Increase Your Own Energy to Heal Others

On Sunday afternoon, after the Global Prayer Effort, we received the good news that the Army Corps of Engineers said they would stop construction of the North Dakota Pipeline through Sioux land and do an environmental impact report for rerouting it.  However, the peaceful protesters are staying in camp because Energy Transfer Partners stated that they “are fully committed to ensuring that this vital project is brought to completion and fully expect to complete construction of the pipeline without any additional rerouting in and around Lake Oahe. Nothing this Administration has done today changes that in any way.”

As we did a healing circle to send energy to the protesters and the situation at Standing Rock, Susan Pa’iniu Floyd, a Hawaiian Shaman and teacher of Kino Mana bodywork with Aloha International, shared her method of distant healing.

Distant Healing Technique from Susan Floyd*:

First, I’ve learned I need to practice releasing tension within myself first, with happy woman standing on a sunset in ocean wavestechniques I’ve learned from Serge Kahili King, usually Piko Piko breathing (visualize breathing in energy from the top of your head and releasing it through the bottom of your feet, like bringing in energy through the crown chakra and releasing all tension through the root chakra), and self-massage.

My mission is to get myself into a high state of energy by releasing my own tension, so then I can focus on healing for who and where I want to help on the planet.

The focus on others has as much energy as you have to share. If we don’t have a lot of energy vibrations here, we’ll have less to send them.

In the case of Standing Rock, I’m thinking of everyone there in a state of absolute harmony, relaxation on all sides, because there’s so many people with different points of view. We have a lot of good people there but we’re not finding the right way to communicate yet.

In sending healing energy, we’re sending the thought, the focus. (The Hawaiian Huna principle of Makia applies here: Energy flows were attention goes. So focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want.)

We need to focus on the goodness we have and the goodness we want. I’m sending energy waves with a lot of good thoughts to help all involved get back into a state of relaxation, remembering who they are. We have to see a higher vision.

This is my commitment to the world now – to release my own tension so that I’m able to give more.

Join the Global Healing Prayer for #StandingRock Sunday, Dec 4

Many people would agree that prayer alone will not solve all of our problems, but to the water protectors at Standing Rock, direct action is considered sacred and prayer can be action, taking a stand for protecting what is sacred, together.


To help achieve a peaceful solution to the situation at Standing Rock, please join the second globally synchronized prayer which will be Sunday, December 4. Learn more at www.praywithstandingrock.com

The first Global Synchronized Prayer was Nov 26th where thousands gathered worldwide at community events to pray and meditate together or from their own homes. Click here to listen to the November 26th prayer led by indigenous leader Ivan Looking Horse.

How can prayer help such a dire situation where peaceful protesters are being violently assaulted by local, state and federal agents?


Do you get discouraged if your prayers aren’t immediately answered? The problem may be that we are praying for God or a higher being to do something which it is not in its nature to do… take direct action vs. inspire and guide us to make the right choices.

Serge Kahili King, Ph.D., teacher of the Hawaiian Huna Philosophy and head of Aloha International wrote On Prayer at www.Huna.org:

In prayer we are trying to do something or to get something done, either for ourselves or for someone else. We pray to get an effect, and since an effect is involved, energy has to be involved, and all prayer involves the transmission of energy, [in this case toward the people and situation at Standing Rock].

In the prayer form known as the Lord’s Prayer that is found in the Christian Bible, Jesus states that we should ask for energy (“our daily bread”), cleansing (forgiveness), and guidance. A little further on in the chapter of Luke (11), Jesus makes the famous statement about, “Ask, and it shall be given unto you….” This has been taken to mean that you can ask God for anything you like and you will get it, although in practice it obviously doesn’t work out that way. The reason is revealed only a few lines further. What is to be given is the Holy Spirit. In other words, energy, ideas, and inspiration. We find this same idea in the Old Testament, in Sufi, Hindu, and Chinese writings, as well as in Hawaiian – namely that what we receive from above is the wisdom and the power to act. But it is we who must do the acting.

This brings us to the point of fact that there are essentially two types of prayer: vertical and horizontal. By vertical prayer, I mean that which is directed toward God or the Higher Self or toward someone in spirit. From this type of prayer we can only get inspiration, knowledge, understanding, and energy. Note carefully that the guidance we may get is in the form of ideas and inspiration. We do not actually get the kind of guidance that tells us exactly what to do and how to do it. That kind of guidance implies the making of choices, and that is our sole prerogative.

Horizontal prayer is that directed toward our everyday life, either to heal or help ourselves or others, or to change the future. This type of prayer is accomplished by us, and its effectiveness is determined by our beliefs and by the amount of energy we put into it. We each create our own experience of reality, the circumstances we find ourselves in, and through prayer properly understood we can change those circumstances. But it is the individual who changes the circumstances, not God and not the High Self. From them we only get the tools; they will not do the work for us.

Please join in prayer for Standing Rock so that all involved get the guidance to resolve the situation in a peaceful, environmentally-conscious manner. And please invite your friends to help positively impact the momentum of Standing Rock.

The Chakra Energy Diet : The Right Food, Relaxation, Yoga & Exercise To Look and Feel your Best!

The Chakra Energy Diet coverBefore I began writing The Chakra Energy Diet, I had a long learning curve where nutrition is concerned. If you’ve read my personal story in The Chakra Diaries and Chakra Secrets, you’ll know that my weight seesawed up and down along with my insecurities, romantic dramas, self-confidence, and mindfulness. A health scare led me to start my nutrition education and to understand that I needed to love my body, at every moment, unconditionally.

When faced with surgery for an ovarian cyst, I decided to listen and learn about a whole foods Macrobiotic diet. I immersed myself in a six-month cooking and counseling program and began eating “real” foods, not packaged “food-like” products. When I checked back with my physician three months later, he said the first ultrasound must have been in error, because there was now no sign of a cyst or of a hormonal imbalance. I had heard many anecdotes of “spontaneous remissions” of all kinds of problems among my new Macrobiotic friends, so I was not as surprised as my doctor.

“Let food be thy medicine” began to make sense to me.

Munching on bright orange carrot sticks had become my replacement for less than healthy snack foods. I realized it was no coincidence that I craved orange foods – orange is the color of the Sacral Chakra, associated with gynecological problems.

I integrated my newfound nutrition knowledge into my chakra balancing practice. In this book, I also recommend you eat “real,” “clean” food that contains the energy you need to keep up your vitality and health, replacing processed and refined foods – physical stressors that can keep you locked in a never-ending cycle of binging and dieting.

In Balance Your Chakras, Balance Your Life, I teach an “instant healing” technique that can be used to balance your emotional, mental, spiritual and physical bodies – which are all connected to your chakras. If you’ve already learned it, guess what? You can also use this Dynamind technique to stop food cravings related to stressed-out chakras. In The Chakra Energy Diet, I also share other stress-relieving techniques from Serge Kahili King, PhD, that you can use to heal your body, soothe your emotions, master your mind, and spark your spirit.

Yes, chronic stress is at the root of dis-ease and chakra imbalance, and at the root of eating disorders, weight problems, self-criticism of our bodies and obsession with dieting.

All energy comes from the light of the sun, which puts nutrients in the plants we eat, plants that vibrate with different colors, just like our chakras. Eating a rainbow of colors is important to keep the chakras balanced. After a discussion in The Chakra Energy Diet of what could be causing you to be imbalanced, I offer a plan to “feed” your chakras with high quality energy.

I’m excited to share with you what I have learned from my own missteps, the journeys of my clients, and from a host of teachers, including Serge Kahili King, PhD, a psychologist and Hawaiian healer, founder of Aloha International, and Ann Doherty, RN, CDE, who has taught “The Art of Stress Management” at the Hawaii Health Getaway for the last 15 years, and daily at the Sutter Health Diabetes Center in Berkeley, California.

The Chakra Energy Diet is now available on Amazon Kindle for download to any reading device or computer, at a special launch-week discount… and a BONUS: Free Menu Plans specific to your chakra imbalances.
