I’m having a revelation. It’s about granite and the quarts crystal and radon that play a role in conducting a piezo-electric charge through it. Water as a sentient being and resonator of electromagnetic and geomagnetic lay lines. It’s about the meridians of this precious earth that are designed to be in repartee with the meridians of our own human bodies. It’s about oxygen and the lungs of this earth – the trees and green ones that we exchange a symbiotic relationship of holy needs with every day. It’s about the memory of how we are and were originally meant to live. It’s about the remembrance of wholeness that my ancient ancestors are still whispering on the winds that caress my back in this moment. It’s about the exquisite beauty of being alive within this greater body of nature and the inherent field of joy that we are all intrinsically woven into.
I arrived on this island somewhere in the Mediterranean (I won’t say names for now) just a little over a week ago. Having only learned of its existence about 10 months ago. A dear friend who is an EMF specialist sent me a video of some aerial views of the island landscape and I was immediately moved to my depths by the beauty of this place. Immediately felt a calling to directly experience what I sensed was here. For him, he is always researching where in the world to exist that one could still live and not be so bombarded my negative EMF’s and the deleterious effects of them.
For me, I was mysteriously compelled to research this island over the last number of months and learned that it is becoming more and more known for being the island of immortals, as it is common for people to live into their 100’s. There are a handful of these places on the planet known as “blue zones”. There seem to be a number of factors that contribute to a blue zone. Clean diets, good sources of water, clean air and also a strong community with the building blocks of low stress, connection, safety and trust as the fundamental environment.
This is all true here, along with a festive spirit where drinking the local wine, dancing, singing and making love are considered natural activities into the 90’s and beyond. Most of the locals all grow their own food, make their wine, press their olives for oil, and so live very active, hard working lifestyles as well.
What also struck me in my research prior to coming is that the island features a unique “radio-energetic” hot water mineral spring. In fact, this happens to be the strongest one in the entire world. What makes these waters “radio-energetic” is radon. You probably equate radon as being a radioactive gas can cause lung cancer. But here and other places like the Ukrain, people take baths in this spring water that’s naturally rich in the element to treat back injuries, arthritis, skin rashes, infertility and a host of other medical conditions. Being a hot spring connoisseur, I was very intrigued to experience these waters. And wow- never have I experienced such potent mineral waters. Coming up right in the ocean as well; so you get this lovely blend of salty Mediterranean Sea mixed with radon filled hot water.
What I did not know until a few days ago is that this mineral radon is also prevalent in the granite that uniquely occupies much of the earth here. We went to this ancient monastery set back in the mountains, literally dating back to the 1400’s. The monastery itself was made of and surrounded by these granite slabs. My body was instinctually drawn to lie down on the granite. It was as if every cell of my body wanted to absorb something from it. I also noticed myself spontaneously taking deeper breaths here and my heart opening to receive something of the holy. I began to ask my guides more questions about this place and realized that the granite is a huge piece of the puzzle to this island where people forget to die.
I remembered that granite also has quarts crystal in it, which naturally creates its own piezo-electric charge. There is that word again! In case you are not familiar: Piezoelectricity is the electric charge that accumulates in certain solid materials (such as crystals, certain ceramics, and biological matter such as bone, DNA and various proteins) in response to applied mechanical stress. The word piezoelectricity means electricity resulting from pressure and latent heat. It is derived from the Greek word πιέζειν; piezein, which means to squeeze or press, and ἤλεκτρον ēlektron, which means amber, an ancient source of electric charge.”)
We need this charge or voltage to literally run every metabolic process in our bodies. Usually we find it through some kind of movement practice. Even walking. Osteoporosis occurs from the lack of this charge for example as the bones become more brittle and lose hydration without it.
Then there is the fact that this island comprised of mostly granite is also surrounded by salt water, which is also an electro-conductor. Then add to the mix the nitrogen from the trees and the pure oxygenated air coming off of the Mediterranean Seas. The body can actually absorb the nutrition required for health as well as the cells being able to detox at a rate that is faster- this is the recipe for vital, regenerative living.
So back to my revelation; even though there is still one or two cell towers on this island and WIFI many places, somehow I just don’t feel the saturation or the draining impact that I do at ‘home’ in CA or most anywhere else I’ve been that we call, the ‘civilized’ world.
Of course I know about the many distortions and incoherence that living in an over saturation of negative electromagnetic fields has on the body- especially the heart and the brain. The insidious inflammation behind the many ‘mysterious’ health symptoms on the rise that on some level we have all become used to. I have watched the increase of these ‘mysterious’ health symptoms for many others and myself over the last number of years.
Here on this island I have been able to eat dairy, wheat and wine pretty much every day, which I can never eat at home, without serious inflammatory response from my body. I was also experiencing heart arrhythmia’s over the last number of months along with some other ‘mysterious’ symptoms which seem to have disappeared since being here. I wake up with my body feeling rested and my brain bright even after a night of the local fair. Very curious!
Having the distance here (and the contrast), in the middle of the ocean on a very intact piece of earth- where there is pure oxygen and pure water, in a culture where there is zero crime and people live in safety and trust with one another all the time: my heart is breaking open. As I am being shown how it’s not just the EMF’s in the US and most saturated areas on the planet- it’s also the fracking, the chem-trails- the pesticides, the GMO’S, big corp and the inundation of heavy medals that we are all (as one family- one planet) impacted by– but buffer ourselves from actually feeling the depths of the absolute violation that it is. There is no end to the rabbit hole of atrocities if you put your attention there. People with alleged “power” are inflicting these evils to our mother earth for profit, while many of us are sleep walking in the narcissistic hustle of trying to innocently make a living- take care of our families and ourselves. A challenge it is to keeps one heart open and feel as we are designed to feel in light of such madness.
In the same moment, I reflect on my life at home and on the close ones I know, marching in the streets recently for climate change and my heart is endeared to the human spirit- resilient and showing up.
This always happens to me when I step out of the field of the US. I wake up on a different level. I get to empty out and disentangle from my cultural prerogatives. I remember my vows as an earth steward and I stop making excuses for the ways in which I know that I am not fully showing up for my deeper soul assignment with Life. I lean in deeper to my own prayers as to how to actualize what I know is mine to do on this precious planet for the short time that I am here.
I think there is a huge spiritual bypass among many people in the ‘spiritual’ community who host this attitude: The planet doesn’t need saving. Everything is in divine timing, etc. etc… And propose that everything is just perfect and that things are just going to get better. Of course we all want to believe that- but is this really true? Some of the greatest environmental scientists of this age tell us we might have 9 years left before this environment is no longer inhabitable for life. The indigenous peoples all over the world recognize the signs in there own ways. Bottom line- we don’t know how long anything will last. This realm is governed by impermanence. Our hearts are governed by the Eternal that is Love; our bodies are here, in the now, dancing intimately between the two.
I am in the contemplation in these last days here as I walk the land and listen to the sound of the sea, as to what the purpose is of all of the heart breaking atrocities against Nature and the basic goodness of Life? I can’t help but feel deeper into the whole of us, as I open to the coherence, aka “the holy” that is palpable here on this island. We are the blessed sons and daughters of the most exquisite mother, father, God… may we not take for granted for a second, the gift of life. May we wield our earth stewardship with genuine care and cooperation.
I remember this quote from ~Black Elk, Elk Speaks:
“I was standing on the highest mountain of them all, and round about beneath me was the whole hoop of the world. And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being. And I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all children of one mother and one father. And I saw that it was holy.
Every little thing is sent for something, and in that thing there should be happiness and the power to make happy. Like the grasses showing tender faces to each other, thus we should do, for this was the wish of the Grandfathers of the World.”
Perhaps the point, if there is one –is for each of us to come abide in the Eternal Life that is the holy love – beyond death, birth and all that appears to come and go- while at the same time- being fully here, fully human, fully feeling- fully engaged in what we know is ours to do.
Duh! & Yamma’s ~ (the Greek word for cheers) to being awake together in the dream.
Thanks for listening to my musings…and thank you for all that you do, be and ARE.
I love you.
