After my phase of studying and practicing under the teachings of Eric Pepin, I was feeling I was on the right path but I was having my doubts about some of Eric’s beliefs and the information he was putting forth. I discussed that in detail in Part 3. I was on the hunt for something else, I found a reference to a book from someone I follow on Instagram, showing glimpses from what looked like a very interesting book. I was deeply intrigued and bought it on the spot. Fewer books have made an impact on me like Becoming Supernatural by Dr. Joe Dispenza. It is a book that honestly evolved me as a person in mind, body, and spirit. This book complimented all of my previous studies, grounded my beliefs, and refined my practices. This was exciting stuff.
Dr. Dispenza brought New Age concepts to more of the mainstream without the New Age grandeur, which is great for the movement. He not only spoke as a genuinely compassionate and intelligent individual, he brought to the table, science, with data and case studies. This was the grounding validation that I had be looking for. It get’s hard to put your all into something on blind faith, in my opinion, this had the data and the logic to back it up.
Becoming Supernatural is a book with a massive amount of information. I am actually a bit overwhelmed in trying to cover the book in this post because there is just so much here. I could go on and on about all the great information here but whatever I say could never give it proper justice. Please read this book. Especially if you are very skeptical to all this; although quite frankly, if you are here you can’t be all that skeptical because with all the crazy shit I get into I figured you’d have left a long time ago… hahaha. But this book helped to validate and ground many of my core beliefs. Because there is so much here, I will just go over some of the key concepts that resonated with me most.
The Mind and Body Connection
As I had mentioned in Part 3 about the imagination, your imagination directly impacts your perspective of the world which in turn affects your reality. Dr. Dispenza took this a step further showing how it affects the physical body with case studies where for example you would have two groups. Over a period of time, one group did nothing, the others would sit in a meditative state and use their imagination alone to picture themselves working out their biceps. They were instructed to feel it and imagine in detail the muscles straining without actually flexing (purely the mind). At the end of the experiment the group that meditated the work out showed a 25% muscle gain in their biceps. This was demonstrated in other case studies as well. Case studies of healing major conditions using the mind were also discussed.
It is no mystery that the mind affects the body. If you are negative, angry, and or depressed; this puts stress on the body, creating an excess of negative chemicals to run through your system and over an extended period of time, will start to exhibit signs of sickness and disease. The opposite can be found, and has been openly acknowledged in medicine and science because it has to be accounted for in their experiments, is the the placebo effect. Positive thoughts and emotions producing healing chemicals and behaviors throughout the body. So if you train your mind to control your thoughts and to dwell on the life or person or the health that you want, this in turn conditions the body to that state. Dr. Dispenza describes this,
” … thoughts cause biochemical reactions in your brain that release chemical signals, and those chemical signals make the body feel exactly the way you were just thinking. Those feelings then cause you to generate more thoughts that make you feel the same way you were just thinking. So your thoughts drive your feelings, and your feelings drive your thought… “
Now this can be a very powerful and positive thing, or it can be a very powerfully devastating thing. This is based on your consciousness. If you live your life unconsciously it means that you live a reactive life. Things happen to you that will then affect your thoughts which then affect your feelings which then affects your body and with law of attraction at play, you are then feeding that same energy back into the system causing it to repeat itself, this puts you in an endless loop. This loop is an example of how we live in the past. As these events, thoughts and feelings get recorded to our memory and similar events occur or we are reminded consciously or unconsciously of those feelings, thoughts, or events, we repeat the cycle all over again.
So the goal here is to live consciously through intent and to reinforce the life that we want by putting our thoughts in positivity and imitating or becoming the way we want to feel, which causes our body to live in this healthy environmental state that you’ve created for it mentally and emotionally. Doing this consistently causes the mind and body to reset – as in, this is the normal state, and it in fact, becomes easier to maintain because this is the norm. While doing this and feeding that energy into the law of attraction, we are then reinforcing that state of energy into the universe and creating a loop of positivity, because this is what we wish to be, we are preparing our body for our future selves.
Organ and Cell Memory
As I described in Part 3 in regards to red blood cells and white blood cells where the white blood cells are seemingly conscious and have memory – this is how they are able to attack diseases more efficiently the next time they are encountered. There also exists memory and energy in our organs. The most significant and measurable is in the heart. The heart’s electromagnetic field can actually be measured from several feet away and actually generates more electromagnetic energy than the brain. Dr. Dispenza describes a case of organ memory,
“The most dramatic story illustrating this involved an 8-year-old girl who after receiving a heart transplant from a 10-year-old girl, began having nightmares about being murdered. The donor had indeed been murdered, and the perpetrator had not been caught. The patient’s mother took her to a psychiatrist who was convinced that the girl was dreaming about events that had actually occurred. They contacted the police, who opened an investigation using the girl’s detailed account of the murder, including information on the time and place of the crime, the weapon, the physical characteristics of the criminal, and the clothing the murderer was wearing. The killer was identified, arrested, and convicted.”
If this sounds outrageous, there are plenty of stories out there describing similar events of transplanted organ patients adopting traits of their donors.
When I first got into meditation, chakras were always a hot topic, but I didn’t get it. I looked at that like other New Age foo foo as something made up to give definition and purpose in handling or balancing your energies, but is all just made up. Eric Pepin described it as electrical centers for the locations associated with them, and that simply acknowledging them by focusing on them activates that energy… okay, that makes a lot more sense. Dr. Dispenza describes it in more biological terms, here is his description of the first, or root chakra,
“.. when your first center (the seat of your reproductive glands) is activated, with energy, its mind has a very specific agenda and intention. When you as a conscious being have a thought or fantasy – that’s consciousness, by the way, acting on neurological tissue – the next thing you know, your body is physiologically changing and therefore so is your energy. Your body secretes chemicals and hormones from those corresponding glands to emotionally prepare you for intercourse. You have more energy in that center now, and it’s releasing its own specific frequency carrying an intentional message. “
This was made a lot of sense me. Describing that each chakra represents a system of the body with their own chemicals, intention, and frequency. So meditating on those locations acknowledges those centers, supplying them with energy from this quantum field or ’empty space’. Feeding them feelings of love and appreciation, that attention activates them to function more cohesively with the rest of body, which inspires healing chemicals and behaviors from within that system. Brilliant, now I understand.
Elevated Emotions and Manifestation (Law of Attraction)
Eric Pepin also describes the importance of elevated emotions because it reinforces intention. Dr. Dispenza put an exclamation point on that which really drilled into me how important it really is. He states that manifestation is the process of broadcasting to the universe, along this universal consciousness wave, a unique frequency or electromagnetic signal of your intent, where complimenting signals would become attracted to and be pulled back to you in the form of opportunities and synchronicities . Your intention from the mind provides the electrical charge. Your emotion creates a magnetic field, together, they form the electromagnetic field. You then compliment that with what I described in The Mind and Body Connection section, where you live, think, feel, and become in your thoughts, emotions and body that which you wish to manifest. I associate it with the concept of fake it till you make it. That is exactly what we are describing. If you do a manifestation meditation to broadcast that signal and in your daily life “fake it till you make it”, similar or complimenting frequencies or signals are going to be attracted to you. If you don’t believe this, think of what you and other people have attracted to your life. For a more contrast example – If you look like a criminal, act like a criminal, talk like a criminal – guess what kind of friends you are going to have? You attract what you put out.
Check out here how Dr. Dispenza describes intention and how it works.
So elevated emotion, I can’t emphasize enough about how important this is. In my development, surrendering to elevated emotion has had the greatest tangible impact. Eric Pepin discussed it so I put it into practice, but after reading Becoming Supernatural, he states it with passion about how necessary it is, so I took that to heart and stepped it up and the results were exponential. As I’ve been developing I’ve been creating my own meditation audio to accompany it. I ended up combining my chakra meditations with manifestation meditations. Because from my practices in the teachings with Eric Pepin, he suggested when focusing on the heart chakra, to play some instrumental music that uplifts you with feeling emotions of gratitude. Dr. Dispenza spoke the same thing and also described it in doing manifestation meditations to evoke the feelings of already having been gifted or achieved that which you wish to manifest. He also stated that the emotion of gratitude is one that should always be evoked because gratitude already projects that the gift has already been received so it puts you in the proper mindset (see the video above). So I thought, well during the chakra meditation, when activating the heart chakra, since I’m already evoking this feeling of love and gratitude, then why not do the manifestation there as well. Kill two birds with one stone (sorry birds) haha. – no birds were harmed in the telling of the joke. ahem…
Anyway, the results were powerful. So much so, that I extended the meditation on the heart chakra for another song. The first song, I use to express my thanks for the blessings in my life. I picture all those close to me that have passed and I picture myself hugging and laughing with each of them. I think about hugging my daughter and just feeling as much love and gratitude as I can. I completely surrender into it. The next song I continue that emotion by picturing what I want to manifest. I picture my dream home in a beautiful jungle lagoon surrounded by green mountains. I picture myself walking out of my bungalow out onto the beach, sand between my toes, and paddle boarding through the lagoon, and as the music climaxes, I picture me and my daughter holding hands and flying over the lagoon just laughing and smiling. Every time, every single time I do the meditation I tear up with tears of joy and gratitude. Its such a powerful feeling… Then I continue to the third-eye and crown chakras. Any sadness, fear, negativity, or depression I had before the meditation is gone 100%, and that is no joke.
Meditation And The After Effects
How It Feels
Let me start by saying that during a meditation, my personal experience is this.. My body feels like a giant sandbag, sometimes it tingles and my body goes numb, but not in a lack of blood sort of way, that feels different, so there’s no danger there. In my belly, I can feel a very distinct welling of an emotion of some kind. If I try to describe it, it’s like this euphoric ball that is growing in your belly and it seems to intensify or increase in size the deeper into the meditation I go. Before it would take a few minutes for the feeling to develop, now I can get it in about 3 seconds. It also sticks around afterward but I’ll get into that in a bit. My breathing goes super shallow, I actually sometimes seem to forget to breath, not in a scary way or anything you just inhale. I end up in a very deep trance, I feel as if it is the same thing as being in a self hypnosis. I actually don’t think there is a difference. My head feels like a balloon, light, airy and expanded.
In meditations you can use your breath, mantras, tones or whatever to help you get into the state, I prefer tones. For me, following the breath in and out and focusing on it going down and up, is too much going on… for me the tone is singular and steady. I try to become the tone, like humming it in my head and becoming the vibration. I balance on it like on a balance beam. You lose focus and fall off, and I refocus and get back on. But this is just me, do whatever works for you.
I’m In The Zone – Time To Play
Inside my airy and inflated head haha, when you are finally in the zone, this is when its play time. Any sort of psychic practice (healing, manifestation, remote viewing, astral traveling, spirit interaction, whatever) will pretty much be applicable here. Not that I’m good or competent at any of those, but you definitely get the feeling of – holy shit this feels freaking powerful, there’s gotta be something to this. This is a very real feeling so you can be skeptical about what all you might be able to do, but for sure you will feel that you should be able to do something pretty powerful in this state. Personally, I want to try it all because who knows what might stick or what I might have a knack for. It’s like getting a new sports car – you gotta try this puppy out and see what it can do! One of the many things I try to do is to expand my consciousness beyond the bounds of my head to make my awareness omnipresent. This is a prerequisite to remote viewing and astral traveling. I am still working on this. I can only get it for brief moments, but its amazing when you get it, because you feel endless. But its a work in progress.
Interaction In The Spirit Realm
I like how Eric Pepin describes in working with things like that. If you focus on it, it will disappear. So if something happens you can’t react or focus on it, you have to sort of soft gaze it with your peripherals and appreciate it but don’t focus on it or you will lose it. He is exactly right. This always happens to me whenever something cool happens then you suddenly focus on it cause its …well… cool… then it disappears and you have to start all over again. You have to train yourself not to react.
My meditations typically last from 40-60 mins. I like longer meditations because otherwise I feel rushed. I also typically resist spoken guided meditations – they are good to start with just to get the flow of a meditation. But what happens to me all the time is that I will be following a guided meditation and then you zone out for a second – then you snap back and you resume following the guided meditation but I lost my place. I was walking in a field now suddenly I’m in space, what did I miss?
Coming Out Of It
After I come out of it, in all honesty, I feel high on cannabis. My head is still floating, my body feels fluffy (not like fat or bloated) haha, sometimes I stumble a bit. The euphoric feeling in the belly is still there. I feel well rested, like I just woke up from a kick ass power nap. Now you can snap out of it and ground yourself by moving around, getting a snack or something. Dr. Dispenza recommends that you lay down for about 30-45 mins and let the healing power of the chakra meditation soak into your autonomic nervous system. I like to sit in a quite place or sit outside somewhere quiet and let it soak in, so I think that’s pretty much the same as what Dr. Dispenza suggests. I like to look around and try to see things in a more conscious way, maybe look for energy cues. Its very relaxing and peaceful, and most of all happy, contented, and blissful.
So depending on how deep your meditations are and how often you’ve been keeping up with your meditation practices, this will dictate how long the effects will last and how intensive it will feel. I’ve been meditating for about 1-2 hrs every 2-3 days for about 1 year now. I meditated the year before that quite a bit, but about 1 year now since I got into doing it very religiously (i hate – dislike that word). What you will notice is that because of the mediation practice of constantly letting go of thoughts and keeping your mind quite, your mind gets used to that and while you are awake, those nagging thoughts are further away and come less often, so you get a much clearer head. Then also, if you start to get negative feelings, sadness, fear, depression – then you treat it like you do when a thought intrudes your meditation, you let it pass. Of course there may be things you need to address and you address them… but you let the feeling pass away. If it is something significant like a death in the family, let those emotions play out first, just don’t dwell on those feelings for too long. What we are talking about is not suppression, it is letting go of things that don’t serve you. Pushing away the worries without addressing the problem is not the way. Push away the worry cause it does not serve you, but address the problem.
So because I do my meditations regularly, if I start to get those feelings creeping up on me more in frequency or I notice that they tend to linger, then I know I need to do another meditation to re-balance myself. Also if I notice my mind is starting to get more distracted with thoughts, I know I need to meditate. If notice I start craving more distractions like games, movies, drinking or whatever, I know I need to meditate – it’s okay here and there but if you find yourself in more of a craving, then that is a sign you need to balance. Although I have had the opposite too, where focusing too much on spirituality, I feel like I need to do those grounding things like have some beer, go out, or whatever, but its not so much a craving of my mind to distract from my reality but rather my soul needs it. I think its my spirit’s way to tell me that I need a balance of all things, so indulge it! But through all that, after the meditation for even days after, I still feel that bliss, contentment and I can even still consciously feel that euphoric ball in my belly. If its a tumor you can be sure as shit I’m going to post a follow up post hahaha – I’m terrible.
My point is here that these are very real and tangible results. If you up keep that balance, you can keep away all those negative feelings and depression. I am currently going on 4 months into my divorce so it’s not like I am in a place where everything is all gravy in my life. I had attempted the divorce years ago before I had done meditation and it was very different. I was losing it. I fell apart emotionally and had a hard time moving forward because I couldn’t think straight. This time it has been hard being away from my daughter – she and I are very close, but as a result of my meditation practice, I can say that I’m about as happy as I have ever been in my life, despite going through the hardest thing I have ever had to face in my life. So to me, that says something about the power of meditation. I’m happy because in my meditations when projecting the emotions of my future self – I am joyously grateful because my ex, my daughter, and I are all happy and are all better for it and that’s worth looking forward to.
My Chakra Meditation Practice
My latest for chakra meditation, manifestation and spirit guide connection can be found here…
I strongly recommend it. It may be for the more advanced that are familiar with and comfortable with maintaining long meditative states (1 hr) and it also incorporates multiple uses but beginners can take it slowly by using say about 15 minutes of it to practice getting into the state, then slowly work into doing the chakra meditations, then elevated emotions, manifestations, then finally incorporating spirit guide connection. Enjoy!
