This video and practice is a life-changer for me – provided I “remember” to practice it. I have practiced a lot today, and like a miracle, the “thing” I “greeted” became sacred. I  did both the inner practice and the actual practice a LOT.

What it did – was helping me see everything that happened as a vital, integral ingredient for a good result.

I was stitching a work with intricate details – and while doing this, a lot went “wrong.” But as soon as I started to see the perfection and sacredness of absolutely all – included knots on the thread – I saw that each seeming fault was in fact a mirror of what needed my heart-felt acceptance of “faults.” I ended up resisting nothing – with no agendas, no firm expectations – and after a while of this, the whole work flowed with an ease and joy that was remarkable. There was a lot of laughing in that process. Irritation was absent.

Just by doing this “silly” exercise ( as spiritual ego would call it)  I experienced so clearly how there CAN BE no true artistic expression when there is control and expectations of a certain outcome – and  without this control, the needle just did its thing, playfully.

 

Stephen and Ondrea Levine’s free website

I love to share a link to a free website to a couple of Teachers that has taught for over 50 years now – including the Dalai Lama. Now their site is FREE and open – and I am linking to the 3-part videos that changed my life many years ago, “An exploration of healing into Life and death.”

What they teach so stunningly, is how to deal with difficult emotions in a loving way. Their work is radiantly clear and compassionate – many of you here know them. Their oldest videos are about 40 years, I think

The Levines have even written an endorsement to my book in the right menu – When fear Comes Home to Love.I copy it here:

“Leelah says ‘we are not the story, we are the light filled loving space the story floats in.’ Leelah is this space; her writing is a precious resource for the heart and mind. The Tibetans speak about the priceless gem, the ageless doctrines of truth; such are the gifts of the teachings found in her fine book.” –

A favorite Website: Stephen and Ondrea Levine

The Levines site is now FREE

Here is a Christmas gift from Stephen and Ondrea Levine – masters of the heart. There is now free access to their website with videos and teachings from the 70ies  – included some with Ram Dass. Invaluable treasures for humanity. Don’t miss this!

“On death and dying” – their deep experience of working with dying people through 30 years as a free service – often by phone in the night – these two walk their talk. Or rather, dance it. Look up Stephen Levine on The Book Depository.* I have all his books, and still remember the awakening when i first read his suggestion to “soften around the pain” – like a fist opening, slowly and gently. Here are videos:

Their books are full of lived life in service of Spirit. And Stephens meditations. Their website is a treasure trove. It is so typical of them that they have opened the website for FREE

You might also enjoy the “apologies-page.” Go there and see. I experience healing each time i read one of those – I might pretend I have written it, or I may pretend I have received it – in both cases, deep release – how could it not be, we are all truly ONE

Breaking the cycle of Self Judgment

I love this so much – to be reminded about WHY we keep the self judgments  – I tend to forget it when it comes to me, so I guess this may be valuable for you too – ? 🙂

 

5 ways to kill your dreams

Healing our view of the world

This is Tapas Fleming, one of the great spiritual teachers on this globe. She has truly demonstrated how to heal herself and to see herself as God has created us – and we who have learned this simple method are in awe of its practicality and simplicity – and its efficiency to change what is not beneficial, into health and happiness. I can’t count the times when doing TAT has changed for good sickness and pain – and negative habits and conditions – in my life.

Doing this video, you will join with thousands of people and TAT-practitioners all over the world who use this very simple method of doing a pose and stating certain beliefs/statements, while holding certain acupressure points that help the bodymind process what you say.

I cried all the way through doing this – the feeling of connecting to our true nature is tremendous for me.

(The method is freely down loadable on www.TATlife.com

 Click on “How to do TAT on a stressful event” and get the method for free in your mailbox.)
