There are varying degrees of health or wellness and when one is feeling joyful in the moment, filled with "light" and looking forward to the future, one can be said to be in a state of good health or wellbeing; that is, feeling well across the totality of one's being. Often wellness, true wellness, means feeling good physically, emotionally and mentally, along with being spiritually connected.
In Spiritual Response Therapy, we seek SPIRIT first and all healing follows from that realisation, realisation of the healing power within, the God force.
According to my High Self, the normal vibratory rate of a healthy person is 4,500 Hz (or cycles per second). Anything that lowers the vibration sufficiently will open a person to lower energies, whether that be a "lower" thought form, or a particular energy, such as a discarnate whose normal vibration is between 600 to 700 Hz.
The average vibration has more than doubled since 1988, just over twenty years ago, when Reverend Robert Detzler, founder of the SRT system of healing, indicated that the vibratory rate was just 2,100 Hz. As we continue to collectively raise our consciousness and become more self-aware, all of our subtle bodies are naturally spinning at a faster rate.
Many things can cause our normal, healthy vibration to drop and cause our energies to dissipate. For example, most types of fear-based emotions such as anger, grief, shock, unforgiveness, blame and hate will dramatically lower auric vibrations and sap our natural life force energy from us. Conflict, whether inner or outer, will also cause us to feel depleted.
Places where there is much illness, suffering and death, such as cemeteries, funerals, memorial services, and hospitals can further drain one's vital health, especially if one is open to lower energies. It is therefore useful to be mindful of one's physical, emotional and mental wellbeing before visiting such places or attending such events. Prayer, and asking for protection, is a very useful and appropriate way to stay clear.
Someone who has learnt SRT, or another form of space clearing and protection, will be able to keep themselves clear through setting up a triple and fire shield of protection, as well as asking SPIRIT to clear the intended visiting place of all shadow energies.
Energy follows thought. This is called the Law of Mind Action and is closely aligned with the Law of Attraction which says that wherever we place our attention, we will draw the essence of that vibration to us, if we hold it long enough. Hence, it is very important to be mindful of one's thoughts (intention) and where one is placing one's attention.
Our chakra system (composed of seven energy centres) is a dynamic one, pulling in energies from the outside world, which we then respond to given our perception about life, our model of the world. The faster the rate of spin, the more quickly energies will be drawn to us. Someone of lower consciousness generally has a lower rate of spin and that is good, because it is a safeguard for that person and for the others around him/her.
For those of us engaged in energy work, the necessity of mindfulness becomes even greater. Taking a Reiki attunement during a Reiki class will activate one or more chakras and raise the normal vibratory rate for the individual. My High Self has indicated that my rate jumped to 12-13,000 Hz after taking Reiki First Degree. After taking the Reiki Masters, it jumped to 17,000 Hz. After taking the Advanced SRT Class, it jumped to 23,000 Hz...
Shifts in vibration will always vary according to the personal energy makeup of the individual and their degree of readiness to further embrace SPIRIT.
I have been practising an enormous amount of energy work for almost five years, which I thoroughly enjoy, and SPIRIT now shares with me that my normal healthy vibratory rate sits comfortably at 28,000 Hz. When performing a SRT clearing for a client, the subtle bodies spin at 45,000 Hz.
Last year I was blessed to attend a Flower of Life workshop in Scotland, run by Anne Ward, which dealt with the sacred geometries within, through and around the physical body. When peforming the sacred Merkaba (or Mer-Ka-Ba) meditation, which works with the Higher Self and conscious intent, each of us attending the workshop asked that the star tetrahedons surrounding the physical body (the interpenetrating form of the sun and the earth tetrahedrons around the physical body) spin at 9⁄10 of the speed of light, which SPIRIT says is 36,000 Hz.
SPIRIT has revealed that at 40,000 Hz the auric vibrations have already reached the speed of light. SPIRIT has indicated that the maximum spinning rate for anyone incarnated into the physical plane is 70,000 Hz - anything above that will lead to brain damage!This "quickening" is available to anyone who wishes to practise energy work and integrate this into their daily lives. The result is that energy flows more quickly through the mind-body and that the results of one's manifestation are much faster than before.
In reality, there is no separation from the outside world because wherever we place our consciousness, we merge with that part of the quantum field. However, we experience that we are separate because of the unique illusion we have chosen to experience. We have placed ourselves in a physical body to experience time and space and there is a delay, or gap, between our thoughts and the natural outcome of those thoughts.
As an individual quickens their vibration, the invitation is to be absolutely present in one's daily life and notice the subtle stream of thoughts that surface from the unconscious, along with any reactions to situations and events.
Last year, in 2008, my wife and I went to the Rocky Mountains to study with Jonathan Goldman at the Healing Sounds Intensive. About a month before, my left ear became clogged with wax and I found myself in a state of bother. I did clearing around it, used Reiki, and my wife also gave me some wonderful Reflexology treatments.
As a result of the energy healing, the wax became much less compacted in my ear and stopped hurting me as much. However, I was still partially deaf and it was proving difficult to hear properly, as well as remain emotionally balanced throughout the day. I eventually visited my doctor two weeks before I left for the USA who was kind enough to syringe my ear and clear the blockage.
Interestingly enough, the "problem" resurfaced this year whilst teaching a Reiki Master Practitioner course over the weekend of the Summer Solstice (in June). My left ear suddenly blocked again and I found myself back to square one.
And yet, it did not feel like square one. I did not feel as helpless or frustrated as the previous time. I felt more empowered than before and I had a deep realisation that mechanical fixes were not going to provide me with the healing I needed. Confirmation that outer fixes would not work were confirmed when hopi ear candling did not bring much relief.
I was being provided with an opportunity to walk my talk once again.
High Self informed me that visiting the doctors would result in a block to grace, so I decided that under no circumstances was I going to visit the doctors. Once I had made that internal decision, I felt no inner conflict or doubt and could concentrate on maintaining my focus.
A little while ago, I had been told by another doctor that some people have "narrow ear canal" sydrome. This sounded like a purely conscious mind interpretation of an energetic problem and did not resonate with me at all, further strenthening my commitment to resolve this through energy work.
Every morning, I would begin with clearing and healing of the ear working with High Self. I set up a contract with High Self to clear the blockage and download vibrational healing throughout each day, which is standard practice for SRT Practitioners, and invoked sacred energies whilst journeying inwardly to "tone" the ear canals, inner and outer.
I found myself moving deeper into my head space than I had ever done before and could actually feel the vibrations of the sound gently breaking up the ear wax and gently stimulating the ear canals. It was an amazing experience and inspired me to maintain my "vision" of clear hearing. I easily remembered the feeling of what it was like to have clear hearing and envisaged the ear popping.
A week went by, and still the ear was blocked, so I had more work to do. I reminded myself that the key was not to self-sabotage by worrying; only a mind which does not know its relationship to the Divine worries. I actually started to enjoy the experience of having a partially blocked ear, in a funny way.
I checked daily with High Self to make sure my faith was operating at 100% and that my doubt was at 0%, ensuring maximum openness to healing. I also repeated clearing and releasing statements to bring my conscious mind into alignment with my desire for perfect hearing, KNOWING that it was possible. I didn't just believe, I knew it to be a truth that had already manifested somewhere in the quantum field.
If we choose "healing", we will always be in a state of healing. I asked knowing that I had already healed.
Research has shown that the brain cannot distinguish between actually doing something and imagining doing something - exactly the same parts of the brain "light up", there is no difference! I reminded myself of this to buoy my faith and continued to marry thought and feeling. If ever I felt resistance to my desire, I stopped. What we resist, persists.
I also knew that by toning my ears and all my chakras, my brain was actually powerfully changing its state and having a direct impact on my auditory and visual system.
During my time in meditation, I realised and accepted that I had unwittingly called to myself this loss of hearing because I deeply disliked the general noise along the main road near my home, especially the use of sirens late at night. I found them to be extemely piercing and would react very negatively by tensing up whenever the police cars or ambulances would drive past. In effect, I was unconsciously sending myself the message that I did not want to hear those sounds and that I wanted to block them out.
So my body simply obeyed my command... and the net effect was the build up of wax in my receptive ear. As mentioned before, the quicker one's vibration, the more "responsible" one is for one's thoughts.
I kept my faith high, recognising and giving thanks for the innate healing intelligence of my body, as well as all of the miracles I have seen many times during my time as a healer and teacher. I released all need and desire to block out sounds and my judgements about those sounds and I affirmed that my body knew how to heal itself.
I said the following prayer several times a day, which I adapted from Doreen Virtue's book "The Lightworker's Way" and which I have found very useful during illness.
"There is no truth, life, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is Divine Mind and its Divine manifestation for GOD is the All-in All. SPIRIT is immortal truth, matter is mortal error. SPIRIT is the real and eternal, matter is the unreal and temporal. SPIRIT is GOD and man is made in his image and likeness, therefore man is not material but spiritual. Therefore, I am not material, I am a spiritual being made in the image and likeness of GOD, the All-That-Is. This condition is material and is already healed in the Mind of GOD."
I would invite you to remember it, make it your own and say it whenever you are unwell. As a statement of highest truth, it can bring forth miracles.
After three weeks, my ear cleared and the wax "disappeared". I had perfect hearing again, and I still have perfect hearing and the knowing that I can heal myself.
I invite you to be fluid in your consciousness and thought, to know you are more than just blood and tissue. As you raise your awareness of Self, you will naturally begin to vibrate at a higher rate and call to yourself more and more circumstances that will help you remember Who You Really Are and your Divine Purpose.
If we can let go of our limiting ideas and beliefs, we will have greater access to the unlimited power and potential that is within us all.
