The Beginning of My “Healer” Journey
From my earliest years, there was always the inner urge to help others. And that urge was commanding and at times demanding. When dishes needed to be washed, the floor needed to be mopped, my mother needed help doing the laundry or peeling apples for her much loved apple pies, I felt responsible, and most of the time happily so, to show up and help.
From Commanding to Demanding
With the advent of the teen years, the urge became more demanding as I much preferred to be with friends gossiping about boys, playing with makeup, and going to movies and concerts. In the culture of my youth, the professional avenues open to young women lay in helping others: teaching and nursing. So while I chose teaching, the urge to help revealed itself as a calling to a deeper dedication, a spiritual dedication: the religious life. I tried to ignore that calling but the urge became demanding and I became anxious. I had to say yes in order to be at peace.
From Demanding to a More Refined Commanding
And for a number of years, I was at peace living a life of seclusion, sacrifice, and intense reflection. My life, I understood, was the epitome of helping people. I was definitely, I felt, answering the call to help others. Somehow though, I also felt that I needed to expand my understanding of what it means to help others. Further education, travel, and experiences with a variety of cultures broadened my horizons, fed my spirit more fully, and led me to explore more freely this urge to be of help. I began to realize that helping others had a multitude of forms and that every new day presented an inexhaustible variety of ways and that no one way was necessarily more exalted than any other. The urge to help more naturally evolved into a commanding way of life which I comfortably embraced.
The Merging of Ideal and Practical
I had always been idealistic, wanting to seek the best and to be the best for myself and for others. But I also had a down to earth practical side. While the first decades of my life focused on the idealistic, I came to appreciate that my ideals and urge to help others could be more immediately and satisfactorily realized by embracing the practical opportunities right before me. All around me people were hurting. I saw that during my years of formal teaching and did what I could to help. But I wanted to do more to relieve others of their emotional and physical pain. That urge led me to explore alternative approaches to healing. The modality that resonated with my scientific and results oriented inclinations was the ancient Chinese scientific approach to all around health: Qigong.
The Way of Qigong: A Five Thousand Year Seasoned History and Science
Qigong has a five thousand year history and has been refined into a clearly and sharply focused methodology/protocol based on the laws of nature. It is unlike Western medicine which traditionally saw and continues to see for the most part human health divided into three separate areas: the physical body addressed by medical doctors, the mind by psychological professionals and psychiatrists, and the spirit by religious leaders/pastors/rabbis/ ministers/immans etc. Qigong sees those three areas as intertwined, as an indivisible unit. A problem in the physical can be traced most of the time to a problem in the emotional/mental, or spiritual aspect of the individual and is treated accordingly. Every part of the body/mind/spirit is related to every other part.
A student of Qigong learns to scan the body to find where there are energy blockages, to release those blockages, and to perform certain movements to prevent those blockages from occurring and/or from recurring. The smooth flow of unobstructed energy is the goal of Qigong, a goal that follows the laws of nature. The ancient Chinese masters discovered that all of the universe is comprised of energy which can neither be created or destroyed but that can change form. An example of the latter can be observed in one form of energy: water. When water is exposed to extreme cold, it changes to ice or snow. When it is exposed to extreme heat, it changes to steam/vapor.
How Qigong Helps Heal
The energy practitioner learns to break open blockages, release compacted energy and thus restore the organ/body area into its natural state or balance. And all of this is accomplished
without touching the body. Since distance and time do not exist, one can do remote healing just as if the person were immediately present. While this principle of physics was known to Chinese centuries ago, it was Einstein who formulated it for the Western world in the middle of the 20th century.
I studied Qigong, saw that it worked, and became not only a practitioner but also a “healer.”
I loved doing the healing. I was not only able to help others, I helped myself greatly to restore balance to my own body/mind/spirit.
The Grace of The Trivedi Effect
After a number of years working with Qigong, I came across Guruji Mahendra Trivedi who is able to help plants, animals, and crops just with his thoughts. His gift has been tested and validated by rigorous science laboratory work. I joined his healing masters program a number of years ago. Now my work done with thought intention has also been tested by laboratory science and validated. The energy which Mr. Trivedi has been gifted with by the Creator is the pure energy of nature enhanced by the energy of the Limitless Intelligence/the Creator. It is Life Force Energy and called the Trivedi Effect.
Transformation of the “Urge”
That urge to help others which at times in my life was so demanding and marked by anxiety is now transformed into the commanding and calm energy of the Trivedi Effect. I am profoundly grateful for that urge which led me to the Life Force Energy brought to this world by Guruji Mahendra Trivedi.
