Embracing All That Is
The elements that created you are the same components and energy that permeate everything. In fact, I posit that you are the creative force behind your own existence–”it’s all you.” The Big Book of You is a work of love that has been formulating for more than two decades. It is a result of my spiritual explorations over that time period, including the learnings, experiences and understandings I have gained. I arrived at the conclusion written here with this artwork: “You are all there is.” My journey and spiritual path have led me to this understanding.
The book is divided into two sections. The left-hand pages remind you of all that you are, the light and the dark. The right-hand pages deliver additional spiritual insights and theories I have developed, quotations from renowned individuals from history and modern times as well as further explanations of the ideas about “what you are.” You can read the left-hand pages only, or you can read just the right-hand pages; you can also read this as a normal book, from left to right.
We Are All Reflections
I believe that we are each the sum total of our surroundings. We had a hand in creating all that is in our purview, which includes, war, disease, famine, joy, wealth and love. Every time you open your eyes, you witness the reflection of you. You see this reflection in the eyes of your colleagues, friends, neighbors, celebrities, politicians, the cable guy, the grocery clerk, even the IRS guy, and, of course, your beloved pets. Think about this–I am you speaking to you. You are reading this right now because a part of you created the moment to hear about this book. In fact, as I type this, it is a creation in your own mind to receive this information. You had a hand in creating it because you wanted this information, so I am an aspect of you that is looking to experience what you already know. Freaky, huh? Whether you accept the ideas presented in this book or not, my hope is that, if nothing else, the book will make you think and pause to reflect on your own life, and to remember that you truly are a spectacular being that deserves to find joy, laughter and a fulfilled life, always. There is a divine plan for your life that is beyond your wildest imagination. Also remember that you are part of the all, part of the whole of mankind, including what is created out of the soup of humanness and the habits of humanity. As part of that human infrastructure, you can make a difference. If everything around you is a reflection of you, then you too are part of that reflection, mirroring
back to others the energy of perceived “good” and “bad.” So I leave you with a question:
“In the eyes of those around you, how does your reflection contribute to the world?”
Exploring the Body
Success/failure, poverty/abundance–there is a razor’s edge between these dualities. In each moment we are seconds away from pleasure or agony. How do you cope with these experiences? As a healer, one thing I have noticed in working with so many souls (and their bodies) is that the body encapsulates every emotion and each of these dualities. My specialization is healing trauma. I see trauma at the foundation of every symptom and disease. At the core of the trauma is a thought. It was the thought that occurred at the moment of the traumatic event that got locked into the body’s tissue. The trauma is now an irritation and creates an energy block. Like a boulder that falls into a river the qui/ energy stream of the body has to find its way around this obstacle. This shows up as psychological workarounds (denial, procrastination, self-sabotage) and, in most instances, eventually shows up as pain and physical dis-ease. The whole purpose of this book is to explore the shadow, the darker emotions, for it is in those dark places where the light can shine brightest. Exploring all your feelings allows for release of old irrelevant trauma and the opening for new levels of lightness, ease and grace. The body is the best place to explore to find if you are holding back flow in your life. It can serve as the most important barometer of health and happiness. By checking in with your body, going inside and simply observing energy, sensation and feeling states, you can find those lost moments of trauma that are causing you to work around your own energy. Then you can clear them to lighten your spiritual (and physical) load.
In quantum physics, “the observer effect” refers to changes that the act of observing will make on the phenomenon being observed. In the healing process, this translates to observing, or appreciating your energetic system as it expresses itself. As you watch the energetic movement of the blocks and releases, the body knows that you are paying attention and alters and reorganizes into a new system or pattern of renewed health and balance. Within these patterns are the old feelings and beliefs that, once acknowledged, can change into new found harmony. The safest place on the planet is always in your own body. Many of us souls, through trauma or even spiritual practices, have left our bodies to one degree or another. Go inside whenever you can, explore what is there. It offers the gift of memories and spiritual exploration resulting in clearing the old debris and re-patterning into more openness, intimacy and flow. When you are in flow, what I call “the zone,” you can actually feel all the possibilities that are available to you. The time is now… go inside and take a look.
“Good for the body is the work of the body, good for the soul the work of the soul, and good for either the work of the other.” – Henry David Thoreau
