Twin Hearts Meditation – like exercising, only spiritual

Often I see people who experience Twin Hearts Meditation (also called Planetary Peace Meditation) for the first time, and are ecstatic about it, they immediately feel the love and elation and power. Then there are those people, like me, whose first reaction is ‘that was nice, I feel sort of relaxed although my mind was racing the whole time’. If I hadn’t seen the effects regular practice of Twin Hearts has, I probably wouldn’t have continued at all. In fact, I almost didn’t. My meditation was sporadic, every time I went to a group meditation I made a decision to start meditating regularly, and a month or so later I realised I hadn’t. It was exactly like my plans to start exercising more. Every time I for some reason manage to get my running shoes on, I promise myself I’ll do it more often, and then I didn’t. Yet.

Then the Finnish Pranic Healers and Arhatic Yogis started doing a weekly meditations via Skype, and it was a lot easier to stay regular. A bit like joining an exercise class, you’re more motivated to go because the hassle of letting people know why you’re not coming makes it easier to just go 🙂 Especially as all you have to do is turn on Skype!

First benefit: the nice feeling of being in a group.

Second benefit: doing meditations in between the Skype meditations got a lot easier. Close door, sit down, close eyes, press play. And remember physical exercises before and after the meditation, especially if you spend your days sitting down at work etc. Just move or rotate all parts of your body (eyes, neck, arms, torso/spine, hips, elbows, wrists, fingers, knees, ankles) 12 times each (in both directions when rotating) and do semi-squats 50 times. This is to prevent the energy from getting stuck. Don’t try to avoid this step, you might thing you don’t need it because you’ve done other kinds of meditation before, but it’s not worth the risk of energy blockages, trust me.

Third, and by far the best benefit: increased energy levels, increased calmness and happiness, increased effectiveness, motivation for general life improvement, and so on and so on. It’s something that’s difficult to explain, as the benefits are not simple, definable things. It’s more of a feeling of being more aware, more alive. It’s about being able to understand things, see connections, be inspired! It’s about not wasting time complaining but finding ways to make the best of everything, and once in that mode, it’s hard to see why you’d do anything else, ever! Of course there are down-days too, nothing’s an eternal fix 😉 But even the down-days can be useful, you’ll see 🙂

But again, it’s not always an instant result (although I have seen that happen too, for some people. Rare though) Like with any exercise, it’s tough at first, you get frustrated when you don’t see the results you want, but once you get into it you don’t really know how you managed without it before. So a small warning – if you do decide to take up this kind of powerful meditation as a regular practice, be prepared to make it a lifestyle, as it won’t stay a ‘once in a while’ thing once you start getting the benefits of it. And it’s brilliant!

Self defence

These days spiritual people rarely retire from society and spend their time meditating in remote mountains. Today’s spiritual people often live in cities, surrounded by people, active in society, putting themselves ‘out there’ to promote awareness and help people understand the ‘feelings’ they might not understand. The same goes for anyone openly involved in and promoting alternative health.

This also means we are often under attack from those who find alternative health and spirituality bad or offensive or even dangerous. And thoughts and speech are very real, they are made up of energy and they affect the person they are targeted at, not just on an emotional level, but can also cause problems on a physical level in the long term. People who actively speaks up about these issues, especially those who take the step ‘out of the spiritual closet’ and openly discuss these things with people who aren’t always positive about it, are often faced with extremely harsh comments, negative speech and even accusations, name calling and ridicule. Sometimes when people get more sensitive, the whirlwind of energies around them can become very overwhelming, you feel, see and hear things that all demand your attentions, and it can be very tiring.

Luckily we have the tools for protecting ourselves from such intentional or unintentional attacks! I can’t count the times I’ve used the techniques I learned from the MCKS Psychic Self Defense workshop and book to keep myself protected from negativity, intentional or, more often, unintentional. There are other psychic self defines methods and books too, but these are the ones I have found most useful. Working in a restaurant/bar for several summers I’ve been very grateful for being able to protect myself from the emotional outbursts that may happen there. And even when nothing seriously unpleasant happened, I felt less tired, less annoyed and found it easier to leave work behind when I went home!

When talking to friends and strangers about Pranic Healing, about spirituality, I’m also incredibly grateful to have the tools to keep me calm and happy so that I can stay as clear minded and loving as possible in what I say. Knowing what my thoughts and what I say can do to other people, both positive and negative, I try my hardest to make sure I keep the positives outweighing the negatives. Keeping myself shielded from external unnecessary and harmful thoughts and feelings helps me keep my cool more effectively and gives me more time to focus on dealing with my own character building. This does not mean I’m oblivious to what’s going on around me. The best way I can describe the feeling is like watching a favourite film you’ve seen several times – you still get slightly emotionally engaged with the film, you feel the ups and downs of the characters, but the ‘bad’ things don’t drag you down, you just sort of observe yourself feeling these things. This is the effects I feel when wearing energy shields or other forms of energy protection.

And these are not complicated things we can do, they start from something as simple as discreetly crossing your arms and/or legs, which closes off your aura and protects you from the thought forms coming from other people or the surroundings. Other techniques require basic knowledge of Pranic Healing, and are incredibly effective in protecting us from simple things like the tiredness and tension of fellow travellers during the morning commute to defending us against very powerful thought forms that affect whole countries and societies.

Another simple thing to do is just projecting love and kindness towards anyone who is being negative towards you, whether it be as an intentional attack, or just their own emotions spilling over on you. This helps neutralise the negative emotions and helps defuse the situation easier. NOTE: this of course while still maintaining your own physical safety, walking away from dangerous situations, getting help when needed etc. This is very important.

Creating your own space for inner stillness

Creating your own space is important for many things, and meditation/spiritual practice is one of the things where it can make a world of difference. Of course it’s not essential, and a good meditation can bring you away from any uncomfortable setting if you can tune in properly. But for those times when tuning in is a bit difficult and the right mindset is proving elusive, being able to create the right setting can smooth things along very nicely indeed.

Having been a student for several years, and moving around a lot after that too, it’s been difficult for me to be able to create a permanent meditation/spiritual practice/mindfulness space in my home. Often the bedroom is the only available space that is private in a shared flat, and often that bedroom is not very big. While dreaming about the day when I can have a whole room dedicated just for my spiritual practice, I’ve been finding creative solutions in my quest for that something that will help me find the peace of mind needed for a really good meditation.

This picture is of my current bedside table/bookshelf doubling as a place for candles and pictures. It’s not much, but it does the trick. If I’m feeling frazzled and finding it hard to focus on my inner stillness, and the presence of my favourite picture of my teacher isn’t enough to shut down the noise in my head, then I light the candles, turn off all other lights, sit myself down on the bed and drape my meditation scarf over my head so it shuts out all other visual stimuli except for the scene of candles and icons. Nine times out of ten this helps me find my inner peace and be able to enjoy meditation more, whether it is Arhatic meditations or the joyful simplicity/complexity of Twin Hearts Meditation (if you haven’t tried Twin Hearts Meditation, you can find a short audio version of it here, see if it’s to your liking).

Being on the spiritual path in this modern day and age is both a challenge and a blessing. On the one hand, with the internet and the ease of travelling to different places, the availability of spiritual teachings and the possibilities of connecting with teachers are bountiful compared to a hundred years ago. But unless we want to hide away in the mountains somewhere and live like hermits, we have to learn to balance the spiritual practice with the buzz of everyday life. And everyday life can be very loud.

I used to feel that if I let myself be distracted by the hustle and bustle of material life enough to be more tempted by watching TV than by meditating, then I wasn’t really worthy of the live and blessings anyway. And while this in some ways is true (truth comes to those who seek it), sometimes we need to trick ourselves into discipline.  The same way that effectivity-self-help books tell us to create routines at work to get into a productive mood (have a cup of coffee when getting to the office, always sitting down in the same chair, opening the computer/documents in the same order etc etc), the same way we can use routine and audio-visual stimuli to help us get into the inner calmness mode.

If we are coming home from being out in a busy city, or from watching TV or talking to friends, it is very difficult to just plop down in lotus position, close our eyes and find inner stillness. It might not even be that attractive, if what you’ve been doing before was enjoyable. In this situation it is much more attractive to do something active, something material: light a few candles, maybe start playing some mantras, light some incense, while still letting yourself be in that active, material mode. This is a way of tricking our minds, emotions and bodies into this new mode of being, and as proved by advertising everywhere, we humans are pretty easily convinced when put in the right mood. After a few minutes in this setting, it is much much easier to let go of the frenzy of the day and enjoy the stillness.

It’s not really self-trickery, it’s being the master of your own mind

MCKS 61

Maaliskuussa – tarkemmin sanottuna 19.3. – me pranic healerit ympĂ€ri maailmaa vietĂ€mme pÀÀopettajamme Mahasamadhia. Tuo sanskritinkielinen nimi tarkoittaa sitĂ€ pĂ€ivÀÀ, jolloin pitkĂ€lle kehittynyt henkinen opettaja tai joogi jĂ€ttÀÀ fyysisen kehonsa, eli tavallisin sanakÀÀntein sanottuna ”kuolee”. Moni kokee ihmisen kuoleman ainostaan surullisena, ahdistava tai pelottavanakin tapahtumana, mutta sen voi myös nĂ€hdĂ€ erÀÀnlaisena ”tutkinnon lĂ€pĂ€isyn juhlana”, ”promootiona” tai ”valmistujaisjuhlana”. Homma on tÀÀllĂ€ fyysisessĂ€ maailmassa hoidettu loppuun tĂ€llĂ€ kertaa, on aika juhlia ja hetken levĂ€tĂ€, kunnes on aika alkaa uudet opinnot seuraavalla tasolla 🙂

Monen lĂ€nsimaisen ihmisen on vaikea ymmĂ€rtÀÀ henkisen opettajan roolia, ja varsinkin sitĂ€ syvĂ€lle ulottuvaa vaikutusta, joka henkisillĂ€ opettajilla on niille, jotka sisĂ€istĂ€vĂ€t sen – tai edes osaa siitĂ€ – ja jotka kiitollisina osaavat ottaa sitĂ€ vastaan. TĂ€llaiset asiat kun eivĂ€t oikein kuulu lĂ€nsimaiseen kulttuuriin…

Aasiassa ymmĂ€rretÀÀn tĂ€mĂ€ ja arvostetaan henkistĂ€ tietoa ja sitĂ€ apua, jonka henkinen opettaja voi oppilailleen antaa. Henkiset opettajat ovat itse asiassa edellĂ€kĂ€vijöitĂ€ sillĂ€ polulla, jota me kaikki hiljalleen kĂ€velemme, tietoisina tai ei… He voivat varoittaa henkisistĂ€ ansoista (esim: ”ylpeys kĂ€y lankeemuksen edellĂ€â€) ja opettaa meille ihmisenĂ€ olemisen luonnetta, ja nĂ€yttÀÀ meille pÀÀmÀÀrĂ€mme. Henkiset opettajat ovat itse joskus (aikaisemmissa inkarnaatioissaan) kompastelleet nĂ€iden asioiden kanssa ja oppineet ne silloin. He ovat rypeneet sekĂ€ viidakossa ettĂ€ soissa jo kauan ennen meitĂ€! Siksi meidĂ€n kannattaa kuunnella henkisiĂ€ opettajia.

Aasiassa kunnioitetaan henkisiĂ€ opettajia. Aasiassa kunnioitetaan myös vanhempia ja vanhempaa sukupolvea. MeillĂ€ lĂ€nsimaissa ei aina osata tuota…
Ja viisaat ovat myös sanoneet, ettÀ jotta pystyisi kunnioittamaan henkistÀ opettajaa ja arvostamaan tÀllaista opetusta, tÀytyy ensin tuntea kunnioitusta ja kiitollisuutta omia vanhempiaan kohtaan.
SiitĂ€ siis aloitamme 🙂
Ja tÀmÀn lisÀksi me pranic healerit kiitÀmme Master Choaa tiedosta, ohjeista, viisaudesta, avusta ja siunauksista. Ja me vÀlÀytÀmme ison kiitollisen hymyn maailmalle!

Investera i dig sjĂ€lv

Vi Àr mÄnga som glömmer att ta hand om oss sjÀlva nÀr arbete, familj och andra plikter pockar pÄ oss under vardagen. Mat, motion och vila Àr viktiga för att vi ska mÄ bra. Men ack sÄ lÀtt vi glömmer detta. Jag, liksom mÄnga med mig. Och vi lider alla av det. För egen del har jag kunnat konstatera att det Àr en fin balansgÄng mellan att Àgna tid Ät sig sjÀlv och att Àgna tid Ät min familj och mina Ätaganden. Som det sÀgs i Bibeln; allt har sin tid. Grand Master Choa sÀger att man inte ska göra nÄgot till överdrift. Man ska sköta sig sjÀlv, men ocksÄ sina Ätaganden.

Jag har nu ett intressant livsskede med tvÄ smÄ barn; min energibalans har inte stora marginaler. Jag mÄste avsÀtta tid för andliga övningar, meditation och motion regelbundet för att mÄ bra och orka med vardagen. SlÀpper jag pÄ detta mer Àn 2 dagar, lider hela familjen för min energinivÄ sjunker och min stressnivÄ stiger mycket och snabbt. Kort sagt, barnen tycker inte att jag Àr sÄ trevlig att vara med, och maken trivs inte heller.

Men nĂ€r man har mycket annat, hur ska man dĂ„ fĂ„ tid för “lyx” som meditation?

Min erfarenhet Àr att följande tips fungerar

  • Börja i liten skala. Jag har mĂ„lsĂ€ttningen att Ă€gna en kvart varje dag Ă„t meditation, yoga eller andliga övningar. Vissa dagar blir det mer, andra mindre. Hur trött jag Ă€n Ă€r nĂ€r jag Ă€r klar pĂ„ kvĂ€llen, sĂ„ kan jag Ă€gna 2-3 minuter Ă„t nĂ„got, kanske en kort kontemplation, att vĂ€lsigna, en snabb behandling, lite gymparörelser.
  • Gör det till en rutin nĂ€r det passar dig. Jag har mĂ€rkt att jag mĂ„r bĂ€st av en liten stilla stund mitt pĂ„ dagen. Det fungerar bra nĂ€r jag Ă€r hemma med barnen och de sover middag eller vilar. DĂ„ har jag en liten stund för mig sjĂ€lv och kan ladda batterierna.
  • Rutin Ă€r nyckelordet; gör det samma tid varje dag i tre veckor sĂ„ fĂ„r du en bra grund. DĂ„ kĂ€nner du ocksĂ„ effekterna av det. Om du tar paus, mĂ€rker du skillnaden ganska fort.

Efter en liten tid mĂ€rker du resultat. För min del fick jag rutin och kĂ€nsla för det pĂ„ ca 3 veckor. SĂ„ mycket, att jag gĂ€rna fortsĂ€tter och hela familjen mĂ€rker ocksĂ„ effekten. Och vill att jag fortsĂ€tter 🙂

Det sÀgs att en timme meditation motsvarar en timme sömn. Det Àr sant. Jag sover bÀttre och effektivare nÀr jag mediterar och motionerar regelbundet. DÄ kvaliteten pÄ sömnen Àr bra, orkar jag bÀttre Àven dagar dÄ nÀtterna blivit kortare av nÄgon anledning. Jag har ansett 9 timmars sömn som normalt för att vara utvilad. Nu klarar jag mig riktigt bra pÄ 6-7 timmar om jag bara mediterar regelbundet. Det ger mig mera tid för annat ocksÄ, men sÄ fÄr jag ocksÄ tid för andlig utveckling, motion och meditation. Det Àr alltsÄ en cirkel som föder sig sjÀlv.

Försök du med! 🙂

Pranic healer pĂ„ distans

8:nde Pranic Healing konferensen i Hamburg, maj 2008

Nu nÀr jag Àr i Sverige, Àr jag lite utanför mitt vanliga Pranic Healing-gÀng. Det kan bli lite jobbigt, och att upprÀtthÄlla sina pranic healing-kunskaper Àr svÄrt om de inte sitter i ryggraden. Men det finns i alla fall lite hjÀlp att fÄ. En hel del kan göras med hjÀlp av internet, om man har en uppkoppling och en dator och lite vana samt baskunskaper i engelska.

Internet – virtuellt umgĂ€nge

Via internet kan man göra en hel del, man kan tex kolla Pranic Healing sidor pÄ facebook (tex Pranic Healing Sweden och Pranic Healing Finland) för att se vad som Àr pÄ gÄng. Eller sÄ kan man lyssna pÄ internetförelÀsningar eller meditationer (tex www.pranichealing.com/stream), om man förstÄr engelska.

Skype

Även via skype kan man delta i meditationer, dessa erbjuds dĂ„ och dĂ„ och dĂ€r Ă€r ju fysiskt lĂ€ge sekundĂ€rt, det viktiga Ă€r att man har internet samt ett ostört stĂ€lle. Jag ska sĂ„ smĂ„ningom erbjuda detta för sĂ„dana som Ă€r lĂ„ngt frĂ„n en meditationsgrupp. I Österbotten, dĂ€r jag vanligtvis bor,  Àr avstĂ„nden lĂ„nga och det Ă€r glest mellan gĂ„rdarna, sĂ„ dĂ€r kĂ€nns det som om behovet kunde finnas för sĂ„dant.

TrÀffa likasinnade: Kurser & retreats samt andra evenemang

Bilden ovan tog jag nĂ€r jag var pĂ„ 8:nde vĂ€rldskonferensen för Pranic Healing. Internationella evenemang som detta Ă€r viktiga för mig. Jag Ă€lskar att resa, och kan jag kombinera tvĂ„ roliga saker – pranic healing & resor – sĂ„ gör jag det mer Ă€n gĂ€rna. Men ocksĂ„ att repetera kurser jag redan gĂ„tt blir ett sĂ€tt att fĂ„ trĂ€ffa likasinnade. DĂ€r jag bor i Finland innebĂ€r det att allt utom grundkursen behöver jag resa för, men det gör mig inget. Det kan vara lite knepigt att fĂ„ det att gĂ„ ihop med ledigheter och ekonomi ibland, men det brukar lösa sig, bara man Ă€r villig att jobba lite för det. Skulle det vara serverat pĂ„ bricka kanske man inte skulle ta sig tiden eller möjligheten att delta pĂ„ samma sĂ€tt.

Internationella evenemang fÄr en ocksÄ att inse, att vi Àr sÄ mÄnga som tycker att Pranic Healing Àr bra och intressant. StÀmningen pÄ dem Àr fantastisk, och nÄt jag bevarar i mitt sinne och minne för kommande ensammare stunder. Lite pÄ samma sÀtt som vi i vÄrt hjÀrta bevarar sköna sommardagar, för att minnas dem nÀr vinden viner och kylan biter ute och man bara vill krypa ihop i sitt varma bo.

Kort sagt

Det finns alltsÄ mycket sÀllskap att fÄ, om man lite letar. Behöver du hjÀlp? Ta gÀrna kontakt: maria(a)pranamaria.fi.

Ha en skön dag!

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).

Copyright: Flickr / profzucker

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.

We are only instruments

When I do healing, I sometimes find myself floundering, feeling like I’m too small for the task I’m doing. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has experienced this feeling – when you start thinking you have to do one more round of general cleansing, one more set of three sweeps on a chakra, and then just one more and one more, because you don’t trust that you sweeping is really getting the chakra clean.

I have noticed this only happens when I forget that it’s not actually me doing the healing, that I am only the instrument for the healing, and the actual healing is being done by a range of beings much more proficient in energy manipulation than my incarnated mind in its present state. What a relief!

I also noticed this happened mostly when I was trying to rush straight into a healing session from somewhere else, without taking time to ‘switch’ into ‘energy mode’. The solution I found was to take a minute (yes, it might feel long at first but trust me, it’s worth it) before starting to just sit still, eyes closed, take a few deep breaths and try to feel the divine presence around me. Sometimes I even silently ask ‘anyone there?’, and most of the time, after a few deep breaths, I’m aware enough to get a sense of a circle of beings around me! Seems even divine beings like a bit of humour 😛

Only after this do I do the formal invocation, after first having established a connection with Master and the other helping beings (without a connection and an awareness the invocation becomes just a formality). If I do this at the beginning of the healing session, even if I happen to lose the awareness occasionally during the session, I can get it back in a matter of seconds when I notice myself scrubbing the same chakra for a disproportionate amount of time 🙂

Livet gĂ„r inte i repris

Under detta Är har tvÄ mÀnniskor jag kÀnde bra gÄtt bort. BÄda dödsfallen kom överraskande och lÀmnade mig med en kÀnsla av förlust, chock och sÄklart sorg. BÄda var mitt i livet. Jag upplevde att jag inte hade hunnit prata med dem tillrÀckligt, inte hunnit sÀga allt jag ville. TÀnk om jag kunde ha hjÀlpt dem mer?

Det Àr nÄgot som jag fÄr lÀra mig att acceptera. Men som tur Àr kan jag som pranic healer i alla fall hjÀlpa dem och deras familjer Àven i detta lÀge. Det Àr en tröst och lÀttnad att veta och det hjÀlper mig bearbeta sorgen och saknaden.

Som pranic healer kan jag vĂ€lsigna familjerna, stötta dem med energibehandling under första sorgetiden och – sist men inte minst – hjĂ€lpa den döda i processen med pranic healing behandling Ă€ven efter den fysiska kroppens död. Detta hjĂ€lper, Ă€ven om de flesta av oss har svĂ„rt att förstĂ„ vad som hĂ€nder pĂ„ fysiska och energiplanet dĂ„.

Lite mer om denna process kan du lÀra dig under höstens specialkurs om sjÀlen: Achieving oneness with the Higher Soul (ung: UppnÄ enhet med Högre SjÀlen).

Kursen hÄlls pÄ engelska den 13-14 oktober men tolkas till finska vid behov, kursstÀllet Àr utanför Helsingfors. Mer info om kursen hittar du hÀr: http://www.pranichealing.fi/index.php/tapahtumat/details/184-achieving-oneness-with-the-higher-soul

VÀlsignelser till alla som berörts av död.
