Today I want to get a little autobiographical with ya’ll. In the 60s we were hearing about good vibes, flower power, energy fields, sacred power point, Age of Aquarius, etc, etc. To me this was all a bunch of hippy dippy feel good bull shit. Partly because I was limited by my own lack of knowledge about physical science and partly it was the inability of science to substantiate many of these theories.
As I moved into my teens and learned about rudimentary science I was able to rationalize some of this stuff. Everything which exists is comprised of molecules, various molecules combine in particular combinations and become a particular substance, example…H2O …hydrogen combines with oxygen (I know one element has 2 parts to the other elements 1 part, but don’t ask me which is which LOL). And we learned that molecules are in motion… vibrating. When cooled molecules vibrate more slowly, the space in between becomes smaller until the water turns from a fluid to a solid (ice). If the water is heated the molecules vibrate more quickly pushing away from each other turning from liquid to gas (steam) and if the steam is not collected (by re cooling) the molecules will dissipate completely. That is how I came to understand the whole good vibes / bad vibes thing. We are made up of molecules, which are in vibration therefore we are emitting energy. And the kicker is …so is everyone and everything else. And all this energy is interacting.
Also in rudimentary science we know that the movement of the moon influences tides (or the flow of water) on earth. So it is not hard to get your head around the idea that the movement of planets (especially when coming into alignment and combining their gravitational impact) would influence the flow of energy on earth.
In recent decades scientific technology has evolved to the point where it can now measure things at atomic levels, inside and outside the human body. A brainwave study was released recently establishing that an act of kindness not only measurably influenced the doer and the receiver but also increased endorphin levels in those who witness the action. How cool is that? It is this kind of new science that has won me over to spiritualism and energetic healing.
Don’t follow anything or anyone blindly… most disciplines have both good and bad. Be true to your heart, trust your intuition…take the good and release the bad. Respect the rights of others to believe what speaks to their heart, each spirit must move forward on its own path at its own pace. I have always said we move from one life to the next with only two goals; share what we know & learn what we can.
