Change the Molecules, Change the World III

“Art is a noble skill, and offspring of the material mind of mortal man, inspired by a cosmic loom that carries the fabric on which the self, the small “i” weaves the patterns of universal character with the supreme self, the capital “I”, and holds enduring values and spiritual expression. Artists serve as humanity’s eyes of the soul. In so far as the evolving being, becomes permeated by truth, beauty, and goodness as the value – realization of an illumined consciousness, and this applies to each and every one of us, not just ‘artists,’ such a resultant being can become a force of indestructible love. If a soul does not seek eternal values and love, then mortal existence is without meaning and life itself becomes an inescapable and tragic illusion.’ ~ Philip Rubinov Jacobson, “Promethean Flames.”

God is infinite intelligence, infinitely diversified through infinite time and infinite space, manifesting through an infinitude of ever – evolving individualities.” ~Herbert Spence, Phiosopher

While pop culture cycles through fads and trends in advertising with superficial images designed and destined for marketing, inspired artists continue to work their transcendental and mystical magic. The purpose of art, in particular visual art, is to command attention, inspire, evoke emotions, create a communion between the artists and the arts, and communicate something that is often beyond the realm or grasp of mere words. Conscious artists, those aware of their platform and their power, and who create with the intention, often conscript their talent to change minds, hearts, and sometimes the world.

Joe Vogel, author of “Man in the Music,” tells the story of Michael’s recording in the studio, of “Earth Song.” He relates how Bruce Swieden, music engineer and producer, and others in the studio that day, were startled and froze at the sound and quality of Michael’s voice as it came roaring out of the dark, as it was his custom to record in the dark. Those who heard it told Vogel that it was as if Michael was channeling the very lungs of the planet crying out for respect and stewardship. Says Vogel, “this is Michael Jackson” at his finest, in his element, and as visionary artist.

Philip Rubinov Jacobson laments the state of art in modernity:

“The role of art has not been truly defined in our time and artists and students of art rarely gather anymore to examine and discuss their ‘calling,’ nor do they even see themselves as ”being called.” And yet, art is like a priesthood, and one is called to it. Nor are they interested in practicing a creative process of the Spirit.

Soul – artists restore a spiritual dignity and purpose to the age-old practice of art. Art has become empty of spirit whereupon the creative mystic is driven to restore its soul and uplifted from its wretched and stinking apathy, it’s aimless anarchy, and its utter lack of human feeling, vision and force of inspiration.

A new worldview is needed a world – centric, even a theo – centric, perspective and integral art are called for. The artists’ model of the rugged, isolated individual is ineffective now and a more collaborative approach between both artist and community is essential and could be initiated. The contemporary artists who have breached and reconciled their interior experience with the outer world through spiritual practice, have now posited themselves as potential points of inspiration for creative community development and therefore for the larger tribe…”

Jackson was one of the most prolific, powerful and impactful tribal cheerleaders this world has ever seen and that recruitment and encouragement for humanity to step into its highest and finest incarnation of what it means to be human, is consistent in his work, particularly his lyrics. His music and dance that would not allow his audience to stand still and not participate, instead invited an interactive in-the-moment collaborative creation between artist and observer and seduction into a spontaneous hand, or shall I say body, in the creation of the art itself. He literally changed the molecular structure and harnassed the quantum non-local communication between ‘the beauty and the beholder’ with a force mimicing magic one the one end of the spectrum of creative fire, and baptism on the spiritual end.

In concert, that communion and baptism became exponentially amplified: those grounded in their hearts feel it; those grounded in their minds know it; but those awakening to or grounded in their spirituality went into a kind of joyful ecstacy or if it was too intense, fainted.

Chopra has called Jackson a “mythical being.” As a meditator who studied with Chopra as his guru, and a religious man raised and grounded in the Jehovah Witness faith, Michael Jackson practiced perpetual adoration for creation, gratitude and prayer. Those practices set up a standing wave in the human brain and a measurable wave of resonance surrounding the source. The very air crackles. The molecules sizzle.

Jackson knew that to change the world you have to “blanket” the molecules; you must change the self. As a meditator, a religious man, a practitioner with an established spiritual practice, who prayed all day and even on stage, practiced love and gratitude, believed and honored the creator in all his work and life, metaphysician and transcendentalist who studied Rumi, Hafiz, the ancient and modern mystics and spiritual teachers, Michael understood the molecular structure of the world and how it worked. He believed in the evolutionary advancement of human consciousness, the spiritual re/e-volution of humankind and his art served that evolution.

Art has always influenced and helped design and define the future. The artist and provocateur submits his art as a challenge to humanity and extends an invitation to come hither. As one observes the art and interacts with it in observation, identification, and sometimes communion, the unspoken questions are not heard with the ears, but with the heart: “Is this who you want to be now? In the future? Is a change needed? Then how will you make that change? How will you be the change?”

Or with the soul and its silent Spirit.

The next time you hear these songs, instead of listening with your ears or intellect, listen with that other part of you:

“We’re Takin’ Over
We Have The Truth
This Is The Mission
To See It Through

Don’t Point Your Finger
Not Dangerous
This Is Our Planet
You’re One Of Us

We’re Sendin’ Out
A Major Love
And This Is Our
Message To You
(Message To You)
The Planets Are Linin’ Up
We’re Bringin’ Brighter Days
They’re All In Line
Waitin’ For You
Can’t You See . . .?
You’re Just Another Part Of Me . . “

“And when that flag blows
There’ll be no more wars
And when all calls
I will answer all your prayers, prayers
Show the world

You can change the world
(I can’t do it by myself)
You can touch the sky
(Gonna take somebody’s help)
You’re the chosen one
(I’m gonna need some kind of sign)
All cry at same time tonight”

“Gotta make a change
For once in my life
It’s gonna feel real good
Gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change”

“There’s A Place In
Your Heart
And I Know That It Is Love
And This Place Could
Be Much
Brighter Than Tomorrow
And If You Really Try
You’ll Find There’s No Need
To Cry
In This Place You’ll Feel
There’s No Hurt Or Sorrow

There Are Ways
To Get There…

In This Bliss
We Cannot Feel
Fear Or Dread
We Stop Existing And
Start Living

And The Dream We Were
Conceived In
Will Reveal A Joyful Face
And The World We
Once Believed In
Will Shine Again In Grace

Be God’s Glow

We Could Fly So High
Let Our Spirits Never Die
In My Heart
I Feel You Are All
My Brothers
Create A World With
No Fear
Together We’ll Cry
Happy Tears
See The Nations Turn
Their Swords
Into Plowshares

Heal the World
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the Entire Human Race…”

“You and I must make a pact
We must bring salvation back,
Where there is love, I’ll be there. (I’ll be there)

I’ll reach out my hand to you
I’ll have faith in all you do…”

“When you’re down and out, there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe there’s no way we can fall
Let us realize that a change can only come
When we stand together as one

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
Its true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me.”

“Every day create your history
Every path you take you’re leaving your legacy
Every soldier dies in his glory
Every legend tells of conquest and liberty
Every day create your history
Every page you turn you’re writing your legacy
Every hero dreams of chivalry
Every child should sing together in harmony

A soldier dies
A mother cries
The promised child shines in a baby’s eyes
All nations sing
Let’s harmonize all around the world…”


Michael was asking you to wake up, come hither, and be the change in order to change the molecules. You change the world by inhabiting LOVE, by demonstrating and radiating that frequency to others. “Make that change,” he was saying and “be the change.” The world can’t help but follow.

    Very Good, I love your series: Change the Molecules, Barbara. Today at my church, we talked about how we all should be the ” living gospel”. Gospel means “the good news”. Reading those songs all remind me of the good news. When we love one another, we are one with God, for God is love and we have the ability to spread it to those that are open to it. In order to truly be connected with the most high, we must be the living word, not just talk about it. They say when we sing, we pray twice. Whenever I find myself singing to one of Michael’s song, I feel like I’m praying and I suddenly feel happy. Michael’s songs brings “happiness and love”. When someone brings that much love, it simply means that he was the living word.

    More accurate is that he was the word living. We are all that in becoming, P. Only the cynical and truly self loathing and self condemning cannot examine that idea. They will hold up Jesus the Christ as proof even though he said we could do even greater miracles. Keep shining. ~B

    When faced with the finest example of a shining soul, so so many went out of their way to condemn. The beauty that shone from Michael Jackson was indescribably lovely. He was a living example of what we could all become, if we lived in our higher self. Often that journey to a more enlightened state means going through the dark night of the soul, but the view from the other side is worth the journey, no matter how painful it might have been.

    Michael used his art to show the way to a better tomorrow. His genius lay in reaching all types of people in all types of ways, but always with the same message. He was a threat to the status quo, he shook society out of it`s comfort zone, and he paid the price for that in years of abuse and bullying.Yes racism played a large part in it too, and still does. Next on the agenda will be his children for sure.

    When will humanity embrace the light bringers, instead of reaching for an easy way of condemning and marginalising them? What will it take to wake up folks to the wonderful possibility that they are? God given light is in all of us: find it, embrace it, and live throught it and you are changed forever. Now… do we convince those shadow dwellers to take off their dark glasses and look at the light, and love what they see there, how do we convince them to love and embrace self? Tough question I fear, but I`ll keep striving to find an answer. Coming to Inner Michael certainly helps, Thank you Rev Barbara, you are a sane voice in the wilderness that upholds us all.

    Last night I went on YouTube (don’t always get the chance) and I viewed many videos of Michael receiving Humanitarian awards and his speeches. For someone who was, As Drew Pinsky described “a pathological child,” Michael met with world leaders and travelled all over the world on behalf of humanitarian efforts. So much for that theory. And what kind of doctor analizes people they have never spoken to or met? Did you hear his speech at Heal the Kids at Carnegie where Drew Pinsky, by the way, was in attendance? Or his speech about freedom and equality, or his speech at the WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM that was, I think, in 1996? Where he spoke about the neglect, sexual abuse, emotional and physical abuse of children? This is the side of Michael the world must see, Barbara, or it will never end. Maybe in 30 years from now when I am no longer here and I wait for the day when Michael’s true legacy will shine.

    If a documentary shown inernationally is NOT shown, it will never happen. Because no matter what you say, most people, even prominent people, have never seen Michael in that way. Just my humble opinion.

    There were parts of Michael Jackson’s world as a child that were pathological. Most children are not prodigy material so they are not rehearsed and disciplined and paraded around to venues nor allowed to stay up beyond bedtime in strip clubs; that is not normal. There are those who, because they have “heard” and believe the collective meme, extrapolate that because Michael’s ecosystem was pathological, he must have been as well. The flaw is not in the extrapolation; it’s in the unexamined assumptions inherent in the false premise that created the premise to be false. As is true with crowd psychology, everybody assumes that everybody else knows what they’re doing and so goes along with it.

    Michael did finally understand his father’s drive and even his form of “encouragement” as saving his children from a life that might have made them really pathological in drugs, crime and violence. Joe Jackson did the best he could in the circumstances he was given and his love was a tough love to get his family out of a bad situation.

    The responsibility for that lies directly at the feet of white America that resisted moving beyond a form of its own genocide. What you do to one, you do to all. Neither the red man who stayed on the reservation nor the black man who stayed in the ghetto could escape the despair that comes from poverty and marginalization from the culture. As Michael matured, he understood his father’s motives; thus the forgiveness.

    No good doctor diagnoses from afar, or someone they’ve never met. There is no clear distinction anymore between speculation and opinion, and fact. The issue is the 24 hour TV programming, and news cycles and competition for ratings– and I have said before that programming is made to sell networks and air time- not to accurately inform. We are all immersed in a cynical vibe; Pinsky is not immune. What Michael said is true: “say something enough times and people begin to believe it.” The culture and media has backed itself into a dark hole that will be difficult, and cost lots to get out of. You see articulate and informed Jackson fans issuing rebuttals everywhere and demanding accountability. That is part of the work involved in changing the world to a more humane place for everybody. It’s not a small game they play. It’s important to ask what came first: societal values informed by media? Or, media informed, and therefore driven, by societal values? You yourself and many, many others are clamoring for accountability and change. Thrust toward change always brings up at least equal resistance. The cheapest and easiest way to resist is to discredit your critics. Or to persist with your paradigm until you wear them down.

    There are factors that led up to where we are and why Michael Jackson was the world’s whipping boy. It was deliberate, it was protracted and it was ugly. It was also random. And it was accidental too, and picked up momentum toward critical mass when once set in motion. A prefect storm. Carnage is easier to see when it is caused by someone else; when it’s your carnage because you caused it, looking away, staying in denial and whistling through the graveyard keeps your mind off your own guilt. History is maleable; you can deny it, tell the truth or revise it.

    Hell is a place of dissonance– where your behavior doesn’t match your values and compensation trumps your compassion for human beings. It’s where you deny the light in self and others and it’s a matter of worth. If nobody is worthy of brilliance, the world goes dark. Some people are living there now by their own hand. (Know a few?) Nobody likes the messenger who points that out. The world kills its messengers, remember? By assassination. Choose your projectile weapon– armaments or words?

    There was an operant crowd psychology, a frenzy in an industry out of control and enamored with itself, in a frenetic grab to capture market share and unable to stop or even acknowledge its own derailment. Nobody caught on that the wheels were off the track or if they did, the attendant accident, carnage, collateral damage and destruction of a human being was fair price for obscene profits. It was helped along by a few with real blood lust. And it was made easier by deliberate dehumanization of celebrities by the yellow press who then cashed in on their handiwork. What nobody has realized yet is the real extent of the damage.

    Nobody wants to hear about it because it would mess up the “Pleasant Valley Sunday” and make people responsible and accountable for their part in it. Besides, it’s hardly believable and easy to dismiss when those complaining the loudest are crazy and discredited.

    Consider how you were informed and what you felt when you heard of the troubles in the housing and financial markets: Enron, Wall Street, the Madoff Ponzi Scheme, the banks and the inflated housing market, or the dot com collapse, and how widespread it all was. People lost their homes, jobs, and everything they had saved. Did you believe it immediately or rub your eyes a few times as you woke up to it? If someone had tried to warn those very consumers who were living merrily along in that fragile bubble about to collapse, how many would have believed? Or in the case of the Oklahoma City bombing, would you ever have considered that it was an inside job; that one of your own could have done something so despicable? Or the case of Wikileaks… Who would have immediately believed it if a group of people would have run around yelling “The sky is falling… the sky is falling…?” And yet the sky was falling.

    Then consider any other situation where there was carnage and it seemed so unbelievably beyond a normal range of human behavior or impossible… ovens that gas, char and reduce people to ashes; kidnapping, slavery and lynching; women tried and burned as witches; Roman dispatching of their captives through mauling and dismembering by animals; cannibalism of offspring (currently happening) or enemies; bombs that incinerate every living being within a 50 mile radius; how about the mass murder of children in schools, or all the other “blood sports” of human history? Who could have imagined it? What rational “civililzed” person would believe it?

    And then, what if you were a party to it by your action or worse, inaction? Or if you didn’t quite grasp it all yet, something even more haunting– suspecting it was really wrong or knowing it, and doing it anyway? Welcome to hell. The contemporary blood sport is bullying and the weapons are words.

    These horrific crimes against humanity end when people like you cry “We’ve Had Enough,” and complain; when groups become whistleblowers; when the barbarism comes to light and good people witness its ugliness and act. Slash and burn does not work; non-violent direct action does when prolonged by the steadfast of heart and mind.

    To hear Michael roaring in the dark. That would be something to treasure.
    I believe that I have heard, in person, the same primeval, raw and soul-rending anguish. It was unforgettable.
    It came from my niece while sitting by her mother, the day we buried her.
    Again from her brother when leading the maori haka at her graveside.
    It seemed to me it was coming from their very deepest part and yes, from the bowels of Mother Earth. For myself, I have never been there.
    I mention this because to be really effective, that is where I should be coming from, I believe. More work ahead.
    This also puts me in mind of the ridicule some heaped on Michael over “Earth Song,” that should straighten my back.
    Thank you Barbara for your posts, always a needed lesson there to be found.

    The first time I listened to Earth Song that way, in dim light through heaphones, I had a profound and deeply moving vision, which has occured every time since. I am standing on a spiral staircase made of crystal, that literally wraps around the Earth. The edges of the staircase are filled with plants, trees and a variety of birds and animals. Souls and angels begin to gather, and when the staircase is full, we turn our attention to the beautiful blue planet we call home, and give out healing light and love. As the song ends I feel myself being drawn back to reality, with the feeling that I have just journeyed to a wonderful place where the ascension of humanity`s collective soul is taking place.

    There is a power in this song for me beyond mere words. It`s like Michael has left a coded message in it and I have had the priviledge to be able to tap into it. Just my personal experience of course, but I thought I would share it with you all. Love and blessings from Scotland.

    OK regarding Robbie’s experience – may I recommend, if they haven’t been read by all already, the reading of Journey of Souls, Destiny of Souls and Memories of Afterlife by Michael Newton Phd. – because that was no mere vision – that was REAL. Much has been reported through the years of this Doctor’s research into our lives as the souls we are between incarnations here, that will verify for you the truth of what you saw. We souls can be involved in re-creation, re-generation, repair, and so forth of all that exists here, and yes it does come from our minds. Advanced souls from the realm of spirit do change matter, cells, molecules on planetary scales, and it is done with their minds.

    Look, when they say Michael changed the molecules in a room, they were not being metaphorical. I feel strongly we need to clue in on this without further delay. The Arctic Ice Cap will be melted in 10 years otherwise. Our minds ARE our power. And I believe they are so even more than our voices.

    Dr. Newton’s work involves hypnosis and interviews with more than 7,000 clients and has taken place over 20 years of research. I am familiar with Newton’s work only because I have just recently heard of it from a colleague. But I am not a scholar of it so I can’t vouch for it or the books. Hypnosis has gained respect since it was first introduced but many still dismiss hypnosis as junk science. The hypothesis is that the soul can function through the mind. My experience with “soul speak” is eclectic and comes from many disciplines.

    The Heart Math Institute does research in fields– the electromagnetic reach of the heart. IONS (Institute of Noetic Science) has a variety of studies for those interested in this subject.

    G is right; it is not metaphorical. The mind is powerful; the voice is powerful when accompained by energetics, but the heart is the most powerful.

    Some of this research is labeled “woo woo” among other things, but then they said Galileo was nuts too. They once thought the world was flat, that the atom could not be split, the sound barrier was unbreakable, the Maginot Line was impenetrable, the moon was unreachable and an African American president was unthinkable.

    One day this idea of aura, field, resonance and radiance will be common knowledge. Actual work has been done callibrating the human field. For a basic understanding of fields and what is mean by that, check out Bruce Lipton and Lynne McTaggarts work. McTaggart’s “The Field” is a classic. Here’s the crib notes explanation of the field as it relates to biology:

    Our world is in trouble because we don’t understand the power of the heart and resonance and we are disconnected from our heart-felt feelings. Michael Jackson over and over asked audiences to feel from their hearts; he spent his whole life teaching this heart-centered approach to life. Then he died and cracked open hearts all over the world. Mission accomplished.

    The cynical laughed at Michael, mocked him and much of the world nervously (at first) laughed with them. Almost universally, people felt that it wasn’t somehow right, but in order to not to be considered ignorant, they assumed everybody else knew something they didn’t. The cynical and greedy opportunists kept giving them “evidence” so as to minimize the discomfort until it became standard and even popular to pile on “Michael Jackson.” The real damage of that has never been estimated.

    Yes Rev B, that’s the part I left out – the power of the mind must be mitigated by the heart, the heart must command the ship. The killing pain erupting in the green chakra when we lost the Moonwalker thankfully did allow so many of us to re-locate our hearts if they had dislocated. When the magnificent no longer have to die just so we can find our damn hearts, we probably won’t have to die anymore either.

    Meanwhile, my money’s on the woo woos; why, of course, would I care what the cynical and greedy think of that?

    Two experiences that come to mind regarding the MJ Effect: listening to Speechless stops me dead in my tracks every single time I listen to it; I experience a stillness that I have very rarely, if ever, under any other circumstance. His voice and that song have every cell of my being’s complete and utter attention; listening just to the sound of his speaking voice separated from any interference of an interviewer always, always feels like praying to me. Just listening to that sound feels like praying, more than any prayer I’ve ever said. Seriously.

    Well, if people are very left brained, without creativity or imagination, dismiss their intuition as superstition, and operate from the lower chakras they won’t “hear” some truths that don’t fit their paradigm. I heard Martin Bashir dramatically exclaiming that “some of Michael Jackson’s fans see him as ‘messianic’ and actually [gasp!] live by his songs.”

    The cynical and racists don’t expect to find intelligence in pop lyrics (or a black pop artist,) let alone humanitarian messages like “heal the world;” “save the children;” “we are the world;” “bring salvation back;” or you’re my brother and you’re my sister or “you’re just another part of me.” Music is the perfect language to couch those messages for it needs no translation and reaches more people. Bashir was actually calling millions of people clueless (I wonder what they would say about that?) The whole thing would be laughable if it weren’t so sad, because Jesus said the same things and Michael was inspired by Jesus while Bashir frequently quotes the bible, speaks about Jesus and claims to be a man of faith.

    You care about what the cynical and greedy think because some of them have pulpits and do widespread damage. And that is precisely how the projected shadow-mirror works: who is the clueless one really?

    Indeed Gertrude, what I saw was real.I can journey to that place at will, and have seen such Spiritual beauty there that it has completely altered my way of life. I live now heart centered, and have discovered that the power that has awakened in me is profound. I see… really see all that there is around me. Life fizzes with vitality, and the pulse of… well everything seems to be reflected in my own heartbeat.That pulse runs through Michael`s music; that is why I think we were all so attracted to it and him. We saw, heard and felt something that was so familiar to us even if we could not put it into words. That is the whole essence of Michael`s music, the sound language he created awakens the feelings, the emotions and the heart opens up and all he gifted to us simply flows through that open heart. He has invited us on a journey, and we can do no more than follow, knowing that wherever it leads us, we will be emotionally richer and more enlightened for it. Love and blessings from Scotland.

    Heart – centered consciousness always reminds me of my childhood when my Italian immigrant grandparents would display religious pictures of the “Sacred Heart of Christ” on a home-made altar in their home. Michael lived his life within this space, the space of the heart of Christ and was brilliant when it came to bringing this energy out into the world. Soon after Michael was gone I found myself attracted to the heart energy of the divine. Michael was truly the “heart of the world” so that when he died, I REMEMBERED and was immediately drawn to the image of the Christ with his open heart emanating love into our world. Michael was the heartbeat of the Universe manifested into one amazing being who delivered the message through popular culture, an incredibly brilliant strategy to elicit change for the present day. When listening to the music I can always find the heartbeat which resonates with my own. ….Bravo, Michael, Bravo…

    Those “reminders” and prompts are carried in many traditions– in symbolism, ritual and even music. This is an ancient tradition; the pyramids, for example, are constructed using numeric codes and ratios that are standard in geometry and physics. These “codes” can be found in many civilizations in many cultures and eras around the world. The “Sacred Heart” image is one of those images with codes and meaning on many levels. The idea is to convey subtle power through semiotics and as you point out, remind observers to create heart coherence and entrainment. Art does that better than any other medium and music is capable of it.

    It would be more accurate to say that “Michael embodied the sacred heart or heart of the world,” not that he was the sacred heart of the world exclusively to all others. Those who do not understand this kind of communication think that Michael’s admirers view him as “messianic” and interpret the admiration for him as some kind of devotion to an “idol.” That ability to embody heart coherence, resonate and cause entrainment is not exclusive to anyone. There are those historical figures who are singled out for their abilities, but we are all caplable of it. What would reality be like if we all lived in coherence with our hearts and the world was entrained to that?

    Many divine-seekers emobdy that same resonance and they can create an entrainment in audience. Michael was one of those who mastered heart coherence and was adept at establishing entrainment within his audiences. [The best way to briefly describe “entrainment” is to cite that if a few dozen clocks with pendulums swinging at different rates are left in a room overnight, anyone arriving in that room in the morning will find them all swinging in unison.] “Coherence” is when waves of the same frequency are phase-locked or frequency-locked lock and their symbiosis creates something stronger and greater than their components could create alone.

    These principles are not widely known or accepted as “common knowledge” even though they’ve been around for thousands of years. Those who understand yoga, martial arts and energy healing are more likely to have encountered them through experience or study of subtle energies (bio-electromagnetics) but most have no reason or opportunity to encounter the knowledge.

    There have always been those who intuited this information and encoded it in temples and religious symbols but the science behind it is just now being examined and is very new. Unless one is in a field that touches on this information or has been bitten by the curiosity bug, it remains esoteric. When enough people learn it, critical mass or a tipping point will occur where everyone is aware of this information. But that time is not this moment; thus the scoffing and ridicule by the cynical and closed-minded. It’s not a deliberate ignorance; they just know not. They don’t have “ears to hear” or “eyes to see”– yet. [“When will this mystery unfold? And will the sun ever shine in the blind man’s eyes when he cries?”] It’s standard procedure for humanity to ridicule or fear that which it doesn’t understand.

    Here’s the science behind it from researchers at the Heart Math Institute:

    ” A common example [of coherence] is the laser, in which multiple light waves phase-lock to produce a powerful, coherent energy wave. In physiology, the term is similarly used to describe a state in which two or more of the body’s oscillatory systems, such as respiration and heart rhythm patterns, become synchronous and operate at the same frequency. This type of coherence is called entrainment.

    The term coherence is also used in mathematics to describe the ordered or constructive distribution of the power content within a single waveform. In this case, the more stable the frequency and shape of the waveform, the higher the coherence. A good example of a coherent wave is the sine wave. In the engineering and signal processing sciences, the term autocoherence is used to denote this type of coherence. When we speak of physiological coherence in this sense, we are referring to the degree of order and stability in the waveform that reflects the rhythmic activity of any given physiological system over a specified period of time. Interestingly, as shown below, we have found that in states in which there is a high degree of coherence within the HRV waveform, there also tends to be increased coherence between the rhythmic patterns produced by different physiological oscillatory systems (e.g. synchronization and entrainment between heart rhythms, respiratory rhythms and blood pressure oscillations).

    Physiological Coherence~ A state characterized by: High heart rhythm coherence (sine wave-like rhythmic pattern;) Increased parasympathetic activity; Increased entrainment and synchronization between physiological systems; Efficient and harmonious functioning of the cardiovascular, nervous, hormonal and immune systems.

    Our research has elucidated a clear and definable mode of physiological function that we call physiological coherence. This mode is associated with a sine wave-like pattern in the heart rhythms, a shift in autonomic balance towards increased parasympathetic activity, increased heart-brain synchronization and entrainment between diverse physiological systems. In this mode, the body’s systems function with a high degree of efficiency and harmony, and natural regenerative processes are facilitated. Although physiological coherence is a natural human state which can occur spontaneously, sustained episodes are generally rare. While specific rhythmic breathing methods may induce coherence and entrainment for brief periods, our research indicates that individuals can maintain extended periods of physiological coherence through actively self-generating positive emotions. Using a positive emotion to drive the coherent mode allows it to emerge naturally, and results in changes in the patterns of afferent information flowing from the heart to the respiratory and other brain centers. This, in turn, makes it easier to sustain the positive emotional state and coherent mode for longer periods, even during challenging situations.

    When the physiological coherence mode is driven by a positive emotional state, we call it psychophysiological coherence. This state is associated with sustained positive emotion and a high degree of mental and emotional stability. In states of psychophysiological coherence, there is increased synchronization and harmony between the cognitive, emotional and physiological systems, resulting in efficient and harmonious functioning of the whole. As we will see in subsequent sections, studies conducted across diverse populations have linked the capacity to self-generate and sustain psychophysiologically coherent states at will with numerous benefits. Observed outcomes include: reduced stress, anxiety and depression; decreased burnout and fatigue; enhanced immunity and hormonal balance; improved cognitive performance and enhanced learning; increased organizational effectiveness; and health improvements in a number of clinical populations.

    Psychophysiological Coherence~ A state associated with: Sustained positive emotion; High degree of mental and emotional stability; Constructive integration of the cognitive and emotional systems; Increased synchronization and harmony between the cognitive, emotional and physiological systems.

    In brief, the research studies summarized here show that different emotional states are associated with different physiological information patterns that are transmitted to the brain and throughout the body. When an individual is under stress or experiencing negative emotions such as frustration, anger and anxiety, heart rhythms become less coherent and more erratic, indicating less synchronization in the reciprocal action that ensues between the parasympathetic and sympathetic branches of the autonomic nervous system. This desynchronization in the ANS, if sustained, taxes the nervous system and bodily organs, impeding the efficient flow of information throughout the body. On the other hand, sustained positive emotions, such as appreciation, love or care, lead to increased heart rhythm coherence, greater synchronization between the activity of the two branches of the ANS and a shift in ANS balance toward increased parasympathetic activity. Further, we show that when the heart generates a coherent signal, it has a much greater impact on other biological oscillatory systems than when it is generating an incoherent or chaotic signal. When functioning in a coherent mode, the heart pulls other biological oscillators into synchronization with its rhythms, thus leading to entrainment of these systems. The entrainment mode is an example of a physiological state in which there is increased coherence between multiple oscillating systems and also within each system.” ~ Science of the Heart: Exploring the role of the Heart in Human Performance.

    These principles become more visible in the study of sound and music. If you have a room full of drums and you beat one, the others will vibrate to that same rhythm. A guitar string strummed will cause the same string on other guitars in the room to vibrate “synmpathetically.” Humans intuitively and unconsciously have that same “sympathetic” or “empathic” ability to resonate to an invisible frequency. Those who pooh pooh that might want to remember that at one time infra-red, ultra-violet and xrays were unknown because they weren’t visible. Just because something is invisible doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. We all resonate with or are repelled by vibes; the human instinctively knows that “sacred heart” frequency because it is our “umbilical cord” to the divine. Michael like to tickle that umblilicus to remind us what we might aspire to and are capable of: becoming conscious stewards of the world and its children. The doubters, cynics, detractors and haters can’t go there because they can’t resonate. Until they do. (Someday when they love/are loved enough to let it penetrate.)

    Scientific prayer apparently is generating the feeling that would be experienced if the condition longed for (the prayer) were already true, already manifest. It makes sense doesn’t it? Norman Cousins said something similar- positive emotions heal and laughter is the best medicine. The idea is to bathe one’s cells, tissues, molecules in the desired truth. One would think that cells that are constantly bathed in gratitude and joy would respond by creating more healthy cells while cells and tissues bathed in cynicism, greed and envy would invite disease. Molecules bathed in love would create loving, healthy cells, tissues. It’s all resonance– resonate to fear for a negative experience and resonate to love for another experience altogether. What you resonate to, you radiate. Imagine radiating love to a whole stadium of people while they all resonate to love as well and then radiate it out. Wasn’t it Jesus who said ‘whenever two or more of you are gathered together?’ When people are gathered in circle (reciprocal and like-minded agape love) the effect of the sum is greater than its parts. In a circle of 70,000 I can see why that immersion would feel like a nourishing baptism. Lots of people don’t even know they’re hungry; how could they understand “starving?”

    This is not an experience with a particular song, but an experience shortly after Michael’s death.

    One warm evening, in July 2009, sat on my balcony with my laptop, delving deeper into my discovery of Michael, stirred since his death. My eyes were pulled upwards to the brightest star shining down from the summer night sky – as though someone had called me – the star winked with a sparkle of light, love and happiness. I imagined looking straight into Michael’s eyes, for there was such a connection and experience of his presence.

    Every night, for weeks after, on going to bed, this star would wink at me. It seemed to be radiating love. I thought each night of Michael and his love and would say goodnight to his spirit: “Hi! and goodnight, dear soul” – it felt as though we had a direct soul to soul communication. I am not one to deify any human being; it’s just not my way, but Michael certainly had some special power and magic. Not just as a superstar, but also on a more subtle level. Now having read “innermichael” posts, I know I am not alone in such an experience.

    And what follows makes me tingle even more: Two years after his death, in 2011, on a whim, I researched the name of the “star.” It is called “Lyra” or “Vega,” and is the star that dominates the summer evening skies in the northern hemisphere. The “Lyre” belonging to Orpheus, the Greek God of Music, whose music and singing could charm the birds, fish and wild beasts, coax the trees and rocks into dance and divert the course of rivers. Orpheus met his death at the hands of those who could not hear his divine music.

    The other name for this star, “Vega,” meaning “eagle,” is regarded as a link between heaven and earth, the universal emblem of the gods of the sky. The cosmic eagle is a symbol of the highest aspirations of the spirit – Michael was always one to aim for the highest achievements.

    I found the whole experience completely mindblowing!

    Barbara, I like your statement,. Wasn’t it Jesus who said ‘whenever two or more of you are gathered together?’
    Does this explain why Michael stated many times that he feels lonely when he is not on stage? I believe he feels more at peace or happier when he is on stage with thousands of people which explains his ability to bring people together and experience that “baptism” that you described.

    Dear Barbara,

    I don’t recall which post you asked for songs we loved?

    well here is one and the video accompanying it is amazing:


    Love was taken from a young life
    And no one told her why
    Her direction has a dimelight
    From one more violent crime

    She innocently questioned why
    Why her father had to die
    She asked the men in blue
    How is it that you get to choose
    Who will live and who will die
    Did God say that you could decide?
    You saw he didn’t run
    And that my daddy had no gun

    In the middle of a village
    Way in a distant land
    Lies a poor boy with his broken toy
    Too young to understand

    He’s awaken, ground is shakin
    His father grabs his hand
    Screaming, crying, his wife’s dying
    Now he’s left to explain

    He innocently questioned why
    Why his mother had to die
    What did these soldiers come here for?
    If they’re for peace, why is there war?

    Did God say that they could decide
    Who will live and who will die?
    All my mama ever did
    Was try to take care of her kids

    We’re innocently standing by
    Watching people lose their lives
    It seems as if we have no voice
    It’s time for us to make a choice

    Only God could decide
    Who will live and who will die
    There’s nothing that can’t be done
    If we raise our voice as one

    They’ve gotta hear it from me
    They’ve gotta hear it from you
    They’ve gotta hear it from us
    We can’t take it
    We’ve already had enough

    They’ve gotta hear it from me
    They’ve gotta hear it from you
    They’ve gotta hear it from us

    We can’t take it
    We’ve already had enough

    They’ve gotta hear it from me
    They’ve gotta hear it from you
    They’ve gotta hear it from you baby

    We can’t take it
    We’ve already had enough

    Deep in my soul baby

    Deep in your soul and let God decide

    Deep in my soul

    It’s up to me and I’m still alive

    They’ve gotta hear it from us

    We can’t take it
    We’ve already had enough

    It’s going down baby
    Just let God decide,

    It’s going on baby
    Just let God decide

    Deep in my soul baby

    We’ve already had enough

    They’ve gotta hear it from me
    They’ve gotta hear it from you
    They’ve gotta hear it from us

    We can’t, we can’t
    We’ve already had enough



    How many people will have to die before we will take a stand
    How many children will have to cry, before we do all we can
    If sending your love is all you can give
    To help one live, mmm

    How many times can we turn our heads
    And pretend we cannot see
    Healing the wounds of our broken earth
    We are one global family
    Just sending your prayers
    Is something you feel
    Helping one heal
    What have I got that I can give
    (What have I got that I can give, tell me)
    What have I got that I can give, yeah, oh
    To love and to teach you
    To hold and to need you
    What more can I give (what more can I give, yeah)

    Now let’s rather lay down our fears and reach out and make a pact
    Show him the love that is in our hearts, let us bring salvation back
    Just sending your love has the power to heal
    So let’s all give

    What have I got that I can give
    (It’s not allot to give, just a little bit)
    What have I got that I can give
    (Everyone should be a part of it)
    To love and to teach you
    To hold and to need you
    What more can I give

    Say the words, I’ll lay me down for you
    Just call my name, I am your friend
    See then why do they keep teaching us
    Such hate and cruelty
    We should give over and over again

    What have I got that I can give
    (We should give over and over again)
    What have I got that I can give
    (Oh my God, oh my God)
    See, to love and to teach you
    To hold and to need you
    What more can I give

    What have I got that I can give (aah)
    What have I got that I can give
    (Give to you, give to you)
    See, to love and to teach you
    To hold and to need you
    What more can I give (Oooh)

    I think that Michael made that statement because when he was on stage he was having a numinous experience and that is why he felt “at home;” he was home there. ~B

    I would say “whoa” but these things don’t surprise me anymore. Thanks for sharing your story. After receiving hundreds like it, it’s hard to stay skeptical. A dozen people in the world telling me a story like this might raise more than eyebrows: imagination working overtime? Hysteria? Delusions? But so many saying the same thing… so many mature professional women of adulthood and middle age all over the world? Luminaries have been calling for the return of the feminine principle on the planet for decades and here come all these women whose hearts now have been cracked wide open by a skinny little moonwalker they hardly knew before he died. What’s up with that? That’s not sappy, gushing and mindless idol worship; that’s a spiritual revolution. ~B

    “Jesus bids us shine with a pure clear light,
    Like a little candle burning in the night,
    He looks down from heaven, to see us shine,
    You in your small corner and I in mine.”
    Does any remember singing this as a wee one? Perhaps not, it was first published in 1868. Showing my age here. My spiritual Nana taught me this though I realise she has substituted a line from the second verse.These words been on mind for days. What I am seeing is our little corners, marked with an arrow, pointing up or down as the case may be and we have started on a very resolute march towards each other. It could be 4 or 40, 400 or 4000 of us. It just does not matter, because when we meet there is going to be an explosion of love, never before felt on our beautiful Planet. Want to be there?

    Gertrude, if you are reading I would like to endorse your feelings about Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls. A while a go now, I had my usual 3 synchronicities, pertaining to the word “silver”. It began with a dream of Michael and myself sitting in field. He told me he was going with the “Silver Ones.” They ended with me, gob-smacked, really. Reading in Destiny of Souls of highly evolved “Silver Souls,” who look like something like a waterfall. They occasionally come to instuct other souls.Sorry I must have lent that book so I cannot tell you te page. Love you All, Lynaire

    Well now I have to say something the same to you Lynaire, as I’ve said to Robbie, which is: “that was no mere dream, that really was you and Michael and him telling you he was going to the Silver Ones. That happened, but I know you know that. Wow, is he a Silver One himself I wonder? The little corners and our resolute march toward each other you described was a breathtaking image.”

    Thank-you for the endorsement and your always poetic posts. thanks likewise to break-your-heart-beautiful Robbie M, and all who post here for the poetic, fascinating and stirring outpourings you give here.

    Oh Rev B I wonder if you get tired of us saying thank-you, THANK-YOU Rev B, so I’ll just say … THANK-YOU.
