    Hallo an alle! Nachdem ich die Texte von gestern und heute gelesen habe möchte ich euch eine Geschichte erzählen, die ich vor zwei Wochen erlebt habe.
    Ich war auf einem Heilpraktiker Treffen von Leuten hier aus der Gegend. Wir haben uns mit Lymphdrainage beschäftigt.
    Dort war eine Frau, eine erfolgreiche Osteopathin, mit der ich ins Gespräch kam. Ich erzählte ihr von meinen Rückenschmerzen und dass es mir seit einiger Zeit nur durch nach innen schauen, atmen und dehnen die meiste Zeit recht gut gehen würde. Und dass ich denke, dass man sich nur mit nach innen schauen und atmen heilen kann. Ich weiss gar nicht mehr warum ich das sagte, ich wollte auf gar keinen Fall ihre Arbeit infrage stellen. Auf jeden Fall vertrat diese Frau dann die Meinung, dass Heilung nur dann entstehen kann, wenn die zugrunde liegende körperliche Blockade gelöst wird und dann habe ich mich doch wirklich von ihr anfassen lassen. Sie fand eine Blockade in meiner Wirbelsäule und machte eine osteopathische Technik. Seither habe ich wieder deutlich mehr Schmerzen. Das ist ok. Es war eine große Lektion für mich, mir selber zu glauben und zu vertrauen! Und wie dankbar ich bin für ARUN, wo niemand meine Blockaden weg machen will. Und ich selbst setze mich bei den Sessions immer wieder unter den Druck etwas “erreichen” zu müssen. Jetzt habe ich am eigenen Körper fühlen dürfen, wie unangenehm das ist und wie viel tiefer und heilsamer eine Berührung für mich ist, die nichts verändern möchte. Das möchte ich von ganzen Herzen immer mehr in meine Sessions bringen!
    Danke, diese Texte sind der Hammer!
    Jetzt freue ich mich auf Yoga! Ich wünsche euch allen alles Liebe! Mirjam

    Beloveds

    interesting again. Aslo the words OSTHE and OSHO being so cloese together.
    The pictures also make everything much more clear, for getting an idea about my inner body. To get started… I have seen the book in my teacher trainings, but deno’t rememerbthe name. CAn you pelase tell me. Would like to have a copy for my self.

    I had a yoga teacher from Texas, Robert Boustany, who is also very much into this way of experiencing a deeper understanding of yoga. You know each other by any chance? Would be great to share with each other, he is on my facebook.

    Lots of LOVE

      Hi Manyu, yes, it is pretty interesting! But there is really not much relation between Osho and osteo… except the 1st 2 letters. On one of the first posts, i share the roots of “osho”… it is coming from Japanese characters. Here you can consult … Day # 2… http://wp.me/p14Qm1-1j
      I’m not sure what book you are referring to… the photos i included are from different books. And no, i have never heard of R.B.
      Keep taking it gradual with your spine… and enjoy

    I read the texst and replys. I like to share following.
    I discovered, by meditating and sensing my body, that there are holes and pain in my bones. I work on that and very slowly it is opening up. I work on it by daring to enter into the holes and pain. Then a huge strength is opening up, so I am very careful. From working very consistenly and with people around me in presence it is opening up. It is very existential and I begin to notice a transparent subtle field of awareness I am in. It is opening up from my bones and I learn to feel I can exist in that field. Then the breathing is opening up spontaniously. As a young child I was very dynamic, but feeling that total transparent holding now [there was no holding when I was very young, because of ww2) I can feel my existential holding. Feeling that matrix makes it possible for me to regulate my energy and bring it home. It’s an integration. That brings an opening up of the substance and the inner space is changing…

    I ones went to a therapist who was pulling on my legs and arms very fast. It helped in that moment but I noticed the existential fear/shock increased. So I never did that again. Now I am stretching every day when I feel like doing so. I know I have to feel first “I want to be here! and from that feeling I stretch, I exist, I feel how I can open up, like when I get up in the mroning. So a deep exitential consciousness is on the base of all this.

    Sometimes the consciousness is opening up spontaniously. In a fraction I know from feeling my body. However all this is as a slow and subtle process. That’s why I want to share this., to tell you to grow slowly and accept how this is opening up in you from stagnation and pain. Underneath is “How can I really be here and being myself”. That is not alway easy but when you dare… it starts to open up.

    That full moon yesterday, I was walking outside for a while and sensing my body. I noticed a huge tenderness. I also noticed that it takes time to embody all that and be stable to deal with that quality. I call that femininity and it needs space and love to devellop. Knowing that makes me aware how I need sharing this with people and realizing ‘it is in me as a gift to learn this deep inner quality’.

    So that’s what is opening up now
    being in contact with all your preciousness
    and love,
    Hannah Bijl.

    Hello dear friends,
    first of all i want to say that i like very much this 21 days experiments and i’m really glad to share it with you.
    For some days i tried to visualize my skull and neck bones and i have been amazed by the suggestion to see the silver thread in the spinal coloumn just in these days…
    So today i have started with my intention to see it inside and this attention has been present few times during my day at work. Specially while i was giving a back massage i remembered the suggestion..
    So i have a thought about this ….when you have Arun Meditation with someone, do you see inside your spine or do you see the friend’s spine under your hands?
    In other words, during a session, what’s best between visualizing the freind’s inner body and visualizzation of our one?
    Now my patient love Apurvo, who helps me with the translation (and with the smoothies drinking), will try to write this in spanish .
    with all my heart…..Francesca

    Hola queridos amig@s,
    antes todo quiero decir que me gustan mucho esto experimento de 21 dias
    y estoy realmente encantada de compartirlo con vosotr@s.
    Por algunos dias he ententado visualizar los huesos de mi craneo y cuello y me quedé
    sorprendida por la sugerencia de visualizar el hilo de plata en el interior de la columna vertebral justo en estos dias…
    Asì hoy he empezado con la intentiòn de mirar hacia dentro y esta atenciòn ha sido presente algunas veces en el mentre de mi dia de trabajo.
    Especialmente cuando estaba dando un masaje a la espalda me acuerdè de la sugerencia…
    asì que tengo un pensamiento sobre eso… cuando das una Meditaciòn Arun, miras hacia tu interioridad, tus huesos y energia o miras hacia el interior del amig@ que estas tratando?
    in otras palabras. en el mentre de una sesiòn, es mejor visualizar nosotros mismos o la interioridad del cuerpo del nuestro amig@?

    mi paciente amor apurvo que me ayuda con las traduccciones (y en el beber los smoothies) ententerà ahora de traducir todo eso en espanol*
    con todo mi corazon… Francesca

    * ella es siempre un poco mas optimista de lo normal.. 🙂 (n d t)

      Hi Beloved Francesca, yes~ isn’t it amazing? “watching inside” brings a quality of presence that begins to “touch” the other… most times, i leave my watching inside while touching fluid. Sometimes i am more aware of the one i am touching, and “seeing” into their energy-field, and listening to the responses. Other moments, i am more seeing/sensing my life energy, and letting it flow through the hands. Sometimes, i am aware of both~ watching inside of me and the person simultaneously… this is “full presence”, and very spontaneous and “moment to moment”. Other times, i am not looking… just in the touch, or the breath, or the sensations and feelings being generated. Other moments, an energy of “metta”, or “loving kindness” is what is happening, and this is also spontaneous and “electro-magnetic” in the sense that it is a “circle of energy” moving invisibly through the contact. Other moments, when the energy is really originating and flowing through my “hara center”, there is not much mind or feeling… difficult to explain or talk about, but it is an energy of space, emptiness, and “just being” that i am very grateful to experience. And other times, i am using my “mind/ 3rd eye center” to try to connect with the one i am with in a very personal way. So, with “ARUN Conscious Touching Meditations” there is no way for me to predict… and i really don’t try to program myself or the other as to what “should happen”. I enter into the body without fear, and without expectations… using my touch as a light to help them “watch inside” with presence, love, interest, relaxation… seeing the physical body {“bones, muscles, blood, fascia, tendons, organs, ligaments, brain, glands, lungs, etc”}, and the invisible energy body {“energy lines, electro-magnetic flow, chakras, emotions, beliefs, prana, etc”}… and remembering that they are a “body and consciousness as an organic unity”.
      So it is all good what you are experiencing Francesca… simple and effective and healing and mysterious and fun and meditative all at the same time! We are sharing our awareness and our love and our aloneness with the other. That is why Anasha and i call ARUN Conscious Touch the “Gift of the Buddhas”, and also an “Inter-active Meditation”.
      I look forward to seeing you again soon… this ‘watching inside” will really transform us in many unpredictable ways. Thank you for sharing your passion for what you are experiencing and learning. A warm hug, Anubuddha
