HarmoniExpo – Day 2

The second and last day of HarmoniExpo is now over, and it was a happy, if a bit tired, group of Pranic Healers who enjoyed a celebratory meal afterwards. The second day of the expo was as wonderful and filled with people as the first one, many eager visitors asking questions and commenting on their own experiences with the scanning and the treatments. Many people were very interested in learning about scanning and feeling energy themselves, and we continued to scan the energies of the hands, and the flowers.

Kari teaching the basics of scanning to two visitors.

In the stall next to us they did aura photography, and some of the healers in our group decided to take ‘before and after’ pictures of themselves (which I will add here if I have the chance). The results were brilliant, on many levels – in both cases the energies and the aura became brighter, bigger and more centred! Big yay for co-operation between methods!

We also had a lot of interest in the further study of Pranic Healing, and visitors who wanted to know more about if we have courses on the spiritual meaning of the pineal gland (yes, we do) and on kundalini energy (yes for that one too)! All the information is available, once one has completed the basic set of courses 🙂

As we had treatments happening almost throughout the day, people would often stop and ask about what ‘all this waving’ is about, why we have a box of water in the stall and whether one needs to be born with this gift 🙂 SOme visitors who received treatment had very strong reactions – one woman came back the next day to tell about how her experience of the cleansing effect had continued even after the treatment was finished!

As yesterday, we also had time to do some healing for each other in between doing healing for visitors, and we got to both do ‘maintenance healing’ on each other so that we stayed energised and effective for the visitors. Ali also wanted to see if it feels different to have healing done with crystals or without.

We also did ‘double healing’ to really test our powers – one healer treating the back and the other treating the front! Luxury treatment!

Ali and Fanny doubling up for doing some scanning and cleansing exercises on Shilpa.

Working at the expos is a wonderful opportunity to really have an intense pranic healing practice, and talking about the teachings and practices makes them even clearer to oneself! And spending two days with an amazing group of pranic healers like this gives one a brilliant opportunity for practice on people who can give immediate feedback (both colleagues and visitors) and help us refine our healing skills even more! It is also one of the nicest ways to do service!

Now the expo is done and dusted for this time, time to take these experiences and start preparing for the next expo in Helsinki in February!

HarmoniExpo – Day 1

Today was day one of HarmoniExpo, the largest expo for alternative therapies in Sweden. Pranic Healing Finland and Sweden got together to bring Pranic Healing to the expo, and I arrived from Finland on Saturday mid-day to find a busy stall, lots of healing being done, and people asking questions and getting answers! Ali, the organiser in Sweden, and Kari and Katja from Finland had already set up the night before, and the stall was filled with books, FOL-TOL stickers, lavender-alcohol spray bottles and informative posters.

The Pranic Healing table, with informative video playing, fascinating books and leaflets, and real and fake flowers for scanning exercises.

Throughout the day we talked to people about Pranic Healing, answered many interesting questions and did some simple scanning exercises to show people how everyone can feel the energy of their hands, and of other objects like flowers. As the visitors to an expo like this often have some information about energies or other kinds of treatment, we made good use of the images on the walls showing the locations of the chakras and the energy bodies. We also did some chakral profiling for people, to demonstrate how we do scanning and what kind of information we can gather from the scanning, and how that information helps in making the healing more efficient.

Katja explains about chakras, here talking about the heart chakra.

At the Pranic Healing stall we had visitors from many parts of the world, and even people who had done Pranic Healing before but who had, for some reason or other, not done any PH for a long time. There were many happy faces when we told them there is an increasing amount of Pranic Healing activities and Twin Hearts Meditations going on in Stockholm now! And a very happy Ali too!

A happy organiser Ali!

Later in the day, when there were a few quieter moments, we did some healing on each other. It seems Pranic Healers never get tired of healing 🙂

In the quieter moments we did healing for each other.

And proved that doing Pranic Healing does not always have to be all serious faces…

A very excited Pranic Healer!

About an hour before the expo closed we suddenly realised we had not eaten much for lunch and that we were all getting rather hungry. Being a busy and excited with the healing and talking meant we had not noticed the time flying! However, eventually the physical body required its physical sustenance, which came in the form of absolutely delicious Indian food made by another Pranic Healer. A very good ending to a very good day, and a very good preparation for another equally good day tomorrow!

Self-healing tip for the busy bees

Copyright: becrystal.com

They say being ‘too busy’ is a symptom, not an achievement, which is how many people seem to feel these days (me included, I have to admit). ‘I would love to but I’m too busy’ is a common excuse for a lot of things, it even tops the other favourite ‘I can’t afford it’. And yes, there is such a thing as having a lot of things to do, but in the end it is all down to prioritising. And yes, we should all try to calm down and get to a state of zen where we don’t feel busy, so we’d be able to do that prioritising. All in an ideal world.

But while working on that, through Twin Hearts Meditation, self-healing, character building etc, we still have to figure out how to fit all these things into our busy schedule.

I have noticed that trying to do a huuuge self-healing project never works, because ‘you never have time for it’. So, baby steps. One thing at a time.

I have put my healing crystals to good use, and integrated my daily self-healing into my other daily routines. Morning and evening, when I go to the bathroom to brush my teeth, I programme my seven small extractor crystals to cleanse a selection of chakras/areas. They do their thing while I brush my teeth etc, and when I’m done I remove them, energise the chakras and I’m done!

This also works while cooking etc, but I find that tooth brushing, or shower, works best, as it’s already cleaning, and as I keep the crystals in the bathroom with the salt, it’s the logical place – no moving of tools required!

Forgiveness – I

What is forgiveness?
How do we do that? How do we forgive, what does it feel like when we’ve forgiven someone?

Copyright: Flickr / hang_in_there

Until recently, I had never experienced difficulty in forgiving someone. Yes, sometimes it took me a whole day to forgive them (yeah, I know…) but even then it was more of an automatic thing, not anything I had to ‘try’ to do, to actively work on. The more difficult thing was sorting out my hurt self-esteem after I got hurt 😛

I found myself repeatedly talking to people who said they simply cannot forgive someone for something done to them, either because they believed this person did not deserve forgiveness, or because they simply did not know how to! I always told them the forgiveness ‘ritual’ Master taught (from webcast by Master Stephen Co, can be found in THIS previous post). I usually also add ritual with asking for forgiveness, as hurting is very rarely just oneway…

I cold always mentally understand that forgiveness isn’t always that easy, but I had nothing much to tell people in way of helping as it was very natural to me. I always did wish I could understand more so I could help more.

Be careful what you wish for, it might come true…

Now I have a very intimate understanding of what it feels like to not know how to forgive. And it’s not nice, I tell ya! However much I know I have to forgive, however much I know I’m only hurting myself, and however much I decide to keep repeating the words until they feel true, I’m still struggling.

So far I can only say repetition repetition repetition repetition repetition repetition – it seems to be the only way forward. I always thought it would be easy, just repeat and repeat. I hadn’t thought of the negative emotions that get in the way, the ‘why should I forgive, they don’t deserve it’, and the very simple way the emotions just make us forget to do the forgiveness ritual, to find a ton of other more important things to do. It also often feels safer to not poke and prod at the issue because it feels like thinking of it only makes us angry and sad and hurt and feeling either like tearing the whole world apart to rip put the pain, or makes us feel like nothing at all, like we’re completely empty inside. With those feelings lurking it’s not wonder we hesitate to face the forgiveness. We’re still just human after all 🙂

Another thing I have noticed is that denying the feelings of hurt just makes it all worse. It’s ok to accept that what the other person did was hurtful and possibly very wrong. Then you are free to remind your emotional body that you do not know everything about that person, they are learning and evolving and make mistakes, remember they’re a soul with emotions too. ‘Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.’ Luke 23:34

A dear friend gave me a good tip too: if it’s too difficult to bless the person yourself, if that makes you angry and upset, just simply ask the higher beings to bless the person with love and a good life, and with emotional and spiritual maturity. That way you don’t have to feel happiness and forgiveness towards the person directly, and doing this will (I’m told) in time make it easier to forgive the person. Here goes 😀

A Simple Forgiveness & Releasing Technique

Excerpts from public lecture of Master Stephen Co on the Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi: A Treatise on Inner Alchemy and Transformation following the full moon meditation (June 25/26, 2010).

For those who missed the video or audio streams, here is an important part of the lecture, lovingly & generously shared to one and all.
First, we have to understand that we are souls and are here on earth today, shaped by lessons learned from previous experiences, to learn more lessons in order to evolve. Evolution, however, involves time, process, and (lots of) mistakes. Hence, we all make mistakes.

Saint Francis of Assisi

From the alchemical interpretation of the lines of the prayer of Saint Francis of Asissi, “where there is hatred let me sow love, where there is injury let me sow pardon and forgiveness”, Master Stephen Co teaches us this simple technique as taught by GrandMaster Choa Kok Sui.

(Mudra is to put hands together on the heart; visualize in front of you someone you want to forgive & let go; inhale & exhale slowly; focus on your heart & crown chakras). Say the following sincerely:

Namasté, Namasté, Namasté.

The spiritual being within me acknowledges there is a spiritual being within you. (This part is important when you forgive. The realization here is that we are all spiritual beings who are in the process of evolving).

Namasté, the I AM within me acknowledges the I AM presence within you.

The child of God within me honors the child of God within in you. Namasté. (Visualize his/her body disappearing and all you see is brilliant light for you are addressing at the soul level)

Namasté.

The divinity in me salutes the divinity in you.

Atma, Namasté.

We are all children of God.

We are all in the process of evolving.

Evolution involves time, process, and lots of mistakes.

I had my share of mistakes and learned from them.

So can you. I wish you the same.

God’s peace and love be with me.

God’s peace and love be with you.

You are completely forgiven. (3x)

May you be blessed with inner peace, inner healing.

May you be blessed with spiritual transformation & spiritual maturity.

God’s blessing be with you.

May you spiritually grow and evolve.

Namasté.

You are completely forgiven.

Go in peace.

I completely release you.

So be it.

Atma, namasté.

Go in peace. (Be stil. Be aware. Let the energy flow. Take a deep breath. Exhale and release.)

Cut cut cut! (Do this cutting action with both hands like you’re cutting links in front of you)

I release you.

Note: Repeat this exercise as many times as you like. It’s the energetic way of releasing and letting go.

Resentments can get stuck in the chakras, and go deeper & deeper into the astral body then the mental body. Without letting go and forgiveness, spiritual development is difficult. You will keep hitting roadblocks (which are basically your angers & resentments) to success. Move on with your life. Learn your lessons. Let go of the past so you can continue to live.

Pranic Healer-förĂ€lderns knep 2 – sömn

Grand Master Choa har sagt att allt Àr energi. Pranic Healing Àr lÀran och konsten att anvÀnda och hantera energi och utgör dÀrför en stor hjÀlp för alla upptagna förÀldrar.

Barnens sömn – eller snarare brist dĂ€rpĂ„ – Ă€r ett Ă€mne som intresserar och oroar alla förĂ€ldrar dĂ„ och dĂ„. VĂ„ra barn sover ocksĂ„ bĂ€ttre och sĂ€mre olika tider. BĂ„da döttrarna har trĂ€nats i att sova hela natten med en metod som passar just vĂ„r familj och vi har fĂ„tt rutinerna att sitta ganska bra. ÄndĂ„ kommer dĂ„ och dĂ„ tider dĂ„ barnen sover sĂ€mre, och dĂ„ det kĂ€nns som om ingen sömn-metod fungerar alls. Senast i detta skede tar jag till Pranic Healing.
Vad jag gör beror naturligtvis pÄ vad som felas och orsakar sömnlöshet. Barn som gÄr pÄ övervarv (egentligen frÄgan om övertrötthet som tar sig detta uttryck hos barn)  lugnar man och söver man effektivt med flitig allmÀn rengöring (flera gÄnger!). Om barnet inte somnar om inom 5 minuter med allmÀn rengöring, brukar det vanligtvis bero pÄ nÄn fysisk Äkomma. Speciellt yngre dottern kan inte sova om hon inte mÄr riktigt bra.
Senast vakade vi pga snuva och tandsprickning. Snuvan höll hela familjen vaken frĂ„n smĂ„timmarna framĂ„t första natten – innan jag fattade att det var nĂ„n krĂ€mpa som höll dottern vaken och att den borde behandlas. Följande kvĂ€ll fattade jag galoppen nĂ€r dottern för första gĂ„ngen i sitt korta liv inte jollrade glatt efter gonattrutinerna. Jag fick göra healing i hela 20 minuter innan det utmattade barnet somnade. Hon sov i 8 timmar pĂ„ raken (normalt sett sover hon 10-11 h i stöten sĂ„ det var en jĂ€mförelsevis kort natt). tack vare healingen lĂ€ttade besvĂ€ren sĂ„ mycket att dottern kunde somna och jag fick samtidigt bekrĂ€ftat var skon klĂ€mde. (Hon Ă€r 6 mĂ„nader sĂ„ hon kan inte berĂ€tta.)
Följande kvÀll slutade hon grÄta efter 5 minuters behandling och hon sov normala 10 h. Och kvÀllen dÀrpÄ behövdes ingen behandling alls för att hon skulle somna, fast jag hade ju gjort flera behandlingar under tupplurarna under dagen.
Jag har ocksÄ erfarit (igen) hur verksam en enkel vÀlsignelse kan vara. NÀr barnen sover oroligt pÄ natten, vÀlsignar jag dem (halvvaken i egen sÀng, dock) och jag mÀrker genast att barnen lugnar ner sig. Yngre dottern har fortfarande ibland svÄrt att somna under dagen Àven om ingen fysisk Äkomma (som tex en tÀppt nÀsa) besvÀrar. DÄ brukar en enkel vÀlsignelse med kÀrlek under flera minuter hjÀlpa henne att komma till ro.
För det mesta fĂ„r jag barnen att somna pĂ„ fem minuter med dessa metoder. HĂ€rligt! Barnen fĂ„r en god sömn och jag kan göra annat, till exempel hushĂ„llssysslor eller blogga 😉

Syö vĂ€rejĂ€ terveydeksesi, osa 2

Lupasin jo edellisessĂ€ kirjoituksessani kertoa skannauskokeiluistamme, mutta sitĂ€ saatte odottaa vielĂ€ 🙂

TÀssÀ ensin lainaus siitÀ, mitÀ Pranic Healingin pÀÀopettaja Master Choa Kok Sui sanoo ravinnosta ja praanasta:

”Tiede on tutkinut ravintoa kemialliselta kannalta: proteiineja, hiilihydraatteja, sokereita, hivenaineita, rasvoja ja vitamiineja. Toistaiseksi tiede ei ole tietoinen praanan olemassaolosta. Sen vuoksi ravintoa ei ole tutkittu praanan (energian) nĂ€kĂ€kulmasta: ruoka-aineiden sisĂ€ltĂ€mĂ€n vĂ€ripraanan mÀÀrĂ€n ja tyypien kannalta sekĂ€ niiden vaikutuksesta ihmiskehoon.

SÀilötty ruoka sisÀltÀÀ suurin piirtein saman mÀÀrÀn proteiineja, hiilihydraatteja ja muita kemikaaleja verrattuna tuoreeseen ruokaan, mutta tuore ruoka on varmasti ravitsemampaa kuin sÀilötty ruoka, koska se sisÀltÀÀ enemmÀn praanaa kuin sÀilötty ruoka.

Ruokavalion pitÀÀ olla tasapainoinen, jotta keho pysyy terveenÀ. Tasapainoisen ruokavalion kÀsitteen pitÀisi sisÀltÀÀ sekÀ oikeanlainen kemiallinen eli ravinnollinen sekoitus ettÀ myös oikeanlainen sekoitus vÀripraanoja. Jotta saataisiin tasapainoinen praanaruokavalio, on suositeltavaa valmistaa ruokalajeja, joissa on monia praanavÀrejÀ.

Ruoan vÀri vastaa joskus sen sisÀltÀmÀn praanan pÀÀasiallista vÀriÀ. Esimerkiksi vihreÀt kasvikset sisÀltÀvÀt paljon vihreÀÀ praanaa ja porkkanat sisÀltÀvÀt oranssia praanaa. TÀmÀ vastaavuus ei kuitenkaan aina pÀde. Esimerkiksi punaiset tomaatit sisÀltÀvÀt paljon keltaisen vihreÀÀ praanaa ja hyvin vÀhÀn punaista praanaa. Vesimelonit, joilla on vihreÀ kuori ja punainen sisusta, sisÀltÀvÀt paljon vihreÀÀ praanaa ja tuskin yhtÀÀn punaista praanaa.

LÀnsimaisen lÀÀketieteen lÀhestymistapa on hyvin erilainen verrattuna perinteisen kiinalaiseen tai intialaiseen (engl. Ayurvedic) lÀÀketieteeseen. LÀnsimainen lÀhestymistapa on materiaalinen tai kemikaalinen. Kiinalainen tai intialainen lÀhestymistapa on hienojakoisempi. NiissÀ pÀÀpaino on praanaenergiassa ja kehon praanatasapainon yllÀpitÀmisessÀ. Perinteinen kiinalainen lÀÀketiede on kehittÀnyt tÀmÀn hyvin pitkÀlle kÀyttÀen yrttilÀÀkkeitÀ ja akupunktiota.

On yleisesti tunnettua, ettĂ€ hyvin vahvasti maustetun ruoan syöminen saa aikaan perĂ€pukamien pahenemista. MistĂ€ se johtuu? Vastaus on melko yksinkertainen. Koska perĂ€pukamat liittyvĂ€t anuksen alueella olevaan punaisen praanan tukokseen ja hyvin mausteinen ruoka sisĂ€ltÀÀ paljon punaista praanaa, aiheutuu sellaisen syömisestĂ€ tietysti vaivan paheneminen. Ummetuksesta kĂ€rsivĂ€ henkilö voi helpottaa vaivaansa syömĂ€llĂ€ sÀÀnnöllisesti papaijaa. Se sisĂ€ltÀÀ runsaasti oranssia praanaa ja stimuloi suoliston liikettĂ€.”
