When we experience ‘bliss’, we are tuning into the state of consciousness that is experienced through the full activation of frequencies in the body. When we are aligned with our bliss instinct, we feel good. Some people associate bliss with a sexual feeling; to me it is much more – it is the expression of the language of the soul. It is a heightened state of sensation, when there is fullness in presence, completeness in being, and (more than anything) less thinking and more feeling.
And that’s really the goal of holistic living; to get to a place where that sensation of happiness and bliss is at the core of your life, and everything else (blissful or otherwise) revolves around its center. However, we can all testify that this is not how we live our lives and it is not how we have been taught to live our lives. For this reason, it is important to our spiritual development that we start questioning our limiting beliefs and consciously decide if they are the best ones for our overall growth and happiness.
One element that is often overlooked in our search for happiness is the physical experience of our feelings. The body is the vessel through which we experience life; it’s the lens, the conduit, the vehicle through which everything else is made possible. All of our experiences go through the tool of the body. In essence, our physical experience of our feelings is our experience of life.
To help you tune into your bliss frequency, I’m going to ask you to do a very simple exercise because a lot of the things about our happiness and bliss start with absolute simplicity. Rate your bliss level now, from a scale 1 to 10.
And now tune into a time, when you felt very blissful. It could be a time when you graduated or met someone that you love, had a baby, got a promotion in a career that you really cherish – whatever it may be. Go to that moment. I’m not asking you what you think, I’m asking you to remember how it felt. Can you tap into that feeling?
Now go deeper into a state of extreme bliss – it could be something unimaginable, or something that is not even in the realm of possibility. It could be that you are flying, or going on a space mission – something that is really ‘far out’, that you feel you would love to do, but not something that you are pursuing right now. Tune into that experience and feel the feeling. Now rate your bliss again.
Now feel into a moment where you were very sad, or when you felt numb or depressed, or energetically very dense; when you felt stuck, like things weren’t working for you. Now tune into how your body feels, and rate your bliss.
You get the idea? There is a very distinct connection between the body and bliss. Can you see this connection?
The body is the very vehicle that enables us to experience the sensation of bliss. We feel it in our physicality. This body/bliss connection is a vital element of our being to tune into and hone if we want to feel blissful and live blissful lives.
Bliss or bust?
One of the most common ways people seek to increasing their happiness is through psychotherapy, which involves going back and looking at all the different programs in your life. You look at everything that has happened in the past; how you were hurt, how your family, your schoolmates, your colleagues and your friends treated you. It centers on revisiting trauma and pain.
This reflective kind of process has its value, but the problem is that our minds do not distinguish between our thoughts and our actual experience. When we start paging through the chapters in our life trying to look for the things that veered us from the path of bliss, we dwell in those experiences and further embed the negative vibration in our bodies. It can also seem to take an equal amount of time to reassess the life that you have lived as it actually took you to live it! So if you are going back through 30 years of pain and programming at the age of thirty, you are going to be almost 60 years old before you have been able to examine every moment of programming and pain that brought you to that point.
It takes a lot of time and energy to approach the healing process as a purely mental exercise, re-living every event that may have taken you away from your bliss and inner power. And as our emotions and our physical experience of bliss are so intimately connected, for many, the process of psychotherapy is never actually complete.
The other way we can approach this kind of healing is to look at every reason that we have to be grateful, and to focus on what makes us blissful today. When we focus less on all the things that we are unhappy with and focus more on the things that make us feel grateful, we train ourselves to be happy with what we have and to find the bliss in the current moment — instead of dwelling in the pain of our past. There are many exercises like affirmations, meditations, mindfulness, gratitude and contentment exercises, as well as energetic healing modalities that can help us get back to our place of feeling better and re-aligning our mind and body to our bliss instinct (remember, it’s all connected).
Healing is all about getting to a place where we are feeling better, not worse, and where you focus your energy plays an enormous part in this.
At the end of the day, regardless of what you are pursuing, you are trying to get to a place where you feel fulfilled and happy. And certainly, if you don’t think that that’s the truth for you, it’s something worth looking at.
What else are you seeking besides bliss? If you aren’t seeking bliss, isn’t there something missing?
What is missing is the body.
Cleaning the lens
Since the body is the lens through which we are experiencing life, if we are not seeking bliss in our choices, we are blocking the light of our soul and our spirit to come through the body. When the lens of the body is dirty, the projection of our reality is clouded and dense. It is not pleasurable or blissful, and we experience feelings of depression, and things being ‘off’. We do not feel aligned, happy, joyful or ‘in the flow’, and we do not feel powerful. We become irritated. We feel like we don’t have enough time, or enough freedom, and all sort of frustrations settle in.
There are countless ways in which the body, the vessel that holds the consciousness of your bliss, becomes blocked. The feelings and emotions that you have picked up from past programming and experiences in your past are all stored within the DNA of your body. And this blocked energy within the physical body can start manifesting in all different areas in our lives.
This understanding is very important because not only provides us a clear view of the problem, it also provides us the remedy.
There is a universal intelligence within you that can reveal to you what is the ‘false code’ of experiential programming, and what is supportive of your bliss. There is also a way to press the ‘purge’ or ‘reset’ button, instead of having to go through all the different lines of code embedded in your DNA (or decades of psychotherapy!)
So if you were able to purge the physical body of that which is not working for you, wouldn’t you do it?
Working directly with the DNA and the body’s emotional intelligence is the most the efficient way to get rid of the emotional vibrations that are not effective in your life. When you start going deeper into the functioning of bliss on a physical level – the neuro-anatomy of bliss – there are hormones in the body that generate sensations. These hormones generate sexual sensations, and sensation of love and bliss. There are hormones that tell us to care for our child, and there are hormones that tell us to eat when we are hungry.
Through these hormonal sensations, our body is constantly communicating to us what we need to make ourselves balanced and blissful.
Upgrade your sensory reality
The key is in merging with your physical body, which means you’re going to have to upgrade your sensory reality. The sensations that are coming out from the glands have to be in their natural state and not a programmed state. We have to re-learn the programs that are true to our nature so we can return back to what it feels like in our activated, fully vibrant state.
The body is simply an instrument through which the soul expresses itself, so the better we get at using it the greater the possibilities we enable. Like a musical instrument, the more notes and chords we know and use, the greater our potential to create.
Within the body is a full octave of glands and organs that resonate on a certain frequency. When the white light of consciousness enters the body, it refracts and travels through seven different organs and glands with seven different frequencies. Each frequency regulates the characteristics and color of light emitted. For example, when the consciousness light enters the pineal gland, the energy emitted is violet due to the specific vibration of the gland. By that standard, our ‘bliss frequency’ – what we call The LumenOctave – is the light of consciousness experienced through the full octave of frequencies in the body: the seven frequencies plus the origin of the octave (the high ‘c’).
When the instrument is tuned to the “correct” frequency, amazing things happen. This is the state where we are most blissful, most beautiful, most thriving and most divine. It is a deeply felt, tactile sensation that is released in the physical body when we follow our own unique energetic path. Even simple changes can help us cultivate and live in the Bliss frequency, if we learn to feel not just our emotional responses but our body’s tactile responses as well. Tuning into your body’s feelings will guide the way and never steer you wrong.
Once we tune into our body’s subtle responses, and let them guide our experiences, our body begins to returns to its healthy natural state. The organs and systems receive healing bliss vibrations, which takes organs from trying to “get by” to “healed” to “thriving”. As our body begins to function according to its innate intelligence, we find ourselves living in alignment with our ‘bliss instinct’ – and our body responds by producing oxytocin, the bliss hormone.
Oxytocin: the bliss hormone
Oxytocin, the bliss hormone, is also known as the love hormone or the bonding hormone. It plays an important role in our social bonding, our happiness and sense of wellbeing. It helps to create an holistic and sustainable sense of goodness and wholeness; the special kind of happiness that you feel when you are safe and you are loved, when you are surrounded by people that care for you, when you know that you are secure and well fed, and you know that everything in life is in it’s ‘right place’.
Oxytocin directly affects behaviors like social recognition, pair bonding, orgasms, and is a major hormonal component of the maternal instinct that helps mothers to bond with their babies, triggering all kinds of hormonal, emotional and behavioral interaction between mother and child.
The interesting thing about the oxytocin hormone is that it is released by the hypothalamus, which is the ‘master’ gland that in turn triggers the production of other hormones in the body. When we activate the hypothalamus, it then activates the pituitary gland, which then sends signals to other glands within the body – the adrenals, the thyroid, and the gonads – which in turn, are also connected via hormonal feedback loops. These hormones work with one another to make sure that your body is well regulated and functioning at its peak — and it all starts at the hypothalamus with the release of oxytocin, the love hormone.
In this way, love can be seen as literally the regulating force in our lives. So, why not use that sensation of love and bliss (or absence of it) to teach us what we need to do to get our body back into shape, back into energetic balance.
The key to returning our body to its natural state is coded within the bliss frequency. We all inherently have this code within us, it’s just a matter of learning to access it and use it to our advantage. Like our DNA, our consciousness plays an active role in determining when and how our glandular system works. When we learn to sense these feelings in our body, we can begin to activate the glands, the hormones and the sensations, and bring the frequency of love in our physical being.
The natural state
What is the natural state? What are the things that are stopping these natural functions from happening? What is the real ‘junk in your trunk’?
The natural state of our being is a balanced state of homeostasis. It’s the state where the body’s ecosystem is functioning at its fullest, all the glands and organs are working at their best potential, all processes are being triggered in perfect compliment. In this state, the endocrine (hormone) system triggers the lymphatic system, the digestive system, the reproductive system, and everything is working at a perfect harmony like a well oiled machine (only better!)
From a mind/body perspective, it is firstly beneficial to recognize that the natural state is the neutral state, and align your thoughts and actions toward getting your body back to that state.
To achieve this balanced state, we will want to make sure there are no parasites in the body, intercepting the body’s hormones (parasites love to feed on hormones, affecting organ and gland functions) and depleting the body’s energy. We will also want to make sure that there are no physical blockages or toxins impeding the path of our blood and our lymphatic fluids; this ensures a clear channel for hormones and thus the sensations they create to move through the body.
Firstly, we must consider the effects of toxins on the body. Toxins include anything from heavy metals to synthetic pharmaceuticals to chemicals and plastics, that bind with your body’s fat deposits, creating cellulite and coagulated crud within the body. Visual signs are noticeable in people who have a disposition to “problem areas”; in these cases, the fat is binding with toxins within the body, and no amounts of exercise or working out seems to get rid of it. This is because it’s not just pure organic fats and oils that your body is struggling to deal with, it is trying to process fat mixed with plastics, for example, or heavy metals.
Today, toxins are also commonly found in our water supply, are ingested through processed foods and produce treated with agricultural chemicals. We also absorb toxins through our largest organ – the skin – from cleaning products, as well as our increasingly poisoned natural environment. Toxic chemicals like fluoride form a calcified layer around the pineal gland, which regulates your inner clock and sleep cycles, works with your adrenal glands to handle stress, feeds the thymus gland, and communicates with the rest of the endocrine system. All other glands in the body (thyroid, adrenals, prostate etc.) are also severely under attack by radiation, as well as vaccinations (which contain heavy metals and other toxic elements) and toxins inherent in GMO agriculture.
Some of other things that are also detrimental to the healthy functioning of your body is parasites, which feed off your physical ecosystem. Your energy feeds them, they have babies, create nests — they have their own agendas and purposes. Often times parasites start mimicking your own consciousness, and because they becomes so merged with our own ecosystem, we tend to feel and think that their consciousness is our consciousness, and their cravings are our cravings. Therefore, removing parasites from the body is something that is really beneficial – even necessary – to returning to your natural state. After all, you are not going to have a healthy flourishing inner garden while there are pests draining your ecosystem. By eliminating parasites from your body, you feed your self and nourish the blissful state being that you are rather, than feeding the parasites that are living within you and encroaching on your consciousness.
It is a very important to make sure these invaders are dealt with in a proper way – the natural way. Putting more chemicals into the body to kill parasite is really not an ideal way to address them. It’s no different from spraying Roundup on a food crop to get rid of pests – you just trade one toxin for another.
The solution to creating an environment that is not welcoming for parasites is to neutralize the body’s pH. When we consume meat, sugar, alcohol and many other “normal” things in our diet, we ingest a heavy acidic component. When we do this regularly, our body’s pH goes far into the acidic spectrum, causing functional imbalances in the body which then spiral the body further into the acidic spectrum. It’s a vicious cycle that creates more cravings for acidic foods while also feeding the damaging microorganisms in your gut that really thrive an acidic environment. Reducing or eliminating foods such as sugar, meat and alcohol from your diet is the best way to support your body’s natural pH level.
Detox rituals for the Utopian body
There are so many pollutants that we are exposed to on a daily basis that we have to actively and consciously make decisions that support our body, and our natural state of bliss. If we want to maintain a lifestyle where new pollutants and parasites are not allowed in, there simply has to be a lifestyle change. There is a whole other way of living life that we were not taught but it’s something that we are having to re-learn so that our protective ‘shield’ remains strong and we can live in homeostatic balance every single day.
First, purify, cleanse and detoxify your body. Learning how to ritualize detox is the key to your success. We often want the quick fix solution like buying a detox kit and hope it will sort all of our health issues. However, the key is in learning how to make a lifestyle change, and it doesn’t take that much to make it.
To help you achieve this, I’ve created a free course to share with you 8 of my bliss rituals and protocols, and the tools that make them “game-changers”. Designed to help you get started on your journey toward health, happiness and bliss, these tools are the result of years of extensive research and practical experimentation to find natural detoxification methods that actually work.
My journey to health was a long and arduous one with lots of disappointments. I looked searched the entire planet for solutions to returning my body to its natural, fit, healthy, detoxified state.Many things over-promised and under-delivered. But through perseverance and intensive research, I was able to finally crack the code.
Once you begin navigating your life and your body from from a blissful state, it becomes a lot simpler to notice when you are about to fall out of balance, and can take steps to correct it. It is certainly easier than to trying to correct an imbalance months or even years down the track. I am a true testimony to this this fact.
The benefit is that everyday you’ll feel good and send a message to your subconscious mind that you love yourself, care about yourself and you to do something good for yourself. If we know how to actively cultivate a sense of wellness and love that is hardwired within our bodies, we’ll inevitably thrive. We make choices that are from a place of security and happiness, and safety, and we gravitate towards the things that make us feel more love, make us feel more beautiful, more healthy, more satisfied, more abundant — more bliss.
