Thich Nhat Hanh
I bow to you, my teacher. I have read your books and listened to your recordings for twenty years now. I came to a retreat at Estes Park in 2005; you gave me the dharma name of Wise Gardener of the Heart. I would have treasured that name anyway since you gave it to me, but it matches precisely my wish for my life.
Since that retreat I have tried to live in accordance with both the five mindfulness trainings for lay practitioners and the fourteen mindfulness trainings for teachers. I investigated taking ordination as a nun, but since I am over age 50 it was clear that was not my life path. Therefore for the past two and one-half years I have been in a solitary at-home retreat: no social activities, no entertainment, no media, shopping only for food and simple necessities. Just my healing and teaching work, gardening, exercise, and meditation.
Now my path is clear. I am the Earth-plane founder of the Lightworks Healing Method™. Higher-dimension healers taught me this system of Divine energy healing in a process that was triggered by my brother's death in January 1990. The Lightworkers Healing Method™ drew me out of my first successful career as a partner in a public accounting firm and into the healing arts. I have invested twenty-two years in training with higher-dimension healing beings, twelve years in practicing the Lightworkers Healing Method™ full-time with thousands of clients, and five years in teaching the method to others.
The Lightworkers Healing Method™ has an exceptional goal for an energy healing modality: to align with the soul's life purpose. It is both a spiritual growth vehicle and a healing system. The Lightworkers Healing Method™ improves the present by working with both past and future lives as well as higher-dimension Guides, Angels, and Lightbeings in a unique and powerful process.
BE Who Your Soul Wants You To Be: The Lightworks Healing Method is written as a how-to manual for this unique system of spiritually guided energy healing. It arose from the Lightworkers Healing Method™'s core curriculum workshops, which have been honed through repetition and are consistently producing capable healers. I am now convinced this is something that anyone can learn to do. Channeling Divine healing is not a gift; it is a teachable, learnable skill.
Thay, I ask for your help. BE will be published by Morgan-James Publishing in September, with an ebook out in July. If you read either the full manuscript or just the first two chapters included in the book synopsis, I believe you will find it to be well-written and to feel true.
Our goal is to teach as many people as possible to be Lightworkers of the Lightworks Healing Method, so that they can go on to heal multitudes of people and eventually the planet. As we each do our part, the world transforms. If you feel that providing an endorsement might be yours to do, we would be most grateful for your help in this worthy endeavor.
My honored teacher, I know your time is precious. Would you have one of your sangha members preview the attached manuscript and/or synopsis to see if it's worthy of your blessing? I apologize for the roughness of the last three chapters; they aren't quite ready for your consumption. And yet, it is your right to read them if you want to. Overlapping deadlines create this awkward situation, but I assure you the entire book including chapters ten through twelve will match the quality of the first two chapters by the time we go to print.
We need to submit a final manuscript to our publisher on April 15th and will be absolutely honored to be able to include your endorsement in that package. Although I will ask some other respected teachers for their endorsement, yours is the only one that matters to my heart. Your blessing of my project is like the hand of God on my head.
Thank you, Thay. Thank you for being the living embodiment of Truth, for being the model I follow when I wonder what to do in any situation. Thank you for shining the light on my path and the paths of so many others, and for making a difference in the world. Thank you for making it possible for me to do the same. I am truly grateful for your taking the time to read this, and - if you choose to do so - for giving BE Who Your Soul Wants You To Be your blessing.
I bow before you, my true teacher.
