Follow Your North Star to Create Positive Shifts in 2024

How to Embed Your Desired Shifts into Your Energy Body

As 2024 begins to unfold, 98% of all New Year’s Resolutions have, if you can believe the self-help literature, already been broken! To try to counter this trend, the self-help guidance ranges from setting and envisioning clear goals to enlisting “accountability partners” to recognizing and dealing with obstacles to success. All are potentially good strategies. However, can you also embed the desired shifts into your “energy body”?

This is where the Assemblage Point comes in. The Assemblage Point is like your “North Star.” It is an energetic force that directs your actions. The term North Star is often used metaphorically to refer to a guiding principle, goal, or inspiration in a person’s life. It is derived from the actual North Star (Polaris), which has been used for navigation for centuries because of its consistent position in the northern sky. When you refer to your "North Star," you are talking about a constant, unchanging guide that directs your decisions and actions, much like how the North Star guides sailors at sea.

The Assemblage Point is a ball of energy that, if aligned properly, is situated about two feet in front of your body at the level of your heart chakra. You are always walking toward it, both literally and metaphorically. It is attuned to your soul’s highest wisdom about your journey here on Earth. However, experiences can also influence it, for better or for worse. Trauma may throw your Assemblage Point out of physical alignment with your body and may also distort the purity of its connection with your soul’s purpose. On the positive side, you can mobilize your highest intentions for yourself to influence your Assemblage Point.

Here is a way to bring a New Year’s Resolution of your choice (hint: choose one that will make you a better person) into the energy of your Assemblage Point:

  1. To help bring your Assemblage Point into its ideal alignment, bring your arms out as far as you can to the sides.  Take a deep breath. As you let your breath out, very slowly move your arms in front of you until your hands feel pressure (a ball of energy) between your palms. This is your Assemblage Point. If you don’t feel that ball of energy, repeat this frequently (it takes less than a minute) throughout the next few days with the intention of moving your Assemblage Point into this position.

  1. Once you can feel or at least vividly imagine that ball of energy, envision putting your New Year’s Resolution, your intention, into your Assemblage Point. Breathe into this slowly and deliberately several times.

  1. Then, with your palms still facing, lower your hands to your Root Chakra. Now envision the energy of your New Year’s Resolution sitting between your palms. Take a few deep breaths, making this energy strong. 

  1. Next, with an outbreath, slowly bring your palms up the center of your body, like a “zip up,” to your Heart Chakra. Take another deep breath or two. 

  1. Then, with an outbreath, move your palms so they are reaching in front of you to your Assemblage Point. Imagine and feel the energy of your Resolution merging into the energy of your Assemblage Point.

  1. Finally, bring your hands inward and rest them on your heart chakra, with a simple affirmation such as “[Name Your Intention] is now in my energy body and shaping my future.” You can repeat just this part or the entire sequence as frequently as you wish.

Bringing your New Year’s Resolution into your energy body using this simple procedure will support all the other strategies you may use so that your intention becomes part of your future.

Like everyone else reading this e-letter, we are on our own paths of personal evolution. The New Year is an excellent occasion and opportunity to assess progress and initiate next steps. We’ve asked members of our family to describe ways—beyond the Assemblage Point—that they are navigating their own New Year’s Resolutions. Their accounts, and ours, are described below. We think you will find these glimpses into our personal efforts to be interesting and perhaps useful in your own journey.

With love, wishing you a blessed 2024, 

Donna and David

Eden Energy Medicine in Action

Beyond Physical Healing

It’s the start of the year, and it’s a time when so many of us reflect on where we are now and where we want to be a year from now. Most people focus on their mental, emotional, and physical well-being, but what about our spiritual health? When Fritz Varga went to see EEM-CP Gopita Manning, he was looking for help with multiple physical ailments, including hypertension and digestive disorders. What he didn’t bargain for (but gladly received!) went way beyond physical healing.

The Mystery of Life Energy

Our First Publication of 2024 is Here. It’s the Foreword to an Important Book!

Donna and I (David) first learned of Eric Leskowitz in 1999 when he reviewed our book, Energy Medicine, for a prestigious integrative medicine journal. He gave it a glowing appraisal and endeared himself to us forever when he revealed that his primary disappointment with the book was that he didn’t write it. Now, a quarter century later, he has written his own tome on energy healing, and I was honored when he asked if I would write the Foreword.

When we read his review of our book, we wondered: Who is this physician from Harvard Medical School? We quickly discovered that he was already bringing energy medicine into a major Harvard teaching hospital. It would be easy to underestimate the pioneering courage this required back then, introducing the widely ignored or disparaged methods we were just beginning to articulate into one of the world’s top medical institutions. While energy medicine is much more widely embraced within traditional medical institutions today, this shift is partially through Dr. Leskowitz’ tireless dedication.

The Mystery of Life Energy, as I see it, makes 3 major contributions:

1. It weaves into a single tapestry a wide range of disparate and fascinating phenomena, all tied together with the bright thread of life energy, and in a manner that will give some refreshing jolts to the reader’s perspective.

2. It unflinchingly examines each of them from, in the author’s words, “both sides of the aisle”: conventional science and ancient healing traditions that are attuned to the “multidimensional nature of reality.” Few scientists are so steeply grounded in both sides of this gaping chasm (it’s not just an aisle) as to allow them to seriously attempt such a feat. Dr. Leskowitz does it masterfully.

3. In the process, you are taken on a journey in which one of the core paradigm clashes of our culture is highlighted, placed piece-by-piece under the bright lights of reason and experience, and reconstructed in a way that can move the culture—as well as your understanding—forward, informed by both sides of the “aisle.”

The Mystery of Life Energy manages to do all this in a friendly rather than academic tone, leavened with light-hearted humor. It will be published on April 9 but pre-orders are already available.  Find out more and pre-order your copy here

Supporting Health and Happiness Since 1977

Donna Eden started teaching Energy Medicine classes in the late 1970s. Since then, her work has touched millions of people across the globe, introducing them to the healing and restorative power of their body’s own energies.

Her approach hit a cultural nerve, a hunger in people to take charge of their own health and healing through simple techniques that could be easily applied. Donna’s husband, David Feinstein, began to collaborate with her in bringing Energy Medicine into the world. Today, her daughters, Titanya Dahlin and Dondi Dahlin, and their partners all share in the mission.

This small family team is at the hub of a large and growing movement that has become one of the bright lights in holistic health.
