How to Activate Your Life Force Energy: Align Your Spine and Hold Your Flame

As those of you who read Raw Food Life Force Energy will recall, I emphasized that the human body is not made of some dense matter, as it may seem, but of living light-energy. Remember the tenets of quantum physics as originated by Albert Einstein in the equation: E = mc2. Let this knowledge inform the way you carry yourself. I call this “holding your flame.” Yes, your body, that sometimes hard-to-rouse-out-of-bed lump of flesh is actually living light. At its very essence, light is fire! Therefore, you, my friend, are a living flame!

The spinal cord, which is the core of the body (like the core of an apple) is the fire-rod-axis which conducts your life force. Running through your spine is your spinal fluid, whose essence is pure energy. If this energy were visible, you would see it move as a fluid light current following the donut-like pattern of a torus. Picture the light-energy flowing into you from the head (the crown chakra; or the positive, male pole) while simultaneously flowing from below in the root chakra (the negative, female pole). In this way, the current runs up and down the length of the spine until it reaches the opposite pole, then moves outward and around you to re-circulate fresh energy.

Everything in the fruit and vegetable kingdoms follows the torus pattern of energetic flow. It is the flow of all living things—from the smallest atom to a massive tree. You can even see this lifeline flowing within a carrot, an apple, or a Brussels sprout! The energy enters from both directions and flow into, through and around the plant, giving it its life force and fanning its indwelling firelight. Likewise, from the macrocosmic perspective, our earth, the other planets, and even the solar system follow the torus pattern, sending indwelling life through their cosmic pranic tube.

Like the earth, when your inner pole/axis is rightly aligned and moving energy in swift waves, harnessing both the negative and positive poles equally, your being will thrive. This is why physical and energetic blockages (through unfit foods and unhealthy relationships, environments, and experiences) are so damaging. Disturbances in the energetic flow manifest in our physical body in the form of illnesses. Becoming aware of this is the first and best step you can take to revive your inner flame.

Tune into and align yourself with your flame.

Now, I ask you to sense your body as a living flame whose greatest intensity runs right through the vertical axis of your body. Next, I would like you to feel this flame’s power in the chakra centers of your body. Feel the power take hold at the base of your spine in your root, then feel the creative energy in the area halfway between your root and your navel. Then feel the Life Force Energy awaken in that flame at the spot right behind your navel. Next, feel your heart center surge with the power of this fire; allow the fire to rise into the throat opening and enlivening that area so you can express yourself more authentically. Feel the heat in your forehead as the flame rises in your brain, between your eyes, and then finally allow it to surge through your crown, up into the higher realms where it will connect with the more spiritual dimensions of your energy field. Notice how your posture naturally lifts, opens, and surrenders to the graceful flow of this energy.

Instead of merely straightening your posture, note the effortless rise of your body once it embodies the flow of this flame. Notice that it does not cause you to stiffen. Notice how it lifts your mid-spine and opens your shoulders like wings. Notice how it lifts and draws back your head back ever so slightly, like that of a swan or a giraffe. Hold your flame, feel it rise and emit its powerful energy all around you. Open up to its fullness. This is your natural alignment and your indwelling power.

Remember this as often as you can as you walk to work, shop for groceries, type emails. Notice how much clearer and how much more heart-centered your communications and emotions are when you hold and embody your flame.

The way to fully activate your Life Force Energy is to fully activate the pranic tube (“sahsumna” in Sanskrit). It is said that through this power you can overcome aging and even death. Such an empowering concept, yet so few people are aware of it.

In loving service,
