Energy Healing Then And Now


The following is an answer to a question on healing modalities today, and what more I have discovered along the way.Jesus-Good-Shepherd-03[1]

I have continued the never ending quest of discovering how healing energy works, and why. My experience has cost me thousands of dollars over 15 years. I received me level 1 Reiki training in 1999, and it took off from there. I share some of the same thoughts many have expressed; there must be more. Here is what I discovered in my intensive and costly education. I share these “pearls of wisdom” with everyone in the hopes of saving you money and time. Yes, there is more. Please realize too that this is my opinion I am sharing, based on my experience.

At the end of all the energy classes that it is humanly possible for one to take, I still came to the same conclusion: there must be more. It was only then that I turned my attention back to an old and familiar journey of faith. All energy healing connects to the Source of the healing energy, God, the Creator of energy and everything else. This helped me answer many questions like, why can’t we raise people from the dead? Why can’t we instantly heal major illness like in the day of Jesus? Was Jesus just a prophet like energy circles like to reduce him to, or was he actually the Son of God?

I do believe in connecting with Source, as long as what we are calling “Source” is specifically God, the Creator of everything. Why do I specify who this God is? My studies took me to a place I did not expect. No one has more healing stories to tell than Jesus, so I went back to the Bible to investigate how healing works, since I had exhausted all other earthly courses and programs on this subject. I knew there had to be more.

If a healing style suggests we connect with “Source,” without specifying that this “Source,” is God, then I back away, because there are other energies out there who mimmick white light. Lucifer’s name means bright, white light. Satan was one of the most beautiful angels God ever created, and through his own and our pride, uses every situation possible to pull us away from the author of all healing, God. I think playing on our egos and the art of energy healing is one way that happens. Otherwise, why don’t all people truly get healed in our sessions, and why don’t they stay healed?

Our human egos often get in the way here, at least mine did. When I realized I got to the end of all healing modalities, and still I had unanswered questions, I went back to Jesus’ healings in the Bible. I found out that, yes, Jesus did heal people, but that was a secondary action. Healing came after, not before his primary mission of aligning people back to God and announcing the coming of the Kingdom of God. Jesus showed compassion and pitied the people, because they seemed to be like sheep without a shepherd. I think this is much like us today, following anyone who is teaching all the healing modalities, leading us astray from the real healing of the soul, mind and body.

I have yet to meet a person who has never died, and after all this time of all these expensive courses, I have yet to meet a person who can bring a person back from death, or who can heal simply by having the hemmoraging person touch the hem of our garments, all the while we feel that healing energy departs from us at that exact point.

Healing by Jesus was a side effect of learning about and accepting his teaching about the coming Kingdom of God. Please stay with me here. In the stories of creation, Jesus was created by God first, before anything else. All else was created by God and Jesus working together, which is why Genesis says, “we created everything in OUR image.” Jesus is a perfect creation of the Father. When man was first created, Adam was created perfect, but with free will. Adam sins by using free will to give into temptation and fall into sin by following Satan over God. It took God’s only other perfect creation, Jesus, to align us back to the Father, and bring healing back.

“Then he (Jesus) went around through the whole of Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the good news of the kingdom and curing every sort of disease and every sort of infirmity among the people.” Matthew 4:23

However, the healings came to an end in Jesus and the apostles time, at least dramatic healings such as rising from the dead and curing major illnesses. Check this out:

“Love never fails. But whether these are gifts of prophesying, they will be done away with; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will be done away with. For we have partial knowledge and we prophesy partially; but when that which is complete arrives, that which is partial will be done away with. … Now however there remain faith, hope, love, these three, but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13: 8-10, 13

So here I come full circle, yet with profound understanding, that this healing work we do is partial, not complete. I now believe that all healing will become complete in God’s Kingdom to come, as Jesus taught us in what we now know as the Lord’s Prayer, “Thy Kingdom come, on earth as it is in heaven.”

“Keep on seeking first the kingdom and his righteousness, and all these other things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33

When I started out on my quest for healing, I honestly did not think it would bring me to this conclusion. My pride and ego wanted more. But this is what I came to. God bless you on your continues search.

Is Energy Healing Un-Christian? By Whose Power Are You Healing? Are You Connecting To “Source?”


"You will receive power when the holy spirit arrives upon you, and you will be witnesses of me ... to the most distant part of the earth."

“You will receive power when the holy spirit arrives upon you, and you will be witnesses of me … to the most distant part of the earth.”

Is energy healing un-Christian? One definition of healing is, “Causing a person who has been physically, mentally or spiritually sick to gain good health. Some of the pre-Christian Hebrew prophets as well as Jesus Christ and certain members of the early Christian congregation were enabled by God’s spirit to perform miraculous healing.”

Whose power, under whose name, are we working these days, as we do energy healing? Under whose name is your energy practitioner connecting to when doing your energy healing appointment? Do you hear the prayer your energy practitioner is using before they lay their hands on you? The reason I ask, is that there are many different “Sources” of energy. Are you aware that even Satan can mimic the “Light” and “miracles?” In the Old Testament, “Moses and Aaron appeared before Pharaoh of Egypt to request that Israel be allowed to go into the wilderness to offer sacrifices to God. As evidence of divine backing, Moses directed Aaron to throw down his rod. The rod became a big snake. That miracle was done by God’s power. But then the magic-practicing priests of Egypt threw down their rods and these, too, became big snakes (Exodus 7:8-12). By whose power did they perform their miracles?*” Let’s look deeper.

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 says, “There should not be found in you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, anyone who employs divination, a practice of magic or anyone who looks for omens or a sorcerer, or one who binds others with a spell, or anyone who consults a spirit medium or professional fortune-teller of events or anyone who inquires of the dead. For everybody doing these things is something detestable to God, and on account of these detestable things, God is driving them away from before you.”

I do not know about you, but I know first hand how easy it is to be caught up in these same things, presented today in fun and attractive trappings, with an allure to the ego, that this is the New Age healing way to go. But more important than preserving egos and images, it is more important, even critical, to get straight what God is truly asking of you and me.

“In the 20th century some faith healing is performed in services conducted by the clergy of Christendom. Among non-Christian religions there are voodoo priests, witch doctors, medicine men, and others who also do healing; they often employ magic and divination. Some “psychic healers” say that their cures have nothing to do with religion. In all these instances, does the healing power come from the true God?*” God would not have us work with the energy he says to avoid. Again let us look to the Bible for what we all should be on the lookout for.

Matthew 24:24 says, “False Christs and false prophets will arise and will give great signs (“miracles” according to the Good News Bible, Today’s English Version 1976) and wonders so as to mislead, if possible, even the chosen ones.”

And in Matthew 7:15-23: “Be on the watch for the false prophets … Many will say to me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many powerful works (“miracles” in the Jerusalem Bible, the New English Bible, Good News Bible) in your name?’ And yet then I will confess to them: I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness.”

Then there is the cost of services. Have you ever paid for an energy healing session? If you are an energy healer, have you ever charged for a healing session? What does the Bible say about that?

“Cure sick people, raise up dead persons, make lepers clean, expel demons. You received free, give free,” says Matthew 10:8. Are healers today doing that – giving free, as Jesus commanded?*

OK, now let us look at the rate of success: “All the crowd were seeking to touch him (Jesus), because power was going out of him and healing them all,” says Luke 6:19. “They brought the sick out even into the broad ways and laid them there upon little beds and cots, in order that, as Petert would go by, at least his shadow might fall upon some one of them. Also, the multitude from the cities around Jerusalem kept coming together, bearing sick people and those troubled with unclean spirits, and they would one and all be cured,” says Acts 5:15,16. In our day, do all who go to religious or energy practitioners or to religious shrines seeking a cure get healed?*

Acts 1:8 says: “You will receive power when the holy spirit arrives upon you, and you will be witnesses of me … to the most distant part of the earth.” Just before leaving his apostles to return to heaven, Jesus told them that this, not healing, was the vital work they were to do.*

Which Light Do You Work With? What Is the Source Of This Light?


angel helpAre you aware that Satan’s name Lucifer means “Light”? Massage therapists, Reiki practitioners of all levels, energy workers of all kinds, meditation practitioners every where draw on the energy of bright, white light. Isn’t all white light, White Light, and a protection? No. Have you ever been deceived? Have you ever thought a situation was one way in a particular light, then come to find out it is completely the opposite? Have you ever miss-read a person, place or thing? Things are not always what they seem. People often have agendas, and if you get caught up in other people’s agendas, then there can be manipulation pitfalls. How can we recognize one light from another Light? How can we recognize one Source of Light from another?

Lately I’ve gone back to the bible to see what it has to say. I find it very interesting that one day last month, I asked God about this very point. How do you know which way to turn? New Age gurus use white light. Jesus is referred to as the Light of the world. And then there is the deceiver, who uses light. Which light do you use? Do you know?

Isn’t this the New Age, the Age of Light? Yes, but be careful. Those of us who deal with energy work, know that there are a vast array of energies, and sources of light. It is not impossible for the dark energies to masquerade as light. In order not to be deceived, by yourself or anyone else, it is important to set your boundaries, to allow only the energies you want to work with in your space, or your home, or in your own mind. Ask for Jehovah God’s help. Did you know that God has a name? Some translations say God’s name is Yahweh, some say it is Jehovah. Call on God’s name. This is important.

If you call on “Source,” which source are you using? Do not leave the door open for any other source, other than Jehovah God, our creator. God told us exactly how to work with him, to keep his commandments, which Jesus simplified to two: Love God with all your heart, mind and soul; and the second, to love your neighbor as yourself. Ask Jesus directly and personally for help, to lead you, to protect you. Working directly with God, the Father/Mother of all life, through all time and space, you will be able to begin, or begin again, to have a very real and personal relationship.

Churches appear to have attendance declining. Our thirst for the real Divine Presence in our life is ever growing. In an effort to find our own spirituality in today’s world, we can leave ourselves open to what we thought was light, only to find out it was the mask of darkness instead. By going directly to God, through Jesus, you will find the answers. Ask, ask to be shown the way, and it will be shown to you.

Chi Of The Cosmos


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nchbA-JJqq8

Click on the link above to see a video of Hubble Telescope 20 to see the kaleidoscope of colors of Chi in the cosmos.

Energy is the pulse of the cosmos, the chi of all living things. We know this, but the implications of the reality of this fact goes beyond what our minds have allowed in thus far. We know

when we have high energy days compared to low energy days. We can see a project taking off with momentum, or falling apart. Health and illness follow patterns of energy, more or less. Everything in life sways with the radiation and life-giving force of energy, chi. Qigong practice elevates the mind to contemplate the vast sea of chi we live in daily, how we breathe, think and move. Chi follows thought, always. There is never a time that energy moves without an impetus. Some of this is self-generated, but much of this is external, outside of us. If we were to put colors on the various vibrations and flows of energy all around us, we would see a kaleidoscope of colors in the energy all around us. We get caught up in the important, day-to-day existence we all live, and rightly so. We are physical beings taking care of physical things. We are emotional beings taking care of our emotional well-being. We are spiritual beings taking care of our spirit and soulful selves. But we are also human beings living on a living, pulsating, vibrant Earth in a gravitational galaxy, in an energetic cosmos with vast and varied arrays of energy manifestations.  As you and I go about our days with all that entails, it is as if we operate our physical bodies through a plasma of energetic light and color. Some of us move with the grace and style of a bulldozer plowing through life with the subtleties of a bull in a china shop, while others of us seem to be more aware of our instincts and influences of us on the universe, and the universe on. us. Science tells us that all actions will have equal and opposite reactions. There is ebb and flow to the energy all about is.  I am not talking about our own personal Auric field at this moment. Right now, I am talking about the density and vibration of the Earth space all around you and everything around you, as if it were to manifest as a fog or a cloud of energetic pulse. There is an energetic heartbeat to the creation of all. We can tap in to this greater energy field for health and happiness. We know how energizing it is to get out in the sun, soak up the energy, feel the breeze in our face, and breathe in fresh air. These may seem like very ordinary things. But here is where the wonder lies. It is in the ordinary of everyday where the magic is hidden. Become aware of the energy all about you with a sensitivity, curiosity and amazing wonder of the effect of each and every footstep, move and breath you take. Each has a rippling effect on this planet. By becoming more sensitized to your surroundings and your place in the world, will help with the greater realization that All Is One. Sometimes we miss the finer aspects of life, the subtle whispers of love, the answers to prayers, when we force the hand of our life out of lesser motivations. It is good to take a moment to see what it is that really pushes our buttons, drives us on, influences us in this energy around us. It is only then we can consciously choose what we wish to keep and let go of in this life.Namaste

Energy Healing ~ Different Vibrational Frequencies ~ Next Personal Transformation for the New Paradigm with the Shamballa Multidimensional Healing (MDH) Class with Lin is September 22-23


Is one form of energy healing better than another form of energy healing? Isn’t there only One God? Isn’t energy healing all part of God and faith?

These are the questions I would often get from students on their path to enlightenment. These are fair questions to ask, which bring up a host of other questions as well as greater awarenesses of their consciousness-raising experience along the way.

I have witnessed faith healing first hand from a Catholic priest, as a practitioner in Reiki, as a practitioner in Personal Transformation for the New Paradigm with the Shamballa Multidimensional Healing (MDH) Method, formerly known as Shamballa Multidimensional Healing, and in Qigong healing sessions.

All energy healing I’ve seen and used comes from the same Source of healing energy. However, there are different techniques, some of which are limited in time and space, and limited in conscious awareness. It is not a matter that one healing method is “better” than another, it is a matter of using different vibrational frequency. In addition, there is the limitation of the practitioner on many levels, including  their own limiting belief systems, formed in their upbringing, educational programs, religious instruction, or repeating self defeating and self sabotaging habits.

Reiki is a beautiful healing art form, currently used in hospitals all over the world because of its positive effect on healing. But when Dr. Usui re-discovered this particular healing art form, he uncovered part of a bigger whole. There is more to it. The vibration of Reiki is limited to his understanding of the symbols that came to him. These symbols came to him as Sanskrit symbols which he interpreted into his native tongue, which is Japanese, and which is why most of the symbols have a Japanese look. What is handed down through him, is his interpretation of what he saw. These symbols are limited in their consciousness and healing energy. As the vibration and energy of the planet, people and situations rises, there will come a time when Reiki symbols will be less and less effective.

Perhaps the biggest limitation of all forms of energy healing, are energy blocks, and dysfunctional belief systems of the practitioners themselves. This is why the Personal Transformation for the New Paradigm with the Shamballa Multidimensional Healing (MDH) Method encourages major clearances in thoughts, words, actions, and throughout all levels of the aura, allowing for a more clear and pure transmision of healing energy to come in and through the practitioner. When our channel, our divine connection is cleared of our fears, negativity, dysfunctions, and personal preferences and ego, then the healing energy coming through is not side-tracked in fixing us along the way. When practitioners are blocked themselves, no matter which energy healing form they use, they are less effective. The MDH Method uses the highest vibrational frequency energy I have ever seen.

I should mention here that I AM a Reiki Master Teacher; a Qigong Teacher of Levels 1, 2 and 3; a Personal Transformation Master Teacher, formerly known as Shamballa Master Healer and Teacher; a holistic health counselor/practitioner; and a massage therapist. I have worked with these energies for 13 years, and have received other energy modalities as well. Qigong is the spiritual artform, whereas Tai Chi is the martial art form, of gathering and using divine energy through breathwork and precise movement. This also is an extremely effective modality for the self and for others.

If you are searching for a class that will help you cut the ties that bind you, dysfunctions that immobilize you and negativity that brings you down, then I recommend taking the next two day Personal Transformation for the New Paradigm with the Shamballa Multidimensional Healing (MDH) Method class, taking place September 22-23, 2012. This is a great class for personal growth and development, as well as a wonderful energy healing class drawing from the highest vibrational frequency available on the planet at this time. For therapists in other modalities, adding Personal Transformation classes will help you in every other kind of work you do.

This two-day class costs $300. It runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day, in Holland, Massachusetts, USA, and will be taught by me. Both days must be attended. Certification is through the worldwide School of Esoteric Sciences. Students will receive clearances, activations and personal transformation practice healing sessions. All levels of Reiki practitioners, and any other energy healing modality are welcome to attend. All former Shamballa Multidimensional Healing Levels 1-4 students, can take this upgrade class to stay current, or to refresh themselves. Students must RSVP at linhourihan@yahoo.com. The $100 non-refundable deposit is due by September 15, 2012, and may be mailed to: Lin Hourihan, P.O. Box 75, Fiskdale, MA  01518.

There are many hotels and restaurants in the area for those arriving from greater distances. Bradley International Airport is 53 minutes away.

Where Does Your Energy Come From?


This week we’ve been looking into our life’s purpose. It’s a soulful, life-long quest that changes along the way. It has to do with life’s many vibrations and changes minute by minute depending upon the thoughts we think. Did you ever notice that the happier your thoughts are, the lighter you seem to feel? There is an energetic density to our thoughts. We even use the words heavy and light to describe them. There is also an electromagnetic energy attraction to it. The more negative we think, the more we tend to attract more negative thoughts until we spiral down. Likewise, the more positive thoughts we think, the more euphoric we feel, and our vibration rises. The exciting part of this is that once we realize that we have a choice, that we are in control of how and what we think, we can choose the thoughts that bring us, all of us, our hearts, minds and physical bodies into alignment, into balance. Do you feel like you are in balance?

It’s good to remember that we are not victims. In times of low energy, which is also the vibration of sickness, it is beneficial to know that we think our thoughts. Our thoughts do not think us. Yet how many times do we mentally cave in when we forget this? We can stop any negative thinking loop in the tape recorder of our head any time we want to. The problem is, because of the Law of Attraction, very often we don’t want to. This is not to say we ought to live in denial, or say nothing difficult is happening when it is. These are not easy times given the financial constraints, crushing unemployment rates, spiritual crisis and post traumatic stress, just to mention a few stressors. It is not living in a fantasy world that gives us hope. It is our connection to Life that dwells inside of us, all of us, that gives us breath, that rejuvenates us, and energizes us. Perhaps we replenish our depleted stores of energy by being alone in nature, or listening to good music, or practicing yoga, meditation, or in my case, as a massage therapist, might I suggest a massage.

We raise our vibration and our energy by the air we breath, the food we eat, the music or words we listen to, the change of scenery, and the enjoyable hobbies we allow ourselves to get into. Notice the way we raise our vibration has everything to do with the five senses. To be fully alive, we need to exercise all of them. We tend to get out of balance when we forget one of them. The important thing to remember is that we have a choice. These are things we can do on a human level to help ourselves out. But there is more.

Again, the choice is ours. If we are searching for a more meaningful way to journey along our higher life’s path, we won’t simply breathe in air as we go about our day; we’ll breathe in the Spirit of Life. It’s a deeper connection, an awareness of the Divine Spirit being invited into our soul. We don’t have to go off and join a monestary or join the Peace Corps, although those are beautiful things to do and please do them if you are called to do so. But for the majority of us I would advise to bloom where we are planted. Think about this breath for a minute. How is it we are made? The story goes, we are made of the stuff of the earth, and we did not become animated, until the breath of Spirit was breathed into us. We are alive and made in the image of the Creator. It’s the Divine breath in us that keeps us alive. We can be ego filled and strong willed, but at the end of it all, when our breath goes back to the Creator, so do we. What an amazing sharing of life we have with the author of life. It’s very personal. It’s very unique. It’s very real. It transends all belief systems. It doesn’t matter what you believe, you will breath anyway, so we don’t have to mentally struggle with this. Just allow, allow, allow …

I welcome any questions you may have, on any situations in life where you might feel stuck, or might appreciate insight from another source. No person is an island. We all need each other. I am here for you. I thank the Creator of All for me, and for you, and that together we journey on.
