One of my most favorite learning
experiences was when I was taught about the electromagnetic
spectrum. Something about the simplicity of that
chart, showing the relationship of various types of
energy. I was intrigued by the fact that we're surrounded
by energy of differing wavelengths and frequencies,
some of which we can observe with our senses, some
of which require special equipment.
I'm impressed with the ingenuity
of scientists who discovered the principles of electromagnetic
energy and have exploited the spectrum for our benefit.
Radio for communication, microwave ovens for convenience,
x-rays for medicine, are just some of the wonders
developed over the past century. I wonder now if the
principles of this spectrum can be applied to spiritual
One of the identifying features
of new age religions is the use of crystals for healing.
Crystals were also used in radios (prior to the digital
age) to tune in specific frequencies. According to
some, crystals were used in Atlantis for a wide range
of purposes, including power generation. Perhaps further
scientific work will re-discover these principles.
Could the spirit realm simply
be operating at frequencies outside our normal capabilities
of discernment? When we share love or are the recipient
of love, could the warm sensation we feel in our chest
simply be us tuning into the frequency of love? The
more we share and experience love, the better our
By the same token, when we
strive to develop our spirituality then we can increasingly
"tune in" to messages sent to us from the spirit world,
whether they be inspiration, dreams, or visions. The
Bible speaks of Moses and Jesus being transfigured
prior to them receiving personal communication from
God. I think all the major religious leaders of the
world were able to receive spiritual messages from
beyond. Edgar Caycee
was "tuned in" to information from the spiritual world,
and he provided thousands of psychic readings to benefit
those around him. I've visited a psychic for a past
life reading and she was remarkably in tune with the
spirit world. She told me things no one without a
true spiritual connection could come up with.
I think each of us has the
capability to tune into the spirit world. However,
each of our receivers works in a different way, and
we have differing ways of manifesting our spirituality.
The important thing to remember is we all have these
capabilities. It's up to us to do what's necessary
to improve them, and use them to help others. I certainly
make no claims to any great spiritual gifts. I don't
see visions and I can't do psychic readings or anything.
Although, I do feel inspired though on occasion to
say or write things at a certain time.
I remember the first time
I felt this form of inspiration. I was attempting
to write a high school graduation speech. I sat down
at my desk and the words just poured out onto the
page…they weren't mine. I felt tuned into something
higher. The ideas flowed, they made sense, and my
speech was one of those chosen to be read at our graduation
Since that day, I've often
felt that same inspiration flow through me. Again,
nothing major, no Nostradamus-like predictions, just
things communicated through me to help those around
me. It was this same type of inspiration that led
to the creation of this site, to choose its name and
develop its content. It isn't the most beautiful,
or most comprehensive site out there, but it is the
one I felt inspired to create. It isn't my message,
but the message that comes through me. I hope we can
all increasingly tune into the spiritual frequencies
that surround us, to help us cope with our own lives,
and to bless the lives of those around us.
