnosed with a kidney stone the size of a large marble. My doctor installed a tube in my urinary track to hold the stone in place.  The general plan was that I would undergo a lithotripsy procedure. This treatment uses intense vibrations to breakup the stone into pieces so small that they would pass naturally.

The plan of action seemed like a good one except for one problem – I would have wait in line to receive this treatment as there were many other people on the waiting list before me.  After the tube was installed the stone did not bother me excessively.  I was scheduled for the lithotripsy treatment in early January of the following year.

I decided to be proactive and use energetic visualization to reduce the size of the stone. Problems such as kidney stones are actually blessings in disguise because they warn you of serious imbalance in your system. In my case the imbalance was caused by my diet, namely the ice cream and soda pop.  I abstained from both for the remainder of the summer.

I meditated on an image of how I “saw” the stone. I visualized a tan colored lump of sandstone about the size of my thumb. Turning up the brightness and contrast to make my image as clear as possible, I filled the stone full of positive white emotional energy. I meditated on this piece of sandstone, imagining grains of sand falling away from the stone. After an hour of energetic focus, the image of the stone had visibly reduced in size with a small pile of loose sand surrounding it.  I finished my meditation with a request to my unconscious mind to continue peeling away grains of sand from the stone.  Then I put the stone out of my mind and carried on with my life.  Each time I became aware of my condition, I imagined the stone shrinking and became smaller in size.

The months passed and finally my turn came for the lithotripsy treatment. Before the procedure, my doctor did another x-ray of that area to see the size and location of the kidney stone. Upon examining the x-ray, my doctor was amazed to find no trace of the marble size stone that had existed just months before.  Since there was no visual evidence of the kidney stone he removed the tube from my urinary track (with more than a small amount of discomfort I will add!)

That evening I experienced the worst pain of my life.  I needed to urinate but my urinary track was somehow plugged.  After what seemed like an eternity (about 1 hour) I felt something let go and start moving inside me.  I urinated into a cup and finally I passed a small black colored stone less than 1/8” in diameter. I was relieved to say the least!

I took the stone to my next appointment and showed the doctor what had been inside my kidney. He examined the stone, which was too small to appear on the x-ray. He said this type of stone was actually so hard that the lithotripsy treatment would have been ineffective in breaking up the stone.

I certainly believe my visualization had been effective enough to reduce the stone to a manageable size.  I did experience a short period of pain and discomfort. I think the pain was a reminder to watch my diet during the hot weather. Had the stone remained its original size the alternative would have been far worse, as I would have required surgery.  It has been twenty-five years since that summer and I have been free of kidney stones ever since.

Energetic visualization, applied in a positive manner can be a powerful aid to eliminating many diseases, both physical and emotional.  If you don’t like the picture, simply replace it with one you do like!
