This article describes the necessary steps, which need to be taken in order to achieve holistic healing.

The secret to a successful life is contained within the application of three simple steps, which are firstly study to gain knowledge, secondly to practice Insight meditation to invoke energy and thirdly to practice self observation in the market place of everyday life. With self observation you make a self assessment as to how much reactive or responsive behaviour is demonstrated. Reactive behaviour is ego focused with responsive behaviour being soul focused.
You monitor your own progress over time. Obviously continuous improvement is the driver to continue your progression to the egoless state. Any person can do it who has sufficient motivation to learn and apply the natural or physics laws.
Ego energy is hard, brittle, hot and reactive. When the ego dominates this will lead to the crystallization of an individual’s being. The creation of a resistance point or Sankhara is the point of maximum contraction. This is the natural consequence of an unbalanced psychic mental and emotional pattern. These ego resistance points stored in the body are hot and painful.
Resistance points can be so numerous and widely distributed that they will distort the alignment of your spine and cripple your body. Every degenerative disease has ego resistance patterns associated with it. By their very nature they are reactive in the way they influence and sabotage your life, which for most people is in an unconscious way. By comparison soul energy is cold resilient and flexible. Insight Meditation is the progressive bringing down of cooling soul energy, which will then neutralizes these resistance points.
Ego crystallization is poorly penetrated by over soul energy, which knows everything on all levels about your being. The discipline of insight meditation allows you to gradually dissolve the hard brittle nature of ego, which interferes with function in the three vehicles mental, emotional, and physical of personality.
Our physical body is like a resistance meter pointing the way. Early in the practice of insight meditation a person gains the ability to see the psychic insights or revealed blind spots. These are the unbalanced psychic patterns, which are normally beyond the level of conscious awareness. Quite literally with insight meditation we bring down to our brain conscious awareness our own over soul awareness, which is ever present.
With detached pure awareness observation the secret of life these unbalanced psychic patterns are dissolved in our being. When the purification process is complete then we have achieved the state of enlightenment or Nirvana.
Our chosen path in life is irrelevant in the context of spiritual growth.
Only the component of higher mental level in our chosen path is truly important as a primary focus. This is what enables us to see and face the whole truth about our self, which forms the basis of spiritual movement forward. The first contact of soul is the higher mental level.
Insight meditation is an experiential process which every individual needs to practice in order to discover the wisdom arising from their own direct personal experience. When we make the choice to sit in silence and stillness then the ego will become quieter. As a natural consequence this enables our over-soul to communicate with us more effectively and efficiently.
The overall aim of this form of meditation is to facilitate increased soul energy flow. This process will allow you to see as it is and not as you wish it to be.
A river at its source is narrow and fast flowing with little sedimentation. By comparison a river at its mouth is wide and slow flowing with large deposits of sedimentation. The same principal applies when we view energy flow within our being.
In this way it can be seen that sedimentation, crystallization or mineralization will all cause resistance, which accordingly will lead to reduced energy flow with reduced function. The more resistance in our being the slower or lower will be our vibration, which naturally leads to reduced ability to see absolute truth.
By comparison less resistance results in higher or stronger vibration, which enables truth to be seen more easily and clearly. Enlightenment is defined as the state where a person has dissolved all crystallization and has become egoless. This form of meditation is self observation with the perspective of detachment.
An individual faces the truth about their self with equanimous observation without craving or aversion. Where you focus your awareness is where soul energy will flow more strongly. The method for practicing Insight Meditation begins with Anapana, which is like the glow plug on a diesel engine. This is to warm up the engine to where it will fire with Insight meditation becoming possible.
During the standard hour long meditation period you focus your awareness on the triangle of your nose tip with the upper lip. You focus on the awareness of your natural breath with all the sensations that occur in this area only. The purpose is to sharpen and discipline the mind. The longer you can hold your concentration on this area without any distracting thoughts reveals how disciplined your mind has become.
After approximately 35 one hour meditation sessions practicing Anapana most people will be ready to practice insight meditation. The guideline for readiness is to be able to maintain focused concentration for at least two minutes without any distracting thoughts. This is in addition to being able to feel subtle or auric sensations over the whole of the triangle area. It is usual during Anapana practice to be able to feel subtle sensations over other parts of the body as well. You are aware of these other sensations but you do not focus on them while practicing Anapana.
Make no mistake about it, even with Anapana practice you are promoting the speed up of soul energy flow within your being. Insight meditation begins with focusing awareness on the top of your head at the former baby soft spot. If you feel some sparks the first time you try this then great as you are firmly away. The first influx of soul energy is to purify.
In the beginning our body feels crystalline, which is broken down by stretch and fracture with the increased flow of cold resilient flexible soul energy. Hannibal utilized this very same physics principal when breaking apart the large rocks, which were blocking the high mountain pass. This was done by first applying heat with a wooden fire and then cold with cool wine to fracture the large rocks into smaller sizes, which could then be easily removed to unblock the pass.
With your awareness you conduct a body scan of your whole body from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. What begins as a few sparks becomes a flood of energy pouring down. The more meditation you do then the greater is the soul energy flow with its cooling force, which will then dissolve more strongly the hard reactive brittle nature of ego.
Meditation will lead you to completely transform yourself from heavy into light density. Over time you will feel yourself dissolving away. After a critical point is reached in your meditation ability you will find that your meditation has become a continuous 24 hour automatic process.
The stronger the soul energy flow then the easier it is to maintain continuous meditation awareness. Your spine will move into straighter alignment, which will be reflected in more efficient function of all the organ systems in the body, which will then lead to visible improvements in clear mental processes with healthy skin and hair. There is also a visible softening of your body features, which becomes more pronounced and significant as you become older because your aging process is delayed.
It is quiet possible to appear quiet young into advanced old age! Our over-soul is a real powerhouse of energy, which is just waiting patiently to be stimulated into action to purify. The first time you feel the real power of your own soul you will wonder why you ever waited so long to invoke it.
Psychic insights are comparatively the easier part to gain. The complete melting of all the crystalline structures of ego takes longer. Only after complete dissolution of all defilements does it then become possible to live free of all the sins as presented in the prayer of repentance. The expression of total and complete compassion with loving grace is only achievable after we have first reached a state of egolessness.
Removal of crystallization or resistance leads to stronger energy flow with stronger voltage with its associated improved function on all levels. This will naturally lead to lower pain experience within the body. While there is pain in the body a person will always demonstrate reactive behavior, it is completely inevitable.
Freedom from illusion or Enlightenment with Nirvanic Peace will never ever be achieved by discussion but only by the wisdom of direct personal experience gained with Insight Meditation practice.

Author's Bio: 

My professional qualification is Veterinary Science. Over the years I have studied a number of other subjects as well, which includes Naturopathy, Homeopathy, acupuncture, kinesiology, clinical hypnosis and nutrition. For the Grass Roots Magazine number 186 April/May edition I wrote an article titled "Nutrition for Dogs and cats". All of this information is no where near as important as the spiritual knowledge. It is true to say that a person may survive a life with or without any particular area of knowledge.

However it is only the correct understanding with application of the spiritual or timeless knowledge that will enable a person to create a totally successful life! Sadly most of average humanity is so focused on chasing the sensational delights that they will not sit still long enough to learn some basic spiritual laws. In this way humanity would gain the ability to live life so much simpler and easier with far less pain and suffering experience!

There are only two paths in life. This is either running around in circles chasing the illusion or sitting still escaping the illusion. Eventually even the best chasers of the illusion will run out of stream and stop by default. How many lifetimes will you take before you stop to sit and meditate????

Insight meditation practiced correctly by anyone will speed up spiritual evolution. In the event that you may be experiencing some difficulties with Insight [Vipassana] meditation then it is highly recommended that you read the following articles "Immoral Action or Enlightenment", “Electrical Basis of Meditation” and “Meditation Secrets”.

For a number of years I studied with the Peacock Group in far North Queensland
Currently I am a Meditation Teacher / Insight Healer at the “Energy Healing Centre” in Margate, Queensland, Australia.
Group or individual Insight Meditation teaching sessions are held by appointment. This is a free service.
Perhaps you may prefer to experience an individual Insight healing session, which is also by appointment.
Our focus of service is on assisting spiritual aspirants to gain greater vibrational education on the pathway of life.
