If quantum physics resonates with you, you’ll like this post. Richard Gordon developed a method called Quantum Touch. This exercise is based around imaging a vortex of energy in the region of your heart. By concentrating on positive, nurturing thoughts, you can actually influence your surroundings in a positive, healing way. This can be your own body or the people around you or even the universe as everything is energy. This concept is also described by Bruce Lipton, a great scientist who combines his background and way of thinking as a stem-cell biologist with spiritual concepts wich cannot be explained with conventional science. His book Biology Of Belief has been a real eye opener for me.
As a photographer, I am fully aware of the energy field in and around me and how it affects the photoshoot. I experienced a prime example this week as I was doing a shoot with Joa. Both our energy were totally synchronised and that resulted in a great photo shoot with a lot of keepers.
I recently walked though the National Park De Hoge Veluwe and noticed some remains of which I thought were some bunkers. I got pulled towards it and sat for quite some time in complete stillness. The sun burned on my face and all sorts of sounds emerged from the woods. Later on, when I walked back to my car, I saw a plate on which the story of the remains is told. Helene Kröller-Müller and her husband were keen art collectors and had big plans creating a huge museum in the National Park but when the Great Depression kicked in, they were forced to suspend the build. What supposed to be a manifestation of their love for art, ended in building blocks scattered around. It is now part of the National Trust and the art collection in what is now the Kröller-Müller Museum (also called the ‘second home of Van Gogh’).
This place has an energy which truly resonates with my being….I can’t explain it, but I treasure the feeling nevertheless.
The man pictured on this photograph is Ty Taylor of the band Vintage Trouble . They are supporting ACDC on their tour right now and visited Rotterdam on their own where they performed at the Metropolis Festival. I was totally blown away by their performance but managed to take some pictures though. They are not only excellent musicians but great performers as well, making them an awesome subject for my photography. They all expressed so much intensity that it transferred to the audience. I was jumping and moving around to get rid of all the excess energy I got from their presence and performance. Music is such a beautiful thing!
