Perspectives on Grounding Crystals

Grounding with crystals is simple... Light assimilates into the body's physical form. Form's vibration then rises and is empowered.

Grounding has always been associated with the Earth. Electrical utility companies use copper ground rods driven 4-5 feet into the Earth throughout their networks; and copper ground rods are present in every building having electricity. Electrical charge goes to ground through the ground rod to complete the circuit of electrical current.

Grounding stones follow the same principle. They pull light into their physical forms and hold it―at least initially. Physical form, in this instance, is not exactly the Earth nor is it precisely the stone itself. After the form of the crystal has grounded its complement of light frequencies, it becomes Oneness to a degree depending on how much light it assimilates. Oneness is the expression of the Godhead outside of itself and within creation. Oneness is God and has the capacity to resonate with all things in the created universe. (Reference: The Story of Light, Path to Enlightenment, Chapter 1, section 1.2, entitled: Light + Form = Oneness). On our world, this means that the grounding stone can help attract light frequencies, which can then flow between the grounding crystal's own mass and other forms. It makes light available. This is not to say that grounding stones are adept or efficient, yet grounded light can be shared between forms―one to another.

Although the vast majority of crystals attract and assimilate light within their own range of frequencies, what has become known as a “grounding stone” is usually black and infrequently brown in colour. The major difference from other crystals is that the grounding stones work with the lowest light frequencies. Because grounding is synonymous with planet Earth, a proper grounding stone needs to resonate reasonably well with the Earth. Earth’s indigenous light is the black range of light  frequencies. (Reference: The Story of Light, Path to Enlightenment, Chapter 1, section 1.3, entitled: Black: the Light of Earth) Therefore, the black stones, which carry black light, harmonize with the Earth best. Examples include Black Onyx, Smokey Quartz, Obsidian, Black Tourmaline, and Deschloizite to mention a very few.

Hematite: Black with a shiny surface.

The simplest grounding stone, and perhaps the simplest crystal, is Hematite. Its two primary physical attributes are readily apparent. First, it is shiny; and second, it is black. Hematite is one of the Earth’s most potent grounding stones. Its black aspect attracts only the lowest black light frequency range, and its shiny aspect reflects away all other frequency ranges. Effective yes―very! But, not at all versatile! It only deals with Earth’s lowest frequency of black light to the exclusion of all others. Hematite is one of the four stones used in the Light Body layout, yet think of it as having the capacity to bring light to the lowest and densest of vibrations. It grounds the lowest vibration of the black light frequency into the lowest vibrations of form. If some part of a person’s physical body is lacking light, Hematite is the best stone to start with for the purpose of light empowerment. It brings the lowest frequency of black light, which is also the first frequency that is capable of assimilating into (bodily) form that has no light.

Another stone of fascination is Obsidian. It is black and occasionally dark brown, sometimes it comes with white flecks and is indeed a grounding stone. During Earth’s infancy, Obsidian was so effective at grounding the limited light available that it was given the honour of grounding the frequencies and energies of Earth’s soul. Obsidian is alive and carries the essence of the soul of the planet within.

Snow Flake Obsidian

There is nothing to fear about Obsidian, but its power can be easily misunderstood. It works with the Earth’s soul, and it also works with the soul of whoever is using it. Obsidian’s ability to orchestrate and harmonize multiple soul frequencies, along with its potent grounding ability, makes it a powerful crystal. With so much soul, Obsidian leaves no room for ego. The difficulties that the user may experience arise, not from the light and energy of the stone, but from the displacement of the ego. The ego naturally attempts to fight its way back to prominence. The ensuing seesaw battle between the soul and the ego can be most disharmonious. Please check out Obsidian (Reference: The Crystal Textbook, Section entitled: Obsidian).

During Earth’s earliest times, grounding stones created their own problems. They held light too tightly. They did their job of attracting light to Earth and of safekeeping it, but letting it go was not part of their process. Consequently, the grounding function had to go through an evolutionary process. At first, grounding stones took divine light frequencies out-of-circulation and held them tightly. Therefore, very little light was available to empower and enlighten other forms. Much time elapsed with little progress in the mission to enlighten the Earth. Slowly, more light arrived on the Earth and, with the help of the grounding stones, it remained on Earth, even if not immediately available. Eventually, the grounding stones brought enough light to the planet to create a surplus. Planetary empowerment began thereafter.

The Importance of Breath

 Getting out of the hospital after an operation to remove kidney stones was like a breath of fresh air. Yes, there was pain. Yes, there was karma clearing; and mostly, yes, I was glad to put it behind me. Beyond all of that, what actually happened was an extremely valuable lesson that I learned about the breath of fresh air that I so cherished.

My book, The Story of Light, Through Heaven’s Gate, has a very interesting discussion about the light holding capacity of the molecules of the air, and of oxygen in particular. I have taught people to be aware of the contribution of the breath to raising their vibration on numerous occasions and also emphasized the value of consciously working with the nostrils, nasopharynx, bronchial tubes, and alveoli. Each part of the respiratory tract contributes to the oxygenation of the body and the spiritual practitioner needs to be aware to use them appropriately. To quote my book, “As oxygen readily assimilates light to become divine Oneness, it indeed carries the primary life force on the planet. Pranayama (a.k.a., yogic breathing) is essentially the bringing of oxygen’s Oneness into the body.”

Oxygen molecule graphic

The great lesson that I learned during my hospital visit was just how significant and how immediate the respiratory tract is to the oxygenation of the body. There I was in the post-op area, about 15 minutes after recovering consciousness from the general anaesthetic that I had been under. I was quite awake and conscious and definitely breathing. My breath was sometimes deep and full, and sometimes short and shallow. I was hooked up to the monitors that show heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, and most interestingly oxygen saturation.

The post-op duty nurse answered my question that they like to see at least 92% oxygen saturation. Here is what happened to impress me about the awesome power of the breath, actually two breaths to be exact. At one point, my breath was shallow enough that the monitor read 89% saturation. I then thought I had better start breathing better. My next two breaths―only twowere moderately long and deep. In those two breaths, my oxygen saturation went to 94%. In five breaths, it rose to 97%, and by the twelfth breath, I was at 99%.

This was scientific proof of just how important even a single breath can be to the well being of the body, and especially to the exposure to the divine light frequencies carried by the oxygen molecule. As much as I was awed by this clear demonstration of the value of the breath, the nurse casually confirmed this phenomenon as something she sees all the time. I am sure that that would be true for any post-op nurse.

As for me, I am still in awe enough to both write this article and make a more conscious effort to make longer, deeper breaths a habit.

Healing with Light: the Far Infrared Sauna

Reiki, Huna Kane, Healing Touch, the laying of hands, and crystal healing all have one thing in common.  Each healing modality uses light to do the healing.  In truth, light is the only thing that actually does the healing.  What a simple principle!  Find a way for light to enter an area of disease or injury, and the healing begins.  Find a way to get enough light to the area, and complete healing will happen.

From the body of knowledge about how divine light and crystals work on Earth and in the heavens found in my books, The Crystal TextbookThe Story of Light, Path to Enlightenment, and The Story of Light, Through Heaven’s Gate, the red light frequency range is a highly penetrating band of frequencies.  If you are going to use light to enter a diseased or injured area, the red frequency range is the most certain of all frequencies to get through.  To appreciate the qualities of red light, consider that the red frequencies of the crystal, Ruby, are harnessed to create laser beam cutting tools.

Far Infrared Light Band

The far infrared spectrum of frequencies does not lend itself to being a laser cutting tool, but its range of frequencies, in the quantity emitted by the elements of the far infrared sauna makes a notable contribution to the healing process.  Because there are multiple elements in each sauna, each putting out a breadth of rays within the sauna, light will find its way into significant portions of the body, to a depth of up to 1.5”.  Healing becomes generalized throughout.

Will a far infrared sauna make a difference to your healing process?  Far infrared saunas have several endorsements from medical doctors. My own GP believes in the process enough to have sent me to take laser light therapy, which involved both red and far infrared bands of light.  After experiencing how effective the process was in knocking-out the pain and making it easier to walk, I started looking around for a treatment regime that I could do at home.  I did the research on the pros and cons of infrared saunas.  I went with the Far North Sauna people in Edmonton, Alberta primarily because the heating elements that emit the infrared rays are ceramic, as opposed to carbon or aluminum.  Beyond that, the price was reasonable, the unit was easy to assemble, it fit easily into the basement, used normal electric plugins, and there was a stereo built-in. Unfortunately, Far North Saunas have since gone out-of-business.

My wife and I understand light and healing, and understand the value of using a far infrared light sauna on a regular basis.  With regular use, I began to notice a lessening of the pain in my body’s injuries, especially in my knees.

The following excerpt comes from the Far North Sauna (Edmonton, Alberta) website prior to their demise.

Quote: “Far infrared light is starting to make its effects known in the sports community, where injuries are more common than in the general public, and where sports teams are leading the way with innovations that fit a more mainstream medical model. The bottom line is that it works.

Injuries and Far Infrared Sauna Therapy (FIRT)

FIRT has gained immense notoriety with weekend warriors and professional athletes alike. FIRT has the unique ability to speed up and improve the healing process of many injuries including joint and muscle pain, back pain, scarring, colds and flues, as well as a host of other conditions. FIRT penetrates the skin up to two inches and causes increased blood flow and vasodilation. In the healing process and specifically during the sub-acute stage where we see new growth of connective tissue and capillaries that help repair damaged structures far infrared sauna therapy works very well. Scar tissue also continues to grow during this time and is minimized by using FIRT. FIRT helps promote rebuilding of injured tissue by having a positive effect on the fibroblasts (connective tissue cells necessary for the repair of injury). Furthermore, it increases growth of cells, DNA syntheses, and protein synthesis all necessary during tissue repair and regeneration. FIRT also expands capillaries, which stimulate increased blood flow, regeneration, circulation, and oxygenation. The chronic stage follows in which scar tissue is remodelled by the stresses placed on it. During this stage, the deep heat of far infrared sauna therapy helps blood vessels dilate, thus bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen rich blood to oxygen depleted muscles, so they recover faster. All-in-all, FIRT is an excellent addition to any muscle and joint rehabilitation program. FIRT has been great in helping to reduce downtime caused by colds and flues as-well due to its effect on the immune system.

Immune Systems and Far Infrared Sauna Therapy

FIRT works in many ways to help strengthen a weakened immune system. Firstly, the gentle warmth created from the heat of the far infrared saunas raises the internal body temperature which in turn mimics a type of artificial fever. This stimulates the body’s immune system to turn on and get busy producing more of the different body defence cells that can be used to combat any foreign invaders. Secondly, FIRT stimulates full detoxification of the body. Detoxification can be defined as “the process of reducing the build-up of various poisonous substances in the body”. Because the far infrared frequency wavelength penetrates the entire surface of the body up to two inches, a thorough cleansing can take place. The far infrared heat opens the pores to their base, which helps mobilize the toxins, which are then flushed out when you sweat. Every system in our body performs better when it functions in a detoxified state including the digestive system, endocrine system, cardiovascular system, lymphatic system and most importantly the Immune System. The United States Centre for Disease Control estimates that over 80% of all illnesses have environmental and lifestyle causes. Remember to drink lots of water throughout the day, especially before and after your far infrared sauna session to help with the detox flushing. A third, and also very important aspect of immune system health that far infrared sauna therapy works with, is the creation of relaxation and stress relief. As we all know, stress either acute or chronic plays a major role in diminishing our immune system function as it causes chemical and hormonal imbalances to occur. The soothing heat generated from the far infrared sauna therapy creates total relaxation and decreased stress levels. Research has shown that continuous far infrared sauna therapy promotes a rebalancing of the body’s hormones through its effect on the autonomic nervous system.”  Endquote.

Getting a far infrared sauna did not end with the company mentioned above. They are still quite available and probably in your local area. Further, information on the healing benefits of the far infrared light spectrum is also quite available. A simple internet search should get you there.

Crystals: the Subtlety of Light

Quite often I hear the misplaced skepticism that crystals are a joke and do not work. I have a great deal of empathy for this illusion, and for good reason.

Quite simply, very few sources know how they work and are, therefore, really short on their explanations. I laugh every time I hear the assertion that, for example, Green Aventurine is a healing crystal. Sure it is! And, really—it is! But simplistic cause-and-effect assertions say very little. The core of the explanation-problem is that very few sources account for how the crystal works with light. Taking that further, what is known about light? If the source cannot bring divine light into the discussion about a crystal, all that will be left is cause-and-effect. Add a bit of breadth, and the crystal will do everything for everyone. No wonder there are lots of skeptics. I, too, am skeptical about most claims that are made about crystals.

There are a host of characteristic variables that apply to divine light. To be sure, understanding the light that governs the spiritual path is not simplistic. Brace yourself for its complexity if you want to understand it in language that is mature enough to be used to communicate to others.

The characteristic of divine light that prompts this blog-post is that light is subtle. When a crystal brings light to a person, that light is subtle. It comes with high and subtle vibrational frequencies that are not readily detected by the uninitiated consciousness. The bona-fide clairvoyant may have the competence to realize the shift in vibration that occurs, but most persons that use crystals do not have that competency. For almost everyone else, using a crystal is not a noticeable event. Crystals do not hit you on the head with a 2x4. But that is not saying they do not work—they do!

Crystals bring light. Light is subtle. The change that results will be subtle and hardly noticeable, but change happens. Light comes. It acts upon the vibration of the crystal’s user and that vibration shifts.

High Quality Optical Calcite
High Quality Optical Calcite

To draw the contrast to help with understanding the context of crystalline subtlety, understand that the divine light that crystals bring and work-with comes primarily from higher dimensions. Sixth dimensional vibration is unequivocally of higher and subtler resonance. Third dimensional vibration is much more dense. The difference usually leaves the crystal user with no benchmark by which to gauge what the crystal is doing. Nothing seems to be what is happening. But light still comes. It accumulates the more the person uses the crystal.

With my own spiritual path, in the early days, I came to realize the changes resulting from my many spiritual practices, including using crystals, when I looked back on the previous 3-4 months. The accumulated effect of accumulating light frequencies, as they affect your vibration, become noticeable after a time, and even then, only if you actually make the effort to look consciously to make note of the changes. After 3-4 months of serious spiritual practices, the changes in your vibration should be quite apparent.

Yes, light is subtle. So, the affects crystals have in the immediate moment are rarely significant enough to allow you to recognize the effect on your vibration. Repeated use over time, however, will bring a guaranteed change in vibration on condition that the denials of skepticism are not blocking the flow of light into your body.  Skepticism not required!

Is the Chandelier Spiritual?

      Everyone sure is talking about the light these days. Sometimes I even get the odd question that asks if I am referring to the same light that comes from the chandelier. Well divine light is divine light is divine light, and light is light is light, but the chandelier emits a band of vibration that is limited to the rays that the human eye can perceive.

Can we say that this light from light-bulbs is spiritual?  Well, I'm not saying that.

Here's the stretch for light from the chandelier...

Contrast the means by which a room was lit before electricity and after.  The effect of candle power did its job and fulfilled its purpose, but had a lot of limitations.  The variations of light that come from electrically powered sources are now many and varied.  LED lights, theatre spot lights, incandescent, florescent, lights over the stove and in the oven, pot lighting, and back light on the computer keyboard are some of the adaptations that humankind has created.  Is it spiritual? Is it divine light or just light?

When the lights of a modern house are contrasted to the candles of past centuries, a definite increase in vibration overall becomes apparent.  Life is faster, easier, and has more awareness of the world.  Cabin fever has a whole different meaning as the world is lit-up before our very eyes through the internet.  The evolution of spirit has taken leaps and bounds for the advent of light bulbs.

While incandescent and florescent light is not directly divine or spiritually charged, it has raised vibration and helped us, as a species, to find the space within which to grow spiritually.

Crystals: Atlantisite

If not for you, gift it to someone else.

The following is an excerpt from Roger's upcoming third book, this time about crystals.
©S. Roger Joyeux

     Atlantisite offers a cheery green vibration of the common garden variety.  The variety of green here allows the mind to open without pushing any limits.  As a healing stone in the classic sense, Atlantisite accelerates the vibration of the body’s form wherever it is placed.   What is meant by not pushing the limits is that the stone works within the light frequency ranges of the user’s vibration.  Its acceleration of the body is therefore subdued.
     Atlantisite’s green crystalline vibration works its healing magic by gently softening the areas of a person’s body mass that are not fully balanced or have distortions in the flow of its light energy.  Atlantisite may be called the “naturalizer” because it takes the body’s healing process only as far as the body’s current state of vibration.  It does not alter the body’s vibration.  It is not a stone for opening or reconditioning the body, or for taking the spiritual path forward.
     Once the person’s body has achieved a natural, balanced state at the level of its current vibration, the person using Atlantisite can awaken to the light and energy that exists in the immediate vicinity and in the now moment, without pushing the body to higher vibration levels, or causing expansion of form-essence.  This is not an evolutionary step, but rather, the opportunity to be all you can be now.  Atlantisite’s healing casts away the body’s imbalances and smoothes the distortions.  Light energy flows within the user’s body exactly as it should for right now.
     The great energy healing work of Atlantisite answers the need to bring a person’s vibration into its natural state without the disturbing turbulence of an evolutionary push forward.  It is a stone for individuals, who are dabbling with spirituality, and therefore, still carry significant vibrational issues and imbalances, such as the need for clearing karma and learning basic life lessons.  By bringing their vibrations into a natural state, the influx of light frequencies received does not go beyond the range that is consistent with the will, and does not go beyond personal choices.  Free will is thereby preserved.  The spiritual path of the person using Atlantisite proceeds at the person’s own pace.  Such persons are those whose spiritual evolution is not yet consciously awakened and whose kundalini (base chakra) has not yet opened.  If a person is already a spiritual seeker that has willfully stepped onto the spiritual path, that person is beyond the need for the healing that Atlantisite offers.  Ideally, a piece of Atlantisite, which has been shaped to have an aesthetic presentation, makes a wonderful gift for someone who is open minded, but has not yet aspired to spiritual life.
     Most often, Atlantisite stones also contain inclusions of purple-coloured Stichtite.  Stichtite’s level of vibration is consistent with the green vibration of Atlantisite and with the same range of the heart chakra’s green light frequencies.    Stichtite is a worker-bee, drone-level, heart chakra vibration of love that has no direct affiliation with the healing work of Atlantisite.  Stichtite and Atlantisite are mutually exclusive, but also mutually compatible.  Stichtite steadily contributes to the empowerment of the love in the heart within the lower ranges of the heart’s light frequencies.
     Atlantisite and its Stichtite inclusions are presented to the world to help the spiritual dabbler muddle forward towards the spiritual path.  Their contribution is slow and easy, and well within the expression of the dabbler’s will.

Rain as a Tool of Enlightenment

 Rainy days, sunny days!  How on Earth do they contribute to your enlightenment process?

The Sun contributes in an obvious way.  It provides light.  If you have read the section on the Sun and stars in my second book, The Story of Light, Through Heaven’s Gate, you will know that the Sun’s role as a portal in inter-dimensional space helps light move from the upper dimensions onto the Earth’s physical plane.  So, from the Sun, light from everywhere in the universe is potentially available.  We are only limited to our vibration’s ability to receive it.  Unfortunately, our vibration can be a serious limitation.  How high on the scale is our vibration?  What range of frequencies is it capable of receiving?  Are we working from the bar stool where light is very low indeed?  Or are we the apprentice to the realized Tibetan Lama, where the light of enlightenment is right round the corner?

Wherever our vibration vibrates on the high-low scale, rainy days can be a significant boost to our brilliance.  Much of the problem with our vibration’s inability to assimilate light is that the light is too well formed, too whole perhaps, and out of harmony with the body receiving it.  Moving light that is so unified and distinct in its construction into the human body may be beyond the synchronicity needed to make it happen.  Rain helps by processing the light available in the immediate environment.  The easiest way to understand it is to look to rainbows.  The Sun shining through the clouds produces rainbows of colours.  We see the seven primary colours of red, orange, yellow, blue, green, violet, and indigo.

The rain droplet acts as a prism to split light from its unified construct into separate bands of colours.  The body has a much better chance of receiving a single band of light than the full spectrum.  For example, the heart chakra resonates with green and pink hues.  The heart would more easily receive green and pink frequencies from the rainbow than it would if its own tissues were required to refract the green and pink from the unified spectrum.  The rain drop processes the immediately available light thus freeing up the body to receive it directly.  As another example, the orange and yellow hues harmonize best with the navel chakra (creativity) and are assimilated directly from a rain drop with no need to refract, filter, and redirect light.

Singing in the rain, just singing in the rain… as the song goes.  There is nothing quite like a rain shower for speeding up the enlightenment process.

Crystals for the Schizophrenic

    I was recently asked if there were a crystal that would be helpful for a person with Schizophrenia. 

    Schizophrenia was a topic of interest for me several years ago. I did not find it to be complex, but there is a significant amount of background knowledge to draw upon before the answer becomes clear. See references at the end of this article. 

    Young, or more accurately, baby souls come to Earth as part of their initial dive into Earthly consciousness. Being neonates in the soul department, the soul of the schizophrenic has very little experience on Earth and is, therefore, not adept at living here or anywhere else in the universe. The baby-soul has very little connection with its incarnation and, therefore, is in a deficit position in sending light to its incarnation. Such light (divine energy, or spirit) is very essential and necessary and must be strong enough to maintain the vibration of the person in a healthy way. The soul of the schizophrenic needs to build up the light within its incarnation to acquire a viable "person's" vibration that can withstand the assaults from any of the negative energies that may be present in the local environment (including the immediately local higher-dimensional environment). 

    Without a "viable" vibration, the schizophrenic person is subject to the invasion of mischievous lower fourth (or so) dimensional entities. Delusions of grandeur are the primary symptoms. These delinquent entities pose as known beings... Jesus, King Henry VIII, or whoever... by taking over the body and acting out. 

    This invasion is possible because the Etheric Magnetic Field is weak and most often has warps, holes, or black and dense areas. The Etheric Magnetic Field is responsible for the attraction and repulsion of the light frequencies and energies that maintain a person's normal vibration. A weak etheric field is vulnerable to the invasion of a foreign spirit entity. Essentially, the body is occupied by two very different spirits. The invading entity usually has the stronger will and, more or less, takes over for a time until it gets bored or has somewhere else to go. Don't get the idea that these entities are strong. They are not! They are predatory, but only to extremely weak individuals, who are weaker than themselves. 

    The solution... 

  1. is to strengthen the etheric magnetic field, which emanates from the physical body. Simply add light. Clear quartz and grounding stones such as Hematite, Obsidian, and Onyx ((((Careful!!! Real Onyx is almost impossible to get as it is almost always Agate that has been treated. “Natural black onyx is extremely rare, so the commercial black variety is nearly always agate that has been stained by the sugar-sulphuric acid treatment, soaked in a sugar solution and then heated in sulphuric acid to carbonize the sugar.” From: Firefly Guide to Gems, by Cally Oldershaw )))) are helpful. Quartz to bring the light, and black grounding to hold it. No need to use any of the more specialized crystals. Bringing light is the objective.
  2. The most effective treatment I know of would be my copper energy bed. Go here ( to see the image and brief write up on crystal layouts including the section on the copper energy bed. The copper bed, which is a sheet of roofing copper 7x3' and is also discussed in The Story of Light, Path to Enlightenment, Chapter 2, "The Etheric Body", is a natural energy conductor. It accelerates the etheric magnetic field and, by doing so, shifts the warps, holes, damaged spots, and dense areas of the afflicted person's etheric field. It bring the etherics into their natural state of flow. With a natural flow, free of warps and holes, the etherics can properly attract and repel light frequencies, as it is supposed to do, according to the appropriate state of the person's vibration. It thereby removes the vulnerability of the person to the invasion of nasty spirits.
  3. Another solution is to use the principles of our Earthly, free-will zone. Mischievous lower fourth dimensional entities and all other other-worldly beings are required to respect our free will on Earth. Simply tell those invading spirits to get lost. If they come back, tell them again. The schizophrenic person needs to exercise his/her free will and tell the invaders to go away. You cannot do it for them. Simply say: "Be Gone, foul entities!!". The protection ritual should have the same effect. It goes as follows: 

"I call upon the great white light to come down within to surround and protect me. Beings of light, who are working for my best and highest interest are invited to be here now and to work with me. All other entities must now leave and are commanded to do so. So be it." 

    Keep in mind that schizophrenic persons are the incarnations of really new souls that have next to no experience on any realm of consciousness let alone on a world with the severe challenges of the third dimension on Earth. The light from the crystals will help, a copper energy bed will help, and the expression of free will should be effective, but the person's soul has a long way to go on its journey into consciousness. The soul needs to learn how to connect with its incarnation and how to send light and in the proper quantity and quality. Such learning at the soul-level takes a number of incarnate experiences to accomplish. Perhaps, bring your expectations of the healing outcome for the schizophrenic person into line with the nature of the condition.

    Getting past the myths about how our spiritual bodies and the crystals work requires effort and discernment. No pill, no pablum, just work and an open mind to the truth.

The Implications of Balance in a World of Free Will

One + One = Two. Ever so simple!

Evolving thought comes as a person adds one known to another known to arrive at a third previously unknown from the synthesis of the first two. The rhetorical saying that I personally subscribed to some years back was: “One must see the obvious before one can see further. What will be obvious tomorrow is not obvious today; and what is obvious today was not obvious yesterday.”

One: We live in a world of free-will. We have the option to choose love or to choose not-love. Still pretty simple! Choosing love brings a person to better relationships, to the path of spirituality, to harmony, and to a greater awareness of the connection to the higher realms. Choosing not-love is just as simple. It brings anger, agitation, judgment, conflict, and a reduction in awareness of the connection to lower vibration.

Another One: Earth is a planet of balance. Unlike Mars, we on Earth are not inherently warriors, or adventurers, or pioneers. And unlike Venus, we are not inherently compassionate, kind, or loving. Some of us are each of these at different times in our lives. Earth sits in a position of balance between the planets of love and war. When imbalance rears its ugly head, most of us do not have any difficulty seeing the problems it brings. A great deal of the practice of spiritual healing is focused on re-establishing balance. Disease is an imbalance—too much cigarette smoke leads to cancer. Perhaps the most noticeable imbalances are those in the political arena. When dictators, democratic or not, impose their personal agendas, countries drift toward imbalances. Corruption is an imbalance.

One + Another One = Two: When you add free-will to Earth’s balancing act, the outcome becomes a choice to live in balance or not. When the will is in-balance and on the path of love, consideration is given to others. A person has tolerance, appreciation, and goodwill, without going overboard. Such a person has goodwill for others, but also for self—in balance.

On the other side of the coin, when the will is out-of-balance and the person has chosen to not-love, really bad things happen. What can a strong will from the dark side do? Search the internet for the movie: “Triumph of the Will”. The Nazis understood the will. World War 2 is a case of excessively strong will married to the choice to not-love on a global scale. Bringing the warring world back into balance in 1945 took an atomic bomb to establish peace. Does this grate against your illusions of how the world is on Earth. Good! One must see the obvious before one can see further.

Ask the question: why have we, on Earth, had to live under the illusive hope that there will somehow be world peace? Wars and interpersonal conflicts have been a part of the past for as long as memory allows. The present is no different. The threat of mutually assured destruction from thermo-nuclear war has kept the world at peace since 1945, but pseudo-wars have broken out in different parts of the globe continually—Khuzestan 1945, Indo-Pakistan 1947, Arab-Israel 1948 /56 /67 /73  /82 /87 /00 /06 /08 /12 /14 /21, China 1949, Korea 1953, Taiwan Strait 1954/58/95, Vietnam 1954/65, Tibet 1959, Cuba 1959, Congo 1960, Ethiopia 1964, South Africa 1966, Gulf War 1991/2003, and on and on. Current on-going conflicts (how is war defined by the UN?) include Israel-Palestine, Panjshir, Armenia-Azerbaijan, Afghanistan-Iran, Sudan-Ethiopia. There was just way too many to list every pseudo-war or conflict since 1945. As I write this, Russia is building up troops on its border with the Ukraine, and Biden and Putin are planning a meeting to address what is going on.

If you think world peace is possible, look at the fundamentals: balance and free-will.

First fundamental: As a planet of balance, there will always be imbalance to deal with. This does not say that we are not evolving towards higher vibrations, which we are. But relations on Earth, including our relationship with climate, will always experience intermittent states of imbalance, whether major or minor. War is easy to point to, but imbalances are inevitable and constant. As a quick example, our dog, Merlin, is full of bounding energy right now because the ambient temperature outside is -24C and we do not want to take him for a walk for both his and our sakes—dog-energy-imbalance.

Second fundamental: As a planet of free-will, there will always be people that choose love and those that choose not-love. War and conflict are in the realm of not-love. Spiritual practices, kindness, and peace are in the realm of love.

Add the fundamentals: When the wilful choice to not-love creates the imbalance of conflict, war happens. When the wilful choice to love creates the balance of higher vibration, spirituality happens.

The disappointment that arises is that denial leads to the thought that we are what we are not. Denial avoids the thought that we live among those that do not choose love and among those that do choose love. Denial leads us to think that others live as we do. Reality is: some people are good and some are bad. World peace runs up against the quandary of choosing love/not-love in a world of balance/imbalance.

The realization that comes with adding these two ‘1’s’ to make ‘2’ has set my mind at ease with the idea that, while I choose love (at least half the time), half of the rest of the world chooses not-love (at least half the time). As I am that I am (to be defined later), the Earth is what it is. World peace?...... LOL Great Expectations!

Makes me think of Neville Chamberlain's words as he waved a flimsy sheet of paper with Hitler's signature in 1938: "Peace in our Time".
