Your Healing Ground – The Power of Eight

A couple of weeks ago I finished reading “The Power of Eight” by Lynne McTaggart. It is one of the most powerful and inspiring books I have read. In a nutshell, it’s about the science behind group healing and setting intentions.

I’ve seen the extraordinary power of a small group to create hope and healing in the lives of every group member. I’ve understood that the most powerful transformational state of all is altruism. Moving away from self-help is our most potent healer. I now believe that group intention could indeed heal the world. …. The healing is all in the participation, the desire to pray with one voice…. Rather than leaving it up to God,(“Thy will be done”) we recognize the power in ourselves as creators and attempt to take charge of our own fates.

Lynne McTaggart “The Power of Eight. Harnessing the Miraculous Energies of a small Group to Heal Others, Your Life, and the World.”

When we come together as a group, the individual recognizes him or herself as part of a greater whole. We realize we are not separate beings after all. I have felt the power of this in yoga community Sanghas and in sacred places.

Whenever we come together as a group and share an intention, we tune into each other and feel a powerful connection to loving Presence and Spirit.

This poem from Danna Faulds describes it so beautifully


When we sit here in a 
circle and grow still,
the energy of Spirit
fills us. Until we
surrender to silence,
we stay on the choppy
surface of the mind.
As the breath grows
quiet, we go behind
thought, beneath
confusion, fear and
doubt. When we sit
here in a circle and
grow still, the mystery
of truth and vastness
transforms our separate
energies into one heart,
one consciousness,
one being - present
and fulfilled.

~ Danna Faulds from "One Soul" 

This has been a call to action for me and some of my dear Yogi friends. We are beginning to form a group to support each other and for others who need healing and love.

When Russia began threatening the Ukraine, we joined Lynn McTaggart on Facebook, setting our intention for peace. Every day at 9.00am Pacific Time, 12.00 noon Eastern Time, 17.00 UK Time, 18.00 Western Europe Time, people from all over the world come together and set the intention for peace in Ukraine. You will find her Intention Experiment for Ukraine here.

Today at 12.00noon ET, brought together several groups seeking peace. There wasn’t enough room on Zoom for everyone.

If you can’t get through to a particular group, then please continue to meditate or pray for ten minutes at that time. You will be connecting to thousands around the world.

I believe that together, we can bring peace and heal the world.

If this lights up your heart and inspires you, then I would highly recommend that you read Lynne McTaggart’s book.

If you are interested in joining our Healing Circle then please reach out to me. I call it Your Healing Ground.

    Val, this is a great summary. I forwarded it on to two friends Kathy & Clare (both of whom are reading the book) and I believe they may be interested in joining.

      • Open and sending merrily dear lady, and I have to admit the energy this time has been amazingly strong. There are so many in this day and age against the stupidity of war but seemed to just ‘be afraid’ and not do anything. But for the first time my hair is standing up on my arms, I’m smiling inside as we are finally beginning to stand in our truth and open that love we have found. I love it ๐Ÿ˜€ โค๏ธ ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿฆ‹
