Recalibration is a process of alignment with our inner source presence. We are constantly evolving, perpetually moving through natural cycles, through phases. Cycles require that we generate energy and balance forces if we wish to transform in a forward progression amidst the chaos. In this time of hi-tech information overload, so wrought with great change and acceleration, we must be both adaptable and flexible.
While the ego or undisciplined mind may keep us on lock down, in fear, creating confusion, unable to let go of past behaviors, beliefs, and patterns, the spirit has the intelligence to know which pathway to follow.
Silence. Solitude. A sense of freedom to move and explore in other directions. Self-reflection. Sound needed? Yes. The process of emptying oneself, to drop down into the void, into the vast nothingness is not to be feared. Change includes deep recalibration of our bodies, which may be intensely physical, mental or emotional, and changes can be embraced or feared, depending on one's willingness to adapt and move forward.
To balance, integrate, and unify energies within one's life and in one's body is to conduct our life through understanding that we are interconnected with all things in every way. Digging deeply, to access the Self, inquiring into the areas where we can bring balance, guides us to rid ourselves of harmful blockages, allowing the body's energetic balance to be restored – permitting growth, health, and restoration.
Ask questions & Reflect. . .
Simply be curious. Let your judgmental mind take a rest. Embrace present-moment awareness and trust the process. Sit comfortably with back straight and feet touching the floor. Partially close your eyes and turn your attention inward. Let your attention follow your breath, settle your conscious awareness inside your body, letting the external world fall away:
Learning where and how to look, and listening is key for navigating.
Reflection is simply sitting with oneself. . . taking time to be, without needing to have answers, without judging, without evaluating, but simply being. Letting go. Allowing thoughts to come and go like clouds in the sky. Seeing them pass, just noticing, becoming aware of what's inside. The tough part is not acting upon our thoughts, not going into the story, not trying to solve problems.
If I can notice that I am feeling a bit anxious or blue, most likely I am spiritually misaligned.
Alignment is easy. It's like tuning an instrument. It's as easy as making up your mind for what you want. When I'm tired of having things feel and sound out of tune, when I'm ready to make order and feel better, I'm more willing to take action. Once I commit to taking action, change is not only possible, but it's likely to stick.
We are meant to be in alignment. Our primary alignment is with God as it is He who created this life for us. He feels put off when we choose to live life without the thought of Him, without respect and appreciation for what He has created. He offers us his Will for understanding and for stepping into our purpose. He also allows us to make our own choices and to learn our lessons the hard way – for hitting rock bottom is the way many of us must fall before asking for help.
When we feel purposeful, we feel alive. Our inner GPS is at the heart center. It is easy to get out of sync with our heart's desire.
While our physical body parts can have varying degrees of embodied spiritual intelligence, our ultimate goal is to reconnect every body part, every organ, every gland and all cellular tissue fully to our One God Spirit energies or breath.
The heart communicates and links to the God Spirit or breath, and is the ruler of the body, controlling the balance between all the other organ systems and the hormonal systems. When we are centered in our heart with quiet awareness, with loving kindness, harmony is created in our being at all levels: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. The heart generates the largest electromagnetic field in the body, thousands of times stronger than that produced by the brain. The energetic counterpart is the Small Intestine.
The Kidney Soul (Water) – circulates vital essence and is the center that manages bodily fluids. If not following the heart/spirit but instead is controlled by the mind, the kidney becomes gripped in fear which can cause a disposition for panic attacks and fearful behavior. Addiction sets into the energetic center when the kidney relinquishes its control over the bodily essence from fear. The energetic counterpart is the Urinary Bladder.
The Spleen Soul (Earth) – when healthy, the spleen purifies the blood. Everything is recorded in the body and the spleen. Its higher function is to infuse our blood with spiritual light. As our blood purifies, the heart, soul and body are purified into the House of God, where Christ can dwell. The spleen tells the pancreas what the stomach is required to digest. The counterpart is the Stomach.
The Lungs Soul (Aether) – all bodily life force has its physical origin in the lung. The large intestine is the bowel associated with the lung. Both the lungs and large intestine will harbor grief or blockages from a refusal to let go of the past, or from regrets or pain. To move forward into transformation with the ease of feeling supported by Spirit requires the development of the ease of the breath. Taking deep abdominal breaths opens the Lungs Soul gateway to support embodied knowing and the ability to move on from deep and painful patterns. The energetic counterpart is the Large Intestine.
The Liver Soul (Air) – stores and reads the blood. When awake and moving around, the blood is distributed throughout the body, when at rest, the blood returns to the liver. The Liver Soul is the seat of the spiritual purpose and gives us the ability to discern our path, to stay clear in our direction and to be true to ourselves. When disturbed, we often feel angry and experience life as one injustice after another. When the spiritual purpose is not being expressed, the Liver will become depressed. It is crucial to clear the body and mind of toxic substances and to recognize alcohol and mind-altering drugs as potent soul disturbing influences. Letting go of self-destructive behaviors such as anger and doing liver cleansing with herbs are potent ways to heal. The Liver's counterpart is the Gallbladder.
In just a few minutes we can catch our breath, find balance and grounding in order to reconnect with the Self and feel ourselves right back on track – newly refreshed, rejuvenated, and hopeful.
The Breath-Life Force or Chi is the natural energy of the universe, found in everything. Chi has many different colors and frequencies. Obtaining healthy life force flow through the body through breath-work, chakra focus, mental concentration, group intention, yoga, Qi Gong, or meditation helps us become more in tune with the energy flow and colors all around, allowing us to flow with life instead of resist. Consistent effort and practice directing life force Chi has positive effects, empowering us with more life force for our use, ceasing us to require energies from other things.
The breath is our ally. It's our calming force, the nurturer, the Holy Spirit. Consciously breathing for three deep breaths is all you really need for a quick re-set. On the inhalation you can say, “rise,” and on the long, soft exhalation through the lips you can say, “fall.” Labelling helps the mind stay on task, without thought, instead working to focus on the breath. After enjoying three deep breaths, you can return to normal breathing, simply staying aware of your breath.
You may continue mentally reciting, “rise” . . . “fall” . . . if you need help focusing. Otherwise, simply breathe and when a thought comes, acknowledge it. Say you're planning your shopping list, just notice and label it, “planning.” Maybe you're stewing over a fight you had with your spouse? Label, "remembering." Or you're concerned about your newly licensed son's first driving experience to the shore with some friends? That's ok. Simply notice, mentally recite, “worry.” The brain just needs to label so it can move on. The better able you are to notice and label thoughts, the quicker the brain will assist you in returning to your breath.
The breath helps us to feel calm, centered, and grounded – willing and ready to work.
