Dear Readers,

What would Jesus do?

Five years ago, I stumbled on a healing mechanism I considered a miracle that I’d never heard of before.  I had decided to begin teaching intention workshops, but since it was impossible to have my students manifest something major like a car or a new job over the weekend, we hit upon the idea of carrying out intention in a small group, asking the group to send healing intention to someone in the group with a healing challenge.  

During weekend workshops, we decided to divide the audience of attendees into small groups of eight, and ask these groups of complete strangers to send loving thoughts to each other.

Dear Readers,

What would Jesus do?

Five years ago, I stumbled on a healing mechanism I considered a miracle that I’d never heard of before.  I had decided to begin teaching intention workshops, but since it was impossible to have my students manifest something major like a car or a new job over the weekend, we hit upon the idea of carrying out intention in a small group, asking the group to send healing intention to someone in the group with a healing challenge.  

During weekend workshops, we decided to divide the audience of attendees into small groups of eight, and ask these groups of complete strangers to send loving thoughts to each other.  

To my astonishment, it worked – immediately.  People with terrible arthritis were walking, people with migraines no longer had headaches, a woman who could barely see recovered her sight.  

The lame were walking.

So I was ready to give myself a pretty big pat on the back for coming up with something pretty huge – until my husband began reading about the ancient Essenes.  

The Essene were a mystical sect of the desert who believed that their job was to awaken those who were asleep. This ancient group believed in the Unity of all life and a kind of divine energy field suffusing everything and aspired to man’s highest aspirations.  They believed that they were the caretakers of evolution and so lived communally and abolished hierarchies.  

They believed

•    In sharing everything so that there were no rich or poor
•    In being vegetarian because of their respect for all living beings
•    In man’s role as individually and collectively evolutionary and divine
•    In energy fields around each person
•    Working with the life force of plants and learning how to maximize it through farming methods
•    Working in service to humanity
•    Peace and pacifism and never provoked aggression
•    In the sanctity  of solitude, of life as a couple and of the community

There is evidence that the Essene’s teachings derived from universal laws and teachings and also that Jesus was an early and devote follower.

As the forerunners of modern hospitals and clinics, the Essenes also believed their role was to heal the sick, which they did, as we now discovered, with  . . . intention healing circles.

They believed that a person who was ill could be healed simply by seeing the divine in him, but also that a communal activity would especially promote healing, particularly in special places they’d designated to conduct healing. Indeed, many cultures, including the Egyptians, referred to them as ‘the Healers’.

As Jesus recognized, when a group of people come together around a divine idea, such as healing, they create a divine power that works through individuals and also through human evolution. They even attempted to use energetic waves to energize and purify a space.   

So what I’d stumbled onto, with my Power of Eight® intention healing circles, was a practice that has been around, but largely forgotten, since the times of Christ.

What would Jesus do in the midst of so much turmoil at present, so many questions about humankind’s evolution?  He’d suggest that we go back to the future, and start listening to what they were trying to tell us thousands of years ago.
