I remember a mentor once telling me to look around at the people I was spending time with – because that is where I would be in five years time.
I often wondered at the logic behind this. I mean – I have never wanted to be a ‘snob’ - and I believe that everyone has value – so why would I stay away from one person because they did not make a lot of money, or they were not ‘brainiacs’!But there is a spiritual principle that clearly supports my mentor’s advice.
It’s about our morphic field.
A morphic field is the field of energy that radiates from us and surrounds us. (It is much more complicated than this but this is simplified and according to Mandie)
Our body is merely the place where our spirit has been planted and functions from in this earthly world. And our spirit is infinite – and does not end where our body ends. We really are much bigger that we could ever imagine!
Can this morphic field be measured? Yes - scientists can measure the energy we give off. Can it be seen? By some - yes. Just as there are those in our world who can sense things we cannot – we also hear of those who can see our ‘aura’. Sometime when we are in a truly grounded state – connected to source – we too can see the auras of those around us.
Auras are a visual representations of the energy that is not contained within our bodies. This is where we transfer information to each other without touch or speech. (Read more about this in my last blog - The Connecting Tree)
In our everyday language we speak of the ‘vibes’ we get from others. These vibrations and the information in those vibrational frequencies are held in our morphic field.
The energy in that field says a lot about who we are, where we are going and what we believe and expect for the future. You could say that our morphic field carries in it the most powerful parts of who we are that just cannot be contained by several layers of skin!
When we are close to another person, animal, plant – or any thing for that matter, we are in their morphic field – and they are in ours as well. This is where a transfer of information between two masses of energy begin. We can absorb energy from another – and they can also absorb from us.
Rupert Sheldrake, a biologist and author writes about this transfer of information and the continuing connection that occurs in several of his scientific papers and books including The Sense of Being Stared At, And Other Aspects of the Extended Mind and Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home, And Other Unexplained Powers of Animals.
His research dating back to the 1980’s is not new – but many of us have failed to show an interest in these magical secrets of our human existence.
More and more, I am beginning to put the pieces together. The wisdom of my mentor's words now begin to make sense. He encouraged me to spend a vast amount of my time with people who had achieved the things I aspired to achieve, to hang around with my ‘heros’. He may not have understood anything about morphic fields – but he did know the principle that was the result of the ‘old world wisdom’ that has existed since the beginning of time.
This changes the way I look at everything. It makes me look deeply at who I am, and what I am about. And when I acknowledge the greatness in myself – I know that I can mentor others who do not yet have my understandings.
But just as important – in order to grow and become the person I aspire to be – I must find those whom I aspire to be like and ensure that I spend time in their morphic fields as well!
Knowing this, I wonder where I shall be in 5 years time?
