Raising your awareness

Awareness or mindfulness (vipashyana or shamata in Sanskrit) can bring inner peace; it is putting meditation into practice in your day-to-day life. In fact, doing anything without expecting any result is meditation.  But to increase awareness, practice being mindful of all the things that you use to torture yourself with – become mindful by abandoning your expectations about the way you think things should be and what others may think of you.   Out of our mindfulness, begin to develop awareness about the way things really are. You may realise that the universe is unfolding as it should.

An ancient model of healing that uses awareness can be found in the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali (which was echoed by Buddha in his first sermon Four Noble Truth’s).  In short, the model is an outline of the stages in the healing process, presented as four questions:

  1. What is the nature of the pain that all humans experience?
  2. What is the cause of that pain?
  3. What will be experienced when the pain is removed?
  4. How can the pain be removed?

These questions are designed to bring awareness to the true nature of the issue so that it can be dropped and the healing can occur.

Osho’s Past Life Healing Therapy tells us that human beings are generally programmed to achieve a higher state of consciousness.  Each one-to-one Past Life Healing session will help raise your consciousness and raise body-bound memories to awareness.  You can experience remembered events from your personal akashic record; memories from your individual path of evolution through eons of lives.  In this way, current life issues can be seen for what they are and, ultimately, dropped completely.

The first time I tried Dynamic Meditation

“I never tell people to begin with just sitting. With a mad dance, you begin to be aware of a silent point within you; with sitting silently, you begin to be aware of madness” – Osho.

The first time I tried Dynamic Meditation it was in Mysore, South India. There were about 20 of us. We were all students of B. Nagakumar (pictured below) who runs the Mumuksha Centre for Transformation in Mysore and was accepted into the order of Osho sannyasins. The meditation space was a traditionally constructed large mud hut (also pictured below). No words of ample meaning can describe the powerful experience.

Osho’s Dynamic Meditation is a physical, intense and effective way to balance your emotions and energies. Osho believed that cathartic methods were necessary as it is difficult for modern people to just close their eyes and sit and enter meditation.

There are videos on YouTube you can watch and/or CD’s you can purchase to take you through each of the five stages to this meditation. It can be done alone or in groups. If there are a group of you then you should close your eyes and be oblivious of the others (and keep a safe distance!) The meditation is best done in the early morning.

This meditation lasts one hour and has five stages. Each stage has a different music (except for the 4th stage where you simply observe the silence). The first stage consists of chaotic breathing for ten minutes. This is hard work. Especially if you breath correctly, i.e. with so much energy that the room shakes! In the second stage you vocalise your emotions and go completely insane for ten minutes.  I wonder if by voluntarily losing your mind, it will prevent actual (involuntary) madness later on in life (?).

In the third stage you jump up and down for ten minutes whilst chanting “WHO!” – being careful to keep the legs straight when jumping. The resultant shock waves release energy festering in the hips and help balance emotions. Again this is hard work. Remember it’s a marathon not a sprint so don’t be over enthusiastic (ten minutes can feel like a long time!)

In the fourth stage you freeze where you are and observe the silence for fifteen minutes. After so much physical work it is easier to be a silent observer to your thoughts – to watch them slow down and hopefully catch a glimpse of blissful silence.

In the final stage you dance for fifteen minutes. It’s a welcome and necessary warm-down.

Meditation is the proven way for a person to transform their consciousness and take a truly spiritual path. Nothing else can take you from beyond the day to day thinking mind and into the realm of universal awareness. In the words of Osho:

“No therapy can make anybody enlightened. The best any therapy can do is to remove the barriers to meditation, and then it is up to the grace of Existence to bring about the shift in consciousness called ‘enlightenment’. Most therapies know nothing of mediation or consciousness, they work primarily to restore wounded dysfunctional personalities. Most therapists are not meditators and they know nothing of the vast potential for human awakening.”

How was Past Life Healing Therapy first discovered?

Past life healing may have been practised in India for over 4000 years. Patanjali refers to it in his yoga sutras. Osho (shortly before his death in 1990) and Devageet effectively re-invented it.

Devageet (his Osho sannyasin name; meaning divine harmony) was Osho’s private dentist. When Devageet (and a whole host of other dental experts from around the world) could not fix Osho’s tooth pain, Osho decided to heal it himself. Osho meditated on his tooth ache and went inside the tooth. He discovered the cause of his pain. In so doing, he discovered the relationship between past lives and current suffering.

It was shortly before his death in January 1990, that Osho cured his own tooth ache and delivered a message to his then dentist, which would change Devageet’s life forever. Osho explained that every human body, especially the teeth, contains memories and emotions from past lives going all the way back to the time when life and evolution first began. This is because human teeth are made of crystals so they have the capacity to store vast amounts of information; they are a personal Akashic Record. By helping people confront these ancient memories and emotions and bringing conscious awareness to the same, people can experience their external reality and let go of their current life issues and go deeper into mediation.

Devageet has since dedicated his life to meditation and self-healing. B. Nagakumar studied with Devageet in 2007, having undergone an intensive training in Transomatic Dialogue Therapy at the multiversity of the Osho Ashram, Pune, and was certified as a Transomatic Dialogue Therapist.

I was introduced to Osho’s teachings and techniques by B. Nagakumar and was certified by him as a Past Life Healing Therapist in 2015.

How to get the best out of Past Life Healing Therapy

Consistent effort in your healing process provides the best results. Past life healing therapy is the perfect aid to meditation/self-discovery, irrespective of your religion / faith / beliefs / scepticism.

It does not matter whether you believe the experiences of a past life healing session are an actual past life memory, or just imagination, or merely symbolic. Try to approach a session with child-like innocence and suspend what you think you already know. If you remain open and non-judgmental then you can allow the healing to occur. If you allow the analytical /rational/conscious side of your brain to dominate then you will miss the opportunity (and, in any event, you will have plenty of time to analyse your experience after the healing session has concluded). So empty your mind and trust in the process to get the best results out of a session.

My healing journey so far

“One who has known himself will know the other also” (Osho).

I found yoga at a time of total despair in my life. My wife had died. She was my everything. I became totally hopeless. Everything was meaningless. I did a lot of mourning and soul searching. Ultimately, I turned inwards and came face to face with reality.

At this time in my life, a good friend of mine (and my then kung fu instructor) happened to end his career in the NHS as a pharmacist, to pursue another great passion of his – to set up a yoga retreat in Spain. Having been through so much, I was keen to get away and I liked the thought of doing some self-healing / yoga.  I decided to try my hand at vinyāsa flow yoga by attending his retreat for two weeks. I have practiced yoga nearly every day since then. That was over 4 years ago now.

Last year, and in the pursuit of yoga, I decided to go to Mysore (South India); the home of Ashtanga yoga.   I had managed to negotiate 6 month sabbatical/ period of leave from my high-flying career as a lawyer. I had heard that the founding father of modern yoga (T. Krishnamacharya) was born in Mysore and some of the most renowned yoga instructors in the world still teach there today.

Some of Krishnamacharya’s most dedicated students included K. Pattabhi Jois and B. N. S. Iyengar. I initially trained with the nephew of Pattabhi Jois (Master G) and I then had one-to-one daily tuition with Suresh Bhat for four months (a B. N. S. Iyengar student; pictured below). In short, I came to India for the yoga.

Being as it started at ridiculous o’clock (!) my morning routine of chanting, āsana, pranayama and meditation would leave me much of the day free. I thought of taking cooking classes or a Thai massage course or something and vowed to do my research. Before I could begin, my friend took me to a local meditation class. On the way he suggested that it would be interesting as the guy that run it had some controversial views.

The mediation class was led by B. Nagakumar (my guru, “Kumar”; pictured below) who runs the Mumuksha Centre for Transformation in Mysore and was accepted into the order of Osho sannyasins. I was drawn to him. This is the first time I was introduced to Osho’s teachings and techniques.   Everything he said was profound. He appeared to express the essence of the wisdom from the ancient sages of India. In so doing, he mentioned that he was to soon start another course in past life healing therapy and that there was one space left. I resolved to sign up to the course as soon as the meditation class was over.

When I got back to my room, I emailed Kumar to confirm that I wanted to attend his course. I then asked myself “do I even believe in past lives?!” I resolved, in any event, to go with an open mind. My instincts told me that I was going in the right direction and I had heard the phase more than once that when in India: “feel; don’t think”.

No words of ample meaning can express the intensity of the past life therapy healing training. It made me question everything I thought I knew. It gave me a new outlook on life. The training helped me bring awareness to the assumptions and beliefs that that caused much of the issues in my life.

I saw how I was responsible for my own suffering and understood that we are all responsible for our own suffering; making assumptions about what other people think / living in the opinion of others and self-imposing demands (to name but a few). I saw the need to let go of my present-life indoctrination. I also experienced how this could be done on a subconscious level by revisiting the life in which the issue first occurred with the past life healing therapy.

I repeated Kumar’s past life healing therapy training course, attended all his meditation classes and completed a further course on Transformational Enquiry Healing. All in all, I spent the best part of 5 months with Kumar.

I ended my career as a lawyer recently having returned to the UK and I am now a fulltime past life healing therapist. I am committed to healing others (in place of financially harming others at a lawyers’ hourly rate!). I continue my daily self-practice of chanting, āsana, pranayama and meditation.

I conduct past life healing sessions for those who wish to benefit from this therapy. Each session starts with an issue that the person undergoing the session wishes to address, and then goes on to connect with the life in which the issue originated. Each session typically lasts between two and three hours.

How many Past Life Healing Therapy Sessions do I need?

With some people, a specific issue or life-long pattern of negative behaviour can be healed in just a few sessions.   With others, multiple session are required to get to the root cause of the issue. In either case, follow-up work is needed for the profound changes to be integrated. In addition, it is extremely rare that by revisiting just one past life you can resolve all your issues.

Your awareness and consciousness has been earned. This is what sets us apart from the animals. Just as someone cannot become educated by attending just one class, neither can the human consciousness become educated in wisdom form just one life. Thus it is necessary to revisit the all the lives which have, at their root, the cause of any current suffering.

When, in this life, you repeat the behaviour (echoed in the events of your past lives), you are given the opportunity to change the outcome and finish the unfinished business. Past life healing therapy helps to complete that which has been left undone as you will relive the failure of the particular past life and release the repressed emotions and see the situation from the view point from your current life. In this way the issue is addressed and the underlying negative emotions cleaned and painful situations from past lives are completely released. You can let the pain go completely because your unconscious mind is no longer trying to bring attention to the traumatic memory or trigger any negative emotions.

How to Approach Past Life Healing Therapy

While many people initially are simply curious about what they might experience, it is important to have a specific issue in mind that you want to resolve during the healing session.   A specific troubling issue or life-long pattern of negative behaviour can be healed in just a few sessions. In so doing, it is necessary to work with each layer of the trauma – in body, mind and spirit- for the healing to be effective.

Each session therefore starts with an issue that the person undergoing the session wishes to address. It is also important to remain open and trust in the process. You will participate in a meditation technique that brings about a heightened state of awareness. You then connect with the life in which the issue originated.

Do I need to believe in reincarnation for past life therapy to work?

In short, you do not necessarily have to believe in reincarnation. If you are willing to trust the process, the importance is the material that is presented by the unconscious mind during the session; not the precise source of that material.   Just as dreams bring messages from your unconscious mind, during a healing session your unconscious mind displays what you need to see and what was previously hidden.

What can I expect in a past life healing session?

In a past life healing session you can expect an intense analysis of the issue (whatever that may be) to get to the root of the problem. This may involve connecting with memories in your childhood from your current life to crystallise the underlying emotions and issue. This may also include memories that originate from past lives. By going to the root of the issue and bringing awareness to it and then revisiting the life in which the issue first occurred, the healing can occur. In the relevant past life you will confront the issue which is effecting your current life and release it. Revisiting your past lives is therefore an intense and powerful way to understand your current life issues and to heal them by dropping your issues one at a time.

How can past life healing work on an energetic level?

In this world, most of us perceive only the physical aspect: our bodies, what we can smell, hear, touch and taste with our physical senses. However, within the physical body we also have an energetic body that needs to be in good health and considered when looking at the causes of illness and suffering.

For example, somebody who believes they are unworthy may attract destructive people and events into their lives. They may not feel conformable receiving a compliment or have a more genralised fear of success. On this level, it is often important to explore negative belief patterns formed in early childhood. However, it is also necessary to explore the past lives in which these problems first occurred to get to the root cause of the issue and drop it completely.
