I began telling you about my journey to find This Energy last year. In Part 1 of my story, I told you how I began my search in the Southwest of the United States and then into the jungles of Central and South America. However, the total direct effect of what I wanted to accomplish really wasn’t in those places. So, in Part 2, my search continued through Europe and then finally into China. And now, my story continues into the mountains of China to the foot of the Grand Master.
Is this Real?
There were training programs in Shanghai and other places to learn certain types of kung fu or different types of tai chi. It was very, very exciting to learn these techniques early on but I wanted to know about this hidden healing tradition.
After a year or two of my complaining back and forth, I returned from the United States, and they said, “Okay, we’ll take you.”
One guy took me way outside the city and then handed me off to another person who handed me off to another person. Finally, I was riding on the back of a small motorcycle.
We reached a clearing in an area near one of the mountains. That’s where they were doing the thing that I had always, always in the back of my mind been looking for. It took years to finally see it. When I saw it the first time, I had a moment of asking myself “Is this real?” I was pinching myself, getting closer. I asked, “Is this really real? Can I take a picture?” They said, “Okay, okay. You can.”
You have to recognize my situation. As always in China, all the Chinese people were wearing government issued suits. I was a tall person with a baseball hat on. Wherever I was, even in this camp, I stood out. They didn’t let me photograph much but they let me take a lot of notes. I was able to come back another couple of times and watch. And to make a long story short, they finally said that they would train me.
I excelled very quickly because this was something I’d been looking for my whole life. I didn’t know that it was even going to exist. Every single moment that I was there, I soaked up all the teachings, trainings, information and experiences like a big sponge.
I advanced so quickly that on one of my trips I was asked to see the grand master. This wasn’t something common that happened all the time. It was rare to be called to the grand master, because he was so important.
The Grand Master
The grand master was the repository of a 5,000-year-old energy discipline that had been passed down century after century after century from one grand master to the next. I was just a person trying to understand this whole discipline and was so grateful that I could actually participate with it and use it. I was wondering, “What am I going to say to him?” What kind of conversation am I going to have?
When I got there, he was sitting at the far end of the room with a cup of tea, but he wasn’t drinking it. I sat down to the perfunctory bows. Then, he looked to me and said, “You know why we decided to bring you here and teach you?”
I had to come up with the right answer because this was the Zen moment.
That was his first statement. That was hello.
What Was I Going to Say?
Immediately, it was clear from Western medicine that I should demonstrate something that would show I’d mastered what they were teaching me. Maybe I should knock something off the wall with This Energy or I should do some act that I’d learned, some gymnastic thing, using This Energy.
I had a lot of ideas that flashed through my head in that moment. It was a foreign place, a foreign room. I was not necessarily comfortable. I had to come up with the right answer because this was the Zen moment. I was thinking that this probably was my one chance to be this close to a person of this importance. What was I going to say?
At that moment, I realized I was too much in my mind and then I just dropped down into my heart. In my heart, there was only one answer, “I really don’t know.” I really didn’t know why he decided to allow me to be trained. So after what seemed to be a long-long pause, I said, “I don’t know. I’m sorry.”
He said, “Correct answer.” Then, he said, “I’m going to tell you”, and then he actually started telling me about my own life!
While he was talking to me, I noticed that I got hotter and hotter and hotter and I kept taking off my different layers of garments because I was sweating so much. Finally, I was down to just a t-shirt and I was still sweating as he was telling me about my life. It was almost like a Lotus blossom that kept opening up as he was talking to me about my life. One of the things he said to me was, “In your childhood, when you were about five years old, why did you stop healing people with magic?”
I’d never shared that with anybody. It was something I submerged a long time ago. Then I went on this other Western doctor path because I thought that would be a great thing to do.
That submerged experience was probably in the back of my mind when I was walking in the hospital aisles, stimulated by the thought, “Why don’t you look for this? Why don’t you look for this?” It was coming back.
That is what I was saying earlier. In your own life, you may have ideas that tickle you, call you. You may want to listen to them after this Energy transmission and you might start to relive certain parts of your own life as you move forward.
The grand master said, “You’ve done well. You can now go back and treat people anywhere but you just must make sure that they make good use of This Energy.”
And that’s what I did. I returned to the states to transition from student to teacher of This Energy. Read more next week, when I conclude my story.
