Rethinking Gravity…and life.

 

RETHINKING GRAVITY…and life.

 

In my mature years, I seem to have developed a ravenous interest in and curiosity about things metaphysical, neuroscientific, spiritual and metabolic. Unlike my less ravenous years as a young student, I am now armed with the understanding that at the most basic level, all the above (and all else in our world) are intricately connected.

Let me share a little of my most recent ‘learnings’. The other day, a friend of mine came down with a bout of vertigo. Head spinning, dizzy feeling and unsteadiness on her feet. Now my knowledge of the human vestibular system, housed in the inner ear section of the head, caused me to speculate that this delicately balanced system had been adversely affected by some sort of infection. While discussing the matter, we ventured onto the subject of gravity and our relationship to it. It occurred to us that something as simple as vertigo or an ear infection, can so easily disrupt our relationship with this phenomenon of physics. Now I’m not alluding to the apple falling on the head moment that gave Sir Isaac Newton his aha moment, preceding the claim that he had ‘discovered’ something that had existed from creation. I’m talking about the dynamics of this natural law that we take for granted daily…until our personal relationship with it is thrown off. If it is a constant ‘law’ how can it be altered in some persons’ reality (e.g. vertigo) and not others’…at the same time?

 

Astronaugt

 

Gravity is often described as a ‘pull’ or ‘force’, though Einstein insisted it wasn’t a force at all, but that’s another story. Simply put, Earth’s gravitational pull compels/draws you toward the centre of the planet, but the ground is in the way (thankfully); said ground pushes up against you, matching the force of gravity exactly. It is this push that makes you feel heavy (not the whole pizza you ate last week!). Now we know that astronauts in their space ships are no longer subject to the law of gravity in the same way as they are on earth, but did you know that a person also weighs less at the equator? Yes, if you stand on the equatorial line, say in Uganda, you will weigh less! If that isn’t enough, you would actually weigh three times less if you lived on Mars, just in case a future trip is open to you. Now before you consider relocating, as an alternative to managing your ‘mass’, read on.

There are also some other fascinating facts pertaining to this little discussed (by your average person) law! Did you know that if you are located/live on the equator, when you pull your plug in the sink, the water goes straight down the drain, as opposed to north and south of the equator where the water first spirals either clockwise or anticlockwise, depending on which hemisphere you reside in? Literally, if you stand on either side of the centre of the earth, gravity behaves differently! Again, variables on what we might have previously believed was a simple ‘what goes up, must come down’ law.

 

Stay with me now, here is where it really gets interesting (or not). This gravitational pull that keeps your feet firmly planted on the earth, is strong enough to keep us ‘grounded’… is weaker than the magnetic force of the magnet on your fridge! A little scary if you think about it. No wonder one refers to being magnetized by a man or woman one is attracted to! Remember that when you write your next Valentine’s Day poem. ;). So, remember, the magnetic pull is stronger than gravity!!!

 

God helmet

 

If that thought is not scary enough, do a little research on the ‘God Helmet’, a device developed by a neuroscientist called Micheal Persinger, which involves placing it on the head of a person (specifically in the region of the right temporal lobe) then transmitting weak electromagnetic impulses that stimulate that part of the brain. While the magnetic force is not as strong as the magnet on your fridge, it is sufficient to induce altered states of consciousness…expressed by thousands of participants as ‘being in the presence of God’. Outer body experiences, where gravity ceased to exist, were also reported. Mr Persinger is apparently working on a virtual reality video game that might very well have the next generation exploring spirituality through technology!!! One such version is already available for consumer purchase in the form of the Shakti Helmet. Memba mi tell you! What was once considered mystical and magical is now scientific fact and viewed as standard biology.

 

Anyway, back to my discussion with my friend, which started with vertigo. It soon moved on to the following video, which for many reasons impacts me greatly each time I watch it. It speaks to some fundamentals of the human existence, but touches also on one man’s newly formed relationship with gravity and spirituality. A relationship that both took him off-the-grid and transported him into another realm entirely…let’s call it divine, since that’s how he describes it. I suppose any departure from what we refer to as the ‘rat race’, must give one a sense of divine connectivity. Anyhow…watch the video and experience for yourself how life can be altered by ‘divine science’.

 

 

Now, how do you feel about your life and your relationship to gravity? Makes you wonder, doesn’t it? Can you imagine how much more turned on to learning our children would be if they were exploring and experimenting on such mind stimulating topics in high school? There is clearly a thin line between imagination and reality!!!

 

The next time you pull the plug in the sink or bath…take notice of the direction the water takes going down the drain!

 

I’ll save the discussion on levitation for another time ;).

THE MEANING OF LIFE…?

 

It has been a strange summer, with a myriad of worldwide events and calamities…quite a few on our Jamaican home soil too in fact.

 

The great Michio Kushi, in a 1984 lecture stated: “We are, at the present time, facing a great crisis. That crisis is the degeneration of humanity through the sickness and mental illness as well as the threat of nuclear war. All these confrontations that threaten our world are due to our present way of thinking – the orientation and direction of modern civilization, itself”. It’s now 2017 and the picture doesn’t seem to have improved, has it?

 

Let’s take some time to explore the views of a man, many will never have heard of.

 

WHAT IS MAN?

As we prepare for the official ‘Back to School’ routine today, I hope that you have the time, strength, will and energy to watch, study, consider and understand the information shared in the video below. It’s not the easiest video to follow, given the thick Japanese accent of the presenter, but I urge you to listen intently and watch with all 3 eyes (including your one for discernment). Yes, I know I’m getting deep again, but in these times of apparent world chaos…wouldn’t it be nice to KNOW ‘THE meaning of life’?

 

Based on my years of personal searching, questioning, experiencing and ‘feeling’, the quest for answers to the ‘big question’ seem to be superbly outlined by Michio Kushi. This (late) master of Macrobiotics (do a little research) hits many nails on their proverbial heads.

 

My view is that ALL students/children should be taught these facts regarding human existance, soul existance and the relationship between the two. But enough from me…sit back, relax, watch the video…and open your own consciousness to the content.

 

 

When you have finished watching…feel free to share your thoughts and feelings.

 

REAL SCHOOL IS IN SESSION!

CHANGE YOUR LIFE STORY…OR NOT.

 

CHANGE YOUR LIFE STORY…OR NOT!

Over many years, as a result of multi-level conditioning/programming, I, like many of you would have arrived at the belief that the events of our lives are mapped out well before we arrive on the planet. Fate. Destiny. Call it what we will, we give in to the twists and turns of the life journey on the collective understanding that we cannot change the events in our lives. ‘Our Story’ is written in the book of life and we are mere spectators to the unfolding.

 

Well, after many years of observing and experiencing life intently, I no longer hold that belief. After all, ‘belief’ is simply a series of thoughts that we continue to think’…until we change them, right? So, if you will indulge me, allow me to explain why I know that we create our future, as ordained by our Supreme Creator, through our thoughts.

 

MIND OVER MATTER

My interest in the human brain has revealed some amazing facts that continue to inspire me with awe. My deep fascination started when I trained as a Neuronet Therapist, as a means of supporting my son’s early learning. I also became a Learning Performance Specialist, sharing exciting brain facts and learning strategies with high school students across England and Wales. When I coach students in the practices of right/left hemisphere integration for better learning outcomes, I love the look on their faces when we apply the theories and prove that their shift in both thinking and specific right-brain integration practices, positively impacts their ability to learn and remember stuff! Once the students understand the correlation between their thoughts/mind practices and their grades, they are more ready to learn. Further, sharing with them that in one day, all the cell phones in the world cannot generate the same level of electrical impulses as their individual brains, usually gets their attention. Yes, I’m talking neurons firing! Giving off impulses as they connect with other neurons making up the billions forming networks in each of our magnificent brains.

 

BRAIN WAVES

Now, imagine if these neurons, when firing, could emit ‘waves’ that travel outside of our physical bodies. Well, they do. Scientists have measured waves, akin to micro and wifi waves, from the brain of humans, feet away from the head of the subject. The same pertains to the human heart, but that’s a different story.

 

Imagine now, that these waves go out into the atmosphere and alter matter. Yes, that’s what I said. Changing matter external to the body.  Not only is matter altered, but matter is magnetized to you on the basis of the signals contained in the thought-waves. Literally mind over matter! Let this important point sink in a little, because the magnitude of this fact forms the basis of my assertion that YOU control and create your future life events, based on what you think, consistently, about any particular ‘matter’. Good or Bad. So, for example, if you wake up each morning and your first thought is ‘mi salt’…’nothing is going on for me’, it is important to know that your transmitted thought wave has gone ‘out there’ and will be matched with the magnetized confirmation of your statement. Have you noticed how the people that constantly state how sick they are rarely heal? The women that sing the sankey that ALL men are bad, generally repeat a cycle that affirms their belief and predominant thought, time after time attracting ‘bad men’.

 

It boils down to the fact that we are vibrational beings. Yes, we are full of vibes. The physics students amongst you will be able to relate to the fact that all beings and objects are matter, vibrating at differing speeds and frequencies. The human being included. So when someone says, they don’t like your vibe, it is a loose reference to the vibrational energy they are picking up from you within their vibrational zone. And visa versa.

 

LAW OF ATTRACTION

Anyway, I’m not the first person to reach the above conclusions. Google is there for all of us to fatten our factual reserves. I simply chose to share this fundamental information with you on the premise that if it works for me, why not have others out there achieving balance in their lives through the ‘The Law of Attraction’? There are many writings and videos for you to listen/watch on the topic. I, for the most part, am paraphrasing what I have gleaned. In short, that we magnetise our life experiences based on the thoughts we entertain and the vibrations/waves we consequently send out into our universe. Watch the video called ‘The Secret’ and mull over the evidence presented.

 

You literally have to manage your thoughts on a daily basis to keep your life boat sailing smoothly. It doesn’t mean that life won’t rock your boat or the water won’t get choppy from time to time (those are the contrasts of life at play), but the key is, in recognition of what you don’t want showing up, is to adjust your thinking to smooth out the future journey.

 

Since we’re using the analogy of a boat. The other point is that we have been led to believe that life should be about struggle. What if we simply had to focus our minds and thoughts on what we WANT to see/happen/have and not sing endless sankies about what we wanted to eliminate. Close your eyes and place your thoughts (and consequent feeling) on abundance, in place of daily moans about being broke! Instead of lamenting the fact that you are single and can’t find a good man/woman…[after first ensuring that you are reflecting all the positive things you desire in a significant other],… emit those vibrations through positive thoughts of love and a mutually gratifying union. Feel it till it’s real! Anything you push against, fight or resist, creates a tension that creates more of what you are resisting against. Again, the law of attraction. Instead of fighting for peace, why not be peace? The wars on drugs, terrorism etc. in actual fact gives more energy and momentum to the very things not wanted. Why, because when the collective vibrations are emitted, the magnetism can only bring that to you/us/them, what is being focused on…e.g. war, crime…Trump!

 

GO WITH THE FLOW…DIVINE FLOW!

So rather than rowing your life-boat upstream, allow your life-boat to go with the downstream flow, guided by our divine source, for smooth sailing. The Rastafarians call the inner higher self the I in I. We are indeed Spiritual Beings having a Human Experience. I like this perspective of reality as it celebrates the God essence in each and every human being, regardless of location or station in life. It also encourages us to be kinder to one another, resolving that EVERY life matters! So allow your boat to float merrily, merrily, merrily merrily, gently down the stream, rowing only when and where guided (compass = feelings and intuition, as they are free of human ego interference)…and life will indeed be ‘but a dream’.

The mind is powerful! Our natural vibration is harmony of mind, body and spirit. Well-being, Modern lifestyles and dysfunctional cultures have unfortunately eroded this natural order and I, like many like-minded around the world, am passionate about guiding others to a more harmonious life. Happiness is our birthright!

 

So, since our thoughts (and feelings) do indeed become our reality, if you don’t like what keeps turning up in your life…change your mind and create YOUR NEW STORY!

 

ONCE UPON A TIME… 😉
