Every individual is unique and the variations in their lives and life choices are physical manifestations of the distinctive energy, essence, and disposition they possess.  When an individual is searching for mental and emotional healing modalities, there is a need for therapy that is personal, effective, cost efficient, and uplifting so the person can move forward with their life in a positive way; emotional freedom techniques (EFT) surpass those expectations.

What Is EFT?

EFT is rooted in energy psychology, applying Ancient Chinese medicine theology, which focuses on the body’s energy grid.  The energy grid utilizes pathways and nodal points through which your chi, or life force, flows.  This theory states a traumatic event, negative psychological conditioning, or other experiences can cause a disruption in your energy flow through a blockage or imbalance, prohibiting the proper flow of chi; when your chi is imbalanced or blocked, mental and emotional illnesses, disorders, and issues will arise.

Gary Craig, the founder of the EFT technique, discovered by employing these medicinal philosophies, you would be able to tap specific acupressure points, the meridian or nodal points on the body’s energy grid, releasing the blockage and bringing your body’s energy flow back into a state of homeostasis.

However, EFT doesn’t just make use of acupressure point stimulation; this technique incorporates other psychotherapies already being used in conventional cognitive behavioral therapies, such as relaxation and memory recall, causing a long term cognitive restructuring within the brain.

When your brain reconstructs its cognitive processes, you no longer process thoughts or emotions the way you did before, meaning you can nullify the negative feelings or reactions you currently have, or have had for years, resulting in a neutral reaction to the same memory or situation when successfully employing EFT.

What The Research Says

EFT has proven to be a useful technique for a wide variety of disorders or illnesses; in various studies, EFT has successfully treated anxiety disorders, depression, hostility, aggression, posttraumatic stress disorder, addictions, phobias, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorders, panic, attention deficit disorder, hypertension, social anxiety, career issues, and somatoform disorders.  EFT also has improved colds, headaches, joint pains, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, rashes, lower cortisol levels, irritable bowel syndrome, and fibromyalgia.  Let’s take a look at some of these studies and experiments a little closer.

In a case study cited by Feinstein (2010), a 52 year old woman with stage IV breast cancer decided against conventional medicine interventions and instead used EFT on numerous personal issues that surfaced after she was diagnosed.  The patient received six clinical EFT tapping sessions, lasting 60 to 90 minutes in length, then continued to use the methods daily until a follow up examination eight months after the diagnosis; the appointment revealed no trace of cancer, but some scar tissue where the cancer had been (Feinstein et al., 2010).

Stapleton, Sheldon, Porter, and Whitty (2011) conducted a randomized clinical trial on the effects EFT exerted over food cravings, the perceived power of food, psychological symptoms, and will power of 96 overweight and obese adults.  When the researchers initially retested the participants, immediately after receiving their EFT treatment, the participants had significant reductions in food cravings, food wielded less power over the participants, and will power was improved.  The improvements in cravings and the power of food were maintained at the six month follow-up.

Another randomized controlled study performed by Church, Brooks, and DeAsis (2012) with 30 first-year psychology students scoring in the moderate to severely depressed ranges on the Beck Depression Inventory.  The participants in the experimental group received four EFT sessions of 90 minutes; the treatment proved to be both clinically and statistically significant, as the average post treatment depression score of the EFT condition group resulted in not depressed.

In a controlled pilot study by Benor, Ledger, Toussaint, and Hett (2009) with Canadian college students with severe to moderate test anxiety, EFT accomplished benefits equal to that of five cognitive behavioral therapy sessions.

Click here for images of brain scans from an experiment by Andrade and Feinstein (2004) using EFT treatments for participants with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD); these scans show the average brain scan procession over a course of four weeks with twelve sessions of EFT.  The first scan is what an ideal brain scan looks like and the second scan is the average scan of the participants with (GAD) before they began EFT sessions; the brain scans progress toward their natural or ideal homeostasis state through EFT, reducing dysfunctional brain wave frequencies.

This study contrasted EFT with cognitive behavioral therapy, combined with medication when necessary, as a control mechanism.  The EFT participants were more likely to maintain their new functional brain wave patterns compared to the cognitive behavioral group.  Moreover, Andrade and Feinstein (2004) noted people treated with antianxiety medications did reduce their anxiety symptoms, but their brain scans maintained brain wave frequency dysfunction, implying the medication acts as a cosmetic layer without actually addressing the real issue(s).

How It Works

The research shows you the beginnings of the wide applications for EFT, but I want to explain to you why and how it works because there are several stratums to consider.  The first level we will consider is the electroconductivity of the human body, then epigenetics, and finally the cognitive restructuring process.

© Nahhan

Your body is a beautiful and amazing transmitter and receiver of energy as represented by its electromagnetic field.  The human body produces electromagnetic fields with cells and tissues that can be measured on the skin, while all of our organs produce biomagnetic energy.

Within these energy fields, diseases and disturbances can often be measured before their physical symptoms can be detected.   EFT literally taps into these specific energy fields to redirect their flow in a proper, balanced manner, alleviating electromagnetic and biomagnetic fields of disturbances and blocks.

Epigenetics is a subfield of genetic research, exposing an inherent variability within genetic expression previously thought impossible.  Your DNA does not actually come with a concrete, inflexible blueprint dictating your every thought, action, and countenance; conversely, it is a vast set of probabilities, combining information from your default genetic expression, your thoughts, your beliefs, your behaviors, and your environmental and biochemical influences.

All of these inputs interact on the cellular level, communicating with the entirety of your body about the information received,responding by activating or deactivating the potentials within your unique genetic expression.  This is why over time identical twins, people born with duplicate DNA, begin to look different; each individual has their own experiences, psychology, and environmental exposures offering an alternative expression of active and inactive genetic potentials.

As epigenetics proves genetic and cellular expression is affected by conscious thought and behavioral inputs, EFT offers somatic and cognitive inputs that activate positive, balanced potentials, while deactivating genetic potentials expressing imbalance and harm.

Researchers and practitioners assert the physical activity with the activation of mental processes alters the targeted response because the stimulation of acupressure points transmits signals to the amygdala and related brain structures, reducing hyperarousal to the given stimulus or memory; the brain then reconsolidates the memory, cognition, feeling, or mental picture, while the newly reduced or absent hyperarousal is retained as the new reaction to the initial stimuli (Feinstein, 2008).

Ruden (2010) asserts EFT techniques focusing on stress-producing cues, such as fear or traumatic memories, depotentiate the neural pathways maintaining maladaptive conditioned responses; this means the EFT techniques recode the conditioned responses that produce ill effects with desired behaviors or feelings.  This creates a cognitive restructuring of the brain, so old paradigms no longer regulate your responses.

The Process

© Davinci

There is a basic EFT procedure, consisting of tapping on each of eight energy meridian points while using an affirmation statement that coincides with a memory or a feeling.  The procession of tapping can vary depending on the therapist or practitioner you are working with, as can the affirmation statements.

Some practitioners use the industry standard, “Even though I have (or feel) this fear of rejection, I deeply and profoundly accept myself,” while other practitioners prefer a stream of consciousness dialogue.  With the latter method, you would tap as you say whatever comes to mind that you would like to work with, using a shorter phrase to repeat as you continue to tap on the proceeding points to reinforce the issue you are working on.

Even though the sequence of point tapping may vary, I am going to share with you what has worked for me, which also seems to be the most common.  As you repeat your chosen phrase or issue, you tap on your karate chop point, or the side of your hand, followed by the inside of your eyebrows, then the side of your eyes, the bone under your eyes, under the nose, between your lower lip and chin, then your collarbone point, under the arm, and then the top of the head.  This would conclude one repetition.

You want to be sure not to tap too hard.  You want to stimulate the meridians, but you do not want to cause bruising or pain.  Look at the following chart for a visual representation of the proper tapping points.

Church & Brooks, 2010

Where Can I Learn It?

There are several ways to learn or administer EFT, such as with the help of a therapist or a certified EFT practitioner in both group and individual settings.  If you are able, I suggest learning in a setting where you can have a certified EFT practitioner make sure you are accurately tapping your energy meridians.  Because this method is so quick and easy to learn, you do not have to pour money into endless sessions with an EFT therapist.  This is something you can do on your own, wherever and whenever you would like, empowering you in your health and healing.

There are also instructional DVDs you can use at home such as The Tapping Solutionand Project Tapping: Tapping Into Abundance With Dr. Carol Look.  These are great alternatives for those of you who live in areas where you do not have access to a certified EFT practitioner.

If you decide to learn or try EFT, I suggest staying well hydrated to increase your biological electroconductivity and to do one session right before you go to bed.  When you learn something new, or alter a pattern of thinking, and immediately go to sleep, you have several hours to integrate the new template in your brain without interruptions, resulting in a more effective and solidified change.

 Spiritual & Personal Implications

By successfully implementing EFT into your daily routine, you empower yourself to take control over your emotions, thoughts, and how you choose to experience your life.  Imagine eradicating irrational fears as they enter your consciousness or overcoming a traumatic event that has stifled some part of your life.

You no longer have to live captive to thought processes that do not serve your highest good or take medications that only serve as a temporary band aid while poisoning your system.  You would not have to try to suppress negative emotions or thoughts because as they enter your awareness, you can safely and painlessly extinguish them.

By bringing balance and inner peace to your life, you offer more balance and peace to the world.  Every energy field is interconnected, ebbing and flowing together to create an even larger field of energy.  By correcting your energy flow, you aid in balancing the whole.  You have the ability to heal yourself in many ways; EFT is quick, easy, cost effective, and encourages your unique zenith expression.

Source: The Ultimate Quantum Entanglement

Quantum Empowerment

2012-05-314

world webQuantum entanglement.  It’s a seemingly simple concept, but quantum entanglement conducts an infinite connective web across the universe, irrespective of time and space.  This quantum physics principle has not only been proven micro- and macroscopically, but has vast implications for humans!  The most important thing for you to know is quantum entanglement is already at work in every facet of your life.  We’re going to look at how this one principle affects everything you do, and how it connects you to your place of empowerment.

Universal Connections

As a quick recap from Quantum Empowerment 101, quantum entanglement is the universal force connecting you to anyone and anything you have ever been in contact with, regardless of space or time.  It is a process working in conjunction with nonlocality.

At first glance, we may consider this a somewhat limiting process.  If it required you background_128-ato be in contact with someone or something in order for a connection to form through quantum processing, then that probably connects you to thousands of people, right?  Not so much!  Let’s look at the beauteousness that is you.

As human biological systems, we are made of elements, atoms, compounds, and particles.  Primarily, we are made of hydrogen, carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen; even if we just consider these elements, each component has been part of the universe since the beginning of existence.  Whether these particles have existed as is, or have decayed from former identities into their newer versions, they have been a part of the universe for billions of years…if not more.

Can you imagine the immense amount of contact each of these particles making up your unique composition has had with other particles and compounds, let alone full-blown matter?  Let’s just say that’s trillions of connections!  Now let’s get really funky with it!

As human beings, we eat food for sustenance.  We require nutritional osmosis through ingestion in order to replenish our system.  This means we are absorbing more particles, compounds, and elements, creating more intricate universal connections: the soil your produce was grown in, the water it absorbed to grow, the sun rays which were absorbed for photosynthesis, and the list goes on.  These connections also apply to animal based products such as cheese, milk, meat, etc.  This is one example of the quote, “You are what you eat.”

DNA-Awakening-2012Now, consider your genetic composition.   You are the unique expression of a genetic blueprint.  The single-origin hypothesis supposes every human being comes from the same center in Africa.  This hypothesis is supported by experiments, which examined the craniofacial features of the major homosapien groups, as well as intricate DNA examinations (Hanihara, 1998; Harpending, Batzer, Gurven, Jorde, Rogers & Sherry, 1998; and Limar, 2011).  There was another study conducted by Harpending et. al (1998)  examining the nonrecombining component of the Y chromosome in mitochondrial DNA; this study indicated the origins of the human race originated from about 10,000 people, albeit non-region specific.  What does this mean?  Large portions of humans are connected through DNA transfers alone.

Combining the DNA connections with all of the other quantum entanglements, which have been collected billions of years before your consciousness entered physical vessel, and you have a tight knit weave of universal associations!

The Sacred Connection

Beyond the purely material connections we’ve made over the course of our existence, we have made divine energetic connections as well.  When our energy has connected with someone else’s, a quantumly entangled relationship occurs.  This is one reason why you may find connections to the same souls over lifetimes and dimensions.  But there’s something even more important to consider.

All of life comes from the infinite spark of Source, Creator, God, Goddess, or the Original Energy, whichever term you are most comfortable with.  Everything in existence is an expansion and fractal existence of the original, infinite Source.  Not only are you quantumly entangled with Source, you are a piece of Source with a direct connection to the expansive consciousness Source possesses. Quantum empowerment matrix

This connection is what allows you to develop your consciousness, to connect with your guides and other multidimensional beings, and to evolve your perspective into the vastness of Source’s omnipresent, omnipotent wisdom if you so choose.  The universe was created in a way that does not just allow, but commands an inseparable bond with one another, your planet, your universe, all of existence, and Source.  You are never alone.  You are never forsaken.  You are never left without the ability to connect with the answers for any dilemma you face or the lessons you need to learn.  You are simply, divinely loved because you are the spark of Source incarnate.

Entangled Empowerment

Earth connectedOnce you learn how to really own and use the quantum processes at work in your life, you step into a place I like to call Quantum Empowerment!  The zenith of Entangled Empowerment, a subset of Quantum Empowerment, results when you are able to perceive yourself, others, and world events from the perspective of Source.  Often, we call this place alignment.

When you are in alignment, you act from your most authentic essence.  Your ego is not striving for attention because it has become an accepted and integrated component of the beautiful being who is you, not something you argue with or fight against.  When you approach your life from divine, balanced alignment, then you are making decisions from a higher perspective, reducing the amount of resistance you experience.  Life becomes magical, helping you expand and integrate more of your divine essence, instead of being a chess game that’s missing half of the pieces, on a torn board, with the directions from Trouble.

Stay Tuned…

 In the next article, I will help show you ways to strengthen these connections and the quantum processes around you, as well as how you can use them to create the life you deserve and love.  Get ready!  You’re about to become quantumly empowered!

Synchronicity: The Coincidence Buster!

Quantum Empowerment

2012-05-314

Have you ever had a moment where everything seemed to fall into place magically? Have you ever thought about vetruvian-mans-energysomeone and then a day or two later they call you?  Or have you ever wanted something and then somehow it happened to fall into your lap?  If you have experienced anything like this, which maybe seemingly called coincidence, you have actually been experiencing synchronicity!

Synchronicity is a word that’s pretty common these days, but few people know what it is or how to use it.

In the New Age or lightworker community, synchronicities are used as markers of growth, divination, or instructions from the universe and/or our higher selves.

In other areas of the world, synchronicities are categorized as commonplace coincidences, which happen after a series of random events, just with interesting results…kind of like dominoes.

So What Is Synchronicity? 

Smoke trail in different colors Synchronicity is a byproduct of quantum systems; it is the physical manifestation or symbol for the efficiency of quantum alignment in your reality.

As we learned in Quantum Empowerment 101, quantum entanglement and nonlocality are two of the major founding principles of our reality.  These concepts create a beautiful, seamless pattern to human experience, allowing divine patterns to fill our daily lives, rendering every moment meaningful and purposeful.

Synchronicity was first conceptualized in recent history by psychologist Carl Jung; Jung used synchronicity to explain mental correlations between two different people, referring to two people thinking the same thing at the same time.  Mother’s intuition and twin bonds are common examples of synchronistic, nonlocal, quantumly entangled bonds.  However, synchronicity goes beyond mental correlations and can incorporate physical and energetic ramifications.

When you are experiencing sychronicities with another person, you may feel the same emotion, have the same pain in your body, have the same idea, or a host of other parallels exhibiting a connection with other human beings.  You can also experience synchronicities in other ways.

You may notice you happen to be in the right place at just the right time.  You can turn on a radio and hear the song you were just thinking about in your head.  You can receive numerical messages, such as 11:11, 555, 222, etc.  The possibilities are endless.

How Can I Use Synchronicity?

Synchronicities are meant to be an indicator of your alignment and a primer for your intuition.  Synchronicities ask oyou to pull your attention toward a situation or event, and ask you to delve into your inner knowing to glean a fuller understanding of the energies being presented.  Synchronicities bring you into the present moment and ask you to connect with your guidance.

When you ask a question to the universe, pay attention to what happens around you.  Many times, you’ll catch part of a conversation or a song that contains an answer or clue.

The synchronicities will allow you to be aware of your alignment.  If you are recognizing the synchronicities in your life and properly interpreting them, you are balanced and connected with your higher consciousness.  If you are misinterpreting synchronicities, or failing to notice them in your experience, it is likely your energy needs rebalanced, centered, grounded, and aligned.

Synchronicity is a powerful tool in your quantum empowerment journey, offering great insight into a higher realm perspective of your journey and your energetic contributions to your reality.  When you learn how to recognize, decipher, and meditate on these special communications to strengthen your intuitive connection with the synchronicities, you will notice life becoming increasingly magical and surprising.

Meet Our Newest Contributor: Positive PollyAnna

Interviews

Last month we started a new column here at Chakra Center called matrix2Quantum Empowerment.” It’s about becoming conscious of the forces at work in the Universe, how to powerfully manifest your reality, balance your left and right brain so you can self-actualize, and realizing your highest potential. Simply put, when you understand the “rules” of the matrix, you can create a magical life with astonishing experiences.

But these are Polly’s words, not mine. She’s the author of the Quantum Empowerment column, and our newest contributor. I asked Polly to stop by today to share a bit of her experience of awakening and give you a taste of her awesomeness:

Tell us a little bit about your Awakening? (What got you interested in all this spiritual/quantum/esoteric stuff?)

My Awakening was an interesting process.  I was born very open, in tune, and connected; my mom even tells me I was born smiling.  I knew from the time I was a child everyone and everything was connected.  I was also blatantly aware I was born to change the world.  I could tell the systems were broken and the people confused about reality; it definitely made me the “weird” kid in school.  I was interested in extraterrestrials, angels, and the supernatural, psychokinetic, and magical while other kids my age wanted to play with Barbies, ride bikes, and play tag.  To say I didn’t fit in would be an understatement!

As I grew, I tried to blend more.  I made the statement all the time that I didn’t feel human.  My teenage years allowed me to suppress my spiritual side because I was so focused on making my career ambitions a reality while trying to convince others I was worthy of their friendship.  I never stopped trying to make the world better though.  I was often a confidant or counselor for others, and stood up for people whom needed help.  I got involved in my community and tried to initiate change; however, I lived in an area where change was widely resisted…though, it never made me stop in my persistent efforts to change the lives of others for the better.

As I entered my college years, I experienced a grand Reawakening.  I couldn’t even tell you what initiated it other than I felt a strong need to explore.  I ended up having a very intense, violent awakening.  Many things came to me all at once and I had some negative energies and people toxifying my life at the time.  It was like someone had opened Pandora’s Box and I was the next open vessel for everything to occupy.  While it was scary and highly traumatic, it was one of the most important lessons in my life.  I learned my power and my worth, as well as discovering the strength I had over my experience.

Fast forward about four years and I underwent a second expansive butterflyReawakening!  This was when I realized I wasn’t originally human, which is why nothing made sense to me.  I also realized my life’s mission to change the world and help others was something I wanted to be more active about.  I had never before heard “New Age” terms and it felt like I had entered a big coming home party!

My interest in science was kind of an accident.  I was always blessed with a very strong left brain, as well as a tremendously expressive right brain.  My strongest subjects in school were math and anything artistic or creative.  Math was like a super fun game for me.  Almost like the ultimate puzzle!  When I was in college studying to be an actress, one of my professors tried to get me to switch to a math major.  Back then, I decided if acting didn’t work out, I would be a genetic engineer.  I knew genetics and math were really important; I also knew they were only a portion of the equation.

After my second Reawakening, I knew marrying the two would be where I could best serve.  I wanted to break down old paradigms of what “true spirituality” represented and offer new information to people, showing how science and spirituality work together, not against one another.  I started having more claircognizant moments where I could understand how everything worked and what it all represented.  When I would get these messages or downloads, I would research the information so I could support the message and share it with the public.  The more I researched, the more the puzzle pieces fit together and I felt the need to share the information with as many people as possible because it is so transformational.

Basically, I’m a magically etheric, psychologically interested intuitive, quantum physicist with epigenetic interests for manifesting peace, harmony, and higher dimensionality on Gaia while doing interdimensional work with astral and light realms.

The Quantum Consciousness Series came about during a claircognizant moment between sleeping and waking states; it is an online course I am teaching and co-creating with Charis Melina Brown.  It consists of four modules, each lasting two weeks, with each building on the previous module.  In the course, we teach the principles of quantum mechanics, epigenetics, and holographic systems; we show our students how to utilize these concepts in transformational ways during their daily lives.  It’s a great way to quiet the ego mind in order to reach the higher mind, expanding consciousness, bringing more of the physiological brain online, activating stronger coherence between the brain and the quantum consciousness field, creating greater manifestations, magical experiences, and increasing classical, emotive, and spiritual intelligences.  We use many different exercises to do this, combining the scientific with the spiritual to help people on their path of expansion and fulfillment.

What about the ‘Quantum Empowerment’ column? What kind of information can people look forward to?

Quantum Empowerment is all about becoming conscious of the forces at work in your life.  When you understand the “rules” of the matrix, you can create a magical life with astonishing experiences.  I will be presenting people with ways to come into their own power, how to Quantum empowerment matrixpowerfully manifest their reality, and how to balance their left and right brain so they can self-actualize, realizing their highest potential.  Moreover, we will talk about what it means to lead a quantumly empowered lifestyle.  How are you affected by the energies, people, animals, and objects around you?  How can you break victim mentality?  How can you activate your DNA on a biological and energetic level?  What are the ways you can expand your consciousness?  These are only some of the things I will be addressing with Quantum Empowerment.  It will cover a wide spectrum of information, all dedicated to helping people grow into their interdimensional, interconnected self and reality.

What is the Ultimate Dream for your life?

The Ultimate Dream for my life would include many facets, but overall would be illustrated by balance, love, joy, and fulfilling, healthy relationships while living my passions in a peaceful, more enlightened world.  I absolutely want to keep writing, both fiction and nonfiction.  I have three novel series developing in the etheric at the moment.  I want to eventually turn those novel series into television series as well.  All of the stories are interdimensional, spiritually based stories, focused on connecting with the reader in a way which helps heal past traumas and integrate higher dimensional knowledge into their experience, helping them expand their consciousness.  My goal is to eventually own a production company specializing in science fiction and fantasy film/television with spiritual messages where I can be involved with productions from concept to completion.

I want to continue educating people in an empowering way.  I eventually want to own a school, focusing on educating spiritually advanced children.  We would not only provide them with a premium intellectual education, but help them develop their intuition, energetic, and psychokinetic gifts.  It would be a holistic environment, revolutionizing the education system.

Aside from the career aspirations of my Ultimate Dream, I would love to continue on my path of integrating more light and aggrandizing into more of myself.  It would be wonderful to be surrounded by soul tribe and family with flourishing, balanced, healthy relationships while living a sustainable, quantum lifestyle!  Moreover, there would be peace on Gaia and there would be no such thing as hunger, poverty, or segregation.

What advice would you give to others who want to find their joy path but aren’t quite sure how to move forward?

My advice to anyone who is confused or concerned about how to move forward on their joy path is to become present in the moment, relax as much as you can, and love yourself with the understanding present momentthe answers are already within.  You are always exactly where you are supposed to be.  Take the moment to look around and decide what it is you’re learning from your current reality expression.  If you want to change it, make the decision to change it and focus on what you can do in the present.  Quiet yourself to listen for inspiration, follow your passions, and nourish your needs.  You are part of a Universe which rewards following your joy and living in a state of overall abundance; however, the Universe will never give you something you aren’t energetically activating and requesting.  When you follow your joy, you become conscious of your opportunities, your energy, and your reality can expand into a new, loving space to manifest the experiences you are wishing to experience.

There are a lot of “New Agey” words and phrases thrown around these days. What does The Shift mean to you?

The Shift to me speaks to entering a place of balance, cosmologically speaking, which strengthens the quantum principles governing our world, as well as reactivating latent DNA.  This means for the first time in thousands of years, people will have the ability to understand the power of their consciousness and supersede the preconceived notions of limitedness we are programmed to hold.  While I believe humans are always capable of transcendence, I think The Shift refers to an energetic ease of transcendence into greater, more loving paradigms with expanded consciousness.

What about Ascension?

Ascension, for me, is all about integrating your higher self into your physical body to become more of your true self.  I believe people can create any reality they want through Ascension and The Shift.  I believe when people reach an Ascended state, they can keep their physical bodies, transmute them into a light body, or choose to shed the physical for a pure energy body.  It all depends on the individual meaning of Ascension and what that unique energy desires.  The common denominator falls in Ascension coming through love, acceptance, integration, and expanded consciousness.

Anything else you want to share?

I have been on an amazing journey, thus far; I’ve experienced uncanny, magical things and met the most amazing, multidimensional people whom have showed me what it is to love myself.  I am coming into a place in my life where I am truly understanding what it means to accept all of myself, and living in a state of allowing.  I came from a past of severe abuse for the first 22 years of my life.  Most of it was nightmarish and I have been extremely lucky to have lived through all of it; however, I never doubted my connection and relationship to LoveHeals(2Source, nor did I ever believe the world was a bad place.  I have loved people for the sake of being able to realize they are an extension of who I was/am.  The new shift for me has been coming to the realization that I, myself, am loveable.  I had been rejected so long, I literally thought everyone perceived me as useless or disposable at worst and annoying or unworthy at best.  It has been a very long, arduous process for me to come into a place of self-love and self-acceptance.  I am finally understanding the people in my life serve as mirrors; with the amazing people flowing into my life, I am realizing they wouldn’t be in my experience unless they were a vibrational match, underlining the divinity within myself.  Coming into love is an amazing transformation because even though I’ve always showered others with love, I am finally allowing myself to live within it as well.

Quantum Empowerment 101

Quantum Empowerment, The Solar Plexus Chakra

Quantum Empowerment: An Introduction

Through the hustle and bustle of our day-to-day lives, we often forget to stop and check in with ourselves.  We are programmed not to ask why and to become complacent with what we are given.  However, I have discovered complacency breeds a diplomatic surrender of empowerment.  Quantum Empowerment is all about taking your power back by discovering, understanding, and mastering the principles of the Universe you interact with every day.

What is Quantum Empowerment?

Quantum Empowerment is the term I use to describe living a Powerful womanconscious, enlightened lifestyle.  Throughout my lifetime, I have heard countless amounts of people say, “What difference does one person make?  Even if I change, it doesn’t matter because everyone else is just going to do what they want to do.  I’m too old and too set in my ways to change now.”

I am here to let you know everything you do, think, and feel matters; but more importantly, I am going to show you ways to effectively take control of your life and craft your experiences in an expansive, evolved manner.  The first step to becoming quantumly empowered is to get informed.

Education

I have always been a strong proponent of education, but what I think is even more important than formal education is the unquenchable thirst and desire for knowledge.  When we learn the ways we function within our reality, we learn how to expertly craft the experience.

That doesn’t necessarily mean life becomes hiccup free, as we all discover the lessons of our experience in a variety of ways.  Nevertheless, life’s bends in the road become much more manageable when we are aware of how everything works.

It’s similar to baking a cake; if you don’t have the recipe, you can still make the cake, but you’re probably going to have many more mishaps than if you’d had the directions from the beginning.  The best way to become empowered is to dive in and research…with discernment.

Founding Principles

There are two primary quantum mechanics principles I have found to be inescapable in the explanation of any type of phenomena or interaction: quantum entanglement and nonlocality.

Quantum entanglement is the quantum principle through which atoms, cells, objects, and living organisms cannot be separated.  quantum-entanglementNothing is free of quantum entanglement.  Things which are quantumly entangled should have, at some point in history, shared a link, common origin, or communication.  Because atoms, cells, and physiological architecture can all be traced to the same root source, especially human DNA, quantum entanglement permeates our entire existence.  This means every piece of existence affects one another in a profound, instantaneous way with every thought form, feeling, or action.  The physical manifestations of these connections are what we usually notice, but the energetic interplay is far more significant.

Nonlocality is another principle of quantum mechanics, exposing space and time for its true illusory nature.  Nonlocality works in tandem with quantum entanglement, connecting particles, creatures, and consciousness, irrespective of the third dimensional perspective of space-time limitations.  This means a quantumly entangled particle from 2012 can simultaneously affect its counterpart in 1984.

The First Step to Quantum Empowerment

Once you understand what these principles are, you are ready to start observing how they are active in your life.  We often use the word synchronicity as a way to denote divine energetic experiences, proving alignment with Source, our higher self, God, or whatever term you would like to use.  These are more than happenstances; these experiences are expertly crafted to give us important messages, at important junctures.  Interestingly, synchronicities are directly linked with quantum mechanics; when you experience a synchronicity, you are witnessing how quantum mechanics works in your life.

For example, let’s say all morning long you were craving apples, but apples aren’t something you usually eat or crave.  Your thought about apples created a potent energetic thought form, which is then sent to the consciousness field with a direct resonance.  Your law-of-attraction-and-quantum-physics significant other shows up right before you’re getting ready to prepare dinner, long after your craving has ceased.  You notice one arm happens to be carrying a bag of apples.  When you ask you significant other why they picked up apples, they reply, “Well, I was driving home from work and there was an accident on the highway.  I decided to take the scenic route.  I drove past this amazing apple farm having an apple sale.  I normally wouldn’t stop, but I felt like I needed to get some apples.”

This is an example of a common synchronistic, quantumly empowered experience.  On a physics and energetic level, you had been creating a distinct frequency output, which then affected your partner, with whom you are quantumly entangled, in a nonlocal way.

These events happen in your life all of the time.  When you begin to pay attention to when, where, why, and how they happen, you will begin to notice a pattern emerge; the pattern is your divine, energetic influence blueprint.  Recognizing this pattern is a monumental step in consciously utilizing your specific sphere of influence over the principles at work in your life in order to manifest the life you’ve been waiting for.
