Continuing on with blog articles that aid in raising your vibration, the next subject is liver & gall bladder cleansing.

The techniques listed here used to be used by Western medical practitioners in the past. Not only are they very beneficial in a great many ways, but they are also very cheap and, after some practice, are easy to perform too. The excuses for not teaching them in the modern medical profession range from unfounded claims that they are harmful in some way, to simply not having enough space in the Merck manual (considered the like the bible for Western doctors) to print them! Thankfully many practitioners are starting to realise the benefits of these practices and are bringing them back.

Rather than list all the benefits these techniques have on the physical body (which are already presented in the articles I have provided links for below), instead I will write more about the spiritual relations, my personal experiences, as well as the reciprocal effect these practices have on the energetic Self.

Please use your common sense when following these practices. They are much safer than taking drugs and having operations, but I cannot know what state your health is in and obviously I am not a doctor so please seek help if you are unsure 😉

The Gall Bladder Meridian & Parasites

You may have noticed that many healers often talk a lot about the gall bladder meridian and it’s relationship to energetic parasites. Lisa Renee has a good article on SPE types of parasite/implant on this subject here. It seems that many parasites like to enter and travel along the gall bladder meridian to “infect” various areas that the meridian connects to.

A common place they enter is the top of the back of the neck and where the back of the neck connects with the skull. From there the common areas of the energy body, and in turn, the physical body that are affected are: the sides of the skull & brain (often in the form of head aches/migraines, especially the temple areas), the upper portions of the shoulder girdle & behind the shoulder blades (especially on the right side), the liver/gall bladder area, genitals, sacrum, knees and feet.

Of course it is not just parasites that affect this meridian. Other energetic blockages do too, which include trapped emotions/judgements etc. And because the physical and energetic bodies are reciprocally related, heavy metals, toxins from metabolism and foods that we eat/breathe in etc have an impact too. This in turn creates a more suitable environment for viruses, bacteria and fungi and their energetic parasitic counterparts. Obviously because the liver is the main detoxifying organ of the body you can see why this particular meridian can be so affected in modern society.

The gall bladder meridian picture below can give you a good idea of the areas that can be affected.

The Gall Bladder Meridian & Awakening

If you look at the number of acupuncture points around the side of the head, you can see how much this meridian affects the brain. You may also notice how many of these points are also acupressure points as well as points that are touched when performing Access Bars & Distance Bars (hence why regular Bars treatments are good for the awakening process).

Teachings by Oneness University and various enlightened beings, channelled or otherwise, point out that the physical brain changes a lot as one travels further along the path of awakening. They say that in general the brain becomes less active/”fires” fewer signals and that remaining individual signals start to become higher in frequency. This mirrors studies on meditation too.

The parts of the temporal/parietal areas of the brain (the sides of the brain near the ear) that in general connect and control information between the more primitive areas of the brain and the “higher” brain (where deeksha is generally focussed on), are some of the main areas that decrease in activity as one awakens more. Thus you can see that clearing the gall bladder meridian can greatly aid in awakening. You can find much on this subject in the following book “Awakening into Oneness: Deeksha and the Evolution of Consciousness” by Arjuna Ardagh. You can also find reports on many studies of the brain relating to meditation by doing a quick internet search – transcendental meditation being the most studied of meditation techniques.

The liver and gall bladder are organs that greatly affect this meridian as a whole. When you understand that physical and energetic parasites and energetic blockages occur at the same time and that these promote blockages in other energy systems of the body too, then you can appreciate how useful cleansing and aiding the full functionality of the liver and gall bladder can be, not only for resolving physical issues but also for awakening.

Most Don’t Realise That They Have Liver/Gall Bladder Dis-Ease

As a great many people are realising, doctors in the Western world often are not concerned unless there are obvious or serious signs & symptoms relating to a particular complaint. Moreover, even when there are signs & symptoms present, things can often be missed simply because the established medical profession has no understanding of the emotional/mental/energetic relationship to the physical body, that the figures they test for fall under pre-established “norms”, or simply that the detection methods don’t pick up on anything. Often too, due to guidelines, doctors simply don’t have the time ask all the questions and perform all the tests required, and thus symptomatic relief is given instead. On top of this the sufferers themselves are all too often only interested in symptomatic relief rather than sorting out the true causes to dis-ease (such as the emotional and mental causes).

This was particularly evident when I used to work as an osteopath. I would often pick up on the emotions, energetic sluggishness, or energetic blocks relating to the gall bladder and/or liver. Obviously I could not tell many patients, or record such findings on referral letters to doctors, as it would have been disregarded. Even when I would highlight the common pain referral patterns, change in stool consistency, reduced digestion ability of fats, flatulence increase, pain on direct palpation of the gall bladder etc etc often nothing would be done by the patient or those I referred the patient to.

It is worth mentioning here that ultrasound which is commonly used in gall bladder (and kidney) investigations, often does not pick up any problems such as stones, even if the practitioner is quite experienced at it. Even x-rays do not always show stones. There are many stories I have heard of people having very obvious signs of gall bladder stones, where a great many of them were found either from using the methods I have highlighted below, or during surgery to remove the gall bladder itself… yet nothing was found using ultrasound or x-ray investigations!

It is also worth mentioning that from a lot of natropathic perspectives, the vast majority of people have liver and gall bladder stones, mostly in the form of cholesterol balls. So it is recommended to have regular cleanses to clean them out and keep the liver and gall bladder functioning efficiently.

The liver performs a great many functions, so there are many bodily systems that it affects directly and indirectly. This means that there is a large variety of signs & symptoms that can show up if the liver & gall bladder are not functioning efficiently. I will not list all the physical ones here as that is a whole article in itself – again a simple internet search is all that’s needed. Often these signs & symptoms may be quite subtle or not present at all, even if there is quite a lot of dis-ease going on physically or energetically.

Paying Attention to the Emotions

If you are on the awakening path, paying attention to the subtle things is needed in order to continue to shift that which limits you. As you may already be aware of, emotions are a response to the beliefs of the mind/ego whether they be conscious or not. Thus paying attention to the emotions in any situation can highlight what judgements/conclusions/beliefs you have within you.

Each organ operates at a different vibratory rate, or if you like frequency. Likewise each emotion has a different frequency. Therefore certain organs are affected by certain emotions more than others. Paying attention to these emotions can highlight what organs may be affected and vice versa.

There are many books out there that highlight the mental and emotional relationships to certain diseases, such as those written by Doreen Virtue. I would say after reading many of them, that they are great at giving you the gist, and may be very useful in helping a great many people. However, dis-ease causes can be very individual, much like the fact that labelled conditions never affect everyone in EXACTLY the same way!

With this in mind, the liver and gall bladder are often affected by the emotions of anger, frustration, irritation and jealousy and the beliefs/judgements that cause those emotions. Thus if you often have those emotions come up for you, it could suggest that your liver and gall bladder could be working more efficiently.

During and after the cleansing process, obviously these are the emotions that often come to the surface as the energy body starts to clear in response. If you align/agree with these emotions, or resist/react/fight them, then the healing process will take longer. The trick is to allow the emotions and related thoughts to be there rather than ignore or suppress them. As you observe them, they will simply dissolve in the light of your consciousness. Otherwise a good healer can help.

The liver and gall bladder obviously are affected by the physical world too. As the liver is the main detoxifying organ in the body, eliminating fumes, food additives, pesticides, drugs, alcohol, caffeine etc can greatly improve its function as well as the functioning of all other organs due to the decrease in toxicity.

For those wishing to lose body fat, know that a poorly functioning liver encourages fat cell production, as fat is one of the methods employed by the body to store toxins away from the vital organs. Thus many people lose body fat simply by doing thorough detoxes – I mean that in terms of mental, emotional as well as physical detoxing. Likewise if the liver and kidneys cannot keep up with releasing toxins from the body, the skin can become smelly, dry or develop infections. Just some information that might help any of your friends and family think about detoxing if they wouldn’t otherwise 😉

1. The Gall-Bladder Flush

This was the first technique that I tried, and the technique that I would recommend most people start with, especially if there is a long history of poor eating habits or strong signs & symptoms of liver/gall stones.

It basically involves drinking a glass of apple juice three times a day for at least 2 weeks to soften any stones present in the liver and/or gall bladder. Most often these stones are composed of cholesterol and are softened by the enzymatic content of the apple juice. Then after a whole day of avoiding eating anything fatty, a glass of oil (olive oil is best) is consumed to cause a sudden release of bile from the liver and gall bladder into the duodenum to digest the large amount of oil that was consumed. Many stones, fats and toxins are also flushed out with the bile as the liver squeezes it out. This is why such techniques are called gall bladder flushes. Often too with some methods, magnesium/epsom salts are consumed to relax the smooth muscle within the bile ducts such that any large stones can pass more easily.

When I started this cleansing, I was aware that energetically my liver & gall bladder were not working efficiently and that there were some mild emotions/thoughts relating to them. Physically I have been considered in perfect health by the medical profession – I had undergone an extensive medical exam as part of obtaining my residency in New Zealand a few years ago. As I say, for those who wish to continue to raise their vibration, what may seem insignificant to many professionals, can lead to great change spiritually speaking. Hence my aim was to free myself of energies that I did not need anymore and boost me further along the awakening path.

Despite not having any obvious physical signs or symptoms, I found many liver/gall bladder stones (in the form of cholesterol balls) the first two times I did a flush and less so on the third time around. The first time, I felt many emotions, mainly irritation and frustration, coming up as well as thoughts relating to them. I had the same happen the second and third times too but they were stronger and I also had large releases of tension through my head and right shoulder girdle. Energetically I also felt stronger in the liver area. This goes to show that the advice given on the link below to perform multiple flushes until no stones are apparent is sound advice.

The best article and method I came across was this one: Flush Gall Stones Naturally. It is the most detailed article in terms of giving you a plan to follow and includes using epsom salts to help relax the smooth muscle such that less irritation happens if you have larger stones. For those of you who cannot find Epsom salts, then look for magnesium salts as they are the same thing.

2. The Coffee Enema

Coffee Enema Kit
Example of a coffee enema kit – from www.stressnomore.co.uk

This was the second method I tried. My partner Åsa-Maria (who is now providing Distance Bars healing sessions by the way) introduced this to me, as she had been doing them regularly since 2014, and gained a lot of benefits from doing so.

This method basically involves using a bag or bucket with a hose, to insert coffee-water slowly into the rectum and colon. There it is held for up to 20 minutes, unless you need to go to the toilet sooner! During this time the coffee goes straight to the liver via the veins and lymphatic system where it shocks the liver & gall-bladder into flushing out bile into the duodenum, much like in the Gall bladder flush technique above. Again, many stones, fats and with them, many toxins are flushed out with the bile too, hence it’s cleansing effect. After holding onto the coffee fluid, you simply go to the toilet and let all the fluid pass out as well as any other contents of your intestines that also come out.

This technique also has the benefit of acting like a mini colonic irrigation, hence you may also find toxic jelly-like lumps, dried faeces, lost articles you may have swallowed and other matter passing out afterwards. Hence this technique is very cleansing to the bowels too, even if it seems awkward or disgusting at first.

You may be asking why doesn’t drinking coffee do the same? If you drink coffee, instead of going straight to the liver, it passes throughout the rest of the body first. Not only does this mean that it doesn’t shock the liver, it also means that many toxic by-products of metabolism are created by the coffee around the body. Thus it actually puts more of a strain on the liver to do its detoxifying job!

I started doing coffee enemas a month after my 3 gall-bladder flushes, which were also one month apart. Despite these other flushes, my first coffee enema flushed out yet more cholesterol balls and some jelly-like substance that I’d never seen previously in my stools. Again after each session I often noticed the emotions of irritation and frustration come up and so I have managed to transmute a lot of charge from the relating belief systems as a result.

I have done many enemas since and while I don’t seem to notice much in the toilet afterwards compared to the first few times, I have noticed that my digestion, energy levels and energetic stability have improved. I will be following the advice of doing an enema at least every few months to do further cleansing.

There are a lot of articles out there to do with coffee enemas. The most comprehensive and useful that I came across was this one: The Powerful Health benefits of Coffee Enema Therapy that Big Pharma does not want you to know. Though if you’d like a smaller article with some basic guidelines you might like to try here.

I was lucky that may partner had a great amount of experience performing them, but you may have to experiment a little bit in terms of positioning yourself and the bucket, finding out the right concentration of coffee so that you can hold it in for long enough and still cause a shock to the liver etc etc. Obviously the articles above contain all the information you’ll need. I would like to repeat however that you should use organic coffee and as pure water as you can find – there is no point doing a cleanse if the materials you use also have toxins in them!

There are a great many companies out there selling enema kits. Obviously go for products that don’t leech any materials into the fluids you use. I personally bought a silicon bag and tube from a UK online shop here, as it was more useful to pack away should I continue to travel and work from around the world.

3. The Edgar Cayce 3-day Apple Diet

Edgar-Cayce
The late Edagar Cayce

For those who have never heard of the late Edgar Cayce before, he is probably the most documented psychic in the world. He was involved in helping scientists studying psychic phenomena, especially with regard to medical subjects. He also transmitted a lot of information about the past and future.

The diet is very simple, eat nothing but organic apples, at least 5 a day, and drink plenty of pure water for 3 days. At the end of the third day before bed, also drink a glass of olive oil to flush out the liver and gall bladder. There is some more information on the Edgar Cayce website here.

So as you can see it is a kind of small version of the gall bladder flush mentioned above. I would definitely recommend doing the first mentioned gall-bladder flush a few times first, as it is a stronger technique and will make sure that the majority of stones and toxins come out. Then you might like to try the Edgar Cayce apple diet as something you can do more often as maintenance.

Some General Advice from my Partner

My Partner Asa, as I have been writing this article has mentioned a few things that may benefit the above methods as well as liver & gall-bladder health in general. So here are the tid-bits:

  1. Consuming fats including oils between 10am and 2pm is good since that is when the bile flow is predominant.
  2. Fats are vital to the health of the body and cutting them out of your diet can put a lot of strain on the body including being able to deal with bodily toxins. The problem is more to do with the chemicals/toxins/hormones etc that are often found in the fat of meats and other fatty products, due to poor farming and/or manufacturing procedures. Like I have said before, fats are used by the body to store toxins away from the organs if the body cannot keep up with flushing them out or neutralising them and this is no different to what animals do when exposed to them. So always educate yourself on what fats are the better options. Organic is a good start.
  3. B-vitamins upregulate the liver by helping the body digest nutrients including fats, that the liver metabolises. Especially if you are vegan or vegetarian, most people in Western societies are lacking in vitamin B12 especially. This vitamin also greatly helps with mood, energy levels and rebuilding nerve tissues – very important for those of us undergoing the brain changes associated with awakening. Many people are cured of depression simply by regularly taking a good B12 supplement. Try to get it in a liquid form and put a number of drops of it in pure water so you can slowly sip it throughout the morning. You’ll not easily get to sleep if you take too much after 2pm. The number of drops varies depending on how much you may need but try 10 drops a day to satrt with and go from there. The best liquid B-vitamins including B12 I have come accross in terms of purity, effectiveness and energetic vibration is from Premier Research Labs.
  4. There is a lot of mis-information about oils and their health benefits. All oils react strongly to the sun, so try not to buy oils that are in clear bottles or that have an older date as they are very likely to be rancid…. often even before they get put up on the shelves of a supermarket! This is especially the case with oils such as rapeseed oil which ideally should be consumed ASAP after manufacture.
  5. Obviously oils also react to heat so most are best consumed as a topping on food rather than used to cook food in. Most people know not to use olive oil to cook with. Many other oils are rancid before cooking anyway. Butter and coconut oil are better options.
  6. Olive oil is the best option for lowering cardio-vascular disease out of all the oils tested so far around the world. In fact most plant-based oils such as sunflower, rapeseed etc have not shown any benefits to reducing risks, despite what food companies would like you to believe.
