The Shaman’s Gift of Healing, Page 1

09 May bowls

I apologize to my blog followers and readers for being so long in posting a new article. We’ve been on a trip to the Pacific Northwest Coast to spend time with our boys and grandchildren in Oregon and California. It’s good to be back and writing again. 

I’ve been called a shaman because I use frequency-shifting sound healing and subtle energy attunement techniques in my work as a healer. But I know from my own profound experience over fifty years of service to humanity that there’s something deeper and more to the purpose of healing than the modality of technique in the healing work of a true shaman. A true shaman offers healing of the rift between two worlds. The invisible world of Reality, wherein lies the divine design for perfect health and happiness, and the visible world of ailing flesh, suffering only from a separation from its Creator. That separation, however, is but an illusion — an illusion, nevertheless, that shapes the flesh and the world in which it suffers. In the real world, there is no separation. This paradoxical condition is what sets up the illusion out of which we turn heaven into a hell here on earth. It is the shaman’s role to transcend the illusory world and stand in divine identity in the invisible realm of spirit to facilitate the shaping of patterns of light to the unique healing needs of his client. I was confirmed in this awareness as I read Hugh Malafry’s novels.  

THE BLUE SHAMAN

I’ve just finished my second reading of the first book of Hugh Malafry’s trilogy Blue Shaman, The Stone of Sovereignty, and started my second reading of book two, Caverns of Ornolac. As in all second readings of a thrilling and complex novel, I saw so much more than what I did in my first reading. 

What draws me back to this author’s trilogy is the otherworldly setting for a very complex story. To sojourn in another world, the world of the shaman, is such a refreshing reprieve from the world of CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News; even BBC and PBS. That world has little to offer of hope for the future of mankind. The Real world is the invisible one, coverage of which is virtually impossible by any news agency. Malafry does exactly that, interweaving morsels of profound wisdom and simple truths as he unfurls a dialogue between characters. Here are a few of those jewels of wisdom:

“Sometimes a life’s work takes more than a life’s time.” 

“Time yields to purpose.”

“To weave light in patterns, tie water in knots, and shape the ten thousand things.” [A worthy, though rightly ambitious, sense of mission and purpose.]

“Give me your heart,” Maia said [to Caron, the blue shaman], “and I will shape a world for you. . . .  It is no more than any woman asks of a man to whom she gives herself.”

Was it any wonder men shy from giving their heart to women: One moment she was lamb, another lion, and one never knew when one or the other might rise in her or to what end.

. . . when you have lost your centering in life, everywhere is nowhere, and the world is desolate.

“Is it not the way of the warrior to be at peace within, even when he knows he must fight?”

“Can you make whole what has been broken?”  [Lady Esclarmonde asks the blue shaman. His reply is wise.]  “God has made a whole and it cannot be otherwise,” he said. “I will give it to God: He will determine in this matter what is to be.”

“You must let go your shadow. To cross over [into the “In-world”] you must see yourself on the other side.”

“Always walk into the light.” [Even though — and particularly when — you know you will lose your life and all that you have invested in making yourself into who and what you think you are . . . and your life will never be the same.]

Life on this side of the veil that separates us from the “In-world” is portrayed in the story of the blue shaman as the illusion it is. What separates also connects. There is something most wonderful on the other side of the veil. The loss of illusion, for one thing, though probably scary for mortals who find meaning and purpose in making one’s way through the shadows of the mind-made world of survival. That mortal, the human ego, feels justifiably threatened by the Light at the end of the tunnel described by those who tell of their near-death encounters, because it knows that it’s curtains for it. I wonder if I will feel that same hesitancy the blue shaman had to walk into the light when I make my transition from this world to the world of Light. Not so much, I should think, for someone who has walked into the Light of Reality in the face of sure loss of his world as he knows it in order to discover and realize who he is as a divine being. The story takes you to such a place in consciousness.

THE INSEPARABLE MALE AND FEMALE

For me, the entire trilogy is a story about the relationship between the masculine and feminine as they partner in shaping their worlds. It seems the Orion shaman is always being challenged to master the sweet influences of his Pleiadian counterpart — who seems, interestingly enough, always to live in the Otherworld, which dynamic of the story tends to suggest that our “soul mates” do not incarnate with us. Hmm. Another interesting portrayal of the male-female relationship is that it’s always feminine entities who meet and greet the shaman at the threshold between the worlds to clear him for worthiness of passage and to guide him in his journey. It is through the heart, love’s domain and our feminine part, that we enter the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.” — Jesus

There’s truth to this in the way a woman tests her man before allowing him into her heart and inner sanctum as a worthy partner in creating her world in what is obviously a man’s world. Malafry portrays this “battle of the sexes,” but not without resolution.  I love his resolution toward the end of the book. Much like the riddle of getting the goose out of the bottle without killing the goose or breaking the bottle, at some level — like before the riddle maker created the illusion of a goose in a bottle — the goose is not in the bottle. Likewise, at some level there is no “battle of the sexes” but only the thrilling heavenly experience of a shared creativity. Again I say “Hmm.” 

TO RESTORE PARADISE — THE GRAIL QUEST

The most captivating chapter for me was “The Shaman,” because I could relate to the challenges of the shaman.  There’s a dialogue in it that alludes to a time when time and death were not and yet humans thought to change and improve upon their lives in Paradise. Whether or not one subscribes to this version of human history, Malafry weaves a believable and likely scenario of mankind’s fall from grace and stature. The path of the shaman is driven by an insatiable desire to make things right again and restore the world of mankind to the paradise of “The First Time.” Restoring the elusive Holy Grail of the blue “Stone of Sovereignty” into the hands of the Knights Templar for its ultimate return to the “Sisters of the Blood Royal” and the Grail King, is the blue shaman’s mission and purpose — very similar to that of Frodo in Lord of the Rings, as is the promise: the restoration of life and prosperity to Paradise.

As Malafry tells it, the story of the fall from grace is a haunting one for me, as if at some level in my consciousness I know I was there in the Beginning and when things literally went to hell.  I’ll let you read it as he tells it.

As in the Lord of the Rings where the ring is coveted for its power, shaman Morgon Kara takes the blue stone in his hands as the blue shaman Caron slept before his fire after he had rescued him from certain death.  The following dialogue is between Morgon Kara and Maia, his guide and empowering partner in shaping worlds to their own end. (I’ll have to share this excerpt on multiple pages.)

Perplexed, Morgon Kara opened his hand and held the jewel to the fire. It glowed with an inner fire that drew him deep into its triangular planes of light. Most precious stones were empty vessels, nothing more than the trace of their own experience as they passed age-to-age, hand to hand. But he knew the ancients had altered some to make record, others as focalizations of force, and a very few for use in the shaping of essence. This stone was all that and more, but never before had anything so eluded him. He sought the pattern of things that shimmered within, but could resolve nothing in the tantalizing play of light and shadow that beckoned but would not reveal. Even so, the stone was bound to Caron and would not let him die.

“Erlik Khan in his castle of black clay has reached out for you, but he is denied. Can a man defy death?” He knew something of the stone, for Maia had spoken of it, and he had long hoped it would come to his hand. He might have taken it from Hassan, but Maia said it destroyed those to whom it was not given; and though he doubted her in this, she had spoken of it with such awe, he feared to cross her was to lose her.

“There is a stone, in the old tongue called, Uru An-Na, light of heaven,” she had said. “It is in the world, and the world is in it.  This stone has the virtue to bind, loose and shape the world within, and so shape what is in the world without.”

“You are speaking in riddles, Maia,” he had said.

“It is exactly as I have said. In Uru An-Na the Ancients shaped the Holy Norm for this world. It exists so that no matter what is done by man, the patterns of Uru AnNa will prevail, and they have done this so that the earth shall not fail. Uru AnNa is the seal of the Makers, and a bar to the final trespass of the human will.”

“We must have this stone.”

“And it is well we should,” Maia agreed, “for the Sisters must yield to him who masters its influences. But the stone will not be taken by force.”

Morgon Kara closed his hand about the stone, remembering what Maia had told him. “Riddles, Maia, always riddles,” he always complained, but he had heard every word, and could repeat them still verbatim, even if he did not always at once understand her meaning. This was surely that stone. Hassan had taken it from a victim, who doubtless took it from another, but now it had been given to the one who had come across the wilderness in search of the lost Hallow of the Blood Royal.

Morgon Kara returned the jewel to the pouch at Caron’s neck . . . .

“Tell me again of the stone of the Makers.”

“I have told you the truth of Uru An-Na,” she said.

“Tell me again, how by its use the Ancients shaped living forms animated by fire from the center of the earth.”

“If it is as you have said what need of me?” It was her ritual to object. She would be courted. It was his ritual to reply. “It is for you, beloved, I seek understanding.”

Grounding Cosmic Energy

 Our Milky Way Galaxy

To remain in altered states for long periods of time without grounding oneself in the lower Earth vibrations does create real field problems, and disturbances in the alkaline-acid balance in the blood. (Valerie Hunt)

 Subtle energy, when rarefied, tends to ascend taking spiritualized substance with it.  Ascension of rarefied spiritual substance ideally occurs during an attunement session, but not always.  When it does, it creates a bridge between heaven and earth across which healing currents of divine love descend upon mortal flesh. This can be a bit ungrounding, both for practitioner and client, but especially for the client. Grounding, then, is helpful, even essential, in bringing a person back down to earth.

I know that working with sound as a carrier wave for these healing currents, especially the higher tones of the small metal bowls and tuning forks, can be very ungrounding for my client.  I use a very low frequency (64 hertz) “C” body-tuner (tuning fork) on top of the feet in closing a session, holding the bottom of the foot with my other hand, to remind my clients that they have feet, a gentle way to end a session with a touch of light humor to ease their re-entry into the mundane world.   Besides feeling wonderful, the lower frequency of the body-tuner is felt throughout the bones of the skeleton when transmitted by the body-tuner into the bones of the feet. Bones, especially those in our feet, are very much grounded in the minerals of the earth.  Another very endearingly grounding technique is to take the client’s feet into my hands and gently squeeze them, starting with the ankles and moving toward the toes.  A drink of cold water and a walk around the room barefooted–or, better yet, on a lawn if available–also helps bring one down to earth.

[Here’s some beautiful flute music by my friend, and muse, Norm Smookler, his latest release on You Tube: Sound Attunement ]

Speaking of minerals and the earth, this would be a good time to consider the role of the mineral kingdom in bringing cosmic energy and forces into the earth and thereby into the vegetable and animal kingdoms.  It seems that the rocks ground and radiate cosmic forces.  Likewise, the minerals in our bodies ground and conduct cosmic forces through them. Without a sufficient quantity and balance of these minerals, we would not be able to handle the power of these cosmic forces.

In her mind-engaging book,  Infinite Mind – Science of the Human Vibrations of Consciousness,  Dr. Valerie Hunt addresses with some depth of understanding the phenomenon of the alkaline-acid balance of the blood being disturbed during long visits to higher planes in “altered states” of consciousness.  The pH (potential of Hydrogen) of the blood ideally stays a little on the acid side, which allows it to absorb minerals.  The body spares no cost in keeping the blood pH balanced, the only condition that allows for the absorption of vitamins and minerals.

Now, acid-alkaline balance allows for the flow of energy through connected fields of positively and negatively charged molecles.  Acids have a positive charge and bring a stimulating influence to the cells along with a coherent energy of attraction. Alkaline minerals have a negative charge, bringing a calming influence to the cells, as well as a grounding for positively charged atoms and a responsive field that is drawn toward the positive field of the acids. This is how a balance in blood chemistry is maintained, as well as in the flow of energy through the body.

This balance can be upset by dietary and lifestyle improprieties, such as toxins in foods, beverages, polluted air, and tobacco and other consciousness altering drugs.  It is also disturbed when alkaline reserves are depleted in the body, either from a high acid-ash diet of meats and grains which draws heavily on these reserves, or simply from not eating enough mineral-rich foods — or both.  Minerals are so lacking in the modern American diet that supplementation is wise.

I recommend Min-Tran ($20/330 tabs.), a combination of Organically Bound Minerals ($13/90 tabs.) and Calcium Lactate, ($20/330 tabs.) and Trace Minerals B12 ($15/90 tabs.) by Standard Process Labs. Drop me an order by email (tpal70@gmail.com) and I’ll have it to you in a few days.

This imbalance in blood chemistry can easily be rectified and prevented by taking in a balanced amount of electrolytes (acids and alkalizing minerals).  Acids will be found in fruits like oranges and alkalizing minerals in organic vegetables grown in mineral rich soil.  Lemons and limes are balanced, so lemon aide and lime aide with a little sea salt and cane sugar or honey make great electrolyte replenishing beverages.

A word to the wise subtle energy worker:  If ever you or your client experience faint or a drain of energy, even loose consciousness – “zone out” into an “altered state” – during an attunement, then look to this factor and consider organic mineral supplementation for both you and your client before having another session.  Have some lemon or lime aide on hand.  But most importantly, learn and use grounding techniques to bring your client down to earth where cosmic energies and the spiritual energies can be grounded.  Heaven and earth, after all, are one and are best experienced by human beings that way.

Of course, if you are a well-grounded person and wise energy worker who has learned to approach your clients with a radiant regard toward what they bring in the way of health issues, as opposed to a responsive posture toward the client’s problematic issues and a sympathetic desire to fix the problem and heal the client, then you are not likely to lose your footing in the earth and drift off with your client into altered states.  Our job, as we seasoned practitioners have learned, is to hold a fully conscious point of orientation and provide a solid vibrational anchor for the client while they go through changes in their energetic field and physical body.

I would like to delve more deeply into this subject matter, if you are willing to take a little side trip with me.  I am going to share with you an excerpt from my book, Sacred Anatomy, wherein I describe the individual function of the 12 organic minerals and a few of the 72 trace minerals within the context of a meditation on the sacred anatomy of our body temples.  Apparently, it takes that many varied organic and trace minerals to step down and differentiate the powerful forces moving through the cosmos in our bodies.  The excerpt isn’t long for a book, but it is for a blog.  So, I’ll start it in my next post and see how and where it goes from there. I think you will enjoy the meditation.

Healing for the Healer

       Subtle Energy work is just that.  It’s subtle and therefore calls for subtlety of perception and translucency of personal physical-mental presence. The healer must let the light of love shine through his/her own human capacities . . . and more.  The healer must BE the light that is shining through and not just a “channel” for the light.  

      How does one BE what one does not know from experience one is?  By simply stepping back from identity with the physical channel and standing in the position of the Healer.  I am Love offering the healing ray of light and not merely a channel for the healing current.  My human capacity is a channel.  I am the healing current. 

       In that stance of identity, the Healer’s heart and hands become radiant instruments for clear perception of what subtle patterns are at play in the energetic and physical bodies of the recipient. Transparency of mind, devoid of agenda of its own, opens a portal in consciousness for translucence of the physical channel.  Translucence of the physical channel lets the light of love shine through.  The light of love generates the subtle substance of pneumaplasm* that allows for luminosity, clear perception and appropriate ministration of the subtle healing currents.  

PREPARING FOR A HEALING SESSION

     Various practices are used by us all to prepare ourselves for an attunement healing session.  There is none more effective than living in attunement with Love twenty-four-seven as a way of life.

     I came upon a passage in Dr. Valerie Hunt’s** Infinite Mind – Science of the Human Vibrations of Consciousness (Malibu Publishing Co.) that speaks to this topic in depth.  I’ll share the passage with you so as to preserve its clarity and allow you to discern for yourself its meaning and application in your life of service.  So here it is.

A beautifully spiritual Jewish healer used meditation to cleanse herself before healing. Her frequent image of Jesus, while it seemed to hold great meaning, perturbed her because of her religious background. At first she adamantly rejected the Christ symbol. At one stage she sought professional help to understand. Finally she received the key: the Christ was a powerful symbol of love which could rule over death. With acceptance of the power of love, her capacities as a healer bloomed. At times when she entered a room, healing took place.

A psychologist, David McClelland, discovered a phenomenon now called “Mother Teresa’s effect.” When Harvard University students watched a British Broadcasting Corporation documentary of this remarkable nun, their immune systems produced more immunogloblin A, an antibody which fights colds. He concluded that despite some students’ dislike of the film, the filth of the surroundings or Mother Teresa’s techniques, the strength of her “tender, loving care” boosted their immune systems.

Actually, spiritual, mystic, and energy processes are not different. They refer to the different ways that the healer prepares himself, and to how he explains his results. In actuality, every fine healer uses all of these modes. Each expands his level of awareness into the mystical, raises his vibrations to the level where he can communicate with divine vibrations, experience lovingness and sense the healee’s vibrations as he creates a vibratory field. 

During healing, the awareness state is not an everyday one; creating this state sometimes takes time. Therefore, it is understandable that some healers develop elaborate rituals to get themselves prepared; but probably these do not directly determine the results of the healing.

Some healers pray for divine guidance and ask that nothing from their field except the positive energy be allowed to enter the healee. These healers do not understand that nothing from their field can enter another unless the other allows it to do so — unless his field resonates with the healer’s. Therefore, the healer had best concentrate on radiating the purest and the highest vibrations, rather than dwelling upon such personal rituals.

The emotionally appealing humbleness of saying that one is only a channel, a conduit, or an inert circuit is also not helpful in a healing relationship. If your presence assists healing, you are more than a mechanical circuit; you are an important link; you are divine energies manifest. While you can be humble in view of the profound changes which take place, you are dynamically a part of what happens. To acknowledge it strengthens you. To be “merely a channel” weakens you.

Many healers diagnose disease by screening the body with both their hands and their mind. This can create a problem if it locks the healer into the old disease concept approach. In most instances, except possibly injury, the problem is first a field — and secondarily a tissue-disturbance. The overall field must be changed if there is to be more than just a change in symptoms. Likewise, the field carries both general and specific information about the illness. Some trained healers feel heat or cold in the area of pain, interpreting heat to mean inflammation and cold to be stagnation or lack of circulation. Prickly feelings are interpreted as regrowth. Others see forms in the energy field — blocks, breaks, colors and shapes. Over time, healers learn to associate these with symptoms and diagnoses. These are elaborately described in Barbara Brennan’s book, Hands of Light and Rosalyn Bruyere’s book, Wheels of Light.

The capacity to look into the body and see with the penetration of a microscope is wondrous, but may also seduce a healer into becoming involved with the material, spatial aspect of illness. This emphasizes the disease element rather than its source or the goal, health. There are healers who lightly record all these sensory impressions, not working on anyone in particular, but allowing their attention to culminate in the wisdom of knowing. This makes beginning healers insecure; but it offers the greatest security for the highly evolved. 

     There is a certain security afforded by the attunement server’s motto, “Let love radiate without concern for results.”  While this motto may help us keep our mental hands off of the attunement process, it may also keep the practitioner locked into the limiting role of being the channel, or conduit, only of the healing current. For that matter, even the word “practitioner” could accomplish this limiting fixation in consciousness.  

Be the light of your world.  It’s what and who you ARE. No greater privilege do we have as Healers but to be who and what we are to our worlds of service.  In this lies healing for the Healer.  

We will continue along this vein of consideration of Healing for the Healer in the next blog post.  Here’s a sampling of some of the wisdom we will share:

To remain in altered states for long periods of time without grounding oneself in the lower Earth vibrations does create real field problems, and disturbances in the alkaline-acid balance in the blood. (V. Hunt)

 So, stay tuned.  ‘Til then,

Be love . . . be loved.
