I feel your pain: an empath’s guide to staying balanced

Do you often wonder which emotions are yours, and which belong to someone else? When people you care about are hurting, do you feel their pain so deeply that it’s hard to separate—even after they’re out of crisis mode? In relationships, do you donate so much of your own natural resources that you suffer from a chronic energy shortage? And with those you’re close to, is it hard to figure out what your own needs are—or even what you want for dinner? If the answer is yes, it’s highly likely that you’re an empath.

What does it mean to be an empath, and why is it fraught with these basic life challenges? Derived from the Greek “em” (in) and “pathos” (feeling), the term empathic means you’re able to “feel into” others’ feelings. But for empaths, this sensitivity is magnified to the nth degree. An empath is more tuned in, more empathic, and more sensitive to others than the average empathic person.

Being this tuned in, empathic, and sensitive is an asset, but it comes at great cost. Empaths are unusually vulnerable to emotional contagion, to “catching” others’ emotions in much the same way that you’d catch a cold or flu. But it doesn’t stop there: empaths get physically ill and suffer from anxiety, depression, chronic stress, professional burnout, and pain syndromes more often than their less empathic counterparts. And empaths often need lots of down time after social engagements, “recovery periods” at the end of a workday, or extended intervals of being alone. They can feel fundamentally different from others: As a conference-goer recently put it, “It’s like I’m an alien from another planet—no one understands me, and sometimes I don’t even get myself.” The empaths I work with often confess a deep-seated fear that this “alien thing” means something is wrong with them, that they’re somehow damaged.

As a clinical psychologist and yoga therapist, I’ve supervised psychotherapists, yoga teachers, and yoga practitioners for more than two decades—and a great many of them are empaths. I’ve helped them identify who they are and develop the skills to lead more balanced and healthy lives. And as a “recovering empath” myself, I’ve had to walk a parallel path. From this personal and professional immersion, I’ve found that it helps just to name the issue, to hammer a framework of understanding around it. And then, armed with tools from yoga, mindfulness, and psychology, we can work on balance. We can create a blueprint for physical well-being, emotional health, and more rewarding relationships.

Are you an empath? Here are five signs that you might be—and that your wonderful qualities, when left unchecked, can compromise your health.

THE EMPATH CHECKLIST:

1. You struggle with boundaries. It’s tough to know where you leave off and others begin, which experiences are yours and which come from others, when to open your channels for connection or to close them.

2. You’re often not in your body. For empaths, all that “feeling into” the experiences of others means that you dissociate: you leave your body or “shuttle” out of direct experience as a matter of course.

3. You’re vulnerable to emotional contagion. You absorb the emotions of others, from your boss and colleagues at work to your family and friends, and even the check-out guy at Whole Foods.

4. You’re prone to nervous system overdrive. It doesn’t take much—sometimes just a draining conversation or a party that’s loud and over-populated—to propel your nervous system into alarm mode.

5. You have trouble with intimacy. Your relationships are filled with intense bonding and equally intense separations. You can merge with others at the drop of a hat, but get so entangled that an “emotional exorcism” of someone you care about is often the only way to get your space.

Even when we’re aware of them, these patterns are hard to change. They’re wired into us deeply, at levels the conscious mind can’t reach. For that reason, to be a healthy empath requires daily practice. Here are the key issues and therapeutic practices that form the heart of the journey. The challenge is that much of the healing needs to happenthrough the body. And for empaths, the body can be a wasteland of sorts, a long-abandoned battleground.

Lest you think this is a “chick thing,” there are male empaths, too. It’s just that the process of natural selection draws empathic males underground more quickly than it does their female counterparts because sensitivity, empathy, and attunement to others are considered “feminine” traits. Male empaths can be ostracized for these qualities, and learn to bury them from sight. As a male empath in one of our therapeutics clinics recently said, “I take on other people’s experiences all the time. I have a huge amount of anxiety and depression, and it’s hard to know what’s mine and what’s someone else’s. But when I talk about it to my friends, they tell me to quit being ‘such a girl.’” Male empaths need the same kind of body-based support that female ones require.

RX FOR EMPATHS:

Empaths have an extraordinary capacity for union. They’re great in a crisis; people in need call forth their deepest abilities. They make gifted, intuitive healers. They see others deeply, well beyond the surface. And they have a magnetic quality that draws people to them. Yet flanking these positive aspects are several shadow sides. Here’s what you’ll want to focus on to help you live in a state of physical and emotional equilibrium.

1. Develop Boundaries. As an empath, you give too much space to others’ emotional lives. You solve their problems with ease and help them restore equilibrium, often at the expense of your own energy stores. But even when no one needs you, the habit of “trolling for crisis” means you’re always on alert, and makes it tough to return to the shores of your own awareness.

Empath Rx: Creating boundaries isn’t a matter of mental discipline, of “just say no.” When you’re an empath, limits need to be integrated into your physicality. The core body is your seat of power: What helps is a yoga practice that brings your focus into your deep, intrinsic core where you can develop “prana in the belly.” This four-pronged core body program includes awareness, strength, flexibility, and the capacity to release. Working with the core in this holistic way helps you ground back into your body and replenish your energy stores. Mindfulness tools can also help you monitor where—or on whom—you’re focused and notice when you’ve migrated into someone else’s direct experience.

2. Bring Awareness into Your Body. Imagine that you’ve left to visit a friend in another city and forgotten to lock your house. And that’s not all: You’ve left all the doors and windows wide open, so anyone can get in. This is what it’s like to be an empath. You can abandon your own home, your direct experience, in favor of someone else’s. The more you do this, the more difficult it is to return. What makes matters worse is that not inhabiting your body (and the moment) keeps the benefits of yoga and other mindfulness-based practices just beyond your reach.

Empath Rx: Offset this tendency toward dissociation with slow, mindful vinyasa yoga sequences that link movement with breath. Empaths can spend a whole yoga class or practice on auto-pilot: adding anchors for awareness will help bring you back to your body and to the present. Contemplative practices such as meditation and restorative yoga give you the time, space, and silence you need to get re-embodied again.

3. Balance Your Nervous System.

An empath’s environment is like “emotional satellite radio” with surround sound and hundreds of channels. Your nervous system surfs the dial constantly, flipping from station to station to listen to others’ emotional broadcasts: your boss’s complaints about work, your partner’s anxiety over a potential job loss, your best friend’s sadness about a breakup. These information-processing demands can catapult your nervous system into overdrive, which reinforces anxiety, depression, and chronic stress. On top of that, the incessant electronic requests of e-mail and social media can overload and exhaust you.

Empath RX:

Learn to notice the signs of nervous system overdrive, such as that inner sense of something always “humming” beneath the surface, an elevated heart rate, and increased emotional reactivity. Practice simple breathwork techniques like nasal breath (and if accessible, nasal breath with a longer exhale) to slow your heart and bring your nervous system back to baseline. Regular breaks from social media also help, as do practices that balance your nervous system and quiet your mind, like Restorative Yoga.

4. Learn to Regulate Intimacy.

For empaths, intimacy comes down to matters of space and reciprocity. You can feel like Dr. Doolittle’s Push-Me-Pull-You: Sometimes you crave intense emotional, physical, and spiritual bonding. At other times, you need so much space that having your own personal galaxy might feel too crowded. When you want to merge, you can threaten people who have a higher need for breathing room; when you need wide-open space, you can appear remote and withholding. And when it comes to reciprocity, you’re rarely comfortable on the receiving end. Your giving nature attracts narcissistic people who crave the mirroring and validation you offer. In the meantime, you’re able to create a fantasy in which the relationship lives up to its potential—and you inhabit that fantasy as though it were real. You learn to subsist on a diet of mere “emotional breadcrumbs,” and can suffer from malnourishment.

Empath Rx:

To build your ability to receive care from others, try bodywork or yoga therapy with someone you trust. You can also balance a personal yoga practice with group classes to strengthen your sense of community. If your job requires any degree of public exposure, or you work as a healer, you may need stretches of alone time to reestablish your equilibrium. Here again, mindfulness-based practices can help you notice feelings of being devoured and interrupt the cycle of merger and isolation before you reach the breaking point.

5. Develop emotional immunity.

Empaths pick up on other’s emotions and even their direct inner experience so rapidly that it’s hard to indentify what’s happened. As a result, a large part of your anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and immune issues can belong not to you, but to someone else. And just like your nervous system and physical body, your emotional body and immune system struggle with boundaries. They have difficulty discerning what’s you and what’s not. This leaves you vulnerable to emotional issues like anxiety, depression, and chronic stress, as well as auto-immune illnesses such as allergies, lupus, or fibromyalgia.

Empath Rx:

Practice interpersonal hygiene: using mindfulness, notice how you feel after spending time with others. You’ll soon learn which people are hazardous to your health, and you can limit your interactions with them. Also try lymph-stimulating asana sequences and Restorative Yoga to stimulate your capacity for constructive internal reflection.

THE EMPATH’S FILTER:

One of the more insidious consequences of Empath Syndrome is having a very thin, membranous emotional skin which reacts intensely to real or perceived invasion. This skin is allergic to a variety of foods, social settings, and other people—and on the inside, it mimics the auto-immune pattern of self-hatred. This exposes our nerve endings to all the shame, rage, and deep, existential grief inside us and in everyone around us. An offhand comment from a loved one, a request for help from someone when our resources are at a low ebb, or a harmless comment from that “weird guy” at the gym can get under our skin in microseconds. This sets off an alarm, and we immediately filter that person as either “dangerous” or “safe.” Long ago, that type of filtering was necessary for our survival but as we mature, it becomes less adaptive, even destructive. Because we doubt the strength of this filter (after all, it’s tough for us to set boundaries), we construct a narrative around the experience. Once we’ve developed a juicy story about the person who got under our skin, we repeat it. We pull for confirmation from others, as though having an army behind this filter will help it feel more like a fortress.

Having the armed forces behind us can feel comforting initially, but our actions only strengthen the sensitivity of the danger/safe filter. And since our narrative is rarely limited to one encounter, we practice it over time. Soon, it gains a brittle hardness. This outer shell protects us from injury (good), but also from intimacy with others and our deepest selves (not so good).

Often, the deepest (and hardest!) work happens long after the interaction is over, when our nervous system is back to balance and the temporary comfort our narrative gave us has dissipated. Our task is to go back to the filter, to our initial decision in the moment, and reevaluate. We can (this is so hard!) reconsider and re-examine the encounter from all angles, balancing the harsh light of hindsight with a healthy dose of self-compassion. We can even ask others for input—preferably those who don’t indulge our stories, and who want to see us grow.

Over time, we can acknowledge where our filters make errors or blind us. We can change their sensitivity settings to be more open. We can acknowledge where they make errors or may blind us. Then we’ve got something to grown on. The challenging part: Empaths have a really tough time changing this filter because it feels so necessary for safety. What’s more, adjusting the settings actually stretches our “emotional skin.” This expansion is uncomfortable: It can feel in some ways like a “little death” and it can jolt the nervous system into caffeinated overdrive. This is when the quieter aspects of yoga and mindfulness like Restorative Yoga can help promote constructive internal reflection, and help us assimilate the changes we’ve made to our filter. I’ve been in this place many times and experienced the struggle myself. And while our asana practice helps us be more embodied, this epic battle with our filter is carried out on the very plains of engagement where mindfulness and yoga try so hard to lead us.

IT’S LIKE A TATTOO:

Empaths often ask me, with great sincerity, “How do I get rid of this?” Their poignant request reflects the cost they pay, in time and effort, to achieve a measure of balance. But being an empath is like having a tattoo: the imprint is there for life, no matter what you may do to change it. These practices aren’t a time-limited, do-it-for-three-months-and-all-will-be-well kind of program. Rather, they’re a lifelong journey of self-discovery. But it needn’t be a life sentence. Having a daily empath-balancing practice improves our relationship with ourselves. It juices our creative process. It improves emotional regulation. It deepens our work life, and enhances our physical health.

Empaths need community, a tribe of our own to belong to, and a shared language through which we can first unload the burden of being built as we are. Yet once we’ve ingested this sense of belonging, our task is to resist the temptation to rest there forever, and cultivate instead both personal and shared practices that bolster our body, calm our mind, and help us ground into and explore ourselves. We do this first in shallow waters and then in time, the deep.

It may seem that transformation is about transcendence: that we somehow leave behind our flaws to achieve a measure of spiritual perfection. Yet true spiritual evolution and emotional health entail a reckoning with and even valuing of the unique set of challenges we’ve been given. Sometimes the holes in our evolution—the very things that we lack—plait a deep thread of awareness into the fabric of our self-study. We’ll spend the rest of our lives unraveling that thread, and weaving and reweaving it. And there’s a measure of honor that comes from having to work so hard at the skills that others seem to master so naturally.

And the reward for all this hard work of integration? There will come an extended moment in time when something or someone will activate your nervous system, stimulate your filter and the narrative that comes with it, and tie you in emotional knots. But this time, you’ll recognize it as it happens. You’ll be able to enter a dialogue. You’ll say to yourself something like, “Oh- here it is again—it’s happening! This person has bumped right up against my need to feel special,” or whatever it is they’ve activated. You’ll notice the signs of activation: elevated heart rate, difficulty breathing, intense emotional reactivity, and an immediate gravitational pull toward a difficult story. “They must not care about me at all,” you’ll start to think. Then suddenly, you’ll remember to feel where that activation is concentrated in your body: often, for empaths, it’s the upper core or solar plexus area. You’ll bring your hands to that area and breathe deeply into it for several minutes. And if it’s still highly engaged, you’ll opt to practice a little longer until you hit your “reset button.”

And all at once, you’ll feel the deep worth of daily empath practices. You’ll find a simultaneous sense of yielding and resilience. You’ll feel a beautiful solidity, as though you’ve colored in your outlines. You’ll discover a newfound sense of your own intrinsic value in the world. And this will be matched by the joy that comes bubbling up from the wellspring of your body.

Being an empath asks us to become fluent in the field of paradox, to metabolize opposing concepts and challenges. How can we engage in rich relationship with others and the world around us, for instance, while finding the silence and space to discover the self and world inside us? How do we find balance between matter and spirit, inner awareness and outer focus, or self and other? And how might we engage in the dynamic interchange between the concept of evolution—which hints at a future self—and the self we are right here, right now?

It may be later in life by the time we truly blossom, but the time, patience, and inner work are well worth the effort. When we learn to regulate our nervous system, create healthy boundaries in our body, and adjust the filter through which we evaluate direct experience, we become truly resilient. And instead of making ourselves small to fit the world around us, to find a tribe where we belong, we learn to blossom on our own. This blossoming draws others to us. And an empath in full flower is an extraordinary thing to witness: vulnerable yet resilient, intuitive yet grounded, and deeply creative, expressive, and magnetic—but with a fully functioning sense of where and how these qualities balance.

CUTTING THE LINK WITH NEGATIVE PEOPLE OR EXPERIENCES

letting_go_of_balloons__no__02_by_redandbluecrayons-d5cjc9p

Cutting Cords
“Cutting cords doesn’t mean, “I don’t love you or care about you anymore.” Cord cutting doesn’t necessarily lead to break-ups or abandoned relationships. It simply means that you are releasing the dysfunctional parts of your relationships. Remember, fear is the opposite of love, and etheric cords (and all attachments) are created from fear”. Doreen Virtue

Positive and Negative Cords

Cords are a method of high speed communication and sharing energy. Healthy cords create a nurturing sharing of information and energy. Unhealthy cords can be a huge drain or a means of control. They are attached by mutual agreement, but there are lots of ways to persuade, trick, or con people into being corded. Often they were useful, but outlive their usefulness. The cord may have been very important when you were 2 years old, but now in adulthood it is no longer useful, but the cord is still there.

Cords can be a temporary telepathic and energetic link between two persons. Usually, a cord doesn’t last long and dissipate within a few days or even hours. Cords aren’t necessarily bad however if you find yourself constantly thinking of someone in particular, you may form a cord that will drain you and make you feel bad for no reason.
Energy cords show themselves as that surge that you get when you connect with someone. It depends hugely on the person, the circumstances, and on your openness to the feeling. You can easily suppress feeling it with your own mind. I think it still happens, but you can shut down your awareness of it.
Etheric cords can form between people, objects, and situations where there is a fearful attachment, afraid to let go, scared to be alone, afraid to be without. These are invisible energy links. We normally cord to other people and also allow them to cord to us throughout the course of our everyday lives. Many of these cords are short lived and dissolve quickly. There are some however, normally the intensive, volatile, or the longer term relationships, that create cords and with a build-up of numerous energies and emotions, such as need, desire, love, anger, jealousy, envy etc. These cords can create problems in the form of aches and pains, depression, rage, exhaustion, burn-out etc.
Most people aren’t even aware of these energy cords, the few that are aware can only vaguely describe their experiences… and the smallest handful of people who actually have high sensitivity are reluctant to speak about it. There are also a multitude of frauds, phonies, gurus and religious zealots who use cording to attach to their followers to make money.
It is normal for parents to form cords with their babies, this is both a necessity and a positive thing, as these cords help parents communicate with and understand their baby’s needs. Healthy cords dissolve naturally over a period of time, as the child grows.  Negative cords feed the energy and emotions of one person to another, both positive and negative, so you may be feeling particularly angry and not know why, you may also be feeling depressed for no apparent reason. Cords are normally formed on a subconscious level, through a person’s need for strength, manipulation, control.
If you have decided to move on from a relationship and you find it particularly difficult to “let-go” it may be that there are cords of attachment from the other person holding you back. A person going through a divorce may be feeding their anger, rage, stress, and jealousy to the other person and vice versa. Without realising it, parents feed these emotions to their children and partners, creating all sorts of problems for everyone.

If you have a cord attached to someone you love and that person is going through a major crisis, they may be draining energy from you. So you will feel drained without knowing why. In this case some healthy boundaries need to be created.

Is it safe to cut them? 
I’ve discovered that just randomly cutting cords causes more harm than good. Any healing process requires a conscious awareness and respect for the fact that it is a process. It is better to work with the cords, and learn how to adapt and understand them.  I believe we have choice about becoming attached by unhealthy cords if we are operating on an entirely conscious level.   The first step you may need to take is to take a break from being around a person, given the intensity of the energy that flows between you. Sometimes these cords reach across time and space, so we have to so we have to work with them on all levels.
When we give power away to other people because our relationship with self is dysfunctional, we actually allow cords of energy to tie us to those people. You can cut the cords, but unless you resolve the underlying reason why you corded in the first place, the cords will keep coming back.

The following methods of Cord removal I teach preclude removing any healthy cords and offer opportunity to heal the underlying issues.

Gentle loving ways of Releasing the Cords

• One method for removing the energy cords is to imagine yourself sitting in a beautiful natural setting. Imagine a circle around you.  The circle can be made of fine silken rope – literally a “cord”. Sit in it, feel yourself protected by it. Imagine a column of light coming from the heavens encircling you in high frequency pure light.
• Then imagine the people you want out of your life also sitting in a circle made of cord. The two circles are close to each other but not touching. Look at the other people from your circle and wave good bye! You are gently and peacefully allowing other people their space while affirming your own. Instead of cutting, you are transmuting the cords. Let their cords remain whole. Let yours remain whole. Just disentangle and detach.  Stoke the fires of love and compassion. Say good bye with love and move on!

As life is lived, the process of sorting and disentangling is obviously much more complex and subtle.  As you make the music of your life less dysfunctional, the people attracted to the dysfunctional part will fall off. Chords are better than cords.

Higher-Self work to Remove and Heal Cord Attachments 

Connection to High self…

First do a Mediation to align the client (or yourself if doing the work on yourself) with their High self.

Bring in Highself of the person with whom you have an unhealthy attachment.

Have the client (or yourself, if doing the work on yourself) imagine and call in the presence of the high self of the person with whom they feel they have unhealthy cords connected to. Remind them that this is the person high self without all their fears, doubts and control issues. Have them imagine the person as their whole, light filled loving self.  If they have difficulty just tell them to imagine it.

Speaking from the heart…

Once they feel the presence of the person, have them begin to tell the person how they feel about the past. Tell them to speak from their heart, telling the person about how they have hurt them and how they have suffered because of their relationship. They can do this silently if they are not comfortable speaking it out loud.  Encourage them to get everything off their chest.  And then once that is completed have them tell the person what it is that they need from them now.

Listening…

Now it is time for the high self of the other person to speak. Remind them that they are safe. This is the persons loving, true self, without fear or anger. Tell them that they are speaking from their heart now and telling them all the things they have needed to say. Ask them to listen now with an open heart and be willing to receive what they are being told. (It may be telepathic or come in as a feeling ) Encourage them to receive the information however it comes in.  Have them ask the person what they need now.

Remind them that is they asked for forgiveness that forgiveness is not condoning it is making the decision not to carry it any longer.

Are you willing?

Now ask your client (or yourself if doing the work on yourself) if they are willing and ready to help this person with what it is that they need.  It is okay if they are not willing to do anything for the other person. Ask them what they are willing to do for themselves.

Pruning the Garden.

Once this process feels complete I ask the client to call in a high spiritual being to assist them.

Tell them, “Look at the space between you and this person. There you will see attachments some will be healthy and light filled some will be unhealthy looking like the old dead branches on bushes and trees. Now ask your spirit guide to give you a tool to prune away all the dead and unhealthy looking connections. As you trim away these attachments your guide heals the places where they were cut away with healing light. You may help them select the prefect colour of light to do this work with. Continue cutting way the unhealthy attachments until only the healthy light filled connections remain. Your guide will take the old cords and offer them to Mother Earth to be transmuted into new life. If the person you are doing this work with wants to help you… allow them to be part of the process. Once the pruning is complete and all the old connecting points are sealed with light. You now are free to end this relationship or continue it on a basis that is healthy for both of you. Thank the high self of the person you are working with and say good bye allowing them to return to whatever they were doing. Thank your high self and your guide and come back into waking consciousness”

Removing a cord is a three step process:

1.unplugging the cord

2. disposing of the cord

3. cleansing and healing the anchor point / attachment point.

Cord Pulling/Cutting

Some practitioners advocate cutting or removing all cords. Some attachments simply should not be removed because they are as yet too deeply engaged with our energy systems. Additionally, cord cutting can result in shocking both your energy system and that of the person on the other end, creating a host of unwanted sensations, feelings, and emotions. Cord pulling, is safer, more effective, measurably gentler, and longer lasting. Cord pulling does not shock the system of either party, and allows the practitioner to more effectively heal and seal the connection points.

Although similar to cord cutting, cord pulling requires coming from a very compassionate perspective from both practitioner and client. It requires  practice, using tempered skill adequately, repeatedly and with continued success.

In cord work, there is more than the practitioner and the client involved – there are others at the opposite end of each cord and they too must be taken cared for.

Pulling cords doesn’t necessarily lead to break-ups or abandoned relationships, unless that is what you are seeking. Cord pulling will help you move forward with confidence and clarity since it releases the dysfunctional parts of your relationships. Fear is the opposite of love, and all attachments are created from fear.

If there are negative energy cords attached.  Ask how many, if the number is large, begin with the most prominent. Begin pulling the cords one at a time. Handle them lovingly and then connect them to the positive energy of crystalline Earth grid.  Repeat the process and continue pulling cords one by one and connect them immediately to the positive energy of crystalline Earth grid or dispose of them by placing them into a violet flame.

Next use high frequency spiritual light to heal the areas where the cords were attached and create a beautiful shield around each chakra to prevent further attachments.

Keeping yourself Clear with the Violet Flame

The Violet Flame works by raising vibrations. Vibration can be understood to be the speed at which electrons orbit around the nucleus of an atom. The empty space between the nucleus and the electrons is where negative energy can become stuck. When the atoms in our bodies or our auras become clogged with this negativity, the electrons move slower and slower…we have a lower vibration and are less connected to our true spiritual nature.

The Violet Flame transmutes negative energy by turning it into light which causes us to vibrate to a higher energy pattern, releasing more spiritual energy into our bodies. The Violet Flame is a tool of self-transformation. It has the unique ability to transform fear into courage, anxiety into peace and hatred into love. It re-establishes harmony and balance.

The Violet Flame is a Divine gift and tool for everyone, given to us by Ascended Master Saint Germaine. It is a sacred fire that exists on the Higher Dimensions.
The Violet Flame is Spiritual Alchemy in action, transmuting  denser feelings, actions, deeds, thoughts and karma. The Violet flame helps prepare us for our Ascension, which means becoming a Divine Human, also known as a Christed Being – This level of Consciousness obtainable by any person who strives to embody their spiritual self fully within their physical self. You may use the Violet Flame in perfect harmony with any belief system, religion or practice. There are absolutely no conditions attached to it.

You can memorize an invocation or use the words and feelings from your own heart.

There are unlimited ways to use the Violet Flame. This is the basic method Saint Germaine offers to use as a foundation for Violet Flame work. It is very simple with only four steps. Once you understand the principles behind this practice, you can adapt it and use it in unlimited ways.

Step 1. Bring the Violet Flame into your body. Ask your Higher Self, a Master, Guide or Angel to assist you or just ask the flame to “be made manifest”. Do your best to visualize it. It doesn’t matter if you can actually see it.

Step 2. Imagine the flame spinning around your body. Bring it inside your body and  through your heart chakra.  The flame fills your emotional, mental and spiritual bodies.

Step 3. Ask the Violet Flame to transmute everything you wish to be changed or eliminated from your life. You can say “transmute anything and everything standing in the way of my fully embodied God/Goddess self.”

Step 4. Use the flame to change negativity into Divine Light and fill your body.

INVOCATIONS

The Violet Flame Invocations below turn everything into the golden light of the Christ Consciousness.

The following are two simple invocations which will transmute negative thoughts, actions and emotions. You can individualize the Invocation using words from your heart. Say them with feeling and intention.

Saying the words out loud is best because the power and vibration of the spoken word has energy, which helps create the maximum results of the Violet Flame. If you are with people who might be uncomfortable with the spoken word, you can just say it quietly in your mind.

Center yourself. Take a few deep breaths to prepare. Then say these words:

I AM a being of Violet Fire
I AM the purity God desires
(repeat 3 times)

or

Beloved I AM presence bright
Round Me seal your tube of light
From Ascended masters flame
Called forth now in God’s own name
Let it keep my temple free
From all discord sent to me
I  AM calling forth violet fire
To transmute all desire
Keeping on in freedoms name
Till I AM one with violet flame
(repeat 3 times)

Introduction to BioSignatures

Astronomy-Bible-stars-planets-God
The diversity of patterns and shapes in nature makes one wonder, are they there to break the monotony or do they have functional purposes? Nature holds many secrets that are yet to be revealed, scientists are every day discovering fascinating facts about nature and adaptation, and these facts existed and were functioning long before they were recognized by orthodox science.

Extensive research in this field has shown that all patterns on the surface of plants, animals, insects and other living systems, form an integral part of the total energy system of that life form. This pattern is related to the peripheral energy flow on the surface of the body, which usually interacts with the environment to adapt the central energy system to external changes. The existence of a central and peripheral energy system in the body is a fact that most alternative medical practices recognize and work with.

The BioSignatures are used within the BioGeometrical Company’s teaching and research departments, for the development and research. This is done under the supervision of the medical professionals, who are part of the research program. Many of the members are presently using this system in their private lives with success, as part of the research program. Large scale testing for statistical evaluation is currently undergoing in collaboration with scientific research institutions. For the energy balancing to support medical treatment of several problems; Hepatitis C, White blood cells low count, burns…etc, the cases are medically documented, with physicians’ reports and laboratory tests.

BioGeometry Jewelry, like anything else worn on the body can acquire electrostatic changes from surrounding materials or devices and should be knocked strongly on a hard surface or put on the BioGeometrical cleansing tray once a day to clear the charge in order for it to work properly.
After studying the body from the physiological orthodox point of view, the Chinese system of acupuncture and its subtle anatomy of meridians, and the Indian system with its energy centers (charkas) and the energy paths joining them, we discover new BioGeometry resonance relationships. These relationships are on multiple levels in the organs of our body and are expressed as linear energy patterns of organ functions that we call BioSignatures.

If we put a simple shape into this information exchange layer around the physical body we will get resonance with corresponding energy pattern of any similar shape inside the body with the exact geometric configuration

If we look for example at an organ, it can have ten functions, which means that there are ten patterns of motion of energy inside it that are superimposed.Each pattern is on a different layer, with a different frequency.
The reason we made ‘chips’ with so many BioSignatures, is that, with all our present knowledge in the East and West, we do not really know everything about the workings of energy systems of the body, its paths and interrelations. Accordingly, having as many as possible proper energy BioSignatures within one’s energy system will always be beneficial because the body’s own wisdom will choose to access whatever it needs through resonance.

We then did a very interesting experiment: We reduced the BioSignatures in size on a computer down to just a point. There was absolutely no geometrical element left in there, only the energy of the shape.

The Process of Creating BioSignatures

BioGeometry is to be distinguished from any form of symbolism. As we know symbols are as ancient as humanity; they are powerful tools of communicating ideas. Deciphering the codes of shapes in nature is what BioGeometry shapes and BioSignatures are all about. There are many schools of symbolism on levels ranging from religious and alternative beliefs to advertising and commercial manipulation. In BioGeometry shapes and BioSignatures however, we are speaking about something completely different, we are speaking about a design language. We are trying to read the energy language of nature that manifests itself in the shapes that we see. We are not creating them we are discovering them, very much like electricity, which we did not create but rather learnt how to manipulate it. We need to learn to decipher these shapes in order to use them. There is no symbolic value or any meaning in BioGeometry or BioSignature Shapes. They are functional like the integrated circuits on computer chips, and are not dependent on any belief or skepticism on the part of the user.

Results from experiments in the National Research Center in Egypt using bacteria, and other research on poultry and plants done at universities in Egypt and Holland, where auto suggestion, known as ‘placebo effect’, has no place, show evidence of this fact.

Interchangeability Between Scales

Before going into how to use BioSignatures, it is important to explain the process Dr.Karim went through to discover them. We know from the concept of interchangeability between scales, (Please refer to the paper “The Physics of Quality”), that we can translate a colour, like red for example, to a musical note, or translate it to an angle. They are all scales expressing the same thing in different languages. This means that the laws of one would apply to the other.

With musical notes for example, we have the laws of resonance as dealt with in the Science of Harmonics (Pythagoras, Von Thymus, Kepler, Chaldni, Jenny, Keyser). Like wise we ask, if there can be also resonance of shape? If the energy qualities of sound, colour, and angles (components of shape), are interchangeable, then there is resonance between similar colours, shapes and motion. We shall see how we can make use of this resonance of shape and discover new dimensions in the energy patterns of the functions of organs in energy systems.

Body Energy Anatomy

We have a central energy system, and several peripheral energy systems superimposed. There is always interaction between the central energy and the peripheral energy.The Chinese acupuncture points and meridians are part of the peripheral energy system. This peripheral energy system includes an energy boundary around the shape of our body, similar to that found on the periphery of any geometrical shape (The earth and its atmosphere for example). The shape of the body has a sort of energy storage layer, which is the fat on the skin. The fat layer has more than an insulation function that protects the central energy from external factors, it has the ability to accumulate and store information.The Internal energy system uses the senses and the energy centers (Chakras) to interact directly with all levels of energy in the environment. The peripheral energy systems, in turn, are not completely closed to the outside either; they are in constant exchange of information with the outside energy environment.

We must have windows. These points bring the information to the internal system to adapt it to the surrounding environment and are used in acupuncture to affect the energy flow directly on the organs. However, we must understand that their role is much more important, they are the body’s sensors to the outside environment. It is as if I use windows in a house only to look inside the house, we however know, that those windows primary function is to look outside. In our body every organ sends parts of its energy into the peripheral system (windows) to get information about what is happening outside and adapts accordingly.

The peripheral energy systems are not all within the physical boundary, they extend beyond it in a sort of energy field or aura around the body. The peripheral energy includes several superimposed levels. We have a vitality energy periphery, an emotional energy periphery, and mental energy periphery, and each one of them in turn includes its own sub levels.Now, with this information exchange layer, we have the ability to exchange information between the outside and inside of the body, and that is what we will do.

Similar Shapes Enter Into Resonance with Each Other

Every pattern takes a certain shape because it performs a different function. While the shape will still be related to the primary shape, it will be more related to the internal energy patterns of shape within the organ, and will be of linear design in order to conduct energy. All these patterns interact together at the end and form an energy grid. So, instead of entering into resonance with only the primary shape, we go directly to each individual energy pattern. This process can go to the smallest detail, even reaching the DNA level.
We now have our BioSignatures, which when placed within the body’s peripheral energy, conduct energy into their linear shape to form an energy pattern of the same shape that enters into resonance with corresponding body function. If the BioSignature produces the correct pattern, it will enter into resonance with and therefore amplify the energy of that corresponding organ function. This could instantaneously correct the flow of energy and balance the organ function on the energy level.

It is important to note that we are producing energy balance of the organ function. We are not speaking of the healing of the organ on a physical level. BioSignatures have an energy balancing effect which supports other forms of orthodox medical treatments or alternative remedies.

Sometimes when the energy is properly balanced, the body can produce its own healing, which can be instantaneous. This should not however delude us into thinking that this is a form of alternative medical treatment. It is still a form of energy balancing, which is nearer to an environmental ‘tuning’ activity that supports health. It is rather like tuning of a musical instrument. When we look at it in this context, it is easy to understand the simple scientific concept of BioSignatures.

Using BioSignatures

In order to get good results using BioSignatures, it is important that the practitioner has a thorough knowledge of all types of energy flows in the body, as found in Chinese acupuncture meridians, Indian Chakra energy system, and other forms of alternative energy healing.We can illustrate the importance of this with this example. If a professional tennis-player suffers from a “tennis elbow;” it often means the end of his career. He will go through extensive medical treatments using drugs and prolonged physiotherapy which usually yields temporary results and the problem will recur under physical stress. In Chinese medicine, we know that the colon and the elbow are interrelated, because the colon meridian runs through the outer part of the arm over the tennis-elbow point.

In order to properly balance the energy of that area to promote the healing process, we will need to use BioSignatures for that particular muscle, the colon and any other interrelated functions. For example, there is also a connection referred to as mother and child relationship between the lung and colon meridians, so we’ll have to add the relevant lung BioSignatures as well.

Knowing the relationship between the different inner body organs and systems is not enough, in our case, we must know the language of shape in the body and understand the organ interactions based on resonance of shape. If we already have experience in healing, we can use whatever system, computerized technology, Bio-imaging, EKG, EEG, Radiesthesia, Kinesiology or any other body monitoring system to evaluate the energy balance and pickup what is needed.

Sometimes we find that the person needs BioSignatures that seem totally unrelated to his complaints. This could be for several reasons. One would be that the person might have an undetected problem in the organ function, which could sometimes also be on the energy level and not yet physically manifested.

Another reason could be due to resonance of shape between organs or organ details. Research has shown that there is resonance between the organs based on the similarity of their shapes, for example, ear and kidneys.

While working with BioSignatures we found that sometimes a BioSignature for a specific energy function also works for something else. We had such an experience when working with the research on Hepatitis C Virus. We used several BioSignatures for immunity and liver among others. The liver functions improved slightly, but when we went into the details of the subtle energy analysis of the liver cells, we found that something was still missing. We needed something to correct the inside of the cell and surprisingly found that one of the BioSignatures for the heart corrected the problem. This worked by resonance with something inside the liver cells, or other undiscovered relationships. In any case, one has to check the choice of BioSignatures a second time after a few days, to see if additions are needed.

Extensive research is needed as this is a developing science and each time is a new challenge.

Where Does The Energy That Flows Through The BioSignatures Come From?

Could we use for example, a small battery or magnet to introduce a small current into the BioSignature?

Actually, no. It is better to avoid that because electricity and magnetism have certain wave components that are harmful to our biological system. It is much safer to let the minute level of subtle energy from the body’s own electromagnetic field found in the peripheral energy flow through the linear shape of the BioSignatures to activate them. This will happen automatically when any linear object is put in an energy field from which it will conduct the energy. Using the body’s own energy is the safest way, as electromagnetic currents have both the horizontal and vertical wave components that are harmful to our body functions, a fact which produces harmful side effects from all medical devices. Intensive care units could benefit a lot if the harmful side effects of electromagnetic fields were reduced through the use of BioGeometry. We have done a lot of research on all type of biofeedback devices and all sorts of medical diagnostic and treatment devices and found that they all contain some form of vertical wave that should be cancelled. While conducting research in this field, we have filed for a joint-patent (with Vince Kubilius in L.A.) for the elimination of the harmful side effects of electrical devices, using BioGeometry. A similar joint-patent (with Dr.Toby Watkinson in L.A.) was filed for the elimination of the vertical wave forms found in copper coils used in energy balancing for health.

BioSignatures Chip
We tested the effect of this dot on different people, and found that all the functions that were in it were still present and worked fine; they were still active. This is very similar to Homeopathy were the solution goes through several dilutions till no trace of the original matter is left, but the energy is still there.

An important point that we must keep in mind is that in making a general chip there are inevitable choices about which BioSignatures to include. In some cases a special BioSignature needed for a certain case might not be on the chip, or a Bio-numeral variation of the BioSignature would be more effective, it is therefore sometimes necessary to engrave additional BioSignatures on the chip.

Case study:

There are some BioSignatures that we found very helpful as a basic selection:

-The thymus gland plays an important role in our immunity.

-The stomach BioSignatures are very useful, because as we know from our studies in Chinese medicine, the stomach meridian runs through the whole body on both sides. There is a saying in Arab traditional medicine that “The stomach is the house of most ailments”.

-The BioSignature for the ‘spine and nervous system’ will help with back problems and is also good for the central nervous system and immunity related to the spine. We can see from its shape a flow from the base of the spine, moving the energy up along the vertebra to the back of the brain, pineal and pituitary glands.

-The BioSignature for the liver is also important.

-The BioSignature for relaxation is something we all need along with the sign for general immunity.

-There is also another important one, which deals with depression, it works on the emotional level,and balances the disturbed emotional and mental states associated with many diseases.

The Personal Diagram Is Not A BioSignature:

As previously mentioned BioSignatures are to be distinguished from other forms of symbols and designs used by different belief systems or personal diagrams visualized by healers. BioSignatures work on the basis of resonance, and are not dependent on practitioner’s visualization but, on his expertise in choosing the right combination, based on his measurements and knowledge of the body’s energy anatomy. The BioSignature database is a result of 30 years of research and testing of each and every signature.

A BioSignature Shape is very sensitive and delicate to minute adjustments and patterns’ flow. If drawn in a different way or from a different starting point, the shapes will manifest a different subtle energy quality. They could retain their visual quality but lose their potency.

The starting and ending of the BioSignature is very delicate, especially the direction of the curvature of the tips from which the energy comes in and goes out. A BioSignature will accept a small change in proportion without changing the flow as long as the pattern is not distorted. If the gold subtle energy quality of BioGeometry is not found in the BioSignature, then the drawing is not accurate. It is important however to remember that the BioSignatures work by resonance and therefore there can be no harmful signature. If the drawing is not accurate it will simply not resonate and be ineffective.
