• Processing A Biological Upgrade

Processing A Biological Upgrade

At two of our most recent weeklong events—but especially in Santa Fe—upon leaving the workshop many people experienced flu like symptoms ranging from sinus congestion and mucus to body aches, soreness, fevers, coughs, and malaise. Some took antibiotics or drugs, while others went to see a doctor or visited the emergency room. Although the doctors couldn’t diagnose the conditions, for many of our students the doctors confirmed it wasn’t the flu or bacterial. So the next question is: What were people experiencing after the Advanced Workshop? The answer is a change in body frequency.

The inner workings of cells are governed by the innate intelligence of the autonomic nervous system. At the most microscopic level, inside cells are tiny tubules called microtubules. Microtubules are hollow, protein skeletal structures (essentially scaffolding) that not only support the cell and transport nutrients through little tunnels, but they are also very sensitive to frequency. These microtubules can beat as slow as a drum to as fast as an antenna, and when they vibrate at faster frequencies in elevated states, it causes them to emit more light and coherent energy.

As you may know, all light is energy, energy is frequency, and all frequency carries information. As the cell emits a field of energy, it puts them on a wave length (you can think of it as all of the cells collectively being tuned into a certain radio station) that allows them to all tune into the same frequency. If they are sharing and carrying the same frequency and energy, then you have a set of cells or tissues all on the same wavelength—meaning they are all acting in coherence because they are vibrating at the same frequency. When all the cells are operating in such a state of harmony and coherence, we call this health.

I believe that the quantum model of disease suggests that sickness and dis-ease are caused by a lowering of frequency and an incoherent frequency. If a person has an imbalance or health condition where cells are not functioning at a certain level of coherence, it’s like static on the radio and those cells can’t communicate the information. Thus, the cells no longer function in harmony or coherence. The result is that this lowering of frequency reduces, or even ceases, the flow of proper information between the cells.

It was once thought that cells communicate because of charged molecules interacting with each other (although that’s the side effect of some greater instructions), however, the latest research in information biology says otherwise. Instead, the exchange of coherent light between each cell is sent and received on the frequency of various emotions—since emotions are energy in motion.


Raising the Body’s Frequency

At our two most recent events, for a week people focused on raising their body’s energy. They did this by connecting to the unified field, opening their hearts, and creating brain and heart coherence. The last three days of the event we also practiced three powerful coherence healing meditations, which connected the healers to a greater frequency, which was then facilitated through their nervous system.

In order for people to truly heal someone else, they have to get to the frequency of the fourth energy center. It is here in the heart, in this center of oneness and wholeness, where we begin to connect to the quantum (or the unified field). It’s here where the union of polarity and duality exists.

The pattern of disease exists in light, so when people start opening their heart and energy starts moving from their lower three centers up into their heart, once it reaches their heart the research shows it continues up into their brains. As it moves upwards, it moves through the neck, down through the nerves, and into the hands (which is what enables people to facilitate a greater frequency). Once someone begins facilitating the frequency of wholeness, as the cell becomes more whole and less imbalanced, it’s going to go through a host of chemical, biological, and genetic changes.

When this occurs and a person really elevates their body’s frequency, as the cell gets a vibrational change, it releases waste and eliminates toxins. The cell essentially opens up and dumps anything from the past that is unhealthy. This intense release of waste creates a huge stress to the immune system. Because there is a change in energy and frequency, the body begins to transmute, and this causes the flu like symptoms for many people.

I am writing this blog so that our community will change their belief that every time someone feels flu-like symptoms after a weeklong retreat, they don’t think they are “sick.” If any one of you felt the power and energy of this greater frequency during any of our advanced events, understand that the release of toxins, which were stored in the cells, is actually a good thing—not a bad thing. Instead, it’s the elevation of frequency that is causing the body to experience a biological upgrade. In the process, an enormous amount of physiological changes take place causing the body to reorganize itself on a cellular level. The cell will then eliminate, secrete, absorb, and even breath better. So just hang tight and know that you could either experience the symptoms now or experience them later. Like a snake molting its skin, you are shedding what is no longer needed. When you see it as your past being burned away, you just might bless it.

    It’s truly a miraculous process for the body to experience an upgrade. By my rough estimate, we were in deep meditation over 30 hours in Santa Fe. It was life changing for so many people. Thank you Dr Joe, for this very clear explanation.

    Sounds a lot like the herxheimer effect that many people go through when they do a serious detox.
    Someday, I will manifest enough money to attend on of your workshops! I committed to 30 days of daily meditations.
    I am now on day 265 and in the best emotional state I have ever been. Thank you.

      Laurie: I do one (of many that I now own) of Dr. Joe’s meditations every day… always starting with one (of several that I own) of the “breaths”. What is this “30 days of daily meditations” that you speak of? Is it a package that is available? Thanks!

    Thank you so much for this brilliant article explaining why I was as sick as a dog the last day of Tarragona. Woke up on Sunday morning totally paralysed from neck to toe in bed. Thankfully the paralysis was temporary and faded, however leaving me drained of all energy. Never experienced such ill state ever. Like I had been steam rolled with not one ounce of energy left in my body. Your explanation makes so much sense when not only did I pour all my heart and energy into the various meditations and activities during the week but had a mystical experience on the first healing session when both my entire legs became one big block of tingling electricity as if they had been plugged into the mains. This event was life changing and I’m not the same person who went to Tarragona. This “sickness” was indeed a blessing for me. Nearly 2 months on and I have not finished exploring the enormous and awesome awakening that I have had the privilege to receive. Thank you from my deepest heart.

    Thank you so much Dr. Joe for addressing this.. I for one have felt wonderful. The energy moved through me “like a freight train” just as you said it would during the Coherence Healings in Santa Fe. It has truly changed the way I view energy and my body. Thank you so much for all you have done and continue to do.

    It is so interesting to read this because the last night of the workshop I started chilling and fevering (for 2 days and nights). My Mom thought I had the flu but I told her I don’t think so because
    my bones don’t ache and always when I get a fever with the flu it makes my bones ache fiercely. Thank you so much for the explanation!

    Thank you so very much for spelling it all out for us, Dr. Joe. It was an amazing event in Santa Fe!! I very much look forward to the next one!

    …and how profound to have physical, mental, emotional, & spiritual evidence of all the changes that are occuring. You did tell us we’d be likely be experiencing some chaos or some difficult situations once we return. I can’t wait to see what the Devine will be bringing into my life!!! I already see evidence with people contacting me who haven’t in a long time & others not getting back to me who usually do. I truly feel in another dimension and I LOVE it!!

    Thanks again for all you are doing for all of us on the planet❣️🙏

    Dr. joe… thanks for this… I didn’t get sick with flu like symptoms, but I did get a significant rash on my face and arms as well as a cough. All resolved in a few days, but I did need medial support for the rash. All good now. My experience during the pineal gland meditation was intense though, and the lack of support on site was challenging. My hope is that given the understanding that shit does happen during so much elevating of energy, a room somewhere onsite where students can receive “energy first aid” may be extremely helpful. Obviously it’s up to you and your team to consider, but even with years of background and understanding of energy work, I was rattled and would’ve appreciated support, in the moment.
    … Avoiding the talent night was a must, as I wasn’t able to stop intermittent tears until the following morning. Next day I did the pineal meditation, but scaled back on the breath and allowed myself to open my eyes at times to soften the intensity. Once back to my “room” for the night, I spent a good deal of time in meditation to offset what occurred. It was helpful, but I was a bit confused as to what was happening or how to approach Sunday’s meditation, even with years of personal experience. That there was NO assistance in the moment was difficult to say that least… I hope that something is put into place in future for students. Again, thank you Dr. Joe for your work. It’s powerful and needed… Blessed be.

          For these events, the participants are assigned and start working with their team leaders up to several weeks before the workshop begins. They meet with them several times each day. They offer guidance and support for their teams throughout the workshop.

    I had a very very long reaction to my advanced week in tarragona. It felt like flu like symptoms it had all the signs of a viral flu with a cough that i had not experienced before. Something in me told me it was not a flu or a virus. I felt it was an upgrade but could not figure out why i was so long experiencing these symptoms of nausea, cough, flu etc. Eventually after asking my higher self i was guided to go to an energy therapist who within moments told me my sinuses were blocked energetically and he just did some energy work and released it…. I began to feel better quiet immediately. My lesson is now that I daily do energy exercises to prevent my energy getting stuck in my head. Awareness is a great thing. Thank you for this explanation it has been most helpful as I was receiving pressure from my family and friends to go to a doctor and i thought there is a great doctor in me and i have just been listening to the most upgraded information from Dr joe in Tarragona.

        Accept and appreciate your sinus, it’s part of the process. See as a blessing and your body will bring you back in balance. Trying to make it go or any interference stops your spirit/mind/body from doing what it knows best,to get back into balance and unity/oneness.

    We’ve heard it time and again that health is vibrating at a higher frequency, that dis-ease is lowering vibrations; so thank you Dr Joe for giving us the intensive opportunity to live it, not just think about it! And living through the change of bodily state while the past falls away is just part of the process! Your explanation helps us to understand that the upgrade isn’t just happening at the conference or retreats, but continues all the time if we’ll just stay with it. Bless you and thank you.

    I was very sick on the last day and after the Tarragona workshop. But I had a woman who had been sick for a month, cough right into my face as we were laying in the dark on the floor. My first reaction was you germs are not welcome here. But I was sick to my stomach, and had to hole up in an Air bnb in Tarragona for 10 days. Couldn’t eat, bad bad cough but no sore throat. Finally returned to Canada as too tired to do anything and left without exploring Spain, cancelled my trip to Findhorn, a spiritual community in northern Scotland, and was very upset. At one point during the event I did feel my genes were up regulating. Had pneumonia and a bladder infection. But the upside was since I was home early and once I was feeling better, I went to Mexico for 2 weeks to relax in the sun..

    I had to get over my anger and just accept the fact that I was ill and the excitement of my trip to Europe turned to disappointment. For at least 2 weeks I couldn’t listen to Dr. Joe’s voice or do any of the meditations. I felt like I was on overwhelm. I have since returned to meditating and doing the work. I am glad to hear that this was an outcome of the workshop work I did, so not all is lost. Thank you for the explanation Dr. Joe. See you on Vancouver Island in June.

    I am so grateful for this blog. In February this year I was in progressive workshop in Zagreb, after last day of it and till now I have all symptoms of sinusitis. Because I often had it and in past years I need an antibiotic for healing it I know the process. But this time some higher intelligence told me to wait…:) deep down in myself I know it. So I am in a process of breaking the habit of being my old-self. Now I know that miracles in my life are possible :). Universe Thank You

    As soon as I returned from Tarragona, Spain, I was sick as hell, sore throat and muscle inflammation ! I was heavily coughing although nothing was coming out and it lasted more than two weeks. I knew I was cleansing yet I was surprised at the intensity and how long it took. Also it went as it came, and there was no fever and no infection although the way I was coughing looked like pneumonia. I did not go to the doctor as I knew it was happening on another level. Overall, the only thing I did was taking some aspirin for headackes. I came back to myself after three weeks : physically, mentally and emotionnally, Yet I am not the same anymore, Something has profoundly changed in me and the way I look at my world, the world at large is very different. I am so serene and at peace, nothing seems to get me out of that state no matter what is going on around me. Several people were suspicious when they saw me so sick upon my return from the one week retreat and I could tell they wondered how beneficial such a retreat really is. So thank you Dr Joe for this article explaining precisely what is happening and I feel a lot of gratitude for taking us so far away in this beautiful expansion of our being. My heart goes to you with much much gratitude.

    Thank so much Dr. Joe! In Unity Spiritual centers, I have always heard that Charles and Myrtle Fillmore called it “Chemicalization”, but didn’t really understand it. Experiencing Santa Fe has been so life changing for me. Now about a month after Santa Fe, I am feeling these biological changes as I have continued my meditations and processing daily. I love that my body is feeling (a little not well) -that means change is happening, I am in the unknown where there is possibility and I am not taking it personally – “just the facts ma’m”.
    Thank you for your brilliance on so many levels Dr. Joe.

    This makes sense to me. I have been doing the blessing of the energy cars daily since the 2nd week of January. I know that I have issues with my first three chakras. Last week I had such crazy cramping and nausea after a particularly intense and powerful meditation. Was nauseous and sick feeling for 3 days. Now I notice the “space” in those centers and feel more expansive when I am blessing those centers.

    So yes, I believe the illness is basically energy clearing out the sludge and buildup in our centers. Old stuff has to move for clearing to happen .

    I also remember feeling nauseous when I started doing the breaking the habit of being yourself meditation back in July. Strangest thing.

    This process of becoming and arriving and journeying is such a wild ride.

    Thank you for this! And Thank you for having our Team Leader disseminate an abbreviated version of this explanation shortly after leaving Sante Fe. As a result of knowing this, when my body had symptoms show up 36 hours after the event, I understood what was happening and welcomed it, appreciating the upgrade and cleansing. In fact, in meditation after the event, I felt my body – not sure the word- integrating all the new info and changes into to my future me that was now my present. Tingling and heat moving from my frontal lobe through my brain and ‘zapping’ the mid and back of brain. And a myriad other sensations, all good and pisitve and exciting!! The fact my body was a walking bag of snot and hacking like a lifelong chain smoker didn’t phase me, I just felt too good!!
    Thank you for a wonderful experience in Sante Fe. See you in the Quantum!!!

    I too had a wave of symptoms after the Santa Fe retreat! Flu like plus much light and a conciderable shift in consciousness. This shift is what I came for and I am in deep gratitude…

    I didn’t think it had happened during the paneal meditations because I was in discord much of the time!
    To my amazement, I felt deep shifts afterward! So. It is a very individual experience and this retreat is the highlight of my life. I am in deep gratitude Dr Joe! Exquisite!

    I am deeply grateful to be on the other side of the illness Dr. Joe refers to which my body experienced for three weeks immediately following Santa Fe. I felt like I was in an alternate world with fevers that transported me to places far beyond this reality.

    While the doctor called it a virus and did prescribe antibiotics, hours of rest and relaxation in my own bed was the best prescription. I was sleeping up at 12 and 14 hours a night and craving more. I started a regimen of clean eating & high quality, high potency liquid vitamins & minerals. As of today I’m 8 pounds lighter feel amazing! My meditation practice is strikingly different and I feel a deep connection to the Divine.

    Thanks, Dr. Joe, for the updated content & explanation of cellular transformation. I’m living my future life!

    Many blessings to all.

      Hi Rita,there is a programme that supports people to attend who have no money; please look on Dr Joe’s website. The workshops are fantastic as there is a lot of energy, and Dr Joe in the flesh is amazing, but in the end there is an awful lot you can do to start yourself with very little money. I live in Australia and there you can borrow Dr Joe’s books from the library. You could put a request on any of his FB pages if you can borrow books . Then, the meditations you can download quite cheaply. At my first workshop I met an amazing woman who had been very sick and could no longer work, could barely walk and could not feed herself. She read ‘Breaking the Habit of Being yourself “and bought the meditation that goes with that. She did the meditations every day for a year until she managed to get to a workshop. She had a breakthrough there and she has not looked back since ( 2 years later she is now training for a marathon). It is harder without money, but not impossible, especially if you can reach out to Dr Joe meditators who live in your area— there are bound to be some people who will help you get started. There are also lots of talks by Dr Joe online for free to inspire you. Hay House have e books from time to time by him for a very small amount of money ( I think I paid $5 once). At the end of the day, it is about persistence, believing it is possible and never giving up. Good luck on your journey !

      Hi Rita, If you have not already, you can design your own program at home from reading his books. The 2nd one, “Breaking The Habit of Being Yourself” is a wonderful explanation of what happens in the brain and offers exercises and meditations along with it. You can download the meditation from his site. His latest book “Becoming Supernatural” is an amazing out line of how to do the work. It’s brilliant. If you do the work, you will have the results and you will raise your frequency. It is as simple as deciding that’s what you will do and doing it. Although it’s a wonderful experience to be at a workshop, you can make one for yourself at home.I have been to 4 of his workshops in the past but it’s the continuing of the work at home that gets you to a higher frequency. You can also make a mind movie for abundance and see yourself at a workshop. One day you will be there! Last year I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer. Along with conventional and alternative treatments, I outlined a daily 6 hour program of meditation at home (3X2 hour sessions). I did all his work. I went into remission in 3 months time and astonished my Naturopath and Oncologist. The magic is in doing the work consistently. Dr. Joe makes it easy for all of us to do that with his books and downloads. 🙂

    I’ ve done since 11 years many seminars and read many books wanting to understand how body and thoughts works (because I have experienced an unusual / miraculous cure before), and I had and have many problems in the familiy… and so much stress… I’ve bought your new books (since placebo) after they appeared in engl. and red them… but just now I came to understand how exactly all works (I’m reading “Breaking the habit to being yourself”).
    I think, you have explained the process earlier also very good…

      Hi Rita, I just want to tell you that I don’t have money either and at first was envious of all the people who were able to attend the events. But after reading ‘Breaking the Habit” and listening to two of his CD’s I’m seeing some changes. It started almost immediately with flu like symptoms. I found myself sneezing, coughing with sinus problems. And then the nausea started to come, even once in the middle of the night! I have only started this about a week ago! Even this morning I had another bout of nausea and am so tired! So, now, after reading his blog, I can understand what is happening to me and it’s actually a good thing. I’m detoxing!!! So, I don’t have to go to one of his events. But, of course, I would still like to but found I don’t need to. I hope you are feeling better! Blessings!

    Thank You for this excellent post and clear explanation of the process of biological upgrades. So helpful to read! I was in Santa Fe. OFF THE CHARTS. I have never experienced so many high frequency/vibe experiences of oneness, love, coherence back to back to back…for days at a time. I completed the week exalted, elated, so happy, whole and free, and within 48 hours entered into a wormhole of clearing and detox. It was totally unexpected and unpredictable…4 days of super high fevers and the most intense”flulike” symptoms I have ever had. It was a massive initaition in its own way, that stripped my identity and brought me to my knees. I was able to integrate everything we practice. I am on the other side and so grateful to read these words. THANK YOU DR JOE! You even inspire me to bless the dump of the past and fall in love with the whole process, bless the whole journey and meet it all with humility, passion and infinite possibilities.

    After Santa Fe I was high and did not want to leave the energy. As I returned and began to integrate to my life I was good and began work that Friday. Well Friday night, as if a switch was flipped I began coughing and sneezing. I climbed in bed for the next 3 days. I had so many dreams and felt like the shifts were happening in those in between states. I was grateful my Intergration was gentle. I’ve still got a small cough. This has happened to me before and I knew something was happening. I always called it Intergration. Thank you for your explanation. I just love you Dr. Joe! Thank you for your service to humanity!!! Ill see you in the field!! ❤

I thought it was a crash landing from high vibration into the lower of my regular life to catch a cold after I got home. …I feared I couldn’t maintain the high vibrations I floated on for days after… I buzzed in the airport among people of all kinds of energies (traveling home finally a day late due to flight delay)… Every time I closed my eyes and felt my heart open I would buzz again… So as I walked and waited I would buzz and bless, buzz and bless.

    Continuing to do the work is so critical for me though I am dogged by schedule and life some days. We’ve were fined tuned to love and that is beyond amazing to experience at such a level and though less obvious now at moments, is still very much accessible with intention and focus. Humbly, & with deep gratitude…

    Well, I was seriously charged with joy and enthusiasm when I returned home. So grateful the Universe provided this powerful experience for me and others. Dr. Joe, this gift you are sharing in a scientific way makes it readily accessible to anyone with the desire to evolve.

    I feel you have handed me the Owner’s Manual to this magnificent human body I occupy.

    Hi Dr Joe and Team
    Another cracking blog, thank you.
    Increasing vitamin C before, during and after would also help support endocrine system from (almost) bottom right up to the top. There’s also the added bonus of it supporting immune system as well as other energy channels 😀
    Hope this info can be useful and thank you for all the work and all the play you do 😀

    Hi Dr. Joe,

    Thank you for this concise information. On an alternate note, since I have returned from Santa Fe, two people told me my voice is different, and one told me I was much calmer…I am so grateful for the workshop, all the participants, Dr. Joe, the meditations, and yes, the challenge. Thank you for all that you do.

    A few weeks after the à Toronto Progressive Workshop in August 2016 and right after I had registered for the Anvance Workshop in Garda Lak e Italy—These flu like symptoms knocked me off my feet. I could not go to work. My best friends were my bed and my couch. I had protein in my urine. The doctor could,t say what was wrong. Somehow I knew. I said to m y son: I’m releasing toxins. I’m rearranging my cells. That week on the couch so much got rearranged. I manifested a perfect partner, I manifested my Iyengar yoga certification and my life. I love this work. Thank you Dr. Joe

    Hello Dr. Joe,
    I was in Santa Fe (and live here) and it was my first ever workshop with you. I did the Progressive and Intensives the week prior to attending, so it was a quick and deep dive in. The morning that the workshop started I had to go in for a call back on suspicious mammograms, requiring second mammograms and ultrasounds. I felt elevated following the Advanced Workshop, continued the meditations, and had two breast biopsies on Feb 14th (three days after the workshop). They both came back negative, for which I am deeply grateful. I never really thought that I had breast cancer but the process was stressful. At the same time, the timing of that entire experience was a display of the Divine patterning my life’s events. Meanwhile, I began to experience psychological shifts and over the following week I encountered some rather intense experiences with people in my work world which highlighted my own core patterns that needed healing. I kept meditating, and retreated as much as possible from the world. Meanwhile I noticed that I was eating more sugar and flour carbs (normally I’m gluten free). I think these were old coping mechanisms rearing their weary heads. Also, I think that I needed to eat more protein to support my body changes. (I’m a fish eating ‘vegetarian.’) Finally I crashed, felt sick, and slept for about 24 hours. Then I was fine again. I realized that, on my own, I never laid down after doing the mediations and feel that this is an important piece. Like in the Advanced Workshop, we must lay down to allow our nervous systems to integrate and adjust to the higher frequencies following meditations. I feel fine now, following some supportive bodywork to help balance and move energy. The healing and shedding processes continue and, for me, do seem to be supported through good sleep, balanced food, lots of water, epsom salt baths and staying in community with others who are doing the work. I feel that I’ve fallen through the rabbit hole and I’m rather obsessed and very excited by the journey! Thank you so much Dr. Joe and all of your team for these extraordinary gifts. Much Love, Dr. Jill
    P.S. Now that you’ve been here, you KNOW about New Mexico, “The Land of Enchantment!”

      Dear Jill:

      I am very impressed because what you say is the same as what happened to me.

      Everything…. all detailed things that you count, including the subject of carbohydrates, it has happened to me exactly the same.

      I am practicing and trying to be a good student of Dr. Joe Dispenza and of course I consider this as a sign that we are on the right track.

      Thanks for your valuable testimony…

      Much love Jill, from Spain 🙂

    Hello Lovely Dr Joe & Fellows @work,
    I didn’t attend the long week retreat as yet, however can share similar experiences from the current stage of meditation and life at the same time. Usually, after the morning meditation I experience some sneezing, body spasms ~ which might be a bit strong, This dissipates with in a few minutes or so. So, yes the body and being are reshuffling as I go along with new paradigm of energy shifting.,
    Many thanks for all inspirations & sharing.

    My previous teacher of 20+ years called this “threshold sickness”. I experienced it when great up-leveling occurred in my understanding.

  46. Huntress March 10, 2018 at 11:52 am - Reply

    Wow! This explanation came in the perfect timing – as always. I am currently on day 10 of feeling ill although slowly coming off of it. 1 week prior to falling ill, I was working solely on my energy centers, incorporating open focus and heart coherence together with blessing the energy centers. I’ve been doing Dr. Joe’s work diligently since the start of the year, waking up at 4am almost everyday, as best as I could, doing various meditations such as ‘Pineal Gland’; ‘Reconditioning the Body to a New Mind’; ‘Tuning into New Potentials’; a sitting down version of ‘Walking Meditation’ but never really worked on the energy centers.

    So after reading the chapter on Blessing The Energy Centers in “Becoming Supernatural” and breaking through my analytical mind and fully grasping it, I put everything that I understood together into practice. Day 5 into working solely on my energy centers, I became ill with what seemed like a virulent viral infection. Symptoms ranging from fever, malaise, shivers, night sweats, muscles and joints ache, gastrointestinal symptoms, upper and lower respiratory problems, headache, sore throat, nausea, persistent coughing that rendered me incapacitated for a full week. My first initial differential diagnosis on myself was illness due to a suppressed immune system from my stressful job and was tempted to investigate further by doing a serology test on myself but a gnawing feeling inside me thought that this could be a Herxheimer reaction from the beautiful divine connection I made by opening my energy centers.

    I did not treat myself with any medications, pharmaceutical wise, but taking lots of Vitamin C and amino acids to boost my immunity, persisted through with the discomfort and simply allowed it to run its course. Now, 10 days later, I’m still weakened from that ordeal, but I’m fully coming to terms with the entire process and this article speaks right through me. Thank you very much Dr. Joe, I am enjoying my journey through your work. I am also ready and really looking forward to seeing you in NZ and Australia in October!

    I left Santa Fe with a bad cough and experienced difficulty with breathing that continued for three weeks. My concern is that expecting to be sick after a week-long seminar could become a new belief. Dr. Joe’s explanation was helpful and I don’t want to make it a new expectation.

    I too was very sick after Tarragona with the worst flu I have had in years. I knew what it was because I have experience similar healing responses before.

    EXTREMELY powerful things happened at Tarragona with a lot of people. I would say that the team leaders were not qualified to deal with some of the intense reactions and I agree with other commentators that it would be very helpful to have experienced heath/spiritual professionals around to assist those who are having a profound time.

    This is such welcome info and makes total sense to me now. I have not experienced even a cold in 12 years- always healthy! A week after Santa Fe I experienced the worst “cold” ever. I still went skiing with friends, but had to go to bed at 7:30 pm and needed so much sleep. A general malaise set in for another week. Now I get it! Thank you. I am thrilled by this upgrade and will welcome these feelings as what they truly are.

    My partner & I both attended the week long retreat in Spain. Given how intense it was and without break I think we both expected to feel a bit tired immediately afterwards, but were taken by surprise by being effectively poleaxed! It certainly wasn’t flu like for me, more like severe jet lag that just didnt clear after the usual 2 or 3 days. Since I only lived one hours time zone away it obviously wasn’t that! I was up after a week but my partner needed at least 2 and maybe nearer 3 weeks to get back to normal. I am so grateful to understand why. Thankyou.

    Dr Joe, I am Cecile Locke. I and my husband Bob are holistic physicians in Indiana since 1995. We have been doing spiritual practice since 1989 and have deepened our meditation practice with you for two years.Santa Fe was incredibly wonderful. The creation of smaller groups, and activities that required us to support one another allowed interaction that was deeply heart opening.We made new family there. The healings were phenomenal. I was in my room vomiting the last day and then over a week had chest congestion and my husband did also. We knew it was a blessing and allowed the process without complaint. We feel that we moved our future potential to a much higher one. We had a car accident last Friday in which our trailer was violently ripped off our truck by a young man who was driving erratically under the influence of drugs. No one was hurt. After my next meditation, I was shown that in our old lifepath two people should have died, but it changed to only mild damage to our truck and a chance to maybe bless this young man by offering a wake up call. My husband was shown the same thing independently. Wow! Thanks for providing these life changing oppourtunities.

    I cannot tell you what a relief is to read this blog! I have not been to an advanced workshop, but after reading books, doing meditations for 3 months and doing progressive workshop online my system crashed. For over 3 weeks I felt no energy, nausea, rashes, coldness, brain fog. I am on a healing path so that episode got me very concerned, it almost felt that my health is getting worse instead of better. My thinking kicked in questioning if my thyroid is mulfunctioning, or disease progresses. I kept meditating every day and changing my state, and now, a month later all Is well. I do feel not the same as before though – it feels like speed gears in me shifted on a lower one. Everything feels more grounded. Interestingly, when I was in the middle of that episode I asked God what is happening, and the answer was “We are remaking you”. So thank you Dr Joe for this explanation, it makes perfect sense and brings joy into my heart. In a week I will be doing medical tests and I know they will be reflecting the upgrade 🙂 Much love

    I experienced this after Mexico City, and again in Cancun and yet again in Carefree. I left Carefree after the second day because I felt so rotten and didn’t want to give anyone else whatever I was “catching”. Glad to finally have an explanation. I haven’t been to any workshops since, but work with the meditations fairly regularly at home. Not sure I’ll try another advanced…if I’m too sick to continue after two days, I’m probably better off releasing/upgrading more slowly.

    Good to know! I had no idea what hit me after the Tarragona retreat. I was in bed for a week! I was confused as it seemed like such a contradiction to what I had anticipated. I didn’t provide any feedback about it (as requested with your survey) because I didn’t want to focus on it. But it’s really good to know that this was part of the process and beneficial. 🙂

    Thank you Dr Joe. I go over this in my book LOVE YOUR BODY: Your Path to Transformation, Health & Healing. I love your teachings, your ability to make the complex simple, and your vision that invites us all to shift our context to interpret what we are observing differently. Much love to you. While sometimes, our physical symptoms are only physical, ie we need zinc or protein or need to identity a toxic heavy metal,
    I honor and respect you for inviting us all to see our selves as multi dimensional beings and that sometimes our physical symptoms are related to being “RETUNED” to make room for more compassion, trust, forgiveness, and interconnection to perceive dimensions our pea brain cannot grok.
    Taking a powerful stand within ourselves congruent with what you are staying in this blog can leverage us beyond reasonableness to complement whatever therapy we choose to use to feel better.

    I have a question- in other modalities like Chinese Medicine and medical QiGong – they teach that after opening the energy centers (particularly the head and heart) it is very important to end with a clearing in which you bring the energy out of the head – out of the heart – and into the place of storage being the lower dan-tien (physical center). I’ve been taught that although we may meditate and bring energy into the head and the heart and connect these areas, it’s important to clear it out prior to the end of the practice and store it in the physical center so you don’t get ill. I have no firm belief systems in this area, but am wanting to gather opinions. Do you have any feedback on this?

Thank you for clarifying the science behind it. I have had so much pain disappear from that time on that I am sure it continues just not with the solid impact that you and the shift of 1000 people caused

    Thank you for the gift of this amazing experience. I attended Santa Fe – and for me – 🙂 my chaos started on the way to Santa Fe – our flight from Denver go canceled, and what was planned to be an early arrival (Sunday evening) turned into driving from Durango, and arriving Monday about 1)) PM … I am somewhat OCD about control – so this event was a perfect “walk away from my normal life” … I have taken many classes, done self improvement things for the past 10 years… NEVER had a reaction like this one. I know I dumped some big stuff – and have grown more from doing this work than anything I have ever done in the past … I am a Reiki Master, Certified Massage Therapist, Certified in Myofascial Release techniques by John Barnes … and work with energy daily. You explained the possible detox effects during class – and I often explain to my clients, (albeit a little differently) that they may detox after treatment … but this was the most intense “sick” feeling I have had – since chemo. (I am a breast cancer survivor – chemo 1990) I feel blessed to have had such a dramatic proof of shift… Had I come home without feeling any physical difference, I would still have known it was a great experience, but the flu like symptoms gave me proof that I really shifted. Even though I am still dealing with a bit of lethargy, I am in a place of “HAPPY” can’t be rattled by much of anything, and it’s okay that I took some extra time off to give myself a break after the class. I wouldn’t change a thing in my experience… the “chaos” – was exactly what we needed to have in order to step out of our normal routine, and be able to make the shift as we did. It was Perfect …… Thank You so very much for the experience of a lifetime.

    Thank you for this, Dr Joe. I attended a very intense spiritual retreat, some years ago and many people were experiencing symptoms like headaches, vomiting and unset stomachs because the energy was at such a high vibration and we weren’t used to it. Your explanation has given me the explanation behind what was happening there, too – a double win.

    More and more frequently, when I am practicing the meditations you have shared with us, I find that when I am hitting the ‘sweet spot of the present moment’ I am jerking. It feels like the collision of two levels of energy but was a little disconcerting, initially – I’m more used to it now. Have you heard of this, before, and is there anything I can do to (other than the work) to raise my vibration more effectively? Maybe I am just being impatient and should let the transition happen at this current pace.

    Thanks for clarifying the situation.

    What if it actually was the flu. I have not been to this workshop and have the same symptoms. When I went to urgent care they said there is not way to conclusively diagnose th flu. I have had this happen many times. The diagnosis for the flu is made by default when the strep test comes back negative. I must say I’ve been a huge fan for years, but this article really raises doubts about the honesty level in the establishment for me. It would be one thing to acknowledge that people sometimes go through healing crisis when evolving spiritually/energetically but to not consider that maybe a real virus was passed around in one of your workshops is disturbing to me. In reading all the comments many many people went home and got terribly sick and had no clue that by your estimation this could happen due to their evolution. How could they leave th workshop not knowing this if you are so certain that is what was happening. Something smells so fishy and i find it disturbing.

      Zora, I understand your feelings about Dr. Joe’s explanation. I had the same reaction to it. Certainly a portion of those who were sick were sick because there is a serious virus going around, and it affects people whether they were in a workshop or not. I was actually coming down with the crud the day before we left to drive from Denver to Santa Fe, but I didn’t know what it was. I told myself it would pass….probably just exhaustion from a busy week…but it got the best of me and I attended only 2 days of the workshop, and spent the rest of the week holed up in the airbnb. I was really, really sick for 6 weeks, and it’s only been in the last couple of weeks (it’s end of March now), that my symptoms are all gone and my lungs feel back to capacity.

      It may be better to choose a time of year when the bugs aren’t going around to crowd 1000 people in a large room and have them physically interact with each other.

I have had Herxheimers reactions before and this feels just like that. So, I think his blog is right on the money and no one was catching anything there in Santa Fe.I’m also feeling differently about everything and I am much calmer. A few friends are already noticing some changes in me. Wow!

    Re: easy fix for flu like-symtpoms from a Dr. Joe workshop.

    Last year I healed myself of Stage 4 cancer at an alternative clinic in Mexico. I was a couple of months away from dying, they told me afterwards. https://youtu.be/VokZvNz6dsg

    In addition to many other treatments, including hands-on healing by my wife, part of the process was to use a whole foods diet, including a huge number of fresh juices each day. And, of course there was a lot of meditation, limiting belief clearing, journalling, etc. used that isn’t part of cancer “healing” in allopathic medicine. I’m going back this year with a bunch of Dr. Joe’s books and guided meditations to pay my blessing forward to the incoming patients. It was cancer that introduced me to Dr. Joe and helped me to create the new me.

    Of course, taking antibiotics or going to the emergency room indicates a belief in the Newtonian cause and effect model of medicine rather than in the quantum model. But there is a way to facilitate the release of toxins and wastes from the cells after these workshops that may be cause and effect based, but is much healthier and more effective. Whole foods and lots of carrot/apple and green juices plus one or two coffee enemas a day for a few days should do the trick. The foods will strengthen the immune system and the enemas will stimulate the faster release of the toxins and wastes from the pancreas and liver. You will feel clean and healthy inside and out and won’t simply have to “ride out” the after-effects of a successful workshop.

    I agree that if we all collectively start to think “if I go to a workshop I will experience flu symptoms and/or become sick” is not a good way to “think”. Instead, I am going to create a safe haven for my soul to reside when my body is needing to purge, sleep, emit pain or experiencing whatever it decides to do in assimilate the frequency shifts, upgrades and/or any new changes in body/mind/soul. I will NOT expect any illness or create it but listen to my bodies needs and simply be aware and not let it turn into fight or flight reaction . Instead, think “I AM resolving my frequency and welcome this transition.

    I haven’t attended a week long but have been experiencing the same kind of reaction and I meditate a lot and as of late have been branching into deeper modalities. So, now I am going to shift my thinking that my weakness, low energy, cough whatever is my body as a detriment or becoming sick and instead embrace it as my body and soul asking for me to slow it down, rest, receive and practice gratitude for my ability to grow and BE-come the spiritual avatar I was meant to be in this life. As a teacher of love and leader need to realize that if I do not process my elevation with rest and love how can I represent and be a channel for others… I am now going to lie down once again and meditate and communicate to my body as it remains below calibrating and connect to all that is to complete this upgrade. I am going into receivership and be grateful. Thank you for this article very helpful.

    I have attended a number of advanced workshops, only ever experienced a great lightness afterwards. I have no doubt about the process of detoxification but have to say that almost everyone I know got a blast of very potent flu early this year, across Europe/America/Mid East. Being in an enclosed space and practising breathing techniques among hundreds of people for a whole week might possibly be a factor……?

    Thank you for this article. (I read it in the perfect timing). Precisely, it is about almost two months ago in this 2018, that I re-started to do the meditation of Breaking the Habits of being yourself. It has been a breakthrough for me, because I started to experience a change inside me. When I was a teenager ( Now I am 45) I began to experience allergies, to dust, cats, etc. Few years later, that lead me to the hospital. I suffered Pneumonia, my left lung almost collapsed, I was 22. I was in the hospital 8 days. After that, the doctor told me: “you have Asthma”. For me was a shock because all my life I was “Healthy” until that moment (now, I realize that it was only from the outside, but I was leaving with the hormones of stress from within until now). I lived hard experiences with my parents, they got divorced in a violent way, I passed through hostile times and after I was in the hospital, my father passed away. (Imagine my stress)
    Well, I was never happy with that diagnosis, because I said, I didn’t have this before, now I am experiencing this condition, there has to be a way to take it out. Unfortunately, at that time there was no information about the cause of the illness, but I started to practice and take alternative medicines like acupuncture, homeopathic and the like. My journey began. I started to practice meditation with an ancient technique from a yogui, and of course there were some times thal I felt healed, and I start to understand that the change depended on me and there was a lot to learn. There have been few times that the asthma attacks come back in a harder way (I visited the emergency room two times).
    My question is always, why is this happening? Why I am feeling well and suddenly this attack comes to the point that I am in bed with little air in my lungs, coughing almost to death? After 20 years, I realized that was stress. Everytime that I was under a lot of pressure, (allowed by myself and fear) I suffer from this condition. Two years ago, the Energy brought to me the audio book from Dr.Joe, Breaking the Habits with the meditation disc and together with my family we started to practice it. We experienced change, but not enough because we stopped. But something inside me told me, keep doing it, this is the way to heal. So I started again two months ago, and as well to search for videos to listen to him, and that’s when I have my “aha” moment, I understood the process, I understood how our brain works and how we are conditioned from past experiences. Every thought, action, emotion have an impact in our life. At the time I am writing this comment, I am experiencing exactly what this article is telling us. I had the “flu-symptomps” I experienced again the “asthma attack” I was lying on the bed almost dying. I couldn’t attend my daughter’s presentation, my husband was worried about me, he said: “call 911, if you need to” I have to go to work. All I know, this time was different, inside me I felt some kind of cleansing, but I wasn’t sure until I read this article (perfect time). Yesterday was the crisis, today my lungs are accepting more air than I used to. I know this is the path to healing and to change may living conditions to a more joyful life. I practice the meditation everyday, I understood that the practice is the key to change your conditioned mind. Now, I am feeling more calm, more joyful, I try to be aware about my daily emotions and when I feel fear, I say “change”. I am teaching my children to Mediate and to be aware about their emotions and thoughts as well. Thank you Dr. Joe for your commitment to your work, for helping the people to understand that it can be done, and HOW to do it. I am open to the unknown, I agree with that. I am asking that it manifests in a way that is not normal. I am in the path of manifestation, ( it manifests this article, it’s working). I am working to match my will, mind, vibration, love with the “field”. What a journey! Blessings and Love! THANK YOU!!!

    Thank you so much for this information Dr. Joe. I have yet to attend an advanced workshop but I have been working diligently through “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself”. On the third day of Week 2, I came down with flu-like symptoms that were debilitating. I was unable to get out of bed for 2 days. My head hurt so much…I can hardly remember a time when I’ve been this sick. Your article confirms that it was not a coincidence that I became ill while in the process of dumping old programming. As a wrote to a group member, I have found the process outlined in BTHOBY to be incredibly effective and multi-layered…the emotion I chose to work with turned to be one aspect- part of a fractal signature- one emotion branching out into another and another until I was able to uncover the root cause. The blessing in all this was to be able to do so without beating myself up. After all, the intention is to free oneself of the past, not pile on shame and self-denigration….as always, your newsletter is a great support,, inspirational and fuels my heart to stay the course…many blessings to you!

    Thank you for sharing this Joe. The ‘symptoms of shift’ need to become Common Knowledge. Understanding what is happening really helps to alleviate fear, and gives confidence in moving forwards into the unknown. I am still going these transitions at a cellular and field level after 30 plus years of healing – beginning with raging fevers and vomiting while training as a healer in the 1980’s, solar fire rising from the cells of my body, shaking between the atoms (a very strange sensation!), dissolving into space, popping, full body elevator-rushes…and sometimes now stabilizing in ‘golden frequency’ which is almost indescribable. I am in awe of the beauty and vastness of consciousness. I met you at the London one-day introductory workshop (with Gregg) after The Consciousness Conference in 2015, and am so grateful to know you are continuing to deepen and share this work. Thank you.

    Gracias Dr. Joe,
    Que alivio. He estado muy preocupada porque a medida que me adentro en la meditación, me he sentido muy mal. Ahora comprendo.

    Wow! Of course! I came back from Santa Fe to a very busy week at work – on Thursday I started presenting flu like symptoms : fever flashes, lack of appetite, aching muscles, coughing coughing coughing. It’s taken about 3 weeks to get past it.
    It’s crazy I didn’t mention it in my review of the experience. Just hadn’t put it together yet. Yet how can you spend a week in a room with 900 other people who share a single purpose of elevating their energy without being deeply affected. Thanks to all who were there and also Dr Joe

    Thanks for all that info – very helpful and reassuring!!

    I want to add a few things that may be relevant for others as well: I have experienced “healing crisis” and “push back” from my psyche/body as a result of “upgrading” before, so I was not too worried about being sick, though my symptoms were very unpleasant and started already before the workshop.

    Unfortunately, I walked through the casino part of the Santa Fe Hilton on the first day when we registered since I could not find the upper level entrance. I got hit with lots of energies of disembodied spirits, but I was so out of it being sick that I did not realize what had happened; I was extra vulnerable being sleep deprived and having so many symptoms, that I did not know what was up or down.
    I was ok enough during most of the workshop since the energy was soo amazing 🙂 Then I was down for the count again the day after the workshop ended and again several times after that despite using tons of energy medicine, supplements and rest etc. When I was still sick 2 weeks after returning home, I decided to get some blood work and the tests came back with raging Epstein Bar Virus antigens; now it finally made sense why this was taking so long and why I was soo fatigued.

    I made a real turn around a few days ago when a friend helped me to clear the disembodied spirits and when I started taking homeopathics and receiving Rife treatments for Epstein Bar.

    I am with Kyle about the need for a space and knowledgeable staff during the workshop where students can get help when the shit hits the fan. I too have decades of experience with transformational work and thought I was pretty prepared, but I was not. Some of what came up needed compassionate presence and support from another human, who knows about this kind of transformation and can provide guidance and if necessary some intervention. I attended the workshop by myself and did not know anyone and I did not have anyone I trusted to go to with my confusion and overwhelm and the symptoms I was experiencing were pretty scary. Thankfully, a couple from our group happened to be available during a break to spend some time with me and that changed everything; if they had not helped, I am not sure how present I could have been and whether I could have gotten much out of the workshop since my NS was so in survival.

    Meantime when it’s all said and done, my life has changed in many unexpected ways that are super profound; the veil has been lifted on old habits and many things that used to puzzle me are now so much more clear. I did not have positive physical changes during the workshop, however, once I had been home for a few days, I realized that my heart beat had regulated and that I was sleeping soundly most nights which had not been the case for years.

    I am soo grateful for this work!! and can’t wait for registration to open for Cancun, as I will be much better prepared by then. The walking meditation are amongst the most powerful for me. I often cry with gratitude feeling Dr. Joe’s love and encouragement and the possibilities for my new life!!

    I experienced exactly the same flu like symptoms in feb 2917 after the advanced at Lake Gada- I knew my body and system were transforming and I went to bed for 5 days allowing my mind and body to rest sleep reboot.
    I listened to Dr Joe’s meditations and I trusted my intuition to just be in it.
    2017 was one of my most transformative years personally.
    I love the work of Dr Joe and I am grateful everyday fir my continuing increase in joy, happiness, fulfilment and frequency.
    With love Anne Marie

    I became extremely ill for a week after the Tampa Advanced Workshop last year, as did someone else I met there. Interesting that this is a widespread phenomenon. I have to say, I have been much stronger in terms of physical health ever since.

    You mentioned being able to heal others. My dad has had several strokes and is struggling a lot. Is there anyone who has opened up all this energy who would be willing to come and send energy to him? His comprehension has been affected so he can’t learn how to do it himself. I live in Olympia Washington and would be willing to pay you to work.

    These experiences of releasing toxins also happen after an Intensive with Dr. Michael Ryce, author of “Why is This Happening to Me Again” and developer of the First Century Aramaic Forgiveness technique. Worksheets that you work with, very complimentary with Dr. Joe’s work. Dr. Ryce calls this a “Healing Crisis.” Very much the same. Reassuring to hear it from another source, as I had only known this information from Dr. Ryce. Also happens to me after intensively doing Kundalini Yoga for days at a time. Yes, it is a blessing!

    This is so good to read. I was very challenged by the digital tech requirements to do this seminar. I felt very less than. I was feeling old and incompetent because of it. Then when I got sick the last two days, so much I could not get out of bed on Sunday in Santa Fe, which means I missed the last day entirely. I thought I was too low frequency for the group and the teachings and thats why I got sick. Knowing now that I was upgrading is such a relief! Maybe I can do this work after all. Thanks for the extraordinary!

    I set off the security systems in the Santa Fe airport even with my normal TSA clearance. Then, for the first time after flying one million miles for business, they swiped my fingers for analysis. Strange. My sister and I promptly fell ill with what seemed to be the flu. Fever, lethargy, etc. for 7 days. We were not tested by a doctor, but my husband appeared to catch something from me and he tested positive for the flu. Definitely makes sense because the coherence hearings were awe-inspiring and transformative. Thank you for the explanation.

    My friend Carmen and I attended the wonderful workshop in Sedona a couple of weeks ago. On Monday morning I woke up to go to the bathroom and found myself both bent and propelled forward. I would stop myself to regain my center, it would happen again repeating four or five times. Having worked with energy for decades I figured that it was simply that there were some shifts happening that I was integrating. The funny thing is that my posture felt as though it looked like Kokopelli. This was the day that we had planned on hiking to sacred sites with a friend who had hurt his ankle so he couldn’t guide us. When my friend Carmen came out of her room I told her about what happened saying that it was a good thing we weren’t going on the rocks that day. She wondered what I was talking about until it happened again and she was witness to it.

    A couple of days later my throat started getting a bit scratchy, until I sounded a bit like a frog upon arriving to the east coast exactly a week after the workshop. The first thing I did when I got home was to use some essential oils on my chest and throat which calmed it. Since that time I have had some interesting shifts in the throat and chest, yesterday and today significant release from the sinuses even though they hadn’t felt congested. I have been doing the part of the meditation that was recorded from the Santa Fe workshop daily found on the Facebook Page, sometimes twice a day. I’m hoping and looking forward to this powerful piece being available in its entirety for purchase.

    In the meantime my life has been evolving in what can only be called a quantum manner. I believe it was Dr. Joe who said to expect the unexpected in our lives after attending the powerful weekend. Hahaha!!! Yes indeed the delight-filled, unexpected yet anticipated through a third eye vision of fifteen years ago is becoming manifest. Rapidly at that. So fun! <3

    I live near Sedona in Cottonwood, Az, and was in the area at the time of Dr. Joes visit. I soon after, had all of these symptoms he spoke of, and I knew it was my
    own personal “upgrade”. This article put it in a full understanding of my new life.
    \ I feel lighter, freer and do breathe much easier. I have been experiencing some lack of determination toward my goals I have had planned
    out for myself. All I know is that they will play out through heart action now rather than controlled, orchestrated steps I was used to.
    This is easier, and I am a bit excited and
    scared all at once….VERY different to be alive after 64 years of control. Humm

    Hello Dr Joe,

    Thank you for the explanation on the biological upgrade. I have been studying and practicing your meditations for over 2 yrs now, and have made significant changes in my life on all levels.
    I know now, attending one of your workshops would have explained a lot for me and how to do all of this more properly.
    I have read all your books, practiced all your meditations over the last two years, it wasn’t until I read your book “Becoming Supernatural” last month, that it all clicked together and I received major biological upgrades after the meditations and affected the people close to me in a very positive way.
    I finally decided to tell my parents and did my own little workshop presentation for my Mom and Dad 3 weeks ago with a whiteboard, diagrams and everything. We all did the meditation together, Blessing of the Energy Centres. I couldn’t believe how my Mom took to this like a duck to water!!! She was faithfully doing her meditations every day for a week and was getting very positive results. She called me one day and said “I feel like I’m in Heaven”
    Than last week, my Mom got very ill, and she never gets sick. She had chills, body aches, low energy, very sore throat and congested. She even missed work, which she never does.
    She couldn’t even do the meditations. With your explanation, she feels so much better and it’s good to hear she is just releasing all these toxins and will be right as rain in time.
    Thank You, and keep up the great work.
    Your the Best!!!

    Wow! Very enlightening to see that so many others had a similar experience from Santa Fe. I thought I had food poisoning after the second night with a skill piercing headache. After vomiting everything I ate that day, my headache went away and I fell asleep like a baby. When I woke up the next morning, I felt great like nothing happened and ate normally the rest of the week. I asked around to see if anyone else who ate the same food had food poisoning, but no one I asked did. Then about 24 hours after getting back, I started coughing, then fever, then chills. I was out of it for about 1 week barking like a seal. I tried to just get through it, but the muscle pain in my back from the tailbone to the back of my neck was keeping me up all night. I finally gave in and took Tylenol which helped a bit, but eventually, my strength started coming back and I noticed my approach to enjoying life had changed. I’m more grateful and excited about where I am and where I am going in this moment. Focusing on my energy and where I direct it now has grown to where I am not the same person who showed up at the beginning of that event. Thanks Dr. Joe for your detailed explaination of what a lot of us went through. Very inspiring!

    I haven’t been to any workshops. But I have purchased Dr Joe’s ‘You are the placebo’ meditation, and I played it for the first time last week. Over the past few days I’ve had a stomach bug which feels a bit like what you get when you’ve eaten food that was contaminated or off. None of my close family members have caught the bug – I’m the only one to suffer with it. It never occurred to me to think it could be anything other than a medical condition of some kind, until I read this newsletter today. I’m amazed! I look forward to getting through the detox and seeing what transpires in the future – and I’m definitely going to continue with the meditations.

    Thank you. Would this also explain that during the meditation (the last 5 minutes) i became very dizzy and everything around me felt like it was turning. It was a really scary feeling, at one point i thought i was would faint and opened my eyes( i have fainted a few times last year, and i live alone). Or would this be something else?

    Wow, this article found me at just the right time, I had a day off and did a lot of meditating and kundalini yoga all day. After that my low back and legs were very achy like I was getting the flu, then my bowels moved at least 5 times, then I have felt extremely light headed, I had a dream the night before all of this started of my body moving into the ultimate frequency of love. This article gives me great confirmation on what is going on in my body! Looking forward to the massage sessions I will be able to give now with my new frequency and healing in my hands! Blessings……

    It sounds like as well as accepting this clearing and upshifting of frequency that the alchemist’s ray of the Violet Flame could be called in by Dr Joe and all the people in the room at the beginning and end of each day and decree that that transmuting energy and substance be dissolved, cause, core, record and memory in the Violet Flame and the transmuted substance and energy be qualified with the cosmic qualities of Love and Wisdom there may be an easier transition for participants.

    Im glad I read this article & the comments from the Participants. As Im readying myself for the Sardinia Retrear Ive been emersing myself in Dr Joe’s teaching and doing at least an early morning meditation every day. Ive been experiencing alarming tingling sensations under my scalp, neck & ears and other flu like symptoms. Ive been waking at night feeling as high as a kite with the most amazing insights that are producing wonderful outcones. My GP had taken a Pathology test to check for symtoms.
    I thought to myself this could be a release of all the shyte that Ive harboured all those years of living unconscious. As inspite of the symtoms I mentioned I never felt so AWAKE ALIVE & READY !

    Hi Dr Joe! I teach at the Rhys Institute for Energy Medicine. A couple days ago a colleague and mine exchanged one of the Full Spectrum Healings that we teach.
    During the healing I experienced what I can best describe as a moment of reality altering. I could feel it inside me as well as all around me. After that I literally felt my body morphing. The next couple days I was sick, like the flu, but I knew it wasn’t the flu. Thank you for your article, it all makes sense now!!!!

    Hello Everybody, I would like comment on all these people getting sick with these wide variety of different symptoms from meditating.
    In 1970 when I was 5 yrs old and my father was 27 yrs old, he was dying from a overload of toxins in his guts, that spread to his organs, and ended up in his blood.
    He prayed to God back then, with all his heart to save him, because he had so much to live for, my sister was just born, he just purchased a new home with my Mom, and they were truly in love.The medical system back then had no answers for him but to subscribe antibiotics and pain medications
    After praying one night, a voice spoke to him to look in the thin yellow page directory. We lived in a small northern city in Canada of a population of only 420,000.
    He found a chiropractor clinic that just opened, and met this German Dr. This Dr said that he couldn’t believe that my Dad was this sick at the age of 27 yrs old and told him he did not have much longer to live.
    He asked my Dad “Do you want to live Len?” My Dad said “I will do anything you say!”
    So this Dr said, do exactly this: Drink lots of pure water, stay away from all foods that are white, eat nothing but fruits vegetables and seeds and sprouts.
    So my father faithfully did this for a whole year, and got back to perfect health.
    When I was older, he explained to me what he went through, he said he had very bad bacteria in his guts and lots of toxic build up. When he did this regime faithfully, all that bad bacteria died off and all those toxins came out of his body and he even got more sick, but eventually ended up feeling a 100%.

    I have realized now, that this build up of bad bacteria in our guts is a major cause of all our heath problems, and these toxins are getting into our organs, blood and our cells to all kinds of different degrees for everybody, and even eventually causing all kinds of diseases and symptoms.
    Plus, thanks to Dr Joe, how stress is keeping our autonomic system from working properly.
    Sounds like Stress and Toxins is a very bad combination.

    So, if people are getting sick meditating in the Quantum Field, and toxins are releasing from the cells slowly, why not do one of these certified 4 to 6 week body cleanses that are all over the net, and just physically clear out the whole body of most of these bad bacterias and toxins and get it over with.

    When I compare to what my Dad went through 47 yrs ago, and it took him a whole year to heal, (mind you, he was very dedicated to what he put into his body, but he did not do any kind of meditating). With all this new knowledge, a person could do it in a third of the time.

    Just wanted to share my thoughts with all of you.
    Your the Best Dr. Joe
    Thank You so much for your Dedication to share your all of your Knowledge and Discoveries.

    Dear Dr. Joe: I completed the online Intensive and Progressive this past June, 2018 and I’ve been doing the work, mostly Blessing the Energy Centers, every day for the past two months. A few weeks ago I noticed a fairly intense but pleasant feeling of energy in the right side of my neck during the mediation only. A few days later, I felt a throbbing pain, annoying but not very intense, in my collar bone that would leave and return like a mild neuralgia. This continued for a while until I went to bed and then continued the next morning. It spread to my jaw and teeth. This worried me so I went to the ER and was checked for heart problems. I got a clean bill of health, and the collarbone ceased after about 24 hours. However, I continue to get similar annoying pains in my teeth and in other places, including my arms and left pectoral muscle. They are worrisome, but my intuition is telling me they are a sign of detoxing or moving energy. Does anyone else have these symptoms, i.e. annoying pains that come and go for several hours and then disappear entirely? If the pains were in my legs or some other extremity, I wouldn’t worry, but pains in the pectoral muscle and my teeth tend to scare me. Thank you for any insight.
