o Resentment, criticism, fear and guilt are the most damaging patterns.
o Self- approval and self -acceptance in the now are the keys to positive changes.
o Life is never stuck or static or stale, for each moment is ever new and fresh. I am one with the very power that has created me and this power has given me the power to create my own circumstances.
o Every moment of life is a new beginning point as we move from the old.
o What we think about ourselves becomes truth for us.
o No person, no place and no thing has any power over us, for we are the only thinkers in it.
o When we create peace and harmony and balance in our minds, we will find it in our lives.
o The more self-hatred and guilt we have, the less our lives work. The less self-hatred and guilt we have, the better our lives work, on all levels.
o Whatever is happening “out their” is only a mirror of our own inner thinking… it is our beliefs which attract people who will treat us that way.
o Resentment that is long held can eat away at the body and become the disease we call cancer.
o Criticism as a permanent habit can often lead to arthritis in the body.
o Guilt always looks for punishment and punishment creates pain.
o Fear and the tension it produces can create things like baldness, ulcers and even sore foot.
o To release the past we must forgive everyone, including ourselves. “I forgive you for not being the way I wanted you to be. I forgive you and I set you free.”
o Forgiveness means giving up, letting go. It has nothing to do with condoning behaviour. It is just letting the whole thing go.
o “When people come to me with a problem, I don’t care what it is – poor health, lack of money, unfulfilling relationships or stifled creativity – there is only one thing I ever work on , and that is LOVING THE SELF”
o In the infinity of life where I am, all is perfect, whole and complete…
o We are doing the best we can with the understanding, awareness and knowledge we have.
o There is no written law that says that because once you believed something, you have to continue to believe it forever…
o Do not blame; People who did all those terrible things to us were just as frightened and scared as you are.
o We are here to transcend our early limitations, whatever they were. We are here to recognise our own magnificence and divinity no matter what they told us.
o I see the past as necessary to bring me to where I am today. I am willing to begin where I am right now to clean the rooms of my mental house… I am willing to set myself free.
o Whatever the problem is, it comes from a thought pattern and thought patterns can be changed.
o If we want a joyous life, we must think joyous thoughts. If we want a prosperous life, we must think prosperous thoughts. If we want loving life, we must think loving thoughts. Whatever we send out mentally or verbally will come back to us in like form.
o If you choose thoughts that will create problems and pain that’s rather foolish. It’s like choosing food that always makes you ill.
o Impatience is only another form of resistance. It is resistance to learning and changing. When we demand that it be done right now, completed at once; then we don’t give ourselves time to learn the lesson involved with the problem we have created.
o I love myself; therefore, I live totally in the now, experiencing each moment as good and knowing that my future is bright and knowing that my future is bright and joyous and secure…
Note; Complimentary Therapy (like Spiritual\Pranic\esoteric Healing) is not intended to replace (orthodox) professional medical treatment and care medicine but rather to complement it.
o … Many people come to believe, that their lives are only a compilation of psychological wounds that they feel they can do little to heal…
o … whether we are healed or are in the process of healing, we will always need loving friends and family; a community based not just on wounds or neediness but also on shared interests and emotional nurturing...
o … pain is also a teacher, pointing to an area that is begging for repair.
o Forgiveness frees up the energy for necessary healing. Part of the problem with the victim mentality is that it overlooks the ways in which we ourselves perpetuate what was done to us.
o …disease (and this is a platitude) is caused by lack of harmony—a disharmony to be found existing between the form aspect and the life.
o …We live in a world of energies and are a constituent part of them ourselves. The physical vehicle is a fusion of two energies and seven forces…The fight between the forces produces all disease, all ills and bodily pain, which seek release in death.
o The tendency to criticism, to violent dislikes, and to hatreds based on criticism or a superiority complex, produces much of the acidity from which the majority of people suffer.
o … arthritis falls into the category of diseases which is largely based upon the satisfaction of physical desire. Cancer and diabetes are diseases which are connected with inner emotional desires and the violent suppressed wish-life …
o Fever is simply indication of trouble and is a basic way of purification and of elimination. It is an indicator and not a disease in itself.
Prana (प्राण, prāṇa) is the Sanskrit word for "life force"; The universal principle of energy or force, responsible for the body's life, heat and maintenance, ‘prana’ is the sum total of all energy that is manifest in the universe.(wiki)
o "…relaxing the mind helps the body heal itself…focusing on the pain and trying to remove it makes healing difficult. But ignoring the pain and diverting attention to something pleasant speeds up the rate of healing."
o …the movement and quality of circulation, rhythm, and purity of ‘prana’ is what determines the quality of our health, even our emotional states and modes of thinking.
o Man also forgets that matter is nothing else but condensed energy in continuous transformation. He wastes vital energy to feed his senses with a variety of stimulations, born out of an unending chain of material desires. The more he dwells on matter, the more he needs 'fleshly nutrition to keep himself alive, and the more he burns out oxygen, the less he feels the pranic forces within himself. This situation makes him sink into matter, and with less prana, he becomes depleted.( Dr. Steven Brena)
o Anger and intense worry devitalize the whole bioplasmic body so that the body becomes susceptible to all kinds of diseases. Negative emotions cause disturbances in the bioplasmic body so that the whole physical body becomes sick…
o If the ailment is of emotional origin…pranic healing will not produce a permanent cure unless there is a corresponding emotional change…The root cause of the disease must be removed so that permanent healing can take place.
o …The mind can intentionally or unintentionally influence the pattern of the bioplasmic body...
o …a person harbouring intense anger and frustration may cause severe pranic congestion around the solar plexus chakra, and heart chakra in the long run. Even if this person were to watch his or her diet, he or she would still end up with a heart problem like heart enlargement…
o What we call miraculous healing is nothing more than increasing the body’s rate of self-recovery.
o A definition of (spiritual) healing; ‘A treatment that involves the transfer of energy through the healer to the recipient. It promotes self-healing by relaxing the body, releasing tensions and strengthening the body’s own immune system. Healing is natural and non-invasive with the intention of bringing the recipient into a state of balance and wellbeing on all levels’ (NFSH Healing Trust)
o ‘The fundamental, underlying philosophy of spiritual healing centres on the notion of the connectedness of all at an ‘energetic’ level, which is now supported by quantum physics. It is considered that healing, through the input of thought at an energetic level, can influence the harmony of the mind, body and spirit. (Jack Angelo)
o The Esoteric Taoist approach does not depend on total absence of the flux of thought. Instead, this system stresses the circulation of energy called “chi” along certain pathways inside the body. These pathways help direct the “chi” — also known as prana, sperm or ovarian power, the warm current, or kundalini power — to successively higher power centers (chakras) of the body.
o The chi is the primordial life force itself… “Chi” is the continuous flow of energy linking the various tissues, organs and brain functions into a unified whole — a person. Chi also links this person to his environment.
o “Opening the routes” means clearing all obstructions that impede the flow of chi energy in their natural paths. Most obstructions take the form of physical, mental, or emotional tension.
o The key to Chi circulation is deep relaxation: in order to circulate the warm current you must be calm within yourself…
o Mental Attitude; Maintain a calm mind and an attitude of forgiveness. Be cheerful and remain open to life. Don’t be consumed with ambition or worry. Your great task is to raise your consciousness and your capacity to love. Don’t worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will take care of itself. Happiness and a calm state are signs of spiritual progress…
o In ancient China, the Taoists taught that a constant inner smile, a smile to oneself, insured health, happiness, and longevity. Why? Smiling to yourself is like basking in love: you become your own best friend. Living with an inner smile is to live in harmony with yourself…
o It is important not to think of yourself as sick or weak. You can be free of an ailment no matter how long you may have had it. Very often the difference depends on your attitude. The psychosomatic origin of illness is widely known. If you have confidence in this method, your psychosomatic ailments will be banished. In effect, you will be overcoming your hidden desire for illness that first made you ill.…
o Tension Myositis Syndrome (TMS). (Myo means muscle”; Tension Myositis Syndrome is defined here as a change of state in the muscle that is painful.) The primary tissue involved was muscle, specifically the muscles of the neck, shoulders, back and buttocks. But even more important was the observation that 88 percent of the people seen had histories of such things as tension or migraine headache, heartburn, hiatus hernia, stomach ulcer, colitis, spastic colon, irritable bowel syndrome, hay fever, asthma, eczema and a variety of other disorders, all of which were strongly suspected of being related to tension. It seemed logical to conclude that their painful muscle condition might also be induced by tension.
o The idea that pain means injury or damage is deeply ingrained in the consciousness. The majority of these pain syndromes are the result of a condition in the muscles, nerves, tendons and ligaments brought on by tension… The symptoms of pain, numbness, tingling and weakness are intended by the brain to suggest that something is physically wrong. To most people, practitioners and laymen alike, “physically wrong means injury, weakness, incompetence and degeneration, singly or in combination.
o In view of the different degrees of severity of the physical incidents and the great variation in when the pain begins after the incident, the conclusion is that the physical happening was not the cause of the pain but was merely a trigger.
o It is not the occasion itself but the degree of anxiety or anger which it generates that determines if there will be a physical reaction. The important thing is the emotion generated and repressed, for we have a built-in tendency to repress unpleasant, painful or embarrassing emotions. These repressed feelings are the stimulus for TMS and other disorders like it…
o Case study: There comes to mind the case of a man who had found himself financially well-off enough to retire from business at an early age and who shortly thereafter developed the pain syndrome for which I saw him. As we talked it became apparent that since his retirement he had become preoccupied with a number of family problems, there had been a number of deaths in the family, he was worried about the health of the business he had left (in the hands of relatives), and he had begun to wonder what his life was all about now that he was retired and was thinking about aging and mortality for the first time. His concern about these matters, considered consciously and unconsciously, had produced sufficient anxiety (and anger) to precipitate the TMS. Conventional medicine had attributed his pain to an aging spine, and treatment for that had, naturally, failed. He had TMS; his troubles were not in his spine they were in his life.
o Awareness is the key to recovery from TMS.
o …Repressed emotions like anxiety and anger set in motion a process in which the autonomic nervous system causes a reduction in blood flow to certain muscles, nerves, tendons or ligaments (This state is known as ischemia), resulting in pain and other kinds of dysfunction in these tissues. The autonomic nervous system is a subsystem of the brain that has the responsibility for controlling all of the body’s involuntary functions.
o …the role of the pain syndrome was not to express the hidden emotions but to prevent them from becoming conscious. In other words, the pain of TMS (or the discomfort of a peptic ulcer, of colitis, of tension headache, or the terror of an asthmatic attack) is created in order to distract the attention of the sufferer from what is going on in the emotional sphere. (Dr. Stanley Coen)
o …the need is to deflect the person’s attention away from those very unpleasant, often painful emotions that the mind is trying to keep repressed. It is as though the mind had decided that a physical pain is preferable to an emotional one. When viewed in this light the process is not so illogical.
o …Pain is a symptom, like fever. It has been elevated to the status of a separate disorder on the hypothesis that certain psychological factors cause the patient to exaggerate the pain…Pain is, has been and always will be a symptom. If it becomes severe and chronic it is because that which is causing it is severe and has gone unrecognized…
Close your eyes and see yourself walking down a lonely stretch of desert road that seems to go on forever. Feel the sun beating down, the hot sand beneath your feet, an overpowering thirst and fatigue. Let yourself experience both the aridity of the place and your own loneliness and desperation.
Then find an outcropping of rock beside the road and settle down for the night. Watch the sun set, and feel the cool night air. Now leave the rock formation and look around. In the distance you see twinkling lights, and you begin to hear the soft strains of music. You realize there is a city filled with people quite close by. You believed you were in the middle of a barren desert, but you were really only a mile from the city. Let the realization sink in that relief is near at hand and you have only a short way to walk. As you relax in that knowledge, say a brief prayer of thanksgiving. (Caroline Myss)
