Metaphysics

~ This is the study of what is outside objective experience relating to the transcendent or to a reality beyond what is perceptible to the senses.

~ “Beyond the physical”

Metaphysics is an original term referring to the writings of Aristotle in his quest to explain physics. In tradition, metaphysics refers to the branch of philosophy that attempts to understand the fundamental nature of all reality, whether visible or invisible. Another words…”beyond the physical”.

Therefore, a metaphysician is one who seeks to discover what underlies everything. This is the study of what is often outside an objective experience or a reality beyond what is perceptible to the senses.

Principles of Metaphysics

Metaphysics is defined as the branch of philosophy that examines the true nature of reality, whether visible or invisible. Metaphysics is the philosophical study of being and the “extension of knowing”. What is the meaning of life and why am I here?. Metaphysics helps us to define our mission. What is my purpose and what is my reality? It underscores spirituality. Who and what is God and what will happen when I die? It also helps us to self-examine fundamental elements of living. Can I discover prosperity and abundance of health, wealth and happiness?

Metaphysics is often divided into two separate categories, Ontology and Natural Philosophy.

Ontology is the philosophical study of the nature of being, existence or reality, as well as the basic categories of being and their relationships. It is a look at what is beyond the physical or visible recognized fields of human consciousness. This includes the tenets of a good life, spirituality, theosophy, dream psychology, yoga theory, meditation, positive thinking, life after death and reincarnation and extra sensory perception, to name a few.

Natural philosophy or the philosophy of nature, is a term applied to the study of nature and the physical universe that was dominant before the development of modern science. It is considered to be the precursor of the natural sciences such as physics. This includes astrology, cosmology, natural laws of the Universe, Universal life force and energy as medicine.

Metaphysics has been called everything from New Age Psychology to the Taoism of Life! There are many principles about the theories and postulations of the metaphysical world. Space, time, motion and continuum look at philosophies of the physical world versus the non-physical world. For all intents and purposes, my studies in theology and ontology have revolved around our “extension of knowing” and its purpose in the healing arts for mind, body and spirit. So at Peacefulmind.com, I focus on the principles of self discovery, living with nature, intuition, energy cycles and the flow of consciousness, thought and awareness.

Energy Healing Tools

Energy as Therapy

The power of the intangible has taken hold! For centuries, energy medicine has been around and accepted in many cultures. From the doshas and Chakras of Tibetan and Indian cultures to the Meridians and Qi of Chinese and Japanese medical practices. From Orgone and Kundalini to Prana or “The Force“, energy and the therapies associated with them, are becoming much more of an interest to a Western world that has spent so much time dissecting the parts of the whole.

Allopathic medicine has made great and life saving advances within the past century. Many of which, we should embrace. Where Western medicine falls short, is in its disbelief of the intangible whole. The sub-atomic and minute particles that make-up a world we have not begun to understand, could just be the basis of our healing capacity. Now, Western medicine is doing more research and starting to see actual biochemical reactions, which our brain experiences when we undergo such energy therapies such as touch therapies, meditation , acupuncture, guided imagery and energy Work!

These modalities of healing are profound and are great integrative therapies that can be used in conjunction with many other forms of health care. We have collected the most beneficial products and modalities to work with the incredible mastery of these healing arts.

Energy Medicine Therapies

You might be surprised to realize just how much “energy” plays apart in so many healing paradigms. From Acupuncture to Zen Therapy, the transition and transformation of “that which cannot be seen”, can leave such a resounding impact.

Therefore, energy medicine attempts to understand the fundamental nature of all reality, whether visible or invisible. “Beyond the physical”. is what we discover when we look, feel or sense  that which underlies everything. Energy medicine is the study of what is outside objective experience. It  relates to the transcendent or to a reality beyond what is perceptible to the senses.

Energy Cycles

The Cycles in Nature are a prime example of a cycle of energy. They are important when doing any kind of metaphysical or empowerment work. When working with the energy of natural cycles, you are likely to get better results. Understand how being more conscious and aware brings greater power. Discover how cycles define our lives…

Intuition

The source of our intuition is often described as our “gut feeling” found at the Solar Plexus Chakra. This energy center deals with the human ego, emotions and self-power. Although, the Third Eye Chakra is most associated with intuition, the “spark” is what is felt in the area of our solar plexus. Energy medicine is based on the belief that the human body is composed of energy fields.

Map of Intention

What is often considered living in the NOW, intention can be defined as “a determination to act in a certain way”. Intention is a tool that can be used to bring about change. With clear intent, we formulate a greater deliberateness in order to achieve the end result. Start by understanding the map of intention and how it is used to break down the reasoning behind the focus.

How to Manifest Anything

Anything can be manifested. It is your intention realized. It is the process of asking, believing and receiving which brings to you what you wish to create in your life. “To manifest” is a formal way of saying that something is apparent to your senses and is synonymous with evident, apparent, or clear results. If you have a strong feeling about something, it will manifest on your face. It is the result of an action. 

A manifestation is an example of emotion or feeling, or something theoretically made real or possible. The origins of manifestation come from religion and spirituality as it is something spiritual that becomes real. This is said to be a manifestation. The word’s usage has spread to include all aspects of life. So manifesting is the process of bringing something from a desire to reality. Here are 7 actions to manifest anything you want in your life. 

Taking Away The Taboo: The Empowerment of Everyday Rituals

A ritual is a set of actions, performed for their symbolic value or to reach an outcome. Brushing your teeth or eating breakfast is a ritual. We do them everyday. Some rituals are done monthly, like paying our bills or paying the rent. We do seasonal rituals like planting the garden, harvesting the fields or once a year rituals like celebrating a birthday or a holiday.

Consciousness and Awareness

Limited views and opinions are stifling. They detach us from reality, decrease our awareness and shut down our mind. We all have a limited view of some areas of our lives. Gaining a broader perspective is self awareness. Being able to open up your mind, allowing a free flow of thoughts and ideas can be liberating. Welcoming a new opinion or way of doing something can bring new meaning to your life. If you give up your closed thouughts and make way for a different opinion, you may be surprised at the outcome.

Striving to meet difficult goals has pushed us to stretch the horizons of what we think is possible. We share the ways in which obstacles and challenges have made us stronger, and given us confidence to continue setting goals and dreams in our adventures, our business, and in our day to day lives. This is conscious living. To start living in consciousness, we must start to experience the fourfold ordering principle as the four functions of life from birth to death: intuition, feeling, sensation and thought.

Life Cycle I – Intuition is an open sense of willingness. It represents Spring, raw intuition, the zodiac signs of aries, taurus, gemini and is our first quadrant of development from birth to 21. This suggests the following types of consciousness and experiences: action of all kinds; decisions; doing; determining; controlling; yes-no; on-off; accomplishing; effectuating; carrying out; implementing; working; ordering; intuiting; fore-brain; deep sleep and attention.

Life Cycle II – Feeling is an introduction to the self. It represents Summer, raw love, the zodiac signs of cancer, leo, virgo and is our second quadrant of development from age 21 to 42. This suggests the following: love; emotions; affects; drives; fun; intensity; enthusiasm; exhilaration; moods; imagination; force; power; passion; sentiment; strength; laughter; joy; humor; playfulness; right brain; metabolism; impulses; and dreams.

Life Cycle III – Sensation is an awareness of how life is perceived. It represents Fall, new found knowledge of prosperity, the zodiac signs of libra, scorpio, sagittarius and is our third quadrant of development from age 42 to 63. This suggests that sensing means perception; observe; 6 senses; unprocessed information; intake; direct and immediate consciousness; discern; sensuality; left brain; sex and excretion; sense data; and waking consciousness.

Life Cycle IV – Thought is the coming of age of life’s lessons learned. It represents Winter, knowledge gained, the zodiac signs of capricorn, aquarius, pisces and is our fourth quadrant of development from age 63 and onward. This suggests that thought represents: reason; relate; rational; logical thinking; analytical; discursive; ratiocination; order; consider; reflect; ponder; cogitate; dialectic; symbolize; conceive; connect; deliberate; either-or; both-and; enumerate; hind brain; breathing; language; and reflection.

The Metaphysics of Alice

“Alas it’s not too hard to see, the world obsessed with Alice and she…
the Queen, the Rabbit, the Hatter and such, beloved by all ~ with so “muchness”
that we’ve acquired from philosophies, spent in time over cakes and teas.
The odd life lessons that we’ve learned, from every single page we’ve turned!

The Tao of Music

The “tao” or “path” of music is the way. The way we hear music, our approach to making music, our understanding of the rhythm and rhymes of music are the conditions in which we understand its message! This is known as vibrational tuning or vibrational medicine, which validates that everything in the Universe is in a state of vibration…

Priorities of Life

What do we find most important in our life? Most would say their need for love, money, protection, or success. The tenets of a good life are the basic needs and desires of everyone, except, how do we get these things?  How do we learn to work with our surroundings to create what we want in our lives? Here you will find many of life’s answers…

Make a Self-Awareness Journal

1. For two weeks, make notations whenever you have a mood swing, emotional upheaval or change in energy (such as hyperactivity or lethargy).

2. Note the date and time of the event.

3. Note what actions you take to bring yourself back to balance. Do you sit down and do yoga, stretch, meditate. Do you recite an affirmation? Do you binge eat, purge, have a drink or do other actions revolving around food?
