I attended my first Master Sha affiliated workshop in October, 2012 in Ottawa, Canada. The workshop was offered by Master Lynda Chaplin, Divine Channel and Worldwide Representative for Master Zhi Gang Sha.
Since that time I have taken up the practice of chanting regularly based on the wisdom, knowledge and teachings of Master Sha, a world renowned master teacher and healer.
Here below, are a few of my comments and reactions to the first chapter of Soul Healing Miracles, published in November, 2013.
I wish all of the readers Love, Peace and Harmony in your lives.I encourage you to explore Master Sha and his teachings and to purchase a copy of Soul Healing Miracles.
The introduction to Soul Healing Miracles is important for several reasons especially if you are new to Master Sha's books. Master Sha clearly explains the purpose of his life and how it is relevant to his teaching. Simply put, the purpose of his life is to serve others, to make others healthier and happier.
In order to do that, Master Sha talks about transforming the soul, heart, mind and body of humanity and all souls in Heaven, countless planets, stars and galaxies. This is his spiritual task- to create a universal “oneness.”
In order to achieve this goal his 'total life mission includes three empowerments' taken from the book:
1.To teach universal service to empower people to become unconditional servants
2. To teach soul secrets, wisdom, knowledge, and practical techniques to empower people to create soul healing miracles and transform all life
3. To teach 'Tao' to empower people to reach that state- which is the Source or the way of all life in the universe. Tao is the universal principles and laws.
A human being has two lives: a physical life and a spiritual life. In a sense we are all spiritual beings who have lived many physical lifetimes in our past. Our current physical life is just a short stay on the planet in the grander scheme of things, and there will be countless lifetimes to follow.
So, in order to make the best of this lifetime and the ones which follow, there is so much we can do to improve our 'spiritual standing'. One of the many paradoxes you will discover in Master Sha's teachings is that the more we become introspective, the more we chant, learn, and heal ourselves, then the better the prospect of attaining a peaceful, loving and caring society. It is largely an 'inside job.'
Ancient & Sacred Wisdom and Practical Techniques Highlights
Master Sha has been involved in spiritual practices for over 40 years. He is a qualified doctor of western medicine and Chinese medicine, and an expert in many other disciplines. Master Sha explains that Mother Earth has entered an new era- the soul light era which began on August 8, 2003 and is the beginning of a 15,000 year cycle.
One thing we must realize is that Master Sha receives spiritual messages from Heaven, and that he is being guided by the Divine to help humanity heal Mother Earth. Master Sha is not teaching religion, and has respect for all religions. He mentions this fact in his books, and shows how his teachings complement the spiritual work that world religions espouse and promote.
An example of the wisdom revealed in this chapter relates to meditation. There are countless ways to meditate and billions of people in the world have used this practice. “Meditation is creative visualization: what you visualize is what you receive blessings for” Some people meditate by visualizing the sun, moon, a mountain, Jesus, Mother Mary, a Buddha, a holy saint or other spiritual fathers and mothers.
Whatever is visualized successfully through regular practice will promote healing, rejuvenation and many other aspects of life. In fact, there are three components to meditation using this method:
Body Secret- how you position your body and your hands
Mouth Secret- the mantra that you use
Thinking Secret- what you visualize and where you focus the healing and blessings
Understanding these principles will make it straightforward for the novice to begin chanting and meditating, as Master Sha provides the mantras and explains the significance of each one. This is where self healing begins.
Chinese Medicine and the Importance of 5 Elements Theory
People get sick because their “ 5 elements” are out of balance. According to ancient Chinese wisdom, the human body reflects nature in that the basic elements of life are encompassed in the body. The elements are: wood, earth, fire, metal and water.
Each of these elements are represented by the body's organs, actually a series of organs. For example, the “wood element” is controlled by the liver and gallbladder, so that if either organ is not functioning as it should, then the other organs which are part of the wood element(eyes, tendons & nails) could be affected as as well.
So, to use the 'wood element' as the example; if one's fingernails are brittle or an eye becomes red or inflammed, the Chinese wisdom states that the “wood” element is sick, and the corresponding body parts could be sick as well.
The other major factor about the 5 elements is that we react emotionally to both balanced and unbalanced situations as they pertain to each element. In other words, sticking to the wood element once more, if the liver and gallbladder are healthy, then our balanced emotion would be patience. If, however, these two organs are sick in some way, then the unbalanced emotion would be anger.
So, to conclude with a simple example that would call for a specific practice; in a situation where someone became very angry with a spouse or a business mistake or a lost wallet, then the 'wood element' could be out of balance.
By picking out a specific chant to heal 'anger,' one could chant for a half hour, an hour or perhaps longer and find that the anger subsides and a a sense of calm and patience takes over. This would be one example of how we can bridge our emotional behaviour with our physical condition, and so some self healing for our condition.
