Where do emotions come from? Our emotions come from within us. Have you ever had the feeling of emotion well up from within? This space, where emotion is located, is in your greater Kelee®.
The roots of the Kelee date back three thousand years. It means, “having to do with different states of mind.” Translated from Greek and Hebrew, the word Kelee means a vessel or receptacle.
The painful experiences of our past are contained in this space. You can learn to let go of emotions that you have held onto and have caused you heartache by learning to access your mind. When we begin to heal our hurtful emotions trapped within our greater Kelee, we begin to help ourselves.
Healing emotion starts with an understanding of our greater Kelee. Ron W. Rathbun, author and founder of the Kelee Foundation, says, “The greater Kelee is an electrochemical field of energy that flows below the surface of the mind, down to about where your heart is and then turns upward to join the lesser Kelee at the surface to the mind.”
He defines the greater Kelee further, saying, “The greater Kelee is associated with a feeling process, emotion, and matters of the heart. It is also a place where you can enter into mind without the distraction of the brain.”
Understanding the mind is the pathway to begin healing the hurtful emotions of the heart.
Kelee meditation is a practice that shows you how to enter into mind from your greater Kelee. This practice is easy to learn and to begin on your own. It does not require a large amount of time from your day.
The Kelee meditation practice takes five minutes to do: you meditate once in the morning and once in the evening (for optimal results). It is also recommended to take a few moments to record your experience. That is only about 10 to 15 minutes of your day.
Through doing this practice you will notice changes in yourself immediately, or for some it takes a little longer. In three months of consistently doing Kelee meditation, people say, “Things that used to bother me, now do not.” This is a hallmark of doing Kelee meditation.
Dr. Daniel Lee, clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) Medical Center and School of Medicine, teaches Kelee meditation to first- and second-year medical students. These future doctors will have a natural intervention that they can easily teach their patients — doctors teaching Kelee meditation allows us all a way that we can naturally contribute to our own healing.
Dr. Lee says, “Kelee meditation is vital to the education of future physicians. Traditional medical education focuses on the use of pharmaceutical medications to heal the ailments of the physical body but often ignores the effect of the mind on the physical body. Kelee medicine will teach future physicians the importance of how the mind impacts the physical body but also how natural healing can occur through developing the harmony of mind which comes from learning to still one’s mind via Kelee meditation. These new physicians will realize that they can provide better care to their patients when they are more present and not distracted by their own negative thoughts and emotion. This ultimately results in a better patient-physician relationship and an overall improved health care experience for both patients and physicians alike.”
A 2013 UCSD medical study of 47 patients who were taught Kelee meditation found that learning this practice, and regularly doing it twice a day, led to significant improvement in stress, anxiety and depression. The study also showed statistically significant improvement in other areas of mental health, including a wide range of psychological problems and psychological distress, which included a decrease in the intensity of symptoms.
By understanding where our emotions reside — in the greater Kelee — and learning the Kelee meditation practice, you can begin to access your mind. The practice is easy to do — remember, it only takes five minutes twice daily.
Doing Kelee meditation shows the way to get into mind and familiarizes you with what being in mind feels like. Through doing this meditation, you begin to spend more time in your mind. This allows for a balancing of emotions and the natural release of painful experiences from your greater Kelee. So what’s keeping you? Who wouldn’t want to feel better? Begin doing Kelee meditation today.
