About Lloyd Matthew Thompson
FROM GROWING UP IN a Protestant Christian household to exploring and experiencing many Ways including Buddhism, Shamanism, Paganism, New Age, Catholicism, and good old Life, LLOYD MATTHEW THOMPSON has clearly been shaped by each path in many ways. As the oldest of nine home-educated children, he became accustomed to a self-motivation and independence that drives him to this day, even when surrounded by opposing influences. Whether writing, painting, drawing, or teaching, Lloyd Matthew has committed to and strives to embody and exemplify the mantra he has found at the heart of all things: And the bottom line is Love.
Lloyd Matthew Thompson has written for various metaphysical and holistic blogs and magazines, both locally and globally. He is the author of the nonfiction books THE ENERGY OF GOD, LIGHTWORKER: A CALL TO AUTHENTICITY and ENERGYWORKER: A CALL TO EMPOWERMENT, as well as the fiction works THE HEALER: A NOVEL, ROOT, and AURA: A SHORT STORY. He is currently working on a modern translation of Shantideva's Buddhist classic GUIDE TO THE BODHISATTVA'S WAY OF LIFE and a new yet-to-be-titled novel.
Lloyd lives in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, with his wife, his eighteen-year-old triplets, his eleven-year-old daughter, and his cats named Akasha (the vampire queen), Buffy (the vampire slayer), and the new baby kitten, Figaro "Figgy" Newton (not a cookie). One can simply imagine how these three four-leggeds get along.
It is naturally ingrained in everyone already.
There is nothing that can be done without energy. Each and every one of us works with energy in a multitude of ways every minute of every day.
If everything and everyone is nothing but energy, the fact we can even detect where an object is located shows we can “read” energy. The fact we can then actually pick up the object and move it to another location shows we can work with energy.
Our physical bodies are giant antennas for energy. Each of our senses are picking up the feedback of energy and translating it to our brain and nervous system as scents, sights, tastes, sounds, textures, and feelings. In fact, without energy receptors, we would not be able to operate within this physical plane! We would never be able to find where someone has moved something or built a wall that may be in our way, until we smack into it.
Everyone and everything that has ever existed came from the same energy, yet never left this energy, and still has not left it. Energy may shift and change and move, but it can never be destroyed.
The simple fact that you exist in this form, in this moment, means you are already a natural-born Energyworker.
Covering all bases from being affected by energy to healing with energy, ENERGYWORKER: A CALL TO EMPOWERMENT is a guide the mindful and self-empowered will want to keep handy at all times.
A desperate present.
An inescapable future.
Two separate lives brought together by the interconnected threads of time and destiny are about to change the world forever.
Of that, there is no doubt.
But sometimes a healing and salvation first requires a devastation and destruction in order to begin.
Containing elements of shamanism, quantum physics, and metaphysical phenomena of all kinds, THE HEALER is a story guaranteed to keep you glued to your seat!
This place is hurting.
The winds of this planet are shifting and swirling, bringing Change with each passing moment. For so very many, this Change is extremely difficult to handle. Most people have a resistance to change, which causes tension that can easily spiral into energetic and physical dis-ease. From the global level down to the personal level, there is no one and no thing that is not affected by these changes taking place.
But there cannot not be these changes.
The changes must take place.
Without changing, there would be no... change! Growth and improvement would be eternally at a standstill, forever stagnant, forever wounded.
And what is healing, but changing?
As more and more of our friends and families enter this Change, healers help ease the adjustment as much as possible, and keep the energy flowing.
The intention of this guide is to simply share a possible springboard for you to find your own natural way of being a healer.
You need no fancy modalities, titles, or certificates to be an energy healer in this place and time.
You need only an open Heart, and an open mind.
But what is this reality?
How did he get here?
And why is he here?
Root is an emotional journey of love, fear, loss, and exactly what it means to be alive.

The Root Chakra processes our energies and emotions of fear, survival, foundation, family, and purpose.
Our world around us pressures us to think and act in the same energy it does: discriminate, judge, hate, exclude, reject, fight for our own recognition no matter the cost, and fear anyone and anything different than ourselves.
But every demonstration of the energy of God we have shows that it is a love that loves no matter who, no matter what. It is a love that chooses to love the way the sun shines on both the good and bad without judgment, the way the rain falls on both the kind and unkind without condition.
It’s the sort of love that changes lives.
The energy of God is the free-flowing, unbound freedom to love with abandon. The energy of God is a living, moving, breathing awareness that we live, move, and breathe in. It cannot be fully captured by any set of religious rules or any other sort of regulations—it may find a partial voice and body in a religion or a concept, but it can never be completely embodied within a single box.
Love is a verb, as the old saying goes. Love requires action. Love requires a conduit, a channel.
Where are these channels to come from? How will these channels manifest in this place, in these days?
Are these channels not found in our own hands, in our own feet?
Revisiting the final week in the life of Yeshua—Jesus of Nazareth—THE ENERGY OF GOD is a fresh, modern look at what holy, enlightened love can look like here and now, and what that means for us in our own day and age.
You will find first a more traditional rendering of the text, followed by the updated rendering, and finally an expanded commentary on the updated rendering.
A sadhana is a mantra or prayer focusing on certain qualities you wish to inhabit. You may also recite a sadhana as an opening of a channel or a portal, to simply usher the energy of the specific qualities listed into this world. Meditation on and reflection on a sadhana helps to add those qualities to your own character. Setting the intension for the sadhana to beam out into the world will dedicate it to benefit all things. Many people find great benefits in memorizing sadhanas they connect to, so they are able to recite and be encouraged by these qualities at any time and any place.
A Lightworker is present to change systems, to encourage the evolution of a world, whether that world is seen or unseen.
A Lightworker is born into, surrounded by, and led to wherever needs the power most, whether that need is met easily, or accomplished with blood, sweat, and tears.
A Lightworker will feel the call to do whatever is needed in whatever system they find themselves in—from within that system.
If you are honestly and truthfully doing your absolute best, for yourself and this world around you, then YOU are a Lightworker.

From GOOD NIGHT, NURSE:
This place is called Harmony
This place is called Rest
The cheat to the Test
Here Ashes are breathing
Here Ashes respect
The Fear and the Suff’ring
Here have no effect
Again All are one where
Again All are free
Behind or below or
Above, only Me.

LLOYD MATTHEW THOMPSON refers to the period of his life these
poems were born of as “The Flailing Years.” As he came out of what
he’d been raised with and all he’d ever known, he followed his Heart
through alleys and staircases, struggling to find his way and his Self.
From shifty religions and spiritual concepts to rocky relationships
and family drama, Lloyd sought his truth with every breath.
This collection of poems is neither complete, nor in chronological order.
Poetry that made the final cut were placed into a hat. The Universe
then picked the arrangement, and—as with all It touches—It not-so-
randomly ordered a perfect order.
