My first acupuncture treatment was life changing. This was when I first “saw” a spiritual being who looked like an old Chinese Master. I knew he wasn’t physically in the room, but none-the-less I could still see him clearly standing in the room while Pat, the acupuncturist, inserted acupuncture needles in my body, When Pat left the room, the Old Chinese Master hovered over my body, moving his hands and I started to “see” lots of colors swirling within my mind . I also could feel new energy flowing within my body. This experience was why I became interested in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and then became certified in medical Qigong.
Later, whenever I felt I needed some assistance during a medical Qigong treatment I was giving, the Old Chinese Master would show up in the treatment to help me. Sometimes he would bring another spiritual being with him, who I called the Microbiologist, because he seemed to work at a very micro-level on the cell structure of diseases (such as with cancer cells).
When I retired from my Qigong practice, I shifted my focus from healing individuals to now working to heal humanity. This healing approach has been challenging and frustrating at times because the improvements and changes seem very slow and sometimes nonexistent.
Recently I was discouraged with the lack of progress but then the Old Chinese Master and the Microbiologist came to visit! They were here to assist! It was just like the olden days.
They reminded me that healing humanity is just a bigger version of healing a single individual. Here is Qigong healing process we use to heal a person, and it is the same over all process to heal a society:
- You conduct an assessment to determine where there is stuck energy (Qi).
- You then purge and remove the stuck energy (clean the vessel)
- You then fill the vessel (society) with clean, vibrant, nourishing subtle energies.
- You then focus on flow and balancing the energy in that vessel (society).
I told them I was focused on the patient being "the United States" and I was using societal problems as the method to assess and determine what needs to be healed. The Old Chinese Master and Microbiologist agreed with my approach and confirmed that the symptoms of stuck energy are being shown in the failures in our society. For example, a congress and senate that refuses to do its job of balancing the power of the executive branch is a symptom of stuck energy. An unfair judicial system indicates impaired energy flow and a fragmented and haphazard method in handling a pandemic indicates a lack of balance.
They then shared how the Trump era has provided exposure of many societal problems. Racism is the current focus, but it has also exposed problems with misogyny, corruption, bribes, protecting the rich, and a government inflicting harm on many people (such as children in cages). It has also exposed where the threats to our civil liberties and constitution are brewing. These behaviors and symptoms are now at the forefront of our psyche. This awareness is the first step in the healing process. That awareness is critical for step 1, the assessment of where the energy is stuck. This is how we learn what needs to be removed, cleared, changed, and corrected in order for society to heal.
Step two in the process is to purge and remove stuck energy. In this society, the purging process often begins with demonstrations and then moves forward to the ballot box. The purging process is how to clean the vessel and prepare to receive new energy.
Step 3 and 4 will most likely take place after election (or a revolution). This will be when new ideas and methods will be introduced to help rebuild a society that benefits more of its citizens.
The healing process is moving forward. Just like any healing, it is often difficult, painful, and messy. But things really are moving in the right direction.
I am now feeling encouraged. I now have validation that the chaos and pain we currently have is just temporary and part of the healing process. We really will become a better society and create a better world than the one we are leaving behind.
