"When your eyes are on the road of time,|
you forget the circular motion of your Being".
-Jane Roberts, The Nature of the Psyche
As the 21st Century unfolds, experts are learning more and more how our bodies stay balanced, vital, and energetic.
Principles of quantum physics are now being used to describe the reality of our very bodies. In essence,
our physical bodies are simply one thing - pure dynamic energy. Biologists have
discovered that each atom in our bodies is 99.999% free space, and less than 1%
actual "matter". All 76 trillion cells are made up of atoms that oscillate at
186,000 miles per second, yet are mainly empty space. This picture of what our bodies
REALLY are, is far different from what we've all been taught about ourselves.
What seems dense and fixed is really free and ever - changing, vibrating and dynamic.
We are made of nothing but patterns of resonant energy!!
So many people, especially womyn, exist in survival mode. Little time or energy
is devoted to relaxation, rejuvenation, or growth. A balance of work and pleasure
is needed to allow our bodies to exert themselves, yet also relax.
When we feel uplifting thoughts and emotions, such as appreciation, self-respect,
compassion - there is a literal change in our very molecules. Our energy flows more smoothly,
we release constrictions in our muscles, and we relax our nervous and digestive
systems. A belief in life's meaning is vital for the smooth working of our bodies
and our state of health.
Our bodies are wonderful self-clearing and self-regulating systems. The more we use our bodies
in free expression and enjoyment, the greater the physical responsiveness to life and experience.
When we are open to new experiences, we bring a child-like wonder to our minds and
bodies - and live in wonder and awe. Love quickens and balances our bodies - you
SEE more clearly when you love!
Balance can be maintained by a variety of means, such as:
- Some music and sounds can serve as a form of nourishment, such as birds
singing at dawn,...We all have our special song to sing!
- Spending quality time in Nature, communing with our Mother Earth
- Eating fresh, natural foods, unrushed and with enjoyment
- Acknowledging and appreciating our bodies - sending it Love
- Listening to our body and responding to its' messages
- Breathing deeply, exhaling slowly and completely.
Breathe in Life,...Breathe out Toxins and Worries
- Finding out how much sleep YOU need to feel vibrant and granting
this time for your rest
- Allowing yourself to engage in creative play - sing, dance, skip, paint,climb, laugh
- Performing your daily tasks in a relaxed and deliberate way
- Touching others - this acts as a signal to your immune system to relax and
When you sing, hum, or use mantras, the sound created affects the vibration of
your body cells. Find your own unique song and let it sound!!!

Within the human body, seven major energy centers or chakras have been identified, as well as 122 minor ones in our joints, bones, and nerves. The major chakras are summarized in the table above.
Energy flows from the Crown Chakra through to all the major chakras. Earth
energy also flows, beginning in the Root Chakra and rising through the other
energy centers. You can boost your energy quickly, by focusing on each one
in turn, and breathing "into" each daily. Visualize the corresponding color as
you do this, and focus on the body areas and domains governed by each chakra in
turn. Try sounding the mantra that relates to each (see table above). Mantras
work like an ultrasound or sine wave to increase the flow of energy through
each chakra, as well as the rest of your body's energy channels, called meridians.
Learning to ground, collect, and to stabilize your energy will make a big
difference in your body and in your life. You will feel anchored, connected,
safe, and secure. When you clear your energy, you're able to manifest the body
you want, and the life you dream of. If you're feeling stuck in old habits,
weighted down in your body, and filled with negative emotions, you're actually
ready to grow! When you direct your energy, you change your body and your
experience of life.
Grounding and Directing Your Energy
Relax yourself, and breathe deeply. Release all tension.
Visualize your energy flowing freely from your Crown right down through all
of your chakras to your Root Chakra.
Now, see your vital energy extend down, like a long tail from the base of your
spine, through the Earth to its' molten Core.
Wrap your imaginary tail snugly around the earth's core. Send any negative energy
in your body down through this tail to be neutralized by the Core.
Then, receive fresh, invigorating Earth energy up through this tail to your
Root Chakra, then up to the rest of your body and chakras.
Our physical bodies are reflections of our use of energy. They reveal:
- Whether we are in balance
- Where we store energy blockages
- The strength and clarity of our flowing energy
Our hands are powerful transmitters of energy. They work similar to a magnet.
Important chakras are located in the center of each palm.
If you are Right handed :
Your Right Hand is positively charged and sends or gives energy. It emits the
energy that "makes things happen".
Your Left hand is negatively charged, and receives energy. It emits the energy
that "allows things to happen".
If you are Left handed :
Your Left Hand is positively charged and sends or gives energy. It emits the
energy that "makes things happen".
Your Right hand is negatively charged, and receives energy. It emits the energy
that "allows things to happen".
Maintain a free - flowing passageway for your energy flow that extends from your
Crown down along your spine right through to the soles of your feet. In the
middle of your soles, are two more important chakras that keep you grounded to
the Earth's energy. Our longevity is related to our ability to integrate and
synchronize our energy with the Earth's energy, and the energy of other people.
Boost Your Negative Ions
It is very invigorating to allow yourself to experience negative ions as much as
possible. Negative ions are plentiful in Nature, especially near:
Negative ions help you by reducing fatigue, invigorating you, and raising the
resilence of your body.
- Crashing ocean waves
- Pine forests
- Mountain peaks
- Large rocks and boulders
Positive ions are also plentiful in our society. They should be avoided as much
as possible. Positive ions are emitted from:
Positive ions amplify interpersonal conflicts, increase susceptability to colds
and infections, and trigger anxiety, depression, and mental instability.
- Plastic materials
- Poorly ventilated buildings
- Synthetic building materials
- Warm, dry, winds such as Chinooks
Walking Your Energy
When you are tired or stressed, you can restore your balance by simply taking
a walk, preferably in nature. Walking stimulates both sides of your brain,
strengthens your free - flowing energy, and stimulates your inner rhythms.
Try walking like the wind - moving lightly,easily, and naturally shifting your
weight from left to right.
As you walk, see your body as a hollow tube through which energy flows freely -
unblocked and unimpeded. There is almost no limit to the power of your vital
energy once it is harnessed. It can be stored, projected, manipulated, or sent
over long distances to heal or support. Think of your body as a sheath of
Flow with Life and Love - be a Pool of Refreshment and Vigor for yourself and
all that cross your path. Gather your Power, your Energy, and your Intent -
project it fully out into the Cosmos and watch - it will be manifested!!
