Have you ever considered the sun or the earth spiritual energy. The energy that nourishes our higher self, our spirit, soul, and higher-self or divine force. In Chinese cultures, this is chi or qi and other cultures ki, prana, chakras and kundli. As spiritual beings with a body and mind, we have a life force made of electromagnetic energy or energy that cannot even be measured or explained. Even our thoughts help create our reality through emotions.
Sunlight is something we cannot live without. Light is the food for all life on earth. The human body, according to the doctrine of chromotherapy, is basically composed of colors. Insufficient sunlight will result in low Vitamin D deficiencies, leading to the development of prostate and breast cancer, memory loss, and an increased risk for developing dementia and schizophrenia. We have been told to wear sunscreen to protect ourselves but what is really happening? We are light beings with chakras and the energy of the sun has the colors of the rainbow. Every creature and plant on earth is engulfed in light that affects its health conditions.
Grounding as we all know when we go to the bench improves sleep and reduces stress. When I go barefoot, I am more relaxed and have a feeling of connection to the earth. Grounding is bare skin to the earth and performing Chi gong or any meditative practice outside barefoot is an excellent way to cultivate energy as well connect to mother nature. We all wear shoes and that prevents us from getting the benefits from the earth. Grounding is a simple way to prevent and help inflammation with these techniques.
Qigong or chi gong. My first experience with qigong was in 2012 when my brother was diagnosed with cancer. We found Master Kim, a former martial arts expert who was also an acupuncturist and taught qigong. I learned qigong was a slow meditative movement cultivating qi throughout the body. Being westerners we were a little slow in learning the process but we did learn still practice today. My brother had surgery and with the excellent care his wife provided with essential oils and diet he is cancer free today.
Meditation and prayer. My brother’s experience with cancer led me to wanting a deeper understanding of meditation. I studied various meditative methods, mindfulness, meditation at Buddhist temple and even mantras by a Buddhist priest. I took a course titled, The Spiritual Brain: Science and Religion experience by Dr. Andrew Newberg. I learned of a 12 minute exercise, called the Kirtan Kriya is a type of meditation practiced daily for 8 weeks will improve cognition and activate parts of the brain that are central to memory.
Emotions control who we are and what be become. Paracelsus, Father of Modern Medicine said “The spirit is the master, imagination the tool, and the body the plastic material . . . The power of the imagination is a great factor in medicine. It may produce diseases in man and in animals, and it may cure them . .. Ills of the body may be cured by remedies or by the power of the spirit acting through the soul.”
We live in a world of distractions. Fear, anger, greed but love is the one emotion that would overcome all. It is also the most difficult to understand fully and certainly the most difficult to achieve. Jesus said love your neighbor as you love yourself. According to the Law of One, our purpose on earth is to learn how to love and be of services to others. A world where everyone love one another as Jesus said, would heal the world.
