Healing the Inner Selves: Emotional Healing in Challenging Times
Saturday April 2nd 2011 1 – 5pm
Albany, Auckland, NZ
As the Earth intensifies its healing process we are experiencing trials on a daily basis. For the unprepared this is taking a big toll on emotional wellbeing and peace of mind. If you are feeling overwhelmed, stressed or scared by your feelings and reactions to events unfolding in the world and in your own life this workshop is for you.
“I used to say to God all the time “Look God, I promise you that, if you show me what I can do to make myself feel better, I will do it without fail until I do! (feel better, that is) For many years I struggled and suffered until I was shown the techniques that healed my consciousness. Now I want to share them with you so you too can – not only feel better – but love your life – right now!” Antion.
This workshop is based on emotional healing techniques developed separately by Elandra and Antion, and together (39 years), plus tools that they mastered in the evolution of their own healing process. You will learn:
* The real reason why you experience painful challenges in your life
* Why unhealed past issues in your unconscious psyche cause the pain in your present
*Techniques to instantly make you feel better when you are suffering
* How to open and energize your throat chakra, key to emotional healing
*Alleviate stress and related conditions such as chronic sadness, fear and depression.

What is Lomi-Chi Nei Tsang? Firstly, we will define ‘Chi Nei Tsang’. CNT means ‘energy flow through visceral blockages’ or ‘internal organs chi transformation’. Pronounced ‘chee neet sung’, CNT is a non-invasive method of abdominal visceral massage, pressure point and adjustment of Chinese Medicine Taoist origin. It detoxifies and tonifies internal organs, uncovers repressed emotions and releases structural tensions.
CNT is an entire system of Chinese deep healing that works with the energy flow of the five major systems in the body: the vascular system, the lymphatic system, nervous, tendon/muscle and acupuncture meridians. In CNT practice, one is able to increase energy flow to specific organs through massaging a series of points in the navel area. All the chi energy and the organs, glands, brain, and nervous system cross pathways at the navel: therefore blockages in the navel often manifest as symptoms in other parts of the body. CNT works on the energy blockages in the navel and then follows the energy into other parts of the body.
This science of deep healing was brought to USA by Mantak Chia, founder of International Healing Tao, author of ‘Chi Nei Tsang, Internal Organs Chi Massage,’ and many more Taoist Healing and Chi Gung books.This article draws upon these teachings including the writings of Gilles Marin, founder of the Chi Nei Tsang Institute, author of ‘Healng from Within with Chi Nei Tsang’ and master teacher of Global Body Attitude Retreats.
I feel it in my guts! Emotions are in the body, not the head!
It has long been a tenet of natural health practitioners that good health depends on a digestive system which works well. Research also tells us good digestion has an emotional component, and that many disorders of the internal organs are exacerbated by stress. Why is it, then, that we pay more attention to massaging the back, neck and limbs than we do to the very core of where our emotions are processed – the belly?! Massage schools teach few techniques that work directly on the abdomen, and the “center,” as it is called by the holistic healing procedure known as Chi Nei Tsang, is often entirely overlooked.(Here in Hawai’i Spa therapists are threatened with dismissal if they so much as touch the abdomen!)
In many indigenous societies of the world the belly is acknowledged as the center of the being, the place to connect to in order to heal mysterious ailments. In Hawai’i the center of the body is called the piko, (navel) or na’au (feeling, heart). In our modern world we are likely to be disconnected from our bodies and feelings, often judging them with intense self- criticism, and living an unbalanced life ‘in our heads’. Our bodies are constantly digesting emotional “charges” we feel at the visceral level. A charge is internal pressure which can manifest in many ways – pain, nervous tension or even high blood pressure. For example, if someone smiles at you on the street, you feel something pleasant that’s usually fairly easy to “digest.” If, on the other hand, someone comes at you on the street with anger or aggression, you may have a harder time digesting your response, and it will take longer to move that emotion through your system.
Some charges never really get digested, because they are too shocking and the body wants to protect you from feeling them. Consequently the body finds places to hide the charge, which results in ill health. The enteric nervous system of the digestive tract is affected when emotions are not processed, and in turn the spleen and liver become stressed. Since we process emotions the same way we process food, poor emotional digestion leads to ill health. By exploring the abdomen, a person allows herself to connect with whatever emotions are present there. And since the emotional body, has no time or space, emotional charges of the past are still just as present in our bodies as they were when the trigger occurred.
The fact is, the physical body is expressing over and over again whatever emotional issue is most important at that given time! – through its structure, its metabolism, its breathing, its movements, in any way it expresses itself. However, we can only process what we allow ourselves to feel! In order to find a conduit to those emotions buried in our core, presence of mind , and presence of being, on both the part of the client and the practitioner is required. This is no lay-back-and-enjoy-it, feel-good session! Sessions are focused and interactive, with the client’s breath being directed to wherever the practitioner’s hands move. Chi Nei Tsang traditionally is performed on the fully clothed client, with only the abdomen exposed, often on a mat on the floor. CNT works to: integrate the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual by working efficiently with breathing, digestion and somatic responses to emotions tone and revitalize internal organs detoxify and remove excess stagnation in organs to improve elimination stimulate lymphatic and circulatory systems connect deeply with the nonprocessed emotions stored in the digestive system, allowing them to be addressed and cleared release structural tensions restructure, strengthen and retrain the organs to work more easily and effectively release chronic pain related to misalignment of feet, legs and pelvis teach clients to know themselves better: through guidance in assessing, correcting and improving their breathing give fundamental self-help massage techniques, specific meditation practices, and dietary and lifestyle support recycle negative energy, recognize personal patterns of tension, and use simple manipulations to restore vitality to the body
A typical session :
1. Introduction/Foundation. Opening to breath awareness and connection through coaching and manipulation. Beginning detoxification.
2. Exploration of the abdomen and navel physically and energetically. Opening the windgates. Detoxification and toning of the liver and kidneys.
3. Metabolic functioning of the internal organs, breath, digestion, elimination, sympathetic/parasympathetic balance, endocrine and defense response, meridian, reproductive, lymphatic and other systems. Toning and training them to experience rebalancing of deficiencies or excesses of energy.
4. Structural balance, motility and mobility of the organs, and how reflected in the external structure through posture and alignment. Detoxification of lymphatic system..
5. Emotional perspective: Poor emotional digestion is one of the main reasons for ill health. All our non-processed emotional life is stored in our digestive system waiting to be addressed. Detoxification of large and small intestines, retraining for optimum performance.
6. Energetic perspective: the integration of physical, mental and emotional: clearing, charging and integration of the energy field.
Integration of Chi Nei Tsang with Lomi
My healing Journey and the development of Lomi -Chi Nei Tsang started with a personal miracle healing. I was carried down a mountain with a broken ankle, X-rayed and told, “The X-rays show your ankle is very severely broken and you will be permanently deformed if we do not operate immediately to insert pins through it.” That night a healer came to my house, moved the bones into place, the swelling disappeared, I got up and walked, and called at midnight to cancel the operation. In the morning I went back for more X-rays. The X-rays proved my ankle was perfectly healed! The medical doctor was proven wrong! I said to the healer, ‘How did you do it?’ And she said, “You are always your own healer, you did it.” ‘How? was my question, and that question changed my life.
I sought answers, I studied many forms of healing in search of answers as to how I could facilitate such healing in others. Over time I became a successful Lomi lomi healer. Lomi lomi is Hawaiian (or Polynesian) massage. It is a powerful transformational form of healing, due to the’ mana’ (spiritual power) that it carries, the power of Aloha. Deep inside, a part of me knew ..obviously and ( amazingly) the body/psyche ALREADY KNOWS what it needs to heal, change or transform! How else could my broken ankle be healed overnight ?! but I wanted to know how I knew! And what part the healer played? Chi Nei Tsang apeared as part of the answer. Not only because of what it was in itself, but because it set the stage for what I knew my work is also about, helping the body shift from one state-space into another. (This shift is what I had experienced, and as I practice it now, I call it molecular restructuring and bioresonance, energyfield morphogenetic clearing, recharging and integration.) And the key is the emotions! – connecting to them consciously through the organs by way of the procedure known as ‘Opening the Windgates’. And for the healer/facilitator, the key is what I call ‘ out of the head, into the body, out of the brain, into the abdominal or ‘second brain’.
Lomi -Chi Nei Tsang of the Opu/Piko/ Na’au creates instant connection with the organs, and the emotions that originate and are stored in each organ. Sometime in your life when you’ve been hurting you’ve heard “Its all in your head,.”or, “We can’t find anything wrong with you.” How did you feel? you probably felt unheard, unacknowledged, sad, perhaps even abandoned and betrayed! This work invites these unheard and unacknowledged places, these mysterious pains and problems to be found, and works on setting them to rights, creating harmony, and inner balance … and then the physical pain, having been heard, and perhaps spoken out, is forever gone. A seeming miracle! The fears stored in the kidneys, worries in the spleen, anger in the liver, sadness/loss in the clolon, impatience and self- hatred in the heart. – all can be moved, recycled, restored, according to your unique current level of readiness. There is no ‘bad’ energy, just energy that waits for acknowledgment, and upon receiving it, then becomes the feelings of peace, balance, forgiveness, strength, patience, within all the organs.
Lomi-Chi Nei Tsang as Self -Healing Part of the power of healing success comes through the energy of the practitioner. Therefore the Lomi-Chi Nei Tsang healer/facilitator maintains a personal practice of self-care/Chi Gung/meditation, for health and energyfield balance. The human body has a resonationg electro-magnetic field ( EEG, EKG, and EMG measurable) which is awash with holographic electric wave structures. The heart has been measured to produce a magnetic field which surrounds and interpenetrates the entire body. Even stronger magnetic fields have been measured from the hands of healers who have been found to bring about synchronization of alpha rhythm between therapist and patient/client during treatment. This helps to soften and dissolve holographic emotional structures within the patient’s body so they can be more easily and comfortably assimilated or released, and brings the patient into strong alpha coherence, deep relaxation, symptomatic relief and /or ‘miracle healing’.
This work allows letting go of the burdens of old belief and opening to the new.I believe that the stress that we undergo as a society calls us to find what works NOW. What works comes from a base of allowing, honoring and inviting, not making happen. As the old imbalanced energy is moved out, there is room for the new, and then the reforming and molecular restructuring takes place. This process is an experience that cannot be described, it takes place on the physical and energy levels simultaneously, and is unique and different for everybody. It also takes place outside of the mind and the power of words to capture, therefore at that time there’s a call to let go of the compulsion to explain, understand and make rational!
