One of the most powerful and simple methods of receiving healing blessings while you are meditating is to enter into what Master Sha calls the hero condition. The hero condition is when you become the mantra that you are chanting. If you are chanting the Medicine Buddha’s name, you become the Medicine Buddha. Your entire being becomes the Medicine Buddha. You visualize yourself radiating the beautiful lapis blue color and you are serving humanity. If you are chanting God’s Light, you visualize yourself as this God’s Light that is radiating out to humanity. Entering into the hero condition allows you to connect to the Divine, the higher saints, and to all souls. It allows you to radiate divine light. It allows you to become divine. Try this practice the next time you chant a mantra and notice the difference when you are in the hero condition and when you are not. This is an important part of your spiritual practice because it allows you to expand your consciousness and to embody divine love and light.
One of the most important principles to understand about soul development is karma. Karma or Te in Chinese is a record of your services. Karma can be divided into good karma and bad karma. Good karma is created by actions that offer service. Bad karma is created by actions that cause others to suffer like stealing, lying, killing, etc. To nourish your soul you must offer good service to good virtue. A human body soul that is thin and faint is a soul that has not offered a lot of service. A soul that is large and fat is a soul that has offered a lot of service. Always be kind and compassionate to others to gain virtue. Offer service to others unconditionally and do not expect things in return. By offering service you will gain virtue which will increase your soul standing. By increasing your soul standing you will have more Soul Power to heal and to serve others.
The secret to soul healing is to understand that everything and everyone has a soul. Once you realize this the entire soul world begins to open up. The possibility off giving and receiving blessings to all souls is opened. The soul is the essence of life. It is spirit. The soul has creativity, flexibility, emotions, memories, its own thoughts, inspiration and much more. We can use “say hello” to souls to make a request for a healing. It is simple and direct. Let me give you an example of how you can make a request to heal and bless your heart. Say “Dear soul, mind and body of my heart, I love you. You have the power to heal yourself do a good job. Thank you. Then chant I love my heart, I love my heart, I love my heart, I love my heart, I love my heart… Chant for 3-5 minutes. Visualize your heart radiating beautiful golden light. It is healthy and strong. At the end say “Hao. Hao. Hao. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Gong song. Gong song. Gong song.” Hao means perfect, get well. It’s like giving a command to your heart to get well soon. Gong song means to respectful return to your abode. This is a simple and powerful way to begin self-healing.
