The Art of Healing

Healing the Planet ~ Part 1

A journey of healing begins and ends with healing the self, but as the experience of the self expands so too does the practice of healing. Inevitably and inextricably this path leads to healing all beings and the planet Earth itself.

Human beings move primarily from a core of self-serving necessity. In the beginning this will be realized as providing for our basic survivalist needs – food, shelter, money and so on. Catering for and supplying our emotions and senses is our goal and it is usually when these goals have been saturated to a point that we begin to reflect. This reflection occurs because a space has appeared within our consciousness in between the experiences that had once so enamored us. This space is an awareness of the essential pain, emptiness and fear that we have been trying to fulfill and at the same time run away from. The depth of this space is such that it has an awareness of real depth, as if it has existed for a very long time, and yet there is still an awareness that a solution exists somewhere.

Experiencing inner peace means coming to a real understanding of our pain, emptiness and fear, but we must see with clear eyes what the “self” is before we can hope to be whole and true. Whole healing, peace and the true self are the same peak and any of these paths will lead to these. The reason for this is because when we connect to our true self we perceive through the senses of understanding. Similarly peace occurs when we meet each aspect of our consciousness with understanding and healing in itself is recognition and response which is also understanding. Inner peace is practiced by seeking and exploring each facet of our mind and body and being completely open. Healing is practiced by seeking that which we perceive needs healing and to listen and communicate. Finding the true self is practiced by training the senses and developing focus and concentration. Initially these paths will have distinct signatures. One may seem very disciplined and strict, another may seem open and intuitive and the other still and quiet. Further development tears open the curtains to how we believed the path was meant to go and we are enveloped by new and often contradictory truths.

What is strict and disciplined will need to evolve and change when the purpose of our development changes. To truly explore we must eventually open our minds to new opportunities, this will not occur if we are too rigid and stuck to our path.

The path that is still and quiet must become loud and chaotic if we are too truly find peace, because real peace is found unconditionally and in all things not just in the presence of contrived and created peace.

Open intuition must also know resistance in order to learn how to sustain and direct a path of intention and creation.

The attributes that reflect parts of our consciousness that require understanding, recognition, response and direction are found by connection with our external world and people and observing the connection where it occurs: the physical and mental levels of our mind.


The Art of Healing

Healing is essentially effective communication. It is an interaction of information in the form of intention, electrical signals and bio-chemicals to the physical and mental consciousness. The purpose of the communication is to facilitate an awareness of whole or holistic health. Whole health means that every level of being, mind, body and spirit is operating with harmony and with ease – which is also to say that it is free of dis-ease. Harmony too is more than a meaningless esoteric concept, it means that there is a balance of tension and relaxation, that mental stresses, desires and aversions are not causing feelings of discontent, and that the body is able to process the information and energies that it is receiving. Each area of consciousness has a way of expression. When we learn to listen and speak in the languages of our consciousness we gain the ability to realize holistic health.
Healing is integral to the path of empowerment. Many of us realize after a time of walking this path that the reason that started them on the path in the first place was a feeling of separation from their self. This perception of separation is the reason for the sense of sadness and loneliness that many of us feel – whether it is perceived as a flicker or is all pervading. Whole health brings integration. With sustained intention we bring our consciousness back to an awareness of oneness. We bridge the gap between feeling sadness and knowing inner peace. When we bridge this gap then illusion begins to dissolve. The same principle is applied in many types of energetic, natural, Shamanic and Metaphysical Healing modalities. We are simply using a medium of energy to guide our bodies and minds to connecting with what wholeness feels like. We do this again and again. There is a learning occurring on different levels. It may feel like on one level our body and mind is learning what wholeness feels like from a different part of our consciousness, but it can often feel like this “teaching” part of our consciousness is also learning to “listen” and feel for what to show the “student” parts! The learning, development and understanding is occurring on many levels and dimensions.

The art of healing is developed into fine art worthy of the greatest galleries through practice and refinement. We need to observe the effect of our communication.

Is it doing something? What is it doing? How long is it sustaining effect for? Could we increase the effect?

The communication is much like any communication. Say we are washing the car. We throw a cup of water on the car. What effect? Have we achieved our ends? Perhaps we need to grab a bucket or a hose. How about another example. Let’s say we are making friends with someone. We come across one way. Observe. They seem to be backing away. Is this what we wish to achieve? Perhaps we can try something else. They seem to be smiling. Is this what we wish to achieve? The exact same principles apply in healing. The only differences are learning to listen to the language spoken and learning to express the languages which are effective for positive change.

Everyone is capable of being a healer. We are all natural healers. One only needs to see the reaction of a parent seeing their new born child to know that the child has the essence required to open and nurture a heart. The love that is invoked here is emotional healing. Realizing our healing abilities on a broader level takes knowledge, understanding and of course practice. The art of energy healing is beginning to gain acceptance in society as doctors, nurses and hospitals are undergoing training or recruiting Reiki practitioners. As a society we are beginning to realize that instead of flat out rejecting “new” claims to whole health, that we have little except our well worn beliefs to lose by seeing if they can step up to the claim. Granted there are practitioners who cannot do what they would claim, but I put this down to ego, pride and lack of honest appraisal. The truth is that technique alone does not make a healer, just as learning a recipe does not make a master chef. Development comes through experience and humble sincerity. Time has allowed those with real dedication to realize their skills and ability and the world is beginning to see and hear about healers who are true masters of the art. This development will have a profound effect on spiritual, personal and societal development. As more people begin to learn and really master the ability to affect energy, minds will changes, lives will change and the world will change. This is an exciting time.


Esoteric Alchemy

Esoteric Alchemy is the study and understanding of cause and effect. By learning how to move our mind and consciousness in and out of reality, mind, body and spirit we gain the ability to shift and transform energy and therefore reality.

The art of Esoteric Alchemy begins by learning to trace the paths of reality as they are. Through experiencing these paths and being guided through the doorways that lie within each path, we learn how to discover reality as it is not. Once again we learn to trace these paths. We experience and then are guided through the doorways that allow us to understand how reality as it is not can exist. We learn the rules and how they relate to the rules of our own reality. We experience the opposing “tensions” that allow contradiction to exist.

As the body and mind is guided to experience multiple, contradictory and tangential realities and experiences, the consciousness is directed and made to expand. Training in Esoteric Alchemy is facilitated by pulsing or directing frequencies through specific “gates.” These gates are the waypoints of the personality as it exists at both the conscious and sub-conscious levels. In some ways it is similar to having a good rapport. There is a reciprocal communication happening and we understand how to feed into the conversation. Esoteric Alchemy takes this to an energetic level. The results are that clients can be taken on guided tours with their Higher Self, group astral projection journeys, shown directly how to heal and remove emotional blocks and turn on and off psychic senses.

The main advantages to developing Esoteric Alchemy with a partner or teacher is that the teacher’s role is to watch the inter-changing energies and direct the energies that are needed to facilitate shifts. The client or other partner’s intellectual mind need not be involved to a great extent and for the most part they are able to simply experience the trip. The benefits are much like being a passenger in a car. We are able to see how to get back there as well as take in the little details. The other advantage with a teacher of course is that they will have been there to a far greater depth and will be able to know exactly what is needed to move further, to return and to facilitate intellectual, emotional and physical comprehension of what has occurred.

It is important that the partner or client who is developing their consciousness in this way is given the appropriate support. Awareness, knowledge and experience is one thing, being able to accept and reconcile the experiences is another. Both are necessary in order to sustain inner peace, happiness and a sense of empowerment. Grounding meditation and stretching are two of the easiest methods to facilitate harmonious integration, but those of us interested in serious development would benefit from working with acupressure and meridian therapy, transpersonal psycho-therapists and experienced healers and meditation therapists. This being said if you are keen to explore the basics of Alchemical Healing find a willing partner and begin to play with some of the various energetic techniques that have been outlined in this site in previous articles. Here are some tips for practice:

Only practice with a willing partner.

Bring yourself to a centered and grounded state of mind. Experiment with the difference in practice when you do not center yourself first.

Take your time scanning and observing the inner energy of your partner.

When ever you “remove” an energy make sure to “replace” it with a new energy or the old pattern will return. You may prefer to think of the whole process as transforming the energy.

At the end of the session bring yourself back to a centered state. Clean and clear your energy body and mind. Experiment with how it feels if you do not clear your consciousness. Observe the differences in energy and overall body feel.

These are basic guidelines for Esoteric Alchemy. The practices themselves are developed in a similar way as any relationship of communication is developed – time and practice. Smooth, articulate speech and rapid understanding, the ability to communicate in other “languages” through learning other techniques and being guided through journeys – all of this comes through experience and immersing ourselves in deeper wells of understanding.


The Power of Grounding

The essence of grounding is to be able to integrate and use all your knowledge and energies effectively in every day life. Often esoteric arts can leave a practitioner tired and emotionally drained because they spend so much time in the higher or more subtle vibrations. As I discussed in the articles on the “Physical Path” the body must be allowed time to adapt to new frequencies through stretching, relaxation and connecting to earth. In other cases where people are over training, concentrating on physical exercise, stopping meditations on higher frequencies and eating good solid food will help to ground them.

It pays to be aware, sensitive and honest about our progress. It’s ultimately self-sabotaging to go hard into practices only to burn out and need to take time off for weeks or months. This can be avoided by implementing grounding exercises regularly. I’d suggest 3 times a week for as little as 5 minutes, but as always each individual must determine and feel for themselves what is required.

Connecting to the deep frequency of the planet helps us to feel solid and stable – and so we become solid and stable. It helps us integrate our spirituality into our everyday life.

Work with this exercise:

Visualize the soles of your feet extending into the planet’s core.

Imagine them being nurtured and supported by this energy.

See and feel this energy being drawn up into your body and surrounding you.

As you inhale see and feel the earth’s energy infuse your cells.

Hold your breath and observe your body and cells shining with the earth’s power.

Exhale and feel this power intensifying and integrating into your body.

Explore this exercise with different feelings and visualizations. Use what works for you. Internal martial artists sometimes use the grounding visualization of seeing roots growing out of the soles of their feet deep into the planet. You could also see and feel yourself as a tree. Actually feel the solidity of the wood and the consciousness of the tree. Another is to visualize the planet living in your belly. See it there powerful and strong. Nourishing and supporting you.

Everything about the earth supports our existence. Being conscious as we breath the air, drink water and walk on the earth brings this awareness into our body and mind. We allow ourselves to be supported by the earth. This awareness of our relationship with the planet makes the body and mind strong. This strength of body and mind is the essence of grounding.


The Alchemy of Anger – Transforming the Energy of Anger into Empowerment

Healing and empowerment through anger is realized when we are able to connect with anger where it exists. This is infinitely different from the reaction that we usually have to anger. We usually “manage” anger by repressing it or releasing it. As a result we fear anger as opposed to being empowered by it. Today we will be discussing a method to shape our minds in such a way that we channel the frequency of anger to nourish and support our body and mind.

The desire to repress or release anger comes from our aversion to this particular frequency. Our minds have developed patterns of management that have also formed ideologies. It has become normal for us to either criticize the world that seems to make us angry or to criticize ourselves. Or we simply choose to deny the fact that we are angry at all and repress the emotion. These patterns occur because we have an aversion to the feeling of anger. It is as much a physical reaction to the biochemical reaction as it is a mental and intellectual reaction.

Learning to become empowered through our anger requires a training on the physical as well as mental level.

When we can coordinate our mind with the frequency of anger a shift takes place. We learn to move into the embodied manifestation of anger consciously and we gain the ability to channel it’s energy with 100% purpose and focus. It becomes an energy which can be use creatively and consciously, as opposed to the usual reaction of repressing or releasing. The two principles are at opposites. One is a rejection of the frequency of anger – the other is an embracing. Ironically through embracing anger we actually become free of the usual negatively associated symptoms of anger. Instead we learn to use it’s energy for nourishment, inspiration and conscious action.

Connecting consciously with the frequency of anger is a different path from that which most of us are accustomed. We have not been trained to do it, we also have beliefs about the rights and wrongs of anger. Many of us will already have an aversion to the mere word “anger”. Practicing the method outlined here will aid in healing the many beliefs and wounds we have developed around anger.

Work with this exercise:

Begin by observing your body. Pay attention to how it feels.

Begin to think about the things which seem unjust and wrong.

Give yourself permission to complain, rant and rage. What is it that is wrong with the world? How have you been wronged?

How have you wronged yourself?

Think about the things that you would stand up for.

Who is the part of you that would fight for what is right? Who is the part of you that would protect your family? Your friends?

Give yourself permission to feel the reflections of anger within.

Is there hate? Revulsion? Observe how they feel in your body.

Take how ever long you need to connect with this feeling. If it should fade simply find that place again.

We are not forcing anger to arise. We are simply feeling for the frequency however light or subtle it may be – however hidden or strong it may be.

At the volume of a deep breath allow yourself to say “ah.”

Allow the pitch of the “ah” to rise and match the pitch or frequency of the anger. We are not aiming at volume but intensity. It may become like a silent roar or scream.

If your face or body feels like expressing, let it express.

Connect the “ah” to the frequency and feeling of anger.

Give yourself permission to really let it out.

Stop making the sound and simply observe the sensations of your body. Observe where the anger was manifesting and notice the feeling of it.

Allow your consciousness to touch it.

How does it feel?

Has it changed at all?

Move through and into it. Observing how the feeling feels physically in your body.

And again begin the silent roar.

Really put yourself into it!

It’s best to explore and find the pitch of the intensity for yourself but here’s a tip if you’re feeling lost. Most people feel anger as a very high vibration in their heads. It is also reported as feeling or sounding like a roaring in the head.

Where ever or however it is, allow your consciousness to move into it.

We are training our minds to move into the fire, to become one. We learn to sit in the fire and become the fire. There is no need to fear. Become the pure energy.

Visualize yourself moving into the anger. Allow your mind to yield and become non-resistant. In it’s formless state it is able to become the shape of anger.

If you simply feel echoes of anger allow yourself to feel into these. Know that they are portals to the full experience of anger.

Come back to observing the body. Allow it to be. Allow your thoughts to be. Simply bring your mind to the feeling of the anger. Allow everything else to be as it is.

If you should visualize anything there, simply allow these sights to pass like a movie. Observe.

Good results seem to come from this practice when we alternate the silent roar with moments of observation and so on. Explore and experiment. Find what works best for you. You may also find that a different sound than “ah” works better. Go for it. The practice is about results and results are about what works for you.

In the beginning when practicing there may be fear upon entering anger, we may flinch or we may be in awe. Whatever comes up allow it to come and just continue with the focusing on the feeling of anger and the “ah.”

We feel fear because we can feel our mind stretching, expanding – we feel as if we should surely burst and erupt with anger – but we do not. We are developing the full consciousness of body and mind to feel the anger. We are developing an expanded consciousness.

Our former aversions to anger are simply a perception of the mind. When we learn to fully embrace anger with body and mind – a deep peace and power will be experienced. It is a very humbling and noble experience.
We can also observe that by opening ourselves to anger in this way we can clearly and coherently begin to understand the messages of the anger. It is telling us not what it believes is wrong – it is telling us what we believe is wrong. It is a messenger showing us how we perceive the world. We then have the opportunity to choose. Do we change the world or do we change our reactions to the world. What we have gained is the clarity to make this decision based on the unity between emotion and intellect.

Anger will stand up for the things that are important to us. It will elicit change for the things which we decide matter to us. It will stand up for the values and principles which we choose to make important.

Anger is needed when we need to to do something dramatically different. It may require us to take a good hard look at ourselves and ask what is wrong. It gives us a sign that there is something to be looked at – something to be made right.

Know that right and wrong are rules which we give meaning to – and where there is meaning there will be importance. If the principles that are right to us are violated and ignored, then anger will give us it’s message. It is asking us to take action. To change the circumstances that we are in – to transform.

We desire to feel differently. Anger gives us this opportunity.

Our reasons for change may be related to the work we do, interactions with friends or loved ones – but ultimately it is the way that we are communicating with ourselves.

One thing to keep in mind with this practice is that the implementation into daily life requires the mind and body connection to unite. We have within us a strong pattern that with anger must come release – and so when intense anger comes our body and mind react instantly. Through practice we can train our bodies to surpass the external release and we enter into the anger. By practicing on the smaller echoes of anger during solo practice, we can prepare ourselves for eventually being able to channel the energy of the larger more intense manifestations.

But remember to forgive yourself if you do at times lose yourself to anger.

While repression or projection can lead to us being a prisoner of anger – expansion of the mind leads to liberation and empowerment.

Anger is a very confronting emotion for many of us to manage let alone change our beliefs and the way we respond to it as drastically as I have outlined in this article. If we observe our usual relationship with anger however we must admit that many methodologies have not delivered us real results. We need to assess what works and what does not if we are to get where we want to go in this world. I for one will not tell anyone what their path is – I simply offer a method for finding healing through anger. As always I encourage you to explore if it is right for you.


P.S. Of course the technique is far easier to explain person to person ( I’m doing my best to put it into words). If you have any questions or comments regarding it feel free to contact me.

The Power of Music

Music has the ability to transform locked physical and emotional states into fluid ones. The power of sound and music has been used since the beginning of time to channel energies into direction and intention. Higher planes exists where the traveler is met with music that seems as if it is played by angels. This music has a direct effect on the heart center of a human being and this energy has a ripple effect of healing the entire body and mind. There are also realms composed entirely of sound, where the other senses recede to the point of completely dissolving. Here the consciousness floats and the language of the tones and symphonies simply infuse into out being.

Beings have intuitively connected to this place of sound and music throughout our planet’s history. The circular, flowing nature in which music captures a form of energy, emotion and intent forms a direction that manifests powerfully at the physical level of sound. It is this reason that music can so inspire the energies and emotions of joy, grief, hope, anger and so on. It is also for this reason that we need to be deliberate and conscious of the sounds that we choose to express, as well as the meaning behind the sounds.


The Way of Karma ~ Part 1

Karma is the reality of cause and effect. All experience and creation is the result of an interaction that in itself was a result of previous interaction. Karma is manifestation. It is all that we have created and set in place. Karma is energy and so it is the interaction of energies that determines how Karma will manifest. For example intent affects solid matter differently from mental or spiritual matter. Likewise intelligent and aware consciousness may interact differently at many levels and dimensions, the result being a shape, form and essence unique to the consciousness that bears it.

It is the depth and manner of understanding that determines the ultimate effect of Karma. Just as our ability to transcend and move through mind and body states will determines pleasure and pain, struggle and freedom, so too will these states determine our Karma. In fact the existence of these abilities, perception and understanding is also Karma. There is no level that escapes it, because all is within the sphere of cause and effect. This is the law of Karma, but it too falls within the infinite and so its opposite exists as soon as consciousness perceives its direction. That direction is to take no level of reaction or response. The essence that escapes cause and effect is that which does not react to cause and effect. It is this essence that is used to transform and “pay the dues” of Karma. It effectively stops feeding the patterns of karma and begins neutralizing the chain of reaction.

Important to note with the purification of Karma is that as levels of consciousness are revealed all perception right, wrong, evil, ugly and good will also surface. The principle of no reaction will carry us through all these experiences, however the mind that would hinder us is the mind that decides we are not allowed to progress. These beliefs of the mind are directly connected to our perception of right and wrong. For example if we begin to perceive difficult emotions it is the perception of difficulty which will create aversion, this in itself seeks to hinder the mind from even looking at it. Similarly if we become aware of a thought or experience that we are too attached to, then we have already shifted from a state of no reaction to one of reaction.

The most important attribute in re-directing and purifying the flow of karma is mental control. Control is the cultivation of mastery and will bring absolute direction and will over all levels of consciousness. This is the single reason why mastery of the self is sought. With it comes complete autonomy over the direction of destiny, spirit and karma.
