The Three Dimensions of Love

 

3d2

I woke up thinking about love, because love conquers everything, and from a metaphysical point of view, (which I have mentioned before), love is simply high frequency energy.

When we allow love in our lives, we vibrate at that high frequency, we tune in with the high frequency energy of the universe and we get access to its limitless possibilities.

Unfortunately, there are times when we don’t allow love in our lives, when instead of feeling love we are in fear, or we experience any feelings in the path of fear as sadness, irritation, or anger to name some. These feelings tend to be very easy to experience when we deal with one of the most basic forms of love, which is the love for our significant other.

If you are experiencing that at this time, I recommend you read the following, extracted from “The Enlightened Relationship: Mastering the Metaphysic of Love” by Steve Smith:

“Imagine you and I start from the same location and one of us walks East and the other walks West. At one level of awareness, which we will call “two dimensional”, it appears that we are walking in opposite directions and getting further apart. If we shift to a “three dimensional” awareness and look at the situation from above, we could see that the Earth is round and that we are walking both away from each other and toward each other at the same time. The fact that we are moving further apart and closer together at the same time can only be perceived at the higher level of awareness. If we keep walking around the Earth, we will pass each other on the opposite side and eventually meet in the same location in which we began…. If we are contemplating these ideas and we don’t quite grasp its truth, it usually means that we haven’t experienced the level of awareness required. We may have heard a particular spiritual truth repeated many times, but it won’t have significant meaning until we have an experience that allows us to see it. Our consciousness is enhanced through our experience, and we become able to perceive from this expanded view. So open your mind and be willing to play in the fields of paradox, and just remember – the more you know, the more you realize that you don’t know.”

If it is difficult for you to shift to a “three dimensional” awareness, help yourself practicing The Five Morning Habits to Win the Day, and if possible, invite your significant other to practice as well.

If you recall, yin and yang are the two types of energy that give birth to everything that exist.

There are yin and yang energies in the environment, in our emotions, in our thoughts, in our body and everywhere. Therefore, there are endless applications of yin and yang but probably the most important is health because according to Traditional Chinese Medicine good health is only attained when yin and yang energies interact and reach balance.

To contribute to your own yin and yang balance, and reach optimal health, have a yin-yang balanced diet taking in consideration the following:

  • Yin food is cool while yang food is warm.
  • Most animal proteins are considered yang, especially red meat; white meat is also considered yang but at a lower scale.
  • Most vegetables are considered yin but there are different levels of yin, and all root vegetables are considered yang.
  • Whole grains are moderately yang while beans and lentils are moderately yin.
  • Eat more yin foods in summer to cool down and more yang foods in winter to warm up.
  • What if you don’t like animal protein in your diet? Cooking yin foods increases their Yang energy so sautéing some vegetables and tossing them into your raw salad makes the trick for a more yin and yang balanced meal.
  • Roasting is the top yang cooking method so eating roasted root vegetables or any type of vegetables instead of boiled root vegetables or any type of vegetables is an additional alternative to balance your energy intake.

The possibilities are endless…leave me a comment if you want to know more.

BTW, when you follow the third habit explained in The Five Morning Habits to Win the Day, you force yin and yang energies to interact so that habit is great to trigger yin and yang balance.
