I’m not just talking about empathy.
I mean, unless there’s something really messed up with your frontal lobe, how can anyone not sympathize with the pain and suffering of our fellow human beings?
I’m talking about actually feeling the energetic aftershocks here on this side of the globe. Don’t believe in energy? Okay. Well, there’s no point in moving further until you can really understand what I’m talking about, so go ahead, pick a partner, read a little further, and prove it to yourself.
(I promise, it’s painless!)
Energy channels or power centers within the body, a/k/a gravitational whirlpools of energy, exist not only in theory but can be proven scientifically. They can be found with energy (dowsing) rods or two straightened wire hangers held loosely in the hands, which will cross at these channels and their effects upon the body can be proven with a very simple, painless, non-intrusive demonstration:
1 – You will need two people, one to conduct (“Conductor”) the demonstration and a subject (“Subject”).
2 – Stand and face each other.
3 – Have the Subject raise their left arm straight out. Keep it very stiff.
4 – The Conductor will try to push the extended arm back down to the side of the body. Subject will resist with every ounce of strength possible.
5 – Now, after proving the amount of resistance, both parties will relax and face each other about a foot or so apart.
6 – The Conductor will now locate the Solar Plexus (the Swadhistana [yellow] chakra, or the first Celtic power center). DO NOT TOUCH!
7 – With your first two fingers (pointer and middle) of your dominant hand, in the air — directly over the Solar Plexus — turn the energy counter-clockwise, against the natural energy flow. “Unwind” the energy in a natural, steady, medium paced movement for about a minute. No need for eye contact, concentration, or anything extraneous. It’s just important that the Conductor ‘s “unwinding” is steady and uninterrupted and the Subject is relaxed. You can even talk! The Subject won’t feel a thing. And as time passes, you’ll both most likely begin to feel…pretty stupid just standing there. It’s perfectly normal.
8 – After a minute or so, the Conductor will stop “unwinding” and the Subject will once again raise her/his left arm.
9 – The Conductor will, once again, push down on the extended arm back to its side and the Subject will resist.
10 – You will both find that the strength in resistance has lessened considerably.
Before you resume your normal routine, Conductor, make sure you remember to wind the Subject back up, or they’ll be feeling like a limp fish after about an hour or so!
This demonstration is very popular when skeptics question the existence of energy and its influence. We’re trained if you can’t see it, hear it, smell it, feel it, or taste it, “it,” doesn’t exist. After experiencing the surprising (and alarming) drainage of energy, it’s difficult for the Subject to continue to question energy’s quiet and powerful influence it has on our physical world. It’s not a theory, it’s literally a force to be reckoned with and our bodies were designed to process energy just as the same as air, water, and food.
Physiologically, chakras and energy channels are not something to “believe in.” As Starhawk so crafted in The Spiral Dance, “That’s like asking, ‘Do you believe in rocks?’”
So, now that we’ve determined that just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t physically affect you– and of course with the common knowledge that energy can neither be created nor broken, but reformed, think about those tremendous tremors in the Pacific across the world. Think about those seismic aftershocks. Think of the power and the fury behind the Mother’s great shift and then think how those energy waves will keep going and going and going and going and going until…
You may start to feel headaches, see weird changes in the weather, may be extra restless and have a hard time sleeping…there’ll be a change, for sure. Everyone may experience it a little differently, but we will experience nonetheless, if you haven’t already.
Now think about all your own little earthquakes and tremors. You think people don’t notice? Your insides may not hit 8.9 on the Richter scale, but they happen all the time and nothing is truly secret…
We are truly connected — Nature makes this happen.
9/11? Pearl Harbor? Vietnam? Haiti? Wisconnsin? the Gulf? Japan? They don’t matter to you? Okay, that’s fine. It really doesn’t matter, because regardless of your belief system, science says something very different.
Science says, “We Are One.”
My Faith says, “Hey…I like that!”
So, Blessed be!
