Whilst most of us still believe in the separation of things, physicists are on their way to proving that this is not the case at all. The spiritual community says the same thing and talks about the “Oneness” of all things. Time to change our view on things that we considered to be true.
Actually, the world of physics and the spiritual world are complementing each other with their wisdom and knowledge. We could call the combination metaphysics. This word traces back to Aristoteles, who viewed it as the wisdom behind physics. So it was science combined with philosophy, explaining what science was not able to explain yet.
While science attempts to satisfy the head and to understand and explain the universal laws logically, spiritual wisdom comes from the feeling and heart level, relying on intuitive knowing. In the end, they meet and join like puzzle pieces to complete the picture.
Both of the disciplines have a problem though: They both speak a language that we have a very hard time to understand. Listening to a scientist is very exhausting and we feel not smart enough to understand what they want to get across. Just think of Penny trying to understand Sheldon Cooper talking about the string theory in the series “Big Bang Theory”. We laugh about it – mainly because we feel caught and totally feel with her. This stuff is something only nerds can understand.
The spiritual world on the other hand greatly suffered a lack of acceptance because of all the romanticizing, cheesy and old-fashioned language. Angels, rainbows, pink and purple websites complete the picture. It is a style that people find mostly awfully annoying and corny.
So both sides did a great job in being ignored, simply because it is nothing we are familiar with and the manner it is transported does not resonate with us. We simply cannot relate to it or develop a passion for it. It is too complex or too divorced from reality as we know it.
Seeing is believing?
For us, it is a lot easier to understand things we can see and touch. We need to have a proof for the things we experience. “I only believe what I can see.” In physics, that would be the theories of Newton. These theories are old and stem from the end of the 17th and beginning of the 18th century. He said that the universe consists of solid objects, just as we are solid objects ourselves. Everything is separated. In the 19th century, his work was supplemented by another hypothesis: The universe is an assembly of basic building blocks. Those were called atoms. Those atoms were seen as the smallest solid objects in the universe. A core of protons and neutrons, orbited by electrons. Similar to the planets orbiting the sun. The whole universe was seen as a mechanical system and time and space were defined as being absolute. Interactions between energy and matter such as radio waves transmitting music were not known. Early in the 19th century then, Michael Faraday and James Clerk introduced the theory of the power fields. Each body is building up a field around itself which influences other fields. This seemed to explain, why we can influence someone over distance without using language or visual perception. Step by step – 100 years later – this awareness slowly is accepted by us. We are at the beginning to understand and recognise ourselves as an energy field. We talk about vibes we are sensing, we are sending energy to someone or we read other peoples energy fields and what emotions or thoughts are going on for them. We know instantly if we like or dislike someone.
“We are at the beginning to understand and recognise ourselves as an energy field”
And then there was Einstein. He overthrew the principles of Newton. His theory of relativity says that space is not three dimensional and time is not linear but both are representing a four-dimensional space-time continuum. Time is relative – neither linear nor absolute. He says that different observers will sort events into time differently, depending on the different speeds they are moving at. It could even be that two observers are watching two events in reverse order. So for observer 1 event A happens before event B while for observer 2 B happens before A. We have not integrated these principles yet in our daily life, simply because it is so complicated and we still believe in Newtons laws. At least that is something we are feeling familiar and secure with. With Einstein’s theory, we have to accept that an event we have seen (like a foreboding) can be real although it has not happened. As time no longer is linear, it could have happened in the past already, it can happen at that point in time when we have seen it or in the future. It can also be a probable event that did not manifest at all or not yet.
Actually, we experience every day that time is stretchable, depending on what we do and in what mood we are in. Translated into energy frequencies that means, the higher our frequency, the faster time seems to pass by. As Einstein said: “Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.” Or let’s say it a little more philosophically with the words of Pliny the Younger: “The happier the moments, the shorter the time”. You can probably relate to that – think of a job you do or did which really annoyed you or you hated it and time seemed to last forever. On the other hand, when you follow a hobby you really enjoy, you get lost in time and space and all of a sudden the day has gone by.
Another important element of Einstein’s theory of relativity is the exchangeability of matter and energy. Mass is nothing else but a pure form of energy.
“Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.” – Albert Einstein
Separation is an Illusion
But that is not all. Modern physics already discovered in the 20’s the world of subatomic elementary particles and waves. Light for example can be seen as elementary particles but also as a wave. Another whole new world is opening up: The world of complementarity. Max Planck discovered that warmth energy is not steadily radiating, but comes in form of energy packages – so called quanta. According to Einstein, all forms of electromagnetic radiation cannot only appear as waves but also as quanta. Moving deeper into matter, we have to let go of Newton’s theory of isolated building blocks. Just because scientists found so many elementary particles that can merge with each other, can change and can dissolve again within energy. This is the dissolving of “either – or” principles. Instead, it is the complimentary world of both. This is also the end of duality and of antagonisms because everything is made of the same energy and can be transformed in their frequency. So modern physics say that the whole universe is a dynamic fabric of energy patterns, a seamless unit where the observer is permanently involved. The logical consequence: There cannot be any separation or parts. We are the whole and are always connected with the world and the universe directly. According to modern physics, the energy fields do not know any physical or timely distance. As we are always part of the whole, we can always access the creative energy of the universe.
And guess what – this universal energy is the basis of all spiritual wisdom.
Nevertheless, we still live our life on earth mostly according to mechanical principles; We love to see our world this way because it makes it solid, unchangeable and reliable. And there are certain rules that are set and clearly defined. We see our body as a mechanical system and we live in the 3D belief with a linear time and linear structures. We are ignoring the scientific findings of other dimensions, according to physicist Burkhard Heim there are 12 of them. We could almost say, most of humanity still believes that earth is the center of our Galaxy, while few have accepted the theory that it is the sun all planets are orbiting. But slowly people are opening up to this new reality and are starting to see the interrelations between science and spirituality.
The spiritual Society is here already
Spirituality teaches things like oneness and universal love and the existence of universal energies since a long, long time. Working and healing with energy traces back for millennials. Jesus was an energy healer, who was understanding the frequencies and how to change them. Shamans use energy to heal, so do Zen Gurus and Reiki Masters. Women with energy healing abilities in the mediaeval times were burnt as witches. The wisdom is old and once you have worked with energies or experienced a Reiki session, you know that these invisible energy fields exist. Because you can feel them and you can experience first hand that something is happening for you and energy is flowing through you.
“Slowly the wisdom of energy work is coming back into our awareness and daily life”
Slowly this wisdom comes back into our awareness and our daily life. Yoga studios are mushrooming everywhere, people book meditation seminars and retreats and want to learn qi gong or tai chi. Acupuncture is accepted as a healing method even by health insurances. All of these disciplines focus on energy.
The universal energy has different names in different traditions. The Indians call it Prana, the breath of life. The Chinese call it Chi and claim that it exists of two polarities that need each other to be whole: Yin and Yang – the masculine and the feminine energies. When those are balanced, the human system is healthy. The Jewish Kabbalah speaks of the astral light. Christian paintings show halos above the heads of holy people. Many more, the Tibetans, the medicine men, Zen Buddhists, Rudolf Steiner, Vedic teachers – they all speak about the human energy field in great detail.
The Law of Attraction
Now back to science – in history already 500BC the Pythagoreans spoke of a light that can affect the human body including healing. Boirac and Liebelault found out in the 12th century, that there is an energy that allows interactions between people over a distance. And Leibniz, a philosopher and mathematician talked about the fact that the universe consists of power centres that carry their own source of movement inside themselves. In the 19th century, Reichenbach experimented for more than 30 years with the energy he called it the odic force. He discovered a specific property of this force: it attracts alike frequencies. This is the essence of the law of attraction. In the meantime more and more doctors not only accept, but also work with the fact that energy blockages can cause serious illnesses in our body.
“We are standing on the edge of the next step in human evolution”
So in the end it becomes clear that we are standing on the edge of the next step in human evolution. We are slowly waking up to a new reality and that there are many things around our own energy bodies we are discovering and learning now. I invite you to experiment with your own energies and to play with the law of attraction a bit. You will be amazed how simple it is to apply these physical regularities once you have gotten the hang of it.
Anyone who is interested in the complete history of the metaphysical, spiritual and medical discoveries on the universal energies, I highly recommend Barbara Brennan’s “Hands of light”. The first part of the book gives a very holistic overview. Lots of information in this article is based on her findings. Another book that gives great insight and combines spiritual wisdom and scientific research is “the matrix code” by Dieter Broers. For the better understanding of oneness and the shared consciousness we all are connected to, I highly recommend to read “One Mind” by Larry Dossey.
The texts I share are always based on my intuition and/or on experiences of clients and my own. I do not claim what I share to be the ultimate truth. I encourage everyone to only take what resonates to find your own truth and wisdom. As this is universal wisdom, I do not claim any copyright. Please feel free to share this content as long as you keep its message complete so that the meaning does not get twisted. Thank you. With lots of light and love, Vera Ingeborg
