Healing Level III
In your energy healing work you will find that with the large majority of patients you are able to effect positive change to the patient's physical or mental afflictions, and facilitate for them a greater sense of health and well-being. The Chios techniques that you have learned—especially the Chios Level III techniques of Chakra Charging, Chakra System Rebalancing, the Radiatory Method and Seventh-Layer Healing—are often highly effective. You will sooner or later encounter a few patients who resist complete and lasting healing, however, despite your best efforts employing these powerful techniques. These patients can be assisted with the final and most powerful technique in Chios, beyond all you have learned thus far: Chios Frisson Healing.
Indicators of the Need for Frisson Healing:
The need for Frisson Healing is not indicated by the presence of any particular physical disease or mental disorder, or any combination of physical or mental symptoms. This is because the actual condition from which the patient suffers is not anything specifically physical or mental; the underlying energetic disease is a lingering disease and wasting illness of the being. There is no name for this condition, but it nevertheless exists in some patients. This condition produces physical and/or mental symptoms or diseases that will vary from patient to patient, and because they are thus variable, no specific physical or mental symptom can be used to diagnose this condition. The patient may have come to you with specific physical diseases or ailments and/or a mental disorder—or any combination of recurrent physical and/or mental symptoms—and you may have attempted to treat these visible symptoms but without lasting success. This wasting illness of the being may affect the body, producing physical symptoms, physical pain or diseases of the body's organs, but not always. It likewise may produce mental or psychological afflictions or disorders, but not always. The indicators that this condition is present and that Frisson Healing is required are:
- A chronically failing chakra that resists healing. This is the primary indicator. As you have probably experienced, a particular healing patient will often have one (or sometimes more) chakras which are especially weak and in need of healing. In the patient requiring Frisson healing, however, there is a difference: you will observe a chakra that you have charged and balanced (and probably used other healing techniques on as well) but that continues to be especially lacking in vitality and will frequently need recharging and/or rebalancing once more. You may perform these many times (even at frequent intervals), yet the chakra will nevertheless chronically relapse into a weak, impure and possibly also unbalanced state again. The more advanced the stage of failing weakness the more visible the indications will be, including a graying of the chakra color—a dullness, a lack of vitality, a clear indication of unhealth that does not go away. This condition is more likely to be found in chakras as they are located closer to the heart: it is most common of all in the 4th chakra, it is found almost as often in the 3rd and 5th chakras, is still found somewhat often in the 2nd and 6th chakras, and is less likely to be found in the 1st or 7th chakras. Usually it is only one chakra that exhibits this condition, but on seldom rare occasions you may find two such chakras, in a patient.
- Defect(s) in the 7th layer of aura that are resistant to healing. This is the secondary indicator of this condition that is almost always present, and that you may additionally be able to perceive, if you have acquired the ability to clearly perceive the 7th layer. The patient will have had defects on the 7th layer that you may have attempted to treat using Seventh Layer Focal Healing. If you have treated the 7th layer it will be in a greater state of health than otherwise, yet you will perceive area(s) that remain chronically resistant to full healing and are still not as they should be. You may find only one such area in the 7th layer that resists healing, but in the more advanced stage of this condition you may find two or possibly even more such areas. These area(s) are most likely to be on the upper torso and across the head, but can be found anywhere over the upper front of the body. These areas of the 7th layer that do not heal may be more subtle and difficult for you to discern than the chronically failing chakra that is the primary indicator of this condition, but will almost always also be present. These two indicators—chronically failing chakra(s) and defects in the 7th layer that resist healing—are signs of wasting through which this condition of wasting of the being manifests.
- An intuitive sense, that develops in the healer, that the patient suffers from this wasting illness of the being. Care must be taken, however, and this can be difficult to sense. Often the patient will suffer from this condition yet subconsciously learn to feign health when it is present. The patient does not do this consciously nor to deceive, but for the purpose of continuing to function and act in the world. The physical and mental symptoms that the patient suffers from—and that you at first attempt to treat with other techniques—can cloud your perception at first, such that you do not perceive this underlying energetic illness. And yet you may find that there develops in you a knowing that is felt by your whole being—an impression that emerges in your entire being—that the patient actually suffers from this wasting illness of the being that is actually producing the various more visible physical and mental symptoms. You will then know to look for the primary and secondary indicators discussed above, if you have not already noted them.
This wasting illness of the being is usually caused by a deep trauma in the patient's past that has not been healed, either a lingering serious physical or mental illness or deep psychological or spiritual pain. These may have occurred earlier in the patient's present life or (quite commonly) in a past life. The resulting condition is not merely a mental condition, but is analogous to psychological depression. It is a depression of the being, resulting from deep trauma. The patient may not consciously know of the trauma, pain or illness that is the actual cause of the condition (it can be from early in life or from past lives) but will rather know of the other illnesses, other pains, other struggles and complaints that have resulted. The underlying condition is a serious one—perhaps the most serious ever encountered by the energy healer. The only really effective treatment is Chios Frisson Healing.
The Chios Frisson Healing Technique:
The Frisson Healing technique should not be applied to any specific chronic physical diseases or ailments and/or mental disorders, but only when you have ascertained the existence of this underlying lingering disease and wasting illness of the being, according to the diagnostic conditions given above. It should only be used after you have made certain it is necessary, and not under any other circumstances. The word "Frisson" is a French word that, like the word "Chios," has no exact translation into English. The meaning of "Frisson" is akin to a sudden shiver, shudder or shock. Unlike all other techniques in Chios, the Frisson Healing technique is a "shock treatment." It is a shock to restore the being within the chakra, to bring healing and vigor once more to the chakra(s) and the areas of the 7th layer that have also been affected.
Before employing the Frisson Healing technique on a patient, the patient must first be placed into the best possible state of energetic health. The patient must have recently received complete healing treatment(s) including Chakra Charging, Chakra System Rebalancing and Seventh Layer Healing. This healing work may have been performed by you or by another Chios healer competent in the techniques. Note that Seventh Layer Healing will have necessarily been included, as the patient requiring Frisson Healing will have defects on the 7th layer. The patient must have had this work done within the past three months (at a very maximum), or preferably within just a few weeks, so he or she is ready to receive the Frisson treatment. This is required. You can then proceed with the Frisson Healing technique, which is done in two parts: 1) treatment of the chakra(s) in need, and 2) treatment of the area(s) of the 7th layer in need. Proceed as follows:
With the patient on the treatment table, observe the condition of the chakra system using the Chios techniques, and confirm the chakra(s) in need. Most often, it will be one chakra only. Usually you will have knowledge of the chronically failing chakra from your previous experience giving treatments to the patient. Stand on the patient's right side, positioning yourself near the chakra, and call in the energy using visualization and the Chios symbols, as you usually do at the beginning of treatment. Ask your patient to remain relaxed but perfectly still, during the procedure. When you are ready, place your hands held level but apart, palms-down, directly above the affected chakra in the corresponding layer of aura. If you are treating the 4th (heart) chakra, for example, you will have your hands not at the body surface (1st level), not at 5 to 6 inches above (2nd level), not 10 to 12 inches above (3rd level), but at about 15 to 18 inches above the body surface (the 4th incremental level). Note that you are using the same 5-6 inch increments you have used for Chakra Charging and the Radiatory Method, but that your hands will not change levels, as when you use those techniques, but will remain at this highest level—the corresponding aura level—while you treat the chakra with the Frisson technique.
Your hands will also be in a new hand position unique to this Frisson technique: the Frame. Hold your hands such that your wrists are not curved but so the hands are held easily and relaxed, near each other but not touching. The thumb of each hand should be open and outstretched away from the fingers of its hand, such that the two thumbs are pointing towards each other yet not touching. The fingers of each hand should be held together but relaxed, and palms flat, but without the index finger of one hand touching the index finger of the other. The hands are also not held as far apart as when doing Chakra Charging or the Radiatory Method: there should be a gap, between the tip of the thumb on one hand and the tip of the thumb on the other hand (the thumbs are pointing towards each other) equal in inches to the number of the chakra (a 4 inch gap between thumbs for the heart chakra, for example). There should likewise be a gap between the tip of the index finger of one hand and the tip of the index finger of the other hand equal in inches to the gap between the thumbs (again, a 4 inch gap for the heart chakra, for example). The hands are flat and level, palms down, and form a "triangle" shape (but with the specified gap between the thumbs and also the index fingers). Be aware that you will be channeling the energy downwards into the chakra from your hands, while they are in this position.
Now clear your mind—release all thoughts, release all business and concerns of the mind, release even any awareness of your patient. You will need, and use, great power of visualization when you employ the rest of this technique. Your eyes may be open or closed—whichever is more comfortable for you. Continue by visualizing the Chios symbol, in color, from the Basic Progression, standing on its edge vertically and facing you, in the middle of the Frame you have made with your hands. You will use a green Trine for the heart chakra, for example. The Chios symbol should be approximately 2 inches high, regardless of which chakra is being treated and thus how wide the gap is between the hands. It is not flat, but as if it were a real object, perhaps 1/4 inch deep, standing on its side facing you and floating between your hands. You must visualize the color of the symbol as especially vibrant—a very vibrant green Trine for the heart chakra, for example—even if there is some resistance to that vibrancy due to the weakness of the chakra or the illness of the patient.
And now you will now prepare to send a burst of brilliant light: the Frisson. You must see this intense burst of light coming from yourself—not from your head nor any other single part of your physical body, but from your entire being. It comes from you—from your core being perhaps somewhere near the center of your body—as a funnel of intense light which focuses down intensely and passes through the Chios symbol and then to a pinpoint just behind the symbol. It is a very focused and intense pure white clear bright light—a powerful, extremely intense shock of light. Think of a brilliant flash of light from a very intense strobe, camera flash or nuclear explosion. It is not unusual to feel almost a shudder or shivering in yourself, as you send this brilliant flash of light. The burst of light passes through and illuminates the symbol, immediately before focusing to a pinpoint behind it, and as it illuminates the symbol it energizes, cleanses and purifies it, with the resulting energy burst transmitted downwards, from your hands, not as light but as intensified and purified energy sent downwards into the chakra. Note that the burst of light does not go down into the patient's chakra, but just focuses into the pinpoint after it illuminates the symbol. The light itself is therefore sent to the corresponding aura layer, not to the patient or directly to the chakra. Note also that you are not using the hands above the body in the Frame position to disperse energy, as with Chakra Charging or the Radiatory Method, but to focus energy. (Optional Note: The burst of light can be thought of as not ending at this pinpoint, immediately behind the Chios symbol, but continuing to infinity. If you have become familiar with "Advanced Meditation," the final exercise in Chios Mediation, this concept will make sense to you).
To perform the Frisson technique you must therefore, in your mind's eye and using your power of visualization, perform three things at once: 1) you are sending the energy downwards, from your hands, into the chakra; 2) you are visualizing the Chios symbol in vibrant color, floating in the middle of the Frame, and 3) you are visualizing the brilliant burst of light, from your core being, as a funnel focusing through the Chios symbol to a pinpoint just behind it. You are not merely "pretending to see" these things, but are releasing all other aspects of your awareness and sensing and becoming these visualizations, as one act. As with all the powerful Chios techniques, you are actually healing with your entire consciousness, through the use of this Frisson technique. This is the most powerful, focused visualization in Chios.
Send the Frisson flash for a brief but intense moment, using the instructions given above, and then withdraw the light, cease visualization of the Chios symbol and drop your hands and rest for a minute or two. Then repeat the entire exact technique once again. Stop and rest again, for a few minutes, and then repeat the technique one final time—a total of three Frissons, each sent just as described above. This completes treatment of the chakra. You will need to repeat the entire procedure if there is another chakra in need of the procedure.
After treating the chakra this way, briefly evaluate the patient using the passing of hands, to ensure that the patient has not become disturbed. You may detect a pulsing or throbbing from the chakra you have just treated, but this is of no concern. If you detect a substantial disturbance from the entire energy field of the patient, however, allow the patient to rest for a while, before continuing.
You will then continue by treating the 7th layer of aura. Step back from the patient and observe the condition of the 7th layer using the Chios technique for viewing this higher layer, and confirm the area(s) which harbor defects. Usually you will have knowledge of the area(s) with chronic defects, from your previous experience giving treatments to the patient. Stand on the patient's right or left side, as needed, positioning yourself near the first area of the 7th layer requiring treatment. Again ask your patient to remain relaxed but perfectly still, during the procedure. You will use the Frission technique again, as when you treated the chakra(s), but with some important changes. When you are ready, position your hands again to form the Frame, but this time with a gap of only 2-3 inches between the tips of the thumbs and the tips of the index fingers. The palms of the hands should now be about 6 to 8 inches above the surface of the 7th layer—note that they will therefore be considerably further above the surface of the body than when treating a chakra (perhaps a total of 3 1/2 feet above the body surface, more or less). Also, your hands may not necessarily be held completely level, because if you are treating an area towards the side or top of the eggshell-shaped 7th layer the level of the hands will be directly above and parallel to the surface of the eggshell. Once again clear your mind—release all thoughts, release all business and concerns of the mind, release even any awareness of your patient. Prepare again to use your power of visualization, and you may again have your eyes open or closed—whichever is more comfortable for you. This time, however, you do not visualize a Chios symbol inside the Frame. You will, however, send the Frisson as before, as a burst of brilliant pure white light, coming from the core of your being, but now as a funnel of intense light focusing into the entire area between your hands—the Frame you make—and then spilling out from there to pour over the affected area of the 7th layer. As it spills, it is as if you are pouring the light through, and it runs and flows across the affected area of the 7th layer.
Send the Frisson flash for a brief but intense moment, using the instructions given above, and then withdraw the light and drop your hands and rest for a minute or two. Then repeat the entire exact technique once again. Stop and rest again, for a few minutes, and then repeat the technique one final time—a total of three Frissons, each sent just as described above. This completes treatment of that region of the 7th layer. You will need to repeat the entire procedure for each area of the 7th layer in need.
After you finish treating the patient with the Frisson Healing technique, ask the patient to relax and rest, for at least 5 minutes, on the healing table. It is very important that the patient then rest for the remainder of the day, and not engage in any busy activity of body or mind.
It is possible that the patient will require more than one Frisson Healing session—especially if the condition is in an advanced stage. The Frisson Healing technique should not be performed more than once, at the most, in a three month period, however. It should not be necessary to perform Frisson Healing more than a total of three times, in any patient.
