I wrote this book to share certain techniques that resulted in consistent success in both relieving headaches and healing injuries. It became clear that the method could not be shared in a quick conversation, so a book seemed the like best way to describe the process. The book provides techniques that anyone can use to focus their energy on injuries for extended periods of time. This method causes the body to accelerate healing in that area. There are many books available to encourage meditation for help relieve stress, but that is as far as the instruction goes. I wanted to get past the surface benefits of stress relief to show how to go deeper into healing.
The book lays out instructions that anticipate the stumbling blocks encountered when focusing for long periods of time. Various techniques are revealed to help the reader ride through the distractions and remain focused on the task. The method was not just intended to relieve stress but is more like weightlifting and will cause the body to heat up and sweat. It is not a quick fix, and it requires personal effort, but the method provides lasting healing.
The process of healing is very dynamic and requires small adjustments to be made rapidly, much like driving a car. The book breaks down the mechanics of the process and then ties the tools together. This helps the reader identify what is happening in real time and provides tools to make the needed adjustments. The effort builds momentum in the energy that accelerates the healing.
There are no special beliefs needed because the subtle energy, is the same energy that makes muscles move. It doesn’t take much thinking to move a finger, but that same energy focused for extended periods of time accelerates healing. This sounds simple enough but maintaining focus can be a challenge. Changing focus too often dissipates the built-up momentum so it is important to remain focused. A top athlete makes a consistent effort over multiple hours to complete a workout, and the same is true for healing.
To avoid accidents a driver repeats things like checking speed and watching the road ahead. This requires a bit of training and more focus the faster the car goes. This method of meditation uses this same focus and energy to drive the body to heal faster. The more energy and focus being applied, the faster the body heals. Just like in a car, as momentum builds it becomes more important to remain focused.
A handle is a concept used to define a focus. Similar to using a microscope or binoculars it requires holding the body in a particular configuration. The benefit of seeing through binoculars requires accepting limited movement to keep the target in focus. A handle defines the limitations so the person can hold the focus. Working within the handle keeps the energy moving consistently over long periods of time. The handle becomes familiar like a repeatable muscle memory. Developing many handles allows energy to flow from multiple directions to the same target. The energy flowing to a particular area accelerates healing.
I realized that this method could be shared with others much like a fitness coach shows students the best techniques to success. The next step was to compile the method into a book I could share. Although I have a lot of experience creating technical documents, this was a bit of a different experience. The book was written from a technical point of view but contains many analogies to make it easier for the reader to relate to the concepts. I want to give a special thanks to Rose Freeland and her team that helped me complete this book with her wonderful artwork. Her great insights into the art world created the images that I hope will inspire the reader’s imagination. The human imagination is a powerful tool when it can be focused on a particular task such as healing.
