Some people will know that somebody close to me passed away early 2011. She was a good friend and had a profound effect on my life and helped me along my journey to become the person I am today. The day she passed was an important day in helping me to open my mind to possibilities that I hadn’t really investigated seriously prior to then. The day she passed away I was climbing at the indoor wall in Warrington. Climbing is something I had recently discovered that I loved. That day however I was beset by a feeling of foreboding. A feeling that something was going to happen. This resulted in a couple of pauses for tea & cake, re checking all knots more than once before each climb and sticking to the easier climbs. Eventually we closed the session earlier than usual and headed home. Arriving home I received a phone call to tell me that my friend had passed, she’d not woken up from the nights sleep.
This was my first real opening to the world of connection. The realization that I had known that something was wrong with my world. My intuition telling me that something was amiss with energy matrix that connects us all. However I tried to reason away with logic that I couldn’t have known. My climbing partner and I were shocked by not only my friends passing, but also the feeling that somehow I had ‘known’. Obviously I had experienced ‘gut feelings’ and intuition but this was more than that.
We all have thought of a friend to have them call us, just be talking of somebody and we happen to meet them. Coincidence can often be more than mere coincidence. There is more evidence from the scientific world that the universal energy matrix that many spiritual and religious ideas have referred to..is the only way to truly explain this connection. This idea that energy vibrations are the explanation of life, the universe and everything…is only slightly more understandable than the number 42 😉
Can we accept this connection, work with our own energy. Our level of vibration to feel more open, more connected. Can yoga and the practice of meditation be the key which opens our hearts to feeling. Is being open to feeling the way to develop this connection. Is developing this connection into something we can deepen into communication rather than inexplicable feelings? As one of my friends said recently..he used to think that psychics were all just empty words and now he was opening to this connection he was understanding that some people are understanding and interpreting what they see in the matrix (the universal oneness that connects us all like a web of vibrating energy). That they are more open to seeing beyond the immediately obvious to that which is more subtle. Can we all learn this skill or is it a talent you are born with? After all our other senses…seeing, hearing, tasting, touching and smell are all founded upon frequency dependence and vibrations.
Einstein was aware of this when he said “reality is just an illusion”and that “A human being is part of the whole called by us universe , a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty…We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive.”
So I am now working on raising my spiritual vibration to allow myself to open to possibility. To open to feeling, to knowing and to hoping that more is possible than what the simple explanation would have us believe. Our minds are not able to perceive all that we know is there, such as the size of the universe or the distance of the stars. Hence how can we expect to understand or comprehend other possibilities with the small capacity of our minds. All we can do is not close our mind to these possibilities. To explore with a sense of wonder and a sense of fun. To be aware of what we know is possible..Intuition, coincidence, connection and to hope that somewhere over the rainbow we will find more…“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” – Albert Einstein
