Aging does not have to equal “getting old”

September 27th, 2010 by Jennifer Grainger

This past Saturday was the beginning of the 84th season of the Stockton Symphony. I hated missing Suzie Bower’s Drumming Circle, but I had symphony season tickets and a companion to accompany me, so there I was.

The performance was terrific, as usual, but I was appalled by the physical condition of most of the people in the audience. 99 percent were elderly and feeble. Bent over, using walkers and canes, unsteady in their gait, many overweight, I thought to myself “this is the end result of our food supply and pharmaceutically based ‘health-care’ system.”

The tragedy is that it just doesn’t have to be that way! With proper nutrition and self-care most people can age in great health with vitality and vigor right up to their last day on the planet.

I am reminded how often I hear people accept their aches and pains as a normal part of aging. I have an aunt that I once heard say she “deserved to have a cane” since she was 74. What a bunch of hooey!

We wouldn’t dream of buying a car and driving it until fell apart, never applying standard maintenance saying we can’t afford to buy new tires or change the oil. Yet when I suggest that regular massage and chiropractic adjustments, along with organic food and a moderate exercise program will ward off “old age” aches and pains my words do not penetrate the false belief that aging means “getting old.”

I’ll put it a plug for my chiropractor, Dr. Jeanette (Jet) Reed. When I began seeing Dr. Jet about 8 years ago I had “age appropriate” aches and pains. Fortunately I had the good sense to continue with regular chiropractic care after the aches and pains were gone. Then the magic of rejuvenation began. I’ve even “grown” 1/8th of an inch at an age when others are “shrinking.”

Don’t for one second believe that aging means “getting old.” It is never too late to start on a program of self-care. Just start somewhere and grow from there.

I’ll also put in a plug for my food coach, Nicole Ramirez (www.NaturalFoodHeals.com). Once I learned how the digestive system works and the invaluable benefits of colonics I easily “upleveled” my dietary choices. These days I run out of fruits and veggies and have to make a grocery run . . . quite a contrast from my previous experience of having to throw out fruits and veggies I had bought and “forgot” about.

When I turned 50 “a few years ago” (yeah, right!) is when I started a serious exercise program. While I was huffing and puffing away on my stair stepper or Nordic Track I’d keep myself going by holding the intention of being able to climb two flights of stairs carrying two bags of groceries at age 90!

Use it or lose it!

Take care (seriously, dude!)

Who Can You Trust?

September 22nd, 2010 by Jennifer Grainger

Who can you trust? Not the food industry, for one!

Once it became general knowledge that high-fructose corn syrup is linked to diabetes, which, BTW is RAMPANT in this country, the high-fructose corn syrup industry spent millions on a campaign to convince the public, and young mothers in particular, that "Hey, stupid, it is made from corn, so it is GOOD for you."

Well, since that didn’t work, mainly due to people "waking up", and the speed at which information circulates among family, friends and colleagues, the high fructose corn syrup industry is now petitioning the Food and Drug Administration to change the name to "corn sugar."

Whoo, Baby, we’ve come a long way . . . in the wrong direction. Whatever happened to integrity?

At the beginning of this year, my guide, Otmon, told me that 2010 would be The Year Of Light . . . no more secrets . . . that which had been hidden in the shadows would come into the light.  That has certainly proven to be true.

Politician’s affairs. Corrupt banking practices. Egg industry atrocities. Corporate shenanigans. And on and on . . .

The positive side of this is that more of us are taking personal responsibility for our decision-making, doing our own research, checking in with our own guidance, rather than relying on outside authorities to tell us what is right for us.

I call this being inner-directed, rather than outer-directed, and a basic foundation necessary for expanding consciousness and growing spiritually into being your Authentic Self.

Becoming inner-directed aligns perfectly with the HUGE consciousness-awakening humanity is experiencing. More and more of us have integrated our heart with our head, developing our sixth sense, deflecting the slings (you’re selfish) and arrows (all you care about is yourself) of those who would like to control us, and trusting our own sixth sense to guide us to what is right for us.

In December of 2009, Otmon told me my purpose is to become a 5th dimensional being, and to help others do the same. At the time I didn’t know what a 5th dimensional being was, or how to become one. This year has been one of learning how to clearly differentiate between the 3rd, 4th and 5th dimensions of reality.

While expanding my consciousness to incorporate the higher-mind of 5th dimensional reality, I’ve also been required to clear myself of 3rd dimensional energetic debris stored in my body as limiting beliefs, and unresolved emotional and physical traumas.

What a roller coaster ride it has been, living mostly in the 4th dimension of conscious awareness of the realm of subtle energies, while swinging wildly back and forth between the 3rd and 5th dimensions.

Exhausting! Exhilarating! And more to come in 2011!

BOTTOM LINE: So the answer to the question “who can you trust?” is . . . yourself! The more you expand your consciousness, the better connected you are to your own sixth sense, also known as your natural knowingness, which is your link to Source.

TIP: Eat real food, not chemicals masquerading as food. You’ll recognize the chemicals by their names. Like dextran, dextrose, diatase, ethyl maltol, fructose,  glucose, lactose, maltodextrin, mannitol, sorbitol, sucrose, all of which are deceptive names for sugar!

P.S. If you’d like to strengthen your ability to be aware of 4th dimensional reality, (obviously a pre-requisite to becoming a 5th dimensional being) consider taking the Awakening Your Light Body class in 2011. I’ll say upfront, it is a BIG commitment of time and money, and oh, so worth it! Mark your calendar and start saving your money! This class is a gateway to mastering the 4th dimension of the living matrix of subtle energies.

What has been your experience of the recent roller coaster ride between dimensions? What emotional releases, physical sensations and mental gyrations have you been experiencing. I’d love to hear from you.

Business as usual

September 15th, 2010 by Jennifer Grainger

News story on page 12 of today’s (9/15/10) Lodi News-Sentinel: the high fructose corn syrup industry has applied to the Food and Drug Administration to change the phrase “high fructose corn syrup” to “corn sugar.” This blatant attempt to disguise a known disease-producing (diabetes, for one) food ingredient in order to maintain sales/bottom-line profits is astounding, doncha think?

Instead of looking for a way to do something different with the product to make it a product that promotes well-being, or phase it out and create a different product that does, they literally want to shove it down the throats of unsuspecting humans.

Do these people feed this stuff to their kids?!

I’ll have more to say in my newsletter next Wednesday. Right now I am too busy shaking my head at the sheer absurdity of some corporate decisions.

Hello, corporate people . . . we are all ONE . . . what you do to others you do to yourself!

’til Wednesday
Jennifer

How to Recognize a 5th Dimensional Being

September 8th, 2010 by Jennifer Grainger

I got a call from my friend, Ramona, the other day. We had met at a networking event a few years ago, and have met a few times for lunch since then. I felt a bond with her from the get-go because of her openness and questing spirit.

She’d been cleaning out her desk and came across my card, which prompted her to call. She’d had a few unsettling conversations around the topic of 5th dimensional beings, so she was calling to get my take on the subject.

This is what I told her:

A 5th dimensional being is best described as a fully conscious person who is “in the world, but not of the world.” They are completely aware of the complexity of levels and layers of the energy field we exist in. They create whatever they need from the unmanifest potential of this energy field. They know everyone is capable of doing this.

They understand that people are at all different levels in their understanding of “reality.” They easily meet people “where they are at.”  They are known for their kindness and compassion and do not impose their teachings on anyone, yet are accessible to students who come to them for guidance in becoming fully conscious – a process commonly referred to as spiritual growth.

I personally don’t know anybody who consistently lives from a 5th dimensional perspective (including me)! But I do know a whole bunch of people who are working hard at breaking free of the illusion of 3rd dimensional reality by doing what it takes to expand their awareness and build their consciousness.

Believe me, breaking free of the quicksand of 3rd dimensional reality is really, really tough. It took me almost twenty years to complete the journey of consistently living from a 4th dimensional perspective. There are so many factors at work to maintain the status quo. Expanding awareness beyond the 3rd dimension to include the 4th dimensional reality of subtle energies is a two steps forward, one step back process, with plenty of doubt along the way.

Carolyn Myss, in her book, The Anatomy of Spirit says “ . . . becoming conscious requires stamina. It is extremely challenging, and often very painful, to evaluate our own personal beliefs and separate ourselves from those that no longer support our growth.”

Amen to that!

Our Spiritual Growth Community is loaded with Pioneering Souls who are the leaders of their soul group. That is, they are the first one in their group of family, friends and acquaintances to realize the presence of the 4th dimension.

Have you ever seen a bucket of crabs? When one of the crabs is trying to climb out of the bucket, the others are pulling it back down. That’s what it is like being a pioneering leader of your soul group.

The most favored pastime of 3rd dimensional people is frothing over who is right and who is wrong . . . which is the fodder for so many “he said/she said” conversations, political debates, and religious arguments! Terrific for getting the emotions juiced, and better than TV (no commercials), not to mention the great ego satisfaction that comes from getting others to collude with them that they are right!

BOTTOM LINE: The 3rd dimensional paradigm is on its way out, yet the majority of the world’s population still resides there. You must expand your consciousness in order to perceive 4th dimensional reality. “It’s only your imagination” is a very powerful obstacle to overcome. Once you begin “living” in the reality of the 4th dimension, you find the trauma-drama of 3rd dimensional living (if you want to call that living!) quite trying, if not boring. 

TIP: If you are a leader in your soul group (that is, the only one who has interest in spiritual growth) the hardest thing to do is become a real leader by “turning your back” on your tribe and forging the trail out of the illusion of the 3rd dimension into the open space of the 4th.

Someone has to be the first to lead the way. Looks like that is you! (Yeah. I know. Bummer!)

ANOTHER TIP: You cannot help people out of a pit by getting down there with them.

P.S. The more you can surround yourself with people who live in 4th dimension reality, the faster you will develop your ability to live there too. Take classes, join groups, read books, hire me as your Spiritual Growth Coach, whatever you are drawn to do.

P.P.S. Be sure to enjoy the journey. I can assure that once you get to the 5th dimension, the 6th will begin to call to you. There really is no “there” to get to.

Where are you in your journey of becoming conscious? Are you still the lone pioneer in your circle of family, friends and acquaintances? Or are you noticing some people beginning to fade into the background, while new people are coming into your circle? Or have all the 3rd dimensional people left your life, and you are in the good company of 4th dimensional people who are growing into 5th dimensional beings? I’d love to hear from you!
