Coming Back! In retreat with Master Mingtong

  • Edit

A Retreat Experience at the Omega Institute, Rhinebeck, NY, by Zayne Marston

Introduction

 To my amazement, I turned 65 in September. As a gift, I attended five days of Wisdom Healing Qigong with our joyful and inspiring teacher, healer and qigong master Mingtong Gu at the beautiful, accommodating campus of Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY (Sept 19-23).

Two of my qigong students joined me! It was exciting to share the chi experience and to know that the transmissions will enrich the chi field back home in Western MA where we practice Wisdom Healing Qigong.

Teaching assistants, Luisa de Castro and Suan Armstrong from Connecticut helped support the program. Many thanks for their gracious presence and attention to our needs.

Auspiciously, the Autumnal Equinox crept in halfway through the retreat and ushered in the energy of change and seasonal shift. The interplay of sunlight and the emerging leaf colors cast a magical shimmer to the atmosphere.

Change and transformation were definitely afoot as the days progressed. Here are some reflections.

Remembering Arline

Remembering our friend
Arline Smeal
August 1, 1937-September 1, 2016
forever in the rainbow light

Pink Roses, by Arline Smeal. Copyright 2012

Last Thursday, our beloved Arline Smeal made her transition to the Rainbow Light. The Tibetan assures us that he "carried her home, and that while her transition (please use care when clicking this link) is perhaps difficult to understand or comprehend, it was in Divine Order, her work was done. She was fully embraced by the Light and presence of God, and All is Well. "

Arline is remembered both by neighbors and friends in her building and by ourselves as a loving, caring, compassionate being, who extended that care to all she encountered.

We honor  her humor, her joy, her spirit and her extreme dedication to the School and the teachings of Moriah and the Tibetan over many years.   There is so much to say about Arline and we invite you to share your thoughts and memories on our website memorial page, or on Facebook. 

Arline, we will miss you, your loving spirit, your joy, enthusiasm and supreme dedication to your Path. Thank you for being a teacher, friend, guide, cheerleader, healer, emissary of the light, and companion with us. We send you buckets and buckets of RAINBOW LIGHT! RAINBOW LIGHT! RAINBOW LIGHT!  


           Arline offers rainbow light energy healing. 

May you find a beautiful peace in your eternal connection with Yanim, DK, the Tibetan and all of your Arcturian and Celestial friends, loved ones and guides.  Say hi to Moriah for us. 
We miss you already. 

Love always, 
your transformational times family.

Emotional Healing Sound Qigong
the inner alchemy of emotional transformation
by Zayne Marston

Stay close to any sounds that make you glad you are alive ~ Hafiz

Evolutionary tool and life raft for the turbulence of today

It’s hard to keep a good thing secret. I am moved to share about a powerful qigong ( chi kung, means energy practice) I’ve been learning called Five Organ Integrative Sound Healing Method; a practice of a system called Wisdom Healing (Zhineng) Qigong.  This magical practice is easy and flexible to perform and highly effective at dissolving energy blocks caused by chronic, limiting emotions.

What it would be like to have a self-healing tool that can help transform the roller coaster ride of emotions spawned from the past into a refined state of being that is positive, life affirming, and more reflective of our true nature?

Sound Healing Qigong uses the voice of sound, consciousness and feeling to make contact with and to deeply receive source energy that’s all around us—the Creative Force of Healing Light, in different language, the Holy Spirit —unseen by the naked eye, yet animating and permeating all life, within and without. Through vibration and focused intention, the sounds voiced by the practitioner neutralize discordant energy moving through the organs, which our brains perceive as emotion.

Personally, this rare and unique qigong has helped me with grief in particular—getting me through the dark night—having lost my beloved wife a year ago.  Through daily qigong practice and my willingness to embrace all feelings and face the dark night, I am transforming on many levels.

Anxiety, fear and heavy sorrow that sprang from my loss no longer plague me as they did. An effervescent joy, a love, a spring to my spirit, are bubbling up out of someplace deep inside me to fill the vacuum. What happened?

MESSAGE FROM ZAYNE

It’s hard to believe that January is over. It has been over 10 months since Moriah, our beloved Guiding Light, returned home to the ecstatic realm of the Masters. This period, truly a passage into the dark night of my soul and for many others, has been a time of deep stillness and reflection. It has thrust me into the catacombs and canyons of my being that I never knew existed. I had to face them head-on and feel it all. No getting around it. Quite frankly, there were times I thought I would just die. I must confess, at times I prayed that it would happen.

But I touched a light of joy so bright at the bottom of the well and it seems to grow and glow a little bit more each day despite life challenges. This process has catalyzed a renewed sense of purpose, a central organizing principle that has rearranged my state of mind and life perspective. Like pushing the cosmic reset button. Evolutionary. At this point I can see the hidden blessing in Moriah’s passing in that I would never have been able to access these dark and buried places to transform and purify them through awareness, feeling, acceptance, trust and compassion.

What is your dark night of the soul? How has it impacted your life? Has it served as an evolutionary tool for you? If so, how? These questions and many more will be explored in an intimate, group setting Saturday, FEBRUARY 13 at the School of the Golden Discs.  We hope this event will set the stage for further exploration of the Dark Night through weekly phone conferencing, which will begin in mid-February. Stay tuned for more information about this program.

We will start the Sunday seminar with Five-Organ Sound Healing Qigong, taught by Zayne. Using the voice of sound and mind intent, negative emotional energy is rapidly repatterned into virtuous powers housed within each organ system that helps us return to our natural state of being.

The bulk of the program will focus on group exploration and sharing in finding Light in the Dark Night, which allows the group synergy to work its magic. We will finish with a shamanic journey led by Nancela Howe then commune together with a potluck meal. Hope you can attend!

Is there any permanence? Message from Zayne

Summer is slipping through my fingers at a rapid tempo. I wonder if tempo relates to tempo-rary, because that seems to be the theme of my life these days and for many others--the ephemeral, transient nature of life and all of its fixings.

Facing the permanence of change
Might as well stand and face it, the only permanence is change, as I am forced to discover and yield to the elasticity of my being and trust it enough to meet the turbulent, shifting waters of my existence, murky at times, yet effervescent too. Free will aside, there  is no other choice.

A Taoist sage once said in response the vortexes and roller-coaster-change life brings, I go in with a swirl and out  with a whirl. I follow the way of water and don't think of myself. I have clung to this mantra like a life raft during an initiatory passage of  grief and loss through which I now travel.
 
Another kind of permanence
But there also is another kind of permanence, something we can actually take with us when we leave our precious bodies. Our Soul Essence. Our Essential Self.

 Releasing soul encumbrances
A purpose of the School of the Golden Discs, and the ticket to embracing the New Consciousness that Moriah and the Tibetan have written and taught so much about, (see Making the Shift: A Field Guide to the Emerging Consciousness, Volume 1), had been to release all encumbraces, the trappings, to our glorious Soul.

The Mystery

Chapter excerpt, Soul Searching with Djwhal Khul, the Tibetan by Moriah Marston ©2002

The Tibetan explores the Mystery:

The Mystery is the land of Great Secrets—cosmic puzzle pieces fitting together into the great Matrix that is Creation. To open to the mystery is to have a glimpse at the wonder that is held in the Unknowable. For it is in this Unknowable that all possibilities are held—unformed potentialities of the Divine. When students allow themselves to sit within the mystery, without struggle or defiance, a profound feeling of inner peace emerges. To know nothing is to experience everything.

The universe expresses itself through riddles that carry the Great Mystery like emissaries of the twilight dimension. It is in this dimension, where light merges into dark, that the mystery anchors itself into the human experience. At this profound point of contact with life-not-yet-manifest humankind is transfixed, momentarily released from the web of illusion emerging through the past which projects itself as the known.

The mystery is the gateway to go beyond time and space. It ushers in the eternal. As the student touches the mysterious, all is possible. CLICK READ MORE BELOW

The Evolving Nature of Death and Attachment

Chapter from MAKING THE SHIFT: Field Guide to the Emerging Consciousness by Moriah Marston and the Tibetan

The Tibetan teaches:

It’s time to meet the moment! What does that mean?  Even from the perspective of the Masters, this moment is enormous because it is a Grand Opening. This long-awaited Parting of the Veils requires a tremendous Cosmic Force to unbind the earthly plane from the encrustations that have enshrouded humankind and the earth. The veils that separate the dimensions have prevented humankind from experiencing CONTACT with all other realms of existence beyond the earthly plane.  

Humankind has been so deeply invested in the illusion that it resides alone, cut off from all others in the Universe, that it has forgotten its place in the intergalactic family. In order to integrate multidimensional consciousness, students must release the false belief that the veils—the dimensional membranes—are too thick to penetrate. Humankind believes that the only way to access the other worlds is to transition from the physical plane. It relies on death as the portal of release from the earthly prison of disconnect. Often death comes as a welcome relief from humanity’s existential pain of isolation. 

But death carries a sense of finality which convinces many people that nothing exists beyond the physical world. Most students, assuming that the limitations of the earthly plane are met by the limitations of death, have simply tried to make the best of their life’s experience by resigning themselves to a terribly limited opportunity for growth and soul exploration. The intense grief experienced by humankind includes not only physical loss of loved ones but also a subliminal mournfulness from an acute sense of restricted LOVE and CONNECTION. This emotional pain results from the density, an iron curtain, which has prevented access to the greater picture and the enormous vibration of Cosmic Love penetrating all corners of the Universe...READ MORE AND COMMENT CLICK BELOW

Moriah"s Awakening: A word from the Holy Spirit

Moriah reached enlightenment during the last stage of her life. This was the primary goal in her life—to fully awaken. The strong spiritual energy that emanated from her fading life form thickened the air in the great room where she lay; often smiling despite the intense pain she was in.

Shortly after Moriah’s transition, I hungered for a greater perspective. I wanted desperately to know how she is doing out there in the Great Beyond. What is she up to? Did she truly awaken before “lift off”? So I was graced with a reading from Daniel Neusom, a pastor of the Sacred Light Fellowship in Time Square who happens to be an amazing channel for the Holy Spirit.

I would like to share with you some excerpts from this life changing reading:

Moriah" How is she?

Daniel is perceiving her in her true and real power and glory. Her transition and transformation is complete. She has already begun to teach in the new realm she is in, and has begun the work of helping to train and prepare souls who will be coming to the Earth in the near future for the incarnations they are preparing.

The souls she is working with are coming to end of their need to come to earth and she is helping them to let go and release and open to new frequencies that they are to bring to the earth to their respective lives. 

As you hear this description of her work, you will see that it is very similar to what she did when she was in body.  Her transition was a great joy and release and relief for her. She remained on earth of course for her own process, but also so that her departure would not be so jarring or traumatic for you and others in the community. There was a time of preparation for this, giving you each an opportunity to process the experience in your own way...READ MORE AND COMMENT CLICK BELOW
