Using the Force

“Everything in Life is Vibration”
– Albert Einstein

33I had a marvelous physics teacher once who so captured my imagination, he set the ground work for my interest in Reiki as well as for my magnum opus (scroll back to previous posts to learn more.) I remember he held a glass of water and told us there was very little difference between the glass and the water it help. Of course there are differences. One is mostly made of silica (SiO2) the other (H2O) comprised of hydrogen and oxygen. But that’s simple chemistry and not at all what he was getting at.

To physicists, the big difference between the two is how the molecules move. The molecules of the glass vibrate slowly, and because of that, the glass is hard. The water molecules are in high-speed motion and because of that, the water is fluid. (If he had somehow held a cup of steam, they’d be faster still.) This movement at a molecular, atomic, and sub-atomic level is known as molecular vibration. Living things also vibrate.

To those who study it, this vibration is referred to as life energy. Hippocrates, the well-known physician of Ancient Greece, called it the healing power of nature. The 16th-century alchemist Paracelsus called it Archaeus – the luminous, radiating healing energy that surrounds and permeates the body.

The concept of a life force has been around for thousands of years and spans the globe.
The Lakota refer to this force as ni.
The Navajo call it nilch’i.
In Africa it’s known as Ashe.
Hawaiians call it Mana.
To the Egyptians, this was Sekem.
The Hindus refer to this life force as Prana.
The Ancient Greeks called it Pneuma or Thymos.

In China this is Chi, the life force strengthened by such focused activities as Tai Chi and Qigong. In Japan, it’s called Qi. Qi is life-force which animates the living forms of the world. What is it exactly? I suppose the best way to describe it is, it’s the vibratory phenomena that flows from, and surrounds all, living things.

yodaTo Yoda, this is the Force.
Here’s an interesting clip from Bill Moyers.
It’s clear he doesn’t know what to think of Qi.

Here’s an interesting albeit simple explanation of Reiki

snowflakebordrholly5There was a time when cards and letters exclusively told friends and family you cared. Vintage holiday postcards and greeting cards were often beautifully done things. That and the sentiment behind them were the reason so many were kept as keepsakes. From now until January, I’ll share vintage holiday postcards for you to enjoy.

Scroll down to see previous vintage postcards and learn how postcards became popular greetings to send, what is cost to send them, and about the big changes made after WWI.
