A Prayer for Healing
As I walk this earth, may this physical manifestation
resonate in harmony with the needs of the soul.
Let there be cleansing, let there be clearing,
manifesting more fully the divine upon this earth.
I love Deepak Chopra’s way of expressing this. In one of his works on quantum physics, he states that if we can get in touch with the programmer, we can change the program.
Spirit is your programmer. The mind/body modality is your tool.
The Mind Body Modality is a Tool for Healing

Wholeness comes in living in the Present
The mind/body modality is a tool to help us find balance in the moment, bringing us in our thoughts and in our focus unto the Present. Life: this Present Moment. This is what we have. The past is gone. Tomorrow is the future. To know and fully live in life, we look through the lens of the Now. My esoteric studies tell me that time exists only within the physical brain, that instrument which processes our consciousness. Without the brain, there is only the Eternal Now. I love that. It makes sense to me. And, living in the Now, we truly experience the life we have, the moment we have, and we do not color it with longing for what was old or wishing for what has not yet been. Living this way, in the Present, keeps us healthy. Grounded in the Present, we know Wholeness. We live what we truly have: we live the Now.
If you hold your hand out in front of you and draw the symbol for infinity, you will receive this message. Presented before you as you make this sideways figure 8 is Life unending, a continuous flow of up to down and down to up. Yet, what else do you see? You see a middle point, a place of balance, a point where it all intersects, a space of stillness within constant movement. This point of balance, this meeting point, is our Now. Go there. Live your life through this now and you will know Wholeness. It is comforting even to realize that there is nothing so horrible that will not change, nor joy so intense that is lasting. What is lasting is the Now, the fullness we have of life, our joy and sadness, our strength and weakness, our Present Moment. Live this Present and you will have a life which is full. The symbol for infinity is an energy lesson that helps us. This is a truth we learn to live while we practice our mind body modality.
Living in the Now is a very rich experience. Who of us would stop the flow? Who of us would throw out what life has carved within us? Each experience we have brings us lessons, gives us gifts, and offers us opportunities to gift unto others. How powerful it is this cycle we see as our life-stream. If we chase the past or live only for the future we miss the Now. For there to be healing in our lives, we need to live the Now. The Present Moment of Life includes it all – that incredible feeling of power and movement in balance with peace and stillness. Constant change, eternal stillness = life.
The mind/body modality is our tool taking us ever again to this beautiful meeting ground of opposites. Know the center that is your constant and you will know peace.
The Many Paths to Healing
The mind body practices we will explore and learn together come from the Eastern modalities of yoga, qigong, and meditation. Each offers a path to wellness. Each has a gift for us. Yoga begins with the body to unite body, mind, and spirit. Qigong begins with the qi, or energy level, to create more life, more flow within all the energy levels through which life is sustained. Meditation tells us that if we will quiet the mind, we will find the soul. Each of these modalities teaches us practices to work within our inner self, the heart, breath, and essence that we are – body, mind, and spirit.
Mind Body Power is a Process
Techniques to Follow and Energy Truths to Experience
Learning a mind body modality is a process. We begin with technique: how to perform the modality, the movement to make, the breath to use, the focus to have. This is our first step. We become familiar with the method of performance. Once method is learned, we find ourselves free to feel and sense the heart of the experience. Being deeply involved, we are able to open into the space where change becomes possible. In this energy space, I think of as magical science, input does evolve into output. Remember, nothing stays the same. Energy always changes, from one state into another. Honoring the rule of energy within our mind body practice, we honor the process that can bring us change.
The creation of health is a matter of focus. What we focus upon we become. What we live repeatedly in our thoughts and in our emotions we live in our lives and see manifest within our bodies. To change your body, change your mind. To change your mind, work with your body. We are mind body. We are body mind. These are beautiful tools gifted to us by Spirit. Use your tools. Use your thoughts. Use your body. Each layer of life helps the other. As you practice your mind body techniques, strengthen within yourself that which brings to you a sense of wellbeing. Breathe out and let go of all you feel of tension, of discomfort. Let it fall from the body. Let it leave the body/mind. As you form new habits, putting the energy principles into concrete practice, you can and you will create vitality in your life.
Always, always, this will happen when we let it. As my husband said to me so long ago, “Happiness is a leaf falling from a tree. Love is the moment we see that leaf.” In Love is the energy of our soul and the Moment we find that Love, we find healing. We find healing when we open ourselves to live our spirit while seemly residing in this flesh. The body is only our shell. Spirit breathes through us.
Healing is living fully,
being who we are and
bringing who we are
The path to wellness is our journey within, where we find our way to live from the inside out. No external you know as flesh or solid is as powerful as the internal spirit you are as you live this life. Healer, heal thyself. Heal the Whole.
