Dr. Veronica: I’m so happy you’re back. This is Dr. Veronica again. It’s the Wellness Revolution. Today we’re going to talk about your vibrations. Of course when I start my doggy starts barking. I know he’s going to stop, but he’s like a kid. That’s Apollo today. You guys have seen Artemis on some of them come into the picture. My doggies keep me company. Artemis is away. Apollo’s here today. Let’s talk about the vibrations.
Let me just talk about a little bit, when I’m talking about my doggies, that I know my doggies from a past life, way back 4,500 years past life. And they weren’t doggies in that life. They were actually peacocks. This is another life where I spent with my husband.
I’m telling you about this because we know each other, and we all have energy, and we all sit at different vibrational levels. The healthier you are the higher your vibrations are. The higher your vibrations are the healthier you are. And you’re saying, “What does that all mean?” Well you might term it energy.
You say, “My energy feels high. My energy feels low.” Energy is what we say in Western terms. But when you go outside of Western terms, more eastern, you start talking very specifically about different areas of your you. The physical you is not just what you see, there’s also the physics of you and the vibrations of you. And we’re going to talk about a little bit of that now.
In Western medicine we never talk about that. You say to your doctor, “My energy’s low.” And they say, “I’m sorry your energy’s low.” Well, here we deal with it more specifically. You know I do this as a medical intuitive. I look at people’s energy. I don’t even meet them. I don’t even like to see them before I do the reading, because I get too much information and knowledge. I’d like to just know their name and their birthdate.
And guess what, Jaya Jaya Myra is with me today, and she works with vibrations and healing. She is an international bestseller author. And we’re going to talk about those vibrations, energies, and systems outside of Western medicine that can help you heal and help you feel better.
Guess what, you get stuck in life, we all get stuck places. And Jaya Jaya Myra can tell us where we get stuck by knowing tiny little bits of information about us, by looking at a picture, and maybe listening to voices. This is why I don’t talk to people before I do readings, I can tell things by listening to people’s voices. That has a certain vibration to it.
I realized in my voice, a lot of people say, “I like to listen to you.” Yes, because there are certain sounds and vibrations that help your body and your feeling. Jaya Jaya Myra, bestselling author, expert in vibrational healing and energy. Welcome to the Wellness for the Real World.
Jaya: Thank you. It’s good to be here today.
Dr. Veronica: Thank you so much. I want to know first of all a little bit about your background for the audience. How did you get started doing what you do? Because most people aren’t born thinking about my vibrations. How did you get started?
Jaya: That’s very true. Actually my background is as a molecular biologist. I was very close to getting my PhD. I was doing immunology research. And I wasn’t very happy with the way that the research was going. I wasn’t happy with the models that we use to get information where you’re testing on animals and doing things that cause death and harm to creatures in the name of health and healing.
So at that same time I was pursuing eastern philosophical studies and studying with a guru. And I started to uncover some of those hidden secrets to health and wellness that were rooted in the philosophical teachings. And I found and I personally believed that they were going to work a lot better, and that I wanted to develop my life to that.
Right when I was on the verge of getting my PhD I walked away from that and from the pharmaceutical industry, and just started this whole other path. I felt it was better to be in integrity with myself and what I really believed than to go forward and get a degree in something that I never felt that I was going to utilize.
Dr. Veronica: Interesting. When I first went into undergrad I wanted to go into molecular biology. I ended up going into psychology and neuroscience, but it’s always interesting to hear how alike my background is to a lot of the people that I interviewed, and I don’t even know that part of their background. So you’re drawn to certain types of people.
Dr. Veronica: You said pharmaceuticals, that hotbed word. The pharmaceuticals seem to be running our lives now. Were you doing pharmaceutical research? What were you doing with pharmaceuticals and why did that come up?
Jaya: Part of the time, yes, I was working in academia and part of the time I was working within the pharmaceutical industry in pre-clinical testing. And that really just took too much of the time. It came to a point in my life to where I began to get very ill myself and doctors couldn’t really figure out anything that was wrong with me.
And so the very interesting story behind that, I think this is when I made that whole complete transition over to the more energetic approach and philosophical. I’m working with meditation, breathing, and alternative methods. I ended up essentially to being released from my job on disability.
I was so distraught and everything that was happening and I literally just said a prayer one day. It’s like, “I can’t go back. I can’t do this animal testing anymore. It’s just killing me and breaking my heart. Just make my hands now work or something. I can’t do this.”
And then that’s literally what happened. I went into the back to work with a group of animals and my hands went numb and stopped working. And I couldn’t perform my job anymore. That was when I took that as a clear answer to my prayer. And I dealt in wholeheartedly into these other teachings and kept exploring and understanding the trends and the relationships, and how you plan health, how you plan wellness, how it really steers spirituality to your life path and everything. And I was able to heal myself completely and naturally from a point to when my doctor couldn’t figure out anything and was starting to put me on complete disability.
Dr. Veronica: Interesting. Did you have a diagnosis that when you went out on disability or were you one of those mysteries?
Jaya: It was a mystery but she did diagnose me with fibromyalgia.
Dr. Veronica: It’s so funny. I’m laughing because you didn’t describe what you had. And I get energetic readings from people. And it popped into me fibromyalgia. It just popped in. I should’ve sad it ahead of time, “Did you have fibromyalgia?” It’s always I think when people in the Western medical system go towards because basically you can’t find something else that’s wrong with you then they’re going to diagnose with the syndrome. Because medicine doesn’t exactly know what it is yet or what causes it.
They know that of course if there’s links between fibromyalgia, and lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis, they all stem from similar things energetically. It just depends on how and where it’s impacting the body and mind.
Dr. Veronica: Let’s talk about that energetically. Because in the work that I do I see people on both sides with fibromyalgia. And when I say on both sides I see the people on the functional medicine side with fibromyalgia. But I also see people who come to me for intuitive readings to figure out what’s wrong with me. Who end up later on the reading after I tell them, “Here’s what’s going on,” they tell me they were diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
One of the common threads I see in people with fibromyalgia which is quite interesting, quite a lot of anger that’s buried deep. And sometimes fibromyalgia clients are difficult to communicate with because they’re very wedded to their diagnosis.
It’s almost like angry at the world, and when you try to help them it’s almost like they don’t want the help. Tell me what you’ve got now the fibromyalgia from both your personal experience and also now your vibrational healing experience based on what I just said.
Jaya: I never accepted that I have the syndrome that the doctor said I had. I always knew what the root cause of everything really was. And so I’m not the sort of person that likes to put labels on something. Eastern philosophy believes that the body is going to respond to the experiences that happen to you in life.
So if you have traumatic experiences and pain it gets stored in the nervous system because the nervous system doesn’t have a way to unload this burden. And yes, anger is a very detrimental thing. It’s hot. It’s fiery. It’s very closely related to fire element. And what it really does is if the parasympathetic system can’t kick in it just goes in and burns everything up. And then you end up with pain everywhere in your body because this isn’t being managed.
I found that a lot of people want to own their diagnosis. It’s like the disease belongs to them. And I never did that. I’m like I’m not going to be ill. I’m going to get through this. I know exactly what’s wrong, and I’m going to work it up. And that’s what I did.
So I think that’s one of the things that sets me apart from a lot of people is I didn’t want to stay angry with the world or with life. I want to heal and I want to be able to heal other people. And I want to live a good, successful life for myself, which I have been able to because of the practices that I do, with meditation, with spirituality, with [Unintelligible 00:11:09] and services to world, and helping people. All those things are very therapeutic, and they do help to unload that burden that’s in the mind and the emotions that then gets reflected through the body.
Dr. Veronica: You are able to find your healing. Tell how you help people find healing now. You’re talking about these nine types and the different elements that have gone through the conversation so far. Give us a little background on that so we can start to understand more.
Jaya: The way that I explain it to other people is rooted in the eastern philosophies, broken down into a person’s elemental composition. So we have five main elemental types of earth, water, fire, air, and space or ether element. And so everything that’s in existence here is made of different proportions of those elements, some with very little density like air and space, all the way down to earth and water which are the most dense of the elements and weigh the most. It’s like tangibly, you can touch things. The body has a lot of earth and water elements and it couldn’t exist in this form.
When you understand that everything including humans and the human body are made up of different portions of these elements. And that each element has traits and attributes that go along with it to shape your body type, and also to shape your emotions and your psychological temperament. It becomes a lot easier to understand why you act in particular ways, why you like specific things, why you don’t like other things. And to find the sorts of modalities and lifestyle habits that are going to work for your unique composition type.
And so everyone has all five of these elements inside of them, but they’re all in different proportions in different people. I work with people to understand what is their main elemental composition, how does this breakdown in percentage terms like [Unintelligible 00:13:04] with the other ones. And to find the sorts of alternative and natural modalities that are going to work with them based on their elemental composition to find the right meditations that will work, the right breathing techniques to explain to people why they’re inclined maybe to the career, or the arts, or whatever it is that they’re doing right now. And how to expand on that in a healthy way for their vibrational frequency.
Dr. Veronica: Okay. Give us an example. I say feel free to use me as an example. You say, “I just look at people and I can tell who they are, what they are.”
Jaya: You’ve got a fairly balanced composition but I would say that you got a lot of air and water too. But I know you wouldn’t be as successful as you were if you didn’t have that fire element there as well. When I look at you I see all of these different elements together.
And so those balance compositions, it can be a blessing or a curse like the way that people work with them. But I would say the way you’re working with your energy is definitely working for you and for the things that you’re doing, and being of service, and helping that client, and working on the healing arts.
But some people come and they don’t have balance in their energy type. Or they’re really watery, or they’re really earthy. Or they struggle with health problems like weight gain. Weight gain is something that’s almost always attributed to earth and water elements being out of balance. And helping people to bring that back in. Or people say you can’t gain weight at all, they have a huge proportion of air element in their physical body. It becomes very, very difficult for them to actually put on weight, stay grounded, stay healthy, and stay focused.
Dr. Veronica: Let’s break that down just a little bit more because people are saying, “What do you mean?” So you said, “You’re more air and water but you’re balanced.” Okay, I got that. But then you said, “Air people have problems gaining weight.” And then you got the earth water people… Did you say earth water people are the weight gainers?
Jaya: Like the person who could look at a cookie or a piece of bread and gain five pounds. [Unintelligible 00:15:13] like the earth and water element type. Or they have the greatest proportion of earth or water in the constitution. That’s one of the ways that it manifests in the body is that because earth is the most dense of all the elements, so that energy type is going to make things solid very quickly. So that’s going to solidify in the physical body and make the body actually larger. It’s pretty cool when you think about it.
Psychologically it does the same thing. We’ve talked about manifestation, and manifesting, and bringing things to us. People with a lot of earth element are really great in manifestation because they can draw things to them, and take subtle ideas and concepts and make them a reality. On the physical side you got to really exercise and work your body. But on the mental and emotional side when it’s working for you, you can be this really great, really organized, and really powerful person.
Dr. Veronica: This earthy person who’s having trouble with excess weight, and usually when they end up as your client or my client the excess weight is a big deal and a big problem and causing a lot of problems. What would you tell somebody to do to balance that out? How does this all fit together? How do they get more toward the air? They’re like, “I want to be air.” How do they get there more?
Jaya: Eating foods that are going to come back up, like not eating earthy rooted foods as much like potatoes, carrots, things that are in the ground. Those are earthy by nature. And if you don’t want to get rid of some of that density you eat foods that are lighter. Eat things like salads, nuts, fruits, lighter grains, quinoa, things that are going to uplift the energy a little bit more. Of course eat smaller portion sizes, which is good for everyone.
But the most fundamental thing is you need to exercise just about every single day. You need to do something. You have to be extremely disciplined and diligent. And all energy types have their strengths and weaknesses. So it’s just a matter of being really accountable to knowing what your energy type is, what is the weakness, and not succumbing to that weakness. Play to your strengths and minimize your weaknesses. Knowledge is power.
Dr. Veronica: Are there certain disease states that tend to be associated with the earth type?
Jaya: I haven’t explored that side of things. We’ll say like excess [Unintelligible 00:17:51] energy in general, like a lot of density. If someone has a disease it’s not because they’re an earth-based composition, it’s because they have a lot of density and stagnation in their energy type. It’s because they’re not working with their energy type well or effectively.
Someone with a really earthly constitution can be extremely healthy if they can take care of themselves. But someone who’s not taking care of themselves, I think they’re going to be more prone to getting any number of diseases or ailments just because it’s so easy for the physical body to get affected.
Dr. Veronica: So the earthy people are the ones that are just going to have to work really hard it is what you’re saying.
Jaya: And water, I would say water even more so because water element is really tied to the emotions. And it’s tied to the way we relate to sexuality, and the way that we relate to food. People with water constitutions are the ones I think who struggle with it the most.
Dr. Veronica: Okay. On the other side is the air. And those are the people you said that have trouble gaining weight. What else goes along with the air?
Jaya: I’m sure you’ve heard the typical term, being an airhead. That’s kind of like where that comes from, not being grounded, not being fully connected to what’s going on. Maybe having an idea or a concept but not being able to root that down to reality and make something of it. Like people who can start projects and come up with ideas but can’t follow through with it and stick the course to completion would be something that an air element person would do.
They could be this really great creators and conceptors, but then they’re going to have to hand off those ideas to someone with a little bit more the ability to put them into manifestation.
Dr. Veronica: I can see how I can be an air. If you translate that to a [Unintelligible 00:19:39] Index what you just said means that I’m a nine quick start and a two follow through, and that’s what an air is. I have these very lofty, visionary ideas, and I have to have somebody on the team that I can pass it off to to get to the end of the line. It’s very difficult.
In [Unintelligible 00:20:00] terms, what is your instinct. That means you’re a quick start. You come up with all these beautiful visionary ideas, very creative. And then it’s like I [Unintelligible 00:20:14] out now. And if you don’t hand it off to somebody else it doesn’t get finished. And so you have to realize that you have to balance it off.
As you’re talking about it it’s not about making yourself more of a follow through, it’s about making your team, putting the right people on your team. So I don’t pick on my team quick starts. I have to pick people who are follow throughs on my team.
Jaya: You should always have a team with you that have other attributes that you don’t have so things stay balanced. I think your energy is more balanced than that. But for someone who has a lot of air elements, like if that was their primary type, it would be very difficult for them just to have the vitality and energy to work long hours and carry through on these mental and physical projects. So it would be very useful to have someone who could do that.
Dr. Veronica: How do you look at somebody and tell, what are you seeing in them? Are you seeing their aura? How do you do that?
Jaya: I don’t know exactly how I do it but I can tell by the way the body is shaped, the face, the body. People who have more rounded features will always have water elements in them. People who are really gaunt, or frail, or very petite are going to have a lot of air elements in their constitution. Anyone who has weight issues is going to be related to earth or water being out of balance.
People who tend to be neutral, like in the middle, good physique, good frame tend to have a lot of fire element, because fire sits right between all the other ones. And it’s like the hinge point for everything. It can take earth and burn it up. It can boil water. Conversely water can put out fire.
People who have water and fire in their constitutions it’s a horrible mix. It usually means that those people are prone to anger or outbursts. That happens, like fire boils water and water gets explosive and can [Unintelligible 00:22:17]. Or your emotional nature is going to dampen that fire, that drive and ambition that you have. It’s going to be covered up by your feelings and your emotions. That’s the hardest one to balance in people I think, people that are strong in water signs and strong fire signs.
Dr. Veronica: Give me an example about how you would work with a client, or a client that you work with and has come to you, and there’s been a transformation. Because we’re sitting here and it’s pretty theoretical right now. Yeah, that all sounds good but now what do I do with it?
Jaya: After a person learns about these different attributes inside of themselves, I think it’s really important to find the right meditation technique that’s going to work for that person. And I teach the difference between a technique and a silent meditation. And I find one of each for people to work with, because they have different results.
A technique is meant to focus the mind. It’s meant to cultivate fire, and just really focus on a goal that you want to attain and to help you attain that. The silent meditations are the ones that really dig deep into the body and into the mind and start unloading the nervous system.
They start unloading that burden that we picked and accumulated just literally by being alive and by being out and doing things. We get millions of impressions every single day that come into the mind and come into the body. And we have to learn to let those go.
Dr. Veronica: Yeah. It’s just like, “Oh my god, I have so much to do all the time. And all this is pilling in.”
Jaya: And it’s not healthy. I don’t think they think about it this way but we eat food every day. The body digests the food. And then we get rid of it. We excrete it out and it’s gone. But if you don’t do meditation you’re not digesting the things that come into the mind and into the emotions. It’s just sitting there and it’s cluttering up the mind like a garbage bin. And that doesn’t do any good.
Meditation is that process acquire that goes in and digests all of that stuff so then it can be excreted out the mind and the emotions and it’s not causing burden. Meditation by itself will fix a ton of problems that anyone who comes in. It starts to alleviate most health problems. It reduces stress. It reduces anxiety. It helps people to focus more. It helps them to be more in tuned with what’s really going on. And is not getting burdened by those millions of impressions that are poking at unresolved feelings.
Dr. Veronica: What about that person out there that’s saying, “Meditation, that’s just not for me. My mind goes too fast. I don’t have time.” Give me an idea…
Jaya: I think that’s the whole point. I think those people need even more. And it’s not about making the mind [Unintelligible 00:25:04] it’s about sitting and becoming a witness to what’s going on. Like you watch what’s coming through the mind. You see what’s going on. And eventually through practice you do get good at it. That’s the way with life. Anything you do repeatedly and consistently you will get good at.
Dr. Veronica: How do you describe the difference between meditation and prayer?
Jaya: I think meditation is when you’re really listening to yourself and god. And you’re being silent and you’re receiving. And prayer is when you’re asking for something. So when you’re trying to draw something to you, “Oh god, can you please manifest this in my life?” It’s an attractive energy. It’s pulling that towards you.
Meditation is an energy that just dumps things straight out of the body. It’s a little bit of an opposite process and I think that they’re both really important. Because if you’re praying you need to be able to listen to what’s going on, and if that prayer’s being answered. It’s not just by seeing something happen in your life, it’s by understanding maybe god doesn’t want to bring that to you, or maybe it’s not the time right now.
And if you meditate and you get really quiet you can just start to hear from the heart space. It’s like it’s very silent. The ego and the mind screams at you all the time. The heart speaks so softly you have to really tune into it and feel that vibration, and feel what’s going on. And then you don’t really have questions at that point. You can tap into just about anything you want to know about.
Dr. Veronica: If we want to get started doing this what’s step number one? How do we find you? And then as we’re getting ready to meet you what would you say people need to do to prepare?
Jaya: You can always find me on my website at jayajayamyra.com. You can find my book on Amazon. It’s been translated into nine languages now. You can find it worldwide. So if English is not your primary language there may be another language out there that would be beneficial.
The books actually have quizzes in them to help people determine their energetic type. So I make this really easy for people. They can pick up the book. They can find out their energy type, and their body, and their mind. It pairs those specific energy types already with meditation techniques, with pranayamas, with alternative health modalities. And explains why they’re out to work and why they’re not.
There’s very simple, practical explanations of the chakras which are great. I don’t look at it in a metaphysical way. I look at it in a very practical, tangible way that I can explain to people how are your different chakra energies affecting your consciousness and your thought patterns in everyday life.
And working with them that way, because then they’re approachable. What’s approachable is someone’s telling you, “This is a [Unintelligible 00:27:52] mantra for this petal.” That’s not approachable to anyone.
Dr. Veronica: It certainly isn’t. Unless you’re going to go spend your life in ashram and spend eight or ten hours a day in prayer and meditation. And I’m not really trying to knock that. That’s why some of these practices exist, just because they’re meant to take a lot of time for people that have devoted their life to doing nothing but that.
But there’s other spiritual teachings and practices that are adopted towards householders like you and me that have families, and relationships, and careers, where you don’t have to spend eight, nine, ten, twelve hours a day doing a ritual or something. The reasons people do it is to occupy their mind and keep them busy. [Unintelligible 00:28:34] so busy here in the west we don’t need that. We need simple practices that we can do and focus our mind and our attention on, and get results quickly.
The book will definitely help people do that. I do coaching with people who want to take it another step further and get personal guidance and advice. It’s really whatever someone wants to do. If they want to be very independent, pick up the book, you’ll learn a ton of things.
If you want to dive in a little bit deeper you can always contact me and we can do some one-on-one sessions and really fine tune what your energy type really is. And find techniques and modalities that are going to work for you. And that’s a wonderful way to get started.
Dr. Veronica: Wonderful. And so we always have… people can see on the posts when you find my posts, especially on the website. You’ll see where you can get the information of the people on the show and that includes Jaya Jaya Myra. And it’s just like, “I want to do this, take some quizzes.”
I was chuckling to myself because I was thinking, “I love the Dalai Lama. He always has such profound things to say. But I wonder how it would be if he had a wife, three kids, and two dogs, and an ex-wife, and the ex-wife’s wife and her kids, how would he feel about life?
Jaya: Absolutely. It’s really great People can feel very positive when there’s not things around them to make them feel negative. But the real key is can you be happy and joyful when you’re in the midst of everything.
Dr. Veronica: I believe that as you learn in life I believe that’s how you see people who have become more mature is because they don’t have the drama the same way. All kinds of things can happen and yet their emotions aren’t swinging back and forth all the time. They’re able to step back and observe. I believe more people have to understand how to step back and observe, and the how to take action that’s going to be useful action, that’s going to make changes.
I see now in our culture and society a lot of people are angry. They’re angry about what’s going on in the national front, in the world front, and they do angry actions. “I’m protesting, I’m yelling, I’m posting and arguing in the social media,” and yet all this is not getting them anything except more anger. It’s about being able to step back and interact with the society.
And you may feel indignant about something but you’re not going to attack other people realizing that even if you completely disagree with everything they have to say they still are your fellow human being that you are connected to. And if you’re so angry at them you need to wonder why you are so angry. What are you seeing in them that’s in you?
Jaya: Absolutely. I don’t think we have the capacity to get and stay angry unless that seed is already inside of you and you haven’t healed whatever was the original cause of trauma that put it there. Because when you’re able to go in and get rid of those seeds. Yes, anger can come but then it’s going to go too. It’s not just going to stay. Every little thing is not going to make you angry. And so meditation helps with that. Alternative healing helps with that. Working with therapists of course helps.
I always recommend people to have some kind of counselor, therapist, or spiritual guide, because that process of talking is one of the most beneficial things for health and healing that there is. You have to be able to communicate and get this stuff out of you. It’s like a first way for it to come out. Let it come out verbally. The garbage will just come out and get rid of it. And then you can start really working and rooting it, whether that would be true action wise, or yoga, or meditation, working with a trainer. It doesn’t matter the approach that you take.
That’s what I love about true eastern philosophy, is that there’s no one size fits all approach to anything. It’s all based on your unique constitution, on your dharma, your [Unintelligible 00:32:36] is a Sanskrit word. Your innate nature which is what these elemental types come down to is like these are all the aspects of your innate nature.
You find what works for you and it’s all about you. I can’t say that what’s going to work for me is going to work for someone else. My act of service is to be able to tell what’s going to work for the people that come to me and give them the techniques, philosophies, and the teachings that are going to make them stronger. I think if more people adopted these kind of philosophies the world would be a more tolerant place.
Dr. Veronica: How do we have that happen with the seven billion people on earth?
Jaya: I don’t know, because we’ve always had violence. It’s definitely nothing new.
Dr. Veronica: Yes, it’s true. But on the other side we’re all hearing this earth school, and there’s people who are hearing this earth school who aren’t violent, who are watching the violence. And there’s a reason that those people are here too.
Jaya: And it’s great. I think we need both honestly. I think we need violence, we need negativity. People have to have negative experiences because it builds their character and it turns them into good people. It makes you stronger.
If you’ve never had anything bad or unfortunate happen to you how do you learn to become strong and resilient, and be able to take care of other people who have problems? The most compassionate people are the ones who have suffered themselves. I don’t think that negativity is a bad thing. I think that we just can’t let it harden our hearts, and we have to be willing to heal and to let things go, and then teach other people how to do the same.
Dr. Veronica: I think underneath everybody wants to be a hero and a good person. I even believe those people who are bad want to somehow be good but they get into that trap of being bad. And it becomes easy, and a pattern, and a self-fulfilling prophecy because they have that negative talk going on in their head too.
So meditation is about sitting back and observing those thoughts and feelings that are coming in, and asking why they are. And determining what can I do about this, or how can I bring this over here from the yuck to the yum.
