Spiritual Winter by YiYe Zhang

A Spiritual Winter can be very hard on our resources. Yet, at the same time, it provides us with a rare opportunity to answer the calling that we didn’t even know we had before.

In a time of trauma, what we can learn from Winter is to immerse into the dark. In the darkness, we suspend our everyday mentality, we incubate. Our Soul resets and reclaims our intrinsic rhythms, like going back to the womb. 

The divine light, that we consciously understand, pours out from heaven – the above.

💙 But here, in Spiritual Winter, it is a different type of light from what we used to know. It rises from the below. Fire within Water. Like a blue flame emerges from the darkness, spontaneously and potently.

How To Truly Nourish Your Soul In A Challenging Time by YiYe Zhang

How To Truly Nourish Your Soul In A Challenging Time

✍🏻️ Like anyone who loves this world deeply and painfully, in recent years, I struggled with my practice of writing and art. With a heavy heart, on many occasions I could barely string a few sentences together.

Any challenging episode is like a spiritual, metaphorical Winter.

Chaos disrupts, yet simultaneously, it invites us to re-adopt the beginner’s mindset and fresh eyes, take a long journey to follow our roots, and deepen our craft, as a way to tend our spiritual garden.

🙏🏻 In the middle of the fertile void, perhaps a part in us can feel that the Dao is always present.

Sometimes, suffering and limitation become the agents of transformation.

If we willingly allow ourselves to enter the unknown, reaching down to our inner core, relinquishing our resistance to our deepest reservoir, we can find ourselves again – as a more nuanced and complete version.

After you have experienced breakdown of wholeness, after you’ve survived the chaos and crisis, after you’ve reintegrated yourself from the stone and cave, you are returning to wholeness in a different way.

And in this new episode of the Soul Medicine series, we’ll look into how to embrace our Dao and 5 ways to truly nourish our Soul during spiritual Winter.


Your authentic best self by YiYe Zhang

 Your best self knows your deepest calling, it reminds you of what you’ve long forgotten and who you really are.

When anxiety, timidity or despair become the collective habitual patterns, it’s important to calm our emotional body and lift our Spirit, individually and collaboratively.

🌷 The more of us who gather the scattered spirit, the more collective memories will be transformed into the nutrients which are required to heal our human realm.

So that we can revive from stagnancy, restore the rhythm of our nervous system and transform the trauma-muddled memories.
As difficult experiences turn into wisdom at the individual level, the hard-won lessons are then illuminating the collective consciousness to entice the divine light to be reborn.

Our best self is always present, just that the journey itself is not a straight line. 

✨ Your best self is always calling: calling you to rise up and grow, to curl up and heal, to explore and transform, to guide and inspire.

When conflicts are heightened in recent times, angered and scarred, people are lonely and depleted. We stumble and wobble – it can be a real struggle to stay present with the raw emotions, let alone becoming a real help.

💐It may feel that whatever we do is too insignificant.
However, please know that every time you are interested in the person right in front of you or one screen away, when you are not rushing to conclusions but give space to hear their story, when you see the world through their heart, you are contributing to wholeness.


Your Soul Purpose by Dr Linda Gladbois via linked in

Many people have trouble understanding what their “soul’s purpose” is in being born into a physical body that often seems governed by emotional impulses and animal instincts, where life seems to be happening to us instead of being created by us, yet our “true soul” is our higher mind which has the innate ability to master and govern our lower nature in order to exercise our ability to use our life experiences as the means of growing ourselves based on the internal processes set in motion by what appears as external circumstances that are actually providing us with a mirror into our own hidden nature . . . #soul #karma #selfmastery #selfcreation #transcendence #ascension #selfdevelopment #personaltransformation

Who am I

I want to share with you one of the questions that almost all of us have asked. The question is “Who am I?”

It’s a simple question but it has an infinite massive answer which cannot be simply described in our linguistic language that we can fully understand.

Who am I is a massive expansion of expression on this earth that is based on an individual’s experiences.

Whatever you define WHO AM I is, is truth for you at this level, at this moment of time. It can not be wrong. If you resist it, it becomes stronger.

I invite you to acknowledge it and celebrate it if it empowers you, but if it’s something that is in the way of you becoming the best you can be, transformation work or internal work is recommended to shift the blindspots of the subconscious so that you can have the clarity of your paths to propel forward and experience love, joy, and happiness.

The effect of distant reiki on pain in women after elective Caesarean section: a double-blinded randomised controlled trial 

Research using distant reiki to reduce pain following an elective C-section, randomised, double-blinded study, Results found  pain was not significantly different in the distant reiki and control groups,  no significant differences in opioid consumption or rate of healing; however, the distant reiki group had a significantly lower heart rate post surgery.

Although I thought this was disappointing, there are many different ways to send distant reiki and some are most likely more effective than others, so in this respect there would need to be more research using different techniques. Reiki practitioners also vary in their methods and training, so this indicates more research is required. It could be that this particular practitioners method was very good for relaxation but not for healing or pain relief.

Pranic Healing

Pranic means life force and the aim is to bring balance to the energy flow within the body.  When giving a treatment the Prantic healer first scans the body without touching, by sweeping their hands over it, about a foot or two away from it, to see if they can sense energy blockages or imbalances.  When they find an area that they want to work on, they work on that area and remove the negative energy.  When that is gone they send fresh life force energy to the body to bring health and positive energy to it.  They draw this energy from the sun, air, earth, trees, and other things in nature.  When this restortation happens in the body, it releases any negative emotional charge along with any dark energies that can cause disease.  

The benefits of pranic healing are: it reduces stress, anxiety and depression, it boosts self confidence, it helps to decrease panic attacks,  phobias and social anxiety.  It helps remove negative blockages and brings the body into balance.  It is healing for physical problems.  It makes you happier and more content.  It assists sleep.  It improves your immune system.  It helps people be more energetic.  It is good for spiritual development.  

Energy healing

Energy healing for healing of the body, physical health problems, to help remove toxins from the body and for pain relief.  To boost immunity.  I would use energy healing if someone has had an accident or operation to help the body to recover and heal quickly.  Energy healing can be good for any health conditions and medical problems and can be used along side medical treatments also.  It can assist the problems of all the organs in the body.  Someone does not need to know what health problem they have, if they feel run down and do not know the cause of the problem, I would use energy healing which will go to the source of the condition.  I would use energy healing for spiritual development and if someone wants to become more spiritual.  It is good for mental health as well, for relaxation, to reduce stress, anxiety, worries, depression, emotional problems.  To help recover from anger and hurt or grief and to help people to forgive and move on.  I would use energy healing to boost self confidence and for phobias.  If someone has sleep problems or has difficulty getting to sleep.  To improve cognitive abilities such as attention and decision making.  To help someone reach their goals.  To help someone release negative emotions and negative thinking.  To help someone who is unhappy and struggling with their life.  To help someone overcome emotional problems caused by the past, to release negative energy built up from past unhappiness and past difficulties.  To increase someone’s strength to cope.  Energy healing can also help to bring balance to people’s lives so if someone says their life is out of sync or they are unhappy and they want to make changes in their life, then I would use energy healing for them.  

Spiritual counselling

What is aromatherapy as it relates to spiritual counselling?

Aromatherapy is the use of essentail oils which can be burned for their scent to be inhaled or used combined with a base oil for massaging onto the skin or putting in the bath.  Essential oils go into the skin when they are used on the skin so their benefits can be profound.  With regard to spiritual counselling, there are oils which can be used to help connect someone to their soul more deeply, the scent of the oils resonates with our soul, there are essential oils which can be used to heal the soul and to help solve problems within it or the person’s spiritual journey,  there are essential oils with can assist spiritual growth and oils which can be used to help improve our emotional wellbeing.  Some oils help to manage one’s moods and part of this is our thoughts so they can help to relax and improve one’s emotions and thoughts from negative to positive, which is helpful to some people who come for spiritual counselling if they have anxiety or struggle to think positive.  Some oils help people be more spiritually open or to help them listen to the messages of the universe or their intuition.  So there are many oils which help in someone’s spiritual journey in various ways and help to reduce any problems which are a blockage to their journey and to reduce and assist problems in their life.

Aromatherapy can be combined with other spiritual counselling modes so it will boost their work/power as well.  A spiritual counsellor could make a blend of oils specially suited to the person’s particular needs and combine it with other modes of spritual counselling, so the person can use the oil at home, or it can be used which having the other modes of counselling.  For example some counsellors have the oil burning or diffusing which they are doing the counselling.
