Meditation and Sat Nam Rasayan® Healing Workshop with Hari Nam Singh 02/15/2015 – “Healing the Physical Body” – (Review)

HNSHHC20150215-02We held a Meditation and Sat Nam Rasayan® Healing Workshop with Hari Nam Singh at the Healing Heart Center in Hollywood. The topic of the workshop was “Healing the Physical Body”.

We performed three meditations:

LA822-Healing the Physical

LA819-850109-Eliminate Brain Fatigue

LA112-790528-Meditation for Support from the Elements

In yogic tradition, we have ten bodies.  Through the practice of yoga and meditation we can know them as a part of our existence.   As healers, we can relate with any body of our and heal in that relation.  Which body we can best relate with for a given healing application can be found intuitively.

We summarized our common knowledge of the ten bodies:

1. The soul body
The soul body is the primary identification of the self. It is recognized as the spirit within the life that we experience in this incarnation. The soul body transcends and survives our incarnation. Relating with the soul body is relating with the self at the most fundamental existential level. Knowing the soul is knowing that you are you.  The tendencies in one’s relation with the soul will determine how comfortable and at ease one is in “one’s own skin”.
If one has a separation or gap in awareness of the soul body it can cause insecurity or existential anxiety.  Someone who relates intimately with the soul can experience deep security.

2. The negative mind
The negative mind is one of the three mind bodies of our existence. It is the mind that gives attention to and keeps track of details through concepts and the accounting of their component details.  It is an instrument of survival and helps us to plan a course of action.  A main tendency of the negative mind is that its processes are linear and operate only on what is instinctual or has been predefined.
An overactive negative mind can produce a controlling and dominating tendency in behavior towards others. It can stifle creativity and create confusion and fear. A weak relationship with the negative mind can produce a “space case” with absentmindedness and an aversion to responsibility and accountability.

3. The positive mind
The positive mind is the mind that expands our vision to recognize what may be possible.  It helps us to overcomes obstacles in the face of adversity.  It tells us “we can do this”. The positive mind is not dissuaded by details that are operating contrary to our intentions.
A strong positive mind allows our creativity to know no bounds. With it we can expand our ideas beyond constraints that would thwart the negative mind.
A strong positive mind without a complimentary negative mind would allow us to run amok in our dreaming.  We can become a space case, as with a weak negative mind, and become divorced from reality.  We can lose our way in the face of adversity and become confused.  Our resolve can easily crumble.  Our projects may tend never to be finished.

4. The neutral mind.
The neutral mind gives us balance.  It is the arbitrator of the positive and negative.  It gives us the capacity to see beyond opposing tendencies and provides clarity to complex situations.  It is the source of creative solutions. It helps us not to identify with polarity and prejudice our perception.
As healers we look to the neutral mind not to take a position in the healing relation.

5. The physical body
The physical body is the body that we know in the material world.  When sufficient prana is present then the five elements are held together and give life to the physical body.  When prana wanes beyond a certain point, the elements cannot be held together and the physical body expires.  Healing in the physical body is facilitated by including and balancing elements.

6. The arc line

The arc line is the body that  protects the physical.  A strong arc line rejects all negative projections toward the physical. It rejects all mental projections from the point of origin. It rejects attacks by bacteria, viruses etc. The arc line has a connection also with the pranic body.
In its projective aspect the arc line projects one’s intentions. A strong arc line will give one the power of prayer.  In conjunction with the radiant body, the arc line strengthens the healer’s ability to heal.

When the arc line collapses, it gives a person a feeling of vulnerability,  helplessness and inadequacy.  When it is strong, one feels as if (s)he can do and accomplish anything.

7. The aura

The aura is the electromagnetic field that surrounds a person making one invulnerable to attacks from the outside.  It protects from negative projections, as the arc line, but also keeps one safe from all danger.  When a person’s awareness grows beyond the physical body, and (s)he can “feel the room”, and everything in it then the aura is expanded and strong. Martial arts practice gives a person awareness of the surroundings and expands the aura.

8. The pranic body

The pranic body is the process of a person’s “life energy”. A strong pranic body brings health and inner strength to the physical body.  The pranic body supports the arc line and the aura. A strong pranic body aids the healer with healing others. A weak pranic body diminishes vitality and makes one prone to illness.

Most martial arts train the practitioner to draw prana from the earth and maximize the flow in the pranic body.  This assists with directing and manifesting one’s intentions in relation with interactions with others and the environment.

9. The subtle body

The subtle body is the part of a person’s being that transcends space and time. Through the subtle body one can be aware of and know things not immediately  present in the physical and in time. The subtle body survives the incarnation and is present in the “ethers” as a “record” of ones existence. One can have awareness of another person by relating with and through the subtle body.

10. The radiant body

The radiant body is the quality of the electromagnetic field of a person that makes an impact externally and internally.  One’s intentions interact with the radiant body in a more subtle way than with the arc line. The radiance of the radiant body relates with more than a single intention as it permeates one’s entire presence and produces an impact. That impact is felt externally by others and internally with the self.

A strong radiant body has the power to heal others through one’s presence. A strong radiant body gives one confidence and a strong feeling of self and being whole. A weak radiant body makes one unsure and unconfident. In an extreme case, it can produce self destructive behaviors, such as unhealthy addictions and allow compulsions to rule the self.

Meditation and Sat Nam Rasayan® Healing Workshop with Hari Nam Singh 01/18/2015 – “Healing the Inner Projection” – (Review)

We held a Meditation and Sat Nam Rasayan® Healing Workshop with Hari Nam Singh at the RaMa Yoga Institute in Venice, CA. The topic of the workshop was “Healing the Inner Projection”.

In our healing we use the meditative mind to project an intention to heal.  We constantly project our intentions in our relations with others and ourselves.  How we project and how effectively we project our intentions determines to what great degree our relationships with ourselves and others are working.

In this workshop we performed meditations to stimulate and open the third eye, to understand and feel the soul and to remember the saint within.

Centering our awareness in the third eye, we contemplated our partner’s inner projection to enhance and increase the projection of intentions for self healing.  We modified the inner projection to heal insecurity and anxiety and to enhance and strengthen the radiant body.

Kabir’s Wisdom

“The fish in the water that is thirsty needs serious therapy”

Poet Saint Kabir

Kabir01 

Guru Nanak meeting Kabir, Asian Art Museum, 19th Century, Opaque Watercolor

The renowned mystic, poet, and saint, Kabir, was born in Varanasi, India sometime in the early 1400’s, a time in history that parallels the lives of other great leaders, such as Guru Nanak. Some 541 hymns from Saint Kabir are to be found in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib and indeed it is said that in his lifetime Kabir reached “a remarkable synthesis of Hindu, Muslim, Sikh and even Christian beliefs.”  Like Nanak, Kabir lived an extremely humble life on the outskirts of town, was a family man and a weaver. His writings were referred to as “banis” or “slokas,” having the express intent to evoke the highest truth and spiritual development for the reader. As evidenced in the excerpt above, “the glorious role of the mystic is to help us accept God more as He Is–and ever less than our prejudices and fears want him to be.” 

Kabir in Siri Guru Granth Sahib 

PRABHAATEE: First, Allah created the Light; then, by His Creative Power, He made all mortal beings. From the One Light, the entire universe welled up. So who is good, and who is bad? || 1 || O people, O Siblings of Destiny, do not wander deluded by doubt. The Creation is in the Creator, and the Creator is in the Creation, totally pervading and permeating all places. || 1 || Pause || The clay is the same, but the Fashioner has fashioned it in various ways. There is nothing wrong with the pot of clay – there is nothing wrong with the Potter. || 2 || The One True Lord abides in all; by His making, everything is made. Whoever realizes the Hukam of His Command, knows the One Lord. He alone is said to be the Lord’s slave. || 3 || The Lord Allah is Unseen; He cannot be seen. The Guru has blessed me with this sweet molasses. Says Kabir, my anxiety and fear have been taken away; I see the Immaculate Lord pervading everywhere.

When your flow of thoughts becomes complementary…

Reprinted from a communication by Hari Jiwan Singh “Life with Yogi Bhajan”

Sat Nam Dear Family,

“When your flowSSS20150115 of thoughts becomes complementary, not contradictory, life comes to a state of real relaxation,” the Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan, answered me driving back from a dinner function at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. It was one of those balmy L.A. nights when, even the smell of the ocean traveled all the way to Beverly Hills. For a guy like me from St. Louis, this smell was always romantic and intoxicating. It produced a feeling of well-being in my consciousness.

It was spring of 1988 and we were beginning to spread our wings spiritually, socially, and business-wise. An added perk for me was that Beverly Hills was our jumping off point! On this occasion, we had just come from a big party for the U.S. Marshals Service. This is the United States law enforcing arm working in many areas for the U.S. Government.

The Siri Singh Sahib Ji often relaxed in the afternoons by visiting Artin’s Jewelry Shop in the heart of Beverly Hills. A colorful varied cast of people visited this shop: tourists, Hollywood stars, executives, Hollywood want-to-be’s, businessmen, etc. frequented this lively shop. It was like the social salons of the olden days!  Notably, this is where we forged many new relationships.  Fortuitously, one gentleman we met happened to be closely tied in with the U.S. Marshal’s Service. He promoted events like this dinner which raised money for the Marshal Officers who needed more help than the Government provided. It was a noble cause and a genuine seva, selfless service.

I attended this gala event with Yogi Bhajan along with two of his secretaries. Our security team remained in the lobby as dinner seats were at a premium.  The audience was also filled with many movie stars and movers & shakers – big wigs from every professing vying for their place in the social status of Beverly Hill. Our host’s wife owned the Hollywood Reported, the newspaper bible of the Hollywood entertainment industry.  Beverly Hills is a relatively new city, so money and celebrity status can do there what it can’t do in many other places and the money and prestige of the industry people was present everywhere. This was a very very successful event. Bob Hope, Jimmy Stewart, and Donald O’Conner entertained – old Hollywood at its best! Our host and promoter of this event was the gentleman we had met at Artin’s.

As we entered the large ballroom, fashionably late, we were escorted to the front table with our host. I could feel all eyes on us as our presence spoke before we did. Our beloved teacher had done it again. We were dressed beautifully in bana (our spiritual clothing). The best Beverly Hills could provide accented our appearance – jewelry, purses, shoes, manners, grace were all provided for us through our teacher’s grace.  We were not only comfortable in this environment; we were respected and even celebrities among the celebrities! Because of our bana, everyone noticed us. And, do you know who was the most pleased, our host, that’s who. Our relationship was bonded.

The following week, we met our host again at Artin’s. He, again, was greatly appreciative of our appearance at the gala and then mentioned something very auspicious to our teacher. He told him that the bidding process for the security industry for some venues of the Marshal’s Service was coming up and we should submit bids. Just one of these contracts can be worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Our host offered to do whatever he could to help us in this process, and he did. We had a small security company in New Mexico at the time. Just the process of getting ourselves into position to bid was a miracle, but that’s another story.

This giant step was the beginning of the ascension of Akal Security, our business which, today, is one of the largest security companies in the world. All this was because of our teacher. He delivered. I was just lucky to tag along. This is just a part of his grand legacy. It’s up to us to continue to grow it.

Anyway, back to his answer to me in the car on the way home from this grand gala affair. I half wondered and half asked him, “Sir, you have more guts than anyone I’ve ever seen. Where does this confidence come from? Were you always this way?” He chuckled, smiled and said, “When your flow of thoughts becomes complementary, not contradictory, life comes to a state of real relaxation.

It took me a while to figure out what he was saying. I understand it now. His answer had several meanings as usual. First, it meant that confidence and relaxation go together. If you’re not relaxed about who you are the confidence you have will not be experienced by others. And, it’s confidence which attracts others, including big wig movers and shakers. Confidence trumps all other attractiveness. Our teacher’s confidence was displayed and experienced by those present at this event.

Next, the key to his confidence was his complimentary flows of thought. What he meant by this is that insecurity no longer haunted this process. Fear, hate, jealousy, anger and frustration were no longer interferences. There is always more to learn, more awareness to behold, but as we learn more, we do so without insecurity getting in the way; we don’t have to overcome our previous thinking anymore. Thoughts then become building blocks for growth, not issues to overcome and discard.

Finally, his intuition took him up the golden chain of spirituality, the Golden Chain of Raj Yog, of Guru Ram Das.  His flow of thought was consistent with Guru Ram Das. He was connected straight to his Guru. He had the confidence of his Guru. He was protected, guided, and blessed by the Guru. Thus total confidence and relaxation was the result. Wherever he went, he was Guru’s representative. He was set. He was a king.

However, the most I learned about his statement was that we lived off of his blessings. He was the reason for our growth, individually and collectively. This story is just one example of how I saw his life create who we are. We can’t deny this because we saw how he opened up for us all such a life of spirituality, health, service and fun!! And he took us where our “guts” weren’t prepared to go, at least at this time. And he not only led this way, he was this way. His Guru made him so. So, once again, on this evening he delivered what his Guru wanted: another brick in building this dharma. Stay tuned,

In the Humility of Service and Gratitude,
