michael9325 - You’re Not Going Crazy…You’re Waking Up Lecture w/ Michael Mirdad $20 Adv/ $30 Day of

Michael Mirdad explains why the challenges in your life (and in your heart) may make you feel as though you’re “going crazy.” The Five Stages of the Soul Transformation Process guide you through such challenges (including the “dark night of the soul”) and lead you to the “Light at the end of the tunnel,” wherein you gain a new perspective of your life, yourself, and your purpose. The Soul Transformation Process includes: 1) Dismantling, 2) Emptiness, 3) Disorientation, 4) Re-building, and 5) A New Life. This process assists you in rising to new levels of spiritual mastery, wherein you become an active participant in Re-building a New Life, a life that resonates with your Highest Good and is described in A Course in Miracles as, “A future . . . without a trace of sorrow, and with joy that constantly increases.”

Dr. Michael Mirdad is a World-renowned Spiritual Teacher, Healer, and Author. He has worked as a Healer and Counselor for nearly 30 years and is the author of the best-selling books, The Seven Initiations of the Spiritual Path, You’re Not Going Crazy…You’re Just Waking Up!, and An Introduction to Tantra and Sacred Sexuality. Michael has facilitated thousands of classes, lectures, and workshops throughout the world on Mastery, Spirituality, Relationships, and Healing and is commonly referred to as a “teacher’s teacher” and a “healer’s healer.” He has been featured as a keynote speaker in the world’s largest Expos and Conferences, and has been on radio, television, and various Internet programs, as well as being featured in several magazines, including Whole Self Times, Sedona Journal, and Yoga Journal. Dr.Mirdad is respected as one of the finest and most diverse healers of our time and for his ability to share the deepest teachings in a clear, applicable manner.

Michael is both an incredible spiritual teacher and yet also one of the world’s most intuitive counselors and healers. When he facilitates a lecture, church service or workshop, it’s not like anything done by other teachers; it’s more like a miraculous experience. In a single event, you can find some audience members experiencing the greatest teachings and insights in their life, while others are brought to the deepest tears, and still others laughing from his wonderful humor. During his lectures, it is not uncommon to see angels and beings of light surrounding him or to experience deep emotional healing.

Michael is a profoundly spiritual being and truly an anomaly. He is well learned but is mostly self-taught. He teaches on the disciplines of Christ and Buddha and yet also on the subtleties of sacred sexuality and healing trauma. He teaches on more topics than most people could study in a lifetime. It’s impossible to label him. Is he serious or hilarious? Are his teachings deep or simple? Michael Mirdad is one of those people you might easily refer to as an embodied angel or ascended master. One thing is certain: he is a modern day miracle worker, channeling God’s love in a most unique way.

dr_shaye26-29 - Private Sessions w/ Dr. Saul Shaye

Dr. Saul Shaye was a chiropractor by day and a healer by night from October 1975 to January 1993. By day, he worked with his physical hands at his clinic. In the evening, he worked with his hands of radiating light, channeling universal energy to treat people who were often hundreds of miles away. Now he is doing the healing work full time.

Q. What exactly do you do in a spiritual healing session?

A. First thing I ask a person in a spiritual healing session is “What is it that you would like to have healed?” I do tell people if you have a “laundry list” to focus on the main 3 things because if you try to focus on too many things at one time you get too scattered and you don’t allow yourself to receive very well. The reason I ask people if there is something specific, people tend to receive more fully if they participate in the process. An example, say you have a person who is an alcoholic and comes to you and says oh just fix everything. What’s been my observation is the person who doesn’t share where they are stuck, and that they know that’s where they’re stuck, they’re holding on to it. They share where they’re stuck or what their manifestation or symptom is, not for the healer sake, who’s neutral, and not for God because God already knows, they’re sharing it for their own benefit so that they can receive more fully. Say the person tells me they have 3 things they would like to have healed. I scan over the body; my hands basically dowse. I get information like I’m checking batteries. Should I do some healing with the spine, should I do something with the nervous system, should I check the blood, the body’s chemistry? Should I work on the organs, the endocrine glands? Should I do some healing with the emotional body, the mental body, the energy centers? First I gather information on what it is we can do like charging batteries, Then I shift into an altered state of consciousness and let God take over. How do I make that shift? I really don’t know. But I think it’s like any spiritual practice whether it’s meditation or prayer…the more you do it, the better at it you become. I shift into that altered state. I let Spirit take over. A few minutes later, I recheck these individual things like checking batteries. Are they fully charged? Is there anything more I can do at this time? Then I also check over the trigger points along the spine and do some vibrational acupressure in person. When I do my phone sessions, which I do half the time, I let Spirit do those trigger points for me. The reason I do the trigger points physically when I am there is to help people receive more fully because of their linear belief system. Some contact makes them more receptive as they think God is more present, although God is always present.

RESPONSE TO TREATMENT

Dr. Shaye can communicate with the body with energy by asking anything dealing with health matters. He receives a “yes” or “no” response based on the question. Dr. Shaye’s patients have experienced many different responses to his spiritual healing treatments. A visible balancing of the spinal muscular connection is observed 95% of the time. Other healing sensations that have been experienced include heat, tingling, stretching, colors, mental images, a sense of peace and an overriding sense of love. Spiritual healing treatments have produced a much faster response than physical treatments, often with conditions Dr. Shaye would not be able to treat nor would have the knowledge to treat.

Healings are available in person or by phone in the following areas: physical, emotional, mental, career, relationships, finances and pets.
