The Ruach HaKodesh: What can we know of “it?” Class 4
This is the final class in this series, and I believe the most stimulating as we combine some of the concepts of science related to resonance and the human circulatory system and how our ability to modify that resonance can facilitate the connection to the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit). This is not “New Age” teaching; rather it presents a relationship rarely used in the right context to establish a flow of energy between the human soul and G-d to whom it is inextricably connected.
It was taught that in order to put oneself in a position to receive the Ruach, one had to remove oneself from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Ramah, in the time of Samuel, was such a place where the prophets would gather. We know that Yitzchak was alone in the field “meditating” when Rivka and Eliazar approached. Yochanan was “in the Ruach” while in exile on Patmos. Elijah heard G-d’s voice not in the storm but in a still small voice. Prophecy requires mental quietude, and one must be trained to achieve that state when it is physically quite so one can also have it when it is not so quiet. This is one of the basic teachings at Beth Elohim Messianic Synagogue that reflects the scriptures mention of the necessity and ability of some who were trained in this practice.
As we progress through the end times, the ability to “find” peace and quiet enabling us to meditate in G-d will become more important . As we lose our freedom to come and go as we please, socialize as we desire, and travel, we must be able to find our peace as did Yosef(Joseph), Yochanan (Yahshua’s cousin), Sha’ul(Paul) when they were each imprisoned; and Yochanan(John) on Patmos in isolation. This is not an easy skill to learn but it can be done and will benefit anyone who takes the time to learn. Establishing a connection to the Ruach through spiritual, humble meditation is the next best thing to “face time” with G-d as we can get on this earth.
What things assisted the aforementioned individuals to receive prophecy which was so intricately tied to the Ruach? Music often played a large role. As we saw In Sha’ul’s experience, music often accompanied it. Elisha used it as a way of “inducing” the Ruach (II Kings 3:14-16). Music is known to assist or facilitate the reduction of extraneous thoughts and breaking down or negating the ego. Thereby facilitating a connection to G-d. Music plays a large part in the worship of G-d in the heavenlies. When we experience the Ruach, we join in that worship. Keep in mind the music described in G-d’s Torah is not Rock and Roll, Rap, or Hip Hop. In fact, each of the Hebrew letters has its own resonance and sound that is quite ethereal. We shall explore this in more depth in a moment.
There were also specific physical positions described in scripture that assisted the worshipper, including the spreading of the hands toward heaven such as we do when reciting the Sh’ma (Ezra 9:5) and kneeling (1 Chron. 6:13). Also understanding and use of the various names of G-d were and are part of opening oneself up to the Ruach. In addition to the recitation of the names of G-d, meditating on scripture, particularly the Psalms has also been a recognized method of bringing about the Ruach HaKodesh. Many of the Psalms, particularly those written by David and Moshe, where either guides to the prophetic experience or were composed in that “state.” And, as evidenced in Acts, the experience can be “transferred” from one righteous individual to another, often through the laying on of hands.
What was the experience of the Ruach like? There are several emotions associated with those who established a connection to the Ruach, including rejoicing, singing, crying out, or even weeping (Isa. 24:14; Ps. 17:1). This is one of the reasons the Talmidim were accused of being drunk exhibiting emotions and the fantastic nature of the experience. At its deeper levels, it includes focused attention on the mysteries of G-d found in the Torah. Because the Ruach experience was so rare in the time of Yahshua, no one had the ability to see the mysteries of G-d found in the Torah that would have revealed the Messiah so obviously. Such concentration also enables one to clearly see and understand biblical concepts. Answers to questions, and solutions to problems clearly.
Getting back to the idea of adjusting our human circulatory resonance in order to “synchronize” ourselves to the Ruach, let’s explore this phenomenon.
My doctoral dissertation and research involved an experiment whereby I used a specific composition by Mozart on patients who experienced chronic wounds. The hypothesis was that those who listened to the music during their wound treatments would show a decrease in blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and pulse from these physiologic vital signs taken before the treatment. Although there were variables in the experiment that were beyond my control to manipulate, the results showed that there was a difference, although it could not be ascertained whether the difference in the measurements was due to just the music or if my presence and the attention given to the experimental group eased tension and pain levels during the treatment. However, meticulous experiment related to music and the human condition were done by Dr. Sergey Shushardzhan Prof, MD, DMed, PhD, who is also a founding member of the International Association for Music and Medicine. I had the privilege of speaking with him regarding his work very kind but was unable to share his work as it is written in Russian and there was no one to translate. Nevertheless, that someone who is medically and musically trained is exploring resonance and the human condition related to healing and other areas of health provided much encouragement for me to continue pursuing the subject of circulatory resonance and healing.
Our minds are taught from birth to recognize three states: waking, sleeping, and dreaming. We cannot know is there is another state unless our nervous system is prepared for it. Yet, the Torah describes individuals who were able to “connect” to the Ruach outside of the three states with which most of us are familiar. Truth be told, the mind wants to “find” or “connect” to this fourth state which is really a connection to the Ruach. Meditation is the way to point the mind in the right direction. This involves changing the resonance of the circulatory system because no human organ system is independent of the others. If we are anxious in our minds, our stomach, liver, pancreas, nervous system, respiratory system, even our integumentary system becomes anxious. In the words of those with transcendental knowledge say “ thoughts are like ocean waves. Rising and falling, they see only their motion. They say, “ I am a wave,” but the greater truth, which they do not see, is, :I am ocean.” There is no separation between the two, whatever the wave might suppose (Choppa, 1989, p. 189).
This concept applies to the mind also. When the mind is engaged in thinking, there is continuous activity. But when it is not actively thinking, it returns to a state of silence. Only then, when the mind is not distracted by anything else, can it reach pure awareness. This ability to reach such a level of awareness can be learned and achieved by anyone at any time. The key is to move vertically in the stream of consciousness and not horizontally. That is, we need to concentrate on a vertical awareness such as on Jacob’s ladder; that is descend in ourselves/egos and ascend toward the Ruach HaKodesh upward. In this way we begin to identify with the Source, beyond our earthly perceived reality.
Robert Keith Wallace was a physiologist who in 1967 proved that the fourth state; a hypometabolic state induced by trained meditators exists. Similar to my doctoral work, Wallace conducted his PhD research on the physiological changes that occurred during Transcendental Meditation. He measured brain waves, blood pressure, heart rate, and other areas of physical change. The subjects sat for 20 minutes using the meditative technique taught to every meditator.
Within a few minutes, Wallace discovered that the experimental group entered a state of deep relaxation evidenced by slower heart rate and respirations and by the appearance of alpha waves on electroencephalograms. Oxygen consumption decreased and the metabolic rate slowed which indicates a decrease in the cells fuel consumption. Subjective feelings reported by the subjects were described as inner silence, peacefulness, and relaxation that was validated with the change in objective measurements. These individuals were full awake and reported a feeling of heightened awareness. Some of the subjects demonstrated physiological changes beyond the average and prolonged stretches between breaths. These individuals reported a feeling of profound expansion and knowingness. “The mind was emptied of all specific thoughts but left with the clear awareness of “I know everything” (Chopra, p. 190).
Wallace’s experiment and other reports of this complete peace and awareness by those trained in Transcendental Meditation can be equated to changes in human circulatory resonance.
Through resonance, a comparatively weak vibration in one object can cause a strong vibration in another. In other words, resonance is the ability of a system to achieve maximum efficiency when absorbing energy when the external frequency’s oscillations match the system’s natural frequency.
Resonance is another word for synchronized vibrations that lies at the heart of human and animal consciousness. All matter is simply vibrations; the entire universe vibrates.
There is a very interesting phenomenon that occurs when two vibrating things are place in close proximity. If left undisturbed, they often synchronize at the same frequency. This is called the phenomenon of spontaneous organization. This happens when photons of the same power synchronize to form lasers (Hunt,2018).
Examining resonance is important to our topic of “connecting” to the Ruach because it is all about synchronizing our humanity with the heavenly (the Ruach) that necessarily requires shutting out the white noise of the world and our egos, which results in synchronizing our hearts and souls with the Ruach.
Earth’s natural heartbeat rhythm is the frequency of 7.83 Hz, also known as the “Schumann Resonance”. A 7.83 Hz frequency is an alpha/theta brainwave frequency in the human brain. Alpha/Theta brainwave frequency is relaxed, dreamy, sleepy state, that is also when cell regeneration and healing happens. It is no surprise that people in our world today, especially around large cities and angry, moody, depressed and that disease is occurring astronomically. We live in the time of rapid and uncontrolled technological changes with superficial wavelengths that disrupt the natural earth’s frequency. Cell phone, Wi-Fi and the plethora of other electronics are part of our everyday lives. It is also why our bio-electromagnetic waves are out of balance. We are out of balance from Earth’s electromagnetic frequency. For example, the frequency of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation such as that that powers television, phones, and such ranges from 30,000 Hz to 300 Billion Hz. That is a significant amount more than 7.83 Hz that the earth radiates. It is not surprising then that humans are psychophysologically out of balance and crave healing.
” The electromagnetic fields generated by power supply systems, telecommunications, appliances, computers and other technology produced by humans are extremely powerful and, in some cases, have been associated with increased incidence of cancer, heart disease, depression and other diseases. Exposure to strong electromagnetic fields in residential areas and in certain occupations has been documented as significantly increasing the incidence or risk of the listed diseases. Certain groups of people such as the elderly, children, women who are pregnant and the weak have been found to be more sensitive or susceptible to adverse effects from these fields than the rest of the population. (As is often the case with research, there are opposing opinions on the existence or extent of such adverse effects.), “(Hearth Math Institute).
It has been proven by scientific experiments that tuning into 7.83Hz, the planet’s own magnetic frequency people experience benefits like enhanced learning/memory, body rejuvenation, balance, improved stress tolerance, anti-jetlag, anti-mind control, and grounding. On the other hand, experiments were done, where Schumann resonance, the exposure of 7.83 Hz frequency was removed from individuals environment. The subjects reported migraine headaches, emotional distress, and other health problems. This shows how important it is to be in tune with the Earth’s resonance not for general health and well being only, but to further enhance our ability to connect our souls to the Creator for some serious one-on-one time-out sessions.
One new advancement in technology that may be seen as positive for healing health maladies is known as the Quantum Therapy Med-Bed and they come in three different varieties with three unique functions. They use various vibrational and frequency levels with 3D scanners and refracting lenses. They also use lasers for opening and closing wounds. These beds use light and energy through tachyonic particles and plasma energy.
Now, this sounds great because these healing beds may benefit those who need organ transplants, those who have missing or injured or severed extremities, or those who may needs skin grafts. Skin grafts work with cell memory, stem cells, and DNA templates. This is where we must now look closely at how this technology can be used to manipulate human beings for less than ethical purposes.
The technology in these beds “performs live scans of the human body; diagnosis and treats any imperfections and illnesses within a short amount of time and great accuracy; scanning every inch and system within the physical body, diagnosing and interpreting of blood, skin, bones, organs, muscles, neurological, glands, and hormonal deficiencies. This Med-Bed will also perform a painless blood and DNA analysis, searching and correcting any hereditary markers leading to various predisposed illnesses” (Forwarded from Qtuber Digital Soldier, 2021).
The Rejuvenation and Regression bed “rejuvenates cells; offers age and memory regression therapy; and heals all the senses, especially sight, sound, and taste, that have become dull through trauma or age; this therapy bed also eliminates unwanted suppressed memory, which will support and heal so many victims who have endured mental and emotional anguish…. This is also considered the fountain of youth. It will return the appearance of yesteryear, returning muscle tone, tightened skin, working with our individual DNA templates….” (Forwarded from Qtuber Digital Soldier, 2021).
Take note of the underlined words (my emphasis) and consider the ramifications this technology can have on humanity. These beds scan and analyze individual DNA and can make “corrections” accordingly. Another of the bed-types can eliminate memory, but only unwanted suppressed memory is mentioned. This technology interferes with the natural G-d-given resonance of the human body, earth, and nature for purposes that can be either beneficial or evil.
As we study G-d’s Torah and the wonder of phenomenon such as the diverse resonance of creation, we need to stay focused on G-d’s purpose for mankind; the fact that He made a perfect universe in the beginning, and humans cannot improve on the perfect interplay between the human body and nature designed by G-d. We must scrutinize all that we are exposed to including what the media presents in its various forms and compare it to G-d’s Torah if we are to remain “in synch” with our G-d.
In conclusion, there is no doubt that meditation to establish a deeper connection with the Ruach HaKodesh/G-d was part of the early believers’ community. Yochanan’s revelation is one example. Sha’ul’s experience of the heavenlies, another. Kefa (Peter) said that what was happening on Shavu’ot was a fulfillment of Joel 2 and that the experience of the Ruach was available to anyone. This would be demonstrated in the life of Cornelius and his household first, and to many other Gentiles in the future. YHVH was recreating a community of intimates with Him. he does this by the Ruach, enabling and empowering us to obey His Torah. When believers moved away from strict Torah observance, the experiences with and the power of the Ruach once again went into exile. What we see today without evidence of Torah observance is nothing more than soulish behavior. The Messianic Community with its emphasis on carrying the Testimony of Yahshua and guarding the Commands of HaShem have an opportunity to attain the highest level through the Ruach HaKodesh, making it available to all once again. That is, if we are willing to learn and to make the sacrifices piety demands. If and when we take this challenge and subject our lives to YHVH/Yahshua for His glory and not our own self -aggrandizement, we may again walk in the power and “ecstasy of the Spirit.” Ken ye he ratzon (May it soon be so).
