It’s day fourteen of sheltering at home. By the time you read this, it will be well past thirty days. Like most who are following health and safety directives, I find myself working from home and diverting my attention to the nagging tasks that I’ve ignored from time to time, such as dusting under the bed and wiping down the windowsills. Suddenly, the value of a disinfecting wipe has become priceless to me. As a Pranic healer, I am called into service. Yet, how? Life has become an enigma. Today, we have a new normal with social distancing and social isolation and, with these in place, technology has a greater role in connecting us.
We are faced with a new normal, knowing that this will evolve into yet another new normal. What is the inner reflection on this? Personally, I have realized that “living in the present” is most important. “Awareness” of my actions in this pandemic is a key to overcoming the underlying fear I see in others’ reactions. I’ve seen people turn away from a distant smile as if the smile itself was the dangerous contagion. What if I change my view to preserving life by embracing the energy of life more – the prana – the lifeforce – and help to cultivate it through my own actions?
Then there’s inner reflection. It takes us to so very many places in our minds. It’s that personal assessment that brings us into emotional awareness and, ultimately, it becomes another tool for self-care. What am I missing from day to day… loving kindness, mercy, compassion, non-judgement, commitment to my own principles…? Ouch.
Reflection is a mirror. We can look at ourselves and we can see our reflection in others. So, here are the simple ways that I can be of service to others by helping myself.
Om Mani Padme Hum… it’s a chant that vibrates with mercy and compassion. This is for all of us. It’s for the sick and for the healthy. Reflecting more… as a human being, it is my responsibility to support humanity lovingly. As a healer, I can vibrate with loving kindness. According to the teachings of Grandmaster Choa Kok Sui, “everyone has the innate ability to heal and relieve pain.” These are words to remember and embrace. Om Mani Padme Hum can ease the heaviness in our world.
I’m finding stillness in my day. Many find their way through prayer. As a Pranic healer, I practice meditation, especially Mediation on Twin Hearts. This is a powerful meditation gifted to us by Grandmaster Choa Kok Sui. It activates the heart and crown centers of our energetic bodies and draws down divine energy that cleanses and energizes us. In this meditation, we give back to the world of sentient beings, those we love and friend, and to the planet with blessings. Note to self: Always give your gratitude. Remember…when you give, you receive and when you receive, you give.
The Great Invocation sits before me. This is another powerful prayer or meditation. Eleanor Roosevelt broadcast The Great Invocation over the radio waves in 1952 on World Invocation Day at the United Nations. It was a two-minute broadcast that spoke about the “spiritual bomb” to end discouragement in the world. It ends with “Let Light and Love and Power restore the plan on Earth.” There is strength and truth in the Great Invocation. Upon reflection, this meditation asks us to shine our lights in goodness and good will. We are all lightworkers in our own ways.
Energetic hygiene is more important now. We can scrub our hands and cover our faces to avoid contaminants. Energetically, we can still be dirty. We collect negativity in our energy bodies before it manifests as harmful disturbances in our physical, mental, and emotional bodies. Aside from regular salt and lavender baths and meditations, I make it a point to stretch, get more exercise, smile, and remember to breathe.
So, I will continue to breathe. Remind yourself to breathe as well. Be aware. Meditate. Shine your lights with loving-kindness. There are no excuses for a disconnect. Technology has surfaced as a blessing that offers us resources. This is a journey that brings us to a new normal of our own creation. Namaste…with a smile.
