Last month I wrote that when you are trying to create a change in the outer world first you must work from an energetic place. You cannot change matter while you are in your egoic form.
This is a very important point that I would like us to explore this month.
Shamans and spiritual healers look through the eyes of spirit into a client’s body reading the field of energy. Shamans heal what is out of balance on a spiritual level. The illness might manifest on an emotional or physical level, but the shaman is looking behind the manifestation of symptoms. A shaman looks at the energy system of a client and restores harmony on a spiritual level. Once harmony is restored in the invisible energetic system the client’s body and emotions can heal.
In the modern Western world we tend to try and cure symptoms. We often ignore looking at the core energetic system and how that needs to be restored to a state of balance so that the entire life force of a person can flow again bringing a state of well being.
In my books Medicine for the Earth, How to Heal Toxic Thoughts, and How to Thrive in Changing Times I teach the importance of being able to transmute and transform the energy behind our thoughts. I also teach that when we use words we create as we speak and we must be aware of the energy behind our words. For we manifest with our words.
We have been working together on this work for years now as I have focused on this since I started writing the Transmutation News in 2000.
But we must take the work of transmuting and transforming the energy behind our thoughts and words further. For what is behind form and matter is energy.
To truly create positive healing for others, the planet, and ourselves we must stop focusing on symptoms. We must look through the eyes of spirit to see the movement of energy and any blocks that might be noticed in the web of life.
The image I keep seeing is a web and matrix of tiny crystalline lights that are in all of life. And sometimes an attunement of this web must be made so that the energetic flow can be freed. Once this flow is free health is restored on all levels.
When I teach my work on “Medicine for the Earth and Healing with Spiritual Light” I ask people not to focus on a client’s physical and/or emotional complaint.
This is often confusing for people, especially people who work with me through some of my ongoing on line courses.
People feel that if they can hear other peoples’ complaints and stories that it will create a state of compassion and more energy to want to participate in the healing work.
But when two or more people actually agree on an energy we actually end up solidifying the problem. If one person states that they are ill on an emotional or physical level and we as an outside force feed that belief we have exponentially solidified the symptoms stated.
I know this gets tricky if you are in a helping profession. For clients show up with a problem that must be stated and diagnosed. But as helping professionals we do not have to feed the energy stated. We can let the client share what is happening and through the process of simply being an observer we end up changing the issue stated. I wrote about the power of observation and how this simple practice can heal in my book Medicine for the Earth.
I want to encourage all of us to look behind the symptoms that you are manifesting, you might see in others, and on the planet. Go into a meditative state and look through the eyes of spirit and start to work on the energetic matrix.
As we even look beyond the energetic matrix we observe only divine light. As we recognize the light in ourselves, others, and the planet transformation naturally takes place. For light is life and light heals all illness. And of course as we observe the light in all of life we must allow universal love to flow through us. All life is light and we came here to experience the love of the divine.
I think part of the collective trance keeps us only looking at chasing symptoms. We are looking on the wrong level to really create lasting healing. I know many of us have seen the potential of energy medicine and have glimpsed into the future of its power to heal. Why not start now?
Recently I was searching around some of my past Transmutation News to find some material that might be relevant for an article I am writing for the Huffington Post. I read some of what I wrote in the May 2010 Transmutation News and thought it was relevant to what I have written in this month’s column. I thought I would share some of our past work to add to what I have already written.
From: The May 2010 Transmutation News:
One of the core teachings of the Medicine for the Earth work is that everything manifests in the spiritual before manifesting in the physical.
About 5 years ago I wrote that the fabric of reality is breaking down. Floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes are creating an unweaving of the fabric of life. Organizational structures are falling apart and there is a great deal of disillusionment in government and religious organizations.
We are continuing to experience major earth changes as with the recent earthquakes in different parts of the world and the eruption of the volcano in Iceland.
True shamans work on creating the new fabric of reality and continue to work on the web of life. Looking at patterns of disharmony they use art, song, dance, and dreaming to change the frequency of the patterns of the entire web.
With the work we have been doing together we are changing the collective fabric which requires changing our thoughts and daydreams as we work to create a new fabric of reality in the invisible realms which will manifest into the physical world to replace all that is unraveling. In this way we build an invisible world of substance that manifests as a new physical reality.
There are many of us who only want to look at making external changes. There are of course actions we can take to change what is happening on the planet. With some actions and healing work it is like going around and just treating symptoms without looking at the deeper level of the challenge and the illness.
When we use our thoughts, words, and daydreams to build an invisible world of substance we go to the core of reweaving a new fabric reality.
If there are not people who are willing to be the dreamers than what will our future be? And as the necessary and evolutionary breakdowns keep occurring what is the vision for the future? There must be a collective holding a new vision.
It is essential for those of us who are called to dream and reweave a new fabric of reality to keep working on building an invisible world of substance. And I wrote about the creation methods I use in both Medicine for the Earth and in my new book How to Thrive in Changing Times.
I do believe that it is important to take some time to reflect on the invisible world of substance you have been building.
The full moon is June 4. Let us together focus on the powerful work that is taught in spiritual traditions – the world of form is preceded by energy.
Let us work with reweaving an invisible world of substance by focusing on weaving a strong and brilliant web of light.
For those of you new to the Transmutation News please read “Creating A Human Web of Light” on the homepage for instructions for our monthly ceremony.
On June 20 we celebrate the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the winter solstice in the Southern Hemisphere.
What a great time to merge with the earth where you live. When you merge with the earth you learn about it by becoming it. In this way you can experience in your body what changes are happening in your own inner earth.
For instructions on how to merge with an element you can look at Medicine for the Earth or How to Thrive in Changing Times.
Basically you want to do a meditation to become earth. Focus your intention on merging with the earth where you live. Put on some music and allow yourself to sink into a merged state with earth. To deepen your experience you can merge with all the elements where you live and learn about the changes that come with the changing season. As we are earth, air, water, and fire ourselves we change with the seasons too.
As you merge with the elements notice that they are always in movement. Even frozen earth is always moving. Movement is needed for health. Illness manifests when there is stagnant energy. This means that our energy must keep moving to maintain a state of health.
Let us together give thanks and gratitude to the elements for all that we are given so that we might thrive and not just survive. And most of all let us join our hearts together and give thanks for our life. Let us feed the spirit that lives in all things (all of life on earth) with universal love!
On the solstice eat a fresh piece of fruit or a vegetable that is grown organically without pesticides. Whether you live in the city or in the country there are markets that sell fresh organically grown local produce.
As you eat the bounty that comes from the earth imagine yourself sinking into the earth and feel the love and light of all that the earth gifts us with.
I wish you a joyous summer or winter!
Months ago I announced that my visionary fiction A Fall to Grace is now available in electronic form. When I originally started writing this monthly column in 1998 we used this book as a workbook. And then in 2000 the column changed to “The Transmutation News” where we began focusing on the Medicine for the Earth work.
A Fall to Grace is filled with some really powerful teachings. If you would like to read this wonderful little book the best place to order it from is Smashwords. You can go to www.Smashwords.com and do a search for A Fall to Grace. There will be a few different options for formats to download the book into.
The ebook version of A Fall to Grace is also available now on I Books. I am hoping it will be available on Kindle and the Nook soon. But it is not available on Amazon or Barnes and Noble at this time.
Check out the website www.dergoldenefaden.info The project “the golden thread” invites you to pause once a day for three minutes for One World, our living space.
The work is similar to the work we are doing with Creating A Human Web of Light.
A workshop taught by Stuart Dole and Anne Hatfield
Environmental Healing through Spiritual Transformation
Join us for this class in personal and environmental healing and discover how changing ourselves within effects the environment around us!
We will be using proven, effective spiritual practices and ceremonies to restore balance within and without, healing the environment and ourselves.
You will learn to transmute the toxins within yourself and experience your own divinity as you simply allow that divinity to radiate out around you.
(This is based on Sandra Ingerman's ground-breaking work, Medicine for the Earth.)
You will also meet nature spirits and spirits of place, and practice nature awareness skills, creating a deeper connection with nature and the land.
And the most exciting part -- we will work both in a classroom setting and outdoors at a site in Sonoma County in need of environmental remediation. We will measure and track some aspect of the environmental quality at the site before and after our work there, in order to see quantitative results!
If you're intrigued with the idea of spiritual activism and would like to put your connection with the spirits to work for the environment in a concrete, measurable way, please do join us for this class!
Starts June 23-24. Meets one weekend a month for five months. (June 23-24, July 28-29, Aug. 25-26, Sept 22-23, and Oct. 13 & 17)
Cost: $725 for all five months, payable as $145 per month.
Location: Santa Rosa, CA
