Healing With Love Part 2



When Kalili, the Hawaiian huna,  wanted to work on the student’s legs and feet, we were surprised to watch him simply place his hand on the student’s shoulders and give a light push. The student then slid as if he were on a game air table, even thought he was not.


The only explanation I could think of  was that the student has been slightly levitated. When it became time to place the student back into the original position, Kalili lifted the feet to table height and gently pushed the body back into place..


Unfortunately, levitation was not on the workshop schedule anywhere. I looked at all the schedules.


When Kalili finished the bodywork, he tightly wrapped the sheets around this big man. He gently lifted him up by placing one arm under his knees and the other under his shoulders, which placed him in a  modified fetal position. Kalili  began to gently sway back and forth, and it took only a few moments before we saw tears running down the man’s cheeks. After a few minutes, Kalili gently lowered the student down on the table. He told the man to lie still for a while and then get up when he felt ready to do so.


The next secession was my most revealing part of that Saturday meeting. Kalili asked us,” Why do we celebrate the death of a person when he has passed over?  Would it not be best to celebrate their spirit/soul during their lifetime?”  This was the very question I had been dealing with. I wanted to know why I did not feel the emptiness in my heart at the passing of my parents. Kalili helped me understand that since I had celebrated their spirit/souls during their lifetimes, I would not feel great emptiness. The only emptiness I felt was in losing them.


Now we move to the question of “How does one safely celebrate the  spirit/soul of another?” It is extremely easy when the process is  understood and practiced correctly.


First, you must know the difference between Sexuality and Sensuality. We are talking ONLY about Sensuality. There is absolutely no place here for sexuality. Sexuality is of a lower vibration and has no place in the celebration of a spirit/soul.


Here are the rules you must follow to celebrate one’s spirit/soul.


1. The act of love should be a sacred gift and be of the highest spiritual vibration.


A. Both parties understand the difference between sensual and sexual and

remain focused on sensual.


B. No one should be touched without having given permission. Permission may be granted in several ways.  A spoken word is the most assured way. However, it is not the only way.
