When you hold that strand of pearls once worn by your grandmother, do you sometimes imagine you can smell her perfume, a subtle lingering impression of the Blue Grass she kept on her dresser?
When you sit in that chair you bought in that antique store so many years ago, do you sometimes sense the places that chair lived before: in other living rooms, with other families?
When you walk past that historical home and peek in the windows, do you sometimes feel you can sense the entire household, right down to the children playing in the living room, the parents reading in the parlor, the toys sprawled in joyous array on the floor?
We tend to think that we can only ready other people, or animals, or at the very least, other living things.
But objects hold energy. So do buildings. So do places.
In fact, everything: living or non living, holds its own energy.
In this article, we’ll look at how you can learn to sense the energy of objects and places in your world, and to receive the information that is there.
In future teachings, we’ll look at how to look at buildings, places, even environments and regions.
Later still, we’ll look at things that aren’t physical form or matter.
It is all available to you!
With practice, you can sense everything that you can recognize, living or non living, matter or beyond matter. The approach is the same.
It’s all about becoming conscious.
Everything is a Universe
The first thing to understand is that everything is a Universe of energy, and everything is One.
A stone is a Universe of stone energy.
You are a Universe of “you” energy.
A house is a Universe of house energy.
A city is a Universe of city energy.
And so on, from small to big.
Within each Universe, we find all the energy inherent in the object, place, person that reflects the beingness of that object, place or person.
We understand the past of that Universe.
We can see the future.
We understand all emotional content.
We understand the different energy levesl from other Divines.
We “get” this all at once, when we tune into the Universe of an object, place or person.
Our Oneness allows connection
The true nature of our reality: our Oneness, is what allows us to connect or tune in this way. We are all souls, part of collective Soul. We are all one, part of One.
This way of being—that we are a part of everything while also being everything at the time— means it’s very easy for us to tune into other objects, places, people.
In essence, we can tune into something, because we are also that something.
Thus, in order to sense a stone intuitively, you simply become the stone. In order to read a place, you become the place. In order to know a person, you become the person.
You don’t do this permanently—you always return to your own particular Universe or container of your self. But you learn how to simply inhabit, become or be whatever it is you’d like to look into.
Your spirit or soul self merges with the spirit or soul or energy self of the object or place, if only for a short moment. But in that short millisecond of sharing space, of inhabiting the same Oneness, you immediately KNOW all there is to know about that object, place.
Of course, it works with people, animals, guides and so much more. We’re just working on objects and places, right now.
One of the ways we learn to sense objects, is by inhabiting the vibration they are existing in. We learn to match their vibration.
Of course, it’s very hard to put the HOW of this into words. As humans, we are new to this work, and we don’t have easy ways of describing how this works with language.
But the core idea is this: if you want to understand a stone, where it has come from, how it feels, what it would like you to know… simply become the stone. In your human form, simply match yourself in all the ways you can, to the stone’s vibration.
What I have found in my own practice of vibration matching is this:
• Usually, stone vibration is quite still and solid. It’s very dense.
• Usually, crystal vibration is quite busy, buzzy, electric. It’s dense too, but in a charged, buzzy way.
• Usually, wood vibration is very mellow; it’s lively without being irritating or pushy.
• Usually, animal vibration is very lively: there’s a lot of heat and feeling.
• Usually, machinery vibration is very cold, with a sense of death or separation.
• Usually, computer vibration is super buzzy, yet also with a coldness or irritation.
Simply begin to sense and sort this vibration, until you can easily feel and recognize what “stone” feels like, vs “computer” vs “dog.”
And, then begin to practice matching your own vibration.
Simply go within, and become the object you are reading. Allow your soul self to simply inhabit this Universe or container for a moment.
You’re still coming back to your human form. You’re not staying there very long.
But one moment as a piece of wood, for example, and you will understand all there is to know about it: where it has been, what it has seen, the energies around it.
Sensing the energy of objects
Let’s go back to the idea of sensing the energy of objects.
The key would be to step aside, and allow your spirit or soul self to sense and match the vibration or frequency of that object, and to become that object.
Let’s say you want to sense the energy of your grandmother’s string of pearls.
You might hold the pearls in your hand, and simply enter into Divine space: you might enter into that psychic sweet spot where you are can most easily access visual information, language, symbolism, emotion, future thinking and so forth.
Go into that sweet spot, not too far in the ethers, not too close to earth.
And then, simply sense the energy of the pearls. As you sense this vibrational quality, begin to match in with your own body.
Sink into a place where you are one with the pearls.
Now, go a step further, and simply as to become the pearls. You may feel a transition in your body, such as your chest expanding, or skin tingling, as this happens.
Your body will stay where it is! Your spirit will experience the shift.
It is very subtle.
If you do not have much practice with meditation and spiritual intuition, you may find it hard to find this sweet spot at first. The more you practice, the easier you will be able to go there instantaneously, simply upon the breath.
As you become the pearls, you will begin to see and sense and hear from the pearls point of view.
You may find yourself going into the pearl’s memory: seeing or sensing places the pearls have been: in a house, in a drawer, around a neck.
You may find yourself going into the pearl’s energy, which we might call emotions: you might sense sticky, happy, clear, loving, sentimental energy, that show the relationship of your Grandmother, as she was in relationship to the pearls.
You may find yourself going into the pearl’s past: in the ocean, forming in the oyster, the salt and brine of the sea.
You may find yourself attaching to a memory of your own, in which some message, vision or understanding presents itself: a way for you to relate an event in your own life, to the pearls.
You may find your grandmother arrives in your consciousness, and has a message or vision for you.
Stay in. Explore. Allow what arrives to arrive.
When you are complete, call your own energy back into your own body. Come back to this reality. Write down what has been revealed to you.
You may be surprised and even shocked by how much you receive, when you do this practice of becoming the object.
Practice on other objects, and see what arrives.
