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. Jan was confused – should he practise the mantra ‘given’ by his root lama? Or should he practise the one suggested by the visiting lama? Continue reading →

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 →

 

Spiritual teachers affect the lives of thousands, or even millions, of people. How and in what ways isn’t normally a topic of conversation. But, as we specialise in looking at the effects of one energy on another, we’re often asked how the energy of a particular spiritual teacher  impacts on the enquirer’s life or spiritual well-being.

This may seem odd to some, but spiritual teachers aren’t any different to any other part of the environment. They radiate certain forms of energy that have observable effects on others energies, with predictable consequences. Obviously, different people respond in different ways to the same energy, but that energy still has its own stable qualities, irrespective of who’s receiving it.

So we thought it might be helpful to describe the energenic effects of the basic kinds of spiritual teacher on their followers. We’ve included one or two examples for each of the categories of spiritual teacher below. Incidentally, although Energy Awareness practitioners tend to be fairly relaxed about energenic observations, we appreciate that many people have strong feelings and opinions about their or others’ spiritual teachers. Therefore, to mitigate any unintended irritation, we’ve only referred to deceased ‘gurus,’ as classic examples of the different types of spiritual teacher.

Of course, many gurus include two or more of the typical energy configurations of spiritual teachers so, as always, reality is more complex than simple categorisations. But, hopefully, this will give you a sense of the various kinds of spiritual teacher. And how they may, or may not, fulfil their particular role in your life.

We touch on some ‘big’ topics in this blog post, necessarily briefly, so feel free to post your questions and comments below.
