This weekend I was able to experience four separate events with Dr. Sha—a preview of the 13 part television 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 gratitude 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 for reading and have a wonderful day.
