Healing Origins: Self Care and Inner Transformation

There is something much deeper going on in this election….

Again I do not comment on politics usually but I am seeing somethings that are very troubling this election cycle, beyond the normal nasty reteroic.

The energy of the past few yrs. reminds me of the time when Lincoln was president, a huge divide existed then  and still exists now and the racial issues still persist.

BUT the energy has shifted in some dramatic ways. First, when President Obama was elected, we all had great hope that deep change would be made and sadly much of that was stymied by the divisiveness & agendas of certain members of congress. The senator from KY was a key player in this.

So anger, frustration and disappointment have become large factors in this election.

And the underlying energy of division is also exemplified by the fact that a woman is running for the highest office in our land.

This represents a fundamental shift in energy ….. the white male is no longer the sole governing form of power and they are deeply afraid that their power will be subsumed. They hate Hillary for being a woman and cannot abide that a woman could be in charge.

Neurology studies have found that when a woman speaks it triggers a response in men’s brains that takes them back to their childhood, where their mother was the person in charge. So woman are labeled by men as shrill etc not based on their character  but based their brains response.

Linguistics shares that little boys at play are more into one-upmanship ( hierarchical thinking ) while girls tend to find similarities and commonality ( non hierarchical thinking)… this too is playing apart in the energy we are seeing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8yhGIft8Q8

Further on a more spiritual level the energy for decades has been moving from power driven leveled  hierarchical systems to a more fluid, inclusive and spiraling non-hierarchical system. To understand these two ideas  think of a set of stairs vs  a drop of water that ripples out into a pool.

The old hierarchical system was governed by male energy and the fluid encompassing spiral is more aligned with the female energy. So we are in the midst of this deep change energetically and the male energy is kicking and screaming as it’s power is released, so that a more balanced synergy of the male and female energies can combine and aspire to something new.

That a woman is running is not a surprise, nor is it surprising to see the negative male energy on the opposing side.

This negative divisive power driven bullying force that has consumed us is no longer the energy we need , nor it is an energy that is aligned with our time.

In any transition of energy we need stability, civility and a marriage of the male and female in balance is communion with each other so that the negative shadow does not take over.

We are at a precipice and we need to keep in mind and ask the question within ourselves… what model do we want to have to govern our nation….. a force of fear-based negativity that dominates or a stabilizing force that encompasses the whole & allows for the dynamic to change.

Fear will break us apart…. and as the Civil War showed us we are stronger together than apart.

What is your choice….. can you balance your inner male and female and step into this new energy?

Visualization Practices for Chemotherapy ~ Changing your Mind -Changing your Body

January 16th, 2014 Posted in Mind-body Healing, Self Help Tags: ,

Instructions and Visualization Practices

You can do the first meditation when you feel yourself or your energy pulling in and your heart contracting. This constriction often happens when you are in hospital and being shuffled around from place to place or having multiple tests done in one day. Your energy tends to contract in because you are experiencing pain or feeling unheard. If you can consider that each person, helping and serving you, is administering LOVE this can help you to relax and open the body to the healing being offered. (Challenging I know but a good practice.)

Meditation for Maintaining your Space

Imagine a ball of light just below your navel, it is luminous and shines like the sun. You can play with this ball of light; imagine you can spin it left and right & front and back. See this ball of light expand from the size of an orange to the size of a grapefruit or even bigger if you like.

Feel this vital energy ball fill your abdomen with luminous light and see and imagine it expanding upward into your chest. Envision and see this light filling the area around your heart and lungs with this luminous light. It fills your heart, lungs, upper torso and heart chakra with energy and vitality.

Here’s a hint that can help: Imagine this light ball is like a water balloon, as it bursts open see its light spread out in all directions as one big splash.

Another Trick for Building Energy

You can also open your hands and ask source/spirit to fill your hands with energy, like sand in an hourglass your hands fill with energy. Sometimes this energy will feel warm or cool. Then when your hands are full imagine that you can take this energy and place it into your belly and your heart. This will help you build and maintain your personal energy.

Meditation for Taking in the Light Energy of the Medicine as Luminous Healing Light to Purify Your Blood and Karma

When you are having chemotherapy, imagine that the medicine you are being given is an elixir or nectar of the gods. This can counteract any negative ideas you may have about the medications you are taking. See the medicine spread through your blood stream. And as it does it becomes clear luminous light that lovingly vaporizes any cancerous cells held within your body.

This luminous crystal-like light is strengthening and balancing your cells bones and tissues and nourishing your body. Do not let doubt cloud your mind or imagination. Focus instead and imagine that this luminous healing light effortlessly vaporizes all the cancerous cells in your body.

Your chemotherapy and medicines can become liquid crystalline light that removing all traces of both cancer cells and tumors thus making room for healthy red and white blood cells.

Instructions for Working with Physical Discomfort & Emotional Pain.

This is so important and a vital key to understanding how to work with pain. Pain is contraction——If you can relax your body pain will subside. If you can relax and let go of your fears your body and mind will relax. Your body follows your mind. (Really, I have used this for years)

If you can realize that pain, anxiety, fear, doubt, anger and sadness are contracting energies this is a huge step into healing. Try this, instead of tightening the muscles and closing yourself off, when you feel pain or powerful emotions, just breath in deeply and relax the muscles and your thoughts. If your body is in a relaxed state it cannot hold onto the pain, fear or doubt. When your body relaxes the pain and emotions can dissolve into space.

So, when you first feel pain and your body tightening, notice where you feel this tension and gently examine it. See if it has a color, if it is hot or cold and stay present with the discomfort instead of avoiding it. Then breathe into it and as you breath in and out, feel your body begin to relax. The pain will dissolve and subside as you let go of the fear of the pain. (This too may be challenging but once you develop your ability to observe your body’s reactions, the pain you are feeling will change.)

Memories of helplessness and vulnerability may surface. If this happens you can investigate this too. Ask yourself where you have felt these emotions before and also notice any areas in your body that are tense when you feel these emotions. Allow and give space to your experience, let your mind float and see what arises in your mind’s eye.

It is important to follow the first thing that comes into your mind, as this is your intuition speaking. Feel into your feeling or memories, gently touch them, and allow yourself to understand them more fully than ever before And as understanding dawns you can use the elements of fire, water, or wind to burn and wash these memories & emotions away. Also see a clear luminous light, like that of 100,000 suns, vaporize any residual energies from these memories, emotions and beliefs.

This way you release the energies and traces from your present and past and let your mind, body and heart experience a new found spaciousness as you release emotional pain that has been taking up space within your body.

Healing is also an opportunity to discover how much you are loved, how others care for you and that receiving that care and love is your heritage and birthright.

A Thought about Radiation Treatment

Think of radiation as luminous light nothing more nothing less. It floods your being with light that enlightens you and fills your being with vitality and healing. It also has the capacity to erase from your cells, bones and tissues any unconscious negative energy, emotions or beliefs associated with your well-being and health.

Dis-ease Another Perspective

Disease and illness can be great teachers. Fighting illness and disease is the most common approach but what if you sent unconditional love and mercy to your body instead. When love flows in life there is a natural openness and relaxation that takes place. Your brain is filled with neurochemicals called endorphins and these endorphins can ameliorate pain. So love is the key.

Decades ago when I studied with Hawaii’an healers they taught just that… to send love, care and blessings to wounds and illness. By sending calm loving thoughts, and encouragement to the body the vibrational energy actually changes. The patterns of stress that the body holds are released and this opens up an opportunity to heal like never before.

Illness becomes an illuminating guide or teacher when viewed in this way, allowing you to heal what has gone unnoticed and unhealed in your life. I encourage you to try this.

Always be gentle and easy with yourself, know that the child within you is scared, as is the adult, and take care of that part of yourself. Also without a doubt that you are surrounded night and day by love… from your family, friends and the inexhaustible compassion of God and all the Buddhas.

My Wish

May these practices be of benefit to you and to all sentient beings. May you find peace and realize your true nature, and may you be free from pain and suffering.

 

Healing Symptoms by Working with Past Life Memory

In 1991 for the first time in someone other than myself I saw how past life memories can grip us and how physical symptoms can manifest as a result.

Lynn a student of mine came to class wanting to understand why her heart was beating so erratically and irregularly. She has been to the emergency room many times in the last few months and knew it was more than the lack of prenatal manganese that the doctors has told her was the cause of her hearts rapid and irregular beat.

She never imagines what would happen next, but her heart boomed as she walked to the door of class like never before on that wintery night. Perhaps it was fear–perhaps it was something else entirely.

We began class with the usual meditations to ground center and connect with ones inner knowing then since the class was exploring and working directly with the organ systems we naturally began with the heart that night.

The meditation was a simple one. I gently instructed people to connect with their hearts beat then guided them to go back in 10 year increments and visit the hearts of their past. Listening for anything the heart and body wanted to share with them, and see if there were any patterns of holding at the different time in their lives.

As I led the group in this process Lynn zoomed through this life and was whisked to a memory that shook her to the core. Here is what she remembered and felt in every detail.

Immediately she felt cold stone at her back and she saw the night sky filled with stars, she realized she was lying on a stone slab on her back, surrounded by her tribe. She knew she was being sacrificed to the gods and that she would never reach adulthood. She was about  to enter puberty, life was just about to begin for her.

Things became intense for her when she saw a man with a silver bracelet and a dagger in his hand standing poised to strike. She was frightened and did not feel this was an honor as she elders said it was. As he plunged the knife expertly into her chest, and removed her heart, offering it to the gods and taking a bite of her heart before offering it to the tribe. She watched this scene from above and felt a presence of woman singing to her as she spirit left her body. She said later that she understood how heart surgery felt after this experience.

As I asked everyone to return from this journey and come back to waking consciousness, each emerged with stories their hearts had reveled to them. Lynn shared what she remembered, felt and saw and as she spoke she realized that the man in her vision/memory was her boyfriend with whom she lived.

She said he too wore a wide silver bracelet in the present like the one she saw in the past. She was awestruck. But the most amazing thing she said was that her heart was quiet now, it was not beating rapidly or irregularly and she breath more deeply than ever before.

Lynn ‘s experienced an incredible release that night and regained a piece of her personal eternal story that calmed her heart and over the nest four months of class and 1-1 sessions her symptoms disappeared as she understood her relationship to the man she loved like never before.

Your body, as embodied spirit, is your greatest gift.  It sets you apart from other sentient beings, and makes you uniquely able to heal old wounds, memories and emotions by working directly with your body and consciousness.

You can discover not only who you are, but who you have been. This knowledge, which I call the” body of experience” lives within your cells, bones, tissues and chakra system. And this vast pantheon of info-energy can help you connect the dots in your life to both your recent and ancient past. Once you can see the patterns held within your body, as energy, emotions and beliefs, you have the opportunity to change these imprinted memories and traces from within‑ just like Lynn did.
