Grounding The Spiritual Body

There seems to be a quickening of energies that is impacting several spiritual practitioners. It comes through as an sudden and involuntary need to immediately take a nap. I call these “spirit calls” These spirit calls seem top be part of a “quickening” of energies designed to expand our spirit body and to reduce or eliminate our emotional/pain body.

As a continuation of the prior three workshops, Conscious Nesting, Dissolving Darkness, and Harnessing the Subtle Energies of Intention to Form Your Healing Presence, we will close this series with Grounding the Spirit Body: Coming Home to Yourself. Our focus will be to ground and expand the physical body to become a large container by reducing the pain body and expanding the spirit body. We will practice massive grounding to support being fully anchored to this world, this experience, this life while being able to be expansive beyond our pain body and inherited and cultural planted imprints of who we are.

Reminder of Subtle Energies

The most mysterious property of subtle energy (often called prana, or chi)is that it interacts with our consciousness. Moreover, the human mind is capable of directing subtle energy and commanding it to do whatever we want. The underlying assumption of prana healing is that the subtle body acts as a “blueprint”, so once the “prana” is cleared and decongested, the subtle body will react positively to the balanced energies and subsequently be relieved.

Our intention is a critical part of our presence. Often, we do not realize that our thoughts and emotions are creating an unconscious energy that can impact our intentions. In some cases it can sabotage our dreams and when we are being a healing presence for our self and others.

Intentionality is essential for healing because intention derives from a primitive reality-based drive for relief. Intention therefore is usually accompanied by a commitment to perform an intended action and is considered the ‘crown jewel’ of healing. Some researchers have conceived of a transcendent dimension of reality, where the boundaries of locality, distance and time do not apply, inferring a ‘space’ whereby human beings can project their will or intention on to other systems. It has also been suggested that spiritual and psychic healing enhances body defenses through accelerated enzymatic activity, the outcomes of which are experienced as a sense of wholeness or at one. The conscious state of being ‘at one’ with a healing intention is thought to evoke a self-healing process for both the healer and the one being healed.
