Brief Practice – Grateful Brain

The Covid Daze – I am so aware of the strains it has placed on myself and my world. I am a little short on joyous and grateful states of mind and short on enthusiasm. Apparently, this is a pretty common reaction from such an event and is actually a perfectly reasonable response to trauma. A malaise state. but I am feeling a little done with it personally.

Mind Clouds

Throughout these “times” I have continued to check in and sit with a group of Insight Meditators – on line. They have been my anchor point to return to practice again and again. “Just Begin Again” being my motto for 2021.

Sitting with Mission Dharma this week the teacher Howie Cohen shared his wife’s technique for gratefulness. She is using the phrase “I get to” instead of “I have to”. I get to go to work. I get to clean the house. Etc. I tried “I get to pay my taxes” and it brought the benefits I receive from the tax system to my mind!

It is an insightful short practice to interject into the day here and there. Reframing the lens the mind is viewing through. Creates the added benefit of giving a positive spin to something that needs to be done. I found it helpful with my “ Malaise”. Doing it with a compassion for self is even better. These have been strange days indeed.

Star Tetrahedrons

At a guided group meditation I had an unusual experience of energy flowing through my body. It was a physical and visionary experience. I saw and sensed the energy as a geometric form. I assumed I had entered into Theta level brain waves. It is at the slower and deeper Theta level that vision states occur. A subconscious meets conscious mind – affair.

When the star first contacted me I blocked it – Control Mode but then I let go into a mindful meditation state. The grid of energy centred itself in and through my heart chakra. As the meditation went on the grid connected to more of my body’s energy network. I felt like a powerful healer was doing a hands on energy session with me. Super Reiki!

I have since come to know that what I saw is called a Tetrahedron Star. When I googled what I saw I located geometric images and a huge number of sites with their interpretation of a what is also called a Merkaba. The best graphic I found belongs to the Aurora Ascension site.

My experience of it felt very personal and it didn’t feel right to take an interpretation of it from The Web. It was interesting to read other people’s thoughts about what it might be though. It is a fairly well known phenomena (in certain circles) that can occur during prayer and meditation. The question was what did it mean for me?

What I decided was that the “Star Tetrahedron” manifested from the vortex (as Esther Hicks would say) to let me know that there IS more than 3D World. A moment of connection to the larger soul group – perhaps god. I decided not to over interpret the experience. To keep the analysis to a minimum. The experience hasn’t come again and that is okay but I haven’t forgotten it either. I keep it as a touch stone for when I need a reminder that we are more than what usually appears in this 3D world.

Dimensional Healing

As a child I had a reoccurring dream where I would place my hands on people, and heal their ailments. This went on until I took an energy work class in my late 20’s. At that point I guess I had brought the ability up to my conscious mind and my subconscious let that message go – the dreams stopped. I continue taking healing classes of different kinds as there are many ways to do this. I never took up being a healer formally. I have participated in it for a long time though by occasionally working on myself, friends and family.

I was at an Adam Dreamhealer workshop where he explained he had moved from doing healing to teaching healing because we heal better when we do it ourselves. I gained a lot of insight from Adam’s work. His books have these really useful illustrations, his talks are sensible and full of “how to” information. When I check in on his social media sites I still find his writing and presentations most interesting. He has gone from being the youthful Dreamhealer to mature father and Dr. McLeod – Naturopath as an adult. Busy and evolving – he doesn’t do exactly the same workshops now as I had access to but he is still most interesting.

Through Adam and other classes on healing I began to practice Long Distance Healing akin to Focused Intention and Remote Healing. This is done while away from the person. It entails being in a meditative state where your mind is settled, clear and in alignment with your higher “best” self. You approach the person or your own self with respectful separation (make sure there is agreement that your intentions are appreciated and allowed). Visualize the person or an image of your self at arms length or so away from you.

Ask for permission to send healing light, wait for a reply – just listen to the person first. What comes up? – pay attention and then offer the person your healing energy transmission. I think taking a class in this is important but it is simple to try it on your own to get the idea.

I do more listening than sending than I used to. One of the things that seems to really help is to simply assist the person with grounding to the earth through their base chakra and connect them to their own higher self /star through their crown chakra. Help their own energy to flow and release. Yup – I think maybe a class in Reiki or other healing modality or two is a good thing to do if you are interested in this work.

Exploring Energy Work

I began taking healing courses in the early 1980’s. At the time the practice of Therapeutic Touch (TT) was growing in popularity and was embraced by the nursing profession. I took a form of hands off healing akin to TT through the Washington Psychic Institute now offered through the Church of Divine Man. Later I took Reiki classes from Reiki Master – Phylis Victory.

I view energy work as a way of connecting with another person’s  grid or “Matrix” that I believe we are all imbued with. When working on people I have often seen a grid of energy bars that the person’s is supported on.  I  understand it to be the fabric that underlies the human/earth experience. Out of regular sight but visible on the etheric level.

Vitalism is a philosophical and former scientific field that posited that a primal energy is inherent in all living things. I resonate with Vitalism’s basic premise that there is a force or energy (hello Star Wars! ) flowing through all the living beings on earth. Personally – I think inanimate objects possess an energy too but Vitalism was focused on the animate.  The formal scientific community moved away from Vitalism research in the 1800’s. Some scientists moved away from using the term Vitalism but still perceived a complex force was active in living beings that was beyond mechanistic models of life and beyond normal sight. These led to new theories of complexity like Quantum Physics.

Neil Bohr, Walter Elasser and others kept the discussion in their research.  More recently physicist such as The Fundamental Fysiks group continued it.

I have had experiences when participating in energy work that are vision like in their nature yet I believe to be real – so I ignore the skeptics and continue exploring. I am not preaching – just exploring. Open.

When I do energy work I “see” as if I am at several levels of being at once. I see the physical world. There is the person, their body and my hands give comfort. Then on a whole other level I see densities in their holographic like grid/matrix. I at times feel I am with the person out of time and space – yes like we are suspended in a space of gold grids and energetic flow. There are books on these subjects now like Michael Talbots’s  The Holographic Universe. When I began there were few.

Outside of the classes I have taken most of my learning has been experiential. I seem to have an experience then find a validation of the experience after. All quite fascinating.
