A Maddening Mantra

Several years ago, we had a Tibetan Buddhist client – I’ll call him ‘Jan’ – who’d been given a mantra by his lama, to be recited the traditional  100,000 times. In fact, all this lama’s novice disciples – of whom there are many – were given the same mantra to be recited the same number of times.

The reason Jan made an Energy Solutions appointment was that after he’d chanted the mantra many times for several weeks, he’d had a nervous breakdown. Then he was hospitalised and put on medication. This pattern had happened twice already, and he felt he was going downhill again. The Buddhist organisation to which he belonged said he should carry on regardless – he was just undergoing a ‘spiritual cleansing’ process.

Jan said he’d recently attended a Buddhist training camp where he’d met a visiting lama. The visiting lama had suggested he practise another mantra instead of the one his root lama had given him.

The Vision Of The Heart

Follow Your Heart – the perennial injunction, but, how do you do it? Vision Life Coaching, one of the services we offer, focusses on helping clients learn to follow their heart by transforming challenging areas of their life – wealth, work, relationships, creativity, etc. – especially areas that feel stuck. An energy-aware mentor heightens awareness of the need for change by reflecting back to the client the ways they tend to lose their energy (qi) and how they can cultivate their energy to move beyond the life-limiting karmas that keep them stuck in unsatisfactory states or circumstances.

As a result of these interactions, we routinely see people achieving profound changes within themselves and their lives – especially those who are willing to follow their heart or live with more ‘intent.’

“I can’t thank you enough for enabling me to know me. I can’t really find the words for it. Vision Life Coaching is quite intense, but the most powerful intervention I’ve ever experienced!” Dr. IW, UK

Follow your heart,’ is, of course, a well-known injunction. But what does it really mean?  In this article, we discuss the essential empowerment process that underlies any ascending development – or progressive illumination – of human consciousness. Continue reading →

Everything has to start somewhere, no matter whether it’s the first sandwich someone ever put together, the first igloo constructed by an Eskimo in the Arctic, Newton’s theory of gravity and its associated apple tree, or the beginnings of Buddhism when Siddhartha Gautama sat under a bodhi tree at the place now called Bodh Gaya, in India.

Even though this is obviously true, we rarely pay much attention to where we are when we have a new idea, a new perception, or even an illuminating experience. There is little conscious connection between our current location and whatever our minds happen to conceive of there. In fact, ideas are sometimes said to have appeared, ‘out of the blue’ – as if they came from the sky. Or, perhaps, from nowhere at all.
