When the poles last shifted in 1O,5OO B.C. and we fell in consciousness, we stopped breathing in the ancient way that we had practiced for so long. We started breathing in the way that we do now, which is very unusual. Hardly anyone else in our universe breathes this way.

In general, there are two things which we take in when we breathe. There is air and there is prana. Prana is life-force energy itself, more vital than air for our existence. Prana is not just in the air, it is everywhere. There is nowhere that it is not; it even exists in a vacuum or a void.

Prana exists as an energy field connected so closely with spirit that spirit cannot exist without it. If you take air away you have a couple of minutes before you die; if you take water away you have even more time; and if you take food away you have more time still, but if you break prana from spirit, death is instantaneous. So taking in prana with breath is a crucial act in sustaining our form of life.

Prana and the Chakras
We are supposed to breathe such that while air comes in through our mouth and nose, we take the prana in through the top of our heads—that is, what once was the soft spot on the top of our heads. Simultaneously, we take the prana in from below through the perineum. The prana channel through the body is about two inches in diameter and extends one hand length above the head and one hand length below the feet. It connects with the crystalline grid around the body. The prana then comes from above and below the body and meets in one of the chakras. The chakra in which the prana meets depends on where you are mentally, emotionally, and dimensionally “tuned.” This is a very specific science.

After the poles shifted we stopped breathing in this manner and started taking in the prana through our mouth and nose directly with the air. The prana then bypassed the pineal gland in the center of the head. The pineal gland is an eye, the third eye, not the pituitary gland. It is shaped like an eyeball, round, hollow, and with a lens for focusing light and color receptors. It is designed to receive light from above to go to every cell in the body instantaneously. As it is shaped like an eye it is also a vesica piscis, the image which comes out of the first day of Genesis. This geometrical shape is the beginning of all creation, and contained within it is all sacred information of the universe.

When the pineal gland is not activated, however, it turns off. Normally this gland should be about the size of a quarter but in us it has become the size of a pea because we haven’t used it for about I3,000 years. The direct result of turning off the pineal gland is polarity consciousness—good and bad, right and wrong.

The MerKaBa Meditation
In my Igniting Your Inner Light Course I will use the universal language of sacred geometry to first show you the Oneness of life, and then to show you the energy fields around your body. This will enable us to proceed to the next step, which is the teaching of the MerKaBa Meditation.I will also give you its’ companion, the Unity Breath Meditation You will leave the workshop with a clear understanding of how to do both of these meditations. When properly understood and practiced on a daily basis, the MerKaBa Meditation will enable you to re-establish the proper prana flow, and in combination with the Unity Breath Meditation, will allow you to feel and experience the Unity of being.

Until we re-establish this proper prana flow, we will continue to see things in terms of good and evil, but in fact there is no such thing as polarity. Everything actually has three components—the holy trinity—and no matter what polarity you think of there will be a third element to it; for example, with hot and cold, there is warm, up and down gives you middle, etc. From higher dimensional levels of existence polarity is just an illusion. Unity is all there is; there is just one God and one Spirit that moves through everything. All that ever occurs then is occurring because of the one God.

On our level of existence we interpret things differently. We think we see good and evil. What is really going on, however, is timing. The forces of polarity are necessary for the proper functioning of the universe. Remember, the dark forces do everything they can to hinder a particular area of consciousness, be it on a planetary or individual scale. The light forces do everything they can to encourage consciousness expansion and awareness. This opposition causes consciousness to move upward at exactly the right pace. In the birth of a child, for example, nine months is the proper time, not three months or fifteen months. The forces of polarity cause the child to be born at exactly the right time.

So given where we are, we need to see good and evil and be aware of them, but we also need to recognize that the presence of God is in every situation and that there is a reason for everything that happens. We need to see that everything is whole and complete and perfect and that there is nothing wrong no matter how bad or how good it may seem. We need to see that life engenders a deep conscious aspect that is everywhere.

In our state we tend to think that we live inside this body, that everything “out there” is separate from us, and that our feelings and thoughts don’t manifest beyond ourselves. We think that we can hide our thoughts and feelings and they have no impact “out there.” This is simply not true. Everything that we think, feel, and do is creating our whole world all the way out to the most distant stars. We are creating everything in every moment, more so than we could ever imagine.

Breath Alchemy
I also teach the Breath Alchemy Technique, another very empowering way to consciously breathe prana. It is the perfect compliment to the MerKaBa Meditation as it enables you to create integration of your fears and limitations into your greater sense of well being. This allows your heart to open, which in turn, will ensure that your living MerKaBa field is functioning properly.
