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.

Simple Breath Technique to Erase Stress and Lose Weight


Screen Shot 2016-03-18 at 10.48.51 AMDid you know that stress is screwing with your physical health and body weight? I’m pretty sure that once you read how stress can sabotage your hormones (all linked to chakra centers), it will amaze you. And the deep breathing solution I’m going to share is so simple, it will amaze you too.

Stress is a double whammy for weight – it increases our appetites and leads to overeating or poor food choices, then makes our bodies hold on to the fat. The solution is not extreme dieting, which causes more stress, but knowing how to stop the stress reactions.

Cortisol, known as the “stress hormone,” starts signaling the body to replenish your food stores. Plus, it stimulates fat and carbohydrate metabolism for fast energy, and stimulates the release of insulin to maintain blood sugar levels. So, when stress causes your cortisol to surge, your appetite will be stimulated while your metabolism is slowed down, because your body wants to maintain an adequate supply of glucose to deal with the next “threat.”

So how can you tame the tension?

Take a Break and Breathe

Put your hands on your tummy, below your navel, and feel it rise and fall with your breath. We often breathe very shallowly or even hold our breath when we’re stressed. Simple deep belly breathing can both calm the release of stress chemicals in the body and oxygenate your cells.

Try this combination of breath and focused attention called Piko-piko breathing…

Piko-piko is a special Hawaiian breathing technique that simultaneously relaxes and energizes the body,” says Dr. Serge Kahili King, a Hawaiian shaman. Using shamanic techniques and chakra colors, imagine breathing in bright yellow energy from the sun into your Solar Plexus or navel area and breathing out your stress. Or pull in inspiration from the heavens, visualizing violet or white light coming in with the breath through the Crown Chakra, and exhale your stress by breathing it out with awareness at the bottom of your feet.

“I know, I know, this seems almost too simple,” says Dr. King. “But it does work.”

BREATHE OUT STRESS AND PAIN


Deep breathing is my favorite antidote to stress. I do two-part breathing – first into the belly and then into the lungs and out again – before meditation, during the day during stressful situations, and definitely when at the dentist’s office.

I am also a fan of Piko-piko breathing, used in the Hawaiian healing tradition. It is not only a stress reliever but a great aid in relieving pain as well.

Breathe in with your attention on your navel and breathe out with your attention on any part of your body that is in pain. Your imagination will help move healing energy along with your breath.

Make these deep breaths, moving your belly up and down (deep abdominal breathing oxygenates and relaxes your whole body). In another variation of Piko Piko, breathe in healing energy from the sky above and send any heavy energy with your breath out your feet to the center of the earth. You’ll be moving healing energy through the body, energizing your chakras and unblocking tension so your body can move into balance.

This is a perfect breathing exercise that takes less than a minute, can be done anytime, anywhere you need to relax, and is especially perfect before sitting down to meditate.
