The Esoteric Meaning of Mystical Symbols & The Benefits of Sacred Geometry

By: David Weitzman

As plainly as it can be stated, geometry is a branch of mathematics. It is generally described as the study of shapes and patterns and their sizes and positions.  For the majority of us, geometry is something we learn while in school only to be forgotten soon after.

What then is Sacred Geometry?

When did “sacred” enter into the picture? 

Sacred means something holy or connected to “God”, and just when is any lowly geometric shape ever sacred? To the uninitiated, the very idea may be totally absurd. Sacred Geometry after all is a kind of philosophy not very many people can easily wrap their minds around especially when contemplating about it for the first time. Read more of this post

The 4 Keys to Effortless Manifestation

HJ: If manifestation is not effortless for you, you are doing it the hard way.  You see, when we remove whatever is blocking us from realizing and effortlessly manifesting our needs and desires, it begins to happen at the mere whim of a thought.  Many people do experience this, but the truth is, most do not.  So what is the difference between these two groups?  One has removed their attachments and subconscious emotional blockages to the degree necessary to experience this reality and the other has not yet reached that level.  It’s that simple.

You see, when people first learn about the principle of manifestation or the law of attraction, they naturally begin employing the techniques wherever they are at on a spiritual, emotional and mental level at that moment, which, for most people is not the level where effortless manifestation occurs.  In almost every case, inner work must be done to release the power of manifestation — essentially, to remove whatever is blocking it from becoming actualized in your current belief, thought and mental and emotional structures.  Without doing this, you are destined to fail because you will continually sabotage yourself unwittingly.  Sure, you might have some limited success, but the kind of life-changing creation of abundance, happiness, love, health and actualization most are seeking remains elusive and just out of reach.

Now, tapping into your true manifestation abilities is as simple as following the four steps below, however, if you have strong subconscious blockages, you will need to work on those concurrently or you will only get a fraction of the results you are intending. Read more of this post

How to Upgrade Your Genetic Code

HJ: Your genetic code is not set in stone at birth.  Researchers are now discovering that it responds dynamically to your thoughts and beliefs.  Therefore, it is absolutely possible to upgrade your genetic code by getting a handle on these aspects of yourself.

In every sense, we are now entering the age of the mind, sparked in part by the rapidly expanding and revolutionary field of neuroscience, which is proving many of the new age concept long-held suspect by many in the mainstream scientific community.  By studying the mind-body interaction more closely and with the incredible technologies now at our disposal, it is quickly becoming clear that the mind and body are very closely interrelated and have a massive influence on each other.

But what’s more is that by understanding this relationship, we can effectively manipulate it to accomplish incredible things, like healing ourselves physical and actually changing, or rather upgrading, our genetic code. Read more of this post

How the Universe Responds to Your Energetic Vibration

HJ: The universe is not static — it is dynamically responding to your every thought and emotion, the combination of which is known as your energetic vibration.  Despite what mainstream science might have you believe, we actually live in an intelligent, aware universe that is literally programmed to be a mirror of our the content of our mind and the vibration of our emotional state.

Many of you are likely familiar with the Law of Attraction, which is but one of many universal laws (like gravity and the laws of phsyics in a certain sense) that govern our existence.  The Law of Attraction is in large part responsive directly to your personal vibration.  If it is not clear to you how this is so, then you are in for a treat, because the article below outlines the mechanism of how this operates.  And, for that matter, how other aspects of our lives and the universe also respond to our unique energetic vibration.

Understanding the larger framework of how this occurs is extremely important for getting a handle on your own vibration so that you can adjust it to begin creating and attracting that which you wish to be your life experience.

This entire article touches on one of the main points that all people on the conscious path must eventually understand: that life is not happening to us, but being co-created by us.  The idea of energetic vibration helps us to understand how this operates and begin our path to mastery.

This is a fantastic article by Ken and we sincerely hope it helps you, where ever you are at on the path. Read more of this post

The Holy Trinity of Mysticism

I have chosen to preface this article with a short paragraph that I wrote years ago after a deep meditation. I came out of it, went straight to my computer, and wrote this out word for word as you see it now in less than a minute.

“The universe sprang forth through a cosmic outpouring of energy from a single, non-existent point derived in void. This outpouring was nothing more or less than the One Thing opening its eye to observe itself. Past and future are false concepts, for only this one moment exists always present. After the One Thing has finished observing itself in this moment, it will collapse in on itself, and fall back to the void from which it was first issued forth. This process repeats for infinity with no beginning or end.” Read more of this post

Stunning Visual Map of How Emotions Are Experienced in The Body

HJ:  Have you ever noticed that you feel specific emotions in different parts of your body? A team of Finnish researchers has created an innovative visual map that shows how different ares of our body are stimulated by different emotions, adding further proof to the growing realization that there is a very real, direct link between the body and the mind.  So much so that scientists are now able to measure the level of impact that provoked emotional responses have on specific areas of the body.  These findings could have major implications for understanding and diagnosing disease states and also creating therapies and treatments to heal them.  Furthermore, for individuals interested in exploring the connection between the mind and body, this incredibly detailed visualization will likely provide many insights into the complex relationship between the two.

How Your Thoughts and Beliefs Change Your Genes

HJ: The ability of thoughts and beliefs to change your genes has recently gained credibility in the eyes of science as researchers begin to more deeply understand the relationship between the mind and body. Despite the fact that the idea had largely been written off by many in the halls of academia as ‘spiritualist nonsense’, the concept stuck and now groundbreaking research is beginning to confirm what many already knew through direct experience. Our thoughts and beliefs have a very real, measurable influence on our genes.

The understanding of this relationship is still in its infancy in scientific communities and is perhaps too complex to ever be fully understood. However, the fact of the matter is that a direct cause and effect relationship has been established, proving once and for all that the old adage ‘mind over matter’ is not just philosophical theory, but actually very tangibly true and the key to unlocking great personal power.

6 Powerful Techniques for Developing Your Intuition

HJ: Developing your intuition is more a process of rediscovery than anything else and that is because your intuition is an immutable part of your being that cannot be destroyed or lost.  We are all born with strong inner connection to our intuitive senses but as we grow older we typically surpress or ignore these messages in favor of logical/rational thinking.  This is reinforced by a society which generally places little value on intuition, thinking it is nothing more than a crude emotional reaction to external stimuli, which could not be further from the truth.

Intuition is actually vastly more powerful, accurate and complex than rational/logical thinking, which is highly limited by the belief structure of ones mind.  Intuition, on the other hand, taps into a larger, multidimensional field of awareness/knowledge to give us highly specific guidance as to what is best for us at any given moment.  It can see into the future and guide us to avoid calamities or towards those things which further our personal development and dreams.  However, in order to take full advantage of this incredible skill we all posses, we must trust it deeply.  Doubt is the enemy of intuition and it the single biggest hurdle we must overcome when learning to embrace and trust our inner guidance.

The article below presents you with six powerful techniques for developing your intuition and successfully overcoming any lingering doubt and distrust that may be holding you back from accessing its full potential. Read more of this post

Healing Your Chakra System: A Complete Guide to the Emotional, Physical, and Spiritual Aspects of The Chakras

HJ: The development of your Chakra System directly relates to your level of consciousness and is not necessarily linear, meaning you can have partially developed/opened/blocked chakras. If, for example, you are generally operating at a high level of consciousness but have self expression issues, your throat chakra can be partially blocked while the third eye and crown may be much more fully open/active. The chakras are also dynamic, meaning that they can change over time moving from blocked to open and blocked again as one has various experiences that effect the self emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.

A common mistake people make is focusing only on the physical aspects of healing the chakras.  While this is certainly important, it is really only one layer of 4 main layers (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual) that affect each chakra.  Always remember that energy moves downward from the spiritual realms into the mental, emotional, and ultimately physical experience, so dealing with spiritual issues has powerful effects that echo throughout the other aspects of the self.  From this context one can see the fallacy of focusing solely on the physical aspects of the self and chakra system.  However, as we primarily identify with the physical, this is usually seen to be the cause of and solution to many problems that are actually spiritual, mental or emotional in nature.  So it is with the chakras.  They are the interface between the higher etheric, spiritual realms and the physical body.

As always, do the internal spiritual, mental and emotional work and everything will naturally sort itself out.  In this sense, working with the chakras offers an amazing innate bio-feedback mechanism to help one identify what areas of their own consciousness need the most attention and work.  Understanding the chakra system will give you a roadmap for how various mental, emotional, physical and spiritual issues and imbalances (as well as those things that are in balance) manifest in the body, allowing you to better understand how to approach the healing of your mind body spirit triad.

The Flow of Consciousness

One of the most important aspects of living a positive enriching life is to achieve a state of flow. A state of flow entails that you are completely immersed in your craft and task at hand.

How to Assume Leadership of Your Own Life

Can anyone tell me who is leading my life?

It’s certainly not my friends, my parents, or the officials at the top of the government and the world at large. It’s ultimately me who runs my life. While I might have some help and positive feedback along the way, I must discover the path myself. I must keep an open mind and think about what I truly value in life.

At this stage in my life, what I truly value is friendship and experience. While I like to enjoy some material goods at times, I make sure I don’t fall into the trap of materialism. I would much rather spend my money on having fun experiences with friends than having the “coolest car” on the block. Cars are replaceable, friends and experiences are irreplaceable. I can fix my car, but I can never fix missing an opportunity with my friends to have a fun experience, those are irreplaceable. Read more of this post

How Stepping Into The Flow Will Help You Stop Struggling in Life

HJ: Pushing harder only makes things harder.  Struggle engenders more struggle, as per the law of attraction.  I wan’t to let you in on a big secret: life can be as easy as you want it to be.  We have been taught that struggle is not just necessary, but a fact of life.  We believe this collectively and so it begins to form our reality. We need to learn that stepping into the flow is essential for our conscious growth. Beliefs held by large groups of people create very strong realities which can be difficult to disconnect from, especially if we do not yet have a firm spiritual understanding and grounding.  It doesn’t have to be this way.  You can choose (whenever you are ready) to disconnect permanently from struggle and step into ease — also known as the flow.

The flow is what it feels like to live in harmony with your life purpose and the natural rhythms of the universe.  Everything you need comes to you at the perfect moment and you always find yourself exactly where you need to be, when you need to be there.  It takes great trust, but that’s about it. You don’t have to do anything, which is exactly what this article is about — relaxing into the flow… because it really is that easy… Read more of this post

9 Easy Ways To Tap Into Your Inner Spiritual Warrior

By Elana Miller, M.D.Zen Psychiatry

Only as a spiritual warrior can one withstand the path of knowledge. A warrior cannot complain or regret anything. His life is an endless challenge and challenges cannot possibly be good or bad. Challenges are simply challenges. The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge, while an ordinary man takes everything as a blessing or a curse. — Don Juan, as quoted by Jack Kornfield in A Path With Heart.

The Self Cleaning Brain

Evolutionary psychiatry, as a practical matter, is a way of applying evolutionary theory to the practice of medicine in order to elucidate low-risk, holistic, and effective ways to improve and prevent common modern mental health conditions. Though we are born with certain genes, temperaments, and can’t always prevent neglect, abuse, and trauma as we develop, there are many ways in which we can alter our environments and habits to more closely emulate the evolutionary past. One of the most important interventions I use as a practicing psychiatrist is to try to improve sleep quality. Read more of this post

The Field: How to Access The Wisdom of The Collective Consciousness

HJ: The truth is that we are all tapping into the collective consciousness rather frequently without actually being aware of it.  The process of becoming aware, however, makes quite a bit of difference and allows us to get the most out of this ability and begin to cultivate it rather than experiencing it haphazardly.  This often leads us to become closer to others and strengthen bonds and relationships, ultimately bringing greater happiness and fulfillment into our lives.

Furthermore, the existence of a field of collective consciousness is a useful paradigm from which to view events in the world and in your life.  It offers many answers to seemingly paradoxical questions as it helps to explain human behavior and societal organization.

From our vantage point, this innate connection between all beings helps to re-establish the truth that there is much more going on than meets the eye at any given time, far beyond the understanding of modern science.  This reignites the mystical wonder that helps us become curious and passionate about life outside the confines of the sometimes overbearing, mechanistic worldview that we are constantly presented with by mainstream media and society at large.

This is an excellent primer and thought piece on collective consciousness that we truly hope you will enjoy. Read more of this post
