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.

—The gift of 2012—Hear the Stories and Song of your Soul

Each and every one of you has a story that is remembered by your consciousness,  your cells, bones and tissues.

When you discover the narrative of your past and story of your soul you can find aspects of your self and past life selves that can help you understand your symptoms, relationships and emotional blocks.

As you reconnect the dots  your true self comes alive and into balance. Harmony, power, truth and beauty manifest.

Balancing and remembering allows for the roots of old wounds, both physical and emotional to finally be laid to rest. Struggles evaporate.

MARRYING THE INNER FEMALE AND MALE IS KEY NOW. You are ripe for this  for bringing your intuition and intellect into alignment with  full awareness. The time is an ending only in that we are releasing an old way of being. Forces are aligning that make deep healing and empowerment possible.

This is the challenge and the opportunity  of 12.21.2012.

To find a new ways of being , beyond the old paradigms, to connect the dots to discover your ancient source self and heal and release the duality that has existed for eons.

Bringing light and energy into the bodymind  and building new neuro pathways, so you can be embodied  like never before—-in awareness with  cosmic  and individual consciousness singing with stillness and power.

This is the gift of the transformational moment we are in. Let go of your past. Lay down outdated ways of reacting both in your mind-body and nervous system.

Take a deep breath and breathe in the stillness—–the light of the stars in the night sky. And become ONE within your self and manifest this unity with all that is around you.

You are a spiritual being that has embodied on earth at this time – you are meant to know what it means to be embodied spirit.

The energy of the primordial wisdom is all around us —drink it in and allow for the energy of change within your cells, bones and tissues to course thru you and into the earth.

Visualize  a golden light of 10,000 suns radiate into your being and flow down your spine and into your legs and out your feet. See the energy flow into the earth along a grid that connects to the matrix within the earth.

Feed the earth with your energy and love and dip into her stillness and bring that back into your body. Be the bridge between spirit and the earth you are meant to be. And feel the deep connection that exists between all beings.

See the old structures melt away— see and feel compassion and peace replace fear. Imagine  a new earth where truth beauty and peace abide in fullness.

Transcending Family History

Recently I have been seeing the most interesting phenomena, generational emotional pain and patterns that pass from one generation to the next. Not only are similar emotions popping up but there seems to be a theme that is occurring as well. The patterns can be emotional and they may even manifest physically. Remarkably too is when one person with in the ancestral line works with the energy of the problem or emotion it changes for the entire living group .
By making personal changes , the whole soul of the family can change and the predominant issue or pain within the group changes. More later about this. It fascinates me.

What do you think? Can you see any patterns that cross generations?

The Turning of the Year and the Heart of the Winter Solstice.

I was talking to my students this past wk end about this Iron Tiger year that we have been in and how this has been affecting us energetically. Here is what I have noticed.

Years ago I had the chance to interact with tiger cubs and a big female white tiger at Albuquerque zoo. Tigers are known to live much of their lives alone, except to mate.   The energy f these great cats is one of energy of isolation, patience and fierceness. These qualities have been a part of the energy dynamic this past year and we have seen it in action. Many of you may have felt isolated this past year. But there I good news!

On Feb 3 rd, Chinese New Year rings in and the year of the Iron Rabbit begins. Rabbits live in warrens are more social than tigers. My hope is that based on this energy change  we will have a year of more cooperation and consensus.

Isolation is necessary to discern who we are and what is important to us. We need that quiet self- reflection. But we are a human family and we need to also step back into relationship to someone other than ourselves.

I hope this new year reawakens our sense of community as we move out of isolation. Let us find common ground again. Cooperation is key, with this, we can get things done and moving forward again. The energy is posed to help us do this.

The element iron is about grief and sorrow, as well as, being a weapon of war. As we move thru this iron cycle over the next 8 years we are encouraged to process our grief and examine the martial nature within our society and within ourselves. Letting go of our wounds and finding peace within ourselves will reflect back into society, of which we are a part.

Let’s find our community this coming year—- like minded people who love and support us. My wish is for each of you is to discovery your larger human family and your place in it.

My husband and I have been reading  a set of  books by Marion Zimmer Bradley, which feature the goddess and the ancient ways of the goddess. As I gazed at the full moon lunar eclipse that happened on the solstice this came to mind. First, I reflected on the fact that an eclipse like this had not happening in 372 years ago. It was remarkable to think back to how our ancestors might have felt seeing an eclipse like this one. And also to rteflect on how the world has changed over the centuries.

Personally as the moon went dark on the first day of the return of the light, I felt that the goddess was also returning, not in the old ways, but that she was reintegrating for the first time in centuries with the solar force of the sun.

This marriage is both powerful and necessary as we balance the forces of the sun and moon, the masculine and feminine , the anima and the animus within ourselves.

This is a a time of reintegration and renewal.

Use this time wisely, vision and dream of wholeness, both personally and collectively. Send out light to those you love and to those who challenge you. Salute them all for they are your teachers !

Happy New Year and Namaste

The Power of Prayer….. Love is the Key!

This past few weeks has been very intense. A dear friend went into the hospital for cancer surgery, and happily the surgery went well and the doctor was exceptionally pleased. Being a very spiritual man and coming from equally devote family, prayers were sent into the heavens spinning light and healing and sending it to my dear friend from the moment we are heard he was sick.

I had sat in meditation doing prayers during the surgery, reassuring his body that it was okay, giving direction and sending love and healing with each breath. Each stitch the doctor stitched became a prayer.

But complications ensued. He hit a crisis point this past Monday and his dear wife called me in tears.

I spoke with my Tibetan teacher and asked that he pray for my friend. I called a fellow healer, who put him into her weekly pray circle, and along with them I went in . I talked to his organs and reignited the energy within his body, soothing and connecting frayed nerves as I spoke to each organ. And low and behold……. on Friday he was released from the hospital.

Prayer and the power words and energy have is so amazing. This energy from all of  us helped turn the tide and move him onto a road of health and healing.

Love is so much a part of the healing process. It is essential!  And our deep emotions can impart even more chi into mix.

So what am I grateful for this thanksgiving…….. for my dear friend’s healing and homecoming and for the power of love in the world and how it can heal …. anything!

I know this in my soul in my bones . Prayer can heal  our bodies, minds and our world.

So what are you grateful for?  Let me know .

You Have Lived Before — Healing Karmic Relationships and Symptoms

There is an intersection within your psyche where past and present meet. Memories from your past sometimes collide with your present and this intersection and  symptoms form and relationships ignite not only with the history of the moment but with the weight of the past as well.

It is beneficial, necessary and imperative to go back to the beginning to understand the present. To find the original cause in order to understand what affects you in the present.

The moment of death carries with it great consequence when you are reincarnated or take birth again and the thoughts, beliefs, hopes, dreams and emotions from that moment are driven into your dying consciousness and move forward within your consciousness, often igniting old problems, fears and even physical symptoms.

This is why past life work and healing can be so evocative and deeply healing. Bringing these emotions to light is a task we must undertake if we are going heal deeply and to be free, free of the karma from our past. This type of healing allows you to let go of your past in the most profound way—.freeing up immense energy that has been stored with your memories and entangles by your emotions.

Clearing the way, by bringing pieces of your story and yourself back together gives you a sense of who you truly are within time and space. It enlarges your sense of who you are and it humbles you and empowers you, simultaneously.

Unwinding the energies from the past allows you to understand and complete relationship issues and resolve symptoms phobias and fears once and for all. It’s as simple as that. Freedom, peace, renewed direction, joy, and a sense of who you truly are —- are the essential gifts of this work.

If you are experiencing symptoms and relationships difficulties that defy traditional therapies you are ripe for this work.  Go to http://www.healingorigins.com or http://www.memory in our bones .com for more details.

You can finally, untangle the emotions, unwind the bound up energy within you and  experience vitality and peace, as you unearth and release the ancient beliefs that drive your experience.

Know yourself, see the truth that lies within your being and solve the mysteries of your life!
