I am currently reading this wonderful book,Â The Wisdom of Forgiveness by the Dalai Lama and Victor Chan. This was one of the many fabulous books as yet unread by me on the shelves of my metaphysical library, courtesy of my husband’s love for books. With Reiki II opening my heart Chakra even wider, I’m learning about compassion and forgiveness in my every day life. The stories in this book are Victor’s first-hand accounts of spending time with the Dalai Lama over their thirty year friendship. One of my favorite stories is when he got permission to videotape the Dalai Lama’s morning meditation. The camera was set up just fine, the lighting was OK, and everything should have been good to go. Once the meditation was complete, Victor returned to his hotel room to review the raw footage. Here’s what he found:
I turned on the camcorder and rewound the tape to the beginning. The first images on the small LCD screen were of the Dalai Lama sitting behind his desk in his meditation room. He was getting ready to start his meditation. The lighting was adequate and the sound was good. Suddenly, horizontal stripes leaped across the screen. Instead of the wall mural, there was nothing but semitransparent bars in differing shades of gray. The Dalai Lama had disappeared from the screen entirely.
The energy our body generates as we go into meditation and align ourselves with the power of intention is pretty intense. It amazes me when I hear stories like this, it reminds me of how real our spiritual lives are. ThatÂ meditation by the Dalai Lama can knock out recording devices is no big surprise. I love this path that I’m on right now!

I have a very close friend who levitated earlier in her life when working with a teacher and a special spiritual practice which she was given called the Divine Light Invocation.
I have also seen some amazing things. I know many people who have wounds healed each summer when a medicine man spits in some dirt and rubs it on wounds.
I have seen people caress red hot stones as they come into the sweat lodge too…and not even notice that they are hot as they do it.
I have seen several people pick up a log that’s in flames and put it back in the fire and not be burned.
The mind and the power of mindfulness and relations with the natural elements and with Spirit can altar what we think of as natural laws. I’ve seen it with my own eyes and am beginning to expereince this in my own life as my own relations are changing with my natural world and with Spirit. It is indeed awe inspiring…but it also makes perfect sense as one becomes accustomed to being around this…it just makes sense.
