Late 2019 Dr Joe Dispenza held workshops as part of a cruise tour around the Mediterranean. Dr.Joe has written several books including “Breaking the habit of being yourself” and his recent mystical thesis “Becoming Supernatural.” Having done the blessing of the energy centre meditations a few times, literally a few because of the intensity of the effect I got from them, this was something to be part of.
The cruise looked like an ideal opportunity to be around like minded people (over 650 where packed into the ships largest auditorium) and travel. I knew it was going to be fantastic as I was excited from the moment I decided I had to be on that giant boat. I had no idea he was going to be conducting the meditations and, despite my getting a message during one of my regular “tuning in” meditations that I this was going to be a turning point in my life. Of course my mind told me that the cruise was probably going to be him doing his explanations of the same material and selling the progressive and week-long workshops he respectively sells online and conducts around the world. How wrong was I?
Dr.Joe, as he is called by those familiar with his work, has quite a league of followers. He is rapidly on his way to Jesus like status for many reasons, but mostly, I feel, due to his own humility, his radiating high vibration (you can feel it when you get close enough) and his ability to create in others healing and mystical experiences. Joe will be the first to say it is not he that heals, it is the person's ability to let go and connect with source. Either way, all of that is meant to occur in the big guns workshops. The cruise, due to port stays and excursions and the obvious desire for leisure time onboard the giant floating New Standium (housing 2100 guests and 1000 staff) only allowed Joe to speak for on average 2.5 hours a day, sometimes with a second session and some days none at all.
To my surprise and delight many of these sessions included various forms of his mediations. Thankfully I had previously exposed myself to Dr.Joes robotic hypnotic commands to reach into the blackness of space and open your heart. Many who had not developed the ability to get past their discomfort with his change in voice and tone also had difficulty getting out of their running thoughts and into the space of no mind, no body, and no place. Personally, I have had a lot of experience in the realm of meditation, consciousness expanding methods and receiving kundalini activations, so letting go into the field of blackness was something I had literally already tried at home. This space is described in A.H. Almass's books the void of space, which is not brilliant bright happy light as many would like to believe but in fact black space, which when surrendered to, is not in the least bit frightening or ‘dark’.
The meditations got a little more intense each day and each time I let go into the void just a little more, nearly loosing myself if it were not for a woman with a hacking cough behind me, many times prior, I would have been gone.
Although he seldom uses the word, much for Joe’s work is about manifesting, and many of the people I spoke with had some amazing stories of things they had manifested. Even the actual voyage was for many, an amazing manifestation. I myself had manifested a first class flight to Istanbul as a stop over. I was definitely on the manifestation train but never have I been into the kind of idol worship I was hearing from some of my fellow group members (who became a core group of friends I called my ‘cruise family’).
I have never been in a fan club, and while I do 'look up' to certain people, to go crazy over being touched or looked at by them was just not my thing. So when my room mate came in the first night after dinner buzzing with excitement that Dr. Joe had entered the restaurant after I left and hugged everyone I was a tiny it jealous. So I set my intention then and there that while a hug would be nice, a selfie with Dr Joe would be better.
The general intent of the meditations was to get into the field of possibilities and stay there, not reacting like your old self but keeping attention wide beyond your old self, acting into the future you want to have. One of the meditations got me to the space and I made a point of travelling the entire day with my only focus on my heart and the rest of my attention spread out into the field, open to possibilities. That evening found me running from one end of the ship to another to find various people I had arranged things with. I was not sleeping enough with the lilt of the ship, days were packed with tours, and nights with whatever meetings and activity’s I could fit.
Meanwhile I am spanning my attention out like giant fan originating in my heart and spreading out to the corners of the corridors, momentarily tuning into the little voice in my gut that would say, ‘turn down that way and you might find who you are looking for’. I wasn’t “looking for’ Joe to take a photo with but I was holding that in my field also. And just as he said, “it” happens when and in ways you least expect it.
Turning down one side of closed buffets looking for the group I had left to cancel a massage appointment I saw him and his chaperone standing there as he was finishing a conversation with another passenger.
I was walking in that direction and really couldn't do much other than walk into the back of the pair at that moment Dr. Joe turned to look at me, with recognition beaming out of our eyes he said hello and moved in and gave me a giant bear hug.
It was a complete full body chest to chest, heart to heart hug. However, the thrill of the impromptu meeting and radiance of the man was not enough to silence my tentative request."Can I ask you for….?" he completed my request, which must be so common for him "a photo, sure" then I was asked to accompany him upstairs as he was late for dinner.
I was surprised at my giddiness, as mentioned, I am never really phased by fame, I've rubbed shoulders with the rich and famous many times before, they are just people, but this was something I had set my mind to manifest, and here it was! I filled my awkward silence as I climbed the stairs with introducing myself as Clarissa from Australia. Joe graciously responded with "ah, Australian, of course, you are such a good hugger."
Outside the upper dining area his chaperone took 3 photos, later I noticed a halo effect coming from our heads, I am sure it was the lightning… or am I? Following the brief but thorough photo shoot Dr Joe turned to me once more and I received a second deep heart felt hug. This was a hug like no other before.
As I can often feel energy in this moment I could feel the vibrations emanating from his open heart - truly I could. I have had transmissions of source energy and from masters and shamans before, but never through direct contact heart to heart. Thankfully, I was open to receiving it and I was sensitive enough to not only feel it but recognise it for what it was. Despite my delight at having got what I asked for so seemlessly, the hugs were the real icing. The embrace lasted long enough for me to feel what felt like tiny little electrical impulses flutter from the full space of his chest to mine.
I walked away elated and tingling in a delightfully disoriented state. I was both stunned by my manifestation and infused with his energy. People line up for days for a hug from Ama, I get it now. There was a transmission of high vibrational energy, love, unable to be described but it had affected me in a profound way. Something had been triggered and from there on I was more relaxed, for one I had not only two amazing hugs and my photo, but a brush with the energy itself.
And this was just the beginning…
There is a whole other blog post yet to be written but here is very brief addendum. As special as the above experience was, it was a tiny taste of what was to come. Days later, unable to disembark and complete my travels due to rough seas, Joe Scheduled an additional meditation. I can't begin to describe what happened then, but it was the most ecstatic mystical experience I could imagine.
