Using Compassion and Love to H.E.A.L. Heal Earth And Life.

Using Compassion and Love to H.E.A.L. Heal Earth And Life.

This is a story I wrote several years ago while living on a farm in Chile it shows how deep is our love for all things called life. I will be out of touch for awhile heading to the Smokey Mountains to help build a little healing community and I wanted to leave you a gift and this was the best gift I could feel would say what it is I want for all of us, a world filled with compassion and love in both life and death. I was spending lots of time in a Buddhist center near the farm and teaching one of my first classes on Quantum Polarity in the O boards at this time and I feel the teachings I received from both of these events reflect in this story. 

"This month’s healing brought me thoughts of compassion and healing for those who wage war and for those who are victims of those who wage war. (How appropriate in light of the rampage of killing in Afghanistan) During my meditation several times I thought about the River of Life and trying to stay in the middle of these two powerful polarized energies so that I could use my balance to send healing energy to both. We finished and spent some time healing each other with group reiki sessions and I left feeling at peace. 

When we returned to Florencia's farm we found that neighbor’s dogs had attacked several of the llamas she is raising. They had killed a beautiful pure white llama and had attacked two others. One who could not stand had dragged itself across the field it´s rearend torn to shreds. The third had escaped with several large bites in its rear legs. 

I can’t put into words the pain I felt looking at the carnage. We went to work on the one who could not walk, wrapping her in a rug to warm her, while I built a lean to tent to protect her from the rain. It was impossible to move her so we tried to make her as comfortable as possible. I ran energy into her and felt her weeping soul, scared and confused as to why these animals had waged war on her and her family. I told her I was there for her and would do what I could to help her make it though this one way or another. 

I cry as I write this because my heart breaks for the tragedies in life and I know there are so many tragedies happening all over the world but tragedies no matter their size, where they are or who they effect do not change the essence that is me at my core. I stay true to my point of conception and find strength in my belief that it is better for me to have an effect on the tragedies than for the tragedies to change who I am. 

I was deeply affected by the healing meditation I had done at the Buddhist center today and I was deeply affected by the anger I felt over this ruthless attack. These two opposites existed in one space and time. As difficult as it was to make sense of them existing side by side, in the same day, I found I could use one against the other to keep me at Zero point, in that place of Quantum Polarity, where I could see that the essence of my strength was the strength of my essence. The me at conception, where the circumstances outside of me could not change the person I saw and felt to be deep inside of me. 

I am sure I will paddle back and forth in the river over the next few days, but knowing that the center is where I want to be, will I know keep me closer to it and there I will find the peace that lives in my soul. 

I went to bed alone, shivering and full of sadness, feeling my grief as it filled me, while I also let the healing energy from the Buddha’s birthday celebration, the One World Healing session we had done and the Celestine Prayer Group meeting, fill me as lay there, these were all about how can we personally cope with suffering in our own lives and what do the wisdom traditions tell us about staying upbeat and positive in a world with natural challenges, thinking of them filled me with hope for a better tomorrow. I was now floating in the calm, clear, silently deep waters of the center of the river of life and there I found peace and I cried and slept like a baby. 

I woke rested and more determined than ever to continue my exploration of this thing called Quantum Polarity. This is new territory I am traveling and it has stretched me and forced me to go deeper. It has lifted my soul and carried my spirit. It has also helped me understand why I had resently been given my new Buddhist name and I now wear it with pride for I am Nuela Chogyal, ¨King of the Road of the Medicine Buddha¨ and on that road I H.E.A.L. Heal Earth And Life. I am so happy to be traveling that road with all of you and hope you can feel the healing energy I am sending you daily. 

Now I must go attend a funeral of a good animal friend and use my healing gift from God to help another find her way to the center of the river and the home of her essence because that is what I do. 

I Hope that if you cry for me and this situation, you will also smile for me and feel the peace and balance that is there at Zero Point, Quantum Polarity, that point that is in the center of all of us, where Gods love fills us with hope. 
God Bless You All! 

Lesson 4 A Gift From God 

I returned to Florencia's farm to help bury our friend and to I hope continue treatment of the other llama that was injured. As we walk through the field Florencia told me of a dream she had that night, about the injured llama, in it he turned into a very beautiful young man, he was sitting in a meditation pose as if in a trance and though his body carried all the injuries of the llama he seemed to not be suffering. She said he then became completely illuminated, opened his eyes and smiled at her. She said she had felt such peace in his smile. I smiled thinking how all along I had thought the llama was a beautiful woman. 

We were both expecting to find our friend passed on, for yesterday the vet had said there was nothing could be done to save him and that he would pass very soon, when they had turned him over the extent of his injuries were much worse than we had thought, a large part of his body was missing torn away by the dogs in the attack. Being a devote Buddhist Florencia could not put him down, so they had decided to let him pass in the night naturally while resting under the tent I had built for him. 

As we approached we saw that he was holding his head high and seemed to be staring into space as if in a trance. He laid his head on the ground as we approached. Florencia could not believe he was still alive. I felt it was because he was only three years old and still holding strongly to life. We ran some Reiki on him to help ease his suffering. He seemed so calm and as if he were accepting his condition and not struggling against it. I knew if we were going to get the other llama buried today we had better get started so we left him resting and went to find his brother, the other llama that had died. 

We spent several hours, just the two of us, digging the grave as a cold rain fell. The task did not seem difficult and time passed rapidly. We finished by putting a headstone on his grave, some flowers and both I and Florencia decided to leave him a little gift she planted a mushroom on his grave and I put a big footprint on top and filled it with green plants. 

We returned to our gallant friend who was now clearly suffering and breathing heavy. We sat on each side of him and laid our hands on his head. We started praying the mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum" over and over we chanted. This is said to help one in passing over. I then began running Chi energy into him and ask him why he would not let go. He responded very clearly, " I want to see my mother before I go" I knew his mother was in another pasture and it would take hours to round her up and bring her here and I did not believe we had that kind of time. So I prayed to my old traveling Shaman friend and spirit guide and ask him what I should do. He said to me, "You Are His Mother" I took a deep breath, pulling all the colors of my Chakra into it and pushed this energy out though my hands as I said, “Son I am here, I have come to visit you before you go and to tell you that I love you very very much. As I said this the llama let out a big sigh and lifted his head a bit. I then reached deep and prayed to God "God I have not asked you for much in my life time but I pray to you now please come and take my son home with you. As I finished this prayer the llama took one last big breath, opened his eyes and smiled as he passed over. Both Florencia and I had the feeling that his spirit was being lifted upward by Angels and at that moment a large flock of golden birds passed just overhead sounding as if they were singing as they headed for the river. 

I knew in those last moments when the llama was in the most extreme discomfort possible, he was also feeling his ultimate joy and bliss and I knew he had found his way to the center of the river of life and to the inner peace that was there for him. I watched him as he drifted by and I saw him as he found the rainbow bridge to the other side and as God and all his Angels walked with him over that bridge to the garden of Eve and I thought, we are all truly Children Of His Rainbow World. I began sobbing deeply affected by his passing, while overwhelmed with the joy of being a child of such a compassionate God I too had found the center of the River of Life. 

Now class here is the real Lesson I wish to pass on to you. Listen closely and look inside yourself and there you will find the gift I wish to give you on this day of celebration. For today was a day of death and passing and it is also a day of birth and new beginnings because today is my actual birthday. Today I have been given the greatest gift possible from my maker, a real lesson in living and dying and living life at Zero point."

I love you for reading this and hope you will find your compassion and love for everything that is us as ONE energy in life and death!

Peace, Love and understanding that touching everything and attaching nothing but love brings Deep lasting Healing.

In the eyes of a new born child!

I wrote this when my first Grand Baby was born and now after spending the weekend with all 5 of my grand babies I realize life is just ONE big giant circle and we get the pleasure of spending time with the ONEs we love over and over again. We just have to look in their eyes and there we will see ourselves!

In the Eyes of a Newborn Child

I have been a Reiki master for several years and have also expanded my healing gift into Color, Energy and Aura healing.  I feel truly blessed to have met the wonderful people who also follow this path.  I am a North American living full time in southern Chile.  In South America in general there are thousands and thousands of Reiki masters and this number is multiplying every day.
I love the closeness to the holy sprit I feel in my healings and meditations and look forward to the calmness that comes from that contact.  As I believe most Reiki masters do I start my daily healings and meditation with sending cleansing energy to the one true Mother of us all Mother Earth.  I then give my daily healing energy to the great profits of the world as a small token of my appreciation for the kindness and love they spread to all.  Then I offer my energy to the one true sprit and creator of all that is and I ask him/her to multiply this healing energy 1000 times and to send it throughout the world to all of the young children in need of healing and love.  I always feel the laughter of the children as it passes over their heads and they reach up and absorb it through their fingertips.  This image is always the highlight of my day and I cannot help but laugh with them.  Then I open up my energy to whoever is in need of it. About a year ago a small child’s spirit slipped in and ask for me to give her some energy, this sprit felt so familiar and I knew it was from a very close soul. 
Later that day my sprit guide Geronimo said I must call my Daughter and so I did.  She was so excited I had called and said her and her boyfriend had just come from the doctor and they were going to have a child.  I knew right then who my visitor was and I smiled.  Every day for the next seven months little Tagan showed up first in line for my daily healing.  She was so full of good thoughts and positive energy it was always such a pleasure to have her visit. I knew I must return to the U.S. to be present for the birth of my first grandchild. 
I have to tell you a little side story, my father for 45 the years of my life that he was on this earth was my best friend and though he had seven other children I always felt like I was his favorite, I found out at his funeral that I was not alone, all of my brothers and sisters felt like he had loved them best and spent most of his life pleasing and loving them more than the other seven siblings, that should give you a glimpse of what a great soul this man was.  He spread such happiness and kindness wherever he went. In my daily visits with the little sprit of Tagan I felt his presence. 
            As my plane landed in Southern California I sensed something was very wrong.  The look on my daughters face only made me feel the situation was even graver than I had felt.  “What’s wrong?” I said as I hugged her and she started to cry, “we had a very serious head on accident two days ago and it totaled our new car. Thank god we were not hurt badly but they were very worried about the baby. She is due in two weeks. They had to give her shock treatment to make sure she was ok. She was moving and they think she will be alright but I am so worried about her.”  I could only hold her and pray that all was going to be ok.  “Lets go home.” I said.
Once back at their home I ask my daughter Brianna if I could give her and the baby a Reiki treatment, she was comforted by that and it was clear wanted some help in knowing what was going on with the baby. I started my healing with Brianna and could feel the trauma in her arms and upper body from the jolt she had taken from putting her arms out in the accident.  I then moved to Tagan and my hands instantly froze and I began to shake uncontrollably. I have never felt that kind of deep, deep cold before.  I realized it was Tagan that was shaking and I focused all my energy to warming my hands, then she spoke very clearly to me, “Is my mommy OK? Is my daddy OK? Are they hurt?  I am Ok, but I am really scared. Help me please.” I told my daughter what the child had said and asked her to please tell her she is fine and her father is fine and to spend as much time as she could over the next day reassuring Tagan that they are OK and only worried about her. The next day I did another treatment and the energy was so much calmer and warmer I could tell they were going to be fine. 
I then asked the baby’s father if he would like a treatment, he had been watching me and I could tell was a little apprehensive about it all.  He said he would like one because his neck had been severely hurt and would welcome anything that might help alleviate the pain. Brianna sat in the chair next to the couch I was treating him on.  I could feel he was in a lot of pain and as I started my treatment I heard Tagan say to me very clearly. “Let me help.” I thought wow that would really be one young Reiki master. I reached out my hand to my daughters belly and received and instant jolt of intense energy.  I pointed my other hand at her father who was lying there with his eyes closed.  He immediately said  “wow I can really feel the heat on my neck and it feel so good, thank you.”  I said “don’t thank me thank your daughter” he opened his eyes to see my hand on Brianna’s belly and he smiled. The warmth we all felt was so calming, we sat for a long time and let Tagan heal, her father, her mother and most of all herself. 
We entered the hospital about 10pm several days later, when it became clear that it was going to be a while before they would deliver I sent everyone home with the promise I would call them if anything started to happen.  I assumed a meditation pose in the hall outside their room and started my usual routine.  When I came to the open healing Tagan slipped in, as usual she was first and ready for some good energy, however she brought with her the contractions she must have been feeling. They were not painful however they were strong and I could feel them come and go, I started to use a deep breathing technique I had been working on and soon I had a very comfortable rhythm. I could feel Tagan resting in my hands and I feel into a deep meditation.  For almost two hours I sat there calmly taking the contractions as they passed through me. I opened my eyes to the presence of a nurse standing over me.  “I’m sorry I bothered you, you were meditating, its funny but your daughter has been in a deep sleep for the last two hours and though the monitors show she has been having very strong contractions with no medication she continues to sleep through them. I have worked here for many years and have never seen that.”  
Morning came and everyone returned to the hospital, Brandon said the contractions were getting closer and they expected the baby any time. Several hours passed and then I felt a rush of energy pass through me and I new Tagan was here.  Minuets later Tagan’s Father came out to tell us she had been born and Brianna and her were fine.  I realized at that moment that it was my father’s birthday and I thought wow is that cool or what; Tagan was born on the same day as my father.  I entered the birth room and looking directly at me in the eyes of this new born child where the eyes of my father, I felt his love coming from this special new little soul and I knew she was a very old soul and I felt deeply healed.

Love Peace and Understanding

Thank you for reading this and I hope your life is filled with great passing's of old souls you have missed in you life that show up just when you need them to!

Little Tagan 

 Tagan on right and all my other soul traveling friends
