  the Light of Healing

                                                     ~~Zacciah Blackburn, PhD
Here is where we began this article in Part I, 04.11.13
You may see this first piece, on the Light of Healing here.
 In light of this week's events (the tragedies in Boston, 4/15/13,) it may be most beneficial to read. 

We are witnessing the reality of the New Paradigm emerging.
In the midst of this new birthing and growth, there is evident distortion and chaos around us.
We are being asked to release those things which do not serve us, and to align with that which is our true essence, being, and power.
Read Part I :  

 Part II is now available here.
Part III will be available in the near future.


BOSTON:  What's it All About?
Boston.  It has impacted most of us.  Unless we are out of touch with what is going on in the world around us.
Some are deeply touched by grief, anger, fear.
Some more directly than others.
How do we handle this?How can we help?Certainly, to those directly exposed, or close to the tragedy, and to those who experienced it, there may be deeper questions and answers.  I pray these reflections are beneficial to all.


But, for those of us on the fringe of this experience, the help part is a multi-layered question, from direct impact of contributing to helpful organizations like the Red Cross, to being vigilant within ourself of what we hold in, and express through, our own heart.
To imagine these extreme acts of violence can be easily changed is a stretch for many of us, when there appears so much intolerance in the world.  This, also, may require deeper reflection than I can offer in this day.

Yet, this is an incredible opportunity to learn how we function in the face of chaos and suffering.  And, literally, how we create the world, and our experience of it, around us.

Are we, now, acting from a place of reaction, or quieting action within ourself?  Or, more, even quieting the waves of chaos in the ether around us?  Do we even understand these principles?

Are we overcome by the sense of grief, suffering, or fear of future events?Or, can we use this as an opportunity to learn how to come into ourself, and create a gentle and harmonious rythm to breathe into the world, to calm the waters of reaction, volatility, fear, confusion, hatred, intolerance?
I do not, in any way, wish to belittle the real grief, or terror, of those who were present, or suffered real loss or injury in this experience.
At the same time, I suggest, if you are watching the barrage of opinions and reruns of the violence and its aftermath, that, first, you turn your TV or internet connections off when you find yourself entraining to the confusion and terror the media are inflicting upon us through this tragedy.  And, second, you take real time to contemplate any sense of confusion, anger, grief, or fear arising within you.  I say again, this is a profound opportunity to pay attention to your process, your reality, how you create the two, and how they are directly intertwined.

In terms of helping, if you can do nothing more, donate some blood or money to a charitable organization that strives to create World Peace, tolerance, and cross-cultural exchange, as well as organizations like the Red Cross who are in the trenches when such tragedy strikes.
But, again, let us take the time to peer within ourself, and see how we are reacting to this.
Find a method of increasing coherence, transform the suffering you feel, into a more peaceful, light filled state.


How and why should I do this?One, because what you generate into the world is an act of creation.  And, if you are generating panic, fear, grief, confusion, you add that to the collective dialogue of unseen wounding expressed on the ethereal planes.
Two, because, if you understand the essential nature of the transformative heart, by entering a conscientious state of coherence, with the intent of transforming the energies of pain and suffering, you shall do so.  Whether it is a grandiose transformation or a minor inflection of your own will, will depend upon your own quality and adeptness.
Become the transformative heart of healing and compassion, for those suffering, by holding the highest, purest essence of light and compassion in your own heart.  Breathe it out into the world.
Send it, with conscientious intention, to those suffering.  Not in sympathy of their suffering and pain, but in utilizing your pure essence to transform their cloud, or shroud, of suffering.They may be incapable of seeing any light from within this tragedy they have suffered.
Breathe out your pure light and essence, imagine you are surrounding and touching their hearts, infusing them with pure light and awareness, with a transformative light that will penetrate their darkest moments.
Breathe in their suffering and pain.  Let your own light principle, held clearly, cleanly, stilling, and distilling, within your own heart, be a fire of transformation, that purifies the suffering of the world.
All the great masters and teachers offered this tool, the Heart of Compassion, the Heart of Perfect Wisdom.

If you wish to understand these principles more deeply, I invite you to read our articles in this newsletter on the Light of Healing, as well as following upcoming articles on this subject.
You may also wish to look through our many articles on compassion and healing, as well as engage in some of the free sound/practice offerings on the articles page, and within those articles.  
Better, for more direct understanding, and ability to practice and enhance your adeptness in such practice, attend our programs and practices that focus, not only on our own transformation and awakening, but on world service, in real healing prayers for the benefit of others, in which we teach the nature of the Transformative Heart.

This would include the World Healing Service and Prayers in communion with The Waters of the World, held on Sunday, May 5, in the concluding ceremonies of our Beltane The Matrix of Ascension practice, and in other future practices..

I will share more in regards to this in the weeks to come, in the articles in this newsletter.  Please share with others.  There is a button at the top and bottom of our newsletters with which you can easily do this.
In the meantime, notice how you are feeling.
Don't just sit with it, especially if you feel in a place of dis-empowerment.

If you are suffering, change it.
You have the power to affect your own outcome.
I will share more to assist in this.

Many blessings in all that you are doing.
In my next newsletter, I will continue this series and continue with the art of healing.
I will, also, offer a free sound practice you can listen to and participate at home.I encourage you to discover and empower yourself with your own authentic healing.
Join us in our many practices to participate deeply in this rich awareness, with authentic teachings and practices which can bring you into these illumined states of our own authentic Knowing and Being.

Please take time to focus upon that which will assist you if you are impacted by this incredible tragedy in Boston.Reflect on my article in the next column on this.
I will give more meaning to this, through these coming newsletters.

I pray for your wellness.

Learning the Art, and the Heart of Compassion, also, are intertwined in this.
The ability I speak of in this article (Boston, What's It All About?) to heal through the art of compassion is real, and qualified when we understand these principles.

Blessed Light of All Creation.
I call upon all Powers that heal!In a Sacred Way I do this,
for the benefit of All.

More shall follow.

Join us in our programs for in depth direct experiential practice in this deeper knowing, deeper being, deeper immersion in our authentic nature, in relationship with the Greater Whole!
Part I here 
 Part II here

From the last article, to better explain what remains upcoming:
What follows will be a more complete understanding of how our 'knowing' and 'will' can (and does) intermix to create the reality we choose.  (If it is not our the power of our 'knowing and will,' then it is the power of our 'doubt and will,' and this leads to the confusion and chaos we experience in our life.
With more complete knowing, and direct use of our will, we enter the more direct potential for healing ourselves, claiming our power and will.  We can use many combinations of the template of 'knowing,' the power of forgiveness, and gratitude, the claiming of our divine authority and dignity which ignites that deeper 'knowing,'  as well as our relationship with the Divine, the greater Cosmos, as well as our luminous (light) body, which co-exists within our phyical reality right now.  We shall look at how to dissolve Karma, step into our authentic power.  Let us move this new paradigm forward, together, in this new reality emerging.  We each have our part, and our own power to do so.  Have you determined yours?  Are you ready?  Are you aware you already know how?Watch next week for continuation/completion of this article!  (and more in weeks to come.)
I look forward to seeing you, and speaking again with you soon!
We wish you many blessings.
More coming in our next news  (sign up here)...
Blessings to you all.
What Are We Being Asked to Give Up?
(If you did not see our last article on this topic, you may view it here.)
It speaks of the impending Spring,
and the need to let go of the cold and hard that binds us from the new, and from movement, pure and life fulfilling.
I am reminded of the alignments we are currently facing in the heavens.  Where a ‘huge alignment’ of  7 planetary aspects in Pisces, where there are ‘no books that can explain this’ alignment, or the quality of ‘influx of Divine Grace;’ and, that we are a world being asked to heal itself, and recognize it’s ‘oneness…'

Our practices embody these principals of sound and consciousness.
We welcome you to ask about our work and practices which might benefit you.

Our School of Sound Healing teaches these practices.  Watch for our next article on the art of Sacred Sound, and how to attune to heightened states of consciousness, embrace, embody and voice them.
Our Egyptian practices, and other esoteric programs, embody these principals, such as our upcoming Horus and Golden Body Practices.
And, they are part of our Earth Energies classes.
