Effecting your world

Effecting your world

As women we can easily lose touch with what makes us happy and excited as we tend to everyone else’s needs around us, whether we are a CEO or a stay at home mom. But what does this cost those we tend to? What are they missing out of if we don’t bring our insights and excitement and enlightenment to the moment we share with them?

In vinyasa yoga class the other day my teacher Carole, told us about the myth of the Lord of the fishes named Matsayana and the creation of yoga. That shiva came down from the mountain excited to tell his partner about what he learned. They thought they were talking in a place where no one could hear them but a fish was in the water nearby and overheard everything they said. That fish became enlightened and the first student of yoga. A fish.

What I get from this story is that no matter how much we may try to keep any type of insight or enlightenment to ourselves, we are bound to effect everything in our environment the moment we express it, especially when we are excited about something. Even a fish in a tank could be effected and uplifted by us.

The collective energy in a room makes up the field-environment, which vibrates at a certain pitch. The overall room pitch or vibration, is based on the collective pitch of the individuals in the room. Often when a few individuals take the initiative, they can change the collective room vibration by increasing their own pitch. This can be done by radiating the attitude of peace and flow into the field environment while doing deep heart listening, with the intent remaining neutral without judgment. – HeartMathInsitiute

I’m not talking about pure transcendent bliss here, just our everyday enlightenment. Sometimes that shows up as laughter and getting through something intense in a more grounded and present way. Who knows. Deep down inside only you know what makes you your best, what makes you excited.

We’ve all experienced being around someone who was passionate about something. Try to remember how that passion and excitement rubbed off on you, how it changed the energy of the space you were in. Just take a look at what happens to water (we are mostly water you know) when different thought vibrations are near it. (as shown from the work of Masaru Emoto) And many, especially in Kundalini Yoga, say women are very powerful in projecting their thoughts and energy, a skill that is needed for child rearing.

For many of us the issue is a fear of letting go and loosening up. We hold back our laughter and joy and insights, maybe to not be seen or to not be judged. We want our loved ones to  show excitement about what matters to them but we don’t demonstrate it for them.

Women are the backbone of the family, whether a work family or a born family. We have a strong capacity to feel and flow with nature and our surroundings. We just need to let go and share in the moment. It doesn’t matter if no one is around, we will effect the very fabric of life that surrounds us. Even a fish will be lifted up by our energy.

Can the future change the past?

Can the future change the past?

Quantum physicists recently revealed “that future actions may influence past events, at least when it comes to the messy, mind-bending world of quantum physics.” by entangling particles “after they may no longer exist.” (4-30-2012 livescience)

As a healer, writer, & alternative scientist at heart it makes me wonder – Does this mean we will be able to change and possibly heal our past? and where exactly is our past?

If time is not linear then perhaps we could find a way to change past events but scientists go on to state that “In the quantum world, things behave differently than they do in the real, macroscopic world we can see and touch around us.” (4-30-2012 livescience)

This is not something we have heard about in manifesting and law of attraction books. These books often are studying the quantum world an applying it to the macroscopic world as if they are equally related and operate under the same rules. If we can manipulate time in the quantum world, there is still much to be learned to be able to manipulate time in the macroscopic world, though it can be done.

The questions that come to mind are:

  • would we even know something was done?
  • could our minds handle it?
  • could we be still enough to hold one time frame while another merges in?
  • would we lose all of the things we have learned from the past?
  • how would this effect art and the written word? (the things we have created)
  • Perhaps the act of creation requires a time line that is set in stone?

In many cases our view of time and of the past is so solid, so concrete, it would be hard to allow such an event to happen. Merely bringing up this research has people squirming, trying to inch their way out of the discussion.

Think about it – If one had cancer for years and built an entire identity and belief system around dealing with such a disease, could they just let go of the layers and layers of energetic mass around having that to begin with? And what about their family, would they hold it in place for the patient regardless of what he did?

It may be possible to rewrite the past, but if the intention for things to stay as they are is stronger, that intention will always win.

“A car has a pretty strong intention to stay a car” (What the Bleep do we know)

We haven’t yet mastered the present world as we know just yet, let’s see if we can do that first. Let’s just see if we can find the present moment.
