Both of our fall topics on health came out of workshops taken this summer at dowsing conferences. Sandee Mac, former President of the American Society of Dowsers, gave a workshop on Stephen Pollitt’s Source Energy Medicine at the West Coast Dowsers Conference, to which Nicolas Finck, Elizabeth Gaines and Roxanne Louise attended. Roxanne also took Barbara Eden’s all day class at ASD on a basic routine to get the energy flowing smoothly through the major systems of the body.

October 8 CVD Meeting: Stephen Politt’s 

Source Energy Medicine

“If you believe healing should be simple, safe and universally applicable you will be pleased to learn more about Source Energy Medicine.” Stephen Pollitt

To check out Stephen’s work, see here.

Stephen, who is author of Heal Thyself has taught in the Charlottesville area before, and I heard about his work then from locals, Marianne Roberts and Ann Marie Dujany. SEM takes the idea of Masua Emoto’s work that water can be imprinted with energy through consciousness (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Masaru_Emoto)But Stephen then uses radionics and dowsing to find the proper number frequency for specific imbalances of body, mind or spirit. Our next newsletter will focus on his work in greater detail.

================================================

E. Gaines cropped award Elizabeth Gaines receives Outstanding Service Award from American Society of Dowsers at West Coast Dowsing Conference

At the awards ceremony of American Society of Dowsers Convention this past June, it was announced that Elizabeth Gaines was being recognized for “Outstanding Service”. This was actually presented to Elizabeth in person at the West Coast Dowsers Conference, an arm of ASD, held this past July in Santa Cruz, California.

While Elizabeth and her husband, Nicolas Finck, now live in Earlysville, Virginia, they both have been most active in the West Coast bi-annual Dowsing Conference that has contributed largely to it’s success for many years. Elizabeth has also been a big help with Central Virginia Dowsers as well . Congratulations, Elizabeth, for this well deserved award!

Nicholas Finck at W.Coast announcing Also at the West Coast Dowsing Conference, here is Nicolas Finck as announcer at the Awards Ceremony. Both Nicolas and Elizabeth went out a week early and then stayed after the end to physically set things up and take down. The success of this and other conferences rely heavily on the work on such incredible volunteers. We at Central Virginia Dowsers are blessed to them them helping us as well.

me teaching ASD WC#2 Also at the West Coast Dowsing Conference, Roxanne Louise taught Accessing More—The Infinite Intelligence Process, and also on Dowsing for Mental/Emotional Healing, and was also a vendor at both West Coast and at ASD. Accessing More refers to her book by same title available here. Here she was at her vending table. It was cold there in July—low 50 degrees F in morning/evening. But as you can see, all vending was outside, so while there was morning mist, there was no rain. Me at Vending ASD WC'16  David Young playing flutes

She was happy to remake acquaintance of musician, David Young who plays two flutes at once for interesting effect. Check out his music on link above. David had done a concert at Unity in Charlottesville more than a year ago. His music is magical and healing. His publisher is Bob Friedman from Faber, Virginia.David and Roxanne were both speakers/vendors at 3 summer conferences: American Society of Dowsers in June, West Coast Dowsing in July, and the National Guild of Hypnotists Convention in August.

At the June American Society of Dowsers Conference, where Donna Eden was the keynote presenter, Roxanne Louise taught two classes: Dowsing on Health, and Revisiting Non Beneficial Energies.

How Not to Let Non-Beneficial Energies Stick

Energetic Self Defense:

A Common Sense Approach

Non-beneficial, uncomfortable energies are around us in the sea of consciousness just like beneficial, comfortable ones all the time. The point is not to let them stick to you. Non-beneficial energies cannot stick if your energy field is strong and healthy and if you have no receptor sites. Your energy field is affected by your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual state.

  •  Non-beneficial energies cannot stick if you are in a good physical state.

Therefore, take care of your health, and get adequate nutrition, sleep, etc. Also, do something that forces you to breathe deeply and preferably combine it with connecting with others. Exercise strengthens your energy field, dumps a great deal of stress, and oxygenates your brain so that you can think better. But rather than work out in isolation on machines, sign up for a dance class, chorus, drumming circle, hiking group where you will socialize at the same time.  Even hard, physical work that gives you a sense of accomplishment is helpful, but is even better if you do it with a friend.

  •  Non-beneficial energies cannot stick if you are in good mental and emotional state.

This means 

  1. dealing adequately with everyday stress
  2. dealing with old hurts, anger, resentment, trauma, drama, etc.
  3. being connected to others
  4. and having fun.

All of us need to learn basic stress management techniques to dump stuck energies. In today’s highly stressed world, it is easy to become overwhelmed. There are a great many techniques, but the Emotional Freedom Technique is a good place to start because it is simple to learn, highly adaptable to anything, and powerful. There are many videos online making it easy to learn this process.

Your mental and emotional issues, your unhealed wounds, fears, prejudices, limiting beliefs and addictions act as velcro that attracts similar, compatible energies. This makes your own situation worse. Like attracts like. But each time you heal some of your own issues, you remove the receptor site and prevent these non-beneficial energies and the entities that like them from sticking to you.

  •  Non-beneficial energies cannot stick if you are happy, surrounded by people you love, and having fun.

One major contributor to severe depression and even suicide is isolation. Wholesome laughter, get togethers with people you love and care about and who care about you is vital to keep your health and energy field strong. For example, I notice a real difference in how I feel when I am around my son and grandchildren. Giving piggy back rides and engaging in vigorous games just doesn’t hurt my body the same way as it would it I were lifting heavy things at home. And I am much more resilient to intrusive energies.

  • Laugh.

When I was going through a divorce, I would deliberately stop in the offices of other people in my building and ask them to tell me a joke. I was not denying what was going on in my life or my upset about it. Rather, I realized that sometimes things are so bad that all you can do is laugh. I knew that the laughter would help to break up all the congested feelings of sadness, anger, grief, overwhelm, depression, etc. Then as  I retold the joke quickly to several other people, I laughed again. I developed a significant repertoire. Despite the severe stress from my personal situation, and despite their own frustrations, the jokes helped to restore balance for us all. It made a positive shift in the energy, both in me and the workplace.

  •  Non-beneficial energies cannot stick if you are in a good spiritual state.

By spiritual, I mean that you feel deeply connected to something beyond yourself. Perhaps you feel a real sense of belonging and service to your family, the larger community, to humanity as a whole. You may feel deeply rooted to the earth, to nature, to some over arching intelligence behind the cosmos. This has nothing to do with specific religious beliefs, but with having a relationship to something More. This sense of belonging to something beyond yourself provides you some immunity against intrusive, uncomfortable energies.

If you consider that as consciousness you are connected to the Source of consciousness, that connection provides a link to greater resources of knowledge, wisdom and power you can harness to meet any challenge. I consider that each person is a powerful, spiritual being somehow intrinsically connected to the greater whole. Instead of being a powerless victim without influence, I consider that what makes you you –that special spark that is your vibratory signature–was created by design, by intention, on purpose.

When you feel connected to something More, and also when you are aligned with a sense of purpose and feel you are making a meaningful contribution, this contributes to spiritual strength as well.

You are psychically linked to others that love you, believe in you, and are there to help you. Whether you are physically with your friends or family members or alone when you are feeling low, just by thinking of your loved ones, by thinking of your love for them and their love for you, you instantly are enveloped in a protected bubble.

You do not have to be religious to gain spiritual strength.

You can put out a mental call to and connect with that something More in the universe for help. You can also deliberately imagine your loved ones, guardian angels, ancestors watching your back. You can imagine taking them with you when you are going into a tough situation, like having your own personal army standing alongside and behind you when faced with the school yard bully.

If you have trouble going to sleep, you can put your angels or ancestors at the head and foot of the bed to watch over you throughout the night and only awaken you if it is important to do so.

 Gratitude helps to strengthen your energy field.

When you think of all the things for which you are grateful, you realize that you have resources to bring to any challenge. The old rituals of praying before bed and before meals with thanksgiving are energetically protective.

 Forgiveness helps too.

When you hold onto negative emotions, you bind those you hold responsible to you. This prolongs your suffering and weakens your energy field making you more susceptible to other non-beneficial energies. Your anger, hurt, resentment or disapproval does not change what happened, and cannot resolve it. Constructive action is the only thing that can rectify anything.

The reason to forgive is simply because you do not want to hurt anymore, and you realize that you need to free that vital energy to create a better future. Turn those that offended you over to their destiny under God. Then also ask for forgiveness from those you have harmed yourself whether knowingly or unknowingly–even if that harm was only in the perception of those other people. Pray that any karma between you be healed. Ho ‘oponopono exercise as popularized by Dr. Hew Len and Joe Vitale in Zero Limits is helpful here.

It is also vital to forgive yourself. If you don’t, you will find a way to sabotage or punish yourself, which you don’t want to happen. Learn what you can from your experiences. Learn what you need to say or do, or not say or do next time. Imagine getting to do it all over again and handling the situation in a better way.

Perhaps make a symbolic act of contrition as a way of saying you are sorry. For example, you can light a candle in church, do some act of charity or kindness for someone.

Do not personally take on or identify with emotional issues or problems.

This is especially important if you are sensitive, empathetic and feel the emotions of others. Assist others as appropriate, but do not assume their burdens and pain. Keep one foot always planted in a world without such problems so that you know that things can be different. Vividly imagine that better world, and then ask yourself if there is something you can do to move in that direction. If you identify with problems, whether your own or that of others, it will drain your energy and ability to be effective in changing it.

Are they really yours?

Ask if the unsettling emotions and thoughts you have are really yours or belong to someone else. Are they true? Is your mother, your kid brother, that old school teacher still in your head and telling you it’ll never work, etc.? Can you regain your composure by challenging discordant thoughts? Do they reflect something you saw in the media, a movie, or read in a novel? Is the nightly news getting you down because you do not have enough good news to balance it?

Are you picking unsettling emotions up on the psychic airways? If they are not yours, say a prayer for the owner of those feelings even if you are not sure where they came from. Think of each person as really a powerful, spiritual being, guided and protected as well as you are. Imagine the person/s involved as  healthy, happy, confident. But if the feelings are yours, or you resonate with them, then do something to resolve or heal them. Again, the Emotional Freedom Technique or the Infinite Intelligence Process that I teach can help.

Do not accept emotional abuse.

Let someone’s verbal bombardment pass right on by. You would not be upset if a lion in the zoo roared at you. The lion is just being itself. So is your boss.

While it is good to be aware of what is going on in the world and how people feel about it and about you, their feelings, their judgments are their perceptions, their opinions, their reality.  However, information is useful. It is feedback. Information informs you of action that might be appropriate, needed and timely. It may inform you on how you might be helpful or better. It may make you aware of what issues are resonating within yourself that might need to be healed. Ask yourself how it can be turned into a blessing. Is action necessary or appropriate? What can you learn from it?

Non-beneficial energies that do seem to stick or annoying entities that are around have something to teach you. If you pay attention and take action, they can actually bless you.  There is a saying “Man made it for evil, but God meant it for good.”

Remember to have an attitude that any energies that bother you are a temporary annoyance. My belief is that you are a powerful, spiritual being–a chip off the Old Block, which is the ultimate Source of all that is that people call God. Therefore, you have a right to dominion within your own energy field, your own home and environment, and a right to command the benevolent forces of the heavens to assist you.

BALANCE

Remember to keep a healthy energy field not just with good basic care of yourself with adequate sleep, and nutrition, dealing with stress and old issues, but being around loving, supportive people, having fun, laughing, singing and dancing, doing anything that brings a smile to your face, and gives you a sense of meaning and purpose in life. Breathing deeply will instantly release fear, raise your vibration and strengthen your energy field. And happy or sacred music will assist you to stay in a good place and permeate the walls of wherever you play it.

Picking Up Vibes

Sensing Energy

You walk into a building, a room, or down a street, and for some reason, start feeling peaceful, happy, warm, safe. Or, sometimes you might start getting agitated, scared, creeped out, or simply uncomfortable. There may not appear to be any rational reason for it, but you can’t deny that you are sensing or reacting to something. What?

I remember visiting the home of Philosopher, Jidda Krishnamurti (long since dead) in Ojai, California and I COULD NOT HELP SMILING. While I respected this sage, I certainly was not a follower. Yet, the happy energy in that space was palpable, and forcibly changed my usual overly serious continence to happy as long as I stayed in his house and immediate grounds.

I have walked into some empty churches, and immediately felt a sense of peace. And while the architecture and sheer beauty of the place may have been lovely in all of them, the peace appeared to be unrelated to aesthetics. Some of the most beautiful left me empty, and some of the plainest churches felt the best. One place where I particularly and consistently felt at ease was at the Lake Shrine of the Self Realization Fellowship in Pacific Palisades, California. It is a small, simple place in a beautiful garden with a small lake, that was dedicated by Yogi Paramahansa Yogananda (also long deceased). His followers have regularly practiced meditation there over the years.

Just what is the cause of our reactions?

  • Are we sensing energy vortexes as with those in Sedona, or other beneficial yet invisible earth energies and ley lines that were harnessed in the placement of the world’s oldest cathedrals? Perhaps. Dowsers are skilled in locating them.
  • Are we picking up on chi–the movable positive or negative life force which plays an essential role in the Chinese study of feng shui? This can take into consideration the lay of the land and a building’s placement on it, the shape of spaces and angles inside, colors, the function of the rooms and furniture placement, and much more. Feng shui has been shown to effect energy and mood.
  • Are we sensing the emotions, frame of mind, and possibly even the intentions of the current or even long past inhabitants in that space or area? For example, was I feeling the left-over residues of years of peaceful meditation, or the personality imprint of saints such as Krishnamurti or Yogananda, and of good people who had peace in their hearts who had spent a lot of time at those locations? I think so.
  • Are we feeling the residue of activities and events that occurred there? Yes, if they are powerful enough even for a single event as in an accident, murder, battle, or if repeated over time if less in intensity in daily life.
  • Are we feeling the good will and harmony or the irritation and dislike within a household or company when we walk in the door? Don’t we have the expression that ‘you could cut the atmosphere with a knife’ ?
  • Are we even picking up on the emotions and thoughts of others that are directed at us whether they are physically present with us or not? For example, am I feeling good because someone who loves me is thinking of me even though miles away? Conversely, if I am uncomfortable, is it because someone is angry with me and focusing on me at that moment? Am I picking up on their disapproval, rejection, negative judgment?

The reverse of things that make us feel good can also saturate a place and be sensed as well. This can include bad feng shui, geopathic zones, the residue of traumatic, unhappy, stressful events, or the imprint of upset, angry, fearful or depressed people.  I, personally, am very uncomfortable in or around hospitals, prisons, certain neighborhoods (whether or not obvious from the buildings), the World Trade Center, or anywhere near old battlefields, factory farms or animal feedlots.

Years ago, I was awoken in the middle of the night while camping in New Jersey by a British soldier and American Indian in hand to hand combat outside my motorhome. Dream? No. Ghosts? Again, no. It seemed more like a frozen piece of time being replayed like a broken record because of the emotional intensity in that spot.

Another night, I was compelled to follow the energy I felt in my parent’s house some time after my father’s death. Dowsing my way, much as one might follow breadcrumbs from one end of the house to the other, it lead me down to the basement to my father’s ham radio room where he spent countless, happy hours talking to people all over the world. Was this my father’s ghost? No, I felt sure that wasn’t it. It felt like the leftover residue of his concentrated energy over the years. That room and the activities there played a big part in his life.

Referring to my father, there was an intense holy and loving presence in the house after he died that lasted for some months. It extended even into the yard. Was this energy my father that was continuing to love us? Maybe. Was it the love of our deceased ancestors to comfort us? Maybe. But it felt like much, much more than either of those possibilities. Was it the spiritual energy that my father attracted by his goodness and religious devotion? It felt like the latter.

As I think about the uncomfortable energies that I have encountered over the years, especially the ones that seem to be in my own space or follow me around, I am convinced that a great deal of it falls within my own lap.

The fault in me lies not in that I perceive uncomfortable energies, but that such non-beneficial energies sometimes seems to stick and are difficult to shake because of me being in a weakened state, whether physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually.

This weakened state might come from both current issues as well as past issues that I have not yet resolved. The cumulative effect makes it harder to gain perspective, and deal with those issues. It also makes me vulnerable to other stressors as well as to outside energies that drain my energy further and feed off and aggravate the very non-beneficial thoughts and emotions I am trying to heal.

Such weakening agents include:

  • Fatigue, exhaustion, lack of sufficient sleep and pushing beyond my limits.
  • Other health issues including illness, toxicity, inflammation, lowered immunity, diet.
  • Overwhelm, worry and stress in my personal life. Concern for loved ones.
  • Worry, grief, fear, anger, depression or upset about the suffering, cruelty, corruption, ignorance, injustice, and evil that I perceive or hear about in local, national, world conditions and events.
  • My own unhealed emotional wounds, limiting beliefs and judgments. This refers to like attracts like. For example, if I am sensitive to the jealousy/anger of others, it may be because I have not healed either my own jealousy or anger, or the pain from previous experiences with jealous/angry people.

I have found that anything that depresses my spirit or challenges my health makes me vulnerable to being impacted by bad vibes. But the reverse is also true.

Anything that lifts my spirits and enhances my health can strengthen my energy field and make me more resilient to non-beneficial energies, stress, and able to deal, in general, with problems or challenges of any kind.

Such energy enhancers include all the usual, common sense things like quality nutrition, sleep, detoxification, gratitude, forgiveness, love, joy, happy music and dance, loving friends and family nearby, a supportive network and community, recreation, nature, sunshine, wholesome laughter, exercise, and more.

Even if bad vibes are directed at me personally as when someone is jealous, angry or resentful or if they reject, judge or disapprove of me, if I exercise healthy diet and lifestyle habits, if I work to resolve my own personal issues, and if I challenge my own limiting beliefs and judgments, and if I have supportive, loving people around me, it makes a substantial, positive difference in being able to maintain a healthy boundaries,  equilibrium, and resiliency. Then I am less impacted by whatever disharmony, bad vibes or energy pollution is out there from any source.
