Since July 2011, I had been contemplating on a suitable name for this new exploration and expression of mine i.e. sharing the science of yoga and healing with others. One morning in late August, suddenly “Your Presence Heals” was revealed to me in a flash during my morning Sadhana (practice) in a deep “unclutched” state. The words appeared clearly in my inner space. Just like how scientists like Newton or Einstein had their sudden revelation of scientific discoveries in the one moment – the present moment, these three words came to me but I had to piece the puzzle together by figuring out logically the space where this revelation happened.
There is a common saying “Your presence speaks volumes about who you are and what you stand for”. Presence can be expressed from different energy spectrum, for e.g. from a grosser level as physical matter like body expression but at a subtler level, it is energy or consciousness radiating the spirit of Light. Fundamentally, we are all nothing but energy as concluded by Einstein’s mass-energy equivalence theory, E = MC2. Everything that exists is energy. Presence is nothing but energy we radiate.
I discovered Body-Mind CenteringTM® (BMC) in August 2004 when I attended a Yoga Teachers’ Training in Bryon Bay, Australia with Donna Farhi, one of the most sought-after Yoga Teachers who fundamentally changed my yoga practice and my relationship with my body. Here, I want also to take this opportunity to show my gratitude to Donna who had created my direct experience of integrated embodiment.
Body-Mind CenteringTM (BMC) is an integrated approach to transformative experience through movement re-education and hands-on re-patterning. Developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, it is an experiential study based on the embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological, psychophysical and developmental principles, utilizing movement, touch, voice and mind. This study leads to an understanding of how the mind is expressed through the body and the body through the mind.
If we observe our human body, many of the body activities are controlled by the autonomous nervous system that takes care of the body without our awareness or interference. This is the miracle of body intelligence.
Deepak Chopra, a quantum biologist who gave a new paradigm to body-mind connection, said that the body is a quantum mechanical device and that it is subject to the laws of quantum physics, not Newtonian physics. In 1986, he changed the way many of us looked at our mind and how the body handles the rejuvenation process. The older wisdom had pegged it at 7 years while Deepak Chopra revised it to one year (approximately 98% totally renewed).
Based on the estimates of quantum biology, you have a brand new stomach lining every 4 days, new skin every 30 days, a new liver in 6 weeks, even the skeleton is replaced every three months. Within one year, almost 98% of our body is new! Such a revelation fundamentally changes the way we assist people in the healing themselves and others.
