What exactly is a Healing Arts Practitioner, what do you do and how can you benefit me?
I would define the term as a person, who is dedicated to studying both the art (experience) and science (systemized knowledge) of living. This information/energy then can aid in the evolution of mind, body and soul (energy body, body of light, dream body ext…) that we may actively participate in the awakening of planetary mind. Anyone can be a Healing Arts Practitioner! And everyone is at least at some point in his/her time on Earth. The school is life and the laboratory one’s own being. Our study involves but is not limited to proven exercises, meditations, sounds, forms, dances and the like that are well established and known to effect the body, and or psyche in definite ways that help to balance our being with emphasis on the quality of the endeavor just as much as the accomplishment of it. It can always be liberating. As a result new and spontaneous experiments and experiences should arise from oneself as a natural consequence of a person becoming more whole with increased self expression. This last part is what really allows for a joyful and highly arousing process to unfold in which you are teacher and student simultaneously. The guru within becomes more and more evident and also reveals the illusion, where the separation between science and art ends. Cultivating inner drive. You are the captain of your earthly vessel. Your flesh suit, as I like to call it. The real question becoming, are you driving it (the flesh suit) or is it driving you?
So how do we go about something so seemingly grandiose as this may sound? It’s actually quite simple. The methodology of the work is to learn a new language with which to receive the signs and signals of life that our paths, our desires can be made clear. To build greater self awareness, more feeling, chi or prana flow as the easterners call it the elusive 6th sense. Increasing self awareness accomplishes this but as we are digesting this new form of communication we must also work at strengthening our resolve so that we can cope with the increased information/energy, which can become a sort of hypersensitivity that we do not want to overwhelm us. This last part is very important. I’m sure we all know the person who has become unconsciously hypersensitive for whatever reason, maybe they experienced a great emotional loss, have used or are using drugs, developed a nervous condition, stopped eating meat unscientifically or were just born that way. Whatever the case may be (we try not to judge the circumstance) the point is they’re on overload.The circuit is tripping and so are they. They simply cannot handle all of the energy, the information, the FEELING of life that that are receiving.
The person has not gained the required steadfastness, enough of a sense of personal gravity, a stable emotional center, to handle the amount of information/energy that is attempting to communicate with them. The only defense against this state of imbalance, next to retreat, is to develop COMPASSION the neutral judgeless emotion. Considered neither positive, nor negative compassion is gravity and gravity is compassion. It embraces all alike, evenly and without judgment. One can apply this concept to one’s spirituality or religion as well. If we reflect we realize that all of the great saints and sages attracted, pulled to them large numbers of followers past and present because of the high level of compassion they shared for their fellow humankind. This attraction can be seen as a type of personal gravity that pulls less self assured souls close by virtue of a gifted and cultivated ability to know what others lack better than they can admit themselves, a rare trait in a society that values extreme individualism.
It is the compassion of our mother the Earth that keeps our youthful minds from disintegrating back into the formless realms as we learn the lessons of self awareness. Well, at least she does until we develop enough of our own compassion to venture forth without her, but lets not get ahead of ourselves. For now we simply want to gain enough personal gravity to be able to experience a satisfying and fulfilling life. Some of us may simply seek to increase our ability to handle stress which is a wonderful side effect of this work, leaving the gravitational embrace of our Mother The Earth will come later but only for the very committed. My friends, do you really think that we will be granted the ability to travel to other worlds successfully without fully loving our own first. Other worlds are not only planets but also include people, earthly places, and experiences too. Your body is your Earth. Here we have an increased opportunity to develop more ability to love it, to be one with reality. In short, the individual Practitioner benefits as a result of greater self awareness, which can then be transformed into any aspect of life that one wishes to enrich. You are more you but with less ego to separate you from what really matters. Have a Great Experience and May the Life Force be with you.
