Living Spaces: Populations and People

The last few weeks I have focused on finding ways to be out in nature in order to heal and recharge my energy field to maintain optimal health. For the next few weeks I’ll focus on where we live and whether or not it is the best place for our well being.

First, take a look at your own individual preferences. Jot down any places, cities, states, regions or countries that you have been to and experienced either a negative or a positive feeling. Let’s say you visited a desert in Arizona, or a jungle in central America, a crowded urban city, a small country town, etc… Write it down, and next to it, put your impressions of the place. Did you feel uplifted, expanded, joyful, cramped, scared, uneasy? Something else? Try to find at least three places you felt very positive about and three that you’ve felt negative about. If you have strong feelings about the place you are currently living, include it too.

Now, focus on your positive places and jot down a list of the qualities they have in common. Were there lots of people around? Or very few? Were the people friendly? What were the structures like? Was it densely built up or was there plenty of open, natural areas? Was the culture pleasing to you? Were you able to feel comfortable and natural in that setting? How did the energy feel? Anything else?

Make another list for your negative places. What did they have in common? Consider some of the questions that you did for the positive list. In this manner you should begin to see a pattern of what your preferences are.

There are important reasons for your preferences and these reasons are dependent upon factors such as your own upbringing, culture, and personal boundaries.

The boundaries I’m speaking of are energetic ones and they vary with culture, country and even area of a country. You may have experienced, or heard about travelers to different countries who found their level of comfort breached when people stepped too close to them to communicate, or perhaps backed away from them. These sometimes subtle gestures could be disconcerting and cause a person to feel ill at ease. Depending on what auric levels you have developed, you will prefer these same levels in others and find yourself gravitating to such people, deeming yourself more comfortable with them.

These differences are cultural, as in the above example, but can also be dependent on your upbringing as well. Did your family communicate easily? Or did you keep to yourselves?

Some levels of our aura are more developed than other levels. For example, if our third and fifth level is the most developed, we will seek out others with the same development. They are the ones you feel most at ease with because when we communicate with others, we intermingle our auric fields using our most developed parts.

Also, some people keep their auras tight and to themselves, while others walk in a more expanded state and don’t mind intermingling their energies with others. It’s been found that people living in crowded cities tend to keep their auras small and those that live in more open areas tend to expand. It seems that people adjust their auric dimensions according to the space they have. If your list showed a preference for open country, then you most likely enjoy an expanded energy body.

So what is the appeal of a big city? Many of us enjoy all the distractions and interactions a city has to offer. The population density alone can cause a big city to give off very high energy, even to the point of creating energy vortices. People unconsciously gravitate to cities to experience this exciting energy which causes these places to sometimes become great centers of learning.

On the down side, big cities also accumulate vast quantities of negative energies, sometimes called DOR (Dead Orgone Energy). DOR is a term coined by Wilhelm Reich. In large cities, DOR permeates everything and everyone as well as planting itself deep into the ground beneath. If a person does not leave the city regularly to maintain their health, DOR can be harmful and sometimes fatal, causing illness to form in the weakest parts of the body and energy field.

Besides DOR, there is also the increased environmental pollution that affects the air quality in big cities. These factors can wear down your immune system and especially attack the health of your brain.

So now that you have found your preferences for the kind of places and people you prefer, how does it compare with where you are living now? Are you comfortable where you are? Could you be more fulfilled somewhere else?

Next week we’ll examine the possibility of making a move somewhere and what need that may or may not fill for you.
