Sound Matters

Are you aware of the power of sound vibrations in shifting consciousness? It is phenomenal. Scientists are just beginning to get a clue. But our spiritual forefathers have known of it all along. Hence the idea of the 'word' of God to start the process of creation. Hence the hymns and the chants.

Through the power of the voice we have traditionally reached for higher consciousness. We sing, we chant, we invoke, invite, praise and thank. We have done it in groups and in our privacy. And we have learned that few things touch our hearts as much as song. The energy that is present in the non-physical realm must come together and congeal in order to take us to higher ground.

This was the central piece in the Sound Healing workshop with Jonathan Goldman last weekend. The gist of sound matters is that we can embed an intention in a particular sound or phrase. And as we chant that sound over and over again, we bring the vibration of that reality closer and closer together. And soon we have drawn it into the realm of three dimensional reality.

We increase the power multifold when we practice this in groups.

But that is not all. Every word we speak carries that power. The spoken word multiplies the thought vibration many times over and sends it forth to manifest in the universe. And when it is embedded with heartfelt intention and belief, it must come into being. Such is the law of the universe.

And we have everything we need -- we have our voice, each one of us. It is a divine gift. It is one of the most powerful tools to aid us in uplifting our consciousness. It is also our responsibility. What words are we uttering? Are they uplifting, embedded with love and joyous expectancy? Or are we perpetuating the old patterns by giving constant voice to that which we wish to change?

The throat center is the gateway of the divine will. Isn't it time to pay attention to what passes through it?

Reviving Body Memory

Last weekend Master Chunyi Lin, acclaimed Qi-kung healer and teacher, conducted a 'Born a Healer' workshop in Iowa. Of the myriads of precious nuggets of information he shared, a few stand out. One such was the idea of reviving the body's memory. It was a special 'aha' moment for me.

This is how it goes. Let's say you have a bad knee. Conventional wisdom says to focus on that knee, whether you are treating it with western medicine, surgery or with massage, Reiki, or essential oils. Master Lin said something surprising. He said tap on the bad knee, acknowledge the problem and tell your knee that help is on its way. Then remove your attention and focus on the good knee. Gently and lovingly masssage it. Heighten the good feeling even more all the while apprecating it. Do this for a couple of minutes. Then go back and tap the bad knee and tell it that it can go ahead and 'completely' feel like the other knee. And then sit back and watch the magic.

No joke folks. It works. I experienced just that. According to Master Lin there is an innate intelligence in each organ and the ability to go back to normalcy. Often the memory of normalcy recedes because of the pain and trauma. We are just supporting it in remembering and restoring the blue print. You may have to do it a few times.

What happens if you have a chest pain, or a headache? You can then focus on another healthy organ nearby, like on the stomach for a chest pain, or on the face for a headache.

Makes perfect sense, does it not? And as Master Lin says, 'Believe it and it works. Don't beleive it, it still works, but it works better when you do believe'. Give it a go folks, what have you to lose?

Jyoti's Dilemma on Receiving Gifts

Jyoti wrote: 'Sometimes I get gifts for which I have no use although the gifts in themselves may be beautiful and interesting. But now I want very few selective things around me. But I don't have the courage to tell people directly about this. Of course I drop hints. But that doesn't seem to be working. So what I do is give them away to someone else when an occassion comes like birthdays etc. Is this wrong ? Am I passing the good will and love of people unknowingly? I definitely donot want to accumulate things which I will never use. What is your advise ?'

Focus on the love, the concern, the connection the gift represents, and not on the thing per se. Receive with gratitude. Cherish the thought behind the gift and don't look merely for its utility value. Then feel free to keep it or give it away with love to someone who may have better use for it.

You may have to work through some of the old patterns of the mind. These may be your feelings of guilt, feeling of being disloyal to the person who gave it to you, or fear of 'what if they found out it was recycled' -- which is shame, feeling the need to reciprocate and so on. Watch as these sentiments come up. These are where your real resistance comes from. Let them go one by one.

You do not owe it to anyone to keep what they give you, or having to pay back. Choose to see it coming from unconditional love and refuse to surround it with conditionalities. It is yours to do what you please. Give yourself the freedom.

The other thing is don't hint. Either say it lovingly and trust they understand, or don't say anything at all if you think they may be hurt.

Remember, giving and receiving are two sides of the same coin. Know that if we cannot receive with grace and unconditionality, we probably are unable to give unconditionally too. A friend of mine suggests that we stop being 'stingy' receivers.
