A REMINDER WHY MEDITATION IS SO CRITICAL!
Christ Jesus through Virginia Essene
Dear ones of the Love Corps family and all beings of good will,
Although I meet with many of you light servers within the quietude of your own personal meditation times, and in those larger group meetings and meditations that we encourage, I also appreciate the regularity of these written messages. They keep us in touch, so to say, and the messages are related to one another somewhat like chapters in a book as chronicles of my sharing’s.
Indeed, our present meetings are precious to me because in them I can share current information that is more immediate than waiting for a book to be published. This leads me into some facts today about the physical values of meditation that you may not yet know. So with another spiritual energy embrace, beloveds, let me proceed to the topic at hand by furthering your knowledge about how meditation, and quiet times, actually gift you with light...or spiritual food.
Many of you are very aware that you want light and that you can obtain it through loving thoughts and actions to humans, to planet Earth, and to all her other inhabitants—as well as to what you call life in space! You realize that frequencies from higher realms can reach you best when your left brain is not busily engaged in affairs of everyday life...but is calm enough so that your intuitive, right brain can shift into that quieter realm of contact that spirit provides when invited. For those many humans who did not desire to have the light, history paints an ugly picture of their civilizations—wars, murder and horrors beyond understanding.
Of course, many prior civilizations have desired the phenomenon of what you call light for healing the body and sharpening mental acuity...for both the attainment of health and also for the pursuit of spiritual truth! Indeed, the sun played a central role in major ancient cultures such as India, Egypt, Greece, Rome—and many others.
Ancient Greece had the sun god Apollo who represented both health and reason. And in the Vedic scriptures from Hindu religious literature, the sun god Surya, (meanng “the Supreme Light,”) heals, illuminates the intellect, and cultivates wisdom.
Indeed, since time began, sunlight has been regarded as a source of comfort, happiness, and security. It has encouraged great artists such as Rembrandt to portray enlightenment in his pictures, and innumerable philosophers to share their spiritual thoughts with humanity.
Fortunately, you are presently at the dawn of a scientific revolution in your deepening understanding of the phenomenon of light that influences both the pursuit of truth and the attainment of good health.
Particularly in the realm of mental health today, the conflict of light and darkness manifests itself unconsciously—foremost in both oral and written expressions. This is particularly true in the use of light as a metaphor for self-knowledge in relation to the Spiritual source. Yet, beloveds, as humanity is beginning to cleanse the past doors of limited perception, and moving into greater realms of light, this often brings an emerging epidemic of depression in materialistic societies.
In 2007 some scientists found that by using MRI brain imagine techniques with short wavelength blue light while participants were engaged in a memory-related task, responsive areas of the brain could be identified. Those responsive areas were the brain stem and thalamus—the regions that regulate memory, alertness, and mental focus. It may well be that by providing blue light environments that are tailored to the thalamus; each of these human capacities could be greatly enhanced, proving what your great earthly being called Leonardo da Vince stated centuries ago. He insisted that meditating under a predominately blue light could enhance concentration ten-fold. (Regarding the blue light’s other influences, I will ask Virginia to share an experience one of her hospice clients had some years ago.)
As you now understand, the thalamus also relays sensory information to the cerebral cortex (the outermost layer of neural tissue in the brain) which coordinates consciousness. Indeed, expanding the potential of the thalamus could conceivably achieve the vision of your 19th century poet, William Blake, who wrote that “If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it truly is—infinite.”
So your acts of meditation do strengthen the brain, whether you can personally observe it or not, and we of heavenly realms repeatedly advise and recommend this activity as a tool given to all humanity to help them retain their spiritual connection while living in a material world, far from home.
One of the valuable gifts from meditation is that it slows the aging process by establishing and maintaining greater connections between vital brain activity areas. Indeed, what you call the uncinate fasciculus—or the “white matter” that connects the hippocampus and amygdala to the frontal cortex—controls higher level thinking, problem solving, and planning.
PLEASE STOP READING NOW AND REMEMBER ANY RECENT SITUATION THAT ESPECIALLY NEEDED YOUR SPIRITUAL CONNECTION TO YOUR HIGHER SELF.
What did you do to resolve this situation? What thoughts and actions were necessary? And did the results turn out the way you wanted?
If there wasn’t any particular situation to ponder, just smile and give gratitude that you absolutely do have help anytime in the future it’s needed! And always remember that your own personal groundedness, or balance, is both a profound gift for yourself, but also a gift to both local and world consciousness with their ever-increasing challenges.
In addition to quieting your mind, however, we are not suggesting that you ignore nature or ignore receiving the healing power of the sun; the sunlight actually furnishes several important health properties, particularly vitamin D. As you may know, vitamin D is a nutrient vital to protecting against bone thinning and certain internal cancers. Although some foods contain modest amounts of vitamin D, the sun is still the body’s main source.
Some studies have found that people living in sun-rich areas below the equatorial regions near Australia produced 3.4 times more vitamin D that people in Great Britain, and 4.8 times more than residents in sun-deprived Scandinavia. Moreover, mortality rates from breast, prostate, and colon cancer are also lowered by vitamin D.
One doctor proposes that just a few minutes of mid-day sun in the summer can produce 1,000 IU of vitamin D for every 10% of the body exposed, with 4,000IU as the recommended daily amounts. We must warn you that such recommendations are not accurate for every person’s body, and we prefer that you frequently get moderate exercise outside—(weather permitting)—not only for vitamin D, but also to boost your brain’s serotonin levels to adequate levels.
There is one recommendation about being out in the sun which is related to what you call “sun screen.” You have many bottles and containers of this product from a wide variety of sources to protect against premature skin aging—and even ward off the potential of skin cancer. While we obviously would never recommend that you spend countless hours under a scorching summer sun, we do urge you to get out into “the fresh air and sunshine” ... something caring mothers around the world have said for generations. And we do encourage out-of-doors exercise that brings nature’s richness to aid your body, mind, and emotional balance.
You are the family of light and we will never leave you comfortless unless you deprive yourself of our love and support through willful disregard of what your soul desires to
Then pause to accept a massive outpouring of our love now, and remember that love has always been, and always will be, available to you— and lovingly shared upon request.
We say it often. You are the beloved of an eternal and caring parent! PLEASE call upon it, and us, so that one day soon we will all be together in the realms of glory you call heaven!
I remain one of your many helpers. So if you choose, call on me, but always remember there are the many other teachers, guides and angels who care for you, too!
Blessed be, dear hearts. Just feel our love!!!!!!!!
MESSAGE FROM VIRGINIA
Dear friends and Love Corps family,
This has been a tough year for me, personally, so I am going to share some very private health information with you in case I’m slow doing future Love Corps Newsletters. OK?
Anyhow, immediately upon return, my pulmonary doctor put me in the hospital to get my breathing stabilized, and while there I had a little heart flutter so they kept me almost a week in the Cardiac area—with the most thoughtful care I could ever imagine
Then in April I fell getting out of my car and hit the asphalt driveway with quite a crash. Fortunately, a new neighbor across the street from my mobile home—whom I hardly know—heard the loud scream I made and immediately came to take me to an urgent-care type of hospital.
After 4 hours of exams I was able to limp enough to come home—thank goodness. However, at age 83, a full recovery has been extremely slow and I must walk with either a cane at home—or with a walker for major excursions. Since all my family is dead, I am ably living alone but with the help of health care workers, as needed...and supported and encouraged by local friends...and the kindness of some of you folks, too. Indeed, I am truly grateful for the blessings I enjoy—even while physically struggling sometimes.
To ask for this helpful appointment, Jesus says it is preferable that you will have read either his first book—New Teachings for an Awakening Humanity— or our latest EBook called ”What Every Human Must Know”—so there can be a more in-depth sharing. (The New Teachings for an Awakening Humanity book came out years ago but may still be available from Amazon books.)
The E-Book form of What Every Human Must Know is available now to be downloaded/delivered straight onto your computer from www.Lightrivermedia.com. Catherine Clemett is the owner of www.Lightrivermedia.com and promises she will also have the regularly printed book available in the next few weeks. She is in complete charge of all sales of the What Every Human Must Know book—in either a printed or E-Book form, SO PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME TO BUY ANY BOOKS!
A wonderful chiropractor, who was also a spiritual brother/good friend of mine, had a client who was dying and didn’t want to go and die in a regular hospital. So he asked if we had a spare hospice bed for her, which we did, and he brought her over right away.
After they arrived with her suitcase and the nurse was making her comfortable, he told me he wanted to do 2 special things to ease her transition. First, he wanted to hang a picture of her favorite saint on the wall, across from the foot of her bed, so she could see it, and second he wanted to put in a blue light bulb in the lamp at her bedside, which was a very unusual request. I asked him about the blue light bulb and was told blue light is very comforting, which was news to me. Then he left after warning me that she needed close observance that night and asked me to call him—“If anything unusual happens.”
Very late that night our patient seemed to awaken and make a little noise so I approached to see what was needed. Then, without any warning, the saint’s picture on the wall across from the foot of her bed suddenly fell completely off the wall —clattered loudly on the floor, causing the woman to rise up slightly. We asked if she was alright but she never spoke again—and died shortly thereafter, very peacefully.
“If you want to touch the past, touch a rock.
It is my joy that you Love Corps folks are continuing to touch the hearts and minds of humanity in a positive way—and I thank you for your efforts in our common goal.
Abundant peace and joy to all of you from your spiritual sister,
