Phaaa decided "Global Healing Day" to be an annual occurrence

We invite everyone to join us again next year!
An article written by Rev Willy Vloadmans, a participant in "Global Healing Day"- 21st Dec 2012

Leading up to this night there has been a lot of hype regarding Mayan prophesies that the world was coming to an end.  In recent years we have been bombarded with reports of global warming, environmental issues and the idea of the Earth not able to cope, putting all life into danger.

The purpose of this night was to join likeminded groups around the world to pray for healing.  There are many religions in Melbourne and a good cross section of their representatives joined in leading prayers for healing of the individual, humanity and the planet.

Also present was Vegilious and Good Brew, both organisations committed to a healthy interaction with all other forms of life for our sustenance.

By inviting all religions we were able to let go of our biases, learn from the other and create a bond of peace that is a great conduit for healing.

The evening started with an Aboriginal smoking ceremony, in which most people participated for the cleansing of self. There was a tribute to Uncle Reg Blow who recently passed away and actively tried to harmoniously unite people.  Unfortunately Father Bob was not able to attend but sent his blessings.  The most surprising speaker, who represented Atheism,  spoke of science in a similar vein as the religious representatives’ spoke of their God.  Another highlight was a young aboriginal lady who enchanted all with a dream-time story.

At 10:10 we all joined in a guided meditation to bring divine forces of love and healing to this planet.

Finally the evening closed by everyone holding hands and forming a giant circle (around 200 people), sharing a multi-faith chant for healing and unity, led by Dya Singh.

In times of need humanity has turned to the great creator seeking spiritual help.  Religions have had their superstitions disproved, but Science cannot disprove the existence of God. However the true essence of each religion revolves around intelligence higher than mankind.  Religions believe that by tuning into this energy we can affect this world. What better way than everyone uniting regardless of labels and loving all of God’s creations?
