~ Fire From Within ~

  • 01/06/10
My mind cannot differentiate, these years, which parts of the Castaneda series are within which book. I think Journey to Ixtlan and Tales of power were special, in that it was beyond the tedium of the natural; but, frighteningly potent; drug trips described in A Yaqui Way of Knowledge and A Separate Reality. To pit the mystery against the stupidity of all of us...I guess I took Carlos to heart, in the seventies, as great fiction with scientific foundations. He is adept at believably pushing the envelope, so why not exaggerate to emphasize a life-preserving point, so they may remember years later every time they consciously shut off the internal dialog or look at their hands while dreaming. Carlos transferred a vital sense of intrigue to the reader, so much that I would be waiting in front of a bookstore to get the first copy of the next saga the morning it came out. So, definitely, Fire From Within, was one book hot off the press for me, sparking even more anomalous occasion and synchronicity. I don't know if it inspired sobriety and containment; but, that is what I have achieved. To keep coming up with unique material as fresh as the Ring of Power and Second Ring of Power took skill, considering the books they followed. Soberly, I yet seek that kind of knowing and seeing; without violence or war. I am so far into the path of mystery and magical concepts now there is no way back to the ordinary. It seemed to start a decade ago, when I picked up a copy of the Eagle's Gift, I think, and turned to the point where they were about to cross that bridge, which was where I had left off so many years before, in cowardly avoidance. I finally did it- finished the book and read the next. Was it Don Juan; oh, no, it must have been Carlos; who was such a wise guy- and it is documented that he really did make all those trips to that desert. Watch, out, he may now, having become deceased, exercise free reign in stalking our dreams. I will direct the attention again into my natural mystery studies and exhaustive piles of notes. Did his inspirations alchemically affect my brain for life? Oh, yea, right; I am so sure...ha , I was already that way. I ask myself again, where's the fire? PS: Any or every author could have an impact on our whole life. So many years later; even if I cannot remember the words, it still paints a mental picture indelibly in my mind. When I have a profound thought I should write it down, so every one would read like a poem in itself and simple enough to be a song. So many books have I read with so little thought to review... Perhaps a stroke; I had a ring of fire happen one day, or so it would appear; in the air, just after I fell apart, intimidated but stubborn, kind of like Carlos, indecisively standing my ground as if caught in the spotlight of one thinking to redirect my course; unable to run away or to bow to compliance. This fire emerged into view from out of the corner of my eye to the right with my head half cocked; and it hovered in the air, crackling in coppery golden burning burnt orange. {Like a ring of tongues of flame or as a hula hoop missing about a foot to go all the way around} I was a bit scared so I looked it up to see if it could have been anomaly indeed, over blowing a fuse in the brain or pressuring an artery. And sure enough I found such a thing and posted on it previously. There must be fire in the whole being. &... by Barbara Kim Thigpen

Commanding the Light

A Conversation about Paranormal Healing between Antionio Silva, Paranormal Healer, and Hans Holzer, Parapsychologist

Antonio Silva Paranormal Healer and Hans Holzer Parapsychologist


ISBN: 978-1-57733-213-8, 116 pp., 5 x 8, paperback, $13.00                                   INTRODUCING--Antonio Silva--medical intuitive and healer, as he reveals the principles of "paranormal healing" and his own unique work in this compelling dialogue with the renowned parapsychologist, Professor Hans Holzer.

Their discussion will help enlighten readers to a phenomenal form of healing that transcends so-called "new age" methods. Antonio practices "healing" in its purest form--despite the obstacles and density of our modern world. Using this profound yet simple knowledge, Antonio guides humanity to a brand new level of awareness and consciousness.

"I also feel, depending on each case and its needs, that the best of both worlds--standard medical and alternative medical--should be used for the best results, unless one method is in direct contradiction of the other. Antonio Silva ... is an outstanding example of a natural healer and cannot be recommended enough." Professor Hans Holzer

"This is not the practice of energy healing known as Reiki, nor is it the power of suggestion; what I do is grasp the Consciousness inside your body and tell it where to go and what to do. I can remove tumors and lower blood sugar levels. I can slow down and speed up your heartbeat. I can remove pain from your body, and I can just as easily put it back. It is as simple as that." A.S.

"...the supernatural experience that my clients have with me is often the thing that sticks in their minds the most, regardless of how much relief they feel from the illnesses that brought them to me. And the best part about it is that the gifts that are awake in me are waiting to be awakened in you, too; we are all divine in the full sense of the word." A.S.

Excerpt

Dr. Hans Holzer: Antonio, from your point of view and with your experience, how do you define healing?

Antonio Silva: I define healing as the body’s ability to restore to itself the harmony and balance that existed within it prior to the onset of disease. The body-mind organism must be in harmony for health to prevail. I think of the body as a beautiful building made of glass; those panes of glass may have become stained, filled with cobwebs in the corners, and covered with dust from years of life’s stormy weather. The body is often too overwhelmed or too weak to remove these impurities by itself, so my job when healing someone is to help that process by directly infusing into them the proper balance of pure, energized Consciousness which restores the body’s clarity. This recapturing of our very essence is healing in its truest form.

How can someone heal a person of cancer over a distance of thousands of miles?

I deeply respect and understand the desire by some to know and understand the process of my healing powers. It seems so miraculous, and if you have lost your hope, you really want to understand. Miracles happen and they happen every day and there is no reason why they cannot happen to you too.

Before explaining how I “command the light” you need a little background.

Naming the power that resides within me does not really explain it: The words medical intuitive, distant healer and commanding the light are just that, words. Words don’t explain it because there are degrees of experience and power and degrees of understanding. Words are representations and approximations and have been invented for the sake of human convenience and our desire to have intellectual order.

There are degrees of capability: Two people may use the words “Medical Intuitive”, or “Distant Healer” but this does not mean that they have identical capabilities. There are degrees of capability.

It’s not gut instinct or intuition: The word Medical Intuitive is not the same as the common use of the word intuition which infers to your gut instinct, or having a feeling, or playing a hunch. When I work with you there is no guess work, no hunches, or gut instinct. I know exactly what is wrong with you; I can see and feel it as clearly as you might see words on a page.

You don’t have to see it to believe it: My healing is deep within the body, the mind and the soul, you don’t necessarily see it, but you will sometimes feel it. Think of the healing much like other routine things you cannot see, touch, taste, or smell; such as air, wind, electricity, or radio waves. We know these things exist because without thinking about it we turn on our lights, our computers and cell phones, our radios and we breathe. Ironically, we believe it and then we see it. We just are not attuned to directly perceive these things but we know they work because the laws of the universe command them to. The same holds true for medical intuitiveness and distant healing.

We All Share the Same Source

In addition to the four things above, you must know that we all share and are implied from the same light source. Because of this, I am not different from you, it just so happens that the part of the light living through me has abilities that are different from the part of the light that is living through you. Each of us though shares a common source and are called to be aware of the light within and to manifest and express the abilities and talents that comprises our light.

Sky Scrapers of Pristine Transparent Glass

When I work with you I first see you as a beautiful sky scraper made of pure, pristine glass that is so transparent that there is a brilliance in and out and throughout with no obscurity. It is from this point that I see issues with health, past life issues but always before proceeding at this point I always ask you, how you want me to talk to you; good news, bad news, or all the news.

Your Body Emanates From Consciousness

At this point, as I enter your consciousness, starting at the moment from when you first entered this world, I will begin to pick up and look at your life journey as it has existed in consciousness taking note of events here and there. I note all traumas, significant emotional events, and challenges. Basically, from the point of entry when we come into this world, your consciousness (and therefore health) is influenced by these events in your life. These are things that cloud the pristine transparency of the glass and therefore your health.

Wiping the Slate Clean

In simple terms from this point, as it relates to healing your body, I take the conscious light and using it to clean the glass of your conscious skyscraper. I direct and use “The Light” to repair any parts of the glass that has been tainted, or wipe and clean the grooves of the record. This is the beginning of the healing process and it starts at the conscious level to negate the root causes of your physical disease.

Explanations are No Substitute for Experience

Ultimately, explanations are no substitute for experience. Miracles defy logical explanation. They just are. There is no A+B=C formulation that I can provide that neatly wraps things up. There are no user’s manuals or schematics. There is only me, my healing hand, my legacy of healing work and what others say.
