“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.” – – Albert Einstein
The first time I attempted to honestly describe my “working” relationship with – universal energy – I subtly fell into the very mode which I personally characterize as distracting and not representing my truth. I chose to label my working relationship with universal energy giving it the name – DEAL – “declared ego-absent intuitive energetic linking.” From the outset I was never comfortable with this “naming” business as it runs counter to my personal belief that universal energy just is. So, I need to recant the name DEAL and state that for me – universal energy – is neutral our individual intention give it attributes of bad or good, negative or positive, wrong or right, gloomy or bright.
Universal energy is malleable forming into whatever our intention wills. Universal energy always answers as the proverbial genie in Aladdin’s Lamp fable responding to you … “your wish is my command” … In the absence of any immediate overt response from you, universal energy will default to that energy form which is most prevalent in your in thoughts.
For me, universal energy always was, always will be, and is everlasting, free, intact, pure, unblemished, unspoiled and ready and complete for everyone’s immediate use. Universal energy being neutral asks nothing of us – save – acknowledging, utilizing and directing the incredible and indelible power of our intentions.
In our contemporary world, we appear to have a need to place a label on everything, often to appease our ego. So it was with me and my need to affix a name – DEAL – to the universal energy which I discovered I could interact and work with. Those working with universal energy have ascribed to their modality, protocol and techniques stylistic names like: Dharma, Therapeutic Touch, Rikki, Yuen Method,™ Reconnection, Prana, Ruah, Chi, Laying-on-of-hands, Biofield, Distance or Remote healing, Chakra healing, Qigong, The Polarity Process, Dahn Yoga, Fire Breath, The Toa of Natural Breathing, Aromatherapy, Bowen Technique Thought Field Therapy, Zensight, EMF Balancing Technique, Chios Healing, EFT (emotional freedom technique), Primus Activation Technique, Astro-Energetic Healing as well as a host of other labels.
In the final analysis, universal energy, just is, “we” – that’s you and me – do not create it, nor can we destroy it. It abounds around us unlimitedly. And being a “construction” of energy, humankind, resonates with and to universal energy.
The 2004 initial release of the movie … What the Bleep do We Know … was for many an eye- opener into a world creatively hidden from view of most. For many this was an abrupt introduction to the science of “quantum physics.” The concept of “intention” was fostered in this movie raising a level of awareness to its incredible power. It is most likely not too far a stretch to speculate that for many this overture was a bewildering experience.
The release in July 2005 of the DVD … The Secret … has given rise to an increased awareness of the power of our individual intentions and how our individual intentions affect and impact everything which manifests in our life. In essence, each of us – creates – their own reality.
Energy is often defined as: “the ability to do work.” Energy is essentially indescribable, formless, free flowing; infinite, endless, immeasurable, amorphous, unstructured though energy appears to follow certain definable parameters.
“All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree.” – Albert Einstein – – Energy is the key element of Einstein’s great equation of E = MC2. Solving for – “E” – has been the pursuit of many scholars for generations and remains so even today. Energy might also be likened to “the force” popularized by George Lucas in Star Wars wherein in one of the memorable lines was … “May the Force be with you.” But what exactly is it? In the words of the character Obi-wan Kenobi, a Jedi knight: “The Force is what gives the Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.”
Dr. William Tiller notes that a new science is arising; a science of the human mind much broader than psychology has been to date. Dr. William Tiller, PhD., is the founding director of Academy of Parapsychology and Medicine and The Institute of Noetic Sciences at Stanford University. See … http://www.tillerfoundation.com/ … Dr. Tiller calls it “noetic” science, after the Greek word for – intuitive knowing. Intuitive knowing … “If you think of intersecting circles, holy wisdom ( intuitive knowing) is that point at which the realities meet, overlap, intersect, interpenetrate”… – Rowan D. Williams.
I came upon an understanding of universal energy and my intuitive capability to “work” with it through an evolutionary process. As a young boy I was steeped in the Catholic religion, though my adherence and belief took a vastly different and meandering path long ago. For me, one of the foundational principles of the Catholic religion as well as many other religions is the prerequisite there needs to be an intermediary between me and universal power/energy. This never quite fitted into my personal understanding of how universal energy/power operates.
Arriving at an understanding that I control my life and how my life manifests is solely an inside job was an achievement not without overcoming the many obstacles I had chosen to place in my path. Among the clutter obstructing my path none was more prominent than those where I voluntarily granted to others and to things – power – over me. By this voluntary intention I granted to others and to things control over how my life was to manifest. Difficult it is to see, to own, to be aware that which I was attracting into my life was precisely what in most respects I did not want. Far easier it was to point my finger at others and things, forgetting in the process four of my fingers were pointing back at me.
The power of universal energy was presented to me by the honesty in my “whisper” voice when my intention of thought brought a smile to face of a stranger, or subtle recognition on the face of another that I had gifted them with a pleasant thought or as a result of a simple embrace another human being felt in that moment “gotten.” Though incredibly simple these initial acts helped me build an awareness of the power of my intention and I understood there was a universal energy at work.
I have subsequently learned when permission is freely and honorably granted by an individual to permit yet another to interact with their energy all participants benefit sometimes with seemingly miraculous results. What I have learned is when an individual freely and honorably intents to permit their energy to flow, the universe permits me to move that energy in a manner which is to that individual’s highest and best use. I have come to learn my responsibility in this scenario is to the degree and extent I am capable to remove my ego allowing the universal energy to use me merely as a conduit, devoid on any attachment to the outcome. Is this a form of energetic healing…? I leave you to solely determine that for yourself.
Often when speaking about the topic of “energetic healing” the concept of “aura” enters the conversation. Aura is a Latin word often described as …”A light or radiance claimed to emanate from the body and to be visible to certain individuals with psychic or spiritual powers” … Aura is an energy field that surrounds and penetrates the body. This field has been officially recognized and measured in clinical laboratories.
Many forms of energetic healing work within an individual’s “aura” field and seek to manipulate or interact with one’s energy often pursuant to stipulated protocols. As I see it, once permission is freely given and freely received the universe as the “place-holder” of all energy grants “energy” to flow, bend, sway, radiate, project between the two individuals as directed solely by the universe. Permission honorably granted and received allows “energy” in whatever form it chooses to manifest to be transmuted between the individuals.
In the absence of ego a type of holistic symbiotic relationship is formed in the moment and sustained for the time duration of the participants choosing. “Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts” – Albert Einstein. What “manifests” in the space between the individuals and the universe is unseen to the naked eye of most, occurring at times without any overt feeling or sensory sensation on either party’s part, though often both participants can feel energy flowing between them, surrounding them, moving often playfully between them, performing a dance known only to the energy itself, the practioneers/facilitators being merely the attaching “string” between the other participant and the source of universal energy. “As a man is, so he sees. As the eye is formed, such are its powers.” – – William Blake
In my judgment, practicing any form of energetic healing requires only the honest willingness to let go of one’s ego and to let go of any attachment to a particular outcome and trust the unseen hand of the universe will direct the interaction between the participants, with the practioneers/facilitators acting merely as the conduit or string linking the participant to the source of universal energy.
Perhaps it is unfair on my part, but I tend to believe one does not choose to engage in any form of energy healing unless they feel a personal link to the “intuitive” aspect of life-force. I believe all energetic healing to one degree or another is in whole or in part – intuitive.
Our creator grants us “free-will” and we need to exercise that free-will and ask questions of all practioneers/facilitators of any form of healing art to determine “we” can attain an honorable linking at an energetic level. There is in the moment established a very intimate trust which needs to be honored and is entitled to be held in moral high ground.
I have discovered as I engage in energetic work “grounding” between participants is important and will usually flow effortlessly from whatever conversation occurs. I choose in some cases to invoke a formal intentional grounding and in the ensuing silence allow the universe to initiate contact between the participants. The tetrahedron formed between the facilitator, participant and the universe rests upon a base prepared as a result of the free voluntary consent granted in the space and in the moment. I also have found, I have need to declare “sacred space” performing a ritual personal to me, creating a shield around the area to eliminate extraneous debilitating energy.
This is what I do. You may be aware in a purely shamanic tradition proof is in the outcome of his work. While it may seem odd, whenever I am granted the opportunity to be a part an energetic healing I recall words spoken by Yoda in Star Wars … “try not, do, or do not, there is no try” …
“The most beautiful and profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the power of all true science” …. Albert Einstein
