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?

PRAYER IS ENERGY HEALING IN ACTION

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.

Namaste!

Sending Healing to #StandingRock with Hawaiian Shaman Serge Kahili King


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

aloha-intlThis 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.

rocksI 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.

Sending Prayers and Healing Energy to #Standing Rock


screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-1-43-49-pmAlthough there’s been virtually no news coverage, I hope you are aware that indigenous people from all over the world, along with supporters, have encamped at Standing Rock in North Dakota and are being brutally treated by local, state and national law enforcement fighters. But the peaceful protesters continue to stand to protect the local tribe’s sacred land, as well as the cleanliness of their water for the next seven generations. Both are threatened by the Dakota Access Pipeline, which would transport oil derived from fracking beneath several rivers across North America.

Angel of Grace by Maya Sorensen

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. People from all over the globe joined together last Saturday to send prayers and healing energy to the protestors and the situation at Standing Rock.

As a chakra healer, I opened my heart chakra and visualized a green glow of love and harmony projected over all involved, to help them find a solution. For the protestors, I encased them in white light with green hearts to convert the energy coming toward them into love.

Distant Healing & Prayer – Proof that it Works

In Healing Words, Larry Dossey, M.D., reviewed over 100 experiments on the effects of prayer and visualization. More than half showed an effect on everything from seed germination to wound healing.

In several experiments, volunteers were able to stimulate or retard the growth of bacteria and fungi from 15 miles away.

In another study, volunteers were asked to visualize volunteers in another place become calmer or more agitated. Meanwhile, the “receivers” were hooked up to biofeedback-type equipment to gauge their reactions. The results showed that the “influencers” exerted a statistically significant effect on the receivers’ moods.

These experiments have shown that prayer can take many forms. Results occurred not only when people prayed for explicit outcomes. In fact, the experiments showed that just praying for the best outcome was even more powerful than when specific results were held in mind.

A simple attitude of empathy, caring, and compassion for the person, entity or situation, with mindfulness and intention to help, seemed to set the stage for healing.

Next Global Prayer Day: December 4

To help achieve a peaceful solution to the situation at Standing Rock, please join the second globally synchronized prayer which will be on December 4. Another will be held on United Nations Human Rights Day, December 10. According to the UN, the connection between sacred sites, water, cultural preservation, and the rights guaranteed by the Constitution, treaties, and national and international law, must be honored and respected as basic human rights. Learn more at www.praywithstandingrock.com

In the next several blogs, I will share other distant healing techniques used by shamans and energy healers that can be used for situations like Standing Rock and any others needing healing. If you’d like to share your technique(s), we welcome all input. Just email me at Becca@theChakras.org.

Namaste!
