The challenge we have in this life is to understand who we are and who God is in relation to us. We know we have a Spirit or Soul that comes in with us when we are born and leaves when we die. Our Spirit or Soul is the piece of God`s Spirit that gives us a connection to the Creator. Jesus told us that we need to be born again or spiritually connect to God, if we want a meaningful life. However, God will never force himself or herself on anyone. We have to seek the special connection of our Spirit with the Spirit of God. We wander through life seeking a reason for being on this earth. Connecting to God gives you the answer.
Our Western religions were based on the patriarch, Abraham who established Judaism, Islam and Christianity. Unfortunately, a patriarchal system arose where the only voices heard over thousands of years was male energy which dominated religion, politics and business. The masculine energy is associated with the left brain which looks at everything from an analytical point. The right brain is associated with feminine energy or the creative and heart feeling of the person. Even today left brain, masculine energy still predominates our institutions but we are starting to see breakthroughs in feminine energy rising in importance.
In the Old Testament we see God as the Spirit who emphasized the masculine, left brain thinking, representing rules and regulations for living. In the New Testament we see the feminine energy of God coming through in Jesus. His teachings emphasized the importance of not only love through right brain connections with all people but still supporting a left brain, masculine energy approach to life. God was asking us to be balanced individuals using both left brain masculine energy and right brain feminine energy to live our lives. So, what is our answer to living in this complex and often challenging world.
As was mentioned at the beginning, we must establish a connection between our Spirit or Soul and the Spirit of God. The choice is ours and can only take place when we, with pure intent, ask God to come into our lives and connect His Spirit with ours. We are in the driver`s seat of our lives and it is up to us to make the first move. God didn`t put us on this earth to be alone. For better or worse, we have to share this planet with 7.5 billion people. Some will become family, friends or acquaintances. Another may even become our spouse. What we must remember is, if the connection with God does not exist, the marriage will have major challenges. All relationships must come together as two whole balanced people for total success to be achieved.
When a person retires, it is expected that the good times begin. We are usually in good health and we look forward to taking up the hobby we always wanted to do or take the trip we never got time to do. For me, I am a lifelong learner and getting a PhD in my mid-fifties tells it all. Well, it didn’t end there. After my retirement I began reading and researching everything I could find on the new energy that Albert Einstein discovered. Most people would probably check my sanity and make the comment that I stayed in education too long and sadly it is probably too late to redeem me from myself.
Well, let me share with you what I have discovered about this new energy that is also called quantum mechanics or quantum physics. There is plenty of research over the past seventy years to prove that Einstein was right. All space is filled with this energy and that includes us. Every atom that is in everything is made up of swirling vortexes of energy. To me, what was even more fascinating was the energy is composed of a very low frequency of light particles and light waves. Researchers have studied these light particles and waves extensively. They discovered the light can be split and land in two different places; not only that it can be in multiple places at the same time. It also defies the laws of known physics and can travel instantaneously anywhere on earth. They have also discovered that it can carry messages and is the most powerful force on the planet.
Being a person who has studied the Bible extensively over many years, I took a theological leap of faith and compared this new energy to the Bible’s description of God. Wonder of wonder, they are identical. For the first time in three hundred years God and science come together in the new energy.
When a person, who is as curious as I am, makes a major personal discovery, you just have to write a book. For the past two years I have written the book, God is Alive and Well, which explores humankind’s relationship with God as it relates to the new energy. All along the way, I have shared the chapters with five different church congregations with overwhelming support for the messages.
This brings us to look at wellness from the perspective of the new energy. First of all, if everything, including us, is composed of energy, what impact does this concept have on our health? We are made up of four bodies. We can see one of our bodies – the physical body. The other three are also composed of the invisible new energy; our emotional body, our mental body and our spirit/soul body. I have explored in the book how our four bodies can get out of whack and become imbalanced, leading to problems arising in our health and wellness.
God is Alive and Well explores the relationship God expects of us as we live our lives in this very complex world. The message here is that God is as close to us as our own breath at all times, and is even closer. God made us in his image when he gave a soul/spirit to us at birth and will leave us and return to God when we leave this earth. During our lifetime we have a choice to make. We can either connect our soul/spirit to the Spirit of God and be guided by His Light, Love and Wisdom or go our own way and live our life without His help. We must always remember God has given us all free will to live our lives in whatever way that we choose. He will not interfere in our decisions unless we choose that connection.
This brings us back to our invisible bodies; emotional, mental, spiritual. For the past century we have tried to bring balance to our bodies through medication, surgery or lifestyle changes. If the problem is an energy issue and not a chemical issue, we need to look to energy solutions to solve some of our issues of imbalance. Asian countries for centuries have resorted to energy solutions to health problems. Some of these solutions are creeping into western society in the forms of meditation, homeopathy, reiki, acupuncture, etc. God is Alive and Well opens the door to examining health and wellness, as it begins a new conversation.
As we have previously mentioned, the study of quantum mechanics has changed the way we look at God but also how we look at ourselves, as humans. The New Science tells us we are composed of energy in the form of light particles at our atomic level. We know that every cell in our bodies is made up of millions of tiny swirling light particles and we have approximately fifty trillion cells in our body. In effect, we are captured light or frozen light, as some quantum researchers call it. What is amazing is we don’t just fly apart!
However, when the body dies and it decays naturally, it does turn back to dust very quickly. When we are alive, God’s light fills us and gives us life. Most times, we think of ourselves as physical bodies but there is more to us than what we think. We also have three bodies we can’t see with the naked eye. However, when we think of everything in terms of quantum light energy, those bodies become just as real to us as the physical body we do see with our eyes. So, what are the other three bodies? We have our emotional body, our mental body and our spirit/soul body. All four bodies have a major part to play in our lives.
See! We are more than we thought!
A soul-touching and inspiring book, God Is Alive and Well presents a fresh and exciting view of God that will ultimately draw readers into a deeper understanding of—and relationship with—their creator.
