My thoughts are killing me …

Of course your thoughts are killing you; nothing else can really hurt you.  Indeed, no one can hurt me- that’s my job!

An important part of the past life healing process is proper discussion and analysis / dissection of the issue that the person undergoing the therapy wants to address. It is necessary to get to the root cause of the issue or negative thinking pattern for the healing to work.  The cause of suffering is the way we treat our thoughts.

Life is an opportunity for realisation of this truth.  So, do not believe your thoughts.  Instead observe them and recognise that they do not belong to you, so you need not get attached. Thoughts are like clouds in the sky- they do not belong to you and they come and they go all by themselves – would you argue with a cloud?  No.  Thoughts are also like clouds as they hide reality; they hide the beautiful blue sky above if you look only at the clouds.

I caused a lot of suffering for myself following the loss of my wife.  I believed thoughts like “I wish I died” and “she was my world; my happiness depended upon her being alive”.  In believing these thoughts in the wake of my wife’s death, a part of me (or most of me!) died and I ensured any prospect of future happiness was excluded from my life.  I overcame this prolonged period of depression and PTSD when I realised that these thougths did not belong to me.  I was not the first person to lose a special someone and I would not be the last.   Further, for me to happy, no one has to live for me.  It’s my life, I live for me.  The reality is that I lost my wife.  I needed to accept the reality and ignore my thoughts of past and future; my imagination.  In any event my wife may have been reborn by now.  She may yet appear again in my lifetime as a child of mine in years to come or in some other form.  Past life healing therapy teaches me that much.

To free yourself of suffering and go deeper into meditation, you need to free yourself of thoughts.  That is not to say that must not have thoughts!  It is to say that you must not believe your thoughts without questioning them.  If you understand and recognise that thoughts do not belong to you then the thought will let go of you.

We all live in our own little imaginary worlds.  This is why it is a mistake to judge others by your own standards – how can you ever know what someone else is thinking?  This is the cause of our suffering.  We need to accept reality, to accept what is.  This is how to be here and now.

Save yourself

I rescued a bee today.  It had flown into the house.  I watched it first, buzzing around against the window in a futile effort to fly through the glass.  It was putting maximum effort in.  It sounded like an angry bee.  It was making such a noise flapping those little wings in vain.  It occurred to me that we are all like this little bee – banging our heads against an invisible wall in a futile effort to overcome our suffering.

Nobody knows whether what you are seeing is there or not. These words you are reading may not be there or they may be there but in a totally different way.  The colours you see, the shapes, the forms- everything is projected by the eyes.  And then, your interpretation, your understanding, of these words will be different to others because your interpretation is tainted by you/ your life’s experiences.  You see things according to your own conditioning.  In this way, most suffering comes down to the opinion you have about yourself.

Past Life Healing Therapy can help you drop your issues and rise above your conditioning.  As Osho once said: 

“It’s not a question of learning much. On the contrary. It’s a question of UNLEARNING much.

Has there ever been a moment in life when you didn’t want more than you already had?

Really, has there ever been a moment in your life when you didn’t want more than you already had?  I suspect not.  We all appear to be of limitless desire.  But what happens when you cave into desire?  You desire ten more things!  This is why most rich people are in fact unhappy.  And this is just one of the ways in which we cause our own suffering.  Think about it.

Everything of value that had happened in your life you didn’t see it coming anyway! You never expect the greatest things in life that happen; good things simply unfold.  If you understand this- if you accept it and embrace it and let go of your desires- you will see that the universe is unfolding as it should.  And your issues can melt away as you are bigger than that; your true Self is beyond all that.

Desires lead to expectation and expectation leads to disappointment.  You can read a great review about a movie and then go to the see it at the cinema, only to leave feeling disappointed.  By contrast, how many times have you found yourself glued to the telly at home enjoying some rubbish movie no one has ever heard of?

But how to drop desires which lead to expectations and cause suffering?  You cannot simply flick a switch and turn off your thought process.  And there is no point fighting your thoughts – you won’t win!  The only way is meditation.  Close your eyes and watch your thoughts.  See how they come and go without you doing anything.  See how they do not even belong you to you.  Then notice that the thoughts are not continuous – look out for the gaps – that bit of silence.  Be of no mind.

The more you let go of your issues the deeper you go into meditation and the greater the healing. Past Life Healing Therapy gets to the root cause of your issues.  Life’s problems – illnesses, disease, suffering, anxiety, etc – are all just physical manifestations of deep emotional wound.  And it is no use just addressing symptoms.  It’s just like wanting to get rid of a tree but cutting the tree and pruning the leaves instead of uprooting it.  This is pointless.  New branches and leaves will grow back thicker and stronger.  Unless you uproot the tree you will make it stronger and destroy yourself instead of the tree.

Dreams and self-realization

Dreams can give you indication; they contain a message from your unconscious mind.  Whatever you have missed during the daytime will appear in your dreams.  Anything you suppress, any unfinished business, will appear at night.  Whatever you suppress will be ever-present.  Try to uncover what you have suppressed.  Suppression is like a disease: when you accept, you grow and when you let go, you (self) heal.  Otherwise the disease can spread like cancer inside you; in your existence.

If, in the moment, you avoid doing something or saying something – if you suppress it – you will dream of it.  If instead, in the moment, you become aware of the rising passion or fear (or whatsoever emotion is triggered) then you will not suppress it; you will not dream of it.  Every moment in life is unique so capture it.  It’s your development.  And there is no limit to self-realization.  The soul knows no bounds; it is ever-increasing.

As Osho says, the only way to save the world is one individual at a time.  If you save yourself, you can then (and only then) begin to save others.  As the old Zen saying goes: If every individual strived to make their own life peaceful then we would achieve world peace. The doorway to that self- realization, that change, is meditation.  Past Life Healing Therapy can help you let go of your issues and go deeper into meditation.

Why do we cause our own suffering?

Why do we turn against ourselves? We feel isolated, hard done by, alone, sad, and unworthy.  And sometimes we feel unhappy and angry.

But we all cover it up!  If asked: “how are you”; we always say that we are “okay”. We wear a mask.  We put a front.  We fool ourselves and the opinions of others that we live in.  We are expert con artists and actors.

We enjoy our suffering. Deep down, we feel we deserve it.  It attracts sympathy from others; our family and our friends.  In this way, our suffering validates our imagination; our fears.

The mind – our imagination – the assumptions we treat as real, is the problem.  We need to transcend the mind to heal.  Awareness is only possible when the mind is absent.  Every experience will transform us, if we go into it with awareness.  With this in mind, Past Life Healing Therapy allows us to experience past lives and go the root cause of any suffering.

Past Life Healing Therapy is also a means of self-discovery.  In knowing yourself not only can the cause of suffering become evident but we can better express a loving attitude toward each other-self we meet in life.

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.

Sound / Chakra Meditation

Your life energy (also known as your ‘prana’ or ‘Qi’ -pronounced “chi”) is like electricity which runs along (meridian) lines throughout the human body. Chakra’s are like junction boxes where the lines come together. There are seven main chakras in the upper body, as follows:

The Root Chakra (muladhara) is red in colour and it is located at the perineum / pelvic floor. Specifically, in men it is located in the area between the anus and scrotum and, for women, it is the area between the anus and clitoris. Those who practice yoga will be familiar with the moola bandha- contracting the moola bandha triggers this root chakra. Our basic survival instincts are located in this energy centre. It is also linked to our ability to trust in others.

The Sacral Chakra (svadhistana) is orange in colour and it is located about 2 inches below the navel (also known as the dantian). This second energy centre is linked to our sexuality and family connections. It is also likened to our inner child being associated with creativity, innocence, vulnerability and spontaneity.

The Solar Plexus Chakra (manipura) is yellow in colour and it located in the solar plexus, that is about 2 inches below your sternum in your chest. This chakra is linked to our ego / our self-concept as an individual, fame, authority and free-will.

The Heart Chakra (anahata) is green in colour and it is located just left of the centre of your chest. It is associated with love, hatred, faith, compassion, anger, duty and devotion.

The Throat Chakra (vishuddha) is blue in colour and it is located at the base of your throat. It is linked to our creativity, communication/ expression, our knowledge and abundance.

The Third Eye Chakra (ajna) is indigo in colour and it is located at the centre of your forehead in-between the eyebrows. It linked to intuition, insight/ inner vision, wisdom and relaxation.

The Crown Chakra (sahaswara) is violet in colour and it is located at the very top of your head. It is linked to our union with the Divine and cosmic consciousness and unbounded awareness.

Each of these seven chakra’s resonates with specific sounds that you can make/ chant:

The Root Chakra – “LAM”

The Sacral Chakra – “VAM”

The Solar Plexus Chakra – “RAM”

The Heart Chakra – “YAM”

The Throat Chakra – “HAM”

The Third Eye Chakra – “SHAM”

The Crown Chakra – “OM”

To meditate on the chakra’s and awaken each energy centre first sit down in a comfortable position with your back straight and watch your breath. Once you have settled begin chanting the first mantra “LAM” visualising its location in your body and the colour red. Do this for about 5 minutes and then watch your breath and settle back down.

Then do the same for the second chakra – visualise its location in your body (i.e. the dantian; 2 inches below the navel) and its colour (orange) and chant the mantra “VAM” for 5 minutes or so.

Repeat this routine for each chakra (remembering to leave a gap between each stage as you simply watch your breath and settle back down):

chakras 2

Finally, after chanting all seven mantras you then observe the silence for 20 minutes; watching your breath.

This meditation should only be done in the mornings as it gives you an abundance of energy . Ideally it should be done first thing and before any work out. If you do this in the evening you will not be able to sleep at night!

We are such stuff as dreams are made on …

Yes I have jumped on the William Shakespeare bandwagon! It has been 400 years since Shakespeare passed. He wrote the following beautiful words in The Tempest in about 1610:

“We are such stuff as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep.”

Consciousness and awareness are concepts that greatly interest me. Osho tells us that we do not only dream at night; even while awake we are constantly dreaming. You may be reading these words now but a dream continuously goes on within you. This is why, sometimes, it goes on one ear and out of the other (so to speak). When there are dreams in the daytime you will be doing something but you will be absent. Inside you are elsewhere; occupied.

We are rarely present. We live in the past. Even thinking about being in the present is living in the past: by the time you have analysed what is in front of you the moment has already passed; you have missed it. Feel; don’t think. To feel (as opposed to think) is to be present. Laughter is a great example. Laughter brings up an inner energy and when you really laugh, for those few moments you are in a deep meditative state. There is no future and there is no past; you are present. Thinking stops. You cannot laugh and think together.

Past Life Healing Therapy is a method to come to a non-dreaming state of mind. As Osho once said:

“Mind can be either the source of bondage or the source of freedom. Mind becomes the gate for this world, the entry; it can also become the exit. Mind leads you to hell, mind can also lead you to heaven. So it all depends on how mind is used. Right use of mind becomes meditation, wrong use of the mind becomes madness.”

Visual (object or image) Meditation Technique.

It is no accident that Osho’s Past Life Healing Therapy technique (which I am qualified to deploy) uses meditation as the means to accessing past lives. Meditation and Past Life Healing Therapy are inextricably linked. Both are the only true means of self-discovery and knowing yourself is true wisdom.

With this Visual Meditation Technique you need to choose an image or object to meditate on. The type of image or object used does not matter. The mind simply requires a fixed point of reference for the technique to work. As you focus on the image or object, notice its subtleties: the way the light hits it, its colours, the way it contrasts with the background, how the image makes you feel, whether or not its outline is roughly made or smooth with sharp edges, etc. As you observe the subtleties do not analyse or compare or try to label what you see. Try to meditate for at least 20 minutes.

If you keep focusing and settle on the image then gradually your thoughts will become quieter and quieter; gradually the image will disappear from the mind and transform into bliss. Using this technique you can let go of your thoughts of the past or future and settle into the present.

The other day, whilst walking the dogs, I happened to see a large bird of pray land in a nearby tree. The dogs were off the lead but in an enclosed part of the nature reserve. I sat down, straightened my back and continued watching the bird. I continued meditating on the image of this beautiful bird sat perfectly still in the nearby tree. Watching the bird and focusing on it among the trees, my vision started to blur a little. I then became aware that all the branches from all the surrounding trees seemed to tessellate and form a mosaic pattern all around me. I felt a profound feeling of interconnectedness as I meditated. It was a powerful spontaneous thing.
