Stepping Off the Treadmill -The Origin of Stress

The imbalance of doingness and hyperactivity versus beingness and repose has several causes. One of the primary ones however, finds its origin in the sub-personalities… The indescribable joy of a contented Inner Family in expression awaits all who are ready to leave the treadmill’s adversity behind. It does not end duality but balances it – the next step to transcending to a life of no opposites.

  • The more steeped we are in belief systems, and hence the more programmed our behavior is, the more life pressures us to change through providing opposition.
  • Stories of our lives can become identities if we allow them to define us. They are a role we briefly play on the stage of life, and as life moves to the next act, they disappear. Do not value them as relevant to who you are in the moment, but neither should they be discarded if they are a source of inspiration and a means of connecting with others.

A life of grace and peace unfolds through inspiration rather than opposition. All life changes when we find our source of inspiration.

Practical Advice on Unblocking Your Chakras

Can you tell us specific ways that we can remove the debris that is blocking our chakras? As I understand it, a blocked chakra can affect our health in the area where the chakra is located. (This question refers to our post “The Seven Bodies of Man – Physicality and Beyond” of June 28, 2014.)

 

First of all, we may ask where do these seals or plugs come from? The earth too has her chakras, and the opening of the seven seals as described in the Bible (Revelations) refers specifically to the earth’s opening of her chakras in preparation for her ascension.

As trauma or forced change (pain)[1] occurs, there is often a delay in processing the insights[2] that the experience yields. In the case of the earth we have to process it for her. The accumulation of these suppressed insights creates a blockage or plug in the center of the chakra. Most people therefore have chakras that are conical to the front and back.

As we start living self-examined lives and extract the insights from past experience, the chakras release their seals and become spherical. The more we become aware of the purpose of indwelling life hiding behind form, the more our chakras open and overlap. Eventually, there is one large unified chakra field. Heartache, sexual stimulation, expanded awareness, and other feelings usually localized within the area of a chakra, now are felt in the entire body.

When the chakra fields unify, a lot more energy is available to the individual and inner guidance becomes strong. The reason for this is that obstruction from the mental body is partially reduced and the influence of the higher bodies floods into the lower bodies. One begins to live in grace; to cooperate with the higher self in living the blueprint for this particular life.

The Seven Bodies of Man – Physicality and Beyond

Q. What is the meaning of the assemblage point? Does it have anything to do with our chakra system or acupuncture meridians?

A. Let’s talk about the Seven Bodies of Man…

Beyond the physical body, we have light bodies that are connected to the seven chakras. Before our seven chakras open, the mental body, which is connected to the ego, stands guard to block the information of the three higher spiritual bodies. The three spiritual bodies are the ones containing the blueprint for the full potential of our life. Clearing the debris from the chakras and forming a unified field gives us access to this blueprint. We then receive information from all our bodies. The five light bodies that surround the physical body alternate between being masculine (linear) and feminine (flowing fields). They mimic the dimensions, with the outer-most one (the seventh body) and the physical body being neutral. (See the illustration below  – “The Seven Bodies of Man”.)

7 Bodies of Man Identity-Consciousness with text

Understanding the Seven Bodies

1. Physical Body: The physical body is the anchoring point for our Higher Self to explore the mystery of our being within physicality. It is highly susceptible to programming transmitted through touch for several minutes after birth. It holds the memories of this and other lives.

2. Etheric or Astral Body: The majority of karma, which is a constriction in the universal energy flow formed by incorrect perception, is held in the astral body. Only a small portion is in the physical body. It consists of bluish lines of light. It produces the acupuncture points and the major and minor chakras by the energy lines crossing each other. Where they cross 7 times is an acupuncture point, 13 times is a minor chakra point and 20 times is a major chakra point. This body is linear and is located an inch out from the physical body.

3. Emotional body: Is the auric field. Past trauma is held in the first three bodies – the physical, astral and emotional bodies. Therefore, as we overcome our past and balance our sub-personalities,[1] this becomes clearer. This body is a flowing field,that extends about 14 inches out from the physical body.

4. Mental Body: As we balance the three minds, including the left and right brains, the mental body ceases to block access to the higher bodies. This linear body is located about 14 inches out from the body.

5. Spiritual Emotional Body: Access to this body allows us to live in eternal time, which aligns us with the intent of the Infinite. This body is a flowing field that extends about 19 inches out from the physical body.

6. Spiritual Mental Body: Information within this body contains specifics regarding the blueprint for this lifetime. When access to this body is achieved, we start to see from a cosmic perspective. We begin to see the innocence and value of each life as it mirrors to the Infinite either what it is or what it is not. We see there is no guilt so all judgment effortlessly dissolves. This body is linear and s located about 19 inches out from the physical body.

7. Spirit Body: It is trillions of little light fibers of light radiating out in all directions from the life-force center[2]. Every living creature within the cosmos has a band of awareness among these light fibers within our spirit body. That is why we are the microcosm of the macrocosm. Shamans use this body to shape shift into animals or other forms, in addition to accessing parallel realities. They move a point of illumination called the assemblage point located an arm’s length behind the heart and a little bit to the right. This body is a linear field radiating out from the center to an arm’s length from the physical body.

The assemblage point is on the outer rim of the seventh light

body (spirit body) and is an illuminated spot that determines

which reality we are in. If that point moves, this universe,

which seems solid, disappears and another reality assembles.

It is as though we have accessed different holographic

experiences. A slight movement of the assemblage point puts

us in an altered state, such as in meditation.

 

With practice, we can go into a temporary meditative state,

even if we are just going to the end of the garden to get the

mail. It is a temporary disconnecting of the clamor of left

brain that allows pure information from higher realms to shed

light on the situation and give us accurate information about the unknown.

Antioxidants and Rejuvenating Agents

Antioxidants are substances that protect your cells against the effects,of free radicals. Free radicals are molecules produced when your body breaks down food. They can also be the result of exposure to toxins in our environment such as tobacco smoke, smog and radiation. Free radicals can damage cells, and may play a role in heart disease, cancer and other diseases.

Some of the highest food sources of antioxidants are Ningxia, wolfberry, blueberries, kale, strawberries and spinach. All of these ingredients are easy to turn into green, high-energy shakes in your blender. Remember that all raw, pure fats and oils contain antioxidants as well as vitamins A, C and E. Vitamin A is a metabolite of beta-carotene, a red pigment found in carrots, squash, gogi berries, etc.

Lake Klamath is one of the richest environments for the growth of fresh water blue-green algae, a highly powerful antioxidant. Each year, 17 streams and rivers deposit over 50, 000 tons of mineral-rich silt from the surrounding volcanic basin into the lake which supports the growth of the algae.

The essential oils that have the highest amount of antioxidants are clove, cinnamon bark, thyme, oregano and mountain savory.

Virgin olive oil (organic cold pressed, first press is preferable) is a natural health aid for a variety of reasons. It improves brain maturation and function, aids in membrane development, cell formation and differentiation, reduces production of cholesterol, gallstones and assists in bile secretion and the digestion of fats.

Relieving Stress with the Experience of Eternal Time

Where are you going at such a speed?

Why is hurrying such a need?

When you will end up where you’ve already been…

 

…Cease the race, with no place to go

Take time for being and eternal time[1] you’ll know

When linear time and eternal time blend

Timelessness is born and your body will mend.

Sunburn, Insect Bites and Stings Treatment – Enjoy you Summer!

Q.  I know preventing sunburn is preferable, but I am wondering if you can recommend treatment for sunburn with natural ingredients?

A. We can recommend the following for sunburn and also have a few suggestions for treatment of insect bites and stings.

Sunburn
Aloe Vera gel is cooling and soothing for sunburn and helps healing. Tannic acid powder dissolved in cool bath water soothes sunburn.

Insect repellants
Orange peel may be rubbed across exposed skin to serve as an insect repellant; lavender and cedar oil are also effective in repelling insects.

Insect bites and sunburn
Aloe Vera is beneficial in treating bites and burns. You can use the gel of an Aloe Vera plant from your home or purchase a gel product (100% organic gel is recommended) from a health food store or pharmacy. Chilled witch hazel, white or apple cider (organic with the mother in it is recommended) may be used to decrease the itching of bites.

Insect bites and stings
Activated charcoal is an effective treatment for spider or other bites and stings. First, remove any stingers. Use clean water to make a paste of the charcoal and apply it to the affected area. A piece of plastic wrap covered with a bandage will keep the charcoal paste in place. (This is also an excellent remedy for boils or pimples.) A paste of baking soda and cool water is an excellent antidote for stings.

Note: If an insect bite or sting creates an allergic reaction resulting in abnormal swelling, welts, difficulty in breathing or signs of shock, obtain emergency medical assistance.

In Harmony with Nature

Wherever diseases exist, a lack of harmonious frequencies can be found in the body. Plants
can provide missing frequencies and therefore restore health. The plant kingdom represents
the resource for adjusting frequency.

~ * ~

When we notice the simple riches of nature, they become our own. That within us, which they reflect, is activated into fuller expression. We cannot appreciate what we do not have within.

Beauty Products Made at Home

Q. Do you have any recipes for natural beauty products?

Almine’s reply:

Lavender oil
Lavender oil is rare in that it is anti-inflammatory and balancing (normalizing oiliness) and is suitable for every body type. Furthermore, it reduces stress and enhances libido. It is a powerful wrinkle reducer, antiseptic and scar eliminator. Like bergamot oil, you can use it as an anti-depressant and it is also great as a deodorant. It relieves sunburn and restores skin’s elasticity.
Note: Drop 4 drops of lavender oil into a cup of pure, cool water. Dip a washcloth in the solution, wring out the excess liquid, and use as a soothing eye compress.

Toners and Spritzers
1. Mineral water mixed with 3–4 drops of lavender oil.
2. Organic apple cider vinegar mixed with 3–5 drops of lavender oil
relieves skin disorders, redness, inflammation and age spots.
3. A tablespoonful of witch hazel combined with 2 drops of lavender
oil is an astringent, cooling toner that refines skin tone and
minimizes enlarged pores. Store this in the refrigerator.

Note: Use spray bottle to mist face if desired, keep eyes closed when spritzing.

Abundant Life

A positive attitude begets increase. With a surrendered embrace of life, the pushing away of resources will cease. Centripetal force, the result of an inclusive attitude, pulls all towards you for a life of plenitude.
