Emotional/Mind Healing

Most of us have experienced an exorbitant amount of anguish, stress, and anxieties lately. When we are under stress, our bodies produce high amounts of stress hormones, which in turn, suppress our immune functions dramatically. In other words, the more we’re stressed out we are, the more likely we will catch this horrific virus. 

But how could we be Not anxious and Not worried in the height of the covid drama? Throughout the pandemic, the dominant theme of society was “fear.” The media have done a remarkable job in pushing us toward a state of fear, adding far more dramas onto the drama itself. 

As FDR postulated, fear is the worst sucker of all. Let’s not give in to fear, regardless how much the media shouts at us to stay fearful. Since fear is an emotional reaction when we perceive potential threats, there’s nothing really “tangible” in the sense of fear.

We can easily defeat fear, if we truly desire to do so. Maybe now is the best time to take a good care of our emotional/perceptive fields by actively replacing the negatives with the positives. Let’s make a conscious effort to choose hope over fear, smile over frowning, and compassion to our wounded selves. Feeling good in the midst of adversities is a pretty cool thing to experience. It takes a lot of practice, but certainly doable. Daily spiritual tune-in will provide extra fuels in restoring your emotional health. 

Spiritual Alignment First

As an alternative medical practitioner with over 20 years of clinical experiences, I strongly believe the key in protecting ourselves against this virus is not so much dependent on new drugs or vaccines. Rather, the key is to boost our natural immune capacities, as best as we can. 

photo-of-woman-wearing-white-shirt-3435500Just like everything else in the  universe, we are made up of three aspects: body, mind, and spirit. Normally, I would start off recommending physical healing materials first. However, this pandemic has caused such an upheaval in our energetic fields that a more potent and direct approach is called for. So, let’s try to raise our vibratory frequency first by re-aligning (from chaos) and augmenting our spiritual aspects. When we tap into a higher level of vibratory frequency, our brains start producing  powerful neurological signals that will induce a rapid recovery in all aspects of our being, including IMMUNITY. 

Fortunately, spiritual healing is very easy to practice. Spend 10-15 minutes a day, breathing slowly in and out, gently calming your mind first. Think that with each inhalation, you bring in the most pristine and strong healing energy into you; with each exhalation, you release all stagnant, distorted stuff from your energy field. When you start feeling calmer, pay attention to the eternal life force doing its job at every corner of the universe. When we were busy worrying about the virus, the rest of the universe was flowing, flourishing, continuously evolving all the time.

If you feel a deep sense of peace, know that you just completed a session of spiritual healing. You can replace this part with deep prayers, reciting mantras, or whatever you wish, as long as your intent is clear and strong: You’re tuning into the highest vibratory frequency of the entire universe.

How to Deal with the Virus Scare

We are living in an extremely chaotic, confusing, and fearful environment. Never in human history have we experienced such a massive global lockdown that affected almost everyone on planet earth. It feels like the impact of COVID-19 is ten times bigger than that of 9/11; it’s akin to nukes detonated everywhere across the globe.

covid-19

We were informed about clear and imminent dangers of the virus; we followed the government edicts and rules diligently; and we reduced our physical and social activities to a minimum. In the meantime, we had to deal with an unprecedented amount of stress, worries, and anxieties.  Occasionally, many of us felt physical, emotional, and spiritual challenges were unbearable.

Now it seems that we will be allowed to resume normal activities, albeit on an extremely limited scale. As many pundits put it, going back to “normalcy” is not likely to happen. We need to adjust to new, unknown parameters of life, adapt to strange rules and regulations, and deal with many different survival issues. The only thing we know for sure at this point is it will be a very rough ride.

Before I will share my thoughts on how to cope  with COVID-19, I want to put a few things in perspective. 

  • Scientists, medical doctors, and so-called experts do NOT have a clue what this virus is all about. I’ve read hundreds of medical journals and talked with many medical doctors, and the consensus seems to be: We Don’t Know What the Devil This Virus Is.
  • As the true nature of this virus is so elusive, it’s difficult to put faith in testing results (PCR molecular tests, antibody tests, etc.), tracing mechanisms, miracle drugs, and soon-to-be-introduced  “vaccines.” –New England Journal of Medicine, May 22, 2020–Remdesivir for the Treatment of Covid-19 — Preliminary Report
    https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2007764
  • Most importantly, why in the world Nobody who is presumed to be responsible for public health gives advice on how to protect ourselves other than emphasizing social distancing, hand-washing, wearing masks, etc.? Is that all they can offer?

Clearly, when it comes to protecting ourselves, we shouldn’t expect any sensible guidelines to be issued by public health officials or other medical authorities. 

 

Chinese Medicine Says Heartburn is Caused by Three Things

Heartburn happens when the excessive food and liquid in the stomach churns up stomach acid which spills up into the esophagus and irritates the lining of the upper stomach and esophagus, as shown in this picture. acid reflux

Heartburn is often experienced as pain, a burning sensation in the stomach or chest, abdominal bloating, gurgling, distention, or belching.

Let’s jump right into what Chinese medicine says about heartburn, or overall indigestion.Chinese medicine says there are three main causes of indigestion:

  1. Poor diet damages the spleen-pancreas-stomach network.
  2. Emotional turmoil stressed the liver-gallbladder network, slows down the digestive process, and potentially cause hiatal hernia by pulling the stomach upward into the diaphragm.
  3. Pathogens in a post-nasal mucus drip or food-borne microbes can invade the stomach, causing upheaval.

In a nutshell, Chinese medicine views heartburn is not just a digestive malfunction, rather it is a mixed bag of poor diet, emotional/psychological issues, and immune functions relating to sinuses. I can vouch for this theory as almost all of the heartburn patients I have treated demonstrated stress/anxiety syndromes, chronic mucus drips, and relatively poor diet patterns.

 

The Second Point: Pericardium 8 (Laogong) “Palace of Labor”

Laogong or Pericardium 8 is in the center of the palm, between the 2nd and 3rd metacarpal bones, closer to the 3rd metacarpal bone. laogong-56a92d8b5f9b58b7d0f8f31eWhen a fist is made, the point is where the tip of the middle finger touches.

Taoist practitioners and other energy healers who use Qigong emission (external qi therapy) techniques to amplify and balance another person’s Qi frequently use this point from which to emit energy. This point has a direct connection with Kidney 1. Any change at Kidney 1, for example a weight shift, has an immediate and direct reflection on Laogong. In Qigong practices, these four points must connect to Dantien at the lower abdomen for the Qi of the entire body to be integrated.

This point must be open and hollow for Qi to spread into the hand and fingers, and to the entire upper body. It is extremely important point to release pent-up heat in the heart and the head. Laogong is excellent in calming the spirit and resolving exhaustion and fatigue.

HOW TO ACTIVATE LAO GONG

pc8To massage your own Lao Gong, simply rest one hand, palm up, then use the other hand’s thumb to locate and press Laogong. Apply moderate pressure, with your thumb, moving it in tiny circles, as you place your mental focus gently upon the point. Again, two or three minutes will be sufficient.

The sequence of massaging is left Yongquan, left Laogong, right Laogong, then right Yongquan, to make a full circle. It’s best to use this technique before bed, however, it can be used anytime of the day. One full week of self-massaging  these four points will renew your vitality tremendously.

The First Point: KID 1 (Yongquan) “Bubbling Well”

acu-points-kid-1The first point is Kidney 1, or YongQuan, located at the sole of the foot. This point lies in the depression that appears when the toes are curled. It is between the second and third metatarsals, about one third of the distance between the base of the second toe and the heel.

Yongquan is the only acupuncture point on the sole of the foot, the lowest and most Yin part of the body. In my clinical experiences, I’ve found that Kidney 1 is almost completely blocked for most people. Perhaps, it means that in this cyberage, we have simply lost the key in connecting with Mother Earth.

Actually, we use Kidney 1 all the time when our feet are on the ground. Through this point, we maintain our contact with the Earth. This point can be used as a portal through which we can draw upon the energy of the Earth as a tree’s roots draw nourishment from the soil.

Yongquan is a major energy vortex that has the ability to revitalize body, mind and spirit. When a person lacks stamina, strength, will or perseverance, Kidney 1 can help him/her to draw on reserves in order to get a kick-start.This point can also be used in restoring consciousness when someone has fainted. Additionally, this point has been widely used in treating dizziness, headaches, brain-fog, blurred vision, nosebleed and hypertension.

kidney1acupointApply a gentle but firm pressure on this point for two or three minutes. In the beginning, it can be very painful, but the the pressure will lessen as you progress. Always start with left Kidney 1, then progress to your left hand point, LaoGong.

How to Receive Divine Healing Energy

To receive the “heilstrom” (the divine healing energy), the only thing you must do is to “tune in”. Groening suggested that, you need to “tune in” at least once or twice per day. There are two parts to this “tuning in”: the position of your body and your mindset.

1.The position of the body

hands-upward-178x300Sit with both feet flat on the floor, a comfortable distance apart. Place the backs of your hands on your thighs so that the palms face upwards and the hands do not touch each other; and your arms (and legs) are not crossed. Your spine is straight (if possible) but relaxed.

If you can’t sit in this position, you can lie down on the floor or stand straight. Many handicapped people were reported to be held by others also. A far more important factor is your mindset.

 

2. Your Mindset

You need a specific mindset to receive the divine healing energy.

  1. You must believe that healing is possible (for whatever the problems you are dealing with).
  2. A strong and firm intention to heal (again for whatever the issues you have–physical, emotional, mental, spiritual or any other personal stuff too).
  3. An open and receiving mindset–believe that “ask and it will be given.”
  4. Observe–the healing energy enters into you through the top of the head, the bottom of the feet, through your fingertips, practically anywhere in your body. Observe any unusual sensations or feelings. If you don’t experience anything unusual, that’s fine too.
  5. Ignore all negative thoughts or feelings; focus on positive and beautiful aspects.

Usually, Bruno Groening circle of friends groups play background music when they meditate together. Some of the most popular music they play are available on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOJ25vu6vTUhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOJ25vu6vTU.

When the actual healing occurs, some people may experience a temporary setback such as intense headaches, nausea, or even skin eruptions. These are considered to be Herxheimer syndromes that occur during intense purging processes, so don’t worry about it.

What inspired me the most was the story of a lady who was born deaf. After practicing this particular program for six months, she was able to hear in one of her ears, then after three months, the other ear “popped.” Extensive medical evaluations and tests confirmed that her hearing became “normal.” I believe this happened in late 1980s in Germany.

It really doesn’t take much to receive the divine healing energy. 5 minutes twice a day with a clear intent to heal with an open mind is all it takes. This program certainly helps me in feeling more grounded, peaceful, and energetic. Please let me know what your experiences are with this wonderful program. If you want to attend Bruno Groening meetings in New Jersey, let me know.
