Third Eye Light Meditation
It is dark. Eyes closed, we lie as if asleep, dreamless, ignorant of all around us. Floating in a sea of emptiness, we are cradled in darkness – unseeing, unknowing, at peace. We breathe slowly, in and out, in and out, stretching and relaxing our bodies as we settle into the warm, peaceful darkness inside. We are home. We are safe. We are deep within ourselves, feeling, hearing, being – but not yet seeing.
Become this darkness – all knowing, yet unknowing, empty and free. Let the dark wash over you, soothe you, as you empty your mind into the infinity of the void, the womb of darkness – the birthplace of our dreams to come.
Somewhere, in the darkness, we hear a sound – a distant note, a voice, a scuffle of movement. We feel the flutter of a breeze upon our face, feel a warmth upon our shoulders, feel the pull to rise and flow and follow but we know not where. Our bodies cannot see and dare not move. They are dark and still.
They call us for direction, wisdom, guidance. They call to intelligence, they call to memory, they call for clarification of the pattern. They call to light.
And afraid to leave the darkness and safety of our ignorance, we hear this call.
We hear this call and our own mind, hungry for answers, quests outward. We long to see, to know, to behold at once the wonders that surround us. To fill our minds with recognition, the certain steps of knowing, the safety and the peace that light, too, can bring.
We open our mind. We open our eyes. We look about.
Images pour forth in myriad kaleidoscopic forms, tumbling inward, pattern upon pattern, endlessly interweaving.
Colors, shapes, and forms reflecting space around us, reflecting back into us, recording life in patterns that our minds can clearly see.
The mind opens and receives.
But there is too much and the light is blinding.
We call to the dark to shade us, to temper, to bind the patterns into meaning. And the dark comes softly, hand in hand and shadow to the light, defining, shading, interweaving, ordering.
The light comes more gently now, rainbow colors, healing, soothing, illuminating, coming at will. Active yellow, healing green, soothing blue, potent violet. All that is alive glows with light. Shape and essence in form revealed for us to see and know.
What do we wish to see? What do we call forth to our inner vision? What does the light bring?
Beauty of a thousand suns, beauty of a single Moon,
patterns of the life we’re leading. all the truth we are perceiving.
Gently now on wings of light, our petals flutter through the night,
Reaching out to worlds beyond, events forthcoming, days long gone.
Holographic matrix net escapes the boundaries by time set.
All the truth can be contained by patterns in the mind retained
Red and yellow, green and blue, interlace in varied hue.
Shape and form, insight revealed, nothing can remain concealed
From inner vision reaching out, seeing truth, removing doubt.
Inside we open, watch and wait, while wisdom’s visions spin our fate.
Illumination shows the way, our inner light turns night to day.
And though the dark shall yet return, we fear it not for we have learned
the way the dark and light combine, letting patterns be defined.
Dark to light and night to day
Within our minds, we light the way.

Everything Is Vibration
Albert Einstein once said, “Everything is vibration.” On the most fundamental levels, humans and everything else in this world (and universe, for that matter) are made of pure energetic vibrations. In fact, about 99.999% of an atom is empty space and the other .0001 % (Electrons, protons, and neutrons) are probably also made up of empty space. That means that everything we see, this computer, the table, and your body are made up of mostly empty space and the only thing that makes them material is their energetic frequency.
This is basic high school science: gas molecules vibrate at a higher frequency than liquids, and liquids vibrate faster than solids. Everything in the universe is vibrating.
Think about colors: those are simply different frequencies of visible light moving at different speeds. From slowest to fastest, these are the speeds of color vibration: Red resonates at 405-480 THz, orange at 480- 510 THz, yellow at 510-530 THz, green at 530-580 THz, blue at 600-620THz, Indigo at 620- 680 THz, and Violet at 680-790 THz.
Everything has a unique vibratory code and energy, and we should be aware of this, especially when it comes to the food that we put into our bodies! For our health, it’s important that, whenever possible, we should be eating organic food—pesticides have a low frequency vibration as they are meant to kill sentient life. Pesticides, on a vibration and physical level, lead to more disease creating free radicals in the body and having numerous harmful effects.
The ancient Vedic scriptures—the Yoga Sutras—and Buddhist theologies speak to these quantum concepts. In fact, all of Hindu and Buddhist philosophy seeks to destroy the self and the ego, to move from a place of separation/duality or an “us and them” mentality to a place of oneness with the collective, essentially in a quantum sense, turning the self into nothing in order to be one with everything.
Many cutting edge theories—including string theory and the idea of a big bang—revolve around nothingness being the source of creation for everything. Not only did these theological practices have a grand understanding of the universe, but they also had an innate understanding of light, energy and frequency. As such, they discovered that the body has 7 seven main energy centers or chakras that correspond to our emotional and physical states of well-being. The term Chakra comes from the Sanskrit word for wheel.
These Chakras—or spinning wheels of light—resonate with specific frequencies of light. There are seven colors of the rainbow and each one correlates with a chakra.
Red is the slowest frequency of visible light and thus relates to the root chakra, orange for the sacral, yellow for the solar plexus, green for the heart, blue for the throat, and indigo for the third eye, and purple for the crown chakra. As we move up the body, the vibratory frequency of the each color increases as well.
As far as foods are concerned, each chakra is related to the others, but you can focus on one specific chakra that needs attention, if you notice it is out of balance. However, it’s never a bad idea to make a big organic chakra balancing smoothie intended to harmonize the whole body. It’s an awesome way to start the day.
