Wake up and Dance to a Different Tune!

On the surface of things our senses tell us that we are separate individuals, living separate lives in a world that is divided into distinct countries with differing world views.  Our sense of reality is rooted in Newton’s model of a clockwork universe where man’s mind is separate from his mechanical body and separate from his environment.  Things only “exist” if we can experience them with our senses and can be scientifically measured, quantified and replicated in clinical experiments.  We have collectively bought into this old paradigm and the result is escalating dissent, hatred and conflict wherever we look.

There is a growing realisation that something is very wrong with this way of looking at our world and everything in it, including ourselves.  The child was right – the emperor does indeed have no clothes on (see below for the full fairy story by Hans Christian Anderson).  Something is missing.  We have forgotten who we are, what we are and what we came to do.

Over the last 20 years eminent scientists, metaphysicists and quantum theorists, have been revealing the alarming truth that what we thought was solid matter – our bodies, rocks, wood etc – is in fact 99.9999% empty space.  We are in reality vibrating energy in motion.  The laws of physics state that the amount of energy in the universe is constant and can not be destroyed or created – only converted from one form to another.

If you dive deep enough into the heart of “solid matter” you discover that everything is interconnected and part of one vibrating sea of energy.  This is the “deep mystery” which pervades and unites all living things.
Western scientists are finally confirming what the mystics and spiritual teachers have known for thousands of years.  Science and spirituality are finally converging over some fundamental realities.

“Everything is interconnected, the bond is holy”
Marcus Aurelius.

Physicists, studying the nature of light, discovered an electrifying paradox which they called “wave particle duality”.  If an experiment was set up one way, light appeared to be made up of separate particles; set up another way, light seemed to behave like a wave.  So which is it – wave or particle?  The answer was a resounding both, depending on your perspective. It makes my brain hurt just thinking about it!  Luckily the quantum physicist and Nobel Laureate, Niels Bohr, stated that “If you think you can talk about quantum theory without feeling dizzy, you haven’t understood the first thing about it”.  As the ground breaking philosopher, Tim Freke, (“The Mystery Experience”, Watkins, 2012) points out: traditionally science has seen things as either right or wrong, black or white, particle or wave – but not both.  Now we have to see that two apparent opposites can both be right, depending on how we look at them.  Is it a wave or is it a particle? He has coined the refreshingly new terminology of “paradoxity” or paralogical thinking” to refer to the paradox of two opposites both being true.  The startling thing is that this is the same for all life and not just for light.

“If you are going to doubt something, doubt your limits”.
Don Ward

Although we might appear to be separate, isolated “waves” on the surface we are also, in our essence, the profound immensity of the ocean.  This is the new paradigm and one that, if enough people wake up to its message, would revolutionise the way we see ourselves, our world and how we live in it.  Instead of conflict, spawned from fear and separateness; it would promote co-operation, love and cohesion generated from a belief in our innate interconnectedness.  What we do to one we do to the whole; what we do to other people we do to ourselves.

“Out beyond ideas of right and wrong there is a field,
I’ll meet you there”.  Rumi

So how, you might well ask, does this affect us individually?  On a personal level, the same paradox exists and we are beginning to realise that our bodies are not just composed of isolated cells, organs and systems distinct from each other – it is an integrated whole functioning in unison.  Everything in the universe is composed of energy and our bodies are multi-dimensional energy systems.  Every cell is vibrating at a particular frequency, in harmony with its neighbours and its environment.  We are literally humming with energy.  Radical and exciting research shows that your body is not separate from your thoughts, emotions and beliefs.

The neuroscientist, Candace Pert, revolutionised the way we see this interconnectedness in our own bodies.  Her experiments showed that the mind is not just in the brain, but all over the body.  The neurotransmitters (the chemicals we think with) are found in every cell throughout the body and form a dynamic information network linking mind and body.  So our thoughts, feelings and beliefs have a dramatic impact on the functioning of every cell of the body.  This offers new understanding about the power of the mind and emotions to affect our health and wellbeing.  These “molecules of emotion” infuse the physical body with consciousness and are instrumental in creating health or otherwise.  Philippa Lubbock, in her inspirational book “Life Alignment”, (Watkins, 2010), states that each feeling and emotion vibrates at its own frequency and “when we feel afraid, sad or joyful, there is a bio-chemical response in our body cells”.  Negative thoughts, emotions and beliefs cause the release of stress chemicals and can leave a negative charge in our cells which weaken and congest the system and we loose energy.  Positive thoughts, emotions and beliefs bathe our cells in life-enhancing, immune boosting hormones which promote health, wellbeing and increased energy.

“Your body is literally eavesdropping on the conversations from your mind”.  Deepak Chopra.

The vibrational pattern of our beliefs and experiences are held in the body at a cellular level.  If an experience had a negative impact on us, we may hold onto the energetic negative charge in our bodies.  If what we are doing and how we are behaving is not working for us any more, we need to discover and understand the power of the “inner game”.  It is useful to learn how to clear the internal interference that prevents us accessing our full potential and transmitting a clear signal.  How we think and what we believe is the blueprint for what we become and how we act.  Without knowing it, we become the story that we tell ourselves on a daily basis.  It is helpful to use the most effective and energising words.
Healing, making whole, involves letting go of negative thought patterns.

NLP Coaching is a powerful way to understand what is going on and to make transformational changes. Life Alignment is a dynamic system of vibrational medicine that homes in on the trapped negative emotional energy and releases it. Physical, emotional and psychological health is restored.   I find that the Life Alignment system amplifies the coaching in a profound and deeply enriching way; enabling people to regain control over their own lives and healing.

The Emperor’s New Clothes – Hans Christian Anderson

Once upon a time there was a vain Emperor who cared for nothing except his appearance and clothes.  He hires two tailors, who turn out to be swindlers.  They promise him the finest, best suit of clothes from a fabric invisible to anyone who is unfit for his position or “just hopelessly stupid”. The Emperor cannot see the cloth himself, but pretends that he can for fear of appearing unfit for his position; his ministers do the same. When the swindlers report that the suit is finished, they mime dressing him and the Emperor then marches in procession before his subjects, who play along with the pretense. Suddenly, a child in the crowd, too young to understand the desirability of keeping up the pretense, blurts out that the Emperor is wearing nothing at all and the cry is taken up by others. The Emperor cringes, suspecting the assertion is true, but holds himself up proudly and continues the procession.
