Hungry Minds and Open Eyes

“There is nothing you can learn from as much as a problem you cannot fully solve. Unsolved problems can be some of the greatest tormentors, but also the greatest teachers. Unsolved problems keep the mind hungry and the eyes open.” –Jonathan Zap

My intention for my “Journey to Wholeness” series is to break mindsets, stimulate curiosity, and bring enlightenment to well-being—being well physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. It is a nudge to drop labels—“short, fat, narrow-minded, empty-headed, New Age.” Remain open-minded, non-judgmental of “other-mindedness.”

When we think we know the mind of God, spiritual growth is thwarted. Where is faith? If a marksman or sharpshooter cuts off his trigger finger, he has no further use of his rifle.

By his writings, it seems that Nietzsche lost his faith at the age of 20. Regarding such, here is what he wrote in a letter to his sister: “Hence the ways of men part: if you wish to strive for peace of soul and pleasure, then believe; if you wish to be a devotee of truth, then inquire…”

Was that his last hypothesis after meeting God, again? Who are we to judge?

My point: if you have allowed disappointment from the actions, words, or behaviors of another human being, that’s no reason to throw in the towel on all humanity. The same goes for not receiving the answer you desired from your prayers, life plan, or religion. Continue seeking answers to these “unresolved problems.” Like Zap said, use them as your teachers.

It’s been a week since my series ended. I feel a responsibility to keep your brain from going mushy, so-o-o the last link in my article is to help you keep a hungry mind and open eyes.

Here are a couple of the author’s quotes (Gary ‘Z’ McGee, taken from his “Waking Times”) to prime your mind:

“From microcosm to macrocosm we are infinite beings perceiving an infinite reality using finite faculties.” (That’s us humans trying to figure out the universes, using our mere intellect—devoid of spirituality.)

“Atoms consist of 99.9999999% empty space. That means: everything from the chair you’re sitting on, the computer you’re staring at, even you, are only .000000001% there.” (If you read this for the second time, and no one’s there to witness it, does that mean you’re not there either? Huh?!)

Okay, back to another dimension. Here’s a two-minute exert of theoretical physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku (my second favorite physicist, after “Mysteries of the Universe” narrator, Brian Cox, on the Science Channel), answering Andre Lapiere’s question: “Are there only three dimensions in other universes or could there be more?”

HIP-HIP-HORRAY, for big thinkers!

If any of this intrigues you, here’s a DEEP, humorous rabbit hole…one curious click after another. Be forewarned:

“You are traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination. Next stop, the Twilight Zone!” (Season 3 of Twilight Zone-introduction by Rod Serling)

Journey to Wholeness (XI)–I KNOW Crown Chakra

He IS in everything

He IS in everything

The Crown Chakra represents our spiritual connection to a higher power, understanding and comprehending our ability to commune with the Divine, to God. Its location is at the top of the head, slightly to the back.

When mastering the lower chakras and their vibrational aspects, we become aware that we’re spiritual beings living a human existence. With no spiritual base, imbalances can range from joining cultic groups for guidance to ego-mania.

God created us in His image, from His Divine nature. Like a magnet, we’re (super) naturally drawn to higher electromagnetic fields OR to the spiritual deficit: uninspired atheism!

This chakra corresponds to the pineal and pituitary gland, located directly beneath it.

Keep a journal

Keep a journal

You can open your Crown Chakra by dreaming. Focus on your life dreams. Write them down, and make a plan to achieve them.

The note “B” and the toning of “ē,” as in bee, balance the crown chakra.

The color amethyst is associated with The Crown Chakra. Amethyst, alexandrite, and diamonds are wonderful. (Diamonds remind us of our spiritual focus, enhance clarity of thought, and draw toxins from the physical body.)

The pineal gland is MAJOR in your life purpose. According to the Steadman’s Medical dictionary, the pineal gland is known as the “Epiphysis” gland. (Remind you of something?)

The American diet is full of pineal gland “calcifiers,” like carbonated beverages and fluoridated water. Avoid fluoridated water! Fluoride filters, distillers, and reverse-osmosis filters are available for removing fluoride from drinking water.

White and herbal teas may be better for you because black and green teas are “incredibly efficient at absorbing fluoride from the environment and then releasing it into your body, preventing proper iodine absorption.” Drink responsibly…organic teas, please.

Idaho Blue Spruce #3093 (5-ml at $37.83 retail or $28.75 member price) is another amazing Young Living Essential Oil! Not only does its potent oxygenating quality open the pineal gland that becomes calcified/blocked because of chemical and other toxins, it helps release emotional trauma.

Sacred Frankincense #3550 (5 ml at $55.59 retail, $42.29 member price) is the holy oil of the Middle East, with over 52 references in the Bible. It increases spiritual awareness and enhances communication with The Creator, as does Frankincense. Dan Keskey calls Frankincense “our divine nature activator.” https://www.myyl.com/4wholeness

Suggested application for both of these oils is at the top of the foot (between the first and 2nd toe) and/or at the middle of the forehead at the hair line.  These are body and brain pressure points.

I know this series has been a lot to take in for many of you. My desire is to shine a light on common misconceptions about spirituality and on what I believe is God’s original “medicine”–essential oils, specifically those formulated by Dr. Gary Young of Young Living.

I wish you ALL health, happiness, and harmony within your body and with each other. Please remember and appreciate the wonders of the earth that sustain us.

God bless your journey to wholeness!

In basic summary: “The Law of Pure Potentiality governs the seventh chakra. When your roots are receiving nourishment from the earth in the first chakra, your creative juices are flowing in the second, your intentions are empowered in the third, your heart is open and exchanging love with those around you in the fourth, you are spontaneously expressing your highest self in the fifth, you are in touch with your inner voice in the sixth, only then, does energy move into the crown chakra and you remember your essential nature as infinite and unbounded…you know yourself as a spiritual being temporarily localized to a body and mind.” ~Depok Chopra

Journey to Wholeness (X) I SEE–Third Eye/Forehead Chakra

Intuition is Wisdom’s child.

Remember the 1998 movie, “City of Angels?” Angel Seth took his new friend/past angel to the angel’s gathering place on the beach to watch the sunrise. With closed eyes, facing east, Seth asked him, “Do you hear it?” meaning the sun’s vibration or song. (I had read everything living has its own vibration, but that’s when I got it! I saw with my intuition. The eyes of my understanding were opened. An INsight.)

This week is the Medullar, Brow or, don’t close your mind (get it?), Third Eye Chakra. Frontally, it’s located just above and between the physical eyes. This chakra corresponds to the eyes and pituitary gland. In Christian teaching, it refers to the “eye” of meditation and reflection.

When open, you’re intuitive, imaginative, and decisive. You see your true self and actualize your life direction and life purpose.

If closed, there can be self-doubt, indecision, and distrust. Depression, sleep disorders, learning disabilities, thyroid imbalances, hormonal disorders, headaches, sinus and eye problems may develop.

The note “A” and the toning of “eh,” as in face, balance the Medullar Chakra.

For EXTRA vibrations and overtones, the same goes for sound healing using tuning forks. After striking the fork on your knee, hold it over the chakra for several seconds. Just because you don’t hear its sound after a few seconds doesn’t mean it’s not vibrating. For its full benefit, wait before striking it again.

The law of Cause and Effect govern this chakra. Listen to that still inner voice inside, guiding you to your full potential. Quiet the internal voices of other’s judgments, expectations, and “you should.” Identify the sound and desire of your own soul. Remember you’re a spark of the Divine!

To stoke the fire of your destiny, develop the practice of meditation. In our Western civilization, we forget that Jesus didn’t wear a clergy collar and He wasn’t Protestant or Catholic. He was a holy man from the Middle East, comfortable with its traditions. I believe His “prayers” were not petitioning God. He knew God was IN Him. I believe he spent quiet times listening and looking within.

Meditation isn’t a prayer meeting or worship session; nor is it petitioning for needs and wants. From our youth, we’re encouraged to explore, pursue, and conquer the outside world. As we mature, we realize the undiscovered country of our soul. The noise of the world can drown out the gentle whispers of your soul Identity.

“Meditate day and night….for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” (Joshua 1:8) Tune in to calm, and His direction.

tranquility

Tranquility

Star gaze, drink in a full moon, and camp under the heavens. Unite yourself with creation, that you may create.

Indigo and purple are associated with The Medullar Chakra. Wear indigo clothing and the gemstones Lapis Lazuli, deep Tanzanite, and Amethyst. (Amethyst calms the mind, enhances mental activity, and amplifies thought, increasing intuition.)

Eat organic blueberries, blackberries, and purple grapes. Drink R.W.KNUDSEN “Just Concord.” Grapes benefit the eyes, intestinal track, blood, and brain. They cleanse the liver and kidneys, and grapes can lift your spirits–an emotional and spiritual benefit.

Inspiration #3366 (5-ml at $79.28, retail) was used by the native people of North America, Arabia, and India to enhance meditation and spirituality. Diffuse for inspiration and to create a spiritual environment. Topically apply to the forehead and crown.

Diffused during the day, Dream Catcher #3330 (15-ml at $94.74 or $77.00 member price) can help meditation and help you visualize your dreams. It has also been used to keep bad dreams away. Topically, it can be applied to your forehead, ears, throat, eyebrows or neck. Let those positive dreams shine through! Diffused at night, Z-z-z-z…) https://www.myyl.com/4wholeness
