‘The force’ made popular by the re-kindled Star Wars franchise and it’s huge fan-base has become something of a cliché in recent years with ‘the May the 4th be with you’ celebrations and costume gatherings that have come to be an annual part of the festivities, but the idea of ‘the force’ is based on an ancient truth.\r\n

 Science is confirming that we are all buzzing around at a certain base frequency of brain waves that resonates between the Delta Wave range of 4-8 Hz and the Alpha Range of 9-14 Hz.  Our brains cells are vibrating and resonating with each other on this level of vibration, literally creating a field of electromagnetic potential that a person can tap into by expanding their awareness.



The force is with all of us


This expansive awareness can be brought on by the utilizing the ancient techniques of yoga and meditation to calm your mind and to begin to notice the subtle feelings involved in such a finely tuned field of awareness.  These ancient techniques, as well as in some of the mystical practices of the worlds mystery religions like the wiccans and pagans to name just two, are used to help bring a focus to the feeling senses that help to connect you to ‘the force’.


If you have a mind (assumed because you are reading this) you are already connected to ‘the force’, you just may not always recognize it.  Whenever you know who it is calling you, or have the shivers from a touching moment, or think of someone and run in to them unexpectedly, you are experiencing 'the force' in action. Meanwhile, ‘The force’ is literally being recognized by science at the height of modern physiology right now.  Consider this quote from the book ‘The healing power of Neurofeedback’ by Dr. Stephen Larson;


All living creatures have electro-magnetic components that play a part in governing their structure and physiology.  Electricity and magnetism are intimately involved in the sensing and communicating systems of living organisms.  The idea of a global interacting electromagnetic field within organisms is based on a new biophysical view of life.  This view calls us to look at the human body as an electromagnetic organism that contains informational systems or structures.  The atomic structure as having an electrical nature has, in fact, been proposed to establish the energetic basis for life itself. –Evelyn Soehner, M.A


 from the book ‘The healing power of Neurofeedback’ -Dr. Stephen Larson


Modern science is catching up to the ancient mystics and becoming aware of the pervading field of existence that allows the body to heal and grow and thrive in a killer world, and how we are all within this pool of brain waves, interconnected, whether we like it or not.   


the brainwave frequencies


While neuroscience has recently made it\'s gains and the Brain Control Interface (BCI)is slowly taking shape to bring us a digitally connected, ultra-awareness through constant wireless communication known as Augmented Reality, the empirical evidence for a subtle mind-field is supported by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Aruyvedic Medicine brought to us by ancient scholars and the founders of health and preventative care.  


In TCM, the flowing of \'Chi\' is vital to health and could be directed by intention and cultivating will as well as by using the five elements to balance the harmony of forces.  The old tales of long-life, superhuman strength, telekinesis, and extraordinary leaping abilities can all be attributed to 'the force' of 'Chi' and the control of mind over matter.


TCM meridians and chakras

In Ayurvedic medicine, the chakras are a well known example of how the energetic body interfaces with the mind field and a person\'s overall awareness.  This is a breakdown of your overall \'Prana\' the sanskrit term for life-force energy.  The Chakras, or energy centers, are impacted by what you eat, how you take care of yourself, and who you choose to hang out with. Everyone knows that person who is an \'energy drain\' or \'vampire\' that you feel tired after being around and this is also related to the mind-field and chakras, or \'the force\' that people may not truly recognize.  Some of these people have what is referred to as the \'Jedi mind trick\' and can convince you to do stuff you really don\'t want to like waste your time and efforts.  This is also a chakra power imbalance and if you consciously bring your attention to your energy centers, you can balance out this feeling of imbalance in your energy field, and often times the imbalance will work itself out.  Consider what the chakras can represent and how you are connected to others in these aspects, what your roles are with their 'energy centers' compared to yours.




There are many other cultures and belief systems that believe in something like 'the force', and that includes Christianity and the 'holy spirit'.  The mystical idea of the 'holy spirit' lives in all things and moves all things and could be compared to an ultra-awareness or potential in the universe.  The holy spirit is brought on by prayer to a high power, a conduit to miracles, a call to great spirit to intervene, a force by another name is still, a force.


peace be upon you, everyone


Of course organized religion has been described by the mechanists as the opiate of the masses, but the point of all religions of any flavor is to ignite the inner awareness spawned within your third eye, which connects you to source and spirit.  To begin to become aware of this mind-field potential, there are many practices one can do cultivate the inner knowing that it takes.  For those that are interested, the following is a short exercise to perform with a partner that will help you to become aware of the electromagnetic field that surrounds your body and connects you to the universe.  This field allows you to know, heal and grow and maintain awareness and has  been studied and verified by science.


1. make sure you are well hydrated and nourished, with no distractions in the room excepting soft music.  Remove your shoes, and sit comfortably with a partner cross legged on the carpet or a yoga mat.


2. After slowing and deepening your breathing, gently rub the palms of your hands together to stimulate the nerve endings and to create static electricity in your fingertips, then place your hands softly upon your knees with the palms facing up.


3. After a minute of deep breathing with your palms facing upward and your eyes closed while breathing slowly and deeply, both participants shall slowly and intently bring their hands toward their heart as if they were holding a softball of light.  Gently squeeze and massage this glowing ball of white and golden, glittering light.


4. After generating and visualizing a ball of light in the center of your hands in front of your heart, have one of the participants, place their hands just 2-3 inches above the hands of the other participant whom has placed their hands back upon their knees palms up, without touching them, while the hands up participant keeps their eyes closed.  The first person, feels into their hands and maintains that image of a bright ball of glowing energy in their palm, and when each hand has this glowing marble that is well envisioned and glowing brightly in the minds eye, the visual imagery becomes a burst of a flash of light, every few seconds, to \'reach out\' in the light body into the other persons awareness.  This bursting out in the light body is to be visualized as a pure heart light burst toward the other with a positive intention of reaching out to the other person\'s soul-body.  After several minutes of this visualization exercise, have the person\'s switch their roles in the exercise, repeating from step 3.


Discuss any feelings and thoughts or sensations you experienced with your partner after the exercise to see how the perceptions coincide and differ.


Using your intuition and cultivating your awareness are a part of opening up to the 5th dimensional reality we are evolving into.  This transition and new wave of coherence is related to the inner growth of man and his universal awareness, now that the outer growth of dominion has been mostly completed.  This is the new awareness that can help stop suffering on this planet and is to be regarded as sacred, please use your light body awareness cautiously as you grow into your full flowered self.


Who knows, maybe now that science has validated it, someone can use the force to build some new monolithic structures, like the pyramids, since we haven’t figured that out using our ‘modern’ methods …..yet.
