Earthing: Reconnecting with the Power of the Earth

I first heard of “Earthing,” the concept of connecting to and gaining energy from direct contact with the Earth, several years ago. I learned that the ancient yogis and Christian mystics knew about this great source of power and for that reason developed practices that involved going out into caves or the desert and sleeping on the ground. It not only improved their meditations but reportedly healed sickness and extended longevity.

I bought an Earthing mat and for years I have used it beneath my desk to rest my feet on whilst I was writing and working on the computer. It decreased electronic interference from EMF waves while increasing my energy and ability to focus, but after several months I forgot about it being there. Then recently I re-read the book, “Earthing”by Clinton Ober, Stephen T. Sinatra, and Martin Zucker, and my interest in the subject was renewed. I practice Qi Gong daily and have added more meditation to my routine and the idea of “grounding” my body was important.

One night I decided to do my evening meditation with my feet on the mat. I meditated for about 20 minutes and then went to bed. After several nights, I noticed quite a profound difference: I realized that I slept very deeply, and for the first time in years did not have to get up to use the bathroom. It was if the calming effect had reduced my kidney energy flow in a beneficial way, much like soothing an inflammation which apparently this practice is known for. I felt deeply rested and yet able to remember my dreams more clearly.

I found it has been deeply healing and I heartily recommend the “Earthing” book or some other method of familiarizing yourself with the practice. In a recent article, Dr. Mercola wrote about the health benefits of grounding and featured it in the film “Grounded 2.

The Miracle of Castor Oil Packs by Merryn José

| by Merryn José

Merryn’s personal experience using castor oil packs for healing. ‘What I find most fascinating is that all parts of the castor plant are extremely poisonous to eat, but when the oil is extracted from the seed of the Ricinus communis plant, the poison remains in the seed, and it becomes “the oil that heals.”

A Machine To Help Lower Blood Pressure

I happened to be reading Andrew Weil’s website when I came across information on a small machine called RESPeRATE that actually helps lower blood pressure through paced breathing. Doing some additional research I found it had been favorably reported on NBC nightly news and had the stamp of approval from a number reliable sources. i.e. The Mayo Clinic, John Hopkins, Harvard Medical School, and AARP. This got me interested in finding out more about this little gadget not much bigger than a CD player.

The Great Mysteries: Believing, Knowing, & Proving

Growing up, I never thought twice about whether there was an afterlife, or if it was possible to see into the past or the future, or how one could see things and events at a remote distance. My mother was a psychic, as was her mother and her mother’s mother before her. I knew as a child that I had inherited the “second sight”…. As a result, when people asked me whether I believed in things such as life after death, the paranormal, distance healing, or the mind’s ability to affect matter, I would tell them, “I don’t believe it, I know it.”

Validating Your Spiritual Experience

Many years ago I, too, had what they now call an “STE,” or Spiritual Transformative Experience. Like others, I only told my mother and a few close friends at the time. In my case, I was fortunate in that it was not preceeded by an accident or life threatening illness, instead it came seemingly out of nowhere one evening. Just like a Near Death Experience, I was enveloped in light, spoke with guides, and felt the ecstatic bliss of unconditional love.

The Element of Uncertainty

| by Merryn Jose

Many years ago I used to make a living reading the Tarot cards, and teaching others how to do it. Coming from a long line of psychics, I grew up watching my Mum give readings from tea leaves and cards as well. Early on my mother taught me that people want to hear about their love life, their houses, their kids and their careers. Not only that, but she also said, “People want to hear certainty and specific outcomes — when will I meet the love of their life? When will I get a promotion? What is the best house for me?” I found that while I enjoyed helping people, I felt the burden of responsibility for not misguiding them or being so directive that they ignored other possibilities.

An Alternative Path to Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis

| by Merryn Jose

A dear friend of mine suffered from Multiple Sclerosis and I watched her physical decline for years before she sadly passed away in 2013. This was so distressing to me, that when I first saw this TED talk from Dr. Terry Wahls, on her miraculous reversal of this terrible disease, I was enthralled. I immediately wanted to know more and started researching her story. A medical academic at The University of Iowa, Wahls was 45 when she was diagnosed with MS. Her health declined rapidly, and within a few years she was in a wheelchair. In a recent article, she wrote, “Despite taking the newest drug therapies available, by 2007 I was at my worst. I couldn’t even sit in a regular chair for more than 10 minutes because I was so weak. I had brain fog, severe fatigue and it was very hard to walk even a very short distance. It was around that same time, over 10 years ago, that I started reading the basic science about nutrition and MS, and I began experimenting…

Revisiting the Seth Material

Reading the Seth Material was life changing for me!! In the mid ’80s, my mother and I had been experiencing many of the same phenomena our whole lives. Someone recommended that I investigate Jane Roberts’ story of channeling material and I devoured that first book in one sitting.

Becoming a Pure Channel for Spiritual Growth

People ask me all the time how they can grow more spiritually. I have learned over the years that becoming a pure channel for spiritual growth comes down to a few simple steps — and then a lot of practice! First, you need to be organized and have some sort of daily routine that suits you. Structure is extremely important, especially when you first start on the path, because it gives you a firm foundation to build on.
