What is a Spiritual Awakening?

Spirituality, Meditation, Mindfulness and Energy Healing

The following is an excerpt from my online course, Guided Meditations for Spiritual Awakening. Releases July 30, 2018.

Meditation Goes to a Whole New Level

In my previous courses, I’ve introduced meditation as a tool for relaxation and healing, which it is.  However, now I’d like to introduce meditation as a means to spiritual awakening.

This is where meditation can create experiences that are incredible, wild, unpredictable, surreal, outlandish, magical, miraculous, and flat-out fun!  This is where meditation comes alive.  And for me, that’s what it’s all about.

What is a Spiritual Awakening?

Historically, a spiritual awakening refers to a shift in consciousness, or an awakening to an awareness of reality, which has been previously unrealized. Often, the results lead to the recognition of oneness with all that is.

The essence of that oneness, which binds us all together, is a form of universal energy. That energy can be experienced and integrated into our being.

Spiritual Awakening Is an Event

What does that actually mean? It means your life has just changed … big time.

What you’ve experienced will allow you to see the world as you’ve never seen it before. Your perception of what life is and how the world functions will expand into vast new realms and possibilities, that stretch far beyond the physical world. Life can get very dynamic and exciting.

You may have visions or exceptional sensory experiences. A spiritual awakening may also go on for a period of time. But whatever the circumstance, you are getting re-wired to connect with a highly intelligent energy presence that is much larger than you are. You will not be the same person afterward. You’ll be even better.

Spiritual Awakening Is Personal

There are as many different ways to experience a spiritual awakening as there are people experiencing them. Each one is tailored by a higher intelligence to optimize whatever experience is needed. Plus, it can happen more than once in a lifetime. One thing is for sure, it won’t be boring.

Disclaimer – Neither of Us can Make a Spiritual Awakening Happen

Spiritual awakenings are born of a higher intelligence. Call it God, the Divine, the Universe, Collective Consciousness, or whatever you want  It is this presence that makes it all happen. All we can do is set the vibrational stage. However, here are a few tricks that have withstood the test of time.

Desire

If you want a spiritual awakening to happen and take some action, it will. The energy in charge will answer your prayers, in it’s own time and in its own way.

Remember, it’ all about personal growth, so be willing to make some effort. You may have some healing or maturing to do. Also, keep in the back of your mind, it won’t happen the way you think it will.

Meditation

Meditation creates a bio-chemical change in the brain that’s very healthy. It  also paves the way for a spiritual awakening, by aligning your personal energy with the energy that makes it happen. Meditation works as a divine invitation to that source, set by the tone of dissolving your own inner resistance.

The Living of Virtues

Virtues are human behavior qualities that boost the experience of life.  They are portals that raise personal vibration

Like meditation, when virtues are put into action, they set the energetic stage for a spiritual awakening.  Virtues we’ll be focusing on in this course will include compassion, self-acceptance / self-forgiveness, forgiveness and gratitude.

What are Some Results from a Spiritual Awakening?

As I mentioned before, a spiritual awakening will be an event you will not likely forget. Below are a few things that may happen after the spiritual in has occurred.

  • You feel like something has happened inside of you
  • Your life goes through a significant change
  • Synchronisities and coincidences happen regularly
  • You long for connection and meaning
  • You want to know who you are

Meditation and Money – How Does that Work?

Spirituality, Meditation, Mindfulness and Energy Healing

The following is an excerpt from my online course, Guided Meditation – The Ultimate Introduction for Beginners.

The Power of Money

Energy flows where attention goes.  That applies to every area of life, especially money.  For most of us, making money requires a certain amount of focus and energy expenditure.  Part of being human means to be enterprising.

However, many of us have issues with money.  That’s because money strikes a chord to the very center of our being.  We all need it, most of us want it, and we’re all profoundly effected by the thought of it.  From the wealthiest of kings to the poorest of beggars, no one is untouched by the power of money.  Money has impacted the decisions and behavior of people since people have existed.  It’s influence is universal and timeless.

Money and Emotions

The reason money has such as powerful effect on us all is that it stirs deep emotions, central to our being.  Because money is attached to our core need for survival, the thought of its lack trigger very powerful fear.  Insecurities can rise so strong it can bring out our dark side.

The other emotion commonly associated with money is greed.  Once someone gets a taste of it, it can trigger an insatiable desire for more.   That’s because money can entice  the desire for power and shape the entire identity of some people.

Money is an Tool

Why is it then, money can bring out they tyrant in some and the humanitarian in others?  That’s because money is a neutral form of energy.  It’s  not good or bad.  It just is.  It represents the exchange of life force between people.  Money only makes people more of what they already are.

Foundational Experiences and Beliefs

The natural state of the Universe is abundance.  Just look around.  Earth is overflowing with life.  The night sky is  filled with countless stars and galaxies.  Abundance is everywhere.  Thew why do so many of us struggle with money?

One reason is related to our foundational experiences with money.  These can be very similar to suppressed emotion we discussed earlier in this course.  Our first defining experiences with money can shape our perceptions and relationship with money for the rest of our lives.  These foundational experiences can happen any time in life.

Underlying believes with money also impact our relationship with money.  Many of us may not even be aware of our beliefs about money.  However, with a little awareness, you can recognize them expressed as a statement of truth.  (i.e. hard work always pays off, money is the root to all evil, I am a money magnet).  To enhance your relationship with money, it’s a good idea to discover your beliefs and change them where necessary.

Personal Vibration with Money

We are not all destined to be the richest people in the world.  However, we all resonate at a particular comfort level with money.  How we think and feel about money will be reflected back to use in our lives.  In order to optimize your relationship with money it’s best to release limiting foundational experiences & believes.  This is were meditation can have a healing effect on our financial situation.

FAQ

Can I just meditate and get rich?

For most people it’s not that simple.  Releasing limiting foundational experiences and altering restrictive beliefs can begin the process of opening the gates of financial flow into your life.  However, life will most likely require you to participate.

My family has always been poor.  Is there anyway out?

Very possible.  Again, releasing limiting foundational experiences and changing restrictive beliefs can open financial flow.  Also, in this day and age, the internet has opened opportunities beyond limiting cultural restriction, availing itself to the synchronicity that meditation can provide.

Can Meditation Help Fear and Anxiety?

Spirituality, Meditation, Mindfulness and Energy Healing

The following is an excerpt from my online course, Guided Meditations for Stress, Anger, Anxiety, and Distraction

Is it Okay to Be Afraid?

Absolutely.  Fear is natural.  It’s ingrained into our DNA.  It’s a survival instinct.  When you’re threatened and your life is in danger, you have two choices to ensure your survival.  Depending on your internal make up you will fight in anger or take flight in fear.

The only problem is, what most of our fear is not a response from a threat to our survival.  It comes from somewhere else—somewhere inside.

Where Does Most Fear Come From?

Most of our fear is based on some negative experience we’ve had in the past.  It can be as simple as being yelled at by a parent or the full-blown trauma from the horrors of war.  Depending on your sensitivity, being yelled at by a parent can leave scars not far removed from someone else who has been in actual combat.

However, when fear follows a person around long after the event is over, the mechanics of what’s going on are similar for everyone.  The event is over but the fear remains.  How can that be?

How Does Fear Work?

Fear, like all of our emotions, is born to be experienced.  When it is, it dissolves and goes away.  However, nobody wants to experience fear or horror,  so it unintentionally gets suppressed into the subconscious mind.

However, once fear gets stuffed into the subconscious, it lies there like a living creature, waiting to be released.  Fear will then try and find its way out to be experienced, so it can complete its life cycle.  So what you will see is fearful experiences coming up over and over again.  The patterns of fear will repeat in an endless cycle.

Is Fear Even Real?

It’s important to understand that fear and trauma are based in the past, and technically are not real.  Fear is just a smokescreen, created by past events that  no longer exist.  And often those fears from the past get projected into the future, creating a future reality based in fear.

Most fear is generated from mental pictures and emotions attached to past circumstances.  However, the power of those pictures and feelings can be so strong and ingrained that it may have a powerful influence on our decision making and behavior.  And lets face it, breaking the cycle takes an enormous amount of courage because nobody want to face their fear.

Therein lies the paradox because to overcome your fear, you must be willing to face it completely.  And it’s not as hard as it sounds.

How can Meditation Help?

Meditation is absolutely brilliant in helping quell the demons of fear.  First off, meditation will slow an overactive mind to create an emotional state of peace.  Fear has a difficult time standing up in the face of peace.

Furthermore, there are a myriad of meditation techniques to effortlessly address fear from the past and let it go.  The result can be create a permanent sense of deep relief.

If you feel the time is ready to release fear from the past, I strongly encourage you to find assistance in the process, from someone like an energy healer or mediation therapist.  Having loving assistance can amplify the likelihood of success exponentially.  Some of the most difficult time in our lives are when we forget or neglect of ask for help.

Remember, when meditation helps you release fear, the result is feelings of security and peace.  When security and peace are fortified in your internal world, it will be reflected into your out world, as a life filled with the same.

A Mind Blowing Spiritual Awakening – Tony Robbins meets Oneness University, Part 3 of 5

Spirituality, Meditation, Mindfulness and Healing

Part 1  Part 2  Part 3  Part 4  Part 5

Taken from modified excerpts of my book:

The Subconscious, the Divine and Me

 

The_Point_(Fiji)

In 2008-09, I had two mind blowing spiritual awakening weeks through Oneness University , that changed my life  forever.

So far our champion of the last two blogs has been pummeled by two massive Divine downloads through the image of Tony Robbins during a retreat put on by Oneness University in Fiji.  He had no idea what was going on.  Let’s see how the Divine pulls the rug out from under him this time.

The afternoons of the retreat were scheduled with classes.  One of the teachers was a thirty-something gentleman from India by the name of Ananda Giri.  He was kind of  a modern-day guru.  Because he was busy and lived far away, his lessons were given via video.  He spoke in a rather hypnotic cadence and his eyes glazed over when he paused.  He seemed as if he was plugged into an energy most of us could only dream about.  Carrying the qualities of peace and innocence, he was loved by everyone.  It was impossible not to.

On the last full day of the retreat, I wandered down to the beach for a stroll and some alone time.  As I stepped from the path onto the beach, I distinctly heard someone call my name.  I turned around and didn’t see anyone.  So I kept walking.  After a few more steps, I heard my name again, this time loud and clear.  Nobody was there!  Remembering I was on a retreat, I figured, “Okay, it’s in my imagination.”  As I closed my eyes, I could see him there plain as day.  It was Ananda Giri.  By this time, I was starting to feel like I was losing my grip on reality.

Walking down the beach, we carried on a conversation that lasted about thirty minutes.  He was very explicit and told me what I could expect over the next six months.  It felt like being with an old and dear friend.  As we came to the end of the beach, he stood aside with an impish grin, as if he knew something.  In a few seconds, guess who came walking down the beach?  You guessed it, Tony Robbins.  Keep in mind, this encounter on the beach was happening in my imagination.  However, the events were so lucid it was hard to distinguish between the imaginary and the physical world.

Seeing Tony walk toward me, in a no non-sense militaristic fashion, set off a tingle of fear down my spine.  He was here on business and his business was with me.  Off to the side, the guru was watching, trying not to laugh.  Tony approached face-on and stopped about an arm’s length away and roared, “You just don’t get it, do you?”  As he said that, he smacked me on the chest with his open palm.  I could feel the blow physically and was knocked back a step.  This was getting bizarre.

Replying to his question, I imagined myself answering, “Uh…get what?”  He responded, “Don’t resist.”  I said, “Resist what?”  With that answer, he wound up to hit me again.  Instead of feeling his open palm slam into my chest, it passed right through into my torso.  It felt extremely peculiar and downright mind-boggling.  I could feel him reaching inside my body.  He seemed to enjoy it.  He kept pressing his hand form the surface to the inside of my body like he was testing something.  With a growing smile, he said, “That’s it, you’re getting it.”  On the next attempt to press into my chest, his entire arm entered my heart.   At the same time, he did a kind of pirouette and completely entered my upper body, dissolving into my core.  I looked over toward Ananda Giri for some kind of explanation.  He was gone.  I was stupefied.

Download number three…

At this point I figured I was completely losing my mind.  To find out if I do, check in on my next blog.

How to Discover the ‘Magic’ of Energy Healing

Spirituality, Meditation, Mindfulness and Energy Healing

I’ve been working in the world of energy healing for decades.  Over the years, I get inquires like the one I received recently.

Energy Healing

It went something like this:

“I have been getting energy healings from lots of people in the past but what struck me was that there was one thing that was unique on your site as compared to others, i.e. ‘permanent results’.  I hope it is true, and if so, please confirm so that I can start sessions with you.  I’m much in need of a miracle.”

Awakening

I responded:

“Thanks for you inquiry.  I have 25 years experience as an energy healer and spent six of those years working in a cancer radiation clinic.  Clients I have worked with who have experienced ‘permanent results’ are people who are deeply committed to their own healing process and education in self-awareness.  In short, they are open to doing what ever it takes to improve the quality of their lives.  This is a critical and necessary component to healing.

“Why?  Because I do not do the healing.  I only facilitate a process to help people access the deeper parts of themselves to do their own healing.  Although miracles can and do happen, there are generally no quick fixes or magical cures.  Healing tends to be gradational, through the effort of reaching deep inside yourself.  I can assist you in that process.

“So if you want to work with me, think it over.  I am focused on results but only if you’re willing to put in the work.  Thanks so much for contacting me.”

tranquility

Like so many of us, my friend above sees energy healing as something shrouded in a magical cloak of mystery.  I think that happens because we don’t fully understand it yet.  But we’re getting there.  As forge ahead and come to a deeper understanding of our energetic natures, we’ll begin to understand the ‘miraculous’ in a different light.  We’ll see miracles as a natural part of being human (homework and all).

Can War Be Genetically Inherited?

Letter head

Spirituality, Meditation, Mindfulness and Energy Healing

As within, so without.  Or so the saying goes.

The idea behind this well-known spiritual saying suggests that whatever lives in our subconscious mind will be projected outward.  In other words, our internal thoughts and emotions create the circumstancesFotolia_91791713_XS-300x200 in our 3D, day-to-day, physical world.

Nothing is more true than suppressed anger, hatred and rage.  When we experience trauma, especially when we’re young, we unknowingly stuff it into the subconscious mind.  There it lies dormant, like a sleeping dragon, waiting to be thrust outward at the right moment.  Combine that potential with other like-minded souls, and before you know it, the match has been set to the gasoline of the next violent and turbulent outburst.

So, the theory to prevent war would be: First, heal the conflict and hatred that lies within.

Sounds simple.  No more inner conflict, no more war.

But what if hatred runs even deeper than mere suppressed trauma from childhood?  Can hatred, and its propensity toward war, actually be genetically inherited from our ancestors?

This brings me to an old acquaintance of mine, named Aaron.  We were biology lab partners in college.  We hit it off from the time we first shook hands.  He was handsome, intelligent, sophisticated, gracious and fun.  He was also Jewish.

One afternoon, we had a break from our biology lab and went out to grab a bite to eat. Somehow or another, we got on the topic of the latest militant outbreak occurring in the Middle East.  As we spoke, Aaron’s neck swelled up, his veins protruded, his face went beet-red, and his reddening eyes dilated.  In no time flat,  he became almost uncontrollably agitated.

I was mildly horrified to see my lab buddy morph into a completely different person, right before my eyes.  The rage he was experiencing didn’t fit the context of our conversation.  It was way off the chart.  What was even more bizarre was I was fairly certain Aaron was raised as a normal American kid.  He didn’t even know anyone of Arab origin.

Being somewhat perceptive for my young age, I figured hatred of that magnitude could only come from one of two places.  A)  He learned it while growing up; or B) he was born with it, as if it were hardwired into his psyche.

I knew Aaron’s family.  They were kind, civically-minded people.  I couldn’t fathom Aaron being raised in a den of hatred.  It would have shown somewhere on the outside.  My only reasonable conclusion was to consider option B.  He inherited it from his ancestry.

My interactions with Aaron gave me a whole new appreciation of a hatred that seemed absolutely biblical.  My naive and isolated American upbringing couldn’t come to grips with that unstoppable force, which seemed to have originated thousands of years before our time.  I simply couldn’t comprehend it.

Later, Aaron’s hatred made me wonder if preventing war, by healing our inner emotional states, was even a remote possibility.  Quite honestly, to me, it seemed more like wishful thinking than a realistic possibility.  I couldn’t imagine how anyone could stop a group of focused and like-minded Aarons.

Over the years, I’ve thought a lot about Aaron and the history of our world, that’s always been in a state of war.  In these times of great change, will we ever be able to overcome war and violent conflict?  Quite honestly, I don’t think there’s enough human awareness, intention, or will to pull it off.  Cessation of war will have to come from a much higher and intelligent source of power.  It’s going to take a heaping portion of Divine intervention.

So what’s my recommendation to create peace in a world ever troubled with war?

Keep meditating and connecting to your version of Divine presence.  It’s going to take a miracle.  But thank God, that’s what God is in the business of.
