What are the Light Awakening meditations ? What do people experience in general in your classes?
Illustrations showing Buddha, Jesus, and other great saints and teachers often depict a halo of light shining out from the masters bodies. All of us can learn to awaken and to turn on, this “Inner Light” or “Self Light”. Its very easy really.
“I have never felt anything like this before”. “I felt my whole body fill with light”.
“I feel my whole body vibrating”.
“My whole body disappeared. All I saw was light”.
Sifu Douglas teaches practices that were transmitted to him by Living Buddha Dechan Jueren – Master Yu the 49th Enlightened Master Lineage Holder of the Chinese Esoteric School (Hanmi). It is one of the major Buddhist lineages. It absorbed the essential wisdom and practices of Taoism and Confucianism. The ancient meditations of the Esoteric School take the mind into higher states that causes this light to be turned on. And then… the more you spend time practicing the meditations… the brighter your light becomes. Eventually others may notice that you are emitting light continuously, and your light will continue to become brighter and brighter.
As this light shines through the body, it awakens, and heals… it open the heart, it clears the mental – physical- and emotional bodies of trauma- stress- dis-ease and other karmas, it slows aging, sharpens and focuses the mind, opens up wisdom, and more. First you and your life will change. As you “lighten up” and become more “light-hearted” you will naturally be able to help others more.
Over half of the people Sifu Douglas teaches feel more energy in their bodies or see light the first time they practice one of this lineage’s meditations. (Some people just feel comfortable at first. That’s OK, its still working). Almost everyone who keeps practicing will experience more and more, often quite quickly. Many, especially experienced meditators and practitioners have immediately experienced themselves as pure light, or have had quickly had other profound experiences.
Most people who practice one of our lineage’s meditations 10 minutes a day for a week or two will feel different, better, more relaxed and energized, sharp, clear, and focused. After practicing a few months, people have said things like… “I am not the same person I was when I started this”.
People learn to use ancient Sanskrit Mantras- sound phrases, Mudras- hand or body positions, and Visualizations to quickly and easily go into different higher states of consciousness. We have a book of 33 meditations, its a meditation manual really, giving the mantra, mudra, and visualization steps for 33 ancient meditations. The Dharma book offers 5 foundation meditations, 6 lotus family practices, healing meditations for various common illnesses such as diabetes, arthritis, eye problems and obesity, and many other meditations to strengthening one’s self and awaken. These 33 meditations can take someone to enlightenment in this lifetime.
We also teach many advanced practices not in this book. There are practices for awakening, healing, abundance and prosperity, spiritual protection, awakening all kinds of siddhi powers (spiritual abilities to help one’s self and others) and more.
People have found that the meditation, healing, and self healing practices work for almost anyone. One doesn’t have to be a Buddhist or to “believe”. The practices work because they work in harmony with laws of consciousness.
Practitioners also connect with the consciousness of the great masters such as Medicine Buddha, and Kuan Yin. Countless great masters, or as many say today- ascended masters, bless and empower practitioners to help themselves, raise their own consciousness, and to help and heal others. When our consciousness truly joins as one with the masters we too become a master.
Many people that Sifu Douglas teaches can feel the blessing and help of Master Yu when they practice and when they call on him. Healers find that their ability to help others rises, sometimes dramatically. Our lineage teaches many ancient healing techniques for general healing, and for healing specific illnesses and conditions. Our book Thunderbolt Yoga Subduing Mara (which means subduing death) has healing techniques for a 100 different illnesses and conditions that were passed down through this lineage of enlightened masters.
Practitioners of Reiki and other spiritual healing modalities that have received our lineage connection empowerment, and healing hands and Qi activation empowerments have told Sifu Douglas that these have boosted their healing abilities to a higher level. (Master Yu said that Reiki healing was a gift to humanity from Medicine Buddha in the early 1900’s).
We teach Medicine Buddha’s healing practices that been passed down for thousands of years. Included is a core self awakening and healing meditation, and a high level practice to heal others of life threatening and severe illnesses, including communicable disease. In the workshop Sifu Douglas also teaches people simple, quick methods using mantra and visualization to purify, improve the taste of, and raise the vibration of food, and drinks. Virtually everyone can immediately taste a big improvement and sense the new high vibration in the food and drinks that they have have just learned to purify and bless. These spiritual purification practices teach us how to use our consciousness to clear out toxic and unhealthy substances in our food and drink. Learn to purify air in public & private spaces, airplanes, etc. During the time of the COVID-19 Pandemic we can purify the air whenever we go into public spaces. This will protect us and help others.
Our Medicine Buddha workshop includes a lineage connection link, to on-going empowerment, guidance, and help from the masters of the lineage. Many people have found the Medicine Buddha empowerment and practices to be life changing.
Of course we talk about Buddhist Philosophy as well, for example, the causes of suffering, such as attachment and craving and how to over come these. The accumulated wisdom teachings serve as a light to awaken the mind.
We also encourage people to chant mantras that will gradually uplift and empower them. The mantras purify us and attune our consciousness to that of the greatest awakened masters – or if you prefer- ascended masters. Chanting mantras is also a kind of mindfulness practice. It disciplines and focuses the mind and our attention. We have a set of 33 foundation mantras that people can learn which can be used for all kinds of things. For people who really want to attain to all kinds of spiritual abilities there are another hundred mantras and practices.
“When your mind enters a certain state, then your body produces a kind of light. Buddhists call this one’s ‘Inner Light. or Self Light’ When the Inner Light appears, it can excite the innate abilities of the body. Every kind of energy within the body brought forth in this manner can fight against aging, resist all kinds of illnesses, and open up one’s wisdom.” [Living Buddha Dechan Jueren]
