Dr. Sha and the Power of Thanking Others

Monday, August 31st, 2015

This weekend I was able to experience four separate events with Dr. Sha—a preview of the 13 part sign-624x416television series Soul Healing Miracles with Dr.  and Master Sha, a special taping at the home of Adam and Randi Markel, the owners of Peak Potentials, a special healing and calligraphy demonstration at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills,  and a free event held at AGAPE International in Culver City, California. All three events were full of light and   positive energy and all three demonstrated the power of  gratitude.

Recently I have been asked to organize an event  that will take place on April 22,2016.  April 22nd, 2016 is Earth Day and the event  is Earth Gratitude Day.  It  is anticipated that more than five million people will participate online in EARTH GRATITUDE DAY. The inspiration for Earth Gratitude Day comes from the film TAPPING THE SOURCE. In that film more than  120 authors, actors, health experts,  visionary leaders, business leaders , artists and athletes were interviewed and  the majority  when asked the key to happiness responded that  some form of expressing gratitude and being of service to others were the two most important elements in their everyday lives. This  intrigued me at the time of  filming and has continued to intrigue  me.  I have since  read of reports  by scientists at major universities that expressing gratitude has  been  among  the highest correlates with  happy people in their studies and that recent neuroscience  is demonstrating on a biological level  chemical changes within  human beings who  express gratitude on a daily basis.

Observing  Dr. Sha  who performed healings at all three events I was reminded that the expression of gratitude is at the core of Dr. Sha’s healing practice.  At the end of each of his forgiveness practices,Dr. Sha thanks the divine for healing. Dr. Sha also asks everyone to remember to say “ thank you, thank you, thank you” at the end of each healing session. Dr. Sha is not asking people to thank him. Dr. Sha  is asking people to thank their source whether they believe in God or just a scientific principle for all that they receive, not just the healing  experience but  for life itself. Dr. Sha always thanks the divine and the DAO whenever he does a healing. For major healings he  does more than just express gratitude in words, he has members of his family in China burn offerings of thanks to the higher beings that he believes  provides the healings.

Another lesson  related to gratitude that  can be learned from Dr. Sha is his constant expressions of 13941544468_2d210be211_ogratitude to all who serve him. As his literary agent and biographer Dr. Sha is constantly  thanking me and  giving me public appreciation for my small role in helping him with his mission. Dr. Sha thanks everyone who assists him whether their contribution is large or small. At AGAPE Dr. Sha did not just thank  Michael Beckwith the founder of AGAPE  for the opportunity to utilize the AGAPE Sanctuary Hall but all those who worked behind the scenes to assist. Dr. Sha always thanks  his divine channels and those who have volunteered to experience his healings. After every  healing he always  says, “ give  xxx  a big hand” which is just another way of thanking those who are willing to receive the healings.

The depth of Dr. Sha’s gratitude to his own teachers can be  observed  in almost every encounter. Dr. Sha comes from a traditional Chinese background so for him his expression of gratitude is to bow down to his teachers.  The video recorded of Dr. Sha receiving a blessing and knowledge of sacred calligraphy from his 103 year old calligraphy teacher   shows Dr. Sha bowing down to her in deep reverence for several minutes. When Dr. Sha  is successful in healing  someone he immediately smiles and thanks the divine. He often bows down to divine spirit in deep  gratitude and reverence and constantly reminds all who listen that it is the divine who heals and not him.

Whether  you believe in Dr. Sha’s ability to perform healing miracles or not, there is much that can be learned from observing the  role of gratitude in  his life and his healing mission. It has been stated by the German Theologian Meister Eckhart  centuries ago that  the only prayer needed is “thank you”. Observing Dr. Sha is a constant reminder of this truth and for all the joy and blessings he has given me over the last several years representing him I am delighted to offer a formal thank you here. No doubt there are many people in your own life to whom  you can never  adequately express your gratitude. Perhaps it is  a parent,  sibling or  even your  own child.  I strongly suggest that sometime later today or  tomorrow you just  contact one of these angels in  your own life and just  say “thank you” If they ask you why you are thanking them, perhaps you should tell them because you are grateful they are  in your life. Gratitude does not have to be  complicated. Thank you really is enough.thank-you-490607_640

Thank  you for reading and have a wonderful day.

The Week that Was

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

Today is Columbus Day, a unique holiday that most companies in America ignore.  Waterside focuses on our relationship with the bank and the US postal service so when they take a holiday, so do we. Of course we started this policy more than thirty years ago when it really mattered if the bank and post office were open for our basic operations. Today, in 2014, we could be just as productive with both the bank and the post office closed, but everyone at the main office looks forward to getting the day off so our tradition continues.

Gayle and I just spent the last week driving from Cardiff to Ashland Oregon and back. Along the way we had a wonderful meeting with Michael Beckwith of Agape and then Marilyn Tam and her husband Kevin in Santa Barbara. We had one of the most amazing vegan meals I have ever eaten. I am a real meat lover and rarely have vegan meals, but Marilyn cooked some form of squash that was out of this world. Having an excellent red wine with the meal helped, but I have to confess that the dish itself was enough to convince me—even meat loving me— that I might become a vegetarian someday.

The following morning I had a call with my newest client Pamela Anderson. This was a bit of a coincidence given the vegan meal as Pamela is passionate about her “non-animal” diet and her newest book will focus on that topic among other health tips for maintaining beauty and vitality. Pamela is working with John Pierre who is best known as popular TV host Ellen’s personal trainer. John Pierre is also a nutritional expert and assures me that the sooner I give up meat the better I will feel. I am sure he is correct, but I am just not ready. Pamela’s diet is based primarily on her love and respect for animals, but she is also now working closely with John Pierre who will be a co-author the book. They are focusing on the health benefits of a vegan diet.

After the call with Pamela I had a delightful Santa Barbra brunch with Barbara DeAngelis; we had the most amazing pancakes along with a scintillating conversation. Barbara has just completed the manuscript for “Soul Shifts,” which will be published by Hay House next March. This is going to be a book that will speak to everyone who is ready for true transformation in all aspects of their lives. From Santa Barbara we headed up to Boulder Creek and meetings with Deborah Rozman and “Doc,” the founder of HeartMath. Deborah is the CEO and a remarkable businesswoman. Doc is the visionary behind HeartMath and a unique and extraordinary individual. Doc has campfire meetings that start at 9pm and run until 1am or in the morning. Doc rarely meets with outsiders these days, but Gayle and I have become close friends and regulars. Someday I may write a book based just on the conversations I had with him recently, but until then Doc prefers we keep our campfire chats confidential. (more…)
