Maui, Hawai’i ‘Gifted Healers’ Wisdom

February 23, 2012

Well, this pretty much sums it up…the quote BELOW… of my recent 9 month ‘walkabout journey’ of self-inquiry.

It was ruthless.

It felt like a dis-ease.  

I had to keep looking at layers of ego being ruthlessly peeled away, only to find that it lightened me up and began healing the ‘dis-ease’ in my life.

I didn’t even know how much I had wandered away from Source until I started truly looking – where it’s UN-COMFORTABLE.  yikes.  cringe n smile 🙂

Today, I feel I have been stripped bare and voila !  I am standing in the most joyous, clear, True-est feeling Self I’ve ever felt.  There are some validations that something major has changed too.  I am manifesting easily and gracefully, whatever I need.  I had to TRUST.  LET go.  I gave up all material possessions but a few and after arrival back on Maui, my true home, I have never felt better nor found life so easy and loving and joyful. It just happened to take me 55 years.  My belief systems almost killed me.  Never too late tho’, right?  To try and feel PEACE and JOY in one’s life.

GO FOR IT !!  If I can do it, so can you.  I’ll share my recipe – – it bloody well works !!

It must start with PURIFICATION.  Start with the physical body and the rest will follow – – with a little help from friends 🙂  My recipe for getting CLEAR…is go for the SOURCE techniques and processes.  It’s like hitting the RE-SET button.

Wouldn’t you like to hit the RESET BUTTON on parts of your LIFE, after all that we’ve learned?  We can go back and heal, forgive, erase.

DON’T GIVE UP ! ! I know what that feels like too, I almost did, because I thought I just wouldn’t get through the healing and the changes that came forward – – mostly the ‘letting go’.  Geez, I was such a good ‘lil student of life, I was like a pitbull, hanging on to every good thing that those around me had taught me and told me.  Most of it was not for me and not what I believed and not Source oriented.  It took me a long time to wake up to finding this out and then peeling away others beliefs that I had absorbed into my reality.  What a mucky soup it made.  No one ever really told me HOW I was to separate it all out – – sure I’d taken all the courses, but still I was a failure at it.

The only thing I can say that made a difference was like what I hear about alcoholics lives when they can’t stop drinking and lose everything – – their loved ones, their material possessions, their jobs.  Well, I purposefully did it.  Selling or giving away most all and giving of myself wherever I landed, of myself, in service, which was not always the nicest but I carried on.  I eventually stood in a place where the only thing that mattered was what mattered to me, truly, in my heart.  When I got to that place,  all around got clear too.  Many people I knew, fell away.  Different people started showing up that resonated with my new frequency that, I say I’m ‘vibrating at’ these days.  It’s a beautiful thing to watch HOW it works.

NOW I can truly TRUST.  I am given all that I need in every moment.  It’s so easy to live in the PRESENT moment, when it’s like this. One can feel so Alive and totally committed to what is in front of them, instead of worrying about what may be or what was.  Boy did I get grey hairs from that kind of energy but now I’m drinking my Seawater again and fasting and juicing those grey hairs back to their non-stressed state and color.

I have highlighted what I feel are the most salient ‘hit-home’ points to consider, from Eli’s words, summary, below:

* * Eli’s quote follows here * *
“Eli
infuses the teaching with his teacher’s living transmission of silence. He presents a unique map of egoic identification as a vehicle for ruthless self-inquiry and final realization of true freedom. He dedicates his life to passing on the transmission of his teacher Papaji.

The Enneagram has appeared in our time as an illusory medicine to cure an imaginary disease. The disease is the egoic idea of separation from God, from one’s true source. The cure is to look into the wisdom mirror of the Enneagram to see past all false identifications to the truth of being.

Eli presents a radically new model of the ego and the psyche. Bringing together his background in Buddhism with the Sufi work on essence, he presents a fresh approach to awakening by using the Enneagram’s nine fixated structures of ego to clearly describe who you are not. You will see how habits of egoic identification continuously appear to veil the pure, pristine consciousness that you truly are. When these habits of mind are exposed, there is a clear choice to end the bondage of ego-based suffering and to realize the vast, inherent freedom of one’s true nature.

to Observe or not to Observe ?

January 22, 2011

Aloha and good morning ~ from Maui, Hawaii.

We’re growing !! more and more FOOD as well as population.  Hmmm.  How well do we do this?  To accommodate the growing population with food for all?

Well, the question above, answers it for us, if we took the TIME to LISTEN and WATCH – – how Nature works and moves.
The Nature of our Land, the Nature of ourSelves.  Why is this interesting to  me, as a Health Guide and a Nature Guide?  There is no separation.  As above, So Below.

What I mean is, that by observing Nature in a certain area for awhile, I can learn how the water flows, how the air moves through the trees or lack thereof, over bare ground and the results of all this biological movement.

Permaculturalists are not a new kid on the block, but it’s still a little known concept.  The interesting thing is that Hawaiians lived very closely, as most indigenous people did or do, to the principles embodied in Permaculture.  So HOW are we living life?  WHY are we economically and healthfully Challenged?  Not according to Nature and how it needs to move and change.  Have a look at a piece of ground somewhere and just watch it for a week or so and notice what works with what’s placed on it and what doesn’t.  ie:  the house is not facing in a direction to maximize the sunlight or the shade.  ie:  the trees are planted in a place that does not shield buildings or gardens from the prevailing winds.

So what does this have to do with Living Well and Light Journey Retreats?

In Hawaii, we cleanse our bodies, hence minds, through a guided week or two of certain elimination practices that clean out what we’ve put in that create dis-ease or ill health or overall sluggish-ness and more.  We also get out into Nature and immerse ourselves in her waters, her biosystems of forests or jungle.  In doing so, we start to NOTICE….notice what works and what feels good and what doesn’t.

We are embarking upon a new venture to share with those who can’t come to Hawaii to cleanse or be in our beautiful paradise nature.  Kids and youth here will be ‘reporting on’ what they find and how it affects them personally, as an individual and as a family unit.  Their perspective through good fact-finding and sharing their observations and conclusions.

Stay tuned – – we’re going deeper into what MATTERS ; about LIFE, LIBERTY, HEALTH, LOVE.

Be Well, Lahela
