This is the second in a series of posts of how we can help the people and the situation at Standing Rock, where indigenous people from all over the world, along with supporters, are peacefully protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline. These protesters have been brutally treated by local, state and national law enforcement fighters. But they continue to stand to protect the local tribe’s sacred land, as well as the cleanliness of their water for the next seven generations.
GLOBAL EFFORT TO HEAL THE SITUATION AT STANDING ROCK
This past weekend, there was a global prayer effort to support a peaceful resolution at Standing Rock. I met with a group of Hawaiian Huna (ancient healing philosphy) practitioners led by Hawaiian shaman, Serge Kahili King, Ph.D., of Aloha International, and discussed ways we can all use to send healing to this and other people and situations.
Dr. King shared the following technique for distant healing, similar to one he recently wrote about in his weekly post, Words from Serge, on Shamanic Healing in the Wake of a Disaster.
HEALING IN THE SYMBOLIC WORLD BY SERGE KAHILI KING:
A technique I use often is to ask for a symbol of the problem and once something appears in my mind, I accept it in whatever form it takes and proceed to change it. I might improve it, change the shape, the color, the material, almost sculpt with it.
For instance, in doing it right now for Standing Rock, I’ve asked for a symbol and I get a bunch of rock spires all tumbled in a heap. You don’t have to know what the symbol means. In this case it is obvious, but it could be anything.
I use whatever comes to mind to change the symbol of the problem – in this case, people, cranes, and bulldozers – to pull all those rocks upright and position them until I get a big sigh of relief or some pleasurable sensation. This tells me that my subconscious (or ku as we call it in Huna) has connected and something has happened.
The main thing is to take the symbol as it appears and change the symbol itself until you get a good feeling. I also trust that there will be change of some kind, but of course, probably not everything at once. All of these things are filled with tension in layers. You can work on each layer until you get the feeling that something has changed for the better… either between people, the situation or on a higher level.
This work is based on the idea that everything is connected, so that changing one thing changes every related thing, like the butterfly in Japan whose flight influences a storm in the Rocky Mountains.
