Amidst burning incense, winter coats and familiar smiles I gave my first Qigong Healing class since completing the 6 month Zhineng Qigong Teacher Training course in Guilin, China. Beneath the shadows of flickering candles the faint tinkling of glasses and laughter could be heard. I entered the room as Bob Marley warmly greeted me. He was vibing from the speakers. I do love the groove of Bob but on the sound advice of my guides I swapped him for the golden vibe otherwise known as silence.
Guests started to trickle in, the circle we had set up with chairs began dancing to the hokey cokey, some jutting in and out due to numbers. The plush venue managed to squish all 40 of us together. One persons Qi field mingled merrily with another’s. Sometimes an arm or a leg would touch the person sat to either side. All boundaries seemingly dissolved into the ether. As the evening progressed I began to relax and guide the meditation with my newfound cosmic family.

The evening began with Soul Gazing – highly recommended whilst travelling on public transport  – it required each of us to spend a few moments looking directly into one another’s eyes whilst music was played. This set the tone and healing intention for the evening ahead. I was uncertain how people would respond to the La Qi Healing, a technique at the very heart of my Zhineng Qigong training. “So who’s heard of or practiced Qigong before?” I asked. Three brave hands tentatively rose into the air. The Universe paused briefly. Smiling I introduced Qigong, a Healing Art and Science – which sounded more like a swear word to one charming gentleman. The energy of the room silently began to expand and merge as I sung ‘Ba ju kou jue’ (Eight phrases) in Mandarin Chinese. I sang as though I was sharing a portion of my heart with each person in attendance. The life force energy within the room was palpable, my energy body vibrated and fluttered with the occasional facial muscle happily twitching away  (muscle spasms and twitches followed by vibrations, energy surges and tingling sensations are a natural side effect for those particularly sensitive to Qi, Prana or Kundalini energy)

Collectively we helped create a soothing, calm, healing space. I sensed the groups playful openness which made the evening enjoyable to facilitate. “Kai, He” I repeated in Mandarin, “Open and close, guide your consciousness to penetrate that part of your body which requires healing. But most importantly forgive yourself and allow healing to take place.”  Something compelling occurs whilst participating in group healing, as you give yourself permission to heal; a hidden unity unveils itself, an innate knowingness, barriers fall to the wayside, egos ebbs away, stillness envelops all with its warmth. A feeling of safety and happiness emerge. The evening rounded off as I played the bansuri flute. Recently I began to use the flute in conjunction with healing. The vibrational tone makes it effective in aiding healing to manifest upon an energetic and consciousness level.

Later that evening before setting sail towards the Dreamscape I thought about the beautiful evening I had shared with many special souls. I closed my eyelids and dropped into an intriguing Out of Body Experience. In this experience a Guide outlined the various belief systems people subscribed to within this part of the world, namely the United Kingdom and Europe. It was conveyed to me that there where a growing number of people who’s beliefs where centreing around and feeding into Atheism. A random selection of names appeared in a digitised format with accompanying beliefs. There where hundreds if not thousands of names which where quickly scrolled through. The list went a little something like this:

Joe Bloggs – Atheist

” ” Hindu
” ” Spiritual New Age
” ” Atheist
” ” Atheist

” ” Atheist
” ” Atheist Sympathy

I understood that Atheism was a valid belief system, it had its place alongside all the other countless beliefs including Religion, Spirituality and Science (uh-huh Science is a belief system too – more on that in a future blog entry). Though it became clear that this particular set of beliefs was causing problems for souls who where transitioning beyond the veil. During the conversation I was given an intense energy blast from souls who had embedded their energy fields within the vibration of confusion and hopelessness. Effectively these where souls who had ‘died’ and left physical reality behind to progress on towards finer vibrating planes of reality.

Some had been wandering for what seemed like eternity due to rigid beliefs adopted from countless lifetimes in physical reality. It was then disclosed that many people had specifically incarnated at this time to playfully reconnect people with these unseen energies. Particularly those who had cut the cords with Spirituality entirely but to do so without judgement or condition. I did some research online and found some interesting articles and stats validating this surge in Atheism. I must admit I had no idea that Atheism was on the Rise prior to this experience, I had not even given the topic much thought.

As I returned from the experience I began to reflect upon my own feelings and emotions towards Atheism. In my younger years I had identified with these sentiments strongly to make sense of a senseless world. I even built a penchant for sitting on the fence as an Agnostic from time to time – needless to say this skeptic spell didn’t last very long – That was a brief and neccessary phase that I had to go through to reach where I am today. However without my Atheist chums I don’t feel physical reality would be nearly half as fun or entertaining. After all who else would we have those long drawn out  – enjoyable – debates with? The ones where both parties huff and puff and roll their eyes back and forth.

Ultimately the relationship between contrasting belief systems is a symbiotic one, whereby we continually serve each other through them. Cynicism serves hopefulness and naivety serves reasoning. Compassion, awareness and patience are put through their paces. Below is a photo I took whilst visiting Waterstones in Piccadilly London in 2012. Click to view a larger image and read the amusing book titles that had me chuckling away. I feel the person who arranged the book stand that morning woke up on the wrong side of their bed. If i’d known who it was I would have gladly bought them a blue berry muffin. atheism
