As mentioned in the earlier parts of this series the energy supply for healing is infinite and unconditional, similar in nature to the energy of our sun, but on a much more universal scale.
This means we have a never-ending supply of this energy similar to a reservoir of drinking water that never runs out. In a sense, we can treat this energy in a similar fashion to a reservoir that we can tap into. In a similar fashion to the way water moves through the pipe to be released, a tap must be opened and space must be provided for the water (energy) to flow.
The issue we have as human beings is that we are so busy all the time, especially in our minds with all the things we need to be conscious of, planning for, and worrying about. This crowds our heads with a constant processing activity.
As we discussed in earlier chapters, the energy comes from above and moves down and outwards through our body. To start encouraging this healing energy to move through our physical body we first need to create some space for the energy to move into. All energy ultimately behaves in the same way as liquids and gasses and will naturally move where there is space available. This is often referred to as simple diffusion.
The simplest and quickest way to create space within us is to quieten the mind and the thinking process, and the most effective way of achieving that is with a simple meditation. Today we are going to talk about the energy reservoir and the most powerful meditation method to quiet the mind, create space and allow healing energy to start moving.
Where is the Energy Reservoir
According to modern astrophysics the physical Universe is only 5% visible matter and 95% dark matter and dark energy (invisible stuff). Scientists now acknowledge that this invisible energy is what mysteriously designs, creates and supports the structure of the visible Universe and also continues to cause its expansion. This would fit in alongside the proposed infinite nature of the spiritual realm, an omnipresent God, or other versions of the creative force, source, and creator. Interestingly, dark energy is very mysterious. This infinite energy does not dilute but rather retains a constant density, even as the Universe rapidly expands, which goes entirely against the laws of physics. (1)
Our very own bodies grow from within and continue to expand outwardly and I don’t just mean gaining weight! I’m talking about cellular growth and regeneration. Within a few weeks, we grow billions of new cells and can replace old or damaged tissue. Every living thing inherently grows from within and expands in exactly the same way as the Universe itself. We are connected energetically to the universe and its creative force.
Likewise, Healing energy is within the fabric of our world and feeds us with information and energy to continue growing and regenerating. We will refer to it as Ultimate Healing Energy. After all the term ‘heal’ means to make whole. As we gain stronger connections to this healing energy and the information that comes with it, our genetic, metabolic, cellular, mental, and even our emotional signals become more intact, complete and whole, and consequently, over time, we are healed.
For the sake of this ‘tapping in’ meditation exercise, we will mainly talk about inner light and sound and briefly touch on the term ‘Spirit’. I will keep this uncomplicated, and generic, as I want you to keep an open mind and grab the full potential of the meditation without challenging any belief, religion or thought system. That’s my rationale for keeping it as scientific as possible.
The Benefits of Meditation
There is only one real purpose or desired end result of any meditation practice and that is ‘spiritual illumination’. With meditation, we proceed to open up our senses until our ‘sixth sense’ is stimulated and activated. You have your own unique healing path to find and this is what this process is here to facilitate. All I have set out to do is to open up a few doors and windows in your heart and mind with the desire to empower your transformation and healing. The meditations are based on this same principle, expanding your window of consciousness, so as to broaden your view.
The benefits of Meditation have been well documented such as experiences of ecstasy, peace, stress and pain relief, slowed ageing, plus the reduction in many diseases. (2,3,4,5,6)
I have been meditating most of my life and have looked at a multitude of different techniques. I believe the method I have developed and described in this chapter will bring you the quickest and most powerful healing results and quickest spiritual progress of any method in the world. Best of all, you can fit it right in with whatever knowledge, beliefs or religion you might already have.
During meditation we may see, hear and feel things which appear to originate in another dimension. We can become partially aware of the 95% invisible fraction of our Universe. This can change the way we view our world and our lives for the better, in many ways. We may find many benefits along the way, such as health, energy, clarity of mind, higher intellect, greater perception and many other resulting changes that will spill over into our lives, but spiritual illumination and healing is the ultimate goal.
By experiencing this you may realize the higher truth about who you are and what it is you should do with your life. Your body will feel the changes, emotionally and physically very quickly. Peace of mind and clarity of thought can be dramatic. Intuition and guidance may start to become a little more than coincidental in your life.
It has been suggested that group meditation can affect large numbers of people for the better. Studies have shown that crime rates tend to drop when large groups meditate together. (7)
This shows the power of meditation to influence and heal your surroundings. Imagine what it can do within your family, workplace and personal health.
As you connect with the higher power at work in our Universe and channel that power through your intuition, mind, and body as information, you directly impact all things around you. You start to send out a signal like a transmitter and all things around you respond in some way. Peace, love, harmony, happiness, energy, and light will appear to radiate from within you and affect your surroundings.
The Meditation Process
I’ll now share the meditation method I have found to work the best.
It comes in three major parts, all of which are ideally combined into your meditation.
Before you begin, find a quiet space where you can sit and be comfortable, relax and not be interrupted. You can lie down if you want, but sitting does work slightly better, plus you tend to stay awake longer.
Close your eyes and allow yourself to breathe deeply and slowly. If you know the yoga breathing method you can employ that, but simply put, breathe deeply and slowly into your belly, breathing in through your nose and exhaling out through your mouth.
To start getting results quickly with meditation, it pays to keep it very simple.
- You will get better results by sitting upright as gravity seems to encourage a better energy flow when sitting.
- Crossed legs and clasped hands also help create an electrical circuit which helps.
- You can also do this when lying down before going to sleep or before rising in the morning
What is Sound?
Well, it all depends on how you look at it. Have you ever heard the sound of a computer or fax machine on your telephone line? It’s all hissing and crackling and yet masses of information are passing through with that sound. Imagine that our communication technology was advanced by another 100 years and you could pass the amount of genetic information required to build a complete human being, down the phone line every second. What would the sound of that be? Imagine the tone of a crystal bowl or glass ringing sweetly or even the harmony of thousands of crystal tones making beautiful music. I propose that this is the sound you may eventually hear in meditation if you listen well. It has been coined “Holy Sound” by some in the Sikh religion, but we are going to call it ‘Healing Sound’.
In the beginning, it will sound like a very, very high pitched whistle. It may be like a tiny crystal glass ringing or the electrical sound of something like a television or computer going in the other room, or perhaps many microscopic summer cicadas singing. That almost ultrasonic frequency of sound is what I suggest listening to. You might even think you have a case of tinnitus but if you listen to it you will soon realize it is something else entirely. It has a penetrating feeling that comes with it. It has healing energy if you accept it into your energy field. By listening to it and tuning in to it you will find that your intuition becomes clearer, your hearing becomes better and your ability to think and process information is greatly increased.
All you need to do is sit, listen and listen some more. You may enjoy the feelings that come with it. Once your mind starts to wander try the next exercise, Looking for light. You should find 5-10 minutes of listening enough to start with. What I like to do is switch between these exercises. This ‘Healing Sound’ may in-fact hold or carry all of your genetic information and perhaps also gives you subtle signals from your higher intuition. I suggest this because it fits within the realm of the information highway, similar to that discussed earlier. Listening will open your sixth sense and increase your still, small voice within (the voice of your higher intuition, the voice of the spirit, or the voice of God). Eventually, you can practice meditative listening anytime at all, even stuck in traffic, standing in a queue or waiting room, or any place providing an appropriate quiet space.
What is Light?
In relation to meditation, the term “light” may be used in many ways such as inner light, illumination, guiding light, spiritual light, the force for good, electricity or even stars.
Once again we are seeing the great mystery of the energy in our Universe. There are no finite boundaries on light, only to the degree to which we can measure light. Light becomes invisible at a certain point and it reaches massive speed and infinitely small size. Gamma rays pass directly through our planet and they are simply a very high-frequency form of light. Dark energy itself may, in fact, be visible light in the spirit realm. These questions supply another powerful exercise for meditation.
Simply sit in a quiet place and find something about 5 paces away, maybe the wall opposite or the ceiling if you are lying down. This works best in the dark. Now slowly close your eyes while continuing to look at the far wall or ceiling. It is important to remain focused at that distance so you don’t stop looking. The further you can focus the better. You can even look at the distance of the night sky while lying on the ground.
What you are looking for is light or colors of any description. The longer you look, the more you will find and you may be surprised at what you see.
This exercise greatly improves eyesight and it will help you keep occupied if you are doing the listening meditation and find your mind is still wandering. At first, you may see thousands of tiny small dots and the occasional twinkling light. You might see bright balls of light, patterns of energy, beautiful life-like moving patterns of light, moons, stars or even spiritual visions. Don’t be disappointed if you don’t see anything at all. This meditation is a bit like learning to play the piano: it takes time, but you have no lessons to take. You simply need to practice listening and looking for a few minutes a day.
If you are lucky enough to see wonderful lights or perhaps even visions then I need say no more. Keep looking and listening at the same time to get the best experience. After a while you may get tired of this exercise then you can move on to the next thing, feeling.
What is Feeling?
This is a very interesting question since we can actually feel sound, heat, light, air, water, emotions even mental impressions can be felt.
What you can do with this meditation is to allow yourself to feel the energy moving into, around and even through your body. If you hold no belief system and you purely have an open mind, you will be able to experience the full healing effects offered by this practice. If you have negative thoughts while doing this you will not achieve the benefits, so it is essential to focus on loving, kind thoughts and be in a high moral position mentally and emotionally when you start. I always ask myself to be open to only the highest good and take the universal, unconditionally loving perspective that we have talked about earlier.
Enter into the listening and looking meditation for a few minutes and then begin really focusing on what you can feel. It can be very powerful or it can be very gentle. It all depends on what you need at the time. The forces of nature and the Spirit of healing will always bring you the needed response. You may feel a warmth, tingling, buzzing or humming, coolness, lightness, spacey, floating sensations and many, many more feelings. Sometime you may shake, tremble or convulse. This is all OK, and must be let go, and will pass. Above all else, as time passes you may feel a lasting feeling of divine love and peace.
If you feel this then you have made the greatest of all discoveries you can make with meditation. You have discovered your true self, the very essence of what you are made of, and what it is that makes you. Once you have found this, you have the ability to transform any negative state into the positive state, whether it be physical, mental or emotional. Once you have located your connection with the great Spirit of love you have found your ultimate healing energy.
There is no point in attempting to place your experiences within a belief system but rather place your knowledge around your experiences. This way you can remain completely open to new experiences. A belief system can’t contain these new experiences, but knowledge may expand and be flexible enough to accommodate these new experiences. Otherwise, you simply miss out on many of the possible experiences offered by meditation. You must leave yourself open to discover and experience what great infinite realities meditation offers because if there is one absolute certainty in the Universe it is this, everything must change.
Transformation is exactly that, a process of profound change deep within one’s energy field. The simple meditation method below will help open you to these changes and allow your body to respond to them.
1. Find a quiet comfortable place without music or any outer disturbance. Get comfortable;
2. Take several slow deep breaths and then simply rest;
3. Do the listening technique for 5-10 minutes;
4. Move on to the looking technique for 5-10 minutes;
5. Then focus on the feeling technique for 5-10 minutes;
6. Try combining all three techniques for 5-10 minutes;
7. Stop and rest for 5 minutes;
8. Repeat the above as often as you feel comfortable;
9. Simply allow some time for stillness; and
10. Increase your time as comfortable.
By creating a quiet space for observation you have opened up a channel and this naturally allows energy to move.
By now you should have a reasonably clear understanding of the nature of healing energy, where it comes from, how it moves, how to connect with it and also how to tap into it.
In the next chapter, we are going to get this energy moving through your body. The initial experiences with healing energy can be wonderful and uncomplicated, but as we progress the energy will start to work on us and require some understanding of the healing process to get more complete healing in the body and emotions.
I hope this gets you started and underway with your practice of self-healing.
We are going to start using this energy in a more specific fashion shortly.
