Writing lasts for ever ... maybe

Image
Shredding is a simple enough task. You drop old birthday cards, letters, journals, receipts into a shredder and instantly the past is gone -- not exactly. Until a few days ago, I never considered shredding a spiritual practice, but this simple 'project' shook me into a deeper state of awareness and understanding about karma.

Twenty years of journals with beautiful, handcrafted, one-of-a-kind covers, tied with silk ribbons, meticulously wrapped in tissue paper, and lovingly placed in individual boxes, sat quietly and patiently perched on a shelf for years. I would look at them and think "one day I need to do something with those journals."

A few days ago, the time came to bring the journals down. Out came the pages and floated into the shredder. Suddenly, my sense of relief turned to horror as my spiritual teacher's profound wisdom about karma hit me. Those beautiful journals that outwardly promise beautiful, flowery words, poetry, whimsical musings, day dreams a…

Still There is Hope

Image
I want you to know that there is hope. Pain levels can come down and you can have a life beyond your imagination. It is hard to hold on to hope when your body screams in pain. Hope can be elusive when the sadness camouflages as never-ending sorrow, or the blues turn into seemingly endless streams of darkness, or the thoughts are unrelenting, cruel, and destructive. 

Still there is hope. 

For you and me and every one of us, there is hope for a life beyond anything we can imagine. I know because I'm living it every day and I know others like me. As a child, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual pain were the norm. Happiness was something so foreign to me I needed an instruction manual or at least an interpreter. This kind of pain drives many people to do unspeakable things, often involving drugs and alcohol, but also every aspect of life, such as money, food, entertainment, sports, fitness, work, etc. The list is endless. 

Those who know this kind of pain, know the cry deep in thei…

If the Pain Returns, Transform It!

Image
You've probably read my recent posts about the amazing transformation that occurred for me the week of January 21st 2018 when Master Sha gave me several Tao Calligraphy Golden Light Ball blessings. Pain levels that would climb over a 10, suddenly dissipated and I started waking up completely pain-free. I could walk, stand, and sit without any pain.

On January 31st, during the Lunar Eclipse/Blue Moon, low levels of pain and inflammation returned. My initial thought was "on no!" My second thought was "Do a Forgiveness Practice!" Instantly, my heart filled to overflowing with immense gratitude towards Master Sha, Heaven and all souls for giving me back my life. What a gift!!

The return of low levels of pain means I have more spiritual blockages to clear and my body is in fact healing, as you will read below. Please know that I still wake up pain-free every day, but during the day, I sometimes experience low levels of pain. That pain is concentrated in my lower abd…

Dinner, a Walk, and Golden Light Balls ...

Image
The suggestion of dinner and a walk would have been met by a feeling of total dismay one week ago. At that time, I ate all my meals standing up, and walking was a painful necessity I avoided until it was absolutely essential. But Saturday night I joined my sister and her partner for dinner at a restaurant; then walked through one of San Francisco's neighborhoods window shopping and chatting for another hour!

It's hard for me to believe that I can do these things. I still awaken and ever so gently check to see if I can move. Where is the pain today? How strong is it? These are the first questions of the day. But there is no pain. I have awakened pain-free for eight days in a row! My body can move freely. I can stretch, roll on my side, and walk with incredible ease. The big heavy metal ball in my lower abdomen with spikes poking me in every direction has just simply vanished. 

My sister could not believe it. "Where were you in Canada? How long were you there? When did this…

Today I Walked Two Miles!

Image
In recent months, walking a few steps has been painful at best, and excruciating at times, but today I walked two miles with ease, except for a couple of short indoor breaks from the bone-chilling cold in Toronto, Canada. 

Yesterday, I walked a little less than a mile when I ran into two wonderful friends. One of them could not believe I was walking down the street carrying dinner! Both had seen me the day before and could not believe the change. 

I can't believe the change. For months, I would awaken slowly moving my body, waiting for the acute pain, dull pain, stinging numbness, stiffness, headache, dizziness, heaviness, and more to take hold. How much mobility will I have today? How much will I be able to do before my day comes to an abrupt halt due to the pain? How much clarity will I have today, or will the day be lost to blurriness and fatigue from the pain? 

Through the love and grace of Dr and Master Zhi Gang Sha, 90% of the pain is gone. That pain disappeared after receiving…

Healing is a Journey that Starts When You Choose ...

Image
Healing is a journey. It starts the moment you choose to live. Many of us think that it starts when we find the right doctor, prescription, protocol, supplements, etc. This week, I learned that all of those things could be in place but until you make a decision deep in your heart to live, you are existing in a sort of limbo characterized by pain and suffering. 

I choose to live. This has never been so clear in my soul, heart, mind and body as now. 

I choose to live to help my beloved spiritual teacher, Master Sha, in whatever small way I can to accomplish the tasks he's been given in this lifetime.

I choose to live to help others awaken and bring an end to their suffering. 

I choose to live to help create a world of love, peace and harmony.  

Earlier this week, results from x-rays and an MRI left me overwhelmed, saddened, and grieving. As happens with sickness, everything changes moment by moment. Love and support came from friends and loved ones. Instantly, I felt my heart…

Tao Miracle Healing™ Series: Tao Calligraphy Book Circle & Recovery After Brain Tumor Surgery

Image
A year ago, my sister, who had personally experienced the power of the Tao Calligraphy healing circle, asked if it could help a very good friend recover from brain tumor surgery. "Absolutely!" I replied. Hopeful that this would help her friend, my sister set up a Tao Calligraphy healing circle with ten of Dr. and Master Sha's Soul Healing Miracles books for her friend. Seven months later in March 2015, she emailed the following update.

SC was diagnosed with her second brain tumor (she had her first removed 10 years ago as well as an aneurysm). She had surgery in June 2013 to remove the tumor (or mass that had grown in the cavity left by the first tumor). This time, however, she lost feeling on her right side and was told that she should apply for disability and would not be able to return to work. 

She was not able to do anything with her right arm/hand and could walk very slow. She could not eat with her right hand; she had a lot of difficulty. She d…
