How to Respond in This Moment in Time?

“We are no doubt at a very critical point in time. Our world hangs in balance, and a very precarious balance it is. Awakening to Reality is no longer a possibility; it is an imperative. We have sailed the ship of delusion about as far as she can carry us.” – Adyashanti, The Way of Liberation

For many people, the Coronavirus has triggered root chakra fears of safety and security from not only this life, but past lives as well. Many of us as souls have either died from plagues and epidemics in past lives or known of people who have, so it’s no wonder people are struggling.

Additionally, the stay at home order can create an environment that brings to the surface conflicts and issues within familial relationships. Any conflicts that arise in relationships always point to something within ourselves that can be healed, or shifted to a new perspective that doesn’t create conflict. The virus serves as an opportunity to point to that which is ready to be changed or healed not only within ourselves but also collectively as a society. I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing this healing in my office. Recently, I’ve seen three clients who have healed tremendous trauma in their lives, and are now in a place where they are noticing an effortless flow of feelings of love, joy and gratitude in their lives. Now that they have released their traumas, they are more easily able to allow their body/mind system to be a clear vessel for their soul to shine through and express itself. If you’re in a tough space with your emotions, know that it’s possible to feel more peace through healing work.

The virus is also pointing out lessons regarding the healing of society and the earth. For example, as the busy pace of everyday life has slowed down, the dolphins have returned to the canals in Venice, Italy. Air pollution and global CO2 levels, contributors to climate change, have been significantly reduced. People are witnessing clear blue skies in areas of China that they haven’t seen in years. People are unified in a common challenge, and it can bring out acts of love, creativity and kindness. A wonderful example of this came last Saturday. I was pulled outside by the melodic sounds of beautiful saxophone music. On our street corner was a young man sharing his amazing musical talents. More and more neighbors were being drawn outside. People passing by stopped to listen and began intermingling with others, albeit 6 feet away. Everyone was soaking in the atmosphere…listening, smiling, laughing, talking, some even dancing. In that moment in time, the young musician had lifted everyone’s spirits and created a unified feeling of bond and connection within the community.

We have purposely incarnated into this 3rd Dimension of duality during this transitional time on earth to challenge ourselves, although challenging ourselves happens to be the purpose of all incarnations. How we respond to these challenges helps to create, define and shape who we are, and can also help determine what comes our way in the future via the law karma and the law of attraction. The awakened sage Eckhart Tolle says that we tend to grow the most personally and spiritually on the heels of our greatest tragedies and challenges. Thus, the Coronavirus provides us the opportunity to decide who and what we choose to be in the face of challenges…to act like a victim or to shine as an inspiration to others.

If we’re racked with fear, there is an invitation to remember that we are actually eternal beings based in love and we can heal any repressed fear that is getting triggered within our body/mind systems so we can allow the love that we are to flow through us. This would also be a perfect time to start a gratitude journal if you are feeling fear. Our vibration raises considerably with thoughts of love, appreciation, gratitude and compassion. And it just so happens that these qualities are a natural by-product as we spiritually awaken to the truth of who and what we are. Energy flows where attention goes.

I often like to share some sources of inspiration and teaching in my blogs. Here are a few:

Gregg Braden is a scientist who bridges science and spirituality. One of the ongoing themes of his research and teaching is that we are interconnected, and our thoughts affect not only our body’s immune system and vitality, but also the well being of the planet. Joining a group meditation to heal the planet does far more than we can know and currently understand for not only ourselves but also our earth home.

Alan Pritz, meditation teacher and author, shares specifically how people can serve as channels for divine healing through scientific prayer in this article.

The Community for Higher Consciousness is a group in the Twin Cities area dedicated to supporting people to be their best selves while transitioning into higher consciousness in order to help themselves and also the planet.

Finally, The Shift Network offers online courses and classes to support the growth and transformation for people on all levels…physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

We are all growing and evolving on a soul level whether we’re aware of it or not. But it goes so much more smoothly when we are conscious and deliberate about it.

Many blessings to you!


Symposium on Energy Healing

BodySound Chair

There is an upcoming symposium on energy healing that I mentioned in my last blog. I wanted to share more about it in this one, and also about the background behind the BodySound chair, a tool for profound relaxation and healing on all levels.

Energy healing is rapidly becoming a dramatic new paradigm both in the US as self-care gains increasing prominence, and also globally as humanity begins to recognize the key issue underlying our many social ills – lack of spiritual self-identification. As we focus on this pivotal healing process it is clear that technology can play a role in accelerating our energetic/spiritual development, improving our health and vitality and adding meaning to our existence.

On Saturday, October 18th, the Global Institute of Energy Healing Technology is sponsoring a 1-day symposium on Energy Healing: Many Faces, One Source. The brochure describes the exceedingly relevant presentations, panel discussions and demonstrations covering practical applications and theoretical implications on the latest in energy healing technologies. To register for the symposium or to download the brochure please visit

For the Friday evening pre-symposium event, I’ll be doing a group-guided past life regression for participants immediately after they’ve experienced a BodySound chair session. Participation is available only to attendees registered for the main symposium and entails a separate fee of $60. Space is limited so sign up early if you’re interested, or call me at 651-649-1952.

Both events will be held at the Park Plaza Hotel in Bloomington, MN. For out-of-towners, a block of rooms have been reserved for the event at a discounted price of $79 per night. Phone: 952.831.6372.

Below is a short article by Dr. Dan Cohen about the story behind the BodySound Chair. Enjoy!


Energy Healing: The Path to Expanded Awareness and Perception
by Dan Cohen, M.D.

As an adolescent in the 1960’s and 70’s I became fascinated by stories about yogis and some westerners that could achieve seemingly impossible transformational feats or demonstrate extraordinary perceptual awareness and insight. I went to medical school and became a neurologist to study the brain, but also continued to read spiritual and metaphysical books and articles. In 1997 after years of meditation without meaningful results, I turned to technology in the hope that I too could significantly expand my conscious awareness without drugs. Our research team also included a psychic, an out-of-body observer and a team of engineers.

After 17 years of unconventional research we learned that energy healing (greater manifestation and expression of our spiritual Self as pictured and witnessed by our observers) promotes many benefits. Some of these benefits include expanded awareness and perception of spiritual influences in addition to dramatic improvement in mindfulness, peace and tranquility.

We came to define energy healing as any process that facilitates a fuller manifestation and expression of our energy system (spiritual self/Source) throughout our material plane of existence, including our physical bodies. The fundamental aspects of energy healing are:
1. unmasking our energy system (spiritual self/Source) by removing the limitations (egoic beliefs) we place upon it as opposed to repairing our spiritual self/Source, as that is not in need of repair
2. self-identifying in accordance with our true nature
Our limiting beliefs form the core of energetic blocks within our energy system that mask our spirituality. Releasing these beliefs unmasks our spiritual self/Source and allows us to manifest in life as our authentic Self. The act of self-identification represents the manner in which we manifest and express ourselves in all aspects of life; how we feel and behave, not just believe, as beliefs are solely ego-based.

As energy blocks clear (limiting beliefs are released) the chakras realign themselves with a symmetrical spin and the auric bodies appear more expanded. The individual’s personal spiritual self also is shown to be more integrated with the physical body. In addition, the spirit line appears straight, not broken, fragmented or curved. This is depicted as the transitional (middle) state above. With the transition to the Source Awakened state of being and greater self-identification with Source, the chakras appear white with a faster spin rate and white light radiates from the individual.

Our technology consists of an amplifier and transducers built into a comfortable delivery platform, which uses layered music to induce synchronized sounds, vibrations and electromagnetic fields, producing physical, emotional, mental and spiritual effects ( The sound and vibratory stimuli produce a very deep state of relaxed drowsiness. The individual becomes profoundly relaxed, but typically aware. They are also instructed to pay attention to how relaxed they feel in order to recreate this feeling at other times, independent of chair sessions. Furthermore, in this state of profound relaxation the person’s ego is far less engaged and they are more receptive to change, ultimately releasing their limiting beliefs. Our observers also noted that the magnetic fields also induce profound shifts in energy with the release of energetic blocks.

We have formed the Global Institute of Energy Healing Technology ( to assist individuals with the use of this technology, explore other energy healing technologies and generate awareness of such technologies and their benefits. We invite you to our first conference, scheduled for October 18, 2014 in Bloomington, MN (Park Plaza Hotel).
