MAY Reiki TUMMO Workshops

Thursday, April 22nd 2010 @ 7:52 AM (not yet rated)

Due to unexpected events we postponed our April workshops until the 29th and 30th May. Below is some information about Reiki Tummo and further information is found on our lotuslight webpage.

If you are interested in healing this is a wonderful workshop for anyone no matter what modality you use; if you are interested in Spiritual development then you can ask for no more than this. The Heart is the key to health and happiness. The Master Yoga programme offers the individual the techniques to be able to use the Heart fully and completely.

Reiki Tummo workshops include all levels of traditional Usui Reiki, plus additional aspects which include awakening the Spiritual Heart and the Kundalini.

The connection to the Earth and the awakening of the Kundalini provide a real boost to one's spiritual evolution and complement the traditional forms of Reiki in which the energies flow from above.

Reiki Tummo itself is the first step of a more complete and advanced system of training called Shing Chi Master Yoga.

We will be holding workshops in New Zealand starting off in Auckland on the 29th and 30th May and in Wairoa the following weekend. Please check out the website to see if there are workshops in your area.

ADHD, medication and meditation.

Friday, April 23rd 2010 @ 12:00 AM (not yet rated)

After ten years of homeschooling when my daughter decided to go to mainstream school I bit the bullet and we both attended assessment for ADHD. Ritalin was prescribed and I promptly went back to university (part time) while she completed two years of high school. When she completed her schooling the medication was put aside and I felt I no longer needed it and all was forgotten until this year.

She (my daughter) was venturing into university after working for several years and I was wanting to progress further with my meditation. Maybe it was time for another trip to the specialist!!! My trip to start the Master Yoga 1.5 in Jakarta made me rethink a lot of ideas I had about who I was, and what I wanted to achieve. I knew my main block in regards to my daily prayer/meditation was my overactive and sometimes extremely intrusive mind. I thought, maybe I should just try…

Wow. I am so grateful. For the first time I could sit in silence and really feel+++.

Deeper and further than ever…such peace…such joy.

Heart Meditations

Sunday, April 18th 2010 @ 12:00 AM (not yet rated)

Coming back from Indonesia has seen a number of changes in how I have done things previously and letting go of a lot of "my" ideas and ways of doing things.

This has brought about a flow of new energy and a softening in my life which has begun to make room for other things.

It feels that now is the right time to expand our Heart Meditations in Auckland and we will now have them twice a week introducing Wednesday night 7.30 pm in Henderson. For more details see the calendar.

The heart is common to all people not matter what culture or religion one belongs to. This heart (the spiritual heart) has been spoken of in all the holy books and by a great number of spiritual teachers.

"It’s time for believers to use the Heart to remember Allah" ~ (QS. Al-Hadid : 16).

"The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart." ~ Buddha

"There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. This is the light that shines in your heart." ~ Chandogya Upanishad

The purpose of the heart is to know yourself to be yourself and yet one with God. ~ Edgar Cayce

Blessed are the Pure in Heart, for they shall see God. ~ Jesus

Grown men can learn from very little children for the hearts of little children are pure. Therefore, the Great Spirit may show to them many things which older people miss. ~ Black Elk

Don't Hide Your Heart

Don't hide your heart but reveal it,

so that mine might be revealed,

and I might accept what I am capable of.

The Wanderer Returns

Wednesday, April 14th 2010 @ 10:41 PM (not yet rated)

Back home again after a wonderful three week retreat in Indonesia. Feeling refreshed and very different from how I was before I went. What a real blessing to have such an opportunity. While over there I was able to take part in the first Open Heart 5 and 6 workshops.

While going through some papers and clearing out my draws I discovered some words that I had jotted down many years ago when I was making my way through one of Alice Baileys books.

I'd like to take this opportunity to share them with you as they capture some very special personal realizations while away.


A Catechism

What dost thou see, O disciple on the Path?

Naught but myself, O Master of my life.

Look closer at thyself and speak again. What seest thou?

A point of light which waxes and which wanes and makes the darkness darker.

Look with intense desire towards the dark and, when the light shines forth grasp opportunity. What now appears?

A horrid sight, O Master of my life. I like it not. It is not true. I am not this or that. This evil selfish thing, it is not me. I am not this.

Turn on the light with will and power and fierce desire, and then recount the vision that may come. What seest thou?

Beyond the dark, revealed to me by means of light, I see a radiant form which beckons me. What is this Being, standing gracious in the dark and in the light? Is it and can it be myself?

What dawns upon thy sight as thou standest on the Way, O worn and tired disciple, yet triumphant in the light?

A radiant shining form which is my self, my soul. A dark and sombre figure, yet old and wise, experienced and sad. This is my self, my lower self, my ancient tried appearance upon the ways of earth. These two stand face to face and in between, the burning ground. ...They move and merge....the Path comes to an end. The Way stretches before. Sight is attained, and in the light reality appears.

What canst thou now reveal, O Server on the Way?

Revelation comes through me, O Lord of Life. I see it not.

Why canst thou see it not? What hinders apprehension?

Naught hinders me. I seek not sight nor I have seen. My task is revelation. I seek naught for myself.

What comes thy way for revleations? What hast thou to reveal?

Only that which has for aeons long existed and has for aye been here. The Oneness of the Presence; the area of love; the living, loving, wise, inclusive One, enfolding all and being all and leaving naught outside.

To whom must come this revelation, O Server of the world of living things?

To all enfolded in the living, loving Presence; to those who all unknown to them maintain that Presence and for ever shall endure - as doth that Presence.

And who are those who live within that Presence but know it not?

They are myself and thou, and still they are myself and still are all I meet. It is the one in every form who think mayhap that form is all; who living thus in time and space, see not the light or life within the form, who hide within, behind the veils, between the four and five and see naught else. To them I must reveal the truth.

How will you do this hardest of all tasks, O triumphing disciple?

By letting it be seen I am myself the truth: by living as a fragment of that Presence and seeing all its parts. And thus is revelation brought into the four and by the fifth.
