Solving energy healing issues

March 29, 2011

I am writing this blog to share and ask for help in solving energy healing issues. I have been doing remote healing with family and friends for over a decade now. I have studied various disciplines and have practiced tetada kalimasada and bodytalk protocols for healing. The healing issues I have handled ranged from fevers to terminal illnesses. Lately, requests have come from families with a member in comatose or in the ICU or in assisted living. I call these final boarding phases and usually will accept as a transmitter of messages and in the event of a final crossing, to assist the living to understand what is transpiring.

I have a sense why i can receive messages from comatose persons but i tell the family that i cannot communicate everything they want to know. i usually receive and transmit but do not conduct q and a sessions with the person. the wonderful thing is that the messages can be validated by another person, either a friend or a relative who receives the same messages. it may not happen simultaneously but in my experience, the person gets the same messages.

how do i do it?  when a request is made, either by text or email, i do the first sensing from a distance – either the person is in cubao, cavite or as far as cagayan de oro. i usually ask for at least three hours to prepare myself if it is urgent but if the family can give me three days, better. my name is given to the person in need and i request for permission to scan her/his conditions, eg. like the protocol of bodytalk system asking for innate wisdom. when i get at least 3 items that provides the ID it is coming from the person, i accept the service. the mode of communication is meditative and i focus on what the person wants. i ask for a family member with a mobil fone to be accessible so she/he can observe anything i need to validate, if the person’s head is warm, if her lips are parched, if the person’s hand moves as i scan. then i transmit the messages and for as long as i can attend to the person, am on call.  when the person ask for a face to face visit, i accept only if the distance is within a day’s travel. otherwise, i can still do it from any location. the longest is for a month but not longer than 40 days. the whole service also can start from the final hour to the internment. but i avoid being in the ICU or in the chapel when family starts to grieve. i respect this sacred moment and rarely do i want to be present when the doctor announces the medical moment that the person is dead. it is enough that the family believes their loved one has crossed over serenely and that i was of help in that matter.

the problem i have now is accepting more than one ER call. this march, i accepted six ER calls  from friends and last night, my blood pressure went down to 70/50. i was so tired and went to bed after lunch. after  tapping my cortices and heart, taking water and hydrating myself, my bp still was dangerously low. i already texted Ed and wrote on my FB wall in case i lose consciousness. i did my breathing ala duduk nafas and prayed i wake up alive and well.

lui  manansala wrote on my  FB wall to clean myself of all the toxic energies with salt and i thank her for that. everyone told me to take a rest but my problem is that there are still two friends in their fragile condition. if i close the channels  – i also dont know if i close it well since i still get the message), i would be abandoning them and my consciousness will bother me. also, can one take only one client at a time? what is the optimum number of clients for healing from a distance? what should i refuse to take on?

so friends, help me design a better healing regimen. for those who dont know me, am a trained psychologist and educator  for 3 decades. these healing services are pro bono even if i call the persons in need as ‘clients ‘.  i have done it because of empathy and compassion. i do not advertise my services and wouldnt write about it the way i do now.  but  going online  helps because  i need help.


How to take care of a parent suffering from stroke

March 21, 2011

Last week was my first intensive lesson on caring for a parent, my father Cesar  who was suffering from stroke. In all his 87 years, my father  never had a major brain issue until a stroke  last march 13. He and my mother was on their way to Mass when his shoe fell and he couldnt move. My siblings in Lucena brought him instantly to a hospital and galvanized the professionals in Mt. Carmel hospital to diagnose my father’s conditions. On that sunday morning, my sister Ceres, a doctor, consulted with three doctors : a neurologist, a cardiologist and an infectious disease specialist. The findings indicated he has a stroke in the right brain and has pneumonia. Had my father been a poor farmer who lived in a far flung barrio, he would have ended dead. It takes prompt action and resources to get the right medical action. Of course, it helped that my father was conscious and could tell the doctors what was happening to him, that there were no sensations on his left arm, left leg and had a hard time swallowing.

The right brain that is affected is the cerebellum which controls the voluntary motion of the left part of the body. Note that when a stroke is scanned, I learned that it does not always indicate the stroke impact on all the nerves of the body. When I finally got to see my father on Wednesday, he had already regained some sensations but still was incapable of rising from the bed and cannot even flick his left wrist.

There are movements that reveal how far the brain is suffering from a stroke and the neurologist explained that helping a person regain movement from every joint, ankle, knee, elbow are crucial so that the stroke doesn’t progress. That is an important lesson in strokes – tell your brain to link to the parts that is losing sensation, or lift whatever you can – wiggle fingers, wiggle toes, raise your arm, make faces, move. I did my bodytalk practice on my father twice a day – tapping his head and heart, linking the right side to the left side which is called reciprocals to energize him, and hydrating him. My father had to drink from a straw slowly so that he wouldnt  gag. He could barely eat but eat he did with all the gentle persuasion. He always asked for his favorite drink  food –  coffee, soda and chocolates.

Second tip, we  did the daily answer and question exercises ” What is your name? Who is your beloved? How many children do you have, name them according to order ? who are your parents?” It is important that a stroke doesnt make mental faculties deteriorate and so every conversation is a healing session. My father never lost his sense of  humour, whenever the nurses would ask him ” what is your name, he would reply “Cesar Araneta Villariba”. When other questions  would exact more sentences from him, “The usual.” was his answer.

Third tip, one needs to know what is happening around him and so every visitor who came had to be in joyful mood.

We smuggled a bright apo, TJ, who talks of the current news in Japan like a BBC newscaster and he is just 5 years old ! Children below 7 years old are not allowed to visit.  Also we took time to make all the nurses fed with sweets and magazines  and the rehab team with pizza so that they would look after our father as their own parent. Our nursing workforce are dedicated but overworked and underpaid. I am impressed with their diligence and the night nurses are tops. I myself couldnt do those 12 hour night shifts with a smile. my mother Nene,  80 years old, had to be brought to the ER by the 5th night due to stress and fatigue. am glad she didnt get a heart attack as i never prayed that hard in my whole life while tests were conducted on her. My parents are both one octogenarians and their love has spanned 6 decades which is the most precious healing item in my father’s recovery. I told Ed that my mother and father didnt want a single hour  of separation, they were always holding each other.

So after 6 days, we got our father back at home where everyone can care for him with tender loving care.

We are all thankful for the prayers from New York to Liverpool, from the Carmelite nuns to the Discalced Carmelites lay sisters and brothers, from our relatives and classmates, academic and social colleagues and even Facebook friends of friends. Maraming salamat po. It takes various praying communities to get someone like my father recovering in a week. We hope this community will also pray for the Japanese people and those suffering from the wars in the Arab world. Amen.

Being Sixty and Sassy

March 6, 2011

Today think of the 100th year of women’s liberation and share a story. Why ? More than a billion women are not quite liberated but can enjoy some freedom. With an audacious attitude similar to that of the heroines of the turn of the century, women can plan revolutions, in small and big ways.

Yesterday, Ed and I went to have dinner with a dreamer-storyteller. She has been planning for 20 years to access a fund that will make poverty history, at least that is my take on her stories and the reason I listen.

After listening to her story and finishing a delicious japanese dish of tofu and salmon, I went on to a thread of planning my own story. I wish to start regreening and “revegitating “mountains. There is Mt. Boso Boso in Antipolo yearning for trees to save the watershed serving metropolitan Manila. There is Mt. Pinatubo which the Aeta communities are revitalizing to save Central Luzon from further impoverishment.
I asked Ed “If we have a 100 million pesos this year, can we reforest and plant rice on 15,000 hectares?” “Ed replied ” If the communities are organized and empowered.”

I immediately tapped my cortices/heart and imagined sixty people’s organizations going up the two mountains and planting rice, root crops, vegetables and fruit trees. I also started (in my head and heart )seeing a thousand women writing emails, blogging and sending sms to many volunteers all over Luzon to help organize schedules of teaming up with the Aetas and Dumagats. Suddenly the tools and directories in WordPress, Facebook, Yahoo, Gmail and the websites these women create will compete for attention. Maybe, just maybe we will reach a million more women and men every month and the buzz for regreening will be like waves of human hands tilling the soil, planting,watering mountains. Is this all possible?
Today, I believe so. Wombs create life. With all the life inside us women, let’s do it. Mabuhay tayong lahat!
