Swami Satchidanand Talks About His Healing From Swami Satchidananda
Swami: It’s interesting the way the gurus heal their students. I was once on my honeymoon, with Devi Dhyani, and we went to Brussels in February, and I remember from Durham Cathedrale very early in the morning, there was a light covering of snow. And I don’t know if you know this but Durham Cathedrale is 1,000 years old at least.
It’s been voted the most beautiful Cathedrale site in the world and together with Oxford and Cambridge with the venerable (inaudible) it started off the first universities of Britain. So, as we left Durham that morning, and it was looking so beautiful, so pure, there was nobody there because it was so early in the morning. And the snow had just fallen, and everything had been covered in this beautiful pure white covering.
And at that time, I was having a lot of trouble with my anger. Which I thought to myself was a blockage, and I was praying to God, “Please help me with this blockage!”So as we travelled down to London, and of course in London where would we visit but Westminster Abbey.
And while we were there we saw this beautiful altar cloth, and on it was the poetry of T.S Elliot where he talks about Energy Enhancement. The ascending of fire into the crown into the rose which means the heart. So I felt very blessed to have been and seen that.
And of course we were travelling to Brussels to be with Swami Satchidananda who was there doing an ecumenical service. All of the high saints in the world had got together at the Parliament of Religions and they’ve all agreed to do ecumenical services where they invite all the different religions to come to service and speak a little bit about their religion and then at the end, they have a big candle in the middle and then everybody takes their own little candle and they go and take light from that big candle. It’s a very nice ceremony, it symbolises that there is only one God and all of the religions, of the people, take their light from that one God. And that’s one of the reasons why Swami Satchidananda’s has a symbol, which is a lotus with 12 petals and all the different religions around all the outside of it and he says “The truth is one, the paths are many.” Very good eh?
So there we were, listening to Swami Satchidananda talk on our honeymoon, and I was writing writing writing writing just like Honey (laughs) and I was so much in the intellect that I was missing all the energy and about towards the end of the talk I suddenly thought to myself “Lets just stop and listen properly”, and at that moment I perceived that there was a line of energy between me and Swami Satchidananda. Heart center to heart center. And I saw this spiral line of energy, and it seemed to be going from my heart center directly into his heart center. Because once you stop using the mind, you start getting in touch with your intuition and psychic powers, the intellect seems to stop that, you know.
In the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, it says that enlightenment is making all the mindwaves, taking them all down to zero. The ability to stop the mind. This is enlightenment. This is when you connect to higher sources of energy and it seems the mind stops that connections. The true use of the mind is reception, to listen, when you stop talking, then you are able to listen, when you stop the mind, then the mind can be used as a receptive instrument to listen to the voice of God.
So as soon as I stopped writing, I was able to perceive what was really going on and it actually allowed it to happen. And I felt that my blockage in the heart center was going into Swami Satchidananda and I felt that he was taking my blockage away from me. And he said, “Right”, he said, “that’s the last question”, he said, “I’m going to finish”, he said, “But I’ll take one more”. And this guy asked him the most stupid question I’ve ever heard in my life, I could have answered it in one word. And you know what Swami Satchidananda did, he talked and he talked and he talked for another quarter of an hour, on this very stupid question and all the time, my blockage was going into him, I could see it, (spiral hand motion) he was just absorbing it into his heart center. Just as it went bumph into him, it finished, he finished his talk and he went off.
And very strangely enough I got the report from his sannyasins that Swami Satchidananda was very ill that night, they were wanting to massage his feet and make him well but seems he had a little bit of indigestion from my blockage (laughs). And I received that blockage back 3 days later, Swami Satchidananda had not been able to do anything about it. Or, perhaps there’s another way of looking at it. Reframe! Reframe! You know, because Swami Satchidananda’s was one of the most powerful gurus that I’ve ever met in my life. And it seems that blockage can only go when the time is right. Sometimes we have to come to terms with our own blockages and it is not allowed to for those blockages to be healed ahead of that time. And it took me another 6 months of hard work on that blockage. He moved it around a bit, he shifted it a little bit, he shifted it a little bit. It’s a little easier to work with and eventually I started talking to this blockage. I said, “Who are you?” and he started talking back to me. He said “When you were a high priest in Egypt, many thousands of years ago, I was your psychic power and you made me do some horrible things and I have been taking my revenge ever since ha ha ha”. So of course I grounded him and I said to him, “Well would you like to go up to heaven” and he said “ No I’d like to stay with you”, so I said “Okay, would you like to be my psychic power again” he said “Okay” (laughs) So I think, from what happened at that time it was necessary that I had to do it myself. That I had to do the work myself. Because I had to realise I had been in previous lifetimes, my god. Yea. Well it’s the same for everybody isn’t it? You have to forgive yourself for all these terrible things. And part of that forgiveness is to heal all of the people that you have hurt. All of the angels that you have hurt. Over many long years of badness. And I hope that was the last one. If there had been 2 like that blockage… (laughs)
