Why distant healing works and is more powerful than you think

Over the years there have been many names given to the phenomena of distant healing, such as energy healing, aura healing, shamanic healing, spiritual healing intercessory prayer, energy psychology, remote healing, non-local healing. It is truly a fascinating subject which sometimes can just go over our heads because it is hard to comprehend. Distant healing is a well established faculty and term in spiritual circles. Over the years even science showed its interest in distant healing phenomena and came up with some astonishing proof.

This new understanding on the power of distant healing will add some great value to our approach on healing body, mind and spirit. But it also opens our horizons for something that has always been around but we somehow forgotten about – the ability to actively influence energy.

For more then fifty thousand years shamans and other native healers knew about the abilities of being able to heal others, not only 1:1 but also via distant. They practised this form of healing

Next to their knowledge about plants and other herb medicines. They never doubted the power and usefulness of their healing practice.

If we do some more research in other cultures and religions we will find that the use of spiritual healing and its incredible results are recorded throughout history.

Find out for yourself

But we don’t need to be spiritual nor do we need to be religious to gain real proof of spiritual healing or distant healing experiences. Furthermore why not try a simple technique that Arthur Powell mentioned in his book ‘The Mental Body’ and see the results for yourself.

A strong wish for a friends good, sent to him as general protection agency will remain about him as a thought form for a time proportional to the strength of the thought, and will guard him against evil, acting as a barrier against hostile thoughts, and even warding of physical dangers. A thought of peace and consolation similarly sent will soothe and calm the mind, spreading around its object an atmosphere of calm.”

So why not send some loving thoughts to a friend or family member and find out how his situation or his feelings have changed by you doing that. The result will surprise you and I dare to say that you will try to convince yourself it was only coincidence and not your thoughts who made all the difference. At the early stages it is difficult to allow our minds to comprehend our full potential, nothing less please just give it a try for yourself.

More and more scientist are convinced that they have found the missing ling that would explain how spiritual healing or remote healing works. The answer we seeking for is hidden in the world of quantum physics lets explore this world a little bit deeper.

1. Quantum and remote healing how it actually works

To keep a complicated subject easy, its enough to know that: Quantum is the Latin word for amount and, in modern understanding, means the smallest possible discrete unit of any physical property, such as energy or matter.” (http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/quantum 2018)

Scientist do believe that everything is made of quantum particles and that these quantum particles can actually be influenced and change their physical behaviour/states dependent on how the method they are influenced by. In many experiments they found out that it is actually possible to influence matter only with our thoughts and also to transfer thoughts to another person via distance. Which is quite a powerful faculty if it is properly trained. You might experienced something like that in your life before, when you thought of someone and suddenly the phone rang and it was actually the person you thought of. This is not coincidence and unfortunately no kind of mysticism but real physics and does work.

In 1920 Arthur E. Powell published a book “The mental body” in which he states: “If a person thinks strongly of a form in the physical brain he makes the form in etheric (Subatomic or quantum) matter in the effort of making the image he also sends out etheric waves in energy in every direction.” Here we can see that even back then people were aware on how powerful our thoughts can be.

Bruce Lipton Ph. D. a former cell biologist and professor at the National Institute of Health states in an interview very interesting how spiritual healing works on a cellular level.

When energy source entangles with another so that they interfere with each other it is called Entanglement….when one of the healers cells vibrates higher than the clients cells it becomes entangled, and the energy is lifted…”

This is a very profound and basic concept of the understanding in Quantum Physics. So Bruce Lipton says that the energy of one person can influence the energy of another person just by meeting each other. Or if we look at the statement above from Mr. Powell, that we can create powerful energy via thought transference.

The Persian physician Avicenna who is been said to have been one of the most significant physicians, astronomers, thinkers and writers of the Islamic Golden Age. Often was described as the father of early modern medicine stated, “The imagination of man can act not only on his own body but even on others and very distant bodies. It can fascinate and modify them, make them ill, or restore them to health.”

If we now look a little bit deeper into the understanding of quantum physics and its expression in distant healing we come across the term of non-locality. Dr. Larry Dossey speaks about this phenomena regarding Distant Mental effect in his book “Recovering the Soul”. In 1989 he created the concept of the non – local mind by stating:

 

“According to this concept, as we have seen throughout this book, consciousness cannot be completely localized or confined to specific points in space, such as brains or bodies, or to discrete points in time, such as the present moment.”

 

Wow, that is amazing, isn’t it? I mean, we have the scientist talking about quantum, we have others who speak about the power of thoughts. Then we have doctors and biologists who truly believe that we are able to transfer energy over a distance because thoughts can travel and consciousness doesn’t have the limitations of space and time. This is truly powerful and we can see all that which shamans and native healers knew already fifty thousand years ago, we are now able to have a proper scientific explanation.

How my distant healing & healing practice works

Even this new knowledge is absolutely fascinating I still have to say that the faculty of distant healing or remote healing needs to be trained properly. This is not only to make it more powerful and work properly but also that we understand the responsibilities and limitations that do come with it. It is very important to receive good and valuable training from a teacher to explore the possibilities of any healing but also to cultivate the faculty of distance healing.

Over the years I really had some amazing experiences in my healing practice that left myself stunned and surprised as well. Even I do know that spiritual healing, shamanic healing, energy healing and distance healing works, its power still amazes me. Furthermore the results and the healing progress of my clients make my work as a medium and healer so valuable.

On the other hand I also have seen quite the opposite when people start out being a medium and healer without even clearly knowing what they do. This can cause problems and more harm than good. I have created my own system in my healing practice which I follow with every client that contacts me to make sure that the healing can go ahead.

1. I speak to my clients before I arrange a healing session

It is very important to me to speak to any of my clients before I arrange a healing appointment with them. Only in this case I can find out if the energy of the client and my energy as a healer are in tune with each other. It also offers the opportunity to explain how I work and what to expect from a healing.

2. I don’t do any healing if the client is not committed

The healing progress can only take place if the clients is really committed to healing if that is not the case it is a waste of energy and time on both sides. This commitment can express itself in different situations such as sticking to the arranged appointment, paying on time for the session and following the advice that might be given after the session. A healing session/distant healing session takes a lot of preparation for the healer, the client should be aware of this too.

3. Distant Healing or other Healing Session don’t replace  seeing a doctor

Even distant healing or shamanic energy healing is very powerful and can really change your life, it is only complimentary. That means that you will still need to see a doctor if your health problems do require that. But a healing session will assist you to find deeper understanding of your issues as well as it will help you to activate your self-healing abilities.

4. You can’t be healed against your will and I will not heal anyone who doesn’t request it

This is very important to understand, because I frequently get emails and messages from people asking if I could do healing for this or that person. As much as I do understand that we do want to help someone in need, I will not and can’t interfere in someone else karma. People need to be open for healing if not, it goes against the morals and ethics I work with in my practice. I like to quote a statment from Arthur E. Powell from his book ‘The mental body’:

“Care must be taken not to control the patients will in any way. It is entirely wrong in principle for a man to try impose his will on another, even in order to make him do right. True growth is not helped by external coercion; the intelligence must be convinced, the emotions aroused and purified, before gain is made.”

Why not book your distant healing session  now and see how things will change?

My work as medium and healer is always based on the highest- good intentions for my clients. I am very committed to the standard of my work a follow a strict concept of morals and ethics.

Pain and Grief by Franco Santoro

“Pain and grief have been kept buried for ages, bred in secrecy and shame, wrapped by an ongoing conspiracy of smiles and well-being. Pain and grief are most healing and ecstatic emotions. Yes, sure, they can be hard, yet what makes them most devastating is the perverted idea that they are wrong, that they need to be hidden and fixed.

The greatest perversion I can conceive is the idea that illness and pain are a sign that there is something wrong in our life, that we have unresolved issues, that we have made mistakes. In this world everyone is bound to get ill, experience pain and die.

The greatest gift I can give to myself and the world is the joyful acceptance of this. Today I want to be real, I will not hide my pain as well as my happiness. I will not care if my gloomy face or desperate words cause concern or embarrassment in others. I do not need be fed with reassuring words about the beauty of life.

The beauty of life resides in the full acceptance of All That Is.”

Loving yourself – The new Superpower

There are huge discussions about the subject of self-love these days and so many voices encourage this kind of powerful act of self-empowerment.

Even the media have realized that being different and an individual is something that sales in our new modern approaching times. Be who you are and be proud of that.

This new shift of energies towards self-acceptance and empowerment is to see and there is so much more to come. We are invited to be truly ourselves and show it to the world, no matter what. But how many of us do really know who they are?

by pinterest.com


Self-love isn’t about being overweight and trying not caring what other people think. Real Self-love is truly accepting yourself without the opinion of others.

Self-love is not suffering from mental health issues and telling people openly about it because its now widely accepted in society. Real Self-love is about asking for help if you suffer and loving yourself for your vulnerability. Knowing that every person on this planet goes through this, its a part of being human.

Self-love is not only to appreciating our flaws and a random act of kindness towards ourselves. Self-love is 24/7 available, it is something that we can give to ourselves, every moment and minute of time.

Self-love is a real superpower that will change your life forever.

Many people think that self-love starts in the moment when you actually give a shit about what other people think of you. Some people think only if they start caring less, than self-love would take place within their lives.

Self-love is, caring more – not about what others may think – but what you actually thinking about yourself.

by public domain

I would like to say that self-love starts with the moment you decide to take care of yourself. Taking care of yourself for me does include the full spectrum of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being.  Every part is interconnected with another part within ourselves and therefore can positively influence each other. So if we start treating one part with love and kindness, the rest will follow and benefit from it.

The moment in which you make a commitment to yourself that from today on you will be looking after yourself, no matter what, the transformation will begin.

You will start to accept your limitations and will not give more than you have resources available. You will start to honour your body and its needs. You will give yourself a mental break if you need to, you will learn to be patient and gentle with yourself and furthermore you find ways to enjoy life, no matter what.

by public domain

To make it easier for you, I created these guidelines or principles that will help you to stay focused and true to your mission of self-love.

1. Love yourself first

Loving yourself first is a very tricky thing and many of us do really struggle to do that. We easily give our unconditional support and love to family and friends but very rarely to ourselves. Thinking if we would say no, we would be self-fish or a bad person. Deep within we might suffer from the thought that we find our worth in sacrificing ourselves for others. Only when we are needed – we are worthy.

Especially women struggle to set healthy boundaries and get some real me time! But as the Buddhists say:  “You can’t pour from an empty cup.” Which means, that how can we give truly love to others if we don’t love ourselves first? And by saying that I don’t mean accepting yourself for who you are, or the way you look, but to give yourself first what you really need. Time out, holiday, good food, exercise, fun and days out, rest or sleep, but furthermore start actively asking yourself, what is it what I do need now? Act accordingly.

2. Learn to say NO – if you want to

How many of us do suffer from the fear of rejection and its consequences? The weird look of others, the withdrawing of love and affection or even the argument that follows once we decided to set boundaries for our own good. If you truly want to start loving yourself you will need to stop thinking it is possible to please everybody. You will need to learn to say NO and be okay with its consequences. You can do that! If you fail to set healthy boundaries with others, you will suffer for sure. You will exhaust yourself, get frustrated and allow others to take away your power. You are in control. Make use of it. Setting boundaries is a very important step towards self-love and very empowering. Let go of the illusion that everybody needs to clap when you start saying No, they will not. But your inner self will clap for you endlessly and reward you with a lot more to come.

3. Start Respecting yourself – and others will respect you too

This is a very common problem and I come across it many times within my work as healer and medium. Many people complain about that they are not being respected at work, in a relationship, or in their family. These people don’t realize that others won’t pay respect, if we don’t start showing respect towards ourselves first. Respecting yourself is a massive step towards self-love and has many aspects. Such as resting when you want to, leave when you feel uncomfortable, tell people not to speak in a certain way with you and not allow anybody to take away your peace of mind. Ask yourself honestly, how shall others respect you if you don’t respect yourself in the first place?

This means to be aware of how you talk to yourself, how often you do respect your own limitations or respect yourself just for the way you are?

Once you set these rules in motion you will see how others automatically will come and respect you. The energy within you will be expressed on the outside world. This is how the magic works!

4. Be Honest with yourself

This is so important and I just can’t highlight it enough. Be honest, no matter what!!! Being honest with yourself is a really huge step towards your self-love because it means that you are going to be clear with yourself and others. No more delusional denial, no more blindly following what’s been said if it doesn’t feel right for you. No more trying to make things work if they just not worth the try.

At the beginning that can bring you into a bit of a mess or chaos in your life, but if you truly want to commit to self-love and improve your life you will need to go through this stage. It will help you to sort out your relations in your private and working life. It will help you to gain a deeper connection and understanding of the true, the whole you! Dare to be honest and start with yourself. The gains will be massively rewarding.  Being honest and clear takes courage. It will help you to stand your ground and stand up for what you believe in. It will add clarity into your life and help you to come straight to the point. It saves you a lot of energy and time and also you can finally stop over thinking stuff!!!

5. Treat yourself – not only once in a while

How often have we heard of others, ohhh you should treat yourself to this or that? And at the end we backed out thinking, aww I will do it tomorrow or next time when we got more money or whatsoever. The time is always now and that counts for self-love too. There is always an opportunity to treat yourself for a nice walk, a good book, some time away, a piece of chocolate cake, a nice new piece of clothes, a concert or movie, a nice meal or yoga class.

Treating yourself has many aspects and should include the whole spectrum of body, mind and spirit. Sometimes we should get treated by others, like receiving a gift or an invitation, getting a massage or else. And often enough it is time to ask ourselves how can we treat ourselves? What can we do to show gratitude towards our physical, mental, emotional or spiritual self? What is it that we do need right now?

by pinterest.com

6. Commit to truly being yourself

This is probably the most drastic step you can take towards self-love, to commit to truly being yourself. Once you step into this powerful commitment you will see how the world will change within and around you. There is no need to say, no matter what others people think because you want to focus on yourself not on others. It’s not about not caring what others think, but its about caring more  what you actually think about yourself.


You came into this life to truly be yourself, to find yourself and to express yourself fully. This is your birthright and everybody’s birthright. There is no need to fear what others think or act aggressively or upset if they don’t agree with you. Stay focused on your path, on your commitment to self-love.

Commit to truly be yourself and love yourself for that. Others don’t need to like it, but trust me they will! Commit to finding yourself and cultivating this qualities within you that bring more joy, more love and more happiness in your life and into the life of others.

by pinterest.com

Self-love is a process and includes many steps. If we take one step at a time we are already on the way and ahead of many others.

If you want to start radical changes, well please go ahead and do so. You might find these guiding principles helpful and help you along the way to strengthen and develope your new superpower.

“As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it “RESPECT”.

As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it “MATURITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE”.

As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it “SIMPLICITY”.

As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”.

As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”.

As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT”.

As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”.

We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know “THAT IS LIFE”!”

Moonphase in Pisces – when we feel too much

The moon in Pisces days are normally very relaxing and smooth going days. People will think and act far more selflessly than on other days and show more compassion. These days are an ideal to actively listen to what the other has to say without judgement and without giving that good advice. The Pisces energy is a very dreamy energy and so soft and gentle in its nature that we easily drift away into other realms. The spheres of magic, illusion and fantasy are opening their doors to all those brave enough to walk through them. We might feel our psychic abilities heightened and the longing to connect with others and life on a deeper level than the normal.

ted.com

Everything that is out there, and hard to grasp seems to be very fascinating and adorable. We wonder, what lies beyond and we are ready to find out.

These days are perfect to take some time for yourself and do some daydreaming. Different than making concrete plans like Virgos or Capricorn would do we are now into the no boundary state. We just want to play around with what is possible and not worry about all that could go wrong. Pisces in moon days hold the potential of accumulating of ideas and visions, supernatural experiences and others but definitely not good days for making long lasting commitments. Too easily we would say yes to something today that we later might regret because there are no boundaries, there is no self today. These days is all about floating along rather than getting things done.

 

Staying home with a good book, some chocolate and a nice cup of tea would be a perfect Pisces moon day. Watch a movie, have nice food and spend some quality time with your partner, you will not regret the openness and all that comes with it.

Our sensitivity is very much stimulated and we should stay away from anything that could bring us out of balance. Pisces love their peace and quiet and they need more of that than other star signs. Not clearly knowing where the path leads the Pisces moon days invite us to try new ways and experiment with what else is possible but more in our minds than in practical reality. Its not a time to make a promise nor to sign a contract or an agreement. We might experience some confusion and should put things off that would need our focus or clarity of mind.

huffingtonpost.com

Pisces in Moon days are for the dreamers and the idealist. Those who dream the world into shape when no one is watching.

These days might also shine a light on our insecurities and low self-esteem because Pisces just feel too much. They often have abundance of compassion and caring thoughts for others but for themselves they tend not to spend enough time. It is important on these days to return to ourselves with the help of spiritual practices such as yoga, meditation, tai chi, or swimming.

al jumuha magazine

A walk in nature, on the beach or near water is also very good and brings the influence of these days even closer into our energy field.

We will need to try to keep positive and not to get stuck in depression or the overwhelming feeling that we are unable to change the world. One step at a time would be a good advice for Pisces in moon days, so we can realisticly achieve our goals. When the moon passes through Pisces we might also in need of extra encouragement or support as subconscious feelings and thoughts might find its way to the surface. It is a great day to arrange an appointment with a therapist that can help us to find deeper layers of ourselves and how to deal with them. We are open and receptive and want to uncover all that is hidden deep within ourselves, if we can find assistance or guidance to do that this definitely would be very helpful.

It is a brilliant day to seek out some advice from a psychic or a healer because all these things are positive supported by the Pisces energy. Be creative, listen to music, explore the unknown and try something new. It is a great day to let yourself go, spend the day in bed or in a retreat. Let go of boundaries and experience yourself in a state of oneness with the world. Trance dance and any other kind of ecstatic expression can be very beneficial these days. Pisces in moon makes us long for more to see beyond the ordinary and let go of this earthly suffering.

Pisces are also often associated with addiction and all the problems that do come with it. From Co-dependency but also the intoxication of the body and its side-effects. On pisces moon days we need to be mindful not to end up in a place where we didn’t want to be – because there are no boundaries and going with the flow is so much more fun. Drug addiction and comfort eating can be an expression of Pisces energy but also these days offer the opportunity to exactly do some great work exactly on these problems.

When the moon passes through Pisces it is very advice able not to drink or smoke too much. Because of the sensitive energy we will experience everything more intense as usual which can have fatal results.

The Pisces are ruling the feet in our physical body and we should spend extra attention to these areas during Pisces days. A nice reflexology, a foot bath or seeing a podologist is very beneficial and can bring a lot of good.

The feet are on of the most sensitive areas in the whole body even many people won’t believe that. All the meridians of the whole body are coming down to the feet where they find their final destination. This is also why reflexology is so beneficial because it can help with all the inner organs and its problems.

Pisces Moon Days are great days to find some form of creative expression like singing, drawing or painting, cooking or just listening to music. If you are gifted in writing, than get your pen and paper ready and try to write some poetry.

What ever you do today, it is important that you are gentle with yourself. Take more time for a task then normal and do it in your own pace. Don’t allow a fixed schedule or anything or pressure to interfere in your day and try to make enough time and space for yourself to retreat. An Epsom Salt bath can work wonders on Pisces moon days and helps the body to detox. Drink plenty of water and be mindful to take a good rest during the day.

discovery magazine.com

Withdraw into your own world if you want to and make space for some subconscious work. Stay away from any toxins if possible and if you do take medication or smoke, especially during Pisces Moon days it would be beneficial to reduce the daily intake because everything has a bigger impact or influence today.

Try to take it easy, if you are emotional than allow your emotions to come and go. Don’t force or overthink too much as these days lead to heightened sensitivity and it can happen that we feel more than we normally do. It also indicates that we might feel more of what others go through and can easily mix it up thinking it would be our own feelings.

No one is born Self Confident

As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.”

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

No on is born Self-Confident even some people tend to believe that. As if self-confidence is a gift that was given to a few by birth and others have to work hard for it, some of us even a life time. This believe is a myth and has created a lot of confusion and misunderstanding within our personal expression of ourselves.

After years of self-development and also walking and exploring the spiritual path, I honestly can say: No one was born Self-Confident furthermore that the growth of self -confidence has different stages we go through. There are internal and external factors that do play a very important role in building self-confidence by understanding this we gain a lot of insights and can change accordingly.

google.com

There are many studies and even more opinions about the subject of self-confidence and many of them teach us a totally wrong picture what it actually is.

The concept of self-confidence is commonly used as self-assurance in one’s personal judgement, ability, power, etc. One increases self-confidence from experiences of having mastered particular activities. It is a positive belief that in the future one can generally accomplish what one wishes to do. Self-confidence is not the same as self-esteem, which is an evaluation of one’s own worth, whereas self-confidence is more specifically trust in one’s ability to achieve some goal…” – Wikipedia 2018

google.com

I wonder how many people do truly know what self-confidence is, how many of us do still believe the media’s opinion that confidence can only increase if we buy this or that. Only if we possess certain things or follow a certain method we will finally gain self-confidence and can achieve anything we want in life.

Internal and external factors that shape Self-confidence

There are many different factors which play an important role in building self-confidence early in our lives. Most important probably will be our parents and how much they encouraged, supported and loved us. This relationship is the foundation for the rest of our lives and determines very much on how we see ourselves. The more we grow up the more we come in touch with other external factors such as teachers and other children at school. The teachers opinion about our performance in school has a huge impact on our self-confidence and can break us. In that period of time we also confronted with media’s idea about our self-image and especially as a teenager we are so vulnerable to the opinions of others. These early external factors play an important role in our person development of self-confidence and can have an impact we will feel a life time. Unless we become conscious and aware enough or shall I say brave enough to heal and break through childhood or early teenage trauma.

az-quotes.com

The role of our parents towards Self-confidence

While we are children, we are totally dependent on our parents and what they make us belief about ourselves. Some people say that children have developed a sense of self-esteem by the age of 5. Dependent on our parents and how much they supported us during the early ages we will grow rich or poor in self-confidence. If rejection, abuse or the inability to express love towards children has taken place, the child will suffer a lot more than other children. In addition to that its not only what our parents do think about us but also what the parents do think about themselves. How can a parent give a good idea of self-confidence if its not present within themselves? The parents inability to love themselves or being proud of their own achievements will also be reflected towards the child. Especially that happens if the child in its innocent nature strives to be better and learn new things. If the parents then hold on to their own lack of self-confidence it doesn’t allow the child to make new experiences that help him/her grow. This is often how problems and belief systems are passed down from one generation to the other, to the point where one family member finally breaks free by seeking actively help regarding these problems.

Performance and the fail of the education system to offer true support

Performance is everything, parents are still believing that only if a child performs good in school it will make it in life. Teachers thinking the same, but for them it is more important if the child does perform good in a certain subject. Because for the teacher it is a sign that he/she is doing the right job. I wonder how many teacher actually do ask themselves if what they teach is actually needed in life? In addition to that I want to raise the question how many children nearly break under the expectations of parents and teachers to perform rather than be themselves? We still do believe only if we achieve something with the highest scores it would build up our self-confidence, this is only half true.

hindustiantimes.com

Yes, achievement has something to do with building self-confidence but it can be an achievement in anything. Something we do like, something we do have a passion for, something we set our minds to and we achieved it with our own two hands or with support of others.

In schools and education the achievement mostly includes to repeat what has been said or to achieve the highest mark so we are able to get a better job in the future. As statistics have shown how many world class students are still out of work. On the other hand side how many famous or successful people are truly depressed?

It is a myth and we still go for the idea that happiness is found on the outside, based on this believe we run around a life time, continuously asking ourselves when it will finally come. The day we achieved to be content and at ease with ourselves?

Real Self-Confidence comes from within

Let me say again, self-confidence is not something we are born with but something that we gain throughout life. It is very important to understand the difference, furthermore it will help to build a solid foundation on which self-confidence finally can grow.

From a spiritual perspective the problem arises already with our birth. The moment when the spirit incarnates into a physical body and sets itself the challenge to experience the world through the eyes of its own. From the moment we are born we are totally dependant on our parents, or at least on our mothers. We need to be fed, looked after and told how to do things. Dependant on our parents this can be a tricky path and very much is up to them what they think is really important to us. But also what they think about themselves. Then we are forced into an education system that makes us believe that our performance on how to repeat what is told will get us what we need in life. Unable to understand ourselves, the world around us we do suffer from an early age from an alienation what life is really about.

rrrtv.me

Its not about how good you perform in life but what you gain from life. How good you learn to express yourself in many different ways in this life time. How brave you are to truly explore and be who you are. Furthermore how capable you are to deal with life difficulties without losing the belief in yourself. This often is not taught to us by our parents or in school. Media and news do as well fail in building a strong foundation for people to understand life of what it truly is.

In the last instance many people turn to spirituality around the age of mid 40’s. When we have lived through some difficulties in life, we might gone through childbirth, marriage, divorce, experienced loss, and death in one way or the other, we made it in a job or even lost it once. We suddenly realize that all this somehow made us stronger and more experienced at the same time we do feel more vulnerable. Feeling that life can hit you very unexpected and nothing much you can do about it. One day we are self-confident and we think we can achieve anything the next moment this conviction is gone with the wind. All that is left is the question what is next? And how we are going do deal with it?

Self-confidence is a process from self-exploration and experiences, how we deal with them and how open we are to change? Some people are maybe born with a stronger will to live, some people got a thicker skin than others. A few people know that they asking for assistance or help to deal with certain circumstances is not a crime but very necessary to outgrow old belief systems about the self. Others might turned bitter and given up on life. In all of us there is the potential for greatness and it is up to us what we are going to make of it.

How much can we accept that life is full of unexpected changes? How far can we push ourselves to strive to new heights? Can we forgive ourselves and others for making mistakes? When do we realize that self-confidence is not something that we are born with but something that needs to be trained, brought back into life once it was lost and maybe restored when it has been broken. Understanding what role our parents, teachers, others, the media and society played in shaping the belief in ourselves. It is a slowly process of getting to know yourself better, day by day. Sorting out what you want and what you don’t want, allowing your limitations and dreams to guide you. Realizing a setback is not the end and every day we got the chance to start all over again.

Pisces by Franco Santoro

Within the cycle of the year, Pisces is crucial for it represents the culmination of the gestation of any intent or process set in motion at any time in the past, including at birth.

It is a very delicate period, in which new talents and gifts take solid shape and prepare for their outer emergence, yet in a context where we may still be unable to acknowledge and see what is actually emerging.

pic by 8tracks.com

This requires focus, care and alertness so as to embrace the opportunity of giving fruitful conscious birth to what truly aligns with our authentic potential, including the current planetary transformational shift. Each one of us is dealing with a specific element in this wider process of delivery. Here I want to underline that these elements gain considerable clarity, perspective and definition when they move from our personal limbo out into the collective. We can become truly aware of our emerging gifts and talents when we allow them to be visible and acknowledgeable by others, instead of breeding them in isolation.

After many years of working shamanically with people I have realised that the majority of individuals are unable to identify their own talents and often even regard them as negative or harmful. Hence they may continue to bury them for ages, unless they accidentally or forcefully happen to disclose them and receive positive feedback from others.

pinterest.com

Hence, when you notice something beautiful in the people you meet, even when it is so obvious and you feel it may appear stupid to point it out, well, please be honest and appreciate them anyway. What is obvious for you may not be obvious at all for the person involved.

Pisces is a huge melting pot, thriving on connections and all forms of blending, inviting us to surrender to the multidimensional ocean of life and death, sharing who we are and receiving the sharing of others, in an ongoing process of giving and receiving, which eventually loses sight of the outdated difference between subject and object, ecstatically proclaiming the unexpurgated and immaculate wholeness of our nature. Deep breath…

Among all the signs of the zodiac, Pisces is the one closest to the experience of multidimensional realities. Placed in the last stage of the zodiacal path, it represents all potential peaks in human consciousness. Here the zodiac circle reaches its final stage and can either face a quantum leap, moving into a brand new definition, or get back to sector one (Aries), repeating the same cycle all over again.

vexingquestions.wordpress.com

Pisces holds the key to the forbidden threshold of the zodiac, the one that allows the shift into the multidimensional realm, the movement into the spiralling cycle and the release of the karmic wheel. Hence, during the period of Pisces, it is easy to experience confrontations with threshold situations, glimpses of alternative lives and parallel universes, together with feelings of bewilderment, confusion or fear, as they are perceived by our ordinary identities.

Alignment with the essence of Pisces bestows the capacity to unveil multidimensional portals or itineraries. This is possible or easier when blocks and grievances have been effectively released through journeys in the preceding signs. When this is not the case, Pisces may become an excruciating vortex of hallucinations and turmoil.

youtube.com

Pisces includes the whole spectrum of identities we employ to voyage in the intricate landscape of our multidimensional self. Hence in Pisces resides the possibility of either unveiling their common source or preserving their separation.

pic by deviantart.com

Pisces has a close association with Dionysus, also known as Bacchus, the god of ecstasy, trance and dance. Similarly to Pisces, its origins and nature are confused and assorted.

 

According to one myth he is the son of Zeus and a mortal woman (Semele), who is killed by Zeus himself while Dionysus is still in her womb. Dionysus is then exceptionally born from the thigh of Zeus. Given that Hera was furious about this birth, Zeus entrusted Dionysus to the Hyades, a group of nymphs who disguised the god as a girl and raised him as an androgyne. In the Orphic mysteries Persephone, queen of the Underworld, is the mother of Dyonisus, whereas in the Elusinian mysteries it is Demeter.

All major references in the Dionysian mysteries are common features of shamanic initiation practices such as dismemberment, trance dance, communion rites, vision quest, sacred embrace, sacrifice, including the Basic Ritual of the Sacred Cone. In the Dionysian and other mystery traditions, ordinary ethics, social status and comfort have never been an element of concern. Their primary focus is gaining multidimensional awareness, which often involves radically infringing ordinary taboos and conventions.

Healing Meditation for those who grieve (Saltburn)

 

“Only people who are capable of loving strongly can also suffer great sorrow, but this same necessity of loving serves to counteract their grief and heals them.”

– Leo Tolstoi

Everyone who ever lost a loved one will certainly feel the truth in Leo Tolstoi words. Grief maybe is the love we had for each other and now just got no place to go anymore. Often it even feels as if this inner emptiness we experience will never ever be filled again.

TPPY Award Entries

Far too quickly we assume that our grief needs to be filled with something, it needs to go away, removed, locked up or left alone. Too much is the pain we find ourselves in when we grieve and too far away seems everything and everyone who offers a helping hand.

Grief comes in so many forms and furthermore it also can have many different reasons. The loss of a loved one, the break up from a relationship, unexpected circumstances which lead to changes in our lives that are out of our control can lead to grief as well.

Sometimes we grief for a job we lost, an opportunity we didn’t take or a second chance that we never got. And all of these situations do require our loving attention, our care and compassion. All our pain only heals if we give it space and time and furthermore if we see it as a part of ourselves, a part of life.

 

While we go through grief we can feel incredible alone and isolated. Nothing others can say or do will make our felt pain go away and no one will ever know when it will pass eventually. We often suffer in silence, when no one is watching. Times when we are allowed to be truly honest to ourselves and admit, yes, we are not okay and we don’t have to. We are out of order and we allowed to feel that way.

I created the Healing Meditation to offer a safe space in which we are able to work with our grief. Other than normal meditations we will not focus on calming our minds furthermore we will receive healing energies for all the parts that do grief within ourselves. Parts that have been neglected, lost, rejected and buried deep down in our souls.

                   Come and join us for this Healing Meditation 

    25th of February 2018 

          6pm – 7pm

at the Yoga, Meditation and Therapy Space

in Earthbeat Centre, Saltburn

These one hour sessions are very powerful and can be deeply transforming.
It is important for me that you are comfortable throughout the whole session, therefore bring what ever you need to feel comfy…from warm socks, jumper, pillow, blanket and your yoga mat.

You can sit or lay down during the session.

☆☆ Healing Meditation for Grief☆☆

In this session we will focus to bring healing to parts within ourselves that are grieving. No matter if we moan for the loss of a loved one, the end of a relationship, the state of the world or missed opportunities and second chances we didn’t take. Important is that we become aware of our grief, that we give it space and love. So it can be transformed and integrated into our whole being.

I will guide you into a state of deep relaxation in which you then will receive healing energies that I am channeling from the universe into the healing space for you.

This healing meditation session is limited to 8 participants. Everybody welcome.

☆☆☆ If you decide to come ☆☆☆

I would like you to bring a small or big stone from your home or one you collected from the beach or somewhere else. If you have time to paint it…please do so. If not, please at least put your name on it, with the intention that you will bring it to our healing meditation.

It is very important that we learn to embody our emotions no matter what they are. In this session the stone will help us with that.

☆☆☆ How to book ☆☆☆

This is a pre-booked session only because for the healing process we need to be committed. The moment you decide to come and pay the session you energetically comitt to the healing.

A session is 60min and is £10 (non-refundable)

You can pay via paypal, bank transfer or in cash if you local.

If for any reason you cant come to the healing meditation. You will still receive the healing energies from a distance and will feel the difference.

Please contact me for bookings and further details for this session.

You are entitled to be Angry by Franco Santoro

You are totally entitled to be angry and unforgiving towards people who hurt you as long as you don’t take revenge and hurt them in return.

Never feel guilty for being angry and upset with someone.

Your anger is sacred and real.

In this world of separation it is totally legitimate to be upset and angry.

When you cover it up with detachment, conventional good manners or haughty words about love, forgiveness and compassion, then your anger becomes very poisonous and perverted.

This type of undercover anger is what corrupts this world and kills your soul.

Capricorn by Franco Santoro

pic by healingstars.com

The sign Capricorn is rather controversial and complex as it represents the doorway into spirit and the relinquishment of the separate illusion of duality. The entrance of the Sun in Capricorn also coincides with the Winter Solstice, which is both the peak of darkness and the emergence of Light, the birthday of the Invincible Sun (click here for details).

The Tibetan Master, Djwhal Khul, considers Capricorn as the most mysterious of the twelve and a very difficult one to define.“Even the symbol of the sign has never been correctly drawn, we are told, because its correct delineation would produce an inflow of force that would be undesirable; also this symbol is sometimes called the <signature of God>“.

At first sight the glyph suggests the form of a leaping mountain goat and the typical tortuousness of the sign. Such arcane nature makes Capricorn susceptible of major projections and misunderstandings, so that it is often seen as scapegoat and also as one of the less popular sign of the Zodiac (together with Virgo and Scorpio).

pic by hindivarta.com

The seasonal period of Capricorn coincides with the arrival of the winter sleep and the quietness that facilitates inner work and planning for the next seasons to come. It is the phase when trees are like skeletons and the Earth appears naked, although in its depth the seeds are at work aiming at a remote as well as certain goal. From a spiritual perspective this is indeed the time of the highest flowering as the seeds of Aries reach here the end of their nine months’ labour.

This sign starts with the winter solstice, also called Sol Invictus and the Gate of Heaven. According to some esoteric traditions there are two major gates: the Gate of Cancer (gate of men), which leads into the physical dimension of separation and illusory perceptions of this planet, and the Gate of Capricorn (gate of heaven), the one leading to the spiritual kingdom of unity. This can be passed once the identification with the ego personality is over.

It is during the darkest moment of life that enlightening experiences can take place as well as the possibility to move to another level. Summer is apparently the most abundant, luminous and happy time of the year. Actually this is only what the physical body perceives. Winter is a time of coldness, darkness, introversion, withdrawal. Physical energy is at its lowest and this weakens the ego which thrives on the available exuberance of matter. It is in this context that spiritual energy may easily reach its peak.

It is part of the awareness of many esoteric traditions that darkness, depression, grievances and fear heralds the arrival of light, love and joy. When the Sun enters Capricorn it reaches its lower position in the northern hemisphere horizon, the Winter Solstice, and this also starts the solar cycle of ascension.

Healing Communication by Franco Santoro

Healing communication in this world involves a mere and ongoing exchange of unconditional blessings and forgiveness horizontally, amongst human beings. At the same time it implies releasing curses and grievances verticaly, towards those luminous dimensions which can transform them.

Once we start this process we simply keep confirming our blessings horizontally, while releasing grievances vertically. It does not matter how we refine and embellish our language. What counts is that the healing process takes place.

Once we learn to use language for this process, language will not be needed anymore. We will be the process.

I bless and forgive you and me unconditionally.
