There was a time when you knew perfect health. Before you incarnated into this life you were given a transcendent view of how your life would be. This is why your soul chose to incarnate during this transformational time in the earth’s history. In this place you were surrounded by nothing but loving support for your highest self. You were taken care of in every way and you radiated light and love to the world because of this.

The definition of transcendent is beyond or above the range of normal physical human experience; surpassing the ordinary; exceptional; more of God, existing apart from and not subject to the limitations of the physical universe.

I was personally able to realize internally that transcendent health is possible through my meditation practice which led me through a process of visualizing all lower vibrations dissolving by dwelling on the transcendent light at the center of all life. I was then led to a Vedic master who showed me a formula to help us reach the highest state of health as human beings. The teachings were simple:

Transcendent Health is a healthy, strong, flexible and joyful body

and a self-excited, self-healing, honest and committed mind.

Imagine your body at it’s strongest and healthiest.

Imagine a clear, focused, decisive and energized mind.


These qualities lay the foundation for transcendent health. Transcendent health is your highest state of health. This is different for each and every person, but the same process brings us there.

With these practices in place, the foundation is set for the greatest health of your life. This is not a magic formula, rather, it is a set of guidelines for a different way to journey through life, a way where health is FIRST, and all else falls into place from here. This is not the kind of health that comes from pills or surgery. This is health that radiates from your connection to the divine light within.


Your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God.”
1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Take a moment to actually think of your body as a temple of the Holy Spirit. Just in case you are unfamiliar with the Holy Spirit, it is one of my favorite topics 🙂 So I will share what I know.

The Holy Spirit existed since the beginning of time, before the Earth came into form. The energy of the Holy Spirit  manifests in different words and forms in all the major religions of the world today. “Spiritus” in Latin means “breath.”  The word is used to describe an invisible feminine force that moves across the waters of God’s being and calls all creation into existence. Jesus described the relationship between the Holy Spirit and God with such simple clarity and divine wisdom.  He was asked what password would be used so that disciples could recognize each other when apart from him and he said, “a movement and a rest”

The Holy Spirit is movement; God is rest. The Holy Spirit is what moves through us. It is what inspires us to get up and volunteer to help those who are in need. The Holy Spirit can move through us and inspire us to speak up for ourselves. Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have Dream’ speech is a beautiful example of words spoken through the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is a feminine force known by many names in the Bible: the Glory of God, Wisdom, the voice in the wilderness, the noise of many waters, the sound in the silence, the Word of God, the Amen, the true and faithful witness of creation and the law.  In all those names, the Holy Spirit manifests as a movement.

In Hinduism, this sacred feminine force is known as Shakti, in Buddhism; Mindfulness, and in Islam, the Angel Gabriel. It is in this way that the Holy Spirit is with all members of the human race. She guides us through different names, but always in the same loving and compassionate way. Through opening our hearts and minds to seeing the unity in all of God’s people we can connect with the essence of the Christ Mind and the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is a loving benevolent force that works through each person on this planet. Whether you are Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, or Muslim or believe in God at all, you have most likely encountered the power of the Holy Spirit in your life. The power of the Holy Spirit is not something we can control, rather, it is something that arises spontaneously and releases into our lives a feeling of compassion, peace or love for another. When the Holy Spirit comes through us it is always a warm feeling. An example is the pull you feel to help children or women who are suffering through poverty or discrimination or other unethical practices in other countries or in your own backyard. You are moved from a power outside of yourself, to reach out and help. There is nothing you will gain, instead it is the power of a compassionate and loving force that wells up within you and guides you to action. This is the release of the Holy Spirit in your life.

As we pay more and more attention to the Holy Spirit in our lives, she shows herself more and more to us. Just like with any spiritual force, regular attention, prayer and quiet time giving gratitude for these moments allow you to become more and more aware of when she does appear. Surrender to the Holy Spirit is one of the first steps in miracle work and guides us into higher states of physical, mental and emotional health. A Course in Miracles is a sacred text that teaches about the Holy Spirit and how it moves through our lives. It teaches that our perception of our world is not real, because it is seen through our body, which holds illusions. The illusions that other people are ‘wrong’, ‘bad’ and deserving of attack are the thoughts and actions that cause us to separate from God’s truth that only love is real.

The opposite of seeing through the body’s eyes is seeing through Christ’s eyes, which holds a vision of strength, not weakness; unity, not separation and love; not fear. The opposite of hearing through the ears is hearing through the Holy Spirit, whose messages are always loving release, hope, faith and trust.

Now imagine your body as a temple of the Holy Spirit. Close your eyes and visualize this movement of God’s light radiating from within you. This movement of light is eternal, as you keep your and mind, body vibrating high, the Holy Spirit will sustain you.

Living in this awareness is the foundation of transcendent health. A healthy body moves with love, hope, faith and trust. It takes in nutritious food, pure water and fresh air. A healthy body also moves with life. Walking, jumping, dancing, swimming, biking, boxing, running, gardening, hopping, stretching, cooking, cleaning, and active living are all components of healthy activity for the body. Do those activities in service to the light within you. Move in ways that light you up. Seek the light in all movement and you will always stay inspired.


“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.” 

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Your body can begin where it is and move into greater and greater states of strength. A strong body is one that has walked past fear and learned the power and joy that come from regular healthy practices.

Weakness is an illusion of the human mind. This concept is hard to accept, because as humans, our entire basis for reality lives in the perceptions of our body. Therefore, when we feel weak, we affirm this feeling, and see it in all of the people, places and things around us. 

Jesus walked this earth to teach us that strength comes from God’s love within us. Even when he was going through the most horrific experience of his life, his crucifixion, he did not dwell on his weakness in the moment, nor did he dwell on the weakness of those around him that were leading him to his death. Instead, he said,

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing”

Luke 23:24

In our weakest human moments, we learn that true strength comes from holding love and forgiveness for even those that persecute us the most.  

The foundation of strength is forgiveness. Transcendent forgiveness stems from a belief that no matter what happens to us, there is a force greater than us guiding us that remains as the center of strength in our lives. From this place, we can build strength in our bodies through movement and in our minds through returning our thoughts, words and actions to love. This is the essence of true strength.


My child, I know you’re not a child, But I still see you running wild,
Between those flowering trees, Your sparkling dreams, your silver laugh
Your wishes to the stars above, Are just my memories.
And in your eyes the ocean, And in your eyes the sea
The waters frozen over, With your longing to be free.
Yesterday you’d awoken, To a world incredibly old.
This is the age you are broken or turned into gold.
You had to kill this child, I know, To break the arrows and the bow
To shed your skin and change, The trees are flowering no more
There’s blood upon the tiles floor, This place is dark and strange.
I see you standing in the storm, Holding the curse of youth
Each of you with your story, Each of you with your truth.
Some words will never be spoken, Some stories will never be told.
This is the age you are broken or turned into gold.
I didn’t say the world was good, I hoped by now you understood
Why I could never lie, I didn’t promise you a thing….

Don’t ask my wintervoice for spring, Just spread your wings and fly.
Though in the hidden garden, Down by the green green lane
The plant of love grows next to, The tree of hate and pain.
So take my tears as a token, They’ll keep you warm in the cold.
This is the age you are broken, Or turned into gold.
You’ve lived too long among us, To leave without a trace
You’ve lived too short to understand, A thing about this place.
Some of you just sit there smoking, And some are already sold.
This is the age you are broken or turned into gold.
This is the age you are broken or turned into gold.”

Antonia Michaelis, The Storyteller

Flexibility is a mindset. Gold in it’s essential form is fluid, like water, it then hardens into what we experience as humans through it’s emergence out of the of the earth. Being flexible within our minds is a lifetimes long journey, and it is only when we think we are done that the stretching is needed the most.

Flexibility in the body creates a flexible mind. As you practice yoga, or other exercises that bring deep stretching and flexibility, you begin to stretch yourself physically, mentally and emotionally. As you sit in the stillness that flexibility practices bring, you will find your mind clearer and a deeper awareness of your emotions. It is from this place of inner and outer flexibility that any obstacle or challenge can be overcome with grace. Flexibility of the mind requires innocence. The best way to observe innocence in it’s purest form is through the actions of a small child. Children begin in this world seeing only love. Although they are small and helpless, the strength of a child lies in their perception of love and total innocence.

When you choose to see only love, and view all humans as perfect in their essence, you begin to reconnect with the flexibility of innocence. From this place of total love, rigidity cannot exist. The root of our inflexible nature lies in the perception that there is a force other than love and innocence operating in our lives.

When you choose to think and act only from a place of a belief in the innocence of all beings, love will automatically follow.

You begin to walk in peace when you travel innocently along the way love shows you. To be transcendently flexible is to see all as love or a call for love. When you surrender your life to love and the belief of the innocence of yourself and all of God’s beings, you are protected from fear and rigidity. As you perceive the world from a place of love, your awareness of the truth that only love exists releases you from the illusion that any person, place or thing can harm you. From this place, what once seemed harmful is happily returned to love.

From this place of total love and innocence comes the realization that nothing without meaning exists. Every piece of dust is a precious piece of love.

Recognition of meaninglessness arouses rigidity because it separates us from God’s reality. When you perceive any person, place or thing as meaningless, you lose connection to the truth.

If you believe in anything as meaningless, it causes rigid energy patterns within you. When you remember that everything is a precious creation of love, you flow like water.

Flexibility of the mind lies in belief in the innocence of all beings. As you see the innocence, love and divine meaning in all, life becomes more loving and meaningful.


“If we were talking to you on your first day here, we would say, Welcome to planet Earth.
There is nothing that you cannot be or do or have. And your work here – your lifetime career – is to seek joy. As you think thoughts that feel good to you, you will be in harmony with who-you-really-are. And in doing so, you will utilize your profound freedom. Seek joy first, and all of the growth that you could ever imagine will come joyously and abundantly unto you.”

– Abraham

Joy feels good. Healthy joys feel the best. Seek environments, people and situations that inspire pure joy in your mind. There is deep joy to be found in unity with your body. Even if you are currently unhealthy, out of shape or disconnected from your body, you can begin to experience joy right now by engaging with your body physically in a way that feels good. 

Regular movement inspires joy. A regular exercise practice will raise your endorphins and bring joy into your life no matter who you are or what state of health you are in. Although there is often temporary discomfort in any exercise, the hormones that release from your muscles and flood your mind bring about spontaneous joy. And as you watch your body move into deeper union with this joy, transformation begins.

Move in the ways that bring joy to your every moment. Revel in the senses of your body, fall in love with yourself, every square inch… This is the path to joy in your body.


“I sat down and tried to rest. I could not; though I had been on foot all day, I could not now repose an instant; I was too much excited. A phase of my life was closing tonight, a new one opening tomorrow: impossible to slumber in the interval; I must watch feverishly while the change was being accomplished.”

Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

In this moment, and in every moment after this one eternally, you have all that you need to be living in pure excitement of simply being alive. Everything is of the same essential nature. Your moods, your cells, your desk, your personal belongings, your home all vibrate at the same frequency. Excitement is similar to joy, the highest frequency to experience. An excited mind is a healthy mind. Pledge to surround yourself with things that excite you and bring you joy. Allow yourself to let go of all of those things that no longer bring you joy.

To be alive is an exciting experience. Welcome excitement when it comes unexpectedly and create a daily practice to foster excitement in your mind.  A daily practice that always gets me excited is to go outside and find a place in which I am completely surrounded by nature. I go out to the beach, hike up to the highest mountain, or go deep into the forest. Being deep in nature, I can feel excitement pulsing through the air, the waves, the trees and the earth herself. As I breathe nature into my body, I feel Mother Earth pulsating with excitement about life.

Another practice that requires more work is getting excited daily about the tasks ahead of you. When I worked as a traveling salesperson, selling casino packages door to door, the leader of the organization would lead a motivational group every morning. Here, dressed in his best suit, he would remind us of what was possible when we followed the sales formula that he had created. 

He always began with a recount of his success and the success we had as a group. Then he reviewed the formula for the day. This formula included talking with as many people as possible in one day (about 100) and trusting that out of these 100 people at least 10 would decide YES! This simple motivational speech always got me excited and I give myself the same pep talk before I begin big projects. I reflect on the success I have had on a project in the past, then I review my formula for completing the project successfully. I often bring in music to get me pumped up and excited and confident that I can do anything I set my mind to!


“As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation — either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

The greatest power you have, is the power to heal yourself. We are here to heal. Be it illness, dis-ease, physical, verbal or emotional abuse, addiction, heartache, stress and anxiety, depression or loss; at every stage of life there is a struggle that we must face and a recovery period where we have to reestablish our identity again. The process of healing begins with transcendent compassion for ourselves. By practicing transcendent compassion, we can anticipate that we will need time and nurturing so that our recovery process serves our evolution into our highest selves. The more quickly we admit to ourselves we are recovering from something, the more quickly we can begin to allow the healing to begin.

As long as we remember this each and every day, we can look at every experience that life brings us as an opportunity to heal. Healing from this perspective means simply coming into deeper union with our Creator and Creatress, the One that is All, and infinite existence. 

This is the home of all true healing, and through surrendering everyday in this space, we can open to greater and greater levels of health than we ever thought possible. Healing can be yoga, meditation, massage, energy healing or counseling. Healing can also be swimming in the ocean, hiking through the forest, or spending time in your garden. Anytime that your mind lets go of the stories that are normally running through it comes into unity with relaxation, peace, and a feeling of wellbeing – you are healing.

Unity is the mindset of healing. To heal is to become whole, to unite with all that is and perceive it with love. Unity is a mind in total union with God; surrendering to the highest will and allowing it to lead our lives. Jesus’s essential teachings always spoke of total unity and love for all of the human race. At the end of his life, his wish was that,
”that they may all be one; even as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be in Us.” (John 17:21)


“As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation — either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

To align our mind with integrity is perhaps the greatest gift we can give to ourselves and others. Integrity breeds health, and impeccable cellular function; all is related. Search your life for any aspect that is out of integrity and train your mind to be your greatest asset. The definition of integrity is:
“The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness. The state of being whole and undivided.”
 If you make a mistake and do it again; acknowledge this mistake, make a new plan of action, let go of the mistake and start anew. With a child-like mind, let go of your mistakes and the mistakes of others and live in a present moment with your focus on living from a place of integrity with a heart full of unconditional love.

Health is truth. When absolute truth exists in our minds, absolute truth exists in our bodies and from this place, all is always well. Absolute truth from the perspective of transcendent health is that only love is real. Let go of any seeming mistakes of your own or of others and focus honestly only on the light, the lessons learned and the love. As you bring this kind of radical honestly into your life you align with your highest Self, the seat of transcendent health.

To live in alignment with truth is to honor the divine within. Your truth is a knowing that you hold deep within. Your truth makes you feel empowered. My son builds Legos all day. He has learned about ‘Master Builders’. He identifies as a ‘Master Builder’. If you ask him, ‘Are you a Master Builder?’ he will affirm with conviction, ‘Yes!’. When you can affirm a strong, Yes!, you are in alignment with your truth. Anytime you feel restricted, insecure or afraid to reveal your “real” feelings you are disconnected from your truth.

To try something new that is more aligned with your deepest truth, go to a quiet place out in the arms of Mother Earth with a journal and writing utensil. Tune into the place deep within you that always knows what to do. This place is not in your head, but deep in your solar plexus; the home of your divine will. Ask yourself the questions,

‘What do I know for sure that makes me feel alive?’
‘What is true for me?’
‘What do I want to be true for me?’

After each question pause and give yourself time to write down in your journal whatever comes to mind. When you tune into your truth it will feel unlimited, you will feel inspired and alive. Truth wants to be expressed and allowed to flow freely. When you get in touch with your truth you often get the feeling that you want to ‘sing it from the mountaintops’. This feeling is always a sign you are in deep alignment with your truth.

Rooting deeply into truth will always require change. Once you know what is true for you, it always leads to what you want to be true for you. New structures needs to be created in the physical world to support what is true within. It is a time of planning and a time of being with the opposites. Sometimes seeing the truth clearly is difficult because it can require change, but it the rewards of staying aligned with the truth are the foundation of transcendent health.


“Freedom is not the absence of commitments, but the ability to choose – and commit myself to 
what is best for me.”

Paulo Coelho, The Zahir

To commit means to never give up. When you commit to your own health, you promise yourself you will never give up. No matter how hard it gets. Even if others tell you there is no way you will get stronger, recover, or be healthy again. They are wrong. According to the master healers of antiquity, the light is the cure. When you commit to healing your body through the light, you transcend what humans operating in the 3D healthcare system matrix understand as ‘health’.

Your body is a holy temple, your mind is a vessel for enlightenment.
Health is a gift from Spirit. Humans don’t have a solid understanding of spiritual healing, so in general, they tend to dismiss it’s power. Transcendent health at its core, is a deeply spiritual journey.

Commit to transcendent health practices and if you fall, get back up and recommit, there is nothing more precious than your health.

“Faith is the realization of what is hoped for and evidence of things not seen” Hebrews 11:1.

Faith is not something that you come to through your intellect, or through your senses, but is the transcendent truth of God. As human beings, faith is the ultimate gift of the Holy Spirit, one that allows us to rise above our nature and can only come from God through the grace of the Holy Spirit. We must practice strength in God, unity, love, and hope in order to fully witness to the power of faith in our lives.

“Give us this day our daily bread” is a common Catholic prayer grounded in the principles of trust. Praying to God for our daily bread connects us the deep truths of our ancestors. They believed and knew that God through the Holy Spirit and manifest as Mother Earth, not man, provides all sustenance on this planet.

Providence is another beautiful way to understand trust. Mother Teresa’s entire ministry was guided by the force of divine providence. When she was questioned as to how she was going to continue caring for the poor that she had taken in in Calcutta, when money had run out, she replied, I need only divine providence. She trusted that it was God who called her to her mission and her sisters had to trust everyday in Him to provide them with all they needed to answer His call. It can be hard, if not impossible to trust someone or something without practicing strength, love, unity, hope and faith. Trust is a divine gift for those who have surrendered their lives to God’s will and to the loving guidance of the Holy Spirit.
