This page is designed to answer many of the common questions we receive about who we are, what we stand for and how we got to where we are now! Much of the information contained here is also included in much more detail in Jordan’s book U n I, which you can check out in our Spirit Store.
This is an excellent question, and of course there will be a unique answer for each of us individually, because we each have our own spiritual journey we walk. With that in mind, we believe that one of the biggest services that you can do for yourself is to begin a practice of devotion to meditation every single day for at least 30 minutes, if not longer. You will almost instantaneously feel the effects, especially compounding over days and weeks, allowing you to experience some level of mental and emotional elevation, finding a balance in your moods and clarity of thought, increased focus, and heightened willpower and understanding.
For those just beginning their journeys, we also often recommend learning about food, and how different kinds of food affects your body. Check out the Spirit Science 33 series, or potentially watch the documentaries “Forks Over Knives”, and “Food Matters”, both of which are an excellent place to start.
Ultimately, your spiritual journey is your own, and so most of all we recommend spending time learning about whatever it is that you are interested in learning about. There are a plethora of documentaries out there about spiritual concepts, even more books that have been written throughout time, and of course the wisdom of each other, which we can tap into simply by talking to each other, asking questions, and continuing to learn and put what we learn into practice! One of the first places we started in our journeys was through Drunvalo Melchizedek and his books “The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life” and much of the first Spirit Science episodes were based on the information contained within his books.
It’s worth mentioning that at the heart of almost every spiritual tradition is the concept of service to others. When we realize that legendary truth that it’s not all about you, we can realize ourselves in the eyes of others, and can step into embodying a lifestyle that is infinitely giving and gracious towards all walks of life. This practice will bring more peace and love into your life in ways that are truly amazing! You can really open yourself up by learning more about other spiritual practices and what other people believe by watching our Minute Faith series too!
The other primary spiritual topic to be familiar with is forgiveness, for it will be very difficult to find inner peace if we are still holding grudges towards the people that may have done something we disagree with. Taking the time to go back through your memories, finding the events that hurt you, and forgiving yourself and any others involved in that situation will allow you to feel more love in your life, and will help you greatly along your spiritual path. Holding a grudge is like holding onto a hot coal with the intention of throwing it at someone else, ultimately you will only end up burning yourself, and not helping any form of resolution to transpire.
Let us begin answering this question by stating that these are questions that mankind has been asking for thousands upon thousands of years, and is not one that we presume any single individual will have “the answer” for. In fact, we tend to believe that these are questions that each of us will have to explore for ourselves, and the answer of which which most likely change and evolve as each of us live out our earthly experiences here on this planet. If there is a singular answer to this question, we believe the understanding of which could be stated as simply as “from a single source consciousness”, but this answer too is subject to change and evolve as we gain more information as a collective.
We have to remember that we currently exist in a perpetual state of “now”, and so questions like “where do we come from?” and “where are we going” can only be observed from the present moment, regardless of where we are measuring ourselves to exist in time.
With all of this in mind, there are some very unique answers that do come up when we begin to observe the different spiritual practices around the world and compare them with what tends to naturally come through each of our hearts in deep meditations or particularly connected states of being. The question of “why are we here” in particular often is answered with resounding statements of “to learn love”, “to find deeper connections with God”, or “to connect with all of the forms of creation”. There is actually an article we’ve written that goes into one potential answer to this question, which we described as a means by which we all can come to learn and grow together as a species – recognizing that we are all inherently One.
For the questions of “where did we come from and where are we going?”, we have found a particular interest in the stories which are told in the ancient Sumerian tablets, and supplementary material shared by Thoth through Drunvalo in his books “The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life”. We have made a video series about this, which you might be familiar with by the name “The Human History Movie” which can be found here! Today we are working on a prequel to the Human History Movie movie, because there is still lots of information that was left out of the first movie, and we feel it is time to go back and cover this topic in greater detail. If you’re interested in reading these stories, we do recommend the Flower of Life books, or checking out the work of Zecharia Sitchin, predominantly his first book “The Twelfth Planet.”
And even with all of this in mind, we have to once again express that it is up to you to find these answers within you. If this information resonates with you, that’s wonderful! Hold these thoughts in your heart and continue to change and grow as you learn new information. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter what happened a thousand years ago, the only thing that is truly important is how have you learned from your own past experiences and what are you doing with that information, right here and now.
What a great question! Our first answer to this one is that every crystal is special and may require a different method of cleansing then another. For instance, placing your crystals in pure water is one of the easiest ways of recharging them. By simply pouring the water over them, and holding the intention for each one to be cleansed and charged to its fullest potential will support this to transpire. This also works very well with salt water, and for this we recommend using pink Himalayan rock salt. However, certain crystals like selenite are water soluble and will start to dissolve if you attempt to recharge them this way; if you are going to do a water charge, be sure to check if that specific crystal will be safe in water first.
Another approach that is very commonly used is to smudge your crystals. Lay your crystals out on a sacred cloth or special blanket, or even somewhere in nature, and then light some sage, cedar or Palo Santo. Using a feather (though in the absence of one your hand will work as well), waft the smoke over the crystals while holding the intention of the crystals being charged to their fullest potential.
If you have a place you can leave them outside, leaving your crystals out in the sunlight or moonlight is another great way to charge them! Keep in mind that the sun’s energy is very strong and can often bleach or fade the color out of certain crystals if left for too long. Like with the practice of cleansing crystals with water, some crystals will charge better in the sunlight vs moonlight, so if you have a special crystal you are trying to re-charge it is always best to do a little extra research on it to find out what that crystal responds to the best!
Finally, placing your crystals in wild long grain rice will help balance the male and female energies of the crystal, and placing them back into the Earth will strengthen the connection to Gaia and the supportive qualities therein. You can also rub essential oils on your stones and breathe your own energy into them to bring them back up to charge.
However, one of the most essential practices when it comes to the use and care of crystals would be to dedicate them. Whenever you get a new crystal, sit down and meditate with it, knowing the energetic qualities of the type of crystal you hold, set an intention for that stone to work in your life and help you with a specific thing you might be working through. If you have a new piece of rose quartz, you can dedicate it towards helping embody a deeper state of love, or if you have a red jasper, you can dedicate it for helping you get over a specific fear or for greater grounding. These are only a few examples of how you might try and dedicate your crystals, and the possibilities are truly endless; we are limited only by our ability to think of new ways of using them.
In fact, it is happening! This meditation has actually sort of evolved over time too. Today it is not only a water meditation, but a water fast! Every Sunday, our team does a fast where we abstain from food to purposefully honor the water in our bodies, the water on the planet, and the nourishment and life we all draw from it. Fasting is actually very beneficial both for the body and spirit, and you can read our articles about the practice here.
This fast is often water only, but we have a very open attitude towards it, and subscribe to the practice of “do what feels right”. Sometimes we’ll have juices, teas, or other liquid beverages, generally without fiber. On occasion, this fast will become a dry fast, where we will consume no food OR liquid throughout the day, and you can read about dry fasting here.
With that in mind, we have heard from many people that doing a water fast is not an option, or at least on that specific day. We would like to extend the invitation that regardless of your fasting practices, meditating on the water of the planet and raising our awareness of just how incredible water is, is tremendously beneficial not only to ourselves but to the world; but if you are willing and able to join us in spirit on our Sunday fasts, we are so thrilled to have you with us!
Shungite. This is one of the best crystals for infusing into your water as it is specifically a stone for purifying and cleansing, so it works great for making crystal water! This is because its molecular structure is mostly made up of carbon atoms and is able to suck free radicals out of the body. We are not joking about this, the guy who discovered Shungites effect on water actually won a Nobel Prize for his work. Seriously, you can read about it here!
With that in mind, virtually all of the crystals that don’t dissolve in water can be used to make Spirit Water! You can create different crystal elixirs by mixing and matching stones together, for instance if you added shungite, citrine and rose quartz to your water you would be making an elixir of pure, abundant love! You can explore them simply by looking up the properties of stones, and applying those qualities to the water you’re adding them to. Feel free to mix it up and find the stones that resonate best with what you need in your life right now but always take the extra time to look up the specific stones you are intending on using first. You must be very sure that they are not going to dissolve, or create a toxic reaction in water, such as with Selenite or Malachite.
Hello! First we would like to express gratitude and love for writing this question to us, you are not alone; this feeling is shared among a great deal of the population, and probably all of us at some point in our lives.
We recommend to start by taking a deep breath; much of the suffering we experience in life can be created by losing our focus on the present moment. Returning to a state of deep breathing will instantly begin balancing the energy in your body, and the longer you can maintain it, the more centered you will become. The next thing you might observe within yourself is whether or not you are forcing something that was not meant to be. Many of the things in our lives that break down or dissolve into frustration happen because they were not in our best interest for it to continue in this way.
For example, let’s say that you had a job that you were fired from, or a relationship that ended poorly; if these things were not in alignment with the highest purpose for your soul, wouldn’t it be better for everyone that they didn’t continue on in the way you had planned? Much of our suffering stems from expectations or attachments to something happening in the way that we want it, and when that doesn’t play out our attachment itself is what causes us grief.
It’s quite often that we get caught up with this material world, losing sight of what we are here to accomplish as souls; if you are not getting enjoyment and fulfillment from your work or your life, then chances are you are trying to force something that isn’t fulfilling to you your highest calling.
And while yes, you could probably continue to struggle and force reality into bending under your will if you push hard enough, but there is always an easier path if you look for it… not to mention, even if you did force something to come into your life, it would probably not last because it might not actually be in alignment with the higher flows of the universe.
What all of this boils down to is that by really listening to the calling in your heart, you will be able to naturally make the right decisions and know fully what would be the best pursuit for your life, and not be swayed by the allure of the ego or other material pleasures. Sometimes this means giving up things that we have become attached to, but by letting go of these attachments we make room for much more fulfilling experiences to come our way.
“Don’t cling to a mistake just because you spent a lot of time making it”
“Be like water”
Yes, most certainly! This is the new website from the original creator, founder, and owner of Spirit Science, Jordan David! There are a number of different pages or sites out there who have copied the name “Spirit Science”, many of which have even copied the Spirit Science art… but there is only one Patchman, and this is his new home!
There have been many ideas and different projects that we have started over the years, but we have finally solidified a plan to help create this massive shift on Earth we have always dreamed of, and are working to make this dream a reality! Right here, right now!!
We chose the name for this website to be the central hub for the many projects we have in the works, including Spirit Shirts, Patch Tarot, and our other video series such as Patch Parables, Everyday Magical Things, Minute Faith and the Spiritside Chats!
We wanted to bring everything back to the core, what you might call the heart center, to find how all the different “flavours” of spirituality fit and work together. We then found that the traditional 7 chakra system worked perfectly! Thus we needed a central location to display the unity between all faiths, and the new metaphysical understandings as discussed in Spirit Science.
As we continue to create beautiful and inspiring content, now you can join us in finding out how all of it links together in one central location. Spirit Science Central!
Regardless of your connections with us, you have the power to change the world in any way that you can imagine! Where your focus goes, energy flows, and by taking an interest in whatever illuminates your heart, and learning about the things that call out to you, you begin moving in the direction that your soul truly wants to go.
From there, you will begin meeting all kinds of people who share in the same interests as you, and get involved in projects that resonate with you. If you set your intention to be apart of projects that uplift human consciousness, then you will naturally find yourselves beginning to do so!
Take the concept of “if you want to change the world, start by changing yourself” seriously. You can start by looking at the things you do in your everyday life and see if your actions represent the world you are trying create. If you have thoughts like “I know shouldn’t be doing this thing, but I am going to do it anyway” or “…but I still want to”, and then you still take the action that you knew was not in your best intention, you will be setting yourself up for more of the same old experiences. Follow your heart and listen to what your conscious tells you, over time your life will change and your new vibration will be stronger and a brighter light to help in this global shift!
To get involved with us directly, the easiest way to join in the movement is through supporting our vision on Patreon! We are working on a wide array of projects and greatly appreciate all the love and support we continue to receive, to help make this dream a reality!
Once you have signed up on Patreon you will be able to message us directly, and we will be sure to respond to you as soon as we can! We also host video calls with our patrons to talk about what we are doing in the studio and all manner of spiritual topics! If you would like to learn more you can visit our Patreon page here!
After creating Spirit Science, getting the various social media channels and original website established, Jordan had found himself working with a small team of people in California for several years. There were many different projects being started and worked on, which didn’t allow for a focus on the continuous creation of Spirit Science episodes.
Some of the people closest to Jordan gained control of the Spirit Science social media pages and in 2016, their collaboration ended with Jordan being completely removed from the very thing he created. They insisted that they were the owners of the Spirit Science, and Jordan went home to Canada.
Upon returning home, Jordan began work to recreate Spirit Science back into what it was originally intended to be, and worked hard to establish a new team which would be able to correct the mistakes that were made, repair the relationships that were damaged, and see the community come together once again!
Some time after Jordan was removed from the social media accounts, the original Spirit Science Facebook page was deactivated, (we believe it was reported for publishing too much spam, but this is just a guess). About a month or so later, Jordan was connected with someone who worked at Facebook, who assisted in returning the page back to him.
While we have been able to secure the original Facebook page, Instagram and twitter pages, the original website still remains in the hands of Jordan’s previous team. In light of this, Jordan and his new team have been pouring their hearts into this rebirth, to make something that genuinely supports the original mission and intention behind Spirit Science, and to create content that uplifts, educates, and inspires the world.
If you would like to read more details about the specific events and what happened with Spirit Science, Jordan has been chronicling his experiences into a book as a form of meditation to support his own healing on this journey. These memoirs are available on the Spirit Store in the second part of “U n I – The Spirit Science Book”, available here.
In order to properly answer this question, we actually have to take a step back and look at something much bigger than just a simple t-shirt, and explore truly “why do we believe what we believe?” For many of us, we believe a t-shirt should be very inexpensive, but the reason for that is largely because we are used to getting products that may have exploited human workers or our planet’s natural resources in order to produce the cheapest product.
We decided to take a different approach, and specifically went out of our way to create more than just a t-shirt, but wearable art made from the finest materials, embedded with crystals, and crafted by hand as a labor of love.
Spirit Shirts is essentially a non profit venture and uses its surplus to further achieve its purpose and mission, rather than distributing the income to the organization’s shareholders.
We source quality organic bamboo fabric for our shirts and support fair trade labor in this process which is more expensive than a mass produced cotton shirt made in a sweatshop. Our shirts are handmade with a manual printing press, which takes more time than factory manufacturing and as a result to reimburse the loving souls who make our shirts cost more then it would otherwise. Our shirts are also infused with magical crystals! This process includes taking the time to hand grind the crystals into a fine powder so they can fit through the screen and become embedded into the shirt. This not only increases the shirts cost due to the crystals that need to be obtained for each shirt, but also because of the time required to make the crystal powder.
Finally, as our shirts are being made by our amazing friend Chris from Australia, these shirts will have fully traveled around the world before they are made available on our store. The shipping cost of this quite high and we do our best to source environmentally responsible shipping methods which again ups the cost. As the Spirit Shirts and Spirit Studios continues to evolve, we plan on opening up more local facilities around the world so that shirts can be made and sold in each global region.
Our goal with these shirts is the highest quality and the highest vibration we can produce, and truly – you get what you pay for! You will really feel the love and uplifting intention in each and every shirt, and we have received countless testimonials that validate this to be true.
