How To Consciously Create Spiritually Aligned Abundance & Wealth

Abundance, like age, is a state of mind.  Too often, it is thought to be limited to the digits describing one’s material wealth. 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

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.

How Sound Affects Human Consciousness and Health

The Dharma Of Sound Healing

By Diane Mandle | Sound Energy Healing

Music has always been recognized as having a powerful effect on human consciousness. But in the past few years, there has been more research into the science of sound, and how it can be used to improve our lives. We are learning why different kinds of music and sounds have the effects that they do on the body, emotions, mind, and spirit. Science tells us that all life is energy in one form or another. Further, this energy is eternal, changing and morphing from one shape or form to another. Each ‘energy shape’ has its own particular pattern of frequencies, or vibrations. When one form experiences a matching frequency in the form of a musical note, the form will begin to vibrate in sympathy with the note in sympathetic resonance. A strong enough vibration can even cause a form to restructure itself, as has been noted with cancer cells, crystal glasses, water crystals etc. 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.

Stop Looking For Signs From The Universe

By:  Stephanie Zamora

Signs and messages from the Universe are everywhere, it’s true. But when you’re seeking answers and guidance, “looking” for signs from the universe is not the answer. Being open, listening and feeling for the answers and guidance, that’s what you need to do. Read more of this post

Human Interaction & Metaphysical Karma

The word Karma gets thrown around a lot in society today.  There are lots of people who say that they don’t believe in it, and from my own experiences, these are usually not the best people to hang out with.  Read more of this post

What is Your Ultimate Message to The Universe?

At 24 years of age, I can say that I have experienced a lot of ups and downs, much like every other person I know. It has taken plenty of time, effort, and experimenting, but I have learned how to maximize the positives in my life while also being able to simultaneously consciously ignore any perceived negative external influence. Having reached this stage in my temporary, yet abundant life, I find it crucial to share my feelings with everyone I come into contact with. I hope that they choose to do the same, and I have trouble seeing why the would not want to. Everyone benefits in the end game, teaching awareness is the least selfish endeavor available to mankind. My ultimate message that I find a desperate need to share with the universe at large is simply: radiate, receive, and share positive energy unconditionally. Read more of this post

Brain Files: Why Meditation Feels Sooo Good

The brain is a magical tool that enables us to access different parts of our psyche, different states of consciousness, and experience the world around us. In any given moment (waking) our brains are processing thousands and thousands of elements in our environment. This constant processing lends our brains to an immense amount of stress. But through meditation we can resolve this stress allowing for this processing to increase agility.

Your brain functions on four different wave frequencies, they are:

This means that we have several levels of functioning outside of the normal Beta state, which is how most people think of our brain as a whole. Furthermore, we can be conscious during each stage of these brain wave changes. This is done through meditational practice and sleep studies.

Buddhist monks have meditated for thousands of years, exploring these subtle realms of the brain. They’re extremely familiar with positive effect of meditation, including the way it works to instill the inner strength and insight needed for spiritual practices; meditation, or “sitting,” is to a Buddhist monk as to what prayer is to Christians, or even pre-game is to a football player. But instead of trying to self talk your way into a peaceful state of being, monks know the value of just letting things be as they are. This is the first key in achieving conscious awareness during one of these states. You must let your ego (sense of self) and other thoughts fade into silence. What happens next might surprise you.

Neuroscientists observing MRI scans have learned that with a meditation practice strength in the brain is achieved by reinforcing the connections between brain cells. In a recent 2012 study showed that people who meditate exhibit higher levels of gyrification — the “folding” of the cerebral cortex as a result of growth. The scientists suspect that gyrification is responsible for making the brain better at processing information, making decisions, forming memories, and improving attention. What this also does is confirm the argument regarding that meditation aids in the individuals ability to cope with stressors. Excitingly, science has now proven the validity of mediation in neuroplasticity.

When relating to the actual activity of brain wave function during meditation, study results have been linked to dramatic and positive changes in electrical brain activity, namely increased Theta and Alpha EEG activity, which is associated with wakeful and relaxed attention. These two states are most desired but the hardest to achieve due to our over-chattering of internal mental noise. In order to achieve levels of conscious Theta waves we must first learn how to navigate in silence. This doesn’t mean in the absence of noise, but rather that there is internal mental stillness. Once we have mastered in entry point and technique that helps us to achieve stillness, we can then venture in deeper to deeper Theta and Delta waves.

A very interesting  study from earlier this year showcased that meditators have a different expression of brain metabolites than healthy non-meditators, specifically those metabolites linked to anxiety and depression. This is very interesting considering how often we actually take time to sit in silence. The drug industry would be in trouble if we all starting sitting in silence for 30 minutes every morning – is it that simple?  Yes, it is that simple. As you sit in silence, your brain activity will start to calm. As it calms your level of operating brain wave will shift lower and lower, depending on your level of skill. And your level of shill is based on your ability to descend into stillness itself.

When you lower your brain waves via meditation you feel more relaxed and centered. This keeps us on track and refreshed. In fact, many have said that after a meditation session they feel as though they have slept for 8 hours. This is why meditation feels SOOO good! It’s because have let ourselves go into the vastness of stillness, allowing our brain to function on lower fluctuating wave frequencies, i.e. your brain relaxes.

Take time each day to try to reach the state of Alpha brain wave. You will know you have reached it when the wondering of your mind has ceased. Don’t try to force it, just let your thought be as they are. For the more you try to push them away the more they will solidify. Allow your thoughts to come and go, establishing a firm root in stillness. Look and “Listen” for silence. That will help your mind quiet. As they say, “seek and you will find…”
