Today the shadow effect is
in the news. What if I told you that you have a perfect health spiritual
? It’s true. It’s kind of an avatar connection like the relationship
between Krishna and Arjuna in the Hindu text Bhagavad Gita. An inseparable best
friend, healthy light force shadow constant companion with a ton of healing
power supports your whole being. You can interact with it and you do not have
to be physically fit to do so.  

Your perfect health
spiritual double shadow of light is an invisible, potent energy field about the
same size as your physical body. I actually saw mine one day in 1999.  

Cultivating a personal
relationship with your light force shadow constant companion may be a
tremendous comfort in these intensely changing times, may amplify your own
healing process and an ever-deepening richness of your inner world. Consider
this. Your inner and your outer world are interwoven. They are two parts of the
same Whole like an inhale and exhale.

Here is what

I was leading an ordinary life with an agonizing disability.
I met an absolute perfect health energetic double of me that I could see
clearly in my mind’s eye and feel as if the double were a physical person standing
as close to me as you could get to someone without actually touching them. I
met my spiritual double when I was in some of the worst pain and immobility of
my life with rheumatoid arthritis. Imagine how surprised I was. I had no idea
such a thing was even possible, let alone that I might ask to see something so
remarkable as an absolute perfect health energetic double of me. And, it did

It’s been years since I first I saw a perfectly healthy,
young, svelte energetic double of me, and I knew instantly that I actually was
this person. Now we have become inseparable. I am conscientious that we move
together, like a pair of dancers with one partner standing on the other’s feet
as we dance.

The ancient world says

In the early 1900’s, through some amazing
circumstances of his own, a Japanese scientist named Master Jiro Murai, came to
be studying some of the world’s rare sacred texts. He found common threads
among all of the different texts that pointed to a natural phenomenon. From his
research he discovered that there is a perfect invisible double of each human
being constantly feeding life into the physical body by filtering higher
frequency energy influences of the planets, Sun and Moon as well as the twelve
constellations of the zodiac, which relate to the 12 thoracic vertebrae and 12
organ functions of the body, for example. This is important because this
formless or invisible activity of the perfect invisible double made up of
cosmic star stuff influencing a physical body, is known as the order of
creation of life. Jiro Murai eventually compiled his body of knowledge into the
principles of the healing art known as Jin Shin Jyutsu®.

My spiritual double
and I meet…

It was November. It was evening. My husband and I had already
eaten dinner.

I went along with my husband to watch him do his aikido martial
arts routine. (Aikido loosely
translated means “the way of harmony of spirit.”) I walked into the dojo with
the assistance of my rolling walker, a strange looking, and clunky, metal thing
with special arm rests for people who cannot hold onto the walker very well. My
husband helped me sit down in the back of the room in a comfortable padded
chair, the same chair from which my husband would have to lift me up when the
aikido practice was finished, because I could not get out of the chair by
myself. The other aikido students and my husband, barefooted, and dressed in
their white tunics and pants with various colored belts prepared to work out on
the large cushiony, matte floor area.

The sensei (a Japanese word meaning teacher or
master) instructed everyone to warm up by doing a breathing exercise, then he
led everyone in two different exercises to increase “ki” spelled k-i
which is Japanese for “chi” or spirit energy).

Next the teacher introduced something new. He put on
some music, it sounded like a Jai Uttal song that started out slowly, had a
really strong drum rhythm with an accelerating tempo and increased in depth and
texture as additional musical instruments entered the song. I had made a mental
note that I had never heard this song before and I really liked it. Sensei then
told the students to move to the music with their eyes closed if possible, and
“find your own rhythm.” The teacher called this “Aikido-mai” which is
Japanese for the dance of Aikido.

Now, I am sitting in my comfortable chair in the back
next to the large white matted floor area filled with fluidly moving bodies,
each in their own personal dance of aikido. I had followed along with the
students on the mat and had done the breathing and ki building exercises
along with everybody else, only I did the exercises seated in my chair.

All of a sudden an absolute perfect double of me
stood up right in front of me about two inches away from my body! My etheric
double was facing forward as my physical body was facing forward in the chair.
My spiritual double stood up and raised its arms in the air like you’ve seen in
pictures of the person standing on top of the mountain or looking out at the
ocean with their arms raised in the air in a V for victory.  

My heart was overflowing. I began to silently cry as
I kept my eyes closed and continued to move my arms and hips to the music, all
the while I am in awe of what I am witnessing. I remember the perfect double’s
perfect posture, and felt her perfectly toned organs and breasts and muscles
and joints, and hands, strong and healthy, as if they were mine. She was a
youthful, in the prime of her life perfect double of me. She turned her head to
the left, looked over her shoulder at me and smiled. I knew the double was me.
My life would be different from this moment on.

Now, it just so happened, as if this all wasn’t
amazing enough, while the spiritual double was showing itself to me, the
pregnant wife of the Sensei was looking at me sitting and moving to the music
in my chair. The wife mentioned this to me after class. The woman said she felt
a huge loving presence surrounding me. It felt so strong, said the wife, that
it made her shift her attention from watching everyone moving on the matted
floor area, to watching me in the chair.

Was it the “ka” body?

Was I going crazy? If so, I liked this kind of crazy.
Did I, and vicariously, the pregnant wife of Sensei, witness a physical
manifestation of my non-physical, soul self, or what the ancient Egyptians
called the “ka” or spirit-twin? The “ka” or spiritual double carries the
consciousness of a deceased person for example and is the active principle of
Spirit in a living person as well.

If it happened to me, then surely it must be possible
for you, and I know you do not have to be in perfect physical health.

Here are 3 keys to
developing an environment conducive to meeting your spiritual double:

 1. A regular habit or practice
(repetition) of raising your energies or frequencies to a high place of love
and compassion; energy healing self-help such as Aikido or Healing Touch Quick
Steps or Jin Shin Jyutsu, for example.

2. Include your physical body in the
process, as with singing or hearing sacred music, or moving your body,
exercising it, and being present with all of your senses to your awareness of
your body even while sitting in a chair as you would in breathing and building
“ki” or Spirit.

3. And, if you really want to have
an experience meeting your spiritual double, ask for it. Request it, saying it
out loud.

What appears to be an important part of the potential
meeting is the inclusion of your physical body in your preparation. One of Aikido O Sensei’s editions of poems
contained this preface: “Those who train
in Aikido [the way of harmony of
must never forget that the teaching has to be forged in one’s
very body. Always keep in mind the Divine workings of creation, from beginning
to end, and ceaselessly learn from the gods. Make the entire universe your dojo (school of training).”

Based on the advice of various masters who have gone
before us, we are encouraged to plan for and prepare for such opportunities as
meeting with our healthy shadow of light spiritual double. Make room for the
possibility. Meeting your spiritual double is possible. Let it be so!

Take god care. Take good self-care.

Many blessings,
