I have always strived to become the best healer that I could ever become. That path has never been a straight path to me, but an exciting path of exploration and learning.
I started reading the book Awakening The Luminous Mind by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche. Some of you may remember that I have in the past recommended his fantastic book The Tibetan Yogas Of Dream and Sleep.
This book is simple yet profound. In a way I already knew, yet I haven’t truly been practicing it or to see it as clearly as Tezin explains in his book.
Healing is really remembrance. We are the light, we are the love that we seek. It’s all underneath the fear and the anxiety or anger or sadness or whatever it is that makes us feel less than happy. All that stuff lies on top of the light that you are.
As you heal, you open to the true light within. You let go of the fears and the limitations that blocks your light from within.
This method that Tenzin explains in the book is to continuously look for the space within EVERYTHING. As you do, the thing that you felt will just fall apart. It will stop existing. Just like that.
When we look for the space within everything, we immediately access the infinite, the formless. The Divine.
The practice in itself is beyond the mind, there’s no mental process. It’s just looking for the space within. Within everything.
Its so simple yet beyond powerful. It takes me out of the picture, it takes everything out and there’s a great surrender. A great letting go and allowing to own up, to whatever it Is at that moment. As you do you stop resisting life. You stop resisting everything because if you continuously look for the space within you will find that nothing is ever permanent. Not within and not without.
I can’t recommend this method enough for empaths and highly sensitive people. The resistance to feeling is what keeps us stuck, when you let go of the resistance you soften so that the light can enter and thats where the healing begins.
In my practice I've almost always used to focus my energy as an arrow. Punctuating whatever I was working on, sort of penetrating it to its core. Whereas I find with this method that instead of reaching out towards what I’m working with, I’m instead opening up. I’m not reaching for anything anymore because what’s to reach for? Space??
So instead it feels as if I’m opening up like the sun and I’m inviting everything in, whatever it may be to be seen and felt and within that space I’m looking for the space within all of that. The true pure light that’s the infinite eternal, that’s always always there.. so there’s very little doing, a lot of receiving and being within what is. A much much more feminine and relaxed method.
Does that make sense?
Please try it out, it’s so simple yet so very very efficient and powerful.
So Much Love,
