Welcome to Jeroensjourney 2!
Dear reader, Beste lezer,
 
Welcome to the weblog that follows on jeroensjourney.punt.nl. Here I will update you on my experiences in Thailand and India, and my personal inner or spiritual journey. After my healing journey described on jeroensjourney.punt.nl (with also information about Buddhism, meditation, Taoism and other healing practices), this weblog, from early 2007, relates about further healing and spiritual growth for an increasingly happy and true life.
 
With love from Asia,
 
Jeroen Deva Geetesh (jeroensjourney@gmail.com)

A new vibration and the need for change
 
Dear readers,
 
More and more people in my environment tell me that we are in a period of transition towards a higher vibration. For me, until quite recently, these stories always sounded to me as pretty airy-fairy [zweverig] and I put them on the same pile as people who believe in angels, higher beings, a personal god or life after death. In short, 'things' that we can say of, "it might exist but we can never know". For me spirituality has nothing to do with blind beliefs or assumptions that we can never proof. It is like believing in marsians or extraterrestians. "If you believe in them, fine for you, but I am not going to waste my time and energy on those kind of fantasies." Spirituality for me is pretty down to earth. Based on personal experience, not on questionable assumptions.
But this new vibration, in my own experience, seems a reality. So let me explain what it is - according to those who claim to know -  and what my experiences are with it.
 
This period with a higher vibration can be called the new age. More specifically, it is the age of Aquarius, which, according to some has started around 2000 after more than 2160 years of the age of Pisces. But there is widespread discussion about the exact date with a spread of as much as 200 years! See here for more about the discussion on the 'when-question'. But whatever the date, I feel that we are somehwere in the transition period. 
Other terms you might have heard in relation to this new age is "the fifth dimension" and the year "2012".
 
So until very recently I put all this in the category of "new age bla bla or pure nonsense", but that has changed. Not long ago I read a weblog (on punt.nl!) about the age of Aquarius, and what I read there made a lot of sense and matched with what I saw happen all around me in the world. So let me explain what my understanding of the whole thing is underneath.

Sensitivity
 
Dear reader,
 
Since about three years am I on the path of healing and spirituality and I have changed a lot. One of the things that has changed is that I am more sensitive and aware. Things that I previously did not notice, like certain thought patterns or negative habits, I do notice now. I never realised that I often lift my shoulders, I do notice it now. And so on and so on.
On one of the tapes of Abraham Hicks that I just heard (a friend gave me the podcasts of these audio-files) there was a piece of text that made me aware of what increased sensitivity means.

Focus on what you want, not on what you don't want
 
Dear readers,
 
In my previouw weblog I wrote about my struggle with work and thoughts about changing my line of work. In these times that I sometimes feel like "this is not what I want to do" it happened from time to time that I went into total negativity. Suddenly everything seemed bad about my work and then it was difficult to see the positive side. I think that this is a natural human tendency. Our mind likes things to be clear and has a tendency to think in black and white. It is either good or bad. These of course are only ideas, products of the mind, they are never the whole truth.

The Toltecs: The four agreements for a happier life
 
Dear reader,
 
Yesterday I visited friends and they had a book about the wisdom of the Toltecs. These ancient Mexican Indians apparently were very wise and spiritual. While, as I understand, there is a lot of mystery about these people, the book "The four agreements" or in Dutch "De vier inzichten", is as I flipped through it very wise and straightforward. Easy to remember, so maybe nice if you are looking for something else than the 10 commandments ;-).
 
In The Four Agreements®, don Miguel Ruiz reveals the source of self-limiting agreements that rob people of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, The Four Agreements® offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform anyone's life to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.
 
These agreements are deceptively simple:
1. Be impeccable with your word (speak with integrity; say only what you mean);
2. Don't take anything personally (nothing others do is because of you);
3. Don't make assumptions (find the courage to ask questions and express what you really want);
4. Always do your best (and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret).
 
With love,
 
Jeroen

Synchronicity
 
Synchronicity is something that happens in your life when you are aligned with the universe. When you are flowing rather than try to control every detail of your life. Synchronicity, sceptics would say, does not exist, it is just coincidence. Before I got serious about my spiritual practice, I was of that same belief. But in the previous years I have discovered how, when you ar flowing and aligned, all kinds of 'coincidences' and 'little miracles' happen, while when I am fighting with life and trying to swim upstream, these events are much rarer, if they occur at all.
 
So let me just tell about a few examples of synchronicity during my stay in Thailand. Agreed, all of this could well be just coincidence. But I don't think it was.

The power of the mind

Dear reader,
 
Just a short blog after receiving an e-mail from The Journey from Brandon Bays (have a look at www.thejourney.com if you are interested) about the ubelievable power of the mind.
 
Over the last two years, if anything, I have experienced how your mind can make or break your life. Negative thoughts and deep convictions and conditionings (by society, religions, parents, etc.) can make your life into hell and completely distort reality. That is why for me the Buddhist path of training and purifying the mind has had (and still has) such a postive effect on my quality of life, but the same can be said for the Taoist 'body-oriented' approach.
 
Anyway, the article below is the explanation why in spritual books about 'finding the ideal job' or finding 'your soulmate' I have, so far, stopped short when you were asked to 'send out what you wish for'. My fear? Getting what I wish for without knowing (yet) if that is what I really want. I remember the story of the women who wished for a Ferrari. She send out her wish into the universe day after day. And so it happened: one day a red Ferrari crashed into her garage!
So, as they say, be careful what you wish for as you might get what ask.
 
But how does this work. This wishing is the same as what people who believe in God do when they pray. And then they get what they asked and of course see that as a confirmation as the existence of God. I have another explanation. Thoughts are energy. That energy can be picked up. It is actually something real. As Einstein already discovered mass and energy, or matter and energy are the same (E = m x c x c, E = m times c squared). So if I send out a thought it gets picked up and becomes part of what you could call the 'collective unconscious' [het gemeenschappelijk onderbewustzijn]. As we continuously and inconsciously tap into that collective unconscious we are unconsciously influenced by it.
 
Carl Jung already explained how symbols are part of the collective unconscious.  And many symbols are universal. But if I come from the West and I meditate a lot I might at some stage 'see' images of Jezus. No surprise because that is part of our collective unconscious. At the same time however if someone in Saudi-Arabia meditates he might end up seeing images of Allah.
Of course if we are Christian and believe in God the mind is conditioned and the chance we see images of Jezus or even God increases. The same for a Muslim in the Middle East.
 
So, read the text below, how can a leaf receive the thoughts of 400 people? Does a leaf has conscious? Not the way we have it, but it is matter and thus energy, so there is no reason why it cannot be influenced by energy send to it. But this experiment is all the more amazing as it is monitored by scientists. More and more science is confirming what the ancient sages (e.g. the Toaists) already knew many centuries ago. Exciting stuff of the mysteries of life!
 
All the best,
 
Jeroen 
 
 
Quote from the e-mail:
 
"Just a few weeks ago 400 people sat in a conference hall in London for the launch of The Intention Experiment. On the Sunday, March 11th, at 5pm GMT, the audience, as one, started to intend for a leaf to ‘glow and glow’. That leaf, by the way, was some 6,000 miles away in a laboratory in Arizona.
 
The chosen leaf glowed so brightly that the physicists monitoring it were astonished by how luminous it became. Now those remarkable results are soon to be published in a prestigious science journal."
