Healing Hazards

morning glory

Recently, Dorothy Rowe made a video called The Three Greatest Dangers of Energy Healing. I know some of you are following her work but I wanted to point out this insightful video. The issues revolve around correct understanding of the healing process so we don’t mis-credit its source or misunderstand what we’re doing. These misunderstandings can lead to side-effects and problems with healing due to an incorrect relationship with the process. The fix is easy but needs to be conscious. I’ll let her explain.

The Association of Professional Spiritual Teachers

APST Panel

Through the cycle of descending ages, most spiritual traditions came to overemphasize the masculine – both in approach and in domination by men. This has led to drier, more austere forms of spirituality and issues with repression. Those traditions cultured well-prepared teachers though. Teaching did not begin until they were trained and deemed ready by their mentors. Rising consciousness is bringing a gradual restoration of the feminine. This means healing emotions, relationships, and raising women into leadership roles. It also leads to a much richer unfolding when both our masculine and feminine aspects are supported. Today we see many independent … Continue Reading…

The Apaurusheya Bhashya

ADSR

One of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s gifts to the world was a simple technique to go beyond the mind and transcend. This is pure Yoga. Another great gift was of understanding. He brought a vision to the ancient texts that shed immense light on their deeper meanings. One aspect of the second was his early ’80’s cognition of the uncreated commentary of the Rig Veda. He found that the layout of the text also described the text. The structure was a commentary on itself and on the dynamics of creation. He called this The Apaurusheya Bhashya. Apaurusheya means “not of a … Continue Reading…

The Unbalanced Masculine

I often write articles about personal inner work but current events are bringing large shadows to the surface. It’s important to talk about so we have a reasonable perspective on the issues being highlighted.   For a long time, the masculine has been dominant in global cultures. This takes the form of a dominant 3rd chakra. This has led to an emphasis on power, the mind, and in the West, individuality – the personal self. Culturally, we’re like pre-teens focused on me. This is an evolutionary step up from survival and tribal cultures. But if it becomes entrenched, it becomes … Continue Reading…

Nature Begins

Droplet

I’ve written before about the 7 koshas or sheathes. Each of these are progressively smaller and denser layers. They arise from the dynamics of consciousness and end up as ourselves and the apparent material world. Apparent because it has no reality in itself. It is the surface appearance of much deeper dynamics. Another perspective is that of Nature. We can see Nature as the “forces and processes that produce and control all the phenomena” of the world. We might see Nature as the sum of all the laws of nature. But it’s more true to see Nature as that which … Continue Reading…

Balance allows Transformation

metal disc

Life founds spiritual evolution on the cycle of growth: balance, dissolution, growth, integration, and return to balance. You can also see these as maintenance, destruction, creation, and a return to maintenance. Transformation and reintegration are founded on the starting point. Growth builds on the prior balance. Life moves in steps like this so the refined aspects of our being can be sustained. We’re able to integrate the changes progressively, even if they feel like a stretch sometimes. Dust may obscure things temporarily but the fine feelings remain intact. Our various aspects can be at different points on the growth cycle. … Continue Reading…

Types of Spaces

I’ve written before about nested space. Every object we experience arises near instantly and in every moment in layers. We’re all familiar with how everything is made of subatomic particles, atoms, and molecules, but this is a scale. Everything also has layers of expression, from an impulse in consciousness though vibration, structure, field, and into form. The level of vibration happens within space. Each object arises in a space from a vibration which then gains structure, fields, and form as it expresses forward through the layers. Some objects express all the way into “earth”, the physical. Other things don’t express … Continue Reading…

Smooth Loops

Traprain Law

On a grand scale, life moves in vast contractive and expansive cycles. We can say the Divine flows down from greater than infinity into a point of life and experiencing we know as the soul, ourselves. Every point then expands out into expression and infinite thoughts, emotions, forms, and experiences. Simultaneously, that infinity of outward expression turns back in on itself, collapsing back to a point of knowing which collapses back into infinite wholeness and the source from which the process begins. These are the vast flows of life out into expression and back to source.   However, when some aspect … Continue Reading…

The Healing Algorithm

I often get questions about energy healing as I regularly mention its importance. My process is largely self-learned and informal, adapting to what is arising. I’ve not developed a specific formula. Essentially, I notice a sensation or emotion arising in day-to-day life that has a flavour of resistance, allow it to be expressed and it resolves. With a little practice, this becomes mostly automatic. We shift from repressing to releasing. I don’t go looking for contraction, I just notice them when life events bring them up. If you have not yet woken, you may also notice a flavour of grasping … Continue Reading…

On Animals

In a recent discussion, animals came up and I thought it worth touching on a few points. DNA tells us that animals are built of the same stuff as we are. We also share a lot of the same DNA blueprint. Similarly, animals have souls, chakras, feel pain & emotions, have thoughts, and have many of the features we attribute to humans. Yet most animals live in the flow of life. Humans are distinct because we have the gift of perception of free will plus the higher intellect. This gives us the opportunity to understand and change the world but … Continue Reading…

The Bailiwick

There are some curious paradoxes that arise as we grow spiritually. For example, knowing we are not the body-mind yet experiencing through it anyway. Or knowing the world was never created in the first place, yet living in it. Or why creation repeats if it’s completed by our experiences of it. Another one came into focus during a conversation the other night. On the one hand, the cycles of time and rising and falling consciousness directly relate to the position of this planet in this solar system in this galaxy. A planet in another solar system in our galaxy will … Continue Reading…

Relative Orientation

Nested Dolls

This is another one of those more abstract explorations. The levels of creation are present both globally and within the nested spaces of our expression, this body-mind. There is globally self-aware consciousness within which are creations. Within our creation is multiple universes. Within our universe is many scales of nested spaces – galactic clusters, galaxies, star systems, and stars and planets. Simultaneously, we also scale up. We have a physical body, an energy body, a mental body, and so forth. These spaces or sheathes are inter-nested with the object spaces above. (Life forms have an energy system that non-life forms … Continue Reading…
